The subjoined speech, delivereu by Gen.
J. B. Sweitzer, of Pittsburg, at a meeting
of the Soldiers and Sailors of Alleghany
county held in that city on the 10th ult., I
is commended to the careful perusal of the
Boys in Blue, , of, whatever politics. The
General served gallantly throughout the
war. lie was a Democrat tiU .the,JQomi-4
nation of Seymour and Blair, when he saw
that the'hucecsi of thocC candidates must
inevitably lead to another rebellion, and,
like a true patriotLiJ cunie out from among
the foul party and ranged himself under
the banner of Grant and Colfax. He was
elected chairman of the meeting, and spoke
as follows :
Fellow Citizens, Soldiers of the Repub
lic, Comrades in arms: "Words can scarce
ly express my appreciation of the honor
you have done me, as well by your cordial
greeting as in calling me to preside over
your deliberations. It is an honor to be
called to preside over an ordinary meeting
cf citizens of this free country, where the
people think and act for themselves, and
how much greater the honor when the
assemblage is composed, as this is, of the
heroes of an hundred battle-fields of the
defenders of their country, its honor, and
glory, and of those who for five. long years
followed the fortunes oi the old nag, under
defeat and in victory, until it waved tri
umphant over our vanquished enemies. .
Follow soldiers, we have met to-night
for a purpose that is clearly set forth in
the call ior tliLs meeting.. e have met -i
to organize for another campaign under
our old leader. We have met to testify
our confidence in him. He led xts to vic
tory in the field, and he will lead us to
victory at the ballut-box over those who
seek again to bring about, con fusion x an
archy, and warr -
That such is the design of those who
iupport the opposing: candidate for the
Presidency, is no iuje fancy. It is decla
red in their platform ; was declared pre
vious to the nomination in tho letter of
their candidate for the Vice Presidency,
nud there is every reason to believe that
this declaration cau.sccl him to be selected.
Y hat, under tLsc circumstances, is our
duty? Is it not our. duty to use every
honorable means in our power to avert the
threatening danger '? Have not thoae we
fought in the field organized under the
leadership cf the Democratic candidate,
and Ls it not therefore our duty to organ-,
ize and 'Tall in" under the leadership of
our old commander ? ' "
It may be said we can do our duty as
citizens at the ballot-box without such or
ganization. But, my friends, is that our
whole duty? Have we not a further duty
to perform than to merely vote?. Any
person can do that, though he can do
something more. AVe can testify to those
who speak so flippantly, j-et confidently, of
nullification by force, first, that we intend
to avoid, if possible, any such calamity, by
elevating to tho highest olhce in our gift
the soldier who desires peace, who will
preserve it if it can be done consistently
with the national honor; and secondly,
if war must come, that we will stand by
him aud have him. to load us.
Now, my fellow soldiers, allow, me to
say that I do not stand before you . as a
mere partisan , and to of the
truth of what I say, I was a VV'hig as long
as the "Whig party existed. During the
administration of Taylor and Fillmore,
when the famous compromise measures
were passed, I was United States District
Attorney here, and as an ofiicer of the
law. it became my duty to execute the
Fugitive Slave Law, and I did it, regard
less of consequences to myself and of the
opinions of those who opposed it. I did
this becaxtsc I considered it the duty of all
good citizens to obey the law so long as it
remained on the statute-book, however
much it conflicted with their individual
opinions, and I considered it my duty, as
a sworn officer of the law, to execute it,
repulsive as it was to me and my feelings
as a man. From that time down to the
commencement of the war, I did every
thing in my power to keep the peace with
the people of the South. In the language
of General Grant, I was not an abolition
ist ; I was not even an anti-slavery man.
I did not join the Republican partv. I
did not vote for Lincoln. I voted for Doug
las and Breckinridge, the union ticket. I
thought I had done about all they could
ask of me. I felt conscious of having done
nothing to stir cp war. Nevertheless,
nothing but war would satisfy them ; and,
fellow soldiers, much as I abhorred war
fratricidal war I could not forget my
duty as a citizen, and like many of you, I
went voluntarily into the field and contrib
uted to the extent of my ability and
strength to maintain the honor of my
country and my flag. In 1804, I voted
for General McOlellan. I was in the Ar
my of the Potomac from its organization.
I had confidence in him. I thought he
had been hardly treated, and' when he had
been nominated at Chicago, I voted for
liiia rcadktoa. peace phtibrui, iu:d all.
