Thr Mew Plan.
We subjoin tke joint resolutions
proposed by tbe Centra] Di recio ry of
tin? radicals in Congress as an amend?
ment, to tile Constitution of Clio
This new scheme, it is sahl, will iv
eeive the sanction of the President,
(a statement, however, we can sea ice?
ly believe.) That it will pass both
bouges of Congress in nearly its pre?
sent shape is highly probable, and,
therefore, as it will in that event be
submitted to the people of tho South?
ern States, we publish its provisions:
Resolved, by (he Sew ile. and House of
Representatives of the United Stales of
America in Congress assembled, (tteo
thirdsvf ' both Houses coneurri?g'% J That
the following article be proponed by
the Legislatures of the several States
as ah amendment to the Ct institution
of the United States, which, win n
ratified by three-fourths of said Le?
gislatures, shall bc valid as part of
the Constitution, namely:
SEC. 1. All persons boru in thc
United States and subject to the ju?
risdiction thereof, aro citizens of the
United Htatos and of thc Stritt??
wherein they reside. No State shu ll
make or enforce any law which shall
abridge the privileges or inimunrtie*
of citizens or tho United States; noi
shall any State deprive any person ol
life, liberty or property, without .lue
process of law; nor deny to any per?
son within ila jurisdiction the equal
protection of tho laws.
SEC. 2. Representatives shall bc
apportioned among the several States
which may be included within th?
Union, according to their respective
utimbers, counting the whole niimbei
of persons in each State, excluding
Indians not taxed. But whenever ii
any State the elective franchise si tal
be denied to any portion of its mah
inhabitants, being citizens of tin
United States, not less than twenty
one years of age, or in any TO
abridged, except for participation ii
rebellion or other crime, the basis o
representation in such State shall lu
reduced in the proportion which tin
number of such male citizens shal
beal* to the whole number of mal
citizens not less than twenty-?m
years of age in such State.
S SEO. 3. No person shall be a S?
natur or Representative in Congress
or elector of President and Vice-Pi t
aident, or hold any office, civil o
military, under tim Unite?! Slates, o
under any State, who, having previ
ously taken au oath as a member <
Congress, or as an officer of iii
United States, or as a member <
any State Legislature, or as an exe<
utive or judicial officer of any Stat?
to support the Constitution of tb
United States, shall have engage?l i
insurrection or rebellion against til
same, or given aid and comfort to th
enemies thereof. But Congressman
by a vote of two-thirds of each Hons?
remove such disability.
SEC. 4. The obligations of tl.
United States incurred in suppressiu
insurrection, or in defenc?i of tl)
Union, or for payment of bounties c
pensions incident thereto, shall r<
SEC. 5. Neither the United Stat?
nor any State shall assume or pm
any debt or obligation incurred i
aidof insurrection oPrebellion again

compensation for the hiss or email?:
pation of any slave; but all sin
debts, obligations and claims shall 1

The first section, it will bo pe
ceived, unlike the civil rights 1?
passed some time ago over the Pr
sident's veto, would make the san
bill constitutional. In the second sc
tiou, the radicals have abandon?
their former proposition-that Co
gress has the power to regulate t
question of auftrage in the Stat?
but they take care that if the negro
do not vote, they shall not be repr
sen ted, thus reducing the represent
tiun of every Southern State whi
denies them the right.

Tho pupers representing the radi?
cal interest at Hie North, arc loudly
denouncing- the bombardment of Val?
paraiso by tho Spanish lleet. Why
these hypocritical caiitings now
against a loreign power by the North?
ern and the English press, when they
were mute during the lute war, when
many Southern cities were bombariT
I ed, and some of them without notice,
where there was no resistance, and
whose inhabitants were non oomb.it
autsaml women and children.
Charleston was bombarded for
mouths, and not with thc hope of re?
ducing lier by these means. Colum?
bia, on the morning-of thc 10th Feb?
ruary, I $05, was aroused by the
whimne; of shells, and that, too,
without any no'?ce ot such nu attack.
IL was a most pib'ous sight to sec old
men, women and children running
away from t heil humes and betaking
themselves to the woods, to escapo tho
cruel missiles. Petersburg and other I
cities shared the same treatment, yet
to our recollection there was not a
word of denunciation from the press
of the North <>r (beat Britain against
these unnecessary assault:; on thoso j
populous cities. Such is the consis?

