AVe subjoin an extract : "I have felt that self respect and pro priety torbid my entering the political arena to analyze, discuss, and criticize the principles and policy of those arrayed against us. 1 will not deny that I have thus longed to speak in this campaign, but I have felt that when persons are selected for the two highest offices in the nation, as they, are indeed .ihe-highest in the world, that a sense of propriety should re strain them from bitter or personal attacks or criticisms ou the position and character of opposing candidates. Whatever, there fore, others may do, I must be faithful to my own convictions and avoid such a course. In regard to the principles, poli cy, platform, and letters of the Democratic candidates and party, my lips are sealed. IJut there is one subject on which my lips are not, and never can be, sealed, until they arc sealed in death, and that is the glorious record made by the noble Itepub lican party. That record will stand for ever, written in letters of living truth and rht, on the most brilliant page of our country's history. Of this record I can ieel and say, as 30U can let posterity read this, and let posterity judge. Oh, what a record it is ! When this country was racked to its very center by the shock of contending armies ; when the degener ate sons of the country raised their rebel lious hands against our flag ; when men proved themselves unworthy of their birth, and sought to trample in the dust that banner of beauty and trlorv : when thev sought to make it the winding-sheet of the world's hopes, there was one party among whose nuuiber3 not a single man was un faithful to the Constitution and flag, and that was the Republican party. Where, I ask, would have been the country to-day if there had been no Republican party ? 'ou would not have had left a couutry to be proud of. Our country, lives, because we glared to stand up and say that the last man and the last dollar shall go, if neces sary, to put down this infernal conspiracy. We knew this war would build up a large public debt, and we knew that tax laws must be passed in order to pay it. We knew these things were unpopular, but we said it is necessary for the salvation of our .dear land, and must be done. We said we will vote for these tax bills, for only by them can our banner be kept flying in the field. I do not speak to-day to gain votes. It would be unnecessary, if I was disposed to do so. The result of the elec tion is just as certain as if the votes were already counted out in November. "When the time came, in the progress of the war, that conscription was necessary, we knew how unpopular a draft must be ; but our soldiers were dying from sickness in hospitals, and being shot down by rebel bullets, and we found this was the only way to keep our ranks full. We had but one motive, and that was to save our coun try ; and we said that our vote shall be recorded in favor of any and every law necessary to crush the rebellion. We took the responsibility, and the country was saved, and you rejoice over that salvation to-day, and do not regret that the essen tial means were used. Wo had to levy internal taxes to. pay the public debt, but we are reducing the taxes every year, un til we will tax luxuries and imported arti cles only. The time will son come when this will be sufficient to meet the wants of the Government. This is not all, but is I WOULU BATUKK iJB K1U11T KKSIUliiRT. MEHRY (JUT. enough to crown with eternal glory and honor those -who dared to stand in the gap, to risk all for the salvation of the country. "But that is not all. Oh, no. Let us look still farther at the record of this party. l"ou know how, for years and years, we hid our faces in shame because of that greatest of all disgraces, American Slavery. When that institution, the sum of all vil lainies, had plunged the country into a terrible civil war, after three years of for bearance, Mr. Lincoln issued his procla mation declaring if the Southern people continued to murder Union soldiers a hun dred days more, he would strike the insti tution with the battleox of therwar power, and shatter it from turret to foundation stone. We Ptood by him unswervingly in that exciting contest. Do you not remem ber how . faithfully every one of you Re publicans stood by our noble and martyred standard-bearer ? Do you not remember how we were denounced for it, and had in vective and calumny heaped upon tis with out stint j how we were called fanatics and negro worshipers, and accused t)f making war to free the negroes, and not to save the Union ? In Congress, on. the stump, through the press, our enemies endeavored to overwhelm us with the tof rent of calum ny. Rut, inspired by the same devotion to liberty and Union which inspired our fathers in the Revolution, you persevered, unawed, unchecked by the tempest of in vective that raged nround you upon every side, and at last you triumphed Tou blot ted the stain fiwiii the national escutcheon, and at last you cvi'd stand up in the great Republic, and proclaim, from the hundred harbors of 3Iaine to that far distant Pacif ic State whose foam is amber and whose sand is gold, throughout the entire domain of this vast Republic, that there was not a single man who could stand up and call hiniBelf master, nor call another man his slave. This, fellow-Republicans, was your work, and of this you should be proud, as one of the noblest legacies you can trans mit to your children. In this great act of justice and liberty you have been honored by the world ; and I sincerely believe ap proved by Almighty God. Where are the men now who pointed the finger of eorn at you, and who filled their mouths with revilings at you, because you dared to strike at Slavery ? Not a tongue of these men dare to wag now ; they are silent cs the tomb, every one of them. You and I shall pass away, but what we have accom plished shall live in all future history, and brighten under the eyes of posterity. As age after age rolls away, your children's children will rise up to call-you blessed, because in the midst of civil war you dared to strike down th's cursed institution of Slavery : because despite the slanders that were heaped upon you, you L mi.shed Sla very forever from this fair Republic of ours. Do you wonder that my heart throbs with unutterable pleasure when I think of this, our glorious work? Rut we have still another honor in connection with this work. We had a noble President, faithful to duty, faithful to the country, faithful to the Constitution, and faithful against the Rebellion. You well remember how all the elements of party bitterness were let loose upon him ; how slander, aad abuse and calumny were heaped upon him, and finally how he fell,"pierced by the bullet of a rebel assassin. Noblest of the Presi dents since the days of Washington, he was denounced its no President ever was reviled, and yet he reviled not again, but pursued his line of duty unflinchingly to the end. Supported by a noble patriotism, his course was true and faithful to the day he wa3 numbered with the dead. Dead,' did I say ? He is not d3ad. His is one of the few of the immortal names that were not born to die. He lives to-day among the noble martyrs to liberty, justice and humanity, and in the recollections of the dark-browed race he lifted from Slavery to the full stature of manhood It is with pride that we look back upon the fact that we stood by him when the storm of war raged around him. We feci proud that we stood firm in the cause of justice and manhood against every wrong and oppres sion. To-day we feel proud that we have saved a nation and emancipated a race, and to-day we follow our great standard bearer, the hero of the country,. U. S. Grant. Brave in battle, generous in vic tory, reticent in speech, yet firm as the eternal granite in principle, and upon whose banner these magic words are in scribed : "Let us have poacc They are four words onlv. 1 at a volume is con tained in them. If there is a country in in the world that wants peace, it is this American Republic. We have passed through a severe struggle for national ex istence. No land ever was required to make such sacrifices as oursT We had 'to heap up golden and living treasures upon cur country's altar ; the noblest and best went forth to prove their devotion to the flag of our lathers. Now, in the language of our leader, let us have peace. We want no more taxes ; no more drafts ; no more carnage, and bloodshed, and desolation. No ; no. When we reflect that this Re bellion is only to be remembered in broken hearts, numberless graves, and enormous debt, we can all say we want no more war, but we want loyalty to be triumphant, and we want peace through justice, liberty, na tionality, and security to all. Are we go injr to have them? f"Yes. when wc elect Grant and Colfax." Yes j there is one 1 man who commanded peace, who struck down and drove those who-waged war into the last ditch, and sent them home as-paroled prisoners of war. ' " When he becomes President, whenever treason dares to raise its head he will strike . it . down. Every man who ' dares to raise his 'hand against his fellow-man will be -met with the stern power of the Government. Grant . will give protection to all through the nation's strength. This is what Grant intends to do, and what he believes the duty of the Executive, as I know from his own declar- ations. . These Ku-Klux outrages must cease.' You -remember in 18G0, eight vears ago, there were threatening in the j J " - rebel ; you did not believe it then, but it was a stern reality. - Do you know they are better prepared to-day, than they were then ? They didn't then have this organ ized Ku-Klux Klan, the existence of which has been denied j but no man can deny it now. No man rises up to deny what Forrest has acknowledged, that this is a powerful and armed organization ready to do its work. In 18G0, you know, men dared to stand up in the South" and de nounce Secession, and declare their devo tion to the Union ; now no man can do so without being in danger of his life. -Speakers in the South teach people to os tracise those who speak in defense of the Union. This you know is the case now, and that it was not eight years ago, be fore the Rebellion was organized. These outrages are encouraged by the men who then controlled these States, and thereby organized the Confederacy, and raised the armies of the Rebellion to crush the Un ion ere is only one party that stands up to-day against this wicked, proscriptive, and murderous sentiment in the South, and; that is the glorious Republican party of the country. Wc have said the power shall not be put back, into the hands of these men, the executive, legislative, and judicial power of these States to use as they used that same power eight years ago tn raising armies to destroy the nation. The Republican party is the only bulwark against this state of things being repeated. When you see, in the South, the newspa pers, which express public opinion, speak of Union men, who have lived there all their lives, as scalawags, and when they speak of the brave soldiers and others from North who have gone down there and set tleij.iiS they had the right'to do, and call them carpet-baggers ; and when you have seen their threats, in the form of a wood cut representing a gallows on which to hang, after next March, those they call carpet-baggers and native scalawags ; when you see the attempt to put those States back