I ople, or to lead the thought and
e conscience of the Nation.
Their political activity way be
summed op thus: Violent antag
onism to the opposing prty ; a
-4irfnl looking after public pat
ronage; the organic itioti ot tbe

as an ailoiuey, presented tbe met -its
of tbe famous wood pavemeui
to tbe Board of Public Works, ana
bad be not g ne to New Clean
in the winter of '70 7. Granting
for tbe sake of argument, all thin,
I ask: ''iVhat tbeut Are we
compelled to cant away our confi
dence iu tbe bou of Orange, uvinl
nated the other day io Chicago !'
1 answer, " No ; no! "
It wa in the winter of '72 .3 tbat
tbe Credit M bilier developments
aroused and alatoed tbe country.
They seemed to point to a cor rap
tion in I'ulilio lite that bad uot
bfen peii..lly KUfpected. Mr.
GaifieldVuanie.frum uo real fault
of his own, appeared iu the histo
ry. No sooth r had tbe Doom of
Representatives disposed of tbe
Mobilier tban tbe sahry leginU
tion was enacted. Toe Forty
second Concreea had beeu uu pop
ular; tbe Mobilier transactions
bad scandalized the country; tbe
public bad always been jealous of
Congrssimeu vutiug up tbeir own
pay ; so tbat everything conspired
to stir tbe public indignation to
its depths. A wave of ot jurga
tioo, bearing upon its breast
stesl," r .bfi," grab,' start
ing on the Atlautic shore rolled to
the Pacific and back again. Mr.
Gai field had vigoiounl opponed
tbe increase i f mi lariea Hat when
it was forcHl up ui one. of the
yreat apptoi'Dation hills by a de
cided vo:e, when the couferenoe
committee iuaiated that it should
remain, thru tuitber ieKitaeo
was either nngatoty or would in
volve au extra aessiou ol Gongretsy
be concluded tbat It was bit dnty
to accprenoH and vote for the bill
wirh i tm obnoxious measure. In
so doing bt may have been wrong;
tbat qufatiou 1 do not argue: my
proportion is that be was honest
and patriotic. Perbsa I may be
tndulgid in saying tbat I was in
Washington at tbe time, tbat 1
was thoroughly familiar with all
the history, and then, as now, I
kn as ooi fi lent of bis upright
ness as I can be of any umu's up
righttifMi. But my great point is
yet before me.
Tbe Western Reserve is North
east Obio. It was originally set
tied by New Eoglanders, and its
population has tbe thrift, tbe keen
ielligenoe, the habits of local
self government, tbe political in
stinuts, and tbe morals of New
England. Tbe mail clerks on Mr.
Vandeibilt'a railroad will tell yon
that thete is no population rf

ot punts tbau any other part. It
eaiiy broame deeply iutereHlel iu
th- an n slavery movement; aud
thin greatly quickened the interest
ot the people, io public att .Ira.
Wbai id more, tin district bad
tonned a set of most valuable tra
ditt'Hin of its own. In 1823 it
elicieo Etidia Wbittlesy to Cou
gren8. and kep: him there uutil
1839, a period ot sixteen years.
Mr. Whittlesey may not Lave
been a man of extraordinary men
tal force, bat he was a man of
dear intelligence, of traiued abil
ity, and of varied knowledge.
Above all, no man of greater pro
bity ever sat. iu the halls of legis
lation. It was his nueullied hon
esty moret tbau bis ability, tbat
ltd President Tyler to appoint
him Comptroller of the Treasury,
an oftix tbat be held through two
Presidential terms. LI ere, by bis
unquestioned honesty be, first of
all men, so far as I know, won tbe
oame of " Watch dog of the Trea
miry." Ou the retirement of Mr.
Wbiltfeeey from Oougreee, Joshua
B. Gtddinga steps pou the scene. 1
He represents the District twenty
yeats aud then ret l tea. Mrrtlfi

I
dings was one of tbe old anti
slavery leaders ; to borrow a fig
ure from one of (lain -lds old
speeches GidJiugtt was always
found, like the white plume of
Navarre, in the front of the battle,
lie was a roan rf great ability,
probity, and honor. The marked
political character of tbe Nine
teenth District waNtoiuied duiing
tbe eight terms of Mr. Whittlesey
and the ten terms of Mr. Gidd trigs.
N ) District iu tbe Union bad so
large a Republican mnjority, aud
it atood correspondingly high in
all tbe elements of political char
acter. No oonstitm ncy, in all tbe
particulars named, could appeal
more Mtrongly to the ambition of
a Republican statesman.
