J" The London Times speaks very lightly of
our present Congress, and scysthe great questions
agitating the country were left as unsettled at the
adjournment as they were at the commencement
of the lnte session.' The fact of tho body raising
tho salaries ot its members from 3'0O to $5000

of a lengthy sarcasm by the "Thunderer."
A coirespondcnt writing from Paris, mentions,
as an instance of the severity of the law of France,
the case of a commune in one of the central de
partments against a land owner, who had refus
ed to allow the poor of the neighborhood to exer
cissthe prescriptive right of gleaning in his fields
alter harvesting. The suit was tiecided against
the land-owner, on the ground that the owner had
no power to bring sheep into his own field until
two days after the gathenng-in of the harvest, so
as to give the gleaners time to avail themselves
of their rights. Another law is that no land-owner
is allowed to cut down a single tree on his es
tate without the consent of an individual whose
duty it is to superintend everything in the shape
of trees, wild or planted, and to regulate their
cutting according to the provisions of the law.
Thus, when an owner wishes to cut down trees he
sends for this functionary, who, after examin
ing the premises, marks the ones which may be

of the Holy Fatiier for taking that step and the
dancer menacing the temporal power and his un
wilfinguess, in spite of his weakness, to abandon
the "patrimony of SI. Peter" to (lie revolution,
and as it cannot defend by itself the possessions
secured to it by the two founders ot the Cai ibyin
gian dynasty, the papacy lias no alternative but to
leave thein 111 the hands of the successor of Pern
of tho Catholic Prince par excellence namely his
Most Christian Majesty the sovereign of Fiance,
ihe oiiginal giver would thus resume until belter
days come the guardianship of those possessions,
and as the Pope is the spiritual Vicar of Chris!,
so the Emperor Napoleon would become the tem
poral Vicar of the Pope.
The Temps docs not vouch for' Ilia correctness
of this news but it savs : It must bo admitted
that the subtlety uf the Court of Rome has more
man once produced results quite as unexpected.
We doubt, however, whether it would definitely
adopt a scheme which would have no other object
than to uirke the French Government responsible
to Catholicity for the events which may hereafter
h jppen, not wiliiout detriment to the Holy See.

THE REGISTRY LAW,
LOUIS V. BOCU'B REPLY TO C. D. DRAKE,
From the St. Louts Times.'
B. ljini, in. VI
Editor Times t Mr. Drake having given his
views to the public on the Registration law anf!
toolcins upon thi. lnw- tho Bwwt important and
wiiuui.iin nucsiiun er me uiy it is no less im
portant that a correct interpretation of it be placed
before the public. Permit me here to use the
language or Mr. v., viz:
"No one knows belter than I that I have no po
sition or authority which would warrant my as.
suming unytmng like an authoritative tone in this
matter, cut as a citizen, I may, without impro
priety, express my views with regard (0 it."
Having very often, wilhin a few mouths given
my views in speeches to the public on this very
law and these views dilfering from the views of
Mr. Uraltc as contained in his letter of the 2"th
instant, it is due to the importance of the qiteslion,
and to the public, that either Mr. Drake or my
self, be corrected. Desiring to make this commu
nication as brief as possible, so that no one may he
deterred, because of its length, from reading it,
I will only notice one or two of the pointa discuss
ed by Mr. Drake
I will however, say this, fiat under foine ap
pearance, and expressions of great fairness, hi
construction of this low ii calculated to make it
more odious and ati'i-rnpuhliran than the law it
selfhad as it is ho!h as a fact, and as violative
of the jjreat principles of self government. Mr.
Drake in common with his whole party seems to
proceed under this fundamental error, viz.: that
the right to vote as well as other righ's, inherent
m all free Governments, inn be withheld, con
trolled, or extended, or restricted, by the govern
ing parly or power administering the government.
This I say is a gnat error. This present party in
power in our Slate is not Ihe source of power; it
does not belong to it to withhold or extend any of
our rights, either political or c'lierwisc. The
right to vote in a free Government is a fund,irr,.in
tal right that is, it is a ris;ht laying at the foun
dation of (lie entire superstructure; it springs from
the people as the source of ail power. In Europe,
where peoples and nations are governed bv dynas
ties claiming to he sovereign, this right m'ay prop,
erly be restricted ty the governing sovereign; but
in this country the people are the" sovereigns, and
hold relatively the same power held by the kir.gj,
emperors or kaisers ot Europe.
ivlr. Drake a'.d Mr. Feltcher
eigns; but so am I, as well as every other citizen
of our broad State. It is a joint sovereignty, am!
there arc certain forms known by which the action

