THE NATIONAL REPUBLICAN, FRIDAY MORNING; APRIL 6, 1866."

It wu hissed at jqm toldlin, and youreltlaens, and ilood abroad m th expression of all that wai low and un worthy.

The honorable Benetor wu greeted, with loud and continued applana. Leaning forward, h said. Bow ara youT There art ft good many of yon down thtr. I have beta expecting yoa for torn time. (Laughter.) 'What did yon com for? Laughter, and a voice "Eight boon a day. Well, It It rather a Ut boar for that. My friend i, I bar teen speaking tbti afternoon a good deal, and 1 shall detain yoa to lay ft few wordi only. I asked yoa what yon wcr her for. 1 wnt homo a few dayi ago, and when within t wen ty.fi ve mile of my dtfttaatlon I mat an old fanner la th cart, who laid to ma: "Cowan, bow ar yoa getting on la Washlngtonr "Hot rery welL" Said be, "What th deril la tb matter? Why don't tb Union re itora? What If wrong" Going on a llttU far ther, I mtt an old aoldier, who mad tb tarn ia qalry: "What ti wrong' Tb Union won't reitort. Didn't wt whip thoi fellowi dowa tht re? Didn't w mak thoe fellowi lay down their armi and obey tb lawef" "CerUlnly." "Then what ti th reason tbe Union won't restore" Farther on I met an old fellow, with ft long part and a good many bonds. Said b: "Cow am, what la wrong I loaned tbia Government a good deal of money to I carry on tha war, and what la tha raion th Union won't witor" Now, that la a tremtndoaa qoee tlon. Think of K. A parcel of bad people ia 1S60-O1 undertook to deitroy thla Union. W re listed, aa w had a right to do, on th ground that wa bad th right to mak everybody obey th Con futation and th lawa. Bat ther wai another thing w aatd at tb lamt tlm W aald thli la not a movement of tb popU. It la a movement of politician! and demagogue, who want to rule or ruin tht nation. Why? Did tht aatloa rtr hurt anybody? Never. Thar la not a maa who could aay b had a alnglt grltranc to rtdreaa or ft atngl wrong to areng. Mot on. It wu a movement of demagogues who took ad Tan tag of th election of aomebody tb people did not want la the South, of tb excitement of the moment to carry thoe States oat of the Union. Ve said, therefor, thla la not tb work of tb people. We matt go down and reaeue the people, and take them out of th olutehea of thea fellowa, who-would drive them to their own ruin We bad a right to do that, aad we made all that terrible war, not to punish the people, not to op press or mak stares of them, but to rescue tbem from the power o'f th rebellion Into which tbey bad been drawn. We succeeded la that, and the people war thankful. Tbey alt agreed to lay down thttr arma, comeback and be good aubjects. Ar not tbey doing that now Hare yoa beard of any reslataaee to the Government tlnee the surrender of th rebel army? The President him self, a few dayi ago, Issued a proclamation that all waa quiet, not only along th Potomac, but everywhere else Laughter and cheers. The people, beaten la war, dealred again to en Joy tb benefits the Union conferred upon tbem Sat they cannot bar them, and what Is the re a son 7 Why my eloquent friend who last addressed yon baa told yoa what the reaion was. IUdlcallsm Is th reason. Aad my friends, what reason does U bring ? Wbas Idol does It worship T What star does It follow T What flag does It march under ? Radicalism will not let the Union reator. When tb people ask why yon do not restore the Union tb reply Is, "Oh noj not yet." Why not? What's wrong ? Tb negro must votej that's tb whole of It. Legutr, and cries of "That's It." These fellows at the capltol will restore It to-morrow If yoa will allow the negro to Tot In tb South, a quostlou with which w bar nothing whatever to do. If they want to argue th question, let thtm go up Into Pennsylvania. The negro does not vote there. "Not a tit or It." If tbey want to argue that question, let them go out to Florida. The negro does not vote ther. If they want to argue It, Jet tbem go to New York. lie does not vote thsr unless he is a wealthy darkey Great Laughter. Let thtm go Into Massachusetts and argue it there. lie does not Tote there unless he I ia a literary darkey. Continued laughter. My friends, I repeat that wa lnCoogress have nothing whatever to do with tbia question in th I States more than yoa people In the District of Co Jumble have. The Statea which formed this Union are fro States. Tbey were free States when tbey made the Union, and tbey ar free Statea yet