MASSACHUSETTS POLITICS* Sheeting of the Republicans in Con vention. SPEECH or SENATOR SUMNER. His Tirade Against the South and feriorlfi cation of the Negro. THECOURSETOBEPURSUED by the radicals in the NEXT CONGRESS FORE SHADOWED. THE president lectured and the determination manifested TO DEFEAT HIS POLICY. Worcesteb, September 14, 18G5. The Massachusetts Republican State Con vention assembled here to day and is largely attended. The Convention permaijtly organized by electing Charles Sumner president, and two vice presidents from each Congressional dis trict, and a large number from tbe State at largo. Among the latter is Major General Benjamin F. Butler. The several committees ou tesolutions, finance, &c., were appointed. SENATOR SUMNERS SPEECH. Senator Sumner, on taking the chair, de livered a long, prepared and printed speech, commencing at the very outset by denounc ing the policy of the administration, declar ing that tbe ship of State was drifting upon the lee shore, and that apologies or round about phrases were out ot place when danger threatens. The following are extracts from his speech : EMANCIPATION NOT COMPLETE SO LONG AS THE BLACK CODE EXISTS. When last I addressed my fellow citizens on public affairs, at the close of the late Presidential election, as we were about to vote for Abraham Liucoln and Andrew John son, I undertook to show the absolute iden tity between slavery and the rebellion, so that one could not end without the other. As I finished that address I said to ti lends near me, that it was ‘my last anti-slavery speech.’ X so thought at the time ; for I anticipated the speedy downfall of the rebellion, carry ing with it slavery. I was mistaken. Neither the rebellion nor slavery is yet ended. The rebellion has been disarmed : but that is all. Slavery has been abolished in name; but that is all. As there is still a quasi rebellion so is there still a quasi slavery. The work ot i- liberation is not yet completed. Nor can it l be completed. Nor can it be completed until the equal rights of every person once claimed as a slave are placed under the saleguard of hyeversible guarantees. It is not enough to strike down tbe master ; you must also lift uu-tiie slave. It is not enough to declare that slavery is abolished The whole black code which is the supplement of slavery, must give place to that equality before tue law which is ibe very essence ot liberty. It is an old principle of the common law, re cognized by all our courts, as announced by Lord Coke, that “where the law grantelh anything to any one, that also is gianted without which the thing itself cannot he. So also where A piece of laud is granted, which is shut in by the possessions ot the grautoi, a right of way is implied from common justice and the necessity of tbe Lntiiallis done in every particulai and beyond possi bility of question, it is in vain to say that emancipation has been secured. The good work is only half doue. It must he contmued to its assured consummation. He dwell to some extent on Russian emancipation, and then turned to the PU'l v OF MASSACHUSETTS. In asking that we shall do likewise, I fol low the plain suggestions of reason, whether we regard the interest of the lreedman or our own. But justice to the freedinan is now intimately linked with the national security'. Be just and the republic will be strong. Be just and you will erect a barrier against the rebellion. On this question Massachusetts has a duty to perform. Now, as m times past, her place is in the front, ion will not, i trust, be disturbed by criticism, even if it become invective. Throughout the long conflict with slavery and the earlier conflict with the mother country, Massachusetts has become accustomed to hard words, find, even at a more ancient day, as lar bacU in coloniel history as 1691, we find an ill tem pered critic, with a strange iumb e ot metaphors, crying out against our tatneis, “All the frame of heaven moves upon one axis, and the whole of New England interest seems designed to be loaden on one bottom and her particular motion to be concentric to the Massachusetts tropic. You know who are wont to trot after the hay horse. If others trot after the bay horse, it is simp ly because Massachusetts means always to keep on the right road, and, by unerring in stinct, knows the way. Error proceeds oftener from ignorance than from malice. Obviously, at this moment, the great Ulffl culty is that people do not see clearly what ought to be done. . From this he passed on to national secuii to, then gave an exposition according to the radical creed of NATIONAL FAITH. There is another object, kindred to securi -ty, or, perhaps, embraced in security ; and that is the national faith. This, too, must be placed beyoud cavil, or even “suspicion.” No nation cau be powerful enough to disre gard this sacred bond. Character, fame and prosperity itself are all dependent npon its observance. But the national faith is solemn ly engaged, first to the national freedmen, and secondly, to the national creditors. No undertaking can be more complete and in violable, because it constituted the considera tion for those services and supplies by which the life of the republic has been preserved. The national faith is pledged to the national freedmen, not only by the act of emancipa tion, which, in its very essence and from the very nature of the case, is a “warranty of title ” but also by the plain and posiiive promises of the proclamation, that “the executive government of the U nited States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the free dom of such