December 2. The Senate made a call
on the Secretary of the Treasury for the
amounts paid in 183 7-5 8-5 9-6 0-61, for
land suits in California. This relates to
Mr. Secretary Stautou.
Resolutions have been adopted making
inquiry into the arbitrary arrests made
in Delaware and Kentucky. On this
subject the Senate shows some pluck
the House shows none.
December 4. Mr. Wickliffe sought to
have an inquiry by the Judiciary, under
what law a military Governor had been
appointed for the District of Columbia.
The inquiry was not permitted. - The ap
pointment was clearly unlawful in that Dis
trict, though) the President has power to
appoint suli Governors in a State recov
ered from insurrection.
Many resolutions of a mere catch na
ture were offered by several eager gentle
men. ' ' '
December S. Mr. Stevens introduced a
bill to indemnify the President and his
Cabinet for arrests made, and to discharge
all prosecutions commenced. Mr. Yal
landigham very unwisely moved to re
reject the bill on tho first reading, which
motion failed ayes, 3t, nays,' 90. This
of course provoked its immediate passage,
which was done at once without discus
sion and v.ithont examination. . Ayes, 90 ;
nays, 45. This is a melancholy exhibit
of party power, and throws aside the
outward decencies of seeming consider
ation. . it the President had power to
make the arrests, he and those who act
ed under him needed no indemnity. If
he had no such power they may indem
nify him and his agents for the damages
recovered against them, but the Congress
cannot dismiss or forbid prosecutions.
Mr. Stevens professes to follow the acts
of the British Parliament, which have no
application here as precedents, for the
Parliament has all tho powers of legisla
tion and convention of the people. Our
Mr. Shcllabargcr was among the ayes. -
December 9. The House passed the
bill for dividing the State of Virginia
and admitting Western Virginia as a new
State. None of the members who urged
its passage pretended that it was consti
tutional, and three of them - distinctly
avowed that they sustained it as a revo
lutionary measure. That mode may re
turn to plague the inventors.

Nothing can more strongly show the
headlong purpose of the present Congress
than the vote just taken in Congress (H.
R ) for the admission of Western Vir
ginia as a new State. We do not siy
law passed for the admission of a new
State, for that is the proper language to
use when speaking of lawful acts. This
attempt to divide the State of Virginia is
a nullity is in utter disregard of the
Constitution, and is revolutionary. The
Constitution (IV, 3,) is explicit, that "no
new State shall be formed or erected
within the jurisdiction of any other State,
nor any State be formed by the junction
of two or more States or parts of States,
without the consent of the Legislatures
concerned, as well as of the Congress."
It is a melancholy instance of the servil
ity of men to party phrenzy, for none of
the members who thus voted to admit a
new State will pretend that the Consti
tution has been complied with, and if
they did so pretend they would not re-r-bi.e

Destroying Cause of the Rebellion.
If there is any one thing more absurd
than another in the passionate program
me laid down by tho extreme radical
party for the prosecution of the existing
contest, it is the obstinacy with which
they insist on making war against slavery
as a means to the restoration of the Un
ion. That the restoration of the Union,
lawfully accomplished, would involve the
ultimate extinction of slaveryno serious
student of our political history, we think,
will question. But that a war for the
extinction of slavery, no matter how suc
cessfully it may be pushed, can never
result in the restoration of the Union, is
easily demonairable. The more honest
advocates of such a war frankly admit
this truth", and do not shrink from the
avowal that iu order to achieve the im
mediate abolition of slavery they would
gladly see the Southern States reduced
to the relative condition of Poland or
Venetia, and the free "Nci-th degraded to
the office of a continental jailor. How
these people are to digest the vital ad
mission of the President in his Message,
that the general government has no juris
diction over the institution of slavery in
the States, is not easy to see.
L l i Lf n. .
. co oitcn nas it been
said and sung that ps slavery is the cause
of this great rebellion so tho destruction
of slavery must bring on tho suppression
of the rebellion, that a great many sensi
ble people have been dinned into accept
ing these twin propositions as covering
perhaps tho sum of the whole matter.
