In the Senate yesterday the Bill to
-establist Districts Courts was again
taken and passed without opposition,
after being amended. It was an
nounced in the course of the discus-'
sion upon it, that there was the high
est authorit'y for stating that if the
General - \ssembly 1 assed thip Bill,
the Provost Courts would be abolish
.ed throughout the Ftate' within two
weeks after these Courts shall go into
operation. Wonder if 'tis so ?
All the measures before the House
smacking of Stay Law prifciple were
yesterday laid on the table. 141- is
.likely that to-day the Bill fromi the
Senate, suspending action in certain
cases before the Courts, will ,come up
beforp the House.
It is an evil omon that so many Leg
islators are counselling a repudiation
of the highest Judiciary in the State,'
and trying by subterfuges to evade
the letter of a Stay Law while they
enact a law of that kind in spirit and
in fact. We have for months been
charging the Federal Legislative de
partment with gross violations of -their
Constitution, and now we Ignore our
e own. 4 .
,What is the country coming to 1.
.Wh.ile the elements of discord, aye,
of civil war, are gaining in strength
every day in the North, apples of dis
cord are lavishly -strewn in- our midst.
In Missouri, what iis the exact state
of political disturbance ? Gather it
t'rom the appeals, not of Radical jour
nals, but of the Conservative ones.
"Get' say these journals to their par
ty-"yot caps and guns and amitni
tion, and be ready for 'the conflict."
To reny mitld it is a foregona concli
sion 'that such a conflict will take
,place North. See 'the declarations of
the New York .UeaW, a paper whicki
sue of Vriday last, it declare's that the
success of the Radicals in Maine is but
the ground-swell that will sweei the
North ; and it adds, which Is preg
nantly significant, "we bow to the de
oision of -the mighty North." ' .
We then of the Soith should preserve
a calm and united body, not that we
can do anything for the benefit of our
friends in the so-called loyal States,
but that we may not aggrivate the
evils incident to our present political
Atatus, by admitting and cherishing
domestic disturbing elements.
Those two savage wild beasts, des
?otic power and ddmocratio ambition,
as Alison denodlinates. them, arQ ram.
pant now, they are broken' loose from
the confines of conservatism, and are
seeking whatever they may devour.
The womb of the future is filled with
horrors for this country before which
the bloody record of.the French Reign
of Terror may turn pale.
As' for my longer hope of a return to
first principles on the part of the poo
ple of the United States, there is not
a particle of ground for it. A bloody
civil commotion is now inevitable, and
when its howls an4 shrieks are passed,
will arise a repetition of the scenes of
the last days of Bome and of the vari
ous experiments by France to estab
lish government three-quarters of a
century ago. I pity the sanguine
spirit than can look at the facts now
staring us in the f4ce, and say that all
this is the wail of an alarmist. He
ill be most wofully disappointed.
