Second, the association, in cmploying such men, prove themselves a mere partisan tai] piece to the republican kite. Any man who will take advantage of bis position as a lecturer to lmpose his politi;:;d views npon an audience who have paid their money to hear him, is either lackiug in the essential qualititl wl ic'i go t make up a gentleman, or else is so intensely partisan that be can see DOthing outside of his own narrow-contracted, one-ideaed soul, and in either instance is uot fittogo ubout the country abuising and insulting people ander the guise of a public instructor or historian. And the association, by securing such lecturcra ought to bc "set down on " by every fairminded man, whether he be republican or democrat. Although we do nol approve insulting a speaker, we think the persons who showcd their colors by hissing some of the statements expresstd deserve miUl censure, if any, for thcy but repaid impudence with indignntion, white their action was in full keeping with the hooting iodulged in by tbc republicana- both were out of place.
