THE MOUNTAIN DEMOCRAT.
From the Cincinnati Enquirer. PRINCIPLES OP liOVKKNMBNT. Till HABIAt COiri'S AND TI1E ATfVINS LAW— lgsroNilBILlTT OF TUI JCDICIABY. Macaulay relates in his review of Du mont’s Recollections of Mirabeuu that bo fore the French Revolution so little were even the learned and intellectual of France accustomed to reason upon the powers and uses ol government, that the maxim that governments were made for the people, and not the people for gov ernments, “ startled by its novelty and terrified by its boldness," This maxim, *o pin in ancT seitevn/circ ,e.,,■/?<! soem next to impossible cither to negative or to forget it, is the one most frequently lost smlit of in times of political distur bance. 0 It is the one upon which our en tire system of polity is avowedly found ed ; and yet we, the people of the United States are continually overlooking it; while it is daily disregarded by the Kx ceutive and Legislative brandies of the Govern incut. According to the express prov'-lms of the Constitution, no oilier of i I in d Sbdx.t v.l7. arrest, or cause to h - ; <ted,« upon any pretense however u;_ any person except upon a Warrant d by the proper legal authority. II,. war aant caa *;nly issue upon oath »r atliruia don, setting forth tegut griwivL, f.n, tp,; arrest, and describing the pat ly to be -ir rested. Whoever arrests in any oilier manner, or bv any other authority thnn this, is a wrong-doer. The duress wliiih he irdliets upon the party seized is “ false imprisonment," for whieh he is liable in damages to the full extent of the injury sustained ; nor can any other person, of ficer or power, Legislative or executive, constitutionally release him li-ui:i his lia bility. There is a claim set up by .he Admin istration and its party that, through the suspension of the writ of habeas i rpus, all these constitutional safeguards of I n ert} - may he at once annulled, and th person of the citizen made sub, , t to ar rest, with entire impunity, by any one having color of autlioriiy jmai I',- li iv ernment. This, even it the habeas cor pus were constitutionally su-pi mb d, is not true. The suspcii-iun is » i a« t ol force, in derogation of comm >11 right, in every case subject to be called in'* qo -- tion ; and lie who suspend', er :r t- un der a suspension prc-rlain.e i bv .an. r, can only excuse lumse’f ai d .. a judgment in damages, bv *tiowi' / ti nt, in that particular case, be was. -v:' | by the itnmineney of a p ib i- da i, which could only be averted by t-ri.; • - rarity denying a legal cxainiuaii -n to the party in custody. To seize min without warrant, even in cases of gui'.t, is a liiaii oil. -s ngai »l the majesty of the law.

Every party arr-'-d-g a" I de taining another without lawf-.l ant i : is a private wrong doer, and i- r>-i hie in his own pi-rs.in au-l n ' the injured party. The Kuspehsioii of the bins- i in dues not confer ti e au.’l -.m' v t. with any pr-e■■ s» k now charging, arresting, c v g.

The seizure, impris nment a-I d.-- charge of citizen*, wtth.xit a-vii»-it o ■ t w ithout trial, is, in itself, l'.i » . ; ’ - ■■lent Proof of these facts is ai that is necessary to establish the ; n " can the person prosecuted f-o to • ■> behind them to show, by way of jiistiv cation, that the parly s< ued bail U - guilty of a crime against the Siam.

