with all the suavity of a rtmarkably

it. The fact is, a Democratic welcome
is always hearty, and he must bo an in

revenue for tho Second district of Ohio; for
receiving presents and bribos ami for of
fering a bribo to his aiiiitant asscijor to
induce him to njlow Gaddia to commit
frauds in office 'ahinqton DUpateh.
In the days when we knew Gaddis,
he was a Miining light of Radicalism;
a church member, powerful in prayer,
and a leading tcmpcranco reformer in
the Buckeye Stato. His rpecial forto
was to pioneer temperance societies
through their early stages;. in this
work ho was generally aseistcd by zeal
ous female reformers, chief among !
whom were several old maids and
strong minded grass widows. Among
tho women, brother Gaddis was looked
upon as a little lower than an angel in
his way; and great has been his fall,
when wo consider that ho has been in
dicted for neglect to assess tax upon
certain, distilled spirits and for omit
ting to cause the seizure of thirty thou
saad gallons of spirits unlawfully
moved to a placo other, than a bonded
warehouso, and that he received a five
thousand dollars' bribe for the above of
fense. The Rev. Gaddis was formerly
connected with the People's Church in
Cincinnati, and has lately theen engaged
in tho work of graeo in a Brooklyn
church, 1. Y. Five thousand dollars
is some money, and wq don't wonder
that the Gaddis succumbed, but wo are

THE KU-KLUX BILL.
A Washington dispatch informs us
that tho Administration is taking steps
for tho immediate enforcement of the
Ku-Klux law, by giving instructions to
tho United States Marshals to employ
tho proper number of deputies and pro
ceed to tho scene of the disturbances
and enter upon the details of the en
forcement of tho act in North Carolina.
We shall lose much of tho confidence
wo have in the intelligence and patriot
ism of the American people if this high
ha'ndcd measure this outrage upon
irccdom of person, the eacrcdnctn of
proj crty and the rights of the State,
docs not bring iU authors the. men
who aro now putting in motion its ma
chinery of oppression into public dis
grace, and thus rebuke them
in a manner that will teach allfficn who
may have an impulw to walk in their
footstep that they must not venture
along a path so destructive of the
hopes and expectations of all politi
cians who expect to riso to power, and
iufluence by tho fivor df tho public.
Gen. Sherman declared very recent
ly in a speech at New Orleans that the
Ku-Klux order was the mythical off
spring of the diseased brain of unscru
pulous politicians, and. although the
General has littlo Tespcct for, any
body's rights but his own and the high
privileges. of the army, his opinion on
tho subject Is entitled to respect. Ho
is undoubtedly right in this assertion.
There is not an organized body of
Southern white men known as tho Ku
Klux Klan ; and tho .cry about the
mythical order is nothing but the shib
boleth of tho political partisans who
hgpe -by( its use to arouse the
poopla ofJtho North into frenzy and
find in it an cxcuio for using tho, bayo

to retain possession of the flesh pots of

vicinity of the Southern Hotel to do honor
to Sonator Carl Schurz, who, by tho
straightforward course pursued by him

Senator Schurz on tbo part of-tho Demo

of tho remarks of Col. Grosvener,
Sonator Schurz addressed tho mooting In'a
spocch of somo length, tho conclusion of
which wo publish. '
It contains all that Is important in tho
speech, and as u declaration of political
principles from ono of tho foremost Ite
publicrfh Sonator of the United State, Is
Important and significant:
Let mo stato them to you: In the first
placo, I bavo alway been an. nntl-slavcry
raw believing as I do and did, and always
win, that true JtepUblican covcmniuiittnu
stand only on tho basis of tho equal right
of men, and that tho government can have
no security si long as thero is any cios
of society upon whom duties aro imposed
witnout tho recognition of corresponding
This great principle has been Incorpo
rated In tho fundamental law of the repub
lic, and we behold now in tho constitution
of the United States as It if, tho great char
ter of ooual rights, II y the amendments
that tnado it so, I mean to stand with un
flnchlnc firmness to tho last, not only be
cause thev aro there in point of fact, but
because, if they woro not, thoy ought to be.
They form tho vary basis of tho new
order of society which issued from our
creat revolution : thev embody tho only
posslblo scntlomerft'of our past conflict", so
much tho only posslblo settlement that tho
noopo would always novo to return to it,
if thoy tried any other. And it is my
firm conviction that thlri republics will
have no ondur'mr rcnoso until that settle
ment Is tiniv.nally accepted and carried
into cueci, not gruugingiy anu wiui rnnnini
reservation looking to a chitnco to over
throw it, but fairly fully and in good faith
as a finality. To this end my earnest of
forts will always bo devoted, and I shall
hold it to bo my duty to oppose any move
ment or combination working in tho op
posite direction, as highly dangerous to
tho poaeo of tho country. Ilcncwcd
Upon tho samo ground I am In fmr of
cetiernl amnesty. fCheers.1 As I have
wotked for tho cnual rlehis of men, be
thovwhilo or black, so I stand up for
tho equal rights of men, bo thoy Democrats
or Itenublicans. rCheers.l It I tima
that thoio political disabilities should dis
appear which wero imposed upon certain
classes of thoso connected wi'.li tho rebel
lionpolitical disabilities instead of pro
jecting tho rights ana security oi anybody,
servo only to nourish n spirit of ul!uu
discontent and stand tn llio way oi an ef
fort at tbi restoration of fraternal feeling.
Hut not only with regard to tho now
amendment do I mean to uphold the con
stitution. I consider it ono of tbo most
pressing needs of our day that wo should
return to tne sound practico oi constitu
tional Government. Time of war ond
5 mat national peril haro naturally engcu
ored a looseness of constitutional notions
which, in time of peace, cannot bo per
mitted to co farther without serious dan
ger to the integrity of our republican in
stitutions. In the constitutional limitation of polit
ical powers, wo find, as our ancestors al
ways have found, the main safeguards of
popular liberty. And when thoso consti
tutional limitations are utsrcgarucu, even
for tho protection of the rlcbts of some,
thow riisnts win bo put in jeopardy nyino
uanger orougm upon iiiu ngnu 01 an.
Too safeguards ot our common ricuts anu

of tho war-making power by tbo oxecutlvo
in tbo San Domingo case, an attempt not
only uttorly with outparallcl in tho history
of this country, but without tho shadow Of
a constitutional argument to palllato H.
Startling a that attempt was, moro start
ling is It mat sucn an act should.so larnavo
parcel witnout n declaration of sentiment
in Congress, preventing it from becoming
n most dungorous precedent in our his
tory. But worao still is it, than such an
act can bo committed', without at least
arousing public opinion to a commanding
demonstration oi uisapprovai.
It Is indeed timo that tbo American
people should open their oye to tho dan
gerous character of this tendency, and
that neither a great namo nor an object
appealing to our sympathies should bo
permitted to disguise it.
A for me, I havo ecn tho working of
irresponsible power and perfonal govern
ment in oinor countries, and I may insure

last gasp against its introduction here.
I shall as horotoforo, give my earnest
