Ti Time. .The broad assertion of citizenship anil its attendant franrhiHes wlticu was made in be half of the negroes by the reoont amend menta to the (Joimtitiition is Him ply a basin for practical legislation, by means of which those franchises can be realized. Constitu tional provisions cannot enforce themselves in the absence of statutory provisions, and courts cannot assume jurisdiction or deal with infractions of them except under afllrma tive law. The declarations that slavery shall ' not exist within ttie United States, that all parsons born under Federal jurisdiction are oitizens, and that no citizen shall be denied the right of voting on account of race, color, or previous condition, neoessarily require supplementary legislation to give thorn vitality and practical effect. Moreover, being new concessions by the States to the Federal Government, Congress had no right, ex pressed in the Constitution, to logislate with regard to them, and hence the necessity of the clause appended to each of the new amendments, reciting that "Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appro priate legislation." The resistance to the fifteenth amendment, by refusing to register negro voters in Ohio and California, and the spirit of intimidation which has been exhibited in various localities at the South, demonstrate the immediate necessity for action upon the part of Con gress. We are glad tosee that action has already been had, and that the Judiciary Commit tee of the House have agreed upon a strin gent bill which will soon be brought forward, and we hope passed. It is a substitute to the bill previously introduced, and which was thought to be objectionable. It provides, in substance, that any officer who ahull officially deny the right of any citizen to vote, on ac count of race, color or previous condition, at any election, shall be adjudged guilty of a misdemeanor, and be punished by imprison ment not less than one, nor more than three years, or by a fine of not less than $500, nor more than $5000, or by both fine and im prisonment. , , The bill also declares colored citizens enti tled to vote upon precisely the same terms and conditions as whites, and that any per son who shall prevent them by force, fraud, or intimidation, or who shall refuse to assess or levy or collect a tax of colored citizens in States where the payment of taxes is a quali fication of electors, or shall refuse or neglect to register colored voters, or to receive his vote when legally offered, shall also be' ad judged guilty of a misdemeanor and punished by fine or imprisonment, or both. A penalty of $500 is also imposed for refusing to assess or register any negro entitled to vote, which shall be paid to any person who shall bring suit therefor; and a similar penalty for re fusing to receive the vote of any such voter, to be sued for and recovered by the elector so refused. Jurisdiction is conferred upon the United States Circuit Courts in suits for f or . . f eitures and penalties, and concurrently upon Circuit and District Courts in proseoutions for the punishment of misdemeanors specified in tne act. The bill Is very carefully drawn, and is evi dently intended to cover every phase of re sistance to the principle involved in the re cent constitutional amendments. When it shall beoome a law, whioh we trust will speedily be the case, we shall cease to hear of faotional opposition, and partisan preju dice against negro suffrage will speedily die out botn JNorm ana outn. LETTER-WRITING. From the y. T. World. v. When Clio sits down at ber desk, in the midst of tinted stationery and ivory-handled pens and alluring ink-jars, and begins epis tolary communion with remote Polyhymnia, she naturally does not forebode that her un reserved communings shall become the sport ox cnance, and be published abroad for the perusal of mankind. She is, therefore, less reserved and reticent than she would be if , she knew that the universe was to ba the recipient of her epistle. Out of the ful ness of her heart she writes, and she pro bably says a good many things which, ap propriate enough for the eye of friendship, are apt to embarrass both writer and reel pient when they glare upon them from the broad daylight of the printed page. It is v) not that the sentiments ot Vlio are in any way objectionable, or that she lets out any aangerous or compromising secrets, but that the private communings of friend with friend, ' like the household converse of husband with ' wife or" the secret and moonlit colloquy of lover and mistress, are not intended as public outgivings, and they lose their grace and appropriateness when they lose their privacy, as the violet loses its sheen and lustre when it is drawn from the shade in which it blooms to the full blaze of the sunshine. Who would like to see his love-letters printed. and the phrases of endearment with which be wooed the lady of his love made the sport of ribald youth and unromantio middle age; the jibe of hardened bachelors and the derision of elderly maids who had long outlived the peril of such amatory solici- tations ? To a lover of becoming sensibility suoh a calamity would bring grief beyond the assuagement of speech or tears,- Nothing would be left him except to put dust upon his head and lock up his writing-desk for ever. And yet the love-letters might be good ones. They miaht be brimful of fantastio superlatives and odorous of callow adoration But the world coarsely translates the iinpeta ous gushings of individual emotion, and it would be likely to laugh at the lover s rhapso. dies, and think his allusions to the moon and other heavenly bodies absurd. . No one who writes love or other letters can be entirely sure that they may not some time be brought forth and read by rude attorneys in open court, or printed by merciless editors tiud commented on by unsympathizing