Tka Clnelanart. Weekly Prean,
Tor the current week, Is published this
morning, and for tale at the counter. The
WniLT Pines' it published at one dollar a
year, and a bare no hesitation in saying
that It gives the, bent dollar's worth of any
paper in the country.
In a previous article we discussed slightly
tbs prevalent American idea that the progress
, of this country is due to American institu
tions. The idea is that our institutions hare
caused a vast increase in the intelligence of
the people, which has developed extraordi
nary enterprise, and resulted in great mate
rial progress. Let us look at the philosophy
of the thing. Our Institutions are fixed, and
over seventy years old. We have progressed
wonderfully in intelligence. Then our intel
ligence must exceed that which formed our
institutions. Then we ought to be ablo to
make better ones now, for generally It is not
allowed that any thing human is perfect, es
pecially any thing-of a former age. Then we
must have outgrown our institutions, and
they really must be a cramp on our progress.
These are the natunil conclusions, but
these are by no means allowed. All our
progress In intelligence but exalts the In
stitutlons above our own wisdom, and Beta
them up as sacred, which It would be impious
to touch or to attempt to chaoge.-' These in
stltutions, formed seventy years ago by
people who had been reared under mon
archical institutions, and of course had noth-
ing like the intelligence that is developed by
republican institutions, have caused a. won-
. derful progress in popular intelligence, and
yet the Institution are so far superior to the
popular intelligence now that devout phi
losophers like the Otuttu conclude that of
- course the finger of God must have been in
, their formation.
Utners, jess devout, out wno also suppose
that the institutions have developed Ameri
can intelligence, think that wonderful wis
dom happened just at that time to be concen
trated In a few, like Hamilton, Sherman,
Adams aud Jefferson, who executed a work
which has caused knowledge to be wonderfully
increased, but that the seed of statesmen was
exhausted in the effort. Thus each theory of
onr wonderful institutions which bare caused
a wonderful increase of wisdom, though it is
all the while declining from the starting
point, requires the supervention of something
miraculous at the start, either divine wisdom
or a set of demi-gods, like Jefferson and
Can we not see in our own popular ideas
bow easy His that superstitious peoplesshould
acquire traditions that a few ages or genera
tions ago, more or less, according to the pop
ular Ignorance, gods came down on earth
and mingled with mankind; bow easy it is
to believe that our ancestors ages ago had
direct inspiration from Heaven? The Gazelle
thinks that our institutions caused our won
derful progress, and naturally accounts for
the miracle of a stream rising above its
fountain, by supposing tUnt Providence had a
hand in forming the institutions. To be sure
Mr. Jefferson, who wrote the institutions hivd
not the creed which would now he thought an
indispensable prerequisite for divine inspira
tion; but then some of the oldpatriurchs would
not now be called unobjectionable in their
lives, and Abraham was an idolater when he
was chosen to form the institutions of an
equally progressive people.
Popular superstition already makes Jeffer

gods. Suppose we hud not the anchor of
Christianity, how many generations would
pass before we would fully deify them? As
far as the principles of government are con
cerned, we worship them now. In all na
tions, popular tradition makes gods of
ancestry. This is the necessary consequence
of the idea of their superior wisdom. So the
popular superstition that our ancestors were
superior in size, exalts them into giants by
going far enough back; and then, in order to
account for them, naturally runs into the
theory that gods came down and mingled
with the daughters of men; who also, in ac
cordance with the same idea, were so much
fairer than women are now, that their attrac
tions encroached on the boundaries of
We have not the utmost respect for the
etatiatical mode of establishing principles.
There is a eytem of deductive reasoning
applying gefferal principles to particular
cases. There is an inductire method of rea
soning which arrives at general principles
by what has been ascertained from particu
lar cases or individuals of the same class. It
ii difficult to see how the deductive method
- can have anything to start on until general
principles bare been established by induc
tion. But this statistical method partakes of
neither. It does not even deduce from gen
eral facts, but from 4 single one, and that
without regard to whether any connection
uf cause and effect can be traced Between it
end the principle deduced from it. It merely
takes two coincident circumstances and
makes one the cause and the other the effect
it makes no difference which and from that
derives a principle.
Thus, America has free institutions. Amer
ic has progressed wonderfully, therefore free
institutions are the cause, and progress the
effect. But the Democrats say, the Democratic
Party has bad the control of the Government
during most of the time of this wonderful
progress, therefore, Democratic administra
tions are the cause. One is just as true
as me otuer. est is a most convenient
theory, but it is indispensable that it should
be manipulated by the proper bands. By it
the heathen show that Christiauity is fatal to
national prosperity, because the decline
the Roman Empire dated from the establish
tuent ot toe Christian religion. Hy it David
might have established the pnnrlul. that
t wickedness is the cause of prosperity, for
he said the wicked were lor more blessed
in their lives than the righteous, and
bad no Donas In their death. By it
ooiomon esiaoiisnea that the average of

