GEORGE RYE, Tres.
G. L. RICHARDS, Sec.
Hon. Z. Chandler.
Mr. TRUMBULL. I am exceed
ingly glad that the Senator from
Michigan has sent this paper tqjhe
desk to be read. It shows, and I wish
Senators to see, the position that the
Senate of the United States and the
Congress of the United States are. to be
placed in according to the theory of
my friend from Michigan. If the
Congress of the United States is to be
made the mere registrar of a Grant
andColfax club in the city of Rich
mond I think Congress had best ad
journ. I WiU rCiid this paper and I
will show upon what the objections is
ihade to the removal of the disabili
ties of this individual. It is simply a
political club in the city of Richmond,
and they state not one fact against the
crson whose disabilities they mouestr
y; asK ;uongress not 10 remove, . ue-
cause tne urant ana uoiiax ciud oi
the city of Richmond advise that it
should not be done. Now, let us see
what they say :
Rooms Grant and Colfax Association,)
RicnMOND, Virginia, Feb. 27, 1869. j
At a meeting of this association, held this
evening, the following resolutions were
unanimously adopted." 4 , .
This la signed by George Rye, pres
ident. and G. L. Richards, secretary.
Who wa3 at the meeting whom they
represented, how extensive the meet-
ng was we nave no lniormatiou wnat-
ever. wnat was tneir resolution
protest against the removal of disabilities
from office holders"
they want the offices
They liavii a right
to have them.
Mr. TRUMBULL, Suppose the
people do not : think projier to elect
them ; suppose the people of Virginia
think proper to elect somebody else;
las the Grant and Colfax club a riglit
to have them ? Does the Senator from
Nebraska mean to say that they have
a right to have them in "defiance of
the people? ., ' . .
Mr. jiowAKJJ. mey nave un
Mr. TRUMBULL. They have un-
doifbtedly the Senator from Michigan
thinks, if tne people tninic proper to
elect a man who does not belong to
the (J rant and Colfax club in the State
of Nebraska, does the Senator from
Nebraska rise here and say they shall
hot be permitted to do it 7 Is that tne
Mr. TIPTON. I say that where the
opinion of the minority of the loyal
people of tnat State and tne opinion or
the Representatives of the loyal peo
ple in Congress have to be united for
his exclusion he is excluded by the
will of the majority of the people of
Mr. TRUMBULL.. Let us sse wnat
the question is. An objection is made
to the removal of tlie disabilities of
Mr. Roprers on this paper. I will read
t to the Senator from Massachusetts
and let us see what it is :
Rcnolved. That this association earnestly
protest airainst the removal of disabilities
from office holders who have in violation of
the constitutional amendment held nnd used
their positions against a proper reconstruct
ion ol this Mate"
They decided what a proper recon
and especially would this association protest
against such removal from Judge John A.
Meredith. William A. Charters. Asa Rosrers
and William E. Taylor, being convinced that
they are not fit subjects for sucn clemency,
but that It would le dangerous nnd tend to
Heolred. That a copy of the above resolu-
-lon be forwarded to prominent Republican
Senators and Representatives In Congress,
and to the Reconstruction Committee."
Do ther state any facts ? Not one.
They say that these parties have been
against a proper reconstruction. What
is a proper reconstruction 7 Are they
to decide that question for the Senate
of the United States? They say they
are convinced "that they are not fit
subjects forsuch clemency." The Sen
ate of the Unitea States has not any
thing to do with it, I suppose, as the
Grant and Colfax association at Rich
mond is convinced that they are not
proper subjects for clemency. Does
that satisfy my friend from Michigan?
Is my friend from Michigan, in all
seriousness, satisfied with that because
they say they arc' not satisfied? Is
that any reason why the political dis
abilities should not be removed? If
this Grant and Colfax association had
stated some facts, something that
these parties had done
Mr. CHANDLER. They are rebels ;
that is all.
Mr. TRUMBULL. Of course they

