JOHN I. HUBLBCT, t.a'eo' Cleveland. April 21, '-6. TT. 8. AMmor. Equal Suffrage in the Territories. A bill to amend the organic acts of tbe territories of Nebraska, Colorado, Daco tah Mnntana. WashinrtoB. Idaho. Utah ana - ew .oiexica, passea me xauuse ui V EepresenUiivefi on Tuesday. The only faatnrn of the bill which has any Dolitical . . . . . i . i . tt r importance or significance is its ninth section, forbidding any denial of the elec ( ' live .franchise in any of these territories , nn arwvmnt of nM or -color, and establish : ' ing equal rights before the law throughout " their extent. A motion to amend tbe Dill f by striking out this section was lost, yeas 36, noes 75, more than two-thirds of the " ' members present voting against it. By this Tote, as already by the passage of the bill itabUhing equal suffrage in the District " of Columbia, the Bepublican majority in ' the House of Representatives has com BiiUed rtaelf to equal suffrage as a princi - pie. We hope that the Senate may act " speedily on both bills, so that the disfran- chisement of men on account of race or r color may nowhere be permitted where ' the government of the United States has power to forbid it. ' The steps by which the national legis lature is marching on toward equal suf- frige remind us very much of tbe way in "which the same body made its gradual approach to the abolition of slavery. The history of the one reform is paralleled by J the history of the other. Congress began by prohibiting slavery in the national ter ritories and abolishing it in the national capital, just as it now begins by establish jag equal suffrage in tbe same places. It took these steps against slavery against the protests of timid friends and indig- v nant foes. The same classes are now '.. clamoring lustily against similar steps in Wua.It of equal suffrage. Then, as now, -: ih Senata was conservative, doubt inc. hesitant; wane me aouse, wnoso memwto came more directly from the people, was wager, aggressive, active. But in spite of doubt and hesitation, the good work went on. After abolishing slavery where it had rthe legitimate right, under the Gon.titu- " tion, to do ' 60, Congress proceeded to abolish it everywhere by Constitutional amendment. Let us hope that now, after calabliahing equal suffrage where it has the undisputed right, under the Constitution, to do so. Congress may establish it every where by Constitutional amendment. We entreat the present Congress to com plete the parallel which we have hastily sketched by proposing, before it adjourns, an amendment to the Constitu tion prohibiting any state from exclu ding any of its citizens from the exercise of t Vi Mltvtiv franphiAA nil araount of rnnA , or color. It has the power to do so, if --it only has the courage. There is a two it thirds majority in both Houses of Con gress in favor of equal suffrage as a prin " ciple, if they will take counsel of their consciences and not of their fears. . Such an amendment, if passed, would undoubtedly be triumphantly ratified. This may not now be evident, but the 'progress of events will soon develop and demonstrate it. What more nnlikely to recur again to our parallel what more 'unlikely, in 1863, could have been imag ined, than that, in 1803, slavery within the United States could be abolished by a - constitutional amendment, ratified by , thirty-four out of the thirty seven states t f The obduracy of the rebellion forced us to crush slavery. So the contumacy of the rebels will compel us to do justice to the froedmen and adopt Equal Suffrage. A Suggestion. We all remember how in the very crisis of our contest General Grant electrified tbo nation by announcing his intention to fight it out on this lino if it takes all summer." He fought it out, though it took not only all the summer but all the fall and all the winter, and in the early "spring his army entered the gates of iJttchmond and the confederacy fell. We entreat our Conqress now to "fight it out on this line if it takes all summer." If its members adjourn without havinglaid ' down its policy in reference to the South 'erntates, and established that policy on foundations so deep and broad that no usurpation or interference on the part of the President can overturn it, they will have fulled to do all their duty. We do not wish Vo hurry them ia this work It is one which should be consummated with the ut neet care, caution and del ibern'jon. We hope, indeed, that they may not complete the labor until they are ready to accept as its foundation Equal Justice to white and h'.!K. But we especially hope that, what emr they do, they may do it thoroughly, completely, patiently, and not the least in aTmrry, and that they will not adjourn until it is done, if it be not until the fourth of next March. Let them fight it of it on thitlmc even if it takes them as J.n to win a lasting and final triuumph 'as it did Grant. a aa a The Senators elect from Colorado pub lish a card, in which they emphatically deny the statement that has been going fiie ronnds of the Opposition press that the admission of Colorado to the Union was only brought about by political bargain between themselves and certain members of Congress. It is well that the falsehood should be nailed, even at this late day. , . i YhA TJnion Congressional Convention tion in the District of John A.

