' The poesct8ion or the mouth ot th
Bsippi-the control oi the trade of
the northwest, was the prize oi (tie contest.
General Jackson was shut up in New Or

Ins new levies and his unarmed rfcruits
The rioht bank of the river commanded
his position.. Ilis batteries thcro were
small and fejbly manned. - Do bad open

enemy advanced to attack him. They
had met with success on the coast. They

The balletic on the river wcro token

It was tint the canal on which the line
was formed it was not tho rampart or
cotton bales but it was tha patience- and
courage and patriotic ardor, inspired by
the dauntles spirit or their matchless
chief, which retrieved the day and scour
ed tho victory.
Do wo not need the fame spirit now r
For seventy years our Government has
secured the object of its formation. The
States have r.'ci formed their allotted luno
lions. They existed as self-governing
colonics almost from the settlement oi
the cootinent. Thry became sovereign
States at the declaration of independence.
The States formed the confederation.
The States earned on tho Revolutionary
War.' The States formed the fjonstitu
tlon. The 8taies ratified it Tho State,
created the Union. The States upheld
tha mighty arm of Washington. The
Slates saved the Government in 1800.
The State fought the war of 1812. The
Slates rescued tho Government from the
dangers i,f Hartford Convcntionism The
States sent vopntcers to Mexico. Aye,
and in this great civil war the States ena
bled the Federal Government to overcomo
tho armies of the Confederate and to
maintain its supremacy over every foot
of its territory.
: The States have been at once the main
Strength of tho Federal Government and
the guardians and. guarantee ot personal
If their organizations have given them
power to barm, so also have they given
tbcm power for good ; and at every peri
od of our history has this power vindica
ted the rightfulness of its existence and
the wisdom cf those wbo left it to the
States untouched. '
But now a bold, persistent, audacious
attempt is made to wrest it from the
States, and to ohange the spirit and form
of the Government. Tho pretext is that
the ordinances of secession destroyed the
Union, and that it must be reconstructed,
Tbo method is the constitutional amend
ment. The applianocs are the denial of
representation to the Southern States, and
if rcccssary, their reduction to tho condt
tion of territories. The real purpose is
top consolidation of the Government and
the substitution of an irresponsible, unbri
died majority, which the Radicals expeet
to nom torever oeoause Hiey nappsn to
hold it now.' " "
Constitutional Amendment 11 I will
not detain yon with an analysis of its pro
visionB. Yon know them well. It wrests
from the State the power to define and
proteot the rigVs of its own people. It
perverts the rule of representation. , It
dcorees and enforces punuhmonts onset-
ted after the deed has been committed.
It saorifioet great and paramount interests
to the desire of Tevenge and to tempora
ry paity ascendency. . It subverts inatitu
lions which are beneficent and stable that
it may enforco a rule of suffrage not yet
adopted at tho North, whose chief rcoora
mondation is that it is utterly abhorrent
io the people of the South. It demands
of . twenty-elx' Btates, the surrender of
powers wbieh are dear to them, in order
that it may .doprivo -ten other Statoa of
tha same powers. Why? - Constitution

