In congress there are two

matter of legislation entirely in

entirely upon its agricultural
and commercial pursuits. There
should by rights be a much lar

merchants and manufacturers.
The Austin Statesman is very
strongly in favor of a law res
tricting the privilege of voting
to poll-tax payers, and is in
clined to the opinion that such
a measure will be favorably en
tertained by the legislature. A
law of this kind would of course
have to be submitted to a vote
of the people, but with the
evils that now beset us by the
election of incompetent officials,
we think there is np doubt but
that it would meet with the ap
proval of a majority of the peo

THE NEGRO IN POLITICS-
It is said that Pennsylvania
has a negro population of 30,
000, Ohio 15,000, New York,
Illinois and Indiana have also a
considerable number of negroes.
The negroes in none of these
states have any representation
in congress, "neither arc they
elected to any office of trust,
holior or emolument. In the
old free states the negroes hold
no offices, not even that of con
stable, and in the matter of ju
ries they are also given the go
by. In those states the negro
has no political power whatever,
he is simply used as a voter and
is expected as in duty bound to
vote the radical ticket. Some
of the northern negroes are be
ginning to discover that they
have no privileges other than
voting, and at this they are dis
satisfied and have begun asking
some very knotty questions,
such as, why are they allowed
no offices? The question is eas
ily answered the white people
have no conSdence in them:
they feel that are able to man
age their own affairs without ne
gro officials end they won't have
them. The radical party has
no earthly use for the negro
other than to use him as voter.
So far as holding office is con
cerned he is completely and ab
solutely ostracised. Here in
Texas there will be five negroes
in the next legislature, notwith
standing the fact that the State
is overwhelmingly democratic.
Texas will probably have a
larger colored representation in
her legislature than any other
state. In Tennessee, Missouri
and Kentucky no negroes are
elected to any offices, except
perhaps in very rare instances.
The negro politically is un
doubtedly a failure; should the
subject be agitated there is but
little doubt that the sentiment
of a very large majority of the
white men of the United States,
both 'north and south, is oppos
ed to negro suffrage as a matter
of principle. The republican
party having discovered that it
can no longer use the colored
people of the south for the pur
pose of eLcting republican con
gressmen, is now nearly ready
to abandon them to their fate
by disfranchising them for the
express purpose of reducing the
representation from what they
are pleased to denominate the

FROM GAY HILL.
1 have read with some inter
est your articles on proposed
constitutional amendments, and
not only yours, but also similar
ones in various papers of the
State. In fact the amendment
of our constitution and the rad
ical chancre of some of our
laws, seems to be a Herculean
task in which all the editors of
the State are engaged. Nor is
it confined to the editors, for all
classes seem to have something
to say or write, on one or the
other of these subjects. The
result of course, is bound to be
much light, but whether this
light will eminate from gas or
not, I cant say.
But seriously, in reading and
hearing the various amendments
and changes proposed, I am re
minded of the anecdote Dr.
Franklin told Thos. Jefferson
when the' declaration of Inde
pendence was being discussed
and criticised in Congress. The
latter it seems was writhing un
der the criticisms of his bant
ling, and to comfort him the
Dr. told him of John Thomp
son, the hatter, who, when he
was to start business for him
self consulted his friends on the
subject of his sign. The one
he had chosen was 'John
Thompson, hatter, makes and
sells hats for ready money"
with the sign of a hat. The
first friend suggested that the
word hatter, was entirely super
fluous, to which John readily
agreed, and it was stricken out.
The next said that he need not
say he wanted "ready money,"
as few persons would want cred
it for an article'of so small val
ue as a hat, and if they did he
might find it convenient to give
it. So those words were strick
en out. A third friend said that
when a man wanted to buy a
hat he did not care who made
it So two more words were
dropped and the sign now reads:
"John Thompson sells hats "
A fourth friend's advice was
sought, who asked him "who
the Devil would expect him
to giye away bis hats?" On
this cogent criticism he struck
out another word, and his sign
then, was "John Thompson,"
with the sign of the hat. Now,
as the preachers say, to make
the application, if all the chang
es were made that you and oth
ers advocate, we would have
nothing of our constitution left
but the title page, "The Consti
tution of the State of Texas,
Adopted in Convention Assem
bled," etc., etc.
This might be all right, but
if it was, we could not be hap
py, because then we would have
nothing to quarrel about. And
with no bone of contention we
would certainly be miserable.
If as is contended by some,
(theugh not by Timon,) we have
been going from bad to worse
ever since the war; it might be
well enough to let bad enough
alone. But in my opinion we
have been improving some all
the time, and have reason to
take courage; one misfortune Is
that we have gotten so in the
habit of changing our constitu
tion and laws that we are not
satisfied to try either fully, be
fore we want to try something
else. The fact is we want an
efficient government that we
won't have to be taxed to sup
port, one that is self sustaining.
We want laws that it will re
quire no sacrifice on our part to
obey I am afraid we not find
Each class of citizens thinks
it can propose something that
will come nearest attainingthese
ends. The. lawyer says he is
more familiar with the practical
workings of our laws than any
one else, and hence knows bet
ter what we want. The editor
thinks his opportunities for
learning the wants and necessi
ties of the people are unsur
passed, and therefore he knows
what is needed. While the far
mers and mechanics may not be
able to tell as fully what they do
want, they can very quickly tell
what they don't want.
Now to give all a fair trial, I
propose that our constitution
be so amended, that for one ses
sion of the legislature only law
yers shall be elected, for the
next only editors, and for the
next only farmers and mechan
ics. This would give all a
chance to show the good that
was in them. And should it be
found that the system did not
work well, why, we could again
amend our constitution.
