Ilr. II <• 1 on I in |»n Mini Hulli'iigi'i Tii.* Congressional Glol* brings us Senator .Morrill's excellent remarks, on e.illiug up the regulate the elective franchise iu the District of Oolumbia. The bill as passed con tains no educational requirement, but it will lie observed that Mr. Morrill expressly declares iu favor of intel'igent suffrage. In the course ol the debate lie endeavored to introduce au educational test by amendment, but without success. The question now goes to the U ouse, where we hope for a better res lit. Mr. Mor rill said: The American people favor the right of sul l'vagc for tile male citizen of full age, supposed 11 be based upon the law and usage that at this age lie becomes tree of the tutelage ot family and is free to manage his own allairs, ilieex eeptious to the rule are of persons non compos mentis, persons deemed infamous from treason, lelnny.’or other high crimes, ]iersons supported at the public charge, and ignorant persons, and those of African descent. Lbe rule is iu harmony with the idea of le publican government and Christian civiliza tion. Some of the exceptions are ill-timed, il logical, and unjust. Poverty is in no just sense a disqualifying fact. On the contrary, society may doubtless protect itself by depriv ing those of political power who have proved faithless to it or made war upon it. In a coun try inhere the means of education arc accessible to all or should be, and a knowledge of the Gov ernment important, it cannot be a grievance that the State should impose the rule of intelligent suffrage. The exceptional foot which stands out in flagrant violation of the common rule ol' suffrage is that wliicli denies the right to the citizen of African descent on account ot his race. me iurDuiuuu V* **““v*-—* tiou iu ouiy one of the States was the negro excluded from the exercise of the right ou ac count ol' his race or color. South Carolina excluded the negro; in other States the ex clusion was confined to condition, and the col ored troeuiau was an elector. In most of the Slates the negro is now excluded; in Borne of them he is admitted upon exceptional terms; in others upon terms of impartiality with the w hites. The proposition of the hill is to restore tho American rule of suffrage at the national capital, to place it upon the republican princi ple, to make our legislation conform to the Constitutions, laws, usages, sentiments aud Opinions of the people of the States at the rev olutionary era of the Republic, when univer sal liberty was an aspiration alike of states men and jieople. in the early constitutions of the States this principle was everywhere recognized and en forced. In the State of Pennsylvania the lan guage was this: "All treedmeu have a right to elect officers, aud he elected to office.” ’That of Delaware was; “Every freedmau hath a right of suffrage.” That ol Mary laud: "All l'reed mea shall have a right of suffrage.” New Vork: "Every person who is a freedmau shall be en titled to suffrage;” and so ou to the end of the chapter, with the single exception of South Carolina. The disability which attached to the African slave was because of coudition, and not of race or color, and everywhere the adult lreedman was deemed entitled to the exercise ol elective franchise. The disability of condi tion now has been abolished, in the progress of events, the development of free institutions, the expansion of the principles of popular rights, the abolition of slavery,thy the provi iilenee of God we have become a nation of fre men in fact as in name. The emancipated slave lias become a freeman aud a citizen, belongs to the body of the American people, aud is no longer the subject of exclusion by either state or nation. Sir, the constitutional amendment which emancipated the slave gives Congress the power to make that freedom ofthu slave com plete. In the spirit of that provision, Congress at its last session enacted thot every person born in the United States is a citizen thereof, and entitled to protection through his civil rights. It remains now to recognize that polit ical equality which is the common right of the American citizen. Sir, we exalt the emancipation proclamation iu the scale of state papers to a place second only to that of the great American Declaration of independence. To its omnipotent spirit we require obedience and submission. We areas sured that the grandeur of its conceptions, its heroism, and elevated patriotism corner immor tal renown on him whose name is most inti mately associated with it;and still, sir, we hes itate to accept the logic of its results. We do not some of us see iiow it is possible to break down the partition walls of prejudice which spring from the relations of master and slave without disrupting society and introducing vi olence and anarchy. We do not understand how a nation can be just to all its people on principle and expect the support of"the virtu ous ruling classes,” aud we do not see how we can survive without them. We have made the i negro slave an American citizen, and we seem to start back from contact wRli him as if his touch were moral add political pollution. We have freed him and we are perplexed to know how to define him, whether a lreedman, tree man, citizen, alien, or denizen. By some of us the rights incident to American citizen ship are utterly denied as the result of emanci pation. So long held aud treated as a slave, a chattel, it is difficult to realize that he is a man. entitled to the recognition due from man to man. We are slow to confess this country his as well as ours, although native-born, and speak of deportation as if the commerce and navies of the world uniting in our folly and crime could accomplish it. We are still iu our sins as to the gospel of one blood tor all human ity and a common brotherhood, and cherish still the fatal delusion of antagonism of races. A statement of a plain proposition or two should dissipate our alarm and settle al) these questions. The negro is a man now and here after in American laws, politics, society, and to be treated as such, tie is a citizen, and enti tled to the common rights'of citizenship and to protection. We may as well comprehend the question of tha negro He will remain here an inhabitant of this country, onr country, his country, aud that not at our option, but by force of laws over which we have no control.— Political history discloses no folly comparable with the attempt to rid r nation by force and violence o( a numerous race of people indige nous to it, as it records no usurpation or royal crime at all equal to it. The negro can not depart if he would. He is to he a constant element of American life, civil, political, in dustrial. He constitutes one-eighth of our population now, and in the future his propor tion will not probably be much less. The race numbers tour millions at tho present and will soon be thirty millions—too many to be immolated, if it were possible, upon the al tar ot our pride and ouv prejudice. The bond of our national unity is not expressed by epi thets “rights ot States,” “State sovereignty,” "community rights:” the fruits of such are in surrection, rebellion, civil war; but in unity of faith in human rights, unity of spirit and pur pose for the development and protection of individual rights. In sueh unity there is com pleteness and power; it links with the moral and social forces of the universe and possesses tho attributes of a boundless energy All at tempts in this country to keep alive the old idea of orders of men, distinctions of class, no ble and ignoble, superior and inferior, are so many efforts at insurrection and anarchy. in a nation of professed freemen whose po litical axioms are those of universal liberty and human rights, no public tranquility is pos sible while these rights are denied to portions of the America!! people. We have taken into the liosom of the Republic the diverse ele ments of tho nationalities of Europe, and are attempting to mould them into national har mony and unity, and are still iuvitiug other millions to come to us. Let us not despairthat the same mighty energies and regenerating forces will he able to assign a docue and not untractable race its appropriate place in our system. THE MARKETS. TEREGRAPHlC REPORTS. Horton Hoot and Shoe Market. Boston, Dec. 13. Tlie wholesale boot and shoe trade are pushing through the dull season, aml| the demand is limited to Bmali parcels for actual sales, and but few orders are coining to hand. Prices, considering the quiet state of trade, are very well sustained, but quotations on goods which it is desirable to close off before the new year, would be quite nominal and would not in dicate those of the next season. For goods now on hand the prices favor the buyer. There is some move ment preparing among the manufacturers for the spring trade, but they do not teel anxious to contract tor goods at much lower rates than what has ruled for the last season, and as yet but few advance orders have been given. Styles for the spring trade do not Indicate any decided change from the present leading kmds.
