'. . ,V; concl0ding"portiok. - No purely sgricrjltursl people, fighting for the protection of their own domestiq in stitations upon their own sou, have ever yet ben conqnered. ' I say farther, that no revolted 'people have ever been subdued after they have been able to maintain an independent govornroent for three years; . "Bat; sir. let thaVpsss. We are at war, Neither side of the house will deny ' if Whether these States re io rebellion, or whether we are fighting an Independent power, we are still at war. Whether it be a civil war, rebellion, revolution foreign war, It matters :itlle. It mast cease and I want this r Administration to tell the American peeple when t will oesse. me . . -,in:i wsr must cease. 1 care not now or from wat canse. whether by exhaustion on either side, by Southern sohraisslon or sue Cess, by mediation or by Northern mag nanimity, of by Northern sense of self-pre servation. The war must cease. There must be an end of it sooner or later, from one caue or from another. I thick all ill concede this. Admitting, therefore. this conclusion, the next inquiry is, bow. and when? Ihese are the proper ques tions lor this Congress to determine. When shall this war cease? What is the recurred measure of Southern submission? Will the party in power, who hare the responsU bilitr before the world, answer this ques tion? Shall it be when in the lanruaze of tbe President in April, 1861, and have "re possessed the forts, place, and Brooertr seized from tbe Union?" Or be the lan guage of the resolution' of Congress passed nearly unanimously in 1361. when we have "successfully maintained and defended tbe supremacy or tbe Constitution, and pre served tbe Union with all tbe dignity equality, and rights of the several States unimpaired," and that, as soou as these ob- ects are accomplished, the war ousht to cease? Or shall it be when, accord in? to tba Presidential programme of 1862. the South ero States, acting under the nominal protection of tbe Constitution, shall of themselves eecsent under duress to the mancipation of their alaves; or under the more recent proclamation of tbe same func- lODary, who, outside the Constitution, and utter disregard of its sacred provisions, the abandoned tenth of the population of the South, shall consent to betray tbe re- raaloins nine-tentbs into a servitude more degraded than that which thtir own local institutions snUiled upon its blacks? Or shall it be when, order the yet more re cently declared doctrine of the Republican leader of tbe House. (Mr. Stevens,) the Southern States shall be reduced to a con dition of abject dependence, as a conquered ecemy, entitled to no law or mercy except tbst which the clemency of fanaticism may afford? Or, more dreadful, shall It be when tbe Americsn people, North and South, utterly broken down, their national inter ests destroyed, their ancient form of gov ernment subverted, their territorial unity disintegrated , their lands laid waste, their homes forever gone, and the fountains of the great deep of national desolation shell overwhelm them, that tbu, when all pow er of resi.taocs or aggression shall alike be exhausted, sha'l we then hv pesce? Or mord fearful, shall it be when the iron hand of despotism is firmly planted upon the submissive necks of Northern timidity? Mr. Speaker, when shall the wsr cease? I ask the question in good faith. I ssk it of tbe men who govern the North. It is their duty to determine how and when it shall cease, that tbe country may know the extent of the demands to be made open it, the full measure required, and have unfold ed at least a glimpse of tbe datk and sha dowy future. I ask in the name of the Americsn peo ple, whose blood and treasure is being pour ed out in this war. in their name I ask yon when shall this hellish cruelty of blood and famine cease? Sir, let the warbeof what ever character it may, it most cesse, and it must cease by negotiation. Early in this session, I had tbe honor to present to this House a preamble aud resolution, which I shall read. They are as follows: "Whereas, the President, in his message delivered to this House on the 9th instant, and in his recommendation' to the people to assemble at their places of worship, and give thanks to God for recent victories, claims tbst the Union cause bss gained im porta rH and substantia! advantages, and whereas, in view of these triumphs, it Is no longer beoesth our dignity, nor dacgerous to our safety, to evince a. generous mag nanimity becoming a great and powerlul peoplu by offering to the insurgents an op portunity to 'return to the Union without imposing on them degrading or destructive conditions: Therefore,- : Resolved, That the President be re quested to appoint three commissioners, who Shall be empowered to open negotiations with the -authorities at Richmond, to tbe end that this bloody, destructive, sjd in human war. shall