Mansfield, Esq-, Commissioner of Statistics of this State, and one of the edi tors of the Cincinnati Gazette, has pub lished in that paper an interesting article on the prospects of the wheat crop for this season. He estimates that the production of wheat in this State during the present season will be only one-half the aver age. The report of the product of wheat in this State, in the last four years re ported, was as follows: TUB. , S),64,J" ,055,t4 29,916,518 20,45,410 Agrcgmte of four year Araragecrop . I,51V,177 A fair average crop of wheat in this State may, therefore, be (stimated at twenty-three millions of bushels. If Mr. Mantfield's estimate is correct, the pro duction this year will amount to only eleven and a-half millions of bushels. This would be the smallest crop produced in this State during the lastsixeeen years. The smallest previously produced during that period was that of 18j4, which amounted to only 11,889,110 bushels. The largest ever harvested in the State was that of 1660 31,500,000 bushels. So much for the wheut crop iu Ohio. The total falling off is estimated by Mr. Man-field as follows : DL AEA6E BTriH. ,, , H.iVlU.'K-l Ohio... 1 llinois I niiia;: l , Kentucky...... Other Statvl 7,'J40,O0 6,4211,1)00 , , 'JLIHO.'HW . ll.oou.ouu T ,UI 4l,3-iJ,000 In other words, the total wheat crop will be less than the average by about eight million barrels of flour, and the na- tionhl loss will amount to about sixty million dollar. The loss to this State will be about fifteen million dollars, or about six dollars to every man, woman and child in the State. There is no need, however, to fear very high prices on account of the decrease of the crop. The wheat crop of 1SG0 was 173,104,000 bushels. The Agricultural Department estimated the crop of wheat in 1863 at 191,000,000 bushels, which is an increase on 1860 of 12 per cent If this be correct, the ordinary crop of 1866 would be 212,000,000. A deduction of 40,000,000 would be a deficiency of 20 per cent, on what the crop should be, but only 10,- 000,000 bushels less than the crop of I860. This production will be ample to supply the consumption of the entire country, but the surplus for exportation will be very small. The Sewerage Ordinance. We call the attention of our readers to the ordinance to provide for the tapping of public sewers or drains, and for making connections therewith, passed by the Coun cil at its last meeting, and printed in another part of this issue. Its provisions are strict, but none too much so in these times of preparation against pestilence. Upon the proper condition of our sewer age depends, more than upon any other one thing, the health of the city, and its freedom from zymotic, or foul air, dis eases. We have a good ordinance, now, and we hope that the Board of Health and Police Judge may enforce it strictly. Meantime, it should be the duty of every citizon to inform himself of its provisions and so avoid transgressing it. The Senatorial Question in Connecticut. Uent. The dispatch from Jfew Haven, Conn in regard to the ballot for United States Senator in the lower House of the State Legislature, which appeared in yesterday moraing's edition, is evidently in error in announcing the vote for Mr. Foster as 79. Tbe total number j members of the lowci houte is only 237, while the total number of votes cast, according to our dispatch, if 303. Mr. Poster's vote was probably either seven or nine, and the other figure has been addud by mistake. It will be seen thai General Terry has a clear majority of the whole House, and the concurrent action of the Senate alone is necessary to com plete his election. Tlie Ohio Statesman (Dem.) has discov ered a rich field in which to exercise its peculiar genius. It learns ; from a source the credibility of which cannot be success fully impeached," that "the wife of i loading state official, and who is indebted to Oberlin for her education " (we are not responsible for the Statesman's grammar) has, positively, in cold blood, asked her chambermaid, who is white, to sleep in the same bed with her cook, who is colored 1 This atrocious attempt to illustrate the equality of the races ft . ms the subject of the leading article in Wednesday's States man, and upon it that fastidious and deli cate paper dilates for a half column. The topic is worthy the exalted intellect of the Statesman editor, and the labor which he has expended upon it Most newspapers would deem themselves incompetent to pass judgment upon the internal arrange ments of a lady's household; but the Statesman man is as unrivalled in his new business of prying into pantries and in specting the sleeping rooms of servants, as in eulogizing Andrew Johnson and denoun cing the Radicals. In each in all he is (and we trust he will continue to be) " a man without a model and without a shadow." The New York World has a well-earn ed reputation for fatuity ; but it has eclipsed all its previous absurdities in an editorial article, which appeared in its Tuesday's edition, gravely arguing that the negroes of the South are not a part of the people of the South. We suppose the World maintains that the census- takers have committed a grievous error in counting them as men and women, the tax-collectors in taxing them, the officers of the law ia punishing them for offenses, and the Southern Congressmen in repre senting them, or three-fifths of them, in Congress. This is all wrong. These ne groes are a new genus of mammalia ; they are not "people;" and the laws made by the people for the people cannot of course apply to them. The Cleveland Herald is in high dud geon because elevens ana ingersol, ( Unionists) are allowed to pass uncensured, while Chanler, (Copperhead,) is censured for his insult to the body of which he is a member. It "calls upon the same gentle men who vindicated their self respect by denouncing such abusive language in Chanler, to also censure Stevens and In gersoll for their abusive epithets used toward thy President." This sort of talk reminds us ef the "you're another' style of retort which is much in vogue among boot-blacks, news-boys and other street Arabs.: The House of Representatives declares Copperhead Chanler censurable. Tou're another" shouts the Herald to Unionist Stevens and Unionist Ingersol. Unfortunately for the Herald, .however, neither the House of Repeesentatives nor the Union majority in the North agree with it.

