A Kind and Wise Policv.
The Government is pursuing a course of
policy which will greatly astonish the South
em people. Their false leaders have led
their too ea.5j faith to believe the most
monstrous falsities about the Government
and the Northern people. They now find
that instead of oppression and ruin, which
they have been taught to expect, they are
receiving protection and aid. Instead of
being terrified, overrun and dragooned by a
triumphant army, the army is quietly with
drawing, as soon as its work of suppressing
the rebellion is accomplished. If the peo
ple of the Southern States have the hearts
and reason of men, they will not fail to prof
it by this forbearance and clemancy. An a
buse of the kindness would ensare the se
verest visitations of justice. The people
should at oneu set their plow a-going, repair
- fences, hire laborers, work themselves, open
schools for their children and churches for
themselves, live economically, and plant ev
ery foot of ground. The kind and wise pol
icy of the Government favors this course as
the way for re turning prosperity.

The announcement of the assassination of
A.braham Lincoln, and the inauguration of
Andrew Johnson as President, fell like a
thunder-bolt, in a clear summer's day, on
the ears of a certain class of politicians in
every part of the country. They manifest
ed great consternation, but their minds evi
dently were only filled with new apprehen
sions for the future prospects of the South
ern traitors who had instigated the rebellion
against the National Government. At once
they expressed great fears that the policy of
President Johnson would '."be fully up to
the most radical standard," and vastly to
the detriment of rebels generally. More re
cently, however, these sympathisers with.
treason have somewhat modified their tone
towards our new Chief Magistrate. They
have suddei ly discovered, on a "second so
ber thought," that in former times Andrew
Johnson was a 'warm supporter' of Andrew
Jackson that he was a Democrat and a j
Southern man ; and hence, probably, would
be exceedingly lenient towards their "erring
brethren" of the South. In other words:
they began to harbor some slight, j et re
mote hopes that this "new President" would
follow their ilhuttrvjus example and, Judas
like, turn his back upon the best interests of
his country that he would permit the re
bellious States "to resume their functions as
members of the Union with or without
lavery" and that he would be so merciful
as even to allow the arch traitors to return
and enjoy all the immunities of citizenship
without restraint, and free them from all
punishment for their fiendish efforts to des
troy the Union.
Such presumptions are certainly without
any solid loundation. Air. Jounson nas
pursued, a firm and consistent course ever
since the first dawn of the rebellion ; and in
proof of this lact it is only necessary to refer
to his speeches made at different dates. In
the Senate of the United States, in March,
lSfil, he made use of this language:
"Mr. President, I was going on to re
mark, in reference to a general allusion to
treason, that if individuals were pointed out
to aue who were eugaged in nightly conspir
acies, in secret conclaves, and issuing orders
directing the capture of our forts and the
taking ot our custom houses, 1 would snow
who were the traitors, and that being done,
were 1 the 1 resident ot the United btates, I
would do as Thomas Jefferson did, in 1 800,
with Aaron Burr : I would have them arrest-
ed,and, if convicted, within the meaning and
scope of the constitution, by the Juenial
God I would execute them. Sir, treason
must be imntxhed. Its enormity and theex
teut and dep'th of the offence must be made
In a speech on April Gth, 1865, on the
reception of the news of the fail of Peters
burg and Richmond, in Washington, Mr.
Johnson remarked ;
"I am in favor of leniency, but, in my o
pinion, evil-doers shall be punished. Treas
on is the highest crime known in the cata
logue of crimes; and for him that is guilty
of it for him that is willing to lift his im
pious hand against the authority of the Na
tion I would say death is too easy a pun
ishment. My notion is that treason must be
made odious, that traitoM must be punished
and impoverished, their social power brok
en, though they must be made to feel the
penalty of their crimes. It is not the men
in the field who are the greatest traitors.
It is the men who have encouraged them to
emperil their lives, while they themselves
have remained at home expending their
means and exerting all their power to over
throw the Government. Hence I say this :
THE IIALTKR TO A"LI, INTELLIGENT, INFLU
ENTIAL traitors. But to the honest boy,
to the deluded man, who has been deceived
into the rebel ranks, I wculd extend lenien
cy ; I would say return to your allegiance,
renew your support to the Government,
and become a good citizen ; Bct TH 'Lead
ers I Would IIaxo."
On the 18th of April, 18G5, in the course
of some remarks to a delegation of citizens
of Illinois, Mr. Johnson said :
"In our peaceful history treason has been
almost unknown. The people must under
stand that it is the blackest of crimes and
will be surely puuished.
In his response, to a delegation of Penn
sylvania's, on April 27th, 18G5, President
John-on remarked as follows:
"To those who have deceived to the con
scious, influential traitor, who attempted to
destroy the life of the nation I would say.
on you be inflicted the severest penalties of
But it is useless to multiply evidence.
The above extracts plainly indicate that
President Johnson considers treason a crime
the worst in the whole catalogue of crimes
and that a just and severe punishment of
traitors will not meet with disapprobation
on his part. "Treason must be punished,"
was the Democratic doctrine of Jefferson
and Jackson, and Andrew Johnson stands
side by side with them. That the "Copper
heads" of the present day are opposed to
this old Democratic 'plank,' their nearly ev
ery act and word since the commencement
of the war pretty clearly attests ; and they
cannot escape the ignominy that attaches to
them, on account of their sympathies with
the rebellion, by attempting to crawl under
the cloak of JDemocracy and taking a seat
behind the 'new President' on the old plat
form of Jefferson and Jackson.

