V, 'he Registry Wa Carrmll. it was generally eapected here that the Governor weuld have to appoint 1 now Registers and that these who gave 1 no much difficulty last year would be gotten rid of this year. Great wan the surprise, however, whea we learned, Uat Friday, for the first time, that all the old Hegistcis were continued by law for two yaurs from their appointment last year. We had no representatives to attend to this mutter, but we thought every body had heard of the abuse to ■ which Gov. Swann had been subjected for trying t propitiate three of hia ap puinlee* who had turned out to be hard Radicals. The number of registered men in the County won about 4200 out of about S'lOO voters in the ooeoly, la Man ohester District slope over 400 wore disfranchised, owing to the monstrous emstraotioa of the law mde by the Register: no that a district, which would have given ns 330' majority was mode to give 75 majority on the oth er aide. Even whore mew were regis tered the Judge* of oteetion. all Radi ala, rejected man; of them at tho hal lot box. In this manner was their ma jority of *OO obtained. We few now that some of our people, smarting under tho outrage* of past yuan, may refuse tw appear before some of these Begirt era. We think this would he a at stoke: for we think there Register* nmr folly understand (he change df||rw t iu*Unee*, and the pea allies they might, iuenr, sntl will bn as liberal this year, sa they wore illiberal late year. They noted under advice last year, that they had confidence io; but we aluwld think they cannot be mislead mw. At all events, let the diafranefifcufi wise forward, and teal' &ic mailer. till unties. We refer pvir reader* to the advertise. •MtofWml li. Hill Esq. of Baltimore In thi* week*paper, who sk M the i>. tain went cf Bounties and Cia'in* gene * nJ al ‘ d * r Lawn of ftbrjland. We pabliah, An- weak, bj authority, three very important laws pasted at \ the late sciwkiu of the Legislature, hav-S i Inga partiouiai ltearlugnu the approaeh : iug election, Thu Eiifrsnuhfaemont Act resloros to ihe right of suffrage all j who were debarred by the fourth sec tiou of the first Article of ibo Cnustitu 1 lion, relating to the lute rebellion, or ' the false construction put upon it and , the late Registry law by the Radical*. | This has Iwcu done by a two thirds vote : 1 of both branches of the Legislature, pursuant to express power granted by j ' the Constitution itself, it restored all | our oitiious to the condition before the j I war, and is a full pardon forany connec tion or sympathy with the rebellion, in {the very mode provided by the Connti \ tutiou for the purpose. It is too clear . fur doubt, though some may pretend tbit it requires each individual to be uau:ed iu the act. The Constilatiou didnot say so, and it is fully to contend, when a whole class was included, that individuals should be specified. The new Registry law is now a sim ple matter. The -kill faction. Ist Ar ticle, having ceased to operate hy its ‘ own limitation, all must be registered j who have the proper (|ualifioation of | age, residence, color, soundmiud, not j convicted of felony, or guilty of bribery ; at elections Ac Tho amendment to live election law . pats an cud to lire (tower claimed by , election Judges to reject registered vu-, ters. We hope all will study and ob serve three laws. The ctertlen. M'e are softy that to little time was given to attend to this important elec J tiou as the Convention question. It \ was delayed to long in the Senate to secure the two thirds vote that the time originally named should, by all means, have been extended. As it is, we la- 1 bar under great disadvantages Our I'rleads hare but a few days to be regia- | tered and can hardly be all informed of; it in time. Neither will all be inform ed of the election even, and if they are.' many will not have a chance to under j stand fully the merits of tbo question ; We fear, indeed, many will be induced to vote against tho Convention from I want of time to clear away their preju I dices All should be dune that is pos sible to induce our friends to register ! and to vote. Though the lime is short, 1 yet if tbo will was there, as be accomplished as if the longcß time' hud been given. Then let all who have \ an interest in this matter go to work, i or hereafter cease to complain. Person* who have removed to differ ent districts should get the certificates of the Registers where they came from , and get registered where they reside.— j All who are awaro of parties requiring j registry should not let them neglect it. Radical convention. | The Radical State Convention, which I reassembled at Baltimore, on the 27th. ! ult., resolved that they wo 11 not run I any Oondidutre at tho -’lection next j Wednesday, but go to the polls and I I vote against * Convention Should it ■ i be carried they will then proceed to ; ' elect by ballot, without distinction of j i color, delegates to a Convention of their j j own to meet iu Baltimore and adopt a i Constitution based on “universal man i hood suffrage.” A committee was ap ! painted who visited Washington to lay ; their case before Congress. The ultra members doubtless have assured them that they will get the aid of Congress. Tho Badieal members of the Legialuturo the Mayor 4 City Couoeil of Baltimore, as well as the Grand League, have also importuned Congress for the tamo pur pose.
