Kwann, Hon. Win. IMukney "Whyte and Hon. Stevenson Archer Highly Interesting: Letters, Ac Reported for the Baltimore Snn. r"" In pursuance of a call of the chairman of the Executive Committee of the Democratic City Convention, (Bernard Carter, Esq.,) the demo, cratic conservative citizens of Baltimore and of the State assembled last night in Monument Square to ratify the nominations of Seymour and Blair hy the National Democratic Convention in New York as candidates for President and Vice-President of the United States. At an early hour the square commenced to fill, and before the meeting was called to order it was packed, as also its surroundings. During the evening the gathering exhibited the greatest enthusiasm and interest in the proceedings. THE STAND. The speakers stand was located at the north end of the square, and was handsomely decorated with national flags and brilliantly illuminated with gas chandeliers, giobes and fancy lanterns. Over the front of the stand were displayed the words, "Our Country," formed of gas jets' surmounted by a large star also formed of gas jets. Upon the base of the stand were the words "Seymour and Blair,""in large letters, with the words "The Union" and "The Constitution." Upon the front corners of the stand were four transparencies containing mottoes and sentiments. Upon one of them were "The Equality of all the States." "A Star for Every State and a State for Every Star." Upon another "Magnanimity and Amnesty to all who Love a Common Union, "No More Arbitrary Arrests. Upon a third were "All Just Government Derives its Powers of the Governed." "The Federal Constitution The Work of White Men, Made for White Men." Upon the fourth ansparency were "No Taxation without Representation." "The question of suffrage is exclusively for the States, and not for the carpet-baggers." Mayor Banks was among other prominent citizens on the stand. Minnick's Band was In attendance, and performed at intervals patriotic and inspiring airs. THE WARD OKQASIZATI0N8. In the meantime a number of the ward organizations assembled at their headquarters, and filing in line, headed by martial music, marched to the place of meeting, and as each ward arrived in the square the enthusiasm became more intense, and shout after shout, mingled with cheers for Seymour and Blair, went np from the congregated multitude. The first ward that arrived was the seventeenth, h'aving about six hundred in line, under the marshalship of John Fitz-patrick, aided by John Weyler,Tsaac Walker, Wm. 11. Collins and John T. Fitch. Among the mottoes upon their transparencies were tho following: "We Grant nothing until we Sey-monr; "Charity to all, injustice to none;' "This is the white man's country;" "Constitution of the United States this ghost is our safety;" "No negro suffrage;" "Let democrats heed the lessons of the past if they would save the country;" "Prostrate liberty appeals from Congress to the people;" "Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God." In the procession there was also a miniature ship containing four boys dressed in sailors' costume. The next ward was the twentieth, about five hundred in number, marshaled by A. C. N. Matthews, assisted by B. 11. Hobbs, W. S. Cook, George Ray, Joseph Booth, and Wm. Kirk. Among their transparencies were: "We go for Seymour and Blair; Come with us and save your country." -Bonds must be taxed." "No North, South, East or West; our country as before the war." "Tickets for Salt River; inquire of Grant and Colfax." "No taxation without representation." There was also a picture of a man upon a donkey, under which was the words, "My boy, Ulysses."' The sixteenth ward followed, having about the same number in line. It was under the marshal-ship of D. A. Jenkins, assisted by Wm. Oster, Patrick Duff and Wm. Merriken. An attractive feature of this ward's procession was a pyramid, upon one side of the base of which was a picture of Seymour, and upon the other a picture of Blair. Upon one side of the column were the words ' Bail to the bold defender of our constitutional liberty Andrew Johnson;" upon the other, "We will neither tolerate fraud nor submit to force in the electoral college;" on the front, "I will stand by the Maryland Line Thos. Swaun:" and upon the rear, "Seymour, Blair and victor-." src. There was a wagon also containing the handsome banner won by the ward at the last State election. Among their numerous mottoes was the following rather significant one, "We are going to See-more on the BJ-air road:" The last organization was the Hickory Club, cf the eighth ward, numbering about 500, headed by the Fort McUenry Band, and marshalled by F. II. Shallus, assisted by Greenbury Wilson. George C. McGill, C. A. Donnelly and William II. Roberts. Among the mottoes upon their transparencies were the following: "We want no cigar President," "Seymour and Blair." "Death to radicals;" "A beautiful combination for our country's representatives, Chinese, niggers and radicals," aud "American liberty, Irish independence." In consequence of the warm state of the weather, the other wards concluded not to turn out in procession. THE ORGANIZATION. The meeting was called to order by H. Clay Dallam, Esq., who proposed the following list of officers, who were elected unanimously: President, Hon. Charles E. Phelps. Vice-Presidents First ward, George W Bishop; second ward, Henry M.

