I The passage of the fifteenth amendment I called together last night in the Bethel church, | Sullivan street, (Rev. Mr. Turpin's.) a very ft" crowded meeting, which was addressed by Revs. 5 William F. Butler and Charles Ray and Dr. J. |( E. Snodgrass.

V. Herald. l| At the meeting of colored citizens of Brook|j lyn, in the Bridge-street Methodist Church, to || consider the most feasible plan to celebrate the || adoption of the fifteenth amendment, Dr. Ray, || the chairman, introduced Mr. George W. Bun| gay, wh*o said that the fuur millions of persons I honofittad hv the amendment were in<lehto<t under Providence, to the men of ideas and the men of deeds for that advanced step in civilization. During the war the negro vindicated hia courage, his patriotism, and his manhood, by striking a Wow for the liberty of his race, and he showed plainly that he was entitled to all the privileges of citizenship. Having raised himself so high in the scale of advancement, let him seek opportunities to improve his mind and his condition in life, and give a good account of himself in the school and at the savings bank. Let him shun the tyrant rum, and not voluntarily surrender himself to a habit which might make him the slave of appetite. Voting will not make him independent without industry, nor moral without the practice of virtue, nor a good citizen without integrity. Justice is now really blindfolded, so that it can see no distinction of race or color. At the close of the address, which lasted upward of an hoar, Mr. Downing said that Senators Revels and Fenton, Lieut Gov. Woodford, Gen. Rosecrans, and other distinguished citizens, had consented to address the grand mass meeting soon to be held.?.V. V. Tribune.

The Force, Effect and Eaten! or the Fifteenth Amendment. Tkentok, N. J., April 2, 1870. To the Editor of the New Era: It is claimed and maintained by some of the opponents of the Fifteenth Constitutional Amendment, and admitted by some who are in favor ofit, that the operation of the amendment extends no farther than to the election of United States officers, and that those who are prohibited the exercise of the right of suffrage, by State law, will still be denied the right to vote for State, county, or municipal officers. The wish is doubtless father to the thought." This is a clear and correct statement of the point assumed by these strict constructionists of the United States Constitution. The language of the amendment is clear and explicit, and its phraseology is without qualification ; and yet they gravely urge, as a provisional restriction of it, article tenth of the Constitution, ?L:.L J. *i i.'pu? ,i .i.j i. WU1UU I CftUO lilUB. M. UC UUL UUiCgtllCU iU the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." This, they held, gives the power to the States to regulate the right of suffrage within their own borders ; and hence, the fifteenth amendment cannot, and doe* not apply to the State or charter elections. The absurdity of this position is palpable on its face ; for, if the law regulating the right of suffrage in the State is rendered inoperative in one particular, it is inoperative in every other particular. Again?the Constitution of the United States grants to Congress the right and power to give to each State a Republican form of Government; and wheu any State is AntiRepublican in form?Congress being judge?it is the duty of Congress, to provide such an one*--which is the specific object of this amendment, and which destroys the validity of all laws proscribing the citizens of the United States in the exercise of this right. The language of the amendment reads thus : ' The right of the citiaens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States, nor by the States, on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude." It does not prescribe for whom those votes shall be cast, nor at what elections. The logical sequence then is, that the right to vote shall not be denied or abridged at any election. If it waa intended that the amendment should con > fine itself to United States officers only, it would hare said so. Again, it is a well-known and established principle in common law, that what is not ex- I pressly forbidden must be allowed. In other words, what is not prohibited bylaw is grauted. The law of a State cannot, and does not, annul j the supreme law of the land?on the contrary, j all laws on the statute book of a State, contra- < vening the supreme law of the land, become ; nullities, as was the case when the civil rights bill, and the fourteenth constitutional amendment were passed. A number of the States, viz : Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, j