. The presence of ladies at the speak
itig Monday robbed Harlan of half
Ids speech, by squelching his vulgar
anecdotes.
Wnirx Gen. II.uslan took to the law
and politics it was the ruination of a
first-class "cud man" for a negro min
strel show.
Oxe of the mysteries of matrimony
is concealed in tlii Let a. man, who-e
wife dins in his cars from morning till
night the aggravating assurance that he
"ain't worth shucks," get killed on a
railroad, and see how quick she'll sue
the company for S50,0Q0 damages.
A LErrciiFirxn couple came over to
Hartford the other day to .see the city
.iglifes Passing by a fruit-store on Jrar
kct street, a bunch of bananas attract
ed their notice. "Well!" exclaimed he,
"these Hartford people do 'beat bob
tail. Jest look, S.ir., at them pickles
jiailed to a stick!"'
Tiikhe's all the difference in the
-world between Hartford and Calhoon
wives. A Hartford man houjrht his
wife a new dress, and when he presented
it to her she put her arms around his
neck and called him a "treasure."' A
Calhoon man Ixnight his wife a nice
dress, but she did not waste any sweet
ness until she had opened it, when she
turned on him sharply and said he had
just about as much taste as a tobacco
worm.
If there is any Democrat in the State
who entertains fears for McCreaky in
the stump contest witli Harlan, let
him dismiss them. Lat Monday, at
this place, our gallant little standard
bearer proved himself more than a
match for the Sitjtted Tail of the
Kentucky Sioux. The latter will not
bring home a solitary scalp this hunt.
Sorrow and disappointment will hang
the black totem at the door of his wig

in August
The "Big Judge" of the Kockport
police court evidently knows how to
make a distinction with a difference.
Recently a witness in his court, who
was being unmercifully badgered by a
lawyer, turned to the the court and in
quired: "Jedge, h a saym of mill-dam a cus
iiiiY "Certainly not," responded his hon
or. The witness whirled upon the tor
menting lawyer, exclaiming: "Mill
dam my soul if I don't knock your mill
dam head"
"Here! Stop! Fined ten dollars!"
shouted the court.
"What fur, Jcdge?" demanded the
astonished witness.
"For contempt profane swearing in
the presence of the court."
"But, Jedge, 1 axed 3011 fa'r an'
Mjuar' cf a savin' of mill-dam was cus
sin', an' you sed p'ititcdly which it was

"The court sticks to that decision.

THE GUBERNATORIAL CANVASS.
jHcciEns of the Itivlil Aspirants tit
Our Courthouse Last MoiitSny.
The first meeting of the contestants
for the gubsrnatorial office occurred at
our courthouse last Monday. Notwith
standing the fact that the rains of the
previous day and night had presented
our farming community with an oppor
tunity to set out tobacco plants that wa
not to be neglected, aconsiderablecrowd
containing a for sprinkling of ladies '
assembled to hear the discussion.
The oratorical tourney was opened
b Colonel McCreary, at one o'clock,
who spoke for two hours. We did not
hear the first few minutes of his speech.
When wc entered the house he was
alluding to
THE WAR AND THE LOST CACSE.
He said: When the war ended and
the Confederate armies surrendered, I
laid aside the bitter feelings and preju
dices of the past and looked to the fu
ture. I and my coinrades-in-'trms fold
ed away in our hearts the memories of
the contest, and bowed in faithful alle
giance tothc United States government,
and were willing, and have been willing
from that day to thw, to stand by and
defend the country, its honor and pros
perity; and the men who rallied around
the Stars and Bars dttr'n" the late war
will rally now, its quick as any in the
State, to defend the Stare and Stripes
of the Union. He referred iu chaste
and beautiful language to the growth
and prosperity of the country, and will
ed upon all men of ever- political faith
and creed to stand bv it and contribnts
to its future success and greatness, U
pay of! its indebtedness, and rid our
selves of hard times and bring back to
the country and the people the glorious
condition of the good old days of yore.
