SPEECH —OF— HON. C. L. VALLANDIGHAM. ABLE DISCUSSION OF THE POLITICAL ISSUES. (From the Cincinnati Enquirer.) DAYTON, July 28, 1868. The mere announcenicnt tliat Sir. Yallau- dibaiu would address the Democracy of Dayton, at Bcckel HalL to ui-bt filled the Hall to rciilction. : The meeting was not intended aa a great demonstration, and no effort was made to make a big show of numbers or display. An impression had prevailed iu the early port of the evening that the meeting would be held in front of the Court house, and a considerable number gathered there about dark, so that there were really two meetings assembled at different points to hear the same speech. Finally, the heat in Beckel Hall became so oppressive that a motion was made and car ried to adjourn to Court-house square, where the concluding portion of Mr.Yallaudig- hanis speech was delivered. The mention of the names of Blair aud Seymour was the signal for the most unboun ded enthusiasm. Mr. Vallandigham's Speech. As a Delegate to the recent Presidential Convention, I report to you, my Democratic frieuds, officially to-night, the result of its labors, and propose to consider also, briefly, and without rhetoric, the political situation and prospects. DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES. Not originally a member of that Conven tion, but called to aid in its deliberations af ter iis session had beguu, I wrought with fi delity and earn est uess to secure that object which, iiet lo principle, seemed nearest to the hearts of the Democracy of Ohio for the last six mouths the nomination of George II. Pendleton. "We failed because of reasons not necessary nor proper now to consider. But iu all else, the labors of the Convention could uot have terminated more in aecnr ttnee with the wishes aud purposes of tnie patriots and Democrats, or better for the x)uutry. Fur President we have nomiaaL-d Horatio Seymour, an eloquent orator, and able and experienced statesman, an aco-n niched centleman. sober and rigtiteona .u the enlarged, catholic sense of the term ; man of the strictest pecuniary integrity ; the candidate of no "ring" or faction, and one who will neither himself 6teal nor permit theft in others. And this, after the larcen ous experience of the last seven years, which have mocked and dwarfed the gigantic pec ulations and corruptions of even Koman or English history, and wherein, as in periods of physical. epidemics, every phase and spe cies of public crime and offense speedily as sumed the form and type of robbery or theft is high, exalted eulogy upon the candidates and gives promise of a return to honest times. Nominated, to my personal knowledge. against his will, and without a pledge or promise to any one, he is under no obliga tion of any sort, other than that which binds the patriot and gentleman. And if he be 'insane, " as little creatures with false, ma licious tonsues insinuate, I would tnat the same method were in the madness of all public men. For Vice President we Jiave nominated General Frank P. Bras' a civilian and soldier, bold in the Cabinet and brave in the field ; readj to take all just and necessary responsibilities ; skillful in adapting means to enda, and prompt in executing his purpose; liberal and tolerant to the opinions of others, and in the very midst of the furore of the late civil war. capable, as I know, of dis cerning and conceding the highest patrttfiisiu of motives in those who differed widest from hinL Such arc the candidates put in nomination; and iu view of their superior excellencies and qualifications, I may justly say that vo ting for them is the highest exercise of true, genuine "manhood tsunrage , ana moreo ver, that in my deliberate judgment ana deep conviction, this ticket is a winnim ticket, and will receive a decided majority the entire electoral college, veu without reckoning upon a single vote from the States lately composing the "Confederate Govern ment." - - REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES. At no va As to the candidates, General U. S. Grant and Schuyler Colfax, who make up the tick et of the UcpublicaB party, I have not word personally of denunciation or detrac tion to utter against them. I leave that whole style, fashion and system, of political war fare to pur enemies, and I pray. Heaven put it into then- hearts to devote every hour of tunc, and every instrumentality as to man ner, through the press and upon the hust ings, to its widest, amplest scope, and foul est, falsest, bitterest malignity. And I pray further that the war and the things of war,' may make up the sole subject of their speeches, their documents and their appeals every