SPEECH OF GEN. RICHARD BISTEED, Of New York, in Fanntil Ilall, Hasten, Oc tober 30, 1802. [concluded.] There are some men, too, of American birth who, professing attachment for the country and her free establishments, aud allegiance and loyalty to their government, are yet eternally complaining, and impeaching all tlgit is done, and all that is led undone. No class is so tierce in its protestations of patriotism and love of country as they. They would prosecute the war with the utmost vigor, bill declaim against the authority ol the President to send a single soldier into the Held of battle. They would vote money, if they were in Congress, to carry on the war to a speedy and successful issue, but assert that the expenditures of govern ment are prodigal, unnecessary and dishonest. They would strike rebels down with the most efficient weapons of otfense, hut always have one half of their armies filled with olive bran ches. They would confiscate the pro|>erty of rebels, but not allow a negro within the pro tection of our camp lines. They would main tain the authority of the Constitution, lint are prompt with a tresh compromise to traitors, whenever its authority is trampled upon aud defied by them. They would put rebels in arms to death, but will lead Stuart's cavalry the way to their neighbor’s stables. They would not give an inch of territory to Jeff. Davis, until “ after Richmond is occupied by the Union forces.” They would fight for “ the Union as it was," but are ready to “let the erring sis ters go in peace." This is their love of coun- j try, this is their patriotism, this their democ racy. In the great State of New York, their candidate lor governor, in a studied speech, made on receiving a nomination by a species of previously-arranged political spontaneous I combusliou, called a nomination by acclama tion, denounces the last session of the national legislature,and stigmatises its course asa career of “ agitations, outrage aud wrong;" brands Congressional virtue as “ glistening putres- j ence,” aud “ thin lacquer;” begs for his “ pro portional share of political power,” and en joins upon his followers at this crisis to keep alive the vigilance of “ party contestdraws distinctions between “ our government and its administration,” and suggests that" weakness" or “ folly in the conduct of alfairs, go far to justify resistance” to the government itsell, and that “ raal-administratiou demands change •f administration;” joins the scheme ol eman cipation with his own assertion of “a general arming of the slaves,” and calls the plan thus begotten by himself, but attempted to be foist ed upon the government, “ a proposal for the butchery of women and children, lor scenes of lust aud rapiue, of arson and murder.” All this and more, ad nauseam, in the same speech in which, in terms of self-glorification, he de clares that he, and those who act with him, “wish to see our Union saved, and our laws tt All *1.: . Sl. . ■- ----r,v*■ slou that they "do not claim more virtue or intelligence than” their opponents, who, ac cording to his statement, are “ inexperienced in the conduct of public affairs, drunk with power,” and “ black with ingratitude.” All this, poured iuto the ear* of the unreflecting masses, whose educational acquirements are not sufficient to protect them from the designs of sophistical and scheming, or “ vulgar and mechanical” politicians. AH this to secure votes for Horatio Seymour and that wretched outcast, his companion and rival, Fernando Wood. All this already repriuted in Charles ton and Savannah, with approving commeuls of the men and their sentiments, and to be greedily caught up by the English press, and published as evideuce that the great North is divided among itself, nud has no confidence in its own government. All this for the parly against their country I All this for themselves j against the truth! “ O shame, where is thy i blush!” Cicero, iu his day, speaking of such, j asks, “If you are a citizen, in what sense was i Spartieus an enemy ?” This is the same class which has made a con stant outcry and whine, because of what are I termed arbitrary arrests by the government. I How many of these military arrests have been made since the rebellion broke out? Not ■ three huudred, all told, in a population of j twenty millions. Who have been arrested? Has any man of known and approved loyalty, of good reputation lor patriotism among his j neighbors, and well disposed to his govern ment ? Not one. There is a homely adage which says that where there is smoke there must he tire. Suspicion does not ordinarily attach itself to inuorence. The general judg ment ot a community is not apt to he mistak en, and if a man be reputed to sympathize with the enemies of his government, and his con duct or speech justifies this opinion, it surely . is not a harsh exercise of power at a time j when the State is in imminent peril from trea son, to put such a man out of harm’s way un- I til Ills vicious propensity has exhausted itself or been cured, if a real patriot be unjustly accused and imprisoned, lie will readily for give his country the error of honest zeai, and the home traitors who sutler in this way can sue for false imprisonment, and the country will pay any verdict they recover. If our gov ernment makes no greater encroachment upon tile rights of the citizen than