It will bo observed that whllo both par tics ngrco In demanding tho lion of sllvorns raonoy together with gold, both llkowlso domand tho maintenance of tho purchnslng nnd dobt-paylng power of tho felU or dollar at an equality with tho purchnslng and tho dcbt-pnlng power of tho gold dollar. This Inferontlally forbids tho unrestricted coin ago of tho sllcr dollar, becauso such coin n go would Immediately reduce tho purchasing and debt-paying power of tho silver dollar vory much below that of tho gold dollar. Iho Kopubllenus. fur thermore, explicitly n-k that sllvor shall bo coined "with such robtrictlons nnd under such pro islons. to bo determined by legis lation, as will feccuto tho mnlntoiianco of tha parity of aluo of tho two metals;" whllo tlio Democrats insist upon such "hnfeguards of legislation" na will lnsuro tlio bamo lcsult. Doth parties, llkowlso, faor an International ngreranent upon n par ratio of value between elior nnd gold. 'Iho Democratic patty, In addition to nil this, goes further, nnd domnnds tho lepeal of tho Shmimah uctot July 14, 1300. under which 4,000,000 ounces of silver aro added each month, nt their bullion value, to tho currency, and assorts that " tho dollar unit of vnluo of both metals must bo of equal In tilnslo und exchangeable valub" ns tho llrst means of insuring tho equality of tho power of tho silver dollar with that of tho gold dollar. Doth parties aro thus prccludod from any legislation which will lower tho unit of vuluo below that of tlio gold dollar, but tho Domocrats affirmatively promise besides, a repeal of tho act of July 14, 1890, which is slowly working out tho result which tho sllor men deslro to produco Immediately by tho unrestricted colnago of sllvor. Tlio Democratic position is. therefore, moro fa vorablo to gold and less so to 6ilvcr than that of tho Hcpubllcans. IJourlco Coclcran. At about two o'clock on tho morning of Thutsday tho lion. DouitKr. Cockhoi aroso to addiess tho Chicago Convention. Ulio lopiesentntlvos of tho Domocracy had been In bebsion throughout tho night. They hud been under a ceaseless strain of contest for muny hours, and tho ordeal had been tho moio exhausting becnuso of nn umcstrnlnod and howling mob lu tlio galleries of tlio vast barn in which tho Cotnontlou met. Deliber ation had been imposbibio in that ilotous nsfrombly. Tho gieat heat of tlio night had been mado stilling by tho nb teiicu of any means of proper ventilation in tho huge btrticturo, packed with nearly twenty thousand excited people. It. was a tlmo when tho bttongest physi cal endurance might well havo snapped, unci when a man would not havo been lilaniahln if hi had sunk into lnural and Intellectual apathy, from which by no fouo of will could ho arouss himself In that poioncus nlr. Delegates nnd audi enco wete worn out nnd burned out by tho fthoutliigand feverish excitement which had pmvnllod for twelve hours. They w oro im patient to bo over with their agony of sus pni".e. Ihey weto crazy for a ballot. They wanted no moro talk, nnd least of all from any ono of thoso who steadily resisted tho puipoao of tho majority. The candidates had all been proposed, and tho crowd wanted 'tho nomination of Cleveland ut once aud finally. Under circumstances so depressing nnd so hostile, IIoukkh Cockuan began tho gi catest speech which has oerbeou mado in a DcniocintbCoiiM'iitlon. Ho spoko to cars unwilling to listen to him nnd to men who hud nlready decided tho caso ngnlnst him; but so wonderful Is tho power of tlio divlno gift of eloquonco, nnd so lrre sistlblo is it when charged with earnest and sincere conviction, that tho orator stilled ovon that frenzied nud hostilo multi tude. Ho compollcd them to liston to him, and by his glorious art ho mado tho listening a delight, hateful as many of his words wero to them.' They were waiting to noralnato a candidato for