President's message.-- '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.

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

We have an instinctive aversion to the arts of diplo concession discreditable to the dignity of the nation.
"We perform a friendly office for Mr. Seward when we admonish him that this people will not be trifled with in the Mexican business.