again under the power and control of Rebels if you consent to it, I say, then I say you are not worthy of the blood of the brave soldiers that died to destroy that power and to enthrone loyalty in its stead. A voice, "They will never get it." No, never, while God reigns in heaven. He sustained us and our country in the dark est hours. He never saved our flag that it might be surrendered back into the hands of those who sought, though inef fectually, to destroy it. He has prospered us as a nation as no other laud was ever prospered. He has saved us from perils such as encompassed no other nation be neath the circuit of the sun. He gave victory to loyalty on the battle-field, and He will give victory to loyalty at the ballot-box. If we deserve it, Ave shall have peace j we shall have protection to every American citizen, South and North, at home and abroad ; and with this, we shall havo stability, progress, and power, and the grandest march of any nation in an cient or modern history. We shall rec- j ognize the immortal principles of the Declaration of Independence, the baptis mal vow of our fathers when this Republic was born into the family of nations, guar teeing equality in life, liberty, property, and protection to all whom God created. To secure this, we have only to plant our selves on the eternal rock of right, as we did when we arrayed ourselves against the wrongs of Slavery. He converted what was intended as a crusade of Slavery into an onward march for Liberty, and you have heard, ringing all over the Republic, 'Proclaim liberty throughout the land, to all the inhabitants thereof.' We shall triumph, because wc are striking ior the right. We shall triumph, because wc are inspired by the noblest principles that ever animated a party. We shall tri umph, because we are faithful to the hon ored dead, over whose graves unrepentant traitors have dared to repeat their treason. Thy did not give their hearts' blood to relinquish these States into the hands of those who murdered them for their fideli ty and loyalty. They went forth from loving wives and happy homes to extin guish the embers of rebellion, never, as they hoped, to be rekindled. It seems to me they must, turn in their bloody shrouds to-day as they hear over their graves the threats of the men whose power they struck down. By all the memories of the sainted dead, by all the blood shed so freely, by all the sacrifices of the nation, I appeal to the thousands who stand be fore me to so speak that the world shall hear that the American people will not welcome unrepentant traitors to their Cab inet to rule this country, nor to their Congress to make laws to govern the wid- ows and children of the men they slew 15, 1868. upon hundreds of battle-fields, and every friend of liberty throughoutthe world will rejoice as he hears the mighty voice of the people proclaim that loyalty shall govern what loyalty preserved." Benedict Arnold and Seymour. Ilorado The following article is reproduced from the New York Times of September 19th, 18C4. It is a irood statement of the simi- ! larity of views as shown by the exprea- sions of --Mr. Seymour and Benedict Ar nold, and makes good reading at the present time : ' '7" Benedict Arnold, on the 20th day of October, 17bl, i?sued the. following : "Proclamation to i7ie Citizens and Soldiers . "of the United States : "You are promised liberty by the lead ers of your affairs, but is there an indi vidual in the enjoyment of it, saving your oppressors ? Who among you dare to speak or write what he thinks against the tyranny which has robbed you of your property, imprisons your sons, drags you to the field of battle, and is daily deluging your country with blood ? 4 Your, country once was happy, and had the proffered peace been embraced, the last two j-ears of - . L it ' ' ti misery nau ueen spent in peace and plen ty, and repairing the desolations of the quarrel ; that would have set the interests of Great Britain and America in a true light, and cemented their friendships. I wish to lead a chosen band of Americans in the attainments of peace, liberty, and safety, the first objects in taking the field. What is America but a land of widows, orphans, and beggars ? But what need of argument to such as feel infinitely more misery than tongue can express ? I give my promise of the most affectionate wel come to all who are disposed to join me in measures necessary to close the scenes of our afflictions, which must increase until we are satisfied with the liberality of the mother country, which still offers us pro tection and exemption from all taxes but such as we think fit to impose upon our selves. Benedict Arnold. "October 28, 1780." Now, we defy any man to make out a more complete model of a Copperhead ha rangue in 1864. Take any of their set speeches in evidence. - Benedict Arnold .makes eight points against the Continental Congress and Washington, the Commander-in-Chief: 1. That freedom of speech and of the press has been taken aways 2. That property has been appropria ted. 3. That illegal imprisonments have been made. 4. That odious conscriptions have been imposed. 5. That peace which might have been had was refused. 6. That the first objects in taking the field have been abandoned. 7. That the country has been deluged with blood and made a land of widows and orphans. 8. That it is necessary to join them, in order to close those afflictions and return to prosperity. Horatio Seymour, in Milwaukee, like wise (using his own language) makes the following points : 1. "The freedom of speech and of the press has been denied us." 2. "It is your property, the property of Northern taxpayers, which is confiscated." 