X)ua Sir I regret to seo fierce denunci
ation of . President Johnson by a portion of
tho Republican press of Illinois. The motives
which prompt this I do not propose to In
quire Into) bat the Jacf Itself I) well calcu
lated to excite our wonder. From the be
finning of our unhappy war, Mr. Johnson has
ecn one of tho nrmoat, staunchrst, and
bravest of the friend of the Government
ontof the ablest defender 6f l(s cause. He
htsdone raort.perflqd more,and suffered more'
fori the country than any ,pf ,hl , rerilen
more than many of them combined. He
sacrificed friends, fortune; time and health,
and pnt his life at hasard to defend the Con
stitution and preserve the Union, VhlUt those
who now so flippantly denounce him as a
traitor, were, most of them, rcsaot from the
tlicatro of war; In the bosom of peaceful com
munities; sccuro from danger; and in the full
enjoyment 6f the ease, comfort, and pros
perityof domestic life,-and for which they
were, in part, Indebted to his hcroia, efforts in
tho common causo of the country. What
ever may be thought of his present pobcy,
tho memory of the past should have protected
him from the coarso abuso which has been
lavished upon him, and tho imputations of
treason which heated partisans have not
blushed to make, Xo candid person who
knows the President will doubt or question
his patriotism, the perfect Integrity of his pur-
(loses, or the earnestness and sincerity of his
ntentions to adopt and pursue such measures
as will redound to the highest good of the
entire country. Hut his policy finds its
strongest support In its inherent wisdom and
justice, and its conformity to the Constitu
tion, and to the principles which lie at tho
foundation of our entire structure of govern
ment, lie adheres now to Die doctrines which

tho people shall be fully informed what his
policy is, to Insure to it their hearty approval
and support. What then is his policy, about
which so much Is said, and upon which so rauch
passion Is expenucu I i give j ou a s nopsis
of what I understand it to be, as gathered
from his public declarations :
1. lie Imagines thai no one or more States,
less than tho whole, can rightfully dissolve
the Union, and that therefore the ordinances
of secession which assumed to accomplish
that result by carrying a portion of the States
out of the Union, and absolving their people
from their obligations to the Constitution
and laws of the Union, were absolutely null
and void, and that, notwithstanding the ordi
nances, the States which adopted them re
mained in the Union, and the peoplo as sub
ject to the authority of the (jcncral Govern
ment, in an tilings, as idcj nereueiore. inn
was the very Issue between loj alty and rebel
lion This was the Issuo upon which we
fought and triumphed this the vexed ques
tion of three quartersof a oentury, winch was
definitively settled b) that triumph. Through
all the war ever) department of the Govern
ment acknowledged and acted upon this as
the true constitutional doctrine President
Lincoln, in all his messages, proclamations,
and other State papers, whenever he Ld oc
casion to allude to the rebel States, spoke of
them and treated uiera aa mates in tne
Union. Congress, in all Its legislation, rec
ognized them as such, Included them In the
apportionment of representatives under the
census of I860, distributed them by law into
judicial circuits, putting some of tho States
whfoh hnil Atteinntpd to secede with loval
Mates, in the same circuit, and apportioning
the direct tat among them as States Their
votes were counted as States upon tho con
stltutlonal amendment, and were recognized
and reouired as necessary to its adoption
I ne riuprcmo uonri ai an times uau cases on
Its docket irom mo mates in reoeuion, anu,
from time to time, at vo advanced into the
territory, and overthrew tho usurping gov
ernments, the President apportioned Federal
judges to administer tho laws of the Union
in such States, None of theso things could
have been done If the States were out of the
Union Indeed, the war itself can bo justified
nn no other theory than tho integrity of the
Union and tho nullity in tha ordinances of
secession. If the ordinances were null and
void, as all loyal people maintained, then the
States never went out of the Union, but are
in it still If Iho ordinances are not null and
old. then thej are valid, and tho States went
out lawfully, and if they had a lawful right
to go out, wo could not, at tho same time,
have a lawful right to make war upon them
to compel them to stay in. Such an assump.
tion would bo absurd
Again, if tho ordinances wero not null and
void, but actually dissolved tho connection
between the States nnd tho General Govern
ment, they equally absolved the peoplo from
their allegiance, and withdrew them ircm the
jurisdiction of the General Gocrnmcut, and
tho people of the States so withdrawn could
no longer be traitors or rebels, ami m could
have no pretence of right to make nar upon
theiu to coerce obedience to a Government to
which they no longer owed alleg'ance
2 The I'resinent maintains mat trio war
was prosecuted for the purpose of putting
down armed resistance to the authority of tho
(!o eminent and preventing the disruption
of the Union, and that theso objects hai ing
been accomplished the war is at an en I
3 That the States being still in the Union
and the people of thoso States no longer
ben g in rebellion, but having ceased resist
ance and submitted to the authority of the
Constitution and laws, they aro entitled to
be again placed upon a footing of equality.
In all respects, with the other Mates of tho
Union, as wo cannot In our form of govern
ment, havo States with gradations of rights
under tho Constitution,
4. That to civo them this equality they
must be represented iu the National Legisla
ture
5 That that representatlonmust be bytho
men tbey thoose to elect for that purpose, as
no other power can appoint Senators and
Representatives for them, and that unless
they are represented by tho men of their own
choice thev cannot be renrescnted at all
6 'I hat whenever the people of any of
those states, In accordance witn too require
ments of the Constitution and laws, elect
Senators and Representatives who arewilling
to tako tho oaths prescribed by tho Consti
tution and laws, thev ouirht to be admitted-
leaving each Ilouseat all times at full liberty
to judge of the elections, returns, and qualifi
cations of the members applying for admis
sion. That is a matter with which the Presi

