Thf Frtdtnt-nV I'irtaii IJ I!, us vp
lord Ly th Pr?idtr.t, rv3 Jimp'y an
enlargement of the powers cf l.'.e pres
ent Bureau of ihat nutd. Th power
granted by ' Congrt-fs ii !at Hiil
wer absolutely necesr-ary lu tSe prutrc
tion of the liberated slaves now in the
tsuuih. Kvery day we hear of the bru
talities these people are subjected to by
their former ma-ier who, incensed
and infuriated by the losses their trea
son entailed on them, seem inclined to
vent all their uncer against ihe unpro
tected blacks. It" we have a gavtrn
ment that deserves i he name, and
would not stain our history by a Ibu Kr
page thin even pa-t altviry entaib-d
on it, we hold it u b the imperative
duty of Congress U extend us proiril
idt hand over the freedmen of the
southern S'.ates, and shield them from
the ir natural enemiis President John
son promised them -protection, but to
day he ha3 turned his back against
them, and Secretary Seward tells us,
not tha. thvi revolted States are in har
mony with him, but that he is in har
mony with all the revolted States.
This act of the President lias pro
duced two feelings of the mot opposite
character in the people of these Utrted
States. Among his former frienHs and
supporters, those who voted for him and
stood by him in trying time, we find
dWappointment and a just iudignatiou;
but if we turn to his open and avowed
enemies wa hear rejoicing and the
buomiiig of cannon not as in Jays still
freiii iu our memory, announcing the
defeat of our enemies; but, we sorrow
to say it heralding a victory over iu
friends. If there were nothing but
this bare fact to uide us in our judg
ment, it vcovli sullict.. tv hen sticti men
as VaHandtghmn rejoice at our Chief
Magistrate's open rupture w.tli the par
ty which elected him ar.d when the
Democrats of tha North are jubilant,
because the gallant black who, unlike
tl...... u...I,l.r((l hi iniiket and fought
for our common nationalityis thrown
back upon the tender mercies of his
former owner, it is high uir.e that we
enquire into Andrew Joha-oa's action
and if in litis enquiry we condemn
his course as vro:ig we Jo only that
which nearly two thirds of Congress
has already don3. Let thti free north
awaken from its lethargy, and pour in
its condemnation of a recreant Chief
Magistrate. Let it show to ihoe br.ve
and true gentlemen in Congress who
voted to pass the bill over the Presi
dent's veto that the great free heart of
the people is with them.
e know that tuere may be some,
claiTiiing - to belong to our party, who
bold office under the President, and
who may cry hush! but we believe that
it is the duty of a brave people to stand
by their representatives, in defiance of
all petty influences that can be brought
to bear on them. Let the clarion notes
be ruug throughout the land that the
nation supports its verdict as expressed
in the action of Congress. There is
no fear of a disruption of our party
it is only a craven cowardice that can
hurt it those who cringe and plead
for the President's falsifying conduct
can be j pa red from the great party of
Freedom-loving people who. sacrificing
their treasure and their best blood, sav
ed the nation's life when jeopardized
bv ihesa same men who now chuckle
over Andrew Johnson's conduct.
It is a disgrace to a nation like ours
that its chief secretary should go about
the country apologizing for his chief's
conduct, and trying to appease and turn
the tide of indignation that justly stirs
the intelligent masses of a free people.
Let all mark the men who falter now.
Watch and rer.iombr who were with
the Union party when all went smooth,
but whose courage to day lays in the
pilm of Andrew Johnson's hand.
Not all the cannon in the land can
drown our voices through the ballot
box, and wis predict that this liut act
the President vil: do more t-j cement
the great Union party than anything
else that could have happened. If this
i a rupture, it wil. be with him only,
and not in the pin) that has been tried
in '.he ordeal cf an uupara'l?!ed civil
war, and found "ever, true to the great
principles of justice, humanity aud pa-trioti.-m
which animate it.
After the veto, message was
mad? pohlic, a guard was placed around
the Vhile House, and none but Demo
crats allowed to pass. What's the mat-ter?-c

Rock Bljil', anJ enquired who lived j
Mrs ' McCartuey went to
. ar'ec'-u tlieir. outs
cnv- a u d
went i;it j trie houe and
her liuiU:.J, who went cut to t.hem. !
They asked theTcad to o'ii Mat. John- j
ston's. H i replied that he did not j
know such a man. They said hejived !
e b'jtiDiu suniewhu'f. Mr. j..Ic
Cartr.'-y then asked them if they knew
they were olfthe road, as no - road led
by his house. : They replied that they
did. He then told ihem that the way ;
rtruund the blufls was difficult to find
after night unlets thty were acquaint- !
td. They, by this time, became some
what insulting, and demanded to stay
all night. To this he replied that they
could not, as he had n j accemmoda
tions for them. They swore that they
did not care for accommodations, if
their horses were fed. Mr. Mc. then
iuformud them that they were in the
edf e of town, aud that the hotel was
not far distant. To this one of them
swore that he often hearcl of hotels
where there were none within miles,
and. that they would stay there, hotel or
not. At this, Mr. Mc. told the in that
they could not ttay there that night,
and then went in aud iut the door.
The women (Mrs. McCartney and
Mrs. Root) were very much excited, as
the men continued swearing and threat
ening, and riding up against the fence
as though they would come in. Again
Mr. McCartney went out and remon
strated with them; but this only excited
them, and one of them drew a revlover
and swore he would shoot him. Not
relishing the iJea of being shot down
in his own door, he picked up a stick of
stove-wood and ordered them t3 leave.
But to this he heard, in the midst of
their oaths and threats, the click of the
revolver as it was cocked, as he sup
posed, and, fully believing that they
meant to shoo:, he threw the slick at the
pistol, jumped inside the dour as one
of them fired. The ball, if any, went
into the wood -pile in the wash-room.
The door was ihen fhutand fasiened.and
when Mr. McCartney went to bjlt the
frontdoor, they rode around there and
shouted shoot him! shoot him! They
continued shouting, threatening and
swearing shot a fecond tune. and theni
leftj saying that tkey would coinii back j
ud shoot the -d d Yankee.''
The men were arretted on Thurs

H.l!, as ati unwarranted m.latary meas
ure, and likely to entail great expense
lo the Government sums il up as follows
I cannot but add. another very greut
odjecuou. The constitution imperative
ly declares that every State shall be
represented in Congress. The origin
al freedman's bureau bill was necessa
rily passed in the absence of the States
cheitly affected, because the people
wer conciously engaged in the rebel
lion. Now the case is changed. The
States are attending Congress by loyal
representatives, solicting their constitu
tional right. . The very facts that reports
were and are made againts the good
disposition of the southern people, is
adduisnal reason why they should have
representatives of their own to explain
their condition and reply to accusations,
aud assist by local knowledge in
perfecting measures immediately af
fecting themselves. I would not inter
fere with right of Congress to judge,
each house for itself , the qualifications
of its own members, but thai authority
cannot be construed as iucluding the
right to shut out, in time of peace, any
State frcrn representation. At pre
ent all the people of eleven States re
ex luded. Thoe who were most faith
ful during- the war not less than others.
The State of Tennessee, for instance,
where the authorities were engaged in
rebellion, was restored to her constitu
tional relations by the patriotism and
energy of her irjurtd and betrayed
people. I know no reason why -Tennessee
should not fully enjoy all her
constitutional relations lo the United
The President stands before the
coun ry in a different attitude from any
member of Congress chosen from a tin
gle tiiillicl. The President is chosen
by the people cf all '.he States. Elev
en States are not represented. Itwonld
seem to be his duty to present their just
claims Id Congress. The indefinite or
permanent exclusion of any part of the
country must be attended by a spirit of
difgust aud complaint. It is unwise
and dargerous to pursue a course which
will unite a large section of country
against another section, no matter how
much ihe latter may predominate. It
is hardly necessary for me i inform
Congress that in my own judgment.
incsi cf these St.itrs as far as depends
upon their own action, have already
been fully restored and are entitled to
enjoy contituti i al rights. Reasoning
from 'he constitution itself aud from the
actual situation of the country, I feel
bound to assume ithat with the Federal
courts restored nd in full exercise of
their functions, the rights and interests
of all clashes of me;), with the aid of
the militia, be essentially protected.
Should this explanation. unhappily fail,
which I do not antc pate, the executive

The President l.a directed the with
drawal of. Government advertisements
from Forney's Chronicbi, which has
taken a stand against the administra

members of Congress: "The loyal
heart of Iowa is warming anew. No
faltering here! The radical majority
in Congress will be triumphantly sus
tained. The Republican fl ig sjjail not
be lowered, but stand firm, whatever
the president may tio. The great West
is as immovable now as she was durii.g'

A dispatch from Wushington, 23d,
says: Such a carnival of treason as yes
terday transpired at G rover's Theater
and in front of the White Iloiiie, has
never before been held in public in the
North. Iloben Johnson, the Presi
dent's private secretary, end his son
in law, Mr. Patterson, Senator elect
from Tennessee, were present and oc
cupied prominent positions. Lincoln
was denounced by one speaker and the
sentiment cheered. Taken in cmnec

been beyond all question the most dis
graceful of any ever witnessed in the

by the President, and received his ap

his views. It was well understood by
the fri'?t:ds of the bill that he had ex

over and got him to object to the whole

We find many in our community who
think the Freeduien's Bureau Bill had
something to do with giving the elective
franchise to the negro. In order to
show exactly whit the bill did propose
we give the following synopsis:
Section 1. Extends the act of March
3d, 1S05, until otherwise provided; and

freedmen in all parts of the United
State?, the President to divide the coun

fuel and other supplies, including trans
portation, to the destitute, under rules
and regulations, as he may direct.

parcels not exceeding 40 acres at mod
