THE BOYS IN LINE. A BATTLING MEETING. AND A FOKKTA8TB UFA LIVELY CAM PAIGN. Speecbes by J. C. McAIarney, of Harrlsburp, HDd Edgar 91. Levan, et Reading. The Democratic meeting advertised te be beld at the Central headquarters last evening, came off according te announce ment, save that the immensity of the throng which assembled completely pre cluded the holding of it in any less space than the square. About 7:43 p. m. the Eighth ward club, mere than 150 strong, marched down from the "hill" andwere seen joined at the headquarters by representatives from the inside wards who had gathered there. At Schiller hall the Sixth Ward Americas club, consolidated, held a business meeting and elected Cel. Edw. McGovern president and It. II. Brubakcr treasurer, and all the former vice presidents, sccrctaiics and ether officers of the former two clubs corresponding officers of the consolidated club, Gee. W. Zcchcr, It. H. Brubakcr and Geerge B. Willson were appointed a committee ou finauce and equipments. The meeting then adjourned and the mem bers of the Hancock Legien, who were pres ent, denned their white linen hats, badges and canes, and forming in line, accompanied the club te the street, where they were met by the Ninth ward club, headed by Krcider's drum crops, and the whole precession moved te the square. It was seen found impracticable te held the meeting in the Mishler court, owing te the large audience, and the speakers' stand was carried out into the square and located at the southeast corner of the monument, when the glee club, composed of about a dozen singers, under the leadership of Gee. Pentz, sang a stirring political ballad, which was greeted with cheers, and Mr. Ilensel introduced Jes. C. McAIarney, esq., of Harrisburg, as the first speaker of the evening. Mr. McAIarney, who is a member of the Dauphin county bar and was oue of the counsel for the prosecution of the riot bill bribers, opened with a reference te the prevailing enthusiasm in the party which is a certain augur of victory. The spirit displayed te-night animates Democrats everywhere this year and is certain te be crowned with victory. He entered upon a rigorous and scathing review of Garfield as a public official, analyzing his connec tion with the Credit Mebilicr business, bis evasion, his perjury, his condemnation by a committee of his own party and by Re publican newspapers throughout the land. His complications in the De Geylcr bribery case were quite as bad if net worse. It was manifest that he was paid a $5,000 fee te secure his influence for a worthless job and that it was only as chairman of the committee en appropriations that he was retained. This was legally established in a suit in which Emery Sterrs, who was brought te Philadelphia lately te speak for him, was counsel. On protection and the tariff Garfield's course is evasive and one of duplicity. He has two faces, and though at heart a frce trader has net the manliness te avow his convictions new and lets his supporters proclaim the recent discovery that he is a tariff man. In short he is a trimmer, though he docs net seem te have the sense te even trim successfully and adroitly. Turning te Hancock the speaker exhib ited in glowing colors his civil and mili tary record. Nature had marked him with a handsome face and figure, but his actions did net belie his leeks. He was as geed as he was geed looking. His letter te Sherman, his Peace letter, order Ne. 40, his letter of acceptance, and ether state papers, mark the ripe publisist, the pro found student of our institutions and of fundamental questions. As a soldier he wen and was entitled te his country's grat itude, and it will say te him: "Ge higher." The fight of the people te-day is against thieves in entrenched power in Harrisburg and Washington. Our state had been shamed by the legislative bribery attend ing and attempted in the riot less bill. The chief offenders were convicted and sen tenced te prison, thanks te the indomita ble courage of that gallant young Repub lican, Charles S.Welfe, whose name should be a household word in the common wealth. The jail doers bad hardly closed en them until they were pardoned in vio lation of all rules and decency by a Repub lican pardon beard. They pardoned Eem ble, but they refused te pardon a boy sent te jail for six months for stealing a chicken. The chief clamor against the Democracy of te-day is from renegades like Cessna, who was trying te get the Democratic nomination for governor when Hancock was fighting the battles of his country. At the conclusion of his exhaustive, com prehensive speech of nearly an hour, Mr. McAIarney predicted a sweeping victory in Indiaua, and reaching from one end of the land te the ether. He was heartily cheered. A Bey Frem Old Berks. The glee club then sang another