DEMOCRATIC AND CONSERVA
TIVE RATIFICATION MEET
ING IN WASHINGTON
Fellow- Citizens : I appear before you
this evening merely to speak a few
words of oordial endorsement of the
principles enunciated by the Democratic
National Convention, and of the nomi
nation of SeyraOur and Blair.
Wo are on the threshold of the most
momentous political contest of our na
tional history—one which will be an
epoch in our annals as marked as that
of the war for the preservation of the
Uuioui. VV * fought four years, sacri
ficed a miJijon of- Jives and four
billions of money, to establish the prin
ciple that th 6 Ctdhti is indissoluble.—
W e ltawe jd®w to I Jjopo
by (ho peaceful arbitrament of the bal
lot-boir, whctW we ' din fVfe’siL the
£orui<4-4jqvtriißK;nt bequeathed to-u* by
our fathers. The war was grandly sue
eessful. For thred years past there has
not hren, in the Southern States, an* arm
raised against the nati r.a’ authiri y;
for three years pbsC ouf internal fort's,
have beon dismantled, and the defences
along our Southern coast, erected to
guard against foreign invasion, no longer
domestic foes, have turned all their guns
seaward ; for three years past the com
merce of the great Northwest has fl )wed
down the Mississippi to the Gulf as
free as its waters flow. [Applause ]
The Southern people have not yielded
a sullen, reserved, or resentful submis
sion to the decision of the war. They
fought to settle a di-puted question of
construction of the Comtiiution, which
our .forefathers disagreed about, even
while ftaming that instrument, and
which they transmitted unsettled to
their descendants. 'I he Seu-th eleoted
to settle it by wager of battle, and, hav
ing lost in the arbitrament of the
sword, they have shown themselves
willing to accept and abide by its decis
ion. The war had scarcely ended.
when, hq .aTKerolmenta t*. 1 1 1 A1 !• .Slitifj
constitutions and laws, they formerly
renounced the ductiiue of secession, to
establish which they went to war; and
I chal enge successful contradiction of
the s’atenient that, since the year ISGS,
they have shown in every poasible way
their loyal adhesion to the Government
of the United States, and their absolute
and unreserved renunciation of the false
doctrine of secession.
Now, gentlemen, the war wa? for ni>
other purpose than t“ settle that dispu
ted question. We all recollect that
while it was going on the Donrerats
and Conservatives of the loyal Slates,
who furnished at least one half of the
men and money for its prosecution,
were apprehensive lest the Republicans
would do just that wwich they are now
doing—use, in violation of the Constitu
tion, the vast powers confided to them
for the restoration of the Uniou for
purpose? of party and sectional aggran
dizement. And you all remember how
often and how solemnly the Republi
can party repeated the pledge that the
war should be waged in no spirit ct op
pression, but solely to restore tho Union
with all the equality aud rights of the
The people of the Uuitcd S a*es
trusted these declaraiions and believed
them sincerely made. The soldiers
trusted them, and, therefore, risked
health and life, in the cause. I ask
any man who followed tho flag during
the war whe her he would have fought
to disfranchise and degrade the white
people of the South, blot out their
States, and subject them in serfdom to
rheir former slaves, and to destroy the
form of our national government estab
lished by the Constitution ? [Prolonged
cheer.ng, and cries of “never never ”]
If Jacobins in the Oapitol—who sat in
cushion cheer through-the war and filled
the quartermaster's and curaniisssry’s
and contractor’s departments with their
friends and relatives—who neyer saw
rebel tire except at Bull Run, and then
stampeded at the first fi >sh—had avowed
such atrocious purposes while the war
was going on; tho Union armies would,
after conquering the rebels, have march
ed on Washiogton to disperse these
usurpers as equally dangerous to the
Constitution and the Uuioa with the
rebels in arms. [Tremendous cheer
1 must, however, do - the leaders of
the Radical party the justice to say
that during tho war the most of them
sincerely intended to perform these sol
emn pledges, and to have the avowed
object of the war promptly accomplished
at its termination. But when it ended
they forgot their pledges and their pa
triotic purposes. They had not the
courage to restore the Union, with the
Doutbern States governed by electors,
I lest, with its restoration, the Republi
can party would lose control of the gen
eral government. As many of the Rad
icil leaders preferred, when the South
seceded, to lot it go in peace, in order
that they might govern the rest of the
nation, so at the end of the war they
chose to destroy the Southern States,
rather than have them return to shake
Now, fellow-citizens, no man could
have complained of tbo Republican par
ty if it had fairly iDed its power at the
close of the war, within tho limits of the
Constitution, for party edvantago. What
we have chiefly complained of is that it
has not only prevented reunion, but
has, by Congressional fiat, destroyed, or
attempted to destroy, the ten States we
fought to restore to the Union. [Ap
plause.] If they had only destroyed
the ten States, and left thorn as territo
ries, to be tostored in the next genera,
tion as States, their acts would have
bet;n tolerable. But, after de
stroying them, they disfranchised and
dUablod the whole governing talent of
tho South, and comm tted the political
destioie* of 'States to tho custody
of a race just emerging from barbarism,
through slavery, with whom wo cannot
commingle on terms of either stciil or
political equality. Our form of gov
ernment is one which can only exist
and flourish where the electors are in—
te.ligeut, and are, or mey become, ho
mogenous. If cootroled in great part
by electors grossly and hopelessly in
competent, of a race which can never
become one with us, we can not expect
the government to stand and prosper.
