The Adoption of ?Ja? ?riftccntU Ain^n?.
ment*-Ita Twu-ioW Significance.
President Graut Uns officially t an?
nounced the ratification of':tho fifteenth
amendaient. Tho provisions of HUB
amendment bave'been for some time in
operation in the ^eoonstruot?d'^ States.
The effeot of tho iecent announoement
makes negro suffrage apply also to the
so-called "loyal1* /Btates. It 'gives saf
frogo to about 80,000 new voters in the
twenty-one Northern, middle, Eastern
and Western States, and it confirms suf?
frage to about 800,000 negro Voters in
the whole'Uuited States. Thus the vot?
ing population of the whola country
stands, in round numbera, over 6,000,
000 white voter*,and about 800,000 co

ra ?^^^Dr^^i?OB conditio O o fe or v i -
p,Qwe*:tft^lpJfe^^s-article by. appro?
priate legislation; .
Whothqr QopBUtqmuted legally or ille?
gally, constitutionally, or not, thia is the
law of the laud- it might does not make
righi, it r.ortainly doc's ono thing very
surely-it gitetf i US accomplished facts.
This universal suffrage is ?n Wc?mplbhed
faut-ns the French express it,'un fait
accompli. We have suggested that thiB"
matter of tho adoption' of-'tho fifteenth
amendment has a two-fold significance
First, it establishes 'the broad and une?
quivocal proposition-that suffrage is uni?
versal in this country.' "With thi? we are
disposed to bo content. We are inolined
to think that the suffrage of the colored
mau is the logical sequenoe of his free?
dom. Furthermore, we are disposed to
look upon'the extension of the privilege
of univ ors al BU fir ago as the. wisest solu?
tion of a vexed question the world over.
If the people demand universal suffrage,
well, let them 'have it. 1 They are sove?
reign. -Let them have it, and lot us go
about our business. If tho principle
shall not work well, the remedy, wo sup?
pose, will como from those who expe?
rience the ill efieots of its operation.
This is one / aspect of tho quoetion.
Bat there is- another. It is this. The
radical party, in its role of "reconstruc?
tion"-io its making and unmuking of
States-has utterly ignored the dootrine
of State sovereignty and State rights.
In tho fifteenth amendment, and also in
the thirteenth and fourteenth amend?
ments, the radical or Republican party
has gone Upon the principio of regard?
ing Congress as the sovereign power
"AH representing the national authority
of the' -United states." This is olear.
Congress has virtually said and acted out
'.I AM TUB STATE." Louis XIV did not
more ' thoroughly represent tho sove?
reignty of France than does Congress
claim the sovereignty of power in these
Uoited States. Tho present ruling party
have, since the war, in spirit and in sub?
stance, changed the character of this
Government. At first tho sword struck
down the Southern States. Now it is
turned upon the Northern and Western
States. If the Democracy of those
States fail to rally the Northern' people
against the legislation of Congress, then
we shall give the matter up. State rights
will be laid low, with or without a r?sur?
rection. The BEPUBIIIO of Washington
and Adams will have become the NATION
of Lincoln and Grant. It remains for
the Northern people to yield to or to ar?
rest this RESULT-so full of significance.
Let them sustain the present national
regime-let them fail to revive, in its
power, the national Democracy-the last
hope of a Government of free and co?
equal States-and all will bo over. We
do not say forever, but all will be over
for the present. STATES will havo be
ootne PROVINCES, and tho power of the
Government will have passed into the
hands of the Executive or the Congres?
sional department. Let the matter be
decided, and lot us understand where we

