there is no section of the country where the
Constitution and laws of the United States
find a more prompt and entire obedience
than in those States, among those people
who were lately in arms against them, or
where there is less purpose or danger of any
future attempt to ovdrthrow their autho
It would seem to be both natural and in
evitable that, in States or sections so re
cently swept by the whirlwind of war,where
all the ordinary modes and methods of or
ganized industry have been broken up, and
the bonds and influences that guarantee so
cial order have been destroyed, where thou
sands and tens of thousands of turbulenL
spirits have been suddenly loosed from the
discipline of war, and thrown, without re
sources or restraint, upon a disorganized,
chaotic society, and where the keen sense
of defeat is added to the overthrow of am
bition and hope, scenes of violence should
'defy, for a time, the imperfect discipline of
law, and excite anew the fears and fore
bodings of the patriotic and well-dis
posed. It is unquestionably true that lo
cal disturbances of this kind, accompanied
by more or less of violence, do still occur,
but they are confined entirely to the cities
and larger towns,of the Southern States,
where different races and interests are
brought most closely in contact, and where
passions and resentments are always most
easily fed and fanned into:outbreak. And
even there they are quite as much the fruit
of untimely and hurtful political agitation
as of any hostility on the part of the people
to *the authority of the National Govern
But the'concurrent testimony of those
best acquainted with the condition of so
ciety and the state of public sentiment is
the South, including that of its.representa
tives in this Convention, establishes the
fact that the great mass of the Southern
people accept, with as full and sincere sub
mission as do the people of the other States,
the re-established supremacy of the nation
al authority, and are prepared, in the most
loyal spirit, and with a zeal quickened alike
by their interest and their pride, to co-ope
rate with other States and sections in what
ever may be necessary to defend the rights,
maintain the honor, and promote the wel
fare of our common country.
History affords nolinstance where a*peo
ple so:powerful in numbers, in resources,
and in; public spirit, after a war so long in
its duration, so destructive in its progress,
and so adverse in its issues, have accepted
defeat and its consequences with so much
of good faith as has marked the conduct
of the people lately in insurrection against
the United Stakes. Beyond all question,
this has been largely due to the wise gene
rosity with which their enforced surrender
was accepted by the President of the United
States, and the generals in imnmediate comn
mand of their armies, and to the liberal
measures which were afterwards taken to
restore order, tranquility and law to the
States, where all had for the time been
overthrown. No steps could have been
better calenlated to command ths respect,
win the confidence, revive the patriotism
and secure the permanent and affectionate
allegiance of the people of the South to the
Constitution and laws of the Union, than
th~ose which have been so firmly taken and
so steadfastly pursued by the President of
the United States.
And if that confidence and loyalty have
been since impaired-if the people of the
South are to-day less cordial in their alle
giance than they were immediately upon
the close of the war-we believe it is due
to the changed tone of the legislative de
partment of the General Government to
wards them; to the action by which Con
gress has endeavored to supplant and de
feat the President's wise and beneficent
policy of restoration; to their exclusion
from all participation in our common Gov
ernment; to the withdrawal from them of
rights conferred and guaranteed by the
Constitution, and to the evident purpose of
Congress, in the exercise of a usurped and
unlawful authority, to reduce them from the
rank of free and equal members of a Re
public of States, with ri*hts and dignities
umimpaired, to the condition of conquered
provinces and a conquered people-in all
things subordinate and subject to the will
of their conquerors-free only to obey laws,
in making which they are 'not allowed to
No people has ever yet existed whose
loyalty and faith such treatment, long con
tinued, would not alienate and impair, and
the ten millions of Americans who live in
the South, would be unworthy citizens of a
free country; degenerate sons of an heroic
ancestry, unfit ever to become guardians
>f the rights and liberties bequeathed to us
by the fathers ann founders of this Repub-,
lie, if they could accept, with uncomplain
ig submission, the humiliation thus sought
to be imposed upon them. Resentment of
injustice is always and everywhere essential
to freedom; and the spirit which prompts
the States and people lately in insurrection,
but insurgents now no longer, to protest
against the imposition of unjust and de
grading conditions, makes them all the
more worthy to share in the government of
a free commonwealth, and gives still firmer
assurance of the future power and freedom
of the Republic.
For whatever responsibility the Southern
people may have incurred in resisting the
authority of the National Government, and
ini taking up arms for its overthrow, they
may be held to answer as individuals be
fore the judicial tribunals of the land..; and
for that conduct, as societies and organized
communities, they have already paid the
most fearful penalties that can fall on of
fending States, in the losses, the sufferings,
and the humiliations of unsuccessful war.
