The scheme for Equalization oi Hountlo Seven hundred nnd thirty thousand men, It rmns cnlted in tbe war without bounty, and about as many more received compare, lively small bounties. There is a proportion now Uforc Congress to make every such man's bounty -qual to $400. To do this will only require the sum of Jive kunJrtt! aid fifty million dollar.-. We can hardly conceive that such a proposition should seriously occupy-tbo attention of Cunsrew. Ttio addition of half a tuition to the Nation al oVbt lor such a purj,ose is not to be 'thought of. TU- whole bounty business, during the war, was the source of incalcu lable fraud-, and to appropriate any such immense mm to go into the hands of "shysters," "shark!" and claim ageuts.who in a niajjrity or cases would secure the money instead of the soldiers for whom it wl intended, would be the bright of folly. The Colored Men of the District of Col nruliia. Anions the last speeches before the taking ol the vote on the suffrage bill for the Dis trict ol Columbia, was that of Mr. Van Horn, of New York, and the ttatrments made by him concerning the amount of in telligence, thrill and ratriotUtn among the colored population of the District, doubtless had eumethiug to do with the strength or the vote by which it was. carried. IVc copy from his s pcech, as reported in the Congres sional Glute: Jlr. iVas Hoax said : I ham that a lvrge pcition of all the tares paid into the national Treasury in this Dittnet is paid by colored property-holders and business men; same whom ay taxes on euros as high as $25, 000; whose enterprise and business thrift go very fir toward giving this District its present adtanccd condition of iirusrenty, and wbsse high moral character, as a class, (Joes not snf far bv comparison-with any ether, when we take into account the favor with tihich it has been treated by those who have been superior to them in point of privilege.

This large property interest has a right to be heard in the administration of affairs in this TH.triet. to nrotect itsell scainst injustice, and secure for itse'f a proper direction and share or the pntuic cnaniics auu puunc npiwuuica. It i n remarkable fact, which I hope does not cow exist, that up to quite a recent penal this unfortunate class of people were prohibited from forming and sustaining schools by their own efforts, and at their own expense, fur the education of their children. What record do these colored people in the District priscnt to the country? According to the census of 1600 the colored population was a little las than fifteen thousiud. It has been somewhat increased of Ute, as one of the con KPntrr-ncrs. of the war. but the statistics which I hear submit present a state and condition of things rrouucw uy ine enterprise, luiciugruur, and tLnft of the population above reierrcu to, and before the war : "The value of real and personal property now owned by them is over one million two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. "The value of church property held by them about anc hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars. cccsUtine if twenty-three churches which are suunorted at a cost of over twenty thousand dolhre tier annum. The number of church communicants is four thousand three hundred, while the average attendance upon religious services is cine thousand, some of these beinc attendants uion service at Catholic and Episcopal churches controlled by w hites. The number or Saunatn tcuoois lor coiorcu icreons is twenty-three, attended by between three ami four thousand nunils. "Of other fcbools for colored children there are thirty-three, and tha cumber of pupils at- tendicE them during the month of November, 1SG5. was four thousand and thirtv. Six of these schools arc ertirtlr supportol by the col ored people, others arc supiorted by the cener osity of northern benevolent societies, though . i . . - ... r i toe necessary dooks, siaiwuery, ac , 3ieiuruici. ed chkflv bv the colored people themselves. "Four thousand of the coiorel population of the District can read and write Ihey subscribe for about forty-five hundred copies of new" papers, a large p-uportion or tlies e Being uil les. Of sacicties for literary, benevolent, and other purposes, they have over thirty, and thringh the agency of these they.to a very great extent, provide for and support the needy and infirm ol their race in the District, the city gov ernment having but a very small per cent, of colored paupers to support. 'This is the record of a class of citizens in this community, ninety per cent, of which were slaves tr the immediate descendants ot staves, many having purchased their own freedom and that of their lamuics. And what record, sir, have tbey made dur ing the war, and since they were allowed to rc- enforce our armies, and share in the trials and honors of the "great conflict? The colored pcpulvtion of this District, as a class, have shown as much devoticn to cur country during the severe struggle through which it was passed as their white neighbors. They have exhioited, to say the least, as hi: order cl loyalty, and as much of it, as the white population. They were alwajs true, always the friends of the Government, in sunshine or in storm, in victory or defeat. While many with a whiter sfcm were plotting treason and con spiring to overthrow the uovemment which had male them all tbey were, and given tbem their daily bread, no treason or conspiracy was ever found in their ranks,or stained their hands with the innocent blood of the loyal and faithful dr fendors of the IlepuUic Out of a population to which I have referred, they contributed three full regiments, over three thousand five hundred enlisted men , while the white population of upward of sixty thousind sent only about fifteen hundred men for the sup port of the Union, the Constitution, nnd the laws. In all our country's tr-ils their loyalty has never been questioned, and their patriotism has been unbounded. They Tolunticred with alacri'y w thout the incentives of high pay, bounties, or promotions. led by white officers, with co expectation of any advancement in the ranks for gallantry or heroic conduct. Who shall say that this record is net a good one ? How dare we turn our backs upen these people in view of these facts, when we must know, too, that through all the way we have paesed the hand of the invisible has led us on to this glad hour of triumph, that we may do justice, and for the future work the works of righteousness that we may l exalted indeed T But it is said thit the people of the District are opposed to the principle of impartial suffrage, and voted against it by a large majority. So were they opposed to the Government in the dark days of the early part of the recent var, and if they had vctcd then wou'd no doubt have voted daw n the Government by a lirg: mi. jority. f SircNTit Rlciuent.