It was the pride and glory of our fathers to cement a gtortous l -, . . ..... ,l..j c.. vJ Now, wherein consists the freedom of a State r loa Union like this and still allow tne States to be ire w'U all agree that a State woald not be free If aome body outiidt were permitted to come lo and say who should b Governor, who elected to Congress, who lec!d to the Legislature, who elected sheriffs and constables. Then, if there be nobody outside a free Btato who the power to say what men shall be elected to office, neither Is there anybody who shall say who are to be made electors, beoaase, If yoa will gift m tb right to say who shall vote, I will very quickly ttll you who shall be oleotel. In this country those wbo vote are In the bablt of electing tbe officers, and for persons outside to say who shall L . .! I-L.. mtmltmM MA tfl AKAKa M A V flf V I H fW ;i.Ti;;tarsi.iVii. office. I repeat that w bar nothing whatever to do with that question. Tb States of this Union sue free States We have a central Government, and to It have been delegated certain powers care fully laid dowa and enumerated In the Constitution. It Is Just aa if a doien gentlemen here were to meet together to form a partnership, rules are laid down, arvJeles of copartnership are entered Into How long do you think such a purtneribip wuut 1 be likely to lait if on member was allowed to sny, v ttt ..a m.H..i all mtnvn wav anil annllnt.

"1 Ys, that's It. I always Ilk to get a little gcd bard Eogllsh la. Laughter Well, who opposes thll doctrine? They say tbey tr ft Union party Th Union party fellowa wbo ( say they ar for th Union but will not hart it la not that a singular Union party? Ii it not flaying Union party with tb Union left out? Ia It not repetition oftheptayofllamlet with Hamlet lf oat? Bat tbey ar ftboslv 'tllows too. Just as my frlead hr said. If yoa want ft Uulon upon tbbasla on whloh It wu eonetrnetedi if yoa propoa to aismd upon 1b agree me ot which wu mad, tbey ITn J0 w CwwhM' W7dG not want I to kill all the woman aad children lath South, they say yoa ar a ecoesh, yoa ar a rebel. Did ver anybody bear of such scold ? A great many peo pte have thought that Lin colv was a better aatured man than Joiatov, It has occurred to me that after listening for throe or four years to tb abas of theae people, h would have been disposed to bav pieced them upon tb cooking-tool. There waa a out tore In old England, that wbea a woman acquired ft babtt of scold log beyond eaduraac, she wa placed upon a stool called ft cook log-stool, aad ther sfa lat, th object of the Jeers and derision of boys, and sometimes of thos who ought to bav known better." These people cannot keep peace with anybody. They caonot agree with anybody. If yoa eould only pat them Into ft pen by themselves th fat of th Kilkenny cats woald b theirs. Ther would be nothing left In a short time but ft few talis lying about over the floor. Tbey will not have Union aow because they do not want It i and why? I will tell you. They have behaved io outrageously during th last four years, so overbearing, as If they bad all the patriotism In their belly, that tbey know very wH that th peopl of th South cannot love tbem that Is utterly Impossible. They never bad any charity for those people, and baring gone Into rebellion, ther would see men, women, and chil dren, loyal and disloyal, all goto the lame bottom. It wai not the fault of tbe people of th South that th rebellion came. A majority of tbe southern people were not for It, and If this Government had done its duty and put dowa tb rebellion In Its In ccptlon, ther would bav been no war. ' Tbat'a so." But her yon bad Congress fighting at on end Of the avenue, just as they ar fighting now. You had a President at the other end of th arena wanting to do on thing and Coogress another aad while they were engaged fighting each other, the Southern propagandists and Knights of the Golden Circle were left free to act with bo fore to oppoee tbem, aad what eould the people do? What do theae people up at the Capitol propoae to do now? Td Inflict their punlshmeat upoa tb Innocent iaitead of th guilty. They say yoa cannot restore the Union now. Why? Because rebels will get back to Congress. Well, suppose they do com. Is ther no way of keeping them out? If a man comes her claiming a seat In Congress who Is a rebel, a traitor, a leader who Incited th peopl to rebellion, wool d-t here b bo way to