WIZEN= or riov. GARY, _
On assuming the Duties of President of
the Oats Temperance Convention.
Governor Geary said :
Ladies and gentlemen of the Conven
tion—Fellow citizens: I rise not for the
purpose of addressing you at length on
this occasion. I will not insult the dis
tinguished and brill'ent minds around
me, by attempting to address you un
prepared. But as you have seen proper
to select me as your temporary presiding
officer, I rise more to thank you than to
make a speech.
When I look upon this assemblage
• and contemplate its - object, many
thoughts rush upon my mind. I see
here ministers of the Gospel, members
of the legal profession, intellectual men
—tutors of the laopulartaind. from every
section of the State, and I am happy to
greet you. Shall we inquire why you
have come here? It has certainly been
for no selfish object. Some noble im
pulse has doubtless guided you, and I
feel that our cause is a truly noble one.
You come not with arms and martial
weapons. You come in time of peace to
set a grand example for the young men
Of the country. You come in the cause
of temperance. (Applause.) You do not
propose to gain your object by forcible
means; but to snatch our brethren from
the dangers that surround them; and
that by reason and example.
Wiy, ley friends, we havejust passed
.thre gh eve years of war. Several
hut/tired thousand of our friends have
laid down their lives, and hundreds or
thousands are maimed for life. They
met the foe in . the field and conquered
him, and we now perceive a vast army
e ~neaged in another warfare. Mere than
half a million of our fellow-country
men are engaged in it, and the enemies
they are figlitingare themselves. Now,
we have come here to day to rescue thern
froni so baleful a fight—to aid and as
sist theta against the fell destroyer,
King Alcohol. (Applause.) When we
See so many of our fellow citizens daily
going down to a grave as ignoble as it
is horrible, it is a noble impulse which
prompts us to rescue them from them
We are daily doing our duty to our
maimed and crippled braves and devis
ing plans for their maintenance and
comfort, but those gall&nt men would
gladly see their friends and protectors
distributing a portion of their sympa
thiesand attentions among the millions
who are injuring their health, prospects
and reputation by the excessive use of
What is It that fills our asylums?
'What is it that fills our prisons? Our
almshouses ? Intemperance ! Three
fourths of the inmatesof our institutions
for feeble-minded children owe their
sad condition to inebriate parents, thti
verifying the Divine sentence, saying
that the sins of the father shall be visi
ted upon the children.
For my part, I do not deserve much
credit for being a temperance man. I
have been temperate from my youth
up. (Applause.) In all my life I. think I
have never used, medicinal or other
-wise, aquart in all, of spirituous liquors.
(Cheers.) 'When a boy I saw the effects
of drunkenness. At seven years I re
solved that I never would be a drun
kard, and Ineverh,sve been one. I nev
er acquired an appetite for drinking ;
but I have a heart full of sympathy and
compassion for those wfio do drink.
I will tell you more: Having passed
through very exciting scenes and peri
ods in my life, I have been able to go
through an extended experience with
s- aut even an apparent necessity for an
alcoholic stimulus. (Applause.) Called
to govern a large and wild district upon
the Pacific coast, I found no necessity
there for the use of ardent spirits. I
passed through the war of Mexico and
Of tbeßebellion without it. I wasn omi
nated (and you will pardon me for this
personal digression) to fill the guberna
torial chair of the Keystone State ; but
I' did not, thank God! buy my nomi
nation by giving men that which des
troys body and soul. (Cheers) Though
the canvass was exciting it was con
ducted on temperance principles, strict
and pure, and at may inauguration, I
am happy to say no whiskey was used.
(Cheers.) A new administration has
I just commenced, and I promise you that
-can arid will perform my duties with
. out-the useof intoxicating drink.—
(Cher:se ' •
Let us go forward, encouraging and
protecting the weak, to break down the
domination of strong drink in our State.
We are encouraged by voices from the
- capital of the nation. To-day I have
the glorious news to announce that Gen.
Ulysses S. Grant is about to become a
Son of Temperance. (Cheer u pon
cheer) With a full knowledge of the
activity and usefulness of that Order,
and ol„,erving, so many of its represen
tatives in my presence, I deem it a
pleasure to tender to you a hearty wel
come to this convention at the capital
Of our State, and to say to you is the
language of your beautiful ritual, "Hail
Sons of Temperance, and be that, name
thy Glory and thy Shield." Let us go
forward in the good cause. You have
the Congress of the United Sitatea, and
the State administration with you. Let
all the people join in the glad chorus of
a redeemed Commonwealth and nation.
Let our course be upward and onward,
until all the people shall rejoice, "the
morning stars sing together, and the
SODS of God shout for joy." (Immepse

