THE BNIYEUSAI, SUFFRAGE lXlOP
OSITION. Thoro is a -very earnest movement
among tho Radicals of the North in favor
of so amending tho constitution of the
United KL-itriS as tn nsf.iMieVi
K ! Suffrage in all the States. This morc-
V . i : - 1 1 . 1 1C r ,t r
mem. is iuauu m ucuaii oi mo icw negroes
in the North who arc excluded from tho
ballot-box. Repealed efforts havo been
mado to havo tho right of suffrago ex
tended to tho negroes in thoso State?,
but tho white people, Republicans as
well as Democrats, havo shown an un
willingness to make tho negro their polit
ical equal in States whero their votes
could exert but litllo influence eithei
way. The Radical leaders havo deter
mined to tako a short cut in hav
ing mis worn uono by tho m-
terferonco of Congress. That body pre
scribed negro suffrago for tc.t Southern
States, and if it was competent to do
that for theso Stales, why not for tho
Northern States? But the Radicals do
not propose to do this work in so looso a
manner as they did when legislating for
the South. Their purpose now is for
Congress to pass an act proposing an
amendment to the constitution establish
ing universal suffrago in all tho States,
anl that this amendment' shall bo sub-
mlUed-to-tho BtatoXogttilaturM ferratifl-
cation. Should three-fourths of tho Lcgis
latutes ratify the amendment, as it is
confidently asserted they will, negro sul
rago would then bo established in tho
Southern States by something moro than
the uncertain tenure of a meroactof Con
gross. Tho Baltimoro American (Radi
cal) says "No Stato shall deny tho right
of suffrage on account of raco or color,"
is understood to bo the precise wording
of tho proposed amendment, and that it
will probably be offered -on tho fiist day
of the re assembling of the fortieth Con
gross next month, and tho American
"The expectation is that it will, beforo
tho middle of January, bo passed bv a
two-thirds vote of Congress, sent to tho
Stato Legislatures then in session for
ratilication. and that ay tho -1th of .March.
1SG9 the day of tho inauguration of
ocn. brant it win uo part and parcel
oi the constitution oi uic united States.
It thus appears that it i3 tho purpose)
of tho Radicals to have suffrage a frco
thing to every man when Qen. Grant
shall assume the reins of government
They control a sufficient number of tho
Slato Legislatures to securo tho ratifica
tion of tho amendment, and there is
scarcely a doubt that it will be promptly
ratified if proposed by Conjrress. Tho
Chicago platform declares that tho
question of suffrago should "bo left to
the Stales." But a way is pointed out
by which this stumbling block can be
got out of the way, and that is for tho
States to confer this light upon the gen
erai government by a constitutional
amendment. Congress will probablyask
that this be done, and there is scarcely a
doubt that tho Legislatures will comply,
The question then suggests itself as to
what will bo the bearing of tho proposed
amendment upon West Virginia, Tonnes
sec and Missouri. Of courso it will strike
down tho iniquitous disfrar.-liismi?nt
which has excluded from tho polls a verv
large luajonty of tho whito men of theso
States. In proposing tho contemplated
amendment, Congress would of courso gi
no further in tho work of disfran
chising than that body did in the
reconstruction acts. That would not
exclude from tho polls fivo hundred
whito citizens of Tennessee. If the
amendment should go even this far, it
would change tho whole aspect of affairs
in this State. It is scarcelv necessary to
say that tho Radical leaders here, know
ing that their tenure of offieo depends
upon sustaining tho present sweeping
disfranchisement, will violently oppose
this universal suffraco proposition. But
tho thing is drifting rapidly in that dircc
tiori, and it is wonderful that our legis
latorsJo not seo that events must culmi
nato iu the adoption of universal suffrage
throughout the States, and that such a
measure will emancipate Tennessee. It
is a Radical movement, and wo report its
progressive stages to shov our legisla
tive Solons that their oxclusiveness does
not meet tho approbation of their
own party in other portions of the coun
try. Tho Washington Chronicle makes
this emphatic declaration :
"Regarding suffrago as tho exponent
and pledge of each man's right to self
government, wo consider it indispen
ablo to that liberty which all Americans
aro supposed to believe to bo an inalicn
sable right Its establishment has there
fore seemed to us necessary to tho full
vindication of tho very fundamental
theory of our governmont"
This is the spirit in which Tennessee
Radical disfranchisement is met by men
who aio actuated by any regard for tho
peace of tho country. It cannot be justi
fied by even Northern Radicals, and they
aro willing to seo it swept from existenco
by an amendment of tho constitution of
J ho United States. While thrso oceur
iciices aro taking place in the North, wo
Reo no signs of softening on the part of

CONGKEHS TO CONTIKl'E TO KE
Tho theory of the Constitution is. that
there shall bo three co-ordinate depart
ments in the government, co-equal in their
assigned spheres, to tho proscribed degree
independent of each other, and each to
check, balanco, and correct attempted
encroachments and aberations from tho
constitutional lino by ono or both of the
others. This is ono nf !.
features of tho American system, and
tho most admirable. Practically, within
tho past thrco years, Radicalism has
abolished this feature. Itjias mado Con
gress supremo over the President and tho
Supremo Court. All through tho recent
campaign, it was openly argued that tho
troubles of tho country wcro traceable to
the attempt of President Johnson to
assert tho Executive perogatives against
thb dictation of that body, and that Gcd.