KENTUCKY'S) DUTY.
He was astonished that the Republi
cans would hold on to certain of their
political ideas. In the contest now
coming on we have a theory of free gov
ernment presented on the one side, and
clas legislation, unequal taxation, cen
tralization, corruption, force bills, su
premacy of the military over the civil
power, anarchy, and despotism, on the
other. Kentucky, being the first to
speak in this great contest, ought to
give out no uncertain sound, but come
up solidh for right and justice and free
government, so as to wield a good and
wholesome influence in the Presidential
canvass of 187G.
THE THIRD TERM.
He referred to Grant's letter regard
ing the third term, and characterized it
as a very indefinite style of document:
a paper that would be construed by
Grant hinuelf as meaning that such a
state or condition of affairs would exi-t
is to neeeVsitatc his nomination for a
third term. Ho predicted that Grant
would be the next .Republican candidate
for the Presidency, and thought thai
General Harlan was making his pres
ent nice with a view to the second place
on the ticket with Grant. The (inc-
ral has been confined in a dry political
pasture for some time, and wants to
get into the green meadows and clover
fields of the Government. Washing
ton's letter in regard to the third term
was'easily understood, and had the right
ring; but Grant prevaricated.
LET HYOONES ISE RYfiONES.
He said he desired bygones to be by
gones, and was heartily in favor of con"
servatistu and reconciliation, and does
not believe the country can be saved
without these. He touching!' referred
to the recent joint-decoration of Federal
and Confederate graves at Memphis
:uid elsewhere, and hailed these acts as
otnensofa better day coming, when prej
udices and sectional hatreds would die
out, and universal good feeling prevail
throughout the land; when the manu
facturer of New England, the orange
grower of Florida, the cane producer of
Louisiana, the cotton planter, the to
baeco raiser, and farmer and miner and
mechanic would all enjoy equal rights
and privilege.-; and when cla-s and sec
tional legislation would lw abolidicd,
and all the people look tothc tlonstitu
tion strictly con-trued as the safeguard
to their liberties. I am ( hcexclainied)
tired of war and blood-hed, and want
to see the mineral, agricultural, relig
ious scholastic and scientific intere-ts
of the country developed ami fo-tered,
instead of its military genius I am
for laving down all of our animosities.

IMMir.RATIOX.
He took strong ground in furor of
immigration, recounted our vast resour
ces in glowing terms and said, a a
legislator of Kentucky, he had voted
i for all laws looking to this end. He
I was oppo-cd to keeping out foreign im
migrants f"" we could all trace our
iineage hack to foreign blood. He re
ferred to the geological survey now in
progress which would, through the ef-
( liciency of Prof. Shaler, soon show up
the vast resources ol our State, which
will draw immigration to us. Ho wa
jirotid of the f.K-t that he aided an 1 re
sisted in the passage of the ecological j
bill. He charged that the ltt'publicaus
by their cry of "outrages" and "ku
klux," and their resolutions in their
conventions that there was 110 security
to life, limb and property here had kept
thou-andsof immigrants from our State.
He aflirmcd that Kentucky was as free
from outrages and disorder as any
State in the "Union, and said tho Re
publicans were not resoluting about tho
outrages of Pennsylvania, Illinois, and
other States under Republican rule
where disorders prevail. lie augured
that if immigration were secured Ken
tucky had a brilli int future before her;
that she would at no di-tant period be
come one of the great manufacturing
States of the land. If the Republican
would only cease their howling about
outrages and kuklux, foreign immigra
tion would soon pour in upon us. and
our vacant lands speedily become trans
formed to splendid farms and beautiful
and happy homes. 11c referred to the
successful exertions of Governor Les
lie in suppressing lawles-ness, and said
his patriotic conduct had not lDen sur
passed, if equalled, by any State Exec
utive. If I am elected, he said, I will
u.-e every legal power at my command
to preserve law and order and peace,
and throw the fullest protection about
the live- and property of citizens.
CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION.