Presldont, but thoy had beforo them an orator. They might hato his causo, but thoy could not resist tho spoil of tho gonlus which Is so beautiful and so enthralling for nil man fortunate enough to hoar such a speech. Of all tho gifts bestowod on mankind tho choicest Is this gift of eloquonco. It must bo a gift, for it is novor ncquir ablo. Hy his own powor a man can no moro ninko of hlmsolf an orntor llko Douitrcu Cookhan than ho can mould his form into tho shnpo of an Apollo. Tho only Author of tho oiator is tho Almighty. Ily Ills election nnd fashioning ho is bi ought fotth nnd commissioned. No occasion could havo tcstod moio severely tho possession of this divlno gift than that nt Chicago on Thursday morning; and Uouiike Cockuan boro tho test as if it wero a gracious Btimulant for his powors fur nished by an audloneo ougor to rondor him as6lstanco in their cxerclso. What hosald was tt no, but It was not tho sort of truth that tho ctowd wanted to hear. Yet thoy could only libton, and llstoningnp plaud tlio genius of tho orator. They woro fascinated by his beautiful art. Nor was it a wild and Impassioned spoocli decoiving tho lntollect whllo it stirred the emotlous. It was a logical arguinont, consecutive order ly, appealing to tho Judgment and tho con victions nnd rootod In strong and ovorlast Ing principles; tho specido principles which distinguish tho Democracy, and tho gonoral principles which nro essential to all por rnnnoiit political organization and pros polity. It was strong meat and not milk for babes. It was argument forged by tho Intclloct, aud not sentimental syllabub whipped up by moro emotion. Tho groat and luostimablo value of this splendid spooclr was that with the vision nnd tho force of genius itdlscornod and de scribed the dostruotlvo lulluoncos of Slug wumpory and warned the Doraocraoy against thorn. It showed tho Democracy that It thoy would bo an aggrcssle paity, vlrilo, enduring, and worthy of popular respoct, thoy must stamp out those emasculating tondoncics, the symptoms and consequences of exhaustion and decay In manly tigor. Mugwumpory Is meretricious morally and politically, nnd Bouiike Cockka-N's warning to the Democracy to ovoid tho tawdry crea ture will yet bo remomborod In sor row by tho Domocracy, if It U not hooded. His speech ought to bo read by every Domoerut, byooiy Itepubllcau. and by ocry llmruumn. it constitutes a Mmammmmmmmm primer, nnd levan exposition ot eound politi cal doctrlno clearly nnd forcibly presontod for tho Instructfim of all tho peoploforall tlmo to como. lloor.Kn CocKiurf was tho leading, tho most admirable.

A groat orator who Is equal to a great occasion is elected lu tho councils of otorulty.iaa Johx Calvix puts It. God alono can mako him, and ho is a product of tho divine-hands, not duplicated nnd repented. Tho modol is now nnd fresh ovory tltnu. Tlio Chicago Convention has mado known to all tho Union a great oiator. and Tam many cornea back to Now York covered with glory. Mr. Gladstone's Manifesto. In his address to tho electors of Midlo thian Mr. Glkdstomj makes it clonr that ho roinnlns in public llfo for tlio solo pur posoof ftilillllng his promlso to glvo Ireland tho powerof Bolf-govornmont. Ho does not dlsputo tho Impottanco of other pinnies in tho Llberul platform. bucIi as tho reform of electoral registration and tho payment of members of tho House of Commons, but ho docs not dlsgulso his Intention ot leaving tho uttnlnmcnt ot thoso objects to other and younger hands. If ho lingers on tho political btngo uftor sixty years ot activity and usefulness, it Is for asinglo purposo. and, thnt accomplished, ho will dopait. It Is a striking eoincidenco that during tho v nolo of Mr. Gladstonl'b publlo llfo tho Dish question has blocked thowhools of English legislation. Ho entered Parlia ment at tho epoch of tho Cathollo Emanci pation