Upon the Constitution.
To the Senate of the United Stales:

in the Senate and has been passed by both Houses of
Congress to amend an act entitled “an act to establish
a bureau for the relief of freedinen and refugees and
for other purposes. ’ ’
Having, with much regret, come to the conclusion
that it would not be consistent with the public welfare
to give ray approval to the measure. I return the bill

TTie act to establish a bureau for the relief
ot freedinen and refugees, which was approved in the
Uat - haa not yet expired. It was
thought to be stringent enough for the purposes in
view before it ceases to have effect; further experience
may assist to guide us to a wise conclusion as to the
pohey to be adopted in time of peace
I have with Congress the strongest desire to secure
to ‘he freedmeu the full enjoyment of their property
and their enure independence and equality in making
contracts for their labor. But the bill before me con
tains provisions which, in my opinion, are not war-
ranted by the Constitution and are not well suited to
accomplish the end In view. Tho bill proposes to es-
tabbsh by authority of Congress military jurisdiction
over aU parts of the United States containing refugees
aud freedmeu. , It would, by its very nature, avoir
with most force to those parts of the United 8tatea in
which the freedmeu most abound; and it expressly
extends to the existing temporary jurisdiction of the
Freedmens Bureau, with greatly enlarged powers
over those acts in which the ordinary course ofjudb

asked whether the creation of sucii a tribunal within
a State is warranted aa a measure of war, the question
immediately presents itself whether we are still
engaged in war. Let us not unnecessarily disturb the
commerce, credit and industry of the country by
declaring to the American people and the world that
the United States are still in a condition of civil war.
At present tbci e is no part of our country in which fhe
authority of the United Stotas is disputed. Offenoos
that may be committed by individuals should not
work a forfeiture ol the rights of the same communi
ties. The country lia9 entered, or is returning, to a
state of peace and industry, and the rebellion is in
fact at an end. The measure, therefore, seems to be
as ^inconsistent with the actual condition of* the
country aa at variance with the Constitution of the
United States. If, passing from general considera
tions, we examine the bill in detail, it is open to
In time of war it was evidently proper that we
should provide for those who were passing suddenly
from a condition - of bondage to a state of freedom.
But the bill proposes to make the Freedmen’s Bu
reau; established by the act of I860,, aa one of the many
great aud extraordinary military mefUure9 to suppress
a formidable rebellion, a permanent branch of the pub
lic administration, with its powers greatly enlarged.
I have no reason to suppose, and do not understand it
to be alleged, that the a5t of March, 1865, has proved
deficient for the purpose for which it was passed, al
though at that time, and for a considerable period
thereafter, the Government of the United States re
mained unacknowledged in most of the States whose
inhabitants had been involved in the rebellion. The
institution of slavery, for the destruction of which the
Freedmen’s Bureau was called into existence as an
auxiliary for it, has already been effectually and finally
abrogated throughout the whole country by an amend
ment to the Constitution of the United States, and
praticslly ita eradication has received the assent and
knuounceo that the steamship Ban- concurrence of the most of those States which at any
■ov.na8tkt J j. Smallwood, has been time had existed, and are not, therefore, able to dis
cern in the country anything to justify mi apprehen
sion that the powers and agencies of the Freedmen’s
Bureau, which were effective for the protection of
freedmen and refugees, durifig the actual continuation
of hostilities and of African servitude, will it now, in a
time of peace, and after the abolition of slavery, prove
inadequate to the same proper ends ?
If I am correct in these views, there can be no ne
cessity for the enlargement of the powers of the Bu
reau, for which a provision is made in the bUL The
third section of the bill authorises a general and un
limited amount of support to the destitute and suffer
ing refugees and freedmen, and their wives and child-
and capable of selecting their own places of abode, of
insisting far them selves, for a proper remuneration,
and of establishing- and maintaining their own Asy
lums and achwfia. It is v earnestly hoped that instead
of wasting away, they will, by their own efforts, es
tablish for themselves a condition of respectability and
prosperity. It is certain they can attain to that con
dition only through their own merits anfl exertions.
In this connection the question presents itself
whether the system proposed by the bill will not, when
put into complete operation, practically transfer the en
tire care, support and control of four millions of eman
cipated slaves to agents, overseers or taskmasters,
who, appointed at Washington, are to be located in
_ „ , against
the Btate lor printing.

