(Oar Ovru Report.)
A large crowd of ladies and gentlemen
assembled in the grove east of
Martinsville yesterday afternoon to
listen to an address from the Hon..
John A. Bingham, candidate for Con-1
gress from that (the 16tb) district of
Ohio. A stand was erected and seats j
provided beneath the spreading walnuts,
and by half past two o'clock
there was gathered a large assemblage,
largely made np of ladies, and embracing
every age from old gray haired
men to boys and girls of ten or twelve.
A boot half past two Mr. Bingham
arrived npon the ground, he having
been escorted by the Martinsville band
from the residence of Capt. Crawford,
a abort distance above Bridgeport.
Mr. Bingham at once took the stand,
and after a petition to the Throne of
Grace bad been offered up by Rev. Mr*
Campbell, Mr. Bingham was introduc- .
ed to the assemblage by Dr. West, and <
spoke as follows:
Ladxn aud Omttrmm :?An Ameri- j
can citizen, I have an interest in common
with every hnman being within :
hearing of my voice to-day, an interest
in common with all the people who
dwell in this land, in tbe maintenance
and perpetuity of American institutions.
A graver or more significant
question than that which now presses
lor decision on the American peopl#.
never was presented for the decision of
any people upon the globe. I would be
false to myself, I would be false to the
wife and children who await beneath
my roof-tree my return, 1 would be
lafse to every familv represented here
to-day, I would be false to every family
anywhere within the limits of this
Republic, if to-day I disguised the fact
from this people that the uueKtion to be
decided in the coming election is not
whether the Democratic party shall
rule, is not whether the Republican
party shall rule, but it is in short, wheth
er me menus 01 mis government or tbe
enemies of this government shall have
the care of public affair*. I doubt very
mu<h the intelligence or the integrity, I
asthe case may be, of tbe man wbo dis- i
a Its the proposition which I have just
stated. It is "not a contest about mere
political organisation, thatooncernsthe
people of America to-day. We have
passed through "history which has no
Grallel in tbe family of nations. We
|ve seen within the last five years a
I rebellion armed for the overthrew of
American institutions, which mustered
a million bayonets in the field, and was
supported in the terrible struggle by
the power of every despotism through- I
out the Old World. And yet we have
seeu the Government saved!?saved
from this unmatched and unparalleled
peril?saved not without
sacrifice and martyrdom?not without
darkness, thick darkness, that
might be felt, and storm and tempest
I , auch as had not been since man was
upon the earth. Yet tbe Government
of your country was saved, In tbe good
providence of God. It was saved, not
until 300,000 of tbe beauty and strength
of the country had perished in its
high places, ana made even death itself
beautiful by tbe sacrifice of themselves
for their country, baved, not until the
laud was filled with childless mothers,
?filled with orphan children.
No sooner had the armies of the <
Republic under the lead of your gallant i
and indomitable chief, Grant, triumphed
before tbe trenches of Richmond,
no sooner had the armies
of the Republic triumphed under
the lead of that other gallant
hero, Sherman, whose armies
wept- from the mountains to tbe sea, i
lx?aring victory on their banners?a i
thousand miles of march and battle? i
compelling the surrender of the last j
battalions of treason in arms against the i
Republic, until these conspirators who i
had brought this great ruin, and sacri- i
flee and suffering on this people, 1
adopted a new method by which to i
achieve their fell purpose, the over- 1
throw of American institutions and the i
blotting oat of the American name i
from the map of nations. That was
first by tbe hand of the assassin hired ?
to do their work, and next through i
tho treachery of thoes to whom the peo- <
pie might, for the time being, commit j
tbe sovereignty and power of tbe nation, t
Only aereo days elapsed after tbe sur- i
reader of tbe armies of Lee to Grant <
before Richmond, until Washington, i
the Capital of the nation, was filled
with armed conspirators, coin missioned j
yj these traitors who now find aympa- j
thy?I blush to say, * even in Ohio? ?
aiocngat those who were saved from 1
their teriibfte treason, only by the sacrifice
of the young manhood of this na- <
seven days after that event j
JW capital were filled t
isglptp
office; who rememlwraa by night and
by day, through all thoae yeaSTo?trial
tbe oath which with oncovend helti
and uplifted hand, be took at the opening
of the great contest, to maintain,
protect and defend the Constitution ofr
tht- United States.
In Usat boor when the whole land
traa ablaze with Iwafirea and a million
handa In anient thanksgiving to God
were rol-wl that tbe Kepubilo had
ts^XszarsFS' ??as
band la your capital. In the ptw?.
