Bun-no, Monday Evening, Oct. 26.
The Democrats of Bufi‘dlo, to the number of
over six thousand, assembled at and around
St. James Hall this evening, filling She hall to
the number of two thousand “(Hive hundred,
and overflowing into two large meetings in
the street. to the number of three or {our thou
sand. The enthusiasm was immense, and the"
meeting is numbered umong- the largest. ever
held in the city. . . - -
Hon. John Ganson presided; ‘ . '
Governor Seymour was introduced amidv
continued = and tremendous cheering. - And
when, aftér about five minutes, in finally sfilled.
somebody was yet. unsatisfied. and called for
“ Three cheers for Governor Seymcnr,” which
were given, and more Loo. Governor-Seymour:
spoke as-follévis: " ‘ ' '
«30v. szynro'un's ammo}:
I sincerely regret that Governor Bramlette
is not‘here to-night to speak to you. ‘ I wished
you to learn from the lips of a patriot of Ken
, tacky that the language of those who loveand
mean to uphold the Constitution, and intend'
to preserve the Union, is alike,_utteredbymen
from the North or the South, from the East
or the West. You would have found that that
distinguished man, who lives in a community
particularly afi‘cotecl by the war in which we
are engaged, and who has stood up‘ with others
abreast of the tide of secession, was in full
accord and sympathy with us who meet here“
tel-night to utter words which we hope may be
calculated to preserve that Union of our-land
which 'we have so much, at heart. (Cheers)
In hiiabsenoe I will address you breifiy in
regard to the great questions of the day} Our
land is aflicted with a civil war of proportions
unexamplcd in the history of the world: The
'flame of a great conflagration is lapping up
the blood of our citizens; is destroying the
property of our people ; is carrying mourning
and death to, our homes, and'thrsatens the
very fabric of our Union. Under clrcumstam
ces like these, my friends, when we assemble
together, we ought to come up with an honest
purpose to take that; course at the coming
election which shall be calculated to advance
our country’s good, to make our nation once
again what it was a few year's sincefi-the envy
and admiration of the whole world. (Ap
plause) Unfortunately, at times like those,
.When so much is at stake and when there is
every reason why men should be calm, dispos
sionate, thoughtful and patriotic, we are allot‘
us too prone to give way to passion and pre
judice. You hearfrom some quarters only the
language of denunciation, of chase; appeals
to passion,_ where there should he, arguments
addressed 130' Diff consciences and our convic:
Lions of duty. . Lét us meet“ thé'tfues'tibns we?
are to discuss to-night with an anxious pur
pose to discover where the right is, and, hav
ing succeeded in that, boldly, ‘manfully, patri
oticall'y, to sustain and maintain it. (Cheer-s.)
Now,'in the discussions which are going on
in this country, there are certain points upon
which all men are agreed. Let us at the outset
ascertain what they are, so that we may more
clearly understand the nature of the disagree
ments which exist between us. All men agree
in this—that if this war is prolonged for-“a
;oertain period of time. withpa continually in
. creasing debt, that there must come a time
3 when it will reach an amount that will over
} whelm us with national bankruptcy. Men
3 may not agree as to what that sum may be—
one may say two thousand millions. another
three thousand millions, and perchance a more
sanguine man still, may fix the amount at four
thousand millions, but there is no man who
does not agree that there is an amount of pub
lic indebtedness which, if fastened upon us,
must bring upon us the calamity and disgrace
of national bankruptcy. There is another
‘ point of agreement. There is no man who
does not admit that if this war continues on
for a certain period, it must overwhelm us with
1 national ruin. Then here are two points on
which, although we may differ as to the amount
3 or time, we essentially agree—two events that
iall admit must bring upon no individual and
national ruin. All agree that we must bring
this war to a successful issue before ~we have.
been overwhelmed by these national evils.—
We agree, too, that the exigency is so great
and the peril so imminent fhat we are bound to
put forth every exertion to save our country
from these calamities which lie in our path
way, as soon as may be. We say to our oppo~
nents, we are ready with you to put forth
every efi‘ort of physical power—we consecrato
ourselves and all that we have for for the sal~
‘vatiou and perpetuation of our country. In
1 all solemnity I say it, with a heart full of love
i for my country ; with a desire to sacrifice any
thing and everything for its preservation and
; its happiness—with all solemnily I say it, that
‘ here again. as we have before done, do we dedi—
cate ourselves to this most holy and, atriotic
work of saving this fair land of ours lull-hm ruin
and disintegration. Now in this we are agreed.
