His speech at West Chester was
on puss i it events. He spoke for two
hours, and wns repeated! v interrupt

ed the auaieace to select (he subject,
and, alter eulogizing President Lin

brief extract of his defense:
DSFBNaa of GENERAL SHERMAN.
Tu ire id two kinds of men afloat,
positive and negative. One goes
down stream, and nobody Bees him
the other goes up. and all cheer.

entire man; a hundred pounder
among the pocket pistol generals.
Laughter. As usual, you will find
me against the voice of the nation. It
was ho in England,, in Boston where
I was knocked down laughter, and
t Chicago where I was knocked up
loud laughter, but succeeded in
breaking up that rotton platform.
Applause. The other day, in Wall
Bti-eet, I followed Gen. But.er, and
did my best at Washington to spike
hi) gun. To detend Butler was to at
tack Grant and censure the Presi
dent. Again I stand alone 'and, un

Unlike General Sherman, hia pen is

What has Sherman done! Where
is the boasted independence of the
American press, that they have not
pointed out that Hlierman has planted
one foot on the American flag, anoth
er on the Constitution, aud proclaims
that peace shall reign from the Potom
ac to Rio Grande only by t!ie death
of rebellion, and that rebels can only
become citizens again by obeying the
laws He leavea a! I to the Constitu
tion and the Supreme Court.

facts. Perhaps Sherman has an au

This impostor quack editor, we
should say some weeks ago, thrust
in oar face some of his characteristic

tbat the lellow couia not evaae mem

a knave, or a compound of both. W e
need uot again go over the ground al
ready traversed. But, this latest copy,
ot Jerry Sna, inspired by a hope
of evading, and pettifogging out of,
the matters in contoversy, had the
cheek to quote the Constitution of the
United States. As respects this in

that nobody for an instant believes it;

What about the antecedents of the
caitiff who has thus shown his readi

who have criticised the public ants

Jerry Sneak of the Jacks n Stand
ttrazm-choeked though he be, he
will not deny his thorough sympathy
with the Btirtling deeds of October 17
and 13. 1859. Not only is thie so,
but maugre a rank hypocritical pre
pense he now and tbon sets up, revar
ence lor law, he is at heart as bitter
a rebel against the Constitution of
of our fatherst as John Brown ever
was. Ue can treacherously utter such
sentences as, "Mr. udoiianan saw
this good government being over
thrown, he had the Constitution and
the law on his side," etc., etc.. when
these other sentences, by him written
and by him published, February 23,
1900, give Mim me no in uir inruai;
"When Mr. Tripp was at home a

the Legislature had no power. Now
1 must confess tbat I am sick of this
eant about the scantity of the Conati

people of the United States formed a
