CLEVELAND, Sept. 19.—At the even
ing session of tho Soldiers' Johnson
Convention yesterday, the following
resolutions and address were adopted:—
Hon. L. D. Campbell, from the Com
mittee on Resolutions, reported the fol
lowing platforni, which was adopted
with immense cheering:
The Union soldiers and sailors who
served in the army and navy of the
United States in the recent war fur the
suppression of the insurrection, the
maintenance of the Constitution, the
Government, and the flag of the Union,
grateful to Almighty Gud for His pres
ervation of them through the perils
and hardships of civil war, and for His
mercy in crowning their efforts with
victory, freedom and peace, deploring
the absence from their midst of many
brave and faithful comrades, who have
sealed with their life-blood their devo
tion to the sacred cause of American
nationality, ar4d determined now as
heretofore to stand by the principles
for which their glorious dead have fal
len, and by which their survivors have
triumphed, being assembled in Nation

Second. That our object in taking
up arms to suppress the late rebellion
was to defend and maintain the su
premacy of the Constitution, and to
preserve the Union, with all the dig
nity, equality, and rights of the sev
eral States unimpaired, and not in any
spirit of oppression, nor for any pur
pose of conquest and subjugation ; and
that whenever there shall he any arm
ed resistance to the 'Awfully constitu
ted authorities of our National Union,
either in the South or in the North, in
the East, or in the West, emulating
the self-sacrificing patriotism of our
revolutionary forelitthers, we will again
pledge to its support our lives, our for
tunes, and our sacred honor.
General Este, from the same com
mittee, ,reported a lengthy address,
which was received with enthusiasm
r. adopted with Nveving of flags,
cheers, and singing "Rally Round the
Flag, Boys."
➢lore than fifteen months have elaps
ed since you were released from service
and permitted to return to your homes
with the assurance of the country that
your work was done, and that the Re
bellion was substantially suppressed.
For four years, on the ocean and in
fields stretching from Gettysburg to
New Orleans, you had fought in order
to restore the integrity of the nation,
and you rested from your toils with the
conviction that it only remained for
statesmen to rivet the broken bnnds
which you had laid together. You
knew that this task required wisdom
and deliberation; but you had a right
to expect that like your own, it would
be taken up promptly and conducted
with singleness of purpose.
You had yourselves left party ties
behind when you marched to the field,
and thenceforth knew only your coun
try. You had a right to demand that
in the peaceful completion of your
work they would follow yonr example.
You expected that those who had call
ed upon you to suppress not only rev
olution but the spirit of revolution,and
to vindicate the violated law, would
set a now example to the nation by a
strict adherence to their constitutional
power and a revival of the old spirit
of sacred obedience to law.
You expected, and after the perfor
mance of such services you had a pe
culiar right to demand, that your suc
cessors in the work of restoration
should not only devise measures which
should be just, but should propose them
at the season when they should be
practicable; and that by means of the
measures and the sympathies of the
North, the people of the South subjec
ted to all the penalties should long
since have been brought hack to the
performance of all its duties in this na
tion, and, which the vindication of the
law demanded, to a real participation
in its life. For more than a year you
have looked on in'silenec, and the work
fbr which you provided the opportu
nity has not been done. Your succes
sors have acted neither wisely nor in
That which would have been well
and wisely accomplished, if proposed
:it the proper time, has been made im
practicable by delay, and a condition
which it would have been of' doubtful
wisdom to impose at any time is at last
imposed when it is too Into. After you
had been withdrawn from the field,
because you had annihilated the power
of your opponents to disobey their Gov
ernment, au entire year was added to
their already long estrangement from
it before any conditions of return were
offered to them, and when these condi
tions were at last announced, they con
tained terms which proposed to make
the estrangement of a large portion of
par populatiou perpoinal. The youth
of the South ' who had never known
when the 14:hellion had commenced,
or what it was to share in the duties
and business if national citizens, have
grown to manhood and•influence in its
affairs and still are strange in their own
land and excluded from the instruction
which might make them patriots.
The union of these States, for which
these partisans domicil your lives not
too great a price, is yet as incomplete
as when you marched home, and by
their measures its restoration 'is still
indefinitely postponed. They say to
you, if our terms are not accepted by
the South we can wait. It becomes
therefore, your peculiar duty, since
you prepared the ground for this foal
work to inquire how it has been done
and to consider whether it is wise and
safe to wait. Meantime, while you
determine to wait or move, it is indis.
pensible first to 'armlet] yourselves in
a position of impregnable facts. The
power of the National Government
over the affairs of its insurgent citi
zens, except for purposes of judicial
punishment, is purely of a belligerent
character, and its belligerent right
concerning them is included in, while
it is also limited by, one of the grants
of the Constitution.
The Government is authorized to
suppress insurrection by military means
and these include all belligerent func
tions and capacities which may be nec
essary for that end. In the exercise
of its necessary belligerent right it is
as competent to require of its insur
gent citizonts as it would be to require
of a foreign enemy, not only the lay
ing down of arms, but the surrender
of every position which threatened a
renewal of the conflict. The right is
perfect and complete for its purpose,
but it is limited by its purpose. The
Constitution directs that armies and
belligerent law shall be used for the
suppression of insurrection. With this
complete suppression, which includes
the prevention of a renewal, the legiti
mate application of compulsion to their
future course as communities must
It is not true that in case of war this
Government acquires all of the bellig
erent rights known to international
law. It has only so much of that kind
of right over its own people as it finds
embodied in its own Constitution. It
derives from this source so much as is
necessary in suppressing insurrection,
and this does not include the right to
take and hold its rebellious citizens
and their territory as a conquest. It
is authorized to employ war to vindi
cate its old title to allegiance, not to
acquire a new ono. In accordance
with this rule, the President as Com
mander-inchief, compelled the insur
gents, after they had laid down their