[Cries of ‘-that’s so,” and applause.]
While the walls of these black gov
cromeats are fjoing up they have to be
prjpped by Northern bayonets; and
knowing that the Northern people will
uot long keep an army in the South to
maintain them, Congroks has dow on
its anvil a bill by which Jhey will strip
our Northern arsenals of artillery, mus
kets sabres, and pistols, and give them
ta a black maliiia in the Southern State?
to sustain these' despotic governments
when the national army shall have been
“"ivVibfrTfiese usurped Stile govern
ments shall have been established, one
of hree resu'ts will follow : Either
they will fall by the fiat of the North
ern people in November; or the South
ern white men, by superior tact, will
through the forms of these <lcfacto gov
ernments, obtain control of them: or this
wlu.le scheme of tenons ruction will be
overthrown by the upheaval of civil
war—aye, a civil war which, if the
general government tunes sides v tlh
tire black man against the white, will
spread over tho North, and its ashes
may cover the ruins of the Republic.
Is Ihts the result our armies
fought ? Is this of which
General Grant talks in his letter? [En
thusiastic cheering ] Instead of having
the restoration ol the Union under the
oon3 itution, which was the only justi
fication nnd object of the war, tire Rad
icals give us this at rocious scheme,
big with threat cued disasters to the
Republic. [Apj lause ]
But the Republican party has not
stopped hr re. It has robbed the I’resi
dent of hts most ess; ruial constitutional
powers, so as to prac icaliy des'roy the
Executive as one of th# independent
co-ordinate department, taking from it
the power of passing judgment on the
constitutionality of the scheme of re
construction. Striking down ti.e great
est powers of the Executive and the
judiciary itGias broken from the
restraints ol.tho Uouflitutioo, and now
acknowledges no litiHt torts power, and
nr right tit n<>)’ other department to
j question it.
i ask, fellow-ci izens, whether we j
now live under the government formed
by our fore fathers—** government of
three coordinate departments, each
independent in is sphere, each a check !
on tho usurpations of the others ? No,
w« do not live under a Constitution,
but under a Congress which tramples !
the Constitution under foot, and is for
the time omnipotent.
Three vears after the total suppres
sion of the rebellion, the Radical party
gives us as the result of its rule, and
in return for the vast powers and treas
ures confided to it, a Union with ten ,
of the great States destroyed, and ten ,
St. Domingos erected in their stead ;
and in place of the beneficent govern
ment we inherited, it gives us a gov
ernment in which the liberties of the
States have been Swallowed up by the
central government, and the powers of
the other Federal departments swal-.
lowed up by Congress. In short, war
Lavo no longer the government of the
Constitution, but of a general atscmlly
—a form which in no nation has ever
lusted a lifetime—which is always be
got of tho frenzy and passions of revo
lutionists, and which has always been
swiftly followed and easily overthrow n
by tho despotism of a Cromwell or a
Napoleon, | Loud cheering ]
1 have been appealed to an hundred
times, as one who fought forth® Union,
to turn from the Democratic purty
and support flu: the Presidency the
leader of the Union armies. Gentle
men, it is because I love the Union and
the Constitution earnestly enough to
fight for them that I shall not support
Grant, hut shall supjiort Seymour.—
[Groat cheering ]
This is a contest in which the candi
dates presented for the suffrages ol the
people should be men of high states
manship. \\ bile I freely accord to
General Grunt all the homer due to his
patrjptic and successful career as a
soldier; while I atn not only willing,
but proud, to say that Dooelson,Ticks
burg and Mission Ridge will make his
name as a soldier immortal, I cannot,
in good conscience, assert that tiis statJ
papers place him in the front rank of
Statesmen. Asa soldier he will alwuvs
have the respect and honor of those
who followed the flag ; but as a zeal
ous supporter and inairarrtent of 4be m
tolerable and disloyal usurpations of
Cohgress. he is not enti led to the
trust or support of any man who wore
tbu bluo and still loves the Constitu
tion and the Union. [Prolonged ap
In Mr. Seymour wo have a candi
date who is a statesman and a patriot

arid in tearing and wh iho beneficent
Government under which this nation
has flourished for a century. I have
no fear of the result, lie will go forth
and advocate a cordial reunion of the
white people, North an ! South. We
will talk of the Southern people no
I longer as enemies, but as friends and
I brethren united with us in restoring
the Union and the Government of the
Cons itutinn. We wHI revive m> re
vengeful memories of trie war, but
rather grateful memories of the Revo
lution, of 181-, and of Mexico, in
which Northern and Southern blood
flowed on the same fields and on the
same side. Having, as Mr. Lincoln
J boasted, captured “Dixie,” to awaken
i no memories of triumph or defeat, but
I only prond recollections of the valor
1 displayed on both sties during the re
! beltion, and the renown and p wer it
! added to the American name through
out the world. We will carry the old
flag, bearing on it* folds no st»rS in

each equally luminous and effulgent,
and over the wreck of the Radical par-
and its usurpations we will restore
