I that wo lived in a country where the

listened to, and to be obeyed; but we are
told, with as much emphasis as Louis
XlVlh, v.hen he said, "1 am the State"
—\ve are It 11 by tut) President that he
has a policy'which he means to carry
out. Well, gentleman, we have a Con
gress, or a body of men, sharing in the
Government calling itself* Congress—

Tennessee, glorious Tennessee, has spo

I have high hopes of an overwhelming
majority of the best portion of the Amer
ican people whom I know will contrcdict
what, has been said against the noble men
whom wo have welcomed to-day, who will
malfe their voices heard o<er all the land
whose utterances will be heard oven in
the White House. I believe that other
States in October will follow and wil'
vote with you, and wo shall carry . the
40th Congress as we carried the 37th,
38th, and the 39th. (A voice—''What
about Seward's prophecies ?] Well, gen
tlemen, in regard to Mr. Seward's prom-
iscs or prophecies, you know what they
are worth. (Laughter.) I remember —
and I have not a short memory in that
respect —I remember a great many of his
prophetic utterances aud promises. 1
say to you now,gentlemen, that his proph
ecies now will be like his prophecies iu
the pm<t, that ho does not and uever has
understood the strength and the depths
of the love of country and the love of
liberty, of justice, anil humanity, of the
great masses of the American people.—
Aii'l that the people, in spite of the mis
takes of statesmen and of generals dur.
ing the four years of war brought the
country safely through. In the daikest
hours, when public men quailed und
shrank from the burdens upon the peo
ple, stood up with heroic courage. And
I say to you today that tho men who
read their Ribles, who bend their knees
to Almighty God, are prayiny, hoping,
thinking, toiling fir tho country for
which they gave their SOIJS iu war- And
Gentlemen, as sure as we have got on our
side all the great forces that govern and
guide and control matikind, just so sure
will we prevail. They arc appealing to
I astiuu and to prejudice. The patronage
of this Government is shaken in the face
ol every man in Amcr ca. 'I he most
shameful pront:tution of official posver ol
patronage \< now being u-e I in our coun
try, and the men who would us# patron
aj. a« has been done during the last
sixty ileys should be forever banished

"That's s >." ApplaU-c.) If there was
no great piinciple involve I, no great c >n
tc I for our country and human rights,
justice and humanity. We should re
buke public men who conduct themselves
as time pubiio jncu are, sending men
round the c uutrj lo vii .ke * out these
I üblie men. Many of the e.vil and mil
,tary tr.bn of the country are supporting
the policy of the President, well know
ing that they are not in favor of thai
policy, but, to hoi I their positions, dare
not utter their sentiments. I'herc is )i
complete despot to.I ty iu America over
the pub!.-'! officers of this country, but l
am glad to find, as I do, that three—
fourths of the men holding oflicc's in th#
country were put there by tho patriot
Lincoln, '"boy are true today as they
were in the pist. It is said Johnson is
supporting the polioy inaugurated by
President Lincoln. Why iu God's name
is he turning out all Mr. Lincoln .. friends
then? It is a fact that those inon were
in office agreeing with Mr. Lincoln and
agreeing with tho great party which
brought him into powor. The great
masses of these public-men were of' his
opinion and could lie trusted. They have
not such a different opinion. They stand
where they stood iu Mr. Lincoln's time,
but they are hunted down from office,
and jet these men have the brazen iin
pudcnce to say, "Wc are supporting Lin
coin's policy." Never did a blacker 112 tlse
hood fall from human lips. Mr. Lin
coin's policy ! He put tho Govern met. t
in liOuisiana iu the hands of loyal meu ;
he put Tennessee in the bauds of loyal
nien. Ho wanted to reconstruct these
States on the basis of fidelity to the
country.
An army struck the weapons from the
hands of the Rebel armies and soldiers;
tlioy prostrated and ground to atoms the
wholcßebel jxiwrr. They were nt our feet
humi iated,conquered subjugated; bntXr
Johnson, when they were conquered anil
powerless, without officers, without any
power under the military raie of the
country, and of our officers c.: inp!etelv.
he has recognized these States with ev
ery one of them into the ban Is of R. b •
els, as in tho State of Tc^a 3 , and after
placing Texas in the hands of Governor
Throckmorton, bo declares that we have
got peace. He makes- peace when he
takes Rebel Stales that were under the
power ol our Government, without any
public offices and put them into the hands
of non-rcpentnnt .aud even unpardoned
Rebels, and then be makes a proclama
tion of Peace. They may get up theo
ries, talk about States being cut tf the
Union as much as you please, but what
we know is this, Abraham Lincoln sought
to put those States, and did as far as he
could, into the hands of loyal men true
to liberty. Then Andrew Johnson lakes
them out of our hands completely, and
puts them into the haßds of the Rebels
of those States. No loyal men are piit
into the offices, and Rebels rule now as
much as when Jeff. Davis was President
of the Southern Confederacy. They can
hot wipe that out. The people of this
country havo carried U3 through this war,
and the great God of Heaven has bless
ed our country,raised upon us his choisest
blessing. He lias carried this country
through four years of war, and lie never
intended that we fhould throw awayTiur
victory. We shall save the country ;we
shall save the cause ot liberty; wo shall
redeem those Rebel States ; they shall go
into the hands of loyal men and lovers of
liberty. These loyal men many of them
may die in the contest; many of them
may be hunted down as they have been,
but, gentlemen, the loyal musses of the
South, under all, will be protected «tud
encouraged through our efforts here. —
Wc are fighting tlieii hattlee, Bad we
mean to fight it until wo win, and wc
know we shall win it. [Applause.] 1
tell all men of position whether they be
Rebel* or Copperheads, that we are ac
cusiotood to sleep on the field of victory,
and we are accustomed to Win battles for
our country and to tho cause of liberty,
and wc intend to do it in the future. —

