The President's Speech.
The speech of President Johnson
has elicited an editorial from the New
York Evening Post, under the caption
of '*Tvfo Views," which we think,
considering the Post's position, is en?
titled to reproduction. Ii contrasts
the tone of the President's remarks
with those of Mr. Stevens as follows:
Mr. Stevens does not trust the
Southern men, and believes we are
not safe unless we exercise all the
rights and privileges of conquerors,
by despoiling those we have conquer?
ed. President Johnson, on the other
hand, believes that kindness may be
even more effective than violence, and
that we are strong enough to accept
the professions of the Southern men,
and trust them to reconstruct their
local governments under the Union.
Mr. Stevens is for confiscation of
Southern estates; the disfranchise?
ment of Southern men; the total
suppression of the .class which has no
doubt been the leading class in the
rebellion-the former slaveholders
namely. The President, on the
other hand, addressing a number of
persons of that very class, told them
that he would trust their professions
of conversion; then- assurances that
they had seen*the error of their ways;
that he would help them and the
Southern people ia general to re-es?
tablish law, order, society, industry,
all under the Constitution.
The President's idea of reconstruc?
tion, or re-organization, as he prefers,
we believe, to call it, seems to us
those of a statesman ready to work
with the means placed in his hands,
wise enough to see that his place is
to oil the machinery of Government
to prevent friction, and thus to get the
ponderous and important engine to
move with even more of its former
smoothness. Mr. Stevens cares no?
thing for friction; he behoves in what
seamen call "main strength."
After some other remarks bearing
npon the same subject, the Post thus
proceeds to define the country's posi?
We aro in the condition of a man
and wife who have had a quarrel, to
whom a divorce bas been refused,
who cannot live apart. The President
says: True, we quarrelled, but let us
now act sensibly; let us join hands in
friendship; we have destroyed that
which bred discord between us; we
have reason to hope for many peace?
ful and prosperous years; let us for?
give offences, and try if by mutual
and joint efforts we cannot do better
and liv? more happily than ever be?
Recurring to Mr. Stevens' argu?
ment, the Post says:
Now, if we were not going to live
with this partner again, if our inter?
ests w< re not identical, if her health
and beauty and prosperity were not
amongst our mo?t vital interests, Mr.
Stevens might be right. Or again, if
she were not helpless, and loadly ask?
ing fo*T kind treatment, but on the
contrary mulish, -perverse, obstinate,
determined to make further trouble,
then it might be prudent in us to use
certain precautionary measures, espe?
cially if we had a doubt of our own
strength and of her weakness. Bul
this is not the case ; the leading men
of the Southern States, with a verj
few exceptions, promise to be good
citizens ; they accept frankly, and,
as they assure the- authorities mosi
solemnly, in good faith, the situation
many of the most eminent of them
have already committed themselves
publicly to use all their influence and
energy and authority toward thc es?
tablishment and maintenance of free?
dom and equal rights in their States.
Others, liku General Lee and General
Johnston, who have not made any
such promises, yet have quietly en?
tered upon useful industries, with the
open declaration that while they do
not like the issues of the war, yet they
mean here after, while they stay in the
country, to be law-abiding citizens.
Now, in this state of affairs we think
it the part of wisdom in us, the strong?
er side, to eschew all mere measures
of revenge. We are conquerors by
arms, but we can afford to be con?
querors also by kindness. Southern
men profess publicly their readiness
to do right-how can we spurn these
professions ? Even if we do not alto?
gether believe in them ; even if we
believe that faults of temper and
wrong theories of social life may so
far embarrass them that they will not?
?t onee come up altogether to our
hopes and expectations-can we not
do more with them by trusting them,
by throwing the responsibility upon
them, by holding them to their pro?
mises, than by embittering them ?
Speaking as himself a Southern man,
the President said :
"The issue has been made and de?
cided; then, as wise men-as men who
see right and are determined to follow
it, as fathers and brothers, and as
. men who love their country in this
hom* of trial and suffering-why can?
not we come up and help to settle
the questions of the hour and adjust
them according to the principles of ]
honor and of justice ? The institu- I
tion of slavery is gone. The former
status of the negro had to be changed,
and we, as wisc men, must recognize
so patent a fact and adapt ourselves
to circumstances as they surround us.
[Voices-we are willing to do so. Yes,
sir, we are willing to do so.] I be?
lieve you are. I believe 'when your
faith is pledged, when your consent
has been given, as I have already said,
I believe it will be maintained in good
faith, and every pledge or promise
fully carried out. [Cries-It will.]
All I ask or desire of the South or
North, the East or the West, is to be
sustained in carrying out the princi?
ples of the Constitution." ?
Are not these words of true wis?
dom ? And wherever we find them
cordially responded to in the South,
is it not wise to give a trial to those
who profess their readiness to be good
citizens ? Some day or other they
will have to be trusted. Is not now a
better time than any other likely to
come in the future ? Is it for the
public benefit that we should, under
Mr. Stevens' ideas, maintain a state
of war in the South ? Will not re?
turning prosperity, renewed inter?
course, the voice of a free press, have
their influence, all potent for good ?
And if South Carolina does not be?
come Massachusetts in six*months,
need we be discouraged ? Our work
down there is not that of months, but
of years; it is not to be completed by
armies, but by the spread of know?
ledge, the dissemination of correct
principles; by convincing the people
that justice and liberty are profitable.
THE POLISH REBELLION.-The more
fully the particulars of the late Polish
rebellion come to bight, the greater
and graver appears the struggle of
that unfortunate race. In making up
accounts, tho Russian Government
have now discovered the significant
fact that the number of people who
left Warsaw to join the insurrection?
ary bands in 1862 and 1863 amounted,
to no less than 8,128, out of a popu?
lation of 216,000. Of these, eighty
three were children, between ten and
fourteen years old, 1,902 were be
ween twenty and twenty-five, 1,463
