The Views the President.
"Agate," tlio Washington correspondent
or tlio Cincinnati Vuicttc, professes to give
nn nccurato nnd reliable account or tlio Pres
ident's views and policy as cnuncintcd in
his interviews with members of Congress.
The President declares that ho considers
Congressman Ashley's bill treating the
South as conquered territories as virtually
bill for tho dissolution of the Union, for
Vrhioh ho had risked his life and fortune.
Ho thought tho Union party should we Icon e
tho South back with open arms. According
to "Agate," the President continued his
talk, as follows:
"In fact theso States wore entitled to bo
Teiircscnlod in Congress all through the re
bellion. Indeed there was greater reason
Tor their being then represented than there
was at any other, times. Congress had re
poaledly dealt with them as States (luring
the rebellion. Members from Virginia, for
oxampje, Were admitted. Direct taxes were
apportioned amoiif; them just as among oth
er States. Tho ninth section of the act of
the 7th of June, lSO in its latter clauses
rccocnizcd the same principles.
"Tho rebel States arc, therefore, now in
the Union. Indeed tlicir-govcrnmcnts nro
more republican, more democratic, hiovo in"
harmony with the spirit of our institution'',
than thev ever were before. If Congress
would only look out thero now it would see
legislators, Governors, State officers of all
grades, members of Congress, all elected
by the people; courts in sossioiij taxes being
ing collected, mails being carried. Surely
these make States in tho Union, if they
wore ever in it."
The President expressed himself as op-
po;cd to their numerous constitutional
amendments that arc ponding before Con
gross, ascalculatod to impair the nnutity of
that instrument. Upon this point the
"As to any proportions for making the
payment ot the rebel dent unconstitutional,
lie considered them unnecessary, and doubl
ed their propriety. The Southern people
were in no danger of ever wanting to pnj
those debts. The objections in the South
to their payment would every year crow
stronger and stronger, llow would it look
to provide by constitutional amendment
that the United States debt should not be
tcpudiatcd: Yet this would bo no moic im
proper than the other. Furthermore, there
was gross inconsistency in tlio proposed
mode securing tho constitutional nniend
mendmcnts. They were to bo proposed by
a Congress from which tho South was ox
eluded. Thou tho rebel States, that were
unfit to bo represented in Congress, wen;
to bo cousidorcd lit to ratify a constitutional
amendment. If they were expected as
States to act upon the question of ratifying
them, they should be permitted, through
their representatives in Congress, to act,
also, in proposing thorn. In effect, ho did
not think it light to demand tho adoption
of any constitutional amendment as a condi
tion of admitting Southern members to
Congress, because those States were in now
and entitled to all tho lights of Status."
These are sound views, and if the Prcsi
dent will only carry them into effect, (as he
has the power to do, if he is so disposed,)
his Administration will bo a success and a
blessing to tlio country.