institution of slavery, the agitation of
which had been . the cause of this war
and might be the cause of another; to
declare null and void their acts of se
cession, which had been part of their
belligerent action, and until rescinded
embodied a calm which threatened fu
ture conflict, and finally to repudiate
their war debts, the rceognization of
which would have been a hostile act.,
vindicating the legitimacy of insurrec
tion and threatening its renewal. The
institution of slavery, the ordinances of
secession and the maintenance of an
insurrectionary war debt, were strict
ly hostile positions, and threatened a
possible renewal of the war until they
should be surrendered. There could
be no complete surrender of the bellig
erent attitude of the insurgent com
munities of the South; therefore the
Commande-in Chief, clothed with the"
double functions of military command
er and of the civil execution of the laws
of the Union, compelled the surrender,
and at this point the belligerent pow
er of the National Government—the
power to apply compulsion in any form
to the political future of the lately re
volted States—was exhausted.
This legitimate and restricted use of
compulsion appeared to accomplish the
desired end. it is true that the sub
dued and impoverished people of the
South did not and could not at once
pass from hostility to friendship.
Their homes were darkened with sor
row which no sense of error could mit
igate•' their fields were cemeteries,
their farms were the burnt path of our
armies, and they could not love us in
the midst of their desolation. But they
know that the issuo of the appeal to .
arms had been determined fbeevor
against them. They saw that they
had lost by the war what they had at
'tempted by work to save. They had
suffered too much to dreme of renew
ing the strife, and seeing no future be
fore them but that of citizens of the
United States they were ready to re
turn to their alle , iance as defined to
them anew by the event of the strange.
When Congress first assembled they
had acquired a temper towards the
National Government as healthy as it
was possible for any people to attain
after such a conflict and such experi
ences. in this respect the• results of
the war was unexamped in the history
of nations. Their disposition was gov
erned by their acts. They had upon
the requirements of tho Commander
in -Chief, -surrendered every position
which could truthfully be (loaned hos
tile to the Government, and by his ad
vi; -!0, not tinder his compulsion, they
went further, and in common with the
loyal States ratified the Constitutional
amendment which forever aholishes
slavery, and gave to Congess the pow
er, by appropriate legislation, to pre•
vent its re-establishment. They might
have conceded still more; but month
after month passed without aetion,and
meantime they were subjected to inil•
Italy government.
No system was ever bettor adapted
than our national Government to the
performance or the duties for which it
was designed; no government could be
less adapted to the regulation of affairs
in a subjected neighboring territory.

