to the commonest impulses of humanity were I
not filled with the warmest sentiment of gratitude
for the friendly expressions and persona1 regard
that your letter contains, signed as it is by Re

who have risked their lives for the preservation
ot the Union. Such distinguished consideration
overcomes every natural objection I may have for
polit ical honors, consequently I do accept of your
kind invitation to allow my name to be used, but
with the understanding that I am not to be the
standard-bearer of either political party (Repub
licans or Democrats) but if nominated it must be
by a People' Convention, as I belong to the peo-
Tli.p a pa mv friml h natron, and IB
justice to them, composed astbey are of all shades

THE UNCOK QUEEED BANNEE.
Spread" out that Banner, furl it never,
It s union field dare not to sever,
It is our father's flag of yore
For there's not a man who bore it
But would glad'ydie to soar it.
Oh ! oi.r boys in blue adore it,
Even those who late have tore it,
Now love it as befcre.
Spread out that banner, shout its glory.
That starry flag shall live in story
True, 'tis battle stained and gory
Triumphant let it fly,
Glorious banner of the free,
Flashing gem of liberty
Before it despots bend the knee
Wave it on high.
Spread out that banner, let it ware,
A light and beacon to the brave ;
Flashing freedom to the slave
Beyond the sea ;
Until the tyrant's chains are rended,
And equal rights are well defended.
And freedom's torch as God intended,
To all are free '.
Unfurl that banner to' the gale,
Its gleam oft made tho foeman quail,
And death to him. who dare assail
Our emblem of the tree.
You proudly waved 'mid battle's clash ;
You gleamed around the cannon's flash ;
Through ranks of death our heroes dash,
Led on by thee.
Unroll that banner, softlj slowly
With heads uncovered. It is holy!
Plant it o'er our martyr's head ;
Let no' rude foe approach it never;
Let it there, and forever
SaCred to our gallant dead.
In memory of the hands that grasped It,
In memory of the hearts that clasped it.
Plant it, o'er the martyr's grave ;
Our union Martyrs of the wars.
Let them now sleep beneath the stars;
Their blood flowed out to save.
Spread that banner ! True, 'tis tattered,
And its oaken staff is shattered,
By the foeraen we have have scattered,
But 'tis glorious !
Against our hearts we will enfold it,
Our hearts embrace those who unrolled it
In battle's van, to. raise and hold i t,
Still victorious !

