' jVejoftttf , By the' Semite and House of
Kepreentatives of the United States of A
werica, in Congress assembled two-thirds of
both Houses concurring, That the following
article be proposed to the i Legislatures of
the several States as an amendment to the
Constitution of the United States, which,
when ratified by three-fourths of the said
Legislatures, shall be valid as a part of the
Constitution, namely: :
"Article, Section J. All persons born
or nrturalized in the United ' States, and
subject to the jurisdiction thereof,' are citi
tens of the Uuited States, and of the State
wherein they reside, " No State shall make
er enforce any law which shall abridge the
privilege or iuimunities of citizens of the
United States. Nor shall any State deprive
any person ot life, liberty, r property with
out due process of law nor deny to any per
son within ita jurisdiction the equal protec
tion of the laws, y ;'
"Sec. 2. Represeotatives shall be appor
tioned among the several States according
to their respective numbers, counting the
whole number f persons in each State, ex
cluding Indiana not taxed ; but whenever
the right to vote at any election for electors
f President and Vice-President, or for U
nited States Representatives in Congress,
executive and judicial officers or the mem
ber of the Legislature thereof, is denied to
any of the male inhabitants of such State,
being twenty-one years of age, and citizens
of the United States, or in any way abridg
ed, except for participation in rebellion or
other crime, the basis of representation
therein shall be reduced in the proportion
which the number of such male citizens
shall bear to the whole number ot male citi
tens twenty-one years of age in that State.
"Sec 3. No person shall be a Senator or
Representative in - Conjrress, elector of
President and Vice-President or hold any
office, civil or military under the U. S., or
tinder any State, who, .having previously
taken an oath as member of Congress, or as
an officer of the United States, or as a mem
ber of any State legislature,' or as an exec
utive or judicial officer of any State, to sup
port thej constitution of the United States,
hall have engaged in insurrection or rebel
lion aeainst the same, or given aid or com
fort to the enemies thereof ; but Congress
may by ' a vote ot two-tniras ot eacn House
remove such disability. -
"Sec. 4. .The Yalidity of the public debt
of the United States authorized by law, m
eluding debts incurred for the payment of
pension and bounties for services in sup
DKdnr insurrection or rebellion, shall not
be questioned, bat neither the United St tes
nor any State shall assume or pay any debt
incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion
against the United States, or any claim for
the loss or emancipation of any slave, but
all such debts, obligations, and claims shall
t held illegal and void. , . - - - ,

could vote for, without grossly, compromi
sing the dignity cf his Sta.'e and outraging
the sentiments of his people. ' If is one
thing to submit to abide a result to cov
enant to do so with full purpose to keep the?
engagement honestly. . : It is another to jus
tify and applaud the means- which brought
it about. , How could the Convention,North
or South, vote that 'the war has maintain
ed the authority of the Constitution,' when
the Convention was called together for the
express purpose of endeavoring to restore
the Constitution, now trampled tinder foct?
How covld Southern men thus sanction the
constitutionality of the coerciou of a State ?
How could our delegate 'unanimously and
'enthusiastically1 rote 'to repudiate the
federate debt? , And ..especially . how could
they thus join in , 'recognizing the services
of the Federal armies, and the obligation of
the robbed and penniless widows and or-
Ehans of eur own dear martyred, murdered
eroes, to pay some deh as justly due by
them to those who male them so ? Our peo
ple submit to the violence that has beggar
ed them, and to the military force that has
put the noblest and best of our sons beneath
the sod J but they trill never so dishonor the
graves of our heroes, as Enthusiastically' to
applaud such utterances as tee have, referred
to.1 The North might well adopt such dee-i
laratbns, and we should not quarrel with
them for it ; but enough, a thousand times
enough, that the South should be silent
amid the denunciations 'of her cause, and
the exultations over her defeat'! : ;
: Yet the Examiner says it shall co-operate
with those who formed the Philadelphia
Convention.' That way runs the only road
that can possibly lead the rebel chiefs back
to power. ' ' '-' !
"If you are opposed to taxation without
representation rore for lliester Clynier.--Copperhead
Organ. ' " f
This is a fair specimen ot the arguments
used to elect Clyraer. -What is meant by
taxation without representation? Has any
Republican offered . to disfranchise a loy
al man ?, Of course not. Clymer's friends
do not make such a charge, but we do bold
ly and emphatically charge that Hiester Cly
mer voted for the disfranchisement of Penn
sylvania tax-payers, because they were guil
ty, in his opinion, of the horrible offense of
shouldering muskets and marching beyond
the limits of their state to peril their lives
in defense of the National Uniou ! This
was Clymer's political view of taxation with
out representation. He voted to diafanchise
the men who were battling to save their
country, notwithstanding these men were all
subject to taxation. Now, however, he and
his friends are raving with madness, because
the rebels, who for four years fought to de
stroy the Government,, arc not at once in-
vested with the rights and franchises which
they six years ago cast, from them. These
are some of the nice, distinctions in Hiester
Clymer's patriotism and justice.-Telegraph.
Fighting Masked. Batterie3. . .. .
When Geary marched in triumph through
the heart ofthe rebelliou,One of his greatest
impediments was presented in the masked
batteries which he was compel tea to demol
ish. In an open field, the rebels of the
South were easily crushed. Concealed by
masked batteries they managed to prolong
the war. But even the masked battery was
not nroof against Yankee valor. In the po
litical campaign just opened, the rebels of
the .North are disposed to try the plans ot
the rebels of the South. At York, the oth
er day, a fir, teas opened on the Itoys in blue
by Copperheads concealexk behind masked
latteries. But even wh'lo thus protected,
it only required one chaise from the boys in
blue to put the skulkers to flight 1 Hence-
iorth dunne the campaign,. Jet tne menus
of Clyrner be known as the masked battery
skulkers! Telegraph. i
