Constitutional Convention
We see by the proceedings of the
Convention, thus fur made knowu in
the shape of resolutions and amend
ments offered and referred, many of
them that would disgrace even the
•lang of a Vuion League, or the belch
ings of a Junta of pot-house politi
cians. and it convinces us, that the
members of talents, intelligence, and
statesmanship, in the convention, will
be bored to death by the small fry
that is seated among thetu. That
there arc questions of great importance
that will come before them, is true,
questions that will involve the right*
of the state, such as the right of suff
rage, aud we hold that this is a con
ventional right, and that the present
couveution can enlarge, or restrict, or
qualify it. Already do we find the
worshippers of Ham's deeendants are
raising their impious hands to strike
out the word "White' from the Ist
sectiou, 3rd article, of the present con
stitution, in servile obedieuce to the
radical kites, whoeeTalons they have
affixed to the instrument signed by
George Washington as its President,
yeleped the 14th and loth amend
ments. Will a majority of the con
vention permit the political sacrilege
to be consummated ? Will they per-
Mit these political Janizaries to dis
grace our good old common wealth by
placing her alongside of Louisiana
and the Fiuchback governor, South
Caroliun and her negro administra
tion ? We hope Dot. The negro nor
mulatto had no right to vote in our
state under the constitution of 1776 or
1790. See chief-justice Gibson's opin
ion in Hobbs,et al vs Fox, 6 Watts
Rep. 553. But these inceudious gen
tlemen do not intend to . stop here.
The legislature in 1839 passed an elec
tion law, the 95 sec. declaring that,
"No body of troops in the army of the
United States, or of this common
wealth, shall he present, either armed
or unarmed, at any election within
this commonwealth, during the timo of
such election"'Ac., and thcv now in
tend to have inserted in the constitu
tion a prohibition, preventing the leg
islature of the State from enacting,
hereafter, any such law—thus recog
nizing the usurpation and infringe,
ment of the rights of the state by
President Grant and his soldiers, in
the late elections held nCNew- York
and in this state. So they go. But
suppose that as a matter of grace and
favor they should leave out the word
"White" in the Ist see. 3rd art. and
insert it by declaring "that none but
White freemen shall be elected as Sen
ators and members of the House of
Representatives," Ac—this a majority
of the convention have the power and
right to do. Similar restrictions and
qualifications are to be found in Un
laws and constitutions of several of
our states. In New York a negro
must be possessed of a freehold worth
8250 before he can vote, while the
white man is not subject to this free
hold qualification. In Massachusetts
none can vote who can cot read the
constitution and write his name, and
in that state, and one or two others,
they have imposed a capita tax on
each foreign emigrant that is landed
on their shores. But the qualifies
lion and restriction in the constitu
tion of the United States is in point.
The person elected President must be
a native born citizen. But this qual
ification and restriction is not requir
ed of the person elected- Vice-Presi
dent. So in our state, if the negro is
permitted, as a favor, to vote, this is
no reason that he should be elected to
office, or be an officer iu the militia to
command white men, or sworn as
a juror to try white men, or be elected
to any office of trust or profit in this
state —and we " k think the convention
will so declare in the constitution they
will submit to the people for their ap
Purchased Heats.
From the revelations of bribery al
most invariably following the election
of a United States Senator, nowa
days, one is led to conclude that few
members now occupy seats in that once
august body, made renowned by a
Clay, Webster, Benton, Cass, Buch
anan, and others, in the earlier and
purer days of the republic, but what
obtain their seats by bribery—pur
chasing their seats as men would buy
cattle. Cameron is notorious the
world over for buying his elc-ction,
Patterson did it, the Credit Mf.oiiler as

