TAMMANY TRIUMPHANT John Morrissey's Native Logic and Kelly's Naive Frankness. THE TRUTH ABOUT PRIMARIES. Speechei by Ex-Governor Seymour and Senator Kernan. The Opportunity for the Return of the Democracy to Power. ENTHUSIASTIC AUDITORS. L" tic a, April 27, 1876. At lout three out of four of those who go to repre sent the democracy of New York in the Convention at SC. Louis are men who fhvor the nomination oi Mr. Tilden for the Presidency. By the resolutions adopted to-day the delegation is instructed to act as a unit, Its course in spoclQo cases of doubt to be determined by the majority. No instruction is given as to candidates that will Justify the delegation in any course in that regard likely to mar the purily and harmony, but the name, tho record and the services ol Mr. Tilden are to be recalled to the memory ol the National Con vention. Such is a succinct statement of the grand result. In ?ther words, tho Convention has adopted, in the most literal way, every point oi the programme laid down lor it by the Hrrald, and baa taken tho wise and statesmanlike course. It is an evidence of the sagacity with which Mr. Tilden was served that bis agents here, though they wont a shade too far in their endoavor to manage the Convention, stopped before they bad made any flagrant misstep. Ir they were not as wise as they might havo been, at loast, like the oyster in the story, they did finally know when to shut up. There were more good heads, there was more general intelligence, moro logic and more fair, honest, upright purpose in tbls body than your cor respondent evor saw before in a convention In any State. Though if you consult the roll you will find a proportion ol the class of names that do not add to tho iue of deliberative bodies. It was noteworthy tbat ' these gentlemen kept themselves uncommonly "shady." DISCRKTIOX or TILDRX'S FBIRXDR. With a body ol this nature tbe services ol Mr. Tilden could not fail to receive duo attention, to be rated at their Just weight and to be duly considered on every appropriate occasion. It was, there lore, dangjroas to attempt to treat such a body as if Its Intelligence, Its convictions and its sense of propriety were of no oonsoqueoce and to instruct it that it should not use its discretion; that It was not wanted here tor its tbougnt or cxperlenco or Judgment, but only as a body or puppets to record tbe name or T ilden eighty-eight times in eighty-eight bal lots, as tho wires wsro pulled, no mmttsr what emer gency might arise. Fortunately for the Governor's chances his agents stopped short of this with proper discretion. It would have bcon all the better If this discretion had come to them earlier. Early in the day, indeed, It was Ireeiy declared, as tho result oi what was Known of conclusions reached in the manoeuvres and deliberations of tbe' night, that Tidon was beaten, but this was because it was assumed that he bad taken the extreme ground claimed as his doe by some injudicious advocates, ground demanding an instructed delegation. He wiA beaten. In so fbr as he held that ground, If it was ever taken witn his assent; but In no far an be oc cupied tho position designated by tho Hbsaui as the one be should properly occupy nis cause ia triumphant. KKrORMERM IX KARNKKT. At several points touched upon In tho activities of the paat night and In the proceedings of to-day the evident appearauco of too much management threat ened the bermouy of the occasion. It was in the name ol relorm that all the good elements ol the Con vention came, and thev were serious about it. Thoy didn't mean the kind of reform that people prnte about In a convention and laugb over on thoir way to their hotels; and because tboy woro earnest thoy were quite ready to revolt at any mana-uvros tending to commit tbe Convention to a programme that it was not disposed ot its own motion to onset. In their readiness to be indlg nant at all the forms of corruption they were quite prepared to include lu the text that torm of corruption ?o much favored by the democracy at some periods by which the ostensible proceedings of a convention are made a mere cover for tbe manuruvre and intrigue of two or three or a dozen leaders. It