Speech or Gen. Butler.
Gen. Builer was tendered a grand re
caption, at the New York Academy of
Muic. on Thursday evening, by the
members and friends of ihe Union League
of that city. The tremendous auditori
um was densely crowded with boih ladies
and gentlemen, and the greatest enthusi
aMii and good feeling urevaiied during
After thanking Mayor Opdyke and ihe
members of the Union League lor the
honor conferred in tendering him a pub
lic reception of such magnificence. Gen
eral Builer began to review the history
of the rise and progress ol the rebellion
a: some lngih
I am an old Andrew Jackson Demo
crat of twenty years standing. Ap
plause and three cheers for thb old hero
of New Orleans. And so far as I know
I have never swerved from his teachings,
Applause. Up to the time when dis
union took place I weat as far as the
fartherest in support of the constitutional
rights of the South, however biiter or
distasteful to me were the obligations
which my fathers assuired forme in the
compromises of the Constitution. They
made ihem all, and i: was not for me to
reject the bitter. I took them all. Ap
plause. Fellow Democrats, I took ev
ery one because ihey were constituted
obligations applause and taking each
and all, I stood by the Souih and South
ern rights under the Constitution, until I
advanced and looked into the pit of dis
union, and, not liking the prospect, quiet
ly withdrew. Lauhter and applause.
We went apart from that hour, and we
are forever apart. You may judge of
this when I say that on the 2Sih of De
cember, 1860, I shook haud3 on ;erms of
friendship with Jefferson Davis, and on
the 2Sth of December, 1862, 1 had the
pleasure of reading his proclamation that
I was to be hung at sight. Laughter
And now, my friends, if you will al
low me this line of thought a moment, as
wo come up to the point of time when
these .men laid down their constitutional
obligations, I will inquire what were my
rights and what were theirs? At that
hour they repudiated the Censitution of
ihe United States by solemn vote, under
the forms of law, in solemn convention.
And not only that, but they took arms in
their hands and undertook by force to
rend from under the Constitution what
seemed to them the fairea portion of the
heritage which my fathers had given to
me and to my children as a rich legacy ;
and when tfcey did that I concluded, from
every fact, that they had derogated and
forfeited every constitutional right, and
had relieved me of every constitutional
obligation to them. Loud and contin
ued applause. And when I was called
upon to say what should be my action in
regard to slavery, I was left to the na
tural instincts of my heart, as prompted
by. a Christian education in New Eng
land Applause and I dealt with it
accordingly for I was no longer bound
by cohstituiional obligations. Applause
Then I undertake to claim, respectfully,
but earnestly, that the same sense of du
ty to my constitutional obligations, and to
the rights of. the States, which required
me, so long as they remain loyal, to sup
port the system of slaverythat same
seroe of duty and right. I say, after they
had gone out from under the Constitu
tion, caused me to follow the dictates of
my own conscience, untrammeled as I
uA Kon hpretofore. fADDlause.T And
i0i rhy friends, hovrcver miudfinj 1,
may have been and I speak to my old
Democratic friends I claim' that we
went along step by step together up lo
that point, and we shall still go along
step by step. If the sacred obligations
that bound us together had not been bro
ken, I would not have thus been left to
follow . the dictates of God's law aud of
humanity. Loud applause. .
And now, my friends, I do not know
but that I shill commit some, heresy, but
as a Democrat, and as an Andrew Jack
son! Democrat, . I ; say that I am not for
the Union as it was. Loud cheers I
have the honor to say as a Democrat, and
an Andrew Jackson Democrat, that I am
not for the Union to be again as it was.
Understand me. I was .fo'r the Union
as it was, because I saw, or thought I
saw,' in the future the troubles which
have burst upon us; but, having under
gone those troubles, having spent all the
blood, and treasure, I do njt like to go
back again and be "cheek , by jowl" a
we were before with South Carolina, if
I can help it.' Cheers. Let no man
misunderstand me ; and 1 repeat it, lest
it might be misunderstood, I do not mean
to givet up a single inch of the soil of
South '.Carolina. If I had beeu alive at
that lime, ai.d had the position and abili
ty, I would have dealt with South Caro
lina as Jac.son did, and kept her in at
all hazzards'.- But now she has gone out;
and I will take care that when she comes
in again she will come in better behaved.