REMARKS OF HON. CHARLES J5. PHELPS. Mr. Phelps, after returning his thanks for the honor conferred upon him. and referring to the objects for which the meeting had been called, to the platform and candidates, then spoke of the reunion of Northern and Southern soldiers in the New York convention as an inspiring spectacle. He then adverted to the universal interest which had been manifested throughout the country in the pioceediugs of the New York democratic convention, and which had brought such crowds of spectators to witness its deliberations. Asking what had caused this uuusaal anxiety, he proceeded: Let the history of seven dark and disastrous years answer. Let your patriotic Chief Justice answer: "It ia time for all who love their country to band together against the Jacobins." In the name of loyalty, thev have trampled under foot the supreme law. ia the name of liberty, they have established a military despotism. In the name ot human rights, they have degraded their own race with penal sufirage, and n the name of justice, they have enforced upen others abominations which they spurn for themselves. The name ot Union they have iusulted with a spurious brood of mock States, bastards of the African and bayonet, and now. in the name of peace, they ask us to accept as Hual a forced condition of smothered war. They have plunged the country madly and deeply into debt, and have flooded it with an unconstitutional, irredeemable paper currepcy.evcry dollar of which shows repudiation on its face. They have equivocated in their laws and dissembled in their platform, so that they can talk gold to the bondholder and greenbacks to the taxpayer. While they have been marshaling section against section and race against race, they have succeeded in arraying capital against labor, and the credit of the government against the existence of the people. While they haTe turned black laborers iiito lazy politicians, they have plundered white laborers to support them. Their freedmen's bureau has refused transportation from the interior to the seaboard of colored applicants for passage to Liberia, aud has issued great coats to the negroes of South Carolina in the month of May. Their fiscal eystem Is a net in' which honest men are caught and stripped, while rogues break throuirh with the plunder. The country swarms with tax-gatherers, detectives, spies and informersIndustry aud honest labor are choked with oppressive restrictions, and fraud and perjury riot in luxury ana extravagance.- Every day honorable men are being forced out of business and weak men into a career of crime by revenue laws which are a premium upon dishonesty. In short, these Jacobins, whose iron rule the republican party cannot, dare not, or will not throw oft', by their reckless violation of constitutional obligations, their perfidious breaches of plighted faith, and their examples of profligacy, venality and corruption in high places, have demoralized the peopie aud debauched society. Fellow-citizens: We have banded together against the Jacobins, under the eminent civilian of the Empire State and the resolute Union soldier of the Great West, to save what yet is left us of our liberties, and, by the blessicjj of God, to rescue what is lost. We propose to do this, not by revolution, not by an appeal to arms, but bv the peaceful omnipotence of the ballot. When the American people are made to understand, as they will understand before this canvass is over, that ten rotten-borough States are to reinforce the Jacobin power with twenty bogus Senators, and that four millions of half-civilized Africans in the South are to neutralize the political power of twenty millions of free-borm Americans in the North and West, the fiat has gono forth which will shatter that deep-laid scheme of partisan usurpation from turret to the foundation stone. . ilr. Phelpe's remarks were repeatedly cheered ' .' TUB RESOLUTIONS. . ' II. Clay Dallam.

That the platform and declaration of principles adopted by the National Democratic Convention express the true theory of our system of government; and that the experience and history of the country fully justify the assertion that our permanent and material progress as one of the nations of the earth has been attained only by a strict adherence, in the administration of the government, to the principles therein set forth. 2. That it is the duty of every man who sincerely desires the preservation of the republic ana the rights of her citizens, to do his utmost to rescue the country from the radical and selfish misrule of the party which has controlled the government for the last eight years, and which, under various pretences, has converted the federal government from one of delegated powers into one of boundless powers; a party which has inaugurated courts judicature unknown to the constitution and laws of the country; which has set on foot arbitrary arrests and imprisonments, without a shadow of warrant in law, which has refused the great protective writ of individual liberty the habeas corpus stud denied to American citizens their constitutional right to be tried by a jury of their peers; which has imposed new and most burdensome and offensive modes of taxation; which has in one section of our common country divorced the two great cardinal and inseparable features of our system, taxation and representation, for the protection whereof the fathers of the revolution ceased to be colonists, and by their own stout arms became citizens of sovereign States; which has, in the same section, subordinated the intelligent white race to the ignorant and untutored African, and, under the pretext of guaranteeing a republican form of government to ten States of the Union, has actually usurped the legitimate government of those States and destroyed and obliterated the very features wherein their State governments were republican; a party, in fine, which has violated every sacred provision and overthrown every bulwark of the federal constitution, with a view to consolidate and thus perpetuate its own usurpations. 