Editor Bluffton Banner, Binifton

We paid no_ attention to this tyrannical

ViOla4digham Meetings.
None of the , infamous acts of the infa
mous administration seems to have arous
ed popular indig,natipn like the
gham outrage: Meetings_to denounce the
act, are being held in the large towns and
cities, Which area atteded by immense
numberk of People. The - meeting at
Philadelphia. last week was perhaps the
largest ever: 'convened Independence
Square. The epeecbes and resolutions
were admirable. As the resolutions are
lengthy, we quote those passed
at a meeting in . •Newark,lT. J c -
nereasi Itis - not only the , privilege`hut
the duty of freemen to withstand the en
ornaments of the . Executive, ,and to re
buke with firrnness those iii- po . werWho,
under any plea
' however specious, may
presume to assault the rights of the peo
ple; therefor% -
Resolved, That now, when despotism 1
has seized the government„ boldness is I
prudence, and that we shall avoid most of
all the counsels of the timid or time-serv
ing politicians. (Cheers.) .
11./?,esolved, That the-people , have thus far
suhinitted to the illegal acts of the admin.
istration not because they,are ignorant of
their ri,,olts,lor because they are indiffer
ent to the inestimable blessings of liberty,
nor becaese they are wanting in courage
to resist the aggressions of lawless power,
but because they = have patiently hoped
that the President and his advisers would
desist from their - violations of the Consti
tution in time to save themselves and the
country from the consequences to which
such acts inevitably , lead. "(Cheers.)
Resolved, That in the illegal seizure and
banishment of Hon. C. L. -Vallandigham,
the laws of our country have been out-.
raged, the name'of the . United States dis
°racedr and the rights of 'every citizen
menaced, and that it is-now, the duty of a
law-respecting , people to demand of the
administration that it at once and forever
desist from such deeds of despotism and
crime. (Enthusiasm.)_ ,
Resolved, That we have reason taker,
from.the violation_ by the administration
of the laws paised at, its own instarice,and
from the acts and threats of cabinet offi,.
cers.and generals in the army, a eettled
purpose to establish, instead of an elec
tive Goverritherit, a military despotismy
and that if -thelimoshould unhappily nr-i
rive when our „rulers shall madly attempt
to deprive tis of an appeal tothe ballot;
box, tt will then be the plain - right and du
ty of the people to withdraw their, consent;
from such a qovernmeid,and to e.onutruet,'
by the speediest and Most'available meads
in their. power, tha government eStablish
ed by - our fathers. (Tremendous eheers.),
Besolved; That we heartily ,appreveof
the sentiments expressed ;by Governor
Seymour in his .resent letter, and that his,'
truthful; and timely vindication -of the
rights of freemen entitle ',him to_ - the ies-11
pect and"iiteenlof every loier. of liberty. ;

Statute of Edward • 111 for the-i3ectirity of

were never before criminal at all. Thus,

In the act of Edward 111, all thefkinds of
treason are enumerated, and, every other

The United States Government .has on
its statute book a definition of the crime

framers of the Constitution, not stopping
at the limitation of the Species of crime a
mounting to treason, have also prescribed