ing freedmen and refugees, such an asylum as would ,
inevitably tend to such a concentration of power in i
the Executive, which would enable him, if so dis- I
posed, to control the action of a numerous class, and j
use them for the attainment of his own political ends.
I cannot but add another very grave objection to
this bill. The Constitution imperatively declares, in
connection with v taxation, that each State have
at least one Representative, and fixes the rule for the
number to which, in future times, each State shall be
entitled. It also provides that the Senate of the Uni
ted States shall be composed of two Senators from
each State, and adds, with peculiar force, that no State
without its consent shall be deprived of its suffrage
in the South.
The original act waa necessarily passed in the ab
sence of the States chiefly to be affected, because their
people were then contumaciously engaged in the re
bellion. Same, at least, of the States are attending
Congress by loyal representatives, soliciting the allow

A system for the support of indigent persons in the
United States was never contemplated by the author*
of the Constitution. Nor can any good reason be ad
vanced why, as a permanent establishment, it should
be founded for one class or color of our people more
than another. Pending tbe war. many refugees and
freedmen received support tfom the Government, but
it was never intended theyshould lieneeforth bfe fed;

President is chosen by the people uf all tbe States;
eleven States are not now represented in Congress,
and it would seem to be his duty on all proper occa
sions to present their just claims to Congress. There
always will be difference of opinion in the community,
and individuals may be guilty of transaction of the
law, but those do not constitute valid objections
against the right of a State to representation.
It would in nowise interfere with the diacretiofa of
Congress with regard to the qualification of members,
but 1-hold it my duty to recommend to you, in the
interests of peace and in the interests of the Union,
the admission of every State to its share of the public
Legislature, when, however insubordinate, insurgent
or rebellious ita people may have been, it presents
itself, not only in an attitude of loyalty and harmony,
but in the persons of representatives, whose loyalty
cannot be questioned. Under the existing constituted
or legal test, it is plain that an indefinite orpenmutent
exclusion of aoy part of the country from representa
tion, must be attended by . a spirit of disquiet and
complaint, It is unwise and dangerous to pursue a
course of measures which will unite any large section
of the country against another section, no matter how
much the latter may predominate.
The course of immigration, the development of in
dustry and business, and natural causes will raise up
at the South aa devoted to the Union as those of any
part of the land; bnt if they are all excluded from
Congress; if, in a permanent statute they are doctored
not to be in full constitutional relations to tbe country,
they may think they have canto to become s unit in
feeling and sentiments against the government under
the political education of the American people. The
idea is inherent and ineradicable, but tbe consent of
tbe majority of the whole people is necessary to insure
a willing aequiesence in legislation. Tbe bill finder

It la hardly necessary for me to inform Congress
that, in my own judgement, most of these States—so
far at least as depends upon their own actions have
already been folly restored and are entitled to enjoy
their Constitutional rights as members of the Union,

