Tuesday Morning, May 2. 1871. :
Tba Lending Iliac Bcforo tho Country.
Taming attention for the present from
mattera of local intorest, and looking to
the questions that nffeot the whole coun?
try in its great present and yet greater
futuro, the question may well arise, what
now is tho main. issue before the people?
In our judgment, it is not tho negro.
Nor in it the recent amendments to tho
Constitution. We regard the statue of
the colored man settled, and we hold that
the legislation connected with the new
amendments to the Constitution has the
force of law. Wise or unwise, constitu?
tional or the reverse, tho matters therein
involved have passed into the domain of
accomplished facts, to bo taken there?
from only by the same power that put
tbem in. What, then, is tho trim issue
before the country? Upon what pivot
shall tho.next general canvass turn? We
think that the Democratic- address clearly
pointed this out. The same issue of
doctrine divides the two groat parties of
tho country now us formerly. It is re?
served rights against rights delegated.
It is local sovereignty agniust centralized
Short of secession and nullification,
there is an important, a vital mass of
State rights, which must ho kept intact,
or oar form of government must provo
a miserable failure. In thia country two
great principles are undergoing trial
are passing through an eveulful ordeal.
The one is UNTVERSAII SUFFRAGE, and this
will fail, unless linked with proportional
representation. The other is SELF-GOVERN?
MENT in general, and this wiii fail unless
tho rights pt the States are left intact
and local role not swallowed up in the
vortex of consolidation. And it may be
said that the larger the territorial limits
of the oountry, and tho more numerous
the States, the more important does it
become that the exclusivo powers possess?
ed by the States be not exercised by the
General Government. Nor is it the
Democratic mind of the country alone
that appreciates the importance of this
issue. The strides recently mado by
Congress from a constitutional to an
absoluto form of government, have ex?
cited the apprehensions of many of the
wisc and tbongbtful men of the 'Republi?
can party. ? Tbe New York Evening Post,
edited by Mr. W. C. Bryant, calls tho
recent legislation of Congress, embraced
in the force bill, "centralized imperial?
ism." Mr. Bryant holds "that Congress
eau do ho not unless it can point to war?
rant therefor in the powers granted br
delegated io the Constitution." Refer?
ring to tho force bill, Mr. Brynut uses
the following language:
"The danger is uo less real, and
soaroely less serious, than if we had un
imitator of Nap oleen at the head of tho
patton and tho army. If this act be en?
forced, and if it succeed in the work
proposed by it, every barrier which the
Constitution holds np against tho en?
croachment of tho central upon the
local governments is broken. Reverence
for the fundamental law will disappear,
and all the checks aud forms of our
Federal system will become tho sport of
political controversy. No mun can fore?
see whuttbe next step towards centraliza?
tion may bo; but every ouo may confi?
dently predict that no constitutional
limitation or prohibition will hereafter
be permitted by any political party io
control of the National Government to
defeat its ends, or to protect municipal
privileges against it. The local rights of
persons and of proporty, tho iocai con?
flicts of corporations, tho whole system
of looal laws, with tho controversies
they involve and the passions they excite,
will become elements of national politics;
andi-: the very organization of society
throughout the land will become tho
stake of national party struggles. Thc
absolute centralization of our Government,
and the destruction of the Federal system,
must soon follow, with civil war and dis?
union as the only alternative."
lu this connection, we may point to
.the views recently announced by Asso?
ciate Justice Clifford, of tho Supremo
Court, in giving the opinion of tho
Court, with respect to tho powers of
Congress, upon a question that aroso in
MusBaohusetts. Ho takes occasion to
give his views as to the uattiro aud ob?
jects of tho Federal Constitution, mid
"It'doeB not follow that tho govern?
ment ordained by the Constitution is n
government of unlimited powers. On
the contrary, the settled construction is
that the Government of the Uuited States
is one of limited powers, which is shown
to a demonstration by tho tenth amend?
ment, which reserves to tho States re?
spectively, or to tho people, ?ll power
not delegated to tho United States hy
the Constitution, nor prohibited by it
to the States."
Again he obsorves:
"Most/Of tho powors conferred upon
the Government of tho Uuited States
are .exclusive, and it is unquestionably
'true that the National Government, in
tho cxerciso of those powers, is supreme;
bat it is equally true that poweis not
delegated to tho United States by tho
Constitution, nor prohibited by it to tho
States, are reserved to the States respect?
ively, or to the people; and it follows
that tho States, in the exorcise of suuh
.' ,.,i'..\-A?<'v;4^-i??''v?>^-iV..-....- ? . . .
powers as are not delegated ta the United
States and oro reserved to thom, are also
supreme. ' Exclusivo power possessed by
the Uuit?d States cannot be exercised
by the States, nor can the exolusive
powora possessed by tile States be oxer
oisod by the Federal Gov?rument. They
are in those respects, though exercising
jurisdiction within the Bh.-uo territorial
limits,'separate and distinct lovereigu
ties, 'acting separately and independent?
ly of each other within their respective
spheres,' just as folly 'as if tho lino of
division was traced by land-marks and
monuments visible to the eye.' "
Such being tho doctrino recently laid
down by this high Federal Court, we
need not bo surprised that tho recent
march of Congress iu tho direction of
centralization should havo excited ap?
prehensions for tho safety of onr system
of Federal libertief. Nor do wo think
that wo can bo mistaken when wo sug?
gest that in tho next Presidential can?
vass Democrats will have the aid of lib?
eral Republicans in providing for thc
safeguards which tho Constitution af?
fords for tho rights of tho Stato and thc
liberties of tho citizen. This issuo be?
tween centralization and decentraliza?
tion involves a great governmental prin?
cipio and tho very lifo of that self-govern?
ment embraced in our peculiar political
Tho New York Tittles insists upou i
that the Democracy is in a sad dilemma.
It suggosts that there exists irreconcilable
differences betwecu tho Northern and
Southern wings of tho national Demo?
cratic organization. Wo presumo that
tho New York Times would bo pleased to
find its expectations realized. It may
bo, however, that the Southern people
may provo sagacious enough not to play
into tho hands of tho Times and its
friends. To give our readers somo idea
of the candor of tho Times, it is necessa?
ry for us to give but ono extract from
its article on tho terrible dangers that
would como of Democratic ascendancy.
The Titncs Bays "that hostility to tho
Constitution, as it is, is tho prevailing
sentiment of tho South, and that a favor?
able opportunity is looked for io do battle
once more for the Host cause.'" If the
Times wnuts to interpret rightly the
stato of affairs at tho South, it must
seek to lift itself above tho murky at?
mosphere of its partyism. But nono so
blind as they who wish not to seo. Is it
thus with tho Times?
France is at this time as complete a wreck
financially ns in a military point of view,
Euglnud soems to havo reached tho very
summit of substantial and well-grounded
prosperity. During tho last twelve
mouths Franco has added at least
81,500,000,000 to ber national debt,
while the people aro too poor to permit
of tho collection of taxes, aud loans can?
not bo raised becauso of internal tur?
moil, insurrection and anarchy. Thc
financial year of England closed on the
March 31. Although a gigantic war has
raged on tho contiuent during the lust
six mouths, which threatened, indirectly
at least, a most detrimental effect on
England, tho fabric of her prosperity
has remained untouched. Ono year ngo
tho revenue of tho United Kingdom,
estimated by tho Chancellor of tho Ex?
chequer, as likely to bo realized in thu
year ending tho Hist of that month, was
?G7,031,000, and tho actual rovenuo up
to that time, as now officially stated, wan
XG?L915.220, or ?2,311,220 (between
$10,000,000 and Sil.000,000) moro than
thc Chancellor had reckoned. Tho pre?
vious financial year also showed an ox
cess over the estimate of moro than
-?2,000,000. Au analysis of tho various
items of tho surplus shows that it has
not boen obtained from adventitious
sources. Customs, exciso and stumps
aro tho ohiof subjects of increase, aud
these, it is argued, havo increased bo
causo tho great producing and consum?
ing masses of tho people havo bought,
sold and used moro than they did for?
merly of all commodities that pay tri?
buto to tho Exchequer.
NEWS FROM THE EAST-THE EARTH
GIRDLED.-Wo had the pleasuro of a
flying visit, yesterday, from our fellow
townsman, W. K. Brown, Esq., who hus
returned to his nativo city after a long
absence. During tho period of his ab?
sence Mr. Browu has visited China, Ja?
pan, and tho other countries of ilio far
East, and brings tidings from tho Celes?
tial of the completion ol au important
entopriso. Ho states that the cable, un?
dertaken by a Danish compuuy, has been
luid betwecu Hong Kong and Shanghai,
a distunco of 210 miles, and that in less
than six months tho lightning girdlo
arouud tho earth will ho completed.