way to the people, leaviug to us, they did last summer and fall in Ohio, exclusive discussion, in every form, of great living qua tions of the day Restoration, Negro Supremacy, Taxation, -Tariff, Debt, Currency, and whatever else relates to civil, the political and the material prosperi ty of the country. These be our topics be fore the people, while to them we tire- am plest license to bowl on about 'Rebcls,Cop- perhcads, Ku-Kluxs, Traitors, Convicted Traitors, the Life of the Nation," the glory of the war, and all similar subjects of de nunciation orof praise. As for my t single self, glorying iu every word spoken, every yote given, eveiy act done, and every wrong suffered by myself in behalf of right liberty throughout the. war, I am yet not now to be provoked, by any taunt ' or denuncia tion, into a discussion of anything connected With it. It is upon trial, along with all actors and all Us sufferers, before tho dread tribunal of history, and by the judgment therein hereafter to be pronounced, I content to abide. "Where was Yallandig- ham during the War ?" may be a very pret ty aud telling conundrum in the mouths "loyal" oratorsj; but it neither restores Union, maintains the' Constitution, upholds liberty, pays taxes, reduces the debt, stops stealing, alleviates distress, nor iu any other way reaches the wants and necessities the people, or tends to bring them relief from burdens now too grievous to be borne. Then, gentlemen, I have no word of per sonal denunciation for the Republican ran- didates. I would not detract one jot from the fullest measure of military glory to which General Grant may be justly entitled. I have not a syllable to utter as to his per sonal habits. I care not what his name is or may have been, by baptUm or usage. I know Ulysses S. Grant only as the candi. date of the revolutionary Republican party, and the rcprescntatiye of its principles, its policies and its purposes. TVe are not choos ing the ring-master of a circus, nor the mag- ister of a feast, nor the keeper of the royal horses or hounds, nor even the commanding general of our armies to wage war ; but the Chief Executive Oflk-er of the Republic, to restore peace and prosperity through the arts of statesmanship ; and I know Ulysses 8. Grant only as the symbol of negro su premacy, debt, hard times, high pnees, low wages, gold without taxation for the bond holders, rags and taxes for the people, and an imperial military despotism instead of the simple and beuificcnt Republic of our fa thers. Beyond these General Grant repre sents nothing except the cold lava of the burnt-out volcano of civil war. So"euch then, gentlemen, as to candidates. And now for a moment as to platforms. PLATFORMS COMPARED. a The Chicago platform of 18G8, exults in the labors and fruits of the last seven years of Republican rule, and promises a continu ance of its blessings, such as they are. The Democratic Platform of 1868, recurring to the fundamental principles of the Govern ment, and proclaiming the ancient and sound ntilicics of the Democratic party, under 1 - which, for sixty years, the country prosper ed, flourished was happy aud became truly great, denounces the ideas, the wrongs, the burdens and the oppressions of the present, and demands a chancre. It buries the dead past with all its discords and differences, and goes forth to meet the living present and the quickening future, full of the hope ami limmise of better times : and rallies to its support, on terms of perfect equality, cv cry clement of opposition to the revolutiona ry doctrines and practices which threaten the overthrow of both the ideal and the actu al Government which our fathers established. It begins with the declaration that its trust w in tli intelli-reuce. patriotism ana dis criminating justice of the American people and however this people may for a time run into madness and folly, or do, aqr permit of outrage or iniustice, yet, under Providence, no trust is more sure aial stead fast than in" the sober, second thought of an intelligent, civilised and religious people. It reccnizes the Constitution as the foun dation of the Government and of its powers, and the limitation of them, and the sole bond of Union, and the guaranty of the lib erties of the people, and it admits of no foun tain of power higher than that instrument no "military necessity" or political necessi ty, and no pretence of public 6afety justify ing usurpation of power, and the doing o lu for nartizail tiurnoses. outside of the Constitution. It accepts aa the only fixed results or con sequences of the war, the indissolubility the Union, and the final abolition of slavery bv the voluntary