restored: that personal lilnr'y wa- p.g.un

country should again be reinsentid in tnc
national congress. I am sorry that we e ,n
not unite with that great authority m ho
onding that proposition. Ii the truth were
so, 1 am sure there is ni je.iple within t!u
limits ol this Union who would bail it with
gnater satisfaction than y uir-ilve-. 'I here

glefor political and national life wc arc t o
old to believe against the tacts, that that ex
ists) which does nof exist. With almost the
same breath that brought ui tLis sounding
proclamation, the telegraph brought us the
news oi the not at Memphis and the massa
cre in N'ew Orleans ! It i. w bring us the
news that over all the 'sunny south,' from
bill to hill, from hamlet tu l.anilct, tliL-e
who have stood by tbe government and the
flag, arc still pursued by the same old re
lcnllise spirit of vindictive scorn the sau.'
old scorn of northern liberty and northern
institutions that abounded beiure. itu
proclamation, gentlemen, of who !i I Iwu
spoken, is not trie!
This, then is the situation. The tjuthem
States, which have been in rebellion ai.J
whose armed resistance to the government
has been overwhelmed, found themselves, at
the end of the contest, entirely disorganized,
so tar as the practical operations of tin ir
government went. ( I am not now taking up
tue disputed theory as to whether any re
bellious State was in tbe I'niun or out of the
Union which question reminds me very
forcibly of a scriptural one, as to whether a
certain apostle was 'in the 1-ody or out of tbe
body' we all know that practically these
States were found without any organized
government.) The original organized com
munities with their laws, officers, and ma
chinery, had been scattered to the winds by
the rebellion. These States, tbeu, wc found
in a disorganized condition. Ol this there
is no question Ihcrc ran be no question
even ihe chief expounder, hitneell, of this
theory oT brcthcrlv love the head and front
of ibis brotherly love proposition informs
us in a proclamation issued May 2.', ltG5,
that the SUtc of North Carolina, having re
belled, and its rebellious government having
oein conquered there existed no power what.
ever within the State to reorganize civil
government. And lie informs us of the
truth. It had no man within its borders
who, by law, was entitled to set it up
again, as ii one ol your school di-tricts
so .mm lose its orgamiation by non-clcction
' mc uisinc; exists, ii you please,
ut there is no man in tlx. Hi.trict mom I
than another who has any right to set it on
'ce-i. again, rim inc aistricl exists as
much as it ever did. Now that was the ex
act condition in North Carolina on the 21th
ol Jlay, IRbo. It was their true condition.
.nd lure arises the first cardinal difference
between tbe President and Congress-. As he
ngnttully says, these States were disorgan
ized communities, und he goes forward "and
u ouci lanes io eicciarc tliat it belongs to him
to make laws for States, to revitalize States
and communities, and declare who anion"

and reorganizing cvciy one of the rebellious
States on the same lu.-is, and in the same
old oligarchical and anti-re publican spirit in
which they existed before. On the one sidt

hard fact which wc have to deal with that

t! at there is wrong which it is the highest
duty of the loyal men north and - -ith to

