Fellow citizens: In this discus sion of public affairs upon which I, to-uay, enter 1 shall i:ot hope to es cape, fully, from the bias of view and feeling, which so besets us all in the circumstances now surround ing me. I shall, however, at least aim, in all that I say, at securing to mvselt the sell-respeet which can only arise from a eoiiciousncss of having striven after truth unselfish ly, and from considerations of duty I have decided to begin this can vass by an attempt to present the leading lacts bearing upon the in qniry, what has been and what is yet to be. WORK OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IN THE UNITED STATES. I selected this theme, to-day, for two reasons. Unc of these is the obvious one, that this party is now again asking the suffrages of the American people and the continu ance of its ascendency in the gov ernment. Another reason for this selection of my theme is that, in our press and speeches, this 3-ear, I notice what strikes me as a disposition to "protest too much;" that our mis sion as a party is not ended, which makes me fear, that there inay be forming amongst us a feeling that those affairs whose coming brought the party into being, have come, been accomplished and passed into the irrevcrsable institutions of our country; thatthe future affairs of the republic must be' such as the lie- publican party was neither organ ized upon, nor agrees upon, and that for these reasons, the time has come when it must and should pass away. If this feeling is forming, and is, as Xthintit is, wrong,-then its growth must bs most mischievous; and I select my subject to-day, to aid in the effort to check it; and, whether it exists or not, to show that it ought aot to exist. The elements which enter into this question are, of course, too many and complex to be fully con sidered in this speech. They are not too many or difficult, however, to be presented in their main and decisive views. WHAT THE CHARACTERIZING ELEMENT OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. , That clement of our politics which, in the past has made the dis tinction and characterizing differ ence between the two parties is that thing, or rather family of things, which I may indicate by the words "human liberty as guaranteed by tlte 'equality of man before the law." At. different stages of our party's opinions upon this subject, the de gree of difference between the two' parties, has, of course, varied. Still, the difference, upon this and its kindred subjects, is that which marked the line between the parties. Now let me remind you, citizens, that if the right of man, as a man to be held, b' his own country's laws, as, not only "free," but "equal" also, to his fcllowman be, indeed, in danger, or even in dispute or doubt, then the disbandonment, or even the defeat of the only party, which de fends the right of equality would be a catastrophy most appalling. In the presence of such an inquiry as this whether the equality of Ameri can citizenship is indeed recognized and secure, how dwarf and disap pear all the other questions we dis cuss to-day. The people this year hold their elections, and consider these ques tions, as to the value there is in ad mitting man, as man, aud because he is a man, to an equal part in ma king and administering govern ments, as well as in lighting for them, in the presence of events mar- vclously suggestive ot what that value is. I allude to the events of the present war in Europe. These events it is true, are transpiring up on another continent than ours; but then they arc events in which, none the less than in our own late war, the actor is man. How such a spec tacle as is seen to-day in the beauti ful valleys of Franco compels the world to apprehend the prices men pay for all governments, even bad ones! How especially docs the spectacle compel upon the world new apprehensions of the values of good ones to realize of what vnl ues are those laws which make men's voice in determining what his gov ernment flhall be or do, to bo in ex act proportion to the part of the government's wars and other bur dens which he must. bear. There you see, in France, a peo pic of forty millions. They are as brave and generous as any on this planet. They are as industrious, and frugal as any. Tliey live in vallcysr'alongrivors and .upon hill anil mountain slopes, as boautiful-as God' ever bestowed, in. his,boundlefs love,' upon any portion' of.liis 'cljiiy ui trn. oome -Classes 01 men are as intelligent, in1 all departments of knowledge as any on the earth. In some departments of science they lead the civilization of the nine teenth century. Even their peas antry are as intelligentr as their wants and their, government will permit them to be. For many of the elements of a great people the French have the admiration" of mankind. Look now at that peo ple. Why! .The hellish apparition astounds the Universe, and man kind, transported to its presence by the modern miracle of the telegraph, stands there, appalled transfixed; witb; horror. IVo millionsof men men, who like all their brothers, have hearth-stones, children have muscles, nerves, bones, blood, hearts just like the rest of us, have "rights just like the rest of us, are caught up; at the back of one bad man and his ministers, and dashed into the vor tex of a war where, three thous and hecatombs, or more, of human victims have gone down in one huge and internal maelstrom ot human bones and blood. And why.