THE BULLET AND THE BALLOT.
LOYAL MEN BEFORE TBATORS.
The foilowfng ls'a full report of tho elo
quent, but brief speech, of Hon. John "A.
Bingham, at Cambridge,Guernsey county,
O on the occasion of his renominatlon for
Congress: ' ' ;
Fellow Citizens: . .
I gratefully accept the nomination ten
dered me to-dayby the representatives of
the loyal people oi the Sixteenth Congres
sional District. Believe me my fellow-citizens,
when I say to you that, having spent
the flower of my manhood in the councils
of the nation, in a struggle at the capitol
with the men who conpired against the
tttpremacy of your Constitution and the
unity of the republic, that in this our last
and final trial for the nation's life, I would
have shrunk from this nomination. exeeDt
upon the voluntary call of my fellow-cit-
ieens. Cheers. Every man in the Six-
teenth'District will become witness that,
personally 1 have not sought the honor of
thji position. -1 Wag -willing to Serve in
whatever place it pleased God to appoint.
although it might be the humblest in'the
ranks .of the people, to save tbe nation's
life. Cheers.. i
; COUNTRT BEFORE PAHi
I do hot accept this nomination as the
representative of any mere political organ
ization. I accept it only as the representa
tive of a -portion of ; that mighty body of !
freemen who eover this continent; who
look out upon Europe from their eastern
and upon Asia from their western habita
tions; meTTwho llnringiihcse four years of
night And of storm! "nave- kept ward;' and
watch over the infant, republic, the last
hope . of oppressed humanity upon the
earth ,; men who, in the hour of trial, for
got that they were Democrats forget, that
they .were Democrats, forgot that they were
Democrats,; forgQt that they were- Repub-
licans,r,,and ..rehiehered., only that they
were AriWricans, a part of that mighty sis
terhood of free commonwealths that dot
the continent across from the rock-bound
coast of New England to the golden gates
of the Pacific, and" who have sworn ah oath
in the presence of God and their country,
when the red right hand of treason smote
at the white breast of their parent coun
try, that they would save it,live or perish.
'THE BULLET AND THE BALLOT.
The last hour of this great conflict has
come. lour three hundred tnousahci
young men, the beauty and promise of the
land, have perished upon its high places,
that the country might live. The battle
by the bayonet has been fought and .won.
The last, the greatest, because the final
conflict, is to be fought, not by the bay
onet, but by the ballot,
'That Weapon firmer set,
- And surer than the bayonet." -
Great cheers. " In the hands of a free peo
ple, it will speak in the coming contest for
the final triumph, or the final overthrow
of the republic. Viewed in this light, my
fellow citizens, ite is such a contest as no
man now within1 the hearing of my voice,
ever witnessed before because it is a con
test which decides of itself the future of a
great people. s- - ;
. ., ....... f ONLY TWO PARTIES.
There are but two parties to-day, as there
were, .upon that morning treason fired . its
first gun on ' iWt'Surnpter; there are but
two parties in this land,. the friends of the
Republic, the friends of the Constitution,
the jfriendsoi' the liberty of the human race
secured by law, in this land, givehof.Gorl
as the last refuge of liberty upon: the earth;
and theiehcis'of'that despotism, and con
spiraey,ahd treason, and unmatched crime,
which sought to rip the. Republic to atoms,
and to cast lots upon its seamless' gar
ments. ' There are but patriots and trai
tors. : They may icalt themselves .; Demo
crats until they grow hoarse shouting the
word. Do the. men 'who thus rely on the
prestige of a hime, insist', that loyal men
only shall be put upon guard to protect
the dearest interests of this nation? Do
they hot rather say that its places of trust
shall be given to those who but yesterday
mustered their hostile hosts from the banks
of the Potomae to the banks of - the Rio
Grande? The men who occupy an equiv
ocal position oh questions of this kind, ho
matter whether they call themselves Dem
ocrats or something else, are no better than
THE NAKED ISSUE;
This is all there is of the issue before the
American people. It is simply this, and
nothing less; whether the loyal men who
saved this Republic, in the council and in
the field, by the . treasure of their purse,
and the treasure of their heart, who have
given their sonsj the apple of their eye, as
i JL y jl. J A-M Aa
a sacrifice for the life of the nation, shall
be intrusted with the care of the Republic;
Or whether those men who followed the
fortunes of Lee and Beauregard and Jo
seph E. Johnston are to be allowed hereaf
ter to enter your National Capitol as legis
lators and rulers of this great people. This
is the whole question, as is clearly seen by
a giance at the two platforms announced
at Columbus, by the two parties within the
THE UNION PROPOSITION.
