DECORATION DAY! Oration of Governor Hart at Rainsboro, May 30, 1882. Wo nre to-day iu the preseuco of Hie living aud the deati. These ipiiet fjravos spciik to our souls with (m elruence more powerful thnu tho words of nmn. Uover ently let ns stuud by tho places where our heroes sleep, nnd tnko in the lessons which their lives and deaths have tiuifjht ns. Who are these men whoso names we come to honor? What hiwo they done ? What epoch in the great world's history is illustrated by their lives and sanctified bv their deivths I What has been accomplished for mankind end the world, nnd what is the Bum mid value of their achievements?' Grave and comprehensive questions are these, nnd it would t!ike volumes of history to answer. Hi re on this beautiful day, when the fields are growing green, Riid the leaves and blossoms havo come forth under God's genial sunshine, and nil imturo betokens the resurrection, how tit nnd beautiful it is to rest from our work, to let tho plow stand in the furrow and tho tools lie idle in the work-shops, and' come together, old and young, with flowers in our bauds aud love in our hearts, to pay tribute, not alone to the memory of the soldiers who died their country's service, but also to the holy cause for which they gave their precious lives. The uprising of the Americnn people iu the spring of 18(11 was tho most dramatic and wonderful event in this or any other nation. At that time, to a common ob server, tho military spirit of the masses bad become almost extinct. We bad nothing that could -properly be enllcd it standing army, and the body of soldiers kuown as the army of the United States amounted to only about sixteen thousand men. The navy was insignificant, and such ships as the Government owned hnd purposely been scattered to ditterent and distant purts of the world. Ihe wholo country, ISorth, was devoted to the arts ol peace ami in. dustry. A Presidential election had tukeu place in tho fall of lbou. In the December following measures were taken by soniu of the States to secedo from the Union. Northern men became somewhat anxious, but they could not and would not believe that open "war would lie declared against the National authority. Weeks aud months wtut by. Lincoln was inaugurated l'resi d ut. On the day of bis inauguration, stiinding nt the east front of tho Capital nt Washington, iu teuder and almost plaintive accents, he pleaded with his countrymen to obey the laws aud maintain the integrity of the Constitution, rven tucu, though, niut terings wero heard in tho distance, aud clouds began to gather, there were but few who believed it would result in open war. On tho 12th of April, 1H01, Fort Sumter was fired upon, and on the Uith it surren dered to the rebel . forces. Like a flash of lightning camo the news, and, like the voico of God omnipotent, the command went forth, and tho cry, To arms! To arms ! was heard in every town, hamlet and district iu tho land. Patriotism, so long latent, now developed with tremendous power. Tho strong men, the young men the old men, tho farmer, the mechanic, the merchant, tho niou in the professions all classes and ranks aud conditions, heard the cry, nnd by one common impulse moved in the same direction and responded to the cull. The country bocaiuo one vast mili tary camp for the preparation of soldiers for battle. Flags flouted from almost every housetop, and the heart of tho nation was stirred and moved an the waves of the sea are moved by the power of the tempest. True, here aud there a croaking note of dissatisfaction was heard; but the general voico of the great body of the people was theu, as I trust it will ever be, for the pie servaliou of the country at every hazard, and at whatever cost of blood ami treasure. The best classes of the American people, the luost intelligent aud virtuous the voting men of the most promise and the old men of tho most influence all fa vored the war for the preservation of tho Union. It was not a hireling soldiery that fought the country's battles, but it was an army made up by the best blood ami brain of the nation. I need not repeat to you the history of that great struggle. - It is familur to all. To many of you it is not a mere matter of history, but a matter of personal, individual knowledge aud experience. You were, your self a part of it. You soldiers who enlistvd, marched, fought and suffered; you who carry honorable Bears; you wholie comrades sleep on the field of battle where they fell, or in the ipiiot graves to which you bore them with tender and loving arms; yon mothers who saw your dear boy. go out, some to return no more ; you fathers who fondly hoped to lean upon your sons as the stall of your old age and now find it broken over a grave; you wives whose hearts have ached as you listened for some note to come from the distant field of battle, and who waited long for tho return of your hus bands you all kuow und understand bet ter than I can tell, this bloody history. Avcording to the record, there were en listed in the Union army under all calls made by the Government between lMtil and 1S05, no less than 2,705,0111 men, and re duced to a three years standard, there were '2,22S,tls3 men. Of this immense ar my, the largest voluntary army the world ever saw, the State of Ohio alono furnished SlO.ooD men, being over thirteen per cent, of the entire population of the Suite, in eluding men, women and Children, and over seventy-five per cent, of her citizens sub ject to military duty. I hold iu my hand r list of the names of tho men who entered the Union army from Paint township. It is u splendid record. This township alone sent two hundred- aud four soldiers into the field. Of this num ber ten were commissioned officers. Sixty of these soldiers are dead. Forty-five died in the service, and fifteen since the close of the war. What a gallaut baud they were. The life and t'eath of each one of these do. parted heroes would furnish material fur a most interesting "'id. valuable history. Their personal and individual experiences and BUtlerings, their courage and e idurance and the memory of their good deeds, ate all treasured up iu the heurts and house hold, of the people here, where th?y will remain a precious legacy forever. '., There were during the four your, of tile war two thousand two hundred of its "by UU nitV CU- gagements and battles. 1 fu se Included ac tious where but few men were lost, uud al-1 so those tremendous engagement where hundreds of thousands of men met in con-1 uud where tens of thousands of the fairest and bravest of tue Und wut down in oealii s okxh y imrvesi i.