VERMONT WATOHMAN & STATE JODRNAL: WEDNRSD VY, UGUST 5, L89G.
3 WEDNESDAY, AUGUST C, 1800. Itcod's Oponlng. At a great masa-ruootiug in Malno Hon. Thomas B. Itcctl oponod tho campaign wlth bucIi a spccch ns only ho cnn raako. Suhjotncd nro somo cx tracte: " Just now thoro ls a great doal of froth nnd foarn In tho nir. IIow vory suddenly nll thla rush nnd atlr has sot itsolf into action. Two tnonths ngo no mnn of auy standltiE would havo riskcd his roputntion ns n prophot by hinting tho slightost doubt of ropublican auc ccss. Ilowovor fnr tho ropublicnn party miglit hnvo fnllou short of por fection, novcrthclcss nll tnon folt thnt it wns tho bost pnrty, just now, to draw nlgh lo for whatovcr Is to bo loft to us of tho eouud govornruont, commorcinl success nnd busincss prospcrlty. On thnt wo woro nll ngrccd. "Two months havo sltpped away hnrdly tinio to ripcn a Etrnwborry, much lcss n systcm of llnnncc nnd thoro nro thoso wbo toll ub thnt nll things hnvo cbnnged, thnt thcao vory mou who woro boing nrrnyed for docont burial hnd burst tho corcmonts of tho gravo, nnd, transflgurod by Bomo now ar rangotnent of crowns of thorns and croaacB of gold, woro to lcad ua to n now hnpplnoss, nnd ovcn rcpalr nll tho dnmngo thoy thomaelvcs hnd wrought. Now this may bo ao, but to mo it doca not Bccm probnblo. " Porhnpa aomo ono will any horo wo hnvo a crcativo pnrty which haa aprung up In a night liko a muahrooni nnd cro atod n now Bystem of flnanco. My frlond8, you will flnd thnt thnt mush room ia not good to ont, nnd thnt thnt ptogrcea will land you in tho dllch. Now all progross avoids nll ditchee. " I nm bound to any that tho ovil which has como to us by an unwiao rc vialon of the tarlff hna bcon grently og grnvntcd by ono of its consequonces our loas of rovcnuo. Ilnd thoro boen no deilcit, thcn 8100,000,000 of bor rowcd gold would havo cnrricd us through tho criais snfo and sound. As it wa8, the conatant drainof tho deficit, contiuually confounded with tho ro dcmption of gold, haa so offcctod tho imaginntiou of our pooplo thnt confl denco cannot bo reatorcd until our rovenuca equnl our oxpenaeB. " Monntimo, let U8 sce whnt is pro poaed by thoao gcntlcmcn who, within tho lnst two months, havo diacoverod a now curo for all tho ills HoBh ia heir to. and who proclnim, ns they dld four yeara ago, that thoy alono hold proa pority in their graap. "Their romedv is tho coinnge of si! ver nt 16 to 1. Whnt doca thnt menn ? " Hcretoforo, whenovor gold aud sil vor havo stood togother it haa been nt the tnarkct value. Whon wo tried to mnko gold nnd Bilvor circulato togethor wo hnvo nlwnya married according to thoir markot value. To-day wo flnd them, not 16 to 1, but 31 to 1, nnd wo nro going, thoy aay, to lift silvcr to twice its value not by the univeraal senao of mankind, which alono makcs values, but by tho statuto of theUnitcd Statcs, Bingle-haudod, againat tho civilized world. "Why should the United Statcs try to dothia alone ? "If tho demonetizjtion of silver is n dtaeaao at all it ia a world diaenao. If it is n world disonso, how can it be rencbed oxcopt by a world reracdy? Intornational binietalisni I can under staud, but this driving out of gold and Bubatitutiou of silvor is only silvor inonometali8tu for tho TJuitod Statee. " If, then, wo aro going to havo a dollar inferior to whnt we havo lo-dny, what will be tho offect of it? Ilighor prices, thoy aay. Not for overything. If you havo a hundred dollara in tho Bavings bank tc-day you can got ono hundred gold dollars from the bank. If this wild project succceds, and you nro paid in 8ilvor, you will get tho $100, but thoy will bo llfty or sixty or sov-enty-cent dollare. If you havo a pen Bion, that muat bo scaled doivn. If you havo a bond, thnt goes dowu, too. Will tho wnge-earnor be any bettcr off? "What you buy will go up. Will your woges go up, too? Thoro you havo ox perienco to guido you. Wagca duting greonback timea uicnaurcd in gold did not go up ns othor things did. They went up part way, but not all tho way up, and woro vory slow about that. But wouldn't busincBa bo bettor for raoro mouey? It might bo nfter a terriblo crnah with