If thero bo something In the Intrlntio
nature of Carlim, tbat makes it such
anoljectof dread among thoio Vfbo ara
accustomed to weigh camel with their of.
fret, wo are constrained to ask ourselves,
is Cwiarlim so posltlvoin Its naturo that
it admits not of a greater or lets degreu?
Could It bo posiible that wo might bnve
a Ctoiariim of our own ? If poislble, Is It
probable that it exists amongst u7 Tbat
tbo question.
If tbe descent from tho unlrorml to
tbe particular, from wbat a thing might
bo to what it really Is, gives us an It-
tight to tho postiblo extent of any evil,
wo might do worse than look at Cwinritm
as it is in its greater magnitude or as It
appear in its relation to tbo higher de
partment of tho state. Here we havo the
evil full-fledged. Let us dcicend and tee
if we can't diicover an embryo In tho pre
tentions of these who llro in tho minor
oClces of tbo state.
A desire to conttitute tho three depart
ments of government in tbe will of tbe
rnnn Is simply tbo most notorious as
sumption of power that man can conccivo.
lie sets himself up as tho dictator of tho
law, tho will of tbo people and
thn supremo arbiter of every
thing that concerns tho dostlny of
a nation. Such n decpotitm has exitted.
That it produced ovilt, hittory and tho
evidenco of man severely att.-i. ffm
produced her Neroes ; England produced
hers; Franco can at least boast of one.
and soon with ovary nation that hat over
hi depotl(m at tho heini of tho state.
Ihe many and diverts elements that
constilulo human naturo buvr, cacti ono
its own, as many and diverse objucts to
wards which thoy continually tend. To
doubt that them lead us into evils would
be rejecting tho tettlmony of experience
itself, for ovory action it tho resi'lt of
torno internal agency that for
the timo boldt tway ovor tho will, Thut
tboro is bard to bo found a man who bat
to tubdued thoie dementi", tbat hii
action it at all times uniror'ii. At ono
moment wo cry out for this ; the next and
wo thirst for that. Lilt'o do wo wonder
than that men ara continually ondetvur
Itig to obtain that which they havo not
and vice versa, diiregarding or lessoning
in value that which thoy huve. Tho tnxln
olject for which we ail labor is wealth.
Homo men thlrtt for power, but this it
sought only as a ruoditim by which thoy
may obtain riches. Soma again, nvplro to
fame, but femo begots powor and
power riches. And to tho ono
molivo impols us all, and tho final
u)t of our uxWlanc W n.U.(-, j o.o no
qulsiton of woallb. We doubt not but
such unlimited dptiros have tholr concom
itant evils, and us long as thoy can bu
appealed without impoverishing our fol
io wmon nro compurativoly harmless. Hut
what shall wo say of tbat ambition which
spurns ovory consideration of circutmlunce,
and doiirei alono an absoluto dominion
ovor mankind Turn is tbe ambition
that ragot in tho heart of
tho tyrant and novcr was it to
fully manifettcd hi when Caligula wltbod
tbo Koman poopl had but ono head tbat
ho might strike it oil' with a blow. Thu
country is in distance to day that can
boast of a record as bloody and brutnl a
ever stained thu archives of I'nian Homo.
Her history is written on tho very color of
her flair for ovorwboro her dominion hns
boon assorted in slaughter and maintained
In blood. European history prosonts tuch
bloody spectacles of tyranny that the mind
it bewildered In Its conceptions of tho
awful and tho torrlblo liut why thus 7
ware men decieved? Tho vory powor
that proforics to be the weapon of juiticoi
the shield of poaco and thu har
binger of prosperity, gives ittolf
tho lie nt ovory movo ui n.
administration, and rules but to oxorcise
tbo despotism of ill will. The thoory of
government impliet subnotion : but that
Hilt subjection should d.ller from slavery
in namo only, while tho ctienco romaioed
tbu same, nevor existed in tho minds of
thoe who llrit framod a coda of laws.
Thnt mn was bom to obey, tbcro Is no
doubt; but inutmuch at this obedionco
was ibu only means by which ho could
attain the true state of life below, it could
nuvur havo occurred to his mind that a
voluntary submission towanii a gixio
to bo obtained would ultimately involvu
the alienation of ull those rights
and privileges wbich are so closuly inter
woven with hit life that thoy are the
ciiidillo tine qua nori of his existence
Oucieiy would not exist If man did not
make a sacrifice. And thu mug Intelli
gence which tolved the tnyilory of tbo
toclal ttato found in thli very solution
alio a remedy for any uvlls that might
