Negro Legislation.
The-whole of Congress,
the Ohio Legislature, seems to be
taken up in business fTertaining to
tho "Pree Americans of African
descent," either providing food for
thousands,' by appropriations of
money to be applied to that use,
through freedmens bureaus or other
agencies, or in eflVrts to take the'
lands of the South from the owners
and parcel it out to tho frcedmcn.
This is truth, readers every word
fit, and as a proof of its truth, it
is with shame we have to record
tho fact that a member of Congress
last week, made a motion to appro
priate one day to the transaction of
business for the benefit of white men.
and it was voted down by tho Rad
icals. In Gods name when will
these things cease ?
We have no important business,
in Congress, or the Legislature to
report in consequence of this eter
nal blathering about the niggers

men, Ac-
A Model Radical Congressman.
Benjamin F. Loa.v, one of
radical Congressmen elected from
Missouri by military violence, who
lately voted for negro sutlrage in
the District of Columbia, is thus
noticed by the St. Joseph (Missou
ri) HeralJy an intense radical sheet.
It says, under the caption ''Bur
ied by Charity" that '-Charlotte
Loan, a colored woman of about
twenty-two years of age, died in
this city a few years ago, and was
buried by the charity of the color
ed people. This woman was form
erly the property of Hen. Loan,
who misrepresents this District in
Congress. She had toiled many a
long day without compensation, for
her hnrd-heartpd and e.lnso-fisted
master, and when she came to die,
after a lingering illness, Mr. Loan
allowed her to be cared for and con
signed to her final resting-place by
tho contributions of her poor col
ored friends. Comment is unnec
essary. It is characteristic of the
man. He could take the poor wo
man's earnings for years, until the
emancipation .ordinance- unloosed
her shackles, but never a cent
would ho give to bury her."
Those are the kind of men who
voted for negro suffrage.
We quote the following from the
special dispatch, from Columbus,
to the Cincinnati Enquirer of the
7th inst :
In tho House there was a peti
tion rom Logan County to amend
the Constitution so as to acknowl
edge God, and to form a Christian
This is all right. We do- 't know
of any other County that wants the
acknowledgement of God, any
more than this one does.
The Attempt to Turn Mr. Voorhees
Out of Congress.
We invite tho attention of our
readers to the special dispatch from
Washington regarding Mr. Voon
DEES,which we publish this morn
ing. It shows how party malevo
lence and hatred can struggle
against truth and justice, and how,
to subserve a political end, the
basest act will bo perpetrated by
the party in power.
Mr. Washburxe has no more
right to Mr. VooiuiEEs'scat then Mr.
John Smith has. He wasa candi-!
date at the election, and was beaten
several hundred votes.
His charge of fraud and illegality
is a mere trumped up one, utterly
destitute of plausibility, and yet, in
order to get rid of an able and elo
quent opponent, it will be listened
to, and he probably will be thrust
into a seat the people voted he
should not have !

Why Brevet-Brigadier Baker Was
[Correspondence Richmond Times.]
Government de
tective, General L. C.Baker, ceases
to be a Brig. General with this day.
By the terms of an order from the
War Department his commission
was cancelled on the 15th inst.,and
ho is mustered out of "service." It
should be borne in mind, however,
that the military officers hero dis
claim Baker's right to recognition
as of the military service proper;
since he did not receive his title of
Brigadier General by reason of
meritorious conduct in the lield,nor
on account ot service in the army
of the United States. His "promo
tion" to a brigadiership was the
work of Mr. Stanton, upon impor
tunities of Baker, who asked tho
distinction as a sort of healthy
coveiiivg to hide his disreputable
conduct whilst acting in the capac
ity of chief-thief-catcher, etc., for
the Government. This detective
has had his day; now his trouble

aid the strong arm of the Govern-1
ment to protect him from tho ven-1
geance ol outraged citizens who
have been sufferers in person . and
property from tho unconstitutional
and utterly illegal acts of this man.
