j"P? I s THE WASHINGTON CRITIC, SATURDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY- gyi888. if f u V S If V WASHINGTON'S WISDOM "Was Ho Sot tho Gamaliel at Whose fleet Jefferson-Sat? THE STATES AND THE UNION. "Our Policial Polity ns Understood Uj tlio I'lrst rrcsHlgnt, Cardinal principles of polity In a const! tutlonnl rcpubllo must bo matters of fact, Wcnnso thoy nro "established" as fnndn ircntal laws. AVhat was constituted? "Who did It? What right had thoy? etc., nre questions of fact, mid If "Washington mid Jcifcrson entirely concur, and aro corroborated by nil tho leading fathers, It would bo absurd for Americans to tolor nte any other theory than tho factual ono thus established. It Is n remarkable fact that Washington preceded Jefferson In the statement of those factual principles of our polity, -which WO are addicted to styling jErrrasoiriAW pi-mociiaoy. It will ho seen that Washington, like Jefferson, thought tho Union n-voluntary awooi atlon of pre-existent political bodies, each acting with its own absolute Willi In ratifying, and thereby establishing, "tho toiistltutlbii of tho United 8tates.'r In letters to General Knox and Mndi con and Randolph, in March and April, J 787, ho repeatedly speaks of "the States'' ns free "to appear In tho convention" or not, Jfo ono disputed that In said con vention, they acted and voted as distinct bodies in tho character they agreed upon in tho second nrtlclo of confederation "sovereign" States." "By unanimous order of the convert tion.y ho stated to Congress, concerning tho Constitution he enclosed, that It was for "tho Federal Govcnuncnt or these States," and that tho potters "vested" in the General Government wcro tho "dole gatinu-ofan extcnslvo trust." To Madison, October 10, 1787, he bpokc, of the Constitution being "submitted to a convention of this State." To David Stuart, October 17, 1787, ro Vlylnc to objections, ho wrote: "No men, or bodies of men, or countries, will enter into any compact or treaty It one of the ihreeds to have a negative control over the other tmc. TJicro must bo reciprocity or no union." ToTflushrod Washington, November 10, 1787, he wrote: "A candid solution of a simple, question docs, in my opinion, de cide tho dispute, namely: Is It best for tho States to unite?" Further on ho asks what tho opponents will propose for Vlr lynla "if nine other States should acccdo fo the. Constitution." Ho lias no idea of tovcreignty in government, but says "tho power tinder tho Constitution will aluays lie in tlicpeoplc. It is intrusted, for cor tain defined purposes and for a certain limited period, to representatives of their own choosing. Their servants can, and undoubtedly will, bo recalled," ir they act "contrary to tho interests and wishes of tho people." To Jefferson, January 1, 1788, llo names "the only States that have as yet decided" and mentions others that aro to hold their conventions. To Count Hochambcan, January 8, 1788, he writes that tho Constitution is to bo submitted to "conventions in, tho sev eral Htntes and by them approved Or re jected." To General Lafayette, February 7, 1768. lio explains the investing of powers needed for "the fniictionsof a coOo government," and concludes byspcakingortheprospoct or tho Constitution being adopted by nino States ormorc. Tennsylvania, Delaware, Jcw Jersey ami Connecticut havo already done It. It ii also said Jhat G?orlnb.a5 heceueu. , aiui uj mo satno ho writes, -April 28, 1788; "The people retain every thing. they dfc not by Bxprcss terms glvo up. lloncoa billot rights is nugatory." And again, on Jtino 17, 178S, to tho same, ho speaks of "tho accession or Maryland to tho proposed covermncnt," and adds that "tho accession of ono lrioro State will complete tho number nine needed to establish, it." l J To General Hncknoy, June 23, 1788, ho rays that "Virginia has adopted," by a vote of 80 to 70, that this is a .day of re joicing at Alexandria, and that tho pleas ure Is increased by the news that ''New Hampshire, on the 21st Instant, acceded to the mew Confederacy by a majority of 11 voices that is" to say, 57 to JO." Ho .rrpeaks further of "tho ten Statct that have actually adopted tho General Gov eminent," and 'liopes, tho Union will now bo established on a durable' basis." I will now conclude Washington's ante lrcldcnUal views with short, pithy phrases ofconclusivo meaning from his letters written between June, 1788, and larch, 17S9, to l'inckney, Jay, Madison, General. Lincoln, Sir Edward Nowcnhnni, end others thus enabling, tho reader to candor and patriotic fervor, by tho Father of his Country, He speaks of "the mombcrs of the mnion;V "tho now.Fcdcrol system;" "tho decision of ten States;" "tho accession of ten States;" a confederated government;" meaning tho ono beforo us, and tho hope that; "North Carolina will soon ac ccdo to tho now union." To General Lincoln ho writes: "Who ever shall bo found to enjov tho confidence of thoBtates" for Vice-President, will suit me ifl be President, To General Pinck neyhaeays: "After New York 'shall hate acted, only one little Btato -will -remain;" nd to Madison he writes: "Toward Now York wo look for whatever Is interesting till Me Siatet begin to act under tho new form.1 "To -.point tho moial nndadorn the talc," comes his letter to "BrOthor Jona than" Trumbull, dated July 20, 1788' II . , yf0 1Jnayl Tylt), a Mild Of pious and grateful exultation, trace tho jlngerof Providenco through thriso dark and Brvtiterious evonts which first in-. uced-Mct .Stales to appoint a general con -ventioji,,-nnd tborulcd Mem, ono. after