Will a more favorable or auspicious time ever

field to make them stay in the Union, and
now that they havo yielded to tho demand,
and avow a willingness and wish to do all we
required, we ought not to fight them In Con
gress to mako them go out.
One of the greatest perils' wHch threatens
ns now is the tendency to centralization, the
absorption of the rights of the States, and the
concentration of all power in the General
Government. Whon that shall bo accom
plished, if ever, the days of the Republic are
numbered. Constitutional government will
bo supplanted by a centralized despotism, to
be succeeded, iu time, by revolution, disin
tegration and anarch). Within it tbe consti
tutional spheres the btates are as sovereign
and supremo as tha General Goi eminent In
its stiherc. and safcU is to be found onh bv
confininir each Atrlctlv to Its aDDronriate
orbit The danger is in the encroachment of
tho General Government upon tbe powers of
the States, and tho tendencies aro now all in
that direction. Ihc, States ore powerless to
ink ode tho domain of the Federal Govern
ment, and it is t ital to the preservation of.
our admirauie lorm or government mat tne
States shall be fully protected hi the posses
sion ana exercise oi an ineir constitutional
rights, functions and powers. If tho Federal
Government usurps them, the Constitution,
which the fathers of tho Republic framed
with so much skill and wisdom, fails of the
purpose of its creation, 'and wjir no longer
protect tue rigius it w as nucnueu to secure.
The bills familiarly knowu as the Frecd
mans Bureau bill and the Civil Rights lull,
both of which were vetoed by tho President,
went far in this direction. Had they both
become laws, and both been executed, the
powers of the State governments would bare
been substantial!) overthrown whenever they
oDcratcd 'lhc State tribunals would have
been, to a very great extent, superseded by
thoso of Federal appointment, and they of
tho very worst type r enteral military, incy
would soon have found pretexts and means
to intermeddle with and control most sub-
ircts of me re local and domestic concern.
Had the President failed to assert bis veto
power, ho would have but poorly discharged
his obligations to tho Constitution. It would.
In mi iudirment. be difficult to frame bills
more in conflict with the letter and spirit of
tlio tjonstitiition vv ncn mo passion anu ex
citement of the hour shall have passed aw a),
it will bomattir of astonitment that good
and able men were found to advocate them
I ciuinot now go into the details of these
bills The veto messages state the objections
to them with grout force and clearness Iloth
bills make, to some extent, a privileged class
of the negroes lloth enter tho States dis-
plai iug htuto laws and Stale tribunals and
control und resulato affairs of a purely local
and domestic character. Now, 1 sm unable
to find in tho Constitution any authority for
such legislation Congress possesses no pow er
except wuat is expressly conicrreu iy tue
grants of the Constitution 1 he power to le
gitlate in respect to tbeintcrnal and domestic
affairs of tho States ii not ono of them This
vi as withheld for the wisest of reasons, Tho
possession and exerciso of such a power by
the General Government could not fail to
result in frequent and dangerous collisions
between State and Federal authorities, which
sooner or later would certainly dlsiupt tho
ties which bind them together I am not
aw ore that any one objects to the negroes
having all the civil rights for which tho bill
nrovides. but thev must hold them, as other
persons do, in subordination to tho laws of
tho States where they reside
'1 lie very first section of the first article of
tho Constitution provides that "all Icgislo-
tlvo powers herein granted knau ne vested in
a Congress of the United States, which shall
consist of a Senate and House of Represent,
atives," and no other legislative powers are
vested in Congress, except such as are fAeron
arantttl Tho eighth section of the some ar-
tide enumerates tho granted powers, all of
whlcn relate purely to national auairs to
subjects in which all the Mates, and all the
peoplo of all tho States, have a common In
terest None of them can be tortured into
an authority to Congress to Intcrfiro with
the internal and domestic affairs of the Btates,
or to tako charge of the privato rights of any
portion of tho peoplo of a State. All such
matters are reserved to the States and the
neonlo thereof
The tenth amendment to tho Constitution
provides that "tbe powers not delegated to
tne united mates oy tne vonstiiu;ion, nor
prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to
the States respectively, or to the people "
But I believe the nower to nass the laws In

