Tinrni ijr Irrn nig-, iebrimry S, IS7O. I'HE VI ITERS rU AMEMISESr. lis ble Cnforoonoil. A though the proposed Fifteenth A rne oiment can not legally become a pa;: of the Constitution, so long a J Its . ideation depends upon the enfor ce! , ction of State legislatures, there cr eno doubt t hat the piesent revolu lul iury Congress will pr u'laiin itsa do on and provideforitsenforcenient. Vi _ .da, Mississippi, am! Texas were hei ' >nt of the U li >n. until their leg islatures gave their assent to the A rnet.driienl, and their ratification was com ced by the threats from Congrt s thai unless they ratified they should no- be admitted. Georgia, after hav ing been admitted into the Union, was ( xj elled because she refused to ratify, and her legislature is now being manip ulated so as to secure ratification. We apj cal to the candor arid good faith Of the reader, if this Is a fair or law ful ratification. It certainly is not. It is a bold and shameless fraud; a swindle practiced not only upon the Democrats, but also upon Republi can •. We are now to have Negro Suf frc e. IF V are to have if without being (ilh.iced (he privilege of voting upon the proposition to establish it. The Repub lican leaders have deliberately, inten tin ally and fraudulently violated their pledge to their own party follow ers, that Negro Suffrage should not be established in Pennsylvania without firs 1 submitting the subject to a vote of too people. If they had lived up to tliis pledge, if the people bad been pei mitted to vote on the Fifteenth A mei uuieut, there could be no cour plaiut from any quarter. But they de ceived the public, they betrayed their own follow < rs and all that remains to to toe victims of their treaclu ry, is for the while men of both parties to unite together and rebuke their faithless ness. There is hardly a doubt that persons of Alrican descent will vote in many pat s of tiiis State at the next elec tion. The Constitution of the State, iiuv ver, limits the right of suffrage to free white male citizens, of the age of ttt'tntj one years and upwards. This is in <• :tft coiiflict vilii the fraudulently ad" ted Fifteenth Amendment. Un til t clause in our State Const itu tio .art jtcaled, it is the supreme Jaw so f. r as Pennsylvania is concerned. — 'Tii. Fourteenth Article of the Federal Constitution provides a remedy lor thi- eoi diet. It declares that whenev er a Stale shall deprive any of its citi zens of the elective franchise, except fur participation in rebellion or other crime, its representation in Congress slia l he curtailed in proportion to the nu: ' ST of persons so disfranchised. Th lefore, if Pennsylvania refuse to strike tie word "while" from her con stitution, her negroes will not be coun ter! n the apportionment of represen tatives in Congress. Hut she will not 10-< a single member if they are not counted. They do not number votes orio tgh in the whole State to entitle th -mi to one representative in Con > w, we doubt not, an issue will be ni.t'.oon the point just stated. Shall Pennsylvania strike the word "white" out of her Constitution f If we really intend to give the negroes the elective franchise, that little hut potent word must lie expunged. If they are to vote by mere sufferance, and their right to toe allot is to be controlled by regis ter- and election officers, according to thei ■ various views of State and Feder al sovereignty, the State Constitution, net ii not IK? altered. That this ques tion will soon he pressed upon public attention, there can be 110 dwubt. — Whatever may be our individual o pinl ois on the a! stract question of Ne gro Suffrage (we know some negroes who would certainly vote more inde pendently and intelligently than cer tain white radicals we wot of;) it le --coni us, to unite in repudiation of tin men who have deceived and betrayed alii. • both Democrats and Republi can?-.

