We hire receired the Jiauary numbs?

The letter f rona Thon.as Jefferson to
Jadge William Johnston is qnite in
> teresting in view of tv*c pretent course
of the Republican p*rty Judge John ton
was t Jndge oi the Court of
Common Pleas of South Carolina and
was a Justice of the United States
The imperialism of the Republican
party and its centralizing policy art
nothing new to that party. In this!
? letter written in 182$ Thomas Jefferson
says: "Our opponents are far ahead of
us in preparations for placing their!
cause favorably before posterity. * * *
* The fact is that, at the formation of
our government, many had formed
their political opinions on European
writings and practices, believing the
experience of old countries, and eape*
eially of England, abusive as it was,
to be a safer guide than mere theory.
In the Con* nation which
formed our government, they endeavored
to draw the cords of power as
tight as they could obtain them, to lessen
the dependence of the general
fanctionaires on their constituents, to
subject to them those of the States, to
weaken their means of maintaining
~ - ? iLA
fiie steady equinorinni wmcu
majority of tbe conv#ntion had deemed
salutory for both branches, general
and load. * * * The cherishment
of people then was oar principle,
the fear and distrust of them that of
the other parCy."
This has been the history of the
Bepnblican party. Mr. Jefferson eon*
eludes that t&e original objects of the
federalists (now Republicans) were
(1) <4to warp our gorernineut more to
the form and principles of monarchy,
and (S) to weaken the barriers of the
State governments as co-ordinate
These two things have been accom?
plished to a great extent, and the
effort to further f ulfil the mission and
object of the party is madiiested in
the policy of the party with reference
to our new possessions. The destruction
of "the barriers of i&e State governments
as co-ordinate powers" was
well nigh accomplished by brute lorce
from 1860-1865. Eacon raged at erery
tarn, the Republican aattr has been
.. sore and more follow?!^ European
Jeas. It is well row and then to
tara to the old patriots for eonnsel
and ivdvice in present emergencies,
aad ic is rare that we find that they
have not predicted present troubles
aid pointed bat their eauiea.
