GOVERNOR EIGLHR.S LETTER.
- IlARTa-rpi. Try G- 1354.
G"itTem'a: I have been honored by the receipt
of your communiaation f the ISth iil'imo. pro
poandine to mo certain qaesMons touching the sub
ject of a Prohibatory Liquor Law.
To your first inquiry. I reply, that the Supreme
Court" of th". State have reea'cdlvKeld. and I con
cur in the doctrine, that the Legislature can oxer
oise all law-making power not expressly forbidden
by the S;.ate or Federal Cois'iut:on. Under thii
construetion. I believe the Legislature have; author
ity to control the matiuf.ic'nre and sile of ppirit
ous liquors; but in the nse of th it power, it puMt.
be obvious that a law miht be pts-;od. which, in
its details, would be a nunifort v:olation of tt;e
Constitution, and henca th imposdbiiity ofar
swering your question dUtinc'ly, without see:nj
the exact terms of the proposed law.
As to the- second point in the inquiry, it must be
very cleir that a law. constitutional in itself,
would not be ren lered otherwise by allowing the
people to decide by vote whether the Legislature
should repeal it or not, no matter what that vote
To your second inquiry I answer that T sincere
ly deplore tho evils of intemporanoe. and urn no"
willing, as I hsfvo alwsys been, to sanction any
measure to miiigate. an 1, if possible, entirely re
laove the vi-;e. but I car not pladf mypeif to sana
tion a law, the details of which I have not sen.
The terms of th Consi:ut:on aiid oath of ola -e
would scc-m to forbid this course on the prt of an
Executive. He should be free to judga of the cor
stitntiona'ity and wisdom of a propose I law after
having fully examined andconsi lersd i:s provision.
Very respeetfiiliy, your obdient.

Gentlemen Your commuuia-ition in ref-rence
to a proLibaiory law bus been leccived. and in re
ply, i say that tha corft5tu'i,.r.a'ity of a prohibi
tory law, similar in it3 essential features to tho one
referred to in your itterrogatorii.-a. having received
a judicial determination by the highest Courts of
several of our ?i.?9 iia.te. nsd the pr-ncipl htng
bet-n reaonized by tho Supreme Court of tho Kni
tod States. I am relieved from the responsibility
of a first decision. These Courts, having affirmed
tho constitutionality of a prohibatoiy law, and be
ing of th highest aulboiity. I believe, upon prin
ciple and authority, suah a law to 1 e constitutional:
anl it constitutionality, in my opinion, would not
bo aifceted by a submission of is rcp-aal to a vote
of the people.
Every measure of moral crpo'itieal reform, sanc
tioned by the representatives of the people, within
tho limi!s of tho Constitution, should receive my
official sanction. The expediency anil pronrie'y of
such laws are for the people, through their repre
sentatives ; aad their will, constitutionally declar
ed, should be raspactad by tho Executive. If the
people demand, and their representatives enact
suah a law: their will should not be resisted by the
ox -riso of the veto power a power purely conser
va'.ive and only to bo exaraised in c ascsolearly un
constitutional, or exh'Hi Jng indubitable evidence
of hasty, injuriou.i and ir perfect legislation. Such
being my views of ofli;ial duty in the premises,
should the Leslatura, the cons itutional exponents
of popular will, eri ict such a law. it would, in .the
event of my election, receive the Exoautive sana
tion. Yours, very respectfully,

the Journil vf Conimpr-4?, alw sys 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 proposing aostile measure. The tone
of the President's Black Warrior Message of
the 11th of March has been constantly main
tained in the Union, and,' therefore, it is be
lieved th it the Union represents the President's
views and purposes when it promises to urge
thi immediate blockade of the Cuban .Ports,
upon tha refusal ol' the Spanish to afford ra
paration for the .alleged "piratical outrage"
upon the Black Warrior. That the demands
ol" Mr. Socle are rej ;cted, there can be no
doubt. Hence, it is suppose! that we sha.1!
have a sequel to tbe Messige of the 14th of
March, and in a more definite manner. The
Messige of the. 11th of March proposed that
provisional poweis be given to the President.
The House Committee on foreign Affairs have
declined noticing this proposition, or the mes
sage itself in any way. The President will
next make his position, it is thought, - defi
nite and specific."

to knr-w the fact, st.'fes thai cart-Ionds of these
huge volumes are traversing the country in
every direction, free, to say nothing of the
lesser -stu;T sailing under the franking privilege
of members of Coitgresa. And still, in spite
of the reiuonslrpnces and even threats of the
people, these members of Congress are con
triving schemes to raise the rites of postage
beciuse the present system does pot pay ex
penses, but never tfcinking'of the propriety cf
cutting down or ubo'ishing their cnlious and
unjust franking privilege.

"At the adjournment of the Legislature,
Bigler stock was d.eidedly Indow par. "The
most intelligent Dimorrats admitted that, so
far as svi opinion could be formed at present.
Pollock, s chance for an election nre decidedly
in the ascend int. The fiet is. Bigler's own
party is disgusted with him, and thousands of
them, from present indie ttions. will not sup
port him. It is only the .t.Wfr portion of them
that can jswallow him without an uneasy retch
ing. We trust that the day for such men to
rule the State of Pennsylvania has passed for
ever, an i that here titer mn of character and
ability will be selecte I for that important duty.

A Cariors Dining Ei1!.
We learn from a London paper, that Frofes
sor Owen was recently entertained at dinner in
the garden of the Crystal Palace at Sydenham,
in the modle of an Ignanadon. The animal in
whose mold the dinner was jriven was one of
the former inhabitants of Sussex, England,
several of his bones having been found near
Horsham. His dimensions have been kept
strictly within tbe limits tf an anatomical
knowledge. . The length from the snout to the
end of the tail was 80 feet; be was 12 feet high :
the circumference of his body was '1') feet; and
the girth of bis fore leg G feet 0 inches.
Twenty one g-entlemen dined comfortably
within'the interior of the creature, and Pro
fosse r Owen sat in his head as a substitute for
CSe-ial D-r-ftotr-y or"ci4rll Cotiy.
