The proposed constitutional j amend

justing pequaiities which have hero
tofOre existed in our politicnl system,
and preventing one 'voter -in. South
Cpitlina from exercising as much in- ,
finetica in Congress •as two voters in
PetinsylVarrin. The .objections which
exist to the proposition to make Voters
the inisiS of representation—which
would probablY induce an unwise and
injUdicious extension of the right, of
suffrage, : as well as give undue advan
tages to Some communities-have been
.entirely avoided. While the liberty
of the States to Prescribe the qualifi
cations of Voters is not restricted, the
amendment will obviate, the injustice
of permitting them ,to, confer upon a

The Fish Bill,
Reported Views of President Johnson
on the Subject.
WisnmoroN, Jan. 27.—The
lug is the substance of a conversation
\Oda tools place to : day between the
President and a distinguished Sena
tor : '
The President said that he doubted
the propriety, at this time, of making
any further amendments to the Con
stitution. One meat amendment had
already been made, by which slavery
had f'or'ever abolished within the
limits of the United States, and a na
tional guarantee thus given that that
institution: should never again exist iii
the land. PropoSitions to amend the
Constitution were becomin g as numer
ous as preamble and resolutions at
town meetings called to consider the
most ordinary questions connected
with the administration of local alTairs.
All this, in his opinion, had a tenden
cy to diminish the dignity and pros•
Lige attached to the Conn:tit:l6°n of
the country, and to lesson the respect
'and confidence of the people in their
great charter of freedom.
if, however, athendnients are to be
made to the Oonstitution,ehanging the
hash of representation and.tnxation
(and he did not deem them at all nec
essary at the present time), he knew
of none better than a simple proposi
tion embraced in a fow lines, making
in each State themumber of qualified
voters the basis of representation, and
the value of property the basis of di ,
reel, taxation, Such a proposition could
be embraced in the following terms :
Representatives shall be apportioned
among the several States, which may
be included in this Union, according
to the number of qualified voters in
Direct taxes shalt be appertiOned
among the several States which may,
be included \within this Union, aebord•
ing to the value of all •taxablogpropor
ty in each State.
An amendment of this kind would,
in his opinion, place the hasis•of repro.
sentation and direct taxation upon
correct principles. The qualified voters
were, for the most part, men who were
subject to draft and enlistment, when
it was necessary to repel invasion, sup.
press rebellion and quell domestic vio•
leave and :insurrection. They risk the r•
lives, shed their ,blood awl peril their
till to nphold the Government and
give protection, security and value to
property. It seemed but just that
property should compensate for the
benefits thus conferred - by defraying
the expenses incident to its protection
and enjoyment. ,
Such an amenatnent: the President
also .suggested, would remove from
Congress issues in reference to the
political equality of the races. It would
leave the States to determine absolute
ly the qualification of their own voters
with regard to color, and thus the nnin
ber of representatives to which they
would be entitled in Congress would
depend upon th 3 number UI)011 which
they conferred the right of suffrage.
The President, in this connection,
expressed the opinion that' the agita ,
tion of the negro franchise question in
the District of Columbia at this time
was the mere entering-wedge to the
agitation of the question throughout
the States,and was ill-timed, uncalled
for,.and calculated to do great ham.
lle believed that it would engender
enmity, contention and strife between
the two races and lead .to a war be
tweet' them, which would result in
great injury to both, and the certain
extermination of the negro population.
Precedence, ho thought, should be giv
en to more important and urgent mat
ters legislation upon Which was essen
tial !for the restoration of the Union,
the peace of the country and the pros
perity of the people.
Revision of Our Conimon School Syr
AO effort is about to 130 made to
vise the common•sehool . system of the
Slate, by which the inhabitants of the'
. districts ma} enjoy the Same
privileges as are enjoyed by the mole
wealthy districts. Both branches of
the Legislature have adopted a resolu
tion appointing a committee of three
for that purpose. The project origi
nates with Senator Householder, of
Bedford county, who claims that the
design of the franiers of the Organic
law was "that the poor should be
taught gratis," whereas, there is at
present an unjust discrimination in
making each district levy - its'own rate
of tax, and keep its schools open for
a fixed term, without any regard to
the ability of its inhabitants to pay: In
wealthy districts the law works well,
but in the poorer sections it is oppres•
sive and unjuist.- In other words, the
Senator objects to the unequal taxation
'and unequal benefits in different io
calities,. and urges the passage of a
general State Revenue Bill, which
will distribute • funds and advantages
with equal hand in rich and poor coun
ties. .T.le proposesa tax upon the ba
sis of two mills to the dollar yaluation
upon the real and personal property
of the State, and about ten per cent of
the gross receipts coming into Treasu
ry. This sum will at any time, over
and above expenses, supply $1,600,000,
and will allow 45 cents per month to
each scholar, or 52,25 per scholar for
a minimum term of five months' tui••
tion, by paying $24 80 per month to
