An Illinois Court Scene. A constable that had lately been inducted into office was in attendance on the court, ard wa. ordered by the Judge to call John Bell ano Elizabeth Bell. He immediately began &' the top of bis lungs, 'John Bell and Elizabeth Bell!' 'One at a time,' said the J udge. 'One at a time One at a time Oxe at a time.' shouted the constable. 'Now you've done it,' exclaimed the J udg. cut of patience. ,'Now you've done it Kow you've done i Now you'VE done it,' yelled the consta ble. There was ro standi:1 this; the court, hi. and bystanders broke into a hearty laugh, t the perfect surprise and dismay of the as tonished constable.

From the New York World. A Great Speech Meet ins at the Demo cratic Headquarters Speech if Rich ard OH.ormau. Th e rooms of the Democratic Union Asso ciation, No. 932 Broadway, were crowded to their fullest capacity last evening by an in telligent and enthusiastic audience, to listen to an address by Richard O'Gorman. Hon. Luke F. Cozana presided. At eight o clock Mr. O'Gorman appeared on the plat form, and was greeted with continued cheers, lie spoke as follows: Mr. Chairman and Fellow-citizens: If 1 could have believed that my humble opin ion on the conduct of public affairs was of mrffch consequence, to any portion of the community, I should not have remained silent on the subject. I should have made for myself, if I did not find, some occasion on which to express it. That I have form ed an opinion on the subject is most certain. I should be ashamed of myself if I could have looked at the melancholy events of the last two years without being thrilled with sentiments of concern, pain, amazement and consternation. Cheers. To your invita tion to address this meeting to night I could offer no refusal. To speak my mind to any that care to know it seems to me now a sim ple duty, and I. perhaps, should be thankful that time has been allowed mo for some re flection on incidents that at first aroused only indignation. Anger, no matter how just, is an unsafe guide, arid the way out of great peril is more likely to bo found by the light of sober thought and wise discretion. I know of no nation that in so short a space of time bas accomplished so terrible a relapse fn.ni a high and progressive civilization as th:s doir land of ours, to whoso into.'rit v , honor. a'id sa'va'ion the It ya'ty of our hearts and the devotion of our lives are duo. Great applause. 1 Two years ago peace and plenty walked j togethei t.mi!;ng through the land; to day a j million of men in arms posted along a line ol j battle, s-ix thous.nl miles in leng'ii, surging! to and fin w lli the v averii g fortunes of war, carry with thetn waste, death, havoc and j desolation wherever thev g , an 1 leive. be- i hind them the seeds of fear a:id hatred, from' which, in due t::;i", shall st.irt a further crop j of armed men. It is. perhaps, no exaggera tion to say that bait a million of the bravest and b"st of our pprple have, in that miser- j ible. interval, peri .-bed by the sword there j is mourning iu five hundred thousand deso- j late homes to night. Two years ago we i knew taxation only by hearing other nations j complain of its intolerable burden on thetn - j selves. I o day the national p sources, taxed j to the utmost, scarce can supply the ever in- j creasing demands of toe Government, and i we may prepare ourselves for the certainty, if public all airs continue to be conducted as D"W, that we shall be in one year hence the ni'st heavily t x -d people on the earth. lha"s so.' Two y-'ars ago wo were i governed according to the terms of a written : Constitution, by which wo fondly thought j Ireedoto ol person, of speech, of the press, I were forever guaranteed, forever secured to j thj d "Tellers in this land. Applause. J It; was written bv men just fresh Irom a strug- j ;le ngaii st despotism. They surely meant by that solemn covenant to secure freedom j to thrmsclves and tr.eir successors forever, j Cheets U e thought it a thing too plain to be tuiMtitcrprt'tcd, too clear to be evaded, j too sacred to bo trampled under foot. Ap- j plause.j We had laws, too, and courts, and ; forms of proceeding, by means of which j guilt could be delected aud innocence pro- ' tccted. To day the personal liberty of every one ; of us here in the city of New York depends, not on the Corslitution or the law, but on the good pleasure of one man and his dele- ; gates. Great applause. By Hidden, so- ' cret and lawless arrests, the exi-rcise of free ; criticism