This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the

to communicate copies of all papers, entries, indorsements, and other docu- 
mentary evidence in relation to any proceeding in connection with such applica- 
tion; and that he also inform this house whether, since the adjournment at 
Raleigh, North Carolina, on the 30th of March last, of the last board or court 
of inquiry convened to investigate the facts attending the hanging of a number 
of United States soldiers for alleged desertion from the rebel army, any further 
measures have been taken to bring the said Pickett or other perpetrators of that 
crime to punishment. 

Mr. Schenck moved that the vote last taken be reconsidered, and also moved 
that the motion to reconsider be laid on the table ; which latter motion was 
agreed to. 

Mr. McKee submitted the following resolution, viz : 

Resolved, That the President be requested to communicate to this house, if 
in his opinion not incompatible with the public interest, any con-espondence or 
other information in the possession of the government relative to the present 
condition of affairs in our sister republic of Mexico, and specially any letters of 
the minister at Washington. 

The same having been read, and objection being made to its consideration 
this day, 

Mr. McKee moved that the rules be suspended so as to enable the House to 
consider the same at this time ; which motion was disagreed to, two-thirds not 
voting in favor thereof. 

The resolution was then laid over one day under the rule. 

Mr. Julian, on leave, introduced a bill (H. R. 839) amendatory of the pre- 



12 JOURNAL OF THE [Dec. 3, 18G6. 

cmption laws of the United States, and for other purposes ; which was read a 
first and second time and referred to the Committee on Public Lands. 

Mr. Chester D. Hubbard, on leave, introduced a bill (H. R. 838) for the relief 
of the members of Captain Robert Hamilton's Independent Company of Exempts 
of West Virginia volunteers ; which was read a first and second time and re- 
ferred to the Committee on Military Affairs. 

Mr. Farnsworth moved, at 1 o'clock and 40 minutes p. in., that the House 
adjourn ; which^motion was disagi-eed to. 

Notices were given, under the rule, for leave to introduce bills, as follows, viz : 

By Mr. Spalding : A bill making provision for a navy yard and naval station 
for the upper lakes, at Cleveland, Ohio ; 

Also, a bill for the relief of R. C. Spalding, paymaster in the United States 
navy ; 

Also, a bill for the protection of the piers, breakwaters and harbor improve- 
ments of the United States. 

By Mr. Julian : A bill to amend and make general the pre-emption laws of 
the United States ; 

Also, a bill providing civil governments for the districts lately in rebellion 
against the United States, and for the restoration of said districts to their for- 
feited rights as States of the Union; 

Also, a bill to equalize the bounties of soldiers who served in the late war for 
the Union. 

By Mr. James M. Ashley: A bill to enable loyal citizens residing in the dis- 
tricts of country recently in rebellion against the United States to organize a 
constitutional State in each of the States whose governments were usurped or 
overthrown, and for other purposes ; 

Also, a bill for the admission of Nebraska and Colorado into the Union as 
States on an equal footing with the original States ; 

Also, a bill to change the boundary of the Territory of Montana, and for 
other purposes. 

By Mr. Kelley : A bill to create and organize a department to be called the 
Department of Internal Revenue. 

By Mr. William Lawrence: A bill to reduce the mileage of members of 
Congress; 

Also, a bill to repeal so much of the act of Congress approved July 28, 1866, 
as increases the compensation of senators, representatives and delegates in 
Congress. 

A message was received from the President of the United States, by Mr. 
Johnson, his private secretary. 

The Speaker having, by unanimous consent, laid the same before tl«e House, 

Mr. Stevens moved that its reading be postponed until to morrow; which 
motion was disagreed to. 

Mr. Eggleston moved that the House take a recess until 3 o'clock p. m.; 
which motion was disagreed to. 

The annual message of the President of the United States was then read, 
and is as follows, viz : 

FcUow-cltizens of the Senate and House of Representatives : 

After a brief interval the Congress of the United States resumes its annual 
legislative labors. An all-wise and merciful Providence has abated the pesti- 
lence which visited our shores, leaving its calamitous traces up n some portions 
of our country. Peace, order, tranquillity, and civil authority have been formally 
declared to exist throughout the whole of the United States. In all of the 
States civil authority has superseded the coercion of arms, and the people, by 
their voluntary action, are maintaining their governments in full activity and 
complete operation The enforcement of the laws is no longer "obstructed in

any State by combinations too powerful to be suppressed by the ordinary course 
of judicial proceeding's:" and the animosities engendered by the war are rapidly 
yielding to the beneficent influences of our free institutions, and to the kindly 
effects of unrestricted social and commercial intercourse. An entire restoration 
of fraternal feeling must be the earnest wish of every patriotic heart ; and we 
will have accomplished our grandest national achievement when, forgetting the 
sad events of the past, and remembering only their instructive lessons, we resume 
our onward career as a free, prosperous, and united people. 

In my message of the 4th of December, 1865, Congress was informed of the 
measures which had been instituted by the Executive with a view to the gradual 
restoration of the States in which the insurrection occurred to their relations with 
the general government. Provisional governors had been appointed, conventions 
called, governors elected, legislatures assembled, and senators and representa- 
tives chosen to the Congress of the United States. Courts had been opened for 
the enforcement of laws long in abeyance. The blockade had been removed, 
custom-houses re-established, and the internal revenue laws put in force, in order 
that the people might contribute to the national income. Postal operations had been 
renewed, and efforts were being made to restore them to their former condition 
of efficiency. The States themselves had been asked to take part in the high 
function of amending the Constitution, and of thus sanctioning the extinction of 
African slavery as one of the legitimate results of our internecine struggle. 

Having progressed thus far, the Executive department found that it had ac- 
complished nearly all that was within the scope of its constitutional authority. 
One thing, however, yet remained to be done before the work of restoration 
could be completed, and that was the admission to Congress of loyal senators 
and representatives from the States whose people had rebelled against the 
lawful authority of the general government. This question devolved upon the 
respective houses, which, by the Constitution, are made the judges of the elec- 
tions, returns, and qualifications of their own members ; and its consideration at 
once engaged the attention of Congress. 

