MAY 15. 18G6.
The President's Policy.
The representatives of the States should
be loyal men, willing to abide by and be
devoted to the union axd tee coxstitc
tiox of the States.
At-t. responsible positions and places ought
to be confined distinctly and clearly to men
who are unmistakably asd unquestiona
bly loyal. President's Reply to the Yiryhiia
I hold it my duty to recommend the ad
mission of every State to its share in public
legislation when it presents itself in the per
sons of representatives whose loyalty cas
not be questioned under any existing con
stitutional or legal test. President's Veto
The Constitution declares that no State
shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in Ihe
Senate of the United States without its con
sent. Then, where do we stand ? All that
is needed to finish this great work of resto
ration is for the two Houses respectively to
determine the question. Oh ! but some one
will say, " A traitor might come in The
answer to that is that each House must be
the judge, and if a traitor presents himself,
cannot either House know that he is a traitor ?
. And if he is a traitor, can they not hick him
out of thedoor, and send him back, saying
to the people who sent him, "You must
8eht Irs a loyal max ?" Is there any diffi
culty in that ? If a traitor presents himself
to either House, cannot that House say to
him, " No, you cannot be admitted into this
body. Go back. "SVe will not deny your
, people the right of representation, but they
MUST SEND A LOYAL REPRESENTATIVE."
' President's Address to the Soldiers and Sailors.
I will put an end to the Freedmen's Bu
reau just as soo- as the South, by proper
action for the protection; of the fheed
men, make it unnecessary. President's In
terview with Governor Cox.
"We make the following extracts from the
last number of the Fayetteville Xcirs :
"We know not what others. think we
carte Vnle what may be the result of our ex
pression of opinion but we would rather
see the United States the conquered province
of Russia or Austria, and have the taskmas

feel a sort of delight at the contemplation of
a thousand headless trunks every morning,
and the dripping blades of a thousand

J humiliating disgrace which will follow the
ratification of these articles, by which we

made already ? Shall we trust the promises

of Holden, that if we would repudiate our
debt and abolish slavery, we-nould get back
into the Union, only, to be cheated ? No !
rather suffer every woe to which flesh is heir
than fix infamy and eternal disgrace on our
selves. If they wish to make these things

not on us, to our everlasting shame and
Now, we purpose to define what our peo
ple mean, and all they mean, when they say
they are loyal.
They mean that circumstances, over which
they could exert no control, and against
which they struggled long and well, have
rendered it necessary either to seek some
other clime, or to give their allegiance to the
United States, that it was most convenient
. to give it to the United States, that to receive
the protection of that government it was ne
cessary to take an oath of fealty, and that
oath taken, it became a matter of honor to
give up all intent of resistance to the author
lty of that government, and a matter of du
ty to be true and faithful to that Constitu
tion which was sworn to be supported.
The men who took (hese oaths and who
became citizens of the United -States, and
who have' been obedient and faithful and
loyal to the laws, are not at heart friends of
the government of which they are subjects.
They were defeated by the United States in
an vBttempt to perfect a long cherished
scheme which must have, resulted in the
greatest benefit and advantage to themselves.
They were human, and they could feel noth
ing elso than bitterness for those whose tri
umph was in the ruin of their hopes and the
blasting ana crushing out oi tneir aspira
tions. They do not love the government ot
excite no emotions of pride in their bosoms, j
for thev have seen it trailed in defeat too of-
ten as their starrv crossed battle flag waved
victorious in the summer sunlight.
The glory and strength of the nation and

concern to the Southern captives. No hope
of future national grandeur dazzles them, no
dream of the American Eagle with one foot

pole, with the tip of his tail in the Pacific,
and the beak of his bill in the Atlantic
ocean, ever awakens the proud reflection that j