There is now an attempt of t' irty in power to serein its instriino fi consequences of their acts of t vr -v A bill lias passed the Lower II • r' ••- gross which recites that safety required the privde.- iiit of habeas corpus tu be suf; . I that “gome arrests and mi --m-uid's were made in consequence tin ret I';" mid provides: “That all such suspensions, arrests and imprisonments, by w liouiso. v. r na :- d ' be made, sball be continued and made valid, and the President, secre’ar'i > and heads of departments, ami all com- er 11 eil or advising such acts, are hereby indent nified and discharged in respect there'-': and all indictments, informations, suits, prosecutions and proceedings, wherever commenced, or to he commenced, against the President, or any other person, ate hereby discharged and made void." It only needs a recollection of the plain est principles of common justice to un derstand that this law, so (nr as it pur porta to take from any citizen a pre-vx isting right of action, is totally void, it is to every intent and pnrp ue, an ex poat facto law, to enact which is express ly forbidden by the Constitution. No party but one utterly besotted and mud w ith malice and fanaticism would, dare to put upon rword such a damning testi monial against itself; am! the memory ot this law, like many of the decrees of the French Constituent Assembly, will stand as another example of the curses which, in iu own name, are committed against human liberty. This bill will probably pass the oilier branch of the National Legislature, and will receive the signature of the I’rc-i elent. It is a party measure, devised by the party of the Administration in self defense. We call attention to the fact that the journals of that party, if they say nothing in its favor, sav nothing against it. They stand bv silent, and permit this great iniquity— this most pal pable legislative crime— this breach of one of the plainest principles ol justice and clearest provisions of the Constitu tion to be committed. Let the people re member this; and when they cluiin, as they doubtless will, that they are to he considered the defenders of ihe freedom of the citizen and the purity of Republi canism, let this be thrust in thiir faces. The question, then, remains: - What will the Judiciary do V It is the business of the Judiciary to give practical foicc to the principles of justice and the provis ions of the Constitution. This law will bring in conflict the powers of the Courts and those of Congress. The rights—the native and inahneable rights—the dearest lights that appertain to man as an intel ligent and social being—the rights of personal liberty and personal security— now bang for their future recognition in this country upon the Judges of the law. As they shuil decide wi.l depend the question whether anything remains of that constitutional freedom which we have so long and so loudly boasted was our own, our exclusive birthright. That the full pressure of the party in power will he upon them to constrain them to wrest justice and trample u on the f'on stitution, is not to he doubted. How far and how resolutely they wilt resist, is a point whose decision must rest with the future. Fuuhai.tsji Oomsssdi.no itself.— One of the correspondents of the Boston Jour on!, which paper is sufficiently orthodox to satisfy the most servile insurrectionist, writes from Newbern, N. 0., that sonic Federal, >>r *• Union" troops, as they are felicitously styled, had broken into the family tomb of General Fpaight, an old soldier of 1S12, had forced open the oof tins and thrown their contents rudely about, in the hope of tiluting treasure sait'e . 4 -v/wg such receptacle, ‘ by the hastily departing inhabitants. — The correspond -nt avers that at first he wou! l not believe the report, hut that, sh• the f.ic'.s forced Uiiu ' >» ti/v * }i»i(S.eu».

As Onn Tit vNKsuivisa Seusion.—A iiwiijne thanksgiving sermon was preach ed at Yonkers, N. V. this year. Fix con gregations were united on the occasion, completely filling the first Presbyterian church, and six pastors, representing the two schools of the Presbyterian church, the Butch Reformed, Episcopal, the B:.| - tist, and the Methodist churches look part in the services, and joined in preach ing one and the same sermon I The text of the discourse was Eph. 5; if "Giv ing thanks always, for all tilings, unto Gull, and the l ather, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." The Dutch Reform ed pastor introduced the sermon, and very naturally divided it into six parts. Each pint iiad been assigned to one of the preachers, and at the end of an hour the largo congregation had heard with evident satisfaction, a well jointed and in teresting sermon, preached by six minis ters of as many denominations. At the close of it a collection was taken up, and n liberal one, for the suffering operatives of Lancashire, England. OTTR OORREfflPONDENTa. Norther* El Dorado, Feb. 3, 1963. Messrs Editors: It is gratifying to contem plate tbe blessings we are soon to enjoy in be ing brought nearer to the great metropolis of the Pacific. by railway. It is announced in the papers that woik has commenced on the rail load connecting Placervillc with Sacramento Sacramento will soon be connected bv railroad with San Francisco, via. Stockton and Sun Jose —a part of the way being nearly ready for the cars, and which will be completed before sum mer from San Francisco to San Jose. Wc begin to anticipate the day when the bristling monster (bog's buck) will be no im pediment to speedy traveling; but there is a matter nearer home which demands more im mediate attention—a good road from George town to PUccrvUW—atwad wtwr which freight may be easily taken. Tbe present road, by Chili Bar. is not such au one as the public re quires. It is too steep for heavy loads, and cannot, without large expense, be improved. I have heard that Messrs. Thomas II Wil liams & Co., have secured the right to build a road across ut Table Rock, which has been,, chained and found to be feasible, for a road of easy grade, without an increase of distance; and I leuru, also, that the work will be prose cuted early in the Spring, they having already ordered a survey for that purpose.

A Sr. Lot is paper gives statistics show ing the probable number of slates in Mis souri to be bought by the proposed com pensated emancipation project. It thinks there are still 100,000 in the State, and the twenty million bill would only give an average of 8200 for each of them. It is highly probable that should any such sheme of emancipation be sanctioned, all the “likely” n«*grfes would be sold South at a much higher figure. The value of the oil thus far o! tained from the Venango (Pa.) oil region is esti mated at $4,UilO t 0U0 t Vet the producing country is but some eight miles long, with an average width of less than 4U rods. The present daily \ ield of the Venango oil wells is about 4,000 barrels, and the value of this, at present prices, is 325,000. The Abolition politicians in Pennsyl vania have Just ejected from office the Democratic Sheriff’ of Philadelphia, be cause he was elected by the soldiers’ vote. They declare the vote to bo un constitutional! At the same time, the game class of politicians in Iowa, are electing Aboli tionists to Congress by the army vote I The soldier vote is constitutional when it helps them, but unconstitutional when it i6 against them.
