Col. Wm. Brown r- of Frankfort,
Kentucky, a delegate Ito the Tamma
ny Convention, Olen ilately Made a
speech in which he exposes the move
ment to make Mt. Chase the Demo
cratic nominee for the Presidency.
Of, this Col. Broi • n we know nothing
except what his exkessions reveal,
801 this is all 1 against him. His
speech proves many things, and none
more aonclusivelY than. Col. Brown's
propensity for di c rty (scheming. He
lauds Mr. Chase for a Worthless nom
ination, forgettin#. that to secure this
the Chief Justice, tampered with the
Senate to continue in power a man
whose-policy of boar Pug rebels and'
frowning upon loyalty causes the
death of thousanfls annually who in
their simple faith! trusted Mr. Chase
above all other m i en.' It shows furth
er that the moral laws ate enduring,
and that Mr. Chalk after paying the ,
price of his treaeheri, failed to re
ceive the reward" and by betraying
the party Which trusted him he has
lost .the esteem of both enemies aid
friends. 1 . 1
I i
Our chief regret in referring to
Mri Chase is that he, has fallen to
that condition when ahuse is flattery
Hie assumed vii!tuesi no longer in
spike respect, no; can his vices at
trait attention. 7'he dervices he may
have rendered have Wen obliterated
by , his shameful ablandonment of
those principles iwhisih shed on his
native all the lustre it enjoyed. He
is a heartless, cold, calculating, am
bitious demagog* ; and for the
Presidency woulit sell his soul as
freely as he has sold hie fame. • If he
has one trait which distinguishes him
abOve all others it ishyp ocrisy ; and
he le best descr i bed en we char
acterize him as a frau
.. I
little the Detnecratio rank
.and file had to doh with the choice of
SeYmour a how completely his nomi
nation depended 1 on !trickery, and
how 'shamefully • the (misses . of, the
party were _ ignored in i the " arrange
ments " which this speech exposes,.
we 'will leave Coli. Brown to tell in
his own words. We beg especial at
tention to the little : 4 iarrangement "
by which Gen. Hancock was betray
ed t 1 • ' i
To retrace myi path a little. I
wish to call your atten4on to the fact
that, &dm the time thei"Chase move
ment" assumed ehape, there were
two factions in tbe Democratic par-
V. 1 One was progressive, and was
composed mainly i of Eastern Demo
(Rats and business men of the cotton
States, but it 'ad ;more or less
strength in every tate in the Union,
embracing, as it id, i nearly all the
Getman element f the Democratic
party. The other was reactionary,
and composed malinlyi of those Reb
els who are still uniepentant, who
leatined nothing, by the sad experi
ence of the war, 'and- of the great
mass of Western Democrats who
supported Mr. PeOleten. -
cu. AHE. t
The progressiowsta met in coun
cil that night, Itiwaa arranged who
shofild nominate Mri, Chase, who
ehonld second it,' what States were
to Vote for him ou the , first ballot,
andi what should he said on the occa
sion of bringing his !name formally
befOre Om Convention. A most for
midable-strength was ; developed, and
every circumstance tvas auspicious
for naccess. But iit 'as considered
best to have a ballot or two next
'Eing, before the nomination was
made, so as to kill off the Apparent
strength of General Hancock and
satisfy his' friendiu that there was no
hope for him. It. was 'known that
the vote he received from, this State
would he withdrawn the next morn
as well as the scattering votes
from several other ;States. '. . New

signed by nearly every German edi
itor then inNew York city, asking for
the nomination of Mr..Ohase,,should
be read to th e ' Convention .by
Seymour as its , presiding_ officer, he
having previously declined to.nomi.i
pate Mr. Chase himself, on the ground'
that - be- was the President of the
Convention ; but. I have been told by
a gentleman noir-living in • New
Vork city, and whose veracity I have
no reason to question, that on the
morning of July 9, a short time be
fore the Convention met,- Mr. Sey
our read to him from the menu
ficript a very chaste,neat little speech
which he said he. would deliver to
the Convention when Mr. Chase's
name was brought before it, and he
believes Mr. Seymour had that speech
in his pocket when he was nomina•
ted. .
Relying on Air. Seymour and the
New York delegation the progres
sionista met in the Convention on the
morning of July 9, full of hope in
the success of their plan. But, a
counter movement. had been going
on. I was told in Cincinnati, the
other day, by a prominent Democrat,
that only six members of the Ohio
delegation were made privy, to 'the
nomination of Mr. Seymour. , This
was the game.
These men determined, with the
aid of the Southern rebels, toecap-
tare Horatio Seymour from the Rro
gressionists, and, nominate him,
knowing that this would so demoral
ize that faction as to give them ab
solute control of the Convention, and
that not a voice would be raised
when they brought forward their
own man for the Vice Presidency,
tolto had already been agreed on by the
readionina: It was the most success
ful movement ever made in this coun
try in a National Convention, but it
was a forlorn hope. Any moral
courage on Mr. Seymour's part would
have covered 'the reactionists with
overwhelming defeat.
Bat they knew • well their man.--
Ohio led off. Mr Seymour rose to
his feet. The stillness of death filled
the great hall. There; on that bright
July morning, in the midst of that
vast mass of humanity, in the com
mercial metropolis of the nation and
of his own State, to which the eyes
of forty millions •of people were
turned that day, Mr. Seymour, trem
bling with , excitement , and filled with
fear stood and pleaded for his char
acter. It was a piteous sight. The
poor man told of his promises ; that
when be had refused the use of his
name he meant it, and that now his
honor foibade it. Think of this my .
hearers. He stood thera t and pleaded
for his " honor." I. believe he felt
what he said, for to say that, under
the circumstances, ho was guilty of
preconeerted treachery, would be to
say that by his aide Judas
and John Wilkes Booth had lost the
lustre of their . infamy.
When he had finished his appeal
he was boldly told that, after what
occurred, his honor was now safe in
the hands of the ,reactionista. Ohio
returned to the charge,- the rebels
throughout the hall raised the same
wild and savage yell with which
Hainpton and Forrest had so often
charged the soldiers of the Union.- 7
It was too much for Mr... Seymour.-
'Braver men than lie had quailed be
fore-the battle cry ;:he hesitated, he
yielded, and ,then fled ignominiously
from the scene. '
All was now over. The' demorali
zation of the progressionists was
complete, and the Rebels had it their
own way. Hence, an unpardoned
Rebel soldier could rise to his feel and
propose the name of Francis P. Blair,
Jr., the very prince of revolutionists,
as the Vice President .of the nation

