Prom the Newark (iV. J. ) Journal. SPEECH OP THE HON, FERNANDO WOOD, DELIVERED AT A McfILBLI.AN RATIFI . CATION MEETING, IN NEWARK, N: J. Fellow Citizens; —lt is now four years since I had the honor Of delivering in the oily of Newark a political address. I hive been reminded of the fact that four years ago, preceding the lasr Presidential elec tion, 1 had accepted ah invitation to speak to the Democracy of this city. Frbiii that day to this I have had no opportunity to confer with my political friends here.— While listening to the speakers that have •preceded me, my mind rcsistlessly wan dered buck to the time when I last appear ed here. 1 Mr. Wood then proceeded to draw a 1 contrast 1 of the times'preceding the last Presidential election and the present day. Four years ago we were a free, prosperous and happy people; our flag was respected all over the world; our commerce was in every ocean; our Embassadors were re ceived everywhere with respect, and all the world were looking upon Us with won der, awe and fear. At borne we were united from the Atlantic to the Pacific, all living happily under the Constitution, and each worshiping God according to the dictates of his own conscience. Now, how changed the scene! Ouf best blood bad been poured out in a'fruitless war, and discord reigned where once all (fas' har mony and peace. He asked them, freed from all excitement, to contemplate this change. The Constitution was no longer regarded as our law ; we were despised by the nations of Europe; rent asunder by fratricidal strife; ruled by an Adminis tration whose governing motives were am bition and bate; one million of lives, splendid specimens of American manhood, had been lost in carrying on the war; no protection for either rich or poor; tyran ny was denounced only at hazard of liber ty, and provost marshals were everywhere threatening us with a deprivation of the freedom ; bequeathed to us by our forefath ers. Thus all we had inherited was on the imminent verge of dissolution. Why was this change, within so short a period of time? He had no reproaches to offer against men who honestly differ from him in political views. Some say all our troubles are owing to the spirit of Puritanism which pervades a portion of our country; others trace our difficulties to the division of the Democratic party, and still others to other sources. He woUld only say the fact was undeniable that the trouble was upon us. For him self, ho would say, let the past take care Of the past ; our duty was uow to consid er what is the best course to pursue to brihg back peace and happiness to our country 1 . We had now an unfortunate Wat' upon our bands, and onco in four years Amcricahs were allowed to remedy fhe-eVils under which they labored, through the ballot-box. We propose, therefore, to right the ohi Ship 'of State once more, and put her in'suiooth water, where, un der the guidance of Almighty God, We ! shall all be once more citizens of the Uni- I ted States. How Was this to bo done ? The Administration has proven its incofn r potency cithef to carry on the war or to make peace. We had given every man and every dollar they had asked for, and the rebellion is hot yet crushed. Five thousand millions of dollars of public debt were noW hanging over the American people, which had either to bj liquidated or repudiated,mid Mill we had not crush cd the rebel’ on. What was the cause ? It lay cither in a vraut of capacity on the I'.'t v ,i* 1 *: , r . ' ■ ■ AIR. MD. FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER "7, BEL | part of the party in power to restore the * Union, or else they do not desire so to do -1 l*c it either, one is us great a crime as the other, and is the same to ns. Now, whether we individually be for peace or for war, we should all unito to restore a Democratic government to pow er, that we may have the SOiith back again with us and save our liberties beforealT is ’ lost. He was frank to say that he was op posed to this war because, iu his opinion, it could not succeed in its object. The Speaker hero made an eloquent apostrophe to peace as being the only balm which - ctmld heal thb wounds of a suffering coun tiy. He had said that the Administration either could not or would not restore the Union, and ho had the very bfest reason for saying so. The Union could have bcou restored on four different occasions, flu took the responsibility for saying this.