avert tbe terrible calam ity of his taking a aeat In Congrere ? I would not find any difficulty In preventing It I would not aek the President or Congress how to keep him out. I rould take out a warrant and arrest him under tbe law. If be were a traitor I would have htm arretted and punished. I would let the courts, the marshals and th Juries do tbetr work and after you hare hung a man as a traitor he woald not troable yoa mach about getting Into Congress. Laughter and cheers. Oh, no, they do not want the Union or law restored, they wantsomethtng els. What waa th proposition they Introduced into Congreea the other day? Tbey said "Let as for glT the peopl down South." Well, suppose yoa do. What will yoa require la return Let the negro vote. That Is about the whole of it. These red-handed traitors caa come back If yon will let the negro vote. Tbey will swop off tbe right to punish the criminal, If yoa will only give tbem tbe vote of the negro. But, yoa may ask, why do you want the negro to vote? Because If you allow the negro to vote he will vote for us. Exceeslve laugh' ter. lie will vote for us, and there Is nobody else down there who will. Continued laughter. We bar behaved toward th whtte people so outrsge ously that there Is not one of them who loves ns. That la tbe whole secret of It. I do not see any difficulty npon that point. I have no personal ant moslty against anybody down there, and there Is no reason for Indulging In any such feeling, except so far as those people keep It up. But that Is the explanation of the whole matter. There are two or three gentletnen-.lt has beome so exceedingly unpopular to name anybody tint I will not say who they art I do not want to throw tbe careasies of dead dogs Into that assembly. "How tbont the dead dnek.' I do not mention anybody but her Is a man, and her are four or fir millions of people down there, not on of whom loves that man. Then he Is dead. No man can be bated by four or fir millions of peopl without be log dead. Think of It. I should dislike mon strouily to be bated by two or three little boys la this crowd, and now much more by lour or five mil lions of men, women and children. Tbey are de termined this Union shall not be restored so long as these people hate them, and tbey have no more hope of ft change In that respect than you have. Do you suppose they care about the negro They know the negro never can be brought In contact with white people and compete with them. Tbey know Just as well as we know that w ire stronger, richer and more powerful than he, and that he can- not compete with us In any of the great business transactions with which we are brought in contact. But admit, If you please, that ha Is stronger than you are and wiser, still this la not bla country) It Is your country. He Is here as a kind of stranger. You cannot eat with him, drink with him, sleep with him, or marry with blm. Laughter and cheers I say, then, that no true friend of the colored man will bring him face to face with th white man in any struggle In which we may b engaged Why should he be brought there7 It Is but to eipoie him, to your greater strength and power. Then why should he vote? What good would voting do him ? lie has either got to have a party of his own, or elie to mix himself with two or three of your parties. If be bad a party and tb majority, do you think he would elect any w bit man to office? A voice, "He would eleot ft radl eal '"J Not by any means, lie would not touch tbem with ft ten-foot pole. Sam Is ft good deal too sharp for that. He un ' derstands too well how he has been uaed for years as i .. . a hobby for them to rid on Into office, If he ever gets them off to ever allow himself to take them on again Laughter. J Go Into Liberia, where be has a country of bis own, and see whether he will per mit any white man to vote there. Not at allj his constitution says that nobody shall vote unless he has African blood In his veins. Why? Because be does not want to expos you to th defeat of coming into competition with his superior race. Laughter. I am a friend of his. I have protected him very often, and it is because I am a friend that I say It Is a shame to undertake to bring these innocent ! r?!'rvmrM""r''" ill Inev. Itftblv follow being brought Into contact and com petition with the white race The negro is one of tb happiest dogs in lb world. Give htm a cabin ' In a corn field and Dimau to lore, and