than wooden nutmegs har.
Thare is "LoTe undicing," that generally
lives about as long ai uncorked ginger pop
Tharoir. "Loto Untold," which ii alwns'

Ir ai full or pathos at a pork and beans
And tharo iz "Lore at sight," to which I
will add, ATe tor 90 days.
These aro some or the different kind or
Lore that aro denominated pathtm, and form

There iz not much sin In these different
stvles br lore t thev don't seem tew Kit up
to tho dignity or sin ; thare is deception In
them without doubt but the deception Iz
like Cottar's celebrated Rat Exterminator,
It won t hurt ennypody else but the rats.

Delaines are in small supply, which sustains
prices. There is more activity in desirable

Light-colored alpacas are In request. Up to
last week the foreign exchange market has
been favorable to importers. Now it Is not

MEMAGB VReif THE PltESIDENT
Veto of the Bill AilmUt'ngCoIorndo
sus a State.
Tb (A. SiiuU o fat tftul t Ella
I return tor the Senate, fat which IIoum it
originated, the bill which has passed both
tiooiu Dl uougirn, CUUIIC. au .v. iwi ,uo
admission of the State of Colorado Into the
Union." Vith mv objections to Its becoming a
law at this time. ,
JlratFrora the best Information which I
have been able to obtain, I do not consider
the establishment of a Bute government at
present necessary for the welfare of the peo
ple 6f Colorado. Under the existing Terri
torial government all the rights, privileges,
and interests of the citizens are protected
and secured. The qualified voters choose
their own legislators and tholr own local off.
cers, and aro represented in Congress by a
delegate of their own selection. They mako
and execute their own municipal laws, sub
ject only to tho revision of Congress an
authority not likely to balsxercised, unless
in extreme or extraorunary eases. The
fiopulatlon is small, some estimating It so
ow as twcnty.flve thousand, while advocates
of the' bill reckon the number at from thirty
five to forty thousand souls. The people
are principally recent settlers, many of whom
are understood to bo ready for removal to
Slher mining districts be) ond the limits of
le Territory. If circumstances shall render
them mora Inviting. Bach a population
cannot but find relief from excessive taxa
tion if the Territorial system, which devol , es
the expenses of the executive, legislative, and
Judicial departments upon the United States,
Is for tho present continued. They cannot
but nno tne security oi person ana property
increased by their reliance upon the national
executive power lor ine maintenance ot law
and order atralnst tho disturbances necessa
rily incident to all newly-organized commu
nities. Second. It Is not satisfactorily established
that a maiorltv of the citizens of Colorado
desire or are prepared for an exchange of a
Territorial for a State Government. In
September, 1864, under the authority of
Congress, tn election was lawfully ap-1
pointed and held for the purposo of ascer-
talnlng the views of the people upon this J
particular question. Six thousand one
hundred and ninety-two votes were -cast,
and of this number a majority of 3,152 was
given against the proposed change. In Sep.
tembr, 1865, without any legal authority,
the question was again presented to the peo
ple of the.Territory with the view of obtain
ing a reconsideration of the result of the
election held in compliance with the act of
Congress, approved March 21, 1861. At this
second election 6,905 votes were polled, and
a majority of 1S3 was given in favor of State
organization. It does not seem to me en
tirely safe to receive this tsstmentloned re
sult, so Irregularly obtained, as sufficient to
outweigh tho one which had been legally ob
tained lu the first election. Regularity and
conformity to law are essential to the preser
vation of order and stable government, and
should, as far as practicable, always be ob
served in the formation of new States,
Third. The admission of Colorado, at this
time, as a Btata into the Federal Union, an-
tutara Ln ma ta ha Incomnatible with the public
Interests of the country, "While it is desira
ble that Territories when sufficiently matured
should be organized as States, yet the spirit
or tne uonautuuon seems to require mat
there should be an approximation towards
equality among the several States comprising
the Union. No State can have more than
two Senators In Cona-resst the ltn-est SUte
has a population ot lour minions, several ot
the States have a population exceeding two
millions, and many others have a population
exceeding one million.
A nonnlation of one hundred and twenty-
seven thousand Is the ratio of apportionment
or Hepresenuuves among me several outlet.
If this bill should become a law, the people
of Colorado, thirty thousand In number, would
have In the House of Kenrcscntatlvcs one
member, while Now York, with a population
of four millions, has but thirty-one. Colo
rado would havo In the electoral college three
votes, while New York has only thirty-three.
Colorado would have in the Senate two votes,
while New York has no more.
Inequalities of this character have already
occurred, but it is believed that none hate
happened whero tho inequality was so great.
When such inequality has been allowed,
Congress is supposed to havo permitted it on
tho ground of some high public necessity,
and under circumstances which promised
that It would ranldlv disappear through the
growth and development of the newly ad
mitted State. Thus, In regard to the several
States in what was formerly called the
"Northwest Territory," lying east of the Mis
sissippi, their rapid advancement in popula
tion rendered It certain that SUtes admitted
with only one or two itcpresentatives in uon
otms would, in a very short period, be en
titled to a great increase of representation.
So when California was admitted on the
ground of commercial and political exigen
cies, it was woll foreseen that that State was
deatined rapidly to oecome a great, prosper
ous and important mining anu commercial
Community. In the case of Colorado, I am
not aware that any rational exigency, litWr
of a political or commercial nature, rcqulri s
a departure from the law of equality, wltkh
has been so generally adhered to In our hls-
lY information submitted in connection
with this bill is reliable, Colorado, instead of
Increasing, has declined in population. At
an election for members of a Territorial Le
gislature held in 1861, 10,580 votes were
cost. At tho election before mentioned, in
1664, the number of votes cast was 6,192,
while at the Irregular election held in 1861,
which is assumed as a basis for legislative
action at this time, the aggregate of votes
was 5,303. Sincerely anxious for the wel
fare and prosperity of every Territory and
State, as well as for tho prosperity and wei
firi) nf tha wlinlfi Union. I regret this appa
rent decline of population in Colorado, but it
is manifest that it is Hun to emlgrat'on,
which is going on from that Territory into
other regions witnin mo unucu otnum, wueu
eltner are in tact, or are urue-icu uy mo in

but little delay in tho ultimate admission of
the Territory as a SUte, if desired by the
people. The tenor of these objections fur
nishes the reply which may be expected to

Tins is a specimen ot the contrast between
the condition of Maryland ln her relation to
the proposed constitutional amendment and
that of the SUtes knows heretofore as the
Free SUtes. H we take all the New Eng

number in Maryland alone to-day, and our
number exceed thttraggrtgtte by nor thaii

In Maine the colored adult male popula

a proportion contideraUy exceeding that of
any other of the loyal State.
Whilst therefore, there Is not one of the
so-called free Btates that can, by reason of
the proposed amendment lose, by any possl.
bility, a member of Congress, although tbey
may still deny to the negro the right ol suf
frage, Maryland, whoso black male adult
population is more than a fifth of her entire
male population ot that age, must by the i ule
which this amendment prescribes, either per
mit these blacks to vote, or lose at least ono
fifth of her' Congressional representatives, she
having now but five.
Thus our SUte, which not many years since
had nine IteprcscnUtivea, and has been cur
Uilcd already, one by one. to about half that
number, now that she bu removed tha ob
stacle that so long Impeded her progress, and
is struggling in the outset of a new career,
with a greater need than ever of a compe

tho loss of still another member, or grant the
right of suffrage to these thirty-eight thou
sand negroes assumed by this amendment to