however exalted, much less in the band of
obscure and irresponsible partim, many of whom
are totally ignorant ot our wh'de system ol gov
ernment, and irresponsible in character,repiitation
and purse. By the eonstitu'ion airy oner takinpc
tbe oath of loyalty is prima 'arts entitled to be
registered as a voter; but tbe taking this oatb.
shall not be -teemed conclusive, but such rieh',
the Constitution says, may be disproved. Th
word disproved is the converse of prove. Th
meaning of these works are known to everybody.
It will be observed that no power ia given to the
register in the Constitution to act from his own
knowledge; he is to hear proof, the same as
judge on the bench, and after hearing such proof
he (the register) decides, whether thi party ap
plying shall be registered or rejected. The pro
ceeding is a sort ot judicial investigation, and
his decl-lon stands as a judgment from whieh
tbe party has the right to appeal. Although this
appeal is a farce for it is an appeal from Caesar
to Ceasar yet it would be an insufferable farca
if it was an appeal from the decision based on
his own private knowledge of facts, and which
facts were known to no one else. Nor Is there
any where in this Constitution any power given
to the leisterto examine the party offering to
vote he is required to take proof. Nor is it
true Hiat the exsminnrion is to take place be
foie the oath is administered on the contrary,
the rcverre is plainly the reouirment of th r.on-
stitntinn and tbe law. According to my views
cf both of them, the party applying to he regis
tered first takes th- oath, and his right to be reg
istered follows as a matter of course, nnless tliis
richt be disproved. The construction of Mr.
Drake is in conflict in my opinion, both with tlie
Constitution and the law. And is norevcr 01

a duty and a right, and no free government can be)
sustained where this duty is not faithfully dis
charged, ar.d this ripht strictly exercised.

will not at this time say what will be the consi

To he v.-oi thy of freedom the respcisibili

stated that I intended to make my communication
as brief as possible, I will, on this occasion, only
notice those point, of Mr. Drake's letter which
give to the officers 01. registration the power to in
vestigate the qualifications of voters. T! e views
of Mr, Drike on this head arc contained under
four heads, his 4th, Uh, 0th and "th points. The
substance of his argnment is this that ! je cfiicer
has the power to examine under oath any and ail
persons applying for registration, "as to his qual
ifications as a voter" and Hint it U u ,l,.iw "of
the officer of registration before eitcnng tlie name
of any person upon the register of qualified voters,
iiiiigrmiy 10 inquire ana ascertain that ne lias not
done any of the acts specified in the constitution
as causesof disqualification, and that the admin
istration of the oath of loyalty should be post
poned until the qualifications of the party have
been fairly placed before the officer, and slould
be administered only when he is accepted as a
?ualihed voter in all other respects." These views,
contend, are not correct, and are not sustained by
the new Constitution, admitting it for the present
to he the supreme law. It is in the Constitution
that the people limit cr restrict the exercise of
any ot their political rights; all political power
is with them; b-.t, for the sake of pood govern
ment, this power they choose to limit in their
written Constitution. I have often denied, and
do yet deny, tb.it tiiis new 1'anstifution ii? proper
ly the Constitution of the State. I deny the pow
er of the lata State convention to inike a new
Constitution, and I furthermore deny that a ma
jority of the voting people of the State voted to ap
prove it; but the party with which I am acting
have agreed to abide by it for the present, and un
der it, uad and infamous as it is, to iry to restore
to the people of this Slate, something like free
government. It is therefore to this constitution
that I desire to call the attention ot Mr. Drake and
the people of the entire State. If the registry law
is not sustained ty the constitution, it is a nulity.
ii 19 hub ijuesuuiis may, ami uo orien arise, wmcli

cy between the law and the constitution, is so
plain that purblind men can see it it is the right
nay, the duty ot every one, to obey the consti

The 4th and 6U1 sections of the 2nd article,
new constitution, are the sections which relate to
a registry law. The 4th nrovides. thut-thi,
ral assembly shall immediately provide by law for
iiij .i aim uniioim registration. iue in
section says, "after such a system shall have been
esiauutiieu me eaiu oaui (.meaning the oalh of loy
alty) shall be taken and subscribed by the voter
at each tima of his registration any person de
clining to take said oatti shall not be allowed to
vote, or be registered as a qualified voter. The
taking thereof shall not be deemed conclusive evi

shall be received unless the party offering it take,
at the time, tne oaui or loyalty nerciuatier pre
scribed." These are the very words of the con-
slitution. Now, Mr. Drake says that under the
ninth section ot the act, "lhe officer of registration
has power to examine, under oaui, any and all
persons apph ing to vole, as to their qualifications
as a voter," and savs, tliis power is gr.intedwit!i

well to Ihe whole field ot enquiry as to his qual
ification, t y the act of tl'.epdity in time past or
otherwise;" arid this examination to be exercised
before the oath of loyalty is administered to the
party. I contend these views of Mr. Drake are
111 direct comilct with tlie Constitution, and not
sustained by the section he refers to; but even if
it were in the section or the law he quotes, if
this law was nut sustained by Uie Constitution ii
would be inoperative, but really the law itself
does not bear this construction. Bad as the Con

ing more for the immediate pre? -tat tu.au for the
Stanton's mode of saving himself is to get a for

tne president nrt "to suffer this scandalous mem

into obscurity under the cover of some protecting;
official appointment." it demands that Le snail

commeuerd by Sinithson, the banker, a resident

troable for Mr. Stanton. It is understood that
since the publication of the legal documents iu th
