SPEECH OF GOVERNOR NOYES, AT ATHENS, OHIO, SATURDAY, AUGUST, 23rd, 1873. The political canvass of 1873, in Ohio, was formally opened at Athens, on the 23rd nit. Speeches were made by Gov, Morton, of Indiana, and Gov. Noyes, of this State. The meeting was a largo one about 5,000 persons being present. As Gov. Noyes discusses questions of State as well as of national concern, we take it for granted that most of our readers will be interested in his speech We copy from the Cincinnati Gazette. the following extracts: RAILROADS AND THE FARMERS. There is a wide-spread feeling existing throuuhout the West and North-West aniontr the producing masses that rail ro.'ia corporations, by the consolidation of capital, by the combinations of man aginient and the centralization of uu tliority, are exercising for their own nd vantage an undue and pernicious infill ence upon the business interests of the country. ' This feeling is less prominent in Ohio than in the great grain growing States further west, for the reason that we are rapidly becoming u manufactur ing State, that we are nearer the great markets and that we have several com 1 toting lines of railroad leading to the East. But there is dissatisfaction among the people of Ohio. From II. V. Poor's Railroad Manual for 1873-4, 1 gatRer the following sum mary of statistics, detailed statements of four hundred and tweuty-five roads being given in that work. leu states mere are- Miles of railway In the Uni 57,823 $3,159,723,H57 55,110 473,24 1,056 8O7,4S0,0H2 1(15.754,3 04.718,151 Cost Ctisl per mile. .. .. Gross recelpls (leriiting expenses Nel enr iinuH Dividends paid.... "Total number of miles in operation 67,104, of which 6,427 were built last year. Some made no returns, others re fuse information. The total earnings are $11,000,000 more than the receipts 111 the L uited States Ireasury, and the net earniiigs,$48,00O,0OO more than the government interest account. 1 he to tal cost is $900,000,00 1 more timri tlie national debt, 'lliirty-three thousand nine hundred and thirty -four miles have been built since 1863." This statement is startlincr, nnd indi cates the power which, by united efforts, could be exerted in our ' State and na tion. It is well known that certain grent railroad combinations have for years controlled tlie legislation of several States in all matters affectine railroad property and the profits" thereof.

Mr. Shel- laoarger 01 ima mate, iniroaucea biich a measure Into - the last'Congress, and when the Ohio Legislature was asked to strengthen his bands by resolutions fa voring the bill, the Uemocrntie members put themselves solidly against it. : liut it raigbi nsppen that congress would fail in this duty, under Influences such as have ' been known heretofore sometimes to affect Congressmen. What then? In such ose, undoubtedly the State Legislatures which granted the charters would have powe' to provide a remedy. It is certainly a matter within the province of the people, to elect such members of the State Legislature and of Congress as can be trusted to do their whole duty, and with intelligence enough to know what hat duty is. If the people themselr.s era careless and indifferent as to'tlfe character of those they elect to represent them, they have no right to complain. One cause of dissatisfaction has been the lack of uniformity in the rates of transportation. JHany railroads are ac customed to transport pnssengers and freight for long distances, between their termini, at a much, less rate , per mile than is charged for intermediate points. The reason is obvious. Between the distant points there is generally compe tition, and consequently cutting of the rates to secure business. The rivalry is often so great as to leave no margin for profits, over and above running ex penses. In order, therefore, to secure dividends for the stockholders, this loss has to be made up by excessive charges for shorter distances, and between Jioints where there are no competing inea. This evil ought to be remedied. But in my judgment, there is a great er wrong than this. 1 mean the little Credit Jlobiher organization, inside the railroad corporations, composed wholly or for the most part of the officers of the company, who under the name of Fast Freight Lines, or t other designa tion, contract with themselves, realize enormous profits, and enrich themselves at the expense of the stockholders or the public, or both. Such organizations ought, if possible, be prohibited bylaw, and the officers of railroad companies should be prevented from speculating out of the trust positions they occupy at the expense of the people who are at their mercy. ' Amon-sthe ways proposed to secure cheap transportation, is the opening up of the great national highways the rivers and the lakes. These being im proved and connected where necessary, bv canals. The improvement of the Ohio and its tributaries is certainly worthv of our efforts. Whether a grand canal, or svstem of water communica tion, reaching to the ocean, would bring us in Ohio a return equal to the cost, has yet to be demonstrated. There should be no indiscriminate and wild crusades against railroads. They should be encouraged and allowed fair compensation for the capital invest ed, and the risk encountered. They have been, and will continue to be, ot incalculable benefit to onr people. 1 iiey should simply not be allowed to abuse their privileges, or to oppress those they were intended to assist. What would the great , State of Ohio have been to da v without the introduction . of. rail roads? ""-We want more nnd we must have them.

