The Reconstruction Villainy.
The law lor reconBtructing Virginia,
Mississppi and Texas, empowers the
President to submit their Constitu
tions to the people, so that the pro
visions may be voted on separately.
In this way objectionable provisions
may be rejected, which gives an ap
pearance of fairness to the proceeding:.
But the death's head is behind it. All
the moat intelligent citizens are dis
franchised and not permitted to vote
at all, leaving". few but negroes and
vagabond whites who are to reorgan
ize the governments of these States as
they havo those of other States pro
Air. Morton's provision. Inserted in
tha last force bill. Is in direct coflict
with the theory ol the constitution hs
to amendments, which is that the
States hhall mkt them after dae de
liberation of thir own free will end
accord This w the provision :
Ami be it further ensv-ted that before

j an that may tf done bylhe i-m ended
p- j e of ihe.Srares of Viigi"i:, TVxnn
and .Mis.iirf.si pin under the aci Just
p.is-ed. On this point Mr. Bayard -aid:
Even wheu thosH States ratify this
amendment giving your party the
advantage of having the tdree votes
of these atates, then what comes ? Is
the end yet to thete people? Are
tney, even then, States entitled to
representation ? Not bo, sir, for I un
derstand another amendment has been
presented and adopted, that again
thy must present themselves before
their captors, again pass beneath their
bow ana spear, to learn what new
term? may yet be exacted before they
an&ii do admitted to representation in
the two Houses of Congress.
Referring to the hope of the States
in question for action in "good faith"
by Congreos hereafter, Mr. Casserly
I shall not appeal to Senators, nor
adjure them, as they have been up
pealed to and adjured bv two of the
ablest, most eloquent and most dis
tinguished of their own party upon
the ground of good faith an appeal
that was literally scoffed out of this
body. Have we lived to see the day
when an earnest, candid, heartfelt ap
peal from one member of the political
majoiity of this body to his fellows of
that majority is received with laugh
ter, is ignominiously turned , out of
doors T If we have come to this, I do
not wonder that a measure such as
this is likely to receive the approba
tion of this body.
-Mr. Casserly continued: ";" 1
Mr. President, if it should o hap
pen that, unwilling to become actors,
not merely in their own degradation,
but in a great wrong to people of the
Northern States, tiiey shall reject
these humiliating conditions imposed
on them here to-day, what then will
be the policy? What next will be
the course to take ? What then will
gentleman have to offer who have
been declaring here their purpose and
their desire to have a settlement of
the difficulties in those States and the
restoration of the States themselves to
the Union? -
I am sure the people of these States
will act In this matter with an eye to
their own duty and to the oolia-atioos
arising out of the condition of their
own communities . Whatever they do
Ishall not he disposed to criticise t in
nuy l'buwius Nijirit. uoe tniOg 1 Will
say : if tne State of my home ou the
Pacific coast, 10 which 1 am bouud by
every tie that can link me to the liv
Ingorihe dead, were to-day as the
State of Virginia Is, upon whose hills
we look-from these windows, and if
the same hard terms were proposed to i
her by this body, I think I know that
to the extent of my poor abilities', and
wherever my weak voice ooul J be 1
heard, I should everywhere, at all
tinier, in season and out of season,
urue upon the people of my Stute this
eternal truth cf history, of man, and
Heaven,- that a race can survive eve
rything but its own dishonor, brought
upon it by its own act.
Senator Thurman also opposed the
provision. We quote from his speech:
When you coerce Virginia, Miasissr
ippi and Texas to put this article In
the Constitution ol the United States,
to vote for it as a part of the ConstJ
tlon of the United States, you do noc
coerce them alone. You coerce Ohio,
you coerce Indiana, you coerce Illi
nois, you coerce every State whose
people are unwilling to adopt the
amendment. If I understand the
honorable Senator from Indiana, it is
for the express purpose of overriding
the will of Indiana, the pivotal State,
as he says, that he wishes these three
btates to be coerced into an adoption
of the amendment. I may misunder
stand pirn, Dut it seems so tn me.
Mr. Morton Will the Senator al
low me to explain 9
Mr. Thurman Certainly.
Mr. Morton Not to override the
will of the people of Indiana, but to
override a revolutionary movement
in Indiana, by whloh the Legislature
has been broken up, to prevent; (hat
Legislature from ratifying the amend
ment, as it otherwise would have
Mr, Thurman Well, sir, I do not
think the explanation of the gentle
man relieves the difficulty. .If the
fieople of Indian i are in favor ol rat
Tying the fifteenth amendment to the
Constitution why is the Senator from
Indiana afraid to trust them on the
question? Why does he wish the
question passed upon by a Legislature
that was elected upon no such issues,
that was elected upon the Chicago
platlorm, which declared that to ev
ery loyal State, and he will not deny
that Indiana is a loyal State, belonged
the right to decide for itself who
should enjoy the privilege of suffrage
within it. It was upon that solemn
pledge oi your party that you got a
majority in the State if Indiana, a
State that not only voted against ne
gro suffrage but that adopted its pres
ent constitution, by which negroes are
even prohibited Irom migrating to
the State, by ninety-one thorn-and ma
jority. .Now. I say, if the people of
Iudiaua are in lavor oi tne mieenin
amendment they can be trusted to
But reason bad no weight, and the
infamous outrage was adopted.
It is" difficult to tell collo from bots
In a horse, butatablebpoonlul of chlor
oform, In twice as much mucilage, is
a good remedy for either.
How Ohio is to be Made a Negro Voting
The Washington correspondence of
the Cincinnati Commercial, under date
of Friday, says
'Mr. Morton's amendment toihe
bill to reconstruct Virginia, Missis
Blppi and Texas, requiring those States
to ratify the Fifteenth Constitutional
Amendment before they are admitted
to representation ia Congress, was
passed by the Senate, to day, by 80 to
"The effect or Mr. Morton's propo
sition will be, that those States being
anxious for admission, will ratify the
Fifteenth Amendment at once, and
thus the concurrence of the required
three fourths of the whole number of
States will have been obtained io the
amendment, and It will thus become
a part of the Constitution without the
ratification of the Legislatures of the
States ol Ohio and Indiana."
Here we have the whole fraud in a
nut shell. The Southern States are
to be deprived of their rights under
the Constitution by the Radical ma
jority in Congress, unless they adopt
the negro suffrage amendment to the
Federal Constitution, and theu they
are to be allowed a representation in
Congress, and this is done to force ne
gro suffrage' on Ohio, Indiana and
other States, against the consent of

