Maj. Gen. John W. Geary,
OF CUMBERLAND COUNTY
President Johnson Speaks Again
The latest speech from the President
crowds out our usual variety of read
ing matter, local and general; but as
these aro great changing times we live
in, as to the political checker board,
we give whatever the Chief Magistrate
has to say, occupation of our columns
to defend himself against the taunts
and jeers of his 'adtersaries. If it.
was not for the persistent opposition of
the-radicals, the President would be
heard less frequently and we would be
sated the pleasure of inserting his de
fence. While it gives us pleasure to
insert, we rest consoled with the belief
that it is our subscribers' will and
plettsure also to read whatever the
President has to say, and wo always
like to showa fair chance to those stig
matized and ridiculed unjustly. Some
of the radicals are frank enough to say
that the President has spoken more
sensibly than formerly; we had expec
ted to hear them asserting, however,
that it was more 'jumbles from our
besotted. President." Perhaps the en•
thusiastic support of the soldiers and
sailors has brought them to their sen—
ses. The Washington meeting shows
conclusively where the nations' brave
defenders stand, and how they feel to-,
wards those whom they did the most
towards subduing. "Home in bed" is
their cry to those who now treat loyal
and disloyal alike- in _the South—to
those who are 'treating the sacrificing
Union men of the South so ungratefully
by keeping them out of the balls of
Congress, and who desire to let the
disloyal men of the South go free if
they will only satisfy them by giving
universal suffrage to the colored men.
HOW FAR: THEY WILL GO.—Thaddeus
Stevens has made an attempt to take
ten thousand dollars out of the Nation
al Treasury for the benefit of Colonel
Forney, by a Congressional order for
an indefinite number of copies of the
Washington Chronicle. The Pittsburg
Commercial, in referring to this subject,
very truthfully remarks:
"If the Chroliicle is too poor to live
without such a thrusting of hands into
the Treasury, let it die,—it is not a
publication so valuable as to justify
such a proceeding: If the paper does
not need the money the country does,
—and if it did, the precedent would
lead to almost any amount of robbery,
on the progressive scale, hereafter. If
by passing Mr. Stevens's resolution,
Congresa would punish somewhat Mr.
Seward, (who has withdrawn some ad•
vertising heretofore enjoyed by the
Chroitfc/e,) it would punish the Treas
ury more. The resolution, when it
comes up, will be a good question on
which to call the ayes and nays."
The financial state <4 - Forney's paper
must be at a very low ebb when he
permits such a resolution to go before
the House to receive the support of
his only friend's. The radicals not only
try to sot aside the Constitution but they
would rob the Treasury for the pur •
pose of supporting their most earnest
advocates. - We await to see what his
friends in Congress will do for him.
THE PEACE PROP LAMATION.—The fol
lowing answer was sent by direction
of the President to Gen. Davis Wilson
at Augusta, Ga., who • asked whether
the Presidetit's proclamation removed
martial law in that State :

lamation does not remove martial law,

ant, however, to resort to military tri
bunals in any case where justice can be
obtained through the medium of civil
authority. "E. D.: - TQWNSEND,
"Assistant Adjutant General."
This should remove the impression
the radical journals strive to make that
the proclamation is an injury to the
freedmen because it removes the pro
tection of the freedman.• Tho freed
men will still be protected, and Presi
dent Johnson has done and will yet do
much to alleviate their sufferings.

tongs of tho U. S. Senate were about
to be applied, for using indecorous lan
guage before that body when more

apologized, and by way of explaining
his condition on the day referred to,
remarks : •
"That day the sun went down on my
wrath, and peace did not return until
the nest morning, when the sun was
high above the misty mountain tops,
when it came with penitence,and these
are penitential remarks."
klEir The President has approved the
joint resolution authorizing and direc
ting the Secretary of War to make im
mediate measures to preserve from des
ecration the graves of the soldiers of
the soldiers of tho United States who
fell in battle or died of disease in the
field and in hospitals during the war
of the rebellion, and to secure suitable
burial places in which the bodies may
be properly interred, and to have the
grounds Inclosed, so that the resting
places of the honored dead may be
kept sacred forever. •

THE PRESIDENT'S SPEECH
President Johnson said: It is not of
fectation in me to say that language
is inadequate to convey the heartfelt
feelings produced on this occasion by
your presence hero, and by the presen
tation of your sentiments. as expressed
by your representative in his address,
and in the resolutions which you have
thought proper to adopt. I confess
that, in the peculiar posture of public
affairs, your presence and address give
encouragement and e.mfidence to me
in my efforts to discharge the duties
incumbent upon me as Chief Magis
trate of the Republic, and in what I
have to say I shall address you in the
character of citizens, sailors and sol
diers. I shall speak to you on these
terms, and oh none others.