In the mean time the Executive department — no other plan having been pro- 
posed by Congress— -continued its efforts to perfect, as far as was practicaole, 
the restoration of the proper relations between the citizens of the respective 
States, the States, and the federal government, extending, from time to time, as 
the public interests seemed to require, the judicial, revenue, and postal systems 
of the country. With the advice and consent of the Senate, the necessary 
officers were appointed, and appropriations made by Congress for the payment 
of their salaries. The proposition to amend the federal Constitution, so as to 
prevent the existence of slavery within the United States or any place subject 
to their jurisdiction, was ratified by the requisite number of States; and on the 
18th day of December, 186/5, it was officially declared to have become valid as a 
part of the Constitution of the United States. All of the States in which the 
insurrection had existed promptly amended their constitutions, so as to make them 
conform to the great change thus effected in the organic law of the land ; declared 
null and void all ordinances and laws of secession ; repudiated all pretended debts 
and obligations created for the revolutionary purposes of the insurrection ; and 
proceeded, in good faith, to the enactment of measures for the protection and 
amelioration of the condition of the colored race. Congress, however, yet 
hesitated to admit any of these States to representation ; and it was not until 
towards the close of the eighth month of the session that an exception was made 
in favor of Tennessee, by the admission of her senators and representatives. 

I deem it a subject of profound regret that Congress has thus far failed to ad- 
mit to seats loyal senators and representatives from the other States, whose in- 
habitants, with those of Tennessee, had engaged in the rebellion. Ten States — 
more than one-fourth of the whole number — remain without representation ; the 
seats of fifty members in the House of Representatives and of twenty members 



14 JOURNAL OF THE [Dec. 3, 1S66. 

in the Senate are yet vacant — not by their own consent, not by a failure of elec- 
tion, but by the refusal of Congress to accept their credentials. Their admission, 
it is believed, would have accomplished much towards the renewal and strength- 
ening of our relations as one people, and removed serious cause for discontent 
on the part of the inhabitants of those States. It would have accorded with the 
great principle enunciated in the declaration of American independence, that 
no people ought to bear the burden of taxation, and yet be denied the right 
of representation. It would have been in consonance with the express provi- 
sions of the Constitution, that " each State shall have at least one Representa- 
tive," and ** that no State, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal 
suffrage in the Senate." These provisions were intended to secure to every 
State, and to the people of every State, the right of representation in each house 
of Congress ; and so important was it deemed by the framors of the Constitution 
that the equality of the States in the Senate should be preberved, that not even 
by an amendment of the Constitution can any State, without its consent, be de- 
nied a voice in that branch of the national legislature. 

It is true, it has been assumed that the existence of the States was termi- 
nated by the rebellious acts of their inhabitants, and that the insurrection having 
been suppressed, they were thenceforward to be considered merely as conquered 
territories. The legislative, executive, and judicial departments of the govern- 
ment have, however, with great distinctness and uniform consistency, refused to 
sanction an assumption so incompatible with the nature of our republican system 
and with the professed objects of the war. Throughout the recent legislation of 
Congress the undeniable fact makes itself apparent, that these ten political 
communities are nothing less than States of this Union. At the very commence- 
ment of the rebellion each house declared, with a unanimity as remarkable as 
it was significant, that the war was not " waged, upon our part, in any spirit of 
oppression, nor for any purpose of conquest or subjugation, nor purpose of over- 
throwing or interfering with the rights or established institutions of those States, 
but to defend and maintain the supremacy of the Constitution and all laws made 
in pursuance thereof, and to preserve the Union, with all the dignity, equality, 
aid rights of the several States unimpaired ; and that as soon as these objects" 
W( re " accomplished the war ought to cease." In some instances senators were 
pe. mitted to continue their legislative functions, while in other instances repre- 
scL atives were elected and admitted to seats after their States had formally de- 
clared their right to withdraw from the Union, and were endeavoring to main- 
tain that right by force of arms. All of the States whose people were in 
insurrection, as States, were included in the apportionment of the direct 
tax of twenty millions of dollars annually laid upon the United States 
by the act approved 5th August, 1861. Congress, by the act of March 4, 
1862, and by the apportionment of representation thereunder, also recog- 
nized their presence as States in the Union ; and they have, for judicial 
purposes, been divided into districts, as States alone can be divided. The same 
recognition appears in the recent legislation in reference to Tennessee, which 
evidently rests upon the fact that the functions of the State were not destroyed 
by the rebellion, nut merely suspended; and that principle, is of course, applica- 
ble to those States which, like Tennessee, attempted to renounce their places in 
the Union. 

The action of the Executive department of the government upon this subject 
has been eaually definite a ad uniform, and the purpose of the war was specifi- 
cally stated in the proclamation issued by my predecessor on the 22d day of 
September, 1862. It was then solemnly proclaimed and declared that "here- 
after, as heretofore, the war will be prosecuted for the object of practically 
restoring the constitutional relation between the United States and each of the 
States and the people thereof, in which States that relation is or may be sus- 
pended or disturbed." 



Dec, 3, 1866.] HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. 15 

The recognition of the States by the judicial department of the government 
has also been clear and conclusive in all proceedings affecting them as States, 
had in the Supreme, circuit, and district courts. 

lu the admission of senators and representatives from any and all of the 
States there can be no just ground of apprehension that persons who are dis- 
loyal will be clothed with the powers of legislation, for this could not happen 
when the Constitution and the laws are enforced by a vigilant and faithful Con- 
gress. Each house is made the "judge of the elections, returns, and qualifica- 
tions of its own members," and may, ** with the concurrence of two-thirds, expel 
a member." When a senator or representative presents his certificate of election, 
he may at once be admitted or rejected ; or, should there be any question as to 
his eligibility, hU credentials may be referred for investigation to the appropriate 
committee. If admitted to a seat, it must be upon evidence satisfactory to the 
house of which he thus becomes a member that he possesses the requisite con- 
stitutional and legal qualifications. If refused admission as a member for want 
of due allegiance to the government, and returned to his constituents, they are 
admonished that none but persons loyal to the United States will be allowed a 
voice iu the legislative councils of the nation, and the political power and moral 
influence of Congress are thus effectively exerted in the interests of loyalty to 
the government and fidelity to the Union. Upon this question, so vitally affect- 
ing the restoration of the Union and the permanency of our present form of gov- 
ernment, my convictions, heretofore expressed, have undergone no change ; but, 
on the contrary, their correctness has been confirmed by reflection and time. If 
the admission of loyal members to seats in the respective houses of Congress 
was wise and expedient a year ago, it is no less wise and expedient now. If 
this anomalous condition is right now — if, in the exact condition of these States 
at the present time, it is lawful to exclude them from representation — I do not see 
that the question will be changed by the efflux of time. Ten years hence, if 
these States remain as they are, the right of representation will be no stronger — 
the right of exclusion will be no weaker. 