these military attests, the liberties of the people will not be seriously imperiled by Mr. Lincoln’s admiuis t ration. This same class of fault-finding “submission ists are also greatly exercised because of the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus. The President has been assailed with every species ot invective on this account. He has been re minded that Charles the First was brought to tlie block for a lesser act of despotism, and that even N?i|>oleon dare not \te the tyrant he is. The act is denounced as a violation of liis oath of office, and an unwarranted assump tion ot power. English history is ransacked U> prove this, and the bones of the old barons aie exhumed and suhpoened to attend as wit nesses, and bring “Magna Charta” with them. Analogies are found between thiugs wholly i aiiu UUCWJ uincuKiam, Him I lie 5110 ! missionists are frightened to death lest the Constitution shall be preserved and the coun I try saved in an unconstitutional way. Therc | speet they have for law is only equalled by their love of liberty. Morning,noon and night they cry and din into the ears of the patriot j President. “The Constitution, the Constitu j tion!” and every pulsation of his heart throb | bingly answers, “The country, the country!” God bless Abraham Lincoln! ! Let us very briefly consider this question of the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus. That it may lie suspended in cases of rebellion or invasion, where the public safety requires i it,is provided by the Constitution Itself. Which j of departments of the Government is charged with, the power of suspending the writ is the question of embarrassment and doubt. Conflicting opinions as to it are enter tained by men of equal learning and intelli gence, and there is no determination of the Supreme Court to which resort can be had. It is the question of the construction of the statute, always a difficult and vexatious inqui ry- It is to know what the framers of the Constitution meant, by what they have some what Insufficiently expressed. The President, a lawyer himself, and a man w'hose conscien tiousness even his opposers concede, is ofopin ion that the Executive may, in the cases pre scribed, suspend the privilege of the writ There can be little room for doubtthat his con stitutional advisers agree to this view. Mr. Seward and Mr. Stanton enjoy and deserve the highest reputation in the'legal profession. The Attorney General of the United States, too, has given an official opinion in favor of the riglil of the President to exercise the pow er. Now, who shall decide, when casuists and doctors disagree? If Mr. Lincoln is wrong, he has at least erred in good company, and even if it should turn out that the better un derstanding of the constitutional provision is not the one entertained by the Government, the President may throw into the faces of howling sympathizers with treason, that old Latin motto, derived from the twelve Roman tables: “Stilus populi, mprema est lex.’’ He can «av to them, "To do u great good, I have done a little wrong. To sate a nation I im prisoned a man. To preserve liberty forever to twenty millions, 1 restrained live hundred of their freedom for a day;” and, confiding in his own integrity, and the generous support of his loyal country men, need have no anxiety for tlie present or the future, growing out of the imprisonment of a few miserable imitators of the vices of Benedict Arnold, bereft of the benefit of “capias” or “nilrr,” and detained, in defiance of the “habeas corpus ad respon dendum.” The chief cause of complaint qpde against the President is Ins emancipation proclama tion. It is almost ludicrous to witness the con tortions and consternation which this act hits produced among traitors and their allies ev erywhere. In one and the same breath, it is proclaimed a harmless thunderbolt, and an unchristian and savage means of overcoming an enemy. Now itis'Toj et precterea nihil, and now it is a sword, and a lire, and a propo sal for the horrors of a St. Domingo insurrec tion. To-day the Richmond and Charleston paper* regard it “a tritie light as air;” to-mor row tlie same journals vent columns of hate and fury and abuse upon its author, and ad jure him, in tiie language of Othello; "Never pray more; abandon all lomorec. On horror’s head honors accumu’ate; Do deeds to make heaven weep, ail earth amazed; For nothing canst thou to damnation add Creator than that." Where is Mr. Lincoln’s constitutional au thority to issue a proclamation? ask the ad vocates of dishonorable peace. Where, 1 ask, in answer, is the constitutional authority for this slaveholders’ war upon the country t The Constitution did not and could not provide for every possible condition in the future of the Republic, It did not anticipate that the thing it gave protection to would make war upon the life ol its protector. In framing a written code for government, much must nec essarily be left to rational implication, and much more to un absorbing subsequent neces sity if it arises. It sometimes happens, that to extinguish a conflagration you must tight lire with lire; the ordinary agencies are insuf ficient for the emergency, and to save the building or town from being a smouldering ruin, you must do something else than put on water. The owner of the orchard first tried moral suasion on the thief, who