Saturday Morning, joly 28, I&Q6.
Something to bc TUankfnl For.
Tho people of tho United States
have reason to he thankful this morn?
ing, as, before the close of tho day,
they will be temporarily relffcved
from ono of the greatest evils which
has ever befallen them as a nation
since tho-foundation of the-Govero
ment, to be found in. tho adjournment
of the radical 'Congress, which, for
months past, baa- bee* heaping np a
pile of such iniquitous legislation ns
has never disgraced tho annuls of,
any legislativo body, and from tho
incubus of which the country will be
a long time recovering.
It would bo a BUperflous work to
review, inl detail, the ^legislation of
this rump Congress, and our readers
would scarcelythank us for doing so,
as they have been kept pretty well
posted. In every branch of legisla?
tion they have not hesitated to violate
.tho Constitution they had sworn to
Support; they have overridden almost
every articlo of that instrument, and
have rejoiced] andjgloried in their
perfidy and shame, they have disre?
garded the admonitions and remon?
strances of the patriotic Chief Magis?
trate of the Union, and tho halls of
Congress daily rang and were' dis?
graced with tho most foul-mouthed
denunciations and abusejof that dis?
tinguished head of the Government;
they have destroyed the equality of
tho States of the Union by taxing the
people of eleven of _them, while de?
nying them representation; they
hove levied various taxes on the peo?
ple and wasted and squandered the
immense revenue derived therefrom
for their own political ends and party
hatred; they have defiantly set al
naught the opinions of the ablcs!
jurists and wisest fstatesmen of thc
country; they have trampled on thc
rights of the people ;n almost cverj
Act they have passed, and on this
the day of their adjournment, thej
leave their country groaning ant
bleeding from their unjust and ty?
rannical legislation, and in a worsi
condition than she was when sin
emerged from four years civil war.
Thesoitems only give a portion o
the heads of the reeord of infam;
which these men leave behind them
Were we to go into detail of th
amount of wrong and injustico in
flicted on the whole country, am
place it on permanent record, th
readers of the succeeding centur
would not believe that such a catn
logue of offences against the Consti
tution of their country, and agains
the laws of humanity, virtue an
honesty, could be the written recor
of the acts of professing Christi*
legislators in tho century just preced
ing theirs. They would look in vat
for.a precedent or parallel in an,
country, and would blush for the rc
creaney of their immediate ancestor
from the glorious principles of th
founders of the Government of 177?
The accusation we bring again!
these men is true to the letter; the
are revolutionists in tho worst seus
of that word, for they war again!

atrocious enactments, have sought t
est.ib!i?h a fearful despotism-a de

firmness and unswerving patriotisi
of one limn-Andrew Johnson, am
whatever of evil they have left Ul
done in the hideous chronicle of tho
legislation, is mainly attributable I
his indomitable and unflinching coi
rage set against their mad and cl
Whilst wo are thankful then, b
day, that these men have ceased the
nefarious labors, even for a sho
time, let us solemnly resolve, by u
means in our power, to sustain tl

efforts to restore the ancient lan.
marks of the Government of the f

Those are no idle word?, for tho j

We publish, this morniug, the
message of the President accompany-.
iug his signature to the joint resolu?
tion for the admission of Tennessee. "
The President is again master of the
position, and the radicals have been
caught iu their own trap. "While the
joint resolution was the vital, impor?
tant point, tho preamble was iuteuded
tb cunningly mid apparently obtain
the President's assent to the asser?
tions mndo therein. But they have
been completely foiled, and the
preamble has only given the Presi?
dent the opportunity of reiterating
his opinion, whioh he has twice be?
fore sent to Congress, ou the subjects
But, besides this, while, test hu
might appear to throw any obstacle
in the way of the admission of his
own State, he distinctly tells the fac?
tion which sent it to him, that the
joint resolution itself did not require
his signature, as each house o? Con?
gress was the judge of the qualifica?
tions of its" own members, thus ex?
posing the desigus of tho party.
Thus, while haying repudiated the
preamble, ho approved the resolu?
tion, making it incumbent upon them
to admit the Tennesseeans.
In this brief message, the Presi?
dent has once more, and very neatly,
showed up the chicanery of the radi?
cal party. As the Richmond Dispatch
says, it sounds ns if it came from un
entirely contented gentleman-one
who, in a contest, had gained a tri?
umph. No President ever prepared
dissertations upon themes such as
the radicals force upon him, in ix style
so clear and yet so well popularized
for the general reader. Ho shoots
the needle-gun-ho doesn't waste
powder-and tho sharp crack of his
weapon is terrible in itt; effect upon

