Great Speech of Governor Morton
4riaignment and Denunciation of the
Democratic Party.
A gpat Union meeting was hold in In
dianapolis on the evening of the 19th of
June, 1866. The meeting was hold in the
Masonic Hall, which was densely packed
with at least 2,000 persons. The street was
crowded for over a square from the hall.
At 8 o'clock the meeting in the Hall was
opened by Gen. George V. Chapman, Presi
dent of the Union Club, who said that the
opening meeting was called to place the
Union party squarely on the platform of
principles adopted by Congress, upon which
all good Union men must unite. After
prayex by Rev. Holliday, of the M. E.
Church, Gov. Morton advanced upon the
platform, supported by Colonel HolloWhy,
when he was greeted with a spontaneous
burst of applause. The Governor had
lately returned from Europe whether he had
gone for the benefit of his health. The Gov
ernor's int' oduction by General Chapman
was the signal for a salvo of cheers. We
have room only for a few extracts which
will give, however, a very fair idea of the
character of this powerful and telling
s ,each.
Every unregenerate rebel, lately in arms
againsti . his Government calls himself a
Every " bounty jumper," every " desert
er," every " sneak," who ran away from the
draft, calls himself a Democrat—Bowles,
Milligan, Walker, Dodd, Horsey and
Humphries, call themselves Democrats.
Every "Son of Liberty," who conspired
to murder, burn, rob arsenals and release
rebel prisoners, calls himself a Democrat.
John Morgan, Sue Mundy, Champ Fer
guson, Wirz, Payne and Booth, proclaimed
themselves Democrats. Every man who
labored for the rebellion in the field, who
murdered Union prisoners by cruelty and
starvation, who conspired to bring about
civil war in the loyal States, who invented
dangerous compounds to burn steamboats
and rivthern cities, who contrived hellish
schemes to introduce into Northern cities the
wasting pestilence of yellow fever, calls him
self a Democrat. Every dishonest con
tractor who has been convicted of a defraud
ing the Government—every dishonest pay
master or disbursing officer who has been
convicted of squandering the public money
at the gaming table or in gold gambling
operations—every officer in the army who
was dismissed for cowardice or disloyalty
calls himself a Democrat, Every wolf in
Iheep's clothing, who pretends to preach the
gospel, but proclaims the righteousness of
man selling and slavery—every one who
shoots down negroes in the streets, burns
negro school-houses and meeting houses, and
murders women and children by the light
of their own flaming dwellings, calls himself
a Democrat. Every New York rioter in
1863, who burned up little children in col
ored asylums—who robbed, ravished and
murdered indiscriminately in the midst of
a blazing city, for three days and nights,
called himself a Democrat. In short, the
Democratie party may be described as a
common sewer and loathsome receptacle, into
which is emptied every element of Creasing :
North and South, and every element of --
inhumanity and barbarian, which has did
honored the age.
And this party, composed of the men l and
elements I have described, in defiance of
truth and decency, asserts itself as the special
champion of the Constitution and the Union,
which but a short sixteen months ago, it
was in arms•to destroy, and proclaims to an
astonished world that the only effect ' , of
vanquishing armed rebels in the field is to
return them to seats in Congress and to re.;
store them to political poiver. . Having
failed to destroy.the Constitution by force,
they seek, to do it by reconstruction, and as
sume to have made the remarkable discovery ,
that the rebels who fought to destroy the
Constitution were •its true friends,: And that
the men who shed their blood aud' gave
their substance to preserve it iy,ere.its

