Prior to that time Tho Confederate debts local and general had Boon repudiated so that the vast increase which has since resulted is All chargeable directly to the reconstruction policy of the president.

The enhanced West of. dueling state administrations has fully kept Pace with Tho unprecedented inflation of debt Whilo taxation has gone in Many instances to Tho extent of stripping the people of All Means of living. Thus in Arkansas Tho annual Cost of conducting the government was in 1861? $ 204,096, while in 1870 it is shown to have been $ 2,140,372. Tho tax rate before Tho War was ii Mills it now exceeds 40 Mills.

That is Tho material aspect of late reconstruction Asil had developed under Tho auspices of i does it not show in a during Light How certainly the worst results of social disorder will follow close upon the attempt to substitute a personal for a constitutional government or a military for a civil Rule ? and do not the two aspects when taken together to. O political and the material demonstrate in their delineation that policies More at variance with any Success in restoring cordial Good will in sections Roc ont y Tranquili Zoil could not have Beon fallen upon if the Union a to to henceforth a Bond indeed t on it must represent a common Protection at the South a Well As at the North its Federal authority must be the exponent of the whole country taking direction from a free expression of Tho whole people. It cannot in a state of peace continue to enact a Conquest and rolled a free government. If it is to assume the task of reconciliation then it must Lay aside the role of arbitrary Power. If it is to moan peace it cannot with impunity connive at plunder. Yet it was peace and reconciliation which Tho president pledged himself to accomplish. And now answer my fellow citizens in All sincerity and banishing whatever of partisan fooling May have been aroused can ilbo possible that a Rule so a propitious toward reconciliation As is thus demonstrated out of Tho facts of reconstruction could possibly a o emanated from Sincore desire to administer our National affairs in that interest la it nol evident thai this Groat Public demand has been unhesitatingly sacrificed / and to what end it was not in the behalf of order for with few local exceptions no disorder Haa Boon projected. Ii was not As a morality., for i have shown that it has put to Tho blah All past experiences of corrupt spoliation. It could have Beon Only therefore to perpetuate Power for Tho administration and its followers. And is it not equally evident to you in fact is it not Tho one deduction that flows freely Forth trom All Power this disregard of popular rights this unparalleled devastation of communities which it claimed to govern that the present administration is now utterly disqualified for longer assuming the task of reconciling Tho people a f Tho South to the now order and of wedding Ahcin firmly to the life of Tho Republic against it there is Evory prejudice in it no qualification. Its agents Are not Patriot who May to trusted with such work but plunder cars intent on Quilo other accomplishment. Its lines have been Sot and hardened in alien policies and. Only those who value partisan Success More and peaceful restoration less can henceforth justify to their own conviction a longer support of Tho president and his policies or a further Extension of his official Lerm. Tiik Kun injection of w1iitk8 to Hlaoky an impossibility. The second great problem about which the people of the United states have been most concerned because wisely foreseeing that its achievement was to Eole guarantee of any abiding peace hereafter has Beon Tho reconciliation of the Racos at Tho South and the establishment of such civil order there As would insure that result. Again and in this respect has the administration proved a Success 7 in discussing this Branch of Tho subject it will to Well first to discriminate As to what Success implies. You will readily concede i know that All our experience of the subjection of Tho Black race by Tho White race under the old forms of slavery was nol a Success. It was was not a Success although for Many years sustained by the whole Power of the Federal government by Tho army and Tho Navy the Congress and to president. It was not a Success although subjection haul tamed its spirit and almost extinguished any courageous aspiration for achieving its own Liberty. And so likewise i May claim that any attempt to subject the White race to the Black race to govern by virtue of caste to Rule in Tho name of color will equally fail to prove a Success. Dwellers together in the same land it must be either peace or War Between Tho races. If it is to be peace Ihen far of her politics As i shall undertake to show will have to be instilled and commended there to the Confidence of both races than any which have yet been advanced by the administration. If it is to be War then rest assured the sympathies of this nation will follow those against whom injustice Aud oppression and deprivation f rights May be wantonly enforced. If it is to to War then the Fellowship of Kindred blood will connect Over this land and they who have needed Iho entire moral support of a Freedom Loving people to Rescue them from bondage will stand isolated in Tho attempt to perpetuate Tho same injustice from which they themselves have just been delivered. Nor will it be a Success but a failure so dismal that history will weep to record its misfortunes. Let it not be War in any event if the patriotism of Tho nation can Avert such ending. Harmonization of the rack.