The esse of Seal and Find'ay in tie State Senate, says the Pittsburg Past, is somewhat, remarkable for several reasons, and not the iea-t of which is the allegation set up by Mr. Scull in his petition, that there were certain ; paupers voted for Mr. Findlay,there fore ho ought tube ousted from his seat, and Mr. Scull installed. Whether certain paupers did or did not vote for Mr. Fit (Hay we neither know nor care. It is altogether pos-i- [ hie that a- many voted for Mr. Scull as j for Mr. Find lay. We w ere not awan before that to hp poor im| bo d a lack of intelligence to such an • .vent as to de | liar a man of the privilege of casting a | ballot. Intelligence ought to go no in considerable distance in determinit g j; man's eligibility to vote or hold < f fice. * Taking this view of it, we suggest ■ that a competent phrenologist be sent to Ilarrisburg to take a uiushand milk east of Mr. Scull's skull with a view to a critical phrenological examina tion, to see whether he possesses the i requisite bumps to act in the capacity of a Senator of the Commonwealth.— If he don't come up to the standard, j let his aspirations be snuffed out.— j We have known legislators, and even ! members of Congress, who were fa ! less intelligent than numbers of their poor constituents. Mr. Scull evidently thinks that men j have no business to be poor, and If they j are, so grave a penalty as disfranchise- | ment should be inflicted upon them. — lie: should bear in mind that riches of- j teu iak3 unto themselves wings and \ I fly away, and titut some time in the j future, he may have the misfoitune to j be placed in the same category so far as money is concerned with the men whom he wants disfranchised. iu! look at it in another light. Mr. | Sculi and the party to which he be- ! longs, insist upon conferring the right of franchise upon every negro by the j operation of the Fifteenth Am nd ! meat. But, says some one, the right of suffrage may be r< strieted by prop- ! erty qualifications, &c. True, it may be under the Fifteenth Amendment,' as to white men, but not as to negroes. I Their right to vote "shall no; be a* bridged," under any circumstances.— ! Is it better to be a poor, but intelligent ! white man, or a Guinea negro? Would Mr. Scull and hi- party have the kind ness to explain? DEMOCRATS w ill take supreme de- J light in attending the elections next fall to observe with what grace lb pun- j lieans will vole alongside of Negroes, j As Democrats have always predicted that Negro Suffrage was near at hand, and as Republicans have always denir d it, the former will go to the polls like men, feeling that they have btc u fully sustained in their predictions; but how will the latter approach the bal lot-box? What sbatne and confusion j of face, knowing that they have been hood winked and betrayed by their • leaders, by whose false promises they were led to deceive their friends and neighbors. AT last the "Filteeuth Amendment" i is to bo represented in the United S.atos Senate. A negro named Revels i lias been elected to represent the State j of Mississippi in that body for the term expiring March 4th, 1871. The \ Radicals are playing a Utile shy of j their "man and brother" and it is e- j ven hinted that further legislation w iil be necessary before the Senators and Representatives of Mississippi w ill be j permitted to take their seats in Con- j gress. It will be remetntiered that the | Radicals managed to keep out Me- I nard, the Louisiana negro, last term, 5 by various pretexts, and it will be seen j now whether they will serve Revels in j the same way. A FEARFUL state of affairs exis's a iong the Texas frontier. The San An ton ia Star says; "Never since the days of border warfaie in Pin gland was a fronteir so ravaged. < )ur settlers, af ter innumerable vain appeals to tie authorities here and at Washington, are now debating the propriety of re pri-a is, and of crossing the line with a strong force into Mexico for the pur jio-e of abating tie Kkkapoo nui sance with fire and theswoid."

Toe w trking-tiien, in council, concocted a Labor Reform party, and nom inated Samuel Flint, an old Free j s filer and an advocate of taxing bonds and paying them in currency, for Gov ernor. B; sides Mr. Flint, their are i now Democratic, Republican, and j Temperance candidates in the field.— i The two new parties get what strength I tiiey have from the Republicans. Tlte Labor Reform mahagers claim to con , trol 8.0 KJ votes.

