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

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

ho used tbophraso 'limitations on -the
faith of which tho States acceded to that
instrument," and to tho satn.1 on August
20, 1702, ho counsels mutual, forbearance
conciliation, accommodation, otc, "and
such healing measures as may restore
harmony to tho discordant mcmbcri of
the Union and tho governing powers of
It-" "Without these," continued he, "I
do not sco how tho union of tho States
can bo much longer preserved."
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.