Baker had become so impudent,
and felt so entirely secure from the
reach ofifll men, save the Secretary
of War, that he actually attempted
to play the detective upon the Pres
ident and his household some weeks
ago. There is scarcely a doubt,
however, that this last specimen
of indecency and wonderful impu
dence was encouraged, if not sug
gested, bv some of tho President's
"Radieal'friends." The '-Great De
tective" made an utter failure of
his espionage upon the executive
mansion, for it was somehow dis
covered by Mr. Johnson, who sent
a messenger to bring Baker imme
diately into his presence. The de
tective dropped every other consid
eration, and repaired with all haste
to the White House, totally at fault
as to the purpose of this summons
from the President. His name be
ing announced, the President di
rected that he be at once admitted,
notwithstanding the presence of
several gentlemen then engaged
with Mr. Johnson. The latter most
unceremoniously charged Baker
with his villainous espionage, and
informed him that if he again heard
of bis presence in or prowling atjout
tho White House, or if he permit
ted any of his creatures to sneak
around tho premises, the ''Great
Detective" should himself lodge in
some or.e of the dingy cells in tho
Old Capital where so many had
been incarcerated upon the simple
order of Baker himself, without war
rant, or tho Ecniblanco of law or
The "Great Detective" was amazed
at what ho heard, and remained
speechless while the President
scored him. Upon tho President's
command, "Go sir 1" Baker hastily
moved toward the door ; but before
he quite arrived there, Mr. Johnson
added: "Hold one moment, sir. I
desire that you now go to the Sec
retary of War, and tell him every
word I have said to vou ; and (shak
ing his finger at him) don't you i
ever let me see vou here again."
The "Great Detective" left in
st anter, and has obeyed the last in

[Correspondence of the Cincinnati Enq.]
COLUMBUS February 1.
I telegraphed you last night
about the startling rumors in re
gard to the Treasury, and -of drafts
being drawn and not paid. The
causes which led. to this disgrace
ful state of affairs are thus given :
The Auditor refused to put upon
the tax duplicate of the State sev
eral millions of dollars in 186-1,
authorized by the State Legisla
ture. Fearing to go before the
people in the election with the
enormous amount which was ac
tually necessary to run the State
Government, and on that account,
as the funds provided were not
sufficient to defray the general ex
penses of the State, they have been
using up the usual ballances until
they are exhausted.
State bonds, due and unpaid,
have been accumulating and their
payment staved oE On yesterday,
bonds to the amount of half a
million were presented and could
not be paid, for, in consequence ot
criminal carelessness somewhere,
no funds could be had to meet
them. This alarmed the State Aui
ditor, and on yesterday he called
the Finance Committee of the
House and Senate together and he
made a clean breast of it. He pro
posed to take the Soldier's Relief
Fund, and to use it. Democrats
resented this, and I trust will re
sent it Had all the facts been
known before tho election, Mor
gan would have been Governor
tmd the Legislature Democratic.
"But tho State officials neglected or
refused to do their duty, in order to
hide the true facts from tho peo
ple, in order to retain power by
corrupt means. The expose in the
telegram to the Enquirer, arriving,
as it did, in the midst of the debate,
gave the conspirators to know that
the facts were known, and then,
and not until then, they were par
tially admitted to be true.
Mr. Glover, of Scioto, the first
moment ho could get a chance un
der the rules to do so, presented
the following bill, which, before its
presentation, he had had printed
and numbered in the exact order:
A bill to amend section four of
an act passed April 0, 1SG5, entitled
"an act for (be relief of tho fami
lies of soldiers and marines in the
State and United States service,
and of those who have died or been
disabled in service. (O. L. 02, p.
81.) .
