Homogeneity.
la the very Able speech of Junisoa Davm,
ra the occasion of hie inauguration as President
ot the Sontbern Confederacy, this passage oc-
mtt ' ' r
"To increase the cower, develop the resour
cos, and promote the happiness of a confedera
cy, it ie rwrnieit there should be so anch of
homogeneity tnss me wenou
should be tbe aia of tbe whole. Wkemttas
doe not exist, ajtugotisaa arc ecvrntewi
which must ud aboard remit la ssasietv."
A perfect homogeneity or Identity ot eaar
ter, lnstitutlose And intorests, ot eovthiav, very
cloaely approximating to it, cannot rationally
be exi-cted even In territory as limited as
Waf tka mnnoafd Southern Confederacy. If
that CcJederacy should be permanently estab
Uahed, and go into operation as aa independent
gwewnaicot, it will inevitably result that tbe
woMJETrrTr. on which Mr. - Davis places so
mack teliacce, will bo disturbed, anUgonlsms
wiUa caMdered.aca separation Uke place.
Ah a1 j taert art atnUerings ia tbe disUnoe,
hkh' arf omioocl algal that this AjmsjwoM
3ejehera Coefedcracy will have some of the
d.S-liifei to caejeater which oar fathers had

tsttiow, and eomt rseh ooacessions and compro
mieee 13 mJ:e, as were rcquirtd of our pa-
rTie CooMllation and Government which the
imben Coegttn has initiated, 1 but provia
iaaal temporary. A pKmanent and atabl
Com of government ander a Federal Coastita
ti9 or Cctapaet of Union 1 yet to be agreed
apoa aad establ'uhed. By th time it become
abeelately accessary for tbe Mceding State to
take this step la order to maintain their posi
ttcti, auUgonisms will arise-and conflicting In
terest will corn ia eolliBloa.".The30 mutt be
reconciled, not oa th abstract principle of
homogeneity, bat on the broader and more prac
tical on of Aiming, by mutual concession and
compromise, or in other word, of non-intervention,
to promote th welfare of every por
tion; and, a far as possible, to allow each por
tion to be the judge of what will most conduce
to Its welfare. 1 '."
'It vu apoa this idea that our Union was
oclglnallj formed. . It can bs mtlntatned upon
no other, nor eaa any Confederacy formed out
of it be perpbluated upon any other principle.
It huso infused itself Into our national life,
that no considerable portion of tbe American
people esu be kept together in a federal anion
apoa tbe mere principle of homogeneity. ,' The
rights', tbe Interests and the diverse institution
of diatinet states -and communities must be
provided for, and allowed at far' as possible
fro play. ' The motto for our owa and for every
aaooessfal- Confederacy mast be, not Homoge

Mr. STtPHXifs, in tbe absence of tbe tfon
JirriasoN Da vii, the President elect, declined
to discuss questions of general policy. As to
what might be done before Mr. Davis arrived ,
he said:
In the meantime there are matters we may
vr-rv profitably be directing our attention to
such as providing necessary postal arrange
ments, making provision for tbe transfer of the
custom houses from tbe jurisdiction of the sep
arate States to tbe Confederacy, and the impo
si lion of such duties a will be necessary to
meet present and expected exigencies. Ia the
exercise of the power to levy duties, we are
limited to the objects of. revenue. A small
duty, not exceeding 10 per cent, upon the im
portations, it is believed wiu be mauiem.

