The standard-bearer of the Liberal-
Democratic movement, says the Exami
ner, has made some effective addresses
in Ohio. None of the younger speakers
have more frequently addressed vast as
semblages of his fellow-citizens than Ho
race < ¡reeley. Wherever he has appear
ed, his presence has excited the greatest
enthusiasm. The Eastern papers report
his speeches made at various stopping
places along the route, and mention the
cordial welcome everywhere extended to
him. He had been called upon to ad
dress the people at some of the stations
as early as six o’clock in the mortiing,
and even in that early hour large audi
ences were present to listen to his re
marks. Tiie first place of note where he
stopped in Ohio after leaving Indiana,
was at Hamilton, where, from a stand
placed tinder some sycamore tree«, ho ad
dressed the people at length in favor of
peace and reconciliation. He was then
conducted to the train for Dayton, and
on his arrival was escorted to the Court
House, where an immense crowd greeted
him. His speech was enthusiastically
applauded, and soon after its termination
he was escorted to the cars for Spring
field, where lie addressed tiie people on
the union of hearts, of hopes and of
hands. At Bellefontaine large crowds
awaited him, and he responded to the
greeting to the citizens. At Kenton lie
spoke contrasting the platforms of the
two parties. At Tillin a crowd met him
with a band of music, ami an immense
(•reeley and Brown banner was stretch
ed across the railroad. At Clyde a sim
ilar reception awaited him.
Mr. (¡reeley arrived at Sandusky a lit
tle after 6 o'clock, p. M., and addressed
the people from the balcony of the Worth
House. Here lie received congratulations
from the leading men of tiie district,
many of whom liad tilled high positions
as Democrats or Republicans. After a
hasty supi»er he left for Cleveland, mak
ing brief addresses at the various stations
where the people assembled to welcome
him. On arriving at Cleveland the po