that we should go to them now. I do

Tlie Siamesfe Twins
Sir James Simpson, the professor
of Midwifery in the University of
Edinburgh, has examined very min
utely, and from every point of scientif
ic Interest, these twins, ana nasj de
livered a lecture to the students of the
University Class on these and other
recorded cases of united twins, of
whom they are in many respects the
most remarkable on record. In this
lecture which ' he published in the
British Medical' Journal, he gives first
their history and discription. Chang
and Eng, or a theyfign themselves
Chancr and Enp;Punkel, are now fifty-
eierht years of ap-e. - Thev were two of
several children ; the rest being natur
ally formed. - V hen infants they were
face to face, but Instinctive euorts
from the earliest age have so far elon
gated the band as to enable them to
adopt an imperfect lateral relation to
each other. They are short but wiry
looking men ; Eng, (he taller of the
t wo, being only five feet two and a half
inshes Chang an inch shorter. They
use the outer legs more than the inner,
by standing, and these are the larger
in circumference, lliere Is no inver
sion ot position oi tne ncart ana oin
er organs, as Professor Allen Thomp
son, of Glasgow, has shown to be the
general law in relation to united twins.
Neither of the respirations nor circu
lations of the two brothers are syncn-
onous. lixamined in ii.ainDurgn Dy
Dr. Aitken, when they were sutlering
from influenza, the pulse of one was
twenty-four beats to the minute quick
er than the other. Examined this
week in London by Sir Henry Thom
son and Mr. Ernest Hart, there was
less difference by four pulsations in a
minute. In their chemical as well as
their organic functions, they are shown
bv Sir James Simpson to be two sepa
rate and distict individuals. They can
walk, swim and run ; they are keen
sportsmen and good shots, intelligent,
well informed and good men of busi
ness. They are naturally much accus
tomed to join in the same conversa
tion, but can easily carry on conver
sation with two difiercnt individuals.
They sometimes read separately each
to himself; more often one aloud to
the other. Their minds, indeed are
more dual than their bodies ; the lat
ter are united together, but the for
mer are not. The bond of union is
formed partly by the extension of the
cartilages of the breast bone ; it is four
incnes anu a nan jong.ana eignmtcii
es and a half in circumference. When
tlie twins have suffered from blood
diseases, as small-pox, measles, ague,
they have been affected simultaneous
ly. Nevertheless, from experiments
which Sir James Simpson has made
with drugs, he concludes that the vas
cular connection between the two
brothers is comparatively very small.
On the question of the surgical sepa
ration of the Siamese Twins, "Chang
and Eng,". says Sir James Simpson,
"have themselves no desire to be sur
gically divided from each other. But
some of their relatives and families
have become anxious that they sho'd
le separated, if it were possible to do
so. The operation is certainly possi
ble, and would be attended with little
or indeed no difficulty; but it would
be so perilous in its character that the
twins could not, in.;my opinion, be
justified in gubniit$h)g to it, or any
surgeon justineu.in pcriormiug it."
He then enters .into -details to justify
this opinion.: .Chang and 'Eng are
married to two sisters, the daughters
of an 'American clergyman. Each
brother has nine children. The fam
ily of Eng consists of six sons and
three daughters; the family of Chang
consists of three sons and six daught
ers. Their.,' first children were born
within three or four days of each oth
er; tbe others at irregular intervals.
Chang's youngest child was born three
months ago. Sir W. Ferguson has
carefully examined the twins, and,

opinion of surceonsHhat anv surgical
operation would be most likely atten

much on account of ariv olwtacle pre

disunion on the two brothers:

YFliy don't Doys Learn Trades?
The present generation of our young
meri siiem td have a strong aversion to
every liirid of trade, business, calling
or occupation that requires manual
labor, and an equally strong tendency
towards some so-called "genteel" em
ployment or profession. The result is
seen in the superabundance of elegant
penmen, bookkeepers and clerk3 of
every kind who can get nd employ
ment, and are wasting their lives in
the vain pursuit of what is not to be
had ; arid a terrible overstock of law
yers witnout practice, and doctors
without patients. T he passion on tne
port Of the boys and young meif to be
Clerks, office attendants, messengers,
anything, so that it is not work of the
kind that will make them mechanics
dr tradesmen, is, a deplorable sight to
to those who have full opportunities
to see the distressing effects' Of it in
the struggle for such employments by
those unfortunates who have put it out
of their power to do anything else by
neglecting to learn some permanent
trade or business in which trained skill
can always be turned to account: The
applications for clerkships and similar
positions in large establishments are
numerous beyond anything that wo'd
be thought of by those who have no
chance to witness it. Parents and rel
atives, as well as the boys and JjtfuDg
men themselves, se'emed to be afflicted
with the same infatuatidn. To all
such we say, that the most unwise ad
vice you can give to your boy Is to en
courage him to be . a 'clerk or book
keeper. ' At the best, it is not a well
paid occupation. Very frequently it
is among the very poorest. -This is the
case when the clerk is fortunate en
ough to be employed; but if he sho'd
be out of place, then comes fhe weary
search, the fearful struggle with tne
thousands of dtlie'fs lotkirig for places,
the never ending disappointments, the
hope deferred that makes the heart
sick, the strife with rfdf erty, the hu
miliations that take all the manhood
out of the poor souls, tlie privations
and sufferings of those who depend
upon his earning, and who have no
resource when he is earning nothing.
No father, no mother, no relative
should wish to see their boy or kindred
wasting their young lives in striving
after the genteel positions that bring
i. a , i f ii
such trims uuu prtuiiuna upou mem
in after life.
How do these deplorably false no
tions as to choice of occupation get into
the heads of -boys? Why do they or
their parents consider it more Vgen
teel" or desirable to run errands, sweep.
out offices, make fires, copy letters,
etc., than to make hats or shoes, or lay
bricks, or wield the saw or jack-plane,
or handle the mechanic's file, or the
blacksmith's hammer? We have
heard that some of them get these
notions at school. If this be true, it is
a sad perversion of the means of edu
cation provided for our youth, which
are intended to make tnem useiui
members of society, and not useless
drags and drones. Should it be so
that the present generation of boys
get it into their heads that, because
they have more school learning and
book accomplishment than their lath
ers had, they must look down Upon
the trades that require skill and hand
icraft, and whose productions make
up the vast mass or tne weaun or
every country, then it - is time for the
controllers and the directors to have
tlie interior walls of ourschool houses
covered with maxims, and mottoes
warning them against the fatal error.
Dear Boys: I desire to address a
short letter to you, from time to time,
on the injurious effects of tobacco. I
have, written and preached against
this poison twenty years and more,
and, as a sailor might say, "I know
every rope in the ship." Great and
good men, over the nation, have often
written me letters respecting this evil.
and all I shall now do is to give you a
letter from the Hon. Gerritt Smith,
Peterborro, N. Y. This may serve as
an entering wedge to what I may say
to you hereafter. Mr. Smith is a large
man. with a large mind, a large heart.
and what is rather extraordinary, he
has a large purse. He loves Uod and
his fellow men ; he loves young Amer
ica, and he loves you, and should you
see him, you could not but love him.
for he is a princely man. ? Hence I

Court to-day by Montgomery Blair for
plain tiffin error and by Senator Drake
for defendant in error. The cae in
volves the constitlitiohality of the
Missouri test oath.
Montgomery Blair. Itl the' course of
his argument, said that Francis P.
Blair, jr. could not take the oath ;
that he bad never resorted to arms, for
the purpose of overthrowing the State
government of Missouri, because at
the outbreak of the rebellion, in Oc
tober, 1801), he organized a military
force to protect the U. S. Arsenal at
St. Louis, and afterwards organised
four regiments and' tendered them to
the government with which to oper
ate, and which captured Camp Jack-
gOri. Tlie bath prescribed by the Con
stitution of Missouri is called the oath
of disloyalty, for it required a man to
swear he stood by tbe government of
the State which made war upon that
of the United States.
Senator Drake, in his reply, defend
ed the State constitution, and argued
that it is essential to protect the State
from its enemies by excluding them
from participation in Its government.
None but qualified votcr3 can exercise
political power, and it is by and thro'
the ballot that the power can be exer
cised by tlie fiebble : tho constitution
