Mr. Pugh and his Coming Address.
The Hon. George E. Pugh haa consented
to address the people of tl)iiitj upoa the
proenl conditionof aflaira,at Smith & Nixon'i
Ball, this areaing. , That Mr. Pugh will
present any other than a party view of the
case Is cot probable, if any one roayjadga
by h's late speech in the Senate. Hia legis
lative course, thus far, docs not indicate that
bis nind lias penetrated beyond party ex
igencies, or contemplated any thing more
than party results. To raise the temperature
throughout the non slareholding States
high enough to burn out the Republican
Tarty, Is the policy indicated by those with
whom he co-operated ; and it is not prob
able that his exertions will be directed to
ward a more rational enterprise. He will,
therefore, seek to give an aspect of dignity
and importance to the doings in South Car
olina; and while be professes great lore of
the Union, and calarges upon the necessity
tit its preserTation, will insist that its con
tinuance depends upon some concession or
other lo be made by the "North" to the
"South" as an inducement to the latter to
refrain from going out any further than it
If the nation were really in danger, such
a course would be trifling with the public
interest and the public mind, and would
deserve serious and severe condemnation.
If Mr. Pugh believed that the nation was in
danger, we have respect for his character to
lead us to think that be would not trifle at
co important an exigency. Hut the nation
it not in danger ; flie peril is to party, not to
national bonds of union; there is no especial
demand for self-sacrificing patriotism; and
therefore it will be in order to permit Mr.
Pugh to go on in the old parly path, to pur
sue the old party ends, and revel in that
vocabulary of jihrases of terrible sound with
which it is proposed to frighten the people of
the Union into doing some thing very des
iderate, though what exactly it is. to be does
We sincerely hope that Mi Pugh will
have no prescription to present for the im
provement of the health of the Union; and
"this : frit, because tho Union is not an in
valid ; tecontlly, because that however dras
tically tbe North may be pbysiced, there are
no indications that it will thereby be ren
dered more acceptable to the South; and
thirdly, becaute every plan that has been
put forth bos been but a combination of the
ridiculous and the impracticable : seeming
only to exhibit the emptiness of its author
for service in any real exigency, his want
of knowledge of mankind, and big utter
destitution of all just ideas of the nature
and limits of Covert, men t in general, and of
our form of national polity in particular.
Than in them political quackery certainly
never bad a more perfect exemplification. '
Tbe political career of Mr. Pugh is now
for the present drawing to a close; and it
is probable that this is the Inst opportunity
be will enjoy to address his constituents at
home, before the cldae of his official term.
On such an occasion it will be happy for him
if be shall be able to leave upon the minds
of his fellow-citizens the impression that he
has raised himself above the level of the
mere partisan, and has become, if not a
statesman, at least a sound and sagacious
politician. Important party changes are
imminent. They will follow closely upon
the heels of tj President agitations, by
which they are foreshadowed. Before the
time when be will be able to gather for a
new ascent, bis party antecedents will have
become unavailable. Just views of the
Constitution, of the powers of the Govern
toent, of tbe duties of the Executive, of the
demerits of the authors of this agitation',
and rational prognostics as to its finality,
will be as creditable to him as it will be ac
ceptable to the community.
The President and his Treachery.
Perhaps it is not unprecedented in tbe his
toiy f the world, but it is certainly un
usual to find tbe bead of a Government tha
chief executive officer of a nation, placed in
power by tbe consent of its people, and
with no rival to dispute his right to govern
deliberately preparing the way for those
who seek to dissolve the national tenure
and overthrow the Constitution. To, find
Buch a state of circumstances in a country
whose people claim to be the most enlight
ened in political affairs of any in the world,
'and to possess Ue most parental and per
fect of all known forms of Government, is
assuredly a thing not eaxy to parallel.
Yet ihjs is the aspect which the United
States of America presents at this moment
to the ronlemplation of the civilized world.
