Senator Edgerton has been troubled by the thought that the democrats in their eagerness to break down the republican majority, might raise a question about his right to stay iu the senate after the Minnesota legis lature baa met. consulted with Senator Edmunds upon the subject. Senator Edmunds said that the unbroken line of precedents in the senate was iu favor of all appointed senators holding there seats until the day the legisla ture would have power to act.

"Mr. Parnell," said Mr. Gladstone, "from motives which I do not challenge, has made himself prominent by attempting to de stroy the authority of law and to substitute for it an anarchical oppression of the Irish people. I believe that the Irish people wish to give the laud act a fair trial, and the government is de termined the people are not to be terrified out of their constitutional rights."

But we must be cautious and firm and continue the policv which the national convention advised. We have acted within the law. We are not strong enough to face England beyond the law. If the government suppresses the land league, it will be face to face with the Irish people, and I trust the people will rise equal to the occasion."

Garfield that death ensued as the result of modictl practice of the principal physician in charge of the wounded man. The affiant has reason to believe, »nd does believe that there are material witnesses for the defense whose names and residences are at present unknown to him and the question of in sanity that thus far the affiant has not been able *.o obtain information from the defendant himself or otherwise with any particularity as to where .he has been or as to persons with whom he has asso ciated for some years past so a3 to know whom to call as witnesses but the affiant believes that npou further inquiry aud within thirty days he can ascer tain the names and residences of many such wit nesses whose testimony will be very material. The affiant -believes that as many witnesses will be necessary on the part of the defense as appear on Ihr. list of witnesses for the prosecution, to-wit, forty-four, and the court is respectfully asked to make an order allowing any number of witnesses, and not exceeding forty-four, to be subpoenaed ou the part of the defendant, as his counsel may from time to time deem necessary. The affiant further states that the defendant has no means for the pay ment of any expenses, aud that the affiant himself lias received nothing and expects to receive nothiu for his expenses,disbursements, etc. The affidavit having been read Scoville said: I have endeavored under the distractions of the defendant to secure competent counsel to attend his defense. am myself.

He Enters a Flea of Not Guilty and Sco. ville, His Counsel, Makes a Lengthy Statement, Announcing His Purpose to Prove Gui teau Insane by the Testimony of Drs. Sims and Hammond and Others. WASHINGTON, Oct. 14.—When the criminal court was ready to receive Guiteau this morning the door of the witness room opened and gave entrance to Marshal Henry and two deputy mar shals, having betweeu them and hustling along the bowed and cowering figure of a man for whom they made way to the seat preserved for him be side his counsel. Then one of tlio guards un locked the handcuffs, giving the prisoner the use of his hands. Guiteau looked broken down health and spirits, and uucared for in person. His dark clothes were rusty and his whole person presented a miserably neglected appearance. After the excitement attending the entrance had sub sided. District Attorney Corkhill rose and, ad dressing the judges and grand jury, said: "The District of Columbia has indicted Charles J. Guiteau for the murder of James A. Garfield. The prisoner is in court. I ask that he be ar raigned and required to plead to the indictment." The prisoner was OltOERED TO STAND UP, and in a languid way obeyed. The clerk said: 'Your name is Charles J. Guiteau." The prisoner assented by a nod, and the clerk then pro ceeded to read the indictment, the prisoner stand ing up with his head most of the time inclined to the right shoulder, his eyes half closed or wholly closed and his bauds as if still they were hand cuffed. The reading occupied nearly halt an hour, and during all that time Guiteau not onco changed his attitude or bearing and rarely opened his eyes. He did not manifest the slightest degree of interest in the scene in which he was the chief actor, and tut for an occasional slight movement might be asleep iu a standing attitude. THE PLEA. Upon the conclusion of the reading of the indict ment, the clerk, addressing the prisoner, said: What say you to this indictment, guilty or not guilty.'" The prisoner, iu place of a response, tumbled in his waistcoat pocket and drew out a •oiled and crumbled scrap of paper. District Attorney—Enter your plea of guilty or not guilty. The Prisoner—I enter a plea of not guilty. If your honor please, I desire to make .a statement The Court—At some other time. It would not be appropriate just now. Sit down. The prisoner thereupon took his seat. District Attorney—In this case I ask that the trial be set for next Monday