Blaine of the action of the Convention performed that duty on Sat urday, the shidy lawn in front of the Iilainc homestead being chosen as the scene of the ceremonial. When all the preliminaries had been arranged General Henderson, of Missouri, stepped forward and presented the address of the com mittee, reading from manuscript as fol lows : Mr. Blaink Yonr nomination for the office of President of the United States by the National Republican Convention recently assembled at Chicago, is already known to you. The gentlemen before you, constituting the committee, com posed of one member from each State and Territory of the country, and one from the District of Columbia, now come as the accredited organ of that convention to give you formal notice of the nomination and to request jour ac ceptance thereof. It is of course kuown to you that beside your own, several names, among the most honored In the councils of the Republican party, were pi escnted by their frier. ds as candidates for this nomination. Between your friends and the friends of the gentlemen so just ly entitled to the respect and confidence of their political associates, the contest was one of generous rivalry, free from any taint of bitterness, and equally free from the reproach of injustice. At an early stage of the proceedings of the Con dition it became manifest that the Re publican States, whose aid must be in coked at the last to insure success to the ticket, earnestly desired your nomina tion. It was equally manifested that, the desire so earnestly expressed by the delegates from these States was but a truthful reflection of the irresistible popular demand. It is not thought nor pretended that this demand had its origin in any ambitious desires of your own or in the organized work of your friends, but it was recognized to be what it truthfully is a spontaneous ex pression by the people of love and admir ation of their chosen leader. Nonomina would have given satisfaction to all the members of the party. This was not to be expected in a country so extended iu area and so varied in interests. The nomination of Lincoln in I860 disappoint ed so many hopes and overthrew so many cherished ambitions, that for a short time the disaffection threatened to ripen into revolt. In 1872 the discontent was so pronounced as to induce large masses of the party to oraauize iu opposition to lis nomiuees. For many weeks after the nomination of Garfield in 1880, defeat seemed inevitable. In each case the shock of disappointment was followed by sober, second thought. In dividual preferences gradually yielded to convictions of public duty. Promptings of patriotism finally rose superior to the irritations and animosities of the hour. The party in every trial has grown stronger in the face of threatened danger. In tendering you the nomina tion it gives us pleasure to remember those great measures which furnished causes for party congratulations by the late convention at Chicago, and which are now crystali.cd into the legislation of the country, meas ures which have strengthened and dig nified the Nation; and while they ele vated and advanced the people, have at all times and on all proper occa sions received your earnest and valuable support. It was your good fortune to aid In protecting the Nation against the assaults of armed treason; you were present and helped to unloose the shackles of the slave: you assisted in placing a new guarantee of freedom in the Federal Constitution ; your voice was potent in preserving the National faith when fajse theories of finance would have blasted National and individual prosper ity. We kindly remember you as a fast friend of honest money and commercial integrity. In all that pjrtalns to the se curity and repose of capital, dignity of labor, mauhootl elevation and freedom of the people, th ; right of the oppressed to demand, and the duty of the Government to afford protection, your public acts have received unquali fied indorsement and popular approval. But we are not tin mindful of the fact that parties, like individuals, can not live en tirely on the past, however splendid the record. The present is ever charged with immediate cares, and the luture presses on with its new duties aud its perplexiug responsibilities. Parties, like individuals, however, that are free from stain and unviolated faith ia the past are fairly en tilled to the presumption of sin cerity iu their promises for the future. Among the promises made by the party in its late convention at Chicago are: Economy and pttirty of ad ministration ; protection of citizens, na tive and naturalized, at home and abroad; the prompt restoration of the Navy; a wise reduction of the surplus revenues, relieving the tax-payer without injuring the laborer; the preservation of public lauds for the actual settlers; import duties, when necessary at all, to be levied not for revenue only, but for the double pur,sc of revenue and