Where, then, commences the point of (liver
gence? Where do our foot-ways branch of
-from each other? We’ go farther than they,
and agree to add one further influence against
rebellion—Anal: of conciliation. (Great cheers).
We desire to put the North upon a platform
upon which all can stand, so that we shall pre
sent one undivided end unbroken front. We
:will not only bring all the powers of force
: against the rebellion but we will do more than
;tha’t—we will carry disunion into itsranks
\ by extending to them in this hour when vic
l tory has crowned us, and when it is great and
‘ magnanimous so to do, every inducement that
honest and honorable men can ofl‘er to them to
return to the Union. (Cheers)
In this we differ Irom our political opno
‘nents; we do not refuse to exert one single
energy loss than they; we propose to brui'g to
hear these influences which the historyvoi’ the
world, your own good judgment—everytbin g—
teaches you is essential to bring to a success
ful termination any contest, whether between
individuals or of nations. (Cheers) We feel
't‘hatuhuponh this point, therefore. we hold
‘higher ground than is held by those who on g
matize us as being untrue to our country._ W hy
do they stigmatize us thus? .They would
hardly make the imputation against #l]: hun
dreds and thousands who have gone forth from
the Democratic ranks; to battlefor the flag Of
our Union. (Great cheering.) Why then ? .15
it because we are willing not only to sustain
our soldiers in the field; to sacrifice Pr°PHP¥
1 and life, but that we say that. more than tins,
} we will sacrifice upon the altar of our country
‘ our pride and passions. when Pride and pa?-
‘ slon stand in the way of our success ?‘ (Cher-s.)
‘ But this is not the only point of dilforence.
thwill not concede that unless there is more
energy, more skill, more judgment exhibited,
thanhes heretofore marked the progress Of
this war, we are coming to certain. destrlction ?
A man may float along the beautiful. nher that
runs by your city, in safety, [or a time; but if
he continues, day after day, to float idly along.
and allows the time to pass by when he can
reach the margin in safety. he will find himself
at last in sight of that mighty cataract‘whose
name is famous through Out the world, and will
find himself within the swift vortex of its
waters which will whelm him in utter destruc
tion. 80 with our nation, unless we put forth
every exertion not only of material power but
of wise statesmanship, of Christian considera
tion, of patriotic sacrifice of passion and pre
judice, we too shall find, alas, too late. that
the period is post when we can rescue our
selves from the dangers that lie in our course.
(Cheer-s.) That party is most true to the coun
try which proposes to wage this war for pur
poses wnich are attainable, which are within
reach. 0n the other hand, that party does the
most to endanger our future and bring us to
destruction which opposes new and greater
obstacles to the successful termination of the
war. New I ask you to listen for a moment
while Istate to you ‘ the altitude of the two
great parties upon' this subject. We say on
our part that we wage this war forfthe pur
pose of restoring the Union, for the purpose
of upholding our Constitution, and’ of main
taining and defending those personal, home,
hearth-stone rights of the citizen which. are
guaranteed in that Constitution- These 76er
tainly are objects worthy of the approval of all
good men, ifl‘lhe] are more easily reached than
the objects sought forby our opponents in this
war. It is easier to bring back the Southern
States when we say that if they come back to
the performance of their duties. they shall also
enjoy their rights aslStates, than it is, if we
say ‘that they must,‘ when they return, bow
abje‘otly to the dictation of passionate and in
furiated men. (Cheer-s.) . -
Let me call your attention to the history of
this war. When it began, by the unanimous
vote of Congress, representing all parties, it
was solemnly declared that the object of this"
contestwas to put down resistance to the laws,
to maintain the dominion of the Constitution
over ,the whole country, and to restore the
Union of our fathers. At that time there was
no division of sentiment in the Nor-tin, All
were united in carrying on the contest. All
gave their contributions of men andmoney,
and for a time the voice of party seemed to be
hushed. But a little-whilealter that we were
told that the‘war was to he continued for ano
ther purposeuthat there was a cause for this
difiiculty—that slavery was the cause andvsla
very was to be removed. We protested against
this issue. .- Time has moved on and now- we»
have another issue. Not content to have the
war end with the restoration of the Union and
MW supremacy of the Constitution, or even
with the destruction of slavery, you have re
cently heard the declaration from the Vice
President of the United States and by Senators
from Eastern States, who not only prognosti
cate, but make the policy of this administra
tion, thatfihis war is to go onuntil the general
government has added, to it new power over
and new relations to the vast regions of the
South, which, they say. once were States. You
have heard-the boasts-by one Senator that not
a only should the war go on, but that it had gone
onuntil the greatnnd imperial State of-Nerv
York was dragged at the heels of a conqueror.