persons.” Words could not be more binding, and the history of tMr intro duction testifies to their significance and efficacy. ‘ ’ 1 They were not in the original draft by Pre aident Lincoln, but were inserted at the sug gestion ol Mr. Seward, when the proclama tion was read to the Cabinet; acd there they stand without any limitation of place or time, binding this republic in its national character, through its Executive, including the military and naval authority, not only to recogDizc, but to maintain the freedom of the emancipated slave; and this is to be done, not in any special locality, but everywhere, and not tor a day or a year, but for all time. Our obliga tion to the national creditors is of the same validity, approved by successive acts of Con gress, ratified by tbe popular will, and fixed beyond recall by the actual enjoyment of those precious huits for which the debt was incurred. Repudiation of our bonds, whether to the national creditors or to tbe national treeumen would be a home and a crime ; and the national faith is irrevocably plighted to the two alike. Here is the proclamation and here is the Treasury note. Look at the signatures and look at the terms. Tbe former is signed by the President himself, Abraham Lincoln ; the latter is signed by an unknown clerk, whose name I cannot decipher. The former is stronger and more positive in its terms than tbe latter. Tbe Treasury note simply says that it is “ redeemable after a certain date,” and that “this debt is author ized by act of Congress. ” The binding terms ot the proclamation, which I have already read, are solemnly enforced by that memor able invocation at the close: “And upon this act, sincerely believed to beau act of justice warranted by tbe constititution upon military necessity, I invoke the consi derate judgment of mankind and tbe gracious favor of Almighty God,” Thus religion comes to confirm the pledge with sanctions of its own. That pledge is as enduring as the republicitself. Passing from this poiut he dwelt a short time on tbe dikes of Holland, dikes in general, the condition oft be rebel States —in which lie gave tiie position ot affairs just as the rebel armies were surrendering—and ignored re cent developments; charged tbe South with a determination to repudiate the national debt, accompanied with an argument against the assumption of the rebel debt. Then came a chapter on guarantees of all kinds, then laid down what may be termed the real creed of his radical Jacobin faction, under the head of WAVS TO OBTAIN GUARANTIES. He asserted that time is necessary. There •must be no precipitation. 'Hrae is the gent lest, but most powerful, revolutionist. Time is the surest reformer. Time is a peacema ker. Time is necessary to growth, and it is an element of change. For thirty years and more this wickedness was maturing. Who can say that the same time will not be need ed now to mature the conditions of perma nent peace ? Who can say that a generation must not elapse before these rebel communi ties have been so far changed as to become sate associates in a common government ? Plainly, this cannot be done at one. Wel lington exclaimed, “Would that night or Blucher had come!” Time alone was a sub stitute for a powerful ally. It was more through time than battle that La Vendee was changed into loyalty. Time, therefore, we must have. Through time all other guaran tees may be obtained ; but time itself is a guarantee. PRESENT EXCLUSION OF REBELS FROM POLITI CAL POWER. Meantime we must follow Congress in the present exclusion of all rebels from political power. They must not be voted for and they must not vote. On this principle I take my stand. Let them buy and sell, let them till tlse giound—and may they be industrious and successful. These things they may do; but they must not be admitted at once into the co-partnership ot our government. As well might tbe respectable Mr. Ketchum re instate his son at once in the firm which he lms betrayed, and invest him again with all the powers of co-partner. The father re ceived his son with parental affection, and forgave him, but he did not invite the crimi nal to resume his former desk in Wall street. And yet Edward Ketchum, who had robbed and forged on uu unprecedented scale, is as worthy of trust in the old banking bouse ai our rebels in tbe government of the country, long probation will be needed before either can be admitted to his former fellowship.— The state of outlawry is the present condi tion of each, and this condition must not be hastily relaxed. Congress has already set the example by excluding from “any office of honor or profit under the government of United States,” and also by excluding as counsellor at law, from any court of the United states, every person who has given “aid or countenance” to the rebellion, or who has “sought or accepted any office whatever” under it, or who has yielded to it any “voluntary support." This exclusion, thus sanctioned by Congress, must be the pole-star of our national policy. If rebels cannot be officers under our gov ernment, they ought not to be voters. They should be politically disfranchised, purely and simply as a measure of self-defence, and in order to prepare the way tor those guarantees which w'e seek. “Vipers cannot use their venom in the cold.” These are words of political wisdom as well as of scientific truth, and a great Italian writer did not hesitate to inculcate from them the same lesson that Ido now. Still further, in ob taining guarantees we must look confidently to Congress, which has plenary powers over the whole subject. Congress can do