adds tbe following :
"The General added that he had accompanied
the Presidential party at the President's reqnee:
that he had abstained equally from dVclariag
his own political sentiments, or authorising any
body'else to do so. He said that neither Mr.
Seward nor any other person eoold commit him
to any set or political opinions that be was an
r-oyed at tbe successive attempts thich have
U"c made hy Seward and others, to announce
to the people along tbe road that his political
views were in narmony wiu tnose ot Mr. John-
,-sn. I required whether it was true that be
had attended the interview between the FhOa
delphia Convention Committee and the President
upon his own motion. He replied : Of coarse
not. That being a purely political gathering, ft
was none of my business. I was there at the
request of the President, and all attemt.ts to sr
tach a political significance to my presence are
nawarraniea ana impertinent.
Too Forward. Even tbe Lonisville Jour-
so, one of the President's chief snpnorters
in the border States, is becoming disgusted
at the conduct of the men who arc now tbe
pets of the administration. The Journal
remarks :
-'Surely there is nothing in all human history
use ine present conamon oi political aoairs
among ua. Never before was there a esse where
men rebelled against their Government, strove
to subvert and shatter it, railed in tnetr enortj
laid down their arms, threw themselves upon
the mercy of the conqueror, swore oaths of sub
mission and allegiance, obtained gracious and
magnanimous pardon, and then bad tbe effroa
tery to assume that their treasonable action
against the Government was good ground upon
which to expect and demand the right to control
it, and to srire its honors and emoluments."
Illikuis. The Sangamon County Iterwb-
li&m Convention met at Sprinjficld on Sep

following resolution :
Resolved. That this Convention docs heartilv

ucki, n muring ro invite a. jonnson to tbe

The Bloominjton Pantogfapk of September
8th, relates tbe following incident connected
with the r ccp tiufj of Andrew Johnson at
that p!a?c. It says :
As tbe cars DMSed the switch vard near
Market street, Seward called Hogan's attention
to an effigy hung upon a telegraph pole, and an
express of anger passed over his face as he
saw the banging liiture held a loaf of bread in
one hand, and a lump of butter in tbe other."

The cool impertiLcnee, not vo say impudence,
of the above would have looked rather queer in
the Frte I'reit a few years ago. As you feel
rather sore about having " papers from out the
District" ssv anythiac on this subject, perhaps
you will allow mc to speak of it through your
columns. It seems you now find that there are
" many worthy Daxter men." Not long ago
you deemed them "all knaves and fools." But 1
should like to know where tou get your infor
mation concerning the change in the opinions of
" Baxter men." Will you mention the names
ct a few of them? I will venture the opinion
that you do cot know cf a single case where a
man who supported Mr. Baxter in this last elec
tion has now ' reached the conclusion that he
would prefer" another candidate. You talk
about charges established by witnesses and cor
roborated by Mr. Baxter's letters, when you
know that tbc statements of your witnesses have
already been so varied as to resemV.e in cokrs a
State Prison dress, and as for the letters, they
forcibly remind enc of the letters on which Pick
wick was to le condemned for trifling with the
aSectiijiis of ala ly " Chore an 1 tomito sauce."
" Heavens, Gentlemen" ! sc.
Tbc impudence of the above communica
tion would be good ground for a refusal to
publish it. As the writer, Iiowever, prob
ably offered it and made it purposely offen
sive in its tone, in order that it might be re
jected, and tbu: give occasion for a repeti
tion of tbc falsehood already assiduously
circulated, that tbc Free I'kcss would allow
a hearing to hut one side in its columns, we
not only give it place, but dignify it by a
a reply so far as to say ; that the Fan
I'Rtse never called Mr. Baxter's supporters
"all knaves or fools," and tbe writer doubt
less knows it ; that in stating that many
voted for Mr. Baxter reluctantly and would
prefer another candidate, we only mentioned
a notorious lac; : and that the cflort will
be a vain one to laush off" the effect of
the developments in the Storrs' case. The
testimony of tbc three witnesses is clear,
consistent, direct and nnimpenehod, and M
Baxter's letters, hid hy tbc fide of that cvi
dencc, afford "confirmation strong as boly
writ" to every unprejudiced judge.
There arc none so blind as those that wont
see, and undoubtedly tbe excitement of the
canvass hag prevented many a worthy man
from cxercisins his booeet judgment on that
transaction. Tbc truth will make its way
in time, however.

