\s was anticipated, Granite II ill was
crowded last night; crowded with an intelli
gent and thinking set of people, gathered to
gether to listen to a calm and candid di*< u*
! *ion of the question of the campaign by one
* eminently fitted for the duty. The audience
j was not wholly of Augusta, hut was compos
e l materially of delegations from Gardiner,
! Ilallowcll and I’ittston. About * o'clock
Hon. Win. 1*. Frye entered the hall, uccuni
| panied by Mr. George K. Weeks and Mr.
! Joseph Miller. They were received hy hcar
| ty hursts of applause, and hy a w elcoming
j tune from the Augusta Baud, which was sta
| tinned near the phitform. ’1’lie music having
subsided, Mr. Miller was presented hy Mr.
Weeks as the President of the evening, w ho
immediately proceeded to introduce in a neat
manner the orator of the occasion. The up.
Iplausc with which lie was greeted having
j subsided. Mr. Frye briefly expressed his
pleasure sit meeting such an audience, and
said that he should speak honestly and truth
fully, and utter nothing to mislead. And he
was as good as his word. For upwards of
two hours he went *>n with his address, hold
ing the closest atteiition of the large audience
hy his candor and ability ; by his clear setting
1 forth of mooted finam ial points: hy his wittv
and brilliant allusions to the pretentions and
1 coquetting* »»f the democratic and gn-cnback
parties, and hy the frequent hursts of elo
quence which so richly abound in this orator.
Mr. Frye first took up and disposed of the
falsehood which the opposition are repeating
about the increase of the commercial interest
and principal of the national debt, lining the
job handsomely and effectively. Then he
spoke of the cluing*; which had i onic fiver the
greenback party since last year—the di>an
jpiaringof fiat money from their platform,
and gold and silver coming in. Also the ac
tum id* the dimiocratii* convention at Bangor,
in adopting a platform similar to that «d* tin*
greenback platform, and the marriage of the
two parties. The hand of democracy wa*
under tin- whole. They first gobbled up the
Port land convention, and then shapid their
own to correspond. Tho whole was a demo
cratic trick.
.Next lie answered the argument ot the
greenbaekers that the government might i*
Mie eurreney and save interest, showing (1)
that more would he lost by Tinted States
notes escaping taxation than would hi* saved
in interest; {'J the eurreney should not he
under the control of politicians; cl) the gov
ernment has no constitutional authority to is
-He eurreney in time ot peace. The justifi
cation of the issuing of greenhark- hv the
government was the necessity forced upon it
hv tilt* war. It was done to save the life of
the nation. Hut he tore the war closed the
republican party fixed the limit to w hich the
nation should go, and in spite of all tempta
tion k* pt rigidly to it. This was one of the
bc't at t- of the republican party.
Mr. Frye then gave an elaborate and yet
| 'implc and most comincing explanation «f
the national banking system. so that anybody
could understand it. 1 hi** was followed by
la comparison between the condition of the
j country at the time the republicans took the
control of the government and w hat it i-* now.
In reconstructing the government Mr.
Frye said we had been too easy. < lur achieve
ment in reducing tin* debt and the annual in
j terest burden was marvelous. No other n»
! tion could boa't of anything like it. It was
the greatest financial feat in history.
'The increase of our exports was mentioned,
also the wonderful progress of our country
as shown hv the increase of the Host Office
business.
lie said we are only fighting in the cam
paign this year f »r position in the campaign
ot next year, when there will be but two par
lies—democratic and republican—and the
main isMic will he the old question of State
1 Rights.
Mr. Frye then spoke ot the proceedings in
Congress since the democrats gained control
of the House, and particularly of the revolu
tionary measures which the Southern Briga
diers had attempted to push through Con
gress on appropriation bills, as in the extra
session.
His peroration was a most eloquent and
powerful appeal t«» bis audience tor support
j of the republican cause. His whole speech
| was a splendid and telling »tlort. and fully
met the high expectation of our citizens.