The Constitution of the United States makes it the duty of the President to 
recommend to the consideration of Congress " such measures as he shall judge 
necessary or expedient." I know of no measure more imperatively demanded 
by every consideration of national interest, sound policy, and equal justice than 
the admission of loyal members from the now unrepresented States. This would 
consummate the work of restoration, and exert a most salutary influence in the 
re establishment of peace, harmony, and fraternal feeling. It would tend greatly 
to renew the confidence of the American people in the vigor and stability of their 
institntions. It would bind us more closely together as a nation, and enable 
us to show to the world the inherent and recuperative power of a government 
founded upon the will of the people, and establisned upon the principles of liberty, 
justice, and intelligence. Our increased strength and enhanced prosperity would 
irrefragably demonstrate the fallacy of the arguments against free institutions 
drawn from our recent national disorders by the enemies of republican govern- 
ment. The admission of loyal members from the States now excluded from 
Congress, by allaying doubt and apprehension, would turn capital, now awaiting 
an opportunity for investment, into the channels of trade and industry. It would 
alleviate the presentr troubled condition of those States, and, by inducing emi- 
gration, aid in the settlement of fertile regions now uncultivated, and lead to an 
increased production of those staples which have added so greatly to the wealth 
of the nation and commerce of the world. New fields of enterprise would be 
opened to our progressive people, and soon the devastations of war would be re- 
paired, and all traces of our domestic differences effaced from the minds of our 
countrymen. 

In our efforts to preserve " the unity of government which constitutes us one 
people," by restoring the States to the condition which they held prior to the 



16 JOURNAL OF THE [Dec. 3, 1866. 

rebellion, we should be cautious, lest, having rescued our nation from perils of 
threatened disintegration, we resort to consolidation, and in the end absolute des- 
potism, as a remedy for the recurrence of similar troubles. The war having 
terminated, and with it all occasion for the exercise of powers of doubtful con- 
stitutionality, we should hasten to bring legislation within the boundaries pre- 
scribed by the Constitution, and to return to the ancient landmarks established 
by our fathers for the guidance of succeeding generations. " The Constitution 
which at any time exists, until changed by an explicit and authentic act of the 
whole people, is sacredly obligatory upon all.** ** If, in the opinion of the peo- 
ple, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be, in any 
particular, wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way in which the 
Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation ; for** *'it 
is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed.*' Wash- 
ington spoke these words to his countrymen, when, followed by their love 
and gratitude, he voluntarily retired from the can s of public life. " To 
keep in all things within the pale of our constitutional powers, and cherish 
the federal Union as the only rock of safety," were prescribed by Jeffer- 
son as rules of action to endear to his " countrymen the true principles of 
their Constitution, and promote a union of sentiment and action equally au- 
Bpicious to their happiness and safety.** Jackson held that the action of the 
general goveniment should always be strictly confined to the sphere of its ap- 
propriate duties, and justly and forcibly urged that our government is not to be 
maintained nor our tlnion preserved "by invasions of the rights and powers 
of the several States. In thus attempting to make our general government 
strong, we make it weak. Its true strength consists in leaving individuals and 
States as much as possible to themselves; in making itself felt, not in its power, 
but in its beneficence ; not in its control, but in its protection ; not in binding 
the States more closely to the centre, but leaving each to move unobstructed in 
its proper constitutional orbit.** These p.re the teachings of men whose deeds 
and services have made them illustrious, and who, long since withdrawn from 
the scenes of life, have left to their country the rich legacy of their example, 
their wisdom, and their patriotism. Drawing fresh inspiration from their lessons, 
let us emulate them in love of country and respect for the Constitution and the 
laws. 

The report of the Secretary of the Treasury affords much information re- 
specting the revenue and commerce of the country. His views upon the cur- 
rency, and with reference to a proper adjustment of our revenue system, inter- 
nal as well as imf)ost, are commended to the careful consideration of Congress. 
In my last annual message I expressed my general views upon these subjects. I 
need now only call attention to the necessity of carrying into every department 
of the government a system of rigid accountability, thorough retrenchment, and 
wise economy. With no exceptional nor unusual expenditures, the oppressive 
burdens of taxation can be lessened by such a modification of our revenue laws 
as will be consistent with the public faith and the legitimate and necessary 
wants of the government. 

The report presents a much more satisfactory condition of our finances than 
one year ago the most sanguine could have anticipated. During the fiscal year 
ending the 30th June, 1865, the last year of the war, the public debt was in- 
increased $941,902,537, and on the 31st of October, 1865, it amounted to 
82,740,854,750. On the 31st day of October, 1866, it had been reduced to 
$2,551,310,006, the diminution, during a period of fourteen months, commenc 
ing September 1, 1865, and ending October 31, 1866, having been $206,379,565. 
In the last annual report on the state of the finances it was estimated that dur- 
ing the three quarters of the fiscal year ending the 30th of June last, the debt 
would be increased 8112,194,947. During that period, however, it was re- 
duced $31,196,357, the receipts of tire year having been $89,905,905 more, and 



Dec. 3, 1866.] HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. 17 

tlie expenditures $200,529,235 less than the estimates. Nothing could more 
clearly indicate than these statements the extent and availability of* the national 
resources, and the rapidity and safety with which, under our form of govern- 
ment, great military and naval establishments can be disbanded, and expenses 
reduced from a war to a peace footing. 

