Fifteenth Constitutional Amendment.
A Kubscriber aska ua to state the
number of States, and to de-Ay-Hate
them, that will be likely to ratily the
Fifteenth Constitutional Negro Suff
rage Amendment, and what Bttttes
w ill vote against it, and how many
elect new L.egislatures before they
act upon it.
Under the Constitution, the assent
of the Legislatures of three-fourtha
of the States are required to adopt an
amendment. There are thirty-seven
States In the Union, including the
States of Virginia, Mississippi and
Texas, which were utterly disfran
chised at the Presidential election.
Of this number twenty-eight are nec
essary to constitue the three-iourths.
The rejection of the amendment by
ten States will defeat it.
Tho following States have now leg
islatures that are democratic : Ohio,
New Jersey, Oregon, California, Ken
tucky, Delaware, Maryland and
Georgia. To these we may add the
three States disfranchised, wn have
no Legislature to act upon it. This
makes eleven States, more tban
enough to defeat it. But there are
other States who will probably not
adopt it. Among the rest is ludhtna.
where the question, to a certain ex
tent, will be involved in the special
elections to be beid in a few days.
The Democratic members have re
signed, and constitutionally broken
up the Legislature, in order to pre
vent the fraud of its adoption by the
old Legislature. The democratic
legislature of Ohio will not act upon
it. but will very properly refer it to
the people at the next ejection, bucn,
we presume, win oe me courso 01
other Democratic Legislatures. There
are so mmy contingencies in the mat
ter that, at present, the result is au in
the futnre. Nearly all the States elect
new Legislatures, but how many of
them will be allowed to act on tna
amendment it is impossible to say.
We do not believe that it will become
a part of tho Constitution ; certainly
not. if our friends in the States act
with vigor and determination in op
position. They can carry the coming
The Public Credit Bill.
The SenAto cut off all the multiplied
amendments upon tha public credit
strengthener of General Schenck, and
have lopped and excised it down to
Mr. Edmunds's old declaration that
everything we owe ought to be due in
gold, no matter whether we ever pay
a red for it or not. The second aec
tion, relative to the prescription of
gold contracts, was rejected, and its
deTeat was largely owing to the very
direct and conclusive argument made
against it by the new Delaware Sena
tor, Mr. Bayard. This gentleman
surprised some by his early utterance.
but it was at once evident that not his
father in his prime exceeded the son
now in his. Mr. Bayard's arguments,
subsequently adopted by Messrs. Sum
ner and Stewart, killed the section,
thus saving an inconceivable amount
of future litigation, sure to have aris
en had it been retained.
Peace Wanted in Virginia.
The President is likely to have to
take sides, one way or another, on the
Virginia Radical Biot question. The
negroes and the scalawags, under
Hunnicut and others, have banded
against Governor "Wells, and carpet
baggers and mulattoej generally have
gone in for Wells without limitation.
Wells, too, is in, and as he is using the
nine points of the law with effect the
row is inconceivable. The peace has
been broken by both sides, and each
side has appealed to General Stone-
man, and through him to the admin
istration for recognition. These divi
sions refusing to coalesce will give
much trouble to the political mag
nates here. It Is reported that Wil
son has gone down to Petersburg to
exude oil on the troubled waters.
The Fifteenth Amendment and the
Duty of Legislatures.
"When the question of ratifying
the proposed Fifteenth Amendment
came beiore tne Illinois legislature.
Judge Woodson, a Radical member
offered a resolution to submit tne
matter to the people to be decided by
them at the next annual election in
November. In support of his mo
tion. Judge Woodson remarked that
in times past the people of Illinois
had distinctly repudiated negro suff-
: rage, and were not now known to be
in its favor; and to refuse to consult
them on the subject would betray a
want of confidence in them out of
character with the professions of the
party. The resolution of Judge Wood
son was voted down, and the amend
ment ratified. "
Comment upon this high-handed
tyrannical course Is unnecessary.. It
is only another straw in the history
of this Radical power. It is the old

