Tho Rroat lovor that gives jtowcr to
political parties U Its newspaper pros?.
In this twpect wo nro forced to tho ml
mission that tho Republicans lmvo n
decided ndvantrtgo especially In the
city press. Thus, In both Now York
and Philadelphia tho IVjpubllcmi press
Is decidedly superior In ability, and In
each city that party lias n half a dozen
papers each of which lias n larger circu
lation than tho Democratic papers of
thu satno places. How stands this mat
ter at present ?
In tho capital of tho nation, tho Dem
ocratic orjjan, until recently, was of no
account whatever, mid now li Inferior
to tho n.idlcal organs In Washington In
circulation and not superior Inability.
As to the latter, It falls far below tho
old llloM and Union of palmier days,
Nor Is lint all times faithful to tho truo
principles of tho party.
In Now York city, a half a dozen
Republican dallies arc greatly superior
Inability to tho Democratic press nnd
In circulation each exceed It largely,
Tho World, tho principal Democratic
organ, Is totally unreliable as to prlncl
plo nnd changes from ono thing to
another with such facility that It is
often tlilllctilt to rrcognlza its party
In Philadelphia tho fact as to circula
tion is about tho samo as in New York.
Tho Age-, whilo it is a most respectable
sheet and shows ability of n certain pat
tern, is rather a paper for tho fastidious
gentleman's parlor than for tho musses.
Itis careful, prudent, tame, eminently
conservative and amiable. Its chief
editor is a (Inn and manly opponent of
It.iulcalUm, a gentleman of tho highest
respectability and of great worth, but
wo iiiepect (at least) was never cducat
cd i'j or deeply Imbued with tho rugged
Dnnocratic principles of .Iefi'eiison
anu Jackson. His object bccibs to bo
ratm r to defeat tho Radicals than to
e&itmsh Democratic ideas, and there
fore n.'-on favors or falls to opposo pur
port j thaturo notjustiflod by any prill
cip.cof JctTersonlan Democracy. But,
whatever tho merits of tho Age, it is
qulto plain that if tho Democracy had
an organ In Philadelphia that was tho
equal In ability and vigor of tho Now
York Tribune, Radicalism would not
survlvo a can.paign In this State and
would bo utterly driven from tho field
in u brief time, in Pennsylvania at nil
In our Stato Capital wo nro in no bet
ter plight. Tho only Democratic paper
there tho Patriot wears tho appear
anceof a private enterpriso rather than
apartyorgan,is thoezponant oi cliques,
lias interests to subserve, is not faithful
to principle It lost tho confidence of
the party when It Justified tho attempt
ed plunder of tho Stato sinking fund,
and cither supports or fails to denounce
tho raids of tho political branch of the
Pennsylvania Railroad upon tho Lcgls-
lature, upon tho Treasury, upon tho
party, and tipon tho people As a per
sonal organ serving Its own Interests
and promoting tho wclfaro of Its favor
ites, it could not enjoy material Influ
enco however well it might bo edited,
and it still further weakened its posi
tion by supporting tho Tammany "new
departure" schemo and by denouncing
thoso Democrats who refused to yield
prlnciplo at tho dictation of rogues nnd
fools. It exhibits nono of tho power of
former Democratic organs nt Harris
burg. Tho country press, as a general thing,
is conducted with ability nnd energy.
But its editors have not the advantage
of access to documents, of conversation
with tho lending distinguished nnd nblo
men participating directly In tho affairs
of largo business nnd government, of
correspondents nt tho scats of govern
ment and trade, where tho leading men
of all localities and of tho Stato and
nation frequently visit, of tho advan
tages of tho telegraph and other sources
of news and information. Tho New
York Tribune could not bo edited with
Its ability in Sunbury or Wililamsport,
or other country place, oven by tho
samo editors. Facilities and pecuniary
power would bo wanting. Tho country
press must necessarily look to tho city
press for much of their information and
for thorough and detailed discussion of
pirty measures and action.
A great need of tho Democratic party,
therefore, is nblo and efficient as well as
thorough exponents of Its principles at