In spite of tbe short no ties of tho call.
and of the prevailing equinoctial storm, tbe
Court House was well fHted Monday evening
with tbe officers and soktiers of Yermont.and
with eitiasns. Kvery Vermont regiment

in the war, was represented, and the conven

his thanks for tbe honor done him. lie

is more so, lor then there was no doubt as to
tbc points at issue, no question that the only
way ti settle tbem v?as by bard Wows. Xow
we have to meet aUcxapU to compromise
with traitors. But the soldiers of Vermont
do not believe in yielding all into tbe bands
of those who who so lately fought for tbe
destruction of tbe government, and they
cannot be seduced into tbe snpnott of "mv
policy." fAppUose.
The organization of tbe convention was
vorardeted as follows :
lice Presidents-Sergt. Tbos T. Sanboin,
of Strafford ; Sergt. B. M. Sherman, of
Castleton ; Private Spaftbrd Wright, and
Capt. John Lonergan, of horlington.
Secretaries Sergt. Joseph G. Perkins, of
Castleton, and Sergt.-Maj. George Church,
ot Burlington.
Capt. Lonergan was not pre rent v hen
elected as one of tbe Vice Presidents : on
earning in and taking his seatiitcr the rest,
he was heartily greeted and at ones celled on
for a speech, and responded briefly and hu
morously, saying that be was always with
tbe soldiers as long as tbey were with the
Fenians. He thought that those who were
so ready to fight their "brothers" in the
South, ought to be as willing to fight their
cousins" across the water. He thanked
tbem for tbc honor done him, and when tbey
attended a Fenian convention he would see
to it that they were all elected Vice Presi
dents. This characteristic sroeeh was re
ceived with abundant lsuglitcrand applause.

Mr. Andrews proceeded to show tbe rea j

Not that there has been any doubt about her
position on this question; there has never been
since the days of Ethan Allen Bat it had been
intimated that the soldiers were particular friends
of the President'e policy. It rcmaiu to dis
prove this. Let us send a full d elegit ten to

one-legged veterans on his right and lift spoke

tablishing the principle for which Vermont sol
diers fought. His term will expire in about
two and a half years, and his name will go
down to posterity loaded with infamy, lower
than Buchanan, Pierce or Benedict Arnold.

