PLAIN TALK. Speech of General Blair after
his Election to the U. States
In the joint convention of the
Missouri Legislature, oa Wednes
day of last week, after the election
of General Blair to the TJ. States
Senate, he wad) invited to address
the joint convention. This extract
is from bis speech on the occasion :
"il och was said in the debate pre
vious te.he election, of a letter ad-
dresalty me to a distinguished
eitiaen of this State, in 1868. I de
sire, now that this election has been
consummated, te speak a few words
in explanation and by way of allay
ing the apprehensions expressed by
some gentlemen upon this floor.-
That letter and its language is to be
interpreted by the circumstances
attending its writing. At that time
tho reconstruction aoU, so-called,
somo of thorn Lad been passed and
were in procoes of execution, they
were laws of Congress. The prin
ciples upon which these acts hing
ed had been declared unconstitu
tional by the Supreme Court of the
United btates. The acts by wbKh
largo numbers of lbs people of the
South had. been deprived ol the
suffrage was deelared unconstitu
tional in a celebrated case which
went np from Ibis State that of
Cammings against the State of Mis
soun. It was there in that deci
sion of the Supreme Court declared
to be ex post facto and an attainder,
and for that reason unconstitution
al. The other principle which sup
ported these acts, and upon which
they rested their . vitality, was the
power conferred upon toe military
arm to try and to oxecnte the pris
oners who bad been oondemnod by
a military commission, in time of
pence in at was declared unconsti
tutional by the supreme uourt ot
of the United States in the JUilligan
and Bowles. Previous to tho time
that this letter was written there
waa under consideration, by the
Supreme Court, the licArdle case,
a case arising under tne reconatruc
tion acts, where a civilian had been
arrested and tried by tho military
commission of - Vicksburg. This
case was taken tip by habeas corpus
to the Supreme Court of the united
Sutes, and the Judges unanimously.
subsequent to the writing of the let
ter spoken of, declared that such
conviction was unconstitutional.-
Subsequent to this there was the
casecf Yerger for the rnarderof
Colonel Crane. He was tried be
fore a military commission in Joek
sou. Mississippi, convicted and con'
demnod to die. His body was tak
en by habeas corpus from the mtlita
ry authorities and their decision
tho death warrant was set aside,
and the case was turned over to the
authorities of the State of Misaiseip
pi, to be dealt with according - to
the law and the Constitution ot the
United States. I held in this let
ter that those laws being unconsti
tutional, and so declared by the Su
preme Court of tho United States,
that the President could not with
out a violation of bis. oath execute
those lawB , and tbat if 1 bad been
placed in that ' position I never
would have executed any unconsti
tutional Inw so declared by the
Supreme Court of the United States.
It would have been .perjury upon
his part to have done it ; it would
have been a violution of bis oath of
ofSce to maintain the Constitution.
It was bis sworn duty to sot aside
these acts, vaunted by gentlemen
upon thin floor as being acts of Con
gress ; it would have been no usurpation.-
After the dotuion of the
Supreme Coail he could have bid
no other alternative. But thete re
construction fcctn bare been put in
to execution. The Psesident of the
United States, who is now in the
Executive chair, is not called on to
execute them or to set them aside
either, because their execution has
boon completed. But I say again,
as I said in my place ujon this
floor, that the use of the military
arm calling soldiers from every
quarter of the country to wherever
may be an election about to be held
whether it be in the city of New
York or the city of New Orleans,
or in Texas or Alabama, or Geor
gia, or South Carolina wherever
these elections recur you may well
predict that there the troops of the
United will be carried to maintain
in power persons placed there nn
der unconstitutional use of the mil
itary force of the country.
