Govomor Gordon was invited to spoak to the State Farmers' Allianca of Georgia at its f ession in Atlantalast week. a largo crowd groetod him and enthu siatically applauded his eloquent and earnest speech. We give the following account of his speech, which we know will interest all readers of the Chroni cle. It is copied from the Atlanta Con stitution: 'Mr. President," said ho, "my fellow countrymen of the Farmers' Alliance, brother Democrats: What a salutation! How comprehensive, how suggestive.

I was very much gratified at what the recent Democratic Convention did upon the subject of education. It passed the following: .

No man ev or addressed an audience under more notoworthy circumstances. Here is a greal organization a giant at its birth in almost indisputed control of the machinery of tho venerable and power ful Democratic party; yet wielding that machinery iu conformity to Democratic usage; waging its special warfare within tho Democratic lines; marshalling its forces beneath the Democratic flag, and battling as Democratic veterans with an cestral Democratic faith for cardinal Democratic principles. No wonder the distant observer specu lates as to the future and enemies of Dem ocratic principles indulge delusive hopes. But no wilder political prophecy was ev er uttered, no more reckless partisan assertion was ever made, no more groundless libel was ever penned against truo and loyal Democrats than that pro mulgated by tho Republican Senator from New Hamshire, that the Farmers' Alliance movement would strengthen the Republican party in these Southern States. That the Farmers' Alliance movement. Will Strengthen the Democratic Party, in the Northwestern States is undoubt odly true. It cannot be otherwise; and at the South there is not a genuine Dem ocratic doctrine that you do not embrace; there is not a Democratic tradition that you do not cherish; there is not a Dem ocratic policy that you do not pursue. More significant still, you denounco as hostile to your interests tho Republi can doctrines of a high protective tariff; the Republicun policy of contraction of the currency, and of an iron bound and unjust financial system; and you proclaim your hostility to Federal inter ference with the freedom of elections and the tendency to consolidated govern ment and the destruction of State inde- Fendence as utterly repugnant to the undamental principles on which this republic was established. Democratic Alliancemen of Georgia, ican republic, since it was launched on its career of power and glory, when the highest order of statesmanship was more in demand. The battle before you.remem bor, is tho battle of protected privilege against tho rights of the people. In the halls of Congress and the national legis latum it is to be a wrestle of giants. It will bo witnessed by the whole Ameri can people. You must be prepared for the contest. You ne9d to call to your assistance the greatest intellects from every State and section of the union, men self-poised and prudent, who can not be shaken from their balance in the fury of debate; men whose souls are on hre with a sense of your wrongs; men whose voices will be heard, whose influ ence will bo felt by tho whole American people. Enlist all Sections. Another essential is the enlisting in this cause all sections, all classes, all professions of the American people, who agree with us, to the great principles which we seek to establish. We shall need them all. There is not one of these principles that can ba carried to success without the co-operation of all the friends who agree on the general issue. As for myself I am not sure that I shall be permitted to fight under the flag of financial reform, although for over sixteen years I have been carrying its ban This was eminently wise. Ia a coun try where the people are sovereign, edu cation i3 essential to pure and good gov ernment. It is so palpably and trans parently true in philosphy that igno rance is the mother of nothing valuble, that, like a nugget of gold on a well trodden way, it is strange that any should pass without seeing it.

Mr. Lmerson said truly in substance, that "the inevitables are always work ing to undermine institutions that are not founded on truth." That is, thefasle must ultimately go down under the in evitable working of truth to show itself. The false is short-lived the true is im mortal. Ignorance is darkness. Dark ness is deception and falsehood. False hood is death. Light is life, because it is truth. Education is light. There fore, to vote an ignorant herd, in a world where immorality is a fact, is sim ply working a machine to register the will of corruption. The nineteenth cen tury,upon the sun-dial of theages,marks an unpopular hour to netrograde,or even stand still, in the great work of educa tion. The party ought go down that does not favor free schools for the whole people. And further. Much has been said about the danger of educating the head with out educating the heart. But is there not some confusion of thought here? What is meant by ".heart?"

