AT THE COURT-HOUSE LAST NIGHT.

(i(t)I) Kl'KEUH WELL DELIVERED.
The Greenbaekers, or tho Nationals, or
the Labor-Reformers, met at the Court
house last night, to listen to Mr. S. I. Davis,
their candidate for congress from this
Mr. Metcalf occupied the chair. He
said '''at a telegram had been received
from Mr. Davis stating that he had been
prostrated and his sickness would prevent
his attending. In his absence, however, it
was stated by Mr. Davis that Mr. Stelle, of
Murphysboro, would fill his place.
Mr. Stelle was introduced and said that
his auditors could not feel more disappointed
than himself in the failuro of Mr. Davis to
appear. That gentleman, he knew, would
regret it more than either his auditors or
hinisell possibly could. If, however, provi
dential circumstances did not interfere,
Mr. I). would address them on tho 5th o.
August. We regret exceedingly that our
space this morning forbids
more than a slight notice of the
gentleman's remarks. Ho reviewed
thefinancial legislation of county, beginning
with '05 jalluded to the prosperity existing at
that time and up to the first contraction act
of '(HI; tracing the effects of this and subse
quent acts of contraction with great clear
ness and force. He then referred to the
strengthening resolution of '0!) the resolu-
dtion eclnring that the fi-SO bonds were pay
able, in coin, and said this change was
wrought in the interest of the moneyed
powers, and at their instance, and against
the protest of such Republicans as Thad
Stevens and Morton. He showed how
by this act the ability of the people to pay
their bonded indebtedness was reduced in
proportion to the ditl'eivnce existing at that
time between coin and greenbacks. He
spoke of tin! patience with which the
peeplo endured the results of this
sort of financial legislation, and brought
up tho thread of his discourse
to the rcnionetizntioii of nilver and to the
attempt to repeal the resumption, act,
Between these mile posts in our llnnnci.il
history since '(15, he pictured in strong words
the oppression, gloom and distress of the
working people; how under a system
of legislation in tho interest of the
rich man industry was gradually
pural.ed and trmps multiplied
and increased until now there were
three millions of them in the land. Ho ar
raigned both political parties for being cor.
nipt and betraying the interests of the peo
pit!, and made some charges against promi
nent Democrats which can hardly bo
home out by thu record. He was particu
larly severe upon Judge Allen, and asserted
dirt that gentleman would not declare in fa
vr of paying the .VJo'h In greenbacks, when
In fact Judge Allen had so declared him-
self in a speech yesterday afternoon accept
ing tho Democratic nomination for con
gress. In the main, however, tho gentle
man in his statement of facts was correct.
To remedy tho evils of which he com
plained lie would repeal tho ''credit' reso
lution of '(J!) and mnko the 5-30'n payable
in legal tenders; hu would mnko legal
tenders receivable for tho payment
of all debts public and private; ho would get
rid of the interest bearing bonded indebted
ness by paying oil the 5-20's in greenbacks,
and paying ofl' those bonds which have
been issued and are redeemable in coin
with silver, under an act giving
unlimited coinage to this metal;
he would also tax legal tenders
so ns to reach the accumulationsof the rich in
this money, and thus force it to seek invest
ment. Altogether his remarks had a good
clfect upon the audience and he closed amid

To gratify this passion she squandered
her husband's earnings, and contracted in

troubles had seriously affected bis mind,