He said he was willing to trust the
people. He had favored the bill for a
constitutional conventon, but reserved
tohini.-clf the right of an individual, if
he should sec proper by that time and
should discover any danger ahead to
vote against the calling of the conven
tion, or the constitution it might adopt.
The constitution needed some changes,
and he knew of no better time to make
them than while the Slate wa- under
Democratic control, forit would besafer;
but it had proven otherwise when con
stitutions had ecn changed in State
under Radical control.
THE COMMON .SCHOOL QUESTION.
He said this question demanded our
serious con-ideration. I have been al
ways, he said, the supporter and earnest
friend of free education. The history
of the world's progress is tho history of
education. Washington spoke prophet
ically in regard to education. The
country's grandeur depends on the la
borer, the mechanic, the fanner, etc.,
more than on the silver-tongued otnJ-or
or the professional man. And tht.se
men, all who achieve eminence in their
avocations, are the rc-ults, the proud
trophies of our common school sy-tem
of education. The Radicals of Ken
tucky wanted to change our present sys
tem so as to embrace tho negro, and
their leaders in the Legislature attempt
ed to make the de-ired change to turn
our common scliools into mixed schools
(for such would have been the practical
result and working had they suc
ceeded in obtaining their measure).
They proposed to divide the school fund
with'the negroes who arc generally a
non-property-holdiug, non-producing
class, and thus throw upon the white
citizens of tho State the burthen and
expense of educating the colored chil
dren. I am oppo-cd to this whole
scheme, he exclaimed. I am oppo-cd
to admitting colored children to our
schools I am opposed to dividing the
school fund with the colored people.
I so voted in the Legislature, and will
ever opiwse it. I am emphatically for
applying the common school funds to
the u.-cs and for the purposes to which
they are now dedicated by the law. 1
want it distinctly understood, whilst I
occupy this position, that neither I nor
the Democractio party are opposed to
the education of the children of the col
ored people. On the contrary, it was
a Democratic Legislature which passed
an act devoting the taxes collected from
the colored citizens of the State to the
education of their children; while the
white citizens, in addition totheco-tof
keeping up our common schools, are
compelled to pay all the expense- of
the Suite government, which protect.
the colored people in person and prop
erty as well as the whites.
THE CIVIL KICIITS BILL.
He took strong crouinlsagain-t the civ
il rights I'ill, ami ilciiouncccl it as a meas
ure fraught with evil and unalloyed with
good. lie called upon General Harlan to
deli tic his position on this question. He
wanted to liiioiv if liis competitor favored,
opposed, or dodged the inca-iirc did he
stand with the Administration, favoring
it? or with the Democracy, opporinc it?
or was he lor a third party which shall
ignore this vital question altogether?
"Equality before the law" is the slogan
of our Iiudieal frie'ids. What does that
mean? Look at Louisiana, Mississippi,
South Carolina, and others of the South
ern States, and tee their deplorable con
dition: Mixed scliools, negro officers,
and the rampant nilt of ignorance, venal
ity and brutality. That is the Kidical
idea ol ecpialitv before the law carried out
to a legitimate conclusion. I was surpri
sed to see in the platform on which
General Harlan pre.-ents Liin-elt an :
candidate for your sull'rages, for the office
of Governor, a plan): demanding a turthcr
increase of the fund set apart by the State
for the education ot the c jlorc.l children.
This cannot he done without increasing
taxation upon the whites, from who.-e
hard earnings the additional fund would
have to be wring, and to this I am op
posed. "eqcahtv ncroisE tub mw."
