Proposed Amendment to the Constitution—
Is it Legally Before
the People as an Amendment?
. To-day, says the Ohio Statesman,
we publish a proposed amendment
to the Constitution, wiping out all
distinction between the Whites
and Blacks, and denying to all who
bore arms against the Government
in any insurrection, or who appear
on tho muster rolls as deserters,
deserters, or who are accused of
having run away to escape the
draft The Secretary of State cer
tifies that it passed on the 6th. Of
course, it was sp certified to him by
(he President of the Senate and
the Speaker of the House ot Rep
resentatives. We do not know
whether it is of consequence to in
quire into the legality of tho pas
sage of this resolution ; but it does
appear to us that it was not legal
ly passed. The resolution as it
originally passed the Senate pro
vided simply for the striking of the
word "White" out of tho Constitu
tion. The resolution was sent to
tho House, where it was amended
so as to disfranchise suclr persons
who had borne arms in any insur
rection against the Government, or
who had deserted or run away to
avoid the draft. So amended, the
resolution was sent back to tho
Senate for its concurrence. The
Senate amended the House amend
ment, by striking out that part
which seeks to disfranchise desert
ers and those who ran away to
avoid the draft. The House amend
ment, as thus amended, was agreed
to by a three fifths vote. To this
amendment of the Senate the House
would not and did not agree. Two
committees of conference followed,
each of which reported, recom
mending that the Senate should
recede from its amendment. After
the second committee of confer
ence reported recommending the
Senate to recede from its amend
ment, the Senate did recede ; but
at no time, prior or subsequent, did
the Senate take a vote on the
House amendment alone. In our
judgment, to give this proposed
amendment to the Constitution the
required legality, it was incum
bent on the Senate, after receding
from its amendment to the House
amendment, to adopt the House
amendment by a three-fifth3 vole.
The requisition of the Constitution
is absolute, too, in its demand that
a proposed amendment to the Con
stitution "shall be published in at
least one newspaper in each coun
ty of the State, where a newspaper
it published, for six months prece
ding the next election for Senators
and Representajj ves." This requi
sition can not be complied with to
the letter, la counties where no
daily papers Are published,- the J
publication will be afewdayssh'oft
of the time required. Doubtless,
this might be .considered immate
rial; but is not the question whethi
er it vas duly passed through the
Legislature a question' of 'much
Behold that "X!"
' The following, from an old friend
in New Jersey, and a subscriber
for many years, is too pointed to
be lost. After saying he enclosed

of your paper, is tho cause of my

Southern Military Law before the
Supreme Court of the U. S.
Judge btarkey Walker,
as Attornies for ,tbe State of Mis
sissippi, asked and obtained leave
to file a motion in the United States
Court, on the 5th inst:, for Jeave
to file a Bill and Injunction against
Andrew Johnson and Military Com
manders of Mississippi. Stansbcr-1
ry, Attorny General, opposes tho
motion. As wo take it from the
report bf the proceedings, the ob
ject is to stop all proceedings un
der this Militray despotisra act, and
test fairly its Constitutionality be
fore the Courts. This is all right.
The motion was set for hearing on
tho 12lhinst. The jurists of the
country will watch this case with
considerable interest, as it is one of
the most important ever brought.
[For the Record.
WILKESVILLE, O., April 4, 1867.
The election for township offic
ers at this place on the 1st inst.
passed off quietly; but consider
able interest was manifested by
both parties in the election of their
tickets. On Saturday previous,
primary elections were held by
both parties and tickets nominated.
The issue was strictly on party
principles; and the result at the
polls was entire Democratic victo
ry by an average majority of 21.
Considering the average Repub
lican majority of 14 last fall, we
have a Democratic gain since then
of 85, which we expect to retain
and increase; provided, however,
you keep your "Mud-Machine" and
Judge Craig's speeches from out
Several soldiers here, indignant
at the "loyal" party's treatment of

General Sheridan and the New Orleans
General Sheridan has not yet
sent a report to the President of
the cause that induced him to re
move Uerron, Monroe and Abell,
nor has he asked any instructions
about his action under tho. recoil
struction acts, as has been alleged
by newspaper correspondents. . '
The Secretary of War to-day laid
before the President a copy of the
correspondence between General
Sheridan and General Grant, re
spectively of the 2d and 3d inst.
General Sheridan says General
Griffin, of Texas, recommends the
deposition or removal of Governor
Throckmorton of that State, and
that he (Sheridan) agrees with Grif
fin. Sheridan thinks he will have
to remove the Governor of Louis
iana. : :!
. He further says he will com'
mence the work of registration as
soon as he receives a certified copy
of the law. Thathe(Sheridan)feols
himself equal to the task to perform
his work with credit to- the- milita
ry. General Sheridan concludes by
saying, "I shall make but few re
movals. General Grant replies that it
would not be proper to remove
Governors; that the subject is now
under consideration and it is not
believed that military commanders
have the power, and that removals
can ouly be made by an act of
Congress or by trial under the sixth
section of the law.
Twelve thousand ' five hundred
and sixty emigrants-arrived at Cas

NEWS OF THE WEEK.
A resolution was offered ia, the
Senate l4o-day"to expel Senator
Saulabury. . Mr. Saulsbury was ve
ry troublesome during the ' session
of yesterday, and, as Senator allege,
was so intoxicated as to be almost
helpless. He was notified that if
he appeared in the. Senate Cham
ber in that'eofidition to-day. a re.
solution to expel him would be in
troduced. He did appear in that
condition this afternoon, . and the
resolution was introduced. An ef
fort is made to-night, which will
probably prove successful, to have
the resolution withdrawn, and put
the Senator on a probation. , ;
Numerous expedients are report

A new counterfeit of the denom
ination of $50, ' United States cur
rency, has been detected. The en-
graving'is so nicely executed as to
challenge detection, save with an
expert. The principal 'feature by
which it may be detected is the
imperfect manner in which the but
tons on the coat of the vignette
have been executed. On the gen
uine bill they are distinct, while
on the counterfeit they can scarce
ly be seen. There is also a differ
ence in the fillagre work inside the
cipher of the figured ?50; while on
the back of the bill may be seen a
very material difference in the cir
cles inclosing the small figures 50,
It is a very dangerous counterfeit,
and would very readily pass unde
tected through, the ' hands of nine
out of ten persons. ' ' ' . ', '
