Ilousa of RepreientatlTes
Mr. STEVENS, of Pennsylvania, resnmlngthe
floor on the bill to provide for the more efficient
government of the lnsnrrectionary States, pre
faced his remarks by stating that the reference
made to him in the correspondence just read was
wholly false. He went on to say that while he
was willing to allow all proper latitude of debate,
any considerable delay at this period of the ses
sion would be fatal to the bill, and he would there
fore ask the House to second the previous ques
tion at one o'clock to-morrow.
This was a bill, he Bald, for the purpose of giving
governments to ten States that were now without
a government. Congress was now almost unani
mously of opinion that there were no governments
In those States known to the Constitution and laws
of the United States. For two years they had been
in a disorganized condition. Two years ago the
armies of a government calling Itself the confede
rate States of America were conquered and that
government dispersed, and by the law of nations
the conqueror had a right to say what kind
of government should be administered there.
The reason why no government had been estab
lished there before was that there had been divi
sion in the councils of the nation, that the Execu
tive had assumed to be a new government, to enact
new laws, and to establish new regulations of au
thority in the conquered territory. The sovereign
power of the nation repudiated, and had utterly
repudiated on all occasions, the authority which
bad thus attempted to establish governments
within those conquered provinces. It had waited
patiently too patiently, be thought in the hope
that some way might be lound to establish har
mony In the councils of the United States, and
that the necessary government for those States
might be agreed upon without collision. That
nope had failed, and the longer Congress waited
the more pertinacious seemed to be the determina
tion of the Executive to maintain his usurpation.
It had now become the duty ot Congress to as
sert its rights and to do its dnty by establishing
some kind of government In those provinces,
which for two years had been in a state of an
archy. For two years the loyal people there had
endured all the horrors of the worst anarchy. Ex
iles, persecutions, murders, had been the order of
the day. The best men of those States were driven
irom their homes and compelled to live on the
cold charity of the cold north, where they were to
be seen living about everywhere, wandering
about, haggard and miserable, the ghosts of the
nnburied dead wandering on this side of the Styx.
He was tor making one other effort to protect
those loyal men from the cruelties, persecutions
andveneeance to which thev were subjected. If
Congress failed to Interfere effectually, it would be
responsible to the civilized world for the grossest
neglect of duty that any nation was ever guilty of
before humanity. In conclusion, he proposed that
epeeches should be limited to twenty minutes.
Messrs. ELDRIDOE and RANDALL, of Penn
Mr. BRANDEGEE, of Connecticut, addressed
the House in support of the bill. Of all the pro
positions that had been submitted from the Joint
Committee on Reconstruction, this bill seemed at
once the clearest, the plainest, the most appro
priate, the freest from constitutional objections,
and the plan the best calculated to accomplish the
two great master aims of reconstruction: the one
the garnering up of the fruits of victory, and the
other the restoration of peace on the only basis on
which peace and union could be restored, to wit:
protection to all, liberty to all, and rights to all.
This proposition commenced at the right end, and
employed the right tools for its accomplishment.
It commenced at the point where Grant left off the
work, at Appomattox, two years ago. It had one
purpose, to hold the revolted communities in the
grasp of war until the spirit of rebellion should be
laid down, as its arms had been laid down two
years ago. He saw in this bill a promise that the
word of the republic shall be unsheathed again;
shall be placed in the hand ot the greatest captain
of the age, and should be held by him suspended
once more over the beads of rebels, with the awful
memory of the reverberation ot the cannon which
opened Richmond to the Federal arms.
Mr. LE BLOND, of Ohio, In rising to oppose
the bill, said that Ohio was to have a State conven
tion on Wednesday next, and, therefore, be would
not ltdulge In high-sounding declamations, (re
ferring to Mr. Brandegee's speech,) but would
present his views in brief form. The adoption of
the law, he said, would be the death-knell of civil
liberty on this continent, and would be the estab
lishment of military despotism over the country.
The preamble of the bill did not embrace a sin
gle truth in It, not one. The State organizations
in those States, he contended, were never broken
up. When the war ended they came back Into the
"Union as they had gone out. All that was neces
sary was a surrender, and a declaration to the
American people that those States no longer made
war against the government of the United States,
but submitted to it, and would be loyal to the gov-
nmant In future.
General Sherman, In his convention with Gene
ral Johnson, baa taia aown me true aoctrine, ana
f that aoctrine had been pursued, it would have
produced harmony and peace, and rendered all
this legislation unnecessary. This bill was the
same In principle as that introduced in the Senate
hi Senator Williams; but that Senator had suttl-
cient regard for the Constitution to leave to the
President his constitutional right as Commander-in-chief
to detail the general oiiicers who were to
jrovern the proposed military districts; but this
Sill deprived the President of that right, and
inriirari ft in General Grant.
