TIMHLY SUGfi HSTION.
During tho llrst sosnion of congress,
liuld at .New York In 1780, the following,
together witli len other amendments tu
Hid constitution, was submitted to tbo
states for ratillcatlon :
No law varying tho compensation tor
services ol ciiualors anil ropresoniuuves
shall taku cll'oct until an election ol the
representatives hall have Intervened.
on oiiyrng tins ainunumoni, .nr. .usu
ison remarked that under tho existing pro
vision of tho constitution with respect to
compensation ("Senators anil representa
tives kUall recctvo a compensation ior
thulr services, lo bo ascertained by law,
and paid out of tho treasury of tho I nl
ten States,") congress could ir.crcnso tbo
pay 01 muiniiors indellnlloly Uiuing tueir
inrm or service Ho did not mini:
that tho power was ono which was
likely to lio abused; but It appeared to him
mai h wouia uo well to guard mo ireas
ury at this point, by providinc that rep
ruscntntlves might voto increased com
puliation to their successors, but not to
thtmsolvoi. Congress vlowod tho mattor
in this light, nnd approvod of Mr. Madi
son's proposition by tho requiillo two
thirds vote. Hut only six oi tbo thirteen
states thon In tho union ratified llio
amendment, nnd fo It fulled to becomo
part of tho constitution
somo member of thu Ohto ir.,.u,itnr,t
became acquainted with thoso facts, and,
on .Monday last, offered u rosolutlon for
tho ratification of this ancient amendmont.
Tho resolution was rofurrod to tho judlcl-

no reason to doubt tint tho assumption is
correct. Tho t'onstltutlotikl provision
with respect to nn amenilmont, so fur as it
relates to amendments proposed bv pjii-
gross, is tin? : '. I'bo congress, whenever
two-thlrdi or both houses shall deem it
necessary, shall propose amendments to
this constitution - which shall

Now It will bo observed that while tho

iimuiiuiiierit may be proposed to tho stale,
It djes not pro vi'lo any way In which it
can be permanently disposed ol, except by

which may ba repealed or rescinded. Tho
constitution docs not oven forbid tho
states to reconsider their action or any pro
posed amendment anvtirno beforo thrco-
fourtha of them bavo ratified. Aftor that.
of course, tho matter is concludod; the
amendment Is partoftbo constitution, and
cannot bo affected by reconsideration, but
only by a now amendment; but beforo
that tho matter Is not concluded, and tho
states may reverse their action as often as
Hut it is not nece'sary to establish all

tho .Mudl'on amendment Is still before tho
country nnd rubject to ratlficactlon by tho
states. vJongress proposed that amend
ment by n joint resolution which was not
limited In respect to time, and which has
never been rescirftled, That resolution Is
as much in force to-day as any othor Joint
resolution, or any othr nct'of congress,
that has not boon rescinded or repealed.
It proposes certain amendments to "the
several stntes, not to tho states then In

it still stands as a proposal to tho several
states now in tho union. It Is not now
v w insist limine states wnuw
voted against ratlQcntiot: have now the
right to reconsider. Tho amondmont can
be ratified without their help. Tho six
states which did ratify with the twenty
four which have not yet acted aro two
more thanonough to complete tho ratifica
tion. Tho attention of tho legislature of Illi
nois Is respectfully invited to this subjoct.
Hero is an amendment which, as recent
events have proved, is much needed ; It is
one which would doubtless have been rail
tied at the tlmo it was proposed, had tho
honest peoplo of thoso days supposed that
thero wero Hen Hutlers concealed in the
womb of the future; It Is an amendment
which no congress will bo likely to pro
poso in tills advanced ago when congress
men arc different Irom what tho men of
tho revolution supposod they ever would
lo. Here are tbo most cogent reasons why
tho country should tako advantago of tho
opportunity so fortunately offered by the
old and honorablo congress cf'lTcO,
and make back-salary stoats imposslblo for
the future. Thoro Is no bolter way, por
haps no other way to accomplish the ob
ject. Thero is no belter way to rcbuko
the salary grabbers of lS7'i"than placo
thorn in strong contrast to tho honorablo
congressmen ol 1780 by taking up this,
oxcellont amendment and rotifyini: it nt
onco. It Is to bo hoped that tho Illinois
legislature, tho Ohio legislature, and nil
thu rest of tho legislatures will act as
promptly ns pofiible upon the tlmoly sug
gestion "of tho Ohio resolution. Tho
nmondrncnt was proposed to legislatures,
and not to state conventions, and thero is
nothing, therofore, to provtnt action now
by legislatures that nio in session, and
early action by othors.
