God's children by irraco thev must ro-
ccivo an additional supply of tho Inllu
onco of God's HoIyHplrlt operating In
tneir nouns mm lives, nun lecti upon
tho strong meat of tho word : nnd they
must bo admitted to this privilege by
tho laying on of hands of thoso whom
Uod had appointed. This Is it plain
So when tho npostlcs which wcro nt
Jerusnlcm heard that theso Samaritans
had recolved tho word of (Jod by the
preaching of l'hlllp, and had been bap
tised by him, " they sent unto thorn
l'etcr nnd John ; who when they wcro
cotno down, prayed for thorn, nnd laid
their hands on tliciu, nnd they received
tho Holy ahost."
Since then, my friends, wo ncccpt tho
Scriptures ns God's word, nml our in
fallible guide, nnd they tell us that our
Savior taught Ills disciples concerning
all tilings pertaining to Ills Church
during tho forty days Ho sojourned

And what do they say concerning
Confirmation; wo havo heard what tho
Scrlpturo says j what do theso men say?
Tertullian, who lived loss than eighty
years after tho npostlo John, says:
ner ti ijiimii, we'll iie iiiyiuir V7. vj riiiiuii,

Klftv years later. Cyprian traces back
Confirmation to tho apostles, and refer
ring to tlio caso of tlio Samaritans wliich
wo huvo cited Iu tho text, says :
"This is still the custom among us.
They who nro baptized in tho church,
are presented to tho presiding officers
of tlio church, that by our prayers and
thelaying on of hands, they may recclvo
tho Holy Ghoat, and bu perfected with
tho seal of tho Lord." And near tho
snuio time. Jeroino says: "This Is tho
custom of tlio churches ; in tho caso of
biicli asnro o.ipuzed niarou in llio lesser
towns by tho priests and deacons, the
Jlishop travels out to them to lay hands
upon them for the invoking of the Holy
ixptrti." 2mi it is a wen established
fact, my friends, that for jlteen hundred
years, tins was the ut.iform custom of
tlio church, which Is, of Itself, a sulll

of Its authority and utility.
But wo havo other witnesses to sum

iratlons to bo considered as an archi
tect of public sentiment; yet, whilo I
entertain tho profoundest respect for
tlio opinion of tiioso who may differ.
witii moon tiusas upon oiherqucstions
must bo permitted to say that my
poor capacity can discern in it nothing
but disaster, should it becomo tho doc
trlno of tho Domocracy that theso
amendments nro In fact n part of tho
Constitution, uover to ho disturbod.
Wo cannot ulford, after having denoun
ced them so long and so truthfully, ns
frauds and outrages upon tho people,
fraught with tlio elements of certain
destruction of our form of government,
turn nround now nnd plcdgo tho
faith of tho party to their acceptnnco
and their execution. Nor, In my hum-
do Judgment, Is such n courso necessary
to success, oven if It has como to that
extremity Hint party triumph can ho
obtained only by nn abandonment of
somo political principle. Tho grcnt
heart of tho American pcoplo does not
endorso theso amendments.
Tho doctrine of tlio Kiftceth Amend
men t was repudiated by tho Uadlcal
party itself, in tho very Convention
that nominated General Grant, when
It declared, In tho second resolution of
its platform, that tho question of suff
rage, especially in tho loynl States,
rightfully belonged exclusively to tho
peoplo of tho sovernl States. Thoy
dared not go into tho canvass upon tho
coutrnry principle, for wherever tho
question of negro suffrage had been
submitted to tlio direct voto of tho peo
plu in nny of tho "loyal States," It hnd
met with an overwhelming nnd crush
lug repudiation. Missouri, bound and
manacled as shy was, voted It down by
over thirty llvo thousand majority
MIehigau voted it down by over twenty
thousand majority j 'Wisconsin by over
thirty thousand, nud Ohio by over
thousand, liven bleeding Kansas ro
pudititcd It by n majority of over soven
thousand. Nor is lids nil. With tho
principles involved in theso amend
ments its llio leading Issues between
parties, IhcfVDeinoeracy, with a little
over forty members In tho lower Houso
of tho fortieth Congress, increased Iter
representation in tho forty-second Con
gress to ono hundred and three, with
other Slides ccrtnln lo givo Democratic
majorities yot to vote. Tho simo ratio
of gain would Imvoglvon us tho forty-
third Congress ns well ns tho electoral
college, by an overwhelming majority.

triumph, why wo should abandon tho

Is utterly .beyond my powers of com

strategy entirely too deep for my con

constructing n platform upon which

Qrent laughter. I repeat, I nm not a

should consider myself unworthy cither
of your contldonco or respect If 1 failed
to speak to you, as I hnvo on this occas

earnestly upon this question. Ap-
I may be mistake, but my opinion is
that tho proud old party I hnvo loved
so long will never depart from tho
land-marks of her ancient faith. Ap

havo nn nblding faith "that Kentucky,

In overy contest for tho supremacy of

Descending from an ancestory who
mado their homes in tho proud old
Commonwealth, when it was indeed
"tho dark and bloody ground," with
tho scalping knlfo and tomahawk
gleaning around them, and taught by
them from my earliest youth to rever
ence, with moro than filial piety, oil
tho traditions of her chivalry und her
glory, I can ask for her no prouder eu
logy from tho pen of history than that,
as sho was tho first to clearly and dis
tinctly define tho rights of herself and
her sister sovereignties, sho went down
In tho Vortex of centralization with her
glorious colors proudly flying. Orcat
Without recapltulntlng tho long cata
loguo of usurpations, outrages nnd

which has marked tho careerof llio Usd

tho grand results of its ten years of ad
ministration may bo summed up ns fol
lows: Tiio utter nnd absolute overthrow
of our system of Federal Government,
through pretended amendments to tho
Constitution, procured by forco anil
fraud ; and the Introduction into tho

Groat laughter and applause.
In conclusion, my fellow-citizens, per

Perhaps for centuries to come, should
