]t needs no argument to show that the
Kupreiue < urt - t the United States has
jdegene rated into a mere partisan and sec
tional ins' r; ;nent. The lamcwable tact
is palpable and undisguised. Its recent
outrage upon public decency and pro
priety, in forcing upon the country a se
ries of opinions upon the subject of Sla
very, not rcq iired by the case under con- j
sideration. nd uttered for the sole pnr
j.ue of giving a ccuaiu sacreduess to the
greatest partisan outrage ever committed
by Cungress—the annulment ol the Sla
very prohibition in the Territories; shows
the extent to which that court has degen-j
.crateJ, and the ut;ernexs of its prosiuu-l
tion to the uos of the Slavery-extending
politicians. Is there uo remedy lor tuL
debasement of the Supreme Court?
lias the countrv no protection lurainst
i' , l , . , !
tins mw strange process, by which
the politicians may get their most repul
uve heresies tea Wormed into law ? hi ust
jjl the Executive and Judicial precedents
of the past b-. ruthlessly denied and tram
pled down, whenever a reckless political
gambler shall choose to coin some new i
Y .
theory in support of slavery, which he |
pan sell to the South fqjr a consideration. 1
Thy Sgpreme Court is looked upon as j
something fixed and immovable—entirely '
beyond the reach of the people, and
clothed with an authority nearly or quite!
absolute and despotic. Indeed, there arc:
not wanting, among those who claim the
panic of Democrats, some who consider it
a sort, of treason, or something worse, to
doubt thu infallibility of the grave gen
tlemen who occupy the Supreme Bench,
or to hint at the possibility that they have
uttered a mistaken opinion, or yielded to
a corrupt inlhieuce. But the whole his
tory of the Judiciary, in this and other
countries, shows that judges are put weak
and erring men, often committing the 1
saddest mistakes, and, alas! how often;
perverting their - icred o"i -e to the sup
port of the wrong cause, when backed by
power and wealth, against t. Ie right which
has only its own righteousness to sustain
it. ' ' :
We said the Supreme Court is sectional.
Jt is not only so iu its general aim and
{he spirit of the majority of the julges ;
it is sectional in its construction. This
is seen at a glance by the following table;
of the judicial districts:
1. Maine, New liampsliire, M issa
ciiusetts, and Uhodt* l-laiul . 2,0-13,204 |
2. Vermont, Connecticut, and New
York . . . . 3,782

souri . . . . 2.110.174
9. Mississippi, and Arkansas . 457.907
Five circuits. Total free pop. . 6,044.454
Here Kentucky is twice included. If
wo deduct her population from one cir
cuit, we shafl see that five Southern
judges represent but people,
while the four Northern judges represent
i 2,885.000. Under a fair apportionment,
the North would have six of the nine
judges, and the South but three.
We have reason to believe that the
subject of a just and fair re-organization
of the Supreme < 'ourt will bo brought be
fore the next Congress, and v ill become
a topic of the most serious and earnest
discussion. Tt is too much to hope from
a Congress constituted as that will be,
Vf 7
that the measure will succeed. But it
will be presented in such form that the
pleasure will succeed. But it will be
presented in such form that the whole
country will see its intrinsic justico and
propriety, and the decision against it will
be so evidently based on sheer sectional
and party grounds as to demonstrate how
entirely the Supreme Court is relied upon
and used as a political machine. Some
thing will thus be gained in the presenta :
{.ion of the true bearings of the question
to tlpe people, and in the preparation of
{lie public mind fop the change. If we
can not secure a Supreme Court immeas
urably above the base partisan uses to
which rbe present court degrades itself,
then it were better that the whole thing
should be rooted up, and a now court or
gaiU' stand above the reach
of such influences.

We publish the above item of uews, as
evidence of the consistency of the Hunk
or Democracy on the Banking question.
The leaders of that party are always
talking against the Banks, and yet they
are the most active in starting one when
ever there is a dollar to be made by the
1 operation and mote than that, they have
made the system of Banking in this
state, the most favorable to Banks of any
of tho surrounding statos, and therefor a
the most unfavorable to the people.
