We cannot close our eyes to the fact that there stil
remains a radical fanaticism in the North that would
subvert the great principles of sell-goverument if not
checked, couquon-d and controlled. We must, how
ever. take for our watchword, “The Union and the
Constitution of ®ur fathers “—the “Union* being
tbe paramount good, and the “ Constitution ” our
guide—and if rampant fanaticism should seek to sub
vert the former or mutilate the latter, let us, iu com
mon with our conservative brethren of the North, East
and West, rally to the support of the one and the
defense of the other, assured that the indissoluble
union of these States, and free government, under the
Constitution as it is, will reward our efforts. I mean
not to threaten or defy, but if I understand the spirit
of our people north and south, 1 feci justilicd in
assuiniug that the Union of our fathers is the design
and j'urjKise of all jiatriotic hearts, and that auy pur-
]NMe to transfer the j»uwcrs of this government or its
control by constitutional aim mlmeuts or otherwise to
the African or negro race will involve us iu a contlict
which in comparison with the late struggle will ho but
child s play, liuuianijy shudders at the bear mention
ui such a conflict.
This is our land; these are onrhomes. Beneath the
soil on which we tread lie burned our ancestors, and
th»* graves of our children are not yet sodden over
w iUi grass, and by their side lain would we have our
remains interred, and woe to the man who would dis
inherit us of our birthright and appropriate it to the
use and benefit of a foreign aud barbarous race. Wo
in list control in obedience to the Constitution and the
laws made thereunder to the exclusion ol all burbariuu
races, but let us not forget that the African race
among us must be protected iu their persons aud
phijHirtj. Our laws must lx* wise, just and equal, and
our people must obey them, iu letter and spirit. Fur
ther we cannot go. And if those who assume to legis
late lor us on this question will insist upon turning
over our government to the African race, then wc pre
dict, a revolution with incalculable ills to both races,
the last grand death struggle of libert}' on the Ameri
can continent. May God, iu liis mercy, avert such a
calamity ! i trust our people yet have nerve enough
to meet the emergency. I have not thought it im-
proper for me to say this much upon a subject to me
clad iu gloomy fore boding* and apprehenaious; for tbe
assassination of our ohief magistrate or any success
ful etlort, unconstitutionally, to change our Govern
ment, one or both of which seems to be tbe purpose
of a powerful party at the north, would, beyond doubt,
produce such a result. 11 such a contest be forced

The Legislature of Maasachnsetts haagsHre strange

between the President and tho Radicals. I wrote in
my last letter that resolutions were presented im
mediately upon the promulgation of the President*s
veto message and other Resolutions when he made hia
speech on tho 22d ultimo. Thaw ware referred to the
Committee on Federal Relations, and after sovera
days two series were reported by that committee to the
House. Meanwhile tho excitement had somewhat
abated. They were not immediately discussed, hut
were assigned for the Sth iustant. Day after day
passed, and almost every day there w<we notices of
amendments to be made to them wh<» ^hey came up.
They earn© op yesterday, and a greift m&y amend

