On which no tax was due,

Emotions still worn free,
And evrrj man vau thought to hive

Arresta were madu by course of law,

And Seward ran;; no little hell,
vVhcn this old hat was new.
When this old h;it was new
This land was in its piimo,

And whito folks then wcrcthonghlasgnod

said bho would liko to accompany him.
Ho replied that ho had no objections,
provided she did not cucumber tho oar
t'mgo with bandboscs, which was his ab'
horrcnee.
During tho first ilay'n journey, Lord
Kllcnborough happened to stretch bis legs,
struok his feet ngninst something bolow

box. Up went tho window and out went
tho bandbox.
Tho coachman stonned, and tho foot
man, thinking that tho bandbox had tum
bled out of tho wiudow by eomo extraor
dinary chance, waH going to pick it up
whon Lord Ellcnborough called out :
"Dr'tvo od 1"
Tho bandbox was accordingly lef t by
tho ditch side.
Having readied the country town where
ha wns lo ofliciuto as ludge, Lord LUcn
borough proceeded to array hiins elf for bis

COUNTY, PENN'A,,
Speech of Col. V. E. Piollet, of
Bradfoi d County, at the Great
Nob Mountain Mooting, 'JLueM
day Evening- Aug. 29th, 18G5.
Ladies and Gentlumen : I did not
expect to address you this ovening being
somewhat fatigued after my long journey
from homo to tjiis place, but I understand
that according to your arrangements 1 am
expectod to say somcihing on this occa
sion. If thoro over was a time in our history
when tho active cxerlious of all tho labor
ing and producing classoj of tlio country
wcro called for to rcgulato tho political
affairs of tho country, it is now. Wo have
just emerged from a civil war of tho most
giganlio proportion?, and wo aro ptound
and happy at the result ; wo congratulate
oach other when wo meet upon tho fact
that victory porches oti tho uationial bau
nor, and that tho Union of theso States,
tho glorious Uuion bequeathed to us by
our fathers, has stood tho shock of war,
and that wo havo been ablo to maintain it
against armed resistance. Iu our politi
cal ascmblies aud in casual meetings, of
the citizens wo find everywhero men who
havo boinc arum iu dcloiico of thu Union,
The soldiers who went to battle for the
Union havo como back among us, and
they descrvo to bo remembered with grati
tude by all; they deserve a helping baud
from every ouo of us ; and lliey deserve
lo know irom m iu our political discus
sions so much of tho paM as will put us
as political partis. 111.1 and ftiuuds ri.'lit
with them. I intend in all tho transac
tions of life to i-Und tho Grm, unyiulditiff
friend of the man who battled for tho Uiw
iou ; I will give him a preference in every
waj that I can, bo Unit ho may ho ablo to
cam his livelihood during the remainder
of his days. I am willing that tho Treas
ury shall pay him a pension for services
rendered, out of tho money collected by
Uxes from tho people. So let it ho under
stood by our political opponent who havo
been so ceusotious and have tnUrrprcsvnt
cd us so much, that now that iho war is
over and tho soldiers aro coming home,

work. This is I'eeiuso they have obtain

their statements as to us were almot en
tirely fal'o. Tho political friends aud as

tho fact 1 1 have throughout my life held
0110 political association ; 1 stand with the
men with whom 1 began ; we aro called
Duiiinorats ; wo have always borne that
titlo. I nevor had any connection witli

somewhat advanced in years and am gen

he is not afraid of mc in any way. I here
declare that I ucver iu my life saw among
my political associates that man who
wanted this Union divided, who would
oven agree for ono luomout that tho cause
of secession should triumph. Thoro wai
no sympathy with the effort to break
down this "ovcrmucut in the breast of
any Democrat that I over met, But I
have mot many and lam of that class
who, while devoting all their efforts to
put down the rebellion and ovrthrow se
cession, wanted the liberties ol the poo-
plo preserved and the Constitution and
tho lawa of the country held sacred and
not violated under the pica of "military
necessity. The trouhlo with our Re
publican opponents was that this was the
first war tuoy had ever bupportcu, ami
having always attributed politio.il success
to clap-trap aud to uiaincorc effort" to
blind tho people, they sought to uso this
occasion to plant themselves firmly in
power. Whilo tho war was being carried
on in a manner creditable to the country,
there was but onq voice ; tho people with
out distinction ol party llockcd to that
standard which was ever sacred in tho
eyesofa Democrat the Stars and Stripes
of his country. Iloforc an attempt was
made to give the war a paitisan charac
ter, to bond it fiom its grcjtt aud only lo
gitimate purposo, there- wcro more men
volunteering than wcro required. I lint,
howovcr, was not the kind of war the
party in powor wanted. They wanted to
do somo not that would call forth tho op
position of honest men, so thnt thoy could
point to thoso men as opposed to (ho
President aud his administration, and
thoroforo opposed to tbo Government ;
thoy holding that tho President and tho

