. ... Th Deuwonttio papers have already
raise I the old war-cry of "nigger,"
in regard to the XVth Constitutional
Amendment, now tubinitted to .iio
Legislatures of the States formillea

Jrntiou" of Congress in. forcing Negro
luflraga upon the f,uoplj in opoMtiou

Anbithe eonuitutionality of Con

we-refor our readers to (he following
' .thuse 'of tho Constitution i

-Svorument, ami ohi'J prnioct eaeu ol
(nem against invaiion.
Here it Is expressly stated that no
State shall be permitted to have a furtn
i6f govcruracnt that is anti Republican.
Who is to determine the case? Man
ifestly Congress. Again,
". Aet. X. Tho Cougrws, whenever
two-thirdit of loth houses shall dcom
it necessary, shall propose amend
ments to this constitution, or, on the
application ot tho Legislatures ot two
, thirds of the several btate, elutll call
a convention for proposou: amend
' rotate, which, in cither cast, shall bo
rslidto all intents end purposes, a
part of this constitution, when ratified
by the Legislatures ot tho soveral
States, or by conventions in three-
fourths thereof, as the one or tho other
node of ratification may be provided
by ,tbe . Congrees; provided, that no
. amendment which may be made prior
id tho year one thousand eight hun
dred aud eight, shall in auy manner
anoctthe first ana fourtli clauses in
'the ninth section of tho Crst artio'e;
and that no State without its consent,
shall bo deprived oi its ciul suffrage
to the senate.
, Now, who wauts anythiug plainer
thauthis? Wheu you hear men talk
of tho usurpatioui of Congress, just
read tbqin this clause of the Cotwtitu
tion. - .
lint, lot us look at this question of
negro euOrago m itself. If it is right,
and If the couutry would bo benefitted
by Its adoption, th;t let us have it'.
tSo'me of the most, eonimon objections
against it are, as follows:
. It is aoiuuCunw frontcuded that the
N'egro is not a liftman being at all.
We have heard professing oliristiutis
urguo in tho sama way, while at the
samo timo they professed to believe the
bible1, which says that God "hath made
nf aha lifi-inil nil r.f iamu "
" " VMW w.ww. - . VIUII J W. (III. II.
' Such mou arji either hypocrites or very
ignorant, ' ,
Again, Deniocritio speakers and
writers are fond of picturing the dread
fill "mingling of tho races," the "mis
cogenation" that would follow the
adoption . of Ncjro suffrage. Raw
head and bloody hones! Now, we are
as much opposed to the mixture ol the
races as nny one ; and therefore we fa
vor Negro suffiago. It is very clear
that a state of suffrage for the black
man would bo just tho opposite of a
stato of slavery, and that what had
happened iu the latter case would uot
likely take place in the former. Now,
before tho war tho whole country
south of Mason fc Dixon's line was a
"great brothel," iu which every lust
and passion of fallen man hud full
sway. And what was tho result?
Just what might be expected the
races were fast becomiug one, and had
slavery continued fitly years longer
there would not have been a drop of
pure nativo white blood in the South
So damning was this lust that a minis
ter of high reputation in South Caro-
Una wrote a book,, favoring slavery,
could only be kept pure by providing
wave icomcn for the ymng mm ! The
people of the Sonth should thank tho
Republican party for overturning an
institution that was fast destroying
them. Slaves always multiply faster
than their masters, and a few more
years of slavery would have seen the
black man dominant iu the South.
' Now, if such results at t tended the
system of slavery ot tho blacks, cannot
' any reasonable mau expect that con
trary results would follow the adop
tion of a contrary system ? No doubt
'Democracy lorigs for a . return to ula
very, that - miscegenation might be
practiced. It is plainly seen that
. sihos tho . Negroes became free, this
tefrlble crime Lbwioinin less and less
freqnen luul in those Slates where the
JTpgift vbtei lt is hardly known; ''
. tWmts' assert that the Negro Is an
inferior being. This we readily' admit;
and so also the Gorman and the Irish
is Inferior to tho Angl'u Saxon ; so is
the roaJ , who wallows in the gutter
inferior to1 the oub who walks by him,'
erlcfin' the manhood of temperance.
irwi matca' distinction Itt ;i!lo.' cMtctTlii''itLL..V ,J i,f
case, should we not also ia the other?
There is. on thing that has always
made us doubt whether the Negro is
really inferior to the white man : We
lay it down as a maxim, that where
two raoes como in contact for any
length of tiure, the superior race will
preserve its orjginulity, and the infe
rior race will adopt tho customs and
laugnao of the superior. Any man
who has traveled in the South knows!
that the whites invariably uso the Nu
gro lingo, and in u great 1 measure
have adopted the custotus and manners
of tho bla-ika. Why is tliisT Let
him who can, answer.
1 or long years wo boasted that in
this country enry man is frw, while
we not only deuied tho freedom, but
even tho manhood, of one purtinu 'of
our jjopulation. Well might the hnn-
M, hVry Irishinan say,
'Xciir dnvrn tho ll.iuatio lis." '
Young Democrats speak at contests
and commencements of universal, lib
crty and the l ilit uJ'nll men to bo free,
becuuse they know that such is the
teachings of tho bihle and of education ;
ami kan li.t,urn o.t ailuiu
auinst Negro suffrage. Men who
who profess to obey tho golden rule,
utter their bitter invectives against
their fellow man, merely because his
skin is black. Sleek laced pharisees
I ill up meek eyes to heaven and cay,
"btuud by thyself, black man, I am
holier than thou," aud go thence to u
low groggfy, and corrupt the young
men who gather uboutthem by telling
tho lowest, vulgar tales that ever
found expression in brothel. We cau
poiut to such iucu.
It in argued that tho adoption of
Negro suffrage would degrade the
white race. Who arguo thus? Meu
who nro engaged in preaching that
gospel which cau alone refine the race ?
or those engaged iu the cause of educa
tion? No, you Cmd them to be the
lowest, specimens of humanity, men
who are doing inoro to degrade the
white race t!au all tho negroes com
bined could do,
Is it not patent to every one that
since tho hopo of freedom iu its true
sense has been cherished by tho Negro,
ha baa improved himself'.' A few
years ago they were generally worthless
and ; improvident, , shunning1 work.
Nqw they are among, the meet indus
trious of our citizens. ' They huvo ad
vanced faster since tho war than the
white race. It is idle to say he is not
fit to voto, wheu we see white men
selling their votes for a drink of whis
key. y.
. We would liko l continue this fur
ther, hut havo not room. Tho argu
ments u ion this iUcstiou have become
familiar to all. We have been charged
with cowardice for nok syoucr speak
ing upon this subjects) This will
probably dispose of that charge.
Negro suffrage is a coming reality.
Soon the Constitutional Amendment
wil bo adopted by the requisito num
ber of Slatcs, and the, thing settled.
For one, we shall be heartily glad
that the everlasting "NStigor" 'ia soon
to bo driven out of politics. Wfth the i
spirit of the Declaration of lu'lepen
deuce fully carried out iu tho giving to
all men eijaal riglifj. we shall look
to see our country gou to occupy the
greatest positio'rf in the world, and to
remain undivided till the end of time.
Any person who may bo fond of a

