Government, and took a solemn oath
as a soldier, that he would defend the
interests of that Government, and pro
tect ncT nonor against tne world. Ana

upon her bounty, wore her uniform,

If I were a private citizen of Ne
braska to-day, and the President had
sent me in here for a confirmation, you
would ask my Senators; is Mr. Tipton
"safe and true" in the light of hi3 past
fidelity, and if informed that I had
proven flagrantly false within the past
tew years, you benators would never
confirm me. If my Senators offered
as a plea in my favor, that I had sub-
mittc J. to tne laws fcinco mv treason to
my neighbors, my country, and my
State, you might be willing that they
should give me omce in their own
good time, but would prefer to confirm
to a general Government office, some
one who had never been compeled to
come back to legal submission, by le
For a national crime, this man has
not shown national repentence. He
submitted when the confederate flag
went down. And though he may say
to intimate friends that he is sorry he
went into the rebellion, that is noth
ing more than every discomfited rebel
feels who considers the price his btate
and section has paid for their temerity.
By this act we are to make him a co
operating Republican leader, while
those doctrines at the foundation of
our organization, and incorporated in
the party platforms on whicn Mr. Lin
coln was twice elected, and which are
the foundation of all our reconstruc
tion labors, have never received the
assent of his will, or been an article of
his political creed. "Such a man may
be taken on probation into a party,
and the time may come when he
might merit promotion. But I am
called upon to believe him little less
than a paragon of discretion, and wis
dom, and political virtue, because he
demanded that his accomplices should
submit to the Republican party as the
proper organization for restoring the
Government. Why should he not
very naturally do that? The party
had conquered him, and extended its
power had held the Senate and House
bv increased majorities had control
of the State goverments was enthu
siastic over its victories and stood
forth the only controling organization
in the country. He had been blindly
devoted to self-destruction, had he
thought of any other policy than that
of submission to such a power.
In this submission there may ne sa
gacity and prudence, without one par
ticle of true repentance and sorrow;
and in as much as perfidy and treach
ery has been the -rule, and decent fi
delity the exception on the part of
these rebels, prudence demands a full
probation. If more than half a life
was lived tq bring about a culmina
tion in treason, when the balance is
terminated, you can only come to a
conclusion,' as to whether it would
have been safe to have been promoted
to office. ' . i
But in as much as this appointment
can only be made, "by and with the
advice and consent of the senate," 1
can not advise thi3 appointment, be
cause l preier all loyal men or tne
South to him. I must advise the se-
ection of some one of them true
among the false faithful among the
faithless always ready to serve us
always ready toxlie if need be for the
old flag and constitution.
But also, prefer all loyal men from
he North to him. And if he is to be
sent from Alabama to Louisiona, why
not send some loyal soldier from the
North, to co-operate with these South
ern Senators, so many of whom- were
so lately from the North themselves.
But if neithar of these classes can be
made available, then I advise taking
for this place, some soldier who was
conscripted and forced to embrace the
stare and bars, as this course , would
pay a slight compliment to tnose
whose heart3 were not freely In the
cause of secession.
You can not say with any show of
truth that this act of magnanimity is
needed on the part of Longstreet. Al

am not anxious to'euy, "corne to the

them, that the power that crashed

coaxing process, and we humble the
government whenever we adopt it.
Asa matter of party policy, I Eay
that every ex-rebel wiio comes to us
from the influence of office socking,
and not of hearty choice from princi
ple, only weakens our ranks; because
all such are always looking for a con
servative pretext, and in their with
drawals will divide at the South, and
demoralise in the North.
And when I am told by Senators
from the South, that Longstreet is to
be courted for his influence over oth
ers, I feel that the fancied case will be
worse than the original disease.
But there is one very ' significant
fact that should cause the prompt re
jection of this candidate, and it is this :
If his name was not here, no respecta
ble number of Senators would advise
to its presentation. The fact that the
President sends it here ha3 challenged
my careful and protracted examina
tion of its claims, but the more I ex
amine the more I revolt at the
thought of confirmation, until I would
vote it3 rejection, if for that vote I
knew I should go into political ban
ishment, and carry with me into exile,
all my aspiring friends. , .

:. But, Mr. President, what do you In
tend to say, by a confirmation, to the
military graduates at West Point, In
all future time? Do you intend to re
verse the world's verdict, which has
always banished from confidence and
places of honor, the soldier who deser
ted his colors through cowardise, or
premeditatedly surrendered them to
the enemy? Do you intend to tell
those young gentlemen as they go out
to posts of duty, behold in the case of
Gen. Longstretft the penalty for trea
son, "forgiveness ana promotion to
civil office, before the fires are quench
ed, or the streams of blood have ceased
to flow."" ' Then would war upon the

But on the assumption that this
man has repented of his treason, even
then, I would not restore him to his
former military rank. I would use
precaution and ordinary prudence.
And I certainly .would rather return
him to the army and place him under
all the restraints of the articles of war,
than to give him the opportunity of
peculation and fraud, where so many
men who had "not previously learned
to deceive and betray, have yielded to
temptation and fallen. j
But, Mr. President, the example
once set, and these exiled patriots will
think themselves badly treated, unless
they received the rewards of their
cheap repentance by speedy promotion
over ineir loyai neigiioors.
Sir, it will be regarded a3 no small
salary, that will reward one of them
for the loss of four years in the war,
and four in idle submission : and the
next question will be, can the salary
be drawn back to the date of the
firing on Sumpter.
lor such exhibitions the time has
not arrived. This confirmation would
shock the lojal sentiment of the
country. , ' '
If Andrew Johnson, after pardoning
all the thieves and counterfeiters; and
accomplices of the assassins of Mr.
Lincoln, and restoring the remains of
all the murderers to their rebel friends,
naci gone one step runner ana recom
mended Long-street for office, the mes
sage would have been indignantly
scouted. . -
There is much respect due the loyal
sentiment of the country, and it must
be consulted and gratified as far as
possible. The loyal men of the South
who gave property, sons and all they
possessed as the price of their loyalty,
who were driven to the mountains for
concealment rSid have since been dis
franchised by the rebels of Georgia, in
the forcible expulsion of their Repre
sentatives from the Legislature with
the people of other communities who
are even now mourning their recent
dead, where daily assassinations occur
a3 the penalty for faithfulness with
the maimed and invalid soldiers of
both sections of the country : together
with all that sturdy loyalty every
where that filled the Treasury with
money and the army with soldiers,
would be shocked at thi3 most unpre
cedented, illtimed and dangerous ex-
Eerience. That public seutimeot must
e respected. Without it money and
soldiers, ships and fortifications were
of little avail. But the loyal sentiment
was the tower of strength,. to which
liberty, 'driven by treason,' fled and
wa3 saved. " ; -
If. therefore, I belived thi3 nomina
tion fit to be made, and thought the
objections of the plain, honest people
only a patriotic fancy, even then I
would respect it, ana decline a connr
mation 'till there should be a3 unani
mous a loyal demand for it as there
was for his capture by Gen. Grant. .
" There is one huaiileating aspect
connected with this subject; I mean
the presence of this rebel uenerai, in
this city, in the capacity of an eqnal,
in competing for office with our brave
and true soldiers, of whom so many
are doomed to disappointment. He
was never their equal in honor; he
was never their equal in success, and
now he could not be their equal, if Gen.
Grant would stand by them as close
as they stood by him on the field of
Mr. President. (Senator Harlan in
the Chair,) I know enough of your
stern sense of honor, fitness and pro
priety, to say that if you had commit
ted the terrible mistake, to say . noth
ing of the deliberate crime that this
man did, you would never have al
lowed your 'hame to come here for
office, to be passed upon by the men
you attempted to slay. , You can not
better the case by paying he did not
as the office, bir, he is here m stri
king distance, so his friends can con
fer with him. and use his promises
and pledges to secure his confirmation.
How dare he, within five years of his
surrender, come here .in eight of tif,3
temple of freedom. to receive the hon
or of office from the votes of men who
held back his huld from applying the
incendiary torch. How dare he even
desire to. tread the soil of the District
of Columbia. In all this I see only
bold, lold Impudence."
Sir. I can tec a very marked dLTcr
ence between christian kindness nnd
forbearance, and going down in the
dust, and seeking for co-operating as
sociates among a cla.-s of men whoso
greatest distinction has been the mag
nitude of their crimes. I can allow
him the privileges of a private citizen;
I will not elect him to office.

in hi3 eulogy of Abraham Lincoln.
He traced his life from his boyhood
up to hi3 death, and held him up as

speeches and writings to show that he
was a great political thinker, and that

great Governments may be built and
great deeds accomplished.

you are still embarrassed with certain

The Great Commercial SixlVc,

From the Flida and LeaOicr Interest. ' ;
In our. various trade article's W9
have had occasion frequently toallnde
to the commercial rivalry between the
great West and the great ICast, in tha
lines of manufacturing and merchan
dise at wholesale. This competition
has been increasing for years, till at
last the East has begun to realize the
results, in the retarded growth of her
general business ; while at tho same
time, she eaw her old customer the
great West, not only increase in con
sumptive power, but also Increp.se in
productive resources, and to the dis
may of the great East, demonstrate
the ability to supply a very large
portion of her wants, and also gives
promise, of a condition of things at no
far distant day, which will enable her
to bid farewall to the Atfanuo States,
as a source of supply, and set rp for
herself, as a manufacturer and whole
Baler, for her own Empire we- t cf tho,
We have watched the ir. crease cf
western manufacturing and western
wholesaling, with the same degree cf
anxiety, for the past five years. The
belief has at lat been forced upon nj,
that we are not supplying half tho
proportion of consumers thre to-day,
that Ave were in 1S0, and if W9 con
tinue to thus lose to an increasing ex
tent per year our hold upon Chicago,
Toledo, Detroit, Milwaukee, and oth
er large and rapidly growing citin;
we shall show a most pitiable li-t of
accounts on our business ledgers at
the end of the next decado. To hold
on where we are, if. wo cannot get
back what we have lost, should be our
great aim and effort. This is only to
be done by instituting a sharp and
earnest competition; such a competi
tion as has not yet been organized ; 9
competition which will enable the
wholesale buyer to land his purchases
at any western city, at less cost than
no can possibly get them from the
wholesalers of hi3 own locality. Our
Eastern manuforturtrs must throw-
down the gauntlet to their sturdy op
ponents of the West, and wair a con
flict dire and desperate, or pradualiy
and steadily, and mt sun.ly, will
