Grand Ratification Meeting in Chicago. A GUAM) Republican rally was held in Chicago on tho evening of tho 12th, at which 30,000 to 40,000 of the loyal and liberty-loving masses assembled. Stirring and patriotic speeches were made by Gov ernor Oglesby, Hon. Matt. Carpenter, Hon. N. B. Judd. General Davis, and others. Hon. J. Y. Bcammon presided. Ho spoke as follows : Gentlemen : In this groat crisis I believe there are bnt two. parties, as there were but two parties in the war one that ad dressed rebels and rebel sympathisers as " my friends," and one that fought to put down tho rebellion. Certainly we did not, nor did any man that fought the rebels, address the rebels or rebel sympathisers as " my friends." If there Is any candi date before the American people now for the highest office in the United States who addressed rebels or rebel sympthiscrs as " my friends," he certainly is not the can didate of the Republican party nor of the country. Applause He voted in the Convention which was held, and over which he presided, here in 1864, and in which that courageous man who fought not to win, was nominated for the Presi dency, wherein it was declared that the war was a failure, and it must cease. He Aided to bring about that secession by his talk, and by his encouragement to his rebel friends in New York. Our candidate, on the contrary, fought as we voted. He fought it out on this line; he pushed on toward Richmond, lie broke tho egg-shell of treason and re bellion, and brought peace and victory to the country. It is for you to see, my friends; it is for all of us to see that the promises which we made in the time of tho war, that those who fought for us should be sustained by our votes, are car ried out In this election. Those of you who are old enough to re member the war of 1812, know that there was a party at that time that did not sym pathize with the country, but who sympa thised with its opponents. We know that there was an old party then who under took to put down Madison, the war Presi dent of the country. We know that they organized, that they brought forth their candidate, but after the next election they were no more heard of as a powerful party. So it is with the Democratic party. So long as it was the party of freedom, so long as it was the party of human pro press, so long as it sympathized with the downtrodden, it was invincible. But when it arrived at its dotage, when it hesi tated and trembled, and went over to slavery, then it read on the broad sky, M Men, men, tikd uphartin." Thou art weighed in the balance and found want ing. Applause. The American people, at the election of 1864, pronounced the sen tence of death against that party, and it will be our fault if we do not execute it at this election. Applause. Not to detain you longer, allow me to Introduce to you the most eloquent man in the West, the man who was a Democrat, so long as the Democratic party sympathized with free dom and human rights ; but the moment that party became recreant, passed over to tho loving soul of the Republican party, which hits arrayed itself in favor of lib erty and the country. He has been with us since ; lie has been with us all the time ; he did good service for us in 18(14, and though he lives in a State with a man, who, ho far as his acts for the country are con crned, is properly named Doolittle he always docs much. Mr. Carpenter then delivered an elo quent ami forciblo speech, from which we quote a portion relating to the question of reconstruction : Now there are two theories, one or the other of which must be true. The South' ran theory of the situation is that the edict ot secession passed by (ieorgia, took Her out of the Union and out of the limits of our Federal dominions. Upon this theory, when we conquered that State, her soil and her people were as subject to the ab solute will of the conqueror, as would be the soli and people on conquered Mexico or any other foreign power subdued by our army. II this was their condition, then it was not for them to say whether they would have a State Government or not ; it was not for them to say whether they would ever belong to the Union or not, as an Independent Bute. It was for us to ay. It was for the conqueror to dictate terms to the conquered not for the con quered to dictate terms to the conqueror. "You are right" Then, upon their theory, Georgia had no more right to es tablish a State Government, to come back Into the Union, than tho people of Mexico had a right to demand admission into the Union When Scott planted his standard on the halls f the Montezuma. ' Again, the other theory is the North ern theory hi the constitutional theory U that the ordinance of secession was a nullity ; that it was no protection to the rebels of the South ; and, although we chose, as we had a right to do, to exercise as against them belligerent rights the rights and power of a sovereign over his rebel citizens yet they acquired by the ordinance of secession no privilege and no protection. What is the result of that doctrine? The result of that doctrine is that when the war ended they were so many subdued and conquered traitors, taken in the crime, taken with the blood upon their garments. Sensation. They have for feited life, liberty, property, civil govern ment, and everything that belongs to man. Great applause; cries, "That's so! That's s.,1" " You have got It !" I'pon this theory, very clear, the people of Georgia Lad no right to form a CioYruraen? otl w; h.,4 rgh,t q mm VOL. XVI.