programmes, platforms, the choice of delegations and tbe decision oi important differences may sometimes be cut and dried in n corner by two or threo men and tben presented to a convention merely lor its formal rutm sation of decisions taken without Its assistenco. II a convention Is sometimes not a representative body of tho people deliberating on tboir case, but only a com mittee sent up to do the wil! of wire pullers, this is chrtaialy not the nature of those several things in this particular political crista COLLISIONS XARRUWLT RSCAFBD. It was the temper of this Convention that It wan no man's tool or dummy, and tho over seal of aome man agers several times had a narrow escape from collision with this sentiment. There were, lor instance, two phaaea of the State i Central Committee, a lad which was not pleasant. On j Wednesday, in n nearly lull committee, this body acted on several points. Today it was found tbat this ae- i tion bad been changed In tbe courso of tbe nigbt in ' several important particulars by the hocus-pocus process. Ia the declaration of the vote of the house the Chair AM not aland on any such a nicety as to how ?nay actually voted on either Hide, bnt decided lie case as auitod tbe purposes of those rhom he served. The Chair, authorized by the j rote ot tho house to appoint committees, tamed them from prepared lists and In one flagrant mse appointed a man who had been ruled out aa a con testant, lor the list had been prepared before tbe action was taken that ruled this man out. Those little un pleasant elreomstaacee were resented by the Conven tion, and the machine was discreetly mads less ap parent. ? nose krlly'h unrautmi. Tbe distribution of national delegate* throughout the jcven Congressional districts of New York eity has not given entire satisfaction. Those districts were tam pered with by dictation. It Is generally presumed that the Congressional districts In the metropolis havs satire charge or tbe naming of their represent* Uvea is national conventions, bat thin wan a mistake on ihw occasion. The finger of a bona ia apparent in manipulating tbe choice of each district. Far Instance, In tbe Sixth district* composed of the Seventh, Eleventh ami Thirteenth wards tfohn Fes Use been named, to gether with Sunset Cox. The ex-beoater wanted to ba sent to m. Lenta from the Fifth disinet. He tneonatered a vigorous eppssttten in the very ward where he resides from Nicholas M slier, who holde the regular Tammany organisation In that part of Mm city.

A dilemma km aroMo Kelly wttMi the company of Fox at the Na ttonal Convention, eo ho seat him as a delegate from the Sixth district, where he does not reside, and goes himself from the Fifth. The game will be still further appreciated when It Is ooaetdsfed that Mr. Kelly re sides la the Twenty-first ward, some three miles oot sule of the Fifth Cnesrisstnael district Mayor Wiefeham's ambition to sit la the Natloaal Democratic coaolave hps. also been satisfied. He will be oa head to posh Ms claims for the Vioe Presidency. It Is conceded by THdea's Meads that a early all of the delegates from New York Sitjr are opposed to hiss. ' TUB SBW VOBK SCRLBXAOS. Doubtless the lacldeat of the Goavention that was richest la picturesque elements was the Tammany and aaU-Tatumauy debato which occurred on too proposi tion to amend the report of the Committee oa Con tested Seats. By that report Tammany eras admitted and anti-Tammany that oat, sad a oountry member made a minority propoaitioa to admit both to the floor and divide the St Louis delsgatlou between tbem. Kelly, Uorrlssey and Sbafer spoke on this. Mr. Kelly naturally pat the case of Tammany at its beet, but be made the terrible admission that U was Impossible to have a (air primary election la New York; tbut they never were lair, and, consequently, that he and bis associates bad no moro right to places in the Convention than any other el Use a of the State. MoRitisssr's RrroRT. Mr. Morriasey spoke altb almost conversational ease and with a quietness ot style, a eelf-possessed dignity, earnestnes of purpose which altogether led the thought away from those defects that come especially under the criticism of the disciples ol Liadley Murray and