S. I1- Vor ilio Tribune Political. ImT us Ihe re.ul- ing of various articles in lato Demo- cratic journals, my attention has been called lo the following partic- ulars: 1st. The right of a man claim- ing1 to be (i Democrat and opposing universal sullVage. 2nd. The right of Slates lo regulate sutlrago or in other words lo subject uuHVago and dutcH'iinc who shall be voters. 3rd. The rig-lit which Congress did pos- sess during (he rebellion to abolish slavery. I propose to spend a few minutes in the investigation of these partiuulars, and 1st. The right of a man claiming, to be to opppsc universal sulVr.igo. Tho term Democrat is derived from two Greek word the people, ami rule or govern. A Dem- ocracy therefore id a government by the people or a govcnncnt where the people rule, and if the people rule, it must be all the people and not a part of the people. The only question (hen to be determined whether (he coloicd race should be allowed to vote by tho Democracy is: whether they are really persons or Xow as lho Demoei-rtls claim to be constitutional men, perhaps the Con- stitution of (he United Slates would be good aulhorily on this In the convention that framed tlio United Slafcsgi-aulingrtiiy such priv- ilege lo the Ii.ire not how much it has been exercised. The. clause in the Constitution in which this power has been supposed lo ex- ist is found in the tenth Article of Ihe Ainc'mliucuU. Tlie entire Article reads thus "The powers not dele- gated lo ilio United Slate by the Con- stitution nor prohibited by it to the SlUes, arc reserved to the Slates re- spectively, or lo the' people." Here we find that the people are placed nborn the States, consequently the States have no right to lakoaway Ihc rights of Ihe people. 'A State has a perfect right under the Constitution to say thai every man shnll ben voter, but has no right under the Constitu- tion to say'thai n man shall not be a voter unless guilty of crime. This Article in the Constitution, therefore, does nol give to the Stales the power to restricts tho right of z-Tiiiintf-iihi, arUel5_Jtocr' particular, rights thai Congress did posse-is during Ihc Re- bellion to abolish slavery. I remem- ber very well when (he Rebellion broke out I was living in Iowa. I lold the people they never could pul down the Rebellion without last abolishing slavery. Tin-re ere a few others of same opinion biitn great majority, cvenjofthe Republican par- ty, wore opposed to modeling wilh slavery. They were nol willing to violate the CcnMiliilion and they Iho'l (he Constitution protected sla- very. For about eighteen months the war was conducted tipnit the principle us it called of defend- ing the -.onstitution and the Union without meddling wilh JCot having made much progress in all (his towards pulling down Ihc Rebellion, .some of our wisest StatpPUiQii begun to think (lint the opinion entertained by some of us who were r.uhcrobscure was correct and that slavery imifcl be abolished. They icsolved lo do it a iniUU-.-y necessity. Let us look a litlle nl (hi1 given to Congress In this Constitution of U. S., Ar'licle, 1-t, Section Slh, clause lilli. Congress shall have powei '-To provide foi culling for Ihe malilia lo execute (lie laws, of Ihc Union, snppiess iiisur- reclions and ropcl invasions." And in Kighfccnth clnii.sc same Section and Article "To make l.ivt s which shall be necessary and proper for earning into execution the foregoing According (o Ai'llulo 2nd, Section 2nd, Ihe President is Comur.indor-iu- chief of the Army and Navy, it is the duty of Ihe President and Con- gress io put down .Rebellion.