THE COLUMBIAN AND DEMOCRAT,
To Fiiancis Joitu in, Secretary of the Conmon-
Hut: In a loiter of yours recently pub
lished you cnumcrato tho sovoral sub
jects which will bo proper for considera
tion In tho approaching Constitutional
Coventlon of this State, nud among
others "Minority Representation" ns
ono. This term "Minority Represen
tation " Is inaccurato and misleading ns
applied to tho sovoral plans of electoral
reform which havo boon proposed In
tills country and partially applied by
statutory enactments In this and in
other States and notably by Constitu
tional nmendmcnt In tho State of Illi
nois. No ono proposes tho representation
of minorities by tho llmltod.cumulatlvc,
or frco vote, or by list or preferential
voting, ns thososovcr.il plans havo been
explained, advocated nnd partially ap
plied In Kuropo and In tho United
Stales. They aio nil plans for tho rep
resentation of successive majorities lu
plural elections and all of them nro In
tended to npply tho majority prlnciplo
of government moro completely and
Justly than ever before. Iiot us not bo
misled by words llly-undcrstood, or
perverted from their truo signification
nor by reasoning which whllo peril
nent to tho election of a slnglo person
may bo qulto Inapplicable to tho clec
lion of eovcral or many.
It is said, and tho remark Is qulto
truo In n general sense, that ours Is a
system of self-government, but no plan
ofropresenlntlon ever devised can make
It such completely and beyond tho possl
blllty of u disfranchisement of some
momberj of the electoral population,
Wo must content ourselves with an ap
proach to u standard of absolute per
fection, without Indulging hopes of
over reaching It by tho utmost exertion
of our powers. But wo must approach
it as nearly ns wo cm, or wo will bo
fulto to tho principles wo profess and
subject oursilves to just reproach from
tho friends of frei government In nil
lands. Our country Is now nnd our ex
periment and trial of froo Institutions Is
being made not only upon n grand scalo
but under conditions moro favornblo
for success than over beforo existed in
tho whole history of tho human race.
Tho moro completo representation of
tho pcoplo In government Is, simply
stated, the object of thoso who advocate
electoral reform upon cither of tho
plans beforo mentioned ; but it is an
cntiro mistake to nssumo that they In
tend to subordinate tho greater to tho
loss In any of tho arrangements they
propose, or to subvert or impair any
prlnciplo beretoforo accepted ns sound
and Just In republican government. On
tho contrary, they adhere to tho prlnel
plo of irmjorltygovcrninent with ad
mirable fidelity and glvo to It new,
useful nnd extended operation nnd ef
fect. They represent moro persons
dlsfrancbiso fewer ones nnd cut off
tho main source of olcctoral corruption,
by carrying tho majority prlnciplo fur
ther than it over has been nnd placing
a power for Its effectual enforcement in
tho bands of tho pcoplo themselves.
Tho forco of thoso general romarks
will bo best exhibited by an illustration
of tho prlnciplo of extended represen
tation to which they refer, and for such
Illustration I will tako tli3 caso of
Bloomsburg, my own town, where
four elections havo been held under tho
plan of tho freo vote. Tho town con
tains, say, 012 voters, 312 ,ol whom aro
Democrats and 300 Republicans. (Thess
aro not fir from tho exact numbers as
shown at recent elections.) '
A President of tho town Council is to
bo elected annually who is tho principal
cxecutlvo officer of thn town as well as
President of tho Council. If tho 312
Democratic voters unlto in support of a
candldato ho will bo elected, and prop,
erly elected, upon tho sound prlnciplo
that a greater nunibcrshnll bo preferred
to a less In tho assignment of represen
tation. Ten voters in this caso turn tho
scale, but tho ro-sult is perfectly Just.
Thero Is but ono majority to bo consid
ered and that lu favor of tho successful
Next, two Assessors of taxes nro to
bo elected annually and hero tho froo
voto comes luto play nnd secures their
division between parties. Each voter
Is permitted to glvo ono voto to each of
two candidates, or two votes to ono.
Each party, of course, will run but ono
candldato becauso they can elect no
moro and tho second majority in tho
town Is represented as woll as tho first.
Tho figures nro as follows : Divide C12,
(the whole voto) by 2, (tho number of
assessors,) and wo obtain a ratio, or
number of voters for an assessor, of 300.
Givo tho first assessor to tho first ma
jority of 312 Democrats and deduct tho
ratio ; wo lmvo then left, unrepresented,
but 0 Democrats to 300 Rcpublleans.ar.d
tho frco voto carrlos tho socond assessor
to this second, or Ropublicin mnjoilty.
How much better this is tlinn giving
both tho assessors to tho first majority I
Hero but (l voters nro unropresontod In
stead of 300. And In practical govern.
ment a clear advantago Is gained ; for
tho posslblo splto, partiality or Incom
petency of ono assessor Is checked or
corrected by tho other, nnd tho chances
of fair play In tho valuations of proper
ty In tho town, nro increased.
A blmllar und salutary division of
officers takes place annually in tho
choice of two school directors and two
constables, und trlcmilnlly In tho cholco
of two assistant nssossors.
But In tho election of threo porsons
tho Improvement Introduced by tho
now plan Is still moro ovldent than In
tho caso of two. Tho numbers will run s
Ratio, 201: first Dem. majority 312:
second Rop. maj. 300 ; third Dem, maj,
108, and tho general result will Htand 2
to 1 In favor of tho party having tho
preponderance upon tho total vote. The
disfranchisement of Republican votors
will bo reduced from 300 to 80, and this
by simply permitting each voter to cast
nis tlireo vote,, for ono, two or three
candidates ns ho shall think fit. Iu
liloomsburc: throo town Auditors aro
elected together overy third year.
ittKo next tlio caso of the annual elec
tion of six Coundlmon. Tho ratio for
a Councilman will bo 102 und tho ilvo
successlvo majorities after tlio first will
all bo represented by tho freo vote.
Although no calculation of them will
bo mado at tho election such will botho
Inovltnblo rosultj for as each voter may
bestow his six votes upon any number
of candidates I033 than six, each party
Will run but three, all of whom will bo
elocted and but six voter in tho whole
population will bo unrepresented In
stead of 300. Hero wo havo n very
nearly complete representation of all
the voters of tho town by following tho
majority prlnclpjo at each successlvo
stage of tho distribution,
Tho cxcluslvo representation of first
majorities nt plural elections Is a stupid
misapplication of a Just principle n
crude, unjust and pernicious rulo, tho
Inovltnblo effect of which, If continued,
will bo the destruction of republican
government. For It produces violent
struggles between parties nnd candi
dates for n preponderance of voto,
with constantly Increasing corruption
nt elections and demoralization of tho
people Theso ovlls cannot bo cured
or corrected by moro preachment whllo
their causa Is left In full operation.
Wo must tako away or groatly reduco
tho motive for corrupting voters In order
to Introduco reform wlilchshnll bo effec
tual and lasting, nnd this will bo accom
plished whon wo provldo that all Inter
ests In political society, of any consid
erable uiagnttudo, may represent them
selves In government by their own
votes and In proportion to their num
bers, without resort to corruption or
other means of tinduo lnllucncc.

