Harrisburg Jan. 9, 1?66.
The "Re-construction" (or Destruction)
Committee, hare found a voice in Con
grew, recomending a constitutional amend
ment, to apportion representation and di
rect taxes among the several States, ac
cording to their respective numbers, count
ing the whole number of persons in each
State, excluding Indians not taxed, and
providing that "whenever the elective
franchise shall be denied or abridged in
any State, on account of race or color, all
persons of such race or color, shall be ex
cluded from the basis of representation."—
Mr. Rogers, the Democratic member of
the Committee, justly characterizes the
recommendation as a scheme for degrading
tbe white man, —but it is a scheme, nev
ertheless, which, as like as not, the De
structives will run through. The truth is,
there is just now a sort of mania for Fe
tish (Negro) worship among the radicals
in Congress, which can not well be reason
ed down. It will have its way—and per
haps the best plan to kill it off" is, to let
the Fetish have full swing. Anon it will
weary, perhaps, and seek for some other
object than the Negro for its adoration.
DISGRACEFUL. —A Washington letter to
a New York paper, speaks of the condition j
of some of the poor wounded soldiers there,
and the favor shown the negroes, in the
follow terse language :
There is no dodging this matter. Pub
lie opinion will not allow the government
nigger soup kitchen to remain rfpen much
longer, when one can see in a walkthrough
any of the pub ie thor<<ugh'aies in New-
York, Boston, Phiiad.-lph a, Washington
or any large city, hundreds of one—armed
one-legged, young white men in ragged
blue alothes whose beggai • pond ns w ii
„carccly keep their souls in the little left of
their bodies, and who pitiouslv hi g, as I
beard one of them at the gate of the Capi
tol yesterday ; "For God's rake. give me
ten cents to buy a loaf of bread !"
#*-The statement going the iciinds of the |
negro organs thai Mlm friends of negro ruf- j
frage in Washington, did not go to the
polls"at the special election on that question
htld on the 21st of D cemb r, is most effec
tually squelched by Mayor Wallacks com
munication to the Senate, transmitting the
result to that body. It shows clearly that
there were no more #/ them to go to the poll%.
The total vote cast was (>,626, as follows:
Against ngro suffrage, c> 601
For negro suffrage, 35
Majority against negro suffrage, 5.556
This is the largest vole, with two exeep
tions, ever polled in Washington City. The
vote for Mayor in the last live preceding
elections were:
1856 5,840
1858, ♦..6.813
1860, 6,376
1862 4 819
1864. 5 820
Those who have memorilizrd for the pajs
age of the negro suffrage bill, are the hang
ers on, department clerks and others, who
exercise the right of suffrage elsewhere,
and have"but little association, less sympa
thy, and no community of interests or alii.ll
- With the citizens of Washington." Il re
maias to be seen what regard will be paid
to this unanimous expression of theoftizens
by the present Gingress
Ier 4 sittersuns, the African may be our
brother. Sevril highly respectable gen
tlemen and sum talent ci femails tells us
so, and for argymerit sake 1 might be in
jooeed to grant it, though I don't believe
it myself. But the African isn't wife and 1
unclt. He isn't sevril of our cousins, and !
all our first wife's relashuns. He isn't
our grandfather and our wife in the coun- ;

Hear us Tor the,Ti uth.
Had any one told us ten years since
that the people of America would have
submitted to the insults, oppressions, usurp
ations and extravagances heaped upon
them and stood like fuolsto see their earn
ings moitgagcd for generations yet to
come, the world would have called him
mad and spat in his face.
But the shuttle of time carried the woof
, of corruption anil partisan and extravagance
through the warp of dishonest ambition,
till the land became spotted with blood and
ruins, and the earth filled with the victims
of meddlesome fanaticism. Our entire na
tional debt five years iince wonld not pay
the interest, for three months, on what we
now owe!
Iwo thirds the enf ire wealth of th" coun
try is to-day exempt from taxation, and the
Republicanism which was to have so many
blessings in its train has singled out the
wealthy to be supported by the poor.
The holder of Government bonds sits in
his easy chair, his slippered feet on silver

