for t&t'ereetion, for their , benefit,

wholo people. The Congress of the
United States has never heretofore
thought itself competent to estab-

Jish any laws beyond the limits ol
the District"' of 'Columbia, except
for the benefit of our disabled sol-
and sailors. It has never
schools for any class of our
own people, notevenforthcorphans
of those, who have fallen in defence
of the Union, but has left the care
of their education to the much more
competent control of the States, of
comnlunities,of private associations
and of individuals. It has never
deemed itself authorized to expend
public money for rent or purchase
of homes for the thousands, not to
say milions. of the white race, who
rre honestly toiling, from day to
day, for their subsistance.
A system for t lie support of in
dignant persons in the United States
was never contemplated by tlie
authors of the Constituton. Nor
can any good reason be advanced
why, as a permanent establishment
it shbuld be founded for ; one class
or color of our people more than for
another Tending the war many re-
fugees and .freedmen received sup
port from the 'Government, but it
was ' never ' intended they should
henceforth le fed, clothed; ediwat
ed and' sheltered 'by the' United
States. ' '
The idea on which the slaves were
assisted .to 'freedom was that on be
coming free they would be a sclf
fiiistnijniig population, and any leg-'
islafjoh that shall iniply ' they are
not expected' to'atta'ln a .self-sustaining,
condition, must have a'ten-1
den6y injuribus'alike to their char-
acter and their pibsperify. The !
appointment ol an agent for every f
county and parish will, create an
immense patronage, and the ex
pense of the numerous officers and
7t 1 1 ' 1 . 1 1 I. A 1
their clerks to be appointed by the
President, will be great in tho be
ginning, with a tendency steadily
to increase' ' '
The appropriations asked, by the
Freedmen's Bureau, as now estab
lished for the year 1S05, amount to
$11,745,000. ' It may be safoly es
timated that the cost to be incur
red under the pending bill, will re
quire double that amount, more
than the entire sum expended in
any one year under the administra
tion of the second Adams. If the
presence of agents in every parish
and county is to be considered as a
war measure, opposition, or even
resistance, might bo proposed so
that, to give effect to their jurisdic
tion, troops would have to be sta
tioned -within reach Of every one of
them and thus a larges tanding force
be rendered accessoiy. :
Large appropriations would there
fore be required to sustain and en
force niilitaryjurisdietion in every
country parish from the Potomac
to the Kio Grande. The condition
of our fiscal affairs is encouraging,
but in order to sustain the present
measure of public confidence, it is
necessary we practice not merely
customary economy, but, as far as
possible," severe retrenchment.
In addition to the objections al
ready stated, the fifth section of
the bill proposes to take away land
from its former owners without any
legal proceedings being first had ;
contrary to that provision of the
Constitution which declares that
no persons 6hall be deprived of life
liberty or property without due
process of. law.
It does not appear that the lands
to which this section refers may
not be owned by minors or persons
of unsound mind, or by those who
have been faithful to all their oblig
ations as citizens of the United
States. If any portion of the land
is held by such persons it is not
competent for any authority to de
prive them of it. If, on the other
hand, it be found that the property
is liable to confiscation, even then
it can not be appropriated to public
fiurposes until by due process of
aw it shall have been declared for
feited to the Government.
There 'are' Btill further objections
to the bill, on grounds seriously af
fecting the class of persons to
whom it is designed to briag relief
It will tend to keep the mind of the
. the freedman in a state of uncer
tain' expectation and restlessnessji
while to those among whom he !
lives, it will be a source of constant
and1 vague apprehension. Un
doubtedly the freedmen should be,
protected; but they should be pro
tected by the civil authorities, es
specially by the exercise of all the
constitutional powers of the United
States and of the States.
His condition is not so exposed
as may at first be imagined, lie is
in a portion of the country where
his labor,,can not well be spared.
Competition for his services from
planters, from those who are con
structing or repairing railroads, .or
from other States, will enable hira !
ded. " - . -
In truth, however, each State in
tliers duccd by its own wants and inter
founded , ests, will do what is necessary and
proper to retain within its borders
j all the labor that is needed for the
i development of its resources. The
to command almost his own terms,
lie also possesses a perfect right to
change his place of abode, and if,
therefore, ho does not find in one
community or State a mode of life
suited to ins uesircs, or proper re
muneration for his labor, he can
move to another, where labor is
t mora esteemed and better rewai
laws mat regulate supply and de
mand will maintain their force, and
the wages of laborers will be regu
lated (hereby. There is no danger
that the great demand for labor
will not operate in favor of the lab
orer ; neither is sufficient consider
ation given to the ability of the
freedmen to protect and take care
It is no more than justice to them
to believe that as they have receiv
their freedom with moderation and
forbearance, so they will distinguish
themselves by their industry; and
they feel and will soon show the
world that in a condition of freedom
they are self-sustaining and capa
ble ol selecting tlicir
ment and their own places of abode;
of insisting for themselves on a
proper remuneration and of estab
lishing and maintaining their own
asylums and schools.. It is earnest
ly hoped that instead of wasting
nway they will by their own efforts
establish for themseves a condition
of respect ability and prosperity.
It is certain they can attain to
that condition only through their
own merits and exertion. In this
connection the query .presents it
self, whether the system proposed
by the bill will not, when put into
complete operation ; practically,
transler the entire care, support
and control of four millions of em
ancipated slaves to agents, over
seers or taskmasters, who, appoint
ed at Washington, are to be locat
ed in every country and parish
throughout the United States, con
taining freedmen and refugees,
such a system would inevitably
tend to such a concentration of
power in the Excutive which would
enable him, if so disposed, to con
trol the action of a numerous class
and use them for tho attainment of
his own political ends. I can not
but add another grave objection to
this bill. . the Constitution imper
atively declares, in connection with
taxation, that each State shall have
at least one Representative, and
fixes the rule, for the number to
which in furture times, each State
shall be entitled.
It also provide Hint the Senate of tlie
United State shall he composed of two
Senators form each State without its pecu
liar lorcethat no State without iU consent
fliall he deprived of it suffrage in the Sen
ate. The original net was necessarily pass
ed in the absence of the States chiefly to be
affected because their people were then con
tumaciously engaged in tlie rebellion.
'ow tlie ease U changed, and sonic, nfleast
of the States are attending Congress bv the
loyal representative, soliciting the allow
ance of tlie constitutional right of represen
tation. At the time, however, of the con
sideration and passing of the bill, there was
no Senator or .Representative in Congress
from the eleven States which are to be
mainly nfl'cc.ted by its provisions.
The very fact that reports were nnd arc
made against tho good disposition of tlie
country, is an additional reason why' they
need mid should have representatives of
their own in Congress to explain their con
dition, especially as to accusations, and as
sist by their local knowledge in the per
fecting of measures immediately affecting
themselves, while the liberty of delibera
tion would then be free and Congress
would have full. power to decide according
to its judgment, There could then be no
objection urged that the States most inter
ested had not been permitted to be heard.
The opinion is firmly fixed in tho minds
of tlie American people that there could be
no taxation without representation. Great
burdens are now to be borne by all the
country, aud we may best demand that
they shall be born without a murmur when
they are voted by a majority of the repre
sentntives of all the people. Iwonltlnot
interfere with the unquestionable right of
Congress to judge, each House for itself, of
tlie elections, returns and qualifications of
its members; but that authority can not be
construed as including the right to put out,
In time of peace, any State from the repre
sentation to which it is entitled to by the
At present all the people of eleven States
arc excluded, those who were most faithful
during the war not less then others; the
State of Tennessee for instance, whose au
thorities engaged in the rebellion, was re
stored to all he Constitutional relations to
the Union by the patriotism and energy of
her injured and betrayed people before the
war was brought to a termination. They
had placed themselves la relations with the
General Government, had established a
State government of their own, and ad they
were not included in the emancipation pro
clamation they by their own act have
amended their Constitution so ns to abolish
Slavery within the limits of their State.
I know no reason why the State of Ten
nessee, for example, should not fully enjoy
her Constitutional relations to the United
States. The President of the United States
stands towards the country in a somewhat
different attitude from that of any member
Cougress, chosen from a single district or
State. The President is chosen by the peo
ple of all the States. Eleven States aro not
at this time represented in either branch ol
Congress, It would seem to be his duty on
all proper occasions to present their lust
elalnies to Congress. There always will be
difference of opinion in the community, and
individuals may be guilty of transgressions
of the law, but these do not constitute valid
objections against the right of a State to re
presentation. It would in no wise interfere with the
discretion of Congress with regard to the
qualifications of members, but I hold it my
duty to recommend to yon in the interests
of peace, and in interest of the Union, the

