GAUtBiicno, 111., Oct. 8.-The president and party arrWed here to-day on their way to the western Grand Army reunions. The party was met at the trairtK by a roceptlon committee and can-ducted to the speakerB stand, when the mayor delivered an addreBs of welcome . to whicn the president responded bb fol- y lows: 3fr, Mayor and Fellow (Jiihens: The magnitude of thla great assemblage today tills me with surprise and consternation as I am called to make thin attempt ti speak to you. I came here to meet J'rth the survivors ot tne old brigade. I Jciioie in the expectation that the day r would generally oe iipent in tueir cow-pauluuBUip anu in tne exchange ot tnose cordial greetings vvmcn ex^ruootneiuuu. ucsa aaU love Which wo oeur lu each uiber. but lu my uurprittu 1 have tuuud . that here to-day ihe nrat urjgaue lor ine hrst time in Us niatory baa oeeu captured. |Great laughter.] They are a uuuy of reprboeutativu aoiuiers comiug Ixow these great coutral staves o( Ohio, Indian and luiuuie, and as the Dorders ut ineee amies tuucueu in (rlendly exchange, so the elbows ot these neroos and patriots touched in me great BHuggie I or the union. lappiuuntj.J vVno BUuuiu any who were cuiete wneu ail were DraVj? The distinction tnat Illinois may claim in connection WHu tuie organization is that giveutqual courage, ilueilty anu loyalty to every man. . Illinois turmened tnree-fifuie ot tne brigades. [Applause.] The thought has occurred to me, anu the more J. have thought ot it tne more sure I am ol tne conclusion tnat nowhere on the lace ol j the eartn, except iu tne United Btateag* ' America, unaer no oilier tUg tunc kisses auy oretze, could such an assemblage as this be gathered, [Applause and cheers.] Who are these? Liuos ln'o their faces. Hce the evidences of cd,r-\ tentment, thrltt, prosperity, intelligent that we read in all ot these faces. They hnve come from ail thOBd homes of village, city and farms and here they are to-day, the strength and rock ot our security as a nation. The people who furnished an Invincible army when Us bag was lu danger, the people ' upm.'whose enlightened conscience and ! 6j(jd,iearing hearts this country may tMui'v/itti undaunted hope. [Applause -a%dcheers.] Here is the ultimate (llstri- > bunyn of governmental power, of all the efforts of presidents and cabinets and judges andnrmies, even to maintain this country to continue it in this great year 6>t prosperity. It is by this great law abiding liberty-loving people, by whom they are chosen to these important offices. It is the great thought of our country that men shall be governed as little as possi ble, that the full liberty shall be given to individual effort, and that the restraints of the law should be reserved for the tur x bulent and disorderly. That is what makes your communities peaceful; that makes these farm homes safe. It ia not the policemen, it 1b not the soldier. It is this great and all pervading American sentiment that exalts the law, stands with threatening warning to the law-breaker, and above all it is that pervading thought that gives to every man what is hiB, and claims only what Is ours [Great applause] The war was only zought that tne law might noi lose its sanction and its sanctity. [ApplauBe.] If we had suffered that loss dismemberment would have been a lesser one. But we taught those who resisted law and taught the world that the great sentiment of Kyal y to our written law was so strong in this country that no associations, conspiracies or combinations could overturn it. ["OoodI Good!" and applause.] Our government will not fail to go on iu its increasing career of development in population, in wealth, In intelligence, and in morals, so long as we hold up everywhere in the locality, in the community and In the nation, this ' gretft thought that every man shall keep the law which secures him in his own rights, and shall not trample upon the .rights or another. [Applause.] Let us -"Vlivlde upon tariH [laughter] and finance, but let there never, be a division among- the American people upon this question that nowhere shall the law be overturned in the interest of any body. [Great applause.J If it fails of the beneficent purpose Welch should be the object of all law, then let the people diBp iir, but while It is the law let us insist that it shall be obeyed. [Applause.] I heir 7e to-day that the great rock of our security Is this deeply embedded thought in the American heart that it ib not here as in many of our Bpanish-Amerlcan countries, which Bometimes give their devotion to man, for we give our devotion to a law, to a consti-flag. [Great applause.] was that in that hour ot gloom,, when the richest contribution of all thigems that Illinois basset in our national diadem, Abraham Lincoln {prolonged applause] fe>l in that hour of the* ' M'rnmstion of bis work by the nana an isasaln, Garfield, who was to meet a lu -xe, might say to the trembling and dismayed people on the streets of New York "Lincoln 1b dead, but the government at Washington still lives." [Great applause and oheera ] To my fellow citizens, to all those who through your mayor have extended you r greeting, to all who are here assembled, I return my most sincere thanks. I do not look upon euoh assemblage as these with out profound emotion. They touch me and I believe they teach me, and I am ' �J}*8'he lessons are wholesome'lessoos. We have bad here to -day this procession of veterans, aged and feeble many nf them, that is a retrospect; tbat