C. F. JACKSON'S DECLARATION OF
: : IHDEPESDEJsiE. i
. In Ihb exercise of the rig't reserved to
Ihe people of Missouri by lb treaty tinder
which the United Slates acoaired Ihe tem
porary dominion of the courtt west of the
Mississiiji fiver, in trust fir ihe several
sovereign States afterwards lo be formed
out of ii, that people did, on he twelfth lay
of June, one thousand eighj hundred and
twenty, ' mutually agree to form and es
tablish a free and independent republic by
(he name of (he State of Mi'ouri." On
Ihe tenth day of August, eiglietn hundred
and twenty-one, the State viai duly admit
ted into the TTniun of the Uiited States of
America, under (he compact ailed (he Con-
without even rebuke Irom him, have ex
hibited brutality, scarcely credible lof
nation pretending to civilisation. Even
women, and children of tender age,. Iiaire
fallen victims to the unbridled license of
hit tinleeiing soldiery. He has avowedly
undertaken to make the civil bower subor
dinale lo the military; and with tbe despi
cable and cowardly design of thus protect
ing himself and his accomplices, by binding
the consciences of the unhappy victims of
his tyranny, he has exacted from peaceful
citizens, guilty' of no crime, sn oath to sup
port' his detestable Government. To crush
out even peaceful and lawful opposition to
it, he has forcibly and unconstitutionally
suspended the privilege of the writ of ha
beat corpus, and abridged the freedom of
speech and of the press, by subjecting in
nocent citizens to punishment for mere
opinion's sake, and by preventing the pub
lication of newspapers independent enough
lo expose his (reason to liberty
These manifold and human wrongs were
long submitted to in patience, and almost
in humili'y by the people of Missouri, and
their authorities. Even when the conduct
of the Lincoln Government had culmina
ted in an open war upon nsj those authori
ties offered to its military commander in
Missouri lo refer to the people of the State
lor decision he question of our separation
from a Government and nation Ihua openly
hostile to us. Those authorities relied on
the principles consecrated in the declaratioa
of Indepe idence of the United States, that
to secure the rights of citizens, ''govern
ments are instituted among men, deriving
their just powers from the consent of the
governed, that, whenever any form of gov
ernment becomes destructive of these ends
it is Ihe right of the people to alter or abol
ish it, and to institute new government
laying its foundation on such principles
and organizing its powers in such form, as
lo them shall seem most likely lo effect their
safety and happiness." Missouri having

We have the authority of theHon.Thsd
detis Stevens, Chairman cf the Committee
of Ways and Means in the House of Rep
resentatives, that the expenses of the Gov
ernment are l'otthe rate of one million two
hundred and fifty thousand dollars per day.'
Weil might Mr. Stephens declare, as he

miitee, but that it is largely shared by the
people throughout Ihe country. It may be
that the Government paper money tn be is

I' the scale upon which our public expen-
dilores are going forward is well calculated

If there was a reasonable probability that
the war expenses would be brought to a
close within any period near at hand, their
burdens would be more tojerabl, but with
the expenditure, according to Mr. Stevens'
estimate, of $456,250,000 during the first
year or lhe war, we shall have but just be
gun to feel its oppressive bearing upon the
country. A million and a quarter per day,
will rapidly rell up a publio debt, to ,pay
the interest of which will require a tax up
on property and upon inccmes, to which
the law Just enacted by Congress will bear
but a faint proportion.
There are people who believe in prose
cuting the war, even .through a period of
twenty years, if the South cannot be soon
er subjugated. This would impose a pub
lic debt of about ten thousand millians; a
And here it may not be amiss to remind
our readers that Wbeu -some two months
ago we estimated (he expenses of the war
not less then $200,000,000 per annum,
(we had no doubt at the time that the es
timate was too low,) it was pronounced a
gross exaggeration by some of the Repub
lican psners, which said . it was evidently
designed to discourage the prosecution of
tne war. now their own officer places the
n jurea at more than double the amount.
