Indignity offered to the llevolutiounry Fa.
there. F. O. J. Smith vs. Thomas
The concluding portion of the editorial lead
er In Morday’a Advertiser, should not he al
lowed to pass without a careful notice. It
seems to us that, were the DeslUesa bones of
our Revolutionary sires gifted with conscious
ness, such utterances as tha' article contains
would disturb their rest, nnd cause them to
rattle with indignation iu their mouldy sepul
chres. After recapitulating some of the ne
cessarily striugent measuies which the Feder
al governuieut has beeu forced to adopt, to
meet the terrible necessities of a “deplorable
civil war forced upon it by the disimionists of
the South”—niea-uren without the adoption of
which the government would have fallen ill
ruins before the vandal power of reln'llion—
the author of that article impiously says:
It was the same principles of intolerable op
pression and arbitrary rule that roused our fa
thers to a resistance to thet Mother Govern
ment ot Great Britain, and which, in order
more dearly then, and forever, to warn the
world against, a* well as for purpose, of self
jnstitication. they set forth iu the Immortal
Declaration of Independence.
We knew that the Wigfall’s, and Keilt’s,and
other graceless cut-throats of the {youth, dis
regarding the truth set forth by such men as
Alex. IL Stephens,—that SLAVERY “iecu

ent revolution ;n disregarding the statement
of one of the distinguished actors in the South
YIU I CUVlIU/ll W tUIUUICi ,-111*4 f 4U4 tu/r
test i$ between the two forme of eociety which
hate become cetabliehed, the one at the North
and the other at the South,” and that elaeery
garding all such ideas as these, they have pro
faned history, outraged facts, and insulted the
memory of the fathers,by instituting compar
isons between the colonies struggling against
Lord North and the Mother Country, and the
rebel States, in their mad scheme to blot out
the sun of republican liberty. AYe knew that
shameless contemner of everything really free
and democratic—the Loudon Times—had
urged the same thing, and had tried hard to
win the sympathy of all hearts yearning fur
freedom, in Europe, for the rebel cause, by
drawing a parallel between the seceded States
and the thirteen colonies of the British crown
and impiously pretending that the struggle of
our sires for independence of the British yoke,
finds its likeness in the struggle of a slave ol
igarchy to break up the freest government on
earth, to tighten the fetters of the bond
man, and to restrict the area of human free
dom, to establish a government on the
barbarous idea of negro slavery.
But it remained for us to see a citizen of
Maine, late in the nineteenth century, and in
the columns of a Portland paper, offer so gross
an indignity to the memory of our Revolution
ary sires, as that of comparing their holy strug
gle to the wicked rebellion which lias been
precipitated upon a peaceful country by trai
tors baptised in fraternal blood. Our fathers
were wot rebels; they did not rise up against
the authority of the Crown, until that crown
attempted, by force of arms, to tighten the
bonds which were already galling the limbs of
as loyal a people as ever worshipped God. Our
fathers petitioned to a government which tax
ed them without allowing them representa
tion; which compelled them to submit to op
pressive laws in whose enactment they could
have no voice; aud could their reasonable pe
titions have been heeded, and answered in pa
ternal accents instead of the ring of murder
ous musketry, there would have been no Rev
olution ; there would have been no Declara
tion of Independence; there would iiave been
no “Fourth of Julythere would have been
do severing of the cords which bound the in
infant colonies to their proud and aristocratic
Compare the Southern rebellion to this !—
The thought is blasphemous. And yet it is done
by a citizen of Maine, in a paper of Portland!
The rebels at the South petitioned for no
abatement of grievances, asked for no relaxa
tion of laws, complained of no onerous bur
dens. The Constitution they would subvert
was the joint-work of their fathers and ours;
the law they would resist were enacted by
their representatives; the burdens they spurn
ed rested with eqnal weight upon our shoul
ders ; and to no duty were they called, not
a labor were they asked to perlorm, not a sac
rifice to make, not an exaction to submit to,
that did not come home to us with equal force
and press itself upon us with equal imperious
ness. There is not a point of resemblance
between their cause and that of our ante-rev
olutionary sires; not an element common to
the two struggles; not the slightest analogy
between either the principles involved in the two
contests, or the parties engaged in them; and
he who will insult the memory of the past, and
treat with indignity the pure patriotism of an
Adams, ora Hancock, and a Franklin, by com
paring their cause to that of the present re
bellion, or their names with tiiose of Jeff.