Nov. 30, 187 1.
In tho New York Constitutional Con
vention held at Albany, 1807-8, tho Sec
retary read (Aug. 8, 1807) tho following
section proposed ns part of a revised
Si:o. 1. Tho Stale shall bo divided In
to thirty-two Senate districts, each of
which shall chooso ono Senator, nnd the
term of olllco shall bo four years." The
section also deflnos tho geographical
limits of tho several districts.
Hon. Iloraco Greeley, Delegato from
Wustthcster county, thereupon moved
tho following siitislltuli', which with
Mr. Greeley's remarks thereon, is given
ns follows In tho official report of the
ProieeJInga and Debates, Vol. I, page
Mr. Gukki.ey, I move us a substl
tuto tho first section of my nmendmcnt,
to bo found in document 19. Tho Sec-
rolury proceeded to read tho substlt uto
offered by Mr. Greeley, as follows :
Snc. 2. Tho legislature for 1803 shall
dis-ido tho Stato into fifteen Scnato Dis
tricts, whereof each shall contain as
nearly as may be, with duo regard to
tho Integrity of counties, nu ciiun 1 num
ber of legal voters, and whereof each
district shall la entitled to elect thrco
Senators. Eich voter may, nt his dis
cretion, repeat twice or thrlco on his
ballot for Senator tho nnmo of a candi
date, provided, that nil namosborno
thereon, including repetitions, shall no t
exceed thrco; and each ballot shall bo
counted two or threo votes, as tho case
may be, for any candldato whoso mitno
may bo thus repeated. Tho Senators
thus chosen shall hold their offco for
years j and any vacancy meantime
occurring shall bo filled by election as
heretofore. On tho expiration of tho
terms of Sonators, their places shall bo
filled as above."
I dC3lro simply to correct ono or two
misapprehensions which tho debato has
shoiyn to exist. In this amendmont, it
Is proposed to havo fiftoon Sanato Dis
tricts, each containing r."i,000 doctors.
Now, if iu any district tho minority
parly, or any minority shall number so
many as 1 1,000 electors over ono quar
tor of tho whole number that mlnorl ty
can surely elect ono Senator by nomi
nating a slnglo candldato and printing
his nnmotbrlco on each ballot, which
would glvo the candldato 12.000 votes
and It is not posslblo that tho larger
party, having but -11,000 votes In all,
can by permutation or management
proveut tho minority from choos
ing one Senator. Now, this Stato
cannot bo so divided that thcro will bo
moro than ono district iu which the
minority will not bo equal to l!i,000 out
of tho 53,000 voters. Fairly divided,
thero will not bo ono slnglo district In
which tho minority cannot elect ono
Senator. Again, a gentleman on tho
floor said that no party would confess
Itself In the minority. No party need
do so j where tho disparity is notorious,
palpablo, it will do so; but in every
other district each party will nomlnnto
two candidates, nnd try to elect both :
nnd tho party which Is tho stronger
will elect tlio two, and tho weaker party
wilt elect one. It Is just nnd good for
porsons outsldo of any party. Hero nro
Independent votors choosing to elect
some ablo and eloquent man, who
stands outsldo of any party organiza
tion. If they exceed ono-quarter of
tho voters of tho district, thoy can elect
that man by cumulating his name or
their b dints. This Is n plan lo allow a
minority U It-tvo n ri'iiriiiilntlvo to
allow iho wh'i'.M people to lio represent
ed. Yuu now havo lOD.OOJ t-Kctors out
of 700,000 repio-mtivl l-i tin. Leg Ma
ture. I propose that thu wholo 700,000
shall bo represented, tho minority as
well as tho majority, I hopo tho Con
vention will allow tlio ayes and noes
to bo taken on this proposition.