badf currency, nnd thon wo would havo to got back again. Brandy may aecm to strongthcn, but plnin bread and nieat aro the sureat. What wo want is not moro inonoy, but moro capilal monoy nlways comes with capital. Wo havo money now, moro than wo can uae, lying idle. Wo havo juat exported a lot of it. Money is tho transforrer of capitnl, as n hay-rack aud horaoa is tho transferrer of hay. Moro hny-rncka will novcr mnko moro hay, but moro hay will require moro hny racka, and is suro to got them. "Our capital is groat, but tho United Statea ia very much greater. Thoro aro millions of equaro miles and sovenly llvo milliona of peoplo nud undoveloped rlches wilhout Btiut. But thoro is not capitnl onough to keep sevontyflvo milliona of peoplo nt work. Whou aro wo the moat proaporous ? It is whon tho Beventy-flve millioiiB nro all nt work, nnd whon thnt happens wo borrow of tho rost of tho world thousauds of mil liona of dollars, " Now just as soon as this olection is over and tho futuro poaition of tho TJnitod States is assured, both as to money nnd to tho omploymont of our peoplo, cnpital is rcady to corao to us from abroad nnd from our own pooplo and wo shall ngnin be proaporoua. " God koops tho futuro for himBolf. Only his oyo can eoo in tho fulncBB of trulh tho daya to como, but he has loft us aomo glimpso of tliem in tho past, nnd if men will only tnko guidnnco from oxporionco thoy will seo, na thoy cnn in no othor way show, thoir supori ority over tho brutea which poriah. " You and I, my frlonda, havo beon togethor for twonty yoars two-thlrds tho lifo of n genoratlon of mon. It would bo singular if tho paBt givoa u no holp In tho criais of our nffalrs. But it cnn. wo hnvo bcon throuch nll this onco boforo. Tho greonbnckors of 1878 woro not bad men. They woro slncoro nnd hnd n bettor caso than tho Bilvor mon of to-d.y. In fact it wna much tho anmu uaao. Wo must hnvc art flclal inflatlon and choapcr monoy, thoy sald, or blickcst ruin nwnited us. It wna n hnrd timo. "Prlcoa woro low nnd work wns Bcnrco; tnxos wcro high nnd dobta hnrd topay; but wo rccovorod nnd roaumod speclo pnymonts. "From thnt momont tho capital of tho world wn9 ntourdiBposnl. Wo hnd a good tariff, which mado ub do nll our own work, and from 1870 to 1803 four tecn yoars of prospority, which placcd tho United Statcs in a grcat poaition in tho world. "If wo do tho liko thing to-day liko things will follow. Wlth rov onues equnl to our omorgoncles un duo oxport of gold will conso. With tho cortainty that tho dollar pnld will bo equnl totho dollnrlont will como credit nnd confldonco.

We havo bcon fighting ot tho cdp;o of tho wood8. Evory cartridgt-box has been otnptlcd onco or moro, and onc fourth of tho brigade hns melted away in dood and wounded and missing. Not a clicor is hoard in tho wholo brigade. wo know tnat wo aro uotng uriven foot by foot, and that whon wo break onco moro the lino will go to picces and tho cneniy will pour through tho gap. Horo coracs hclp. Down a crowdcd highway gallops a battcry withdrawn from somo othor position to savo ours. Tho ilelJ fenco is scattcred whilo you could count thirty, and tho gutis rush for tho liilla boyond us. Over dry ditches whoro a former would not drivo a wagon, through clumps of bushcs, ovor logs a foot tnick, ovcry horso on tho gallop, cvory rider lashing his teatn and yoll tng, the sight bchind us mado us forgct tho foo in lront. Tho guns jump two feot high as tho hcavy wheels striko a rouk or log, but not a horso slackcns his pace, not a canuoncer losos his seat. Six guns, six calssons, slxty horscs, eighty nicu, raco for tho brow of tho hill, as if he who should reach it tlrst would bo knighted. A niomont ago tho battery was acon fueed mob. Wo looked again and tho tix guus aro in position, tho detachcd horses hurtying away, tho ammunltion chests opon, and along our lino runs the command: " Qive them one moro vollcy and fall back to support tho guns." Wo havo scarcely obeyed when booml booml opens tho battory, and jots of flro jump down and Bcorch tho trces under which wo foutrht and desnaircd. The shnttered old bricado has a chance to breathe for tho