Has there been any lack of patriotism daring tht

Coming from whatever quarter It may, I hold

the people of tbt District of Colombia hart been

We art controlled by the Congress of tbt United

I thank you again, gentlemen, for the pasiagt of
this complimentary reiotutlnn, and now, In per

this Board adjourned iihm.

At the eloie of tht proceed If gs (Mr. Pcugh In

of tho Board of Common Council, for the able and

am Indebted for every suoceie that has rewarded

evidences of your favor I gratefully tender you my
sincere and unaffected acknowledgments
The basinets of this Council, la which we havt
been pleasantly associated for tbt past year, bai
been brought to a clott It docs not become me
to attempt any review of lU legislative acts
These will undergo the scrutiny of minds more Im
partial, perhaps, than mint, and be passed upon by
voices mneh more potential. Though much has
been dona for tht improvement and benefit of the
city, much more would have bten accomplished If

city preserved, and that deservedly popular and
truly beneficent organisation known as tbt publio

10 far wt know, the Incurring of anr additional
debt. That thus much has been accomplished
under the oonttnued high prices of material and
labor, and no measure of mtiobterous tendency In
adrertently enacted should afford substantial cause
for mutual gratulatloni at this moment of offiolal
And If. as baa sometimes been said. It bo a merit

fortunate In not being amenable to any Impeach

tbt onnortunltr slnoe afforded to ouroonitltutlonal
guardians, some of whom at tht beginning of the
session were entire strangers among as, to become
more enlightened on tbt subjects to wbleh these
propositions relate. It Is scarcely conceivable that
upon full Investigation a majority of the national
legislature will so far disregard the spirit of the
organio law or toe ianu, and tne principles upon
which that law Is fourided, as to deny to this com
munity the privileges enjoyed by every other loyt
people of managing their municipal affairs In such
manner at tbey shall deem beit lor the advance

be without faith, tbsrefore, that tho present guard
ians and protectors of this metropolis "the child
of the nation" will prove themselves to b such,
In that Just and liberal spirit in which the Cons It
totlon Invested them with this high duty.
It may bt expected of mt that on this occasion
I should follow tbt example of my predecenon by
brief allusions to tbt national " situation I
know of bat ont question that engrones the minds
and evokes the anxieties of all the people That
Jueitlon Is an all absorbing one, and may be di
ned In two words, ' National Reconciliation"
tht reconciliation of all the States and of the people
o.f all tht States, that tht Itepubllo msy aaiuine lta
wonted career in national grandeur, wealth, and
power. This question holds the first plaot In trery
patrlotlo heart. Mort than a year has tlapied
alnct tbt people of this community and those of
trery loyal community within the limits of our
expantlro territory, halted with every demonstra
tion of Joy, and with devout gratitude to the
graotous and All wise Power w bo has "mado
and 1 referred us a nation," the nsws of the
subjugation of that formidable, yet osaielesi
rebellion whloh , had spread desolation and
wot orer this hitherto prosperous and happy coun
try, and wMoh In Hi suppression had oost millions
of treaiurt and oceans of Hood.
Every bosom thrlltsd with Joy In view of tbt
speajy peace then In prospect. But alaal that
peace has not yet coma sectional animosities are
not yet allayed. Tht desperate conflicts no longer
ragt on tbt ensanguined fields of the South; the re

According to ont class of Statesmen, whoet mo

Is this a wist or a Jut policy f Can It bt sus
tained on any rational theory? Hi 1 this Union,
for whose preservation so many prayers of thank
fulness have ascended to Heaven, been really dis
solved, so that a largo proportion of Its Butts art
now to bt treated as subjugated prorlncee? The
Union was not dliiolred at the olore of tht war. It
was vindicated and sustained by the strong arms and
brart hearts of the peoplt. Is xhat tbey woo In
tbt field to be lost In the forum? 1 Heaven, la Ui
mercy, forbid !
A mort enlightened and eoniervallvo policy Is
that of the President, sustained by nearly trery
member of his Cabinet. Instead of fostering iee
tlonal anlmotltltsr initead of fructifying and sowing
broadcast this baleful fruit, from which germinated
the late disastrous civil war; Instead of visiting with
vengeance theo iubmlalrt and repentant rebellious
State", they propose to treat them with tht Justice
and magnanimity due from tht rioter to a subdued
and prostrate foe. Justly holding that the rebel
lloua States and their lately deluded people were
rtrercut of tht Union, they propose at onct to
oommence the work of reconciliation by admitting
them, under proper and reasonable safeguards, to
all tht rights aud prirllegta to which they are en
titled under tht Conetitutlona eourat whloh, It
seems, to my humble Judgment, Is In beautiful
harmony with tht declarations or the latt lamented
President, and also with the formal and solemn
declaration of Congress, during the pendency of the
war, that It was waged "for the de'enea and main
tenanct of tht Constitution and tht preservation
of the Union, with tbt dignity, finality and rights
of the several States unimpaired."
Such are tht two policies now depending In refer,
tnct to tbt momentous question that divides tht
people of this Union, and divides alio the txeon
tlvt end legislative branches of the Government.
In their decision the people of this District havt no
Tolct, but, deeply Interested as tbey art In tht
peace and prosperity of the whole country, they
will oontlnue to offer up their earnest Invocations
that reconciliation may be no longer deferred that
It may begin with Congreas and tht Extcutlrs, that
they may be able speedily to harmonise on a Just,
reasonable and constitutional plan, that tbt people,
laying aside all their party and sectional prejudices,
and all their pride of opinion, may join their hands
and thels hearts In the consummation of this good
work, by practicing upon those precepta of Chris
tlany which Instruct ui to bear etch other's bar
dens tn times of affliction, and directing tbelr
ivmpUhtes to soothing tho sorrows and mitigating
tntsnfferiogs oaused by this calamitous war, until
the country shall be blessed with both reconcilia
tion and fraternity, srcurlng to as a peace which,
"like a broken limb united, will grow stronger for
the breaking "
Again tendering to yon, gentlemen, my thanks,
end my beit wishes for yonr prosperity, I declare
this Council adjourned without day.