The Supreme Court and the President.
Mr. Johnson, in his reply to the address
of the Philadelphia Convention, described
Congress as "a body hanging upon the verge
of the Government" words unmistakably
insulting to the American people whom Con
gress represents. If the Senators and Rep
resentatives ot New York, Pennsylvania,
New England, the Middle States, and the
West,- constitute a body hanging on the
verge of the Government, the President,
who is but one man, must hang outside ot'it.
This insult to the people has been fre
quently repeated by Mr. Johnson, pnd is
caused by the assertion of their right to de
termine the reconstruction of the Union by
legislation, in opposition to Mr. Johnson's
claim to settle all questions by Executive
action. Morally, this is a question as to
who truly represents the people, the Sena
tors aiidIt.preeutative.sof 27 States, or the
man, who h:is become President by an acci
dent. Congress, unquestionably, far more thor
oughly embodies the nation's principles,
and is in far more intimate relations with
the people, from the fact that it represents
all the shades of opiruon in every district of
every loyal State. he business of the
President is to execute the laws, and not to
make them. In this matter of reconstruc
tion, lie is, not only morally, but legally,
bound to carry out the decision of Congress.
In tlie oft quoted case of Luther agt. Bor
der (7 How.. U. S. Rep. p. 1,) which arose
out of tha "Dorr War" iu Rhode Island, it
was held by the Court (page 42) that, under
the fourth section of the Constitution, the
United States should guarantee to every
State a republican form of government, &c,
'"it rests with Congress to decide what gov
ernment is the established one in the State.
For as the United States garranteo to each
State a republican form of government, Con
gress must necessarily decide what govern
ment is established before it can determine
whether it is republican or not. And when
the Senators and Representatives are ad
mitted into the councils of the Union, the
authority of the Government under which
they are appointed, as well as the republi
can character, is recorgnized by the proper
constitutional authority, and its decision, is
binding on every department of the Govern
ment, and could not be questioned in a judi
This decision embodies the long establish
ed popular and judicial opinion of the juris
diction of Congress, and it suggests that
Mr. Johnson, who talks so much about the
Constitution, would do well to read it. X.
North Carolina has rejected her revised
Constitution by a miiority of nearly 2,000.
The Newbern Daily Times of the 23d inst
says: "There is no doubt but that the new
constitutionhasbeenre jeeted, and that fact we
consider bad enough without misrepresent
ing the cause of defeat. We have hereto
fore based its rejection upon the ground Of
opposition to President Johnson's theory of
reconstruction, and we now repeat that that
is the true cause. In every county, so iar a3
our knowledge extends, where the leading
men ot influence are truely and honestly sup
porters of Mr. Johnson's policy, ratification
was carried by handsome majorities, while
in those counties where this class of our fellow-citizens
hold the Ruffin doctrine, that
Mr. Johnson is a usurper and cannot call
conventions, &c.;'to remodel and resuscitate
State governments, ratification was lost by
large majorities. 'Let the truth" be ' told,
though the heavens falL" "
An old revolutionary soldier named Fred
erick Craider died recently near Meadville,
Mississippi, in the one hundred and eigntn.
year of his age. He had served in the war
of 1S12, as well as during the revolution.
Soldiers' Extra Bounties "Why they are
Congress, just before it adjourned, says
the Detroit Post, passel a bill giving extra
bouuties to soldiers. That law was intend
ed to pay these extra bounties immediately.
It made every necessary provision for so
Immediately after its passage, the Secre
tary of War appointed a board, with Gener
al Canby as its President, to decide upon
the proper construction of the law, and to
frame rules to govern the different depart
ments in paying the expected claims. This
board, it is stated iu the dispatches from
Washington, has finished his report. The
report declares that the law is explicit, that
the bounties ought to be paid, and also pre
senting the required rules for carrying it in
to immediate effect. This report, it is sta
ted by the New York Tribune's correspon
dent, has been suppressed by the President's
direction. An order was issued, at the ame
time, to the Second Auditor of tho Treasu
ry, not to pay the bounties until further or
dors. The New York IlcrahFs correspen-
dent a Johnson man says he is "author.
zed to state that the bouuties will not be paid
for several months." The soldiera interest
ed will naturally ask tchy the intention of
Congress is thus defeated, and their just
claims postponed. The correspondent of the
Chicago Tribune answers these questions as
"The contradiction teleeraphed over the
country last night,to the efect that the Sec
retary of the Treasury had not issued an
order forbidding the payment of bounties
under the late act ot Loiigrccs, is in itself
unfounded. Such an order was iu the pus-
sessicn cf the Second Aud tor last week.
The further statement that the Treasury
Department is awaiting the conclusion of the
report of the commission appointed by the
Secretary of War, to ascertain if the law
would justify the payment of the bounties,
and to frame rules governing the disburse
ments, is also a misstatement. The facts
are as stated in these dispatches two nights
since. The report of the commission
ready to be made on Monday, and instead,
it was withheld bit the President. The re
port vis in favor of the payment of the
bounties. The whole thing v:as intended as
a secret attempt to prevent the paiwnt of
any bounties till after the elections, ana in
the meantime to create the impression that
Conaress dulnot really intend any payment.
but simply passed some unmeaning words
by which to deceive soldiers and obtain their
votes. The chances are that the unexpect
ed exposure of this transaction will secure
the publication of the report. It is said,
however, that there is a settled determina
tion in Administration circles to prevent the
Pep'iblican party from receiving any of
the good icill which, icouia spring jrom vie
general payment of bounties before the elec

The Soldiers can thus see how they were
to be duped, if possible, into supporting the
President, by withholding their bounties.
These bounties are only due to privates and
non-commissioned officers. Gen. Custar and
tho other officers who support the Philadel
phia scheme, and are attempting to lead the
soldiers into the Copperhead camp, are not
interested in the bounty lavr. liny do not
lose anything by the delay in paying the
bounties ; consequently they are well aSord
to support t hi President, who hold3 in his
hands the power of promotion ; but the
keeping back of the poor private's well
earned bounty for three or four months, for
political effect, is a cruel injustice, aud, in
many cases, a great hardship. Congress
voted him the money; he is fairly entitled
to it immed:ately ; and it is a meanness of
the most despicable sort to withhold it, for
the sake of depriving the Republican party
of the political credit of hating hown itself
the friend of the soldier. telegraph.
The Effect of the President's Speeches.
The Boston Traveller in the following re
marks, expresses precisely what is coming
to be the feeling of all Republicans, aud
what the President's supporters must secret
ly confess to themselves, as to the effect of
his speeches :
"The political tour of the President is
doing a good service to his opponents. He
makes such bombastic and silly siteeches
that people everywhere are getting disgust
ed with him. Mr. Seward has been credit
ed with shrewdness, and the wonder is that
he does not keep the President in check.
Perhaps, however, he is playing a double
game, expecting to see the Presideut destroy
himself, and hoping that by contrast the
people will be attracted to him. But the
thine is so much overdone that not omy
Johnson but his whole party will speedily be
ruined. We hope the programme will be
carried out as commencea, ina. ice presi
dent will speak half a dozen times each day,
all the way to and back, .and then we shall
have no fears as to the result of the elec
tions in October and November."

