It is easier to note tne bietiry of the, Re
tublieaot'party and tbeoriie upon its destiny
(ban predict with any degree of certainty
our future as a nation. Pity tbat tbe nil
men may do should live after them. It has
been thought by many good men who differ
rrou tbe leaders of that party, that, having
gloated qpon their ' subdued enemies; tbir
coffeisfilled from their stores; hating be
come satiated with, blood and spoils ; hav
ing, as they claim, exterminated Slwry
now by them admitted to bare been the ori
gin and moTing oauie of all 'our troubles
they would eease their work of destruo--tion,
and unite with those who might have
differed from thorn in efforts to bring back
the goTernment to an., .ariministraiioa tof
delegated power. Such, boWerer, Is not tiie
aim of the Republican party. It never has
been the purpose of their loaders to admin
ister it as banded down to us by its framers.
Their purpose is consolidation, subversion,
destruction. The three departments o f the
Government the Exeoutiro, Judioial and
Legislative though distinct and separate
one from the other, are all sought to be ex
ercised by Congress in utter disregard to
the fundamental principle of delegated pow-
er. xne Jeoiaratton or pnnoipies . wuioo
the framers of our government gave to the
world in their protest to the Parllmont of
England, when that body sought to quarter
soldiers in Boston, tbe . better to foroe Sub
mission to their .taxation of the colonies, so
hiehlv eulozisedby ' Lord Chathak in that
body, enunoiates tbe true theory of govern
raent. It anserts that " In all free States the
" constitution isflxed; and as the supreme
" legiilature derives its power and authority
" from the Constitution, it cannot ovecleap
" the bounds of it. without destroying its
, ' own foundation, " This doctries is just
as applicable now as then. It is the doo
trine of our fathers of 1 7C against vturpa

the government, being distinct heads, one
cannot exercise tli e powers and authority of
the other, without : throwing aside r.
ganie law and usurping powers subversiv e
and dangerous to its vsry extstence,

power by providing for perpetual teiiiotu ; by
refusing to ratify the appointments of. the

in themselves, i They stigmatise the . Su

quiesoed lo by them.
There remain two small barriers, .to-,U
complete triumph: of ine Republican party,
and a' consummation of their plans to destroy
our government, vis : the Pretidtnt and the
Suprmi Court. Couldjbey only depose these
powers, as in their mad efforts they are
seekintr to do. and re-mould them te tbeir
will, what a prospfot would be presented to
our view, buoum au me nenas oi rmio s
region burst the gates and bars of their in
fernal prison, their second advent would be
more harmonious and less destructive than
these contpiralort against the liberties of tbe
people.
We are not of .those who belier- thal the
recent demonstrations w intimidate the
President and Supreme court are destined to
have' the effect contemplated by that body.
Tbe President is cool and prepared for tbe
emergency,. Jhp demonstration on the 8th
inst., at Baltimore, is significant of. the po
sition of tbe people when called upon to
aot. The President bas the command of tbe
army and navy, 'He will, no doubt, upon
the f rst substantial demonstration,' arrest

ing to increase their

the leaders of this body, and call upon them
in the eeurts of the country to defend them

Congress, we think, dare not advance one
step farther in this question of impeach

It. Outraged justice will demand that they
be arraigned for the act, should they attempt
it.

Connecticut Democratic
State Convention.
At the Democralif State Convention in
Kew Haven, January 8th, the following res
olutions were adopted r
Wukbcas. It beeomes a free and intelll
ent Deocle. Justly jealous of their rights
and liberties, to frankly and fearlessly as
aert their views upon all great and ' impor
tant Questions, and,
Wbibias, When armed resistance to the
authority of the United States ceased, each
of the several Statoa that had been in an
tagonism to the Government became, by the
Inherent force of the Constitution and the
fundamental- Drincloles upon -which . cur
system of government is based, reinstated
and restored to all. their rights and privl
leees and.
Whbbkas,- The President of the Uuited
States, br virtue of the authority vested in
him by the Constitution Of the United States
and the laws )n pursuance icereor, issued
bis proclamation declaring the war at an
end; and, - -
Wbkbias, The Congress of the 'United
States demanded and accepted from said
States the exercise of one of the highest du
ties devolving upon States, to-wit, an alter
ation of and amendment to the Conetioution
of the United States; and,
Viiiui. Ths Supreme Court, of the Uni
ted States 'has declared That if Military
vflvernment is continued after the Courts
r reinstated, it is a gross usurpation of
power. : Martial rule can never exist where
fho courts are open and In proper and unoi-
iracta tcle of thr-jurlsdiclion--
Therefore r--'
Rttolved That each and all .of tbe States
tbat were arrayed in armed opposition to
the anthoritv of the Government of the
United States, having ceased auoh opposi
tion, are now entitled to representation in
the Congress of the United States, and to
all other rights and privileges appertaining
to the 8tates of the Union.
.Rt$olvti,1ht. the Congress of the united
8ttee, in its persistent exolusion of the
Senators and Representatives of said States
in its open and-avowed determination to de.
strov tbe organisation and subvert the au.

