KEMIRSS OF OOIfr jOHjr SHEBMAJT,
delivered in Cincinnati, Sp- 28, 1 866.
I am about to state one or two facts
to show you how, much I was misled.
Judge Trumbull, chairman of the Ju
diciary Committee, framed this bill, and
the committee was composed of the
ablest and best lawyers of this country,
among them Judge Harris, of New
York. Judge Trumbull, himself a man
of great ability, reported without ob
jection the bill. Before the bill pass
ed the Senate, Judge Trumbull took it
to the President of the United States
and showed it to him, talked with him
about its provisions, and has recorded
his testimony of what occurred in that
interview. He pronounced it in a speech
in the Senate, saying the President had
approved and sanctioned that bill be
fore it was presented to the Senate.
After the difficulty about the Freed
men's Bureau bill, after the civil rights
bill had passed, I went to President
' Johnson myself under peculiar circum
stances. I had been invited by the
Union men of Connecticut to make a
speech in:their approaching canvass.
It was circulating all over the country
that Mr. Johnson was about to prove
false to his party and false to his coun
try, and that he was about to use the
vast patronage of his position to injure
the party that placed him in power. I
thought I would ask him if there was
to be such a conflict as that. He re
ceived me kindly, and we talked over
the whole matter two or three hours.
I will not undertake to say precisely
what was said by the President or by
myself in this conversation, but I say
to you, on my honor,that he left the im
pression on my mind as clear and as
strong as your faces now appear before
me ; that he would approve the civil
rights bill and sign it, further that if
any controversy sprung up between
him and the Congress he never would
appeal to the rebels and Copperheads to
come between us. Cheers. He ex
pressed his desire that I should go to
Connecticut, and I went in the full wish
there would be no further controversy
between the President and ourselves.
The only stipulation that the President
spoke of was this : he said he wanted
the radicals, as he called them, to aban
don negro suffrage and the doetrine of
. State suicide. If these were given up
bv that portion of the Union party, he
said he expected to approve the consti
tutional amendment to be reported by
the joint committee. That was the po
sition of Andrew Johnson then. I went
to Connecticut, and what was my sur
prise and mortfication when I returned,
a few days afterward, to receive from
the same President his veto against the
civil rights bill, and to learn that before
and at the time he held this conversa
tion with me was co-operating and com
bining with the - Copperheads in the
State of Connecticut for the defeat of
the Union candidate.
'The civil rights bill was vetoed, but
even then he did not give it up. John
son said he did not believe Congress
had the right to pass such a bill. We
waived that, or rather we passed it over
his head. What was the result ? That
civil rights bill is now a dead letter ;
the President of the United State re
fuses to enforce the Constitution of the
United States, which declares the law
making power shall rest with Congress ;
that we shall submit our bills to the
President, and if he disapproves them
he shall return them to Congress : a
vote shall immediately be taken, and if
they pass by a two-thirds majority they
become the law of the land. And what
is to be done ? A voice " Impeach
him." Cheers. What is the result ?
The white loyal people of the Southern
States are fleeing Northward ; the
whole rebel States are in the hands of
rebels ; the attitude of acquiescence to
which the Southern people assume, af
ter they were conquered in arms, has
been entirely laid aside, and the posi
tion of conquerors is assumed by them.
They are oppressing the blacks in
every form, and the law which your Con
gress, by a two-thirds vote, passed to
protect these loyal people, is regarded
as a dead letter, and is proclaimed by
President Johnson as null and void ;
that is the condition in which affairs
have been left by the unhappy difficul
ty ; but let that pass. Even this is not
so bad as something else I have to say
about President Johnson.
If Mr. Johnson had co-operated with
Congress in the settlement of these ques
tions by the constitutional amendment,
we would not have cared for the Freed
men's Bureau bill or the civil rights
bill, for the constitutional amendment
would have secured these objects. His
chief objection to the civil rights bill was
that we had not power to pass it. We
took him at his word, and proposed to
appeal to the people of the United
States to give Congress the power to
pass it. Cheers.J We did so, and
adopted the constitutional amendment
reported by the Committee on Recon
struction, as modified by the Senate ;
and I say to you that a more liberal,
conservative plan, in the true sense of
that word, was never submitted to a
conquered people in the world. Ap
plause. The South must come to terms. Now
my friends, this is the spectacle pre
sented between Congress and the Pres
ident of the United States. I do think
an impartial country will reason about
these matters, not as an idle thing
which does not affect them at all, but
like sober jurymen. It does seem that
the dispassionate judgment of the Amer
ican people will be that we have done
all for the South that wo ought to do,
and that they must now come to the
terms we propose to them. They say
that I am a Hunker, a Conservative,
and sometimes complain that I am a
little backward. So. I am, my friends ;
I do not deny it. I always" prefer to
gain that which can be gained to seek
that which is attainable. I believe
that tlie adoption of the constitutional
amendment was just, and right, and
liberal. If the people of the United
States would', by the requisite majority
adopt it, I was willing to stand upon it.