ers, means, first, emancipation; next,

treasure than any nation ever shed

Thof olio wing message waa received
by the/House of Representatives, on
Wednesday, ftom?tbe President: -
To the House of Representatives: ? ~ . - '
Tiie following ^jnin* resolution
festering Tennessee ter her relations
to .theUnion." was ' last evening pre^
so ted for my apprttvn?: ? ??
Whereas, in the year 1861, the Go?
vernment of the State of Tennessee
was seized npon ?nd taken possession
o f by persons in hos tility to .the U ni ted
States, and tho inhabitants of said
State, in pursuance of an Act pf Con?
gress, were declared to be in a state
of insurrection against tho'Uuited
States; and whereas, tho said State
Government can only be restored to
its former political relations m the
Union hy the' consent of the law?
making power of the United Strtes;
'and whereas, the peeble of the said
State did, on the 22d day of Februa?
ry, 1865, by a large popular vote;
adopt and ratify a Constitution and
Government whereby slavory was
abolished, and the ordinances and
laws of secession, and debts contract
ed under tho sam?, were declared noll
and void; and whereas, a State Go
vern ment has been organized undei
said Constitution, which has ratifi?e
thc amendment to the Constitution o'
the United States abolishing slavery
and also tho amendment proposed bj
tho Thirty-ninth Congress, and bai
done other act? proclaiming sud de
uot?Dg loyalty; therefore, .
Bc it enacted by Ute Senate and Hons
of Repr?sentatives qf the United States
in. Congress assembled. That the St?et<
of Tennessee is hereby restored t<
lrer former practical relations to th
Union, and is again entitled to b
represented by Senators and Rep rc
sensitives in Congress.
The preamble simply consists o
statements-some of which are as
sumed-while tho resolution *5
merely a declaration of opinion. 1
comprises no legislation, nor does i
confer any power which is bi nd iii
npon the-respectivo Houses, tho Ex?
cutive or the States. It does not ac
mit to their scats in Congress th
Senators and Representatives froi
tho State of Tennessee; for, nortwitl
standing the passage of the rosoli
tion, each House, iu tlie exercise c
tho constitutional right to judge fe
itself of the elections, returns an
qualifications of its members, may, ?
its discretion, admit them, or cont
nne to exclude them. If a joint res?
lutiou of this character were neceas
ry and binding as a conditio
precedent to the admission of men
bera of Congress, it would happen, i
the event of a veto by tho Executiv
that Senators and Representativi
could only be admitted to the hal
of legislation by a two-thirds vote i
each of the two Houses.
Among other reasons recited in tl
preamble for the declarations co
tained in tho resolution, is the rati:
cation, by tho State Government
Tennessee, of "the amendment to tl
Constitution of the United Stat
abolishing slavery, and also tl
amendment proposed by the tliirt
ninth Congress." If, as is also cl
dared in thc preamble, "said Sta
Government eau only be restored
its former political relations in tl
Union by the consent of tho la
making power of the United States
it wonld really seem to follow th
the joint resolution which, at this la
day, has received the sanction
Congress, should have been passe
approved and placed on the sffatu
books before any amendment to t
Constitution was submitted to t
legislature of Tennessee for ratifie
tion. Otherwise, tho inference
plainly deducible, that while, in t
opinion of Congress, the people o
State may be too strongly disloyal
bo entitled to representation, th
may, nevertheless, during the suspe
sion of their "former practical re
; tions to the Union," have au eqna
potent voice with other and lo;
States in propositions to amend t
Constitution, upon which so ess?
tially depend tho ability, prosper
und very existence of tho nation.
A brief reference to my ann
message of the"4th of December hi
will show the steps taken by the 1
i ecutive for tho restoration tc> th
j constitutional relations to tho Um
of the States that had been affected
therebellion. Upon the cessation of
tive hostilities, Provisional Govern
were appointed, conventions call
j and Governoi-s elected by tho peoj
Legislatures assembled, and Senat
and Representatives chosen to
Congress of the United States,
the same tiara, the courts of
United States were re-opened,
blockade romoved, the custom-hou
re-established and postal relations
The amendment to tho Consti
tion abolishing slavery forever wit
the limits of the country was i
submitted to the States, and tl
were thus invited to, and did part
pate in ita ratification--thus exor
iug the highest functions pertain
to a State. In addition, nearly al
these States, through their Conv
I tions and Legislatures, had adop
I and ratified Constitutions "of .
vern ment whereby slavery was a
fished, and nil orclinances and law
secession and debts contracted un
the same were declared void."
So fur, then, the political existe
of their States and their relation;
the Federal Government liad b
fully and completely recognized
acknowledged by the Executive
partment of tho Government, ;
the completion of the work of
adorations ; whick liad progressed'so
fa.vc?*bly, was submitted to Congress,
Upon Junien devolved all qtutotions
pertaining to the admission tb their
seats of tho Senators and Representa?
tives chosen from tho States whose
people had engaged in the rebellion.
' All these steps had been taken,
when, on the 1th day of Deeember,
1SC5, tlie 39th Congres?.- assembled.
Nearly eight months have elapsed
since that time, and no other plan of
restoration having been, proposed by
Congress for Cite measures instituted
by-the Use eu ti ve, it is now -declared? .
in the joint resolution submitted for
my appr?val,- '^h?Vthe State of Ten
-nesse? is hereby restored to her for?
mer proper practical relations to the
Union, and is again entitled to be
represented by Senators and Repre?
sentatives in Congress.** : Thus, after'
the lapse of nearly eight mouths,
Congress proposes to pave the way to
the admission and to tho representa?
tion of ?ne of the eleven States whose
people arrayed themselves in? rebel- ,
lion against tue constituted authority
of the Federal Government. J I
Earnestly desiring to remove every
cause of further delay, whether real
or ininginary, on the parteo! Con?
gress, to the admission to ?eats of
kryal Senators and Representatives
from the State of Tennessee, I have,
notwithstanding tho* anomalous cha?
racter of the proceedings, affixed ray
signature to the resolution. My ap?
proval, however, ls not to be con?
strued as an aojmowledgriwnt of the
fight of Congress" to pass laws pre
liruinary to the admission of duly
qualified representatives from any of
'tho States. Neither is it to bo eon
si der ed as committing me to all the
statements made in the preamble
some of whieb. nre, in my opiuion, .
witlfont foundation in faet, especially
the assertion that th? State* of Ten?
nessets has ratified tho amendment to*
tho Constitution of the United States I
proposed by the 89th Congress, No
?official notice, of sn oh ratification has
been received by tho Executive, of
_fiMd in the 'Depart ment of State; on
the contrary,, unofficial information"
from most reliable- sources induces
the belief that the amendment has
not yet been constitutionally sanc?
tioned by the Legislature of leirnes
see. The right of each house, under
the Constitution, to judge bf the
elections, returns and qualifications
of its own members, is undoubted,
and my approval or disapproval td"
tho resolution could not, in the slight?
est degree, increase or diminish the
authority in this respect conferrer!
upon tho two branches of Congress.
In conclusion, 1 cannot too ear?
nestly repeat-my recommendation for
the admission of Tennessee, and all
other States, to a fair and equal par?
ticipation in national legislation,
when they present themselves in the
persons of loyal Senators uud Repre?
sentatives, who can comply with all
the requirements of the Constitution
and the laws. By this means, har?
mony and r?conciliation will be effect?
ed, the practical relations of all the
States t? the Federal Government re?
established, and the work of restora?
tion, inaugurated upon the termina?
tion of the war, successfully com?
pleted. ANDREW JOHNSON.
WASHINGTON, D. C., July 21, 1866.
The Nashville Union and American,
in publishing Forney's telegram to
Brownlow, announcing the admission
of Tennesseo members, says:
ft has already been decided, by the
only judicial authority which has
passed it iu review, that the members
who pretend to have adopted this
amendment acted upon that and all
other subjects, except, adjournment
from day to day, beyond their powers
.iud without authority of law.
Tho Governor's telegrams to "Wash?
ington, therefore, conveyed false in?
formation to his radical friends, and
in admitting the Tennessee delega?
tion, Congress has done nothing
mor? than it ought to do in the ease
of the tuer Southern States that
have- held out no pretense of ratifi?
Wo are forced, therefore, to con?
clude and insist- .
1. That there has been no ratifica?
tion of the proposed amendment of
the Constitution of the United States
by either the Legislature or people of
2. That Congress has admitted the
I delegation elect without conditions of
auy sort, and it is equally its duty to
I admit the representatives of all the
j other excluded States, without fur
? titer delay.
WIHEWOKDS.-Hon. Edward Bates,
of Missouri, who was thc Attorney
General under Mr. Lincoln-an able
I constitutional lawyer, and a pure,
' upright and conservative man hos
? recently written a letter to the editors

