THE flPEECII OF SENATOR COWAN
Among the men in the United States
Senate who, through good and eril report
hare adhered to the landmarks of Qorern-
ment and maintained the fundamental prin
ciples on which onr institutions rest, Senator
Gowiit, of Pennsylvania, itauilj pre-eminently
distinguished for his legal knowledge; his
facility for debate, and power of demematra.
tlon- Under his ponderous flail the wheat of
constitutional lore is separated from tho dost
and chaff of rain rhetoric and unsound theo
ries. The speech which will be found in our
outside columns to-day, by tho Senator, rings
clear with the metal of statesmanship, and
reminds us of those palmy days or the Re
public when statesmen spoke instead of poli
ticians, and when public men rose aboro the
trammels of party dictation to comprehend
and consider the imperial interests of a
mighty and united people. Tho country
owes a debt of gratitude to Senator Cow ax
for reviving the school of national statesmen.
His effort brushed out of existence the frothy
declamation and the untenable, postulates of
the radical oratory which has lately deluged
that body; and for masterly presentation of
the purposes of the late war, and the present
duties of peace, it has nerer been surpassed
if it has been equalled in the chamber where it
was delivered. This speech should be sent
to every household in the land, and should
be read by every American patriot, to rout
the enemies of public peace and counteract
the deadly influence of the pestilential andj
incendiary harangues with which the con
gressional committees hare been dejuging
and desolating the whole North. Let the
friends of one country and one people circu
late this unanswerable document.
Yesterday, Tin Psisidut returned to the
Senate the bill providing for the admission of
Colorado u a State into the Un!on,with his
objections thereto. The Senate, for some
reason, did not hare the bill read; whether
out of respect to the priratc feelings of the
Secretary of that body, or for want of time
on account of the lobby pressure for an ex
ccutire session to hare the confirmation of
Bloavakib reconsidered, we aro unable to say;
but as the message was not read by the Sen
ate, It la yet the prirate property of that body,
and any publication of it before it is read in
the Senate would be irregular and improper.
"Wt regret, therefore, that wo are unable to
lay this important state paper before our
JEFF. DAVIS HEALTH.
Tho tender solicitude of the gentleman
employed by the Associated Press at i or
tress Monroe for the health of poor Mr.
J err. Datis may be deemed by some people
quite admirable. Ho thinks Mr. Dins is in
a declining condition. He believes that The
PErsiDE.ir has ordered a medical investiga
tion into the case. He don't know what the
result of 'the inquiry is, but he presumes
that ii is to the effect that some relaxation
of the rigor of jys confinement will bo neces
sary If the country desires Mr. Uavis life
to be prolonged. -It is somewhat strange
that this correspondent should have only
begun to express bis concern for J. D.'s
health after Mrs. J. D. arrived at Old Point
Comfort to look after her incarcerated hus
band. Previous to her arrival he was silent
upon the subject, and his officious telegrams,

Norfolk, smell strongly or female diplomacy,

TOE JUBILEE OP THE SABBATH
On Monday our citlxeni wlLneaaeti and
participated laiachctMMgiTC Joy to
every right-tUnklnr todwe.Lwiihing American-
Tho thousand of Sunday school chil
dren and their teacher, marshaled In long1
array, vrUa ratii.c and banner, emblem! and
mottoes, flower and sunshine, wu a specta
cle calculated to kindle the liveliest emotions
of pleasure In the breasts of all who wit-
The philosophers and statesmen of the Old
World have not yet rccorercd from the
amaicment Into which they were thrown by
our late ciril war. They cannot yet com-
prebend how our Government, unused to
military arms, with a population that had
hitherto been going headlong in all the en
terprises or peace, could become warlike
upon the instant, fight stupendous battles,
carry on long campaigns, and finally conquer
Into submission a gigantic rebellion, and
during all the conflict keep In motion the
popular institutions of our country.
The wise men of Europe believed that it
would he impossible to conduct a presiden
tial election during the ciril war we were
waging a war that might well tax to the
utmost all the energies of a mighty nation.
They now see that their prognostications
failed, but they cannot understand how the
grand consummation was achieved cannot
seo how such a result was accomplished. If
one of those amazed European publicists had
been hero last Monday wo would hare pointed
him to that grand procession of little chil
dren, and told him that in our system of
public education lies the strength of our in
stitutions. Love of country is taught in all
our schools, in the Sabbath schools as well
Our Sunday schools walk hand-in-hand
with our common schools, and help to lay
the foundations of that steadiness of charac
ter and purpose, and that lofty sentiment of
obedience to law and willingness to sacrifice
all for the safety of our beloved institutions,
which raised and sustained our armies in the
late terrible conflict. It was not a war for
conquest, but for the Union and the suprem
acy of the Constitution, on the part of the
Government, and it was tho lore of country
and reverence for law instilled into onr chil
dren in tho Sunday schools and other schools
which gave us volunteers for the armies by
hundreds of thousands. In the rebellious
States, love of country had been perverted
by teachings of the Cauiocx politicians, so
that It consisted mainly in lore to their State
as the paramount obligation of each citizen.
The marshal of the procession was a Sun
day school teacher who had earned the
shoulder straps of a Major General during
the war by his devotion to the cause of the
country and the military ability and courage
he displayed in the field. And throughout
our armies lately disbanded there are thou
sands upon thousands who had received a
Sabbath school training in their childhood
and youth. The steady determination of
our armies in their conduct of the war, and
the sublime moderation which crowned their
victory over the rebellion, we attribute
greatly to the Influence of our system of
popular education, and that influence will
control our partisan legislation when the
political passions of the hour Bliall have
It was a beautiful sight, that long line of
units which will make up a large portion of
oar community when they are grown to man
and woman's estate. As they marched gaily
along, the sunshine of hope seemed to encircle
them with a bright halo, and the hearts of
parents and friends beat responslvcly to the
pattering of their little feet as they wended
their way to the Capitol grounds, where,
under tho beautiful trees, they were ad
dressed with words of instruction and en
couragement by the public speakers. Some
of the more thoughtful of the spectators
doubtless saw in their mind's eye another
procession hovering over the marching throng
the viewless spirits of good and evil that
accompany these little ones along life's path
The bright hopes- and anticipations that
followed the children were mingled with
some sad thoughts of the temptations that
L were sure to assail them, the hardships that
many of themiwould meet, and the disasters
that would beta, some of them In the Journey
of life now opening brightly before thera;
and, as wo trust and bclievo, many prayers
n ere offered up that they might never be
called upon to witness during their mortal
career such a national struggle as their
fathers have Just passed through, but that
they might enjoy in peaco and happiness the
restoration of our beloved Union