Section 1. Be it enacted h the
General Assembly cf the Stato of
vw, mm- section wiir oi saiu act
of April 0, 1805, be amended so as
to read as follows, to wit:
Sec. 4. That two-fifths of - the
amount collected under tho provis
ions of this act shall be paid into
the State Treasury, to the credit of
the sinking fund, and tho same is
hereby appropriated to the pay
ment of the principal of tho public
debt of the State, and one-twentieth
of the amount collected under the
provisions of this act shall be paid
into tho State Treasury, 'to the
credit of general revenue ; and the
remainder of the funds collected
under tho provisions of this att
shall be apportioned by the Au
ditor of Stato to tho several coun
ties, according to the enumeration
and returns made to him by the
several county auditors, of the ne
cessitous persons in the families of
the soldiers and marines of said
counties, respectively, and pay over
Jho same to the county treasurers,
at their semi-annual settlements
with the State.
Sec 2. That section fonr of said
act of April 6, 1S05, be, and the
same is hereby repealed.
Sec. 3. This act shall take effect
and be in force from and after Its
Mr. Nixon moved that the rule
be suspended and the bill bo read
second time now.
Mr. Follett thought this hasty
action. Five weeks had elapsed
since the Legislature met, and this
proposition was made in the Au
ditor's Repouj;, but no action was
had until this morning, when a
printed bill comes into the House,
before it is presented, and the
constitutional rule asked to be sus
pended in order to pass it. This
fund thus sought to bo swallowed
up was raised for tho purpos e ofj
lelicving the widows and orphans
of soldiers, many of whom still
need relief in the different counties
of the State.
There is no pressing necessity
thus to rob the widow and the or
phan of the fund thus raised by the
people of Ohio to sustain them in
the hour of their poverty and their
need, and unless a pressing neces
sity exists to save the honor of the
State, he, for one, would not vote to
suspend the rule and to pass this
bill in such hot haste without' re
flection, when it is to rob the
widow and the orphan and tho sol
diers of money raised for their
benefit. The fund was raised for
this specific purpose, and the Cons
titution says all money shall be ex
pended for the purpose for which it
was raised by taxation, and he, Mr.
F., was not willing to violate tho
Constitution in this respect.
Mr. Glover and Mr. Lockwood
replied, each denying that there
existed any defalcation or absolute
necessity for this bill, except to
prevent the Soldiers' Relief Fund
from being paid out, instead of
being translerred to the Sinking
Mr. McMorran (Rep.) of Cham-
raign, was not in favor of this bill,
le was opposed to touching this
fund it was a sacred fund, raised
for the relief of soldiers and their
families and he was determinedly
opposed to its passage, and was in
lavor of its indelinite postponement
Mr. Sawyer (Republican), of;"
Champaign, 6aid that during the
war there were bonds of the State
due, but that the holders, not caring
for the payment, were satisfied with
their six per cent, interest. The
holders of these bonds are now
presenting them for payment, and
there are no funds to meet them,
and the creditors of the State press
their payment, because they can
get a higher interest for their
Mr. Harrison (Republican), pf
Clark, opposed the motion. He
was opposed to the suspension. The
Auditor of the State had already
drawn upon his county for their
Soldiers' Belief Fund.
Mr. Glover, who-before denied
that there was any thing wrong
about Treasury matters, now took
the floor and said he wished it to
be understood that the test ques
tion before the House was, shall
the State credit suffer, or shall we
keep this fund where it is. It is a
question for gentlemen to decide.
He, for one, wished to preserve the
credit of the State at all hazards.
Mr. Piatt said that tho speech of
the member from Scioto County
amounted to this, that tho Repub
lican party was the plunder party
on the floor.
After some, further debate the
question was taken, and tho Houso
refused to suspended tho rule in or
der to read.
I also telegraphed you about the
discord in tho "Union" caucus, and
tho excoriation Donn Piatt gave
the Reverend Ma. Gaddis. As a
specimen brick of that skinning
which the Reverend got, one of Mr.
Piatt's peculiar style, I give you
tho following extract, tak.cn down
by a member present, who thought
tho flagellation well deserved. Mr.
