A. H. Stephens before the from which we take the not included in the telegraphic synopsis published in the News and Herald of Mr. views in regard to negro suffrage and the constitutional rights of the States will be universal interest and approval by the people of is the public sentiment of Georgia with to the of the right of voting to the negroes general opinion in the State is very much averse to a sitien were to amend the constitution so as to have representation in Congress based upon voters would Georgia ratify such a proposed if it were made a condition precedent to the restoration of the State to political power in the Government do not think they The of in my as far as I can reflect or represent their feel that they are under the constitution of the United to without any further condition They would not object to discuss and exchange views in the common councils of the with the other upon such a or any proposition to amend the Constitution or change it in any of its and they would abide by any if made as the Constitution provides but they feel that they arc constitutionally entitled to be by their Senators and members in the Houses of upon this or any other proposed I do think that they would ratify that amendment suggested cond -tion precedent to her being admitted to representation in at least is my at the people of would neither be willing to extend suffrage to the nor consent to the ex elusion of the negroes from the basis of representation people of in my are perfectly willing to leave and the basis of representation where the Constitution leaves it. They look upon the question of suffrage as one belonging exclusively to the one over and under the Constitution of the United Congress has no power or except in proposing amendments to the States and not in exacting them from and I do not that the people of are as I believe to deal justly generously with the would be willing to consent to a change in the Constitution that would give Congress jurisdiction over the question of and especially would they be very much averse to Congress exercising any such jurisdiction their representatives in the Senate and House being heard in the public councils upon the question that so vitally concerns their internal as well as all the internal policy of all the the proposition were to be submitted to as one of the eleven States lately in that she might be restored to political power in the Government of the country the condition precedent that she on the one hand extend suffrage to the or on the other consent to their exclusion from the basis of would she accept either proposition and take her place in. the Government of the country I can only give my I do not think she accept er as a condition precedent presented by Congress for they do not believe that Congress has the rightful under the Constitution to prescribe such a If Georgia is a State in the Union her people feel that she is entitled to representation without conditions imposed by and if she is not a State in the Union then she could not admitted as an equal with the if her admission were trammeled with that do not apply to all the rest universal the colored people as they are by our be regarded as about as great a political evil as could the proposition were to extend the right of suffrage to those who could read and those who had served in the Union would that modification the of the think the people of the would be to do more than for restoration or limited not be so ad general or but it iff a matter that belongs to StaW to The of 9u|ragey whether or is one of State as I net be opposed to a restricted or elass of oor but in my judgment it ift a matter that constitutional right to the States to reflate each for But the people of that as I have would not I do more than they have done fot The only in their that could justify the war which was earned on by the Federal Government against them was the idea of the Indissolubleness of the that those who held the administration for the time were bound to enforce the execution of the and the maintenance of the integrity of the Union under the Constitution and since that was since those who had the contrary the right of and the of the had abandoned their and tho here was successful in maintaining the idea upon which it was and and the only view it could be justified at and when that was accomplished I say the people of Georgia supposed their State was immediately entitled to all her rights under the That is my opinion of the sentiment of the people of and I do not think they would be willing to do anything further as a condition precedent to their being permitted to enjoy the full measure of their constitutional I only give my opinion of the sentiment of the at the time they that as soon as the Confederate cause was abandoned that tho States would be brought back into their practical relations with the Government as previously That is what they looked They expected that the State would immediately have its Representatives in the and they expected in good as loyal as the term is frequently (I mean by loyal to law and and to the to support the Government under the That was their policy They did what they believing it was best for the protection of constitutional Toward Constitution of the United as they construed the great mass of our people were always as much devoted in their feelings as any people tp any This is my as I before they reported to with a view of maintaining mere these and when they found they were not in their in perfect fifOOd as far as I can judge from meeting with them and conversing with looking to futuro developments of their country in its material as well as its moral and intellectual their earnest desire and expectation was to allow the past lamentable as it was in its to pass and to co-operate with the tme friends of the of all sections who earnestly strive for the preservation of constitutional liberty and the perpetuation of the Government in its They have been a little disappointed in and are so They are patiently and believing that when the passions of the hour have passed away this delay in will They think they have done everything that was essential and and my judgment is that they would not be willing to do anything further as a condition They would simply remain quiet and your own judgment approve the view you have given as the opinion of the people of the judgment is very decided that the question of suffrage belongs under the and wisely to the States and Is it your opinion that neither of the alternatives suggested in the question ought to be accepted by the people of Georgia own opinion that these terms ought not to be offered as conditions In other my opinion is that it would be best for the harmony and prosperity of the whole country that tuere should be an immediate and mediate bringing back of the States into their original and let all these questions then be discussed in Then the representatives of South could be and you and all could judge much better of the tone and temper of the people could of the opinions given by any You may take my opinion or the opinion of any but they will not enable you to judge of the of the people of the State so well as for her own representatives to be heard in your public in her own My judg is very decided that it would have been as as the lamentable conflict was when the people of the South abandoned their cause and agreed to accept the desiring as they do to resume places for the future in tho to look to the halls of and the protection rights in the would bave been better to allow that result to follow under the policy by tiie Administration than to it binder it by propositions to amend the Constitution in respect to or any other new on 8BCOJVD
