In Congress.on the 10th day of April. 1871, Mr. Hale moved a suspension of the rules to pass a bill for the removal of legal and political disabilities impos: ed uuder the third section of the four teenth artlule of amendments lo the Constitution of the United States. The exceptions were : Members of Congress, ollicers'of the army and navy-,and mem bers of State Conventions which adopt ed ordinances of seccssiou. Mr. Sprague, the Radical candidate for Congress in this District, voted against suspending the rules, but they were suspended, aad the bill passed by 134 yeas to 46 nays, notwithstanding Mr. Sprague's opposition. Let our readers remember that Mr. Sprague op posed Amnesty, by his vote, after the war had been over six years. That's part of Mr. Sprague's record indorsed by tfie Radicil . Congressional Convention that assembled at Marietta ou the 8th day of August. PCBL1C LAUDS. Mr. Hawley, of Illinois, on April 10, 1871, in Congress, had the Clerk read the following : "Z it Resolved, &c. , That from and after the passage of this act all the pub lic lands of the United States shall be withdrawn from the market, and there after they shall be disposed of only un der and by virtue of the homestead and pre cmption laws, except so far as they may be from time to time granted by Congroe8 for the purposes of education ; Provided, That nothing herein contain ed shall prevent the location of college scrip and land warrants, nor the fulfill ing upon the part of the United States of any existing contract or agreement." Tho question was upon suspending the rules and passing the bill. Mr. Sprague, the Radical candidate for Congress in this District, voted 'No,' aud by his opposition aided in prevent ing a suspension of the rules and the passage of the bill. The passage of the . bill would hare resnlted in saving the public lands to the people to settle upon. Tut defeat of the measure w3 favor able to the schemes of the Radical Land Grabbers and speculators, upon whose side Mr. Sprague voted.wnd the Conven tion that renominated him indorsed his vote upon that measure, which was in direct opposition to the interests of his constituents and the people generally. REfESl'C REFORM. In Congress, on the 10th day of April, 1871, Mr. Parker, of New Hamp shire, had tho Clerk, read the following resolution: '- Resolved , That the tariff should be bo reformed as to be a tax for revenue only, and not for the protection of class interests at the general expense. Mr. Sprague voted "No" oa the de mand for the previous question. On motion to refer the resolution to the Committee of Ways and Means, where it could be buried by the Protec tionists, Mr. Sprague voted "Aye," and it was referred by 98 yeas to 78 nays. Our readers will please remember that the Radicals of this District are on the record indorsing Mr. Sprague's Con gressional Record. That record is against the interests of trie working men and in favor of the Protectionists, Land Grabbers, Carpet Baggers ; Bayo net Rule, and with Grant's corruption policy generally. LET FOREIGNERS REMEJIRER. On the 23d day of December last Mr. Morgan, of Ohio, offered the following resolution, but the Radicals refused to suspend the rules to allow its consideta tion : ::"WnEKEAS, Political equality is the true basis of republican institutions, and whereas all the citizens of the United States under the Constitution, as amen ded, without regard to race, color, or previous condition, arc eligible 'to the offices of President and Vice President, except naturalized citizens, who are alone excluded ; therefore, be it " Resolved, &c. That the following ar ticle bo submitted for ratification by tho Legislatures ol the States, and when ratified by three fourths of them, said article shall be declared to be a part of the Constitution of the United States : ARTICLE - ,:Sectiov . Naturalized citizens who have attained . the age of thirty five years, and have resided fourteen years in the Uuited -States, arc hereby declar ed eligible to the offices of President and Vice President." . ; W P. Sprague, the Radical candidate for Congress voted agaivtt a suspension of the rules aud tho resolutiou was-de-fealed. - ..:. THE TARIFF. Now that the reduced Tax and Tai iff Law of the present Congress has gone into operation, we want the People to consider closely whether tbey can afford to maintain aud perpetuate a system which levies such an enormous toll on the every day necessaries of life as the following : EEPrCED TARIFF OF ACGIST 1, 1872. Per cent Article. of Duty. Jlobirry, U8 Blanket. . . 109 Calico, fit Spool Thread, So Woolen Caps, 70 Cotton Sheeting and Shirting, unWeaohcd. 51 Oarpcta, Ingrain and Three-ply, T4 Woolen Tarns, 4 Balmoralr, M Iteliiia, 2 roplins, 81 Flannols. 113 Hats of Wool, 101 Ready-made Clethinj, - 45 Earthen ware, 40 rocket-knirps, Soup. - ,4S Sugar, 38 Molassrs, 85 Rife, M Salt, in bulk, 3 Salt, in bags, & After fiis. let any man prate of the bcneticcncj of the tariff reductions of the present Congress if he dare. Here j are twenty staples on which the- compul sory tax levied by the reduced' tariff is seventy per cent. Luxuries, however.are cheaper. Our beneficent rulers have ad- hi &i and r'uaajOn.V-.i'sM' S taand : coffee to t!ic free list, but have so fixed ! matters that the total average taxation is only 40 per cent , while tho list of arti cles above cited draw seventy per cent, out of the pockets of the people. The Radical Congressional Convex- tion which assembled at Marietta on the 8th nit., and renominated Hon. William P. Sprague,endoised his vote in favor of the above cxhorbitant duties upon the articles enumerated. The laws ot this Government, reader, are made by a Congress elected by the People Whose fault is it that the pres cut Congress has made or maintained laws that perpetuate such outrageous in- j I iquities as these? Wliowe fault will it I j be. if tho Congress to ba chosen this j j fall shall perpe'uate them ?