Gaddis had attacked Donn Piatt,
when Donn, slowly rising to his
feet, said :
Mr. President Some clever, fel
low has 6aid that the wind, when it
rvnnflir f.mn V u ... -i
luiia um uiuh vn a summer
evening and Bi'ghs amid the flowers,
it is pleasant; when it bends the
tree tops in a storm it is grand ;
when it lifts the foamy waves
against an inky sky it is fearful ;
but when it blows through a key
hole it is a bore. So with the Rev
erend gentleman. In social lifo be
is pleasant; on the stump he is
grand; when he consigns souls to
eternal perdition he is fearful; but
when he attempts personal sarcasm
on this floor he is a d -d bore.
Congress Inaugurating a Revolution
Congress Inaugurating a Revolution--A War of Races in Prospect.
No person can contemplate tho action of
Congress without forebodings for the fu
ture. Tliis is to us tho darkcEt hour in the
history of the country. It is true that we
have crushed an extensive anil powerful
rebellion. The disputed question in regard
to the interpretation of the Constitution has
been appealed to the arbitrament of arm?,
and settled. It lias been disposed of general
ly and forever by removal of thceuuse or dis
agreement, in the total abolition ol sl-ivery.
In this deeision the people In the revoked
sections have acquiesced, nnd now come
back, afking from the Government the priv
ilege of enjoying all the bhwiiigs of a re
stored Union and the exercise of their
legitimate rlirlits under it. At this point
they are met by Congress, which deilantly
refuses them admittance; thus In effect,
saying that those States which could not
accede by passing ordinances of cession,
which could not Fever their connection
with the I'nion by thenvord and bayonet,
arc nevertheless oiit by the will of -Congress.
Tims the nation, which lias been convulsed
by war, and is now longing fur peace and
reunion, is kept under Agitation by a fanat
ical and revolutionary Congress. Nor is
this all. The daily records of the proceed
ing?, of that body are tilled with iiillainaMe
torches, which, 'being applied to the body
politic, nre kindling the fires of another
revolution more extensive, lieivc ruid re
lentless than that from which we have just
emerged1 The Jacobins in Congress are
doing their utmost to bring about a war of
races the worst of all wars. Instead of
pursuing a courie of pacification, they are
trying to stir up strife, and are sowing tho
seeds which sooner or later, if they con
tinue, will deluge the streets of our North
ern titles and the plains of the South with 1
rivers of blood. There will be scenes of
bloodshed to w hich the liisurcrtioiiH in St.
Domingo and Jamaica, with all their chap
ters of horror, will furnish no comparison, i
The enemies ot this country in KuropeJ
were constantly predicting ihiring'our late
war that it made nodill'erelice whether the
North succeeded on the battle field or not;
the Union was destroyed and the country
could never bo united again. The South,
they declared, might be whipped, but they
would never renew their allegiance to the
Union. Wc have already seen how false
and erroneous has been this prediction.
Even those who were the loudest in pro
claiming it have long sinee admitted their
error, liut instead of this evil threatening
us we have one still more formidable, preg
nant with the most dire results. Toward
this we arc drifting with an alarming veloc
ity. The war for the preservation of the
Union has ended. The Chief Magistrate of
tho Nation inaugurated a policy under
which the country was rapidlr changing
from a warlike attitude to that of peace.
Our gallant soldiers are rapidly returning
to their homes and resuming their places
around the family fireside. Just at this
stage Congress assembles, and at once ar
rays itself against this course of events.
Not only is the revolutionary faction
which controls that body laboring to arrest
this march of peace, but they are'plunging
us into inextricable dillleulties. Before the
blood of our soldiers who fell In battle is
cold, or the grass is green upou their graves,
the Jacobins are endeavoring to force a war
of races upon the country, and carry deso
lation to the very heart of our populous
cities and thriving villages. Here we
stand, a Nation burdened by an enormous
debt, with the tax-gatherer at each elbow ;
our commerce, which is nearly driven from
the sea, again trying to resume its place;
one section of the country paralyzed by the
stern events of war, yet struggling to' rise,
I'hccnix-like, from the ashes, and yet Con
gress actually refusing to render assistance,
natical grip all for the purpose of retain
ing party supremacy. This is the picture
which is now presented to our view. This
is the feast which is now being prepared
for ns by those whom the people supposed
were their representatives in the National
Legislature. Sad as it is. paiuful as it may
be to look upon it; it is, nevertheless, a sol
emu and living reality.
