to see BO large an audience assembled upon this warm afternoon iu the midst of harvest and upon so short a notice to hear the subject of na tional politics and our duty dis cussed as I am to discuss it 1 shall not occupy your time very much or indeed at ill in defending myself against the charges that are beina burled at me from all Ihe Grant quarters at the present time for my consistency does not at all effect the question whether Greeley or Grant ought to be President I will not there fore occupy your time for it would be a waste of time and a waste of effort lor me to make any attempted defence at Ihe present time It js not the first time that I Jinvc been denounced because I exercised the great the high prerogative of every American citizen to think and act for hinisoU Cheers Some 25 or 20 years ago I was denounced becauaeI leit the old proslavery party to unite with the little handful the unpopular hand ful of antislavery men in defence of the right But srauge to say the denunciations of evertbe old proslavery party of 25 years ago was not as bitter or as personal as are the denunciations and as is the intolerance of the Grant party to day This comes from a personal government As in a monarchy any refusal to snppovt the king is treason to the king and state PO now refusal to sopport the preteniions of Gen Grant and his adherents becomes reason to the Republican party and to the state Now with these preliminary remarks I desire to ask this audi ence what political parties sire formed here What is the object of bodies of men associating them selves together in a political Is it simply to foster and elevate uce man or any set of men to power merely for the sake of put ting them in power You say No The object or political associations of political parties is to advance certain princi ples is it Got Cheers1 It is to correct certain evils of government is it not It is to advance right principles of government is it not and the mere pretensions of men as men have nothing to do with it and no sound honest set of meu can be kept together for any length of time for any such purpose under the sun Any associa tion of men fpr the purpose of advancing the interest of one man or set of men merely will necessa rily become rotten and corrupt aud fail to pieces as he Grant party is falling to pieces today Cheers Mr Chairman 20 years ago hav ing been reared Democrat and given my first vote to James IS Polk in 1844 seeing the tendency of the old Democratic as well as of the old Whig party to rottenness and decay so that they were being controlled by the slave power and that alone as I thought I aban doned these party affiliations and from that time until now I ask of any man ol this audience to Dlace his finger upon a single inconsist ent poliieai act of mine f Cheers I will give way to interruptions if any gentleman desires lo do it Tell me when or where I havo fal tered in the course marked out for myself then Have I not always maintained these fundamental rights of man equali ty before the law freedom of thought and speech freedom of TO ZrPOXjITias Vol ATJGMCTST 31 1873 35 vole for that bill willi some 10 or 11 other members of the House I voied no upon its passage I will tell you why The office of Gen eral had never been conferred but upon one uiau before in this coun try Afler Washington had carried the nation llirotigli u seven years war and after he had been twice elected President of the United States and shown himself first in peace as well as first in war Congress a littie time before he died by a special act conferred upon him the title ol General and that il should die wilh him And when he died that title slept in his grave until we opened it and tore this chnplct from his brow and transferred it to Hie brow ot the little gentleman irom Galena Laughter and cheers I did not vote lor that bill a good miny gentlemen did vote lor it who did uot want to and who said it ought not to pass lies of this What were the poli entleinan Was be a action free soil free free men Cheers labor and 1 clung to Republican No and you gentle men who are so afraid of being contaminated by association with Democrats had better remember that Grant when he entered the army was a Democrat and when we conferred upon him those titles was a Democrat The first time I ever heard his name mentioned as a prospective candi date for the presidency in the house of representatives at Washingtonit was by the hardestheaded demo crat 1 ever knew Lewis Iloss of this state who in the house one day got up aud said that the dem ocrats were going lo nominate U S Grant for Die presidency and H scared a number of Dont you remember that it was a doubtiul and debatable question before Grant was nominaied four years ago whether he should be the candidate of the democratic or republican party lie says he nev er but once cast a vote for a presi dent and that was for James Bu chanan in 1S5G and yet you de nounce me and say 1 have gone over to the democracy and to the rebels because I have announced myself in lavor Horace Grceloy for president But Grant they say is paying tbe debt This is very much although it lias not so much evi dence vo support other pre tension that he saved the country lie was a leader among the soldiers who saved the country he is at the head of the administration while the people are paying the debt Grant has just about as much to do with paying the debt as my friend Barry there or myself lie probably pays a little larger lax than we do seeing he was not worth so much a lew years ago as Barry or I I suppose he pays his tax like any other man Mr was pretty low iu the world then general wasnt he Gen it ho was not he could not compare with us I suppose I say that he pays his taxes like any other man but aside from that he has 110 more to do with paying the debt of the United States than any other man in the United States