of the conduct of public afiairs lias been punished, and as far as possible sup pressed. While the adherents of one politi cal party seem to revel in unlimited license, j all others are condemned to silence, or if j they speak at all, to speak with "bated, breath aud whispering humbleness," as be comes men conscious of inferiority and learning to be slaves. While one set of men , can freely, boldly, insolently criticise and j threaten the Government, express their coa- j tempt for the Constitution, make aud uu- j make Generals, plan campaigns, alter policy, j set up, knock down, appoint, supersede to j all others is allotted the part of passive ' obedience; on their lips remonstrance is dis loyalty. They must pay for the war. They muat pour out their life's blood like water, but for the purpose and object of the war, in the conduct and management ot the war, they must have no voice, no control; the j mildest suggestion is an evidence of sym- j pathy wilh rebellion, and dignified remon- strance an overt act of disloyalty. They j kcow the money of the nation is wasted, j squandered, misapplied. Cheers. They know that a horde of speculators, contractors. jobbers and politicians, plot and plunder with impunity, and, by one device or other, grow lich on the National disasters. Ap plause. The past has been for two years a series of unprecedented National calamities; the present is au hour of affliction, insecurity, distrust. The people see no sign that the party, whose guidance of public affairs has hitherto caused misfortune, have learned wisdom by . xperience, or that their future conduct wil! be less ruinous than their past. Yet to take -tub steps as the Constitution and the laws illow, for the j urpese ol giving to the Ba ton other ad vi.-ers, of infusing into its veins iew life, new thought, new intellect, Dew tope this is stigmatized as a tacnous op ositiou to the Government and disloyalty - the na'.ic a. It would ssem that to des ribe this condition of Hffairs was to develop .s U.ter absurdity . If the same story had een told us two years ago, of France or pain, or Naples, think how our hearts ould have thrilled with indignation, pity nd contempt. Yet, upen ourselves here u the laud of Washi-igloo, this disgrace has illc-n, aLd the people, either drunk with hreusy or sunk iu a kiud of lethargy a ideous torpor lhat almost looks like death have given scarce a sign of sensitiveness r vitality, while one by ne and bit by bit, heir deartst treasure their glorious herit age of freedom has been filched away. Great cheering. This, to my mind, is the most fearful sign of the timas. I say if ever a nation needed parties needed an opposi tion to the party holding the reins of Govern mentan opposition, honest, bold, fearless, outspoken, unsparing, it is this nation in this very hour. Tremendous and continued ap- plause.j Jt tue party homing the reins ot l ao love my lite tremendous cheenngj Government were composed of honest men I to it from this deep degradation in the sight of statesmen, loving the eternal internet of j of humanity am I to be told that I am d is the nation more than their own little au- loyal man? "No.no." A voice "Unless thority and pomp of power, they would de sire such an opposition thev would culti vate and foster free discussion as the surest sources from which what is true and just and wise can bo ascertained. Cheers. But it is the mislortune of the nation, that in the hour of its sorest need, it finds in control of its affairs a party cunning, not wise; 'that's so!' a party soured by hatred full of per sonal and private animosity the very prin ciple of whose political existence is a b.irren, uufruitful antagonism, and they, with the in stinct of the fauatic and tyrant, fear discus sion, lest it may let in the light on their own shortcomings and betray their weakness and imbecility. Applause. Let mo, how ever, do them no less than justice. As par tisans they have exhibited and now exhibit exceeding cunning and adroitness. Though they have shown themselves utterly incom petent to guido the nation in its peril, great ! applause, they are perfect in the use of all ! the weapons of faction and all the tricks of j debate. One of their most ingenious and successful devices seems to me to be the au- j dacious perversion of words from their pro- per and ordinary meaning, and the results oi j this plau are likely to bu somewhat import ant. " For instance, if I fake leave to question ! the legality, expediency , morality, propriety I of the pol'cy indicated by the President in ! a late proclamation, I am pronounced di's- ! iuf. Dislovat to whom? Disloyal to what? 1 owe no allegiance to Abraham Lincoln, or ! cwjms. not. uy a oasn oi me pen, out oy a to Ir.s ( pinion, or j olicy, or w ill.

