Tho following ia tho Veto Mos.sagc
of the prOMilotit, coiuniuiiiciited to the
ITouso '.o-day :
To the tftiiisc of llcprcscntdlwcs :
A caioful examination of tho lull
panned by tho two Houses of Congress
entitled "An act to continue in force
ami to amend an act to establish a
burenu for the relief of freed men and
rcf'tigetB and for other purpose," has
CQiiviutfea. rati.. tJuit tho legislation
winch it proposes tvould not bo con
sistent wi'th the welfare of the coun
try, aud tint it is clearly within the
reasons asniyned in my message of the
ltUh of Febrmry last, returning with
out my signature, a niniilar measure
which originaUd in tho Senate.
It is not my jmrpose to repeat the
objections which I then urged. They
arc yet lresh in your recollection, and
can bo readily examined as a part of
tho records of ono branch of tho na
tional legislature. Adhering to the
principles set forth in that message, 1
now reaffirm them and the line of pol
icy therein indicated. The only ground
upon which this kind of legislation
can be justified is that of the war-making
power. The act of which this
bill is intended as amendatory was
passed during tho existence of tho war.
15y its own provisions it is lo termi
nate withiri ono year from tho cessa
tion of hostilities and tho declaration
of peace. It is, therefore, yet in ex

nd rights of citizenship, as well as
10 protection of persons and proper-
r, should bo conferred upon somo
ibunal in every .Stale or district
tribunal in every
where tho ordinary courso of judicial
proceedings was interrupted by tho
rebellion, and until the samo should
bo fully restored ; at that time, there
fore, an urgent necessity existed for
the passage of Home sueh4aw.
Sow, however, war has substantial
ly ceased ; the ordinary course of ju
dicial proceedings is no longer inter
rupted ; tho courts, both iStalo and
Federal, aro in full, complete and suc
cessful operation, and through them
every person, regardless of race and
color, is entitled to and can bo beard.
Tho protection granted to tho white
citizen is already "conferred by law
upon the freed man. Strongand strin
gent guards, by way of penalties and
puuishments, arc thrown around his
person and property, and it is believed
that amplo protection will be afforded
hint by duo process of law, without
resort to tho dangerous expedient of
"military tribunals," now that the
war has been brought to a close.
Tho necessity no longer existing for
such tribunals, which had their origin
in tho wiu-, grave objections to their
continuance must present themselves
to tho minds of ull reflecting and dis-
passionato men. Independently of
tho danger to representative republi
canism of conferring upon tho military
in timo of peace extraordinary pow
ers, so carefully guarded against by
tho patriots and statesmen of tho ear
lier days of the republic, so frequently
tho ruin of governments founded upon
tho same free principles, and. subver
sive of tlo rights and liberties of the
citizens, tho question of practical econ
omy earnestly commends itself to the
consideration of tho law-making pow
er. With an immense debt already
burdening the incomes of tho indus
trial and laboring classes, ho insepara
bly connected with tho welfare of the
country, should prompt us to rigid
economy and retrenchment, and influ
enco us to abstain from all legislation
that would unnecessarily increase the
lested livthts rulo of pound politi
cal wisdom. .1 can eo no reason for
thn establishment of tho "military ju
risdiction" conferred upon tho olliciuls
of tho Bureau by tho fourteenth sec
tion of tho bill. By tho laws of the
I United States, and of the difl'eront
btteBj competent courts, 1 edoral and
Stale, have been established, and are
now in full practical operation, liy
means of these civil tribunals, ample
redress is afforded for all private
wrongs, whether to tho prison or tho
property of the citizen, and "without
denial or unnecessary delay.. They
aro open to all without regard to color
or race. 1 feel well assured that it
will be belter to trust tho rights,
privileges and immunities of tho citi
r.en to tribunals thus established and
presided over by competent and im
partial judges, bound by fixed tules of
lav? and evidence, and where tho right
of trial by jury is guaranteed and se
cured, than to the caprice cr judg
ment of an officer of the Bureau, who,
it is poille, may be entirely ignorant
of liio principles that underlie tho just
adniinistration of tho law. There is
danger, too, that conflict of jurisdic
tion will frequently urise betwoenthc
civil courts and those military tribu
nals, euch having concurrent jurisdic
tion over tho person and the causo of
action the ono judicature adminis
tered and controlled by civil law, the
other by military. How is the con
flict to be settled, and who is to deter
mine between the two tribunals when
it arises? In my opinion, it is wise
to guard against such conflict by leav
ing to the courts and juries tho pro
tection ot all civil rights, and the
redress of all civil grievances.
Tlw fact cannot bo duied that since
tho actual cessation of hostilities
many acts of violence, such, perhaps
as had never been witnessed in their

Asanotherreason against tho necessity
of tho legislation contemplated by this
measure, reference may bo had to the
Civil Bights Bill, now n law of the
land, and which will bo faithfully ex
ecuted, so long as it shall remain un
repealed and may not be declared un
constitutional by courts of competent
jurisdiction. By that act i t is enacted
"that all persons born in tho United
States nnd not subject to any foreign
power, excluding Indians not taxed,
arc Sic rc by declared to be citizens of
tho United States, and such citizens of
every raeo and color, without regard

any way impaired, nnd heav penal

need not stato that that law did not
receive my approval, yet ita remedies
aro far more preferable- than thoso
1roposcd in tho present bill, the ono
leing civil and the cthor military.

which tho lands in tho "parishes of St.

citizens ol the United States are to bov
deprived of their property in a modo
contrary to that ol tho Constitution.
which declares that no person "shall
be deprived of life, liberty, or proper
ty, without duo process of law." As
a general principle, such legislation ia
uusale, unwise, partial, and unconsti
tional. It may deprive persons of
their property who are equally do-
serving objects of the nation's bounty
as those whom, by this legislation,
Congress seeks to benefit.
The titlo to tho land thus to be por
tioned out to a favored class of citizens
must depend upon the regularity of
the tax sales under the law as it exist
ed at the timo of the 6ale, and no
subsequent legislation can give valid
ity to tho rights thus, acquired as
against the original claimants. Tho
attention of Congress is therefore in
vited to a more mature consideration
of the measures proposed in theso
sections of tho bill. -
In conclusion, I again urge upon
Congress tho danger of class legisla
tion, so well calculated to keep the
ptiUic mind in a state of uncertain ex
pectation, disquiet and restlessness,
and to encourago interested hopes and
fears that the national government
will conlinuo to furnish to classes of '
citizens in tho several States moans
for .support and maintenance, regard
less of whether they pursue a life of
indolence or. labor, und regardless,
also, of tho constitutional limitations
of the national authority ia times of
pcaco and tranquility.
Tho bill is herewith returned to tho
'IIouso of Iteprescntatives, in which it
originated, for its final action.

that puritan abolitionism is determin
ed to have tho "anti-slavery God
the anti-slavery Bible and the anti
slavery Constitution" that Anson Bur

they would have. They havo made a

alter the Constitution, if successful,
will finish the work, and cap tho cli
max of their efforts, by securing to
that party theso three great ends for
which they have so long labored.