be done by Cungrev by your Ki p-i .-f na
tive's. It has been their "aim to do it tenirs
eratelv, but kn.ily, and it is the h.li pr". -rogatne
With w i.ich you have invested ti.-u.,
under the C ;:.-iitutioo. It will be I tl.c
dignity and security of tbe whole countiv
not the north alone, but the s.uth also, that
the law ni iking power should do it. Im.-
Cnngre-si demand the r.ititleation of t! u
c n-ututional amendments, and 1 think tl.ey
have the right to claim that this demand i
r.ut unreasonable, that it can scarcely be
ited by any person but tliat it is juft
and right. The cunvcntiun of rebels, demo
cr..ia and friends or tbe President, which
n.et at Philadelphia for the express and
avowcu purpcec ol opposing the policy ot
ixongrcss, oared not to put upon paper one
worn oi condemnation, one word ot criti
cism, one word about these constitutional
amendments, with this one varue execution
tbe most momentous question ot the day
is dismissed, by that bxly ol men. who
claimed to icpics. ut lioth tbe n ,rth and the
south, when Massachusetts and South Car
olina came, in brotherly love, arm and arm
into the convention, with these words :
'We revere the Constitution aa it was band
ed down to us by our fathers.' Th it sen
tence dismisses the constitutional amend
ment from tliar notice. Thev do not ap
peal to the north or the s,ulh to assent to it
oi reject it. Ihey 'pi's i: by on tiie other
side, as did the Ixvite.
Now tnen, gcntbroei-, what do these
amendments require? Tbey declare, first
that all persons born in the United States
.-hall be deemed to be citizens thereof. Some
I revision of this kind has been rendered nec-ce-aary
by the infamous Dred Scott decision
which was that men of color were not eiti
. i.-and had no rights or privileges that
white men were bound to respect. It ia
th- r. ! re necessary that tbe supreme law at
the l.ind should declare who are and who
arc citizens of tbe United States Then
it deel ire s, in the second place that whenever
the right of franchise and suflrage is denied
any rti n oi the mak- population of voting
nc in any State tie representation of that
ritatc '.M be proportionably reduced. By
tlo e ustitution as it now stands two-C(th
ol the slave population were excluded, while
threx-fifths were admitted to representation
L eider the constitution as the law now regu
lates it, ti e- whole number of reprcscntutives
in tbe U. S. C-mrcss is of which there
came from the fret States 157 and 8i f:om
the slave State. Slavery, howt ver, has bc
e .toe abolished and illegal, those who were
r-l.iuiare now eitirens and the southern
Matt-, under the constitution ti it now

wh de number ' The law of the southern

ut l.ee col. n i persons, to vote. Although,

The governments which Imvc been organized j

Aritbmeticiaiis do not agree in the rale which

that oa ail notes, whether payable on demand,
or at a specified time, with simple interest, pay

payments, and then totbeextioaaUliCKnt cfthe

the auaal interest that remain unpaid shall be
subtest to simple interest from the time they
become duo to the time of final settlement. Dat
if in any year, reckoning from the time och
annual interest began to accrue, payments have
been made, such payments shall be applied,
first to liquidate the ample interest that has ac

Tuesday evening, and excited unusual in
terest. Though it is of course the roost na
tural thing in tho world, in such an Associa

tbe minority was only suggested a Jay or
two b.Ioro election, quite a lively canvas
ensued. The result of the friendly utrife was
the addition of over 70 new members, a
pretty extensive renewal of ccrtificite of
membership the receipts from tho two
sou roes amounting to $577 and the election

Tho Bennington lianner says of tho lease of
tho Bennington A Rutland (late tho West
ern Vt.) railroad, to the Vt. Central road,
for at Ieatt one year from January next,
when the old lease to the Troy .t Boston
road will excire :
The lease to Governor Smith, we are informed.
will provide for not less than two daily trains of
passenger cars each way ; for proper facilities
lor doing the local business on the road, at
rales, both for freight and passenger, that will
not exceed the charges on other Vermont reads,
and that if any road should te built South or
i est, connecting with our road at Bennington
or Shaftsbury, proper connections will be made
with It, forminj a through line from New York
to Montreal. We are assured that the interest
of the public has been well provided lor, and we
have no doubt that under the administration cf
Gov. Smith, our people will have no came to
complain of the change of its management frcm
tuo iujr u. jcsua company.
Gov. Smith, from his connections with the
v crmcnt cc Canada and Central railroads, has
peculiar facilities for directing business over the
road he has now leased ; and if tho bills now
pending before the Legislature for the piotcctioa
of ermont interests against the hostile combi
nations of foreign railroads ihould be passed, as
rat they will be, the through business
which naturally belongs to it will be permanent
ly secured, and Gov. Smith be induced to pro
long the lease. In inch cate the contract en
tered into between Ibt Rensselaer k Saratoga
fhf.i LeT,?'"&.B'tn roads for diverting a!!
he through ousinesa from our road for the next
ten years, will be rendered inoperative, and all
