Ho says that ho wanta to stand before tho Convention upon this proposition to renew the rebellion. He did go befor the Convention upon that proposition, and ho was nominated on the firt ballot, whilo Horitio Heymotir, I believe, was not nom inated under somo twenty-five or thirty ballots, Here is the direct proposition, lie is to be nominated, if at all, upon tho proposition to overturn theso Statu Gov ernments by military force; agiln to bring wir upon us.

The Dümoorscy in that con ventlon submitted to them with tho same facility that they hid always dono, and I now ask my friends who were the Demo cratic delegates in that convention from tha South. They were not tho men who hud been tho Union men during tho war; bu they were tho men who bad command ed tho rebel armies, and filled tho rebel Congress, and been Senator and Repre sentatives; these were the men who cime to that convention and represented tho Detnocratlo parly, and mado the nominn lions. Now, my friend, allow me to call snur attention vory briefly to what would ho tbo inevitable conRtqoences of tho suc cess of tho DotiiQcrntio party in the op. proachin election. One of the first con- sequences would bo the elevation of tlie rebel soldier to the snme platform nccu plod by tho Union soldier. In this Con vention you flndtbo rebel and tho North rrt Democrat atandin? on tho am plat form exactly; you find tho most influen tial men of that Convention to have been rebel ofliccri, and nooo wn. tnoro Influen tial than Gen. Forrest, of Memphis, tho butcher, who hod colored soldiers and oven childriii) murdered In cold blood af ter they hod surrendered; but jet this man waa received into fellowship Io the Demoeratlo Convention, and no voice was more powerful there than hi. If you bring this Dcmooratia party into power, the rebel soldier mint bo pensioned like tho Union soldier, hi widow and hi or phan must bo provided for at wo provide for tbe widow and the orphan of tW Un- 1 a a a loo souiior. iiiey mini o ptaccit upon tho s'ime level, for I nk you if the rebol of the South get into power through the medium of tho Democratic party, will thoy consent to tnx themselves in corr.inon with the nation to psy pensions to Union obliors, whilo theirs are unprovided for? Nevor. That ii against human nature; and tho first thinr they will do when they shall ooioe into powor by the olection of ; Seymour and the Demoeratlo ticket, will bo to plac tho rebel soldier in every re- snect ii nun tha mim lavnl with ihn Union soldiers, and their widows and orphans, md all who arc pensioned. Another in - .ti vitahl conaequeoce of the succesH orthe Democratic party will be the repudiation of the National Debt Tbo Democratic party baa no position or status upon the subject Of the National Debt', es.cepttare t.ii.tiatitin.

And now I want to kuow if there ia a mail stupid enough to bulieve that tho Southern rebels, when they atull oooie ! into power through tho medium of the Ddtuocratlo party, will tax thoinsetvea along with the body of tha nslioti to pay our debt, either prtuclpul or inirei. Vju.. 'I1 I. A.... mM It l tl.

Another coneuonoo of tho coming into power of tho Dumocratic party, and of the ovci turning of thoso loyal State govern ment that we have built up in the South, will bu tho restoration of slavery, 1 did not think so a year ago. 1 thought; come what might, they never coilJ restore slavery. I do not think so uow. I think if jou givo them the power they will re turn the colored people to slavery. Let tho iit overturn thorn State government down thoro and they will dUartn . thu ne gro population. Thoy are all armed themauhe. and then, willi -the sanction and approbation of Seymour, and all tho Dem ocratio politicians of the North, they will, by military power, return the coloied people to slavery. That would be euoth or inevitable remit of a success of thu Dmuocrutio party. Now my friend, we hoar a good deal "l'0!1 tU ue. My . I i I I at . it I . Ah . 1 A., i I., .i . ii.i i tli.

