of your commuiiicaf ion of the ISth ul'imo. pro
poandinz to mo certain questions touching the sub
ject of a Prohibator.y Liquor Law.
To your first inquiry. I reply, that the Supreme

cur in the doctrirc, that the Legi?'aiire ean ":.'er
cise nil law-making power not expressly forbidden
by the S!ate or Federal Cons'i'ution. I'hder thi
construction. I believe the Legislature have author
ity to control the manufacture and site of spirit
oua liquors; but in the use of th it pawer. it must
be obvious that a. law might be passed, which, in
its details, would be a m"nilVst v:olition of the
Constitu'ion. and hence th impossibility ofr
swering your question distinc'ly, without seeing
the esact terms of the proposed law.
As to the second point in the iDouirv. it must be
very cletr that a law. cbns'ifu'ional in itst-lf. -J
would not be ren lered otherwise by allowing the ,
people to decide by vote whether the Legislature
should repeal i: or not, no matter what that vot3
To your second inqniry I answer that T sincere

willia.,?, as I have alwsys been, to sanction any
measure to miiigate. and, if posible. entirely re
move the vioe. but I c irnot plale mypelf to sanc

referred to in your itterrog itori s. having received
a judicial dbterraiur.tiun by the highest Courts of

bet-n recognized by the Supreme Court of tho Uni

of s first decision, a'hese Cour'shaving afEiincd
tho constitutionality of a prohibatoiy law, and be
ing of the highest authority. I believe, upon prin
ciple and auhority, such a law to te eorstitutional:
an I ils constitutionality, in my opinion, would not
be affected by a submission of its repeal to a vote
of tho people.
Everv measure cf moral or po'iticnl reform, sanc
tioned by the representatives of the people, within
the limiis of the Constitution, should receive my
official sanction. The expediency and pror,riey of
such laws are for the people, through their repre
sentatives ; and their will, constitutionally declar
ed, should be respected by tho Executive. If the
people demand, and their representatives enact
such a law: their will should not be resisted by the
ox rjiso of the veto power a power purely conser
vative, and only to bo exercised in caseseleurly un
constitutional, or exh'bLing indubitable evidence
of hasty, injurious ar.d irperfect legislation. Such
being my views of offleial duty in the premises,
should the Lcgv-slaturc, the cons itutional exponents
of popular will, eaict such a law. it would, in .the

There is an evident determination on the
pirt of the Administration ,lo plunge us into a
w tr with Spain. The Washington ' Union of

buec i.ieers for that is the proper term, and,
with se ireely the shadow of an excuse, take
possession ol Cuba, sinydy becmse we desire
it, and will ill another slave State to the con
f e iercy. The Washington correspondent of
tha Journal of Cammr-:, always reli ible when
foreshadowing the action of the Administra
tion, siys, "there is reason to suppose that the
President will send to Congress after a week
or two, a Message about our relations with
Spain firoposiJig uostile measure. The tone
of the President's Black Warrior Message of
the 11th of March baa been constantly main
tained in the Union, and,' therefore, it is be
lieved that, the Union represents the President's
views and purposes when it promises to urge
ths immediate blockade of the Cuban Ports,
upon the refusal of the Spanish to afford ra
paration for the alleged "piratical outrage"
upon the Black Warrior. Thai the demands
of Mr. Socle are rej ected, there, can be no
doubt. Hence, it is suppose! that we shal!
have a sequel to the Messige of the ldth of
March, and in a mora definite manner. The
Messige of the. 1 1th of March proposed that
provisional powcia be given to the President.
The nouse Committee on foreign Affairs have
declined noticing this proposition, or the mes
sage itself in any way. The President will
next make his poposition, it is thought, defi
nite and specific."

to know the fact, steles that ccrt-'otds of these
huge volumes are traversing the country .in
ever- direction, free,' to say nothing of the
lesser stu Tsailing under the franking privilege
of members of Co.igress. And still, in spite
of the reinonstr?nces and even threats of the

beciuse the present system dots pot pay ex
penses, but never thinking'of the propriety of
cutting down or tibo'isliitrg their odious and
unjust franking privilege.

"At the adjournment of the Legislature,
Bigler stock was d.cidedly lielow par. "The
most intelligent Democrats admitted that, so

party is disgusted with him, and thousands of
them, from present indications, will not sup
port liiiii. It is only the portion of them
that c:n jswallow him without an uneasy retch

rule the State of Pennsylvania has passed for
ever, an 1 that here liter m n of ci ancter and
ability will be sclecte I for that important duty.
Tha'interes's of tho people n"d the character

of preparing lor a graud Barnburner demonstra

A Cariots Dining EiJ!.
We learn from a London paper that Profes
sor Owen was recently entertained at dinner in
the garden of the Crystal Palace at Sydenham,
in the modle of an Ignanadoa. The animal in
whose mold the dinner was given was one of
the former inhabitants of Sussex, England,
several of bis bone3 having been found near
Horsham. His dimensions have been kept
strictly within tbe limits cf an anatomical
knowledge. . The length from the -snout to the
cad of tbe tail was Go feet: be was 12fcet high:
the circumference of bis body was 2 "i feet ; and
the girth of bis fore leg fi feet 0 inches.
Twenty one gentlemen -dined comforttbly
wit'uin the interior of the creature, and Pro
fessor Owen sat in bis bead as a substitute for
