A PROG4RESSIVE SOUTIIERNOR.
EX- GOVERNOR VANCE, THE JORTH
CAROLINA SENATOR, AND THE
DEMANDS OF THE HOUR.
In response to a sereitsde on the night
of his election as United States Senator,
ex-Governor Vance, of North Carolina,
I was reared a Whig; a party devoted
to the Union; as a Whig I fought dis
union, and stood by the Union even
until in the South generally, feeling it
self aggrieved, Unionism became very
unpopular. I still adhered to it until
my State, in her sovereign iapaelty,
attempted to dissever .r eomnection
with that Union. I then qeeted to go
with my State, my kith and kin. JaYr
ing joined the army I determined to
serve the new cause with the same un
swerving seal with which I had served
that of the Union. I was called upon
to support acts which had not before
and did not then meet with my approv
al, for the general good. I served as
your Governor; I clung with you to the
cause,and did not surrender my author
ity until the last hungry, ragged Con
federate had laid down his arms. After
the war, terms, upon conditions, were
held out to the people of the Bouth. I
would not accept terms that would sep
arate me from you and the brave boys
who went at your bidding. The longest
road has a turn. I did not wish to rise
until I could rise with you. Thank
God that time has arrived. We go up
now. We may go down agal, but we
will go down together; and I will have
with me good company-the best and
bravest hearts in the land. Because
our party has been triumphant there
are some who urge retaliation. This
should not be so. The best antidote for
tyranny, the strongest weapon against
it, is the enactment of Just and whole
some laws. Now that we have the
government of North Carolina in our
hands, we should not aim to avenge
ourselves for the overriding of civil
liberty among us, but we should so ar
range that it cannot happen again
should see to it that no executive or
other authority can again attempt to
destroy our liberties. From the obtain
ing of magna charta to the present day
no attempt to override or abridge it has
been made that has not more firmly re
establish liberty. May it be so here.
It is true that in the last five years we
have felt what it is to be without trial
by jury, to have arrests among us with*
out warrant, and the freedom of the
press abridged. All the people under
stand it now. It behooves us now to
build up the great principles of civil
liberty on the eternal rock of our great
country. Let anger, revenge, and re
taliation be ignored, and let the laws
on your statute book bear the impress
of a free people determined legitimate
ly to maintain their freedom. In my
place in the Senate I shall endeavor to
serve my great State and my country
with honor. That I shall be admitted
to seve you scarcely admits of a doubt.
The President's message, it is said, will
foreshadow amnesty, and the recent
elections show the handwriting on the
wall. There are many great statesmen
among the dominant party in Congress,
representing large constituencies,amnong
whom a tremendous revolution in sen
timent on these questions has taken
place. Those ment and the great Amner
ican people, who, after a long war of
blood and carnage, resulting in the
freedom of the African, will no longer
tolerate the enslavement of the Anglo
Saxon. Every law, both State and
national, shouldl be respected and obey
edl by all our people; bitterntess and
vituperation should cease, and men, no
lollnger enieavoring to desttroy each
other, should earnestly engender kind
ly fteeling among all classes of our cit
izens. To bring about thes, dtesirable
ends will le the earnest task of my life,
in Congress and elsewhere. I thank
you, fellow-citizens, for your conmpli
