J f e
armed before the date of the Constitution of the
United States, and in force at the period of its
- adoption, And also to the Constitutions of Georgia
• • ~.._--.., and Pennsylvania, funned soon after its adoption,
it will be found that in respect to "the qualifica.
Lions of electors for the most numerous branch of
the State Legislatures," there was no distinction
on account of color in those nine States. Connect
ficut and Rhode Island, being under the old Roy
al charters, could have had none. Even South
Carolina, by its Constitution of
,1776, allowed ne
gmes to vote : but in '7B it restricted the privi
lege to "every white man," &e. - In Delaware,
by actrof . February 3, 1786, em anc ip a t e d s laves
and their issue were debarred "the privilege of
voting at elections or being elected." And even
this seems, like most of the laws oT slavery, a
violation of the letter of the Constitution of that
State. ' •
It is well known among informed men, that the
practice of admitting free persons of color to vote,
obtained universally at first, under the general
qualifications prescribed for electors, among all
the original "Old Thirteen." In Virginia, negroes
voted, side by side with white men, until 1850!
In Louisiana, a few blacks exercised the franchise

PROF. A. S. EATON:—DEAR SIR: The eample of ore
that con left with me, marked 'Discovery E," gave by
assay, in Silver $164 56-100 Silver per ton.
Run-trEL.rimi, April,3, Pifil—The sample of silver
ore from Montana Territory examired at your request,
contains 172;4 ounces of Silver in WOO lbs. of ore value
$2.Y' 1,4 Gold per ton. The above ore is said to come
from the.Eatoo bode.
Messrs. Adelberg and Raymond. mining Engineers,
New York, say
"We assume that the Lead ore FjII yield 815 io Silver
to the-tou., and the Silver ores S.SXI. These Spares are
moderate entyugh, since, according our assays, theBll
- ores contain from $913 to $3310 specie value." -
From the above assays, some Idea may be formed of
the immense value of this property, and of the certainty of
a large yield. Bnt even that idea will be merely approx
isuative, without a due consideration of the following facts
The celelirated Comeloth. Silver Lode, in Nevada, wor
ked by the "(Innld and Carry," "Empire," "Yellow Jack
et," "Ophir," "Crown Point," "Savage" and some other
cumin - mire, sold on the Bth of April, 1865, at prices avers
giag over Two Thourand Do:lors per foot.
These mines yield an e5-ernge'of aboui $6 to the ton
which include. , first, second and third Clasen OFores.
Now, the everdge yield of the three elmsea of ore of the
Eatnnarol Altrout Lodes trill certainly be more tlamt $65
per tau ; indeed, from the large number of amays thus far
made, not only here, but In the actual workingx of the
mine, it will probably reach en or FPO pen ton. The
2400 feet owned by the Company woad, therefore, be
worth, at the price of the Corngtoek Lode,• nearly Five
3fillions of Dollars.
The Company have sent, a mill of twenty-tour stamps to
the mines, and crpert returns in /direr in September. This
will boable to crush thirty tons of ore per day, at an ex
pease for mining, crashing and smelting of ten dollars
(810) per ten. Then, taking the yield at only 860 per
ton, the result would be as follows
30 tone per day, at $6 O
Coe, $lO per toa
Net daily profit
or $450,000 per annum, payable, not in coven cy, but In
the coin itself.
The property of the Company is amply sufficient for a
dozen companies, and could not be exhausted to a lifetime
Prospectors are also engaged by the Company, taking up
other Lodes for them
The operations at tee mines are under the saperinten•
deuce of the Hon. Samuel McLean, Delegate to Congress
from the Territory, whose thorough acqueintazee with
mining renders it certain that the Interests of the Compa
ny will be pushed in the most energetic manner

