About 12 o'clock the Hon. Wm. A.
Smith took the stand erected for the
speakers and addressed the rge crowd
for about one hour and a half, in one of
tho best speeches of his life, dealing
heavy blows at Horace Greeley as the
man who had said and written more
against Southern people than any other
man in the United States. Maj. Smith
called attention to what Horace Gree
ley said of Confederate soldiers, when
ho denounced them as knaves, liars and
perjurers, all liable to indictment triA
sentence and execution, and who had
wantonly defamed Southern ladies
when he characterized them as being
But notwithstanding all the vile
slanders and libels uttered andjmblish
ed by Horace 'Greeley against the peo
ple of the South, they were asked to
vote for him, but they would not do it.
Greeley had no just right or reason to
even expect the people to vote for him
for President, when he himself had de
clared in his speech that Gen. Grant

As to Horace Greeley, he did not un

him. Ho has said and written more
against the Democratic party than any
other man in the United States. He
denounced Southern soldiers as "knaves,

If the distiller wishes to draw and
sell frohi 'his tax paid stamped cask, he
must piiy: his special tax as a wholesale
or retail Idealer. If he shall sell less
than five; gallons, he must pay the re
tail dealer's license tax of $25, and if in

had done, and yet they now profess to

I which they so bitterly denounced.
The Republican party has made
'great and beneficial reforms in the gov

be just and right by those who origin

Gen. Brogden showed that the Re

xl different acts which have taken a
burden off the people of more than
$000,000,000 a year, while the national
debt has been reduced at the rate of
.$100,000,000 every year of President
Grant's administration. He showed
that while the taxes had been so great
1 ly reduced and many articles of neces
sity made entirely free of duty, the
revenue of the government under tho
safe and economical administration of
Gen. Grant has greatly increased, while
the cost of collecting the customs reve
nue has been reduced more than one
half since 1SG0. In that year the per

Tlie Fair Grounds. There is a talk of
moving the Fair Grounds. Whether moved
or not, the grounds should be- arranged so
as to nave every ounaing outside the race
track, and seats should be erected so that
the people can view the races from be
ginning to "end. There is great room for
improvement in the arrangement of the
grounds, and we hope the new President,
Mr. Thomas M. Holt, will infuse new lite
into the Society, have the grounds properly
arranged, and get together at our next Fair
the largest crowd and more articles on ex
hibition than ever before. The citizens!
