Sept. 7 1# First Paqe to-Pay—More About the Chase Movement; Letter from Virginia; Pol itics in the Country, Varieties. Fourth Page—The Canopy of Flowers; Ear ly Fall Fashions; A Great Aerolite. A Volunteer—Thanks to Illinois! She has given us for this campaign Storrs, Inger soll, Farnsworth and Logan. The glorious re sult next Monday, which we now confidently predict, will he due in no small degree to them, and we would by no means be understood as underrating the services of gentlemen from other States in saying so. But it is not of them that we would now speak, but of a gal lant volunteer from the same State who, hap pening to observe a political struggle going on here, offered his services and heloped along the good cause. Perkins Bass, Esq., an able and wealthy Chicago lawyer, came to Maiue a few weeks ago to spend a short vacation. The campaign had commenced and he was unable to refrain from participating in it. He there fore promptly offered his assistance to the po litical committees, assuring them that he would accept no compensation whatever for his work. I So he took off his coat, figuratively speaking, and lor two weeks he spoke every day. Tire effect of his speaking was excellent. He gave the people facts, figures and solid arguments, leaving the lighter business to his associates. When at length professional engagements call ed him back to Chicago he refused to allow the payment of even the travelling expenses of his tour. All the compensation that it was possible to force upon him was the hearty thanks of all who had listened to him as well as the gentlemen under whose direction he was employed. He said that he regarded the contest here as not only in behalf of the party in Maine, hut that of Illinois also, and that the other States owe something to the State that first holds its election. Rebels Dictating Term».-The Raeerrans I'W 1 orre«pondeace. RILE OR RUIN THE DBMOCCEAflC WATCHWORD. 11 auythiug is needed to confirm the impres sion that the Southern leaders propose to overthrow the loyal governments of the Southern States by revolutionary violence in case the Democratic Presidential ticket is suc cessful, the correspondence between Gen. Rose craus aud the Rebel leaders, published in our dispatches Saturday morning, would turuisli it. The extraordinary impudence of the docu ment signed by Lee aud his associates must prove more exasperating to the Northern peo ple than even the oj euly rebellious utterances of Toombs, Gobi , Forrest. Semmes, Pike, Wise, Vance and Hill. The men last mentioned are the Hotspurs of the South and make no claim to prudeuce, discretion or deceucy,but Lee aud Alexander H. Stephens are supposed to represent the statesmanship, the prudence and candor of that section of the country. Yet Lee aud Stephens in their letter to Rosecraus only disguise the frankly treasonable expres sions of the more unguarded aud undiplomatic Southerners in euphuistic phrases. Too much attention cannot be given to this remarkable document. It ought to he placed in the baud* of every voter in the Northern States for the sake of making sure of such an overwhelmning defeat to the Democracy at the coming election as should bury it torever out of sight as a relic of barbarism aud a de funct abomination. In the first place, Robert E. Lee, Alexander H. Stephens & Co., Rebels whose lives and es tates are forfeit to a long suffering and com passionate government, are graciously pleased to acknowledge that slavery and secession are dead. So far, so good, reserving the right to question the sincerity and good faith eveu on those poiuU* of men who once before took a solemn oath to support the constitution of the United States, and afterwards engaged in re bellion against it. Iu the seooi d place these gentleman combat the prevalent impression that the oUl slave holders are hostile to the negroes and would willingly oppress them. They declare that if the Slate governments were once more restor ed to Rebel hands tile negro would receive the kindest aud most considerate attention. “Sell in'erost,” they say,” “even if there were no higher motive, would prompt the whites of the South to extend to the negroes care and pro tection.” Now the fact is these specious rascals have had two excellent opportunities “to extend care aud protection to the negroes,” when “ the promptings of self-interest” were precisely the same as now. The first time “the promptings of self interest” led them to reduce the the negroes to slavery, buy them, scourge them, kill them, separate children from their moth ers and make concubines ot the females of the race. The second opporr unity was after the war, when they were allowed to reconstruct on the Johnson plan. Then “the promptings of sell interest” constrained them to enact va grant and apprentice laws which virtually re establish slavery. The humane aud generous spirit of the chivalry was also manifest in most unright! ous discriminations against the blacks in the State criminal codes. The provisions for the punishment of crime in the old slavo codes were formally extended to freedmen, so jhat negroes suffered more severe penalties for the commission of my offence than the whites. We published a few days ago some extracts from thcMississippi constitution framed under the Johnson government, it being a represen tative ot all the others. We reprint a tew ex tracts. Article 