The Inquirer of la-: week announces
the adoption of the Fifteenth Amend
ment, wi'h the statement that the
DcKHxrats tia %e practically abandoned
their opposition to that hiiqalioos
mcu.-ure and are now paying court to
the n-/gr". It declares that theDramc
racy '"are on the track of the colored
voters with aii their hollow arguments
an I vi j fcej machinations in the hope
of them into the support of
their tickets."'
We are gratified to know that the
Inquirer has plucked up courage to in
form its readers that the Fifteenth A
nwndooent he-- become "a part of the
Constitution,''and thai the citizenship :•
of the colored man iia.- been officially
pr claimed." The disbelieving Radi
cals of Bedford county w ill hardly con
flnnetodisputea fact acknowledged by
t : oir own organ. They will now be j
compelled to confer.- that their party
hare ft/reel NEGRO SUFFRAGE up
'>-t *ht country without giving the people
on opportunity to rote u/ton the question,
and that they have been deliberately
and audaciously cheated by their lead- (
'-- alio pledged themselves in { b' jr
I hi: form, in the press and from the!
stump, that the question of suffrage
*hoyld remain under the control of the ;
people of the States.
Bat the Inquirer d./es not speak by
the book when it states that the Dem
ocrats are courting the negro vote. Its
object in making this false assertion is
quite transparent. It thinks to make
Democrats as odious and contemptible
in the sight of di cent white men as
I hose of its own party who have en
franchised the black man in order to !
obtain his vo e. The Democratic par
ty presents its principles before the •
whole world, autl those who accept
th'-m it will in no wise east out. But
it dues not run after any particular
cla -s of [ (r-ons, much less does it pro
pose to proselyte Airiea, for that would
be poaching on the manor of the Radi
cal-. The African vote, of course, 6c
long* to the so-called Republican par
ty. The leaders of that oiganizatiou
have bougtit it and paid for it, and it j
is, therefore, their property. The
slaveholder's claim to the service of;
the black man was canceled by the
war, but the right of the Radical poli
tician to his vote has just accrued. -
The Negro is henceforward to he a po
litical slave, the bond man of the unscru
pulous demagogues who have purchas
ed him with a fraud and who mean to j
perpetuate their ownership by false
hood. The servitude from which he
has been emancipated, was that of the
body ; the service which the Radical j
politicians claim from him, enslaves
his soul. The Democrats do not choose
to meddle with the projaerty of their ,
opponents. They say to the "colored j
voters," Servants, obey your masters!
But. the Democratic apjx-al is to the
White Men who have hitherto acted
with the Radica's. Their leaders have i
deceived and betrayed them. They !
owe no longer any fealty loa party whose !
controlling spirits make light of thc-ir !
pledges to the people and who esteem
themselves no better than negroes.—
They cannot be faithful to their own
promises, made a hundred times over
to their friends and neighbors, if they
follow the false guides of their party
in this African experiment. Their
place, in future, is with the party
which would preserve the ballot from i
degradation and which aims to restore
to the States and the people the right .
of self-government bas?ly surrendered
by the Fifteenth Amendment. No
matter as to names. "What's in ai
name? A rose by any other name j
would smell as -weet." All who are a- ;
greed that THE PEOPLE must recov
er their lost rights, can and should act i
together, without regard to former j>o '
litieal affiliations. White Republi- i
cane, what answer?
IF any "colored voter" should cast j
his ballot for the Democratic cundi- j
dates it w ill riot be because Democrats j
have purchased him by supporting the !
Fifteenth Amendment fraud, but for
the reason that the Democratic party
irisisis that the working-man shall not
pay an exorbitant tax in the shape
of a high tariff <>n the iron and
-teel of which his plough, his axe,
his hoe, hi- hummer aid his working |
tools generally are made, on the -all
which seasons his food, on the cottons
and woollens clothe his body, and j
on the fuel which keep* his family j
from freezing in winter.

