Wahiiinoton. Jail. 7.—The Presi dent returnedtothe Senate this morning | the District Suffrage bill, with the fob j lowing Message, stating his objections < thereto : To t he Senate of thr Vnittui Stofet : j I have received and considered a bill i entitled “An act to regulate the elective j franchise of the District ol Columbia," j • a-x d by the Senate on the 13th of .N eeinbcr, and by the House of Rcpre- j I*eutativos on the succeeding day. It I was presented for my approval on the j 261 h ultimo— six days after the ad- ; I journment of Congress— and is now re- ' ! turned with my objections to the Sen- j j ate, iu which house it originated, j Measures bavins been introduced, at iho commencement of lho first session I of the present Congress, for the exten

‘ sum ol the elective franchise to persona jof color iu the District of Columbia, j steps were taken by the corporate ou | (hurdles of Washington and George town to ascertain and make known the 1 j opinion of he people of the two cities | upon a subject so immediately affecting | j there welfare ns a community. The i j '| nest ion was submitted to the people at ; >p e'ml elections, held in the month of | December, 1805, when the qualified { voters of Washington and Georgetown, | itli great unanimity of sentiment, ex- ' pressed themselves opposed to the con templated legislation. In Washington, in a vote of C,55C — the largest, with but two exceptions, ever polled iu that city—only thirty five ballots were cast lor negro suffrage; while in Georgetown, in an aggregate <d 813 votes —a number considerably in excess of the average vote at the four preceding annual elections—but one was given iu favor of the proposed extension of the elective franchise. As these elec tions seem to have been conducted with entire fairness, the result must be ac cepted as a truth lul expression of the opinion of the people of the District upon the question which evoked it. Possessing, as an organized commu nity. the same popular right as the in habitants of a State or Territory, to make known their will upon matters which affect their social* and political condition, they could have selected no more appropriate mode of memorializing Congress upon the subjoct of this bill than through the suffrages of their quali fied voters. Entirely disregarding the wishes of the people of the District of Columbia, Congress has deemed it right and expe dient to pass the measure now. submit ted for my signature, it, therefore, becomes lho duty of the Executive, standing between tho legislation of tho one and the will of the other, fairly ex pressed, to determine whether ho should upprovo the bill, and thus aid iu placing upon the statute books of the nation u law, ugsiuttl which the people to whom it is to apply have solemnly and with such unanimity protested, or whether he should return it with bis objections, in tho hopo that, upon reconsideration. Congress, acting as the representatives of the inhabitants of the scat of govern ment, will permit them to regulate a purely local question, us to them may seem befct suited to their interests and condition. The District of Columbia was ceded to the United States by Maryland and Virginia, iu order th;.t it might become tho permanent seat of government of the United Slates. Accepted by Con gress, it at once became subject to the “exclusive legislation” for which provi i ion is made iu the Federal Constitu tion. It should bo borne in mind, how ever, that in exercising its functions as the law making power of the District o’* Columbia, the National Legislature is not without limit, but that CouurosH is bouud to observe the letter and spirit of the Constitution, as well in the en actment of local laws for the seat of government, as in the legislation com mon to the whole Union. Were it to be admitted thnt thelffght “to exercise exclusive legislation in all c’u ■ whatsoever,” conferred upon Congress unlimited power in the l>is trictof Columbia, titles Of nubility might 1 be granted within its boundaries; laws might be nude “respecting’no estab lishment of religion, or prohibiting tho i free exercise thereof; or abridging the J freedom of speech or of the press, or the , right of tho people peaceably to assem- ! blc and to petition (no Government for ‘ a redress of grievaiWen." Dcsjoti*m j would thus reign at the seat of’govern- I ment of a free Republic, and us a place • f permanent residence, it would be . avoided by all who prefer the blessings of liberty to the mere emoluments of I official position*. It should also bo remembered (hat iu i legislating -Jor the District of Columbia, under the Federal Constitution, the re lation of Congress to its Inhabitants i* analogous to that ol a Legislature to the people of a State under their own local constitution. It docs not, therefore seem to he asking too much that, in matters pertaining (p the District, Con