I repeat my thanks for the mallis
festation of your approbation and of
your encouragement. [Applause.]—
We are to day involved in one of the
most critical and trying struggles that
have occurred since this Government
was spoken into existence. "Nations,
like individuals, must have a begin
ning, must have a birth; in struggling
into existence a nation passes through
its first trying ordeal. It is not neces
sary for me now to carry your minds
back to the struggle when this nation
was born. - It is not necessary for me
to allude to the privations and hard
ships of those who were engaged in
that struggle to. achieve the national
birth. It is not necessary to point to
the blood shed and the lives lost in ac
complishing that result.
The next ordeal through which a
nation has to pass is when it is called
upon to give evidence that it has cap ,
acity, strength and power to maintain
itself among the nations of the earth;
in giving such_ evidence we passed
through the war of 1812 and through
the war with Mexico, and we passed
through all the struggles that have
since occurred up to the beginning of
the rebellion. This was our second
ordeal. But a nation has another test
still to undergo, and that is to give
evidence to the nations of the earth
and to our own citizens that it has
power to resist internal foes; that it
has Strength enough to put down trea
chery at home and treason within its
own borders. [Cheers.]
We have commenced that ordeal,
and I trust in God we will pass thro'
it successfully. [Cheers.] I feel com
plimented by the allusion of your rep
resentative that I stood in the Senate
in 1860 and 1361, when the nation was
entering on this third ordeal, and
raised my voice and handiagainst trea
son' treachery and traitors at home.—
[Cheers.] I stand here to day holding
to and maintaining the same princi
ples which I then enunciated. I stand
hero to day apposing traitors and trea
son, whether they be in the south or
in the north. [Loud cheers.] I stand
here to day, as I then stood, using all
my powers, mental and physical, to
preserve this nation in passing through
the third phase of its existence.
The organized forces and combined
powers that recently stood arrayed
against us are disbanded and driven I
from the field, but it does not follow
that there are still no enemies against,
our present form of government, and
our free institutions. [Great applause.
I then stood in the Senate of the Uni
ted States denying the doctrine of sep
aration and secession. I denied it
then as I deny now, that any - State
has the right of its own will to separ
ate itself from the other States and
thereby destroy the Union and break
up the government; and I think I have
given some evidence that I have been
sincere and in earnest; and now I want
to know why it is that the whole train
of slanderers, calumniators and tradu•
cers have been barking and snapping
at my heels. Why is it that they ar
ray themselves against me? Is it be
cause I stand on the side of the people?
And when I say the people I include
the soldiers and sailors. Why is it
they are arrayed in traducing and vil
lifying and calumniating me? Whore
were they during the rebellion ? [A
Voice—Home in bed!] In the Senate
I raised my voice against it; and when
it was believed that it would be to the
interest of the nation, and would as
sist in putting down the rebellion, did
I not leave my place in the Senate—
a place of emolument, ease, and dis
tinction—and take my position where
the enemy could be reached and where
men's lives were in danger ? (Cheers
and cries of"that's so.")
While I was thus exposed personal.
ly and publicly, and in every way,
some of my present traducers and cal
umniators were far removed from the
foe, and were enjoying ease and com
fort. But, I care not for them; I care
not for that slander; the foul whelp of
sin has been turned loose against me;
I care not for all that; and let me tell
you hero to day. that, although pretty
well advanced in life, I feel that I shall
V. 3 lorig enough to live down the
whole pack of traducers and slanderers
(Applause.) They • have turned the
whole pack loose to lower me in your
estimation. (Voices, "They cannot do
it!": "Tray, Blanch, and Sweetheart,
little dogs and all," come along snap
ping and snarling at my heels, but I
head them not. The American people,
citizens, soldiers and sailors know that
from my advent into public life to the
present moment, I have always stood
unyieldingly and unwaveringly by
them, and advocated and defended
their rights and interests. (Cheers.)