(Laughter and applause.) Can we hope for a
successful termination of this war within a
period of time that will save us from national
bankruptcy and national ruin, if we are to have.
day after day, new and more diflioult issues
presentedand if day after day in its progress we
are to be told that its ends and objects are to
be more and more revolutionary and subver
sive of all we have been taught to honor or hold
deer in our system of government? We pro~
pose to wage this War for a. purpose upon
which the whole North is united—for a pur
pose which will draw to our standard hundreds
and thousands of hearts in the South, which yet
beat with love for our old banner and our old
Constitution. (Cheers) They propose that
we shall carry on the war for purposes that
we at the North cannot. unanimously consent
to; they propose not to put down revolufion,
but. to make revolution ; they propose to 05er
no inducement for rebels to submit to the laws,
but they say to us and to them that we shall no
longer have guaranty of the Constitution for
the preservation of our liberties hereafter as
they have been preserved before. I appeal to
you if this is not their attitude. Can the war
he brought to a successful conclusion by a
part”, that coolly proposes that when every in
terest of the South shall vibrate toward the
Union. we shall plunge into an abyss of con
troversy and discussion, instead of saying that
the Constitution shall then, as in times past,
be our guide? ' -
Consider, I pray you, seriously the proposi
tions that have been laid before the community
by our opponents, in reference to this Wan-
See if it is not true that they make this war
one for indefinite purposes, for objects that
we cannot attain, and ought not to attain, if
they do not go further than saying that it isa
war for the purpose of restoring the Union and
the Constitution. They declare boldly and
openly that We are to abandon the traditions
and laws of our fathers. To attain their ends
it is necessary to trample upon the Constitu
tion, so that the general goverfifint shall be
vested with greater powers the. e have ever
heretofore been willing to confer upon it.—
They tell you that we want a strong govern
ment at Washington. They say that firm take
jurisdiction from localities, from towns and
counties, and States, and centralize it at Wash—
ington, we shall have a stronger government.
I deny that proposition. (Applause) I in
sist upon it‘that if they should succeed in that
policy, so for from making the government
stronger, they will make it weaker. Ido not
charge that they do not honestly entertain the
convictions that they express, but I charge, if
carried out, they will involve the government
in ruin. (Cheers.) The strength of the gen
eral government lies not alone in the power
which has been conferred upon it, but the re
straint which the Constitution throws around
it. his made strong not only hyrwhat the
Constitution says it may do, but by what the
Constitution says it may not do. The Consti~
tution forbids Congress from taking away the
right to make laws interfering with religion,
with the, rights of home. with the rights of
free speech, becauseithe power of exercising
those rights would shatter it to atoms. (Great
applause.) If I might make a very palpable
illustration I would say that the nation is like
awell: bound Cask, Suppose a cask should
take it into its head.—reaaoning perhaps as
wisely as theyisometimes do at Washington——
that if it should burst its hoops it might be
come a hogshead, it. might increase its strength
and dimensions. Why, if it would burst its
hoops it would not even remain a barrel,
it would he a mere bundle of stoves.—
(Laughter and cheers.) Now,)whe,n our gen
eral government at Washington shall succeed
in bursting these restraints upon its power
which are placed there for the purpose of its
preservation—for the purpose of binding the
government together—so far will it be from
true thatthey have strengthened the govern
ment, that the fact, will be that they will have
brought upon it weakness, diseumfiture, dis
honor. and disgrace. - ‘
Let us see if these views are purely theoret
ical. Last winter 1 was called upon by a friend
of very difi'erent opinions from myself—fer I
have friends on. the other side. notwithstand
ing so much-is said about my “friends”—con
cerning the draft, and he wanted to know if I
feared for the rights and existence of the States
from its operation. I toldhim I had no such
fears. I told him I should not fear for the
States. .bnt'that I should tremble for the gen
eral government itself, and Ith.]: tried to
make him see that the attempted exercise of
such powerson the part of the general gov
ernment, so far from arming it with greater
strength, would prove perilous to it. I begged
him to see, and to tell those who sent him to
sesame that the strength of government should
he basedupon the afi‘eetions of ' the people.—
(Loud cheers.) I begged him to tell them that
if they would make this government strong.
