Walker, of De'roit, made in the Opera House on Friday evenuig last was one of the best speeches made in Ourcity during the campaign. It was au indictment and couviotiou of the Bepublican party ad admiuistration from which there is no escape. Eapesially logical, couviucing, and con(ieinniug was his discussion of the centralizing tendenties of the Adininistration, of its uncstitutional interference with the local affaira of the Southern States. In treating of the a'bitrary and high-hauded interferenoe W1th the Louisiaua Legislatura he quoted at Jength from Judge Cooley, also from Judge "ar, Hou. Chas. Foster, and W. A. Wheeler, ■nepubhcan caudidate tor Vice-Presideut. He Waa frequently greeted by applau %e. -The speech was published ia f uil in Tues%morning-s Fret Press, and nothing but ack of 3Pace preveuta us trom giviu it iu our olumna. We do not liold the body of students of the University responaible for ths rowdyiara and villainous oonduct of a small portion of them at thx Opera House on Friday eveniug last, both preceding and during the speech of Hon. C. I. Walker. Neither are we sure that we ought to hold the student who maile such an exhibitiou of ill-breeding and rowdyism rasponsible. Their conduct was the legitímate result of Eepublican teachings : through the public jouruala, from the rostrum and stump, and in iamily and social circl&s. There young men, representativos of the party of " great moral ideas," the party of all the intelligence, the party of decency, the party of virtue, the party of piety, the party of patriotism, have been taught to believe that the Democracy are possessed of none of these qualities, - in f act that Demócrata, individually and collectively, are outside barbarians, with no righfs which their betters are bound to respect. From these tea3hrng8 come such demonstrations aa those of Friday eveniug. It isa great pity that ministers, professors, regents, aud those good, well-meaning, educated, and refined ladies who ao often aigh over the knowledge that this or that personal friend is a Democrat and subjected to such contaminating associations, could not have been present and witnessed the scène in which their pupils friends and pets, were the chief and diagraceful actors. Perhaps it wouhi have opened their eyes and given them soms new ideas of respectability, both iu individuals and parties. Perhaps not. - And just here we have a single word to say. Democratie meetings are open to the public, citizena and students, Republicana as well as Demócrata ; but Democratie speakers, aud the Democratie public by whose mvitation they appear, are entitled to deceut treatment and good order, and hereafter they propose to have it. That is all A dormán Democrat from Freedom was in town a day or two ago, considerably excited over a report, which he said had been put in circulatioii in that and aüjoining towus,- by a leading Eepublican candidate,- that the American Demócrata had conibmed to cut Geusley, the Democratie candidate for Treasurer, and vote tor Fairchüd,- his Republican opponent. Being assured that there was no such couibiuation, he repeated the story more iu detail: "that Mr. Pond and his friends would vote for Fairchild in revenge for the way he (Poud) was cut by the Germán Dsmocrats of Freedom, Lodi, Manchester, etc, in 1870, when a candidate for the Senate against Mr. Manu." And this version enables us, as one of the parties uamed, to brand the whole story as talse. Mr. Poud aud his poUtical or personal friends have no six-year-old scores to pay; and had they, defeating Mr. Gensley would uot right the wrong of six years ago. Besides, we and they are accustomed to support Democratie candidatos regularly and fairly nominateil, - uuless assured of their utter unfitness and unworthiness. And no such charges are brought against Mr. G-ensley. Mr. G. may lose some Democratie votes, as will, perhaps, every candidate associatod on the ticket with him, but it will not be wíth our advice or approval, -nor will one ot them be ours. These stories are set anoat for the purpose of mischief and should neither be giveo credit nor listened to.
