Hon. Thaddeus Stevens made one of his bold
est speeches in Gettysburg on the 3d inst., in
which he discussed the status of the Rebel States
with a degree of originality and pungency peculiar
to himself. There is nothing new in his position :
but his arguments are ever fresh and logical, and
his keen satire on timeservers is worthy of his
palmiest days :
A. great war between the " Confederate States
of America" and the United States, has been won
by the Union, at the cost of foui billions of money,
the loss of nearly half a million of lives, and the
ruin of many loyal citizens. The enemy renoun
ced allegiance to the Constitution, and declared
themselves an alien enemy. We so treated them
on many a well fought Eel& Nomanly foe would
ever again claim shelter under the rejected Con
stitution, until admitted under it by a new com
pact containing conditions corresponding to the
alt ere d circumstances of the two belligerents.
No wise conqueror would admit such claim, if
meanly made, except upon terms such as victors
impose, of full indemnity for the past (as far as
possible) and full security for the future.. In the
important question of dealing with the vanquished
enernyTwe must-remember that they, are no com
mon foe wagng"War at the command of their
lawful rulers, but the whole body of the army
and people (with a few loyal exceptions) are
traitors, rebels and perjurers—are, in abort, wan
ton and cruel murderers of our best citizens.
What, therefore, might seem harsh towards a
common enemy, is mercy when dealt to them.
Two modes of dealing with them are now before
the people and to be decided by them 4 this
One proposition is to treat the Rebels as never
having abjured the Constitution or left the Union
in fact; but as merely trying to resume their
supposed right!, illegally to be sure, but still
within the 'Union, as " erring brethren," and,
therefore, entitled at their option, to cease this
"family strife" and resume their places with all
their rights ; that in doing this they are to con
sult only the Executive of the nation, without any
regard to the sovereign power—the Legislature.
The terms are, a few oaths, a humbug State Con
stitution, made without autbority of law, by less
than a third of the people, and never submitted
to the people fur ratification. „They are then to
be taken within our fraternal embrace, receive
a free pardon, ariPhave all their forfeited estates
- restored to them, and come into full communion
Congress, and in all the offices. They are to
pay none of the expenses or damages of the war,
nor contribute to the support of our disabled sot
diem and bereaved citizens.
This plan has the-full approbation of all the
Rebels and rebel sympathizers of the whole Cop
perhead party, of such Republicans as are natur
ally parasites, and or such public journals as
- The Union party of Pennsylvania have adopted=
a different plan. The State Convention resolved
that the estates of the leading Rebels should be
confiscated to pay the national debt; inerealte the
pensions of our soldiers; pay the damages done
to loyal men, and relieve the burden of taxation,
now heavy, and likely to be increased. This prin
ciple k approved by Maine, Massachusetts and
all the Union Conventions which have yet spoken.
The taxpaying loyal people are' unanimously in
favor of it. All who spinputhize with our wound
ed soldiers and their bereaved, friends; all who
ish to see the damages done by rebel raiders
paid approve of it. But it has been opposed by
every Copperhead Convention yet held (or to
be held, I suppose.)' Every Copperhead paper
in the nation ; every opponent of the war, and
slanderers of the soldiers, condemn it. While
every Copperhead paper, convention and petal
ciarr.Aouts the praises of the first named scheme
with a unanimity unparalled in political contests.
Between these schemes you are to decide.
Our leading journals seem bewildSired. I took
up one lately that says reorganization is easy. The
fundamental principle it lays down is " that the
Rebellion must be considered as havingdestroyed
no State, nor any State Government; they were
only in abeyance," and he says the President acts
upon that principle. Let na see where that would
lead us to.
I have said, elsewhere, that our national liabil
ities. when all shall be ascertained, will reach
four billions_of dollars. Certain temporizing Re
publicans say that the amount is• exaggerated.
Let us see.
