Tho bill to regulate the hours of labor, known
as the "eight-hour bill," was rejected by the
House of Representatives of Massachusetts, on
tho 20th, by a vote of 100 to 52. The Boston Ad
vertiser Baya of tho bill : "It is as any proposition
iu political economy can be, that to mako eight
hours tho legal limit for a day's work would either
be inoperative, liko the legal rato of interest, or
that if it formed tho basis of contracts between
tbo laboro.v and tho employer, it would occasion a
ohange in tho nominal rato of wagon suffloient to
make the dollar in payment represent the samo
amount of labor as now."
In the last seven years the annual avorsgo value
of tho plates m anufaotured iu the United Kingdom,
and shipped for exportation, amounted to more
than ono and a quarter million pounds sterling.
In 1864 the total declared value was ?1,263,246,
represented by 1,002,947 owts. Considerable moro
than a moiety of the total was sent to tho United
States; noxt in order of importance were Franco

THURSDAY MORNING. MAY 8, 1866.
THE ADMISSION OF COLORADO.
The Senate, by a vote of nineteen to thir
teen, passed the Bill for the admission of
Colorado Territory as a State of the Union.
It haH an unsettled population of twenty or
twenty-five thousand, not as large, by half, as
the littlo oity of Richmond. The Bill -was
opposed by conservatives mainly on tbe
ground that Buoh a population is hardly suf
ficient to justify the admission of a Territory
as a State, when the popular ratio for a rep
resentative in CongresB is a hundred thou
sand. Mr. Sum nek and some other Radicals
opposed the Bill beuauso negroes, in the
State Constitution of Colorado, are exoluded
from the right of suffrage. Other Radicals
supported it beoause it would give two addi
tional members to the Radioal strength in tho
Senate. Should this Bill pass the House, we
shall have Colorado, with twenty-five thou
sand population, and a Constitution excluding
negro suffrage, admitted as a State, whilst
eleven Southern States are forbidden a voioe
in Congress beoause they have not conceded
negro suffrage ! The New York Herald re
marks that what adds to the inconsistency
and injustice of the distinction is the fnotthut
the oolton furnished from tbe exoluded South
ern States since the clono of the war, for tho
markets of the world, foots up a Bum equal
to three hundred millions in gold, for tbe re
lief of the national oredit, the national our
renoy, and the Federal tux payers of tbo
United States, from one end of the Union to
the other; whilst in all probability as large
an amouut may be secured this year by ad
mitting the South to Congress, whi oh would
re-establish there the confidence, activity and
systematic industry necessary to the full de
velopment even of the crops tbat havo been
? ? -
A writer to the New York Independent re
fers to a statement in that puper to tbe effeot
"that, iu the ratification of tho Federal
0* institution in 1788, bluok men voted in every
Stute in tho Union save South Carolina,'' and
nt-kit it to publish tbe facts and documentary
evidence, in order to silonoe the "Copper
beads'-' who deny it. The Independent very
judioiously denies the task, alleging that it
on unot, spare tbe epaoe, and adds:
'Wo can only repeat what we before stated,
that black men voted, or might havo voted, for
there wero no constitutional enactmonts to pro
hibit them, for the ratification of tbe Federal
Constitution In 1788 in every ?State, eicopt South
Carolina. In Maryland and Virginia tho right of
uiir.igo was not restricted by the Constitution,
hut was regulated by statutes. In all the other
Hinten the right of suffrago waa enjoyed by all
fr? o citizen? without reapeot to color. The con
stitutional disqualification of color in reapeot to
snffraRO) is a rccont innovation, borrowed from
Tho Riohmond Whig replhiB in ita usual
nblo manner, and asks:
''Was moro dishonesty and falsehood over com
pressed into so small a compass? Yot such tire
tho means employed by tho Iladical leaders to
holster up their cause. It is somewhat surprising
that The IndependtrU should decline to publish
tho documentary evidence asked for. It is not
often that documents aro wanting when that par
ty wishes to establish uuy fact. They havo ma
chinery for tho manufacturo of evidence, as they
have for tho manufacturo of paper collars. The
ovidonce manufactory is at Washington, and it
givos employment to more 'operativos" than tho
New England manufactories. It is tho "Recon
struction Committee." If 27ie Independent will
just call upon tho Chairman for the evidence ho
wants, it will bo promptly furnished, and in any
quantity desired. In less than ono week a wagon
load of affidavits will be furnished that will de
monstrate incontostibly that until Mr. Johnson
becamo President negroes have votod in every
State of the Union. It can bo proved that Wash
ington, Jefferson, Madison, Monhoe, and all
'the fathers,' were native Africans. It can be
further established, if necessary, that the South
ern whites have always been excluded from suf
frage, and that until Andhkw Johnson becamo
President, it never entered tho head of any man
to claim that francbiso for them. Documents !