The tax-gatherer passes him by with a
smile, to return and empty his tithes into
the rich man's pocket. By a wicked, ww. j

of America. The Republican party by

added to your tuxes. It ran the country
in d-.-bt. It exonerated the rich from tax
ation. It has left a legacy of debt which
will la>t six hundred and fifty years at the
rate now going on.
Republicanism plunged the country in
wais and IMW it calls upon the soldiers who
have saved the country to pay it# debts—
to save it from thieves as they did from
men in the rebellion !
I he men who lought do not hold bonds,

Soldiers who went to war had bounties.
These bounties were raised by taxes —
While soldiers fought, Congress raised
money for them by running the country in
debt. The men return from the war to
find the ones who hind them to go exempt
from taxation, an 1 the entire debt of the
country thrown upon the shoulders ot those
who suffered the most, .
And this is-Republican equality.
Poor men —laboring men of America !
It is for you to say whether you alone shall
pay the war debt, and support m idleness
those who fattened on your sons, fathers,
and who live on your labor. It is for you
to say whether the rich shall help pay the
debt towering over- us, or whether you will
leave a burden of taxation on your posteri
ty forever.— La Crosse Democrat.

W AY Republicans decline to vtle on the
an. I
letter fr ru Mrs. Jefferson Davis.
The following letter has boi n addressed
! by Mrs Jefferson Davis to the Secretary
! and Agent of the Ladies' Southern Aid
! Association :
MILL VIEW, GA„ DEC. 4. 18C5.
MY DEAR Sin : ] am in receipt of your
; very kind letter in the name ot the Ladies
Southern Aid Association, having "for its
objection the purpose of placing" me "and
family in ciicuni>taces somewhat common
j surate with their estimate of' me and mine
i and begging that 1 will, at iny earliest eon
| veniencc, designate a place to which the
i means so collected may be conveyed, so
that they may "safely and. satisfactorily"
reach me.
From our desolated and impoverished
friends I scarcely expected such an expres
sion of material sympathy, though my pow
ers of gratitude have been almost daiiytax
ed to thank those who have, with so much
heart eloquence, pleaded with the President
for him who, though unsuccessful, has giv
en you all he could—his best energies—
and whose only hope of future happiness
lies in the sweet trust, often expressed, that
he has not lost your confidence and love.
Ignorant ot a I which his own people have
done for him in his painful captivity, his
devotion is unabated. "The unfortunate
have always been deserted, and betrayed,
but did ever mau have less to complain of
when he had lost the power to serve? Toe
multitude are silent. Why should they
speak, save to him who heirs best the
words most secretly uttered ?
"My own heart tells nic the sympathy
exists; that the prayers of the family
hearth are not hushed, Be loving and
confiding still to those from whom I have
much more than I deserve ; tar more offi
cial honors than I ever deserved Those
for whose cause I sulfer are not unworthy
ot the devotion of all which I had to give."
This is the message of love which is sent
through prison gates to our own people.—
I say our people, btcause both of us have
Vee- rought up with you ; one of us un
born in Mississippi, the other came to her
in in'ancy. These are ray own people, and
it i a privilege <f which no change ol oir
cumstanc s can deprive nie. To the ac
cepted prayers of our widows and oipu.t >s,
our s-.lfcring !••; heroic worn- n, our brave
ami true in. .o ,r innocent little children
I look lor the restoration to niv little eliil
er II of their agonize I hut Christian holier.
If a mere ful Providence so oidaiu it, we
hope to ive and die among you. mutually
eonsohi g and lu string each other s burdrn*,
I pray tiod we may be restored to the
bonis* of our ehildho d, "for iiuw can we sing
nurt.wii song in a s'tango land? We
would not have our dear triends betrayed
by their sympathy in off ting for our use. '
too much from th ;r "basket and j
store.' I and mine have, so far, been mir
aculously cared for and shielded from want.
We seem ever environed by the love
winch is reflected upon us from that which
lighted iny husband in his dungeon—sof- i
tuned his prison walls with suany pictures
of loving eyes and ouistietched arms.
Grief and gratitude seem to impose upon
me silence. I would, but cannot my
more. I will enclose w.thin this note the
names and directions of gentleman to
whom the contributions of which you
speak may le inclosed. And instead of
the eloquent voice wkieh so often has
poured forth bis love to his dear people,
now mute, 1 offer a wife's and a motner's
and a country-woman* gratitude to you
and those you represent.
I have the lienor to be, very gratefully
and sincerely yours,

