Pastor bf the Tenth Baptist Church, Phila.
DR. JAcirSoß—Dear Sir:—l have freqnentlY,
been requested to connect my name with rec
omtuendations of different kinds of medicines,
but regarding the practice as out of my appro.:
priale sphere, I have In alt cases declined; but
with a clear proof in various instances,
and particularly in lky my own family; of
the usefulness of Dr. 11 Hoofland's German-
Bitters, I depart for once from myosual:
course to express my full conviction that, for
ileueral Debility of the System, and especially
for Liver Complaint, it Is a sale and valuable
preparation. In some enies it may full; but,
usually, /doubt not, it will be very beneficial to
those who suffer front the above cause.
- Yours very respectfully,J. IT. REN NARD,
Eighth, below Coates, SI.
FROM REV. E. D. FENDALL,
lissLitant Editor Chridinu Chronicle, Phihurn
I have derived decided bent flt from the use of
Hoofland's Gerronn Bitters, and feel it my priv
ilege to vcommend them as a most valuable
tonic to all who are suffering from General De
bility or from diseasev arising- from derange.,

SPEECH OF SENATOR HENDRICKS.
Hon. Thos. A.-Hendricks, United States
Senator from Indiana, upon his return home
from Congress, received a most enthusiastic
reception at the hands of the people of Indi
anapolis. A speech of welcome was made
by Hon. Jos. E. McDonald, and in response
to the loud calls-of the many thousands pre
sent, Senator Hendricks spoke as follows :
)111. urzinmess! sPELCII
It gives me great pleaQure,'after the ex
hausting labors of a protracted session of
Congress, once more to stand aluonF yon,
my neighbors and friends, and receive the
cordial welcome :with which you honored
me, and for which I thank you. The politi
cal atmosphere of Wa.shington is marky,
heated, and oppressive, but here the light is
bright and cheering, and the bremes are pure
and refreshing. Far removed from the great
political center,.you are not under its influ
ences, nor do you feel its power';' but inter
ested in the labor and business offthe country,
and through your children connected with
the great future, you have no scheme to de
vise, and no sinister ends to accomplish ;
you allow but one purpose and cherish but
one hope, the greatness of our country and
the prosperity and happiness of the people.'
Standing in the Capital of Indiana, I fuel the
throbbings of the plbpnlar heart, and bowbe

Midway in the march of time we have
'sprung up and grown to be one of the most
powerful nations in the world ; and in the
providence of God, we are blessed with a
form of government and system of institu
tions calculatekin a wonderful degree, to
promote prosperity and develop our great
ness. Upon us is devolved the duty and re
cumsiblitiv of maintaining our greatness and
preserving our institutions. Dees any man
shirk this duty or avoid this responsibility ?
Like the soldier who refuses to guard thq
camp, or falters in the fight, let him cover
his face in shame and flee from the presence of
man. It is your. duty, as it is mine,, with
calm sad honest minds- to Consider every
question that effects the public welfare, to
see that bad men are driven from power, and
that tiw public good suffers no harm. Of
the past and the present we must judge cor
rectly, that errors and evils may be avoided
in the future.
Traveling onward we have reached the
end of another political journey. Here paus
ing, let us review its scenes and incidents,
and decide whether-we shall pursue the same
or seek another road. For eight years one
political party has been in power, and one
class of men have controlled all our public
affairs. They now seek at your hands a con
tinuance of that power and a renewal of that
contra. If they have won your confidence,
' then cows:rine that confidence. If you ap
prove their conduct then endorse • it at the
election, and make it your own.

