' The New York Times, "thel: organ of
the' epos'nte Raymond T .in an editorial
Sepu, 13th, after '.gi'jo the act fixing
the number . cf '.members cf the U. S.'
Representatives, says : i --
' -By law Congress thus'eensists of 241
members, and by law, al-o. a majority , o
the whole nurtber, or 121 memhers, con
stitute a quorum. Suppose the members
elected from. the Southern States should
meet in December, 1S67, and be enough,
lidded to Northern members who believ
ed in iheir right to representation, and
who would meet with them, to constitute
a quorum ; and suppose the Northern
members"' who do not believe the South
tnm!d lo representation and who would
net meet;with them should met t by tht-rn
eelve-, constituting Ies.thao a quorum of
the whole number. The Pittsburg Chron
icle begins to see the possibility of such
an occurrence ; and it also sees that the
President will be under the necessity of
recognizing cna or the other of these
bies as the vatid, Constitutional House
of Representatives. -He must send hi
mesr:ie to the, ens or tj the other."1 He
must sign bills passed by the one or the
ether. He mut treat one or the other
as a branch of Congress,' clothed 'with
the power cf making laws; and the other
as havijig no euih' authority. And i;a

Hbvv the problen of representation
will be arTected ly the freeitvg of the
slaves of the South by the late rebellion.
is a question on which there is much per
plexity with the masses, and has been
much misrepresented by the copperhead
piress cf the land. To the better under-
standing cf thia "question 'we copy from
the Constitution of- the United States' the
st'Ctian which now controls representation:
2. Representatives and direct taxes
shall be apportioned among the several
States which may be included within this !
Union, according to their respective num
bers, which fchall be determined. by add
ing to the whole number of free peron
including those bound for a tetm oi year?,
and excluding Indians nut taxed three-
ffthscf alt other persons. , : , i!
3 -This three fifths concession 1 to - the
slave power of the 'South gave them the
right to count five - slaves the same- ou
their . representative apportionment, as
three" free persons and this was .voted
on exclusively bythe whites. " Thui, if
a planter had 250 slaves, worth perhaps,
SlSO.OOO and many had double that
iiUiber--his single vote for Congressmeu
or Presidential Elector would count 150
times as muci as the vote or John Jacob
Astor.' whe was worth $40,000 COO. This
tvaa the shape things were iii when the
rbellion broke; cut. . : j ;.. . '.:,:
Ttat the freeing of the slaves has made,
a change' in the' Constiiutiou Uoces?ary:
must hk apparent to the too?!, ordinary jsiv
tetlecu.. The cause, quoted above4 unless
changed, would count the negroes" the
tame as free personi, increase the politi
cal rrpreseniation oj the rebel Stales, and
still ihe voting population be the same !
Thus, in the above example, the southern
planter stripped of his main wealth
through his1 treason catsa vote noto
which counts 250 times as much as any
man in the North who pays thrice as much
internal revenue tax each year as , the
Southerner is worth the Southerner
thus gaining the power of -100 free per
sons through his treason. ' -,
The Chicago TVt&une gives the follow
ing facts and figures lo illustrate :
The whole number of .; seats in the
House of. Representatives is limited by
law to, 241 for the thirty -six organized
States. They are apportioned between
the North and South as follows.
: Free State bars 155 aeatf.
. Late Slare States hare Si seat.
This division is bised on the status, of
slavery, which made five slaves count, a
three free persons. But slavery being
abolished, the freedmen would count the
.-ame as free white persona, unless the
Constitutional "Amendment is adopted,
notwithstanding the are all disfranchis-
. ,.; : ..
t The , enfranchised populaiion of the
United States, according to the census of
J550j in r9uR4 pumbers, was as follows:

. Divide t' is,numberrby .the 241 seats
and 'l produces as the ratio of represen
tation. '111,200 persons per seat.1' On
this basis ihe Northern States would be
entitled la 169 seats in the House of Rep
resentai've. and the South 'to 72 seats.
But if the Copperjohnson scheme of rep.
f esentatioa "should-be adopted, the North
will lose' iiseritythrit feati and the South
gain a? many, making' a relative lo;s of
political power of forty -six votes1 in Con

This is the question which we must
decide on the 9th of October; not direct
ly, but by sustaining the' Union ticket,
whose Platform is the Amendment, or
the Copper-johnson, ticket, .whose- Plat
form is opposition to the Amendment and
