TIC MOUNTAIN DEMOCRAT.
<• Eallilmtati.” Under this head we certainty think must be classed the vexatious arrests of men all over the"conntry, on vague char get of what is called V disloyalty.” The patriotic call on men to enlist is ‘‘to pre. gerve a fre* country.” May not men be tempted to say, when they see one and •nother quiet citizen jerked up for the Utterance of his opinion about the war, or its conduct, or the Cabinet, or somebody else —that such freedom of opinion is ■ynaranUed in a free country? In nu merous instances these are proved to be the work of some of the meanest and Vilest of neighbors of the victims, and to be founded on the mere falsehoods of the accusers. Charles Ingersoll, of Philadelphia, the son of an honored sire, was arrested for language used by him at a political meet' ing, regarding the corruptions of the pres' ent Administration. He is harassed by the arrest, even while his mother is lying dead in that city—her death said, at least to have been haotened by his arrest. Af *«*• auiffe’ days trouble, t/u) xb» nrocure- Vnent of a writ of habeas corpus, returna •uio oeiore the brave JhAge , be is, on last Monday morning released, *• by order of the Secretary of War." This be lease was sent while he was yet "in the custody of the Court,” thus ignoring its authority. Why these frivolous arrests ? And why these discharges without trial? If, in any place, Martial Law be legally proclaimed, it is within the discretion of the military authority to postpone com pliance with the writ of habeas corpus, bat it is not in the right of the Military, to discharge any freeman not subject to the Articles of War, when once arrested, without the intervention of the judicial jfiower. The theory of our laws is, that the writ of habeas corpus is never suspended, ex cept when "rebellion or invasion" lias rendered it impossible for tbe courts to discharge their functions. It is the wild est mistake, and the grossest ignorance of law, to suppose that the declaration of Martial Law, subjects the district so “pro claimed” to the Articles of War. Civil ians attending to their civil business re tain all their rights. It is only when as teamsters, sull.rs, peddlers, reporters, or what not, they come w ithin tbe lines of cccupati n by an army, that they become "camp-followers,” and thus subject them selves to the Articles of War. The plain principles of law, hitherto established in the courts ought to lie re peatedly brought before the public mind on this subject. The present horrible confusion of all right must either lead to the establishment of new guarantees for personal freedom —or rather to the stern vindication of the guarantees already de clared—or the prediction nude by a dis tinguished liritish lawyer at the time the Independence of the States was recognized will prove true: "The people of tho-c States will fling away the writ of habeas corpus, and tbe guarantees of Magna Charts, 'in tbe occurrence of their tirst serious internal war."— N. V. Freeman's Journal. The Jadlciary and ih« Uircvtlvr. We co|>v i* report, •>»** the V \ . Free man'* Journal, ari'l probably a lame one, of ilia action of the l . S. Judge Smalley, of Vermont, on application by writ of liabi-a* corpus. The senseless press Call it a “ conflict of the Judiciary with the Executive." It is simply an instance of a Judge doing w hat he must do, or ren der hiiuself infamous. Ju Ige Smalley repudiates, as insuffi cient, the order of tire Secretary of W ar, or any of his subordinates to disregard, or suspend, (tie writ, but he is reported as hesitating as to whether such s power does not lodge with the President. Judge Smalley is in danger of making here, a grave judicial mistake. He seems to ar gue “only the highest authority known to the laws can suspend the writ," and then doubts whether, in that view, as the Ex ecutive ig.®r>*or„Jinate »vj(jh the Legislature, the chief executive may not have that power. We think the Judge's opinion tnay be modified if be will advert to the, fact that the Legislature requires the sanc tion of the Executive to complete its ac tion, and that thus the proper, and the only proper authority to suspend the op eration of the organic law of habeas cor pus is the Legislative and the Executive —Congress and the President If we con sider the reluctance that was felt to incor ,porating, in the Constitution, any provis ion for suspending that writ of habeas corpus, we will see the propriety of throw ■ ssg ; 7JC7* passible gvwV*." itv *Jj* way of (be abuse of the suspending power. Read the Petition of Right, drawn by Cooke's own hand. Read the terms of the act of habeas corpus, and it will seem 'that, even in the times of the despolical -Stuarts, the Executive, that is the King, -was denied any right to suspend or disre gard this writ, under the British Consti tution. Is our Executive to be clothed with a power so certain to be abused? e “ Suppose you go to war." said Presi dent Lincoln in his Inaugural Address, whieh we hope our readers have not for 