The people Jersey Shore are nearly
equally divided in Politics, and yet
when a bank is to be startvdf three-fourths
of its managers are hunker democrats. We
presume the same rule will hold good
throughout the state. Hence the Banks
had no trouble in getting just such Leg
islation at the extra session as tl.ey de
sired, although one branch of that body
profess/ i/ to be anti-Bank. \v hat ilun
-1 ker democracy u cm the Bank question,
it is on every other —just what will sc
' cure the greatest amount of spoils.
Ziaiisa* to he a Free State.
Already the good effects of the late
election iu Kansas are being manifested.
The Chicago Timeti has the credit of re
ueciing the sentiments of Senator Doug
! Ifts, tl)e most influential of the Buchanan
' supporters in the Free States. And thus
the Times speaks of the late election and
the Constitutional Convention:
"What that convention will do, or what
' it will not do, we have not the means of
knowing. But we know that any attempt
. to force a pro-slavery constitution upon
| the people without the opportunity of vot
ing it down at the polls, will be regarded,
after the recent expression of sentiment,
1 as so decidedly unjust, oppressive and un
■ worthy of a free people, that the people
of the United States will not sanction it.
it would add thousands to the vote of the
, Republican party in every State of the
Union, and give to that organization what
. it has never had yet —a show of justice
and truth. To the democratic members
of that convention, the course is plain. —
j The people have decided in favor of a
Free State —though they have not vmcd
|iu the naked issue of "Free fctate" or
'hSlave State," they have voted practical
ly it} fayor of a Free State. Two-thirds
•of the democratic party in Kansas have
1 voted with the "free-state" party at the
>, recent election, in order to make the pop
. uiar decision more emphatic. As Kau
r j sas must be a free state, even those per
sons iu the territory who are known as
pro-slavery men must recognise iu the
- late election a decision which must not
be slighted nor put at defiance. To that
. expression of the popular will there should
be u graceful, if nut a cheerful submis
sion. Kansas is to be a free state ! That
fact l}cing ascertained, let the convention
- frame a constitution to suit her best in
* terosts upon all other questions, and let
the prohibition of sloven/ be put into it,
I < lair/i/, and icithmit quibble,plain It/ with
out disjuise, ej/tl icitty, broadly and firm
ly. Let the eonventioujhen submit that
, constitution to the people. Ifjtbeadopt
/ ed, Kansas will come into tho Union at
the next session, and the Republican par
ty will expire fur waut of sustenance."
t These are sensible views, and if they
- in | been generally entertained for the
; past two years, by the party to which the
j belongs, there never would haveji
been any trouble in Kansas. But though 1
Lite iu adopting them, we hail them us;;
| an evidence of the triumph of Freedom •
i in Kansas, the niost important political i
! triumph ever achieved on this Continent.

TJie Spirit ofthe S!a\c rower.
Some months ago, a Col Netherland.
1 member of a Presbyterian Church in Ten
nessee, caused a colored man, which he ,
claims as his property, to IK- SO inhuman- •
!v llctrgcd, as to arouse the indignation
of public sentiment of even aT'lav-e Slate.
The facts coming to the knowledge of tho
the Rev. Samuel Sawyer, pastor of the
church to which Col, Motherland belongs
ed, he advised Mr. N. to appear before
ihe Senior of the Church and satisfy that
b'.Jv of his innocence. li>:te:CN>f doing
so christian an act, this genuine speci
'men of American di.spoti-i.q turned on'
the minister for his lntcvleregsjm and
drove him from the pulpit he haa us-a
pastor occupied for many years. The
following extracts from Mr. Fawyor s sec
ond letter to the public, will show how
the Slave holders treat a minister of the
Gospel, who will not keep silence as to
their cruel treatment of Slave?.
"Furious threats were made by the
Netherland party after iny "Circular" was
published, such as commitment to th>.
Penitentiary under the stat
utes of ISJS, and personal violence ; bti%
"none of these things moved me, as I
had determined neither to run away nor;
to be driven away from the line of duty.
The nouro-trader, Mr. Blevins, assaulted
me in a store at Rogers vi lie with a heavy
yard.tick, but Kider Johnston interposed,
and, as some one observed, "eoul l have
thrashed the ground with him" and
would have done it if lie had continued
the assault. Disappointed in the result of
this attempt at intimidation, Mr. Moth
erland s nephew undertook a oowhiding.
Remonstrances were in vain, lie struck
at me twice with the cowhide, and then
in self-defence I choked him some time
against the counter, which moderated hi.-,
zeal so that he abandoned the idea. Mr.