58, Sec. 21, Revised code of Missis sippi, makes it punishable with death for a ne gro to murder, commit rape, burn houses, commit robbery, or attempt to commit such crimes. White persons did not suffer the death peualty for the commission of most ot these crimes, aud never for an attempt to commit them. Article 45 provides that a slave shall receive twenty lashes, if he be found awav from the place ot his employment, without a pass. Re enacted for the freedmen. Art. 4fi awards thirty-nine lashes to the slave for buying or selling without written permission. Re-enacted for the freedmen. Art. 47 allows civil officers aud others to ap propriate to their own use, auy article a slave may be seeking to sell. Re enacted for the freedmen. ' Art. 67 makes it punishable for negroes to assemble, or hold schools. Re-enacted for- the freedmen. Art. 63. Beth ears are to be cut off for heal ing false wituess. Re-enacted for the freedmen. White ears are secure. So much for the condition of the negro left to the tender mercy of the old slavo master. But the consummate flower ot alt we have yet seen of Rebel arrogance and impudence is the following extract from Lee’s letter:| They, (the Rebels) ask a restoration of their rights under the Constitution; they desire re lief from oppressive misrule; above all they would appeal to their countrymen for the re esjahlishment-in the Southern States of that which has justly been regarded as the birth right of every American the right of self-gov ernment; ESTABLISHTHOSE ON A FIRM BASIS, aud we can safely promise on behalf of the Southern people that they will faithful ly obey the Constitution and laws of the Uni ted S'tates, treat the negro with kindness aud humanity, and fulfil every duly incumbent on peaceful citizens, loyal to the Constitution of their country. Here we have Messrs. Lee and Beauregard, whose garments are red with the blood of murdered patriots, who only live by the suffer ance ot a merciful people, demanding as a CONDITION OF PEACEFUL SUBMISSION TO THE GOVERNMENT AND LAWS A RESTORATION OF REBELS TO SUPREME POWER AND THE EX CLUSION OF THE LOTAL MEN FROM ANY PAR TICIPATION in the government. They only promise submission upon a CONDITION, and that a WICKED and IMPOSSIBLE one. It is a condition that would exclude nearly two thirds of the voters of South Carolina from the ballot-bux and give the residue as many Representatives as Maine, making the vote of one South Carolina Rebel equal to the votes of two Union men in Maine. It is a condition that would place the South in the best possible condition to demand the endorsement of its pet scheme the payment of the Rebel debt. It is a condition the acceptance of which would give Wise, Vance, Toombs, Cobb and all the fire-eaters who are not committed even to the document signed by Lee, au opportuni ty to try again to make secession, which they say is not dead, a success. Read carefully again this Sulphur Springs document, drawn out by the intrigues of a man inspired by personal hostility to Grant. That document says, “we the Rebels do not and will not accept your terms, but you must accept ours ’’ It says, “give into our hands these loyal freedmen and we will be good citi zens, but you must abandon your scheme of reconstruction and accept ours or we WILL NOT BE ANSWERABLE EOli THE PRESER VATION OF PEACE.” This is a reversal of the decision at Appo mattox. It is a triumph of the Rebellion. It is Lee, Beauregard and Hampton triumphant over Grant, Sherman, Sheridan and Thomas, who with the loyal people of the North, have another scheme of reconstruction. Another Ku-Klux Outrage. At Maryland Ridge, Wells, on Thursday evening, while J. W. Bear and M. L. Steveus were speaking, sonic Democratic scoundrels not content with disturbing the meeting with yells and howling, cut the leg ol their horse with a jack-knife and also cut the harness — Outrages of a similar character are becoming almost as frequent iu Maine as in Texas. The Klaus have attacked Republican processions in Saco, Portland, Lewiston aud Augusta. Forrest, the Grand Commander of the Ku Klux, recently declared that the organization cumbers 550,000 men in the whole country. He also said that it was their purpose to wage a war of extermination upon the Radicals, iu case they undertook to resist Blair’s revolu tion. It is evident that Maine’s quota in this organisation is lull, and that our local Ku Klux are eager to go to work at once aud draw the first blood. Wnlcr Power of TOaine. James B Francis. Ksq., mperiutendant of the water power at Lowell, the first living au thority in all matters pertaining to economi cal hydraulics, in a letter to the Supt. of Hy drographic Publication, says, “The develop ments of your report undoubtedly sustain your original estimate that a million horse-powers would be found available in the water-power of Maine.” This, it will he observed, is equal to sixty-million spindles. Lowell nowoperatis about 448,000 spindles. “Send One Dollar.” A clergyman residing near Buxton Centre makes the statement that Charles A. Shaw, Democratic candidate for Congress, printed an advertisement saying that upon receipt of $1 he would send the greatest curiosity of the age. The clergyman sent the dollar and re ceived in return an almanac worth perhaps Jive cents. Fiction.—Five Inspectors at $1,400 per year, 4 years, $31,200.—Argus, Sept 5. Fact.