Remark? In the House of Repr?sen?
t?t! ven of the lion. J. H. Beck, '
Democrat, Member from Kentucky.
We call the attention of our
readers to the extract wo publish
from Mr. Beck's speech, as given
in thc Globe. Tho State and tho
South has found in him an able
and generous champion, and in ;
behalf of om* people, wo return ;
him our thanks for his denuncia?
tion of tho Constitution that is
sought to bo imposed upon out?
state, and for his manly words in i
behalf of the outraged whites of
this State. He accepts the argu- ?
ments of thc remonstance paper,
and places our cause in bold relief
before tho eyes of the country. ?
Thus we sue that the good work
.done by the remonstrance move?
ment, is daily showing its fruits.
Let this spirit bo kept up, and
whilst there is a chance of saving
the State from tho infliction with
which she is menaced, let tho op?
portunity be improved, and let
argument after argument be made
until the truth is vindicated, and
the public safety preserved. Let
the argument now be put before
the Senate. And when that fails,
then may wo proparo to pass for
awhile in the tunnel; soon, how?
ever, again to emerge into the
light of constitutional liberty, se?
cured alike to all classes of the
people, and justly distributed ac?
cording to thc demands of society
and the claims of humanity. Read
Mr. Beck's remarks.
Action of the Route of Representa.
(Ive* on the Restoration of the
Southern Stuten. ,
The features that deserve spe?
cial notice, in connection with the
omnibus bill, are:
1st. Stevern* amendment, whick
is to tbe effect that any citizen of
Georgia, who shall swear that he
was a good Unionist during the
late war, shall be enabled, it may
be, to press to tho wall his seces?
sion creditor. It is au invitation
to fraud and puts a premium upon
2d. Jlroohf amendment, propos?
ing that thc disfranchisement at?
tached to the whites bo removed.
This was voted down-showing
tho floreo spirit of vengeance
that still exists in tho radical mind
against tho so-called rebels of the
South. Another point to bo no?
ticed, is that in attaching an
amendment to the Georgia Con?
stitution, the House of Representa
lives actually ttndeila?'ea to make
Gonai U>d ions for Hie Southern Stales.
This is a bold step to power. A
distinguished member of the
House writes to us tts follows,
relative to tho passage of the
omnibus bill of restoration : "They
put you all into an omnibus bill
and crowded you through." Then
alluding to the remonstance paper
and Col. Thomas' romarka before
the Reconstruction Committee, he
adda: "Wo -will at ' least make a
record upon thom. Stevens carried
ont his amendment to the Georgia
Constitution. "We make Consti?
tutions for States. We are supreme.
Unless the people reverse action this
faU, ree are all gone."

South Carolina's Case-Retract from
Speech of Hon. James B. Beek, of
Kentucky-Hie South Carolina Re?
Take the case of South Carolina,
for example, and I can only state a
few prominent points. Of the men
composing that Constitutional CoU
VOnM0T 70 TOTO rtocrrrtt^i and about
50 white men. Of "the men com?
posing the present Legislature of that
State, seventy-one are colored, and
fifty-four white. One item of taxa?
tion alone in that State-tho taxation
for the support of free schools
amouuts to 61,000,000. It is pro?
vided that the white race shall never
have auy public school exclusively
for themselves; that the white and
the black children, malo and fe m ule,
shall bo playmates and school-mates
together; that if tho white citizens
do not send their boys and their girls
to the sohools attended by tho ne?
groes, they shall suffer such penalties
ns a negro Legislature may seo fit to
impose. Who aro tho men thus im?
posing these conditions upou the
people of that State? As I have al?
ready said, they have no interest in
the affairs of the State, no interest in
its property, no interest in its taxa?
tion, and composo no part of its in?
telligence, wealth, or respectability.
While they aro spending millions of
tho property of other people, they
io not themselves bear ono dollar of
the burden. I hold in my hand and
proposo to read an abstract, to which,
L trust, members will give their at?
tention, and then let them say whether
these are men fit to make Consti?
tutions for or impose laws upon a
Tho following statement exhibits
un analysis of the taxes 'paid by tho
members of, the Convention and of
tho Legislature recently elected in
South Carolina, according to tho tax
returns in the Comptroller's office:
The total amount paid by members
of the Legislature, $700.03; of this
amount, six members pay 3301.02;
leaving a balanco paid by all other
members, 309.01. Executious were
issued for $140.70 of this balauce;
whether or not paid, is uot ascer?
tained. Tho total amount paid by
the members of the Constitutional
Convention, $879.51; : f this amount,
ouo member (a couseL'vative Demo?
crat) pays $508.85; and three mem?
bers pay $210.50-$719.35; balance
paid by all other members, $100.19.
Executions for $77.75 of this balance,
whether or not paid, not ascertained.
I have the full lists of tho member:
of both theso bodies, giviug theil
names, the Districts they represent,
their color, and the taxes assessed tc
each, which I iutended to publisl
with my remarks, but they woulc
occupy too much space. I will re
tain them at my desk, where thej
eau bo examined by any member win
desires to do so. Fifty-six of tin
negro delegates to tho Convention ar<
not even on the assessor's books
With three or four exceptions, tin
others only pay poll tax, and in afev
instances tax on a dog-very likely i
6heep killer-and tho white delegate
are in the same condition. Twenty
three of their number were unknowi
even to the assessor. Poll tax is no
charged against them, and most o
the others pay a mere nominal tax
and the same may bo said in regar
to Hie State Senators and members c
the Legislature, as tho detailed lit
in my possession shows. Theso list
are at tho service of members, so thc
tho accuracy of the statements I muk
may be tested.
What is hero shown iu reference t
South Carolina is buta .sample of al