The Agricultural College bill was
up in the &euate again yesterday. The
proposition to lusert the word 'white'
so as to exclude colored persons from
the benefit of the institution was re
jected by a vote of 12 yeas and 22
nays. The bill is the special order
for this afternoon.
Mr. Leeto's bill providing that none
but long Bpan bridges shall be con
structed across the Ohio river, was
defeated in the Houe yesterday af
ternoon, lacking four votes of having
a constitutional majority. Air. Jew-
ett was present and spoke against the
bill. ' .. . , .

The following Is another Install
ment from Senator Sprague's speech
fn the TJ. S. Senate: , ,
"I do not sympathize with that
class of. men who are holding up to
the gaze of the people of the United
States the sacred n ess of that debt. I
was opposed in your caucus, Mr. Pres
ident, to an amendment of the Con
stitution . eivlng undue protection to
that debt, and I am also now opposed
to any reiterated protection by the
law contemplated by the bill before
the Senate. 1 do not think there is
much sacredness in the issue of bonds
for the Pacifie Railroad, which be
comes a part of your national debt;
and I tee nothing that is sacred in the
thousand and one unnecessary appro
priations that are constantly made at
eaeh session of Congress.
The great bulk of the debt of the
nation has been created in pursuance
of a necessary and Important object,
the maintaining of the territorial in
tegrity of the United fctatea. In Great
Britain to day the pioflts on almost
any one of her . great iudustries her
commerce, her manufacturers ot Iron
or coal, or cotton, pr wool are sum
clent to pay the interest on her na
tional debt. But ia it the part of a
people to drift into the condition of
Mexican society, where the national
debt is an oppressive burden to the
community? If those whose business
it la to make, light ot the public bur
den, neglect, either from ignorance or
auy other cause, to pursue a policy
that will relieve, instead of a policy
that will destroy ; if the people of the
country are to day, in consequenae of
the public debt bearing heavily upon
theui, drifting, as I verily believe,
into the condition ot Spanish or Mex
ican society, would any one demand
tint s(itu of blavery rather than can
cellation of llie deOt? y.
".Sir, you h.tve provided for whole
s tie ie puliation of private debts, by
your enact meut at recent sessions of
Congress. You can cancel debts be
tween the citizens of the country, but
y'-.u look with holy horror upon a
suggestion that if you pursue a policy
of destruction this incubus will be
sloughed off? ou look upon it with
horror that any one should touch that
sacred circle ?"
Mr. Sprague then went Into details
to show how the stupid or dishonest
politicians had pursued a policy, the
effect of which was to destroy trade,
depress industry and overburden the
people with taxation. ' Here are some
extracts : ; J-.
"I tell the Senate and the people of

people oi omer countries t Why, sir,
mat aDsura doctrine was given up
two hundred and fifty years ago. In
Elizabeth's time the whole people of

debt should go to Increase the capital

on the other hand, we "have been try

other courtries, the very thing on
which, and by . which alone we are
able to do our business. Bonds, cur
rency, Interest, are capital, and you
can not separate one from tne other."
After showing that industry and
trade, which yield profit, had nearly
ceased, he proceeded! '

we shall lose.

THE G. G. E.
Some Scraps from History of the
Man Who Got a District Attorneyship
in Exchange for a Dinner.
President Grant sent to the Senate
for confirmation, the other day. the
appointment of James Wadaworth to
re united state Jttarsnan ior tne
