From Thackeray's Cornkill Magazine
After years cf life together,
After litir and stormy weather,
After travel in far lands,
After touch of wedded hands,—
Why tlitis joined ?. why ever met?:
If they must be strangers yet.
-Stratigers yeti_ . • •
After childhood's winning 'rays...
-After care, and blame, and Kalil*,

After mutual prayers to'llea'ven,
Child cud paten', scarce regret
When they part—are strangers- yet
Strargers yet!
After strife for common ends,
After title of old friends,
After passion
.fierce and tender,.
After cheerful self surrender.
Hearts may beat-and eyes be wet,
Amid the souls be strangers yet.
Strangers yet !
Strange and bitter thoughts to scan
All the loneliness of man!
Nature by magnetic laws
Circle only touch when met,
Never mingle—strangers yet.

Spirits still impervious? -
Shall 'we ever fairly stand

Short vddresses were made by . several

was received with enthusiastic applause,
prolonged- for several minutes.

Mr. Briggs—He was.cheered .the next

of New York •
Mr. Greeley 'came forward amid loud
applause. He said :
Ma..ClumumAt.---Tke Past is dead;
let the dead bury it, and let its mourners,
if they till, go about the streets;' while
we devote ourselves
. to the living Pres;

Simply calling your attention to the stu
pendt:us developments of official fraud,
speculation, and t'f!eft recently made •be.

in,ton and in the Federal offices in this
city, L ask you to unite with me in this
sentiment :
" Resolved, That we rec)enize not one

Chairman and geiulewtn, shall pass'
very briefly ova-the firAt branch of this
sirbject„ because it has been 4o often, so ;
thoroughly discussed. I belieVe that ti! '
federal Administration that shall be hou..

all the controversy in relation to Slavery.
Give - us an Administration that shall be',
honest and' fair, and I aion't believe that
Slavery will every ger. another foot

Pass such, an infernal bill as they did last
Whiter in New-Mexico, catching a black
man and making a slave of him anyhow.
It is the Federal army contractors l and
office-holders who run the Legislature
there, and they passed that bill in order

We live under an AdininiQtration founded
in fraud. • They stoic the October election
tin PenusylvaLia, by
.which they gained
the election in .Tovent},er. They bought
Americans, and rum an American ticket
to beat .us. The men are now known who

You know how they are here. The
lea's Point-swindle Was one of the means
if paping off the men who furnished
money .to buy aftd bride through the
election in Pennsylvania; the Fort Snel:
ling swindle was another. Take the case
in. Indiana. A - leading politician the7e,
calling himself an Ante:en:an, had a claim
against the Indians for $40,000. In
Yolk's time is bad been examined, and
scouted. But he was promised that .
money in case he would tape care that:
Endiaoa NYetlt against . the Republicans.,
A gentlemen known as Live Oak Swift
of New-Bedford furnished a good deal of
money, and he had a large contract given
him ter white-oak timber, under such eir 7
cutostances as afforded no chance for
competition: .These were the - means by
which Buchanan came into power. It
we can't carry the election without resort :
to such means, I hope we shan't win it.
.[Applause.] If-there is to be another
four years of such corruption, I would
rather it should be Dentocratic than Re
publican. I believe if we rumour ticket '
honestly, the ' men who try to get up third
tickets will e marked and numbered.H
I heard a man say.that the 'delegates - le
the National - Unien or Constitutional.
Convention—Ll don't know which-‘—
[laughtel]—owned that their expenses
were by tae Deinocrats. The Dem.
uerats had to have an outside arrance-,
client to tell the storks. which it would
injure them to tell-;—such as tln:t about
Frennint beinga Catholic. We, of course,
shall have this tnacbinery'of a third party
runniog-to take votes front us and - give
then] to our opponents.. But I don't'be
lieve it will pay expenses. 'Who will
vote the Bell and 'Everett tickets here
The man had baiter vote direct the Dem
ccratic ticket. If an% budy gets up a Bell
and Everett ticket in this State, they ,
won't vote it themseltkis. Their votes,
will . ga plump for the Democratic ticket.
In the investigation now going on before,
the Covodc Committee, it appeared that. l i
Mr. McCarty, a large paper manufacturer,
who makes largo contracts -with the Gov
err:intent, paid Considerable sums of mon
ey to the Democratic party . in Pentisyl.'
vanii. And tb keep up the Straight
American party in Philadelphia, lie paid)
$lO,OOO. They got 500 or 000 votes
for it. And next time it won't -pay so
well as that. I believe that we have, by'
our notnittatiOn, got rid of the tbdiculty .
of giving a sort of excuse :o Americans]
to run a separate ticket. Sonic of tho:r
who have been Americans may be going
to vote the Democratic 'ticket ; but the
Bell and Everett ticket will be supported
by no honest man. it is run as a 5t0. , 1-;
pigeon ticket, and grown men; with their
eyes wide open, are nut going to vote it.,
It was .different in 1550. Then. I !mewl
hottest, good, faithful mam a ,. who really
believed diet Fillinoie was going to getl
the vote of this State, and ttcy voted,
honestly fur hint. But to vote the Bell
and Everett ticket to-day in the State of
New-York would be toe foolish fur any
man to be cauilpt. doing. We are, going
to have a straight forward issue this Fail,l
and while I doubt not the Slavery ques
tier* Will be presented, the irrepressible
conflict, between fraud and honesty in
Cioverowent will be still more important
than_ that. 'llia people have been over-1
taxed and overridden by fraud and ire-1

was repeated at the Douglas meeting. in.

cd to learn that there is no foundation
for the story Whatever. • It .was stated
during the: canvass between Lincoln and

thought the-"little•gidut" was in danger,
and it was: repeated by DouglaS bimseif
