Reply to Them.
WASHINGTON, October 13.-Judge
Wardlaw, Colonel Dawkins and Mr.
Huger, delegates from the South Ca?
rolina Convention, had an interview
with the President %p-day, in which
they said that their State had accept?
ed in good faith the result of the
issue-such as had been made. That
the people felt that the President Jiad
.stood between" them and a harsh use
of the power of tho Government
that they felt entire confidence in his
purposes anil action, and * hoped in
return . to entitle themselves to his
confidence us to ?ir feelings and
The President ?epiied that he was
glad t^ hour it. Wherever such mu?
tual confidence existed, there could
be an open road to the restoration of
good feeling and a proper condition,
and that if the State of South Caro?
lina confided in him, he was surd, if I
he knew himself, that all he would
ask of them would be consistent ?with j
their honor and interest.
The delegation also presented the I
memorials for the pardon of Mr. Jet'- j
ferson Davis and others, but received !
no reply on the subject.
They were gratified with their in- j
?Kiportnii: ' from Washington-Our j
Convention'^ IJk'lc^iit ion's Inter?
view with the President.
WASHINGTON, October 13.-Judge
Wardlaw, Alfred Huger and Col. Daw?
kins, of South Carolina, this after- ?
noon, had an interview, by appoint?
ment, with President Johnson. They j
were accompanied by W. H. Trescott, j
who is here on business as Executive I
Agent of that State. The President, ;
after the customary preliminaries of ?
reception, invited them to be seated,
when at once the conversation com- j
menced by Judge Wardlaw informing
bim that they were a delegation from
tho State Convention of South Caro?
lina, sent hither to present certain
memorials of that body. These me?
morials had been carefully considered
in the Convention, and he believed
they told exactly the truth.
The President inquired the object
of the memdlBals. ' Judge Wardlaw
informed him that ono of them was
in behalf of Jefferson DaviB, A. H. j
Stephens, George A Trenholm and
Governor Magri?h. He said they
had understood that, by the kind in?
terference of the President, Messrs.,
Stephens and Trenholm had already
been released from close confinement
and permitted to return to their
homes. Ho would ask for Governor
Magrath either a pardon or that he
might be released on his parole.
They could assure the 'President that
. no harm would result from such an
act of clemency. The President re?
plied that all could not be pardoned
at once. The business must be pro?
ceeded with gradually, and an effort
made to execute the law. A discrimi?
nation was necessary as wo go along.
It was a too common expression, by
way of argument for clemcuoy, that
such a one had been pardoned, and
that he was just as bad as another who
had not. Judge Wardlaw replied
! that tho delegation presented no such
argument aa that. The President
said sometimes the peeubgr locality
had much to do with pardons. Like;
many other things in human affairs
ww cannot have a. fixed rule. Muco
depends on discretion and circum?
stances. If wc knew ourselves, we