Borrow,
srhen twenty millions bowed - their 1
beads in silent griet over the man- :
?le<l form of their fallen President,
when little children cried in the i
street*. because the father of the Republic
was no more amongst the living?
Andrew Johnson, by foroe of your constitution,
succeeded to the office -of
President of the United States. Standing
above the mangled body of his
murdered predecessor, feeling the pulsations
of a mighty people stricken
with this strange sorrow, he then and
there pledged himself to maintain the
integrity of the (Government and keep
inviolate the oath of his great office as
President of the people of the United
States; to see to it that traitors who had
drenched this land in blood and ridged
it from ocean to ocean with new-made
graves of your patriot martyrs, should
occupy no place or power in the councils
of the nation only to betray the trust.
You remember, my countrymen, his
plain, simple words that went home to
the heart of the people, and received
the approval of every honest mind in
America, when the whole land was
draped in mourning. They were
"Treason is a crime and must be punj
ished and made odious." The orphan
children in this land knew that with!
out the President telling it to them.
| They knew it must be crime that robj
bed them of their fathers in the endeavor
to maintain intact that government
without which there could be no such
1 thing as the security of families. No
i man at any time since Adam woke
; upon this planet, ever saw that beautiful
spectacle of families separate and
; apart sate by the hearthstones, the nur!
sery of all that is beautiful and good
| an<? great in human character?save
; under the protecting shield of civil
: government. It needed not any tongue
of President to convince any man
who had a head to think or a heart to
feel, that treason that undertook to tear
down the fabric of civil government
1 and sweep away the last refuge of huT
i inanity on the earth, was "a crime'*
! and ought to be "made odious.** The
; heart of the country I say responded to
this simple sentiment. Every little
i child in the land was ready to take up
! the cry and repeat it '^Treason is a
j crime and must b? made odious."
What other words did he utter? That
I traitors who had been guilty of this
| great crime against the nation*s life,
| must not be trusted with power or place.
Hia language was that they should be
' compelled to take a back seat; that
j they should not be permitted to partirinalfl
in thn trr??t vnrk nf iw.nran.
. izing and restoring the disintegrated,
I destroyed, insurrectionary States, extending
from the banks of the Potomac
to the banks ot the Rio Grande, and embracing
an area of territory half as
large as Continental Europe?large
enough, at all events, to farni&h homes
of abundance and comfort to one hundred
and fifty millions of freemen.
The whole country agreed with him exI
cept those who had been engaged in the
foul work of treason, and rebellion, and
murder and assassination.
If that man had been faithful to those
simple words?words which he canght
| from the jnute mangled lips of his perI
ished predecessor, Abraham Lincoln?
j if he had remembered onlv the simple
j words of tbat great and good man,
| which I heard him utter myself on the
I steps of your capitol when he took upon
: himself the oaths of his great office:
j "My oath is registered in heaven and I
must keep it on the peril of my soul"?
if Andrew Johnson had only been thus
! faithful and mindful of the obligations
I of that oath, there wonld have been no
I occasion for this assemblage of the peo!
pie to-day. For with gratitude a.ud
j thankfulness to the dead and to the
living defenders af this Republic, I am
j able to say to-day that amongst the people
of the "United States never was there
.such unanimity before as there was on
the day that the pare martyr spirit of
Abraham Lincoln went back to the
God that gave it. Why, the loyal men
of every party in this laud, in all these
great Commonwealths which extend
from the rock-bound coast of New England
to the golden gates of the Pacific,
were as five to one in all the representative
organizations both State and National,
and were as ten to one amongst
the great masses of the people. There
was not anywhere upon the whole horizon
girdling your country round?not
a single cloud as large as a man's hand.
It was by the treachery of Andrew
Johnson that the people were again put
in peril. It is by the treachery of
Andrew Johnson that conspirators are
renewing the work of overturning and
destroying American institutions; and
the result is that to-day in Ohio, as in
every other State in the Republic, you
have reorganized that miserable party
who throughout these four memorable
years of struggle for the nation's life
gave all their influence?(thank God it
was but little)?gave all their sympathy
to the cause of the rebellion, and hall
not one word of cheer for the brave,
true, gallant men who stood in the line
of the battle from one end of the land
to the other, covering with their own
Ersons as with a wall of fire your own
bitations from war's desolation. The
people learned hoar to appreciate that
party. Why, it was swept from existence.
