suggest the fundamental dlttioolty in the way, and which

are not flatteringly auspicious. While the RtgUter as

Good, solid, staid Democrat and Union men,
who, from the beginning of oar sectional did
cultie to the present time, have made every ef
fort and every sacrifice for the Union, and at
last, when the rebellion broke out, stepped
forward without hesitancy to the support
of the Constitutional authority of the
Government, and furnished from their
ranks about three to one of the men to go
Into the field to fight for the flag, will read the
extract from the Register with a smile. Tbe
Democracy and the Union men of all shades of
former political divisions expect to do the
fighting without any special aid from the "irre
pressibles," and we mistako the sign of the
times very much, if all tbe John Baowif higher
1 tw men of the irrepressible school, among whom
we class the Rtgieter, are not placed on tb back
eats hereafter and excluded from all posts of
honor, trust and profit. As to making conditions
with them in the organization of a Union party,
it is simply a preposterous proposition. If they.
a t;er what has been done by them to bring
trouble on the country, are allowed the protec
tion of law and order, tbey should thank God
and be exceedingly modest about making Di
gestions of any sort whatever.
The People's Government.
Tbe Government of the United States, as well
as that of each State, I emphatically the Peo
ple's Government. Tbe Declaration of Inde
pendence waa, through their representatives in
General Congress asaembled, the Proclamation
of the People; for It wa mad in their name
and by their authority. Tbe Constitution of the
Union was ordained and established by the Pea
pie of the United Bute.
Tbe Constitution, which establishes a Gov
ernment, Is not to be regarded merely a the
will of tbe majority, but a that of the whole
people, who, In that instrument, bar as care
fully guarded the right of minorities, as tbey
have defined what questions may be settled by
the decision of majorities.
The Constitution being tbe written exprei
ion of the People's will, the Government es
tablished by it, and acting under it, Is their
Government, and resistance to it constitutional
authority is resistance to the will of th Peo
A in a sister State, all process civil and
criminal, for th execution of the laws, run In
tb name of the People of the State of New

constitutional authority of the Federal Govern

execution an aotion against Jirrcason Davis
and other, who seek to overthrow th Constitu

have ordained and established.
It required nearly tb unanimous roice of th

increased population of the Union, a like nnani

shall be maintained inviolate, and that the au

which it ba prescribed in the Constitution , th

Suspension of the Writ of Habeas
Corpus—Opinion of Judge Taney.
Tb reader of th Siatumen will Bad upon
the first page of this morning' paper th de
cision in full of Chief Justice Taxir, of tb Su
preme Court of tbe United States, In the recent
oas of John MtaarsuN, cltlsenoi Baltimore,
on th question of th constitutional power of
the President to suspend the privilege of tbe writ
of Habeem Corpus, It Is an able, learned and
luold exposition of tbe law on tbls subject, and
will be read with deep and absorbing interest.
Encroachments upon th Constitution, whether
in th shape of resistance to or usurpation of
the constitutional authority of Congress, should
be equally guarded against, come from what
quarter they may.
Without remarking upon Judge Taniv '
opinion In detail, w would ask tb reader' at
tention to that portion in which the cUubc of
tbe '.Constitution authorising tbe suspension of
the 6roi corpus is particularly referred to and
discussed. That clause Is found In Article I,
section 9, clause 3, of tbe U. S. Constitution,
and I in these words:
"The privilege of th writ of habeas corpus shall not
bt suspended, unless ehenln oases of rebellion or in
vailon th publM safety may require It."
It will be found upon examination that Ar
ticle I. relates exclusively to tbe legislative de
partment of the Government. Section 1 de
clares that the National Legislature shall be
composed ol a Senate and House of Represent
atives. .Section 3 defines tbe qualifications,
election, &.O., of the Representatives; and sec
tlon 3 does the same in regard to the Senators.
Section 4 relates to the time of elections and
the day of the meeting of Congress. Bee tlon 5
defines what shall constitute a quorum in each
Hons, and section 6 relate to tb compeoBa
tlon of member. Seotion 7 presoribes the or
der of legislation, and section 8 declares, in di
reot and emphatic terms, tbe powers of Congress,
in nineteen separate clauses, Into which the eo
tlon is divided. Then follow section 9, which
declares, in like strong and decided terms, the
restrictions Imposed noon Congress what it
shall not do. These restrictions are embraced
in seven clauses, the second of which is in the
language quoted above, declaring that "the
privilege of tbe writ of habeas corpus shall not
be suspended, nnless when in esses of rebellion
or Invasion the public safety may require It."
Under this clause Congress may, in certain
specified case of rebellion or invasion, bus
pend the privilege of the great writ of kabtai
corpus, which secures tbe personal liberty of
the citizen. Congress is the sole judge wheth
erthe exigency justifying suob suspension has
arisen, and no such power is, by the Constitu
tion, entrusted to any other department of the

