    flounced in the Decburst:Emil lielependence,
that "the military is inferior and subject to the
civil powers."
Congress has no judielatauthority and only
a secondary law-making power, subject to the
organic restrictions of the Constitution. Its
action in refunding the fines imposed upon a
great warrior for a fault in early life, is no
argument against the justice and validity of
the law imposing the fine. Fines are often re-
milted, but this in no wise effeets the law.
After a quarter of a century,: the Congress
of the United States refunded tweet. Jackson
the fake with interest aceruhrg, brit Congress
cbauge billitaikeAtenar argue
its change. It had no power to do it. The
case itself was one of 'Most' extraordinary
character. Gem. Jaelmon was the most deter
minedly popular of all the statesmen, generale,
or public men of his day. An unblemished
integrity added to an undoubted courage direc
ted by a most marvellous sagacity, which was
scarcely-lems•fortunate in its choice,made him
a popular Idol, whose very name thrills the
public heart of the children of those brave men -
who stood by his fortunes in peace and in war,
through life and in death, and who after his
death almost worshipped the memory of his
existence. The battle of NewOrlearte was the
most signal triumph, the most magnificent ex
hibition of military skill ever recorded—in the
history of arms it is yetunrivalled. The military
glory consequent upon that victory dazzled the
mind of the whole nation, and astonished the
military captains of Europe. This great bat
tle concluded the hostility of the war of 1812.
The people were weary, sick- and exhausted
with war, and honored every man who had
contributed to terminate the strife.
It is not true that martial law eared New
Orleans. The victory was a foregone conclu
sion. Secured by the disposition of the armies,
the discipline of the camp, the skill of the
commanding officer, but more than all, by the
love of that liberty burning in the bosom of
the citizen soldiers which secured the supre
macy of the civil over the military authority.
The organization far victory was complete be•
fore—the declaration of martial law only dim
med its blazing glory. The declaration of
martial law is the suspension of the civil exist
ence of a people. Its long continuance is the ,
death of civil government. The mixture of civil
and martial law in the government of a cone
try is an absurdity, for which law dictionaries,
common sense, and free government his re:-
fused to appropriate names. Yet this is the
motley jargon of the President, subject to these
manifest diethurtions. We accept the Pied
-
dent's proposition, that he is invested, by the
laws of war, with the powers of war as pre
scribed by the articles of war. We accord to
him the right as Commander-in-Chief—of
whom ? The citizen non-combatants ? Women
and children? No. Only soldiers and seamen
in actual service with such citizens as place
themselves in such immediate contact with the
army, as by the articles of war, subjects them
to the government of the camp. By what au
thority, then,does he banish citizens from their
homes, their property, c and their familes ? Not
by authority of the Constitution of the United
States, it grants no such powers. Not by the
laws of the country, there are no such laws—
there can be none such. N* by the articles
of war—the articles of war contemplate no trial
of citizens, and Congress has no power to give
authority even to courts-martial to try citi
zens. They must be tried on indictment by a
jury in the district where the offence is com
mitted.
Has the oppression of men, the imprisonment
of citizens by soldiers, the whole nameless cat
alogue of wrongs suffered by the people and in
flicted by that President, any higher authority,
any clearer justification in law than the ban
isment of citizens ?—a prerogative which the
British monarch has never dared to exercise in
modern times.
We were not made for war. Whatever may
be its apparent good, war is a fearful calamity.
But when war ceases amon • civilized men.
Wrongs, and forgetfulness of evils. But
President contemplates the return of peace as
a time for barbarian negroes to lord it over
white men, 5' with silent tongues and clenched
teeth and steady eye and well peised baYonet."
But he'remindi the white men' who differ with
him in opinion that they shall not be able to for

platform and maintain its doateinea ea' the lair
of the land. The Chicago platform, /with all
its faults, did declare in favor of "free speech,"
" free press, " free conscience," trial by jury,-
and the rights of States. -
After the, people had reluctantly accepted
the last alternative—this platform, the Presi
dent suppressed free speech, suspendeda free
press, abolished trial by jury, wipes out State
lines,abolishee State inatitutionsiarrestajudges
and members of State legislatures, and de
clares the supremacy of aiiiitearlaw. Then
the people are willing to be governed even - by
military law, rather than be left in• anarchy, if
they might first knew its mandates and avoid
its penalties. • -
As soon as military law was understood to
be the • rule of government, military mobs, ex
cesses, and 'outrages were perpetrated every
where, and the people denied redress- from
military courts, or protection - from militnry
authority. Military law was then suspended,
and the announcement made that the country
was placed under, the higher law--...tha law of
the church, and of liod, and of Heaven. This
was an old law : • *tto• love Ike •Lordthy God
with all thy mind and all thy soul said an thy

