An Hour with Presldcat Johnson.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 31, ISGS. T was of those, iu a bumble way, who fashioned Andrew Johuson into a Vice President at Baltimore—having public!v supported his nomination before the neeliDg of the Convention and voted for bitn in that body. I have emCe then had occasion to complain of my own work, sod have never after the inauguration, keen free from grave apprehension as to the wisdom of that choice, differing with most men who besiege th§ Executive de partment in this very important particu lar, that the administration Las no hon ors I aspire to, I may differ with most of them also alike in the frankness with which I couassi, when invited to do, so and in the convictions which result from contact with rulers. I found myself here on Friday for the first time since February last, and during the afternoon of the same day, called at the White House to see President John eon. I found the halls, the aate-cham ber and all other available spaces around the Executive room, crowded with a mot ley mass of men, with an anxious female face here and there giving variety to the iceue —all waiting, and some from day to day, to gain an interview with the Pres ident and plead for restoration to citizen chip and property. Soon the door open ed and a genteel lady emerged from the President's room with a large official en velope clutched nervously in her hand, and a benignity of countenance that told more plainly than words that another cit izen had been boru again to the Republic. Soon after another and then another came with like trophies of success, and as each one passed cut the mass would away toward the door to catch the name of the next oue called. In a little time I gained admission and had my first inter view with Audrew Johnson as President. There are few men who could make a more favorable impression upon a stran ger on first acquaintance, than the Presi dent. He differs from Mr. Lincoln iu most external charactei istics, aud in maDy contrasts favorably. 110 lacks Mr. Lin coln's jolly Luuiur : improves upun his ungainly ways; is a-tly mure diplomatic, and wears a unifiroi and quiet dignity that would have been shockingly out of place iu his lamented predecessor, hut which well becomes the Chief Executive of a great Nation, lie is about five feet ten in height, rather stoutly and sym metrically built, has long Lair well sil vered by the frosts of time, rather a cold grey eye that looks as if in its calmest glauces there slumbers behind it quite enough to quicken it; a finely chiseled Roman face, usually sad iu expression, at times relieved by a gcuial smile, and in manner and dress seri n ly plain and unaffected. Such is, iu Lr ef, a portrait of Andrew JobnsoD, hut two years ago ilio despised, the reviled of traitors ; the mau upon whose bead fill their fiercest denunciations and against whom were hurled their keenest aud deadliest shafts, aud now the President of the United States with the foes at bis feet supplicat ing Lis pardon, and charged with the highest duties aud responsibilities ever imposed on mortal mau. He meets the visitor cordially, and epeaks in the softest tone aud in weli measured sentences. There was little formality—the usual greetings and thence wc passed to questions of graver moment. However reticent he m3y be on some is aucs, he seems to have no reserve as to the policy he conceives to be the true one to briDg back the insurgeut States. He discussed the position of those States and their people with great intesest and occa sional warmth, aud with a frankness that left no doubt as to his purpose. He holds that they were never oat of the Union ; that secession, however accomplished as a fact, canoot be accomplished in law ; that the supreme authority of the govern ment in those States was net overthrown by rebellion, hut simply iu abeyance, and of course it logically follows his premises that, since rebelliou has ceased,the States aesutne their proper place iu the Union and restoration is accomplished. This,in brief, was the stand point from which the President discussed the question of recon struction for more than an hour, and an ewered suggestive objections at times with an earnestness that demonstrated how ar dently he is working to give success to his policy. I could not but rcmiud him that his theory stripped all traitors of the pro tection they m g'lt claim as public ene mies; that it would stamp as guilt? of treason within the law, every man who 1 aided the rebellion, and of necessity de mand at Ins hi n Is commensurate punish ment for what ho must hold as unmitiga ted crime—as appa ling murder and des olation for which there is no extenuation to be plead. "Ycu have," I added, "given us on every baud the Nation's monu ments of Mercy—where will be its mon uments of Justice ? Davis is a proclaimed assassin, as well as traitor—his agents Lave died, low are the principals to atone to a people doubly bereaved in their homes and in their chief sanctuary of power?" To this the! resident answered with much animation that the treasure of, and the time for, aUnem#nt were yet for the fu ture to determine. I shall uot soon for get the emphasis with which he declared that the South must come hack and be a part of us, and "it must come," he added, "with all its manhood—l don't want it to come eviscerated of its manhood!" To this proposition abstractly there could be BO objection made. We want the South with all its manhood, which I would conceive to be the Southern people with their treason