11LOOMSUIIU1, FRIDAY, 1'EIl. 1, 1SOJ.
ONE OP THE RESULTS OP
During tho days of Frank Shuttle, mid
even up to so Into a data ns 1SC0, there
was about tho LcgUlattiro mid public
oftlces mill buildings it rcnl effort to econ
omist) to eavo money front beliij need
lessly expended. Tho smallest nppro
prhttion or expenditure of money wits
subjected to a rigid scrutiny. Wo refer
now to the Legislature, and tho public
buildings. That was tho rule, excep
tions there may havo been.
For the last few years all this is chang
ed, tho rule now is to spend ns much as
possible, and apparently thoro is no
check. Sinco George Darsio left tho
Senate, no ono cares enough nbout
such matters to pay it any attention.
Perhaps, indeed, no ono hat experience
enough to do it, even if so disposed.
Itepalrs to tho building havo always
been done by tho Superintendent alone,
usually under the direction of tho Heads
of Department, and with nn expendi
ture of from throe to eight thousand dol
lars, but in 1805 tho Clerk of tho two
Houses managed to get general authori
ty to make repairs without limit. Tho
following is tho result of this kind of
Legislature, for 1SGC see Auditor ueiv
William J. Bteos, Superintendent, for

of tho Clerks of tho two Houses 13,755 G3

We notico that there is a proposition
before tho Legislature to substitute some
other modo of taxation in lieu of the
three mill tax on porsoual property now
imposed by tho State. Tho better way
would be to repeal the tax altogether,
tho money raised by it, about tlireo nun
dred thousand dollars, is wholly un
necessary. Last year there was on an
average over two million seven hun
dred thousand dollars of tho State mon
ey on deposit in some favorlto bank,
out of which somebody mado themselves
rich. Even witlt tho present bad man
agemeut and shameful squandering of
money about tho Legislature, this tax
is not required. Wo hope tho Demo
cratic members will urge tho uncondi'
tional repeal of tho three mill tax on
Dorsonal property. Tne Radicals think
of nothing but btich legislation as look
to their own party projects, and the
rights and interests of tho people are
This tax would havo been repealed
years ago had tho Democratic party re
ruained in power, they did, in fact, take
off a half mill, but it was restored by
tho Radicals in 1S01.

NEWSPAPER CHANGES AND IM

changes mid enlargements among our
Democratic exchanges within the pres

Tho Patriot and Union, tho central
organ ol Democracy of tho State, lias
been enlarged and changed front mi
evening to a morning paper. Tho Pa
triot is a hold and rtblu advocate of tho

State may extend to it tho generous sup

Tho Carlislo Volunteer has been en
larged and Improved. It is one of the
best weekly papers in Pennsylvania,

ton and Kennedy tho success they bo
The Sunbury Democrat has changed
hands. Truman If. Purdy, Esq., an
ablogentleman, well known throughout
tho State, retires from tho editorial
chair which lie basso ably filled. Messrs.
Eicholtz and Anton aro now publish
ers of tho Democrat. Mr. Eicholta is
from Lancaster. Tho democracy of old
Northumberland will no doubt give
them a substantial support.
Tho Clinton Dcinocrulhns also chang
cd hands. J. W. and W. P. Furoy havo
taken chargo of It. It lias been very
ably conducted heretofore, mid those
who succeed Mr. Orth will find it dim
cult to excel lilm. Wo aro assured, how
ever, that they arc men of the right
kind. Success to them.
The Columbian, a paper started by tho
Johnson men of Columbia County, has
changed hands. John O. Ireeze, Esq.,
is now editor, and he intends to make It
a consistent Democratic paper. It i

One of the boldest highway robberies
on record in this vicinity was commit
ted Wednesday evening (Jan. 0th), on
tho Wilkes-Barro bridge, within fifty
rods of tho court house. Hope's Ex
press runs a wagon across tho mile fiat
from Kingston to Wilkes-Barro, on tho
arrival at Kingston of the train which
leaves this city at 4:00 in tho afternoon.
Mr. Smith, thoScranton agent, forward
ed by that train, on Wednesday, to ono
of tho Wilkes-Barro banks, a packago
containing $15,000 in U. S. bonds. Other
jiionoy packages were forwarded by the
Lackawanna & Bloomsburg IX. R. sta
tlon agents hero nnd at other points, and
when the canvass money bag was put
aboard tho wagon at Kingston, to go to
Wilkes-Barre, its contents were precise
ly as here stated :
Ono plottage of bonds 815,iO CO