song which was rapturously applauded, and Mr. Stcinmctz in a few well chosen remarks introduced Edgar M. Lcvan, esq., a repres entative of the Jcficrsenian Democracy of Berks county.. Mr. Levan, a rising young lawyer of the Reading bar, who was the second highest candidate for district attorney at the late county convention, opened with an elo quent reference te the prevailing popular enthusiasm for the Democratic nominees and predicted that the wave of popular revolution sweeping the country would carry the Republican party forever out of sight. Fer that party is a party of exped iency, temporizing and evanescent. The Democratic is the the only truly national party, founded in the necessities of our iusti tut ions and continuing amid all vicissitudes against the opposition alike of Federalists, Whigs, Silver Grays, Weely Heads, Knew Nothings and Republicans. The Demo cratic party went down in I860, because it probably ought te have gonedewn ; it will corae up this year because the needs of the country will restore it te power. The Seuth believed they were right because the government was technically a union, net a nation. The Webstcrian idea pre vailed and no man seeks te reopen or set aside the verdict of the war. The Demo Deme Demo cratie party has done all it could de te make this plain in the nomination of Han cock, but he and it meet with the same abuse as when the Democracy nominated McClellan, the great soldier in 1864, the spotless statesman Seymour in 1868, then old time opponent Greeley in 1872, or the great ring breaker in 1876. The Democratic party believes in states rights, but only in such rights as the con stitutien says were net surrendered bytne states te the general government. It does net believe in wiping out state lines and destroying home rule. It does net believe in a paternal government nor in the des truction of local self-government. When either the cetrifugal or centripetal forces assert themselves unduly, disaster ensues. The rebellion was an excess of centrifugal power, the measures of reconstruction tended toward the ether extreme. The predominance of the centripetal will lead te monarchy or oligarchy. The only pro tection against this is Democracy. And this idea will win. The Democracy arc te be rc-intrustcd with power. The revolution may reach every New England state save Vermont, and that state an enthusiastic Republican had bet a Miller ite that the Lord would net "carry" when He came in His fullness. Amid memories of Gettysburg Mr. Lcvan bade the townspeople of the gallant fallen Reynolds remember the conduct of Hancock en that tragic day when Pickett's forces made their wild charge and yet the day was saved because of Hancock's splen did example before his men. Gettysburg numbered 3S per cent, of all engaged in its casualties, while Gravclette, Europe's bloodiest battle-field, numbered only 18 per cent. Of the three great heroes of the day Hancock alene survives, and te him the grateful people of eastern Pennsylva nia would net deny the new honors which are te be heaped upon him. The people of the country are for the Democratic party because it is the party of the natieli and net a sectional ene. It believes the people of this country are of one bleed, ene tongue, one birth aud one idea. They want no separation of senti ment nor of interest any mere than they wanted a separation of the states, and for that reason they are going te have a re united country under an honest party with the heroic soldier, the far-sighted states men, as its head. Mr. Lcvan' s spirited and eloquent ad dress evoked hearty applause, and at its conclusion he was greeted with rounds of cheers. The glee club sang another song, after which Gee. Pentz gave the boys one of his own, and when he was done there was a very large crowd present eager te hear mera. W. U. Henscl, esq., made a short speech, and the meeting adjourned te the club rooms, where another was hastily extemporized. The Glee club kept en singing, Jehn A. Ceylc, esq., made a speech, and at a late hour and amid many demonstrations of enthusiasm the meeting adjourned. m m Itcmiuisccnccs of Wheat laud. The Portrait Painter of Buchanan and Hancock. In 185G W. E. McMastcr visited this city and painted a portrait of Hen. James Buchanan, then the Democratic candidate for president. New he is at Governer's Island, New Yerk, painting Hancock's portrait, aud in a letter of interesting rem iniscences te Colonel Ferney, he says: Just twenty-four years age I visited Wheatland, near Laucastcr, in Pennsylva nia, aud spent a month at the rural home of the last Democratic president, painting the portrait of James Buchanan. Artists who are houeicd with the companionship of great men are apt te recall these gen ial hours as the halcyon period of their professional