reign capacity an electors in tho
elections which havo been hold dur
ing tho last twculy-flvo yonrj,
but until tho present week, It win never

Western Pennsylvrtiilanaallhough I rep-
won tod you in oonimon with your fel-

MR. IIUCKALKW'S MIS-1ION.
And now, gentlemen of tlio Wost, I
'conio nniong you wllh a entiio, I eomo
among you with a purpose, each of
which, in iny judgment, recommends
my mission. Appltuuo. It U now
many years slnco complaints very loud
wero mudo concerning tho action of tho
government of Iho stato In its legisla
tive and oxecutivo departments. You
havoheard theso complaints, and somo
of you luivo joined in making tlieni,
i'ho press of this city lias given them,
a3 il were, wings, and sent thorn abroad
through tho wholo west ; complaints
that legislation was not Just and hon
orable ; that It was perverted from
publio lo pilvato objects upon many oc-
unions ; that iometimes oven the Integ
rity of men who rcprusotit tho freemen
Pennsylvania In tho sonitto and
houso of representatives was not tin-
Theso complaints woro not limited lo
tho legislature. You havo heard them
concerning several of (ho heads of exe
cutive departments. You havo been
told and told by your own press that
stato treasurers havo been chosen in im
proper ways and by tho uso of Improp
er Influonces. You havo boon told that
(he public moneys of the commonwealth
lmvo not always been applied or used
for public purposes ; that thoy havo
somelimes, nt lea3t, boon diverted in
their uso to purposes of prlvato profit
and gain. You havo been told that tho
department whoto tho public accounts
of tho stato oro settled has not been
managed with ability and has not been
frco from reproach, and theso com-
ilaints havo oven been eomctini03 di
rected against Iho chief offlcer in tho
oxceiitlyo branch of tlio govern
Till; CiUESTION Ol' THE YEAR.
Nusv tho quo-itlon of this yoar U not
much whether theso complaints
were well founded, woro mado upon
good cauo, fur with roferenco to llioso
luestions there can bo but ono answer.
Tho ovideneo which has bedii submitted
to tlio people and which Is familiar to
all intelligent mombers of our political
society is decisive. Theso complaints
wero just. Tlio management of affairs
in tlio government of our stato has boon
wrong, and tho proper question for us
to-night Is this : Is it not high tlino to
amend what is wrong, and to take to
ourselves securities for tlio future.
Impressed with this conviction lu
common with others, I aeeoplod tho
nomination from tho Reading conven
tion for tho oflleo of governor of this
commonwealth. A voleo, "You will
bo elected, loo," nnd opplauso. A gon"
tleman who I ain gladwto sou Is hero
wlllt us this evening also nccopted from
that convention u nomination for tlio
post of audltor-gonoral of tho common
wealth, nud lo our hands win commit
ted by that convention tho bannor of
rofonu, and wo wero told lo boar It aloft
proudly and unilinclilngly lu tho faco
of all opposition in tho contest.
Ari'IlECIATINQ THE SITUATION.
Wo comprehend somewhat tho duty
that was charged upon us. Wo know
that tlio men whom it was our purpose,
and, wo thought, tho purposo of tlio
peoplo to dislotigo from tlio places o
public power would incotus In this c.m
vass with no fair argument ; with no
tist means of opposition, lull that wo
wero to confront bitter and unjust
abuse. Wo know that wo wero to moot
In this contest thouso of most unscru
pulous means, tho importation of votes
from abroad, tho purchase of votns
within thoslalo and beyond this, even
tho miscounting of voles after they
should bo given. Applause.
But gentlemen wo undertnko this
task, and we nro beforo you and beforo
your fellow-t'lllzens throughout tho
commonwealth asking your confidence,
your friendly aid and support lu (ho
undertaking upon which we havo en
tered ; not because it is at all important
that tee should till tho particular olllco
for which wo havo been nominated.
There aro plonty of other men with ad-
mlrablo qualifications (o uudertako tho
duties of thoso offices in our common
wealth, Thoro oro plonty who would
bo willing, and If (ho opportunity pre
sented itself, anxious, to till them.
Thcro aro persons already holding them
who would bo content to loturn to them.
Wocomo boforo you discussing no per
sonal question, tlio claims of no man or
men to llielr publio positions. Wo
como to you and wo ask your aid and
assistance, your friendly support, bo-
caiiso wo boliovo In tlio dopths of our
hearts that tlio Interests of this com
monwealth, mid tho honor of our state,
demands a cliaugo in Its government.
It Is proposed by tho frlonds of reform
not merely democrats or liberal ro-
publliana, but by independent citizens
gonerally, who may bociassotl under tho
general head of reformers in this stato
eontist It Is proposed by tho reformers
of this Mato that tho audltor-goucral's

It Is propiftd to tal.o tho -duto tretis

liaud.i ofono who Is billovcd (and (hero
isovidonco (o establish If) to lmvo used

Instead of publio purposes and objects.

