Chicago, April 19. President Joltnson, in
reply to a serenade from tbe soldiers and
sailors, last ereuingj said: We are involved
in tbe most cr.ticul and trying struggles tbut
hiive occurred since this Government came
into existence. Tbe Government hits, an
other trial still to gov through Unit is to give
evidence to the uutioos of tbe enrtli nnd its
unu (;ii-iaciis mm it. mis power cuuugu iu nut
' down trenofiery nt home and treason within
its own borders. Ubeers. We have com
menced tuat stiugglo, and 1 trust in (lod we
will puss througn it successfu.lv. The or.
gauized And combined powers that recently
stood arrayed against us are disbanded and
driven from the ti Id. but it docs not follow
; that tliereare no enemies aiid traitors against
". our prest-nt form of Government und our in
stitutions. I st iod in the Sena e of the
united State denying thk doctrine of seces
sion; I think I have given some evidence
, that I have becu sincere and in varuest, and
;,' pack of Blunderers ure snapping at ray beels.
', l.'hecrs. Why is it they array themselves
itgainsc me f is it Because I stand ou tbe
., side of the people? and when I say the peo
ple I include soldiers nnd suitors. Cheers
Why is it they arrayed in traducing and vil
lif'ying and calumniating me? Where were
uuy uuriug iiie reoeuiuu r invoice "ai
homo in bed." In the Senate I rased my
voice ngninst it, nnd when it was believed
it would be to the interest of the nation to
legist in put'ing down the rebellion did I
not leave my place in tho Senate, a place of
emolumum an i distinction, and takc'iny po
.siiion whoie the enemy could be ro.ichcd,
nnd' where men's lives were in danger;
cheers while I win opposed personally and
publicly hy some of my prcseut traducers
Hnd, calumniators, who were far removed
from tho foe and who were enjoying ease
nnd comfort. But I caro not for them. I
, cure not that slander, the foul wbelp of sin,
hu3 been let loose against me. 1 care not
lor all that ; nnd let me tell you here to day,
that although pielty well advanced in life, I
fuel that I shall survive I0113 enough to live
down the whole pack of traducers nnd slan
derers. fApnlim-e 1 Thcv have turned tho
whole pack loose to lower me in your esti
, niation. A voice 1 tby onnot do that."
blanch?, Tray, Sweetheart, and all the liitle
dogs come along, snapping at my heels, but
1 heed tbein not. Cheers. The American
people, citizens, soldiers, and Siilors, Know
that from my advent into public lii'o to ttie
pre-ent liour, I have tilways stand, the un
yielding and unwavering de'eiider of their
. rights and interests. When rebellion in
Massachusetts was put down, did that put
Massachusetts out of tbe Union and destroy
t!iu State? When rebellion in Pennsylvania
was put down, did that destroy the State
nod put it out of the Onion ? So when the
recent great rebellion was clo.-ed, those
; Mates constituting a part or tbe glorious
Union wero restored.
'.. A great deal was done in Tennessee under
my predecessor. Wo commenced the work
together: we succeeded before I assumed my
1 . present position iu restoring the troubles
vriiicu uuu c&ioieu outweeu lunnessee unl
MIU IKt ui .u J mull null uug CAVCjJUUU,
and that was representation. I curuo to
s' Washington under extraordinary circum
tttaucea and succeeded to tbe Presidency.
hat then I Uongrcss had adjourned with
nut presenting any plan. I then procced"d,
11s 1 have beeu dome in my own State, to re
store the other S ates. We found the people
liad no courts, ana we said to the Judges
. District Attorneys and Marshals : Go down
and hold your courts ; the peoplo need that
iIir tribunals of iiiRtir.H ahull hn nnonprl
Was that wrong t The courts were opened.
We looked abo.:t nnd saw that tho people
down there had no mails., Thoy bail becu
interrupted and cnt o(F by the rebellion.
Wo said to the Postmaster (iunernl. let the
peoplo have mail facilities and then they
will begin to understand that we nil feel and
think that we are one people.. We looked
about and saw that there was a blockade,
that the custom houses wero closed, and we
snid let tlio doors of the custom lvuscs be
opened and remove tho blockade. Let trado
. nnd commerce bo restored, and it was done
Wo thus traveled, opening custom-houses,
restoring mall, nnd re establishing all tbe
, customs that had been inieirupted by the
rebellion. . Was there anything hero that
was not authorised by the constitution nnd
. justified by tho great necessities of the case?
.Now what remains to be doner it is to a a
. niit tbeir repiesentatives. Cheers. When
tionul and law-abiding scn-e as we intended
at the beginning of (he Government, ail that
is needed Is fur tho Houses respectively in
determine tbe question. 11 'it some one will
say, a traitor might come. in. The nnswer
to that is, that each House must be the
judge; and when traitors present themselves
t-anuot either Houfe know that they are
' traitors? Cannot they kick them out doors
and lend them back, saying to the peopl
who sent them, you must sand loyal men
Cheers, a4 vclce, that's logic Whit Is
the difficulty about that? None. Cheers.
II' a traitor presents himSelf to either House,
cannot that House say no, you cannot bead
mitted into eiiher body; go back; we will not
deny your people representation, but they
must send us loyal representatives. Cheers j
When the State does send loyal representa
tives ran you have any better loyalty?
Whilo I have been contending against trai
tors, treason, secession and dissolution of
the Union, I have been at the same time
contending against the consolidation of
power hero. , I think that the consolidation
of power here is equally dangerous with the
separation of tbe States. That one would
not be better used and might run into an
archy, while, tbe other would concentrate
nnd email even monarchy. But there is
an idea nbroud that one man can be a des
pot, that ono man can bo an usurper, but
tlmt one or two hundred men cannot. Mr.
Jefferson, the aposile of liberty, tells us,
and so does common sense, thai despotism
can bn exercised hr iiihiit more rigorously
than by one. What power has your Presi
dent? What can he do? What can he
originate? Why, they any be exorcises the
veto power. What is the veto power? A
voice a vote 10 put down the nigger,
Laughter. Who is President? Voices
Andy Johnson. Is be nut elecird by the
people? The President is nothing more than
the Tribune of the people the office a Tri
bune in cbarncier. In olden times when
the Roman Semite was encroaching on the
people's rights, and putting' its heels ot
power on the necks of the people, the peo
pie choso a Tribuno and placed Lira nt the
door of the Senate, so that when that power
ventured such an act he was clothed wilh
power to say." Vein; I forbid." Your Pres
ident now is the Tribune of bis people. I
thank God, nnd intend lu assert the power
which the people have placed in 111 V bauds.
