At 1 o'clock, the bill to enforce
(he Fifteenth amendment, was ta
ken up. The virion being on
the motion of iir. Ferry, to strike
out that part of Mr. Stewarts
amendment, providing fines and
Imprisonment for persons holding
office In violation of the Fourtcentn
Mr. Ferry then defended his
position from the stricture on Mr.
Morion, and claimed that he spoke
for the Union men of the South in
advocating a general removal of
political disabilities. lie alluded
to the platform of the Republicans
In several of the btaiee, and
tbe utterance of tbe Republicans,
candidate in support of tnle. He
aid ia reference to tbe State of
Georgia, which Senator Morton
wu constantly boldinc up u the
model State of crime and disaster.
Why wa this? He was sure that
if the deatlnie of Georgia bad been
in toe band of men ot nign patri
otism, not of men who bad dragged
the honor of the Republican party
down to the oust, and whose ou.y
aim was their own pecuniary ad
vancement, the tale ot affair would
have been very different. Cut he
denied these stories. Thee tele
grams were manufactured to order,
and were sent here to the press of
thi city. Mr. Ferry read from a
lettertof Thoma 11 Jescup, who,
be said, wa a well known and em
inent merchant of New York, to
tbe effect that he had traveled all
over Georgia and taw nothing but
an earnest desire to accept the situ
ation and to let by-goues be by
gones, and characterizing as entirely
false the Avery telegram Ironi
Crunk wick.
Turning to tho North Mr. 7.
claimed that lu that section, also,
the majority of the Republican
press were in favor of the two bills,
which he bad Introduced, that great
press of Sew York which exerted
such a mighty iufluence, and circu
lated rrom one end of this country
to the other. He now asserted that
to continue longer these disabili
ties was in violation of all the great
rincipiesoitbeltepub!icau party,
e had been In favor of the right
of the blsck man, not because he
wa black, but because he waa a
man j and now that the right of the
black man bad been secured, be
feared that the righta of the white
maa himself wu in danger. Your

Morton, in replying, laid Ferry'
vac a Democratic speech, fie
should take a teat on that lid,
lie said Ferry's proposition wu to
sweep away all political disabili
ties, place rebels in power, and give
them the opportunity to renew
put mischiefs without affording
any protection to loyal men.
Sawyer eulogized Ferry speech
u a sound Republican doctrine,
and thought to read that Senator
out of the Republican party, wonld
require more than a mere assertion
and denunciation. He added, that
under the eolitkal diasabilitv
scheme, two innocent person suf
fered for the one guilty.
He add : No more blundering
