of 195.384 54.

can mismanagement rednoed it to its present
lot" condition if the Representatives of the
people could oomprohend their duty In reference
to it, and baa tne courage, ,ano, nerve w vnrow
off the malign Influences, through which from
one' step ta another, the canals . have been
brought to their present low ebb.
' At the beginning of each session for several
years past, Republican members have admitted
that the question.; was-one, of v vast importance,
requiring due deliberation, and tnat it must not
be hastily acted on. and thus succeeding in
smothering it, the same member at : the end of
the-scaaion. have ooDOsed aetioo, because tbere
was not timo In the few last hours ot the ses
sion, to do anything with no grave a question
Last year Gov. Chasi was brought on the floor
of the House by some mysterious Influence, to
operate at the elose cf the session, on Republf
can members, on this canal question.' He and
the State officers defeated the lease to Ndhn
Mills and Rpunsoit, and the result Is
that Instead of receiving into the treasury
the rent of the year, $20,000, proposed to be
paid. by them in advance, there has. been drawn
ont of the treasury, over and above the tolls
paid in, more than $120,000 to be expended on
the canals ! . Last year, at the end of the session
Mr. Hitchcock opposed notion, because of the
importance and gravity of the question, and the
necessity of time for dno examination and de-
liberatiou, which, from the lateness of the hour,
he ctuld not hare; and last week he opposed
preliminary steps for this session, because they
were made too early ! And thus we go, until the
canals which, in 1851, paid into the treasury,
after defraying the expenses of their repair, the
sum ot $140,000, have been for several yrj
minus over $100,000 per annum, and will won
call upon, th .'treasury for .aid over "Ed store
their revenues, to keep them in any kind of or
der, to the tune of (200,000 per year, or more
than even thafy . , , i j-i ',,-,
In such a state of things, the twisting, turn
ing, shuffling and manipulations of the Republt
one knows the canals are going to destruction! ss
testes they oen,cd that each is tbeir present
condition, that It would require five years of
hard labor to recover a small part of the business
and revenuo they have lost through negligence
Every one Is aware that they ere a heavy charge
upon the treasury, and yet Republican mana
gers seem determined that CO reform shall Le
bad. The Governor gravely reccommends that
he shall be allowed to appoint a commission of
three men, to go out and look at them , and come
back and tell him what they think about it! A
member gravely requests that a committee of
twenty-one be appointed in the House to consider
th question, and another asks that it be incress
ed te eighty one, while the member who hails
from the county represented in days of old.by that
sensible'and frugal statesman and patriot, Jsai-
suah Mosiow, says he learns that a plan will be
proposed to eede these Works to th counties
through which tbey pass (!) and thus th repre
seatatives of the people tamper with this vast
Stats pro petty, and contrive to allow it to con
tinue to be subject to the animal mismanage

The Crisis.—No. 2.
, In a former article Wat considered the ne
cessity for amendment of theJConstitntion of tbe
United States. . Let ns enquire bow this amend
ment shall be obtained. Two methods only are
provided in the constitution. ' Firttt Congress
may (two-thirds of both houses concurring) pro
pose amendments for adoption by the States;
Second. Congress shall, on application of the
Legislature of two-thirds of the State. r?'l a
convention' .for oroDOslnc amendment, whieh.
in either case, become valid only when ratified
by the legislature - or convention of three-
fourths of all th States.,. , r
The first of these plans, although the simplest
and one mleht naturally suppose, the most fes
sible, is at prossnt impracticable. Three proofs
of this are fonnd, In tbe failure of the Senate
and House committee to agree upon any com-
promise, and thereiusai of to Republican ean-
cui to approve theoompromis tendered by the
representatives ot tbe border states, ins reason
of this is obvious.- Member of Congress ar
politicians, and moat, if not- all of them, were
elected directly noon th issue now dividing
th country, t Republicans are pledged to make
no compromise) who slavery;. .ana secessionists
are sworn to cavil for a hair's breadth of their
rlehta. How, then, can these men, without
violation of their pledges and their honor, make
tbe mutual oonceeslons necessary to adopt such
amendments as win auenee in present etnie
They cannot do it; and it is idle to look to Con
cross for a settlement of our political differen
cos, at least until time is afforded for an Inter
change of opinion with their constituents. It is
trne, a general expression of opinion from those
wno elected them, reducing sucn concession.
would secure it, but this requires much time, and
for palpable reasons is nnoertaia In character.
i be failure ot these committees to agree, ought,
therefore, to excite no surprise. - Indeed, it Is
unjust to onr KMreentativ to expect a rener
eral stamped on either side, to tacrine tbe prin
ciple ot tnew constituents, witnont weu eon-
ent. ''-' i-j I 'j J .'.J! si
Taking It for granted that an author! tativ
expression or tbe will ot tbe people te their Kep.
resentativ, eannot be hod in time for tbe pre
seat oriels, we must abandon the hope of amend
ment by this method. .
The only alternative then i in a .National
Convention.. . Believing this the only effectual
remedy (If any can be found) and that no settle
ment will be made until this is tried, I bare
been sapprlsed that Its sggstlont- mad line
and there, does not meet more general favor.
It It said that two-thirds of the State eannot
be induced to ask for a Convention. If our love
for th Union of these State baa grown so eold
as tbis.th attempt to preserve ft will be fruit-
If it be true, that twe-thirde of th State
cannot unite in a mere effort to -oommpromlse
their differences, what hope tbea is there that
ihree-foartbsof them will ratify a settlement
If proposed by Congress? ' Is it said, this too