—Five Inspectors at $1,400,4 years, $29 - 200. Only $2000 out of the way. Very fair in the Argus, when it is considered that it is lull ol Jktion daily. * Secretary Welles and the Bodu ti ger Candidate in Council. They Doom 100 Workmen to Lose of Bmph yment. They discharge 7 (’rippled Soldiers. A i'nie 'i'laal Would Justify l-'xplciiv< «. Kciucmber Kittery I Ay, Remember Kittery! The political an nals of the country do not afford another so outrageous instance of proscription on political grounds as followed the visit of Secretary Welles to the Navy Yard. Charles A. Shaw and the York County Dem ocratic Committee had an interview with the Secretary. Within ten days one hundred MEN WERE DISCHARGED FROM THE NAVY Yard. - Every man was a Republican. SEVEN WERE SOLDIERS WHO HAD LOST EITHER AN ARM OR A LEG. All were assured that they could remain if they would vote to surrender to Davis aud Lee. The discharge of these seven men leaves only three crippled soldiers employed in the Navy Yard. There is no mistake about tbe facts. We have published the names and residences of the soldiers, Remember Kittery! If Jeff Davis had been President and Scmtnes lus Secretary of War, the case could not have been made stronger. Tiiis last charlatan trick of the Rodiigger will cost him hundreds of votes. Don’t let the peo ple forget it. Tell them of it every day. It is an outrage that will bury the Democratic party oi Maine deeper than the most enthusiastic Republican has yet dreamed. Cox Agniu. Our excellent Brunswick correspondent ‘‘X,” whose whole communication we should be glad to print.had he not hceu anticipated by another party, says that the recollection of S. S. Cox’s infamous New York speech on New England had such an effect on the people in that vicinity that they would not go to hear him, aud that his audience at Brunswick was very small. We quote: \Ve well remember his hatred of New Eng land and bis sneers at her schools, churches and Puritanism As the boys say “it was a lit tie cheeky” lor him to stand in a New England village and address a New England audience. Had a Northern man said of tha South what lie has before said of New Nngland, aud then have dared to stand up before a Southern audi ence, he would at once have been treated to a hemp cravat, and suddenly passed away by promotion. We notice that Mr. Cox has addressed a note to the editor oi the Hath Times complain ing that the Press “garbled” his New York speech, particularly where we represented him as saying “Peuish New England!” He says that his language was, “Some madly say, ‘Per ish New England,”'and that he deprecated the sentiment. You cannot escape from your black record in this way, Mr. Cox. Your speech was one of the foulest, most libellous and most abusive tirades that ever fell from the lips of an American citizen. It was an at tempt to hold up New England and its people to the scorn of mankind. It was the most elaborate and carefully finished piece of vini fication that was ever uttered. You endeav ored to make New England appear to the world a sort of Nazareth, out of which no good thing could come—an accursed land occupied by an accursed people. You attacked all her material interests, as well as her theology, her institutions and her laws. You said: “If New England is not DRIVEN FROM THE UNION SHE WILL BE HUMIL LyED in it.” The humiliation you had in view was probably a deprivation of the equal representation in the Senate guarantied to her States by the Constitution, since you complain that she enjoys such representation. Now do you dare to make use ot such a con temptible subterfuge as to shield yourself be hind an imaginary interlocutor into whose mouth you put the words “Perish New Eng land,” and to say that you “deprecated the sen timent?” The spirit of your remarks was pre served in our extracts. We construed them just as an intelligent reader of Shakespeare would construe the words of Antony when he speaks of Brutus and Cassius as “honorable men.” If you are willing to let the people of Maine decide between us on this question) have your speech reprinted and circulated, or instead of your new address which you are now using, repeat your New York effort. You don’t dare to do it, Mr. Cox. The Democratic State Committee would give five dollars each for all the copies now extant in Maine in order to make a bonfire of thorn. That speech makes all the meetings that you are to address “fiz zles.” The people will not forget. Another Alarm!—The Washington Ex press learns that ‘ Gen. Grant, alarmed at the revolution going on in the public mind * * * will soon come out in a letter assuming a conservative position! ” The pre cise day is not yet named, but we infer from other remarks of the paper, that we may ex pect this precious document any hour. Per haps among the wonders of politicalchicanery, this trick may be played, of getting out a let ter of this kind, purporting to come from the General. Desperate to the last degree, there is no step to be lelt untried by this destructive party to accomplish their ends. We are to be surprised at nothing, but prepared for every thing, between this time and November. The most painful portion ot the article from which we quote, is yet to be stated. The edi tor says, the “repentance of Gen. Grant will come too late!” They cannot receive him. He should have fallen in their arms a month ago, if he had known what was good for him.