morning, if the defense ia not ready tor trial uow. Scoville—I appear for the defendant at his re quest, and I have some affidavits to present, the first being that of the defendant himself. THE AFFIDAVIT, which was read, states that there are various wit nesses whose evidence is material for the prisoner's defense, and without which he cannot safely go to trial that the facts that can be proven bv them severally are all known to the affiant's counsel, Mr. George Scoville, and are only known in part by the affiant: that he has no money or property and is unable to pay the fees of mileage of witnesses or costs in summoning them. He therefore pravs that the court shall allow such witnesses on his behalf as may be shown by affidavit of the counsel to be nec essary, the fees and costs to be paid in such manner as the veinment fees are paid. Scovilie theu read an affidavit made by himself which states that besides the points of law that may- be made, tne de fense will consist of two points: First, the insani ty of the defendant: and second, that the wound was not necessarily mortal, and was not the cause of President Garfield's death. The affiant had endeavored to obtain names and residences of witnesses tor the defense to prove material facts on the question of insanity, but had been unable to do so because the defendant did not seem to under stand, and refused to acknowledge the effect of the common and established rules of evidence iu such cases. The affiant believes this difficulty to arise from the very fact which such evidence would prove, to-wit: tne defendant's insanity, and yet he knows of no means to overcome it. For that reason chiefly the affidavit of the defendant became neces sary iu the case. Ho further says since he was em ployed in the citse. teu days ago, he had done what he could to prepaie fer the trial, and espe cially as he niado such inquiries as he was able, to fiud witnesses for tho defense. He further says: NAMES AND RESIDENCES OF THE WITNESSES are John M. Guiteau, New York G. A. Barker, Win. J. Maynard, Frances S. Brownellv, Orson W. Goyt and Francis M. Scoville, Chicago. Tne affi ant expects to prove by these witnasses the defen dant's tendency to hereditary insanity, not only by his own conduct but by establishing, first, that one D. A. Guiteau, a brother of the defendant, \v is in sane and died in an insane asylum in New York many years ago second, that one Augustus Parker, cousin of the defendant, a son of his father's sister, was insane and died four years ago in an asylum iu Cook couuty, 111.: that another cousin of "the de fendant, one A. Maynard, daugher of another sister ot the defendant's father, has been insane for manv years and is now confined in an insane asylum in Michigan: and further, that Luther O. Guiteau, father of the defendant, was a monomaniac on the subject of religion for many years. The affidavit further savs he expects to prove the actual insanity of the defendant him self, on different occasions, by B. G. Scoville and Geo. T. Barrows of Chicago, John H. Noyes of Niagara Falls, John E. Rice of Waucedah, Mich., aud Mr. Bradley of Chicago. The affidavit fur ther says he expects to prove by Mr. Foss of Dover, N. H., that he was present at the time and place of shooting, saw the defendant and heard what he said, and that thedefendaut'sacts and words on that occasion showed unmistakably that he was insane. The affiant further says it is important and necessary for the defense to have the testimony of experts on the subject of insanity in addition to tes timony of witnesses of facts, and that he expects to prove that the defendant was insane at the time of the shooting, by the testimony of the following named medical witnesses: Drs. Macdonald and Fitch, of the insane asylum. Ward's Island, New York: Dr. Braduer, late of the Pennsylvania hos pital of the insane in the city of Phiadelphia, and Dr. Sprague, in Chicago, of Cook county (111 asy lum for the insane. The affiant also expects to prove by the following-named medical experts: Merrick of this city and received the same answer. Merrick, however, kindly consented, in case the question of jurisdiction should be raised, to argue that branch of the case to the court, but he said beyond that he engagements would not per mit him to take an active part in the defense. 1 next, under contractions of the defeadant, applied to Benj. F. Butler, but my impression is the let ter addressed to him must have been miscarried, aa it was mailed by me last Monday and as yet I have received no answer. I saw what purported to be a telegraphic dispatch from Butler to some one in this city, dated Wednesday, at Boston, saying he had not heard from me. I have not addressed him further, hoping he has received or will receive my letter. Of course, if he cannot at tend to it it will be my duty to try to obtain other counsel. I mention these things as part of the rea sons which I think should operate with the conrt and influence it to grant further time in the case. District Attorney Corkhill opposed the delay asked for. Judge Cox said prompt trial was essential, and fixed the trial for November 7.

