EXTRACTS. &uauera State areraments--Amlnesty. The louth has beel lfor years a tir tile Gold for electioTeriug n.nsation. The 8tate governmeinrlts in soIu., of the SIn 'e.tra States have bee'n weak and bed, and the " .iberalb " want to try us for that. H\nat have we to do witul it t Why, they say we i . iowed pli. tical disabilities on tlhe rehets. \ iho Imposed political disabtliti'e on relwl!st We aret old the peopleo pay the debt, bat we never hear that the ilople im ed the disabilities; yet they did. bfourteenth amendment oft the CiUo stitutton, ratified by the Iegislatures oe requarters of the etates, is t he disability under which rebels have beas. That amendment dtsca not touch the right to vote, but leaves every reel a voter. It touches only the right to hld oatke. It provides tat-it the men who took an oath to support the Constitution and then fought astit p th a adding perjury to trea son, ubMt nat hohl office; and it fnrth or provides that Congress, by a two thirds vote, nuaa relieve them.' It is foolish to pretend- all b.iaagaloweid t, vOtq that the najo it) colt :not rule ; i is absurdnt to pretelndl that the r;e rebels, who were |ap.juratd a. wtv,; in trators, were the only fit el ;, ;siels 8tate officer aud legislators. It toi lows that the burteenth alseaidalnr-nt is not the cause of bad uturn Itui:g elactetl to office in the Southern States. ITh truth is, as was auntdatntly proved ite fbre the Kuklux ICotnmnittcv. that 4ulp able, educated men, elligi lle t, otlice sefted to accept it and rr'ts.rd to vote, sad persuaded the rebels gelnerall3 nut to vote, all for the pur one ot tosttting reconstruction in t lit' South, and maktitg it odious. Amnesty or want of anewnsty had nthing to do with jobs, in Southern Legistitcra any more than ia our own. No man uhas ever asked to le ttllved who was not reliewed proutpt ly. Indeed, history has no instaece it'o such fbrbearance anild Iernsy as hati been ranted to the rinig-leialers of the Mt ~ofoe was ever visited withl the leeS PiWalti except benhag bIrred frolt oe, tir commlitting perjnry as well as tresses, and bills for relief began ati once, and all who asked soton rleceivel I 4orgiveness. Whether a general act, naming no one, but covering rebels in S-bek4, was a compliance with the fourteenth amendneuit, may well be doubted. Be this as it may, the Presi dent recommended, land Congress on, tk eStdlilast Maiy aduelted, sulch all act t.wseald have ltasstal weeks ear lier, but that " Liberals," who i,;reteinl ed to be for a " civil rights hilt " by itsdlf, voter! atoweally to mtake it ias ubnoxioun as jaossitllte'azI d then, w hen it b-came part of the anlliaat, l)aill, some ot them voted against it ;land others dodged; and this whenl twot v,tes would hiave carried it. Anlt r.ow, when not more than one or two huadred men in the whole South are kft ineligtibl to ofice, and these llieni wLo still del and spurn the-Cot.stitu tlo:, we are gravely told that amnesty ii a great issue before the Auiericanl pleopple. Amnesty, as-an issue, is as dead as the politicians who prate about it It i. about ~ial as Su ner's publislih ed reauso supporting Mr. Greeley, namely, that Greeley was IsorI the smse year that he was himself.

Granatf' Ednceation. Grant can not be illiterate, or. as a Greeley orator told ann audience the. other dlay, '" ignorant of what 8echlnt xboys kmliow." Hie was educated a;t West Point. and whoever graduates inl that exact ilng school munst have all edtluation such as feew Amiericans receive. Mens tal nulture is not all we find inn Grant at West Point. His letters ~'ritten then stnalnp himn with lcharacter enough by itself to refuite the worn and soiled sicanilal which now tfeulds the nostrils of the intioin. From West Point he went to act a sunordinmate part inl the Mexin' a war. He acted it bravely, inlllestmy, alnd well. The Mexican war being over, his pay in the regular artmy would have gone on, and he might have iln peace auid idleness at the public cost, but, unwilling to be ii drone, he became a tannler. The " Tanner of Galena."- What He Tanned. MIr. Sumner withers him by re. mninding us that " he tanned hides at Galena tint a few hundrel dollarsn a year." He did not masquerade as a wood-chopper; he did not igure in piictorials as a farmer; he did not go rmnluld telliug " what hlie knew about" anyltlhinga that he edidit understand himswlf; hle minded his own bIusiness, and ler other peopl,'s business alone; but he worked with his Ilandas as a hewer of wood, w ich hie sold in the Itnarket, nd lrol ght out a living for his ftninily and liniselif. Froum the lbreakig oat of the re beineumii, hii career is a " thrice tolil talc"-the worlI knows it Iy hieart. Wheln the flag nank at SUllnpter, ihe did not wait to be tcalled. Wilhout commission, commalntd, uniforln or snhoulder-atrapls, he started for the field, anlld grasling the Stars anldi 8tripes~.andcanrried tihem through ai Ihize of victories such as uni mortal lelore him had wou.

He cainle to the wilderness of Virginia, wben the reidezvouu of the allied arnmies tot rebellion, and when the rebel chietn were ibnsting that in the fastneatwses of the Blue Ridge they could defy the world in arnns. He marched from Washington, and he meaaured no backward step until he eet his foot upos the alattered tragmentus of the greatest muilitary power an lnvading annry ever overthrew. He aolved the proIhlem which had bhaled all others, and prenerved a nationality after the world thought it gone down. How stood be then ? The nation leaned and reposedl apon himn, and bIlessl him. Both hemispheres geaze at him as the prodigy and wonider of the age. The Democrats sought bia connnt to nominate him fpr the Presidency withont platform or pledge, but he declined. His tutegrity taught him that whenl a party chooep a candidate for the other side somebody is to be cheated; andl by Qrant's consent, no onle ever was or ever will be cheated. But the Democratic managers adoredl him, and saw him only re splendent with greatness and with virtues.He was not unfit for Presi dent thetn; he was the fittest of all his countr.ayman. He did not beeonne until until three years' had rilpened andl enualirgedl his knowledge. Marrow. \ BIL'TiTTON WHACKITT. Hea.~ion and conllwcience are twin solns ,of God.

STALKIN4G THE NEOGO.-Mr. Rich ardsoa, in his -.lan to carry the State of Louisiana for the fusion ticket, pro lmose that, since the negroes have an actual majority in the State, the only way they can be beaten is for each re speetable citizen to quietly. step up on a colored manu, reason him out of his Grant politics, educate him into Gree ley's support, and then vote him for lthe asion candidates. This is a sort of still hunt that will have to he car ried on with great prudence, as the pursuing white man might fall a vic tima instead of coming out a victor. What if the negro should capture the solid old Democrat and reason him in to voting fur Grants As the i)eao crat do not admit the clored people to the same political rights tuat they claim for themselves, although they admit that they ought to do so when they accept of the political equality of all men, anay argument the white tarm er nmay have with his colored neigh Ior will be attended with advantages in favor of the latter tlhat will nurely enable him to win the day. Then, ae. cording to all the rules ofj~usee. It will he the duty of the defeated party to go with his victorious antagonist, and Greeley will stand in danger of losing a vote becanse he was represen ted by unfaithtbl counsel.
