ELOQUENT SPEECH OF HON. S. S. COX, Delivered at the Great Democratic Ratification Meeting in New York City, Thursday, Evening, Oct. 31, 1867. [From the New York World, November 1.] The chairman then presented Hon. S. S. Cox, who was received, as the previous speaker had been, with great applause. Mr. Cox spoke as follows : . I eonzratalate the people here assembled on the rising of the Democratic barometer! Aitnougn the stormful elements are still about us it indicates future calm political weather! I congratulate the people of tbis levered land that they are cleariug away the mire and rubbish the debris of war, and have struck the Democratic rock, which begins to lilt itself up, in oriental metapnor -casting its great shadow in a weary land." Within this shadow, the heats of hate and the trackless wastes of war are veiled ; the palms whisper peace, cue wen gusnea wicn refreshment, and the sore-pressed find refnge and rest I In this congratulation is-included the Republican party ana me coiorca population. A large portion of the former have contributed to these happy triumphs. All of them, black and white, are embraced in its happy re- suits, x wouia especially congratulate you, my unrepentant, truculent Radicals, that you are marching on, with melancholy music and fnrled flag, to take that place so long and so honorably occupied by the De mocracy the position of the respectable minority I uo not undervalue the position I in it you may earn tbe plaudit of Arte mus Ward to General Washington : "He was useful." Mr. Emerson, the transcen den talist, said at Cambridge, this summer. that there was great utility and hope in a minority. The right and exercise of criti cism tlie virtue that disdains to follow power, to fatten on its rottenness, the In dependent and aggressive dash are tbe at tributes of an honorable and unterritied minority. These may be yours. The hour cometn wnen our majority win dictate po litical action: be sure we will not lessen your usefulness by following your exam pie. we win not ostracise where we can not answer. We will not villipend where we cannot praise. We will not imprison wnere we cannot agree, we win not moo where we cannot argue. We will not teach forbearance to the South, while for getting it to our erring neighbors. We will try and be as Christian in the future as in the past! In one sense it is auite pleasant to be in a minority. You nut only escape responsi bilities and troubles, but vou escape the cry or the vultures and jackals who follow the live lion till he drops. You will find minority a healthy state. No party ever needed it more. 1 hope you will prepare iur lie uuties uetier man you aid ior tnose of the majority. Possibly, vou think we ourselves were astonished at these victo ries. Well, yes and not yes. We did not expect quite such a result in Ohio. To overcome 40,000 of the Republican mnjori to defeat the black suffrage bv 50,000 : and to elect a Democratic Legislature and un seat the President of the Senate Senator Wade was rather astonishins 1 It is said that in New Zealand there is a splendid flower, white as a lily, which, when its petals open to the sun, resounds with the report of artillery in tbe tropical forest. This was the way Ohio effloresced ! Is she not white and ra diant? . The thunder thereof, is it not very music oi tne spneres f let it is sad to see tne iaii come tnougn it Dnngs us the fruits. The russet leaves, the gray morn, the fa ding flowers, the voiceless birds, and the wind moaning its requiem over the grave of Summer are a part of that Providential order, which regards as well the fait of a nttie sparrow as of a great party. My Radical friends, you have been used - to seeking the ways of Providence through political events. Study them with tbis election in view, and tell me if I am not right when I say : "God is holding vou over hell for some wise purpose." He may not arop you. .remaps l might, m my finite view of your deserts. Whether he does or not, may depend upon the strength of your repentance or the quality of your pantaioons. ii tney are snoddy, farewell ! he suspends you lor a time, to inhale the incense and hear the applause of the pit, it may be as a warning not to draw your pol itics from hate and malice, which do not come from above ; but follow us in the be nignant teachings of good will to all. which are drawn from above. There are various meanings asMgned to the late elections. Their true solution is not to be found in lo cal issues. These changes are common to Connecticut, Maine, California. Pennsylvania and Ohio. Local influences may have operated. Tne Radical attempt to make men moral by a constabulary, and to regulate tneir appetites oy statute, had its effect in Maine, as it will in New York and Massachusetts. So, too, the presence of tne snaven-neaaeo, pig-tauea, ochre-colored Chinese in California, are a standing reiutation ot manhood suarage and Radi cal abstraction. These have affected re sults there. Ia Ohio the discussions on debt and taxes, and in Pennsylvania the condemnation of Chase's irredeemable paper money, in the election of Judge Sharswood, who decided ir an illegal tender these had their peculiar influences. But the main reason for this wonderful change is to be found in the reconstruction and negro . policies. Wendell Phillips has made a post mortem examination. lie re ports that the party in Ohio died there of an "utter want of self-respect." Straneelv enough, in a history