SpeecU of Senator X. J. jHo&?r?con.
We have published extracts from the
speech of Senator Sawyer on the remov?
al of political disabilities, delivered in
the Senate' on the 21st inst. Senator
Robertson followed Mr. Sawyer in the
debate, and the subjoined extracts aro
taken from the report of bis speech :
The Senate having under conaidera
tion the following amendment proposed
by Mr. Sawyer:
And "the bil) to relieve all persons en?
gaged in the rebellion fi om the disabili?
ty imposed by the fourteenth amend?
ment to the Constitution, with certain
exceptions," Mr. Robertson said:
MR. PRESIDENT: Theamendmentoffer?
ed by my colleague is to include in the
resolution the bill introduced by me
originally, and now before tho Senate.
This bill proposes to relieve the disabili?
ties of nil persons involved in the rebel?
lion except three o hisses:
1st. All persons who being members of
the Congress of the United States with?
drew from their scats and aided the re?
2d. AU persons who being officers of
the army or navy of tho United Stater,
and being above the age of tve >ty-oi e
years, left said army or navy and aided
3d. All persons who being members of
State conventions which ndopted pre?
tended ordiuuuees of secession voted in
favor of tho adoption of such ordi?
Mr. President, the third section ef tho
fourteenth nmeudment of tho Constitu?
tion of the United States exoludes from
State or Federal office all persons who
participated in tho rebellion who bad
hold nuy office, Stute >r Federal, which
required tho taking of nu oath to sup?
port the Constitution of tho United
States. The fourteenth amendment was
originated by Congress in June, 18G6,
shortly after the termination of tho war
growing out of secession, and before the
rebellion was proclaimed by tho authori?
ties of the United States to have termi?
nated, which termination was not pro?
nounced to have oocurred until the 20th
day of August, 1866.
Tho fourteenth amondment repre?
sented the then existing state of public
sentiment of the people of the United
States. The passions agituted by the
great struggle through which tho country
bad passed had not then subsided.
Even nt that early day, it was deemed
proper to graut amnesty to the greater
part of the persons engaged in the rebel?
lion. This was done by tho fourteenth
amendment, in reserving from amnesty
a certain class-those who had takeu nn
oath of office to support the Constitution
of the Uuited States. All others engaged
iu the rebellion were, by necessary im?
plication, fully pardoned. We may say,
then, in general terms, that the vast
majority of persons engaged in tho rebel?
lion wero pardoned by tho fourteenth
amendment. The fourteenth amend?
ment was, then, au act of grace and par?
don. It is true, it excluded from this
grace anil pardon a certain class of per?
sons; but, eveu as to them, it did not
make their exclusion from pardon per?
petual. On the contrary, it gave Con?
gress power to relieve all disabilities.
The fourteenth amendment teaches the
lesson of forgiveness, for it pardoned far
more persons than it proscribed, and the
proscription of soma was perpetual, but
subject to the discretion of Congress.
When the fourteenth ameudmeut was
originated, it was not deemed prudent to
pardon all persons engaged in the rebel?
lion. It was necessary to draw the lino
of distiuction between those who were
not pardoned. lu drawing this line, it
bad to bo done in a general way. It was
done by excluding from pardon all who
participated in tho rebellion and bad
taken tho oath to support tho Constitu?
tion. This, perhaps, was as good a line
of geueral division, between those to be
pardoued and thoso who were not to bo
pardoned, as could have been devised.
But it was merely au arbitrary line; and
many persons who deserved purdon were
excluded from pardon by it, and many
persons more to blame than some of
thoso excluded from purdon were par?
Tho fourteenth amendment did not, ns
regards individuals, dispenso exact jus?
tice; indeed, it did not profess to do se.
Many were embraced iii the disfranchise?
ment announced by tho fourteenth
amendment who woro us little deserving
of proscription as could well bo ima?
gined, uud many of tho more intense
secessionists were pardoned by the
fourteenth amendment. We cannot con?
sider tho fourteenth amendment, then,
as ti rule of perfect justice. Many of
the most iuuoccut were punished by it,
many of tho most guilty absolved.
Thurn is nothing, then, iu thu justice
dispensed by the fourteenth nmeudment
to muke us cherish it in an especial man?
If I consult my own judgment, I
would say puss au act of universal am?
nesty with u few individual exceptions;
hut ns I wish to attain a practical result, j
I have, in deference to what. I tako to be
thu opinion of Congress, excluded from
my proposed bill of amnesty ull persons
who left Congress, tho army or navy of
tho Uuited States, and all persons who
were members of State conventions that
adopted pretended ordinances of seces?
sion, and voted for such ordinances and
afterward joined tho rebellion. With
tho exception of these three classes I
propose universal amnesty. My reasons
for thus giving amnesty uro briefly these:
I wish to restore peace, good feeling anti
harmony to the ena u try. I have always
been devotedly attached to the Union of
tho Slates. I have always seen iii the
flag of my country tho symbol of hope'
to mankind. Upon tho success of our
U-overument depends, ns I believe, the
futo of liberty. *****
I know that the fourteenth ameudmeut j
is considered by many at the South as a |
grievance. I propose to remove this
grievance, at least, in part. Tho ten?
dency of this removal cannot but bo
good; it is a step toward harmony aud
conciliation. Tho experience of Eng- I
land in regard to Ireland admonishes
me of the importance of removing all
grievances. The union between Eng?
land and Ireland has never been cordial;
the Irish people have always supposed
they were hardly dealt with by the
British Government, and after long ex?
