Another Speech from President John?
A delegation from Montana Terri?
tory waited upop., and made an ad?
dress to, the Presi3ent on Wednesday
morning, and received a reply in the
following langnage, .which has the
ring of the true metal. Mr. Johnson
has evidently made np his mind to
adhere to his position that the South
is in the Union. He said:
GENTLEMEN : Tt is no ordinary plea?
sure for me to meet you hera on this
occasion, and to hear the sentiments
you have announced. To receive so
large and respectable a body of in?
telligent gentlemen from that remoto
region of the country is highly grati?
fying to me. In response, sir, (ad?
dressing Mr. Pinney,)to the eloquent
manner in which you have expressed
the sentiments and feelings of those
whom you represent on that occasion,
I might content myself with simply
returning my thanks for your kind
expressions; but you have made some
allusions, - to which, under the cir?
cumstances that surround us, I can?
not be indifferent. You have- alluded
to the great principles of our Go?
vernment having been enunciated by
me in a paper sent but a short time
sin^o to the Congress of the United
States. The declaration by nie of
these principles was not the result of
impulse. If was the result of a tho?
rough and calm consideration of
those great_ truths which He at tho
foundation ?f all free Governments.
Those who understand those truths
and have hud thom down as their
guide cannot fail to understand the
doctrines enunciated in that message.
It is not necessary to inquire whether
they emanated from this man or that
Irinciples, no matter
[point they look at
Vemselvcs ' in volun t a
?rceptibly it may bo,
(doming together in all
3S that may take place in
lem; while those who dis
ft Who repudiate them, and
nought, will be found
Und traveling in a di?
rection. For this reason
bo many now coining to
|[thjmt any previous concert
fiaent, but imperceptibly,
hey agree on these great
[, gentlemen, there is no ojie 1
mistake the groat cardinal
hs that arc laid down hi that
They comprehend and em?
ilie principles upon which this
Jament rests, and upon which,

I care not by what name tho
Administering the Government
be denominated -thc Union
Prty, the Republican party, the De?
mocratic p^l'ty, thc American party,
or what not-no party can administer
the Government successfully unless
it is administered upon the great
principle'' laid down, in tliat paper.
VQU would meet with about thc same
success in attempting to carry on the
Government upon any other princi?
ples than those which are found in
the Constitution, as yon would if you
should tako hold of a piece of ma?
chinery that had been constructed
and trained to run harmoniously in
on? direction, and attempt, by re?
verse action, to run it in tho opposite
I say, again, that no ono can mis?
take tho doctrines of that message.
It is very easy for peinons to mis?
represent it, and to make assertions
that this, that or the other has* taken
place, or will take place ; hut I think I
may be permitted to say to yent on this
I occasion that, taking all my antece?
dents, going back to my advent in
public life, and continuing down to
the present time, tho great cardinal
principles set forth in that paper have
boon my constant and unwavering
guido. After having gone so far, it
is too late for mc to turn and take a
different direction. They will bo my
guide from this time onward, and
those who.uuderstand them may know
where T shall always bc found when
principle is involved. Here let nie
say to you, in order to disabuse tho
public mind as far as it is possible
for an individual to do so, that my
public career is well nigh done. Tho
sand of my political glass has well
nigh run out.
If I were disposed to refer to my?
self, I might traee my career back to
the log cabin ; then an alderman and
a mayor in a village; then through
both branches of the State legisla?
ture; then for ten consecutive years
in the National House of Representa?
tives; then through the Gubernatorial
Chair to tho Senate of the United
States; then Provisional Governor,
with a slight participation in military
affairs; then Vice-President, and now
in thc position I occupy before voil.
And now, in this position, if I can be
instrumental in restoring the Go?
vernment of the United States; in
restoring to their true position in the
Union those States whose relations
to tho National Government have,
for a time, been interrupted by ono
of thc most gigantic rebellions that
ever occurred in tho world, so that
we can proclaim once more that we
arc a united people, I shaW feel that
tho measure of my ambition has been
filled, and filled to oversowing. And
at that point, if there be am' who are
envious or jealous of my honor and
position, I shall be prepared to make
them as polite a bow as I know how,
and thank them to take thc place I
have occupied, for my mission will
have been fulfilled. Iir saying this,
in performance of my duty and in re?
sponse to thc encouragement you
have given nie, I feel that I am in a
condition not to be arrogant; not to
feel imperious or supcreillious. I
feel that I can afford to do right, and
so feeling, God being willing, I in?
tend to do right; ami as far as in mo
lies, I intend to administer this Go?
vernment upon tho principles that
lie at tho foundation of it.
I can inform all aspirants who arc
trying to form their combinations foi
the future, who want to make one or?
ganization for one purpose and an?
other, that they arc not in my way.
I am not a candidate for any position,
and hence, I repeat, I can afford to
do right; and, being in that condition,
I will do right. I make this announce?
ment for the purpose of letting al]
know that my work is to restore thc
Government, not to make combina?
tions with reference to any future can?
didacy for thc Presidency of thc
I have r 'ached thc topmost round
my race is run, so fm* as that is con
cerned. My object is to perform im
duty, and that"]' w?l-?12deavor to do.
