Maj. Gen. John W. Geary,
OF CUMBERLAND COUNTY
THE very first thing the freedmen
have sought, after liberty, is education.
Give them suffrage, and they will
Make their first use of it to promote in
telligence. The Civil Rights law hav
ing given them all the other rights of
citizenship except the suffrage, when
that is granted the question most like
ly to be asked by the freedmen of can
didates soliciting their votes is whoth•
er, if elected, they will favor such a re
form in the school laws as will afford
black children the same educational
advantages as are enjoyed by the
white childree. Still the nation ought
not to be content with this; but ought,
by the use of every legitimate power
of the Government, to create .and sus
tain a general, active and liberal sys ,
torn of public schools throughout the
South, for the benefit of all classes and
conditions of society.
We would say, rather, give the
freedmen intelligence and he will then
be fit to be a voter. The Detroit Post,
from which we quote the above, shows
that utter ignorance prevails in the
South among the freedmen and the
white population both; and it attribu
tes to the ignorance of the attempt to
overthrow the Government. low does
the editor know that ignorance in the .
voting negro will not manifest itself in
some way dangerous to the public
good? On what ground can it be
claimed that the ignorance which has
proved so great a curse in the white
man will prove a safe thing on which
to base great expectations in the black
man ? To our mind, it is reversing the
logical order, to say, give the negro
suffrage and he will get education by
the use of it. Give him education first
and he will use the ballot for his own
and his country's good. We are not
disposed to credit the negro with a
larger share of native instinct for vo
ting wisely than tne average of white
men. We educated our youth to the
period of twenty one years before per
mitting them to vote, and unless sla
very is a better preparatory school for
voters than we have been taught to
suppose,wo think that freedmen should
not immediately clothed with the bal
lot. Foreigners are compelled to un
dergo a probation before voting, als
though their average intelligence is up
to the Mark which the freedmen, as a
class, will do well if they reach any
time within the next ten years. ft can
not be disputed that the majority of
the freedmen, under present impulse
and guidance, and on the issue of loyal
ty or disloyalty, would vote right,
bat what they will do ten or even two
years hence, when questions,end men,
too, have changed, is quite another
thing. Once voters, always voters;
and as we in the North go systematic ,
ally at work to gain control over the
ignorant and weaker classes, and as
we know that the stronger does pns.
seas the weaker—though the means
are not always reputable—so the infer
ence, if not the absolute certainty is,
that the negroes, to a large extent.
_ would, if not fortified by intelligence,
fall under the control of white politi•
cians and become their instruments.
We perceive not how, it is possible to
come to any other conclusion. It is the
inference drawn from experience
e v erywhere, in all countries, where suf
is exercised. If any lesson is taught
by experience, it is that suffrage with=
out intelligence has a strong tendency
to become corrupt, and that an enligh.
tened suffrage only is consistent with
the idea of stability.—Pitts. Com.

Letter from the West.
MONIMUTIt, ILL., May 16, 1866.
FRIEND LEWlS:—There is nothing of
much importance going on here now.
The farmers are busy planting their
corn, which is all done now by machi
nery, not one acre in fifty in our coun
ty being planted the old fashioned way,
cornplanting and tending being now
reduced to a science. Tho season, so
far, has been backward, though the
prospect now for a fruit crop is very
good. We dont raise much fruit here
except apples. There are some sour
cherries raised here but peaches do not
stand this climate well, though a hun
dred miles south of us they do very
well; apples generally do well with us.
Politics are at a stand. The war
between the President and the Radi
cals, which promised such glorious re
sults for the "Copperheads" not being
waged of late with sufficient vigor by
either party to suit them. Row it will
turn out remains to ho seen. It the
Johnson man and Radical wing in
Congress would only pitch into ono
another they would be delighted. In
this event they would only have to
stand back and enjoy the sport, and in
the end step in and secure what they
aro now hungering and thirsting for
very much, but the prospects of late
are not so flattering. I hope the Pre•
sident will not play into their hands
and that Congress will have the good
sense to see that the policy of insisting
on negro suffrage will not do. Some
of the radical papers seem to argue as
though it was a settled fact that uni
versal suffrage was a sure remedy for
all the ills that flesh is heir to, and
that if we only force the Southern
States to adopt that, then wo aro all
right and have nothing more to do or
hope for. Such may be the case, but
for my part I confess I don't see it.
