THE WORK OF THE LEGISLATURE.
[FROM OUK OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
COLUMBIA, February 29. ,
Business in both branches of the General
Assembly, to-day, though at first somewhat re?
tarded by the differences on the election of judge,
was brisk, and there was an evident willingness
on the part of most of the members to do a fair
SEDATE.-THE JUDGESHIP QUARREL.
A message from the Hons? reruslng to concur
lu tue Senate amendment to go Into an election
for judge, on Friday uext, was read In the Senate
this morning. Wlmbush said he was in favor of
Indefinitely postponing rhe whole matter. Culbin
thought lt should not be indefinitely nostponcd,
and Friday would be a goo.1 elsy for nie election,
a* by that time the Genial Assembly could cool
down and behave decently, providing .they kept
sober. Johnson-"Does tho gr atientan mean to
insinuate that the legislators ?vere not sober at
the last election ?" Corbin-"I don't meau any?
thing of the sort; I ouly want them to keep .-o
ber." Swal'B Introduced a substitute to go into
an election at l P. M., to-day, which, on a cull of
the nyes and nays, wan rejected. The Senate then
Insisted on Its original amendment, for Friduv,
and sent word thereof to tne Uouse. The lutter
body, a'ter rt scuding the action of the former,
appointed a committee of conference, which was
met by asimilar committee on the part of the
Senate. Arter consultation they agreed to go
int^r an election to-morrow, at 2.30 P. M., and so
reported back to their respective bodies, who
adopted their report, after some little sparring. It
ls sall that the fr?en is of Mr. Earl?, finding him
too heavy a load, will nominate General McGowan
THE RESOLUTION TO RESTRICT DEBATE
caine up In the Senate to-dnv. Leslie said that
ten mluutes would not be BJ melon t upon matters
of importance as would probably, be brought up
during the next five days. He heard it said that
the resolution was only introduced (f>y Mr. Whi?
temore) io choke ot! debate on the railroad bills
about ty be brought to light, and toshowhts slu-;
cerlty he moved to amend the resolution by a id?
ing "except upon bids connected with apprupna
tlons." Wnittemnra denied that the resolution
was in the interest of railroad bills. Corbin
thought that : wen ty minutes, allowed under the
resolution, would be suilk-itnt for any one to ex?
plain his views, and any extrusion wouid ouly be
a was'e or time*. Leslie's amendment was then
put to a vote and rejected, and tue resolution al?
lowing each member to speak twice upon any one
subject, and ten minutes enck tl ne, was ou a
call of ayc3,antl nays adopted.

THE CROWNING OF THE EMPEROR.
A Splendid Pageant in Versailles-Thc
Realization of Bknuircjc'.i Dream
The Unification of Germany.
[Correspondence of the Euston Journal.]
VKKSAILI.ES, January 19
The ceremony, or rather pageant, yesterday.
In Versailles, merits preservation In Immortal
fame, ami 'tis a pity Germany has no poet worthy
Hie tas?. The ?lay was a strange mixture of
dump, old, and wann sunshine, * the rain
occasionally weeping altillo over the heroic ?lead,
und then :ae ?au cussing away the tears, as un?
worthy or so grand an occasion. Toward lu
o'i lock a very brilliant throne beran 'o assembler
in the palace yams, and increased steadily in bril
Haney and volume until the stroke of 12, when tue
Klug, preceded by guards and outriders, drove
furiously to the door or the Sallo des G laces.
Entering tue courtyard from lb? Itu? de Reser?
voirs about ll o'clock, I found drawn up tn line
the King's body guard, taken from all Illeben
r?giments o? the army, and glittering like a rain?
bow in the hundred colors which were so strong?
ly contrasted together. Thronging past them
were thc invited guests of higher rank, hastily
returning the salutations of hundreds or hands
from .every direction, which embodied with the
accustomed servility the expression of their hum?
bleness. Tue Bavarian, Saxou aud Wurtembarg
officers who had been distinguished by the pre?