CAPTAIN GRANT OF THE MULE
I'm Captain Grant, of the Mule Brigade,
A tanner of hides I was by trade,
Till at West Point m cadet I was made,
To cut a swell in the army.
I rode wilh a monkey round the ring,
Round the Ring,
Rocnd the Ring
I rode with a monkey round the ring
Before I went to the army.
Spoken. One day when the monkey, the
mule and myself, were out on farlow, 'we
all three got drunk, and cut a swell in a New
York china shop. There being no one to
introduce ua, the store keeper took offence.
and had a court martial called, which wrote
me a letter, in a neat envelop, thus:
Dear Captain Grant, of the Mule Brigade,
Return at once to the tanner s trade:
You are not fit, the court is afraid,
To cut a swell in the army!
Tben off my shoulders came my f traps,
My battons all fell from my naps,
1 began to think myselt perhaps
I wasn't cut out for the army!
I next hauled wood crowbaits I drove,
Crowbaits I drove
Crow baits I drove
Which very clearly seemed to prove
I wasn't cut out for the armyl
Spoken. Then, thank the gods, John
Brown's war for the Union broke out: and
Honest Abraham wanted soldiers. Riffraff
was at a premium. Decayed tapsters and
serving men, thieves, 'gamblers, bankrupts,
loafers, confidence men, convicts, lunatics.
niggers, and cashiered cadets were all in de
mand as officers. This made an opening for
the subscriber, and once more I w a
Captain Grant of the Mule Brigade.
But crowbaits wouldn't sell or trade!
So of their skins top-boots I made
To cut a swell in the army!
Then to old Jesse Grant I wrote,
A very polite and touching note:
''Please send thy son a soldier's coat
To cut a swell in the armyt"
That coat old Jesse could not see,
Could not see,
Could not see
And I thought for awhile 'twist you and me
-Id lose my poslsa U) the army.
Spoken. But the "Society for Relief of
Orphan Children," combined with the
"Young Men's Christian Association," and
bought me a slop shop coat with bright
shoulder straps and shining buttons; and
then no thank a to my paternal ancestor,
could sing again
I'm Captain Grant, of the Mule Brigade;
This soldier's coat is ready made;
I've killed my crowbaits, quit my trade,
To cut a swell in the army!
Spoken. And when the war was oven
when the life of the nation was saved: when
all the money that the people tad earned
from the foundation of the Government was
stolen or squandeied; a first mortgage to the
bondholder on all their property for more
than it is worth; one half the proceeds
their labor assigned to sharpers for a thous
and years to come; one million of our brav
est and best buried in trenches; five hundred
thousand widows, and a million orphans,
bereaved and destitute: 'llinira," the new
Lame for banditti, ruling every where. Rings
stealing in the name of whisky; Rings steal
in,; in the name of ir a, Rings stealing
the name of copper, mock railroads built
the Pacific to make Rings rich; two-thirds'
of both branches of Congress selling laws.
at an established scale of prices, varying
with the value of the enactment to the pur
chasers; Death, Debt, Despotism! the
"National" Trinity! the Black Republican
Godhead! ruling and ruining all but the
Rings, who is so fit for President, as
Captain Grant of the Mule Brigade, ..
Whose boots of crowbait skins were made,
Whose coat was bought in the slop shop trade
- mm cutting a swell in the armyr

Is Liberty One of the Lost Arts.
In a recent talk with a member of Con
gress, who was full of pomposity, wind
ignorance, to say nothing vt a profession
insolence, he made the remark; ' 'Why
this is now the first .free country, and
only free country, that ever existed." Judge
of the vacuity of his countenance when
replied, that it is a very grave question,
mong men o f learning and intelligence,
whether liberty may not be reckoned among
the lost arts. We then related to him sub
stantially the following facts which giro
painful edge to such doubts. All the'ancient
governments weie free States or Republics.
Tho ancient Archia was a confederacy