Oould Brown. Indeed, his defects of style were integral ports, and almost necessary elements of his address. The peculiar shake of the head with which he spoke of Tammany, "They ain't got bo organisation I" enforced the statement irresistibly. On the point of creden tials he said:?"As to 'I am many and an tl-Tam many alike, they bring a lot of Da pert, but tho hall of tho credentials on both sides Is fraud." This sentence was worth all the reet of the Convention. Everybody knew its truth and everybody recognised the boldness and honesty of tho confession, which, perhaps, might be equally well made of two thirds of oil the credentials of this naturo that are to be found in the United State*. In answer to the cbargo that the anti-Tammany men had united with the repub licans to defeat the democratic ticket, Morriseey said, "Out of eight candidates sevon were democrats, and each and ovary one win by 25,000 majority." The uso of the word "win" where plain people say "won" was racy of those circles in which sport nukes IU own grammar. kelly's ooxvasaioa. Kelly thought well to reply to Morriasey, and in his words unconsciously established the truth of Mor rltsey's charge that there was no Tammany Hall as a political organisation; that it was "only a building and John Kolly." In that spirit in which he once told the people how he had labored to give tbem a good govern* meut he informed the Convention that ho was only in Tammany Hall himself In the hope to restore Its good name and to give the democrats of the State "a coad jutor they may feel proud of." THE PROCEEDINGS. Cm, N. Y., April 27, 1874 The Convention met at twenty ivo minutes pest nine A. M. Judge Morris, from the Committee on Contested Seats, submitted a report, with conclusion as already sent. The question was taken on agreeing to the report of tbo committee on each oase as read. That giving seats to the delegation, headed by Benjamin Ray, from Columbia county, was agreed to, with gpplauee. The report on the Onondaga case, giving the seats to tho delegation headed by X. F. Graves, was read. Mr. Corbett, of Onondaga, moved to amend the report and give the seats to the delegation heeded by Mr. Barker, and proceeded to stato the bets and circumstances In tbo case as set forth before the committee. Ho de nounced in bitter terms tbo manipulation of party managers by party machinery, and while proceeding in that strain the Chair said be was compelled to call him to order and warn him to conilne himself strictly to the quostiou before the Convention. Mr. Coaerrr proceeded, saying the democratic party could not afford to use such mat) tnery as he had re ferred to unfairly. At the conclusion of his remarks, on motion of Judge Tari'sx, of Westchester, the Convention adopted a rule confining members to live minutes each in speak ing. Judge Mourn then took the floor tn reply to Mr. Corbett, and said it was shown to the oommitlee that the Convention, so-called, electing the contesting del egation, was nothing more than n mob. The com. thiltee hesitated not a moment in deciding that the delegates headed by Mr. Graves were the regularly elected dologatca The qoostion was taken on Mr. Corlmtt's amendment and it was rejected. The report was then agreed to. The report In favor of the delegation headed by R. R Dodge, from Oswego, was adopted. Also that irom Westchester county, headed by Judge Tappan, was agreed to.

Tbe Cbalr stated the qucctlou to be on substituting this report for the report ut tbe committee Mr. Bkobli. took tbo linor sod sustained the proposi tion of tbe minority ei'sacH or joa* kki.lt. Mr. Jon.x Kelly, ot New York, roso to respond amid aaiortn of upi-innsc. He said:? 1 do not. Mr. Chairman, desire to take up the time of tlilr Convention; but tbe gentleman baa made some rem irks in relation to the cny ot New York w Inch I think xome one ot the regular delegates sitting in the Convention should reply to. He cays that some notion should bo taken by tbls Convention to regulate tbe aflutrs of the envoi New York. Tbu Convention of lwil part# i a resolution directing how tbe election In the city and county nt New York abottid be held. We havo loliowod ine direction of the Convention.