3. That in Horatio Seymour, of New York, the nominee for President of the United States, we recognize an able statesman and an incorruptible patriot, who will bring to the discharge of the duties of the high office to which we pledge ourselves to do our best endeavors to elect him a large experience and unsullied public record, an unspotted private character, possessing and commanding the confidence and respect of the democracy of the entire country, North, South, East and West: that we have an abiding confidence that, if elected, he will "faithfully execute the office of President of the United States." and will "preserve, protect and defend the constitution of the United States;" and, that our fratricidal war, with all its attendant horrors, having passed away, we hail the selection of a statesman at this time for the highest office in the gift of the people as eminently fit and proper over the mere military chieftain, recognizing, as we do, that in a free republic "the pea is mightier than the sword." 4. That In Frarfcis P. Blair, of Missouri, the nominee for Vice-President of the United States, we recognize a bold, fearless and experienced leader, whose valor in behalf of the preservation of the Union of the States, under the constitution, was illustrated on many a Dloody field in our late unhappy struggle; but wno, the war having ceased, faithful to the pledges he gave, has persistently advocated the immediate restoration of every State in all her sovereign rights, as a coequal member of the Union, and has boldiy defended and protected the great principles or which the democratic party has ever been the exponent and protector. LETTERS RECEIVED. It was announced that letters had been received from several distinguished gentlemen, anioDg them the Hon. Wm. B. Reed, of Philadelphia; Hon. A. H. II. Stewart, of Virginia; Hon. Heister Clymer, of Pennsylvania; Senator Hendricks, ol Indiana; Hon. James Brooks, of New York; Hon. Montgomery Blair, and others, announcing their inability to be present, but expresbive of views in accordance with the meeting. Mr. Phelps then introduced the Hon. Charles A. Eldridge, member of Congress from Wisconsin, who addressed the meeting, his remarks being frequently interrupted by the arrival of the ward organizations aud the cheering which greeted them. SPEECH OF HON. C. A. ELDRIDGE. Mr. Eldridge said he came before them fatigued with the long struggle with the "Jacobins" of the House of Representatives, but the occasion was worthy of an effort on his part. The democrats, he said, have, for the first time since the great struggle of the war, a ticket presented for their support which is entirely national in its character the noble patriot, Seymour, and the noble soldier of Missouri. A greater occasion was never presented than when thirty millions of people are to say by their votes whether this Union shall be restored and continued or whether it shall go down to destruction. For what object was this great struggle this mighty war but to eave this giorious Union? No less a cause could have ever called together such vast armies as were marshalled in the field than that which was to save the country; yet it is remarkable that, three years after its close, it should now be debated what this war was for. When the victory was won, what had we to do but to lay down the weapons of war, to take the hand of the submissive foe and welcome him to fraternal relations? What have the radicals done, and what do they propose to do, but to make the Southern people the slaves of their former slaves? The radicals have overthrown all that is valuable in our written constitution. They not only intend to overthrow it in the ten Southern States, but to accomplish the overthrow of the constitution in the other States for the purpose of establishing and perpetuating radical rule. The democratic party occupy an entirely different position and entertain different feelings and purposes. Notwithstanding General Srant reported that the South was entirely submissive, the radicals refused to receive them back into the Union. General Grant says he has no opinions, and nothing to say. He expects to be elected by the popular clamor, which is not the position of the democratic candidate and statesman, Mr. Seymour. Massachusetts, the great dictator of radical policy, resisted the return of the Southern States into the Union upou terms cf equality, because she has antagonistic interests. Her whole policy is seilish, and she is afraid of being overpowered by them. Her representatives influenced Congress to levy a tax of fyi per gallon, on whisky, and then passed a prohibitory liquor law to prevent her people from drinking any whisky, so that they should not pay any of the tax. The same selfish, partisan, sinister motive infiuences the whole policy of the radical party. A bill has been under consideration in Congress for several days past to distiibute arms to the States, for the sole purpose of enabling the loyal Governors of the Southern States to place muskets iu the hands of the blacks. A democratic member from North Carolina implored the House not to pass the bill aud arm the negroes. If the bill was passed, the whites would be exterminated. A question has been long pending before a committee of Consrrees, of which committee ho is a member, and Mr. Thomas, of this State, the chairman, whether Maryland has such a republican form of Eoverument as to entitle her to representation in Congress. Mr. Thomas thinks the State is too democratic to be republican. The same question is pending in reference to Kentucky, because she gives 5X1,000 democratic majority; and Delaware also, because that little State gives a democratic instead of a radical majority. The Speaker Of the House of Representatives (Mr. Colfax) Bays their party is engaged in expounding the government, r in other words, creating a new republic Do you want the government of Maryland to be expounded? Cries of "No, we will not have it." Mr. Eldridge said he had not the strength to discuss all the important questions connected with this canvass. But he had referred to enough to damn to eternal infamy the party that is opposed to them. The indictment against the radical party would be so long and infamous as to disgust the listeners to it. There is no wickedness which they have not perpetrated aerainst the citizens and government of the country. They have committed every crime and all the crimes which would