TOE DEtMKRATIO ADYeCATI. THI?HBt>AY. J ANTI ARY 17. *B#T fljp AT?KAL ur TUA4*. c Representative# *r exuß have lately published au Addrcoa to tbo People of the United State# on the present situation, which should bo seen and read by all. It ia a very temperate, statesmanlike and well reasoned document, which feta forth not only the condition of Texas, but of the South. It is a maaterly vindication of a people who have submitted in good faith to the power of tho Federal gov- j eminent, relying on the honor of that government to fulfil its part of the con triot of surrender, and who desire noth ing there ardently than to forget former difference# and renew former kind rela tions. Hut what use is it to appeal to u Radical Congress, or the Radical ma jority which sustains them I TV hat care they for obligations (Deferred during the war by which they obtained help to conquer the South, and by which for eign interference was stayed ? Tbodread of failure is past, and their cherished object, the emancipation of tho Blacks, has been achieved; but there ia a chance to ask for more still. The terms and conditions of surrender are to be disre garded by one branch of the govern ment, the Southern people are to be regarded as a subjugated people, and the war as still not closed, or the I nion restored. What matters it to them to secure the lasting gratitude and friend ship of the Southern people at this junc ture when tho only chance is offered? They would sooner keep it as a con quered Poland, or Ireland, and smother the undying hate, which their course must produce, by the aid of their negro friends and unnatural Southern while*. But the appeal is to the People, and not to Congress, and there is still rea son to hope that a large majority of the Northern people will yet listen to the voice of reason, and save their country from the lower deep, below even that of the late civil war, which Is gaping wide to receive it — i V. S. Senator from Maryland. Them w a Uw which require* that 1 one of the United State* Senator* of! Maryland shall always be taken from . the Kaste.-u Shore. As that does not constitute mure than one 6itb of the I Slate it seem* to bo an improper res triction. That portion of tho State hae always had a due proportion of the worth and talent of the State, and need not foar that her sons will be overlooked in the distribution of the office*. So gen oral a desire has been manifested to give i Oor. Swauo the honor of an election to | tho li. S. Senate in the place of Senator Creswell that the above law has Veen repealed Cor the purpose; but to gratify tho Eastern Shore it was immediately re-enacted, so that the next Senator in place of Hon. Iter. Johnson is to come froth the Eastern Shore. As the latter | is so valuable s member, we doubt not the Uonaervatives of the whole Union I will demand his return to the Senate, if • be should bo willing to accept it—aud we hardly doubt that the public senti ment of the lias torn Shore will yield oooe morsgracefully, as they have done in this case, ia his favor. - ' * CONGRESS. As soon as the late veto of President Johnson, (which is published in part on our first page) was returned to the Sen ate, it was passed by a two tbirda vote, and shortly after in a like mauner by the lloase. It ia now a law, and the 1 experiment of negro suffrage is to be tried in the District. Since then, Con- j gross has passed alaw compelling negro auffxugo in all tho Territories. They will wait awhile to fee whether the Southern State* will obey their man date to adopt universal suffrage Then, if not conceded, they may reduce the refrac(<sy State* to Territories, sod the thing is done, according to the Radios! plan. Mr. Ashley, of Ohio, introduced a resolution to impeach the President, which was referred to the committee on the Judiciary. Whether Congress is desperate enough to undertake this re mains to be seen. In the meantime the credit aud interest of the country lan gnish, aud will continue to grow worse, unless tire power of the ultra Radicals is curbed, CORRECTION. la the communication of "Spectator,” •St week, os the subject of lb# remove! off the Auditor by the Judge of the I Circuit Court of this County, the ex presdoa therein contained, in reference to certain persona now holding offices “cariril out fur Ihenuelvet" conveyed a more pointed atlas ton to the J adge than wa were aware ofjpt the time of ita in sertion.

