Ia a coDTersation with Got. Cox, President
" Johnson declared that hs TO "not opposed to
the ides of the Freed men's Bureau in iota, for
he bad need it and was still using it It might
'continue for a period of mors than a year, yet
he had contemplated that either by a proclama
tion of his own, or by some action of Congress,
the condition of peace, the technical ed of re
bellion, would probably be declared at some
period not very remote, and as he understood
the present law, the Bureau might continue a
year from that time. Meanwhile, he could say
to the South, it depends upon yourselves to say
whether the Bureau shall be discontinued at an
earlie day, for I will put an end to it just as
soon as you make it unnecessary for the pro
tection of the freedmen." ' '
In regard to representation in Congress, the
President said that he "would admit only such
Representatives at r i foot loyal men, giving
satisfactory evident of this. Whenever a State
or district sent a loyal man, properly elected
and qualified, he would think it right to admit
him, the same as from any other State, and he
would admit none but such loyal men, so that
other States or districts may be thus induced to
elect and send similar men."
The President was also of opinion "that leg
islation could properly be made by Congrets,
purely civil in its character, providing for the
protection of the freedmen by the United States
Courts of inferior jurisdiction, in all cases where
the States did not do so themselves." i'T-s .
Finally, Mr. Johnson professed that "his
whole heart was with the body of true men who
had earned the country through the war, land
he earnestly desired to maintain a cordial and
perfect understanding with them." .. .
8 wallow these pellets, ye ''loyal" copper
heads! If you can retain them in your mori
bund systems, even you may yet taste the joys
of political salvation. But we have little hope
that you will really take the dose. Your en
dorsement of the President extends to those
points only in which he differs from the great
mass of the true and loyaL By flattery, you
would draw him away from his real friends and
commit him to your schems of treason and
party aggrandisement. From this letter of
Gov. Cox's, we infer that you have not yet suc
ceeded in jour wicked purpose. -
Li July, 1884, the United States Senate
passed a bill to exclude the eleven rebel
States from voting for President, and from
representation in Congress until Congress
shall have declared the termination of the
rebellion. Tho bill read as follows: -
That when the inhabitants of any State have
been declared in a state of insurrection against
the United States by proclamation of the Presi
dent by force and virtue of the act entitled-An
act further to provide for the collection of du
ties on import", and for other purposes," ap
proved July 13, 1861, they shall be, and arc
hereby declared to be, incapable of casting shy
vote for electors of President and Vice Presi
dent of the United States, or of ekctiDg Sena
tors or representative! in Congress, until said
insurrection in said State is suppressed or aban
doned, and said inhabitants have returned to
their obedience to the Government of the Uni
ted States, nor until such return to obedience
shall be declared by proclamation of the I'res
dont, issued by virtue of an act of Congress,
hereafter toie passed, authorizing the same."
The bill passed the Senate by 26 votes,
among which were Reverdy Johnson, Mc
Dougall, of California, and Riddle, of Del
awarethree Democratic Senators and
Doolittle. and Morgan, who now seem to
have experienced a change, and Mr. Har
lan, a present member of Mr. Johnson's
General Howard has received a number of tel
egrams from Assistant Commissisoners in the
so-called restored states They represent that
the veto is hailed by the enemies of the Govern
ment with much jubilance and enthusiasm, and
that tbey have become troublesome ; also,, that
. disorders and outrages are increasing. They
state that the civilians and agents of the Bu
reau are paralyzed, and request the Commis
sioner to detail as agents true and tried officers
of the Union armv. The freedmen, under-
standing from the enemies of the country, that
the Government protection is to be withdraw!,
are uneasy and disposed to leave the States.
' The Coneressional Judiciary Committees, it
is understood, have agreed to report back to the
House, favorably, Mr. Stevens' bill in relation
to tenure of office of Presidential appointees.'
4 The bill ptovides that no removals from office
can "be made by the President, except by and
with the consent of the Senate. The bill, if it
passes, will be vetoed, of course.
The President has had a conversation with
Gov. Cox, of Ohio, an authorized report of
which has been given to the public. This af
fords some ground1 for hope that Mr. Johuson
does not intend to desert the party that elected
him ; and we venture to say that the Copper
heads on reading it, will arrive at the conclu
sion that they were too iast in "indorsing his
policy " ' The policy as thus announced they
certainly cannot indorse, without undergoing a
great change of heart. The idea advanced that
the Freedmen 's Bureau bill is to be maintained,
and that none but truly loyal men are to be ad
mitted to Congress, will especially prove dis
tasteful. " -
Mr. Elliot, of Massachusetts, has introduced a
.new Freedmen's Bureau bill into, the lower
house of Congress. It extends the act under
. which the Bureau was created for five years,
and instead of dividing the whole country iuto
districts, it authorizes the appointment of two
additional Assistant Commissioners to those ap
pointed under the existing law. The bill ia
-some of its details is guarded against certain
objections made by the President to the former
bill It. however, retains the Sea Island sec-
tions intact, and also the principle of extending
i military jurisdiction over all the agents and
. officers of the Bureau, , .;; .... .... ,. !
A letter has been received in Washington
from Major General Custar, dated Austin, Tex
as, in which he denies the statement, published
in December, that he has been making seces
sion speeches. He says: "I have made o
Kpeeches since coming to Texas, and if I had,
my voice would not have been raised in sup
port of and in sympathy with the statement and
the doctrine of ex-rebels, whose hostility to the
Government is now as strong and openly man
ifested as at any time during the rebellion.' I
hope my course during the war will be accept
ed as bearing me out in this statement.'' .
Rogers, of New Jersey, delivered a speech in
Congress, on Monday last, in which he de
nounced the' Union members, and particularly
the Reconstruction Committee, and took the
ground titat Vongrese had no power or right' to
prevent tlie payment of the rebel debt, and that
South Carolina had the same right in Congress
as Eew York. He is the speaker who-"de-
nounced Mr. Lincoln to the crowd before which
Johnson made his notable speech on the 22uV