be subject to capital punishment in other countries against the people of the South after they had laid dbwn their arms and been promised peace, protection, and resto ration. lie did not believe that the success of the Union arms ever depended upon the black man. All the legislation of this all-powerful Congress (and his fellow-members well knew its power) was utterly impotent and powerless to create equality between the races. The democratic party, be claimed, is the true friend of the black man. If they trust to the radical party the blacks will go down to their destruction. Ap plause.1 ' Mr. Phelps then introduced the non. J. S. Golliday, member of Congress from Kentucky. sr-EECU or HON. j. 8. GOLLIDAY. As a Keutuckian, he said he felt proud to address the proud old people of Maryland and of Baltimore. He looked upon the sea of upturned faces, and as an apostle of democracy he could see no sinner to whom he could address himself. Those present wanted no word from him to urge them to the support of the New York nominees. It was useless now to speak of men, for men actually sink into insignificance beside the great principles at issue. He had no word to say against Gen. Grant, a gallant soldier, but soldiers were not always easily made into statesmen, however well they may ride a horse, or how gracefully they may smoke a cigar. Neither had he aught to say against Mr. Colfax, who was a kind, genial little gentleman, good enough in some positions, but not the man, in the" opinion of the speaker, to fill the second office iu the gift of the people. Of Horatio Seymour, he said throughout the length and breadth of the land his equal as a statesman could scarce be found. General Blair was a gentleman destined to receive, perhaps, more radical abuse than any other man in the land. Already the radical members of Congress were calling him a revolutionist. . The speaker acknowledged that the country was in the midst of a revolution, but it was a revolution on the part of the radical Congress to break up every vestige of a free republican government-He cautioned his hearers to loolc for trouble iu the coming campaign.' The radical Congress was not going to give np power without a struggle, and although he was neither a prophet nor the son of the prophet, he pfedictod that if necessary they would use the bayonet in retaining their power. Already were they taking steps to send arms to the reconstructed blacks of the South, by which they could tyranize over and murder and destroy. the defenseless whites, and all this in;order to retain their power. What care tha radicals (or; th$ bjaxfcs. or Jar. tha whitest AIL BALTIMORE, TMDAY MORNING, they care for is power. Mr. Golliday then Went on to speak of the radical attempts to reconstruct Maryland and Kentucky, and alluded to General Butler and other military members of Congress, who were now boasting of what they had done inr putting the rebellion down, whilst most of them had nevor smelt gunpowder Some of these valiant gentlemen had spent the time they should have been in the army in hiding the valuables which they had incited the blacks to steal. He gave a graphic description of th.e recently admitted members of Congress from the reconstructed Southern States a set of carpet-baggers from all quarters of the country, although he was pleased to say that he had not yet come across a carpet-bagger who hailed, cither from Maryland or Kentucky. The white men of the South were now as ready and willing to fight for the stars and stripes as they were put a short time since to light for their favorite stars and bars, and yet these revolutionists in Congress call them rebels. Let the black man alone, even if allowed to vote, aud there will be no trouble with them. But the great trouble now is with the miserable creatures who are endeavoring to use the poor blacks for their own selfish purposes to keep them in the positions into which they have sneaked, and which they now so unworthily fill, and these were a portion of the vagabonds that controlled the destinies of this great country at Washington. The next speaker introduced was Gov. Swann, who was received with applause. SPEECH OF GOV. 'SWANN. " ""' Gov. Swann said his object in being present was to eo-operate with his fellow-citizens in giving his cordial endorsement to both the platform and the nominees of the New York Democratic Convention. A new era was about to dawn on the country, and he believed the results of the deliberations of that body would inspire onfi-dencc in the drooping spirits of the people everywhere. He alluded to the enthusiasm which had greeted the nominations everywhere. Pennsylvania now stood shoulder to shoulder with Maryland in her effort to put down revolution and bring peace to the country. Ho said he hoped to see Maryland prove herself the banner State in the great struggle for constitutional liberty. As far as our own State was concerned, the radical element had melted away. A few white men, with some deluded negroes had fraternized together and attempted to place a military Governor over Maryland, but the white men overwhelmed by Ehame, had slunk into hopeless obscurity, and the poor negro, deceived by their empty promises, was now, ho believed, disposed to throw himself upon the protection of the democratic party, which had always been ready to deal justly and fairly by him. These radical men could not now muster a. corporal's guard in Maryland. The Governor then went on to give an account of the exciting scenes he witnessed during the setting of the New York Convention, and the enthusiasm with which the nominations were received in Philadelphia, beingf loudly cheered at every point. Of Governor Seymour, Mr Swann spoke in the highest terms. He knew him to be an honest Christian gentleman, and, in his judgment, the government could not fall into safer hands. He was a constitutional statesman, imbued with the spirit of Washington and the early founders of the federal system, and educated to regard popular rights as too sacred to be put in jeopardy by radical usurpation. Of Frank P. Blair it was unnecessary for him to speak. An experienced statesman, a brave and gallant soldier, he was too well known to need praise at his hands. Governor Swann then went on at length to review the acts of usurpation committed by the present Congress, and said the fairest portion of this Union had been subjected to absolute military cotitrol. 