this City some months since, on a charge 1

and seditious as the foregoing. Gen. Ruger j
kindly released him on his parole ; and it j
was understood at the time that Gov. Worth,
then Provisional Treasurer,interceded for him.
and agreed to be his surety that he would do '
better in future. " '
We make the following extract from the
Xor'h-Carolliiian, printed at "Wilson, in this :
' Returning reason may restore that gov- '
eminent to its pristine glory, but we, who
venerate wisdom and love honor, must ever
detest the vile puppets who have usurped in
the councils of the nation the places once
filled by honorable men, and we laugh to
scorn their futile attempts to impose on us
terms which no people, not entirely devoid
of common sense, could accept.
We have asked for restoration, but we
cannot accept it on tne oasis oi rsew n.ng-
land's " blue laws," nor will we have .'t w:
a portion of bur iellow-citizens disfranchis
ed, for having done what they deemed their
duty, and what, before Almighty God, we
could not hesitate to do again."'
The following is from a paper called The
State, published at Weldon, in this State :
"A strong man armed, comes into your
house, despoils you of your goods, robs,
burns, ravishes, destroys and lays waste.
You rise in arms against him. But he says,
' Hands off; I have on your dear father's J.
garments, and as you love and regard him. "
and are ' loyal ' to his memory, respect and
reverence my person I' Now, what is it to
you that the ruffian has on your father's old '
clothes ? Does it excuse his crimes and
enormities, or does it not rather exagerate
them and make them more hateful ? He is.
to yon, as one who has stolen the garments
of heaven to serve the devil with. What i 1
it, to the citizen that in the name of the
Union, and under the 'flag,' like enormities ;
are c -mmitted ? Is his outburst of indigna
t .n to be hushed ; his revolting sense of in i
justice and wrong to be smothered and re
pressed with the shallow and mcaningles?

The following is from the Petersburg
" There is no guaranty, and can be none,

except a conviction that it is a blessing. To
the South it ' L now nothing but a curse,

disturbers of the peace of her people.
" Can you afford to make this condition of

this relation for a time, but it cannot for all

The following is from the Richmond Ex
44 The South (God help us !) lies prostrate
beneath a majority that has prostituted the
freest form of government under heaven to
the worst purposes of tyranny. Caligula or
Nero would be a better ruler than the infuri
ate mob that seems to have no reason, no
mercy, no justice, no law, no fear and no re
morse. If we are knaves, it is high time for
us to cringe and fawn. If we are cowards,
: let us tremble. Thank God I we are neither.
We are men who know our rights, and
among those rights are some inestimable
ones that we will maintain to the' last gasp.
We have no arms. We have surrendered the
vocation of soldier. We no longer confront
violence with violence, force with force. But
we are strong in honor and endurance, and
we will suffer any extremity of ill before we
will sink into that meek servility which re
nounces manhood and makes life despicable."
There can be no hope for the restoration
of the Union aa long as such sentiments are
approved by any considerable portion;f
our people. But it is a sad reflection that
just such newspapers aa the above are most
popular, and have a good circulation, while
Union papers in our mids.t are languishing

their people as American citizens. We come
with our hearts open with all hostile recol

honorable and sincere in our struggle, so

; for us of the South to say what shall be the

part is that of silence and of hope. The re

i ias, in the sympathies of the American peo
ple, and more especially in the hearts ot the
hrave men against whom we fought, of whom
'General Slocum is the representative and the

to assure you that in some way, either with
or without law. I believe the people of the