Davis, Toombs, and Yancey, must be singu
larly warped in judgment, or perverted in his
political and moral sentiments.
The article iu the Advertiser contains an
extended extract from the Federal Constitu
tion, evidently copied for the mere purpose of
making the following remark, obviously intend
ed as a fling at the present administration:
We will not say who has violated, or who
are seeking to violate these sound safeguards
of constitutional liberty, by construction or
by deed.
Asserting thus by inuendo that President
Lincoln has violated the “safeguards of con
atiiutlonai liberty" either by “construction or by
deed,” the editor of the Advertiser continues:
What we do say and ask all our fellow-citi
zens to rally to our support in, is this, that we
are for these great principles of Government
under all clrcvmttancee, and amid erery ne
cessity; and we are against everybody who,
under any pretext whatever, shall attempt to
supplant, suspend, or abolish them.
The doclriue laid down in the emphatic
language here quoted is, tliat under no circum
stances, and lor no possible pretext whatever,
not even to defend the Capital from invaders,
or the archives from spoliation; not even to
prevent the subversion of the Constitution
or the total overthrow of the Government,
■hail the President depart one iota from the
letter of Uie. written law, as it is htid down in
the books and iu the Constitution. Ordinari
ly we would not controvert such a statement
for a moment; surely not iu a moment of
peace and domestic tranquility.; but we insist
that there may be exigencies when an otlicer
would prove recreant to his iiirrli trust did lie
refuse, through a scrupulous regard for the
mere furmn of the law, disregarding its spirit,
to take a responsibility not clearly authorized
by the letter of the Constitution. Kvils may
arise which constitution makers and law mak
ers never have for foreseen, to meet which
they have made noprovision, and for which they
have provided no remedy; auil to meet such
exigencies there must be somebody to assume,
for the moment, the fearful responsibility—al
ways dangerous, we admit, and never to be
taken except in times of fearful peril.
■ ————gagam—
Take an instance t The Constitution pro
vides, in one of the very clauses quoted by
the Advertiser, that all trials for crime “shall
! be h<4d iu the state where said crimes shall
have been committed.” Regarding even this
provision, the editor of the Advertiser, to
quote liis own words, “is against everybody
who, under any pretext whatever,” shall at
tempt to even “suspend” its operation, and
he is “for state rights in t lie largest sense where
federal rights are not clearly granted.” If
Jeff. Davis could be arrested in Portland lor
crimes committed agaiust the government at
Richmond, or could Toombs be arrested in
Washington for crimes committed in Charles
ton, tiiey must not be held to trial where
taken, but they must be returned to the States
where their offences were committed, there to
be tried by jury, although not a judicial court
exists iu either State that is not steeped in
treason, and scarcely twelve men could be
found to constitute a jury who would not he
found in armed rebellion against the govern
ment! Iu 1805, when Gen. Wilkinson, the
military commandant at New Orleansgurested
the confederates of Aaron lltirr, for reasons to
his own mind sufficient, he sent them to Wash
ington for trial, and though the act was di
rectly in tlie face of the letter of the Consti
tution, President Jefferson approved and
justified his act.
Similar reasons for like departures from the
letter of the Constitution may again exist, and
call for similar assumptions of power. And
here without elalsirutini' tin' idea, we will
simply remark, that it is one thing to usurp
powers not found in the Constitution, for the
purpose of subverting that sacred instrument,
but a very ditferent tiling to assume powers,
where the Constitution may happen to be si
lent, for no evil or sinister purpose, but simply
to repel invasion and to preserve, protect and
defend the temple of liberty, which has been
erected at so much cost, and whose founda
tions were cemented by this bust blood of our
fathers. One of these acts would lie that of a
traitor; the other the dictate of the purest pat
riotism. To show that this is no novel idea,
we quote from Thomas Jetrerson to J. B. Col
vin, Sept. 20. 1810,as follows:
The question you propose, whether circum
stances do not sometimes occur, which make
it a duty in officers of high trust, to assume
authorities beyond the law, is easy of solution
in principle, but soineiiines embarrassing in
practice. A strict observance ol the written
laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a
good citizen; but it is not the highest. The
laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of sav
ing our country when in danger, are of higher
obligation. To lose our country by a scrupu
lous adherence to written law, would be to lose
the law itself, with life, lilierty, property, mid
all those who are enjoying them with us; thus
absurdly sacrificing the end to the means.

