Had a rally been advertised there is no doubt whatever that from 10.000 to 20,000 people would have been present delegations however. Were present from every township in the county.

Private Dalzell of Ohio who spoke for about Twenty minutes. In commencing he said a we Are Here this afternoon to do Honor to Theca self republicanism and also to do Honor to the great advocate of human he designed however to say a few words regarding the great issues of to Day but he would be unable to give the history of the democratic party As that would furnish a theme for a whole afternoon and then one would just get started. He referred in a very amusing Way to the Greenback theory and the cry of the democrats form or a greenbacks he spoke of the Little Black Book containing the history of the democratic party and be seethed All not to enrol their names upon its pages. In his Appeal to Young men he said there is not a Democrat in this country who will say that he is proud of any act that party Ever did. At the conclusion of his address the Hon Frederick Douglass was introduced. The audience All desired to see him and he was compelled to mount a table which stood upon the stand. Or. Douglass Laboured under difficulties in delivering his speech. He was suffering from a severe cold and his voice failed him somewhat and vet so quiet was tile vast audience that he was heard by All. Frederick Douglass Isan eloquent speaker and his address was listened to very attentively throughout. As he passed Over the history and record of this country telling the Story in his eloquent yet a impassioned manner Many of his hearers were moved to tears. We Are unable to print his address in full but a it resent the following Brief of it for the Benefit of our readers who were unable to hear him. He said it has been my privilege and experience to appear before the american people tor forty years. Sometimes As a slave again As a fugitive slave but now thanks to the logic of events and the great Republican party i appear before you to Day As a Man a citizen an american citizen. It is the boast of this country that the people can meet together and discuss the principles and the measures and the men that present themselves before us. It is truly american. It is Peculiar to us. It is american Liberty. It is the secret of progression our canvass is to be made upon parties not candidates parties make candidates and parties control candidates but candidates do not make parties. It is always the dog that wags the Tail not the Tail the dog parties grow they Are not made. They grow out of principles sentiments and doctrines. He then cited several persons who attempted to make parties and failed his illustration of the formation of parties while not entirely original Way and his audience knew that what he said was True. Referring to the solid South he said who has threatened the South that it i should be solid what has made to i solid the shot gun the ride club the red shirts and . K. Of course the South is solid. 138 electoral votes Are solid there is no need of an election i or of ballot boxes in that country the i count has already been made. Referring to the coloured people and the course the democratic party had pursued toward them he said a now i i want to Appeal to my democratic friends and ask you Why will you allow yourselves to vote with a party that is inimitable to the negroes ? Why do you hate us ? what have we done to Hurt you ? we were born under the same Blue sky we drink from the j same Crystal Springs we till the same soil we raise your Cotton and your i sugar we fought for our country be cause we loved it and Liberty. Why will you longer persecute us in the War we were legs to your boys when they were hungry we gave them bread when they were thirsty we gave them j drink when the boys were afraid to see a White face they a re glad to see i a Black one. The Black Man risked his life and went w till you at lonely Midnight and pointed out to you the North Star. He hid you in the daytime from the enemy. Why will you unite with a party that hates us and wishes to crush us out of existence ? the solid South is on our neck. The South done to allow us to vote. When the country called for Strong Brave nun to fill up the depleted ranks Wien sons were brought Home dead when churches were draped in mourning and Homes were desolate when the democratic pary in new York was burning orphans asylums Abraham Lincoln called upon the negroes to reach out Tho Iron Arni and steel Finger to put on the Blue and come to the Rescue. We answered a we Are coming father Abraham with two Hundred thousand speaking of the presidential candidates alter paying a High tribute to Gen. Gal Field As a civilian a Soldier and a statesman he said Quot if we weigh the motives of men the Scales w ill turn in favor of or Garfield. In states Manship Garfield stands incomparably higher than Hancock. Hancock s civil policy of order no. 40 is a reiteration of the doctrine of All the Ages of the past in his Case it was subordinating the military Power for the Protection of the negro to the civil Power of their masters which was the civil Power of Johnson. It was inviting murder and crime into those Southern states. Now i ask All present in this audience who Are for general Garfield to say in response to this a mighty shout went up from the audience. A and now All who Are for Gen. Hancock say Aye a to which there was not a single response. At the conclusion of his speech after three rousing cheers had been Given loud Calls were made for col.

The leaders of that party Here also took the pains to go around and extend personal invitations to a Large number of republicans to come out and hear this eloquent orator ? expound the truth a indeed it was to be a regular old fashioned democratic class meeting such a one As had not been witnessed in this City for years. They were so enthusiastic Over Trenor that several appointments were made tor him in this county.

Has it reached that Point that a great political party like t e demo cratic one has to resort to Hie saloons and slums for their speakers.

This agreement was carried out and this morning the dispatch extra was issued containing the charge that one of our county 01-fictals furnished the Money to get Trenor drunk. This charge of the dispatch we denounce As a most infamous falsehood and defy them to the proof. What county official furnished Money w by done to you name him out ? republicans Are getting tired of the Slan Derous charges uttered by the dispatch. The editors of tile dispatch knew that they lied when they made this assertion. To prove that what we say is True and that Trenor was drunk when he arrived Here we submit the following interviews with reputable citizens in an interview with Charles b Houser who was present at the depot when Trenor arrived he informs us that w Hen Trenor got off tile train he w As in an intoxicated condition and that he at once went Over to the Eagle Saloon across from the depot.

The undersigned for themselves pronounce the above charges and insinuations monstrous and wicked falsehoods and we defy the editors of that paper to the proof. Had the editors of the dispatch been Content to denounce the Drunken Vagabond sent Here by the democracy to insult our people they would have had our sympathy As Well As that of All other decent people but when they pretend to denounce him and then try to break the Force of All they say by falsely slandering our own citizens and thus attempt an apology for him we Are compelled to allow them to share the contempt and disgust that we feel for him j.
