NEW YORK Oct. 20. 1868.
Fellow Citizkxs: It is a great privl
lefe and duty to address vou on the eve
ot the jrreat battle which we are to tlirti''.
and whicn is to decide whether the uw
ernment ot this Republic is to remain foui
years more in the hands ot the iUdicai
party, or whether, by an energetic, united
ana last enort vou will wrer.t the powi-i
iron: its grasp, ana give to us, under
Democratic Conservative Administration
a Government based upon principles ol jus
tice, economy and Uoiistuuiiomil liberty
The issues ol the present campaign an
selt-evidtnt. luev appeal to the lutein
itence and patriotism ot every voter, in tht
inst unmistak-nble tepras; tney have bee
discussed by distinguished orators ot o
uirtv since the nomination of our randi
dates. What the Democratic partv intend
to do if placed in power by your suffrages.
To restore peace and union to our coun
try: "
To heal the wounds and sufferings caused
ov the rebellion: . :
To give to the people of the South th
right to which they are entitled und r the
Constitution, and by wh'ch alone we can
bring back prosperity and quiet totnatau
tractea section;
To reduce materially our military f n
nival establishments, kept up now on at
immense scale at an ennrmons cost:
To introduce Into every department ol
Government the strictest economy :
And to develop by an equitable system
ot imports and taxation the growing re
sources ot our country.' and thus place the
Federal tiuanceson a stable and solid foot
ing, and to pave the way to a gradual and
site return to specie payment.
. We are charged ty the Radical party
the party of violence and usurpation
which, for the lat-t four years, to prolong
its existence, has set at naught the Consti
tution and the fundamental principles o
our Government that we intend revolu
tion and the defiance of established l iw.
The accusation is unfounded and absurd
It can not be entertained ft r a moment bj
any intelligent voter, who has the most su
perficial knowledge of the history ol lii.
countrj . ' The Democratic party can point
to every page of it record. It has ntvi i
violated a single obligation ot the funda
mental compact by which these United
itates entered into the family of nations
Its watchword, in peace as in wir, has been
and always will be. "The Uki jj, Tm
man nor set of men, however high the
might be placed by the suffrages of th ii
lellow ci iz-tns, can ever expect to receive
the support ot this great conservative par
ry in any revolutionary attempt Lainst
established laws..- The ballot-box and t'n
-upreme will of the American people are
the only means of redress to which wt
Fellow-Denaccrats, you are fighting fora
a good and righteous cause! iou have
or your leader a tried statesman a patriot
who stood by the Union in its darkest horn;
a man qnally beloved lor the purity of his
private character as tionrreu tor his public
virtues. Opposed to you are the men who
have subverted the structure of their own
system ol lepresentative self-government,
vindicated to' the world by more than hall
a century ot prosperity and greatness; the
men who have increased our enormous
debt by profligacy and corruption unpar
alleled; the men who, in two successive
LOUjresses,riave demonstrated their incom
peteucy to diminish our burdens by econ
omy or apportion with equity ; the men
who havrf so distributed our burdens that
they prt-ss with excessive weight upon the
labor and industry of the country, making
rich men richer, by making poor men
poorer. .
Opposed to you are the men who have
denied tor three years ol peace and will
coi tinuc to deny, until 3-our voles arrest
them self-government to the people ol
ten State; the men who have taken away
the power of our Chiel Magbtrate to in-
ir-a faithful execution of the laws, or to
command the arm' and navy of the United
stabs; ttiH men. who did their worst to
expel tne President lrom the White House
toi obeying faithfully the behests ot your
supreme law; the men who. being con
srions of their crimes, dreaded to have the
Supreme Coin t declare their quality, and
therelorc abridged its jurisdiction and si
lenced its voice the men who have usurp
ed-and are grasping and wielding powers
uot , possessed to-Uay Dy ai.y monarch
among civilized nations,
"Against tlnse mi-i. 'heir crimtsin th
past their nefarious designs in the lutun
you are soon to make one final aim de
termined onslaught. Four years ago we
tailed to expel them from power, thougl
we predicted then, as we now predict, their
incompetency to give "the people peace.;
declaring them as we now declare the r v
oluiiouary purposes ot their most active
leaders who ruled the party as they wohl'l
rule the country with a despotic sway !
But these lour rears have justified oui
warning. Our worst predictions then ar
their enactments now; wnat we learev
they have done; the revolution has inadt
tc ady progress.
