the policy of President Johnson. It says :

Dash its ends, they will go into.auother
year'S war. We tell the President
that hie faith is leading to blood. The on
hope of the black man is in the ballot.
President Johnson denies him this, and
orders the Southern governments to be
composed entirely of white men. He has
shays professed to be a Democrat, but
pow he wants to establish an aristocracy.
Some have laid the basis of aristocracy
in wealth ;,others iq, ancestral titles ;
but President Johnson thinks:a skin aris
tocracy will be the best. In some States
the blacks are a majority of the people.—
They have just .asgood aright to theohief
control of those States as the Caucasian
races have to the phief Control of the oth

favor of President Johnson's 'alga asser
tion that be was pnrsningstwreriliall
of Abraham' Uncoils; will be taken fro
the pen of John W. Forney. On the 28th
of September, 1865, he says :
"No statesman who watches the pro
gress, of public affairs, fails to ask himself
whether, had Abraham Lincoln lived, he
would have pursued the course which is
unquestionably the settled policy of Pres
ident Johnson. It is instructive as we
trace the career of the departed Presi-
dent, to see how little of the partisan per
vaded his action, and how much of the in
dulgent and forgiving philanthropist,. Ite
did'nothing in anger, and was disposed to
treat, the arrant offender with mercy ra•
ther than respond to the load cry for ven
geance on the part of many who were his
true ftlends. .It 18 not unjust to either
side to say that Abraham Lincoln never
really came up to the expectations of
what are called the earnest men,' and
that his very last public utterance was an
unconscious criticism of their connsel,and
au undoubted difference from their poli
cy. This utterance was his speech from
the window of the White House on the
evening of tho 11th of April, three days
before he eras assassinated. A single ex-
tract from this speech will show how ir
resist ably the motives and necessities that
brongbt Abraham Lincoln to this belief
have modeled the deliberations, and af-
fected the measures of Andrew Johnson."
Before we copy this speech of Presi
dent Lincoln, we will analyze the remarks
of Col. Formy in relation thereto. Here
he pays a tribute of respect to - the depar
ted President, and eulogized those virtues•
in him which are now considered as vices
when possessed by President Johnson.—
He was indulgent and forgiving, doing
nothing in anger or revenge, and was dis
posed to treat the Southern people with
mercy rather to respond to the loud cry
for vengeance on the part of many of his
In the next number we will give some
specimens of- the "load cries for ven
geance against the people of the South,to
which President Lincoln gave no re
sponse. They were the same outcries as
those which Issued from the torch-and-
turpentine party, to which President.
Johnson refuses to respond. Mr. Forney
says Abraham Lincoln never came up to
the expectations of the • earnest men'—
that is, he never came up to the expecta
tions of the men who were earnest for
revolution—earnest in overturning the
government and establishing a despo
tism ; and the very last speech which tell
upon the ears of a listening audience, was
au undoubted difference from their poli
What clearer proof is wanting than is
given in these confessions . of.Mr. Forney,
that the policy' of the radicalsistlifferent
from the policy of Abraham Lincoln, and
that Andrew Johnson, instead of his tra
ducers, is pursuing the path marked out
by his predecessor ? Does not Mr. For
ney acknowledge that up to September,
1865, President Johnson had remodeled
his acts after the pattern set by President
Lincoln, arid that all his measures were
affected or influenced by the policy com
menced before he was called in to the
After quoting the last speech of Mr.
Lincoln, Mr. Forney continues thus :
" There is not a word in this plain state
ment of a knotty question that may not
be used as a key to open some of the dif
ficulties that surround the present politi
cal situation. Recollect, Abraham Lin
coln spoke before all the armies of the re
bels had yielded, and in advance of many
of the other gratifying results of the sur
render of Lee. He could- not know bow
rapidly the whole Southern people would
submit to the national authority, and that
there would have have been so much ri
valry on their part to rush back to their
duty. It was scarcely within the scope
of his argument lo suppose that the ob
to the restoration of the Union
would come from without those States ;
from those who had been contending to
bring them back to their proper places,
and to restore things to their proper sta
tus. Will not the refusal to admit the
reconstructed States cover 'their territo
ries with new disorders and new distress
es, and afflict the whole nation with new
vexations ?" And be adds that " not one
i•among the Radicals ever denies that
President Johnson is following the exact
policy of President Lincoln in his meas
ures for reconstructing the Union."
In the next number we will show how
these Radicals turned with disgust from
the farewell address of Abraham Lincoln
aria' damored for Butler; and prove that
all the disorders and distresses which
afflict the nation are directly attributable
to the doctrioefraf:thel4v6l4Lionists of
America . who are, ire siding ,in the foot
'steps of the ItevalugcMists of France.

What a Poet sees on the Itlisootal River,
B. F. Taylor writes in the Chicago
The Missouri lurks behind that heavy
curtain of timber. It is five miles of ree-
dy meadow; as rich as anything Father
Nile ever gave the Pharoahs,then two
miles of woods, and then the Mad River.
You strike out into what is rather a
deep, damp grove than a road—a grove
through the rankest of grasses—and
straight across the plain. Millions of tall
sunflowers, standing as thick as they can
grow, border the way, and enough of
them thrust their East Indian faces into
the carriage to cover you with their taw
ny dust till you resemble the symbolical
rat that is always under the meal. The
stems of the grass just suggest the old
fashioned yellow, and make you think you
are surveying the field through a couple
of microscopes. Here and there a dozen
acres have been mown, and the windows
lie trailing about in the sun, but nothing
obliterates the wild, untamed look there is
to everything; the amphibious air of the
whole landscape, hinting very distinctly
at Missouri's capabilities. No bowlders
about you; no bluffs before you, but one
broad lap of uttermost fitness. Lonely
cottonwoods, and mighty, oaks stand
silently about. Great black oaken shafts
with their leaky capitals, begin to show
gaudily. Elms spring into the air with
their graceful sculpture of arches. The
road grows ruggeder; you go into the
eclipst; the shadow of the woods comes
down as Homer's God of silverbow came
—" like night"—and you wonder at the
magis of the earth that can three perspire
a tree at every pore. If any bodrthinks
that figure violent be can sooth iiit.
Sprinklings of walnut, ash, elm and lin
den among the oaks and cottonwoods—
the great fellows you feel like taking off
your hat to. They are the bassoon, clari
on and trumpet pipes of a mighty organ.
The way is tangled with living things:
Grape vines are climbing, and, as yotr
balffancy, frolicing about. Sweet Will
lams and tribe after tribe of flowers, fresh
and beautiful, smile out at you from bush
and briar. Gooseberries, mulberries,
raspberries, tempt you in their season;
mosses, three ply and all velvet, cushion
the logs along the way as if somebody
had expected you. It is all the true bar.

crawling out of some oozy bed would

faintly hear rush as of hurrying waters,.
but clearly over it the toarse, rough
snort of a steam saw mill on the river
bank, that, day and night, with short and
feverish breath, rives out the ties from
the cottonwood for the railroad across
the continent. Look round again upon
the great columns of this first temple; for
no man shall behold them long. Here for
cent nries they have been silently grow
ing, to lie at, last on the road bed of the
New World's thoroughfare. Listen again
and you shall hear the tick of the axes
that, like so many solemn clocks, are tim

have longed to see, even as saints the

" Missouri" since early childhood. You
have traced its course a thousand times,
with a small forefinger, from the dim and

Peaked wigwams , like so many stark and:,

beyond Lake Michigan. You wondered
how anybody could have gotten there
without dying, and, having died, how he
could ever come back to tell it. It was
as inaccessible to your thought as the