It is now more than three years since any
man with arms in his hands disputed the
authority of the United States. It is now
more than three years since any man upon
the land or upon the sea refosed to bow in
the preSence of the flag of our country. Dur
ing all these years we were entitled to peace,
with its attendant blessings. It had been
achieved in hurtle—it had been conceded in
surrender. Who have refused it, and why
has it been denied? Sweet and gentle peace
has been driven from our land, and cruel
discord and strife tave been invoked. By
whom, and for what end P
The Southern armiescufrendered in April,
1565. The war was then„cver. -But, in the
language of Mr. Lincoln, the practical rela
'tions of the Southern States 'to the Federal
r.. Mon was yet disturbed. ' When Mr. John
sen came in as President he took steps to
restore these practical relations, and tims to
restore harmony in all the framework of the
Goveatunez.t. That was in the spring and
bummer of 1665. The people .of . the South
a tcepted his policy. They amended their
imstitutions and modified their laws so as
to ifeclare slavery abolished, secession a fal
l= v. and that the Confederate debt should
nor,la , paid. They acquie.2(.!ed in the results
of th e war, and complied with :r
then made by the North. Quiet Od order
every where prevailed. The North was ,u O -'"
generous, and the South yielding and pa
tient. harmony prevailed between the
races. Hope revived, and reConciliatidn was
almost triumphant. As late as September,
11165, Governor Morton, speaking of the pro
gress of restoration, said :
"I desire, in the first place, to remark that
to me the general condition of this country
is most promising and favorable. I know
there arc those who take gloomy views of
what is called the work of reconstruction,
but to me the prospects are most 'encourag
ing. The war terminated suddenly, and the
submission on the part of the people of the
Southern States has been more complete and
Sadden than I had'cxpected."
Three months later, in a report made to
the President, General Grant said :
"Both in travelling and while stopping I
saw much and conversed freely with the
citizens of those States, as well as with of
ficers of the army who have been among
them. - The following are the conclusions
come to by me :
"'I am satisfied that the mass of thinking
men of the South accept the present situation
of affairs in good faith. The questions which
have heretofore divided the sentiments of the
people of the twosections—slavery and
States rights, or the right of a State to secede
from the Union—they regard as having been
settled forever by The highest tribunal—arms
—that men can resort to. I was pleased to
learn from the leading men whom I met that
they not only accepted the decision arrived
at as final, but that now The smoke of battle
has-cleared away and time has been given
for reflection, that this decision has been a
fortunate one for the whole country, they re
ceived the like benefit from itwith those who
exposed them in the field and in the cause.
•a' • a *
"My observations led me to the conclusion
that the citizens of the Southern States are
I anxious to return to self-government within
the Union as soon as possible.
"It is to ba regretted that there can not be
a greater commingling at tl4lii iit: i w t sv(aii
the citizens of the two sections, and particu
larly of those, intruz.:ted 'with the law -making
In his testimony before the Impeacluneut
Committee General Grant said :
"I knoW that immediately aux the close
of the rebellion there was a very fine feeling
manifested in the South, and I thought we
ought to take advantage of it ns soon as pos
Such was the condition of the South in the
fall of 18G5. We then had peace ; confidence
was being restored, and hope stimulated.
Trade was reviving, and Northern capital
sought Southern investment, and Southern
labor welcomed capital as its helpmate. The;
authority of law was absolute, and obedience
to it was general and cheerful.' Once more
the sections were reconciled, the people in
harmony and the States restored. You had
demanded of the people of the • South acqui
escence in the results of the war, and it was
yielded. In the most solemn forms that any
people can adopt, slavery was forever pro
hibited, the right of secession and the Con
federate debt were repudiated, and the Con
stitutional authority of the United States 're
cognized. What further demands did you
make as conditions of restoration? None
shatever. Did you then demand that the
nee-roes be clothed with political privileges,
and the white men stripped thereof in bufli
dent numbers to throw the political 'power
into the hands of the negroes? Whatever
yon may now demand under the authority
and dictation of party- leaders, you know
that yon made nosuchtlemand then. It was
in that hour of hope and bright promise,
when the work of restoration was nearly
completed, that the party leaders proclaimed
that it should not be ; that peace should not
remain ; that they had temis and conditions
to prescribe ; and that there should be no
pence, nor restoration, nor Union, except
upon their tcrms•and conditions. Then was
established that engine of evil and corruption,
the Freedmen's Bureau, which at the cost
of many millions to the people, served as a
political machine to array the black again: t
the white race, and through loyal leagues
and secret oath-bound organizations to eon-
solidate the negioes into a political party,
and arrayed them iu hostility to the w,hite
race, so that hatred and distrust prevailed
where harmony and confidence had been.
which has brought discord Ind strife between
the colored laborer toad his employer, so that
production has fallen off, and enterprise lan
guishes. The bureau tied the hands and
feet of the white men, and demoralized tlfe
negreea, and brought no good to either race,
and all at the cost of many millions to the
people. The army of its officers were clothed
ith ahnost military power; they stood he
tweet' the laws and the people, and dictated
w hat should be the state of society.' This
was the first step front a state and condition
of peace and harmony to a state of hostility
and strife. Then came the series of measures
known as the reconstruction acts, which,
putting away all dLeguise and making the
military supreme, established a state of hos
tility bordering on war. The governments
of ten States were stripped of their ancient
prerogatives ; their legislative, executive, and
judicial authority were trampled into the
dust; where the Judge sat a military officer
sits, and for a jury, selected front the plain
and honest people of the country, there is
substituted a board of officers, organized to
convict. Their proceedings and judgments
are not controlled by law, but only by their
pleasure. In one case the terrible practice
of the dark ages, the use of the 'torture, to
compel witnesses to testify, was resorted to,
and in another case, for the offense of aSsault
and battery with the intent to incite a riot,
the parties were banished—a mode of pun
ishment long since disused among civilized
When the ancient and honored writs and
proceedings of the courts, which have pro
tected the liberties of our race for so many
centuries, are suspended ; when the laws arc
silenced, and ten millions of people are gov
erned by the sword, it is not peace—it is a
state of hostility. Do you approve all this ?
Have you been made more prosperous and
happy by it ? If not, then place men in
power who will bring the fruits - rmd blessings
of peace. You can not look to General
Grant for it, because he has approved and
adopted all this policy by becoming the can
didate of the men,who established it. With
in a few days past the same men have passed
through the Senate a most dangerous act,
calculated, if not intended, to bring strife
and bloodshed. The section is as follows :
"SEc. 9. And be it further enacted, The'