Thus, in all countries, republics, or free

WASHINGTON, March 16.
Discussion on tu tenobb of-ofpics box.
The bill to repeal the Tenure -of -office act
was then taken up. The Secretary read the
bill with the amendment reported by the
Judiciary Committee yesterday, striking out
the word "repealed" and inserting instead
"suspended until the next session of Con
gress."' Mr. Tbcmbcij. briefly reviewed the prac
tice and legislation in regard to appointments
to and removal from office in the past, and
said that, while the Judiciary Committee
were satisfied that the present administration
ought to be relieved from the embarrass
ment caused by the Tenure -of -Office act,
yet they thought that a regard for consisten
cy and for the principle underlying the bill
required that it should not be abolished, but
only suspended. -
Mr. Tkitkua (Dem , Ohio) said that in
the Judiciary Committee he had not voted
to amend In any way the bill of the House
to repeal the act, because he believed that it
ought to be repealed. Either the Constitu
tion vested ut the rresiaent an unlimited
and unqualified power f removal from of
fice, or it made the concurrence of the Sen
ate necessary. If the constitutional power
of the President to remove from .office was
absolute, Congress had, of course, no rieht
to restrict It; and if, on the other hand, ac
cording to the theory of the Tenure-af -Office
act the Constitution provided that the joint
action of the President and the Benata should
be necessary in order to remove them, Con
gress had no right to evade that provision
by suspending the law. j he proposal to
suspend the law implied a theory of the con.
Btitution, which was wholly untenable. If
the Tenure-of -Office act was a good and
constitutional law, to suspend it would be to
disregard the comstitution, and the people
would naturally ooWe to the conclusion that
Contrress interprets the constitution to mean
one thing when one man is President, and
another thing when another man is Presi
dent. Mr. Morton (Bad., Ind.1 made an
argument in lavor of the uncondition
al repeal of the act. The language of
the amendment reported ny tne J udi-
ciary Committee was the language of
distrust. It proposed to put the Pres
ident on probation until the next ses
sion of Congress, saying to him, if
your conduct during the interval does
not pieasp us, tne law wm uieu go a-
gain into full force. In his opinion
the country nad gainea uotning by

tion of President Jobnson,and the lie-
nublican nartv had gained nothing bv

operation of the law as it stands, and
to show that instead ot pumying the
public service it actually served to
keen corrupt men in omce under it. lie

Mr. Howard (liaa.. jjucn.) protest
ed against the imputation of the Sen
ator from Indiana (Mr. Morton), that

The imputation was without founda

Mr. Howard was. willing, for the
sake of being in harmony with his
brother Senators, to vote to suspend
the law for a certain time, but he felt
that in doing so he did a great deal,
and he would not, under any circum
stances, agree to its repeal.
Mr. Edmunds (Had., vt.) tnougnt
that a disinterested spectator, if there
were any such, would have some cu
riosity to know the occasion oi this
attempt to strike off the statute book
a law for which some of the wisest
and purest of the fathers of the coon
try had struggled, and tor tne want
of which Executive patronaga had
more man once oy uirecb interven
tion been used to control and coerce
the will of the people. The support
ers ol the attempt to repeal this law
were of two classes, t ne Democratic
party in the Senate advocated it in a
solid body; some oi mem proDaniy
on principle, but others, no doubt, in
tne nope no aouDi Dy - repealing ine
law the Republican party would put
Itself in the wrong, aud would stand
before the Deople of the country and
the world as a party which had re
sorted to a mean and unconstitutional
contrivance against an executive that
it did not like, and which now make
haste to abandon that contrivance in
favor of an executive that it did like.
Acting with the Democratic party
were some of the most able and emi
nent members of the Republican
oartv. who. however, acted in this
caBe as ii ours were a government of
men instead oca govern ment or raws.
There being this strong combination
for the repeal of the law, it was worth
while for senators seriously to con
sider what it was they were asked to
do. He would remind them that nls
tory was not S) lent upon this question.
It was the old contest of one man