— Nothing can “now save him from the wrath of the people!” And so the General “is whistled down the wind” by this valiant paper, the Washington Express. When that paper is compelled to record in its columns, if it lives a couple of months, the triumphant eleetion of Gen. Grant, it will then be as willing to eat large slices of humble pie, as it now is pot. val iant. Such swaggering fellows are always the most ready to beg the pardon of those whose contempt they have so richly deserved by their duplicity. Mlate Politics. The Republicans of Topsham have nomi nated Rev. David F. Potter of Topsham for. Representative to the Legislature for the towns of Topsham and West Bath. The Oxford Democrat says: “The halliards of the flag staff of the Seymour anl Blair flag on the hill were cut uu Tuesday night last. We do not believe there is a Republican in town mean enough to do such a thing. It is probable that the act was an ill advised one of the friends of the flag, done to make a little political capital** The Lewiston Journal says that it knows of five Democrats in that city who had intended to vote for Seymour and Blair who will now vote for Grant and Colfax, on account of the cowardly conduct of the Ku-Klux in making a murderous attack on the Tanners Thursday evening. We know seven men in this city who from this and similar reasons have t^ken the same course. Hon. W. H. Vinton had a most successful meeting at South Berwick on the evening of the 3d. It is estimated that the Republican gain will be thirty or forty in that town. There is actually a Democratic paper in Knox county so stupid as to affirm that the members of the Maine delegation in Congress voted for the copper tariff bill. The Boston Post started this lie, the Aigus copied it and it has just got to Rockland. The Globe tells a different story. All of the Maine members present voted against it, and the rest, who were absent, opposed it. Now, after a full and conclusive refutation of this story by reference to the official records, we think we are justified in saying that whoever repeats it lies. Perrin nt Yarmouth. Yarmouth, Sept. 5,1868. To the Editor of the Press: Last evening the Copperheads of our quiet town had another demonstration, remindrng one of the convulsive struggles of an expiring donkey. The great Republican meeting to hear Senator Wi’son and the news from Ver mont have so disheartened them that they find it almost impossible to assemble a greater num ber than are usually found in a Calithumpian Band, which they much resemble in principle as well as discordant noises. Mr. Perrin was the speaker, and his strongest efforts were put forth to prove the love of the Democratic par ty (and the Rebels in particular) for the flag of our country. Republicans cun judge of the task before him. The Republicans will soon have another of their grand, inspiring meetings, of which your readers w ill have due notice. Monday even ing, 7th, our Grant Club meet at Temperance Hall for drill. All those wishing to take part in the procession of Wednesday at Portland, are requested to attend. Another P. Gen. Me Clellan will sail from Liverpool on the 19th inst. for home, if he doesn't change his mind. Political Koterf. George William Curtis closed a recent pollt cal lette r as follows May God giro tlie country grace to lilt up its eyes to behold the bloody years from Sum ter to A ppomattox, to reflect who and what made those years, then to move forward to bring the rebellion at the polls, as it has al ready fought tt in the field, to an “uncondi tional surrender. Hon. E. B. Bigelow, a lew years since Dem ocratic candidate for Congress in Massachu setts, having been notified of his election to the Presidency of a Democratic Club, has replied that he does not now act with that party. The Boston Post has a correspondent up in St, Jobnsbury, Vt„ who, writing after the election, says the Republicans made some gains, but “I think on the whole the aggregate will not lie large.” That reminds tbe journal of the antediluvian who prophesied concern ing the flood, that “there wasn’t going to he much of shower, after all.” Remarking upon the ejectmeut of the negro members of the Georgia Legl-lature the New York Tribune declares that “it these things continue Congress must meet in September.” The Massachusetts Democracy have resolved that “the caprice of majorities is intolerable.” You can get a unanimous vote fur that resolu tion in every State prison in the land. The Democrats of St. Johnsbury, Vt., hav ing used the name of George W. Ely as can didate to the Legislature, that gentleman has issued a card in which he says that he doesn’t train in that company. Tlie doth ana odd Massachusetts Volunteers held a reunion recently at Fitchburg, and while passing down street they marched di rectly under the flags of the two parties. Un der the Grant flag they halted and gave three tremendous cheers, but went in silence by the other, which bears the names of the traitor Seymour and the turncoat and revolutionary Blair. Wisconsin is promised to Grant and Colfax by a majority not to fall below eighteen thou sand and that may reach twenty-two thousand. Last fall the Republican majority was but 4764. The Decatur. (Illinois) Democrat, speaks in the same sentence of Grant as “the butcher,” aud of Lee as “our noble old warrior at Rich mond.” Gov. Baker and Senator