Cincinnati, Sept. 28. Hon. Geo. S.
Uoutwcll, secretury of the treasury, ud
drfitsd h very largo republican meeting
at Moxart hall, this evening. Kx-Secrc-tary
Uox was present.
Jlr. Uoutwull, on being introduced,
traced briefly trie connection of tho repub
lican party with tho successful proiccu
tiou of tho war for tho suppression of tho
rebellion; its fitness to take euro of tlio
results of the same, und the unreasonable
nets of expecting from tho democratic
party an approval of tho emancipation
or measure needed to secure to tho
emancipated their rights, or expecting its
concurrence with reference to tlio credit
of the country or tlio puvmcnt of tho debt
incurred in suppressing tho rebellion.
IIu believed if tlio democratic party were
advanced to power, or if tho old school or
new prevailed, tho laws for enforcing the
araendmonts would bo repealed, nnd nil
further clllcient legislation denied. Ho
stated tho democratic policy in these
1st. Itdocs not nccept the constitutional
amendments as right in themtolves al
though, as wo itllirm, they nra tho only
guaranty for the principles on which tho
war was prosecuted, and the only sccuritv

system and to form a tur iff tvstem, and
this without regard to their ellect upon
the business und prosperity of tho country.

own will fur the plighted fuilh of tho
Ho spoke to-night specially on tho third
proposition and on the tweli'th resolution
of tho democratic stuto convention. Ho
then proceeded to Inquiro into the llnBnciul
history of tho country.
Tracing tho reduction of both debt und
interest during Mr. Johnson's ndmistrn
tion, March J, 1609, showed n docreaso

Lurnij,' tuu jirccecuing year ana can
vuss numerous prepositions woro nnniod
for tho payment of tho public debt In
roenbacks, but no satisfactory nlun wus
ovlsod for payment in greenbacks them
selves. They wero all substantial! v rejected by
tho election of Grant, whoio explicit
declarations in his inaugural tcrinintitod
fortho time all propositions fir pavment
of tho debt in anything but coin.
Tho ik-duratiou of tliu presidonl, with
an net of congress tho lirst pasted alter
his inauguration, by which congress and
tho country wero pledged u thn payment
of tho live-twenty bonds in coin, nnd to tho
resumption of specie paviueiit at tho curli
est pructicublo time formed tho basis of
tho financial policy of tho government
froui that day to this, Tliis WIU tho rt..
jection of all avoidance or repudiation of
tho public debt. It was an timipted Aiut
that tho dobt could only bo paid liv taxa
tion, and tho taxes inustcomo froiutlio re
sources of tho pooplo. In carrying out this
policy tho first act of tho treasury de
partment wnn 10 proviuo lor 11 ti

during tho first year increased from cus
toms, 114,000,000, und from Internal sour

In tho samo poriod tho annual ntorest
account was reduocd from 1'JO millions
38,550 dollars to 3,439.385 dolluri und
60 cents, or about one million und a miur
ter pur month. Such reduction, if truutad
us a sinking fund, would, bo claimed, pny
tho dobt, oxclusivo of U. S. notes ,uud
fractional currcnoy. Under tlio wuiio lu-
fluenco the paper currency of tho country
had advances siuco .Marcn i, isuvi, irom
70 cents to about 87 cents. How could
il bo said theso changes inured oxclusivoly
to stockholders for tho Indebtedness of tho
nation hud not been increased bv im
proveumnt in its credit, and the additions
thus mado to tho valuoof tho outstanding
bonds; but it remains precisely tho sumo,
excopt on tho theory maintained by tho
opponents of tho republican policy, that
tho bonds themnelveft aro to bo puld In
greenbacks, and no provision mado for
rodeeniing tho same,
If greonbneks aro to bo paid In coin,
us ono would suppoto they ought to lie
paid, nothing could bo gaitiod by compell
ing tho public creditors to toko green
backs in cxclmngo for their bonds, unless
it was by tho saving of interest, wh.ich
seemed to bo a compensation for the de
struction of the publio credit and dligrnco
of tho couniry. Tho appreciation in tho
vnluo of currency, duo to tho improve
ment of tho publio crcd(t,i for tho benefit
of nil thoso who hold any part of it nt tho
tlmo tho appreciation took place.
Mr. lloutwoll tlicn nllildcd ' to tho suc
cessful ncgotIati3n of two million's of tho
flvn per cent bonds, b,
bv which, nssumint:
timt tney nra to. bo .paid witnin ton years,
though tho probabilities woro they would
not bo paid under" 20 years, tho saving
on this issuo in interest would be $20,000,
000. Tho interest upon tho annual saving
and accumulation at tho expiration of tho
ten yettrs would b& f 0.000.000 morc'trivinir
iin 'tiggrogato saving of $20,000,000 against.
This wus tho lots of ir.torct for thrco