of the recent amendment to," the Constitution

This fs readily shown by Inquiring what class
oi persona -was' emDracea in ana acted npon
by the amendment. Tbey were such person
aa were, held in bondage at tiio date of its
adoption, and such only, , ,
nese constituted only apart or the colored
people ortlic United States the largest part,
Iris true but still only a nart There were.
in addition, all who were free at the begin-'
nuig,ot wc.war, ana an wno naa uccn made
free during tho progress of tbo, war, from Its
beginning down to tho adoption of the amend
ment. Those who were free when tbe war
began, and those who were made free before
the amendment of tbe Constitution, consti
tute a, very larco class, none of whom were
embraced In, acted upon, or In any manner
affected by the amendment,' yet they aro all
embraced in the bills, and 'legislated for by
authority claimed to lie derived from a con
stitutional provision which has no reference
to them, or influence or operation upon
Uiem
If the ower of legislation can bo derived
from the constitutional amendment at all,
such legislation must clearly be limited to
the class of persons embraced in tbo amend
ment, and cannot be extended to others, quite
outsido of its prpvislons, and not at all af
fected by it.
Again, what was the amendmentt What
did it profess to dot Whatdidit actually dot
Jt found a large number of colored persons
of African descent held in bondage as slaves,
and it emancipated them from that bondage
and rave thent personal freedom. This was
all; it did nothing moreit claimed to do
nothing more. Now, the full extent of the
legislative power of Congress, under tills
amendment. Is to pass sucli laws as may be
necessary, if any, to secure to the persons
emancipated by the amendment their per
sonal liberty.
Tho only right conferred by the amend
ment is the right of persontl liberty ; bat the
Civil Rights bill goes much further, and under
claim of authority derived from an amend
ment, wnicn is resinctea to personal liDeny,
confers other rights, beyond tho scope of
amendment, not necessary incidents or per
sonal liberty, and not necessary to its enjoy
ment. White persons under tbo age of
twenty-one years, and married women, arc
free white citirens in the enjoyment of per
sonal liberty, but not in possession of all the
rights conferred upon colored people by the
bill. Tho rights thus conferred arc not ne
cessary to the enjoyment of the right given
oy mc constitutional amendment, una con
gress could not, therefore, derive from the
amendment any power to pass tho bill.
But further, neither of these bills was ne
cessary to secure the colored people In tbe
enjoy uient of the right of personal liberty ,
which was the only right they were Invested
with by tho amendment.
lliefr means of protecting that were ample
and sufficient without further legislation.
When a riirht is conferred, all the incidents
necessary to Its enjoyment are conferred with
it; and colored persons havo the same reme
dies ror an invasion oi meir personal uueriy
that white persons have. If a white man be
restrained of his personal liberty, he resorts
to the court for redress. The colored roan
can do the same thing It is a right which I
believe has always existed. I know of no in
stance in which a colored man, claiming to
bo free, has been denied the privilege of as-
sertinpjus ireeaom in me courts or tne mate
where he resided
Such suits have by no means been unfre
quent in the slave Slates.
But if tho State courts should ba closed to
the colored people,the Federal courts are open
to them '1 he y are entitled to their personal
freedom hy a constitutional provision, and the
Constitution gives the Federal courts juris
diction of all cases arising under it, or the
laws of the United States, and if a case should
arise in a State court, involving tho personal
liberty of a colored person, and the decision
should be adverse to him, ho could under tbe
judiciary act ofl"89 have tho judgment re
viewed by the Supremo Court of the United
Slates T hero is, then fore, no necessity for
further legislation by Congress to sccuro to
tho colored people tho personal liberty to
which tbe constitutional amendment entitled
them, for that is already amply secured, and
that is the only subject on which Congress
can legislate by virtue of that ammdment
But w e ought not to ossumo that tho States
vv ill attempt to depriv o tho colored people of
any of their legal rights. They hove not y ct