We are now in the nation's third or
deal. We are not yet through it. We
said that States could not go out of the
Union; we denied the doctrine of seces
sion, and we • have demonstrated that
we were right. We demonstrated it
by the strong arm. Yes! the soldiers
and sailors, God bless them ! have de—
monstrated by their patriotic hearts
and strong arms that States have not
the power to leave the Union. (Ap%
phrase.) What followed ? The Con
federate armies were overpowered and
disbanded, and there was a willingness
on the part of the people; of those
States to come back, to be obedient to
the laws and acknowledge the suprem
acy of the Constitution of our fathers.
For what have we passed through
this ordeal ? It was to establish the
principle that no States had the power
to break up this Government. It was
to put down the rebellion. The rebel
lion has been put down, and for what?
Was it to destroy the States'? (Voi
ces, "Never.") For what have all
these lives been sacrificed, and all this
'treasure expended! Was it for the
purpose of destroying the States ? No.
It was for the purpose of preserving
the States in the Union of our fathers..
It was for that that you fought; it was
for that I toilcdf not to break up the
Government, but to put down the re
bellion and preserve the Union of the
States. That is what we have been
contending for, and to establish the
fact that the nation can lift itself above
and beyond internal• foes and treason
and traitors at lrome
When the rebellion in Massachusetts
was put .down, did that put Massachu•
setts out of the Union and destroy the
State ! When the rebellion in Penn
sylvania was put down, did that de
stroy the State and put it out of the
Union? So, when the• recent great
rebellion was put down, and the Con
stitution and laws of the country were
restored, the State engaged in it stood
as part of the Union. The rebellion
being crashed and the law being re.
stored, the Constitution.bcing aeltn-ow
ledged, those Stales stand in the Uni
on, constituting a part of the glorious
and bright galaxy of stars. [Cheers.]
In passing through this ordeal what
has been done'? In Tennessee, under
the direction of my lamented predeces
sor, we commenced the work of resto
ration, and we succeeded, before I
came mre, in restoring the relations
which had existed between Tennessee
and the rest of the Union, wills one
exception, and that was the relation of
representation. I came to Washington
and under extraordinary circumstan.
ees, succeeded to the Presidential chair.
What then ? The Congress of the
United States hau adjourned without
presenting any plan. then proceed
ed as I had done in my own State, un
der the direction of the Government,
to restore the other States; and how
did we begin ? We found that the
people had no courts, and we said to
the judges, the district attorneys and
the marshals, "Go down and hold your
courts; the people need the tribunals
of justice to be opened." Was there
anything wrong in that ?
The courts were opened. What
else? We looked out, and saw that
the people down there had no mails;
they had been interrupted and cut off
by the operations of the rebellion. We
Said to the Postmaster General, "Let
the people have theilities.for !nail corn
munication, and let them begin again
to understand what we all feel and
think, that we are ono people." We
looked out again, and saw that there
was a blockade—that the custom hou
ses were all closed. We said, "open
the doors of the custom houses, and re
move the blockade; let trade and com
merce and the pursuits of peace be re
stored," and it was done. Wo thus
travelled on, step by step, opening up
custom houses, appointing collectors,
establishing mail facilities, restoring
all the relations that had been inter,
rupted by the rebellion. Was there
anything - undertaken to be done here
that was not authorized by the Con
stitution ?—that was not justified by
the great necessities of the case ?—that
has not been clearly consonant with
the Constitution, and with the genius
and theory of the Government?
What remained to be done ? One
other thing remained to demonstrate
to the civilized and pagan world that
wo had passed successfully through the
third ordeal of our national existence,
and proved that our Government was
perpetual. A great principle was to
be restored which was established in
our revolution. When our fathers were
contending against the power of Great
Britain, what was one of the principal
causes of their complaint ? It was
that they were denied representation.
They complained of taxation without
representation. [Cheers.] One of the
great principles laid down by our fath
ers, and which fired their hearts, was
that there should be no taxation with
out representation. How, then, does
the matter stand ? Who has been
usurping power? Who has been de—
feating the operation of the . Constitu
tion ? What now remains to be done
to complete the restoration of thOse
States to all their former relations un
der the Federal Government, and to
finish the great ordeal through which
we have been passing? It is to ad
mit representation, and when we say
admit representation, what do we
.mean ? Wo mean representation in
the constitutional and law abiding
sense as was intended at the beginning
of the Government, and where don
that power lie? The Constitution de,
Glares, in express terms, that each
House, the Senate and House of Rep
resentatives, each acting for itself,shall
be the judges of the returns, elections,
and qualifications of its own members.
