10. Resolved, That under the rule of

recent military orders in Kentucky, tne

shall be perfectly fair and equitable, that
public expenditure shall be reduced to the
lowest peace standard consistant with the

necessary officers dispensed with, and that
the Tariff and Internal Revenue Laws
shall be reduced to the exact revenue point

condemn the policy of the party in power
in creating thousands of millions of Gov

for the support of the States in which
they reside, and thereby creating an odi

and we declare it to be the immediate duty
of Congress and fie State Legislature to
use all legal and constitutional power they
possess to subject money so invested to a
burden ol taxation equal to that imposed

SPEECH
—OF—
HON. R. P. RANNEY,
AT THE
DEMOCRATIC STATE
CONVENTION,
HELD AT
COLUMBUS, OHIO,
COLUMBUS, OHIO, AUGUST 24, 1865.
0:i taking t!ia chair as PiosMant
ofthe Convention, Hon
Ii. P. Han-
ncy Bpolco aa follows.
Gl5Kfl.EXIBN OF THE CoNVKVTION:
return to you my sincoro find lioart
fuit thaota t'oi thia undeserved ex
prcasiina of your confi.lonco in ino.
Bringing to tlio discharge of the
liutk-j oi" the chpir no experience,
under some circumstances I should
distrust tav ability to conduct the
proceedings of this Convention, t.8
fiey ought to be; bat, knowing, as
do, that Ihe gentlemen of tho Con
vention aro here for one singlo, un
divided purpoao of accomplishing,
decently and ia order, tho business
for which thoy have assembled, I do
not anticipate that any. particular
ability will be required on the part
tho chair, And whtlo 1 rotnm
my thanks, gentleman of the Con
vention, for the honor you have con
ferred npo me, allow me, for a sin
gle moment, to congratulate you,
and, through you, tho Democracy of
Ohio, for your present position, per
fect organization, and great strength.
Applause. : .,. .;
It ia now many years since I have
been acquainted with tho assembla
ges of the Democracy of this State
in Convention. For the last four
yeais I need not say to any body
through which we have passed, what
fiery ordeal the Democracy of this
State have encountered;1 and the as
toni8hing fact stands out prominent
ly that, notwitnstanding, ail the per
secutions, and. all. the assaults to
which tbe Domociacy of this State
have, during that unfortunate period,
been subjected, still each returning
year has showu that tbe body was
growing each returning of tbe
votes, ea they came io, showed that,
instead of persecution ' runuipg you
down, and ;, diminishing ; . your
strength, and decreasing your num
bers, they are all the time elevating
them. Why .is this! ., No association
of men no party, gathered together
for mere sinister, or temporary, or
selneb purpose, could say this. " Lhey
would have been broken iota atoms
with the amount of persecution and
nnnrpRHion which, we hava encounter
ed. is because, feUow-citizena
.
and wo should always bear this ia
miod because there lies right at tlio
foundation of Democratic faith the
sacred trust of preserving tho greut
.and essential rights of the great mass
of tne people. :
.That is the secret of tho wliola of
it. , And lot me give you t! : i 3 one
encoataging word,tlmt juat as longas
youjare true to yourselves, and truo
to tE'e great interest of tho people,
porj ira invinciblo. Applause
Tbiworld, the flesh and the devil,
mcombine against you, but with
out, effect. Applause And now,
gentlemen, without undertaking to
detafnyou any lungth of time, for I
am wholly unprepared to snouk to
speak to you as I would havu douo
wtinom uuumatuug to uoiaiu you
for p,ny lentn of time lo co over an"
of the various topics thut now agitata
tlio public mind, and upon, which
you are called to act, let mo for a
single moment take a muiicg at the
past, in omor ttio uouer , to assure
- . 1 .1 t A.
ourselves ol our present position and
o,ur:prosent duties.
Liown to the advent ot the present
party in power a little over (bur
yfeira ago no country on tho I'acu of
thn eaitu presented such attr-ictiotia
as Ufa beloved and happy country of
ouM. In no country on tho race of
eiirlh, wore all men's l ights so well
and so , perfectly respecled. From
thiiteon small colonics upon the At
lantic seaboard, we ha 1 seen grow
up. under tho inBpiun ' iulluuiico of
