represeutatism during the whole.war.--
Their members could _ have entered this
Capitol at any tine and voted as the in
terest of the confederacy required. If
the war had lasted fifty years instead of
four the right would have run through all
that Aline. Nor 4ould it have ceased if
currencies bad b4en overpowered and tbe
,unmolested. After one
hundred years of (separation, they might
still, vote for President and send 'mem
bers to Congress.l Unless you admit t l be
doctrine, of forfeiture, you cannot avnid
this couclusion. Aside fiJims this doctrfne
nothing but tan amendment of the Coned
tution could deprive them pf this right.
But the Constitution could noibsrunend
cd, because these eleven States are more
than one fourth Of the whole, andas
et of some of them would be u ary
for any Amendment; and to deprive t em
of Sen,ators ; the assent of every one would
be necessary. - I
The advocates of this theory; to avoid
this result,`'cencede that the right of rep
resentation Would be forfeited by success.
But how? The Constitution is nut changed
by the result of a battle. , There it isjust
as it was before... If they lost nothing by
defeat would they by ,success ? They
lost nothing by Secession and Un
successful war,you say,because these were
unconstitutiocuil. , Can they lose anything
then, by victory ? would not that be un
constitutional also? "But we would ac-1
,quiesce." Well; suppose we should';
would not acquiescence be unconstitutional
and void ?I Where in the Constitution are
we authorized tol acquiesce in a division of
the Republic? If their ordinance of se
cession was void would not our consent t o l
it be equally- void ? If the ordinance .was
void can it be rendered i more so by defeat
or less so by victory 7 Some of the advo
cates of this theery,to avoid this reasoning
concede that the right of representation
is forfeited or suspended dupng "contu
macy." This cruel word to CharacteriZe
the great rebellion is not origi6al with me.
It isthe word maliciously cbesen by our
cons rvative friends who are: determined
to t 's, fie treasonlodious. I wish the prin.
ter to, inclose it with inverted commar,thitt
sechlseverity dlan g ua g e may not be a's
oriblto me. But who is to dceidewhen
the s spension begins and when it ena ?
Theptate ? If So, that is no suspension
at - all. A right' that can be taken up and
laid 'down at pleasure cannot Ise said to he
suspended. Is Congress thojudge ? Then
I submit that lby secession from the
United States, by the formation of a new
confederacy, bylfour years of terrible war
and five of scornful refusal, these States
would become a little contumacious, Sod
,Congress wouldi be justified in suspending
their rights mitt' the legislation nee 6 ary
to make representation fair and equal
could be agreed upon and passed. And
that is al: that anybody here proposes to
do. - i
Thie appeal to the Coostitntion for
autharity to band the 'Government over
to the unrepentant plotters of its destnic-
I non, is but a continuation of the policy
pursued by the Opposition for tho last
five years. Daring that period they have
raised a cry about the Constitution many
titnes but always in opposation to good
measures or in advocacy ot betimes. When
it was'first proposed to coerce the rebellion
and save - the Union, and at every follow
ing sep toward apparent success .they
oiied,l"uncoosiitutiooal." It was flacon
siltation:Ll to raise an - army or march into
the shored Soil of the South. It - was lin
coostitutional to issue bills of credit to
meet the expenses. It was unconstito-
tiona to close a rebel port or arrest &rebel
spy, to proclaim martial law in a rebel
oounlry,or to appoint a provisional governor
for Conquered Louisiana or abandoned
Tennessee.- Look back through the de
bstep of the Opposition; there is nothing
cOnstitutional i but slavery and rebellion,
coaling en uoconstitutiocul as coercion
and emancipation. Judging from these
debites, the Constitution was especially
framed to repress liberty, punish fidelity 1
to the Unioo,lshield oppression,and honor
tree - chary and great crime. - View war
measures mall constitutional now. Great
light is throwU ispon'the Constitution by
the eitrrenderl of Lee. The gleam of suc

a President. Kentucky, Missouri, Maryland,
and.Deliinitre ; States with strong corifeditate
proclivities. w ill, ais claimed; furnish thirty
one, while the other forty-six can be made up
by the Democrats of New Jersey, New York,
and. Connecticut. The classification of votes
by which the President would thus be elected,
would stand—confederates 80, semi-confed
erates 31, Democratic 46. This Presidential
scheme will undoubtedly fail, and yet it is the
only One that has the slightest 'chanc6 of suc
cess. If the Union party can be beaten at all,
it must be by this or some similar combination.
Suppose it successful then,What would belthe
character of the new Administration ?' Four
members of the Cabinet would belong to the
eighty c'onfederate votes and the other 'three
to the seventy-seven from the northern and
border States. All presidential appointments
at home and abroad must be made on the
same line of division. -
If, as is alleged,this combination could also
carry"' majority of Congress, the confederates
would have a majority of that majority,and in
caucus (giiing.their alliea the Clerk) would
demand the Speakers and . a majority of all
committees, such - as the Ways and. Means.
Claims, and Pensions, to which their peouliar
interests might" be, referred. Pensions must
then be surrendered or divided with confed
erate 'claimants ;. service in the Union Army
would be an impediment to political success,
and the Treasury, supplied by the industry
and economy of the North, would be steadily'
absorbed in confederate damages. Then your
creditors might count their worthless bonds
and learn exactly how much it cost them to
reclaim the'r fugitive masters. Then the
pensionless widowsand orphans of our val
ien. dead might bemoan in poverty and neg
lect the ingratitude of a Republic saved, by a
hushand's and fatber's blood. And then our
surviving soldiers must conceal their honor
able nears to save a humble position in the
capital they helped to preserve—for the enemy.
Then, sir, we all see, feel, and realize what
the Opposition, in different phraseology, con
stantly assert, thst the object of the war was
to force the rebels to become our rulers.
