Davis, Labor - Statistician, Zimmermann and Candidate Fer-roll Make Speeches. There was no band or decorated committee to receive lliomas MlVrrell up6a""'hiS arrival in Camden, last night. It was whispered about that General Robeson's opponent would speak at the Court House, hut no one seemed to be sure of it,and the leading Democrats for some reason or other, were as reticent as the ordinary politician is of an unimportant movement in a constable's campaign. . The mass meeting at which Thomas M. Fcr-rell was to speak last night, was ordered on the quiet. - Many members of his party are con-jecturing this morning, just' precisely what this still hunt in mass meetThg"seahs,'"and "" great many are of the opinion that the leaders are afraid -to let Mr. Ferrell be heard, lest odious "oohipai'lsons be drawn. - There is miich dissatisfaction vto-day, however,. naa there are many who wonld like io have seen the opponent of General Roheson in this fight. However, the Colirt House was well filled when the meeting was organized by the election of Samuel Sheer, Tresidout. Mr. De Witt X Davis made an address in the interest of the 'workingmen. He was" followed by Thomas M. Ferrell, whose subject was substantially the same. He declared 'that he was in favor pf a protective tariff and entirely opposed to free trade. Charles Zimmerman closed the addresses. -. Resolutions were passed declaring that it is necessary that the laws be so changed as to place trade nnions on par with manufac- ; turers organizations'; the revision of the tariff to protect American labor : that it be made a penal offence for employers to secure labor nnder false pretences. ;..that the public. Jands be reserved for actual settlers ; that corporations be compelled to pay their employes weekly in lawful money ; that mechanics and laborers be given a fire t liennponjheirworlj fqrthefull I amount of their wages ; the abolition of the contract system of public work ; that transportation and telegraph' charges be based upon cost, with a fair profit ; that eight hours constat tute a day's labor; that arbitration be the means of settling strikes; that education be compulsory, and that the employment in factories, etc., of children nnder 14 years of age be prohibited ; the abolition of the contract system of convict labor ; that e'qual pay be se cured to both sexes for equal work ; the aboIP tion of banking corporations and the establishment of a purely National currency, and the cessation' of the intimidation of. voters by employers.

The 'Republican Voters Turn Out En ' . Masse. ' Special to The Cockier. " J Woodbcby,Nov.2. A large aiid enthusiastic Republican demonstration of colored voters took place last evening at "Small Gloucester" ' in the vicinity of Swedesboro. The meeting was largely interspersed with whites, who had come for miles around to listen to an address by the silver-tongued orator of Virginia, George .1L- Arnold, Esq., . formerly a slave, though pf white parentage on one side. Every conceivable spot was taken np long before the meeting was. organized, which was "perfected ' by selecting, J. W. Mays, Esq., of Camden, as President, and Moses White, as Secretary.- The president .called the meeting to order promptly &t 8 o'clock, and in a neat and ap-' propriate speech, explaining the issues and duty of the hour, introduced A. C. Stevens, of Camden, who made an earnest appeal to his-colored brethren not to be deceived "by ouTsido" issues, and stand by their guns to fleet Hon. ' George M. Robeson. The president then introduced the orator pf the evening, George M. Arnold, Esq., who held his audience spell-bound for one hour and a half, depicting the trials and forbearances of his race in the South, and how they were defended and disfrancliised by the Southern Democracy the system of tissue ballots which was thoroughly explained, drawing, a picture of light and shadow that would hava.dona. justice., to any artist, saying that he had been deputized by his brethren in . the . South to come here and appeal to the sympathies of their brethren of the North to aid thein in their cause. -.. .-. - . - When the question was put, whether they would submit to such injustice by selling themselves for a consideration to the Democratic party, they arose en masse; nd resolved to a man to stand by their only friend, the Hon George M. J5obeQn. on Tuesday next. The meeting now was wrought up to a high tension, and as there seemed to be a demand for more, the President introduced R. D. Wil- liamsofjCapeJfay sounty, whajpoiein Jjigh commendation of the gentleman's speech from Virginia, then briefly, but forcibly, explained the position taken by the Democratic party before and since the war pn all public issues, their allegience to the doctrines of free trade and the position taken by the Republican party for protection to all-industries, the tariff ex plained and how it was a direct , benefit to the laboring classes, and that the interest of the farmer was identical with that of the manu facturer. - After paying a high compliment to the ladies (as there were many present),' saying that it was a good omen to have them interested in any cause, as their perceptions were keener and qnicker.and their hearts always rignt, appealed to them to see that their husbands and sweet hearts cast their vote for one of nature's noble men, the Hon. George 3L Robeson, the friend of the oppressed, who was an honor to his con' stitnency, to bis State-and his- eottntry The meeting then formed itself into a love feast, provision having been made for the com forts of the inner man. ; Too much can not be said in praise of Har rison Livcrmore, Esq., of Woodbury, who made an eloquent address, and Henry C. Garrison, of Swedesboro, for perfection in all the detail of arrangements. ITEMS FROM WOODBURY. Arthur f. Herbert started for Mexico again this morning.

