The Eaton Weekly Democrat
EDITED BY A COMMITTEE.
Baton,
Thursday, April 14, 1870.
The "Hen" Convention.
We understand the. dii8siLi:ticd
"lien8"oF our place held n'notlior
meeting in Minor's Hall on Sat-
urdny last. Curiosity induced a
good many to turn out and bear
the '"cacklim,'' and a few weak
er onee were lullubied into the
society. One book her beauti
ful curls at tlie Democrat for its
Kottca or thei" laet meeting.
W ell, if we tee green thivgs thro'
our bright spectacles, we can't
l!r it. We heard of several
mishape to the broods if iome
of the "hens'5 who had abandon
ed them to fate arl ile they offed
1Uhe meeting to advocate their
Rights!
It is a melancholy truth, and
still we need not weep oyer it
that the most holy things are
sctnetiruoe handled by the most
ignorant hands; and wicked per
sous often, clothe their nefarious
designs in the beautiful robes of
philanthropy and religion. So
it is, we believe, in the present
instance; for although it would,
perhaps, be unjust to charge
these frieuds of Woman's Bights
with premeditated evil, yet the
strictest scrutiny will clearly
prove them all to be brain sick
fanatics; impracticable, discon
tented and unhappy spirit?, who
imagine that hecaose they are
dissatisfied or disgusted with the
order of nature everybody alee
should be, and assist them in
waging war with the decrees of
heaven! It is true that women
have not, as a sex, exercised or
enjoyed the same political privi
leges aa her more athletic com
panion, but beforo they advance
too far, we would say, fair daugh
ters, beware! The experience of
your very respeetable grandma
ther Eve, admonishes you to re
fleet before yon act; a precao
tion wtUcb, by the way, we
would modestly bint, yoa occa
sionly overlook' She lost Para
dise by regaling herself with a
single apple, from a tree in her
own garden, and we are some
times disposed to abide her rash
ness; but if she had let Eden a
lone altogether, and songbt fruit
in a strange orchard, hovv much
more Would she have deserved
oar censure? Experience teaoh
ea a dear school, and it is often
better to take some things for
granted tbaa to prove their
truth by a practical darnotistraH
tion. We should rather believe
there waa a lion in the way,
thau treve it infallibly by stir
ring him in Ins lair. Therefore,.
without disexiadlng yon from tn
tering the political fields, from
which, you have heretofore been
excluded by the masculine hedge
of he, his, and him, we beg you
to possess yourselves of the best
guides, and obtain the most re
liable information before you
cohrmenee your exploration.

THE VILLAINY

aMS BJVsiM
CONSUMMATED!
Tbe following documents from
Grant and the Secretary of State
will explain themselves. As we
have often said before, we are
not so much opposed to niggers
voting as to the manner by which
the privilege haB been obtained.
We pronounce Grant and Fish
political tricksters, who are en
deavoring to subvert the institu
tions of the country, and steal
the liberties from the people
through deception and trickery
The result predicted by' the De
mocracy when Grant was elected
has been accomplished through
a most villainous system of fraud,
bribery, force and corruption,
and every pledge made to the
people by the leaders of the Rad
leal party has been falsified.
The amendment has nor beat
adopted according to tbe require
ments of the Constitution, and
Grant sanctions the fraud by a
message which is as false in sen
timent as it Is villainous in de
sign. New York did not assent
to tbe amendment the assent of
Ohio and Iudiana was obtained
through .fraud and violence to
the laws of the States and the
Constitution of the United
States, and we warn the leaders
of the Radical party, that their
works will return to torment and
punish them! We do not care
so much aoout the tew negro
votes in the North it is the
means by which, they are secured
to which we bitterly object, and
we here say to the niggers who
are cutting such fantastic pranks
over the fraudulent ratification
of the amendment, that no Con
gressional enactment, nor any
Presidential ukase, nor villain
ous Jt'rocjanialion trom any
source or power, can make them
any thing out negroes, and they
will be , despised or reipected ac
cording to their conduct; aud not
because they have.the privilege!