Senator Bayard, (dem.) of Delaware was elected president pro tern, receiving thir ty-four votes to thirty-two for Senator Anthony, presented by the republicans. Mahone voted with the republicans, but David Davis did not xote on the final election. Before the election, however, Senator Edmund proposed two amendments to Pendleton' resolution electing Bayard. One of these pro vided for the immediate swearing in of the new senators, and the other provided that Bayard should be elested president pro tem. for one day only, leaving the permanent elec ion of president till after the senate should be full. On both the resolutions Davis vote with the republicans. This encourages the lat ter to believe and leads the democrats to fear that with a full senate, Davis voting with the republicans, the action of Monday can be re versed, Mr. Bayard, unseated, and a republi can, or Senator Davis himself, placed in the chair as president pro. tem. Th procedings were devoid of further interest, being merely formal TUESDAY OCT. 1 1 Senators Aldrich, Miller and Lapham, who were denied a voice in the election of a presi dent pro tem. yesterday, were sworn in with out objection this morning. Before Messrs. Miller and Lapham were sworn in Mr. Mc Phereon presented to the senate a petition received bv him from certain demo crat members of the New York legislature al leging reasons why those gentlemen were not entitled to seats in the senate. did not pre sent the petition with any desire to delay action upon the administration of the oath. Mr. Edmunds said that he would not object to the presentation of the petition, and it was laid upon the table. Hereafter it may be referred to the committee on privileges and elections. A committee consisting of Senators Pendleton and Anthony, were appointed to wait upon the president and inform him that the senate was organized and ready to proceed to business, after which a recess of half an hour was taken. At the expiration of that time the senate reconvened, and the committee reported that the president had said that he would communicate with the senate in writing to-morrow. Mr. Edmunds presented a resolution that the standing commit tees of the last session be continued for the present session, and that the president Srarrismpromptlyyvacancy te fill an that might exist. Mr. objected, and the resolution goes over until to-morrow under the rule. Th senate then adjourned. WEDNESDAY OCT. 12 President Arthur sent the following nomina tions to the senate: Wm. W.

Hannibal Hamlin as minister to Spaiu. After the executive session there was a ltttle political sensation occasioned by a motion of Senator Logan that David Davis be elected president pro tem in place of Bayard. No speech or voice of opposition was raised ex cept by Senator Jones of Florida, who protested against -ousting Mr. Bayard from the chair. No reply was made to Mr. Jones 1 remarks, the senate recording its judgement on that ques tion by electing Senater Davis president pro tem by a majority of tho votes. Senator Harris appointed Senators Bayard and Authony, the two men who have bee so enriousiy euchred out of the position te which they aspired, to conduct Mr. Davis to the chair, where he made a short speech announcing bis entire independence of obligation to anybody. Mr. Edmunds. I move that the thanks of the senate be expressed to Hon. Thos. F. Bay ard for the dignity and impartiality with which he has presided over this body tho short period he has done so.

Tho motion of Senator EImu Is was adopted, aud after a little important business the senate adjourned. David Davis, after adjournment remarked that he would not assist either by vote or not voting, to displace any democratic official, and that he would vote to give the dem ocrats the secretary of the senate. added he intended to vote in the future as he did in the past, in accordance with his own judgment. When the proposition to elect him was formally submitted, Davis declared he would not except it except unconditionally.

Sibley, Presideut late Democratic Convention—My Dear General To avoid any misconstruction which might be placed upon my silence with respect to the action of the Democratic convention, recommend ing the voters of the State to support Judges Mitch ell, Dickinson and myself forjudges of the supreme court (notwithstanding my friend Judge Flandrau had informed the convention of mv declination of the honor), and in order that the party represented by the convention may have opportnniiy to make other recommendations in my place, I beg to state that it is still my firm determination not to be a candidate for the office. Be pleased to consider my declii a ion as final and conclusive. Apart from the circumstance that the action of the convention, over which you had the honor to preside, places me in an attitude of opposition to the determination of the Republican convention, to whose consideration my name was, with my con sent, presented, and whose action therefore con strains me, it is now apparent that political contro versies, largely of a personal character have inci dentally become connected with the use of my a 1 a I her candidacy on my part would be likely to concentrate avound an office, which should, as far as possible, be disconnected from politics, the disagreeable features of a politi cal campaign, and present apparently at least, the spectacle of an unseemly struggle for the high trust of the judge of the supreme court. I cannot think it my duty to be a party to such a controversy. In thus renewing my declination I am not un mindful of, nor ungrateful for, the many generous expressions ot confidence which the use of my name in connection with the office has elicited and 8 S to