The party.Calling itself by that name,
which has now become honored as the par
ty of the Union, declare that they accept
the constitutional amendment presented
to the American people as a fair and just
basis of the restoration of the Union.
The other party, defaming and disgrac
ing the name of Democrat, assemble also
in convention, and resolve that they are in
favor of the immediate and unconditionei
restoration of the States iateiy in rebellion ;
and in favor of their immediate as well as
unconditional representation in Congress.
Voices never, never 1 The word ''im
mediate" is theirs, and you cannot mistake
the meaning of it. They are opposed, of
course, to the constitutional amendments ;
they are opposed Of course, to any new
guarantees being required for the safety
or life of the Republic; they are opposed,
of course, to any new securities for tins pro
tection of person or property in the South
ern States of the Union after restoration.
Ask, any one of their, leaders what he
means by "immediate. aud unconditional
restoration." and it you only assure 1dm
that your confidence may be relied upon,
by following his steps to the privacy of
his own home, he will tell you that ha
means, without any constitutional guar
anties, without aiiy test oath, without aiiy
interference of any kind on the part of
Congress; that when Jeff. Davis, Robt.
Lee, Joseph Johnston an all the rest of
them, come to the Capitol and assume to
sit down in the haUs of Congress, or exer
cise the duties of the highest offices in tho
gift of the people they shall by allowed to
do so without question.
PUTT TO AMEND.
They are opposed to the test oath as un
constitutional: and they are opposed to
the constitutional amendment because it
is unconstitutional. I have learned from
experience, and from , the higher sources
of knowledge, that the first great principle
Of American institutions as it is present
ed in Washington's ' Farewell Address, is
the right of-'the people to-change their
Constitutions of Government whenever
change becomes ncecsiary for', the safety
of the liberties of the people.. This is a
duty second to none that devolves upon
them on this earth. This struggle for four
yciirs testified to all the world thatamend
li.'rrts are needed in the Constitution of the
United Ssates. u ' .. .
. ' EQUAL CiVIL' EIGHTS . .
That which stands foremost in the enu
meration is, that hereafter "no State shall
make or enforce any law which shall
abridge the privileges or immunities of
citizens of; the United States ; nor shall
any. State deprive any persph of life,
liberty .or property, .without due process
of law, nor deny to any person within its
jurisdiction the eu'al protection l6f the
laws." ' ' " ' " 1 ' -.
Sihefe nations first -began to be ori'this
planet, never was a proposition like that
penned for the people Of a nation to adopt
or reject. No State shall deny to any per
son no matter whence he comes, no mat
ter how friendless, no matter how illiter-ate--no
State in this land shall hereafter
deny to any person the equal protection
of the laws ; and tho Congress shall have
power, by the authority of the American
people to enforce this provision Where ne
cessary. Who is there to object to it ? lis
it Objected to by any Christian hian, to
embody in your Constitution at least the
simple golden rule j-ou learned at your
mothers knee: ''Whatsoever ye would
that others should do unto you, do ye even
so unto them;" It is a great step, but one
that Ought long since to have been taken,
to say that henceforth no State shall deny
to any person, the lowliest among us no
more than to us who are the sovereigns of
this land, the equal protection, of the laws.
That principle embodied in your Constitu
tion, as the will of this people, ahel we may
well say that justice has made this land its
habitation. Cheers. The first attribute
of Deity is to be recognized in the Consti
tution of your country. I think this is one
way to make a nation immortal, to do-justice,
to make the rights" of all men as sa
cred as our own; v ''
In' the next place, the States of this Gov
ernment shall have equal representation,
according to their, representative popula
tion. Vou know that when this war be
gan there were four millions of slaves in
the lahd ; that by the terms of the Consti
tution only three-fifths of that population
Were counted in the basis of representa
tion. You know, too, that by the consum
ing fire of that terrible conflict every fetter
fell from every human limb, from ocean to
ocean ; and when the storm cloud arose,
the sun upon his coarse in the heavens
looked not down upon a single fiave.
