THE DEMONSTRATION IN THE
EVENING MIS. GREELEY'S
To the A oclated Pres-.
Cincinnati. O, Sept. 20. Horace
Orculoy arrived nt tho Llttlo Miami depot
ut twenty minutes after three this after
noon, in chargu of tho reception commit
ten of tliu boards of aldermen and council
men of this city, who met him nt tho vil
lage of Morrow. At the depot ho wan
met by thu entire common council in car
riages. Mr. Greely was placed with
Mayor Davis in tho leading carriage,
drnwn by four hoMct. Currier m band, In
a wagon drawn by elx grayf, led tho pro
ccsalon. Tho imrncnsn crowd at tho de
pot received Mr. Greeley with cheers.
The whole lino of march to tho liiirnot
Houiq win a solid throng of people. Tho
demonstration was hearty and uuthuiius
tic, but did not aesumo a political phu-u.
Hut fow banners wcro hung out on tho
lino of march. His reception was ns tho
guest of thu city nnd as a distinguished
visitor to thu Industrial Exposition, At
tho Iturnct llouo the jam of people was
very great, largo details of police being
necessary to clear tho street. Alter Mr.
Greeley had u llttlo time for rest at the
Jiurnet House, ho was orcorted to tho Ex
position Hall. Tho streets along the lino
of march woro densely thronged 'with peo
ple. The reception at tho Exposition
took place at tho commissioners' room.
Thero were few ladies present. Tho
commissioners, thu mayor, and tho mem
bers of thu city council met to receive
him. Tho reception speech in behalf of
thu Exposition couimietioners whs made
by A. T Gosborn, president, and In be
half of thu city by Mayor Davis. 51 r.
Greeley responded as follows :
"A solitary soldier, equipped and
plumed for war, is not an imposing spec
tacle. Surrounded by agencies and Inci
dents of peace, he seems incongruous and
fantastic a relic of some by gone age; n
representative of a social order, long since
fallen into decay. Rut mail one hundred
thousand such as he into an army, care
fully ranked, thoroughly ditciplincd, and
supplied with all the requisite enginery of
defacement and destruction and its mnjes
tic power, its terrlblo significance, aro
plain even to tbe awed, admiring gaze of
childhood. So thu work of tho lonely pio
neer, buried deep in tho primitive forest,
wherein his rude log cabin has just licuii
thrown up, around which ho U slowly
beating bnck tho empire of shadoand sav
ageism, by dint ot axe and tire, seems
petty and casual when regarded by itself.
If ut could wc, from some commanding
height, some ship of the air, look down at
once upon the whole body of pioneers nt
their daily labor, wo should recognlzo in
their desultory array tho skirmish-lino of
advancing civilization, tho harbinger of
intelligence, comfort, thrift, humanity, and
religion. The wolf, the boar, tbe serpent,
perishing or vanishing ns .!o pioneer host
slowly, irregularly, yet in exorably, moves
on, aro now seen to bo types of "a mo'nl
order which civilized society is destined to
supplant and replace. I tuko this to bo
one chief end of industrial expositions, to
make the workman rcalizo tho essential
value and the true dignity of his work.