The bill, therefore, was unconstitutional even In
that light. He appealed to gentlemen to pause
.nrf where this legislation was taking them.
It was setting aside the right of trial by jury and
ni.iiiira nf habeas corpus. He believed they
bad already prepared articles of impeachment
against the President. He believed the decree had
that the imDeachment would take

but mestrong arm of the American people, wielded
on the bloody battle field, would restore liberty to
ihY people. 7We were drifting to war, and must
bate it unless the people took the matter in hand,
stopped the downward tendency of things, and
restored the government to the basis on which it
was placed by the fathers of tbe CoiiBt tution.
Mr, FINOK followed on the same side, and de
xounced the bill as a nefarious, iniquitous scheme
to overthrow the government. No Koveraraen;
could long continue to be free when one-third or
its people and States were controlled by military
power. He did not believe that the men who sup
ported this bill were the friends of free govern
ment, or were willing that the government should
too controlled and administered In accordance with
Mr. PIKE, of Maine, addressed the House in
support of the bill. It did not seem to him that
the change contemplated by It In the management
of the southern btates was so violent as the gen

THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH. PHILADELPHIA, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 18G7.
(preesion of the rebellion the government of those
States had bn In the hands of the President of
tne United States. Whenever the President chose
to Intervene he had done so. Whenever he was
dissatisfied with the elections or legislative action
there, he had disregarded them, acting as commander-in-chief
of the army; and exeroising with
in himself the powers of the government, he had
intervened and controlled those States, so that the
proposition of this bill was simply to regu
late that Intercourse between the government and
the people of those States, and to specify when,
where, how, and under what circumstances that
power of the general government should be exer
cised. To show the necessity for the passage of this
bill, Mr. Pike related the history of the murder
of three United States soldiers In South Carolina,
of the conviction and sentence of their murderers,
the commutation of the death sentence to Imprl
son men t for life, their transfer from Fort Pickens
to Fort Delaware, and their subsequent discbarge
from enstody under a habeas corpus issued by
Mr. COOPER, of Tennessee, asked Mr. Pike
whether he did not know that the Secretary of
War had sssumed all the responsibility of advising
tne commutation of the sentence, and of removing
the prisoners to Fort Delaware!
Mr. PIKE admitted that that was the case. He
then sent up and had read the testimony of Gen.
Schofleld In relation to the murder ot a freedman
In Virginia by Dr. Watson.
Mr. FAKNSWORTH, of Illinois, followed on
the same side. Referring to what Mr. Le Blond
had said about this bill being the death knell of
civil liberty, be said that If civil liberty meant the
right to slaughter and slay and destroy at plea
sure, then he trusted that this is its death knell.
The bill was framed for the purpose of protecting
all the people in the Insurrectionary States, and
the necessity for It was found in the fact that there
was at present no protection In those disorganized
States afforded by the courts and civil tribunals.
The power of the courts, and of such govern
ments as they bad set up there, was In the hands
of disloyal, unrepentant rebels, who still bad the
same views, the same hatred of loyal men, and of
the institutions of the government, as they had
during the war. The bill was In accordance with
the views of generals of the army who had ex
perience in thesouth Generals Scholleld, Thomas
Baird, Wood and Sickles and he believed It was
also in accordance with the views of tne distin
guished commander of the army. In reply to Mr.
Shellabarger, who said it was very important that
that statement should go before the people, Mr.
Farnsworlh repeated it.
Mr. LE BLOND, oLOhio, asked him whether
be understood hlra ap'saylng that General Grant
approved this meafire !
Mr. FARNSWORTH had not said so, but had
expressed his belief that it was in accordance with
General Grant's views.
Mr. LE BLOND supposed the gentleman did not
claim that he had any personal knowledge on this
Mr. FARNSWORTH said he did not.
Mr. ROGERS, of New Jersey, made an hour's
speech against the bill. He declared that, rather
tban see military governments established in this
country, he for one would use the power which
the Almighty had given him In resisting the in
vasion of his liberties. If this thing were con
tinued it would bring on a war that would rock
the land like an earthquake.
If Congress thus undertook to ride over the Su
preme Court and over the Constitution, then, un
less the people had become slaves, and were unfit
to be freemen, tney would not submit without re
sistance, even though it cost their blood. ("Or
your neck," Mr. Thayer interpolated.)