But whatever may be the guilt or the
punishment of the conscious authors of
the insurrection, candor and common jus
tice demand the concession that the great
mass of those who became involved in its
responsibility acted upon what they be
lieved to be their duty, in defence of what
they had been taught to believe their rights,
or under a compulsion, physical and moral,
which they were powerless to resist.
Nor can it be amiss to remember that,
terrible as have been the bereavements and
clusively upon neither section, and upon
neither party ; that they have fallen indeed
with a far greater weight upon those with
whom the war began. That in the death
of relatives and friends, the dispersion of
families, the disruption of social systems
and social ties; overthrow of Governments,
ot law, and of order; the destruction of
property, and of forms, and modes and
means of industry; the loss of political,
commercial, and moral influence, in every
shape and form which great calamities can
assume, the States and people which en
gaged in the war against the Government
of the United States have suffered ten-fold
more than those who remained in allegiance
to the Constitution and laws.
These considerations may not, as they
certainly do not, justify the action of the
people of the insurgent States; but no just
or generous mind will refuse to them very
considerable weight in determining the line
of conduct which the Government of the
United States should pursue towards them.
They accept, if not with alacrity, certainly
without sullen resentment, the defeat and
overthrow they have sustained. They ac
knowledge and acquiesce in the result, to
themselves and the country, which that de
feat involves. They no longer claim for
any State the right to secede from the Union.
They no longer assert for any State an alle
giance paramount to that which is due to
the General Government. They have ac
cepted the destruction of slavery, abolished
it by their State Constitutions, and concurred
with the States and people of the whole
Union in prohibiting its existence forever
upon the soil or within the jurisdiction of
the United States. They indicate and
evince their purpose just so fast as may be
possible and safe to adapt their domestic
laws to the changed condition of their so
ciety, and to secure by the law and its tri
bunals equal and impartial justice to all
classes of their inhabitants. They admit
the invalidity of all acts of resistance to the
national authority, and of all debts incurred
in attempting its overthrow. They avow
their willingness to share the burdens and
discharge all the duties and obligations
which rest upon them in common with other
States and other sections of the Union, and
they renew, through their rep esentatives
in this Convention, by all their public cou
duct in every way, and by the most solemn
acts by which States and societies can
pledge their faith, their engagement to bear
true faith and allegiance, through all times
to come, to the Constitution of the United
Sttes, aind to all laws that may be made in
Fellow-countrymen, we call upon you, in
full reliance upon your intelligence and your
patriotism, to accept with generous and un
grudging confidence this full surrender on
the part of those lately in arms against
your authority, and to share with them the
honor and renown that await those who
bring back peace,concord to*j arring States.
The war just closed -with all its sorrows
and disasters-has opened a new career of
glory to the nation it has saved. It has
swept away the hostilities of sentiment and
of interest which were a standing menace to
its peace. It has destroyod the institution
of slavery-always a cause of sectional agi
tation and strife-and has opened to our
country the way to unity of interest, of
principle and of action, through all time to
come. It has developed in both sections a
military capacity and aptitude for achieve
ments of war, both by sea and land, before
unknown even to ourselves,, and destined to
exercise hereafter, under united councils,
an important mnfluence upon character and
destiny of the continent and the world,
and w~hile it has thus revealed, disciplined
and compacted ctur power, it has proved to
us, beyond controversy or doubt, by the
course pursued towards both contending
sections by foreign powers, that we must
be the guardians of our own independence,
and that the principles of republican free
dom we represent can find among the nations
of the earth no friends or defenders but
We call upon you, therefore, by every
consideration of your own dignity and safe
t, and in the name of liberty throughout
t~he world, to complete the work of restora
tion and peace which the President of the
United States has so well begun, and which
the policy adopted and the principles as
serted by the present Congress alone ob
struct. The time is close at hand when
members of a new Congress are to be elect
ed. 1f that Congress shall perpetuate this
policy, and by excluding loyal States and
people from representation in its halls, shall
continue the usurpation by whizh the legis
lative powers of the Government are now
exercised, common prudence compels us
to anticipate augmented discontent, a sul
len withdrawal from the duties and obliga
tions of the Federal Government ; internal
dissensions and a general collision of senti
ments, and pretensions which may renew, in
a still more fearful shape, the civil war from
which we have just emerged.
We call upon you to interpose your pow
er to prevent the recurrence ofso transcend
ant a calamity. We call upon you in every
Congressional District of every State to se
cure the election of members who, what
ever other difference may characterize their
political action, will unite in recognizing the
right of every State of the Union to repre
sentation in Congress, and who will admit
to seats is either' branch every loyal .repre
sentative from every State in allegiance to
the Government, who may be found by
each House, in the exercise of the power
conferred upon it by the Constitution, to
have been duly elected, returned and quali
fied for a seat therein.
