The Agricultural Collese.
The Corporation of the Agricultural Col
lege met in this place last week. Present
Messrs. Morrill, Washburn, Park, Dorr,
Wheeler, Stevens, Richardson, Hammond
and Benedict. Thurs. afternoon, Hon. J. a.
Morrill and Gov. Smith, of the Committee
appointed by tho Trustees of the Agricultural
College to confer with other Colleges, met a
number of gentlemen connected with the
Faculty and Corporation of the University of
Vermont, and other influential citizens ; at
which meeting the objects and a'ims of the
Trustees of the Agricultural Collcgo were
explained, and a proposition in reference to a
union of the University with the Agricultur
al College was invited from the University
That such a union, if it could be made on
proper and satisfactory terms, would be of
advantage both to the Agricultural College
and tic University, was. we believe, tho
prevailing sentiment among the gentlemen
present. No definite action, however, was
inaugurated or expected, and tbo subject re
mains open for future action.
In the evening Picsidcnt Bourn of Jor
wich University, addressed the Trustees, in
dicating, as we learn, a willingness on the
part of that institution to merge itself in the
Agricultural College, on condition that the
latter shall be located at Norwich, and
that the President and one Professor of the
Norwich Faculty be retained in the Faculty
of the new College.
Strong interest and considerable fubscrip
tions to the contingent fund of the Agricul
tural College were reported from some Coun
ties of the State. In othcts little interest in
the matter is felt.
The Trusters adjourned to meet at Mont
pelicr on the second Tuesday in August.
Can Thev Take Care or Themselves ?
A Colored Income List. The question
whether the freedmcn of the South can sup
port themselves, is rapidly finding a solution.
Some statements recently made by Chaplain
James, who has been stationed in North
Carolina, bear on this point, lie says there
were m Beaufort about three thousand blacks
and nearly the same number of whites. Of
the lormcr between three and four hundred
were applicants for government aid ; of the
latter from twelve to fourteen hundred. At
Newborn, there was scarcely a trade or a
profession in which the negroes were not
represented. As to how they were getting
along, we copy the following very interest
ing statements :
In crier to obfa'n some facts by wbeh I might
estimate the amount of earnings to be credited
to these free and freed people, I posted a hand
bill in Newbern. requesting such colored people
as were not employed by Government, but were
pursuing some trade, profit sion or calling on
their own account, to report at ray office the
amount of tbeir income or earnings during the