Hendricks of In diana had made their arrangements for a se ries of eleven joint discussions, the first to be held at Portlaud, Jay County, last Saturday. Governor Baker wished to have two meetings in each district, but Mr. Hendricks would cor. sent to only one. One example of the kind of gains made by the Republicans in Vermont is qutie instruc tive. It shows that the majority was not in creased simply by bringing out the Republican vote, but by actual conversions from the ranks of the opposition. Last*year a single Demo cratic senator was chosen, in a district consist ing of fourteen towns, of which St. Albans is one. His majority was 652 on a total vote of 3320. This year he was a candidate again, is contessedly a popular man, and drew out the full strength of the party; but he was defeated by a majority of 787 on a total vote of 4227. The Republicans increased their vote 1223, and the Democratic vote was 316 smaller than last year.making a net Republican gain of 1538, or moro than thirty-three per cent, of the whole vote, aud, if equally divided, more than one hundred votes to each town. The Conservative Army and Navy Union, the new Jackson Club and Seymour aud Blair Club, all of Washington City, have suspend ing payment. The New York World now thinks it very disgraceful that any candidate for President should say that he has no policy of his own to enforce against the will of the people. But it once thougnt differently. After his military record was as complete as now, aud before his being tried in a civil capacity, for which it has also commended him, it remarked: As Washington was elected and re elected on the strength of his character and services, without pledges asked or given, we trust that General Grant will be elected, if elected at all, in the same way, aud with the same generous confidence. Having restored the authority of the government we hope that he may add the highest civil to the highest military tame by re storing long lost cordiality of feeliug. Delaware is a small State and the Demo cratic majority is not large. In 1866, at the last State election held, it was carried by only 1200 majority. But the city cf Wilmington has shown a Republican gain in these two years no less than two hundred, of which one hundred and thirty are to be set down to the account of this year. Il the Republicans elsewhere will do as well they may easily take Deleware from the list of tho very small number of States that have been conceded to Mr. Seymour. Rumor asserts that General McClellan is about to take the stump in Pennsylvania for Seymour and Blair. The Troy Times says: “He has been ‘about’ to take something ever sines wc first heard of him. If he will suc ceed in taking even so much as a ‘stump’ wc shall be glad to chronicle the fact. It’s an eves bet that he won’t be able to decide whether to begin operations in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or New York until after the elec tion.” The Chicago Post says: “Amos Kendall writes himself down a ‘Jackson Democrat.’— Jackson Democracy becomes the present Blair party about as well as Mr. Kendall’s Jackson hat aud stock, bought in ’28, would itecome Frank Blair’s Byronic head and jaun ty neck. ‘Jackson Democrat!’ ” News Items. The assessors of Boston have just completed Ihe annual valuation and find that the taxa ble value of property in that city is nearly five hundred million dollars, an increase of twenty two million since last year. Sjreaker Colfax and his party, with Govern jr Hunt and family arrived at Denver, Col jrado, on the 4th, accompanied by a band of CTte warriors at their head. At the time of the Indian outbreak they were in the valley if the Arkansas river west of South Park. The L'te tribe, always faithful aud friendly to the whites, on being informed of the trouble by a messenger of Governor Hunt, sent a band of their braves, who escorted the party back to Denver. faitate Nows. ANDROSCOGGIN COUNTY. “Mr. John W. Parker, was Captain of the cavalcade in the Republican procession, last evening. While on duty on Lower Main street, he detected a man with a large stone in his hand, and he had barely made this dis covery when he saw him raise his arng. as if to throw it. Quick as thought, Mr. Parker seiz ed a revolver from a friend, made a dash for him, and presenting the loaded firearm to his face coolly assurred him that lie might (five stones, but only on condition of taking cold lead. Those democratic fingers loosed their hold, the stone dropped to the ground, and the fellow proceeded as last as his legs would carry hi tn toward the staiul*wliere the Democratic speakers were hoiding forth.”—Lewiston Jour nal.

SAGADAHOC COUNTY. The Bath Times learns that Dr. A. K. Gil more, of that city, and others, have made ar rangements for the running of a steamboat from that port to Augusta and intermediate landings. The Times says: “Tile steamboat in question is a new boat, built and fixed up expressly for this route, by Wm. &. A. Curtis, Cortland, and owned by A. K. Gilmotc She is about 90 feet in length by about 14 feet beam, with a tonnage of about 80 tons. She has side wheels, engine and boiler of first-rate quality, and every way constructed for'con venience of passengers, safety and speed. She will arrive here on Saturday ol this week, with the prosfiect of beginning her regular trips the week following.” WASHINGTON COUNTY.