those who fought against him, they will not
only forgive the fact that he was a Dnici'u
soldier, but will take him to their arms and
cover him with rewards, Just as the Devil
offered our Saviour all the kingdoms of the
world if he would but fall down and wor
ship when in point of fact the lyir_g
old rascal was only a tenant at will himself
andrhadn't a foot of land to give. How the
gallant soldier who perilled his life for his
country, and has returned maimed and shat
tered fro.n the battle, must feel dishonored
and humiliated when he finds himself treat
ed as a mere mercenary, and is approached
by Copperheads with arguments and tempta
tions which stain his manhood and insult
the memory of the dead who foil in battle
by his side, Themselves regarding office
getting as the sole'business of life, and that
governments were established only to pro- •
vide hungry politicians with lucrative pla
ces they are unable to conceive the idea of
the patriot soldier, who loving his country
more than wealth, luxury, and the comforts
of home, laid all these, together with his
life as a sacrifice upon the National altar.
The history of Indiana during the late re
bellion is peculiar, and differs in many im
portant respects from that of any other
State. During the regular session of the
Legislature in 1861, the Democratic mem
bers, with few exceptions, denounced the
Government with great bitterness, laying all'
blame for the conflict which seemed to be
approaching upon the people of the North,
and asserting that Indiana should not take
any part in it against the people of the South.
When, however, the war was begun by the
bombardment of Fort Sumter, the wave of
enthusiasm and patriotism which swept over
the land submerged all parties, seemed to
obliterate party lines, and for the time over
whelmed the factious and disloyal loaders.
At the end of six months, however the heads
of the Democratic leaders began to appear
above the surface, and a visible and vigor
ous effort was made to reorganize the party
upon the basis of opposition to the war, sus-
pending hostilities, and negotiating the re
turn of the rebel States to the Union by giv
ing them new guarantees for'slavery, and if
that did not succeed, permit them to go in
peace. Connected with this were exhibited
strong predilections for a Northwestern Con-
federacy, and it' was argued persistently in
their speeches and papers that the interests of
Indiana were exclusively with the slave States,
anal. whatever could ja3 Ives said to excite
prejudice and hatr toward the States in
the East.
The first convention held in the United
States after the beginning of the war was in
this city, on the Bth of January, 1862, where
in the Democratic leaders resolved strongly
that the people of the North were wholly to
blame for the existing conflict, and should
he compelled to do the South justice, which
would bring it to an end. During the
spring and summer of 1862 the treasonable
order of the "Golden Circle" was entonsivo-
ly organized in various parts of the State,
and the fact was presented by the Grand
Jury in the District Court of the United
States. The presentment was published,
but the truth of it was vehemently denied
by the members of the Order and its parti
sans every where, and the witnesses who
testified it freely charged with perjury.
During the summer of this year the Union
army suffered its greatest disasters, under
the command of :McClellan, on the- Penin
sula, and the rebels and their allies in the
North, flushed with victory, were excited
with brilliant hopes of final success in the
struggle. . The loyal men of Indiana, de
pressed by disaster, watched the progress of
the Light with intense interest, and spent
their time in recruiting for the armies and
providing for the sick and wounded, while
Democratic leaders gave themselves up
wholly to electioneering, the circulation of
slanderous documents against the Govern
ment, and spent their money lavishly in
every possible way to carry the election.
In this they were aided by Confederate
agents, with confederate funds, for it was
well understood by the government at Rich
mond that a great badlle for the rebellion
was about to be fought at the polls in In
diana. The election in October almost went
by default so far as the Union party was
concerned, and the Democracy succeeded by
a majority of nearly ten thousand in the
I State. No sooner was the election over than
it was given out in Democratic papers that
the military power of the State would be
seized out of the hands of the Governor by
the new Legislature, and that the Indiana
Legion, which had been organized for the
defense of the border, would bb dissolved
and deprived of their arms.
About the Ist of December it was discov
ered thatithe Order of the "Golden Circle"
had been introduced by the Demoeraqe poll
ticiane iiito'the camps in thiii city; and a
number of soldiers initiated. This created
the greatest alarm,koth here and in Wash
ington, and themost vigorous measures
were resorted to, to put it down and eradi
cate it from the army. The principal wit
ness who first divulged its existence in: the
camps, was soon afier missing and has not
been heard of since by his friends or faniily.
The session of the Legislature, .in January
following, was distinguished in the begin- .
ning . by the,most revolutionary and insult-.
ing measures.. The mesSage,i?f , the Gover

