. presentation of the Radical position. ' lie
made the, usual defense of the constitution
al amendment, The prinviiial reason for
its adoption seemed to consist in the fear
that ''traitors" would get control of the
Government, but be didn't show wherein
the amendment would provide against it.
The truth Is, it doesn't provide at all
against "traltore" getting Into power.
. Some portions of. tho amendment are
well enough, but It mut be taken or re
jected as a whole. The absurdity of the
; position that "traitors" mvat vote upon It
' In their State Legislatures beforo It ran
become a part of the Constitution, and yet
are not entitled to representation and to
TOte upon it In the Senate and IIoiisc,nccds
no comment. The speaker held out the
amendment as the terms upon which the
South would he admitted to representa
tion, and j et it Is upon record that a reso
lution declaring the Southern' States enti
tled to representation, . upon their passing
the amendment, was voted down. Xew
conditions may bo imposed every day.
. The leaders of the party are in favor of
further conditious,and consider the amend
ment only as a bridge to the coining elec
tions. The legitimate fruit of the war is
' L'nlon; this was its obj.iet and end, and
yet the rights of conquest, which ob
tained in the.Dark.'Ages, were re-asserted
by the speaker a the "legitimate fruits"
of the war for I'nion. (

WASHINGTON, Sept. 29, '66.
In order to correct misrepresen
tation in respect to the payment of
tho bounties authorized at the last
session of Congress, the Secretary
of .War directs the following state
ment to be published:
' The pavment of bounties to sol
diers under tho act of Congress has
not been delayed by any action or
interference of the 1'resident.
Soon aAer. the ail journment of Con
gress, a board, witli General Canby
as. l'residcnt, was organized to
prepare rules and regulations lor
the payment of tho authorized
bounty. This duty involved in it
the consideration of numerous acts
of Congress, and the regulations
and practice of several bureaus,
and upon which depended the prop
er disbursement of our fifty mill
ions of dollars among more than a
million, claimants.. The body de
voted themselves to their work,
and when it was completed, made
a report to the Secretary of War.
That oflicer revised the regulations,
arid having doubts in respect .to
some legal points determined by
the Board, referred their report to
the Attorney-Uenerah who,1 after
cbnsidefation, advised . certain
changes. ' The matter was again re
ferred to the Beard, with mstruc
tions to revise and amend the reg
' This was done, and the amended
regulations, being approved by the
Attorney-General, were promptly
published, and orders issued to
carry '-them into' effect..' ; In the
W hole procedure there was rib in

Secretary of the Treasury. -The
report was not suppressed nor seen

Bounty to White Soldiers.
The biggest falsehood of the j
campaign was peddled around the
country by Andy Johnson in his
Northern raid, and has been re- j
by all the small fry of but-
ternut stumpers and papers until I
of them really believe there
is something in it.
Every soldier of 18G1-2. who was
properly on the rolls, received S100
bounty. Every
three year soldier,
that enlisted; after October, 18G3,
got $300, if he was a recruit, and
400, if he was a veteran. Soldiers
all know this fact
'' The paymasters, under old: laws,
refused to payawy bounty to color
ed troops. Congress directed that
colored soldiers have the same bounty
as white- soldiers. . The colored sol
diers are not getting any addition