THE estimates of the impropriations j for the several departments of the Fed- I eral government for the coming fiscal i year, exceed the expenditures of the j last year of Andrew Johnson's admin istration upwards of Fifty Millions of Dollars. This is retrenchment ami re form with a vengeance. During the j canvass of IHbS, the strong card of the supporters of Grant was their promise I of rigid economy in the administra- tion of the government. They will hardly play it again. Daw'lS iins thoroughly punctured the paired up administration of Grant, and let daylight into that inflated con cern. He has exposed the misdoings of bis own party and the Radical fam ily is greatly disturbed thereat. Let there be light, so that the people can see what it costs to have a man at the lead of the government who is a mere Pad in the hands of designing and un scrupulous politicians.

Mr. Far us vvorth, however, took up tileeudgei lor Binghatfi, and delivered a savage philippic against Butler, going ovr his rascally career bofh lie ore and af ter his con v< r-ion to Radicalism. Af ter iii is episode, which creased sume laughter ami more excitement. the consideration of the bill was resumed. Messrs. S. S. Cox and Morgan, on the Democratic side, made vigorous pro test s against the passage of a measure which so unneccs-ariiy degraded the Did Dominion. The Bingham Radi cals expressed their abhorrence of the bill also, tint proposed to vote li r it to avoid keeping Virginia out inlhvcoid any longer. The hill then pa-sed by a strict party vote—l-Mi to 07. In sub s auee it admits Virginia, but pre scribes that tiietest oath shall betaken by the members of the Legislature before their admission to seats, and that the State Constitution shall never tie amended so as to deprive negroes of thesutfiagenr the right to attend the a one schools as whites. The further business of the House consisted in a debate on the outrages of General Terry in Georgia, the presentation of petitions by Mr. Mitogen from 100 citizens of Worcester, Massachusetts, praying for the repudiation of the pub lic di-bt, and the introduction of the following bills: To authorize the peo ple of New Mexico to form a constitu tion and State government prepara tory to admi-sinn as a State; to in crease the number of judges of the Su preme Court ; to regulate the mode of determining the ratification of the constitutional amendment, and to es tablish postal telegraph lines. The Senate debated Mr. Sherman's finance bill, Mr. Sherman and Mr. Ilowe making long sjieccbes. Mr. Wilson introduced a joint resolution to grant a pension of S2.(KM) per annum to Mrs. Lincoln, from the time of her husband's ilealh. Mr. Norton attempted to get in a resolution inquiring into the ar hilary conduct of General Terry in Georgia, hut Mr. Sumner promptly stopped it. W.vsui XOTON , Jan. 26. The finance question was discu-sed at length in the S mate, yesterday. Mr. i enton made a long, rambling speech in which he exhibited no im provement, in his perception of finan cial principles, upon the early mattress days of gushing youth. When he hi d finished, he had succeeded in involv ing himself in the meshes of inpene trab'efog. Air. Sumner called up his amendment to increase the hank circu lation to five hundred millions. Air.

Mr. Sherman's Currency bill occu pied the attention of the Senate yester day until the hour of adjournment. Sumner, Sherman and Thuriuan made elaborate speeches. The new lowa Sen ator, Mr. James B. Hovvel. who wase lected to till the vacancy caused by the resignation of Mr. Grimes, appeared and Was qualified. Among tile peti tions pre.-e ited was one asking for the removal of the capital to Fort Leaven worth, Kansas, and another from 3 2(10 citizen-of New York demanding the ballot for women. The feature of the House was But ler's reply to Dawes' speech and DaWes' rejoinder. Butler was malig nant, personal, aggressive, aid I awes quite as detiaut a- when he first open el his lips against the m mstrous ex travagance of Grant's administration. He declined to he put down or put out, aid promised to give Butler and his C irrupt party another dose at an early d iy.