By the last report of the Secretary of the Treas
ury, the ascertained amount, excluding the cash
on ,hand, was over $2,850,000,000. The amount
due the Army and Navy would no doubt swell it
to at least three billions of dollars. I think that
the unsettled claims against the Government for
damageS. goods furnished.- and services rendered,
will reach at least five, hundred millions of dollars.
The pension list will soon require $30,000.000 an
nually, whose capital is $500,000,000. Here we
have already four billions. But there are various
other liibilities—annuities to Indian tribes; bonds
to the Pacific Rail Road not less than $100,000,-
WO. ct ccirra.-
This, to he sure, will not all be on interest for
two or three years to come. Our legal tenders
cannot be funded before that time. But, in the
mean time, that which is on interest bears much
more than six per cent. Seven-Thirty is the low
esrpayable in money. The gold bearing is be
tween eight and nine per cent., (reduced to legal
tenders.) To pay the interest and ordinary ex
penses of the Government, and the increased cost
of the Army and Navy will require :44500,000.000
annually. Our present revenue will be, in com
mon years, abour:$300,000,000, leaving $200,-,
000,000 to be raised by taxation. This whole
debt was forced on us by the rich Rebels of the
South They organized a regular governmeet
defied the United States to battle; compelled
them to raise and maintain a million of men; and
a navy of seven hundred vessels. Those who cre
ated this debt have been conquered. The law of
nations says; the taw of justice, and of the God
of Armies says, that they shall pay the expenses
and damages of this wicked war. The Rebels,
the Copperheads, and a few bewildered stagger
ing Republicans say, " let them back with all
their privileges, without fine or forfeiture. To
consolidate the Union we must leave the bomici
daltraitors in its bosom, and treat them kindly,
lovingly, and mercifully. Touch not a dollar of
their property; but allow loyal men to groan un
der the burdens they have heaped upon them."'
This is not the 'Pennsylvania platform. It says
" confiscate the property of the rich Rebels, and
apply it to pay the debt, and to_indemuit the loc.
al men who have beet' ruined by them; and add
something to our wounded §oldiere' comfort."
And yet I perceive certain Republicans, who sit
on velvet cushions, fill high places, and grow fat
nn Federal patronage, join the whole throng of
Copperheads and traitors, and beg that mercy and
loving kiodness shall be bestowed on the vanquish.
ed wretches; and especially on those who sue for
pardon; because they are worth more than $20,-
1100 each ; tied that none of their vast eittlites shall
be taken from them, whiltiour loyal poor, made
luniseless by their incendiary torch, laiust wander
in poverty and labor by the day, to feed and del
ter their sfiffering families! -
The shabby Republicans to whom I have refer.
red, take that course because they pretend it is
thelPresident's plan. All 'admit and applaud the
patriotism and honesty of the President. It is
true that the applause of the Copperheads, and
their unanimous approval of what they call his
views, have made the h yel pause. But they need
not be alarmed, nor need the rebels exult at what
they deem the President's plan of reorganization.
I do not find that he has definitely chosen either
mode. He tells us he is trying experiments, us
it is his duty to do, to see which works beat. He
cannot for a moment pretend, ner do I understand
him to pretend that the Executive has anything
to do with reconstructing the•nation. His duty,
as Commander-lit-Chief, is to do what he is doing,
hold the conquered belligerent under military rule
until the meeting of Congress. Not one of the
Confederate States is yet released from military
supervision. The President cannot make laws to,
govern them, nor can their own Legislatures, tor
they are subject to the conqueror. Congress, and
Congress alumni, can reinstate or readmit them.
But the President has an important duty to per
form. He should be prepared to recommend
some scheme to Congress. To know what is wis
est to advise, he is try MOM. expenment of al.
lowing the captives to fabricate forms of State
Governments, and pass' municipal laws. It he
finds that they are weaned from their slavish ideas
and lewi!learned to law: to God's decree of equal
rights, he will recommend Congress to admit them
to the communion of Freedom. If, as aeons like
ly, Irma the specimens we have had, their old pre-,
judiees prevail, mid they will not bow to the do:
(Teo of Heaven, and honestly embrace the Dada.

