PRESIDENT JOHN SON ON HIS TOUR. At Raleigh, his native city, the President made a short: speech the other day, and said in the course of it In entering this city my mind involuntarily wan- dered back to the time when I left its streets a penniless and inexperienced boy to make my way in.' the world. When I went out from among you, and from the time I became connected with politics, I laid down as my rule a conscientious performance of duty and adopted the Constitution of my country as my ii, guide; and by these, whether in prosperity or adversity I have always been guided and controlled and come weal or woe, in high places or low places, with the Constitution as my guide with my hand laid on the altar of my country, I will leave these great principles for those who are to follow. One of my leading tenets has been the prosperity of the great mass of the people, holding that all persons, without regard to condition or colour, should be esteemed according to their intrinsic merit or worth, leaving each to rise en his own merit, courage, and energy. Let this be the standard, so that to every one may be assigned his true position. I trust and hope, instead of discussing party issues, creating factions between North, South, East, or West, that all will exert themselves to the restoration of the union of these States, so that thrs flag may float over a contented and prosperous people. Let us, my friends, repair the breaches made by the war, and restore the Union. This being accom- plished, we may then make such issues as the public prosperity and safety may demand. Let us efface from our minds the memory of the past; let us pour oil on the troubled waters, and restore peace to the States. This has been my constant object.
