In the stories we read, In the tales that are told Of Damon, Orestes, And David, of old— Dwells immortal the fame Of the irteudsbip ofyre, Tlirilliug true in warm hearts As the brave ever bore. Yet believe not all faith Has gone down with the past, That those unions of snul Were the truest and laat— I have heard ofour day, In the land where we dwell, Tales of friendship as firm As old rhapsod'iBts tell. Like ring-doves well mated, Two comrades I knew, Which from childhood to age, Undivided still grew; Whether Fnnshme or storm Lit or tarnished ihe sky, One psth their twin spirits Took ever and aye. So compact their bond, So adhesive their ties. That the two seemed b»it one, To men's dull mortal eyes. As the ivy clings close, Side by side witb decay: As the phBde follows light Through a long summer's day ; As the hours mingle in, With Ihe flow of the years; As in sorrow ufid grief. Blind our sighs and our tears, Thus blent their existence. Thus hound were the twain— Alas! all nninutual, Abhorred was the chain! Do yon ask me tr» name Th s mysterious pmr i The first wub my kinsman, His comrade was Care I [From the New York Day Book."] Self-Government—Sovereignty and Allegiance. * * * * * * The hereditary consolidationists, for sixty years deprived by the people of any solid power in the councils ofthe Union, with the hope that success might attend a change of front, and finding that the tenets ofthe fanaticism />f the day did not conflict with, and could easily be incorporated into tho political doctrines they inherited, very readily fell into the arrangement of factions that promised them the exercise of un controllable power, and which now constitutes the republican party. The full political theory ofthe party thus constituted, was notlaid before the people when soliciting their support. It only proposed, through Federal authority, to prohibit slavery extension into the territory ofthe Union, and to abolish it in the District of Columbia, and in the forts, arsenals and navy yards of the Union, wherever situated. It assumed the constitutional right to do this. The reverse was maintained by both branches ofthe party on the side of self-government and State rights; but owing to its unfortunate division, and to CD i the zealous preaching of political persons, a sufficient number of unthinking and unsuspecting people were seduced into tho ranks of its opponents to give them a preponderance in every N orth- ern State, save that of New Jersey. The Southern States, accepting this result as a declaration that the Constitute n could no longer preserve to them their just rights—that the Northern States had determined to make war on their institution, to refuse them equality in the Union, and, branding them as a sens i-barbarous people, prevent the Constitution to their oppression—determined for themselves, in the exercise of their sovereignty, each one for itself, in the same manner as they had been conferred, (through a convention of the the people, elected for the sole purpose of representing thoir sovereignty on that question,) and thus withdraw from a Union that they felt no longer, sought to establish justice between the States, ensure domostic tranquility therein, promote the general welfare thereof, or secure the inestimable blessing ofthe liberty of self-government to them and their posterity. "War—bloody, fratricidal, relentless, destructive—has followed. In its progress the real principles of the party that so unhappily came into power in 1860, have, step by step, been developed The most vicious maxims of government that ever blackened the' pages of history have been unearthed and made the rule of conduct; and a tyranny ovei mind and person attempted to be established, that, to find its parallel, we must search the scanty records of the dark ages. The Constitution of our country which we had been taught to reverently look up to as our political guide, and as the bond that bound in ono Con federacy for the purposes it specified, upwards of thirty independent sovereignties, with the right of self-govern^ ment in each—We are now told ss nothing but "a dead sheep skin," and that that only is constitutional which a live President Cabinet and Congress may choose to order and enact, and that he who imprudently invokes its power and protection for the people, in the American Congress, is a traitor, and ought to meet the doom of one. The President, who is peculiarly sworn to preserve and protect the Fe. deral Constitutioh,unblushing and boldly, before the people of all the States, declares thai he will disregard some of its provisions, under the plea that he does so to save others—in plain language, trample upon such of them as stand between him and despotic power. In the face ofthe Constitution, which prohibits the Federal authority from meddling with the freedom ofthe press, he suppresses newspapers. . In the face of the Constitution which expressly prohibits him, he arrests and imprisons free citizens, without warrant and without information made on oath. In the face ofthe Constitutirn, which no where gives him the power, and limits in Congress to times of invasion and insurrection, he has suspended the writ of habeas corpus, where there was no disturbance, and refused to those thus summarily arrested by his military power, any opportunity to learn the cause of their incarceration. In the face.of tho Constitution, he interrupts the session of the Legislature of a sovereign State, by arresting the members and holding them in close imprisonment hundreds of miles distant from their own State, never offering them a trial or letting them know for what they w ere arrested, and only liberating them at the expiration of the term for which they have been elected. In the face' ofthe Constitution, in repeated cases, the judge on tbe bench has been arrested by a file of soldiers, while in the midst of his official duties, and confined in military prison distant from his State; thus suspending the administration of justice in a sovereign State; lest such acts would be judicially •pronounced