Now whether slavery be or be not fairly
indicted a3 the real and sole cause of the
Southern rebellion we shall not at this
moment attempt to consider. The ques
tion, however peremptorily and arrogant
ly it may be answered by such philoso
phers of history as the Tribuue, demands
a fullness of elucidation which it has not
yet received. But for our immediate
purpose we concede the point that slavery
was the sole determining as it certainly
was in no slight measure a chief exciting
cause of the great Southern revolt against
the Union. And conceding this we in
sist that precisely for this very reason it
is sheer madness to make war against
slavery in warring for the Union. When
ever in the history of mankind the origin
of a great war has lain in the institutions
or the convictions ofa people, the attempt
to destroy those institutions or to crush
those convictions has always resulted in
tremendous disaster to the party making
it. War is not a process of progress. It
is an assertion at the most, and in its best
light, of certain, principles cf authority,
or of certain e&tditions cf international
law; more commonly, and in its ordinary
aspects, it is a maintenance of certain
imperiled interests. It is in the nature
of war that to be successful it should deal
with facts amenable to the direct influ
ence of arms. The overthrow of armies
in the field, the disposition of certain
constituted authorities, are objects with
in the scope of its power. To alter the
opinions or to subvert the domestic insti
tutions ofa whole people are objects ut
terly beyond that scope'. If slavery be
the cause of theexisting "Tebc!Tio'ri,wc
can only hope for victory by mr.king war
not upon slavery, the arming cause, but
upon the rebellion, tho armed conse
quence. The past is full of lessons to us
in this matter. Since modern - Europe
fairly began to emerge from the transi
tional epoch of the feudal system two
sisantio wars have been carried on, as
our radicals propose taat tnc existing
war with the South should be, against
the causes in each case of the original
conflict. The war of Philip the Second
against the people of the Netherlands was
waged for the purpose of maintaining the
union of the Flemish provinces with the
Spanish crown ; and it was carried on by
its roj-aI mover precisely as the radicals
insist that the war against the South shall
be. Thilip, who believed in the Church
of Rome as devoutly as the radicals be
lieve in abolitionism, knew that the Prot
estant religion was the cause of the Flem
ish revolt. He looked upon Protestant
ism as the " sum of all villanics." Just
as the radicals exclaim, "Secession is in
the blood of the slaveholding cast, and
will never be expelled while slavery re
mains;" so Philip held that "revolt in
Holland would never be subdued while
heresy lived in those provinces." His
litters in the archives at Simancason this
subject bear, indeed, so remarkable a
resemblance to the current editorials of
the leading radical journals that we have
sometimes been half inclined to suspect
the latter of plagiarism. At least -they
may cry out upon Philip, as the French
wit did upon the ancients, " Confound the
fellows, they stole all our thoughts before
we were born." The " self-same mould"
produces " the self-same men."
Two generations of men, the accumu
lated wealth of the most industrious cities
of Europe, the glory of the SpaDi'sh em
pire, were sacrificed by the governmc-at
of Madrid in its fierce and fruitless at
tempt to end the Flemish war by extir
pating the Protestant heresy. Two cen
turies had not elipsed when the same
blunder, on a grander scale, wa3 repeat
ed. England made herself the soul of a
great European ccalition, which attemp
ted to end the wars of the French repub
lic by crushing the pernicious principle
of republicanism. Relatively to the tre
mendous forces hurled against her by
land and sea, France was scarcely strong
er thm the Confederate States may be
considered to be in relation to our own
n,:in?t her been earned on a:
government. irlJicr armies, its results
might well fceeu' very different.
Carried on as i was against the presum
ed cause of the War, against the institu
tions of the French people and their most
intimate political passions, it burns on
the page of history a bright and becom
ing commentary upon the pregnant words
of Lord Bacon : " Nothing doth make a
people so cling to their customs and in
stitutions as sudden and violent offer to
remove the same."
