TILE SUFFRAGE AMENDMENT. °A-
The resolution known as the Fifteenth
amendment to the Constitution, whereby it
is proposed to submit to the Legislatures of
the several States, for ratification or rejec
tion, a measure granting universal suffrage
to the colored men of America, passed the
House of Representatives, at Washington,
on Saturday last; and will most likely pass
the Senate ere the close of . the week. The
following is the text of the proposed amend
'', latent, which, when concurred in bv - both
' Houses, and ratified by three-fourths of tlke
Legislatures of the Unite'd States, will be held
' , as part of the Fekral Constitution :
"ARTICLE V/.-;Ef . 1. - The rightf any
citizen of the Unit States to vote shall not
be denied or abridged by the United States,
or any State, by reason of race,,color or pre
vious condition of slavery, of any citizen, or
class of citizens of the United States.
"Sze. 2., The i Congress shall
. have power
to enforce by appropriate legislatiott,the pro
visions of the Article."
In the passage 'of this amendment the will
of the white...citizens of this Republic is'not
.directly consulted, for 'Radical , legislators
well knew that if IA to the popular voice of
the people this pet scheme of negro-loving
philanthropists Avould meet with an igno
minious defeat. They imagine that theLcan
now see their waypear to the ultiruatAiuct
ceqs of a measure that will enfrarichiseiin
igm'irant face, with whom mediticre intelli
gence is the rare fxcefition, and minds. that
appear to be guided only bya'twolte.:trilvan
ced species of instinct—the result, t r f yut 'will,
of their late brulaliiing thraldom-as the
more general rule. Tliese self-styled apos
ties ofuniversal equality and fraternity eon
ceive that a grand success has been achieved,
for, it would appear unreasonable to them to
suppose that the Legisla tpres of ten States
can-be mustered to thwart the accomplish
ment of this proposed amendment. Will the
violently partizan Legislature of Ohio,—a
State whose sovereign people set the signet
of their unqualified condemnation upon a
similar proposed amendment to their State
Constitution, by a majority of 38,353—dare
to oppose the expressed will of their consti
tuents, and, in defiance of their unequivocal
ribjection, assist 'n creating an unpopular
law? Thus t ; Minnesota, with a Radical
'majority of over 5,000, but the people of
which`declared their opposition to"manhood
suffrage" by a decided majority; anti Missou
ri, whose Radical excess in 'O5 was nearly
24,000, but when at the same election, the
proposed new Constitution was voted upon,
her citizens were not prepared for the negro
milleniutn, and negro suffrage was killed by
a large -majority. So, too, with poor bleed
ing 'Kansas. 'Her freedom altriekers tried
hard to plant upon ber soil the , germ of that
"advanced civilization" so much desired by
the extreme wing of the Radical party; and
such would baste been -the verdict of every
State in the twion, save and except the New
It has been clearly delnonstrated, even in
the history of the past ;few, years, that ne
!zroes, as a race, have not sufficient intelli
vnce to enable4hem to grasp the first prin.
ciples of self-government.' The experitrient
of lhe African "Republic of Liberia" has
been a failure,Und has demonstrated the in-
capability of the negro when left to his own
dependence. The revolutions and barbari
ties of San Domingo, .where no distinction
on account of color is tnade, is a strong argu
ment against negro suffrage, and the anarchy
which for nearly a century has held undis
puted sway in Mexico can be traced to no
other source than the equality which exists
between the native and negro races. Uni
versal negro suffrage has been the well-spring
from whence has flown revolutions and coun
ter-revolutions in nearly all the &Kith Amer-,
ican Republics, and these experiments, which
havtl produced so wide-spread ruin and deso
lation with them, should prove a warning to
Radical Congressmen who 'are now attempt
ing to coerce the white citizens of this coun
try to receive the colored race as their politi
cal and soeial equals.
Social equality must be the nttural h se
quence of politicarequality in this'case, and
even already our ears are becorning,familiar
ized with accounts of marriages between the
races; with fearful stories of nameless crimes,
-borne upon every breeze from the South,
that are perpetrated by.negroes whb appear
'to imagine that their new found rights give
them license to'practice their bestial propen
sities upon unprotected virtue.
We will accept the testimony of Gen. Kil
patrick and other Radical orators, who tell
ma, with . tears in their eyes, how nobly the
colored troops - fought ; the prodigies of valor
they uhibitad, and the immense services
they rendered in assisting to suppress the re
bellion—lve will go still further: Ive will as
sort that we have known colored men whom
we could trust .t.Any extent—kind; faithful,
honest and noble in their natures, but we
would rather infilertake to count the grains
of sand upon the lake shore than try to teach
-any of them the rudiments of self-govern
ment, with any hope that they would profit
by ous lessons. Degraded they may have
been by slavery—it is immaterial now what
reason may be assigned for their lanorance,
but it Would be worse than folly to intrust
the ballot to nine-tenths of the negroes of this
country. Why then Amend the Constitution
by inserting an article therein which will al
low no loop-hole to escape when, as we con
fidently believe, a brief trial of the experi
ment' will prove its utter_ impracticability.—
During the'short time it has been on trial in
the South the negroes have 'been mere ma
chines who were niarched up to the polls by
the . agents of 'the 'Freedman's bureau—as
Wey will in the futurc'be cOntrolled by their
old tnasters,:or by , fanatics of their own race.
lint we look far beyond. the mere tneehani
ca,l action of negro-voting; in our: views of
the reselrof the proposed .'iiinendrpent,', arid
We feel that . evils will ikrise which Will cause
a war' of races, and- instead of proving trbene
fit to the.imtutored4ass it is intended tto be
friend and 'exalt, it will prove a bitter curie.
It would be weli - for the State Legislatures
to affix the seal of disapprobation to the pro
posed amendment 'until the experiment in .
the South is thoroughly tested, for if our Con
stitntion is thus amended now, whether for
'good or for evil, it must remain a permanent
article in that docunient.