Judge WardiAW remarked that they
had not come hither to express their
own hopes and desires, but as dele?
gates 'from the SouthvCarolina Con?
vention, to present the memorials of
that - body in a formal manner.
The President-We, wilt, gentle?
men, extend the facilities and civili?
ties which the questions require. We
would prefer to pardon twenty men
than refuse one. Judge Wardlaw
replied that they did not design td
say anything with reference to Go?
vernor Magrath, further than'that
they believed much good would re?
sult by the exercise of the Executive
clemency toward him.,
Colonel Dawkins said if we could
get Governor Magrath pardoned, it
"would be ? great relief to him at the
: Judge Wardlaw thanked the Presi?
dent for having released Messrs. Ste?
phens and Trenholm.
The President-We have,that far,
then,- anticipated your memorial.
Mr. Huger said Mr. Trenholm was
one of the most useful men, and ther<
was no doubt ho would exert all hi
power with a view to entire harmony
between the State and the Govern
ment. ' '
Tho President replied that .he un
derstood that was so, adding : H trea
son has been committed, there ough
to be some test to determine th?
power of the Government to-,punis!
the crime. He was fr?e to say that i
was not a mere contest between poli
tical parties or a question as to d
fido Government. Looking at th
Government as we do, and the law
violated in an attempt at the ova
throw of the natiou, there should b
a vindication of the Government an
the Constitution, even if tho pardor
ing power were exercised thereafto
If treason has been committed, i
ought to be determined by the highes
tribunal and the fact declared, even :
clemency should come afterward;
There was no malice or prejudice, i
wishing to curry out that duty. Judg
Wardlaw remarked that they . wei
well aware of that.
The President, resuming, saic
There may be some unkind feeling o
this subject, but it did not exist I
any great extent.
Judge Wardlaw said: Although n<
instructed by the Convention, he wi
induced to ask whether Mrs. Jeffersc
Davis, who HUS now confined to Geo
gia, could not cross into South Car
lina to see her friends. The Preside]
replied that ho had received lette
from Mrs. Davis, but they were n
very commendable. The tone of oi
of them, however, was considers!}
improved, but the others were not
the character becoming one ashil
Judge Wardlaw' interposed by sa
ing that sile was a woman of .stroi
The President replied : * 'Yes ; I sn
pose she is a woman of strong feeli
and temper, but there is no iutenti
to persecute her. There is aftmn
magnanimity and nobleness of spi
in submitting as in trying to put t
Government at defiance."
M r. Huger remarked that they h
a deop consciousness of the truth
all the President said. Tho Preside:
resuming, observed that the cbarac
of an individual may characteriz?
nation which is nothing but an a^g
gate of individuals, and when a p
pur spirit is manifested, all can
harmoniously. The man who goei
the stake is almost dignified by
bealing. It hits him above humi
tion. In these cases, gentlemen,
will du the best we can. While fib
1 was sympathy, there was a pul
i judgment which must be met.
t assure you, gentlemen, no djsposit
j exists for persecution or a thirst
Judge Wardlaw remarked that
tone of the newspapers was more
vorable. and different from whu
was. He then asked if the Presu
had seen a ?opy of the amended (.
stitution of South Carolina*,
course, ho said, we accept emane
tion. He felt perfectly satisfied
the person and property of the.n?
j will be protected, and he spoke of
j great difficulties of regulating li
j and of restraining vagrancy, etc.
'; The President thought that n
of the evils woi?d disappear if
inaugurated the right system,
laws protecting the colored ma
his person and property, and he
?ollect his debts. He knew he
was in tho South. The ques
when first presented, of putti

? man's testimony was to be takei
what it was worth by those, win

ought to understand that lil

means simply the right to work and
to enjoy the products of labor, and
that the laws will protect them. That
being done, and whe i we come, to the
period to feel that men must work or
starve, the country will be prepared
to receive a system applicable to both
white and black-prepared to receive
a system necessary to the case. A
short time back, jon could not en?
force tha vagrant law on the Vackj,
but you could on the white man. But
get the public mind right, and you
can treat both alike. Let us get the
general principles, and the details and
calculations will follow.
A conversation of somo length en- j
sued between the President and Judge
Wardlaw and Mr. Trescott as to the
legislation of the State necessary in
reference to the condition of .the
freednaen, and the scope and conse?
quences of the Circular JJo. 15, and
General Orders No. 145 of the Adju?
tant-General's Department, relative
to abandoned lands in South Carolina
and other Southern States. The ex?
amination of these subjects, it is un?
derstood, is to be continued at an?
The President said: We must be
practical and come up to surrounding
Judge Wardlaw, Colonel Dawkins
and Mr. Huger all expressed to the
President their conviction that their
State had accepted, in good faith, the
results of the issue which has been
made; that the people felt that the
President had stood between theni
and a harsh use of tho power of the
Government; that they felt entire
confidence in his purposes and ac?
tions, and hoped, in return, to entitle
themselves to Ins confidence as to
tL?;ir feelings and action a The Pre?
sident replied that ne Avas glad to
hear it; that wherever suah mutual
confidence existed, there would, he
thought, bo ah open road to the resto?
ration of good feeling and'a prosper?
ous condition ; and - that if he knew
himself, and thought he did, he
would recommend nothing but what
would advance their, interests. So
far from pandering to or looking to
future elevatidh, he must be believed
When he said he had no eye, single,
to snell preferment. If. he continued,
I could be instrumental in restoring
the Gowernment to its former rela?
tions, and see the people once more
united and happy, 1 should feel that I
had more than filled the, measure ol
my ambition. If I could feel that I
had contributed to this in any degree
my heart would Le more than grati?
fied and my ambition fully.
Judge; Wardlaw-Every man in
South Carolina -would respond to that.
Mr. Huger-I am sure there is, on
their part, np want of faith. Th?*j
deserve your confidence, and I an
sure they will earn it.
The President expressed ' himsel
gratified with what had been said b"j
Mr. Dawkins remarked tba ni

presented by the chairman, of tin
I delegation represented the true senti