1 he power conferred on the head of the srmy and his military satraps is not less absolute thau that exercised by Austria or Russia to-day. Congress has placed the negroes over tho white mau; constitutions have beeu made at the point of the bayonet; governors and other civil officers have been deposed, and the whole machinery of government has been made subservient to the will of Congress. Tie asked was this the government for which our forefathers fought the battles of the revolution? And was this condition of affairs to be fastened upon the country for four years longer? It rested with the great democratic party to answer the question. ,Gov. Swann went on to say that nothing short of a 'radical change in our public affairs will correct the evils brought upon the .country by the party now in power. The sceptre most pass into orher hands. Show that your public debt is being reduced; put down your Freedmen's Bureau; remang your army and your ravy to a peace standard; infuse a healthy economy in all the departments of the public service; inspire confidence in the capitalist by a wise system of finance and a disposition to curtail all useless and unnecessary expenditures, and in less that twelve months there willbe no difference between a dollar in gold and a dollar in greenbacks. The great wrong which had been perpetrated upon the country by the exclusion of the Southern States was next alluded to. To wipe out States was to destroy the Union The constitutions which were now being forced upon the Southern States by the point of the .bayoaet. and through the forced negro element, were not, he fully believed, worth the paper on which they were written, and the courts would so determine. If fairly dealt with the Southern States would be able to contribute largely to the'pnWic burthens, but as things stood they were unable to do anything. They had no money with which to pay and no capital on which to embark in business. The radical party had cut them oil' from the benefits of immigration, and the negro would not work whilst he had ttie Freedmen's Bureau to depend upon. Iu allusion to the remarks of other speakers ia reference to the radical managers at Washington sending arms to the Swuthern States t be used by the blacks to keep down tho white citizens, Gov. Swann said that during the past two years the War Department had been importuned time after time to furnish Marylaud with the quote? of arms to which she was entitled, and although Mr. Stanton and others who had beoo at the head of the department during that time had admitted the claim as just, up to the present day not a gun had been furnished, and her militia were now using arms purchased from manufacturers at the expense of the State. He said he had seen men in the democratic oonvention who had measured lances with each other ia the fury of battle, but they were not the less friends now that the strife of war was over. The Governor went on at considerable length to speak of capital and labor, remarking that he should ever regret the two arrayed against each other, and he was sure the democratic party would stand by the laboring classes in all juat demauds consistent with national honor. During the delivery of his speech and at its conclusion the Goveruor was loudly cheered. REMARKS OP HON. W. P. WHTTE. The next speaker introduced was the Hon. W. Pinkney Whyte, Senator from Maryland, lie fuliy endorsed the action of the convention held in New l'ork in presenting the names of Hon. Horatio Seymour aud Gen. F. P. Blair as the standard bearers of the democrat-ic party in the coming campaign. He thought that the dark cloud so loug hanging over the people of this country had now a 6ilver lining, and as the people of Egypt had been led safely through the wilderness by a pillar of cloud by day and of fire by night, so the speaker trusted that Horatio Seymour, under the guidance of a beneficent Providence, would lead this people out of a worse than Egyptian bondage. He believed that Horatio Seymour was an honest man, a Christian citizen and an enlightened statesman; and could the 'people hesitate to vote for a man embodying such virtues? He was the very type of democratic principles. The friends ot Andrew Johnson were bound to vote for Mr. Seymour, and .the friends of George H. Pendleton will also give him their support. Mr. Whyte next referred to the nomination of Gen. Blair for the vice-presidency, and said that the name of Blair was synonymous with democratic principles. The father of General Blair was the friend of Andrew Jackson, aud his son was cradled in the lap of democracy. Tho speaker advised that the democratic party go before the people calmly and trust to Him who setteth down one and putteth up another for the result. Mr. Whyte was frequently applauded, and retired amid cheers and cries of "Go on," "Go oo." REMARKS OP HON. STEVENSON ARCHER. The next and last speaker was Hon. Stevenson Archer, member of Congress from the second district, who, in. consequence of the lateness of the hour, made but a brief address. He said it was important that every man should make himself felt in this contest, which was one for liberty. He heartily endorsed the nominees of the democratic party, and with the platform there could be no fault found. It had been endorsed by the workingmen's meeting and the soldiers' convention held in New York, and even the radicals in Congress could find no fault with it. An issue was made in the platform as to whether the bondholders shall bo taxed, aud whether the bondholders shall be paid in gold, while the workingman is paid in greenbacks, upon which there is 45 per cent, discount. The remarks of Mr. Archer were received with loud applause. Before and after the address of the last speaker a new campaign song, dedicated to the national nominees, written by Gen. W. II. Hayward, was sung. The meeting, about 12 o'clock, adjoured, many persons remaining nntil that late hour. The Letters. The following are the principal letters sent tQ the committee of arrangements of the above meeting by distinguished gentlemen who