On Tuesday night Senator Logan ad
drossed n largo audiunco in tho court house
in this city.
He commoncod with a briof history of
the Republican parly and in such a way
as to convoy tho impression that ho had
been ono of its founders.
Ho thon askod : " Has tho Republican
party fulfilled all tho promises it mado to
tho country when it assumed tho control of
the government?" Ho declared it had
dono so, that its action had boon endorsed
by the Domocratio party, and
by tho, wholo American pooplo, and tho
colored men especially wero exhorted to
judge of the future by tho past. He de
nounced tho Liberals, stating that thoy
had acted in bad faith, and by slander had
effected an organization in which the
Democrats gladly unite'd with them.
After viillfyingStho Liboral movement as
a foul conspiracy, he declared tho Repub
lican party hud granted all that the
Liberals had adopted in their platform, ex
cept ono thlng,which was that of amnesty to
about suvonty-flve o( tho rebels who would
not nsk for'morcy from tho government.
Ho was opposed to forgiving them and
novar would for ono consent until those
rebels hud asked pardon for tho past.
11 o thon went on to discourso about tho
"bloody chasm," misquoting and misrep
resenting facts in the most shame-faced
manner. Nono filled that chasm but
Grant men; and endoavored to
prove, without actually using tbe
names of Republicans and Dem
ocrats, by all the language
of which he was master, that Republicans
alono fought the battles of the Union,
and that their bodies on Jono side, and
those of the robels on tbe otbor, filled tho
" bloody chasm." He kept on in this
train for at least ten minutes. Ho then
mado an awkward nttompt to whitewash
the administration, and commenced by
singing the old song that less money had
been abstracted from the Treasury during
tho period of Grant's administration than
any other heretofore, and referred to the
endorsement of tho fact by Mr. Turner
and Gov. Palmer, extending over tho first
yoar nf Grant's presidential term. He
defied any porson to adduce a single fact
of corruption, fraud or bribery on tho
part of tho Prosldent.
Having stumbled over that part of his
subject, he said tho Liberal " conspiracy ''
was organized in Washington, and thut
Grata Brown, was tho chlof conspirator I
Ho alluded to tho sale of arms, and uti
blushingly asserted that it was a straight
forward transaction between tho govern
ment and tho citizens, and that not a cent
was ombozzled. That foreign
4iowors, England, France, and Belgium,
had sold arms to tho rebels and not a
voice was ralsod in denunciation of them by
thoso who are now leadors of tbo Liberal
party. Tho fact was, bo was one of tho
committee who sat on the investigation ot
tho transaction for thlrty-ono days,
and that both Republicans
and Democrats who constituted
that commltteo exonerated tho
government from all charges of fraud, etc.,
and, tho fact of the matter was, that tho
arms sale was a plain open sale. Th
arms were sold to Amorican citizons and
by thorn to the French government, and
that the whole thing was a conspiracy by
Sumner to distract tho German vote from
Sandwiched in betweon tho sale of
arms Job and tho othor swindles, he
mounted tho Murphy job on stilts, und
just thoro a picco of domagoguoism was
beautifully "nipped in tho bud." Tho
outcry against Murphy charging him
with fraud in tho custom homo of New
York was all owing to his being an Irish'
A voice, "An Englishman."
"Well, thon, an Englishman, or whoovor
ho was," said tho speaker, and in a moment
or two dropped Murphy like a hot potatoo.
From him bo traveled ovor tho ground
of investigation, and said that investiga
tion aftor investigation was followed up,
and not a singlo fraud was detected. Ho
stated boldly that thero woro no sustained
charges to bo found anywhere.
Ono amusing pieco of logic was as fol
lows : "You havo in this stato, assessors,
collectors, etc., and have in Cairo a custom
liouse, and yet thero is not a singlocharge of
, corruption or fraud. From this ho actu
ally drew the deduction, and assortod
that it was Hho samo way all ovor; theio
is no corruption anywhere I"
From this point he moved on and tried
to prove that there was more fraud porpe
tratod during tho war of 1812 than tho
losses of money sustainod over tho wholo
period of tbe lato civil war. Ho then
jumped to the Johnson administration
and stated that $60,000 more had 'been
collected under Grant than under tho
Jobnton term, tho reason nf which was
that Grant bad employed faithful and hon.
st collectors I
Ha made a spring then to ths iubeot o
centralization. Ho denied tho charge, and
said what gavo rlso to tbo accusation was,
that in order to support tho .Fifteenth
Amendment appropriate legislation
was mado by which propor
persons wero appointed to watch
tbo polls, so that tbe colored
men could get their rights. He harped
on this string, and topped, off by an allu
sion to tho former and late elections In
North Carolina, claiming a fair Vote and a
republican victory for the last. However
ho distinctly stated that the rebellion
must bo put down, etc.
Ho then pounced upon the Demo
crats declaring that Grant had
come forth victorious, after all
tbo domocratio generals bad,
proved to bo failures, und that Grant
alone was tho conquering horo. That
when Grant came out of the war h was
"hated and -feared by both rnbols and
democrats." Continuing in this strain, ho
wound up on the hero btislnws with tbo
amirablo assertion, vehemently utterod,
that domocrats woro not fit to bo trusted,
not fit for office, not fit to govorn, not fit
for any thing. Voice bettor say thoy
aro not fit to live.
He traveled then all tho way back to
General Washington and began to toll
what Grant would have dono had ho boon

and disgusted with tbe infamous false