President's Message.
To. the Senate and House of
Representatives:
. eesxHl htiM iii':tjtTjJui jln,
-lt is unusual to notify the two
houses or Congress by message
of the promulgation, by procla
mation by the Secretary of State
of the ratification of a Constitu
tional Amendment. In view,
however, of the vast importance
of the Fifteenth Amendment of
the Constitution, this day declar
ed a part ol that revered instru
ment, I deem a departure from
the usual custom, justifiable. A
measure which makes at once
four millions people voters, who
were heretofore declared by the
highest tribunal iu the land, not
citizen of the United States, nor
eligible to beccme 80 with the
assertion that at the time of the
Declaration of Independence the
opinion was fixed and universal
in the civilized portion of the
white race, and regarded as an
axiom in morals as well as poli
tics, that, black men had no
rights which white men were
bound to respect, is iudeed a
measure of grander importance
than any other act of the kind
trom the formation ot our free
Government to tbe present time.
Institutions tike ours, in which
ail the power is derived directly
from the people, must depend
mainly upon their intelligence.
patriotism and industry. I call
the attention, tnererore, or me
newlv enfranchised race to the
importance of their striving in
every honorable manner to make
themselves wormy oi neir new
privilege. To tbe raoe more fas
vored heretoiore Dy our laws, x
would say, withhold no legal
privilege of advancement to the
new citizens. "The framers of
our Constitution firmly believed
that a republican form of gov
ernment conld not endure with
out intelligence and education
generally diffused among the
neoole. The Father of his coun
try, in his farewell address, used
this language: "Promote then,
as a matter of primary import
ance, institutions for the general
.
w ledge. In pro-
portion as the structure ot the
Government gives force to pub
lic opinion, it is essential that
public opinion should be enliglit
ened."
In his first annual message to
Congress the same views wert
forcibly presented, and are again
urged in his eighth message. I
repeat that the adoption of the
Fifteenth Amendment to the
Constitution completes the grea
test civil change and constitutet
the most important event that
has occurred since the nation
came into lije. , The change will
be beneficial in proportion to the
heed that is given to the urgent
recommendations of Washing
ton.
It'thesa recommendations were
important then, wiih a popula
tion ot but a few millions, how
moch more important now with
a population of forty millions,
and increasing in a rapid ratio.
I would, therefore, call upon
Congress to take alt means with
in their constitutional power to
promote and encourage popular
education throughout the coan
try. end upon the people every
where to see to it that all who
possess and exercise political
rights shall have opportunity to
acquire knowledge which will
make their share in tbe Govern
ment a blessing aud not a dan
ger. By such means ouly can
the benefits contemplated by the
amendment to the Constitution
be secured.

THE PROCLAMATION.
To all to whom these presents

three-fourths of said Legisla
tures, that shall be- valid as part
of the Constitution, namely:
Article A V , Section i. The
rights of citizens of the United
States to. vote shall not be dent-
led or abridged by the United
States or any State on account
of race, color or previous condi
tion of servitude."
'Sec. 2. Congress shall have
power to enforce this article by
appropriate legislation."
Ana further, that it appears

And further, that the Statfs
whose Legislatures have so rati

Further, that it appears from

passed resolutions claiming to
withdraw said ratification of said

made by tbe Legislature of that
State, and of which official no
tice had been filed iu this Depart
ment; aud further, that it ap
pears from an official document
On file in this Department that
tbe Legislature of Georgia has,
by resolution, ratified said pro
posed amendment.
Now, therefore, be it known
that I, Hamilton Fish, Secretary
of State of the United States, by
virture and iu pursuance of the
second section of an act of Con
gress approved the 20th day of
April, in tbe year 1818, entitled
"An act to provide for the publi
cation ef ttraiaws of 1he Uuited
States and for other purposes,"
do hereby certify that the a
mendment aforesaid has become
valid, and to all intents and pur
poses, as a part of the Constitu
tion of the United States.
In testimony whereof I have
hereunto set my band and caus
ed the seal of the Department of
State to be affixed
Done at the City of Washington,