spent si<>soo to elect senator Har

Caldwell, of Kansas, was elected by
bribery, a committee to investigate bis
case, having witnesses before it which
make out a clear case against him, of
which the Tribune remarks :
The Investigating Committees now at
work in Washington, if they do not take
alarm at the multiplying developments of
irregularity and wickedness, are likely to
throw a flood of light upon certain myster
ies of legislation which have long puzzled
simple-minded people. Parliamentary
debate, as we all know, has long fallen in
to disrepute at the national Capitol, or is
valued only for its indirect effect upon
public sentiment; and bills before Con
gress are really discussed, not in Senate or
House of Representatives, but in the news
papers. The arts of prompting legislation
are practiced secretly in the lobbies and
corridors; and what those arls are, if the
present investigations go on much longer,
we shall all thoroughly understand.
There is the purchase system, for in
stance, of which the Senate Committee on
Privilege and Klootion* i* getting a pretty
fair illustration in the Kama- Pa-c. Mr.
Caldwell, it scorn f. wi-hing t>> bo Senator, 1

that "he was a poor man" and struck a

that although he voted according t .'agree

Theiv is another vten of lobl-\ „•
much loss dangerous and less brutal than
these dealings in legislative live-stock. It
consists in "mshiag friends.' and the
Credit Mobilier inquiry presents an excel
lent illustration of it. The Credit Mobi
lier was a doubtful company which made
a (treat deal of money through the favor ot
Congress. It had obtained, as it* chief
managers tell us, all the legislation it
wanted; but it was threatened with an in
vestigation ; it might at any time be ruined
by unfavorable action in Washington;
and if it wanted nothing else it wanted to
be let alone. The trustees consequently
put into the hands of Oakes Ames and
Thomas C. Duraul a thousand *hares of
stock to be distributed "where it would do
"most good.'' These gentlemen or at any
Mr. Ames—we have net heard Durant s
story yet) proceeded to place the stock in

cially to examine. They did not give the
stock outright; they only sold ti at a third
or a quarter of its value, and promised that
every man who took it should have his

What difference is there in principle be
tween these lwo*niethod of corruption
In both cases legislators accept a pecuni
ary consideration for their official action.
In both cases they prove false to their pub
lic duty and become the paid agents of
private persons or companies. The cor
ruption in the Kansas system i the more
and degrading, because it presup
poses the loss of all shame; but the bri

theless rel, and the implicated Congress
men can only vindicate their honesty
at the expense of their understanding.

Washington, D. C., Jan. 12. —The
Senate Committee on Elections this
morning examined Irn Dusick, a
member of the Kansas Legislature ;
C. W. Thomas, and Janus C. McDow
ell, the latter of whom testified that
Thomas offered to sell him for Cald
well the votes of Steele, and other
members of the Legislature. The
Committee also examinied at great
length L. T. Smith, Caldwell's part
ner in the banking Smith
gave the details of the arrange
medt made before the Senatorial
Election between Caldwell, Governor
Carney and himself, by which Carney
was to withdraw from tiie Senatorial
candidacy for fifteen thousand dollars
paid him by Caldwell. This amount
was subsequently paid Carney by
Caldwell in installments of ten and
five thousand dollars respectively.
Some time afterwards Smith gave
Carney $7,000 to reimburse liirn for
expenditures during the election.

' The Chicago Timet holds the ful*
lowing views ou currency and bank
r hg :
A Washington telegram says thai
tho House Committee on Currency
and Hanking have agreed on a bill
"for frbe banking, without authority
to issue circulating notes.", This means,
probably, that the committee have
agreed ou a bill extending all the
privileges of the existing banking law.
except the privilege of issuing circula
tion, to all who may wish to avail
themselves thereof. This a step in
the right direction. If banking priv
ileges are to be granted by the gener
al government at all. there is uo rea
son why they should not be granted
j equally to all. There is no propriety
| or justice iu creatiug and maintaining
a banking monopoly, any more thau
i there is justice or propriety iu creat
ing and maintaining a railroad or a
hotel monopoly. The baukiug and
currency committee seem to perceive,
however, that it will not extend the
privilege of issuiug circulation to all
who may desire it. They seem to per
ceive that if banking were to be made
free iu this respect, there would be
great danger of extreme inflation,
with all its attendant evils. But ifi
they can perceive this, why can theVj
not perceive that the currency privi
lege is one which ought not to be
granted at all ? The government
ought to grant no favors which can
not be granted equally to all who may
desire them. Government ought not
to create ami foster monopolies of any
kind. It ought not to say to the pub
lic, "You may enjoy all the privileges
conferred by the banking law, except
one, and that the most valuable one ;
that one must be reserved for the ex
clusive bout tit of those who uow en
joy it." If a privilege cannot be free
Iv extended without detriment to the
public iuterests, as it clearly catiDot
be in the matter of issuing circulating
notes, then it ought to be withheld en-;
tirely. But our law-givers don't be
lieve in shaping legislation in accord
ance with principles, and therefore
they will see no impropriety in mak
ing banking free, except iu so far as
they prefer to have it remuin a mo