Nowhere did the Mobilier aud
S tlary matters make a deeper im
pression than on this most sensi
tive and jealous constituency.
General Garfield bad now repre
sented it iu five successive Con
gresses, and, although not so well
kuown as he is to-dy, bis name
bad crossed tbe continent to the
West and the ocean to the E tsfc.
Tbe District felt very proud ot
him. tie was nominated tbe brat
time by a small majority. Tbe
second time without- opposition.
II i third and fourth nomination
were vigorously contested, but ho
ttlumpbed so easily and so deci
sively that ODDOsition lied tbe
11 Id, and left him in secure pos
oession. . No representative held
his constituency with a firmer
band, ilis tenure promised to be
as long as that of Whittlesey or
even Gidd me. Bit now all was
changed. A Republican conven
(ion tbat met iu Warren tor some
local purpose, demanded his res
ignation. Mot men denounced,
all regretted, none defended what
bad bien done. All tbat the
stauncbeat friend of General
Gtittvld presumed to do was to
nay : ' vVaft until you hear the
cane; hear what G.tiilld has to
aay before you determine that he
is a dishonest man.'' ludolge me
agai.i in a personal word. Kh-
tarning borne from Washington
after the adjournment, I found
myself la the midst of tbe tempest
Cleveland editors hesitated to
publish any statement of the sal
ary matter tbat varied from tbe
current version. One of them
aid te me, " This vote has taken
us futhe pit of the stomaco."
Pet baps tbe best illustration that
I car. give of the Intensity of feel
lag Is this : Knowing as I did tbe
ground of General Garfield's ac
tion, and tbe spirit in which be
had acted, I felt It my duty to lay
in private conversation, in the
newspapers, and even iu the Hi
ram ptlpir: "General Gai field is
not a tmef. II i-has not robbed
tbe Treasury. Whether be is right
or wroug l uo not argue ; but
whetbef right or wrong he has
acted honeaily and with an eye
single, tb the pablio good." And
some df my neighbors said : " Mr.
Hinsdale has a perfect right to
think General Gargeld honest if
he can ; but let him keep his opin
ion to hiaKell; he has uo right to
itijure the college of which be if
reaidint, as be will do by bear
ing pablio testimony." Gsrfielu
wrote me from Washington, sadly
but resoloteiy : "The District is
lost, and as eoon as I can close up
my affairs here, I am comiug borne
to capture it."
And he did capture it. He is
sued bis pamphlets, "Review of
tbe Transactions of the Credit
MobiMer Company," and "In
crease of Salaries" fiom Wash
ington, and then came on to Hi
ram. Tbese pamphlets, with a
persoual speech in Warren some
what later, constituted bis direct
defense. When tbe next cam
paign opened he went as usual
upon the stamp. He rarely refer
ed to tbe charges agaiust him, and
never did unless compelled to do
so. He grappled with the ques
tions of tbe day. He went from
county to county, and almost from
village to village. His knowledge
was t great, his argumentation
so loglpal, bis spirit so earnest,
and bja bearing, both puqlic ana
private, so manly, that men began
to ask : " Can It be true that Mr.
Garfield is snob a man as they tell
ob 7" Prejudice vielded slowly
though surely. The next campaign
it was the same thing over. Gar
field bad now to be returned him

be-waa renominated bv,athree-
- rWttMXeSf f 1$ convention.
Two feaTTlater the resistance was
less. ? By tbis time he had won
back tpe masses. - Only those who
bad been very violent in opnosl
tiou now stood out. Tbese had to!
e wpn back one by one. Two
years later there was no opposi
tion -wiatever ; tbe District bad
beenreoaptnred. In 1878 he was
reflected by ths old time majori
ty. Opposition was now no more.
Metlio had. been most denunci
ator!: now were warmest in bis
praiM; and it was actually left to
the (fiends who had stood by him
throagb all the storm to supply
such criticism as every pnblio man
needs to keep him io proper tone
When the Senatorship question
came up last tall, the Republicans
of tie Nineteenth District had bat
one objection to his election uu
willlngness to lose him as their
Representative. And now that he
is on the way to the chair at
Washington, I tnay say no equal
population between the two oceans
will, give him a greater majority
thai this old constituency.
