VOTE FOR ALL OF THE AMENDMENTS :
The special election for Constitutional
amendments takes place on Tuesday the
2d day of August. Every voter should
be certain to cast his vote on this he'.
portant occasion, and vote for all three
of the amendments. All loyal papers
urge voting for the amendments, ley
allude to the
,first proposed amendment
confirming the right of the Soldiers to
But there is much dangearom
using that expression. There are three
amendments to be voted upon separate
ly. A vote "for the atnend o inent" is no
vote at all--it will be cast out, and not
counted. If you wish IVid the Soldiers
in the use of the elective franchise, vote
the ticket head 4 ed "First Amendment,"
and coutabeing within it, the words "for
the amendment." Nor will voting "for
the tgendments," in a lump, answer—
each amendment mast be voted for, or
against, by itself, to have the vote cast
of any avail.
The First Amendment is for the Sol
diers, to be voted on accordingly.
The Second and Third Amendments
are designed to aid in proper legislation,
to prevent ambiguity and confusion, and
check the frauds and trickery practised
by some men, in and out of the legisla
ture. They are, therefore, very import
The Second A.mendpeat is as follows
" No bill shall be passed by the legis
lature containing more than one subject,
which shall be clearly expressed in the ti
tle, except appropriation bills."
Now, is it not manifest that in com
mon honesty, and for the protection of
the Mass of the people, that the object
of bills should be fairly seen on their
face,and that every subject matter should
stand or fall on its own merits? No
fair man, it seems to us, should hesitate
to vote for the second amendment.
The Third Amendment reads :
'" No bills shall be passed by the leg
islature granting any power or privileges
in any case where the authority to grant
lineh powers or privileges has been or
may hereafter be conferred upon the
Courts of this Commonwealth."
This, also,is obviously just and politic.
Yeti much of the - time of the lesielature
is occupied upon corporations which
could and should be uniform •in their
character, and the propriety of granting
which could be much better and more
fairly determined by the Court [or Jud
ges and . Grand Jurors] of their respect
ive counties, than by a 133 men who are
strangers to most of the corporators and
to the locality interested.
iNtiw, voting FOR slim of the three
anibodments would be more likely to in
sure the success of all—while omitting
one or two, or voting against them,
would complicate voting, and might en
danger the first. Therefore, vote for
the whole three amendments. See that
yotir ticket is right before voting.

A fIAYIs,OIIE BIBLE.--The colored

tured, as a present to the PreAdept of

bible ever manufactured in this country.
The cover is of blue velvet, tipped at
the corners with heavy gold mountings
and clasped with bars of solid gold.
The cover bears a large plate of gold,
representing a slave with his shackles
falling from him in a cotton field, stretch

At the.feetithe freedman there is a

Schoger and wife went into the field with
their oldest boy, to get a loud of hay,
leaving four children—Mary, aged 7
years; Charles, 10 years; John, 4 years,
and Catherine, 1 year old, at home.
The parents told the children to go into
the corn house and shell some corn for
the chickens. Returning from the field
the children could not be found. Search
was made, the neighbors rallying to the
assistance of the distressed family, and
the search of the premise, including
the corn house and the woods, was con
tinued through the night, but without
success. This morning (Thursday) the
corn house was again searched, and on
opening on old German chest standing
there the children were found smothered
to death, and their faces turned black
from suffocation. The children, at play,
had got into the chest, and had either
themselves shut down the lid, or the lid
fell down and a spring lock shut them in
that living tomb.