A ForYTED ILLtSTRATION.—A corres
pondent of the 3.lilwaukie Sentinel says
that the following colloquy recently oc
curred between a noisy, brawling Demo
cratic politician and a quiet, observing
Republican. It hits the nail on the
head, and is too good to be lost ;
Democrat.—l demand to know, sir, if
the states lately in rebellion are in the
Union or out of the Unlo4. Just an
swer that if you will.
Republican.—The question is well
illustrated in your own personal history.
Four years ago, you united with the
church here: and, if I am rightly in
formed, you have been rather a hard
member to manage; and lately charges
have been preferred against you for
downright misconduct, and you have
been suspended until your case can be
examined, and your fitness for member
ship determined. Now, sir, I demand
to know whether you are in thechurch
or out of the church.
The Democrat appeared to see the
point and left.
The Internal Revenue Bureau has de
cided that a quitclaim deed, when giv

agreement or contract. It is only upon
conveyance of real estate sold that a
stamp duty is imposed. It has also
been decided that woolen yarn made

The Senate has rejected Edgar Cow
an, lately nominated for the Austrian
Mission by the President. Perhaps this
is the heaviest censure ever passed upon
any public man by . the Senate. It is
customary with that body when one of
its members is named for a*ace, to
waive the formality of referring the
nomination to a Committee, and con
firm at once. In this ease the nomina

COMPLETE REPUBLICAN VICTORY.
Once more the Granite State leads off

Her annual election, held on the 12th

He was the sole legatee of a tong line
of poor and virtuous ancestors, and had
preserved the legacy intact.
He was sitting amid a confused mass
of newspapers, some intact, but more
maimed with great scissor gashes and
pouring out their best blood for his ben
efit. He Was• clothed in raiment from
the slop-shop, his coiat was threadbare
and of many colors, his continuations
were splashed with printer's ink, and
his linen was flecked by the reflex ac
tion of the contiguous Inkstand. On
his countenance there dallied a smile,
and about his head there glowed a halo
of light filtered through a cobweb cur
tain and scintillating with motes churn
ed up by shuftling feet.
We saw him start; as if struck with
an inspired thought. He seized a pen
and wrote, and as ..his thought spun
from the pen point his countenance
glowed as if anointed with oil, and his
bosom heaved like the restless sea.
We peeped over his shoulder; He
was writing of the Millennial Hay ; of
its slow, stately, and augusl- approach ;
of the recession Of human meanness,
and selfishness I:fore it; of the retire
ment of malice, hatred, and' avarice to
their _eternal torment in the caves of

Man alone with his theme. We saw
him dip his pen into'the paste-pot, ab

his theme. Man, he continued, reaches
forward and takes hold of the time in

of shoes, No. 5; and please remember
that the flour.is out, and we want two
bars of soap, and a pound of tea."
" Anything more ?" asked the Happy
Man, with a benign smile.
The door closed, and the Happy Man
paused. Said he to his Thought: Da

a barrel of flour, ten pounds of sugar,
a gallon of molasses, a pair of shoes, a
pound of tea, a pound of starch, and a
steak, within the scope of twenty shil
hugs. At this point we saw the iron
enter his soul.
Slowly and painfully he resumed his
work, absently wiping his inky fingers
upon his brow. Physical needs, wrote
he, belittle and degrade the soul. The
thread of existence, Coates's best, and
two spools of No. 16,—alas here is

This, in a shrill tone, from a small
fiend, begrimed with ink and puffing a
short, stained pipe. The Happy Man
paused absently, fumbled in a pigeon
hole, and drew out a dirty scrap of paw

the demon - without looking at it.
" Under the head of ' Deferred,' said
he, grimly. " Double lead, and be care

