We plead against passions certain
at this moment to be nerce ana in
tolerant; but on our side are the ages
and the voice ot history, we plead
lor the restoration of the Union,
against a policy which woukl all'rod a
momentary gratification at the cost of
years ot perilous hate aul bitterness
We have borne lor a quarter of a

and the sole cause ot discord between

could of course, not alw ays wisely
to baffle, to circumscribe, and ulti
mately to overthrow the slave power.
lt length through a succession oi
events which no huuiau being could
have devised or forseen, the end which
we eiucerely hoped but harJIy eXect

last rood of Christendom that it now
curses, can not be postponed five
years. Let as take care that no vin

imperil this glorious cunsumujution
Unquestionably, there uro men in
the South who have richly deserved
condign punishment. Whoever is
responsible for the butchery of our
black soldiers vanquished iu tight, or
the still more aitrocious murder of
captives, by wanton exposure and
privation in prison camps, stands in
this category. But the immediate
issue concerns not the dispensation ol
justice to individuals, but the pact Il
eal ion of a vast Republic. He who
faucios that all tne exhibitions ot cru
elty or perfidy have been the work
of rebels, has but a superficial knowl
edge of our current history.
L hoso who invoke military execu
tions for tho vanquished, or ever for
the leaders, we suspect will riot gen
emlly be louud among a lew who
have long been exposed to unjust
oditnu as haters ol the South, because
they abhorred slavery. And, as to
tho long onpressed and degiade blacks

be the neighbors, arm we tiust, at uo
distant day, the fellow citizens of the

President Lincoln's Speech
Delivered at the While
House on Tuesday night
April 11th.
We meet this eveniug in sorrow,
but in gladness of heart. The evacu
o .....
atiou ul 1 etorsuurg and luclitiioiid,
and the surrender of the principal iu
surgoiit army give hopes of a righte-
ius and speedy peace, whosd joyous
expression cau not be restrained. Iu
the midst ol this, liewever, tie loin
whom all blessings ojw must not r

thanksgiving is being prepared, am'
will uo promulgated duly, rsor must
those whose harder pait g-ves ua
cause for rejoicing be overlooked.
Itieir honors ruuat uot de parceled