They refuse i u do it. The gentleman aaya Mint there ? gentlemen havo I wen kept out of tho regular organise tion lu New York. I say there m do perron desirous ot becoming a member of tho regular organization that t# prevented from doing to. (Applause.) But tor tho , last threo years, ever since that organlmtlon waa reor ganised under lis present rTphnr, there gen tleman have seen fit to come to tbe Convention, with tho exception of 1874, to contort oar seal a, and when the Convention rejected them they went back to tba city of New York and made a combination ' with the republican party to defeat ibo regular candi dates named by the democratic party. (Applaase.) Now he rays perhaps they will do tho same thing again. I hope not. I hope that tho better sense of tneir Judgment will control their action In the tntarev 1 Mr. Chairman, 1 am exceedingly anxtoua thai these men should come into Tammany Hall, but tall the : way to bring them into Tammany Hail by their forming a separate organisation and then making n combine- I tion with tbe republican party end asking aa to come i in nnder certain conditions? Ivrhap* tboee conditions would havo soma relation to the candidates who might be nominated by tho party. Now, I am against any such thing as thai. 1 want everything conducted fairly and honorably. 1 know'that there is every dMpontttun on tho part of tbe man with whom I am associated to I ho fair and llborul to those gentlemen. (Applause.) | Thev tall you we di-aire to keep them oat of Tammany Ball. Why in 1872, after tha adjournment of your State Convention, wa bald oat TU* OLIVE BRANCH to tbaaa people, and nuked tbani to come to Tammany Hall; but, unfortunately aa disgracefully to them selvai, they made then a combination with the repub lican party to defeat tha regular organ nation In the elty and county ot New York. Wo again, in 187S, offered to them the olive branch once more, and they positively relutcil to have any thing to do with it Now. will llio gentlemen tell me there la any disposition upon the part ot any inembor of Tammany Hall to exclude any gentleman who is de sirous to come into tbst organisation, provided ho will rink his chancos at t be primary elections with other gentlemen? Perhaps they will say there Is no lair play about these primary election*. Well, all 1 cau say la that tu the great city or Now York they are held al ways in thu usual way. Bui it is an utter Impossibility to hold primary elections in that city that would bo equitable and ffetr. 1 hare often tried to do It, and let mo say to the convention that In 1872 an eflort was made to rnako a registry in that conaty which would enable all tho voters to vote at the primary elections If they saw Ot to do so; but when they got to the polls designated for these elections and when they went In to ryglstsr their natnos they received tickets, and when they came out, dlfgracelnily to themselves, sold tho tickets to the par tics who were willing to buy them. Now, this Is the coudttion of things in New York. I un confident, Nr. Chairman, that we have done everything to retrieve the mloloriaues and errors of gentlemen wno formerly controlled that organisation. Mr. Chairman, in 1872 what was the condition of things In Tammauy Hall ? Why, the gentlemen who controlled that organization bad disgraced tbo party. Everywhere they brought upon you not only defeat, but disgraced themselves in this State. Well, myself and other gcntlemeu went into that organization to reform the condition of things us they existed then, and what do you find now? I think that you will admit the fact mat there la a better condition of things In tho city and county of New York than there was thee. In 1875 we uonnnatud one ol tbo best judiciary licketa that ever was presented to tbe people, and 1 never ? heard one word ol dissatisfaction expressed even by our opponents who made this combination with the | republican party. Yet, disgraceful to thoniselvca, they elected a gentleman the prosecuting attorney lor the city and county of New York who did, so lar as bt could do It In his official capacity, prevent a rain rxhrcisr or opinion In that county at the ballot box. Wo made ail the effort we could to correct those abuses, and we punished tho individuals who had committed them; but, with the exception ol two or three, the cases prescutsd by us i have not beeu tried at all, ultbough there were I nearly 300 indictments louml; and these gentle- j men with these facts before tbeut weut to [ the pulls and elected that man as the representative of j the |i?rty in tbe county. Now, will the gentleman tell I mo that, with this stalo of facts. It is not necessary I that you soould here. In this Convention, sustain the I regular party organisation? If you were to adopt the I minority report yon can see that you would place tbe ! two parties iu the city of Now York, both claiming to | be regular, and coming here In the usual way, claiming ' tnoir seats?you would demorultze tbo state of things | there to such an oxtont thai, 1 will now say to tho < Convention, you wonld lose thousauds of votes by It. i And lot me say in couolusloo that. It onr opponent* I will look upon thla matter us tbsy ought to, and com* ' Into tbe regular organization and support the candl- | dates that may tie nominated by that