riTror.Jt and iii.aiu's i.inTi:u.
Tim following are tho eloquent and
truthful remarks made by Senator Mor
ton on Thurrday, in ajieakinjj tmoii the
joint resolution of Mr. Udiniiiitli rela
tive to iiiq icircseiii:ui()ii oi uieouuui
cm Stntcs in tlie electoral college:
3ir. President, I do not rino bo much
to dieusH the. merits- ot .thcro sovenil
propositions as to cay that I hall vote
for that mado by the Senator from Vt
tnont, (Mr. Kilniunds,) lieliovinp that
it is moro spo.'ilio and direct, than the
other two; but pcihnp any onu ol
tiieni would answer tho purjiose.
I desire, how. cr, to say onu word
in regard to tho importance of this
measure. We have been noting the
proceedings of a convention held in tlm
eitv ol .Nuiv ltuk, which lias out piM
adjourned. I have read tho looliilioii
adopted by that conention, tbo plat
lorm of principles it has laid down,
and upon w hieh its r.indldatoft have
been placed ; and I winh to call the at
tention of tho Senate to tho issue that
is presented to tho country by tills
platform and by tho character ol tbeso
General Grant, in his letter of accep
tance said, "let tis havo pence;" but
the Democratic party by tlicir conven
tion in Now York havo said, "let us
havo war; tlietu shall bo no peace."
They havo declared in substance,
might say peihnps in direct terms,
that tho reconstruction of these Stntcs
under tho several acts of Congrcsn
shall not bo permitted to stand, but
shall bo overturned by military force
if they get tho power. Thoy havo an
nounced that thoro shall bo no yeacc
in this country; that there shall bo no
settlement of our troubles, except upon
tho condition of the triumph of those
who havo been in tho rebellion. This
platform and theso nominations ara a
declaration of renewal of tho rebellion.
mI me call your attention to a part of
tho eighth resolution in regard to this
very question. In speaking of tho re
construction of tho htates, they go on
to say that tho power to regulate buii
erago exists with each State, making
no difference between loyal States that
liavo been at peace aud Statos that
havo been in. roblion, putting thew
all upon tho tamo ftoUpg.
"And that nuy attempt by Congress
on any pretext whatever;"
That is, upon tho "pretext" of tho
rebellion, if you please,
"to deprive any State of this light, or
interfere with its exercise, is a ilagrant
usurpation of power which can find no
warrant in tho Constitution: and, if
sanctioned by tho peppje. will subvert
our form ol Ooverument. '
They declaro that tho interference of
Congress wjth sutlrago in Mates that
havo been in rebellion, though tiatin
tcrferenco may bo absolutely necessary,
as, wo havo found it, to the reconstruc
tion of the States, is unconstitutional,
and that o justificaton can bo found
for it, and that t will subvert our
form of government.
Mr. Howard. Koad tho rest of it.
Mr. Morton Yes, sir; I will read
tho balance of it:
"And can only end in a single cen
tralized and consolidated Government,

la wliioh the popernto oxisttnoo ,of tho
Statt'f will lw .entirely absorbed, fttul
an unqualified ilccpotiant 1J establish
ed in placo o( a Federal Union t( co-
equal States, and that wo regard the
reconstruction nets (so called) of Con
gross as such aro usurpations and un
constitutional, revolutionary nnd voiu.,k
This convention has called upon tho
reb'cla of tho South to regard thesft
governments organized by authority
of acts of Congress by the peoplo of
those States as usurpations, unconsti
tutional and void, and has thereby In
vited them again to insurrection and
rebellion. That is what the resolution
means. That is where tho Demo
cratic party bn;i placed Ucll nnd, ,its
candidate, that there shall bo no acqui
escence in tho action of Coflgrcss, but
that continued insistence is and shall
bo their policy. They havu replied to
General Grant uy saying, "thoro snail
bo no pence, but tho war shall bu re
liowed." Then! can bo no other noliov
for tliat party unless it acquiesce. If1
it does not accept these reconstruction
acts, thoro can bo no policy but that
of lesistcnco and n renewal ot tho war.
They declare theso reconstruction acts
to bo unconstitutional nnd void. Do
ing void, nobody is bound to regard
them; they have no authority over any
ono toicoorco or to punish t and may bo
resisted by any ono witli impunity.
That is not tholangiiago of this 'reso
lution, but it is the subnatico and tho
meaning of it; nud in consequence of
this it received the endorsement and
tho aprobation of tho hundreds ot reb
els who were in that convention (torn
the South, men who organized thu reb
el government, and organised and
led tho rebel ttrmles in battle. Thl,
then, is thu issue, a continuance of thu
war: a renewal of tho rebellion: be
cause it is either ot that, or It is sun
mission and acqtiiescenco to what has
Hut, .Mr. President, we aro not left
to grope for tho meaning of this con
vention ; wo are not left even to seek
lor it by infereilcc. Wo havo n letter
of (Iviicnil PrancisP. Illalr, written, I
bvlievt', less than ono week ago, and
this letter has been endorsed by that
convention this allenioon by his nomi
nation ns their coudidato for tho Vice
Presidency. At least I am Informed
that ho has been nominated.
Mr. Pomcroy. Let us havo tho let
ter read. I want to hear it.
Mr. Morton- It is ns much a part
of this platform as if it was incorpora
ted in it, for the ink was hardly dry
be lore it was endorsed by his nomina
tion. I ask tho Secretary to read tho
clatioo of this letter that I havo mark
Mr. Conkling, Mr. I'omeroy, and
others. Let him read the whole letter,
so that it can go into tho Globe.
.Mr. -Morton, i will iihk mo secre
tary to lead tho whole letter, chpec
ialfy that which is distinctly marked.
Several Senators. Let us havo the
Tho I'recident pro tempore. The
letter will bo read.
The Chief Clerk read as follows:
" W'Asin.Nmo.v, Juno 30, 1808.
"DkakColo.vkl; In reply to your
inquiries I beg lcavo to say that I leave
to you to determine, on consultation
with my friends Ironi Missouri, wheth
er my namo shall bu presented to the
Democratic convention, and to Mibmit
the following, as what I consider the
real and only issuo in this content:
"Tho reconstruction policy of tho
Iladicals will be complete beforo tho
next election ; tho Stntcs so long ex
cluded will havo been admitted; ne
gro suffiage established and tho carpet
baggers installed in their seats
in both branches of Congress.
Tliero is no possibility of changing
tho political character of tho Sen
ate, even if tho Democrats hhould elect
their President and a majority of tho
popular branch of Congicss. Wo can
not, therefore, undo tho Itadical plan
of reconstruction by Congressional no
tion; 1110 ncnaio will coiiwimu a oar
to its repeal. Must wo submit to it?
How can it bo ocitluown? It can
only ho overthrown by tho authority of
tho Incentive, who Is hWorn lo main
tain tho Constitution, and who will to
do ids duty if lie allows thn Coustitiit
tioit to polish under a series of Congresi
sioual enactments which aro iu palpa
bio violation of its fundamental princi
ples. " If tho President elected by tho De
mocracy oiilorocs or permits otnors to
enforce theso reconstruction nets, tho
Hadicals by tho accession of twenty
etiurloiiB Senators arid fifty Represen
tatives will control both branches of
Congress, and his Administration wjll
be as powerless as tho" present- ono of
''Tliero is but ono way to restore
tho Government and tho Constitution,
and that is for t,ho Ppdlent elect to
declaro ll(Cso acts null and void, com
pel tho army to undo its usurpations
at tho South, disperso tho carpet-bag
State governments, allow tho whlto
people to reorganize tlicir own govern

