Pbkd. Douglass o.v the Situation.
In our edition!, 0 vesterdny wo j?avp the procred
inRB at the Union Leapa- House, up to the time
of pons to prpfs. Alter thi there were lou I
all8 lor Fred. Douglass, which, being renewol,
Oencral Wal bridge presented Dim to the meet
ing as a man whose fifncle exertions had achieved
greater results tor tali nice than the exertiom of
any other man who ever lived. (The audience
roe as one man, and trroeted Mr. Douglass with
most enthusiastic munifrstations.)
Mr. Douglnfs upoke at great lencth, with
much humor nnd pntlios, and occasionally with
considerable eloquence, in advocacy ot the com
plete and unconditional recognition i of thertehts
ot colored men. He had read, he said, the ad
dress reccn.lv adopted at a convention in this
city, and had loiind many thlncrs In It to which
he could henrMly assent, and to nothing In that
address could he aent more heartily than to
the powerful areiimcnt there made auainxt taxa
tion without representation. (Laughter t lie
audience recognizing the remark as a palpable
hit.) Ii that address had emimated from a
colored coot" Mlon, he thought he should have
cone fo- every word of it. It was only a know
ledge ot the n-otlves tnat inspired it, aud of the
Un ited construction that was to he given to it,
that led nun at all to reject It, or to regard it as
n uniortuniUe State paner. It had been sidd
by Daniel O'Connell twenty years ago that the
lustiry ot Ireland might bo triced, like a
wounded man through a crowd, bv blood. In
comparably more truly might tuit statement bo
made rpcctlng the neprn.
r or two hundred and tidy years he had been
subjected to all tue exterminating forces of
slavery maniage abolished, organization un
kBown, education denied, the right to learn to
read the name of the God who made him denied,
the family tie broken up; and yet, un It r all tht
exterminating, forces ot slavery, hire the
negro was today, an Uncln Tom in the
Church, and a Robert Hiiull In the harbor
of Chatleston. (Cheers.) Here they are now,
between tour and live millions strong, and thp
question came up at once, "Shall the preseo.ee
of that vast black population be made a blessing
to themselves and to I he country, or a curve to
themselves and to the country?" Statesman
ship had but one nnwer. Philanthropy had
but one answer. It was, the thorough, the com
plete incorporation of the whole black element
into the American body politic. (Cries of "Hood,
Anything lcs than tbut would prove an utter
failure. The negroes should have the right to
all the boxes, the jury-box, the witness-box.
the ballot-box. The men who were outride of
these boxes were in rather a bad box. (Laugh
ter.) With the ballot-box, every other bos was
secured. The black man deserved it. He did
not mean to say that without the black man
the whites of the North could not have put
down the Rebellion; but he would say that the
blacks had helped to iut it down. aud that should
not be forgotten. (Crii'S of "We will not torget
it.") We were your friend", said he, during the
war. V hile others were your enemies, we were
your friends. While y ur poor soldiers, escaping
trom Anciersonvuie, jiciie isle, or Laatle Thun
der, hated to see the face of a white man. thev
reioiced whenever they could catch a glimpse of
a uiacK man. tuueerr.) vve were eyes to your
blind, legs to your lame, shelter to your shelter
less, breud to your hungry prisoners.
Anotner reason I have for asking this is that
you may want us again. (Laughter and ciieer?.)
It is not well, even for a great nation, to have
four and a half million.-, ot a justly discon
tented people. Shall it be said that in making
peace America remembered her enemies but
lorgot her friends (crie ot "Never"') exalted
her enemies and cat down her friends en
franchised her enemies and disfranchised her
friends? ("No. never!')
A delegate How nbjut Beecher?
J'r. Douglas Bceeuer ? Oh, God bless my
soul! (Laughter.) A gentleman asked me. as
I was coming to the hill, how J accounted for
Beecher's position. Were you ever n"ked that
question ? 1 have been asked it a thousand
times. I have never been able to answer it
satisfactorily to myself. I answer it as Beecher
himself answered, "on one occasion, a very pert
and flippant lady who asked him, at tea one
evening, "Mr. Beecher, can you tell us in what
condition Paul wa when he was lifted up to
the third heaven?" "I am sure," said Air.
Beecher, "if Paul did not know himself, I
do not know how I should." (Uproarious
Meeting at tue League House. The
third ot the series ol meetings organized under
the auspices of the Union League was held, last
evtniug in front of the League building. A
large crowd was in attendance. John P. Ver
ree introduced Governor Brownlow. The Par
son came forward and said: Gentlemen, I am
not physically, able to make a speech, aud if I
were, I could not consent to do so to-night or
on this occasion. I must uphold and maintain
tne dignity of thp oflice of Governor of Tenues
see. As such, 1 cannot go abroad stumping and
makiug political speeches. (Cheer and laugh
ter.) It will do tor a man w ho is accidental
President of the United Suites (cheers), but the
Governor of the great State of Tennessee must
not do anything of that sort. I have at my
back the lion. A. J. F!etcher, Secretary of the
Htate of Tennessee; he lives in the town of
Greenville, where Audy Johnson lived, aud is
better prepared to dissect him thfm any man I
ever heard of. If he lails, which he never does,
I have Judge Butler, ulso of Greenville, who
can tell you something ot Air. Johnson;
and after this Convention is over, I propose,
-with the Tennessee delegates, to go stumping
the North, after the President. (Cueets.)
Mr. Fletcher was then introduced. He said
that for the first time in his life he visited the
North, and he desired to say that the tried
Union men of Tennessee were heart and hand
with the great Union purty of the North; aud
he returned thanks to the great army of the
North lor a deliverance trom a tyranny exceed
ing tnat ever before witnessed iu the world
The Union men of the South are weak, aud they
look to the North for protection. (Cheers.) He
should fepeak of Tennessee loyally, aud narrate
onlv those things he uaaeen with hisovn eyes,
The Dresent State Government ol Tennessee was
organized by Andrew Johusou, Military Gov
ernor under Abraham Liucoln. He .uys him
self he devoted the energies ot three years in ,
organizing that State Government. His first
and .ecoud etlorts tailed, owing to the fortune?
ot war. His third was successful, and a Legis
lature was elected. He told us in his speeches
and proclamation what to do, and poiutei out
how the Rebels could be excluded from partici
pation iu the Government, and he advocated
equal sullruge. ' His policy was adopted, not
because it was his, but because it was right.
The Leeislature has lolloped his direction',
and now the negro is equal with the whites iu
till the Slate courts. But how does Andrew
Johnson l;ok upon that .State Government now ?
A lew weeks ago he was considering the
policy of appointing a Military Governor to
supersede Governor Biownlow, merely because
we had done what as Military Governor he re
commended. Tnis treachery ot the President of
the United States exceeded any treachery to
Congress or the party tiint eleeted him to ollice.
Alter we had pHsseil these laws which he ob
jected to, although he hud reconinieudei them,
the President telegraphed to General Thomas to
extend no further aid to the Government of
Tennessee, and our Government wa at the
mercy of Rebels. We have leaned upon the
military aud the President. These failed us,
and we directed our attention to the people of
the North, upon God, and Congress. Cheer3.)
We had assurances that it wo ratified the amend
nieut to the Constitution we would bo recog
nized by Congress, aud we should be placed
beyond the reach ot the President of the United
(ioveruor Browulow called a special meeting
oi tne iiegituaiure, ana recommended tue ruua-
cation of the amendment. A number ot Repre
sentatives had resigned for the purposo ol
. leuuciug trie number ol the House below a
quorum. We had special elections to nil the
vacancy. And vet we hud the Prehlilmit. nf th
United BUtm advislup members to absent them-
neives irom tue House in order to prevent
quorum! The House was thus reduced below
wnat was considered a quoium. The President
had abandoned us, and we tclt that the exist
ence of our State Government depended upon
tho ratification of these amendments. The
struggle continued for some time, and I began
to think the President had for once gained a
victory. But Governor Brownlo was made of
sterling stuff, anohcrecommended an ad ntit.no!
Bergexnt-ai-ai'nirt to Seek the hiding members
and bring them to the House, and keep them
there until the vote could be taken, (cheers.)
We secured the quorum, and adopted the
amendment, anil in a few hours our Senators
and Representatives were admitted to Congress.
The ppeaker discussed the poilcv of the Presi
dent as compared with that of Congress, and
contended that there would not have been anv
difference between the two if the Union party
had agreed to make him President in 1NG8. lie
next reviewed the past history of the President.
He commenced a.i a Whig, out in 137. when
the Whigs reiued to have anything more to do
with mm, he turret Democrat. He mnainei a
Demociat, hrni, malignant, and bitter, niitng
every one who was not a Democrat, in 1810 he
got mad at Air. Polk, and he made a speech
denouncing the party, and he was about to run
as an independent candidate tor Cougiess, but
ihe Whigs elected their candidate, and Mr.
Johnson went back to the Democratic party.
In lbUO we had four tickets tor the Presidency.
Anurcw Jonnson canvassed t tie State ot Ten
nessee, representing that Breckinridge and Lain-
were the true i.ninn men, and at each pluce h.'
spoke he appealed to his audience to know U
any one was mean enough to submit if Lincoln
and Hamlin were elected. Everv where hj
invoked the people not to submit toLlucol.i
and Hamlin. Here was his treachery to tlm
pople of the South, and every widow in tho
South has reason to curse Andrew Johnson,
when she remembers that her son too his
advice, and reiused to suoiuit to Air. Lincoln.
Hie speaker reviewed the history of Eist
Tennespee during the Rebellion, and denied that
the loyalty ot that section was due to Andre v
J In. son. The lact was that Andrew Johnson's
louilty resulted irom the loyalty ot the pepole
in' that quuner. (Cheers.)
Meeting at National IIai.t.. There
was a large mid enthusiastic gathering at Na