Maryland, and Delaware, had on their statute books laws refusing colored men their oaths, (when one of the parties was a white person,) and imposing other restrictions and proscriptions upon them. These laws were nullified ; j and it required no subsequent legislation on the part of the State to render these acts effective. The passage ef the fourteenth amendment and the civil rights bill was as much a violation of State rights (so-called) as the fifteenth amendment. The truth is, it is only a bug-bear got up for the occasion, to induce weak-kneed Republicans (alias conservative Republicans) to join in a crusade against the colored man to prevent his going to the polls at their State and -l * -1 --j.: j r_? uuunci ciccwuiis j uuu iuus prcveuw tucui iruui holding offices in the State, and electing men who would rightly represent them. Oh! "it is unconstitutional,"?the same old cry. "The Constitution!" when they were sympathizing with the rebels, who had set the Constitution and laws at defiance by waging war against the Government of the United States, with the avowed object of overthrowing its supremacy, and perpetuating the system of American slavery. It is a significant fact, that, whenever and and wherever you hear the shriok, "The Constitution ! the Constitution!" it is only a development of negro hate. It is against negro equality. They attach more sacredness to the Constitution than they do to their Bibles. They either know better, or else are oblivious to all right feelings and impressions. Should any be misled by this State rights clamor, it is well enough to undeceive them, disabuse their minds of their false impressions, and let them know that, if it was a violation, the National Legislature would have seen it. and not passed it. Are these cavillers wiser than Congress ? Again : When Congress has, according to article five of the Constitution, submitted to the States the amendment, and they by threefourths of their Legislatures have adopted it, and the amendment is officially announced, it becomes the supreme law of the land, and is universal in its application and operation. This being done, the States which have refused the ratification of this amendment had better quietly and magnanimously submit to it, for there is no virtue in contending for a point when there is no possibility of gaining it. Besides, if there is any technicality about it, there is another universally recognized principle in the common law, that " technicalities must always be construed in favor of human rights, and never against them." The ground-work of all these objections is prejudice against the colored man. It is not because there is a right so sacred that it should be thus jealously guarded but political equali-1 ty with the white man in the Government is the difficulty. Why fear the colored man? The whites have two hundred and fifty years the start in moral and intellectual development. They claim to be the superior race?why any apprehension ? Xo, no; it is not fear on the part of many ; it is prejudice, so deeply rooted and grounded that it cannot be uprooted or dislodged in a few yean, although the revolution of public sentiment has gone on with wonderful rapidity. But this is an exhibition that the tail of the serpent still lives, even after its power is destroyed. Just so with the enemies of impartial suffrage, they still live ; but, thanks be to God ! the sting of the serpent is extracted. We had two colored men to vote in Perth, Amboy, at the charter election, on Thursday 21st instant. Another election is held on Tues; day next in Princeton ; and, I am informed, application is made by one hundred and forty colored citizens to Judge Field, of the Supreme Court of the State (who lives in Princeton) to i decide as to their right to vote. IIow he will decide 1 know not. Charter election takes place in Trenton on Monday, April 11. I mean to vote according to my understanding, nnd so will others, Judge Field's opinions to the contrary notwithstanding. liopiog that all may make a wise arid judicious use of this right, I subscribe myself, yours, in behalf of human progress, W*.

The ques- i tion of annexation to Spain, which was discussed during two years, was carried by only 4,000 votes. Cabrels election, in I860, wa3 effected through universal suffrage by a majority ol 4,300 votes ; but the vote in favor of annexation to tho United States, which was taken in less I than a fortnight, without any kind of interfer-' ence on the part of the government or the pre- ! sence of a single soldier, was decided by a majority of more than lt>,000. with an opposition of only two per cent.