the Indiana Legion, and provided fc;r a new
organization which was to be under their
exclusive control. It is true it left to the
Governor the appointment of the Adjutant
General, but. it stripped this Adjutant Gen
eral of all 'tliiisOwer and transferred it to be
appointed by the few State officers. The
bill was in every feature in violation of the
Constitution of the State establishing a mili
tary provisional government, was intended as
a legislative revolution, and had it passed,
would have produced an immediate and bloody
civil war, It was put ahead of every other
important measure on the calendar, was put
through from one stage to another under the
gag of the previous question k and its final
passage was defeated only by the withdraw
al of the Union members of the House, thus
leaving it without a quorum. The very
pendency of the bill created the most intense
excitement throughout the State, and seri
ously threatened the public pence : and had
it passed the House no doubt was entertain
ed but what it would have passed the Senate.
In a few days the Legislature adjourned,
having made no appropriation to defray the
ordinary expenses of the State government.
The benevolent institutions, the peniten
tiaries, and other important matters, were
lelt wholy unprovided for, and it was con
fidently predicted by the revolutionists that
all these institutions would be suspended,
and the wheels of government blocked gen
erally, unless the Legislature was called
back in extra session. But in this, as in
many other things, they were bitterly disap
pointed. To call the Legislature back would
have been an act of madness which was not
to be thought of.,for a moment. The State
had just made an escape from revolution,
and the danger of it was not to be volunta
rily incurred a second time. The Governor
appealed to the loyal people of the State to
stand by him in this emergency, and ihiiy
did. Counties, banks, railroad companies,
private individuals and the President of the
United States came forward and amply sup
plied him ,with money for all necessary pur
poses, and thus the danger passed by and
the Government of the State wont on. In
a few weeks after, the country was surprised
one morning by the appearance in the papers
of an official opinion by Attorney General
Hord, to the effect that there was no law
authorizing the payment of the interest on
the public debt. This was a matter which
touched the credit of the State in a vital
part. There was the same law in force un
der which it had been paid for ten or twelve
years, and the money was in the Treasury,
paid in for that very purpose. But a sham
law suit was gotten up, smuggled through
the Circuit Court, and hastily decided in
the Supremo Court, sustaining the decision
of the Attorney General. All I will sPy of
that decision now is, that it. failed to com
mand the respect of any body, and was af
terward treated with open contempt by all
parties. But hero again there was bitter
disappointment, and " hope deferred" began
unmake- the Democratic heart sick The
Governor negotiated an arrangement with
the loyal house of Winslow, Lanier Co. by
which they came forward and paid the in
terest due from the State up to 1865, thus
preserving her credit and defeated the ma
chinations of her enemies.
During all this time the State authorities
labored without ceasing to supply the troops
called for by the President, but the task had
become ono of difficulty and labor. Through
the incessant exertions of Democratic lead
ers, and the fierce denunciations of their
press, the spirit of volunteering was greatly
weakened, and sometimes apparently des
troyed, but would again revive and go for
ward with success ; and the number of
troops raised in the State under the circum-''
BU - woks, and their splendid behavior in the
field, excited universal admiration. The
difficulty, however, in procuring volunteers
greatly increased in 1863 and 1864, as the
organization of the " Sons of Liberty " was
extended and consolidated and their hostility
to the Government and war became more
open and outhreakine
Enrolling officers were murdered, recruit
ing officers shot at upon lonely roads, numer
ous bodies.of armed men frequently assembled
performing military drill, and declaring their
purpose to resist the authority of the Govern
ment . Various schemes of insurrection and
murder were frequently formed in the secret
lodges of the order which fell through from
time to time, and others succeeded, until in
the spring and summer of 1864, a definite
plan of revolution was agreed upon, to the
execution of which all the energy and power
of the order in Indiana and the Western States
were to be directed. The arms and amuni
tion at Indianapolis were to be seized, rebel
prisoners at. Camp Morton to be released
and armed, and the combined force, after
dispatching the obnoxious Governor end
seizing thq capitol, were to march throtigh
thi3iState, raising the standard of revolt in
favor of the confederacy. But here again, a:
bitter disappointment was in store,: the
mighty secret could not be *pt. The arm
ing of the treasonable bands had been going
'on for two years, but the unexpected discoy
cry and seizure of a large quantity of arms
and ammunition in this city brought on an
explosion, and the prompt arrest, by Gen.
Holly, of a number of loaders, struck terror
into theirjanks, arid' 'suddenly brought to
an end the great conspiracy. 'When the

The Governor sat during the delivery of
his address and read his speech from man
uscript. Its salient points, and especially in
the stinging arraignment of the Democracy,
met with hearty applause.
At the close of the address he was greeted
with an encore of cheers, followed by three
for the Constitutional Amendment, upon
his own suggestion, and three for the success
of the Union ticket. The meeting was a
glorious Success as a grand ovation to Gov.
Morton, upon his first appearance since his
return from Europe, and worthy of his name
and fame—a tribute to his labors in behalf
of the State and General Governments.