Yes, responded Mr. to the Army or to the Navv of the United i States. I owe obedience to law I will al ways pay it. I owe respect to the first ser vant of the American people 1 give it free ly. But it is to the Constitution, and to the Constitution alone, that I owe allegiance. Tremendous applavse This is what I swear to support. This the President him- s.df. and the mombors of his Cabinet and of i Congress, and his soldiers, swore to rest.ect. uphold and defend. Bv violating that Con- Id and defend. st itution, if he does it knowingly and will fully, the President himself may be dis loyal, and to remonstrate, object, protest against this disloyaHy niay bo the solemn duty of every citizen. Cheers. Now, I do object to the pjlicy indicated by that proclamation, sjreat cheering because, in my humble judgment, it is in violation of the Constitution, and, in so doing, I am op posing what I conceive to be in itself a vio lation of that sovereignty to which ray loy al ly is due. The Constitution delegates no nutlioriiy to the rrc.-iili-ut or to Congress to subvert or iater'ero with any of the relations which the different parts of soriety bear to one an o'herin tho different S ates. Applause. Neither the President nor Congress can alter the relation of pireut and child, or husband and wife, in the State of New York. Nei ther can either the President or Congress subvert or interfere with the relations of em ployer or employee in the Southern States. Argue it any way you will and it has been argued every way you can not find in the Constitution any authority or justifica ion of such a course. To meet the difficulty a phrase has been iuvented. The favorers of this policy say it can be done by the "War Power!" What is the war power? It means, if it means any thing, simply this: Ttiat iu time of war or rebellion the President has power from some source to do what he pleases. At this claim of authority I stand aghast. The phrase is ominous. At the sound abysses ot tyranny seem opening at my feet. Cheers. It is large enough, vague enough, for application to any object, lie member, it is the fate of most nations to spend as much of their time at war as iu peace; and it was intended by the framers of our Constitution that, at the first blast of war, or tho first outbraak of insurrection , the Constitution was to bo cast aside, and all civil authority was to yield to military su premacy? Were the time-honored forms by. which personal liberty used to be protected, to lose their potency, and the will of the President or the Provost Marshal, or his deputy, or sub-deputy, to bo tho laws of tha laud? No! No!'' and cheers With all due respect for any who differ from me honestly on the sub ject, I still venture to pronounca my convic tion that all this claim of war power where there is no power, or of war po.ver where there is no war, beyond what the ordinary laws of war amoug civilized nations recog nize it, is an assumption of power without a shadow of authority to support it ! (Great applause) Now, does this j. reclamation mean any thing ? and if so, what does it mean? I think it means a good deal Mr. Sumner thinks it meaus a good deal. Mr. Wadsworth thinks it means a good deal. It means servile war. There is iu it, if you read it attentively, a very plain incentive to it. I believe it will lead to servile war; and I think that to resort to such, au expedient, is a barbarous, disgraceful, hideous violation of civilized morality. Tremendous ap plause.! It is a frightlul error that men are allowed to use all meaus of destroying their euemies lhat malignity can devise, we don't scalp we dou't poison springs we don't kill women and children. We do. not kill men not found in arms. These were the atrocities practiced ages ago. But ages aj,o the humanity and comjjon seuso of Christendom deuouueed them as crusl aud iuferual. -And it is just so with this expedient of exciting servilo war la a nation cr part of a nation opposed to us. It is just the same thing, becauie by doing that we bring about just these atrocities and actually employ agents to enact these atro cities. Now this is not a new question at all. It was discussed long ago. In the war of 1812 iter. was a suggestion oa the part of Great