had been invited, and were necessarily absent: LETTER FROM WM. B. REED, ESQ. Philadelphia, July 20, 18C8. Geutlcmen: I know nothing that would give me more pleasure than to accept your invitation and address my fellow-citizens of Maryland on tho issues of the day; but the state of my health and of my family forbids, and I have only the privilege of speaking to you in this way. You are, in the strictest sense fellow-cftizcns us of Pennsylvania, for no foreign, coercive power now dominates in Maryland. No intrusive military or Bemi-m'ilitary .authority is known within your limits. You govern yourselveaand regulate your eleetlve franchise, as we do. You say, as we do. that the negro shall not vote or hold office. Yon say, as we do, that the negro shall not mix on terms of equality with white children in the public schools. You. as we do. recognize the true federal principle Of the sovereignty of your State, except where Its attributes have been expressly surrendered. In all these respects, and many more, you are fellow-citiaeas with us of Pennsylvania. It was not always so. You have had trial and triumphs unknown to us. We have had social terrorism and proscription, with all their minute vexations; but, in the darkest period of the war, federal uoor never vtutuxed Ja toox anr ax JULY 24, 1868. ganic Institutions. No such outrage was at tempted as was perpetrated on you, in the arrest Of your Legislature and the incarceration of ita members, men of the purest public and private character, for fourteen weary mouths in a federal prison. Of this, too soon forgotten. I should have been tempted to speak had I come among you, for I do not recognize the morality or the expediency of that easy condonation of political offenses which is now the fashion. The men who authorized and execute this outrage on the State of Maryland, some still high in office, are exactly what they were when the little bells were ringing, and the missives of despotism were flying through the air. A democratic House of Representatives will, I imagine, fesog-nize no statutes of limitation, or oblivion, or indemnity for this. " But what of the futureT It Is full of promise and it is full of perilous perplexity. Of assured promise, in my judgment, as to mere political results, but of perilous perplexity, whether the victory be won or lost. I hear around me and I read grave and heated discussions about financial problems, about bonds and greenbacks, and as to how the public debt shall be paid, in gold or in that mythical thing miscalled "lawful" currency." Now it seems to me, unversed as I am in such mysteries, that it is the existence of this "currency" which causes all the danger, and to its creation may be traced the possible wrong which threatens the public creditor. What security is there that the government and the party which committed the original fraud of saying that irredeemable paper was coined money, and must be taken in payment of private debts, should hesitate in saying that the same paper must be taken in payment of public debts? This is exactly what the leaders of the republican party in Congress do say. No country, that I ever knew, took the first step without being ready to take the second. The democratic party is not responsible for the primary wrong. It will be less likely to commit the other. The republican party and the mad majority that for a time sustained it, mixed this hideous legal-tender, lawful-money draught. It comes back with intensified venom to their own lips. Need any one wonder that the Bnl'er-Stevens doctrine of paying the funded debt in greenbacks is popular with the masses? Let us see how practically and in a homely way it works. A man of limited means deposits, in April, 1861, in a savings institution, f 1.0U0 in gold all his hard earnings. In April, 1803. he draws it out and is compelled to take, principal and interest, $1,080 in paper, worth at that time exactly $540. The poor depositor loses exactly $400, a pretty severe tax for patriotism and confidence! But who profits by the operation? The corporation keeps the gold for the same two years and then sells it for $2,000 in paper, with which it buys a government bond at par, gets gold interest as long as it ia held, and then is paid the principal in gold, worth at present rates and likely to be worth $3,800, making a net profit of over $1,?00. This profit the institution never dreams of paying back to the depositor. It don t even make dividends. It goes into brick and mortar and granite, and fine dinners. Need any one, I repeat, wonder that the poor man is not content? The case cf the banking institutions which have stockholders is not quite so strong, but the depositor gets poor comfort from large dividends paid to others out of the sale of the gold he, in his simplicity, put in for "safe keeping." No one can measure the contagion which the financial iniquity of 18G1 has spread. It has depraved individuals. It has corrupted commonwealths. The State of New York promised to pay its interest in gold, and for six years it has "loyally" paid it in paper. Pennsylvania borrowed millions in gold, and has lately paid her priacipa in paper, and her chief financial officer i grossly insulted a creditor who asked not to be paid at all. Nay, more and this fact never has had the prominence it deserves: the United States of America borrowed gold actual gold in 1861 or J8M, aud in 1804 or 1865 paid it oil' In paper, though, ns with the 5-20s, &c, the Secretary of the Treasury promised gold. Still, as I have said, the democratic party 13 responsible for none of this, aud I, for one, am old-fashioned enough to wish to see the debt paid as tho creditor wishes it to be paid, if it can be done. As the most natural means to this end. does it now occur to the anxious bondholder to think a little, and calmly and dispassionately ou the graver, more perilous problem underlying ail others the social and political and economical condition of the great Southern Asceldama, from the Potomac to the Rio Grande? Does any sane man believe that the public credit is safe, so long as the South remains as it is? Is the enfranchised negro a sure auxiliary to the bondholder? Are the disfranchised, persecuted white men of the South to be reiied on