During the fiscal year ending June 30, 1866, the receipts were $558,032,620, and 
the expenditures $520,750,940, leaving an available surplus of $37,281,680. It is 
estimated that the receipts for the fiscal year ending the 30th June, 1867, will be 
$475,061,386, and that the expenditures will reach the sum of $316,428,078, 
leaving in the treasury a surplus of $158,633,308. For the fiscal year ending 
June 30, 1868, it is estimated that the receipts will amount to $436,000,000, and 
that the expenditures will be $350,247,641 — showing an excess of $85,752,359 
in favor of the government. These estimated receipts may be diminished by a 
reduction of excise and import duties ; but after all necessary reductions shall 
have been made, the revenue of the present and of following years will doubtless 
be sufficient to cover all legitimate charges upon the treasury, and leave a large 
annual surplus to be applied to the payment of the principal of the debt. There 
seems now to be no good reason why taxes may not be reduced as the country 
advances in population and wealth, and yet the debt be extinguished within the 
next quarter of a century. 

The report of the Secretary of War furnishes valuable and important inform- 
ation in reference to the operations of his department during the past year. 
Few volunteers now remain in the service, and they are being discharged as 
rapidly as they can be replaced by regular troops. The army has been promptly 
paid, carefully provided with medical treatment, well sheltered and subsisted, 
and is to be furnished with breech-loading small-arms. The military strength 
of the nation has been unimpaired by the discharge of volunteers, the disposi- 
tion of unserviceable or perishable stores, and the retrenchment of expenditure. 
Sufficient war material to meet any emergency has been retained, and, from the 
disbanded volunteers standing ready to respond to the national call, large armies 
can be rapidly organized, equipped, and concentrated. Fortifications on the 
cf^ast and frontier have received, or are being prepared for, more powerful arma- 
ments ; lake surveys and harbor and river improvements are in course of 
energetic prosecution. Preparations have been made for the payment of the 
additional bounties authorized during the recent session of Congress, under 
such regulations as will protect the government from fraud, and secure to the 
honorably discharged soldier the well-earned reward of his faithfulness and gal- 
lantry. More than six thousand maimed soldiers have received artificial limbs or 
other surgical appai*atus ; and forty-one national cemeteries, containing the re- 
mains of 104,526 Union soldiers, have already been established. The total 
estimate of military appropriations is $25,205,669. 

It is stated in the report of the Secretary of the Navy that the naval force at 
this time consists of two hundred and seventy-eight vessels, armed with two 
thousand three hundred and fifty -one guns. Of these, one hundred and fifteen 
vessels, carrying one thousand and twenty-nine guns, are in commission, distrib- 
uted chiefly among seven squadrons. The number of men in the service is thir- 
teen thousand six hundred. Great activity and vigilance have been displayed 
by all the squadrons, and their movements have been judiciously and efficiently 
arranged in such manner as would best promote American commerce, and pro- 
tect the rights and interests of our countrymen abroad. The vessels unemployed 
are undergoing repairs, or are laid up until their services may be required. Most 
of tlie iron-clad fleet is at League island, in the vicinity of Philadelphia, a place 
which, until decisive action should be taken by Congress, was selected by 
the Secretary of the Navy as the most eligible location for that class of vessels. 
It is important that a suitable public station should be provided for the iron-clad 
fleet. It is intended that these vessels shall be in proper condition for any 
2 



18 JOURNAL OF THE [Dec. 3, 1866. 

emergency, and it is desirable that the bill accepting League island for naval 
purposes, which passed the House of Representatives at its last session, should 
receive final action at an early period, in order that there may be a suitable pub- 
lic station for this class of vessels, as well as a navy yard of area sufficient for 
the wants of the service on the Delaware river. The naval pension fund 
amounts to $11,750,000, having been increased $2,750,000 during the year. 
The expenditures of the department for the fiscal year ending 30th June last 
were 843,324,526, and the estimates for the coming year amount to $23,568,436. 
Attention is invited to the condition of our seamen, and the importance of legis- 
lative measures for their relief and improvement. The suggestions in behalf of 
this deserving class of our fellow-citizens are earnestly recommended to the 
favorable attention of Congress. 

The report of the Postmaster General presents a most satisfactory condition 
of the postal service, and submits recommendations which deserve the consid- 
eration of Congress. The revenues of the department for the year ending June 
30, 1866, were $14,386,986, and the expenditures $15,352,079, showing an 
excess of the latter of $965,093. In anticipation of this deficiency, however, a 
special appropriation was made by Congress in the act approved July 28, 1866 
Including the standing appropriation of $700,000 for free mail matter, as a 
legitimate portion of the revenues yet remaining unexpended, the actual defi- 
ciency for the past year is only $265,093 — a sum within $51,141 of the amount 
estimated in the annual report of 1864. The decrease of revenue compared with 
the previous year was one and one-fifth per cent., and the increase of expendi- 
tures, owing principally to the enlargement of the mail service in the south, 
was twelve per cent. On the 30th of June last there were in operation six 
thousand nine hundred and thirty mail routes, with an aggregate length of one 
hundred and eighty thousand nine hundred and twenty -one miles, an aggre- 
gate annual transportation of seventy-one million eight hundred and thirty- 
seven thousand nine hundred and fourteen miles, and an aggregate annual 
cost, including all expenditures, of $8,410,184. The length of railroad routes 
is thirty-two thousand and ninety-two miles, and the annual transportation 
thirty million six hundred and nine thousand four hundred and sixty-seven 
miles. The length of steamboat routes is fourteen thousand three hundred and 
forty-six miles, and the annual transportation three million four hundred and 
eleven thousand nine hundred and sixty-two miles. The mail service is rapidly 
increasing throughout the whole country, and its steady extension in the southern 
States indicates their constantly improving condition. The growing importance 
of the foreign service also merits attention. The post office department of 
Great Britain and our own have agreed upon a preliminary basis for anew postal 
convention, which it is believed will prove eminently beneficial to the commer- 
cial interests of the United States, inasmuch as it contemplates a reduction of 
the international letter postage to one-half the existing rates ; a reduction of 
postage with all other countries to and from which correspondence is transmitted 
in the British mail, or in closed mails through the United Kingdom ; the establish- 
ment of uniform and reasonable charges for the sea and terrritorial transit of cor- 
respondence in closed mails ; and an allowance to each post office department 
of the right to use all mail communications established under the authority of 
the other for the despatch of correspondence, either in open or closed mails, on 
the same terms as those applicable to the inhabitants of the country providing 
the means of transmission. 