action or the boutuera States in Constitutional Convention assem bled ; but proclaims that the original theory and fact and nature and practice of the Gov- ernment as a Federal Union, and not an im- rverial renublie or lecislative oligarchy, re mains just as in the beginning. It demands the immediate restoration all the States to their right in the Uniuu, un der the Constitution, and denounces the mili- tary despotisms and negro governments which reduce ten States to territories provinces, and excludes them from the Un ion except on terms dishonorable to them, and destructive to the fundameuta princi ples of the Government itself. Recognizing the subhuie maxim, .that err Is human, to forgive divine, it proclaims in the very spirit of peace and pure religion, universal amnesty for all past political offen ses, thus putting to the blush of shame 6hallow hypocrisy of General Grant, who,. deaying both portion and political rights hundreds of thousands of his fellow citizens whom mors than three years ago ho over came in open battle, and delivering them over to a degraded aud ' brutish race lately I their slaves, yet impertinently proclaims, of to as tbe the tbe and us have peace." Of him we may well as said the greal historian of the desolators of the Roman Provinces, "he makes a soli- tude aud calls it peace." Denouncing negro equality and suprema- cy, yet, in accordance witn long eataoiimieu doctrine, it remits the legulation of the elec tive franchise in each State to her own without intervention of any sort the Federal Government., Rejecting the insolent dogma, that a pub lie debt is a public blessing, it demands ment of the debt as readily as practicable, and, unless otherwise expressly required law or contract, in the lawful money, greenback currency, of. the country. then in the spirit of true Democracy, claims 'one currency for the government the people, the laborer ' and the officeholder, the pensioner and the soldier, tha producer and the bondholder. It demands further, equal taxation of property, government bonus included : revenue tariff : economy ; the restoration the rightful authority oi the Judicial and ecudve Departments ; equal rights for and adopted citizens at home and abroad the right of expatriation, and the resubor- dination of the military to the civil author- ity. It proclaims the scalled "reconstruction acts" of Congress, delivering over ten to the supremacy of the negro, under ernments controlled by negroes, to be pations, unconstitutional, revolutionary void. - To the soldier and sailor it guarantees faithful execution of every pledge -' given their favor by the Government ; to the tial settler it promises the public lantjs ; finally to the working men it tenders the sympathy ot the Democratic party, in efforts to protect the aights and promote interests of labor and the laboring- class the country. .'. PARTIES COMPARED. its am of the of So much for the platforms in general. And now allow me to consIi3er of the primary and fundamental dh?erences in principles and policies, between the and Democratic parties. 1. The aim and purpose of the ' Republi can Revolutionary leaders is to centralize the powers of the General Govern uent, as to establish ultimately an Imperial Repub lic ; which in the judgment of the and best statesmen of America, from beginning, can here be but another name a military despotism.- To secure this they began by denying and usurping the Constitutional reserved rights of the- , Next they assumed, absolute power to ; ; of of in time of war in the President, whom they designed "the Government";'! and when af terward they quarreled with the Executive, they stripped him of every accustomed and even of very many of his clearly Constitu tional prerogatives ; and finally sought, by a gross abuse of power of impeachment, lo remove him from an office to which little remained except the title and emolument. And when the Supreme Court stood in the way they began, by hostile legislation, to circumscribe and cripple its jurisdiction, and to bring it into contempt with the people by bitter and venomous denunciation of its Chief Justice. Upon the other hand the Democratic par ty insists, in the language of Jefferson, on "the support of the State Governments in all their rights as the most competent ad ministration of our domestic concerns, and the surest bulwark against anti-Republican tendencies ; aud the preservation of the General Government in its whole aud Con stitutional vigor, as the sheet-anchor of our peace at home and safety abroad." As to policies or ideas, the two parties differ fundamentally in this : the basis of the present Republican organization