Doitiocratic piinciples, a population
ofove'r thtrty millions of pooplo,
and more than thirty States. Instead
of being hemmed in subbtautially by
tho Allegheny Mountains, as wo
were at tho outsot, wa had spread
from ocean to oceau, until our flag
floutud on both shores of tho conti
nent.' That was our condition font
yeau ao, and it was duo, under God
and with Gold's blessing, to those
great principles of Democratic faith
hai look to the gooJ of the masses
--ihopo principle that were formed
at nn .?arly period by the great patri
ots shl Btutoeineff w&O.were' the
foutldgrs of our orgau'zation.
From tnia pleahiug state of facts,
let Vi look at what exists at present.
Cat four years of time havo been
ueoeesary for the party who ime
etiecaded in overthrowing tho Dem
ocratic party, to change wholly the
entire faca of tlio country and its
affttrs. Instead of that abaoluto
security of person and property which
we realized before, who does not look
back upon this sad period c,nd see
what has been dono. Insload of a
united couutry from ocean to ocean,
the map has been torn asunder and
bathed ic blood. Instead of a united
and frea people, standing a3the rep
resentatives ff republican govern
ment in the Western horaiaphure to
the re6t ofthe world, wo have pro
sontud, in the last four years, faction
and disunion that have torn us os-
sunder, and rendered us . utterly
ubsurd and disgraced in the eyes of
foreign countries. Instead ot that
absolute security we eijoyed before
tho accession of tuesa men to power,
what have wo witnessed During
the past four years all our guarantees
of liberty have been broken down,
the writ of Habeas Corpus, the right
to entertain your own opinions and
express them, and the freedom of the
press, have allbsen stricken down
and trampled in tbe dust. - With
this look at tbe past, let us adopt the
language ofthe immortal Jefferson
iu his inaugural address:
''When in moments of terror and
alarm, we have departed from the
paths that lead to happiness and safe
ty, let up retrace onr stops and go
back to the consideration of those
great principles upon which our
fathers have founded the govern
ment." That ia onr duty to-day. We are
not here to create, or to recommend
creation. We are not here to build
dd a hotter system than our fathers
ofthe revolutionary time, . made for
os nothing ot the kind. It is a
simple effort to go back again to tbe
Chart of our principles as recorded
by our fathers, and place ourselves
upon the ground occupied, and all
will be well.
Dut, gentlemen of the Conven
tion, what a herculean task is before
ns alll It need not been supposed
that we are to have no lot or part io
the matter. Who are we? We rep
resent more than 200,000 of the eleo
tors of this great and powerful State.
We represent more than 1,000,000
of tho DODulation of the State. That
population ia looking to you tovi8y,
- : .
with anxious solicitnde that you. shall
do for thero, and for tha cause of
trntb and righteousness, just what is
necessary to restore to them the bles
sings which lhey enjoyod prior to th(
advent ofthe new party that hac
come into power. That is what
aek you to do.
Bnti now, gentlemen, what is tin
first thing to bo dont? Tha first
thing is to bring our great arid glori
ous country together again. The
first thing, to which we rcuat direct
our attontion as free mon, leaving
the paet to tako care of itself, and
looking now to the discharge of oar
high duties for the future, is to co
operate manfully, resolutely and
autormineuiy, in restoring our coun
try, until we sue tho happy spoctac o
ol thirty odd Slates ajain in pi. at!,
represented in the Isational Couuoi'.
Applauso.J
How thu is to ba don) pnc'soly I
do not stop to inq iiro. My hand
and my heart sha'l ba with any lti'i
who, under the Constitution an I in
obedience to it, uss his best elLvts
to bring again iu'o tho National
Council and into too family ro-n.ron,
all those who won of our gloiioun
and extensivo country. l'avin all
this to do, my fellow citizens, wh it a
task is npon us btilj Hardly more
difficult wa3 tha task of nnturyin'
again thoso cities at tlio East lint
had been buried hundreds of feel
deep in tho eruptions from the
mountains. Hardly les thm rein
ing I'ompei'i from its burial placj, i