Tho infinite division and subdivision of
labor, exacted by modern invention nnd
machinery, are calculated toobscuro these
inspiring considerations. Tho artisan or
artificer dovotes his days to
making, not a wholo watch,' but n
wheel or pinion, at most a spring. Ho
may give his lifo to watchmaking, yet
never see one watch porfected, as the most
skilful and valued worker in n factory
may spend hit years in setting up looms
or compounding dyes, nnd never make
one yard of cloth. Tho exposition is
needed to inspirit each with n thorough,
cheering consciousness of what has been
elVected by tho combined labors nnd ctlorU
of all. I gazed with interest on tho open
ing of tho first world's exposition, in Lon
don, twenty-ono years ago. Apparently,
superficially, tho procession of queen and
princcssos, of dukes and garter knights, in
honor of tho efl'orts and products of smiths
and weavers, smacked of grimaco and af
fectation. How could thoy truly honor
manual industry who had nil their lives
shunned it as a degradation, nnd yet that
pnrado of feudal trappings nnd g'ewgaws
did honor to productive labor, howovor
blindly and evon insincorely. No prop!),
coy of tho auspicious day when eword
shall bo beaten into plowelmres nnd spears
into pruning-honks wns evor clenror than
that procession of royalty nnd aristocracy,
of plenipotentiaries and gold sticks, in
waiting to ushor in tho displny of all ra
tions' products in the domain of nrt nnd In
dustry nt tho crystal pnlnco, in HydoPark,
April 30, 1851. Our work, too generally,
compoU ns to look down, to fix our gaze
on something petty and minute, to shut
out tho viow of stars nnd mountains, and
concentrate our thoughts on bits of metal,
or a low pounds of wool or cotton. Wo
work bowed heads and bent frames. "Wo
need occasionally to straighten up. to ox
pand our chests, with full inspirations of
the free air of Heaven. Wo need to real
ize that work has other nnd noblor ends
than tho highly needful replenishment nf
basket nnd storo; that it best results is
tho skilful, modest, upright, faithful,
lurgo-souled workman. Such It tho les
son which this exhibition is teaching to
tans of thousands. Tho matoriiil recom
pense of labor is indispensable, but tho
honor paid to the auhlovemont of tho
highly desorving workman Is boyond nnd
abovo this ns thu sky is above the earth,
Nor is this all. I sco in ovory great ex
position an incitement to that industrial
co-operation which seems to mo, oven
though dlstunt nnd difficult, nevertheless,
inovftablo. Strikes for higher wages,
strikes for shorter days, lock-outs, trado
unions, all suggest to mo tho radical vice
of our modo of determining tho work
man's compensation. He 6hould mani
fostly bo paid in proportion to tho value
or oxcollonco of bis product. Ho Is oft
ncr paid in proportion to tho timo ho
manages to consume In croatlngor fashion
ing It. Hence, eye-sor vice, dawdling, and
tn production of fiihrin. n
look well but fall to wear or servo well.
j. mi uniiuui, aiways endure. You need
not tell me that any essential chanco if
difficult, for I know already that all genu-
ino reforms aro only nchlnvcJ through
suH'oring and sacrifice, and aftor reponlod
failures. Yon do not frighten by asser
ting that co-oporativo industry involves
complicated, troublesomo account-keeping,
for 1 know that despotism Is tho simplest
form of government, and slnvory requires
less reckoning, nnd bargaining, nnd book
keeping than any system of free labor.
Do not ask me to say just how co-oper-ntion
is to bo reduced to practice, for I
cannot toll. That thero will be experi
ments, mistakes, failures in earlier tcnta
tivo stages of tho reform. I foresee that
rogues nnd chiirlntnns will seize upon
it, In the hope of thereby promoting their
own selfish ends. 1 clearly wo all this,
but I think I discern n brighter vista,
eclipsing away boyond It, now that tho
Republican theory has been fully applied
to tho Government and proved a sucjess.
After making all due allowance for draw
backs, 1 beliuvo Its application to Industry
is only n question of time; that tho work
ors who mako clothes or shoes, or what
ever else, may minister to tho human bus
tunanco and comfort, will learn how to do
this as partners rather than as hirelings,
dividing equitably nnd wholly tho proceeds
instead of accepting n share of them as wa
ges. Years, If not nges, may yet whereby
the co-operation of workurs alone may bo
rendered practible, benlficeiit, and securo:
and yet 1 feci assured that tho day will
comu in which he who wants u houe built
in Cincinnati will apply to a corporation
of practical builders, organized like any
bank or railroad company, bargain with
tho agent of that cmporation as ho
now docs with a master-builder or firm,
and have his work done nt lcn-t as well and
as reasonably us now, while tho stipulated
prico will bo wholly and fairly apportion
ed among those who hnvo
earned it. If you ask
where is the capiUl to be IihiI, I point to
the hundreds of millions now depo-itcd in
saving banks, where-ofi at leist,
two-third belong to work
ing men and women, and say,
"Thero It is." Tho depositors are careful,
saving, thrifty persons, who will not risk
