beeaus.' we cannot doubt, if its proceed
ings are conducted with becoming and
good judgement, that it w ill lead to
1 1 1 . -1 important re-ults. It may bo
truly said that no body of men have
met on this continent to consider
events so important, since the year lTTii
Applause. The year when our an-
ee'tors la-i-elnbh d in this citV to .h.Tl.i
a better government for the States
which composed the old confederation
a government which has been con
firmed and made more enduring, as.we
trust, by the fearful trials nnd perils
whi.-h is has encountered and over-
sc. The Constitution
winch they came here to Iramo wo nro
here to vindicate and restore. Ap
plause. Wo are hero to assert the
siiorcmacy of representative govern--;
-wo, all whoarowithin the confines
ifl'iO t'nion, aidause, a' govcrn
:e. , it which cannot, wit bout a iolalion
r its; f undamental principles, be exten
ded over any but those who are repre
sented in it. Applause. Over thexo
who, by virtue of that representation,
are entitled to n voice in tho adminis
tration wf public affairs. Applause.
It. was such a government that our
fal-heis framed and put in operation.
It is such ft government which we are
bound by every principle of fidelity,
und jn.-'l ice, and good faith, to defend
and maintain. Applause. Centlo
nu:i,we are notnowliving undjrstieh
(rovernnient. Applause Thirty
six Stales have for months been gov
erned by twenty-live States. Applause
Llcven States have been wholly with
out representation in tho Legislative
bodies of tho Nation. The numerical
population of the represented and un
represented Mates tuts just neon ciirmg
ed by the admission of tho delegation
from TcniH's- ee. A unit taken from
the smaller has been put to the larger
number, but ten Siatesare still denied
jeprer.cntation in Congress, to which
tliCy are entitled under the Constitution.
The President, not in pursuance of any
const il ul iomd power, had calle d on the
Confederate Siaten t. accept conditions
for their udmi-sioit lo tho exercise;
their k";-ilimal.e functions u-i. Members
of the Union. Tho ratification of the
nmendmcntto the Constitution abolish
ing slavery nnd the repudiation
debts contracted to overthrow the! !ov
crnnicnt, "Vero those condii ioiu. They
were met nnd accepted. The exaction
of new conditions is unjust and a viola
tion of tho faith of tho (iovornmcnt,
subversive of tho purpose i oi' oar pol
itical system and dangerous to the
public prosperity and ).e:u. Ap
plause. Kach House of Congress may
us tho judge of the qualification of its
own members, reject individuals for
just cause, but tho two bodies acting
conjointly cannot exclude an entire
delegation without nn 'unwarrantable
assumption of power. Applause,
Congress has not only done this, but
has gone further. It'has incorporated
new conditions with amendments
the Constitution, and submitted them
for tho ratification of the States. There
is no probability that these amend
ments will bo ratified by three-foiu ths
of tho States of this Union. Applause
To insist on the conditionsthey contain
is to prolong liuieiinueiy too exclusion
of more than one-fourth of tho States
from their riuht to bo represented
the legislative bodies. They had
right under tho constit ution : they bad I
a rioht under the resolutions p:e erl in
boll i Houses of Congl ess in IMil. Ap
phiiise. These resolutions wero not
concurrent, but they were Substantially
identical. Moreover they wei'cf ntitlod
to bo represented on other grounds of
fairness ami good faith. It is in this
wrong which we havo come to protest
against, and as far ns in us lien redress
When tho President of tho United
Stales declared that armed resistance)
'o the authority of tho Union was over,
all the Slates bad a right to represen
tation in Congress. Applanse. Is
this the government our fathers fought
to establish? Loud cries of "no." Is
this the government wo have been
fighting to preserve? "No, no."
The President has done all in his pow
er to correct this wrong. Ho has dono
all in hi-, p aver to restore tho rights of
States in the Uegislaturo of tho coun
try, by giving to each flection its full
statu'. Lcgi'la'ion, without represen
tation, is an anomaly in .our political
system, and v.ndcr any ot' er form of
(iovernn-ciit it would bo but .mother
name for usurpation am! misrule.
(i( nt lemon, I trust that in your de
liberations here we shall confine our
s. Ivis tonne main purpose, that, of ro
drc?ing loo w rong to which I havo re
ferred. Ther" is much in the adminis

There are commercial nnd linalieia

bo our first and our,
so. J J HIS fcllOUl.l
, immediate aim.
It is in tlie Congressional districts
that the vital conte-t is to take place.
Tho control of one body will enable us
lo prevent pM-'ial, unjust and perni
cious legislation. Tho control of both
lloii.-es with the power to introduce
and carry out salutary reform ; to bring
the (invernnieiit back, in the language
nf Johnson, in the 'Republican track,
will come bicr. Applause By wise,
harmonious and judicious action on our
part and the part of tho. e v.e represent,
tfifit period need not long ho delayed.
1 believe that public opinion is ripe,
ami that it is only necessary to pre.'cnt
to tho people clearly the i.".sr,ts he
iween ns and tho other party 'which
con! rols the action of Congress. And.
gentlemen, is not tho object for which
we nro contending a consummation
worthy of our highest and our most de
voted cll'orts. Applause To bring
back the republic, pari lied and r-tremrth-
cned by the fiery ordeal through w hich
it has passed, toils ancient prosperity
and power, to present to the world an
example worthy of imitation. No Uto
pian vision of good government, but
tho grand, old, real idea of better times,
bringing tip tho memory of our fath
ers and the recollection of tho past,
and with tho p.'ist nnd the fut tiro insep
arably intertw ine I, one country, one
flag, one Union of equal Slates. Long
General Dix then announced that
the proceedings would bo opened with
prayer, and the Rev. J. N. McDonald
made tlie prayer, in which thanks wcro
rendered to God for Iho blessings
which the nation enjoyed, more par
ticularly in having been preserved in
the late troubles and also for tho as
semblage of this Convention to commit
for the public good. Ho prayed that
tho members might take tutton as
brothers, and as friends might
lay aside all selfish motives and all un
worthy personal and see tional consid
erations, so that tho union of theso
Slates may bo fully restored and bo
perpetual. A loud Amen from dele
gates. He prayed that God might
manliest his fjieeial favor on the Pres
ident of tho 1 nited States nnd ir.ako
him a great and lasting blessing to tho
country. Another "oud Amen. And
ho prayed for tho maintenance of tho
Union inviolato under tho Constitu
tion adopted by cfur fathers.
