"1 DFS YoU Formsrr ME."—A cer
tain minister had promised a little boy
of his that he should accompany to
church on the following Sabbath. The
little fellow, although not quite four
years old, was still old enough to re
member the promise. But when church
time came it happened that he was
fast asleep, and his parents went 'away
leaving him in bed. Sometime after he
awoke, and calling to mind the promise
given him, he hurried down stairs only
to find his father and mother gone.
Determined not to be frustrated in this
manner, he made his way into the street,
and crossing to where the church stood,
entered the open door. The minister
at that moment was commencing his
sermon. Fixing his eyes upon his
father, the little fellow toddled up the
aisle in his night clothes, until directly
opposite the pulpit, when he halted and
looking up at him, called out, "I dens
you fortiot me!"
A CERTAIN green customer, who las a
stranger to mirrors, and who stepped
into the cabin of one of our ocean steam
ers, stopped in front of a large pier-glass,
which he took for a door, and seeing his
own reflection, he said: "I say, mister,
when does this ere boat start ?" Getting
no answer from the dumb reflection be
fore bin; he again repeated; say, mis
ter, when does this ere host start?" In
censed at the silent figure, he broke out,
"Go to thunder, ye darned liassafras-col

Two OF young fellow whose
better half had just presented him w ith
a bouncing pair of twins, attended church
one Sunday. During the discourse, the
clergyman looked right at our innocent
friend, and said, in a tone of thrilling
eloquence: "Young man, you have an
important responsibility thrust upon
you." The newly fledged dad, supposing
the preacher alluded to his peculiar home
event, considerably startled the audience
by exclaiming, "Yes,jj have two of

"No, sir," said he, "I took your gruel
easy enough, but hang me if I can eat

'Now, children,' asked a school in

girl not four years old, and evidently
not posted in the catechism, answered
quickly 'All women.'