and powerful, it was by addressing themselves
to the {affection and regards of the whole
American people. (Gheers.) Not many months
have r‘ollod‘hway since, in response to a call
fromthe government, the...people of this coun
try sent six hundred thousand men to fight the
battles 'of the country. Why did they go 2 Was
it because they were called for by the voice of
powor 1’ It was because they were sent; for, to
volunteer for the ,defense of the nation, and
they came from school'distr'iet, village; town;
city and State,‘ until they .swelleddhtp the
mightiest military array that the world has
ever seen. Well. as a resultsflhis yoluntary
action of, the public, the administration feund
itself in the control of a mightyvarmy, and for
getting from whence it derived its strength—
that it was the power and strength of the peo
ple alone. which: they held—they were bewil
dere “ , the splendor of their position, and
they , . fired that they would no longer live
upofifi e charity of the community and send
around a contribution box when they=wanted
ineffici- money, hutwhenever men. were wan
t‘e‘d- they would send-ofieers toforee the people
into the ranks. I warned them of the result of
that experiment. I implored them for their
own sakes, for thesake of the cause in which
theyhad engaged, not tomake the attempt,—
If I had been influenced by personal or party
considerations I should not have said one word
when they‘persistedin the" way that was to
lead them. to discomfiture and disgrace. But
I told them that if they would pursue a policy;
that would appeal to the hearts of the people
there would he ndlimit to their strength, but
if they should attempt to subvert the whole
policy of our government, and should suppose
that they were armed with power to compels
free people in any-oourse. they would not only
endanger themselves .hut endanger the gov
ernment. (Cheer-s.) . '
I humiliatedmyself before these men rather
than I would see them enter the homes of your
citizens with forest Against'my most earnest
prayer that this our glorious Suite should he
saved from this ignominy and disgrace, and be
allowed to send forth her son's cheerfully and
freely ‘to the battle-field, the measure was
adopted. I was told there was no timelto wait
in New York-Ahough‘ there was time to wait
for New Jersey and Ohio and other States. I
told them of our services. ' I told them what
was'true, that New York was the only‘Atlontio
State that had given more‘thon its proportion
of troops under the calls of the President.
(Great cheering.) I implored in vein. The
rash experiment. was made. What was the re
sult? Why you'have seen that one year ago
New York voluntarily gave one hundred and
twenty thousand of her sons to *he service of
her country, ”rind yet under the draft, with the
whole energy of the government put forth,
with armed men paraded through the State,
with the threats of legal proceedings and mili
'tary force, you. have seen carried away less
than ten thousand’ men, more than half of
whom were in truth volunteers. because they
were bought with a price Now that is the
doctrine of consolidation carried into practical
effect. Thus one method, by which our gov
ernment was to be made strong, has been tried.
Is this strength or weakness? Is this success
or failure? I implore you look into these
questions yourselves. I do not complain of
what may be said of myself, that I have been
misrepresented; that I am charged with tree.-
son; with almost all the offences to be found
in the catalogue of crime. I have not one
word to say in my own defense, but I do com~
plain that citizens of this State who are our
political opponents join in the calamities
against theim own State, which has done so
much to sustain the government. (Cheers.)
Whenever I have asked for justice for the
State—andl have only asked for justice—it
has always led immediately to the charge that
there was a. desire to embarrass the general
government. As I have said, ours was the
only Atlantic State which, on the first day of
January last, had sent to the war such num
bers that it was entitled to credit for surplus.
That was conceded at Washington._ And it. was
conceded, too, thstl’ennsylvanio. New Jersey,
and every New England Stole, save the little
State of Rhode Island, were behind. (Cheers)
Since the first day of January last the State
of New York hos sent. fifteen thousand men
out of its limits to defend Pennsylvania. (Loud
hpplause.) .
[TheSenmh -Warcl Democratic Club here
entered the hall with an American flag, and a
banner inscribed “ Union, Liberty, and the
Laws," amid greet cheering. Cheers were
also given for Governor Seymour and General
M’Clellan. When order was restored Governor
Seymour continued :]
When we were so agreeably interrupted by
our friends from the Seventh ward, I was speak
ing of the service of New York. New York is
the only State in the Union that has given
bounties to volunteers from its State treasury,
without regard to the question whether there
was or was not a draft to be made. Since the
adjournment of the Legislature I have been
laboriously employed with the whole of my
staff in the work of filling up the ranks of
volunteers. (Cheers) Suddenly there came
up a. midnight cry from Washington for help.