It Is better than being out In the night air, with
the sky for a roof, as we bare been since leav
ing Bellair. But lam beglning at the wrong
end of my etory.
After leaving Columbus, we had a verv pleas
ant ride through the beautiful country traversed
by the Central Road, and arrived at Bellair,
about 5 o'clock In tbe evening, where we found
a supper spread by tbe ladles on tbe green in
front of the barracks, which was very accept
able, a we were all very hungry after our long
ride. (Speaking of the ladies, I must say I
have eeen none prettier since we crossed the
As soon as we bad finished our meal, we Were
marched to our barracks, which we found to be
a machine shop witb books built similar to those
In Uamp Jackson. We took immodiate posses
sion, and by 9 o'clock all was quiet. Tbe color
guard occupied one of the sky parlors, close to
tbe door, which was very large, admitting plenty
of fresh air. About midoight we were awaken
ed by the rain, which was pouring Into our beds
in torrents. We jumped out and closed tbe
door, which helped tbe matter some, although it
oia not stop a noie in tne root, tnroutrn wbtcn a
stream of water came down till the rain was
over. We did not get try wet, and soon forgot
all in aleep. Sunday morning we drilled awhile,
and then went to churoh, beard a good discourse,
some gooa singing, and saw a few pretty girls.
Every fellow bad one picked out the night be-fo.-e,
and as several would make a choice of one
girl, it gav cause for sundry pleasant little dis
putes. Tbe Captain eclipsed us all, for he was
taken possession of by three very pretty ladies,
ana wnue we were mere ne was with tbsm most
of the time. But enough of that.
About 1 o'clock Monday morning, I was call
ed out very quietly by the Captain. I arose
quickly and put on my clothes, wondering what
could be up, tbat there must be so much secrecy
used. I supposed I was to be sent out as a
scout, for there bad been talk of tbere being
suspioious character near by. Wben I got to
the floor, I found instesd that I witb ten others
waa to go to tbe . commissary department for
provisions, as we were to more in the morning.
We worktd till 4 In the morning, and brought
over 7 days' rations, which were packed In
everything we could find, ready for ibe move
By 5 the camp wa all astir, packing up. At 8
we were ordered to march, tbe rain pouring In
torrents. It began to seem as though we were
really soldiers. Tbe boys were ail in good
spirits, and tramped tbrongh the mad with as
much pleasantry as though it had been dry and
warm. We were taken on to a steamer, and
carried across the river to Benwood, wbere we
were put into freight cars belonging to the B. k
0. R. R. After rnnning backward and forward
on tbe track till our patience was exhausted, we
finally got under way and took our course for
tbe interior of Virginia. Our train consisted of
ten cars, holding about half of the Regiment.
All along the route tbe- people mot us witb
blessings and cheers, and tbey overloaded our
stomachs and haversacks with food of all kinds.
Tbey all seemed perfectly delighted to see us,
and to regard us as their preservers; for they
have all been in great fear ot the disunionistr,
who have had the power In their own hands.
Now, that we have come among tbem, they feel
easy; as at our approach tbe secessionists have
all left for tbe east.
At 4 P. M. the cars were stopped. We were or
dered out and marched up a high hill. Everything
was conducted very quietly, and we all supposed
we were going to meet the enemy; bnt, instead,
we were ordered to load our gun and rest awhile,
and were then marched back to the cars, which
proceeded cautiously on their way. Every curve,
bridge and tunnel waa examined to aee that all
was right. And, while I think of it, I must say
mere are plenty oz curves and on ages, and some
of the largest tunnels I ever saw, one of tbem
half a mile long.
About nine we arrived in the town of Man
nington. After standing and marching around
till wa had ueed up about an hour and a half,
we were ordered Into a hall to spend tbe night
After half of ns had got In, we found it would hold
no more; so the left half of the company were
marched half a mile farther, to a tannery,
where we prepared to spend the night. I, w ith
several others, bad made a good bed of tanned
bides, and was almost asleep, notwithstanding
the noise the grumbler made, wben tbe order
came to shoulder our knapsacks and go back to
town . We demnrred at such a proceeding, but,
as it was tbe Capt.'s orders, we agreed to obey.
Wa tramped back, and found our boy had re
moved to varioua part of the town, and left the
hall to ns. We took possession, spread onr
blankets on the floor, and, with knapsacks for
pillows, were toon in th land of dreams. Mine
were of home and the dear onea there, and
when I awoke I was surprised to find myself
where I wss.
After a hasty breakfast of bread, coffee, and
pork, and a few eggs tbe people of tbe town
gave ns, we got again on the cars, and were put
on our way for tbe fnterlor. W rode about 4
miles, wben we came to a bridge tbat had been
burned. Here we found a Virginia Regiment.
We got out bere, and Co.' E and K were or
dered to join 3 Virginia companies, for a forced