What power had it on the day
Abraham Lincoln was numbered
amongst the dead in any State of this
Union? From the far east, where the
morning sun first beams on the habitations
of your people, looking out on
Europe, to California in the farthest
west, where the habitations of your
people look oat on Asia, there was
n ot one solitary State crossing the whole
continent but was to all intents and
purposes exclusively in the hands of
that great party who had saved
rata?ooveraiueiiv iroin overtnrow. 1
Not one. 1 alwavs except from I
this enumeration the side States of a
Delaware and part only of Kentucky, fc
But with that exception this party bad e
no power in any of these twenty-three I
Stales, who spoke the voice of united a
America, and in whose hands for the t
time being was lodged exclusively the 3
sovereignty of the republic. The legis- a
lature of every one of these States was *
against them. The Governor of every <9
one of these States was against, them. *
And if you look into the XXXIXth ?
Congress of the United States, the Con- 1
gress then in being and still in being? i
you will find in the House of Kepresen- t
tati ves the whole force of that party oat J
of I&i Members, consisted of 38 persons. *
If you will look into the Senate before C
the treachery of Andrew Johnson, yon a
will find the whole representative pow- a
r>r of that organization in the Senate was I
but 11 persons out of 50 Senators. So o
that there was no occasion for concern t
fn any quarter amongst the Atneri- w
am people as Jo the future of the
Republic. All that was wanting
was that Andrew Johnson should
prove faithful. Now that be has proved
faithless, all that is wanting is that the
?reat people who saved this government
through the terrible struggle of a
Tour years war. including tbewse brave
soldiers who nave returned to their
bomes covered with glory, in this, that
they imperiled everything save a trust
in God and a hope of a life to come to
vtve their country from overthrow?all
Lbat is wanting now that Andrew Johnson
has proved himself a traitor, only
tit to take a place with Jef? Davis, is
for that Union party to reorganise, to
close up its rank* and march straight
forward to victory. (Applause and cries
yf41 We'll do it!") I trust you vrill do
it. If you do not, yon will not deserve
to be any longer ou the face of the earth
is a nationality?and, in my judgment,
jrou will not be! A people that will
prove faithless afwr such sacrifice as
nas already been made tor the maintenance
of their government and nationality,
will not deserve any longer either
the lavor of God or the respect of
honcfetmen.

who without colmable excuse strucl

traitors who are red with "the blood "c

be as wild and goilty a fantasy as i
would be for the mothers of the lam
to commit their little children to tb
keeping of the ravenous wolf. I hav
no patience with the man who propose
to do it.
And yet that is the issue and the sol
issue be I ore th4? American people tc
day. The Congressof the United State
was charged by the American peopl
in the Constitution of the United State
with prescribing, subject always to lb
will of the whole people, such rules an
conditions as would secure the fatur
safetyof the Republic?and speedily re
store to their proper place in the Unioi
the late insurrection a ry States. I kiioi
there are men amongst you who pre
tend to dispute to-day the right c
the American people to sit i
judgment upon this question. "VVhj
if that great people who save
this government "by giving the firs
born of their house a sacrifice for th
life of the nation, have not the rigfa
now that the battle by the bayonet ha
been fought and won, to decide th
final status of those States in the future
in common with - the other States,
the majesty and power of the balloi
which is the ultimate force of the Re
public, then it has been in vain the'
made this sacrifice at all. And vetsud
is positively the position assumed b;
your recreant President and that mis
erable party of sympathizers north, am
of rebels South, who muster this day ii
his train. *
Who is "And>" Johnson, or any oth
er man anywhere within the limits c
the Republic that he would thusdare t
insult the common understanding o
the American people? Talk to tho?
people who are the sovereigns o
the land, about any limitations beinj
imposed on them by the Constitutioi
which their fathers"gave them. WJr
that Constitution would not hav"
been the matchless instrument it is if i
had not embodied in it the plain, sim
pie words declaring the right of tlx
people at their pleasure to alter, t<
amend it. I remember, my friends, tb
grand words of Washington, uttered ij
the hearing of his listening country
men, and to be repeated to the genera
tions after them, who would rise up an*
hail him as Father of the Republic
when he was about to depart fron
amongst them and cease to be seen an;
lonir^ramoncst the livine. In his Fare
well Address he notified the Americai
people that the basis of their system i:
the right to amend their Constitution o
Government. It is the basis, thi
foundation stone, the rock upon whicl
the whole structure was built.