A proclamation was issued to Ohio, Pennsyl
vania and Marylandrcalling for n hundred
thousand men to rally immediately to save the
nation’s capital. A friend of mine at Wash
ington asked them why they did not call on
New York. “Oh,” they said, “New York has
got it Copperhead Governor. he will do noth
ing,” '(Laughter.) But New York was called
on, and the result; was that New York was
about the only State that did anything in re
inforcing the army already in the field.—
(Laughter and cheers.) Ido not speak of this
because I cl‘aim {my merit. I did but my duty.
When the President of the United States, the
constitutional head of this government, called
upon me, as he had a right to call upon me under
the Constitution. I responded as it became my
duty to do. (Cheers) New I want. to state,
in justice to New York and in justice to the ML,
ministration. that while many Republican citi
zens of New York were traducing our own great
State, I received a dispatch from the Secretary
of War thanking the for my prompt response
and begging that 1 would send on our troops
at once so as to stir up Pennsylvania and other
States to come to the rescue; (Applause)—

of the 'United States, in a speech within the

some men who want the Union as it was, and
the Constitution as it is. Well, they can‘t have
them.” We can’t have the Constitution as it
is 2 .This question is involved in the coming
elections. I ask you when you have, by the
edict of your votes. sustained a party that de
l clares itself opposed to the Constitution, will
i you have left one-third of that fundamental
‘» law to protect you? i defy any man to show
whenever We have been untrue to the Consti
tution or untrue to our post. 1 defy any man
to show that it is not true that we on our part
have been in favor of exerting every material
and every'moral power and every exertion of
statesmanship to bring this war to a successful
conglusion, and, on the other hand that we have
refrained from placing those obstacles in the
way of that result which are placed there by
the theorists who propose to make it no longer
a war {or the Constitution, but a war for the
extermination of slavery. and for the crushing
out of the rights of the States, for the lessen
ing of the jurisdiction of the Constitution and
the widening of that of the administration.
(Cheers) These things are involved in the
election that is about to take place. ‘As I said
in the outset, they concern the country and
the community, they concern each man in his
liberty, in his conduct, in his home.
I have alluded to the wrongs done to our
Stat-e. I have not alluded to the wrongs done
to myself, nor shall I do so. For I tell you
here, and in saying these things I know I
speak for every true lover of the country, how
ever unjust our political opponents may be to
us, however much they may traduce our char—
acter, however much they may threaten, we
shall never be turned aside one hair’s breadth
from the faithful and full performance of our
duty. (Cheersj We shall not be prevented
from doing our whole duty to this administra~
tion, in all respects, where they have a:right to
call upon us; nor, on the other hand, will we
be driven to do a wrong to our own rights by
the full exercise of this power. We will do our
duty, and we will demand our rights. We will
battle on faithfully and hopefully for our
country; for let me tell you this, and I say that.
which I believe in my inmost heart, that'dark
as the clouds are which hang over our coun
try, mistaken as has been the policy of our
ruler-S, unfortunate as has been their conduct,
I tell you, notwithstanding that, I feel in my
own heart assured that our Union shall live,
that our Constitution shall be preserved, and
that peace will again dawn upon our land.—’
(Land cheering.) I believe that the very. ex;
periments our political opponents are making
will be attended with good. Up to this time
we only knew that we had prospered marvel
ously under the system of government which.
our fathers adopted. But there have been those
who maintained that we should have been still'
more successful under a more centralized gov
ernment. By the experiments now making
the question will be set at rest. and no man
will again advocate centralization. .So I am.
still full of confidence. I hope, in the lan
guage of another, for the time when the war
shall be passed by, and there will be upon the
flag of our country. every star that glitters
there, and in the bounds of our confederaoy a
State for every star. (Cheers ) I hope before
many months shall hare rolled away, that all
will agree that. those men are traitors who
would tear asunder the ring of our country or ‘
who would wipe out from the azure field a
single star that glitters there. and that alimeu
will unite in restoring the. States to all their
original splendor, to all their glory, to all their
greatngsg. and :0 all their united strength..—