perience of the inefficiency of a repres?
sive policy in regard to Ireland, the
Britisn Government bas become satisfied
of the necessity of a policy of concilia?
tion. My idea is jo profit by the expe?
rience of Great mumu in regard to
Ireland, and enter upon a policy of con?
ciliation and harmony nt once. Let us
exhaust conciliation. If that fails, then
other means will remain to us; but let as
exhanst conciliation first. * * * *
While amnesty will tend to produce a
good feeling South in regard to the
Federal Government, it will also tend to
ncoomplish another most desirable re?
sult-it will tend to greater harmony
between the two races Sooth. No one
can be more kindly disposed to our
colored population than I am; no ono
more ardently desires tbeir prosperity,
their happiness and advancement. I nm
deoply impressed with the conviction
th jit their happiness largely depends
upon tho harmony between them and the
whites among whom they live. As n
sincero friend to our colored citizens, I
earnestly desire to seo eutiro harmony
between the two races.
Ono strong reason, then, with me for
favoring amnesty is th it 1 think it will
have a good effect on tho relations of tho
two races South. By the operation of
tho fourteenth amendment,n portion of
tho whites South (one of the most intel?
ligent portions,) is disqualified to hold
office, while the colored citizens aro all
free from such disqualification. Thus,
practically, at tho South, tho colored
fioople appear to be more favored by our
ogislntion tbau tho whites. Thin, of
course, produces dissntisfactiou, and
tends to tho alienation of the two races!
AB a frieud to tho colored raco, then, I
wish to seo the whites allowed every
right tho colored race enjoys, and this
cannot bo without amnesty. I know
this amnesty will bo hailed with pleasure
by the colored race. Thoir generous
aud forgiving natures causo them to wish
to seo tho whites ns freo as themselves;
und, ns I have boon an earnest advocate
for tho colored mau to enjoy every right
before tho law, so I equally desire, now,
to soo tho whites ?nfranohised. * * * *
lu conclusion, Mr. President, I am
Natisfied that tho passage of this amnesty
bill will do moro to restore pcaco and
harmony in tho South tbau any coercive
law that cnn bo passed at this hessian of
Congress. Therefore, I most respect?
fully and earnestly recommend the pas?
sage of this bill.
Ls TIII; WAH ENDED?-A Radical editor
in Mississippi propounded the following
query to W. H. McArdlo, the well known
editor of the Vicksburg Herald:
"Has tho war ended? If so, why do
yon still thirst for further bloodshed?"
To this, McArdle replies:
"We aro by no means sure that 'tho
war' lats 'ended!' When tho Confed?rate
armies surrendered tbeir arms, in 1865,
we thought old 'grim-visaged' had
'smoothed his wrinkled front,' arid that
whito-wiuged peuce would smile over all
tho lino. When thososhoiikler-atrapped
ruffians, Ord, Popo, Sheridan, Meade
und Sickles, ruled tho South with the
bayonet, and arrested and tried peaceful
citizens by military commission, we
thought it just possible that we were
mistaken-that, perhaps, tho enemy was
still firing along a portion of tho Hue.
When that wretched caitiff, General
Ord, imprisoned the writer, in a cell six
feet by four, because ho dcuonuced bim
for what ho icos and is-a 'brutal and
cowardly ruffiau'-wo felt quite sure that
'the war* was not 'ended.' We did not
then, nor do wo now, 'thirst for further
bloodshed,' but if tho thieves in the
Legislature insist ^u robbing tho people
of thirty million of dollars to pay the
repudiated bonds, wo stand pledged to
help hang the robbers."
A DETERMINED VOTER.-A New Hamp?
shire paper tells of a gallant Democrat
of that Stuto who deserves to bo immor?
talized. It says: "On tho evening bc
foro election, Mr. John W. Lyon, cf
Bath, a brakeman on the Montreal load,
expecting to turn back at Well's River,
found himself compelled to go on to
Plymouth, where bo arrived at 8o'clock.
Hud ho accepted the situation ho would
have been uuublo to get borne in time to
vote; bHt ho didn't. Without stopping
for a cold bite even, Mr. L. got a bund
car and, by clear muscio, propelled him?
self over forty-eight miles of track, part
of it on an ascending grado of eighty
five feet to tho mile, till he reached homo
at 1.30 o'clock. Ou learning tho facts,
bis friends turned out of their beds and
guvo him a hot oyster supper, and thut
day ono moro ballot for James A. Weston
was the rosult of the indomitable energy,
muscio and determination exhibited by
Mr. Lyon. It is this spirit that has
carried our party through years of de?
feat to final victory.
Parson Cain, ono of tho most influen?
tial leaders of bia raco in tho State, joins
in tho desertion of tho colored auxilia?
ries from the Radical camp. "Intelli?
gence," ho doclures in the Missionary
Record, at Charleston, "will rulo tho
world. Curso and brand it ns you may,
there is a power in intellect and iutegrity
that nothing can overcome, and thc only
question is whether tho ignorant and
corrupt shull still have preferment, aDd
tho people quietly submit to bo ruled by
SUDDEN DEATH.-On Saturday lust, a
> olorcd man, by tho nama of Green Till?
man, belter known tis Green Lindsay,
was found on the roadside, about two
miles from the village, nud only a short
distance from his home, lying in n
speechless and helpless condition. That
night, he died. Green was a polilo und
well-disposed mun, and hud many friends,
both white and colored.