The armers and mechanics of Ohio will soon have their own college, open and free to all, where their sons can be educated for lives of usefulness either for the occupations of their fathers, or for any other honor able avocation in life. Ai the mentis of knowledge multiply, we hope and be lieve the standard of intelligence will be elevated, and that prosperity and happi- proportion - to the ness will abound in privileges enjoyed It is gratifying to know that the vsl- ue of funning lauds in Ohio has increas ed more than two hundred per cent, in the last ten years. The value of farm pro ducts amoHnts to UOO,000,000 annually. I see it is estimated that at present one half the amount raised is exported, bringing a return to the farmer of about seven tier cent, on his investment, inclu sive of rent and subsistence. This, to be sure, does not equal the exceptional P'ofits in some other kinds of business, but on the other hand, it is not subject to the risks which always attend upon employments of capital when great re t irns are sometimes realized. I believe the farmers of Ohio are contented and happy. I trust the future has in store for them increased rewards for their la bor, abundant returns for their invest ments, multiplied comforts and unexam pled prosperity. VALUE OF THE FARMING INTREST. The present cash value of the farms of Ohio is set down at 11,054,405, 226; the value of farm implements at (25, 692,787; the wages paid, including the value of board, amount to $16,480,767; theanual value of all farming produc tions is $198,256,907; orchard products, 5,843,079; produce of market gardens, $1,289,272; the number of acres improv ed is 14,469,133; woodland, 6,833.675 acres, unimproved other than woodlai.d, only 359,712 acres. It will be seen that almost our entire State, except the necessary woodbind, is now under cultivation. As 1 before re marked, it will, ere be many years, be necessary to largely increase product ions in order to supply the home de mand. The prospect for our farmers is hopeful and cheering. MATTERS ABOUT WHICH ALL PARTIES AGREE. There are certain matters about which all parties seem to agree. It is agreed that there ought to be rigid economy in the administration of affairs; that tuxes ought to be reduced as much as the cur rent expenses of the government, the interest account, and a reasonable re duction of the public debt will permit; and there should be honesty and efficien cy in every department; that our pub lic lands should be reserved for actual settlers. I refer to these facts and figures not for the purpose of defending or shielding in the slightest degree, those Republicans who, by their influ ence and votes, promoted the back-sal ary iniquity, but only to shoW that it does not lie in the mouths of Democrats or make party capital out of it. All members of both parties who voted for the bill will be held individually re sponsible for their act by the people. i:.:.. 1 ... :i.i fuller political party is repuiiBiuie so long as it disapproves and condemns the scandalous proceeding. The prospect ive increase, notwithstanding the tune was importune, would probably have been borne by the people, but connect ed as it was with the Vilt'k pay provis ion the whole transaction is tainted, and the conventions very properly demaiid the repeal of the whole bill. CREDIT MOBILIES. us a or of as Of the- Credit Mobilier matter, it necessary to say that it was unmitigated swindle to the government, without ex cuse or palliation. The whole thing was corrupt in its inception, and scandalous in its butcome. Some good men who probably meant no evil and intended no wrong, were inveigled into it by design ing rascals, nnd bad men engaged in for persona! gain no doubt, knowing its character fully It is to be hoped that the blasted and ruined reputations which have been the result of the Credit Mo bilier investigation and exposure will be a warning lor the future, so that , Con- - a a , i i gressmen will noreaiter oe siow to eu gage in speculations, regarding matters upon which they may be called to legis late whatever be their character, it certainly a healthy sign of the times that official misconduct meets with such gen eral condemnation among all classes, and conditions of meu. It is the pride of the Republican party, that without fear or favor, it was the tirst to move investigation, and the most persistent pressing