organization, there la no disposition whatever to xoep them out. There was a fair cbanco for ibem to ooiue in last fall, and they refused to do it. Cut of 880 men coiui*>-ong that committee there wore at least 250 men who belonged to their organization who came luto the regular organisation. We will he only too glad If they will do the same thing. I am afraid that there are other motives which actuate these men. 1 am alraid that their opposition arises from the luct of these nom inations that are made tor that large city. I hope it Is not so. 1 do not wish to say anything personal to them, to say anything In this Convention that will make any member feel for a moment that we wonld act toward these people illiberally. In concluaton, 1 hope they will return to tbe organization. I hop# they will return to the party to which they claim and owe allegiance, that we may ail go hand in band with the democratic flag above our heads (applause) and victory may perch upon our banner from one end ol this Union to the other. (Applause). UK. moukisskt's remarks. Mr. Morrwskv, of New York, arose amid a storm of applsuse to reply to Mr. Kelly. Mr. Chairman anu Ukxti.mmkx or thk Convxntiox :? I did not intend, when I came into this Convention, to have anything to say on this subject. In fact, 1 did Dot think I had any right, ss both are contesting; but tbe gentleman has made some remarks wntcli you, as members ot this Convention, should understand. He says, In the first place, theso people ivft Tammany Hall; that they Invited them to join that organisation. I say for one that is not so. No later than a year ago this gontloman, with his associates, got togsther and turned six or seven Awembly districts out or tho organisation, who were elected by the people In their respective districts. They did it by neople who did not live in too districts; they did It by a committee of two, who wore willing to do what the leaders ol Tammany Hall asked of It. and that is the causo of thla opposition here to aay. Why, Mr. Chairman, 1 came here last year from luy Assem bly district, sent hero by an Assembly committee elected lor 1876; I went before the committee as regu larly as any gentleman in the Convention; the result was that they decided against me. 'Jnw, the (act la that Tammany Hall is controlled by tbe ludivldnal who Juei sat down bore, and by no one els*. (Applause.) It is all very well lor him to come here to this Convention with hit plausible story and tell you they want all (ietnoorals. They do it they will do as he says, but if i they do not do aa he says they turn Ibem out tn the < street Now, Mr. Chairman, 1 do not propose to stand that dictation trom htm nor anybody else. (Applause,) ; He speaks about A COMBINATION WITH BEPCBLICANS. I dsny it, sir. We nominated alter we went home last yoar without spy recognition from the State Con vention or Tammany Hall. We made a fusion ticket There were eight candidates on that ticket: seven of them were democrats, and each ol them won by 25,000. Now, I ask this gentleman who lias just sat down If seven out of eight were not domoerata ? I aak him to answer me that question. Mr. Krllv?I will answer tho gentleman, with the permission of thel'bair. 1 know nothing about th*ir political aUnltit-H. with the ezception of two. Two of them ware republicans; the others, I do not think, had aay political recoro in New York, so far as I know. Mr. Momrissrt?Now. Mr. Chairman, ho admits that six ot them were democrats, according to his own statement. (Applause.) I do not want to rome Into ; this Convention; 1 do not want to go to st. Loots: I am not Bghting for that; 1 am lighting lor what is right be tween man and man, and nothing else. (Applause.) I ; tell yon, gentlemon, they have no organization They j have come here aud they have handed you s list of i papers. The whole of the delegates on both siaes uro a fraud. (Laughter.) Now, Mr. Chuirman. 1 can show you credentials which were given by Tammany Hall where the primary election waa purported to be held at a brown stone front in tbe city of New j York. Tbe idea of primary elections being held 1 in ' gentlemen's bouses. Theso are credentials wo have from Tammany Had When 1 say that I ask them to deny It, and they cannot do It. I am going to tell yon as near as 1 can tbs facta I aiu not talking to get into tbis Convention. I do not want to g*t here. All the other gentleman wunia is to gel hero flrst, and tbt-n go to St. Iajuis to beat somebody. 1 aou l wrnt it. Now Now, 50.000 or 55.000 people in the city of Now York wish to bo democrats it you wjjl permit j them to be. It lies with tbis Convention whether they will be or not. If they want to be, let us see the result, loist lull wo came here ss winners; they won nothing.

Mr. Snarta, of New York?The admission ol Mr. ; Kelly that It is Impossible in New York to have a fair and just primary is, in ray Judgment, an admissiou which addresses Itself with great lorce to every ink-Mi Ent member ot thie Convention. He says, holding, aa does, the machinery of Tammany Hall In his bunds, tbnt even be cannot give to the democrats ol Now York n lulr primary election. If that Is so within tlie walls of Tammany Hall I would like to luqaire what chance a man has who la not recognized within tb? wails ol (hat Sucre. 1 political institution ?

