CHAPTER S. 1 And it happened while the peoplo round about the village called Drakeville, were as sembled together, on the twenty-eighth of the seventh month, to renew their tempo ral strength, and become strong in the cause of Stephen Arnold, that all the people of Davis assembled at their own Temple. 2. Now at a Township called Union, the people met at their school house, nigh unto a store called Thomas's, to hear the sayings of Daniel the prophet, the dealer in dry goods, of the house of Tisdale. 3. And a goodly number 8. Then a mi­ nority. Mr. Pierpont says in conclusion "If Governor Hunt is determined to turn the Bell ond Everett, party into a nose of wax to serve the behests of jobbing politi cians, to secure the election of particular fa vorites, let him say so. The idea was first were present, of all tribes, and Daniel was acconi|anicd by Allen of the tribe of Bently, and tlu same did stand before them for five Dan id the prophet spake, and said—I am not use to a war of words, but, inasmuch, as am before you, I will demol ish the last of the camp of the Republicans, from out your midst. 9. Then for the space of three hours, did he gass, much to the delight of all, for this Daniel is a man of great parts, and comical, withall. 10. And he told how these Republicans were abolitionists at heart, how they were opposed to the fugitive slave law, and desired not to give rights to the men of the south, but were working a disolution of the Union. 11. Now the people thought these strange sayings, and that Daniel was jealous of them, thinking these men loved tbe niggers. 12. But so earnest was he in his manner, and so eloquent were his figures, so warm, and sympathetic his appeals, that they bore with him all the time that he stood up before them. 13. Then every man went to his own place, strongly convinced that much learning had made this man mad, and Ihey believed not the sayings against this party, called Republicans. 14. And Daniel, together with the was this man extalled, that the people throughout the land of Davis, said, surely there is something rotten about this, for Cyrus is no great speaker, but a poor expounder, and slow of speech. 5. And so great is the astonishment to this day, that they are wondering how such things can be, of a truth these people at Monterey must be a hardened set, and pos­ sessed with a very ignorent devil. 6. Now of the course of this man Cyrus, we know nothing farther, as he created no such excitement anywhere throughout the land, unto this day. 7. But James, tho son of Absalom, has been talking unto the people in many places, but so little argument does he present, that the people called Republicans, smiled much at his efforts. 8- Now this James does handle the eagle with strong hands, insomuch, that the peo ple fear they will be compelled to get to themselves a new bird of greater dimensions. 9. On several occasions did this man have the old bird up so high, that he became very dizzy, and scorched his feathers, by rubbing his feathers against the sun, called Sol. 10. And on one occasion, he laid the bill of this bird, on Canada—bade him flap his wings, and blow old England further from us, while his tail was fanning Cuba in as a State, with a large nigger representation. II. Now to this day is he a straddle the old bird, singing the tune of slavery with divine unction, and like Ilenry the Dsan, showing to the people, the christianizing ass-pects of this (God-forsaken) institution. 12. Oh citizens of Davis, why will ye be duped by this wicked party, called bob-tails leave not your homes, and follow after them, for, surely your country will be given to idolatry, and he people die of thirst in the wilderness. 13.

Since I last wrote to you, there has been, in this county and at Bright on, fifteen miles from this city, in Washing ton county, four large political meetings three Republican meetings and one Demo cratic. I was not at the meeting at Brighton on Thursday last, but learn that there were about one thousand persons in attendance. The meeting was addressed by Hon. Mr. Smith, of Maine, (Secretary of State,) and Hon. Jas. F. Wilson, of this city. The Washington Wide-Awakes were on hand, as I learn, and formed a torch light proces sion in the evening. On Tuesday eveninglast, Col. Curtis made his appcarance in this city, and was imme diately put down on the bills for a speech in the evening. Although but three hours no tice had been given, about four hundred persons attended the meeting, and listened attentively during his entire speech of hours. The Colonel's speech was thc best two I ever heard him make, and was well received, not only by Republicans, but by many Demo crats. His speech was very much unlike the speech of a more poli'ician he spoke not as a politician, but as a man desirous of representing the material interests of his constituency. He first took up the Home stead law, speaking i i favor of a bill that give homes to the homeless and lands to the landless," free of cost, and showed the benefits that would accrue to thc country and to the people from the passage of such a law. lie next took up the Pacific Rail road Bill for the passage of which he has la bored so zealously and incessantly during the four years that he has been our Repre sentative, showing the advantages of the great Central Route through Iowa over the route through Central America.