He was not willing to submit to the galling yoke
of despotism. If that were treason, then, in the
words of Patrick Henry, he would say, "make
the most of it." If the people of the south were
not already so oppressed and broken down as to
be unable to defend themselves, and if they had
the blood of Washington, Jefferson, Madison and
the sages and heroes of the revolution, they would
protest, as their forefathers had protested by their
blood against the despotism of King George. He
hoped the President of the United States would
resist. He hoped that before he submitted he
would use all the military power which the Con
stitution had given him to compel traitors and dis
unionists to obey the law. If Andrew Johnson
would submit to see the country destroyed, his
name would go down with ignominy to posterity
as a living libel, a coward and a traitor.
Mr. BINGHAM, ot Ohio, rising a few minutes
before the hour for recess, declared that he was
not going to yield to the proposition of Mr. Ste
vens, that one rood of the territory within the lines
of the ten States was conquered territory. (Voices
from the Democratic side, "That's right.") A go
vernment did not conquer territory that owed it
The SPEAKER intimated that If Mr. Bingham
desired to go on now the hour for recess might, by
unanimous consent, be deterred.
Mr. SPALDING, of Ohio, objected.
Mr. HILL, of Indiana, moved to extend the ses
sion till 5 P. M.
Mr. SPALDING called for tellers.
Mr. BINGHAM said that he only wanted to offer
an amendment, and he asked the clerk to read it.
The amendment was to strike out the preamble, and
insert In lieu of it "Whereas, It is necessary that
veace and good order shall be enforced In the seve
ral States lately In rebellion, and until said States
respectively snail De tuny restored iu iumr
constitutional relations to the government ot the
United Stales; therefore, &.O." Also, to strive out
the words "so called" before States. Pending the
vote the hour of half-past four arrived, and the
Speaker declared a recess till 1.
The House resumed Its session at half-past seven
o'clock, there being a large attendance both ot
members and spectators.
On motion of lYir.mDVV.EE,li, oi uaiuornia, me
Committee on Appropriations was instructed to
Inquire into the propriety of reporting an appro
priation ot 81HG0 for the payment of census mar
shals for taking the eighth census in California,
and 810,188 for the payment of outstanding Cali
fornia war bonds.
Mr. SOOFIELD. of Pennsylvania, presented
the resolutions of the Pennsylvania Legislature In
relation to the tax on petroleum. Referred to the
Committee on Ways aud Means.
Mr. CHAVES, Delegate from New Mexico, pre
sented the memorial of the Legislature of New
Mexico in relation to the Texan invasion of that
territory. Referred to the Committee on Terri
tories. The Speaker presented Executive communica
tions as follows:
Prom the Secretary of war, in answer to tne
House resolution of the 1st of February, transmit
ting the report of the Chief Engineer relative to
tne wreck sunk near sanay hook uguwouse en
trance to New York harbor.
Also, in suDDlemental answer to the House reso
lution of auth of January, transmitting the report
of the Chief Engineer on the subject of certain
lines oi water communication.
From the Secretary of the Treasury In answer to
the House resolution of July 1), 1U, relative to the
revenue, trade and commerce between the United
States and the British provinces since the abroga
tion of the reciprocity treaty.
All were referred to the Committee on Com
merce. The House resumed the debate on the bill to pro
vide for the more efficient government of the in
surrectionary States. Mr. WILSON, of Iowa, in
the chair as Speaker pro tern.
Mr. BINGHAM addressed the House. He did
not believe that In respect to a bill of the import
ance of this, either a member of the House or a
member of the committee reporting It was com
pelled to take a bill wlthont a why or wherefore.
The bill was the exercise of the highest possible
power of legislation which, under the Oonstltu
tion of the United States, could be exercised by the
representatives ot the people. He believed the
House should make haste slowly; he thought, at
all events, it should allow amendments to be
offered, and to be respectfully considered. He
should consider himself false to the continuous
record of the great body of freemen represented on
this floor, who under God had enacted the laws
through which and by which the nation had been
saved, if he did not strive to have this bill
He challenged any statute to be pointed out,
from the opening of the revolution to this hour,
which by implication or otherwise, by direction or
indirection, intimated the dogma of the Chairman
of the Reconstruction Committee on the part of the
House that those ten Insurrectionary States were
foreign conquered territory. Every statute passed
for tha int six veara asserted the very contrary.
and excluded such a conclusion. In this connec
tion he referred to the statute of 1601, apportioning
the direct tax among the several States aud terri
tories; to the statute apportioning representatives
among the several States; to the proclamation of
the President In 18B3, In which ths President did
not deem it important to say that the "so-called"
States might be represented on the first of January
following, and to the Freedinen's Bureau bill,
particularly the 14th section of it.