Laughter and cheers I will take care
that she shall be no longer the firebrand
of the Unicn ; ay. that she shall enjoy,
what-her people never yet have enjoyed,
the blessings of a rt publican form of
GovernmenL Cheers. Therefore, in
that view, I am not for the raconstruction
of the Union as it was. I have spent
tears and blood enough on it. in conjunc
tion with ' ray fellow-citizens, to make it
a Utile better. It was good enough if ii
had been let alone. - The old house was
good enough Jo me ; but as they have pull
ed down the early part, J propone, when we
rebuild i7, to build it vp with all the mod
ern improvements. . EnIwHasiic ap
plause. - '
The Israelites took possession, of the
land of Canaan, which they got from al
ien enemies. Has it not been held from
the beginning of the world down to this
day that the whole property of alien en
emies belong to the conqueror, and that
it is at his mercy and his clemency what
shall be done with it ? For one I would
take the property of the rebels and give
part of it to the loyal man of the South,
enough to make him as Well or nearly as
well, as he was before ; and I would take
ihe rest of it and distribute it among the
volunteer soldiers who have gone to sup
port the Government. Bravo bravo
And, ?o far as I know them, if we shall
settle South Carolina with them, I shall
be quite willing to receive her back inta
the Union in ths course of a few years.
That lends us to deal with another
propositon ,vhal shall be done with the
slaves? Here, again. th laws of war,
dealing with that . species of property,
have long since settled themselves with
clearness and exactness. It is at the
hand of the conqueror of the Govern
ment which has maintained or extended
its jurisdiction over the territory to deal
with those slaves as it pleases ; to free
them or not, as that Government chooses.
It is not for the conquered to make terms
or to send their friends to make terms
on that question. Laughter and ap
plause. Another diliiculty which seems
to trouble my old Democratic friends is
the question of arming ihe negro slaves.
If these Confederate States are alien en
emies, is there any objection that you
know of and if so, state it to arming
one portion of that foreign country against
the other ? No.no. Suppose we were
at war with England, who here would
get up in New York and say we must
not arm Irish, lest they should hurt
somebody? Laugbture and applause.
Again : there is no law, either of war, or
of nations, or of governmental action,
that I know of which prevents a country
arming one portion of its citizens or its
subjects for the defense of that portion
or of any other,
There is one question which I am of
ten asked, and I will answer it here once
for all will the negroes fight ? On that
subject I have no personal experience,
because I left the Department of ihe
Gulf before they were fairly brought in
to action. But they did fight under Jack
son at Chalmette. Let Napoiean III.
answer it, who has hired ihem to do what
the veterans 6f ihe Crimea coulr not do
whip the Mexicans. Laughter. Let
the veterans of Napoletu I., who, under
his brother-in-law Le Clerc, were whip
ped out of St.; Djmingo by them, say
whether they will fight or not. Ap
plausej What has been the demoraliza
ing effect on them of contact wiih the
white man I know not ; but I cannot for
get that they and their fathers would not
have been slaves if . they had not been
captives of war in their own country,
made so in hand-to-hand fights among
the several chiefs. . That .hows that they
would fight at sometime. If you want
to know any more about it I can only ad
vise yo-j to try thera.
When I left the Department of the
Gulf I sat down and deliberately put in the
form of an address to the people of that
depaptmcntthe executive acts I had done,
and I said to them, You k now I have
done these things.' I have now watied
more than three months, and I have yet
to hear a denial from that department
that these things were done. Cheers.
To that I can point as a justification of
your (the Mayor's) too flattering eulogy,
and as an answer to every slander and
every calumny uttered against me. The
ladies of New Orleans know whether
the jr were tafe upder my adcoiniiiratioa
iof the government of that city. Has my
one of them ever said she was not ? The
men of New Orlean know whether life
and property were safe. Has any man
ever said they were not ? The poor of
New Orleans know whether they were
fed upon the means taken from the rich
rebels. Has . any man denied that ?