The Faneull Ilnll Address,
To at People of ilt Uniled:Sldtti :
In pursuance cfthe-ctntm of the American
people to confer freely "with one another in time
of civil emergency, aoi the example of cur own
ancestors to speak 'It tbeir fellow citizens from
this place, we "kaxe been commissioned by the
citiiens this tny assembled in Faneuil Halt to
address yon upon the state of public affairs.
We claha no peculiar right to be heard, even
Tjy reason of the sacredness cf the spot from
which we speak; but the greatness of the exig
ency, the i-ritical questions your representative
in Congress will soon be required to meet, and
tbe singular unanimity which appears among
'the patriotic people of thii portiee vrf our land,
lead us to hope for your attention and considera
tion. To Teir.ove thfc obstructions which we kno-v
my Ve-artfully thrown in the way, we wish to
ay a you in advance, as matter ef hsncr be
tween citizens, that this meeting ntsi this address
have not teen prompted by any ercaniiition. or
any purpose of prtj and personal politics. Thev
are tbe spontaneous expressions ot tbe convic
tion of men in earnest, who have differed much
in times pist, and may be sepirated ag-iin a
their political action, but who arc forced to a
enmmou opinion on the present exigency cf af
fairs. That we may wisely consider our rights and
duties, understand whom apd what we have to
deal with, fcnrt the probabilities of the future,
we must ask you to review with us the ground,
however familiar it may seem to be.
For thirty years or more. Southern society has
been moving stcadilv in an opposite direction
from our own, until its entire system, and if
we may call it so its civilization, his become
hostile to, anl, at last, inconsistent with ourown.
In their progress, the Southern people had reach
ed a position where it may be said to have be
come their settled doctrine, social and political,
that the people of color are not by accident
and temporarily but by niture and forever
unfit for any other condition than tb.it of abso
lute slaves. On several millions of such per
sor.s net all negroes, but in whom is much
hite blood, with often but a quarter or an
eighth of the African their social fabric rested.
M hen not atrgressivc, tbeir system was intrench
ed behind State institutions, where no national
authority could reach it. From this condition
of things there followed consequences of the
utmost social and poliiical importance to the
government and people cf the Republic Slave
ry, with its effects on what would otherwice have
been the laborinc class of whites, resulted in a
system which is culstantially oligarchical.
It gave to the masters the advantages of oli
garchy, and trained them persomlly in its hab
its, sentiments and passioi s. Slavery and oli
garchy do not rest on political economy, but
have their sources in the pride and paswns of
men. They are, therefore, if circumstances at
all favor them, an ever present danger The
Southern people came to consider themselves as
moulded, by their training and position into a
master race, not only over their slaves, but in
their relttions with their fellow citizens of the
free States, whore political equality and free la
bor they had ccme to dc? pise. To support their
sj stem, in national politics, they invented and
used as a most effectual weapon, the dosma of
State supremicy, which they disguised under
the name of State Rights. It may. therefore,
be fairly said that three ideas had complete pos
session of Southern society Slavery, Aristocra
cy and State Supremacy. Upon these they car
ried on their political warfare till If 60. On
these they founded their empire in 1 SGI. On
these, and for these, they have warjed against
the Republic for four years a war of stupendou
That we may understand the cbiracter of this
antagonistic torce, with which we have now to
deal politically, we ask you to remf raber hat
they "accomplished. They mvde no inurreeiion
ef professed citizens for a redress of grievances.
They made no revolution or civil war within an
admitted sovereignty. They set up a distinct ami
inde jndent sovereignty within the territory of
the Kpublic This extended oeer eletcn Statis,
and we hardly saved our capital; while in the
States of Maryland, Kentucky and Mi-sourt,
the mcst the nation obtained at first was dec
laration of sovereign neutrality. Lroline at
the fad, and not at right or law, we must re
member that the rebellion drove out from its
usui red borders, every representative and oblit
erated every s;gn of Federal (tuftnrily. possess
ed eury fuot of grouuJ.and established and put
in opcrititn a central gofrnmont, completed in
all iis pans, hpslithe, executive and judicial.
It is true tbe rrbi-ls preserved the form of a re
public, but thev might have made their gottrn
laint a monarchy. They did as they rhoee. It
happened that they preserved tbeir "State lines,
and made few changes in their Slate constitu
tion-; but tbry mibt haveoblitentted both, and
nsoHcl themsehes into a consIidted empire
They did as they taw fit. They then denuindnl
rrcognmcn or us. and of the rest of the worM
raised armies and a navy, and forced the issues
of war. We had only to decline the issue of
war, ana tbe rewl government wouM havestiod
forth .1 completed, recognized empire.
In tbe course of a war of four tears, for tbe
restoration of tbe Republic, we must not forget
that not one place surrendered from pelitical
considerations. There were individual discrters
but not a regiment laid down their arms from
motives of returning loyalty. They fouzht to
the last as bitterly at lat as ever and were
surrendered hy their commanders only when
there was no other resource. It was by farce
mat tne territory they held is now in our mili
tary occupation. They admit thcmstlvis over
popred by superior numbers awl material re
sources, but we arc not aware that the admission
extends any further. Military organizitHins
agaicst the Republic are not practicable; but
they are seeking to open.and with the least pusi
l.le delay, the avenues to their old fields of po
litical contest and ascendancy. They will en
deavor to save all they can of the doctrine of
State Supremacy for future use. In tbe permis
sion for the return of the rebel L-sisUturc to
Richmond, and in the Sherman-Johnson picifi-
cation, our government barely escaped a serious
if cot a fatal political defeat, at tbe hands of a
J he purpose of the South is now to return
the exerci.-e of State functions with the utmost
possible speed, and with the least possible chance
in their home systems. To secure that, they
will do nnd submit to whatever is necess try. It
must constantly be borne in mind tint when
once a Slate is admitted to its place, the power
of the nation over all subjects of State coji.iz
ance is gone. If the dogma ef Slate Suprema
cy is not destioyed, fjr practice as tll as in
theory, the war will have been in vain. It lm.
not only been tbe favorite weapon of slavery, but
has been eagerly caught up by the enemies of
our institutions in Europe, the tenet that the
united states is not a naticn. a covernment.a
sovereignty, that the citizens owe lo it no direct
allegiance: that they cannot commit against it
the crime of treason, if they carry with them
into their treason the forms of State authoiity.