these have produced their natural ef

functions can only injure; it has alrea
dy injured ourselves. We cannot af

tional system, and by centralizing ren

hateful to the people 'of all the States,
North and South aliko; but the evils
of our present mistakes, committed in
the duties of a function for which the
Government was ever designed, dd not
wait the slow development of time.—
Their effect upon the subjected South
is a daily disaster. We are training
future citizens by the worst possible
instruction, arid every month's porsis•
tenet makes the evil plainer to us.
tt is manifest that the experiences
of this delay, and of nnrepublican life
under military constraint, the temper
of the people has become much less
commendable than it was at the con
clusion of active hostilities; that the
work of true reunion has grown more
difficult; that perils of our condition
only increase it. It is for you, there
fore, to ask whether the reasons for
this delay aro sufficient, and whether
the new conditions imposed by Con
gress aro likely to prove a final remedy
The manner in which those conditions,
the form of an amendment to the
national Constitution, have bona pre.
seated, not only to the people of the
South, but to the nation is without
precedent. For the first time in the
history of this Government proposi
tions without •conneetion have been
uuited in one amendment, and tho peo
ple have been denied the opportunity
of free choice concerning each. The
first section of this single article defines
citizenship of the United States. The
second lays down the basis of repre
sentatives. The third is in the follow
ing words:
No person shall be a Senator or Re
presentative in Congress or elector of
President and Vice President, or hold
any office,
civil or military, under the
United States, or under any State
who, having previously taken an oath,
as a member of Congress, or as an of
ficer of the United Stales or as a mem
ber of any State Legislature, or as -an
executive or judicial officer of any
State, to support the Constitution of
the United States, shall have engaged
in insurrection or rebellion against tho
same, or given aid or comfort to the
enemies thereof. But Congress may,
by a vote of two-thirds of each louse,
remove such disability.
The effect of each of these utterly
disconnected propositions is made to
depend upon the acceptance or rejec
tion of the whole. It seems incredible
tliat those who insisted upon thus con
necting them could have expected that
they would be ratified. The Southern
people, after following their political
leaders into the late struggle, and
sharing the risk of their fate through
four years of terrible war, are called
upon to aid the proscription. What
ever punishment their bodies may de
serve at the hands of the Government,
it is unintellible that statesmen should
have dreamed of asking their associ
ates and followers to inflict that pun
ishment upon thorn, especially a pun
ishment of lasting disgrace more terri
ble than any which the Government
itself is authorized to impose. If in
the midst of their errors the people of
the South retain the ordinary fidelity
of comrades in arms to each other—
the common sentiment of honor which
rules all companionship—they will not
voluntarily desert the men whom they
have voluntarily and steadily followed
amid so many perils. They will not
accept this third section of the amend
ment, and they are forbidden to accept
the other without it. We believe that
the only effect of such a proposition
will be a prolonged exclusion of the
South from the practice of self govern.
mont and the training of patriotism;
but if they could be persuaded or con
strained to accept it we two at a loss
to perceive the benefit to be derived
from it, because no act of Congress,
nor anything contained in the propos
ed amendment gives any pledge or as
surance that the adopton of those
amendments will secure the admission
of loyal representatives from the
Southern States now excluded or the
recognition of their constitutional re
lations to the Government of the Uni
ted States.
The preamble and resolution adopted
in the case of Tennessee do not com
mit Congress to the restoration of the
Union, should their example be follow
ed at once by every other Southern
State. It is evident from the course
pursued by the extreme inen whourgo
these amendments, and from the senti
ments enunciated by them that it, is
their fixed purpose, even if the amend-
Merits be adopted, to still insist upon
the political equality of the colored
race as a condition precedent to ad
mitting loyal representatives from the
Southern States lately in Rebellion.—
The partizans of these conditions at
tempted to excite the indignation and
alarm of the country by declaring the
readmission of the South without
them is an abandonment of all the
dear-bought fruits of the war. It is
not for the soldiers and sailors of that
war to shrink front being Wise lost they
should be suspected of insulting the
graves of their comrades, and forget
ing the objects for which they suffer
ed so much.
They know that there is a progress
in the life of this nation, and t41 ! ,1-,
thoro is a Uod who animates that life,
and they hold that fear to be as infidel
as it is cowardly. Nations never die
in their adolescence. The manhood
which this people has vindicated in
war will not lichen and perish in
peace. The South cannot, it it would

North, with its sense of JUstice, its
faith in true Democracy; its vigor and
industry and vast wealth, must inevit
ably rule this land, but it will secure
and benefieially exorcise that rule only
by the same process which govoMM all
true civilization=-not by force. If 'fear
is entertained that the' 'Southern peo

that they desire adthission to the na

hove is a continued exclusion by,means
of the proposed amendment, which
will not be ratified. Their exclUsion
cannot he permanent.
This people will not suffer it to be
lasting, and they will return at last
without those conditions, but still less
inclined to patriotism and good faith.
They are Americans and they haVe at
least the weakness common to the na
tion and to them ' as it would be to us.
Exclusion from tiro Union and from
complete self-government is disorgani
zation politically and socially. The
freedmen among them the rest of the
nation might suffer by everything
which elevates it. True, we .do not
believe - the people of the South will
violate the good faith which they have
pledged to us. In the National Union
Convention at Philadelphia more than
three hundred Southern delegates,
bolding influential positions at home,
claiming to represent, arid, as wo be
lieve actually representing constitu
encies who can make good their pront
ises, cordially co-operated with the
North in pledging that Convention and
the people that the public debt of the
United States should forever . , remain
sacred ; that the insurrectionary debt
should riot be paid, and that the rights
of the freedmen should be pi:oVected.
Wo believe that the men who- eiade
these elections will keep them ; ; wipe

