express tho hope that the publUhlug of them
here may caurie the reader to examine Into
their correctness or error In the spirit of in
telligent Americans, determined, come what
may, to presort e from discord and disturb
ance the fair fame of tho capital of tho na
tlon, and their selected homes from the acts
of thoao who would attempt to violate law to
sccuro their own ideas of,right?
Lot us oxumlne for a moment our position
as citizens of the United States, and our pe
culiar ttutus politically as Inhabitants of the
District of Columbia Tho Constitution of
the Unitod States, art , sec , says
11 Congress shall have exclusive Jurisdiction
over the District of Columbia, and shall
innke nil needful rules and regulations "
This " higher law ' was adopted before there
there was a citizen of Washington
It we accept tho self evident proposition
that nearly every cttIien,of tho United
States knew, and has continued to know ever
einco he has been a citizen, the condition on
which the nation accepted ita capital from
the State of Maryland, then It necessarily
follows that all resldonts and all voters
whethor old residents or new comers must
have chosen thcr homes with a full notlcvof
their privileges and din jualifloatlons as citi
zens of the United States, and must 'aae
beon willing to abide by such laws and regu
lations ns Congress In tho exercise of Its ex
clusl.o Jurisdiction might decree In fur
therance of tho local necessities of the in
habitants of the cnpitAl, Congress, in further
exorcise of Its exclusive jurisdiction, gave
thorn (the Presidents) tho privilege of uhnos
ing officers to legislate for their local inter
est and to execute suoh local laws and or
dinances as might enhance tho comlort of
tho people The most zealous advocato of
popular rights in Washington will not claim
that the people had nn absolute authority In
herent In themselves for suoh local privi
leges, or will deny that Congress might have
refused to grunt even this local elective
franchise, and have governed tho capital In
any other manner best suited to Itself
Again The exclusive Jurisdiction of Con
gress necessarily gives the power to Increase
or diminish privileges previously granted
whenever It (Congress) shall dotermlne to do
so, without the least regard to the wishes or
objections of the Inhabitants, because tho
city or vvaeuingion is national pro(cr.y in
terest. in which the people of the Stutes are
directly ioterostod, and In all votes taken
relating to this capital the Representatives
uf the people aro legislating for the property
of their constituents and not fur the enj lo