Every member, he said, who voted for that bill
averred, under oath, two things: first, that those
Insurgent States are States In the Union; and, se
cond, that their people are citizens of the United
States. There never had been a moment since the
war commenced wheu a single rood of those in
surgent States was foreign territory. They, there,
fore, never became a conquered country, and the
loyal people of those States were no more con
quered? subjects or vassals than any Representa
tive on this floor.
He repudiated such an Idea, aud without Intend
ing the slightest disrespect to the honorable Chair
man, he (Dir. Emcham) repudiated It with scorn
and contempt. The rights of a citizen of the
United States wers In his own keeping, and were
not to be forfeited by tbe crimes of others. The
general purposes ot this bill met his hearty ap
proval, but he desired that the legislation of Con
gress should conform to the Constitution. There
was no statute of the United States under which a
man could be punished in any judicial district of
the United States, north or south, for the marder
of a private citizen. No common law crime, as
such, without a statute authorizing Its punish
ment, was indictable in any court of the United
Mr. ELDRIDOE asked Mr. Bingham to state

that the late insurrectionary States were States

them, and also what laws were to be administered

Mr. BINGHAM said be would answer the ques
tions before he sat down.
Mr. SPALDING asked his colleagne some
Mr. ELDRIDOE reminded Mr. Bingham that
his questions were rot answered.
Mr. BOUTWELL Inquired of Mr. Bingham
how he could reconcile the declaration In his pre.
amble that those insurrectionary States were States
in the Union with his oath to support the Consti
tution, if be did not give them their rights as
States and citizens the same as be would require
iur uisown people and his own State.
Mr. BINGHAM would, on his part, Inquire of
Mr. Boutwell how he reconciled it with his oath
that he voted for the Freedinen's Bureau bill on
the 22d July last, which subjected every one of
those States to its provisions until they should be
restored to thetr constitutional relations!
Mr. BOUTWELL replied that there was no
distinct declaration in the Freedmen's Bureau bill
that they were States.
Mr. BINGHAM asserted that there was such a
Mr. BOUTWELL suggested that that bill re
cognized certain States aud districts as subject to
Mr. LAWRENCE, of Ohio, remarked that they
were mere geographical States.
Mr. BINGHAM added "Yes, and political
States." He quoted the 14th section ot the Freed
men's Bureau bill to bear out his views.
He asked Mr. Boutwell whether he was going to
have so little respect for his oath as to say now that
the State of Virginia, in which Jeff. Davis had
been indioted for high treason, had ceased to be a
State by that treason, so that he could no longer he
held to answer for it In that State, because the State
did not exist. The language of the Constitution
was that a person should be held to answer only
in the State, and in the district of tbe State in
which be consummated the crime.
Mr. BINGHAM said that those States having
broken off their constitutional relations with the
general government, the unlimited power for the
common defence throughont the insurgent States
was exercisable by the Congress of the United
States by the very terms and intendment of the
Constitution, and that power continued in Con
gress. Mr. MAYNARD inquired of Mr. Bingham what
effect tbe bill would have on the existing State
organizations of the south !
Mr. BINGHAM, of Ohio, replied that these
State governments would exercise their functions
under this bill by the sutlrance of the motion, and
only to the extent that those commanding officers
might permit. He did not suppose that it was In
tended to deny by the bill to those organized gov
ernments the right to go on and enforce simple
contracts between man and man. He did not sup
pose that it was intended to enforce contracts of
tbe law of marriages and divorces through courts
martial or military commissions.
Mr. MAYNARD, of Tennessee, inquired fur
ther whether the passage of this bill by Congress
would commit it so far to the recognition of those
State organizations as to embarrass It hereafter if
it thought proper to set them aside.
Mr. BINGHAM did not suppose it would, be
cause Congress might require those State govern
ments to go still further.
Mr. LAWRENCE, of Ohio, sent to the Clerk's
desk and had read an amendment which he pro
posed to offer to the bill.
Mr. HISE, of Kentucky, protested against the
bill, as one finding no shade of warrant or au
thority in the Constitution, and he Intimated his
willingness to yield the floor this evening if he
should have an hour allowed him to-morrow.
A dozen members objected to any interruption
of tbe regular course of the debate, and so
Mr. HISE proceeded with his constitutional ar
gument against the bill, and showed that It pro
posed to establish a pure military despotism, in
which no rights of a citizen would be recognized
After he had been speaking for half an hour, and
the House had become considerably thinned out,
Mr. Wright provoked a general laugh by gravely
suggesting a call of the House, but Mr. Hise con
tinued without paying the least attention to the
Mr. LYNCH, of Maine, sent to the clerk's desk
an amendment which he proposed to offer, aud
which was ordered to be printed.