In the House of Delegates, on the Bth inst., Mr Wampler presented the petition of the Manchester Seringa In stitution of Carroll County for an amend ment to its Charter. Mr. Qore obtained leave to report a Bill to incorporate the Freedom Masonic Fudge of Carroll County. Ia the Senate on tho 10th inst. Mr. Billingslea, from a special | committee reported a bill to authorise ; tho Commissioner* of Carroll County to 1 levy a sum sufficient to pay the costs in an old case of the State vs. Harriet and 1 Miranda Porter, which was read, the i rules sU'ponded, and tho bill passed.— | Mr. Carmichael, on the 10th hint., in , tho House, obtained leave to report a bill, from the Com. on tho Judiciary, to provide for the summoning of jurors ia Washington, Frederick uud Carroll Counties. ()u tho same Jay Mr. Carmichael, from a joint special committee, reported a Bill to provide lor calling a Conven tion to franio a now Constitution and form of government for this tState. This Bill appears to copy considerably after the act calling tho Constitutional Con vention of 1804 It provides that on the second Wednesday of April next, nil persons entitled to vote shall vote for or ngainst a Convention, and at the same time elect Delegates to the Convention, to meet, iu cose a majority vote for a Convention, on the 2nd Wednesday of May 1867—Baltimore city to have its present number of Delegate#, aud eleven to be added to the lower Counties of which they were deprived by the pres ent Constitution. THE BILT. TO RESTORE TO RIGHTS OF CITIZENSIIIP CERTAIN CITIZENS OF THIS STATE. The following is the bill reported by Hon. Philip F. Thomas, of Talbot coun ty, in the House of Delegates Bth iust., to restore to full citizenship and the right to vote and hold office all persons who may be deprived thereof by the provisions contained iu the fourth sec tion of the first article of the const it u tion of this State. Whereas, by the provisions of the 1 fourth section of tho first article of the constitution of this State, a large por tion of its citizens otherwise entitled to > vote and hold office have been deprived | of those privileges, whilst they remain ! liable to taxation, to the performance of I military duty, aud in all other respect* subject to laws iu whose enactment, they can have no participation, ail of which is contrary to the principles on which republican governments are es tablished ; and whereas these restrictions were designed to bo temporary, os is evident from the fact that power is wisely given to tho General Assembly, iu the very section of the constitution | which imposes such restrictions, to re , move them in all cases by an act passed j by a vote of two-thirds of all the mcm i bers elected to each house; and where las tho rcosous for such restrictions j have, by the return of peace, now hap pily ceased to exist, and it is therefore ; right and proper, by the speedy excr- j else of the power so reserved to the General Assembly, to re-establish and | reaffirm the right of tho people to par I licipate in She Legislature, justly de- I dared in the declaration of rights to j be the security of liberty and the fbun- 1 j datiun of all free government; thcre j fore. j Be il enacted hy the.

That all persons otherwise enti tled to vote and hold office, who may be deprived of those privilege# by reason of any of the provisions of the 4th section of tho Ist article of the constitution of this State, be and they are hereby res tored to their full right# of citizen-ship, and each and all of them shall be enti tled to be registered as qualified voters, and to vote in the same man tier as if the said 4th section of the Ist article of the constitution had not been adopted, I upon taking and subscribing before any j justice of the peace, or other officer au- | | thorited to administer an oath, or bo j fore the proper officer or officers of registration, the following oath or affir mation : * M I , do swear (or affirm) that I am a citizen of the United States, aud that I will bear true faith aud allegi ance to the United States, and support i the constitution and the laws thereof as the supreme law of the land, any law or ordinance of any State to the contrary not withstanding; that I will iu all res peels demean myself aa a loyal citizen of tho United States; and I make this oath or ( affirmation) without any reser vation or evasion, and believe it to bo binding on me.” And shall be entitled to hold office upon taking, before any officer or per son authorised to administer an oath, the following oath or affirmation : ****** And I do further swear (or affirm) that I will, to the best of my ability, protect and defend the Union of the United State*, and not allow the same to be broken up and dissolved, or the government thereof to be destroyed un der soy circumstance# if iu my power . to prevent it, and that 1 will nt nil times discountenance and oppose all political combinations haring for their object such dissolution or destruction.” Sec- 2.

