lion. Chas. Sumner lias prepared an article
for thc Atlantic Monthly, entitled '.Clemency .ind
Common sense"' The following propositions are
laid down as a proper method fdr reorganizing
the rebel States.
I. As a general rule belligerent traitors, who
have battled agaii'.lt the country, must not be
permitted at once without probation or trial to
resume their old places of trust and power.
Such a concession would be clearly against every
suggestion of t omni on sense, and President
Johnson clearly saw it so, when, addressing his
fellow-citizens of Tennessee, ??tlj June, 1804.
he said :'I say that traitors should.take a hack
seat in tiie work of restoration. If there be hut
five thousand men in Tennessee loyal to the
Constitution, loyal to freedom, loyal to justice,
these true and faithful men should control the
work ot reorganization and reformation absolute
* 2. Especially ar 1 we bound, by every obliga
tion of justice and by every sentiment of honor]
to see to it that belligerent traitors, who have
battled against their country, are not allowed to
! rule the constant loyalists, whether white ot
I black, embracing thc recent freedmen, who have
I been our friends and allies.
3. Let belligerent traitors bc received slowly
and "autiously back into the sovereignty of citi
zenship. It is better that they should wait than
that the general security be imperilled, or our
solemn obligations, whether to the national freed
man or the national creditor, be impaired.
4 Let pardons issue only on satisfactory as
surance that the applicant, who has been engag
ed for four years in murdering our fellow-citi
zens, shall sustain the equal rights, civil and po
litical, of all men, according to the principles o?
the Declaration of Independence; that he shall
I pledge hiniself to 'he support of the nation's debt:
! and Vf Wc be among the large ho ders ot land,
that he shall set apart homesteads for all his freed
Following these simple rules, clemency will bc
\ ft ''Christian virtue, and not a perilous folly "
The suffrage question has many aspects. It
is both denied and asserted with equal vehem
ence that political rights are natural rights;
but every American at least must be very wary
how he commits himself to the negative of the
proposition. If governments justly exist by
the consent of the governed, it is ra'hcr difficult
to show that there is no higher claim to a share
in p'oljticai-.power than the consent of those who
already enjoy it. That it may be withheld is
very possible. That it can justly be withheld is
not evident. .
But in tire discussion of impartial suffrage in
the late reSe? States we may descend from the
I heights of abstract right," anti regard the point
as purely one of expediency. ,It,i$ asked, and
fairly enough,whether in the condition of public
opinion in the loyal States, as shown in the
Connecticut refusal of impartial suffrage;'in the
defeat of the same proposition in Wisconsin by
a majority of ten thousand in the popular vote,
while the Union ticket was elected by eight
thousand ;'and in the disabling suffrage laws of
many of the other States, is :. advisable to insist
upon impartial suffrage in the States which are
to be reorganized;' We say this question is
fair and natural enough, but the subject must
be regarded from the point of view of the na
Thus in a State ?ike Connecticut,' wbich is j
indisputably faithful to the Government, it is j
hot directly essential to the national safety that
the two thousand colon-d men should be allow
ed to* vote. It is a pitiful disgrace to the State ;
bert ft is not essential to the nation, because the
non-voters are so few, and because the political
power remains steadily in patriotic hands. So
also in Wisconsin a*nd other Western States.
But in Georgia or Mississippi the considerations
are very different. In those States the question
of impartial suffrage involves cftrectly the na
tional welfare. The point of inquiry is, wheth
er if political power be intrusted exclusively to
the late rebels with their present disposition,
the State will maintain that intimate and hear
ty relation with the.National Government which
'is indispensable, and whether .the dangers of
impartial suffrage there are not very much.more
than balanced by thpsa^f partial sur?rage ?, . ,.
It is not a question for passion qr rhetoric,
but for the calmest and most thorough deliber
