Pnisident Joliti80n' veto message la a document distinguished by ability, digni ty utid candor, it U the production of a man who Is In earnest; who is well per suudrd that he ig right; who leeli andao cepta the responsibility; and who believes the people are with him. Such a paper constrains respect, for it is emphasized br power, and it should receive the calmest and closest consideration from all good and thoughtful citizens, lor the subject is Im portant and the times are critical. . Certainly we have the highest testimony that the President has acted from a pro found sense of publio duty, for the bill which he has vetoed would confer upon him unexampled powers. Neither the Russian Czar nor the Austrian Emperor rules over the conquered provinces or ro laud and of Italy as the President might rule over the States of the South nnder the f revisions of the Freedmen's Bureau bill. Ic could fill those States with his creatures, planting them as thickly as PostolHces, and support each one with a military force. He declares, however, that the power which would thus be placed in his hands Is such as ought never to be Intrusted to any one in time of peace; and this sturdy rejec tion, upon principle, of the allurements of enhanced and almost unbounded authority aflbrds a spectacle of austere Republican virtue, that even the enemies of the Presi dent must admit is exemplary and admira ble. It Is telegraphed from Washington that much "indignation" Is felt at the conduct of the President, and there are absurd sugges tions that he must be held to have commit. ted an audacity. This comes from the cir cle that has assumed to be exclusive In loy alty, and that some time ago made procla mation that If the President presumed to differ with them, he uiuskbe a traitor. The occasion is one of too much gravity for the discussion of the Issues presented to be per mitted to proceed in the spirit of this vin dictive trifling. At the outset, at least, let the cries of passionate partisans be dis regarded by the people. Here and now, if ever and anywhere, is a question to be an alyzed with care and determined upon Its merits. The President does not Inaugurate a new policy or advocate one. He simply pursues the even tenor ol ins way. ine last days of President Lincoln were, as is well known, largely given Dy mm to reflec tion, in maturing a magnanimous policy for the restoration of the Union ; and Pres ident Johnson has walked right on in the line his predecessor had traced. His policy was well known on the first day ot this Congress, having been clearly defined in his proclamations of amnesty, and estab lishing provisional governments; and the warfare against him by the .Radicals has been bitter and without intermission, while he has avoided an outright conflict with them, as far as possible, consistent with a decent sense of respect for himself and his own convictions. Democrats rejoice over the veto. Of course they bail with satisfaction every evidence of the discomposure of the Union party, hoping in its disintegration to find the wav for themselves to resume the places of power. They are probably acting upon Impressions that are wholly unwar ranted. It does not follow because the President avoids one extreme that he will rush to the other. It is not needful to be a Copperhead If one is not a Radical. The Democratic party has no principles, and the country will never revolve around it any more. We are not aware that any of the old partisan organizations are essential to the welfare of the nation. The people will be divided, as they ought always to be, between the suLporters of the Administra tion and its opponents. The President is not going to the Democrats. They can go to mm at tneir pleasure. National obligations to protect the Union men of the South, of whatever color, are confessed by all but the careless or inhu man. Tliejioorerand more lielplepsour friendsare in that particular part of the country, the more urgent is our auty to oetnena them according to the best of our ability. But shall we do it by such a measure as that described in the message? Is there not a better way ? The Freedmen's Bureau is ia existence now, in full force throughout the South. A mighty and almost irresponsible power is vested In its agents, in vry many places It is sustained by garrisons of colored troops. And yet we hear of outrages upon the persons and property of the freedmeh. The incapacity of the Bureau system to watch over four millions of people is already dem onstrated. General Howard has well said that his is the bureau of impossibilities. Wi may multiply agents, augment their au thority, and increase the military force at their disposal, and yet we cannot guarantee to millions scattered over the South, ex emption from Insult, or immunity from ma licious enmity. There is the terrible antag onism, the ancient prejudice of race, and the bitterness that rankles after defeat, that all the bayonets of all the armies of the Union cannot overcome. Jackson, thecar ital of Mississippi, has a military garrison and; a supply of agents of the Freedmen's Bureau, and yet our correspondent at that point does not assure us ol the happiness of the negroes of the town, out complains sharply or their in treatment; ana so it Is in many other places. When Beccher indorsed the policy of President Johnson as "apt, fitting and most wise, he said, in suostance, that all the ap pliances ot power would be comparatively unavailing ior tne protection er tncircea men, if the good will of the whites of the South