The. House of Representatives, on the 10th
- inst.. passed by a vote of 128 to 37, the t)l-
proposed. Aiucudmmcnt to the Con
stitution:,, ' v '. .

Seca 2. Rcpresentives shall be appor-
tioned among the' Several States which mav
be included within this Union according to
'f tlle respective numbers, counting the whole
number of persons in each State, excluding
Indians not taxed, but whenever in any St ate
the elective franchise shall be denied to anv

1 -t6u v11 be reduced j the proportion
which the number of such male citizens bear
to the whole number of male citizens not less
than twenty-one years of age.
Section 3, Until thu fourth day of July,
,1870, all persons who voluntarily adhered to
the late insurrection, giving it aid and com
. fort, shall be excluded from the right to vote
lor mem hers of Congress and for electors for
, President and Vice President of the United
. .. States.
; " faction 4. Neither the United, States nor
' i.any State shall assume or pay any debt or
obligation already incurred or which may
hereafter be incurred in aid of insurrection
"-r" war ngaipst the - United States, or any
'' claim fir compensation for loss of involunta-
ry service or labor.
Section 5. The Congress shall have power
to enforce by appropriate legislation the pro
visions of this article.
Mr. Raymond, of New York, voted in the
affirmative, and much applause.
The amendment now goes to the Senate,
and the impression seems' to be that the pro-
Eosed amendment will pass that body, as it
as passed the House, by a two-thirds vote:
It will then require the ratification of the
Legislatures of three-fourths of the States.
Mr. Banks, of Massachusetts, stated in the
House on the 10th, that the. amendment
would be ratified by twenty-five States now
represented in Congress, and Tennessee and
Arkansas, which had already passed enact
ments of a similar character, would make up
the twenty-seven necessary for the ratifica
tion of the' amendment.

"Washington, May 11. The House was not
in session to-day.
Senate. The Senate discussed during the
morning hour the House Joint Resolution to
prevent the introduction of cholera into the
Tiie Senate then resumed the consideration
of the postofiice Appropriation bill ; but the
debate was, however, on the subject of recon
struction. Mr. Howard, of Michigan, spoke two hours
to show that Congress is right and the Presi
dent wrong with regard to the Southern
Mr. Cowan, of Pennsylvania, replied, lus
argument being to the point that those who
interposed to prevent the Southern States
from being represented were disuniouists,
and that their opposiotion to restoration was
superinduced by a fear on the part of theul
tras of loosing power.
The Senate passed the bill, after striking
out the amendment which they heretofore
adopted preventing parties appointed to of
fice durinu the recess from receiving pay un
til confirmed by the Senate.
The Senate then adjourned till Monday.
Jefferson Davis I j lifted His trial will probably
rommeure in Ric'irasad in Jane.
Bat.timoise. May 11. Yesterday Jefferson
Davis wa3indicte-d for treason against the
United State3 by the grand jury in session at
Norfolk. The trial of the prisoner it 13 sup
posed will take place in Juue. .
Dr. Bigelow, of Alexandria, one of the
members of the grand jury, who reached
Baltimore this morning, says the statement
that M; J. G-illinghain, the foreium of the
grand jury, declined serving as a member of
that body upon hearing tiie opening charge
of Judge Underwood, is incorrect, jlr. Oil
lingham had never served on a jury before,
and simply requested to be excused from
serving as foreman, stiting as his reason th it
he was afraid he was not competent to till
that position. He made no objection what
ever to serving sis a member of the jury.
Norfolk, May 11. Late yesterday after
noon the grand jury of the United States
Court, in session here, brought in a true
bill of indictment against Jeif. Davis 'for
treason, and adjourned until the first Tues
day in June, to meet in Richmond,
Norfolk, iMay 11. The grand jury,
which met here on Tuesday last, has adjour- .
ncd until the first Tuesday in June. Yes- !
terday afternoon a true bill of indictment
against Jeff. Davis and John C. Breckinridge j
for treason against the United States, was 1
brought in and agreed upon, after which the j
jury adjourned. "The jury was composed of j
twenty-four men, all Virginians, and Union
ists. There was a remarkable unanimity
among them on all the important question
to which their attention was directed. Many
of them had suffered in their persons and
property at the hands of the rebel leaders,
and five of them were, I am informed, con
signed to Castle Thunder during the rebellion
for their refusal to swear allegiance to the
rebei government. These men are all " radi
cals," who believe that "'treason is a crime
and ought to be punished." The testimony
brought before them, and on which they
based their bill of indictment, was over-whelming-'against
Davis and Breckinridge,
but especially Davis. What is perhaps most
remarkable'about it is the fact that it was
recei e I pr'n i ally from witne b:s, who had
served either in the civil or military service
of the rebellion. The evidence against Davis
was very direct and positive, and suprised
even the jurors. .
We mate the following extract from the
charge of Judge Underwood to the Grand
" The omission of the last grand jury to
find indictments against those-who may be
considered the principal criminals and great
est offenders against the national sovereignty,
who were, in fact, the most prominent in po
sition at the time they deserted their places
- in the Senate of the "United States, and be
came leaders of the rebellion, has been mis
understood, and the President ha informed
the Court that he is umcitling to adpiie pro
ceedings against such si'li rdi 'nates as Wirz,
while their superiors and more guilty lenders
are not brought to justice. This Court entire
ly agrees with the President in his often re
peated declaration, that treason i9 the great
est of crimes and ought to be signally pun
ished, and that it is cowardly to punish the
subordinate and comparatively insignificant,
and allow the principals to escape. We also
concur in the opinion that the leaders in the
late rebellion may be treated either -as trai
tors or public enemies, as they were undoubt
edly both by the laws of nations."
Good for the President !

effects of the civil rights bilL The Tennes

The laws now in force expressly Jbrbid such

We are fullv iustilied in stating that wo now

authorize us to state that without distinction of

ALL THE PRODUCTS OF THEIR FACTORY
ARE FULLY WARRANTED
to be the b.-st timc-kecpers of their class ever
made in this or any other country. Buyers should
remember that unlike the guarantee of a foreign
maker who can never be reached, this warr nteo
is good at all times against the Company or tlieii
agents, and that if alter the most thorough trial,
any watch should prove defective in any particu
lar, it may always be exchanged for another. As
the American Watches made at Waltham, are for
sale by dealers generally throughout the country,
we do not solicit orders for single watches.
CAUTION. The public are cautioned to buy
only of respectable dealers. All persons selling
counterfeits will be prosecuted.