cease, sod the Union be restored on terms of equity, fraternity, and equality under the Constitution." . . . s i Mr. Speaker, if, as the gentleman from Pennsylvania says, we are at war with a foreign power, what baa been the practice of our Government with reference to the appointment of commissioners to treat with roreigri ' powers? Why, sir. as early as ITS P. When the Algerines made war Iff the Mediterranean upon oar commeroe. pirates though tbey were, we did. not think it be neath oar dignity to treat with them; the President authorised the Amerloao minia te to-Portugal to appoint e eomra'asiosar, who did proceed lo negotiation, mod did finaMv make a treaty of amity whloh lasted till 1815. Again, Sir, in the war of 1812, between the United States and Great Bri tain, "three very distinguished men were appointed commissioaera, Heorjr Clav-' be ing chairman of the commiasion, and they proceeded to Eiurepe, and made ' tbe Cele brated treaty of Ghent. But. air, there is yet a later end mora ap plicable case, the wsr with Mexico. When General Scott advanced with his conquer ing army from Vera Cruz to the city of Mexico, the President sent Nicholas P. Trit as a commissioner to treat with the Mexican authorities. Sir. Mexico was sub jugated; we had conquered tbe whole re public of Mexico: we had won a Series or victories from Vera Cruz to the halls of the Montezumas, and we were In possession" of their capital; tbey were a conquered people. Did we pass tbe, confiscation laws then? Uid we apply tbe principle of confiscation to Mexican soil? No, sir; we treated , with them, conquered as tbey were, and Mr. Trist. acting in pursuance of the authority conferred udoo him by the President of the United States, made the treaty of Guada lupe Hidalgo on -the loth :of February, 1818.' That treaty, wbico wasaubseqaeutly ratified by the Senate of the United States. resulted in the accession of California and our vast possessions of the rao:nc. loere was.no conhieation. ' -...-' But it Is said that this is a rebellion, and that it will not do to treat with the rebels in arms. Well, sir, this is not the first re bellion we have had in this country. We have had rebellions which, at their com mencement, were at threateniug as this wss at its commencement, to tbe perman ence of our institutions, and we treated by commissioners in every instance, as I shall show. . . Io 1786. the first rebellion occurred. It occurred, Mr. Speaker, in New England. This wss the first armed rebellion against the Government. Sir, although it is un pleasant to reflect upon sections, candor compels me to declare that New England has been io rebellion against tbe institu tions of this country ever since the adop tion of the Federal Constitution. She bas not faithfully performed her part of the compact made when she cams into the Uo- oo.' Io tbe Convention tnat iramea our organic law, the sections came togemer. New England had her navigetion and her manufactures to protect, It is true; New Enzlsnd had a few slaves, but when they ceased to be profitable, she becsme philan thropic and benevolent, and abolished slav ery. But so long as money was to be wrung from tbe sicews of the negro. New Eng- and held men in bondage, and furnished the tonnage that brought slaves from Africa to tbe Southern States. I repeat, sir. tbst tbe first srmed rebellion a this country occurred in Massachusetts, and that commissioners were sppointed to o negotiate a peace. I will read from a New England historian to prove the fact: "This was known asSbav's rebellion. It commenced in 1786. and continued until the close of 1787. Tbe people took up arms, organised and collected 10 large masses under the lead of a popular officer who bad distinguished himself, in the Revolutionsry war. They broke up courts called to try and punish persons implicated with them, and defied the lawsand authori ties' The Governor called out four thous and four hundred militia. A declaration of rebellion wsa issued by the General Court or Legislature,' in which it was declared that a horrid and unnatural rebellion and war had been openly and traitorously raised and levied against the Commonwealth, and is still continued and now exists against the same. Commissioners were sulequently appointed by the Legislature, consisting of General Lincoln, who commanded the troops o-dered out by the Commonwealth; Hon. Samuel A. Oils and Hon. Samuel Phillipo, President of the House of Repre sentatives. These commissioners were au thorized to promise indemnity to such who might discontinue opposition to -the Gov ernment, and return to their allegiance as good citizens " ' Bradford's History of Msssschusetts. Well, sir, we hare had 'other rebellions in this country. We had the Whiskey In surrection in the gentleman from Pennsyl vania's (Mr. Stevens) own State and vicini ty. That rebellion was so serious io it character