is big otry, hate and revenge. It tolerates no dif ferences of opinion. It would forever fan and keep alive the flames of that civilwar which for four long aud weary years scorch ed the hearts aud tlcsolatud the homes of one third of the people of tho United States. It wculd cherish forever the hot passions and the bitterness, and the feuds, and discords which in our very midst arrayed neighbor against neighbor, and wrought dissension and 6trife among those of the same house hold. It refuses to forget the vile epithets which found no apology, even amid the fury of a bloody conflict, and glibly spits forth from its envenomed lips, "rebel sympathi zer, butternut, copperhead aud traitor." Professing a religion which is founded on eternal love, it builds itself up on immoral hate. Invoking mercy and forgivness from the God of heaven, it denies all pardon or grace to fellow men on earth. But do these, our enemies, realize that they, themselves, are the very children of political wrath ? llave they forgotten the accumulated wrongs aud outrages which they heaped upon our heads the deuuueia-. tions, the calumnies, the espionages, the mobiiings, the arrests, the exiles and the murder and assassinations which we, their fellow citizens, suffered at their hands ? It is we, too, who have wrongs to forgive or avenge. It is we who might shut the gates of mercy upon them, and demand a fiery and consuming retribution. Animated by their own relentless spirit, L too, might well exclaim : 'A plague upon them t .Wherefore should I curse them ? Would curses kill, as doth the mandrake s - groan, I wpuld inyeut as bitter, searching terms, As curs't, as harsh, aud horrible to hear, Delivered strongly through my fixed teeth, With full as many signs of deadly hate, As lean-faced envy in her loathsome cave ; My tongue should stumble in mine earnest words ; Sline eyes should sparkle like the beaten flint; My hair be fixed on end, like one distract ; Ay, every joint should seem to curse and ban.' But, gentlemen, if such be the spirjt of our political controversies forever ; , if there I is to be no truce to our passions ; if the past of is never to be forgotten nor forgiven ; if the dead carcass of the civil war, with all its en gendered griefs and wrongs and hates, is not some time to be buried out ot sight, then welcome to the fierce waters of the deluge in which perisked the ante-diluvian world ; I thrice welcome the fierce fire from . Heaven or whieh smote and consumed Sodom and Go morrah, so that in God's Providence a new and wiser and better race, worthier of their noble heritage, may populate thus North American continent.

With large multitudes of men, this spirit was the controlling... motive turouguoui the late civil war, and has continued to gov ern them at every slcp in their efforts at re construction. But with a smaller but far more dangerous class of politicians, the sole aim for the last three years has been the perpetuation of Republican rule, through the negraes of the South. To tliis basest motives and Durnosts. the public good and the pacification of the cotuitry have been steadily sacrificed, and, worse yet, all Con stitutional limitation altogether disregarded Signally defeated in their efforts to establish negro suffrage iu the North and West, they have now impudently in their platform pro claimed tnat here each State" shall regulate suffrage for itself, while at the South the elective franchise shall be determined by the Congress ot the United States. Acting upon tike double motive of hate and the desire mahaasin partizan supremacy, they have dis franchised a large majority of the white pop illation of the Southern States, and confer red upon the negroes, by acts 'of Congress, the right lo voir, nd then,, at the point the bayonet, have proceeded to establish even State Governments, eontrqlled by negroes,- or white adventurers evmj. meaner than they mere sojourners, birds of passage, and very foul, birds at that ; anal have gone through the farce of admitting tiiem into the Union and to the right of representation in the Senate and the House, and a full yote in the electoral college for President,. this manner, gentlemen, they xpect V coor trol the legislation and elections of the counv try.

Aye, and this present moment, the "Governor,'.' of that State, elected by negroes, an act of Congress, and through the of your army, is a citizen of Ohio, having legal settlement here"; so that if he would become a pauper and South Carolina very poor now, and no longer able to enrich her satraps the proper towuship iu Couuly of Henry, in this State could compelled to maintain him as a public charge..