Rewards for Conspirators.
The preliminary examinations of persons
in reference to the great conspiracy, which
resulted in the assassination of Abraham
Lincoln have pretty satisfactorily establish-,

Thompson, Clement C. Clay, Beverly Tucker

the plot. In view of these facts, President
Johnston has offered large rewards for their
apprehension and delivery to the United

on arriving in the city they were driven di

at the mansion prior to the arrival of its fu

hearty greeting was extended them as they
entered the house. The parlors were filled
with ladies and gentleman, and a portion of
the afternoon was spent in friendly conversa

SEND GREETING !
The People of Pennsylvania to the Presi
dent of the United States.
A committee of prominent citizens from
the different sections of Pennsylvania, most
of whom participated in a large meeting
held at Harrisburg on Thursday, April 27th,
was appointed to present the preamble and
resolutions then adopted to Andrew John
son, President of the United States. Ac
cordingly, nearly all the gentlemen of the
committee, accompanied by, Hon. Thadeu3
Stevens, paid their respects to Mr. Johnson
at his rooms in the Treasury building. Gen.
Cameron introduced the members of the
committee, individually,-to the President,
after which, in the following language, he
presented the preamble and resolutions
which the coiuurittee was charged to convey
to the Chief Executive:
Addrea3 of General Cameron.
Mr. President: I have only one word
to say ; a large number of people, members
of the Union and Republican party, met at
Harrisburg last Thursday, and appointed
this committee to come and pa3T their re
spects to you. We have nothing to desire
but the prosperity of your Administration,
and have ample confidence in your ability
a confidence derived from y-our past history.
Your first great task is to close up this war,
and we take it for granted, you will act not
only wisely, but justly. I also take it for
granted that the men who brought on this
war will meet the full reward of their guilt,
while we believe the mere deluded instru
ments ought to be suffered to go along their
wonted way and do the best they can. We
cannot doubt that the men who made
the war who.have killed in battle thou
sands of our sonsand brothers, and who have
suffered other thousands to die from starva
tion in loathsome prisons will be permitted
to live in the country which they have c:s
graced and denounced: and we hope that
you will find some way to take care of them
and to save and reunite the country. There
are none here who have come from any de
sire for place for themselves or theii rela
tions; they are substantial men from all
parts of our great State, who have no inter
est so strong as to interpose with their love
of country. They hore and bjlieve vou
will bring the country out of its present
trouble; and, above all things, they feel as
sured that, by your hand, no arrangement
for peace will be made that does not put au
end to slavery forever.
The President's Reply.
Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen: I
can only reply in general terms ; and, per
haps, as good a reply as I could make would
be to refer to or repeat what I have already
said to other delegations, who have come
for the purpose of encouraging and inspiring
me with confidence on entering upon the
discharge of duties so responsible, so peril
ous. All that I could now ray would be
but a reiteration of sentiments already indi
cated. The words you have spoken are
most fully and cordially accepted and re
sponded to by nie. I, too, think the time
has arrived when the people of this nation
should understand that treason is a crime.
When we turn to the catalogue of crime,
we find that most of those contained in it
are understood ; but the crime of treason
has neither been generally understood nor
generally appreciated, as I think it should
be ; and there has been an effort, since this
rebellion commenced, to make the impres
sion that it was a mere political struggle, or
as I see it thrown out in some of the papers,
a struggle for an ascendancy of certain prin
ciples from the dawn of the Government to
the present time, and now settled by the fi
nal triumph of the Federal arms. If this
is to be a determined, settled idea and opin
ion, the Government is at an end. for no
question can arise but they will make it a
partj iseue ; and then, to whatever length
they carry it, the party defeatedVill be only
a party defeated, and no crime attaches
thereto. But I say treason is a crime, the
highest crime known to the law, aud the
people ought to understand it, and be taught
to know that unless it be so considered there