Connecticut answers the grandilo
quent electioneering proclamation of
President Grant announcing the so
called adoption of the Fifteenth A
mendment, with a splendid democrat
ic victory. lion. Jaaies E. English is
elected Governor by upwards of eight
hundred majority, iind the entire dem
ocratic istate ticket is carried by about
the -ame vote. Not withstanding the
fact that the oid ro ten-borough sys
tem by which a tow n of two hundred
inhabitants elects as many representa
tives as a city of fifty thousand, stiff
obtains in Connecticut, the legi-iature
Is close. with the chances in favor of a
democratic majority in the Senate.—
The republican journals apologetically
attribute this defeat of their party to
a stress of weather. The storm, they
say, prevented their voters from go
ing to the election. Of course tiie dem
ocrats did not mind tne storm. Hav
ing an abiding faith in the ju-lice of
theircaUse, they turned out, voted and
triumphed, in -qiteof wind and weath
er. But, we apprehend that the Ull
propitious elements winch scatter
ed and destroyed the radical
party in Connecticut, were not of
the air, but a premonitory wind from
the political sky, the precursor of the
coming storm w iiieh w iff sweep out

excuse for this d feat. The usurpa

tution, the degradation of the elective
franchise, the surr.nder of the Federal
Administration to the Money Howes,
the continuance of an oppressive ario
odious -y-tctn of taxation, these are
the very natural causes of the politi
cal storm before which the republican
party must inevitably succumb. The
result in Connecticut is hut the first
faint muttering of the approaching
thunder. Wait a little longer and the

by the County Committee, in another
column, appoiutirig an election for del
egates to a County Convention called
for the purpose of revising the rules
governing the party. It is hoped that
every district will send a delegate. No
j matter to what conclusion theC'onven
tion may come in reference to the so
ca!b-d "Crawford County System,"
at present in vogue, it is absolutely
; necessary that something should be
j done to prevent a recurrence of the
' scenes of the last nominating can

' that the wisest and most prudent
men be selected as delegates, men
who have at heart the good of
the party, and who do not represent
merely their own selfish interests or
the schemes of office-seeking politi
cians. Let us have a council of clear
heads and honest hearts, let us have
j deliberate and careful action, and !t
us have justice done to the Democrats
jof each and every district. We make
no doubt that a plan will be adopttd
by the Convention which will lie sat

| Congress, asks the Boston Journal , a
j republican journal, hear the demand
I coming up from all parts of the coun
: try for a reduction of taxation and
' a removal of the burdens which
' are prostrating business? The bu-i
--; uess men of the country, without dis
tinction of trade or polities, demand it.
They have carried tiie burden willing-
I ly while it was necessary, and would
do it again if the exigencies of tiie gov
ernment demanded it. N~ sane man
ran believe that the wants of the coun
try justify such an enormous taxation

i Sun, in noticing .SenatorSherman's de
; sign to continue the income tax at a re
| duced rate, says:
"The people w ill object to this, hi -
j cause it is a violation of the public
, faith. When the income tax was o-
I rigii tally levied amid the e.xtremest
I pressure of the war, Congress solemnly
pledged the faith of the government
that it should cense with 1870. That !
: is as binding a promise as that on the j

1 contract with the people, and cannot '
be repudiated witiiout dishonor."

The Governor, on discovering the
fraud, immediately sent a message to
the legislature asking that the error

It is stated ttsat a biff has Ufeu pre
pared for presentation to Congress, a
mongst tite provisions of which is the
"That the President and Cabinet i
ministers shall rtside at the seat of;
Government, and not leave tlie same
for more than two weeks at a time
without the consent of Congress ; that
the departments shall be kept open
froui ba. ui. tili 3p. in., and during
alt this time sliali be accessible to the ;

near the door of the apart merit, w itere- i
in any j>erson aggrieved may enter any