of trans mi ting much or the good news
to you, but uo pait of the honor for
the plans ol their execution is mine
To General Grant and his skillful of
ficers and brave men all beloug. Th
gallant navy stood ready, but was
not in reach to take active part. By
these recent successes the reiuaugnra
tint of National auiiWity, a;id re
construction, which has had a Urge
share ol thought Irom the first, is press
ed much more closely on our atten
tion. It is fraught with great difficul
ty. Unlike a case of war between iu
Impendent nations, there is not au
thorized organ forus to treat with.,
No man has authority to give up re
bellion for auy other man. We siin-
L)l v must begin with a mold trom die
ot"auized and discordant elements.
Nor is it a small additional embarrass
ment that we loyal people dilf r
among ourselves as to tha mode, ann
ner aud measure ot a reconstruction
A a general rule. I absfaiu from rea
ding reports of attacks upon myselt,
wisLiuff not to bo provokea by mat
to which I can not properly offer an
swer. In spite ol this precaution,
it comes to aiy knowledge that 1 am
censured for some supposed agency
iu setting up and seeking to sustain
the new Stale Government of Louis
ianua. In this 1 have done just so
much, and no more, than the public
knows. Iu my annual message of
December, 1803, and accompanying
proclamation,' I presented a plan oi'
reconstruction, which 1 promised, if
adopted by any atate, would be ac
ceptable to sustaiued by the Execu
live Government. I distinctly said
Miiri was not the onlv plan which
mitrht nossibly be ecceutablb. and 1
also distinctly protested that the Ex
ecutivi claimed not the right to say-
when or whether members should be
admitted to seats in congress fron;
-tuch Stares. This plan was in ad
vance of that submitted and approved
hy every member of the Cabinet.
One of them suggested that I should
then, and in that convection, apply
tne Emancipation Proclamation to
the heretofore excepted uariaol Vir
ginia aud Louisiana. That I shoiiU
Irop suggestions about apprentice
ship for treed people, and that I shoud
omit the protest agamst my own
poer in regard to the admiuisaion
of-uie rubers of Congres. But even
he approved every pait an i parcel of
the plan which has since been em
ployed or touched by the action of
the new Constitution ol Louisaua.
The new Constitution declaring email
cipatiou f ir the whole State, practic
ally applied the proclamation to the
part previously exempted. It does
adopt apprintieealiip for tho freed poo
pie, and is silent, as it could pot bo
otherwise, about the admission of
members of Congress, so that as it
upplioH to Louisana, every member
approved of the plan, The mess
age wont to Congress and I received
many commendations of tho plan,
written and Verba': and not a single
objection to it from any professed
emancipati.inisc came to mv knowl
edge until alter news was received at
Washington that the people of Louis
ianua had bogtin to m ovs in accord
ance with it From about July, 1862,
1 had Corresponded with different
persons supposed to he interested iu
seeking u reconstruction of a State
Government for Louisianna. When
the message of 18G3, with the plan
before mentioned, reached New Or
leans, General Banks wrote me that
he was continent the peoplo, with his
military co-operation, woud con
struct substantially on that plan. 1
wrote uim, aud eome of them, to try
it. They tried it, and tha result is
known .
Such has been my only agency In
getting Lau siana, and the move
ment as to siistsiuing it. My prom
ise is out, as before stated, but as bad
promises are better broken than kept,
I shall treat this r.a a bad promise,
and break it whenever I sha'l be con
vinced that keeping it is adverse to
pubiic interest. But I have not yet
iieen so convinced. I have Seen
shown letters on thid subject supposed
to bo able ones, iu which a writer
expresses regret that my mind had
not seemed to bo definitely fixed on
ihe question whether tho seceded
States, so called, are in the Union oj
ut ot it. It would, perhaps, have
idded astonish n ent to his regret,
.vere he to learn that since I have
ou ml professed Union mi-u en leav
riug to answer that question, i have
purposely foi borne any public expres
s ou upon it, as it appeals to inu that
the question has not been, nor yet is
praciically a material one, aud tliAt
the discdssior: of it while it remains
practically .immaterial, could havt
no efi'jct other thdr. the mischievous
one of dividing our friends. As vet,
whatever it may become, that ones
Won is bad as a basis of controversy,
and good fur nothing. We all agree
that Ihe seceded States, so called, are
out ol their proper particular relation
with the Union, arid that the sole ob
ject of the Govern uent, civil anl
military, in regard to those states, is
to again get thorn into that proper
relation. I believe that it is not only
poasible, but in facts easier to do this
without declaring or even considering
wLether thoso Sutes have ever been
out of the jnion than wit'i it. Fin
ding themselves safely at home, it
would be utterly immaterial whether
they had been abroad. Let us all
join iu loiug acts neeessary to restore
the proper particular relations between
these states and the Union, and each
forever alter innocently indulge in his
own opinion whether iu doing such
act 8 ho brought States Irom without
into the Union, or only gave them
proper assistance, they uever having
been out of it.
The amount of the constituer.cy, so
to speak, ou which tho Louisana Gov
ernment rests, would be more satis
factory to all, if it contained 50,000,
90.000 or even 200.000, instead ol
12.000 as it does. It is also satisfact
ory to some, that the elective fran
chise is not given to colored men. 1
would mysell prefer that it now con
ferred on the very intelligent, and on
thoso who serve our cause as soldiers
Still the qnestion is not whether the
Louisana Government as it stands is
rrnite all that i? desirable. The ques
tion is, will it be wiso to take it as it
is. and help to improve it, or to reject
and disuerscl Can Louisiana be
brought into proper practical relation!,
j
with the Union sooner by sus'aiuin
or discarding the new Government!
Some twelve thousand voters in Ihi
heretofore slave ' State of Louisana
have sworu allegiance to the Union
assumed to bo the rightful political
power of the State held elections
organized a State Government adopt
ed a Iree State Constitution are giv
ing the benefit of public schools equal
ly to olacit and white, aud eniuovVi r-1
i.ig (he Legislature to confer tho elect
ive franchise upon colored men. The
Legislature has ulready voted to rati
fy the constitutional amendment re
cently passed hy Congress abolishing
slavery throughout th Uuion. These
12,000 pe. plearethus fully committed
to tho Union and to perpetuate Iree
dom in the Slate; committed lo very
many things aud nearly tall the things
the nation wants, and thev usk the
uAtion to give lliet.j recognition and!
assistance. To make this commilttll
we have rej.-cted aud spurned them
We do our utmost to disorganize and
disperse them. We in fact say to the
white man: "You are worthless, or
worse. We will uover help you, nor
be helped by yon." To the blacks
we will say: "This cup ot liberty,
which these, your old masters, held to
your lips, we will dash from you, aud
leave you to the chances of gathoiiug
the spilled aud scattered coutents in
si mo vague aud undefined way."
When, whore and how, if this course,
discouraging and paralyzing to both
white and black, has any tonJency to
bring L-iuisiaiia into proper practical
relations with the Union, I have, so
far, boeu unable to perceive. If, on
the contrary, we recognize and sustaiu
the new Government of Ljuisiana.no
converso of all this is male truo. We
encourage tin hoarts an nerve tho
arms oi la.UUO to aduere to their
work, aud argue Ibr it, and proselyte
fo. it, a:id light for it, and feed it.and
grow it arid ripen it to complete sue
cess. The colored man, too, in seeing
all united for him, is tospirod with
vigilance ana energy, nud by doinu
to the same eud, Griut that bo de
sires elective Iranchise, will he not at
raiu it sooner by saving already ad
vanced steps toward it, than by run
mug backwards over them? Concede
that the uew Government of Louisia
ua is only what it should be, as the
egg is to tho fowl we ehali sooner
havo fowl by Hatching tho eiL' than
by smashing it. Laughter.J Again,
il wo reject L misiaiia we alo nject
our vote in ravor of the tmnoHnd
amendment to (he Constitution To
meet tins proposition il has been ar
gued that uj more than throe-fourths
ut those States which have uot at
tempted secession are necessary to
validly ratify the amendment I do
not commit myself against this lurrh
er than to Sav that such inl't-runiM
would be questionable, auJ sure to
bo persistently questioned, while a
ratilicatiim hy ihroe-fourths of all
Slates would ba unquestioned and
unquestionable.
1 repeat the question, can L misiana
be brought into a proper political re
latioil with the Union sooner by
abolishing or acknowledging h;r new
State Government? What has been
said of Louisiana will apply to other
Stater, and yet, so great peculiarities
pertain to each State, and such im portant
and sudden changes in tne
same State, and withal so new aul
unprecedented is the whole case, that
')o exclusive Htid inrlexiblo plan can
safely bo prescribed as to details aud
collaterals. Etch exclusive uud in
dexible plan would surely become
uew entanglement. Important prin
ciples may and must be inflexible in
presentation, hS the phrnso ocs. It
may be the duty of the Executive to
make some new announcement to tho
people of the South. 1 am consider
ing it. and shall not fail to act wheu