Whtltcmore on the Stump--Stnalor
Whittemore, na has already bceu brief?
ly stated, addressed his Republican con?
stituents at Georgetown, on the 23d ult.
His attempted justification, of the cor?
ruption of which ho had been convicted
was of the same character ns that he has
uttored elsewhere. At the conclusion of
his remarks he Was answered hy Kai ney,
the colored Senator, who, in the course
of his speech, said:
He would answer to the call made from
no ill will to Mr. Whittemoro, bnt from
?sense of duty-that when he was in
Washington he was indebted to him. for
many courtesies, which rendered the task
he was about to enter upon, of exposing
the falsities of his statements and the
sophistries of his address, au unpleasant
and painful one. Yet that duty he would
discharge without fear, favor or affec?
tion. That Mr. Whittemore had been
guilty of conduct in his, representative
capacity in Congress that made him un?
worthy of a seat in that body, could not
successfully be controverted or denied
by any one who knew anything of the
charges made against him. He said that
Whittemore denied that he was expelled
from his seat. That he was not actually
expelled w..s the truth, but that he was
virtually expelled was equally true. A
vote had been taken in the House, by
which it was absolutely certain that the
two-thirds necessary for expulsion would
bo obnined-he, as Daddy Cain once
said, saw the sirocco coming and dodged
its blast and force by resigning. Let those
present bear in mind, that this cry raised
by him of persecution, ?fcc., has no foun?
dation. Raiuey went on at some length
to'show the emptiness of Mr. Whitte
more's pretensions to credit for the many
benefactions he claimed to have, con?
ferred on the colored nico, and cautioned
them to beware how they trusted one
who had disgraced the high position to
which he had been elevated by their con?
fidence and votes.
AB soon as Rniney had finished, he, in
turn, was attacked in lively style by one
of his brother colored radicals, Repre?
Thc -first charge, he said, he had
against the Senator, was that, with all his
pretensions of love to the negro race, he
had, on a. very important occasion, ig?
nored them by attempting to poss off as
a Spaniard. The most of tho "meeting
would recollect that last winter, the Sena?
tor and himself were appointed delegates
to a labor convention ip Columbia-that
the convention iu Columbia appointed
delegates to attend a national labor con?
vention in Washington, and that J. H.
Rainey, the Senator who had just ad?
dressed them, were with others one of
the delegates. He charged that when
Senator ltainey got to Washington, he
found that the boasted equality which is
represented to exist at the national capi?
tal did not extend to everything-that
there were certain Bights ho wished to
see, that wero not accorded to those who
had African blood in their veins, and he
forthwith assumed with Wimbnsh, the
Sonator from Chester, to pass off as Spa?
niards, one calling himself as Don Rod?
rigo and the other as Don Alfonso. Jones
then asked the Senator to inform this
audieuco whether, when he was in Wash?
ington, as a delegate to tho labor conven?
tion, ho passed off as Don Rodrigo, ?nd
Wimbnsh ns Don Alfonso, or whether he
played tho part of Don Alfonso and
Wimbush figured as Don Rodrigo? I
think the question important.
This question brought down the house,
and was too much for tho Senator, who
quit the stand, with animated disgust pic?
tured on his countenance.

York politician, died last week.

STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA.
COLTJMIIIA, April 6, 1870.
THE President of the United States having
officially proclaimed thc ratification of tho
Fifteenth Constitutional Amendment, declar?
ing that "tho right* of citizens of the United
States to vote shall not bo denied or abridged
hy tho United States, or by any State, on ac?
count of race, color, or previous condition of j
servitude," it affords mo the highest gratifica- |
tion to announco tho samo tn my fellow
aitizens of South Carolina. After nearly a
century of delay and procrastination, tho
froat truth 'enunciated in thc Declaration of |
ndopondoucc, "that all mun aro created
cqnal," ia at length vindicated, and with a
most gratifying unanimity of public scntimont
four millions of our people, who wtro hereto?
fore declared by tho hiphi at tribunal in tho
country unworthy of citizenship, arc now in?
vested in its glorious panoply, with all its
rights and all its responsibilities. With a
view to tho intelligent discharge of these, I
would earnestly unite with tho President in
enjoining upon' you tho counsel of Washing?
ton, to promote, as a matter of primary im?
portance, institutions for tho general diffusion
of knowledgo, and to seo tn it that all who
possess and exercise political lights shall have
tho opportunity to acquire tho knowledge
which wid mako their nb are in the Govern
nient, a blessing and not a danger. In view of
tho magnitude of tho advantage conferred,
and especially to the pcoplo of South Caro?
lina, I feel that I will only be meeting their
wishes in suggesting to them, and to tho
pastora of their respectivo congregations,
that advantage should he taken ot their noxt
meeting for public worship, of returning
especial thanks tu Almi.hty God for this
signal manifestation of His merav, in the final
triumph of their long struggle for their civil
and political rights.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto eotmy
hand, and caused tho groat seal of the
State to bc affixed, atCnlnmbialthis,5th
[i,. H.] day of April A. D. 1870, and in the
ninety-fourth year of tho Independence