he does not I care about politics. Not a bit of It. As I aald L. j for, th only difficulty about restoring tb Union la in tbia party which Is not a party after all. The radicals never had a party I was years ago an old Whig, and tbey were alwaya annoying ua Those abolltionlsta did nothing but scold and flod fault with everybody. Tbe Whig party was rather "-or. f.Tor.bl. to tb.m tb.o tb. I).Boot.tlo p.rt bu' W U. "No, noj w. mart h... . wb.ol.lof or no bread." And when we wanted to eleot Ciar lD7 "P " weir owa. 4 Voim Blrney. Yea, that waa tht man. Tbey got ft few thoai- and votea for him enough to defeat Clay, and that was all It came to. Then when tbe war came on they came out very strongly. They went to work, and wuet did tbey do? Staid at borne, scolded, and mad troable among our own people. Very few ef tbem went to the war. The man who fought went Into tht contest for tbe Constitution and th laws, and not upon any hobby or scheme of reform, to turn a black man Into a white man, or anything of that sort. They fought for the flag, and they were th men who did tb fighting, But these fellows war exceed- Ingly JaIoul. Thy wer Try nthaslastlc, mad speeches, wrot pamphlets, and all thatiort of thiog. Of oouri there wu bo ObjMtlou to tht( nothing wwci U It. Now that th wu I over they aay they bav abolished slavery. Why, gentlemen, they never abolUhed anything. Laughter. Tbey never abolished slavery, nor anything ela that ever I heard of, unless, pvrbape, th us of eommon ans by themselvee. Perhaps tbey may abolish them selves on of thee dayi. Th men tbey have abused ft hundred timet ar tb men wbo abolished slavery. Tb slaveholders thsmselv'es did tenfold mor to abolish It than they. If tb slaveholders bad been satlsflfd to allow matters to remain quiet, they would bav bad their slaves to-day. It would bav been Impossible t overthrow It. But they united with tb politicians la tb war, and It wu tha soldier wbo abolished slavery, not th speech maker, or th proclamation-maker, wbo parades blmaelfher u th person wbo bu accomplished It. Well, now, slavery ts abolished, aad what mor do yon want ? Everything these people want, when you bring tbem down to tbe point, la that th negro shall rot. They pretend they want to gtr blm civil rights. Wo hav gtrea blm all tb civil rights w hare. W Bvr stipulated to go to the extent of over turning a Stat to gtr blm rights. W brok th fetter from tbe slave and left him Just like on of us, free to go when h pleased. If be did not like bts muter In the District of Colombia b eould go to Maryland. If be did not like Maryland be could go to Pennsylvania, Just u I would.go, and I might be aver so bard pushed under certain circumstances u to go to Musuhusetta. Laughter. If the negro la not In th right Stat he may go where be pleasea, and that la personal liberty. It Is the liberty w bav conferred upon lb black man, and ft thing of which I am proud. But I will not go to the extent of overturning the liberty of tbe States and cent retiring this Government, putting the whole number In tb bands of Congress and the President here to bo wielded for Improper purposes. I resist It now u I hare always. As I aatd before, ft gentlemen bu Introduced a proposition which says: "Yoa may do Just what pleas, provided yon give us political power and let the negro vote They Introduced a proposition the other day, la wbleb tbey said: "If yoa will glv up th right to fifteen or sixteen members of Con grass, yoa may do what jou pleas. W do not car anything about negro rights or negro iuf frage.' The proportion now la, if you will let the negro rote that will leav us a chance to continue our political power. That Is about as near the aub atanc of tb propoeltlon u I can state It. A voice "It la near enough," Do yoa know that w ar struggling for the greatest stak In th world 7 Gentlemen say tbey will hold tbeie people as ft conquered people. What do you want to do with them' If yoa were a mon archy or an ariitocracy, yoa might find It to your advantage, but u ft republic will yon be any better off for It? Is not tha thought Itself wicked and atrocious If It were poailble of execution? Tbe Inhabitants of tboae States ar of our blood, of our kith and kin. Tbey are your cousins, your bro there, your friends, your relations, and do you suppose tbey caa be held long as a conquered peo pie? In thli war, when we were right and they were wrong, what a