and exer.ise tmc eantnX brtr these regions and
people until ttrcSH'tA are restored 'to their fiilt
randier n Slates, in national as as in
State triiirs. This authority ii tt oe exercised
by the President or by CtSs&ress, or both, ac
cording to (he nature of each case. Though re
sulting, STCessarily, from the fact of the war,
the2 powers aie not necessarily to be exercised
Yy military pera'ns or in military fore!. This
tcmporarj, provisional authority, although su
preme fo' the time, may "Ji exercised, much of
it, by civil erfficeri,-using he methods of civil,
power, anfl admitting tbe employment of judi
cisnVand executive functions, with the arts and
bas;nes3 and social intercourse of life. This, we
undent ind to be in substance, the position
which the government now occupies, and we be
lieve the people recognize it to be of necessity
and of right
Let us now, fellow citizens, turn trarntreiilbn
to our rights and duties. Having succeeded in
this war, and holding lire rebel States in our
military occupation, it b our right and duty to
secure aka'tver the public softly and the pub
lic foWi require.
First. The principle must be put beyond all
question that tLc Republic has a direct claim
Uiou tbe allegiance of every citiieu, from which
no Stale can absolve him, and to his obedience
to the Iihs of the Republic, "anything in the
constitution or laws of any State to the contra
ry uot withstanding."
Second. The public faith is pledged to every
person of color in the rebel States, to secure to
them and to their pc6terity foreeer a complete
and veritable frecdem. Having promised them
this freedom, received their aid on tbe faith of
this promise, and, by a successful war and mil
itary occupvtien of the country, having obtained
the power to secure the result, we are dishonor
ed if we fail to make it good to him.
Third. The system of slavery must lie abol
ished nd prohibite-d by paramount and irrever
sible ltw. Throughout the rebel States there
must be. in the words of tbsler, "impressed
upon the soil itself, an inability to bear up any
but fiee men."
Fourth. The systems of the States must be
Unless tl e? points are recurcd, the public
fiilh will lie broken, and there will be no safety
fir the public peace 01 the preservation of our
It must be remembered tint, under the Con
slitutM.n, most of thisc subjects arcentirely mat
ters of State jiirisd'ictron. Once withdraw the
powers f war anil admit a Slate to its full func
tions and the authority of Ihe nation over these
sul jecls is gone. It is a State function to deter
mine who shall hold lard, who shall titlify in
State Courts, who shall l edueated and how,
wbo shall lalior and how, and under what
contract" or obligations and how enforced, and
who shall vote inNitknil as veil as in State
elei'tions. Hp have already said that all these
points now stand in the constitutions and laws of
the reliel Mates oNoded against the frtedmen.
Anion is necessary to put them right. So great
a change is no doubt, fundamental, and goes to
the bottom of their social and political system.
If it is not made iior, before cnil society becomes
setiled, before the States are reh red to the ex
ercise of all their powers, it will never be made,
in all huimti rrubtbility, by pvireful means.
The question now ccurs,howare these results to
1 secured before the- Slates are permitted to re
same their Inactions? Weagreethvt these results
oujht to be 'secured in conformity with what may
be called Ihe American system that upon which
and for which our Constitution wis male. This
i a system of separate Sla'rs each with separate
functions con'titulfil by the people of each, and
self government within its sphere, wiih a centra f
St ite constitutes! by the teMple of all. supreme
within its sphere, and llefinal judgeof itssphere
and functions. Ihe l'rtsiilent recngnizrs ihe
importance of proceeding in accordmee with
lhi sjstem. He aims at a rrstontu n of the
Statts by the people of ihe States, without resort
to tbe exercise of sovereign legislative jurisdiction
oer them by tbe general government. In this
we oSer him our sympathy as we ask for him an
inti lligent support. Hut, inasmuch as once re
stored Ihe Slate will l e lvecd our reach, the