And. above all. in tbe tfeHa between this
and tbe arrival and inauguration of the Presi

The Two Presidents Contrasted.
,
' Tb New York Htrald, In an article on " Ia
sugurAtion Travels,' after describing tb pro
gress of Mr . LmcoLit toward tb National Cap
ltal, the carinas speeches he made, end the droll
Incident that happened on tbe route, turns to
tbe President of the Southern Confederacy, and
thai draws th contrast between him and tbe
raidat of tbe Northern Confederacy:
Ti after Preai Jea: , Mr. Divis, hu been rs-
tnivwi with the greatest enthusiasm during bis
junrary from Miatissippl to Montgomery, Ala
bama. 11 made Bva ana twenty speecnes fa
realt, but we do not hear that he told any sto
ries, cracked any jokes, asked th advice of the
young women about ble whiskers, or discussed
political platforms. Hi spse:hes are rather
highly flavored with tbe odor of villainous salt
petre, end he evidently believes that civil war is
inevitable. Hut we must recollect tint Mr. La
yis is a soldier, a graduate of West Point, a he
ro of the Mexican war, and a statesman of a mil
itary turn of mind. Mr. Lincoln was a splitter
of rails, a distiller of whisky, a story teller and a
Joke maker, tie afterwards became a stump or
ator, and used bis early experiences as bis liter
ary capital. Now we have the rails abandoned,
the wbieky still stopped, but the scent of both
hang about tb manner and tbe matter of hi
speeches. For tbe future the Northern Presi
dent should profit by the example of hi South
ern rival, who does not attempt to tell tbe
Southern people that the crisis is nothing, that
nobody is hart, (on tbe oontrary, bo acknowl
edge that tbe revolution hart s North and Sooth)
but declare that th South is ready to meet any
bardsbip ratner than to abandon its principles.
Mr. Lincoln must look tnis state or tamps in
tbe face. It cannot be turned off with a joke;
and when next he open bis mouth we trust be
will not put bit root in it. ( ,
i
The Coercion Policy of the President Elect.
We copy the following from the New York
7How. It discloses fully and frankly the co
ercion and war policy into which inch Republi
can presse a the Tribune, the Jeuntaf of this
city, and other of thsaaame radical abolition
stripe woo Id foroe the booming administration:
Mr. Tbomaa Hutchison, oi tfoyie county,
Ey., lately visited Mr. Lincoln at Sringfiefd,
and in reply to tbe question wbat wa the reel
ing of Kentucky concerning the Pro Slavery
rebellion, answered that the people of that State
were lor the Union, but that they would regard
any movement ot coercion as a declaration of
war. To this statement Mr. Hutchison reports
Mr. Lincoln a replying, emphatically: . ;
"It Kentucky bows to say that If the federal Gov
ernment nndertakea to recapture tbe Southern forte and
count the revenue, and war annua, aba will unite with
the Sooth, let her prepare for war."
This i the true dootrine. Those who pre
tend to believe in toe Union, and yet declare
themselves ready to fight for the pretended
right of Secession, may as well understand that
the case is a serious one. If there is a right
or Secession, there is no uovernment- They
who assert the one deny the other; while tbe
Federal Executive, whose members are solemn
ly sworn to fulfill the duties of a Government,
must, in obedience - to tbe sacred obligations of
their oaths, begin by demonstrating that , there
is a Government. This la Mr. Lincoln's duty,
and it la also, tnank ooa: nis unexibie deter
mination: and we may be sore that there will
be no sham, no false pretenses, in bis mode of
treating the subject. , . - , ,