lives. But my stay at Wheatland was net confined exclusively te the "sittings" of Mr. Buchanan. Miss Harriet Lane, his accomplished niece, pre sided ever his household, as she had when her uncle represented this country at the court of St. James. I new recall with pleasure these golden days of my life, aud theso which followed through the succeeding four years ; when this gifted Queen of American society, dispensed the honors of the presidential mansion at Washington. I can better new than Idid then understand the charm of Miss Lane's fascinating manners. She possessed the power te please all equally, and when I once asked her uncle the secret of this rare accomplishment, Mr. Buchanan re plied that she had been educated among gentlemen ! The portrait progressed, and glass of Madeira went round, and Buch anan was elected. Anether friend of the sage of Wheatland comes vividly te my recollection. I refer my dear sir, te you then in the early prime of your talents and manhood ; the favorite leader of a great party, and chair man of the Democratic state central com mittee of Pennsylvania in 1836. Your visits te Wheatland were almost daily, and there right under my eye, I saw you, the energetic young war-horse of Democracy, in consultation with our candidate ; plan ning aud developing the canvass. Like a heroic chieftain at the head of his column, I saw you all along the line, in the thick est of the fight. Like Hancock at Gettys burg, always at the front when a decisive blew was te be struck, te turn back the invader, which you did in that canvass and saved Pennsylvania from the Abolition and Knew-Nothing cohorts who threatened the republic. Many a time I heard Mr. Buchanan bear testimony, as I have Governer Dickinsen aud Mr. Jehn Yan Burcn, that " te Col onel Ferney we were indebted for the Democratic electoral vete of Pennsylva nia." That fact has lest nothing with years. We'rcgarded you then in the light of the political son of Mr. Buchanan, who had given him the best years of your life, and new you come te the standard of Han cock. Through the dim vista of theso twenty four years, in which you and the writer have been at times at political antipodes, I ask myself, new that we again stand to gether for the election of another distin guished son of Pennsylvania, has the Prodi gal returned, or have we gene te the Prodi gal? Again it is my pleasure te enroll myself in the canvass, and become the campaign artist of General Hancock, and te work with my best energies te secure his elec tion. It was aglorieus reunion when I saw you welcomed at Governer's Island, at the time I was engaged upon my portrait of the general, and I bear testimony that your accession te Democratic ranks is highly prized. I hope I shall be forgiven for alluding te you as the Prodigal. Yeu de net return alone and dd get come back empty. Le gions are flecking te our ranks. They ceme as the winds come frce ! and from all classes and conditions of our citizens. Yeu ceme with a ripe experience and rich in political law, as scholar, editor and ora tor, te threw your talents into the scale with tremendous and telling force. Among the welcome visitors at Govcr Gevcr Govcr erner's Island, none were mere welcome than the old-time friend of Buchanan, the successful leader of a campaign which made a president, LANCASTER, PA., SATURDAY, Your graceful pen, which gives us in your "Life of General Hanceck'rthce glori ous sketches of the wives of our presidents and tbe ladies who adorned society, adds another jewel te your wealth in your sketch of the gifted and accomplished Mrs. Hancock, the wife of our distinguish ed general. The Democratic party proudly welcomes all te reunion in its ranks who still cherish the indestructi ble principles of its founders, Wash ingten, Jeffersen and Jacksen. When principj are sacrificed with men like General Grant te make room for such a Credit Mebilier harlequin as Garfield, we readily cenceive why men like yourself naturally cravitate te the ranks of Gen eral Hancock. At Governer's Island, as at Wheatland, I find the same union and har meny of principle, and 1 find tbe same Catherine together again of heroic and conservative men. The nomination of General Hancock is regarded in New Yerk as the very best which could be made. It has already healed all our political dissen siens, and we feel as proud or our candi date, ever at the sea-girt isle where we can almost shake hands with him, as you, my dear colonel, de down in Pennsylvania, where you have the proud honor te claim him by birthright. The cycle of then and new draws te its completion. Buchanan in 1836 and Han cock in 1880 the last, and the next presi dent Wheatland and Governer's Island Colonel Ferney the friend of and sup porter of both, giving his heroic services new as then. M.
