rho have rendered
jtiy and navy, was
ie committee that
part of the people of those StateiJjBBjne back, to
be obedient to tbelaws, and acknowreage the su?
premacy of the Constitution of our fathers.
v For what have we passed through this ordeal?
It was to establish the principle that no States
had the power to break up this Government. It
was to put down the rebellion. The r?bellion has
been put down, and for what ? Waa it to destroy
the Stales? [Voices, "Never!"] For what have
all these lives been sacrificed, and all this treasure
expended ? Was it for the purpose of destroying
the States? No. It was for the purpose of pre?
serving the States in the Union of our fathera. It
was for that that you fought; it was for that I toil?
ed; not to break up the Government, but to pot
down the rebellion.and preserve the union of the
States. That is what we have been contending
for, and to establish the fact that the nation can
lift itself above and beyond internal foes and trea?
son, and traitors at home.
When the rebellion in Massachusetts was put
down, did that put Massachusetts out of the Union
and destroy the State? When the rebellion in
Pennsylvania was put down, did that destroy the
State and put it out of the Union?, So,' when' the
recent great rebellion was put down, and the Con?
stitution and laws of the country were restored,
the States engaged in it stood as part of the Unio J.
The rebellion being crushed and the law being re?
stored, the Constitution being acknowledged,
those States stand in the Union, constituting a
ftart of the glorious and bright galaxy of stars.
In passing throng! this ordeal what has been done ?
In Tennessee, under'the direction of my lamented pre?
decessor, we commenced the work of restoration, and
we succeeded, before I came here, in restoring the rela?
tions which had existed between Tennessee and the rest
of the Union, with one exception, and that wu the re?
lation of representation. I came to Washington, and.
ander extraordinary circumstance^, succeeded to the
Presidential chair. What then? The Congress of the
United States had adjourned without presenting any I
plan. I then proceeded as I had done in my own state,
under the direction of the Government, to restore the
sther States; and how did we begin? We found that
the people bid no courts, and we said to the Judges, the 1
littrlct attorneys and the marshals: "Go down andr-' "i
roar courte; the people need the tribunals of justice
M opened." Waa there anything wrong in that?
vThe courts were opened. What else? WoJootod out,
ndaNKtaat the people down there had no 'mails ; they
tad bee? interruptcdaad cut off by the operations of the
ebeJUos. We said to the Postmaster-General, "Let the
^dpvpLge facilities fur mail communication, and let
herfo?gin\again to understand what we au feel oed
hink, that w<are ono people," We looked out again,
nd saw that -there was a blockade-that the custom
tortaeaprsre all elated. We said, "open the doors of the
nstonrhonsfs, ?sd remove the blockade:'let trade and
ommeroeand the pursuits of peaM-WScfestored,'' and
t waa dose. We tuns travelled on, step ' by step, open
ag up custom houses, appointing collectors, establish- !
ag mail iaolliUes restoring all the relations that had ,
?en Interrupted by the rebellion. Wu thjmanything
indertaken to be dane hero that waa uot authoriasd by ;
be Constitution ?-that waa not justified by the great '
leceaalties of th* case ?-that has not been clearly con- .
enan: with the Constitution, and with the genius and ,
heory of our Government ?
What remained to be done? One other thing remain- '
d to demonstrate lathe civilized and pagan world that .
te had passed aucc?W olly through the third ordeal nf
ar national existence, .and proved that our Gotera- .
lent was perpetual. A great principle waa to here- .
sored which was established in our r?volu toa. When .j
or athen were contending against the power of Great 1
fflhtu, what wasj>ue ui the principal causea of their
onsMaint? lr. wis that they were denied representa- <
lon. They complained of taxatloo without representa
ion. rohc'ra.ifcsuia of tho great pr nellies laid down

] with your he'p and countenance and yo ur encourage ?
ment, I shall go through on that line, and when I come
- to t*lk about sailors and soldiers, about this to be done
sud that to be done, all I want is for you to await and1
see, 6 -j far as the future is concerned. Wait and see if I
do not stand by you, although every other may falter
andfalL . I
Iwarit to see measures of policy brought forward that ?
wilt advance the interests of the people, and of that por- I
tlon of the people who constituted the gallant and brave !
men who in both branches of the' service have upheld '
the national flag, and sustained the country in the re?
cent struggle. I thank you, gentlemen, for your encour?
agement; I thank you lor your countenance on this
occasion. It cheers me and gives me strength to per?
form the work before me.
If we are true to ourselves. If we are true to the Con?
stitution, the day ia not far distant when this Govern
ment will be restored. Let us go on and restore the
Government; let us enlarge the area of our commerce
and trade; let us not only Inspire confidence at home,
but resppcfcaoToad, by letting the nation resume ita
career .of prosperity and greatness. I know that some |
will find fau't with me, and say I am too ltnientand
kind, and all that If we are all to be put to death or ?
punished or thrown away for one offence as far tba sec- .1
ond offence, and were to be lost and excluded from sp- >
ciety and com ai uni nu with our fellow-men, how many' <
of us would be lett? . J
I have felt, when I have done wrong ard repented of" \
it. that I was aa sincere and honest aa if ,1 had never' \
done wrong at alL Then we must reason with each 9
other, and understand our nature and what is necessary >
to restore peace.and harmony to a distracted and di- <
Tided people In time of war lt is right to burn villages, ? \
sack cities^ud desolate fields, to Jay waste a country i
and cripplCTuid reduce the enemy ; but In time of peace ,
the converse of that course ls precisely the right one <
and the true policy, ii a nation la to rebuild Its cities,
restore its villages, renew its fields of agricul- '
ture; and occupations cf peace and prosperity to be '
restored. I 'know there some who have, been at '
home calculating during the war, and who bring
IO the consideration . of questions of peace said 1
harmony and the occupations of civil life all. the, i
feelings of resentment which animated us when the ex j
fitement was np and running high; but take the brave SJ
men who lustalnM the flag on' the field and on tho '
wave, and you wih find better feelings and bet'er Jndg- "
vant on these questions than you will find with tho?e (
who have been sitting in the closet and n over amslt
gunpowder. Yes, from the private up to the command?
ing general, they know better how to treat tho present i
circumstances than any of these dos?t patriots and
humanitaria cs. Then, my ooun trymeu, feUow-cttizens, r
soldiers and sailors, let us rejoice that peace has come- ,
Let ns rejoice that ihe relations of tho States ore about
being restored. Let us make every" effort we caa,e?. J
proper principles, to restore the relations which existed *
between the Federal Government and the States. t
I thank God that peace ls restored ; I thank God that
Mr brave mon can return to their families and bornes -?
and resume their peaceful avocations; I thank Qod- that v.
tho baleful planet of fire and blood, which aasbort time r
ago waa in the ascendant, haa Men ctfased'Tway by the
benignen t star of peace. Now that the bow of peace ls
suspended in the heavens, let ns cult?vate the arts and
flattons of peace, and all those associations which ap?
pertain to men in peace.
The time is not distant when we can have a political t
millennium, a political jubilee; and when we can pro- o
claim to all the nattons of the earth that we are again?? o
united people, and that we have triumphantly passed h
through our third ordeal-having peace at home, and .
power to bid defiance to all the world.
Bern em ber on* thing, gentlemen, that in my past life,
?lough alanderer- may have misrepresented me, no one' J
an say that I ever deceived or betrayed bim. It will be ]
'jr you to aee in the future who will redeem ali bis* i
promise*, and who will be most faithful. I thank you, ]