Grant should bo elected in order that a
concordance between Congress and tho
Executive could bo maintained. Tho
Radical doctrino is that Congress is
directly representative of tho will of tho
pooplo and its measures must bo tho
supremo law; without let or hindranco
from any authority.
It so happens however, that in tho
elections to tho next Congress that party
has had its strength in tho IIouso of
Representatives, reduced below a two
thirds majority, and such a number i3
necessarr to that absolute domination in
the government which it seeks to retain,
With this fact in mind, and tho further
facte, that Grant's position is dubious,
arid ho as incrutablc as tho SphynS, the
astuto leaders have commenced to grow
uneasy about' Congressional almightincss
for tho next fourycars. Thoy preceivo
it is quite possible that Grant may John'
sonizo or Tylerize, and that a veto, with
out two-thirds in tho Senato and IIouso
of Representatives, might seriously crip-
plo their power, and baulk some mcdi
tated schemes. Ilcnco thoy aro devis
ing measures to givo Grant to understand
that ho is to go into tho Presidency with
tho kvvcs on his limbs, and that if ho
dares to contest tho will of the "loyal"
millions, and thwart anything they, tho
loaders, may chooso to call ono of the
results of tho great conflict, that two
thirds of both houses of Congress will bo
more than a match for him. If posiblo
they intend to havo harmony between the
President and Congress,by giving the Rad
icals of the latter body the power to mak.o
him do as thay please. As we said :
few days after tho election, every closely
contested scat will ho put through tho
mill of the House Committco on Elec
tions, and a reliable Radical will be
ground out and given the scat They
intend to havo the requisite two-thirds
to nullify any veto of Gen. Grant. Tho
Now York World of tho 16th inst. de
velops the onenins inanojvu'.rs in this
game, and says :
The latest phase of tho little gamo is
to keep the two-thirds. As matters now
stand the Radicals are somo ten or twelve
short of a two-thirds in the forty-first'
Congress. To uo away with this over
plus of Democrats and thereby put tho
ring in Grant's nose, should the General
prove restive, is a prime object, and this
is the way they mean to do it Im
primis, the word has gono out lrom
Washington and waked into galvanic
lifo a certain select decoction, Uto
in number, of that learned body that,
from the antecedents of its mem
bership, was known as tho Mississippi.
Cham-gang Convention. 1 his decoction
styled committee, has all of a sudden dis
covered that tho negro constitution was
not, after all, defeated in Mississippi by
7,029 votes, as ofliciaity reported by the
district commander, but seven strong
anti-constitution counties being thrown
out was carried. Wherefore tho said
quintriple crew, in a rescript dated the
third of this month, announco that tho
affair has been "duly ratified and adopt
ed," and divirs carpet-bap; and negro
gentry elected as State ofiiiers and to
Congress These latter resurrections be
ing five (5) in number, it follows that, on
tho adoption of this manifesto by Con
gress, as it will bo adopted, tho trooly
loii will add at ono fell blow fivo brand
new carpot-bag votes to their depleted
ranks. Further than this, it has been
ascertained, as a Washington special
to tho Post is good enough to tell us, that
thero was such "Rebel terrorism" in Lou
isiana as kept the ioil negroes, who mado
bread and meat for the Confedcrato ar
mies when they could not have been
forced so to do, from the poll-;. This
means, of coure, that a sufficient number
sf affidavits at $ a-pieco have b.-cn
prepared to make a good basis for casting
out tho five Louisiana Democratic Congressmen-elect,,
whereby it but romains
for tho Ioil to oust two, or. at most, three
moro Democrats to cet their two-thirds.
This is soon done, as it is now being "as
certained" that in Georgia thero was also
a terrorism which lost tho State to Grant.
This done, out tro seven Georgia Demo
crats, and voila! tho two-thirds. Then let
Lot-us -have-peaco wag his head Johnson
izingly at us if ! o daro, and we, unto
whom is siven tho fulness of the earth.
not forgetting tho two-thirds, will show
him on which sido of the hedge shines
the sun. What'a little gamo it is, to be
Just six hundred and fifty years ago
last August, on the little island-aicadow
in the river Thames, known as Runny
medo, the friends of freedom in England
met King John, and wrested from him
tho British rights of Magna Charts, con
taining these word:
"No man 6hnll boarrcsted, imprisoned,
or deprived of his own frco housohold, or
of his liberties, or of his own free cus
toms, or outlawed or banished, or injured
in any manner; nor will wc pass sentence
upon him, nor scud trial upon him, unless
by tho legal judgment of his peers, or ly
the law of the land"."
This germ of civ. 1 liberty was defended
in England by two hundred and fifty
years of war, and ratified by many acts
of Parliament, aud no King w Parlia
ment of England would dare to restrict
the privilege of the habeas corpus
which was engrafted in sur constitution.