The report of the Secretary of the Interior exhibits the condition of those 
branches of the public service which are committed to his supervision. During 
the last fiscal year four million six hundred and twenty-nine thousand three 
hundred and twelve acres of public land were disposed of, one million eight hun- 
dred and ninety-two thousand five hundred and sixteen acres of which were en- 
tered under the homestead act. The policy originally adopted relative to the 



Dec. 3, 1866.] HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. 19 

public landji has undergone essential modifications. Immediate revenue, and 
not their rapid settlement, was the cardinal feature of our land system. Long 
experience and earnest discussion have resulted in the conviction that the 
early development of our agricultural resources, and the diffusion of an 
energetic population over our vast territory, are objects of far greater 
importance to the national growth and prosperity than the proceeds of the 
sale of the land to the highest bidder in open market. The pre-emption laws 
confer upon the pioneer who complies with the terms they impose the privilege 
of purchasing a limited portion of " unoffered lands " at the minimum price. 
The homestead enactments relieve the settler from the payment of purchase 
money, and secure him a permanent home, upon the condition of residence for a 
term of years. This liberal policy invites emigration from the Old, and from the 
more crowded portions of the New World. Its propitious results are undoubted, 
and will be more signally manifested when time shall have given to it a wider 
development. 

Congress has made liberal grants of public land to corporations, in aid of the 
construction of railroads and other internal improvements. Should this policy 
hereafter prevail, more stringent provisions will be required to secure a faithful 
application of the fund. The title to the lands should not pass, by patent 
or otherwise, but remain in the government and subject to its control until 
some portion of the road has been actually built. Portions of them might then, 
from time to time, be conveyed to the corporation, but never in a greater ratio to 
the whole quantity embraced by the grant than the completed parts' bear to the 
entire length of the projected improvement. This restriction would not ope- 
rate to the prejudice of any undertaking conceived in good faith and executed 
with reasonable energy, as it is the settled practice to withdraw from market 
the lands falling within the operation of such grants, and thus to exclude the 
inception of a subsequent adverse right. A breach of the conditions which 
Gongi-ess may deem proper to impose should work a forfeiture of claim to the 
lands 80 withdrawn but unconveyed, and of title to the lands conveyed which 
remain unsold. 

Operations on the several lines of the Pacific railroad have been prosecuted 
with unexampled vigor and success. Should no unforeseen causes of delay occur, 
it is confidently anticipated that this great thoroughfare will be completed be- 
fore the expiration of the period designated by Congress. 

During the last fiscal year the amount paid to pensioners, including the ex- 
penses of disbursement, was thirteen million four hundred and fifty-nine thou- 
sand nine hundred and ninety-six dollars ; and fifty thousand one hundred and 
seventy-seven names were added to the pension rolls. The entire number of 
pensioners June 30, 1866, was one hundred and twenty- six thousand seven 
hundred and twenty- two. This fact furnishes melancholy and striking proof 
of the sacrifices made to vindicate the constitutional authority of the federal 
government, and to maintain inviolate the integrity of the Union. They impose 
upon us corresponding obligations. It is estimated that thirty-three million 
dollars will bo required to meet the exigencies of this branch of the service 
during the next fiscal year. 

Treaties have been concluded with the Indians, who, enticed into armed 
opposition to our government at the outbreak of the rebellion, have uncondi- 
tionally submitted to our authority, and manifested an earnest desire for a 
renewal of friendly relations. 

Daring the year ending September 30, 1866, eight thousand seven hundred 
and sixteen patents for useful inventions and designs were issued, and at that 
date the balance in the treasury to the credit of the patent fund was two hun- 
dred and twenty-eight thousand two hundred and ninety-seven dollars. 

As a subject upon which depends an immense amount of the production and 
commerce of the country, I recommend to Congress such legislation as may be 



20 JOURNAL OF THE [Dec. 3, 1866. 

necessary for the preservation of the levees of the Mississippi river. It is a 
matter of national importance that early steps should be taken not only to add 
to the eflSciency of these barriers against destructive inundations, but for the 
removal of all obstructions to the free and safe navigation of that great channel 
of trade and commerce. 

The District of Columbia, under existing laws, is not entitled to that represent- 
ation in the national councils which from our earliest history has been uniformly 
accorded to each Territory established from time to time within our limits. It 
maintains peculiar relations to Congress, to whom the Constitution has granted 
the power of exercising exclusive legislation over the seat of government. Our 
fellow-citizens residing in the District, whose interests are thus confided to the 
special guardianship of Congress, exceed in number the population of several 
of our Territories, and no just reason is perceived why a delegate of their 
choice should not be admitted to a seat in the House of Representatives. No 
mode seems so appropriate and effectual of enabling them to make known their 
peculiar condition and wants, and of securing the local legislation adapted to 
them. I f/herefore recommend the passage of a law authorizing the electors of 
the District of Columbia to choose a delegate, to be allowed the same rights 
and privileges as a delegate representing a Territory. The increasing enter- 
prise and rapid progress of improvement in the District are highly gratifying, 
and I trust that the efforts of the municipal authorities to promote the prosperity 
of the national metropolis will receive the efficient and generous co-operation of 
* Congress. 

The report of the Commissioner of Agriculture reviews the operations of his 
department during the past year, and asks the aid of Congress in its efforts to 
encourage those States which, scourged by war, are now earnestly engaged in 
the reorganization of domestic industry. 

It is a subject of congratulation that no foreign combinations against our 
domestic peace and safety, or our legitimate influence among the nations, have 
been formed or attempted. While sentiments of reconciliation, loyalty, and 
patriotism have increased at home, a more just consideration of our national 
character and rights has been manifested by foreign nations. 

The entire success of the Atlantic telegraph between the coast of Ireland 
and the province of Newfoundland is an achievement which has been justly 
celebrated in both hemispheres as the opening of an era in the progress of civil- 
ization. There is reason to expect that equal success will attend, and even 
greater results follow, the enterprise for connecting the two continents through 
the Pacific ocean by the projected line of telegraph between Kamschatka and 
the Russian possessions iu America. 

The resolution of Congress protesting against pardons by foreign governments 
of persons convicted of infamous offences, on condition of emigration to our 
country, has been communicated to the states with which we maintain intercourse, 
and the practice, so justly the subject of complaint on our part, has not been 
renewed. 