Now. these goutlemnu have made It uppenr to the Convention that 1 dictate everything In Tammany Hall; and, lor aome unexplained reaaon to myself and my friend*. that story has been carried from one part of the State to the other. Now, air, I disclaim doing anything of the kind. Tho gentleman that he has aaeertad that he wan turned out of Tammany Hall with Ave additional dmtrici delegations. Well, air, we have rules which govern our organisation, the same, perhaps, that govern most of tlio organizations of this Stale. Tbul gentleman, In a spirit of indignity lor some disappointment ot his own. instigated a meeting that was held in Cooper Institute, where a large number of laborers tnet who were dissatisfied with the action taken by the municipal government of New York in reducing their wuges. That gentleman was one of the party whe contributed toward the meeting to denounce the Tammany llail or ganization, of whieh bo himself was u member. Now let me usk the Convention, huw- la It possible for ua to preserve tho entirety of our organization ir tho mem bers in it become rebellious and resort to tbe same action as Ibis gontlomnn did t If you were to believe tbe stories told to you by Mr. Sbafcr you would con ceive, no doubt, that I had some great motive In cou troiliug this organization. Now I have no mollvo; I have xo personal dkhikk of my own. 1 remain tu that organization with these gentlemen by my side to build It up Irotu tbe dirt it had been bedraggled in by them. (Applause.) 1 huve spent four and u half yoars of my tune; I have given to the organisation ot that party that amount ol labor, and lbavo spent thousand* of dollars, and this is the first tirno, with tbe exception of la-t evening, that ever 1 mado such an admission personal to tuyscir. It is time, however, that the people of the State should un derstand my position. 1 am In Tammany Hall lor tho purpose ol building It up and'glvlng to you. gentlemen, a coadjutor which will ho reputable sod that you will be proud of, and I have no other reason. Now, they make a great ado abonl tho large number of votes they polled In tho recent fall eleotion. Why, thia same combination was beaten in 187V by 27.1100 votes by tho Tauimany Hall organisation, lu another combination where two candidates ran for the Mayoralty wc elected our candidate by over 11,000 majority. Hut this very cause, this labor cause, which wo bad not suytliing to do with, and which only had relation to those employed by the municipal government, but tho effect of which permeated all tho workshops of New York, and I am told by some of tho gentlemen living in the western part of the .State that it also atlectod them. They took charge of It. It was disastrous to us. It was no political reason, and I promise this Convention?and 1 know perlccil.v well what 1 am talking about?that this very combination, If mado again, will be bontcu iu New York by tho Tam many Hall organisation by at least 25,OOu. (Applause.) THK IlKClSIOMS. The previous question wu* then moved and ordered.

Mr. DonsnxixBR offered the following, which was adoptod :?

Mr. PaoKiiAU, ot Albany, offered tho following, which was adopted:? Resolved, That the temporary chairman bo and ha Is hereby aatborliod to appoint a committee of two members from each judicial district to report the permanent officers ot tbia Convention. D.

Mr. LimjuoHS raid a very Important duty is to do voive upon title committee, and alter relcrring to thu precedenth moved that the committee rousist of one Irom each Congretalonal district instead of two from each Judicial district. Mr. Flower, ol Jefferson county, sccouded Mr. Lit tlejohn's motion. Mr. Wssu. of Clinton, said the precedents were io favor of two Irom each judicial district, and he could tee no go<>d reason to change it. He then proceeded 10 Stale the duttea of the committee, and said tlto smaller cooiMiiicu could net better and moro harmoniously than the larger one. Mr. Littlkjohx called attention to the fact that the last Convention had but 128 members, and this one haa three times that number. Hence he wanted the committee increased. Besides, he insisted, It wastho duty of the democratic party to come down as noar to the people as possible. Mr. Maookw said that this was a question for the Stste al large, and he believed that sixteen men eould discharge this duty better than a larger number. Judge Millkk moved (o add to Mr. Maguno's resolu tion the following, which was accepted:? But In all eases wbsrs the delegates Irom ths several Con Bsslenal districts ha.a, by a majority vote, agreed upon niratea to Hi. Lonls, each delegates shall be reported by thia Coareolloa.