under the laws thereof; and said muskets, i

the control of Congress.
It has long been the Policy of the United
States to distribute arms among the States,
not by special, but under general and perma
nent bws; but you Will observe that this
proposition is to distribute ir. extraordinary
numbers. The number of " tilled muskets
of caliber fifty-eight, with accoutrements
and equipments and complete," to be distrib•
uted under this bill, is two hundred and forty
-41.X thousand, and, at aeon dollars each, cost
the United States three million six hundred
and ninety thousand dollare. if nothing ex
traordinary and dangerous be intended be
this measure, why is the distribution of arms
in usual numbers, mid tinder the old law, not
allowed? You will :dee observe that thre ,
States are omitted—Virginia, - Xi - s-issippi and
Texas. Why that omission. They have
not reconstructed under the Congressional
plan, and according to a late law, passed
over the President's veto, are not permitted
' to take any part in electing the President
this Fall. Therefore it is not necessary to
arm the - partizans of Congress in those States.
You will also observe that the bill has the
furtherextraordinaly provisiou that the arms
and accoutrements are to be delivered only
to such companies as the Governor of thy:

cause and hatred of their late associates, are

and the negroes, are the• loyal element of
Southern society in the Congressional sense,
and to them the rifled guns are to be given.
The proposition to postpone the operation of
the act until-after the Presidential election
was voted down with derision in the Senate.
Thus it stands that, at the cost of all the peo
ple, immediately before a Presidential elec
tion, and with a view to it, one class are to
be arrayed against another class, so that they
may have the mastery and controL What
do you men say? Was it not enough that
by acts of Congress the political supremacy
was given to the negro, so that they not only
govern ten States, hut control the vote of

Must they also be brought into military or
ganizations and armed with the most formi
dable weapons of death, to drive or destroy
the race they are taught to bate ? With what
sentiments of horror will you be seized should
you, in the dark future,-come to know that

