A Long and Eventful Life
In noticing the fact that the inaugura
tion of Mr. LINCOLN was the eighth cere
mony of the kind at which Chief Justice
TANEY had officiated, the Cincinnati
Times remarks: "What eventful changes
have transpired during the period embra
oed from the accession of MARTIN VAN
BuREN to the Presidency up to the pre
sent time I And they have taken place
during the official lifetime of a man ad
vanced in years when invested with the ea.-
ored ermine of Justice. Judge TANEY was
one of the leading intellects in the United
States Senate when the United States
Bank was made an issue by the Whig par
ty, and dashed like the shock of a mighty
waves against the popularity of ANDREW
JACKSON'S Administration, but whose
surges fell back again before the rock
upon which that popularity was enthron
ed. He was a leading spirit of that Ad
ministration, and sustained it on the floor
of the Senate with eminent power and
ability. On the occurrence of a vacancy,
by the death of the venerable JOHN MAR
SHALL, the mantle he wore was transfer
red to Mr. TANEY ; nor was there ever a
murmur that it was not worthily bestow
ed, after momentary political rancor had
done its worst, until the Dred Scott de•
oission, oonflioting with the political views
of party, again submitted the venerable
statesman and jurist to the ' animadver
sions of the censorious.
How different the leading principles of
the Administrations, Judge TANEY in
augurated ! Mr. VAN BUREN'S policy
had been foreshadowed by the preceding
Administration. In portions of the
country the struggle for the reinstatement
of the Bank of the United States was con
tinued, although Mr. EWING, in a letter
written from Marietta, said that it was not
an issue in the canvass, and it was cer
tainly not desired to be made an issue by
General HARRISON. That the people
were averse to the re-establishment of the
United States Bank was indicated by the
nomination of Gen. HARRISON over Mr.
CLAY at Harrisburg—the former known
to favor a restoration of the deposites to
the Bank restored to its former privileges
and "usances," as imminently necessary
to the direction and controlment of the
exchanges of the country, and a uniform
circulating medium. After events have
shown whether the exchanges could reg
ulate themselves and in what manner, and
how the country could accommodate itself
to a different policy than that observed
under the "great regulator."
The leading features of Mr. TyLitit's
Administration were the final disposition
of the Bank of the United States, the
little and big Tariff, and the proposed an
nexation of Texas, opposition to which
was fatal to the prospects of Mr. CLAY
and Mr. VAN BuREN in the ensuing con
test. Mr. POLK succeeding, the annexa
tion of Texas consummated, against stren
uous opposition, based principally upon
the theory that our empire was sufficient
ly extensive, and like that of Rome,
might fall of its own extent and hetero
geneous elements. The Mexican war was
commenced and consummated, for his par
ticipation in which, Gen. TAYLOR, as a
successful commander, was made the next
Then grew into importance the difficult
ies which even yet distract the country—
the reconcilement of the conflicting views
between Northern and Southern politi
oians. During the Administration of
President TAYLOR, the compromise, in
accomplishing which the greatest minds
of the nation were engaged, was not ac
complished, retarded, it was thought by
some, by the ambitious views of the then
Secretary of State, Mr. CLAYTON. On
the accession of Mr. FTLLMORE, the
nerves of the country were pacified by
the acceptance of the compromise of
Contrary to general expectation, Mr.
Puna, a subordinate in the Mexican
war, and of no very brilliant antecedents;
succeeded to the Presidency over the ac
knowledged Captain whose triumphant
march from Vera Cruz to the City of the
Montezumas was unexampled in the an
nals of our country, and stamped him
the hero of the war. The chief feature
of this Administration was the repeal of
the Missouri Compromise, the birth and
growth of the Republican party, the re
opening of the sectional issues which, it
bad been thought, were effectually put to
eternal rest by the Compromise of 1850,
and the inauguration of the embittered
feeling which now arrays one part of the
country in antagonism to the Other, with
a fearful prospect of its settlement in
civil war and disaster. Then, too, was
introduced, what had been foreshadowed,
the principle of popular sovereignty,
which occupied the attention of the
country, and formed the basis for the cul
mination of the hopes of the "Little
Giant" to reach the Presidency. Al
though the acknowledged leader of the
Democratic party, Mr. DOUGLAS was
doomed to disappointment, and Mr. Bu-
CHANAN, supposed to be a conservative
and safe statesman, was invested with
Presidential honor. The conflict between
the North and South, the angry discus
sions, the political mancenvres on all
sides, the struggles over Kansas, the con
spiracies of cabinet officers, the derileo
don of men sworn to obey the Constitu
tion, the rebellion of States, and the
threatened dismemberment of the Union,
mark his Presidential career.
And now comes Mr. LINCOLN into the
Presidency, and, although elected upon
the great sectional issue dividing the
Northern and Southern sentiment, still
elected without conflict with the direction
of the Constitution. His Inaugural Ad
dress is before the country, and has gen
orally proved acceptable to those who are
not bound by determined opposition to
the integrity of the Union. His future
is before him, as yet undeveloped—a
a page on which a brilliant chapter of our
history may be written in rays of sunshine,
or which may be dabbled by clots of
blood, and a story of fields of carnage.
These important revealments it has
been the star of Chief Justice TAIIET's
fortune to witness. From 1837 to 1861,
he has administered the oath to support
the Constitution to our Presidents. He,
in whose young ears the roar of the Re
uolution must have sounded, has lived
through the rising greatness, the unexam
pled prosperity, the culminating grandeur
of his country, to witness the threatening
abyss upon which it stands. May Heaven
and wise counsels avert so dread a catas
trophe as that which would prove the
darkest hour of mankind—the destruo_
tion of the American Union I
A VOICE Fon THE UNIOM IN NEW On-
LEANS.—The New Orleans True Delta
still stands firmly for the Union, and
daily thunders forth its denunciations of
the secessionists. It concludes an article
denouncing Mr. Buchanan as a traitor to
his country, and Senator Slidell as having
clung to him "whine there was an office
to dispense, a job to be consummated,
or a country to betray," with the fol
lowing prediction :
"Our opinion is that, sooner or later, the
abortions of Washington and Montgomery will
be brushed away, and the true Democracy 'Of
the nation, enlightened by the past, will re
sume the administration of their country, pu•
rify its councils, do justice to all sections, and,
with a united front, again place this nation in
that commanding position before the world
from which villainous conspirators for the mo
ment have degraded it."
Tam Senate, yesterday, adopted a reso
lution requesting the Governor to return
the bill now in his hands, appropriating
$30,000 for Kansas. It is understood
that facts have come to light, with refer
ence to the appropriation, which have in
duced many of its former supporters to
change their minds as to its propriety,
and the Governor does not wish to sign
THE NORTH CAROLINA CONVENTION.
Although the Unionists have carried the
State by a very large majority, it appears,
so far as the returns have been made,
that those voting for a Convention have a
majority of about fifteen hundred. This
is regarded as quite lucky by the Uuion
ists, who prefer to be in the hands of the
Convention rather than in those of a
Legislature strong in Breckenridge tac
PENSIONED TRAITONS.—It is said that
among the Secessionists now in arms
against the National Government, are
persons who are on the pension rolls of
the Republic. These patriots deserve to
receive their pay from the public treasury
regularly and promptly.
HON. JOHN J. CRITTENDEN.—This