We are frequently asked, "what do you
Republicans propose to do with the South ?
What is your plan and purpose?
We individually answer iu the language of
Anueew Joaxsox in bis speech at Nash
ville, in 1SG4, on accepting the nomination
of Vice President. Then he uttered these
brave words: "
"I hold with Jefferson that governmeut
was made for the convenience of man, aud
not man for government. The laws and
constitutions were designed as instruments
to promote his welfare. And hence, from
this principle, I conclude tha gu .rnineuts
cau and ought to be chauged and amended
to conform to the wants, to the requirements
and progress of the people, aud the enlight
ened spirit of the age. iSiavery ii
dead, and you must pardoa me if 1 do not
mourn over its dead body ; you can bury it
out of sight. In restoring the State, leave
out that disturbing and dangerous element,
and use only those parts ot the machinery
which will move in hiiiiuoay.
But iu calling a convention to restore the
State, who shall restore and re-establish it?
Shall the mau who gave his influence and
his means to destroy iLe- Government? Is
he to participate in the great work of reor
ganization? fchall he who brought this
misery upon the State be permitted to con
trol its destinies ? If this b. so, iheu all
this precious blood of our brave soldiers and
otlieers so freely poured out will have been
wontonly spilled. All the glorious victories
won by our noble armies wiil go for nought,
and all the battlefields which have been
sown with dead heroes during the rebellion
wiil have been made memorable in vain.
Why all this carnage aud devastation? It
was that treason mijjut be put down and
traitors punished. Therefore I say that
traitors should take a back seat in the work
of restoration. If there b. but five thou
sand men in Tennessee loyal to the Consti
tution, loyal to freedom, loy.il i justice,
these true a;id faithful mei should control
the work of reorganization and reformation
absolutely. I say that the traitor has ceas
ed to bo a citizcus, and in joining the rebel
lion has become a public enemy, lie lor
feited his right to vote vith loyal men when
he renounced his citizenship and sought to
destroy our Government. We say to the
most honest and industrious foreigner who
comes from England or Germany to dwell
among us, and to add to the wealth of the
country, "Before you n be a citizen you
must stay here for five yeai3." If we are
so cautious about foreigners who voluntarily
renounce their homes to live with us, what
should we say to the traitor, who.altough born
and reared among us, lias raised a parrici
dal hand against the Government wnich al
ways protected him ? My judgment is that
he should be subjected to a severe ordeal
before he is restored to citizenship. A fel
low who takes the oath merely to save hia
property, and denies the validity of the
oath, is a prejured man, and not to lie trust
ed. Before these rcpentiug rebels can be
trusted, let them bring forth the fruits of re
pentance. He who helped to make all these
widows and orphans, who draped the streets
of Nashville in mourniug, should suffer for
his great crime. The work is in our own
hands. We can destroy this rebellion.
With Grant thundering on Jotomac
before Richmond, andSheruii and Thomas
on their march toward Atlanta, the day wul
ere long be ours. Wirt any madly persist
in rebellion? Sucrose that an equal num
ber be slain in evify battle, it is plain that
the result must (e the utter extermination
of the rebels. -ih ! those rebel leaders have
a strong persona! reason lor holding out to
save their necks from the halter ; and these
leaders must feel the power of the Gevern
ment ! Treason must be made odious, and
traitors must be punished and impoverish
ed. Their great plantations must be seized,
and divided into small farms, and sold to
honest, industrious men. The day for pro
tecting the lands and negroes of these au
thors of the rebellion is past. It is high
time it was. I have been most deeply pain
ed at some things which have come under
my observation. We get men in command
who, under the influence of flattery, fawn
ing, and caressing, grant protection to the
rich traitor, while the poor Union man
stands out in the cold, often unable to get a
receipt or a voucher for his losses. The
traitor can get lucrative contracts, while the
loyal man is pushed aside, unable to obtain
a recognition. "
"Defend Nothing.' It is stated that
the Chairman of the Copperhead State Com
mittee, Wm. A. Wallace, is sending circu
lars of instructions to the Copperhead speak
ers in the different counties, which he closes
as follows :
"Let us charge them (the Union Repub
licans) with their crimes, press home upon
them the negro, and defend nothing.
This may be good advice ; but it also in
dicates the utter hopelessness and rotten
ness of their cause. Bad indeed must be
