IMPORTANTCONFERENCE BETWEEN THE SOUTH CAROLINA DELEGATION, —AND PRESIDENT JOHNSON. THE PRESIDENT’S VIEWS ON THE PARDONING POWER. An Appeal for the Pardon of Jeff. Davis. The main facts of the interview between the President and the South Carolina dele gation, who presented a petition for the par don of Jeff. Davis, A. H. Stephens, Geo. A. Trenbolin, and Gov. Magrath, have been telegraphed to the Herald, but the details of that interview will be read with great avidity. The following is the full account of the in terview of the South Carolinians with the President; Washington, Oct. 13. Judge Wardiaw, Alfred Huger, and Col onel Dawins, of South Carolina, this after noon bad an interview by appointment with President Johnson. They were accompa nied by \V. H. Trescott, Esq., who is litre on business as elective agent of that State. — The President, alter the customary prelimi naries of reception, invited them to _ be seat ed, when at once the conversation com menced by Judge Wardiaw informing bim that they were a delegation from the State Convention of South Carolina, sent hither to present certain memorials of that body.— These memorials had been very carefully considered in the Convention, anil he believ ed they told exactly the truth. The Presi dent inquired the object of the memorials. Judge Wardiaw inlormed him that one of them was in behalf of Jefferson Davis, A. H. Stephens, George A. Trenholro, andGov ernor Magrath. He said they had under stood that by the late interference of the President, Messrs. Stephens and Trenholm bad already been released from close confine ment and permit e l to return to their home 9. He would ask for Governor Magrath either a pardon or that he might be released on his parole. They could assure the President no harm would result from such au act of clemency. The President replied that all could not be pardoned at once. The business must be proceeded with gradually, and an effort made to execute the law. A discrimination was nt cessary as we went along. It was a too c >mmon expression, by way of argu ment in regard to clemency, that such a one had been pardoned, and that he was just as bad as another who had not been pardoned. Judge Wardiaw replied that the delega tion presented no such argument as that. The President said sometimes the pecu liar locality had much to do with pardons. Like many other things in human affaire, we cannot have a fixed rule. Much depends on discretion and circumstances. It we know ourselves, we want to do what is best and just, and to show a proper degree of hu manity on the part of the government. Jude Wardiaw remarked that they had not come hither to express their own hopes and desires, but as delegates lrom the South Carolina Convention to present the memo rials of that body in a formal manner. The President—We will, gentlemen, ex- tend all the facilities and courtesies which the questions require. We would prefer io pardon twenty men than to refuse one. Judge Wardlow relied that they did not design to say uuything with reference to Governor Magrath, further than that they r believe much good would result by the ex ercise of the executive clemency toward him. % Colonel Dawkins said—ls we can get Governor Magrath paroled, it would be a great relief to him at the present time. Julge Ward a v th inked the President for having relcastd Messrs. Stephens and Treu holm. The President—We have that far, then, anticipated your memorial. Mr. Huger said Mr. Trenholm was one of their mosl useful men, and there was no doubt he would exert all his power with a view to enure harmony between the state and the government. The President replied that he understood that was so; adding, if treason was commit ted, there ought to be some test Io determine, the power of the government to punish the crime. He was free to say that it was not a mere contest between political parties, or a question as to ile facto governments. Look ing at the government as we do—the laws violated, and an. attempt made at the life of the nation—there aiiou'd be a vindication of the government and the Constitution, even if the pardoning power were exercised thereaf ter. It treason has been committed, it ought to be determined by the highest tribunal, and the fact declared, even if clemency should come afterward. There was no malice or prejudice in carrying out that duty. Judge Wardlaw remarked they were well aware of that. The President, resuming, said there may be some uukind feeling on'thissu ject, but It did not exist to any great extent. Judge Wardlaw said, although not in structed by the convention, he was induced to ask whether Mrs. Jefferson Davis, who was now confined to Georgia, could not cross into South Caroliua.to see her friends. The President replied that be bad received letters from Mrs. Davis; but they were not very commendable. The tone of one of them, however, was considerably improved, bqt the others were not of the character becom- ing one asking leniency. Judge WardUw interposed by saying she was a woman of strong feeling. The President—Yes, I suppose she is a woman of strong feeling and temper ; but there is no intention to persecute her. There is as much magnanimity and independence and nobleness of spirit in. submitting as in tr> iug to put the government at defiance.