Tbo flnt speaker Introduced wu Hon, Sidney Clarke, of Kansas, who laid ho ipoko with much pUuoro, beoansa tho gnat movement in which tbojr wert engaged bad hi hearty approval. Fortunately for the laboring mtn of tnle ctinntry, tbo Government plaood no obstacle In tholr path. It It laid that Un honri of labor would lead to Idleness and tIco. 8ah an objection wax unworthy of tha American people, and tha worklngmen had ax much right to b laiy ar that olaaa who ratiad that objtotlon. AppUait If legislation has bttn madt to prottet property ertatad out of tbo Industry of mtn, why, thtn, wu It not right to legislate u to tha hoara of labor? Tho reduction of hoarx woald not molt In tbo reduction of wages, Tbli objection wu urged In England, bat statistics had prorad that It wu entirely ground let .

Tbo leourity of our Govern mtnt ta with thoio who work, and tha worklngmen unit have tlmo for mtatal eultara. At thtx time tha worklogmta from tho nary yard, wtlh Mann. Etoolatr, Harvester, and Cross u marshals, entered tht hall, btarlag transparen cies on which war appropriate mottoes J t Horatio N. Eaeby, Esq , wu Introdaead, and laid Tha tight hoar movement may bo considered wlthont fear of contradiction u ono of tho greatest moral reform aver attempted In modern timet. Bat Uko all other reform, It met with Tloleat op position. Bueh oppoiltlon was from lelflih motives only. It wax welt remembered what great opposl tlonwu experienced when tho first attempt wu made to establish tho tea boor system. Labor wax tho power wbleh reclaimed the world from a savage desert and made It a beautiful garden and dotted It with eltlei and towns. Tbo movement wu one which must be punued with rigor, and lucoeii would eventually crown their effdrts, Hon. Mr. Wbaley, of West Virginia, wax then Introduced, and eald. It wu truly gratifying to addreti the worklngman. The speaker had worked and labored for many yean, and knew the toll and goffering of tho worklogman. The Government ohoald let tho example, and fix eight boura aa a day'i work. He believed that eight hours per day waa enough fur any one to work. No oneoould labor ten houri per day and hare health beyond the age of forty yean. Mr. U. Clay Preaix wu the next speaker. He referred to an article which appeared in a New York mercantile Journal In whteh the eight-hour movement wax ridiculed. It was eald In that article that the movement disturbed society. Bo did a thunder storm disturb tbo weather, but It left a olaarer atmosphere. Man should have more time for physical rest, and more time to oultlvate his Immortal soul. We will become a self sustaining nation. Let the working classes from Europe come over, and tbey will find that Uncle Sam hex a house big enough for alL Who built op these great mon uments of national greatness? Tbo worklngmen The worklngmen should put their ahoulden to the wheel and put this eight hour movement through. They should have a school of destgn, a worklngman'e saving bank. They should have social union circles, where their families could be brought together and build up an aristocracy of their own. The day will arrive when It will be more honor to be a bard working, Industrious me ehanlo than to be a brainless lawyer or doctor. Letters from Hon. D, R, Ashley, of Nevada, and Hon. John Hogan, of Missouri, were read and re. oelred with applause. Messrs. John L Haygbe, Richard Emmons, and others addressed the meeting Grand Sabbath School Pkwovstratiov.
