Again, sir, if it were true . that the whites
were disloyal during - tlielehelllon, they aro
not rebellious now. Rebellion cannot exist
:-,orcontinue without real or supposed :cause.
Slavery, the cause and thgptetaxt for the late
rebellion, is gone forever. It can never be
revived:- Nothing can incite another rebel
lion at the South, for they have no power to
organize one against the, government, and
will not have for many years to come.
And wliy, sir ; why should they not desire
peace ? For that rebellion; Ante Which in an
evil hour the Radicals of She South plunged
them, they have been punished already by
the sacrifice of all their slave property,F.val
eel at three or four thousand million dollars;
the sacrifice of more than three-fo u rths of
all other personal_ property, probably two
thousand millions more ; by the sacrifiee of 1
their public and private teredits. at least a 1
Onus - and millions more ;by the depreciation
cif all their real estate at least seventy-five
per cent.—amounting probably to more than
two thousand editions more--making in all
a sacrifice of property; credits and values in
the Southern States alone of at least nine
thousand million dollars.
But there is another bloody and terrible
. page in this.account—a page in account with
death. It is estimated there have perished
in battle by disease, exposure,or other causes
'incident to the war, at least three hundred
thousand able-bodied white men of the South.
I take no Account of the unutterable anguish
of Millions of crushed and bleeding hearts.
No language can express, no figures measure
that! ' For that rebellion the white man of
the South has been most terribly punished
Nine thousand millions of values are gone—
lost foiever! Three hundred thousand able
bodied white men of-the flower and strength
of the South now lie in their bloody or pre
mature graves! Great God ! Is not thispun-
ishment enough? Must we go further? Must
we now punish the white men of the South
by placing them under the domination of
half-civilized Africans ? And in order to do
that shall we punish ourselves by giving over
to stolid and brutish ignorance the political
control of one-fourth of the States, and, it
• may be, tmder the control of the army the
balance of power in the United States ? Shall
we ATricanize.the South'and Mexicanize the
I know these measures of Congress have
done much to wound, nothing to heal. Yet,
notwithstanding all that Congress has done
to embitter their hatred toward the Radical
policy, there is neither thought, nor wish,
nor hope to restore slavery, nor to separate
from the Union, nor of rebellion, against the •
authority of the Government ; 'all evidence
proves the contrary.
In the whole rebel army which surrender
ed I challenge any Senator to point me to a
single instance in which a rebel officer has
violated - his parole ;orto a single man, of
-arty position or prominence at the South,
who after taking the oath of allegiance has
violated his plightedfaith.
No man can more, deeply feel than I do the
great and monstrous folly and crime or that
rebellion, which brought so t much of agony
and of blood upon all parts of our beloved.
land, and which robbed us of our dearest
kindred and threw a shade of sorrow ov,er
oar hearts which will never pass away until
they cease to beat But, now that blocid has
ceased to flow ; now that three years of peace
hare elapsed ; now that the whole South has
surrendered and every interes.rthey have oz
can hope for is to be found in the Union and
under the Constitution ; now that they have
hi good faith pledged anew their allegiance
and desire to join with us in rebuilding the
waste places overrun by this desolate war;
now that - they have, in fact, ceased to be reb
els, why shall we continue to denounce them
as rebels, and do all in our power to compel
them-to be rebels, and to remain rebels and
enemies forever? Is that the way to restore
prosperity? Is that the course of wise
. statesmanship? Will that bring permanent
Sir, let me put the extremest case. Sup
pose that these States of the South before the
war had been forel,p States, and that we had
conquered them by arms ! : would not wise
statesmen adopt the policy- of conciliation?
Would not they treat them as friends and
make them, fellow citizens at the earliest pos;
bible moment? How much more earnestly
should we adopt that policy because from
the beginning we have always declared that
- our purpose was not to subjugate but to
maintain the -Union with the equality and
rights of the States unimpaired.
We had a war with Mexico, resulting in the
acquisition of people and territory. By .
treaty the people were made citizens at once,
with all the rights of citizens. . We have had
wars with 'Englishmen ; but when the bloody
• strife was- over, when peace had come,
what course• did our great ancestors pursue?
