Tuesday, April 13. 1875. SPEECH OF HON. SAMUEL S. COX, OF NEW YORK In Hartford Conn. April 1 1875. (Continued. J C ONNECTICUT PRODUCT ND PROSPERITY UNDER HOME RULE. Bat in Connecticut, without these n&t ural advantages, what hare you not done. under free auspices and honest adminis tration ? You have over a half million people, packed closely. You hare little rable soil ; but what hare you not done with your "Long rirer" and the 100 miles of coast. You hare an area juicy with streams ; and with your enginery and steam you employ orer 80,000 horse power pulling day and night, under manifold and multiplied conditions. How wonderfully have you harnessed the meagre forces whirli narnra furnishes, bv rour inven tions. The state of Whitney, Goodyear nn1 fVilr. has not merclv sent out her in cenious mechanism to the world ; but ten or fifteen thousand human machines annu ally to other states filling them with thrift and comfort. Not specially adapted for agriculture, you employ ninety thousand hands, besides your million handed ma chinery in manufactures ; yon pay $39, 000,000 in wages, and hare $95,000,000 in capital. Your product in manufactures alone, not counting your jiinety eight thousand cows so precious to the Glaston bury female mind, along with the liberty to milk amounts to $161,000,000 ! Your people lore to traffic. You believe in close savings and quick returns. When Noah Webster was working in federal politics and philology, and had just brought his pretty wife to Hartford it was said that he lived on essays for break fast, dissertations for dinner, and went supperles to bed. Yet what did he not achieve for human language and for the honor of his state. You desire to reach out to all the states and to all the world, with your myriad products. You cannot do it under Radi cal federal policy, I will soon show you that. Your people have facile ways of work. If one way don't pay they find out another Tf ono administration is not good, they are not loth to try another. They are not bound to any number of terms to gratify any number of paid stipendiaries of power. They have many notions ; but no notion of firing powder expensively over measures which ruin, interchange and disturb em ployment. You are ready, as here in Hartford, to iosure anything from a broken leg to an epizootic horse but you are not tools enough, tor any premium, to insure the success of an administration which expects harvests without seed sown, and the protection of good laws for their ingathering. You do not insure propert to Louisiana and Mississippi where Kel logg registers votes, Casey uses Gatling guns, Durrell issues decrees, or DeTrobri aud makes legislatures ; and Grant and the senate endorse that usurpation which sti fles trade. throttles suffrage, and makes and unmakes legislatures with the iron hand ! You have drawn into your state, by its lit erary and aesthetic allurements, men of wealth and leisure while by your frugal and steady habit of good home rule, you .havo attracted 113,000 foreign population to promote &nd share your blessings. Your school fund amounts to $2,000,000 for 123.- 000 children, which you shrewdly acquired and carefully invested from the sale of your title to all the land from the Atlantic to the I'acific coast ! Y'our schools are models ; your colleges boas in their alumni a line of statesmen, ministers, priests and scientists unequaled ; and in all these pre-eminent conditions and results of con tent and comfort, what do you not do and make for others that you are not ready to dispose of for a fair equivalent? Outofyour quarries of marble and stone New York builds her hospitals and penitentia ries.her palaces and her warehouses. The great metropolis at your doors treads un der foot.daily.miles of your flagging. The world keeps tine to the click of your clocks, and regulates its conscience by your India rubber. Did you ever read the census to see the quality of your production ? I don't mean your cotton and woolen fabrics, nor your iron and steel ware ; these form a great part of your industrial result ; but in endless profusion you export, or once ex ported, to other states and lands, straw berries, cream, cheese and school inarms ; ice, stone and onions ; tobacco, carpet bags and carpet-baggers; plated ware, liquor aud fire arms ; hoop skirts, corsets and gospellers, bleaching and dying.and tomb stouts ; screws, lexicons and hippodromes; fair women, smart men, brass ware and brains ! Some of the last go to cougress and some do not. Cheers But for all this vareiety of production, you desire and deserve a market ; and the largest one. You fear no competition, at home or abroad. You ask no protection ; no restriction against the raw material! whether it be an immigrant or a cotton pod. You grew immensely under lower tariffs from 1850 to I860- trebling your production in that decade. Had you grown in the same ratio from '60 to '70 under high tariffs, you would have