j closes with the following paragraph:
"No man can be truly loyal who
willingly breaks the Constitution,
(which is our only sovereign.) We
! can gain nothing by strained and
j ambitious interpretations of the fun?
damental law. And I am fully per?
suaded if President Johnson will,
with energy and courage, preserve,
protect and defend the Constitution,
and faithfully execute the laws, (to
do which I doubt not his gotnl inten?

him over a reckless faction which
bold]^ usurps the Government, and

In many parts of our 'District

for lock of rain, some sections having
been without a "season" for five or
six' weeks. It give-s us pleasure,
however, to learn that there are a few
farmers who have a smiling prospect
before them, and in all probability
will mi.?Jo an average crop. But,
"like angels visits, they are few and

complains of the drjught, and the

unsatisfactory. Another rain on
Tuesday perhaps effected more gene?
ral good. We hope so.

The pleasant weather of the past
few days has had a slight effect in
preventing any further increase of
the cholera in the city. The number
of confirmed cases, Sunday, was
fourteen; one of them was a man
who was discovered dead on Cham?
bers street. The epidemic is increas?
ing on Governor's Island. There
were two deaths Sunday, and more
than tho usual number of cases. It
appeal's that, of twenty-four cases on
the island, all were boys from sixteen
to twenty. On Hart Island, the cho?
lera is severe, the average being from
twenty to thirty daily, with a propor?
tion of from ten to fifteen per cent,
of deaths. Diarrhoea prevails among
the officers and men to some extent,
and the greatest care is required to
prevent it from merging into the
cholera. - New York News, 24///.