can be no Government. I do not say this
to indicate a revengeful or improper spirit.
It is simply the enuciation of deliberate con
sideration and temperate judgment.
There are men who ought to suffer the
penalties ot their treason ; but'there are'also
some who have been engaged in this rebel
lion who, while technically speaking, they
are guilty of treason, yet who morally are
not thousands who have been drawn into
it, involved by various influences, by. con
scription, by dread, by force of public opin
ion in the localities in which they lived
these are not so responsible as are those who
led, deceived, and forced them; To the un
conscious, deceived, conscripted in short,
to the great mass of the misled I would
say mercy, clemency, reconciliation, and the
restoration of their Governmint. To those
who have deceived to the conscious, influ
ential traitor, who attempted to destroy the
life of a nation I would say, on you be in
flicted the severest penalties of your crime.
I fully -understand howeasy it is to get up
an impression in regard to the exercise of
mercy; and if I know myself and my own
heart, there is in it as great a disposition to
mercy as can be manifested on the part of
any other individual; but mercy without
justice is A crime. In the exercise of
mercy, there should be deliberate consider
tion and a profound understanding of the
case and lam not prepared to say but
what it should often be transfcred to a highr
er court, a court where mercy and justice
can best be united.
In responding to the remarks of your
chairman and in reference to free govern
ment and to the discharge of my duties; I
can only say again, that my past public life
must be taken as the guide to what my fu
ture will be. My course has been unmis
takable and well defined. I know that it is
easy to cry out demagogue, but let
that be . as it may. If I have spent the
toil of youth and the vigor of my life for
the elevation of the great masses of the peo
ple, why it was a work of my choosing, and
I will bear the loss ; and if it is demagog
ism to please the people, if it is demagog
ism to strive for their welfare and ameliora
tion, then I am a demagogue. I was always
proud when my duties were so discharged
that the people were pleased.
A great monopoly (and the remarks of
your chairman bring me to it) existed
that of slavery, and upon it rested an aris
tocracy. It is the work of freemen to put
down monopolies. You have seen the at
tempt made by the monopoly of slavery to
put down the free Government ; but the
making of the attempt, thereby to control
and destroy the Government, you have seen
the Government put down the monopoly
and destroy the institution. Applause.
Institutions of any kind must be subordi
nate to the Government or the Government
cannot stand. I do not care whether it be
North or South. A Government based on
popular judg ments must be paramount to
all institutions that spring up under that
Government ; and if, when they attempt to
control the Government, the Government
don't put them down, they will put it down.
Hence, the maiu portion of my efforts have
been devoted to the opposition of them.
Hence, I have ever opposed aristocracy
opposed it in any shape.
But there is a kind of suffrage that has
always, that always will, command my re
flect and approbation the aristocracy of
talent, the aristocracy of virtue, the aristoc
racy of merit, or an aristocracy resting up
on worth, the aristocracy of labor, resting
upon honest industry, developing the in
dustrial resources of the ceuntry, this com
mands my respect and admiration, my sup
port in life.
In regard to my future course in connec
tion with this rebellion, nothing that I can
say would be worth listening to, if my pat
is not sufficient guarantee, I cau only add
that I have never knowingly deceived the
people, and never have betrayed a friend,
applause, and God willinjr, never will.
Applause. Accept my profound and sin
cere thanks for the encouragement you have
given me, and believe me when I say
that your encouragement and countenance,
your confidence, are a great aid and a great
spur to the performance of my duties.
Once more I thank you for this manifesta
tion of your regard and respect.
Desire to Return.
Parson Brownlow says, in a letter to his
paper, that there are quite a number of
Tennessee refugees, South, on tlu opposite
bank of the Tennessee river, in North Ala
bama, anxious to return home,' and they are
coming home in a few days. The Govern
or then continues :
"Among those further back in the interior

have written to the latter to come home.and
told him that he would not be molescd.