terrible struggle it was. Did yoa not have misgivings u to th result up even to the day? Then, when It happens that tbey are right and yoa ar wrong which tide will Uod be on ? Gentlemen, we must conciliate, restore and har monise those peopl. We must forget our differ ences la the paet and endeavor to lire In peace and harmony u one people. I say It Is the greatest stake for which any people ever struggled. Thla la, tht greatest Republic tbe world has ever seen by far, If we can maintain It In Its integrity. Do you suppose we would be In tbe smallest danger from France, England, or any other nation If we are re stored and stand together u b ret hern and American cttlsens9 Not a particle. But Ut this Potomao river be th dividing Un that shall cut off eleven Slates from the Union, deprive tbemof their rights, and will they fight for you? When tb time comes, and the time may come to morrow, who will they fight for to-day ir there Is trouble? Will It be for the radicals? "No, no."J I tell you, gentlemen, ther la one man In tbia nation wbo la the great bond of Onion, and that Ia your Prealdent. Great enthusiasm Tbey will fight for blm) and why ? Simply be cause when tbey were conquered be treated tbem as a generous man would. lie did not kick and cuff and abuse tbem. He said It ts alt over. Let us be friends and have more sense next time. That ts the proper way to do. It Is tbe only way frank, boneit, liberal, humane men would treat a fallen foe. Suppos yoa treat them otherwise, and a war with England or Franc should occur, tbey would keep the blockade opent and If they fought against us, where would this Union b ? They bare half a million or as good fighting men as there are In tha world, and could we go Into a war with such an odds? Would not our soldiers say. We have con quered these peopl once; hav brought them back Into the Union, and If w bring them back again. will you be any nearer ft settlement after another war than now ? I cannot see how you could caVry on another war under theee circumstances. Tbe dictates of wisdom are that you admit them at once; that yoa take them back and let us bare one common republic one mora, tb greatest, u I have aatd, upon which tb aun ever ahone. Now, fellow.ot tissue, I have addresaed yoa longer then l intended. An old tellow a Greek, I be lie re once said that a grea't many people could commence a speech, but very few could end one I thank yon for your kind and respectful attention. I have great hopes when I look over this half-acre or mor upturned faoes that we will yet save the Union; that we will yet see this great Republic I bare described pieserved for the future, I am proud to say to yoa that, according to my best Judgment, your present President Is the man for the work. Applause. Trust htm, and he will not fall yon. He will do the work quietly and gen tlemanly, u a man and a gentleman should do. The Senator retired, greeted by tbe pro longed cheering of the audience. Wo are obliged to postpone the publica tion of (Jen. Smith's speech until to-morrow. Being the last made, it was, of course, the last written out, and was, we regret to say, furnished too late for our Issue this morning. Unlike such speeches generally, however, it will keep, and will be read with interest. It was one of Gen. Smith's finest efforts. At the conclusion of his speech, Gen. Smith offered the following resolutions : 1. RttoUtd, That we are now, u heretofore, ar dently attached to the I nlon of tbe States under the Constitution of th United States, and that ws have always held, aad do aow hold, that no State ever had the right to secede, and that those that attempted to do so still remain States of tbe Union and are not In tbe condition of Territories. 2. iUioivtd, That we hare th almost confidence In th ability, patriotism, and Integrity of I'reil dent Johnson, and that w approve and endorse bis restoration policy 8, JUtoiwd, That we ar opposed to any attempt onth part of .the General Uovernment to fore unlvensLjaffrage upon to peopl of any Stat or Territory against tb known will of th loyal peo. pi thereof u unconstitutional, impolitic, and an Juat. i, lUtolvtd, That all loyal members from any of the States duly elected and returned to tbe Con gross of th United States should be admitted to their seal without delay, alter taking the oath prescribed by Congreis, known u tbe test oath. Rtioived, That tbe gratitude of th American people