Closing Remarks of Gen.
Ward In Speech at Lebanon.
Horace Greeley U one of the
people, and the architect - 'of his
own fortune. In all his life not
one-tenth of one pet cent.' of his
receipts came , "fi-omV the , public
coffers. ' : Born . ou the ;. rugged
rocks.of New Hampshire, to no
estate but honest -.'.ncostry and
penury, his own i oil ... not only
; supplied his own I'mgat ! wants,
but aided to drive poverty from
the door of his' i -v.il v. , The
common '.school only
his only college. - Penniless and
friendless he entered t the great
metropolis, and by industry and
thrill amassed , a fortune, His
hand was ever open to help the
struggling around him, - and; his
heart ever opened to the cry of
the distressed. Honest, industri
ous and temperate himself, he
ever pitied and sought to reform
those who were not. Like most
Americans, he had a strong pas
sion lor politics, and earlv m
life the integrity of his character,
tne Dreadth oi Ins knowledge,
ana tne enthusiasm of his; nature
made him a power in the land.
His political ideas were adverse
to mine, out neitner l, nor . any
one, ever doubted his intellectu
al power and his moral .upright
ness. : .. .' ' ;
Horace Greeley has, for thirty
years, had a .National reputation.
He has borne an active Dart in
all the great struggles' of his age,
lie is eminently a man of ideas.
a thinker, a leader of the nennlft.
There is no subject of public in
terest on winch he has not ' spo
ken with frankness and vii?or.-.
He has been the peculiar disci-
pies ol nobody. Bold and orig
inal, he leads, and asks others to
follow, but nercV fttltcnr whether
they follow or not. Such a man
being a public journalist, speak.
mg Hvery day, and , discussiner
every passing event must nec
essarily say in a generation
much that is ill-considered and
crude. However sagacious and
o T" ttrrr
clear-sighted he may be, he must
magnify out of their real proDor-
tions ideas of policies which seem
tor the moment to promise con
trolling influence over the future.
and the quly wander Is how In a
long life of journalism a mind so
active and : enthusiastic should
have blundered bo - rarely. 1 He
nas, in tne main, kept up. too.
with the spirit of the &se. ' No
antiquated dogma. except protec
tion pas rounci layor in his eyes,
and out of that Eas sprung most
of the errors, aa I regard themi
of his political policy,
But in this he does not stand
alone. It is an idea ; which, in
its various ramifications, ,, has
filled the minds of many thinkers
and statesmen. . Many who have
thrown it off tq riff retain
it as to other concerns, and Seem
unwilling to admit thftt the neQ
ple can manage'' their riwplest
concerns without the aid of the
Government It must b ailm?.
ted that Greeley belongs to this
scnooi oi tmnKers. enthusiast
ically devoted to popular richts.
he treats the people as under the
perpetual guardianship ,, p the
the creator tq the creature. His
policy - sends , the, , supervising
hand of the Government into all
the concerns, and seeks to shape
by political action even the hab
its and ideas of the' peoDle.
This whole theory of the funo-

may be said, Horace Greeley is

and steel claws 'and teeth. It is
worked by clock-work. A bel

tail at will to a belligerent size,
and by a tremolo attachment,
causes, at the same time, the
patent cat to emit all , noises' of

than at sunrise, because you will '
have used unprofitably 6ne day
more of your strength and your
allotted term of life. .