RANK INJUSTICE OF THE RECONSTRUCTION POLICY. . Now, gentlemen, suppose for a moment, that the case were reversed, and that the South had waged a successful war of con quest against you here in the West, and had compelled, by force and arms, the introduc tion of slavery here, and you had surrender ed in good faith, under pledge and promise of all other rights within the Union, under the Constitution; and that when you had no further power to resist, a Southern Congress had, at the point of the bayonet, forced con stitutions, governments and laws upon you against your will, and that victorious and insolent South Carolina has sent up here the meanest and basest ot her vagabond "Sand Hill" citizens with carpet-bags in their hands, to represent you, the once free white men of Ohio, in the Senate and House at the Federal capital, and to usurp the places once filled by the Morrows, the McLeans, the CorWios, the Ewings, the Hamers, and the Aliens of this glorious Commonwealth, what would have been the emotion of wrath aud indignation which would have burned within your bosoms ! And yet to just sueh indignations are South Carolina and Virgin ia and their Sister States of the "Old Thir teen," searched and scarred all over with the flames of the war of 1776, subjected, by the false and degenerate sons of the New England sires, who stood shouldorto should er by them in that grand revolutionary con flict, which in blood and suffering, and with precious treasure firtt brought us our liber ties. Ah, but "these men are now rebels and traitors and !you, the Democracy, received them yith open arms and gushing hearts to your recent Presidential Convention." Thank God., we did: and by none were they hailed with more cordial welcome than by not the bloodless though bloodthirsty homo loyalists Hancocks, the Franklins, the Ew idgs, the Blairs, the Slocums, and tho Steed mans, who had met them in deadly conflict amid the sulphurous canopy and shock of battle. We mean to have peace indeed: we intend to restore the Union in fact; and to day we know these men only as our friends fellow-citizens and brothers-the descendants of the Washinstons, the Lees, the Hamp tons, the Sumters the Marion, tho Pres tous, the HayneicHhe Laurens and others, who, side by side, stood with the Hancocks, the Adamses, the Starks, the Putnams, the Gales, and the Waynes of the North in the heroic Revolutionary struggle of '70, or with their sons and grandsons in the latter conflct of i812, or the Mexican war of 1846 Americans all whose fame is the patrimony of the whole country. This is peace; this Union; this aloue is the blessed vision of the seers and prophets of an age gone by; One Constitution, one country, one destiny ! So much for reconstruction. And now, gentlemen, a word upon humbler, j et more practical and scarce less important subjects. TAXATION, TARIFF AND REVENUE. of of of pay a at so called un der aid a is the be a And firat as to taxation in its double form Tariff and Internal Revenue. The sole foundation of the right of Government appropriate any part of the property of the citizens by taxation, is the necessy pf sup porting the Govrrnniient in its several depart. meats, working strictly within the line their duly; and the only measure of the right U the extent of the necessity, a reasonable economy being the fixed rule by which terminate that necessity. Every dollar which the Government extracts from th people beyond this, is sheer downright rob bery. Now, a protective tariff in its very nature, implies the levying of a tax not the necessities of the Government, but the benefit of a class. Levied uyon articles of manufacture, it is money transferred, act of Congress, from the pockets of consumer to the bank account of the nianu facturer. And this is robbery. Previous to the war and the Democratic times, average duty of some fifteen per cinL laid upon imports; and without a dollar internal revenue collected by the Federal Government, the amount received was am ple to pay the theu seventy or eighty mil lions of expenditures. Now, as part ot blessings of Republican rule, a continuance of which you are promised under General Urant, these duties run 179m .a nominal or nothing, on raw material, to three hun dred per cent, on manufactures, averaging upon the whole list more than forty-five cent. And of this, pms half at least is absolute gift, by the Government to the man ufacturing interest a gift taken by robbery from your pockets. Eleven times has tariff been raised by several acts of Congress since 1800. and we have now just barely, by the adjournment yesterday, escaped other elevation. Oh, the choice blessings Republican rule, which are to be continued and multiplied under Grant I ' But the iniquity, and