We all know the war of the Revolution was
a civil War. During the strife, confiscation
and disfranchisement , were the order of the
day.• But when peace came and theysought
to lay the foundation of a Republic broad and
deep, what did they do? Do you find in the
Constitution they formed, or the laws they
passed under it, any -test-oaths; any bills of
attainder-, any military reconstruction bills?
No, sir. No : they were too great and, too
wise. They had too much faith in man, and
liberty, and truth, and God, for that. On the
" contrary, they declared that no bills ofnttain
der, no e.r post facto laws should be passed ;
no man not hi the military or naval service
should be subject to military trial tinder the
arbitrary power of the bayonet; and that
even for treason itself there should be no cor
ruption of blood or forfeiture beyond the life
of the guilty party ; and furthermore, that no
man should be convicted, except upon pre
sentment by a grand jury, and after a fair
trial, confronting his accusers, by the verdict
of a jury of his peers.
In the Declaration of Independence, also,
even in the midst of war, reason remained
supreme over passion. They Were equal to
the grand occasion. In one of its sublimed
sentences they declared they should hold the
people of England their fellow countrymen,
with whom they were then engaged in civil
war, as "enemies in war, in pence friends." If
we cannot equal them, may we not endeavor
to follow theu example?
What do the great examples of history
teach us in dealing with rebellions, if not that,
" after force liaa_heen subdued by three, mag
' nanimity is more powerful than revenge;
that love conquers what hate never can—
the hearts and elections of a people?
When Latium, one of the Roman prov
inces, revolted, and the revolt was put down
by arms, the question arose in the Roman
Senate, what shall be done with Latium and
the people of !Admit? There were some
then who cried, "disfranchise them ;" others
said, "confiscate their property." There were
none who said, "subject them to vassalage to
But old Camillus, in that speech, which re=
waled his greatness, and made his name ha
mortal, said: "Senators, make them your fel
low citizens, and thus add to' the power and
glory of Rome." In this high place, in this
Senate of the great Republic of the world,
outgrowth of the civilization of all the ages,
cannot we Senators, rise to the height of that
great argument ?
To descend to.liumbler examples, may we
not even take lessons from some of our In
dian tribes ? is well known that the civil •
.171.1 tribes of the Indian territory took sides
in our tel rade conflict. Civil war in its direst
a n d most savage form raged through all their
country. Their dwellings were sacked and
burned; theinhands were red with each oth
er's blood. Yet they made peace They have
reorganized their governments. They now
live aide by side - in perfect tranquili
ty. Prosperity is once more smiling on their
beautiful land. 'Cannot Christian statesmen
have equal faith in magnanimity—equal cour
age to forgive and to - believe that love is a
power by which to reach the hearts of our late
But, sir, suppose the statement be true that
the negroes are loyal and the whites disloyal
in heart, have we even then the right to de
grade the whites in vassalageto the negroes?
1 answer no. For 'their criminal acts we
would have the legal right to try and convict
and sentence to imprisonment and to death
even.. But now, without trial, by what oper
ates as a subitatitial bill ot• attainder, and a
post facto at that, to subject them to negro
governments is a crime against the Constitu
tion, against cair own race, and against civ
ilization itself. It is to impose upon them
againstetheir wilt a degradation which every
State of the • North would reject, and one
tenfold greater than has ever been attempted
in any lvmthem State. It would make them
unfit to be our fellow citizens, and place the
States of the South upon a footing inferior to
.that of the other States in the Union.
Sir, we claim to have fought fox libertyand
ag,ainst slavery. The issue of ISBO was the
extension" of slavery into the Territories. By
the election of 31r. Lincoln the people of the
United States decided against that. The Rad
icals of the South, another name for the seces
sionists, rebelled against tat decision and en
deavored to reverse it by.'arms. • That rebel
lion raised another and greater issue—the ex
istence of the government Itself. It also
placed at stake slavery is all the States. By
the re-election of Mr. Lincoln in 1864 the peo
ple decided in favor of a vigorous "prosecu
tion of the war until every rebel should lay
down arms, and also in .favor of an amend
ment to the Constitution to abolish slave!) , in
all the States and Territories forever.
At present, what do we behold?: ,Now