'gotten, “you cannot fight always. And 'when, after much loss on both sides, and ; no gain on either, you cease fighting, the ‘identical questions as to terms of inter ' course are again upon you." -Democrats have been persecuted and 'imprisoned for uttering the same senti ment, foolishly believing in the right of of speech ! An exchange has the 'temerity to ask if the President’s language '“-is-not as true now, as undeniable nowi ms nineteen months ago?” We should aay yes; but the success of this Adminis tration in proving that black is white, in proving that Cameron is honest, Fremont «ompetent and Garrison patriotic, has staggered our faith in every thing but the reports of “ reliable contrabands” and tel egraphic dispatches. Bcrimninu or tue Woods hi one Rail road.—The Calaveras Chronicle says that • ground was lately broken on the line of the Woodbridge Railroad. The company have already built an office at Wood, bridge, and will vigorously prosecute the work on the route. It is not improbable that the Placerville Railroad will connect with it Trcuwtr likUjr’i riu*tlcrUf. We publish below, says the Marysville Express, an article from the S. F. Call, upon the late bit of sharp practice of State Treasurer Ashley, in the matter of Our proportion of the Federal tax. The com ments of the Call are timely and just. It was a small business in our cute State Treasurer to swindle the Government by paying it up in its own paper. Who pockets the little matter of $6,000 —the difference between $63,000 in gold and $63,000 in "green backs” ? The Call ap pears to,assume that the speculation was undertaken by the Republican official for the benefit of the State. This will not do. Let the Call and all the Republican pa pers in the State say what they may about the transaction, there are not a doz en men in the State who believe that Ash ley purchased tbs notes with any such idea as that of benefitting our State Treasury by the operation. Everybody believes that the matter was a little pri vate speculation, intended for the benefit of the speculator himself. Mr. Ashley may make of necessity a virtue, and claim the merit of a disinterested act for the benefit of his State, after he hps seen vim a Tumpdsbv* cvHe pifte? cfiwuJ »»»> •rnsvp}** publican brethren. State Treasurer Ash ley needs watching. The $6,000 specu lation was not undertaken for the State. With the Call we '.bteli mean and contemptible piece of business, let the motive be what it may. Uncle Sainyule (as Orpheus C. Kerr would say) needs the gold, and the people who paid it to Mr. Ashley expected that venerable old gentleman to have it: “The Picayune Financier. —Through the picayune economy of Mr. Ashley, the Treasurer of State, the great and opulent commonwealth of Calilornia stands dis graced before her sister States. Of course Secretary Chase, in reply to Mr. Cheese man, told the United States Sub-Treasu rer here to accept Legal Tender Notes in payment of the balance due on California’s ■piota of the Direct Tax, and Ashley will liquidate, in paper bought up at a dis count. a claim to meet w hich the people of the State had furnished gold. Ashley says he consulted with several State offi cers before he sent agents into the market to purchase Government paper. As far as we can learn he consulted with no one hut Warren, the Controller, whose exalt ed ideas of finance tallied exactly with those of the State Treasurer. These two officials put their heads together and agreed that it would be a good thing for California to peddle her reputation on the street corners in order to save a lew dol lars. Two notorious Shy locks, who be heatne famous in Sacramento as scrip and warrant .-havers, were employed at around commission to perfect the plan. These worthies at once placed a shingle outside their store, and in a few days the whole $63,000 was purchased and handed over to Ashley. Before the Governor was made aware that Ashley was about to hu initiate t alifornia in the eyes of the world by this shabby transaction, he, in his ca pacity of Commissioner to examine the State funds, refused to count the Legal lender Notes — which hail found their way into the Treasury lie knew nut how as cash dollars; but insisted that tln-y should be specified as so much Govern ment paper. Now that Ashley’s picayune, transaction has become public, the Gov ernor and the rest of tlie State officers fee! very much outraged at the conduct of the I reasiirer and the Controller. They feel exactly like every loyal citizen in the State feels, that Calilornia has been di>- gtaced and humiliated by a policy which is a- mean as it was unw an anted.” A War or Pillage. —The orders of Gen. 1’opi.on assuming command of the " Army of Virginia,” caused many to ap prehend that this w ar was to be made one of pillage and plunder—disgraceful to the age. That some influential persons favor that course, is ton apparent, and it is not unlikely that it may ultimately become the policy of the Administration. Such a policy would both satisfy and