that George Washington sent two special messages to C i:gress on "the sub ject, coerced out the militia of four of the States of the Union Pennsylvania, Virgin ia, Maryland, New Jersey to suppress it. and appoint commissioners to treat with the insurrectionists. : Nay, more; be went in I person, accompanied by Alexander Hamil- lou, lueu oecreiary ui tuo iiohoimj, iimu had a conference with the rebels at Carlisle. The Father of bis Country, in the true fp'r it of patriotism, justice, wlsdo:u and policy, thought it not beneath his dignity to treat with rebels. He did treat with them sne Cinsfully, and the result was that tbe rebels laid down their arms, and Congress' at the next session repealed the obnoxious law. ' : But, sir, that is not tbe only case. I come to a later and yet more pertinent and signi ficant case the Mormon Robellion. 'These proflgste outcasts, who have been 'always hostile to you moral and politioal institu tions, were treated with by Commissioners. . It commenced early in 1857. The im mediate cause was opposition to the exer cise of Federal autboritv and the appoint ment of a ' Territorial Governors 'Ot tbe 15th of September of that year Brigham Young issaed a proclamation io the style of an Independent sovereign announcing his purpose to resist by force of arms the entry of the United States troops Into the Territo ry of Utah. He proceeded to csrry oat this threat1 He organized an army, declared martial law,' seized Government fortifica tions, destroyed Government property', and put the Territory fu a state of complete de fense -against-' the Federal armyiv' Tho Federal troops there at the time were over awed or rendered powerless. Tbe Presi dent aent a'meeeage to Congress,' which pass ed billa to meet tbe ease,: large- sums were appropriated, troops, were ordered there on' der- command of General A. S. Johnson, in the Spring of 1833, and in April of tbst year, Hon. L. W. Powell, now Senator of Kentucky, and Major McCullough, were ap pointed commissioners on the part of- the; United States, and Colonel Kane appointed Ou the fjari o Iho M.orro.ODSk, Ttueve com missioner carried with them a proetama Hon of the Presinent, io which ue offerei a luu pardon to all who would submit to the laws. By the conduct and forbearance ot these commissioners peace was restored, tnej-ebellion put down, and the Federal aa thority 1 once more respected. The officers appointed by the President were accented by the Mormons, and order and submission have reigned ever since. t ... c .y. 0 Therefore, Mr. Speaker, is there an v thin so extraordinary in my proposition to, send Commissioners to treat with the Southern States? We are told almost weekly that the rebellion is nearly crushed out, th.at we have every advantage over these insur-enls. Is It wrong, therefore; is it unwise-, U Ft un patriotic to pursue precedent . that have been set by the Father of his Countrv, and by his successors in offiae? '. - . Mr. SpeVker, we will have to treat with these Rebels. This war, commenced, with out cause, prosecuted without glorv. will end Id disintegration and destruction if car ried on for another Administration.' 'Peace must come."-The President told you so in his insugural address. Then, ir. be was uninfluenced by the fanatical teachings of a desperate crew who have other objects at heart than the welfara, the unity, the pros perity, tbe harmony, the freedom of the American people.' God grant that the dav of peace may come soon. That it will come sooner or Ister we all know. The powers of aggression and of resistance are alike fail ing Instead of supplying ourarmies through patriotic enthusiasm, onr Government is re sorting to bribery ane force bribery by the system ofbounties; force by conscription. It : j J ;ii t . . . . . is ueuuciuie oy matnemaiical calculation that another term of three years will find us in a condition where it is imDossible. ei ther by force or bribery, to Inspire your ar mies with sufficient power of 'agression to conquer the Southern people. Peaoe -mu3t and will ensue. ' -- - ' Li. 1 . Gen. Jackson is frequently referred to as havicg favored harsh measures toward th South, and yet we have the authority of his friend and cotemDorarv'. Thomas IT. Benton, in his Thirty Years in the Senate. 