At Toledo : The Republican party has governed tbe couutry fur twtnty-four jeara in Ihe spirit and accordlng to the meaures of u broad nationallty. The progresa uniler our government in that spirit has far transcendtd 11 the progross made in all the previous years oí the Natiou's hletory. To rcmaud the eovernment uow to ihe cintrol of our opponents, who do not believe in the ,conscltut!onalitv of tbo ineasures whlch have given this progress, would be a step backwnrd into the dark. There ie not oi;e great mensure tbat the Republican party adopted, iior oue great ftep the party has taKen fince the jnnuguration of Abraham Lincoln In 1SC1, that the Democratie party bas not opposcd and has not considered unconftitutional. So that to-day to iemand thO governaient of tha Unitrd States to the control of the Democraey is not merely an ordlnary chango of parttes. It is a total rcversal of the eniire polioy that has dlf-tinguished the government of the Unllod States since 1S01. WOKDS TO YOUNG MES. At Uolumbus: The glants of mytholgy typified tbe strength of young men. In tue enlightened era of tbe Cbristian dispensation young men were called to the work because they were strong.

[Reuewad cbeering ] THE DEMOCRATIC POLIOT. If this Industrial syetem, which combines he hlgbest elemente of human pro?perity by mi tuig the agricultural acd themanufacturug interests, is worth preserving, you should ïot forget that our polittcal opponeits have never failed in the last fifty-oneyears- never siuce 1838, when thoy bad the power in cinirresí - eitherto repeal theprottctive tarlff, if oue existcd, or try to repeal ir, or to prevent the cuactment of such a tariff.

'Rene wed cheering.j B . thai the nssert' on that the yrotective tariit hinder the éovelopinect of th commerctï of tue couutry is uot ouly dinproved by thè facts, but directly the contrary is true, for agricuf ture and manufactures and commnce go hand in hand - were doslgned to go hand in hand. They are the triple co'ds which, bour.d togother, mnke up the streimth of uational prosperity.
