for t&t'ereetion, for their , benefit, of suitable buildings for asylums and schools; the' expenses to to de frayed ) from .tbe treasury of . the wholo people. The Congress of the United States has never heretofore thought itself competent to estab- 1.1 1 1 ..I'll 1 , t Jish any laws beyond the limits ol the District"' of 'Columbia, except for the benefit of our disabled sol- and sailors. It has never schools for any class of our own people, notevenforthcorphans of those, who have fallen in defence of the Union, but has left the care of their education to the much more competent control of the States, of comnlunities,of private associations and of individuals. It has never deemed itself authorized to expend public money for rent or purchase of homes for the thousands, not to say milions. of the white race, who rre honestly toiling, from day to day, for their subsistance. A system for t lie support of in dignant persons in the United States was never contemplated by tlie authors of the Constituton. Nor can any good reason be advanced why, as a permanent establishment it shbuld be founded for ; one class or color of our people more than for another Tending the war many re- fugees and .freedmen received sup port from the 'Government, but it was ' never ' intended they should henceforth le fed, clothed; ediwat ed and' sheltered 'by the' United States. ' ' The idea on which the slaves were assisted .to 'freedom was that on be coming free they would be a sclf fiiistnijniig population, and any leg-' islafjoh that shall iniply ' they are not expected' to'atta'ln a .self-sustaining, condition, must have a'ten-1 den6y injuribus'alike to their char- acter and their pibsperify. The ! appointment ol an agent for every f county and parish will, create an immense patronage, and the ex pense of the numerous officers and 7t 1 1 ' 1 . 1 1 I. A 1 their clerks to be appointed by the President, will be great in tho be ginning, with a tendency steadily to increase' ' ' The appropriations asked, by the Freedmen's Bureau, as now estab lished for the year 1S05, amount to $11,745,000. ' It may be safoly es timated that the cost to be incur red under the pending bill, will re quire double that amount, more than the entire sum expended in any one year under the administra tion of the second Adams. If the presence of agents in every parish and county is to be considered as a war measure, opposition, or even resistance, might bo proposed so that, to give effect to their jurisdic tion, troops would have to be sta tioned -within reach Of every one of them and thus a larges tanding force be rendered accessoiy. : Large appropriations would there fore be required to sustain and en force niilitaryjurisdietion in every country parish from the Potomac to the Kio Grande. The condition of our fiscal affairs is encouraging, but in order to sustain the present measure of public confidence, it is necessary we practice not merely customary economy, but, as far as possible," severe retrenchment. In addition to the objections al ready stated, the fifth section of the bill proposes to take away land from its former owners without any legal proceedings being first had ; contrary to that provision of the Constitution which declares that no persons 6hall be deprived of life liberty or property without due process of. law. It does not appear that the lands to which this section refers may not be owned by minors or persons of unsound mind, or by those who have been faithful to all their oblig ations as citizens of the United States. If any portion of the land is held by such persons it is not competent for any authority to de prive them of it. If, on the other hand, it be found that the property is liable to confiscation, even then it can not be appropriated to public fiurposes until by due process of aw it shall have been declared for feited to the Government. There 'are' Btill further objections to the bill, on grounds seriously af fecting the class of persons to whom it is designed to briag relief It will tend to keep the mind of the . the freedman in a state of uncer tain' expectation and restlessnessji while to those among whom he ! lives, it will be a source of constant and1 vague apprehension. Un doubtedly the freedmen should be, protected; but they should be pro tected by the civil authorities, es specially by the exercise of all the constitutional powers of the United States and of the States. His condition is not so exposed as may at first be imagined, lie is in a portion of the country where his labor,,can not well be spared. Competition for his services from planters, from those who are con structing or repairing railroads, .or from other States, will enable hira ! j ded. " - . - In truth, however, each State in tliers duccd by its own wants and inter founded , ests, will do what is necessary and proper to retain within its borders j all the labor that is needed for the i development of its resources. The to command almost his own terms, lie also possesses a perfect right to change his place of abode, and if, therefore, ho does not find in one community or State a mode of life suited to ins uesircs, or proper re muneration for his labor, he can move to another, where labor is t mora esteemed and better rewai laws mat regulate supply and de mand will maintain their force, and the wages of laborers will be regu lated (hereby. There is no danger that the great demand for labor will not operate in favor of the lab orer ; neither is sufficient consider ation given to the ability of the freedmen to protect and take care of themselves. It is no more than justice to them to believe that as they have receiv their freedom with moderation and forbearance, so they will distinguish themselves by their industry; and they