ed the meeting as follows :
Fdloic-vitizens a iid Pel loir-members of the Bar :
If I had the intellectual or physical ability
it this time to deliver an eloquent eulogiuui
upon the death of our friend, this is not the
occasion nor this the audience for which I
should deem it necessary to do so. From a
very long and intimate acquaintance with
the deceased, commencing with our bo'
hood, and reaching to the termination of his
'ife after a period of fifty years or more of
intimate political, social and personal friend-
nn, without Having a ciouu intervening be-
t ween us I think it, perhaps, not inappro
mate to give to many here, who did not
know the early history of Mr. Badger and
lis career, a few facts that niay, perhaps, in
He was born on the 13th of April, 1795,
md was seventy-one years of age last month.
We. was a noor voniifr man Hnvinir tpppW.
here in the summer of 1816 to obtain a li-
cense (he then only twenty-one years of age,)
lo go into Court. It was then that I first
became acquainted with him. He obtained
his license and returned to Newbern. and, in
the course of that summer, he was elected a
member of the Legislature from the town of
Newborn. He came here a boy. the youngest
man in the Assembly, though of rare promise
and attainments, extraordinary colloquial
ability and fine debating power, and instant
ly took a position that no other man had
known or thought like a meteor that had
shot down among them, no one knowing from
whence it came. I remember it well.
The late Chief Justice Ruffin,'who was at
that time a member of the Legislature from
tlie town of Hillsborough', was elected, dur
ing that session, a Judge of -the Superior
Court. Being attracted by the brilliant
talent developed at so early a period in Mr.
Badger, he invited him to go to Hillsboro,'
take his bundle of papers with him, and
stay there. He did so. He took his prac
tice in the Courts and very early became dis
tinguished Vis one of the leading members of
the bar, as he was. While on this circuit,
(I forget how long,) he married the daughter
of Gov. Turner in the town of Louisburg,
where he lived but a short time before he
was elected a judge of the Superior Court.
I remember ..being there at the time when
William Moore, a member of the Legisla
ture from that County, who was a friend of
Mr. Badger's,' came home with post haste to
let us know he was. elected. I remember
the joy we all had in having a civic proces
sion at night men, women and children
rejoicing about the news. After a while his
wife, died and h6married again r-the daugh
ter of the late Col. Polk, by whom he had
two children. After some few years she
died and he married the - accomplished
lady who is now his wife; '- Wherever he
went he made his mark on account of his in- '
dependence and his great skill in the man- .
agement of a cause ; he took a case up and
pursued it without reference to party. He
continued' but a short time a judge; the at
tractions of a lucrative practice were too

wrote and th'o speeches that, he published.-
The labor pf writing was very great to him

ed by a conimittee and circulated, over this
State, and re-published and. re-printed oyer
the United States, and-, was confessedly; the
strongest partisan paper foT the life,"chai;ac
ter and history of William Henry Harrison.
Harrison ' was,f lected, as you "know, Presi
dent, and Ju invited .Mr. -Badger to. take -at'
seat in the Cabinet, and he did so. .''He Was
Secretary "tf tile Navv and continued . so I
believe, until; nearly the . close of the four
yearswhen he returned home." He was af
terwards, elected,' Senator, in Congress, and
yon knojv how he stood up" with snch men
as Clay, and SKebstefi Calhoun and Benton,"
and. in; the . Supreme Court with . Reverdy
Johnson, VWebsterv and others,, inferior to
none of theni. -;And when the war separated
this country h ha,d then business in the Su
preme Court-of "the" United States to a very
large amount, which promised to be of ex
traordinary benefit and'profit.
I believe, fjellowrcitizens, this is all I have
to say. You" know' his character. You
know how kind and benevolent a man he
was, and, I suppose, he had no enemies in
the world ; how. he lived, publicly and pri
vately, the friend of -everybody, and every
body, I believe, his friend. These are a few
instances in his history which every citizen
in the State will cherish, and which may not
be inappropriate to those who are here.
At the conclusion of Gov. Manly's address,
on motion of jQ.' Busbee, Esq., Ed. G. Hay
wood, Esq:, wits chosen Secretary. ;
On motion jof B. F. Moore, Esq., a com
mittee of five, was appointed to draft resolu

The chaiiTtan appointed the following
gentleman a committee, Messrs. B. F. Moore,

Besolced. Thnt by the death of Mr. Badger,
we are profoundly sensible the community,
State and country has been deprived of one
who, most loved and respected in life, will
also be long mourned and revered by his
friends and an admiring public.