Is eminently due to our gallant soldiers and aallora who fought tbe battles for the suppression of tb rebellion and th preservation of the anion of tbe States. Th President remarked that on solitary man baa voted no. I will feature that he li either a radical or ft rtboL Aa Preildent of this vait u ismbly, I dsohu tb resolution! unanimously adopts with OBI only dtiiiatlaj toJm, Apellate, It li thought, from the lateness of th hour, that apeaklng should cs, I dtttr to add one word before we adjourn. We, brethren of the church of the Union of Amdhw Johmoit, the loyal patriot! church, proposed to bold a series of camp meeting la Washlngtoa. We will adjourn to-night to meet at the call of our Ex ecutive Committee, which will be shortly again and, fllow-lttsns, let as at that meeting not fatl to bav tb spac ta front of both thee wlnga will filled. Let all th people comet let the men come, 1st th women com, let the children com, tet rebels aad radicals come, let negroes eome, let everybody com aad hew th trae Uatoa gospel preached. I bow deodar thli meeting adjourned. The IIon.Mr.STitxwKLL,M.O., of Indiana, and other able speakers who were announced. were present, but tho lateness of the hour prorentcd them from addressing tho meeting, which was. In whole and in all Its part, a complete success. Ttt Ifew York Evening; Poet Kelt mat of f had flttvene Tho Now Tork livening Pott writes thus of the Intolerant Stiviki: "Ills Intern Derate manner and Intolerant anlrlL bts vehement language, and tb vindictive charac ter of bts ftrorlta meuures seriously inersase th difficulties of 'reconstruction,' and needlessly cause disputes and divisions In tbe party to which the people wifely committed tbe task of rearranging what tbe rebellion had deranged. Mis chievous as we bell ere him to be, w doubt If bis ascendancy will be broken until Congress and lb peopl receive from another source unmistakable evidence of aqual tal and determination to secur th tads they demand, by other and wiser meas ures."

"ine real mtsronune is experienced, not by tbe Radicals, but by tbe Union party, which for the time suffers from tb power exercised by Mr. Stevens In the Iloune. Tbe party as a whole Is hetd accountable for the etna of Its radical members; Us nsefulnets Is lessened, Its Influence u a peace maker in the South Impaired, and its bold upon tbe respect and confidence of the North weakened, by each succeeding development of th policy which Is exposed and resitted by tbe President Tbe lepeotk taught three days ago by Connecticut ahould be enough to aatlify all of th extent to which th Union cause ia damaged by the coune of tbe extremlsta in Congreis.

Tho simple announcement that the loyal people of this city would meet in council to sustain the policy of President Jon.f box, called out thousands of our best citizens, and the vast spacp In front of the City Hall was packed solid with sincere and patriotic men. This grand gathering of our people was not due to cannon, drum and fife, torch-light pa rade, engineering, or management. It was a hearty and spontaneous rally of tho people. Like Its cotemporary(the great meeting at Cooper Institute, which as addressed by BecretariesBKWARD and Penxisox, this assem blage was essentially a Union affair, gathered to hear Union speakers, and responding to Union sentiments. No ono connected with its organization had any other than sound Union antecedents. Kachof the distinguished gentlemen who spoke, voted and labored for the election of Abraham Lincoln and An drew Johnson in 18G1. Tho addresses breathed a spirit of earnestness and unmis takable loyalty, and pleading again, as here tofore, for the noble principles which had been vindicated both at the ballot-box and on the battle-field, tho eloquence of patriotism stirred tho concourse to the utmost bounds of enthusiasm. The resolutions are to the point, and the number of those who approve them in this country Is legion. Wo regard this meeting as a significant demonstration in favor of The President' policy within the Union ranks. A voice bos gone out from the Capital rallying tho sup porters of tho war on the Baltimore platform, around tho honored prmciples which they have made national by success. The people do not forget their ow n deliberate acts w ithin two jcarBj they will respond again, as they never failed to respond, in upholding the Con BtH ntlon and tho sunrcmacv of the laws..

