In the meantime the children who bad marched the entire distance without a murmur of discontent were seated on the Green award in front of the hand and the miscellaneous it aaa Embly congregated around about. Then the exercises of the Day were opened by a hymn from the choir alter which the Rev. L. I. Root addressed the throne of Grace in Earu eat supplication. The Hon. O. P. Morton waa Toneu introduced by Hon. D. E. Williamson and Bald fellow citizens i despair of rank aug my Ali heard by All of this vat do ably. I have not the Limo this afternoon to aay nor Yon the to Bear All that a rising in in my memory demanding utterance. This is to me a solemn and a Sweet occasion. It in full of thrilling memories some of which Are exceedingly precious and Many of them Are end. It is a Beautiful and a custom to come together once every year to decorate the Graves of our hero and martyrs. It must be interesting and Moat profitable for the surviving soldiers to came together onco a year around the Ambo of their dead comrades there to renew and to brighten the Chain of Friendship that was first linked together on Many a Bard fought Field and toilsome March in Many a sad bivouac where they had no shelter but lie skies and no thought to cheer but the Hope of returning borne and of a country it served. Toe tie id whose memories we to Day celebrate their bodies have mingled with the dust their mortal Spirita Are alike beyond the reach of Praise or censure. We can poem Lily do nothing that will a Fleet them. Why Tinea do we come together upon this occasion to decorate the Graves of our dead Goldie a first he cause of Lia effect upon ourselves for while it u sad yet it con Reva to us a solemn pleasure. It is Good for us to be Here and to revive within our be a rut those memories of the great Muae for which those Meo died for their suffering and sacrifices. We do it for Ilsi fiut Nee upon our children upon those who Are a it come after us. There Are Many Little children Here to Day who will Long remember the solemnities of this occasion., and they will to instructed test in the language of the old roman poet it is Sweet to die for ones country. They will be instruct a by it in those duties of patriotism but will soon devolve Upolu them when they shall take our places. It will be to them a pleasant and a aaa recollection in the years yet to . We decorate these Graven not merely to commemorate the courage of tue men who lie burled Here. Courage is always Dali Tel Ful. Th6recanbeno True Soldier wit Boul courage. The world has Ever admired it and it Ever wiil but courage is of Roc u to the Masa of Mankind common Tike to the american the German the English the French and the russian Soldier. It belongs to most races. We intend by this to commemorate chiefly the great cause in a Boru three non died to principle for which they fought and Laid Down their lives. We loot beyond Tasir death to the cause for which they suffered. While we extend our sympathies to to Beer living friends and their sur wiring families those who died upon the Field of Battle la the actual Aback of War were never perhaps much entitled to them because to Dib upon the Field of Battle mid the clash of contending armies fighting for a just cause be Giot Lou but when death comes on in the loneliness of desolation of the Hospital where the Soldier is wasting Day by Day with fever with wounds and with disease with do Mother Wile or Stater Prater tto minister is love Only can minister and with none but the rough Bond of a Comrade to wipe Clammy per pint Ion from the brow then Day at is terrible indeed. It is a great cause we Ich we to Day Honor in honouring the Ash of these heroes. That cause i Trust will Ever be fresh Sod Green la our hearts. We told that we should Bury the Ana to Eitta of the War. I my so. I would Bey were in the deep to Eton of the oos an burled but not the a Rindles for Wal feb to fought not the character of men who and All the the cause Lor which they died. West mud never forget that. The heroes of to revolution have All passed away and the Mim Sci Tiosh of that War Are bailed in the rave with them but the ration of Independence is More popular than Ever before and the nation is preparing to celebrate it next year to celebrate to a grand and impressive manner the great Centennial event of our Independence. The principles upon which that War was fought 1 Trust Are More broadly cherished to Day than Ever of lore lie ter understood certainly ro0j® generally applied and so i Trad it will be with the for which these to died and for which you soldiers Lough in the last War. We can never appreciate the sacrifices which those to a made. A can not appreciate the Ervin i Render. By the living soldiers now before us. Left their families their Hornea i i comforts and pleasures of life took ths1r live in their hands and went to the fluid with Tho understanding that Many of them pet baps the majority of them would never return who risked everything endured everything that their country might Uve. I say we never have and never