yourself and the convention over which you presided, my most grateful thanks for the honor conferred upon me, and for the kindness received at Its hands, Very respectfully yours, QBRENLEAT A S S GOV. PILLSBUBY'S MESSAGE. Delivered to the Legislature Minnesota in Extra Session October 12. of An Earnest and Forcible Plea for Bond Adjustment accord ing to Proposition of Bondholders. EXECUTIV E CHAMBEB, ST. A Oct. 12,1881 —Gentlemen of the Senate and House of Represen tatives: You are convened under circumstances of peculiar urgency. The solemn obligations of the State, issued twenty-three years ago, are rapidly approaching maturity, and no means have yet been provided for their redemption. The act of March 2 1 8 8 1 providing for the adjustment of these obligations has been declared void by the supreme court of this State and by the same su preme authority the amendment to the State con stitution, adopted in 18«0, requiring the settle ment of these bonds to bo submitted to a vote of the people, has been decided to be void, as repug nant io that clause in the constitution of the United States which prohibits the impaiiment of the obli gation of contracts. The whole matter is thus remanded to the legis lature for final action through the decree of our court of last resort, and that able and impartial tri bunal has affirmed not only that the power is vested in the legislature but the duty is imposed upon that body to provide for the adjustment of these long dishonored bonds. In view of the convictions heretofore repeatedly expressed upon this subject I need not here en large upon the weighty considerations involve:! in the result now attainable. In my judgment no subject of superior importance has ever challenged the attention of a legislative body. Upon your considerate action will depend direct material in terests to the amount of about $4,00!,000 and the final determination of a question that has proved a fruitful source of embarrassm-nt and deeply involved the honor of our beloved State. My individual preference is that every dollar of the debt represented by the Minnesota State rail road bonds should be paid in full, principal and in terest. I believe that no course short of this is consistent with the honor and integrity of a sover eign State, so far as relates to its own voluntarv ac tion. But inasmuch as the holders of the bonds have upon their own motion proposed an adjust ment upon more favorable terms, an opportunity is presented for discharging the wholo debt by par tial payment, without any necessary compromise of our good name. This offer by tho bondholders and the resulting act of adjustment based thereupon I regard as es sentially a contract. The holders of these obliga tions submitted a proposition which you accepted by the passage of an act reciting the same and pro viding means for its performance. The supreme court, while condemning the meaus thus provided, has itself reached tho end proposed by rendering the decision upon which legislative settlement wi-s conditioned, so that while the compact remains binding upon both parties, its faithful performance is rendered moro obligatory aud the moile of Mich nerfoimance simplified by the action of our highest judicial authority. Under these circurastauces the duty of the legis lature seems to me obvious and imperative. The reasons which induced the adjustment legislation at the last session are reinforced by considerations of public policy aud honor which cannot be mistaken. What was then conditional, and to some extent a matter of doubt and experiment, now rests upon the immutable basis of adjudicated law and justice. Both the power and the duty to provide for this adjustment being lodged in the legislature, it seems clear to me that the simple performance of a duty is the only ones'iou new involved. And I cannot believe that a deliberative body, to attain the ends of justice, entered into a contract involving some means of questionable legality, will fail .11 the hon orable performance of that contract uow that the way has been made cleur, easy and certain. I deem it unnecessary to reiterate the motives which should impel you to a result so desirable. However it may have been heretofore, the Minnesota State railroad bonds are now clearly on a footinr precisely similar in all respects to that of other obligations hearing the great seal of the State, hiened by its executive, and for the payment of which its faith and cr» dit are solemnly pledged. The leiralitv of their is.ue as unquestioned as that of other S'ate bonds, aid their redemption devolves as surely upon the spare legislative authority. But if any discrimination could rightfully be made between the several obli gations issued by the State it should clearly not he against these bonds. They were not issued through iiasty or ill-considered action, but after long and exhaustive discussion before the legislature, the people and by tho public pross. Their i.