protection; the regulation of internal commerce and the settlement of internal differences by peaceful arbitration, but coupled with the reasscrtion and maintenance of the Monroe doctrine as interpreted by the fathers of the Republic; the persever ance in the good work of civil service reform to the end that the dangers to free institutions which lurk in the power of official patronage may be wisely and effectively avoided ; honest currency based on coin of in trinsic value, adding strength to the public credit and giving renewed vitality to every branch of American industry. Mr. Blaine, during the last twenty-three years the Republican party has builded a new republic; a republic far more splen did than that originally designed by our fathers. As its proportions are already grand, they may yet be enlarged; Its foundations may yet be strengthened, and its columns adorned with beauty more resplendent still. To you, as its architect-in-chief, will soon be assigned this grateful work. . blaink's reply. Mr. Blaine then read as follows: Jfr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the Hu- tional Convention: I receive, not without deep sensibility, your official notice of the action of the National Convention, already brought to my knowledge through the public press. I appreciate more profoundly than I can express tbe honor which is implied in the nomination for the Presidency by the He pudlican party of the Nation, speaking through the authoritative voice of their dnly accredited dclecates. To be se lected as a candidate from such an assem blage, from the list of eminent states men whose names were presented tills me with embarrassment. I can only express my gratitude for so signal an honor and my desire to prove worthy of the great trust reposed in me in accepting the nomination as I now do. I am im pressed, I am also oppressed with a sense of tbe labor and responsibility which at taches to my position. The burden is lightened, however, by the hostof earnest men who support my candidacy. A more formal rcceptaQSG Wj:i naturally be ex- fb dne season be may, however, not be inappropriate at this time to say that I have already made a careful study of the principles announced by the National convention, and that, in the whole and in detail, they have my hearti est sympathy and meet my unqualified approval. Apart from your official er rand, gentlemen, I am extremely happy to welcome you all to my house. With many of you I have already shared the duties of public service, and have en joyed most cordial friendship. I trust your journey from all parts of the great republic has been agreeable, aud that during your stay in Maine you will feel that you are not among strangers, but with friends. Invoking the blessing of God npou the great cause which we jointly represent, let us turn to the fu ture without fear and with manly hearts. At the conclusion of Mr. Blaine's reply the members of the committee were in troduced to him individually, and an hour was spent in social and informal converse. The members then repaired to the house of Colonel Osgood, where they were en tertained at lunch. At one o'clock they left for Portland. Logan Serenaded. Washington, D. C, June 23. The ex-soldlers and sailors resident in Washington serenaded General Logan Sat urday evening. They assembled at the City Hall, and forming in platoons of twelve marched, headed by the Marine Band, to the General's residence on Twelfth St., where a crowd of 2,000 or 3,000 citizens were already assembled. The procession was liberally supplied with banners, rock ets, Roman candles and noise-making devices. The banner of the Army of the Tennessee was displayed from the upper window of General Logan's house. Gen eral Logan's appearance was greeted with a storm of cheers. When the applause subsided he was introduced in a brief speech by General Green B. Raum. General Logan then addressed the as semblage as follows: Comrades and fkixow-citizens The warm expressions of confidence and con gratulations which you offer me through your chairman Impress me with a deep sense of gratitude. I beg to tender my sincerest thanks to one and all of my participating friends for this demonstra tion of kindness and esteem. Your visit at this time, gentlemen, is interesting to me, in a double aspect. As citizens of our common country, tendering tributes to me as public man, I meet you with genuine pleasure and grateful acknowldgmcnt. Coming, however, as you do, iu the char acter of representatives of the soldiers and sailors of our country, your visit pos sesses a feature insensibly leading to a train of most interesting reflections. Ap plause. Your assemblage is composed of men who gave up the pursuits of peace, relinquished the comforts, of home, sev ered the ties of friendship and yielded the gentle and loving society of father, mother, sister, brother and in many in stances wife and little ones, to brave the dangers