laughed while he stole from the richly laden boughs; next tufts of soft green were aimed at and hit, but did not hurt the poacher, who continued to steal. Finding expostulation and gentle meas ures alike unavailing to protect his property, the farmer tried the virtue of hard blows, and very soop the ensconced robber was glad to disgorge his plunder, and cry, “Don’t, dou’t, I’ll cmne’dnwu.” The President has been a« wise as the men who devised the new way to put the fire out, ami as good nattired as the farmer. In his speech at Philadelphia, on his way to Washing ton, he said that igi his view ol the then uspect of affairs “there need he no bloodshed or war. There is no necessity for it. I am not in fav or of siicli a course—and, I may say in ad vance, that there will be no bloodshed unless it be forced upon the Government.” In his Inaugural address he declares: “The protection which, consistently with the Constitution and the laws, can lie given, will be cheerfully given to all the States, when lawfully demanded, for whatever cause,—as cheerfully to one section as another. I hold tliut ill fWinluinirlutSmi /sf . . ... -.. I I 1 ol' the Constitution, the union of these States is perpetual. I shall take care that the laws of the Union be faithfully executed in all the Stales; in doing this there need be no blood shed or violence; and there shall he none un less it be forced upon the national authority. Yon (the South) can have no conflict, without being yourself the aggressor.” This was his moral suasion. It failed of its appropriate etiect. Congress passed the confiscation Act and the hill abolishing slavery in the District of Columbia, and, bv the Presi dent’s approval, these measures became laws. These were his tufts of yrass, but they were despised by the plundering vagabond's, who kept on stealing and cheating. Next came the emancipation proclamation. This isjiis coup de-main, and unless the reliels are within the definition of those whom the gods destroy, before the first of January they w ill lie singing out right lustily. “Don’t throw that stone, I ncle Abe; we will yield to you; we prefer to -live under the old Coustitution, even with the prospect of its being amended, than be exposed to the war-power of a great people, exercised in defense of their unity, nationality* and laws.” I want no better evidence of the value of the emancipation proclamation than is furnished by the unmistakeable panic that seized all re l>ellioii when it was known to he issued. The Congress of the so-called “Confederate States," proposed as a retaliatory measure the indis criminate murder of all’ of our soldiers who, b.V the chances of the field, should thereafter fall into the rebel hands. War was to mean ruthless and barbaric homicide. The black flag was to lie raised, and "no quarter” to be 1 the rallying cry of their armies. One of tlie'border States men aliout whom the submissionists exhibit so much concern, the late Hon. T. A. R. Nelson, in an address nominally to the people of East Tennessee, lint really to the doughfaces of these latitudes, ci ies out against “the atrocity of Mr. Lincoln's proclamation,” and “his many violations of the Constitution, and his crowning act of usurp ation. ’ “May we not hope,” exclaims this Southern ‘Pumblechook,’ that a spirit of re sistance will be aroused in that section (the North), which, combined with the efforts of the South, wilt hurt Mr. Lincoln from pow er f" May you? No, sir; such hope will not lie realized; it is of the kind that makes the heart sick. The language of this letter is a fair sample of how tlie proclamation affects the traitors, and that may safely tie assumed discreet and w he lor us which embarrasses and endangers our enemy. Depend upon it, the emancipa tion arrow has pierced the hcai't of treason. The rebel states have now their’ future in their own keeping. If the effect of the proc lamation will be as they claim, to incite servile insurrection, they have it in their own hands to prevent the horrible catastrophe. More than three months have to elapse from the date of its issue to the time of its. going into effect. They are not taken unawares by the government. The same proclamation which announces its intentions in respeet of the slaves of the rebels, declares that the war is to lie prosecuted only for the supremacy of the Government, and the solidarity of the Repub lic. Let the rebels lay down their arms: let them return to their allegiance; let them dis perse and go to their homes; let them cease to be usurpers and murderers, and there will be no confiscation of their property, no emanci pation ot their slaves, no servile insurrection. Their peculiar institution, although held ac cursed by us. will continue to receive constitu tional and political sanction; their cotton will And an eager market, with quick sales and in creased profits; and the whole military force of the United States, if need be, stand guard at their hearth-stones, to protect their women and children from violence ami harm. But let them keep their blood-stained hands upon the throat of the nation; let them continue pirates on the sea and highwaymen on the land; let them spread carnage and death among a peo ple whose magnanimity they have called cow ardice, and whose generosity they have an swered with treachery and deceit; let them, in a word, continue