bill and of tho first Deform bill tho epoch when Ireland can bo said to have llrst awakened toa6onsoot thowiong in flicted upon her by tho Act of Union, nnd nt tlio saroo tlmo to a perception of tlio weapons which might boubed for Its repeal. From that day to tills thoro has boon a ro peal party in tho IIouso of Commons, but uover until 1S83 did It havo a fair pros pect of success. For tho corporation of Ireland's pretended representatives, Whig and Tory Ministers allko had been willing to pay Judgeships, governor ships, and other plnces of emolument and honor in tlio various dopartmonts of tho Government, but novor would any of them seriously entertain tho projoct of rovlvlng tho Parliament at Dublin. Mr. Gladstone is tho first Prlmo Minister who has ven tured to openly proposo tho repeal ot tho Act of Union, for that Is practically Involved In tho resuscitation ot nn Irish lcglslaturo. Tho proposal lias cost him exclusion from ofllco for six years at an ogo when ho could 111 afford to watt, but it now seems probable that within thren weeks tho electors of Great Britain will show themsoUos con vinced of tho Justice and wisdom of his purposo. It will bo observed that In tho manifesto, of which wo published an abstract yester day, nothing is said as to tho details of tho mcasuro which Mr. Gudstonk means to Intioduce. Wo nro felmply told that tho typo of homo rulo which ho contemplates will bo "shclteied by lmpeiial supremacy." Whothor this means that Irish members will bo excluded from tho Parliament at Webtrulnster, as thoy wore by tho bill of Wfi. or will bo retained thoro in accordance with Mr. Gladstone's later declarations. It Is Impossible to say. Equally Imposslblo is it to infer whethor or no tho veto power onco lodged in tho English crown, which Is generally supposed to have been lost by non-user ns regards an act of tho Parlia ment at Westmlnstar, Is to bo revived and mado applicable to tho acta of a Parlia ment nt Dublin. It tho latter bo Mr. GLADsroNE'a intention and how other wise can homo rulo bo "sheltered by Imperial supremacy?" on whose nd vlcowill tho roIcd veto powor bo exor cised ? On that of- tho Primo Minister, accountnblo only to tho Houso of Commons at St. Stephen's, an assembly In which Iriihmon will either havo but a focblo voico or nono nt all 1 Should such an arrange ment bo doomed unacceptable by Irish Na tionalists, will 3Ir. Gladstone bo able to hit upon a moro satisfactory method of oxort lug tho veto powor ? This Is ono of tho many porploxlng questions which wo can not hopo to seo answered till tho now Homo ltulo bill Is produced. Me.inwhllo it Is o Ident that so fnr as Mr. Gladstone Is personally concorned, thoro Is but one lssuo in tills canvass, nnd that is tho question whothor tlio wiong dono by tho suppression of tho Dublin Parliament shall bo rodressod, and Ireland onco moro permitted to regulate her own affairs. The MeCartlijite Appeal. An appeal for contributions of money from tho Unitod States to further tho tri umph of homo rulo In tho approaching gon oral election has been put forth by tho Mc Curthyltcs, who occupy 60 of thofijlilsh scats carried by tho Nationalists six years ago, Tlio address Is signed by Mr. Justin McCAitnir himself. Mr. Sexton, Mr. Dil lon, Mr. T. P. 0'Co.v.oit, Mr. William OT.iukv. nnd Mr. T. Healy. It declares that a reunion of tlio Irish factions Is im posslblo, nnd that n dolorminod contest bo tweeu thorn at the ballot box cannot bo aver ted. It asks tlio filondsof Ireland in this country to furnish thorn with tho moans of beating their follow Nationalists, who, undor tho leadership of Mr. John E. IlEDiioxD, hold 20 Irish seats In tho present Houso of Commons. It will bo moro dlflicult to got llvo dollars for such a purposo than It would bo to got fifty to bo used against tho Unionists. If in such n crisis as tho prcsont, whon