"Fot/a MILLIONS OF VoTEnfj."-Presi?
dent Grant expresses the opinion in his
message to Congress, that the fifteenth
an^?ntoent will add ???S?DOjff? ihe
nmnbtfrof voters.?* Wa?ad^nat irisa be?
fore that it was ?..intended. ;tho hphole
colored population' should fifote, ?OOO,
000 b?ng their ontiro estimated number,
-tne?, women ntfdr children:- We'should
like to bo informed whether on the sup?
position that the whole colored race of
? America, from the cradle to the grave,
is to have a vote, it is also proposed to
embrace the white,, women and children
of the republic within the elustic folds
of the fifteenth 'amendment? In that
event we shallhave 40,000,000 of -voters,
which ' will "bo" about as' near universal
suffrage as we are ever likely to arriv?.
We have no desire, however, to arouse
any false hopes in the hearts of the
loaders of the woman's rights persua?
sion. We fear that, whatever may be
General Grant's construction of the
fifteenth amendment, only the males of
21 years and upwards will be permitted
to vote, so that tho new recruits to the
voting population will number probably
about 800,000, instead of ?,000,000, one
fifth of ? population being the propor?
tion usually estimated for Voters. In
our own ?State the colored population is
perhaps about 175,000, whom General
Grant may expect to voto en masse, but
if they do not, then the number of hew
electors in Maryland will be 35,010. We
would not, however, have the women
and children of any color, or in any
Btate, despair. When tho colored ele?
ment has had timo te test, its capacity
for the responsibilities and duties of go?
vernment, it may be expected that an
opportunity to become electors will be
afforded to that sex, whioh appears to be
considered less endowed than the new
voters with those qualifications of in?
telligence a?d virtue which Gen. Grant
righi)j considers indispensable to the
preservation of free institutions.
It is said that Mrs. Grant objects to
having negroes at her drawing-room re?
ceptions, while Grant himself will re?
ceive a negro delegation any day, to tho
exclusion of n white one. If these
things are true, how long may we hope
to see harmony in the bed-chamber of
tho White House?

EOSKOO.-The Norfolk Daily Journal, of
December ll, 1BG9, says:
I "This medicine is rapidly gaining con tl
i dence of tho people, and the numerous teati
! m on i ala of ita virtues, given by practitioners of
medicino, leaves no doubt that it is a safe and
reliable remedy for IMPURITY OF TUE BLOOP,

Tho last Medical Journal contains an ar li?
do from Prof. B. S. Nowton, M. D., President
of the E Medt-College, city of New York, that
speaks in high terms of its curative proper?
ties, and gives a spocial recommendation of
Koskoo to the practitioners of medicine.
Thia is, wo believe, tho first instance where
such medicines have been officially endorBod
by the Faculty of any of tho Medioal Colleges,

Ararii-With its smiles and it tears,
its merriment and its fickleness, fresh
April comes, sending its lymph-blood
through nil vegetation, and making the
ground one green. In the ancient
Alban calendar, the year was represented
as consisting of ten months, and among
thom April, credited with tbirty,-?js;'?rai?
stood first. Kama's twelve-month '- ca?
lendar assigned it the fourth place, with
twenty-nine days, and thus' lt' remained
till the reformation of the .year tyy', JpVftia
Ctcsar, when it obtained its 'pr?sent
quota of thirty days. The name of this
month is supposed to bo derived from
the Latin word aperio, T op?hl Oar
Anglo-Saxon ancestors called it osier
monath, or month of East winds, and it
is thought that the ecclesiastical term,
Easter, had a similar origin. In this
climate, we look for pleasant weather in
April, and consumptives who have such
a dread of March bail its approach with
hopefulness. Though supposed to be
fickle, tho mouth has always been re?
garded by poets and imaginative writers
with great favor, as it furnished them
with many pretty conceits, and pointed
the moral of chauges so appropriately.

We are glad to know that the old and
well-known music house of Ditson &
Co., 711 Broadway, New York and Bos?
ton, has with them a Caroliuinn-Mr. E.
A. Bonner, who is a practical musician
and understands, too, the tastes of our
people. Ditson & Co. have always had,
we believe, the greater part of the South?
ern music trade. Our people, when in
New York, should call in at 711 Broad?
way, and get all the latest things out; in
the musical world. We wish Mr .Bother
success. I :