-1 The world the gov ernments the race human nature everywhere, as it sees, cries out, in one universal, spontaneous cxcla mation of agonized horror why And who has answered? TVho can? And as the diplomat, and the cabinet and the philosopher, aud the states man, and all people have stood in this bewildered enquirement, why? the answer they have wrought out, and which is the one most credit able to the Government of France of all they have found possibly the one most near the truth is that it is because this man and cabinet de signed to bring back from Berlin to Paris the political center of the Continent, and by the eclat of that, to fasten upon the great French people the personal government of a boy! .Lotus, as we go to-day to the business of studying out what is well for the future of our country, look thoughtliuly at this picture, and then turn from it to that one which displays how we, too, threw into these same consuming arms of this inolocliof war a million or more of our children and five billions of their hard earned treasures. And after you have studied well our own recent spectacle so recent that the smoke of the sacrifice has not j-et ceased to go up, or its odor to taint the air then ask yourselves what ice bought with this "great price How often aud strangely has this startling question been put in America! And what questioners they are who indict the .catechism You are asked it y the tears not dried yet of your own desolated ones, and by the inky vestments of their immense sorrow, not j-et put oft. You are aslced it by the grave stones of your slam, and by the bleaching skeletons of the unburied asked it by the charred ruins of our own cities, villages and homes, and of all of our war-swept battle fields asked it by the huge burden of debt, and taxation which yet re main remain, the legacy of this great calamity; and you are asked it by the voices ot all the people who have endured this calamity. It is, Republicans, only within a few days, only since the proclama tion of the 30th of March last, that we felt that we had attained unto the last, perliaps best, "freedom" which we bought with that "great price, It was when, by its first Secretary, the Republic proclaimea the Amend ment had become "valid to all in tents and purposes as part of the Qonstitution of the United States," by which all of the people are not mly free but equal also. Only since then have we felt assured that the prices we have paid were not too arge for the gains which' they brought us. Never 'till now have we been fully assured that Heaven had yielded to us the answer, in full measure, to the questionings of this strange array of our interrogators; because never before had the liber ties and rights of all the people been based upon both the liberty and the equality of all the people, were we certain that any of the prior gains from our great sacrifice were secure or perpetual. "When that event had come, you said with gratitude and exultation, "it is finished," and is enough. It is to this work "finished ' as the past of our great party, that I design to look to-day for the evi dences of its title to the confidence of the country in its future rule; and it is the resistence to every part 1 this work, by your political ad- ersary, that 1 asK you to look m deciding upon their claims to that confidence of their county-. a "A NATION." It is because those results and ac quisitions of that physical conflict with the rebellion, and of the mor al conflict which has followed it, all belong to one family, are not only near of kin to each other but are each magnitudes and values that we loose all just notions of degrees and differences of magnitude, when we attempt to decide which of the achievments attained by these two conflicts is greatest Hut look at that one which re newed and preserved the Union. Even throw out of your estimates of its magnitude the idea that it in fact saved the life of the Govern-' meiit itself, and delivered all the peo ple Horn that unnamed and unuain- able catastrophe which is but poor- luntcd by the words anarchy desolation ruin. Look at tiie contrasts which you can already see in material and mor results between that Union winch was born of these our two recent conflicts, and that Union which our party received in 18G1 a legacy from the Democratic party. That one had in it, as alleged, a right of se cession it had in it, even accord ing to the ineerpretation of the last message of the last Democratic President, that it was wrong for States to go out of the Union, but equally unlawful to keep them in had in it what made the Union a partnership of States, made it less a rope-of sand, made it a myth. ConfincVoiir view of this change, for the prcscntvto the consequences ol the tact that the change has made us- A Nation. Like the work of some strange magic we passed being what we now are, from bein: the laughing stock of the world ; nation -making claim by prodigious pretence and "spread, some sort metaphysical right to be, and yet nation which was exhibited to the world-bV that message of its chief magistrate, and by the dogmas his party, as proclaiming to the highestjtreason ever arrayed against a nation-s life,- that the treason was the' bnliiCthlrig in the government that way lawful, and that the na tion's claim of right to be was ghastly jest. . Where-.wc are now m the rank and sisterhood' of States will be more fully indicated as I proceed, and only say jiowjupon this subject, that we nave passed lrom tnat rayicss and unalle'viated ruin where seces sion; slavery,-and Democratic rule naa precipitated us, to mo uncnai lenged first rank of the nations, both in ourtha'terial and moral dig nity and power. This, is the first event in the record of the Republican party.tq which I to-day. point you RESTORATION OF THE STATES. Yast, inconceivable, as is the im portance of these parts of the work of our party which has just gone into history, they are, in an impor tant political sense, wholly trivial compared with the magnitude one yet remaining to be told. of allude to the restoration of the re volted States. When "war's' deso lation" had swept past, and its night had lifted from the scenes, where during four sad years, its darkness and its havoc had reigned, what a spectacle was before you! Ten States lay there in ruin! Aud what' a ruin! In the elements of