Grandng universal suffrage where
the blacks and whites approximate
equality in numbers might not lead to
a war of races, but I would be afraid
to risk it, and if violence should ensue
among them the colored people must
suffer. But enough out the subj
If Congress and the President can get
together, while it will be as severe a
blow to Northern Copperheads as was
the surrender of Lee and Johnston,
still I hope such will be the case. This,
among Union men, should be no time
for crimination or recrimination. Our
glorious army crushed the military
power of the Southern Confederacy as
between the upper and nether mill
stones, in spite of their• allies amongst
us. It would be poor policy now to ,
turn the government over to the hands
of its enemies when victory has been
achieved. As to reconstructed rebels
I think with a little prudence on our
part and anything like fair promises
on their part, we may trust them.—
Many of them fought us openly and
manfully, and an open, manly enemy,
when he submits, can be trusted with I
safety. But those poor, pitiful--well
I hav'e no name for them, who acted
the part of traitors at home yet afraid
to go over to the rebels, I must be al.
lowed to doubt their honesty for some '
time yet, and respectfully ask that
they be required to take back seats for
a few years at least.

The Colorado Veto Message.
WASHINGTON, May Is.—The follow
lug is the President's message on the
Colorado bill :
To the Sonata of the United States:
I return to the Senate, in which
House it originated, the bill which has
passed both Houses of Congt'ess, enti
tled "An act for the admission of the
State of Colorado into the Union,"
With my objections to its becoming a
law at this time.
First. From the best information
which I have been able to obtain, I do
not consider the establishment of a
State government at present necessary
for the welfare of the people in Color
ado. Under the existing territorial
government all the rights, privileges
and interests of the citizens are pro
tected and secured. The qualified vo
ters choose their own legislators and
their own local officers, and are repre
sented in Congress by a delegate of
their own selection. They make and
execute their own municipal laws, sub
ject only to revision by Congress—an
authority not likely to be exercised
- unless in extreme or extraordinary ca
ses. The populotion is small,*some es
timating it so low as twenty five thou
sand, while advocates of the bill reck
on the number at from thirty five thou
sand to forty thousand souls.
The people are principally recent
settlers, many of whom are understood
to be ready for removal to other min
ing districts, beyond the limits of the
Territory,if circumstances shall render
them more inviting. Such a popula
tion cannot but find relief from exces
sive taxation. If the territorial sys
tem, which devolves the expenses of
the executive, legislative and judicial
departments upon the United States,
is for the present continued, they can
not but find the security of person and
property increased by their reliance
upon the national executive power for
the maintenance of law and order,
against the disturbances necessarily
incident to all newly organized com
Second. It is • not satisfactorily esta
blished that a majority of the citizens
of Colorado desire, or aro prepared for
an exchange of a territorial for a State
government. In September, 1864 un
der the authority of Congress, an elec
tion was lawfully appointed and held
for the purpose of ascertaining the
views of the people upon this particu.
lar question ; 6,192 votes were east,
and of this number a 'majority of 3,152
was given against the proposed change.
In Septembr, 1865, without any legal
authority, the question was again pre
sented to the people of the Territory.
with the view of obtaining a reconsid
eration of the result of the election held
in compliance with the act of Congress
approved March 218086.1. At this
second election 5,905 votes were polled
I and a majority of 155 was given iu fa•
vor of a State organization. It does
not seem to me entirely safe to receive
this last mentioned result, so irregular.
ly obtained, as sufficient to over weigh
the ono which had been legally obtain
ed in the first election. Regularity
nod conformity to law are essential to
the preservation of order and a stable
Government, and should, as far as
practicable, always be observed in the
lbrmation of new States.
