SPEECH of JOHN SCOTT, Esq.,
At a Meeting in the Court Rouse, Fri
day Evening, Sept. 18th, 1808.
REBOUTED BY ROBERT MCDIVITT, BSQ.
Mr. Scott, on rising to address the
mooting, was for some minutes unable
to proceed, owing to the enthusiastic
and oft repeated demonstrations of ap
plause with which ho was greeted by
He commenced by contrasting the
circumstances under which the issues
of this campaign are discussed, with
those of the campaign of 1864. In
'64 Horatio Seymour was President of
the Chicago Convention, and with him
wore Bigler of Pa., Vallandighum, of
Ohio, and others, who doolared in their
platform that four yours of war had re
sulted in a failure to restore the Union,
and that the war should cease. They
further charged that the Government
had broken and violated the Constitu
tion iu ovory part—in other words, tho
Chicago platform, construetod by Soy
mour and others, was a declaration of
war against the Government, and of
peace with the rebels who wore trying
to destroy it. While those men were
engaged in forming that platform,
Wade Hampton was waving his sword
at the head of the "Hampton Legion,"
and perhaps charging the "Boys in
Blue," destroying as many as possible
of those who wore there in deform() of
the Government. Buckner, tho man
Grant informed that ho would move
ou his works at Donelson, was also do
ing what he could to destroy the Gov
ernment. Preston was soaking to se
cure the influence of the Courts of
Europe against us. Here we had Sey
mour, Bigler, and Vallandighant on
the one side, and Buoknor, Preston,
and Wade Hampton on the other side,
all co-operating for the purpose of di
viding the party having control of the
Government, and the Government it
self, while Gen. Grant was fighting the
battles of the Wilderness; Hartrauft,
after his grand achievement on the
bloody field of Antietam, was engaged
is the tronehes about Richmond, and
Campbell was guarding the line of the
Baltimore & Ohio Railroad to prevent
the rebels of the South from burning
your home and mine. flow in 1868
Seymour, Bigler and Vullaudighatn
wore again in a Democratic Conven
tion, as actors, or as moving spirits, to
engineer its nomination and platform.
Pendleton, if not there, had his escort
there. We saw theta going there but
not coming back. [Laughtor and ap
plause.] The same men who wore
against Grant in 1861 are against him
now. The same men who then sont
the "Boys iu Bldo" homo to be buried,
Hampton and Buckner, and the men
who joined hands with them in the
North, are joining hands now in oppo-
Efition to Gon. Grant. 7u 1804 the
Democrats of the North said every
measure taken by the Government
was unconstitutional, and thus sought
to eripp'e its energies while the rebels
in the field were denying tho right of
the Government to oxort its control
When the Democratic party of Lim
North, and Lho rebel element of the
South caws together, could anything
else come of it than what did Y Ono
plank of tho platform attacking tho
finances of the Government, and the
other attacking tho power of the Gov.
eminent to govern the Southern States;
this was Wade Hampton's platform,
the result of a coalition of the two ele
ments North and South. Sherman
knocked the bottom out of one plank
of the old platform, at Atlanta, while
the elections in Vermont and Maine,
knocked the balance into splinters that
wore used to light up the bonfires of
freedom from Maine to California.
Shortly after the Now York platform
was adopted Wade IT.arapton made a
speech at Baltimore in which it was
asserted that the rebels, by the success
of that platform, would gain• what they
had lost, but by and by came the Ver
mont, followed by the Maine election,
and the entire platform is pretty near
in splinters now, the last contest of the
Democratic party North, allied with
the rebels South.
In the -Chicago Convention, there
were some rebels, such as Brown, of
Georgia, but the difference is that they
wore repentant rebels l If the whole
South, Wade liampton and all, could
get together in ono groat camp-meet
ing, and sing tho first two Torsos of
that familiar hymn, "Show pity Lord,
oh Lord forgive," wo would join them
in such a love-feast as was never wit
nessed; wo would kill the fatted calf
in earnest, and some of us would go in
for tho music and dancing.
The national debt was spoken of as
a groat grievance; the debt and taxes.
How could it be otherwise, after tho
war? But the men who made the re
bellion were responsible for the debt.