of New England, one oi the early puritans 18 recorded by an old chrouicler to . have gone out looking for clams, stuck in the mud and died of a want of self-respect. Mr. Phillips says that his party was not just, it forced the negro ballot on South Carolina and refused it in Ohio. But I imagine that this one in stance of injustice is but an Illustration of general aud tortuous system of tyranny, perfidy and wrong which has coiled around and throttled Badicalism. John Sherman said in a speech in Ohio that the military governments were but the scaf foldings for the civil governments ; and their continuance should not be an hour longer than to enforce that object. The re construction bill was not scaffolding it was a scaffold I It was not a means, but it was an end ! It was built to behead the States. The military Brigadiers were the hangmen.- Like another scaffold, it has gibbetted the builder. It is the scaffold of Radicalism ! The one great need of this nation for nearly three years is, and has been, tranquility. The people desired to pursue tbe paths of peace, pleasantness and prosperity. Instead. Congress has given them a quagmire. To go on is just as bad as to go back. To get out is the verdict of the elections. Three different bills did Congress pass, with the ostensible object of reconstruction. In neither of mem was mere justice, ireeaoin, sincerity or Union. The reconstruction policy failed with the people, as it fails to restore the Union. " ' - ' '1st. Because It is subversive of our policy. It has no place in our Constitution. That instrument is a written code. It is the su preme law "outside" of which, we have no business. In its sphere it is supreme. Con gress, President,aod Judges are but its crea tures, and must move within it. To each is assigned a department; and all move in harmony under its written grants. These departments haveonly the powers specially granted. All ethers are reserved to the States. Yet Congress has compounded all the powers of the thiee departments into itself, and subverted and usurped the pow ers of the States. Thus Congress by its re construction acts undertakes to judge what State ueeds for itself ; what should be its suffrage and local rights, and whether, in deed, it is a State at all, or only a province. It held that the Constitution did not rule for the conquered, but the law ot nations was the rule; thus meeting secession in fra ternal embrace, and succeeding by craft in doing what secession could not by courage consummate disunion. Congress plucked stars from the flag. It did what Lee and Johnson and all their hosts for four years could not accomplish. The Democracy now as ever hold that the States tructlble; that tb,ey yet exist, and if eclips- ed by bayonet or negro under the law of congress it is a subversion of our system. Such a subversion is treachery not only to i every personal noerty guaranteed In the i,onstuutioii. out to every Died ire. law. proclamation and resolution passed during the war by Congress. Besides, it gives the ue to tne very conditions of parole exacted by our conquering Generals of the rebel chiefs and their armies. Tbis policy, there fire, is disunion in spirit and form. There is only one policy suited to the genius of our leaerative system decentralization. The States are sources and should be the object ot Federal Government. What with standing armies and federal patronage, force in one and fraud in the other, this system in winch we have flourished and advanced is tailinr: and with it freedom. Monarchy or military despotism will take its piace as tne lnevttaoie alternative.- The people, by the elections, have declared for a retnrn to the old order. How can our leueral system with its immense revenues, collecting and disbursing five hundred millions per year, ever be maintained: how can the debt be honestly paid, the interest couecteo and tne principal diminished, with the stupendous corruption of ten thousand officials, corrupt ani corrupting, eaung out tne siiOstance ot the people, ua less by a more direct svstem of accounta bility. It may be necessary to devolve our immense aeDt npon tne States, divide it pro rata among the States, as the surplus rev enue was once divided, in order to assure credit and responsibility among the federal officers. It the present horde of harpies was under the eye of the States, and direct ly answerable to the people, think you this land would rot in debauchery as it does now unuer tarttr and tax laws and their infa mous administtation? Our permanence, our credit, and our honesty depend on State administration. The Reconstruction policy strikes down the federal aud State systems, and therefore it was condemned. 