WASHINGTON,D.C, Feb. 21st,1866.
The conflict between the President and Con
gress has at length commenced with full force.
The storm has teen long gathering, and the
evidences of its certain and rapid approach
have been multiplying daily. The Message of
the President, vetoing the Freedmen's Bureau
Bill, has fully opened the conflict. The Bill
was supported by every union member of both
branches of Congress, receiving in the Senate
the very significant vote of 35 in the affirmative
to 10 in. the negative. And yet strange as it
may seem, humiliating as the fact may be,there
Were found no less than six Senators who sup
ported the bill on its first passage, and were
willing to acknowledge themselves the syco
phantsof the Executive by voting against its
kmmh nn iMMrHiT' Br wotine for the bill
on its passage, and then against it simply be

clared more forcibly than words could express,

dictatation of the President, had no opinions or
principles of their own, and were willing to sac

altar of Executive patronage 1 hey were

WASHINGTON, D. C., Feb. 23d,1866.
Your readers are doubtless aware of the fact
that there was a very large and enthusiastic
meetine- vesterdav at Grover s '1 heatre to en
dorse the policy of President Johnson. It is a
tact ot mucn signincauce, iubi iuc tuccwug no
pollen tin. attended and addressed almost whol
ly by copperheads and rebels.
. A plain and truthful statement of the pro
ceedings of that meeting, is sufficient to show
' L! J :J tlinni IM
to any uuuiaseu unuu, (jicvi.t; " ......5- -
The call for the meeting 'Was published In
and endorsed by the InttUigencer, the Constitu
tional Union and the Star, neither of which ev
er supported the' Administration of. Abraham
Lincoln, nor gave any aid or encouragement to
the Union army, while in the death-struggle
with red-handed treason. A siugle glance at
the list of speakers, the manner in which they
spoke and how they were saluted by the crowd,
will suffice to condemn the cause which called
them out as unworthy of the support of all loy
al men. . . 1 -
Immediately after -the organization of the
meeting, the crowd broke forth in the most
vociferous and wild calls for Voorhees, of Indi
ana the Vallandigham of the Hoosier State.
Sam. Cox and J. .Rogers, Copperhead Repre
sentative from New Jersey, Mr. Hendricks, Cop
perhead Senator from Indiana, Messrs. Aiken
and Canipitt, the Attorneys who volunteered to
defend Lincoln's assassins, and many others of
like character and reaord, among whom were
several distinguished rebels, were the orators.
Mr. Cox triumphantly referred to the fact
that the President was a " Democrat, la the
course of his remarks, he referred to J udge Kin
ney of Utah, who had attempted to be heard,
which gave the crowd to understand that he
was a Republican. The J udge then attempted
to speak, but was greeted with loud and indig
nant hisses and shouts of. "put him out." All
this arose from a suspicion of the audience that
the Judge was a Republican, and not until he
had assured the crowd that he was rftt nor ever
had been a Republican, wa9 order again re
stored." 1 i- ' ' '
Mc Rogers responded to the wild calls of the
crowd by a most wanton and wicked attack up
on the administration of Abraham Lincoln, and
the most bitter denunciations of the test oath.
He demanded, amid the tumultuous applause
of his hearers, that the Southern Representa
tives and Senators should be admitted to Con-
gess without taking the "odious test oath."
e had evidently hit upon the inspiring theme,
for the. audience seemed carried away with en
thueiasm as, he proclaimed these sentiments,
and denounced the administration of the mar
tyred President.
Mr. Cox in his speech, expressed his regret
that there were so few Republicans present,
but added that the few Union men who were
engaged in this movement must be used as
skirmishers, while the great Democratic party
would act as the reserve corps. This was an I
important fact forcibly expressed, and the Union
men who are inclined to embark in this enter
prise, should remember that they are only to be
used as a cats paw, to catch the game for cop-'
perheads and traitors.
Among other things the meeting adopted a
series of resolutions, which had been, prepared
and printed in the office of the Constitutional
I'nion before they were presented to the crowd. '
The crowd then proceeded to the Executive
Mansion, where they were, addressed at great
length by the President. Of this matter I have
but little to say. The speech has gone to the
people, who will resd it with sorrow and amaze
ment ' : ; "' ' ' '
,-. Everything in connection with this speech,
the crowd which he addresseJ, the men by
whom he was accompanied rebels at heart and
In practice as wcjl as the spirit and diction it
self, were all ro at variance with the emanations
of the White H0U&9 heretofore, that one views
it with consternation and regret. Humiliating
as is the fact, the President is rapidlv destroy
ing the dignity which heretofore attached to
the Unlet Magistracy. 11 is a paimui picture,
upon which we dislike to dwell, and from which
we turn with humiliation and grief, 1).
: The Committee of the Georgia Legislature has
ad Jxessed a letter to Ex-Gov. Joseph E. Browo,
inquiring what legislation, in his opinion, is
proper for the freedmen of the State. The Ex
Governor replies that it is injudicious to pass
any freedmen's code or any law that discrimi
nates between the races, so far as the courts are
concerned, aud tells them all they want is a
short statute, extending the provisions of tho
nenal code to all persons of African descent,
and extending to them all the civil richts en
joy ad by white persons.