ing was culled to order by W. H. Kein, Esq.,

buig, to the auuieuce. Air. Pope saug a satirical
song, reflecting on the President, which was
received with laughter and applause, and was
Genetul Hawl-y, Governor of Connecticut,
was then introduced, and said ne was unpre
pared to addiess the meeting. He brought ko.xI
tidiugs from Connecticut, w here the Union party
stood erect. Pennsylvania aid not sutler from
the backsliding of one of her Senators, neither
does Connecticut feel the aoostacy ot one ot
hers. The great mas-es are with us, aud firm in
the cause ot the Union. The women sent the'r
husbands, children, and all they held dear, to
the baUle-ticld. Three huudred thousand men
have died, anu, it need be, three hundred thou
sand more will be found to sacrifice themselves
on the altar of lreedom. It was not the mere
flag that called out all this enthusiasm aud dev
tion, but it was because that tlag was the symbol
ol a great republican Government.

General Burnside, Governor of Rhode Island,
was introduced amidst enthusiastic cheering.
and the band playing "Had to the Chief.''
Alter the applause had subsided, the General
addressed the meeting at length, stating that
nine out of tea of the Union solonrs were in
favor of the acnon of Congress. Congress had
advanced one step, and if we encourage them,
they will advance another. The South would
never appeal to arms again, as they were too
Colonel Nelson, ot Tennessee, gave a historv