of the tented field or crested wave; to run the gauntle of sickness in climates different from your own, aud possibly, or even probably, to yield up life itself in the serv ice of your country. Twenty-three years ago, gentlemen, when dre.ul war raised its wrinkled ftont throughout tue land, many of you were standing with oue foot upon the portal of manhood, eager for the conflict with the world, which promised to briug you honors, riches, friends and a life of peace and ease in the society of "your own family. But few of you had passed the period of young manhood or advanced to the open ing scene of middle life. At the call, however, of your endangered country you did not hesitate to leave everything for which we strive In this world to become defenders of the Union, without the in centive which has Inspired men of other nations to adopt a military career as a permanent occupation and as an outlet to ambition and ascent to power. Cheers. The safety of our country having been assured and its ter ritorial integrity preserved, you sheathed the sword, unfixed the bayonet, laid away the musket, housed the cannon, doffed yonr uniforms, donned the garments of civil life, buried hatred toward our brothers of the South and shook hands in testimony of mutual resolve to re habilitate the waste places and cultivate the arts of peace until our reunited coun try should be greater, prouder and grander than ever before. Great cheers. Those years have glided into the retreating per spective of the past, since you responded to your country's call, and mighty changes in the eventful march of na tions have taken place. This passing time has laid its gentle lines up on the heads of many of you who shoul dered your muskets before the first beard was grown. But however lightly, or however heavily, it has dealt with you, yonr soldiers' and sailors' organizations that have been kept up prove that the heart has been untouched, and that your love of country has but been iuteusifled with advancing years. Cheers. Your arms have been as strong and your voices as clean in the promotion of peace as when lent to the defense in war, and tho interest which you take in National affairs proves that you are patriotically deter mined to maintain what you fought for and that which our lost comrades gave up their lives to secure for the benefit of those who survived them. Applause long continued. During the last twenty years, in which we have been blessed with peace, the Republican party has been continued in administration of the Government. When the great question of preserving or giving up the Uuion of States was pre sented to us it was the Republican party, which affirmed its perpetuation. I open no won nds, nor do I resurrect any bad memories in stating this as an undeniable fact. When you aud I, my friends, and that vast body of men, who, having de clared in favor of preserving the Union, were compelled to resort to the last dread measure, tho arbitrament of war, we did so under the call of the Republi can party. Many of us had been educated by our fathers In the Democra tic schools of politics, and many of ua were acting with that party at the time the issue of the war was presented to us. For years the Oemocratic party had wielded the destinies of our government, and had served its purpose under nar rower views of the ideal Republic, which then existed. But the matter of time has developed a new child of progress, which saw the light of day under the name of the Republican party. Its birth an nounced the conceptions of higher and broader principles of human government than had been entertained by our fore fathers. But few of as, perhaps none, took in the fall dimensions of the com ing fact at that early day. It broke up-m us gradually, like the morning son as he rises in the misty dawn above the mountain top. At length it came In full blaze, and for the . first time in the history of our Republic we began to give genuine vitality to tbe declara tion of 1770, that "all men are created equal" and entitled to the inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Cheers. The Republican party was unquestionably the agency which bore these rights to a waiting age, and It was the Democratic ides which disputed their value first upon the field of battle and subsequently and up to this moment, at the polling places of the country. The Republican party represents th latest fruition of governmental progress, aud Is destined to survive upon the theo pected, and will communicated. It ry that the strong outlives the weak until the deve opmeut of principles still more advanced shall compel it to measure its step with the march of the age, or go to tbe wall as the instrument which has ful filled its destiny. So long as the Demo cratic party shall cling, either in open or covert manner, to the traditions belong ing to an expired era of our development, just so long will the Republican party be