IN our. ,report of the yeas and nays on
the CcaisigutiOhttl Amendment, the name
of the Hon. TIIOMAS WILLTANS was alto
gether omitted. He voted yea.
availe4:- Maui& of several, occasions pub
licly to declare that lie held in detestation
the treachery of TYLER and FILLMORE to
the political associates by whom they were
elevated to the height of power; and that
he should' carefhlly avoid following theit
example. A correspondent of the London
Times, writing front Washington at ahout
the date of these Presidential declarations,
details minutely.. a converaation he had
with the President. ,His letter has, within
a few 'dart; pnblialled in roll in the
New York journals.. He..statcs that Mr.
Jona-set atlntliteid to tdm that his object
was to drivethe Republicans out of power,
arm to loco the control of the government,
fn'altits departments, in the hands of the
ate rebels and their northern sympathizers.
Every carefill observer of events knows
that this is the end to which all the efforts
of the President tend. It is easy, there
fore, to estimate the degree of sincerity
with which he professes to be fighting his
quarrel out insitlb the Republican lines.
SECIIRTAIty STANTON did not, either in
Cabinet meeting or any where else, give
his assent to the Presidential progratrune
of reconstruction. The report to that effect
was prepared in the Executive Chamber
and sent to the Associated Press. This re
port was followed by another from the
same•quarter, stating if the Secretary was
not there consenting, it was due to himself
and the public to come out 'and say so. It
Waa limply a trick to draw him into' a post:
tion vebarolp could be charged with "de
nouncing the President." It did not suc
ceed. What next? '
A FORM.EIt slave has brought suit before
the Freedmen's Bureau at Nashville for
damages. Her father was a free man of
color, and married a slave; Mon bought her.
A child was born before the purchase of
the with. Afterwards this child was bought
in the name of a friend. After the death
of the parents, this friend claimed the child
and ttie property to-which she was heir,
and held them.' Hence tht. suit. Verdict
for the child.

the disappointed community that It tens a
matter of ImposSibility for him to keep his
contract to supply the mammoth balloon with
gas. The extensive reservoirs wore charged
yesterday morning, but before noon there
came hundreds upon hundreds of suffering

