HIS REPLY TO THE ADDRESS OF A
DELEGATION OF COLORED PAS
According to appointment, a delegation of
colored pastors waited upon the President
at 2 o’clock on Thursday, and were received
in his usual urbane manner. The Rev. Dr.
Turney introduced the delegation in a brief
address, in the course of w hich he said :
it is hut natural that they should desire,
In behalf of themselves and of those whom
they shall labor, a position equally favorablo
to that of others for the enjoyment of these
lacilities and ot all others which pertain to
the rights and privileges of a common man
bond. They wish me to say to you, sir, that,
if the Government will “deal truly’’ with
the colored people of these States, it will,
for all the purpeses for which the nation ex
ists, bind them to itself as with a three-fold
cord that is not easily broken.
THE PRESIDENT’S REPLY.
In response to what you have said on this
occasion as the representative and organ ot
those colored men who stand about you, 1
presume it is hardly necessary for me to In
fjrm them of as to what my course has been
iu reference to tneir condition. 1 imagine
there is not a colored man within the reach
vf information hut has to some extent been
inlonncd upon, aud placed in possession of a
knowledge of the course 1 have pursued
in the past iu relerence tJtbtlr present con
Now I shall talk to them plainly. They
know I have been born and raised in a slave
State; that 1 have owned slaves, raised
slaves, but I never sold one.
They kuow, I presume, that my slaves
have been made tree, and that there is a
ditleience in the responsibility that persons
have taken in reference to emancipation
when living in or out of slave States. It is
very easy tor a man who lives beyond the
borders to talk about the condition oi color
ed men, when in fact they know little about
it. They know they have some fiiends who
(•..oi uu onriliullr t.,wild them and who live
beyond the Southern lines. They know,
too, there are men who, though they have
beeu masters, yet (eel as deep an interest in
and regard for them, and would do as much
for their elevation and amelioration as those
who live anywhere else.
1 feel it would be unnecessary for me to
state what 1 have done in this great cause
of emancipation. 1 have ttood in their
midst, met their taunts and jeers, and risk
ed all In the s'.ape of property, life, aud
limb—not that I would cisim anything to
myself in establishing, sustaining, Hnd car
rying out the great principle that man could
not own property In mau. 1 was the first
that stood in a slave community aud an
nounced the great fact that the slaves of
Tennessee were free upon the same princi
ple as those were who assumed to own them.
1 know it is easy to talk and proclaim sen
timents upou paper, but it is one tbing to
have theories and another to reduce them
to practice ; and i must say here, what 1
have no doubt is permanently fixed in your
minds, and the impression deep, that there
is one thing you ought to teacu, and they
should understand, that in a transition state,
passing from bond to free, when the tyrant’s
rod has been bent and the yoke broken, we
find too many—it is best to talk plain—there
are, I say, too many in this transition state,
passing from bondage to freedom, who feel
as if they should have nothing to do, and
tall back upon thediovernraent for support;
too many inclined to become loafers aud de
pend upon the Government to take care of
them. They seem to think that with free
dom everything they need is to come like
manna from Heaven.
Now, I want to Impress this upon your
minds that freedom simply means liberty
to work and enjoy the product of your own
hands. This is the correct definition of
freedom, in the most extensive sense of the
There is another tiling; and I have been
surprised that people beyond the lines have
not pressed upon you this important idea.
It is easy in Congress and from the pulpit
North ami South to talk about polygamy and
Brigham YouDg, and debauchery of various
kinds, but there is also one great fact, that
four millions of people lived in open and
notorious concubinage. The time has come
when you must correct this thing. You
know what 1 say is true, and yon must do
something to correct it by example as well
as by words aud professions.
It is not necessary for me to give you any
assurance ot what toy luluro course will I e
in relercnce to your couditiou. Now, when
the ordeal is passed, there can he no reason
to think that 1 shall turn back in the great
cause in which 1 have sacritlced much, aud
I cau give you no assurance worth more
than my course heretofore, aud 1 shall con
tinue to do all that I can for the elevation
and amelioration of your condition; aud I
trust in God the time may soon come wheu
you shall be gathered together, in a clime
and couutry suited to you, should it be
found that the two races cannot get along
I trust God will continue to coodnct us
till the great end shall be accomplished, and
tbe work reach its great consummation.
Accept my thaoks tor this manifestation
of your respect and regard.
MR. BOTTS’ HISTORY OF THE SKCES
The Richmond correspondent of the New
York Tribune in his letter of the 8th instant,
Every one is anxiously awaiting the ad
vent ol tha new State Government and the
resumption of law in the Old Dominion.—
The hope is very generally expressed that
John Minor Botts may be called upon to act
in some capacity in establishing the new
status, and nis once Hpurucd aud disregarded
counsel, will, it is believed, go very far to
ward harinon zing the le -lings of tneperple.
Tb) tact tnaytaot oe generally known tnat Mr.
Bottr, over a year ato, had prepared for pub
lication a b tuk, reviewing tbe pro*re*i ot Re.
belliou from 1832, aud embracing ao account
ot the disbolicai schemes of intriguing poll,
ticiaas both North and South, which re
sulted in the great contest just past. From
intimations of the character of the work it
is one which will not only prove highly in
teresting, but one whicn will astound and
startle tbe civilized world, exhibiting as it
will tbe selUsh depravity of ruar-y living and
diatinguisbed politicians. *ine publication
of the work was deferred by Mr. Botts until
the termination of the war, and there can
now be no reason why it shonld be longer
delayed. And while speaking of the book,
an Incident in connection with it will not be
Prior t > the second arrest of Mr. B. by
tbe Rebel authorities here, he had taken
the precaution to deposit bis manuscript of
the book in tbe hands of a Unionist of the
city. When arrested at midnight, his pri
vate papers, with the exception of tbe MS.,
were seized and himself hurried away to
prison. On the day subsequent he wts vis.
tted by an officer of the prison, who dedred
to know whether he had concealed any doc.
menr.r previous to his arrest. Mr. Botts at
ODce replied tbat he had concealed one doc.
ument which he hsd no doubt the author!,
ties weald like to peruse. “What is it t”
eagerly queried the officer ; “I most have
it. ‘It is, returned Mr. B. placidly, ar.d

“\ou may have the MS. only ttn one condi

davit, duly signed by himself, that he will
on receiving the MS., hand it over to The

alteration or mutilation l” “But would you
dare to publish a work of such a characters
queried the officer. “Would I dare ?" re.

Hie officer seemed somewhat astonished at
Mr. Botts’ complacency, and inquired why
he desired its publication “Because by

Irom his reclining position and shaking his
clenched lists in the officer’s face, ••because
its publication would create a revolution

partIt is needless to say that Fugitive
Davis did not give Mr. Botts the required
assurance. This incident is given, not for
the purpose of glorifying Mr. Botts, lut
simply as a truthtdl circumstance to inti

Major General Rosecrans visited tbe Rep
resentativea’ Hall in the Stale House at
Boston, Thursday, and at the close of the
session made a speech. He said •
I perceived in large letters in the newspa

ing to rtise twenty-tive thousand men to go
to Mexico.” General Rosecrans is not go

General Rosecrans thinks tbai tbe soldier*

men, who have distinguished themselves in
the annals of all time, will permit them
selves to bo misled, or should be misled from
their high and honorable course into any
buccaneering expedition.” (Loud applause |
The General lurther said ho hoped to se..

that our common soldiers were worth a dozen
of them. [Loud applause.]
At the close of the speech three rousing
cheers we e given for Gcu. Rosecrans and