abandoned and their crimes pmisbed—not punished revengefully;; out ie imitation of the Guillotine of France. A or the Inquisition of SpaiD ; but by mak ing the leaders who conspired to over throw the government, strangers to its booors and its citizenship and thus thro' life the monuments of the power, the jus tice and the magnanimity of the mighti est nation of the earth. The President said that such may be the measure of punishmcut'; that he had pardoned but lew who would come under such a rule ; that there are exceptions to all rules, and there were both civil functionaries and army officers who might be pardoned with propriety, lie said that he had not yet gone as far in his amnesty, either general or special, as Mr. Lincoln pro posed. He explained what is not gener ally known, that his pardons are maiuly of business men, many of whom were Union men, who must have pardons to enable them to sell or mortgage their I lands, or to get credit io their business operaiions } and added tbat he had not : vet reached the consideration of such | cases as Lee, Stephens, Longstreet, Beau regard and others of that class. * He spoke freely of the proposed trial of Davis, and said that as yet the govern-; ment had not taken any steps in the mat ter. If he is to be tried in Richmond.: the trial must necessarily be postponed' until the civil authority is fully restored,: | and then it will be a question for consid-! eration under the condition of affairs which may at that time exist. As Vir- i ginia is still practically uuder martial law, certainly wholly uuder military rule, I judgo that many moons may wax and wane before we can have a great State trial. Ido not question the wisdom of! this delay, for it is certainly better for the government to avoid the danger of defeat! in attempting to convict of conservative 1 treason in Washington, than to force a trial which might afford a technical escape for Davis and leave the great questions undetermined. If I were going to guess on the subject, I would say that Davis is more likely to be paroled duriug 1 the next year than to be tried, and if he is ever hanged, he must do it himself. The President is clearly adverse to con-; fiscation and that question is practically! settled. Whatever might be the views of Congress, confiscation is not possible with an Executive determinedly hostile! to it and with the pardoning power in his 1 hands. 1 infer, however, that on this point Congress will harmonize with the l Executive, as a number of even the rad ical leaders, such as Greely and Sumner.! openly oppose it. If our credit can be sustained otherwise I aiu cooteut. Five; years hence we shall all be wiser cn tbat point than now. I believe that the President will wield all his power to effect the admission of the representatives of the rebellious States into Congress during the next session. The Senate being organized the question cannot come up there until it i 3 brought up in order • but there will be a etroDg pressure to force the admission of the Southern members by placing their names on the roll when the House meets. This Mr. MoPherson will uot do, and on all ' votes of instructions he will call only those who are returned from State? clear- Sly entitled to representation. The law forbids hint to do otherwise, and he will be faithful to it. The question of their admission will then agitate the House, ! and I fear make a sad breach between the President and Congress. The South is encouraged by the petition of the admin istration to be importunate in its demand for admission, and it is not improbable that it will in the end be admitted. 1 : have seldom seen Congress struggle against power and hold out to the end. The his tory of such conflicts is always dotted with frail ones who fall by the way. I have ever felt that the revolted States should take no part in the government they vainly 6ought to destroy until all is sues arising from the war, and all its logi cal results, should be settled by faihful men. To the victors, not to the van-! quished—to the friends, uot to the foes of the government does this duty beloog, : and if it shall be otherwise, there are ma ny who will tremble for the sefety of the I Republic. On the future of the freedmen the Pres i idem talks well. lie displays more sense thau sentiment on the question,and moans to solve the problem fairly as demanded by civilization and humanity. Of their ability to win a position that will enable them to be incorporated into our system of government as citizens, he is not emi nently hopeful, but feels that it must be fairly tried with an open field for the ue gro. That failing, he looks upon colon ization as the only alternative It would be foolish to disguise the fact that the President,both by word and deed, disclaims the position of a partizan Exec utive, and that he is not insensible to the thtteriug approval of his administration by the Democratic party. Ido not mean by this that be is in sympathy and fellow ship with them ; but I do mean that he is uot wholly in sympathy against them; and .he will,l feel warranted in saying, adhere to the political fortunes of the Southern States without regard to politital conse quences. This may or may not sever him from the party that sustained and cherish ed him in the darkest days through which he passed, and that won him the highest honors cf the Nation through a flood of obloquy ; but ifit does, I iufer that he will acceptthesituatioo. Ileevidently means above all other things, to compass the ad mission or the Southern members and the