The Chartnan, upon assuming the paid- .
tion, made , a few brief remarks returning
his thanks for the honor conferred, - and
referred •to the object which had called
them together. and concluded by intro
ducing Wm. C. Moreland, Esq., as the fa*
speaker. '
Mr. Moreland opened his remarks by con
gratulating the citizens of, the Sixteenth
ward on the enthuithom with which the
campaign 'had been opened by them, and
said be regarded it ca one among the.many
bright promises of the success of the cause.
He then, at some length, reviewed the two
parties ' Republican' and , Democratic, DOW
before the people , askingior their.suirrage,
and showed the course of, the latter , during
the war in endeavoring, by all the Meansin
its power, to bring about an ignominous
peace. Its utterances that the,war was an
unconstitutional coercion of, the • revolted.
States; its refusalthirottglt-its party leaders
and Its representatiVee to give aid 'Or
comfort to the forces of the Union in their
struggles to maintain the government of
the States one and inseparable;' its decla
rations that the war was a failure, even in
the face of victories ' , which thrilled the
world by their magnitude and before which
the rebellion was everywhere•givinz way;
and lastly its attempts to undo all that had
been done by denying in voice mid vote the
validity of acts gassed by a constitutional
majority of a Congress . elected by the
people, thus endeavoring to force
us into another , fraticidal war,--all con-
demned it as unworthy of the suffrage or
countenance of any truelover of his country.
The Republican party, onlhe othei hand,
believing that the rsebbeelllliion was an attempt
to destroy by force of arms one of the
noblest and , best Hovernments on Which'
the sun of Heaven ever shone; believing.

maintain inviolate the principles emioating
from their convictions, and it is because or
this that to-day they come foritard and ask
of an intelligent, right-minded; loyal people
the suffrage which has been in their hands.
The gentleman next reviewed tbe char
acter of the candidates iipinsthe two tick
ets, showing the one to be the candidate of
the abettors and sympathizers of treason,
and the loud mouthed exponent of peace,•
while at the same time his action and
words were calculated to bring about , a
condition of things worse than the palm
test days of the rebellion; the other, with,
less of ostentation; but consistent with him
self, had sought peace on the battle-field,
through the main entrence of the laws.
furnishing the spectacle of an invincible
yet magnanimous conqueror, holding aloft
the sword of justice in one band and ex=
tending to all his foes the olive branch in
the other. As it was in the past so it was
now. The country must have peace, said
Gen. Grant; not a peace purchased by a
dishonorable surrender of the rights of
freemen; not a peace which would
forever disgrace the victorious ' le
gions who - had " con Tiered ' it; not a
peace which would rob the- Republic
of the fruits of four years of treasure and
sacrifices freely given; but a peace under
which the nation could sit down secure,
prosperous. and happy, rejoicing in the
strength and majesty of its goveniment—a
peace which secured to all the benefits of
an inviolate and unbroken law—a peace
which 'would rejoice the heart of every
lover of-his'country by respecting his
rights ( and protecting him in all things—
an d finally a peace underwriose benign sway
the sword would be turned into the plow
share and the spearinto the pruning hook,
and by it. eneouragment of all theae latent
sources of the nation's strength enable it
to move -onward in the pathway of the
ages, an example of a wise,ihappy, benifi
cent power. r (Applause.)
At the conclusion of Mr. •Idoreland's
speech, J. WI Pop., in answer to lona calls,
came forward and sang one of his inimit
able songs. entitled “Tne Race."
Mr. H. P. Mueller was the next speaker,
but as he discoursed altogether in German,
we are, unable to give a synopsis of his re
marks. Judging, however, from the
earnest manner in which they weredeliv
ered. and the apphiese with which they
were receivek they must have been of
more than ordinary eloquence and interest.
H. C. Mackrell, Esq., was then intro
duced, and commenced his remarks by
saying that.if the unbounded -enthnslasin
which pervaded this aeserriblege to-night
was any er tenon of the enthusiasm which
the Republican party was animated with
throughout the Union, he had no feara but