One valuable package (not money) "0 00
Tour packages, value not known
The wagon started in charge of two
men and reached the bridge at about 7
o'clock. When about one-fourth of tho
way throut'h the bridge, two men seized
tho horses by the heads, while four
others, pistol in hand, clambered on
tho wagon, and demanded that the E.v
pressmen surrender the money and val
tiables in their charge on pain of being
shot. Ono man attempted resistance,
and was severely choked. The other
remained quiet, and was not harmed
The thieves were all entire strangers to
tho Express drivers, and it was dark on
the bridge, and the whole affair was over
in a few seconds, it is doubtful wheth
er the Expres-nnen could Identify either
of tho six highwaymen. Some ono of
tho four seized the canvass bag contain
lug tho money packages, and without
tryingtosocurp.any other plunder made
off. The Kxprcssmcn mado nil haste in
tho opposite direction, and reported to
tho agent not more than five or ten min
utcs after tho robbery. The agent im
mediately employed tho entire polico of
tho town, and commenced pursuit
was found that tho footpads had turned
off into tho fields shortly after leavin
tho bridge, and they were tracked to
point whero they had emptied the bai
and left it behind them. They coul
not bo traced beyond this spot. Xcran
Sinco tho above Is in type, wo hav
received tho Luzerne Union, which say
that tho detectives aro still engaged In
"working up" the robbery of the Ex
press wagon mentioned last week. Twi
parties from Wilkes-Barreand one from
Kingston havo been lodged Injalldur
lug tho last week, nnd It Is said that tho
detectives know tho whole party, mi
expect to capture them. Tho nnrtlc
arrested iiad a hearing last Saturday
upon a writ of habeas corpus and wero
remanded to Jail. Very llttlo is know
of tho plans of tho detectives, or tli
information in their possession, nnd ti
eager public had better await tho result
of their efforts without giving ear