In the Senate the San Francisco whisky trouble was indefi nitely postponed by a vote of 20 to 15. Tiie Senate continued the debate on the finance bill, the leading speakers being Messrs. llowe, Morton, Morrill, and Sawyer, In the House of Repre sentatives there was a sharp debate on the admission of Charles Porter (Itadi cat)as Representatives from Virginia, it having la-en proved that he was disloyal during the war, and had denounced the saint'd Lincoln as a humbug. The pemocrats made no opposition to the admission, in order to establish a pre cedent for the future. The Radical ex rebel was therefore permitted to have his seat by a vote of l.'M to 5. During the Discussion Me—is. Cox and Wood ward made an eloquent defence of the Democratic party against the Radical aspersion of disloyalty during the war. The House took up the bill abolishing the franking privilege, and passed it by a vote of 174 to 14. It now goes to the Senate where it probably will tie killed. The House proceeding* wound up with Dawes' rejoinder to B. F. But ler, which was listened to by a full and interested audience. Mr. Dawes re stated all his former points, and clinch ed them with facts and figures which thoroughly convict the administration oi all the awful things the Democrats have been charging against it. WASHINGTON, Jan. 29. Mi the United S ate- Senate, ye-ter day, altera discussion, the hill appro priating JoIMMKI, for the reliefof thedi tres-ed darkies of Washinion was pas sed. The Senate also proceeded to de bale Grant's veto of the toil to relieve Rolan While. Another huge railroad grant job was introduced by Mr. How ard. The credent ials of the remaining Virginia Senator, Mr. John;on, were received, and he was sworn in. The House passed, without a divis ion, tne bill abolishing the office of < 'ongressioual Printer, and creating the office of Superintendent of Public Printing. A debate on the Appropri ation bill followed, in which Mr. Voor beesdelivered a greenback speech and Butler made another onslaught upon Dawes. The latter excoriator of the administration came up to the scratch again and refused to take back a word of his denunciations. Today will be buncombe-day in the House. NEWS ITEMS.

Probably never before in the whole history of medicine, has anything wonsowidely andsodeep ly ipon the confidence of mankind, as this excel lent remedy for pulmonary complaints. Through a long seriesof years, and among most of the races of men it has risen higher and higher in their es dotation, as it has become better known Its uni form character and power to cure the various af fections of vhe lungs and throat, have made it known as a reliable protector against them. While adapted to milder forms of disease XDd to young children, it is at the same time the most effectual remedy that can be given for incipient consumption, and the dangerous affections ot the throat and lungs. As a provision against sudden attacks of Croup, it should be kept on hand in ev ery tamiiy, and indeed as all are sometime sub ject to colds and eougns. all should be provided with this antidote for them. Although settled Consumption is thought in curable, still great numbers of cases whire the disease seemed settled, have been completely cured, and the patient restored to s iund health by the Cherry Pectoral, So complete is its mastery over the disorders of the Lungs and Throat, that the most obstiume of them yield to it. When nothing else could reach them, uuder the Cnerry Pectoral they subside and disappear. Singers and public Speakers find great protec tion Irom it. Asthma is always relieved and often wholly cur ed by it. Broncbitls. is generally cured by taking the Cherry Pectoral in small and frequent doses So generally are its virtues known that we neca not publish the certificates of them here, or do more than assure the public that its qualities are fully maintained.

As its name implies it docs Cure, and does net fail. Containing neither Arsenic, Quinine. Bis muth, Zinc, nor any other mineral or poisonous substance whatever, it in no wise injures any pa tient. The number and imj ortauce of its cures in the ague districts, are literally beyond account, and wo believe without a parallel in the history of Ague medicine Our pride is gratified by the acknowledgments we receive of the radical cures effected in obstinate cases, and where other reme dies bad wholly failed Unacclimatcd persons, either resident In, or traveling through miasmatic localities, will be protected by taking the AGUE CUKE daily. For Liver Complaints, arisiDg from torpidity of the Liver, it is an excellent remedy, stimulating the Liver into healthy activity For Bilious Disorders and Liver Complaints, it is an excellent remedy, producing mam truly re markable cures, whereother medicines had filbd.