And WnxaiAS, tb trcbable result of this
collision, unless the national troubles are peace
ably adjusted, will be a civil war, which would
be a disgrace to the age, and a reproach ta our
free Ingtutioce. Therefore:
. Rnolved, That lor tbe purpose of avoiding
such a calamity, and giving an opportunity tor
a peaceable settlement or existing ditliouities,
it is thai opinion of the General Assembly that
Congress should immediately abolluh the part
of collection at Charleston, and the ports at
such other point at which collision Is probable,
and that the garrisons ot the United States at
all sucn points enouiu oe immediately with

In offering bis amendment, Mr. IIUTCHE-
SON said be leita grave responsunitcy in acting
as a member of tbe General Assembly in this
emergency.- We are on th verge of civil war.
It Is said a oolilsion haa already occurred. We
should be cautious lest our action inflame the
public mind and precipitate the calamity,. The
present attitude 01 w eeceuiug cwtes raises
questions which belong to the people of the States
tbemaelvcs and not to the General Government.
A Stat baa do right to withdraw from the Union
at pleasure, but sovereignty resides in the States,
and if a Stat declare her connection dissolved,
there is no power. to ooerce by tbe General Gov
eminent, nor to recognize the independence of
the seceding States. It may b a violation of
th compact with tbe other fetatcs. Government
has no right to enforce the laws, but pofoy may
require tne aoanaonmeui 01. any .couuict witn
State Hot.il tbe matter can be referred to tbe
people. This I the real meaning ot the special
message of the President. . Rather than bare
civil war he wonld have tbe garrisons sod troops
at points exposed to conflict withdrawn, and the
ports of collection' at Charleston and other
places, in tbe seceding States exposed to conflict,
tnspended for tbe preesut, U any number of
lltates claim tcir independence and are resolved,
is tbey seem to be, to maintain it, a mere en
forcement of the federal laws would not settle
th matter. We will have all the evils of ac-
tnal dlsealution. whether w recognize it-or not.
There is no parallel betweea tbe nullification ef
lS3and the present esse, ana toerejore the
rented must be different.; The SDDeal ousht to
be taken to the people of the State to deter
mine what shall be tba relation or tbe seceding

Mr. MYRE3 said he would' like further time
to consider these resolutions. 'Jfe might vote
for tbem all after consideration, but tbey , in
volved several oppositions which could not be
well understood by bearing them read from the
clerk's desk. He felt a weight of responsibili
ty that would actuate him to vote for any prop
osition that gave any assurance of good results
to the country. But he desired to have time
to enable him to investigate them understand-'
iogiy. ' .
Mr.' ANDREWS said he rose with feelings
nob as he had never dared ,to hope he would
experience in this Hall , lie had been a mem
ber of this body five consecutlvo years, and pre
vious to this, he had battled all the time against
rhe'passage of thb'very enactments tho resolu
tion makes a pledge, to repeal, 'It really seemed
to him a political mllleniurn had arrived! Ho
would almost say, under each pledges, he could
wish to continue to be a member of the Ohio
Legislature, though Le had said to his corstltu-
ente many times, bis term of service was el
ready too Ior-g. . Mr Andrews said he devoutly
npped tnis resolution would receive a unani
mous vote, for by that means tbe people of
o'lier States would believe we were lo earnest.
JUr. Andrews said he had "lull faith that the
piedgee made, would be carried out. for be had
served a lose time with many gentlemen cf the