i nave direct communications from Heaven.
I It might be shown by it that the direct and
visible government of God caused a tend
ency to idolatry and Immorality, for when the
Israelites bad the pillar of clotd by day and
the pillar of fire by night, and the audible
voice of God for their direct inn. anri th
passage ot the red sea, the spring from the
mitten rock, the food directly from Heaven,
and the law from Mount Blnai,
they were perpetually given to idol
atrya thing which ha not been known
among thera since God ceased his direct
communications with them and were vastly
mutimm e.at) their rives.' Is the Oatetu
aware that the present census will probably
show that the greatest progress in the United
States during the last decade, has been in the
South-western Slave States; and of the nat
ural deduction from this that slavery It the
cause of the highest progress?. Thus all
torts of principles, most shocking to the
GatttU, may be deduced from its favorite
science. Suppose we look at individual cases.
We all know the operation of motives on
ourselves. What is the chief inducement for
emigration, to a crowded population where
land is monopolised by the wealthy few?
Cheap land, the hope of having a farm of bis
own to leave to his children. America offers
this to the people of the old world. The Gazette
counts the immigration as a great feature
In our pro gross, but says it is not cheap land
that brings it here, but institutions. Do
we not treat this extraordinary affection for
onr institutions with ingratitude when we
shut it out from participation in them for
five years, because the Immigrants do not un
derstand' them? One great feature of our
progress is our Irish immigration. It is well
enough known why that comes to the United
States in preference to Canada. The Irish
are hostile to British Government. It is a
preference for our nationality, not for our in
stitutions, unless they dislike popular control
of government, for the people have much
more direct control of their Government in
Canada than in the United States: the right
of suffrage is about as general, and a majority
of the Parliamentcan change the Administra
tion any day; while we can not change ours
short of four-year intervals, and the power of
our President enables him to set himself en
tirely above the control of Congress.
To be sure, every boy in Canada can not
expect to be President. Docs that make the
difference in progress ? How is it, then, that
we are continually preaching that office-seek
ing is the curse of the nation? General
Cass Says that, in bis advice to young men,
and he ought to know. The British Govern
ment is far more popular in its nature than
ours, as for as the control over the executive,
legislative and judicial departments of gov
ernment is concerned. The House of Com
mons, "elected by the people, molds the
Government, Including the Constitution, at
its will. But suffrage is not universal. Does
that account for our own superior progress?
it because here every body participates in
the Government? If suffrage is the cause of
our prosperity, why do we exclude immi
grants for fire years ? Why colored people?
Why slaves? Why women? What vast
materials of national prosperity we have
lying unused in these elements.
Our national brag about our institutions
arrises from a total misrepresentation of
them. We talk of ours as an experiment in
popular government, as if it was now for the
first time being worked out; und we point to
our immigration, our steamboats, our rail
roads built of money borrowed and robbed
of confiding European capitalists, our smash-ups
and onr scattering over the continent, as
proof that the experiment is a brilliant suc
cess; while the great features of our Govern
ment, and those which we habitually exalt
most, are farthest from popular control. We
exalt our written Constitution a thing
in its nature an iron rule. Most

Is that an experiment of a Government
founded on the popular wisdom? What
feature of our Government has had so much
Democratic laudation as the veto power?
"Look to the Senate!" was the ancient Whig
cry; with the Senate the country is safe
"Tho veto is the only solvation of a Demo
cratic Government," was the Democratic
cry. Now the Democratic principle is, leave
every thing to the Supreme Court. Polit
ical qnestions are only safe when they are in
the power of men removed from the popular
control by the life tenure of office.
Yet our Fourtb-of-July orators and Presi
dents' messages, and our national gasconade,
constantly vaunt this as the great, original
and only successful experiment of a Govern
ment subject entirely to the control of the
people. If our experiment is a triumphant