The President of this Union whether
through utter imbecility or utter dishonesty
it is difficult to say is practically a traitor:
using, apparently without Bbume and with
out conscience, his official authority to strip
tbe Government of its defenses, and leave it
open to acts of violence on the part of those
who are planning its dissolution. It is
not necessary to refer to facts in this
connection. Tbey are widely known and
stand - undisputed. The national arms
are being removed from tbe peaceful North
and placed unprotected in the very localities
where disaffection is known to exist ; and in
all those places where there is the apiear
ance of an organization against the public
tranquility, the national defences have been
eft te fall into the hands of the insurgents
whenever it shall suit their convenience to
enter tipou the possession. This has been
done by the express cunimand of the Presi
dent. There have been not acts or omission
merely, but acts of cominiuioo. The State
is being dismantled the gates of the strong
holds have been left unguarded, and the
enemy invited to enter : and. this in spit of
the general disgust of tbe people, and the
most orgeat remonstrances on the part of his
There is a time wbea party spirit should

pnrposes. upon tbe summit of that political
pyramid which was raised by patriots and
statesmen, and for which we demand the ad'
miration of tbe world, there sits a traitor--a
being who, if his acts are Indicative of his
intentions, would williagly tint that pyra
mid to fragments, and scatter far and wide
its dif honored rains. - J
So unaccustomed are we to think of
treachery at the head of the government of
the people, that we have no standard by
which i( may be measured. The mind does
not readily take in the whole of its enormity.
The word traitor has been so often used in
party senBes, that it is inadequate to de
scribe the crime of him who, entrusted with
tbe most sacred post in the governmental
edifice, takes advantage of his position. the
more effectually to apply the torch of the
incendiary. This difficulty, however, is but
temporary. Time will enable all of us to
arrive at a just conception of events and
their bearings ; and the people of the United
States will not fuil to do the most ample
justice to tbe memory of our first Presiden
The Ohio Public Works.
The total deficit of the Public Works for
the past year is $122,733. There are some
items expended on former" appropriations,
and claimed as not strictly chargeable to
tbe current year, but not more, if as much,
much as similar items every year. The bur
den has become so great that it throws a
heavy responsibility on the party having the
contrel of the State, and one which will en
dunger their supremacy unless they can fur
nish satisfactory reasons for retaining it; for
it is skown by offers made during the hut
three years, that tbe State can relievo her
self of this burden bjf sellinj or leasing the
There can be but one excuse for retaining
them ; that is tbe public interest. But to
tax one part of the State to transport the
commodities of another part, is not public
interest. The taxation, only, is public. Tho
interest is private.
If the Public Works sustained themselves,
they would be one of the public interests.
W hen they do not, they becotne a local in
terest; and the taxes which they draw from
the whole State are expended for private
If the caaals were a public interest, why
should the views of the residents upon them
and of the people of other parts of the State
differ so directly in regard to the interest of
the public in tbem? When a representative
from a canal district talks of the public in
terest in the canals, be means the interest of
those who use them for the transportation of
their products. That is his idea of public
interest. And that they who have no use of
them should pay taxes to keep them up, is
his idea of public spirit,
If a law were passed that one-half of the
people of tbe State should be taxed to pay a
part of the transportation of the wheat and
corn of the other half, it is probable that in
stead of being called public interest, it would
be called a public robbery; and instead of
exciting public spirit, it would create a se
But what is the difference between paying
taxes directly on the price of transportation,
and paying it on the means of transporta
tion ? No body can discover any.
People onsthe canals, and 'even in this
city, thtnk they have got a good thing in
the canals, which benefit them, while the
State at large helps foot the bill; and that
they had better hold on to it. It is good tor
look out for number one, tuf it will gener
ally be found that correct policy will do this
better than any unfair advantage. All they 1
get by this course is canals in notoriously
bad condition, rapidly deteriorating, their
business rapidly declining, and themselves
taxed for their quota of the deficiency;
while under tbe management of private in
terest, "the canals would be restored, their
business increased, and their taxes light
, - . i :, ,i . ... i
think their interest is the public interest.
A great many people talk as if the State
Lould hojd the canals, in order to keep up
competition with Railroads. This is a new
idea of the public interest, that a State should
compete with the business of its own citi
zens, and crush out their capital. If this is
republican principle of government, it
miflit be vastly extended, until every busi
ness man should be kept to low prices by
State competition, at the public expense.
Another novel idea is that canals can
better compete with railroads under State
than under private management. Since
whu has official control become so much
more efncienJhan private management? It
has been thought heretofore that every man
could best manage his own business. If the
State can do it better, let its province be
extended into all kinds of business, and in
dividual sovereignty be abolished. '
The canals are not competing with rail
roads now. The State is merely footing up
$100,000, or so, deficiency. There is no com
petition. Nor will there be, until they go
into private hands. If the canals are needed,
tbey will sustain and improve themselves. If
tbey do not, it is evidence conclusive that
they are not needed.
business men, experienced in canal busi
ness, believe mat private management can
make them profitable. It would at least re
lieve the State from the taxation, and poli
tics from a corrupting element. The worst
that can happen, in case the decline of the
canals continue, is, that they will be aban
doned to those immediately interested
tbem. If neither business nor private inter
est will, sustain tbem, thej can go down
without being missed. There is no reason
why every transportation-tub should
stand on its own bottom; and the State
should relieve itself of this entangling al
liance. The Bepublicans lmv the Democrats al
ready committed to the disposal of the
canals. If they present an efficient measure
this winter, the Democratic members of
Legislature will have to support it, or show
that they were insincere. If they do not,
the Democrats will make it the leading feat
ure of their policy, and will keep tbem busy
with it through the whole session, and haps,
carry a measure through la spit of
Republican majority ; or if not, will put
onus of the Public-Works deficit on them.