can appreciate the service and sacrifices that to fatso men have made the Confederate army displayed valor and High courage. Nobody denies that. The majority of the people or the South perhaps through a vicious education in regard to slavery and the motive and origin of our government were sincere but after All the great fact remains that they Longhty of the wrong Side they fought against their country against Liberty and humanity. We Cru not not put them on the Samo level with e Union soldiers in regard to pensions Una in regard to born no without Disho Noring to principles for which these men fought. If there la such a thing As right As Fetiu Gotobed from wrong if there a such i thing As n Good cause an distinguished i of a bad cause Theu these soldiers wore upon the right Side fighting opon the Side it god and humanity and their e Mnira and the others were upon the v Rong bide. It is an important Principe never to be forgotten Tea. Soldiers who fight Vanst Belr own you airy never deserve Well of that country. While vie have buried the animosities of to War while have forgiven the precipitator of the d hellion for none have been punished and All but one Hundred have Bie i made eligible to the highest office in the Laud yet it Dwa not follow to amp two arc to Honor them or to i it Tow upon them Reward. Forgiveness a Tiriro but that dont necessarily carry with it Honor and Reward. I have never thought i should do such a Biog but i be Lleve now that. I am willing to vote for a Bill next Winter taking away and relieving them of Tho last Disanti titles crowing oct of the rebel Ion to take effect on the lib of july next no that All men of whatsoever race or color and without regard to previous condition of servitude or of arm., that we May begin the next upon Equality before the Law. Applause and inn god put it in the hearts of the people every where North Aud South in All its full sex and extent the new birth of the United state and administer Justice humanity and Charity and the exercise of each and All these gilts and do those things that they would have other do unto them. Permit me to speak to Day somewhat of the part Indiana bore in Tho rebellion. As the gov Armor of Tho state during the War and having intimate connection with the organization of to armies that went Forth from Indiana i feel deeply Udo this subject. I take a just Eride in Quot the glorious Quot part which Indiana Ore in the struggle which a my excuse for speaking of it a very few minutes to Day. When or. Lincoln made his first Call to it a 75,000 men a requisition was made Apon me As governor of the state for six regiments the quota of this state under that Call. These six regiments were to consist of 840 men each. I imbued my proclamation asking for volunteers. A prominent paper published in the City of Indianapolis said that when governor Moron get. Six regiments of men in such a cause we will All know it. And yet before the end of the or there had been mustered into the service of the United slates for the Tate of Indiana 2t 8,3ü7 men. There were of the magnitude of the army i might refer you to to fact that during the War. I it governor i med 28,884 Yommi Anion to officers of Indiana regiments and batteries. A Large proportion of theae were to fill vacancies of Vourse occasioned by death and resignations. Indiana troops fought during the War in six states and one territory from Pennsylvania to Texas. The were in 308 engagements in the first Battle fought after or. Lincoln made Bis first Call for troupe and in the last Battle of the War. The first was at Phillippi in wee Tern Virginia. We thought at the that it was a very Largo a flair. We rrb Aix excited about it. I re member that the Bella of Indianapolis were rung. When compared with the great Battles it waa rather a Small affair. The last Battle was fought at Palmetto Ranche near the old Battle Field of Palo Alto Weie about 250 Indiana troops belonging to the us regimen were in cont lest with .500 rebel and a Battery o six guns. It is impossible to give an accurate statement of the sacrifice made by the people of Indiana in the Way of Money and property entirely aside from the taxes which to have paid and Are paying to defray the expenses of the War Aud of pay the National debt. The different counties and cities in Indiana and townships Aud lae smaller towns in their c a potato capacities voluntarily Contri baud is d much for the Relief of soldiers families for local bounties and other military Conn agent expenses. As shown by the records this sums in $20.258.040. This does not embrace the contributions made by private individuals of Money arid property for sanitary Purpo be of which we can get no accurate estimates. A compilation a been made by the adjutant general $30,000,000 would Over the voluntary contributions of the people of indians. I claim for Indiana nothing above other states but i claim for Ber As much. Ido not claim that her Roopa were braver and foam it better than the troops of other Susua but 1 do claim with just Pride that they