I am now. I offer it, as one of the Sen
ators of the State of Ohio, to the people
of the- Southern States. I say that by
their rebellion they have been deprived
of ail their government. I say that we
have a right to take a bond, from
them, for the future safety of this
country. I say that the amendment is.
just aud right and fair; accept it if you
will come in and be equal to us a
while man. in. the South equal to a wfcits
man in the IsToftbV ' We'wiil ask. noth
ing of you except the simple thing not
to elect a few men to office in a little
while, and in a short "time" I have -no
doubt that the requisite two-thirds of
Congress will relieve them of that.
We give them these terms, liberal, fair
terms, just. Now, if under all these
circumstances they should refuse to ac
cept them after a full and fair trial,
then, my friends, there are but two
courses. One is toilet these rebels
take that increased political power to
erovern our country again and make
laws for us, or to place the platform of
the Union party upon the doctrine of
universal suffrage. Tremendous ap
plause. My friends, I am not in the po
sition of the man who makes an offer
and won't give the other a fair chance.
I hope that every Northern State will
adopt the constitutional amendment.
New Jersey, the least, has taken the
lead. Let," then, the Southern States
contemplate for awhile the spectacle.
Let them look at this thing as we look
at it. Let them debate it among tnem
selves, the dominant controlling power
there. Let that offer stand as the last
offer by us, and the most liberal that
will ever be made. Let them under
stand that if they won't take that, the
same power that conquered them once
will impose terms upon them that they
won't like so well. Great applause.
I say to those North and South, of all
political parties, I never saw a man who
would take up these constitutional
amendment, and read them fairly, but
what said that it was a liberal and man
ly offer. It it is rejected if by the
treachery of the man whom we elected
to power the Southern people are final
ly led to reject that constitutional
amendment then let us place our su
perstructure on the rock of eternal truth,
where all the powers of hell shall not
shake it. Applause. They ask how
you will do it? I say we will tell them
how when the time comes. Great ap
plause. The day has not yet gone by ;
and I believe the solemn judgment and
determination of the American people
will be, that if there is no other way to
deal with this people, we will take the
most radical doctrine that the wildest
man in the country can think of and
adopt, great applause, rather than to
surrender again to the rebellious power
not only over our negro population, but
power over ourselves. We never will
let these unrepentant or unreconstruct
ed rebels vote three times the political
power to legislate for the brave soldiers
who have curried our flag all round the
coast. No, my friends, let the Union
party stand as it is, as heretofore, on
moderate, conservative grounds. Let
us only demand what is right. From
the beginning of this contest we have
been driven on. When we formed the
Republican party it was merely to pre
vent the extension of slavery over the
Western territory. Finally they drove
us to war. They took up arms against
U6, and we were compelled to abolish
the infernal institution which was the
pretext for the war.
Senator Sherman's statements in re
gard to the treachery of the President
produced profound sensation, and his
declaration as to the terms the South
would receive in the event of the rejec
tion of the constitutional amendment
caused the wildest enthusiasm. The
city to night is wild with excitement
five thousand " Boys in Blue" are
marching through the streets. The
work is done in Ohio, and the back
bone of the opposition broken. We
calculate on sixty-thousand majority.

The Trial of Mi. Davis Legal and other
Obstacles in the Way.
Washington, September 28. The various
speculative paragraphs puNished within the
past week with reference to the trial of Jef
ferson Davis are calculated to mislead rather
than enlighten the public mind. So fa; as
the President is concerned, Mr. Davis can be
tried without let or hindrance wheno ver
Judges Chase and Underwood, or either of
them, signify their readiness to take cha rge
of the prisoner.
From the highest authority I learn that
there is no conflict of opinion between the
attorneys as to the proper course to pursue.
All agree that whenever the court is re ady
to try Mr. Davis, he will be delivered at
once to the custody of the United States
marshal of Virginia, to whom a writ will be
issued at the proper time, directing that the
prisoner be brought before the court. T here
are but two obstacles in the way now to the
trial of Mr. Davis in October. The first is
found in a doubt among the lawyers, and in
this the judges are understood to pa rtici
pate, as to the legality of a trial in Oc tober
session, because it is not a regular tei m of
On account of this doubt it is proj osed
not to bring Mr. Davis to trial until tin . reg
ular term in November. So far as J udge
Chase is concerned, the same objections are
urged by him to presiding in the trial as
were mentioned by the Chief Justice last
Spring; viz: That he does not think it is
explicitly understood that martial la w is
abrogated in Virginia, and hence he ha s ad
vised the President to issue another pi ocla
mation making it clear that civil law is su
preme in that State.