Congress passes laws providing for taxing the tbe people tlie people these taxes into the is not stolen by the way And after it gets into Die treasury it is paid out in the manner in which 1 thai tell you toward redeeming the public debt And now yon stiy we must continue tho administration in power because it dontt steal the money You say ihcy pay the money that the people contribute on thoir taxes on the public debt aud dont steal it therefore oil righteous men continue them in office But did you ever hear of a merchant continuing a clerk in his store simply because that cjcrk would not steal Did you ever hear of a cashier being continued office in a bank merely because he did not steal i If that is the on ly qualification requisite it is to me a new rule among merchants and business men But how is the public debt being paid I desire to say a few words upon that sub ject and tocallyournttentlon to it I will explain how some of the great expenditures arise Tho army hns a great stall for which they have but lit tle uso All thedu stall oiliecrs require to have horses larnge commutation of lions everything of that kind Many of three or the private officers of Ihe President and what they have to dp willi horsesi nnd forage it is difficult to sity but druiv their commutation money nevertheless For instance you liuvo a Juftrter rnasters establishment jn Now York there nro ahout 500 troops today in that department and yot they have a lowed for rent of building and headquarters d other ofliees uu uuiuuut reaching a yenr Just for headquarters of the mil itary officers in command ot that department whore he has less than 500 troops Chciip very cheap I speak merely says Mr Logan of tlie otlice rent why it is I do not know but it a luct that iu somo inililary do partH the rent of headquarters alone is I believe it costs a deal more iu San Francisco That is tbe way the public money is npent for rental ol offices and for quarters at extravagant rices for n who is a ieuuinanllieueral or Colonel That is the way the money goes in the War Department according to Lognu who ia now an ardent supporter of Grant Again upon the subject of Iheso expenses I will read from the re marks of another gentleman whose lot dispute for j speeches for Grant I read from a speech made by the then Chairman of the Com mittee on Appropriations in the House and the present Chairman on the Committee of Ways and Means Henry L Dawes of Mas sachusetts a year ago lust winter Now sir what did Andrew Johnson in the last year of his Administration estimate that he would carry on this Gov ernment for anil wo cut down the appropriations 000 bo low his estimate of carrying on tho Gov ernment and this tho people at tho polls declared to be protligate and unreasona bly so Now sir what iloas our own administration ask that it may carry on the administration for tho present year under Grant Tho same etlimalu now is an increase over tbe last estimate of Andrew Johnsons gov ernment for IS60r70 of mid wo cut down that estimate so that the exact difference between llio estimates for llio present year aud the appropriations for thelast year of An drew Johnsons Adminislralioji is 49 632000 What do you think of that For tynine millions more is estimated hands for three months without interest The fact turns out that it not only remained in their hands something like twothirds of anoth er month making nearly onethird of a yenr They receive subscriptions foi led to investigate that or the other charge but in nine cases out often these committees oeing standing committees will make whitewash ing reports They will dodge the issue if they can and why I will tell you why when I come to speak this loan they notify Bontwell that on the subject of civilservice re they have got subscriptions1 to the amount of and send him a certificate of deposit for that amount and he then issues the new bonds bearing five per cent interest from that date lie then gives notice to the holder of an equal amount of six percent bonds that in throe mouths from that time that interest will cease and they will bo paid he then leaves authority you will he is now mnkiu form In the matter of Public Buildings there is a steal of millions upon millions every yenr iu granite and sandstone contracts where officers of the government aro mixed np and when I developed the fact that members of congress and subordi nate officers of the treasury depart ment and when the fact is devel oped in one end of the capilol that tho money which has been sub some of the secretaries of tlio Pros scribed for the new bonds in the hands of tho syndicate to draw in terest upon Now what docs that cost the Treasury what does it cost the taxpayers of the United States Let us see Onehalf of one per cent provided by the law amounts yon say to SI000000 Now there Washington and is admitted on all is the interest on these bonds for hands that the President of the ident are mixed up in these stone contracts what is said 1 Are these men displaced Xo Why AVith what kind of grace can the head of your government displace a subor dinate for being engiigcd in these contracts when he is in it himself Cheers It is well known the third of a year 3200000 What does it amount to Onethird of a years interest on the new bonds bearing interest at five per cent is equal to one and twothirds per rent making more making altogether with the other United States himself has been for the last two or three years a large stockholder in what is known as lite Soncca Sandstone Company and if yuu will go about the white house or tho treasury or the capi tol or the public grounds most half per cent all told I anywhere there you will find this four millions and onethird for re red sandstone lying around You funding 5200000000 or equal to 2 10 per cent of the whole amount Now how much does the Gov ernment make in that transaction The Government is paying