And I say now, as I said in my
seat npon this floor before I receiv
ed the votes of the honorable gen
tlemen who have made me their
Senator I say now tbat I will nev
er give my assent as long aa 1 am a
Senator of yours, or in any posi
tion in life in which I may be I
will never give my assent to the
use ot the military arm to overawe
the orderly and well behaved peo
ple of this country in their elec
tions. -1 thought it was due to you
that I should make this brief ex
planation of. that . which sepned to
bo the cause of some alarm among
those wko opposed my election
who denounced that letter as revo
lutionary. ' The reconstruction acts
were revolutionary. The recon
struction acts subverted the consti
tution, and as lhave predicted, and
ua mm.y older and wiser men thau
myself have predicted, the use of
military force, covered over with
the pretext that the people of the
South were still in rebellion that
the use of military force which bad
been employed no successfully to
maintain the Radicals in power in
the Southern States, would, under
that prooodetit, be carried else
where in our country, and if my li
beral friends were so ' much horri
5ed, and justly so, at the improper
interference npon the part of the
Executive cf the Government of the
United States in tho elections in
Missouri if they wero indignant
that be should write that letter ad
vising bis friends to take a certain
course, and ue his power by de
priving certain officials of office in
this State if that was calculated to
call forth the -indignation of every
right minded man in the State of
Missouri, I ask you what was the
justification, how much greater the
outrage of carrying to the city of
rsw lork and lo the citr of I'mla-
elphia armed troops to overawe
e people in their elections last
November ? Is there any compar.
ison in the : outrage 7 Was inert
any justification for it ?.. It was an
act to enforce the 15th Amendment.
There had been an election in the
State ot New York at which the ne
groes had eoted without molesta
tion. There wss no suggestion from
any quarter that tin-re would be
obstruction placed in the way, and
yet we know that tbe President ot
the United States, at an immense
expense to tbe cotry fjrd led the
eity of New- York-with - gunboats

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
DRUNKENNESS IN A HIGH PLACE.
There are details in some of tbe
papers of the country of a disgrace
tul drunken scene, wuicn was wit
nessed in the House of Representa
tive shortly before the holidays.
The facts, as reported, are true ;
and the writer - was informed of
them by a member of the House at
tbe time of the occurrence -, uow
a debauched victim of alcohol por
sisted in demandtng that he should
be beard in a speech at the time a
vote by yeas and ; nays . was being
taken, and bow be was soveral
times called to order by the Speak
er. But crazed with whisky, the
victim heeded not, until persuaded
by bis friends to retire to theIoak
room. XJutne cnone nowio remain
tberr, and returning to tb floor of
the House be bawlod out "aye, af
ter the rotmg had closed, and the
result had born announced by the
Speaker. It is well that such scenes
are now so very rare, temperance
men boing largely in the majority
in both Houses. -The
papers of this city and clso'
where, huvo also given accuunts of
a wife beatinz spree, while in a
drunken fit, of this same so-called
Honorable member of the House.
This is said to - bave come on in a
room of one of the hotels. ' The
boisterous and vulgar talk of tbe
Honorable member aroused other
inmates ot tho hotel, who, on ap
proaching the door of the room
whence the noise - came, were con
vinced, by the cries ef a woman
that tho drunkard was abusing his
1 Irstoad ot bursting opcrr the door
and protecting the woman, (who
had been the wife of her abuser lor
only a few months,) those present
attracted attention by rapping, and
then warned the wretch that if he
did hot cease his cruelty he would
bo put into the hands of the polico.
This ppeoimott f -dutelrnn hnmanu
ty was thus, it is said, called to or
der two or three times before mor-
nintr. by those stationed near tbe
door for that purpose.- The loud
shrieks of the wife, who is a lady of
refinement, intelligence, and high
standing, could be heard, it rs said,
in adjoining rooms of the hotel.
Next morning the proprietor ol
tho house ordered the drunkard to
leavo, and invited the wife tore
main. But she, hoping, doubtless,
in tho futuro reformation of the
man, clung to him, and they lot'i
the city . together for thoir borne,
the wit'o, it is said, having a bruis
ed and blackened face. This hon
orable member has returned since
the holidays, and has been in Lis
scat in the House iu a sober condi
tion. Tho constituents of this man
bave re-elected him to a Beat in the
Houso for tho Forty-second Con
gress. It is a disgrace to them that
they havo done so. Tho presence
of such a man in the House is a dis
grace to tbe nation. It is high time
the voters, especially Christian vo
ters, were fully alive to the evil of
canting their ballots in favor of a
drunkard to represent them in the
legislative balls of the nation.