-JSO. 17. PHKUYSHURG, WOOD CO., OHIO, F1UDAV, AUGUST 21, 1868. 2.00 IN ADVANCE. come back into tho Union. Now, I don't caro which theory the Democrats take for the purposes of this argument, liecause cither one cuts their thnwU from ear to ear. I Great applause and laughter. There Is. then, an end to this pretext that Georgia could settlo this question, Rebels may say when war shall begin, where it shall begin, how it shall begin, hiw it shall be managed, but the Govern- ment shall say how it shall end cheers, and what shall be the condition of the conquered. J" That the ideal" Ap plause. it is about time, after hundreds nnd thousands of lives have been sacri ficedafter we have baptized and fertil ized that rebel soil with the best blood of the land It Is about time that some man had the courago, and the nerve, and the good sense, to stand up and talk tho truth upon this subject. Sensation, applause, anil ciiecrs. it is clear then that Georgia could not reconstruct a Government without our consent. Now, tho only party interested Is the Government of the United States. They, as rebel States, could not do it. The general Government must do It. The question then recurs, where is tho power or the general Government to frame governments in these rebel States? And, in tho first place, the general prop- osltion may be laid down that If the power Is in the Government of the United States nt all, and is not conferred by express woras upon me rresiaent or sotuo other officer of the Government, then it Is surelv vested In Congress ; because tho Cor.stitu- tlon provides that Congress shall have the power to make all laws necessary and proper to carry into execution the Dowers conferred upon Congress and all other powers conferred upon the United States, or any other department or officer thereof ; consequently, if tho power of framing these State governments reposes In tho general Government, and not in the peo ple of Georgia, and, as It is conceded, every man can settle the question for him self by thirty minutes reading, that tho Constitution does not locate this power in the President, or any other specific offi cers, or in the Courts, then it follows necessarily that this power of the Govern- ment is to be exercised throueh the power of Congress, to make laws to carry that power into execution. Hut 1 do not propose to rest here upon this mere sreneral proposition, although It Is entirely conclusive. Thcro arc other provisions ot the (jonstitution, and other distinct grounds upon which this power may be safely rested. Tho Constitution provides that Congress may admit "new States." .Not what is the meaning of admitting a " new State " ana wnat is a state, to be admitted ? Half the confusion that tho public labor nnder, regarding this subject, has arisen from the fact that the word " State," in the Constitution, is used with various meauings. Sometimes it is used in a geo graphical sense, and sometimes in a politi cal sense. For instance, when the Constitu tion provides that any man who commits a crime shall be tried in the "State" where it was committed, it means a geo graphical State, called the State of New York, or oj' Georgia, &c. When it says a " 8tate " may be a party to any suit in the Supremo Court of the "United States, it means a " 8tato Government," or a corpo ration which is created for that purpose. Take, for instance, Illinois. In a geo graphical sense, Illinois was always in the Union ; her soil was always Federal do minion ; her people were always citizens of the United Status. But the State of Illinois, which waa admitted into the Union by an act of Congress, means the curpurauun ur oiaie uuverumoui wuica was organized by the peoplo for that pur pose. Therefore, when tho Constitution savs that Congress shall provide for the admis sion of " new States, it means " new State Governments." The Democrats say. " This is conceded. bnt Georgia is not a new State. Georgia was one of the original thirteen, one of the old States, and clearly that provision of the Constitution does not apply to your case." But. my friend, I have already said that to admit a State means to admit a State Government, and when tho rebels of the South destroyed the State Government which had been In