in this their agony to maintain the public faith? There was a time when, being interested in a species of property which, in one respect, resembled our federal securities, inasmuch as it was the object of prejudice, aud depended on the sanctity of the letter of the law. Southern men were the stanch supporters of the inviolability of contracts. What inducement havcjthcy now, persecuted, proscribes-disfranchised? "Take the foot of the negro from the whito man's neck," said an eloquent friend, a few days ago, "and we will talk to you about bonds aud greenbacks, but they don't concern us now." Sail the ancient instinct of honor exists. The South restored and contiWted and grateful the white man in his due position the negro abordiuate$ not to slavery, but to the control of a superior race the great Southern staples brought to life again and no one can doubt that the public credit would stand on a surer basis than it has at any period during the earthquakes of the last seven years. But there is another peril of the future an d to it the capitalist had better turn his attention and this, too, irrespective of political results. In fact, the danger is greater if radicalism prevails and negro domination be perpetuated. Was it ever part of the constitutional compact which created the Union, either its original text or Its modern glosses, that the State of Pennsylvania, where none but white men are allowed to vote or hold office, shall be joined in a corporation, on terms of equality, with the negro States of Alabama or Louisiana Is this part of our compact now? If so, when was it interpolated? It may suit the morbid scntimentalism of New England to see nothing in this hideous contact," but no one who knows the population of these Middle States its fixed, inveterate aversion to negro equality can donbt there will be a sharp convulsion when Pennsylvania and New Jersey wake from their lethargy and find themselves perpetual partners with the negro. A convulsion like this, produced in the North, will be more fatal to the thing called "public credit" thau any agitation we have yet known. This disturbance, most serious in every aspect, is enre to occur if radicalism is perpetuated. But, gentlemen, depend on it, the limit of endurance has been reached. The white democratic Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Avhich has made every President, from Washington to Lincoln, is Btirred to its centre. It craves the chance of proclaiming that it will not recognize the equality, here or elsewhere, of en alien and offensive race that It will maintain the public i'aij,h by restoring the white man to his due positionand that proclamation, be assured, it will make at the election in the coming autumn. Then will the new federal administration, guided by elevated statesmanship the calm, thoughfnl wisdom of trained intelligence, and resting for support on the great central Commonwealths of the Union, restore to us complete and thorough peace and sympathy, from one end of the land to the other. Accept for yourselves Individually the assurances of my high regard, and believe me faith-fnlly yours, Wm. B. Reed. To Messrs. If. Clay Dallam, J. P. Poe, Robert J. Brent, J. A. Buchanan, Henry Snyder, committee. LETTER FROM HOS A. H. H. STUART. Henry C. Dallam read a letter from Hon. Alex. H. H. Stuart, dated Staunton, Va., July 20, expressing regret that, owing to pressing business engagements, it will be impossible for him to be present and address the meeting. Mr. Stuart fully endorses the nominations made at New York, and highly approves of the platform of principles there adopted. He then goes on to say: "All governments,whatevermaybe their form, wield substantially the same aggregate amount of power, and over the same subjects. All claim control over the life, liberty and propertv of their citizens or subjects. The chara ter of a government, therefore, is not determined by the amount of power which it possesses. The true text is to . be be found in the concentration of all power in one man, or body of men, or in its distribution among co-ordinate departments. . Wherever all power is concentrated in one man, or body of men, call the government by what name yon may, it is essentially a despotism. And, e ceu-verso, whenever the powers of government are divided and distributed among the three great departments, which reciprocally act as checks and restraints on each other, the elements of freedom will invariably be found. The framers of the federal constitution were deeply impressed with these great truths, and hence they divided the powers of government between three separate and co-ordinate departments the legislative, executive and judicial and ordained that they should be kept separate and distinct, neither department exercising powers confided to the others. "Unmindful of this fundamental principle of free government, the republican party in Congress have broken down the partition wall established (by the constitution, and usurped a large portion of the powers confided to the executive and judiciary. To this extent they have converted the government into a despotism, and unless arrested in their mad career by the strong hand of the people, they will soon absorb not only all the powers delegated bv the constitution to the federal government, but also all those that were reserved to the States and the people. "The issue In the coming contest . between freedom and despotism between a government of delegated powers, limited and restrained in their exercise by constitutional provisions, or tho lawless nomination of a congressional oligarchy, which claims to be a law unto itself, and acknowledges no limit tolts power bat its own arbitrary will. ; ; "It is time, therefore, that the people should assemble and take counsel together now they-can beet arrest the revolutionary measures or the party in power. It is especially incumbent on the members of the old whig party, the followers of Henry Clay, to dismiss from their minds all prejudices against the name of democracy, and to leud their aid in the good work of consti-utional restoration. The whig party had its birth in resistance to what it regarded as usurpation by tho Executive. Its vital principle wae and is, resistance to tyranny.

