and tho virtue nearest allied to the great
source of omniscient Wisdom ahd lustico.
This resolution adopted in tho first year of
President Lincoln's administration, shaped
ins policy and was the guiuo or his public
life. All his act. had reference to it; under
it ho declared that to save the Union (that
is, to preserve the States) was the first and
great dutv. To this evcnrthini! was made
subservient. If It could be dono by protect

If it could best bo dono by destroying sla

record that this policy received tho unani

Ills address to tho people of Washington
on the 13th of April. 18C5. the last nubile
act of his life, was the most studied, compre
hensive, and perfect of the many papers
which he has left for the instruction of pos
terity. It recapitulated all tho principles
laid down in tho resolution, and gate to it a
practical and tangible form The system was
perfect in all its parts, and complete in all
its details. Tho time for practical applica
tion had come, and that application was
about to be made by him, when the hand of
the assassin deprived tho nation of its head,
the Constitution of its wisest defender, and
tho Stato governments of their truest friend.

States proscribed, or new ones brought into
existence, tho policy of the old Administra
tion was to be continued, or a new policy
adopted, andMo all remember how the na
tion held its breath while theso questions
were under advisement.
At length the decree came forth that tho
policy of Abraham Lincoln was to be con
tinned, that tho resolution of July 23, 18C1,
which had fonned the platform of the war,
was also to be the platform of peace ; and

That tho matured plans of President Lincoln,

people, is my firm belief and earnest hope
Bines the opening of tho session of Con
gress many new theories of reconstruc
tion have been put forward. For tho
past four years the Ingenuity of the
legal profession ha employed Itself in
demonstrating that tho Union of the States
is Indissoluble; that the Constitution has
conferred no power either Oh the Supreme
Court, on Congress, oh tn several States, or
on tne pcopio or trie States to break tho
bonds of its authority and release the people
from their allegiance. We had supposed
this to bo a political attorn. After four
years of bitter ttrlfo we had hoped that tho
bond of our Union, after it had been bathed
In tho blood of a half million of patriots,
would nover again bo called ih qtiwltbn.
But, Mr. Chairman, in this wo aVo mistaken.
The argument ttr the gifted and eloquent
gcnllemah from Ohio, Sir. Shellabarger, dc
Ilrered In this Hall on tho 8th of January,
goes to prove that there is a ipower Within
tho- GoTernmcnt which can destroy it, and
that .that power has been successfullycxerted.
He has labored to provo that a noble Union
of thirty-six States has been shattered In
pieces, and that eleven of those States,
broken and dismembered, aro now drifting
on thp. billows of revolution like tho hulks
of a fleet disabled and scattered by tho storm.
And, sir, by what train of argument has ho
reached a conclusion so opposed to the na
tional Instinct and Ihtt convictions of the
He has soarched the law of nations to find
tho definition of a State, m It lives in the
family of nations an independent soverelgn-ty,co-equal,

sir, has applied that definition to the State's

Now, sir, tho Constitution gives no defini
tion of treason as applied to a State. It Is
tho treason of tho individual which tho Con
stitution defines anil Tor which it prescribes a
punishhient. This, sir, is both the letter and
the spirit of the instrument. In neither a
paragraph or a line of that instrument is
there any allusion to the expulsion or punish
ment of a State. The person or individual
Is alono referred to, and tho State, as sUcb, is
in nowise held responsible The Uo eminent
has retained in its own hand the povcrand
right to punish treason. Having dono this,
would it do just to hold a State responsible
Vrhcn its citizens commit treason? Can Con

