The Speech of Cam. Sciiuiiz, at
Nashville, has created quite a commo
tion in tho radical party, and tho sen

whole line as a recreant to his political
principles. An Jionest politician can
a . louj. remain in the radical party.
" I Always Liste.v to Gov. Ogles

in his speech to tho republican state
convention the other day, "for when ho

Oglesby's strong point. He cau talk,
and sweat, and paugh, smell to ! with
great ability. He reeks to heaven
when he orates.
time has come, " savs the
Chicago Tribune, " when the republi-
' can party must exhibit faith in the
' wi-dom and justice of their own
' acts. " Ab well ask the plunderer, or
murUercr, ur miscellaneous rascal to be
lieve in the justice of his acts. Even
the hypocritical pretence on the part
of republicans of belief in the goodness
of their inexcusable sinfulness has
become tiresome to tho deceut element
of the party, who are commencinK to
slowly withdrawn the covering from tho

Ouit Munn, who was president of tho
lato radical stato .convention, is an ora
tor of a peculiar kind. Lacking a
well-filled store houso of ideas, ho ekes
out tho deficiency by a plentiful abund-
anco of words, and with "woven paces, "
flying arms and piercing voico as
saults, the attention of his audiences,
and at tho conclusion of his harangues
leaves them impressed with the belief
that they havo been listening J.o sound
and witnessing fury that signifies noth
ing. On taking tho chair in the radical
convention Ihe'olEer day, Major Munn
made one of his characteristic speeches
and won considerable applause. In
therCQurse of his harranguo he declared
that the"go-rato republican party
' could ncver-r-r die or bo crushed out.
' The effort to crush it would bo like an

' party this fall, and tan them next

Rocky mountains would, Major Munn
says, blister tho hand that made tho at
tempt; and the logical conclusion must
he,.that,.tiiiico tho radical party is as
difficult to crush, as tho Bocky. moun
tains, the hand that attempted to crush
that party 'would bo also blistered.

The Pkoiua DkmoOiiat says that
tho nomination of Gen. Boveridgo by
the republican stato convention for
congress from the state at large was
signal victory of Springfield over Pco
ria ou tho capitol removal question
"Now," adds the Democrat, " if tho
' way sensibly aud nominate somo such
1 man as Tom Turner, Tom Hoync, or
' General Cameron, who were
'fast friends of Peoria, they will
' carry tho military track (by ati over

has taught itself to believe that all
Ucstions, moral, social, religious and
political, have been merged in tho
question of tho removal of tho state
capitol from Springfield to Peoria.
Any man who has lived at Springfield,
or ucen so rccticss ot the truth as to
praise that city, is in tho eyes of the
Democrat unworthy )f countenanco

In somo respects Mr. Millor Is tho most
original poet tho United Statos has pro

ho does not depend upon tho introduction
of vulgar bits of realism that havo mado
tho roputatlon of ono or two vorslflors who
aroontlrolydostltulo of his depth nnd
strength of naturo. In "Kit Carson's
Ride," he appears In an exceptional llcht.
That poem Is not typical of his power.
Itii a moro caprlco. a flash In tho pan. tho
fitful representation of ono mood of his
mind, and that notaYoryporraanontmood.
Tho poem ontltlod "With Walker In Nic

production, illustrating, as it docs, tho no
bleness, tho swoctnesj, tho passionato lovo
of women and of nature which aro charac

genuous adoration that an ardent boy fools
lor tho man whom hoorocts into a hero.
For thoso reasons wo Incllno to consider
tho ptoin wo havo thus especially men
tioned, as tho purest and strongest In tho
book. It Is disordered with no dark and
illegitimate passion, as moro than ono of
the other poems aro. Tho broath that
blows, now vigorously, now tendorly
through it, is always sweet, frogrant and
healthy. The descriptions of naturo are
maoo with a loving, lingering, warm and
conscientious nana, ximt this is so, will,
wo think, bo dlscomed in tho appended
How wound wo through tho solid wood,
With all its broad boughs hung in green,
wuu mencn-mosses trail a boiwcen
How waked tho spotted beasts of prey,
Deep sleeping from tho faco of dav,
And dash'd them llko a troubled llood
Down somo defllo and denser wood I
And snakes, long, litho nnd bountiful
As green and graceful-bough'd bamboo,
Did twist And twine thorn through nnd
Tho boughs that hung red-fruited full.
One, monstcr-sized, nbovo me hung,
Closo oved mo with Its britrht nlnlV eves.
Tlion raised his folds, and swny'd nnd
Then oped his wi3o mouth with surprise
Ho writhed and curved, nnd raised nnd
His folds llko liftings of tho tide,
And sank so low I touched his sido.
As I rodo by, with my broad sword.
Tho trees shook hands high ovorhcad,
And bow'd and intertwined across
Tho narrow way, whilo leaves and moss
And luscious fruit, gold-huod and red,
Through nil tho canopy of green,
Let not ono sunshaft shoot between.
Birds hung and swung, green robed nnd
Or droop'd in curved lines dreamily,
Rtinbows roverscd, from treo to treoj
Or sang low-banging overhead
Sang low, as if they sang and slopt,
Sang faint, llko somo far waterfall,
And took no noto of us at all.
Though nuts that In tho way woro spread,
Hid crush and crucklo as wo slept.
Wild lilies, tall as maidens are,
As sweet of breath, us pearly fair,
As fair us faith, ns puro us truth,
Full thick boioro our every tread,
As in asacrillco to ruth,
And nil tho air with perfumo flll'd

Mr. Miller nlso possesses tho power of
making a plcturo stand out with wondor
ful distinctness. As ovidence, road tho
subjolnod description of ono of his Nlca
raugan episodes :
Far in tho wildest qulnlno wood
Wo found a city old so old
Its vory walls woro turn'd to mould,
And statoly trcos upon them stood.
No history has niontlon'd it,
No map has givon it a placo ;
Tho last dim traco of trlbo and race
The world's forgctfulncss is tit.
It held one structuro grand and moss'd,
Mighty ns nny castlo sung,
And old whon oldest Ind was young,
With threshold Christian nover cross'd;
A temple bulldcd to tho sun,
Along whoso sombro altar-stono
Brown bleeding virgins had been itrown
Llko loaves, whon leaves aro crisp and dun,
In ages cro tho Sphinx was born,
Or Babylon had birth or morn.
My chief led up tho marblo stop
Ho over led, broad blado in hand
When down tho stones, with doublo hand
Clutch'd to his blade, a savage leapt,
Hot bont to bartor lifo for llfo.
Tho chieftain drovo his bowlo knifo
Full through his thick and broad breast
bone, And broko tho point against the stono,
Tho dark stono of tho tomplo wall.
I saw him looso his hold and fall
Full length with head hung down tho step ;
i law run uown a ruuuy uoou
Of rushing pulsing human blood.
Then from tho crowd a womon cropt

So picture-like, with sandall'd feet
And long gray dismal grass-wovo gowns,
So Hko tho pictures ot old time,
And stood all still and dark of frowns,
At blood upon tho stono and street,

And boldly spoko somo bitter word ;
Hut thoy wcro stubborn still, and stood
Dark frownlnc as a winter wood.
And mutt'rlng something of tho crime
Of blood upon tho tomplo stono,
As if tho ilrst that it had known.
Wo turned toward tho massive door
With clash of stool at heel, and with
