ine phrase which forms the caption of this article
Will illustrate our meaning.
Politicians talk fluently about "Squatter Sover
eignty, accusing this man or that man of being in
tavor of "Squatter Sovereignty," and therefore
wrong and not to be trusted.
" Nnat 'Squatter Sovereignty?'" is a question
that had we asked of us a few days ago by quite an
intelligent person, who had failed to get the run of
the thing. Wc will endeavor to explain as clearly
as we can what we suppose people mean when thev
talk about " Squatter Sovereignty." Whether the
designation is a correct one or not is more than we
intend now to discus;:.
We presume that most people know that a large
portion of the territory of the United States lies be
yond the limits of any organized State, ami that, of
course, the settlers there must depend upon the
Constitution and laws of the Union for government
and protection. Most of these outlaying settlers are
"squatters," having probably gone in advance of
(he land survey and the land-offitM, and "squatter"
upon the lands they occupy their occupation giv
ing them a " pre-emption," or pre-emptive right
that is, the first chance to purchase,- in preference
to all others.
' When, in any section these settlers become suffi
ciently numerous to require a more definite organi
zation, it is usual to pass a bill giving them a terri
torial government, such government vesting in the
actual settlers certain powers arc far from being nec
essary for the regulation of their own local affairs,
but these powers are far from sovereign, since the
executive and judicial departments are filled by ap
pointment of the Federal Executive. These territo
rial governments are erected for the protection of
the persons and property of citizens of any and all
the States of the Union coming to settle on the pub
lic domain not certainly for the purpose of render
ing either more precarious. The principle has been
adpoted and avowed that the people of any of these
territories, when having the requisite population to
form a State, may apply for admission into the
Union, with or without slavery, as a majority of the
actual residents may determine.
It is contended by the great body of the Demo
crats that the power of deciding this question or
questions of a similar character, can only be exercis
ed by a State or as a preliminary to applying for ad
mission as a State, and that this admission alone can
gtve"vaiidity to the State Constitution.
By some persons, Judge Douglas among the rest,
it is contended that the settlers when organized by
the grant to them of a territorial government, may at
any time during their territorial non age, either by
unfriendly legislation, or the neglect of necessary
protection, decide this question in advance of the
formation of a State Constitution, thus claiming for
amere territory a sovereignty which belongs only
to a State. This claim of sovereignty for the first
handful of settleis or squatters on the public domain,
is what has been rather derisively styled " Squatter
Sovereignty." Wil. Journal.
Champagne Wise. The New York Courier and
Enquirer has a very curious article in relation to
champagne wine. In the paragraph in question,
the people of the United States are represented to
be the largest consumers of champagne in the
world, and the consumption per annum is estima
ted to be one mill.on baskets, ine wnoie cnam
pagnc district is about twenty thousand acres, and
the amount of wine manufactured for exportation
is ten million bottles, or about eight hundred thou
sand baskets. Of this, Russia consumes one hun
dred and sixty thousand; Great Britain and her
possessions one hundred and sixty-five thousand;
France one hundred and sixty-two thousand; Ger
many one hundred and forty -six thousand; and the
United States two hundred and twenty thousand.
The Custom House in New-York, through which
passes a large amount of the champagne imported
into this country, reports only one hundred and
seventy-five thousand and twenty-eight baskets per
annum. Seven hundred and eighty thousand bas
kets therefore, of the wine drank in this country
for imported champagne, is counterfeit an amount
equal to the whole supply of the champagne dis
trict for the world We may add, that in New Eng
land and New Jersey, there are many very productive
so-called " vineyards," though to the common eye
the trees look like apple trees, and the " vineyards"
like orchards. Is it not possible that these planta
tions are the producing resources of the champagne
consumed in this country, over and above the
amount of that wine imported through the Custom
A friend, who is well informed in matters of this
kind, informs us that the French ball, as described
below, is almost identical with ono which was fired
and offered to our Government by an officer of the
army, as far back as 1854. At that time attention
had not been awakened to the importance of rifled
artillery, as the French and English had done no
thing with it, and it was doubted whether the rifle
principle could be successfully applied to balls of
" These guns are bronze four-pounders. lighter
than the other field pieces. They have six deep
erooves, and have a chamber like the Delvigne rifle,
or the old pattern howitzer. The projectile rests
aciinst the junction of the bore and the chambers,
if is made ot cast iron, cylinder-conoidal in shape,
similar to the infantry musket-ball, and is hollow at
its base or rear enL The cylindrical part of the
ball is bored and tapped in six plices, to correspond
with the six grooves of the gun, and short tin plugs
are inserted into these holes. These plugs are forced
out into the grooves by the pressure of the gas, and
give the ball the rotary motion and accuracy of the
" The projectile is sometimes made hollow, and
filled with musket balls, and is exploded, at the de
sired distance, by means of. a fuze which- i cut at
the proper point, according to the time "required for
the explosion. A moveable sight is attached to the
mbt side of the gun. The tiring is accurate to
2,000 yards, and the extreme range is said to be 2
miles." K T. Courier.

was received three days since at Westchester, Penn

and that he " made a brief but eloquent speech" in
