For The Cecil Whig, Democracy vs Despotism, mo. 11. Baltimore, July 25th ’4B. Mi- Editor: —ln my last article, of which this is the continuation, I noticed the triumphs Democracy is achieving over Despotism in Europe, and after pointing at a tendency towards Despot ism in this country through Loco Foco influence, by'which industry antina tional advancement is paralyzed, I call ed upon the people, the legitimate sov ereigns, to look well at the evil, and ap ply an efficient remedy at the ballot box In a government like this, formed upon moral, religious, and political rights, made up of so many responsible heads, each acting as sentinel over the move ments of the others, we are not apt to suspect approaching danger, especially when that danger comes with a royal signet, set by men in high official stations. But wo should remember that every age and country has produced its cliques com posed of men who would bargain their souls like chattels, according to the mea sure meted out from mother earth’s sub treasury, or trample upon law and gospel only to enjoy a little brief author ity. The danger to this country consists in the masquerades by which designing men can cloak their black hearted pro jects. Had James K. folk, on his inau guration day, come forth in Imperial robes, our indignant countrymen would have lashed him with scorpions naked round the world. But he came forth as a republican, and with much unfo-com mendation of his republican virtues, en tered upon the most high handed exercise of power, that ever disgraced our Exec utive annals. Let us turn our attention to this subject. It is well known that the war with Mexico had its origin in a flagrant as sumption of power by James K. Polk. I do not propose to discuss the justice or injustice of that war, with the many im portant topics growing out from it, since they are so familiar to the reading pub lic. My purpose is to show, by this Executive-war-power, how incongruous the spirit of the Loco Foco party is to ! the spirit ot our republican government las originally designed. Should we go back to the time when T.oco|Focoism was spawned, and follow it up to the present Administration, its constant tendency to absolute power will be sadly visible- That tendency has received its grand finale in James K. Polk, who, to render his administration more signal, and put a double bridle in the jaws of the Amer ican people, has arrogated to himself the most unconditional sovereignty that a Despot could claim—the power to make war. The (ramers of the Constitution were much troubled in drawing a proper line between the Executive and Legislative branches, by giving to each’its own ap propriate sphere of operation. They ab rogated the idea, and that justly, which Locke and Montague held forth, that Ex ecutive and Federation should bo united in one and the same body. This, when excicised in the most trifling instance, amalgamates opposites, and lends to con solidation, which cannot but be danger ous to the stability of our government. Apprehending this difficulty, they gave to Congress the power to make laws, and reserved for the Executive the power to carry those laws into execution; or, in other words, “to see that the laws be faithfully executed.” Has Jas. K. Polk confined himself to this duly so specifi cally laid down in the Constitution! Let us see. We have shown,’what is also support ed by an express grant, that Congress alone has the power to make war. What is more, war cannot constitutionally ex ist, without a previous declaration by that branch of government. All emi nent Jurists have pronounced the war making power to be one of the highest acts of sovereignty, anil one which should be surrounded by every possible safeguard- But did not James K. Polk bring about a stole of war, which termi nated in an actual war, and then notify Congress for the first time, that war ex* istedf What greater crime than this need a man commit to make himself a despot, and that of the blackest hue! The Pres ident is Commander in chief of the Amer ican forces, only so far as to carry out the will of the people, expressed through their representatives in Congress. He is to execute, and that implies a previous act of legislation by the proper authority. But disregarding all this, like Constan tine who tore down the arch of Trajan to build his own, he has demolished Con gress and adding legislation to that of executioner, swayed most despotically over_the fallen rums. The most that the administration can claim in justification of its proceedings in this regard, is contained in a few lines penned by Alexander Hamilton. That Statesman’s high Federalism, and attach ment to the British form of government is well known. He says: “The Execu tive in the exercise ol its constitutional powers may establish an antecedent state of things, which ought to weigh in the legislative decisions.” This principle in one sense is true, but when incorporated into the Constitution as an elementery feature, that moment we become no more nor less than an elective monarchy. If Congress is empowered to do its own as signed work, the question is forever set tled, because matters of expediency are of less moment than matters of law. In whatever light we view this subject, the same conclusion is reached, that the Pres ident assumed a prerogative not guaran teed by the Constitution, and which should make him liable lo impeach ment. We might charge upon the President other acts: such as levying taxes, assess ing duties, and establishing a civil gov ernment in an enemy’s country, but the one discussed, is sufficient under the ar ticle to prove the position first taken, that there is a ‘moral conflict now going on inj this country between democracy and despotism;’ between the democratic whig party, and the despotic locofoco faction, that is to decide very soon whether we are to be freemen or slaves. Whether the popular branch of the government, which is the iie u ideal of our political sys tem, is to be made nugatory by a single man with diadem and crown; or, work out for us, by its liberal operations, a glo rious destiny. Whether we are to go on fiom prosperity' to prosperity, develop ing our internal resources, encouraging o ' o o industry in all its ramified forms, or be come, what we are fast verging to,a bank rupt and king-ridden people. In fine, whether the American eagle is to take an upward flight towards tho sun, or continue to stoop and stoop until its graceful wings are sadly draggled in the mire. The repiescntativcs of the two parlies are Taylor and Cass. One, has made his home on the battle-field, toiling through dangers seen and unseen, not for himself but for his country. The other has hung like a vampyre at the public money-box through an unimportant life. One, by the silent watch-fires of the night, has studied deeply our system of government untainted by party drills, and undisturbed by the demagogue’s cant. The other has studied sufficient for practical purposes, i. e. to make a practice! demonstration on government money, and has always been the chosen tool of a corrupt faction. One, will lead us “into green pastures and by the still waters.” The other would sink us down to where the “hand of resurrection” could never come. That wisdom may direct the reader in his choice, is my concluding wish for the present. E. C. (To he Continued.) Domestic Kenis.