readers far and wide. Nobody is exempt from the danger of a lawsuit, and nobody's letter is free from the liability of some time being pub in evidence. This being the case, it benooves correspon dents, even in their most intimate moods, to bear in mind the possibility that they may be addressing tne human race instead oi an in dividual, and fashion their letters according ly. When the document is finished, if they are in any aoubt as to how it would loon in print, they might experimentally send it to a newspaper, and, u it stood the test of pub licity to their satisfaction, forward it to its destination; if not, suppress it. This pre caution would render a correspondent tole rably ssfe, but except to refrain wholly from writing there would seem to be no other. The letters thus far made public in the Mcl'ailand trial deserve to rank as epistolary curiosities; but, except as exhibiting a little womanly vanity and a groat deal of womanly . - 1L. a - B a I - warmin ana anecuou on vuo part oi mo titer, tbev are of absolutely no significance. The writer wbs very much in love with her correspondent, and seemed to be ardently desirous to promote what she deemed to be her welfare. Whether she judged rightly or wrongly as to the means of increasing her happiness is beside the question. She evi dently considered Mrs. McForland a suffer ing and an ill-used woman. Mrs. McFar land so considered herself, and it is natural that she should have brought her friends to her way of thinking. A prudent person would have hesitated before counselling a wife to leave her husband, whatever bitterness and misery may have been involved in the continuance of that rela tion. Hut in matters of this sort womon are rarely prudent. They take counsel of their prejudices, their passions, their affec tions. This is as natural to them as breath ing; and if their counsels are indiscreet, or if their affectionate zeal leads their friends into error, it is the motive which animates thorn alone of which we must judge. The severity with which some of the counsel commented upon the letters of Mrs. Calhoun was perhaps to be expected. It is the business ef the lawyer to make mountains of molehills. Sergeant Unztnz aincemea a most sinister implication in Mr. Pickwick's innocent order for chops and tomato sauce. But when a respectable journalist takes these sensoloss animadversions ana preacuas a sermon upon the ethics of private letter-writing, as the Times did on Thursday, we have a right to look for a certain measure of com mon sense ana tairness. it criticises the style and matter of Mrs. Calhoun's letters with as much severity as if they had been written for the public and challenged exami nation and review. It says that they are full of "transcendental rubbish." Why shouldn't they be? Surely a lady may write "rubbish," transcendental or other, to her friend if she chooses without calling down the critical wrath of the limes. It says she "gossips" and "makes mischief all round." This is not true; but if it were it would only be an im peachment of the discretion and good taste of the writer. The publication ot almost any private letter would embarrass the persons who were alluded to in it, and Airs. Ualhoun s ore perhaps no exception to this rule. But the references in them to individuals are none of them unkind or malicious, and. at worst, they betray only that sort of indis creet enthusiasm in which women are so prone to indulge. To found, as the Times does, a general arraignment of the writer upon grounds of this slender sort is, we grieve to say it, absurd. Ihe letters are appropriate subjects of comment only as they relate to the case betore the court. With their lite rary style or personal allusions the 1'iines has nothing to do. They were not written to be criticised, like a leeture or a poem. If the writer were on trial, the contents of the let ters would aid us in forming an estimate of her character. But she is not on trial. Like many other innocent persons, she is acci dentally involved in the publicity of a legal process; and if chivalry had not departed from the bosoms of lawyers and the attio cells of editors they would treat with more Gentleness and justioe a lady whese only fault appears to have been too earnest a fidelity to a friend who does not seem to nave been worthy of her friendship. THE FARCE OF CONTESTED ELEC TIONS. From the If. T. Herald. With all the important publio business nressinff on the House of KeDresentatives. that body has been spending two wnoie days in the partisan work of voting to seats men whom their constituents had eleoted to re main at home. In vain did the chairman of the Committee of Ways and Means object to this interruption of the consideration of the Tariff bill, which has been dragging its slow length in Committee of the Whole for the last fortnight, not counting the time occupied in general discussion. The dominant majority could not resist the demand of party, and the important business of the country had to give way to the petty interests of individuals, First came one of the Louisiana cases, in all of which the theory of the various Republi can claimants is that it the negroes had voted, and voted for them, they would have been elected; and then came a Pennsylvania case, where the sitting member, a democrat, had to give way to his opponent on equally plausible grounds. There are many other cases of like character that are to be called up before the session draws to a close each of them to occupy time which might easily be applied to better purpose. There never was a greater farce in legisla tive bodies than this one of contested elec tions. No matter what their several merits or demerits be, there is but one conclusion inevitably to be reached, and that is that the seat is to be given to the person who is of the politics of the majority. The unfortu nate individual who trains with the minority might just as well yield without a straggle Now and then an unmanageable member will kick over the traces and vote according to his conviction, as the irascible but unstable Bingham did the other day in the Louisiana case; but these eccentricities never affect the general result. And the extraordinary spec tacle is presented, whenever one of these judicial questions is submitted to the House of Representatives, of the facts being inter preted in one way by the members of one party, and in the opposite way by members of the other party. What a high estimate of Congressional purity and independence this state of things is calculated to impress on the public mind ! 