-rims inigutj tinny 1)1 I'll 1 1 mum iijuu avu tmiKiicu tliouhunJ ore bleeding iu tUuir ncavca, while of the remainder hundreds of tlumsmuU, though living, ure niuiuied aud scarred for The Government of the United States expended iu the prosecution of this war seven thousand millions of money. loss occasioned by the withdrawal of two millions of men from the fields of indur.try, by which they were chang ed from tho condition of producers to that consumers, would be epial to the direct expenditure of money in carrying on the war. Tho destruction of property by the military operations, would also constitute another very largo item to bo considered. One can hardly comprehend these amounts. But the loss of life and property and tho expenditure of money do not constitute the entire consideration which this country has paid for the preservation of the Union, nnd the archives of the Government, however carefully ki'pt, are very far from indicating extent and measure. In tne records kept the recording Angel yonder, not nloiie are tne lives and the red drops of blood which fell from the veins of our wounded and dying countrymen all counted, but, numbered and recorded there, are nil the sacrilires of the noble women of the land, all tho tears and heartaches of tho mothers who mourn for their children be cause they were not. all the pains and priva tions of families, all the sorrows of brokeu and saddened houies, all the misery andago ny attendant upon that fierce conflict. Eter nity alone can tell, and Omnipotence alone can measure the magnitude of the price paid by the American people for their liberties. No man can state, and no mind can compre hend tho debt which we owe, aye, the debt which tho whole world owes to these defend ers of constitutional government and the rights of man. There is one thing about which there should be no controversy, and in regard to which I desire to be especially emphatic to day. The cause for which these soldiers fought was right everlastingly right. Tho cause against which they fought was wrong nnd utterly indefensible iu every respect. The struggle between the Union and rebel ar mies was not a mere contest between par ties or sections. It was tho result of con tending moral and political forces, which have been warring with each other since governments began. It was a struggle be tween different and opposite forms of civil ization involving the most sacred rights of the hiimau race. I shudder when I think what would have been the result if the government of the United States had beeu defeated in the con test. Imagine for a moment tho condition of affairs. There would huve been a "dis membered union" ; "petty, warring and dis cordant States" ; a so-called Confederate Government with slavery as its chief corner stone ; the saerod rights of millions of God's children trampled down ; the right of a mother to her own babe, of a man to his own wife, to his own labor, ignored ; property iu the blood aud brains and souls of men recognized ; a whole race condemned to nn etcrnul servitude ; a laud of whips mid chains and auction-blocks and scourges und ignorance aud sorrow ; a lund where the doctrine of caste is established, the nobility of labor denied ; tho right to the proceeds of your owu toil denied; tho emiulity of man before tho law denied; the hopes of tho people of other nations disappointed ; the cause of civilization icUirded; the hands on the dial of progress turned back a thous and years ! For it can not be doubted that tho cause of the whole humano race the world over was involved in this contest, and that tho nations of tho world wero watching the re sult. Iu that war of the rebellion tho concen trated agony of two hundred years of bon dage found a voice. The wrongs of cen turies were nppeahng for redress. The everlasting yearnings of tho nation and the race for liberty, juntieo and eipiulity found expression and recognition. Aud now Anierica, after the conflict is over and the dawn of peace has come, rising tip from the graves of her martyred children, with tho brokeu chains or the slave at her feet aud the sacred constitution m her hands, with hallelujahs in the hearts of her people, und adoration to the God who has led us through this wilderness of sorrow, has, 1 trust, ' be gun a career of progress, prosperity and power unexampled among the nations of tho earth. I have indicated iu ft general w ay the character of the calamity which would have bef-dleu the country if the Kebellion had succeeded, and have also faintly hinted at the blessings which followed the victories of tho Union armies. Let me enter more into detail. Let us aualyzo the results of the war. What has been accomplished First, The life of the nation has been saved. Can any of you comprehend the meaning aud force of that single fact ? It was a na tion which Secures to us the blessing of civ il and religious liberty and tho rights of conscience. It protects us in. our homes and firesides. I nder the gc-nius of its in stitutions, churches, colleges and systems of free schools have been established, se curing to all the inhabitants the blessings of education and religion. The great indus tries of tho land have been developed, ami an unparalleled growth in nil departments of eutcrpriso has been witnessed. It is government which affords tho highes', and best opportunity for the full and perfect de velopment. of the race. In no other coun try of the world has man so good a chance to secure happiness, wealth aud distinction us hue. Second. That victory secured and estab lished upon firm foundations and with irre vocable guarantees, the doctrine of the ab solute equality of all men before the law. "God has made of one blood all the nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth," is tho declaration of holy writ. This truth, announced by Divinity itself, during all the years of tho world, bad been disre garded and denied in the practical adminis tration of governments. To my mind was, and is the most important doctrine the foundatiou aud framework of a nation. Now, by tho prosecution and results of the war, this cardinal truth has been cryitulized us it diamond and is set iu the very lurefi-out of our National Constitution, llow glori ous is the thought and how satisfactory it to know and feel, that uuaer our Govern ment the rights of tho humblest citizen are regarded with tho same tender cartas those of the most exalted ; that tho man who lives in a log cabin is clothetl with the saint) po- litn-al power as tho occupant of a palace I that here, all have the same chance iu the j race of life.

Leesou, to obtain the requisite number of names of the ex-soldiers of this community, to bo granted a charter for a l'ost of the Grand Army of the la-public Tho signatures were easily obtained, and hope are entertained of its favorable reception at headquarters. We hear, from Eat Monroe, another uf the too numerous stories of woman s love and man's pertidy, in which the young lady came v:rv near to death in the comae of nature. As is t'Mj frequent iu such cases, a compromise has taken the place of the enforcement of that part of the criminal law, which if effectually administered, might tend to make these occur rences less frequent. On Monday, May 2!. Mr. M. M. Covan nnd his estimable wife were visited by Mrs. Covan's mother, whose age is HI years.