Any one who has hud occasion to \
transact business witli almost any of
tlie departments at Washington,
knows that tlie insoieuce of the heads
of the departments, as well as that of
the subordinates has been almost un
bearable. These officials, both gnat
and small, assume an air of arrogance I
tliat is as disgusting as it is inexvusa- !
ble. Nothing short of being on the
"right side," or having in possession j
indorsements aud recommendations
that d-ie uol be d.sregarded, secures a
citizen anyiniiig like proper respect
at the hands of tirese servants (?; of
the public. It is to be hoped that the
bill referred to w iff become a law, and
that these a .Usts, which have been so
ffagrant as lo be absolutely intolerable, '
be refo: med.
There is another feature of the bill
wliich is to Ije commended. It is that
which requires the President and his
, Cabiuel ministers to obtain leave of
Congress when they desire to absent
themselves irom tneir posLs of duty
for a longer period than two weeks.
Last summer the Government wue lit

In the United States Senate, yester
day, the joint re-o!atiuo directitig in
quiry into the loss of the Oneida by
the collision with the Bombay was
pa->ed. A debate sprang up on a reso
lution of Mr. Cameron to prepare
some appropriate testimonial to the
Pennsylvania and Massachusetts regi
ments which marched through Balti
more in 1-Gi to the defense of the cap
ital. Several Senators advanced the
claims of regiments from their respec
tive States for similar testimonials,
and in the debate Mr. Conk ling re
minded Mr. Cameron of the services of j
the New York troops jn saving Penn
sylvania. Mr. Cameion replied spite
f illy that "the less Mr. Conk ling said
on the subject the better it would be
for his own sake." The subject was
referred to the Military Committee.—
The Senate took up the Georgia bill, j
j and listened t<> speeches from Mr. Sum- |
ner and Mr. Carpenter. The House of
Representative* devoted nearly all the
j session to the paragraph of the Tariff
bill on sugar. The paragraph on liq
ours was also nearly finished.
In the United Slates Senate, yester- !
day, the morning hour was consumed
with the consideration of the Deficien
cy Appropriation bill. Among the i
terns of the bill which were acepted, ;
were those for the sea wall and reve
nue dock at the New Y< rk Battery, i
SIOO,<HR>; and for the New York Post
office and Custom-house, SBOO,OOO, in- i
stead of the SkUXW agreed upon by
tlie Hou-e. The bill us amended was
finally passxl. Mr. Sherman attemp
ted to get u,> the Income Tax bill, but
tailed. In consequence of the funeral
ol General Thomas and the absence of
many Senators, the Georgia bill was
postponed uinil Tuesday next,and the
Senate adjourned. In the House of
Representatives there was a lively
i time over a personal explanation made i
by Fernando Wood, in which he man
aged to introduce a series of damaging
charges against the Fecksuiffiuri Gener
al, (j. O. Howard. In substance, be j
charged that Howard, as Chief of
tlie Freed men's Bureau, swindled the
government out of a large amount of
money arid discharged the duties of j
his office with negligence and extrava- '
| ganee. Mr. Wood's accusations produ- I

In tlie United .Stales Senate, yester- j
day, one of the huge railroad and laud
jobs csinie up, and was debated by the j
new Senator from lowa, Mr. Howell, I
and Mr. Stew art, of Nevada. The form
er took strong grounds against this and j
similar swindles, and warned bis Had- •
1 ii-al companions of thi rising wrath of
the people. Mr, Sherman's joint reso- ,
lution declaratory of the meaning of 1
the law relating to the income tax w as
discussed and finally parsed. In the
House of Representatives, Ben Butler
attempted to introduce a joint resolu
tion to annex San Domingo, but •
Mr. Brooks, of New York, ob
jeeted. The resolution provides for
annexation, and appropriates $1,362,-
77U in coin to pay off the debt of the 1
black republic. It will come up again '
j on Monday, under the rule, but will j
' undoubtedly be defeated. The ilou.-e

the Tariff bill. The latter wasstrick- ,
en out, leavi g the duty on cigars the ;

After a short session yesterday the j

himself to get furiously angry with his
brother radical, Mr. Sumner, and to I
spurn the base insinuations of that ;

A letter has been received in London
from the Angeiican Bishop of Jerusa
lem, which corroborates the statement

wool and leather are not excepted from
this necessity of cleansing. Digestion ;
is freer when water is applied alaive j
the organs of digestion ; and the wash- j
