Speaker ltccd on ConerestloiiAl Klcotlons
In the South,
Thero aro somo chargos so plainly
true that a clover lawyer abstains from
entering a pica of donlali ho moots
them by what Is called confession and
nvoldanco. That Is to say, ho confesses
tho commission of tho net sot forth In
tho complaint, but seeks to avoid Its
legal consequence by proof that neces
sity drove his client to Its Commission,
or that, though neflians technically un
lawful, It was In accord with publio
pulley or public morals. Upon theso
grounds ho pleads olther for tho acquit
tal ot tho accused or for mitigation of
his pi:r.lihinent. Tho charge of sup
pression of tho cjloved vote In tho
Southern tier Is of this kind. Tho act
is not donled. It was admitted as to
Louisiana by Its (lovcrnor, who boasted
of Democratic success "by violation of
tho constitution of this Statu and by
violation of tho constitution of tho
United States.'1 In somo form or other
It has been admitted confessed Is tho
better word by somo tinlmpoachablo
iiuthorlty resident In every district
wherein tho negro vote either forms a
majority by itself or In alllanco with
the vote of the while Hepuhllcans.
The ploa of confession universally Is
entered by counsol for tho Southern
tier, and just as universally Is It fol
lowed by tho plea of avoidance. By
way of avoidance of tho disgrace or pun
ishment duo the oITonso of disfranchise
ment b Stales of thoso who aro enfran
chised by tho Nation, It Is said that no
gro supremacy, which means govern
ment by tlio depraved, tho poor, tho Ig
norant, "must be averted." Boforo this
plea can bo considered it Is necessary
for the pleader to aver and prove that
the negro alono Is poor, Ignorant or de
praved, and we doubt much whether ho
can do this. The Demgtratlc Secretary
of Stato for Louisiana reported Illiteracy
to bo lncieaslng more rapidly among
thowhltc than among tho colored people
of that State. It also must bo averted
and proven that chances aro given to
tho moro progressive negroes to. ralso
themselves above tho loel of poverty,
Ignorance and depravity, and wo doubt
it any pleader for the South will daro
rlik proof of such an averment.
Mr. Speaker Heed, however, In the
North American llevlow, generously ad
mits all theso pleas by way ot avoid
mice as though thoy Were good, and
having admitted them, replies that If
good as to any ono ot tlio South
ern States, or as to all of thorn,
they yet aro bad as to tho Na
tion, tiranted, ho says, that wo allow
you to break tho National law In South
Carolina, or in Texas, or in Louisiana,
or Mississippi that you may havo a
"wliito mans government" for your
S'ales, tliero is no reason wliy wo
should allow you to break It In tho elec
tion of Congiessmeli, for it every dis
trict in which tho colored vote consti
tutes tho majority were to elect a negro
' thero yet would ho no "negro suprem
' ncy" in Congress. Xor even any ap
proach to It. Tho twenty districts of
I tho Southern tier, which, upon a fair
count and free vote aro Bopuhllcan. but

as great as any that can bo imagined,
lnvi been secured by suppression and
Intimidation of tho colored vote, which,

Thcro was n singular want ot ioglo
and proprloty in tho Confederate demon
stration at Richmond. Tho occasion of
dedicating a hiontimont to Oonoral LeH
did not warrant tho least glorification
of secession. That splendid soldier
fought against tho Union, it is true, but
ho did not bollevo in tho rebellion,
strlotly spoaklng. IIo Is on record oven
as lata as January 25, ltsoi, against that
molhod of adjusting tho difficulty bo-
tweon tho North and tho South, "lho
framers of our constitution," ho wroto
to his son, "would not havo exhausted
so much labor, wisdom and forbcnrancei
and surrounded It with so many guards
and securities, If it Was Intended to bb
broken by any member of tho Union at
will. It was Intended fof perpetual
linloil, SO expressed In tho preamble),
and for Iho establishment of a govern
ment, Hot a compact" Thoso weio his
honest vlows. lie was opposed to se

which Jeff Davis and others favored.
Within a month of tho attack on Fort

United States army, and General Scott
had tho utmost cotifldonco In his loy
alty. It was not until Virginia seceded
that ho resigned his commission on
tho theory that ho must go with his
State, right or wrong.
Tho (act is Indisputable that whon ho
drew his sword against tho Government
which had tducated, trusted and
honored hlhii he Wits actuated solely by
ft senso ot obligation to Virginia, ro
gardless ot his ow n feolltig as to tho
main question Involved. That Is to
say, ho was not at heart a secessionist
Ho went Into the war under protest, and
never at any tlmo expressed his ap
proval of tho undertaking, olther In
point of principle or as a matter of ex
pediency. There Is nothing to show
that ho changed h's vlnwn In any es
sential particular whon ho consented to
participate In tho rebellion. Tlio tech
nical Idea of supremo duty to his Stato
was tho ono that controlled him and
caused him to tat;o a Rtcp which was
contrary alike to his judgment and his
preference. IIo ient tt flgtlt for VI r

Ono fatal notion ot Stato allegiance, ho
would havo rcmalmd In tho 1-cdernl

I nomas and I arragut, did; and his tamo
would to-day bo a Northern Instead of
Southern possession. It Is a per
version of reason and a violation ot
truth to uo his namo as a representa
tive ono in connection with tho doc
trlno of secession. Ho fought on Uio
hide ot tho Confederacy, and did every
tiling In his power to glvo victory to
the armies that ho commanded; hut,
fiom flr3t to last, thero was a mental
reservation on his part concerning the
original lssuu. History will glvo him