The Missouri Compromise Line—No Dodging.
After an agitation which was forced upon
the country by the repeal of this saored
compromise . of thirty years,' standing an
'agitation which has done more to 'alienate
the people oCthe nation, and divide them
by sectiondl lines, than all other causes since
the foundation of the Government, and
which now threatens the dissolution of the
Union, its restoration is now advocated as
the only means of saving the Union, by the
very politicians who broke it dowSJ and
who have drawn their political existence
ever since from the agitation which grew
out of it. i
So humble a confession from a great po
litical party, that its policy hits brought ruin
upon the country, and so complete a justifi
cation of the course of its opponents, is a
new thing in the history of politics and of
popular Governments. The theory of mon
archy !b that the King can do.no wrong.
In this country we shift the infallibility to
the people, and we talk of the voice f the
people being tbe voice of God. But here is
a great party confessing that it has doue
wrong, and professing a contrite desire to
make reparation by restoring tho compro
mise Which it violated.
But if this is sincere; if it is intended in
good faith to support the restoration of his
compromise, to settle the present dangers ; if
it is not a mere partisan stratagem, to be
supported because it iB thought that the
other party will refuse it, let the proposition
be divested of all political trickery and put
in a practical shape. It dees need an amend
ment to the Constitution to restore the Mis
souri Compromise. It existed thirty years
by act of Congress. Nobody ever doubted
its constitutionality. To declare it uncon
stitutional was a part of the trick to break
it, when it was thought that a stronger game
could be played. As a part of the trick is
confessed, let a clean breast be made, and the
whole game be thrown up.
No honest man doubts the constitution
ality of the Missouri Compromise. It is
probable that it could pass the present Con
gress. This is the only practicable shape
In which it can be proposed. To establish it
by amendment of tbe Constitution requires
the assent of two-thirds of tho States, and it
is not at all likely that it could be had.
South Carolina, and other States which are
determined to secede, wonld probably not
vote on the question, therefore they would
be counted against it. It is not at all likely
that a majority of the Southern States
would go for it.
The ears of their people are still tingling
with the harangues of their politicians
against the Missouri Compromise as a wrong
inflicted upon the South. ,
It is by r.o means probable that it coul
carry even half of the Northern States. The
Democrats have submitted to political sacri
fice to abolish it because it was claimed to be
a wrong upon tke South, Their wounds are
yet too fresh, and hair of the same dog will
be too severe an application.
The people at large will not relish the offer
of a second trial of a broken compromise,
and that, too, from the violators.
Even if it could pass two-thirds of the
States, the constitutional form requires
time. In the form of a constitutional
amendment, the proposition is utterly im
practicable. In Congress, if the South and
the Democracy would go for it, it could be
passed in a fortnight. To talk of it by
amending the Constitution, is mere trilling
with the public danger. It is keeping the
word of compromise to tbe ear, when
nothing but partisan stratagem 13 intended,
in order to gain some advantage -in the
record, and to affect to put the responsibility
on another party.
Any body who honestly desires to restore
the Missouri Compromise, knows that it is
constitutional for Congress to-do it. Any
Democrat who sincerely wishes to restore it,
knows that if the Democracy in Congress
support it, it can be passed. And we take it
that any man of good sense knows that to
propose it aa a constitutional amendment, is
merely introducing another abstraction into
politics, merely to dodge behind.
Thb Enquirer labors to prove that if Mr.
Douglas should now advocate the restora
tion of the Missouri Compromise-line, it
would not be inconsistent with his previous
As our Hiberniun friends say: "An ye
may well say that!" "The divil a lie there 1"
If tbe line was as crooked ai a ram's born,
be could go for it without being inconsistent
with bis previous record. It is the conveni
ent of bis record that be can go for the Mis
souri Compromise or against it, and still be
'consistent with bis record; and, for and
against apy thing else, without the least in