Over Seventy of thom aro in the Stu
Legislature, and doubtless, tho otb
State olfices are heM by them in li
proportion. Intelligence and virtue
are crushed oui bj ignorance and
vi oe. The proud race to which wo
all belong, and of whose ci v iii 7A tion
wo are proud, is trampled in the dust
by the debased African. Taxation
without representation for the white
man, and representation without tax?
ation for the negro, is the rule now in
"Hliado of the mighty, can it be
That this is all romainr of thee?"
Under that Constitution, tho negro
magiatrate may, for any offences a
negro Legislaturo may create, fine
white men any Bum not exceeding
$100, and imprison him uot exceed?
ing thirty days, and repentit as often
as he pleases. Speaking disrespect?
fully of tho race, color, or integrity
of the magistrate, refusing to send
his children to school with negroes,
refusing to Bleep in the sanio bod with
him-anything may be made the pre?
text for arbitrary lino and imprison?
ment. A moro convenient niodo of
depopulating the State of South Ca?
rolina of her white race, could not
well be devised.
The Legislaturo has power to main?
tain a standing army iu time of pence.
This and tho militia provision will
enable a sufficient number of profli?
gate negroes to bo maintained as sol?
diers at the expense of tho white tax?
payers, to keep tho white raco ir
perfect subjection, aud to eut out
Tho whole spirit of the proposed
Constitution is shown in section eighl
of article eight, which rends thus:
"SEC. 8. The Geheval Assembly
ahull never puss any law that will do
privo any of tho citizens of this Stati
of tho right of suffrage, except foi
treason, murder, robbery, or dueling
whereof tho person ?hall have beei
duly tried and convicted."
These aro crimes of which white
men may bo guilty, henou disfran
chisemeut may be part of tho penalty
Perjury, burglary, clandestine theft
arson, rape, the specialities of th?
negro race, shall never deprivo tin
perpetrator of the right of suffrage
no matter how fiagruut or oft repent
ed. Tho gentleman who prefers t<
settle his difficulties in private siugfi
combat, rather than bring them ii
noisy brawl before a crowd, is foreve
disfranchised, while the convicto
perjurer, the thief, and the negro
who destroys tho homo or the chili
of tho white man, mny, and porhnp
would, in honor of the crime, b
elected Governor of the State, o
sent to these halls, as soon as b
leaves tho penitentiary.
Ou behalf of tho Democratic Stat
Central Committee of South Carol
un, I laid before this House a. remon
strunee against this Constitution
which was referred to tholteconstruc
tion Committee, and by permissio
of our Chairman, (Mr. Stevens,) Co
Thomas, of South Carolina, udvi
catcd tho views and principles therei
set forth, with a modesty and abilit
that seemed to impress even our dil
tinguished Chairman. I have tin
paper here. I wish I had timo t
read it to tho House. I havo not.
can only make a few extracts from i
aud urge tho members on both side:
if they want to understand tho tri
stato of feeling io South Carolin
and the evils this Constitution woul
bring upon that people, to read an
ponder well on the fcicts therein coi
tained. After stating many othc
gravo questions, tho Committee adi
"We have thus suggested to yoi
honorable body some of tho pron]

this Constitution. Wo waive i

which we approach your honorab
body iu the spirit of earnest remo
stranco. That Constitution was tl

