Sopposing-that the cessation of

the necessity cf these ascnt., niM

This misfortune (iV.r sueii it ) has
thrown an increased 1 u.-ine-s of
this sort upon our Stat-.' arret its ;
and in several of them their duties
of this kind are really inuwrcd
instead of being i'i'.iiini-Iic I, as vc
anticipated. The soldiers just at
home, in debt, and, many rf thim
unpaid and desperate in their feel
ings, as in their finances are
thrown into their traps and under
the devices of .1 set of sharper
ami swindlers, the likos and equals
of whom were perhaps never seen
upon the earth before; (.iod grant
they never may again. I mean
ine ciaim agents 01 ine ciicu eiiics
01 rcnuezvous. 1 Know very wen
how unjust and imprudent, as a
general truth, is all broad denun
ciation of whole clasrcs. And I
know, and take pleasure in slating,
that there are many very honora
ble exceptions to this character
among this profession of brokers.
These exceptions are all the more
honorable that they are honest and
sympathetic with the soldier, in
spite of and against the opportuni
ties and temptations which they
have to extort from the necessities
and despair of these noble patriots.
And besides this, they are in re
volt against the interests and bad
esprit du corps of their own class.
Beyond a doubt, an hov.c-l and tender-hearted
claim-agent. 111 trt be a
more honest and tender-hearted
man than one in another business
Nor need we be surprised or dis
couraged at these developments of
evil habits and characters by this
huge war. We have the best au
thority, that where the enrca s is
there the vultures will gather; and
where or when before were there
ever so many or so great carcasses
of lucre to bring out the already
bad or to tempt into badness the
good around them, as arc now and
here.
Meantime, unless Congress or
the States do something for our un
fortunate volunteers, their Isles un
der tho influence and control of
these private claim agents, arc
plain enough. Con ',"(--, whoso
sole business it is, seems to be oc
cupied with what it may con -ider
more important and grand;;1
schemes of usefulness to the world,
if not to their country. This makes
it necessary for Ohio, even under
the unjust weight of her other
loads of taxes, borne for th? gen
eral or national welfare, to see that
some plan is devised niel put
promptly into execution to remedy
these evils.
It is not to be denied, however,
that it by r.o means follows
that our soldiers have r.ot been
and may not bo largely defrauded
and robbed by other than private
agents; on the contrary, there is
much evidenceto warrant (ho fear
and shame, that in many cases most
ingenious and covert systems of
robbery have been practi.-cl by
public officers of tho general, and
perhaps State governments. If,
therefore, any legislative action
shall follow this rocommendr.linv.,
great care and wisdom ought to be
used to prevent our own agents
from committing these fraud's,
they are called into power to pre
vent. The report of the Quartermaster
General embraces a succinct ac
count of the operations of lho.mil
itary agencies during the past year.

Proposed Amendment of

Senator Kellogg, who represents
tho Ashtabula District in the Sen
ate, availed .himself of tho first
opportunity after the organization
of the Senate to introduce a pro
nosed amendment of tho Constitu
tion of the State of Ohio, so as to
allow the privilege of voting to tho
negroes who are now in Ohio, or
who may hereafter seek a residence
in it. Oluo hiaicsman.

qiie!on 'of, S suffrage ;in the
South to have an expression of
Ohio on the subject at home. Mr.
Kellogg's amendment, submitted
to the people, would be voted down
by not less than ten thousand
majority. .Unfortunately the ques
tion can not bo submitted to. the
people before October, 18G7, rather

The sagacious Senator from Cheese

October; but he ha3 not read the