Thaddeus Stevens, the organot-the - Presi
dent in Pennsylvania and Ike of the
Republican party in Congress, ear:- " The
Constitution es it is and the Union' as it mss,
Void forbid it." That such a man with ouch a
record should leads party in Parrasylratbsis
itself sufficient to arouse suspicion. .This-Pa=
Titan -eminiesa,ry of New England •Atheism-4i.
Canada thistle in the rich soil of Peansyvania
—was transplanted in an early day. His first
estrance into public life was an exhibition of
that pragmatical spirit of persecution which
has marked his whole course. He, as the lea
der of an inquisitorial faction, who clambered
into the State Capitol as
. wgents thug their
slimy folds throne'. crevicuAdiraggfrock to
diary height.
On his motion in;Tiol+n 10 the Mosta*
Lion of the United Stites andtthat of Tennsy)-
vania—venerable ministers of the Gospel,
Judges of the Courts, quiet, inoffensive far
mers and mechanics, were arrested and brought
before a self-constituted star chamber to suffer
insult for retaining thelme . mbership in a hia.
sonic lodge.
In the convention to amend the Constitution
of the State, he withheld his name from the
organic law, because it 'denied political equali
ty tab negroes, whom he had made his social
equals. He inaugurated the buckshot war in
this city, to defeat a lawful election by the
people of the State. A speculator in railroads,
the very sight of his own public wrongs became
an eye-sore and drove him from Adams coun
ty. Like the serpent warmed into life by the
woodmen's fire, he struck his poisonous fangs
into the merciful hand of his kind hearted
benefactor. This viper, by the institutions of
this free country elevated from the humblest
walk of life to - the highest position in the gift
of the people, takes a solemn oath to support
the Constitution ; and, as though perjury were
sweeter to his poisoned taste than honey, and
more delicious to his envenomed mind than the
honey-comb, in therpresence•of his own con
stituents, with uplifted hand, appealing to
Heaven, he asks the God of truth to attest his
violated honor and broken faith, and cries with
emphasis, "The Constitution as it is and the
'Union as it was. God forbid it." •It has been
the business of his life to tauntalize, to swag
ger and bully, to insult and overawe every man
who differed with him in opinion, or thwarted
the purposes of his ambition. The vernacular
of the sewer, the garbage of literature, the dia-
lect of the fish market, the expletives of bil
lingsgate, the' by=words of the esiabeese, the
cant phrases of the lower deck of steamboat's,
and the nomenclature of the Five Points were
studied .by him, until slander and libel, vitu
peration and de traction, were reduced to a sal
ence and followed as a business. He exhibited
his capacity as a common scold and cultivated
his talent as calumniator at the bar and on the
stump. He prepared his :tirades for newspa
pers, and•ineorporated them into his speeches.
until he laid claim to national reputation, upon
the ground that his scurrility of speech, ob
ebenity of language, and vulgarity of phrase
ology wail without parallel in the land. But
after drinking from the exhaustless fountain
of his own malevolent bitterhess, until swollen
with rage,• inflated with egotism, and wild - with
ambition, he has lifted the flood-gates of his
heart to pour forth his depravity, sparing in
denunciation neither age 'or sex. In all his
vast resources he could scarcely husband lan.
guage adequate to the truthful portraiture et
his own wickedness and putrefaction, pictured
without exaggeration, and painted in modest
colors.
The issue is imade up. "The Constitution
as it is, the Union as it was"-- - - . .our creed, our
faith, our hope, our salvation.
Stevens says, "God forbid it." Stevens is
responded to by Sumner. It is a confession of
faith of the Republican party. With this creed .
as the basis, our nationality must perish with
out hope.
Is there no remedy ?no hope 2 Is there no
balm in Gilead ? Is there no physician there ?
Change your public servans ; change your
manner of administration; execute the laws ;

One of the largest meetings ever held in the
county assembled at Williamsport on the 17th.
The people flocked in from every section of the
county, in carriages, wagons, on horseback,
and on foot, and when the hour for organizing
arrived, the people were there in their majesty
and strength to " put it through."
Gov. Packer presided, and made a short
speech. The speakers on the occasion were
Hon. Mester Clymer, of Reading, Hon. Wm.