Britian of the propriety of striving to excite slaves of the United States to a servile insurrection, and it was then denoun ced by John Q. Adams as inhuman, base and uncivilized. Great applause. And am I to be told that if I discuss this thing I am disloyal ? Am I to be told that j if I seek to save this country that I love as Johnny Bull should say it."l Now this brings me to the second procla mation. It was issued a very short time after the first. What is its object? I want to call your attention to that. The second proclamation warns us that certain military authorities shall be appointed over us to make arrests for disloyal practices. Let U3 see what will be the effect of that. What do our Abolition friends mean by disloyal practices? We will see. I find by a re port of a certain meeting of Abolitionists, held in this city, that the following resolu tion was adopted: Resolved. That every vote given for James S. Wadsworth is a vote for loyalty, and and every vote given for Horatio Seymour is a vote for treason. Three cheers for Sevmour. In a meeting held iu Brooklyn, a speech is reported to have been made by Hon. Cas sius M. Clay. Hisses. A voice: "Major General," Laughter and groans.! Maior General M. Clay at present making speech-j es. (A voice . "lhe ton of an illustrious sire " Laughter.) Whether the son of an i illustrious sire or not, he is reported to have ! said the "President had co power to do as: he had done, that is, issue these two proc- j lamations, and if a precedent was wanted ! they would now make a precedent forever, j So far as finding lault with Abraham Lin-' coin is concerned, the speaker found fault I Clay, the barging of such a man as Horatio I beymour would have saved thousands of lives. Three cheers for Seymour.) Well, I do not believe Horatio Seymour will be kept very long in suspense. The young gentleman who interrupted Mr. Clay theu savs -'that's so," whereupon Mr. Clav says that of Mr. Seymour is true philan- H'ropy. Now, whether it be philanthropy or uot. 1 lei,va t0 casuis'.s; but it is remarka- b'y suggestive. Mr. Sumner has absolute ly made a speech, and he says it is through freedom as well as by the arms of our sol- i: .1- .1. 1 1. T diers that the war will be waged. By freedom th? Abolitionists mean no freedom for the white, but for the black man. Laughter. Discouragement of enlistments he says is recognized as seditious and. trai-torou.-; but the discouragement of this other force, that is, Abolition adopted by the Government for tho suppression of rebel lion is only another form of sedition aud treason. Now, see how nicely tho argument runs from its romiie to ita inevitable con clusion. First, all persons guilty of d isloy al practices are to be arrested. Second, any one that differs with the Abolition par ty is disloyal, Thirdly, the Democratic party differ with the Abolition party, and therefore the Democratic party are to be ar rested as disloyal. I think, sir, that is a syllugrism. Now, this may be philanthrop ic, lhe same kind of philanthrophy that! can look in cold blood acd without a shud- A ir of f It t ,1 rtui nff rf t n Trrt r, f f li a Srt t li - ern Sta'es that can look to. the pass bility of these States being converteil into a field of desolation like St Domingo t t it sort of philanthropy can, without aiiy difficulty, ac comodate itself to marking out these polit ical malefactors to the Provost Marshal, aud recommending them all for the gallows. The policy of the second proclamation is exactly a fit accarnpaniment of the first. By the first proclamation the black meu io the South were incited to an effort to obtain a treeaom uiey can never enjoy, ;i:iu uy tuu second proclamation the President announ- j r , . i . r .1 1 . i. .. ces that the white man has no rights which the President of the United States is bouud to recognize. (Great applause.) What is the object of this proclamation? It is di rected to the punishment of guilt? Why there are laws in the Northern States, and judges and courts, and juries and prisons to detect crime aud bring it to justice. What is the use of a new and unheard of machin ery ? Is it directed against the Democratic party? Is it directed against the Democrat ic party? Is it directed against the great mass of people? Vhat, let me a?k, have they done to deserve this war power to be exercised upon them? Have not the Dam- ! ocrais given soiuiers io me neiu as many, I believe or more than any other party. (Cries of More.") Has any part3' of man in the United