Mr. Seafront on ttoli Bare
I!lpectuten of Artful Dodging.,
T.hireg,ulsiordei of business in theljouse
of Representatives tit Washioitou, on Itok.
day of last Week, wits the question to redettil
eider the vote by whielk the 11111 to provide
for the gradual resuteption of speCie pay
ment: was recommitted to the Committee on
Banking and Currency. 'Our mein4r,
Scofield; being entitled to the floor,
lowed twenty-five minutes, and Velem:0111,
present an ab s tract of his remarks.
Mr. Scofield said that the' question noiv
was "what shall we have for money in this
country?" An exclusively metallic curren
cy has no advocates now, imd State
lag is condemned,by reason - Of its !complex
ity, panics, failures; frauds and counterfeits,
and the Constitution, properly cona'ttued,
also forbids tbert revival. rho only choice
!eh is .betwe:en notes, similar to inr.
greenbacks, and bank notes something like
our National _currency. The question is,
which of these latter will be the better for°
trade? Trade needs stability in prices, and
as trade ,varies during the -year, so .should
currency. This want has never lieearfreet
successfully in any currency, bat the free
banking system supplieS it more 'nearly thanl
any other ; Treasury currency, on the con
trary, only expands or contracts as laws arc
made or repealed by Congress.. lii case the
latter system was - coe t tinced 8o businessman
would feel saft?, • while Congress, was in ses=
sion, but free lankitik is regulated hi the
demands of business .-= its =notes are plenty
when trade is briik and , whea,dill its prices
will be kept stable. It ~bas been' supposed•
that the flexibility of flip latter system could
be imparted to the former by allowing the
notes to be converted into bonds, or rice
rersa, at the will of the 'holder. The result
would be that nearly all these notes would,
be converted into bonds, these• bonds would
substantially become - currency, and from its
inflation the poiernment would be paying'
interest on, nearly the whole of it.
:The plan offered by Gen. Butler • provides
that the holder of any portion of the bonds
bearing six per cent. interest in coin they ex
change them for currency, at the rate, of 90
per cent. of its par value, and, while they are
so deposited and exchanged, receive a year
ly interest thereon at the rate of 2 and 35.100
per cent In , this way a man might pul"
chase a bond , with f t,OOO, immediately de
-posit it and get. hack $9OO of his money. Be
would' then be out only $lOO, and would
draw 3 1 eariy interest from the Treasury equal
to $23.50- The gentleman says , there axe
$1,750,000,000 or these" convertible bonds.
The large interest 'offered would cause the
conversion of all these, and we would then
have, $1,575,000,900 of currency, with
000,000 _which the - gentleman proposes to
issue:in advance in place of greenbacks. If
the whole of the $1,750,000,000.were
ted, and 90 per cent. of their. par 'Kafue re
turned in currency, the bondholders would
be out of pocket $175,000,000, and would re ;
ceive from the Government $41,125,000.
The interest on their money.actually invest
ed would thus be 9 and 35-100 per cent., and
the bondholder would thus make a good
deal of money by the operation—the Gov
ernment save some interest, but the country
would be afflicted with $1,925,000,000 of ir
redeemable paper. ,If you make it an o'sct
to convert the bonds they will all be hew
verted, and we will, then have a destructive
flood of paper. If holding the bonds pays
best the notes will be converted, the bands
used as currency, and the inflation will be
nearly as disailrous as in the other case,
while the Goveniment must carry a heavier
