Union League Vnt New York inviting the
presence of tbe delegates at a grand mass
meeting m that City. A committee was ap
pointed on tins subject. . .. . .; ' '"
On motion, it was then ordered that a com
mittee of one from each - State be appointed
to prepare a statement of the condition in
which the loyal men of the now reconstruc
ted States have been placed by Andrew John
son's reconstruction policy. The committee
was appointed, as follows :
Texas J. H. Bell ; Louisiana, Hon. H. C.
Warmouth ; Georgia, C. G. Baylor ; Alabama,
Captain D. H. Bingham ; Mississippi, R. O.
Sydney ; Arkansas, J. "W. Bates ; North-Carolina,
A. "W. Tourgee; Florida, Colonel
Resolutions in relation , to negro suffrage
were introduced, and .. after debate referred.
Also resolutions concerning the New Orleans
massacre, and upon other subjects.
When the Convention adjourned.
The Northern Convention assembled on
Tuesday morning and remained in session,
transacting no business, but entertained them
selves by speeches from prominent person
ages on the condition of the country.
There was also a meeting of Northern Gov
ernors present in Philadelphia, which was
private, reporters being excluded. The
questions discussed were :
First. Whether it was desirable that the
Northern convention should meet again;
Second, Whether, if the Southern conven
tion adopted the principle of negro suffrage
in its platform, it would be wise or politic
to endorse it.
The general expression of sentiment was
in the negative on both these propositions,
the Governors generally taking the ground
that while individually they were in iavor of
negro suffrage, the people of their States were
not yet educated up to that point, and that
therefore to avqid this difficult question it
was desirable that there should be no regular
convocation of the convention. It is under
stood that such is the course resolved upon.
The President and Secretary Seward nt
The President and his party of friends
were welcomed at Niagara, on their way to
Chicago, in a distinguished manner. The
President spoke at considerable length in
vindication of his course, and was warmly
applauded. During his remarks he made
the significant declaration that if "party"
stood in the way of the country, " party
might go to the deviL" Mr. Seward was
also called out,, and made the following
speech. We print it in full, as it is serious and
pointed in its character, and will give our
readers some definite idea of the relations of
this distinguished man towards the Repub
lican party, which he was mainly instrument
al in establishing and building up:
Mr. Seward said: Fellow-citizens, al
though we are on the verge of the State of
New York, I am sure that even here I can
call you neighbors. You do not want a
speech from me. Yes, yes. If you do, it
is only to get up a quarrel between the Presi
dent of the United States and myself, for I
shall have to tell you that after the clear and
lucid exposition of the policy of the Govern
ment, which may be called " his policy" or
" our policy," since Abraham Lincoln com
nieuced it, and it has been carried out since
the inauguration of Andrew Johnson. Af
ter the exposition he himself has given of it.
I want to know in God's name what use he
has for a Secretary at all ? A voice. Do
you indorse it ? "J I will say very frankly
that I always indorse what is right, and
when you find my signature to a paper I will
not disavow it. "When I put my pen to pa
per I stand ready to pay all the cost. Fellow-citizens,
you have heard the President
of the United States traduced. I heard
Abraham Lincoln denounced within tli-ee
months of his death by the bullet of an as
sassin, worse and through a larger portion of
the United States than Andrew Johnson is
now denounced for treason to the Constitu
. tion and the Government ; and let me ask
you this, if, instead of bringing him here in
safety to-day to stand before you and to vin
dicate, in the presence of the whole Ameri
can people, his life, his character, and his
policy, past, present, and future, he had fall
en on the way as Abraham Lincoln : do you
think there is one of you who has reviled
him who would not joiu in his praise and be
as ready to immortalize his fame and glory
as you have been to celebrate the virtues of
Abraham Lincoln ? Cheers. This is it.
The only trouble with a living President is
that he lives. The Virtue of a dead one is
that he is gone, and he can be praised with
safety by those who were incapable of
praising his virtues while he lived. The
President has spoken to you upon a topic I
have never opened, and I did think that I
would never refer to it, and that is, he is
charged, and the members of his Cabinet
and political supporters are charged, with
deserting their party. The charge is that we
have deserted our party, and he has told you
and very properly told you, that it is better
in every case to let parties go down the Falls
than to let the country go to destruction ; so
it would not be a very serious offense if it
had been committed. But he also told you
the truth when he said that it is not possible
to find a word in the record upon which he
was nominated that has been falsified by the
record of his executive acts. Did they not de
clare at Baltimore that the war must be con
tinued until its cause was removed and the
government triumphed in the restoration of
the States, and is not the war ended ? Have
not tbe States been restored ? and where on
earth is the cause of the war t It has
gone into the sepulchre of the record of the
past ages. Cheers. But have I deserted
my party ? Let me call your attention to
my record on that subject. If you will look
back to the month of October, 1865, you
will find there a speech I made you, for when
I speak at Auburn I mean to speak to the
people of the whole State of New-York, and
in that speech I told our whole people that
the President of the United States, Andrew
Jonson, and I with him, proposed to accept
certain conditions and restore the States to
their rights as equals in the' Union, if they
would do three things, first, abolish the Reb
el debt ; second, repeal their ordinances
of secession ; and third, accept, the
. amendment to the Constitution of the Uni
ted States abolishing Slavery henceforth and
forever. When that was done, the Union
was to be restored, and every man of you
who voted last year to sustain its part which
charges me with having deserted it, voted
upon every platform, and approved every
pledge I gave and every word I uttered.
Cheers. What did I tell you in the" month
of May at Auburn, when f saw the party
was getting into contest, and in the month
of Febuary in New-York City, at the Cooper
Institute 1 I told you precisely the same,
that these were oir conditions, and though
heaven and earth shall pass away, yet the
word of Andrew Johnson that the States
should be restored upon these, conditions,
having been pledged, should be fulfilled.
Cheers. Your members of Congress were
asked to vote for it. I tried to save that parr
ty from destruction. I showed them the
way ; it was plain and direct. I was going to
use the illsutration perhaps I ought not to
-of the traveler who got bewildered on his
journey and was shown two ' roads, one of
which led to his destination and the other
in the opposite direction,' and his decision
finally was that he had not good sense
enough to take either road ; and so it is with
Congress ; they take neither road. ' There
they are. Laughter and cheers. Where
are they ? They say we should adhere to
party. I have been a party-man. I haye
belonged to three or four parties,.and I have
been generally considered a very consistent
party-man, and the enemies of those parties
have generally thought me a tolerably effect
ive one. -J I was never accused ot instability,
I know, as a party-man, that the course of