The Choir then Introduced Horatio Seymour, Who i was received with three cheers, waving of hats and ' handkerchiefs, and screams ol delight. Quiet being restorod, Mr. Ssyuouu proceeded to ad- i dress the Convention, receiving rouuds of applause. ; He said:?It Is now tin re than ton veurs hi mi-peace was rostored to our Und alter a bloody war. It lell us then worn out und woakeued by thu contest. Our land - was tilled by many green graves; thero was mourning In our homes. Yet, In the midst of all that sudncss, > there has been displayed virtues by the American peo ple that made us proud and lifted us up iu the estima tion of the uations of the world. Never before had wo stood so high in the opinion ol uienol other places, or in tho opiulous of governments unlike ours, und wo looked forward with ho|iu to the tuiurc to close the wounds that war hod made. Wo looked forth with couhdeneu lor renewed prosperity. Ten years have rolled uround, and wo Und our country more depressed than it bus ever bcou in Its history; more care und anxiety In Its tlelds, in its workshops and In Its business circles. Why Is this ? Nor is this all. During the last ten years the course of political even's bas been such that to-day it is a day ol shame und sorrow to those who love their country, and who loves its glory and Its estimation in the eyes of the world. (Applauso.) 1'eaco has brought to ua moro that has made us sad and sor rowful, more that has been hurtful to our national character, moro that has suppressed honest labor und ibwurted tho Interests of those who attempted to build up our national prosperity than ever war did with all its sull'erings. It needs n sull'erings. It needs no spirit ol prophecy to tell what tho futuro historian, when he tells the events of the |last fifteen or twenty years ol oar country, will dwell upon when he comes to this jierlod; bo will warn all nations that a people may live against armed rebel lion. It will teach the lesson that lorco cannot dostroy a government when It Is strong In the altoctions ol ? people, and It will toaoh I lie other great lesson that corruption in relrrence to public virtuo and greed lor gold will destroy tho.->c institutions that were pow erful to resist all outward pressuro and all belltgercut at nick a Now, 1 do not stand here iu this hour ol our shamo and disgrace In many respects, this last year of { a century of our existence, to speak to you In > mere , partisan spirit I admit that iho difficulties which uow I surround us have grown out of a lack or VlttTm on tho part of the wuolc American people. I admit j that wo huvo lost sight, without regard to mcro party I distinctions, ol those virtues which did ubouud when I our iuatilulions wore lormed, and whou we started out ] iu our great aud glorious caiecr, which has made us so 1 powerful among the nutious ol the earth. Wnile 1 ' will, therefore, say to our republican friends that a | part of the blauie rests upon us us It does upon them, i yet another thing is made true by all this, aud that is j that abuses and corruption have come because we have lost sight ut tue principles of those who formed our government. (Applause.) Tho na tional Treasury would not buve bcou robbed II a false national fccliug had not opened Uio doors of that Treasury to scbamcs tin t wcro uuconsti j tuiiou/il aud that ware averse lu the very genius uud ! spirit of our Institutions. (Applause.) The great les son that we are leuruiug now is not that one party is superior to another in its morality. We aro all but j human and ruay fall by leuiptaitou. The groat lesson that w<> arc learuiug from this condition of our country 1 Is that I bat party that upiiolds right and principle; , that party tuut closes tho boor of the treasury against corruption; mat party that Insists that the govern ment shall keep itself within rigbtful bounds, is the ouly party Ihsl cen safely be trusted. (Applause.) We do not say to you, my republican friends, tbat you did not lovo your country, wo do not wish here to sav one word that shall reflect upon any class of the American people. Hut we do implore you. in view ol the present couditiou ol our eouuiry, to consider why It Is that this snaiue has been brought upon It?be cause you havo forsaken the wisdom of your fathers: because you have overstepped your constitutional rights; because you have brought this government Into acnou which did not rightfully belong to it, aud iu so dotug not ouly corrupt yourselves, but you corrupt us as well. What is tho question of tho day and what are we to meat r What briugs this usseuiblago here, comprised, as I see It is, of mou moro ibau ordinarily tboughliul, at this time 1 Why have there been, salt la aaid by our opponents, less ol mat Irivolousnesa of smrii that ts aouietlines stiown upon such occasions.
