music to a ciowdedaudleiioe. The stage was
tilled wild white people , whllo tlm body of
the building and thegallcties were occupied
by colored people , the outskirts of the crowd
being fringed With whlto people. Sherman
was Intioduced by Mahone as tlm loiemost
stitcsman of tlm countiy , to whose warm
hcait aud love for every htate In tlm union
and lor Ilm whole conntiy he bore cordial
testimony. Oen. Mahone esteemed it a great
honor to have the honor of Introducing tlm
distinguished senator from Ohio to a
A liginlii audience. He came lieie , he said ,
to address the icasou and not the ptejndlces
of the people , and hi spoke tor him a eoldial
gieetlngand icspcctlul hearing.
Senatoi Sheiman was coitllally elected
and accorded a must lespeetful and attentive
healing. Ho began In stating tli.it
that it had been said of him that
he had been waving tlm bloody
shirt. If it was meant by waving tlm
bloody shlit that he sought to iciiew tlm ani
mosities ot the wai. then theio was u grave
mistake , tor he hail eou-tantlv said that tlm
war was over and Its animosities should be
burled out ol si ht ; that he would not hold
an ) loiitidcialesuldici icsponsiblc tor what
be did dining the war. and that all Im wished
to pieservc wps tlie acknowledged ic'iills of
( he war , and among tlie lights thus obtained
lie claimed that one was tint ol e cry man
ot law fid age should be allowed to exeiclso
Ids light to vote without distinction of race ,
color or pieviotts condition. Tlm speakei
claimed tint in ( lie last presidential election
the eoloied people had been deptived of their
lianchise. and that lo tills HUMUS ( iiovci
Cleveland became president nl thu United
States instead ot James O. Mlaiim It was
not tlievv.it ol the ichellinii , hut the wai upon
the ballot box that hclu < diiiraigiied.
The senator then slid : ( Jen. l.ce on the
othei hand , has conducted his canvass almost
entnel ) upon the basis of an apjieal tiieon-
iedeiate soldiers , to the pi nle ot \ iiginla for
tlie courage the ) exhibited in the wai. ami
with militarv trappings and flags and cavai-
t.ulcs he lib s to tain the attention ofom
people liom the questions ol tin ) picscnt time
to tlm meminlcs of tlm war , in wliich Vir
ginia tought biavel ) , and .submitted honor
ably to the atbitiaiiient of ainiH when their
cause was lost. 'I he senator then went on to
s.i ) that the gicat pi cssing issue id the times
was that the elei lion should be flee , open
and lair , and appeahd to men ot all panics
to uphold the pnnt ) of the ballot box.
Tlm sjieakci then stated that the iclatlvo
power of the two piinelples ot slate sovei-
eigut ) and n.itioii.il sovereignv ! had been
foievei settled b ) Iliewai , hut still the demo
cratic pait ) adlieted to ( he old llieoiics and
sought lo belittle , limit and clippie the pow
ers of the national government as to many of
tlie just ami neci's < .aiy objects ot national
poliev. As one ol tlieseobjcLts the sjie.ikci
cited tlm nollej ot piotcction ol homo iudiis-
tiies , and alter dwelling upon tlm oppo
sition ol tlm demociatie p.uty to that
policy said : The lepubliean paity plainly
and strong ! ) anuoiinics its pmpose to pioteet
all loimsot Anerican induslr ) , not only ol
the woikshop but ot tlm latin , by lev ) ing
duties on loieign goods that can lie mamifar-
tuietl or piodiiccd in tins eouuti \ . U e insist
that this policy gives emploiuent to capital ,
enables inanulactiners to pay more wages ,
and pintccts them fiom shain and undue
louipctition , aud in time i educes to con-
sumeis the price ol theatticle ; that it will set

tinning the rascals out , and added : Instead
ot tinning out lascals , tlieluve put in tas-
cals. Mi. ( leveland olten , no doubt , misled
and deceived , has appointed more iicniten-
tlar.v and jailhiids in Ins eight months than
weie appointed in the whole twenl ) loin
) cars tit icpulillcan admiiiistratioii. The
spcakci then s | > eke in ilctcnso of John
KO.H h , and ndvucated coinage of tlm silver
dolliu , upheld the policy giving to Ameiican
dilppeis tlm contiact lor the can ) Ing of
loieign mails , and advocated tlm policy
ot paving off the intciest healing
imbllt ! debt instead ot paying oil'
noii-lnteiest healing debts , as Im
claimed the demociats weio now doing ,
and closed Ids speech by s.i ) ing : We do not
wish in any way to inteilere with vom local

Inteiest in tlie ciectl.ni rjl Cov.Vse | and in

minds of Xew Yorkers as to whether Oen.

moved trom tlie fctate1. These doubts grew
out of the recent published statement attrib
uted to lion. J. . ChalTec to the ellect that
the famil ) of Gen. Grant did not wish tlm

at its nc.xt session would take action in tlm

action , and on the ICili Inst. .Majoi diace , its

stating tlm Illinois at some length , saving
that they were likely to inteilere SPI loudly
with the taisliig ol liinds foi the monument ,
and asking liei to make a delmlto and pos