Some of ihoin said that was an evidence

Why, lellow citizens, 1 picked up to
day a kind of newspaper sheet issued by
Jay (!ooko & Co . the financial ngcuts of
the Government, in which they undertake
to ridicule any man who has any oonecrn
about a public debt und to advance tho
notion that it is a publio blcsung. Wo
were taught by Mr. delferson, who you
wero told to day was the founder of our
party, that economy in the expenses of the
Government was a first prinoiplc to be
recognized, that a public debt was a pub
lic ourso, a burden upou tho industry aud
labor of tho couutry that should bo avoid
ed, Wo have imbibed this idea. A Demo
crat believes that ihc inoucy which i
paid into the Ticasary for tlio purpnso
of dcfrayinir tho expenses of government
sboald ho held sacred for that end and that
tho people should be burdcuod as lightly
as possible.
Rut fellow cilizpu", not only havo our
predictions beeu verified, but tho leahty
exceeds the aggregate we Icarcd ; ami
while this debt has been created no re
spect has been paid by these men to the
great principle that altvajs ought to gov
ern honest men when creating debts. A
man who contracts a debt without tho
ability or intention to pay it, is not an
honost man. IJuiing tho period when a
debt has been created bearing au intcrcit
cf soven and three tenths per ecut., money
has not boon worth more than '1 or 5 per
cent, in this country. Tho leading gov
ernments of tho world Day but II per cent.
for money. A largo share of the debt of
Great Britain pays ouly 2J per cent.;
none of it over 3 per cent. These gen
tlcincu havo authorized loaiw at sccn and
three tenths per cent., and now they aro
telling us that the moro wo owe tho richer
wo are. (Laughter.) That sounds strange
to your oars. It Founds strange to a Ger
man population that always paid their
debts, ami thoy arc a people who always
do it. Not only this, but tbo Federal leg
islation on tho subject is a gross attempt
to efiaMifh an aristocracy, and if per
mitted lo remain in existence will 111,125
years establish an aiiftocracy of wealth in
this country with more power over tho la
bor, over the lite, tlio property, anil tho
interests of our citizens, than that which
oppresses tho people in any other quarter
of the globe. A late of interest double

not ouly that, hut Congress lias said to
tho mau who will put his monoy iuo
Government bondi that ho shall bo ro

anthem. Let ir.o illustrate- tho practical
effoct of this exemption:
I know two men who began life to
gether without any pecuniary mcaus ; witli
ouc of them I am intimately acquainted ;
tho other 1 liavo known all my lilu; when
tbey wsro released Irom their obligations
to their parents, they cninini.nccd business
in thu immediate neighborhood of each
other. "'They havo been alike bucoosslul.
if an inventory had been taken of their
effects threo or four years ago, they would
probably havo amounted to about tho t-ame
sum in dollars and centi; Ouo of these
men is a humor, uliicli I believe is yet
considered a useful employment. 1 be
lio vc it is admitted that ihoic men who till
tho soil aru at least equally deserving and
equally meritorious with any other olafs
in this country. Theao two mon 'differ
politically ; ono is a democrat ; the other
has bclongod to the different parties that
have constituted thu opposition in this
country dining tho last 00 or 70 years,
i cannot undertake to recite their mime ;
they aro too vatious, aud it would take
too tuuoh timo. (Laughter-) Wo havo in
Pcninylvania u systom of common, schools
authorized by lew. A gcueralappiopria
tion of a certain amount is made every
year to each school distiiot out of tho Stair
Treasury, und iu addition to that a certain
tax is rtFnc6rd on our proporty to 'upport
the liohttnU. Tho children of all tho cili

