Impartial Suffrage in Ohio.
We commend the following able ar
ticle iu favor of Impartial Suffrage in
this State, to the careful consideration
of oar reader?. We copy it from that
excellent journal, the Sandusky Register:
There is now before the Legislature
of Ohio a resolution, introduced by
Representative Boynton from Lorain,
proposing an amendment to the Con
stitution - of thia State, the effect of
which, if ratified by the people, will be
to strike the word white from the or
ganic law of the State and thus place
the ballot ia tbe hand of every citizen
ithout regard to his religion, nationali
ty or .color. This resolution has our
most emphatic approval, and we call
upon our legislators, of both parties, to
adopt the measure at an early day and
give, the people of our great State an
opport unity to do an act of tardy justice
and make a record of their own advance
ment and growth. We have not .here
tofore been disposed to nrge legislative
action regarding this needed reform be
cause we have' not believed that the
public mind was ready for the step, and
we thought H not wise to incur the dan
ger of a possible defeat, with its attend
ant evil when, with a little delay,, the
reform was sttre of accomplishment ,
.' For. the p.tst si years, time nd the
logic of events have been doing more
for tbe cause of impartial bunrage, in
this and . every other State, than could
have been done by a legion of newspa
pers assisted by forty legislatures, l tie
rude argument of war and the convinc
ing point of the bayonet have effected
in a score of months what the eloquence
of the orator and the appeals of the phil
anthropist could not have accomplished
in a score of years. Thus, while it ha
almost seemed that the stars in their
courses were fighting for the Equal
Rights of Men we have not been doubt'
fnl or impatient regarding the result
But wa now believe that the battle is
over in Ohio at lea.t, and that nothing
remains but to gather the fruits of vie
torv. ' ' - -
We believe that the people of Ohio,
who stood by the republic with unwav
ering loyalty through the dark days of
war, who hailed with enthusiastic glad
ness and approved with singular uuani
mity the emancipation of all slaves, who
buried home treason, in the form of Mr.
Vallandigham, beneath an avalanche of
one hundred thousand votes, and who
are still proud to be found in tho front
rank of real progress and sensible reform,
are : now. ready to throw aside, an out
worn, prejudice, . a .relic of the day of
slavery, and put the ballot, the freeman's
badge, in . the band of every citizen of
The prejudice against the negro was
the natural outgrowth of slavery, could
not have existed without it, and must
die with it. , It is simply impossible for
such an illogical, unreasoning and ntter-
ly defenceless sentiment, to longer with
stand the spirit of the age. . 1
iue case, uneny siaieu, is una; e
have in Ohio about'43,000 colored peo
ple, of whom, perhaps, 6,300 are adult
males, or persons who would become vo
ters by the proposed change in the
Constitution of the State.' There is not
a doubt that tbe average of intelliffeucij
and morality among these 8,500 colored
men is quite as Ligb as among tbe same
number of white men engaged in the
same occupations.' luese people are
taxed by tbe State and National govern
ments, and are required and expected
to obey all the laws tf the land. They
are liable to draft in time of war. and
are forced to "work upon the public
highways, and yet, by the term of our
present Constitution, formed at a time
when tho shadow of slavery darkened
even the Western Reserve, they are de
nied that first an I distinguished privi
lege of the American citizen the privi
lege of having a voice in the formation of
the law which shall govern , bihi.
These eoloreil men are taxed without rep
resentation, ami are toretd to shoulder
the musket, to fight and die ia the arngd
defense of a Male ictich declares by m
fundamental law that they are not worthy
to enjoy tts citizenshw. Are we not
right in saying that Ohio is prepared to
wipe out this great disgrace ! Are not
the men who are lit to be the tax-ayers
ami the soldiers of tbe republic, tit also
to be the voter of the republic i In the
war for the Union 5,092 black meii en
tered the federal' army from Ohio and
marched to the front a number, w hen
compared" with the whole colored popu
lation of tho State, which should put to
the blush every atay-at-home opponent
of impartial sunrage in the land, fivery
citizen of Qhio who, during tbe war,
consented to have a black man enter
the army is hi stead, disgraced himself
in so doing if Ire did not at the same
time consent to bis enfranchisement on
hi return from the wars.
Then, a a matter of simple and ab
stract justice, a a fitting return for hon
orable military service, as a tardy con
cession to the spirit of the age, as a final
overthrow of Slavery and Caste in our
8tate, as ar( qbvious and imperative
Christian duty, we demand Impartial
Suffrage for Ohio.
The Snake and the Rock.
