TUESDAY, MAY 22, 1868.
OF BEERS COUNTY.
There never was a time when the De
mocracy of Pennsylvania needed more
thorough organization than now. The
Chairman of the Democratic State Com
mittee is a gentleman of great ability and
indomitable industry, and is doing all in
his power to marshal the whole Demo
cratic and conservative army into line.—
Pertiape no one could be found in the
State who is more competent to direct
the business he has undertaken than Mr.
Wallace, and we feel confident that no
thing will be left undone by him to se
cure the object so much to be desired.—
But there is something more needed than .
vigor and capacity on the part of the
Chairman. There must be hearty co-op
eration among thc masses. The people
must work in their own immediate locali
ties. Every man must. consider himself
enlisted fot the campaign from this day
until the battle has been fought in' Octo
ber next. Are our friends awake to the
importance of complete organization? If
the masses arouse themselves and do their
duty in the pending contest, the Diann
ionists, with Geary at their bead, will be
swept like chaff before the wind in the
October gale which is to overwhelm the
Rumps with utter destruction.—Age.
The Issue—Negro Suffrage.
The disunionists have at length shown
their hands on the subject of negro suf
frage. They have met the question fairly
at last, and have boldly committed them
selves in its favor. There can be no lon
ger any doubt about the matter, and the
political leaders in this State who are
cunningly attempting to evade the issue
in the hope of deceiving the masses have
been signally foiled in their schemes by
the bolder and more reckless of their own
partisans. In the Rouse of Representa
tives on Tuesday last, the bill to amend
the organic acts of the Territories of Ne
braska, Colorado, Daeztah, Montana,
Washington, Idaho, Arizona,- Utah, and
New Mexico, was considered •and finally
passed. The ninth section of the bill
reads as follows :
"That within the Territories aforesaid
there shall be no denial of the elective
franchise to citizens of the United States
becansfrof race or color, and all persons
shall be equal beforEr the law; and all acts
or parts of acts either of Congress or of
the legislative assemblies of the Territo
ries aforesaid inconsistent with the pro
visions of this act are hereby declared null
Mr..Leßlond, of Ohio, moved to strike
out the above, but his motion was lost by
a strict party vote, and the bill passed by
the same vote—the Radicals voting di
rectly in favor of negro suffrage, and the
Democrats recording their votes in the
The issue is now fairly made up and is
before the country. The radicals recog
nize " Congress" as the bead and tail of
their party. All that is done by that body
is accepted as their party creed. Their
representatives in the House have refused
to dodge the question and now stand
squarely on the record. This is General
Geary's platform, and every vote cast for
him in October next will be a ballot, di
rectly and unequivocally, in favor of ne

South Carolina Post-Offices.
The Postoffice _Department has issued
orders to discontinue the delivery of the
mails at an early day at all offiemin South
Carolina, and perhaps in other States
where there are no regularly appointed
and commissioned postmasters. This or
der will, the Governor of South Carolina
says, subject the press and the business"
community -to very serious embarrass
ment unless steps are promptly taken to
secure.the services at each post etEce of
such persons as cats take the requisite
oath as prescribed by Congress. lie
therefore recommends that some person_
be selected at each office who can take
the oath and give bond. .

On Tuesday, the Bth of May, the Amer
ican Anti-Slavery Society held its thirty
third anniversary in New York city.—
Among the prominent - melt invited to be
present and was not, was Chief Justice
Chase,who delights in such gatherings.
Instea of bodily presence he was there
in spirit through a iettei, in which be
takes strong ground in favor of negto
suffrage. His conoluding paragraph gives
timely notice that the negro agitation,
which has plunged the country into one
civil war, will be continued until the ne
grO is enfranchised entirely- and made the
social and political equal of the white
man. He says ; •
"However these things may be ,
at least seems clear. The men who so
long contended for justice to the enslaved
and now contend for justice to the eman
cipated, will not, cannot, must not cease
their efforts till justice prevails."
The resolutions were reported by Wen
dell Phillips. They advocate negro equal
ity. Two of them read as follows:
Resolved, That the Southern States
may see the history and future of the pol
icy they are initiating in the glass of Ja
maica, and find that every attempt to
cheat the emancipated negro out of sub
stantial freedom, incurs bankruptcy,
wrecks property, and ends in bloodshed.
Resolved, That the rebellion has not
ceased, it has only changed its weapons ;
once it fought, now it intrigues; once it
followed Lee in arms, now it follows
President Johnson in guile and chicane
ry ; once it had its head quarters in Rich
mond, now it encamps in the White House.
One threatens an insurrection if the
negroes are not allowed to vote, while
the other charges President Johnson with
heading the rebellion, which is declared
to be not at an end.