another, pyr3Uch steps as were best calcu lated to effects tho object, into art adoption of tliey-unrcommendedJy that, gen eral convention. As IhenbOva statements of Washington, concerning our present Federal polity, preceded JerBsraon's voluminous exposi tions oftt, rimy wo not consider the former as the Gamaliel nt, whoso feet (ho latter tat? Titii rauiCKKcr caused. to ota;we. Lerua see If oillce caused Wasliington to modify his statements of factual or In etitntlonal principles. I quoted. his phrasoafow paragraphs hack about "the States beginning to act under tho new form," and I now quote Ids letter to Jefferson, dated February 13, 1780, speaking of "tho measures taken by Ihodlttercnt States, for carrying tho new government into execution." . He1 wrote to Governor Johnston of North-Carolina of his hope that his Stato would, "speedily accede, to thenew Cen tral Government," and ot "tho political relation which is to subsist hereafter be tween; the State of North Carolina and the Etatesnow in union." AtidtoUonverncnr Morris, early in 1780, ho expressed tho hopothet "the non-acceding 6ta'Miyill toon become members of tho Union." To Governor Fenner, of Rhode Isknd, he wrote June ll, 1700, of the then recont "ratification of tho Constitution by tho convention of Ithodo Island" and con gratulated him upon "all those States which were originally confederated," being; "ouceinoro as ono family," And toConflt'Segur, July 1, 1700, ho wroto that the "union of States Is now complete wider tho now government, by tho late accession of .Rhode Island to tho. new Constitution." Passing by many cognate expressions, I quote- from his letter to iJr. David Etuart, March 20, 1702a "To accommbdato differences, temper and mutual forbear ance' aro requisite. Common danger brought the States into confederacy, nnd on their union our safety and importance depend. Aaflrit of accommodation was the bonis of the piosont Constitution. If tho Eastern and Northern States are ,dangcins. in union italics his -will they heloasuojnisepm-atlon? ?

TIti: tVMKWKU, ADDRESS Is In full liormoy with tho above, and it adjures our people to prcsorvo tho. Union by preserving "tho sacred tics that bind together tho various parts," viz, Mildness- mutuality, justice, c. And his correspondence shows special approval of tho Federalist, In tho ilrst number of which Hamilton said, "socle tics of men," "from their reflection and lnent," and in tho last number Of nliIcU No. 8f ho said, "thirteen lndoiondont States" aro "tho parties to tho compact" all tho intermediate numbers being en tirely consonant. And finally WashlnRton must liavo considered (for ho could but know) that tho commonwealths of people were tho governing power contemplated by tho Constitution; becauso tho first article named them, and provided that thoy should chooo their Senators, Rcjircicnta tlves and Presidential electors, nnd glvo to them their only official status and tho titles to their olllccs, nnd, moreover should select them from their own mem bers, citizens and subjects; because tho seventh nrtlclo proved absolutely that they, tho said loctcttct wire, by ratifying to (itabiith tho said Constitution; because tho fifth article proved that they alono had tho sovcrign power of amcndlngit; and, finally, because tho fourth articlo proved that their congress (I. e., tho con cretsof themselves,) had tho option of doing the absolutely soi etelgn act of "ad riiiUing Into this Union" soicreign oquais, as they, tho said United States, havo al ready dono twentj-llvo times, and as they will probably continue to do till the re public of republics is only bounded by octane, and tho Federal compact is a reciprocity treaty covering tho Western florid. I havo Httlo doubt that tills was, In some degree. Washington's statcsmanliko forecast, for ho is on record ot having ap proved Madison's No. 11 of tho Federalist, containing tho following: "Tho ifnmedl ato object of the Federal Constitution is to secure the Union of the thirteen print( tiu Stales, and to add to them such other States as may arise." I am forced to conclude, then, that Washington considered that "tho States began toactundor the noWform," to uso his own phrase, that they continued "to net under tho now form;" and that they intended to do all tho government Of tho country throughout the future. I judge that Washington and his com patriots of the convention novor thought of a constitutional right' or secession. Such remedy is revolutionary, for cer tainly, ns to tho seceding people, it revo lutionizes their Federal Government, whilo it gives tho adhering States, under iiiojus gentium, a casus belli, if they so de termine, os thoy recently did. Coercion df States Mas rejected by tho fathers as war anu inconsistent wim me plan; while that of persons, by law nnd through courts, was choson. Consolida tion v, as charged by enemies nnd refuted by friends, and was odious to nil. Hamil ton railed It "political suicide.!' and -said: "Whilo tho Constitution continues to bo read, and its principles known, the States must, bv everv rational man. ho con sidered ns essential, component parte of uio union.-- in. J.n. jjuo, uui.i ut courso, these wero tho views of Wash ington. I judge, too, that if Washington, noar tho close of hisrllfc, had been asked to sanction tho modern dogma that theso "United Stalest Is a nation" lila answer would have been much like tho cherry tree one , I trust The Cnrno and critics generally will remember that Washington, and not tho undersigned compiler, is responsible fyr tho quoted .statements.
