the meeting and during; the . intervals be- .

Peterson, Jr., Jas. A. Hutchinson, George

him by calling him to preside. He then.
introduced Prof. Pope, who favored the
meeting with. a song entitled . "The U.
S. Raoe," -which - was enthasiatitically
received by the immense crowd.
L. P. STONE, •P.SCi.
The Chairman then introduced,L. P.
Stone. Esq., who addressed the meeting at
considerable length. He was pleased to
see so many persons present, wished ,
to say, however, that our success did net.
depend so much upon speeches and meet
ings as upon personal responsibility_ and: .
local organization, and he was happy to in
form the audienee that the ward organiza
tions were being perfected rapidly. The'
speaker referred to the object for'which the
;meeting had assembled, and said that do
doubt the desire of every man present was ,
to elect General Grant to the Presidency,
but it was quite evident that his election
would not be satisfactory to the Democrats
and rebels. It was the dissatisfaction at
the election of Lincoln, the best <man who
ever eccunied the Presidential chair,
that produced the late rebellion.
The- rebels desired the election of
Seymour, andif he *as fairly and honestly
elected he wished the_ people to, remember
that if was their duty to quietly submit.
If such a Misfortune should befall the
country, which the *speaker 'thought very
improbable, if we could take-Frank
letter as an indication_ of the intentions of
the rebels acid Denocrats, we might ex
pect them to atte turn OUL a loyal
C,ongress -and fill t i oar places with rebels
whose hands were red "with ':the blood Of .
Northern men. , Theepeaker continued fqr
some time and his remarks were listened
to with marked attention by the audience.
- At,the close of .his remarks, Prof. Pope was
_called upon and entertained the meeting
with a song entitled "A Democrat in Search
L" Votes.'• . ;
The Chairman then introduced Maj,
M. Brown, who said; .
•The same blooti-stained rebels who as
• sembled at New York on the 4th of July
last, were the men who were arrayed
against the Government during the rebel
lion, and their hands weed. still reeking
with the blood of the sons, brothers and
fathers of the North. The questicin befoe
- the people in this campaign was whether
the red-handed, blood-stained rebels, who
had murdered Northern men. during the
War,. theuld rule the Government, and
those' Wini had stood' by theGeverument in
her _peril, should be cast aside as auworthy
the confidence of the' American people. No
man had ever received a nomination like
that of Gen. Grant, not even Lincoln him.'
self.lThere was not even 'a voice raised
against him. He had the honor to ,rep•
:went the - Twenty-see,ond ~District in
that Convention; and he had there met men,
from the South who, if their arms were off;
'were not plot off with union bullets, but
but looYal UnioiC soldiers from ;the - South
whose arms were shot off with rebel bullets,
and all sent np a united voice for Grant.
Ho• was it at New York, with, that set of
ma who desecrated theiourth of July, the
natal day of the nation's independence, by
assembling in Tammany Hall. There was
Forrest, 'Bonham, Wade Hampton, Yellendigham, and othereof that character. New
York was the paradise of rebeldom, and
they had nominated there a traitor 115 a can
didate for the Presidency.. While rebel
cannon balls were ploughing up the earth
in Pennsylvania, this traitor was inciting_
a mob in New York to rebel against the
laws of the nation. The speaker then
turned his attention to the 'financial ques
tion, and disposed of it in a most admirable
manner. He then took up the labor clues . -
tion, which he said was all a clap trap to
catch votes. The men who were making
the most noise about.the matter were men
who were lifter a fat office. Prof. Burt, he
said, had never troubled himself about la
boring men until he became' an aspirant for
office. The speaker closed after is - beautiful
peroration, urging upon all to go to the
polls and vote and see that their neighbors
did likewise.
Prof. Pope was again called•imon and fa
vored the audience with another song.
,I, • I col. T. If. BAYNE;
The Chairman then introduced Colonel
Themes:lßL BaYne, who- addressed the
meeting in an able and eloquent manner.
The speaker said. he, was. glad to see so
many ladies present.. It was indicative of
an orderly meeting. He had just been' p
street to the rebel meeting; there was no
ladies there, and the crowd was very. dis
orderly.- He then took the questions at -is
sue between the Republican party and the
rebels, and handled them in, a very able
uninner. said , therewere no new Issues
before the people: There might he nide b
anes, but;he, was not afraid to . .lneet. thorn
fairly. The great issue was the same.whleh