2d. Thisnollcv will not restore the ITnion. because, it is doubtful if all the States South, with all the fraud, violence, pro scription and Africanization will call con ventions. Some of them, where the white Conservatives prevail, may rrject this scheme. If so, we will be in the quagmire still. They may prefer military to negro rule. All the reconstruction acts after two or three years ot efiort, then fall But suppose that the negro votes register ed, added to the Radical whites, should call conventions, and adopt constitutions in all the ten States. The constitutions are to be sent to the people for a vote. Suppose they are rejected. All this expense of military, money and negro power has been in vain. We are as far off as ever from the object of the war Union. Suppose, however, .the negroes to have the control in all the ten States and adnpt constitutions. Suppose they do all Congress desires. They dis franchise whites and enfranchise blacks- has tbe State then come in ? Not vet. Congress must then adopt. Mr. Sumner must men examine into the philoloay, his tory and philosophy of their republican ism, and it there is a feature in any like the odious word "white" in Kentucky, Maryland, Connecticut, or Ohio the State is further off than "when we first began 1" Or suppose the Executive refuses to send these negro bantlings to Congress there me wnole matter is crushed in the egg. But if the President sends them, and Con gress adopts we come asrain to the nronn- salof the President in his first message in the language of the Constitution: "shall each House for itself judge of the qualifi cations of its members ?" and shall such members be admitted to their scats? If Kentucky Is to be ostracised, because she has sent Democrats to Congress if her wnoie delegation is to be debarred, even those who fought for us and who were before admitted if none but black knuckles may knock at the doors of Con gresj then not only is reconstruction as laroit as m 1U5, but it is further oft. By the same conditions Pennsylvania. Con necticut and other States, because Demo cratic, may be expelled, for they may be added to the list of the suspected and pro scribed. Congress may reform their State (jonstitutions. Thaddeus Stevens has de clared that members shall not be admitted simply because tbe States are in. He must inquire into their politics. Do they con form to his views? Are they thoroughly loyal, be being the Judge ? So that this policy gives no assurance of restoring the union, tne contrary. Hence the peo ple are rejecting it. 3d. Suppose it did restore, what would be restored? Proud old Virginia? No! A mutilated negro Botts-Hunnicutt com monwealth? Georgia? The Emnire Sate of the South? No! A St. Domingo of contention ano war oi races, Louisiana? dear because purchased with a price by Jefferson ! Bah ! A mongrel common wealth! Mexicos and Perus noisome plague spots on our political bodv, gan grening the whole system. This would be our banded brotherhood of States. This would be the cosmos out of the chaos of civil strive? This the Goddess of Beauty from a sea of blood ! You may shut your eyes to these facts, my Radical friend, and try to drown the lesson of the elections by saying: "Better be ruled by loyal blacks than disloyal whites." But remember, first, that those blacks were not loyal ; they never fought for us ; they staid on the plantations aud fed those who fought us; and second, that those whites have for two years faithfully kept their oath of renewed allegiance obeyed every law submitted to every demand" unresist ingly, and exhibited such' forbearance un der outrage that we know not whether to despise or admire their fortitude. Remem ber further that these people, white and disfranchised.have afforded the negro every guarantee they have North, and that they only oppose reconstruction wherein it com mands thein to do what Republicans in Ohio and Connecticut refuse to do make the black s voter, a juror, an officer, a po litical and social equal. Remembering-this. also remember as Christian men, that as you nope ior forgiveness you must forgive ; and that while white men mav be al'owed to change sincerely their devotion from the lost confederacy, to the successful federal cause, and thus the disloyal white may be redeemed as an intelligent liegeman ; your negro loyalist can never change his source, his lineage, his blood, bis color, his quali- wra, uui ins uupruisressive nature anu in born lack of intelligence and self-govern ment. But you tell me that the danger irom DiacK ascendancy is overstated. Let us see. -A fair computation, at this time shows that the white vote, if all given, would be a million; and the blacks 650,000. So that the great white majority, which would amount to 350,000, is overslaughed; and how? In Virginia, where the whites should have 100,000 majority, the registra tion shows a small white majority. In North Carolina, where, if all were register ed, the whites would outnumber 40,000, there is, perhaps, a white majority. In South Carolina, where the blacks prepon derate some 75.000. the black registry is twice above the white. In Georgia, the whites are 125.000, blacks 80.000; but the registry shows at last return, a small ma jority for the whites, yet the whites decline to vote at all. In Florida, there should be 6 000 white majority; the registry shows black majority 5.000; Alabama should show, whites 125.000; blacks 90,000; but the registry shows 15,495 black majority. Mississippi should show whites 75 000. and blacks 85,000 ; but the black majority reg istered is 40.000. Louisiana shows 58.009 white to 52 000 black, but the registry shows 43.175 black majority. Texas should show 75,000 white to 33,000 black ; the reg istry, however, show an immense black preponderancc.Arkansas, the whites should have . 