THK IRON TRADE
The protectionists are clamoring for more protection
in every branch of business, either directly or indi
rectly. An increase of duty to not claimed of Con
gress, but such a modification of the internal revenue
ts^r* ndedaSwU1 bring « harmony with
tee tariff on that material. It Is affirmed byaLres-
pondent of The Nation that many branches of in-
nstiy are really now only saved from absolute de
struction by the premium on gold, the Infernal reve-
ST lev , ied °” »»» being so great as to exceed
the duty-on foreign imports of the same class if cur
rency were at par. With currency constantly tending
par, the anxiety of those engaged in them ia mtiu-
euough. “I should like to know what commercial
authority, native or foreign, has ever maintained
it is sound policy to extinguish branches of native in-
ustiy by taxation from which foreign products are
exempt?” This ia a plea put in for the benefit of the
iron-interest. The writer alleges that amongst the
factory ownere no large number are in tavor of in
crease in the present rate of duty, or who would op
pose any such reduction Sa would promise an in-
6re»se_ of revenue to the Government, provided the
“tiff were so adjusted as to maintain that equality be
tween the import duties and the internal taxes, which
economists of every school acknowledge to be both
just and necessary. “This done,” ssyg the writer,
‘they would certainly be content with such inciden
tal protection as s well adjusted tariff would give
them, whether their special interests were kept in
algM in forming it or not,” adding “that the Evening
Post, as the leading organ of the free traders, not un
naturally took advantage of the opportunity to point
to the large dividends lately declared by several cot
ton manufacturing companies. ” The writer comes to
this conclusion: “Let our revenue be raised, either by
tax or tariff, upon anutMng rather than coal or iron.
Let us have cheap railroads, mills, machines and im
plements. Tax the product but not tbe iron tools.
By thus cheapening iron you create a new demand
upon England for more product, and certain reBulta
must follow. Her metal workers are now paid higher
wages than in this country, but her miners are not.
Raise the wages of her miners by a largo and sudden
demand for the coarser forma of iron, now ao much
needed for the extension of our railroads, then spread
information among them by which they will l>e in
duced to use the means thus acquired to trans
fer themselves from the deep, unhealthy and
hardly-worked mines of England to the easily
worked surface mines of this country; and
when you have thus transferred a portion
of the mining population, the metal workers must fol-
follow. The mining industry of England to now
pressed to the utmost; a very slight additional de-
mand would ruse wages even to an extravagant point,
as the sudden demand upon Lancashire haa raised the
wages of the operatives in the cotton factories, and
with the means thus acquired, there cannot be a doubt
that such emigration might be induced aa forever to
equalize the cost of iron in England and the United
States. Remove ten per cent, of her mining popula
tion, and fifty years would not suffice for her to repair
Such iB tlie mode by-which the friends to the iron
iuterest propose to resuscitate that branch of the
national industry. It is by depleting England of her
iron workers and raising the wages of her miners that
the mining industry of the United States ia to acquire
an undisputed supremacy. But it must be “ a large
and sudden demand ” to produce the desired effect.
The coarser terms of iron are no doubt much needed
for the extension df our railroads, Ac., but how with
the balance of trade against the United States, they are
to succeed in producing so “great and sudden a de
mand ” lor iron aa to induce a large emigration of
miners is not so apparent. The simplest mode of
effecting the object would be to Improve dur currency,
to diminish ourigeneral imports, if we are unable;
from financial necessity, to lessen our taxes, both
direct and indirect
But this writer does not rely alone on artificial ex
pedients to maintain a competition with England in
the iron trade. He appeals for success to other causes
to the exhaustion of the English iron ores. He
quotes the following passage from the London Econo
“Of 136,000,600 tons of iron now raised throughout
the world. Great Britain produces eighty million and
"nlted States only twenty. But this is only be-
i We have had tbe first start, and because our po
pulation is tor denser, and because our iron and our
cool lie conveniently for each other, and conveniently
for carriage. As soon as America is densely peopled,
to America must both our iron and our coal suprema-
oy —and all involved therein—be transferred, for the
United States are in these respects immeasurably
richer than even Great Britain. Their coal flelda are
estimated at 196,000 square miles in extent, while ours
are only 5,400. But This is not all: their coal ia often
better in quality and incomparably more accessible
than ours, especially in the Ohio Valley. In some
places the coat at the pits’ mouth even now is two
shillings per ton in America, against six shillings in
Now, if the iron masters in the United States are to
wait for the combined effect of the exhaustion of iron
iu England and the density of population iu the United
States, the prospect is very remote of their success in
maintaining a competition with England.
The relief to the cotton manufacturer la not ' r
transfer of the English operatives, as id the iron-trade,
but by an adjustment of the internal revenue taxes to
the duties on imports so that an equality may be
maintained between the former and the latter. - “That
many branches of industry are really not 'only Saved
by the premium on gold, the internal Revenue taxes
levied on them being to great aa to exceed the duty on
foreign imports of the same class tf currency were
par,” ws can very readily conceive. But the remedy
- this is not to augment the duties on imp orts, but
reduce the internal revenue taxes.