I repeat what I said boforo, that I
shall not go over the details by which
tho charges of misconduct against pub
lic oilleors of this stnto aro shown. That
is being done, nnd It lias to a great ox
lent already boon done, by tho public

THE LANCASTER HI'Er.CII.
I passfrom remarks upon this sub
ject to spoak of matters somowhat moro
personal. Somellmo ulnco (o direct
charges made by (ho chairman of (ho
political organization opposed to us, I
took occasion in Iho city of Lancas
ter, to an nudionco of most Intelligent
gentlemen, lo respond, and lo givo lo
that nudionco, and through thu
press to Iho jiublic, Iho fuels in regard
lo certain parts or my record in publio
life, and I do not propose to repeat
what was thou said in detail, hero or
elsewhere. Most or you, doubtless,
havo read what was stated by mo upon
that ociitsion that from tho tlmo I
look my seat lu tho senalo of thu Unit
ed States, on tho -1th or March, 1803,
until tho close of tlio war, in April,
1803, I supported every appropria

That during tlio s imo limo I voted for
or supported overy bill and every pro
position which looked to tho increaso of
tho pay of our soldiers in tho army,

applause. That in regard to colored
troops, who, under an act passed lu
1802, before I was a member of ton
gross, woro paid only $10 a month, al
though 1 was opposed, along with many
others, to Iho policy of employing so
great a number as was proposed in 1S01,
amountiut; to u quarter of u million,
supposing it improvident lo tnko so
many undisciplined persons and quar
ter them upon tho treasury, yot, us ro-
g.irded (hose who woro employed and
actually in tho government scrvico, I
assisted lu funning Iho report of tlio
cejmmitteo on couferenco upon tho army

they wero paid from that dato full r.-.tcs,
and albo allowed liberally for past ser
vices which thoy had roudered to tlio
government, droat applause
PAYING SOLDIERS IN GOLD.
This was in answer to tlio falsehood
that I had voted against paying tho
troops, white or black. This record was
published, and sinco then all I havo
heard about it is a now chargo not that
I voted against paying tho soldiers, but
that I voted for paying them too much!
laughter becauso on ono occasion I
voted for an amendment which was of
fered when tho pay of tho soldiers was
$1.3 a month, Ihut thoy should bo paid
in gold. Cries of "bully I" and np
plauso. Wcll.l mipposo It is hardly
worth while to defend mysolf against an
accusallouof tliat kind. (Uiii'sof "no!"
"no !" and cheers I.
WHO WAS MOST WORTHY?
inoti, tho bankersand tho foroigucapltal
ists in tho war who woro our creditors,
in gold, their interest on our bonds all
through tho war, at tho end of
tho war you will remember, con
gicss passed of its own motion, of
its own accord, without any legal neces
sity uiion il to do so, a icsofutlon that
they should bo ultimately paid in gold
tho wholo principal of tlto loans. That
was dime for them; aud really 1 think
that tho most ni 'ritonous class of
eiedilors which tho government of tbo
United States had during tho war wero
tho soldiers, repealed cheers who gave
tho government credit from month to
month for their wages, and who might
leasunably claim from Iho government
tlio same kind of pay, tho samo treat
ment wldi-li was given lo other credit
ors of the .United Ktates. Increased
chceriiii;. With gold averaging say
1C0, their pay wii3 loss than twenty dol
lars a month In paper money. To bo
Btiro gold kited up at ono limo to near
ly 200, but It was ono of thoio stock-
gambling operations upon which no
permanent legislation could bo based.
At nil ovents, with referonco to this
particular accusation, I think I may
venture to say that If Stomo's good re
cording angel shall carry that sin up to
bo recorded in tlio great record-book,
ho will perhaps, In charity, drop a tear
upon tho pago and blot It out forovcr.
In short, I havo stood up ovor twenty
years in public scrvico in this stato, and
In tho government of tho United States,
and thoro is tho record ns public as miy