sentation ol irders were Very numerous, and,
although very different tu type from Ene now su
well known Prussian, would still compare very
favorably wita him. The Bavarians were
especially brilliant in their bright .blue uniforms
and .shining helmets, and many were men or
most majestic presence. Tue Wurtemburgers
were wretchedly dressed-hardly a single officer
even attempting at elegance. The Saxons were,
tis usual, au RtU In a pearance, and were easily
distinguished, aside from their uniforms, by their
Jaunty carriage and mellow accent.
lt was evident thal all the officers of distinction,
rrom ult sections of the army, had left their posts
to assist at Hits ceremony. The tall gigantic men
of the Garde corps, stalkiug about like ghosts in
their white uniforms; the dark-haired, short^ial
wart Brandenburgers: the real Berliners, with
spectacles on nose qpd creases under the arm for
book-carrying; the strapping cavalryman, with
the iron cross at hl3 bi east; and the slender
youth, with long huir combed back under his
casuue, a d sword buckled on his thighs; all hur?
ried* forward to the hall, where the greatest Prus?
sian ceremony of modern limes was to occur.
Presently the guests began to arrive pell-mell.
There was no attempt at gi .ry of equipages, as tn
campaigning lt ls difficult to obtain. Moltke came
in a post carriage showing that it ?tail undertaken
recent Journeys; Bismarck ia a little cal?che,
hardly large enough to hold him; the Crown
Prince in lils- usual very modes: carriage, ami
dozens of officers were compelled to make their
entree through a rain, which suddenly visited us,
in full toilet, on foot. Wagons or all kinds were
used. Half a dozen barons would dash In in an
omnibus, which they had happily discovered; and
thc immortal furniture van, which had such a
(jolly role ai the time the delegation from the
Reichstag presented the address to King winiam,
again came Into plav. Great precautions seemed
to have been taken ror the safety of the King.
There were even lanrtwelirmen wandering care
less!y about In the crowd, with their guns held aa
a huntsman holds his when he hears the deer
breaking cover. How did th: Prussians know
h -w far French fanaticism mtght go?
Large masses of troops were disposed On the
Avenue de Pari- and the Place d'Armes about ll
o'clock und to ward 12 the King len. the Prelec
ture aud proceeded leisurely through the line or
soldiers, who saluted him with deafening shouts
of "Hurrah for the German Emperor^." Arrived
at the chateau gate, the royal carriage drove rap?
idly through ths seething mass of soldiers, strang?
ers and ?Villau Germans, and alighting as the
cuatcpu clock struck the hoar of noon, entered
the Sidle des Glaces by the grand staircase, along
which were arrayed, two and two. the guaid
composed of picked men rrom the various regi?
in the middle or the grand hall, and with Hs
back to the windows which upsn on the park, a
grand altar was erected. Upon ? this altar, which
was gracefully decorated, lighted candles were
placed,and ut each side stood three-pastors, clothed
lu thc sombre habiliments of their order, and as
serliug the supportor the church to the new Em?
pire. Further down the hall was another and
smaller altar, and Jn front ot this were arranged
the standards or all the regiments of the third
army. Between'the two altars, also, were ranged
Bavarians and other soldiers. In iront of ihe
principal altar were several soldiers who had in
times past or in the recent campaign receive I the
iron cross, and two of theta lind their heads
bound up, and showed other marks of recent
I On the platform, at the other end or thc g tilery,
there were many soldiers stationed as the stand
i ard beaters. The King, preceded by trie marshal
or his household and rite court marshal, thu
Counts of I'uckler and Perponcher, and followed
I by his brothers, Prince' i.eorgc or Saxony, the
reigning Duke of Saxc-Coburg, and the majority
of the hereditary Princes. Besides the-e.. as they
rook their places In front of tho grand altar, were
also Hie Crown Pr nee, Pi ince Charles, ol Prussia,
the King's brother, and Grand Master of the Order
of St. John of Jerusalem; the Grand Dukes or
.Saxe-Weiroor, Oldctiburg and Haden, tho Dui.eof

Princes Luitpold and otho of Bavaria, Prluc; Wu?
llara and nuki; Eugene of Wurteinburg, Leopold of I

THE NE'* SENATOR ERO H M IS SOU Ul
A Dulci Arraignment of the Tyrannical
und Aggressive L?gislation of the Rad?
ical Pm ty-A. Uemurkuble Speech.
