wouldn't take the little ship because it was tm

hoped their families would never quarrel."
BEOWNLOW'S Militia Bill has passed tho Statt
Senate by a vote of thirty to twenty-three. Thc
Nashville Union and Dispatch says of its passage
in that body: "During tho debato, a Radical mem?

brief and brutal sentence. He said 'there had not
been blood enough shed.' With legislators whe
voa; under the stimulus of such passions, argu?
ment is fruitless, and comment upon the proceed
ing unnecessary. Should it become the law, th?
history of its execution will be a disgrace to tin
civilization of the age, and will furnish tales o
horror at which humanity will woep."
The New York Tribune says : "Alabama has jus

she had 964,296, of whom 435.132 were slaves. Ii
is evident that her black inhabitants are just aboui
as numerous as in 1860, while her whites are bu
20,000 fewer. We infer from this that the South?
ern States have generally nearly if not quite ai
many inhabitants now as in I860, and w?l have
more in 1870. The stories that the blacks arc
"dying out" seem to be utterly baseless. A gooc
many of them bavo migrated northward or beei
taken to Texas; but they will number at least foul
millior n 1870."

A Washington lotter to the Baltimore Gazette
says CHAS. O'CONOB and J. G. SHEA, Esqs., coun?

GREELEY is also boto. It is further known that
Mr. GREELEY had an interview with the President
yesterday, and interviews with Mr. DAVIS" counsel
this morning. From these facts tho quid nuncs
have conjectured that the 8tate prisoner at Fort?
ress Monroe is about either to be released on par?
ole or bail, or that his case is on the eve of being
disposed of in Borne way; and it must bo confessed
that the facts warrant a fair inference that this

The Philadelphia Age, ot Tuesday, says : "About
once in three months some of our colored citizens,
instigated by men of the Saxon race, become ob?
streperous in re- ere .co to the rules adopted by the
car Unes prohibiting their riding inside the cars,
and they insist on riding in the cars in spite of all
opposition. Last evening this interesting per?
formance was again enacted on a car of tho Fifth
and Sixth streets line, at Fifth and Pine streets.
Three colored mon got on the car and took seats
inside. Upon being informed by the conductor
that they were not allowed there, they insisted that
they would stay. Tho car was consequently taken
off the track and put on a snow bank. The colored
men sat quite composedly inside tho car, and
when we left they expressed a determination to
stay all night Probably this is a new way of ob
J*ining lodgings for nothing."

At a special mooting of tho Board of Trustoos j
of tho University of South Carolina, on tho 23d