the iniquity too, the tariff, is greatly aggravated by the that iu chief burdens fall upon us of West. One-half of the proceeds of the go to swell the .profits of the Eastern inanufacturer,wbo buying our produce cheap sells us his wares dear, and then investinst his rapidly .accumulated wealth in bonds, purchased with "greenbacks" at sixty on the dollar, escapes taxation, receives interest in coin, and after his bonded against the Government, has, in the gunge of the Chicago platform, been tended over a fair period of redempUon," hive the English debt, he or his heir in tenth generation, expect to be paid in at the rate of one hundred cents to the 1 Oh, the blessings of Republican to be continued under Grant ! But West, blinded during the war by the veil "loyalty," at last is beginning to open eyes to this enormous wrong piled upon aud I warn the East, in no sectional but in all kindness, yet in all earnestness, that the strong, patient man of the staggering under this burden, is resolved inexorable purpose, to shake it from shoulders at every hazard. I have said that the necessities of govern ment economically administered, are limit of iU rigl t to tax. Wherefore, it is true that eveiy dollar stolen from Treasury, and every dollar mis-applied the legltlnrBte purpose of government, Is much robbed from the people. And yet j the very first year of Republican blessings, j the year of grace, 1861, wo had the niony upon the floor of Congress, of a iog Republican, that "the Treasury lwn nlimdnred well nLrh in that siuzle luat Al abama. ; eyes, as much as the entire current yearly expens es of the Government during Mr. Buchan an's administration." Republican petit was then in the pulp or embryo; seven years of rapid and vigorous growth, have developed it now into the bone ! grizzle of sturdy.and gigantic theft and bery. And to day the expenditures of the Government, legitimate and larcenous, are nearly five times as great as when eight years ago, the power was snatched from the Democratic party, and delivered over ta Re publican misrule. THE PUBLIC DEBT. is to of to for for by the an was of the emu per an the an of of fact the tar iff cents his claim lan- "ex the gold dol lar rule tha of her her; spirit, West, in his the also the from so in testi j lead ; had And now allow me a word as to public debt. It is a vain thing to day to inquire how this debt came to be contracted,or how much of.it was originally necessary or just. It may have been the most essential, the most Constitutional, the most righteous and the most wisely and judiciously managed that ever a people incurred; or in may have been in every particular just the reverse. No matter. It exists and must be dealt wi h accordingly. The Democratic and Re publican parties both recognizing it, differ widely, radically, in regard to it. The idea or notion of the Democratic party may be best aud most significantly expressed by a paraphrase of Dunuing's celebrated resolu tion against the royal prerogative, a hundred years ago, in the British Parliament "that the Public Debt has increased, is inereasing, and ought to be diminished." The Repub lican platform declares that it ought to be "extended over a fair period for redemp tion"; a phrase curiously felicitous in ex pressing infinite uncertainty of duration. It reminds of Charles James Fox's answer to his creditors, who, vexed with his long delay ironically proposed that he should execute . , . . . . , - j . to them his-bonds payable on the day of judgment. "Ah," said he "just please make them payable tlujlay after." Upon the other hand the Democratic platform de mands "payment of the public debt of the United States as rapidly as possible, apply ing all money (brawn from Jhe people Ivy taxation, except so much as Ls requisito for the necessities of Govcnment economically administered, to such payment." The Dem ocratic party mean that this debt, with all iU burdens and all its corruptions of every sort, shall be paid off; aud I say to you,gen tlcmcn, that in my firm conviction, Republi can Government can not long endure here even hi form and shadow, if this huge mountain of debt is to continue; and that no form of government could exist pure aud in corrupt, if this debt is to become permanent; Uiion another subject, gentlemen, the poncy or tne two parties is m marked con trast. Planting itself firmly upon the fixed principle of all just governments, tliat taxa tion ought to be equal, the Democratic par ty demands that the bonds and oilier securi ties of the United States shall be taxed the sunie as other property. The justice aud equality of the proposition are too plain for elaborate argument. These bonds and se curities have every legal element of proper ty in the hands of