The J'.r fmlsion of the Colored
The declaration by a large majority (80
to 23) of the Georgia llouso of Representa
tives (if tho ineligibility of the newly electd
colored members twenty. Ave iu number
followed by obliging them to relinquish
their seats, has caused considerable surprise,
there boing a vague impression prevalent
that tinder the reconstruction acts the
colored men in the reconstructed States are
eligible to oflice ; and whether this were so
or not, the expediency of depriving them
of their seats, where they have beetl duly
elected, seemin; so open to doubt as to
render it Improbable that any such aotioa
would be taken. The gronnd on which the
legislative majority base their action, the
idea of which is said to have originated
with ex-tlovernor Brown, the defeated radi
cal candidate for Sonator, is that neither
under the new constitution of Georgia nor
the fourteenth amendment to the Constitu.
tion of the United States Is there any pro
vision for cilice being held by the colored
man. It is true that the declaration of fun
damental principles composing the first
article of the new constitution of the State
of Georgia piovides) (section 2) that "all
persons born rr naturalized in the United
States, and resident in this htate, are tieretiy
declared citizens of this State, and no law
shall be made or enforced which ehall
abridge the privileges or immunities of ciii
r.nns of the United States or of this State."
The first section of the fourteenth amend,
ment lays down the samo principle in the
" All persons born or naturalized in tho
United Slates, and subject to the jurisdic
tion thereof, are citizens of the United
States and of the State wherein they reside.
JVo iV(e Khali make or enfurceany luw Much
shall abrid it anu ttririleaes or immunilien of
citums of the United Stales," d-c.
While It Is admitted that tho elective
franchise is one of tho privilege conferred
by tho State constitution, it is denied that
either citzenship or the riirbt to voto carries
with it the right to Hold ollico, as is illustra
ted in tho ineligibility of naturalized citi
zeus to hold the ollioe of President, or of
natives to hold that office till thirty-live,
or of either natives or naturalized citizens
to hold a seat In the Senato of the United
State till thirty, or In the House of Rep,
resentathes till twenty.fltre. Moreover, th
proceedings of tho couvention that formed
tho State constitution are appealed to for
the purpose of showing that it actually re.
fused to allirm the title of colored citizens
to seats, in proof of which roferenco wal
made to the expunging, by a vote of 121! t'l
12, of a section which, as originally reported,
provided thut "all qualith'd electors, and:
none others, shall be eligible to any ollict
in this State, unless disqualified by the c n.
slitiition of this Stato or by the Constitution!
of the United States." The Macon (Gv
Telogruph contends that the rejoctioa 0'
this clause, considered In connection wit!
the re-enactment of tho previons yodo t
Georgia, " re-estub!is!id ail tlio old loeinlt
tion of the State not inconsistent w ith til
Constitution of the United Elates and f
Georgia, and Included the business so f
as n.g'o I'lllco-boldiiig in G"orzia undc
that constitution was concerned."
The action by which the colored nion.
bers wore deprived of their seats was nn,
apparently, a party one, more than half tin
republican member voting with tho Wi-.
irity to declare tho blacks incompetent o
vote on Die question of their right to seas
in the llouso. This exclusion, which tra
ferrcd the mnj irity from the Radical to tie
Dxmooratio side, could not have bam
fleeted without Republican oo o( e'stim,
though It is shrewdly surmised that ibis m
a meie Radical trick to make a rase fo a
S-ptombcr sessioi of Congress, and tint
the Georgia Democrats, with singular I n
p"citv, have fallen Into tho trap. The pr
eceding ia one which can bo readily in
verted to the purpo of party and sectiin
allMii, aud the worst use in that (breot .11,
as well as to excite fresh distrust aiumest
tho blacks against the whiles, is bke t
be madd of it. Some of the leading lUileal
journal are sole I v exercised on the sub !,
tho New York Times professing to re;ard
It a step In the direction of the war of rices,
andtheNowY.uk Tiihune availing it,.n
of the occasion to wallow in one of itanonr
genial puddles of unclean abuse, nr'.her
of them bearing in mind that Iu their own
State tho colored men are not allow.J to
votn without a property qnahllcstion, lor to
hold i ("ice, whether they have pmpe-ty or
not, and that if such a thing is not I eon
diet with .the fourteenth cotstitttional
amendment In New York it canscarody be
so in Georgia. Still, It is Insisted tint Con.
gress shall ss.emhlei, and proceed onm more
to reconstruct It reconstruction, Ur as
the State of Georgia Is concerned How
this Is to be done without occnpylig m .re
time In the process than the meniM-r of
Oongr are able to spare at tins moment
fi out tho presidential canvass, and running
the risk beside of committirg son jresli
legislative blunder which will mo-8 ' than
counteract the one llo-y seek to rnuedv, is
not easy to surmise. It would so a at llrt
sight that Georgia, having been pit; back in
the Union, can uo mere be put oi( now by
Congress than any other Stat, b.t a Utdi.
cal sheet in Georgia suggests that Congress
may take the view that if the cohrod mew.