- Mr. Wood then went on to edufiubrate the • four opportunities where peace could have been made and the Union restored, among which was the offer made through his own person in December 1 , 1862, and the at tempt of Hon. Alexander 11. Stephens to get the ear of the President, by authority of the Confederate Government; but Mr. Stephens was denied that privilege. Mr. Lincoln had emphatically stated that he would entertain no propositions for peace unless the South first consented to abolish slavery. In 1784 there was a rebellion, which, considering the population of the Country at that day, was as formidable as the present one. The speaker then gave a'concise history of the Whiskey Rebel lion in'Pennsylvania. What a contrast there was between Lincoln and his prede cessors. Hut that rebellion, tioputred in the days of Washington; He (Washing ton) did tot assert that rebels must be crushed out, but in the greatness of his heart ho personally ’became a negotiator and commissioner. Ite reasoned with the rebels brought them back to an obser vance of tho laws. This is Lincoln's Ad ministration ; hehce the difference. Now they proposed to exercise their- constitu tional rights, and God (not Abraham Lincoln) willing, they would" go 1 to the I polls, declare their choice, and have either a fair election or a free fight; : ff tha free , 'dom of the ballot Was not Secured to them, his recourse was revolution. But if allbw ! ed to exCrCisC the franchise in this election, he advised every Citizen to deposit hli vote for the man of his choice and that choice, depend Hipob 1 it, would bo George B. McCleilap. [Loud cheer?.J ‘- l The issue tow was whether they would continue to submit to such outrages as this Administration bad iifiposed upon them, or put a man into the Presidency who would restore this Union and save our lib erties. He would say frankly that Mc- Clellan was not originally his choice. He had preferred some one who more nearly agreed with him as to tho proper mode of ‘dealing -with the unfortunate difficulty in whiuhithe country was now involved ; but McClellan was the candidate of the lion; hearted Democracy, aud that was enough for him. [Tremendous cheers ] He,be lieved that when McClellan was inaugu rated, he. would set himself* to work to atop this war, to save and restore the Union, to give us back our liberties, to open the. bastlles, to let every man have lik own opinion whether it be for or against to bring back the work ing of (he Government to the days of out fathers. He doubted whether many men truly appreciated the vast importance of this election. If McClellan were defeated;* -in tho speaker's opinion, it.would be Che last Presidential election. Look back upou the past four years and sec the strides that despotism had made. *lf four years ago oue had been told that citizens would have been incarcerated in Government bas tiles, without trial or without having been brought faca to face with their accusers, he would have replied tfaat.it was impossi bio. But the people had been patient, al most indifferent, to these usurpations of (heir rights. If in so short a period they , bad become so indifferent to those outra ges, the transition would be very slight to the worst species 01 despotism. They . had borue these things because' they had looked forward to the Presidential leUetipn , to remedy these wrungs—the best proof , that they were capable of self-govern , meat. . ! in, .. r When he has been told that the Ame- P rican people wore cowards for bearing all f these usurpations he said “No. ,r The I American people were a law-abiding peo , pie, and were willing to await a cefustita : tioiml remedy. Now that constitutional > remedy was afforded them. 'ln Npvem-- ber next they were Id puss in review the > acts of Abraham Liucoln, and pToudfince their opinion thereon. If in the exercise ) of that the people were attacked coliectivc r ly by the military power of the GoVerq > incut, then his advice' to thein 1 was to r strike, and to bo sure to strike' homo.—• r 1 Then he (the speaker) would be willing to I I shoulder his musket and go Hi to the ranks ) in defence of their common rights and lib-' , erties. But it would not come to this,— '* Despotism was ever'cowardly. Sneaking 3 into men's bedchambers when all hotitkl men were asleep, and dragging an- unarm ed citizen' thence, was one thing; faut'ineet ing the aroused Democracy, detcrnlincd to 3 protect their rights and having the power 1 to do so, was another thing. He consid -1 ored it impossible that the people of this a country, iu view of the past, iVOuld eonfi'n- 1 t uo this Administration in power. Coin -3 man sense rovolved at such an idea. -Iu 1 conclusion he would thank the audience for the attention they had paid to his ro . marks. [Cries of-“go •n ; jro on:”] He j wanted to soc tho Un on restored and this 7 ,ii 1. *1 