upright and faithful public service, and in
his just and generous sentiments and tried

jurist, statesman nnd christian, whose exam
pie will be vahtsl s? long as his fame and
his character shall be remembered.
Itcsolted, Thafc ;the members of the bar
now present be requested, in respectful and
affectionate acknowledgment of his kind and
considerate treatment pf his juniors, and his
courtesy to all, to wear the usual badge of
mourning for tin rty days.
Jlesolfed, Tliit we tender to his afflicted
family our most-sincere and heartfelt sympa
thy in this bereavement, nnd that the Chair
man transmit a copy of these resolutions to
them, and have the proceedings of this meet
ing inserted in the newspapers of the city.
After reading the
resolutions Mr. Moore
I shall make.no extended remarks on the
distinguishedsubject of the resolutions re-
It was the happy fortune of my early life
j to become acquainted with Mr. I3adgcr. at
! the house of my legal preceptor, where he
j spent a day or two. He was then "a Judge
on his circuit, and I a student at law. More
than forty years have passed away, but the
interesting occasion is still fresh in my mem
ory. During the greater part of this bygone
time we have met at the bar and in the walks
! of private life. It- was indeed my happy
fortune to make his acquaintance, but it was
i my still happier fortune to enioy, at all times
and almost ever since, his warm, intimate,
unvaried and unreserved friendship. No oc
currence has ever drawn the shade of a line
between us. "'7.- .., .
I may justly claim, therefore, to have
known him as perfectly as one man may know
another. ; -
For his' very distinguished reputation at
the bar, it is enough tojjay of him or any
other man, that he was an Ajax among such
members of the bar, as Sea well, Hogg, Nash
and Gaston. - "
Besides being, in my judgment, the most
accomplished legal logician I ever heard, he
was one of the most eloquent of orators. In
conversation the brilliancy and charms of his
colloquial powers were dazzling and unri
valled. . , -';'?
In truth, Mr4 Chairman, ; the very highest
tribute which Can be paid' the numerous
and fellow-citizen requires no sketch from the
pencil of fancy.r': Without the aid of flatte
ry, all may be said -of him - that can be rea
sonably said of the most gifted and excellent
of men.' " S'-.-, - .- :
The resolutions express, truly, my appre
ciation of the qualities aud character of my
lamented friend ; and, without another word,
I might drop ' them, as my offering on his
tomb. v But, as this assemblage is called to
gether at the instance; of tbebar, I will use it to
illustrate one trait ;qf his character, for which
he was pre eminently distinguished. The
illustration exhibits a degree of stern up
rightness, which might serve as a chieforna
ment to the memory of any man, whatever
might be his fame, in all other greatness.
We all know thatv notwithstanding every
check and restraint, which,.' education, habit
and position can place; around the heart
amidst an interesting and exciting trial at
law, the feelirtgs'of the advocate will lean
and powerfully lean--towards . his client's
cause ; and it is, seldom, indeed, that one.
thus moved, can impartially present the full
case for revision in t a higher- court, without
addition to or ,, subtraction from the true
merits of both sides.- . Yet nothing was more
common, where Mr. Badger was concerned
as counsel, than to commit to his discretion,
the task of presenting the case for its final
review. ' '.' -5f
This confidence was a proud tribute to his
integrity ; let it be our ambition to deserve
it likewise ! :r "-':7- 'j ' - .-
.. At the conclusion of ,Mr, Moore's remarks,
R. W. Lassiter, Esq.V said i . - ..;
I desire" (6 bear some humble part in offer
ing the last testimonial of respect and affeo-
tion to one, -who has for many years com
manded so much of my admiration for his
great talents; and for all those qualities that
constitute excellence in human character. In
imany respects. we never Bhall look upon his .
htte again.-jl his generation win pass away,
and no counterpart of him will arise to chal
lengecoraparison.. :This century will pass,
away'and the historian.'jwho can adorn hi s
pages with another, in all things the equal o
this great man, may well ;be proud of hi ;
task, and well deserve the congratulations or
his countrymen. . '
Nprth-Carolina may well mourn the de
parture of one on whom she had delighted
to bestow so much honor, and who so nobly
filled every position to which she had as
signed him. '" ' -
-The profession to which he belonged, and
which regarded him as the standard of pro
priety, will? uni.to in mourning the loss'o'
such a man and such a mind. To the rarest
powers of logiCj he joined a discrimination
that was never at fault ; and so varied and
rich were the stores of his mind, that one
scarcely knew which to admire most, the
compactness'ftnd force of his argument, or
the rhetorical grace and beauty with which
he invested it.
This melancholy occurrence would, at any
time, have produced the; profoundest sensa
tion in our hiidst but, coming as it does, at
a time when there is so much to burden and
sicken the heart, it is peculiarly distressing.
I trust that the influence of his life and
character will grow stronger and bry-hter
with the flight of years ; and, though dead,
ho niay .still survive by the beneficient influ
ence he exerted whilst living. ' ' c'.
Hiaf 'siini is 'set 1 A great luminary; has"
been struck from the sky I There is a void
which cannot be filled ; and "no where is this
so deeply felt as in the family of which he
was the head and ornament, .i. f , -
: But there is a Power that can ' console in
the greatest bereavements and troubles. ' Let
rus hope that the loving Father of all may
succor, sustain ana console mem, m wis
their sore affliction.
These resolutions were then unanimously
adopted, and the meeting adjourned after the
announcement by the chair that the funeral
would take place the next afternoon, Sunday,
from the Episcopal Church, and that the fol
lowing gentlemen would act as pall-bearers :
G. W. Mordecai, B. F. Moore, Thos. Bragg,
J. H. Bryan, R. W. Lassiter, George Little,
Gov. Worth and H. W. Busted.
On Sunday afternoon the Episcopal Church
was densely crowded by a large concourse of
sympathizing citizens, who after the ser
vices at the Church were ended, followed the
honored remains to the place of their last
repose. No higher testimonial of the uni
versal respect entertained for the many vir
tues of Mr. Badger could have been given
by the citizens of this community, among
whom he had lived so long and by whom he
was so well known.