One grcut industrial and social system can
not bo disrupted and overthrown and an
other substituted for it in a day. Tuno and
patience aro necissary to accomplish the
work '1 ho South is tho congenial climate
of the colored people. Ihey need employ

interests are Interwoven. They will both
soon understand this, and bo brought to
gether upon terms that aro fair and Just- If
tho African race are harshly dealt with- in
one place, they havo the right and power of
removal to another The States that treat
them most justly und generously will bo the
most abundantly supplied with labor; and
thev will soon come to understand this
Self Interest, if nothing else will secure fair
and Just treatment If the Ueneral Govern
ment will take its hands off, and let the
thing alone, it will soon adjust itself upon a
better and more satisfactory basis for all
parties, than it can ever be forced to by Fed
cral interference
As to the right of suffrage, that Is k matter
with wbkhCongrtsscannotintermeddle. It
is a matter peculiarly of Mate cognizance,
and for State regulation
If Ohlaand Kentucky choose to confer tbe
right upon all tbe negroes within tl eir bor
ders it is no concern of mine. I have no
right to object, or to question the wisdom of
their action. But Congress has no right ta
force it upon any of tha States ; and to do so
would bo a long stride toward centralization.
Furthermore, Tt would be doing ta other
States what we would not submit to ourselves.
I think I do not hazard contradiction in say
ing that if all the colored people of any one
oi euo soutnern mates were taken in a mass,
Just aa they are, and set vlown in any one of

The Riot ait Memptil.
Tram tbk at npblk Fokt
At a time like this, when the public mind
is in a stato of wild excitement over tho
events of yesterday and the day bcfoTe, we
ennsider it the dutv of the miblio nrcss to
allay rather-than add fnel to the flame, We
shall, therefore, forbcar.full comment on the
affair to a future time. AVe are gathering a
mass of facts in reference to tho occurrence
of the two days, and already tbe affair of
Tuesday evening wear an aspect very differ.
ent from mat given ny too cuy papers o yes
terday rooming, a inorouguiy rename gen
tleman informs us that Recorder Crcighton
told him that he was present at the com
mencement of the riot Being In South Mem
phis, he noticed a crowd of negroes gathered
tocciher evidently in a stale of excitement.
und ho directed two policemen to go forward
and disperso the crowd When the police
men obeyed the order, the fracas began.
Who fired tbe first shot no one can tell.
The brutal and reckless manner In which
our police force are accustomed to treat
negroes whom they have occasion to arrest,
has been a matter of comment by every citi
zen who has observed their action in such
circs Calm, thinking men, have observed
this state of affairs with apprehension, be
cause it wjs known that a large number of
colored soldiers were about to be disbanded
and scattered among tbo negro population
of the citv . These soldiers are trained to tbe
use of arms, and to more reliance on them
selves than is usual among their race, and it
was feared that v iolence would be met by
violence. That the apprehension wo well
grounded is shown by the event.
It IS useless anu Ik is laise to say lime ma
teachings or any action of tho dominant po
litical partyof the country since the war u
had anything to do with this affair. It I ono
of tho direct consequences of tho war. The
peoplo of tills city and other portions of the
South who were arroved against the Govern
ment and were subdued, cherish animosity
against tho negro becauso he has, to some
extent, aided in their discomfiture, and, hay.
ing been their property, is now a iree man.
Tins being the case, a spark only was needed
to cause an outbreak such as has occurred.
'I ho people throughout the country who read
the particulars of the catastrophe will natu
rail) feel surprised when they hear that
'South Memphis was for two hour at tho
mercy of on infuriated negro mob," end by
the sumo authority learn that one white man
was killed and two wounded, while over
twenty of tho negroes were killed and
wounded
At lien the blood of our DCople shall be-
eoino cool they will look with horror on the
massacre of unarmed and defenseless negroes.
1 he negroes may have been, and doubtless
were, in the commencement guuiyoi some
of the offences charged, but the statements of
lhc Avalanche and trjur.psrlicularly, were
sensational, and in the highest degreo exag.
geratcd We believe the) did much to cause
tho renewal of tho contest on yesterday.
These newspapers are busy sowing the wind,
which, if it bear not tho whirlwind will be no
fault of theirs. That this not was premedi
tated by tho ncjrrocs, no man with the
slightest pretension to common sense be
liev rs It was a sudden, unpremeditated out
break, and the exact origin of It is given In
our local columns, on the authority of a gen
tleman who was an officer In the United
Sta(cB volunteer aervice during tbe war, and
who reside now in the vicinity of the
original outbreak. A largo number of ne
groes havo been shot down while entirely un
unned and defenceless, simply end solely be
cause they were negroes.
The 3d United States colored infantry, the
regonent which is being disbanded, has been
probably the worst rcglincut of colored
troops we havo ever had In the city, and
ruaay of its members have been guilty or
offehces against tho law whleh have gone
unpWshcd. We believe that somo drunken
merhber of the regiment were among those
with whom the riot commenced If bey
alone could havo been tho suflerer, no harm
in tba muse of lustico could have occurred.
t lint) in Almost every instance, those who were
killed had not participated In the riot, The