I did not like the platform, but I was wil
ling to trust, McCiellan notwithstanding
the platform. ,But, my friends, I thought
I saw in the action of the LiaJsrs 6fthat
convention a determination to either rule
or ruin. I thought I saw a determination
cn (Tie part of the' Peace Democrats who
figured largely in it, and made its plat
form, never to let a victory be won by the
party; unless it brought with it their vin
dication and indorsement and placed them
again in position and power. I. determin
ed that thereafter I w.u!d se the cards
tx-thrt"Ws&tYfi-iief!r,u 'measures oi cn
gress. I was opposed to the impeachment
of the President. The Senate acquitted
the President, and I think they did right.
Congress passed the reconstruction meas
ures The Presideut vetoed thorn. Cots.
gress passed them over the veto by the
Constitutional vote. The amendments
were adopted by the requisite number of
States. They are now the law of the land,
and so long as they are, I wiU sustain
. "Well, my friends, wo now come down to
the present crisis for crisis I consider it
to be. Wc are approaching another Pres
idential election, and it is necessary for you
and for me to take sides. "Wo must de
clare for Grant or for Seymour. No man
can stand neutral in this great emergency.
Then let us determine at once for whom it
shall be, if it is not already done.
Every one knows who nominated Grant,
and how it was done. The great Ameri
can people nominated him long before the
Chicago Convention mot.. The politicians
would have been glad to have had some
one else if they cculd. Sc::: one not quite
so "much given to putting things through
on his own line would have cuitod thr-nt
better. But they dared not disregard the
voice of the people, and so the Convention
recorded their verdict.
But how about Seymour ? Who nom
inated him, and how was that done ? Os
tensibly the Democratic party nominated
him, but who controlled the action of the
Convention ? Solar as I am able to judge
from the result, the Peace .Democrats of
the North and the War Democrats of the
South made the nominations and the plat
form. The same pestiferous Ohio delega
tion, that weighted M'Clelkin down at
Chicago, went to New York, determined
again to rule or ruin. They went there
armed invincibly as they supposed.) with
l'eudletou and the greenback dodge with
a specious appeal to the mercenary spirit
of the people, whereby they thought this
great nation could be induced to ignore
the life-struggle through which it had jut
passed to forget the new made graves of
its fallen heroes, and to look with indiffer
ent, unsympathizing 03-03 upon the maimed
and halting figures of the brave comrades
who are still amontr vis.
But they failed to nominate their man,
and, failing in this, they determined : to
nominate the next best representative of
their principles and their policy, and in
this they succeeded. Hancock would not
do- nor Farragut, nor Chase, nor Hen
dricks, nor Johnson. No one would suit
them who thought we did right to fight
for the flag. So much for the action0 of
the Peace Democrats of the North. Let
us look at the action of the "War Demo-'
crats of the South. What did they do ?
They dictated the most important features
in the platform.- Gen. Wade Hampton
tells tis he framed and inserted the para
graph declaring the reconstruction acts to
be usurpations, and "unconstitutional,
revolutionary aud void." Thou .having
secured a war plat i arm, they nominated a
fighting General tj fight it through, if
elected. They want another . Avar more
blood, more debt, and more taxes. Fellow
soldiers. I don't ; and, therefore, I determ
ined to oppose that combination their
nominations and their platform. I deter
mined that no such flimsy barriers as par
ty ties and party lines should keep me
from doing what I believe to be my duty
to nryself and to my country, and I deter
mined to go for the man who wants peace
for the man who does not talk war, but
who fiyli fs war when war is inevitable. I
determined to go for the man who con
quered an honorable peace and saved the
life of the nation ; for the man whom we
have tried and found true in every trust
in whom the people have confidence ;
aye, even the people who were lately in
arms against him. And wherefore should
they not confide in him? Has he not
been as generous and honorable towards a
fallen foe, as he was chivalrous and brave
in battle ? No victor ever gave more
generous terms. No victor ever kept
more truly his plighted word.
And, fellow soldiers, because I have so
determined, I am Ik re to-night to take
part in your proceeding 1 1 assist in or-

Anecdote of M r. Lincoln.
