SPEECH OIP UECRBIAfiV SEVVARD
THE POLICY OF THE ADMINISTKA
Mr Seward recently made a visit to his
home in Auburn. N. \«, and w'as received
most cordially t>v bis lriends and neighbors,
who congratulated him upon his entire res
toration to health.
In reply to an address of welcome by the
Rev. Doctor Hawley, Mr. S. Spoke freely
and Colly of national affairs, aud especially
of the policy oC reconstruction. He intio
duced the-subject by saying, that the pluu of
reconstruction which had been adopted by j
the present Administration was not spec.ally I
President Johnson's plan, nor even anew j
plan in any respect; but was the one which
presented itself to the last Administration at
the moment when the work of restoration
waa to begin, and it is the only plan, w hicb
thus seasonably presented itself, that could
then or ever after be adopted, and although
occasionally requiring a variation of details,
nevertheless admits of no substantial change
or variation. He urges that it is essential
to this plan that the seceding States shall,
by themselves and for themselves, accept
and adopt it, and thereby submit themselves
to and recognize the national authority.
He maintains, therefore, that President
Johnson's plan, as It is popularly styled,
recognizes not the destruction, nor even the
subversion of States, but their active tzistmee.
On this point he is clear and emphatic, and
advanced in support of it States' Rights
views which, emanating from him, struck us
For instance, speaking of the nature ot the
American Umon, he says:
In a practical sense, at least, the States
were before tbe American Union was, liven
while they were colonies of tho British
crown, they still were embryo Stales—sev
eral, free, self-existing aud indestructible.—
Our federal republic exists, and henceforth
and forever must exist, through, not the
creation but the combination of these sever
al,. free, self-existing, stubborn States.—
These States are not stakes driven into the
ground by an imperial baud, nor are they
posts hauled together, squared aud hewed,
and so erected loosely upon it; but they are
living, growing, majestic trees, whose roots
are widely spread am' aterliced within 'he
soil, and whose shade covers the earth, ll
at any time any of these trees shall be blown
down or upturned byvioleuee.it must be
lifted up again in its proper place; and sus
tained by kindly hands until it has renewed
its natural stability aud eiectness.
His views with regard to a permanent re
conciliation between tho seceding States and
the North are both interesting aud signifi
Your will ask whether a reconcilliation
which follows so closely upon military coer
cion can be relied upon. Can it be sincere ?
Can it.be permanent ? I answer, do yon ad
mit separation to be in any case possible ?
Does anybody now believe that it ever will
hereafter become possible ? Will you your
selves now or ever consent to it? You
answer all these questions in the negative.
Is not reconciliation, then, not ouly de
sirable, but imperative ? Is any other re
conciliation, under the circumstances, pos
sible ? Certainly you must accept this pro
posed reconciliation, or you must purpose
to delay and wait until you can ptocure a
better one. Good su r gery requires that even
simple fractures, much more compound ones,
shall be healed, U possible, at tbe first in
tention. Would not delay necessarily pro
long anarchy ? Are you sure that you can
procure a better reconcilliation alter pro
longed anarchy, without employing foice ?
Who wilt advocate tho employment of force
merely to hinder and delay, through pro
longed anarchy, a reconciliation which is
feasible aud perfectly consistent with the
Constitution? Iu what part of the Constitution
is written the power to continue civil war
against succumbing states for ultimate poli
tical triumph ? VYhat would this be but, in
fact, to institute anew civil wur, after one
had ended with the complete attainment of
the lawful objects for which it was waged.
Following this branch of his subject is an
ingenious and critical analysis of the con
stitutional powers of Congress and the Ad-
■miuistraliou to make war against any part
of the people of the United States to sup
press sedition and insurrection, which, al -
though strongly tinctured with federal
doctrines in positive conflict with his state
rights utterances, are not permitted to in
fluence unfavorably his action with refer
ence to the great question of reconstruction.
For he says:
It is certain that the plan of reconciliation
which I have thus largely explained,
must and will be adopted. (Applause ) It
may, however, be hindered or hastened.—
How can it be hindered ;' You are your
selves aware of the answer when you lasieu
upou any violent factious or seditions ex
hibition of passion or discontent in any of
the lately rebellious States, and argue trom
H the failure of the plan. You argue justly.
Every turbulent and factious person in tue
lately insurrectionary States is it sisliug, hin
dering and delaying the work of restoration
to the extent oi his ability. But the case is
precisely the same with' ourselves. Maui
testations of doubt, distrust, crimination,
contempt or deuance in the loyal Slates are
equally injurious, and equally tend lo delay
the work ot reconciliation. '

Near the close of his remarks he aUud Pd i u
the most complimentary terms to President
Johnson, whose patriotism and loyalty Wtre
above suspicion with those who knew and I
uuderstood him. He admonished them not

Tlic Macon Telegraph of the 24th, says
that the fire which resulted in the complete
destruction ot tbe old Bibb county jail was
the hottest known here for many years. It.
commenced burning about 8 12 iu the morn

whole building was on fire. There were
three stories, caniainiiig eighteen cells, all of
which, together with lhe hails, were inlaid
with eighteen inches of solid pine. The walls
stoutly resisted the heat for lourteen hours,
but at last three sides completely gave way
and fell to the earth. The Oeinulgee fire
company stood by the burning mass until all
danger was over, and almost incessantly
poured water upon the houses of the gas
company, and other buildings in pioxiinity,
and llms prevented a further destrnctipn of
property. Tne superior court will at ouce
order anew and more sub*tautial jail to be

A young man in Harrisburg, Pehn., an