Austin llopkin, a soldier whose mind had
never recovered from the effects of his life
at the Andersonvillo prison, committed
suicide, at Woosocket, R. 1., on Monday
The death of this man can be directly
aced to Jefferson Davis. Ho it Was who
inaugurated the hellish system by which
our soldiers were to be tortured lo death in
the prison pens of the south, Thousands of
our poor men died, and of those who were
rescued, ninny exist as physical wrecks.
But few have entirely recovered the health
they possessed before they were consigned to
the horrors of Anderson vine or Salisbury.
Now the author of all this suffering is a
‘. prisoner" in our hands, and how is he
treated? Is he fed on putnid meat and
corn-cob meal? is a dead line sot for him,
to approach which is death without warning?
Is he compelled to burrow in the ground fur
shelter from the cold of winter, or are all
trees removed that no shade may be afford
ed in the heats of summer? No 1 lie is
provided with dainty fare, and has almost
unlimited freedom. A comfortable room
with luxurious furniture is at his disposal,
and attentions are showered upon him from
all sides. The trump of the moire] no ton,
jars on his sensitive ears, and the hated blue
does not offend his vision. glad yet the re
bellious journals of the South, and their
subservient prototypes, the Copperhead
sheets of the North, almost daily picture
this Jefferson Davis as an injured man, res
trained of his liberty without cause, and
suffering untold privations. The men who
edit these papers defended the starving of
our men by the robeis ; what they say now
need not be repeated "Consistency, thou art
a jewel 1"--Press.
Mester Clymer said in his speech in
Reading, on the 18th, that ‘. his history as a
politician was the history of the State for
the past six years, and he would not to-day
alter a line or blot out a particle of it." Wo
are glad to notice that he is so frank. Let
us see what he did for the soldiers and sailors
on one or inure occasions while he was in
the State Senate. During the session of
1854, Senator Graham, of Allegheny, of
fered a resolution that the Senate of Penn
sylvania urge upon Congroce the propriety
of increasing the pay of officers in the army
and navy twenty five per cent, and of pri
vates, ono hundred per cent. On motion to
proceed to a second reading, the Demo
crats, with their leader Mr. Clymer,
tr - Oted in the negative, thus causing a tie
vote, and the motion was lost. At the same
session a joint resolution was adopted, re
questing our Representatives in Congress to
vote for and use their influences for the
passage of a law increasing the pay of non
cominisseoned officers and private soldiers,
but upon its final passage "Lester Clymer
voted nay. Subsequently, when the bill
regulating soldier's elections was passed,
Clymer again proved his consistency by
voting against it. And yet, with this roc-
Ord, of which ho now has the boldness to
say ho would not blot out a particle,' he
asks the soldiers and sailors to give him
their vote. The effrontry is only equalled
by that which prompted his organs to com
plain_that ho did not occupy a position in
the heroic lino which marched to Indepen
dence square on the 4th of this month, there
to deliver up their blood stained and shell
riddled colors.—Phila. Press.

He Preaches from the Parable of
" The Prodigal Son"—An Inter

July 6, 1866.
I preached last Sabbath, or rather tried
to, from the parable uv the Prodigal Son,
We had a splendid congregashun. I no
ticed a revival uv the work in this part of
the Dimocratie vineyard which reely cheers
me. The domonstrashun our friends made
in Memphis, the canin of Grinnel by Rus
so, and the call for a convenshun Phila
delphia, all hey conspired to comfort the
souls uv the Dimocrisy and encourage me
to renewed effort. It is bringing forth
fruit. Only ono day last week five North
ern men were sent whirlin out of this sec
tion—they dusted in the night to escape
hangin. leayin their goods as a prey for the
reightous—six niggers hey bin killed and
ono Burow officer shot. Trooly there is
everything to encourage us.
The house wuz full. Tho weather wuz
hot, and the pleasant incense uv mingled
whiskey, tobacco and snuff which ariz wuz
grateful to me. The sun shone in on Deek
in Pogram's face oz he gently slept, and
When the sun hits him square I kin alluz tell

from those around him.

a order for a soot of clothes, and a pair uv
boots, and put a ring onto his finger, and

fatted calf wich he had saved fur another
My friends yoo kin find in the skripture
sunthin applicable to every occasion, and
this parable tits the present time like a
ready-made coat. The South is the prod
igal son. We went out from our father's
on an expedition which hoz'nt proved alto
gether a success. We spent our share uv
the estate, and a little more. We run
through with our maims, and hey cum down
to rags, and dirt, and filth, and hunger.
We are, and hey bin some time, a chawin
husks. We run out after them twin har
lots, Slavery and State Rights, and they've
cleaned us out. Our pockets aro empty.
No more cloth the pleasant half dollar jin