charged with the administration of our Govern ment. In making this arraignment of tbe De mocracy, my friends, I appeal to no pas sions, nor re-open sealed questions. I but utter calm, sober words of truth. I say, that until every State in this broad and beneficent Union shall give free rec ognition to civil antl political rights of the humblest of its citizeus, whatever his color, until protection to American citi zens follows the flag at home and abroad; until the admirable monetary system, es tablished by the Republican party, shall be placed beyond the power of subversion; until American labor and industry shall be protect ed by wise and equitable laws, so as to give full scope to our Immense re sources and place every man upon a plane to which he is entitled by reason of his capactity and worth cheers ) ; until we shall have established a wise American policy, that will not only preserve peace with other nations; but will cause every American citizen to honor bis govern ment at home and every civilized nation to respect our flag. Renewed cheering. United, the American people shall per manently establish a thoroughly economic system upon an American ideal which will preserve and foster their own in t rests uninfluenced by English theories or "Cobdeu Clubs, and until It is conceded beyond subsequent revocation that this Government exists upon the basis of a self-sustaining, self-preserving Nation, and the fatal doctrine of "in depenclcut State sovereignty "upon which the civil war was founded, shall be stamped as political heresy out of which continued revolution is born, and wholly incompatible with th-j idea of a Republic, the Hepiiblican party will have much work to do and an unfulfilled mission to perform. At this point tho speaker was inter rupted some time by cheers and ap plause. The standard-bearer of the party in the eusuing campaign is lion, .lame G. Blaine great cheering, known throughout the land as oue of its truest and ablest representatives. He lias been called to this position by the vote iff the people, in recognition of his es pecial fitness for the trust, and lu admiratioy of the surprising combination ot brilliancy, courage, faith fulness, persistency and research that has made him one of the most re markable figures which have appeared upon the forum of statecraft iu any period ot this country. That such a man should have enemies and detrac tors is as natural as that our best fruits shou d be infested with parasites, or that there should exist small and envious minds which seek to belittle that which they can never hope to imitate or equal, ami that he shall triumph over these and lead the Koptibiican hosts to another vic tory in November is as certain as the suc cession of seasons or the rolling of spheres in Ibeir course. Gentlemen, again I thank you for this visit of congratulation and extend to you, one and all, my grateful acknowl edgements. Cheer.-. The speech-making continued to a late hour. Among Ihe orators, who were all ex-soldicrs, were Senators Plumb and Harilson, General Cutcheon, Michigan; General Nathan Goff, West Virginia; Hon. A. H. Petlbone, Tennessee, and General T. M. Ilayne, Pennsylvania. TROUBLE BREWINM. Another Scene of Violence and HIondheiI Impending In the ' Dark aud Bloody Ground." Mt. Sterm.no:, Kr., June Z. The sensational city of Kentucky prom ises, within the next few hours, to have a commotion beside which all others will pale into insignificance. Green Clay, a boy sixteen years of age and highly con nected, was ass.-iti tcd by a negro two or three years his senior and much larger, and was severely beaten with a club. Clay,, rising from the ground, bleed ing and bruised, resented the attack by draw'sig his knife and plunging the larger blade into the negro's back, breaking it off in the marrow of the spinal column. The negro is not yet dead, but is sinking fa.-t, and cannot live through the night. The negroes swear vengeance. Their purpose is to surprise Clay at bis home and take him out and hang him. The Cerro Gordo Guards have been no tified, and at a moment's warning will bo called into requisition. The white people are thoroughly incensed, and if the con flict occurs, the streets of Mt. Sterling will run with blood. The citizens aro awaiting the least developments with tho most feverish anxiety. The leaders ot the would -DS mob have been organizing their forces, gathering arms and laying in ammunition. Young Clav is out of town at his brother's under a heavy guard. M a A Disastrous Fire.

It was because of the energy and faith of Dr. Cheney in its beginning. Applause. I was then but twenty-four years of age, and I co-opi r ated with bin in securing the first en dowment from the State. The result was worth more to me than the 19,009 endowment was to him, for it taught me the value of perseverance. I don't be lieve another man or a regiment of men could have wrung 1,500 cents out of that Legislature.