Unbounded Enthusiasm. City Hall was again filled to overflowing Saturday evening, to listen to the addresses of the distinguished genllemeD whose names ap pear above. The enthusiasm of the people of Portland is on the increase. We have expe rienced nothing like it since the fires burned so brightly in 1860. The bare announcement of a Republican orator Li sure to bring out the people in a body. They are determined to keep the ball rolling uutil it has crushed the life out of the last remnants of the Democracy. The Tanners presented a splendid appearance as they marched towards the hall with bauners waving. On the stand we noticed besides the speakers of the evening Gov. Harriman of Now Hampshire, Hon. W. P. Fessenden, Gen. Shepley aud others. The meeting was called to order by N. A. Foster, Esq., of the City Committee, who called Judge Woodbury Davis to preside over the exercises of the evening. Judge Dav;s on assuming the chair referred to the great mis sion of the Republican party, and the tri umphant success with which it had fulfilled its promiso, and which success was to be per fected and consummated by the election of General Grant as President of the United States. The contest was not euded by the sur render of Lee, it remains for the couutry to seal the victory by the election of the Repub lican ticket in November. Mr. Ji,. w. Jbocke then brought the enthusi asm of the audience up to a fever point by singing a soul stirrin- soDg ta the tune of “Rally round the Flag, boys,” in the chorus of which the audience joined. Hon. R. G. Ingersoll of Illinois was then in troduced, and was received with a perfect storm of applause. He commenced by thank ing the soldiers of this country that the flag still floats, that the eagle still flies and that we are still a progressive people, and that we are not on the way to barbarism and Democracy. Is the country bettor than it used to be? Yes, a thousand times better! Who made it so? The Republican party. Who has given liberty to the people of this country9 It is the Re publican party. Who has removed from our Btatute books laws more iufamous than hell it self? The Republican party. The question presented to the Republicans when they came into power on the 4th of March, 1861, was either to attack the elements of barbarism which then existed in the country or have no government at all. The minute the first gun was fired, the people of this country was di vided into two parties, patriots and traitors. The Republican party at first wanted to com promise, but they do not wish to now. It has become courageous and noble. It has become magnificent by the baptism of blood through ' which it has passed. The Southern rebels did not wi*h to compromise, but took up the sword, <*nd by the decision* of the sword tht-ifniust "bid*. The Democracy id tlio North were defeated when the rebels were defeated in the field. Perish every party which depends for its suc cess upon the victory of the euemies of their country! It we had followed the advice of the Democ racy, would we have had a united country to day ? would we have had the abolition of sla very . would we have had a currency worth one cent on the dollar? The Democratic par ty at first acknowledged - the right of seces sion, and if we had followed them our country would have been divided into fragments. If we take their advice to-day, we shall repudiate the national debt incurred to nave the nation. Had the soldiers followed Democratic advice the people and they would have been covered up in infamy. Just in proportion as a commu nity is bad, Seymour and Blair will gt-t the must votes, until we reach Five Points when they will get every vote. The Democratic party has n’t a principle in sympathy with de mocracy,—not one. The Democratic party complained of the Republican party during the war because they arrested men and incarcerated them in “Lin coln Bastiles,” and beceause the party sus pended the writ of habeas corpus, when there were not one in forty of the Democracy who knew it from a leather apron. The Democra cy declare that they descended from Washing ton and Jetlerson. “Mv God,” said the speak er, “what a descent/” This government had a right during the rebellion to use all the means for its preservation that our forefathers did for its inauguration. They imprisoned by the hundred; they arrested by wholesale, and in carcerated in “ Washington Bastiles” and “1? ranklin Jails.” The Republican party can quote Washington aud Jefferson as well as they, and to better effect. They complained that we organised negroes as soldiers, and put them on an equality with white soldiers. Yes* we did, and one of them with a musket iu his hands did more to suppress the rebellion than all the Democratic papers of the North. But, say these Democrats, you have allowed the negroes to vote. Yes, we have. In the days of Washington negroes voted, and the ' question now is, if that were so are modern Democrats fit to vote with negroes now? Is not a negro who is an honor to the black race better than a«rhite man who is a disgrace to the white race? But we having done what our fathers did and having put down the rebellion, it was our duty to see that no man who had fought for the flag should be under the feet of him who had insulted it. Perish from tbe air a flag that will not protect its protectors. So we made up our mind that tho rights of ail should be upheld. So we passed the civil rights bill. When we sent food to thoso who had just emerged from a slavery of two hundred years, aud yet the Democrats go about the country rending the air with their groans, because tbe government fed these starving men. It should be a c ruse of shame to them that they have no more philanthropy about them. We have not spent money enough to compensate tor the long years of unrequited toil. He then said- the loyal men should govern the South, and the Democrats declare that Rebels have a right to vote; that they never have lost it. The loyal men who carried on the government in time of war, in spite of reb els, canc arry on the government in time Of peace without any rebel assistance. It is poet ic justice to see the loyal negroes making con stitutions for their thieving rebel masters. Every improvement of the country has been made by the Republican party in spite of Dem ocrats—the rebellion was crushed in spite ol Democrats, and they now have the impudence to claim a right to administer the government which they had attempted