der was inbrisitted to this .test,, yesterday
afternoon, at' their yards, in the presence
of a large ;concourse of engineers and
others, who evinced a deep interest in the
experiment..., The boiler was •of medium
diameteri--thirtyfeight inches—and made
of quarter-inch platea, double riveted with
steel rivets. To o it were attached one of. A.
.Pultori Sons pressure gauges and a force
pump by which water was injected intothe
already filled boiler, se that a Pressure of
several hundred , pounds was quickly
'reached: Afr the gatigei approached six
hundred manila, the- . gasket, or leaden
joint, by which the Manhole is stopped; be
gan to leaktreely, and water also spurte'll
in the form of spray from the seams, until
it was found impossible to maintain the
pressure. The circumference of the boiler
was now found to have increased an inch
'and a quarter by the stretchingof the plates.
The leaks' mentioned having been par
.tially stopped three inure trials were made,
thus more severely testing the boiler by
their 'repetition. By the lath of these a
pressure of 665 pounds. was 'reached with
out producing any further effect' than to
cause the boiler to swell in a manner that
strikingly exemplified the ductility of the
material of which it was& made, it being
now expanded two and a half inches in,
circumference. There were no signs of ; the
plates giving way at tliciAi vet holes,
where they are necessarily weaker than
any other part, the whole strain
being thrown upon the part remaining :
between the holes. Making alloWance for
this the tensile strain on each squire inch
of steel was 67,386 pounds. How • intiCh
more it may stand•can only be 'aSeicitained'
by farther _trials. These are 'to bumada
soon, when.another force pump trill be used •

EDITORS GAZETTE : Permit Me to call the
attention of the Gas Company and also the .
tax payers of this eity.,to the ~manner
which our present 154:diceattend to lighting ,
up their beats. The writer has noticed that
since the'present administration came into
power there has been scarcely one night in ,
the mouth that all the city l amps have been
. •
lighted; and on many occasions there are
from fifty to a hundred throughout the city
not lit up, but for which• the city is taxed..
Yet I do not know that the Gas Company
save much by these Lampe not•buroing,• for
the reason that a number of beata are often
lit up on hour before titne. I-would not
mention this matter, were it not that 'I see.
the negligence of the police is .increasing
daily. - '
On Thursday eveningaboy of about four
teen years, ndertook to light.up the beat
-which runs from Mechanic streetto Carson
in the Tenth ward, but although he com
menced at n quarter before' seven; (by the"
way, about one hour too soon,) at - eight
o'clock half of the beat was in darkness.
The boy was drunk, and after 'turning on
the gas .in, several of the lamps without
being able to light them, he gave it up.
Between eight and nine o'clock'some small
boys climbed the posts and lit the lamps. I.
have on more than one occasion seen beats,
where the officer did not , go on, duty, that
night, in total darkness until nearly ten
o'clock, when the Sub. whO was put on it
would light up. Is there no remdy? or
will we put up with this until Feb