Mr. INGERSOLL, of Illinois, took the floor to
discuss the bill. There were two sorts of States,
geographical States aud political States. The late
insurrectionary states were geograpnicat states,
but were not under the Constitution political States
in the Union. There was no middle ground pos
sible. They were either States for all purposes or
they were not States for any purpose whatever.
He held that those States having gone into rebel
lion had destroyed all their civil governments un
der the Constitution, and that when the national
arms prevailed they became territories of tbe
United States. The recognization of the southern
confederacy as a de facto government had bsen
complete both at home and abroad, and he chal
lenged any one to show such a historical parallel
where a rebel power was recognized by the old
government, and by all other nations, as a de fic o
government. He drew lrom this inference that
the territory covered by the rebellion became con
Mr. RANDALL, of Pennsylvania, referring to
a remark of Mr. lngersoll about greenbacks, asked
him whether he regarded the law declaring them
legal tenders an exercise of the war power.
Mr. INOEKSOLL admitted that if such a thing
bad been attempted when there was no war or
other great national exigency, It would have been
unconstitutional, lie illustrated the position of
tbe southern States by that of Mexico, after the '
United States troops had conquered that country
in war. As territory it was held by the United
States until there was a treaty of peace.
There had been no treaty ot peace and no de
claration ot peace with the confederate States.
The government had not given up military pos
session of those States, and would not until full
guarantees were given for the protection of tbe
civil and political rights of the people in their ter
ritory. Mr. BINGHAM interrupted, and repeated his
declaration that those insurrectionary Slates were
remaining States, and if not, then there must be a
general jail delivery in those States.
Mr. INGERSOLL held that, nevertheless, that
when a State had none to work and destroyed its
constitutional organization it ceased to exist as a
Whenever the neonle of the south were recon
structed to loyalty the States would reconstruct
themselves. The President's plan of reconstruc
tion had proved a failure; and as for this bill, no
one might hesitate to vote for It lest It might make
matters worse in the south, for things there were
as taa as bad could be. Thev should, therefore,
try this bill.
He had no fear of trusting the powers in this bill
to General Grant. He was confident that they
would be exercised firmly, wisely aud judiciously,
as he had always exercised his powers. It might
be said that the President, as Commander-in-Chief,
might rescind any orders that General
Grant might issue. He admitted that the President
might do so. but he would do it on his own respon
Mr. RANDALL, of Pennsylvania, asked why
it was that the President's authority, which had
been in this bill originally, had been struck out
Mr. INGERSOLL said it was because the peo
ple, as well as Congress, dare not trust him with
Mr. RAN DALL remarked that the Constitution
trusted such powers to the President.
Mr. INGERSOLL went on to say that If the se
lection of general officers to command the districts
were left to the President, he would not select
such men as Grant or Sherman or Helntzelman
or Howard or Thomas, but would select those
who would yield a willing subserviency to him
Mr. HISE asked whether if the President would
set aside any orders issued by Gen. Grant there
was any use in passing this bill I
Mr. INGERSOLL replied that he did not think
the President would have the pluck to do It, and
if be refused to execute the laws of Congress It
would be a good ground of impeachment.
"The only ground you will ever have," broke in
Mr. Strouse, of Pennsylvania.
Mr. INGERSOLL did not kuow that, but he
did believe that Congress might a well stop tbe
consideration of the quest on of reconstruction of
the southern States and of the southern people,
and turn their attention to the reconstruction of
the President. He thought it necessary for Con
grass to consider whether it would continue these
efforts for two years longer with that paramount
obstruction In the way ot reconstruction. the Pre.
sideut ot the United States.
Mr. TRIMBLE inquired whether the exercise ,
hv tha President nf Hi. An.tuminn.l itnwnr trt r. I
voke the order of a subordinate officer could be
regarded as a good ground of Impeachment!
Mr. INGERSOLL answered that the President
might bave the constitutional power to rescind tbe
orders of General Grant, but Congress would
have the right to inquire tor what purpose be did
Mr. TRIMBLE inquired further whether Con
gress had the power 10 pass a bill over-riding the
constitutional rights of the President'!
Mr. 11MJERSOLL declined to admit that this
bill did so. It left the President's power where
the Constitution left It, neither diminishing or aug
menting It. It simply assigned to tbe commanding
General of the army to discbarge certain duties.
He went on to discuss the general bearings of the
bill until his time expired.
Mr. SHAN KLIN obtained the floor.
Mr. TRIMBLE gave notice of an amendment
which he proposed to offer, that no person should
be held for a capital or infamous crime, except on
preseniment by grand jury, Ac.
Tbe House, at half past lo o'clock, adjourned.