This revolutionary faction, under the lead
of their Dantons, Jiarats and Kobespierres
in Washington, are instigating measures
and passing laws, upon the pretext of pro
tectingthe black, that mustiventually land
us to a direct conflict between the Auglo
Saxou and African races iu this country.
Thus, while pretending to be a friend of the
negro, iney are in reality ins enemy,, and
hastening the day of reaction which will
sweep him from our land. The blacks, iu
thelrjoy over freedom and their rejoicing
over their proposed political- rights, little
uream oi me voicano wnicD. is Deneatn tnem.
A great noise Is trade by the fanatics In
Congres3 about distinction of color; but tba
very steps which they nre taking is increas
ing that prejudice aud adding to that feel
ing which natnre has planteu in the breast
of every man. There is point, beyond
which the people will not be passive look-ers-on.
To that point we are rapidly belt
pushed by the modern Jacobins. The peo-
pie of the North realized but little of tho
hardships of tho recent war, We saw the
tax-gatherer approaching our doors ; wo
saw the wives and daughters of those gal
lant soldiers who fell Tu battle put on the
weeds of mourning; we saw the maimed
and crippled brought back from the front;
but beyond that it was but a dream. It
came and passed away like a storm in the
winter, leaving h -re and thei a mark indi
cating that something unusual had trans
pired. The people in many sections of tho
South, however, saw more of its solemn re
alities. Families were broken npand homes
destroyed, all of which was but the legiti
mate penalties of rebellion and attempts to
net-troy t:ie Government. But even tliii
hardship nnd suffering Is small, in compar
ison to that which will follow the comliet
that Congress Is enforcing upon us. Tho
fanatics of that body are leading us. step by
step, into a bloody contest that will extend
to every section of the country. Its evil
results, its hardships and devastation, will
not b.) confined to one section, but extend
over all localities East and West. North and
South, A war of races opens wide the door
for rapine and murder. It affects the high
est and the lowest. We have but to refer
to the horrible scenes that transpired in St.
Domingo, r.t tho close of the last century,
and those of Jamaica but a few months
since, to realize its horrors nnd dangers.
During our late war all could count upon
the enjoyment of life, No person was in
danger of the bullet unless he was in front
when the contending armies stood face to
face. But let a war of races bo once fully
Inaugurated and at the present rate it will
come sooner than we expect and the assas
sin is at the door citizen, at his side when
he walks the street, and he knows not when
lie leaves his home in the morning whether
those whom he holds dear will be alive
when lie returns at night. The contest will
be the most tierce in tiic South : for there
the races are more evenly ballenced. But
It is idle to suppose that we will escape iu
dreadful results here. We write thus ear
nestly, for we see the storm coming. Wo
sec the fires burning and Congress-engaged
in fanning the Haines and increasing tho
danger. It is impossible to look dispassion
ately upon their work without seeing tho
dreadful calamity that will visit us unless
measures are taken to arrest its progress.
Wc saw enough iu the riots in this citv, we '
have heard enough of the deeds along tho
Mississippi, to warn us of the danger ahead.
Seeing the whole country standing, as it
semi's lo us. on the ve.'gc 6f a precipice, we
rai.-c our voice of w arning, iu the hope that
even Congress may pause in the storm and
see where it Ls drifting. The conservative
portion of that body have the strength and
power to arrest tho evil if they only hvo
the courage. Will they not take hold liko
men and assist the President in resisting
the fanatical tide, and thus cam for them
selves the plaudit4 of their countrymen?