-sue was sanctioned by the direct and overwhelming vote of the people, and consummated under the solemn form of a constitutional amendment. The issue of no other bonds was so jealously scrutinized or so carefully guarded, and it may well be questioned whether any others have conferred greater benetit upon the State. Cherishing these views as to the just aud valid na ture of this indebteJness, I could not consistently sanction its qualified settlement did I not look upon the proposition of the bondholders and the resulting legislation of last winter as in the nature of an unfinished contract, the honorable completion of which is demanded alike by sound policy and by every consideration pertaining to the credit and reputation ot the State. The practical question simply is whether we shall now save some $4,000, 000 to the State without loss of honor, or incur the reproach of repudiation, keep going a source of constant annoyance and ai opportunity for po litical jugglery, and in tho end pay the debt in full for it cannot be possible-that an intelligent and progressive people, with moral and religious con victions, can refuse the fiual payment of an honest debt. An individual who does this while able to pay, justly incurs the scorn of his honest neighbors. What must be thought of a prosperous State that doesit, using its sovereignty as its shield? The holders of more than $2,000,000 ot the wholo issue of $2,275,000 have deposited their bonds with the state auditor, accompanied with a written agreement to accept, in new bonds or cash, 50 per cent, of the nominal amount of such sur rendered bonds and coupons, in accordance wi the act of last March. Manv of tho bondholders have demanded_ the return of their bonds since the decision of the supreme court, which demaud has been refused on the ground that the contract remains binding upon the parties, the decision having affected only the means of performance, and that the bouds cannot fairly be withdrawn until the legislature shall have taken action in the matter. Others, while still offering liberal concessions, express their unwilling ness to adhere to their original proposition in view of the decision of the supreme court and themarfctd enhancement of the value of their bonds but Mr. Selah Chamberlain, the holder of about one-half of these bonds, has adhered to his contract and re newed his proposition to accept 5 0 per cent, of th amount in full satisfaction of his claim, on the tx" press condition that the adjustment be consum" mated during the present year and there is reason to believe that most of the other bondholders will adhere to similar terms of settlement if speedily concluded. We have thus an opportunity to hon arably settle thi6 debt urn terms of rare liberality and it is because the soundest expediency and the imperative demands of justice thus uuite to demand prompt action that I have felt it my duty to conven you in extra session. The act of tho last lecislaturc. proposing an amendment to the constitution devoting the pro ceeds of the internal improvement lands to the pay ment of the adjustment bonds has been rendered inoperative by the decision of the supreme court. It will, therefore, bo necessary to promptly read just and re-enact its provisions to conform to the Dew action to be taken, in order to submit the pro posed amendment to the people at the approaching general election. The aveiage price realized thus far for the lands sold is about $7 per acre, and the fund from such sales already amounts to $8K),00. In view of the rapid settlement of the country it is believed that the total sum which will be finally re alized from the sale of these lands will reach $1.00O,OOO, a sum nearlv or quite suffi cient to pay the whole indebtedness without re course to taxation. That there may be no wrong impression on your minds regarding the whole amount due on these bonds, I would say that by a former decision of our supremo court, past-due coupons draw interest, as well as the bonds to which they are attached, and should interest be computed in accordance with this decision the whole debt would amount, on December 1. 1881, to about $8,200,000, and, should the pending proposition be consummated, the saving to the State will thus be about $4,000,000. If this oppurtunity be not immediately embraced, 1 am fully persuaded it will never occur again, for it cannot longer be expected that partial payment will hereafter be accepted by the holders of these obh'gations in view of the ability of the State to pay in full and the verdict of its highest court assigi ing to the legislature the duty to provide for paj ment. Unless, therefore, the sending settlement be now completed, we will be confronted with the bald choice between total payment and naked repudiation. Dare we contemplate this final alter native? What are all our fair possessions, what the bountiful gifts of nature and.the proud achieve ment of industry, if we preserve not our honor as their crown and shield? Of what avail are the in stitutions and the prosperity of which we boast? These are but perishable things, which—lacking the stay and fulfillment conferred by love of justice —may bury us in their ruins. Like the brazen trappings purchased by loss of virtue, the pros perity we parade may bd our badge of shame. Every bushel of wheat and barrel of flour we send abroad will bear the indelible brand of repudiation. In every reputable community, a reference to what should feed au honest pride will provoke jeering reminders of our disgrace, and-the beautiful name we bear will become a synonym of public dishonor. Senators and representatives, without question ing the sincerity of such of you as differ from me ia opinion—according to each and all of you the purity of motive I claim for myself—I am pro foundly impressed with the conviction that this grave question cannot be safely postponed, and I affc you by every consideration of equitv, public policv and fair dealing, to give it your earnest at tention. For the enduring welfare of the fair State we have chosen as our home as we would justly share in that national heritage of financial honor which is the won der of the world: that we may deserve the reward of a generous prosperity, and invoke the blessings of Almighty God—I entreat yon as a parting word to perform a simple act of justice which shall for ever put at rest the haunting spectre of repudia tion, and place our young commonwealth irrevoca bly in the sisterhood of honorable States. 18.