at1 essential to the maintainiinoo of tha
Uoion.;' The great founder df our Organ
isation' hod apostle bf our creed,' Thomas'
Jefferson, proclaimed it id his first Inau-
gnfar address. ' The supremacy of the
Constitution and all laws made in pursu
ance thereof! the reservation of all pow
ers not granted to Congress these are
tho esoeotial elements of our faith, and to
these wo have adhered with unfaltering
fidelity. : " 1 ' .
euall we adhere to thorn still, or shall
we now abandon them for the produced
experiment of oonsolidation ? ''
We are in the midst of revolution.
Radical ideas carried into execution by
lawless means the anchorage of publio
opinion everywhere giving way our op-
puaeuu in power in iiu oiuiea auu in
Congress; and everywhere using that
power to subvert the Constitution, to cx
elude btates from their representation, to
break up their social system, to foment
disoord and disorder in thoir communities
and to impair their material prosperity,
and now they graciously propose to cease
tins abuse of power it the Males both
North and South will oonsent to their
own degradation. I am a eitizen and na
tive ot umo. 1 speak to Uhio men,
whose first duty is to caro Tor the inter
ests of their own State and her people
And speaking thus, oonsidoring only the
inUuence on our own otate and institu
tions,5 I say it is our duty, even if the
kiugdi ius of the earth wore offered at
that pricj to say as was said to the temp
tor of old, ."Oct tbee behind me, Satan."
Let us stand fast to our integrity at every
buzzard let us hold on to the sound doc
trine as delivered to us by the fathers
It is the ark of our safety it is the only
hope of rcpublioun government it is tho
only bulwark against despotism. ,
I do not conceal from myself that we
have been defeated and that wa may bo
defeated again. Yet I look with hope to
tho future. The President is firm in his
position and decided in bis action. The
Supreme Court of tho United Btates,
true at last lo ancient fume, trueto the
purposes of its creation ; rising above the
dictates of passion, above the behests of
party, has vindicated in noble terms the
integrity of the Constitution. It has do
nounccd the doom of military commis
sions for tho trial of citizens, and set the
seal of its reprobation upon tho base pre
text of military necessity.
At tho elections last fall tho Democra
cy polled 1,800,000 votes outof 4,000.000
A change of fitly votes in a thousand of
fifty thousand in a million less than six
per cent would have given ns a majori
ity of the popular voto. , . .
la Pennsylvania, New York and In
diana, casting seventy two votes in the
cleatornl college and 1,000,000 votes by
tho people, we were defcateii lel than
44,000. A change of less than one and
a half per ecnt of less than fifteen in a
thousand would have given us a majori
ty. In eleven Slates ol tha Union, ex
cluding ontiroly tho Soulhcrn States, a
ohange of 30,000 votes on the result of
last fall will, in labs, elect a Prosidenl
and a majority of Congress.

' Patience ahd fortitude and vigor are as
necessary for success in politics ns in war.
And what shall the Southern States do
in their extremity f I have said that I
am speaking' as an Ohio man to Ohio mon
of thoir duty lo their own State and peo
ple, i would not dictato, nor urgo, qor
even advise others., They mu.it tollow
the dictates of their judgncnU and coa
soionoes. Hut if I might be permitted to
say what lies near my heart, it would be
this : Let the Southern States be passive
and patient. They took up arms tbey
defeated they surrendered. Ibat sur
render involves the rcocssity ol faithful
obedionce to the Corstitution and tho
laws.. That-faithful obedionce entitles
them to the rights and liberties guaranteed
by tho Constitution and the laws. . Tboy
may bo powerless to secure these right
and liberties. They may be rubjeoted by
tho strong arm to oppression and wrong.
But they can deolloe to advise a ohange
of the Constitution; "they can refuse to
oonsont to the creation of a despotism ;
they can refuse to do voluntarily that
wuion tnoir juagmoni rojeots ana tneir
feeling detests ; they can maintain thoir
honor and self respsot ) tbey oan at least
decline to be th . faoile . instruments of
their own degradation. And they oan
bear the conscquonccs of this eouice.
They may bo dcprivod of representation