Nor should 1 fail to mark how
the; victory was won, how the
Distdot was reoaptured. It was
notjfecompUsbed by management;
JamM A. liaroeld is no " mana
gerpUtwas not by flattering the
peoffte and appealing to popular
pasipons: General Garfield is no
deojgogae. It waa by the earnest,
straightforward exposition of solid
poll Weal doctrine; it was by tbe
nigii bearing or toe man ; in a
wort, it waa by the impact ot his
meital and moral power upon in
telligent and honest minds.
I! may go farther and say, as it
was in the District,' so it was in
tb State. In a sense, in 1873. he
had beme to be tbe Representative
of Obio.s He passed through
Bute as well as a district ordeal,
and came oat approved.
My reply to the mad-battery is
t Unfold :
lithe esteem and confidence of
as able and honorable Democrats
as there are in the land.
. Tbe vindication and endorse
ment of the gtfeat constituency tbat
waa moulded by Whittlesey and
Giddings,
3. Tbe vindication and endorse
ment of tbe great State of Ohio.
But there is another and more
overwhelming reply than all these
put together. I do not believe
tbat tbe Chicago Convention could
have nominated another man who
touches tbe American mind and
heart with equal power at so many
points. His early life of toil and
hardship, as well as bis sympathy
with tbe working classes, endear
him to tbe toiling millions. There
is a patboa in tbat early history
that touches the, heart of tbe
humble worker. His masterly
grasp of politiccbosines8 quea
tions, and bia steady fealty to
sound doctrine in all the financial
madness and treachery of the last
ten years, gain him the support of
merchants, manufacturers, and
bankers. The school teachers ot
the land count him one of tbeir
number. He is more tban accept
y ble to tbe religious men,-to temp
trance people, and to the ministers
f the Gospel. Eater tbe chill
atmosphere of tbe college and
university lecture aud recitation
room?, whose masters are not stir
red by campaign stortes, but who
respect thoroughness, scholarship
and noble character, and yon fiud
tbat be is a favorite. Enter the
bare quarters of tbe toiling stud
ent, who is struggling with bis
poverty and bis lessons, and the
name of Garfield is an inspiration.
A friend writes me tbe evening of
the nomination from the great
University of Michigan r I can
not refrain from dropping you a
line to-night to coagratolafe you
on the well-deserved triumph of
your friend General Garfield.
Everybody here is in high glee.
No other candidate would have
been so strong. Now let the dem
ocrats do their best," I do not
stand here to villify the democrats
or tbeir coming candidate. Bat
this I say without expectation of
denial from any man. of, aanae or
honesty : No matter who that can
didate may be (I hope be will be a
rgood one), the ballots tbat are cast
for General Garfield will represent
a vast preponderance of wfeat is
best in American society. And
this is my fonrth and final answer
to the mud-battery.
T8TTaw- citizens, I have now re
encoded as best I could to your
call. I fear I have spoken mooh
too long; if so, my excuse must
be what yet remains unsaid. 1
have spoken of General Gai flild's
life, pablio services, and character.
His noble bearing at Chicago was
the fitting crown of hliT" ante
Presideutlal life. In the wortls of
another, his fellow delegates
raised him on tbeir shields ;' aud
when the people have raised him
to tbe chair of Washington and
Lincoln, we shall htve a National
Magistrate of whom we shall be
proud. Theu, rear your tallest
pole toward tbe sky ! Let it stand
firm and upright a be whom it is
meant to honor. Throw from its
top the National banner tbaf be
has so ably served on many a
military and civic field ; aud as its
folds roll out upon the sweet air of
heaven, let them bear tbe dear,
tbe bright, the honored name of
the widow's son, of Ohio's pride,
and of the Nation's statesmen.
Tbe Paris correspondent of the
Boston Journal saya the passion
for lottery gaming is growing in
tbe gay capital. Even tbe city
authorities have fed the fever of
peculation by attaching large
prizes to certain bonds when a
loan is pat on the market. When
a certain number of these bonds
are called in at stated periods, tbe
possessors of tbe lockv numbers
get prizes of $10,000, 8 000, $6,
WO or f2,000, and the result is
that tbe masses are always eager
to subscribe. Superstition plays
a laige part in the operations of
lottery speculators, and tbe serv
ing class of Paris spends italeis
ore in calculation of numbers and
iu the observation ot omens. '
The people of a New Hamp
shire town are so fearfully lazy
that when the wife of a minister
who had just settled io tbat town
asked a prominent oltizan if tbe
inhabitants generally respected
the Sabbath aud refrained fHm
business, tbe citizen replied t
"Madam, they don't do enough
work iu a whole week to break,
the Sabbath, if it wsj all done
on that day."
For the Kortt CfcroIlM ftepbllcM.'