attacks the very principles that lie at tne

only a violation of tbe Constitution in its

most -flagrant breach of the public faith,
alike prejudicial to tne oeBt interest u

"Rebel" as a Term of Reproach.
-' - proarh.
Therx (is no - greater truth n ihe
Declaration of.' Independence tha the
statement that all history he's proved
that people are mote' prone to bear ip
pression and tyianny too long than o
ise and change their governments upon
too light snd trifling causos Notwith
standing ihe opprbf ium whioh is sought,
in this age, by shallow partisans, to bo
visited upon the word .'rebel," there is
little that is glorious in the history of
mankind that is not associated with that
word. All tbe freedom there ia io tho
world, politioal and religious, we owe to
tho exertions of what were oalled "reb
els" io their day and generation. Tha
oames ws have taught (or hnorriioih in
ancient and modorn timeSj wsta .those to
whom tbis appollatibn has been applied.
Large eoovmunities and great bodies of
men. do not rebel ' until they have real ;
tfansos of trievsDoe, , The risks of rebel
lion are too great,, the sufferings they
are almost certain to cause, too intense
to lead to suoh decided 1 action,' wjthout
the publiq are spurred on by injuries and
iadigcities that no high-spirited ' people -can
submit toj without disgrace' and but
rflillatipn injurios that, if submitted to, ,
are certain to lead, in tne end, to un
bearable oppression. ' It is singular that,
iixUlusfjjUiitiy, whna Qaaejuunenl. is
tbe fruit of a juceessful jbllioDt which
was formed by "rebels' and then adopt
ed by "rebels," which has sympathized
with every rebellion that wri ever set on
foot, should now have a party that finds
ia that term its highest degree of politio
al .depravity, whioh mouths tbe word
"loyalist" with all the fsoility with whioh
it has dver been used by the supporters
of kingcraft snd priestcraft in all
and countries.
.: They are, indeed, trying to read our
aistory backward, or, rather, to use with
a different -application the language of
the President, they have swung around
the circle until they have got directly
upon an opposite, side.' Only think ef
the deoendants ot those who boast of
their Hampton and Sidney who have
tbeir Washington, their Adams, Han
oock and Jefferson, all of whom soted in
defeuse of, civil liberty and of the right
of a peopi wheo oppressed to change
tboir government, and adopting as a
fundamental artiola of their creed tbat to
rebel agiinst constituted government is
the highest of orimes and the greatest bf
moral as' well as political sins.. The
most ultra high Tory dootrines o( the
apologists of .the Stuarts io the darkest
periods ot English history have bow be
come the.oroed of a faotkon io our own
oountry. From tbem they draw all
their arguments.' They reason from the
sarde premises,' and they oome to the
same conclusions They seem deter,
mined to blot out rebel reoollections in
the past by the greater tory or . loyalist
seal io the precept; Our haters of reb
els hare been, we fear, thrown into the
wrong, century. , What an . admirable
force they would have constituted to
sustain1 ' the tyranny of James or. of
Charles, in England 1 How loyal they
would have been to the British Govern'
ment in 1776 I , What faithful subjects
of tbe Hapsburg.or of the,, Czar they
would malte, whose Governments do not
bate rebels more than they do. '', "
How many Jeff. .Da vises and Robert
Lees tbey would have found in Huog.ry
and Poland !. VYhat extensive fields for
confiscation would the rebellion io those
nations have presented to them '' "Tbey
would have had their gibbets' snd Sibo
rias for all who had rebelled against
rightfurauthority' and : the proscrip- -tion
and persecution would have been
sufficient to gratify the malico even of
suoh men as Ben. Butler and Tbad. .
Stereos. Unfortunately for the cause'
of humanity that it was the destiny of
these zealous. loyalists to bo cast in this
lanS, whose previous history and the
temper of whose people had not beau
nxaotiy io oonsonanoe with them, and
that, therefore', so much. has to ho done
in order to blot out the pastt that we
may have an . eutirely new politioal
dispensation.--They would have .given
the Czar and Kattior no trouble, wheress,
in the Uoited States,; owing to the per- .
vereiiy of those who can not entirely