flrst timo in three hours as wo form a lino and lio down. What grim, cool fellows thoso cnnnoncors aro. Every nian is a por fec. machino. Bullcts splash dust in thoir faces, but they do uot wince. liullcts eing over and around; they do not dodge. There goes ono to tho earth, sliot through tho head as ho sponged his gun. That machincry lo8e8just ono belt, raisses just one cnp in tho wheels, and thon works away again as boforo. Eyery gun is using short fuse shell. Tho ground shakes and trcmbles, the roar shuts out all sound from a line three miles long, and tho sholls go shrieking into tho swamp to cut trees short off, to mow great gaps in the bushcs, hunt out and shattor and mnn glo mei until thoir corpsos cannot be rccognized as human. You would thiuk a tornado was howling through the forest, followed by billows of flre, and yet men livc through it, nye, press forward to capturo the b&ttery. Wo can hear their shouts as tboy form for the rueh. Now tho shells are changcd for grapo and canister, and guns aro Qrod so fast all roports blcnd into one mighty roar. Tho shriok of a shell is tho wickodest sound iu war, but nothiug makes the ilesh crawl like the demonincal singing, purriug, whistling grapo shot and the serpent-liko hias of canistor. alen's hends and legs aro torn from bodies and bodicscut in two. A rouud shot or shell takes two men out of the ranks as it crashos through. Grapo and canister mow a swath and pilo tho doad on top of each other. Through tho smoko wo seo a swarm of men. It is uot a battlo line, but a mob of mon desperato onough to batho thoir bayonets in the flamoof tho guuB. Tho guns leap from tho ground almost as tlioy aro dcpresscd on tho too, and shrieks and screams aud shouts blond into ono awful and steady cry. Twonty men out of the battory aro down, and tho Qring is intorruptod. Tho foo ac ccpt it as a sign of wavering, aud como rushing on. They aro not ten feet away whon tho guns give them tho last shot. Tho diechargo picks living men off their feot and throws thoru into the swamp, a blockenod, bloody mass. Up, now, as tho cneniy aro among tho guns. Thoro is a silenco of ten seconds, and thon tho tlnsh and tho roar of more than 3,000 muBkots and a rush forward with bayonets. For whnt? Neithcr on tho right nor loft, nor in frout of us, is a living fool Thero aro corpses around us that havo been struck by three, four and ovon six bul lcts, and nowhero on this acro of ground is a woundod man. Tho wheels of tho guns cannot movo until tho hlockado of dend is romoved. Mon cannot pns from cdisson to gun with out climbing over windrows of dead. Everv gun and wheol is smcarcd wlth bloodj overy foot of grass has its hor riblo frt'iin. HiBtorians writo tho glory of war. LSurial partios saw murdor whoro his toriaus saw glory. Chicago Tribune.

Vo woro on picket, two nt n post, and atrctchcd nlong tho lino of nn old hedgerow, whoro thoro had onco beou a rail fence. It was about ten o'clock in tho foreuoon. I was ac counted a protty good shot, aud so ono of my comrados camo to mo and taid I had an opportuuity of proving ray markamauBhip if I wantod to, for ho couM Beo somo robols n inilu distnut. Wo wero partly concoaled by tho hcdge tow lu front, but looking through I plainly dlscovorodagroup of rcbels,and nslt waa thon thofashiou loshoot robels on sight, I sont a bullot lu thoir mldst, Tiioro waa somo constomatlon visiblo, but whcthor anybody was hurt or not I dou't know. About half att hour of terward I was torrifled by tho stlng of a bullot on my chook and tho roport of a gun not two hundred ynrds in front. Whou I rocovored my compoauro and was ablo to gathor in tho situation, I found that a robol had cnwlod up on ub as nonr as ho darod, and taking good aim at my hoad had pullcd tho triggor. lt sccms that tho bullet struck a small sassafras, glancing tho bullet, but cnr rying somo bark and spllntors into my chcek. It was thtis I got a scratch. It wna thought that ray bullot had dono somo mlschlef on the othor rcbel and caused somo cxaspcrallon. Tho robol crawlcd back as ho camo, and for tho timo bolng I had no dlsposltion to run aftor him. Exchango.