sentatives. Tho Houso of Represent
atlves will contain a majority of Demo
crats front the, North, anil they will ad
init tlio Henresentatives elected by the
whito people of tho Sulh, and with
tho cooperation of tho President it will
not bo uitlloult to compel tho Senate
I to submit oneo moro to tho obligations
of the Constitution. It will not be
nblo to withstand thu public judge
ment, If distinctly invoked mid clearly
expressed on this fundamental Nsiie,
niul it is tho suru way to avoid nil fu

"i repeat that tins ' tho real and
only question which wo should allow

"Your friend, Piianu P. Hunt.
"CI.ONi:i, JAMI'S 0. llltOAUIIKAII."
Mr. President, that Is thu Democrat
lo platforlu. General Illalr, whatever
you may say ot him, is a bold, outspo
ken man, ttud bo spoku tho sentiments
of that Con volition. Hu says, "upon
theso sentiments I want to stand beloie
tlio convention;" and upon thoo sen
timents ho was nominated. Therefore,
I sav that thu language of tho Demo
cratic convention at New York lo the
whole country i, war; resistance by
forcu of arms to Congieslonal legisla
tion; thu overthrow by foico ol nrmsol
tlio governments that havu been erected
lu tno rebel Stntcs under tho lawn iii
aeled by Congress; the continuance ol
this rebellion; continuance of this strug
gle, in it somewhat dillireut form, but
still thu samu r-t niggle, contending for
tho same principle. It Is now announc
ed formally, not nt -Montgomery, not
at Richmond, but at Now York. The
country need not bo nt any lots to un
dcitund tho character of tho contest
upon which wo aro entering. It Ik
not one ol poaeo and acquiescence, ol
consolidation whereby tho ravages ( f
war may bo repaired; but it is a new
declaration ol war, a new announce
incut of the rebellion under Minieuliat
diUeient circumstances, but under cir
cumstances formidable, dangerous and
solemn. I.ct thu country look thu
struggle in thu face.
General Illalr has said truly that nil
that Is said about greenbacks ami
bonds nud questions of lluaiico is mere
nonsense. Thu great Issue Is tho ques
tion of overturning tho new Statu Gov
ernments by force, thu restoration ol
thu power ol tho rebels, or as they call
it tho white moil's government in those
States: and all tho rest Is leather mid
prunella. Wo nwo a debtol gratitude
to General Illalr for his frankness.
Tliero need bu no deception prantieed
now. and there ran bo none. There
can ho no other Ustio presented sub
fituutially to us but that of tho future
peace ol this coiiutiy. II Seymour
shall bo elected upon tout platform, he
stands pledged to iimi tbo army of the
United States for tho purposo of over
turning tho governments that have
been established III tho South by the
voice ot tho whole people, and by that
army to placo thu power back again
Into tho uaiiils of tho rebels. They
wcro tin 'to with him iu that convention.
Thoy havo given to film their counsel,
Thoy havo endorsed .Mr. Seymour, and
tho convention and all havo endorsed
General I'Vaucls 1. Illalr.
I know that wo shall bo told in tho
Northwest that thoy Intend to havo
thu samp currency for tho Government
and thu people, for the bondholder and
thu laborer. They will proclaim taxa
tion of tho bonds us tho great issuo up
on which they expect to gut vole;
but that will all bu a deception." The
great issiiu underlying thu wholo con
test, and Wo havo tho solemn declara
tion of their4 cnudidato for Vico Presi
dent to that oil'ect, will bo thu renewal
of the, war. to overturn tho Statu gov
ernments that havo just been establish
ed under tho acts of Congress. Gen

party of a great deal of labor. Hu hits

During his term as Governor of Now
