Everything for the Country.
A favorite motto in this country
from its earliest days has boon "prin.
ciples, not men." Yet no country has
exhibited manworship in a greater do
groo. There has been a proneness to
following after men and clinging to
cliques and superannuated public
charactors that had lived through an
ago of wonderful progress, with which,
in spirit and policy, they wore utterly
unable to keep pace. Having be
como dead-weights-only acting as
obstructors of improvement - they
should have been shaken off by the
vigorous and activo spirit of the con
stituent body. But this has not been
done, and the growth and prosperity
of the ecuntry have been consequently
The present period requires more
than ever that this devotion to men,
and that kindred sentiment of respect
for old notions in practical politics,
should give way to a policy better
suited to the great change that has

rights has been practicaly annihila.
tod. The rights of the States are un
sustained by remedies. They are
subordinated to the Federal power.
As long as a State so administers its
local affairs as to avoid a confict with
the Federal Governmont it will be
permitted to go on : but the moment
t bero is a conflict, the State goes to
t wall. Then the States are, in
dd, (as Mr. Lincoln said, and Pat
rio: Henry said before he did), no
more to the Union than counties are
to the States.
NVw, we have indeed the essence of
a Consolidated Government. We
have the imperial ago in its inchoate
state. It beging now that career of
grandeur and force which must dis
play itself in great works in military
and naval power, and that general
and supreme rulo which sulordinates
the sub-divisions of the national ter
ritory to the national authority.
- So groat a change demands a thor.
ough revolution in the representative
body. Men who reognize the new
order, and who are so moulded as to
adapt themselves to tho now ener

born of the newly-establishmed system

A Japanese Exeoution.
While we had been making our. tour
of inspection, the doomed culprit had
been unlashed and dismounted from iii
horse at the gate. But when set oh hil
feet he was unable to stand, owing t<
weakness and the constrained and poin
ful pouition in which lie had been kepi
so long, and his guards were obliged t<
carry him into the precinets ;f the pris

provided, of which he ate heartily nnd
with evident enjoyment. A fIter a full
half hour it was intimated to him tha
his presence was expected. WirN the

pinioned behmnd his back; but before th<
cloth was tied over his eyes he request

none of whom could be seen from th

to his guards that lie was ready, ani