In the United States Senate, on Wednesday
last, the subject under consideration being the
jolut resolution of the Legislature of Indiana with?
drawing its assent to the ratification or thc tlf
teenth amendment to the constitution, Mr. Blair
. Mr. President. The senator from Indiana, (Mr.
Morton,) with his usual ability, which marks him
us the leader of the administration parry ou this
floor-lhere bel?g many of the oid leaders of the
Republicans who cmiuot be claimed fornicad
minis: rat lon-lus opened thc discussl >n ol ques?
tions which 1 regard us of paramount importance
to the country. These are Hie quos!ions involved
in mc reconstruction ac.s of Congie s. The Re?
publican party, after carrying a Presidential elec
iio.li upon the declaration or the Chicago platform,
that negro suiiiuge was entirely a matter within
Hie control of the Slates; had at thc eu-liing ses?
sion of Congress forced the principle upou the
country in the lift eolith amendment. A proposi?
tion to,SUbmit thc question t<? Pic State Legisla?
tures thereafter to be elected WUK voted down.
Thc Senators and representatives from the
States of Missouri, Kansas, Michigan, New Yolk
and Ohio, voted for that amendment, although Hie '
people of those states had, by immense majori?
ties, ranging from yO,ooo to?o.ooo, rejected negro
suU'rage at the elec lon just preceding. Tho
Legislatures throughout the country, elected prior
to the submission of the amendment, railfl-idlt
without regard to the protests of their constitu?
ents. If amendments could be adopted us the
liueenth had been, against thc wish of the great
mass of the people, we might boon have one to
make the government monarchical and the presi?
dent or the Senate an Officer for life. This might
easily be accomplished through Hie Instramcu
talky of thc carpet bag States.. Upon Hie argu?
ment now made use of, we would have uo right
to protest against such a proceeding, nor to aV
tempt to expose the perfidy by which the people
bau beeu betrayed, for we would be called revo
lutionlsts.ir we did. The argument of the sena?
tor from Wisconsin (Mr. Carpenter,) the other day,
upon the uueousUtulionality of the test oath, was
a vindication of the Democratic position ou that
Mr. Morton asked whether the Bemocratio
party, lu the last Presidential election, did not
take issue squarely that the reconstruction acts
were null and void and ought to be disregarded,
and If thev were not beaten on that.
Mr. Blair thought they did, and he also thought
the only reason they were beaten was because
some or them wanted to dodge. Those acts were
void because Congress undertook to milkt pun?
ishment outside of the constitution.' After the
thirteenth amendment had been secured by the
votes of the carpet-ban States, Congress had gone
to work to disqualify,"without a trial or convic?
tion, Sne-hairor the white citizens of that section.
Such a punishment, being in the nature of a bill
of attainder, was prohibited by the constitution.
Now, ir the crime'committed by the S.mihern
meti iu going into thc rebellion deserved punish?
ment, they simula have been punished aceurdlug
to the constitution. That was the only way in
which we could punish their crime without com?
muting on our part ns great a crime-the crime
ol destroying our own government and over?
throwing our uwu constitution. Slr, in over?
throwing our constitution, lu violating its sacred
guarantees, we committed the same crime with
which we had charged the rebels of the South,
and of which they undoubtedly had been guilty.
That was my view of the case, and believing
that these actH of Congress were unconstitution?
al, null and void, I believe that tho President ol
the Uulted States, who was sworn to maintain Hie
constitution, ought not to allow it to bo trampled
under root: that your conscience, slr, and the
conscience or the majority In these two houses
Should uot dictate to the President what he should'
do In a case of this kimi. He had lils own con?
science to keep clear and spotless, he had sworn
au oath hlmseir, and I remember right well that lt
was not the Democratic convention which sat m
New York two years ago that first gave utterance
to tills doctrine, that the President or the United
State3 was bound by his oath to maintain the con
s:ttution, and not to allow it to be violated in any
way or hy anybody, neither bj Congr-.'ss nor by
his own act nor by the act ot any one else.