United States Senator Wright's health has utterly failed, and he has returned to his home at Newark, Now Jersey, with no "expectations of ever returning to Washington. Hon. Marcus J. Parrott, of Kansas, has informed the National Johnson Commit tee that he does not want to be Vice Pres ident of their club, and does not approve the policy of the Chief Magistrate. The New York Sens is greatly out raged at tha preposition to put Jeff. Da vis on trial, and pronounces it to be "the result of the same bloodthirsty spirit that brought the heads of the noblest and best of France level with the dust." The New York Commercial Advertiser says that Count Gurowski's last written words showed that he had changed his opinion of Secretary Stanton, for whom he used to battle. Among the candidates for the U. S. District Judgeship iu Maiue, to succeed Judge Asher P. Ware, resigned, are Gen eral Shepley, of Portland, and Judge John E. Godfrey, of Bangor. The Cincinnati Cuimriercial is of the opinion that Secretary Itantn has been "recoiiitructed," and that t;he no locker appears a fiery Mars, breathing havoc and slaughter, but, robed in the white gar ments of peice, and crowned with tho olives of conciliation, ho turns his back on the faithless partizans, who allured only to deceive, and grasping the President's policy of restoration in one hand, firmly and fervently clasps his portfolio to his palpitating form with tho other." A Washington correspondent of the New York Tribune says : "It is reported, with mingled astonishment and amusement, among the Ohio delega tion here, that an attempt is being mado to injure General Garfield's pros pects of a renomination and election by charging him with being a frto trader. On the contrary he is one cf the staunch est protectionists in Congress, and the iron interests of the whole country are espec ially indebted to him for watchful labors in their behalf.'' The Consular and Diplomatic Appro priation bill, now pending in the Senate, was amended by that body so as to chinge the title of our diplomatic representative to Hayti and Dominica to "Minister Res ident and Consul General," and to increase hissalarj. The oilico is now held by Professor II. E. Peck, of Oberlin. lii present title is ''Commissioner and Consul General," and his present salary is $7,500. We congratulate the Minister to Havti on his promotion in diplomatic rank. The Portage county Democrat comes out strongly ia favor of the re-election of General Garfield. It also warmly urges the re-election of Judgo Spalding. NORTHERN OHIO NEWS. LORAIN COUNTY.

Wo have promise of an abundant apple-crop if no untimely Alay rrosts intervene. I ne roads are perfect order. The soil is as light and favorable to spring work as Lorain soil ever is, and albeit the early spring was cold and backward, nimble farmers are already well caught up from those delays. Wheat looks poorly. Some fields will not return the seed given to them, but most will do better than that.

