It has been rejected by three States: by Delaware, Feb. 8, 1865; by Kentucky, Feb. 23, 1865; and by New Jersey, March 1, 1865. The new State, Colorado, will soon ratify the amendment. North Carolina has embodied the amendment as a part of her State Constitution; and it will be ratified by the Southern States themselves, perhaps, ere it is by New Jersey and Delaware.