march ot 14 miles. We were started about 9
and made our way through tbe woods, across
streams and mud boles, np tbe hills, which
might be called young mountains, sometimes
advancing slowly and again on tbe half run, till
we had gone about 3 or 4 miles, wben we came
to the village of Farmington, where we baited at
tbe house of one of the secession leaders, Col.
Willey. We found tbe women folks at borne,
and the grandfather. They were all for dis
union. Here we got some good water and a lit
tle bread. Some of tbe boys were alrald to eat,
for fear ofpoiton, but tbelr fears proved ground,
less, for those tbat partook feltnotbing from it.
I wa amused at th Cot.' niece, a smart girl
about 13 years old. We asked ber if she was
not afraid we would hurt them? She saidsbe
knew we would not, if we were gentlemen. She
thought she wa right, and believed we roold
find it so before we got btck. I told her she
was too pretty a girl to be a secessionist. She
did not think so.
After a rest of half an hoar, we resumed oar
march, passing a number of houses, some of
which were deserted, bnt the most were Inhabit
ed by Union people. We began to get verv
tired, and after another 4 miles' march we (top
ped at another farm house, wbere we found the
stars and stripe flying. Here we got torn dried
beef and as much milk a w wanted. I had
just finished my milk, and wa lying down for a
rest, when i wa startled by tbe report of a gun.
Heretofore we bad all marched with th least
Sossibl noise; so I looked; around amopg lb
ill for tb smoke, supposing tbe shot to be
from tbe enemy, bat I was soon attracted to tbe
right source by tb cries of one of our boy, wbo,
It teems, had lain down, drawing bis gun toward
him; as he did so, the hammer, catching, drew
back and fell on the cap, discharging th gun
into bis band, lacerating it so badly tbat it bad
tobe taken off. It waa a pitiful sight, and
made tbe boy very sad. Hi nam 1 Paden
Immediately alter tbe accident, w were order,
ed on our way. (Itwa tbe hardest 3 miles I
ver walked ) ' i
Wc next came to th town of Fairmont, on
th Monongabela River. Her th peopl
seemed overjoyed to lee as, end gav many a
cheer for the Ohio boys. Wepsed through
th town, aad ttopped at a fine bridge a quarter
of a mil from town. At night . w wer pott
ed along th river bank In such a way as to
command the opposite end of th bridge. v7e
lay upon our arms all night, ready for any at
tack tbat should be made; and it would have
been a lorry tima for tb enemy bad tbey darsd
to cross or burn tbe bridge. 1 did not sleep
much, for it rained quite bard part of the time,
and the bank wa so steep I wa obliged to
tick my heels in tbe ground to keep from slid
ing Into lie river... Ono In a while I would lose
mjaelf, but I would begin to slip, and then I
would awake. ' I never was more rejoiced to
see the morning fight In my life. . . -
Tbe next day we had two false alarms, and
wer all placed in order of battle; but nothing
occurred, and w passed th day in reeling.
Tb peopl her furnished us with th best of
food, and oar camp wa fall of ladies moit of tb
rwV itryrop;v: aew;:
arrivea in toe evening, and, i nave eaia, took
up oar qimters In a large maobln shop. ,
Grafton is, like most of tb Virginia towns,
composed of frame and log booses, set without
regard to regularity, and which seem, after
having been oooe built, to have been left to
take care of themselves,. There ar excep
tions, of course, but I speak ot the majority.
Tbere Is one little Catbolio churoh here, that
being th only religious edifice. There are
three or four hotels, and twice as many whisky
hole. It must be a very dull place in common
times, this machine shop being the only manu
facturing establishment I have seen. There is
a floe brick depot bere, tbe only nloe building In
the place. Grafton oontalns about 600 inhabit
ants. How long we shall stay bere I cannot
Yesterday, an Indiana regiment, (which
came here Friday,) part of the Virginia regi
ment, end part of oura, left here for Phllllppl, 14
miles from here, to attack ft secession camp,
2,000 strong. Our troops were commanded by
Col. Kelley, of tbe Virginia regimeoii. We
beard from them this morning, and they bad
attscked tbe rebels aod report says killed twen
ty men, the rebels mooing. at the first fire,
leaving 200 horses and 400 stand of arm be
hind. One IodianUn was killed, one Ohio boy
wounded, and Col. Kelley, mortally by pistol
shot. Tbe rebel party were quartered wbere
we now are, but npou hearing ot our approach
left for Phillippl. They are mostly boys and
pressed men, and, of course, not muoh could be
expected of tbem.
We had been among the advanced guard all
along, but tbe other companies, being afraid we
should get all the glory, grumbled, and so they
were sent oo this last expedition, and we order
ed back. We were tbe first on tbe ground, all
packed and ready for tbe start, and it caused
muoh hard feeling among ns -I mean compa

which will add still more to our back loads.

wash, a a stream runs few feet from the
back ot our quarters. I was out yesterday, and
with several others wandered tin the stream.
It was a beautiful afternoon, and, the scenery
being fine, I enjoyed it hugely. I would like
