Ia tho absence of any report of there- taarka made by Judge Kelly at Mobile, before be iras attacked and driven by a tnob, eager for hit blood, from the plat form, ve present copious extracts from his great apeech at New Orleans, delivered CP Saturday.' It is probable that the ipecch be began la Mobile 'did not diffjr much in character and laoguigo from the speech at New Orleans: TUE OPINING ItllfARKS. Fellovycitizcns or L tciaiANA: In response to the invitation of our Govern r. and the Major of this beautiful and growing citj, I am hero to counsel with Loa as to the best interests of our country, ct nis howover, flrat congratulate joa upon jour enfranchisement, and thank the loyal men among you, without regard to raco or color, who, during the late atruggle, braved tbe dangers of battle in defense of the old flag; and you, who quietly remained true to it, amid tho dan pen which surrounded you, and remained true to the country, for the part jou toot in my enfranchisement. Having addresa ed a large and enthusiastio audience in Memphis on Tuesday nijtht, and standing in the midst of this brilliant scene in the city of New Orleans,,! am able to pro claim that at length I am a free man in mj natlvo land, and may traverse its wiJe extent, carrying with me my conscience and convictions without fear of personal violence. ThU was impossible before tho war. The institutions of the South were 'not cosmopolitan. Her peculiar system of labor not only controlled, but ennfract--ed her civilization. Disregarding the prac tico and precepta of the founders of our Government, and ignoring tho admoni tion of experienco, the turned a deaf ear to reason refused to listen to reuton atrance, and finally punished dissent from -her judgment as a crimo deserving out lawry and death. Attempting to maintain that which wan "'peculiar' and incapable of modification, raave bj absolute overthrow, in a progress ive age, in a land of vast and vaiied ro . sources, peopled by a generation.more en- 'terpriaiog that) any that had preceded it, fche arrayed .against herself all tho forces of civilization No poet ever sang the charms of slavery. No limner ever em bodied upon glowing canvas its beauties. No orator ever descanted upon its bless ings. And, though dumb dogs that could not bark proclaimed from many a pulpit the dutj of servants to obey their mas- "4 er 8, as tho sum and subs.anco of the gos pel, the voice of Christianity bade consci entious men '"do unto others as they would . have others do uuto them." and to be eyes to the blind and feet to the lame, and the cries of the wronged against thoso who withheld their hire from tho laborer as--cended incessantly to tho cars of tLe Lord of Sabbath. To this attempt on the part of lhwpco pie of the South to isolate themselves, to exclude from their broad and fertile ter ritory the advancing civilization of the age, may be ascribed the terrible war through which wo have just passed. It made them intensely sectional, while the ateady and rapid development of the North Was demonstrating to ita more rapidly in-' creasing millions the bene See nee of na tionality. It created a separate and an tagonistic sybtem of civilization. The North welcomed all classes of emigrants from all lands. She made herself familiar with the inventions and discoveries of the day, and applied them to purposes of util ity. She challenged the. freest discussion of all topics and all systems. She provid ed liberally for the education of all her people, including the unhappy few to whom, in deference to Southern interests and demands, the denied the full rights of citizenship. JJut the South, wrapt in its delusion, repulsed emigration rejected al) Science and l;teratue that controvert ed the divinity of slavery and the justice 'and cctiomy of uoieq tired toil. He de nied to I.cr laborers education, and could consequently not avail herself of, and was indifferent to, the scientific aud mechani cal progress of the ago. Thus, while the breach between the two sections was wid ening, the disparity io power between them wis constantly increasing. ".Contrast, my friends, the de.clopmcnt of the to sections; behold tho great cities of the Norti; New York, and its environs, which are really, ibough not municipally, part of it, already exceeds Paris in wealth, plendor, trade and population. London and Paris are the only trans-Atlantic cities which exceed Philadelphia in these res jects Boston, Cincinnati. Chicago, and other citief, all exceed New Orleans in population. Yet your beautiful city, past 'which the waters of sixty thousand miles of rivers flow, is the one great city of tho South. THE FIRST DEPARTURE FROM REPUBLICAN PRINCIPLES. .. When the sages of '70 proclaimed that all men are born equal, and are invested by naturo with the right to lite, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, they utter ed the law that was tj fashion the ins i tutions of America, and shape the civili sation of ber people They wero ever true to that law; for they controlled tho States at the time they framed the Con stitution of the United State; and thus every free man, without regard to color, was a roterin every State, even South Carolina. And whilo tho Executive Gov eminent remained in their hands, aud their private influence controlled the leg islation of the country, the free coloredcnter the potts of this State, and incarccr- inin was not denied the right of suffrage under any Territorial Government. Though Sou'h Carolin had steadily de manded her exclusion, from 1778, in the convention for framing articles of Confed eration until that tinio it was not until 1812 that she succeeded in inserting the word "whito" in a law establishing Terri torial Government.