feel and will soon show the world that in a condition of freedom they are self-sustaining and capa ble ol selecting tlicir own .employ ment and their own places of abode; of insisting for themselves on a proper remuneration and of estab lishing and maintaining their own asylums and schools.. It is earnest ly hoped that instead of wasting nway they will by their own efforts establish for themseves a condition of respect ability and prosperity. It is certain they can attain to that condition only through their own merits and exertion. In this connection the query .presents it self, whether the system proposed by the bill will not, when put into complete operation ; practically, transler the entire care, support and control of four millions of em ancipated slaves to agents, over seers or taskmasters, who, appoint ed at Washington, are to be locat ed in every country and parish throughout the United States, con taining freedmen and refugees, such a system would inevitably tend to such a concentration of power in the Excutive which would enable him, if so disposed, to con trol the action of a numerous class and use them for tho attainment of his own political ends. I can not but add another grave objection to this bill. . the Constitution imper atively declares, in connection with taxation, that each State shall have at least one Representative, and fixes the rule, for the number to which in furture times, each State shall be entitled. It also provide Hint the Senate of tlie United State shall he composed of two Senators form each State without its pecu liar lorcethat no State without iU consent fliall he deprived of it suffrage in the Sen ate. The original net was necessarily pass ed in the absence of the States chiefly to be affected because their people were then con tumaciously engaged in tlie rebellion. 'ow tlie ease U changed, and sonic, nfleast of the States are attending Congress bv the loyal representative, soliciting the allow ance of tlie constitutional right of represen tation. At the time, however, of the con sideration and passing of the bill, there was no Senator or .Representative in Congress from the eleven States which are to be mainly nfl'cc.ted by its provisions. The very fact that reports were nnd arc made against tho good disposition of tlie country, is an additional reason why' they need mid should have representatives of their own in Congress to explain their con dition, especially as to accusations, and as sist by their local knowledge in the per fecting of measures immediately affecting themselves, while the liberty of delibera tion would then be free and Congress would have full. power to decide according to its judgment, There could then be no objection urged that the States most inter ested had not been permitted to be heard. The opinion is firmly fixed in tho minds of tlie American people that there could be no taxation without representation. Great burdens are now to be borne by all the country, aud we may best demand that they shall be born without a murmur when they are voted by a majority of the repre sentntives of all the people. Iwonltlnot interfere with the unquestionable right of Congress to judge, each House for itself, of tlie elections, returns and qualifications of its members; but that authority can not be construed as including the right to put out, In time of peace, any State from the repre sentation to which it is entitled to by the Constitution. At present all the people of eleven States arc excluded, those who were most faithful during the war not less then others; the State of Tennessee for instance, whose au thorities engaged in the rebellion, was re stored to all he Constitutional relations to the Union by the patriotism and energy of her injured and betrayed people before the war was brought to a termination. They had placed themselves la relations with the General Government, had established a State government of their own, and ad they were not included in the emancipation pro clamation they by their own act have amended their Constitution so ns to abolish Slavery within the limits of their State. I know no reason why the State of Ten nessee, for example, should not fully enjoy her Constitutional relations to the United States. The President of the United States stands towards the country in a somewhat different attitude from that of any member Cougress, chosen from a single district or State. The President is chosen by the peo ple of all the States. Eleven States aro not at this time represented in either branch ol Congress, It would seem to be his duty on all proper occasions to present their lust elalnies to Congress. There always will be difference of opinion in the community, and individuals may be guilty of transgressions of the law, but these do not constitute valid objections against the right of a State to re presentation. It would in no wise interfere with the discretion of Congress with regard to the qualifications of members, but I hold it my duty to recommend to yon in the interests of peace, and in interest of the Union, the admlsslou of every State to its share of pub lic ii-"ii;iiioii, wnen, nowever insubordi nate, insurgent or rebellious Its people may have been, it presents himself, not only in au attitude of loyalty and harmony, but in the persons of representatives whose loyalty can notoeouestioneel under oxlst. lug Constitutional or legal tests, it is plain mm, mi iiuicnmce or permanent exclusion of any part of the countrv from rvnnwoiitji- tion must beattendt'4 by a spirit of disquiet uuu cuiiii;iii. t ins unwise anu uangerou to pursue a i-uiiiu oi iiiciisiircs which will unite any lai-jsw weiiou oi me country against auoth er section ol tlie country, no matter how mucntiic latter may predominate.

