The President's Policy.

bly lotaij President's Reply to the Virginia
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 can
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 tliis 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 kick him
out of the door, and send him back, saying
to the people who sent him, "You must
send us a loyal man ?" 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. We will not deny your
people the right of representation, but they
must send a loyal representative."

I will put an end to the Frecdmen's Bu

terview with Governor Cox.
We publish below a letter from Gov. Swain,
President of the University, to B. F. Moore,
Esq., in which the former characterizes in
appropriate terms the conduct of some of the
students in issuing a Ball ticket with Jeffer
son Davis, J. C. Breckinridge, Z. B. Vance,
and other insurgent leaders, as Honorary
Managers. As soon as this conduct was
brought to the attention of Mr. Moore he
wrote to Gov. Swain on the subject, express
ing his condemnation of it in the most deci
ded terms ; and we are glad to find that Gov.
S. concurs with Mr. Moore, as will be seen by
his letter. Mr. Moore is one of the oldest
Trustees, is a member of the Executive Com
mittee, and has always taken a lively interest
in the University. It was, therefore, pecu
liarly appropriate that he should be among
the first to call the attention of President
Swain and the Faculty to this very improper
action on the part of the students. The Fac
ulty promptly expressed its disapprobation
of the conduct of the students; and at a
meeting of the Executive Committee of the
Trustees, in this City, the resolutions of the
Faculty were approved.
We apprehend therewas something more
than " a desire to attract a crowd at Com
mencement, by creating the impression that
great notabilities might be expected to be
present." There are many notabilities, or
persons of distinction, who have taken no
part in the rebellion, but who have staked
their lives to preserve the government ; and
among them we may mention President
Johnson, Gen. Winfield Scott, and Hon. John
M.Botts. If there be any disposition to invite
such "notabilities" to Chapel Hill, that dispo
sition has not thus far been manifested.
We have no concealments on this or any
other subject. We have been and we are yet
friends to the University. We were gratified
when the Legislature made an appropriation
to enable it to resume operations ; and our
only regret was that the State was not able
to do any thing for common schools. But
if the University is to be converted into a
political or partizan machine if its cherish
ed notabilities are to be such persons as Jef- j
ferson Davis, J. C. Breckinridge and Zebu-
Ion B. Vance if the influences that proceed
from it are to be rather against than in favor
of the government of the United States,
then we say let it sink at once. The people
of this State will not be taxed to support a
political University, or an institution which
does not inculcate respect for the government
of the United States and the most thorough
submission to its authority.
The truth is, " the boys" at Chapel Hill
are like many, very many of the " old folks
at home." Almost every influence in high
places and in domestic circles in this State,
is detrimental to the growth of sound, heart
felt loyalty. We are not surprised that " the
boys" should catch and manifest as they
have done, something of the spirit of the
times. In the judgment of very many they
have only acted "imprudently." That is
all. But it is well to remember that they are
already making a record for the future, and
that a few years hence, they may have occa
sion to regret that they looked no higher for
lights to guide their footsteps than the still
unrepentant, unsubdued leaders of the Great
Rebellion. If these leaders are distinguish
ed, and therefore worthy, of special honor,
it is because of their attempt to strike down
and destroy the best government the world
ever saw. We do not include Gen. Cox (one
.of the Honorary Managers,) in these remarks,
as we believe that he has seen his error, and
has submitted in good faith to the na