It was the proprietor of tbe ho
tel who called on his drunken guet
to cease his barbarity. Like other
hotel proprietors, he keeps a space
in his houso for the display of very
choice wines and : liquors, for retail
over his bar. Doubtless the Hon
orable drunken wife beater regaled
himself at this bar, with a glass of
his host s best liquor, before seek
ing the company ot his wiie in her
apartment. But whether be got
his alcohol there or not, tbat hotel
proprietor should ' bave ' hidden bis
face for very shame ; for, doubtleEP,
many other wires bave received
cruel treatment" 'av- the hands of
men who have been crazed by alco
hol quaffed in his gilded den, where
he temptingly diBpioys that which
he knows to be an instrument of
destruction. J To sell liquors over a
fine bar iu. a first-class hotel, is a
first-class wsy of serving Satun, by
making low and high-classed drun
kards,, who in turn farther serve the
devil by brutally treating wives
and children. , ; .. . :. . :, , ,
' In deep contrast with recent ac
tions of a member of thellouse, are
the efforts of many members of
both Houses of Congress, who nre
endeavoring iy example and pre
cept to aid the cause of temperance.
Its thought there navei- waa a time
when the two Houses contained so
largo a number of members devot
ed to temperance principles. On
last Sabbath aftercoon there was
held here a '-religious temperance
mooting." Senators Wilson aud
Buckingham, General Howard and
others, addressed tbe meeting ; and
the exorcises were interspersed
with singing and prayer. Senator
Wilson said the object of the gath
ering was to enlist, the churches
and Christian men and women of
this city mure than heretofore in
the work of temperance. He tho't
every cbarch should be a temper
ance church, and . every individual
member should be an acknowledg
ed, activo advocate of the temper
ance principle He be'.iorca that
were this tbe case, the temples of
God would be crowded by those as
king "what they shall do to be
eavedr T- f' ' :T f-
"A Rer.JMr. Brayton,' a returned
missionary from Burmah,, arose in
the audience and said : "Sir, from
a remark made by yon in opening,
I infer that there are .churches in
those United States that are not
temperance churches, and there are
members of churches who are not
temperance men. - can only say.
shame on such churches and such
men. I have been absent from my
native land more than twfnty-uve
years, aud in that land oL idolaters
are churches representing 20,000
members, every one of whom Is a
total abvmence man or woman. A
member would be disciplined for
tippling as soon as for idolatry."
The cause of temperance needs
greater support than it now revives
from churches, and from Christian
individuality. Too many temper
ance people are wasting much time
and energy towards tho spreading
of temperance principles while hid
den behind closely curtained wind
ows, ante-rooms and wicket gales
in lofty halls, where the unnecessa
ry flummeries atlonding secret
temperance organisations aro per
formed, Thcro are no objections
to the temperance principles incul
cated in thee associations, but why
should so mu':h time be wasted ov
er the machinery of secresy, when
drunkards aro s rapidly going
headlong to rn:n on all hands.
They are daily sent forth from li
quor dens without the unnecessary
formality of secret performances
Stealing in Congress.
The telegraph the other day-made
a sad revelation of the honesty of
Congress. We are told that the
Houpe Representatives is substant
ially at a dead-lock in the transac
tion of business, by ret son of the
threatening attitude assumed by the
land-jobbers. The Radical majori
ty dare not take np the most neces
sary bills for fear that a powerful
and corrupt ring will log-roll their
precious BcTSehrcB through 1 Forty,
seven important Senate bills are ly
ing on the table awaiting action,
but, interspersed among tbom on
the calendar, are twenty-three
swindling land bills which It is
feared will be passed by a combina
tion of corrupt members, whose
sense of accountability is entirely
lost in the iact that they were not
. Another point : The corrnption
ists are gathering tn force about tbe
Senate, and combining to pass thro'
that body a magnificent system of
steeling and plunder, in tbe shape
of bills to subsidize steamship lines,
and to put in operation a mammoth
ship-yard, with rolling mills, foun
dries, etc , for the purpose of "re
viving onr foreign commerce" by
constructing iron steam chips.