Letter from the State Capital,
Return of 1th Maine Volunteers—Appoint
Acocsta, Sept. 7, 1862.
Editors Press :—The War Department have
directed Gen. McClellan to send the remnant
of the gallant Seventh Maine Regiment to
Portland, there to re-organize and recruit,
under the direction of the Governor, and you
will doubtless see, in a few days, that little
band of Spartans, all that remains ol a regi
mant which left the State one thousand strong
“burning with high hope.”
No regiment in the whole service can show
a more glorious record than the 7th Maine.
Let your citizens turn out ami welcome the
returning heroes as the women and children
of Lacedaemon welcomed the handful who re
turned from Thermopylae.
The following appointments have been made
since my last:
Francis W. Sabine of Bangor, Captain, Co.
C, 11th regiment.
In the lOt It regiment, L. Turner of Port
land, 1st Lien. Co. B; John D. Beardsley of
Grand Fulls, Captain, Co. D; Herbert R. Sar
gent of Portland, Captain, Joliu W. Gould,
Portland, 1st Lieut., and Joseph H. Pcrley,
Jr., of Portland, 2d Lieut. Co. E.
For the 1’rean.
If there is (me we eanuot comprehend what
jlattice there is in the action of the Board of
Aldermen in allowing certain claims tor In
juries received by citizens in consequence of
the neglect of the proper authorities to enforce
the ordinances of the city, and rejecting the
claim of another citizen who was iujured in
consequence of the same neglect. For in
stance—one man is injured by slipping on the
ice, because the proper authorities neglected
to have said ice removed, and is allowed $700
damages. Another is run over on the side
walk, and severely injured, by an engine be
longing to the city, running on said walk in
violation of law, and the Aldermen allow the
petitioner leave to withdraw—a privilege he
possessed before. A third is injured by a der
rick, also belonging to the city, and the Aider
men vote him $150 damages. IVe do thiuk
that no jury could be lound in the country
that would call such doings either law or jus
If this question is not properly settled It
should be carried to a higher Court. Wc trust,
however, that the Aldermen, at a full board,
will yet do justice to all concerned. * *
People's Convention.—The call of 1500
“respectable-’ gentlemen of Massachusetts,
for a convention to nominate State oUlcers,was
responded to yesterday by quite a full house at
Faueuil Ilall. The convention was called to
order by Hon. Joel Parker, aud prayer svas
offered by Rev. Dr. Blugdcu, aud Hon. Linus
Child was called to preside. The vice presi
dents were too numerous to mention. Speeches
were made by Messrs. Child, J. G. Abbott, and
others. Hon. Chaki.es Devens, of Wor
cester, w as nominated for Governor. The re
solutions were decidedly tame for such an
occasion and for such a convention.
Ratification Meeting. — Monday, at 2
o'clock, Faueuil Hall was crowded to its full
est extent, to respond to the President’s Eman
cipation Proclamation. Some disappointment
was experienced at the non-appearance of
Gen. Busteed, who was expected to be present.
The^great speech of the occasion was by lion
Charles Sumner, which was published in full in
the evening edition of the Journal aud Trav
eler. The Journal says the speech w as char
acterized by his usual argumentative force,
and oratorical merit. It is needless to say that
it was delivered with graceful power, amid
the oft-repeated plaudits—interspersed w ith a
lew dissenting demonstrations—of its hearers.
The Fast Train—Geo. Francis Train,
whose tla-li and intemperate speeches in Lou
don, appeared so sparkling at the distance of
our American stand-point, seems to be losing
Ids laurels, and, having gone up like a rocket,
is now coming down like a slick. He is en
gaged in making hlaekguarding speeches, aim
ed mainly at Gov. Andrew, Charles Sumner,
ami Abolitionism, using language that would
disgrace a London li h-w oman. In Faueuil
Hall, engaged for a specific purpose, :ifter Mr.
Sumner made his speech on Monday, Train
t attempted U> force his brassy eloquence upon
uu unwilling audience, but the police fbuk him
in hand, and he found out there were some re
strictions upou speech even ill a free couutry.
He is about played out—a Train off the track,
and, in reputation, badly smashed.
