A BATTLING MEETING.
AND A FOKKTA8TB UFA LIVELY CAM
PAIGN. Speecbes by J. C. McAIarney, of Harrlsburp,
HDd Edgar 91. Levan, et Reading.
The Democratic meeting advertised te
be beld at the Central headquarters last
evening, came off according te announce
ment, save that the immensity of the
throng which assembled completely pre
cluded the holding of it in any less space
than the square.
About 7:43 p. m. the Eighth ward club,
mere than 150 strong, marched down from
the "hill" andwere seen joined at the
headquarters by representatives from the
inside wards who had gathered there. At
Schiller hall the Sixth Ward Americas
club, consolidated, held a business meeting
and elected Cel. Edw. McGovern president
and It. II. Brubakcr treasurer, and all the
former vice presidents, sccrctaiics and
ether officers of the former two clubs
corresponding officers of the consolidated
club, Gee. W. Zcchcr, It. H. Brubakcr
and Geerge B. Willson were appointed a
committee ou finauce and equipments.
The meeting then adjourned and the mem
bers of the Hancock Legien, who were pres
ent, denned their white linen hats, badges
and canes, and forming in line, accompanied
the club te the street, where they were met
by the Ninth ward club, headed by Krcider's
drum crops, and the whole precession
moved te the square.
It was seen found impracticable te held
the meeting in the Mishler court, owing te
the large audience, and the speakers' stand
was carried out into the square and located
at the southeast corner of the monument,
when the glee club, composed of about a
dozen singers, under the leadership of Gee.
Pentz, sang a stirring political ballad,
which was greeted with cheers, and Mr.
Ilensel introduced Jes. C. McAIarney, esq.,
of Harrisburg, as the first speaker of the
Mr. McAIarney, who is a member of the
Dauphin county bar and was oue of the
counsel for the prosecution of the riot bill
bribers, opened with a reference te the
prevailing enthusiasm in the party which
is a certain augur of victory. The spirit
displayed te-night animates Democrats
everywhere this year and is certain te be
crowned with victory. He entered upon a
rigorous and scathing review of Garfield
as a public official, analyzing his connec
tion with the Credit Mebilicr business, bis
evasion, his perjury, his condemnation by
a committee of his own party and by Re
publican newspapers throughout the land.
His complications in the De Geylcr bribery
case were quite as bad if net worse. It
was manifest that he was paid a $5,000 fee
te secure his influence for a worthless job
and that it was only as chairman of the
committee en appropriations that he was
retained. This was legally established in
a suit in which Emery Sterrs, who was
brought te Philadelphia lately te speak
for him, was counsel. On protection and
the tariff Garfield's course is evasive and
one of duplicity. He has two faces, and
though at heart a frce trader has net the
manliness te avow his convictions new and
lets his supporters proclaim the recent
discovery that he is a tariff man. In short
he is a trimmer, though he docs net seem
te have the sense te even trim successfully
Turning te Hancock the speaker exhib
ited in glowing colors his civil and mili
tary record. Nature had marked him with
a handsome face and figure, but his actions
did net belie his leeks. He was as geed
as he was geed looking. His letter te
Sherman, his Peace letter, order Ne. 40,
his letter of acceptance, and ether state
papers, mark the ripe publisist, the pro
found student of our institutions and of
fundamental questions. As a soldier he
wen and was entitled te his country's grat
itude, and it will say te him: "Ge
The fight of the people te-day is against
thieves in entrenched power in Harrisburg
and Washington. Our state had been
shamed by the legislative bribery attend
ing and attempted in the riot less bill. The
chief offenders were convicted and sen
tenced te prison, thanks te the indomita
ble courage of that gallant young Repub
lican, Charles S.Welfe, whose name should
be a household word in the common
wealth. The jail doers bad hardly closed
en them until they were pardoned in vio
lation of all rules and decency by a Repub
lican pardon beard. They pardoned Eem
ble, but they refused te pardon a boy sent
te jail for six months for stealing a
The chief clamor against the Democracy
of te-day is from renegades like Cessna,
who was trying te get the Democratic
nomination for governor when Hancock
was fighting the battles of his country.
At the conclusion of his exhaustive, com
prehensive speech of nearly an hour, Mr.
McAIarney predicted a sweeping victory in
Indiaua, and reaching from one end of the
land te the ether. He was heartily cheered.
A Bey Frem Old Berks.
