A quirt, oneventful life was mine until I left the shrlrer of my fathv.'s roof in G.r ham, and accepted the desk of bonk keeper in tne wholesale clothme estat Imlitnent of Shears t Prescutt, in the busy little city of u eston. But there one fine sfternoon in October. just in the midst of Indian summer, I invi ted Lillie l'rescott, with whom I was very neaily in love, to Walk to the path with me. Her little hand in its delicate primrose- colored gl , retted on my srm. her black eyes were lilted to my face, I felt particu larly tender and confidential, and at peace with air the wi rid. We were speaking of the f rge osness of the distant bills, clothed as tbey were in tbetr mantles of crimson foliaiie, when I was brought to a stop by hearing my nsuie pr nounced in a tone neither sweet nor agreeable. "Mr. Smith, I'll just troulle yoo to stop a minnit ! I looked np. A woman of fi'ty or there abouts, effectually blocked up the sidewalk before us. her proportions were colossal. If ever I bsve seen the personification of indi(tnntion,I saw it io her expressive coun tenance. Madam !" I ezclaimrd, retreating a lit tle from the battery of flashing eyes which ste brought to brar uf on w. "Yoo needn't madam me," cried ehe, waging redder.

"Do you dare to deny it T" cried she in a rsee. "Yes, forever and a day afterward !" I roared out. ''Do you tbiok I would marry an old torroagatit like you? I'd sooner wed my grandmother ! ' I saw the fire flash up in her eyes. The widow was waxing dangerous. I dodged the reticule she aimed at my bead, and fell over backward as she charged upon me with ber half mourning varasol. Mies Lil lie turned and fled. I (bought discretion the better part of valor, so I leaped over a garden fence near at hand, and was imme diately attacked by a large watch dog that sprung out of a kennel near by, I seised a dahlia role, and, burling it at the belli gerent, made good my escape by fording a duck pond and teacbiog the next street. from which I hurried home at the best pace I could command. I resolved tost I would not remain in Weston a day longer. Evidently there was in the city tome other Richard Smith for whose notorious sslf I was mistaken. I penned a hasty note to my employers giving my reasons fur leaving them pack ed my trunks, paid my board, and marking my baggage. "Hicha'd Smith, New Hampton," I entered the care for the locality specified on my trunk. In selecting New LIsmton as my destina tion. I had do definata purpose in view ; bat in a place of its aige I bad no doubt of being able to secure rmt lucrative situa tioo, and the office of "Boots" was better, if I could be unmolested, than the station of President, if I must loose gey mdentity ana Do attacked dy viragos in tb street It was oenp noon of the next dar when tba train whirled op to tba depot at New Hampton.

At this moment the phaeton stopped at the door of the fine old mansion on an ar istouratio otreet. and mechanically,, alight ed and lifted out my cotnoanion. The ball door was flung open. The clasping hand of the young lady drew me within the vestibule ; ber musical voice called sofily at the door of a boudoir. "Alice, Richard has come 1'' Instantly the door flew open, and a dark haired, beautiful woman came forth. She gased at me a moment with nnutterab'e tenderness and tbeu emb raced, with a mingling of fervor and shyness absolutely bewildering. Verily I was a favored individual. An elderly gentleman, supporting him self by a cane, now came forward and sa luted me. calling me bis "dear eon," and cutting short everything I attempted to say by his joyful voluhilitv The folding doors seperoting the fi ting room and parlor, were thrown apart. I heard the subdued hum of voices, the rust ling of heavy silks, and. waiting in the alcoved arch in an east window, I saw a clergyman Kith gown and bands. The elderly gentleman took the hand tf the dark baired Alice and placed it in mine. "Take her." hesnid.with emotion, "and may 0d prosper you We will have the moi-t important thing first, and dinner after ward. The guests are alroadygetting im patient." I glanced at Alice's dress. It was dri dal white; and her beautiful bair was crowned with a wreath of orange bloss oms. The eigSt gave me a tremor. I f.-lt weak and taint.