A New Penitentiary.
Col MaitrrtNNr: Without intending to re
ply directly to the oommuolcatloa of "Tax
PariA," published in your paper of yesterday,
I design! to 'tiris one or two suggestion on the
Arno subject J H .1. ? . i j . i ,
If the State can postpone the buildiug of a
second penitentiary, . without serious ills, it
should be done. If, however, tbe facts Indicate
that, before a now penitentiary can be comple
ted, the State will be paying board bills (be
sides loilug the labor) of convicts In different
county jails, for want of room In the old peni
tentiary, then it is false economy to delay.
1 have heard grave legislator propose the
sme remedy of Tax Payer,", vis: ' that
oue hundred or one hundred and fifty of the
ooovicis suouia oe pardoned out. Here Is no
doubt but if tb rule were adopted, to discharge
k, convict tor cacti one received, that another
prison would be useless; and I suggest, by way
of improvement, to Save the expense of prose
cution ana transportation, by discharging them
oetore iriai, until tne expiration of terms or
part of convicts now in confinement. It seems
to me that tnis is just at reasonable as the pro
posed remedy; for I asdume the Governor has
doue his duty, and that there is quite as much
danger in the indiscriminate exorcise of the
pardoning power as in Its disuse.
Again; it is laid that udees err in the sen
tence of orlmiuals for too long periods. I do
not believe that such Is tbe fuel; for tbe simple
reason that it is unnatural. It may be in coun
ties where, from the frequency of second con
victions or tne laxity oi prosecutions, that Judg
es are sometimes driven to the opinion that the
law is no longer a terror to evil doers. If. there
fore, the fact la As claimed, it ia rather an ar
gument that there are more nersons deserving
Ibis kind of protectioa from tbe State than she
can reasonably be expected to provide for, than
a reason for non-action.
The idea of sendicg men of 39 years of eje,
who are making money lor the State, and per
haps themselves, to the Reform School farm is
simply absurd.
If the Koform School la a humbug, wbat
would "Tax Payer's" policy make ill I regard
the Reform School aa a success, and believe
import&ct results will fliw from it. There may
be some convict now in confinement who
might be profitably taken thither. If so, It
should be done; and somebody must be at fault
l or not naving done it.
I do not Bay there are no reasons for post
ponement of initiative steps far a new prison,
but I do say that tbe reasons urged by 'Taxpay
er,' and others I have heard discuss the sub
ject, do not meet tbe question.
Whilst on this subject, I should like to en
quire why it is that more than one-third of the
convicts are without employment! Whether tbe
convicts do not perform each day as much labor
as other mea engaged in the same kind of la
bor 1 -And if so, why can the State only realise
the average price of 40 cents per day lor their
labor? . : - .
If tbe Penitentiary, instead of being a tax up
on tbe State, is a source of profit to the amount
or ifiu.iHHj per annum, why is there so much
trepidation upon a question which a school-boy
may answer i Nobody denies that either crime
mcst oe diminished, different punishment pro
vlded, or a new iri;on furnished. If the con
ditioo of tbo fioance will not justify tb latter
remeay, tne others should be considered prompt
ly; an 1 1 know ot no period when the rvai eV-
uundfer ItyitUtit would allow more leisor
for suck a duty than tbe present. If neither
of these remedies is practicable, let the State
elect a locality, set apart the labor and tbe re
venue to be derived therefrom to the building of
a new penitentiary; and la a lew years tbe work
will have been done and paid lor. We are of
opinion that these convicts who not only piy
their way, but actually pay a profit or bonu$ on
crime, to the State, have rights as well as our
selves, and that society has no right to crowd
them into damp, filthy acd unhealthy prisons,
which a sudden epidemlo convert into charnel
bouses. Indeed, I am not certain that justice
does not require that tbe proits of last year's
labor should not at once be expended In secur
ing tbe future health and comfort of the con
VERITAS.