Not one per cont, of tho white pop

negro over tho age of twenty-or
and disfranchises many of tho pun

Restoration ot the Southern State?.
The following dehnte took place in
the House of Representatives on the
above subject. Mr. Stevens' amend?
ment referred to, was this-it was
And be it further enacted, That the
provisions of section seventeen, arti?
cle five, of tho Constitution of Geor?
gin, shall not npply to n debt due to
nny persou who, duriug tho whole
time of tho rebellion, wns loj-nl to

Mr. Brooks, (Democrat,) of New
York, gave notice thnt he would move
the following amendment as an addi?
He it further enacted, That on and
after the passage of this Act, all citi?
zens of the United States, in tho
States heretofore named, shall bo ad?
mitted to equal rights' suffrage.
As to the debate:
Mr. Beck addressed the Hotiso for
au hour, in opposition to the bill. He
declared that tho nmendmeut pro?
posed by Mr. Stevens was just ns
legitimate as the notion of the people
of the States on the Constitution pro?
posed for them, was. If the member.?
of the Republican party did not
como up to tho amendaient just offer?
ed by Mr. Stevens, it would bo the
first time that any proposition pro?
posed by the distinguished gentleman
from Pennsylvania was not adopted
by all tho members of this party, in?
cluding tho distinguished menibei
from Ohio, (Mr. Bingham,) whe
would yety have to yield to the dictate.'
of this great leader.
Mr. Bingham, (Republican,) ol
Ohio, remarked that that statement
was contradicted by tho record in iu
numerable instauees, and tho gentle
man ought not to muke it.
Mr. Beck repeated the assertion,
that tho position taken by Mr. Ste
vens had been followed by his partj
iu almost every instance, whethei
they had been liked at first or not
Tho amendment now offered by tin
gentleman from Pennsylvania wouh
he another illustration of tho rule
He referred to the resolution of th
Ohio Legislature, presented lust Mou
day by Mr. Van Trump, in oppositioi
to the reconstruction measures o
Cougress. He also referred to th
objectionable features of the Cousti
huions nuder which the Souther
States wero to bo admitted, particu
lurly that provision of the South Cn
roliua Constitution which rankes i
compulsory on nil children, white e
black, to bo sent to the same school;
Mr. Higby, (Republican,) of Cal
fornia, asked Mr. Beck whathewoul
do with the negroes.
Mr. Beek replied, that ho wonl
protect them as freedmen, as h
would protect any person who ha
not tho capacity to exercise politict
rights and privileges, for a great man
reasons. Ho held tho negro was Ul
tit to hold political rights, nud it wt
outrage against the civilization <
i. o to place tho negro of tl
S- u in position to control tho whit
ra. . It was an outrage which h
believed the people of tho countr
would ere long wash out. He d(
dared that the colored people of Kei
tucky were now better protected nu
better cared for than they were i
any States that ure under tho Reco)
struction Act. The object of tl
pending bill was to counteract tl
voters of the Northern States in tl
approaching Presidential election.
Mr. Farnsworth, (Republican,)
Illinois, asked Mr. Beck, whether,
the black man would vote the Dem
eratic ticket, his objection to the
participating in the govern me
would not be somewhat modified?
Mr. Beck. Not iu the slightest.
Tho bill ns finally passed, yeas-10

A RASCALLY ADVENTURER.-Mnuy
of our ladies will remember being
called upon at their residences, last
fall, by a "lady" agent going around
aud selling ladies' "corsets" and fit?

Recently, iu an interior town iu this
Stat , the very same woman, by the
cheapness of her stock aud a decided
and unwarranted partiality shown a
bcautifid lady customer, aroused sus?
picion, and ou the "lady" being ar?
rested, she was found to be a young
man in disguise-fitting and selling
just for the fun of the thing. He
says he paused through Easton,
Allentown, Heading, Pottsvillo and
many other towns, fitting corsets to
several thousand young ladies.

The Secretary of the Senate resigns
his lucrative place. It is intimated
that ho does this for the. sake of inde?