As a lift ing; accompaniment to an
article we penned for yesterday's pa
per, we reproduce from the Richmond
Times, ol" the 30th ult., the following
brief but excellent piece ol' advice to !
Sont hern proprietors :
Let no Southern proprietor be ?ti j
haste to sell his land. ( >nr lands and j
our honor constitute about tho only j
property of value left us by tho war,
and there are not wanting men who ?
would have ns purl with both upon
terms too dear to be acceptable.
High taxes, hard times, disgust with
freedmen and with tho revolution in
th?: agriculture of the South, will ?
probably ?hiv?! many of our peopl?'
to hasty and inc.msiderate sacrifices
of their leal estate. Such a course,
would be eminently unwise and im?
prudent. This, of all times, is the
worst period t-> sell, because land is;
amazingly cheap everywhere, but is j
not destined to continue so. The !
very fact of the cheapness ol' our j
lands will soon inaugurale a desire to 1
obtain them, which, stimulating com
petition from increased demand, will
enhance their value. Moreover, the
prospect of s European war will
vastly increase the flood of immigra?
tion to this country; for thos<;
foreigners know what war is, and
tens of thousands will seek to escape
it. Most of thes?' immigrants will
bring with Hiern som?: money, which
they never fail to invest in a little
farm, cultivated on the European
There is an idea prevalent, that
there is still an enormous area of
arable land unappropriated in the
great, West. This is a mistake.
West of Kansas ami Nebraska 300
miles West ?>f the Missouri River
there is bul little goo?! land. That
vast country between the last men
Honed States and the Rocky Moun?
tains constitutes the central table
land of North America, ami i. so
high as io be cold ami frosty, ami in
summer is parched by pitiless and
protracted droughts. In addition ?<<
these ?li scon nihill g; facts, there is a
luck of timber, which will be repul?
sive to settlers.
All these considerations indicate
that immigration will hereafter swoop
l?> points where cheap, arable lands
can be obtained in such aban.lane
as to meet, the demands of all cornel's
Nowhere in th.- ITnibnl States, ex?
cept in the South, are these comli
tions now fnllilled.
The eagerness with which oar lands
ami railroads are sought by greedy
speculators demonstrates their pros
pective value in the eyes ?d' these
keen-scented fellows, who see clearly
where money can be made. Our
lands ari- bonnd to increase in value,
and our people err greatly in their
desire to sacrifice them. Let them
hold on awhile.

an3 the cusin;;; off, by our worthy
I President, of a strictly military rule
over thc Southern States, they might
innocently indulge in a manifestation
of love ?md respect for those who fell
in the late struggle for Southern in?
dependence, by renovating their too?
long neglected graves. Tin; radicals
seize hohl of this loving and beauti?
ful demonstration, and endeavor to
prove therefrom that treason bas not
boon '-'made odious," and that it is
far from dead. From a sentence in
thc resolution subjoined, it is to be
presumed that it was intended to ap?
ply to the occasion (the 2fith April)

decorating the graves of deceased

"MK. SEWARD, OCR ONCE LOYAL
AND PATRIOTIC SECRETARY OF STATE."
These aro the head-lines published iu
large type over Secretary Seward's
Auburn speech by tho Philadelphia
Press. They proclaim that in the
opinion of John W. Forney's paper,
Secretary Seward is no longer loynl
or patriotic. The speech which has
elicited this scandalous insinuation
was a temperate and chaste appeal in
behalf of a speedy restoration of
peace and Union. It contaiued the
following catholic sentiment:
"I am hopeful of the President,
hopeful of tho Congress, hopeful of
the National Union party, hopeful of
the Democratic party, hopeful of tho
represen ted and unrepresented States;
above all, hopeful of tho whole peo
J)le, and hopeful of the continued
avor of Almighty Cod."
The man who uttered that grand
sentiment has devoted his life to the
welfare of the American people, and
during the war of tho rebellion
shielded us by wise utatesuanship
from foreign intervention. Tho scars
inflicted by a rebel assassin havo
hardly yet healed upon his face, and
because he exercises the right of a
citizen and a high public officer to
advocate reconciliation and Union,
ho is denounced as disloyal and un?
patriotic, lt is as abominaiilo an ex?
hibition of bigoted partisanship as
we have ever witnessed, and deserves
the heartiest censure of tho press and
people. -Pittsburg Chronicle, (Rep.)

Thus has another been caUed to that
"bourne from whence no traveler can r?
turn." Death is a solemn thing; but with
the aged Christian it is a sweet sleep.
"Asleep in Jesus! blessed sleep
From which none ever wake to weep."
The subject of this brief notice was a
member of the church, having occupied
that position for over forty years. He led
an exemplary life, and died in a full assur?
ance of a home beyond the grave. H?
leaves many relatives and friends to mourn
his d' atti; but their loss is his eternal
gain. Mourn not, bereaved onus; he ia
nappy now. He cannot, retara t.. you, but
you can go to him. Happy thought! Yon
?.an meei him where death eau tu-v.T si-pa
rate von again.
Dearest father, thou has! left us
Here thy loss w? deeply feel.
Rut 'tis God Ilia! lu: I li bereft us

Ye! axain w?- Lope to nie? t th. e.
When the day of life is tied;
Then, in Heaven, with joy to grce' thee,
Where n?. farewell lear is shed.