At this moment the hail door was onsn- ed and, turning at the sound, 1 saw, with my own eyes my second sell enter the room! My exact counterpart. Richard Smith, nutrber two. ins herce eyes took in the scene at one sweeping glance. He rushed toward me with a wild ejaculation, and, tearing tho half fainting Alice from my arms, he plan tea ins nrm grasp on my throat. 1 put my nana on tne saais lien lit ol oih body. "What are you doing ?" he thundered i my ear. "Whet are you doing?" I thundered, in response. 'Your life shall pay the forfeit 1" be ex claimed ; with mad violence. "The man who has dared to win Alice Hereford's love shall die!" "Gentlemen," interrupted the sweet voice of her whom tbey called Helen, "be pa tient; there is some mistske. Which of you is named Richard Smith ?" "I am," replied I. "I am," replied my counterpart. "But which of yoo is Richard Smith the son of Archibald smith V "I am " said my second self. "And I am not," said I ; "my father was named Hubert." Helen looked at me a moment, half in doubt, evidently, bow to treat me after what bad occured. Finally she held ont ber hand. 'I beg your pardon, Mr. boiith ; it waa all a careless mistake of my own.

And then, at a sign from the si derly gentleman, we all walked into the drawing-room, where, in a brief space of time, my counterpart was made the bus- band of the blushing 'Alice. The acquaintance so singularly begun with the Smith family, soon ripened into friendship, and become one of the most precious of life's blessings to me.

After every thing had been arranged for bia intense satisfaction, and as he paused a moment to contemplate the general effect, he became conscious oi a gathering shade, and at the same identical moment a drop fell upon the extremity of bis rather prominent nose. Joe started and looked up.

At Ihe Democratic Itlasa Con vent lost held at Indlaisapolla, Indiana, July SO, IS64. Mr FilloW-Citizens : It has been my pride and my pleasure frequently to al lude to the greatness nf oar country, and the prosperity and happinnrs of our peo ple. The sun of beavt n never abi ne on a people so proepernua and' happy as we were two yesrs ag. Our people, from three millions, had incressed to thirty millions. From a little line of poiolation along the Atlantic, we bad grown and spread until uir shores were wasbsd by two oceans. We bad stretohed out onr arms from tbe lakes of the North to tbe Gulf of Mexio.i. We embraced every quality ef toil and very kind of production. The sails of f ...,. ..eery fres, "1 the nappy"' American lor, -staodmg wpoa Abe deck of hie vessel. 1 Hiking proudly up at tbe stars and stripe floating rloriou )r above bim. and felt that in that flag be bad safety and protection everywhere. Around evety fireside were contentment; happiness and plenty. But what is tbe scene that meets our eyes at tbe present time ? From the plow and from tbe anvil from the physician's office and from the halls of jus tiee we are hurrying to arms. Tbe Union has assumed the appearance of one vast military camp. The tax-gatb erer, too, will soon be upon us, to wring from os our substance. There are grave ar.d important questions for us to decide, llow can we return to that banpiners and prosperity which we onr.e enjoyed? I would answer, it can only be done by rn- forcing everywhere tbe constitution as it is and the Unn n as it was. Whatever amount of power i necesssry, and in whatevei form, to enforce that principle, ought to be and roost be employed. A ri hellion em brecing thousands of oar former fellow citigens now arrayed in arms against tbe government mu-t be put down by force of arms. And, at the tame time that thie is being done for the rebellion it, tbe South, tbat class of our fellow citigens in other parts of tbe country wiio are seeking by other means than those of Cannon-shot and bayonets to destrcy the government, must be driven out of place and power, end other men, who will acknowledge their ob ligations and perform their duty to the country must be put in their places. To accomplish that otject depends upon you and upon me, but more upon you than upon me. You will bave to begin the work right here If you have already begun this good work, as I trust in God you bave, let me urge you to keep it up by evety means in your power for, remember, the government, the very existence of the coun try depends upon it. I am aware, my ftllow-citixens, thst those persons who have deceived you here tofore will endeavor to do it again. They always promise what your interests seem to demaud, bot tbeir performance is very poor. l,et us inquire a little into the pnst his tory cf tbese men, and see whether they deserve to be trusted for tbe future. You remember that a few years ago we warned the people that the formation nf sectional parties was dangerous to the Union and the con.tituii n. You will recollect that tbese men then sneeriogly said to us that we were "constitution and Union savers." Tbey told you then that ll t.lk about dar. ger to the Union and the constitution waa the merest braggadocio. They a.serted that there was no danger of the South re ceding that