LETTER FROM HON. JAS. W. WALL. In a letter expressing regret at not being able to address the meeting, the Hon. Jas. W. Wall, of New Jersey, says: "The nominations of Seymour and Blair have excited a popular enthusiasm that has had no parallel since the days of the illustrious Jackson, and which is the sure harbinger of success in the coming contest. The triumph at the ballot-boxes I believe certain; but whether the country shall be permitted to enjoy the legitimate fruits of the victory must depend upon the unanimity and courage the democracv shall manifest in preserving that which their valor may have won." X.ETTEB FROM HON. CHAS. J. BIDDLB. Previous engagements prevented the Hon. Chas. J. Biddle, of Philadelphia, from being present. In speaking of the nominations, he says: "Throughout the Union Mr. Seymour is recognized f s the statesman whom the country needs in the administration of its federal interests. General Blair has proved himself alike able in civil and military service, and his nomination is the democratic welcome to the great mass of conservatives, who will not countenance the revolutionary schemes of the radicals." OTHER LETTERS. Mr. Dallam also read letters from the Hon. Geo. H. Pendleton, regretting that bis engagements in Ohio prevented him from being present, from Hon. Heister Clymer, of Pa., who although unable to attend promises to address the people of Baltimore on some future occasion: from Hon. Montgomery Biair. of Md., at present sick at one of the Virginia Springs; from Hon. Jas. Brooks, of New York, Senator Hendricks, of Indiana, Hon. Samuel J. Tilden, all regretting their inability to be present, and expressing their best wishes for the success of the ticket. TELEGRAPH NEWS. FROM WASHINGTON. ENGRAVING AND PRINTING POSTAGE STAMPS.

Mention was made yesterday a spM:ial dis patch to The Sua from Bolair, Harford county, ol the lynching of a colored man named Isaac Moore, who made a felonious assanlt upon a young lady, near that town, on Wednesday. It has since been ascertained that the youug lady is a daughter of Mr. William Oldfleld, a highly respectable citizen of Harford county, residing about one and a half mile from Belair, and that there was another colored man concerned with Moore in the affair, who has also bcn ar. rested. She was on her way at the time from her father's residence to Belair, and when near Bynum's Run bridge, on the Church Hill road she was met by the two. who at once commence an assault upon her, first robbing her of a sum of money. Fortunately the screams of tho young lady had the effect of frightening the villains away .before they had fully accomplished their nefarious designs. Notice of the outrage was given and Moore was subsequently arrested aud lodged in jail. Great excitement prevailed, and when Moore was brought out before the magistrate in the aft-ernoon for a hearing, (as stated jn the dispatch.) he was taken away from the officers by a mob, and carried off and hung. A letter from Harford county, of the 22d inst.,glves the following cn the subject : "The whole village has been thrown into the wildeet excitement. Thi morning, as Miss Oldfleld was coiniug up the road to open her store, as usual, when near the little stream nearly opposite Giles's, and at the foot of the steep hill, two negro men seized her, knocked her down, dragged her into the bushes, and attempted to vioiate her person. She gave them up all the money she had, which was $ 24. She says they did not succeed in their viler purpose, however, and she got away from them finally, by some means. I have not beard all the particulars. All work is stopped iu Belair. Blacksmiths, carpenters and storekeepers have been ont hunting the vile wretches, and have caught one of them. He was taken to jail, but I have just heard that the crowd have hung him at the spot where the act was committed. The ropa was wound round his neck at the jail, and ne was thus carried through the streets, amidst the outcries aud vengeful demonstrations of the crowd. The man confessed, and said he had been watching his chance to commit the outrage for some time, but Miss O. always had company with her till this morning." Another letter says that after the negro, Isaac Moore, was arrested, (which was in Belair,) the sheriff took him down to Mr. O.dneld's house, where the lady identified him as one of those who attacked her. The sheriff resisted the crowd in their attempt to take the negro from him qthte nobly, and he was got safely in jail. He was afterwards brought out for examination at four P M.. but before" he could be eot to the justice's office the mob secured the sheriff and his deputies, put a rope around the negro's neck and carried him to the place where the offence was committed and hung him on a limb of a tree over the road perfectly naked, he having had hia clothes torn off him in his desperate struggle to escape. The negro had In the meantime confessed and told where the money of which he had robbed Miss O. was hidden, and also who was the partner in his crime. The sheriff then, arrested tha negro he had named, Ben Preston, and with great difficulty prevented the mob from hanging him also. He was carried past the spot where the body of Moore was hanging, in order to get him to jail. Tas Strike of the Brick laters in Aew York.