HOW TOM CORWIN ICID HIS SISTER OF
AN OBNOXIOES LOVER
Every one has heard of the eloquent, pathetic,
and humorous stump orator of Ohio. He was
pronounced by Mr. Clay (a most competent au
thority,) to be the finest stump speaker Ife had
ever heard; and in this opinion I moat heartily
coincide, alter having heard Clay, Crittenden,
Jones of Tennessee, Polk, Benjamin, Soule, Ran
dall, Hunt, Tom Marshall, Gen. Lamar, Bates,
Douglas and a host of others. •
Well, this great orator carried his love of fun
into every department of life. In the private cir
cle, where he knew every person, and where ho
unhosomed himself fully, he was the most delight
ful conversationalist I ever listened to. I do not
know that hallow, as age and infirmity are cropp
ing on, indulges this proclivity to humor so mdch
as he used to do. But some twenty years ago he
used to tell with great gusto, the following story:
"In early life—so early that I cannOtremember
the removal—my father "pulled up stakes," and
carrying with him the household goods, went from
Bourbon county, Kentucky, where I was born,
to Ohio. Notwithstanding a rough and tumble
struggle with the world, he had a hard time to
get on, owing to a numerous and rapidly increas
ing family Well, family matters had not muclg
improved when I had reached my thirteenth or
' "At this time there lived in the neighborhood
a young man by the name of Pickering. He had
inherited a well stocked , farm, was good-looking
and made a strong profession of religion. This
latter qualification caused him to find peculiar
favor in the eyes of my father, who always was
blinded by professions of extra piety.
"This fellow had a strong hankering after one
of my sisters, who• was a very pretty girL To
her he was peculiarly distasteful. She seemed
always annoyed at his presence. , Yet he was
ever at her side. She dared not dismiss him en
tirely, for fear of the paternal anger. Things
went on this way a year,or two, and as I partook
largely of my sister's hatred to him, I resolved to
get rid of him in some way. I cast about for a
plan Mr some time, but nothing occurred which
gave me the slightest hope of being successful.
At last returning home late one summer night
from mill, I found the family at their nightly de r
votions. Passing by the windows of the room in
which tlby were assembled, I saw that Pickering
was there, and pretty soon discovered that he
was nodding, and finally his bead dropped. Now
was my opportunity. I stole slily into the hill,
and reaching the hall door, which was slightly
ajar, and close by which Pickering was " un bend
ed knee," I reached in, and- quickly pulling his
chair from under him. liezrolled heavily, as a - sound
sleeper would upon the floor. The nOise alarm
ed all. The old gentleman stopped in the midst
of his almost interminable prayer, and saw the
position of Pickering. All the-fatally laughed oug
right; even my mother smiled.
" Pickering endeavored to pick himself up as
rapidly as possible, but he had touched the old
man upon his tenderest point. It was evident,
from his ebbing his eyes, that he had slept under
the old_ gentleman's ministrations ; and had not
my father a reputation far and wide for the fer
vency and strength of his ministrations,, and was
not Pickering his professing brother? Slowly
yet most dignifiedly did the old man approach
him. " .Begone hypocrite!" ht. cried, in thunder
ing tones. "Never eater m.y house again."
"Pickering was thunderstruck. He felt that
he could make no apology which would not add
to insult. He had no suspicion of the extra force
which had aided him in his fall. He at once
found his hat, took up his line of march, and com
pletely crest-fallen, passed by me as I stood grin
ning in the shadow of the porch.
"At a suitable time I entered, got my supper,
was told`by a brother in hurried whispers, what
had happened, and then I stole off to bed, affect
ing ignorance, and laughing most heartily, as I
ensconced myself in the sheets, at the complete
success of my plan. - . .
" Next day I cautiously imparted my secret to
'my sister. She was in her own room at the time,
and she threw herself upon the bed and rolled in
agonies and convulsions of laughter. She had
been emancipated forever from the obnoxithis
lover. The old gentleman did not hear the real
state of the facts for full twenty years afterwards;
but when lie did he laughed heartily."
TM::-30'1 AND THE END OF TILE WAIL
The greatest war of modern history has ended.

vastness of its power. ire knew it was great;
now all the world knows it. Our neighbors across

at that—now take off theiclfats and beg to assure
us of their "most distinguished consideration."

European markets. We did carry on such awar

never asked for a dollar; and they now wish to

quoted as brisk and in demand, and well they

morning that so many miles of railroad - have been
destroyed,. it will be that "so many new avenues
to material wealthint, ve been opened." The South
itself will be 'compelled to bear its share of the
burden it imposed on the country, and its cotton
—so much greater than gold, and still so much
less than king—will have no attribute of royalty
but what it pays into the revenue. A tax on
Southern cotton will be quite as easily collected
al on Northern petroleum or manufgetures, and
besides the article must be had—the world wants
=lt would take but a fraction of our property-to
pay our national debt .now ; but if we do not pay
a dollar of the 'prnciple in ten years, that traction
will be reduced one halt—by the development of
the national resources. We shall doubtless wind
up She War and square all accounts with a nation
al debt of less than three thousand millions on about
16 per cent, of the present national wealth; but,
according to its rate of increase (127 per cent.)
from 1850 to 1860,—in 1875 this debt will beless
than nine per cent. But our ability to pay the
national debt needs no demonstration ; but as
sonie - of us hair looked upon the dark side, we
may as well have a glance at the sunshine.
The national loans will soon be ont of the mar

Mr. Pain sailed from Boston in a smack for

left bins with a good supply of personal and bed
clothes, some axes and other tools, a gun, with am

could be spared, together with a Bible, "Paradise
Lost," and the '• Pilgrim's Progress." Prayers