Now, sir, what does this article of the Con
stitution guaranty ? A republican form of
government. To whom does It guaranty it?
To every Stato in this Union. Does it
guaranty it to States out of tho Union?
Certainly not. This power, therefore, can
only be exercised by Congress over States in
the Union, and not over States out of it. In
fact, sir, tho Constitution never contemplated
the case of a Stato going out, or being out,
of the Union. Gentlemen on this Door havo
labored, with milch astuteness and learning,
to show how a State may go out of the Union,
and that, under their way, eleven of the
States hat e actually gono out.
I beg leate to remind those gentlemen,
with great respect, that although the modo is
somewhat novel, the principle Itself is not
new. It Is tho samo princlpio which first ap
peared in tho celebrated resolutions of I'M,
which was revived under the name of nullibV
cation by John C. Calhoun in 1830, and cul
minated in secession in 1661. It lytlio same
t icious principle which has scducid tho hearts
of a portion of our people from their alle
giance, to government, which has trampled on
our flag, which has bathed our land in blood
and filled our homes with mourning. I had
hoped, sir, that four years of war, and such a
war, had wiped out forever from the public
mind ei ery thought of nullification, secession,
and disunion, and that wo had emerged from
tho bloodtlcontest with but cUto natural
pulsation, that the States "are ono and in
separable, now and forever."
The gentleman from Ohio has been at
great pams to show that tho Government
has a rightto treatevery individual of aStatc
lion as a public enemy;
guilty of treason and
ishlp, while the Const!-
tnat nas been in re oeuion as a
that is. adludiro him
dcDrivo him of citizens'
tution expressly provides that no person
shall be convicted of treason unless on the
testimony of two witnesses to the same overt
act. or on confession in open court."
What, Mr. Chairman, would be the practi
cal operation or this new doctrine or ton
structive treason: of detlarlnir that whenever
by fraud or violence a State government

allegiance of every citizen from the national
to tno State government, and effectually de
stroy our entire system ? When the itorms
of tumult and civil discord should rage, would
Iho affrighted citizen fly to the flag of hi
country only to be told that his State liad
rebelled and that he himielf wal a traitor ?
What herved tho arms and Inspired the
hearts of so many true patriots In the South
during the recent struggle ? It was the con
viction that citizenship could only be lost by
inmviuuai acts anu not lorieuca oy toe acts
of others. It was the conviction that the air
they breathed was the atmosphere of the
whole nation, and that when the storm had
passed It would again be pure, invigorating,

Tho doctrinojof tho gentleman from Ohio
treats theso men as public enemies, and
deems them to havo forfeited their political
rights. And indeed, sir, his doctrine has re
ceived somo sanction from tho action of the
House Itselr. The time, however, must
come, and that soon, when we shall bo
brought fate to fafcb bh all these great ques
tions. We must decide whether those who
were members of Congress during the most
critical period of the rebellion, (including the
President himself.! who went home ind en
countered all its furies, and ha,o come hack
ith certificates of election, arc to bo ad
mitted, or are to be shot down, as rebels, at
the door of tho Capitol, not by the bullets of

cent the civil surrender of the people. Tho
session of Congress had Just terminated, and
they would not reassemble until December.
The Cabinet, the legal ndvigcrs of Mr. Lin-
coin, were at tncir post, and tne I'rcildent
solicited their counsel and aid. All that
Congress had asked, as conditions precedent
to reconstruction. Was tho adohtloh of I lie
constitutional amendments which they had
passed. I tlunk it llllist be ailrallted that
after these had been accepted, in good faith,
no subsequent conditions could justly be im
posed. The, President, hokever, acting in
the trtlo spirit that had governed Ins prede
cessors, went eten beyond what he or Con-
conditions which Cohgress had prescribed
tho utter repudiation of the confederate debt
in ail its forms, and a full guarantee to the
African race of entire equality v, ilh the, whites

Arc there not, Mr. Chairman, stronc mo-
thes arising out of our foreign rclutlons that
should urgo us to harmony, fraternity, and
union? Without theso we can ncter ho

had tho echo of tho first gun fired at humler
reached the British isle, than the old lion
shook tho dew-drops from his mane and be
gan to growl. During tho entire struggle,
a rumbling sound ran tnrougu me entire
British empire, indicating a wish to strike us
if the happyraoment should arrive. Priva
tcerB were fitted out under tho very eye of
the Government to prey upon our commerce,
insulting paragraphs appeared in all their
public. Journals, protection and sjmpathy
were extended to rebels by public meetings
and on all public occasions, and we wcro in