In 1860 we wore just recovering from
the financial crisis of 1857, during
which thorn were in Ponnsylvanis. 560
failures,involving money to the amount
of 24 millions: The rebellion came in
1861, and there occurred during that
year, 570 failures, involving money.to
the amount of 24 millions; the act of
the Rebel Government of . that year
confiscated 300 millions owing from
the South to tho North, of which the
proportion of Pennsylvania was about
32 millions. During the war the
Northern States took from the produc
tive industry of their population over
two millions of men, who became not
only consumers but destroyers of pro
duce, and is it not ono of tho most mar
yolous things ovorshown by the world's
history, that wo are able to go on with
the ordinary industrial pursuits of the
country, in such a way that there is no
distress or want, bdt on the contrary,
work plenty, at good wages. ' Before
the Administration of Buchanau closed,
10 millions of a loan was offered by the
TERMS, $2,00 a year in advance.
Secretary of the Treasury, and only 7
millions wore taken at 11 per cent.
afterward 5 millions more wore put in
market and only ono half of it takon
at 85 cents on tho dollar. During the
terrible campaigns of 180 and 18G1,
the same men now making clamor
about the debt, wore trying to induce
the people not to touch the bonds of
the Government, and saying that it
would require a cord of greenbacks to
buy a cord of wood. Taking all thoso
things togothor it WAS a God's mercy
that tho country did not sink into
bankruptcy and ruin the nest day af
tor the war closed.
The issue of the dobt is not now before
the country. The first of the debt
matures in 1801,.the nest in 1882.---;
That is the time the Government
bound itself to pay, although obtained
in five or ton years. These bonds are
issued by the Government for the pur
pose of raising money to carry on the
war, the interest of some of them pay
able in gold, and the principal and in
terest of others. The right to borrow
money is given by the Constitution.—
They raise the quarrel now, long be
fore the bonds are duo; whether wo
shall pay them in gold or greenbacks,
when we have net got either. The
law limits the issue of greenbacks to
400 millions, and no . morocau be issued
without another act of Congress;
we havo not the gold, and the legal
tenders aro not issued, and it would
trouble the arithmetic of these men to
pay $2,500,000,000, of bonds with $lOO,-
000 of greenbacks. Tho Democratic
platform says, where the law does not
say they are payable in gold they should
be paid in lawful money of tbo United
States. What is the lawful money of
the United States ? According to De
mooratio doctrine enunciated by Sun
set Cox, at Brooklyn, it is the money
that chinks. llere then the Demo
cratic platform. proposes to pay all
those bonds in gold. Judge Wood
ward, ho said, was placed in a position
in that Convention from which none
of hie friends would be able to extri
cate him from the blot upon his politi
cal reputation, having declared, when
a candidate for Governor, that the le
gal tenders, issued by the Government
wore not lawful money, and no man
was bound to take them for a debt,and
now that the bonds should be paid in
the same currency ho had pronounced
unlawful. Pondleton and Vallandig
ham declared in Congress that they
had no power to issue greenbacks; the
Democratic party said that the green
backs were issued in violation of the
Constitution; this was their whole
cry during the war, and now in order
to issue greenbacks enough to take up
these bonds, the party must do the
same thing it has boon decrying all
the time. They are thus proposing to
pay off bonds, which they made pay
able in gold, by giving notes which
they say the Government has no pow
er to issue at all, thus getting rid of
all the claims of the widows and or
phans of our docoasod soldiers, and of
the entire national debt by the issue
of an uuconstitutional currency.
Wo say'pay these bonds when they
become due, and whon Grant and Col
fax take the Presidential and Vico
Prosidential chairs, as they will, thou
will follow a career of ponce and pros
pority that will make the greenbacks
by that timo as good as gold.