G per cent II refunds at 5 and for that pays 2 1G per cent Most any boy at school can figure that up IJovv much does the Government make Well it is true that after two years and a little more have elapsed the government will got even Then the bonds begin to bear u lower rate of interest That is tho way refunding is going on under this administrationand under this syn dicate Now my fellowcitizens I have a letter here from one of the mem bers or this syndicate It is dated COOKK A Co BANKHHS FIKTKKXTII STREET WASIHNOTOV B C July 9 1872 Honorable and Dear Sir I am directed by tho Republican Cou grcislonul Committee to solicit from you a subscription of that being tho amount which by general under standing Senators and members agree they pay to said committee toward do o out to the national cemeteries and yon will find that they have been walled in with miics of stone walls midc from the Seneca sand stone and if I go up to the secreta ry of thu treasury and ask him to displace a public ofhoor because in hcfmneo of law he makes contracts in violation of huv if I show him tho report of a congressional com mittee stating these facts I can get no attention paid to il it will not do The stream does not rise higher than its fountain and you cannot expect purity nor economy in disbursing the government funds nor in making contracts to carry on the government from subordinates when the head is in the same boat Why ladies and gentlemen I have shown from reports of the congressional committees I have repeatedly talked about it in the house of representatives so miich so that they called mo a common scold because I have tried to ding dong these things into their cars until they reformed those abuses gentleman of policy changed the name of his express company dur ing the war to the Southern Ex press Company He was cheekby jowl with Breckinridge Davis and all the rest of them carrying their messages and dispatchesfor them was in heartfelt sympathy with them during the war keeping however his precious body out ot harms way by making himself more useful to them than in any other capacity After tho war lie became one of the most radical of tho radicals and got elected the first Governor of that State lie came up to Washington when he found there was a Legislature in Georgia that he could not manipu late to vote bonds or sell railroads and to do other things that he re quired in his financial policy He came to Washington and asked us to reconstruct the State lie want ed us to turn out that Legislature call them together again and make every one of them take what was known as the test oath which we had provided should be taken by officers of tho United States They had taken the oath described by their State constitution but if he could mako them lake the test oath ho could weed out a great many members of tho Legislature and leavo a body of men Unit lie could handle He came to Wash ington he was cheekbyjowl with the President Morton of Indiana became one of his intimate friends and Chandler and tho rest of them Tho President sent in his annual message to Congress to which I will call your attention Being on the Committee on Reconstruction and finding a passage in the message I will read lo you and which I did not understand 1 took it to Ihc President us you will sec This is the passage Speaking of Geor gia he says Under these circumstances 1 would submit to you that is Con gress whether it would not be wise without delay to enact a law authorizing the governor of Georg ia that is Bullock to swear the members originally elected to the legislature requiring each member to take the oath prescribed by tho reconstruction act and none to he admitted under the third clause of the constitution Well as the reconstruction act had never presented an oath to bo administered to members of the state legislature I was at a loss to GEN JOHN F FAR1VSWORTH I have shown Unit it has been a eonccive what the president meant for by Grant and Boutwell pprop last year save only one and Hint is tho Eoor unpopular Attorney General 1 ope it is not because of this rcmarka blo economical trait iu hia character that it is contemplated it tlio other uml of the capitol to relieve him from furth er public service Dawes hopes that it is not be cause of his economy that the At torney General is to be turned out of public ottice and snys so ironi cally He WHS turned out after ward Now gentlemen we have great ly reduced the necessity of expen diture of the Government since the last year of Andrew Johnsons Administration We had reduced thcarmy very had puid off a real many old debts we hud re duced largely the floating debt oi the nation and yet they estimate more for carrying on Ihe Government under Grant than for the last year of Johnson And yet they talk about economy in the admiiiislralion of the Government and in its expenditures It is rank humbug Whv all the revenue collected in 1800 and that found its way into tho Treasury from the CnstomhouseB from the direct tuxes from tho enlcs of public lands amounted to lint 550051000 while in 1871 we collected 000000 from the people Cheers That is the amount that found its ecutive Republican Committee and solicits our little subscriptions to swell the aggregate of their gains and their treasures A didnt get any thing from you did they General Gen has not gone yet Why sir that firm of Jay Cooke it Co has alreadv amass ed untold millions ns the financial ajronts of this gnvernmcnf Von talk about restoring specie pay ments nnd on your platform alter Illinois transporting materials when they would get better me chanics at the very place where the building was lo be erected and at cheaper wages Why do they do that They do it because if they hired mechanics at tho point where the building was erected every body in that vicinity would know what was paid they would know what the building cost but whon they