Ironclad age in the bibles of thirty years ago the Devil was pictured As a terrible scaly dragon with formidable fangs and claws and a Large spiral Tail ending in a bearded Spike. A heavy Chain was fastened to his neck by an Iron Collar and the other end of the Chain not the Devi was held by a fellow in his night gown with big Goose wings growing on his Shoul Der Blades. The Devil was spouting fire and smoke from his Mouth and nostrils As the Good Book says is a habit with Quot Gor Amity Quot also and both walked on Clouds of smoke seeming to wish no better foundation. The angelic policeman held a key about two feet Long in his other hand and from the Stern manner in which he looked at his prisoner seemed to be taking him to the Ca Laboose. When a child i did Fiot in he least doubt the i a Lily and correctness of the portrait and of How i feared and trembled when viewing this picture that was the old Devil of the old damnation. They assigned him to duty in Quot a Bell of a place Quot a al of fire and Brimstone and his duty consisted in burning forever if not longer bodies that could not possibly be burned. Yet he was not required to remain continually in so warm a climate himself As he had a plenty of subs to do to the stoking but was allowed to go tearing around Quot like a roaring lion seeking whom he might but with Progress in science with increasing intelligence comes necessary changes in religion in order to adapt it to the newly discovered facts it has heretofore flatly contradicted. Thus in the course of time the Church has been obliged to give up its Flat four cornered Earth its revolving Sun its Ocean and heaven supporting Quot firmament Quot its theory of rain pouring through windows in the said firmament the creation of the universe six thousand years ago a blazing hell of hell fire and witches and wizards and slavery and polygamy and Many others once held to be scripture and right. But it always Dies hard and while it had the Power to muzzle science and imprison rack or Burn the meddlesome discoverer it had smooth sailing. But we Are digressing. As soon As hell began to Cool Down it was seen the Devil required remodel i to suit the new conditions. He is now represented As being donned in the image of god for be has the form of Man and Man it is said was made in the image of Godard when he gets his sunday clothes on his Tail curled away out of sight his hair greased and brushed Down Over his horns and his Cloven feet hidden in a pair of neat fitting boots he is a Devilish Good looking fellow and not half so Black As he was formerly painted. From All this it is evident that no authentic account exists As to his birth and Early history but judging from an orthodox standpoint Viz god created All things the Devil was made too by god. The idea inculcated by the Quot scripture according to Milton Quot and Avrich is orthodox in the absence of any other evidence bearing on the subject is to the effect that his infernal highness once held one of the most important and lucrative offices in the celestial Empire not chinese but Josh s with a big Jand was the acknowledged Leader of his party. He gained Power and popularity to such a degree that he resolved to overthrow the reigning dynasty and establish a Republic instead and precipitated a revolution accordingly. There was a terrible Battle in which none of the combatants could be either killed or wounded or even tired resulting in a hardly bought Victory for Josh Over his ambitious rival. He candidly owned himself beaten and inquired of the Victor what was his pleasure. Quot go to hell Quot responded the still irate Josh. Tis said he went taking with him an army of adherents that left heaven very desolate and lonesome for every fellow that could Tell a Good Story sing a Good song or was a Good Bat at base Ball had packed his Knapsack and marched with the Devil. At no great distance in the past we might have wondered that so Many should have so chosen but since the late revision of the Bible and other discoveries it has been ascertained that a very erroneous idea has prevailed regarding the climate of that much abused country and the character and diversions of its inhabitants As Well. From our own knowledge of the generality of passengers who take the Down train for hades we cannot believe them doomed to live in a climate so unpleasantly warm As the pulpit Pounders still insist this continues or that those we had known As Good Fellows in this life should become such Hon id fiends merely by a change of location. Equally strange and inexplicable is t h e Means through which the red handed murderer the brutal destroyer of innocence and virtue in fact the most foul and fiendish criminal by the prayers and exhortations of a Petty Pimp of pious palaver during the few hours pre feeding the adjustment of the fatal noose is launched into eternity As an Angel of Light bound for eternal glory with the usual accompaniment of wings a musical instrument and a Long White Canton flannel gown Quot washed in the blood of the Quot suffer them to come unto me and forbid them not for such is the kingdom of heaven Quot a Viz children felons fanatics and fools. The first scene in which the Devil figures on Earth is in the Garden where As a walking talking Snake he induces mrs. Eve to eat some fruit from Josh s particular tree. Josh had told her and Adam that they should die upon the Day they ate that fruit. The Devil told them they would not. Which told t he truth ? the Snake or Devil told them the eating would give them knowledge of Good and evil. Was that not the result according to the Story