DISFRANCHISEMENT IN ALABAMA. ! It has already been announced, by tel egraph, that the majority report of tbe . committee on suffrage was adopted by ' the so-called constitutional convention of Alabama. Those who had hoped that the persons delegated by the Radicals to make a constitution for Alabama would do anything else than obey tbe instruc tions of their Radical masters have been grievously disappointed. The conven- tion have adopted a rule of suffrage more proscriptive even than was necessary for their purposes, and have not had the de cency to cloak their ambitious designs, and their vindictive spirit, under even a thin covering of moderation or justice. ' The tests imposed by the convention disfranchise five classes of persons, four out oi the five being excluded on account of their political opinions, or their par ticipation in the recent war, on the Con ' federate side. These four classes may be briefly described as follows : 1st. All who have violated the naages of war during the "rebellion." So far, no method basbeen provided fur ascertain ing what persons come under this excep tion ; but it is to be supposed that the point will not be left unguarded. There is na such crime known to the law as a violation of the usages of war, and if there was such a crime it would be necessary to fix it upon the accused persons by some legal process. Such an expedient being out of the question, the intention must be to grant to tbe registrars of voters, or to some other officers acting nnder Radical in stractions, the power of excluding those whom they may choose to consider as ' tiaving violated the usages of war. ' After the other sweeping disfranchise ments of the section, this is superfluous ; but it to bave been desigoed ex- press'y to illustrate the contempt of justice and of all tbe settled principle of public liberty, by which thi proscriptive and vindictive parly i characterized. 2.

The Montgomery Mail thinks that, under these clauses alone, thirty thousand citixen. of Ala bama will be disfranchised. - Tbe Mail is mistaken. Fifty thousand would bo nearer the true number.
