Mayor Wood on the Secessjn of
Mayor Wood's message to the New York
City Council is published. He assetrs that the
political connection between the city and
State has been used by the latter to the in
jury of the former. He thus concludes:
How we shall rid ourselves of this odious,
and oppressive connection, it is not for me to
determine. It is certain that a dissolution
cannot be peacefully accomplished, except by
the consent of the Legislature itself. Wheth
er this can bo obtained or not, is, in my judg
ment, not doubtful. Deriving so much ad
vantage from its power over this city, it is
not probable that a partisan majority will
consent to a separation-and the resort to
force by vi lence and revolution must not be
thought of for an instant. We have been
distinguished as an orderly and law-abiding
people. Let us do nothing to forfeit this
character, or to add to the present distracted
condition of public affairs.
And no doubt can be said in favor of the
justice and policy of a separation. It may
be said that secession or revolution in any of
the United States be a subversion of all Fed
eral authority, aud, so far as the Central Gov
ernment is concerned, the resolving of the
connunity into its original elements-that
if part of the States, form new combinations
and governments, other States may do the
same. California and her sisters of the Paci
fic wilt no doubt, set up an independent Re
public, and husband their own rich mineral
resources. The western St ates, equally rich
in cerels and other agricultural products, will
probably do the same.
Then, it may be said, why should not New
York City, instead of supporting, by lbw on
tributions in revenue, two-thirds ti
of the United States, become also te
dependent ? As a free city, with b -