Onco more we call every patriot to join
our ranks! If the people will now rise ii
their majesty aud . might, they can savi
their institutions aud rebuild them. J;
they are supine ai d regar.'less ol their sa
cred interests mi much in the last font
ytars has been accomplished and so much
in the next four j ears may eaily be aecom
plished, that no obstacle will then b re
naiiiing, that the revolution will have be
come a fixed fact, the structure ot our Gov
ernment will have been completely re
modeled. It may be a Government still,
but it will no longer be your representa
tive sell-government. '
For this final struggle, then, ffllow
Democrats of the United States, let us in
vlgorate every muscle and jierve every
heart. The time is short: the loe is stub
born and desperate; our victory would bi
the death-blown to the Republican party.
It could have been held together by no
other nomination; it can not survive yout
successful assault. One victory is enough;
yourtriumph in November will finally re
establish the Union and the Constitution
for another generation ot men; it will re
store peace and good order to - the South
prospeiity to the North, aud a wise am
irugal rule to both. The great prize i.
wortliy your most strenuous endeavor
Our ranks are unbroken, our courage un
abated. Once more to the breech, aud tbi
ilme for victory.
- By order of Democratic National Com.
Don't Jollity Much.
Attempts have been made by the Re
publicans In various citiesof Ohio to jollify
over the victories won by that party on tin
13ch inst. If the victories had been satis
factory in all particulars in their sizj and
nature there would have been no difii
culty in getting up big demonstrations in
honor of the event. In every instance,
however, so far as' our observation has ex
tendi d, "these attempted jollifying demon
strations have been most signal failures.
The attempt in this city did not even risi
to the dignity ot a failure. There was
nothing of it at all.
This very circumstance conveys the idea
that Republicans would have felt fully" as
Weil had the Democrats been successful
Uiidoubtedl there are many Republicans
in every locality who want a change of
d irties In the management oi the t ederal
Q .vernnient; but have not themselves the
courage to : vote for such change." Work,
then, Democrats, to give them the change
in the Executive they so much yearn lor.

xprfpsed a f'Tvent hope that however the

Buffalo to-morrow evening. 1 can there
forv speak to you to-night but very brieflj
but I shall be followed by tf.'ose'who mor
tbly than myself can discuss the great is
-lies of thecainpaign.'
Nearly four years ago the war whicl
ravaged our land ceased. Nearly foui
years ago the affairs of the country wen
nonfilled to the administration of the au
thorities. We found at the close of t'oi
great contest that . a large section of oui
ountry had been disorganized in its in
iustry, its social structure and in its moral
condition, as the result of that war. If wi
rurned from the South, that portion whicl
had been overcome by the valor ot our
troops, and took into consideration tht
omlit ion of the whole country, we found
it burdened by an enormous debt. We
found that our carrying trade had beei
swept from the oceans of the world. W
found the business ot our country perplex
ed by all the uncei tailzies which overhung
its luture business pursuits. Cheers. H i
meet now for the purpose ol determining
whether those who have administered tht
affairs ot the Uniii d States during the last
four years have governed it wisely anc'
Well. -, . , - - ,
They come before the people of this
country asking to be reinstated in power.
They say that they have so controlled it
interests that they are entitled to the con
ridence ot the people. They claim thai
their measures have been wise and judic
ious, and that they have tended to advanc
the interests and the welfare of the Repub
lie. In their Convention tin; congratulate!1
i he people upon the success ot theii
f lu mes of reconstruction.
The quest iou now presentt d to the voter
of this country is simply this: 'Arc yoi.
Sit is tied with the conduct ot those wIp
iave conducted thn affi-.l s of the countrj?
Cries of "No. no!'" and cheers Are they
entitled io your confidence? Cries of "No,
no!"l nave they so administered you
liuames that your taxes have been light
ened as they might have been? Cries ol
No. no !"' Have they relieved the laboi
ot the country from the great burden
which rested upon i ? Cries of "No, nol"
Can the business men of the country, who
conduct its capital, say that they repose
such confidence in the wisdom of those
who now administer its a flairs that if they
shall again be placed in power they can go
on in confidence in their transactions?
Cries of " No, no !" and cheers.
Thn answer of this great audience is, and
I believe the answer of the people of thi
country will be, "no !"' The day was when
the American people were proud when
they were counte l among the foremost na
tions of the earth as a people largely en
gaged in the commerce of the world.
Cheers. We do not find that this great
snl-jet-t has during tl.e past three years at
tracted even the attention of those who ad
minister the affairs of our land. Which
ever way we look, whatever class we ad
dress, whatever individual interi sts we con
sider, we find that at this time the policj
of Che government is such that labor ij de
pressed, business is perplexed, and the In
tnre is full ol uncertainty. Now. why ha
this administration failed ? Why hav
they come so far short of the fulfillment oi
their tititi s that at the end of nearly fotv
years of peace we find ourselves still em
barrassed, hampered and opposed by tha
same condition of things which we found
at the close ol the late war? -
They claim in their National Convention
that they had a right, to congratu
late th - country on the success o
their re onstructioh scheme. Tney claimed
that our financial system had been im
proved. They claimed that the heavy bur den
of debt which rests upon the land wa
about to be lightened. Thus far in tin
canvass these claims have been discussed
Their speakers as well as those who spoke
lor tne uemoctauc party, nave been en
gaged in la iug before you their view
upon thest. subjicts, and what is the re-
S'i completely have our opponents beei
driven from the field on these points thai
hey n iw find it necessary to change front
Wi are admoi.ished that a change ot front
on the eve ot battle is a dangerous thing.