the Union, and put in its place a rebel State Government which never was in the Union, and when the armies of tho United States swept away and left Georgia without any Government whatever, then, when a government shall be organized there, to be admitted again into the union, ana to be restored to the Federal rights, that irovcrnment thus formed is a new government, as much so as though tho people of Georgia had never had agovernment. whatever. What differ ence can it make, for instance, with this power of Congress to admit a State Gov ernment, and to frame a government, whether the people who are to be admitted have once had a government which they have destroyed, or whether they never had a government? For instance, we have, west of the Rock v Mountains, so many square miles of terri tory, and so many citizens of the United States, born in the country. We say, " Those people are our people ; that soil is our soil, and they are entitled to our protection." The Government of the United States establishes a Territoral Government there and protects them un til such time as they come to a proper con dition to be admitted as a State, in full communion, Into the Union. Now, that power and jurisdiction of Congress to do this thing grows out of this fact, simply that if our citizens are dwelling in a compact community, ujxn our soil, without local government it Is of na consequence how that state of things is brought about whether it is because they moved there and had never had a government, or because they have been there and once had a government and des troyed it) ; if they are our people, dwelling upon our territory, and have no govern ment, the United States is bound to put a civil government there. Suppose, for the sake of argument, that we admit what the Democrats claim, that Georgia jiever was out of the Union, and that her territory and people remaining in the Union as we conceded they always did, because they could not get out that therelore she is to be regarded as a State of the Union. The Constitution provides that the United States shall guarantee to every State a republican form of govern ment. Now, If Georgia was not a State of the Union she was a State without any government whatever, consequently she had no republican form of Stale Govern ment, and Congress was called upon in its capacity of legislating and executing that power to take the proper steps to put a republican form of State Government in Georgia. This guarantee of the Constitu tion was intended to secure to the Union a republican State Government for such Slate, without reference to the wishes ol the people of a particular State. If New York, fr instance, to-morrow should call a convention, and change her form of government from a repuhWn to a mon archical government, it would Iw the duty of Congreaa to interfere, because the Con stitution makes it the duty of the United States to see to it that there is a republican form of government for them in New Vork; and if she should call a convention to abolish the form of government and re solve herself back into her original con dition, so much soil, and so many people without any government whatever. Con gress in this case, would be compelled to take particular steps to put a State Gov ernment there for the Stale of New York, because the Constitution ha linpoacd this dmy upon t!i iwu UoYvnmftjit r n4 , j , i ! 1 1 ! j ! j i j ! tho Constitution has provided that Con- ; grvsa shall pass all laws tuiressitry U ex- ! all the powers which the Constltu- i tlon has conferred upon the United States. ! has been so frequently decided by the Supremo Court of the United States so clearly has it been announced by Chief Justice Gardner, especially In the Rhode I Island rase, as It is called, reported in tho seventh of Howard, where he distinctly lays down tho doctrine that It is the prov- luce of Congress, and Congress alone, to dotonnine whether the form of irovern. ment Is republican. It must also have the power to say whether there Is a govern ment there at all, because without so doing it cannot determine whether a particular form of government Is republican or not nnd that this duty rests upon Congress . and when it acts in the premises its de cision Is binding upon every part of the Government, and cannot lie questioned In court This doctrino Is so clearly and I fully decided that there Is no necessity of , argument beyond referring you to those decisions, in two or threo cases they have been before tho Supremo Court, and have been settled beyond dis pute, and upon thorc three grounds that I have mentioned first that tho power is clearly In the Congress of the United States, and Is not conferred specifically upon any other department : secondly the power In Congress to admit new State Governments covers this State, and au thorizes Congress to organize a govern ment for the purpose of being