To the People both North and South.
Vi'e see that certain people in the South
! are loud in their praise of President Jotin
'., son, while certain people of the North are
strongly denouncing him. To both, wc say,
be cautious, and do not make a mistake.
I You of the South, must not anticipate or
ask too much, and you must not come to
false conclusions. You, of the North, should
not condemn, abuse and slander the Presi
dent without some just cause. We now ask,
is it not possible that both Southern friends
and .Northern traducers may. ere long, dis
cover that they have had but little discrimi
nation, and have, of their own accord, placed
themselves in rather an unpleasant predica
ment, and if they should, we would suggest
the propriety of not linding fault.
Now, up to this hour, lie has pursued a
straight forward consistent course he neith
er turns to the right or left, and it may be
that certain parties, both in the North and
the South, have come to some wrong conclu
sions. Our faith in the President is strong
and abiding, and we say to you, be faithful
to him, and wait patiently for the result, and
all will be weil. Let us say remember this,
that because the President has vetoed the
Freednien's Bureau bill, the Civil rights bill,
there is nothing in these facts from which
vou can reasonably draw any conclusion that
lie will in any way, depart from the require
ments he has made upon the Southern States,
either in the formation of their State gov
ernments, or the qualifications of their Gov
ernors ami State officers, or in the qualifica
tions of the members elected to represent
them in Congress, His policy has been fixed
ou these points, and tliere is not even a
shadow of doubt but what he will most te
naciously adhere to his course. IJe has, on
all occasions, frankly avowed this, and we
do not know of any act of his that could
possibly lead any one to suppose that either
of the States can send any oilier than loyal
men to Congress with any hope of their
gaining admittance. To the people of the
South, then, we say, if you would sustain
the President and aid him in his reconstruc
tion policy, there is but one way for you to
do it. Elect good Union men as your Gov
ernors and Representatives. This is what
he asks of you and what he requires. You
can do it if you choose, and it certainly will
be wise to do so. In this way you can give
strength to Ins measures and render liim
that aid and assistance he requires at your
bauds. By pursuing an opposite course, you
will in a ufeusure paralyze bis efforts, and re
tard the process of reconstruction, anil we
tell you, in all fairness and candor, that the
citizens of States lately in rebellion ought to
be willing that the sound loyal men of your
own people shall fiil your offices of trust,
and act with the President in gradually re
storing the country to amicable relations.
tVisdom certainly dictates this course, even
a-s a matter of policy, if for no other reason.
And, paramount to this, it is the only true
course to bring about that condition of
things that the present situation demands
every act of the President admits of no oth
er construction. There is a Radical element
in Congress, that on Constitutional grounds,
the President has been compelled to act
against, as much, if not more, i.ir the North
ern States than for the Southern States, f lis
condemnation, of the measures taut the Rad
ical element endeavored to iaslen upon the
country, cannot, and should not be taken as
any evidence that the President wili pursue
anv other course tnan what lie conceives to
be in accordance wita the true Republican
principles of our government, as laid down
in the Constitution, anil best calculated to
bring peace and prosperity to our country.
The dominant party of the North are
strong, and if they, in their strength, attempt
lo force upon the country unconstitutional
and unjust measures, prejudicial to the in
terests of the people Andrew Johnson is
the man to stand by the rights of the people,
and sustain them to the last. To-day, there
is less ammonify between the people of the
North and South, than either section sup
poses. That there should le unkind fee bigs
is Ult natural ; but these feelings do not per
vade the masses of either ss-ction. Spare
your denunciations of the South, and the
acts of the Southern people. Do not place
too much confidence in letter-writers and
penny-a-line sensationalists. They are all
wrong, and are giving you wrong informa
tion, 'i'ney cannot comprehend the situa
tion, and properly understand the difference
between antagonism of local associations
and antagonism of National laws. They
mistake the one from the other, and
hence draw conclusions wide from the mark
of truth. The Southern people are willing
to support constitutional government, and
yet tney may not be willing to give hearty
support to a radical, and, to thein, unpleas
ant, change of local and social relations.
We are, to the best of our ability, support
ing a sound constitutional principle in adop
ting the reconstruction policy of President
Johnson. When he vetoed the Freedmen's
limvau bill, we were sorry that such a bill
had been presented, and that such a bill had
to he vetoed. As soon as we read the bill,
we felt confident that when it reached the
President, he could not fail to detect many
bad leatures in it. Because the President ve
toed that bill, many rebels w ere jubilant and
praised him to the skies. They did so as
they thought, because he was supporting the
rebels. In this they are mistaken. It was
nothing of the kind, and men could not
make a greater mistake than to ever presume
it. The Freedmen's bill had many very ob
jectionable features, and was not only expen
sive, but it was, in the most puii-, oiuous to
everv principle of free government; and as
an honest, fair minded man. with the inter
ests of the people both North and South, in
a measure in his hands, the President could
not do otherwise than to object to the bill,
and in so doing, he did not pause to ask
whether it would please a rebel, or displease
a Radical. His duty was plain.
Some weak-minded politicians, who are
seeking to hold the reigns of power, tell the
people that the President has sold himself to
the rebels, and that if you support him you
are supporting the rebels. But, we tell you,
it is not necessary to be a rebel to support our
President, but quite to the contrary, and if
the rebels do support him, it is the best evi
dence in the world that the person who
does so is honestly disposed to support the
government and the constitution. Some
persons say, I do not like Johnson. He has
too many friends in the South. Now, in all
fairne.-s, we would ask, what would you
have; Is it President Johnson's fault if reb
els like his course while he is acting for and
administering the government on strictly
constitutional principles. Wo think it the
best endorsement he can have when his ene
mies concede that he is right, and this very
fact proclaims them more loyal to the true
principles of the government than a certain
clsss of Radicals, who cannot sleep of nights,
on. account of their eternal hatred of every
man who, perchance, supported the rebell
ion. Knoxcille Commercial.

Hill as it recently passed the Congress