V In a late number of the Indwciulcnt is
given, byIlev. .Edward Eggleston, a hith- I
erto Tinpublisted incident m the life of
Abraham Lincoln" : ' -
' ; A respected townsman ari bid acquain-r
tance of Mr. Lincoln, wasthe narrator of
and was himself
to that habit of
in the West, by
means of which a man is made to prolong
his'boyhood throughout his life,; this gen
tleman Ls known anions: old friends by the
name of "Jim," as 3Ir. Xiucoln VvTas al
ways called "Abe." '
"Thrgentleman relatesatr soon after
Mr. Lincoln's Cooper Institute speech, he :
saw . a notice- in the . New .York Tribune
that Hon. A. Lineoln, of Illinois,: had deliv
ered an address to the' Sunday school at
Five Points, which was very well received
by both teachers and pupils. Knowing
that Mr. Lincoln was not: a professor of
religion, it struck him that it was a good
subject for banter; and so, seizing the
paper, he started for '-Old Abe's" office.
Bursting into the room impulsively, he
was startled to find a stranger in conver
satiou with Mr. Lincoln, and turned to
retrace liis steps, when the latter called
out : .
; J "Jim, whatdo you want ?"
' "Nothing." -
' "Yes you do ; come back-"
After some entreaty, "Jim" approached
Mr. Lincoln, and remarked, with a merry
twinkle in his eye
' "Well, Abe, I see you've been making
a speech to Sunday- school children.
What's the matter ?" .
VSit down, Jim, and I'll tell you all
about that." . '
'And with that, he put his feet on the
stove and becran :
When Sunday morning came. I did
not know exactly what to do. Washburne
asked me where 1 wa going. I told him
I had nowhere to go, and he proposed to
take me down to the Five Points Sunday
school, to show me something worth sce-
irrg. Ivas very much interested by what
1 s:iw. Presently Mr. Pease came up and
spoke to Y'a.shburne, who Introduced me.
Mr. Pease wanted us to speak. Wash
burne spoke, and then I was urged to
speak. I -told them I did not know any
thing about talking to Sunday schools ;
but Mr. Pease said that there were many
of them friendless and homeless, and that
a few words would do them good. ' Wash
burne said I must talk. And so I rose to
speak ;' but I tell you, Jim, I didn't know
what to say. I couldn't talk about Christ
and religion, for I didn't know much of
cither ; but I remembered that Mr. Pease
had said ' that they were homeless and
friendless, and I thought of the time when
I had been pinched by terrible poverty.
And so I told them that I had been poor ;
that I remembered when my toes stuck
out through broken shoes in the Avinter ;
when my arms were out at the elbows ;
when I shivered with the cold. And I
told them there was only one rule, and
that was Always, do ilic eery best you can.
I told them that I had always tried to do
the best I could
; and that, if they would
follow that rule, they would get alouir
somehow. That , was about what I said.
And when I got through, Mr. Pease said
it was just the thing they needed. Aud
when the school was dismissed, all the
teachers came up and shook hands with
me, and thanked me for it, though I did
not know th:tt I was saying anything of
any account. But the next morning I
saw nry remarks noticed in the papers."
Just here 31 r. Lincoln put his hand in
his pocket, and remarked that he never
heard anything that touched him as had
the songs which those children sang. -With
that he drew forth a little book, re
marking that they had uiven him. one of
the books from which they sang.
"Did you ever hear any poetry like
this, Jim?"
And he began to read a piece, with all
the earnestness of his great, earnest soul.
In the middle of the second verse, his
friend "Jim" felt a choking in his throat
and a tickling in his nose. At the begin
ning of the third verse, ho saw that the
stranger from the East was weeping, and
his own tears fell fast. Turning toward
Lincoln, who was reading straight on, he
saw the great blinding tear3 in his eyes,
so that he could not possibly see the page.
He was repeating that little song from
memory ! How often he had read it, or
how long its sweet and simple accents
continued to reverberate through his soul,
no one can know. How much influence
may that little child's song have had in
bringing hint. to that fearful attitude to
ward God which was so characteristic of
the weary closing years of his
Du;uNa the v
ar, a wjman went to a
grocer s shop, and found she was paying
double for candles; so she asked what was
the reason candles were so dear. The gro
cer replied, "Oh, it is on account of the
war." "Dear me," replied the woman,
"and have they got to fi-jrhtin? by candle
light !" 3 - '
From the New York Literary Album.
lion. Daniel J. ZUorrel.
In a former number of the Literary
Album we presented a sketch of Mr. Jos.