Section 4. This act shall take effect from the day of its passage. Western Maryland Railroad. We learn from tho *Frcderick Ileum i ter that Mayor Chapman, President of tho above Road, last week, appeared a second time before the County Qommis (donors for Frederick for the inducing them to endorse the bonds of the Company for $300,000, with the view of making a branch of the - Road to Frederick City from Union : Bridge. The Kramine.r is disposed to j favor tho project, but would profi t to have the main road made from Union ; Bridge through Frederick City and Cramptou's Gap to Hagerstown. It is j tired of the imporition of the Baltimore , k Ohio Railroad, which it says charges sixteen cents per bushel for wheat from Frederick and. the same price for a bar rel of flour as from Martiuoburg Va., whilst by the Western Md. road it i would not be more than nine cents per j bushel and in proportion for flour. The ( Branch would give Frederick two roads to Baltimore, and would bo n desirable | connection, running through a very I rich country. We have no doubt we will have some day a direct cointuttnica lion with Frederick city by rail. The laclil Race. By the log books of tho three yachts which contended in the recent ocean 1 race, it is reported that during the voy-, ’ ago the Henrietta ran 3,006 miles, the } Fleetwing 3,007, and tho Vesta 3,064.' : Tho Henrietta although the winner, sailed the longest distance and her dai- j ly average was 218 miles, whilst that i of the Fleetwing was -11 mile*, and 1 that of the Vesta 21-I. The greatest j runs were; Henrietta 280 miles, Vesta . 277, tyid Fleetwing 270; the smallest daily runs were: Henrietta 153 miles, Testa IGS, and Fleetwing 136 miles.— With reference to short voyages across the ocean, an English naval officer writes to tho Loudon Times that iu the winter of 1821 he crossed the Atlantic iu the New Castle sailing frigate in clo ven days. I Test Oaths I'nconsfiditlaual. '' j The Supremo Court of the United j I States on Monday last decided Test ; Oaths to be unconstitutional, in the ca ses of John A. Cummins, a Catholic | Priest, and 11. A. Garland, an Attor ney, both of Missouri. Justices Wayne, j Nelson, Grier, Clifford and Field agreed ion the decision. The minority, Chief I Justice Chase, aud associate# Sway no, j Davis and Miller gave a dissenting opin ion. This is a very important deck*ion. aud taken in connection with tho late decisions of tho Court against Military trial of citizens, is a severe blow to Rad icalism. Va. U. M. Senator. The Republican Caucus met at liar 1 risburg Pa. on the iffth inst. and nomi nated Hon. Simon Cameron on the first • ballot for U. S. Senator. The vote stood for Cameron 46 ; Curtin 23 ; Stevens 7;.i Grow, 5. Forney withdrew in favor of' Thad Stevens with very little effect however. Before the caucus met Mr. • Stevens wrote a letter declining to go to Harrisburg to urge his claims, uud i charging that former legislatures of that I State had disgraced the Slate by their j corrupt practices, evidently striking atj i Mr. Cameron who has been charged with buying up member#. Neverthe less both Mr. Stevens and Mr. Forney went to Harrisburg, and were there to witness Mr. Cameron's triumph. A Twenty Vein** War. The Louisville Journal contains the following: Two families ofCarter coun ty, East Tennessee, named Huberts and Johnston, have been waging a bloody war between each other for twenty ! years. During this time fourteen men belonging to the two families have lost their lives, and on the evening of the stb instant, in Elizabeth. Tennessee, the sole surviving male* of the two fam ilies engaged in an altercation, which resulted fatally to both. This domestic j war originated about # dozen fence rails. | A fibort Honey moon. A few weeks since a young German i barber, of Indianapolis, led to (he hyme- 1 neai slur a young and intelligent girl to whom he had been paying his distres ses.

Editor : —l am qaito a lover of fun, and ihinkiug that you have among your nu merous subscribers some who are also fond of that commodity, I thought that I would give you an account of o Babbit chase that I occured on Saiarday lasi on the suburbs aud in the town of I'rizelsburg. in this County. This place, no doubt is well known to moat of your renders. But Mr. Editor let me hero state that although your *ub*crsl>crs may know alt about the town, its locality Ac., they, I feel confident, are not aware of the hospitality and the good feeling of the good citizens of that place towards those who j may be thrown in their midst. They indeed j show, not only to their friends, but also to strangers who may go among them, that j true spirit of hospitality that may always be found in the breast of toe true Southerner. Frizeltiburg will always have in my breast a warm and frtmdlv remembrance of the kind ness and hospitality shown to me by its citizens. Bui t promised to give you some account of a Babbit chase. Xu I was coining down from the house of my old and esteemed friend J. Rinehart, at about eight or nine o’clock, a. in., my ears were sainted with the shout of boys in the highest and wildest state of excitement, mingled with the barking of a host of dogs. The barking of the dogs, the halloping of the boys \ who were about fif teen in number,) and the speed which ex 1 eiteoient lent to their nimble feet, determined me to stop and enjoy the chose. The llab bit crossed the rood juat in front ot* n* and bounded away through one fence, then anoth er, the boys and dogs pursuing at their ut most speed.* Had you, like myself, been there, yon would have laughed to have seen the boys, in their excitement, tumble aud fail aver fence*, rots, gutters and w hat ever might chance to be m their way { this I enjoyed to the fullest extent until the rabbit, dogs, and boys where lost to my view, and passed away like a pageant of life, wit nessed for a moment and then gone forever, loan, A.
