WE Am occasionally struck by the tine
said solid sense evinced by that uncom
promisingly Democratic journal, the Phil
adelphia New,. It is really refreshing to
find one such journal in Pennsylvania,
which dares to speak the troth sometimes,
and which always knows how to do it
effectively. For example, it now says:
The Democratic party must be "recon
structed." or rather something else must
be substituted for it. The leaders sold
it out in New York; it was sold out many
*time before in Pennsylvinia, and will
be beaten again in this State in the cora
lug awns, if new men are not put for
wartto manage and direct it.

xes a tive elections, at an early date, no
'der the law of last week, aid by the Con
gressional approval la December. Under
the power conferred upon the. Preaident,
each of their Constitutions will be sub
mitted to separate votes upon their contro
l'ejW seetions—the effect of which will be
to secure the adoption of the main body
of each instrument, by the respective
peoples, andihe transfer of all questions
eonceining disfranchisement to Congress
for a final settlement.
Ito oitosnuarrow has yet been effected

elected opposition members persisting in
their demand for inadmissible concessions

not been encouraged by the success of
their recent Appeal to the people. The
boltere have been re-elected by largely di
minished votes, in some cases being op
posed by independent candidates of their

hangs upon those precise considerations
which ithe House of Representatives
would now urge him to abandon. He is
aware of the universally prevalent belief
that the journals alluded to are heavily
subsidized, from the funds of the
wealthy insurgents, to swallow their
crw n uguments and jeremiads against
the unfriendly haste of England, and to
neutralize, in New York and Philadel
phia, the blunders of Earl' Russn!,..t., the
international honesty of Glasgo* and

If the President were really unaware of
the absolute need for the greatest caution
in these premises, we should not hesitate
to implore him to take no such action,
against a power at peace with us, until
this country shall be fitly represented at
the English . Court; until our new
ter shall be fully instructed as to all
our claims for reparation from Great
Britain, for her unfriendly policy
and acts during our rebellion,—and
then, when our • Alabama case is cotn
pletely prepared, the only policy in
which the President can be justified, •to
wards Spain and her rebel province, will
be precisely that by which our own
claims against England must stand or
fall Oar Cuban policy must- be squared
by that which we are urging in London,
or the Alabama•case. will be itself ruined
altogether by this wretched schede of
West Indian filibustering.
We warn the Administration- and the
country not to be deceived for a moment
by the clamorous cry of half a dozen venal
newspapers. Let these shriek'in concert
for "Cuban freedom" as long, as loudly
and with as much ludicrous inconsistency
as they may severally be paid for from
Cuban funds. They may abuse their
own types and the credulity of their un•
reflecting readers, but
_they do not re
present the National intelligence and
honesty. The people sympathize with
struggling liberty everywhere, but it must
present clearer claims than these Cuban
insurgents have yet shown. That Spain
which followed the English lead, in giv
ing countenance to our own rebels, is not
the Spain which now resists the spoliation
of her most valuable dependency. The
revolution, which expelled Bourbonism
from her throne, wiped out every vindic
tive feeling from the American breast. If
any claims for reparation remain to ut
against the Spanish people, let us present
them in form and await their rejection,be
fore visiting upon a third-rate foreign pow
er the revenge which no "precedent" justi
fies in that cue. This would be vastly
more creditable to the American honor,
than to retire' from an unprofitable contest
with a first-rate power like Great Britnin,.
in order to rob Spain because she is really
powerless to resist ua. •
Our people cannot afford to give up the
Alabama claims, in the,intereat of Cu
ban recognition. That is the whole case,
and we believe that the Administration
so understands it. The rights of our cit
izens in Cuba are to be duly protected,
and the rights of Spain over her beautiful
but inquiet province will be faittifdlly
respected. Beyond these liMits, Amen•
can honor can never go ; if it falls short
of them, it will earn the derision of Chris
tendom; the only actual peril, to-day, is
that we may, thoughtlessly, or negligent
ly, drift away from the right , moorings,
and ,into the most unfortunate complies
none before we know it. '
It is proper to remind our friends,
throughout the - Commonwealth, that re
sults of the highest local consequence are
to be controlled by the next Autumn's
election. A Governor, a 1 3upreme Judge
and other officers are to be chosen, with
one-third of the Senate, and the entire
body of the Representative branch of the
Legislature. The Governor is to hold
his office for three years, an d
. the new Sen
ators will have the same term. The Rep
resentatives are chosen annually. Hold
ing the veto-power, 'the approval of, the
Executive is essential to , the validity of
all legislation. 'Hence, this . legislation,.