load of interest than ever before. It has been
pro - posed that this objection would bo avoid
ed by making only a limited ntimberpf these
notes and bonds convertible. Within this
limit the result would be the same—with the
addition that all who desired to contract the
currency or secure a fall in prices would con
vert the notes and hold the bonds. They
could afford to do this, as they would secure
a fair interest for their money.
When, then, we shall Settle down to a
specie paying paper curiency,l am in favor
of a system of: National banking, free to all,
and paying into the Treasury as much as the
Government could save by issuing its own
notes. The bill-holder would be made more
secure, the Treasury earn more and the
',krauts of trade be better supplied than by
. any-other system. As this system cannot be
adopted until specie payment is resumed, I
ask when shall' resumption begin ? Many
plans have been proposed—all feasible,
-though not equally good. The N. Y. Tri
bune advocates resumption ut once, in the
belief that gold will come into the Treasury,
as fast as it will he drawn out. Possibly this
might be -the ease, but I am sure that if we
continued to pay -specie the amount of cur
rency would soon be reduced, prices would
fall, and the debtor class ,sntrer. . Senator
Morton's plan is "to save up as much - gold
'as we can until a certain period fixed for re:
eumption and we would then be able to meet
all demands." We'would certainly be able
to continue to- pay in specie in this case,
but gold would naturally flow:-back to its
original pool; we would be unable to float
our present amount of paper, and the same
result would follow as in the former case:
_Secretary McCulloch's plan is to reduce
the paper currency to the amount we sup
pose could be kept afloat, and then resume.
This plan iv good enough, bat the effect
would be the srtme- , --a contracted currency
and low prices. The plan introduced by .Mr.
Garfield, (of Ohio) is as .unobjectionable as
any, but, like the 'others, the result would be
an ultimate contraction of the currency,
.This iv the cause of alt the plans being re
jected; and it is not in, the power of legis
lation to keep $700,000,000 of paper afloat
and redeem it in gold, on demand. It is only
by the people endeavoring to pay their
debts while prldei are still high that re
sumption csiu be prep;sed for. If nobody
was in debt, nobody would suffer from the.
low prices and contraction which will nat
urally follow any plan of resumption, -We
copy Mr. Scofield's concluding remarks Ver
"You see, Mr. Speaker, I ant neither advo
cating nor opposing these multitudinous
plans of resumption. My object in rising at
this time .was to prove. to the House -that
there can be no permanent resumption with-
out contraction, and that all feasible plans of
ktzumptionjead.iiirecily or indireetly,to that ,
result . •
"I think we had better not act upon any
plan this short session. , Standing still is a
step towards resumption—a very short step,
I will admit; but still is something. ,Every
year add's to the world's stock of gold and
silver. Every, year, by the increase of our
population, makes ourshare of it larger. We
can, therefore, float titorepaper on a specie
basis, nest year than this. This furnishes• a
small ezense for waiting, but I have a' bette,r
one—My - constituents desire it." •

INCREASE OF HOUSE EXPENSES.

the increase of expenses in the ',purer House,
at Washington, since Emerson Etheridge, of

members and mileage, was $lOB,OOO.
Mr. •McPlierson took possession of the

were $328,384; in 186$, $481,854; in 1 866,
$462,431; in - 1867, $364,810; in 1888, $685,-