in the Spring of 1835. I declined it. Pres

preceding, and the Executive Committee had
appointed froressor Anuereuu iu
Funeral Oration at Commencement, and I
advised the young men then, as I would have
done in the present instance, if I had been
consulted, or had I suspected their designs,
that the condition of things around us called
for anything else than festive demonstrations.
I have no mode of preventing occasional
outrages of this nature than that suggested
some years since, when Arch Bishop Hughes
was invited to deliver the Valedictory ser
mon to the Senior Class the adoption of an
Ordinance requiring all nominations of this
character to be submitted to the Executive
Committee for confirmation.
With sincere thanks for your prompt at
tention to this matter, I remain,
Very sincerely and truly,
Your friend and servant,
B. F. Moore, Esq. D. L. SWAIN.
We have asked repeatedly who the uncon
ditional Union men are: but the Standard
has never advised us on this point. Are
they those who favor Thad. Stevens' accursed
schemes, and oppose the President ? Or are
they the few sneaks and skulks that remain
ed among us during the war, and who can
now take the infamous test oath ? If the
former, we trust to God that Gov. Worth
may never appoint any of thein to office. If
the latter, we doubt very much, whether he
could find a single -one who possesses the
respectability of the thief who has paid the
penalty of a violated law at the whipping
post. We do not believe there is a single
man in the State, of any intelligence, hon
esty, and respectability, who remained South
during the war, that can take the test oath
without perjuring himself. We know some
of the most thoroughly consistent Union
men during the war that refuse to take the
oath for office or the emoluments of office.
Now if the Standard means those who can
take the test oath, we tell him the number is
exceedingly small, and that these few are,
not only utterly incompetent, but are also
unworthy of any official position of trust
and honor. We know many negroes that
we would prefer to see in office to such men.
We will tell the Banner what we mean by
an unconditional Union man, and we trust
that paper will do us the justice to copy it.
We are in favor of the President's plan of
restoration. We regard the President, the
Congress, and the Supreme Court as the
three great co-ordinate departments of the
government: We are for the government.
We desire to see the Union fully restored.
We want this done on the best terms that
can be obtained for North-Carolina ; but if
we cannot get our own terms we will submit
to such as may be imposed by the govern
ment, as represented by the three co-ordinate
branches referred to, before we will remain
out of the Union indefinitely. We prefer the
Union on any terms to anarchy, renewed
civil war, military rule, and ultimate Mexi
canization. During the rebellion we were
for peace on the best terms we could get ; and
now we are for the Union on the best
terms we can get. This is what we mean by
the expression referred to. We believe with
Senator Call, that it is not for the South to
dictate to the government what its policy
shall be towards us. " Our part is that of
silence and hope."
We know that these views are exceedingly
unpopular at this time, but we want no pop
ularity if it is to be obtained only by aban
doning what is just, loyal, and right.
It does not follow, because we hold these
views, that we are insensible to the harsh
treatment to which, in some respects, our
people are subjected. We believe the col-
lection of federal taxes should be susnenrle.l I
by Congress until the States are restored.
, . .
We do not think that the production of cot-,
ton should be further burthened by taxation.
We deprecate all abuses in the Frcedmen's
Bureau, and every unnecessary assumption
of military power. We believe the States
are entitled to be represented in Congress
when they present members elect "whose
loyalty," in the language of President John
son, "cannot be questioned under any ex
isting constitutional or legal test," and whose
State governments are in the bands of loyal
men. we also noici tnat no iurtncr amend
ments to the Constitution should be made
until the recently insurgent States are repre
sented in the Congress. But it does not
follow that we should denounce and abuse
the Congress as an usurping " rump concern "
or that we should abuse the Northern peo
ple as Yankees, and inculcate hatred towards
them or that we should attempt to inflame
the minds of the people against the govern
ment. Such a course can result only in evil.
We admit that the great body of the
Union men of this State cannot take the test
oath as it now stands, and that in some of
its provisions it is hard even on Union men.
We hope to see this oath modified, and we
feel sure it will be after a while. But this
oath is not objected to by President John
son, and it is one of the laws of the land.
As such it is entitled to the respect of everv
citizen, lo call it infamous to say that
those citizens who can take it are sneaks,
and skulks, and thieves, and meaner than
negroes to hold it up thus to the country,
cannot fail still further to inflame the South
ern mind against the government, and to
call down on our impoverished people still
further privations and sufferings. No man
who is loyal at heart will speak thus of one
ofthelawsof the United States.
The result of all this will be, if continued,
to paralyze the federal government in this
State and to bring its authority into alisolute
contempt. We shudder to contemplate what
would then follow. If our people are wise,
and if they would escape utter destruction
in the end, no matter what they may feel to
be their grievances at this time, and no mat
ter how much they may resent the action of
the Congress towards the recently insurgent
States, they will promptly and sternly dis
countenance such sentiments as are expressed
by the Banner, the Fayetteville News, the
-Baleigh Sentinel, the Wilson North-Carolinian,
and other papers of that stamp.

Freedmene Bureau in North-Carolina,
We also publish from the New York Herald,
letters from Generals -Howard and Whittle-'
sey, explaining and defending the conduct of
officers of the Bureau. '
The Report made to the President is an
official document. It discloses not only cor
ruption on the. part of certain officers, but
cruelty towards freedmen by even ministers
of the holy gospel, which is calculated to ex
cite profound indignation. Complaint has
been made that under the laws of this State
freedmen are whipped, as white men are
whipped, for the crime of stealing; but there
is no law in North-Carolina, and there never
has been, for levying heavy taxes on certain
classes of free persons, or for hanging them up
by the wrists for hours for refusing to work,
or for " inflicting cruel or unusual punish
ments." But this, it seems, has been done
by reverend and pious ministers of the gos
pel, who have been loud in their protesta
tions of regard and affection for the " poor
We agree with Gen. Howard that much
has been said to the effect that " the negroes
will not work." But if it be true that they
are free, they have the same right to be idle
that the white man has. There is no more
right to force a freedman to work than there
is to force a white citizen. But it will hard
ly do to require a freedman to work at the
point of the bayonet for the benefit of sala
ried officers of the government, and then de
clare with an air of triumph that the negro
has been shown to be industrious in his hab
its and disposed to labor.
The Frecdmen's Bureau was intended to
be a great public benefit. This was no
doubt the object in view in establishing it.
The people of the whole country have a right
to expect that the affairs of the Bureau will
be administered justly, impartially, and
honestly. It ought not to be used to sub-
serve private or 6elfish ends.
We are not disposed to do injustice to
any one, and our columns are, therefore, open
to all who may feel aggrieved at any thing
we may have copied or said. Our only ob