wisdom is to follow the . head ot the party,
but there are a great many who differ from
me, and if they think that instead of follow
ing the nominated and chosen head of their
party the wa to make that party successful
is by following the tail. If they are such
fools they must take the consequences.
Cheers. I will not follow the tail of a par
ty, I am not such a fool. Who is the head
of their party in the State of New-York ? A
voice, Thad. Stevens. Laughter and cheers.
I ask who is their head in the State of New
York f A voice Horace Greeley. Renew
ed laughter and cheers. Very well, if I
mean to do a party any good I want to make
it successful. Now I invite them to put
their head man in nomination, and I do not
agree with you in your opinion of Mr. Gree
ley, by any means. Laughter and cheers.
I want them to nominate the man they in
tend to nominate for Governor of the
State of New-York to test their principles,
and in the election, now some six weeks
off, if he is not defeated by a majority
of 40,000, do not call me a prophet. L augh
ter and cheers. Must I desert my course, my
Government and my country to follow a par
ty divided, distracted, weak, imbecile, vacil
lating and absurd, seeking its own destruc
tion ? I have done a very different thing.
We set the railway train on the track, the
cars were all empty. It was under the guid
ance of the conductor, Andrew Johnson. All
the privileged seats were offered to this party
that complains of desertion. They were the
very first invited to enter; but no, they would
not enter, and now when they see that it is
fast filling up with outsiders and is passing
by them, they say they been deserted by the
conductor. Laughter and cheers. Now I
want to know who the leader of their -party
is in the United States. There is no party
that can exist, stand and live in the United
States that does not exist in every part of it
in a state of peace and not in revolutionary
condition, who is their leader? A voice,
"Thad. Stevens." No. they will not accept
him as their leader. They offer you no indi
vidual name. Their name is " The Congress
of the United States," and the Congress of
the United States is a force that exists until
the 4th of March next ; then their party is to
have no head whatever, because that Con
gress so constituted is gone, and the next lot
will in all probability be in direct opposition
to it, and I suppose in that event tbe party
will be gone, too. Laughter and applause.
That is the wisdom of their partisanship.
Why, fellow-citizens, I have known some
thing about what it costs to make a party
successful. I have known what it costs to
create a party in the United States of Amer
ica that shall take control of the Government
of the United States. Let me tell you that
you are seeing to-day the other and most un
pleasant experiment, that of a great party
that has controlled the destinies and powers
of the country, and saved it lying down and
destroying itself. That is what they propose j
to do. I propose to have no lot nor share in
that thing, not because it would be personal
ly unwise, but because the country requires
your services and mine upon higher princi
ples than the success or dnrability of any
party. Cheers. Fellow-citizens, in thus ad
dressing you I have yielded against my judg
ment to your wish to hear me. I think that
the President satisfied your ear, and that it
is your eye filled with the light of joy spring
ing from all j'our grateful emotions to the
Army and the Navy and their illustrious
representatives that is waiting to be gratified.
You want to see Gen. Grant Cheers and
Admiral Faragut Cheers and Gen. Custer
and the rest of them ; and you are the best
behaved people I have seen on the excursion,
for you have kindly and patiently listened to
me before seeingthem. Laughter and cheers.
If you are not satisfied with looking at them,
just ask Gen. Grant for a speech, and he will
give you an eloquent one. Cheers.
Resignation of Mr. Hamlin.
The Hon. Hannibal Il.iailin has tendered
to the President his resignation as Collector
of the Port of Boston. In doing this Mr.
Hamlin says :
" I do not fail to observe the movements
and efforts which have been and are now be
ing made to organize a party in the country,
consisting almost exclusively of those engag
ed in the late rebellion and their allies, who
sought by other means to cripple and em
barrass the Government. These classes of
persons, with a small fraction of others, con
stitute the organization. It proposes to de
feat and overthrow the Union Republican
party, and to restore to power, without suffi
cient guarantees for the future, and protect
ion to men who have been loyal, those who
sought to destroy the Government. I gave
all the influence I possessed to create and up
hold the Union Republican party during the
war, without the aid of which our Govern
ment would have been destroyed and the re
bellion a success. Wit h such a party as has
been inaugurated and for such purposes I
have no sympathy, nor can I acquiesce in its
measures by my silence. I therefore tender
to you my resignation of the office of Collec
tor of Customs for the District of Boston and
Charlestown, to take effect from the time
when a successor shall be appointed and
Speech from Mr. Fillmore.
The address of welcome to the President
at Buffalo, New York, was delivered by Hon.
Milliard Fillmore. The President responded
in appropriate terms. The following is Mr.
Fillmore's admirable address on the occasion :
Mb. President : The pleasing duty has
been assigned to me of welcoming you and
your distinguished Ministers and the gallant
officers of the army and navy accompanying
you, to the hospitalities of the City of Buffalo.
This duty is the more grateful to my feelings,
and the more honorable to you, Sir, as I am
authorized to speak in the name and on be
half of not only the city authorities, but also
of all our citizens, without distinction of
party or sect. All have cordially united in
this testimony of respect to the Chief Magis
trate of the nation. They know and appre
ciate your patriotic devotion to the Union
during the darkest days of the rebellion.
When Senators and Representatives in Con
gress threatened treason, and your own State
swung from her moorings under the Consti
tution, and drifted into the turbid stream of
secession, you stood like a rock in the midst
of the ocean against which the waves of re
bellion dashed in vain. Still standing erect
while the tempest howled and the waters
surged around you, you firmly resolved that
the Union should be maintained. Since the
war, new issues have arisen, of which it
would not be proper for me to speak on this
occasion ; but I think that I may venture to
assure you in the name of all that, however
we may differ as to the best mode of accom
plishing it, yet we are, with few exceptions,
anxious to see the Union restored under the
Constitution, and harmony and commercial
intercourse and fraternal love again uniting
the North and the South ; and thf sooner
this can be accomplished the better for the
country. Every intelligent man knows that
until this is done our credit cannot be estab
lished abroad and business to a certain ex
tent must be paralyzed at home. As matters
now stand, all is doubt and uncertainty, and
no man can safely predict what may happen
next month- or next year. Such a state of
uncertainty is a national calamity. Bat I
will not detain you longer. This vast mul
titude that stand before you are anxious to
hear the words of the man they have met to
honor, and not mine; and, therefore, with
sincere prayers that your journey may be a
pleasant and safe one, I repeat the cordial
welcome to our city, and regret that your
stay is necessarily so brief. Allow me the
honor to. present you to our citizens.