THE MI L1C IN THE COCOANUT.
Thoy dhcourso upon this subject with
tlio obvious purpose of drawing olT pub
lic attention from tliolruo issues of the
canvass, and directing dobutc to matterj
wholly Irrelevant and misleading, In
point ol fact, thcro was no Insurrection
In Columbia county, In 1801, nor any
resistance, uctual or attempted, to tho
execution of tlio laws of tho United
States, and although that county was
occupied by troops their presence there
was entirely unnecessary and unjustifi
able. Now, oneo fornll.I shall stato a fow
leading fads which will dlsposo of this
Irrelevant topic, nnd rofutolhu calum

tlvo county, (ban whom (here aro nouo
moro orderly nnd law abiding within
the limits of tlio commonwealth. But
in tho first placo permit inn n few words
a3 lo my own relation, cr nbsenco of ro
lntlon, wllh llioso troubles of 1801.
WHAT GEN. COUCH HAD TO DO WITH
I was absent from homo at Washing
ton from Iho beginning of December
1803, lo about Iho end of July 1861, con
gross having adjourned on tlio fourth of
tho latter month. Shortly after my re
turn I was waited upon at my residence
by General Couch, who was thou In
command Of tho department of tho
Susquehanna, with his headquarters at
Chambcrsbtirg. IIo informed mo of tho
toports which had nnuho.l him in re
gard to ro-ilslanco to Iho draft at tho
Uppir end of Columbia county, and of
an aliened combination to prevent its
cnT'irci'mont. I answered that I had no
InTurmnti'in upon tho nubj ct beyond
rumors; that I thought Iho facts had
been exaggerated, and proposed to him
that wo should obtain a eonvoyanco and
visit tho section of tho county whero tlio
disorders wero said to exist; that al
though I had intended to leavotho
following morning on a journey ,1 would
postpone it nnd accompany him. IIo
excused himself from accepting this
proposition on tho ground of want of
time, but nt his request I accompanied
him Into tlio town of Bloomsburg,
half a mile distant, whero wo saw other
persons, and further con forred togeth
er. IIo proposed to send word to Iho
drafted men and their friends, that if
tlio former wouUI report within a rea
sonable time, ail proceedings against
them would bo droppcd,and I recom
mended that Col. Ereezo, register aud
rocordorlof tho county.should bo request
ed to convoy Ibis information and nd
viso tho drafted men, as far as ho could
reach them directly or through their
neighbors, to report. Tills proposition
was nettled upon, and Clonoral Couch
gavo a written communication to Col
onel Freeze, containing tho subslanco
of Ills proposition In regard to thu draft
ed men. That communication was dated
August 1G, ISO 1, and has boon in print
for sovon or eight years. Col. Freeze,
though roluctaut to uudertako this
mission, nt my urgent request, mado In
conjunction with Mr. Paxton, a lead
ing republican buslnass man of (ho
town, was indueod lo go, and did go
upon this mission. I left homo tho next
morning with my wife upon tho Jour
ney contemplated, and ubsolutoly,what
I have mentioned is all tho connection
I over had wllh or relation to tho trou
bles In Columbia county and Its occupa
tion by troops prior to Uio arrest of citi
zens, which look placo :il tho end of Au
gust. In a letter to mo from Ooneral Couch,
dated at ClmmberHbug, tho 29th of Sop
lombcr, ISfll, and which lias been in
print for years, ho alludes to tho foro
going transaction in tho following
"I was very glad to receive your loi
ter recollecting with pleasuro our Inter.
view In August last and the assistance
you extended mo at that limo."
NOllODY' HURT AFTER ALL.
That concludes all, aud perhaps moro
than Is necessary, In regard to my per
soual connection with tho difllcultiosof
1801. But, in vindication of tho citizens
of my county, i will ndd : that no oflleor
of tho United States, civil or military.
was over opposed, resisted, threatened
or even insulted in Columbia county :
that tho number of non-reporting draft
cd men thcro was not unusual as com
pared with otiier sections, and that tho
preti-nsei upon which tho county was
occupied by troops wero wholly ground
less. ThoEo pretenses wero that thoro
was an actual insurrection, tho
Insurgents occupying fortification
tlons with cannon ami with armed men
to defend them ; and next, (though a
subsequent pretext) thatsecretsoeiotics
wero organized and existed there, tho
members of which woro sworn to rosist
tho draft, Thoso reports constituted tlio
excuse of the military authorities
for sending troops to tho county, but
they wero completely exposed afterward
and shown to havo no foundation In
fact. Fhst tlio preten?o of fortifications
and armed defenders of thorn was ex
ploded by a military examination of the
region lu question, whilo iho protenso
of sccrot societies to oppo.io tho draft
was thoroughly disproved upon a full
trial beforo a military commission nt