Let us, then, all join in "this ?'real
work of restoration; and while wc
are. restoring and repairing the
bven?dov^fh?it have been made, let n.?
unite in the work of making new
States, and populating them with ?
people who aro worthy of thc Go
vernment which protects them. Anr
let those new State Governments b(
founded on principles in harmony
with thc general machinery devisee
by our fathers. So far as regard.'
any aid or assistance that can Ix
given hore in the progress and in +h<
consummation of this great work o
building up new States, as well as 01
tho restoration of ?ll the forme:
States, you will find nie a willing an<

Valuable and Extensive Water Power
in the City of Columbia for Sale.
Ordered by Ute Legislature of South Caro?
THE undersigned Commissioners, ap?
pointed by the General Assembly of
South Carolina, at its late session, will'
receive bids for the valuable W ATER
POWER known as the COLUMBIA CANAL,
until thc lirst day of April next.
Tho Canal is eight thousand six hundred
and fifty-four yards long, and thc average
fall for thc first three milos is fourteen feet,
commencing at ten feet at Upper street, in
Columbia, and attaining nineteen feet one
inch at Bridge street; tho remaining two
miles, from Bridge street to its mouth,
commences at nineteen feet ten inches, and
attains a fall of twenty-live feet. Fine
building sites exist between tho canal and
river, giving complete protection to build?
ings and machinery from freshets. Tho
State, through the undersigned, will con?
vey the canal and all its appurtenances, I
together with the right of way for sixty
feet on each side o? the centre o? the canal
to thc purchaser. Compensation to the
adjacent land owners for the right, of way,
to bc made by tho purchaser, on the sanio
just and equitable terms that the right of
way was conveyed to tho Greenville and
Columbia Railroad Company, hy Act of
15th December, 1845.
This power has been accurately surveyed
hy Prof. John LeConte, of tho South Caro?
lina University: bis report, together with
thc Act of tho General Assembly and this
advertisement, has been printed, and maj"
ho obtained by addressing Jas. G. Gibbes,
Esq., Mayor of Columbia.
Prof. LeConte estimates that by doubling
the original capacity of the canal, as re?
quired by the Act, that the power secured
to Bridge street will bo 355 horse-power,
thc average head being fourteen feet; und
from Bridge street to its mouth 532 horse?
power, with an average head of twenty-one
toct, and a current of one foot per second.
With a current of two feet per second, thc
powers would be 710 and 1,004 horse-power;
and if the machinery is not run at night,
thc power may be doubled by accumulat?
ing water in reservoirs.
"As tho supply of water," says Prof.
LeConte, "which may bo turned from tho
river into the canal at its head, is almost
unlimited, tho canal ?an be enlarged to an
extent commensurate with the demand for
water power. If desired, it may ho made
to supply water to tho extent of 5,000horsc
power or more. In fact, by very simplo
arrangements, one-third or one-half, or
even moro, of the whole water in Broad
River, might be turned into such an en?
larged canal." .
Thk wa" er power is literally within thc
city of Columbia. Tho?city is now supplied
by railroads penetrating nearly every Dis?
trict in thc State, furnishing tho produc?
tions of cotton, rice, wheat, beef and pro?
visions, with little expense at this important
The city of Columbia is supplied with gas
and good water, the climate is salubrious
and healthy, being above the miasmatic
region, and invites, for pleasant settlement
and society, merchants, artisans, mecha?
nics, manufacturers and persons x>f for?
tune and leisure.
The property will bc sold on the following
conditions, to wit: 1st. Thc purchaser
shall, within two years from the date of
conveyance, complete the widening and
deepening of said canal to at least twice its
origininal capacity. (Its original capacity
was fifteen feet wide at top, eight feet at
bottom and four feet in depth; to double
it according to Prof. LeConte's report, it
will require tho removal of 30,107 cubic
yards of earth, and 3,200 cubic yards of
stone to Bridge street, and from Bridge
reot to its mouth 22,170 cubic yards of
i:arth-ho stone to be removed.) That thc
same shall always be kept open for boating
purposes, free of charges, to where, it is
now used. (This will not interfere at all
with tho water power for driving machine?
ry, as boats only descend as far as thc lirst
lock, near Upper street.)
That the water shall not become stag
i??nT~-.and-trli:?t.it shall not housed forother I
than hydraulic purposes. _I
That one-third of tho sum hid shall he
paid within thirty days after notice of ac?
ceptance ol' bid; one-third at the expiration
of six months therefrom, and thc remain?
ing third at tho expiration of twelve
months. Titles delivered on payment of
lirst instalment, and that the title herein
proposed to bo conveyed shall revort to the
State, on default being made of any of the
foregoing conditions, including payment
of all the purchase money.
This water power with its location, in thc
judgment of tho Commissioners, is un?
equaled by aiy in the State of South Caro?
lina, and not surpassed by any in thc
Parties sending bids will please furnish
thc Commissioner:- with references as to
do ability promptly to make good the