I I Bes Y7jde o.v tue I'eeeiijent. Senator Wade of Ohio made a vigorous off-banded speech, last Wednesday, tn tho grncral question ol reconstruct! m, in which he said: "I think, sir, that 1 can Hy with Paul, that 'we have fought a good fight.' We arc not entirely through with it, I admit. We may have a little further to go in the same direction, but our path is fortunately easier than it has been. Ye sir, I keep the laith, and I Lave no doubt in its Snal tri umph. I never feared it, and I never had the least doubt bow this whole thing would be settled, and it will all come right ii we are true to our convictions. I do not fear my associates, cither, in this great ques tion ; but there arc things in my heart that 1 cannot yet tco clearly. I give the President full credit for ail he has done, and honor hirn for the man ner in which he has insisted on the great guaranties I have already alluded to. He has commenced, bp it were, to complete this great arch of Freedom right. He has laid the foundation deep upon the road of juntice and right. He ha demanded that before the law all men shall be equal. He has de manded that slavery shall be abolished. I agree with him so tar, and honor him that tic stands firmly where he doe. Hut, sir, he has failed to Kit the keystone upon the arch that be has built ; and if you leave it ffbercitis, it will go to rum. I want, w hen this question is once settled, tu be en tirely done with it. I don't want eternally to be lighting over tho question of slavery, and distinctions among the rights and pre- vileges ol the American people. riw, sir, I cay to President Johnson, to the Demo cratic jwrty, and to the people of the oil tea ial(ri, tint l will never yieiu me oontruversv until all men in America shall stand upon an equal footing equal before im law in every respect. The Alheuy Et-min Journal rqtlica as follows to Mr. Wade's temarks urun the President's course: Mr. Wade complains that the President "has not put in the key-stone of the arch" by demanding and securing equal rights for the negro. What would he have done? or what is it legitimately within the power of .Mr. Johnson to do. that has uecn neglected .' The question of suffrage in one which bclon: to the State in their individual capacity The federal Executive can uuly suggest and advise. Mr. Johnson lias not hesitated to put upon record his desire that the tr cod men shall be admitted to the use ol the ballot. He lias expressed this wish to hii own State of Tcnntssce ; he has emliodied it in communications to the late Provisional (ovrnor of lisciasippi ; he has conveyed it to Sjuth Carolina through a representa tive defection of her citizens The surest way to secure political equality for the ne gro, is to guarantee him equality in the sight of law. In this regard, the course of the President has been renarkable straight forward and consistent. He has demanded the universal abolition of Slavery, and se cured that gtand result. He has summoned State Courts to recognize the claims of the black man to justice. He has refused to disband the federal forces in Southern dis tricts largely composed of colored soldiers. who are kept there to uphold the rights of tne wcbk anu uetenccless. lie nes continued the Freedmen'B bureau, under the auspices men who. like saxton, risk and rullerton, are noted for their philanthropy in this pe culiar uireceion. lie nast cniargcu toe juris diction of the Frcedmcn's Courts. He has directed the inauguration of a school system, through which the blacks shall obtain the advantages of education. In every possible way, compatible with the mixed sovereignty of tlie Union and of the States, lie has shown his substantial sympathy with the emancipated class, and his earnest desire that tbey shall be admitted to an enjoyment of all the advantages of their new nnd as yet undchned position Vermont Item.

The meeting was called tn trder by Mayor Cutlin, who on motion was made the permanent chairman oi the meeting, and G. G. Benedict was chosen Secretary. After the reading of the call by the Secre tary, J. S. Adam. Bnj. briefly explained the objects of tho meeting and introduced Rev. ami late Prof. N. O. Clark, now of Boston, who proceeded to address the meet ing. Dr. Clark considered the tirent a rare opportunity to build up here a better insti tute tl an bss existed in Vermont or perhaps in New England. He alluded to tbe past high standing of the College and to tbe val ue of its work, as illustrated by tbe position of its graduatts in Congress, in tbe pulpit, uf the bench, and as instructors elsewhere. II; doubted if our citizens fully realized the importance of tbe College to tbem, merely in a pecuniary point of new. There bad been years when the students bed czpended in Burlington $50.0110 a J ear. With its mem bers increased to 260 cr more, as we had a right to hope tbey would to under the new order ol things, it would cat be extravagant to estimate the money brought into Barling ton and expended here annually by means of the College, at $100,000 to 2125,000 a year. Such an institute would be of guat pecac iary advantage to the merchants, meebaniw and business men of tbe place. Mr. Clark proceeded to consider the de mands of the times for practical education .and to give at length his views of the proper char acter of such an institution as is contemplated by the new charter. It should he, he thought properly n mtrtrtily, with its chissiial and scientific courses, and departments of Maiern languages, Engineering, Chemistry. Agri cultural Science, Mining, Ac; w ith optioral courses, for students who did nut desire to take a full course ; treating all its students without distinction and giving its degrees to all alike who showed themselves worthy of tbem. Suab an institution must be liberally en dowed, in order to compete with rival insti tntioue. It should have at least an addition of $100,000 to the joint funds of tbe Uni versity of Vermont and tbe Agricultural College, litis would give an annual income of $18,000, wouM support a corps or 12 professors, and a fiord full instruction to 150 students. Once started on such a basis tne College would henceforth take care of itself; would have constant additions tu its funds from individual and State benefacti ns, and wcuhl become an institution of which thrcity and the State would be justly proud.