COLUMBIAN, BLOOMSBURG, COLUMBIA COUNTY,
THE IMPENDING COUP D'ETAT
When constitutional government is
In peril there is nlwnys warning of tho
mpeudlng danger. A coup d'etat is
looked for, mid men forewarned feel yet
ns If they wero not forearmed. Tho
blow Is struck not by an open enemy;
comes front a quarter in which power
has been constitutionally placed for tho
preservation of tho very Government,
10 destruction of which is compassed,
ho safeguards of constitutional liberty
are swept away In tho pretended inter
ests of tho nation, but really because
they stand hi tho way of the man or
arty in power. They fear that, their
power mid constitutional government
cannot exist together, and therefore
icy destroy constitutional government.
s such a trifle to stand In the way of
their great purpo-es? This, as we all
remember, was tho way in which Louis
Napoleon, President of tho French Re-
ubllc, usurped power mid made him
self Emperor. Ho was made President
because he had persuaded a majority of
the French people that ho of all men
was best fitted to preserve, protect nnd
defend tho Constitutional Government
of tho French Republic. Ho mndo
lmself tho autocrat of France, and de
stroyed its Constitutional Government
by sweeping a co-ordinato brancli of
that Government out of his path, in tho
coup d'etat of the 2d of December. For
this kind of political usurpation wo
ivc to use a I'rcncli name. Our lan
guage, framed by n people in who'-o
cradle were the seeds of popular liberty
and which advanced steadily to con
stitutional government from tho time it
eft tho Scandinavian forests, happily
'urnlshes tw with no word.or phrase ex
pressive of Just tills action.
And yet it would seem that wo have
ecently developed a pressing need for
soniosuch plirasu in our mother tongue;
for few of us aro blind enough not to
ec that there is now impending a coup
d'etat at Washington. It hangs above
our heads at this very moment, and if
wo do not lay aside all party hopes mid
fears, or in fact ail other considerations,
it will fall upon us ns wo aro gazing up
on it with stupid and inactive apprc-
icnsion. The power by which the exis
tence of constitutional government is
mperiled jn this country has control of
one branch only of our Government. It
holds that power as a representative of
only a majority of only a part of a na
tion. A largo minority of the constitu
ents of the very members who at pres
ent control tho Legislative branch of
our Government are opposed to their
action, mid yet must submit, nnd ought
tojsuhmlt to that action, so long as it is
constitutional. Now, it is tho one car
dinal principle of constitutional gov
ernment that within tho provisions of
tho Constitution tlierightsof minorities
as well as those of nitjoritlcs shall be
afe. It is chiefly for tho protection of
minorities that constitutional' govern
ment is established that tho party
which for tho time being, lias control of
theexectitlveand the legislative branch
es of Government may not use its pow
er exclusively in its own interests, nnd
n tyrannical disregard of tho rights of
the minority. Therefore it is that u
Constitution declares what the execu
tivo and what tne legislative- power
may do, and either declares also that
they shall not do certain other things,
or that they shall do only that for which
they receive authority through the
Constitution. If this restraint is bro-
en through, cither by the executive or
tho legislative power, constitutional
government is at an end. The imme
diate object in view may bo good, but
constitutional liberty Is nqno the less
destroyed, and the course over its ruins
Is made easy for every chief oxecutivo
or any legislative majority thereafter.
No intelligent and moderately well in
formed citizen of this Republic needs
to be told that Congress is not supreme,
that Congress has no powers hut tho-o
derived from the Constitution, that it is
tho creature not of tho people directly,
but of tho people through tho Constitu
tion, and that it may transcend its jut
powers as easily as the President can
transcend his. From Its nature, its or
ganization and its functions, it is tho
most powerful branch of tho Govern
ment, and is thereforo tho ono to bo
most icared; and most jealously watched
and rcstalncd. Upon it there aro only
two checks ; tho President's veto, which
Congress itself can put aside by a two-
thirds vote, and tho Supreme Court,
which has no control over tho wisdom
or patriotism of its acts, but only over
their- legality. Imperfect ns thcio
checks are, becauso they are Of human
contrivance, they have thus far been
sufficient, and they would always prove
sufficient, for tho security of constitu
tional government. Without them,
constitutional liberty would not exNt
for a year ; but each session of Congress
we should be at tho mercy of an Irre
pressible majority, which, if neces-ary
to its purposes; could declare Massachu
setts or Ohio, or both, and New York
besides, out of tho Union, which could
impeach tho President nt will and sus
pend him from his olllco until ho was
declared cither Innocent or guilty, It
would mako no matter; nnd which
could bid tho Supremo Court attend to
its own business, and not concern Itself
with tho legality of any act done by tho
majority. I said this might bo; but it
is, except for tho mere formality of a
passage by the majority who voted by
roll-call, and pas between tellers nfter
their leaders llko sheep between gate
posts. The purpose of tho majority or
present Imperfect Congress, as wo all
see, Is to remove tho President, and not
only the President but tho Supremo
Court out of Its way. Wo sco this, nnd
wo look on, in apathy, and go about our
money-making, stupidly trusting that
no iiarm will come of it, and yet what
Is doing is that Constitutional Govern
ment is destroyed before our eyes. A
bill was brought In by Mr. Williams, of
Pennsylvania, which absolutely, Is en
titled u bill to "define thu powers of tho
biipremo Court" oftliotiupremoCourtl
tvliowi powers nro Jrfinvl by tho Con
stltutlon, mid tho thief object of ichosc
creation teas to define the.poieer of Coif
(tress. A more barefaced attempt nt
usurpation was never seen; n inoro fa
tal blow to constitutional government
was never dealt, Yet what may wo
not expect when Mr. Wilson reports a
bill which declares valid and conclusive
certain proclamations and consequent
nets which tho Supreme Court can only
declare valid? and when Mr. Boutwcll
does not hesitate- todeclare, "with strong
emphasis," that tho Supremo Court ex
ists but by the breath of Congress the
Supremo Court, created by tho creator
of Congress, to Interpret lis laws anil bo
n check upon its action 1 Congress lias
no more right to define tho action of tho
Supremo Court than to define Its own
powers or those of the President. The
peoplohaveal ready donoall this through
tho Constitution; tho people- may
elinnco thtlr definition through tho
Constitution. When tho powors cither
of Congress, tho President or tho Su
premo Court are abridged or enlarged
in any other way, constitutional gov
ernment Is nt an end, and constitutional
liberty lias for tho time, perhaps for ev
er, been destroyed. Yet this proposi
tion to define tho powers or tlio Supremo
Court and to mako a full "bench and
unanimity necessary to any decision
upon tho constitutionality of the pro
ceedings of tho majority in Congies,
was not rebuked or laughed down, but
actually referred to the Judiciary Com
mittee by a vole of 107 to 35. Did it oc
cur to these legislators that tho time
may not bo far distant when one Judge,
perhaps a Taney, may by ids absence
delay, or by his obitinanca defeat a
judgment upon tho constitutionality Of
an act of Congress, which judgment
may bo in their opinion of the highest
importance-? Or do they mean to say
that although a full bench and unani
mity are necessary to tho validity of
proceedings in tho Supremo Court, the
acts of a mere majority of Congress
inut bo just, valid, 'constitutional?
These things nro dono before us; tho
doom of our Government is on tho brink
of execution; mid yet we aro quiet!
Will nothing rouse us . Aro we as
sluggish of apprehension now, on the
one hand, n3 we wero before tho rebel
lion, on the other? Our Government
is in peril now, as it was then ; not of
disintegration, but of usurpation tho
Usurpation of absolute power by the
temporary representatives of a majority
of tho people of a part of the country.

Tho President to-day sent to tho Sen-

sweeping veto, although tho message
had not been read up to this hour of

The debato was animated, and on tho

Randall, of Pennsylvania, made brief
but forcible and pointed speeches. Loan
desired tho subject referred to a special
committee. Ho was dissatisfied with tho
Committee- on the Judiciary. The nior-
Ing hour expired befuro a voto was
reached, and tho matter went over to
future day. According to tho re
marks of Mr. Wilson of Iowa, tho Ju
diciary Commltteo have taken no act
on tho impeachment question of any
nportaiico whatever. Mr. W. Is the
hali'mnn of the committee, and ought
to know. Nevertheless, it is undoubt-
lly truo that they nro searching for
witnesses nnd endeavoring to obtain
documentary evidenco against the
President. That they have not been
successful in either, lias not been on ac
count of their want of zeal iu the mat