A Conversation about Bonds and
'banks, •
The following, from the Norwich Bulle
tin relates a bit of true historY, midis inter
esting in more ways than one:
"The following conversation took place
in the counting-room of one , of our friends
a few days since. A prominent Democrat,
a man of strict hie prliate life,
has just put the following question, some
discussion having preceded it:
"Well s Mr. A. let us drop all political
antagonism and argue this question on
its merits: Upen what ground can you
maintain. that ens' hundred` •golddollare
shall be paid Upon a lona .for • which the
government received only fifty, unless the
exact letter of the law-demands such pay
m ent?' , , •
"Mr.- A.-='That' question' is easily an
swered, and I will giveyou a case in , point. _
Yon know old Mrs. C., our neighbor, whose
husband died in 1,859, and for whom I: -yam
trustee. Her husband lett her the house
she occupies And about 410,000 in motley,
the 'income of which is all she has for the ,
eupport of herself and • her,sipk,daughter,
who is now dying of consumPtion. As
soon as I I could-collect.the stints - due s Ther
. husband I invested , the :whole ;_in a mort
gage at seven pet cent, interest, due in five
yearg ,The notes became due in 1884; when
.the,priee of gold was .190., and I was foreed
to take my my pay in I,gal-tender _notes, •
and' r again bad to look around for an in
vestment. The , interest on the •niertgage
having been, paid in Currency. this old lady
hid been very much straitened for the past
year, and I concluded - that in'cadeitci meet ,
expences 'she must!. have her intetesVin
goid, and that even-then she weuld rose, as
I had lent money before the war at i3f3V.-
en par bent; and couldnow only get' six
per, cent. on the Five-twenty bonds, bat I
took .them.'
"Yes,' said the Democrat, 'but you took
them at leis . than sixty in gold value,'
A.'on the contrary, Mr. D.,. the
government borrowed old Milli.
thousand gold - dollars by force,when it
forced Me to take its demand notes in ee
tlement of the mortgage on which •I had
lent the gold, and these demand notee bear
ing no interest, and although due on-de
mand, being nothing more nor - less. than
failed paper, I gave the government an ex
tension by subscribing them:, for Five
twenty bonds. Igot ten thousand dollars
of the b - onds, and by so doing I got no
more and no less than the original capital,
and when I ask the goVernment to pay me
ten thonsitnd dollars in gold, I ask no more
than the payment of what I had in 1859,
If you now force - me to take greenbaciks.
which are worth only 70 cents in gold, for
my bonds, _I shall get $7,000 and .the gov
ernment will have tiontiscated $3,000 of old
Mrs. Cis property.' • _
"'l'Well, 4 said the Democrat., ‘ am not
iesPoniiblefor the ;legal tender ,l.
act; your
Republic-sir Congress made the law .and
forced Mra: l o. and me toJake the notes.'
: "Mr. A --'Yes, you and party are Aspen- •
sible; you refusea to subscribe forthebonds
you impeded the government, yeti render- .
ed aid and comfort to the rebels in every
Way that yon knew bow to, without risk--
Aim_ your, necks—your mob leader, Sey--
thet he never. subscribed a.
;didlar l tit'a loan and. never owned a bond—
YOu made it and;
for the gov--
'dointdentrth dollect a forced loan drgiveup
'tcr the rebels' '
"'Welt,' said the Democrat, attempting
to dodge, .' Mrs. o.'s case is only a - solitary •
one; .most of the bends were subscribe& for
bY men who made their money in the rise
-in prices-shoddy men and such.'
"Mr. A.—‘lndeei,are_the active business ,
men among • your acquaintances large own
ers of bonds or were they subscribers?
You know better. You. know that your -
savings banks hold a large amount, you.
know that your insurance office has its
funds .n bonds, and yon know that the men
in active business,' the shoddy men least of
all could not spare their money trorntheir
business, except a few like our neighbors
-H. dr. Co., who made it.a•point of honor to
subscribe for every loan.'
"The Democrat.= Why don't you sgo. toe
"work and take up your greenbacks; your
failed paper as you call it.'
"Mr. A. l Thatja what
--we mesa to do:
We know that greenbacks are the people's
:money, and when we have elected ,- Grant,
we mean to make them as good as gold, and
we, intend to do that by burying your rebel
repudiators and mob leaders out of sight
and hearing.' • •

A WAAIIINGTON teiegrarri says : The ne
gotiations of Seymour men, resulting in a.
partial promise from the President to sup
port the Democratic nominations, were man
aged by ' , Col. Tan Buren, of Nets York,
and another entleman from, ;'he same city,
whose name has not yet" tisnspired. One
of the Presidextt'S strongest Democratic sup
porters in the Convention with persona of
his own party, to-day asserted that no de
pendence could be placed in Mr. Johnson's
late , promises of support to 'Seymour, and.
that he had no real desire or intention to aid
the party.