It is for each House to settle that
question under the Constitution, and
under the solemn,4anction. of an path.
Can wo believe - that • - iiither House
would admit anyMernber into its body
to participate in the-legislation of the
country, who was net:qualified and fit
to sit in that body andTarticipate in
its proceedings? They have the pow
er, not the two .7jjouSes, but each
House for itself. The Constitution
further declares thati;rto State shall be
deprived of its equal suffrage in the
Senate of the United States without
its consent. Tlion'where do wo stand?
All that is needed to .finish this great
work of restoration, is for the two
Houses respectively to determine these
questions. "Oh but some will say,
"a traitor might come in." The answer
to that is, that each House must be the
judge, and if a traitor presents himself,
cannot either Rouse know that ho is a
traitor? [Applause.] And if ho is a
traitor, can they not kick him out of
the door, and send him back saying to
the people who sent him "you must
send us a loyal man?" [Cheers and a
voice "that is lo.de."] Is there any
difficulty about that ? If a traitor pre
sents himself to either House, cannot
that House say to him "No you can
nat be admitted into this body; go
back ; wo wilt not deny your people
of the right of representation, but they.
must send us a loyal representative"
And when the Statesdo.send loyal
representatives, can you have any
better evidence of their fidelity to the
Constitution and Irrws?
There is no one learned in the Con
stitution and the laws who will say
that, if a traitor happens to get into
Congress, the body cannot expel him
after ho gets in. That makes assures
truce doubly sure, and conforms the
action of the Government to the Con
stitution of our fathers; hence I say
let us stand by that Constitution, and
in standing by it the conversant will
.be preserved. While you have been
contending against traitors, and treas
on, and secession, .trod the demolition
of the Union, I have been contending,
at, the saute time, a g ainst the consoli
dation of power here. [Cries Of "good!"]
I think the consolidation 'of power here
is equally dangerous with the separa
tion of the Slates: The one would
weaken us, and might run into anar
chy, whip the other would concen
trate and ran into monarchy. ,
• But there is an itlea abroad that one
man can be a desot—that ono man
can be a usurper—hut that a hundred
or two hundred men cannot be. Mr.
Jefferson, the apostle of liberty, tells
us, and so does common sense, that ty•
ninny and despotism can be exercised
by many more rigorously, more vigor
ously, and more tyrannically than by
ono. What power has your President
to be tiltyrant? Whitt can he do, what
can he originate? Why, they say, he
exercises the veto power. [Laughter.]
What is the veto power? [A voice—
To pot dnwn the nigger.] Who is your
President? Is he not elected by the
people through the elected colleges?
The President is nothing more than
the tribune of the people. His office
is tribunitial in its character. In old,
en times when tribunes were first elec
ted in the Roman republic they stood
at the door of the Reinan Senate,which
was then encroaching on the popular
rights and putting the heel of power
on the necks of the people. The peo
ple chose a tribune and placed him at
the door of the Senate, so that when
that body ventured on oppressive acts
he was clothed with power to say
"Veto—l forbid." Your President is
now the tribune of the people, and,-
thank God, I am • and I intend to its
sort the power which the people have
placed in me. [Cheers.] Your Presi
dent, standing here; day after day,and
discharging his duty,
is like a horse
on the treadmill, and because he dare
differ in opinion in regard to public
measures, he must be denounced as a
usurper and a tyrant. Can he origi
nate anything under the veto power?
The veto power is conservative in its
character and affirthative. All that
can be done by the :veto power is to
say when legislation improper,hasty,
unwise, unconstitutional—stay, stop
action; wait till this can be submitted
to the people, and them consider
whether it is right 'dr wrong. [Ap.
plause.] That is all there is in it; and
hence 1 say that tyranny and power
can be exercised somewhere else than
by the Executive. flo is powerless,
and all that ho can do is to check
to hold it in a state of abey
ance till the people can consider and
understand what is being done.