And this construction or the constitution, so
manlfe-tly true, so rar from being revolutionary,
ls demonstrated by recent events to be essential
to secure the people In the enjoyment or their
rights, and protect them from usurpation by Con?
gress, the strongest and least responsible and
most dangerous department ortho government.
-We have seen this body not only denying repre?
sentation to the people of eleven States, but foist?
ing governments npon those States, and putting
Its own creatures into the halls of congress as
representatives of those. States, merely to
strengthen the hands of the dominant party.
Tims reinforced, lt wa) enabled to override the
President's veto, and to withdraw from the
courts all power to revise Its action. Coercing
thc President to execute its behests by the fear of
impeachment:, it.-, power has been unlimited. In
this way it has carried out reconstruction acts
and constitutional amendments, and Intends to
perpetuate Ita power In defiance of the popular
Tue danger which now menaces the liberties or
the people could never have occurred ir by reus?
ing to execute Its revolutionary programme tne
peuple could have been called on to decide be?
tween the Congress and the President. There
would have been no delay by adjourning the ques?
tion over for the popular nmpirage In the settle?
ment of the questions at ]ssne, and the only dif?
ference wonld be th?t the questions would have
been fairly presented io and decided by tue pro?
per tribunal, with no possible danger to the pub?
lic peace In the meantime.
This view proceeds upon and accords with the
theory that the people-not tho Congress, or the
President, or the courts-are to govern. Radical?
ism proceeds upon the reverse of this. None of
the measures of reconstruction, so-called, would
have been adopted if they had been submitted^o
thc people In tuts manner. They have been forced
in, serf af fm,- by fraud, by denying persist?
ently that lt was the purpose to impose such
measnres npon the country, and using the power
obtained by such denials to press upon the coun?
try the very measures disavowed before the peo?
ple. The constitutional amendments have been
obtained by coercion in the South, and in defiance
of tho known will or the people of the North.
This, slr, is simply and without any concealment
my views or the theory or our government. That
Congress has been usurping thc powers which be?
long to the President und to the other co-ordinate
branches or the g ivernment, I have not a particle
or doubt. The overwhelming majority obtained '
by the Republicans In Congress durlug Hie rebel?
lion and afterward", by btln/lng unau'lmnz-d
persons into Congress to Increase that majority,
has amt them headlong upou their career; amt
they have been and are grasping at every power
which was placed by our ancestors In the bands
of the President and the courts.' Our ratlters de?
fined arid divided the powers of the government,
to prevent au power being grasped and concen?
trated In the hands of uuy one or the different
branches of government. I believe that the reck?
less legislation or which the Republican party
have been guilty are flagitious violations of the
constitution. Now, au election ls not, valid unless
lt ls superintended by the bayonets of the regular
army. Oar army moves wherever there ls an
election. They no longer make war upon the
camps of the enemies or the government, hut
they make war upon thc political opponents or the
;ulministration, sud charge upon tue ballot-boxes
ind the polls.
Mr. President, 1 was perfectly well aware that
this practice, although it commenced at the South, ,
would not end there. The party In power com?
menced using thc bayonet to set up the carpet
jaggers in the Southern States, In thc recon?
structed States. Although those States were at
peace, and desired peace more than any other
partorour country, still they were not allowed
io hold an election without the presence of thc
umy. I kuew very well ?ut when the Repuoll
:an party had aecustomedthe peop'e of this coan
ry to hold elections uuder tho superintendence
JI military officers and armed troops lt would not
?ic a great while beiore the "political necessity "
ff the party would extend that. practice into the
Northern States; and from having originated m
[he South, in thubo States which liad Aieen In re?
bellion, it has recently gone imo*the States
.viilch furnished the most powerful aid and the
largest number of men to overthrow the re?
Mr. Morton. I ask Mid senator whether he re?
gards the fifteenth amendment as having been
idupted, and as . ow being a part ol the iuuda.
mental law of the land ?
Mr. Blair. I should think the gentleman ought
io have got. my opinion or the Ufteenth amend?
ment by this time. [Laughter.] 1 thluk that thc
rai ideation of my own State, for Instance, was In
legal form, although i lint ratiiicatiou was obtain?
ed by thu most Infamous perfidy. General Gra-it
canted the State of Missouri by twenty-five thou?
sand majority, and at tile mme election the negro
suffrage ameu anent to the constitution was voted
iluwa by thiity thousand majority, dud not one
hal of the peuple ur Missouri were allowed to vote.