you could cot get them out of the Unior. their slaves would up and mur der them. Wtll, we did not find that ex actly the case, did we ? Tbese men cheat ed you then, didn't tbey ? Some of them cheated themstles; others, and by far tbe largest portion oi tue party, did not, alino' thev cheated you. W ell, we passed along as usual, and what turned up next? When there begun to be signs oi troutiie in the southern country. we conservative men stepped forwsrd and said, "Let's compromise." They replied. "XNOi we win never compromise with reb els in arms." They protested the pro- fenndest contempt for tbe South said our women wouli go down there and drive them all together into the eoulhern ocean it was a mere breakfast spell. Again they cheated you. Again they proved false prophets, and. like false prophets of old, tney ought all to be stoned to death. Cheers and laughter. No tbey would not compromise, ibey wanted a little lilood lettitig it was absolutely necessary for tbe uture peace, iney said it would not come to much theee people down South would not fight at all ; and wben at length your President called fur an army of sev enty-five thousand men, you were told that they would make rapid work of the retell ion. It was to be annihilated at a single uiow. so taid these men. Weil, bow does the matter stand now ? We have al ready mustered in six hundred and ninety three thousand, and still there is room for more. Laughter. Ab, my frienls, these men were never mire mistaken in their lives than wben they assume to nluce such a kligbt value upon the strength of tue rcDsuion ana the courage of tbe people of the South. It is no particular credit to any American to say that be will fight: that is one quality tbat is common to the American race. Tbey have always dis played that characteristic wherever they bave been. These men, therefore, when they told you tbat Southern people would not ngbt, either did not understand the subject, or they willfully mi.led yon. Well, what next ? They come now after tney nave louua out tbat tbe soutbtro sol diers will fight, they come to you again and cry, "We bave been mistaken tbis time, but we bave it now just arm tbe negroes and the work will be finished io short or der." Fellow-citixens, as often as I hear a man talking in tbat way, I come to the conclusion that be want lo find tome ex cuse for changing the issue so as to get someone eise to do tne nghting. lfsdoo fr i . , , .hi tu volunteer iLiiugnteri io man of commt-n intelligence can be induced to believe that tbe negro, naturally an it.fe rior race, and debased by ignorance as be is, can ever compete with the white man upon tbe battle field, any more than he can anywhere ilse. Set them against each utber, three to rne. and tbe white man will be all the time tbe victor. In Mexico, where our soldiers fouebt mixed race, they were victorious on every battle field, although outnumbered io the ratio of nve to tne. Ave, if tbe African ia afraid of anpthiog on tbis tarth, it is guntowder. lo wbst estimation can you bold tbat man who trlls yon that the lib erty. independunce, and constitutional bm eminent of the oouotry depend unon a few miserable, ign rant, cowardly negroea? We have a population of twenty millions si wuiw peopie, ana immense wsnlib ; properly directed, ere are capable of beat ing any army me w rid ever saw or ever will see, end be wbo has tbe effrontery to say tbat we caunot maintain our govern ment without the help of negroes utters a lib 1 upoo the American nation. It is false that slavery ia the cause of tbe present unfortunate coadition of things. Tbe cause dues n lie there ; it lies in an other place. The mischievous legislation of these abolitionists in Congress ie tbe cause and tbe ooly cause. I speak plainly VOL. 20 NO. 9 but I speak piecietly what I think. Now tns thing. When we met one yeara ago in Congress both branches pledged themselves that the wsr should be proeecoted for the preserva tion of (he Union and the constitution and for tbat alone. All of tbese abolitionists either voted for tbe resolution which was adopted embodying that sentiment, or ran nut of tb U'ue to avoid voting at all. Well, the resolution was adopted. Tbe President issued bis ea 1 for vilunteers, and six hundred and ninety three thousand rushed to arms upon the faith of the sol emn ledge which C ngress bsd given to the people. Time rol:td on. and success seemed lo smile open our efforts. Our wes tern armies bed won great and glorious victories. The southern people were ttill divided. Just at tbia junetnte Congress meets. Tbe dominant part goes immedi ately to work to undo all the wise legisla tion of the called session. Every proposi tion that is brought forward ia for tbe ne gro. It soon became apparent that the ma jority in Core-res waa no longer bound by the' i ir.stittitioo. - 1: s'ead of cuh.iiu t. ward with roeaearee of peace and concilia ion, they came with confiscation, fire, and swurd, and by tbese meesures tbey at occe fired and united the hearts of the southern people. a bus far we conservative men bad gone ind in band with these bvnocritea. in good faith; but