TnBHECOICITBUOTlOlff PCAH OF THIS
' Tho New York Tiwma of Monday makes a clear
statement ot the objection Able featnrei ef tho
amendment to tho Conslltntlos. proposed by tho
committee of fifteen. '
We slate on Saturday tho manner la which tho
fivo amendments reported by Uo reeonetrnotlon
committee were forced through the llonto la a
lump, byaeoalltlon of theeitreme radicals under
Mr. Stevens, of Pennsylvania, and th eitremo
Copperheads vnder Mr. llarrls, of Maryland. Four
ef theee amendments mfno opposition la the
Union ranks. Every member of the Union party
had declared himself In favor of tho section guaian
teeing an equality of civil rtghUj of that basing
representation on voters: of tho one repudiating
tbo obel debt, and of tho last, giving Congrats
power to nuke these amendments afl"ectlveby
legislation. But upon the Miref seotton there was
a serious difference of opinion among Union men.
That section read as follows:
"Seo. 3. Until tbo 4th day of Julr, la tho year
1870. all vcrsons who volunUrilv adhered to the
lata Insurrection, giving It aid and comfort, thall
m xtiudd fnm Im ngkt
9 votifbr Ttpr$4itiativ
in CewgTfis mnd for $Uct9r$for JrrttidsrU and Vtct
PruutKt of Iks Umtod Statu.'
Of tbo Union members, nxtf-ons desired this to
bo itrieken out; bit tbo remalolag wwMy.wlth tbo
aid ctourtotn Copperhead Democrats, ordered the
previous question, which rendered H Impossible to
take a separata vote upon this section. They were
tsll. thartsfara. rnsUM.1 tnrttlissr. It mi bti well
onongb to examine the effect of adopttog this olanie 1
and sending It to tbo States to bo ratified as an
amendment of tho Constitution.
Tho section, It will bo seen, disfranchises the
great mass of tho people In tbo southern States
only la Toting for Ftdtral officers. Tbey will still
vote for the members of their Legislatures, and
those Legislatures will represent the Interests and
wishes ef tho great body of tho people of their re
spective StateathoM who did "adhere to the In
surrection ' as well ns those who did not. Now
those very Legislatures are to decide on accepting
or rejecting these amendments, and in regard to
this section they are to decide whether they will or
will not disfranchise their own constituents the
very men who elected them 1 Certainly. In the ab
sence of some very strong Inducement tbey cannot
be expected to do so. What inducement Is offeredf
It Ii propoeed to admit their representative Into
Congress If they will ratify theee amendments.
But they are not permitted to vote for representa
tires In Congress If this section is ratified. They
are expressly disfranchised by Its terms. If tbey
do not ratify It, therefore, they are not to hare
representation! If tbey do ratify It they may have
representation, but they out themselves off from
being represented ! Is It not absolutely certain
that such a proposition will be Instantly and con.
But this is not all. Tho other proposed amend
ments turn on tho same condition. All must be
adopted and become parts of the Constitution, or
none take effect. These rebel Legislatures must
not only disfranchise themselves In Coogress, but
they must also concede equal rights to theVeolored
population, surrender part of their political power
by consenting to change tbo basts of representa
tion, repudiate tho debt of tbelr Government and
abandon all claim to compensation for tbelr flares;
and In exAange for all this tbey get representation
t'je wkith tfuy art not to It reprtunUd '
It Is difficult to believe that any single member
of the committee which reported these amendments,
If he knew the meaning and effect of thlspno,
could hare believed for a moment that there was
the faintest shadow of a ebanee of tbelr adoption.
The passage of tbo "Plan' In this form secures be
yond all peradveoture the continued exclusion of
tbo Southern States. That this was th object or
tb Copperheads In forcing the previous question,
so as to prevent amendment, Is more than probable,
for th bop to bring them In on better terms by
That It was the object of Mr. Stevens and most
of those who acted with him, Js still more certain
from their declarations. They do not went the
Southern States represented. Tbey do not Intend
that any of them shall be until after the next
presidential election. And by securing the adop
tion of this amendment with the others, tbey have
taken an Important step in the process of exclusion.
If the Joint resolution Just passed by the House
shall pass the Senate In the same form, then will
come up the bill granting representation to the
States on condition of ratifying these amenJments
efter tbej shall bare become valid as parts of the
Constitution. That miy pass, Inasmuch as only a
majority rote Is required. But It will eertslnlv bo
vetoed, and then tbo Issq will go to the country
Any one who supposes that Congress will be sus
tained In any such self-stultify Ing action as this,
must rate at a very low standard the common sense
of th people at large.