Among 4he speakers was Charles Len
nox -Remond, a negro from Massachu
setts, who told his audience that he was
" not ashamed of the white men ; he had
no prejudice against th•;m !" The last,
and by far the ablest speaker was Wen
dell Phillips, who sustained the 'resolu
tions and advocated negro suffrage and
equality. We reprint the following par
agraph, which is full of meaning, coming
from the father of the radical party :
" The South does not dread. negrn.suf
frage as the greatest evil.. That is not
where the bite comes. Negro suffrage
means a score of negro Congressmen sit-
ting in the House of Representatives. It
means colored merchants in New Or
leans and colored Senators in Columbia.
It: means negro representatives sharing in
making railroad laws and other laws. It
meant social equality, and that was where
the Southerner met the question. Social
equality follows hard on the heel of the
ballot-box, and the South knows it, and
she resists negro suffrage for what must
follow it. The negro in Maryland in the
Legislature is as good as John Hancock
signing the Declaration.of Independence,
and this was a principle which the South
would not admit. Nor would the North
clink it. She gropes toward it, bat does
not travel very rapidly in the right direc
The country ought to be much obliged
to Mr. Phillips for this outspoken truth.
He knows " where the bite comes," and
is frank enough to tell us. Negro suf
frage does mean "a score of negro Con
gressmen sitting in the House of Repre
sentatives," it means "colored Senators
in Columbii." He says it means "social
equality," which "follows hard on the
heel of the ballot-box." This is the re
ality of the question of universal suffrage.
S And this is the real issue in the Govern
or's election this fall—to determine whe
ther we shall have white or black Con
gressmen—to be followed by negro social
National Bank Failures.
The recent failure of the Merchants'
National Bank of the City of Washing.
ton has satisfied people that these insti
tutions are not exempt from the objec
tions urged against State banks—a liabil
ity to burst up.
The failure in this case amounts to
about $1,000.000, which falls upon the de
pissitors. The note holders are secured
by government securities, but those who
bad deposited money in the bank lose it.
Among tke losers is the government to
the amota of $500,000, which a paymas
ter in the army bad deposited. One of
the main causes of the failure is the lend
ing of half a million of dollars to one of
the Directors in direct violation of law.
When the National Banks were created,
their especial friends claimed for them ab
solute safety from failure and fraud
against the 'patrons.' But after the exam
' ple of the oil region banks and the one in
Washington, we'fied that loon
eywherever is handled for banking purposes there
may be rascality.
In the bill that 'created the national
banking system, that. clause of the lode
pendetit Treasury bill 'which prohibits the
deposit of public money in private banks,
was repealed. The national -banks were
made. the , depositories of government
funds in-face of the danger of the system

VETO OF WE ;i COLOUDO BILL.
Weal:ariaToN, May 16.
The following is the- President's mes
sage on the Colorado bill :
To the Senate of the United States:
I return to the Senate, in which House
it originated, the bill which has passed
both Houses of Congress, entitled "An
act for the admission of Colorado into the
Union," with roy_objections to its becom
ing a law at this time.
First. From the best information which
I have been able to obtain, I de not et:in
sider the establishment of a State Gov
ernment at present necessary for the wel
fare of the people of Colorado. Under the
existing territorial Government .all the
rights, privileges and interests of the citi
zeus are protected and secured. The qual
ified voters choose their own legislators
and their own local officers, and are rep
resented in Congress by a delegate of
their own selection. They make and ex
ecute their own municipal Jaws, subject
only to revision by Congress, an authority
not likely to be exercised unless in ex
treme or extraordinary cases. , The popu
lation is small, some estimating it as low
as twenty-five thousand, while advocates
of the bill reckon the number at from 30,-
000 to 40,000 souls.
The people are principally recent set
tlers, many of whom are understood to
be ready for removal to other mining dis
tricts beyond the limits of the territory,
if circumstances shall render them more
inviting. Sueh a population cannot but
find relief from excessive taxation. If
the territorial system, which devolves the
expenses of the Executive, Legislative
and Judicial departments upon the Uni
ted States, is for the present :continued,
they cannot but find the security of per
son and property increased by their reli
anceupon the National Fjecutive power
for the maintenance of law and order
against the disturbances necessarily inci
dent to all newly organized commuui
Second. It is not satisfactorily estab
lished that a majority of the citizens of
Colorado desire, or are prepared for au
exchange of a territorial for a Sate Gov
ernment. In. September, 1864, under the
authority of Congress, au election was
lawfully appointed and held for the pur
pose of ascertaining the views of the peo
ple upon this particular question. 6192
votes were cast, and of this number a ma
jority of 3152 was given against the pro
posed change. In September, 1865,
without any legal authority, the question
was again presented to the people of the
Terrify with the view of obtaining a
reconsideration of the result of the elec
tion held in compliance with the act of
Congress approved March 21, 1864. At
this second election, 5905 votes were
polled, and a majority.of 155 was 'given
in favor of a State organization. It does
not seem to me entirely safe to receive
this last mentioned result, FO irregularly
obtained, as sufficient to overweigh the
one which had been legally obtainrci in
the first election. Regularity and con
formity to law are essential to the pres
ervation of order and a stable Govern
ment, and should, as far as practicable, al
ways be observed in the formation ofnew
Third. The admission of Colorado at
this time as a State into the Federal Un
ion appears to me to be incompatible with
the public interest of the country, nod
while it is desirable that Territories,when
sufficiently matured, should be organized
as States, yet the spirit of the Constitu
tion seems to require that there should be
an approximation 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 others have a
population exceeding one million.