' In a recent Speech Hon, John Went-
worth of Chicago, used the following
illustration of the question relative to enr
treatment of the rebellious States :
A travelei was one day accosted by
a snake from under a rock, asking to be
let out The traveler at first was afraid
of the consequences; and told the snake
that he was .tiraid he would bite him
he was let out Ihe snake asserted
that he had been under the rorks long
lime; that he regretted his natural pro
pensities and was resolved hereafter to
ettectually control them. Alter tnutsli
parleying the traveler coip passionately
removed the rock aud ho and the suake
traveled along some distauce agreeably
together. Finally the snake said he fell
like biting somebody ; that be might not
bite the traveler, but his venomous pro
pensities' had returned With such
strength that he could not much longer
control himself. Ho contended that
the promise he had made was made
under duress; that God had made him
for a snake: that he had no other func
tions fr perform than those of a snako.
Tbe traveler entreated him to control
himself and reminded him of his orig
inal promise. The matter was finally
compromised by agreeing to leave the
question in disputu between them to the
first throe animal thev met. The first
araa t Via wr it" Ma lAniitpl thflt the
snake was reared to his original
and that hit proniiso made while under
duress was not binding. The next ani-io.i'l,ir'ii:.t.j';-;illjVol,U'irw.)
peace among all animals.' The third
animal met was the fox,' Before lie
could give his opinion he wanted to
survey the original premises.'" Upon
reaching them be asked the snake to
lay down in exactly the position he was
in when the traveler found him. He
then asked the traveler to place the
rock as it originally was. This being
done, he said :. 'TJiis, case requirta
great deliberation w e must take time
to consider it - -And so he and the
traveler passed on. ....:.
iNow tbe serpent of rebellion having
been foolishly liberated from the pros
trate situation under the. great rock
which Northern patriotism rolled upon
it to crush it, withont having first been
disarmed of its venom, coolly propose
to use its fangs upon the hand- which
magnanimously gave it freedom. 1 tier
seems to be no alternative left but; to
replace the lifted rock, unless the snaky
enemy, whom we cannot trust,, will
quietly submit to have it poison fangs
drawn out. That .done, it may, wriggle
where it will. , ,ue..-,, r. r,.J.

"Thy Neighbor as Thyself."
. . Mr. Beecher, in a recent sermou on
the training of the .conscience, said:
"Not long ago a gentleman who was in
the oil business bad made some twelve
pr fifteen thousand dollars, and he con
cluded that he had made enough ex
traordinary a it may seem and that
he would wind up his affairs and come
home. " Well, he wound up his affairs
and was on tbe point of leaving-, when
ke met with a young man of his acquain
tance (I believe they both reside in New
York) who had invested $8,000, all he
had, in the experimental well, and had
been: boring and boring until he bad
given out in discouragement And
coming to this man, he. said: .. "I shall
lose SOOO if I am obliged to give up
my interest in that wel" and begged
him to take it off his hands. I am sell
ing but and not taking on," says the man.
But the young man plead with him, and
out of personal kind nests he said, "Very
welL I will take it" " Iu two days they
struck a vein in this well, and he sold hits
share for $200,000." The young man
was present as tho check was drawn on
New York for tha amount, and he felt
tike, death and mourned and said, "It is
always my luck ; lam always a little too
late.- ' And the man said, 'You may
take $20,000 of it if yon want." '- The
young man thought be was jesting; but
he .assured him that he was not, aud
aaid, "but I .will make it 30,000 if it
wiil do vou any good. Or," said he,
'I will make it $50,000. Well, said
he, "take the whole of it; I do not want
it- Give me the 6,000 and you mav
have the advantage of the :vA I.
And so he gave the young iUuu "ritnv
000, " All of you that would have done
that may rise up." It is sea rely neces
sary to say that nobody rose to vote.
Habits are forming like masonry
Every thought seems smait, as evcrv
brick seems smalL And yet, l notice,
in tbe building that U going up. behind
my dwelling, that, small as bricks are,
oue by one, being set in mortar day by
day, and man by man, the waif thicken
and rises, and solidifies, and the hugt
structure is piled up at , last Taken
ingly, these bits of burnt clay are of no
great significance; but all of them to-'
gether are of tremendous significance.
Now, a man's life is made up of Kttlo
thought any one of which are-Iika
brivka in tbe .hands, of the builder. The
wall of your character are going np
day by day. And you are building, not
lone for time, but for eternity. And
you have more interest in that building
than anybody else has. The effect of
those habits and disposition that yon
are forming do you know that you will
never i rid of it to all eternity j There
is not a day that does not use its trowel ;
There h not a day that doe not carry
up somewhere in you a wall that never
will be. shaken down. As you build, so
you -will ttand. vIathat course in which