Whether the agreements for settlement now in my hands arc binding or not, I cannot say, but I am sansti from my corre3[ondaice with t!i« par ties, that they are all readj* and wlUiug to carry out the proposed settlement on their part if made at once. It will require on tho 1st day of December O.Sb'2,445 of new bonds to settle for the 2.050 bonds in hand and reported. Whether a *1 per cent bond will be accepted by the bondholders, I do not know. They have agreed to accept a 5 per cent, bond, or money on the basis of the proposed adjustment, and if a -1 ner cent, bond eau be negotiated at par, of course they can be satisfied by tlin issue of a -1 ^jer cent, bond and if a 5 per cent, bond should be asti".i and it could be sold at a premium, which is probable, theu the State would save tho amount of whatever premium might be realized. Assuming that one-half the bonds not heard from may ulti mately be presented, the amount required to com plete tho settlement would reach $4,000,000. If the proceeds of the internal improvement lands should be applied to the payment of these bonds, 3*300,000 might be used immediately, thus reduc ing the debt to $3,700,000, and this amount would be reduced from the same source about $200,000 each year, until the internal improvement lands are all sold and contracts paid. If 4 per oeut. bonds should be accepted, the an nual interest would amount to $148,000 the first year and $8,000 less each succeeding year. According to the provisions of the adjustment act the interest is to b« paid from the proceeds of taxes upon gross earnings of railroad companies, wbich are increasing at the rate of $00,000 per year the amount received in 1870 being $209,464, in 18S0. $28 4,480, and for this year, $320,100. If the in terest shouid be met by direct taxation, it wouid require an increase of the State tax one-half of a mill for each year, which rate would be decre.ised thereafter as the assessed valuation of the State in creased and the principal of the debt decreased. Very respectfully, O. P. WHITCOMB. Auditor of State. AS ELOQUENT TRIBUTE Whic the Governor General of Canada Paul to President Garfield and the Peopl of the United States. Extracts from the address of the marquis of Lome at Winnipeg: It was most interesting to compare the southern mountains and prairies with our own, and not even the terrible events which have recently cast so deep a gloom upon our neighbors, as well as ourselves, could prevent our kinsmen from showing that hos pitality and courtesy which makes a visit to their country so great a pleasure. [Loud applause.! I am the more glad to bear witness to this courtesy in the presence of the distinguished consul of ths United Siates, who is your guest this evening, and who. in this city, so honorably represents his coun try [applause] in nothing more than this, that he has never mirepresented our own. [Loud ap plause.! Like almost all his compatriots who occupy by the suffrage of their people official positions, he has recognized that fact which is happily acknowl edged by all of standing amongst ourselves that the interests of the British empire and or* the United States may be advanced side by side without jeal ously or friction, and that the good of the one ia interwoven with the welfare of the other. [CheersJ. Canada has recently shown that sympathy with her neighbor's grief whieh becomes her, and which has been sc marked throughout all portions of oar empire. She has sorrowed with the sorrow of the great commonwealth, whose chief lias been struck down, in the fuliness of his strength, in the height of his usefulness, in the day of universal recogni tion of bis noble character, by tLe dastard hand of the assassin. We have felt in this as though we ourselves had suffered, for Gen. Garfield's position and personal worth made his own and his fellow citizens' misfortune a catas trophe for ail English-speaking races. The bul letins telling of his calm and courageous struggle against cruel and unmerited affliction have been read aud discussed by us with as strong an ad miiation for the man, and with as tender a senti ment for the anxiety and misery of his family as they have been awaited and perused in the South. It is fitting and good that this should be. We have with the Americaus, not only a common descent, but a similar position on this continent and a like probable destiny. The community of fteling reaches beyond the fellowship arising from the per sonal interest attaching to the dignity of a high of fice sustained with honor, and to the reverence for lie tender ties of hearth and home, sacred though these be, for Canadians and Americans have each a common aim and a common ideal. Though belonging to very different political schools and preferring to advance by very different paths, we both desire to live in a land of pcrlvt liberty. (Loud cheers.) When the order which ensures freedom is desecrated by the cowardly rancour of the murderer,"or by the ranny of faction, the blow touches more than one lif», and strikes over a wider circle than that where iis nearer and immediate consequences are apparent. The people of the United States have been directed into one political organization, and we are cherishing and developing another: but they wiii find no men with whom a closer and more living sympathy with their tri umphs or with their trouble abides, than their Can adian cousins in the Dominion. (Cheers.) Let this be so in the days of unborn generations, and may we never have again to express our horror at such a deed of infamy as that which has lately called forth in so striking a manner the proofs of international respect and affection. «.
