The Change the Radicals Propose
in the Constitution of the
State of Ohio.
Manx of our readers do not uudorslani
the nature of the "Amendment to the Consti
tution" of the State of Ohio, which the Rad
ical Legislature passed on the 6th of this
month, and of which we spoke last week.
Here is Seotion I. of Article V, of the Con
stitutionthe Section containing the word
WHITE whioh Section the Negro-Suffrage
Radicals want strloken out, beoause they art
opposed to the Constitution as it is;
CONSTITUTION OF OHIO, ART. 6, SKO. 1 iS IT IS
Every white u.ale citizen of the United
Slates, of the age of twenty-one years, who
shall bare been a resident of the State one
year next preoeeding the eleotion, and of the
county, township, or ward in wbion he re
sides such time as may be provided by law,
shall have the qualifications of an elector,
and be entitled to vote at all elections.
It is that word WUITE that anneys the
Radical fanatics.
Now, reader, here is the substitute they
want you to go to the polls next October
and vote for:
8UBST1TCTB.
Every male citizen of the United States, of
the age of twenty-one years, wfco snail have
been a resident or the state one year
next preceeding the election, and of the
county, township, or ward in Which
resides, such time as may be pro.
vided by law, except such persons ag have
Wn armd in snncort of anv insurrection or
rebellion against the government or the um
ted States, or have Had from their places of
residenceto avoid being drafted into the mil'
itary service thereof, or have deserted the
military or naval eervioe of said government
in lime of war, and have not suosequenuy
been honorably discharged from the same,
shall have the qualifications of an elector
and be entitled to vote at all elections.
Do you see how nicely they have drawn
up that substitute? the word WHITE being
omitted. They want, the Constitution to
read "Every male citizen of the United
States," instead of "Every WHITE male
citizen," whiob will of course, if not re
jected, enfranchise any , Nigger 'who shall
" have been a resident of the State one year
" next preceeding the electien,"
The reader will also observe that they are
not satisfied with enfranchising thousands of
negroes who may come into this State "to
vote for de Union," but they must disfran
chise white men, who, they fear, will tele
against them.'
Beneath the heading "Strike, but
Hear," the Editor of the Jackson Stan
dnrd, who, it is generally supposed, is
crazy on (he African and several other
questions, publihhca an article, occupy
ing two aod-a-balf columns ia that pa
per, giving a general history of himself
from the first time he voted to the last
time, and wjiy he wrote the names of two
Copperheads on the last ticket he voted.
He Bays he "arrived at the age of twonty
ono years, on the 11th of December,
1840." Truly, that was a distinguished
arrival; but wo do not remember of
reading of the arrival in the History of
the United States, or of it in his "Ban
dom Thoughts." He says he oast his
first vole ia April, 1840, and has voted at
every election,' from President down to
School Director, sinoethat timo. He
then gives the names of theae whom he
voted for. for President and of oourse
saying thathe'voted in 1864 for Lin
ooln, and that he "regards voting as a
religious doty and always votes to effect
some . purpose." Ha neglected to say
that he vetedfor Andrew Johnson, in
1864, but be did vote for him when be

"(JopperbeadY'pro-Blavery," a number

things too numerous to mention, are so.

he is a man of superior merit, of supe

superior accomplishments, even if it is

The figures irom Connecticut look
better as they bocame more exact. Eng
lish is elected by a round majority of
one thousand, and the Lesislature it

The moral effect of this victory of con

with a new courage the friends of the
Union throughout our bread land.