Letter from Stiv York. New YorkCitv, March 29, 1870. To the Editor of the New Era: Things are working. Matters of great pith and moment are of such constant daily occurrence as hardly to awaken an oxolain.ition of wonder or surprise. Events, facts, and fancies crowd so rapidly upon each other that we hardly have time to investigate, ventilate, and admire, as we ought or would like to, before something more startling and wonderful is presented for our consideration. A nine days' wonder is a thing of the past. We all reeollect 44 the days of ancient ages, when men and women rode in stages." Now we have continents spanned with railroads and oceans traversed by telegraphs. As the poet Nasby says, " sich is life." It is reported that Alexander the Great cried because there were no more worlds to conquer ! Excelsior is our motto. Thus runs the world along. Our city of Gotham feels proud (justly perhaps) of its high moral, social, and political position. New York to-day has a population of nearly a million people. She considers herself a representation or an epitome of the world at large, as well as all the rest of mankind. Our neighboring city of Brooklyn is justly styled 44 the City of Churches," having nearly live hundred places of worship, or one for every two thousand of its population. In a city of such magnitude, crime as well as virtue prevail*. We have now ten or eleven murder cases awaiting trial. Yes, and last year the city contributed over one hundred suicidal maniacs. Our riDgs are numerous. We have the gold ring, the whisky ring, the political and various other rings, only accessible to the initiated. We have had stnpenduous election frauds, and, as singular as it may seem, live or six | Democratic defrauders have been actually con| victed in Brooklyn. Hon. John Morrissey, M. 0., is a power with I the law-makers at Albany?more so than at I Washington. r" A party left our city for Central America, in advance of the Government expedition recently fitted out to ascertain the feasibility of a ship canal across the Isthmus of Darien, thus cut| ting off some fourteen thousand miles in our water transit with California and the eastern continent. I Last week a vessel left our port with over fifty emigrants for Hyde County Park Co operative Settlement, in North Carolina. Immigration at the rate of one thousand per day still continues, with prospect of great increase as the season advances. It has recently come to light, that the Panama railroad pays the Government of Bogota the annual sura of $250,000 for the use of the land across the Isthmus by said railroad. Our city Medical College last week conferred the degree, or diploma, of M. D. on Misg Susan M. Smith, a colored lady of Brooklyn. In Missouri, recently, a lady was admitted attorney at law, and with lady jurors in Wyoming, women voters in Utah, lady barbers in Pennsylvania, who will venture to say that the world does not move? Spring?the Almanac says?is upon us, but winter going still "lingers in the lap of spring," much to the joy of our ice men. Must not overlook our female brokers, who have received more gratuitous advertising than any other like firm in the city. Long may they flourish. The papers here are noticing your movements looking toward a territorial government. Without giving details or particulars, our experience here in this city warrants us in saying, that every measure of economy, retrenchment, or reform always results in increased taxation. The legitimate drama here, as elsewhere, is a success. Booth, at his Temple of Histrionic Art, has played Hamlet twelve weeks in succession, while his returns to the Revenue Department are the largest of any theatre in the city. Yours, Ac., II.

'rospectiu of tlie National Labor Union anil ! Bureau of Labor of the United States of America. ' 'tllow Citiznu and Workinffmcn */ the United States : The qu"gtioi of the hour is. How can the workingman est improve Ids condition ? This question is not only being 1 gitated in the United States, but throughout the civilized t orld. The un iversal law of onr existence is: "In the sweat j ftliy face thoti shalt eat thy bread." We desire to impress oil with this fict, tiiat it is a lbvine law, that we must laior, and that the comforts of life can only be attained by ioiiest, patient toil. It should he the aim of every man to become a capitalist; j hat is, every n an should try and recoivo ati exchartge for lii> abor, which, by proper economy and investment, will, in > he future, plat c him in the position of those on whom lie is iow dependent for a living. At least it should be your aeliration to become the owner of your own homestead and dace that horn *stead beyond the reacli of want and poverty Is workmgmeii we can only possess these blessings by being iidustrioiis with our brains and hands, temperate in our I i&bits,and economical with our means. It is the dutj of our National Labor Union, and more pariculariy tho Bureau of Labor treated by your delegates asetabled from nearly every State in the Union, to advise with 'ou upon the best and most speedy means to better your ondilion in the United State*. Me look witt painful euiotious upon the present condition ' if colored labor in tho several States. Disorganized, poorly | iaid. assaulted, and, in many cases, totally indifferent to its j iwu welfare. After a careful suryey and consideration of \ his vital question, in which we have consulted tho wisdom md