II. Scranton, in connection with the par
ticulars of the founding of Scranton, Pa.,
and the Lackawanna Iron and Coal Com
pany, and we now propose to give a sketch
of the Hon. Daniel J, 3Iorrelj, of Cambria
Iron YTorks, at Johnstown, in the same
State, ; who .is another important inan . in
the iron manufacturing interest, and an
influential member of the Fortieth Con-
Mr. Morrell was horn at North Ber
wick, Maine, August S, ''1821, and is
therefore about forty-seven .years of age.
He received a common school education,
and settled in Philadelphia in 1S3G.
Here he followed the mercantile business
as clerk and principal until 1S55, when he
entered into the business of manufacturing
iron at. Johnstown; at. the works of the
Cambria Iron Company.
The. Company commenced the erection
of the works in 1S33, but became finan
cially embarrassed before they were com
pleted. A lease of the entire property
was made to the firm of Wood, Morrell &
Co., who not only carried out the original
plans of the company, but during their
lease irreatly enlarged the works and in
creased their capacity. In lSGli the
company was re-organized, with a capital
of one million five hundred thousand dol
lars. Since that time it has carried on
the business of mining and manufacturing
under its charter, aud is now the largest
manufacturer of railroad iron in the coun
try. It owns about thirty thousand "acres
of land mostly mineral has four large
blast furnaces, rolling mills, machine shop,
foundry, etc., with numerous dwelling's for
its operatives. The original mill building
was burned down in 1S57, and rebuilt the
same year by the lessees. This building
is six hundred and twelve feet long, by
one" hundred feet wide, with cross wings
three hundred and seventy-two feet by
scventy-four feet. In 1SG3 an additional
mill buiMing, three hundred feet by one
hundred feet, with a connecting wing
seventy-four feet by thirty feet, was erect
ed, and in 1SG5 a further extension of the
building, three hundred feet by an aver
age of one hundred feet, was made.
This immense mill contains fortv-eight
double, equal to ninety-six single puddling
furnaces, twenty-four heating furnaces,
seven trains of rolls, four squeezers, and
other machinery to correspond. ,Its pro
duction in 18G5 was near one thousand
tons per week ; the extensions and im
provements have increased its capacity
equal to the production of from sixty to
seventy thousand tons of finished railroad
iron per annum. The stock of the com
pany is largely owned In Philadelphia,
where the office is located.
Mr. Morrcll's advent at Johnstown was
a source of great advantage to that place.
He not only raised the bankrupt Cambria
Company into life and carried forward its
Avorks to completion, but he inspired a
spirit of enterprise on every hand for the
improvement and growth of Johnstown.
He served for a time in the councils of the
town, and in 18GG was elected a represen
tative in the Fortieth Congress. A Na
tional bank was established and he became
the president. He is also vice-president
of the American Industrial League, of
which the noted Peter Cooper is president.
Since he has been in Congress, he has
given a great deal of attention to the pro
jects of finance and taxation.' " He intro
duced a bill to provide for 'the holding of
gold by the United States Treasury and
the National Banks. More recently he
delivered an
important and elaborate
speech on the subject of. the public fi
nances, taking ground for the increase of
the national bank circulation. This speech
has attracted a great deal of attention,
and no little bitter criticism by those who
differ from U views as to legislative policy
on the subject.
Mr. 31orrell has made his own way in
life by the force of a strong and honorable
character. A single glance at his counte
nance gives a vivid insight into his dispo
sition and purposes. You see that he is a
man that thinks for himself, whose plans
are always the result of reflection and a
sound practical judgment, and that when
entered upon are carried forward with un
swerving resolution. Probably in the
whole country there is not a person with
a clearer head for great business enter
prises than 3Ir. Morrell, and certainly
there is not one with more general infor
mation regarding the iron interest, bank
ing, and the political affairs '.f the nation.
Almost entirely self taught, he has en
riched his mind by the lessons of observa
tion and experience which have been af
forded in his varied c treer as a merchant,
manufacturer, banker and public man.
Mr. Morrell is somewhat portly, stand
ing erect, and showing a good physical
constitution. His head is round, with a
full face, and not over large regular fea
tures. He has small, observing ryes, iuid
altogether a cheerful and agreeable expres
sion of countenance. Intercourse with
him Is .".hvay.- of interest.

concerns, lie is uusgent in ins public du