Editor Chronicle, Dear Sip.: I have read with much pleasure, (as I always do) the short let ter of Hon. W. WT. Holden giving a short sketch of the late Hon. Archibald D. Murphey for many years a resident of this place, and now lies buried near the front of the door of the Presbyterian church. There is only a blue slate rock with no inscription that marks the rest ing place of this distinguished gentle man, and from generation to generation this spot is told as the grave of Archi bald Dilon Murphey. It was never the pleasure of the writer to know personally this di3tmguisn( man, yet I have heard so much about him from tho old gentleman of this place, that he appears to me as an old acquaintance. Gov. Holden refers to a time when Judge Murphey, "had a case in court, which for him was unusual. This we see was at a time when the sands of life were wasting away and he had retired from the prac tice, but the writer has examined the dockets of the Superior and County courts of Orange, from 1812 to 1816, '17, and '18, and we find that m those days the dockets of both courts were exceed ingly large, often numbering three hun dred cases and more. Upon one or the other side of the docket appeared "A. D. M.," and "T.

And it must be remembered also, that, to master moral science does not Gentlemen of the bar, shall we ever see such giants again? The writer, when a member of the General Assembly, heard a speech deliv ered by the Hon. Paul C. Cameron in the hall of the House of Representatives at Raleigh before the Trustees or the Alumni of the University, he does not now remember which. It was an able address, full of learning and beauty. Among many long to be remembered things, Mr. Cameron said that upon his graduation at the University, Mr. Mur phey, who had always been a very dear and cherished friend, wrote him a long letter, filled with the kindest words of affection, esteem and advice, and told him as he was then entering upon the stage of manhood, he would advise him "never to wear a ring, carry a cane or ride a pony." I write from memory only, and if I have misrepresented Mr. Cameron, I know he can correct it, and say much that would be interesting to the public con cerning so great a man asJudge Murphey.

It is therefore requested that every young Democratic voter of Raleigh township, whether a member or not of this club, will attend a meeting to be held at the mayor's office, Thursday, August 28th, at 8 o'clock, p. m., for the purpose of reorganization of, and put ting the Young Mens' Democratic club of Raleigh, upon a firm working basis. It is also the earnest desire of this committee, that the young Democrats in each township in Wake couuty. reorgan ize their old clubs, and organize new ones.and atoueeput themselves in com munication with this club, that we may all unite in a determined and united ef fort to redeem Wake county, and by such combined determination carry the banner of Democracy to success.

"So?" said a pleasant voice near them. Ward looked up, aghast. It was August Bel mont. He had come in unperceived and had heard every word.

The Progressive Farmer quotes ap provingly from an exchange that 'people who oppose the bub-.treasury plan, to be consistent, must oppose the national bank law and the whiskey trust,' and our contemporary is right.

How proud we should be over our pilgrim rock pebbles. Don Gilliam is now at Nag's Head for the purpose of entering this new made land. Sweet are the Uses of Adversity. (Rockingham Rocket.) In a little village not many miles from Rockingham, the young people congre gate occasionally at night and have "singings" the old fashioned sort, you know, where, in the absence or an in strument, the "leader" stands in front of the class with tuning-fork and baton and is "master of ceremonies." They make fine music, too, by the way; and when it comes to tne cnorus oi some good old soul-stirring hymn and the leader swings his baton aloft, the class follows the motion with both body and voice with a sort of hands-all-round that carries force with it. Well, recently such a singing was in progress in the village aforesaid. Some forty or fifty "lads and lassies" were congregated in a dwelling that had been vacant for some time. They were sinering a song the chorus of which be gins, "We are Marching to the Grave. Just as they got to the chorus in this in stance, the baton described its curve, tho all-together swing of the class followed, and "We are Marching to the literally brought down the house. .The sleepers gave way, the floor went down, and. from the indiscriminate scramble to get out of there, not a person in that bouse wanted to go to the "grave" either "marching" or otherwise.

We had a long and earnest talk, last week, with an intelligent, shrewd Demo cratic delegate to the State Alliance con cerning the under-current and drift of sentiment that he discovered among Alliancemen at Asheville.

The out look is favorable and radicalism is not predominant. Above all we gathered that the Alliance showed that it had a head of its own and clearly indicated that there 13 no man who can claim to be the leader of it. The news about Vance is all right.