experience of the most profound economists and labor I eformors of our times? We Mil vise von. lit . to imniedintelv organize, hprmise labor an only protect itself when orgauized ; that is, by Iteing or;anized thoroughly, you have the command of capital. You eceive better pay tor your labor. Yon learn where and how o invest your labor to betb*r advantage. You learn the 1 alue of the capital invested with your labor?how to respect i hat capital, an J make that capital respect your lal?or. You t earn how an 1 where to create employment, to give your- [ elves work w ten you are debarred by opposite combinaions. You lei.rn the wants of your fellow workmen and tow to provido for them. In a word, without organization, you stand in danger of >eing exterminated. You cannot expect to be profitably unployed, and the trades will soon die out iu the race. A'ith organization you will lind employment, you will force ipposite combinations to recogni/.e your claims to work without restriction because of our color, and open the way 'or your child!en to learn trades and move forward in the injoyment of all the rights ot American titizcnship. How .hall you organize? We anaw er call a general meeting of the workiugraen in every city and town, and alter discussing he importance of organization, appoint a committee of one "rom each brat oh of trade or label represented, to prepare v plan for ergiuiization. When they have reported a plan, ilieu appoint u nr committee uu constitutionand permanent irgaaizatiou When they report, proceed immediately to form yourselve?into au association, send a copy of your oustitutiou an 1 list of officers to the Bureau ef Labor, and get your charter. We would advise, where there is a sutticent number of any particular branch, that they organize leparate ar-sociitions. As each man desires to follow that business for which he has been educated. As a constitution For the government of a carpenters' association will not >nitfor the govemmeut of a laborers' association, it is important that yo i organize each I ranch separately, five men if any one b> 'Uich organized, can accomplish more iu the interest of that particular branch, than being associated ivith five huudied men of several branches. Mixed organ! cations have al *ays proven disasterous to tho labor reform movement, except iu delegated bodies The above organitaliops referrec to,are simple organizations for the protection of labor an 1 wages. We would call your attention to, and advise, 2nd that you form yourselvis into co-operative Trades Unions. While these are the in jst beneficial associations of modern times, they require m ich judgment,and intellectual ability tomake them a success. They seeui to be a necessity at this time in order to furiish employment to colored men in many States In the Union. We could uot furnish a general plan of argauization. Bach particular association must he governed by special re lea. We can only advise you how to organize, when you infoim the Bureau what you propose to organ ize. We can but say the general principle is, for each man to take a given amount ol stock, and pay that in weekly or monthly installments until they have enough to commence business with, so that, by a combination of their money and labor, they will form a capital and business that will give them uu independent living. In organizations of this kind no restrictions should be placed upou parties investing, be:au?e of their ether relations. Let any man who wi l, take ?n interest with you. 3. We should advise you to organize Building and Land Associations. These can easily be established in connec tion with your ''Trades and Labor Unions," and will have a tendency to strengthen and perpetuate them. Experience has proved that all men can, by the agency ot a well regulated building association, buy a home for what he would pay rent for cue. W, shall be pleased to advise you upon the inost improved plana of organisation. 4. In order to effect a more thorough organization of the colored workingmeu of the United states, and advise and enlighten them upon all questions affecting their interest, and battle with the prejudices manifested because of our peculiar position, the National Labor Convention has adopted the Naw Era, a weekly journal published in the city of Washington, as the organ of the Colored Wurkingmenoi the United States. It shall he our object to keep you informed is to the condition of tho trades in each State, rates of wages, demand for labor, value of real estate, forms of organization, and to meet all quoitions, ualional and local, affecting the iuterest of the workingmeu. The necessity for such s paper is admitted by all whs are the least acquainted with our present disorganized condition, aid as it is barely possible to disconnect our labor and social interest from our political, we shall at ail times, when the necessity demauds, take a decided stand to adviningyou upon ?11 questions that will be to your interest as a race, and to the good of our common country. As we shall have one or more agents, who shall travel in and through all the States to assist you in organizing all the departments of labor, we bope that every man will make himself an ageut to take the paper, and sett that his neighbor has one also, nutil it may bs l^uou in every house m the country. O ir course is onward! Let every man put lxis shoulder to the wheel, and victory and success will perch npon our banners.