By means of the' emancipation of sla
very, the three-fifths rule of your Consti
tution was annulled; and the question to
day is. whether South Carolina, with 400,
000 of these black men, just emancipated
from thraldom, but 'excluded from all po
litical rights, shall now be counted, every
one, man for man, in the basis of repre
sentation, along with the free men of Ohio,
who do participate in the administration
of public affairs. In other words, by
reason of this cliaiige.are the 400,000 blacks
of South Carolina tocovmty.notwithstahd
iiig the letter of the Constitution, as
strongly as so many of the free population
of the North? That is the question.
We say to them, if you don't enumerate
them among j'our people, and make them
the basis of representation ; if j-ou don't
. $2.0O per Annum.
give them suffrage, regardless of their
ignorance. Irrespective of color or race,
you shall not represent them .in the Con
gress of the nation. In other words! we
say, that the black patriots of South Caro
lina, who stood In the breach of Fort
Wagner and fought in defense of the Re
public against the traifors of that State.
.are as much entitled to representation in
Congress fig their former masters. Great
cheers. These gentlemen, when they re
solve against that fair and equai represen
tation, resolve against that fair and equal
representation. Here Is the difference be
tween me and my opponent in the coming
election In October: I say it is not but
fair if South Carolina excludes her black
population entirely as voters, she shall not
count them on the floor of Congress, any
more than she shall count her horned cat
tle; while he says she may do this very
thing. But if South Carolina chooses to
count In her blacT. population, In the same
category with her white population, and
thus increase the basis of her representa
tion, there can be no reasonable objection,
and she will add additional strength to the
Government of these States. We leave
thl question of suffrage, you see, with the
several Atates, where it has always been;
but we adopt a just principle of represen
tation. VIOLATION OF OFFICIAL OATHS.
What is the hefc proposition that op
poses the unconditional restoration of the
rebel States? It is that no man who breaks
his official oath with the nation or State,
and rendered service' in . this rebellion,
shall, except by the grace of tho'" Ameri
can people, ba again permitted to hold a
position, eithar in "h4 National or State
(.'ovemm ant. '. Democrats are opposed, to
that. Why? Because the chief of their
party, who waged this war upon tha Uni
on and the nation's iu now a prisoner of
war at Fortress Monroe, broks his outh
of office sis United States Senator, to or
ganize treason and rebellion. Th-ey think
their party can never be restored, unless it
shall be constitutional hereafter to elect
Jeft". Davis Senator, and Bob.' Lee Repre
sentative in Congress.
We saj by this amendment, never while
that Constitution stands, shall any of these
men, who ( clothed themselves with per
jnry as with a garment, breaking ihe oaths
they took before God to protect and de
fend th& Constitu.tIon.of the United Stated,
by going Out and waging tVaf for four
yeard, never shall they hold any office of
honor, or 'profit either in the Republic, ror
in any of the States of the' republic.
(Great cheers. 'Your Democratic 'plat
form rejects tuia proposition! and declares
for immediate and unconditional restora
tion. " - '
TtfE NATION'S DEBT. - -;:
There Is still one other provision and
that in that. the pledged faith of the nation
tO its dead and to Its livffcg' dcfenders,'the
pledged faith of this people to the little
child ren who are waich ing by the yacant
chair for the long expected return of their
father from the war,' shall never be brok
en. Your Democrats oppose this, thereifi
disgracing our common humanity. -That
pledge will be broken unle&s the loyal peo
ple of the nation engraft It in their Con
stitution.; Yoti: have evidence' 'of ' It" all
around you. But let the people speak and
eay that; thiA covenant shall be kept' until
every obligation is Mfilled-; that the na
tlon will not desert its defenders who sleep
their last sleep upon A hundred fields of
battle, now represented in their widows
and children; that the country 'Will hot
desert its maihied : heroes, who made the
trenches of Vicksburg, and the bloody
ground of Stone River, and the show
crowned hbghts of KenesawV and : the
rocky hills of Gettysburg, holy -'ground ;
that the country will -never desert these
maimed heroe3, and consent . that , the
covenant made with them shall be broken..