There is one thing connected with the
Radicil party of Kentucky and their col
ored adherents that appears decidedly
anomalous. In their platform and
speeches they gash over equality all men
are created equal, you know; there must
be no exclusive privileges and yet, when
their conventions meet, and candidates
are to he nominated, the negro is totally
ignored. They have no otlices for him;
they even cannot find a corner in their ex
ecutive committees to fit him; he is hardlv
permitted the poor privilege of rising to
his feet and expressing his sentiments in
their conventions as one colored brother)
Neal, of Louisville, can sorrowfully tes-
tify, who was hushed up by the chairman
of the convention that nominated General
Harlan, when he began to give expression
to some plain hut rebellious truths on tlii.s
point. If the Radicals are in earnest in
the sentiments of equality they are con
tinually breathing into the negro's ear.
fienernl II lan, if elected Govenor, must
necessarily make some of his appoint
ments from the colored race, which com
poses by far the largest portion of his
supporters; and, in that event, we may
loolc for a colored Secretary of State and
a colored Adjutant General. He must
give these offices to them, or verify the
suspicion that is growing among the m )st
intelligent of them that the Uadicals
have 110 use for them save for voting
purposes.
GENERAL AMNCSTV.
I am in favor of general amnesty. I
want to see all the passions and preju
dices of the late conflict between the
States extinguished. While the Radi
cal party professedly favors the same
thing, it is in reality opposed to a gener
al amnesty. The cry of "traitor" and
"trcai-on," the manufacture of "Southern
outrnges," nre necessary to the existence
of that party. Keeping alive the pas
sions and animosities of the war is the
life blood in its veins. For ten long
years have the Radicals had control of
the General Government and the Con
gress, all the while professing them
selves in favor of amnesty, ami yet they
ps-ed no general amne'ty bill. Many
noble and pure spirits of tiie Middle and
Southern States have paed away from
earth "under the ban," and but the other
day Kentucky's noble and gifted Breck
inridge was gathered to his fathers with
the stigma of "traitor" resting upon his
honored name.
stati: riXAXccs.
The Democrats came into power in
1S07, when the public debt of the State
exceeded four millions ofdollars. One of
their first acts was the reduction of taxa
tion ten Cents on the hundred dollars and
in the first three years anil a half of their
rule thy reduced the public debt of tfic
commonwealth fifty-nine per cent Last
October our debt was two hundred and
sixteen thousand dollars. Since that
time twenty-one thousand dollars of this
has been retired, leaving the present in
tlebtedncs3 one hundred and ninety-live
thousand dollars. To meet this, we have
two hundred thousand dollars in United
States bonds 011 deposit in the Bank of
America at Xew York. And we have
other assets sufficient to pay otf a debt
five tiroes a large. We arc out of debt
Kentucky :inder continued and unbroken
Democratic rule for eight years, has paid
off a debt of over four millions of dollars,
and is to-day in a better condition finan
cially than any oiher State in the Union,
whether dominated by .Democrats or Rad
icals. Every dollar co'lected in those
eight years by the taxpayer of the State
can be accounted for. Not a dollar of it
has been squandered, stolen, embezzled,
or lost. He then referred to Southern
States where Radicals had as complete
control and compared them with ICeii
tueky. In those States, under Radic.il
rule, Legislatures have been disbandeo
by Federal bayonets, the judicial ermine
torn from the shoulders of the ministers
of justice by the mailed hand of power,
the civil law trampled under foot by mil
itary satraps commanding negro militia,
the bill of rights violated, the habeas cor
pus suspended, the independence of the
press crushed and the freedom of speech
stilled, and despotic rule held supreme
sway. Carpet-baggers and political ad
venturers held high carnival and reveled
111 the spoils wrested from the people of
the South. The right of sulfrage was
snatched from the whites anil conferred
upon the negroes. In ISiio Georgia was
out of debt, but under "reconstruction"
and Radical misrule, her public debt had
reached, in 1871, titty millions of dollars.
North Carolina, in 1SC5, owed nine mil
lion"; in 1S71 her debt was thirty-four
millions. In 1SG.3, Florida owed two
hundred and twenty thousand; in 1871
her debt was fifteen millions. Alabama,
in 1SG3, owed five millions; in 1871 her
debt was thirty-eight millions. South
Carolina has been under perpetual Radi
cal rule ever sirce the close of the war,
and if everything in the State were sold
to-day, the proceed:) would not be suf-
ificicnt to liquidate her indebtedness. Be
fore she was taken possession of bv that
1 party her property was worth live hur-
died millions ofdollars; now it is valued
at less than two hundred millions. She
used to have to pay an annual tax of
something over two hundred thousand
dollars: now her animal tax-list foots up
over two millions. Louisiana, ence so

merce of the world, her people forming j

tion, Radical misrule, and military out
rage. In 1805, her public debt was ;
eight millions of dollars, which has been 1
swelled until it is now llfty-two millions.