this war upon us, till the advent of the coming year, and their blood, and tlie blood of their wives and children be upon their own heads. Impartial history will not inculpate us, if their stubborn wickedness ends in a drama of horror which humanity shudders to contemplate. Oh. misguided meu. be entreated while yet there is space between you and doom. Stretch not out any farther your hand against God, and “run not upon the thick bosses of his bucklers.” There is a natural way of ending this war, better than that proposed by peace-democrats or submissiouists; better titan to disrupt the nation; better than the projector two rival re publics within geographical limits admitting of but one; better for us, better for mankind. The plan is simple, honest and manly:" Let them end the war teho begun it. From the Arst boom of treason’s cannon until the last act of reliel horse-stealing in Pennsylvania* this has been a war of aggression upon the North. It is the North that has been dragoon ed and insulted and defied; it is the North that has been refused the freedom of speech and the right of petition ; it is the North that was denied the right of a joint tenant in the common property; it is Northern men who have been tarred and feathered and ridden on rails; it is Northern women who have been stripped and stri|ied; it is a Northern Senator who was murderously attacked in the Nation’s Coun cil ('handier, by a band of brutal and cowardly ruffians: it is the North that suffered long and was kind : it is the North that was not easily provoked; that bore all things, that endured all things; it is the North that was struck; it is the North that was wary of an entrance to the quarrel; it is the North that “being in. will liear it, that the opposed may la-ware of her.” The North was lari in the fight; the North will be last out of it. We did not seek it, but we will not shun it. This is not only the natural way of ending me siave-uomers war, om n is uie only way. Let it be at once and clearly understood that we of the North can never recede, can oiler no compromise, be a party to no treaty. Our self-respect, our honor, our pride, the safety of ourselves and our posterity, free institutions throughout the globe, liberty and the rights of man, make it impossible. Primary instincts, educated reasonings, and eternal principles, forbid. We may be involved in a ten years,or a twenty years' war, before our Constitution defeats and slays its cuemi.es; we may be driv en or fall into a broil with England, France or the world; are may fr- defeated on the Poto mac and the Mississippi, by Lee and by Beau regard; the rebels may be recognized; our currency may depreciate, our commerce cease, our lands be uncultivated; our sous and oar selves till unknown graves; all these ills, and all imaginable distresses and calamities may come upon us as consequences of tiie war made against us. We must accept all rath' r than recede. We fight for Civilization, Chris tianity and Freedom, against Barbarism, Infi delity and Slavery; we light lor ourselves and tiie r ice, and can not, must not, will not com promise the heritage of freedom, and the in terests of mankind. Eaeli succeeding genera tion will begin tiie strife where we leave it off. j ami each age consecrate itself to tiie cause of ; upholding American Liberty. (it tiie shock of opposing forces, victory j eventually goes where it properly belongs, and unless eight millions can conquer twenty mil lions, unless sueli a minority, with no excess of mental, moral, or material advantages, can vanquish sucii a majority, possessed of wealth, intellect, and education, and physical power, tiie issue inay be mathematically as certained. Add to this, that ‘Thrice is lie armed, who hath his quarrel just, Amt he but naked, though looked up in steel. Whose conscience with injustice is corrupted.*’ ami although tiie end may not be reached by our childrens’ children,the problem is already sulced. Mr. President, and men of Massachusetts: When tltis rebellion shall lie crushed out, the historian will find in the achievements of your glorious State ample material for commenda tion and praise. True to your revolutionary character, you have nobly maintained the lib erties to secure which your ancestors sacri ficed their lives, and made every inch of New England soil a heir-loom of freedom. In your State tiie first blow for imWi's enfranchise ment was struck, and the first blood of tiie Revolution was spilt: "Here once tlie embattled farmers stood, And flrod the shot beard round the world." In tills last war for constitutional liberty and democratic government, your sons were the first martyrs. The names of Whitney and Ladd will be embalmed in the same urn with those of Jonas Parker and Jonathan Harring ton; and the "MassachusettsSixth” divide the honors with the “minute men” of Acton and Bedford. I tender to you my most respectful acknowl edgments for your generous reception; and here, in this cradle of American liberty, with in these walls which have echoed the eloquence of Webster and Choate, and Sumner and Wil son, and Andrew, and Banks, and Everett, surrounded by the represented lineaments of tlie great dead, and animated by their life and example, I renew my vows to Freedom, and solemnly swear to defend and support the United States against all her enemies. issii JAMES P.
