„
THE .tt JEST M , EECH EVER DELIVERED
IN THE UNITED STATES SENATE BY
A NEdRO SENATOR :
• Speech of &niter Revels.
Mr. Presitent :rise at this partic-'
ular juncture in the discussion of the
Georgia bill, with feelings which, per
haps, never. beforeentered into the ex
perience - of any member of this body.
I rise too with misgivings as to the pro
priety of lifting my voice at this early
period after my admission into the Sen
ate. Perhaps it were wiser for me, so
inexperienced in the'details of Senato
rial duty, to remain a passive listener
in the progress of this debate ; but when
I remember that my term is short, and
that the issues with which this bill is
fraught are momentous in their present
and future influence upon the well-be
ing of my race, I would seem -Ili-differ
exit to the importance of the hour t i and
recreant to the high trust imposed upon
me, if I hesitated, to lend my voice in
behalf of the loyal peopleof the South.
I therefore waive all thoughts 'as to the
propriety of entering into this discus
sion, breaking through a generally un
-derstood etiquette of this body. , When
questions arise :which bear upon the
safety and protection of the loyal white
and colored population of those States
lately in rebellion, I cannot allow any
thought as to the mere propriety to en
ter,into my consideration of duty. The
responsibilities, of being the exponent
of such a constituency as I have the
honor to 'represent, are fully appreciated
by me. . I bear about me daily the keen
est sense of their weight, and that feel
ing prompts me now to lift my voice
- for the first time in this council cham
ber of the nation. And, Sir, I stand
to-day, on this floor to appeal for protec
tion from the strong arm of the Gov
ernment for her loyal children, irre
spectlyeof eolok and race, who ,are citi
zens of the Southern States, and partic
nlarly of the great State of Georgia..
ItLek. Racc 0 1 q
icetiett ion
. lam well aware,- Sir, that the ideals
abroad that an antagonism' exists be
tween the whitey and blacks;"tharthat
- race which the nation raised, from the
degradation Of slavery, and endowed
with full and' unqualified rights and
privileges Of citizenship, are intent up
op power ,at whatever price it can be
gained. It has been .the well-considered
aim and purpose of a class, not confined
to the South, to spread this charge ove
the land ; and their efforts are as vigor
ous-to-day to educate the people of thiS
nation into that belief, as they were at
the close of the war. It was not un
„eommon to find this same class, even
during the rebellion, prognosticating a
servile wpr. It may have been that the
wish was father to the thought; and,
Sir; as th recognized representative of
My downtrodden people, I deny the
1
charge, a d hurl it back into the teeth
of those who make it, and who I be
lieve have not a true and conscientious
desire to further the interests of the
whole South. Certainly, any one pos
sessing a knowledge of °the colored pop
ulation of my own or any other . State,
need net be reminded of the noble con
duct of that people, under the mosttry-
ing circumstances m the history of I the
late war, when they were beyond 'the
protection of the Federal forces. While
the Confederate arty pressed into its
ranks every white , male eapable of bear
ing arms, the mothers, wives, daugh
ters and sisters of the Southern soldiers
were left defenceless and in the power
of the blacks, upon whom the chains of
slavery were still riveted;—and to bind
those chains the closer was the real is-
Sue for which so much life and property
were sacrificed. And now,Sir, I ask,
How did that race act? -id they, in
those days of Confederate weakness and
impotence, evince the malignity 'of
which we hear so much? Granting,
for the sake of argument, that they
were ignorant and besotted, which I do
not believe, yet, with all their supposed
ignorance and credulity, they, in their
way, understood as fully as you or I, the
'awful import of the contest. They
knew if the gallant corps of national
soldiers were beaten back, and their
flag trailed in the dust, that it was the
presage of still heavier bondage. They
longed; tno, ns their fathers 'did before
them, for the aklvent of that epoch
over which was flied the hallowed light
of inspiration itself. !They desired, too,
with their fathers,
to freleotrie the feet
of the strangers, slio 'with the Peaceful.
preparation of good n vs. i Weary years
of bondage had told t leis tale of sor
row to the Court of coven. In the
councils of the Great Father of All,
they knew, the adjudication :of their
case, albeit delayed for years,
.in which
patient suffering had nearly exhausted
itself, would, in the end, bring 'them'
the boon for wltich they sighed--God's
most blessed gift to his creatures—the
inestimable boon of liberty They wail
ted, and they waited patiently. In the
absence of . their masters, they protected
the virtue and chastity, of defenceless
women. , Think, Sir, for a moment,
what the'condition of this land would
be to-day, if the slave population had
"'sell - in servile insurrection against
those who, month bymon th, were figh t
big to perpetuate that institutien which
brought them all the evils of which
they complained. Where would have'
been the security for property, female
chastity; and childhood's innocence i-r-
The bloody counterpart of ,sueh a story
of cruelty and wrong Would have, been
paralleled only in those' ,Chapters of
Jewish history as recorded hy Josephus,
or in the stilt later atrocities of that
1 , reign of terror which Stint . thei'n n fortu

which, I believe,i • the' - President, Con
gress and the Republican- part l y' will
meet these questions, so prolific of.yeal
tn.! woe=notl only to my own people, but
4
to' the whole South. ''They 'have been,
SO far as I can read the history , of the,
tlineS, influenced by no spirit of petty'
tyranny. - The poet has well said :
"0, it io extelfont.