About the Removal of

Ma. Editor:' '-Young America"
haa fnr soma time been silont upon the
question of removal of the oounty seat
from MoArthui to Zaleski. for various
reasons, the prinoipal reason being that
nt ill haahh. but becoming Bomewnai
animated noon hearing the subjeot men
tioned, hsve ooncludod to venture a few
remarks through my son, and ask indul
genoe on the part of the public, for any
error that he may make, in expressing
my thoughts. First, permit me to say to,
the citizens ot WcArtnur, , tnat youij
county Beat will be remnved to Zileski
in spite of all you can do, if the arrange--
meots be perteoted,tnat are now on iooi,j
and are matters of general . talk, and
therefore no longer remain 'a seoret.-j
The arrangements now on foot are these j
1st. Eagle Township wishes to be at'
taohed to Roes county, and tor the puip
pose of accomplishing this, will vole for
the removal ot tne county Beat to m
leski.
2nd. Lee Township in Athens coun
tv. wishes to be attaoued to vmton.H
But Athens county, being already a
small as the Constitutional provision
will Dermic, and thus requiring anothei
Townshin to be attaohed to Atuonl
oounty and there being two objects to
be accomplished In this move ana ins
parties concerned in tne matter, navs
oonsentod to have mrlow in vvasning
. a . 1
too county, attached to Atnens, tnus
leaving Athens with her political major
ity the same as before. Ibis matter be
ing accomplished, leaves Roes with a
small inoreascd Democratic majority.
Lee Township attached to Vioton, makes
Vinton Republican by a majority of two
hundred and fifty or more, and changes
the oentro of tbe county to ZalcBki,or
beyondi .
Tbus Zalebki has a tar 6uperior,siaim
for the removal of the oounty seU, tor
the reason that the point Imuch
is central, and the business done,being
greater than that of Mo Arthur.
Thia matter being: accomplished, gives
Zaleski the oounty-seat, and the Repub
lioan party the power in Vinton county.
It is a suggestion worthy of the con
sideration of MoArtbur folks,' that they
begin to work, and WORK lively WORK
DAY AND NIGHT, IN THOUGHT, ACTION
and peed. WHY? Because" your in-
terest in property is at stake. As soon
as tbe county-soat ia removed from your
town, vour trade diminisnop; your prop
erty decreases in value, and your prop
ertv. now rented, will become deserted,
and will stand, as tbe deserted ruins of
old tjERCULANEUM, to pe rememDerea
by the past. : ,
I only make mention of this matter at
present for the purpose of learning the
sentiment of tbo publio generally ; and
if, upon fsatisfectory proof being furo
isbed that the citizens, being 'owners of
. L ' -11?
property in atcArtnur, are wining 10
trade tbe county-seat for political power,

Mr. Editor : Now, so far as we of
Western States are concerned, the Yan
keea down East have shrewdly managed
to get ns pretty well taxed in advance
so to Bpeak. Thoy are exceedingly sharp
follows those Yankees. You never
supposed, did you, that all their prof
ions of solicitude in regard to the welfare
of tbe Negro were sincere ? Not a bit of
it. They are merely "running" tbo ne
gro beoause they can - make money on
him ; and bo far, they have succeeded
pretty well. They got forty-six millions
of dollars from the Government in one
year for making fire arms, and managed
so as to give us the taxes to pay by way
of compensation for not being equally
favoied with them in the matter of con
tracts. -
Now these Yankees are ablo to sup
port themselvos just about thirty days
out of three hundred and sixty-five
they are dependent upon the West tbe
rest of tbe time ; and yet, they exer
eise a very powerful influence at Wash
ington City, While ttie Yankees pay
three per cont. by way of taxes, we of
the West pay five. This should be cor
rected ; the Government should be just
to all its parts; it is a disgraoe to the
Government that, while, we of the (Vest,
have more population, as much wealth
and a great deal more genuine devotion
to the cause of the Union and the Con
stitution, we should be made "hewers of
wood and drawers of water" to the in
habitants of another section of our
oountry. But how do they manage to
do all this? The answer is plain:
Theae Eastern mon are all Republicans.
A Republican is eleoted from the West
from Indiana or Illinois and when he
goes and takts his seat in the House or
the Senate if he bogins to show the
least disposition to think for himself, and
do what is best for his constituents at
home these men, who are leaders of that
party in Congress, go to him and Bay :
"If you do not vote for and with your
party, you will not be regarded as loyal
to the' Government." It is tbus that
you destroy your own interests when you
placo a Republican in power.
' These things must be changed. Let
us go to work in earnest. We have a
high and important duly imposed upon
us. Our forefathers have left us, in the
free institutions of oar oountry, a legacy
richer by far than the wealth ot all the
mines in the world. They left us a Gov
ernment under which the avenues of for
tune, of honor, and of position, are open
to every one of our ohildren ; therefore,
it has been the privilege of every oitizen,
no.matter though he might be the hum.
blest in the land, to look upon his little
children as they sported around bis fire
ride, and that at some, future time he
would have the happiness of seeing them
ocoupy lespectable positions in Bocioty,
or perhaps taking part in the oounoils of
tne nation, Tnat tu ought sootned bis
heart as he travelled the rugged road of
life, and in his dying hour he lifted his
eyes to heaven in gratitude that he was
leaving such a legacy to his children.
Strike that out of our hibtory let it be
written of us that we were the degener
ate of noble sires that we allowed tho
glorious liberties bequeathed to us by a
jreneratiou ot heroes and patriots to ' be
torn from our grasp; and what more is
there to hope for? Life would indeed
beoome a weary thing. What hope could
we tben have tor our little boyB, spring
ing ud around, us? Tbe Government
whioh baa ever boen the guardian of our
lives and property, is destroyed and an
arcbv must follow. Let us not deoeive
ourselves into the belief that it is possi
b!e to destroy tbe freedom of our people
without a most fearlul Bacnhoe of bu
man life. No oeople upon: earth having
onoe been free has ever yet yielded np its
rights and liberties into tbe bands ot
Diotator without a most fearful a most
desperate a most bloody struggle. And
should suoh an attempt be made upon
the liberties of the American people we
most expeot to pass through such soenes
of carnage and of terror as characterized
the French Revolution. . When: Madam
Roland, standing beneath the guillotine,
raised her baud toward the statu of
Liberty, and exolaimed, "Oh, Liberty,
how many crimes are committed m thy
name?" she only expressed, what must
oocur everywhere when the attempt is
made to crush out the liberties of a free
people. Our only safety from tbe hon
rors of revolution is in the Constitution.
Preserve that inviolate and we are safe
'A

