We wire called oii buitets here b? England. but, thank Ood, we were a glo r oov set of filibusters who established the American go vernment with democratic republican prlnotplet. And to due lime we will e tabliah the same principles la Men r?gua ond lbs same form of government. And bessuse It was established on democratic prlnolptes Kngiand hai bsckcd np the four different governments in Central America: and they are now trying to cruah Walker, wltti bis latthfol little bind ot followers, the name aathey would crush the United States ir they had It In their power. (Enlbuslssttc cheers.) By what mean* did Eag land scqidre her isst possessions all over the globe How catno she to get possession of the P*st Indlee? Hlis sent commcrclal agenta there?lor what purpoacf Not to esiai'liio trade and commerce between them. No. t> quarrel with the uatlvea. and when thev sought a pre test for a quarrel without just cauae, the English soldier > ?ent in and took away their homes and enslaved then. And (Ley are not called filibusters! I recollect that Queen Victona 01 tiered a day of thankrgivlng and prayer for the victories of hor armies in the Kastern countrtas. That p?es< nted a cuilous spectacle, too?praytrg to the Lord (Iaugbltr.) The English were putting up prayer* and tbankselvioga lor the victories of their arms in India, while the poor Indians were praying to Ood to relieve I bom trom the English. (Bear, hear.) That li true, my frleads. Every litolllgBut man remorabers U very well. The toor Indian was defeuncless, with no means of fight ing, with one man holding up hli gun and the other fellow touching it o!T with a match. (Largh ler.) Why. the English were very brave on that occasion. I'o do th> m credit?to speak the honest sent.miLts of n.y b- art?1 would say that the Eng Hah tie a nation of brave soldiers, as far as courage goes; but u filibusters they ?re worse than we are. That la only a single instance or Fog Hah Ullbustsrlsns, and X only want to show you Ihe distinction between us When our people go down on the borders of our owu coast to establish a transit roots, ana to establish a go vercaent like our own, we are called filibusters and robbtia. and ret the English can come across the ocoaa, jet tbe Mi?-qulU> King?a little dumb foundered n eg roe? and pet tin up, and hold the whole territory?and they are calltd bonnet men. (Cheers ) They say we are olahonest, ana want to.take away the lands ot those pes pie. I wonder how they got these lands? All over the earth thtre la not a solHa-y space worth having that the Ki.plish have not filibustered the nations out of a par don ot them; and then they come bone and pray Ood and thank him that thty were successful. I do not know whttber tho Lord heard their prayers or not. If be d'd I do cot understand tuo Bible oorrectly, that Is all. (Laughter./ Now, It is curious that tho Ergllsb gov-jj anient, which has wrettel trom the nations otihe earth peri ions of their territory, and who has robbed them and enslaved them, should call ns robbers, who t %rrr bave enslaved any nation we have coaquered. In all tha territory gained by the United .^tatee the wboia people enjoy ths same law, the fame privileges, the ta ie ? protection as the Amencsn people do; and they always have done it. Wbo ran sals&ay 11? Except in Kansas, 1 believe. They sbr lekod so much there before the election that now thsrs Is no; a tounry shrltk to be heard from anybody In Kansas. Now, my 'rlends, I have sot a single solitary iiitcrsat in th't matter no more than you have. I have a feeling and sympathy with all my fellow oountrymen there who are blruggltng for iiborty and egaiast tour or five dllerent governnionta, backed by English bayonets, English oannon and Esgllsh provender, ir you touon an Englahsoan anywhere, the English gov ernment goes right In to proteot him I like toe Eegll h government on that account. I wUh our own were to assume the same position. (Bear.) Wehavehat unoQ jad irg citi/ess of our country murdered in Paaaaa, in Uraaa da, and In some other pieces, the d< tails of wblohldo aot r< collect j net at this time. But I do roojliect one thing? that when I read the account of haiplec* women end children being murdered by the semi barbarians In that owatry, It made my blood ran cold, aad I felt as 1! I could bave raised my arm? If I bad been present 1 would have dene it?lor Uieir reecue, or to avenge them. I aay It devolves rm our government to legislate In that matter; whether that la in eenrse ot process or not, I am not taformed. But my feeling as an American cltlz?n is that they shoe id rioelve protection. It Is the buslnsss of the people of New York to oome up and give the material aid. Ihey want lood ami clothing. That Is ths material aid tte) want. 0*1 lent friends of ours from New York are thtre atiivlnf to implant our democratic principles; aad should we "fuse a pittance to them?to men who arc striving to plaat American Institutions ta a govarainent which is favorable to usf Shall we refuselaeee supplier I Inst not.

(Hear, hear ) I do not care wba^learaed diplomats may saf or specu late. They may my that It la not proper at this time, that It Is nd a matter ef policy, l oiisy t when your brother le starving to death I 1 repudiate policy. I do set behave It Is right.

(Laughter.) Do I aay, right or wroeg, 1 aland by Walker, let tke government do what It llkee. (Applause ) How. fellow cttiseae, I did aot meaa whoa I get up to eey much about tha queetioa el aiL My object was krst to laduoe the atKsaa of New York to send eome aid to eur suflrrtag toon try men. No matter waether they are citizens or not, ihey are brethren ta the beert, and we, aa mea, are bound to give taess succor. (Cheers.) Ton cannot txpeti la ia in American cituaa. Be Is there in heart aad rou: an Amencan citron ao In prlictple se In fie'ing, and therefore ae mea having eympatbiee with our race aad with thoee wbo are struggling for freedom we are boa ad to *ive them aid Without questioning the pro priety cf it. I would slay a man who had my father or mother down beeung them and 1 would not a?k whether they wire right or wroag. I would kill him first end then arbitrate the matter afterwards.
