Shall the Negro Vote?
The elective franchise ia the higheft'
privilege that any one can enjoy in the
affaire of oivil government. The eleotor
is greater than the person elected, if attoh
person he not sn eleotor. Electors i
ohoose Presidents, Congressmen, Gover
nors, Legislators, Judges, Sheriff, &o.;
thnrfifore. in the affairs of State, the
eleotor is the Bourse of all power, end by
consequence the superior in civil, govern
ment. Considering -tne elector id iub
light of the foregoing facts, it is appa
rent that the question as to who shall
enjoy that high privilege, is an important
one, and sbould not oe ironies ot nguny
nor deoided without due deliberation,
Our fathers, in the eiabltsbment of a
constitutional government ia this State,
tixty-five years ago, in their great wisdom,
limited the elective ranohise to white
male inhabitants who had attained the
age of twenty one years, and had been a
tahi limit of the State one year next
preoeding the election. Again, u 1851,
the people of Ohio adopted the present
Constitution with a similar provision
respecting the elective franchise. :
It is fair to oonoiuae, irom me action
of the people of this State in 1802, tnd
BTiiin in 1851. that the white man ivas
oonsidered, at those times, as the only fit
narson to exercise the elective franchise
in Unio. Ana me question now, uo
things ehanged in thatrespeot, end is the
negro more ni to oecome an oiecior uuw
than then; end is not,
expediency, ot the good
does policy,
of the State,
demand that he shall be now invested
with the highest privilege kiown in our
oivil ponicy ? We assume that the people
were right in laua, ana in ioui, in lim
iting suffrage to wnite men,' oeosuse no
prnes were then, se a olasa; unfit to ex
eroiie that privilege, and further, thsre
has been no change, in mat respect, 10
the present time. j ' .
" That some negroes are ss intelligent as
some white men, is not denied ; but, aai
olase even 00 the score of intelligence
they aro far inferior to the white raoe.
But we do not put the right to a voioe in
tbe affairs of government, on tbe ground
of intelligence alone. There ia an an
tagonism between tho white and blaok
races which oannot be reconciled by any
artificial conventionality in the frame
wort of civil government, and which, in
and of itself, is a sufficient reason why
the tw,o races being intermingled in the
same community should not be on an
eaual footing in all respects. God, in
his infinite wisdom, orcated the races of
men with different characteristics, and it
is not for man to attempt to harmonize
these distinctions bo clearly visible in
tho white and black race. We have no
unkind feelings toward the negro, and
are willing that he shall liveln Ohio, and
enjoy all the privileges he noW-his; but
we think it would be bad policy to .give
him the ballot, and by that means, drag
him from the ouiet seolueion he now en-
jojoj-wbwmo th jgillUg tooli of-i-atato
oious and unscrupulous men, Who, by
appeals to passioQ and prejudice, will
alwava ba able to control, for (heir owe
benefit, that class of voters.

Congratulatory Address of
the Democratic Executive
Committee.
DEMOCRATIC COM'EE. EX'TIVE ROOMS,
COLUMBUS, April 11, 1867.
DiMOORAte vif Ohio: We congratu
late you upon the cheering political iodir
cations. Our party, as it were, has
passed through long, dark politioal
night so long and so dark that many
have despaired of the dawning of day ;
but t last the night is passing away, and
a ray of light breaks through the thick
darkness eastward. In New Hampshire
the Repullioan majority has fallen off.
Connecticut unfurls the Constitution and
records a decisive majority for the De
nrooraoy giving to the demooratio can
didates en. the Stato ticket a majority of
about one thousond, electing three out
of the four candidates . for Congress,
and causing the Legislature to stand:
Senate, 11 Republicans and 10 Demo
crats ; House, 127 Republicans and 117
Democrats. At the spting eleotion in
1862, preceding the fall eleotion wherein
the Democracy carried Ohio, Pennsylva
nia, New York, Indiana, Illinois, New
Jersey and Delaware, vonnecmut gave
the Republican candidate for Governor
a majon'i of nine thoutand. ine Sen
ate was a unit against the Democrats and
the House stood: Republicans 171;
Democrats 66 ; being a Republican ma
jority of 146 on joint ballot, against a
majority of only 11 on joint ballot now.
By reference and comparison, ve find
the spring eleotions this year - in New
York, Pennsylvania, New Jersy, lndi
ana and particularly in Ohio, are as much
of an improvement on the spring elec
tions in these States in 1862, as was the
eleotion in Coniectiont on tne 1st in
stant an improvement on the result in
that State in 1862, in the fall of which
year the Democratic party triumphed so
grandly.,. 1 ; : , , :
We herein recosroize cause tor cons
eratolation, and an insentive that should
spur Democrats everywhere to the most
energetio effort. If our information is
not, faulty, continuously for fourteen
years did the Democracy of Connecticut
encounter defeat at tho polls; but, not
daunted, belioviog in tbe righteousness
of their cause, they fought on and they
now find their reward in a , triumphant
victory.; They had to encounter despe
rate antsgomsm intellect, money and
intemperate appeals io passion and prej
udice. They have overcome all What
the Demooracy. of Connecticut did the
Democracy of othor States can dothrongh
the same dauntless and persistent effort.
You, the Derroorots of Ohio, oan do it.
You have not suffered exclusion from
power in tbo State for the la3t fourteen
years, an did the Democracy of Connec
ticut.. .You oarried the State in 1862 by
majority ranging from five looker seven
thousand, although at the preceding State
election you were defeated, by a majority
of 55,203 your aggregate vote in the
being only 157,794, whereas the
of
of
be
or

Republican aggregate .vote in the State
was 206,997.. 1,10 very next year your
vote for Secretary of State was 184,3P.2
an increase of 32,o38 on tha preceding
year,, whereas the Republican vote for
Secretary of State was 178,741 a falling
on ot Zs.Zob as 00m pared with the vote
ot tbe preceding year. The Republican
majority in this State last fall on Secre
tary of. State was 42,696-12,507 less
tban it was against you in 1861, and jet
you carried the otate at the ensuing eloo
tion trivmphantly. We cite these votes
to encourage and stimulate you to an ac
tive co-operation with ns in the effort to
carry the State.. Even did not the result
of tbe election in Connecticut and at the
municioal elections elsewhere, bid us
hope for success as the reward of ener
getic work, the revolutionary conducof
tbe Radicals in Congress,, and espeoially
the efforts of tne leaders ot the . Repub
lioan party here in Ohio to drag the white
man down to a politioal, and thence to
social, equality with the Negro, should
oause such repugnance as to arouse the
pride of raoe io every White mac to re
sent so impndent an insult by voice up
on the Republican leaders and their can
didates overwhelming condemnation.
We therefore, beseeoh you, one and all
so to direct your labors as to bring about
this result, )(It will require work hard,
unceasing work, irom now unnll tho eleo