The glee club then sang another song
which was rapturously applauded, and Mr.
Stcinmctz in a few well chosen remarks
introduced Edgar M. Lcvan, esq., a repres
entative of the Jcficrsenian Democracy of
Mr. Levan, a rising young lawyer of the
Reading bar, who was the second highest
candidate for district attorney at the late
county convention, opened with an elo
quent reference te the prevailing popular
enthusiasm for the Democratic nominees
and predicted that the wave of popular
revolution sweeping the country would
carry the Republican party forever out of
sight. Fer that party is a party of exped
iency, temporizing and evanescent. The
Democratic is the the only truly national
party, founded in the necessities of our iusti
tut ions and continuing amid all vicissitudes
against the opposition alike of Federalists,
Whigs, Silver Grays, Weely Heads, Knew
Nothings and Republicans. The Demo
cratic party went down in I860, because it
probably ought te have gonedewn ; it will
corae up this year because the needs of
the country will restore it te power. The
Seuth believed they were right because
the government was technically a union,
net a nation. The Webstcrian idea pre
vailed and no man seeks te reopen or set
aside the verdict of the war. The Demo Deme Demo
cratie party has done all it could de te
make this plain in the nomination of Han
cock, but he and it meet with the same
abuse as when the Democracy nominated
McClellan, the great soldier in 1864, the
spotless statesman Seymour in 1868, then
old time opponent Greeley in 1872, or the
great ring breaker in 1876.
The Democratic party believes in states
rights, but only in such rights as the con
stitutien says were net surrendered bytne
states te the general government. It does
net believe in wiping out state lines and
destroying home rule. It does net believe
in a paternal government nor in the des
truction of local self-government. When
either the cetrifugal or centripetal forces
assert themselves unduly, disaster ensues.
The rebellion was an excess of centrifugal
power, the measures of reconstruction
tended toward the ether extreme. The
predominance of the centripetal will lead
te monarchy or oligarchy. The only pro
tection against this is Democracy.
And this idea will win. The Democracy
arc te be rc-intrustcd with power. The
revolution may reach every New England
state save Vermont, and that state an
enthusiastic Republican had bet a Miller
ite that the Lord would net "carry" when
He came in His fullness.
Amid memories of Gettysburg Mr.
Lcvan bade the townspeople of the gallant
fallen Reynolds remember the conduct of
Hancock en that tragic day when Pickett's
forces made their wild charge and yet the
day was saved because of Hancock's splen
did example before his men. Gettysburg
numbered 3S per cent, of all engaged in
its casualties, while Gravclette, Europe's
bloodiest battle-field, numbered only 18
per cent. Of the three great heroes of the
day Hancock alene survives, and te him
the grateful people of eastern Pennsylva
nia would net deny the new honors which
are te be heaped upon him.
The people of the country are for the
Democratic party because it is the party
of the natieli and net a sectional ene. It
believes the people of this country are of
one bleed, ene tongue, one birth aud one
idea. They want no separation of senti
ment nor of interest any mere than they
wanted a separation of the states, and for
that reason they are going te have a re
united country under an honest party with
the heroic soldier, the far-sighted states
men, as its head.
Mr. Lcvan' s spirited and eloquent ad
dress evoked hearty applause, and at its
conclusion he was greeted with rounds of
cheers. The glee club sang another song,
after which Gee. Pentz gave the boys one
of his own, and when he was done there
was a very large crowd present eager te
hear mera. W. U. Henscl, esq., made a
short speech, and the meeting adjourned
te the club rooms, where another was
hastily extemporized. The Glee club kept
en singing, Jehn A. Ceylc, esq., made a
speech, and at a late hour and amid many
demonstrations of enthusiasm the meeting

The Portrait Painter of Buchanan and
In 185G W. E. McMastcr visited this
city and painted a portrait of Hen. James
Buchanan, then the Democratic candidate
for president. New he is at Governer's
Island, New Yerk, painting Hancock's
portrait, aud in a letter of interesting rem
iniscences te Colonel Ferney, he says:
Just twenty-four years age I visited
Wheatland, near Laucastcr, in Pennsylva
nia, aud spent a month at the rural home
of the last Democratic president, painting
the portrait of James Buchanan. Artists
who are houeicd with the companionship
of great men are apt te recall these gen
ial hours as the halcyon period of
their professional lives. But my stay at
Wheatland was net confined exclusively
te the "sittings" of Mr. Buchanan. Miss
Harriet Lane, his accomplished niece, pre
sided ever his household, as she had when
her uncle represented this country at the
court of St. James.
