This a duty wits promptly accepted by Tho executive and insurrectionary restoration in the first moments of Pence was believo4�?Tto be As easy and certain As indispensable. These expectations by it via disappointed by legislation and now their is no Union any Valiere. Each state is As free As another tort vial its ova internal uis according to its own will. An elaborate argument follows of pro. Position Tho Union Aud the a Constitution Aro a inseparable As Long As one is obeyed the Ober. Will be preserve eco and if the Ouer is destroyed both must perish together. There is no military or other necessity real or pretended to i. Which can prevent Obs Dicce to the Constitution either North or South. I Hope that you May ultimately concur m Trio Plau of Settle a shut consistent with our Trua interests and sworn duties it is too natural and too just to lit easily abandoned. It is Clear to the pies Denim a apprehension that staua lately in rebellion Are still members of the Union. Tho executive my predecessor As Well As myself Iid Tho Heads of All departments Here adopted and acted Pou the principle that the Union is not resolved but is indissoluble. Congress submitted amendments to Tho Constitution to Southern of Tutch and accepted their ratification judges of Tho supremo court Havo included Southern state in. Their districts for Tho Southern states Aro component parts of Tho Union Tho Constitution is Tho supremo Law for them As for All other states they Aro bound to obey it and so Aro we being sincerely convinced that these views Are Correct. Tho president recommends a repeal of All acts placing Tho Southern states under military masters. Tho conflict a tween the reconstruction Acta and Tho rights of Tho people under to Constitution is argued Aud illustrated at length. Alluding to negro suffrage the president Mayo the of Tho states to negro domination is worse than Tho existing military despotism. The people will endorse endless military oppression rather than degrade them-1 elves by subjection. To Tho negro race. The Blacks Are entitled Wolf and humanely governed but it it a tote possible to give them a government of theirl pwn it would become a grave question whether we ought to do so or whether common humanity would riot re Ltd us to save them from themselves. But it. Is not proposed that boy shall Only govern thesis Check list that they shall govern the White men and in a greater or less extent a it Netrol the destiny of the whole Cou Tryl the negro character is contrasted with Tho. Vitrie intelligence spirit and Progress of Tho White race. Negro population is contrasted with immigrants and the different terms of Weiju iritis citizenship and franchise Are ,--_teii.�?~ the president yields to no Man in his a to the Nilo fur general suffrage hut it re quits for Bonio Claffe Cfaft time suitable for Protection and preparation. To Transfer our political importance to the negro would in the presidents opinion to a Trio abandonment duty which to owe he memory of our fathers and the rights of our children. To depicts horrors inevitable from Tho proposed governments. A the president says it will require a Strong standing army and probably Taro than two Hundred million per annul to maintain the supremacy of Tho negro governments after they Are established. Without Tho military however they Aio wholly incapable of holding in subjection the White people of the South. The presidents financial policy Lias already beep truthfully foreshadowed. Tho message makes no special allusion to Tho Cotton tax. In discussing the presidents duties to says Quot a after grave consideration cases might. Arise where alter Tho Laws had been passed with All constitutional forms and time and placed on Statuto books it. Would to Tho duty of to executive to refuse to carry them out regardless of consequences. This would be involving Tho country in ii justifiable civil War ,.

He favors the Mas ure of retiring our paper currency that a re. Tuin of Gold and . Cd else to to articles of traffic and return to our avenues of Trade. It is unreasonable to expect a return to sound currency so Long As the government by continuing the Issue of irredeemable notes fills the channels of circulation with depreciated paper.
