Cairo JtutUHtn The Fifteenth Amend

signed not only to give the negro the ballot
in Illinois, but is to make him the equal of
tho white man.
This falsities the position taken by radical
lcadqrs in the last political canvass, , when
thoy declared that it was not the intention of,
congres to Interfere with the question of suf
frngo in tho .States. Judge "Woodson, of
Groeno, ofTcred a substitute to the senate
resolution providing for n vote bo taken
upon tho subject before the people of tho
State, but it was io j with tho radicals.
They are determined to forestall and disre
gard tho voice of the people upon this, as
well as other nefarious schemes.
Tho most imjiortatit measure of tho session,
and ono perhaps tho most novel, it what is
known as tho Casoy bill. Originating with
the Hon. Sam K. Oasey, of .JeiTcrson, it pro
vides for appropriating tho taxes raisod for
.State purposes in excels of tho assessment for

tio. This por centum secures the payment of
tho lnteret on the bonds, with money to
paro for part of the principal. It has taken
a gn at deal of work to aeeomplinh this end,
and Its friends and originators nre entitled to
the gratitude of their cunflituents as well in
the people of the' whole State. Your worthy

In tho extraordinary harangue which Mr.
McClure, of 1'hlladelphia, delivered at (Sen.
Grant n few days ago, he said :
I venture to appeal to you hot to give
place in tho cabinet to an v one of the cluss of
men understood to h embraced in the list
from which it is stated you will make your
selection. I mean men of tho type of George
H. Stuart and Mr. Borlo. IMg you not
to make tbu appointment from thut class of
men. Thev nave no sympathy whntuver
with the Motive republicans nl tne utato. .
Thov have no knowledgo of our people, nnd )
the appointment of any of themuud the dls- ;
penslng of the patronage of tho tate by them :
would cause the uttor ruin of the party in j
the coming canvass. I again appeal to you j
not to appoint a man of this clas.
And what has Grant done? Why, right
in tho face of these appeals, he appointed Ho
rlo, ono of tho very men who "huvo no sym
pathy with the active republicans, und no
knowlodgo of tho people." Mlrabllo dlotu I '
