LETTER FR03I IIOX. D. C. HC3IPIIREIS,
Congress Gaining Strength every day
the People will Sustain It.
THE TEST OATH WILL NOT BK RE TEA I.ED.
Let all who cherish the 'expectation of
whipping out Congress read the following
letter irom lion. D. J. li umpnrcys a dis
tinguished Conservative of Alabama:
"Washington, Jan. 21, ISM.
To the Editor of tbe Huntsville Advocate:
There is no more probability of the mem
bers from Alabama, of either House or
Senate, getting a seat, cither now or ever,
than there is of their getting into the Brit
ish Parliament. And 1 tell you. that the feel
ing is growing stronger every day against the
repeal of the act prescribing the Oath. And
as to the Alabama militia being armed, you
may tell the truth, whether they fall out
with me or not, that there is no such thing
going to be done, unless the negro is counted
and taken as a part of the militia. There is
no use to mince this thing. The whole, en
tire legislation of the Alabama body now
assembled at Montgomery, every word,
every sentence, every paragraph, every
pyllablc, every idea, embodied, contained
or incorporated in any of their foolish com
pilations the are not to be dignified by
thc appellation of laws making a discrimi
nation against the negro as to civil rights,
immunities and privileges, arc declared to be
inoperative, null and void are declared to
be dead, the putrid remains of the corpse
of slavery, and to be buried out of sight
by the agents and officers of the Federal
United States Government. And tell our
ft-jl'le, also, that if they arc Iking in expecta
tion, or icish, or desire, or hope of ever getting
rid as they uovld express it of Yankee or
Federal influence, or of ever again having it
in their poicer, physically or politically, to dis
criminate by State or county or corporation
rules against the negro, they are expecting what
they icill never realize. And as to any war
of the races that might be feaved to take
place-in the Cotton States, there arc not
white people enougli to make any war.
And the respect winch the negro has always
f-hown to submit to law, will be a sure guar
antee against any war on his part against
acts of Congress.
.Not only are the views of the free
boil, anti-slavery, constitutional amendment
friends to be sustained by the great body of
the people North, but when that anti-aris-tocsatic
feeling and principle, which has
always existed in the South, save on the
negro question, shall exhibit itself, and in
its liberality shall embrace all races, then
right in the cotton States, will these views be
sustained too. And blustering against it
iccn't icin. Why, what has been accom
plished towards this end in the brief space
of eight months? There is another thing
about this matter the men who arc the
loudest in the praise of the effort to uphold
and establish the Confederacy, are being
made the instruments of accomplishing the
behests of the Government at "Washington.
Sec how gracefully they yielded to the order
to adopt the constitutional amendment abol
ishing slavery. It was always foolish to
have opposed it. And 3-ou will sec how
gracefully the State officers will yield to the
acts of Congress, throwing the protection
of the power of the General Government
around and about the freed men. It is no
idle speculation as to whether these bills
now before the Congress, will pass or not,
for so sure as there is a test oath or that
the constitutional amendment was proposed'
by Congress, so sure will these bills pass.
In fact, they are more certain to pass 1'ian
was the amendment sure of ratification.
For Congress is constitutionally bound to
pass laws securing the freedom of every
body. And in the legal sense, as they ju
dicially know that there is a race in the
Cotton or insurgent States from which the
Legislature of those States are withholding
proper protection, and have already assurn
ed to pass laws pretending to follow out
the polity of the Administration, when the
Administration itself was and is in favor of)
freedom and equality of rights before the !
law discriminating most odiously against j
that race, t. ongross is bound to take charge
of the question and sec to it that all people
of all races and color have a fair start in
the journey of life.
The practical operation ot the acts of
Congress will be to establish tribunals and
forums, under Federal officers, to hear and
determine every matter in which a freeman,
free negro or mulatto or person ever held in
blaver-, and refugees, shall or may be con
cerned. And any person who undertakes
to execute a State law, making any dis
crimination between a white man tind ne
groes, shall be fined in a thousand dollars
and imprisoned twelve months, one or both.
And the Legislature may sit there for
fis mouths, and tax the people, and cat out
their substance, in endeavoring to evade or
to avoid the force and operation of these
laws, and all that they do in that direction
wSl be as a dead letter, and only giving
fresh evidence of a rebellious spirit.