No acbieiements in war or peace, no acquisitions
ot property, no 1 ducal ion. no mental power or
culture, do merits can overcome it. To make
the case worse, these people are not only dis
franchised but Ihe temper, spirit, ami the habits
of the ruling class, Ibe only class partaking of
civil authority, will keep them not only disfran
chised, but uneducated, without land, without
the right to testify, and without the means of
protecting their formal trtedom. The result
has been, and must ever be, that the system is
essentially and practically oligarchial, in such a
sense as actually and seriously to endanger the
public peace and the success of our republican
Attempts are made to embarrass the subject
by referring to several cf the free States, whose
constitutions restrict fret blacks in the exercise
of some of not usual rights of citizens. But
these are not practical questions before the coun

Besides, as we have said, the exercise of this
extraordinary authority must be upon practical

Its pot tical power
As we sneak from t freetate, it may be log
gfsted tb we are not so good judges of what
strazld be done for the colored people ot the toum
as those who have been brought up among them
It does not follow that those wbo have been
brought un under an abuse are the best judges
whether it shall be continued, orofnhat shall ne
substituted in its place.
The people of the liorth have seen the colored
races acting as freemen under free institutions,
which the people of the South have not. Tbey
who have only known the mac of color as a
slave liefore his master, or sometimes a a dis
franchised free man under a slave system em
bracing his race, are not the only nor necessarily
the best qualified das: to give an opinion as to
what be may do or what should tie done lor mm
as a free man, under free systems. History
teaches us that national emancipations do not
emanate from themasters. And wbereter ernan.
cination has seemed to disippoint expectations
the difficulties are traceable, in laree measures,
to persistent and multiform counteractions by
the late paster-class
Appeals may be made to taste or pride, on the

warped by such considerations. ihe present
question is strictly one of political justice and
safety, and not of social equality. When the
free nan ol color, educated in tbe common
schools, deposits a vote which be can write
hirnmlf, give a deposition which he can read
and sirn. and pays a tax on the homestr.ul
he has bought, the law forces no comparisons
between his intellectual, moral, physical or social
conditiin, and that of the whitecitizen, of what
ever nee or nation, who lives, votts or testifies
bv his side.
Rut the nation has a deep interest in the freed
men, by themselves considered. The Republic
must choose to-day between two results. The
milliois cf people of color in the South, no small
part ef them carrying the best white blood in
their veins, must le either an educate I. indus

a preud, restless, unrrpublican political and so
cial iristocracy. The .'resident has undertaken,
in certain of the rebel States, an experiment for
speedy restoration. Recognizing the general
policy and duty of restoration as soon as practi.
cabK the experiment commands our earnest
wistes for its success. By its success we mean
not tbe return of the States to their position (that
thev are only too ready to do); but their return
trifi Comi'fufiou in trairn Me pullir safety
and public faith shall be secured. V e cannot
conceal our apprehensions that the experiment
will fail ! The more recent signs are that the
spirit which caused the war is preparing to fight
over politically the ground it lost in battle. This
oujht not lo surprise us. Let no haste to restore
a state, no fear of rebel dissatisfaction, led the
Ilrrublic to compromise its safety or its hunor !
liuring the progress toward restoration, the
nation holds the States in military occupation
by jiowers resulting necesarby from successful
war. This hold upon them is to be continue!
until this or some other experiment does succeed.
He need not be precipiate. The present author-
tty, although iraulting I rem war. mav, as we
bate said, be largrly exercised by civil methods
and civil functionaries, and be accompanied
with tbe enjoyment of many civil rights and lo
cal municipal institutions, executive and judi
eial. If tbe present experiment fills, we may try
the experiment of building by tbe people fr.m
t te foundation, by means of municipal institu-
twLs cf towns and counties, with the aid of edu
Cit on, commerce, and the people becoming ac
commodated to their new relations, and so ad
vance gradually to complete restoration.
Tbis is but one suggestion. Various method
are open to us. Only let it be understood, that
there is no joinf at vhtch the rebels can defy,
politically, any more than they could in war,
the authority of the Ilepcbltc. The end the
nation bas in view is tbe same as that for which
tbe war was accepted and prosecuted Me res
toration of the States to their legitimate rela
tions uilh the Republic. The condition of
things calls for no limitations of time, or
methods. By whatever course of reasoning it
may be reached, upon whatever doctrine of pub
lic law it may rest, however long may be the
interval of waitiDg, and whatever may be the
process resorted to, the friends and enemies of
Ibe Republic should alike understand, that it
has the powers and will use the means to insure
a final restoration of the States, with Constitu

that shall secure the public safety and the pub