to ruin. But these Democrats have lately met in New York, where they embraced their South ern brethren, whom they had not met in a love feast for twelve long years. They there met and mingled with the men who had murdered Northern soldiers, and starved our sons and brothers. They made a platform and nomina ted Seymour and Blair. Blair wrote a blood thirsty letter and was at once taken into the rebel Democratic bosom. Seymour declared during the war that he preferred the destruc tion of the country to the loss of slavery, which commended him at once to the Convention. Another Convention met at Chicago, and nominated better men. Grant, who won our first victory, won our last. While Grant was fighting tbe enemy, Seymour was addressing a rebel mob .in terui9 of endearment. He was declaring that onr shipping was being captur ed and being destroyed within sight of New York. He asked, “where are your promised victories?" If he had been far sighted he would have seen onr victorious troops under Meade chasing Bee from Pennsylvania and the next President of the United Statesentering at the head of his triumphant legions the beleaguered city of Vicksburg. For whom will you vote,—the man who was opposing the government, or the man who exerted all his powers in its support? If the people elect Seymour, the speaker said, he should believe that the people were incapable of self govern ment. We have a great debt upon the industry of the country. Who made it? The Democratic party. But they say the national debut must be paid in greenbacks. Wheu a man gives his note to another he agrees to pay him some thing better than his note, which is the cur rency of the nation. When a nation, which is a citizen of the world, gives its note, it must pay in something better than its note, and that is coin,, which is the currency of the world The only way in which we can pay our nation al debt is to raise the public credit so that a dollar in greenbacks is equal to a dollar in gold, which can be done by the election of Grant in November. The resources of the na tion are sufficient to pay our debt, and we can pay it easily, if we only preserve onr honor. But the Democracy say that the people are starving. The speaker denied it. The coun ry is prosperous. The Democracy think that things generally are going to ruin, if they are out of office. The people cau reduce taxes— they prefer to have their pockets taxed rather than their honor. The Republican party be lieve in taxing the luxuries of life. They be lieve in taxing champaign and whiskey more than they do bread; cigars more than food, and railroads more than the farm. The speaker said the reason of his favoring the Republican party is because it is the party of liberty and progress. In every couutry where the mind is in chains, religion is super stition, and every element of man’s being is perverted. When his body is in chains, there is no industry. Freedom is the grandest con dition ol humanity. The speaker was in favor of giving to every other man all the rights which he claimed for himself. But the Demo crats say that such a state of things cannot exist without degrading the superior race. What a doctrine! Does a man become bad by doing good to the wicked? The man who stoops to raise a fallen brother, God will never degrade. As Mr. Ingersoll closed there were loud and earnest eries of “Go on!" but the speaker de clined to proceed, stating that he would again address tbe citizens of Portland on Wednes day. Nearly all tho time that he was speak ing the applause was like a continuous roar of thunder. Mr. Dickens said on the occasion of his first visit to America, that every man with whom he was made acquainted was commend ed to him as “one of the most remarkable men in the United States.” Could he make the ac quaintance of Mr. Ingersoll, aud hear him speak, his own judgment would confirm the complimentary language of the iutrodnetiou. To an Eastern audience the mauners of a Western Boanerges are startling. Mr. Inger soll does not stand at all upon conventionali ties. He take 8 off his ciavat, rolls up his sleeves and brings the more fastidiqus ol his hearers to fear that he will presently take off his coat. A fine physical organization, a pow erful voice, ready command of language, in tense earnestness and fearlessness and unusual facility in the use of sarcasm enable him to pnt more life into a speech than perhaps any other raau in the country. His colors are all laid on with a liberal baud. There is the breadth of the prairies in his statements—and occasionally in bis stories. Take him all in all we shall probably never see hit like again. The Honorable John Conness, Senator in the Congress ol the United States, was then Produced by Judge Davis. Owing to the lateness of the hoar, and the condition of his voice, he made only a few remarks, urging all to renewed effort in behalf of the Republican party. The meeting then broke up with cheers tor Grant and Colfax. No one need told that it was in eveay respect a success, tor everybody was there except a few misguided individuals who were listening to Sunset Cox at the Dem ocratic Headquarters. Rev. Db. James Pbatt, of Philadelphia preached at St. Stephen’s Church, yesterday. In the forenoon he presented the claims ot tlie Episcopal Knowledge Society in an able man ner and strongly denounced ritualism. Attention, Continentals !—The Commer cial Continentals will meet this evening for drill at 7 o’clock, at Lancaster Hall. Per order. Meeting at Democratic Headquarters — A procession of about fifty persons marched into the Democratic Headquarters Saturday evening, and a small gathering listened to speeches trom Gen. Meauey, the Fenian leader. Hon. S. S. Cox of New York, “a gentleman from the home of Seymour,” and others.