for an amendment to the Constitution prohib
iting the re-election of the President, and pro
viding for the event of his death; -upon which
proposition he he addressed the Senate at length.
A bill was introduced to protect African chil
dren from kidnapping under pretense of ap
prenticeship. A bill was introduced from the
Finance Committee to facilitate the settlement
of the accounts of the United States Treasurer.
A resolution was adopted directing an inquiry
how far the Rebel States have complied with
the President's terms of reconstruction. The
Freedmen's Bureau bill wit then taken up, and
the President's veto considered. Mr. Trum

any of the eleven States heretofore in insur
rection, until Congress shall havedeclared such
States entitled to Representation. A minority
report by Mr Grider in favor of the admission
of Tennessee was permitted to be read, but its
reception waa objected to, and Mr. Stevens
moved the previous question. Dilatory mo
tions and points of order were thereupon re
sorted to by the minority, and persisted in un
til 7 o'clock, when this effort to filibuster was
abandoned, and under the operation of the pre

which was the resolution for a Constitutional
amendment, and to take up the House resolu
tion excluding Rebel claimants from seats in
Congress. A debate followed upon points of
order, which terminated by the reading of the
House resolution for the first time, and Mr.
Dixon then objected to its being read a second
time, which objection the Chair sustained.
Mr. Feessendan then gave notice that he would
call up the resolution on Friday the day to
which the Senate had agreed to adjourn. Mr.
Lsne of Kansas gave notice that on the same
day he would introduce a bill to continue in
force the existing Freedmen's. Bureau. The

The resolution and substitute were laid on
the table. Both Houses have adjourned over
till next. Tuesday, as to-morrow is the Anniver
sary of Washington's birth-day, and as this is
the week for the regular three day's recess.
The conservatives and copperheads are doing
their utmost to get up a mass meeting here, to
endorse the President's veto message.' If they
succeed, few Union men will have anything to
do with it. It will be nothing more than a
Democratic affair.