As fhankind, from indiscretion or other causes, has been doomed to suffer from disease, so also has a remedy for disease been provided. Our hdls and valleys abound with roots and herbs which, if scientifically rvreparedand compounded, will restore health and vigor to the invalid. To find such a remedy wo should seek one that has stood the test of r.ge. HOOFLAND'S ftUIf.Tl.fV BETTERS, A Sure Cure for Liver Complaint, Sure Cure for Dyspepsia. Sure Cure for Debility. Stirn Pnro for Tonr/^ioo V WM* V 1V1 UUUUUlUCa Sure Cure for Marasmus. And all affections arising from weakness or want of action in the Liver or digestive organs. The great remedy for > IJ1PI 11 E It L O 11 1> ? And all diseases arising from it. The great pre- > ventive of j FEVER AND AGUE. v It is an impossibility for any one to have Fever aud Ague, if they will use a few bottles of this remedy each spring and fall. Sioo Sioo sioo Will be given for any case of this diseaso that occurs to any one that uses tho Bitters or Tonic as a preventative. j Those who have the Fever and Ague will find, after the chills have stopped, that by using a few bottles of the Bitterrs or Tonic, that the disease will not return. These remedies will rebuild their const'tu1 tions faster than any other known remedy. The remedies were placed before the public thirty years ago. with all the prejudice of socalled "patent medicine" operating against them, but gradually their virtues became known, and now. to-day, they stand at the head of all preparations of their class, with the indorsement of eminent judges, lawyers, clergymen, and physicians. IE3I Read the following symptoms, and if you find that your system is affected by any of them, you may rest assured that disease has commenced its attack on the most important organs of your body, and unless soon checked by the use of powerful remedies, a miserable life, soon terminating in death, will be the result. Constipation, Flatulence, Inward Piles, Fullness of Blood to the Head, Acidity of the Stomach, Nausea, Heartburn, Disgust for Food, Fullness or Weight in the Stomach, Sour Eructations, Sinking or Fluttering at the Pit of the Stomach, Swimming of the Head, Hurried or Difficult Breathing, Fluttering at the Heart, v. bolting or Suffocating Sensations when in a Lying Posture, Dimness of vision, dots or websbefore the sight, Dull Pain in the Head, Deficiency of Perspiration, Yellowness of the skin and eyes, I ain in the side, Back,Chest, Limbs, &c.t Sudden Flushes of Heat, Burniug in the Flesh, Constant Imaginings of Evil and Great Depression of spirits, all indicate disease of the liver or digestive organs, combined with impure blood. O HOOFLAND'S GEEUtEJi.V BETTERS is entirely vegetable and contains no liquor. It is a compound of fluid extracts. The roots, herbs and barks from which these extracts are made are gathered in Germany; all the medicinal virtues are extracted from them bv a scientific chemist. These extracts are then forwarded to this country to be used expressly for the manufacture of this Bitters. There is no alcoholic substance of any kind used in compounding the Bitters, hence it is free from all the objections incident to the use of a liquor preparation HOOFLAND'S GEEtJTEJi.V TO A EC o Is a combination of all the ingredients of the Bitters, with pure Santa Cruz Bum, Orange, Ac. It is used for the same diseases as the Bitters, in eases where some pure alcoholic stimulus is required. TESTIMONY Like the following was never before offered in behalf of any medicinal preparation: HON. GEO. \V. WOODWARD, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, writes: Philadelphia, March 10, 1667. I find 'kFIoofland's German Bitters'' is a good tonic, useful in diseases of the digestive organs, IF1 -1and of great benefit in cases of debility and want of nervous action in the system. Yours, truly, GEO. W. WOODWARD. HON. JAMES THOMPSON, Justice of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. Philadelphia. April 26, 18 0. I consider " Hoofland's German Bitters'' a valuable medicine incase of attacks of indigestion or dyspepsia. I can certify this from my experience of it. Your'swith respect, JAMES THOMPSON, IION. GEO. SIIARSWOOD, Justice of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. P hadelphia, June 1, 1868. I have found by experience th t Hoofland's XJ Getman Bitters" is a very good tonic, relieving dyspeptic symptoms almost directly. GEORGE SHARSWOOI). HON. WM. F. ROGERS, Mayor of the city of BuiFalo, New York. Mayor's Office, Buffalo, June 22, 1866. I have used ''Hoofl ind's German Bitters and Tonic " in my family during the past year, and can recommend them as ar. excellent tonic, imf>arting tone and vigor to the system. Tfyeir use las been productive of decidedly beneficial effects. WM. F. ROGERS. IION. JAMES M. WOOD. Ex-Mayor of Williamsport, Pennsylvania. I take great pleasure in recommending ''Hoofland's German Tonic" to any one who may be afflicted with dyspepsia. I had the dyspepsia so 1ST badly it was impossible to keep any food on my stomach, and I became so weak as not to be able to walk half a mile. Two bottles of Tonic effected a perfect cure. JAMES M. WOOD. JOHN EUTERMARKS, ESQ. Law partner of Judge Maynard, Williamsport, Pa. This is to certify that I have used "Hoofland's Germun Bitters" for dyspepsia, and found it an invaluable remedy. CAUT ION.