Now what has your Congress done
Being charged, by the Constitution o
the United States expressly with thi
duty of proposing from time to tim?
amendments to the Constitution
to be submitted to the people of tbesev
eral States, and by them ratified or re
jected through their State Legislatures
they have simply submitted to th<
American peeple as a condition essen
tial to the testoration of these State;
and the future safety of this Republic
a single amendment to your Constitu
tion. The Congress has passed it anc
sent it to the people for their adoptioi
or rejection. That amendment may I*
summed up very briefly and VW]
plainly in these words :
First, that no State shall hereafie]
deny to any human being within ifc
limits the e^ual protection of the laws
It does not interfere with any of the re
served political powers of the States,
It touches not the nuestion of the elective
franchise. It leaves that where it
always was, under the exclusive care
and control of the majority of those
voting in a State; but it declares
against the abuse of powers hithertc
exercised by States, in which they denied
the equal protection of the laws,
or any protection of the laws whatever,
to some of the noblest men in the Republic.
Why, history would cease to
repeat itself, if after such a feud as that
which shook the nation fouryeam, there
would not be in the rebel majority in
?very one of those eleven insurrectloniry
States a disposition and purpose to
leny any right whatever to inen guilty
>f the crime of fidelity to the llag and
idelity to the Constitution. If we are
0 have this Constitution restored, and
he great body of the men lately in arms
vithin those State* against the
lation's life are to be restored to
political power and permitted to have
1 voice in the concerns of the nation,
ind that is what is contemplated?
t necessarily results that the whole
people of the United States must put
nto their Constitution the power to
>rotect the life and liberty and propery
of every man within the limits of
tvery one of those States, and especialy
of those men who were faithful
hrough good and through evil report
o the cause of the republic. (Ap lanse.)
Why, my fellow citizens, there was
in argument made in thestreets of New
>rleans at the close of the month of
uly, I860, that ought to settle all con
roverey on tnts subject. The State of
jooisiana, as you are aware, bad been
lready reorganized. A legislature bad
>een elected by its people. A civil Oovrnor
bad been chosen bv its people,
ts courts of justice bad been opened
ind established by its people, and yet it
omed out, on tho Inst of July of this
rear, that a Convention peaceably asembled
in the city of New Orleans,
ras broken up by no farmed band of
onspirators appointed ? pray by
rhom? _Notby Lbo Governor of Louisana.
Not by the authority of a iegisative
enactment of the State of Louisana.
But by theorderof tho mayor of
he city of New Orleans?a man named
Ion roe, who was found in that city
'itb rebel arms in his hands when,
reneral Butler entered on the control
nd government of it; who was seized
s a traitor, and incarcerated in Fort
'hillips as a traitor by tho orderof that
ouunander. [A voice," Uiey ought to
lave hanged hiiul") This man to^day
a Mayor of the city of New Orleans.
VhyT Because three-fourths of the

wen organized it was their right as

xmntry, that even the Congress of the
Jnited States, representing the whole

uad murder, which characterized that
nation of the country during th? four
rears of the war now just happily closxl,

jutin every section of the country.
To put a fetter forever on the power
>f a State to do (bat-thing, and on the
nocbery of a President who eball dare
o do that thing, I ask tbe American
nople to place in their Constitution
bat NO State shall pwt to ttv

njCAX. PBOTVmOH OF its LiOT.
My countrymen, if ever there was a
Democratic sentiment worthy tho oonnderation
of men, ottered by mortal
nan, that?the sentiment which I have
uat now ottered: The equal protection
Jf tbe laws to every person within the
nrisdiotion ot evury State?no matter
she nee he comes, whether aitizen or
*ranger, so long u be abides by tbe
XM J.X4UULUJU1.1 vyuik, IT
- law, and comports himself well towards
t all other persons, be shall be entitled to
b thewmc protection as the most distini
auished member of the Commonwealth.
I There is something divinely beautiful
i in it?something that never would have
- been dreamed of amongvt men but for
V the teachings of that divine injunction
i uttered eighteen uentnries ago on the
t kills of Jndea: "Whatsoever ye would
- men should do unto yon, do ye even so
;t unto them." It is an attempt to put
e that elemental principal of Christianity
- into your Constitution. It is presentr
ing to the world the sublime example
- of a great and powerful people sec>f
ond to no nationality on the face of
>f the earth declaring- by their national
l! law that in the hereafter the humblest
it human being anywhere within their
'1 limits shall have the same protection ol
e the law as the President himself. It is
e a recognition of that divine Word,
s which in the infant days of the world
came to men as a voice out of Heaven :
e "Ye shall have the same law for the
h stranger as for one of your own ooun?