We commend the following brief speech, delivered ou the 21th ult., to the People everywhere: "Shall the sword devour forever ? was the anxious cry of a Hebrew prophet in the midst of his country's desolation. Here otaud I to day, an American citi aon, to ask the same question, and plead for the cause of reconciliation and peace. We do not propose to pay for emancipa ted slaves. We do not propose to pay rebel pensions. Our purpose is plainly set forth in the Cincinnati platform, and he who runs may read. We have no army, no Treasury, no official patronage behind us. Look around you. Are not the office holders everywhere through out the country engaged rather iu re electing the President than in attending to their official duties? Yet we trust that the people of this common nation ality will give us a great, generous tri umph a triHtr.ph which will be brought with the shedding of no tears, and over which the hearts of the widow and or phan will not weep " The Radicals gnash their teeth at ap peals for Peace. They are opposed to "clasping hands across the bloody chasm made by the war."

On the 21st ult , at the Prospect Park Grounds. New York,Dutcbn!au's famous time of threa miles in 7 32.1. thirty three years ago, was beaten by Huntress. Attempts to perform the distance in less time have heretofore been made by General Builflr timn, 7.34 ; Flora Tern pie tiaio. 7 33, and by Dexter, but all failed. What adds to the wonderful per formance of Huntress over Dutchman is the fact that the mare trotted in harness, while Dutchman trotted under saddle and was ridden by the great horseman, Hiram W oodrnff. The following is the detailed time: Fjrst quarter, 36J; half mile, 1 12; three quarters, 1 1 ; mile,'2.28J ; mil and a quarter, 3.05 ; mile and a half, 3 40 ;mile and three quarter, 4 17 J ; two miles, 4.54J; two miles and a quarter, 5.31 : two miles and a half, 6.06$; two miles and three quarters, 6 44 ; three miles, 7.21$. Bogus Ticked. Watch for them on Tuesday, the 8lh int. Anything to save Sprague, the Radical candidate from defeat, is the Radical motto in this District Item Concerning the Radical Caudidate for Congress. From the Morgan County Democrat, 20th ult "Sprague said, "I suppose I voted to pay Gen. Longstreet his 830,000 yearly saiary ; if I did, I will not go back on it.' How about pensioning rebel soldiers ? 830,000 is a big pension to a Rebel Gene ral." "Spraguo said that he was willing to extend Amnesty to the South whenever they prove themselves loyal. That if the lebels will vote for Grant & Co., is Sprague's evidence of loyalty." "Spraguo said he had voted for the present high- Protective Tariff and is proud of it. He voted then, by his own admission, to levy a tax of seventy per cent on everything that a man cats, wears and consumes." These extracts are from an attempt of Mr. Stoagce's to make a speech, in which he tried hard to back out from his Con gressional Record. It is damaging him all over the District. Again.