Chicago, Sept. 7th. The President con
cluded his remarks at the laying of the cor.

" I am present to show my high regard for a
man, who perished in public service, and one
whom I respected and loved. (Cheers.) I

done better than I could do it. Some men

who lived and toiled in the service of the

applause. Fellow-citizens I I believe in

In the evening session Hamilton protested
against the move by which border States
overslaughed Southern Unionists, and said
the minority report of the committee favor
ing negro suffrage should be presented to
morrow. The Convention has virtually split on the
nego suffrage question. The border States
delegation, after adopting the address and
resolutions this morning, desired to adjourn
sine die, but this was strongly opposed by
Southern men, and it was finally agreed that
the minority should make their report to
morrow, in favor of negro suffrage, and that
it be taken as a part of the regular proceed

border States will take no part in the Con

BECAUSE OF AFFLICTION AND AGE,
which renders me incapable of continuing busi
ness, I now retire from the Book trade, leaving
my entire stock and interest in the hands of
Messrs. Branson & Farrar, except the publication
of the " N. C. Almanac," which I trust will be
received with the same favor as heretofore.
In retiring, I return my sincere thanks for the
very liberal patronage which the public has
chosen to bestow upon me during the last half
century the length of time which I have been
engaged in this State and cheerfully recommend
to mv old friends and patrons, my successors,
Messrs. Branson A Farrar, by whom, I am sure
they will be satisfactorily accommodated.
Mr. H. D. Coley, so well known to the Book
trade and to the public, and so long engaged in
business with me, will be retained as an assistant
in the business of Messrs. Branson & Farrar. He
invites his old friends to call upon him.

and known as the North-Carolina Book Store.
This is by far the oldest and most popular book
