SATURDAY EVENING. SEPT. 30,1871.
HA8HACIIIXKTTH.
Speech of G-en. Butler.
Worcester, September 87.—The following
is General Butler* speech!
Gentlemen tf the Convention, —I suppose
it limy not bo uninteresting for you to know
what is my view of the result of to-day's
work," and If it pleases you that I may state
it, I feel myself bound so to do. [Cries of
"Let us have it;" "(Jo on."J After tlie
retirement of Governor Clallin from tho
canvass, I allowed my name to bo put be
fore the Commonwealth, and when I
judged it necessary 1 followed with such
considerations as seemed to me fit, in
order to induce some reform in the Repub
lican party, and especially upon the
local measures. How I was met is a mat
ter of history; met by the press, met
hy the organizations established by the pa
tronago of the State government, met even
by the Senatorial delegations in Congress,
which descended into the arena of State pol
itics : met even by some of my colleagues.
I endeavored to treat them each, one and
all, as Republicans. 1 endeavored to hold
high the banner of the Republican party ; I
endeavored, as far as in me lay, to so con
duct the party as to lead to its greater use
fulness. I was then met by many men
who threatened to bolt the nomination of I
the Republican party in case 1 was nomina- i
ted. This would have justified me, in my
judgement, entirely in repudiating the ac
tion of any convention in which men should j
vote and declare these determinations be
fore I submitted my claims tt* it. Hut I
am a better Republican than they are.
[Great applause.]
"Having seen that this convention has been j
conducted generally in the spirit of fairness ;
that thero was as little of fraud and mis
takes as can be incident to any convention,
and having fairly submitted my claims to it, I
and not believing that the great heart ofthe ]
people of tho "Commonwealth ever agreed j
tor a moment to the declaration made by
the zealous opponents, I feel myself bound
byjjits decisions as a man of honor. [Ap
plause.] Perhaps with that I have said
enough ; but there is one thing 1 cannot for
get to say, and that is to give from tho very
depths ofmy soul and heart my most grate
ful thanks, (thanks is a cold word,) my
most grateful emotions, to the almost five
hundred men that stood true to me by day
and night, even in the midnight, against all
promises, threats, and blandishments what
ever—to you 1 am grateful. [Threecheers.]
No man ever had such friends before, and
not a man will ever labor more to deserve !
them than 1 will, and inside tho Republican
Inside, I say, the fight shall go on for its
regeneration ; lor its purification ; for the
advancement of labor; for the suppres
sion of vice, and lor its great mission. I
summon my friends that, whiio we yield
entirely to the organization, as we are
bound to do, in that organization we go on
and labor still for the great principles for
which we started out, and as sure as there
is truth and justice in the people of the
Commonwealth, we shall attain them when
the men that opposed us learn, as you
have, what our motives are, and what our
actions will be, and the silence of reputa
tion upon our slanderers is lived down, as
slander ever can be lived down by the good
Now, gentlemen of the convention, for I
the uniform courtesy and kindness with
which 1 have been treated this day, allow !
me to give you, each and all, my thanks j
and hearty congratulations on your success, |
which is not weakened by tho fact of my j
I success. There are things more to be
iired than public office, more to be
ked at than position, and the only thing
arry with me is the kindness and fidelity
my friends, and the courteous forbcar
:o of the great majority of nij oppo
its ; and believe that, whatever may
re been the result of my own work, so
fiir as I am concerned the party with which
1 act and havo acted will undertake to re- !
form its own bosom, as it ought to do ;
and let mo now, in closing, ask each and
every one of the members of the Republi
can party, as represented in this conven
tion, to go forward and do that, so that
this Commonwealth may be in deed and
every minor particular what we all know
her to be—the great general exemplar of
States and the Commonwealth of the na
tion and of the world. [Applause.]
Resolutions were adopted pledging sii|.
]_rt to the Republican party in enforcing
all laws for protecting life and liberty in
every part of our land, in the honest pay
ment of the national debt, in reducing taxa
tion and such reform iv the civil service as
shall secure efficiency and honesty in every
department of the government, and com
mending the administration, both national
and State. It was further resolved that the
shipping interests should receive the imme
diate consideration of Congress, and such
changes be made as woukl restore ship
building and owning to prosperity, and that
woman suffrage deserved attention. An
other resolution indorsed the administration
of William Clafhn, and another promised
to endeavor to elevate the condition of
working people by inquiry and legislation
according to discovered needs. The last pre
sented the name of Hon. William 15. Wash
burn with confidence in his integrity, abili-
M'IUIT OF TUG PRESS.
The Louisville Courier says : "Thero is
one of two things,which Mr. Stephens ought
to do. He ought to quit fooling away his
time on dead issues, or he ought to run the
Cardiff giant for the Presidency."
The Hartford Courant says: "There is
a glorious field for a true '\oung South ;'
it is miraculous that so very few Southern
men have had the courage to confess what
is irrevocable, and spring to the lead in a
march toward the grand future that is with
in their reach."
The Chicago Tribune suggests to Oakey
Hall that "if, instead of delivering his per
son and his good will to the Republicans,
he will deliver his plunder and that of his
confederates to the tax-payers' committee,
for use in the legitimate purposes of gov
ernment, it is altogether probable that he
may effect a truce till the next city elcc-
The New Haven Palladium compare*
some of its officials with the Tammany
Ring, saying: "With years and success,
aided by the indifference of the public and
its unwillingness to attend to its own busi
ness, they may reasonably hope some day
to arrive at the same magnificent eminence
in New Haven politics that their exemplars
havo reached in New York. When that
day comes what a proud city we sliall be,
and how grateful we shall feel toward our
benefactors!"
The New York Times says: "The
Hpirit which made this country free, and
which can alone keep any country free, is
not now to bo quelled by threats from a
miserable knave like A. Oakey Hall, or a
cunning rascal like Peter 11. Sweeny. If
this infamous Ring can not be broken down
without violence, all well-disposed citizens
will heartily deplore the fact ; but they
will break down tho Ring notwithstanding,
0 the learned professions, but certainly
there should be no difference touching their
legibility to handicrafts or light trades they
are fitted for and wish to practice. There
8 many a post filled by a male, especially !
n the sales' departments of shops, that j
might equally well be occupied by a wo- I
man, who would thus release the man to
bllow a more masculine business."
The Newark Daily Advertiser makes the
following comment on Mr. Tililen'scircular:
'Mr. Samuel J. Tildcn has issued a cir
cular letter to the I >euiocracy of New York,
n which he urges the sending of good men
o the State Convention, and closes by I_y
ng: 'Whore ever the gangrene of oornip-I
;ion has reached the Democratic party, we
must take a knife and cut it out by the
roots.' Allow us to suggest that the
iroper place to cutoff that dog's tail is just
lehind tho cars."
Tho New York Tribune says: "Tho
ling leaders have been disposed to pooh
)Ooh the German revolt as another small
storm which would soon blow over; and I
even the sagacious Mr. Tildendoes not look
on it as serious. Hut it will be seen that at j
the important meeting, last night, the Gcr
nan Democratic General Committee re
solved to remain independent until the
reorganization of tho Democratic party, I
and appointed a committee to confer witli
he German Republican Central Committee !
0 secure common action in city affairs by ]
all German voters. This is an important j
movement, and these arc resolutions indi
cative of reform in earnest. The Germans
are a thinking people, and it is impossible I
to blind them to the artifice and infamy I
of the Democratic party in this city. It is I
of the utmost importance that the Republi- I
can Germans should meet this proposition I
to unite for the reformation of the city gov- |
ernment in the same spirit in which it is
made, for great good cannot but come of a j
union of strength for such a purpose."