that the Soldiers of the Sonthaien

of their cause inen'fof personal

dwell to violate' promises given instil . °
most solemn forms. We hold, then,
that no reason ha'S been giVen which
can justify an adherence to the course
which has been proposed by Congress,
or for a further continuance of the
present unhappy condition of the
country. If the same class of men who
have established this policy shall be
returned to the next Congress, that
condition will grow worse for two
years longer. Who can estimate the
evils which will meantime have fallen
upon all races in those communities as
well as ourselves ? It is our duty to
remember that the Government is not
the embodyment of perfect theories,
but is a practical business, and deals
with the wise and unwise, the well and
ill-disposed, as a mingled mass of that
civilization which Is a. growth, and not
the result of force. .11re believe that
nationality with its distribution of
I powers between the central and, local
Governments, is the chief instrumen
tality and is the best blessing of polit
ical and civil life for all races and com 7
munities in this land, and.that our first
duty to all is to see that it is as promp
ly as possible Fo-establißlied. By means
of it we shall accomplish not only peace
and safety, but justice to the nation
and the freedmen. Upon all of these
sacred rights we shall insist.
We speak as soldiers because we be
lieve that an appeal from us to the
brave men who met us in battle to
unite with us in giving peace to our
common country, in fulfilling pledges
which have been made and guarantee
ing to the freedmen the rights which
honor and humanity enjoin will not
be made in vain. We shall ask and
expect that they, like ourselves will
unite in maintaining the law, preser
ving the peace, vindicating good will
and upholding the honor and integrity
of our common country.
We want a Union not merely in
name, but a Union in fact; not a Union
merely of geographical lines, but a
Union of hearts. Such a Union wo
fought to maintain, such a Union wo
wish to enjoy. By it alone can our
nation accomplish its true mission and
fulfill its true destiny. So believing
we anxiously and earnestly appeal to
you, our former comrades in arms to
assist in the great work of pacification.

not as Republicans, but as patriots and
national Union men.

Edward Bates, and the President.
Ono of the most interesting events
connected with - the sta.,y,,of the Presi
dent at St. Louis was the occasion., of
his visit to the,ex 7 AttO'rny General of
the United States, llon ,Ed ward Bates.
The Republican thus relates it : ,
It is most of our- citizens
that tlib health "OfAr. Bates in very
precarious. Ho is suffering from a
disease of the lungs that is liable to
produee' death r at al Most any hour. On
Saturday at ono O'clock, according to
previous arrangement, Capt. James B.
Bads called at the Lindell Hotel for
the President, Seeretary Seward 'and
Secretary Wells, and with theni pro
ceeded to the house of Mr. Bates. The
latter seemed much affected on seeing
his distinguished associates,and thank
ed them most feelingly for their visit
to ono who, ho said, with a dying men.
He spoke, however, with the greatest
cheerfulness of his expected dissolu
tion. Having lived threescore years
and thirteen, he had three more years
than he was entitled to. His remarks
to Mr. Seward ware exceedingly touch
ing. He had never expected to see him
again, and this was just so much clear
gain for him. Mr. Welles he addressed
as one who was near to him . by' ties of
friendship and 'mutual trial beyond
what ha could express. He spoke, to
the President as one who had. greater
weight of cares and responsibilities
than any fifty Men In the nation, and
thanked God fer believing that' he was
ono of the Most worthy' that could
have been selected' to perform his obit
gations to the whole country. .
The President, at parting; assured
Mr. Bates that his hist interview with
him in Washington was fresh' in his
memory,' as well as each word of good
advice and encouragement he, bad
then given him, and that he could, not
express the pleasure :it gave him 'of
having it in his power now to do him
self the honor of calling to see hiin.
The parting of Mr. Bates and 'Mr.
Seward was exceedingly touching, but
the kind words of each cannot be re
called.: The eyes of both were Mois
tened, and the deep feelings with
which all four of these great statesmen
were affected will long be remembered
by those who witnessed the farewell
visit to the revered and honored pa
triot of Missouri.