REMARKS OP J I.IXI E IfCNTEIt, OF MEM
PHIS, TI'NN.
The orator who announced that the
' Ileart id' this people is as pure as the
heart of a virgin," but announced a tru
ism.. tVe delegates from the South feel
and appreciate he fact that we are among
men w ho act, and follow the honest con
victions of their hearts,, while wo ac
knowledge tl e painful truth that we came
from men whose hearts are filled with
falsehood, and whoso tongues tho yofes
most astonishing thing that wc encoun
tered is. that under any circumstances,
pooplc who have been born and educated
in tho free North, should participate in
the sentiments which has engendered and
carried out this Rebellion. That people,
living upon freo soil, should bo bot/ayed
by the corrupt treachery of a'man elected
by free and loyal votes, is a matter of su
premc astonishment. We find that in
the City ot Philadelphia law reigns su
preme. No Coutrovcisy excites even an
unkiad feeling. When political contro
versies are introduced ir ourcommnnilics,
even as a tubject of conversation, the
bowie knife and revolver spring forth the
very moment au unpleasaut word is spo
ken. The contemplated withdrawal of
the armies cf'the Federal Government
from the Southern States, causing great
appiehcnsion. We know that theu the
power which has so long controlled the
Government, will again be in full sway,
and there will be co more freo ballots, and
the oppression if the people at the polls
will again be what it has been in the
past. There are hut two things that can
save the loyal people of tho South ; cither
that Andrew Job Won, !n the course that
he is'aow J ursuin;:. shall be unfitted for
the high position which he JIOW holds, or
that, at the best meeting of Congress, 'ie
shall be removed frotn office by the
! process of iuipeaehuieut. [Great ap
! plause. j lam aware that tho proposition
: is received by titn'rd with hesitation ; but
j I tel! you, and I want it to be understood
' by the loyal population of the North that
' there is nothing done that will save the
I Southern loyal men fioiu destruction or
extirpation. It is a crisis through whioh
wo must pass to secure safety. The ques
tion must be -met by the representatives
of the free people of the North. Speech
es outside tho Union League.
Gen. Hammond of Missouri upokewith
great contempt of Johnson, thought that
the Republican party should keep him in
the field as lecturer in their behalf.—
[Laughter ] Ho remembered when the
President favored negro suffrage in 1802
and Andy John on «aid4o him : "Then
is no way on the face of the earth to hav<
peace in the country until we dislraneliis
the Kebels aud give their land ami vote
to loyal black men." A Confederate Sen
ator lately told the speaker that a plai
had been formed by what Johnson agreet
not to secure the Rebel and Copperheac
vote. Three cheers were given for tliel
Southern loyalists. Gen. Tomgee ot
North Carolina, of Sherman's army, said
he came from a State that was fairly
corned with holcir, in which loyal men had
hid thetiiselvts from tho persecutions of
Rebels. I briefly stated that the hard
ships they had endured at the hands of
Rebels. They are to-day worse of! than
at that !imc. They arc suffering more
from the damned "my policy" than rven
under Confederate rule. [A voice, "Dam
my policy"—cheers] Wo uro without
power to ourselves. [Here a grand torch
light procession passed and was cheered,
and returned the salutations.] In North
Carolina there are no Johnson men ; only
Jeff. Pavis and Union men, both of whom
look on|Johnsonas a double-dyed traitor.
The Davis men ore largely in tho major
ity, aud Union men have to walk with
fear and trembling. We ate determined
to give blacks equal rights with us above
the Rebel: [Applause.] The rock of
Southern pride, which standi iu Ihe way
of giving suffrage to the negro, must be
overwhelmed by tho avalanche of justice,
until not an atom of it can be found.—
Until that is done, there is no more
chance for a Union man in the South
than for a fat pig near a butcher's shop.
Wo are now iu tho position of the fat
pig, liable to all Ihe cruelties that the
butcher can invent. Once he had been
idiot a', by a Rebel, who is uow iu his bed,
sick. [Laughter.] Tho Union men in
his district, 2,000 strong, had organized
to defend themselves, in order to live at
all. During the last three months, 1.800
Federal soldiers had been driven out of
North Carolina.
There :3 & hitvy rain descending, and
hundreds of umbrellas went up ; but iu
spite of it the crowd remained to hear a
short speech from Mr. Stewart of Mary
land— a repetition of former speeches.—
Senator Croswell of New York gave a
brief but graphic history of the extinc
tion of Slavery iu Maryland.
ItonnEll Ot'T VVITTFIK— A short litr.c
since, an Irishman left Copperpoli, Cali
fornia, for San Andres, with bis carpet
sack on his back, and when about five
miles on his way vas met by a " road
agent" (tho name given in California to
highway robbcis) who demanded his
money. Pat immediately dropped hip.
pack on the ground and sat down on it,
and addressed the man.
' Holy Virgin, yer. linistlc very thick
along this road ; I've only come five miles
this morning and this is the fourth time
I've beea stopped and askc I for money."
" la that so asked the robber.
'" By my soul, its tho gospel truth,"
replied Pat.
" Well, then, you had better proceed
on your way ; it wouldn't pay lo go thro'
you now."
Pa* shouldered his carpet bag, and the
two were about, to separate, wheu he turn
c l*.iund aud said :
" lluvc ye ivor s'eli a thing about ye
as a match ti> light me pipe wid ?"
Ho was supplied with oue, and the two
separated. The Irishman had five hun
dred dollars in gold coin iu his pocket,
and by this piece of shrewdness saved it.
—A Ocrman paper relates the follow
ing incident of one of tho* iatc battles,
which is not altogether- incredible : A
young soldier in tho midst of battle,
thought he saw on the grass a four-leav
cd shamrock growing. As such a plant
is rare, and is considered to bring good
luck, hfstooped to take it. At that very
jnstanj a cannon ball passed ovsr his
head so near that he roust havo been
killed if ho had not been bending down. I
The man so miraculously saved has sentl
the plant to which ho m/es his life to]
his betrulbed at Kon gsburg.
—Fotniof the President's recent ap-1
pointnieu's are disappointing him. They
do nothing he says to support his policy,
and bo might as well havo retained the
old incumbents. As the President aim
ed to betray his friends in the new ap
S ointments, he ought not to compla'n if
le new appointments betray him.