bring their material and me chanics thousands ot miles from the ident had been imposed upon J wont up to him nnd said to him I find a passage in your message 1 Commentary Upon Ills Speech at St Charles Pledges Made by Him to Support Gcueral Grant From the Aurora 111 Beacon Since the 19th of September 1851 there has been no Republican Con gressional Convention in the Sec ond District of Illinois where John K Farnsworth has not been a can didate In 1854 ho was beaten by Mr Woodswortii in 18SO by Isaac N Arnold and in 1872 by Stephen A Huslburt At every other con vention he was times after a very severe struggle then triumphantly electedby majorities some as great as 14000 lor more than one session he stood upon the llopr of Congress backed by a majoaity larger than that which returned any other member and respected by his constituents as one who they deemed true to the principles of the party whose suf frage he received Of late years it has become more and more dificnlt to return him Tlie opinion gained ground that his private lite was not such as to en title him to the respect of the high minded men of which his constitu ency was made up that he paid lit tle regard to the feelings or wishes of the people whose votes he bien nially desired that he had come to think himself the owner of his district and beyond all very in dolent in the discharge of his duties which his long experience and great trust reposed in him by his constituency demand should be performed with the bestofiiis abil ity Against tliese and other charges it became difficult for his old friends to make head and in G3 and 70 his nomination was at tained only after moat persistent aud strennoua effort The feelings ol his constituency toward him may also be inferred from the fact that iu 1870 an independent opponent J C man who could have received no general public fa vor as against any other candidate Farnsworths magnifi cent majority of 14000 down to a simple plurality with a majority of 300 against him This year his rcnomination seem ed impossible The charges of pre vious years were urged with even greater persistency by his longtime enemies and his conduct had not been such as to give bin friends the full opportunity they desire to re fute them Beside the Chicngo Tribune the Springfield Mass Republican and other of the socall ed Liberal papers labored to pro duce impression that he was favora ble to the Cincinnati movement That charge well established in a district so thoronghly believeing in Grantas docs the Fourth Illinois was suflicienfto put tho last nail in the political coffin of any man But when Farnsworth made his of U S Grant of Illinois and Henry Wilson of Massachusetts as the Repub lican candidates for President and Vice Presideut and pledge to them our en thusiastic support John F Farnsworth was at Elgin consulted with and accepted the support of the delegation of the convention which passed the above resolution He confidently ex pected to receive the nomination for Congress was about DuBois Opera House during the progress of the convention counseled and advised with the men who labored so percistantly for his nomination and who failed by three votes to carry their point The evening of the convention he returned to St Charles The next morning he lookup his journey to New York and saw Greeley Last week he returned from the East and had consultations with Herrington and others of the old copperhead school Rumors began to fly that he was about to leave his old friends yet few believed the man could be so base as to betray those who upon the strenalh of of his own pledges had labored so zealously aud with him been de feated in the District Convention His baseness was however con firmed in the Tribune and Times of Wednesday which bore a letter over his own signature surrender ing himself to the Greeley Democ racy aud branding himself in view of his late profession as utterly unworthy the confidence of men ts one who had sunk every princi ple of manhood in a tliirec for of flce who would deceive and be tray friends who can never again secure the confidence of those who know him whoio weakness and dishonesty will be mourned by those who know the magnificent opportunities he has sacrificed to wounded ambition and who is already despised by those among whom he has placed himself We have alluded thus at length to the late Congressional canvass simply in justice to those who sup ported Farnsworth honestly and sincerely While we favored a change yet we knew Farnsworths friends to be honest in their con victions and in no wise responsi ble for his base action John F Farnsworlh carries no strength to the enemy he wounds only those who have been his life long men who have stood behind him sinco he was a young lawyer of Kane county and have aided him to every opportu nity to become a leading man in the nation R R Tl M E TA BL E P C fc ST I Arrive

and will you begood enough to ex tor tho Cincinnati people had put a I place nobody knows what the remanding a speedy rctnrn lo specie payments you at Philadel phia said wo too resolve that we are in favor of a speedy return to specie payments but you have been three years getting down to specie payments and gold is worth as much today as it was two years ago It has been down to 10 per cent premium it is now up again to where it was two years ago and thus it goes on fluctuating Why Because your Secrelary of the Treasury during the Insf two years has paid over premium for our own bonds and is continu ing to pay that premium today If he would come down to specie payments and make a greenback as building costs and they can make it up in vouchers just as they please 1 could stand here and talk to you from until sundown and show you the unmitigated corruption and extravagance in disbursing the pub lic money in the last two years of the administration and if you re elect it for another