Mr lQ,vUy cM o(. gaj(( . Greeley being Fellow Citizens: You see befor vou one wiio Ls just now the object of much vituperative, denunciation. It is pro claimed that I have been a secessionist, know nothing, and even negro trader. Whatever seems likely to produce prje udice against me is freely uttered with out any regard lo the truth. I have been repeatedly asked to refute the'on lumnies, but have thought it best not to attempt to do so, inasmuch as any de nial 1 might make would fail to silence the tongue of slander. I am one of those who believe that political parties ought not to be permit ted to exist long in a government such as ours, that iliey should flourish and pass away when they have subserved tho et( purpose tor which they have been croa- I do not believe that this country would continue to flourish long under tho oYidusivfi domination of any noliti- cal 'party. Scheming and corrupt pod- ticians are sure to seize upon the organ izations of political parties. Thev soon lean) to run the machine, as they say, i and they take good care to run it so that ail the ou runs into their pockets. I trust that we shall see frequent chan ges of parties in this country. What we most need just now is that independ ent spirit which leads men in their love of country to rise superior to all preju dices of political associations and all ties of party. I am free to confess and in no way ashamed to admit that my party associa tions are not the same now as they were some years ago The dangers which threatened our nation in the past are gone. We struggled and suffered to gether to preserve the union of these States, and not in the next hundred years 'will any attempt to divide it b,e made. What we need now is such a Government as will enable all parts of the country to reap the fruits of the vie toiy. We want genuine peace and com plete restoration of fraternal relations. It is time for us to forget the animosities engendered bv the war, and to kindle.in- stead of these baleful passions, a feeling of universal love. It is time for us to invite those who stood opposed to us to a seat around the common table. lucre is room enough. I am in favor of re-enfranchising all. Having done this, having buried the dis cords of the past, let us see if we can not do away with the corruption which prevails so largely in our local State and national governments. This is the great work now set before us It is for you to say through what instrumentality this can be accomplished. Amidst tremendous cheers he bowed to the people and proceeded westward. Sir. Greeley was received at Harris b irg bv an immense crowd. After pro longed cheering, and quiet having been restored, he delivered the following speech : Fellow-Citizens of Harrisbueg: Scarcely had the last guns from the great civil war ceased to reverberate over the hills of Virginia, when my voice was raised earnestly, if not loud ly, in favor of forbearance, mercy, am nesty and reconciliation Great ap plause 1 felt that there had been bloodshed enough, devastation enough ; that it was now time for a manifestation of the spirit of Ilearen-born charity. I remember the dying injunction of the great King David, that vengeance should be wrought on his chief officer, Joab, because he had shed the blood of war in peace. I would have no blood of war shed in peace, nnd would have not a drop of human blood shed unless absolute necessity should dictate so. Then in that early day, when the coun try was highly infuriated by the .assas sination of its President, I dared speak when there were very few to hear on the side of forgiveness. Time passed on, and at different times I was required, it seemed, to give the same testimony. I happen now to be a candidate, very unexpectedly to myself, mostly because of these early utterances. They, more than anything else, created for me an influence which made mc a candidate for your suffrages. I use theso words now because, fellow-citizens, I may some time be re quired to speak in popular truths, and I wish you to feel what truth to day re jects, to-morrow or next will welcome. I stand before you my friends the candidate of universal amnesty. I fought tbc battle of impartial suffrage until the victory was won, and now I demand the pledge of the National Government that every man now . dis franchised be relieved by perfect am nesty. Applause. We had a dear promise of that am nesty in the platform of the Republican party of 1868. That promise has not yet been performed. I stand here to demand that it shall be. Great ap plause. If I could assure the success of am nesty better by ceasing to to a candi date, I would gladly do so. I desire only that our disfranchised, proscribed fellow-citizens may be welcomed back under the 'folds of the national flag, which in an unwise hour tbey deserted ; that they shall be welcomed back, not as penitents, but as fellow-citizenis who, having seen tho error of their ways, and having renewed their allegiance in faith to their country, shall be treated like every man white or black, in this country. Do is a citizen simply, and only on that platform, and with that purpose, I stand before you ; and, fellow citizens, be cheered by the truth that victory be longs to us. National hatred, bitter thoughts of rebellion, and all these things, must necessarily die away, and dying, make the echoes feebler. Tbc day cannot be far distant when we shall rejoice in a restored national ity , so universal, so perfect, that there shall be no man under the flag of the American nation who is not perfectly protected beneath its folds. Applause. In that phrase, in that spirit I bid vou, friends and fellow citizens, a kind ly and affectionate farewell. Vocifer ous applause and prolonged cheers. 5Keep a sharp watch for bogus tickets.