Netherlands brother-in-law went M art
it was said, as to remark that lie "could
stand by and see me garroted on the
streets of Rogersville," uud all because 1
had called the attention of the Church to
1 tiie offences in which Col, N. was
> eated, but which, to my utter ustonish
- ment, they, as a family, were disposed t<;
justify. The family, in connection with
the negro-traders and a few others, in all j
about one-tenth the members of the Cmtrch,
determined that I should not preach my
, farewell sermon in our Church, and they
. arbitrarily locked the Church door against
the Sunday School, and a part of the KI
; ders, and a majority of the Church-raem
bers and congregation who disapproved
of such proceedings.
: "And yet Mr. Netherland would have
the public believe that he lias through
out these rumoured cruelties and Church
disturbances acted the part of a moderate,
' a reasonable and a Christian man. —
Throughout his statement the reader, it
i lie can wade through it miserable gram
, mar and wretched composition, will per
ceive that lie has kind and gracious words
and gentlemanly address for the negro
trader. but the absence of all these when
speaking of a minister of the Gospel."
Such is the legitimate fruit of Slavery
wherever it may be found. Its wholcg
( power and spirit is brutality, injustice
, and barbarity. Hence the murders, frauds
and sacking of Towns, which have mark
ed the track of the Slave Power in Kan
, sas. In view of such facts as this Netlr
ian d affair, which are of frequent occur
rence wherever Slavery exists, is it not
' incredible, that jrrt/jrssirtg Christians at
the North will still persist in giving the
! right hand of fellowship to the Slave huld
; ore, and thus encourage them to continue
in their sin of Slave whipping, breeding,
and all the villainies connected with the
system, If Northern Church members
. would entirely withdraw their support of
. Slavery, the monster iniquity would sick
- en and die at once. But instead of this,
there is scarcely a Church iu all the North
' but what contains leading members who
t have "kind and gracious words and gen
t tlemanly address" for the slave holder,
1 "but the absence of all these when speak
ing of (an anti-slavery) minister of the
( Gospel." Some such will go so far in
. their devotion to Slavery, as to accuse
t their Presiding Ulder with being bribed
. to preach anti-slavery, and should the
minister in charge undertake to call tho
, offending member to an account, ten to
. one, if he does not fare in kind with the
t Rev. Samuel Sawyer of Tennessee.

Tiiie re-election of Governor Chase, of I
Ohm, we believe is no longer doubtful.'
His majority is likely to exceed a thou
sand. In Hamilt >n county his vote ex
ceeds that given for Fremont last year,
and doubles the vote he ree ived there ;
two years ago. The result is a gratify
ing one in every point of view. It is the
. .
most complete political victory that the
Governor has achieved. His previous
successes, numerous as they have been,
were obtained partly through the divis
ion of his opponents, lie was elected to
the l ulled States Senate by a minority ;
and when he first ran for Governor, had
the opposition bicn united, he would
hftve been defeated by ab >ut ten thou
sand votes. In the lute election the op
position vvefe united; the vote of the
Americans wufcAoo inconsiderable to be
chronicled by the Ohio .Dress, their mer
ges in the administration party having
become absolute; so that the vote just
given was a fair test of the opposition
strength of the state.
In the tw° years of his gubernatorial
administration Mr. Chase has built up
Hie Republican party from a small plu
rality to a majority, and had placed the
future administration of its chairs upon
a firm basis. lie has purified it of its
secret foes as well as of its transient and
unreliable allies, and has consolidated all
the friends of freedom and economy into
a compact political organization. 'llns
is the fruit of wise statesmanship; it is
ripened confidence which his good sense,
probity and forcast have inspired. No
one who looks at his administration with
out prejudice, any longer doubts that,
like Saiil in Israel, he is superior by
head and shoulders to any Governor that
Ohio ever had before him. Governor
Chase is one of the few men now in pub
lic life, who has alway been taithfui to
his convictions, and whom no immediate
or prospective political advantage has se
duced into improper dalliance.
The Cincinnati (Jazcttc thinks that
the rest of the Republican State ticket is.
elected, with the exception of Blickens
d.-rfer, but for whose nomination the
. triumph of the Republicans would have
been more unqualified. It attributes
the Governor's large vote in Hamilton
i county to the fact, that Bliekensderfcr
. was repudiated by the Republicans.—
