and that several Senators on tbo Domoc ratio aide
desired to speak on tbo bill also at tbo proper time.
Mr. Trumbull thought tho oo ml Js ration of this
bill might bo Hushed beroro the morning nour ax
Tha motion was armed to.
Mr. Johnson was under tht impression that the
power referred to now resided In tne rreiiaenc un-
Jar tha nnnitltntlOTi.
Mr. Trumbull aald that of coarse .this section
would not repeal tha Constitution. Its only effect
was to repeal the thirteenth section of the act The
Impression common In tbo country, that this bill
tAnV it tba ttttwav ef the President to arrant Par-
dons, was errooeous. It was not in tbo power of
Controls to take from blm that power ineso
noastlona had been settled years axo by tbo Attor
nay General, and by tbo Supremo Court. Attorney
n.rfTaral Wirt aiifcsaaannLlr had ffWctt Opinion! to
tho effect that the pardon wu of tho offence and
not of tho eonTletUratbe convlotioa being merely
evidence of the crime. The Supremo Court of tho
United States, in too out or tx pant mmama vi.
wns. flfl ITowarJ. 318.1 had cited with approba
tion tbo following. "A pardon Is said by Lord Coke
to bo a work of mercy, whereby the King, either
before attainder, sentence or ooovlotlon, or after,
fera-i-eth im arlma. offence. Ac." f J Just . 233.1
Pardons were either absolute or conditional. The
same court, Chief Justlco Marshall presiding, do
MAari in tha asa of the United States vs. Wilson,
7 Peters, 162, "that a pardon Is a doed, to the
validity of which the delivery and acceptance by
tbo Individual tor wuom u ia iniuoaeu are ueovisary,
and thai tho President mat grant pardons on con-
dtitii.ni ' The President's power over property
oonDscated would not ootaxsnaway oy .at repeat
of this thirteenth section. It would be aeon by (Jen
Howard's report, presented last seuien, that tbo
President had restored 400,000 acres of lanl to
nirHon.il rahal. Tha Prtsldtnt certainly had not
tht powtr to restore property where tho rights of
third parties nan inierventa.
Tbo reason for the advisability of the repeal of
this seaton wu that it provided for tho President's
Issuing proclamations of generalamnesty, Congress
(anil not t<e from the President the power to
grant pardons, but they should recall the power