every thing needful. It has already begun by ex cluding rebels from office. It must con tinue its jurisdiction ; whether, through the war powers, or the duty to guarantee *t re publican form of government, or the neces sity of the case, as in territories, as a matter of little importance. It is of less importance under which of its powers this is done, than that it is done. Contineing its jurisdiction, Congress musts upervise aud fix the condi tions of order, so that the national security and national faith shall not suffer. Here is a sacred obligation which cannot be post poned. All mese guarantees should be com pleted and crowned by au amendment of the constitution of the United States, especially providing that heiealter there shall be no de nial ot the electoral franchise or any exclu- sion of any kind on account of color or race, but all persons shall be equal before the law. At Ibis moment, under a just interpretation of tr.e constitution, three-fourths ot the States actually co-operating in the national government are sufficient for this change.— The words of the constitution are that amendments shall be valid to all intents and purposes “when ratified by three-fourths of the Legislatures of the several states,” or, to practical sense, by three-fourths of the States that have Legislatures. If a State has no Legislature it caunot be counted in determining this quorum, as it is not counted in determining the quorum of either house of Congress, where precisely the same question occurs. Aty other interpreta tion recognizes the rebellion and plays into its bands by conceding its power, through re bellious contrivance, to preveot an amend ment df the constitution, essential to the general welfare. He then urged the President to follow the sentiment ot Massachusetts and Congress, and concluded as follows: . For myself, fellow citizens, pardon me if I say that my course is fixed. Others may hesitate; others may turn away from those great truths which make the far-reaching brightness of the republic; others may seek a temporary favor by a temporary surrender. I shall not. Tbe victory of blood, which has been so painfully won, must be confirmed by a greater victory of Ideas, so that the re nowned words of Abraham Lincoln may be fulfilled, and “tbls nation uaOat God shall have anew birth of freedom, aud govern-' roent of the people, by the people, and for SAVANNAH. GEORGIA, FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 22, 1865. the people, shall not perish from tbe earth.” To this end I seek no merely formal Union, seething with smothered curses, but a prac tical, moral and political unity, founded on common rights, knit together by common interests and inspired by a common faith, wbeie our constitution, interpreted anew, shall lie a covenant with life and a league with Heaven, and liberty shall be every where not only a right but a duty. John Brown, on his way to the scaffold, where lie was to atone with life for a deed of self-sac rifice, stooped to take up a slave child. That closing act was the legacy of the dying man to his country. That benediction we must continue and fulfil. The last shall be first; and so, in this new order, equality, long post poned, shall become tbe master principle of our system and tbe very frontispiece of our constitution. The rebellion was to beat down this principle by founding a government on the alleged “inferiority ot a race.” Taking up the gauntlet I now insist that the insolent assumption of the conspirators shall not pre vail. This is not the first time that I have battled with the barbarism of slavery. 1 battle still as the bloody monster retreats to its lost citadel, and, God willing, I meau “to fight it out on this line if it takes” what re mains to me of life. Mr. Sumner spoke about one hour and a half, and was listened to with marked atten tion and applause. Photography as a Drawing-Room Amusement. HIE LATEST PARISIAN FASHION. The Paris correspondent of the London Morning Star writes : “Dubroni is the name of a young and most promising engineer, a pupil of the Ecole Polyteclmique. Laid up for several years with bad health, his mind remained as active as ever. Amidst the most intense bodily sufferings he applied himself, night and day, to the study and perfection of photography, hoping to initiatc the masses into its mysteries by symplify ing tbe manipulations and turning photo graphy into a drawing-room amusement within the reach of every purse. In this, Dubioni appears to have been quite suc cessful, inasmuch ns his ingenious appara'us entirely does away with the necessity of an operating chamber. You have no longer to dread any stains or spots on your dress or hands, as the chemical operations are all ac complished with tne pipette, a small instru ment by means of which you can introduce into the camera obscura, through a little orifice, the different chemical batb9 which the plate must undergo previous to its bear ing a picture. Dubroni, after having pursued bis experiments with unabated ardor, is certainly entitled to the honor of attaching his name to the scieoce of photography. Another distinguishing feature of his lillipu tian apparatus is the readiness with which it can be set up for use and repacked in a box which does not exceed in size a lady’s writ ing desk. Among the notabilities who are amusing themselves during their summer vacations with the a/ipercil Dubroni are the well-known diplomatists, Marquis de la Valette and M. de Persigny,, and no less a personage than Prince Napoleon him self.” HERALD JOB PRINTING OFFICE, No, ill Bay Street, GEORGIA.