The majority In the State of Missouri against that
mir ndiueni was knowu io the senators who fat
upon mis dQOfjMid the representatives who sur lu
the other house to be probably two-thirds of the
entire population or the Mate; and yet. without
M ny ?ort or consideration or regard tor the will of
that immense and overwhelming majority, the
Bcuaiors and representatives of thc State and the
members of the Legislature hurried to give effect
and vitality to Hus m teen h nmoudmeut.
The very gentlemen who claim that me ballot
Is necessary to protect the negro, who attach
such imnienselmporuincc to the ballot, when the
ballot has been exercised by their own constitu?
ents adverse to their wishes and party interests,
disregard it as if lt were no more than waste pa?
per. That shows the real opinion of those gen
tlemen in regard to the suffrage. How much pro?
tection did tuc suffrage afford the people of Mis
souri, Ohio, Kansas, Michigan, New York, Con?
necticut, and the other Northern Slates also, that
voted by immense luajoi liles against negro suf?
frage, against the peril ty and misrepresentation
ol their representatives In Congress and thc Stale
Legislatures which hos saddled them with the
fifteenth amendment, and which the senator
from Indiana well says became a "political ne?
cessity" to his party at this crisis ?
I have enumerated already other States, and I
do not wish tu call the roll again to show the
gentleman bum Indiana what my opinion or the
udoption ot the llf centh amendment ls. I do
not controvert the fart that even i he fraud which
was successiully practiced tn his own State has
been placed beyoud the reach ol any other cof
rectlon than the rebuke administered by the peo?
ple in the election of a Democratic Legislature, ,
whose resolutions are now under consideration,
placing Its perpetrators in the pillory of pubi c
opinion, and depriving us or the senator's ser?
vices as Minister to the Court of St James. This
act has probably reached a pulut wh-relt cannot
now, according to the rules of law, be Investi?
gated; but I wish to bo understood os saying that
t he people of this country have a right to hold
those who have perpetrated these infamies to re?
sponsibility, some have already received their
punishment lu Indiana, mid the sound of retribu?
tion has reached and startled others.
Mr. Morton. The senator will allow me to say
that lilsauswcr is not explicit fils argument is
that eenuin Stales Improperly ratified ii; but the
question was whether he regards the adoption of
tne amendment as complete, and die amendmeut
ai being now a part of the law or the laud ?
Mr. Bialr. 1 shall endeavor to be suillcietitly
explicit. I do regard lt as complete. I do regard
lt as a part of-the law of the land. I have never
held any other doctrine in regard to lt. On rae
ut ncr hand, 1 did not and du not now regard the
reconstruction measures passed by Congress as
any part of the la iv of tue land, and If 1 had been
in a position iff power where I was called to act
upou those so called laws, I should have acted out
my cou viet ions, let the consequences have been
what they might. I never did believe that they
were constituuoual. I think now, although th. se
laws have done their work in subverting the legal
governments or the Som hern States, yet there ls a
perfectly constitutional mode by which this could
ue repaired ir we had au Kxucuilve who regarded
Che duties imposed on him by his office, lt is
inly'necessary now to withdraw the army from
the South, where lt ts employed In driving voters
'rom the polls and carrying the elections against
i majority of ihe legal voters In those States, and
Che people will resume their rightful authority.
This would bc the way lu which I would carry
mt the "Brodhead letter," of which so much has
seen said. The suggestion it contains that "the
irmv should be compelled to undo Its usnrpa
.lons" and "disperse the c-irpet-bag govern?
ments," which has created such clamor, would

lent under the constitution, by the simple act or
fflthirawlug the soldiers or the United States
'rom thc South; the carpetbag governments
would then quietly disperse themselves with the
sooty they have already secured, and the people
ivould be at peace. Tims, by the application of
che Executive power, and In strict accordance
frith his swum duty, the restoration or the right
ff self-government might be promptly and com?