ple as represeuusu uy weir u wu sguata.
The Question bad been mooted in the
Senate of the first Cod gress of the
United States, wherefcthe advocates
a strong Executive quarreled with
the Constitution as it was, because
did not eive them a strong enougn
government; because the Executive
was not near enough in power to
kino. The debates in that first sessr
ion of the Senate were not public, but
there had been handed down to
the notes of one of the Senators, taken
upon the spot, a portion of which he
would read ironi manuscript, a loner
and interesting account of the debate,
showing, in conclusion, that it was
only by tne castiug vote of the Presi
dent of the Senate, John Adams, that
tne advocetes oi a strong .Executive
triumphed. He then went on to say
that the question was too 'great to be
determined witn reference to tne per
sonal character or any single presi
dent or Vice President, a question not
meeely for to day or to morrow, but

thought that in this view the Senate
ought carefully to consider whether it
could wisely divest itself ot a power
which all except the Democrats con

stitution, or might properly be con-
lerred upon It by law. Was there no
danger that we should have another

not. There would be a country left
after General Grant and Mr. Colfax

wonld be contentions of parties and
factions as heretofore. The army of
postmasters, collectors and assessors
would still attend the primary meet
ings (laughter), and there would be
the same danger that had always ex

booty the burglars escaped unmoles

could be at that time obtained. The
bank officials at once telegraphed to
Messrs. Smith, Piereon and West, de

the case was placed to be worked up.

Pierson, of Baltimore, placed himself
in communication with Capt. Young,
who promised to give him all the aid
in his power, the Targe reward offered
being an additional incentive to enlist

the matter rested for several weeks.
until one day a reputable broker, do

UDon CaDtain Young and informed
that official that a man an entire

offered for sale a quantity of bonds at
a rate so much below the market val
qe that be immediately became sus
picious that they nad not been Hon

assistance of Capt. Young, to estab

purpose of negotiating the bonds

portion of which were two windows

so that although nothing that trans
pired in one office could be seen in
tne otner, yet ail tne conversation
could be distinctly heard. When all
nad been arranged, and tne omce had
been opened for business, the gentle
man wno bad placed the police in pos

was instructed that if McQuade called
on him again, to decline to have anv
thing to do with the bonds, but to re.

been employed and put In possession
of the Broadway office, as one who
would probably purcnase them u ne
could get them cheap enough. Mc-
iuade, who soon called upon the
Broad street broker, swallowed the
bait, and one afternoon he paid a call
to the office of the bogus broker, who.

beat about the bush, and inquired
What certain bonds were worth, and

he had none in his possession, but he

office, however, before any conclusion
nad been arrived at, but promised to
call again. A day or two after, Mc
Quade called again. - At this inter
view ne produced . full list of the
bonds which he desired to sell, and
aiioweo, a copy e tnia nat to oe maoe
by the bogus broker. Finally,- a bar
gain was made, and the next day was
appointed for the delivery of the
bonds, the purchaser promising to
pay ior wem witn a certtoed cneck
on a : city bank. Thia McQuade per
emptorily declined to accept, insisting
upon navlng tne purchase money tor
the bonds in greenbacks, and nothing
else. A positive appointment was
then made for 11 o'clock on the foi
lowing day, when the cash would

that the negotiacion had progressed
so far favorably was communicated to
Superintendent .Kennedy, who there
upon supplied tne broker with a nuge
pile of counterfeit and bogus bank
notes, with which be was to still fur
ther hoodwink McQuade. During ail
this time a period of three weeks
Capt. Young nad not called to his as
sistance any of his skillful detectives,
but had been working alone, under
direction of the superintendent. Aa
(be crisis was approaching it was neo
essary for him to have some one aid
in securing the holders of the bonds
when tney called at the omce. On
the morning of the eventful day, he
called Detective Irving into hia ofilee,
and told him he was about to make
an arreat, and wanted his aid, and
the same time promised to give mm
$10Q whether successful or not. To
this proposition Irving acceded, and
tney both started down town, ua
the way down to the office they met
Isaac Ndsall, an ex -policeman, who
was also taken with the officers to as
sist in making the arrest. On ' arri
ving at the premises, Captain Young,
Irving and Edsali esconced them
selves in the office adjoining the one
occupied by the broker, in such a po
sition that they could hear all that
was said in the adjoining room.
Punctual to the appointment Mc
Quade arrived jit the office, accompa
nied by one James Weaver. Unsus
pectingly they waed into the trap
which had been laid for them, and
which was then baited by the pile