A Scared Old Sinner.
We endorse the following from

Stevfns is in a bad way. He said
yesterday: "There is an earthquake
around us," and he trembled. The
earthquake was the veto message
of the President. Thad. trembled,
for that message was the death-
knell of the radical party. He is
Jiot as philosophic as the chap old
Noah would not let into the ark
who went off declaring there would
not be much of rain after all.. Nor
is he as fearless as Lincoln, who de
clared he was not "scared a hooter"
when the rebels wero threatening
Washington. It is not the first
time he felt an earthquake and
trembled. He felt one at Harris
burg, when, to save his life, he
jumped out of one of tho windows
of the State-house and ran like a
scared deer for his hotel. Years
have produced no change in his
morals or principles. Jle is as un
scrupulous now as when he endea
vored to defraud a majority of the
people of Pennsylvania out of
their just ; representation in- the
Legislature. No wonder the old
sinner trembles.' We hope "Presi
dent Johnson "will keep the ground
shaking under his feet. His dry
bones be made to . rattle at short
intervals to .remind him that he is
not omnipotent." ' i
Who are Union ?
There are thirty-six States in the
Union ; consequently, there are
sevehty-.two Senators. One-half of
this number is thirty-six. Two
thirds is forty-nine. The radicals
have not to exceed thirty-one or
two members. : They have less
than half of the Senate, if all the
States were represented. Yet
they talk, of excluding, hy force
and violence,: eleven States, and
then setting up the pretext that
they are two-thirds of the remain
ing rump, and so passing all their
retaliatory , measures, . We Bhall
see if this game of exclusion and
violence can succeed.