Great applause. .. ., .: .
" EXAMPLE OF TENNESSEE. ' ' :
There are' objections' raised by these
Northern Democrats and they tell you
that they must have immediate restora
tion of the eleven rebel States!' Thank
God! since'they Wrote the miserable sec
ond resolution of their State" platforiny
which I have just been citing, something
has been done. The loyal masses of Ten
nessee, in the free heart of Tennessee,
whose mountains and plaint were red with
the blood of her children fallen " in the'
great struggle in defense f the Republic,
have set to the North the grand e'xainple
of ratifying in good faith, by a majority
of her representatives in the Senate, and a
majority of the whole, number of her rep
resentatives in the House, that sacred am
endment of your Constitution. Great ap
plause. And they have changed their
Constitution and laws fed as to be in con
formity with it: And what is better, If
possible, on the motion of j our own. Rep
resentative, both in the Senate and in the
House, have been . admitted to 'their seats.
Renewed applause. ,
. Is it asking too milch oif the residue; the
ten remaining rebellious States, that they
shall ' imitate the example of Tennessee ?
Voice, "No.7 Is it asking too much to
allow that the American people! them
selves shall decide this issue at the polls,?
For as you vote next October in Ohio, and
in ' Noveihber in the Other StateSj this
question will be determined. If the peo
ple of these Northern States, rally at the
polls and declare in favor of the adoption
of this amendment, rely upon it, every
State in the South will imitate right speed
ily the State of Tennessee, and you wili
have the amendment ratified by the votes
ofaiithe States, and a restored republic
by the time Congress again assembles. Is
this not worth contending for, to restore
this Republic, and perfect your Constitu
tion, so that the whole people hereafter
will have in their care and keeping the
smallest and humblest State of the great
Republic? so that hereafter Georgia may
not make it a penal olleiise for any one to
teach her ignorant children to read the
Word of God, and that there is a higher
and purer life beyond the grave ?

HOW IT WILL. WORK. . , ,.j r
How will it.be When this- amendment 1st
placed In the Constitution: "oState
shall makepr enforce any law whlchshalf
abridge the privilege of any citizen of the
United States." Freedom of conscience is .
one of the privileges of citizens Of thd
United States, and men are hot to; be put
to torture, gent to the dungeon, walk the
narrow steps of the seaffold, for teaching
their children the holy principles of our"
Lord and "Master. .
THE CITIZEN SUPERIOR TO THE STATB.
We don't ally the church and the State
but we make the State recoghizo the great
principle that the Government at least is
made for man, and not man for the Gov
ernment. I believe the sentiment of that
grand, thoughtful spirit who shook every
throne In Eh rope", when ; ho proclaimed
from the French Academy, that "surely
the citizen is superior to the State; for
States are born, and live and die upon tho
earth, nere they fulfill . their destiny.
But after the citizen has discharged every
duty to the State, there abides yet every
faculty of his nature by which he ascends
to God and the unseen realities Of a; no-
blcr and better life."
THE STATE AND THE NATION.
I ask yon to perfect by the ballot uhafc
has been begnn by the bayonet.' Secure a
permanent- peace by establishing freedom
and justice throughout the whole land.
Leave the States intact, lri the possession
of every right that hitherto pertained to'
them ; but let them know that for tine
abuse ot this power intrusted to thetri there
is. a tribunal above and superior to theni,
represented by the. whole people of this'
land, who will redress the wrong, and
make the whole World know that the Ami
oilcan Repujdlc presents for the admira-:
tlon of mankind the sublime spectacle of
a Government so wise, so humane, and yet
so strong and just, that there are none so
high who violate its laws as to be above Ir
or beyond its powers, and none so humble"
Who. obey Its laws as to be beneath Its pro-;
tec ting care. Let ths be done and aU Isf
well. Let lfc be left undone and It is evi
dent that the most precious and Illustrious
sacrifices ever made on this earth by any
people for any government, has at last"
been made in vain. 'Applause. :