and were nearly all more conservative in tone h.mh

committee. The following, the first of which was of

VALEDICTOBY OF SPEAKER HaBDEMAN.
Gentlemen of the House of Representatives:
The hour for our adjournment has arrived, tho
duties that have devolved upon us have been dis
charged, whether for good or evil the future must de
termine. It should be a source of profound gratitude
to that Being who has shaped our destiny, that the
icy hand of death has not stricken a member of this
General assembly, while mauy of our fellow citizens
have fallen asleep in death. The circumstances that
surrounded us at our msetiug have been somewhat
changed, the provisional government under which wo
met, has ceased, and we udjourn to-day under
a Governor, elected by the sovereign voice
of the people of our State. The same cloud
however, that overspread our horizon and threatened
us with its fury—still blackens our political sky- and
though ever »ud anon the sunlight breaks through its
curtained glo«>m, betokening the glory of a brighter
day—it s* un o’er doodad and all is dark agaifl. The
8-orin of war has passed, yet the echo of its murmur-
lugs fall upon the ear, aud the evideuces of its fury
are manifest in the desolation that marks Its sweep.—
Where we turn, ruin darkens our prospects, and
desolation saddens us with the fatality of its b’iglit
Onr people bow in sorrow and in sadness—“for the
fields of lfeshbon languish and the vine of Sibiniuali,"
withers and dies. The fruitful fields, the cultivated
valleys, the cottage home aud the city palace—evi
dence today, the heart-sickening ravages of a mighty
revolution—as it was unto Tyre, so it has been unto
us, “iu the city is left desolation aud the gate is smit
ten with destruction.”
“Yet though, destruction, sweep onr lovely plains,
Rise fellow men, our ‘manhood yet remains,’ "
And if wc are but true to ourselves, true to tbe great
principles of civil liberty, true to the rnagna chart* of
our rights, the Constitution of our country, to the in
domitable will, the irrepressible energy, manly integ
rity utid commendable zeal, that lias ever character
ized our people, “it is not yet a very little while aud
Lebauou shall be turned into a fruitful field.” The
wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad
and the desert shall rejoice uud blossom us the
rose.” To accomplish these ends yonr legislation
has been directed, you have provided as liberally
as your capacities would allow, for the wants
of your destitute poor, have properly appreciated the
helpless condition of our manned and wounded sol
diery, have guarded with commendable fidelity, the
rights and lpterests of our former slaves, have passed
liberal laws to developc the vast resources of our
State, her mineral wealth, her mechanical abilities,
her manufacturing powers, und now with convictions
of duty discharged, you go hem e to the more agree
able and profitable avocations of civil life aud domes
tic engagements. Think not, gentlemen, your labors
are over you but enter a wider and more faithful field.
Here, you contended only with your own prejudices.
There you should exert your (towers and the inttuenca
of your position to correct the passions vi the hour
aud to h irqjonize your people with the surroundings
of the present. Exhort them to patience, to forbear
ance, und a manly submission to the authorities that
Teach them the lessons of harmony, and implore
them by all that is dear in the present and ho)>cfill in
the future, to unite their energies in the support of a
common deatiuy and a eouniiou country. From
every quarter of onr Stab* comes the cheering news
of the acceptance by our people of the results at the
revolution aud the restoration policy of tho chief
executive of the Union.
We are engaged to-day in a great conflict with Ama-
lek for political salvation aud national existence. Our
political Moses has lifted lip his bauds so far Israel has
triumphed; but those hands are now heavy—heavy
with the responsibilities of his position, heavy with
the weight of a nation's redemption and the per
petuity of the Republic, and unless, like Aaron aud
Hur, we stay up his hands until the going down of the
sun. the Amulekites will prevail aud civil liberty and
republican institutions panic-stricken at the madness
of the hour, and the malignity of embittered hate,
will leave the world to despotism and misrule. Go
forth then to your people in view of the mighty in
terests at stake, with words of counsel upon your lips.
Teach them the necessity of a commendable patience,
a forgiving spirit, a manly loyalty, au active co-opera
tion with the authorities of the government in restor
ing peace, order aud civil government to our distract
ed country. Tell them—though thoy are sojourning
in tho wilderness of Shur, with its Hark shadows, its
mantling gloom, its forest shades, its dangerous ma
zes—they shall not yet be given over to destruction.
true they drink none of Maruh's waters, em
bittered by the sad recollections of the past and the
evils of the present, are true to themselves, they may
yet repose beneath the palm trees of Elim and in
peaceful security encamp by her wells of waters.
Cease not your labors lor the good of your people;
‘Learn to do well, seek judgment, relieve the op
pressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow,"
and when your race is run, wheu the aim of your
existence shall go down in death, the glory of his
beams will long Unger with those who have honored
you with their confidence and support. My connec
tion with you now closes, perhaps forever. With you
my ass4»ciation8 have beeu of the most agreeable
nature, M ud now, in severing them for a season, let wc
tender you tbe acknowledgments of a grateful heart
">r the uniform kindness and courtesy you have ex-
•ndod to mo as your presiding officer, and for the
generous confidence that lius characterized your
official conduct. I have endeavored, gentlemen, to
discharge the duties of my position faithfully aud im
partially, Mud if Jn their performance I have wounded
a feeling or stirred one unpleasant emotion, rest
assured, it waa an error of tbe head, not of the heart.
To each of you 1 tender a God-speed to the constituents
that have honored you, and ths family and friends that
welcome you home, invoking upon you tho fostering
care and protection of Him whose kind providence has
thus far preserved you amid all the ills of life, and
wishing you, individually, health, happiness and long
life, I bid you farewell, and adjourn this House with
out a day.