,upork, all questions which are
likely to , array ,tie' People in 'political di
vislous, suuSt-be controlled by the politi
cal opinions of the new Executive,, and,
as ii . probable,' to a considerable extent,
by the Senators chosen In 1.869.
• First in political coniequence among
such questions, will be those which relate
to, the appoitionment among the counties
of the State, of our Congressional repre
sentation under the census of 1870. The
statistics of this census will be placed be
fore Congress in the winter of-'7O-'7l,
and the number of our Representatives
will be fixed at the eaillest possible day of
that sessions doubtless in season for ac
tion thereupon by our Legislature, at its
session, commencing is January, 1870.

This concurrent duty, of the two ap

Pennsylvania until 1941. The Governor

control the apportionment-polle.y of 1809 1

session-but once, and upon the same Gov
ernor and Senators but four times, in the
Seventy years' period.
Leaving the later dates to take dare of
themselves, let us say- one word respect
ing the canvass of next October. We
need not dwell on the very great import
ance of retaining the control of those re
sponsible duties, In the hands which
represent the settled opinions of the pop
ular majority in this Commonwealth.
What Might, and would, be attempted in
`the way of effectively disfranchi l sing pat
majority, by a Legislature in which acci
cient or neglect should present a Demo
cratic preponderance, we have already
good reason to know. They would so
gerrymander the apportionments as to
retain . 'the legislative control, and 'the
largest number of Congressmen, in the
face of popular majorities against them,
and these majorities would be powerless
to prevent the wrong. -
Our friends must theref?re perceive how
necessary it will be, not only to guard
the Senatorial elections of October,
watching the strong districts and vigor
contestthe close ones, but also to
go into theneral canvass with the
strongest ticor State officers within the
selection of e Republican party. We
have a seven years' war to fight next
autumn; unie we win that battle de
cisively, we a doomed to seven follow
ing years of uniform defeat, from which
no poprilar majorities, however decisive,
can afterwards redeem `the' Repub
lican organization. Beaten on the Gov
ernor and Senators, and especially on the
first, in October, no future reaction of
popular sentiment can help us; we shall
be bound, and past relief. With timely
prudence,—with personal concessions and
self-denials,--with fidelity to principles
alone,—without the sacrifice of higher
aims to private ambition, or to the jeal- '
mules of cabals; —with the Republican
party united, as it has been and ever should
be, upon the single principle of the
greatest good to the greatest number —a
principle as applicable to the discipline of a
party as to the policy of a Republic,—With
a bold avowal of tbs living doctrines of
progress ; —with candidates who can
stand upen the platform, and are
not to be , sacri fi ced . to personal
feelings beneath it or beside it,
—with a square and honest pull altogether,
we can do even better next Autumn than
we did under GRANT last November, se
curing a seven years' Republican suprem
acy in this great Commonwealth.
In this view we mull regard the Man,
or the men, no matter whom, who shall
carry personal ambitions or animosities
into the ensuing canvass, to the peril and
perhaps to theirreparable injury of the
party, as unworthy of Republican confi
dence, or even of the Republican name.

