Something for Thoughtful Citizens
to Reflect On.
An Extract from the Speech of
Senator Thurman at Cleveland,
on the 27th of September.
1 shall speak first of State rights.
The time was when no statesman
dared to deDy ihat there were cor
tain important, indispensable right
which belonged to the State, and
that if the State were deprived of
them this tiovernmeiit would be
come a despotism the worst of des
potisms. But at the breaking out
ol the war and afterward, our oppo
nents took advantage oi circumstan
ces to centralize power, 1 wish, be
fore going further, to nave it dis
tinctly understood taat what I shall
speak of will have nothing whatev
er to do with secession. There is
no man of candor who will deny
that for the last ten years the ten
dency has been and now is to con
solidate, to centralize the power in
the Federal or General Government.
"What is it that made this country
what it was to our fathers, whatt
is to ourselves, and what we hoped
it would be to our posterity? It
was because this was said to bu a
free government. Not the govern
ment of a monarch, an oligarchy or
an aristocracy ; but the government
of the people; and a government
cannnol be free unless it is of the
people. New England had the hon
or ol selling the brightest example
of Democratic government of any
colony which ever pcitled in a new
country. It was New England
which established the township sys
tem. In he township the people
met together and decided questions
concerning them. The lowest po
litical division we bave in Ohio is
the school district, and the people
of these districts decide district mat
ters. Rising from that we come to
townships, the people deciding town
sbip matters without interference
from other townships. Ascending,'
we come to counties, the inhabi
tants settling county qucstior.3 a
more themselves. Next we come
V? the State, and it sed to be that
Ihe people of the States settled
State matters atrong themselves
alone. That is the only true ej-s-lem
of free government. But there
are questions which concern more
than one State, and thu the ticccs
sity of a federal or general govern
meut, which is to decide questions
affecting all the States and our for
eign relations. r ITenco our forefath
ers drew up the Federal Constitu
tion. That happy systc i of local
self-government and of a general
government at the same time,
though complicated, is perfect and
harmonious, and has been thes admi
ration of every political economist
who ever studied it. But, as
have said, the tendency of the last
ten years has been to take from the
States their dearest and most sa
cred rights crjd. vest them in
general government. The lime
now come for the p'coplo to s:ty
whether it is for their interest that
this shall go on.
My colleague. Mr. Sherman, in
recent speech, remarked that the
effect of our late war was to fuse
the country into one great cation.
Fusel That means melted, doesn't
it? And, as there was nothing else
- to melt down, the States must have
been melted, cr fused, and tho pow
er consolidated in the government,
which would leave us what Jackson
pronounced the most descipable
de.polisms. Again, I might quote
the United States Attorney Gcner-

a few woi ds of change to adapt

Out Congress, the first tiling, com

Nay, more, they compelled them to

Before 1SC3 yon got your bank
notes from banks authorized by tho
States, governed by the States, and
the whole matter under the control
of the people. Slate banks existed
before tho Federal Constitution, and
not until recently did any one dare
deny that the State had a right to
crssile banks. But what have we
seen? The Radical party has tax
ed every State bank out of exis
tence for the avowed purpose or es
tablishing tho system of National
batiks. Now, if you will tako time
to thmfe, you will 6cc that when
iLe General Government takes into
its hands the whole control of the
bank circulation, it grasps almost
unlimited power, and approaches
more nearly to despotism. Does it
not look as though State rights are
being ignored ?
An unlimited right to construct
works of internal improvrtnent in

tation than their otate charters al
low, has been conferred by Con
gress upon State corporations, and
to other corporations of tho sort,