When this shall have been done, the Gov
ernment will have been restored to its mnteg,~
rity. The Constitution of the United States
will have been re-established in its full su
premacy, and the American Union will have
again become what it was designed to be by
those who formed it-a sovereign nation,
composed of separate States, each like it
self, moving in a distinct and independent
sphere, exercising powers defined and re
served by a common Constitution, and rest
ing upon the assent, the confidence, and co
operation of all the States and all the peopTie
subject to its authority. Thus re-organized
and restored to their constitutional relations,
the States and the General Government can
enter in a fraternal spirit, with a common
purpos .a a common inatt nnon what.
ever reforms the security of personal rights,
the enlargement of popular liberty, and the
perfection of our republican institutions
DECLARATION OF PRINCIPLES.
The National Union Convention, now ass
sembled in the city of Philadelphia, com
posed of delegates from every State and
Territory in the Union, admonished by the
solemn lessons which for the last five years
it has pleased the Supreme Ruler of the Uni
verse to give to the American people, prom
foundly grateful for the return of peace, de
sirous, as are a large majority of their coun,
trymen, in all sincerity, to forget and fors
give the past, revering the Constitution
as it came to us from our ancestors, regard
ing the Union in its restoration as more sa
cred than ever, looking with deep anxiety
into the future as of instant and continuing
trial, hereby issues and proclaims the follow
ing declaration of principles and purposes on
which they have with perfect unanimity
1. We hail with gratitude to Almighty
God the end of the war and the return of
peace to an afflicted and beloved land.
2. The war just closed has maintained the
authority of the Constitution with all the
powers which it confers and all the restric
tions which it imposes upon the General
Government, unabridged.and unaltered, and
it has preserved the Union with the equal
rights, dignity and authority of the States
perfect and unimpaired.
3. Representation in the Congress of the
United States and in the Electoral College is
a right recognized by the Constitution as
abiding in every State, and as a duty im
posed upon its people, fundamental in its
nature and essential to the existance of our
republican institutions, and neither Congress
nor the General Government has any aus
thority of power to deny this right to any
State or to withhold enjoyment, under the
Constitution, from the people thereof.
4 We call upon the people of the United
States to elect to Congress as members there
of none but men who admit the fundamental
right of representation, and who will receive
to seats therein loyal representatives from
every State in allegiance to the United
States, subject to the constitutional right of
each house to judge of the elections, returns
and qualifications of its own members.
5. the Constitution of the United States
and the laws made in pursuance thereof are
the supreme law of the land, anything in the
Constitution or laws of any State to the con,
trary notwithstanding. All the power not
conferred by the Constitution upon the Gen
eral Goverument, nor prohibited by it to the
States, are reserved to the States or to the
people thereof; and among the rights thus
reserved to the States is the right to pre'
scribe qualifications for the elective franchise
therein, with which right Congress cannot
interfere. No State or combination of States
has the right to withdraw from the Union.
or to exclude through their action in ConM
gress or otherwise, any other State or States
from the Union. .The union of these States
is perpetual, and its Government is of sus
preme authority, within the restrictions and
limitations of the Constitution.
6. Such amendment to the Constitution of
the United States may be made by the peo
ple thereof as they way deem expedient, but
only in the mode pointed out by its provis
ions; and in proposing such amendments,
whether by Congress or by a convention,
and in ratifying the same, all the States of
the Union have an equal an~ indefeasible
right to a voice and a vote thereon.
7. Slavery is abolished and forever prow
hibited, and there is neither desire nor pur
pose on the part of the Southern States that
it should ever be re,established upon the soil
or within the jurisdidtion of the United
States; and the enfranchised slaves in all the
States of the Union should receive, in com
mon with all their inhabitants, equal pro
tection in every right of person and of prop
8. While we regard as utterly invalid, and
never to be assumed or made of binding
force, any obligation incurred or undertaken
in making war against the United States, we
hold the debt of the nation to be sacred and
inviolable, and we proclaim our purpose to
maintain unimpeached the honor and the
faith of the republic.
9. It is the duty of the National Govern.
ment to recognize the services of the Federal
soldiers and sailors in the contest just closed,
by meeting promptly all their just and
rightful claims for the services they have
rendered the nation, and by extending to
those of them who have fallen the most gen%
erous and considerate care.
10. In Andrew Johnson, President of the
United States, who in his great office, has
proved steadfast in his devotion to the Con
stitution, the laws and interests of his coun,
try, unmoved by persecution and unswerved
by reproach, having faith unassailable in the
people, and in the precepts of the Govern.'
ment, we recognize a Chief Magistrate wor
thy of the nation and equal to the get
crisis upon which his lot is cast; and we
tender to him, in the discharge of his high
and responsible duties, our profound respect
nd assurance of our cordial and sincere