Then what has been done ? I have
done what I believed the Constitution
required me to do ; I have done what
I believed duty and conscience requir•
cd me to do. So believing, I intend to
stick to my position, -relying on the
judgment, the integrity and the intel
ligeuce of the masses of the American
people—tho soldiers and sailors ex
pressly. Then, for my life, I cannot
see where there is any tyranny. It is
very easy to imptu'inotives, and sus•
pact the purest and acts of a man's
If you come and propose a
certain thing, your Motives are sus
pected and condenined,and if you with
hold you opinion you are regarded as
being opposed to the matter, so that it
is very hard to move one way or the
other. So far as certain persons are
concerned, on all questions pertaining
to the interests of the great masses of
the American-people, the in them is
my hope and the salvation of the coun
try, lam with you citizens, soldiers
and sailors, who have sacrificed or per
illed more than the humble individual
who addresseS you. llas not my all been

everything sacred and dear to man
have been staked upon it, and can I
now he suspected of faltering at the
close of this third ordeal of So nation.
Where is he, in public or private life,
who has sacrificed more, or who has
devoted more of his time and energies
to the accomplishment of the great end
than I ? and I have done it from the
promptings of my oWllheart and con.
science. I believe it was right, and
with your help, and your countenance
and your encouragement, I shall go
through on that line; and when I come
to talk about soldiers and sailors,about
this to be done and that to be done, all
I want is for you to await and see, so
far as the future is concerned. Wait
and see if I do not stand by you, al.
though every other man may falter
I want to see measures of policy
brought forward that will advance the
interests of the people, and of that
portion of the people who constituted
the gallant and brave men who in both
branches of the service baVe upheld the
national flag, and sustained the coun
try in the recent struggle. I thank
you, gentlemen, for your encourage
ment ; I thank you for your counte
nance on this occasion. It cheers inc
and gives mo strength to perform the
work before me.
If wo are true to ourselves, if we
are true to the Constitution, the day
is not far distant when this Cievern
ment will be restored. Let us go on
and restore the Government; lotus en—
large the area of our commerce and
trade; let us not only inspire confi
dence at home, but respect abroad, by
letting the nation resume its career of
of prosperity and greatness. I know
that some will find fault with me, and
say I am too lenient and kind, and all
that. If 'we are all to be put to death
or punished or thrown away for one of
fense as for the second offense, and
were to be lost and excluded from so
ciety and communion with our fellow
men, how many of us would be left.
I have felt, when I have done wrong
and repented of it, that I was as sin
cere and honest as HI had never done
wrong at all. Then we most reason
with each other, and understand our
nature, and what is necessary to re
store peace and harmony to a distract
ed and divided people. In time or war
it is right to burn villages, sack cities
and desolate fields, to lay waste a
country and cripple and reduce the
enemy; but in time of peace the cons
verso of that course is - precisely the
right ono and the true policy, if a na
tion is to rebuild its pities, restore its
villages, renew its fields of agriculture
and-occupations of peace and prosper
ity to be restored. I know there are
some who have been at home calcu!a
ting during the war, and who bring to
the consideration of questions of peace
and harmony and the. occupations of
civil life all the feelings of resentment
which animated us when the excite
ment was up and running high ; but
take the brave men who sustained the
flag on the field and on the wave, and
you will find hotter feelings and better
judgment on these questions than you
will find with those who have been
sitting iii the closet and never smelt
gunpowder. Yes, from the private up
to the commanding general. they know
better how to treat the present cir
cumstances than any of those closet
patriots and humanitarian's. Thenony
countrymen, fellow citizens, soldiers
and sailors, let us rejoice _that peace
has come. Lents rejoice that the re—
lations of the States are about Iteing
restored. Let us make every effort
we can, on proper principles, to re
store the relations which existed be
tween -the Federal Government and
I thank God that peace is restored.
I thank God that our bravo men can
return to their families and homes and
resume their peaceful avocations ;
thank God that the baleful planet of
fire and blood which a short time ago
was in the ascendant, has been chased
away by the benignant Star of peace.
Now that the bow of peace is suspen
ded in the heavens, let us cultivate the
arts and relations of peace, and all
those associations which appertain to
men in peace.
Tim time is not distant when we
can have a political millenium,, a po.
litieal jubilee; and when we can pro
claim to all the nations of the earth
we are again a united people, and
that --AVO have triumphantly passed
through our third ordeal—having
peace at home, and power to hid de
fiance to all the world.'
Remember one thing, gentlemen,
that in my past life, though slander
ers may have misrepresented me, no
one can say that I ever deceived or
betrayed him. It will ho for you to
seo in the future who will redeem all
his promises, and who will be - most
faithful. I thank you, gentlemen, for
the compliment you have paid me.
As the President closed his , speech
ho was loudly and continuously cheer

ic airs, and the immense crowd dis