The congratulations of Congress to the Emperor of Russia, upon his escape 
from attempted assassination, have been presented to that humane and enlightened 
ruler, and received by him with expressions of grateful appreciation. 

The Executive, warned of an attempt by Spanish-American adventurers to 
induce the emigration of freedmen of the United States to a foreign country, 
protested against the project as one which, if consummated, would reduce them to 
a bondage even more oppressive than that from which they have just been re- 
lieved. Assurance has been received from the government of the state in which 
the plan was matured, that the proceeding will meet neither its encouragement 
nor approval. It is a question worthy of your consideration, whether our laws 
upon tnis subject are adequate to the prevention or punishment of the crime 
thus meditated. 



Dec. 3, 186G.J HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. 21 

In the month of April last, as Congress is aware, a friendly arrangement was 
made between the Emperor of France and the President of the United States 
for the withdrawal from Mexico of the French expeditionary military forces. 
This withdrawal was to be effected in three detachments, the first of which, it 
was understood, would leave Mexico in November, now past, the second in 
March next, and the third find last in November, 1867. Immediately upon the 
completion of the evacuation, the French government was to assume the 
»»ame attitude of non-intervention in regard to Mexico as is held by the gov- 
ernment of the United States. Repeated assurances have been given by the 
Emperor s ince that agreement that he would complete the promised evacuation 
within the period mentioned, or sooner. 

It was reasonably expected that the proceedings thus contemplated would 
produce a crisis of great political interest in the republic of ^lexico. The newly 
appointed minister of the United States, Mr. Campbell, was therefore sent for- 
ward on the ninth day of November last, to assume his proper functions as 
minister plenipotentiary of the United States to that republic. It was also 
thought expedient that he sholild be attended in the vicinity of Mexico by the 
lieutenant general of the army of the United States, with the view of obtaining 
such information as might be important to determine the course to be pursued 
by the United States in re-establishing and maintaining necessary and proper 
intercourse with the republic of Mexico. Deeply interested in the cause of liberty 
and humanity, it seemed an obvious duty on our part to exercise whatever in- 
fluence we possessed for the restoration and permanent establishment in that 
country of a domestic and republican form of government 

Such was the condition of our affairs in regard to Mexico when, on the 22d of 
November last, official information was received from Paris that the Emperor 
of France had some time before decided not to withdraw a detachment of his forces 
in the month of November past, according to engagement, but that this decision 
was made with the purpose of withdrawing the whole of those forces in the en- 
suing spring. Of this determination, however, the United States had not re- 
ceived any notice or intimation ; and, so soon as the infonnation was received 
by the government, care was taken to make known its dissent to the Emperor 
of France. 

I cannot forego the hope that France will reconsider the subject, and adopt 
some resolution in regard to the evacuation of Mexico which will conform as 
nearly as practicable with the existing engagement, and thus meet the just ex- 
pectations of the United States. The papers relating to the subject will be laid 
before you. It is believed that, with the evacuation of Mexico by the expeditionary 
forces, no subject for serious differences between France and the United States 
would remain. The expressions of the Emperor and people of France warrant 
a hope that the traditionary friendship between the two countries might in that 
case be renewed and permanently restored. 

A claim of a citizen of the United States for indemnity for spoliations com- 
mitted on the high seas by the French authorities, in the exercise of a belliger- 
ent power against Mexico, has been met by the govei-nment of France with a 
proposition to defer settlement until a mutual convention for the adjustment of 
all claims of citizens and subjects of both countries, arising out of the recent 
wars on this continent, shall be agi-eed upon by the two countries. The sug- 
gestion is not deemed unreasonable, but it belongs to Congress to direct the 
manner in which claims for indemnity by foreigners, as well as by citizens of 
the United States, arising out of the late civil war, shall be adjudicated and de- 
termined. I have no doubt that the subject of all such claims will engage your 
attention at a convenient and proper time. 

It is a matter of regret that no considerable advance has been made towards 
an adjustment of the differences between the United States and Great Britain 
arising out of the depredations upon our national commerce and other trespasses 



22 JOURNAL OF THE [Dec. 3, 1866. 

committed during our civil war by British subjects, in violation of international 
law and treaty obligations. The delay, however, may be believed to have re- 
sulted in no small degree from the domestic situation of Great Britain. An en- 
tire change of ministry occurred in that country during the last session of Par- 
liament. The attention of the new ministry was called to the subject at an early 
day, and there is some reason to expect that it will now be considered in a be- 
coming and friendly spirit. The importance of an early disposition of the ques- 
tion cannot be exaggerated. Whatever might be the wishes of the two govern- 
ments, it is manifest that good-will and friendship between the two countries can- 
not be established until a reciprocity, in the practice of good faith and neutrality, 
shall be restored between the respective nations. 

On the 6th of June last, in violation of our neutrality laws, a military 
expedition and enterprise against the British North American colonies was 
projected and attempted to be carried on within the tenitor}^ and jurisdiction of 
the United States. In obedience to the obligation imposed upon the Executive 
by the Constitution, to see that the laws are faithfully executed, «ill citizens 
were warned, by proclamation, against taking part in or aiding such unlawful 
proceedings, and the proper civil, military, and naval officers were directed to 
take all necessary measures for the enforcement of the laws. The expedition 
failed, but it has not been without its painful consequences. Some of our citi- 
zens who, it was alleged, were engaged in the expedition, were captured, and 
have been brought to trial as for a capital offence, in the province of Canada. 
Judgment and sentence of death have been pronounced against some, while 
others have been acquitted. Fully believing in the maxim of government that 
severity of civil punishment for misguided persons who have engaged in revolu- 
tionary attempts which have disastrously failed, is unsound and unwise, such 
representations have been made to the British government, in behalf of the 
convicted persons, as, being sustained by an enlightened and humane judg- 
ment, will, it is hoped, induce in their cases an exercise of clemency, and a ju- 
dicious amnesty to all who were engaged in the movement. Counsel has been 
employed by the government to defend citizens of the United States on trial for 
capital offences in Canada, and a discontinuance of the prosecutions which were 
instituted in the courts of the United States against those who took part in the 
expedition, has been directed. 