four years its last days will be worse than its first Why ladies and gentlemen one of the secretaries it the president thcro are two or three that are of ficers of Ihc this one in Bubcock is a ma jor in one of the engineer regi ments lie receives his nay as major of the regiment with qnar way into tho Treasury the not amount besides what was pocketed by your Tom irurphyw and yonr Leets and Stockings and llicrcct these principles they were of my existence and they are so noTv and when 1 have concluded speaking here today I defy any man in this audience to point his finger lo a single thing that I may say wliich shall swerve oue hairs breadth from those same principles Then there ia no change iu me on principle is there lo what have I changed Whv then do you denonnce me Because I do not support Gen Grant Cheers That is alltheres about it Now who 3 U S Grant that all men Should support him for a second term of the Presidency A young man sent to West Point and edu cated by the Government for the profession of arms served for a short time iu the army resigned his commission and retired to private life In private life we do not hear that he was very success ful He neither buit up reputa tion nor fortune nor a great nsrae When the war broke out he patri otically anil dotifuliy tendered bis services to tho Government and appointed first colonel then brigadier general then a ciajor general iu the army He was successful and I am not disposed to plock one single laurel from his brow at the same time I am not disposed to concede what is so often slteil by his he saved the nation Cheers There were many other successful military heroes There were Gens Thomas Sherman and Sheridan there was Mansfield and inany other who fell in battle manv military heroes who were quite us successful SB Grant but behind them alt Ibere was a patriotic sol dier who went on foot in the heat of the day and in the dust cheers 1 the men who did nolride on horse back nor wear epaulette upon their they saved their countrys life Cheers and a voice Thats And it is sad to reflect how soon the patriots who lie in unmarked graves all ovfirtbe South have been forgot tenwhile you aro disposed to heap honor upon honor upon the successful but unwounded military general Great cheering Grant wassuccessful as a military officer and to mark that success I as a member of the military committee of the House of Representatives reported a bill which had been referred to that committee by Mr Waabburn to confer upon him the title ol Lieutenant General That title bad been conferred upon one general officer before Wiufielil Scott after he had served until he was an old man Congress confer red upon him the title of Lien tenant General but it was expressly provided in the act that the title and in connection with it I desire of the gang cheers on its way to attention to the public Now tell me by what kind of arithmetic you propose to show nit this vast amount ol collection should die with him to pluck that from We hastened the brow of Scott when he was retired and to transfer it to the brow of Grant and he was made Lieutenant Gen eral with increased pay and emo luments amounting to more than 514000 per year That was not enough for not a great while after ward another bill was iutroduceii by Mr Washburn and referred to the military committee to make him a and to increase the pay and emoluments to over 819 000 a year The military commit tee of which at that time I was not a member reported the bill and it passed I did not expenditures of the government It is said by some and speeches of that kind are being circulated broadcast all over the country that the expenditures of the nation have been reduced that it costs less to carry on the Government TIOW in proportion to the popula tion in the United States than it did ten or twelve years ago and all that This is not true Now then let us see and 1 take this Irom the report of the Secretary of the Treasury too The expenses of the last year ol Buchanans Ad ministration 1880G1 were but 30158145005 and that included that was paid in pen sions and interest OH the public debt that we then had which de ducted left but that the Administration cost 18GOG1 when we thought it was pretty ex travagant Now the appropriation for the first year of Lincolns Ad minUlratiou This appropriation was made before the war began the bill originating in a Republi can House of Representatives in the winter of 18GOG1 appropria ted money to carry on the Govern ment for the next fiscal year amounting to ST109400300 and that included tho postal revenues which were nearly The revenues of the Postoffice De partment are collected from every body who indites a letter and are paid out again for carrying the mail and are as much a part of the revenue as anything else Now Ihe expenses of the Government in 1871 leaving out the pensions interest on tho debt sinking fund and postal revenue amounted to add postal reve nue 530000000 more and add which the War Dc parimeut received lor ordinance stores which it sold and then used the money and it makes the whole amount 515142002583 The ap propriations for 1872 for the ordi nary expenses were to which add postal revenue 000000 making S1575087B319 for the last year of this Administra tion There is no arrangement of fig ures there isno sort of sophistry that can make these figures lie Again the estimates of the Sec retary of the Treasury for the amount necessary to carry on the Government in the year 1873 are about as much or nearly as much as the appropriationsof last year Why the amount expended during the year I860 by the War Depart ment was but 1C47220272 For 1871 the amount expended by the War Department including the received for ordinance stores which I spoke of before was nearly three limes as much as the War Department cost in 1800 Now let me call your attention to some of the reasons why tho AVar