petont to perform duties so important and
rcaponsible as those which have been so
UUOXpeOtedly tlllOWU Upon me
A, , a iR(ioatioo of any policy which
moy bo DUrsucd by me ;D ibo administra-
tio of tbe Government, I havo to say that
lbat must bt. cft for development as the!
adminis'ration progrcasos. Tho message
or declaration must he mado by tho acts
as they trnnpiro. Tho only assurance
that I oan give of tho future, is reference
to' the past. The course whioh I have
taken iu thf pat in connection with this!
rebelliou, must be regarded as a guaran
teed of the future, My pabt publio life,
whioh has been long and laborou. ha
been found, as 1 ih good cousoisnoe hn.
lieve, ujon a great principle of right
wliioh lies at ihe basis of all thiugi. Tb
best energies of my lifo havo been spent ii
endeavoring. to emabliah and porpetuati
the principles of fteo Government, bii
I believe that the Government, in passim
through its present perils, will settle dowi
upon principles consonant with populs
rights more permanent and enduring thai
heretofore. I must be permitted to say, i1
I understand tho feelings of my owii heart
that I h:ivo long labored to niuoliot nlo anil
elevate the condition of tho great nines ol

This has ben tbe foundation of toy po
litical creed, and I' feel that'll! the end I In
Government will triumph i nd tbm tiicat
great principles will bu permanently oe
tablished. In conclusion, geutletueu, lei
me say that I want your encoursgemeiil
and countenance. I shall atk and rely
upon you aud others in oarryiug the Gov
cromeu't'th;roub its present perils, I feel
iu making this request that it will b
heartily repondcd'to by you and all other
patriots' and lovers of tho rights and inter
ests of a free people.