40,000 majority, but the registry shows about 6o many blacks as white ! And wherever there is a doubt, the mean whites will come in and help the blacks' But perhaps the Radicals will say, "The South deserve black rule and ruin, tor their rebellion." It Is a matter of yours, sir, as well as theirs. These black majori ties make representatives and laws for you and yours. If the three million blacks are represented in the Senate, there will be twenty Senators for the ten States ; while, as Governor Seymour said, the four mil lions of whites in New York have only two Senators. Revenge is never wise.. It always rebounds on its concoctor. Look to it! Do tbe Radicals mean that there shall be unmitigated black dominion in these States ? Now, it is only by legisla tive discrimination against the whites that this dominion is possible to be secured By the vote of I860, if the blacks had been then entitled with the white, the maiority ot black voters would have been in South Carolina 15.793, and in Mississippi 9 880 but iu the other eight States the white ma jorities would have beenjabout 292,000! Is it incredible that in one-third ot this conn try, with 800,000 square miles, we should a it to ly : a deliberately turn over the power to rule iu.uuu millions oi people to negroes? His tory, economy, decency, physiology, na tureGod, all are against such suicide. If these blacks were left to good influences, the peril might be mitigated, In time; but they are drilled by base and crafty whites. They arc taught that they have wrougs to avenge : that confiscation, Euffrage, taxa tion and agnirianism, are the rieiitful rem edies. But if the blacks dominate, if a half million, wuites are disfranchised, if the mac anu iuuntui, minorities are to rule then will they make up in insolence and atrocity, what they want in competency and moderation. Let us come to details. Jury trial is one of the great evidences and instruments of freedom. The Constitution assures it. Without it there is no safety. Qow is it to be practically given to the people of South Carolina ? Governor Orr says that there are but six districts out of the thirty-one, where the whites are in a majority. In two districts the numbers are equal. In .each of the remaining twenty-three, the blacks predominate. Of the registered whites in Charleston, 118 cannot write; of the blacks. 2.8661 It la worse elsewhere. In Beaufort, 2,550 colored, and but 65 whites are registered. On every fourth Jury this would give one white. Generally over the State the nrnnnrtlnn la about eight blacks to four whites on a jury: and only five per cent, of the blacks are ca pable of reading and writing 1 Thia ia the jury box the arbiter of the citizen against rorce anu iraua wnicn Ale locqueville thought was one of our American triumphs the best educator of Democratic Liber ty ! I will not ask you to observe an elec tion in Ktcnmono. rne papers are full ot (his farce. The very names of the suffra gans are not remembered by themselves ! But there was little harm done there ; for were not the cavalry on parade, and did not order reign ? But go to Alabama. See one of General Pope's elections for a Con vention I It is at Eufala, Barbour county. The black leagues, led by a few imported whites, encamp around the town the night before. They revel the night through. In the morning three thousand strong, they iorm procession, xney nave our muskets. Every negro is marched up with a Dreoar- ed ticket. The revelry keeps up. The negroes play on their cane pipes and tin norns. strange noises wild barbaric cries rend the air, as if renewing the heathen worship of their barbaric Devil Fetisch. The brave, honorable enduring whites are housed in humiliation. This holv work of lreedom and reconstruction proceeds ! The results of such performances are too serious to contemplate without a shudder. What are these results ? Where blacks are dominant they will tax at pleasure. They pay uttie ; ano win tnereiore levy much. it is nub negro rquanty, out negro su periority, that is to be illustrated. Prodi gality will accompany vanity, and they will be urged to make up by rapacity what is said is due for their unrequited service in slavery. This will provoke resistance, and only force can keep asunder the races from bloody and exterminating war. This might be mitigated if the negroes, fresh from the barbarism of slavery, were capa ble of training for citizenship. But what preparation have these people for voting ? Education? None. Can they take care ot themselves for a winter? For a wer-k? Why does your toil go to pay sixtv millions year for the Freed men's Bureau ? To feed the Steele, lazy negro, who is not smart enough to earn a living, but smart enough to rule you I Do they understand political questions ? Do they understand the nature ot our laws t Can tbey help us to good government? Oh! yes. I had forffotten. i ney nao lessons in pontics irom Judge Kelly and General Wilson. The one sought to arouse their martial attributes in a mob, to fit them for suffrage ; but it was reserved for General Wilson to give them the first lesson lu suffrage in Charleston : "All vou." said the General to the six thousand ne groes looking up to him for guidance, "ail you in favor of supporting by your votes, the great Republican party, which gave you your freedom raise both vour hands !" Twelve thousand ebony hands were np! ah opposeu, raise your nanus." The same twelve thousand ebony hands, each particu lar finger of the one hundred and twenty thousand black fingers tingling to the tips w itn tne tire ii xensation oi tne voting joy, again were u p ! This was voting ! This is manhood suffrage. Mule suffrage would be better 1 Do you know why tbis business has been defeated iu Ohio? It is not merely because there are 7,000 negroes there to vote, for they could do but little harm among 400,000 whites; it was because