It through which we have inat caused. It involved an attempt to stay the course of American civilization it was in conflict with the crcat truth to which I have al luded: and involved strife between the spirit of liberty and the impulao of the ! manses on one hand, and the grasping selfishness of an oligarchy, and the wrong of slavery on the other. From that time to this, our country has knuwu no peace; and whilo the institutions of the North have been more and more rcpublicanized by tho spitit of democracy; the written law of tho land, yielding to the rcastion ary spiiit which wou its first triumph in the Missouri contest, has been controlled by the spirit of slavery, and been marked by a total disregard of the vital principle of our Government, Our Government rets on two great sentiment! personal liberty and territorial unity. And any law which restrained personal liberty, or engendered, or fostered Sectional Interest, was a necessary causo of discord and atrife. When, therefore, yielding to Southern persuasion orictation, the North con sented to dcprivo the free colored tusn of iu lira go in the Territories; and when, un der tho same influence. State alter State, throughout the free North made color a test of citizenship, until, out of New Kng land, citizens of African descent were ev ery wheve disfranchised; they wero not, as they believed, cementing the Union, but making war inevitable. Uury your troubles, but don't linger about the graveyard conjuring up their ghoata to haunt you. GOD'S ntOVIDEXCE. Nations are not the creatures of chance. God's providence embraces the American continent. His judgment is its , final law. Aud these abandonments of the principles upon which our Government was band which had been reverently accepted by our forefathers, aa in haimony with Ilia will did not pass without his notice. Has lie not repealed all these reactionary statutes, and wiped out by His bre-tli, these modem improvements of State, con stitutions? From thu firing on Sumter, to the surrender of tho armies tf Leo and Johnson, llo was teaching us the terrible baptism of battle aud of blood. How. in finite is His power and justice, aud how easily Ho can make the lolly and madness of man to praise Him. Had the South been national and truly Democratic as the North, and had her legislation been pro gressive, sluvcrj would have gradually dis appeared, and tho colored population of the country been absorbed into its citizen ship without a crisis, and almost without special notice. Hut that was uot to be. TUE SOUTH RESPONSIBLE FOR THE WAR. Still the million of graves, Glied by tbe best and bravest of both sections, are chargeable to the South. It-withdrew the question involved from the forum of diplo macy aud legisljtion, aud submitted it to war's, last, dread arbitrament. To prepare the way for this it had kept tho mass of the people in profound and degrading rgnorauco. U.ich Staio having received largo grants of lauu for educational purpose-), none of them had provided school lor thpeople. Tho . laws of each State prohibited, by pcual statutes, the education oi the slave population. This was inevita ble. Intelligence and-culture are incom patible with slavery; the penalty God attaches to tho crime of holding a brother In bondage, that he who is thus held shall be of Out little value to him who holds him. And aluggish igdoleuce i. like ignorance, the inevitable law of slavery. The absence of schools, the want of gener al fields of employment.degraded the lave holding white of the country, and the most enterprising of them left the land of their birth to find happier homes. Thus the South, who.-e great need, was popula tion to develop htr vast and varied resour ces, build up cities, towns and villages along her great lines of transit, and thus increaso the value of her lands and di miuuh the cost of travel aud .transporta tion, was constantly expelling her own children. Nor did she welcome emigra tion. The German, the Irishman, aud the Scotchman quit the scenes of their child hood und the graves of their fathers in purauil of liberty and a bigler degreo of physical comfort than is accorded the la boiing man in those lauds. In their native homes they- learn that in the North there is political equality for all, and that every fair day'a work done by man, woman, or child, is assured by the law of the land of a fair day'a wages. WHY NORTHERN MEN HAVE OT BEEN 80UTII DEFUDE. Do ynu reproach me and others of tho North that e did not come in those days aud lay these arguments before you?