Upon this financial question wo are
in as much danger of war as upon the
question of reconstruction. Wo had
during the war ono hundred million
dollars worth of property destroyed
by the Alabama—commanded by the
pirate Semmes, who lighted up the
ocean with the flames of our burning
merchantmen, and who is now an ar
dent, supporter of Seymour and Blair,
and against Grant—for which wo have
boon presenting our claims to England,
and which will be paid. We have
millions of bonds in the hands of the
German people, and if a democratic
administration should over take up
the obligations of our Government to
them by giving them an irredeemable
promise to pay, would not the Prus
sian Government bo as justifiable in
protecting the rights of its citizens as
we aro ours ;.and if a democratic ad
ministration should undertake to carry
out this idea there would be just as
much danger of Prussia taking that
ground as there is now from the ques
tion of reconstruction; and more, be
cause we have the rebels a little near
er to home, and the same men have
been once whipped by

It has been said that the poor man
pays tho rich man's taxes. Is that
true ? and if so, where, and bow ?
You all pay taxes, and whero dons the
poor man pay the taxes of the rich
Man ? What State tax do you pay on
real estate ? None. A Republican
Legislature took off the taxes from
real estate and imposed it upon rail
road and telegraph companies, bank
stock, &a. The poor - man surely does
not pay the rich man'S taxes. Como
down to the county tax, and what do
you pay on there 7 Real estate, mon
ey 'at interest, &c. Are not the poor
man and rich man taxed according to
their property In tho borough taxes
the poor man and rich man are' taxed on
the property they own, and pay alike.
Now, whore does the poor man pay the
rich man's taxes ? Tho national taxes
are imposed on whisky,potroleum,man
ufacturod articles, incomes, &a., not the
necessaries of life, and those' taxes 'aro
imposed alike.' They say the poor
man is taxed for all ho cats and wears.
Is not the rich man too ? They say
the bonds aro not taxed. The income
of the bongs, all over a thousand dol
lars, is taxed. They say the bond
holder pays no local tax. The United
States imposes thifi upon the interzst
of the bonds, but they say they ghotird
pay State taxes too. Now, the power
does not exist to impose State tax on

New York Convention that knew it.
If the men who are clamoring for this
in our county do not know it they
ought to bo ashamed to confess It.
What do these men propose to do ?
The fourth plank in their platform
proposes equal taxation of every spa-
cies of property, &e.; that is they pro
pose to begin at , the ground and ta;
every man for every dollar he has,
and yet they toll you the poor man
pays the rich man's taxes. This Porn . -
ocratic platform proposes to tax poor
houses, churches, school houses, and
every other property, according to its
value. It is liko the decree issued by
Augustus Ctesar to tax the whole
world. They say the bonds locked titi
in the national bunks ought to pay
tax. They aro paying three per cent.
to the State and General Governmont.
How do they propose to - tax the Uni
ted States bonds by the State? Hvery
man of common sense can see that it
is not in the power of a State Govern
ment to tax the national bonds. We
had a Constitutional Amendment pro.
viding that our debt should be paid,
and that tho rebel debt should not;
and while on its passage every Deno=
crat voted against its adoption, air}
the moment the Legislature of BOMQ
of the States that had adopted it
changed they wiped out that amend:
mont, saying that our debt should not
be paid and the rebel debt should._
Put in the hands of such a Legislature
as that the power to tax the property
of the General Government and they
would soon do so to such an extent as
to blot out tho whole.
Judge Woodward must surely hang

decisions of the Supremo Court of the
United States, and one in the Supreme
Court of our own State against ta;ini
United States securities or the salarieS
of United States officers, and yet in
the face of all this they are clamoring,
because there is no State tax on Gov
ernment bonds. How much road tax;
and school tax do these United States
bonds pay, they say. How do yen'
propose to get your school tax and
road tax from them, over six decisions
of the United States Supremo Court,

By applying your own doctrine to
your own platform, it is a cheat and ti
lie, and you can make nothing else out,
of it. If any man can reconcile it
with good morals let him do it. The
United States according to a clause in
the Constitution, has made a contract
with its bondholder that they will not
permit State or local taxation, and yet
you want tho Government to violate
that contract and that clause - of the
Constitution. This is like the subter:
fuges resorted to in the rebellion, and
is bound to go down with the rebellion.
The rebels and the Democratic par
ty say the Southern States are entitled
to immediate restoration, and that the
Government has no power to impose
upon them any conditions. They say
the war made no difference in their
status. We say no; your rebellioq
authorized us to impose terms beforo
you come back again, and upon that po
sition we intend to stand and triumph:
