The "following is the portion of tho Presi- dent's remarks us reported by the agent, of the Associated Press You here mainly joined tb.3 Con- federate sido and fought bravely, risked your lives heroically in behalf of your convictions and''can any true man anywhere fail !o respect a man who risks his life for his convictjotis [1'iolonged nppbiuso And as I ac- cord respect to you, I believe you to be equally liberal ai.d gctir-rous and just feel as I stand before you as one who fought in the Union army for bis conviction I ntn entitled to your respect now thnt the conflict is over My fi lends, Governor ilampton re- pe.iled to you List night the way in which 1 have been in the habit of put- ting it since 1 came to the South There were a luiger proportion of tr.iintid soldiers in your army at first than in ours in much hiryer propor- tion you were good maiksimn and'good horsemen, and that is two thirds of a good soldier.