the business that now devolves upon
us is to rescue onr oi l genuine O. in
stitution and laws from tbs vast rub
bish that has boon hoapoJ upon Ibain.
Ia doing this, however, let tin say to
you a3 citizens in tha Irmest d;s
charge ot your ddtfes, it will ba your
task to sea that the bunion a which
tho party in power havo laid upon us
and upon tho couutry, shall bo equ il
ly laid upon tha property ot tha
whole country. We will go back
agaiu to the good old proposition that
liberty and equality I10 at the found
ation of oar iusulutiotis.
rrr . -ii 1 . . ,
vve wiiicorau one; agim to tne
proposition that our Govei nmont shall
not be made to build up aristocracies
in it, moneyed or otherwise. Never
made, or intend id to bo eo, that
those who have the most of this
world's goods should bo the very last
togiveaceut of it to relieve the
public treasury. (Applause) What
is the tact upon tins su'jectf Uen-
tlemen.the fact is, and I wish every
man, and every conntrv. to under
stand it, and to appreciate it. The
lact is, that while your nghta havo
been trampled on, yonr liberty 0'
speech taken away, your mon hurr'ed
to banishment and basliles, this party
in power have- been bmliug up a na
tional debt of tho Lord knows how
much. Thoy tull ns now 1'iat it ia
over three thousand millionn; arid
the further fact is, that along with
tho building up of this groat national
debt, which they havo been accus
tomed to cail a "ntitioual blessing,"
they havo aceompaniod it with love
to the moneyed interests of the
country. If you take this debt, thay
say you shall s'.aad independent ol
the States in wiucn you resi-lo. Au
troublesome tax gatii.Tcr shall no,v
present himself at your door, a:i 1 ask
anything from yon. It' ever there
was a successful attempt, so far as
they have goao, to create a moneyed
aristocracy, privileged from all obli
gations of sharing tha public burden,
this is ono. It was hardly worse iu
France, prior to the revolution, I
say to you now, that your duty will
be, as soou as you can get tho ma
chinery of tho Governmout to oper
ato as soou as the family have as
sembled around the family chela, to
see to the administration of that
liberty and equality which lio at tho
foundation of our institutions. If
von want to get all the benefits of
protection in a very largo degree,
yon must contribute, according to
your sabstance, to the public bnrdecs.
That will be one thing to which we
must diroot onr attontion at a very
early day. But, gentlemen, yon are
all perfectly aware of another at
tempt, now being made. The negro
race upon thia continent have been
taken np by those privileged gentle
men, and they are undertaking now
to bring them into perleot and com
plete association ana equality with
men who were pionoorB; who oame
into these woods and levelled these
forreats, and made them blossom as
the rose, inat attempt ia being
made; tha negro ia to be brought
iiiopg yuu, not to be protected lika
jtherpeoplo, but to bo takon into tho
bosom of your lamllies to associate
with yon on terma of perfect equality.'
and finally to walk np (0 the ballot
box and exercise part of that great
loxer with which you are clothed,
of conducting and controlling the
Go eminent of your country. I noed
hardly assure you, geutlomen, that'
to such a state as this, and avorthin
allied to it, the Domocracy can never
asseut. Wo can never assent for
many reasons, one of which ia Buffl
eiei.t, that if wo Bhould, we would
btdray tlio sacred trust reposed in nn
tJ be the guardians of tho poor white
uno ugaimt degradation and die-
amor, w tth n uaktud fueling to
ward tlio negro race not a particle-,
or fat least with as little perhaps aa
that which actuates most of the
uiiHa who nyw claim so much I
'ay v,th no unkind fooling toward
t !.o no-rocs, I munt say to them
M stii'CiJy arfd unequivocally that
"11 who God has tnadd you oce race,
m eiior in every particular to the race
t which wo belong. We can not
tvo up our p'oasuat pLces to you,
aor can wo surrender that Godgivea
nght entrusted to our hands to gov
eni thiMo peasant facos with wisdom.
I do trust ia God that not only tbe
nero raeo here- but elsewhore may
i'ro,:r-'6s a-i j ba elevated as fast as
i'O'-a bio may attain, as far as possi
