To avoid iiiijur.dorstnt'.ding, it may be
proper to say that this proclamation, so
far as it relates lo State governments, has
no reference to States w herein loyal Slate
governments have all the whilo been
maintained. And for the same reason, il
may be proper to further say, that wheth
er members sent to Congress from any
tionally, rests exclusively with the respec
tive Mouses, and not to any extent with
the Fixeciilite. And tlill further, that
this j roclamation is intended lo lament
the people of tho States wherein the
national authority has been suspended,
inci i Kin nn1 war power is still our main
reliance. To that pow er alone ran we look,
yet for a time, to give conli.Uino to the
pcoplu in the contested regions, that tho
insurgent power will nol again overrun
them. Until that confidence shall he os-tabli-died,
little can bo tlono anywhere lor
what is called reconstruction. Hence our
chiefest care must still be directed to Iho
army and navy, who have thus far borno
their harder part so nobly and well.