gress should have a like respect for (ho 1 will utid interests of Its inhabitants as in 1 entertained by a State Log ini fi tore for j the wishes aud prosperity of those for j whom they legislate. The spirit of our Constitution nnd ' the genius of oar government require \ that, in regard to any law which is to ! affect aud have a permanent hearing | upon a people, their will should exert at j least a reasonable influence upon those who are acting in the capacity of their j legislators. Would, fur iimtunc'*. the ! Legislature of the State, of New York, or of Pennsylvania, or of Indiana, or of any State in the Union, iu opposition (o j the expressed will of a large majority of | (he people whom they wore chosen to I represent, arbitrarily force upon them, ; us voters, all persons of the African or i negro nice, and make them eligible for ! office, without any other qualification j than a certain term of residence within . tho .Stale ? Tn neither of the States named would I the colored population, when acting to- 1 ! gether, he able to produce any greir o ! j ejal or political result. Yet, in New j York, before bo cun vote, the man of i j color must fulfil conditions that are not, I required of the white citizen ; iu JVnu j j sylvania. the elective franchise is res | d ieted to white freemen ; while in In- I i diuna negroes and nmlattoes are express i ly excluded from tho right of suffrage. : It hardly seems consistent with t!m j ! principle* of right and justice that rep resentatives of States where suffrage 1 either denied the colored man, or j led to him on qualification* requiring intelligence or property, should compel the people of tho District of Columbia j to try an experiment which their own constituents have thus far shown an ; j mi willingness to test for themselves.— : i Nor docs it accord with our republican j ideas that the principles of self-govorn- 1 ment should lose its force when applied j i to the residents of the District, merely , J because their legislators arc not. like t j those of the States, responsible, through I the ballot, to the people for whom they 1 j are thedaw making power, i The President pursues this lone of 1 argument at some length, and then mys: ! It cannot be urged that the proposed extension of suffrage in tho District, of i Columbia is necessary to enable per sons of color to protect either their in terests or their rights. They stand hero precisely os they stand iu Pennsylvania, | Ohio and Indiana. Here, as elsewhere, j in all that pertains to civil rights, there . is nothing to distinguish this class of persons from citizens of the United States fur they possess the “full and equal benefit of all laws and proceeding for the security of person aud property as is enjoyed by the white citizens, and are made “subject to like punish ment, pains and penalties, and to none other, any law, statute, ordinance, teg. i ulutiou or custom lu the contrary not withstanding.” Nor, us has been as sumed, are their suffrages necessary to aid a loyal sentiment here ; for local governments already exist of undoubted fealty to die Government, and are suv- | tuiued by communities which were a- i mong the first to testify their dovotiou j to the Union, and which during the struggle furnished their full quotas of j men to the military service of the couu- I try. ♦ • * a lu returning this hill to the ScuaU, I deeply regret that there should be apy conflict of opinion between the Legisla tive and Executive Deportments of the Government in regard to measures that vitally affect the prosperity and peace of the country. Scarcely desiring to reconcile tho States with one another, and the whole people ul the Government of the Uuited States, u lias been my earnest wish to co-operate with Congress iu all measure* having for fchnir object a proper and complete of the questions resulting from our Into civil war. Harmony bet weeu the co-ordinate branches of the Government, always necessary for the public welfare was never more demanded than at the pres ent lime, ami it will iherofore be my constant aim to promote, as far ns possi ble, concert of notion between them.— * The d ffereocta o!' (pinion that .b#t| ready occured hare rendered me only | (he more cautious, lest the j£xocutive should encroach upon any of the prero gatives of Congress, exceeding, iu any manner, the oonatitutioDjd limit of bia duties, destroy the euuiliCrium which should exist between the several co-ordinate departments, and which is so essential to the harmonious working of the Government. 