wallets is barren uv postal currency, and the
grocery keepers mourn and refuse to be com
forted becoz we are not. We hey got to the,
husk stage of our woe, and wood be tendin
hogs of the armies which past through these
countries hed loft tiQ any. We hey cum
back. In rags and Art we hey wended our
way to Washington, and ask to be taken
back. Now why don't our father, the Gov
ernment, fulfil the skripture ? Why.don't
it see us afar oil, and run to meet us ? Why
it don't put onto 1.14 a purple robe? Where's
the ring fur our finger, and the shoos for our
feet? and Where's the fatted calf he ought
to kill? My brethren, them Ablishnists is
worse than infiddles —while they preach the
gospel they won't practice it. For my part,
At this point a sargent belonging to that
infernal Burow, who wuz in the awdionce

word in explanation uv that parable, ex ap

church triumphant." And, cockin his

pensashun.— Toledo Blade.
Just before the declaration of independ
ence, a Yankee pedler started down to New
York to sell a lot of bowls and dishes he had
made of maple. Jonathan traveled over the
city, asking everybody to buy his wares, but
no one was disposed to purchase.
It happened that a British fleet was then
lying in the harbor of New York, and
Jonathan struck upon a plan of selling his
dishes. He got a naval uniform, by hook or
crook (for history doesn't tell where he got
it,) and strutting up town one morning,
asked a merchant if he had any nice wooden
ware, as the Commodore wanted a lot fur the
no merchant replied that he had none on
hand, but there was come in town and if he
would send in the afternoon he would sup-
ply him with pleasure.
" Very-good," said our naval officer, "1
will call then."
Jonathan now cut for home by the short
est route, and had scarcely doffed his bor
rowed plumage, before down came the mer
chant, who, seeing that Jonathan had sold
none of his wares, offered to take the whole
if I; would deduct fifteen per cent. But
Jonathan said he'd be gull darned if he
didn't take 'ens home, before he'd take less
than his first price.
he merchant unany paid him Gown in
gold his prico for the wooden ware, which<
lay on his shelves for many a long day
ereafter ; while Jonathan trotted home in
high glee at the success of his manoeuvre,
while the merchant cursed British officers

The war in the Caucasus (1839-60) cost
the lives of 330.000 ; Anglc-Indian war,
(1857-59) 196,00 J ; the Russian and Tur
kish war, (1828-1829) 293,003 ; the Polish
insurrection of 1881, 190,000; the civil war,
of Spain which raged from 1833 to 1840, to
172,000 ; the war of Greek independence,
(1824 29) to which Lord Byron fell a vic
tim., 148,000; the various French campaigns
in Algeria, from 1830 to 1840, 146,000 ; the
Hungarian revolution, 142.003 ; the Italian
war of 1859-60, 129,874, which last number
may be thus analyzed : 96,874 fell on the
Held of battle, and 33,010 died of disease ; of
which 49,664 were Austrians, 30,220 French,
26,330 Italians, 13,101 Neapolitans, and 2,-
370 Romans. A curious result may be de
duced from the above—namely, that agreat
er number perish by the disease incident to
a camp life than are actually killed by shot
and shell or any other engine of destruction.
As to the sums of money swallowed up
by these wars, it is impossible to arrive at
anything approaching a correct calculation,
The Crimean war cost Russia 2628 millions
of francs (ono million francs, £10,000), 1,-
- 848 millions Eng'and 1320 millions, Turkey
1060 millions. Austria, for more demon
strations, 470 millions. Thus in two years
and a half 6526 million francs were spent.
The Italian war 01 1859 cost France 845
millions, Austria 739 millions, Italy 410
millions. Thus, in two months,'l4sB mil
lions were swallowed up.
EFFECTS OF M. ATRINIONY. --It is generally
admitod by physicians,, that matrimony if
not entered into too early, is conducive to
health and long life, the proportion of un
married peranna attaining groat ago being
remarkably small. Dr. Rush says That in
the course of his inquiries ho , met with only
ono person beyond eighty years of ago who
had never been married. An English writer,
however, mentions a Mrs. Mahon, who died
in 1723, aged one !Mildred and five; Ann
Kerney, who died the same year, aged one
hundred and 'ton; Martha Dubridge; who
died iff : l7sB aged ono hundred and four, all
of whore were single persons who hadnever
been married. The cheerful •and, cblitented
are certainly more likely 'to enjoy' good
health and long life than , persons of irrita
ble and fretful dispositions; so far, therefore,
as marriage serves to increase the happiness,
it may servo to lengthen life. Unhappy
marriages, for 'an obvious reason; Inuit
shorten life.