Sonthern District of New York,' As
the ofifioe is a responsible and lucrative
one, some rather eearcmng inquiries
have since been made into Mr. Wads-
worth's history and character, with a
result which so far has by no means
rendered the Senate favorable to the
nomination. The Sun has also, been
prosecuting Inquiries on its own ac
count, some of the results of which It
published yesterday .morning, while
it has more still to bring forward. .
Among the documents in our hands
relating to the subject is Air. wads-
worth's official list of his creditor, fur
nished in the course of . proceedings
commenced by him on the 80th of
May; 1668, to procure his discharge
from his debts under the United States
Bankrupt Law. The list contains the
names of one nunarea ana more crea
tors, . and the total amount owing
them comes to $083,074. i carry lour
hundred thousand dollars of debt is
a tolerable heavy burden for a man to
carry an his shoulders in addition to the
duties of a public office, and it is no
wonder that Mr. wactsworin snouia
want to get rid of it.' J.
The perusal ot this list 01 one nun-
dred debts and upward' gives rise to
much interesting speculation as to tne
manner in which they were contract
ed. How could a lawyer for that
was Mr. Wadsworth's profession
wslbly get hold of and lose or spend
S3.000 of other people's money? The
answer to this question is plain e-
noogh to any one who has seen the
farce of "Ralslne the Wind." lake
Jeremy Diddler. Mr. Wadaworth seems
to have given hi whole mind to the
art of borrowing, and to have depend
ed on it for a living.
One Illustration or his many uevices
is connected with an item of $300.
which appears qn the Mat M due to
John E. Williams, Esq., the respect
ed President oi the Metropolitan Bank
of thl3 city. Wadaworth had an of
fice in that neighborhood, and was,
in consequence, known to Mr. Wil
Hams. One morning he 'came in a!
great hurry and said to him, - "Mr.
Williams, my boy, who keeps the
key of my safe, has not come in yet,
and I want to use right away $300
that I have got locked up there. Will
you be good enough to lend me the
money till I can get it out?" Thrown
off his guard by this plausible story, 1
Mr. Williams handed over the $30(J,
and that was the last he saw of it. ':
With this due i to the: nature or
Wadsworth's Derations., one begins
to comprehend many curious things.
About twentv-flve different- places
seem, to have been visited by him, at
different times, from Buffalo to Bos
ton, and rrom Putney, v t, to xain
more. The heaviest is one of $C8,lSo
du ta VL C. Thomas ' Ci Baltimore,
and the next heaviest 'ope of $65,430
due to the estate of E. Waldea, of
Buffalo, deceased. Then there appears
ta be owing to the estate of General
James 8. Wadaworth $23,883, which
shows that the distinguished relative
of the bankrupt was not quito so bad
ly treated aa some other people. We
regret to see that our friend Robert
Hoe, the printing press ouiider, is
down for $634, and James Brown for
$2,000. A woman, Abble B. Gilder-
sleeve, figures for. $2,500; and there
are a number of small sums of about
$100 owing to tailors,- haber-dashers,
furniture-makers, and even brother
lawyers, which shows that, Wads
worth did not respect the old maxim,
'Hawks do not pick out hawks' eyes."
We have not brought np these mat
ters from any ' personal hostility to
Mr. Wad8Wortb. Indeed, so ignorant
were we of them that several weeks
since we signed a petition for his ap
pointment to this very office, adding
our name to those of a number of re
spectable citizens. But when facts
like these are brought to our -knowledge
respecting a man who has been
nominated to so responsible a place,
we hokt it to be our duty to lay them
before the public. .