1 know it has been urged that the Executive depnrimenl inwove likely to enlarge the vphero of its aet&u than ci- • her of the other two brunches of the Government, ana c*pu<'i.l!y in the cxer ftiso of the veto potter conferred upon it b y the Constitution. It ehoald bo re tuitfui lured. however, that thin power is wholly itivo and conservative in its j diameter, and was intended to operate n* a check upon unconstitutional, nasty. I and improvident leg* a1 at ion, and as n mean* of protection against iovanion of tho just powers of the Executive uud Judicial X)vprrtinciits. It is remarked by Chancellor Kent that to •'Cmict lavs i u transcendent pottor; and, if tho brkly that posmysen it ho a full and representation of the people, there is danger of its pres sing with destructive weight upon all the other pnrtu of the machinery of gov ernment. It ha*, therefore, been thought necessary, by the most skillful and expeHenood artists in the science I of divil polity, that strung barriers should be erected lor the protection and security of the other necessary powers of the ( i overo moot. Nothing has been deemed more fit and expedioat for tho pnrj *c than the provision the head of tho Execu tive Department should be so coustitu j fed as to secure a requisite share of in- I dependence, licit he should have a ne gative (upon the passing of laws; and that the judiciary power, rusting on a ! ‘‘till more permanent Uimh. should have ■ tho right of deter milling upon the valid ; tty ol laws by the tUiudard of the | Uouiititutiou." j The President than refers to tho no j ccseity of some check in the hands of the Executive. lie quotes extensively i from sou, Jefferson, Mr. Justiue ; Story, and concludes as follows : In addition to what ha* been said by ! these distinguished writers, it may also I bo nrgd that tin* dominant party in ! each House may, by ihe expulsion of a j sufficient number of members, or by iho exclusion from representation of n j mjnisite number of States, reduce the ; minority to lest than one-third. Con I gross, by these means, might be ena l bled to pass n law, the objections of the j President to the contrary nnlwitlistan i din?. which whuld tender impotent flic 1 other two departments of the Govern ■ incut ; and make inoperative thb whole some ami restraining power which it , was intended by tho framers of the 1 j ronstilutroa should be exerted by them This would boa practical concentration of all power in the (Congress of the Uni ted J^taHea—this, in the language of the author of the Deri erst inn of Indepen donee, would be “precisely the defini tion of de.spotld Government.” I have preferred *o reproduce these teachings of the greut statesmen and constitutional lawyers of the early and later days of the Itcpublic rather than to rely simply upon an expression of my own opinion*. We to often ro j uut to them, espf< wily at n conjuncture | like tho preflent. Their ppHcatioo to •*ur actual condition is so apparent that 1 they WWW come to us s a living voice. ! 1 to be listened to with more attention \ I than at any previous period of our hU* i lory. We have been nod are yet in the ; midst of popular commotion. The passions aroused by a great civil | war arc still dominant, it is not n time i favorable to that calm and deliberate I j judgment which U the only salV guide | when radical changes in onr institutions 1 are to be made. The measure new be- j ! fore me. is one of those changes. It I initiates an untried experiment for a I . people who have said, with one voice, 1 j that it is not for their good. This alone ! should make us pause, but it is not all. | I The experiment has not been tried, or i I so much as demanded by the people of ( j the several States for themselves. j ' lu bat few of the States has aach an • inuovaliou been allowed as giving the * ballot to the colored population without 1 any other qualification than *, residence of one year, and in most of them the | denial of the ballot to this race Li nhao j lata, ni:d by fundamental luw placed bo i yond tho ordinary legialation. In mast | of those States the evil of such suffrage | would ho partial; but small at it would be, is is guarded by constitutional bar i riera. Hero tho innovation assumes , formidable proportions, which may ea sily grow to such an extent as to make the white population u cubordioato ele ment iu tho body politic. After full deliberation upon this mea sure, I cannot bring myself to approve it) even upon local considerations, nor yet as the beginning of an experiment on a larger scale. J yield lo no one in attachment to that ruin of general ■ suf frage which distinguishes our policy o u nation. Hut there is a limit, wisely observed hitherto, which makes tho bal lot a privilege and a trust, and which requires of some classes a time suitable for probation and preparation. To giro it indiscriminately to u now claan, wholly unprepared, by previous habits ami upport doilies, in perform the trust which it demands, is to degrade it, 4tyd finally to destroy its power ; far it uw) bt softly assume d that no political truth is better established than that such indiscriminate and all embracing •trdciiKron of popular suffrage must (ml at lost in its deatruotiou.