THE PREROGATIVE OP MERCY.
GOverllOr GI AZT hatrvery properly ve
toed the bill passed last week, which as
smiled to authorize to Executive commu
.tation of the death penalty to a life-im
prisonment, on his discretion. The veto
, is strictly in consonance with the Con ;
stitution of Pennsylvania; indeed the
provisions of that instrument left no al
ternative for the ExeCutive consideration.
The commutation proposition was clearly
In contravention of the fundamental law
of the Commozwealtii, of which section
IX,' article 2, treating of the powers of
the Governor, reads as follows:
He shall have power to remit_ leas and
forfeitures, andirrant.reprieves and par
dons, except in cases of itnpeachment.

These citations embody the entire gin

Their text andltenor ebiarly establish - 04 3
Invalhlity:,.e( . 44 , leoslation which
have violated his own official oath for
"the faithfill execution of the laws"—
first of which, and at the base of all valid
legislation, is the Constitution itself.
There is to-day—and it has been equal
ly true for the entire thirty years since the
adoption of the present Constitution—no
power, tither in the Legislature or in the
Governor, or in both departments con
jointly, authorizing the commutation of
one form of penisity, following eonvic
thin for offences, into any other form.
The Governor may remit a penalty alto
gether by his pardon; he may suspend its
execution by a rePrieve; he may-forgive
the crime, or may delay its punishment,but
cannot substitute one penalty fir another.
That is a power which the people of this
Coinmonwealth have never yet conferred
upon either Governor, Legislature, or '
both together, and which abides ,with the
people, until it may be expressly granted
by the proper change to be made in the
fundamental law. It was legally enough
that no power of commutation was given
by the section first cited. The maxim is
law, that the specified definition of any
function, right, or duty, excludes all
all other things not specified. The ex
pressed right to remit penalties, to grant
pardons and reprieves,is a legal prohibition
to exercise any rights or powers not there
in embraced. In that view, the cited
section as clearly prohibits the proposed
power of commutation, as it Maintains
the defined limits of the Executive prerog
ative. No power but that of the people can
give this right,—and that power can only
be executed in the proper channel of a Con
This is no new question. It has been
alwiys a familiar one, not onjr to the
legal profession and- to the Executive
Chathber, but, to all' well-informed citi
zens. There' has been scarcely sryear,
since the date of this Constitution in 'BB,.
when there has not lain, rn some prison
of the Commonwealth, some miserable
offender, convicted and duly sentenced•to
death, whose case has addressed itself to
the Executive mercy as one not juitifyiug
that penalty, ydt not wholly deserving of
a free pardon. Under our laws, the
Courts declare the .death-penalty : the
Governor alone designates the day of its
execution. Hence, official clemency
might spare the life of thi) Offendez, not
with the pardon which he did not merit,
but in the simple omission to issue the
warrant for execution. And so, the
Wretched criminal might be left lan
guishing, •year after year, in his dungeon,
his life in one man's hand, judicially dead
already,' yet dying a daily death, until
released by pardon or by the common
fate of mortality. Such a criminal lives,
and has for eleven years, lived, in Hoye
mensing prison to•day. There is another
one there, if not lately deceased, who has
bean so confined for twenty years. The
HESTER Vetronar case has attracted the
attention of the whole:Christian world.
This condition of our criminal justice
presents an anomaly not more remarkable
than indefensible. Its amendment has
been frequently proposed, and often by
imperfect legialative methods, the latest
of which was vetoed last week. The
Constitution must be reformed; until then,
paxadozical as 'the remark may seem,
that instrument effectively confers upon
thp Executive a right, altogether uncon
stitutional as it is unknown to its text,
that of inflicting an impritionnient for
life. He luta this power 'already in legal
effect, and constitutionally exercises it;
the recent bill aimed at its specific legali
zation, and was therefore clearly uncon
We thank Governor GEARY for his Ex
ecutive fidelity in this matter. 'We have
no desire to censure the humane prompt
lags which have led the Legislature to
overstep the coustitutional limits. Rather,
we shall rejoice if the people of Pennsyl
vania are at last to discover, as a result
of this discussion, the need for such a
change of our fundamental law' as shall
inimanely and wisely enlarge the Execu
tive prerogative, in the interests of j ustice
and of an enlightened humanity.