their scanty hoards in rash experiments,
as indeed they should not; but whenever
it shall havn been demonstrated that they
may as safely invest in co-operative under
takings as lend to those by whom tno la
boring class aro now hired nnd paid, there
will bu no lack of capital for such invest
ment, even though the rich should suply
none of It. Ours is pre-eminently an ugn
of invention, of industrial progress. I
can remember a timo when the steamboat
was still a noteltyand n firesid marvel;
when no mile of iron track had yet been
laid on tho surface of our planet; when
American canals were merely contrivan
ces for circumventing cataracts, and of
small ncount anyhow; when no steam pro
pelled vessel had ever crossed a sea J and
when the electric telegraph was as incon
ceiveablu as a broad, firm highway to tho
moon. To mow grass, cut grain, or sow
garmonts by machinery, was then un
lmaiined. Wo exported no grain but that
grown near tho shores of the Atlantic, its
bays and inlets; and our mails
we'ro wholly drawn by horses, nt an
average spcd of less than CO miles per
day. LixiKingback at thoimmensestrides
of "invention nnd machinery, of steam and
electrictity, during tho present ccnturv,
and mainly in my day, who can rationally
doubt that'industrial progress is yet on tho
threshold of its career; that the inventions
of the next half century must far surpass
in scope and utility those of the preced
ing. Happy tho generntion just entering
upon tho stage of being, if its leaders nnd
teachers shall realize thnt tho noblest
achhvemcnt toward which its exertions
should be directed the highest attainment
within its reach is a more generous,
more enlightened, moro courageous, more
devoted generation to follow it, qualified
and In cited to tako tho work wnicn Its
predecessor has laid down, and bear it on
to still greater, more beneficent tri
umphs. This concluded, he went through the
Exposition halls, followed by many curi
ous visitors, though the attundanco at tho
Exposition did not appear to be much in
creased bv tho prospective presonco of tho
famous visitor. .Mr. ureeiey men reiurnea
to the Burnet house, nnd slept for an hour
to gain stronuth for his speech. The dem
ocratic and liberal republican
cxeculivo committees liado made
arrangements by which the
clubs of each ward could bo called out on
a moment's notice, in caso lie should con
sent to speak. This consent was obtained
as early as 4 in the afteanoou, and word
was at onco sont nbroad to thu ward clubs.
By half-past 7 processions wcro formed in
streets in various places, and
diortly after 8, with light
ed torches and transparencies, and
music, moved in tho direction of tho Bur
nett house, taking position in Third streot,
from which balcony it was understood he
would speak. An immenststtirong blocked
up Third and Vino streets simoltancously
with tho arrival of tho ward processions.
Twenty minutes before nlno Mr. Greoley
mado his appearance on the balcony, cor.
ner of Third and Vino, and was intro
duced by Hon. J. L. Kocke. As soon as
tho crowd caught a glimpse of him thore
was great choering. As soon ns this sub
sided, Mr. Greeley spoke ns follows :
Citizens of tho Stntoof Ohio I am hore
u guest ut tho invitation of tho Common
Council of Cincinnati. It is their desire,
as it Is my wish, that I should, whilo their
guest, abstain from any remarks which
might savor of a partisan purpose, and I
hilly designed, had I been lolt ut liberty,
so to speak, that no one of any party could
possibly havo taken exception to it. But
there has been an attack upon ino sinco I
came hore which I will trust to tho hospi
tality and tho generosity of my entertain
ers to permit mo to repel hero and now,
Lust ovoning nt Pittburg in tho courso
of sumo otT-hand remarks ton vast assem
blage liko this, I took pains to explain to
them the circumstances, tho extraordinary,
unprecedented circumstances, under
which I wns impelled in the winter of 1860
and 16(31 to ofl'ur in good faith to submit
tho wholo question of Union or disunion
to tho fair, unconstrained voto of tho
Southern people, after duo deliberation
and discussion. I said then it wns my be
lief, nnd it is still my belief, thnt if tho
puoplo had boon allowed such n froo and
fair opportunity, thoy would havo decided
as you would havo decided; that tho Union
should be maintained, Tliosu romurku
which I mado last evening havo
keen misrepresented, hnvo boon I
think, porvortod into an expression of
present boliofand present conviction thnt
any State has n right to disolvo this union
at its own good pleasure
Fellow. Citizens 1 utterly repudiate
nnd condemn that sontiment. Cheers. I
don't bellovo any State, or that ten States,
even a majority of all the States, has n
right to disolve our Union. Applause.
That Union is founded on the Constitu
tion; ills a chartored Government, not u
mere league, u Goes not commute a con
federacy mearlv. but a nation ; a Hovern-
munt of limited and dtflotd powers, but of

unlimited duration. I believe thnt tho
Union is not only destined to be, but was
Intended to bu perpetual, nnd I believe
that our great civil war if thore ever was
reasonable doubt us to tho naturo of that
Union has settled thnt doubt forever.