admitted ; and thirdly, tho duty which tho Constitu tion imposes upon Congress to take care that nt all times there shall be a republican State Government for each State from that ground nlone the power is clearly dc duoiole from theso three facts from theso three separate nnd independent sources, we derive the power of Congress to organize State Governments for tho re bellious States, which worn left at the end of the war without any form of govern ment whatever. I have proposed this even ing to confine myself strictly to a discus sion of tho Constitutional power of Con gress, and sliall leave it for another occa sion, perhaps at Galena, on Friday even ing, to discuss tho other independent ques tion, of how wisely and how well Congress has exorcised that Constitutional power. This is a distinct subject too full to be spoken of here to-night under the circum stances and at the foot of a speech. I shall leave the subject of reconstruction, then, with this Imperfect discussion of the Constitutional power of Congress. . That is the only issue which the Democratic platform makes upon the subject. They do not question the details of their acts. They struck the doalh blow to the system by saying that tho whole proceedings are unconstitutional, and therefore void. If I have sncceeded in convincing yon that Congress has tho Constitutional power, my object has been Accomplished, and that was nil I intended to do when I came upon the platform. EXTRACT FROM GOV. OGLESBY'S SPEECH. There is another part of tho trouble. There is another part of tho record that we are responsible for, say the Democrats. We had not enough money to carry out the war. Wo issued our bonds and sold them to our peoplo, and sold them in for eign countries where they were willing and able to buy them. AVo sold them be cause we had to do it. It was a terrible burden. It was a terrible necessity. Yet we had to do it. . Wo had to pay the sol diers. We had to pay the current expenses of the war. We threw them upon the. mantel uui mere was no one to buy them. The specie banks wcro suspended Like brave and sensible men, under the Constitution, we went to work and issued the National Treasury notes. We issued the greenbacks. You have received them, and made them a legal tender. We have, as it were, given our promissory notes put them In circulation to make gold and silver, and have thus become responsible for them for our good faith and good character. We said to the citizens we will be responsible for these greenbacks we will pay them back in gold at par at the earliest practicable day. But we cannot pay them now. The bondholders said, put them in circulation among the people. But if you expect to pay them in National cur rency, you must say how much you are going to issue how many millions paya ble to bearer. . Wo replied through our American Congress. We said that we would pay our debts. Wo said to the people of Europe, to the people North and South, we will issue $450,000,000 and pledge ourselves to issue no more. They said, very well. The soldiers said, all right. We do not go to war to fight for money to fight for the glory of the thing; but to fight for a distressed country to fight for liberty. If tho public had not done anv moro, we would have been satis fied, and the soldier would not have grum bled. We gave this currency to tho country, based upon our honor pledged to redeem It out of the Treasury. I believe at New York city, whenever we will be able to do so, In gold and silver. We never said we would redeem one erreenback with another. Laughter. We never promised the men of the country that thing. It was a deceit and dishonesty of which tho Republican party would not be cuiltv. We stand responsible for every greenback dollar that was issued through the war, and we meant to bo responsible. We must be honest to succeed. There is too much intelligence, too mucn patriotism, too many reasoning, thoughtful men, to be misled by the deceit and dishonesty at this ago of the world. Let us stand upon our record. The bonds put out to bear interest in gold will be Eaid in gold, and tho bonds that are to ear inteicst in currency draw interest in currency. We have given our faith to that. Now, if it was not for a suspicion in the public mind that we were about to depart from our integrity, we all know that the four hundred and fifty or ten hundred and fifty millions of greenbacks and bonds would sell hiidier in the New York, the Loudon and Frankfort markets than they do to day. We are responsible ior tne wuoie action 01 tue National Con gross, and it is our duty to come before the country and account for it I Will but tell you what we are responsible for, if you will listen to me. When the soldiers came back from the war we had to pay them millions of back pay. What did we do? We levied taxes upon everything in the United States, almost that we