— Meauey’s remarks were received with great enthusiasm by the Irishmen present, who evi dently regarded his services of much greater value than those of Senator Conness, who has done something besides talking in behalf of the rights of naturalized citizens. Conness and his Republican associates in Congress have done more for the protection of the rights of naturalized citizens by passing a law in their behalf last session than all the Democratic ad ministrations from Jefferson’s down. When Cox was called for he jumped up with the flea-like agility that he so often displays in his oratory. We liked his speech. The “nig gers” he painted were the blackest, had the thickest lips and the longest heels, had inure cranial deficiencies and out of the way facia) angles than any heretofore exhibited on auy stage. The conception made Mr. Cox’s Irish hearers fairly howl and dance with de light. Then his “carpet-bagger” was well done. A Union soldier, who claims the privi lege of makiug his home in the South, might possibly object to being represented as a thiev ing, worthless scoundrel whom the civilized North had speWed out. But then Mr. Cox never did have a very good opinion of soldiers. At one time we were apprehensive that Cox would be discouraged by the character of his audience from making any of his famous ora torical flights. But we were not thus to be disappointed. “The beads of sweat on the brow oi honest industry,” said Mr. Cox, “are pearls in the coronet of ”—here we trembled for Occidental celebrity; he had his coronet all set with pearls, but couldn’t seem to lay his hand just at that moment on a proper subject for coronation. Calliope, however, came to his aid, he finished his sentence—“are pearls iu the coronet of Immortality. ” Now we could sit for weeks at the feet of Mr. Cox and learn ora tory from hie lips, golden like those of Chryso stom. As a preliminary we only wish tfi kuow first, if Immortality wears a coronet every day* or, whether she, or he, or it, according to the gender of Mr. Cox’s personified being, assumes it solely on state occasions and for Democratic meeting? Second, whether Immortality has I more than one corouet; and, it so, how many? Third, if the beads of sweat on the brow of any but a “white male” may be dignified in this way? We await with great interest an answer to the last question, for it settles the question as to whether Immortality gets any contribu tions lor her coronet from the South, since nearly all the sons “of honest industry” there are “niggers.” Match Gahe of Base Ball for the Championship.—The match game between the Eons, of Portland, and Cushnocs, of Au gusta, for the silver ball aud State champion ship, was played on the grounds near the Arsenal on Saturday afternoon last, and re sulted in a victory for the Eons. Owing to the usual delay the game was not commenced until 3 o'clock, when the Cush nocs, having won the toss, sent the Eons to the bat. Very little excitement was manifested until the fourth innings of the Cushnocs, when Stimpson made a splendid hit clean over the center field, sending himself clear home aud scoring the first run lor the Cushnocs. The Eons took the lead at the start and kept it un til the close of the seventh inning, when the game was called owing to the increasing dark ness, the score standing 39 to8. The Cushnocs were extremely careless in their playing, wliiie the Eons played careful to the end, watching every point and proving themselves the best nine ever raised in the city. We append the score be,ow: EONS. CUSHNOCS. Outs. Runs B. Oats. Runs. B.

Falmouth Oyster and Lunch House.— Mr. Samuel Kyle—“in ty his tribe increase"— has a genius for keeping a retreshment saloon that is calculated to awakeu In his customers a feeling that he might perhaps even “keep a hotel," and is consequently a prospective can didate fur the Presidency like all of that race. The delegation from the Press office that visit ed his newly opened Oyster and Luuch House, No. 1. Falmouth Hotel building, Saturday evening, were fairly amazed at the triumphs of culinary skill set before thorn by the proprie tor, and the other newspaper men present seemed equally gratified, some of them even going so far as to disturb the solemnity of tho occasion by humorous speeches. Our speech we deterred for this occasion; it isn’t funny, but ia true,“Mr. Kyle's establishment is a suc cess aud an ornament to society.” If you are incredulous, try it. Mr. Hoyt P. Turner, well known in this city, and whose name is a guaranty of good man agement in his department, has been engaged by Mr. Kyle to superintend the affairs of the kitchen. Primary School No. 6.—Thia school, which has heretofore held its sessions in tho school building on Spring, near State street, is to be removed to the school house on Spring, near Oak street, which has been finely fitted up for its accommodation, and is now one of the most attractive school houses in the city. As the repairs are not yet completed the opening of the school must be postponed for a few days, and will be duly announced when the building is ready. Democratic Municipal Economy.—Those who believe that a Democratic City Govern ment would look very carefully to the econom ical expeuditure of the public money, would do well to remember that by the admission of the Argus a Democratic member of the City Council moved an appropriation of 85000 for a Fourth of July celebration the preseut year. “A Ward Six Tanner” writes to say that the consolation the Argus and Post derive from the Vermont election makes him think of the boy who asked his father for bread and he gave him a stone. “Never mind, father,” he says, “perhaps I can get some nourishment out of this; if I cannot, perhaps some one else will swallow it.” Attention Battalion!—ah ■»*«»kara the Cavalry Battalion, now organizing in this city, ami those wishing to join are requested to meet at Republican Headquarters, Lancas ter Hall, this (Monday) ovening at precisely 7 o’clock, mounted, for drill.

Moses Lane, Esq., Superintendent of the Brooklyu Water Works, aud one of the most eminent hydraulic engineers living, says of Mr. Wells’ report on the Water Power of Maine;—“It is one of tho most valuable con tributions to the hydraulogy of New England that has ever been offered.” Row at Gorham's Corner.—On Saturday evening about t> o’clock, a number of Irishmen went into a shop kept by Mr, Conley and got into a dispute and afterwards came to blows. The disturbance resulted in the breaking in of the windows and door of the shop. Two of the parties were arrested. Death of a Maine Man in California.— Should any of the relations of John Jennings, a native of Maine, who died on board the steamer Ossipee, at Monterey, California, Aug. 11th, desire any information concerning him they can obtain it by applying at the Custom House, Portland. Democratic Doctrine.—A leading Demo crat ot this city stated yesterday in public con versation that a soldier who received a pension frotti Government was not entitled to vote any n»*re than a town pauper. Think of this sol diers, you who fought to preserve this country that protects such scoundrels as this.