try." It is a proclamation that liereafe
ter I>azarus in bis rags shall be as sacred
s before the majesty of the American
e law as the rich man clothed in purfl
pie and in fine linen. I desire to see it
e put there for the sake, above all things,
u of the five hundred thousand orphan
a children who are this day the wards ol
** the Republic?who are fatherless to *
day because their fathers laid down
>f their lives on every stricken field in
n this great conflict for the life of the na%
tion. I wish it to go out to the
d world that in the hereafter no man,
t though he be a devil incarnate, after
e the manner of these conspirators who
t plotted against the nation's life aud
s waged four years of treasonable war
e against it, can mock, and ieer, and
>, deride them when they wander fathers'
less, honseless and friendless through
i, the streets and say that they ar?j not
entitled to the protection of the laws,
v- leaving them no other refuge at last
ti than to lisp with their infantile tongue
y the prayer they had learned at their
lost mother^ knee: "Our father in
I heaven, give us this day our daily
a bread." I want the Government by its
laws to say, the humblest child in this
i- land is hereafter under the care and
f protection of the twenty millions of free
0 men who saved an imperiled nation
f and conquered a million of men in
e arms, and made every tongue confess
f the supremacy of the "Republic, so at
; last established by such a sacrifice as
1 never was made by mortal man before
r upon this earth. If there be any man
e here stupid enough, or weak, or wicked
t enough to object to the righteousness,
- and justice, and necessity of this pro
e vision io me ittnsuiuuon, 1 would
0 thank him to rise in his place and let his
& neighbors look upon him and see what
a manner of man he is. [Laughter and
- a voice, "Not many of them here.**)
- No; not many of them anywhere. The
1 truth is they attempt to hide this issue
from the people. You see it nowhere
i iu the columns of their partisan jourV
nals, in no part of that long address is
sued by those conspirators and traitors
l and thieves which assembled at Philas
delphia on the 14th of August, to ref
store this Union under the lead of Dick
8 Taylor, the murderer of your soldiers,
l (Applause.) Simple and plain and just,
it will go direct to ihe heart of the
? American people. No man can for a
f moment resist it.
a What else in this amendment? That
a hereafter the several States of this
, Union, whether North or South, east or
- west, shall be equal in political power
- in the councils of the nation in propor,
tion to the basis of their representative
9 population. It does away with this
- miserable aristocracy which has
s been the curse of the land and
, bred this terrible distemper which
- culminated at last in this armed
1 rebellion. I?t no man be disturbl
ed at what I say, and go away bawling
> in the ear of his prejudiced neighbor
r that, this fellow who addresses them
is one of those "miserablo fanatics,"
r "nigger worshipper" and an "abolition*
ist. I worship none, sir, but God,
. the Father of us all; and as for aboli
tion, if you mean by it the emancip?.
tion of so many of our countrymen
as were slaves in the persons of their
I ancestors, through many genera}
tions, I have only to say that that,
> thank God, is a closed question. Kverv
f fetter that bound every human limb
i turned to dust and ashes in this great
contest; and when the clouds lifted
, from all your stricken fields of battle,
, the sun in his course over the heavens
looked not down upon a slave! The
question is not one ol abolition at all.
It is a question of the equalization ofj
political power amongst these
States; whether in the future, as in j
the past, now that this war for the
Union is ended, South Carolina with
her little knot of aristocrats and men
who neither toil nor spin, nor gather
into barns?who are accustomed to
reap where they had not sown, and
gather where t^ey had not strown,
shall, under unequal laws in this land,
have four fold the power of the same
free white population of the North.
My good friend who extended to me the
hospitalities of his house to-day, was
good enough to remind me that there
are some people in this laud whose prejudices
are so narrow and bigoted that
they immediately get mad whenever it
is named to them that this is an attempt
to convert this into a black man's government.
For my own part, I never
had any sort of respect for that man
who did .not know that human
character depends infinitely more
on the whiteness of the soul
than on the whiteuess of the skin.
[Laughter and applause.] When I
hoar these creatures talking about
"nimMrs" I rannnt hut oof Iliom A
as vulgar fellows, and remember a remark
made once in the Senate chamber
when that very same utterance was
made?X believe it was Mr. Seward who
said it: "That fellow will never be
President who spells negro with two
g's." It is a vulgarism. It is appealing
to the prejudices of men on a question
of this sort. These men' whose
misfortune it is to have tawny skins
have suffered enough without being
made subjects of persecution or the centre
ot political faction in this country.