tho fato of Ireland is to bo BOttlod for at loast ngen erntlon, Irishmen insist upon wasting tholr onerglos and tholr resouroos in fratricidal quarrols, thoy cannot oxpoct much assist ance from tho Unitod States. It is, how ovor, possible to raise a fund to bo distrib uted by an impartial commlttoo in thoso districts whoro only ono Nationalist candi dato Is opposed to a Unionist, and whoro any division of tho Nationalist vote would irupoiil a Beat. Thoro nro many such seats in Ulster, und thoro aro probably soma in Lolnster. Tho vory azlstonco of such n fund In tho hands of portions unlvoi bally trusted nnd reapeetod, would havo tho offoct of mlnlmklugdlB8onslonln thoso qunrtoia whero It could do most harm. A powerful and salutary inlluonco might bo cxertod In this way by the Americans who in 1BS0 collected tho Irish Parlla meiiUiy fund. Tholr rofual to fan tho llnrao of faction, and the promlum which thoy would offor on patrtotlo oooperatlon nnd good sonso, would at this momentous Juncture boot great bonoflt to Ireland. Will not such mouasEcaENEKiLLT nnd Joseph J.O'Donohub rnovo promptly in this mat tor ? It w ould bo dlflloult to ovorostlmato the ofTectof their Intot position at this time. A fund of sumo thirty thousaud dollats for warded ton commlttoo consisting of suoh men as ArchblBhop Choke, Mr. T. P, O'Con noil and Mr. John E. Ueduond, and dis tributed lu thoso districts whoro only ono kaaaaaaaaaaaaaamsaakakaBakakaB Nationalist Is nominated, would probably avail to eavo ovory Boot in Ulster which was carried for homo rulo In 18S0.

"And whoro Is thy camel 1" asked tho prophet " I loft hlra wan dorliig outsldo tlio city, in the kooping of Allah." replied tho devout pilgrim. "Go, tio him up." crlud tho rrophot; "tio hlra firmly to tho post, well guiirdodacnlnstthounbcllevers, andthonhocauBufolrbe loft In the keeping of Aii.ah."

Tnnprophot meant to glvo all true believers to understand that thuy must adopt all means of guarding their camel (or.

Talmor ot Illinois, who is so strong a Clevoland man as to rcnounoe his own chances for tho nomination in favor of the ex-President, takes the occasion of his doo laratlon of alloglano as an elTeotlvo opportu nity to deprecate the attack on BenatorHlll being made by cortaln factions of the Democ racy. IIo says: "I have found Senator Hill to bo a vory oourteous. courageous, and good man. I fear he has been misrepresented to a portion of tho party, and I do not bcllovo that any Domoorat of his prorolnonca should be hounded by any olemontor faction." Eory truo Democrat should say Amen to this uttoranco ot Illinois' old Neman. David D. Hill hns desorved too woll of his party to be mado tho victim ot factional spite nnd malig nity. During tho past four yoars ho has so ef fectually wrostod tho Emplro BtaU from tho crasp of Itopubllcanlsm as to make it safely Domocrntlo this year In tho national oontest, no mnttor who may be tho party's standard bearer. For this sorv lco shall his own patty execrate and donounco him? Ho has given the Dcmocraara Domocrntlo majority in tho Now York Legislature a Democratic Sonator from that fatate. and a Domocratio suoccssor to. himself ns Governor. Are thoso accomp lishments responsible for the unreasoning nnlmoslty exhibited toward him hy certain elements In tho party for which ha has so ef fectively ltiborod? Ambition may bo "a crlovous fault." but It can hardly bo urgod against Senator Hill to tho exclusion of tho othor gontlomon whoso booniB nro bolng assiduously cultivated at Chicago. Thoy aro all ambitions, and to bo not so woro to declare that tho Presidency of this great country Is nn honor not worth strlv ingfor. David 11. Hill may not-probably will not-bn nomlnatod ot Chicago; but the Uhbe predicts thatdurlng tho ensuing oatnpalgn ho will mako tho light of his llfo in behalf of whomsoever thn nominoo may bo.