Now, after timo enough has elapsed to en able tue falsehood to reach Kur ope, greatly io i no injury oi mi i-rkjidknt. lue truth is made known that The President did not do what was alleged.

Mr. Johnson said, that In th dlacnailon ef th bill before tbe Senate, tb question was not strictly a legal on. There ar qaeitlons of policy to b considered qaeetlonaof expediency. The objec tions which th Freidsnt makea to th bill In re turning It without bla approval, relet as well to tbe expediency of the measure a to Its alleged un constitutionality. Th purpoa of clothing tb President with the veto power were to guard hi own department against encroachment by any other) to guard tha Statea agatnat a Ilk Influence, and to guard the Individual el t liens also. Ia ad dltlon to thee objects, on of th purpoa of th Convention was to guard against inexpedient and HI -eonitdered legislation. Looking to wliat had taken place In the Congress of tbe Confederacy, and to what had occurred In the several Stat Govern menu, th member of the Convention f 1787 were satisfied that It waa juat a necessary for tbe public weal to protect tbe country 'against Inexpedient legislation, or almost a necessary aa It wu to pro tect it against noconaUtutlonal legislation. It has heretofore been denied by some, and doubted by others, whether the President Is Justified In nslng th power except npon constitutional grounds. That principle wa urged by the leading members of tbe Whig partv, at the head of which stood Mr. Clay, when they beoame very much dissatisfied with tbe exercise of that power by th then President of the United States, (General Jeekeon.) The fact then called th attention of Mr. Madison, lie x preaeed hla opinion on It la a letter written with the ability which alwaja marked hi writings, dated on tbe 15th of October, 1834. Mr. Johnson here quoted from tbe latter referred to, and continued The honorable member from Illinois, Mr. Trum bull, seems to suppoae that he finds aa valid oh Jeotiona to tbe exerclae of thla power by the Preal dent in inia instance, in me iact mac me out passed received the votei of more than two-thirds of the members of each Home, and he cited In support of that doctrine a speech delivered by the Preildent when he wae a member of this body In 1857 and 'oo, in eeoate, pernaps, wer loiucea oy wnat Iia ajf Tmn. flint anAAAti In ltnVA that ft)i T'raat dent stated th principle to be, that a bill passed- by a twa-imrds vote could not constitutionally be subjected to the veto power. If he bad read the latter part of tbe same sentence he would hare found that tb President Intended no suchtblog. Tbe soundness of the doctrine x pressed In that speech cannot be -questioned. Mr. Johnson, when be was a member of this body, merely aald that the fact that a bill waa passed by tb majority rendered necessary for the parpoa of overruling a veto, was a reason whv he should very cautlooflv applv tbe f io wer for Its exercise. But, ao far from Its being n the Judgment of the Senate, a It certainly waa not In tbe mind of Mr. Johnson at tb time, that a bill belog passed by that majority plaoed It beyond tbe veto power, the honorable member's Mr. Trum bull answer to a question whloh I put to hlfn shows that in tbe judgment of tbe Senate tbe veto power waa properly exe relied, aad m bill which In that in- atanc had been passed by mor than two thirds of bolb Houses did nos become a law, as many who had voted for the bill changed their rotes under tb lnfleent of th President's veto message. Mr, Johnson proceeded at great length, aad with fk rret t ef in aut wro legas greaaoa.