THE Providence, Rhode Island, Her
ald thus disposes of General Grant, who
according to the latest Washington
news, "feels greatly chagrined at his ain
gular conduct in the Stanton matter:"
General Grant is politically dead;
there is no doubt about that. What the
New York nomination had failed to ac
complish, Washburne has effectually
completed. Grant is anxious to be Pres
ident; be had evinced just one spark of
ability justifying his nomination. He
had held his tongue. If he could con
tinue to do this, and not be called upon
to act in any Important matter, his
chances for the nomination by the Re
publican party were very good. Nobody
could compel him to speak, but Con
gress necessitated his action. Stanton
being restored, under color of law, Grant
was obliged to take sides. To adhere to
his positioa, as lawfully he might- and
ought, was to be subjected to the imputa
tion by the Radicals of favoring Presi
dent Johnson. This, under the advice
of Ww3hburne, he dared not do, but hav
ing in the meantime promised the Presi
dent that he would, in case the Senate'
refused to sanction the suspension of
Stanton, either hand in his resigna
tion to the President, or let a mandamus
be issued tor compel him to surrender
his office, he has, by admitting Stanton
in the manner he has, not only played
into the bands of Congrem, but lie has
forfeited his word, and committed an act
unbecoming an officer and a gentleman,
Silly Washburne—thrice silly Grant.
NOT content with disfranchising large
numbers of white men in the South, the
Radicals at the recent elections placed
hundreds of fraudulent votes In the
boxes, and thus secured delegates tirthe
constitutional conventions. In the City
of Richmond the white population
charged both a fraudulent vote and reg
istration, and in one of the wards Gen
eral Schofield has had a census taken of
the persons authorized to vote under the
reconstruction laws. The result of this
examination is that more than six hun
dred negro names are ascertained to have
been fraudulently 'placed on the regis
tration lists. These names were voted,
however, at the election. Negroes were
brought in from the country who an
swered to the names, and the election
was kept open three days, up to mid
night of the third day, in order to ena
ble the fraud to be consummated. As
there are live wards in Richmond, it is
probable that the total number of negroes
fraudulently registered in that city is
fully two thousand, and in the entire
State not less than twenty or thirty
thousand. This is what the Radicals
call guaranteeing a republican form of
government to a State. —Af,s•
GENERAL :MADE TIED UP.—Notwith
standing the novel mode adopted by
General Grant in communicating the
fact to Congress, there is much food for
reflection in the statement made by
General Mende, that "unless the pend
ing bill in Congress directing military
commanders to till the offices in the
States under their command rescind the
test oath in regard to qualified voters,
its execution in his (Meade's) district
will be entirely impracticable." This Is
a very important announcement, and
convicts the radicals, through the testi
mony of one of their own instruments,
of haste and inconsiderateness, - to use
the mildest terms, in framing the recon
struction acts. Here-we find the hands
of General Meade virtually tied up. and
himself, as a conscientious commander,
placed in the mortifying position of a
military officer without power to enforce
a plain provision of the law. This, how
ever, is but one of the ridiculous provi
eifotts in the reconstruction acts of Con
gress, and the sooner others are ventila
ted the sooner will the people become
aware of the impracticability and ahem-
Aity of the entire congressional scheme
of reconstruction.—N. Y. Herald.
GETTING INTO POWER.—There is a
class of politicians who see but one good
In this world, and that is "to get into
power." The chief end: of man Is "to
get into power," no matter on what basis
and no matter what principles are to be
subserved. But getting into power on
wrong foundations has been the destruc
tion of more States, and the ruin of more
peoples, than alt other causes combined.
The Mongrel party got Into power In
this country, and behold what has . come
of it: Will a century repair the mis
chief it has done? The first business of
the statesman and patriot, for a long
time to come, will be, to work out of the
public mind the errors and delusions
which this terrible party have worked
into it. The getting into power of any
party on a platform of principle which
recognizes the Justice and the wisdom of
any portion of the work done by the Mon
grel party, will be simply to prolong, If
not render permanent, the fatal errors
and crimes it has engendered.—Sunbury
Ix the Southern conventions the ne
groes have passed laws forbidding the
establishment of any school which will
not admit the negroes. This practically
forbids the advancement of white chil
dren. The negroes can't advance and
the whites dare not. Such is Radical
Resolutions forbidding the intermar
riage of the races were voted down. The
big buck negro will not permit any im
pediment in his way to the marital
conch of white girls. Another step in
the great onward march of equality and
amalgamation. Another evidence of
IN a letter to Major-General J. A.
Meelernand, cozpraanding Thirteenth
Army Corps, dated Young's Point, La.,
January 31, 1863, General Grant writes:
"I regard the President as Commander
in-Ohlef of the army, and wlll obey
every (wirer of his.”—[Badeau's "Life of
Grain," vol. 1, p. 613.]
That was sound. But the new Bacon
etruotion bill prescribes the contrary.
Will General Grant obey the law of his
country, or this infamous ooutrivanee to
destroy its laws?—N. Y. World.