—The Free School which has Just been re-organi/.od
in Macon, under the auspices of Col. Whittle, Presi

Rewloed, That we are not unmindful of the patriotic
course of the President at the outset and during the
continuance of the late civil war, nor of the services
rendered aud sacrifice* borue by him during tbe re
bellion ; and wc trust that, by tbe exercise of the samo
qualities of wisdom and firmness which made hun
stand by the Union in its great peril, aud by a course
of prudence and conciliation, the existing differences
between Congress and the President may be harmon
ized and adjusted, and a way found lor the return of
the States lately in rebellion to their proper practical
relations to the Union, consistently with a just dis
charge of our obligations to the freedmen, aud the
security of the liberties and rights of all the peopln
under the Constitution.
Resolved, That the people of Massachusetts have
entire confidence in the patriotism of the President of
the United Htrites, and in the members ofthe Congress
of the United States, that no efforts on their part will
be spared to restore peace and harmony amoug tho
several States on a sure and lasting basis, in accord
ance with the great principles of the Constitution.
So many amendments were offered, and there was
such a diversity of opinion apparaut that the con
sideration of the vexed question, after a lengthy dis-
-cussion, was still further postponed. I suppose that
pretty radical resolutions will finally be passed, though
I very much doubt that they yvill contain a censure of
the President, while a very respectable piinority favor
indefinite postponement of the whole subject.
The great eveut of the week iu this section of the
country has been the discovery ofthe murderer of the
Joyce children, in Roxbury woods, last June. I gave
yon the particulars at the time. Two children, a girl
of 12 years and a boy of 10 years, while strolling in
the woods, were foully murdered, and their mutilated
bodies accidentally discovered some days afterwards.
The girl had been ravished. No clue was discovered
to the murderer until quite recently. Several suspi
cious people were arrested and examined without
furnishing a hint Rewards aramiptlng to £5,000 or
£6.000 were offered. AH the detectives about here
were on the case. It was one of those horrible crimes
which, thrill every heart. What motive could there
be to kill innocent children ? Every parent felt tha
the safety of his darlings waa menaced. The murdrr
has finally beeu traced home to a desperado now serv
ing a sentence for burglary iu our Ntaje Prison.
Is is supposed that he was born in this city, of
Spanish uud American parents. His first name
was said to be Kolia Ampudia. He was taken
from an asrium iu Boston when four years of age, aud
adopted bVTl family in the country- When 13 years
old fie went to sea, and afterwards led a wild roving
life. It is reported tliat at the breaking out of hostili
ties he was serving a sentence for murder in Charles
ton 8. C. He was pardoned out of prison, and went
into the Confederate army. Ho accompanied Morgan
on his raid into Indiana, and was captured on the re
turn while trying to escape pursuit by swimming the
Ohio. Afterwards he was paroled at Annapolis, and
entered the Union army. He has also served on seve
ral gunboats. He had many aliases. After the mur
der of th*;^ Joyce children he wandered about the
country disguised as an old man. He is but 27 years
of age. After he was suspected, the final links in the
case were discovered by a detective who wen tto prison,
lived on prison fare, submitted to prison discipline,
was cropped, and clothed iu parti-colored garb, and
became the companion of -the prisouor. who had never
given any name except “Scratch Gravel ” since his ar
rest for burglary. The defective learned some things
but the fellow was very closo. Since charged with the
crime, be has wilted like a broken cabbage-leaf, re
fuses Ins food, and has tried to break his head against
the granite walls of liis solitary coll. This ruffian’s
case will probably go before the grand jury next
month, and if the evidence is conclusive he will swing,
to the delight of all lovers of law and order. A harder
villian cannot be found within the lour seas.
The first of the series of receptions by the Boston
Art Club was given last Wednesday evening at Horti
cultural Hall, one of the elegant buildings which have
l>een erected in Boston during tho war. In previous
years the receptions have Decs given in the Studio
Building <>n Tremont street, the studios being thrown
open to the crowds of gay visitors. This plan had one
advantage—the visitors were enabled to obtain
glimpses of the dens where the artists did their work,
and generally to see not only Hie finished pictures but
