WASHINGTON, D. C., May 18, 1863.
GiiNTLEMiiN: I havo jtiat received
your letter of the 7th inst , inviting
mo, in bohalf of tho Washington
Uuion Club, of MemphiB, to join in
puaue celebration ot tho aumver
saty of tho Burrenderof that city to
tho Federal arms. You also uponk
kindly of my past efforts ta induce
tho people of West Tennessoo to con-
aunt cheerfully to tho "restoration of
tijo national authority throughout tho
South."
If I belicvod (hat by meeting yon
on tbo occasion referred to, I could
bo of service to a sinlo honest, law
abiding citizen, or. truly repentant
rebel, or that 1 could contributo, to
tho least extent, in ending tho war
and restoring 'tho bleB8in?9 of iipa
under tho Constitution. I would oer.
tainly attend. But I havo no such
faith in uiyaelf, and therefore I shall
not go.
la your letter you express tho ouin-
ion that by a "direct personal appeal"
I niitrht "enconraae tha lovnl nnd
reclaim the disloyal"". I confess my
astonishment. at Ruch a Btatomeut;
and I can attribute this opinion of
yonra to nothing but a failure on yonr
pan to comprehend that masterly pol
icy of our treat and eood President
and tho wiso statesmen who aid him
in shaping and directing the civil
policy of tho Government. When
you havo fully studied and under
stood tlio grand purposes of our most
liod fearing and law abiding Prebi
dent: wheu vou aro nioro familiar
with tho profound military strategy,
which, as ''Commander-in-Chief of
tjio Army and Navy of thd United
States," ho is now displaying ; aud
when you turtber remember tho as
tonishing success wo have had in
reclaiming our "misguided country
men," ond conquering our "way
ward Bistors," I shall bo amazed if
you continuo to believe U neceaaary
to "oncouracre tho loval" or "reclaim
tho disloyal.," Why encourago the
loyal ? Is it possiblo they need en
couragement in Memphis, where, for
nearly a year, yon have been inside

send tbem to their friends down South,
or to tha Dry .Tortugas,. which b nn
deritood by many to be a place where
every berfy.is tortured .with ,'thirst for

better Acted for tho offico than any

or lathers or the thousands ot sold

September West Tonnosseo had fur

committee imitate tho "loyal leagues"
of Baltimore and resolve that you
not only approve all tho present wiso
and patriutic ' administration have
dono, but that you will sustain and
uphold every thing it may hereafter
do. Lot tho committee nuiko an ela
borate report, accompanied with ies
olutiona denouncing all wbq find fault
with our most cxcellont President.
For instance, the last Congress fin
J'lly, 1802,) pitsscd a law to coiilis
ca'te the property of .certain robols.
That- Congress, . though a very wiso
body, did not posaees as much aggre
gate wisdom as Our in-eat and cood
Prcjident In proof of this wo need
hut refer to tho facttlmt tho Congress
aforesaid that under this law,' trial
should precedo convictiou and for
feiture, and that guilt should bo pro
ven, not presumed. Worse still, it
offered au amnesty to repentant reb
els ; it mercifully gave them sixty
days in which to accept it, and provi
ded further that our most uoblo Pxeat
dent might suspend for a period the'
operations of this law as our armies
advanced southward,' so as to afford
all an opportunity to accopt pardon.
WorBO still, this law actually applied
to none but tho rebels. And it is as
tonishing that it applied to thsm
every w hero, North and South; in
Springfield, Illmos.as well ns Spring
field, Tennessee. But worso Btil! ; it
did not wantonly effect tho rights or
property ot Union men, women and
chilUreu, or lunatics, in any section
tf il. - L.
oi tuu couutry.
That Congress, strango as it may
seem, did not percoivo that tho.way
to cud tuo rebellion and roscoro alkc
tionato relations between tho sections
wns tu place the Union men, women,
children, aud tho insano upon a per
fect footing of equality with tho vileBt
traitors in the land ! That Congress

