Speeeh. by the President.
"Washington, Aug. 18. There was a great
crowd present to-day to hear the President
in response to Beverdy Johnson, who pre
sented the official proceedings of the Conven
He said, referrinjsr "with feeling to the scene
represented of South-Carohna-and Massachu
setts entering the Convention together, he
"was over come, and could not but conclude
that an overruling Providence was doing us
aright. He said our brave men have
performed their duties in the field, and have
won laurel imperishable, but, turning to
General Grant, he continued, but there are
greater and more important duties toper
form, and while we have had their co-opera
tion in the field we now need their efforts to
perpetuate peace. Applause. The Execu
tive Department had tried to pour oil on the
wounas, ami restore the Union, but it had
not entirely succeeded. "We have seen, he
said, in one department of the Governient
every effort to prevent the restoration of
peace and harmony of the Union. "We have
seen hanging upon the verge of the Govern
ment, as it were, a body called, or which as
sumedto be the Congress of the United
states, while in fact it is a Congress of only
a part of the States.. We have seen this
Congress asume and pretend to be for the
Union when its every step and act tended to
perpetuato disunion, and makes a disruption
of the States inevitable, instead of promot
ing reconciliation and harmony. Its- legis
lation has partaken of the character of pen
alties, retaliation and revenge. This, has
been the course and the policy of one portion
of your Government. The humble individ
ual who is now addressing you stands the
representative of another department of the
Government. The manner in-which he was
called upon to occupy that position, I shall
not allude to on this occasion. Suffice it to
say, that he is here under the Constitution-of
the country, and being here by virtue of its
provisions, he takes his stand upon that char
ter of our liberties as the great rampart of
civil ana religions liberty. Prolonged' cheer
ing. Having been taught in my early life,
to hold it sacred,and having practiced upon
it during my whole public career, and I shall
ever continue to reverence the Constitution
of my fathers, and to make it my guide.
Hearty applause. The President proceed
ed, and denied the charge that he had ever
been tyranical or a despot,, but said such
charges were simply intended to deceive and
delude The public mind into ; tne Deiiet that
there is some one in power, who is usurping
and trampling npon the rights of the Con
stitution. It is done by those who make.
such charges for the purpose of covering
their own acts.": 11 hat's so, ana applause.)
have felt it my duty, in - vindication of
principle and the Constitution of my country,
to call the attention ofmy countrymen to
these proceedings. "When we come to exam
ine, who has been playing the tyrant, by
whom do we find despotism exercised ? As
to myself, the elements ofmy nature,the pur
suits ot my lite nave not made me, eith er in
my feeling or in my practice, oppressive. My
nature on the contrary is rather defensive in
its character, but I will say that, having ta
ken my stand upon the broad principles of
liberty and the Constitution, there is not
power enough on earth to drive me from it.
1 Loud and prolonged applause. Having
placed myself upon that broad platform, I
have not been awed or dismayed, or
intimidated by either threats or encroach
ments, but have stood there in con
duction with patriotic spirits sounding
the tocsin of alarm when 1 deemed the cita
del of liberty in danger. Great applause.
I said on a previous occasion, and repeat now,
that all that is necessary in this great strug
gle against tyranny and despotism, was that
the struggle should be sufficiently audible
for the American people to hear and proper
ly understand. They did hear, and looking
on and seeing who the contestants were and
what the struggle was about to be determin
ed, that they would settle this question on
the side of the Constitution, and of principle.
I proclaim here to-day, as I have on previous
occasions, that my faith is in the great mass
of the people. In the darkest hour of this
struggle, when the clouds seemed to be most
lowering, my faith, instead of giving way,
loomed up through the cloud beyond while
I saw that all would be well in the end.
My countrymen, we all know that tyranny
and despotism in the language of Thomas
Jefferson, can be exercised and exerted more
effectually by the many than the one. We
have seen a Congress gradually encroach,
step by step, and violate, day after day, and
month atter month, the Constitutional rights
and the fundamental principles of the Gov
ernment. We have seen a Congress that
seemed to forget that there was a limit to the
sphere and scope of legislation. We have
seen a Congress in a minority, assume to usurp
power which, if allowed to be carried out,
would result in despotism, or in monarcny
itself. This is truth, and because others as
well as myself have seen proper to avjpeal to
the patriotism and Republican feeling of the
country, we have been denounced in the
severest terms, blander upon slander, vitu
peration upon vituperation ot the most vii
lianous character has made its way through
the press. What, gentlemen, has been your
and my sin ? what has been the cause of our
offending ? I will tell you. Daring to stand
by the Constitution of our fathers. I consid
er the proceedings of this Convention, Sir, as
more important than those of any Conven
tion that ever assembled in the United States
Great applause. When I look with my
mind's eye upon that collection of citizens
comin g together voluntarily, and sitting in
council with ideas, with principles anil views
commensurate with all the States coexten
sive with the whole people, and contrast it
with the collection of persons who are trying
to destroy the country, I regard it as more
important than any Convention that has as
sembled since 1787. Renewed applause.