Department cost so much and I will refer you to evidence you will not dispute I will read from the speech of John A Logan made two years ago when he was Chair man of the Committeeon Military Affairs in the House of Represen tatives What does be say He in 1871 and in view of the speech es of Dawes and of Logan and of Ihe figures that I have given you how you propose to show the American people that they are not paying so much pei captia for car rying on the Government as in 1800 Itcannotbcdone Cheers good as a gold dollar your green tcra fuel forage and horse while he dances attendance in one of the offices of tho while house We passed a lawafter Grant was elect ed and had commenced to appoint otlicera of the army to various civil positions and tlms double their salaries providing that no officers of the army should havo a double sal ary Now Mnj Uubcock receives as they pretend only the pay of a major of engineers but performs the duty of secretary to the presi dent Forthis IK says he gets no pay besides that the president says sir Iask why do TITO expend 537000000 on 37 regiments That is in one year a million of dollars to a regiment It is said that this Administra tion is rapidly and with great wis dom and economy funding the na tional debt at a lower rate of inter est Two years ago Congress passed an act authorizing the Sec retary of Ihe Treasury to refund 51500000000 of the national debt at 4 and D percent interest In the act is provided that the Secre tary might employ onehalf of one per cent of this amount or what ever amount was refunded lo pny the expenses of engraving print ing and advertising and refunding The Secretary undertook to put 5200000000 of the debt upon tho market He asked for subscvip tious for of Uniled States bonds at five per cent We were paying six per cent Now onehalf of one per cent on 000000 which is the whole amount authorized by the act to bu ex pended by him in doing this would have been just The Secretary went on and refunded n doing this he employed what is known as 1 that was never heard of before in this country and in no other that I know of It troubled a great many people to find out what il was It was difficult to find tho word in any lexicographies or in the dic tionaries A syndicate somebody supposed must be a combination of tho two words sin and cat Laughlcr They said it looked ike it and you will I think be of hat opinion when I getthrough it Jut it seems that tins syndicate neans a men by ome it is defined as a conspiracy f men and by others as an asso iation of men for some purpose t turns out thnfthe syndicate is composed of tho banking firm of fay Cooke Co and their asso ciates Who their associates arc Lhcy havo never told us nor has hc Secretary of the Treasury but the syndicate is Jay Cooke Co and their associates in England and America Who are Jay Cooke o They are men who were em ployed as financial agents of the government under Johnson when was Secretary of the Treasury and when McColloch ceased to be Secretary of the Treas ury he became one of the firm and ho is now engaged as a banker iu London carrying on a banking business the name of the firm be ing McColloch Cooke Co Bout woll came into the Treasury De partment nnd ho continued this firm that his predecessor McCol loch had chosen as the financial agent of the Government and made arrangements with them as a syndicate to refund this amount of money What was his bargain with thorn 1 It was to give them all that remained of the onehalf of one per cent after paying for the advertising and printing and which amounted to some or do not remember the precise and then to allow the money to remain in their back would then be worth as mud an your bond and Bontwell would i not have to pay a premium of from 11 to 10 per cent for bonds Jay Uooke Co would not havo BO mncli money as thov do now While the financial affairs of this Government continue lo be run as they are now you may never look to FCC specie payments What would become of the vocation of the gamblers on Wall street if the Secretary was to resume specie pay ments Their occupation would bo Efonp and tho gold crnmblers in IheTJiiited States would be thrown out of employment They would have nothing more to do and the Government would snvo annually the amount it now pays for pre miums in buying up its own bonds with its own greenbacks I was never very much the friend of the theory that we should pay the prin cipal of those bonds in gold nev ertheless an there seems to be some such understanding although it was not in the law that they should appointed fiupcrintendeut of be paid in gold I have submitted j ment selecting his contractors to to that but very reluctantly bnt when we might just as well have come down to Ihe hard point to a pold basis two years ago as not I do object fo prolonging the dis honor discredit of depreciated currency in this country and compelling the taxpayers of the j ventions which arc precisely alike public buildings and grounds at Washington an office wliich be longs to a civilian Tho law fixes the salary at S2uOO per 3earthe office disburses probably this year more than fl000000 in the city of Washington Babcock professes to do tho services of that office with out pay but ho drawsSl000000 out of the treasury and disburses it and files his own vouchers iu the treasury for lie makes out contracts as lie pleases without advertisc suit themselves and making up his vouches to suit himself My fellowcitizens what are the issues in this political campaign Have you read the two platforms of the parties They arc appar ently not platform of nation to pay out of their hard earnings to buy up their own bonds from 05 to 70 per cent pre mium There is no reason ior it Some gentlemen say that if wo undertook to resume specie pay ments it would produce financial disaster Humbug Within the last few years has not gold been up to 