were wanting. Obtain this good will, and the wciiare ot ootn races is secur ed and the restoration of the Union an ac complished fact. Without it, there is con. stant trouble, and no adequate remedv tor the grievances of the weaker race. That we can not reach the desired end through the merely restrictive and coercive process, is plain enough to all who have profited by the lessons of history, or who are studious-, ly observant of the daily experience Of the country, rne rresiuenc oeneves mat a trustful and generous policy would .'be re sponded to gratefully, and have results vin dicating its wisdom .as a measure of phi lanthropy as well as a proposition of States manship.' It is a misfortune that the dis agreement in sentiment between thti Ex ecutive and Legislative departments of the Government, has prevented a satisfactory test of the virtue of magnanimity in per forming the most auncuit task of restoring the KepuDiic, alter agreatcivit war, and protecting a newly-emancipated rsoe from those who have for generations beeav their rinnrAofinrft...- -... u -i... i'; ' r,..., The negroes mus learn to take,; care of themselves, ana fue i'resiaeut la entirely right when be ar.ys that they can, attain condition of respectability and,, prosperity only through their own exertions, and thq query that be puts la a most pertinent one,, whether the system proposed, by, tha bill 'will nor, woen put into complete operation, practically transfer the entire care, support and cpntrolof four millions of emancipated slaves; to agents, overseers or task-masters, who,' appoiuted at Washington, are to be located in every county and parish through out the United States containing ireedmea i and refugees. Such a system, would Inevl- . i 1. 1 . . i. . . . , tauiy wnu to eucij a concentration pi power In the Executive as would enable him. if so disposed, to control the action of a numer ous class, and nse them for the attainment -of bis own political ends." - Jt can not be overlooked that if the President had follow ed the Radical programme, insisted upon enforcing the right of the' negroes to vote In the South, disfranchised the whites of the same section, and filled the country with, agents to take care of the negroes, be would, have had about a hundred votes .in the Electoral College In tils own band. : . Whatever comes of It, the veto has killed the bill, for the necessary two-thirds vote to pass it, notwithstanding the objection of the President, could not be obtained in, the Senate; and the Intelligence of this re sult was received with such an uproar el applause in the galleries that they were, aa .on the day before, at the conclusion of thej reading of the President's message,' cleared ! I The exercise ot the veto power is looked', upon by many as almost an act of usurp) tion, but the tendency of popular assem-. blages to an extravagance not usually ' found In one man vested with exacting tb Bponsibilities, has often been remarked, and ' the value of the veto to check, the exagm gerated development of a sentiment, Is rec ognized by the cool and judicious. ,Con- 1 gress has needed an admonition that the ' will of its majority was a distinct thing ' from the fiat of Omnipotence ; that there ia ) another department of the Government, and ,, the people above all, to be heard from. We are hopeful the veto will have the effect to" give more sobriety and wholesome practi cability to the, . business of legislation ; t and serve as an admonition to gentle-, men who are truly solicitous for the civ- ' II confirmation of the military success of the national cause, to abandon the leader ! strip of those who would waste the ener- , gles of the State upon things impossible, and devote themselves to the accomplish- " ment of the greatest attainable good. " i Whether the President's plan will be ad- ,, equate for the protection of the freedmen Js , a question, the determination of which by great numbers will be decisive as to sup- ' porting or condemning him. Many objec tions may be urged to any plan. All are : necessarilv imperfect. There will be suf- , fering and wrongs to endure by the blacks ' of the South, at the hands of those who ' have been their owners, whatever we do; and the problem is to modify the evils for . which we have no unfailing rerredy, by the process that combines the greatest de- 'e gree ol efficiency with the least ' expense. Whatever experiments are tried, the Iron grip of the military is still wpon the South, and the President tells us he is "already armed with the powers conferred by the act of March, 1SG5, establishing the Freed- men's Bureau ; and hereafter, as heretofore, he can employ the land and naval forces of the country to suppress insurrection and to overcome obstructions to the laws.". Democracy. In 1S37, Hon. Wm. Allen, then a Senator . elect to Congress from Ohio, concluded a'1'1 public speech as follows. The sentiments 1 which the extract contains are as truthful ' as Holy Writ: , . "Democracy is a sentiment not to be ap palled, corrupted or compromised. It knows no baseness; it cowers to no dan- "I ger; It oppresses no weakness. Fearless, .'t generous aud humane, it rebukes the arro- , gant, cherishes honor, and sympathizes with the humble. It asks nothing but what it concedes; it concedes nothing but what." ' It demands. Destructive ouly of despot- 1 ism, it is the sole conservator ot liberty, la bor and property. It is the sentiment ot , freedom, of equal rights, of equal obliga tions. It is the law of nature pervading the law of the land.