did. Laughter. We were determined that the soldier should be paid, and that the rebellion snouiu bo put down, and we were determined that we were the men that would do it. Applause. When we found these golden principles written upon our hearts, we early found them written in tne Constitution ot the United Mates. Very well. Ve then went to work to provide pensions for every maimed and wounded soldier for every woman who had lost her husband in the war for every orphan ; and the Republican party had paiu $70,000,000 for pensions alune since the war. And we knew the soldier did not receive nay enouuh duriugthe war, and we went to work and passed a bounty law to pay him in addition to what he had received, besides his monthly pay and his back pay, and the Republican party has paid the soldiers of me Army or tne uepuouc ao,uw,uuu in bounty alone. And if he had need of it we would pay him ten times as much. lApplaucfl.1 But th soldier is a senslblt man, he is a reflecting man, and he knows V. . . puuuo u not nleto pay him all that he h earued. He knows the Re publican party ba oaJd tional Treasury all we are able to pay him. ,10 uuij nir.11 wb ciiuiu pay mm ulty times IW.OOO.OOO. We are going to pay hlwfi'iKJiOBi'ireUiU ytttr. $ow,who is the soldier's friend ? Where Is tho money going that is going from tho Na ceutc tional treasury ? It Is going to pay Interest on the debt wo created in giving the sol This dier his bounty and that gives tho widow nd orphans their pension money, and to pay tho claims of tho different States against the Government for mony ad- VHiiccu uy iuu various mates m enrry imi tho war, a large amount of which I have collected myself sinco I have been Uov ernor of this State; and I am Koiag to got a half a million more before I got through monev givou for tho purpose of paying for the liwscs of property in tho hands of loyal citizens duriug the war another portion of it to sustain "the Freedmen's Bureau, and which we did not sustain an hour too long. I believe we abolished It too soon, I am not suro but we were too hasty about this. The moment tho Bureau is suspended, I fear that the colored man d tho poor loyal white man or tho South will be persecuted and trampled down by these bad people. AVo paid this money in this dircctton and for that pur pose and we aro responsible for that. Wo have kept the credit of the nation uniin- ! l I .1.- l I paired we have saved tho glory and honor of the Republic, and now wo aro in power so far as Congress Is concerned, and out ot power so tar as the .hxecuuve is concerned, and wo are responsible for the action of the Government so far as the National Congress can make it, I have been telling you how tho Repub lican party stood during the country's troubles. Now let us inquire whero did the Democratic party stand? Did they say wo could coerce tho South ? No. Did they say we had the power to save tho Ropublic? No. But in tbo Democratic parly there were thousands and tens of thousands that loved their country better than thulr party. They all voted with the Republican party during tho war, and I have a very warm attachment toward every war Democrat in the couutry, for ho had helped to free tho country. But tho Democrat party opposed every step we took to end the war. When the man umission of the slavo was effected every Democratic paper and speaker In the country opposed it, and every Democratic convention wrote it down before tho world in their platforms. And after the failure of sccessioh, when the Fourteenth Constitutional amendment was adopted, the rebels and Democrats denounced its provisions which prescribed the qualifica tions and conditions of suffrage, laying downa rule that no man who has ever borne arms against the government 3liu.ll ever hold any civil olllce of honor, or power, or trust, forever disqualifying him unless Con gress, by a two-tbirds vote, should remove the disability) that the national debt shall never be questioned, and that the relief debt sliall never be paid. Every Demo crat and rebel in this country opposed these just provisions ; and the Republi can party has put another article into the Constitution in spite of tho oppo sition of these men. We carried the war on, and they opposed. We made soldiers of the colored man and they opposed us. Wo made him a citizen, and ttiey opposed. They have opposed everything wo have done from tho beginning of tho war to tho end, and they come before tne country in 1868 without a record. We indorse in our platform the recon struction measures of Congress. Wo say that the national debt shall be paid in full. We say that the nation shall be preserved; and we In our platform indorse everything that the Republics n party has done for the last eight years taking wiuiln its scope that which made foreign nations in the last six months abandon their claims of having subjects forever. Our platform is before you, not a double dealing, but a fair statement of tho case for tho American people. We present npon that platform tho best living soldier. They ask you to go and support that party that assailed the Kepumic all through tho war, that assailed Mr, Lincoln, that abused you and me and ev ery soldier from the beginning of the war up to this latal moment. VY nat I Leave the honored flag of the Republican party turn our backs upon our brilliant record, and enlist In their, ranks? That were without any sort of ingenuity. 