Her Governor, elected by the will of her
people, has been prevented from exercis
ing the functions of hisollice by Federal
interference; an usurper fastened upon
them instead; her Legislature, chosen by
her people at a fair election, dispersed by
Federal bayonets, the Democratic and
Conservative members thereof arrested
and their seats partitioned among their
if ., . .. ..
ueieaieti opponents; anil nil tins sanc
tioned and approved by the Republican
Administration. And yet the Republican
party asks you to take Kentucky from
the control of the pirty which has pre
served peace and nourished prosperity
in her borders, extinguished her State
debt, and jMacc it under the control of
that party which has sanctioned and ap
proved and organized and directed all the
outrages and plundering that brought
disa- erand ruin upon her fair sisters of
the South. Once all the South was un
der Radical rule. Xow, thank God 1 all
but three have broken the yoke ofbon
dage, and those three will soon follow
their fortunate sisters into the paths of
freedom. Not alone in the South has the
baleful influences and direful results of
Radical domination been felt, but all
over the Union, wherever that party has
held sway, the same resulu have followed
in its wake.
XATIOK.vr. FISAXCE3.
'1 he last year under Democratic rule
the Government of the United States was
run at a cost of fifty-six millions of dol
lars. The ngjregate expenses under
Democratic rule for twenty-five years was
one hundred and seventy-two millions
La-t year the Republican Congress appro
priated three hundred and twenty-two
millions ofdollars for the expenses of one
year alone. In six years, from 18G3 to
1871. the Republicans collected in the
way of internal revenue tax, one billion
two hundred and fifty-two millions ofdol
lars, which is ten times a grcatcrsum than
the Democrats collected in forty years.
La't year the Republicans collected one
hundred and six millions of internal rev
enue, and Kentucky had to pay five mil
lion? four hundred and fifty-six thousand
of that, while the whole of the Xew Eng
land States together only paid five mil
lions five hundred and 3eventyfivc thou
sand. That is what makes times hard
here. We pay all the taxes, and Xew
England absorbs all the c'as legislation.
While Kentucky only gets seven millions
of currency apportioned to her National
Banks, Massachusetts is the recipient of
fifty-nine millions. In order to carry 011
the war, the Government issued bonds,
which were bought up principally by New
England capitalists, and immediately ex
empted from taxation, while we of the
South and West are required to pay tax
es upon everything. They were first
made piyable in currency, but as tho of
ficers of Government, President, cabinet
officers, members of Congress, and the
Eastern capitalists who backed them, be
came the purchasers of nearly allthe bonds
a Republican Congress declared that they
should be paid in gold; ami thus the de
precative currency was cast to the far
mers and laboring men as good enough
money for them. They thus unlawfully,
and tor their own profit, saddled upon us
a debt of at least live hundred millions of
dollars. They passed a National Bank
law by which the deposit of one hundred
thousand dollars in U. S. bonds, drawing
interest in gold, would secure ninety thou
sand dollars in currency, to be loaned to
ihc people at exorbitant interest. New
England secured the lion's snare of these
banking privileges, of this currency, and
now, when money is scarce with 113, to
scarce that we can hardly conduct the
ordinary business of life, there is no lack
of it at the East.
TIIU TARIFF qCESTlO.V.