of Philadelphia, and J. H. Orvie, Esq., of Bel

Two large and enthusiastic meetings have

spirit of the meeting was fine, and the business

Woodward, Lowrie, and the Union.
Never were the Democracy of the State more
active, determined, and confident of success
than they are now, and, unless the signs of the
times are entirely unreliable,,#ey, will not be
disappointed.
Renegades from Democracy—A Peep at
In these degenerate days, when the Aboli
tionists can crow over cheap purchases of mer
cenary wretches from the Democratic ranks,
and impose upon the unreflecting and those
- whose sources of , information are limited, by
parading their mongrel stock as full-blooded,
honest Democrats, who have joined their stand
ard from pure motives, it is well to raise the
veil and let in a little light. We hazard nothing
in asserting that,not a single intelligent Demo
crat has joined the Abolition party, and'now
gives his support to Curtin and Lincoln, who
has' not sold himself for a price, in money or
its equivalent. Their professions of sincerity
are the thinnest moonshine'; the, reasons they
give for the change—invariably sudden—are
PiPeflikeTwelliftirphlgCiinlei4l; which 'eitei
man of them-feels that he, deserves. Hardly a
single one of - thenew batch of converts in this
State was ever a man of note in the Democratic
party, or commanded, to any great degree, its
respect or confidence. Generally they were
looked upon as obstacles in the path of pro
gress, greedy seekers' after office, mere specu
lators and trafftoltere in . politics, :who held
their principles. loosely about them, ready to
be cast off wheneier a good bargain could
be made by an, exchange,
Another thingittrikes us-somewhat forcibly.
Most of the men who have recently apostatised
from the Dem:Maio party were noted fOr their
extreme vievrs—their radicalism—their strong
Southern, aspect., If we were asked to point
out the man who, more • than any ether in thet
whale range of our acquaintance, approximated
what miiht, in the North, be considered a se
cessionist and a rebel—a revolntionist and a
traitar—we should indicate Cal. Thomas O.
MacThiwell, whose heart seemed wholly wed

Lich stands upon a foundation of fanaticism,

as a man in the Democratic ranks whose con

FROM EUROPE
By the Eurepa with Liverpool dues to the
19th, we have the following:
GREAT BRITAIN
It Is rumored that the Confederate envoy e.t.
London has been withdrawn in consequence of
the meanness of the British Government.
- .
A letter from Richmond in the Confederate
organ, the index, speaks of the probability Cl
an early recall of the representatives of the
South from England on account of the attitude
of the British government. •
The London Star fears that it is the inten
tion of the French Government to speedily
recognize the Confederates. It adduces various
acts and demonstrations to justify the belief,
and cornea to the conclusion that we must 't) v
be prepared for French recognition before
long.
The London Herald, adverting to the ru
mored probable recall of Mr, Almon from Lon
don, says it is in consequence of the syste
matic rudeness with which he has been treated.
The Heeald hints that it has been through .
the suggestion of Mr. Adams that Mr. Mast%
has been excluded from official intercourse wits
the British Government.
The Paris correspondent of the Morning Pcst
says a new loan for the Confederates is con
templated.
The French Government has certainly not
thrown any difficulty in the way of the pirate
Florida. Capt. Maffit resigned the command
On account of ill-health. Lieut. Barney proba
bly takes command.
One of the reasons given for the decline in
the Paris Bourse is an apprehension by some
operators that the decision in the case of the
Florida, may lead to implement feelings be
tween France and the Federal Government.
The U. S. frigate Constellation arrived at
Gibraltar on the 11th instant.
The Paris Pays says the English journals
are mistaken in looking upon the note lately
published in the Aloniteur as a step towards
recognition—it was merely a recognition of
belligerent rights. If the Emperor's Govern
ment- believed itself bound to recognise the
Confederates and establish official relations at
all, it would do so openly and not by indirect
means.
The Rev. Mr. Stewart, late chaplain in the
rebel army, has been lecturing before the Sam
tern Club of Liverpool. He charged the New
England clergy with instigating the war, and
asserted that the war would 800 n end when
President . Lincoln loses the clerical support.—
He declared that the South had the means of
carrying on the war for years to come, but ne
vertheless was ready to lay down the sword,
and leave the questions at issue to the ballot.
The Opinione Nationale believes itself able to
state that the English Cabinet, fearing that
France may take possession of Mexico, is
strongly endeavoring to persuade the Emperor
of Austria to consent to the acceptance of the
Mexican throne by Maximillian. The same
paper says that a Mexican loan is spoken of,
to be effected in London as soon an the Arch
duke is officially proclaimed. The Emperor
also said that 8,000 Irishman would be enrolled
for service in the new Empire, These state , .
ments caused a material improvement in Mexi
can securities in London. '
The' Tillie" city article remarks that tlie em
ployment of Irish troops is calculated to pre
vent the United States from undertaking any
aggression upon the new monarchy.
The Russian reply to the English note is
published. It professes an ardent desire to
restore tranquillity in Poland. Discussions
could only end in establishing divergence of
views, and desires to assume'all the responsi
bilities, and hopes the principle of non-inter
vention will be maintained, which Russia had
constantly respected.
