Fearful Stride towards Despotism.
On tho Otb April, tho Honsoof Representatives
of the United States pasted the Civil Rights Bill
over the veto of the President, by a voto of one
hundred ar.d twenty two to forty-one. Thc Sen
lato had passed it previously by a voto of thirty
three to Efteon. It thus becomes a law of the
and. W* do not know what the practical work
ings of this Bill will be; but if it works as its
framers intended il should, then the Southern
peoplo have before them oppression and tyranny
?nd humiliation ; in short, chains and slavery.
Aud all this at tho hiu.dsof thc unscrupulous and
contemptible tools of legislative usurpation/
Tho Civil Rights Bill abolishes, virlually, all
State judicature. Ail i/'encep under, and causes
affecting persons protected by this ac>, are cogni
x.iblo exchtKively by Federal-Courts. The act
covers almost ovory civil traneaction of socioty,
not to say social, moral and political relations.
There cannot therefore bc any assignablo limit to
offencos of this net. Thc State Courts as such
are thus almost entirely abolished, for though
they might continue to act, they would ba virtu
ally Federal Courts, becauso enjoying no powers
but what had been .conceded thor,; by tho F?deral
The Civil Rights Bili, though it prohibits all*
recognition of distinction of raes or color, still
makes ii most palpable distinction iu favor of tho
blacks; thus establishing negro superiority. It
curries Federal interference into privnto affairs
whero the wor?t local and dopoclj^ laws never
intrude. The Southern people could hardly live
and inovo r.nd have their being, from day to day,
without being guilty of some one or other of thc
ponai ofj'.'ucos of this Bili.
It authorizes tho President to appoint Bpie? and
informers (t) ? meanest class that disgrace hu

"oflicors'' whou ho j:,ny '?specially empower."
Ile may put one on every s treet cornor ann at
every mile p.'St in the Union, without transcend
ing tiic letter of ?his ln.w. It authorizes tho Fod
crcl Courts lo multiply their oom missioners with
out liuiit, and empowers each ono of these to ap
point KB many " suitable persons" (detectives) as
th?ry chooso in every county, to mako arrests, and
pr?vidos a oompanpntjon for both, so liboral os
to oxposo them to Irresistible temptation to pp
pross. Even thtso duspicablo hirelings have the
powar to call thc army to their aid. . One of these
could arrest the '?ovcrtior of a Sovereign State,
and the County or Town Conmistiontrs of thc
