The Daily Dispatch: December 23, 1865., [Electronic resource], Greeley makes a motion to admit the Southern members. (search)
Greeley makes a motion to admit the Southern members. --You who don't like all the views and acts of President Johnson, let us know what you propose to gain for black suffrage, and how you mean to secure it by breaking with the President. Admit that we shall not get on so fast as we might wish in his company, show us how we are to get on faster by making him our enemy. Bear in mind that we do not ask nor expect Congress to do whatever the President may propose — nothing of the kind. Congress has the same right to dictate to him that he has to dictate to Congress — that is none at all. But we cannot find fault with him for expressing his own views frankly — that being our own way — and asking Congress to consider them; just as we thought Congress had a perfect right to pass the Stevens resolve on the first day of its session before hearing from the President. Let the White House and the Capitol each speak its mind; let the two utterances be compared and weighed; let us s

thews, in Sidney. Mrs. Ould and her husband were there keeping house in a building owned by Mr. A. J. Ford. Mr. Marmaduke Johnson, counsel for the defence, here asked that Mrs. Matthews be subpœned. Mrs. Ould had brought her in from the countliceman that Mrs. Ould was brought there at her own request. I then asked her why she shot me. Cross-examined by Mr. Johnson.--There was no improper intimacy between us while boarding at Mrs. Matthews. After she went to live on Foushee streetsome eighty or ninety dollars, which I had previously given her. This money was taken from the drawer in the bar. Mr. Johnson here presented a receipt for one month's rent of the house, given in the name of Mrs. Ould. Meade stated that she At this point, Mr. Saunders adjourned the further investigation of the case until to-day at 11 o'clock. Witnesses were recognized to appear. Marmaduke Johnson, Esq., and Colonel D. G. McIntosh are the counsel in this most extraordinary case.
stitution which abolishes slavery. It was found that twenty-seven States had voted, making the constitutional two-thirds. Among those that had voted, and that were counted in order to make up the constitutional number, were the names of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. Without them there would not have been the required number. The inclusion of these States among the number of those which had voted for abolition affords a proof that Mr. Seward, as well as Mr. Johnson, regards them still as States, acting, as States always do in their transactions with the General Government, through their Legislatures. The formal declaration of Congress that these States were States, could not have settled their status more decidedly than the action — or rather the failure to act on that occasion — by Congress did. Mr. Stevens had not a word to throw to a dog. His radical comrades were perfectly mum. The action of the five Southern States, deciding the question, was

Many Senators and Representatives, in anticipation of the temporary adjournment, left last evening and this morning for their several homes, making the attendance quite thin in both branches to-day. Many leave this afternoon also, and with other parties going home for the holidays, makes it dull here. What the President Thinks of Reconstruction. Hon. Hiram McCulloch called on President Johnson a day or two since, and had a free and frank conversation with him. The President expressed his full confidence in being able to restore the entire union of the States to the satisfaction of all rational and reasonable men without any further humiliation of the people of the South. Residence of Secretary Welles robbed. Some days since the hall of the residence of Hon. Secretary Welles, on H street north, opposite Lafayette square, was entered by thieves and robbed of four valu
If it is imagined by any Congressmen who do not agree with the reconstruction policy of President Johnson that anything is to be gained on their side by hard words against him, they will soon disc authors. If Senator Sumner deems it his duty to oppose the reconstruction methods of President Johnson, he has the clear right to do so, and if he would confine himself to fair argument, would espectfully. But he has damned his cause at the outset in charging misrepresentation upon President Johnson in the message sent to the Senate respecting the condition and feeling of the South. If hite-wash and deceive, he affronts the good sense and the decent sentiments of the people. President Johnson was sustained in all he said by the report of Lieutenant-General Grant; but his bare repres may be in him, he should avoid abusing those who do not see as he does. At all events, he should make an exception of one so high in official position and public estimation as President Johnson.
