It seems tliat Eldredge in private convcrsation tliat day, had referred to the general as a man recently fiom Canada, where he went as a defaulter. The btory was of the same kind that the democrats are telling in this campaign, a sheer fabrication, a square ap and down lie, bald-laced in the bargain. The speaker said he was born in Ohio, had always lived there, and never sbould live in any other state. He liad lived in the county where he now resides ever since he was live months old, and witli two exceptions was the oldest pioneer in his county. That he never had been out of the state in his life, exccpt for a period of four years and thiee months, when he was absent in the southern state. helpinjj put down a rebellion against the life of tlie country, brought on by democrats. His marnier and words took with the audience aud cheer after cheer greeted his "explanation."