Mr. Gurley—His Reception and Doings.
The greeting accorded to the Hon. John A.
Gnrley at his first formal interview with his
constituents, on Tuesday evening, was, to
appearance, snch an one as he had reason to
be glad to recelre."Wllhout being an enor
mous gathering, it was sufficiently extensive
to be respectable; and the temper manifested
Wat such as to indicate a popular feeling of
respect and honor for the gentleman In whose
behalf it was convened, i
That the people in his district have found
in Mr. Gurley a public servant of unusnal
activity, all of which he it ready and willing
to devote to their use, there is no 'room to
doubt; and that in integrity and faithfulness
he has few superiors, we, in common with all
those who are personally acquainted with his
character, do most sincerely believe. That
In some things he may have misjudged is
possible; but in public life men do not cor
enant to be perfect; it it enough if they are in
corruptible. The errors which they honestly
commit, are never very mischievous; it is
only when they add moral unsoundness to
mental fallibility that they become dangerous.
The project of a general character to which
Mr. Gurley has devoted the most attention is
the establishment of a Government Printing
house. In this, while we have felt no Incli
nation to impeach his motives, we have, as
we did not hesitate to show, not agreed with
him. That the public printing was one of
the most prolific sources of official corruption
there is no dispute; and that the new plan
will put a check upon tome old modes of dis
honest proceeding is probable; but the ulti
mate question is, of how much malpractice it
a given scheme capable? and in this respect,
we are Inclined to think, the present arrange
ment will be found, in the end, not to fall
very much behind any of its predecessors.
The main objection to the thing is that It is
founded upon a false principle upon an in
correct idea of the province and functions of
government. It has established an unneces
sary institution, and connected it with the
State, and fixed a precedent which needs only
to be generally adopted to turn the govern
ment into a manufacturing concern of the
most extensive and various character. In
this mistake, however, Mr. Gurley has not
differed from the majority of hit colleagues
and of American Statesmen generally; the
true boundary of the legitimate powers of
government never having been very accu
rately marked by any, nor apparently very
We observe that, In his address, Mr. Gurley
claims and we doubt not justly to have
originated such measures as will insure the
enlargement of the Louisville and Portland
canal to a capacity sufficient to meet the
wants of the public, within the Bpace of two
years. If he has in reality secured the
means to perform this great and necessary
labor, which has for so many years been de
layed by the squabbles of politicians; the
schemes of jobbers, and the inertness of a
mercenary government, he has performed a
service to his constituents which will de
serve to be long remembered, and will place
him high in the catalogue of useful and
faithful servants of the people.

Mr. Gurley—His Reception and Doings. Revolting Cannibalism in the North-west— An Indian Boy Murders and Devours Six

of cannibalism were latelr received there.
and that the victims were six in number a
Salteaux Indian and his wife and tour chil

members of the family.
About the beginning of March, a Salteaux,
named Ke-wa-kie-eick, who was wintering

south of "Dawson's track" to hunt moose.
On his way be noticed in the snow the trail
of Indians, who appeared to have been catch

them, he was startled by finding an Indian
woman lying dead near the track. Her re

further on the hunter saw a boy named Sha

about ten or twelve years of age, and hod
been cooking something which had the ap

and here a still more frightful scene met his
gaze. Inside lay the bodies of an elderly
Indian and four of his children all of
whom had been murdered.
The father had evidently been shot while
sitting in the tent, and it is supposed that he
must have been the first victim. PortionB of
some of the bodies were cut away, and from

The Emperor Napoleon, after a few intro

that tiie bombardment of Palermo was a
horror, and the capitulation an act of

are equally repugnant to His Majesty, he has

have been taken to avoid both the bombard

to assure the King of the Two Sicilies of the
interest he feels in the trials which he is sub

forcible language, the necessity of making

to grant reforms, and to endeavor to come
to an understanding with Piedmont. His
Majesty, together with England, would

influence with Garibaldi to prevent him
from going to extremities. And thereupon

lnte Halifax papersays: "The excitement about
the gold diggings at Tangier River still con
tue week numerous specimens nave been
brought into town, sufficient to establish the
tact that gold does exist there, and in con
siderable quantities. Several hundreds of
persons are off to the diggings, prospecting,

amateur diggers. A stage-coach from the
city to the diggings is talked of.

animal chewed up a buckskin purse for the
salt it contained, and thus swallowed the
money. But to our thinking it is more reos-
onaoie to suppose that the animal dissipated