180 and clear down to 10 per cent premium without financial disaster Has not gold frequent ly dropped down more than it would have to drop now fo get to par Certainly it has Why sir if the Secretary of the Treasury should give notice today that af ter six months he will redeem in gold dollar for greenback what would bo tho result Every man who is hoarding his gold would be bringing it out and selling it the banks would produce their gold and go to soiling it Gold ivonkl fall tomorrow one or one and a half or two per cent next week it would fallagain and so on un til the end of the six months there would not be a margin of not more than onefourth and onehalf per cent between the two Neither tho bankers nor the merchants would feel it at all anywhere but taxpayer would feel it when they came to pay the bonds because then aSlOOO greenback would buy a 31000 bond just exactly as 51000 in gold buys a 51000 bond Why should these large bond holders in England these capital ists and speculators this Jay Cooke Co havo the privilege of receiv ing gold for their bonds and then turning right round and selling it to the government at a premium of IS per cent My follow citizens T cannot de tain you to go further into these fi nancial questions I could show you good reasons why the govern ment spends so much money I see that some of the papers say that if I tell the truth in my Jotter towit that there has been extravagance in the expenditure of public money by this admiuistration beyond that of any other that I ever knew that I have not done my duty in not de nouncing it heretofore Why I could point these gentlemen to page after page in The Congres sional Globe where I have denounc ed extravagance to committee after committee that I have had iustrue Baltimore convention affirm ing the Cincinnati platform in every word The latter declares in favor of civilservice reform and of the one term principle for President it also declares in favor of the rights of the people ol the differ ent States to selfgovernment These are the principal issues pre sented by the platforms Now may I call your attention to this subject of government in I tlio States During ilia existence tho Reconstruction Committee of the House ot Representatives I was a member of that committee and assisted in framing the various bills that were passed I gave my hearty concurrence to bills that wore framed and passed for the re construction of tho rebel States When thcss bills ha1 passed and these States in accordance with the provisions ot the bills had elected officers Legislatures mem bers of Congress had adopted con stitutions In accordance with the provisions of our bills I was dis posed then after these States had boon set upon their feet agaiu to grant them the same rights that wo in Illinois or in any other Siate enjoyed If there is anything like uuiou among the States anything like fraternity and equal rights you must give to one State llio same rights that another possesses when it was proposed therefore to reconstruct some of these States I did not agree to it We will take the case of tho State ot Georgia Georgia iu pursuance of the law that we passed was reconstructed sent its members to tho House of Representatives who served thro a Congress their Senators were not admitted being kept out on the ground of iueligibility or some thing ot that sort their Legisla ture assembled but there was in formality ot tho organization of it and some of the members were voted out improperly as their own Supremo Court afterwards plain to me what yon moan by it and I read to him the passage I have just read to you The presi dent took his cigar out of his mouth after a deliberate whilT or two and looking over answered me thus well 1 really cannot say what that does mean Morton put that in So Morton put that in the constitution of the United States provides that the president shall annually deliver to congress his messagewith such recommend ations that he may make but Mor ton put that in I did not pursue my enquiries any further in that quarter nor did I oven go to Mor ion to ask him what he meant for I did not recognize his right to send his recommendations to Oonoress in the message of the President ell we kept Georgia dangling at the end of the rope for a year and a half after she was entitled to ad mission in both houses of congress before wo admitted her members and then we did it with a bill re quiring new conditions and new exactions from the slate but a few of us in the two houses of congress in Iho Senate was one as chairman of the committee on judiciary and I as member of the reconstruction committe in the house and a few other republican members fought against these ex actions and demands of Gov Bul lock ami we finally succeeded in defeating his plan Why sir they actully framed a bill and forocd it through one of the houses of Con gress providing for the continu ance of the term of office of the legislature of Georgia for another twoyeirs beyond the time provided by itrf constitution and extending Bullocks term to years We beat them at that finally It was only at last at the committee of conference of which I was a member and Ben Butler another that we beat him and beat Grant and beat Bullock and beat Morton and beat the thieves that were preying upon the vitals of in this manner I do dot charge that Grant was knowingly wasdls honestly with malice aforethought in complicity in this matter I only do charge that he was controlled In this matter as lie was in his mes sage Morton did it in his mes sage and Ben Butler and Bullock put in the bill What has been the result At the time I was denounced as was Senator Trumbull by the organ of the Administration at Washington The Chronicle denounced and charged me with being a Democrat and in sympathy with rebels and all that sort of thing because I more than usually desirous to be come a candidate He was particu larly anxious ho said in order ihsit he might be purged of tiie disgrace to which he had been subjected in the campaign of two years wishing to be returned to Washing ton once more indorsed by some thing near the Republican majority of the district At an interview with him aboutthat time we iuquir ed relative to his relations to Grant We told him tho telegrams in the Liberal papers tho allusion lo him by the notorious Gath of the Chicago Tribune and the assertions of Samuel Bowles that lie wortlO favored the Cincinnati movement were doing him great if they were true he MISCELLANEOUS The balance of trade is disturbed in Wilmington N C by the fact that watcrmellons are only three i cents apiece while cholera mixture is a dollara bottle A