Fellow Citiztns and Sol Jim of Vermont:
The pleasure that I have in addressing
you is mingled with regret; a regret shared no
doubt by most other citizens who did not join
you in the perils and glories of the field, that
I cannot call myself a fellow ioldiir with yon.
1 ou nave in a gigantic contest and on many
fields borne in your persens the hocor and dig
nity of Vermont ani tf the country on to a
glorious triumph, leaving, alas ! on fields of
battle a greater proportion of your numbers
(with one exception) than the soldiers of any
other State.
Well indeed may the citizen who from what
ever canst remained at home, although he did
all in his power to aid and support you,
regret that his lot does not partake of the glory
of yours, and that his descendants cannot say
that their fither steed with you in tbe neriitius
edge of battle. You have attained tbe summit
of hun. an renown, and your names and deeds
will go dowo to posterity made honorable by all
the recollections that can make lift a victory
To those who fell tn the service of their country,
and to you. tbe citizens of the State render now
as they always win, while valor and fidelity are
due to great and noble deeds.
Now, laying aside for the time (aad I hope
forever,) jour arms and leturning to your avo
cations and duties as citizens, you meet the same
enemies whom you have overthrown and cod.
ijuered in amis, in the arena of Polities.
The enemies of tbe republican government and
true republican progress a rain, and mainlv in
the prisons of the very same opponents, contend
against you for the mastery.
You have won the victory of law anJ liberty
and equality in the great tribunal of arms, to
which they appealed .and now with aa impetdesce
almost amusing, they gather themselves togeth
er with all their followers and heads, to eeeupy
the field you have won, and to fatten on tbe
fruits of your success.
The central point in this sew and indeed
moowuteous conflict, is the pending proposition
of amendment to tbe constitution. Those amend
ments embody the leading ideas of the Congress
of the people in giving terms to the traitors and
rebels who have been overthrown in their war
jpon the govern men r. Some of those ideas are
that tbe civilized natives of the nation arc its
citizens; that among c citizen; there is, in a
republic, per ect equality of right and privilege
befcie tbe law, and that the recognition of clas
ses or races is subversive of the foundations of
liberty and true progress; that the anti-republican
advantage which the slaveholding sections
01 ine country nave so long enjoyed, of
concentrating tbe representatives of millions of
people in tbe hands of an arutocratica! few.
ought to be given up, or their representative?
diminished to a proportion equal to that of other
parts of the country where all oitrzens equally
participate in the choice of represenutifes; that
treason ought to be made odious and traitors
punished in some other wsy than by yielding to
them (as we must if tbe comtitctiem remains as
it now is) a new and additional representation in
Congress five times as large as that of the State
of Vermont, as the legal consequence cf the
overthrow cf rebellion and slavery. Other pro
visions of the amendment are imnortant and
necessary, but on these points to which I have
alluded are cade up. sahstantiallv. the -ml I
issues of the day.
While to me it seems plain that suffrage, uni
And to this party, uuL-ipj ily for the- country,
bis adhered the man who, chosen ly Uw to
the vioe-presidener, because be was mpposed to
possess your sentiment-, and to be himself the
hater and eneni, of that treason and rebellion
of which he bad been such a vigorous and out
spoken opponent, now, by the event of the as
sassination of the patriot Lincoln, exercises the
functions of chief magistrate. Surrounded and
supported mainly by those against whose treason
and connivance at treason, he had so recently
spoken and acted with such vigor, be has be
come the mouthpiece of those who have only
ceased to be opea enemies of their country be
cause your valor has cwquered them, and who
now plot to restore their ancient sway by a pre
tended love for principles which nobody can dis
pute, and by carefully striving to keep oat of
sight the real issues of the col teat.
Ia their appeal for the sovereignty of States,
they forget the security of their citizens; in their
demand for representation by States, they are
blind to the condition ot the people who com
pose them; while they cr; for equality among
political communities they are who ly unwilling
to secure equal justice and political liberty to
the individuals of those same communities.
They would turn over to tho keeping of those
who have made unsuccessful war upon the na
tion, the millions of patriots and f reed-men who
have dared everything and suffered every thing
for their country, and who are even now harass
ed, oppressed and sacrifixd in many parte of the
South for no crime or wrong, but only for their
fidelity to their country's flag.
Fellow citizens, I nerd not purxie the sad de
tails of these events, they are fresh tn recollec
tions of you all. They demonstrate the prime
necessity that the nation shrtuld exact ample se
curities for peace and good order and jistiee.
before those who have f rfei-e-l all political rights
by their rebellion, are admitted to control or
share in the government they have sought to
Aad this same party who are impugning the
conduct and motives of the representatives of
the people ia demanding these securities, and in
providing for peace and justice by laws for the
protection of tbe people whom your arms have
set free, aaJ for the upholding of civil rights,
are endeavoring to sap the foundations of liber
ty by exaggerating and unjustly enlarging exec
utive power. Not content with procuring vetoes
more numerous than ever before, of measures
vital to peace and good order, they arraign as an
agt-ressioB upon the prerogative ot
the President the acts of Con
gress in passing tb:m e-ver h;s vetoes
and in fearlessly asserting tbi-ir indepecilence
of executive dictation. To their war upon yeur
rsprekentatives and your rights they would per-
vert all the offices and employments in the gov
eminent, and have even in luaed the President
with many of his cabinet to use the stump in
indecorras and unjust aspersioi s against them.
It is high time that the people of this uaurry
should look to the limit of executive power.
The frame rs of this government, knowing that
liberty ia chiefly hi danger from executive ag
gressions, most earelully restricted the powers
of the president, acting alone, to the execution
of the public will as expressed ia the law made
by Ccngms. Hole the country should 1-e gov
erned, and whether it should have peace or war.
was never confided to him. Instead therefore of
letting up provisional governments in the South
ern States, and causing the organization of per.
manest civil ones, on the ruins of the rebellion
fixing by his own will the political status of
citizens, freedmen and rebels, made to the ad
vantage of the Utter, the Presi Icn ought to
have left to the Uw nuking power of tbe
country the read just meat of thoc ommun:ties
which the rebellion hal disorganized. Had be
done so, peace aad security at.1 equal rights
would have I prevailed to-day in all the land.
But in his baste for a technical aad apparent
restoration he overstepped his Juty and
cised all the faculties of a supreme monarch in
setting up Slates and giving Uw to communi
ties, whose real destiny (as it is now) was right
fully and only in tbe hands of Congress sa toe
only power in whom has been confided, ia this
republican government, the right and duty of
providing trial shall be.
Gentlemen. I will not weary jcu by dwelling
upon tbe great themes which are familiar to
I have, and I am sure you have, no feel'
ings of animosity or hatred or unkibdaess to
wards that portion of our fellow citizens who.
having drenched the land in Mood by their un
just rebellion, are now really disposed to act
the part of true citizens, and to accord to others
the same privileges they ask for themselves.
But they and their fnenda North and South
mutt distinctly understand that there hi a diflVr.
ence between loyalty and treason; that those
who have been tbe faithful friends of the Gov
ernment through all its trials must not be per
secuted scd oppressed for their fidelity; that
the amplest evidence of sincerity is to be found
ia modest obedience to Uw, and sot in an ar
rogant defiance cf Uw and a proscription of
sil Southern mea who were ecn'pieuou for loy
alty. And tbey must be made to know (as the
voices of Vermont and Maine indicate that tbey
speedily will,) that it is tbe settled purpose of
the great and loyal body of the people with its
Congress and its army and navy to enforce ia
all kindness and good will, but with absolute
firmness, all the conditions which in the judg
ment of the nation are necessary to athe fotun
peace, unity and happiness of the whole people,
renewing tbe nation to a broader and purer life,
and thus realizing tbe aims of its mighty foun
ders, making It a perpetual temple of liberty
and justice.
Fellow citizens, let us not despair of tbe re
public; a patient, persistent continuance ia the
well doing yen have so nobly performed win
lead us surely to these ends.