Innate the balloon was exhausted. Dr. Sill re

Window Glass on Free List
W Astor:ores, May le—The following Is the
President's message vetoing the Colorado Ad
mi.lon 11111:
To the Senate of the United States,-1 return to
the senate, In whicti house IL originated, the
bill which has passed both bounce of Congress,
entitled An Act for the Admission of the State
of Colorado into the Union, with my objet.
tions to its becoming a law at this time. First
—From the bent information which I have been
able to obtain. 1 do not consider the establish
ment of a State Government at present neces
sary for the welfare of the people In Colorado.
Under the existing territorial govern
ment, all the rights, privileges and in
terests of ethe citizens are protected anti
secured. The qualified totem choose
their own legislators and their own local
officers, and are represented to g Con by a
anti of their own selection. ey mak
anti execute their own municipal laws sub
ject only to revision by Congress, an auhorl
ty not likely to be exercised unless in extreme
or extraordinary cases. The population Is
mall, some estimating it so low as twenty-five
thousand, while the advocates of the bill
reckon the number at from thirty-five to forty
thousand. The people are principally recent
tel tiers, many of whom are understood to be
ready for removal to other mining districts
beyond the limits of the territory, if eircum- '
-Lances shall render them more inviting.
Such a population cannot but find relief
front excessive taxation, if the terri-
coda! system, which devolves the expenses
of the executive, legislative and judicial de
partments On the United States, is, for the
present, continued. They cannot 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 communities.
Second. It in not satisfactorily established
that a majority of the citizens of Colorado do.
sire, or are prepared, far an exchange of a
Territorial for a State government. In
September, lard, under the author 14. of Con
gress, an election was lawfully appointed and
held, for the purpose of ascertaining the views
of the people upon this particular munition.
Six thousand one hundred anti ninety-two
votes were cast, and of this number, a majori
ty of three tlionsand ono hundred and fifty
the was given against the proposal change.
In September, Ina, wit host any legal authori
ty, the question was again presented
to the people of the Territory, with
a view of obtaininga reconsider
ation of the result of the election,
bold in compliance with the act of Congress,
approved March net, lsat. At this secon
election Vail Vete. were polled, and a small
majority of 155 was given in favor of a State
°rpm Iratlon. It does not acme to me entirely
sate to permit the last mentioned result, so ir
regularly obtained, to outweigh the one which
had been legally obtained In the first election.
Regularity and conformity are essentml to the
preservation o rder and stable goveniment,
and should, as fat as practlcable, alwaye be
observed In the formation o( new States.
Third. The admission of Colorado at this
time as a Stilton Into the Union, appetite to me
to be incompatible with the public Interests
of the country. While It is desirable that Ter
ritories, wben sufficiently matured, should be
organized an States, yet the spirit of the Con
stitution seems to require that ybere should
by an approximation towards eterMlty among
the several States comprising the Union. No
State can have less nor more than two Sena
tors hi Congress. The lament, State has a pop
ulation of four millions. several other Stale s haven population exceeding two millions, and
ninny others have a population exceethog one
If this bill should become a law, the people
of Colorado, thirty thousand In number, would
have in the House of Representatives one
member, while New York, with a population
of font millions, has bin thirty-one. Colorado
Quid have in the I.l.sqoral College three
votes, while new lark hats only thirty-titres.
Color:al., won't: have. In the Senate two votes,
aline New lark lax no. Morn. I laeq salt lee of
this character have already occurred, but It la
believed none stave happened where the in
equality was so great Where such Inetillisllty
has been allowed, Congeal -9 In auppceed
have permitted on the grounds of some
high public neerensty, anti under circum
stances which promoted that it would rap
idly disappear through the growth and de
velopment of the newly admitted State.
Thus In regard to the several states in what
was formerly called toe northwest territory,
lying oast of the Mlastasippi Their rapid ad-.
van. in population rendered it certain that
the States. admitted with only one or two rep
resentatives in Congress, would, In a very
short period be entitled to a great increase in
representation. So, when California was
011 the ground of commercial
and polities) eXigenelk.S. it was well fore
seen, for that State was destined rapidly to
become a great, prosperous and Important
mming and comnierchd community. In the
case of Colorado I em not aware that any na
tional exigency, either of a political or com
mercial nature, requires a deposure from the
law of equality, which has been so generally
adhered to to our history, If the information
submitted In connection with the lull is reli
able. Colorado Instead of hicreaslug his tie
tithed In population. At an eleetimi for mem
bers of a Territorial Legislature, held In
lo,s4ivotes were cast. At the election before
mentioned. in isle, the number was 6,192,whi1e
at the regniar election, held In lAA which is
assumed for a basis of legislative action at
this time, the aggregate number of the votes
was 5.005.
Sincerely anglers for the welfare pros
perity of every yTerritory. and State, and as
ell as the prosperity and welfare of the
whole Union, S regret this apparent decline of
population In Colorado; hut it, Is manifest that
It is due to emigration which is going on from
that Territory Into other regions within the
United States. which either are, in fact, or are
believed by the Inhabitants of Colorado, to bo
richer in mineral" wealth and agricultural re
sources. if, however Colorado has not really
declined In imputation, another census or
another election under authority of Congress
would place the question beyond a doubt, and
cause but little delay In the ultimate reception
of the Territory us a State, if desired by the
The tenor of these oblong°ne furnishes the
reply which may be expected to an argument
In favor of the measure, derived from the ena
bling act, which was passed by Congress on the
21st day of March, lAN. Although Congress
then supposed that the condition of the terri
tory was such as to warrant its admission as a
State, the result Of two yea.-s. experience
shows that every mason watch existed for the
institution of a territorial Instead of a State
government In Colorado, at Its gent
then, atilt continues in force. Tee condition of
the union at the present moment is eficrilated
to Inspire caution In regard to the admission
of now Kat.. Eleven of the old States have
been for some time and atesti!' unreprosenteal
In Congress. It is a Common Interest of all
the Staten, as well those represented as those
Ir7reseuted, that the Integrity and harms
y the Union should be Teetered as com
pletely as piesslble, so that all those who are
expected to bear the burdens of the Federal
Government shall beeonsulted concerning the
admission of new States, and that in the
meantime no new State iihall be Preleature
ly and unnecessarily admitted to a participa
tion In political power which the Federal Gov
ernment wields, not for the benefit of any in
dividual States or section, but for the commor
safety, welfare end happiness.