Third. The admission of Colorado at
this time as a State into the Federal
Union appears to me to be incompati-
blo with the public interests of the
country; and while it is desirable that
Territories, when sufficiently matured,
should be organized as States, yet the
spirit of the Constitution seems to re
quire that there should be an approxi.
illation towards equality among the
several States comprising the Union.
No State can have less or more than
two Senators in Congress. The largest
State has a population of four millions;
several of the States have a population
exceeding two millions, and many oth•
ers have a population exceeding ono
If this bill should become a law, the
poople of Colorado, thirty thousand in
number, would have in the House of
Representatives ono member, while
New York, with a population of four
millions, has but thirty-one. Colorado,
would have in the electoral college
three votes, while New York has only
thirty•threo. Colorado would have in
the Senate two votes, while Now York
has no more.
Inequalities of this character have
already occurred; but it is believed
that none bare happened whore the in
equality was so great.
When such inequality has been al—
lowed, Congress is supposed to have
permitted it on the ground of some
high public necessity, and under cir
cumstances which promised that it
would rapidly disappear through the
growth and development of the newly
admitted State. Thus, in regard to
the several States in what was former
ly the "Northwest Territory," lying
west of the Mississippi, their rapid ad•
vaneement 'in population rendered it
certain that States admitted with only
one or two representatives in Congress
would in a very short period. be enti
tled to a great increase of representa
tion. So, when California was admit
ted on the ground of commercial and
political exio:neics, it was well fore
seen that that State was ilestined rap
idly to become a great, prosperous,
and important mining and commercial
community. In the case of Colorado
I am not aware that any national exi
gency, either of a political or commer•
cial nature, requires a departure from
the law of equality which has been so
generally adhered to in our history.
It information submitted in connec—
tion with this bill is reliable, Colorado,
instead of increasing, has declined in
population. At an election for mem
bers of a territorial legislature held in
1861, 10,580 votes were cast. At the
election before mentioned, in 1864, the
number of votes cast was 6,192, while
at the irregular election held in 1665,
which is assumed as a basis for legis—
lative action at this time, the aggre—
gate of votes cast was 5,905.
Sincerely anxious for the welfa're and
prosperity of every Territory and
State, as well as for the prosperity and
welfare of the whole Union, I regret
this apparent decline of population in
Colorado ; but it is manifest that it is
duo to emigration, which is going on
from that Territory into other regions
within the United States, which either
are in fact, or aro believed by the in
habitants of Colorado to be, richer in
mineral wealth and agricultural re
sources. If, however, Colorado has
not really declined in population anoth
'er census or election, under the author
ity of Congress, would place the ques
tion beyond doubt, and cause but little
delay in the ultimate admission of the
Territory as a State, if dosir dd by the
The tenor of these °Noe tions fur—
nishes the reply which may bo expec
ted to an argument in favor of the
measure derived from the enabling act,
which was passed by Congress en the
21st day of Alarch, 1864, although Con
gress then supposed that the condition
of the territory was such as to warrant
its admission as a State. The result
of the two years' experience shows thitt
every reason which existed for the in
stitution of a territorial instead of a
State government in Colorado at its
first. organization still continues in force.
The condition of the Union at the
present moment is calculated to in—
spire caution in regard to the admis
sion of now States. Eleven of the old
States have boon for some time and
still remain unrepresented in Congress.
It is a common interest of all the
States, as well those represented, as
those unrepresented, that the integrity
and harmony of the Unidn should be
restored as completely as possible, so
that all those who are expected to bear
the burthons of the Federal Govern
ment shall be consulted concerning
the admission of new States; that in
the meantime no State stall be prema•
turely and unnecessarily admitted to
participation in the political power
which the Federal Government wields,
not for the benefit of any individual
State or section, but for? the common
safety, welfare and happiness of the