I have regarded the expedition as not only political in its nature, but as also 
in a great measure foreign from the United States in its causes, character, and 
objects. The attempt was understood to be made in sympathy with an insur- 
gent party in Ireland, and, by striking at a British province on this continent, 
was designed to aid in obtaining redress for political grievances which, it was 
assumed, the people of Ireland had suffered at the hands of the British govern- 
ment during a period of several centuries. The persons engaged in it were 
chiefly natives of that country, some of whom had, while others had not, 
become citizens of the United States under our general laws of naturalization. 
Complaints of misgovernment in Ireland continually engage the attention of the 
British nation, and so great an agitation is now prevailing in Ireland that the 
British government have deemed it necessary to suspend the writ of habeas cor- 
pus in that country. These circumstances must necessarily modify the opinion 
which we might otherwise have entertained in regard to an expedition expressly 
prohibited by our neutrality laws. So long as those laws remain upon our 
statute books they should be faithfully executed, and if they operate harshly, 
unjustly, or oppressively. Congress alone can apply the remedy by their modifi- 
cation or repeal. 

Political and commercial interests of the United States are not unlikely to be 
affected in some degi-ee by events which ai-e transpiring in the eastern regions 
of Europe, and the time seems to have come when our government ought to 
liave a proper diplomatic representation in Greece. 



Dec. 3, 1866.] HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.

This government has claimed for all persons not convicted, or accused, or 
suspected of crime, an absolute political right of self-expatriation, and a choice 
of new national allegiance. Most of the European states have dissented from 
this principle, and have claimed a right to hold such of their subjects as have 
immigrated to and been naturalized in the United States, and afterwards re- 
turned on transient visits to their native countries, to the performance of military 
service in like manner as resident subjects. Complaints arising from the claim 
in this respect made by foreign states have heretofore been matters of contro- 
versy between the United States and some of the European powers, and the 
irritation consequent upon the failure to settle this question increased during the 
war in which Prussia, Italy, and Austria were recently engaged. While Great 
Britain has never acknowledged the right of expatriation, she has not for some 
years past practically insisted upon the opposite doctrine. France has been 
equally forbearing ; and Prussia has proposed a compromise, which, although 
evincing increased liberality, has not been accepted by the United States. 
Peace is now prevailing everywhere in Europe, and the present seems to be a 
favo rable time for an assertion by Congress of the principle, so long maintained 
by the executive department, that naturalization by one state fully exempts the 
native-born subject of any other state from the performance of military service 
under any foreign government, so long as he does not voluntarily renounce its 
rights and benefits. 

In the performance of a duty imposed upon me by the Constitution, I have 
thus submitted to the representatives of the States and of the people such in- 
formation of our domestic and foreign affairs as the public interests seem to re- 
quire. Our goveniment is now undergoing its most trying ordeal, and my ear- 
nest prayer is that the peril may be successfully and finally passed without im- 
pairing its original strength and symmetry. The interests of the nation are 
best to be promoted by the revival of fraternal relations, the complete oblitera- 
tion of our past differences, and the reinauguration of all the pursuits of peace. 
Directing our efforts to the early accomplishment of these great ends, let us en- 
deavor to preserve harmony between the co-ordinate departments of the govern- 
ment, that each in its proper sphere may cordially co-operate with the other in 
securing the maintenance of the Constitution, the preservation of the Union, 
and the perpetuity of our free institutions.

On motion of Mr. Hooper, 

Ordered, That its consideration be further postponed until the 3d Tuesday

The Speaker having announced as the business next in order the calling of 
committees for reports, 

Mr. Williams, from the Committee on the Judiciary, to whom were lefevYed 
hilh of the fo J Jo wing titles, viz: 



26 JOURNAL OF THE [Dec. 4, 1S66. 

H. R. 65. A bill to create the northern judicial district of Pennsylvania ; 

H. R. 576. A bill to authorize the employment of additional counsel in casct* 
of claims depending against the government of the United States; and 

H. R. 12. A bill to repeal a portion of a joint resolution explanatory of "An 
act to suppress insurrection, to punish treason and rebellion, to seize and con- 
fiscate the property of rebels, and for other purposes," approved July 17, 1862, 
reported the same severally with a recommendation that they do not pass, accom- 
panied by a report on the last-named bill. 

Ordcredt That the said bills and report be laid on the table, and that the 
report be printed. 

Mr. Williams, from the same committee, to whom was referred the bill of the 
House (H. R. 560) to amend an act entitled **An act to provide a national cur- 
rency, secured by a pledge of United States bonds, and to provide for the cir- 
culation and redemption thereof,'* reported the same without amendment. 

Ordered^ That its further consideration be postponed until Thursday, the 
13th instant, after the morning hour, and that it be made a special order for 
that time, and from day to day until disposed of, and that it be printed. 

Mr. Jenckes, from the Select Committee on the Civil Service, to whom was 
referred the bill of the House (H. R. 673) to regulate the civil service of the 
United States, and to promote the efficiency thereof, reported the same with an 
amendment. 

Ordered, That the said bill be printed and recommitted. 

Mr. Cobb submitted the following preamble and resolutions; which were read, 
considered, and agreed to, viz : 

Whereas sections twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, and sixteen of the act 
making appropriations for sundry civil expenses of the government for the year 
ending June 30, 1S67, and for other purposes, approved July 28, 1866, which 
sections of said act provide for the payment of an additional bounty to certain 
soldiers of the Union army, were prepared and passed in great haste, and with- 
out due examination or consideration by the members of either house of Con- 
gress, by reason of which the said sections are believed to but illy express the 
will of Congress, are partial in their application, and fall far short of an equal- 
ization of bounties; and whereas sections seventeen and eighteen of said act, 
providing for an increase of the pay of members of Congress, were attached to 
said bill and adopted in great haste in the closing hours of the session, receiving 
but a bare majority of votes in a very thin house, and being believed to be of 
questionable propriety as well in substance as in form : Therefore, 

Resolved, first. That the Committee on Military Afiairs be, and they arc hereby, 
instructed to inquire into the expediency of so amending said act as to provide 
for the payment of an additional bounty to all soldiers of the late volunteer 
forces of the United States who served faithfully in the late war, have been 
honorably discharged, and have not received nor are entitled to receive more 
than $100 bounty under previous laws; also of amending said act so that the 
soldier shall not be deprived of its benefits by reason of the accidental loss or 
destruction of his certificate of honorable discharge without fault on his part ; 
and that the committee report by bill or otherwise. 