slavery in the District of Columbia, livery
thinking man who Is willing to grant the
truth of oar premises' therefor.be his per
sonal sentiments as to the propriety of the
act what thoy may, will confess that In exer
cislng its prerogatives as legislator It was
not neoessary or proper that Congress should
consult the wlshevof tho people who hap
pened to have chosen Government property
for a home, aad, further, that the valuation
of negroes, formerly hold oa slaves, and tho
payment of money to their owners resident
on such Government property by Congress
was an act of kindness only, not necessary
for the carrying out of the law, if it (Con.
gress) had determined on absolute oncotopen-
rn.en eiu..i.ci pa uon. rer contra, ana as a
logical Inference from the arguments used,
the exclusive Jurisdiction of Congress jnst as
necessarily gave it the same power and au
thority In tho District of Columbia to en
slave free negroes (or white men) as It did to
freo slaves; and so long as this occlusive and
original Jurisdiction continue, Congress will
havo Just such power.
If our arguments aro sound the enlighten
ment of the age Is the only guarantee the
Inhabitants of Washington hare against a
renewal of alavery among them. Hence, as
Congress, In the exercise of exclusive Juris
diction, can, without consultation with or
consent of the Inhabitants, (oa It has already
done and for reasons already stated,) limit
the qualifications of thoro to whom It has
previously granted privilege of franchise,
It can ordain, an contained with such general
power of limitation, that no man shall vote
who cannot read and write, who does not
possess a given amount Of real estate, who
hag ever been In the rsbel army, who holds
or does not hold a Government office, who is
under twenty five years of aire. And no In
telligent man of either of the classes Into
which we have divided the voters of Wash
Ington, who will take time to think, and who
Is not governed entirely by impulse, will deny
ti, or would tninn ot resisting any sucu Jim
Hatlon law If adopted.
Suppose Congress (without changing the
quality or color of the vote as at present con
tlttitfarl Vinnlil eirrlatn (halt aa,.iMe aatiil
writing should be a qualification precedent
to to tin i In Washington. The effect mlcht
be to disfranchise one fiftn or one fourth of
our present ' citizens, ' but would any one
be found foolish enough to oouDsel resistance
to the law, as an interference with toe rights
of our votes ? We are confident that the
right reserved to us as citizens of tho whole
country the right of petition would be the
only means adopted to remedy the evil, if an
evil, which wo beg leave to doubt, Granting
the power to limit suffrage tn tho District of
Columbia, and the propriety to the acts by
which it has beon or may be hereafter lim
ited, let us judge whether an enlargement of
franchise should cause disturbance or outrage
or III will In acumraunity of differing opinions
In the earlier history of our city, very few
of our local office i were elocttre, and our
v otcrs were all men of property A majority
of our then Inhabitants, who constitute now
the voters opposed to enlarging tho right of
suffrage, (or tn those das there were no
"Jlepuhlicans" In the city,) absolutely nsked
tho power, hovlng exclusive jurisdiction in
tho premises, to extend the right of suffrage
to all (white) permanent residents, without
regard to property or other qualification,
and to grant the inhabitants moro elective
offices, and we have yet to hear any serious
injury resulting tnererroin
lhe tendency in Washington, as In all
cities, has been to the present time to en
large Abe elective franchise whether for
good or for evil, It Is not our province now
to discuss and our citizens hav e heretofore
hailed with delight suoh privileges granted
to em ny me people or the states
Now to condense Wo have had granted a
city government uy the power navingtooon
tire, supreme control of the city of At ashing
ton, wllhAcertaln defined principles laid down
In what we call a charter Vor I'uttimrjtose7
Congress, pressed with the legislation of an
entire country, says to the Inhabitants of its
capital, you may. as tou are llvlneonthe
property, chooso among yourselves proper
men to look after the education ot your chil
dren, the paving of your streets, and other
local matters, aud you are allowed to collect
a tax of 75 cents on every $100 of real estate
held by yourselves to defray your expenses,
but only those Interested In your affairs as
property holders shall vote But say our
friends to Congress, this proviso throws out
a large proportion of our population who have
no property Interest, and Congress is pleased
to enlarge the franchise so that every
white resident can vote without regard to his
interest or want of interest In the local
prosperity and comfort of his neighbor
None of us object We recognize the validity
of a law of Congress Are we not tnevlta
bly led plunged into the same position, if
Congress shall soy to us, you wero granto 1 a
qualified suffrage, you insisted upon n moro
general and extonded privilege, and It was
given to you Now, acting for the whole na
tion, Congress roo.gnlses a number of the
inhabitants of Washington whom you do not
allow to vote, and to whom you do not extend
thoie enlarged privileges which you akod
for They have as goud a right on national
property as jou have, and you must either
give up your privileges or extend it to all
citizens alike You may tax all alike, but
you must not dictate to the whole nation, in
the face of Its own laws, ns to who shall or
shall not enjoy jrlriteges intended to bo unl
versal in their application Shall we not
recognlzo the validity of the laws of Congress7
But, says our Loyal Bosldcnt of the antl
Ite.ublkan class, all this don t settle the
question of being forced to submit to arbl
trary laws against my consent Friend,
ploaso consider that laws jassed by compe
tent authority, by a majority of a nation,
are always distasteful to a minority, but
with your law abiding disposition you will
readily grant that tho laws of the land must
be enforced hero, or elsewhere, until declared
unconstitutional by Judicial authority, and
you are not forced to submit to offensive laws
further than the minority In every village,
town, city, nnd State In the Union is forced
to submit to the will of the majority. Would
you have It otherwise, even to gratify your
own seniimenis ' Are you not wuilog to
assist In enforcing a distasteful law rather
than to second u minority agreeing with you
in feeling, in acts of violence or oj position ?
oays our semi ioya. voters mis is negro

eal privileges uCLOnsarlly Involve social
union' N e iinuglno our objector to be a man
of Intelligence, and ask him if he believe I
that Jt la possible to legislate social quality
any more easily than to legislate at to the
thoughts of men, If be tells ui, as we think he
must, thai he, as a moral man, li willing to
dopostt bis ballot side by side with the fre
quenter of ibe brothel or the bawdy house,
and yet repudiates any familiarity with such
a party on other occasions, then we say to
him, contact with a negro voter cannot affect
your social standing
You may hate aneirro In Tourfamllr re

nose at him, refuse to ride in a street car
with him or her (unlers he or the carries

his bearings In foot, do or say any and
everything against him you please which
does not Involve breach of peace. Even Con
gress, with Its exclusive jurisdiction, cannot
prevent you from exercising suoh " rights "
You are only called on as a good citizen, say
once a year, to see that the law Is carried
out, to grant to all who are recognized bV
that law as citizens the same rltrhts which
you claim for yourself, and then, If the
necessity is upon you, go home and swear or
pray to your heart's content.
To the dlsloval, who would Inaugurate riot
and bloodshed rather than grant universal
suffrage who thml treason continually we
beg to say, In a spirit of kindness fur their
sins, whatever may hare been your Justifica
tion heretofore, the southern rebellion is
now over, you cannot consider the Capital
now as other than the property of the na
tion, and as suoh, you must grant, on inn
nei$ vritutvki. If not on political or national
grounds, that tbo General Government most
have and will exerolse the control of its affairs.
If you find your position uncomfortable,
please migrate to more congenial soil. Con

power) compel you to remain ou are free

any nation of the world, where the complex

Apologizing for this lengthened communica
