Mr. Frelinghuyscn moved to amend, so
as to make tbe reporting of the bill dis
cretionary with tbe Judiciary Committee.
Mr. Morton desired to teat tbe sense of
the Senate, directly, upon tbe question.
It was high time that Congress had de
fined iu position. To bis mind, tbe state
ol affairs, now existing in these rebel
communities, had never been more alarm
ing. Congress had, on tbe 2d. of March,
declared the existing governmenu iu
those Sutes as illegal and not affording
proper security for life and property j and
at that time Congress had piovided mili
Urv supervision, until sueh time a loyal

had set up, was obstructing the proper

declared supreme,
It would bo seen tbat Gen. Hancock,
in thl order, not only defied the power
of Congress, but actually nullified aud re
Infused to execute iu law. A General
Hancock has confronted directly the Con
grcis, it becomes a question as to which
side will submit. He recognises the at
thority of the civil tribanals, orgmibcd by
the very State governments which Con
gress has declared to be illegal.
There was danger that tbe work of recon
struction wouldlrsil by the very military power
which they had raised up to forward it. At
this crisis, it wss incumbent on Congreas to be
una and consistent to itself and prooaed to ab
rogate these Governmenu.
If the amendment of Mr. Frelinghovseo vrai"
adopted it would mean nothing. He (11 ) want
ed a peremptory order to this Committee to
bring iu a bill immediately, and be desired thi
Senate to so order.

it right that some confidence should oe ptaoaa