Somo six years bofurc tiio Federal con
stitution was adopted, a remarkable
prophecy was uttered under tho follow
ing related circumstances :
"In 17S0 Ilenry Laurens, former Pre
sident of tho Continental Congress, was
sent as Minister to Holland. On his way
ho was captured and imprisoned in tho
Tower of London for fourteen months.
When Lord Shclburno became Premier,
Laurcna was brought up on habeas cor
pus and released. After his release, ho
dined with .Lord bhelburno. when the
conversation turned on tho separation of
tho two countries. Lord Sheluurnc re
marked : 'I am Forrv for vour people.'
Why so?' asKed Laurens. 'They will
lose tho habeas corpus,' was tho re
ply. 'Lose tho habeas corpus,?' said
Laurens in astonishment. 'Yes,' said
Lord Shclburno ; 'we purchased it with
centuries of wrangling, many years of
fighting, and had it confirmed by at leas
fitly acts 01 Parliament. All tins taught
tho nation it; value; and it is so in
graiuid into their creed as tho very four;
elation of liberty, that no man or party
win over uare to trample on it iour
peoplrf will pick it up and attempt to use
it; but, having cost them nothing, they
will not Unow how to appreciate it At
tho first great internal feud you have,
the majority will trample upon it, and
tho people will permit it to bo done, and
so will go your liberty.' "
When a people, without even a' protest,
seo wholo States disfranchised in time of
peaco, says the New York Express, tho
ballot taken from hundreds of thousands
of intelligent white men and given to
hundreds of thousands of negroes, when
suffrago and majorities aro wrested by
military force and Radical usurpation
from whole States, as in West Virginia,
North .and South Carolina, Alabama,
Arkansas and. Florida, and, as, from
1SGA to 1SC9, when thero is a quiet ac
quicscncc in tho mode and result of such
transactions, the prophecy mado to
Laurens, eighty, eight years sinco, has
simply becomo history. Tho United
States constitution, in its guarantees of
personal liberty, was founded upon tho
Magna Charta of our British ancestors,
and we havo seen it trampled under foot
more times than tho years which havo
passed since 1780. It is both our fault
and our misfortuno that this has been
done, that a fragmentary Congress has
mastered the Federal Executive, upset
the Federal Judiciary, and often impris
oned without a trial, tried without a jury,
condemned without a hearing, and pun
ished without reason or justice.
A CAVSU CELEBRIS.
On last Saturday Judge Clifford, of
tho United Stales Supremo Court, dc"
cided at Boston, ono of the most inter
esting lawsuits of tho age tho Howland
will case which was first mentioned in
tho press about a year since.
Miss Sylvia Ann Howland, of New-
Bedford, died in 1805, leaving property
valued at about $2,200,000, and a will
in which sho bequeathed half of it to her
niece, Miss Hetty "Robinson (now Mrs.
Edward H. Green), and tho other half to
various friends, servants, and public
charities. Miss Robinson thereupon
produced an earlier will, under which
sho would havo obtained tho wholo cs
tato, and demanded that tho latter one
should bo set aside, on tho ground that
it was in violation of a contract entered
into between herself and her aunt
this contract, Miss Howland
Miss Robinson, it was averred,
made a mutual agreement
touching their respectivo wills, the
aunt to lcavo all her property to the
niece, and the niece all her own (amount
ing to several hundred thousand dollars)
to her heirs, or failing heirs, to public
charities. Tim object of this bargain
was to keep all the money of both ladies
out of tho hands of Miss Robinson's
father. Tho suit was brought in tho
form of a complaint by Miss Robinson
against tho residuary legatees ; and tho
answer of tho respondents wa?, first,
that no such contract as sho alleged had
ever been made : and secondly, that a
material part of the will which sho pro
duced was a forgery.
It was upon this second point that tho
principal interest of tho trial depended,
tho argument of tho respondents being
not that the signatuic to the page of tho
will in question was unliko Miss How-
land's, but that it was too marvellously
like tho signaturo to tho other pago to have
been produced in any other way than
forgery by tracing. The evidenco on this
question was exhaustive. Tho signa
tures wcro indeed shown to bo precisely
alike, and not only wcro all tho best
known experts examined as to tho un-
prccedentedncss of such a resemblance,
but a most interesting exposition of tho
theory of probabilities was obtained from
a distinguished mathematician a raro
instance of tho application of tho higher
mathematics to tho proceedings of courts
of law. Trof. Pierce of Cambridge, whoso
testimony was heard by the court, arerrcd
that ho had conclusively demonstrated by
the differential calculus, that it was not
probable that in many millions of times
tho sisnature of an individnal will bo
precisely tho same.
The court has taken a year to deter
mine tho case, and now decides that
there was no contract such as Miss
Robinson avers, and her complaint con-
s qucntly falls to the gtound, forgery or
no forgery. Tho second part of tho re-
pondents' answer is consequently passed
over, and tho genuineness of the dis
puted document is left unsettled. The
failure todecido whether tho will adduced
by Miss Robinson was a forscry, ia
a disappointment to thoso who had
watched tho progress ol tho case, as
it would havo determined one of tho most
curious and interesting points of evi
denco over presented in American juris