— True magnanimity takes things as they are ; and when taken in the proper way, I discon nect them fiom humiliation. Manifestations of temper and defiance do no good. Mr. Huger remarked that they had a deep consciousness of the truth of all the Presi dent said. The President, resuming, observed that the character of an individual may characterize a nation, which is nothing but an aggregate of individuals ; and when a proper spirit is manifested all can act harmoniously. The man who goes to the stake is almost dignified by this bearing ; it Ills him above humiliation. In theae cases, gentlemen, we will do the best we can. While there is sympathy there <• a public judgment which mast be met. — But I assure you, gentlemen, no disposition exists for peisecution, or thirst for blood. Judge Wardiaw remarked that Ihe tone of the newspapers was moic favorable and different.from what it wab He then asked lithe President had seen a copy of the amended constitution ol South Carolina. Os course he hud seen they accepted emanci pation. He felt perfectly satisfied that the person and property of the negro will be protected, and spoke of the great difficulties of regulating labor, aud of restraining va grancy, etc. The President thought many of the evils would disappear if they inaugurated the right system. Pass laws protecting the colored man in his person and property, and he can collect his debts. He kuew bow it was in tbe South. The question when first pre sented of putting a colored man in the wit neis-stand made them shrug their shoulders. But the colored man's testimony was to be taken for what ii was worth by those who examine him and the jury who hear it. Af ter all there was not as much danger as was supposed. Those coming out of slavery cannot do without work. ~ They cannot lie down in dissipation ; they must work. They ought to understand that liberty means sim ply the right to work »nd enjoy the products of labor, and that the laws protect them. That being done, and when we come to the period to feel that men must work or starve, the country will be prepared to receive a system applicable to both white and black —prepared to receive a system necessary to the case. A short time back you could not enforce the vagrant law on the black, but could on the white man. But get the pub lic mind right, and you can treat both alike. Let U3 get the general principles, and the de tails and collaterals will follow'. A conversation of some length ensued be tween the President, and Judge Wardiaw, and Mr. Trescott, as to the legislation of the State necessary in reference to the condition of treedmen, and to the scope and conse quences of the circular No. 15, and general orders No. 145, from the Adjutant-General’s Department, relative to abandoned lauds in South Carolina and other Southern States. The examination of these subjects, it is un derstood, is to he continued ai another inter view. The President said : We must be practical, and come up to surrounding circumstances. Judge Wardiaw, Colonel Dawkins and Mr. Huger all expressed to the President their conviction that the state had accepted in good faith the results of the issue which bad been made; that the people felt that the President had stood between them and .a harsh use of the power of the government ; that they felt entire confidence in his purpo ses and actions, and hoped in return to enti tle themselves to his confidence as so their feelings and actions. The President replied that he w’as glad to hear it; that whenever such mutual confi dence existed, there would, he thought, be au open road to the restoration of good feel ing aud a prosperous condition, aud that if he knew himself, and he thought he did, he would recommend nothing but what would advance their interests, So far from pander ing or looking to future elevation, he must lie believed when be said lie had not an eye single to such preferment. If, he continued, I could be instrumental in restoring the gov ernment to its former relations, and see the people once more united and happy, I should feel that I had more than filled the measure of my ambition. If I could feel that I had contributed to this in any degree, my heart would be more than gratified, aud my ambi tion full. Judge Wardiaw—Every than in South Car o ina would respond to that. Air. Huger—l am sure there is, on their part, no puuic faith. They deserve your confi dence, and I am sure they will earn it. The President expressed himself gratified with what had been said by these gentlemen. Mr. Dawkius remarked that all South Car olina reposed confidence in the President, and that the memorials presented by the chairman of the delegation represented the true seutimeuts of the people of that State, both in regard to those whom they wished pardoned and the feeling and position of South Carolina. IMPORTANT ORDER FROM THE LIEUT. GENERAL, Tlie Forts South of Fortress Monroe to be Garrisoned by Colored Troops. General Grant has taken up his residence for the winter in Washington.