Is there noihicg better left for us in
this ' middle of, the" nineteenth eentury
than to parody the edicts of Philip es
tablishing the Council of Blood, and the
proclamation of the Duke of Brunswick,
threatening the abolition of the city of
Paris ? Xew York World. .....
A Good Sign.
SenatoU Lane, of Indiana, has moved
an inquiry by a Senate committee on the
propriety of abolishing the Department
of Agriculture. This Department is a
sheer humbug, although Mr. Lincoln
tells us that it has established a large
correspondence, and will be ready next
year to distribute seeds, plants and cut
tiugs. The Patent Office Department,
which grew up under electionering con
nivance, never did any good that was not
done before. It broke up the private
importation of seeds, and crippled our
agricultural journals. The seeds dis
tributed have always been of kinds well
known before. We challenge the nam
ing of a single kind. The Patent Office
Report has degenerated iuto an adverti
sing sheet and its knowledge is all drawn
from agricultural papers, except the
blunders and misstatements, which are
generally furnished by the writers them
selves from their own plentiful lack.
Buy Only What You Need Now.
A GREAT many people are led to buy
things at the stores from a fear that
goods will be much higher. This helps
to make things higher; and therefore, as
a matter of duty, you should not aid . in
raising prices. Much of the increase is
mere gambling. - At any rate, the prices
after a few months will be the settled
result of supply and demand.
The Shelbyvile Express.
A new paper has just issued at
Shelbyville, Richland county, with the
following announcement to the public:
" The Shi'l'uyvi'Io Express is a newspaper
for tbe people of Richland county. It is not
in the interest of any party, r.or is it mean'
to be identified with the interest of aiiv par
ty, b;-caue it will not be fettered. It will
not be Neutral for thut means-time serving
tfinidity. It will have very distinct opinions
on ail public questions eoimeeed wiili gov
ernment, whether Union, State, or Cuunty :
mid on the expression of opinions it will have
but one guide, a strict adherence to law. Ii
will support the Constitution and the Laws,
without regard to platforms or to party dog
Our readers wiU bo str-Hck with its
close resemblance to the standing an
nouncement of the Union'. .
; We hope the Express will have the
success its manly position deserves. '
This is another indication that the
people arc coming to demand an outspo
ken, independent public press, instead of
our using parry cries to facilitate itspi7
feriiij of the people's money.
An Ingenious Distinction.
The Evening Tost, which does not fail
to perceive the inconsistency between the
President's September aad his December
policy, accounts for it as follows :
" As commander-in-chief of the armies be
hurls against it the battle-xe, he chops it in
to pieces with his military arm, he decrees
that it is a support and means of the war,
aud as such shall no longer exist. All this
he has the most unquestionable right to do
but fearing that his military pronunciamento
may not be as effective as he desires, he re
news the assault as President. In the capa
city his power is restrained by constitutional
limits ; he is no longer the warrior, amenable
only to the code of nations; he is a simple
municipsd magistrate, bound by the staictest
rules, and be can do only what the law al
lows, or the representatives of the people au
thorize, He begs them, therefore, to procure
such an amendment of the Constitution as
shall enable the general government to coop
erate with the states in the gradual extinction
This is like the English bishop who
was also a justice of the peace. Getting
verv antrrv one day in the presence of
his butler, the bishop broke into a volley
of oaths. The horror-struck serving-
man respectfully reminded his master of
the unbecoming character of such an
exhibition. " I did not swear as a bish
op," he said, (i but as a magistrate."
" But, your reverence," returned the but
ler, " when the devil gets the magistrate
what will become of the bishop?" When
Mr. Lincoln swore to preserve, protect,
and defend the Constitution of the Uni
ted States he divided himself, it would
seem, into two parts, and took the oath
in such a manner that while it bound his
conscience as President he was free to
trample the Constitution under foot as
military commander. And this in a gov
ernment one of whose fundamental axi
oms is the subordination of the military
to the civil power! A7-. 11 World.
