A LITTLE CATECHISM FOR LITTLE FREE TRADERS.
What is Free Trade? An Fuglish
machine for breaking &mu the manufac
tories of other dountries., iin order to mo
nopolize them. 1
What are the wages of Free. Trade?
Six-pence a day.
Who arc ben fitted by Free trade ? ,
Those who inapprt the raw material, and ,
export the mapufactured'artiele to snpply
the countries. . from which the former bi .
Who are thd i advocates - of Free Trader
The English aristocracy played-out 1
ticians of the'American Democracy, and
the Southern cotton lords.
What would be the effect of Free
Trade? To slut, up all American work
shops, turn our artisans and mechanies
out of employ.Ment, and several hundred
millions of ddllars in gold, annually, to
Europe, and deprive; our Government of
of money now received for duties or im
ports, with which to pay the interest on
the public debit.
It is time that the people of such States
as Pennsylvailia begin a proper move
ment on the !subject of protecting the
labor by whiel their resources are devel
oped and the ; wealth which supports the
Government I created. The - free trade
movement originates with the•Detnocracy
of New York city. The leaders of that
party are hacked by English manufac•
turers and eaPiialists, in this as were the
leaders of the rebellion backed by the
same men. Let these facts be remem
bered, and th'e free trade league,
combination of treason, will be defeated.

On truesday afternoon last, a colored girl
named Ray, and a - white girl named Homan,

Mrs, M'Dade, an aunt of the former,living near
Centerville,"abot five miles below, town. On
Wednesday mots ing they were found in the
bed of the LittletSchuylkill, on the ice, close
to shore, the colored girl lying depd,witb her
legs through the ice, in the water, and the
white , girl nearly exhausted. An inquest was
held upon the body of the girl Ray, and the
girl Homan testified that they had started' to
visit UM. M'Dade, taking with them a quart
bottle of whisky; that they had drank the
whisky until they became intoxicated,and the
colored girl slipped land fell over the •bank;
that she (Homan) had gone down the bank to

The bottle, still containing a small quantity

WASUINGTOII, Feb. 1, 1866
I The .roposed amendment to the Constitu
tion which has passed the lower house of Con
gress and will, no doubt, at no distant day
pass the Senate, bids fair to be popular. The
measure will find many friends at the South.
The Amendment simply makes it the duty
of ALLlthe States to extend the right of suf
frage to all men without distinction of race
or color, by basing representation' upon the
entire population of the voting caste, race,
color, or whatever else yon may please to
The words of the Ainendment, are almost
literally taken from some remarks
I d Hon.
Jas. G. Blaine of Maine, in the House on the
13th of January.
I say will find many
f riends Ett the South. I base that opinion
l upotOetters I have seen and remarks I have
heard from eminent Southern men. These
men 'dread, or profess to dread the conse•
quences i laf immediate and universal suffrage,
but prefer to dole out civil rights to the ne
gro as his conditioti would seem to require
or td fit him for the eiercise of them, the
State themselves being the sole judges. Un
der the , policy of the Amendment they could
do this as gradually and with as much cau
-1 tion as they should see fit, without prejudice
to their own political importance provided
they were sufficiently careful to make their
conditiOns equally binding upon both races.
Toe question "what . shall the future con
dition of the black race among us be," is past
all denial the great question now before Con
gress and the Country. That question must
be settled beyond all cavil previ t ons to re
union of the States. That the South will
eventually and of necessity accede to the will
of the loyal masses, is as certain as any future
oTent can !Ye,
The course of ti disloyal Dekmocratic
party in opposing - this extension of political
and civil privileges to the negro, as that party
has consistently opposed measures for the
suppression of the 'ate ! rebellion, and all
movements made in the interest of the coun
try and of human liberty, has had the effect
to open the eyes of the loYal masses to the
impojtance and justice of the measure. The
quesiion has thus becomb a political issue--
a stria party matter—and it is pretty well
known which party is strongest.
I am sorry to notice some denunciation of
the President in Congreip Of late, which in
my humble judgment is uncalled for. It
proceeds upon the belief; no doubt, that the
National Intalligencer, and other papers of
that sort who assume toi speak for tbe Presi
dent, are authorized so to do. This is a great
mistake. It is to be doubted whether Andrew
Johnson has seen, much less read, one of
these splenetic, platitudes, misnamed Editori
als. Did': t ever see one of those long-winded
concerns? Let me describe one briefly, and
as they are all alike one description will do
Commencing with "Selfßespect," (modern,
equivalent to chivalry, obsolete) it goes thro'
two columns i of the i'President's Policy,"
eviscerates (whatever] that may b 0 the
Southern people of their manhood in case
negro suffrage is forced upon them—plunges
into "sullen despair" and winds up with a
"rigid adherence to well ascertained princi
pies" and "determination not to lose sight of
This is all enougt for once or twice,
but on the twentieth daily appearance the
attentive reader will not fail $o observe a
strong desire for a change.
A man of some note—or rather notoriety—
one.Mr. L. C. Baker, a detective formerly,
and in fact quite recently employed by the
War Department, has himself beeti detected
in falsely , imprisoning a pretty halal° of the
genus pardon-broker, and a trial in li t the Crim
inal Court here has resulted donviction.
It serves him right. He was doulitleFa driv

after the necessity for such "war
had pa . ssed. It is shrewdly sus
he "hawked" at higher game, as I.i ,
have had supervision of all mat'

and the White House. Whateve

Mr Davis seems to stand to all the world
as the rerresentative man of Southern Treason.
The disposition made of bin will determine
whether or not treason is to be considered a
crime. Two things seems certain ; a trial in
Virginia, before a Virginia jury, cannot result
in conviction, whatever the proof and a tr al
befcire a Military Commission will not be
likely to lead to acquittal,