ration of Independence, he will no doubt advise
Congress to keep them still in a state of pupilage..
The theory on which be is allowing the South to
patch up State governments; shows that be eat.:
not expect thedi to be permanent. He directs'
his Military,Hovemors to allow the people to take
the old Constitutions as the substratum of a new
organization, and so amend them as to meet the
expectations of the North, by abolishing slavery.
The Governors direct who shall vote and when
the Conventions shall be held. Now those Con.
stitntions whick-are to be reformed, point out the
modes of amendment.
The Constitution of TenneSsee provides that
"whenever two-thirds of the General Assembly •
shall think it necessary to change or amend this
Constitution they shall recommend to the electors
to vote for or against a convention," et cetera.
The Constitution of South Carolina now being
furnished by Provisional Governor Perry, says;
"No Convention of the people shall be called tin.:
less by the - concurrence of two-thirds of both
branches of the whole representation." The Con
stitution of Mississippi requires a two-thirds vote
to amend; so of Louisiana, Virginia, and all the
other States. None of the present cobbled Gov
ernments base gone through this process. I think
about a dozen townships and fifteen hundred vo
ters acted thr the eleven hundred thousand people
of Virginia. What new law has authorized this
mode of amending or creating new States? The
President can pass no law, and Congress has not
met since the conquest. It is evidently an "ex
periment;" a job for these captives to learn on
while held in military subjection. Ido not over
look what the President has occasionally said to
them. Itis a very allowable Christian gratifica
tion for him and his thief minister whom these
then have persecuted, and placed rewards on their
beads, and attempted to assassinate, to see them
rouged by fifties at his foot-stool, begging his par
don, and to lecture them in a patronizing way;
and listen to their submissive answers, and see
them clap their delicate hands in constrained ap
plause; to tell them not to be alarmed at the rad
icals, that they are under his protection, and un
der the shield of the Constitution whichthey had
never abjured; that he loves them like ri father;
and wilt love them all the more for this little "fa
mily feud:'
It is easy to see that this is all irony, cutting
irony, Which they well deserve: If Wl:tenet irony
to the living traitors it is mockery to the loyal
dead. With what feelings would our returned
soldiers listen to those in authority, soothing, en
couraging, patronizing those who hid just been
seeking their lives? How could you standing
among the thick graves of the immortal battle
field of Gettysburg, listen to such language if it
were to be literally understood? How more cru
el than steel would it enter the hearts of fathers,
brothers and kindred of those who had fallen by
Rebel hands, to see the Chiefs of the Union fra
ternizing with and embracing the-murderers of
their kindred, while their garments are yet drip
ping with their fresh blood? Those who know
the remarkable intellectual character of those,
eminent wen perceive, if they do not enjoy, the
rich irony of their speeches, so delicate, and yet
so subtle that the trembling supplicants accept it
literally, and have gone home to boast of their
success, and plot new treason. You will now see
how important it is to carry this election,: The
Union platform says: "The Rebel's property
shall pay the damages done to loyal citizens;
double the pensions of our soldiers, and'pay a
part of the National Debt." The Copperhead ,
platform says: "Touch not a dollar of the one-.
my's property but let them back, unpunished, in
to the Union that they may aid their loving Cop
perhead friends ip controlling the Nation."
This is the distinct issue. If we succeed it will
so strengthen the hands of the,Unionl e
Congress as to enable them to overcome all oppo
sition, and reconstruct the Government upon the
principles of Justice, which is universal liberty.