had five hun dred millions more of true wealth to day than you have ! It is your interest then to foater the sys tem which has given you this prosperity. Where is the magic which evoked it ? where but in the ring of your governor of the Elder Day, more powerful than the ring of Aladdin which made the earth reveal the jewels of whole Satrapies of the Orient, the ring which Charles I. gave to V iuthrop and with which Winthrop evoked the charter, out of which grew your local liberty, security against un just seizures, open and honest courts. frugal government, the right of the people to bear arms in their defense.and the sub jection of the military to the civil power ! These are the genii whioh have bestowed on you the diverse and marvellous pros perity and production which made your state splendid with memories, puissant in arms, elegant in art and exalted in posi tion! RECENT POLITICS. Connecticut has had many and I might say disastrous changes in her political views. When the war closed her people meant to follow no prescriptive policy to ward the south. She meant to give her the home blessings which she herself had. Iu 1865 the Republicans succeeded in state and federal tickets. Your Republi can assembly that year adopted resolutions calling for a "humane and generous poli cy,'' and in aid of President Andrew Johnson for his experimental efforts to -ranquilize the country. Of course the Republican party that year denounced, as usual, state, rights as treason; and by I860, were hardly so cordial in expressing confidence in Andrew Johnson, Indeed, the then president had begun to open his batteries on the bureaucrats aud uncon stitutional re-construction acts. It was a little doubtful what side Johnson was on or what Connecticut Radicals ought to do But that year Gen, Hawley beat Gov. English on devotion to Andrew Johnson, and by some 500 majority. The Democra cy of that year on this platform denounced the state suicide doctrines, and enrolled Andrew Johnson high on the records of renown. Next year ten states were still out ; and the attempts of Radical force sad usurpation, with a view to the presidency in 1868, were apparent. That year, 1867, retired Gorernor Hawley. That year the Democracy enunciated a splendid creed. It was a renewed derotion, in the agony and peril of the time, to constitutional um- nations, reserrett ngnts ana municipal rule. It lifted up the decision of the Uni ted States supreme court as the aegis of per gonal liberty and a break-water against gubrerted gorernment. l our governor, m his message, denounced the continuance $5 oi uiauuiuu uuuoi p - Congresses, and held up the republic oi r ,1:. imAc minimal iuujm federated powers against tne comwig em pire of unwanted powers. wa VJT1 i: -7 nf her traditions and her history. Then her charter oak seemed to grow green again uuuoi uumw A anin in 1868 parties were in array. J Republicans presented Gen, tirant as their candidate. Their derotion to An drew Johnson had in acme way subsided. The Democracy presented a terrible indict ment against the harrassment and dis memberment of the south, the enslave ment of whitemen, the abolition of trial by jury and the writ of habeas corput, and the military forces which strangled public liberty. Did the Democracy win ? They did. In my belief the state has been fairly Democratic ever since. That it is now and will be this vear on the same princi ples. -I doubt not. Not one hundred (runs boomine out of Norwich for Louisiana fraud and force, will make Connecticut un sjteady "in her lore for the traditions and elements of freedom. In 1868, you seem tn bavfi had a nremonition of coming finan cial disaster, growing out of bad taxes and unconstitutional legislation. iou men asserted in your platform, that it would derance business, paralyze industry, ruin merchant and manufacturer, ana aepnve labor of employment. Your platform was e . 1 nronhecv. What since has the radical executive and congress done to avert these disasters and restore prosperity. Have they eiven aa the currency of the constitution f Ur are we still at the mercv of the speculators of Wall street and the profligacy of irrespon ;K1 officials What has been done to pa cify the south, and restore your markets ? What has been done to revive shipbuild ing, shipping and commerce, to increase your production and exportation? Why have not we done as France, nay, as all Europe did. intensified our commercial ac tivities r r ranee came out ot a great war under bonds ; -and yet in her wise fiscal noliev. she sent to Germany more bullion than the Bank of England had. She paid nearlv a billion as indemnity, she betook herself anew to her frugal industries and habits, and to the fresh currents of the world's trade, under liberal and enlighten ed conditions. She knew the necessities of interchange. Is there anv people so ready as yours to accept such privileges and who has withheld them? To be continued) CLIMAX 'CLIMAX !