C., Feb. 19, 1866. "WUITI? MEN SHALL RULE AMERICA." McARTIUJK, OHIO: THURSDAY, - "FEB. 22, 1800 THE NEWS. It is reported that Senator Doo little, of Wesconsin, will introduce a new Freedmen's Bureau Bill,that will incorporate the President's objection. According to report, Mr. Seward has written a letter to our Minister in France, in w hich he denies the assertion in the Emperor's speech, that our Government had been in vited to join in the Mexican inter vention before the introduction of French troops in the army of Max imilian, . There has been a large and en thusiastic meeting at Lancaster, 0. to sustain the President's veto. The telegraph informs us that General Butler has been forced to disgorge and pay over to ' Smith & Brothers, of New Orleans, the 80, 000 in gold he absracted from them while he was in New Orleans. The telegraph is about a week behind the Enquirer, which stated the fact a number of days ago. The Republican State Conven tion in Inciana meets at Indianap olis to-day. It is- thought there will he a great fight between the radical and conservative Republi cans upon the question of revolu tions. There will be an imposing pub: lie demonstration in Louisville to night to sustion the Presidet's veto An injunction was issued against Thurlow Weed and others, tore strain them from disposing of cer tain privileges granted by Sec retary Stanton to build a telegraph line from New Orleans to San Francisco. Last night at Columbus,the Demt ocratic caucus resolved unaimously io indorse the President; but the Republican caucus declined, and resolved to sustain Congress. From various portions of the country we have the inteligence of joy and 'satisfaction among the masses at the firmness of the Presi dent in vetoing the Freedmen's Bill. Meetings are being held can non are lired, and general congrat ulation manifested all over the country. We regret to learn that the wheat and fruit crops are reported killed in nearly every part of Illinois. Our special from Washington very fully gives a review of the in tense excitement in the capital yesterday over the veto message of the President on the Freedmen's Bureau Bill, and the proceedings in the Senate down to the vote when it was declared that the bill was not passed. Senator Wade, cf Ohio, during the session, presented a resolution to amend tho Constitu tion so as. to prevent any one from holding the oflice of President for more than one term.' He then commenced an abusive attack on the President, and said, that if Jeff. Davis had -occupied theposition that Andrew Johnson now docs the former could : riot wish a more thorough distribution of favors to red-handed rebels and traitors than the latter has granted. The vote, taken on ' the freedmen's bill, re turned by. the President, to : the Senate, stood yeas 30, nay8 11, and tho Vice-president announced that the bill was not passed. . Tho Supreme Court of the Uni ted States, with one dissenting vote alone (that of Chase), has resolved to resume . the consideration of cases from the .Southern States, which were discontinued before the war.. This is the recognition of the highest judicial tribunal that those States have resumed their functions in the Union. , . The Democracy of New Haven, Conn., lired two hundred gunn yes terday in honor of the President's veto. ' It- is reported that Secretaries Seward, McCulloch, Welles and Dennison supported the President in his veto of the Freedmen's Bur eau Bill, and that Sccresary Stan ton dissented and sent in Jus re sigantion. Some, five hundred post-offices have been opened in the Sautheru States within the last two weeks. The New York Herald's Havana letter says the Mexican papers con tain full accounts of the sezuire of Bagdad, and express the hope that tne united (states will make repar ation, ana tnus remove the neces sity for a declaration of war. A Scared Old Sinner. We endorse the following from a cotempoary, who says: "Tuad. Stevfns is in a bad way. He said yesterday: "There is an earthquake around us," and he trembled. The earthquake was the veto message of the President. Thad. trembled, for that message was the death- knell of the radical party. He is Jiot as philosophic as the chap old Noah would not let into the ark who went off declaring there would not be much of rain after all.. Nor is he as fearless as Lincoln, who de clared he was not "scared a hooter" when the rebels wero threatening Washington. It is not the first time he felt an earthquake and trembled. He felt one at Harris burg, when, to save his life, he jumped out of one of tho windows of the State-house and ran like a scared deer for his hotel. Years have produced no change in his morals or principles. Jle is as un scrupulous now as when he endea vored to defraud a majority of the people of Pennsylvania out of their just ; representation in- the Legislature. No wonder the old sinner trembles.' We hope "Presi dent Johnson "will keep the ground shaking under his feet. His dry bones be made to . rattle at short intervals to .remind him that he is not omnipotent." ' i Who are Union ? There are thirty-six States in the Union ; consequently, there are sevehty-.two Senators. One-half of this number is thirty-six. Two thirds is forty-nine. The radicals have not to exceed thirty-one or two members. : They have less than half of the Senate, if all the States were represented. Yet they talk, of excluding, hy force and violence,: eleven States, and then setting up the pretext that they are two-thirds of the remain ing rump, and so passing all their retaliatory , measures, . We Bhall see if this game of exclusion and violence can succeed. VTOTH'E.