also the studies aud sketches iu their crude state. But
ou the whole, considering these receptions are at-
texded by crowds, it is better to have them in a large
hall, where certain representative pictures can be •
brought together aud comfortably looked at by alL A
.smaller hall below was used for tiinmbiug of superflu
ous garments, lor this was a dreif occasion, and the
paintings were surrounded very properly by the
charms of music, flowers and female loveli
ness. Tho pictures were rauged ou the walls and
were numerous enough to cover nearly all the avail
able spaco. None of them, perhaps', were of striking
excellence; mauy were rather inferior, but criticism
under the circumstances would scarcely be fair, and
so seemed to tliiuk the numerous art-lovers of Bos.
ton who attended the reception. Boston has a large
number of citizsus qualified by study, travel aud
culture to appreciate aud judge of art. A real “Her-
bouian" would tell you how much a head of all the
other cities of America, Boston is in this respect, but
you will excuse mo, if I, believing that “comparisons
are odorous,” decline to admit any such thing. 1
know that it is common to say that Boston is se
vere and exacting; hut I know also that there are
many mxKllch w ho belong to the tun, and undertake
to express opinions. However, let that rest while
1 say a few words more about the reception.
Nearly all the best artists of the city belong
fe the club, und they were generally represented at the
reception. Among those whoso works graced the walls
were Gerry, Young, Griggs, M. W. Brackett, E. A
Brackett, Brown, iianiiqett Billings, Norton, Russ,
Urdway, Uodgdou, Copeland, Codman, Barry, Jfrez,
zell, Hording, E. T. Billings, Scott, Carpenter, Hart
well, Bricher. Miss d. Stetson, Hyde, Mrs. Murry, Hig
gins, Fletcher. Curtis, Freeman, Pratt, Boring, and
many others, dome of these names are quite familiar,
while their works are well known. The best signs of
promise, however, were found iu the works of artists
least known. There does seem to b* a chance for a
hope that the age of imitation ill art is passing away,
und that by and by there will be an American schooL
Is it not absurd for our artists to go to 'Rome and
Florence to copy paintings and sculpture all their
lives wheu Nature has so many lessons unlearned ? I
have little patience with those who call themselves
ai ti*U, who gain applause by making op pictures out
of shreds and nutohes of European galleries. Our
younger artists begin to feel u Uuw impulse* I hope
it will provu to bo a command to start out into a new
and fresh field iu perfect harmony wtlh the age.
. The Legislature of Massachusetts lias many hobbies,
but that ol the prohibitory liquor j aw j s the most in
teresting among those of a local nature. This is one
of its main columns of support. It stands over against
Sambo, who is the other famous caryatid ■which helps
to support the temple of the party. The prohibitory
law is au element of great strength in tbe rural dis
tricts. Every school district has its T >tal-Abstinence
Society, with u le.w Ciceros and Plutarchs to keep it iu
u perpetual state of excitement. These forces united
uml completely organized make a power which the
politicians are obliged to bow to. Every Republican
politician in Massachusetts, who hopes for office, is
expected to get dow'u ou his marrow-hours aud cry
“Great is Diana of the Ephesians!” This naturally
breeds hypocracy; for a good many of ttiefe same poli
ticians are “jolly good fellows” when out of leading
strings. We never had had a Total-Abstinence
Governor thut I am aware of. Governor Bulloch is a
gouifemau who likes aud graces tne festive circle,
where the wine passes freely. Governor Andrew is a
good liver, whose jovial paunch is a standing argu
ment against asceticism. Banks kuows the beauties
of the matutinal cocktail and the midnight punch.
Gardner, who to conciliate the tsmperauc* element,
declared himself “a temperance uiau of fourteen
years’ standing,” lias the reputation of a bon viraat.
it is barely possible that Boutwell never drank any
thing but milk and water. Tho appearances favor
that theory, and I will not go behind them, but he sat
in the Governor’s chair before the Maine Law was
enacted in this State. But I am away oat at 'sea. I
was going to tell you how the total abstainers are now
situated. They have nassed the co^ahnlarv
*w. wtich v«. u.**r.xS,
of now fifty mi u. for tbe b*ttor vijbrve-
mentof the law* ; hut they‘find tint that is not
enough to do the business. The chief of Police
of the city of Boston was recently celled before e Leg-
Islstit e committee, end, in his sietenfonl expressed
the opinion tint the number oMmuor aaioons was m
Urge as ever in the city. He thought public opinion