given by Congress that the States

The iGSite corporations aro thus, on

Handsome Compliment to a
In his speech in the Eighteenth

E. Stevenson, the Jiepnblican nom

Disraeli on the Distribution
of Political Power.
At tho annual meeting of the
Royal and Central Bucks Agricul
tural Association, held Sept. 15, Mr.
Disraeli replied to the toast of the
"Hoaso ot Lords and Commons."
Having referred to the agricultural
prospects of the county, bo proceed
ed to say: I hardly like to sit down
without naking 6onie reference to
those topics which so much occupy
tlio nttcTitton of the pcopio of this
country and of Europe, ai tho pres
ent moment. We have all witness
ed great and strange events of late.
nd it is m.ire than possible it isj
probable--lb at wo shall all of us
witness, and even, pi r haps, soon,
greater and stranger events. There
seems a likelihood that there will
bo in Eutopo a very trying time.
I think that it may be some conso
lation to us that the L:st lorty
years of this century have not been
wasted, though there may be diff
erences of opinion upon a variety
ot questions which have beer, dis
cussed, and which have led to leg
islation. I think that all impar
tial persons must admit that, on the
whole, tho progress of this country
during the last forty yours lias
been decided nnd considerable. I
think it is a rSatter of great con
gratulation at this moment when
empires vanish and tepublics arise,
and the" greatest changes occur or
are threatened in every pr.rl of Ku
uope that three years ago, wilh,
if not the entire, yet with the very
general concurrence of opinion
among sensible men of all sections,
end without any disruption of po
litical parties which 1, for one,
iook npon as tho greatest misfor
tunes which could happen to Eng
land we did seitlo the question of
tho distribution of political power
in this counti-3', on principles which
I believe are firm, and which at
this moment allows every man to
feel secure and confident in the jk
litical establishments of his country.
I have always felt myself that if
England was truo to herself there
was no fear. I believe that Eng
land now is truo to herself, and
therefore I - think great, vast, and
startling as arc tho changes that
even hourly occur, we, as Eoglish
mcn, need hot be appalled.

John Randolph, born 177.1, grew
to manhood in that part of Virginia
watered by the James and Appo
matox, which was the sceno of the
late encounters between tho north
ern and southern armies in the late
war. The Ilaiidolphs'wcre one the
most ancient families in Virginia,
and one the wealthiest, lie inher
ited from his lather an estate which
comprised ncarl fifty thousand
acres ot land, most of which was un
cultivated; and there was a, heavy
debt on part of it; so that this
possessor of land Ainough for a small
principality was not in affluent cir
cumstances until twenty-fivo years
of good management had paid off
his "debt and improved his planta
tion. Ho was always, however, in
indepci dent circumstances.
Left nn orphan in early life, Lis
education consisted m browsing
among the books of a Virginia
country house ; he had read almost
all tho well known works by the
time he was twelve years ot ago.
Ho attended Various school?, where
. . . .
he wi:h uoted for the violence of his
temper, and concluded by spending
a few months at Princeton College.
There ho fought a duel with a fel
low student, and oflicled a danger
ous wound upon his antagonist. He
showed ft singular want of those
genial qualities which enablo hu
man beings to live together in so
ciety. Ho gives us an insight into
his character m a letter which con

bright hazel eve and a beardless
i bin. Ilo had led a wandering,
desultorv life, reading misccllane-
ous books, alcom.ing to his exten
sive propertv, and mingling with
tho ardent politiciars of his party.
Bein a Democrat, in the lulltwt
sense of the term, he opposed the
adoption of the constitution ; he
opposed many of the measuree of
General Washington's administra
tion ; and ho hated John Adams
with all tho favor of a Virginian
and a partisan. Allied to Jefferson
by marriage, he was also his friend
and supporter, and he owed much
to the benign, restraining influence
to Mr. Jefferson.
In tho Virg:r,ia of that day, it
was only men of fortune and family
who ever aspired to seals in Con
gress. In Ki.t twen'.y-lhird year be
offered 'to represent his district
in tho House of Representatives;
and m the course of tho campaign
he had tho boldness to speak at an
out-of-doors meeting in rep!y to
Patrick Henry, the greatest orator
of his time. " On that occasion,
which was the last appearance of
tho aged orator in public. Governor
Henry spoKe w ith much of his an
cient fire, and all his former iin
pressiveness; It was at this meet
ing that ft Baptist minister, offend
ed at tho extravagant applause be
stowed upon the great orator, re
buked the people, saying:
"k'r. Henry is not a god."
"No," said Putrick;Henry, in his
most winning nnd melting tones,
"no, indeed, my friend ! 1 am a
poor worm of the dust as fleeting
and unsubstantial as tho shadow ot
the cloud that flies over your hoad,
and is remembered no more.
After speaking tor a considerable
time with wonderful effect, holding
the whole multitude iif breathless
silence. Mr. Henry sunn back into
the arms of his ftieuds, ono of whom
said at the moment ,
"The sun has set in aii his glory."
It ceitainly required extraordi
nary audacity in a young man to
select such a time tor his maiden
speech. Undaunted, however, John
Randolph rose, and presenteJ him
self to tho multitude. Tall and
slender, with bis light hair combed
away from his forehead, ho would
have looked moro like a girl than
young man, but for his blao frock
coat, his yellow breeches, and his
white top boots. Ho displayed an
instinctive tact at tho openingof the
address. Ho stood for a few sec
onds silent before tho people, his
lips quivering, and his eyes moist
with tho tears wrung from him, as
from the audience, by Mr. Henry's
closing words. He began by speak
ing in terms of the deepest respect
for tho aged orator who had just
retired, and apologized for presum
ing to address the people in oppo
sition to ono of tho august and ven
erable fathers of tho Revolution.
"But," said be, it is an honest diff
erence of opinion, and 1 hope to be
pardoned while I express myself
boldly and frcoly on tho great
questions which divide and agitato
the minds ot tho people."
Ho spoke for three hours, with a
success only surpassed by the first
speech of Patrick Henry himself,
many years before. As ho sat down
amid tho universal applause of the
spectators, Patrick Henry turned
to a bystander, and said :
"I havn't seen the little dog bo-
fore since ho was at school , he
was a great atheist then."
Coming up to young Randolph,
he took him by the hand and said :
'Young man, yon call me father:

say unto theo, (taking hold of both
his hands.) Keep justice, keep
truth, and you will livo to think
Ho was elected almost as a mat
ter of course, and took hs seat in
the Houso when he was scarcely of
ihe ago required by the constitu
tion twenty-fivo years. He become
instantly notorious. Somo foolish
young officers, offended by the free
dom of his remarks upon President
Adams, pushed against him in the
theatre, which ho reported to the
President, in a letter of severe dem
ocratic simplicity that Mr. Adams
thought it insulting and referred it
to tho Cabinet for their opinion.
This affair called tho attention of
the whole country to tho new mem
ber, which he retained by the bold
ness and influence of bis oratory.
When tho Democrats camo into
power, in 1801, ho was chooscn
chairman of the Committee of Wavs
and Means, which w.is Ihe most
important position in the House, as
it now is. During tho. first few
years or Mr. Jefferson's administra
tion, this fiery and enccntne star
was kept in an orbit by the Presi
dent's mild, commanding influence.
The time came, when that influence
wa no longer adequate, and Mr.
Randolph suddenly abandoning his
party, went into opposition. He
denounced tho waroflS12in un
measured terms. Weakened by
disease, and disappointed in love,
the sharpness of his oratory in
creased. Towards the doso of his
life, his attention was drawn to re
ligion ; and, after many years of
painfal inquiry, he renounced his
atheism, and bect-mo ft somewhat
aealons, thongh not very consistent,
member of tho episcopal Church.
It was after becemmg a communi
cant Ibol he fought his celobrated
duel with Henry Clay, in whkh
two 6hcts were exchanged, and
neither party harmed. On bis
death-bed ho emancipated all his
slaves ; or rather, he confirmed in
the most solemn manner thnt por
tion of his will by which their free'
dora was secured. He also left to

A CANDID REVIEW.
A Leading Republican Journal
on Congress and Its doings.
"It is tolerably clear
that nobody in the Republican par
ty looks back to its performances in
Congress, during the last tw years,
with, any pride or sntisfit'.-tion. In
deed, the address of the National
Committee confesses that the least
said about it the better. Two years
more of such helplessness and inca

tions of the day. would, probabfy. if
nothing belter turned tip in the in
terval, make even the Democrats,
with all their sins npon their heads,
acceptable to a majority of the vo
ters." "Mr, Bontwcll is armed with full
pover to 'fund,' at a lower rate of
interest, and wo believe the new
bonds are being rapidly prepared in
Washington, but the names of the
mysterious 'German Bankers' who
were so eager to take them and of
whom wo bave heard so often, havo
not been revealed. We venture to
say that they have been slain on the
bloody fields of Woerth, and that
tho bonds will, for the present, have
to lie in the treasury vaults, the hoa

is changed from top to bottom nearly
every year combined with tho
weight of its duties, also helps to
strengthen tho speculators and cap
italists, and to concentrate in a few
hands all the most profitable trades.
It is only tho great operators having
control of largo funds who can suc
cessfully contend with the ups and
downs which the tariff has intro
duced into busines. It is only they
who can spare the labor and time
nocessary for tho work of lobbying
at Washington which the high du
ties make as necessary a part of any
greai manufacturer's busiucss cs the
yearly balancing of his booki aud
the repair of his machinery, and it
is only they who, if their efforts aro
unsuccessful, and sudden adverse
changes are mado in the tariff, can
mcot the crisis without mm. Un
der such a systom, there is no place
for small producers. It is as much
as they can do to meet the annual
uncertainties of trade ; the artificial
uncertainties they cannot provide
for. The consequence is that the
labor market, like all other markets,
passes every year more and more
under the control of a few capitalists,