NPEIXII. or SENATOR DOOLITTLE,
Is lbw V. S. &poste, Jos. ind.
Mr. President, the -question preheated
in the amendment offend by me is
whether Congress Is still resolved to sub
ject the white people of the Southern
States to the domination of the negro
race at the point of the bayonet, or
whether Congress, In deference to the re
cently expressed will of the American
people, will now so far modify their pol
iey as to leave the governments In those
States in the handsof the white race and
of the more civilized portion of the
blacks? That ill the naked question. •
Sir, why press this negro supremacy
over the whites? 'What reason can you
give? I have heard three distinct an
swers to this question worthy of notice:
First. Because the States of the South
rejected the constitutional amendment
submitted by Congress ;
Second. Because the negroes are loy
al, and the whites disloyal; and
Third. Because it will secure party
Let ns, consider the first answer, that
the States of the South have rejected
the constitutional amendment submit
ted by the last Congress as the hula of
I admij . the Legislatures of all the
Southern States rejected that amend•
ment with great unsailmity ; butte that
any sufficient reason for the adoption of
this harsh policy? I think not. In the
first place, that amendment contains one
provision which made its adoption lin
passible by the Southern people, at
least until you change the human heart
and destroy all sense of personal honor.
It disfranchises from holding office all
the men of the ,South in whom tiley had
ever placed any public confidence—all
who had ever held any office, State or
Federal. And disfranchises them for
what? For simply doing what they
themselves had done.
I can understand bow one may say in
argument that the leaders should be die
franchised. But how any man of com
mon sense, or common manhood, could
ever suppose it possible for the people of
the South to vote to disfranchise men es
teemed by them as equal to, if oot better
than themselves, for an offense which
they themselves were equally guilty,
is beyond my comprehension. You ask
the Southern people to betray the men
whom they trust. You ask them to dis
honor those whom they honor, to uproot
the affection of years from their hearts.
You ask them to strike with a serpent's
tooth the bosom of a friend. But until
human nature shall cease to be what
God has made it, honorable men, to save
themselves, to save even tltelt lives
would not Incur the guilt of such unnat
ural treachery by voting for such a pro
vision. When it was pending before the
Senate, June 8, 1868, I urged and im
plored Senators to allow the several pro
visioas of that amendment to be separ
ately submitted and voted upon, and I
warned the frier.ds of the measure that
this provision would inevitably de
feat its adoption by every Southern
State. But, sir, the majority were deaf
to all appeals. The caucus had resolved;
the deed was to be done. On account.,
mainly, of that provision, the amend
ment was rejected almost unanimously
by every Southern State.
Again, when examined more closely
we find that provision required them to
vote to disfranchise thousands who have
received pardon and amnesty, and a res
toration to all their rights as citizens un
der the proclamations of President Lin
coln and President. Johnson, by virtue
of a law of Congress, whit% you your
selves enacted, which expressly author
ized them to grant such pardon and am
nesty upon just such terms as they
thought proper. AR amendment offered
by me in the Senate the 31st day of May,'
uriee, to except those men w ho had "du
ly received pardon and amnesty under
the Constitution and laws," was voted
down by an unyielding majority. I can
never view this provision in any other
light than a most palpable violation of
the plighted faith of this government
given to those persons la the most sol
emn form. * * •
Mr. President, Congress has proposed
from time to time many schemes, but
they may all be resolved into distinct
policies, radically opposed to each other.
First. Reconstruction by the Consti
tutional amendment ou the white basis.
Second. Reconstruction by negro suf
frage and military force.
The first assumed.. that peace had
come; -that the States were In the Uni
on, with governments organized, with
Legislatures having power to ratify or to
reject Constitutional amendments ; and,
furthermore, that those governments
were In the Lauds of white men, with
power, as in other States, to admit or to
exclude negroes from suffrage. And, in
case the amendment were adopted by
three-fourths of the States, the only ef
fect of admitting or excluding negroes
from the ballot; in any State, would be
to change its number of voters in the
other Rouse of Congress, and in the
The second assumes that we are still at
war; that the Southern States are not
states in the Union at all, but conquered
provinces, with no Legislature which
can either ratify or reject a constitutional
amendment; that the white people of
these States shall no longer have any
power over the question of suffrage; that
Congress by the bayonet will disfran
chise the whites and enfranchise the
blacks; and thus by military power and
negro votes compel the adoption of a new
Union and a new Constitution. Because
they rejected the constitutional amend
ment Congress now resorts to the bayo
net and negro suffrage to compel Its
True, I admit they did reject the
amendment. But how did they reject
it? By the votes of their legislatures.—
They could reject it in no other way, for
it was t nly to their Legislatures that
Congress submitted the question. But
how • could their Legislatures reject it If
they had no Legislatures at all? If they
had Legislatures which could reject it
they had Legislatures which could ratify
it. To do either is the highest act of a
State Legislature, for it then acts upon
the fundamental law not only of its own
State and peeler, but of all the people of
the United States. Conceding they had
I power, as they claim, to reject your
amendment, by what shadow of right do
you deny to those Legislatures power to
choose Senators in this body? As well
deny to a living body the right to breathe.
But perhaps you say if they had ratifi
ed the amendm%nt, then they had Legis
latures which had the right to vote.. In
other words, if they voted with you they
had a right (*vote; it they voted against
you, they ban° right to vote at all.
Again, elr; all the world knows Ilia
whole object of the war WM to put down
the rebellion and to maintain the union
of States under the Constitution. Every
act and resolve of Congress, every dollar
spent, every blow struck, every drop of
blood shed, was to compel the people and
the States of the South to live In the
Union and obey the Constitution. And
now that we have succeeded, now that

And why, sir; why should they not