complete restoration to power of those States, and if Massachusetts and South Carolina can strike hands over the same administration, then will we have a faith ful President and a harmonious country. If not —I leave the future to tell thesiory. "Where in ell this reco?d soon to be made. up the Nation shall see that "treason i? the greatest of crimes ami must be pun ished," is not to my mind apparent. — A. K. M'CLURE, in the Chanibersbury Repository. The Presidents Plan. We have seen the Copperhead Democ -1 racy for the past few months passing re solutions, making speeches and writing editorials, all in high praise of President Johnson and his plan'of reconstruction. These laudatory tributes may have caused some slight misgivings at times, lest he I might falter aod possibly mistake his duty. But these| ardent and sincere friends seem to have overdone the thing. Seizing upon his readiness to pardon re pentant rebels, and his refusal to make negro suffrage a condition of re-admissiooi i indicative of his sympathy with their views, they thereupon concieved the hope !of tempting him to forget the devoted loyalty which has shed lustre upon his name during the great rebellion, and join at this last day, the ranks of those who stiuck hands with traitors and denounced the war as a failure. To that end they resolved and his praise, and sent Dean Richmond to manipulate and circumvent and magnetize the man who contrcles the sword and the purse— especially the purse—and capture him and briughim bodily into the Democratic camp. The plan of the President for pacification, conciliation and reconstruc tion.was most especially excellent. Thus they committed themselves. Well, the plan so far as developed ap pears to be about right. It will satisfy all sensibie people, aud if the Democracy also are satisfied, we congratulate them and the rest of mankind upon their con version. The Southern States, in order to be reconstructed according to the President's "plan," must — 1. Declare thcir'ordiDances ofsccesion null and void. 2. Kepudiate all debts contracted iD behalf of the rebellion. 3. Pass laws for the protection of the colored man's rights as a freeman. And, 4. Katifyjthe Amendments to the Con stitution abolishing and forever prohibi ting slavery. Here is a platform sufficiency sound and loyal. Congress can scarcely im prove it, and rather than "stay out in the cold" the lately insurgent States will readily adopt it. We trust the Democrats are as well pleased with it, now they know what it is, as they were before,and that by speech and pen and vote they will give it their hearty support. — Lancaster Examiner. INDEFINITELY POSTPONED. The i Pittsburg Commercial is of the opinion : that the " Tylerizivg" of Andrew John i son has been postponed indefinitely The idea and hope existed only with the Democrats and some few ridiculously rad ical papers, which made up by virulence what they lacked in truth. If we mistake not, the time ha 9 passed when Mr John son would have his back quite turued on the party that elected him, and himself in full communion with the Democracy. Judging from the recent elections, instead of the President losing himself in such a vortex, the Democratic party has gone out of sight, with the smallest possible chance of ever appearing agaiu. Ii is to be hoped that gentlemen with weak nerves on the Republican side, and gentlemen with great expectations on the Democratic side, will cease to concern themselves about the course of the President. Tho National Intelligencer of thol4th inst., says that at a conservative meeting in New Creek, Virginia, last week, the leading Democratic orator uttered the fol lowing sentiment:—"The assassination of Abraham Lincoln was a merciful dispen sation, was a merciful dispensation, but it would be a still more merciful dispen sation if his unworthy successor, Andrew Johnson,should be assassinated." He has since been made the subject of au arrest, and is now in Cumberland jail. Negroes voted, in Pennsylvania, up to the adoption of the Dew Constitu tion, in 1838. Wc have never learned | that their so voting made them the social j equals of the whites, or that they carried off in wcdiock the white young maidens of those days. However, as Copperheads are so apprehensive that negroes would become their equals and marry them if admitted to the ballot box, wo are not sure we can favor thr clothing of them with the privilege. On the distinct ques tion of allowing intelligent colored people to vote, we do not see any great objec tions to it; but if the iutermarrage of them and Copperheads is to accompany the voting, we shall have to reffect furth on the subject before expressing an opin- Gov.

WHEHEAS, it has pleased Almighty God during the year which is now com ing to an end, to relieve our beloved coun try from the fearful scourge of civil war, and permit us to secure the blessing of pence, unity and harmony, with a great enlargement of civil liberty ; And whereas , our Heavenly Father has also during the year graciuuiy averted from us the calamities of foreign war, pes tilence and famine, while our graneries are full of the truits of an abuudant season ; And whereas , "righteousness exaltetl. a nation, while siu is a reproach to aoy people j" Now therefore be it known that I, Andrew Johnson, President of the United States, do hereby recommend to the peo ple thereof, that they do set apart aud observe the first Thursday of December next as a day of National Thanksgiving to the Creator of the Universe, for these deliverances and blessings.