wrecked power and greatness it was sublime, even in chaos. Jii the com pleteness of the disordered over throw, it was terrible; and in the all consuming sweep of unsubdued and treasonous passions, it was still simply appalling. There they lav ghastly, desolate, drear, but impli cate States in law, as was alleged. but States in fact, without one ele ment of a State except land and people the land black with the fires of war, except that uninhabited, and the people all invincible in their treason, except the slaves, and they not "people," but chattels. Such was the task to which the legisla tive architect was invited by your demand that these States should be, at once restored to their more than pristine grandeur all restored, foundation and dome pillar and archtriave. You, and your Constitution de manded, in terms; that they should be "Republican." But how could they be unless based on the votes of the people; f lou demanded that they should be loyal, but how could they be when the people were dis loyal? You demanded that there should be no more treason sent, by these states, to ywir senate and House, to contrive under the cover of official oaths, the overthrow of the Government; and to execute the treason, by emyloyment of the Gov ernment's own offices and powers, But how could you prevent the send ing, when both the senders and the sent were the authors,and unchanged friends of the baffled treason ( You demanded that, in the new States, the laws should protect, alike, all of the people against the universal as sassinations and murders that had crimsoned, with the blood of patri ots, the very earth and rivers of all that sunny land, But how could your demand be secured, when the only laws you had, rendered all loyal men cither enemies or slaves, and when they who must make and ex ecute new ones were both the au thors and unchanged advocates of the assassinations and wrongs you meant to prevent. Such, faintly, -was the Work of Reconstruction to which, my fellow Republicans, yoa came! How fear ful it was in its difficulties, respon sibilities and magnitudes! When doing, you thought it was done slowly perhaps badly. Now, as you look back you wonder the world wonders that it was done at all. But it is done finished fin ished finished. There it stands, now, the "New Union." No alien, no foe "within its vast dominion, be cause, it rests now upon the equal citizenship, equal rights, and there fore equal love of all its children. This, Americans, is the last act in that drama, of ten years enacting. I called it the last. But is it? Let us ., as of are ... n. 1 the in the in it, we r. me ism the llCt i " the , to thia 1 MONEY. Let us go for a moment to another lew: You have collected of public revenues since June 30th, 18G3, $2, 824,281,038 38. This is an average early receipt of S 103,-1C8,719 7C. During the same time, from even' source, Great Britain collected on an average per year about $38G,0G3,-31-1 28. France collected, per year. little less than $372,000,000. Prus- na, in 186, (excluding her acquisi tions of .18CG) collected !fl2(,G97, 105 90. The United States collected from July 1st, 1SG9, to June 30th, 1870, (one year,) $108,831,373 42. Great Britain expends, for all pur poses, per year, on the avcrage,same as income, $33G,0G3,314 28. The total expenses of the Government of the united states for the year end ing 30th of June, 1870, was $291,- 40,122 94. Of this, in the same car, the interest upon our public debt was $127,G8G,154 28. The in terest and management of the en tire public debt of England was, in 1867, $12G,13.),G84 til. The United States have reduced their public debt, since the 1st' of March, 18G9, $15G,138,784 01. At the accession or William III. the debt of England was JCGG4',2G3. At the close or the French war it was 840,850,491. In 1807 it was 777,497,807. The public debt of Great Britain has not been materially reduced since 183G, . . the or in . ami ! t o the 4-1 c -i he our the ual, of the lts H0t it THE LESSON. I have alluded to these financial facts in our own history, in contrast with other nations, that I might, from them, derive certain hints, for all our people of all parties, of very great practical value, as calculated to increase our admiration or our own country's' greatness or resource and power; and especially to rccon cilatus to the financial administra tion or General Grant. First of all, our revenues are greater, in gold, than those of Great Britain by thirty-three millions of dollars per year, aim the first ing ts and this allowing to Great Britain several millions for extraordinary and temporary incomes, as for ex- ample from her China War indcm uiij, mm iuuuihu iiu uc- rive from the property and business of a country just escaped from war which desolated and destroyed 1. .. 1... r i 1 c . i -ii iuuuusiiie&suiuuu-iiuii, territorially, of the whole United States; and that of about one-fourth of its peo- I'"-' . Again, our income is the largest uuuccieu oy any civinzea state on the globe, by many millions. It three times greater than the ordin- ai) ic.eiiucs ul tuat nation, (xtus- sia) which to-day holds the over whelming and unchallenged military XT-- th .Contment; Next, that Xii,f XfXi i.-i that debt or the nation, which saved this grand life of the State, will be extinguished, principal and interest, in perhaps less than ten more years, should we remain at peace and con- tinue to be governed as we now are. Thus we will be delivered from one hundred and twenty-seven and half millions per year of our 'taxa tion, nearly one-hair or our entire annual expenses. Add to this the reuuctioii 01 tne exuenses 01 our pension list, (which was last year $28,077,600 02), and also, the re the war, which will be by the death of pensioners, &c, rapidly dimin isned, or cease entirely; and we shall soon escape from full half of 11 , Tin nrpwnr dvtioncpa nt Tho irnrorn. . ... i a -au , ment.