speech delivered by President Johnson, to the
copperheads and rebels of Washington, on the
evening of the 22d ulL :

tion of the Union of States, and I am free to
say to you that I am still for the restoration of
this Union. I am still in favor of this great
Government of our going on and following
out its destiny. A voice "Give us the
names." . .;' '
A gentleman calls far their names. Well,
suppose I should give them, a voice "we
know them," I look upon them, I repeat it,
as President or citizen, as much opposed to the
fundamental principles of this Government,
and believe they are as much laboring to pre

fought against the United States. A voice

sinuated, and not only insinuated, but said di
rectly, that the intimation, has been given in

had been exercised two hundred years ago, in
particular reign, it would have cost a certain
individual his head. What usurpation has An
drew Johnson been guilty of ? None! None!
The usurpation I have been guilty of has al
ways been standing between the people and
the encroachments of power; ano because I
dared to say, in a conversation with a fellow
citizen, and a Senator too, that I thought the
amendments to the Constitution ought not to
be frequent; that their effect would be that it
would lose all its dignity; that the old instru
ment would be lost sight of in a small time
because I happened to say, that if it was amend
ed; Such and such amendments should be adopt
ed, it was an usurpation of power, that would
have cost a king his head at a certain time,
laughter and applause, and in connection with
this subject, it was explained by the same gen
tleman that we were in the midst of an earth
quake; that he trembled aud could not yield.
: Yes, there is an earthquake coming. There
is a ground swell coming of popular judgment
and indignation . That's true. The American
people will speak by their interests, and they
will know who are their friends and who are
their enemies. What positions have I held
under this Government, beginning with . an
Alderman, and running through all Dranchesol
the legislature. A voice "from a tailor up.
Some gentleman says I have been a tailor.
Tremendous Applause. Now that does not
discomfit me in the least, for when I used to be
a tailor, I had the reputation of being a good
one, and making close fits. Great laughter.
Always punctual with my customers, and al
ways did good work. A voict! "no patch
work." No, I do want any patch work. I
want a whole suit But I will pass by this lit
tle fact business. My friends may say you are
President, and you must not talk about such
things. When principles are involved, my
couuirynteu, when the interest of my country
is imperilled, I will act as 1 have on former oc
casions, aad speak what I think. I was saying
that I had nearly all the positions from alder?
man, through both branches of Congress, to
that which I now occupy, and who is there,
that will- say Andrew Johnson ever made a
pledge that he did not redeem, or made a prom
ise that he did not fulfill. Who will say that
he has ever acted -otherwise than infidelity to
the great mass of the, people.
They may talk about beheading and usurpa
tion, but when I am beheaded I waut the Amer
ican people to witness. I don't want, by in
uejidoes, by indirect words in high places, to
sec the man who has assassination brooding in
his bosom enact, that this presidential obstacle
must be gotten out of the way. I make use of
a very strong expression when I say that I
have no doubt the intention was to invite as
sassination, and so get out of the way the ob
stacle, from place and power, whether by as
sassination or not. There are individuals in
this government, I doubt not, who want to de
stroy our unity as a fit libation to the Union of
these States. Great applause. But let the
opponents of this government remember that
when it has poured out the blood of the mar
tyrs it will be the seed of tho church. Cheers.
Gentlemen, this Union will grow. It will con
tinue to increase in strength aud power though
it may be cemented and cleansed with blood.
Are they not satisfied with the blood which
has been shed? Docs not the murder of Lin
coln appease the vengeance and wrath of the
opponents of this Government? Are they still
unslaked? Do they still want more blood?
Have they not got honor and Courage enough
to obtain their objects otherwise than by the
hands of the assassin? No, no; I am not afraid
of assassins attacking me, when a brave and
courageous man would attack another. I only
regard him when he would go disguised, with
his footsteps noiseless. If it is blood they
want, let them have courage enough to strike
like men. I know they are willing to wound,
but they are afraid to strike. Applause.
If my blood is to be shed because I vindicate
the Union and the preservation of this govern
ment in its original purity and character, let it
be shed. Let another Union be erected; and
then if it is necessary take me and lay me up
on it, and the blood that now warms and ani
mates my existence shall be poured in the
State a State not embraced in his proclamation.

The impression generally prevalent, that Hon.
Freeman Clark, Comptroller of the Treasury
Bureau, on account of his connection with the
administration of the Treasury Department af
fairs, coincides with President Johnson's views
of reconstruction, ia erroneous. He differs with
him entirely on the question of the immediate
admission of the rebel States, believing that the
' result will be srl attempt on their part to repu
diate the national debt. , . . , .
" The Provost Marshal ef Freedmen at Mobile,
Alabama, publishes a letter ia referesce to out
rages upon the colored people, and the attempt
of the rebel papers to represent them as com
mitted by United States troops. He says :
"For the past four months the average number
of cases coming before the Bureau bas been
about 400 per week, of which about one-fifth
were for assault, robbery, murder, and attempt
at murder. - Such criminal horrors are almost
universally the acta of citizens. In fact, dur
ing all this time,'' but five cases have come be
fore the Bureau, in which white soldiers were
the aggressors in such charges."