And, when, what Southern men called tho Sovereign State of Massachusetts, sent one of her ablest and most venerable lawyers to raise tho 3ucstion of law arising out of this con uct, beforo her own court, the pooplo ef Charleston not the roughs, but those who could do such an act with highest courtesy the very pinks of the chivalry of that city, gave that distinguished man, and the accomplished daughter that accompanied accomplished daughter bim, the option of depa mm, tbe option ordeparturo Irora the city iu twenty-four houra or tar and feathers, and jolly rides on rails. Again, -it is known to all the North, though perhaps you may not be a rare of the fact, that the State of Georgia, by solemn act ot ber and to be found among the printed laws this day offered a reward of five or twenty thousand dollars, I forget which, for the body, dead or alive, of a citizen of Massa chusetts, who had never entered that State, or hud been so far South as the capital of his country; but who had the temerity to publish, through the columns of his own paper, hii disbelief in tho divinity of slav ery, and the right of every woman to the possession or the body of every living child that had cost her tho pang of mutcruitv. You treated difleicoco of opinion as tho most heinous or crimes. And from each and all of the Southern States, native citizens, U kid some of them men of just diitinctioo, were driven by thrests of popular violence. Such was the case of the Grimkcs, tf .outh Carolina; Underwood, of Virginia, and of Helper and Professor Hcdrick, of North Carolina, Why did we not come and rca fcon with you? Do you forget that you would not receive, nor permit your neigh bors to receive, through the postoQice, any papers or periodicals that did not pan der to your prejudices.

Tho North would gladly have diatu-sed tho questiou. It opened its publis halls to jour orators, und its people swarmed to hear them. It received your papers, and its conscieutious people were amazed ot tho iulaluation which was driving the two sec tions headlong into war.

You spurned our counsels; and though we would gladly have embraced you as broth eis, you rcfWd to listeu to our fraternal prujers. ADDRESS TO THE WHITES. Permit me now to address a few remarks moro especially to those who have not known as you, the woes of slavery or the cot, sequences of disfranchisements under popular government. Meanwhile, fellow citizens, let mo say to you that you aro charged with a duty grander than is often confided to a generation of men. You are to unite with those whom through life jou have beeu taught to despise as tin inferior race, in organizing a party in Louisiana in harmony with the great llepublicau party of tho North. That part$ is based on, vivified aud cemented by two 6cuti menu love for too Union, and devotion to human freedom. Its whole creed may be summed up in the phrase, perfect and indestructible unity of tho States,' with the perpetual maintenance of the largest Lbcrty of the individual,consisteut with the geucial welfare. If you fail to give full bcope and power to either of tho sesenti ment you will in so far fall short of tho due performance ot your mission, uumico is blind, and knows no color ; and justice is the law of the Kepublicau party. In en franchising our tellow-citixiius of African descent, we must accept them as entitled to all the rights, privileges, aud amenities of citizenship. We must not give a mere intellectual assent to the propositions on which to base our action ; but accept them as animating and controlling sentiments. Rights guaranteed by daily pructiee arc not secured. Established habit is tho only safeguard of personal liberty in our land. Tho Constitution of the United States has guaranteed to every citizen tho rights, privileges, and immunities of citizenship to tho citizens in each Stute in the several States. Hut when, before this war, was I, or men who held opinious in common with me, safe in attempting to exercise that coubtitutional right in any slavo State? As I have shown you, dominant sentiments may . override constitutional and legal provisions, liest not, therefore, your experiment jipou the embodiment io constitution or law, of abstract principles ; but see tu it that they are embodied practically in the organization cf primary caucus ai d convention, aud ultimate or jiii 'tion of city, parish, and State. If you rise to tho prompt accomplishment of this great work, th day of strife wil! have passed, aud tho American sword may ! be beaten into a plowhare.