Evidence I They grow in Washington as fruits
grow in tho tropics. They aro kept boxed up bko
oranges, ready to bo sont to order, and transpor
tation is free."
The Riohmond Times coniplimonta Butler
again in this wise:
"There is a strong probability of "Bumincr
Butler" boiug whitewashed into a state of mode
rato respectability. During tho past fortnight
his prospects bavo brightened very materially. In
the tirst placo two valiant bunk officiais rushed
into print to vindicate Butler from all suspicion
of having pocketed tho funde of a saviugs bank.
In the second placo, tho counsel for a Now Orleans'
broker, named Smith, from whom Butler took
fifty thousand dollars in gold, gavo him a certifi
cate last week that tbe seizure was proporly made,
and tho certificate so delighted B. F. that he
straightway paid over tho fifty thousand dollars
to Smith's attorney. Tho cerliiicato was well
worth tho money, and so emboldened Butler that
ho at onco swore that tho great rebellion had
"After the skillful whitewashing of Cataline by
Louis Napoleon in his life of Cesar, tho claborato
dofenco of Nero and Calliuula by Thomas De
Quinoey, and tho complete vindicatiou of Judas
Iscariot by a German philosopher, we think there
is a strong probability of somebody's making,
ono of these days, a "whiled sepulchre" at least
of Butler's reputation."

NEGROES IN JAMAICA.
The Royal Commission in Jamaion, which
has been examining into tho history of tbo
late revolt in that Island, has taken a great
deal of testimony, much of which, while it
leaves exceedingly uncertain as yet the ques
tion how far the plot of tho rebellion extend
ed among the negroes, reveals in strong light
the fact that the Jamaica freedmen are
wholly unfit for self-government No one
can read the evidenoe without peroeiving the
conclusivo natnre of its bearing on this point.
It was a point, indeed, which did not conoern
the Commission, and to which they gave no
attention, and the evidence on this subjeot
was for that reason not direct, but it is on that
account all the more, forcible and convinc
One of the remarkable features of the tes
timony relates to the oredulity of tbe negroes.
They seem to believe any story, however im
probable and foolish. Henoe constant exoito
ment oan be kept np among them by do
signing men. Rumors that the Queen had
sent them shiploads of presenta, had ordered
the lands to be divided among them, had done
this and that impossible thing, not only spread
as rumors, but were instantly adopted and
believed by the whole colored population.
Various witnesses testified that a common be
lief prevailed among thorn that "liberty of
person carried with it liberty of land, nud
that the Queen bad given them the lauds
when she gave them freedom." Tho custom*
of pilfering among them ia described by wit
nesses as almoet universal. They stoal every
thing they can lay hands on in the way of
provisions and the produce of the soil?steal
ing from one another as much as from tbe
whites. Farming is desoribed as almost im
practicable in Borne districts on account of this
Among the witnesses examined was Rov.
S R. Ward, who is described as a colored
man, formerly a slave in America, who had
escaped and been in England, lie said "the
people were oredulous and truthless, and if
you told them they were starving they would
bo very muoh inclined to believo you, evon if
they were well to do." Ho said that "so far
as bo could per?oive, tho laborers had not
muoh to complain of respeoting the adminis
tration of justioe. Tbe fact was that the
black people grumbled evon moro than En
glishmen did; they were always grumbling;
and their grumbling was oooasioned by tem
p?rament more than by any substantial rea
son. If it rained, they grumbled; if it didn't
rain, they grumbled; and so on. Then there
was a looso feeling among thorn with regard'
to the land. They did not like to pay rent?
and if they hired an sore of land they did
not waot you to measure it off, but wanted to
till a good deal more." Too same witness
said "there was a low tone of morality in re
speot of marriage; one-half the ohildren
registered in the island during the last eleven
years were illegitimate." The superstitious
character of the blacks is remarkably illus
trated in Jamaica. Obeah is still believed
in. These are but a few of the characteris
tics of the race In Jamaica, after the experi
ment of freedom under English oivilising
influences. It is, of course, plain enough
that thore oro bad white men as well as
black, and that these same vices prevail
among the whites. But the remarkable
character of this testimony is its swoeping
nature. The witnesses spenk of a whole race
as developing these marked characteristics.
The oxooptiona only strengthen the rule.