COMMERCIAL CnOLt.lt A DISPOSED OP.
On motion of Mr. Chandler, tb Joint resolution
to prevent th Importation of cholera Into the ports
of th United States wu taken np,
Mr. Johnson argued briefly against tb constitu
tionality of the Joint resolution.
Mr. Sumner claimed tb right of Congress to
pass it nnder their power to regulate eoamrc.
Mr. Morrill. Is cholera commerce?. (Laughter )
Mr. Sumner hesitating, Mr, Morrill repeated,
Is cholera commerce, or Is It disease?
Mr. Sumner. Well, It runs In different ways.
Renewed laughter, which was checked by the
Mr. Sumner said this wu not an attempt at a new
power, but a renewal of old power. 1 1 wu admitted
that regulations could bo made in regard to pas
sengers, and why not to tbelr health ? If he un
derstood his Wend Mr. Morrill be claimed that
quarantine regulations belonged solely to tbe States.
Air. MorrllL Mostly.
Mr. Sumner characterised this Idea u a ab
surdity. Tbe right to pus It was clearly vested
In Congress. It wu th commercial right, and this
wai why he Mr. S.J bad offered tbe amendment
conferring tbe authority on th Secretary of lb

Mr. Sherman, who reported, from th Committee
on rinanoe, th bill to red ace tbe rat of interest
of the national debt, and for funding th same, with
an amendment. Th amendment makes the allow
ance of 2 percent, of th amount of bonds for "pre

Mr. Sheman said be would like to call up this

terfere with bis friend, Mr. Fcsssenden, who bad
already given notice of bis desire to set apart next

Mr. Fessenden aald he wu opposed to th bill;
and, so far u he wu concerned, it should never
Mr. Sherman. Very well; I will meet the Sena
tor on that point.
Th discussion on the pending question wu then
continued by Messrs. How and Chandler.
Tbe Chair laid before tbe Senate a communica
tion from a physician of INew York urging th pu
sape of this or some similar measure.
The question wu then taken on th amendment
of Mr. Sumner conferring the power to us the
means at his disposal forth establishment of san
itary cordons on the Secretary of th Treasury In
conjunction with tbe Secretaries of the War and
Mr. Harris offered an amendment making It the
doty of tb Secretary of tb Treasury t act Id co
operation with tbe State and municipal authorities;
which wu disagreed to.

agreed to by tbe following vote

Mr. Chandler then moved to lay the resolution
on tbe table; which wu disagreed to by a vote of
23 to 15..
The Question recurred on tb resolution u pasted
by the Houu.
Mr, Chandler said this resolution conferred much
more absolute power than the substitute reported
from th Committee on Commerce. Tbe sub
stitute proposes to place the authority In tho
band of three persons, In some of whom he
had confidence. This resolution gave tb while
power to the President. Andrew Johnson was to
hare absolute power. lie (Mr. Chandler) could
not vote ror th resolution. II had been willing
toglr tho power to three men, In some of whom
be had confidence, but could not give It to one
man in whom be had no confidence whatever.
Mr. McDoagallsald that as to the on msn the Sen
ator objected to, In blm h Mr, McD.l bad tbe great
est confidence. Notwithstanding this. In his Judg
ment, this bill was a very onwlseone. He wss of