so framed originally as to carry out tho
idea that tho child nf the rich man uliould
havo no advantago over tho poor man's
child.
Onu of tho two mon to whom I havo
referred, has invested his entire 00 or 70
thousand dollars in United States Ronds,
whilo tho other has his money in real cs
tato and is farming. Tho latter pays this
year 8110 towards supporting the common
schools of his township, while hia neigh
bor who begau life with him, sends his
children to tho samo schools and docs not
pay a single cent towards maintaining
them. Is ho not privileged over thu other ?
Tho man who retained his property iu
lands pays SlfiO to maintain tho roads and
btidgos of tho township in which these
two men live. Tho gentleman who hae
money in seven aud thruc-touths bonds,
drives his carriago over those roads by
tho samo right that tho other docs, and
yet ho ddes not pay a fiippeny-bit towards
their repair. Then there is a sum raised
in tbo township for the poor under a hu
mane provision of law that wan intended
to give out of a common fuud relief to a
man who had through mislortuno becomo
unablo Id support himself aud his family;
and this loyal seven aud.throo tenths gen
tleman is relieved from paying ouo far
thing towards that. Nay moro, tho far
mer of whom I fpeak, pays 8110 county
tax to support a system of courts iu his
county, iu whioh justice is administered,
whore every man stauds even, and where
be mu'it go to know his rights mid have
them scoured to him. The sevcu and
three tenths per cent gentleman goes into
that court and has thu samo rights thcie
with the other man who pays Sill) to
wards maintaining them throughout the
year, and yet ho docs not contribute a
singlo farthing of tax to their support.
So il is in regard to tho monoy collocled
to pay tho interest on the State debt and
to maintain a systom of Judiciary through
out thu Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
The money of this couutry iuvested iu
Government securities pays nothing to
wards any of theeo purposes, while the
holders of those bonds, drawing huch 11
high rato of interest, aro entitled to all tht;
rights that wo enjoy. Fellow Democutts,
when theso men talk to you about tho
equality of tbo negro, ask them if it would
not be well to talk about equality amongst
ourselves. (Applause ) Certainly this is
a very great privilege a favui to c ipitnl.
Our taxes this year for these purposes,
Stale, county, township, poor, aud school,
auiount to per cent 011 tho assessed
valuation ; at least, that is tho into in my
vicinity. Then add Ml per cent, to seven
and three-tenths nd you see how much
money theso gontlciuen aro getting 1
Tho worit feature of this system is that
it is destructive of the equality which was
meant to bo maintained amongst the ciii
zcus. 1 certainly do not envy tho man
who p'lokete this advantage. I would not
wall: around among my- fillow-oitizcns
and keep company with gentlemen, reflect
ing that I had taken advantago of a bad
law, and meanly attempted to live in the
State without contributing to its mpport,
and educated my children at schools kopt
up at the expense of my neighbors. It is
our business to look after these things, and
wo cannot bo said to bo injuring tho credit
of tho Government when wo talk about,
them. There arc many ways in whioh wo
can pay our creditors honestly and main
tain equality amongst ourselves. But it
is meant to oppress the laboring masses of
this country, it 13 meant to grind theni
down in tho samo ruthless manner that a
similar system of measures has oporatod
in other quarters of the world to oppress
our fellow men of our raco, for I desiro it
to be understood that when I talk of men I
mean whito men. (Applause ) In tl o liter
ature of tho world, when mau i-i spoken of,
our race is meant. When any other race
is meant, tho name is given. When you
speak about the negro, you mean him;
and so you talk ol a Malay, a Chincso, or
a Tartar. Sol need not bo mistaken when
I speak of men ; I moan wliite men.
1 havo said that there are many ways
in which a reform, advantageous to oar
Government, could bo brought about. I
will state one of than. Tho first Is,' to
turn out ol power, everywhere, tho ras
cals who havo douo those thiugs. Thero
is no trusting thorn. They are pledged to
this policy , und will eontinuo it. I am
sorry to say, that mauy men who professed
to be Domootats all their lives havo be
como tho willing agents of that class of
men who have always been endeavoring
in soma way or other to bring about this
tite of things, Turn theni out of oflico
and put in honest man nnd charge those
now agents to go forward iu good fa'uh
and mako provision for tlio certain pay
mcut of every dollar that lias boon borrow
ed upou the faith of your government.
Then, toll them to take steps to oonsolt
date a peace over tho land to tako steps
to make that portion of tho country which
il has been lound necessary todesolalo iu
order to put down armed rcBiatanco.yiehl
a revotiuo commensurate with its former
prospeiity as soon as potible. Then go
into tbo niarkelB of tho world with your
bonds bearing thrco per cont. interest and
borrow money at that rate to pay off tho
debt. That process alouo would virtually
pay one-half of it ; for I feel convinced
that wo can borrow tho money at thrcu
per octit, the moment wo show tho world
that wo havo consolidated a perfect penoe
and that tho peoplu of our -country are
agaiu in unison and aro going to produce
.is thoy havo douc herelofuro. When tbut
is done go to tho "loyal" ruou, who are