Judge Chase himself interprets the late
peace proclamation as the President -does,
viz : That it abrogates martial law, be t on
account of the misinterpretations put upon
the proclamation by various military "com
mandants, the Chief Justice insists or.' an
other proclamation. The foregoing em bra
ces all we have of an authoritative chara.cter
with regard to the Davis trial. One of the
objections raised by the civil officers of the
United States Court to taking custody of
Mr. Davis, was that they had no safe place
to keep tlie prisoner.
To this the President responded that Mr.
Davis could be kept in Fortress Monroe, un
der the control ot the United States Mar
shal, with the aid of the military.

Relikf for Alabama. Governor Patton,
of Alabama, has represented to General 0
O. Howard, of the Freedmen's Bureau, thatt
the destitute of that State amounts to about.
seventy or eighty thousand, chiefly widows,
and orphans, and that the impoverished con
dition of Alabama renders it impossible for
her to afford adequate relief to so large a.
number. General Howard has submitted the;
whole matter to the Secretary of War, who
has. ordered that rations of corn and bacon
be issued to the people there who are suffer

SOUTH CAROLINA. .'...
Extra Session of the Legislature Important
legislation I'm irreedmen. ; . ; i
Colombia, S. C, Sept. 83, J 888.
The extra session of the Legislature of
South Carolina, called by the Governor to
meet on the 4th in6t., adjourned yesterday.
The most important measure adopted is the
act to declare the rights of persons heretofore
Known as slaves and as persons or color. It
is popularly called the Civil Rights Bill. It
is designed to so far " adapt the laws of this
state to those of the Gleneral (Government as
to put into operation the District Courts,
which arc to take cognizance ot cases mvol
ving the rights of the freedmen. It provides
that all persons heretofore known in law as
staves or iree persos ot color shall have tun
right to make and enforce contracts, to sue,
to be sued, to be affiants and give evidence,
to inherit, to purchase, lease, sell, bold, con
vey and assign real and personal property,
make wills and testaments, and to have lull
and equal benefit of the rights of personal
security, personal liberty, and private prop
erty, and of all remedies and proceedings for
tne entorcement and protection of the same,
as white persons now have, and shall not be
t-1 . V . ; ... . ..o . .. i:r . i
ment, pain or penalty for the commission of
any act or orlence, than such as are prescri
bed for white persons committing like acts
This act brings under the authority and
protection of law a class outside of the pale
of law since the close of the war. Much good
is expected from its operation ; and the peo
ple seem to regard it as in an eminent degree
both fit and timely, for disorder and violence
were "far too common throughout the State.
The operation of these District Courts, (there
are no counties in South Carolina,) it is
hoped, by consistent and firm administration
of equal justice, will go fir to re-establish or
der and suppress irregularities. Such at least
seems to be the honest hope of the people
who are earnest in their desire to suppress
these irregularietis and to aid the Govern
ment in its re-establishment of Iawapd order.
Another act looks in the same direction
the establishment of a State Penitentiary.
An appropriation of twenty thousand dol
lars was passed, as a nucleus upon which to
commence operations, and to enable the
State to set at work its convicts now in the
prisons, together with such other labor as it
may be able to command ; these to be em
ployed first in building the Penitentiary. A
Commission has been appointed which is
charged with the duties of selecting a site
and negotiating its purchase. The work will
be commenced as soon as a site is chosen.
No choice has yet been made, but it is con
sidered probable that it will be located in or
very near Columbia. A fine site would be
upon the canal along the river, just upon the
corporate limits of the city.
To meet the financial difficulties of the
State, this Legislature has not done a great
deal. It has passed a bill, of which the ef
fect is to postpone the civil docket of the
courts from the Autumnal session in Octo
ber to the Spring session in March, the crim
inal docket being the only business before
the Courts at their session now about open
ing. This is regarded as an unfortunate meas
ure, iu that the relief it affords the debtor is
only of a few months, and at a season of the
year when his farm will yield him no money
to meet the liabilities that must come down
upon him next Spring.
It is generally understood that the Gover
nor is but partially satisfied with the results
of this extra session, from which so much
The general failure of the corn crop and
the partial failure of the cotton, has cast a

Negroes continue to emigrate, mostly
going westward. An agent for labor took
with him from Greenville, of this, State, to
Florida, a squad of forty or fifty, two weeks
ago. This agent proposes to continue going
from that point with emigrant freedmen once
a month, or as often as he can get a sufficient
number to move with. A good deal of in
terest is kept up there among the negroes,
and hundreds talk ot going as soon as their
crops are all housed or sold. Higher wages
are offered them in Florida, and in the West
also, than can be paid by the planters in our
mountain districts. Fifteen dollars a month
is the offer that carries off so many from
Greenville. There are comparatively few
negroes in those upper districts, and there is
very limited demand for that kind of labor