000,000, or l,C2o,000, which he previously
rxpiiiincu us growing out or the Wireo
months notice to tho bond holders of the
intention of tlio government to ro
deem tho bond, if tho now bonds should
run twenty years tho snving
would ho twico these estimates,
when nil details of these
negotiations were complotod way would
bo opened far presenting to capitalists here
und ubroad cilhor parts of tho loan with
n prospect of complete succms. Tlieoo re
mits wero fruits of tho purpose of tho re
publican party to nccept tho dubl as a re
sult of tlio war, and without, inquiring Into
tuu coimucruuou which mo govornmont
received for the bonds to look only to tho
nature of tho obligation which tlio "country
had assured and to faithfully perform it.
If, on tlio part of tho icpublicun party,
thero hnd been uny hesitation if they had
iiMciicu to suggestions tuai Uiu bonus
mlgLt bo piid by thn issuo ot greenbacks,
tho public credit would havo
been still further impaired, and
substitution of bonds at a lower rutu of in
ter es; mado impossible was uotlccuble; that
tho interest paid by our government on
tho public debt was tho standard for inter
nal ralo throughout tho county, and to
somo extent throughout tho world, for thu
bonds of the United States wero negotiable
at mora commercial points outside of this
country than tho bonds of any other gov
ernment. This wns duo to thu implicit
faith of tho people ofther countrys in ut,
Inspired by the declarations of tho repub
lican party,and sustained by evidence giv
en by tho daily reduction of the dobt.
Ho believed that very conideiubio pay
menu should be mado to reduce tho debt
ond reliovo labor from taxation through
many generations, alsi to placo tho nation
in such n position that largo loans might
be obtained nt homo or abroad. Tho pub
lic debt should bo reduced at least $50,000,
000 yearly, and this could bo accomplished
with such n reduction ot tnxes ns would
meet tlio demands of btt'tness and remove
most of tho objectionablu features of tho
system. Amendments to tho internal rev
enue hystein hnd relieved tho peoplo Irom
most, if not nil, of tho really burdensonio
taxei, while from soven subjects now taxed
about one hundred und twontv-flva mil
lions would bo received annually. Tho im
provement hi our credit ImU eliminated
Irom thu differenco between gold and pa
per; all thnt wns duo ton want of faith
in tho financial character of tho country.
Tlio remaining diH'ercnco could bo over
come by nothing until tlio growth of the
country, in its demand for nionoy, should
bo equal to tho present supply, or by re
ducing tlio volume ol currency to an
amount not excecdlng$2, 000,000 per month.
It was true, no doubt, that tho present
vclumo might bo continued with good
honest and general prosperity, and tho dif
ference between tho vuluo of paper nnd
gold annually decreased.
He said that it was tho purpose of tho
republican party, of President Grnnt and
those associated with him, to do what was
practicable to rondcr the paper of the
country ns vuluablo as gold at tho earliest
moment, without injury to tho business
interests, if tho means wero eft to mn.
gross, nnd thero was (ho took it) no dilfer-
onco in tlio republican party; that the
voiumo ol paper rnonoy was, under no cir
cumstances, to bo increased : in this thov
inudo u distinct issuo with tho doinocrntfc
Mr. iioutwoll recapitulated tho financial
results of Grant's administration and in
connection witli tho stutcmont said the
taxes hail been reduced to $80,000,000 an
nually. Ho said ho could reasonably ex
pect that, for tlio reduction of $.30,000,000

Mr. It. then said tho cot.rsoot tho domo
oratic party in rcferenco to tlio dobt was
substantially tho siunu in ellect that their
cotirso was during the war, and that since
the war, thu principal obstitclo to tho im
provement of the tiblic credit had been
thn declared purposo of tho democratic
party to compel li.tlders of 5:20 bonds to
accept greenbacks in thoir placo coupled.
That greenbacks might bo converted at
tho holders will into now a por cent bands.
Ho traced tho unfavorable ellccts of tliu
democratic policy on our credit in Ktirope;
said democratic platform seemed to en
tirely Ignore tho stipulations of tlio aot of
February 25, 1802, providing that dullos
on imports should bo ounculled in coin,
equul to 1 per contum of tho publio dobt
should bo annually set apart as it sinking
fund, and that thu Interest on tho publio
debt should bo puld in coin. Tho demo
crittic proposition to pny tlio lUe-twcnty
bonds in p-reenbaeks would renul ro tin ml.
dltlonul istitu of $1,000,000,000. If tho