I think I may also say, that the declarations
that were there made, are equal to the De
claration of Independence itself, and I here
to-day, pronounce them a second Declaration
of Independence. Cries of glorious and a
most enthusiastic and prolonged applause.
Your address and declaration are nothing
more nor less than a re-uffirniation of the
Conststution of the United States yes, I
will go farther and say that the declaration
you have made, that the principles you have
enunciated in your address are a second
Proclamation and Emancipation to the peo
ple of the United States (renewed applause)
for in proclaiming and re-proclaiming
these great truths yon ha.c laid down a
Constitutional platform upon which all can
make common cause and stand united to
gether for the restoration of uhe States and
the preservation ot the
reference to party.
The question only is the salvation of the
country, for one country rises above all party
considerations or influences. How manv
are there in the United States that now re
quire to be free ? The have the shackles
ubon their limbs, and are bound as rigidly
as though thev were in fact in slavery. I re
peat, then, that your declaration is the sec
ond Proclamation of Emancipation to the
United States, and offers a common ground
upon which all patriots can stand. Ap
Air. Chairman and gentlemen, let me, m
this connection, ask what I have to gain more
than the advancement ot the public welfare?
I am as much opposed to the indulgence of
egotism as any one, but here in a conversa
tional manner, while formally receiving the
proceedings ot this Convention, 1 may be
permitted again to ask, what have I to gain,
by consulting human ambition, more than I
have gained ? Except in one thing, my race
is nearly run ; I have been placed in the high
office which I occupy under the Constitution
of the country, and I may say that I have
held from lowest to highest, almost every
position to which a man mav attain in our
Government; and surely, gentlemen, this
should be enough to srratuv a reasonable
ambition. If I wanted authority, or if I
wished to perpetuate my own power, how
easy it would have been to hold and wield
that which was placed in my hands by the
measure called the Freed men's Bureau bill ?
Laughter and applause. With an army
which, it placed at my discretion, I conkl
have remained at the capital of the nation,
and with fifty or sixty millions of appro
priations at my disposal with the machine
ry to be worked by my satraps and depen
dants in everv town and villiage, and then
with the Civil Rights bill following as an
auxiliary (laughter) in connection with
all the other appliances of the Government,
I could have proclaimed myself dictator.
But, gentlemen, my pride and my ambition
have been to occupy that position which re
tains all power in the hands of the people.
It is upon that I have always relied ; it is
upon, that I rely now ; and I repeat that
neither the taunts nor jeers of Congress, nor
of subsidized calumniating press can drive
me from my purpose. Great applause. I
acknowledge no superior except my God, the
author of my existence, and the people of
the United States. Prolonged and enthusi
astic cheering. For the one I try to obey
all his commands as best I can, compatible
with my poor humanity ; for the other in a
political and representative sense the high
behests ot the people have always Deen re
spected and obeyed by me. Applause.
Mr.. Chairman, I have said more than l
had intended to say. For the kind allusion
to myself contained in your address and in
the- resolutions, adopted by the Convention,
let me remark that in this crisis, and at the
present period of my public life, I hold above
all. price, and shall ever recur with feelings
of profound gratification to the last resolu
tion containing the endorsement ot a Con
vention emanating spontaneously from tne
great mass of the people. I trust and hope
that my future actions will be such that you
and the Convention you represent may not
regret the assurance of confidence vou have
my friends, one an all.
please accept my sincere thanks for the kind
manifestations of regard and respect you
have exhibited on this occasion. I repeat
that I shall always continue to be guided by
a conscientious conviction' of duty, and that
alwjy gives one courage under the Consti
tution which I have made my guide.
" si the conclusion of the President's re
in arka three enthusiastic cheers were given
for Andrew Johnson, and three more for Gen,
Grant , . - .. .. .
The President then took a position near
the door. - opening into the Hall, wilth Gen.
Grant by his side, where, as the gentlemen
of the committee and members of the Con
vention passed out he grasped each one by
the hand, and had a smile or a cheering word
for all. After which, they passed on to take
Gen. Grant by the hand.

composition of the teeth. Nothing will do this