Renowod applause That slavery is dead
and that the Union ubides forever.
Such Is tho s'lin and substanco of the
verdict pronounced through tho issues of
our great contest. Thero is no
longer n question, thon, ns to tho perpet
uity of tho Union. Tho applo of
discord, tho only thing that ever Hindu
any American hostilo to his own country
and constitution, has utterly perished.
Thenceforth tho American union abides
forever, grounded in the affections in tho
necessities, in tho fervent dovotion of thu
whole American people. If there ever
shall again arise u question of disunion,
that question will bo present, not for tho
south, not for tho southern section of this
nation. Butnosuch uquntion will or can
arise- As perpetual ns tho hills, us solid
as the everlasting rocks, tlt3 union of these
states Abides and must abide forever. Ono
sentiment, one purposuanlmates tho Ameri
can heart, nnd that is that the union of
tho stales must und shall bo preserved.
Cheers. Now, fellow-citizens, If I may
no ullowed, let mo say a few words more,
generally with regard to your position,
your duties, und your prospects. Cincin
mtimay bo regarded us very nearly in
tiio industrial und commercial centre of
our present population. Whut the future
may bring forth we cannot tell, but to-day
thu city is nearly in thu midd.e of the
great commercial movement of the indus
trial activity of thu American people. Its
hills, smiling in tho summer ubundancu,
looking lovely on each other from tho
north nnd the south Its mighty river,
which leaves your city in its gtntlo cur
rent, is u persuasive to union and recon
ciliation, Wu aro to be evermore ono
people Let us bu n harmonious people,
united in heart and hope, as well as in
geography, in political associations. Lot
us resolve to cultivate thu graces and
the charities of fellow-citizenship. Let ui
resolve that from this city there shall go
forth an iuQuenco to the north and to thu
south, which shall bind thepooplotogether
with the cord of a sweeter and strongor
ntl'ectlon than they havo ever yet known.
Fellow-citizens. 1 rejoico to stand in tho
city which has been honored by tho hold
ing of tbe Cincinnati convention, where
upon went forth thu noblest platform of
principles ever presented to thu American
people. Applause. These principles
commend themselves to my judgment.
Thoy nru dear to my heart. If I could do
anything to give ascendancy, perpetual
and complete, to those principles, I would
gladly do it. If my success or my defeat
could promote their advancement and
commend them to tho hearts of the people,
I should rejoico alike in that success
or that defeat.
I believe they represent tho best
thought, the best purpose tbe best aspira
tions of the American people. As such I
accept them. As such I am proud to be
even in any capacity identified with their
preservation. It was not my expectation
to bu presented as a candidate by that
convention. That honor was conferred
upon me und I thankfully and readily ac
cepted it. And I thank you, my fellow
citizens, for the cordiality, for thu unani
mity, for tho majesty und strength in
which you havo responded to it. As one
of your number, 1 tako tho place in your
ranks which has been assigned to me, and
will endeavor to tear thu banner with
honor, with truth, with justice, wherever
tho future may lead, and wherever the
good providence of God may enable me to
At this period in Mr. Greeley's speech
tho impatient crowd below were noisy;
so much so that It was difficult for those
to hear that were comparatively near
him. After pausing a few moments, he
concluded ns follows: And so, fellow-citizens,
unable to make myself
heard, I will roiievo your attention "und
ask Gov. Randolph to speak to you in my
Governor Randolph was then intro
duced, and delivered a short speech.
Cries wero mado for others, but, no ono
responding, the crowd gradually dis
persed. To-morrow Mr. Groeley will
havo n reception nt tho Burnett hou'o
from 10 a.m. to 12 in., will go on Change,
and at ft o'clock leave for Louisville,
where he will remain till Monday; thenci
to Indianapolis. Ku route here from Col
umbus, he made short speeches at London,
Xenla, Morrow, and Lovcland.
The Pkoi-le's Stamp ok alue. Tho
government indorsement, which legulizes
thu sale of Plantation Bitters, is not the
only stamp a Mixed to that valuable veget
able tonic. It bears, In addition to that
official sanction, tho still more valuable
stump of public approbation. This ines
timable voucher of its rare properties us a
tonic, corrective and alterative, is of much
curlier date thun tho government creden

to repeat, in detail, tho properties of this