Secretary callod tho roll on the amend
ment of Mr. Qreeley, and It w.3 lost.
We havo olten Invited tho Faculty to

It may do doubted whether recont bltos
do not often prompt tho patient to simu

not tho seat of tho dlseaso, in most cases.
In Now York, a caso of hydrophobia
was lately reported as consequent on a

caso has accurred of which tho Courier

was bltton by a squirrel. On the noxt day
she displayed overy symptom of hydro-
pnooia in us most violent form. Tho
Inability to swallow liquids, tho parox
ysmsof fury wero all present. Happily,
howover, on tho third day all tho symp
toms yielded to medical treatment, and
tho lady recovered. This easels remark
ablo: first, becauso thero is no dog in It;
oecuuu, uut-uusu mo Bympioms iolloweu
tho bito Immediately; and third, bo-
causo tho patient promptly found relief,
in a treatment that is not stated with
sufficient particularity to bo worth re

wholo subject, Is worthy of tho attention
of mou of sclenco, who ought to rescue

kulfo of tho guillotine
, In England, too, thero was n tlmo
once.whcn personal liberty bad no other
security than tho caprico of nn officer of
thocrown. But nt last a means ofdo-
llvcrnnco from uulust restraint and tin
warrantable imprisonment camo at nn
enrlierday and Inn mlldor and moro
enduring form than In Franco.
Moro than seven centuries ago, tho
13aroii3 of l-.ngland nsscmblcd on tho
green sward of Runnymcdo, on tho
batiks ortho Thames, with drawnswords
In their hands, compelled their treach
erous King John to sign magna ciarta,
which contained theso words:
"No man siiAi.r, hi; taken or im
trisonkd nuT iivtiie lawful judo
MHN'T OP JUS PEERS, 01'. I!Y THE LAW
OP THE LAND."
11 was tins ciauso moro than any
other It contained, that gavo to magna
eharta that grand and high sounding
title The Palladium of English Liber
Centuries rolled by, and still at Intor
vals kings ami kingly officorj, over in
tent upon tho usurpation of power.
managed to evado tho ciauso, and to
imprison without trial and without law.
Magna Charta had declared tho princi
ple that personal liberty was beyond
tho caprico and mallco of tho executive.
but It had not provided a means for the
protectton of tho right.
It was not until nearly two hundred
years ago unlit tho year 1079 that a
sluttito was enacted which forever pine
cd tho liberty of tho person beyond tho
power of tho King. To that act was
glvon tho nnmoof HABEAS CORPUS.
Reader, it is to tho principles of this
act, re-enacted in nil thu States of tho
American Union, that you owe tho so
curity of your personal liberty against
nil wrongful restraint wluitover.
And what Is this Habeas Corpus
which is bo powerful to protect tho lib
erty of the citizens against nil wrongful
exercise of power V
Wo wllloxplaln by tin illustration:
Let us supposo that tin officer invades
your home, beizes you and hurries you
uwny to tho strong Jail in Penobcot
county. Ho delivers you over to the
jailor who thrusts you into a cell. You
protest against thu outrugo; but tho
officer is deaf to all your protests.
Friends pass along tho corridors of tho
prison nnd you appeal to them for help ;
but they cannot aid you. Whence is
relief to como V Through Habeas Corpus
and Habeas Corpus alone !
Youhavo n friend. It may bo your
who, blio knows tho wrong you nro
suffering. Sho goes to nny Judgo of tho
Supremo Court. Sho tells him that you
aro wrongfully restrained of your lib
erty. Sho demands of him n writ of
Habeas Corpus. Ilorannof, ho dare not
refuse It. Tho law compels him to grant
Now what Is tho writ of Habeas Cor
pus? It is a writ directed to tho Shor
iff commanding him to bring beforo tho
Judgo (n habeas corpus) your body.
This writ tho Sheriff must obey. If