Tund the Democratic party stand op
posed to a high protective tariff. Under
Republican rule more than two thousand
articles of everyday use and wear have
been taxed in this way. The taxes on
these articles range from sixty to two
hundred per cent., and it all comes oil
the consumer and laborers. They taxed
incomes for awhile, but that operated
against the rich men and the New Eng
land capitalists and the liadica! leaders,
and then it was repealed. This high
protection favors and benefits eight States,
while it is sapping the life-blood of the
other twenty-nine States. The twenty
nine Slates are the servants of the other
eight, and these are growing rich from
the products of our labor. Our cotton,
tobacco, etc., arc shipped there for manu
facture, and it is heavily taxed, while
they are protected by this tariiT, and al
lowed to monopolize and realize large
profits thereby. Why do we not have
protection in our corn, rye, Arc . Ac? We
have none, but, instead, every bushel ol
grain manufactured into whisky, one of
the principle industries ol Kentucky, is
taxed about three dollars and sixty cents.
SqCAXnGRINti l'Clll.'C LANDS.
The Republican party have squandered
and given away during their reign of
power, two hundred and fourteen millions
of acres of the public lands to railroad
rings, monopolies, A"e ; enough to have
founded a vast empire; enough to hae
given a home of an hundred acres each to
two millions of families; all given away,
and the Government has realized but lit
tle benefit from it. The Republicans
having begun to find out that this waste
of the public domain is recoiling on them,
meet in convention alter convent: on, and
pass resolutions to the effect that thev
are desirous of preserving and holding the
public land, after they havejquandered
it all, save the barren soil and snow
capped peaks of Alaska.
OCH DCCWCD COMMERCE.
Under Republican administrations onr
commerce lias declined, our ship-yards
are idle, and our tonnage in vessels has
decreased largely, while that of Great
Britain has doubled.
ARKANSAS AXD LOCSIAXA.
I-residcnt Grant, in 1874, when Brookes
and Baxter were at war over the guber
natorial chair of Arkansas, issued his
proclamation declaring Baxter to be the
legally elected Governor of the State. Ten
months altcrwards, when it suited his
political purposes better to place Brookes
in, he 6ent in a message to Congress to
the etfect that Brookes was the legal Gov
ernor of Arkansas. Such conduct as this
creates suspicion and fear of despotism
:md anarchy in its worst form. The
dramas enacted in Lousiana and Arkan
sas have never been equaled anywhere
iiniit the name and pretext of liberty
and free Republican Government.
KENTCCKV'S EXTIABLC rCSITIOX.
Kentucky has much to be thankful
for. Our taxes.are low, our sons prosper
ous and our daughters arc happy and
beautiful: all under continued and un
broken Democratic rule. Fellow-citizens,
do you want.thia state of nfiairs to con
tinue? Then keep the Democratic party
in power. Do you want to exchange
this state of things for the condition or
Louisiana, South Carolina or Arkansas?
Then put the Slate into the hands of
Republicans. When the smoke of the
battle shall have rolled away, I am con
fident that the old Democratic banner
will float high and proudly above the
field of victory, and that Kentucky will
be the first to tend the keynote of a
universal return to Democratic rule
ringing through her sister States.
THE XATCRE 01' TIIE CONTEST.
Fellow-citizens, the contest is not a
personal one between General Harlan
and myself, but a contest for principles,
lie represents and is the standard bearer
of the parly that will continue the high
tarilt" class legislation; continue to squan
der the public lands; continue the evils
under which the people groan, their local
self-governments are destroyed, and
liberty outraged and trampled under foot
in its own sacred name. I represent the
party which would correct all these evils;
the party that -will deal out speedy justice
to law breakers; the parly which requires
honesty and fidelity in the transaction OJ
public business from those it elevates to
oflice; the party that will subordinate the
military to the civil power; the party of
strict economy in the conduct of the finan
cial affairs ofgovcrnment; the party ot
equal rights to all and exclusive privileges
to none. Here he read the Democratic
platform, and continued These are the
principles of true republicanism the
crown jewels in the diadem of liberty
they have given vitality to and guided
the steps of the Democratic party from
ISOO until now. I am the standard-
bearer of this party and the defender of
its principles, and as such I ask your sup
port at the polls.