Will our Democratic cotemporaries ox
amin-i this list, and hold the (mis) Rcpre
scnlatives cl their various districts to a strict
account before their constituents?
It will le set ii that MERCUU'S name
stands in favor of the bill. Do the people
of this District endorse that vote ? Are
they in favor of forcing negro suffrage on
the people of the District, against their
most distinctly expressed wish? Is the
majority to rule ? Or are 75 votes in fa
vor of negro suffrage to outweigh in the
Rump Congress 7000 against it ?
icals achieved a triumph in the Rump
House at Washington on Thursday, by
the passage of Mr Kelley's bill, t xtending
the right of suffrage to the negroes of the
District of Columbia ; and that, too, in the
face of an almost unanimous rote of the
people of the District against it. The
following is the bill, as passed :
Be it enacted by the Senate and House
of Representatives of the United States of
America, in Congress assembled, That from
all laws and parts of laws prescribing the
qualifications of electors for any office in
the District of Columbia, the word "white"
be and the same is hereby stricken
out, aud that from aud after the passage of
this act no person shall be disqualified
from voting at any election held in the
said District o"Vi account of color.
SEC 2. And be it further enacted, That
all acts of Congress and all laws of the
State of Maiyland in force in said District
and all ordinances of the cities of Wash
ington and Georgetown, inconsistent with
the provisions of this act, are hereby re
pealed and annulled.
An attempt to limit the operations of
the bill to those who can read and those
who pay taxes on real or personal property
was voted down —yeas 53, nays 117 —and
the bill passed finally by a vote of 116
yeas to 54 nays. All the Democratic
members and s iine twenty moderate Re
publicans vuted against it.
We bi gn to think that Thad. Stevens
was right wli-n ;i>* declared "that tips is
n>t nw'i.te Man's Government." The

ery abolished as an institution in the Uni
ted States? If so how it done unless
the amendment to that effect was ratified
by States in the Union ?
Was the proclamation of President Lin
coin, abolishing slavery of any binding
f >rc„* unless binding on States subject to
the powers of the General Government of
the Union? If so, how could they b ' sub
ject to the General Government unless they
were in the Union?
If the Confederate States were out of
the Unioii and not subject to its Constitu
tion and laws, but to their own govern
ment established, why had they not power
to create a debt winch mortgaged the land
and property of its inhabitants, and which,
being held by foreign nation*, at least so
far became a debt not to be repudiated ei
ther by its own citizens or by the nation
conquering ii by force of arm*?
Had the Confederacy .succeeded in se
ceding from the Union, and accomplished
the object of their rebellion, and subse
quently we had through purchase or an
nexation united, should we not have been
obliged to assume its debts as well as its
territory ? If so, under a peaceful annexa
tion arc we not equally liable through con
quest, if those States were out of the Un
ion and a distinct people with an establish
ed government ?
Can any legislation by Congress, any ex
pressions in any of the proclamations or
messages of President Lincoln, any state
ment in any of our diplomatic correspon
dence, any orders from onr Generals in
the field, t>e produced, which, for a mo
ment, can be construed into an admission
on our part that those States firere, or have
been out of the Union, and were not sub
ject to the requirement of the Constitution?
Then why delay to consummate the pur
pose of war to reestablish the Union under
the Constitution, and again unitedly press
forward toward the accomplishment of the
proud destiny contemplated by the foun
ders of the Republic ?— Boston Post.