prison walls and prison bars Btand bo
tween him and you, he must break them
down. Tlio command of tho writ must
bo executed, oven If tlio power of tho
Stato Is required to enforco It. You
must bo tnkon out of that cell nnd
brought beforo that Judge, to tho end
that nil tho world may know why you
havo been restrained of your liberty.
If, upon examination, tho Judgo finds
that you nro wrongfully, and not law
fully, restrained of your liberty, ho bids
you go frco.
Such Is tho great writ of personal lib
erty, Habeas Corpus. It penetrates
every room, overy den, ovory cavorn,
overy prison, os-ery coll, every dun
geon, everywhere, In fine, whero a citi
zen, old or young, may bo wrongfully
restrained of his freedom. Is it not a
glorious licrltngo ? Is It not worthy of
nil regard? Is not Its preservation
worthy of every effort nnd overy sacri
fice V Should not tho Constitution of
both tho Union nnd tho State guard and
protect It? It is the citizen's shield
against the usurpation of those whom we
are obliged to entrust with power.
How carefully our Constitutions havo
guarded It? Both tho Constitution of
tho United States und tho Constitution
of Mnlno says :
"Tho privilege of tho writ of habeas
corpus shall not be suspended, unless
when In cases of rebellion or Invasion
the public safety may rcqulro It."
In cases of rebellion and Invasion tho
writ may bosuspondod. But byehomt
Not by tho Prestdcnl or tlio Governor ;
for that would bo placing tho llbcrly of
tho citizens at tlio mercy of tho very
executive authority ngnlnst the wrong
ful excrclso of which It Is created ns a
protection ; but by Congress or the Leg
islature. 'They nro tho solo, Judges
whether tho public safety requires its
suspension, It Is n power that they
may exercise, but they cannot delegate
it. In that, tho Ku-Klux law delo?ntcs
to tho President not only tho power to
suspend habeas corpils, but to determ
ine tho necessity for It, It Is n plain nnd
palpablo violation of both tho spirit
and letter of tho Constitution, nnd un
authoritative, mill and void.
Well, right In tho faco and ryes of till
this history, nnd nil theso facts, Ulysses
S. Grant, Prcsldentof tho United States,
has dono what no king, what no queen,
what no regent of England, has dared
to do for two hundred years. In viola
tion of tho Constitution, and In viola
tion of ull law, ho has suspended the
writ of habeas corpus In nlno counties
of South Carolina, and, by onostrokoof
his pen, ho has deprived a population
larger than Inhabits nil that great part
of tho Stato of Malno which lies oast of
tho Penobscot river, of all tho guaran
ties and protection of law. Ho has
given over nearly two hundred thous
and people, men women and children,
to the unrestrained license of a brutal
soldiery, of thlovcs, of plunderers and
Alrcndy tho telegraph begins to tell
tho talo of Buffering, misery nud distress
that provnll throughout thoso nllllctrd
counties. Innocent men, by scores nnd
by hundreds, havo already been seized
and (lung Into prisons nnd dungeons
nnd compelled lo herd with loathsome
negroes lmprifoncd for murder, robbery
and theft. All business is suspended -,
crops nro left unharvested ; property is
given over to negro and carpetbag pil
lage, and citizens nro (leelng Into ad
joining States by thousands, to escape
tho walls of prisons from which there
Is no hopo of deliverance.
And when and where Is this thing lo
end? Is it to btop with nlno counties hi
Bouui uaroiina v or is it to pursue
thoso fleeing citizens wherever they
havo gone, and tho limits within which
habeas corpus i3 suspended, shall em-
braco sixteen States, nnd tho wholo
South bo onco moro declared In Insur
rection ami rebellion?