any other man had reason to Ihink so that while he did not desire the rcnom ination of General Grant but would much prefer Colfux Blaine or Wil son at the head of ie he should support the nominee of the Philadelphia Convention returned to Washing ton a day or two alter that inter view and his friends commenced to lay tho plans of the campaign After tha Philadelphia Conven tion Farnsworlh returned to Illinois to lake active part in securing his own return The Tuesday follow ing I hat convention and the day before the Geneva first primary held in the worth was sent for to address an evening meeting of colored people in the Court House Ho complied and made tho first speech In it he spoke well but briefly of Grant adding that his character and ser vices were well known to every person in the room and it was but waste of time to discuss lliem Of tlenry Wilson however con cerning whom ho thought many knew but little he spoke more at length and eulogized him said he always had been Ihc friend of the colored man and they should stand by him iu every exigency At the conclusion of Farnsworths remarks his old enemy Mr May bourne spoke and took Farnsworth to task for having in no part of his speech specially declared that ho would vote for Grant At the con clusion of Maybournes remarks Farnsworth was again called to the stand and Maybourne repeated his questions Farnsworth answered that he was not to be criticised by that man but would conceal notljiug from the audience He then re would not bow to this attempt at iterated that before the convention Jio had preferred some other man than Grant to head the ticket but that now it was the duty of every decided They had a man tor Governor there or the name of Bullock who before the rebel lion was sent down to Georgia by the Adams Express Compa ny from the State of New York as an agent of theirs He was there through the war and beins a stealing Afterward a committee of Senate ferreted out the fact that this paper Grants organ in the city of Washington had been bought and bribed with money taken out of theTrcasnry of Geor gia and paid to it by Bullock And how has it turned put It turned out as I proflcicc it would on the lloor of Congress Bullock went on and on stealing the bonds of the State leasing railways running them and pockeling the money until another Legislature was elected and preferred articles of impeachment against him When he found that he was to be im penched one day he resigned bis office as Governor and rau away and he cannot bo found today within the limits of the United States A requisition was sent for him lo Buffalo but ho had gone to Canada to avoid indicttuent A committee in Georgia investigated the frauds upon their treasury and found that Bullock had used up of the bonds of that poor State and they could not ac count for but of hem This infernal thief had actually stollen 50000000 of the people of Georgia This was the Governor that the President wanted we should autthorize to call the Legis lature again together and admin ister the test oath according to Morton CONCLUDED NEXT WEEK A Chinaman in Weatbervillc California whose life was insured for a large amount was seriously hurt by falling from a wagon There was some doubt of his ever getting better and at length one of his friends wrote to the iunurance company Charley half dead likee half money A precocious little sixyearold was out lookingat some young kittens among which was one of a rich yellow color Taking thia one up he ran into the house and ex claimed Ma ma I think this one is almost ripe Republican to sustain the nominee of that he should do so So deep was the conviction produced that at the adjournment of the meeting three rousing cheers were given for Grant and three for Farnswotth but none could be had for Maybourne Balavia was well known as an an tiFarnsworlh town and an especial and strong personal effort on the part of tbe General was necessary to secure thedelegation To this end ho epent some time there The story of his proclivities gained circulation and in order to salisfy themselves of the truth of these stories circulated by the men who had lang been Farnsworths en emies Geo C Partridge and N S Young sought an interview with him iu the office of the Messrs Newton In answer to their direct iuqairies he ngain staled liis wish that Wilson Colfax or Blaine might have been at the head of the ticket that he should supporttbe Philadelphia nominees He fur ther stated that he thought Grant infinitely preferable to he should not consider the Govern ment safe for an hour in the hands oj Greeley On tho strength of these professions tho Batavia dele gation was secured for him Farnsworth made similar re marks in Aurora and we can men lion several gentlemen to whorr ho made the same professions of support of the Pailidelphia nomi nees and thus secured their sup port At tho County Convention the delegation was instructed to casi their votes in the CongressionV Convention at Elgin for Johu F Farnswortn The convention also passed the folio wiug Resolved That the Republicans o Kano county in convention assembled accept and approve tho
