If therm was any danger from an or
ganization of the citizens for the pur.
pose indicated, the military are there to
suppress, on the first - appearance, any
inove insurrectionary in its character.
One great object is'to* intduce the people
to come forward 'ii defence'of 'the State
and federal govornments. - General
Washington declared that the 'people,
or the militia, was the urm of the Con.
.stitution, or the arm' of the Uited
States, and, as soon as it is pracicable,
the: original design of the government
should be tesiumed ander the principles
of the great charter of freedom handed
do'wn to the peop1 'by the totinder of
the ropublic. The people must be
trusted with their governmnrit, and if
trust(d my opiniol is that thiey wtvill act
in good faith and restore their- former
constitutional. relations with all the
States Corpposing the 'Union. The
main object of Majbr General Carl
Schurz's mission .to the South was to
aid, a'mnuch as practicable, in carving
out the policy adopted by the goverh
ment for restoring the 'States to their
former relations with the federal govern.