were just As Brave Aud fought As Well and were everywhere a much distinguished As the troops of other states. That a All that these Brave men would ask and that they claim a their right. When i first began the appointment of officers during the War not understanding the Mif Ess it being All new to Rue As it was to most of you i. Tried to please every body and his friends and i soon found that it do that it a impossible. Then i determined that i would follow the dictates of my own judgment without fear or favor and do Tho Best 1 could. I did t know whether i would get out of the War with a single Friend or not but i had gut to the Point when i Felt that it make no difference. I sometimes made mistakes sometimes i appointed the wrong Man. Rut i do congratulate myself that the officers from Indiana a a body would compare favourably with the officers from any other state and that to few of them disgraced the Flag and the state and Dlab noted heir commissions. Of the private Soldi is from 1 Lidian a 1 speak no Edco Mitun. Their record a written in every annal of the War. Their or silos Are upon every Tongue. Whatever May have been said of Indiana before that for the misfortune of the second regiment to Mexico for which that regiment a in no Wise to blame after the last War nothing Baleen Bald to her discredit. Tody no state in the Union Aland higher than do the Sute of Indiana. Every regiment to me had a separate solemn Botory from the it was first projected Aud the first recruiting of Ioor waa appointed until it was organized to take the Field its Battles its victories and disasters until its final return with thinned ranks with comparatively in Stern solemn men who bad Leit Many of their comrades in tar Distant and unmarked Graves. Each regiment then has a distinct and specific history with me. A Many of Yon will wan Tny custom who a regiment left Indianapolis for the front to to Arr to the Union depot at the bad of it. While the boys always went cheering Down the streets a if they were going to a festival i was always oppressed with the Sid thought How May of Allty from each Oiler As France irom England As Germany from Spain. It was the idea that our Constitution was a Mere Compart Between Sovereign and Independent nations a Wurf. Treaty of Alli an of offensive and Defoe Edve and that when one of these states or rather one of these nations became dissatisfied with it it had the right to judge for itself As to the terms of the treaty and its Infra Mona and the remedy tor it infractions. This doctrine has been a Bane to tins country. It was Paia infused into the vein it the nation in Ita infancy that brought disease and almost a to upon its a snood. It is a doctrine from which to party a Safe not to party i belong to. The history of it shows that the doctrine a amps first proclaimed in 1786 and applied in 1812 when the governo s of Massachusetts and county Picut r fused to Honor the requisition of the Pri of cadent of the United stated for troops in the War with England because they said As governors of hot Arelyn anal Independent states they bad a right to fudge Lor themselves whether there was a contingency calling for troops. They decided not and refused to lib nor the requisition. The next application of it was in 1814, a the celebrated Hertford convection Cotapo of chiefly of old Federal lat composed of men of almost every new . You will it remember test the War with kudu cd i8i2was regarded As very Des Roc Tivo to t eci my Irce of new Rutland and that the now England states were very fiorile about it. This by Stilly about the War its Thi party gradually to take up with this do Striae of the Independence Sud sovereignty of the stale in that Hartford convention a bin proved the Tomb of every polite Day that Euter Edisto it. They then resolved that it was the d Uty of each state Ever to so legislate As to Proekt itself against the Ovios and conscript ions and the drafts of the general government except in cases where each state decided for itself that it was proper that ooh draft Lesry or conscription might be made. There was a strange feature in the history of parties about that . The old Federal party started out in favor of a s Rong out sri government Washington being a member an i Alexander Hamilton at tue Bead of it. In its opposition to that War gradually United around Sod placed itself upon Wihib doctrine of state sovereignty and denied the existence of the nation. On the other hand what was called the Republican party of that Dav. The democratic party if you plea which had bed imbued with this doctrine of state sovereignty. First by Jefferson hut Atill sup porting around occupied Wou a becoming Tbs i think it Ohio throw the War gradually drifted and took Tea place formerly by the old Federal party and so j Nacional party. In 1819. Waa. The state of its legislature declared Indiana soldiers killed in Bat i , or did while in Tho service irom disease Gallant men will return i would not riven in keen feeling my own responsibility for thus their names and places being