SPEECH OF A CONVERTED REBEL.
At a meeting of Southern men M Memphis,
ceutly, Colonel Grace, of Arkansas, spoke as Ml
lot% s :
;FELLOW CITIZENS: I am the man who drew
up the 'ordinance of Seccession in the Legislature
of Arkansas. I have been ini the field fighting
against the Union for nearly four years, but now
lam a conquered and whipped man. [Laugh
ter.] As I was gallant in going out to fight, I
now propose to be gallant at surrendering and
submitting to the arms of Me Government that
we cannot whip. [Laughter-]. i.I have no con
tempt for Federal authority nat , , if I ever had,
I do not think there is a manly bosom in the
South but that has' higher respect for Northern -
gallantly than when wo went into the fight.—
There may be some men in the North who may
think that the South had a hand in the death of
our lamented President, but Iknow that the peo
ple of the South mourn over his death, and feel
that they have lost a friend. The North have
maintained this conflict nobly, and the South have
nothing to be ashamed of. lam proud of the
South—there is something in the very atmosphere
that makes men great. So, I say that the South is
not an insignificant:people ; and if so great peo
ple as they are cannot whip the world, who can
not come to the inevitable conclusion that the
North is greater 1 [Laughter.] And lam not
going to stultify myself by saying I have been
whipped by somebody: Now it is our duty to re
spect and go back to this great national church—
repent, get absolution, and be baptized afresh.
[Laughter.] I know we will receive honorable
and just terms. When I bad an interview with
the President, his heart seemed to be ever over
flowing with love toward the Southern people.
We first went out of the Union and threw down
the gage of battle, and the North picked it up ; we
fired the first gun and took the first fort—Fort
Sumter—which was taken back a few days ago.
[Laughter.] The North seemed tee be unwilling
to fight; they did not think we would fight, and
so we.thoutzht of them, but, to our sorrow, we
have found out different; they seemed to spring
up like mushrooms from all parts of the earth.
&fore this War I never saw a Federal officer
hardly. I never felt the slightest oppression of
the Federal Government; in fact I nner thonght
we:had one until I went out to fight; then I found
we'did have a Government.,

ANECDOTE OF PRF.SIDENT LINCOLN.-A
woman in a faded shawl audlood, somewhat ad
winced in life, was admitted in her turn, to the
President. Her husband had been killed, and she
hat. tome to ask the President to release to her`
the oldest eon. Being satisfied of the truthfulness
of her story, he said, " Certainly, if her prop was
taken away she was justly entitled to one of her
boys." He immediately wrote an order / tor the
discharge of the young man. The poorlwoman
thanked him very vatefully, and went away.—
On reaching the army she found that this son had
been in a recent engagement, was wounded, and
was taken to a hospital. She found the hospital,
but the boy was dead, or died while she was
there. The surgeon in charge made a memoran
dum of the facts upon the back of the President's
order, and, almost broken-hearted the poor wo
man found her way again into his presence. He
was much effected by her appearance and story,
and said, " I know what you wish me to do now,
and shall do it without your asking: I shall re
lease to you your second son." U pon . this he
took up his pen and commenced writing theor
der. 'While he was writing the poor woman
stood by his side, the tearsrunning down her face,
and passed her hand softly over his held, stroking
his rough hair as I have seen a fond mother to do
a son. By the time he had finished writing his
own heart and eyes were full. He handed her
the paper. " Now," said he, " you have one and
I one of the other two left; that is no more than
right." She took the paper, and reverently pla
cing her band again ,upon" his head, the tears still
upon her cheeks, said, " The Lord bless you Mr.
„President. May you live a thousandyears, and
may you always be the head of this great nation."
A TOUCH of PETROLEUSI.--Close to the lands

has made him rich. His household pets consist
of a terrier dog and stupid daughter, both of whom
engage his attention. The former provided for,
he determined to "accomplish" his daughter. To
this end he came to the city. He bought opium..
a harp, a guitar, and a car load of music books.
and so forth, winding up his business-by engaging
a first-class intellectual and music tutor, with all
of which he started for the "region." The docu
ments were of course soon arranged fur business.
The tutor set to work and toiled like a Trojan,
but with no success. Despairing of ultimate tri
umph, he went to the oil king and made a clean
breast of it.
"Why, what the world's the matter?" asked
"Well," answered the tutor, "Kitty has a piano,
and guitar, and harp, and music, and books, and
all that, but she wants capacity—that's all."
"Well, by the Lorg Harry, cried the oil king,
"if that's all, just buy it. I've got the stuff, and

respondent of the Washington Chronicle says:
Of the women in. Richmond I might write vol

have been severely misled by..the piess and the
pulpit. They have credited the falsehoods of the
one and been - seduced by the religious glossesof
the other. The Confederate cause got tobe iden

strings to see it Dill They have lost•no'opportu

the sterner sex. 'I hate" the Yankees,' said ,a
young girl amid her companions. 'lf I ever have
any children, even though Lee is beaten, I will
bring them up in eternal hatred of those who have
subdued us.' Our hostility,' said another,'is

who have deprived us of our rights ; I should nev

that they could hardly believe their own eyes,