inquiry to tlie bitter end. attempted uo concealments, and covered uo man's crimes, but permitted the guil ty to suffer, and itself applied the lush. Its ability and willingness to do this the surest indication that the party still pure, patriotic, and worthy of uonfideuce it has so long enjoyed. came into existence to right the wrongs of millions. It lives to vindicate truth aud justice, to maintain the good cause, to expose and punish corruption aud evil wherever it finds them. There is man so loved and trusted among its lea ders but he will be thrust aside the mo ment he proves recreant to his doty. There is no name so high and honored that will not be blotted out whenever is disgraced.' So long as the' party thus maintains its purity and independence, ... . " . . nv it will continue in power, una : wm crease i usefulness. BACK SALARY. the ac tion, in mOm And there is no difference of opinions as to the character of the legislation, whicl Congressmen uot only increased their future compensation one half, also provided for beek pay at the same rater Both Democratic and Republican platform condemn this actiou iu unmis takable terms; i There. is but one. setiti ineut regardiug it among the people.- A retHjalof the law iademanded.

Would the Republican party then be responsible? Yet they had in the caae supposed a majority of tlie members. Let a now consider fort moment the vote of which the back salary measure became a law.

Southern Seuitiurs aud lueinlier fur the bill It will be noticed that a large portion of the affirmative vote came irom the South, and ihe per centage of Demo crats was very much larger than that of Republicans. Of the Ohio Delegation three out of six Democrats in the House were in favor of the bill, while three out of every thirteen Republicans voted tor it and one of these vigorously oppos ed it till the last moment, and only vo ted for it then to save the appropriation bill to which it was attached, aud for which he was responsible. Not a single Democratic member of Ohio has cov ered his back pay into the Treasury, while in a very .considerable number of the Republican members have already done so. ifi DEMOCRATIC TESTIMONY. it is in It is Judge Van Trump, as you all know an able and conspicuous Democratic member of Congress from this State, in a letter to his constituents, explaining his actiou on the salary bill, says: "I have voted steadily and uniformity against the measure, without hesitation or shadow of turning alttough a major ity of mi, party voted the other way. m m m m m "And yet, as applied to the salary Question alone. I do not speak of it as party capital. As a party question it remains at rest; a majority of the Dem ocrats , if the Southern members can be classed as strict Democrats, voted for it ; without their aid, coupled with the Northern Democrats who united with them, it could not have- been carried." In describing the manner of taking one of the test votes, Judge Van Trump continues; 'This vote was taken amid the wild est .excitement in the HousX. It was manifest from the way in which the vote was running, that the contest would be a close one. After the voting was closed, aud the names were being slow ly read at the desk, by the leading clerk it was ascertained that the question was lost by three or four majority. Then commenced a most ludicrous scene. Five or six members sprung to iheir feet, and changed their votes from the negative to the affirmative, thus turning the majority to two on the other side, and I am sorry to say that the majority of these changing votes came from the Democratic side of the House." Then follows tbe distinguished gen tleman's views of the morality of the whole business, after which ho pro ceeded to draw his back pay w ith the rest "I felt a high and controlling sense of duty in whatever I did from its incep tion to its close.- 1 could not bring my self to feel it to be consistent either with propriety or duty, at the very close of a term of Jongrcss ot two years ny my own vote, to 'put money iu my pu rsc,' against the wil) of my constituents. There was perhaps no man m Congress who needed money more than I did, but I have not yet come to the conclusion to abandon the consoling idea that there yet remains in this world of oars, bad as it is, something which is still better than mouey an approving consceince aud sense of duty honestly are perform ed."