1 hey are making a grand display and assailing and attacking everybody poor, miserablo or ganization. What have they got to attack, or what have you got to prove. You are attacking the Republican party, are you ? You are waging a war ol extermination against the Republican party, are you ? uu, how tooiisu you are, my Jjcmocrutic friends, if you expect a man will hide his record. No wonder you wanted to pass by it! No wonder you wanted the country to turn away from your past career! No wonder you wished that leaf of your rec ord to bo let alone. Whyt if I had be longed to your party, which I never have, I would be very glad to have my War rec ord of the party blotted out, and not spoken of among men. Laughter and cheers. Well may tho Democracy close the record, and ask the world not to look at their black deeds. But I tell you we will look at it, and will expose you to the world. You are a pretty party ! Great laughter. You Democracy ! They met In the city of Chicago in the summer of 1804 right in the middle of the war, when everybody else was nearly worn to death with anxiety for the safety of the Repub lic, when every soldier, your friends and brothers, were doing all they could to save the nation they met in the city of Chica go, and declared that, " Whereas, after four years of failure " well, I'll get it just right, I don't ' want to misrepresent them. Laughter and applause. "Whereas, af ter tour years of failure to restore the country by the experiment of war, that we are in luvoroi okacki i ureal laugh- ter. They met in New York the other day to nominate Frank Blair for Presi dent "He missed it, though"! and Frank Blair put forth his platform. He says that "Now, after three j;ars failure in peace to restore the Government to our country, I am in favor of war." I Voice, "They don't read together." -' You see they are never satisfied with what the good peoplo of the country ajro doing for the good of the nation. They are always climbing up some other way. Laughter and cheers. Weil, we conquered the rebellion: we got through with the war, and made the colored soldiers citizens of the United States; we have reconstructed seven the Southern States without injustice or blunder eight, I should say and we shall soon reconstruct the others without trouble. And the Democrats opposed at every step. They tried to keep the col ored men from the right of citizenship. They made riots to hinder reconstruction.' W e issued bonds during the war, and every bond that was issued to carry on the war they opposed, because they wished the war to fail. ICries of " Tliat's so.") When we issued the greenbacks they opposed them. Every Democratic lawyer said was unconstitutional, and they did all they could to depreciate the value of, and to op pose, greenbacks. But we went on under dire necessity, and it was a great, necessity that iiniiclled us to do it even the preser vation of our native land, and the homes oi our wives and little ones but we did right ; we issued the notes and paid the soldiers. The Democracy onnosed us every step, denied the legality of the issue, took the case into the courts, and in short did all they could to hinder us and the war ; but they did not succeed In their ob ject. And now that party are loud ia ex ulainatMins ot iraiae for the graeabaok system. They cannot get euough tliera. When the country waa in the des perate struggle for iu life, needing all the lielu It could get, they tried to run down nj depfaciatti thu Krentiacks, JfoW, I of it it a at when wo are In peace and almost plenty again, they are crar.y fur them.

What shall bo done ? Why, we must eo right straight on as we have done. Wo issued greenbacks to pay for tho war, wo issued the bonds to borrow money to pay tho greenbacks, and we taxed the people to pay the interests of tho bonds. And . , 1 - . , the people boro It bravely. We did tax the people Laughter and cries of " True for ye," "You're right." Wo taxed nearly everything you eat, and drink, and wear, but wo carried on tho war with tho money. We kept tho armies and navies larger than was desirable since then becauso it was necessary to keep the rebels in sub- lection. But sco what else wo have done. j We have paid over two hundred and fifty millions of tho national debt sinco 180.V i We reduced tines one hundred and seventy : millions ol dollars.