To tile Readers of the Daily Progress.
With this issue of The Daily Progress I
take my leave of its readers. 1 established
the paper in Newbern, in 1S58, where its
publication was continued until the fall of
that place in March, 1862 ; it was resumed
in lialeigh in November of the same year,
and has been r 'gularly published ever since,
with the exception of an interruption of a
few days, on the occasion of the occupation
of the city by the federal forces.
I have labored hard all these years to
make a good newspaper, and when taking
part in politics at all to advocate and incul-
i cate correct principles. I have committed
errors, of course, but I tnwt my friends and

have accomplished, passing over and blot
ting from their memory the evil. If at any
time in the heat of political discussion, I
have done any wrong to brethren of the
press, or others, I appeal to them to extend

It is with a pang that I dissolve my con
nection with the patrons of Tlte Daily Prog
ress, but there is a feeling of relief in the
fact that t feel I have committed the paper
to safe hands. The paper will hereafter be
conducted by Capt. Henry E. Orr, and Mr.
J. J. Guthrie, Jr., both gentlemen of con-
j siderable experience in the journalistic pro
fession. Capt. Orr has been editorially con
nected with the paper for nearly a year,
having been employed soon after the sur
render of Lee's army, to which he was at
tached, and to him the public have been
largely indebted for the excellence the pub
lication has maintained as a newspaper. He
is a practical printer, which in the manage
ment of a daily publication is a great ad
vantage ; before the war he was editorially
connected with some of the leading papers
in Virginia, and enjoys a fine reputation as a
writer. Mr. Guthrie is a son of Capt. John
J. Guthrie, who is well and most favorably
known to many of our people ; he has been
for some time connected with the daily press
of Virginia, and brings to his new field of
operations ability and experience. These
gentlemen start on their new career under
favorable auspices, with many facilities and
advantages that would not be enjoyed by
others, and we bespeak for them an extend
ed and liberal patronage at the hands of the
people of the State, fully persuaded that
they will deserve all that a generous confi
dence may bestow.
Messrs. Orr and Guthrie will fulfill my un
finished contracts for advertising and sub
scription, so that no wrong will be done any
one by the change ; and they are authorized
to collect all debts due the office for work
done since the 17th of April. 1865, with the
exception of a few stipulated accounts that
have been reserved.
To my friends and patrons in this city, in
Newbern, and throughout the State, who
have stood by, sustained and encouraged me
in the terrible trials that I have encountered
during the last eight years, I avail myself
of this last opportunity to express my last
And now, readers of The Progress, it only
remains for me to bid you an affectionate
farewell, and to express the hope that, should
I ever ascend the tripod in North-Carolina
again, it may be under better auspices and
a fairer political sky than that which now
overhangs us. . J. L. PaarennGTOir.

Identification of the BodyThe Particulars.
The body of Preston King, late collector of

membered, committed suicide in November
last by jumping off a lloboken ferry-boat in
to the river, was discovered at 5 o'clock on
! Monday morning drifting in through the
I gap of the Atlantic dock, Brooklyn. The
remains were fully identified by several gen
tlemen connected with the custom-house as
being those of Mr. King, and the articles
found in the pockets of his clothing estab
lishes the identitv beyond a doubt. The
remains will be taken to Ogdensburg,
they will be interred. The body was some
what decomposed, but the clothing was in a
remarkably good state ot preservation, con
oidenng the long time that it has been in
the water. A cord was fouud over the inner
coat, embracing the shoulders and the waist,
:is if placed there to sustain some weighty
substance. 1 he lact that a weight had been
Huspended was shown by the appearance of
the cording, to winch hung a number ot
broken ends. In the pockets of the coat and
pants were found a pair of gold spectacles,
a gold tobacco box, a pocket knife and a
pocket book, but the latter contained no
documents of any kind.