I be third, fourth, tilth, sixth, nd ssrecth
resolutions were unanimous. .
Thequestion being os the oth resolution, Mr,
CONVERSE moved to emend the same by
out all after th words "President of
the I'nited States." lis said This is tbe most
important action that Has or wilt come before
this HousotbU wlnter.We hre threatened with
disunion and civil war. Tba cotton States are
for the present already gone, and the only hope
tho country has is in. conciliating the Oorder
States. The times demand not only warm and
pjttrlotic hearts but cool bends calmneM de
liberation. This pi6dgo of Ui military t'urces
of the State is threatening in its character and
will only add fuel to the flames. Weuustoour
cUiato. Our material interests all lie with the
border and iu csee Of a fiuai aftparat.oo, which
I play Almighty God to avert, tho irrevocable
laws ot commerce and material wealth will ul
timately drive us and attach us to the South.
Mr. JONES, of Hamilton, said be ehould vote
(or the 8th resolution, bnt not so cheerfully as
if Mr. Devore's amendment had been adopted
Mr. JONAS remarked, be felt as if he was not
ready without tome consideration to vote for
coercion. He would wish tbe ameudmont to pass
which would reconcile his mind; he was not al
together satisfied but that a State when she felt
oppressed and insulted might tecede from the
Union under p-mliar circumstances, and I, for
one, am not willing to use coercive measures, or
spill the blood ot our leiow citizen. M we en
rage our border States, and tbey also secede.
what will be tbe'situation of our towns and citlet
on tbe border rivers. History gives no sQoount
ot any large commercial oily prospering on the
national border; ruin an devastation will lollow
them all. . I will not detain tbe House with any

Mr. BALDWIN asked to record hit vote
upon the first six of tbo Resolutions adopted oa
Saturday afternoon, and to put upon the jour
nal, bis reasons for so voting, as follows:
In voting for the pisssgo of tho third Joint
resolution, relative to our federal relations, in
so far at it relates to the enforcement of the
laws of Congress, until repealed or adjudged to
be unconstitutional by the Proper ludioial tribn.
nal, I protest against such construction as teems
to decy tho right of private ludement .if the
Constitution by other than the judicial officers of
toe uovernmeoc. 1 believe with Jackson,
taat every man wno sircars to support the Con
ttitntion swears to support It as be understands it
Snd not as it is understood or oonstrued by
others. I believe that It the duty of every of
ficer, ot every department of our government,
State asd National, In tbe exercise of diner.
tionary power, to discbarge his duty in obedi.
euqe to tbe Constitution as be honestly inteprsts
niur uiiuitii. 10 voting ior tne sum resolu
tion I admit that it it the incumbent dutv of a
State having enactments on iu Statuta flmb
in contravention of tbe Constitution and laws of
the United States to repeal them; but I do uot
believe It to be the duty of a State to repeal its
euautrneuts neoanse tney render less ttUcicnta
law of Congress, doubtlul constitutionality of 'or
containing odious and nojust provisioa, sif such
enaoimems are not in contravention of the Con
atitntinn. '- ,.
Finally, I believe It to be the dutv rf tho
people of the States, thoir legislatures, and their
government, to resort to ail just and legal meant
to render Inefficient such enadubentsof .Cacgrett
as may be oontrary to tho laws of God. and In
opposition to the moral and religioot sentiments
01 tne people, no Burn law can or ought to been-
torcea among an enngntened religious people.
The rendition of fugitive slaves is in nlaln con.
tradiction to tbe Divine law, written on tablets

It should go on the journal as a matter of tight
if it Is a mere explanation of th gentleman's