Wc have fallen off tho manufac turers' tax. and the cotton tax that bore so heavily on our homo industry, nnd we have removed tho taxes from nearl nearly 11,000 different articles rln tlin tax lit of lHti.V Yet the Democratic party cries out to-day that the people are taxed to death ! How are yon so terribly taxed t Why, 1 11 tell you. They tax every man's Income I Aud how much? hv every man in thlscrcat country who dots not make morn than $1,000 a year, clear profit over his ex penses, they do not tax at all. We havo relieved every man from pay ing any taxes who makes less than a thousand dollars it year profit, Wo make him pay no income tax nt all. If a man receives over one thousand dollars we do tax hiin five per cent, on his income But wo don't tax tho laboring man, nnd no poor person. Let any one ask any labor ing man if ho pays any tax at all. Ho will answer, " Not a dollar." If ono goes and buys a glass of liquor of a cigar, he pays tho tax on highwinea and on tobacco. If ho buys any manufactured article any agricultural implements, ho pays not a dollar of tax to tho National Government. Why is, thon, all this foolish talk, all these nonsensical declarations from ono end of tho coiintry to the other, about a peo ple oppressed with taxes. It is not true, arc taxed enough to pay tllo interest. Wfc pay an income tax of flvo per cent. We pay tho whisky tax and tobacco tax, and tax on foreign importations. The licence tax must be taken out, and that is all that has to bo taken out except one for grain importation. But you must not bo talked to about this. Three, hundred and sixty million' dollars in gold i I ask tho Democratic party if you can to tako that tax off. Threo hundred and sixty millions iu gold! Aro you going to tax the peoplo directly ? You may . directly tax them if you take it from foreign im portations. They are opposed to foreign taxation. But they do not know what they mean themselves. I know that theso burdens havo been Imposed tlpoU us by tho necessities of war, but our peoplo aro not complaining, and we hate to meet tho responsibilities as honest men ; and aro willing and able to pay that debt. The Democratic party say that they know a great many Republicans who are willing to act with them in pnving the national debt in greonbacks. tVe know that the greenbacks are good. Is not a green back just as good as a gold dollar? I say that a greenback Is a promise to pay a gold dollar is just as good When it is at par. I would just as soon have it as a gold dollar I aud I would just as soon pay tho debt in greenbacks if they were at par. That Is the reason that they wish to pay it in greenbacks. They know that they are below par. They know that oUf na tional debt is Hot due, and will not be due for nino years. Five hundred and fifteen millions of dollars from the 15th of August last was subject to payment We could call it back If wo hod money to pay It with. We cannot tako the debt tip unless wo have money to pay it with. But Pen dleton says, " Go to work and issue five hundred and fifteen millions of Green backs." As we have four hundred mil- lions of greenbacks, and three hundred millions of National bank notes In circu- lation. wo have all we want. Whv did you put it ou the market if you wanted to pay it in greenbacks? Wtiy tney say because it la below par. They say It is not worth a dollar. It would only be worth half a dollar or less if it was issued. Tako theso Treasury notes in payment of these hoods, and they will make a clear profit j by selling their honor. I would not do it, ! lor one. 1 will pay that national oeui in good htith so far us my voto will enable me to do it. I don't own a National bond but I respect the National credit and character. I want to preserve it I do not want to bring It down for the purpose of speculating oat of tho National credit; and this party will never agrco to do this dishonorable thing. Cheers. Well, now, my fellow countrymen, we fireseut you Gen. Grant a man with a cool lead, a clear mind, a noble, honest, mod est, moral man for our candidate for the President of tho United States.

Grant, we owe you a debt of gratitude. Yon led our armies to victory ; you fought side by side with our soldiers; you fought nobly for the Ropublic. You went through the war; and your courago, your man hoood, and your gallantry, saved the Republic, and put the rebellion down. And now wo ask you to accept the ofllce of President of tho United States, as a manifestation of the gratitude tnal the peoplo bear to you." We proposeou the ticket with Gen.