How are we to prevent the pro-slavery party from
getting a majority in Congress until all whole
some legislation shall have been completed? Be
gin. at the opening of the text session of Con
gress, by declaring all the Confederate States in a
territorial condition: and refuse to admit a mem
ber from any one of them. Af it is conceded that
any of them are States capable of representation,
then the Kite question will be the personal, quali
fications of individual members; and one after
another will find their wayinto both branches of
Congress. - That would eutitle the States to vote
for President and Vice President; and the suc
cessor of Andrew Johnson would be a Secession
Copperhead. Then comes the assumption of the
Rebel debt, or the repudiation of ours—a condi
tion worse than peaceable separation—for I can
conceive of no condition worse than National re
11 eat is conclusive evidence that the President
considers the present adjustment of States as
temporary and experimental only, is, that the Su
preme Court has decided that the declaration of
the condition-of States belongs exclusively to
Congress. TO present arrangement was made
under lie decrees of the President and his Mili
tary Gnikerntirs. If this could be deemed perma
nent, it would form a precedent, on which future
Presidents might build a throne, and usurp a
crown. The President is too much of a plebeian
to indulge in such absolute ideas. The people of
the border counties, Franklin, ,i.dam"s, York, Cum
berland and others, have been robbed of their
personal property; and one whole town laid in
ashes by the Rebel armies. Let the Union plan
be sustained, and all their losses will he paid, and
your taxes greatly lessened. Let it be defeated
and the Rebels will. be allowed' to retain their
property, and you will look in vain for the pay
ment of yours. How can any one standing amidst
these plundered citizens, and almost in sight of
the ruins of Chanibersburg, sustain riparty, which
says to the rich Rebels, "Keeplonr estates, and
let those whose property you destroyed, work on
in hopeless poverty to the grave!"
I was lately in Philadelphia; and heard of a
case, (asample of many others,) which stirred
my blood, cold as it is. A rich Rebel owned city ,
stock amounting (with interest,) to more than
one hundred thousand dollars. It had been wiz-,
ed under our confiscation
_laws. it was ready to.
he paid into the United States Treasury, when a
pardon came, which restored itto its Rebel own
er. _lf such things meet your approbation, sup
port the Copperhead ticket.
I observe, it is said that so anxious are these
- erring brethern" to escape the action of Con
gress, that they are being pardoned at the rate of
hundreds a day ; and as no human endurance
could stand such rapid labor, a machine has been
invented to do it mechanically, and three hundred
are pardoned daily by machinery. Ido not see
why a machine may not do this work as well as
human intellect. Thus they hope to escape un-
I punished. But I think they will be mistaken. so
tar as their property is concerned. Idu not be
' liece that the President's pardon can restore
property confiscated by Congress, and vetted in
the United States. Congress did not seize it as
the property of traitors, but took it as enemies'
property. Such is the express wording of the
law of July, lea. The first four sections apply
to traitors. A pardon would guard against con
viction for treason ; but it has nothing to do with
belligerent rights: Property once- vested in the
United States-cannot be divested by an act of the
. -
We are commanded to administer judgment in
mercy. lam for mercy, but not until justice is
satisfied. Many are ostentatious of their merci
ful feelings. Some, I suspect, mistake timidity
and softening of the brain for tenderness of heart.
With us are all the best warriors of the na
tion—Sherman, Hooker, Hunter, Howard, Sheri

land and their followers.
It would be but justice that those On the fron
tier, who stood as a bulwark between the enemy
and the interior, should be indemnified by the
State. Such was the opinion of Alexander Ham
ilton. The Union candidates, alone, can obtain
compensation for the border people.. But, above
all, damages done by the enemy sould be paid .
by their property: They are usually provided for
by treaties of peace, Ity Compelling the vanquish
ed belligerent to pay those datuagesias theta-,
penses of the war. As the " Confederate States"
had no bead, with .whom we could - consent to
treat, it rests with Congress to impose the terms
of peace. One of thew terms the Unkmparty of
Pennsylvania contends shall be, '' that the estates
of the Rebels shall pay for the , property which
they destroyed in Pemisylvaniaandether Shate! l -7-•
It is the certain and true mode,

one, by which indemnity can be had. This Is
