Speeches were made by several members of the
trades assembly, who urged tbe circulation of a j
petition throughout the state, protesting against |
its continuance as a fraud on honest labor, nod ,
requesting the Deit legislature to prohibit its j
continuance. It'the prop’r steps are taken200,

Removal or tux Re4aixs or Sixtus* A i
Douglas.—The Evening Journal of laxt Tucs- j
day, *aya: •
The executive committee of the Donglaa
ira'f t Association has decided to remove tut
remains of the late Senator Douglas from the
ground where they have reposed since 1861, to
the mausoleum, or tomb, on the third day of
June next, the anniversary of his death.
The metallic casket containing his body will
be placed in a white marble saicophagua, which
will stand in the center of the chamber of the
mausoleum, visible to the spectator through the
grated doorway. The transfer of the remains
will be made by the trustees of the Monument
Association. The public an. invited to attend
on the occasion, and will be duly informed
through the papers, at an early day, of tfau ar
rangements proposed by the committee.
In ibis connection we may state that, with
the completion of the tomb, which forms the
base of the proposed monument, the foods of
the Monment Assoc’- .ion are exhausted. The
sum of $RO,nO0 additional will be required to
complete the monumeut according to the origi
nal plan, including the column of white nsuthlc,
some forty two feet iu height But this may b»
dispensed witl, and still an elegant and appro
priste monumeut secured, by completing the pe
destal after Mr. Volk's design, placing the four
symbolic marble figures in the positions Intend
ed lor them, and the statue of Douglas himself
w rle":U'd ^ the center.
\\ e trust the assomat,on may,... B0 diatant day,
be enabled to raise an am-’Unitaafivient ffe"

be worthy his own fame and the state be renro

But I return. The purpose, Mr. Walker
tells us, not to pay off these war debts
(though he is citing the case ot the debt in
England, it will bear a general application)
is because the “national stocks,” in which
shape they exist; afford “the most cli "Me
investments” for their money, (the reason ,
why he does not state; and there may be
other reasons for not paying off the national
debt that he does not mention. And he tells
us that the small payments that are ever
made (citing the case of England) have been .
from necessity rather than choice; a mea
sure of poli-y adopted to secure the credit of
t‘*e government,” (which is my undercross- *
ing). “Nor does it,” he says, “'>nnoar that
s eh debts are likely ever to be paid uruex*
the tear policy of the world is changed,”
(which is my under scoring). And he t< ils
us “ nc large national debt has ev^r bean
paid or discharged, except by repudiate it.”
This last word I underscore. The debt of
the American revolution, ho had told u«,
“vanished in worthless continental money.” 1
Here, as 1 understand it, was more of tho
swindling operation of the governing clashes
Z'-'o'h as I tormerly spoke of, by which fitly
cents on the dollar were recently taxen from
the workingmen’s pockets by neans of a de
preciated currency. And thus, it may be
sail in regard to the revolution here referred
to, that the liberty ol the thirteen American
colonies, f . mt .-ly belonging to Grvat Britain,
were in a degree, obtained under fa!.,e pre
teoces, when the people were taxed to the
full amount of the debt to pay for the liberty
of these colonies without their consent ; and j
by this act of depreciating the continental
money, as it was called, the chief suffering j
caused by which felt upon the masses, per
haps, was the first lie given to the Declara
tion of Independence, which says all men
are horn free and equal, and with the ina- !
lienable right of life, liberty and the pursuit ‘
of napp.neaa—a lie, when by defrauding the
masses of that day to pay the national d< bi,
besides sacrificing their lives, their right*
were, every one of them, violated.
There are, however, some remarks of Mr.!
Walker on taxation, to which I would tuke ]
alight exception. He says the poor may sup- ;
pose “their poverty and suffering” to be “the
consequence of their low wages,” when “the 1
true cause” of it (which ho says is taxation)
“they do not perceive.” He says, “they .
may feel that Ihey are oppressed, bat will
naturally attribute it to the want of justice!
or generosity on the part of their employ- i
era.” In reply, I would say I do not know j
how low wages can neoeaaarily have any-j
thing to do with it. Justice, it would seem,
requires that at a time of high taxation,
when the prioes of commodities are advanc
ed, the wages of labor should be advanced
proportionately with the prices of these com- j
nioditiie, and if this is not done, one “true i
oause” of the “poverty and suffering” of j
the poor, which is a sufficient one, is per- *
ceived—that is in the low rate of wages,
and tbs poor may well attribute their op
pression at such a time, it seems to me, to
“the want of justice or generos-ty on the
part of their employers” if lheir wages are
not raised upon the scale of other things. I
However, as I take it, whether it is by tax
ation, or the want of justice or generosity on
the part of employers, that wages are op
pressively low, the cause is the same, k
is the oppression of labor by capital. And
it is against this oppression, as I understand
it, that the labor movement is intended to j
operate by moans of the ballot.
The following quotation from Mr. Walker
which is mainly the expression of noble;
sentiments, I make to erttioi*o its closing
remark. “ The economy of a national
debt,” says be, “under the modem financial
system must always impoverish the produo- j
t ve clssses. Its entire infijenoe on them is
oppressive. It deprives them of their honest
reward by a false ourrency, which robs them
of i large share of their nominal wages ; it
imposes upon them through indirect tax*- <
tion.” (the taxes, he tells us elsewhere, be-!
ing laid on tn such a manner “that they are
almost unconscious at the moment that they !
are taxed at all"), "an undue proportion of
the public hardens, and is, in fact, a stnpen
dous enginery for depressing them, though
perhaps not so intended.”
why, I would ask, say the last four or five
word*— “though perhaps not so intended” ?
Governments, it seems to me most know
what they are about when tfaaj make laws,
Mid a* mast make them intentionally. Bat I
that they asay cover tbsir intentions some
times may not be unlikely.
Finally, “We have.” say. Mr. Walker,
• an immense debt, and a larger amount of
annual interest than any other people on dm
j face of the earth.” ([ have v ’*r taken a oak
I eulation of the amount r. qoirod to pay tho
IntrreM on -be public debt, and if lam right
mmy flgsres it is not far out of tho way c#

moot* iu«y m*- svflhr, they mnnit hope for
relief. They most know the eeese of their
suie-ioge, or fbey eennot apply the reme
dy.”
In mil those remarks ef Me. Welker,
wo question whether he is et ell
bolding audience with the working elans
e<, and whether he is not sowad
ing a note at warning to married-see
in pbmes caicuatcd to suit all ears. How
ever. “let credit be to him to whom credit is
due," as the uyieg is.
1 bis is ue far as I propose to consider the
subject of debt. In Hamming up, I would
say, we have found that it belongs to the
capitalist of the present day to pay (he ne
ti oel debt of lhi< country, and that y fu
ture generation is under no binding oblige
; (ion to pay it. Further 1 would express tab
opinion that it would be unjuet to tax him
' to pay the debt who was opposed to the
war.
I L ivo now gone through with oppression,
and its effects, euJ it is proposed in the re
| uiuiniug letters to oonsidor the remedy.

It has been pretty generally known tor

championship and a stake of $10,000, be
’ tween McCuole and Coburn, on the 27th in
stant, will not come off within fifty miles of
| Cincinnati, as at first proposed. The agent
who has the selection of the battle field and
■ other arrangements for the meeting in charge,
would prefer a certain point in this Stute,
| hut he is compelled to select a point on the
other c le of the river, on account of the
Kentucky Central R ilroad being un ible to
furnish the nect-ssaiy accommodation for the
thousands who will attend. The fight will
therefore take place c- the line of either the