The great popularity achieved by Marion Har
land as a writer of Action ■will insure a most cor
dial reception for this volume. It is a summary
of many years' practical experience in her own
home; and her "Fellow Housekeepers, North,
East, South, and West/ will everywhere welcome
it as a hand-book of Domestic Economy and a
guide to proper management of their own homes.
It Is written with that ease only acquired by long
practice as a writer, and th. work throughout is I
inspired by that pu_i>ose which has been the
uniform aim and the secret of the success of all of
Marion Harland's writings—to show the dignity
of needful labor, and the beauty, grace, and
sacreduess of what is called "Common Life," as
It Is developed in our American homes.

United States, and the greater part

E PARTICULAR NOTICE.
Iresses all those who have injured
by improper indulgencies andsolita
hich ruin both body and mind, unll
>r either business, study, society, or
marriage.
These are some of the sad and melancholy ef
fects produced by early habits of youth, via:
Weakness of the Back and Limbs, pains in the I
Head, Dimness of Sight, Loss of Muscular Pow
er, Palpitation of the Heart, Dyspepsia, Nervous j
Irritability, Derangement of the Digestive Func- I
tions, General Debility, Symptoms of Coasump-
The fearful effects on the mind are much to be 1
dreaded. Loss of Memory, Confusion of Ideas,
Depression of Spirits, Evil Forebodings, Aversion
to Society, Self-distrust, Love of Solitude, Timid
ity, .'.■ . are some of the evils produced.
Thousands of persons of all ages can now judge J
what is the cause of their declining health, lousing
their vigor, becoming weak, pale, nervous, and
emaciated, having a singular appearance about
the eyes, congh aud symptoms ol consumption.
who have injured themselves by a certain prac
tice indulged in when alone—a habit frequently
learned from evil companions or at school, the
effects of which are nightly felt, even when
asleep, and, if not cured, renders marriage im
possible, and destroys both mind and body— j
should apply immediately.
What a pity that a young man, tlie Hope «f his I
country, the pride of his parents, should be j
snatched from all prospects and enjoymeau of j
life by the consequence of deviating from the I
path of nature and indulging in a certain secret )
habit. Such persons, must, before contempla- j
reflect that a sound mind aud body are the most
necessary requisites to promote connubial hapi- I
ness; indeed, without these, the journey through [
life becomes a weary pilgrimage, the prospect
hourly darkens to the view, tho mind becomes
shadowed with despair and illled with the mel
ancholy reflection that the happiness of another
becomes blighted with your own.
When the misguided and imprudent votary of I
pleasure finds he has imbibed the seeds of this
painful disease, it too often happens that an ill- I
timed sense of shame or dread of discovery de- 1
ters him from applying to those, who, from edu
cation and respectability, can alone befriend him.
He falls into the hands of ignorant and designing
pretenders, who, incapable of curing, ftlch his |
pecuniary substance, keep him trifling month
after month, or as long as tlie smallest fee can be
obtained, and with despair leave him with ruined
health to sigh over his galling disappointment, or
by the use of that deadly poison Mercury, lutstea
the constitutional symptons of the terrible dis
ease, such as Affection of tho Head, Throat,
Nose, Skin, etc., progressing with frightful rapid
ity till death puts a period to his dreadful suffer
ing by sending him to that undiscovered country
from whose bourne no traveller returns.
To such, therefore, Dr. Johnston offers the most
certain, speedy, pleasant ami effectual remedy in