crushes the white race under a slavish fear,

Our purchases from abroad for the year
ending June 30,1806, amounted to $4:30,710,-
011; for the next year to $391,119,306, and for
the eleven months ending May 31, 1868, to
$319,1.0,403. This statement excludes im
ported goods that were re-exported, and
gives the foreign values in gold. Reduced to
-our currency value, gold at 140, our pur
chases were, for the year ending July 1,1866,
$603,088,037: for the year ending July 1,
1867, $547,567,434, and for the eleven months
ending May 31, 1868, $146,803,364. The ex
ports for the same period were, for the year
ending June 30, 1806, $550,684,268: for the
year ending June 30,1807, $438,577,312. and
for the eleven months ending May 81, 1888,
$421,823,006: The aggregate of imports, at
currency value, for these two years and
eleven months is $1,597,4-19,033, and the ag
gregate of our exports $1,411,089,195. The
balance against us for this period is $186,-
I suppose this large balance of $199 000,-
000 has been met mainly by sales of our pub
lic securities abroad. During the same
period, our exports of raw cotton have been,
fur the year ending June 30, 1865, $281,385,-
21.3. for the ending June :30, ltiti7, $201,-
470;123:and Jur the eleven months ending May
31, 11564, $149614,964, making an aggregate
of .$;(132,474,610. _For the same period the
export of tobacco was about $77,000,000, and
of sugar nearly 22,000,000. Above $700,000,-
000 of our exports since the first ofJuly,:lB6s,
have been of cotton, sugar and tobacco—
about one-half our entire exports, including
coin'and bullion. This statement shows the
vast importance of Southern productions to
the commerce of the entire country. With
out them the balance of trade must run con-
stantly and heavily against ns. A statesman
ship worthy this country, and adequate to
the necessities of our condition, will seek
every opportunity to foster and increase the
production of the great staples of trade, the
growth of the Southern soil. They are es
sential to the prosperity of our internal trade,
and' of our foreign commerce. The grave
and startling consequences which mnst re
sult from a failure to produce the staples of a
foreign trade in sufficient .quantities to meet
our purchases, appears in the fact that dur
ing the year ending June 30, 1866,we expor
ted coin and bullion $82,643,374 ; during the
year ending -June 30, 1867, $54,975,196, and
during the eleven months ending May 31,
1868, $71,934,:369, making an aggregate of
$209,553,939 of gold and silver withdrawn
from the country during a period of two years
and eleven months. During the same period
we imported of gold and silver, deducting the
re exports, $16,476,212, which leaves the loss
of gold and silver to the country during two
years and eleven months $163,077,891. We
cannot meet one dollar of foreign inbebtedness
with our papbr currency, and therefore, when
the balance of trade is against us, it is a con
stant drain upon our geld and silver. How
,can we endure this without financial
ruin? And when 'can we return to a specie
basis, if the specie be constantly withdrawn?
Our reliable remedy is in an increase of pro
duction, especially of those great staples that
command the foreign market Then the
specie will flow to our-shores in payment for
our productions ; then we will sell more than
we buy; and then, our financial difficulties
will rapidly disappear, and we will soon
stand upon a specie basis. To this-end we
want peace, reconciliation and harmony
Let mild laws, justly administered, take the
place of the false political philosophy which,
by strained and unnatural measures, seeks
ends that are not practicable. Let us have
stability of laws and policy; so that capital
can be securely invested and enterprises safe
ly undertaken and prosecuted. We can now
adopt the sentiment so familiar to you all :
"That whoever can make two ears of corn or
two blades of grass to grow upon a spot of
ground where only one grew before, would .
deserve better of mankind, and do more es
sential service to his country than the whole
race of politicians put together."
Nowthat the party in majority calls upon
you to continue its power, do you not wish
to know what it has hone with the immense
sums of money it has collected from you?
Prom: the 30th of June, 188-5, to the 30th of
June, 1868, the receipts in gold from the
customs* amount to $518,751,387,50, and in
currency from internal revenue $768,259,-
/15 94- 6 making in the whole $1,287,012,333,-
45. The interest on the public debt during
then. three years has averaged about $123,-
000,000 Der year—making $375,000,000. That
being decrscted from the sum collected leaves
about s9oo,too,ooo—beiug more than $300,-
000,000 per year. In a time of profound
peace, except to far as the Congressional
policy has created a state of hostilities, this
great suns of money has been expended in
legislative, judicial, executive and military
expenses. How has it been expended? Mr.
Buchanan was sharply censured for expend
ing so much as $80,000,000 per year, for ev
ery purpose of the Government, although a
costly military expedition was maintained to
ttalt. Why does it now cost $220,000,000
mor. , , in of the interest on the public
debt'? The Freedmen's Bureau has required
many millions in its support—the expendi
tures of Congress, for committees of investi
gation and other party machinery and favor
itism toward partisan newspapers have gone
beyond anything ever known in our history,
yet they are inconsiderable in comparison
with the entire sum. The greatest burthen
upon the shoulders of our people is our mil
itary establishment. The army as now or
ganized numbers, in ()dicers and men, not
exceeding filly-six thousand. :Yet the re
port of the Secretary of the Treasury, p.
shows ths expenditures of the War Depatt

lion dollars—more than the entire cost of the-
Government for army, naval and civil service,

HOW may the public debt be paid? Must
the payment be in coin, or may it be in
greenbacks? This is a question of grave im
portance, both to the holders of the bonds
and to the people. I know of but one rule
by which this question may be settled—the
contract as shown by the law under which
the bonds were issued must stand. Early' in

to introduce the following resolution in the