Ohio did not dare to foist upon herself an experiment, to be followed South in either social or political Africanization. So cial, I say; for I read in the Bmtnd Table that not merely is this Africanization pol luting jury box and ballot-box, but it is, with the poverty and repression South, pol luting their homes. Miscegenation has begun. In one town of 10,000 inhabitants, that paper reports that not fewer than six ty or seventy young white women, cast out of employment by the destruction of the factories, are openly living as the mistress es of negroes! It was for just such mis cegenation that God drowned the world by the deluge. Thus, politically and so cially, this deterioration of our society be gins. The white race which has carried civilization, education, science, refinement, and Christianity over the whole world, whose triumphs with the pen, pencil and chisel, from the golden ages of Greece and Rome whose inventions in compass, steam and telegraph have imbound the world in a zone ot light whose heroism in war and graces in peace have made this star worthy even the Divine Presence this race ot self-government, energy and advancement, is supplanted by a race whose progress has not been marked by a single evidence of civilization for the tnousands of years they have held the rich plains ot their native continent ! But again, suppose the Radicals fail to foist negro equality and suffrage iu the South, by the Reconstruction bill. They have boasted they have the entering wedge; and that by Cougress they will undertake in the States ; North and South. They have adopted it in New York, but refused to submit it to a separate vote. Their po litical convention at Syracuse adopted It; and since they will not or cannot do it bv States they will do it bv breaking their oatns to tne constitution. Are the people of New York ready tor the question ? If tne people are not tuny aroused Dy these political and social problems, perhaps they will be by considering the pecuniary situa tion. We have already authentic details of the cost of registration. It will average over a million a State before done. It is estimated at fifteen millions. The elections will cost five millions more. The cost of the army this scanold ot civil government will be forty-five millions, making about sixty-five millions; aud all iu considera tion ot the exquisite picture of Barbor county electors, and barbaric dances to the music of cane reeds and the rattlinsr of chance musketry. Sixty thousand more for the Bureau, and in all over one hun dred and twenty-five millions or double. tor these negro extravaganzas alone, what cost for the whole nation under Demo cratic rule before the war ! How long will these burdens, added to those already fund ed in the public debt be borne ? Can you wonder that repudiation is not merely whispered, but talked loudly? . Who bears those burdens? Nominally every one: really labor; nominally 16.000 articles, really paid for at increased prices, tax add ed, by toil. Legislation has not only been corrupt, but it has been for the benefit of pet classes. Capital is exempt and labor pays; the result is fiscal tyranny, even more hateful than military or negro tyran ny. You have but one remedy. It is in the registry and at the ballot. Fail not on either. As your friend, I advise you to vote the Democratic ticket, and begin the redemption of this land from its burdens and its tyrannies! God help you to add to the chorus ot victory whicli welcomed the tidings of victory in Connecticut and Cali fornia, Ohio and Pennsylvania: aud thus arrest the tide of black dominion, military tyranny and financial ruin! Mr. Cox's speech was attentively listened throughout, the speaker being freauent- cheered by the vast audience. , . . Good Jokb. We heard, a few davs since. good joke on a couple of United States paymasters irom inuiana, now stationed In New Orleans. They were keeping house together and had a negro boy named Bob in their employ. One day the aforesaid boy was standing on the front steps when an old chum came along and savs : "Hallo Bob, where are you living now: jjod replied : "I'se boardin, down here with a couple of Yankee officers." Major T. happened to hear tbe above remark and immediately dis missed his boarder Indianapolis Herald. .. It seems there was another accident at the Uoosao tunnel some weeks ago. The nrsr. uoiDer laid in the platform erected every twenr.v feet, la n.ni iinnn fn. men on it, by a single rope, and then shot Into the holes prepared for it in the sides of 1,A Bhnh 1 . . . .. uc oimii, a wotk oi mucn uimcuity in tne oviuruai .ices. ju tiiisuav, tne limner nan been landed safelir. when'nne ,r tv.a mn caught the heel of his boot and went over nc omc. as ue icii ne caugnt tne man next bim, who in his turn laid hold of the third, who clutched the fourth, a sailor, and all were suspended over the abyss, 100 feet from the TOCkV hnt.tnm. htr thn loot- man nhn clasped his legs about the timber. Soon one dropped, and a dull thud told of his fate. Than kA . 1 I a i . , iicjli, lunuweu. ana groans snowed that he was not killed outright. The third would have suffered a like fate but for the sailor, who instructed him to swing himself so as to grasp the timber with his feet and draw himself up. The sailor followed, sig nalled for help, and was finally brought np safe with his companion. One of the others was found a broken mass, and the other lived but a few hours after being drawn up.