If this bill should become a law, the
people of Colorado, thirty thousand in
number, would have in the House of Rep
resentatives one 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-three. Color
ado would have in the Senate two votes,
while New York has no more.
Inequalities of this character have al
ready occurred, but it is believed that
none have happened where the inequality
was so great,.
When such inequality has been allowed,
Congress is supposed to have permitted
it on the ground of some high public ne
cessity, and under circurnstaaces which
promised that it would rapidly disappear
through the growth and development of
the newly admitted State. Thus, in re
gard to the several States in what was
formerly called the "Northwest Territo.
ry," lying west of the Mississippi, their
rapid advancement in population rendered
it certain that States admitted with only
one or two representatives in Congress,
would is a very•short period be-entitled
to a great increase of representation. So,
when California was admitted on the
ground of commercial and political exi
gencies, it was well foreseen that that
State was rapidly ta become a great,pros
perous, and important-commercial com
munity. In the case of Colorado I am
not aware that any National exigency, ei
ther of a political'ora commercial nature,
requires a departuri3 from the law of
equality which bas been `so generally ad
hered to in our history. • •
If information submitted with this bill
is reliable, Colorado, instead of increasing
has declined in population. At an elec
tion for members of a Territorial Legiela,
tare, held in 1861, 10,580 votes were cast.
.At t he election before mentioned in 1864,
the number of votes cast was 6192, while
a irregular . election in .1884
whichls - at - Wniiiettas a basis Tor legislative
action at this time, the aggregate of votes
cast was 5905.
Sincerely anxious for the welfare and
prosperity of every \Terlitory and State,
as well as for the welfte and prOsperity
of the whole Union, I regret this appa
rent decline of population in Colorado ;
but it is manifest that it is due to. emigra
tion, which is going on from that Territo
ry into other regions within the United
States, which either are in fact, or are be
lieved by the inhabitants of Colorado to
be. richer in ruineial ,wealth and agricultu
ral, resources. _
If, however, Colorado bas not really de
clined in population, another census, or
another election under tho authority of
Congress, would place the election be
yond doubt, and cause but little delay in
the ultimate admisSion of' the Territory
as a State, if desired by the people.
The tenor of these objections furnishes
the reply which may be expected to an .
argument in favor of the measure derived
from the Enabling act, which was passed
by,...C‹ . ingreas on the 21st day of March,
/864, akkbough Congress then supposed
that, the; condition of the Territory was
such as to warrant its admission as a
State. The result of the two years' ex
perience shows that every reason which
existed for the institution of a Territorial
instead of a State government in Colora-,
do 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 admission
of new States. Eleven of the old States
have been for some time, and still remain
unrepresented in Congress.
It is a common interest of all the States
as well those represented as those Iver,.
resented, that. the integrity and harmony
of' the Union should be restored as com
pletely as possible, so that, all those who
are expected to bear the burdens of the
Federal Government shall be consulted
concerning the admission of new States
that, in the meantime no State shall be
prematurely 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 whole coun

Austrian Troops for Mexico.
It is now certain that the first regiment
of Austrian troops has sailed from Trieste
for Vera Cruz. Two other regiments
will shortly follow. These troops,. the
Austrian Minister declares, are only to
be used in filling up the gaps made in the
ranks of the forces now in Mexico by
tle, sickness;and other casualties. This
will hardly be accepted by our govern
ment as a compliance with the demand
made by the Secretary of State in his dis
patch to Mr. Motely at Vienna. It is cer
tainly in open conflict with the Monroe
doctrine and the position of Napoleon in
his address, by which he is committed to
the idea of allowing the Mexicans to de
termine for themselves whether or not
the government of Maximilian shall be
permanent when once the French troops
are removed. Austrian troops will as ef
fectually prevent the people of Mexico
from exercising their right as freemen as
those of France, and the transfer of the
authority from one class of foreign bay