His Body Found Partially Eaten by Wolves. [Special Correspondence of the St. Paul Pioneer.] Fort Abercrombie, D. T, May 4. After a lone seaach the body of the late Captain A. B. Fields has been found, as also the body of one of the men who were with him when be loit his command. Ibe body of the private found is supposed to be that of Smith, from the description of the man, as left by members of the 2d cav alry. The badies were found on the 1st of May, about fifteen miles nearly south of Twin Lakes Station, by a small detach ment of soldiers who wero accompanying lb father of the Captain in the search for the bodies. The body ot Captain Fields when found was lying on its back, but had been eaten somewhat by wolves, as had also the body of Smith ('.') who was lying on his face. Tho bodies were about one rod apart, so that they must have perished or become helpless about the same tiuio. From all the observations of tho search tfcey must have witnessed the inclemen cies of the storm of the night, and prob ably died the next morning or sometime during the day. TUey had, undoubtedly, not traveled any on foot as Captain F. had en when found a pair of rubber over shoes, which would have been cut and worn more or less had he have travelled through the crust. Thus ends the surpense which his many friends have been in so long. We know his fate, and sad indeed it was. What the anxiety of the father, who for so long a time has searched the prairies tor some evidence of the missing son, nono can tell, nor can pen describe the anguish which the father must have felt when the realitv of his Bon s fate was brought hoiue to him by the finding of the body. Thus has ended the career of three, and probably of four, of our noble volunteers, who, although they did not full in the front ranks by rebel or Indian bullets, yet they have fallen in the service ot their country, and have given up tneir lives, which is the most that man can do. " Peace to their ashes." The body of Smith (?) was buried where it was found ; that of Capt Field: was wrapped in blankets and brought to this post. Mr. Field leaves with the body for his borne in Red Wing. The body of the fourth man may never be found, as no further search will be made. i FROM ANOTHER CORRESPONDENT. FORT AMERCEABLE, May 4, 1866. The body of Captain Fields was found last Tuesday, the 1st inst, near the place where tho Paymasters' escort found those horses on the 16th ot rebruary last. laid on the prairie about four miles south of tho road and nine miles from the coteau. Tho clothing on the corpse was torn, and the body itself had been horri bly mutilated by the wolves wmcn intes this part of Dakota. The body of one of tho soldiers who accompanied Captain Fields was also found near bv. The hands were eaten off by tho wolves. Volunteer. Indictment of Jeff. Davis.

Recovery of the Body of the Late Collector King of New York—Appearance and Identification of the Body. [From the New York Herald May 15.] No little excitement prevailed through out the city yesterday afternoon upon the fact becoming generally known that the body of Preston King, late Collector of the Port of NewY'ork, had been recovered. It will be remembered that Mr. King com mitted suicide on the 13th of November last by jumping into the river from the. deck of the Hoboken ferry boat Paterson, since which time until discovered just six months bis remains have lain in the water. RECOVERY OF THE BODY. The body was picked up at the Atlantic dock, Brooklyn, at live o'clock yesterday morning, by officer Kenny, of the Atlan tic dock police. When first discovered the body was drifting in through the gap from Buttermilk channel, and was imme diately taken to the south side of the dock near Master's elevator B. Here tbe re mains were secured, and Captain Thomp son notified. After making a superficial examination, Captain Thompson became satisfied that the body was that of Preston King, and started at once for New York to communicate the intelligence to the Custom House authorities, and, if possible, to get some person who knew Mr. King to go over to the Atlantic dock and iden tify tbe remains. APPEARANCE ON THE REMAINS. The body was that of a short, stout man, having on a black sack overcoat, blue, swallow-tail undercoat with brass buttons, blue pants and vest, and having on woollen socks and calf-skin boots, which latter were very little worn. The clothes were not so much decayed by the water, considering the great length of time they had been exposed to its destruc tive influence ; but tbe toes of the boots were completely worn away, caused, no doubt, by the continual contact with the sand and rocks on the bottom of tbe river. The body was in a very advanced state of decomposition, but was very little eaten by the fishes. The hair of the head had all been worn off, and tbe flesh on the face was partially peeled, but the eyes were closed and some of tho fingers had rotted off. Under the overcoat and over tbe un der coat was lied a twined string, of spun yarn, which, being passed around the neck and waist, united about tbe lower portion of tho chest. This twine had the appear ance of having had something heavy at tached to it, and is probably the samo to which was suspended tbe twenty-five pound bag of shot which Mr. King had fastened to his person before taking the final plunge. The string had