hers of the Georgia Legislature are not en
titled to seats, the ratification of the con.
stittulonal amendment by that State, which
could not l ave been adopted but for their
admission to seats, has not boen legal and
sufficient, and consequently Georgia is not
entitled to representation in Congress or to
vote Id the presidential election, and may
be remanded to military government. It is
very dool'tful, however, whothcr Congress
would bae any legislative action it might
take upon the assumption that the colored
member are not entitled to seats, thereby
stultifying itself for admitting Georgia upon
the exactly opposite hypothesis, though it
has tho power to punish her If it choose,
and might not be very particular about the
process. It would, however, be no punish,
ment to put her again tinder military rule,
fur it appears that tho most quiet of tho
Southern States are those which are radi
cally ke(t out of tho Union, whilst the In
troduction of thorn upon reconstruction
principles seems, In almost every State, to
be the signal of political and social convul
sions and anarchy. The events in Georgia
add another to the many illustrations of the

Conral, of Louisiana, and other gentlemen
who Us evidently traveled a great deal.
Besides these a number of others made up

Deraicratic State of New Jersey, occnplcd
the s-at with Gen. Lee; your correspond
ent stt with Mr. Conrad, the remainder be
ing ti the front seat. Passing through a
coun ry noted for tho grandeur nnd maenll
cenra of its monntain scenery, the princi
pal tiplc of conversation was upon this sub
ject and General Lee, besides evincing a
thouugh knowledge of the country, was the
principal authority upon all tho different
speiies of trees, their nature, &e. Mr. Con
rad was very loquacious and olten a little
atntslng ; but oace, when politioi was
broiched, ho poured a broadside into the
Radcal party; said they were rapidly mak
ings despotism of the Government; that
the tendency was that way any how ; and
h lad scarcely a hope that even the elec
tioi of Seymour and Blair would avert an
enpire but temporarily. Such had been

Eiropean republics from Rome to the pres
' Gen. Lee was as dignified and Impressive
usual. He spoke Ireely with Dr. Banks
uion all subjects, and seemed anxious to
oovinco thai gentleman of the great atri.
ciltural resources of the State, dwelling
particularly upon Its capacities for grape
cilture. The intimacy he displavs with tlio
V!rlous varitles of grape, their qualities,
tie clashes of wines and the qualities that
nnltl be distilled from them, would do
iredit to the great French manufacturers.
In the course of the conversation Dr.
tanks mentioned something abont tho an.
icxation of Mexico, when the Gen. inquir- I
d if he had read articles in the Herald re.
ently written upon that subject by a Mr.
Cooper, aud did ho know who Mr. Cooper
was? The Dr. had heard of the articles re. j
ferred to, but was not aide to enlighten tho
General as to the antecedents of Mr. Coop,

dropped, though yonr correspondent pro.

ocratic represenUHVij of Now Jersey was
enlhusias'.io as to the certain election of
Seymour and Blair, and in stroDg terms
denounced the enormities of tho Radical
party, to which the General responded in
a quiet but forcible manner that ",f the
Democratic or (correcting himscll) the Con

The author of the following lines Is un
known, although a reward of fifty guinea
was oll'ered for bis or her discovery. They
were found on a skeleton In the Mnsotim of
the Royal College of Surgeons, Lincoln'
Inn, Loudon :
Behold this mini 'Twas a skull,
Once of ethereal spirit full;
This narrow cell was life's retreat,
This space was thought's mysterious seat,
What beauteous vision filled this spot!
What dreams of pleasure long forgot!
Nor hopo nor joy, nor lovo nor fear,
Have left one truce of record hero.
Beneath this moldering canopy
Once shown the bright and busy eye ;
But start not at the dismal void ;
If s icial love that eye employed
If with no lawless fire It gleamed,
But thro' the dew of kindness beamed j
That eye shall be forever bright,
When stars and sun are sunk In night.
Within this hollow cavern hung
The resdy, swift, and tuneful tongue ;
If falsehood's honey it disdained,
And where it could not praise wsschain M,
If bold in virtue cause it spoke,
Yet gentlo concord never broke,
This silent tongue shall plead for thee
When time unveils eternity.
Say, did those lingers delve the mine 1"
Or, without envied rubies shine t
To hew the rock or wear lhe gem
Can little now avail to them.
But tf the pagti of truth they sought,
Or commit tu the mourner brought,
These bauds a richer meed sball claim '
Tbun all who wait on wealth or fame.
Avails it not whether bare or shod,
These feet the depth of duty trod f
If Irom the ball of ease tbey fled
To seek miction' humblo shod ;
If grandeur's guilty bribe they spurned,
And home to virtue's cut returned,
These feet with angel's wings shall vlo,
And tread the palace of the sky.