A White Maiden from the Orberlin
District in Pursuit of a Lover
—Ail about it.
The appearance before one of our
city magistrates, yesterday, of a very
handsome young woman,' and the
story she there related furnished an
excellent illustration of the effects of
Radicalism as it is taught by the lead
era of that party at the present day.
Ho more potent argument can be pro
duced to show that the ultimate end
and aim of the recognized teachers of
that party is the equalization of the
races, than that a white female who
received her education at Oberlln
should conceive a strong affection - for
a big black negro an affection of so
ardent a nature as to cause her to for
sake her home, friends, honor, every
thing. For is not the Oberlin District
the place where Radicalism was born?
At ieaat.did not one ofthe progenitors
of that party Giddings, deceased,
hail from there? But-r
Mnry Stephens, born of .white rmr-
ents a well to do old couple residing
not iar irom me town of . uoerun,
Ohio, was tenderly nursed in her in
faucy, received a liberal education,
and at the age of eighteen years
about one year ago she' waa ackhol
edged beile of the region in. which she,
with her parents, resided. According
to ner story, Mary hod scores of sui
tors belonging to the Caucasia n race
But these suitors did not suit her. At
school and at home, she had been
taught that a negro was as good as a
white man and sometimes a iittld bet
ter. This idea had not during Mary's
childhood become the leading one in
the creed of a political party, but it
has since. The only difference on
that score, between eight years ago
and the present time, is that the doc
trines that were then peculiar to the
land where Mary lived are now the
accepted tenets.of a party that extends
throughout the length aud breadth of
theiand- But wedigress. Mary con
tinues her story to the Alderman. At
Oberlin she met a burly negro, and
inconsequence, perhaps, of the lessons
that had been instilled Into heryoung
mind, she failed to perceive the differ
ence in the races that is so plainly
perceptible to a great many white
people, and, to use her own words,
"she thonght she would like him as a
husband.". The negro knew nothing
of this, however, for Mary had only
met him two or three times, and, as
she related it, "she had not an oppor
tunity to acquaint him with the state
of her feelings." The-negro left Ober
lin and came to Pittsburg.. Mary had
set her head upon him. and she soon
after came to this city with the hope
of finding her adored "black and-tan-ner."
- Here a link is wanting. Miss
Stephens states that she came to this
city and stopped at a hotel, but she
neglected to say whether she found
the identical negro that took her
heart by storm. But she found a ne
gro, and was satisfied. And she lov
ed this negro, too. Indeed, he may
be the Oberlin darkey, but Mary
doesn't say. Ah intimacy sprang up:
Mary was loving and trusting, and
the negro at the hotel took advantage
of her weakness. In order that she
might be ever near the nigger of her
choice, Miss S.- engaged herself as
chambermaid at the hotel, and in this
manner an intim.-tcy was- continued
until a lew days ago,, when MisB S.
learned, through an employee at the
hotel, that her lover was paying his
addresses to a dusky maiden in Haytl,
with whom he was soon te be married.
This was too much even for a white
girl who had received her education
at Oberlin. bhe first upbraided her
false-hearted negro, and this not prov
ing effectual, she threatened.- With
a careless laugh the inconstant one
turned upon his heel and walked a
way. Next we have a suit before an
Aiaerman, Mary Stephens making
and information charging Luther Mil
ler with seduction. A warrant was
is-ued, but the defendant got wind of
tne unnappy termination or his in
timacy with the Oberlin girl, and left
the city in time to evade arrext. This
was last Monday. - Yesterday the
prosecutrix again made her aDnear-
ance at the Alderman's office and de
sired to withdraw the information
stating that the difficulty had been
amicably settled. She did not tell
now the settlement was effected. '