Ah, thero i on enswer to that. It was by one of those trloks that often occur iu Dctnooiutio convontiotis thatChief Justlco Cbaa was prevented from being tho Democratic candidate for President, and, but for thi trick, my distinguUhod colleague would now be sUuding upon a platform of univoraal suifrugo. It is woll known that Judge Ctuio, who for twenty-live years, bu been the udvocuto of colored suifrao, who may almost bo auid to be tho father ofthat doctrine, that all the arrangements wcro made for his nomination, as tho candi date of tho Democratic party. It is said that at tho very time that Mr. Seymour's uaiuo wa brought forwatd in the oonvuutiou, that ho had arisen for tho purpose of proposing tho uamoof Chase, aud it is certaiu that such an arrange ment bad boeu mado. I only refer to this to show that it is a tnero appeal for tho purpose of seouriui Votes, und that Detuoctatio politicians are prepared to tnke a negro suffrago candidate, a candidate professing any kind of views, if ho oan oulv bring them iuto tho niovmeut of political power, 1 No", u' f"ods, SJ WW my collest-ne had a mm I ii I. ii i ii i i good deal to say last niht. as I see by reading his speech, that we had proposed In the Senate, by a bill, to eend orma to those governments that wo have just ereo ted in the Southern States. ' Ah! an wa did Tt ha hspn tha nrtJIe of the Government ever since ita forma- tion to send arms to the States from to time, even in peacr;-ai nd there was a' lirh T nt.l ' bill brought forward, for ,nd spoke, to send arms to the seversl Ststca. ceording to their population, giv ing one thousand for every member of a . fjonpres and Senator. These , arms are not needed now in tbe Slate of Indiana, hut tbey are needed by thes loyal S'ate Gnverment In the South. These new Statt y overnmenta luve no arms: tiCTT- a nule mucker In tbe arsenal; not a single dollur in lh freifury to buy arms, and aUrrinndcl by a rebel population thut is urni'd to the teeth, und this rebel pnpula tion is lnvlld to rebellion by the Demo rrs'ic party of tho North, and that party has just plnced a candidate In nomination por, -n CIprfsB proposition thst these governments ahall he overturned by force; tn(j ..ftf. wicn we propra to send them ritii Vr le plaice l In tlis Tian.1 of lawful militia a irreat outcry is raised in ho North. It i contended that thes loyal gnvernme nts ahall be left unprotected to the lender mfrclra of a hostile, armed rebel populstion by which they are sur rounded. I am sorry to say that that li:i did not pns tho House. It ought to have passed. I merely refiT to it because of an attempt to prrjudlre the people of tho North in regard to the character of the bill. Mr col!ratrue took oosalnn to refer to mo several lime last night, to which I do not t a'l ribect. Hut be will therefore, excise me If I fake tho liberty of refer ring to him, and lo some of the opinions he haa expressed. And first, I will say he haa unintentionally, no doubt, done me Injustice upon one question, in regard to th qnestW n of the currency, and I want to mike a genoril remark here bo fore I come to thut thst white tho Demo eratlo psrty haa no status or position upon tho suhj.iotof ti e national debt, but that of repudiation, it also haa no status or position upon the autjspt of tho currency except Its extreme Inflation, under the pretence of piling tho national debt, so tint tho greenback shall become ao nu merous that they will not be worth tho paper they are prints 1 on. I will thank my friend to read some remarks from tho speech of Mr. Hendrlcka on this subject: "In a speech delivered at Cotumhua, Ohio, on 27th day of August, 1FC7. Oov. ernnr Morton spoke of the proposition to piy tho bond in greenback "the Muck chsnnelof repndhtion" "the blick cloud of repudiAilonM "charged with the livid lightnings of dishonor and destruction." and as weak devif of tho fnfmv bv which they approach direct repudiation.1' All this Is an entire mistake. In nn speech did T ever tke this position.

Ho would issue enough to pay the debt and stop the gold interest. Why. my fiiendi. tbia is all Hrtck Pomeroy asks this is all Vallaudigham ask this i mora than Mr. Pendleton now dares to demand. It would mret tho views of the extreme inon of his party; but thero Is something el-e whieh I would ask my mend to rciu: 'I would not bo understood as being a . a 0) in tavor ot an Increase ol the currency, without limit.