VULGAR LANGUAGE. —There Is NR
muo'i connection between the words nn<«
thoughts as there is between the thought?
and tlie actions. The latter are not only
thfe expression of the firmer, bnt they
have a power to react vpon the soul an
leave the stain of their corruption there
A young man who allows himself to «BP
one vulvar or profane word has not nnh
shown that there is a foul spot upon hi •
mind, but by the utterance of that wori
he extends the spot and inflames it til'.,
by indulgence, it will poluto and ruin
the whole soul. Bo careful of your
Words (H of your thoughts. If you con
trol th 3 tonjjue that no improper wor'.'i"
are pronounced by it, you will soon bo
able to control the mind, and save that.
fro;n corruption. l'ou extinguish in
flames by smotheriogit, or by preveniin;;
bad thoughts bursting out by language.
Never utter a word anywhero which you
would be ashamed to rpeak in the pre
c nee of the most refined female, or the
religious man. Try this praotic« a little
white, and you will soon have command •
of yourself.
A DIFFERENCE. —It is reasoned tho
"John Brown made an unlawful attain nr<
to t'es r>y slavery, which resulted in t' •
killing of a dozen men. Hn was arr«
ted,'triel snd hung. Jefferson Da
made au unlawful attempt to perpetuv.'.
si ivory, which resulted in Ihi death of »
million ol men. He is in duratiee viio,
but fio'n present indication# but litt.->
ehan ■« of being hung. From all t
which wo gather (bat this is (reason w •
thy of death to take up arm's agai/
'slavery, aod no-traason to take up arpv
for its perpetuation. If Jeff. Davis !
iiiot hung, the execution of John BroWn
Bos cold bfo'o'ded, unj'ustifiabfe mnnler.