From an exhaustive review of the
Cuban 'revolution, an exchange has
compiledthe following facts : The Cu
ban revolution commenced October
10, 1868, by the pronunciaraento of
Carlos Manuel de Cespedes, with 127
followers. It is asserted that at the
present time the revolution has ex
tended over a circuit of 20,000 square
miles, two-thirds of the area of Cuba.
within these limits there are 147 cities
and towns, half of which, it is report
ted, are held by the insurgents. . The
following estimates have been made
of the strength of the revolutionists
or patriotic party. Out of the 150,000
men able to near arms on mo island
of Cuba, 43,000 are in tho ranks ofthe
patriots; 30,oo(j or them being sta
tioned in tne eastern, and 15.000 in
the Central Department. The total
population of the district in rebellion
s 543,738, of which there are in the
Eastern Department 126,868. whites,
66,374 negroes free before the revolu
tion, and 51,778 slaves just emancipa
ted by tne patriot leaders. - in the
central department the numbers are
172,567 whites, 41,444 negroes, form
erly free, and 69,207 slaves newly
freed. The estimated wealth' of the
real estate held m the territory by the
patriots was, in 1862, $550,000,000, aud
its industry and commerce were rec
oned as- representing. a capital of
74,000,000. The annual productions
were: Sugar,' $62,000,000 : tobacco

What the Beast Demands.
. The New York Journal of Com
merce thus epitomizes the provisions
of General Butler's Southern disabili
ty relief bill :
- "Every ex rebel who desires restor
ation to political rights is required to
apply by petition to a court of the
United States In the State or Terri
tory where he lived during the rebel
lion. , Such a tribunal would probably
do justice by him more quickly than
congressional committee, and in that
respect; the bill is good enough. But
beyond that we encounter- only the
most offensive and objectionable con
ditions. The applicant is expected to
tell "in what manner he had given
aid, comfort or assistance to the re
bellion, either voluntary or iuvolnn- .
tary," going into the most minute
and tiresome details. Havine thus
made a perfectly clear breast, he must
saythathe now believes aud con
fesses, such acts were wrong, rebellious
and wicked," -and "that he admits
and believes said governments ftho

ing and conducting himself as a true
aud loyal citizen of the UnitedStates."
These are the expressions of contri
tion and supplication demanded."