from their friendship many a man •

The commercial firmness and pru
dence the sagacity and stamina of
the great business community, trad
ing, financiering and . manufacturing,
has been exhibited. War, being an
,condition, disturbs all busi
ness relations. A continued state
of hostilities makes the exceptional
condition to the rule, so that the ad
vent of peace, disturbing business
contracts, is often even more .disas
trona to trade and 'industry . than the
beginning of war bad been. Through
all this we have passed. There cer
tainly have been failures and com

returns of labor and capital have
been as good as during any other

rob us of the Sabbath, and turn it in
to a day of commerce and play: and
in it'is registered the name of every
unrepentant Rebel who lifted his
hawk to destroy . the Government,
and caused that war in which fell
hundreds of our brave Welsh.
They promite that when the Demo
crats shall come to power the taxes
will be diminished. But the history
of that party when in power,' does
not justify the promise of economy,
and the system they advocate gives
no ihope of financial .improvement.
They, speak of paying the national
debt in "greenbacks" instead of gold.
By this the value of the currency
would be greatly reduced; the wheels
of commerce - would be blocked, the
country wouldlall into national pov
erty, and its prosperity-and develop.
ment would be greatly retarded.
This is in short, our unanimous,
conscientious opin on; and, while we
concede to others the same liberty of
opinion which we claim ourselves,
we advise you one and all, as fellow
countrymen to vote for Grant and
Colfax. An di we heartily desire that
each Welsh voter in the United
States should do the same.

.0 :; Hartranft and the Copperheads.
The copperheads are using the old
cry of "stop thief'} with the hope of
covering. up their extortions upon
the State treaury. Gen. Hartanft,
having refused to pay some of their
frau4nient claims, has consequently
called down upon his bead the anath
emas of their pauperized newspapers
and the curses lOnd and deep of their
rebel orators.
The Harrisburg Patriot, one of the
lowest and dirtiest o the copperhead
journals, charges Gen. Hartranft with
having illegally paid ten thousand
dollars mitre compensation to certain
investigating committees appointed
by the Legislature. The record how
ever, proves no such thing. Gen.
Haitranft did not authorize the pay
ing of these committees. They were
paid by the State
_Treasurer only
after their chairmen had sworn to
their . correctness. And . who were
the chairmen- of these committees?
They were Democrats--menibers . of
'that party in the Legislature who
had the committees'appointed, and
themselves made chairmen, for the par,
pose of making money!

ready to play second-fiddle iu malign

ONE of the claims most impudently
made by the Blair-Forrestaampton
party-is that it has been loyal through

All this time the Democrats were -
encoUraging the rebels. Governor
Seymour said : "Let us see if suc

revolutionary than successful session
by the south.-" -- The whole , party
jumped to this note ,and any amount
of evidence is accessible.
The'copperheads claim, as we have
said, to have been loyal throughout.
In view of these patent facts, it may
be conceded, that they are wise in
theincorreeponding refusal to discuss
dead issues. Bat to prove their loyal
ty, they , must _summon these - - very
issues into conk. Democratic policy
was loyal. , We say that it was not,
and that a contrary policy would
have prevented the war ; or—the
war being begun —would have closed
it proniptly:
THE Georgia Bebele offered all
kinds of inducements to the Blacks
in the recent canvass and succeeded
in getting a good many of them. to
vote their ticket. They consequently
have a majority in either House 'of -
the Legislature if the Blacka who
re elected are excluded. - To get .
rid of Sambo, therefore, they vote to
turn him out, neck and heels, which
they have already done in the House.
This is no doubt _some , of the "kind

correspondence which the negroes

this Georgia Legislature dodge, the
colored men will-not feel like voting , ,
for Seymour and Blair, much.