When a man talks about "niggers" to
me I turn to my lexicon and find it is
a word that does hot represent any
family of man?a mere vulgarism. The
word "nigger" comes irom "niggard,"
a mean fellow?so that a sheep thief
or a traitor is a "nigger"! though his
skin bo while as driven snow. [Laughter.}
,
But to satisfy the prejudices of .these
fellows who oppose this second proposition
in Lite constitutional amendment,
I tell them that they are attempting
two things: first, to have men in the
majority in tie State of their nativity |
represented bv-the vote of the minority
?all the while calling themselves
"democrats." And in the next place,
so far as it hi in their power, while doing
an act of injustice, they convert that
part of the republic into a black man's
government. How? "Why under the
present law, South Carolina is entitled
to six representatives in the Congress
of the "United States. Yet in round numbers
her white population is but 250,000,
while her colored population is more
than 400,000, According to the logic of
these, fellows who are babbling about
a "black man's government, they propose
that in the future as in the past,
that little knot of aristocrats in South
Carolina are to havo four representatives
on account of their black population
and two on account of their while
population?the whites, however, casting
all the votes. I do not propose to
h^thatbe ?*> any longer, with the help
.1 say where a largo portion of tho people
of a State, and especially a majority
. of them* are excluded from the
enumeration of the people, and permitted
to have no voioe in the government
of the States, that the minority
who thus deal with them shall not
cast votes, for them?any more than
they shall cast votes for horned cattle.
I say that for every State. I am not
willing, now that this war has been
fought, and the manhood of the North
tested, as the manhood of no people on
the earth over was tested before, in
armed battle, that it sh*ll remain a reproach
to the North* that one man is
South Carolina hereafter is to be equal
lofour men in Ohio. I heard enough of
thai sort of liteirature and talk previous
to the rebellon. You remember
their public journals teemed with
the taunt and nieer. that the
North , was filled with a set of
vulgar fellows, men Who ploughed
their own fields, ground their own
earn, "small- fisted farmers," to use
their own expression, "greasy mechanics,"
and "moon-strucktheorists," who

these men of South Carolina, by force
of this amendment, to know that a
white patriot hi Ohio who has returned ~
from this conflict for the Union, inuimed
for life, and covered with honontble
scar* received on the heights of Kene- Pfi
saw, if yon please, where his name will
tie echoed after that mountain shall (1
have been baptised in the light of a Wit
thousand coming years?is at least their be J
peer at the ballot box. I want, by.put- con
ting this second simpte'rule into the P
fundamental law, to have^dt; known -pj,
hereafter in tbo Republic, that there is Kx,
no discrimination in its laws against s
the workers and the builders, the very* Ex]
elect,*who by their industry and honast Sg
toff, feed and clothe and shelter na- bjn
lions. I want it understood hereafter st
that the true nobility in this land, by
r virtue of the application of your law,
are the men who in war save it by their -j^j
valor, and in peace save it by their vir- i;
tue. T am not of that class of pbiloso- sut
pliers who think.a man is not a gentlet
man because, in accordance with the iafi
Divine command, he eats his bread in boc
the sweat of his face. On the contrary, _?
I have learned to believe in the light of
our purer ana better civilization, that
the only nobleman on earth is the man ^
who finds out his own true work and
does it, whether it be work of brain, or thii
heart, or hand. He is a nobleman who o'd
r sweeps away the forest, who ploughs
the field, who scatters the seed and d|n
gathers in the harvest, who hews from goo
the forest and rock the material
and builds the habitations of _?
men, who clothes your plains
with fields of golden grain, and
your mountains to the very summit
with the purple vine, who uncovers the
hidden treasures of tbo earth and developes
your immense mineral re- gj(
sources and with the right hand of his
genius, amidst the darkness which
broods in the smoke of your furnaces
and mills, drives the revolving wheel T
and moulds the metals of the earth into .1
forms of strength, utility and beauty. '
Away with these creatures calling
themselves aristocrats!?calling themselves
"gentlemen!" who never made a FA
blade of grass to grow where none grew
before, thereby giving a drop of nourishing
milk to one of God's creatures,
who never had the intelligence or man- t
f hood either to rid his own mind of an
error or to plan* a new thought in the B
mind of his brother man. I would say
to all such fellows whether they live in
South Carolina or Ohio as the ironsouled
old Cromwell said to the worthless
parliament: Begone, sir! "Begone
! the Lord hath no further use for
you." [Laughter.]