nothing left of the law, and it could ney,er

TnE Dignity of the Senate Asserted.
The Senate yesterday sustained its tra
ditionary reputation as the conservative
branch of the Federal Government, by stri
king from the postal approj:riation bill a mis
chievous amendment, avowedly placed there
with the intention of hampering the oflicial
action of the President of the United States.
Well did that able jurist. Senator Poland,
of Vermont, in introducing the proceedings
which brought about the reconsideration and
the rejection of this amendment, style it
wholly indefensable, wrong in principle, and
a position upon which no political party
could stand. Unterrified by the abuse heap
ed upon him by some of his Radical associ
ates. Senator Poland demanded the rejection
of a doctrine that was really revolutionary,
and the Conservatives of the country will be
gratified to learn that he has been sustained
by a majority of those Senators permitted to
occupy seats in the Upper House, who to
use his words have taken higher and nobler
ground than mere political expediency, and
stand upon the great doctrines of liberty and
justice. To those Senators who have thus
disdained political quacKery, and risen above
the action of political adventurers, the thanks
of all true-hearted men are due. Xational
Convicts Sent Sooth. Forty-eight ne
gro convicts, in jail at Washington, have
been released and sent to Louisiana under
charge of the Freedmen's Bureau. A nol
pros, was entered in each-'-case on condition
that the prisoner would go South. The"
despatch says that some of these prisoners
were ' contrabands," and some were 44 na
tives," by the latter term meaning, probably,
persons born in or near Washington, who
are thus sent, away from their homes and
families to be made a charge upon a strange
people. And this work is done by that be
nevolent institution, the Freedmen's Bureau,
and under the very eyes of the philanthropists
of the Senate and House. : .. ":
By what right one State' is made a penal
colony for the convicts of another, we can
not say, but the act is entirely unjustifiable,
and is" an outrage upon the people of Louis
iana, and upon the parties who can thus be
torn from their homes. The South is poor
enough now, without being burdened with
this fresh installment. Boston would no
doubt gladly welcome these poor creatures
to its embrace, and set about the task of re
forming .them, but' it is the very' refinement
of cruelty .to expose these negroes, lately re
leased from slavery, to the perils and tempta
tions of life among the unreconstructed.

Another Spring has been -discovered in the

who have examiued it, and witnessed its effects in
some cases during several seasons, must prove
beneficial in Atonic Dyspepsia, Chlorosis, Uterine,
Sereons and Neuralgic Affectioru connected with
Debility; and of especial service to persons living

been robbed of its normal proportion of iron by