• • I
And hciW. have they used that:power,
lodged in' thern by the'people? In acts
of cruelty'and oppression - toward those
who sought to rend ha twain, this good
ly' fabric of our fathers : -,the, priceless
heritage of so much hardship and en
durance in Revolutionary times? Let
the reconstruction- enactments answer
the interrogation. No -poor words of
mine are,needed to defouitthowiseand
beneficent legislation which has been
extended alike to white and colored cit
izens. The Republieari party is hot in=
flamed, as ; some would _fain have the
country believe, against the white pop
ulation of the 'South South; its
_borders are
wide:enough for all truly loyal men to
find within them peace and repose from
the din and discord of angry faction.—
And be that loyal man white or black,
that great party of our republic will, if
consistenOvith the record it has alrea
dy made - for posterity, throw around
him the same impartial security in his
pursuit of liberty and happiness. if a
certtdn class of the South, had accepted
in good faith the benevolent overtures
'which Were offered - to them with no
,niggard hand, to-day would net find
,our land still harrasSed with feuds and
contentions.
• Congressional Protection Demanded.
I remarked, 11 r. President, that I
.1 1
rose to plead for Oteetion. for the de
fenceless race wh now send their dele
gation to the seat of \ government to sue
for that which this Vongress alone can
secure to them. And here let me say
ftirtber that the people of the North
owe to the colored race a deep obliga
tion, whieh it is rio• easy matter to ful
fil. When the Federal armies' were
thinned by death and disaster, and som
ber
clouds overhung the length and
breadth of the republic, and the very
'air Vas pregnant with the rumors of for
eign !interference-7-in those dark days
of defeat, whose !memories even yet
haunt us as an ugly'dream—from what
source did our nation, in its seeming .
death-throes, gain additional and new
found power? It was the sable sons of
the South that valiantly ruAhed to the
rescue, and but for th O r intrepidity and
ardent daring, many i.,:t Northern fire
sidC would miss to-rya Y paternal conn
se!l;,or a brother's love. Sir, I repeat
i,lle fact, that the cOlor3d race saved to
the noble women of New England and
the Middle States tire men on whom
they lean to-day for security and safety.
Many of my race, the representatives
of these men on the field of battle, sleep
in the Countless graves of the South.—
If those quiet resting places of our hon
ored dead could speak to-day, what, a
mighty voice—like to " the rushing
s of
a mighty wiud"--:would come up - filim
those sepulchral home's. Could we re
sist the eloquent pleadings of their ap
ed? Ah, Sir, I think that this clues- '
--IA:, r. ;...e. ta........ - .eliatn, • ams drt , ..., en 1 03 es ....pro-tor, -
ti io u for the loyal people of Georgia
would close its legal technicalities, and
we
,would cease to hesitate in our provi
sions for their instant relief. Again ' I
regret this delay on other grounds. The
tanht is frequently flung at its that a
Nemesis more terrible than the Greek
personation of the anger of the gods
awaits her hour of direful retribution.
'We are told that at no distant day a
great uprising of the American people
will (demand that these reconstruction
acts ilf Congre:ss be undonft and blotted
fore‘ler from the annals ,!of legislative
enactment. I inquire, Sir, if this de
lay in afibrcling protection to the loyal
ists of the Sate of, Georgia, does not
lend an unconifortable significancy to
this boasting'sneer With which we so
often meet? Delay is perilous , , at best ;
for it is as true in legislation as iu phy
sic, that the longer We procrastinate to
apply the proper r i emedies, the more
chronic becomes the malady we seek to

Treachery of the ex-Rebels li. Georgia.
Mr. Revels then reviewed the history
of athiirs in Georgia, stating that at the
election in November, 1867, for mem
bers to the State Convention, 30,000
white and 80,000 eolored votes were
polled, and a number of colored dele
gates elected. A Constitution r ives fra
med and ratified, 'and a Legislature
elected under it was convened. After
all this, supposing they had passed be
yond Congressional control, the Rebel
element in the Legislature asserted it
self, and many of those whose, disabili
ties had been removed by the State
Convention, which comprised a number
of
i i
colored members, joined in the dee
la ation which was made liy that Leg
isl Lure, that a man having more than
one-eighth of African blood in his veins
was ineligible ,to office. These very
men to whomthe Republican party ex
tended all the rights and privileges of
ciqzenship,'of which they had deprived
themselves, denied political equality to
a large.majority of their fellow citizens.
Twenty-eight members were excailled
On December 22, 1869. Au aet of Con
gress was passed requiring the re-as
sembling of the persons declared elect
ed by the military commander, the res
toration of the expelled members, and
the rejection of others who were dis
qualified. All the conditions ha now