3. "Men have been torn from their fam ilies, and locked up in prison, and women also." 4. "Men are told that they must leave their homes and devote themselves to war." 5. "The policy of the Administration his placed hindrances in the way of the Union." G. "The Administration has entered upon a settled policy dangerous to the wel fare of the couutry." 7. "In God's name, are there no means by which we can save the lives of hus bands and brothers ?" 8. "We nominated McClelhm that we might restore prosperity and peace to the people." Thus are the points made by Horatio Seymour against the Administration in 18G4 identical, point with point, with those made by Benedict Arnold against Washington and the Continental Conirress in 1780. Wc see precisely what Mr. Sey mour meant when, toward the close of his speech, he asserted, "our views came from our fathers." They are the views which the Tory fathers, through their executor, Benedict Arnold, bequeathed to their Cop perhead offspring. The truth is that Treason, and its twin brother, Faction always speak substantial- lv the same lanuacre, onlv iust so much altered as to suit the particular cireum stances of each time. Ths human luvirt i is ever the same, and so are tha prime tie- ; ments tint move human affairs. As lung as there is malice in the human blood, t Government can be without its renecrades and malcontents; and these are always j ready, Judas-like, to seize upon ever)- oc- casion of offense. No matter what the ! conduct of the Government may be, or j however enforced by necessity, spite will assail it, and often too on very plausible grounds. Every condition of civil life has its bur dens and evils, and it is always easy for the malicrnunt to turn these to their own " I 'i.OO I!V ADVAXCK. NUMBER 10. account. The state of war crr-P'-iaHy - this facility. It, of necessity, in vofv -great expenditures of treasure and bio and is attended with suffering in aim every variety of form. Moreover, ti: Executive head of the nation, in ord :r to prosecute it with effect, must 'be entrusted with uncommon powers, and these powers must be exercised as well against the se cret foes behind as the armed enemies be fore. These have been the concomitants of every great war since time began.. The fact that the war is just, instead oliif-r'J ing relief from them, only makes them th -more rrnavoidable,' as it makes- the -'success of the war a greater necessity. ,.. Nobody supposes that Horatio Sdyinotr , though lie imitates Benedict Arnold closely, deliberately is courting the sx of posterity. Yet the polif icalleaders v do the work of faction when the coir : . is in danger, never have been forgic-:; and never will be forgiven, by the Air..-, can people. The Copperhead cbiei,-' these times, who draw so lavishly up i : : sophistries and fallacies of 1780 f r furtherance of their factious designs. not too well understand that the seque: all this is endless disgrace. They u:u not expect to fight the Government v the weapons of the Tories and of tic V light Federalists without sharing the su fate. i:vci j tiling Going Right, The following incident occurred at City Point geneal hospital : On one of the hottest days in August, Gen. Grant rode up to the commission headquarters, City Point, and asked for a drink of water. A cup of lemonade sweetened with brown sugar was handed him, with the apology that they had no water, and the lemonade was just such .-is they gave the men in the hospitals. The General drank it with great apparent r-1-ish, and declared it could not be beti-er. Asking for the accustomed "licht," h. was just about mounting his horse when a negro employee, without hat, coat. . vest, elbowed his way through the cr and reaching out his enormous hand. - : "He de do, Giu'ral Grant ?" The words were spoken with gentle. .: ly deference, and the man's whole app. fi ance indicated that he had not Ikjvt; attracted by mere curiosity. The Genera shook the progerod hand warmly. The man then disclosed the purpose of his ap proach : "How am tings goin', Gin'ral ?" To appreciate the question, it must be remembered that it was a time of great depression among the colored people -not long after the fatal mine explosion in front of Petersburg. The simple answer of the General at once quieted the man's fears "Everything is going right, sir." . Politely bowing his thanks, his ev meantime beaming gratitude, the nei backed out of the circle and returned i. his work. . Before a great while, the General's s. tence was known to all the coioiJ. ,e li near City Point, and it was a-'t-nishig observe the effect which the siirpie v.'. r-.: had in reviving the spirits of those who few hours before had been so depressed and disheartened. Kino William of Prussia is not lavish on personal apparel. His valet recently gave him a hint, by substituting a new' coat for one which he had worn mueli longer than he ought, and was thereupon summoned to the royal presence. "Whorrf is my old coat, Jean ?" "I have taken : away, j our majesty j it is no lor.ge; fit t j be worn." "What are you going to d with it, Joan ?" ''I believe I am going t sell it." "How much do you think you wi. get for it ?" This was hard to auswo: for no clothes-seller in the world wou. ' have given sixpence for the old coat. Jean, therefore, hesitated a moment, . -then answered, "1 believe T shall g tab a thaler for it, your majesty." The k took a pocket-book from the high-t; opened it and lumded Jean a thai- -"Here, Jean," he-said, "is your thai. That coat is so comfortable. Bri--., . back to me. I want it yet." A LADY riding in a car on ttv -York Central Railroad was disturb' '. her reading by the conversation w. j-oung men occupying the scat before One of them seemed to be a stadenf some college, on his way home for a v -tion.