dcr that he might attend the funeral of
Horace Greeley, many kind things were
said of him by the news paper press of the

piece of self-denial greatly to be commen

of his excellency will be sincerely gin I to

merciful Lord, whote judgement* are in
tcrutablc and whote wavt arc not to be
.canned, permit* this Apottolic See and
the whole Church in union with it to groan
under a long and crual persecution. Our
and your condition, venerable brother.. 1
has not been changed, but rather it daily 1
aggravated tince the occupation of our
province#, and especially tince, two year,
ago, thit glorieus city wa* withdrawn from
our parental rule. The experience ot our
yoke has taught ot how correctly, from
the beginning of this persecution promoted i
by the machination* of wicked icet* and :
perpetrated and carried on by their disci- j
pie* at the head ot public affair*, wofrc-j
qucntly In our allocutions and apottolii
letters have asserted openly that the ov-j
ereign right* of our secular princedom,
were attacked with so much force for no
other reason than that so away might b< :
laid towards abolishing, if that could be'
done, the spiritual authority in which the;
successors of Peter are glorious, and to ob-
literate the Catholic Church, and the Tory
name of Christ himself, living and reign
ing in it. Very clearly indecd'ha* that
been shown by the hostile acta of the sub-
Alpine (ioverntnent, especially by thoco
iniquitous laws by which even the cleric*,
torn from tho fool of the alter* and dc
; prived of their immunity, have been aum
moncd to the military service; by which
•ven bishop* have been deprived of the
right of teaching youth, and their semina
riea have been clewed. Still thia purpose
of their* shall be inadc alill moro clear by
u*. In this very city tho religious congre
gations are disturbed under our own eyes,
are violently driven out from their houses
and the property of the Church subjected
to an enormous tribute and handed over to
the disposition of tho civil authority.
Even now there has been proposed in the
Legislative Chamber, as they call it, a law
not wholly dissimilar from that which,
notwithstanding our protests and solemn
condemnation, has already been put into
execution in other parts yf Italy, which
■nust extinguish, even hero in the centre
of Catholic faith, tho religious congrega
tions, and confiscate the goods of the
Church and offer them at public auction.
But this law—if, indeed, we can honor by
such a name a decree so repulsivo to nat
ural, divine, and social right—is much
moro iniquitous and criminal in Home and
tho adjacent provinces. It injures more
deeply nnd sorely the rights and poses
lions of the universal Church. It attacks
the very foundation of the true social civ
ilization, which thu religious orders, with
unceasing labor and equal courage and
constancy, have promoted and perfected,
not only in our territory, but which they
have brought and still bring to foreign
and barbarous nations, despising difficul
ties, dangers, losses, even life itself. In
fine, this law- attacks the rights and privi
leges of our Apostolnte, since if tho reli
gious houses y. oro obliterated or notably re
duced, and the secular clergy reduced to
destitution and gradually diminishing in
numbers owing to tho military conscrip
tion, not only hero as elsewhere would

which liavo been gathered here and placed
in this centro of unity by the generosity ol

of the univcrsn' Church will be impiously
converted to the uso of others. Scarcely
hud we learned that one of the ministers of
the sub-Alpine Government had signified

comforting consolation and a poy crfi-l help