Cheers. To that record I poinL It
may be the only answer that I shall ever
make to the calumnies that have been
uitered against me and mine. (Cheers-
I desire to say a single word on anoth
er &ubjeci on what are the prospects of
of this war. It will do you no good to
give my opinion, timpiy because it would
be very much like the opinion of another
man ; but I will show you a reason for
the faith that is in me that this war is
progressing to a successful termination.
Compare the state of the country as it
was on the 1st of January, 1S63. with it"
state on the 1st of January, 1862,' and
tell me if progress has not been mad?
On the 1st of January, 1S62, the Un
ion arms held no considerable portion of
Mississippi, no considerable portion of
Kentucky, co considerable portion of
Tennessee ; none of Virginia, except Ft.
Monroe and Arlington heights ; none of
North Carolina, except Hatteras; none
of South Carolina except Port Royal.
All the rest was pround in struggle at
least, and was regularly furnishing sup
plies to the rebels. Now the rebels hold
none of Missouri ; none of Kentucky ;
noue of Tennessee for any valuable pur
poses of supplies, because the western
purt is in our hands, and the eastern
part has been so overrun by contending
armies that all its supplies have been ex
hausted. They hold no portion of Vir
ginia valuable for supplies, and that is
not eaten out by their armies. We hold
one-third of Virginia and. one-half ot
North Carolina. We hold our own in
South Carolina, and I hope that we shall,
before the 11th of this mouth, hold . a
little more. Knthu-iastic .cheering.
We hold two-thirds of Louisiana in point
of weahb and population. We hold all
Arkansas and Texas, so far as supplies
are concerned, so .long as Admiral Far
ragut is between Port Hudson aud Vicks
burg. Applause And I believe the
colored troops hold Florida by last ac
counts Laughter and appUuae. Now
let us see io what the rebellion has been
reduced. To ihe remainder of Virginia,
a part of North Carolina, the largest part
of South Carolina, all Georgia, Alabama
and Mississippi, a small portion of Lou
isiana and Tennessee Texas being, as I
said before, cut off. Now we draw
strong hope from this as ihe rebel sup
plies came principally either from Ken
tucky, Tennessee, Missouri, Arkansas
or Texas, and thse sources are now
comparatively beyond their reach.
To this fact I look largely to the sup
pression cf the rebellion and the over
flow of revolution. They have come to
the end of their conscription; we have
not begun ours. Lalighter. They have
come to the end of iheir national credit ;
we have pot put ours in any market of
the world. Applause. Aud why should
any man be disappointed? Why should
any" man say that this great work has
gone aloug too slow? Why should any
mau feel impatient ? I have shared in
that impatience myelf, and was saying
to a friend but the other day, when I saw
that our navy did not catch the steamer
Alabama, that there must be something
wrong in thy Navy Department ; but I
was reminded how Paul Jones, with a
single vessel, set the whole navy of Eng
land at defiance, and worked his will up
on the England coast, and that Lord
Cochrane, wiih a single ship, kept ihe
whole French coast in terror against the
entire French navy. .
He wouid not charge that the English
minister had been tampering with our
leading politicians, but our leading poli
ticians had been tampering with him.
When he saw that ihe other day every
drop of blood in his veins boiled, and he
should like then to have seen any of
ihose politicians. Laughter. What
kind of politicians were they ? Voices
'-CopperheadsY "traitors," "conserv
ative politicians." Laughter. They
could not be Democratic politicians. Now
he would like to hear Andrew Jackson
speak a few words to .those politicians
who now call themselves Democrats. A
voice he would hang them. No he
would not have the opportunity ; he could
not catch them. Louud laughter. He
described these men as decendauts in a
direct line of Judas Iscariot. intermarried
with Benedict Arnold. Applause, and
cries! of "Booby Brooks. V "Fernando
Wood,'" &c. A voice He knows them
He understood that there was a man
in New York 'vho professed not to know
the meaning of the word loytliy cries
of "Wood, Wood," and hisses but he
would say that it was the duty of every
man to be loyal to the Government, to
stand to it, and to pardon its errors if it
