TBE FIFTE??T? AM?N?MEST.
MESSAGE OF THE PrtBSIDBNf IN FULL.
Proclamation oft ht Secretary of State.
ALL POLITICAL DISTINCTIONS ON ACCOUNT
OF COLOR ABOLISHED.
Thc following is thc message sent by Presi?
dent Grant to Congress on Thursday, accompany?
ing the proclamation of the Secretary of State,
publishing the ratification of the Fifteenth amend?
ment to the constitution by twenty-nine States:
Message of thc President.
To u&Scnatc ant House of Representatives :
It is unusual to notify the two houses of Con?
gress, by message, of thc promulgation by pro?
clamation of thcSccretary or State of thc ratifi?
cation of a constitutional amendment. In view,
however, of thc vast Importance of the Fifteenth
amendment or the constitution, this day declared
a part of that revered instrument, I deem a de?
parture from thc usual custom justifiable. A
measure which makes at once four millions or
people voters, who were heretofore declared by
thc highest tribunal in thc laud not citizens or
thc United States, nor eligible to become so. (with
the assertion that "at thc time of thc Declaration
of Independence thc opinion was lixed and uni?
versal tn thc civilized portion of thc white race,
regarded as an axiom in morals as ivell as in poli?
tics, that black mea had no rights which white
men were bound to respect,") is indeed a meas?
ure of grander importance than any other < ne
act of thc kind, from thelfoundallon of our free
government to the orcscnttlmc.
Institutions like oure, tn which all power ls de
rived directly rrom the people, must depend
. mainly upon their Intelligence, patriotism and
indnstry. T call the attention, therefore, of the
newly enfranchised race to thc importance of
their striving, in every honorable mannor, to
make themselves worthy of their new privilege.
To the race more favored heretofore by our laws
I would say, withhold no lena! privilege of ad?
vancement to the new citizen. The framers id
our constitution firmly believed that a republi?
can form of government conld not endure with?
out intelligence and education generally diffused
among the people. The "Father of his Country,"
in his Farewell AdJrcSs, ases this language :
"Promote, then, as a matter or primary impor?
tance, institutions for the general diffaslon or
knowledge. In proportion as the structure of
government gives force to pnblic opinion, It is es
sentlal that public opinion should bc enlightened."
In his flrst annual message to Congress, tue
same views were rorclbly presented, and arc
?iznin urged in his eighth massage.
I repeat, that tho adoption of thc Pirieenth
amendment :o the constitution completes thc
crealsst civil change, and constitutes the most
imncWant event that has occurred since thc
nation aime into lire. The change will bc bene
fcinl Lr proportion to thc heed that 13 given to thc
urgent recommendations or Washington. If
these recommendations were Important then,
with a population of but a few millions, how
much more Important now, with a population of
forty millions, and increasing in a rapid ratio.
I would, therefore, call upon Congress io take
all the means within their constitutional powera
to promote ana encourage popular education
throughout the country, and upon the peoplo
everywhere to see to lt that all who possess and
exercise political rights shall have the opportuni?
ty to acquire the knowledge which will make
their share in the government a blessing, and not
a danger. By such means only can the benefits
contemplated by this amendment to the constitu?
tion be secured. U. S. GRANT.

A correspondent writing from Eutaw, Ala.,
on thc is tu ultimo, sajs :
The Initiatory movement of the anti-Radical
press or South Carolina Is bur, wc hope, the pre?
cursor of a general convention of those favoring
the "Citizens' Party." The crisis now Is pre?
eminently critical. It calls for the united ener?
gies or every man In the State-indeed, through?
out thc entire South, who regards the protection
or "lire, liberty and property" essential condi?
tions to the "general welfare or the people."
Apathy and supineness, on the part or the ultra
Democrats in the last campaign, and the alarm?
ing evidences or a policy almost as ratal as lt was
injudicious, BO abundant and significant, call
upon every man ti uc to the Interests or his State
and government to discountenance and contemn
inaction and listlessness as ruinous and suicidal.
Further persistence in a policy already prolltlc or
the direst results, must entail endless and ratal
consequences. A retributive, national and social
course can not but rollow in the wake or that na- j
tion and people who suffer the exercise er their
legislative, executive and judicial fonctions to
the venal arbitrament or an abject and Iguoraut

A PRETTY LENIENT DIVORCE LAW has been
Introduced In the Massachusetts Legislature, and
seems, thus fur, to encounter no opposUiou,
having passed thc House almost unanimously.
It makes separation for five years, even by mu?
tual agreement, a cause of divorce, ir Hie parties
were living In thc State all thc Umc; permits a
divorce for desertion after three years Instead of
live; leaves both parties to a divorce rrcc to
marry again; and authorizes the court to carry
Into effect any arrangements regarding property
that may have been agreed upon by divorced
couples. Hitherto In that State adultery nnd
utter desertion for five consecutive years have
been deemed necessary for a iLvorce, and thc
offending purtv has not been allowed to marry
again without the special permission of the Su?
preme Court. One effect of its passage will be
doubtless to restrain the rather extensive emi?
gration of badly yoked couples from thc Bay
St ite to Indiana to get thc benefit of thc lenient
divorce laws of tlKit Stale.

pS- CAUTION.-AUDACIOUS COUN?
TERFEIT!-The reputation which for many years
has attached to HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BIT?
TERS, as thc standard Tonic of the age. and the
large demand for thc article, not only lu thc Unit?
ed States but elsewhere, have provoked thc cupid?
ity of the counterfeiting tribe, and lt hos been ex?
tensively simulated and Imitated by unscrupu?
Tnc most daring counterfeit of said article
which has been attempted, has recently come to
our knowledge. Thc engraved steel label on bot?
tles containing the genuine bitters, with Its beau?
tiful vignette of St. George and tho Dragon, its
shield, containing n warning against counterfeit?
ers, and its note of hand for "one cent" at the
foot, signed by our finn name, has been copied so
closely that the fraud can only he detected on a
minute Inspection. Tin dark label ls also well
counterfeited, and thc wording on both thc Imita
tatton and genalr.e are precisely thc same, the dif?
ference being simply in thc execution of the work;
that or the Imitation being somewhat coarser
than thc jr cn nine. Other counterfeits arc on thc
market, which are in all particulars the same as
described above, willi the exception of a slight
difference In thc spelling of our name.
In addition to thc above, these counterfeiters
have gone so far in some instances ns to place a
strip of paper over the cork and fasten to the neck
or thc bottle, on which is a vignette, and other?
wise printed to resemble the general appearance
of our proprietary U. S. Revenue stamp, but upon
Inspection will disclose the absence of thc figure
"4," and thc words "four cents," also "United
States Internal Revenue," all ol which, together
with additional wording, appear on our genuine
stamp. Thc public arc, therefore, especially war. .
cd against these new counterfeits, and arc advis?
ed to purchase HOSTETTER'S STOMACH HIT?
TERS only of houses whose integrity ls above
suspicion. The true specific is sold in bottles ex?
clusively-never In bnlk.-IIOSTETTBR ? SMITH.