10 me conirary. The authority says that "Many thought that he ought to relax in his civil measures for allaying discontent whilo Sooth Carolina held the military atti tude of armed defiance to tbe United States and among them Mr. Qaincy Adams. But he adhered stea l ily to bis purpose of going on with what justice required for the relief of the South, &c." (Benton's Thirty Year' View page C08.) - John A. Dix, now a Major General of Volunteers, when a Senator in Congress, said 00 the 1st of Marcb,J847, in a debate upon tbe Three Million bill, that "disunion is better than intestine war;" and aain, in the same speech, that 'Civil war bss no ameliorations. It "s pure, unmixed .demoralization. It dissolves - . all national and domestic ties. . It renders selfishness more odious by wedding it to ha tred and cruelty. The after generation which. reaps the bitter harvest-of intestine war is scarcely less to be commiserated than that by whose hands the poisonous seeds are sown. Lees, far less than tbeso would be disunion." Mr. Speaker, I again ask, when shall this war cease? Shall it be when the whole American people, North and South, utterly broken down. dispirited, and politically dis integrated, ehaltarise in. their power, and indignantly throw off on both aides tbe un- iaithlul rulers who use them to the destruc tion and annihilation of their national liber ties and existence? Or, more fearful still, shall it be wheu despotism has become or ganic and fixed, and all opposition of thoughts aud expression shall be . driven from Congress and elsewhere, and the freed -men of tbe South becomes the master of the freemen of the North? Or shall it be when the State governments and the people of tbe revolted States, as such, shall cease to exist, the former ha subverted, and the latter replaced with Northern Abolitionists? Io short, -Mr. Speaker, will the partv in power make a definite conclusion and agree ment among themselves as to the conditions upon which this war shall cease, its horrors terminate, and all the consequences, wheth er good or bad, shall be fully known and understood? Wo must have peace a last ing peace based, upon tbe Constitution aud cemented by the Uoioo. . Berks, that immortal patriot -whose in spired lenguage I love to quote, said, March 1775 it; !

It is simple peace; sought in its natural course and its ordinary haunts; it is peace sought in tbe spirit Of peace, and laid in principles pnroly-pacific. 1 propose by removing- the ground of tba difference, aud by restoring the unsoopecU ing confidence or the colonies In tbe mother country, io g4ve permanent satisfaction -td your people; and (fa- from a scheme of rol-i log by discord) to reconcile: them' to each other 10 the same act, sod by the bond of the very same interest which recxuciles them to Brit:sh Government."

Your predictions have at last been verifi ed, at least in this county, when you prop hesied that the abolition party would place the negro on . an equality with the white man. At a meeting of the people who be lieve in" Abraham I.,' and in the second coming, held for some purpose, a gentleman who holds a government office In this place introduced a resolution declaring in favor of "Old Abe" for the next President; where upon another government ofScer, moved to amend by declaring also in favor of Fred. Douglass lor vict Presidents ibis was a bomb shell to some of tbe timid ones ;but the gentleman argued that the great repub lican party was made up from all kinds and classes of politicians; that its success was owing to the bringing together of the ap parently antagonistic elements among poli ticians; that, without the aid of the radical Germans, they would have been defeated, and the same result would have taken place had not the know-nothings, the old whigs, or, latterly, tbe "war democrats," alliej themselves with them! He knew that the negro would be made a vAtr in every loyal State before another election. Oar duty to this down-trodden people would surely elevate them to the Uvel of any other class of people. They were fighting the battles of the country; it would bs as little as we could do to make them voters and allow them to bold office. Already , be said; the JN e w York Tribune was out in favor of such a consummation.- If we denied tbe colored people these plain rights, they would rise up and take tbem, and for one be would help them . He was - opposed ' to all parties', or party nomination but he would give aa equal share "' of offices aod emoluments to tbe 1 egro, the German, the Englishman, the radical, the know-nothing, or the "was democrat.-" He thought it uotbing but right that the colored peeple should have a rep resentative upon the Presidential ticket, aud what more large-hearted and . loyal patriot in the land than Frederick ' Douglass? He considered bim more than the equal in in tellectual attainments ot "Old Abo" himself. He hoped to see him nominated : ou the ticket and elected; then he wanted that old, pro-slavery Taney to-die, and some good colored man, who respected Gjd, and . was human in bis notions, to bs put in hia place. He was willing to give the ' war democrats" their share, to give tbem plaoes as Gover nors, oOunty offices, membiri of. t ha, Cabi net, &o., but he wanted it distinctly under stood that the colored man, who had so long been 'oppressed' and down-troddeo, should riso to his proper standard, and assert, hi manhood, by holding offiie; and bsvingall the rights and privileges of, the while man.