..Cumolntiv? Voting trio Remedy."
The ^in?nsborpV-3rV^ on early aud
oar nest advocate of thia mensuro, says:
"This plan'of voting will seouro to the
Sroperty-holdersand white people of the
tate five out of every eleven members
of the Legislature that may be elected,
and by its general influonee will, per?
haps, oauBo even the uon-property-kold
era to elect four respectable mon ont of
the eight that their numbers will enable
them to elect out of every cloven. But
parties aud population donotprnmiso to
stand at tho presonfc ratio long. The
negroes, wo believe, will vote for minoti
ty representation now ns n compromise
recommended by their party leaders, ai d
as a measure of peuco lo propitiate tho
spirit of anarchy. But if they were
capable of a glauco into tho future, (hey
would idso volo for tho measure as our
thut will give them a voice in their local
government, when the ratio of black and
white population shall have been
changed, and when they can elect but
five or oveu a less number out of every
eleven members of tho L?gislature.
Would it not bo singular if they, the
poor, ignoiant, semi-civilized negroes,
should moko, in 1872, such a wiso use ol
thc ballot as will inaugurate the practical
working ont in America, and in the State
of South Carolina, which Northern ven
goauce has si riven so hard especially to
11 u m il into aud degrade, au i tu pro vernen I
upon representative government as here?
tofore known and practicad, as great in
tho judgment of many deep and earnest
thinkers as the steam engine is, as a mo?
tive-power, to tho antiquated wind-mill?
It is nt least a bright anticipation to hope
"Wo will close by suggesting that au
amendment embodying Ibo privilege, of
cumulative votiug lie passed by two
thirds of tho Legislaturo at its hext ses?
sion, and that it bo submitted to tho voto
of tho people in 1H72 as the quickest and
least expensive method of amending the
Constitution, for a convention, which we.
lately suggested, beforu all parties had
unanimously pronounced in favor of cti
mulntivo votiug, will bo o great expense
to tho State."
Tun BEAUTIFUL STAUS.-Just now the

Mars. Here, then, wo have the three
most brilliant planets in a line, with tho

sho will havo reached Mars in her East?

aud Jupiter will be approaching each
other until tho 12th of May, when they
will bo in conjunction, or in tho sn mt:
longitude, and very close together, niter
which Jupiter will continue his West?
ward course, cud by tho 30th of J?iic
will bo in conjunction with tho sun. Foi
some time before and niter his conjunc?

after which ho will be seen West of thal

move Eastward until June, when it will
remain stationery, relatively, for sonic
time and then rotrogudo Westward. Il
will appear as evening star thc whait

slowly Weslwardly, aud will bo visible ir