evidently parted bv the motion given to the body by the tide. IDENTIFICATION OF THE BODY. The officers of the Custom House hav ing been notified, Mr. Preston King Web ster and Mr. J. R. Lydecker proceeded to the Atlantic dock, where they identined the remains as those of tbe late Collector. They recognized beyond the possibility of a doubt the clothes, the size and build of tbe body, and also the contents ol the pockets. The contents ot tne pockets con sisted of the following articles : A pair of gold spectacles, a gold tobaccobox, a pocket knife and an empty pocketbook. Mr. V ebster and Air. 1Vdecker identi fied these articles as belonging to Mr. King. Mr. King was a large man, weigh ing two hundred and sixty pounds, and was sixty years of age. THE REMAINS TAKEN TO OGDENSBURG. After the post mortem examination had been concluded the body was given in charge of an undertaker, who had it prop erly washed and laid out. Mr. Preston Iving Webster will start in an early train this afternoon for Ogdensbure.New York, with the reniainswhere the tuneral services will be held and the body interred. Og- densburg is the place where Mr. Kino- was born, and where he always resided when not employed in puulis attairs. WASHINGTON TOPICS AND GOSSIP. DIDN'T BELIEVE JEFF. UUILTY. A statement appears on authority that two of the grand jury who indicted Jen. Davis did not believe tbat ne had been guilty of treason, and voted against in dicting him. They were from Alexan dria. STONEWALL JACKSON. The anniversary of Stonewall Jackson's death, celebrated all over the South, was impressively observed in Kaleigh, J(. C-, by the closing of the stores, a memorial oration in the Senate Chamber, and a pro cession to tne cemetery to decorate rebel soldiers' graves with flowers. The grave ot president Johnsons lathor was par ticularly honored in this way, as "a tes timony of Raleigh's respect fur the Pres ident and tbeir gratitude for his mag nanimous Southern nlicv." a a llixin newspaper phrases it CONSEQUENCES or A VICIOUS PRINCIPLE. The Irishmen at work at cleaning out the canal here, who were hired on tbe eight-hour system, aud are expected to vote for Mayor Wallach, struck for highor wages to-day. A force of colored laborers put to work in their place were immediately attacked by the Irish, driven off with a shower of rocks, and would have sutl'ered all the murderous horrors of what the Johnson papers call "a negro riot n the armud police had not been marched up to their rescue. Under this protection the work deemed necessary to save Washington from the cholera was permitted to proceed. MR. STEWART'S PLAN OF RECONSTRUCTION. In the Senate, on Monday, Mr. Stew art, of Nevada, offered a substitute for his former proposition of universal am nesty for universal suffrage, to which tbe States lately in rebellion are required to give their assent as a condition of their return to the Union. It excludes from office tho President and Vice President of the late so-called confederacy, members of the Thirty-sixth Congress and heads of Departments who went into the rebellion, and also those who were cruel to Union prisoners. On complying with these terms the States mentioned- are to be ad mitted and universal amnesty declared. NEXT PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE. General Grant is universally looked to as tne candidate ot the Lmon party for the next Presidency, and the prospect is a pleasing one to those who look for a con tinuance ot the present ill-feeling between President Johnson and Congress. The certainty that the Lieutenant General will be offered the nomination has con centra ted speculation upon the Vice-Presidency, for which Judge Kellers name is already assuming prominence as a pros pective candidate. Me is strongly sup ported by the manufacturing interest, and win command support from most advo cates of a judicious protective system. Judge Kclley's exhaustive tariff speech has had an unprecedented circulation, and the call for it continues undiminish ed. Several thousand copies were lately ordered for circulation in the West, by Congressmen from that section, and large numbers have been printed for distribu tion by the Republican Executive Committee. THE CHICAGO APPOINTMENTS. Are just now giving the politicians of Illinois great trouble, the appointments of Walter B. Scates as Collector of the Port, and General Msaa Collector of In ternal Revenue, haveopened the ball that may end in the appointment of new men to every Federal office. Colonel John Logan, cousin of General John Hay, is likely to receive tne United btates itar- shalship for the Southern District of Illi nois. General Tom Osborne is also peken of as likely to receive the Asses- sorship for the district embrac;ng the city of Chicago, vice Peter Page, present in cumbent and Wirt Dexter, District At torney, in place ot Perkins Cass, 'the rumors of change in the Chicago Post Office are revived from time to time, but no new applicants, so far as is known, have been suggested. "Long John" left here two weeks ago, and has scarcely been heard from tilf to-day. when he tele graphed Trumbull that there was a gen eral stampede among the officeholders. They begin to see tne handwriting on the wall. MILLINERY GOODS. SEA SIDES! Jnrt received by L. BENEDICT & SON, AT ap5 WHOLESALE AJf D SJETAIIw CITY NOTICES NOTIOK TO CONTRACTORS.