compared witn tqe is anq iounq cor-
rect. A signal which had been agreed
upon previously was tnen given, ana
the officers went to the door of the of
I flee, and, on attempting to enter,
i found it locked from the inside. In
this dilemma, Irving rushed back
into the room which they had just
vacated, and, forcing open one of the
windows, sprang through it into the
room, alighting on a lounge. He was
confronted by Weaver and McQuade,
wno covered mm witn their pistols.
Before they could fire he had erasned
one of the ruffians by the arm, and at
the same moment Capt. Young, who.
by projecting nls nuge form agamsi
the frail door, had forced it open, en
tered the room, pistol in hand, and
ordered the men to lower their weap
ons. Finding themselves flanked.
they obeyed, and were secured. In
their possession were found bonds to
the amount of $99,000. which were
seized by Capt. Young, and, together
witn me prisoners, taken to police
headquarters. Here the bonds were
identified as a portion of those stolen
from the Nw Windsor Bank. The
prisoners were kept in close confine
men until a requisition was obtained
from Governor Swan, of Maryland,
ior tneir rendition, wnen tney were
taken to Carroll county for trial. The
bonds were turned 'over to the
bank officers, and in. return therefor
they paid into the hands of Captain
xoung f is, ooo, as a reward for the re
co very of their property. Captain
xoung tnereupon ottered Detective
xrving oua as a reward for bis servi
ces in the affair, but this amount the
detective refused to take, demanding
one third of the whole amount as his
share of the reward. Capt. Young
peremptorily refused to accede to this
demand, and claimed that having
agreed to give Irving 1100 tor His ser
vices, he was doing tho handsome by
offering him five times that amount.
Irving alleges as the ground for his
demand, that Young promised after
tne arrest was made, that he (Irving)
should - "ttand in" (have an equal
share) with the Captain In the reward,
Duttnis xoung positively denies, but
admits that he promised if they suc
ceeded in recovering the rest of the
bonds, IrviBg should '-rake" with
him in the reward. The - missing
bonds were snhaeauentlv 'recovered
by the. Baltimore detectives, and In
this reward Young had no share.- In
is Known that Young paid $3,500 to
the man who personated the broker
for his services, $500 to Esdall for bis
assistance, $50 to each of the doormen

and these sums, it la alleged, were
paid out with the full knowledge and
consent of Superintendent Kennedy.
Besides these, tne expenses or omce
hire, Ac, were paid by Capt. Young
out of the reward. Irving persisted
in his demand, . and threatened to
bring the matter before tho commis
sioners, and Capt. Young stated that
sooner than relinquish the money he
bad received, ne would resign ms po
sition. Mutual friends stepped In to
arrange the matter amicably, but they
failed, aa neither party would recede
from nis original position. Finally
Irving brought the subject before the
lioard ror tneir consideration, and at
a recent meeting a resolution wva pas
sed, ordering Capt. Young to account
for or pay in to the Board all sums of
money received by him as rewords
since January 1, 1869. On being serv
ed with- a - copy of this resolution,
Capt, Young, it Is stated, made out

I heard a good and true story about
the Hon. Schnyler, which so well il
lustrates the man, and so faithfully,
perhaps, the new Vice President, that
I cannot withhold it from the reading
public. Mr. Prescott Smith, Super
intendent or the railroad between
Washington and New York, received
during the holidays, a long letter
from Schuyler-rathree whole pages
congratulating him on the manage
ment and success of the road, and
even praising the rolling stock as the
best of its kind. Mr. Smith was be
ginning to feel very good over such a
distinguished communication, when
a few lines from the "yours truly"

to this effect. It was prefaced by an
unpretentious "by and by," but was
in fact the aim and object of the epis