I new recall with pleasure these golden
days of my life, aud theso which followed
through the succeeding four years ; when
this gifted Queen of American society,
dispensed the honors of the presidential
mansion at Washington. I can better new
than Idid then understand the charm of Miss
Lane's fascinating manners. She possessed
the power te please all equally, and when
I once asked her uncle the secret of this
rare accomplishment, Mr. Buchanan re
plied that she had been educated among
gentlemen ! The portrait progressed, and
glass of Madeira went round, and Buch
anan was elected.
Anether friend of the sage of Wheatland
comes vividly te my recollection. I refer
my dear sir, te you then in the early
prime of your talents and manhood ; the
favorite leader of a great party, and chair
man of the Democratic state central com
mittee of Pennsylvania in 1836. Your
visits te Wheatland were almost daily, and
there right under my eye, I saw you, the
energetic young war-horse of Democracy,
in consultation with our candidate ; plan
ning aud developing the canvass. Like a
heroic chieftain at the head of his column,
I saw you all along the line, in the thick
est of the fight. Like Hancock at Gettys
burg, always at the front when a decisive
blew was te be struck, te turn back the
invader, which you did in that canvass and
saved Pennsylvania from the Abolition and
Knew-Nothing cohorts who threatened
Many a time I heard Mr. Buchanan bear
testimony, as I have Governer Dickinsen
aud Mr. Jehn Yan Burcn, that " te Col
onel Ferney we were indebted for the
Democratic electoral vete of Pennsylva
nia." That fact has lest nothing with
years. We'rcgarded you then in the light
of the political son of Mr. Buchanan, who
had given him the best years of your life,
and new you come te the standard of Han
cock. Through the dim vista of theso twenty
four years, in which you and the writer
have been at times at political antipodes,
I ask myself, new that we again stand to
gether for the election of another distin
guished son of Pennsylvania, has the Prodi
gal returned, or have we gene te the Prodi
gal? Again it is my pleasure te enroll myself
in the canvass, and become the campaign
artist of General Hancock, and te work
with my best energies te secure his elec
tion. It was aglorieus reunion when I saw you
welcomed at Governer's Island, at the
time I was engaged upon my portrait of
the general, and I bear testimony that
your accession te Democratic ranks is
I hope I shall be forgiven for alluding te
you as the Prodigal. Yeu de net return
alone and dd get come back empty. Le
gions are flecking te our ranks. They
ceme as the winds come frce ! and from
all classes and conditions of our citizens.
Yeu ceme with a ripe experience and rich
in political law, as scholar, editor and ora
tor, te threw your talents into the scale
with tremendous and telling force.
Among the welcome visitors at Govcr Gevcr Govcr
erner's Island, none were mere welcome
than the old-time friend of Buchanan, the
successful leader of a campaign which
made a president,
LANCASTER, PA., SATURDAY,
Your graceful pen, which gives us in
your "Life of General Hanceck'rthce glori
ous sketches of the wives of our presidents
and tbe ladies who adorned society, adds
another jewel te your wealth in your
sketch of the gifted and accomplished
Mrs. Hancock, the wife of our distinguish
ed general. The Democratic party
proudly welcomes all te reunion in its
ranks who still cherish the indestructi
ble principles of its founders, Wash
ingten, Jeffersen and Jacksen. When
principj are sacrificed with men like
General Grant te make room for such a
Credit Mebilier harlequin as Garfield, we
readily cenceive why men like yourself
naturally cravitate te the ranks of Gen
eral Hancock. At Governer's Island, as at
Wheatland, I find the same union and har
meny of principle, and 1 find tbe same
Catherine together again of heroic and
conservative men. The nomination of
General Hancock is regarded in New Yerk
as the very best which could be made. It
has already healed all our political dissen
siens, and we feel as proud or our candi
date, ever at the sea-girt isle where we can
almost shake hands with him, as you, my
dear colonel, de down in Pennsylvania,
where you have the proud honor te claim
him by birthright.
The cycle of then and new draws te its
completion. Buchanan in 1836 and Han
cock in 1880 the last, and the next presi
dent Wheatland and Governer's Island
Colonel Ferney the friend of and sup
porter of both, giving his heroic services
new as then.