After their congratulations .. that their
scheme of reconstruction was a success,
what do they now say when they sr.
pressed on the financial q iestion, when
thev hear the complaint of the laborer, un
der the bond taxation, and of the business
men at the perplexities which surrounr'
them? They attempt to turn away tin
public mind from the consideration of thes
things. They attempt once more to fire tin
Northern heart against the people of the
Southern States, by saying that the spirit ot
rebellion still exists In its lull force. It that
is true, It it is tiue that disorder still pre
vails ail over the South, if it is true that
the spirit of rebelliou yet lingers, if it is
true that it is necessaiy to tax the peopl
in order to maintain great armies, what be
comes of their boast and congratulation
rhat their reconstruction acts have beei
successful? They find now that It is nec
essary, in order to turn away the public at
tention from the pressure that is brough'
to bear upon tht in. by the arguments upon
the financial questions which have been ad
vanced upon our side, to revive once more
the issues of the past, to keep alive that
spirit of sectional hate which would plunge
the country again into bloody war. Driven
from the field of argument upon ail the
points upon which they placed themselves
at the outset ot tnis canvass, tney nave now
assumed a different position, and attempted
to prevent the people ot this country rom
nutting new men into power oy charging
chat such a change threatens the peace of
the land, and that there is reason to tear.
I you elect a Democratic President aud
Vice President, that we should again be
Iragged into all the evils of civil war.. Up-
n what is this charge lounded? Why, lor
the last six years the charge brought against
or party and our candidates was that we
vould never consent to any government
which was notoirectel by or in accord
nice with the Constitution. Cheers. For
more than lour years 1 was charged with
hieing a man untrue to my country, which
I love and am true to its n ig, wnose honor
cherish in luy inner heart. luneers.J
Writ ? Because in my private lile, in as
ioiniiUtres like this and in the exicutive
ch tir of state, I demanded that the people
should have their uonstituttonai rigt.c, aud
that the Government stiouiu proceed onlv
iccording to Constitutional modes. Tre
mendous cheering. It was for this reason
i ,J for this alone that these imputations
vwere brought against me cheers 1. and now
these same men come before the public and
ry to alarm the people witn the idea thai
it w succeed in this election the peace o'
our land will be perilled. Is there any-
hii.u' in the history ot tne democratic
party during its long continuance in pow-
- su there anything in its conduct dur
ing the war, when we tilled our armies
A'ith the menioers oi tnai, pnri, wucu we
tood by administrations politically op
posed to u?; is there nything inouractious
or teachings since the war that makes us
pen to this charge of being men who do
not seek the peace aud prosperity ot our
ountry and the welfare ot its people?
Cries of "No, no!" and cheers. -
But it is said that if we get into power
we shall with violence destroy all that they
claim to have done rightfully, legally and
constitutionally. Now, as I said before, we
aeek not only Constitutional ends, but w
mean in whatever we do to follow const!
Mirinnal modes of action. Cheers. Who
is it that makes the charge i What do you
see? A Gereral In one of our Southern
States, acting under the advisement and in
accordance with the sentiment ol the Re
publican party, and a subordinate of its
candidate tor the Presidency, has recently
put forth an order in which. , he directs that
at the coming election the soldiers in the
South, In the preservation of peace, need
not be governed by the technicalities ot the
law. Law has no technicalities'. The pro
ceedings of a court are sometimes techni
cal, but for the first time in our laud we
hear declarations that the language or re
quirements of the laws may be treated
as technicalities, to ' be set aside.
not by your Courts, but by military power.
It was never before heard in thisdaud that
any Court had the right or power to set
asiue uiu language or directions oi tne
statute on the ground that they were tech
nical directions. The day was wnen the
mere assumption ot a military olbcer to si
in Judgment up n the laws wou d havegcv
erned the whole people. But here the pro
position goes lurcher than that. They are
not only to decide what laws are. but the
are to take it upon thems- 1es to disregard
the provisions ot these laws, if they scelu
to claim that they are technical.
What are the laws which are thus to be
trampled upon? You have heard it
charged against me and against Gene al
tJluir, that it we ciuld obtain power we
would trample upon the Coustitulioi
and laws, aud yet at the very moment they
make tuese charges, one ot their own par
tizans, acting under their own i. fluences,
is trampling these very laws under toot by
a direction that his subordinates shall not
feel themselves bound in their action, i
they see fit to regard any of the provisions
oi tnese laws as technical. Cheers J
Let us look a little lurther atthiscuurze.
I repel with indignation the suggestion
tuat atiy member of the Democratic partv
or that party as an organization, or that
myseit .as individual ot that party, will
i verdo violence to law or order. Cheers 1
Let us inquire into the reasonableness ot
tnis charge. Suppose the pjople ot the
United Stales see fit to elect a Democratic
Pnsideut, voice "they will," aud
cheers) and a Democratic Vice President
What then ? Is your Government changed:
Do we hold unqualified power? . Could we
mane war." Uouid we control the legisla
tion of the country? What will our power
be under the laws, as they now stand? You
have seen a chief executive of these United
States shackled by legislation; you have
seen him arrainged as a criminal before
the couit; you have heaid the majority ol
that tribunal pronounce him a guilty man,
and he would have been deposed from pow
er had they not lacked one vote to make
two-thirds of the Senate to sanction that
action. Those statutes, laws which to-dav
shackle and hinder the sction ot Andrew
Johnson, would equally shackle a Demo
craiic Executive if he succeeded in this
election. Our Republican friends willion
trol the Senate. They will control the
army,' for their -candidate Is the General
who commands that army.
How absurd, then, is this cry that there
is danger from an Executive thus shackled
and powerless, even if he desired to do
wrong. . Cheers
It may nc asked, then, what do we gain
il we chaBge the executive and place one
of a different party in the Executive chair,
when his powers will be so limited. Just
thiF, my friends: While he can affirma
tively do but little, he can do much to
check the unwise action of the party now
in power; he can do much to protect tin
lebor of this country from unwise legisla
tion ; he can do much to check in tiie fu
ture the dangerous policy which threaten
ed the dearest and most vital interests ol
the country. Cheers 1 BuX more than
that, it is necessary for the welfare of the
American people that there shall be given
a popular verdict which will say that thi
policy of the niPn !n power is not such as
meets their approval. The men in powei
h;ve no where established a successful
system of reconstruction, nor done anv
thing to lighten the burdens which op
pressed the people of the North. TCheers
My ttrcngth, my time, and this vast au
dience prevent my attempting to addrtss
you at length or' in any detail upon this
great su'.joct. We ask you now that hv
yonr votes you shall put some checks upon
the unqualified power exercised hy tin-
congressional party. If we do well in the
place you put us. and our conduct shall be
such that we gain your confidence, then
we shall ask you at another ri ne and a-
future election to go on with the reform
an1 lo-tnstat" in full pow-r thai great
glorious Democratic pirry wht -h is identified
w ith all that is glorious in the history
of our country.
I have but one word more to sav, and
tnen I will give place to my friend Mr.
Kernan. I implore every man within the
sound of my voice, whatever his political
views may b?, before he casts his ballot
this election, to seriously ask hiinsell
whether it is not better for this whole
country that political power shall in some
degree be divided between political organi
zations? . I ask those who in their hearts
seek the welfare of our land and the per
manency of our Constitution, is ir, well and
safe, for another four years, to ive unre
strained, unchanged and unqualified
power to those who have failed
during the past, lour years
briug cnir affairs into a sat staetory condi
tion. We do not ask ynu to oive us unre
stricted power. You could not if yon
wouli'. All you can do 8' this election
to place someone in the Exei-utive ciair
who can clu ck.tlie ex'-essc if the Congres
sional party, and to administer a rehuke
those who, giving way to passion and act
ing upon a policy of hate and discord, have
prolonged the difficulties of our country;
have continued its burdens ot taxation;
have oppressed its labors and have made
it3 people uncertain as to its future
- Itru-tt at when thiseh ction shall have
terminated it shall be the judgment ot the
peop'e of the United States that the inten.
tion of the fra triers of our Constitution
shall be carried out; that power shall
such degree be divided between the in
political organisations, so that they can
hold each other in check, and that it shall
neither be in the power of the Republican
or of the Democratic partv to plunge onr
country into the evils of civil war, tven
they could tin'l it in their heaiti to do
thing go nnwise. so wicked and so unpat
riotic. Cheers. .
I thank you, my friends, for this great
exhibition of your kind partiality to my
self. From my heart I thank you for this
demonstration of kindness and considera
tion. It strengthens my arm and makes
me feel a confidence that he who with sin
cerity and humbleniss tries to serve his
country and benefit his fellow i-itiz ;ns will
ever meet with a warm welcome from those
whose Interests he deeply cherished. Tre
mendous cheering. .