here we left them. We parted with them with great sorrow and pain. Then it wat tbat 1 became sati.fied tbst the majority c mtrolling Congrese meditated the destruction ot the govern ment that they preferred a divided eov- rnroent, with tbe cbancee of power and tunaer. History is full cf exsmrles that co to show that governments are never destroyed oy mean oi eitner rebellion or foreign oes witnoui some fault upon tbe part ol heir own rulets. You msv turn to the Scriptures, and y u will find numerou. instances in point. The children of Isreel were not, nor could they bave been, divid ed by the wickedness of Jeroboam, the son oi .ncds t, woo rebelled against the govern ment; but it required tbe mad fi llv nf Rehoboam, tbeir rightful sovereign, to di vide tbem. When the wise mrn who bad been for many years tbe faithful admers of bis rather came to Keboboam and endeavored lo persuade bim lo respect tbe rights of sll bis sutijecte and administer the government without partiality to any, his answer wss: MT lather lashed you with whips, but I will lash you with scorpions, and my little finger shall be thicker than my father's thigh." From that day forward it-reel was a divided kingdom, shorn i,f it rlorv and of its power. This la-t Coogress bas done lor us, as far as wss n their power. te very same tlrng thst Rebutoam did for the Kingdom of larael. Aa I bate said before, one Tear arn thera was a large Union Ventimeut in tbe South. In view of this fact, what should have been mr policy ? Should we have et.d--avr.red to convince these people tbat benratb the nag ot their country sll their rights of property were secure? I do not know how you are going to reconstruct this Union without some basis to place it upon. Sorb bais we might have had in this strone Union elemtnt at the S uth. Who does not know tbat two-thirds of the seceded States were csrried in the wickedness of secession eboolutely without the cot.tsnt of tbe peotle and against their will. 1 re besrts of these people were for the old government, in which they bs J always trustso, ana tne old coiotitution, which they bad always revereJ Sut p ea our plicy bad beeo to foster enl encnursgein stead of driving off that Union sentiment. There would have been no army in the field t -day. But, in lieu of tbat p. licy of conciliation which woulj have been our salvation, we adopted the policy of meet- ng tbem all with fire and sword, and tbe fatal consequences are not yet all told. nut, 1 agree tbat it is right and proper in every government that, where you put down rebellion like this, you should punish tne jeaoers, out no government ever adop ted the policy in relation to tbe people themselves that ours has. A few years ago, the Hungarians rebelled against Austria. Tbat is one nf tbe most despotic govern ments on tbe face of tbe globe. Tbe gov ernment eucceeded in overthrowing tbe re bellion how ? They executed a few of the leaders, sent tbe remainder into exile, and passed amnesty to the residue who were not leaders lu tbe rebellion. There never was a government tbst bss not uni formly let the burden full upon the leaders while the great mass of the people were permitted lo return and resume their alle giance to the government. And I will ventu-e to essert that if, after tbe battle of Fort Done If on. the government had adopt ed thia policy of concilisti n. there wonld have been no rebel army in the field to day. But instead of that being tbe ease, they are at this moment confronting as with an army more numerous and superior to our own, and we are compelled 1 1 call for more vilunteers. Now, the volunteering now going on, in view of the doubt already cast upon the sul ject. stands fair ; but it is evulent that our people are not rushing to arms with the spirit and in such numbers as Ibey did when the former Call was made, when there was a hope that the wsr waa to be conducted upon nv re humane and conservative principles. In this Stite and in Illinois we shall rrot-al ly sneered after a while in raining oo'qu its of volun teers, but in many of the States thev will be forced to draft. Tbe Congre-ioi,al legs iHim'ou oi Ute has beeo lata! to us in every way. 1 bear a good deel said now and then about the "statesmen" of thie republican party, but I bave never been able to put my finger upon any of their statesmsn sbip. I bave served along with them in Congress, and I have found it invariably the case tbat, whenever any man called b? tbeir name begint to rise to tbe position of a true statesman, they crowd bim oat of the ranks. Take Mi. Cowan, of Penney) var.ia, aa an example. They hate tbst man worse, and denounce bim more bitterly eveo than they do me ; for tbey eay Rich ardson is en Ud sinner anyhow, ar,d tbey do oot expect much of him. I am afraid that wben the future histo tian cmea to write of our time, as be will do, be will group tbese men, with respect to statesmanship, and will esy, -Uere is a set ot one-idea bxls. who permitted the government banded d iwn to them by their forefathers to fall to the grounl re her than give op an absurd notion which could never be realised or carried out.
