The New South. There was a South of slavery and secession—that South is dead. There is a South of union and freedom—that South, thank God, is living, breathing, growing every hour. These words, delivered from the immortal lips of Benjamin H. Hill, at Tammany Hall, in 1866, true then, and truer now, I shall make my text to-night. Mr. President and Gentlemen,—Let me express to you my appreciation of the kindness by which I am permitted to address you.