From the American Monthly.
The Democratic Party.
"Depend upon il, the strength of
any party lies in adherence to ill
cwa heory. Consistency is tho lily
of any movement." '.
Si6aid Father Newman, wbaa
writing, not on politic?, but on relig.
ion. But the proposition is univers
al, and is emphatically applicable to
the Democratic: party of our coantry,
"Consistency is a jewel." ' It glit-i
t jrs; it attracts; it wius notice and ap
probation; it secures adherents,
There is great temptation, however,
to swerve a little from consistency
and from the theory of the party, iu
order to wiu place and powor. 'Man
loves power, and many men love moo
ey more- and, consequently, when the
gilded pinnacle of uowar hrio-hruna
the eyes, or the spoils of offico Ha glja
nugiy at uie reot, theory aud princi
ple are, too oiien, made to yield, la
the fond hope of realizing the bag of
gold, or the jewel ot the coronet.
Bat the great Djmocraiic party, so
poneut in the past,in order to be great
in the future, must not abandon the
lessons of the fathers, nor desert the
theory of its founders. If the spoilt
become the dominant obj ct for which
it flings Ua burner to the breeze, then
will its folds be tatter.d aud torn by
any gust ot wind that may chance to
beat upon it, aud soon will it trail in
the dust. On the other hand, let
there bo inscribed on that bsuner the
true theory of the party, aud it will
