Whit I* a Republican Form of Go?
The fourth section of the fourth arti?
cle of the Constitution of the Uuited
States provides that "the United States
shall guarantee to every State in this
Union a Bepublioan form of govern?
ment." In tho Hoaso of Representa?
tives, on tho first day of the re-assem?
bling of Congress, aftor the Christmas
holidays, Mr. Rogers, a member from
Arkansas, introduced a resolution recit?
ing various acts of outrage and oppres?
sion committed at the recent Congres?
sional election, and declaring that "no
Republican form of government exists
in that State, and that no legal opportu?
nity is allowed the peonle of that State
to maintain their rights." "Therefore,"
the rejolution goes on to direct, tbnt
"the Committee on the Judiciary be di?
rected to make a full inquiry into tho
state of - political government in tho
State of Arkansas, and into tho conduct
of the Governor and registrars, with
power to send for porsons and papers,
and to report at the earliest practicable
moment, if they find legislation necessa?
ry, a bill to secure to the people of that
Stato the exorcise of their rights." The
resolution was adopted.
The frequency with which this provi?
sion of the Federal Constitution has
been resorted to within the past few
years as a justification for any and every
species of interference on tho part of
Congress with the internal government
and domestic concerns of the several
States, has been repeatedly the subject
of comment. The Baltimore Sun em?
phatically declares that Congress ap?
pears to have proceeded upon tho as?
sumption that the "Republican govern?
ment" guaranteed by the Constitution is
the government of the Republican party,
and that whatever legislation was neces?
sary to secure and perpetuate the ascen?
dency of that party was within the scope
and protection of that instrument. As,
however, it is a bad rule which will not
work both ways, tho drift of Mr. Ro?
ger's resolution seems to be to admonish
tho political majority that the precedent
which they havo established may horeaf
tor be used with equal effect ngainst
them. His resolution is aimed, appa?
rently, at tho proscriptive and disfran?
chising features of tho present State
constitution of Arkansas, and at tho con?
duct of the Governor nud registrars at
the recent Congressional elections. The
speeoh which he delivered on Saturday
last was in answer to that portion of the
President's message which referred to
the expression of popular sentiment in
the South having been interfered with
and stifled by intimidation and outrage.
He wished to show that in Arkansas at
least the responsibility for such outrages
as were committed lay at tho door, not
of the opponents, but of the friends of
the Administration, and that it was the
voice of the opposition which had thus
been stifled. That tho framers of the
Constitution ?never intended that thoir
language in this partianlar section should
bear tho loose construction which has
been pat upon it by tho party in power
is a proposition too plain for argument.
When that Constitution was adopted,
Republican institutions were an experi?
ment. There was a considerable party
in this country who thought that the
government created would be found alto?
gether too weak. There were even to be
found some who preferred tho forms of
a limited and constitutional monarchy -
who thought the British constitution the
most perfect model for imitation, and
who wished to approximate to that model
by the creation of a lifo tenure in the
offices of Prosidontand Senator. It was
to guard against tho possibility of any
locai revolution which might result in
the establishment of a dictatorship or a
titled oligarchy in any of tho States, that
this section was incorporated into the
Constitution. Now, however, that a
different interpretation prevails, it would
be well for Congress to define, by a joint
resolution, at least, what shall be con?
sidered "a Republican form of govern?
ment." Adhesion to tho political doc?
trines of tho Republican party will, of
course, form an essential part of tho de?
finition. A declared preference for
some particular candidate for the Presi?
dency may hereafter be added. It is
true such a definition would bo liable to
undergo constant chango, unless it
should bo embodiod in tho form of an?
other amendment to tho Constitution;
but inasmuch as tho discovery has been
mudo that permanency and certainty fn
tho organic law is not desirable, and that
that constitution of government is best
which with easy flexibility adapts itself
to every ohango of circumstances and of
parties, this objection will probably bo
thought of trifling consequence.

MESSAGE OF THE GOVEUNOU OF NEW
JEUSEV.-Governor Randolph, of New
Jersey, in his annual message, relera to
the adoption of the suiTrage amendment
and tho liual settlement of a vexed ques?
tion, aud recommouds, inasmuch as the
colored people are necessarily accepted
as voters, a full recognition of ali their
rights nuder the laws. The Governor
deems tho uutural autagouisin of the
races beyond the reach of humau laws
to remedy; thinks no sub&tantiul politi
cel ad van tage is had, or likely to be had,
by the blacks, and position being de?
nied them by both political parties in
the North, tho race seems to have passed
from tho wrongs of slavery to the serf?
dom of party. He strongly urges nin
ue.sly on the part of tho Federal Govern?
ment to that lurgo, influential and
intelligent body of rueu now aliens, once
American citizens, and states his con?
viction to be, that tho result of the
existing general depression and dissatis?
faction witli the oonduct of public affairs,
will compel tho political power snccosd
iug hereafter to recognize the .urgent
demand for greater economy in tlue
administration of the affairs of Govern?
ment; the extinction of onerous and
illegal modes of taxation; reform in civil
administration, by which competency
and fidelity shall constitute the test aud
guarantee of economy; a revision of the
tariff laws, by which tho greatest pro?
gress towards tho principle of free trade
eau be held compatible with our ne?
cessities; and protesting against tho
enormous grnuts of lands in which the
States have so great residuary interest.