Here some important questions arise. Does not the very fact that Adam and eve required to eat at All prove their mortal character this threatened death then could not have meant a physical death since they continued to live. If it is contended that the death Here referred to is spiritual then we must believe Adam eve and All humanity before Christ to have gone at once to hell. Take which Ever Horn of the dilemma you will it places Josh in a very embarrassing situation. Eve ate an Apple and tool one to her old Man and when he reproved her for meddling with Josh s pippins she smiled sweetly and said Quot i Don t care a dam Quot and he said he did t care a dried Apple Adam ate 2. When we compare the deeds Josh did with those attributed to the Devil but which we have no account of his having done except in the Case of poor old Job and then at the instance of Josh himself we cannot fail to Mark the striking difference in the character of the two personages and Are often involved in doubt As to which of them should be attributed the greater Power and influence Over the destinies of Mankind. Undoubtedly the Devil gets the most consignments. You hear fifty Quot go to the devils Quot to one Quot go to m. W. J. The practice of civilized nations so strictly civil practice purely derivative from and re Golatz of by each society Jaccoi Ding to its own circumstances and interests. Certain classes that will readily occur to mind have been almost universally excluded. The Constitution of our Federal Union did not undertake to interfere with the established Rule of local right and class exclusion. By the original Constitution of 1789 the whole organism of each body politic participating in federation and which As a Colony or state formed one of the constituents 6t the Union was left to itself. What class or portion of the whole people of any state should be admitted to suffrage and should by virtue of such admission exert the Active and potential control in the direction of its affairs was a question re served exclusively for the determination of the state. There was no limitation placed upon the Power of the state except what May be implied from tie constitutional requirement that the United states should guaranty to each state a Republican form of government. It has never been seriously insisted upon that this guaranty Quot involved the Power to regulate suffrage. It found states with a Republican form of government which denied civil As Well As i o tical rights to a Large mass of its population. It found states wherein the mass of its people were held in bondage As slave. The guaranty of a Republican form of government to each state did not require the United states to elevate slaves to a condition of Freedom or Confer upon them the privileges of suffrage. This fat Rin. Ciple of Independence prevails not alone As to state governments but even As to suffrage when exercised in the election of representatives in Congress. It is claimed that there is a very close analogy Between the present condition of women denied the political privilege of suffrage and that of the former slaves and that the same reason which operated to induce the adoption of the amendments putting a limit on the originally extensive right of each state to regulate suffrage should be made to apply to what is com non by known and called woman suffrage. Indeed the express object of the proposed amendment is to further limit the Powers of the theoi7 upon which they rest. The condition of slavery alleged is existing in the Case of women is wholly without foundation in fact unless the condition which nature assigned her is to be so considered and construed. Her functions in civil society Are co ordinate with those of Man differing in their sphere of action but not antagonistic. Woman is not the slave but the companion of Man. Her duties Are As Noble As his though widely differing. Her True sphere is not restricted but is boundless in resources and consequences. In it she May engage every Energy of the mind and every affection of the heart while within its limitless Compass under Providence she exercises a Power and influence beyond All other agencies for Good. She trains and guides the life that is and forms it for the eternity and immorality that Are to be. From the rude Contact of life Man is her shield he is her guardian from its conflicts he is the defender of her Quot rights in his Home and the Avenger of her wrongs everywhere. In the Shadow of this defense not Only is she shielded and protected but in it Man himself is permitted to play his most exalted part in the social Economy. The Christian system conserves the peace and Harmony of their Home and invests with sacred solemnity their relations of Man and wife. To the husband by natural allotment in such a Home Falls the duties which protect and provide for the household and to the wife the More quiet and secluded but no less exalted duties of Mother to their children and mistress of the domicile. To permit the Entrance of political Contention into such a Home would either be useless or pernicious. Useless if Man and wife agree and pernicious if they differ. In the former event the volume of ballots alone would be increased without changing the results. In the latter the peace and Contentment of Home would be exchanged for the bedlam of pro tical debate and become the scene of base and demoralizing intrigue. The exceptional cases of unmarried females Are too rare to change the general policy while expectancy and Hope constantly being realized in marriage Are happily a tin gushing the exceptions and state in the premises