their holders, except tax ation. Why, then, the exemption? They now amount, in Tarious forms, to some $2,- 600,000,000, or about one fifth of the entire property of the country. And yet this one- fifth claiming the special care and nurture of the Government, drawing its interest in gold, and in the hands, chiefly, of the wealth iest men, and soon to become exclusively theirs, pays not a dollar of tax in the man ner or to the extent which it would pay if were other property. To-day your capital ist owns a hundred thousand dollars in lands and goods, and pays no taxes, income in cluded, State and Federal, according; thus bearing his full proiortion of the burdens of the community in which he lives. To morrow he sells all, and invests in Govern ment bonds, receiving his interest, paid now by other wen, his neighbors, in taxes, but lo himself pays not a dime in taxation, saye the inconie tax, deducting yirtually iu psper from the golden interest which he receives. Aod now tbe entire burden taxes, remaining just the same as yesterday, falls upon those of his community who own no bonds. And yet leaders of the Republi can party, high in position and influence, have the audacity to tell us that whoever is for taxing bonds is no better than a peni tentiary convict ! Well, be it so;' but there -are three millions and more of white Amer ican voters in the United States, w ho are re solved that, penitentiary convicts or not, they will have these bonds taxed. I come now to the mode of paying the public debt, and the subject of the urrency in general. Gentlemen, I am a hard money man. I always have been. There 110 other real money in the world ; least of all is irredeemable Govern ment paper, money in any proper sense of the term. It is not even representative of money, but only vear. lat ceny but rob Government credit ; and Varies, must ever vary, with the fluctuations of that credit. And it is by so much a greater evil when Government seek to raako its own paper, its own prom ises to pay, a legal tender for pay ments and debts. If Government were to issue no more paper, or little more thaD it wanted for taxes, it need not declare it a legal-tenaer. If issue more, and jt.st..in proportion the excess, no kind or amount of penal or otherwise, and number of legal tender clauses, save it from depreciation. I voted against the legal-tender act of 1862. did not believe It Constitutional then. I do not believe it Constitutional now. Moreover I felt assured that it must sooner or later bring forth its frdlt, and that abundantly. Govern ment paper could not be made or equal to coin ; and there is no more mischievous agent of financial commercial distress than a deprecia ted paper currency. And the evil greatly "aggravated if there be currencies of unequal vajue. I concur fully in all that Gov. Seymour said upon this particular subject, In the purposes of his recent speech as I understand them ; and that to warn the Democracy und the ple of the United States not to swing wholly from their ancient hard mon ey moorings, and become too deeply enamored of the green goddess paper money ; to love wisely, and too well ; not lo accept the extreme medicine of the public debt and as their daily bread. I think the caution was timely and well - I am in favor of ono curren cy, if practicable, and as' soon aa prac ticable, and that currency gold silver. This twenty dollar gold which I hold in my hand General Bchenck intimated last fall thnuLetole it ; no matter ; it was certainly from him ; and moreover let me him that it is not the wages of politi cal prostitution, uor yet of that which is political death ; pardon and digression this gold piece is money 'not indeed "lawful money," in language of th ley d-tender act, but Constitution". 4. ouey, and the only money known to that instrument. No act of Conere&Ei. and no number of penal provisious, could persuade me that this twenty-dollar legal-tender is as good. as this twenty-dollar gold. This (the gold) is not the representa tive of or substitute for money ; it is money. It does not say "1 promise to pay twenty dollars," but "I am tweuty dollars." Now, gentlemen, I should be very glad to make this pa per money as good as gold if I only kuew how. I remember in ancient mythology one Midas who besought the gods lor power to turn everything he touched into gold ; but 1 recollect, also, that in the eequel of the story Midas was written down an ass. I know, then, of no way of making your Government paper as good as. gold, except either by immensely re ducing the volume somewhere nrar to the standard of taxation or requir ing it to be redeemetl on demand in gold at the Treasury of the United States. Rut neither of these is now practicable. What then ? Necessarily we