f *> heritage of freedom transmitted to their posterity. He had an abiding confidence that the 'Althighty would in the benefi cence of Hk Providence, yet unite out na tion. The Southern people he knew iheto brive and noble people, and conciliation only was necessary to bring tbctit again within the folds'df'ihc Union. He would net be in public life but chat ho had hope for his country. , If he Were satisfied that all hope had fled, he would retire to anoth er land to mourn and sorrow over t|ie downfall of this great Republic. He bog ged them to'strain every nerve to preserve the Gbverirtnent for the Sake their children. When they told their sons iind daughters Of the struggle of the'RuVoln tion, let them remember that that under taking was nothing to thd in which we are now engaged. Let them rfind history, and they would find jhat whenever a peo ple submitted to a despotism like thit Which how'gbvcrned them—if they,'allow ed 1 the latt bhanoe of roguiuihg llieir liber ties to pass thorn—they never afterward recovered them. They would learn also another thing—-that no purtdy Agricultu toral people, like those ofthb South, were fever' Conquered. ‘ Hence let us treat, ne gotiate, uaC kiud words of persuasion, if we would bring them back. Another fact ih* history was(and he challenged any Repub lican to clouy it) thhV no revolted' popple who had maintained tt Government for five yedrs had ever yet been put down. Therefore, let ns try some other and more feasible mode of, restoring our dis tracted country to its former happy condi tion; Negotiation was, as he had shown, the policy of Washington and bis Commissioners were more powerful than cannon—a kind ifytd more powerful thaji the bullet of; bayonet We had Oven un der President Fillmcfre appointed Com mis 'sioners to-go to Utah when lire jtlonpudip revolted against the Government, and set up Brigham Young as (heir Emperor.— Fillmore treated with them, and treated sudohssfulljr.

Triata, Coiqraisar’o'- er, to treat with the 3loxiean Government, atld he treated successfully; Ihb war closed 'ahd'pbaco was restored. ' Nd'iv, this wafe what Lincoln said he would uot do. There fore we propose to piil in his'place a Presi dent who Will treat,Who will stop if po.s?|bl(s this bbrrible effusion of btupcl,' restore peace to ,OUk beloved country, make our flag once'again thb symbol of a united nation, and it wjll then be our boqst that from Canada to the ’ Gulf, and fc<)m the Atlantic to tho Pabifie, we Will have o.ne undivided "country, “great, glorious and free.” " 1 10 ' " • .. .. -Prom the Newark (A.

The Washington, Chronicle, one of Mr. Lincoln’s Washington organs, has the fol lowing frank admission, which, had it appeared in a Democratic paper, would b branded as rank treason. Wn commend it to those who oppose peace, as furnish ing food for reflection. Although aimed at Mr. Chase and his financial policy, tho Ckroniclt has unwittingly given the strong est kind of an argument against the Presi dent and his party: Tho (Government is payingpto-day, two dollars, and a half for every dollar's Wortjh 6f material it is buying to carry on this war. Tho soldiers who arc fighting your battles are suffering for their pay, because of the want of funds in the-treasury.— Their.families are suffering for food and clothing, because the soldier does not. get bis hard-earned wages, i We are entailing on ourselves and on our children double tire debt there is any necessity for,, and running the risk of a repudiated currency and a dishonored national credit, because greenbacks are at a discount and gold at a premium. We are adding daily to the prices of every leading article, and impo sing a fearful advance on the very neces saries of life, tbus nccessitating a constant advance ii wages, which, in turn, compels an increase in the price of goods, and the end will inevitably be national bankrupt cy, a fearful financial crash, unless this terrible enhancement of Value is arrested."

He told a wealthy patient, long under his care, that he could do no more for him, but that a certain Dr. Robinson, at Inver ness, several hundred miles distant, was re markably successful in such complaints. Away went the invalid, flushed with the hope of seeing Dr. Robinson. But to bis utter dismay, no one at Inverness had ever seen or heard of such a physician. Full of indignation, the genileuum returned to vent his wrath against Sydenham, which Was'expressed in no very measured terms. “Well,” replied Sydenham* “afdyou. id better health i’ ! “.Yes, I am perfectly well, but no thaoks to you.” ' “No,” says Sydenham,, “hot you. may thank Dr. Robinson for curing you.