by forbid Quot bringing All within the Rule which Ding that sex should be a bar 46 the exercise of suffrage. That the analogy claimed exists and the amp to like reasons support the amendment As were successfully urged in the Case of the slave your committee deny. When the thirteenth amendment was adopted by the states declaring slavery forever at an end an act not of the United states but of the several states ratifying the same under the terms of the Constitution a new condition of things arose for which i the states provided new amendments. The civil rights of the newly emancipated race were secured by a fourteenth amendment presenting limits of state Power and the two races which had hitherto stood upon unequal grounds under and before the Law were placed upon a plane of civil Equality. All civil rights and privileges accorded to one were thus guaranteed to both races. Under the influence of a just fear that without suffrage As a protective Power to the newly acquired rights and privileges guaranteed to the former slave he might suf Fer detriment and with this dominant motive in View originated the fifteenth amendment. It will be noted that by this later amendment the privilege of suffrage is not sought to be conferred on any class but an inhibition is placed upon the states from excluding from the privileges of suffrage any class on account of race color or previous condition of servitude. Other limitations not trespassing upon these inhibitions might and do still continue to exist in All the states. Woman suffrage the congressional committee Pernest it or. Maybury s report to Tho House on that subject. The following is or. Maybury s report on woman suffrage the committee on the judiciary to which has been referred the joint Resolution a proposing in amendment to the Constitution of the United states extending the right of suffrage to women Rould respectfully report As follows the right of suffrage is not and never has under our system of government been one of the essential rights of citizenship. Like other rights it whether founded in natural Law or not the right to vote has always been treated in the dangers apprehended and to be guarded against by constitutional enactments at the time of the adoption of the amendments cited Are embraced in the history of our Day and Are beyond the Pale of doubt or dispute. Two heterogeneous races wholly separated in social position by previous historic relations and without Kindred sympathies would naturally be so antagonized in interest that Power committed to the hands of one exclusively might be abused to the injury of the other. In order that each might be self protected Power was Given to both. Such in Brief is the history of the later constitutional amendments the motives and circumstances Wielb compassed their origin and the applies to the wife and Matron. In respect to married women it May Well be doubted whether the influences which result from the Laws of property and personal rights Between Man and wife would not make it improbable that the woman should exercise her suffrage with Freedom and Independence this too in spite of the fact that the dependence of women under the common Law has been almost entirely obliterated by statutory enactments. At All events the Power proposed to pass Laws to carry woman suffrage would be held to give Congress the Power to intrude upon the marital relations in the states and the rights of property incident thereto and As to which your committee a great objection. In answer to the question often suggested As to what proportion and what class of women would Avail themselves of the privileges of suffrage if extended to women we Are of the opinion that while a few intelligent women a such As appeared before the committee in advocacy of the appending measures would defy All obstacles in the Way of their casting the ballot yet the great mass of the intelligent refined and judicious with the becoming modesty of their sex would shrink from the rude Contact of the crowd and with the exceptions mentioned leaving to the ignorant and vile the exclusive right to speak for the gentle sex in Public affairs. Your committee is of the opinion that the general policy of female suffrage should remain in abeyance so far As the general government is concerned until the states and communities directly chargeable under our system of government with the exercise and regulation of this privilege shall put the Seal of the Constitution upon it and there certainly can be no reason for the amendment of the Constitution to Settle a question within the jurisdiction of the states and which they should first Settle for themselves. Your committee is not unmindful of the fact that on a submission of the question of extended suffrage in several of the states a negative answer has been returned by the people thereof. In the opinion of your Cona Mittee and in View of the difficulties in repairing an error once fixed udon the Faud mental Law great caution is the highest Wisdom in amending the Constitution. Each amendment should partake of the character imparted to the instrument itself which is a thing of growth not the origin of rights and i Inci Plesz but sanctifying and confirming great and accepted principles of government of prior existence to itself. Your committee do not find the principle of female suffrage so universally accepted As that an amendment to the Constitution is demanded to declare and confirm its existence. We therefore recommend that the joint Resolution for the submission of a sixteenth amendment to the Constitution As proposed be not adopted. A god s e. S.