We will resist it by every means known
to the Constitution. But if the attempt
shonld be mado successfully, this, too, be
ing imposed by superior foroo, they can
bear.. Let them oppose it by. the passive
resistanoe of masterly inactivity ; let them
repair thoir shtttorcd fortunes , let them
reconstruct tbeir industrial system ; let
them woo prosperity and wealth ; let their
fblds whiten with oolton, and their plan
tations yield their oorn, and sugar and
rico. ' Let thtm, moved by the'r own just
impulses and Dot by dioiation from others
revise, if nceessary, tbeir legislation in
regard to trie frecdinen, and secure to them
all tbeir oivil rights by the same process
of law, enforced by the same penalties as
are used in the case of tbo wbito men.
Let them, if necessary to secure this am
pfc protootion, revise and change the pub
lio opinion of their communities. . Let
them be jealous in securing to them every
opportunity of fitting themselves for their
changed condition, and every advantage
for good development which a healthy,
social and governmental system will per
mit. The necessity of both sections will
coeros socio! and commercial intercourse,
and this in limo "WlU'softcn asperities and
assuage bitterness ond promote good will,
and restoration, if it ever comes at all,
will be upon a sound basis.
Nor in this conneotion is the fact to be
overlooked that very few of the Northern
States have ratified the amendment and
that if all these ten excluded States should
ratify it, seventeen others would be need
ed. They have shown no alacrity to come
forward. Nor is it lo be forgotten that the
bill authorising tho admission of Repre
sentatives and Senators upon the complete
ratification, has never yet passed cither
House of Congress.
By a law of its being falsehood possess

has been beautifully said, forget that the

ever be beforo his eyes, in every vicissi
tude ot prosperity or adversity ; "And

' -BNATE Month, January 14.-Tbe
bill to regulate! the tenure) of offibe canie
up.' Mr - Sherman said the .bill contem
plated nothing unconstitutional at revolu
tionary. Of the' .two .thousand' removals
mad by the President sinoe last summer
not one thousand have bees reported 16
the Senate. If. he believed the Presi-dent-would,
tty harmonise. with the
senate, and eeod in other names after bis
nominees are rejected, he would ba wil
ling, to let him fill the raomoies during
recess, but inerresident bos mamlested
no suoh disposition. :
Without coming to nnal action on tbo
bill, the Senate went into executive ses
sion, and then adjourned.
LTousk. Bills were, introduced that
the President cause Written or printed
discharges to be given all volunteer com
missioned omceis wbo nave been honora
bly discharged from the army or pavy of

exception of Tennessee. '
The bills were referred to appropriate
Mr. Loan read a speech, arraigning the
Presidont for the aots of his administra
tion, and charging that he was privy to
the assassination ot resident Lincoln.
Mr. Ual3 rose lo a question of order
lie said he understood the gontleman to
charge the . President of the United
States with complicity io the assassination
r President Lincoln, and asked if suoh
language was in order.
A page ot Sir. Loan manuscript was
sent to the Clerk s desk, and read as fol
"Tho crime (meaning the assassination
of Mr. Lincoln,) was committed artd the
way was made olear for the succession
The assassins bullet, wielded and direct
ed by rebel hands, and paid for by rebel
gold, made Andrew Johnson President of
the United States. The prico wbioh he
was to pay for the promotion, was treach
ery to the Republio, fidelity to the party
ot treason and rebellion."
The Speaker deoided that the remarks
were in order, the resolution before the
Hou?e being one doclanng it the impera
tive duty ol Congress to impeach the
President. This being the coso, a mem
bcr had a right to state why he thought
so, and the chair could not restrain him.
Mr. Hale chullangcd Mr. Loan to spec-
fy the first partiolo of proof of the char
ges and insisted that it was due to this
body, and made a motion that be should
do so beforo taking his scat.
Mr. Loan declined to do so,
Mr. Banks offt-rcd a resolution that it is
tho duty of the government to give effect
to the moral sentiment ot the nation,
through all its agencies, for the purpose
of preventing the bringing of coolies into
this hemisphere or adjacent islands.
The bill for the adminission ot .Nebras
ka came up, and the question of impar
tial suffrage was debated. The House
seoonded tho previous quostion by a vote
of 68 to 67, but without coming to a vote
on the bill, adjourned.

titions were presented, including one
from the oitisens of Bcllcfontaiue, Ohio
asking Congress to prnlnbit any person
addicted to intoxication liquor from hold

Mr. Edmunds opposed the imecdment
as destroying tpe symmetry ot the bill.
