The Daily Dispatch: December 21, 1865., [Electronic resource], President's message.--General Grant's report. (search)
The President's message and General Grant's report. These documents will be found in our paper this morning, and will give much satisfaction to Southern readers. The President's policy of restoring the Southern States to equal rights with the Northern, under the Constitution, and, in the language of Mr. Seward, "remitting them to the constitutional authorities chosen by their own people," is the only efficient means of re-establishing harmony and insuring the rights and prosperity of the whole Union. It was not surprising that the calm and truthful communication of the President should excite Mr. Sumner's malignity, and that he should style it a "white-washing" message. Had the President recited as true the falsehoods relative to Southern cruelties to the blacks, and Southern disloyalty, which have been invented and circulated to help on the agitation against restoration, and for the degradation of the Southern white man, it would have been a marvelous proper document for
The French to leave Mexico. New York, December 19. --The Washington special correspondent of the Post states that while the President was preparing his message, the French Minister emphatically stated that the Emperor would much regret any expression in the message which would make it impossible to recede from his Mexican scheme without humiliation. The French Minister also assured Mr. Seward that the French troops would be withdrawn from Mexico in a little while, and asked for patience on the part of our Government.

Secretary Stanton. A dispatch from Washington to the Philadelphia Ledger says that Secretary Stanton h
From Washington. Washington, December 20. --The decree of Maximilian of September last having been submitted to Attorney-General Speed, that officer pronounced the opinion that it makes the working men in Mexico slaves. Secretary Seward enclosed this opinion to our Minister at Paris, who, at Mr. Seward's request, called the attention of the French Government to the subject, but to which no response has been received. The War Department has ordered a reduction of the white troops Mr. Seward's request, called the attention of the French Government to the subject, but to which no response has been received. The War Department has ordered a reduction of the white troops in Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi to seven thousand men. The Secretary of the Treasury officially acknowledges that he has appointed officers who have not subscribed to the test oath, having failed to obtain those who could be relied on for the performance of the revenue duties required, as nearly every man in the South fit for a revenue officer was at the same time either engaged in hostilities against the Government or holding State or Confederate offices, either willingly or unwillingl