The Committee on Military Affaire reported that while full cower was alreadv veated In tha Presl. dent to establish cemeteries for tbe Interment of tbe remains or union aoldlera wherever h might deem it advisable, yet tbey thought It but proper that a suitable appropriation should be made for tbe furcnaae ot ground ana ror tne enclosure and lay eg out of the same.

Mr Paine, of Wisconsin, was of opinion that th ease hinged npon the question whether the Invalid ity of the regtiter of th Fifteenth district of lb Eighteenth ward wsa a sufficient rrouod for tha re jection of the official return of the canvassers for mat euiiriot, ji nem thai toe register waa worm. less, and t Its worthless character reduced th amount of proof necessary to Invalidate th returns) but b did not think that, In ItseK, U waa declslr of their Invalidity, tn the absence of proof ef illegal votes or unlawful proceeding at the poll a. If tbe re tarn i of tbia district are not aet aside, Mr. Brooks retains his seat . Mr, SpatdlngTofOhld, eiprened his etn vie tlon that neither the sitting member nor the eonteatant had established a title to the aeat eufflelently clear to afford the Horn a bast for settling thli eon teat. Mr. Brooks, of New Tork, then took the floor In derenoe of his title to the seat which he held. He opened his remarks by alluding to the embarrass ment wmon ne leic in carrying on contest uxe thla. In which he wa opposed by a man of almost boundless wealth and resources, whose annual In come exceeded three hundred and eighty-four tnousand douars, whose gains amounted to nrteen hundred and nlneteen-dollara every day of his Ufa, and who received four dollars and eighty cent with every breath that he drew. The election which waa now tbe subject of dispute wu one of the hardest contested which tn all his long experience he had ever known. It took place in a district which contained a vast amount ot wealth, a well aa a very targe population of tbe poorer class, n waa sorry to say that a large proportion of th voters who represented the wealth and property of that dlitrltthe moneyed class tbe men of Filth avenue uau opposed ni election ana nea given tbetr support to bis opponent. Mr. Dodxe. while. on the other hand, th laboring population the nara-naiea woraing men and meenanics tn arti ficers whose industry aent our vessels out npon ever? sea these had riven their an snort tn him IMr. Brooks. Tb contestant had seen fit to avail tlmself of this fact to Institute a comparison be tween tbe superior 'intelligence" of hla own sup porters and the "Ignorance'' ef those who had voted againat him. He Mr. B. had no comments to make upon this classification of the constit uency whom the contestant assumed to represent. ue was willing to let tbe Eenllcman'i classification go before those constituents that tbey might pro nounce upon Its justice for he would say that he expected to meet the contestant again hereafter not bare, but there (in tbe Eighth Congressional uisingt f After Mr, Brooks had spoken something? over an hour, and before he had oonoluded his remarks, he gave way for a proposition to adjourn, and the further considers lonof tbe subject was postponed until m-morrow. Mr. Bandy, of Ohio, offered a resolution declaring that whereas there are In this city a large number of persona calling themselves claim agents and axT Burning to hav peculiar facilities for the collection of cltlme against the Government) and whereaa It is wen xnown mat some ot these persons bav la their hands a largo number of claims, some of which tbey hav collected and the proceeds of which tbey refuse to pay over to the claimants: therefore tb Committee on the Judiciary ar instructed to re- fort a bill to more fully proteot soldiers and sailors a getting their claim a adjusted, by providing that such dishonesty on the part of any claim agent shall be considered aa embesxlement and punishable as such. Mr. Farnswortb, of Illinois, advocated the Imme diate adoption of the resolution a an act of Justice and mercy to the poor soldier. The Speaker remarked, for the Information of the House while on this subject, that one of thesectalm agent had applied to blm for tbe nse of hla (th Speaker's) name for reference, which had been pos itively reTusedj and vet Jn spit of thla refusal he foold that the elroufara of thla agent, naming htm among other referees, had been sent broadcast over th country) aad of late he had been much troubled In having to answer a number of letter from sol die re who wrote to htm Inquiring about tbe agent In querllon. The resolution waa adopted.