part of next week.

sued a circular advising the immediate in

WASHINGTON, March 15.

This decision is regarded as having a bearing
on the question of secession, as the property in
suit, amounting to several million of dollars, is
located in New Orleans. It virtually expresses
the opinion of the Court " that the Union is
unbroken," and that its decisions are equally
binding in Louisiana as in the other States of
the Union. The Secessionists havelately main
tained the position that the decisions of the
Supreme Court are binding on all Constitu
tional questions ; so that they will be compell
ed to make an exception in this case, or repu
diate their doctrine.

KENTUCKY AND OHIO MANDAMUS CASE.
Adverse Decision of the Supreme Court—Congress
Cannot Impose any .Duly on a State Officer..
Chief Justice Taney delivered the opinion of
the Supreme Court to day in the matter of the
Commonwealth of Kentucky against.the Gov
ernor of Ohio, (Democrat,) deciding that it was
a case of ofiginal jurisprudence, and, in effect,
of one State against another ; and, therefore,
the Court has jurisdiction under the Constitu
tion. It is a case to compel the Governor of
Ohio, by writ of mandamus, to surrender a fu
gitive from justice from Kentucky. And the
Court says the demanding State has a right to
have every such fugitive delivered up ; that
the State of Ohio has no right to enter into the
question whether the act of which the fugitive
stands accused is criminal or not in Ohio, pro
vided it was a crime in Kentucky, and it is the
duty of the Governor of Ohio to deliver up,
upon any proper proof that the act charged is
'a crime by the laws of Kentucky ; that the act
of Congress of 1793 determines what evidence
s to be submitted to the State of Ohio ; that
the duty of the Governor is ministerial mere
ly, like that of a Sheriff or Marshal, and the
Court appeals to his good faith in the discharge
of a Constitutional duty for the reason that
Congress cannot impose any Federal duty on
the officers of a State, and that where such of
ficers are called upon by an act of Congress to
perform such duty, it relies upon good 'sense
and good faith on their park And, on these
grounds, the writ ef inandtenus was granted.