But that those whose only feeling is profound regret nnd mortification at ' their failure, who still boliovo in tho right of secession, and thoexcclleneo of slavery, and who frankly acknowledge that they do not despair or tno cause, sliouid ho in trusted with the Government of itio like United States, is absurd. A man General Lonirstreet, who honestly de clares tliat ho thought his view correct, that he submitted to the decision of tho sword, that the sword decided ngalnst him. that ho yields to the decision and will miike the best of It, is a man w horn .iii,ti,Mttr .n, mariirl anil tdi.t Hi. rtitft like Wado Hampton, who announces that although worsted In tho Buhl ho yet hopes to nmko his causo triumnhant. mav be re s pec ted for his frankness, but he is to bo trusted In politic exactly as a torch may bo trusted In a powder magazine. Now Wado Hampton Is a representa tive of the Democratic leaders in this cam paign in tho Southern States. Tho spirit of his speeches is that which animates tho supporters of Seymour and Blair. Ho is, as tno New York World declares, the suc cessor of Calhoun in the affections of Stiuth Carolina tho word South Carolina being used to describe those Inhabitants of the Btnto who hold Calhoun's nullifica tion and secession theories. Upon his way to New York, as a delegate to tho Demo cratic Convention, General Hampton proudly proclaimed his unfaltering faith in tho final success of tho rebellion. In the Convention lltf Was placed upon tho Committee on tho platform, and ho added to It words describing the reconstruction ucta as "revolutionary, unconstitutional, and void ;" and ho says that every single member of the Committeo warmly ap proved arid declared that thtty would carry out those1 Wofds to the end. At a rati fication meeting in Netv York before ho left General Hampton proposod that If there were a majority of white votes which he thought might be obtained, an opinion in which the Kuklux Klan agrees then Seymour and Blair were to be put into the White House at tho point of the bayoflet Upon his way home General Hampton spoko In Baltimore. His speech was nu expression of ardent admiration and sym pathy for Mafylrtiiders who, liko Marshal Kane, took arms upon tho rebel side. These were " the brave and true men of that immortal army. Reaching Charles ton he was received by his friends of the Democratic party with enthusiar.m. The speech ho inado was a glowing rhapsody in honor of State rights, and a boundless eulogy of the men who, with him, had fought against their coumjy. Ppeakingoi tho recreant soldier who, with conscious falsehood, announced that the battle cry of the Union soldiers was "Booty and beauty," Wado Hampton exclaimed : " So long as patriotism, constancy ana vaior are esteemed tho wondrous story of her (Charleston's) defense will stir the hearts of brave men, and noble women will teach their children to lisp th name of Beaure gard," The whole speech is conceived In the Intensest snirlt of devotion to South I Carolina as opposed to the United States. I There is not a thought, an emotion, a word i In It which Is not Inspired by the old South Carolina provincial jealousy of the Union and devotion to Calhoun's doctrine of ! sunremc State sovorelirniy. as ior tne colored citizens, tnis cnivainc genueman says plainly let them vote for Seymour and llhilr or starve. " Agree among your selves, and act firmly on this agreement, that you will not employ any ono who votes the Hadical ticket. Use all tho means that are placed in your hands to control this element." The next morning ! General Hampton repeated the substance of tho speech, saying that ho still had the torn flag which his comrades had loved so ! well and defended so gallantly, and ho would cherish it until they had State ; again. Is this the kind of talk which becomes those who, when the country requires I peace above all things, aspire to direct the ' govornment ? After our experience of tho j last seven years do we want Calhoun i attain and his theories and measures ? Yet this is what the Democratic party proposes. Again, as for years before the war, the Inhuman purposes and impracticable con ceits of aristocratic visionaries control its council! They were always tho bane, they have lately been the tragedy, of our politics. Thoso who would restore Cal houn and trample upon the graves of loyal soldiers who would justify Wade Hampton's rebellion and abandon four millions of loval people to unimaginable suffering will do as Wade Hampton ad vises, and vote for Seymour and Blair. Those who are convinced that Calhoun was the most fetal enemy of tho principle of the Union, and who are resolved that tbo enormous expense of money and of life in the war shall have gained some thing, will now throw their votes, as four years ago they raised their prayers, for Grant, liberty, and peace.