There aro probably a dozen of these
projects, and by ' lumping" thorn
"you vote for my plunder and 1 w ill
votrf for yours" it is expected tbey
wU-a& go-through, tho Senate anu
tho House. '
: Congress devotes Itsolf with in
dustry to two. great pusuits. The
main one is to gratify hatred and
fear of the Southoru S'.atee ; this
with a view to the contingencies ol
1872. Tbe other, in plain words, is
stealing, and it is carried cn in ev
ery shape under which legislative
larceny, petty and grand, can be
accomplished. From a San Domin
go job to a diminutive land grab,
stealing is the grand aim and ob
ject. . .
The hundred and odd carpet
baggers and ' scullawsgs from the
Southern States constitute tbe main
roliacco of tho lobby. Tbeso fel
lows are all on tbe make. They
havo no constituents, unless in some
instances thoy find the ignorant
blacks, as in tbe Wbillemore and
'J'ennesse Butler cases, to believe in
them." They know well enough
they will never be tolerated at tho
North in any official position, when
they return . fiom their raid with
well filled trunks instead of the
empty carpet-bag they took with
them South. Consequently they
are busy making hay while tbey
enjoy the sunshine of political fav
or and power. -
All accounts agree that Wash
ington has never been so corrupt
in or out of Congress as - it is to
day. ' In the most reckless days of
the war, when millions were wast
ed away on contracting favorites,
there naa r.o such evidenee as bow
exists of premeditated and whole
While this is going on, and to
withdraw tho attention of the Nor
thern peoplo, the conspirators are

It is ua, electioneering trick in two
senses. In tbe first place, it will
be used in the full elections W fire

serve the good purpose of keeping
down the discontent of .the faithful

Personal Appearance of the
: Wo reproduce, for the benefit of
those who- may remember to hare
met with it in the family newspa
pers many years ago, this most cu
rious, if not unquestionably authen
tic, description of tbe appearance
and manners of our Savious while
on earth : '
A description of the person of Jesus
Christ, as it icas found in an an
cient manuscript sent by Publius
Jjentulus, President of Judea, to th
Senate of Rome.
. There lives atr time in Judea, a
man of singular character, whose
name is Jesus Chris. Iho barbar
ians esteem him a prophet, but bis
followers adore him, as the immed
iate offspring of the immortal God.
He is endowed with such unparal
leled virtue as to call back the dead
from their graves, and to heal eve
ry kiud of disease with a word or
touch. His person is tall and ele-
grnntly ehnpel Lis eir-ect amiable,
reverend. His hair flows in those
beautiful shades which'- no united
colors can match, fallfng in graceful
curls, below bis ears, agreeably
couching on his shoulders, and par
ting on the crown of, his head, like
tbe bead dress of the Beet of the Na
zarites. His forehead is smooth
and Urge, his cheeks without spot,
save that of a lovely red ; his nose
and mouth are formed, with exquis
ite sympathy ; his beard is thick
and suitable to tbe hair of his head,
reaching a little below his chin,
and parting in. tbe. middle like a
fork ; his eyes are bright, clear and
serene. He rebukes with majesty,
counsels with mildness, and invites
with the most tender and persuas
ive language. His whole address,
whether in word or deed, being el
egant, grave, and strictly charac
teristic of so exalted a being. No
man has seen bim laugh ; but the
whole world behold him weep fre
qnently ; and so persuasive aro his
tears none can refrain from joining
in sympathy with him. He is very
moderato, temperate and wise. Iu
short, whatever this phenomenon
may turn out in the end, he seems
at present a man, for excellent beau
ty and . divtro perfections, every
way surpassing . the children of