States poured out its lifo-biood I in this war with more prodigal loyalty than they? ("No.no.") Their dead lie thick in the swamps of the Chickahominy and in ev ery field of strife where this miserable war has been waged. Have they grudged theit money? What have they done, or what have they left undone that they should be tho target for the insult of every declaimer of any party? The Abolitionists say that the Democrats are not for the vigorous prosecution of the war. Who but the Democrats have v or- ! onsly prosecuted the war? TGreat cheering.! What is the vigorous prosecution of tho war? j Is it eternal discussion of the merits or this or that General; is it perpetual dissection? Is it an arrangement by which Lincoln may be the Commander-in-chiefone day, Mr. Summer .next day, acd Mr. Greeley groans Commander-in-chief next day, .aughter, until at last no living man can tell who is the one entitled to credit for success, or who responsible for defeat. A cry, 'Fremont,' laughter.! I am for a vig orous prosecution of the war Applause. Whatever is worth doing is worth doing well. Iam for prosecuting it by all the means known to honorable and civilized war, and no more than that. Applause. They say this is a war for the Union, and 1 say that the Abolition party are conducting this war in a rnauaer to make real Union impossible. Cheers. What is Union? What does it mean? I will tell you what it does not mean. It does cot mean subjuga tion, f Cries No no;' cheers ! It does not mean utter annihilation. It does not mean teariDg up by the roots tha very foundations of society in one portion of the nation by another. It does not mean such a nDion as the union of Great Britain and Ireland. Great cheering. A union forced upon a tortured and broken hearted people from sheer exhaustion a union that has sowed the seeds of perpetual hatred, and from generation to generation has been opposed by the unavailing ferocity of despair. Applause Is that the kind of union you want between the North and the. South? Cries, 'No, no.' Do you want the kind of union between Hungary and Austria, between Poland and Russia? Such a union will be a curse instead of a blessing a perpetual cause of weakness and inse curity. There have been civil wars in this world before now, and in many cases, when the frenzy of the war was over, when a lucid interval came, the separated factions have come together;have mutually acknowledged their errors and fused into one nation. And there have also been civil wars where, by the misconduct of one or both sides, the disruption has been complete and eternal. If you want to restore the Union between the seperated factions of the United States this is the way to do it: Take the sword in your right hand and the Constitution in your left. Tremendous and continued ap plause.! The one use vigorously, if it be needed far war; the other use rxfabfully and mercifully for reconciliation. fGreat cheering J 1 am with all my heart opposed to Secession. I see in accomplished Se cession, nothing but disintegration in the North and disintegration in the South. I do not want in my lifetime to see broken into contemptible fragments the great dia mond on which the world for eighty years has looked with pride and admiration. Ap plause. Act vigorou ly, but act by and wish and undor the Constitution. Uow can you ask men in rebellion to return to an al legiance which you yourselves have tram pled under foot. 'That's so. Applause Fellow-citizens, one more remark and I have done. I find in these days that it seems to be required of all speakers on po litical subjects that they should expend some time and some breath in announcing their detestation of the South, its people and it3 institutions. For myself, I decline to doit. Applause. It so happens, fellow citizens, that I was not educated to hate any man that has found life on American soil. To love the United States and its people, from Maine to rlorida, was the lesson that I j learned at mv father's knee. fApplause.l .. " . . 1 r J I then knew no North, no South, no East, no West, but my love, and hope, and grati tude was poured overall the land. Cheers I know the Southern politicians have erred, and erred grievously and a great political error is a crime. 