obedience to tho usurpation of Jell'.
Davis & Co., in Mississippi, Arkan

amid the terrors of a military despot
ism, uiu not merit tuesarao or worse
punishment than they had denounced
against titled and official traitors I
That Congress spared tha woman and
children ; also shielded from harm
tho Union men who still adhered to
the national symbol of protection I
What weakness l uut Congress had
adjourned. What was to be dono f
luauk heaven, our sagacious Presi
dent was found equal to tha occasion.
1 ou will perceive that on tho first
of January last, under this so-called
confiscation law, tho slaves of every
rebel in- tho United States who bad
not accepted tho amnesty therein pro
vided were do jure froo. But how
wero wo to ond this rebellion if the
Union men. women and children in
tho bo called Confederate States, wero
left in undisturbed possession of all
their logal aud constitutional rights i
If this policy were adopted the rebels
might become angry with these mou
uinenta of Federal mercy, and in that
cvoni inespareu monuments aiorosaia
might clfn-j more' closely to the fed
eral flag.'- -This division among tho
people might causa a still more un
happy state of affairs down in Dixie ;
our irienas there might have to bear
additional indignities. As before re
marked, our merciful and considerate
President was found ' equal -'to tho
crista, in a long conversation with
soma inspired apostles from the saintly
city oi Caicago- -a placo where Under
donking and" other worldly '"amnsa
ments are tinkowrr the ' President
candidly 'confessed that h 1was;en-
deavoririarfhodid not urnrn tha nWna
to ascertain tho will of tho Lord upon
this difficult
as he learned tho Divino pleaauro he
veriiy would Go tho will oftlio Mastc
who sent him. Tho revelation came,
doubtless, "bv duo course o! mail."
J udging from that "which is written,"
unmounted to this: that in portions
of Virginia and Louisiana; in Dola
ware, in Maryland, in Kentucky, in
Au.iuossco nnd Jiiasoun it was iaw
ml tor. traitors who had accepted the
amnesty provided by tno confiscation
law, and all other persons, to hold
slaves ; but thrit in tho tido water ro
gions of Vifgiuia, and in that part ot
Louisiana which had not been conse
crated to slavery by tho military occu
pation of General "Butler, as also in
North Carolina, South Carolina.Flor
ida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi,
Arkansas and Texasit Should no
longer be lawful for tho Union men.
women, aud children to hold our Af
rican fellow-citizens to service or la
bor.' And yet thcro aro thoao of the
"Copperhead persuasion" who profess
not to see tho wisdom of this groat
ma3tor-Btroko of our most noble and
exalted President. Sir. d'd it not im
mediately divide the South and unite
tho Nirth ? Wero not our citmns
forthwith crowded with countless
myriads of bold and ardent recruits ?
Havo not "our American brethren'
of "African deseent" crowded by thou
sands into our ranks, inspiring o;ir
soldiers with a wild enthusiasm, and
rendering night vocal with tho songs
of oulracchised Dinahs and muling
and puking Sambos i And havo not
our arms been victorious overy whore
sinco tho dawn of tho negro millen
nium of. 18G3?
I. know that men like General M.
Brayman, who commands in your
vicinity (at Bolivar, TennesBce,) are
guilty ot absurdities of speech, which
afford tho' enemies of our sagacious
President excuses for complaint nnd
criticism. For instanco, on the 14th
of last March that officer, then in com
mand at Bolivar, wrote as follows in
regnrd to tho Proclamation of Frce
dom, with which our illutrious and
far seeing President greeted tho ad-
vont of the now year. Tho loyal mau
is equally helpless with tho disloyal
in tact, tuoro so ; lor tho rebel takes
his slaves South, or hires them in tho
army in which he himself servos.whilo
the lavcs of loyal men llec to our
camps beyond reclamation. Under
this process the rebol bolus his 6lavcp
by canying them into a State in which
they aro declared free, while the law
abiding citizen loses his by retaining
them in a btato rvhero it is lawiul to
hold them. As it is now, tho loyalty
and good conduct of these men avail
thorn nothing."
In speaking of the elovuting effects
of this system upon our armies and
the negroes,. Gen. Brayman shocks
our sensibilities by tho uao of such
language as this: 'Their expeuse
to the Government is enormous. It
requires soldiers to guard them. They
sicken and lio iu filthy corrals. They
becomo debased and demoralized
They debase aud demoralize the
army."
Now among the resolution you will
adopt at tho Momphis uiectiu there
should, by all means, be ono censur
ing Gen. Brayman for tho uso of lan
guago so insulting to "out fellow
citizens of African descont," and so
justly calculated to incenao the slave
owners in lennesseo who have bo
stubbornly refused to join tho rebols.
Why, sirs, this license of speech
must bo suppressed. What right have
mon who do not support tho present
wiso and efficient administration to
criticise its policy. or tho consequen
ces of it ? Within tho last few clays I
have heard persons in this city in
this capital which bears tho sacred
namo of Washington, and which for
the present is the homo of our illus
trious chief magistrate draw seem
ingly invidious distinctions between
tho lato of Jessa D. Bright, of Indi
ana, and .that of John M. Butt3, ol
Virginia. How ray blood boiled with
pious iudignatiou wheu, a few days
ago, I heard a certain individual of
tha straightest sect of Copperheads
discussing ; thus: "Jesse D. Bright,

President will in duo time adopt
snitablo means to ascertain the will
of the Lord in his behalf. Indeed, it
seems to have been made known
already to somo of tho lesser lights.
Last week a grand convention of the
women of America assembled in the
city of New .York. Each delegate
had conceived an idea : and nn,w
tho inapiraion of tho gicat occasion
tney navo commanded our magnificent
President to proclaim throughout tho
onds of tha earth . 1 doubt not, at the
proper timo, ho will so proclaim ; and
the twenty thousand troops which his
excellency Gov. Andrew Johnson
was recontly authorized to recruit in
Tennessee will soon bo ready for the
good work of giving practical freo
dom to our enslavod fellow-countrymen,
male aud female, of -African
descent. ; When that timo . comes
Mempbia will be a lovely city. . Its
walks and its promenades will be
illuminated by the Bmiling faces and
brilliaut eyes of tha graceful and ac
complished sons and daughters of
Lincoln and Liberty; of Dancnesg
and Dahomey. True, our Sate con
stitution aud laws, like those of Illia
ois and other loyal States, will not
permit freo negroes to como within
our Stato, nor enfranchised slaves to
remain there; but from military
necessity, or, as a high official exprea