The fiend grinned horribly, and van

Those who clamor loudest for a re
turn to specie payments, the N. Y.
Tribune, alone excepted, are the un
reasoning advocates of buying our cot
ton tknd woolen goods, our iron, steel,
silks, carpets, shawls, and various other
articles of consumption, in foreign mar
kets. Last year we imported of these
articles, into New York City alone,
$450,000,000 worth in gold. This was,
in effect, contracting a debt toEuropean
manufacturing interests of that amount,
which debt had to be paid in gold. The
candid mart.will at once see that we
can never pay the National debt, or re
turn to specie payments, so long as we
pursue a policy which requires our tra
ders to send our gold coin abroad, and
steadily oppresses the home manufac
. No country can prosper while it im
ports more than it exports. Our ex
ports from the port of New York for
1866, were less than $150,000,000, gold
value, less than 50 per centum of the
imports. This sort of trade is ruinous.
as may be seen by an illustration
,_.suppose that A .owns a farm of 200
ttc:res, adapted to the growth of bay,'
grain, and vegetables, the raising of
@keep and cattle. He raises 200 bushels
of wheat, ats2, that iss4oo ; and of sheep
and cattle enough to amount to $5OO
more. He settles with the merchant,
the blacksmith, the tailor, and shoe
maker, and finds the aggregate of their
bills to be $1000„ His receipts are 000.
Of course he is $lOO in debt, besides the
cost -of raising the grain, cattle, and
sheep. This man buys more than be
sells. How long will it be before 'that
policy will ultimate in a sheriff's sale?
Again B. owns a farm of 100 acres,
adapted to the growth of grain, and
the raising of cattle and sheep. He
raises 300 bushels of wheat, at $2, 500
bushels of oats at 50 cents, and stock
enough to come to $lOOO. That is $lB5O,
gross, and deducting.ssoo as the cost of
production, leaves him. $1,350- profit.—
His bills at the merchant's and else
where foi the year foot up $750. This.
man produces and sells more than he
buys and consumes, and has $BOO to in
-1 vest in improvements.
Now it does not require a Professor of
Political Economy to discover that B
will prosper the while A goes on 'nl
-1 nlng in debt. And the case of the in
dividual is the case of the nation. His
precisely the case of the man who, en
dowed with talents, never puts them to
any use; but employs somebody else
naturally less gifted, to do forhim what
health and economy requires that he
should do for himself.
We know that much is said about idle
ships and rottingwharves, in opposition
to a tariff for protection. But how il
logically it is said! Britain "exports to
us and to the world, more than she im
ports ; and how is it about her idle
ships and rotting wharves? She has no
idle ships and no rotting wharves, and
she never has been and never will be
an advocate: of free trade, Besides, is
the ship owning interest more en
titled to protection than another inter
ests? And if the commercial interests
can only thrive by the policy of buy
ing more of foreign nations than we sell
to them, is it policy to protect it at such
a ruinous cost?
But the truth is, we protect all inter
ests in protecting and fostering the pro
ducing, interests. Production is the
corner-stone of prosperity. Prosperity
cannot exist without it. Depress the
producer and you depress the country.
Buy more than you sell, and you offer
your farms and factories to the sheriff.
The laws of trade Inflict a penalty upon
any country which purchases what it
ought to produce.
But the consumer has to pay for the
protection afforded the produder.
this is an old allegation. Will some
free trader tell us who ought to pay it if
not the consumer? Who pays the profit
upon a pair of boots? The wearer. So
the consumer pays the profit upon
everything, and must do it, until the
eillenial day arrives.
A nation is a family. If by paying
twenty-five cents more for a print dress
pattern we can enable our home'manu
facturers to undersell the foreigner, it is
manifestly our policy to pay the extra
quarter. If by paying one cent per
mile extra for riding on :railroads built
of- American' iron we can shut out
British iron, it is policy to pay that ex
tra cent. Hy-and-by, with our resour
ces fully developed,we can ballast ships
with iron and Sell it in foreign mar
kets. It will take some years to accom
plish it, but the men who insist upon
doing all things as if chaos was to reign
after their death, can neverassist this
nation to stand alone and walk erect.

from the appearance of her shoes, it was
supposed she had been taken to the place
in a carriage. Her bonnet was perfor
ated by a bullet, but it had not pene
trated the head. It appears that, fail

PROM THE PRESS
The following editorial notices from the Tri
bune, Independent and Christian Advocate, ax
among the many newspaper testimonials which
we have received, but space will not allow to to
introduce more here :
The American White Wire Clothes-line, is a
superior article in its way. It does not injure
clothes, and is almost indestroctable. Every
housewife should use it. We are now using it.—
N. Y. Tribwee.
The Patent White Wire Clothes-line, is all it
purports to be—a moat indispensable article. It
does not injure the clothes, and never wears out.
Every house will ultimately have it.—S. I.l*
Tne Watre Write, CLOY - EMS LlTB.—Among the
special annoyances of the washing day are to be
reckoned high np the list the ill adaptation of
clog:tea lines. The old cord or rope has done
much good service; but what with its breaking,
totting out, discoloring the clothes, and the an
noyance of putting up and taking down eac h
week is not quite a perfect article. A substitute
is now offered in the " l'atentVichite Wire Clothes
Line." for sale by the American Wire Company,
149 Broadway. The peculiarity of this wire to
in its coating, which, it is raid, never becbmes
broken. We have seen it used, and llnd that it
