T!ie Washington Union thus speak3
of the proceedings of tha Massachusetts
The proceedings of the Massachu
setts Legislature on the subject of the
delinquent member who led the foray up
on the Catholic female seminary, are
more like the police reports of a great
city than the reeords of a body of men
assuming to represent not only a State
funous for its intelligence and prosper!
ty but also a party started into being
pledged to reform the errors and vices
of mankind. The testimony taken in
the case is such as no respectable news
paper can lay before its readers, and the
conclusions of Jhe committee, reached
after a sifting of the facts stated, are
simply exhibitions of depravity and in
decency. .Mr. Hiss has been expelled
from the Legislature (or his conduct; and
now proposes betraying his companions.'
He says if he is guilty of tbe'offences at
tributed lo hiin, others in high office are
quail) so. His statement is an appro
priate sequel to the whole affair, and to
the reparts of his colleagues. The in
Testigation to which he was a party was
got up to show the immorality of the
Catholic seminarie. To gratify the pru
rient prejudices of a proscripiive combi
nation. aDd feed the fire of religious in
tolerance, the whole affair was made as
formidable a possible. The inquiry was
conducted with equal violence nnd reck
lessness. The rosult is that those who

Correspondence of the Journal of Commerce.
Washington, May 12
The course which the Union has ta
ken in repaid to the Kansas difficulties,
and particula.ly in relation to Governor
Reeder's administration of his office, is
such as to show that he will be sustain
ed by tho adrainistrution. Any other
course would lead to great confusion and
excitement. Gov. Keeder is preparing
to return to Kansas, notwiihstanding all
the threats to depose or lynch him, and
he asks no aid from government troops,
relying on his own moderation and dis
cretion, and the support of all well dis
posed persons of the Territory, to restore
and maintain crder. -
The Missouri borderers, who hare com
mitted such outrages, have acted under a
belief which has been preservingly im
pressed upon them by politicians, that
the northern people were all abolition
ists, and that if the northern people set
tled in and controlled Kansas, nnd made
it a free State, the State of Missouri
would become worthless the slaves made
free, and the lands abandoned, and evey
man's life and property endangered.
With these notions of the settlers of the
North, manv of whom were sent by the
anti slavery societies, the Missourians
recognized no distinction between a free
State man and an abolitionist. They con
sidered nil as abolitionists who were not
avowed pro slavery men.
There is no mistake about the fart.

The expedition must have rnst a larc-

inhabitants of the Territory, which ap
peared in your paper of yesterday, is a
proper exposition of the views of a large
majority of the bona fide settlers. The
people of Missouri and the South will, it
is hoped, be led by this representation to
take a just view of the subject. It is
not for the interest of the South to pro
voke further agitation on this question,
any more than it is for the North to en
courage such demonstrations as were
made at the enti slavery ceKbration in

Popular Sovereignty at affected by thf Kansas
Of all thfc political humbuggery which
marks this "ge-of humbugs, we know of
none more remarkable than the latest
the attempt to connect recent events in
Kansas with the great doctrine of popu
lar sovereignty, or, in other words, the
right of the people to govern themsefves.
The mait reprehensible conduct of per
sons from Missouri who have forcibly con
trolled the elections in that Territory, is
zealously adduced as an unanswerable
argument against this political right,
which lies at the foundation of all our
political instiiutions. A great principle
is tested by its liability to abuse. If
there should be an irruption of Cannadi
ans in this city to-morrow, who should
take possession of the polls, and carry
the election, does it thence follow that
popular sovereignty is an absurd preten
sion? The absurdity is with those who
maintain such a pretension. All our in
stitutions may be abused; often are abus
ed; but should we gain by substituting
for them some other sovereignty than a
popular one? This is the tery corner
J stone of all despotism. Despotic gov -
ernmentssay to the people: you are not
fit to rule; you would abuse the privi
lege; therefore we rule you. This is
just what was said in England a thous
and times, before oar revolution, to jus
tify their assumed power over us. Laws
may be violated in Kansas as well as in
Michigan; but does that circumstance
j impugn the doctrine of the right of sec
government? If it does, we must seek
jsome other depository of power in this
! Stale than the people. Kansas may in
troduce slavery, nnd should she do so,
we should think she done a very unwi.e
act. We do not believe she will. 15ut
Pennsjlrania may introduce it also, and
if she did, would that test the truth of
this great doctrine, and prove i's non-existence
by an act of abue? All power
may be abused, and, therefore, according
to this new logic, no power can be grant
ed. And, in any view, where do those
who eeek to render obnoxious this great- j
est o! political securities where do they
propose to deposit the power of a coun
tr? In a king? And cannot he en?
Let history answer that question. The
world has yet discovered no safer trustee
of political institutions tban the people
themselves. Occasional excesses or abuses
may occur. But the public virtue and
intelligence are certain to bring the prop
r remedy. And the course of things in
Kansas furnishes no more proof of tho
error of the proposition of the right of
man to govern himself than does the
course of tilings now taking place in the
Legislature of Massachusetts of the un
fitness of the people of that State to con
trol their destiny; nor, indeed, so much.
for the true resident of Kansas have

fence of a few corps, the main portion of
the AlUed troops would endeavor to pene