Is part of a great story of the past written fin glorious letters on a flrma-taent that is spread above the world; and in these sweet children who have followed, we read the future. How sweet it was In the procession to-day to tee them bearing in their infant bands tutio,?, to a Bo r the same banneis tbat those veterans carried amid the shock of ball, and, of dying men. [Ayplause,] I had occasion at the centennial celebration of the inauguration of Washington in New YurK, being impressed by the great display 01 the national colors, to mane at tho banquet the suggestion tbat the fis*|� should be taken into tne aonool houses [applause], and I am glad to know that in tnat state there ib uaily'a little drill of the children that pays honor to the flag. [Prolonged applause] but, my friends, the constitution provides that I shall annually give information to congress ot the state of the union anu make such recommendations as I may think wise, and it Hbb gen erally, 1 think, been unuerstood that this affirmative provision contains also negative and implies that the president Ib to give no one else except congress auy information us to the state of the Union, and that he shall especially make no suggestions. [Lo^ijihter and applause.] But L would not on an occmrence likeathls, when 1 am greeted here uy friends and fellow citizens ot all shades nf thought in pollticB and the church. Bay one word that could mar the harmony of tula great occasion. [Oncers.] I trust we are all met here together to day as loyal, loving American citizens [applause] and over nil our dissensions and differences there is this great arch of love and loyalty binding us together [applause] and now will you excuse me from further speech, when I have said again tbat I am profoundly grateful to the people of Oilssburg and this vicinity, and to these my comradt-B in aims, who havu bo warmly opened their arniB to welcome me to-d�y. [Long cheeiB,] At the close ot the president's speech Secretary . Tracy was Introduced and spoke brielly, thanking the people for the magnificent reception anu welcome extended, and congratulating the people of Illinois on their prosperity. At the conclusion of Secretary Tracy's address, Congressman Grosvenor of Ohio, was introduced and spoke briefly, af ier which the meeting came to a close. The party repaired to Knox College, wnere the corner stone of the Alumni ball was to be laid by the president. Dr. Newman Batenian, president of the Knox College, pronounced the invocation and Professor Comstcck read a sketch of the origin and growth of the college. Professor J. A, AdamB then introduced the president, The president explained that he could not Bpeak at any length, because of the strain of speaking out ot doore, to which he was unaccustomed. He explained that education was patriotic labor, because it htted the youth tor good citizenship. Be concluded hiB remarks aa fol lows: "Wo are then engaged in a patriotic work as we lay this corner Btone of this new edifice, part of an institution that has had a great career of usefulness in the past, and is now entering on field of enlarged usefulness. We lay tbiB corner Btoae and rededicate this in-Btlution to truth, purity aud loyalty and love of God." [Applauae.] Following this the coiner stone web pi need in position and the president with n trowel carefully closed it and covered the seamB with morter. Great applause greeted this performance which brought tbe ceremonies to an end. The party now repaired to the hotel for dinner, and at 3 o'clock the reunion ot the First brigade, the president's old command, was held at the opera house. To this it was found imperative to admit only old veterans and their immediate families. The appearance ot President Harrison on the stage was the occasion for an out-burt of cheers from the assembled veterans that made the very walla tremble. Gen. Dustiu then called the meeting to order. After the applause bad somewhat subsided President Harrison addressed tbe veterans of his old brigade as follows: "Oomradei: The object of my visit to Galesburg was this meeting, which we are to have now, I should not, I think, have1 been persuaded to make this trip except for the pleasure which I expected to find in meeting the men of the old brigade, from moBt of whom I have been separated since the muBter out days. Time has wrought its changes upon the faces of us all You recognize me because there were not bo many colonels as there were soldiers-fortunately, perhaps, for the country, [Laughter.] I saw you as individuals in the brigade when it was drawn up either for parade or battle. When we were associated in a brigade i n 1862 we were all somewhat new to milita. ry life. The officers as well as the men had come together animated by a common pjrpose from every pursuit In life. We were not bo early in the field as Borne of our comrade?. We yield them the honor of longer service, but I think we may claim for ourselves that when our hands were lifted to take the enlistment oath there was no inducement for any man to go into the army under any expectation that he was entering a holiday. In the early days of the war men thought or hoped it would be brief. They did not measure its extent or duration. They did not rightly estimate the awful sacrifices that were to be made before peace with honor was ae-Bured. The clouds were dark in tbe days of '62, McOlellan v hot<sl ^d went to sleep with the, that and then tied tho pi low case arouod 0 � * his head.