are to have two currencies for the present gold an 1 greenbacks ; a dol lar in coin cquai to a hundred cents. of to of and a dollar in legal-tender represen- ting'variously from fifty to seventy . . J . . ' ocijf it cents. Ana now. nam monv-man as I am, odious as a depreciated, irre deemable Government paper, forced upon the people, is to me, I meet the issue squarely. If you have gold enough lor all, let u. all have gold. But if not, and there must be paper for some, then paper for all; and in the language of the New York Dem ocratic platform, "one currency for the Government and the people, the laborer and the officeholder, the pen sioner and the soldier, the producer and the bondholder ;" and whosoever would have gold, let him buy it in the market at its value in currency. And let us have no petty quibbling about the phrase "lawful money." In the platform it is tho antithesis of coin;" and in the entir legislation of Congress upon the subject for six years it means the legal-lender'green-baek' currency of the country. Re deem, then, in this lawful money lawful to the plow-holder and lawful to the bondholder as "rapidly ns practicable," all obligations of the Government not expressly upon their lace, or by law, made payable in coin Abolish forthwith your National banking system ; take up the bonds whjch tjjey hold, save twenty mill ions of interest to the tax-payers.and, instead of redeeming three hundred millions of National currency with greenbacks, issue a like amount of greenbacks at t nee to supply their place. Here is no inflation ; nor is there any, the smallest hazard, of having "too much money," even, ot "lawful money," iu the. country. With the disappearance, too, of the present National banking monopoly, we shall secure again oldfashioncd specie-paying banks, whose credit shali depend on their solvency, and whose promise-to-pay is .redeemable, not iu another promise-to-pay, but in gold and silver, the Constitutional money of the land. CONCLUSION. of I have now.my Democratic friends, finisried what I had to say upon the political issues and situation to-day. One word further upon another sub ject, and I have, done. You hear from every quarter, thro' the Republican press, the alarm that it is the purpose of the Democratic party to reinaugurate revolution and civil war. Let no man be in tho least concerned. Unquestionably it is the fixed purpose of thre millions of Democratic voters, with all the inten sity which can tire the 8ee that he" is Inaugurated at every is I & ! the born freemen and scornine1 to die slaves, if we shall fairly, constitution- 'an a a, a. .

It is our rieht.and our dutv. too ; as also it is the duty and right of me itepuDiican party, lr they shall legtlly, constitutionally and fairly elect uenerai Grant. J3ut no man meditates openly or covertly, any thing beyond. No. gentlemen, it is the Republican leaders who are the revolutionists. It Is thev who resolv ed by all means and at every sacrifice of of the rights of the States, the liber- it to no can I evil kept and is two has and was ties of th people, and the peace of the country, to perpetuate their pow er, would again plunge us into both civil and social war with all its hor rors. But to the ballot, and not to, the bullet, we now appeal. The people are wearied of the Republican party, ana oi its wrongs and its perfidies, of its debts and its tariffs and its taxations, of its negro govern ments and military despotisms, of dishonored Constitution and a broken Union, which four vears of war and three years of peace under its con duct and legislation have failed to restore ; and they demand and will have a change. And unless every sign and omen by which the political iuture may re discerned, shall rail, so signal and disastrous will be the over throw of this party in November, that they themselves will make haste to recognize and hearken to the voice of the people as the voice of God ; and as chastened children in silence will submit to the judgment which in mer cy to themselves, as to us and to the whole country, shall drive them from the seats of pwer. No, gentlemen, no ; there will be no morecivil war the land ; but the 6un at high noon, shining on the Eastern front of the Capitol on the 4th of March, 1869,will look down peacefully upon Horatio Sej'mour, President of the United States. - Mr. Vallandighani was loudly cheered at the conclusion of hisspeech. of not cur cency, be stowed. and not tell sin the ; the Onk of the absurdities of the "ten- ure-of-offtc6' law, enacted to relieve the president from responsibility executive appointments, Is seen the frtrf. thnt nuti:Wt wVr, serving out his sentence in the Alba- ny penitentiary, Is still revenue col- lector for the district of Brooklyn.