Now, can any man tell no upon which aido ofthat great question tha distinguished Senator standi-? lie will have to make another speech in order to define hie position poo that question. Laughter. I will aak , tuy friend to- read on about tho banks. "The system of nstioosl banks was a stupendous folly. Th security of 'tbe bill holder is in tha bonds on deposit in lh Treasury, upon which tho United States psy interest. If the Government furnishes tbo security in its own credit, why not issue tbe Treasury nolo directly, and thus auvo tho interest? In supplant ing the system, but one evil is to bo guarded against. It ia suld the loans of tho bonks to the business men of the country amount to about tGUO.OtlO.OlX,, and in Ihia State to 812,0uU,UU. To compil the banks at once to withdraw tholr loans would be ruinous. Tbe sub stitutlon'utust be so itisdo aa to avoid a financial and busincno crisis,' ' Now, the distinguished Senator tVglns by saying that tho National hanking ays tetu what a motitrosity that it was a fraud upon the people. II goes ss far on the question as the most ultra and batik roan . . ... .. could ask htm to go, iot he does net ton there. On tho other hand he says that it muM be borne In mind that theso bants hsre got out $GßO,t00 000 of discounts; thst they have loaned to the people of In diana not less thsn ei2.000.OU0; and he goes on to ssy thst it would be ruinous now to disturb "Ibo bank,' though Ibey were tnontro'tiioo io me orginnmp a fraud and a wrong upou the poooto. Yet, now he argues that thoy have becoui so conneoted with the business of tho coun try that they could not be disturbed with out ruin to our commercial relations. Now, I will ask any friend I will ssk anybody to tell upon which aide of the bank question the 'distinguished Senator stands. fLaugbterl His position on those two questions somewhat reminds me of a story I once heard about a lawyer who went out in the country to appear before a J ustice of tho Peuco in a case where the right of properly in a certain calf was to be tried. The opposing coun sel was absent, and tho Justice did not like to go on with tho cos without tbe other lawyer wss there; but tha Iswyer Inst did go out propoaod to obvitato that difficulty by promUing to argue tha case on both sides flrly. Laughter And after he had dine so tho justice solemnlv declared that Lo cou'd not tell whoso ouli it was. Now, my friends, upon tho currency question, let us look for a few moment at the attitude of . tbo Democratic party Who Is Horatio Seymour? Tho advocate of the bonds being paid in gold Within ten day before his nomination be made a speech In ('ooper'o Institute, lit .tha city of New York, in which bo argued that the bonds were payable in gold, and that the first duty of the ficvernment was to return to spei-ic payments by making tho green back as good ss gold, And yet this man, with hi acknowledged opinions, is rlaced upon a platform declaring that the bonds am payable In greenbacks not only In fhe old j reenhaeka that were made during the war wo luve DUGS 000 OOD of them T)00.. O0O.00O of them woro Issued before any of those bond wem ssusd-the .other $05,000,000 wer Issued cote mporaneous ly with the Issue of the first bonds but the Democratic platform warranta the payment of tho bonds, not only in the old but hi new greenbacks that tnny be made for that purpose - that may be IsMird ailtibitinn until they shall become worth less, and, until not only the currency bu the bonds themselves, shiill hive beet, destroyed. This man, with bis Inowt. opinions, but recently expressed, was thus Disced unon thta platform, which was drawn to meet tho known views cf Mr. Pendleton I ask those who tak an In- tcrc't In these qtientiona what kind of confidence ihey can place In a candidate or in a phitform that is thus mado to de ceive? Somebody I to be cheated. Those who bflieve in paying the bonds In gold aro Invited to vote ibe Demoeratlo ttcet becnuso of . Mr. Seymour's p.tihriplc Thoso who belle vo in paylnj the bonds in greenback ore invited-to vo'o tbo ticket becuuo of tho platform, It Is foimml to deceive It ia intended lo limit the peo ple, but I do not believe It will. In one thing I nsrre with Frank Hlsir lint the greenback question, tho bond question, is now comparatively unimportant. IIo saya the great question, overshadowing" every. thing else, ia tbe question of dcatro)ln. by military power, the new governments that have teen built In the South. It i the question of renewing ibe rebellion. I httvo not seen Mr. Toombs' speech but I am Informed, .bis evening, by a pentte man who bus read it, thst it tnakea tbe declaration in GcoruU that Mr. Frank Itluir was nominated on account of that letter. Now whom have wo on cor sld. We bavo Gencrul Grant, tho greatest military man of the ;e, who by his gigantic com bination and his profound olan. succeed d iu destroying the rebellion; after- Me Clellan and others had failed, lie baa been greatly successful In war beyond all men of his time, but tie uow most ardent ly dcaires peace. A roan of great good senie, calm, uiitmpueoioned,' unexclted; a man who earnestly desires peace and who ia conservative, not In the ' Democratic senso, bnt in the true cnso of that word: a man who will muk av safe President1, lie has no military ambition t t'tiitif'v.