FERRELL'S RECORD- CAREER OF IMPtiSTURE AND DEM-' AGOGUEISM EXPOSED. Suggestive Facts ForWorkingmen Who are Asked to Support the Little. . . f - "I Am" For Congress. - Special Correspondence of,THE Courier. The Democratic party not being able to meet the Republicans on the stump and discuss in a fafr, candid and open way the great questions of the tour have turned to mud throwing and base inuendoes regarding the character of our present Congressman as the only mode of reply to the facts that have .been so ably demon strated by him and other leaders of the Repub lican party. But they have always failed to substantiate any charge they have made. Their cry is the echo ol the Rebel brigadiers' yell that he has 60 often heard before. While they are indulging in this sort nfmnaifl thy should, however, look carefully at the Democratic aspi rant for Congressional honors, as we shall show him to be' far from the "consistent" meraLer of the M. E. Church that some of his supporters claim. ' We think herd that his head is completely turned by politics, and that he has got the "Big Injin, Me" idea, and got it bad.'"' lie thinks thatTjecanae "the'Republicana sent him to Trent in they will also send him to Washington; but he never made a bigger mistake in his life. The circumstanoes are totally 'different aiid thefelJ toO""Biuch at "Stake-now ,to trust to a man with. Democratic training and instincts. Glassblowers here, by the score who voted for him when he was elected Senator will vote for "Roby" next week, and nobody knows this better than Ferrell himself. The glassblowers here are almost solid for. Roby; in faet fuff-ti fit Republican delegates from this township were glassblowers, and Robeson men to the backbone. Ferrell has worked hard as the president of the Glassblowers League to advanoe his personal and Democratic-' interests with the blowers, but his efforts have fall -n. fiat, and about the only blower here who inter- ests himself for Ferrell is a disappointed can didate- cr-the-As9enibly-ea-4he--RepubliflB- ticket, but he is a man of no influence or in telligence. Ferrell used him in his his efforts to organize negro Knights of Labor lodges in Woodbrtry. 'This has cost Ferrell many Irish votes. . . . Very little of McPherson's money was used here last year because Fmcll claimed to own the township.-: This year if he should spend all of Senator Mac's $20,000 here he conld not -carry a township, aud my prediction .is a loss for him in this township next week of at least two hundred votes. We hear that the Democratic stifl-hunt is to be abandoned. You are doubtless aware that one of the reasons why the Democrats adopted this still-hunt was because Ferrell was playing a -two-faced game; while he is the straight and regular Democratic nominee he claims here and in all Republican localities that he is not a Democrat--he is only a "workingman," a "labor reformer," etc.,etc; but when he' goes to Franklin township and other Democratic strongholds where they don't read the papers and still vote for Andrew Jack son, he is one straightest of straight Demo-crate. This- -shows that he has learned something of politics at Trenton. .'fBijah" dont think he draws near as much water as he did his first year at Trenton. Ferrell is a pretty good fel low (to stay at home) but as we remarked be fore, it don't do to call him a "consistent' church member, as he has fallen from grace so as to go astray willingly and wilfully as we propose to show by inquiring cf him through your columns: First. What he did with the $3,000 that was given him at Woodbury the day before his last flection?- The-draft-waa-eashod at tho First National Bank of Woodbury (see their book) and was sent from the State Democratic Head quarters at .TntonHwon'J68 did this buy ? and did he not ride the county the day and night previous to his election and pay but this money for the purpose, of buying votes, and no other? , ': , -. -geeond.r'Why does, hi takaajj:ant.,aatat church and a back seat at the theatre? (A dozen of our citizens here have seen him do both, and he dare not deny it.) Third. Why did he lie to Judge Carter about the Gloucester county judgeship and promise it to him and then work for Jones appoint- met? Ask Judge .Carter, who is a consistent and honorable Democrat, his opinion of Fer rell? ... " Fourth. Why does he profess Temperance principles here, and at Trenton furnish free rum to some of his constituents, treating as many as ten persons at the bar of the Trenton House at one time ? (Mr. Mayhew, of Clay ton, was one of the ten.) Fif th.-j-Why is he only a ''Labor-reformer" in GiassborbTand jUst a "straTgTitDeinocraV or either, or both as seems to best suit his in terests V " - ; ; ; Sixth. If he professes to be "consistent" in religion aud is in reality a hypocrite, what will he be in politics? . These are questions that have troubled some of us here for a long time, and wo would like very much to see them cleared up to our satis faction. '-Will he do it? Alas! poor Tommy, we can't 4ist yon. Pol ities have been your ruin, as they have .served m&ify other good men. We'fear that 'even' if his intentions were good it would be a repetition of the Case of Charles E. Boyle, Demo cratic nominee for Congress in the Twenty- first District of Pennsylvania; he declared in favor; of a protective tariff -and his party papers say he is a curse to the party. ' See last Friday's Philadelphia Record. ".

Didn't Mcl'herson spend his money ta elect me, so how can I go back on him ? I will do as I did at Trenton: vote with the Democrats on every party measure that comes up. for 1 am a Democrat and so are all of my family, I purchase my drygoods and groceries of a Democrat; also my pills and titters: the editor of my paper hero is alno a Democrat, and I patronize Democrats first, last, and all the timo." , ' "And why? .

L'-Henry Sonberg and Henry Tison, -who are charged with kidnapping the two children of John Kolb, a hotel proprie- ' tor, have been remanded to jail to await trial. Eolb's hotel adjoins the Continental Hotel, kept by George Mangold. There is a long-standing feud between the two men, Kolb having been at one-time-proprietor of the Continental. 1 The children are aged respectively 1 and 4 years, and were missed just before noon. Mr. Kolb and his wife were almost distracted, and while a description of the missing children was tele--" graphed to various points, the people of the town instituted a thorough search.

The day was a typical one of Indian summer. The air was pure and bracing: It was neither hot nor cold, but'' a delightful mildness pervaded the atmosphere. The merest suggestion of a haze mellowed the light of the sun and gave a beauty tojhe most Commonplace objects. Land and sea seemed to lie in a pensive gloryr- A few flefecy "clduds " floated out of the mist that hung over the western horizon and sailed over the .city occa-"sionally, but for' the most of the day the "sky had a deep peculiar blue.