great strength and tho bravery of our troopH

who went witn us, sine by side, tnrougu tne

that the reirulation of the electivA franr-ruiA
in all the States, and the qualifications of
electors ociong to ine stales each lor itself,
and are subjects in which Congress, under
me uonsutution, nas no right to interfere;
the policy of the President on this, as well as
on many other subjects, was to preserve the
Government as he found it, and not to make
a new one, Iho Conitltution of the United
States having referred the matter of suffrage
to the States, and Invested them with tho ex
clusive power over it, and it was not coni-S-tent
for tho President to interfere with a pre
rogative so expressly conferred upon them,
and so long exercised by them.
I ttill not. Mr. Chairman, pursue this sub
ject further. I rejoice in the great good

hope wo may reap all its legitimate fruits. I
hopo it will make us a great and united peo
ple, Viith one language, one heart, one des
tiny. I rejoice, sir, that the African race has
risen to the condition of freedom In the
dispensations of Providence, the nation laid
its hands on the boned captnes and they
sprang to the dignity of freedom. It touched
their sightless eyes and they opened to the
morning light of perpetual liberty. At the
beginning of the contest they appeared to be
the orphans of Providence! at its rlnsn lhf-v
were tho wards of the Republic. Under
Providence, tho guiding legislation of Con
gress, and the wisdom and justice of those
tncy iivo among, mcy aro now to go forward
to their final destiny. Storting as men, with
Kericci cqaiity ucioro tne law, they will soon
ecoine an important part of the body poli
tic. Time will wear awav preiudice. and soon
reconcile all parties to the new condition of
Mr. Chairman. I am hopeful of the futtiro.
The Constitution, as it stands, is the bond of
perfect unioh ahd the guarantee of Innumer
able blessings to this people. Under It v,c

it seems to mo to emoracc witmn us amnio

tho grave question beforo us, ve shall keep
within the bounds of this great charter of
our liberties, and that no consideration of

was chosen ihainnan, and, upon coming for

great enthusiasm :
Mr. Stewart, on reconstruction, said that
the last Congress had adjourned without
adopting any plan, leaving tne 1 resident to
adopt one or his own. lie did soa plan
just and generons to the South, based "on
tne great centraridca oi loyalty" loyaityto
the Constitution and the union. None hut
loyal men, he said, could be allowed to hold
office, or participate in the Government. He
f 'resumed Congress would admit none but
oval men. This plan was sanctioned br his
enlightened Cabinet; it worked hko charm;
it gave tho President immediatcand absolute
control of the Southern people. He issued
his edicts; they were obejea. He required
them to repeal their ordinances of secession ;
thev did it. He required them to ratify the
abolition of slavery: to abolish It in tin ir
State constitutions ; to repudiate their rebel
8,ate debts; to give tho frccdmenthcirrlghts.
"owever uistasteiui, tncy urn it. Aided by
his Immense patronage, and cxactimr loraltv
as the only condition of Executive favor, the
President was fast building up a loyal Union
party in mo nfutn, strong enough to keep
down the cut-throats and fire-eaters without
the expensive aid of a standing army or
Freedraen's Bureau. "

out all the Southern States and people, loyal
and dislojal, alike thus virtually corning
out the object of secession itself. Without
debate they promptly called the aj es and
noes, compelling the Republican party to
vote with (Vietoi or With the Democrat; thus
forcing tho oartv into a false nosilion. from
which they must in some way escape, or the
party and the country be ruined. These
Northern fanatics, with the Democrats, are
now making icinf efforts the one to Aiot
and the. other to coax tho President out of
the Republican party. They will fail. But
suppose they succeed? What would be the
condition of the country? Thus hostilo and
exasperated. Congress would reject all meas
ures of the President and ho would veto all
theirs. Thns the legislation of tho Govern
ment woflld be brought to a dead lock, and
of course Congress had better adjonrn and go
home, and then what? Then should tho con
troversy continue, the Republicans could not
of course unite with men who would divide
the party, and of course would select others
uncommitted, dividing the country, perhaps.