result therefrom. Did not man percnivu
lb danger of craating a superior? Car
tainiy, but did he not also perceive
that when that creation failed
e..iAii I.. ,
u.u., ... .minon, in mm was
invuited the power to nuutu mo came
It was never decreed that one msn should
wield an absolute power over bit fellow
man. We mty be governed but our will
it tbe law. Wa may havo a uovernor, hut
hu is our instrument that moves hi wo i
ply tbo force, The government that trici
to mould tho manner! of a people ii del
potlc. "l!o virtuout and you ihall
freo" tays Plato. Tho tyrant says "give
mo tbe government and I'll mako your
Itws," In every country the laws derive
tbeir cfllcacy from tho poopl
This will always be tho cats
when tbey afo adapted to tho manners of
the people. Ooo of tbo wiictt of tho an
cient legiilalon, having organized a rede
of laws for tbo Athenians, significantly
romsrknd thut if they wero not the bet
laws poulblo, thoy wero at !eat tbe best
tbe Athenians wore captblo of receiving.
Tbe history of governments in the pas,
even from the first commonwealth of an
tiquity down to our day, gives auplt evi
dence of tbt truth of this assertion. If
nations have passed from ono form of gov
ernment to another, 'til bccauio
men aro continually tanking
noveltv. ltepuhllcs havo do-
g-neratod into monarchies and mon
archies again into despotism If ono ba
not Included in tho other.
Wbon tbo morality of a country be
come! relaxod the laws at a nccctrary
consequence become neglected. A kind
of lethargy settles upon tho nation and
the people awake but to find tbomiolvet
tn chains. It is evident to thoio who
havs ovor taken lufQctenl timo to study
tho cauiol that ted to tho dilruptions of
governments in tbo pt tbat
tbo ovil instinct of ambition never
manifests itsolf to fatally as wbon
an nation is plunged In an abyss of vice.
This is tho timo when evil men sel2o
upon tho helm ol tho stato, and, intox
icated with their success, Involvo them
selves and tholr country in tho gunoral
shipwrock. Qod lorbid that such a
dangor thould over threaten tho existence
of our freedom I That thero Is vice
amongit us thore Is no doubt. It his
worked itsolf into every department of
the ttato. Tho vory mon who should
labor tor tho good of tbo nntion
and tho wolfaro and happiness of
tho people, havo becomo to corrupt
that tbey havo forgot tholr duty and know
no Inlorcstt but their own. Suroly "tbe
corruption of tho country has boiled and
bub led till It list o'erun tho ttow." Such
a state of things Is deplorable and In every
calm mind mustcrcuto approbemioni as
to what it may loud. Hut it It with tho
people to exterminate thoio vlpert who
gloat upon tho life-blood of tbo state.
Every eject has its cause and ho who would
destroy the effect must traco it back to thu
buuico and vVi-n nip tbe ovil in tbo bud.
Many causes may bu aiiigned for the cx-
liltcnco of tuch vico amonte the publia
men of the country. 'Tit a vait field for
speculation and where tho thoory of ono
might end, that of another might find a
boginnini;. For ui it is enough to know
that a more determined action on tho part
of constituents throughout the country
in mHk ng their representation more rry'
rrsenfafire would bo ono qrcat m re to.

tingled out ly a community to represent
their rights ho It ttrictly rcrponilblo for
ovory fiction tbat appertaini to bis official
capscity. Ho is not bimtolf ho is thoii s,
and as such thould pursuo tho line drawn
by them, 'Tit unfortunate onough that

departments of tho str.te, but when n
modified typo ippcnrs among tbo minor
olllcos of tlio country, 'tis high time thtt
men should look to tholr immediato in
terests. When ono or two men or a rliss
of men try to monopolize tho ofllces of
the city nnd county, to the exclusion of
others equally as competent, what are we
to infer? Is it Cnosaristic? We
say it Is. Whon men hold

round them tho fragments of partes that
cnnatlluto those monf;rol bodies called
cliques, and theso moving in tho orbit of
favor resist ovorybody and ovorything
that would displace tho center of attrac
tion. Tho election comes, thoso olumolts
dlstributo themiolvos nround tho pnl,
and what influence cannot accomplish
monoy will purchoie. It it a wonder
then that hurnblo merit it shut out from
al tho oflluoi ol tho country ? What ihall
bo our conclusion if tuch a stato of things
continue? This nnd no other: That
ultimately all tho oflicct of tho country
will be convortod into hereditary Institu

Wo bavo coma to a nico period of our his