ail Given the records of commissioned officers 852, of non comm honed officers and privates 23,764, making an aggregate of 24,416. Of the id Lana soldiers mustered into the service 13,771 were not accounted for. It has been estimated by to adjutant general of stale Gen. Terrell Wuo has perhaps the Best sources of information upon which to make it that of Ilis number 6,000 were killed upon the Field of Battle or died in Remote hospitals or by the Wayside or Perla hed in rebel prison pen Aud of whose Fate of record was made. This added to the other would make 30,416. By the census of 1870 Putnam county contained a population of 21,350. So it would seem that the state of Indiana Loat nearly 9,000 men More than the entire population of Putnam county. But that is not All. Thero were Many thou Aach of men who were discharged on account of wounds and disabilities from disease. They could no longer serve in the Field and were discharged consequently they did not die in the service. Tuey Are not Tik a into the account 1 have Given. Or this number it is estimated that 15,000 died from disability irom wounds and disease contracted in the service which added to the other sum would make 45,000 men Given by Indiana la that struggle. But the amount does nut Stop Here. I to. Many thousands of my served until their times were out or until the end of the War had their constitutions shattered by disease and by hardships Aud whose deaths have since that been hastened by these bar Dabiza wounds or disease incurred in the army. To counting the coat of All the Hen who lot their lives upon the Field or a Bee deaths were Occa stoned or hastened it will sum up to perhaps .50,000 or 00,000, possibly 70,000 men Aud the amount still goes on from year to year. Since i Wab re i have heard of the Deaibe of several of my Soldier friends to the to unto of Potram tue who were Honor ably discharged at to end of the War who since died and whose deaths were unquestionably hastened by Tea hard snips which Thev endured. I mane mention of my Friend capt. Osborne with whom Many of Yoa were acquainted. To it is All Over the state. Boldiena your numbers will grow smaller is Yon Rheet Bere from year to year your Steps will be Lees firm and your eyes Leas Bright. Rat As you go Hown the Dascil Volty of Totne you will be accompanied by the love and admiration of your fellow citizens tor the services you have rendered and the sacrifices you have made until at the foot Yon shall All find honorable Gravee. A an evidence keep fall nor toy own a sending them into the jaws of death. I could Only resolve to do All in my Power to provide for their Comfort in the Field and bring them safely Back. But Timo does not permit the to dwell longer upon this Susie it although it is full of so Many sad deep touching recollections. The Quot War is Over now. Here we Are ten years afterwards a peaceful Assembly in a Community growing stronger Day by Day Mouth by Mcnan full of Prosperity Aud with unbounded prospects Fer the future. If you were to feel u Batto Bavo earned by what it has coat you la blood Aud treasure then we can not compute the value of that which is gained and yet when we do compute the value of mat which wan gained we reflect How cheaply after All it was purchased. Although the Flower of the youth of Indiana went to the Field and Alt Bough the most courageous and generous blood of the slate was shed to should feel that the most of to Liberty of the country preserved and United waa Worth All that Aud what Wae lost from the other Stales. Now my for Luda i come to a a you another question. The a considerations Are All above the a fish considerations of the hour. There Are questions which themselves tar above All parties and sects Aud that dominate ail parties Aud All limes. Now let me Call your attention to one of the questions which it is important for you Aud your children. What was it that made the rebellion Posable that made it possible in five Mouths to org sulks a con Federal embracing 11 Ata is and 10,000,000 of people which it took us four years to conquer with All the attendant a orifices to which i have alluded. What was it that made it possible to organize ibis hostile confederacy it was not slavery alone. That waa tha great alien Las. It was the great motive. It furnished All the passion. But that of itself was wholly inadequate. Slavery left to itself would have created a Dutu rhed condition of thing in a part of the United states. It to night have furnished the a Juton for the creation of insurrection Here and there but it could n of a have organized that confidently that hostile Power. What waa the grand instrumentality by which it was accomplished it was the absence of the Alantin ent of nationality in eleven states of this Union the absence of that idea that we Are one people that we Are one nation. It was the prevalence of the doctrine that each state was a nation that instead of being one nation we were 37 nations and that oar government was h compact Between to re Riga and Independent states and that those