Re hoped ine bill would be p.-issed as it came from the Ju-'ii iurr -ommittee If many amendments were adopted it would ho Incongruous. Mr Drake replied to Mr. Trumbotl, ami in* the re ffuol. I guarding the Southern people against the pos f .) lity or betrayal into the adoption of a constitution aga nst their wishes. The very men who hnd misled these people during the last six years were now re?iy to mislead them again. Mr PMMmrnV| (rep.) of N. J.. believed there van r'fflcient security in the provision requiring the conaont or a majority of the registered voter* to the formation of a constitution. Mr Howakp, (rep.) of Mich., hoped Mr Prnke's amendment would he adopted as a necesxtry protect.>n to ffettinc a full expression of the popular voice. The b'll recently passed holds out a proposition, bv accepting which the Southern Plates may be rehab'iltated"and re?. torod to their rights. He thought It proper to bring the knowledge of these terms to the whole people or the South, and he knew of no better way of doing this than by submitting to them the question whether thev were willing to comply with them. Mr. Pi?m*Das liked the propo?it|on in this bill which required a registration ar t' e vo'ers and secured the ftoe exercise of the right or voters to all who were entitled to it; but he did not think it ought to be made the dutv of a commanding officer to call a convention. That ought to be left to the people. The President was da notmccd for throating upon tho people of the Sooth con. BtUutlons to which they hnd not given their aeaent He ?i. 'blnk that men who had called this usurpation In tho President should favor the eompulsory formation of constitution" now. His mode would be to get the ,-egls tmtlon first, and put it Into the hands of the provisions! coventor* when tho provisional governors expressed a desire to call a convention then the commanding general should do what is required of him to assemble It. He thought it very essential that there should be no forcing of the people imo the formation of a constitution. Ho would wish them neither to be forced into the Union again nor kept out of It forcibly. The Union party bad agreed upon terms on which they could come buck, and 11 oofb* to be left entirely to them to a?*t of their own accord. ..