Ill II I II I III III Doea Farming in Iowa Pay? j This question naturally su.csis itself. very earnestly to all who may be tempted to leave tbo farming fields of other atates and enter upon agricultural enterprises in this. To a person here, where one can ire the question answered on every side, the intf irogation would be useless, for he daily meets with men who enme to Iowa, poor but arc now tho nobleman of tho country and the controllers if its govern ment, i There aro thousands of instances of this character which would best illus trate our declaration had we the rpnee to mention them. And so superior are the advafitagea presented ly our country for agricultural pursuits, thut men of observa tion who had hitherto followed other busi ness have been fur-sighted enough to see that all that was needed to insure the re alization of hand.onie fortunes was (1) the confidence to embark iu farming, and (2) the necessary energy to' carry the enter prise through without faltering. Farming among rugged hills and atony fields is different from following a plow through a glebe where it will ran from tho tinio it comes from the shop until it is worn out, without striking a atone nnduore than all, there's a difference in farmiug where one matt can raise an eighty-acre crop by himself, and whcio ho can raise only tcu; and find a poor harvest even in that, 'hen wo know many mou whoso experi ence fur the last ten years has shown what cun be done, wo take a single instance, of a well known gentleman in this State, which will show tho truthfulness of our remarks in a convincing manner. Iu the last issue of the Ccdcr Fulls Gazette we sec the following extract : 'Personal .We received a call last Thursday Horn Senator C, F. Clarkson, of Grundy Jo., one of lowaV best and most . l r J . V 1 1 f ' 1 practical larmers, ana wuu an a urm menu and well wisher of tho prosperity of, (Jeder Falls. Mr. Clarkson is an old printer by profession, ond publisher of a paper for twenty five years In Indiana. The same energy which marked his success as an editor seems to have followed him to the rural districts of Iown. His farm now contains C IO ocrcs.and his sales of produce the past year will amount to 510,000.' From intimate personal acquaintance with Air. Clarkson. we are enabled to tell how he couuenced and how ho is at pres ent situated. In 1656 he left tho publish ing business in Drookville, Indiana, and with a moderate capital came to Iowa, and invested in laud in Grundy county. lie commenced his present farm of C-1U acres by pitching a muslin tent on the center of it, and in which he lived with his family until he constructed a frame house. Ho immediately started in his "breaking teams," and put out what he called a crop of"bod"corn Btid succeeded in plant ing over two hundred acres in this manner. This was fenced only by- constant watch ing, but when the harvest came, tho corn wus sold for lumber which pui a fence around the entire farm in to protect the next season's crop. .The following season saw more improvements, and tho plow was kept moving until over 400 acres put in annual crops, and until their return had made their owner abundantly able to build him a splendid residence, the finest and largest barn in the State, and mako other improvements correspondingly. Tho fig urea in the extract above shows what this farm brought its proprietor last year in produce ulone. Other Bourccs of iocome, such as fctock-growiug and speculation will incrca-e this incomo at least ono half. IhciC figures spctk for themselves, aud need no comment from us.

Union Soldiers ,on tho Police. The decided action of General Sheridan, annulling the proscriptive legislation of this State against Union soldiers as mem bers of tho city police force, und directing Major Heath to adjust tbe presort force so that at least one-half of it Lall be com posed of tboe who were intended to be proscribed, has been ganrrally received with satisfaction . by tho Uniou men of New Orleans. There has not been a rogo Islion of any kind promulgated in this city for months that hadso great a tenden cy to elevate the hopes of the tried friends of National unity. It was said to. bef juit the thing juM, in that it gave no prefer ence to any,' but merely insisted that thoe who fought for the Union khould bo at least ou an equality with those who fought against it. While the tone of this order is decided enough to plessceverybody, still it does not run into tho delusiveness so long and invariably practiced by the par ties lately iii power. Tho only liu.lt. in this order, that we can discover, on the action of the Mayor, is tho requirement of a two years' residence, and that at least ono halfot the force "shall be composed of cx-Uuion folJieis." Mayor Heath can make the wholes force, from the chief down of cx-Union soldiers if he chooses to do so. How far he will go beyond tho even di vision, we can not say. . At any rato. the one-half that is already assured is enough in itself to cause the heart of every Union man here to feel light, and to turn toward Genera! Sheridan with renewed confidence. With the men on guard iu this city, who have so often stood on guard on the battle field, wheu tho right and-libcrties of tho nation were at-take, the peace of-the city will be assured; and wc may soon look for a marked decline in the prevailing rowdy ism and numerous personal outrages that have recently been committed duily.jY-te Olhailt litpuhliiMH.
