Tno notion of tho convention at 3Iadi-

and to no ono morothan mysolf. Being at

was such, an unanimous, warm and earnest
appeal to mo to accept that I could not do
otherwise. It was the old men who ap
pealed to me In the namo or tlio young no

was a mere matter of form. Never were

say that, and, Judging from its action, it
means anything but that. Its spirit, una
nimity, enthusiasm, mean earnest work;,

and clearly vindicates tho couno of its
present ablo governor, 11. Oratz Drown,
and of that senator, formerly a resident of
our stato, who, I think, as an orator, has
few equals, and as a writer no superior in
America Carl Schurz. I refer to tholr
courso in urging universal amnesty as a
basis of peace. Missouri has demonstrated
that love is stronger than hate ; that deeds
of charity and forgiveness can win what
acta of oppression and humiliation can
never wring from tho hearts of bravo mon,
lovaltv and affection.
Head "it, follow-citizcni, nnd nsk your
neighbors to road it. Manhood, renowed
loyalty, and affection breath inovcry word.
It reaches ovory heart.

THE TINANCIAL SITUATION.
It will bo my purposo also during the
canvass to discuss tho great questions of
taxation, finance, rovonuo and tnrifl re
form, and tho best manner of simplifying
and economizing in tho collection of taxes
and revenuo; and to relieve, and equalize,
as far as possible, tho heavy burdens, nnd
to apportion them In somo proportion, to
tho ability to bear them.
You all remombor(lhat Gen. Washburn
told tho pcoplo of Kacine, In our joint dis
cussion hero in 1808, that tho pcoplo wee
never so prosperous as slnco tho close, of
tho war. Speaker Hlaino has also indulged
in the samo strain quite recently. Hut, it.
must bo borno in mind, that within the
past few years Mr. Hlaine has becomo a
very rich man, a millionaire, it Is said;
and how can ho sympathize with or know
tho truo condition of the common pcoplo,
or tho burdens thoy now bear? Wo all
know that wniio tno tortunato low may
have becomo suddenly rich and aro above
all pecuniary troubles, tho great mass of
the people, professional mon, small mer
chants, traders, mechanics, farmors and la
borers never felt the burden of taxation
and tho struggle for a respectable and hon
ast livlihood more than now. To'show

For tho present, I will concludo what I
havo to say in answer to Speaker Hlaino
cn this subject by reading to you tho most
eloquent nnd truthful account of our pres
ent condition, in tho language of Kidnoy
Smith, written more, than forty years ago.
I once read this on tho floor of tho senate.
It describe our condition now so perfect
ly, it seemed so liko prophesy, that sena
tors 'spransr to their feet to innuiro the
name of thu author. I commend it for its
truth, and, as u specimen of writing of un
equaled simplicity and force, I commend
it to every young man. x,et mm read it
cam anu Ream, .et him learn it by
heart, and when Gen. Washburn or.Speak-
or Hlaino shall toll you how rich you art.'
nd how light all your burdens are, repeat
it to them:
''Taxes upon every article which enters
si to tho mouth, or covers tho back, or is
luced under loot: taxes unon overvihint;
which it is pleasant to see, henr, fcc),smo)l,
or taslo; takes upon warmtn, ngni ana

Ily tho by, this Cfclnrso qupjtiun Is prov
ing to the Republican party In California
ilmost as serious a nuisance as tho negro
question has been nnd ttill is to tho Demo
cracy. When tho Republicans repudiated
tho old doctrino or "tho rights of man"
and wont over and stolo tho nntl-Chlnoso
plank out of the democratic platform and
put to sea on that, thoy lost tho sympathy
of men of liberal ideas nnd enlarged
vlowi, here and olsowliero. Hut that was
not tlio worst of it. Soveral ultra repub
licans havo sailed in to attack tho position
of tho party on account of It. Geo. 0.
Oorham, Secretary of tho United States
Senate, who, four years slnco, as Republi
can candldato for Governor of California,
led tlio party into slaughter, defeat, and
Utter hopeless rout, smarting undor his
still unhcaded sore.'', has como back here
to stump tho State for thu prcsont ticket.
Last Thursday night ho addressed a largo
meeting at Piatt's Hall, nnd took occasion
to say tiat tho letter which he wroto on
tho Chinese question nt that time an
open, manly, nnd crediltiblo letter it wn,
too expressed his sentiments on tho Chl
neso question, nnd, so far ns
ho ns an Individual Mas
eoncorncd, they wcro still his sentiments,
though not thoso at prcsont of the
Republican party of California. Tho fact
that ho was always tho spoulal advocato
cftho Central Pacific Hallway subsidy
schomcs, and was nut up for tho Governor
hi)t and run for that offico by that corpo
ration, contributed largely to his defeat
at that time. Ho look occasion to say
that tho Honublican party had " left him
out in thecold ' by tho Democratic war cry
of " no subsidies, " nnd wont on to dofend
tbo action oi Congress la tho matter of
railroad land grants, maintaining that all
tho rights of settlers had been scrupulous
ly guarded, and the grants would redound
mmcnsciy to tho boncllt of the whole
country. 1 ho speech fell liko a bombshell
n tho Jtcpublican camp, nnd the demand
that he should bo "choked otf'cainoup
to the Stato Republican Central Commit
tee from all sides. Unfortunately Gor-
ham is a prominent candidato for tho
United States Scnatorship for California,
has named, or is reputed to havo named.
eleven Representatives to tho Stato Legis
lature irom ban r rancisco, and abovo all,
subscribed nnd paid down
$2,000 in hard coin, toward tho
expenses of this campaign, and ho won't
bo chockod off. Ho proposes to L'o rlcht
on and canvas tho State. To this trouble
is added tho grief of tho faithful at tho er
ratic Frank rixiov. who has been defeat
ed for about every ofllco within tho gift of
the pcoplo of California, and was ono of
the founders of tho Republican party on
the Pacific Slope. Pixlev comes back
from Europe refreshed, reiuvenatcd. and
rantankcrous, and. nflcr delivering n lec
ture at Piatt's Hail last Saturday r.igbt
for the benefit of n noblo public charity,
in which ho dclondcd tho Paris Communo
and tho International Workingmen's So
ciety, now threatens to como out and blow
tho Hetiuhlicnn nnrtv slcv.hieli far lta"niw
departuro" un the Chinese question, and
its recreancy to pnncipio in tlio baso con
test for power. Then, too, there isnmovc
mont not very formidable, it is true, but
still a movement to bring out n straight-
out Jtcpublican municipal nnd judicial
ticket for San Francisco, and it appears
certain that ono will be put in tho fluid.
Tho Democracy aro supposed to havo
nearly an even chnnco or beating tho Tax
Paver's ticket in San Francisco if on
straight-out Republican ticket is run, but