will Wt Not etotilA I-mt to My
that majorities peed the protection of the
Constitution quite as muoh as minorities

over the land, the very; men who control

enough for those, Republicans. .'iTbey

the wheel of fortune turns.cl They may

as it is that of any body, ehe 'that the

J. A. M.
Editor Democratic Enquirer: J
have never written anything yet for pub
lica'.ion in a newspaper; but with your
permission, I waot you to publish a few
hoes for the benefit of your readers, ana
particularly for the people of Vinton
oounty. Your paper has an excellent
name ENQUIRER and I beg loave to
suggest to you. Dir. Editor, that you tn
quire into all the rascally aots of those
who waot to be looked upon as "Dig
men,", "celebrated lawyers," and so on.
You will find, by referring to the tenth
chapter of Aots, (Vnd I observe in your
Enquirer that you, a sinner, occasionally
look in the Bible,) that "The men who
were sent out from Cornelius had made
inquiry." Now I, a woman, Lave not
been "sent out," but I have "made in
quiry" about many things, some of whioh
I wish to make known through the col
urns of your paper, as I suppose you are
pleased to have any one oommuoicato to
you "truth, information, or knowl
edge." In the first place, 1 shall tell
you some things about "unprotected wo
men," having learned that a lawyer, call
ing himself Bratton, was a friend to un
protected women." This lawyer, Brat
ton, may be a friend to "unprotected
women," but I will inquire . after his
friendship a little. Not three years ago
an "unprotected woman,',' who lives near
MoArthur, had a bad ten dollar bill
nassed on her. and when sho was told it
was bad, bo returned it to the person of
whom she got it, and be did not take
it back ; and the "unprotected woman"
came to town to see a lawyer aboat it, and
called on Bratton. He Baid, "I will make
him take it back : 1 and he went away
and receive! a good bill for the bad one,
and cave the ''unprotected woman ..just
one half of the ten dollars. Does this
lawyer Bratton think he done right in
charging an 4 unprotected woman' five
dollars for carrying a bud ten. dollar bill
three or four miles? I am in the act of
inquiring seeking for information by
asking this question, through the col
umns of your paper. Shame I Steal
five dollars from an "unprotected woman"
and tben publicly pretend to be a friend
to ''unprotected women," Again, I feel
disposed to tell you, Mr. Enquirer " Edi
tor, of another "unprotected woman"
that this lawyer Biatton has been a great
friend to. or more cronerlv "speaking, a
friend to her pocketsbook. This "un
protected woman," who has five ot six
little ohildren to take care of, employed
thia lawyer Bratton to collect a judg
ment of fourteen hundred dollars off of
her husband, from whom she had been
divorced. After' about two years, a piece
of land was eold. but not for enough to
pay her the amount of tbe judgment by
about three hundred dollars, and Bratton
tried very hard to get the money of this
unprotected woman into bis nanus by
demanding it of the Sheriff. The Sher.
iff would not rav it to him. thinking of
oourse that the woman with fife or six
little children needed .what justly be
longed to her more than a, lawyer. . Brat
ton then made ber tpayhim a hundred
and fifty dollars or co'lleoting eleven
hundred, and was mad because Bho did
not want to giva bim two hundred. Now
this is what he oaUs being a friend to
"unoroteoted women.' ''Steal all that
can be stolen. " and then get angry be"
cause more can't be stolen. '
I hope you will publish these few lines
in your good Lnquuer, and greatly oh
lige an ' '