gratify the Abolitionist, the enemies of the old Union. For its dismemberment they have labored zealously and ceaselessly and in sidiously for the last twenty years. Mr Spaulding, member of Cungres- from the Buffalo District, New York, in a war speech recently, is said to have stated as an inducement to men to volunteer, that the land of the rebels in the Southern States would in the end he seized and di vided among the soldiers of the Federal army. The Express. Mr. Spaulding's or gan. does not deny that such language was uttered by him, but justifies the sen timent and the policy it avows. The Ex press says: “ We should not regard it as a very dan gerous proposition. Wc rather think it would he a popular doctrine to inculcate that ‘the hoys’ who fight the battles of this war and subjugate the rebellious ter ritory, should share in the ‘spoils.’ There is to be no peace without subjugation, and no subjugation without extermination, under the spirit which now actuates the rebellion—and hence, when we have ex tennihace# the rebels, their estates may as well he divided up among ‘the boys’ who give us the victory, as to run to waste with no one to till and make them pro ductive and useful." Are we to understand that the war we are now prosecuting professedly for the preservation of the Government and the enforcement of the laws, is to be convert ed by Mr. Spaulding and his Republican associates into a war of subjugation, ex termination and pillage ? Henry Clay saw the Danger.— Il-emy Clay saw clearly the danger to which Abo litionism were leading. He was a states man, not a demagogue. He yielded not to public opinion, when he thought public opinion inimical to Constitutional guaran tees, but ever pursued a bold and inde pendent course. Unlike politicians of the present day, he despised popular clamor when he knew it dangerous to liberty. In one of bis letters he tells his friend that he should “ arouse the laboring classes of the free States against Abolitionism. The slaves being free, would be dispersed throughout the Union ; they would enter into competition with the free laborer— with the American, the Irish, the German —reduce his WBgcs, be confounded with him, and affect his moral and social stand ing.” The man who now, following the advice of Henry Clay, seeks to “ arouse the laboring classes of the free States against Abolitionism,” is denounced by the venal minions of the Administration as a traitor to the Government 1 The la boring men are beginning to understand that the Republican organization is con trolled exclusively by Abolitionists —that iii effect it is nothing but an Abolition party. Thi Romantic Neobo or the Tribune hot the Neoko or Reality.—In not the following, which we take frotr. the Albany Argus, true and suggestive? “ It will be remembered that long before the rebellion broke out, the Tribune declared that uni versal insurrection would certainly lake place among the slaves, the moment war began ; and it counted on that as a pre ventive of Rebellion. It has since found out, and now declares, that 'the slaves are elements of strength to the Rebels, raising crops while their masters are fighting.’ Taught by experience, the fallacies of the combined negro and war ethics of the Tribune, let us not accept too precipitately its suggestions about arming the slaves, lest we find to our cost that the arms may be used to our disadvan'agc, if not against us. No reliance can be placed on Aboli tion theories in carrying on the war, for all their predictions based on the Negro as an element of strength against rebel lion, have thus far been falsified by sad experience. In many instances negroes conveyed important information from our lines to their masters.” Sound Advice. —Mr. Seward, in an ap peal to the Illinois Republicans, upwards ot a year ago, said : •GrtifVurtVi—If yoc want ta UK l tfeis Administration, and have it successful and profitable to the country, I implore you to remember that the battle of freedom has been fought and won. Henceforth forget that freedom ever was in danger, and ex ert your best influence now to save the Union. Let it not be said that the Re publican party of the United States won its first, last and only victory over the dis solution of the Union.” What a pity that some of our leading Republican journals and speakers don’t heed Mr. Seward’s wise admonitions. In stead of exerting their “ best influence to save the Union,” they are working for its destruction. Neoko Soi.dieks. —The notorious Jim Lane boasts that he has organized two negro regiments in Kansas, lie says he will make the rebels of the South dread the vengeance of the negroes, which sim ply means that he wdl grant them unlim ited license to rob and assassinate the peo ple of the South. — Six thousand wagons have crossed the Missouri river this year, bound lo Califor nia, Oregon and Washington Territory. < «♦»-* The average price of California wool at San Francisco is 23 cents per pound, and the estimated clip is 5,119,040— worth $1,177,517.