unconstitutional. In the face of tho Constitution, the municipal officers of two great cities, the Maj'ors, Councils, &c, are airested and immured in distant prisons, and for a time militar}? governments established by the President in their places. In the face ofthe Constituion, which prohibits him, through his miliiary he has dispersed peaceable assemblages of the people, that had only met for the purpose selecting candidates for the pending of State election. In the face of the Constitution, which forbids it, money has been taken from the Federal treasury without appropriation, and officers appointed and clothed with power without being authorized by law. In the face ofthe Constitution, which expressly forbids it, the territory of a sovereign State has been divided without its consent having been ■ given or solicited. In the fi ce ofthe Constitution,which., after full debate in the Convention that revised or framed it, recalled the power to emit bills of credit from the Federal authority, such bills have- been issued, and the country flooded with an irredeemable paper currency. In the face ofthe t onstitution, which delegates no such power, these bills of credit are, by the act of Congress, made a legal tender in the pecuniary transactions of private life. In the face ofthe Constitute n, which grants no such power, taxes are levied on State corporations, not for tho purpose of revenue, but for the avowed object of destroying them, and thus drive out of circulation a currency authorized by the States and familiar to the people to make room for that which it is deter, mined unconstitutionally to force upon them. In the face of the Constitution, by proclamation, to be enforced aud supported by the armies of tke Union, the t resident undertakes to change the domestic regulations of States that he claims to be still in the Uuion. In the face of the Constitution, which grants to the Federal a&ent no such power, it is proposed to tax one.portion of the people to make good to another any loss they may sustain in. relinquishing their rights to the labor of a third. But why extend the list of usurpa* tions and acts of tyranny? Has not enough been named to show that the Constitution, in the estimation af the party in power, is what the Kev. Buffoon of Plymouth Church designated it to be—"a dead sheep skin," without virtue or pow.er to control or keep within bounds the Administration to whom the people of the States have so unhappily* entrusted the management of their confederate interest? When Patrik Henry, and others, in the convention of Virginia, with prophetic language pointed out the danger to liberty that he imagined to lurk in its provisions—'that the effort would be made to construe it in favor of consolidation and despotism— the friends of libeity who favored its adoption felt that it would be such a glaring usurpation of undelegated pewer that they could not conceive the posi- bi'ity of its occurrence, and were indignant that it should be suggested. Both parties there were friends of liberty and Union, but one argued that the proposed plan endangered the righte of self-government in the States, and would ultimately result in the despotism of consolidation or the weakness of disunion; while the other maintained that its adoption would protect the States in their sovereignty and strengthen tha Union between them. The one side, for the purpose of defeating, or at least securing, further guarantees against encroachments by the Federal agent on the liberties of the people and the sovereignty ofthe States, represented that th« time would come when it would attack the liberty of print and speech, when the citizens of one State would be dragged by despotic power to another for imprisonment and trial, when the control ofthe militia would be UBed,not to protet, but to crush the States, when in would be assumed that the States held no rights but what was subservient tothe Federal authority, when the judiciary, would claim that it had power to bring sovereign States before its bar to answer a citizen of another or a foreign State. The friends of adoption combatted these ideas as chimerical, they showed that it would lack the first great element of consolidation, not being established by a majority of the people as a whole, but by the sovereignty of each State, each State for itself determining whether it would hold itself aloof o.i unite with thd others—they showed that it would not attack the liberty of print and speech, because the proposed plan was silent on the subject, and hence the power was not delegated —they showed that provision was made for the trial of all crimes by 'the jury in the State where they were al eged to have been commited—they showed, if a President was crazy enough to interfere with the courts or Legislature of a State, "the people would assemble in thousands and drive thirty times" the military force he might seek to use for that purpose—they showed that they were not establishing a government over the States, but an agent of the States to do c rtain duties which could be thus performed more conveniently, more cheaply and more energetically—they showed that the clause giving tho Federal judiciary jurisdiction between a State and citizen of another State, only enabled a State to become a plaintiff— they showed, if not withstanding all this, if the delegated authority they were granting to secure their own happiness should be perverted and abused, they still retained the power to reassemble in convention and wholly recall their delegated powers; in the lan- fruase of Mr. Madison, "if we be dissat- isfied with the t.ational government, if we should choose to renounce it, this is an aditional safeguard to our defence." Who cannot see that the Constitution under the administration of President Lincoln, has become precisely what its opponents predicted it will become—and that the guards and checks sought to be secured by the amendments have proved but as gossamer threads in the in the path of the tiger, in obstructing the rapid and steady strides of despotio power.