Resolved, second, That the Committee on the Judiciary be, and they are 
hereby, instructed to inquire into the expediency of repealing so much of said 
act as provides for an increase of the pay of members of Congress, and that 
they report by bill or otherwise. 

Mr. Cobb moved that the vote last taken bo reconsidered, and also moved 
that the motion to reconsider be laid on the table; which latter motion was 
agreed to. 

Mr. Paine submitted the following resolution ; which was read and laid over

Whereas the following, purporting to be an oflScial advertisement, appeared 
in the public prints of the day as copied from one of the newspapers of Mary- 
land : 

" Public Sale. — The undersigned will sell at the court-house door, in the 
city of Annapolis, at 12 o'clock m., on Saturday, 8th December, 1866, a negro 
man named Richard Harris, for six months, convicted at the October term, 



Dec. 17. 1866.] HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. 89 

1866, of the Anne Arundel circuit court, for larceny, and sentenced by the 
court to be sold as a slave. Terms of sale, cash. 

"WM. BRYAN, 
" S/terlff Anne Arundel Coujiti/. 
'/December 3, 1866." 

Therefore, resohed. That the Committee on the Judiciary be instructed to 
inquire whether such conviction and order of sale occurred as stated in said ad- 
vertisement ; and if so, whether such proceeding is not in direct conflict with 
the Constitution of the United State? and with the act '* to protect all persons 
in the United States in their civil rights and furnish the means of their vindi- 
cation;" and that if in their opinion the Constitution and the act referred to 
have been violated, the committee further inquire whether any steps have 
been taken by the President of the United States to enforce the law and pre- 
vent such outrages ; and that said committee have power to send for persons 
and papers and to report to the House at any time what action they may deem 
necessary and proper for Congress to take on the subject. 

Pending which, 

31 r. William Lawrence submitted the following amendment thereto, viz : Add 
at the end thereof: "And said committee is also directed to report what legis- 
lation, if any, is necessary to protect loyal citizens in the enjoyment of life, 
liberty, and property in that portion of the States declared to be in rebellion." 

And the question being put, Will the House agree theret^o ? 

It was decided in the affirmative. 

The resolution as amended was then agreed to. 

Mr. Schenck moved that the vote last taken be reconsidered, and also moved 
that the motion to reconsider be laid on the table ; which latter motion was 
agreed to. 

Mr. James M. Ashley moved that the rules be suspended so as to enable him 
to report from the Committee on the Territories the following resolution, viz : 

Rcso/vedf That a select committee to consist of seven members of this house 
be appointed by the Speaker, whose duty it shall be to inquire whether any 
acts have been done by any officer of the government of the United States 
which in contemplation of the Constitution are high crimes or misdemeanors,

corrupt the government of the United States, or any department thereof, and 
that said committee have power to send for persons and papers and to adminis-

ment;

The Speaker having resumed the call of the States and Territories for reso- 
lutions,

Whereas, under the provisions of section twenty -four of an act entitled '* An 
act to ameitl an act entitled * An act for enrolling and calling out the national 
forces, and for other purposes,* " approved February 24, 1864, the Secretary 
of War was required to appoint a commission in each of the slave States repre- 
gented in Congress to award to each loyal person to whom a colored volunteer 
may have owed service a just compensation, payable out of the fund derived 
from commutations ; and whereas, imder the provisions of section two of an 
ict approved July 28, 1866, entitled " An act making appropriations for sundry 
civil expenses of the government for the year ending June 30, 1867, and for 
other purposes," ap much of any money in the treasury known as the commu- 
tation fund as may be necessary was appropriated for payment to such claimants 
of the amounts before or thereiiler to be awarded upon the final reports of such 
commiseions on all such claims ; and whereas, also, it is represented that so 
vague and deceptive are the interpretations of the word "loyal," and so per- 
verted the consciences of those who sympathized with the late rebellion, that 
oaths are unscrupulously taken, and proofs made which will compel the most 
watchful commissioners now in session to award millions of dollars to the most 
guileful enemies of the government, contrary to the spirit of the acts before 
mentioned : Therefore, 

Be it resolvedf That the Committee on the Judiciary be instructed to inquire 
into the constitutionality and expediency of a repeal of these laws, and to 
report to this house by bill or otherwise. 

The same having been read, 

The Speaker stated the question to be on agreeing to the resolution. 

Pending which, 

Mr. McClurg moved the previous question ; which was seconded and the main 
question ordered and put, viz : Will the House agree to the said resolution 1

**The crime was committed. The way was made clear for the succession ; 
an assassin's bullet, wielded and directed by rebel hand and paid for by rebel 
gold, made Andrew Johnson President of the United States of America. The 
price that he was to pay for his promotion was treachery to the republic and 
fidelity to the party of treason and rebellion." 

The Speaker stated that inasmuch as the Constitution authorizes the removal 
from office of the President '* on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason.

bribery, or other high crimes aud misdemeanors,'' and also provides that articles 
of impeachment must be found by the House, and as the pending resolution 
contains a general charge against the President of crimes and misdemeanors, 
for which it is declared he should be impeached, it was competent in the dis- 
cussion of the resolution for the gentleman from Missouri (Mr. Loan) to specify 
any one of such charges. He therefore overruled the point of order. 

From this decision of the Chair Mr. Henry D. Washburn appealed. 

Pending which,

become due and be redeemed within the year, as may be in excess of the four 
millions of currency now authorized by law to be withdrawn from circulation

instead of force to make its victims captive : Therefore,

So the motion to adjourn over was disagreed to. 

The question then lecurring on the motion of Mr. Eldridge to lay the bill on 
the table. 

Mr. Trimble rose and proposed as a question of privilege to call attention to 
a report of the associated press of remarks made by him in the House. 

The Speaker decided that the gentleman from Kentucky was out of order, 
on the ground that no question of privilege was involved in such a report, and 
that even if such was the case it could not be entertained at this time owing to 
the pendency of the motion to lay the bill on the table. 

From this decision of the Chair, Mr. Finck appealed. 

Pending which, 

Mr. Aucona moved that the appeal be laid on the table.