'J. here is but one remedy for this abuse and for the systematic contempt of popular elec tions which it brings vth it, and that is for the House to renounce all interference with the matter. Whoever Dresents the proper credentials of election should be admitted to his seat, and if any person oontests his right to it let him do it before the judicial author. ties of the State. If the Governor of a State gives a certificate of election improperly that question should be tested there, not in wash ington. The courts are the proper forum for the adjudication of the question, and to them it should be remitted. The present system is nothing but a gross partisan trampling on private and publio right. What member will be honest enough to initiate a meaSure that will put an 'end to it and restore some little confidence in the finality of popular elections? Learning; to Cook. A new mania has sprung up among the Edinburgh ladies not quite a useless one a fancy to learn to cook. Several of the lea J ing confectioners advertise "cooking taught," and have large kitchens and bakeries titled up for the purpose. Until reoently the classes have only been attended by young ladies who will probably find the use of the practice when they become wives and mothers; but lately the desire to achieve wonders in the culinary department has spread to those who, in all probability, will never see the inside of their own kitchens when they oome ' to rule a household, and dainty damsela put off their silk attire, their rings, and their adorn ments, and, donning linen dresses and white aprons, become for the nonce amateur oooks. One confectioner goes the length of having blouses prepared for bis students exactly similar to the costumes worn by eccentric artists. Internal Revenue Stump ('an celler. To the Kditor of The Evening Telegraph. A communication appeared in the rress a few days ago with reference to the authority of Commissioner Poli.no to prescribe stamp can cellers. Section 157, act July IS, 18(W, is quoted. That section reads, In part, "that tho Commissioner of Internal Revenue bo and ho Is hereby autho rized to prescribe such method, etc. Is the language "suoh method capablo of a construction to mean mors than one method f Can the Commissioner prescribe several different methods T He has prescribed "Wheeler's," "Holt's," and "Chamberlain's," and, It Is under- t-tood, has agreed to approve several other "cancellers." Now, as he has approved of three distinct and pcparate methods, and is about to approve of other methods, which one of all these will he require the 'imperative" use of? The.lattor part of the section roforred to roads, "And ho is further authorized, in his discretion, to make tho application of such method imperative upon the manufacturers of proprietary artlclos, or articles included in schedule C, and upon stamps of a nominal value exceeding twenty-five cents each." If "Whcoler's" is purchased to-day, will not "Holt's" be imperatively required to morrow ? And when "ilolt's" Is purchased to morrow, will not "Chamberlalu's" be impera tively required next week ? And if there is to bo an uncnumerated variety prescribed, may not "his discretion" by May 1st prescribe that none of them shall bo used: and, like the "Klsh book," they all be consigned to the "tomb of the Capulets ?" As stamps upon documents of value, such as deeds, bonds, etc., must be legally cancelled, It bocomcs a very nico 'question, What will bo the legal form of cancellation, after April 30, upon such stamps ? As the law will only require tho uso ot "such method" upon stamps "of a nominal value ex ceeding twenty-flvo cents each" (we refer to schedule B, which is tho schedule for documen tary stamps), why has not the Commissioner seen fit to exercise "his discretion," and required an "imperative use of "such method" upon such stamps, so that tho public might know exactly what form ot cancellation was legally required, and no doubt be cast, hereafter, In any leal tribunal, upon the form of cancellation. This is very Important; and every buyer of realty, purchaser of mortgage, or other title or eccurity, wants to be assured of a certainty In the premises. Let the Commissioner try his hand at thl mat ter once more, and see If he cannot make a clean thing of it. The Commissioner says these cancellers "may be used," or else stamps when used must be cancelled by writing tho initials of the user and the date when used thereon. This is alternative, and contrary to law. The new method must bo a 'substitute for" or an "addition to the method now prescribed by law" so reads section 157. "Wheeler," "Holt," and "Chamberlain" ought now to go into part nership and issue the most profitable stamp canceller, withdrawing tho others; else they will simply cut one another's throats, and that would be cancelling tho cancellers. . We think this suggestion of ours a good one, because tho public can afford to pay better for one good thing than be obliged to pay for five or six cheap things that are good for nothing. These gentlemen should each now send you a long advertisement. FINANCIAL. S I L V E R On hand and FOR SALE In amounts and sizes to SUIT.