1 believe that, instead of seeking for the protection of their rights un der the Constitution and through the ballot, they have erred in reverting to the arbitra ment of war, and for that error a hecatomb of heroic Southern lifo baa been the melan choly sacrifice. But for all that I won't attempt the lip-bravery of vilifying them at a distance, of unpicking my heart of words, of cursing them like a drab. I scorn it it's beneath a man. Cheers. To them I address no words they can not hear my words. They have sought to have this nut ter argued by the sword, and it is being ar gued by the sword. I address words to those who can hear them I speak to the Aboli tion party I say to them 'don't commit precisely the same violation of the Constitu tion that your declaimers accuse the South of doing. You have the Constitution, the ballot, the laws do not cast these aside and attempt to carry your point by tho lawless violence of military sway. I think that the conductof the war, if left in Abolition hands, will not lead to any speedy end of the war, to the vigorous prosecution of the war, or tt any ultimate reconciliation. Cheering. Abraham Lincoln, 1 thiol:, is a very well- . . . . . . . ... . . mtentioneu out excessively UlaJ vised man and I want that he should have other ad- visers. 1 would have the chief officer ot this great State a Democrat, Horatio Seymour. Tremendous applause; three cheers for Seymour I want that he should be a Democrat, because I believe that the Demo cratic party best expresses and represents the eternal instincts and hopes and interests of the American people. Applause By making this change, by giving, as far as you can under tht Constitution and laws, power into the hands of the Democratic party, I believe in lime the Union can be restored cheers restored in reality not in name restored to what it was long ago free, pro3- perous, contented and happy a union such astaKes places among loose wnonave learn ed to know one another, not in calm alone, but in storm and struggle and wreck thus, and thus alone, I bslieve we shall emerge from this crisis and be a nation oue. in divisible and eternal. Mr. O'Gorman retired amid enthusiastic cheering. The meeting of tho Ciub next Wednesday eveiaing, and the great war meeting at Cooper Institute next Moadiy evening were announced, after which an ad journment was carriod. A Son of Erin while hunting for rabbits, carne across a jackass in the woods, and shot him. 'By my sowl and St. Patrick,' he exclaim ed, 'I've kilt the father of all rabbits! Tns Noise of Battle. The roar of a conflict, whero three or four hundred cannon are belching forth destruction and death, can be faintly imagined by the following state ments: lierschel gives three hundred and forty miles as tha greatest known distance to I which sound has been carried in the air. j This was when the awful explosion of a I volcano, at St. Vincent's was heard at De ! marara. The cannonading of the battle of Jena was heard in the open fields near Dres den, ninety-two miles, acd in the casement of the fortress it was very distinct. The bombardment of Antwerp, in 1822, is said to have been heard in the mines of Saxony, 1 three hundred aad seventy miles distant. Daniel Webstea in His Coffin. The tomb at Marsh field once again openi wide its portals to receive the last f tbf sons of the "Great Expounder." The funeral of Col. Fletcher "Webster took place in Marshfield ou Sept. lOtti. The body was brought down from Bostoo in a richly caparisoned hear3e with four horses. Bev. Mr. Aldeu conducted the services, tha body resting on his father's writing table in the library according to his dying request. A large procession followed ht3 body to the tomb, where the coffin was desposited with the family whom a nation mourns. Bv request of reter Harvey, ana otueri the oaken box containing the groat states man's coffin was opened, and the metallic cover of the glass removed. How were the feelings of those personal friends stirred within them to find those lineament and features which no man ever looked upon to forget, retaining the same color and impreai natural as when ten years ago they gave him up to the grave. The eyes were more sunken, bat tha heavy shadows beneath the brows were al ways there in life. Even in death, and for a decade the captive of a grave, that kingly presence inspired the same deep reverence and speechless awe a3 when in the living temple of his matchless mind. Said one who looked upon his face again, T forgot all else, and can not tell you any thing of the tomb or surrounding objects." The velvet pall with its rich embroidery was in perfect preservation, though deprived of its primitive gloss. In silence the lid was dropped and the box reclosed. Farewell, thou great departed!