PROSPECTUS
—OF—
THE CRISIS,
For 1867.
Tub BeTenth Volume, nn J the Sevsnth
Tear of the publication of Tun Crisis is
about to begin, and, in accordance with cus
tom, we Issue our Annnal Prospectus. We
need not recapitulate its history during the
stormy years of its existence, nor remind
those who have read It, of its services in be
half of the great principles of the Democra
cy, aod woat its conductors conc'ived, and
what time has shown, to be. the best interests'
of the country. Its merits have been ac
knowledged from the time it was started by
that veteran and distinguished journalist,
Got. MedXrt. and its present conductors
simply claim for it the oiedii of an earnest
and undeviatmg adherence to the plan ana
principles of its founder. In all the politi
cal vicissitudes of the past six yeais the
failure of some, the apostacy of others, and
the unguarded weakness of many, exponents
of Democracy, The Crisis has nerer denia
ted from the straight path of principle, nor
b.en allured by temporary expedients, in
timidated by threats, nor disheartened by'
defeat and disaster.
On tbe score of prinolple we claim for it
the merit of fidelity, honesty, and consist
ency. As a newspaper we claim for it the
merit of being an exponent of Western in
terests and ideas, a reliable journal of the'
times, a valuable companion ot the farmer,
the mechanic, the buiiness man, and ihe
family circle. It is our aim to fill the large
sheet with matter of real interest and per
manent value to disouss questions of prin
ciple that are of real significance, to inform,
improve, and instruct, as well as amuse
and to this end we discard the idle twaddle
which goes so far to fill up the, daily papers,
the ohsoene advertisements and the sensa
tional folly of the day. We oould publish
hundreds of letters from the best men of the
country approving of the course of The
Cai8i8 in this respect, and to this oourse we
propose to rigidly adhere. The reliable
market reports and the great amount of
statistical, agricultural, financial, and po
litical information we publish, is of Im
portance and value to business men, farm
ers, mechanics, and politicians ; while the
carefully selected page of literary miscella
ny which each number contains, commends
it to the home circle of all.
The political views of The Crisis eoarcely
require definition. It is in favor of Demo
cratic principles in all their breadth and
purity, as expounded by Thohas Jefferson,
and the other really great men and founders
of the Government,- and upon whioh the
Government was successfully conducted for
seventy years. It. is opposed to the Aboli
tion despotism which now controls the Fed
eral Government, in all its shapes and un
der whatever device it may appear. It is
opposed to the entire Abolition theory of
politics, and all the monstrosities, humbugs,
and delusions which grow out of it. It is
opposed to the thieving jascality, tbe ty
rannical assumptions, the stupid and bar
barous policies and the lawless usurpations
ot Congress, and to all the machinery that
the Jacobins have devised and put. in opera
tion to overthrow Republican Government,
inaugurate anarchy and absolutism, enslave
the people, and oppress them with odious
tnxes, and tyrannical, insane, ana corrupt
legislation. And In advocating the correct
principles and opposing the evils we have
named, we shall continue to do it without
fear or favor.
In order to successfully conduct such a
paper as The Crisis, it must have a largo
list of subscribers ; and to secure that we
rely upon, our friends and those who have
taken the paper. We cannot compete with
the cheap, shoddy publications of the East
by offering -bogus premiums or employing
traveling agents ; but we earnestly solicit
tbe aid of our rcadurs in extending our cir
culation by their personal efforts. It will
require , but little exertion from eaoh, but
the aggregate will enable us to furnish them
with a paper fully equal in size, superior in
print to- any liiustern publication, ana or a
great deal more interest and importance to
Western Democrats. Friends, shall we call
upon you in vain, lor ine sman iavor we
ask, and in a cause ol such magnitude and
value ? Now is ihe time to send in sub
scriptions for the new volume, which, at the
end of the year, will be worth thrice the
amount of tbe subscription piico.
Our terms are $3.00 per year, 1,50 ror
six months, $1.00 for four months.
One extra copy will be sent to any one
getting up a olub of six yearly subscribers ;
and to any one sending a olub of ten for six
or fo ur . months an extra copy for the club
time.
For a club" 6T tan yearly subscribers a