ture and wvnlth. Ho has been for
somo tiino Vita PiWt of tho Union
League of IMiiladelphia. While not
an nctivo political), he has always tar

arc not politicians, say the appointment
is one of the best that could havo been
made from tho State.
Tho BcleetioiMif Gov. Cox for the
Interior, gives general satisfaction. In
fact this is unanimous, except with
those who opposed his course when
Johnson broke with Congress. Rut
all concede him ability and an honesty
which eminently fit him to do the
work expected of him, in breaking
down the land speculators and the In
dian thieves.
Tho choice of cx-Senator Cress well,
of Maryland, for Postmaster General,
gives general satisfaction. I I'm entire

Ono second at a time has formed
the world's history within six thous
and years. Thus in every avenue of
thought in which we turn, atoms of
flutter build towering heights, stretch
iu bound Ks plaius, or sweeping along
tho surging wuves of time, pil . up
mountains of greutnow, or scatter their
debris in inglorious strife.. Thus man,
frufl mau, in imitation tf ' nature's
iinTgJtier power, nttehipts lo rule the
world of thought by letter, word, or
sentence wrought. Rut of all the
wordy conllicts of pen and paper, the
strifo of imaginative, stago struck he
roes, tho vast piles of' literary compo
sition that are weekly turned out upon
the world, is the moving wonder of the
present hour. Of this vast concourse,
this passing panorama of'life, this liv
iug,surging,scethingcaldFon of anima
ted matter; how much, wo ask, of all
this buiy, bustling throng of thought
will hfj worthy to survive tho moment
that cafls it forth? How many of tho
writers that served-1 whilo away our
a nouarjiava really cast a gram
etjlaud n)on the mountain of discov
ered" thought, or cast a single drop of
water iotc; tho world's literary ooc3n?
How many miudi that JDPJJ1 ' struggle
so valiautly for tho immortal wreath
to crowu tho victor's brow, will realty
outlive the scraps of paper that serve
to advertise their names. And yet
without this attrition of mind, this
constant grappling of thought, this ac
tivity of the present ago tho world
would sink into the listless . ionenity
oPthe dark ages; nay worso as our
elevation is greater, our fall would be
deeper, our shame more debasiug.
Although much mattoi may bo thrown
on the mountain sido of truth only to
be washed away, pcrhap3 a single
grain may weld itself to tho living
mass of solid, patient, silent thought; a
single idea, which renewing its vigor
in eternal youth will serve as tho touch
stone or well spring to invigorate and
refresh tho explorers of truth along the
dusty highway of uudisoovered science.
, Thus tha ' humblest, as well as the
more powerful thinkers and writers of
the age, hope to embalm their name
on the roll of the "immortal few iliat
are not born to die." ' : 6. V. D.