Professor of Law, ondDrs. JULIAN J. CHISOLM and

But why havo a Medical School in tho University!
There is certainly no need for it. There is in this
city a Medical College of over forty years' stand?
ing, one of tho best schools in the land, that hat
sent forth its alumni by thousands. Why cannot
this institution continuo to supply tho means of n
medical education to the young men of this ano
adjoining States, who may wish to devote them?
selves to this piofession? Certainly the facilities
are far superior in our seaport city, whore wo have
suitable hospi.als, a most ample faculty, an excel?
lent Medical Library, and opportunities for clini?
cal instruction. Wc cannot, therefore, see thc
wisdom of establishing a rival institution in Co?
lumbia, which can never prosper, though it may
perhaps, draw a few students from our College ir
thia city. Wc aro not without hope, however, thal
this project may yet be abandoned.
AS OTHERS SEE US.
For nearly a century the friends of free institu
tious everywhere have been pointing with prid<
to tho United States of America for a splenetic
realization of the great problem of a pur<
democracy. We furnished Bepublicans all over th<
world, with a standing first-class illustration ii
the science of government. And so completo hac
boon our success, that, the mere statement of th<
fact carried conviction to every mind. Foreigi
statesmen were woit to moko the tour of tho Uni?
ted States, to soe for themselves the actual work
icg of our Utopian institutions. VON RACMEB, BJ
TOQUBVILLE, and others, philosophical thinkors
and public men of distinction, spent years here foi
this purpose, and went away gratified. They hav<
iofi a record of their impressions, stating theil
conviction, that ours was a model government pro
vided tho Constitution was properly respected, ant
its provisions duly oxecutcd. They possessed suffi?
cient sagacity to see that this could only be dono
if the people retained that modicum of virtue tho}
were thought to possess at the time the govern
wau ?HtntKL tverv pnld?f? WY-it?.r, freu fr.Jil
bias, made thc same observation, viz : that upon
this do< ended the success or failuro of the greai
problem of democracy.
So invulnerable were wo considered in our govern?
ment, that foreign authors,who visited us from tim?
to time, and wero manifestly prejudiced against
us,-contented themselves with ridiculing oui
manners; decrying our literature; belittling oui
great men; laughing at our hypeibolical eloquence,
and patting on a gcineral patronizing air. Bul
tliese sallies and slanders of HALL, MAKYATT,
DIOHENS, Mrs. TBOLLOPE, HABBIKT MARTINEAT?,
and tho rest of them, could not injure us; and.
knowing them to be in a great measure unjnst,
tho Amorican people became moro and more
indifferent to European criticism.
The opponents of popular institutions hail our
present political imbroglio with great delight.
They now at last see a fulfilment of their live-long
prophecies. The Constitution so much vaunted
is hoing deliberately set aside. Irresponsible pow?
er rules the day, caring nothing for tho rights ol
tho minority. But nothing has awakened such
wide-spread interest, such a universal dread, we
may say, as the proposed impeachment of the
President. And well may the world he aghast at
this gigantic political iniquity. United States
bonis and securities, "five-twenties," tte., are
largely hold in Europe; and those old financiers in
Frankfort, Paris, London and Vienna, know from
long experience that impeachment means revolu?
tion, civil war, and universal bankruptcy. Hence
The causes that led to our war were also hut lit?
tle understood hy the generality of European
writers; and this was doubtless due to a general
belief that the gTeat questions that agitated thii
country, and divided political parties, were of a
purely local choracter,-mero petty squabbling;
and before they were aware of the existence ol
any real grievance or difficulty, they heard the dis?
tant cannon's echoing roar. The war, from begin?
ning to end, was a puzzle to them. There con
now bi little doubt that France, and perhaps Eng?
land, also, would have recognized the late Confed?
erate States, had they been cognizant of the
true position of affairs. The magnitude of thc
struggle, however, excited universal attention, and
tho events that have transpired sinco the war, as
well as those now in progress, are being watched

But there are others concerned and alarmed at
the future before us, whose motives are of a lese
mercenary character. Tho lover of liberty, the
frioLd of mankind, cannot look on with indifference
at tho deliberate destruction of the magnifi?
cent tomple of American liberty. The London
Times, for January 12, has a very able article
on this subject, of which the following ia tho con?
"Tho Senate and the House of Repreaent?t?ves
aro now united in opposition to the President; but
they reprosont different principles, which in?y
horeafter come into collision. Tho Senate ' has
hitherto been the more powerful body, both in
itself and in popular estimation. Thia was inevi?
table so long as the Control Government was
itsolfweak, aa the Senate ia the Repressntative
and guardian of separate State righta. But the fu?
sion of the North into one community which was
offoited in the face of common dangers, in
atrengthening the Government at Washington
as a whole, has strengthened the House ot Repre
sentitives to an especial degree. Its character ia
more distinctly national, and it necessarily repre?
sents, with greater fidelity than the Senate, the fluc?
tuations of popular opinion. It is not difEcult to
foresee which way tho viciory must incline should
a struggle hereafter arise between the two sec?
tions of Congress. It would seem that the
natural consequence of the change through which
tho Union is passing is an increase of the power
of the moro popular body of the Legislature until
it becomes supreme. This result may or may not
be in itself desirable, but it would be a mistake to
argue that it must be so from the analogy of onr
own Constitution. The electoral machine of the
union differs so much from our own that it is
scarcely possible tho House of Representatives can
ever fill the place of the House of Commons, and
it is plain that the absence of the Federal Minis?
ters from tho House of Representatives is in itself
the cause of a radical difference between tho two
We need not, howevor, dwell upon the future-it
is sufficient to note tho phase through which the
American Constitution appears to be passing the
danger that the artificial balanco of powers,' the
eheoks upon impulsive legislation, the independ?
ence of the Executivo Government contemplated
by the founders of tho Republic will all bo swept