New York to Washington, accompa

Schuyler. He insisted on collecting

[From a Letter in the New York Tribune.]
The Earth Closet and the Treatment of
The Earth Closet and the Treatment of Wounds.
' One of the experimental
commodes sent cut by the Earth Clos
et Company was placed at -the dispo
sal of Dr. Addinell Hewson, of the
Pennsylvania Hospital, in Philadel
phia. Its introduction fnto the sur
gical ward, where it has been for two
a eeks in constant use by about twen
ty patients, and has been subjected to
the severest test possible, has been so
entirely satisfactory that it is proposed
to substitute earth-closets for water
closets wherever these: exist in. that
institution. r --
, At the time of its introduction there
was lying in the ward a patient suff
ering from a very severe compound
fracture of the lower leg. . The wound
was in an unhealthy condition and
its exudations, amounting to a pint
in twenty-four hours, were so offen
sive as to cause a sickening, and even
a dangerous etencn, that the excellent
ventiiiatioD of the ward end the nsu
of the usual disinfectants were hardly
able even to mitigate.
It occurred to Dr. Hewson to test
the power ot dry earth to absorb this
odor, as it had that of excrement.
The effect was magical. ' Kot only
was the ofenalveness entirely over
come, but the effect on the character
of the wound itself was such as no
previous treatment had been able to
compass. The suppuration was, with
in a few days, so reduced that the
daily dressing ot a . single half
pint of earth was not even saturated,
the edges or the flesh wound lost their
Inflamed character, the Intense pain
of the sore was entirely relieved, and
a healthy granulation has ensued.
Such an indication of a newly found
healing agent was not disregarded.
On Monday last, being in Philadel
phia, I was invited to attend the
morning dressing of the earth-treated
wounds. This is what 1 saw :
1. Two patients Buffering from seri
ous varicose ulcers, after prolonged
suffering, and with little relief from
the usual treatmt nty have ceased to be
offensive to their ward mates; they
find their sores growing daily smaller;
all pain and Inflammation . have left
them, and they feel , the certainty of
an early cure. v -
2. A railroad brakemarf,'-' -whose
band was a year and tl -naif ago
crushed between the. coupling. heads
of two cars, and who has never been
free from pain, and seldom from in-

wrist to tne KnucKies, was a lestenng
mass of carious bones and in named
flesh, and whose system had been so
reduced that he could not have sur
vived the amputation which alone
can entirely -relieve him, is now hap
py in freedom from pain. His flesh)
wound has taken on a healthy char
acter, and his strength is fast return
ing. He even hoped to save hia hand,
but the long-continued decay of tho
bone makes this impossible.
8. . Another brakeman. suffering
from a precisely similar injury, in no
respect less serious, bat received with
in a few days, was immediately treat
ed with dry earth. Its constant ap
plication has entirely -prevented In
flammation, and a healthy healing of
the flesh and knitting of the bone
will soon return him to bis duties
with two useful hands.
4. A farm laborer recently had three
of his fingers nearly cut off and his
band fearfully torn by a horse-power
hay-cutter. Since the first applica
tion of the dry earth (a few hours af
ter the accident) he has been free
trom pain, and he will save his band.
6. On Saturday last, a laborer, en
gaged breaking up condemned, shells,
exploded one that was charged. The
powder burnt d the face and arms,
and, seriously, one of his knees, which
was struck by a fragment of the iron
that completely shattered the knee
pan. His burns and the fracture were
immediately dressed with -dry earth,
and the freedom from pain and the
absence of inflammation have been as
marked in bis case as in others. With
out this dressing the knee-joint must
have inevitably become involved, and
the leg must have been lost. Now,
the wound is evidently healing, and,
although it is too early to speek posi
tively, there is every reason to nope
that the only result of the injury will
be a stiff knee. ; . ' v . ...
6. Within a few days a woman was
brought to the nospital with her neck,
and a large portion of her body very
severely and dangerously burned.
That she could escape long weeks of
agony was beyond hop. --. Yet on
Monday her eye was clear and calm
and her voice was strong, and when
0ie' S2W "'.

that she had no pain.
. 7. Last Wednesday an entire breast
was removed for cancer, and tho
wound was dressed with dry earth.
It is now healing rapidly.' There has
been no inflammation and co suppu
ration, and thia woman, too calm
and happy looking, with a healthy
color and a steady voice spoke far
more than her' cheerful words in
thankfulness for her relief.