states were As distinct and separate in their nation t he s Atea to a Sovereign and Inda pendent and the government or the United states a Mem compact of which the states Only were parties a their corporate capacity and to which the people of the United states were not a party in their aggregate capacity. I t tul in 1829 the great state of Penna Yiva la through its Legiel Sture by concurrent Resolution Dii cleared that the government waa a compact in the Nat reef a treaty be tween Sovereign and Independent nil Long. Then we come Down to 1832, and then we find South Carolina nullifying a Law of the United states the Tariff Law because in the opinion of her people that Law was destruct tvs to the i5trre8t8 of Routh Carolina and again la this doctrine of the Independent sovereignty of the states a Iso feed. Coming Down to still later to a period just before the War of the rebellion and we find Many of the old anti slavery men in their hatred of the fugitive slave Law asserting the same doctrine. Then we come to the War of the re . That doctrine waa at hand. The South seized upon it. It was a ready made instrument of destruction seized upon by slavery. It is that doctrine that enabled the South to take eleven state for the bring it of the Union and or Aniz that confederacy that Cut to so much of blood audur Tuure. Know that it is a common idea that the doctrine waa inv Mou for the Benefit it slavery Ami bit it perished with slavery and was buried in Tho same Tomb. It to not Correct historically or logically. It was declared asserted St up and applied Long be fora the slavery question was Ever raised to disturb the peace of our nation. That doctrine is a formidable threat against the life of the nation. It is a poisoned Dagger Ever at band to be clutched by Des Petate factions. It is a ready made instrument of destruction to be seized upon by any portion of the country that May it or the Tine in log be estranged or by any party. Oar country is now Grade Illy extending front the tropical to the Arctic regions from the a untie to the Pacific. Consider the Fael fio slope separated from a by 1,500 hilk4 of Dru itt and of Mountain a far off country with a different Commerce from our. Their Commerce is with Japan Aud China and the Western coast of South America and the islands of too Southern Pacific. That Commerce a now but in its infancy. It May yet be developed and change the whole commercial a Bencher of the country. The May arrive when ambitious demagogues and dangerous tue upon Tho Lar off Elope May desire to see the Pacific a Republic. Thank g a i see no signs of it now. Those states were As Loyal during the any of to states. 3ut consider the whole situation. Who can Tell what May happen in the future. Thera is no safety for ibis nation in a Long to come while any considerable portion of it shall continue to cherish and maintain the doctrine to which .1 have referred. What is the other doctrine Aud the other theory of our fathers that our government was formed by the people of the United Stales in their aggregate character that a Are one nation with Many Atalas based upon the theory that the rights of the state Are secured and guaranteed by the same instrument test secures and guarantees to the government of the United states its rights. Thus the rights of the states and the right of Tho government of the United states depend upon the same principle and the one is just As secure As to other. The old theory that might have been applicable to the thirteen original states can not be applied to thirty seven status. It a Mere d4by clothes that can not now be put on the body of the nation. Laughter of the 24 new states consider the character of 23 of them. Take the state of Indiana for example. Indiana we carved out of a territory belonging to the United Stales made a state by an act of to grass and without that act of of agrees indians would to Day be an Independent territory. And yet when Indiana and 23 other state had thus been Mode states by Cun Grom and into the Union and their Powers defined he the Constitution a Are told by this remarkable theory that brought upon us All our woe and death test jus As soon As Indiana Bec Iliae a Ata in this Way Abe became a separate original and Independent state arid Partt to n compact by which this govern Meu. Was formed. It a just As absurd a for a Man to Yuuki t that he is i own father laughter and up pupae All to state ate on an Quality. When theae Twenty four state were admitted by act of Congress Tirman Toht grrr defined and our anted by the Constitution. It in not question of the rights of states my Friend. We will not differ about that. Tho re Gate of the state and general govern ment can not be enlarged or diminished except by amendment to the Constitution of the i United states and that requires the concurrent Vole of two third of Oech Bouse and ratification by three fourth s of ail the huh it la competent in test Way to enlarge or diminish the Power of the states and the general government but it is not competent in any nth a War.
