The party styling itself democracy has
a great, deal to say about Congress for en
tertaining measures for impeaching An
drew Johnson, and in some cases even
threaten or advise resistance bv force.—
These "disciples of Thomas Jefferson,"
who practice Jefferson's principles in
about the same degree that a certain name
less old fellow does Christianity, in this,
as 'in most other eases, do not seem to
know what th.-y are talking about, us a
few facts will show.
The first impeachment case tried by the
Senate ol the United States occurred in
1804 when Mr. Jefferson came into power,
and the articles were preferred by his po
litical friends by a strict party vote. 81
yeas to 40 nays, against Judge Chase of
T lie material charges were based on two
judicial acts of Judge Chase, while hold
ing Circuit Courts—one in Pennsylvania,
and one in Virginia. The two cases in
which this delinquency was asserted were
the famous trials of John Fries, for trea
son, and of James Thompson Cullender,
for sedition. They figure among the most
exciting topics of discussion during the
whole period of the struggle between the
Federalists and the Republicans.
The Fries case was tried in Philadel
phia. In the spring of 1799 an insurrec
tion broke out in the counties of Bucks
and Northampton. Pennsylvania, against
the execution of the laws of the United
Ftates for assessing and collecting taxes.
John Fries was indicted as a ringleader
and tried on the charge of high treason!
On his first trial his counsel pleaded that
resisting by force a particular law of the
L nited States does not amount to levying
war against the United States, in' the
meaning of the Constitution. The court
composed of Justices Iredell and Peters!
rtiietl against theui, and Fries was con
victed. A new trial was granted on
another ground, and on the second trial
Justice Chase sat with Judge Peters. On
this trial Judge Chase announced in ad
vance, to the prisoner's counsel, that the
opinion of the court was made up on this
constitutional point, ami the counsel need
not argue it. The counsel retired from
the case, ami Fries was convicted without ;
defense. It is this ruling that was de
clared to be so " arbitrary, oppressive, and
unjust, as to demand impeachment.
The other case arose in t lie Circuit Court
ot \ irginia, under the sedition law of
That famous act made it a misdemeanor
punishable with tine ami imprisonment,
for any person to write, print, utter or
publish a thing intended " to defame the
President of the Tinted States or bring
nun into contempt or disrepute." Under
this act James J hompson Cullender was
indicted for having published a political
article against President Adams, under
the title o! " '1 he Prospect before us." On
the trial Judge Chase overruled the ob
jection ot one of the jurors that he had
made up his mind that the publication
was seditious, and constrained him to
serve on the trial. 11 was also charged
that he had arbitrarily, and for merely
political purposes, ruled out important
testimony lor the prisoner.
There was a special charge of indecent
partisanship in his charge to a grand jury
in Maryland. *
I hese are the material points on which
the testimony was taken and on which
the argument was made.
On the Oth of February, 1805, the case
came up and occupied the Senate until the
Ist of tfarch. On that day the judgment
ot the Senate was pronounced, each mem
ber being in his place and answering
guilty or not guilty on each charge when
rhirty-four senators were present. A
majority pronounced him guilty on three
of the eight articles prepared.
Two of these related to the ruling in !
Calender's ease, and the other, the eighth |
in order, related to the charge of depart- '
ing iroiu the duties and proprieties of his
station by delivering a political harange
in the form of a charge to the grand jury
of the I nited States Circuit Court in Bal
timore. On the charges growing out of
the Fries ease he was acquitted. There
was not a vote of two-thirds on any of the
articles, and lie was accordingly pronounc
ed to be acquitted on all.
I 1 rom this it will be seen that the Jef
ferson democracy, comprising men who
had aided in forming that Constitution
w lieli copperheads now prate so much
about, lound reason for impeaching a fed
eral Judge for wjint would now he consid
ered very trivial uu,,,. of not one-tenth
as much importance as many acts done by
Andrew Johnson, as well as a number of
bis copperhead Judges.
A correspondent who has traveled
much, sends us the following article rela
tive to the country recently purchased by
the United States, the treaty for which
has been ratified by the Senate:
We have l)cen accustomed to regard
Russian America as anything else than a
laud of promise. Both in its political and
climatic relations it has heretofore pre
sented itself to our minds as the natural
associate of Siberia. Now, that it has been
made somewhat more of a household
word, perhaps a few rambling statements
in reference to it from one who visited it
may not be unacceptable.
First, A glance at our map will show
us that it is a western coast, and extends
from latitude fU north to latitude 71°
north. Now what may we safely infer
from these data? Simply, that its cli
matic relations are similar to those of
western Europe under the same parallels.
The countries included there between
these limits are Northern Ireland, Scot
land, Orkney Islands, Shetland Islands,
Faroe Islands, Denmark, Sweden, Nor
way, and part of Russia, including its
great cities St. Petersburg ami Moscow.
The same latitudes are represented on our
own coast by the country lying between
New Found land and Northern Greenland.
Here, then, we have North Western
Europe with its civilization and enterprise,
the homes of enlightened millions, and
Eastern North America apparently
doomed to an eternal sterility; but both
under the same parallels, it is superflu
ous to state that the gulf stream is the
great furnace which heats up the one side,
and that its waters are but one degree
colder on reaching the island of Spitzber
gen than when they sweep through the
Straits of Bernini oil 1 the coast of Florida;
and that we are indebted to the cold cur
rent from Davis' Strait for the chilling
temperature of Labrador. Now just such
u current as the Gulf Stream warms up
our western coast; itcrosses Indian Ocean,
sweeps up along the coast of Asia, drifting
with it camphor trees to suppy the inhab
itants of the Aleutian Islands with wood.
The same current sets it north through
Behring's Strait at the rate of four miles
an hour, and its torpid waters go to warm
up the great, open, Circum-polar Ocean,
just as do those of the Gulf Steaui, but
by a different route. These are the out
lines of its climatic relations. Those de
siring further information will find it in
such works as the Cosmos, Guyot'sEarth
and Man, Physical Geography of the Sea,
Physical Geography of either Soinerville
or llerschell,or Keith Johnston's Physical
Atlas. Vancouver Island, but little south of
Russian America, grows the cereal grains
without difficulty, and the meteorological
record of the island, give a mean annual
temperature, within one degree of that of
England. Barley is grown at Litka, and
of course may be at all points south of it.
But I need go on no farther in this strain,
a glance at the isothermal lines, projected
on any physical atlas, will explain all at a
glance. We need the coast and islands
adjacent as a nursery for our fishermen,
that in time of war we may have a body
of sailors hardy as those of Great Britiali
breeds on the Orkney, Shetland, or Faroe
Islands. We need it for its fisheries,
which are equal to those of New Found
land. To-day every dried cod fish eaten
on our western coast has to go from the
east round Cape Horn, yet they may be
taken by myriads within two weeks sail
of San Francisco. All that is needed is
that we own the fishing banks and afford
the proper encouragement and protection,
to enterprise. We need it for its timber
certainly, and possibly for its coal. The
Steekin River Indians are in the habit of
making from the single trunks of its mag
nificent cedars, canoes which will carry
from four to six tons. I need say nothing
of the value of its fur trade; it is as valua
ble that branch of enterprise can be,
though perhaps it would hardly pay the
government to purchase it for this alone,
but we do need it because Great Britain
has protested against tiie ratification of
the treaty. NKMO.