H. B. 317, by Mr. BLAKESLEE Supple
mentary to the various act in relation to the
organization of cities and Incorporated villages,
was read a tnira time.
This bill, (which I to allow Cleveland to fund
a debt,) having been discussed At length, en th
motion to eogross, Mr. Fiagg objected to tbe
bill, and suggested that an additional tax of 2
mills, for two year, would pay off th debt it
proposed to fund. .... j
Mr. BALDWIN said, I propose a vary little
amendment one so small tbat I bop tbe
friends of tb bill cannot object to it adoption
It is tbat th tax for the sinking fund shall "be
not leti men one-tot nuu en the Hollar," aad sur
tiolent to pay th bonds " Mfttrtf.'i.: ;
I am awar that (be bill nuthorixet the city
eouncil to levy such a tax, but It doe Dot re
quire luch levy to be made. I dislike publio
debts of all kinds, and will never agree to
authorize an Issue of bonds on tb part of any
local authority, wniist conoeoting witn tbat
Authority tbe correlative duty to levy a suffi
cient tax within a reasonable time, to pay tbe
bond. The promise to pay should carry with it
tb srevis loss necessary for tb- payment
bope therefor the Amendment will b Adopted,
ana it so, snail vote lor tne oiu. i
Mr. BALDWIN said his mind might be
more obtuse, than tbat of th gentleman from
Cuyahoga, but if any on could see a provision
requiring tne city counoii to provide by taxa
tlou for th payment of tb bond at maturity
hi vision mast be (harper and mora clearer
than mine. It I elalmed that it is of no use
ta make laws requiring a city council to impose
th tax; for it is said tbat such law can, have
no effect unless th counoii choose to make tbe
law. 1 1 differ in this view. It toeiilpe duties are
imposed by law, which th council will be (worn
to support, I cannot sew how tbey cao,asjbonet
men, get aronna it. ' '. .. . .
The Constitution imposes oa th legislature
the duty to provide a sinking fund for tbe pay
ment of the principal of tbe public debt of not
leas thsn one hundred thousand dollars per
year. Will any one saytht this provision Is
of no account? i Will yon say that we, a mem
ber of tb legislature, oan neglect to provide
the tax thus required unless ia clear violation
or our solemn oatbT Ji this provision is lm
portent to rerruiate our action, then a correa.
ponding duty imposed by positive provision of
law, cannot be gea oy tbe city council with
out a criminal neglect of duty. yv .--.

pealed bad been enacted for tbe promotion of

nty member of thi House had Just voted to
refuse the poor sum of $100 a county for Teach
ers' Institutes. ,.,f ,-, t
Mr. PARROTT reminded the House that
this bill did not propose to expend this amount
for trumpets and thunder, but to pay for a prop
er eare of tbe bublio arms, at a rate, that, with
our volunteer list, would amount to no such sum
He compared our provisions, In this way, with
those of other State.

the bill, and It passage at Ibis time. We bad
negleuted this matter too long, and onr milita

other States. There were those who thought
we pught not to pass this, lest it might offend .

it ia Ohio. He read a statement of the arma

Legal Difficulties Caused by Secession.
A curious Question came UD for diacriMinn ha. .
fore Judge Chamberlain, of Mobile, Ala., on 1
reo. v. 11 was involved in the case of a fugi
tive from Justlco for a, crime committed in tbe '
eastern uisttiotoi Virgiula, and tbe requisition
for the delivery of the criminal to tbe officer
accredited ' from the above District waa reoog
nized by Judge Jones, ot tbe late United Statea
Court of this District, on the very day of the ' -
o uruiuincs 01 secession and tbe
last of the existence of said Court. On tbe
ground that the act of secession nullifierl all
judiciary relations lately existing between th
State and tbe United States, a writ of Aniens
eorpui was sued out by F. S. Blouut, Eiq., coun
sel for tbe prisoner, Robert B. Armlstead.Esq.,
appearing for tbe other side. Mr. Blount plead-
ed that all statutes of Alabama and tb Uni
ted States, , providing for the rendition of
fugitive from justice, were a dead letter
from the time of. the passage of the ordinance
of secession, by the Convention, until they were
reaffirmed by the action of that Convention up
on them,., which did not take place until tbe
27th ult., and that, therefore, the detention of "
the prisoner wa illegal during tbat pe--
riod, aa well as waa th order for his rendition,
issued from a Court which had become extinct
with tbe act of sedesslon. Mr. Armistead cited
many authorities to prove nsuage in similar '
cases, and to prove tbat even where treaties, ob
ligatory ef the rendering of fugitives from Jus-
ticc, did not exist between nations, yet they ,
had the right to deliver such fugitives; and they
bad tbe right to requett tbat such fugitives bo
delivered, to subserve tbe ends of Justice
though they bad not the right to dtmand such
delivery. It was understood, and righteous in
ternational uiuage, that the power to do so
should not be the plea of the nrooriet nf
shielding a criminal international relations in
these matters ' being those of simple equity,
when 00 formal stipulations existed for th,r
specifio control. Judge Chamberlain took tbe
cose under advisement, reserving Judgment, ,
As the sword of bait
