TUESD4Y, JANUARY 2, IMG. JUceting of the Union State Central Com . mittee. Bepfom), Pa December 20, 18':.". The Union State Central Committee of Pennsylvania will meet Id one ol the Committee Rooms ot' the llotthe of Representatives,, in Ilarrinbnr;, on Krldav. the lDth of January, A. D. lHtifi, at 3 o'cloe'k I. M , lor the purpose of tixin iho time lor holding the next State Convention and trans acting such other bu Fin ess as may be presented tor consideration. Jotix Cessna, Chairman Union State Central Coniniit!e'. Onr State Legislature Its Duties and It Privileges. These assembled this morning at the State Capital the Legislature which is to guide our State through that depressing period which always succeeds a time of extraordinary ex citement. Our civil polity', like the human frame, must have a depression in correspond ence with the previous unusual exertions, and it is the gravest duty of a legislator to recu perate the strength of a Commonwealth with out the use of unwholesome tonics. Such will be among the duties of the members of our State Legislature, and to successfully per . form It thej must exercise discretion, possess. . ability, and have a talent and experience which we greatly doubt whether they possess . The caucus nominations made yesterday were . of course unfavorable to Philadelphia. Mr. James Kenny, the nominee for Speaker of the House, and whose election totvk place this morning, is, of course, a member from the country, while the old Clerk and his assistants will without doubt be rechoscn. In the Senate the Speaker was elected last ' year, so that the only officers are the Clerks, all of whom Lave been elected. We hope that honesty, devotion to State, not party in terests, and an unswerving devotion to free dom and duty, will be the characteristics ol 1 the session. The immorality and bribery which has been too olten prevalent in the : capital, can be checked it the members de sire. It is in their, own hands whether they acquire the reputation of respected, honora ble legislators, or whether they be placed upon the catalogue of their corrupt, dishonest, worthless predecessors. ' The issues which they will be ca'ledupon to settle are of vital interest to our State. If they but do their duty, protect our trade and encourage our manufactures if they put forth the mnited influence of our legislation in fayor of our rights, they will be able to guide the State through this roost onerous period of reaction. If they fail to do right, and waste their energies upon sell-ag?randizement, they will blast the private character and seriously injure the State. Let them decide. Either way is open to them, and it is for them to choose which way is right. Is Philadelphia to become a Japanese City? Tub Japanese city of Yeddo was lor centu ries shut up from the world. The jhips and steamers of other countries never ruffled the waters of the Bay of Yokuhama. In the words of a Japanese author, the following , reasons are given lor this seclusion : (iCos - Fvcres never spoke of gain, wishing to check the lust of it in its source. This also was the reason why my ancestors cut off all intercource of foreign nations with Japan." We are to infer from this that commerce is supposed, even by the ignorant Japanese, to be a source of wealth. We are ashamed to write it. but no citv in . the world with as magnificent a harbor, as great a population as Philadelphia possesses, is as much like Yeddo. At this day, with the Delaware spreading its deep and broad waters .the whole length of the city, with eight hun dred thousand people crowding its shores, we are literally without direct communica tion with the other ports ol our own country. A few lines form the exception, but this is the rule, and New York and Baltimore con trol the steam coastwise trade of the Union. This disgrace is the greater, because Phila delphia at one time was as far superior to New York in commerce as ehe is now in manufactures. How we allowed the power we possessed to pass away into weakness, it would be useless to inquire; the question lorcei upon us is whether we can regain it. ' Certainly, if we would follow ths Japanese, and, like Confucius, cheek the abuse of wealth by dispensing with it altogether, we had better continue the indifference of the past ten years ; but if we believe that the city would be made happier by more prosperity, we had better make sure that the present effort to establish lines of steamships to South ern porta is successfully can led out. A num ber ot our leading merchants have declared that Philadelphia must lose her manufacturing superiority, and cannot be developed In pro portion with other cities, unless she has ade quate means of transportation to accommo date and Increase her business. They have held meetings, and appointed committees to raise subscriptions, and have alreidy obtained upwards of $400,000, for the purpose of cre ating lines to the principal ports of . the South. They are workinc for the good of the entire community. We believe they have set themselves to this work as shrewd busines. men, who want to make a good investment; but we also eive them credit for public spirit and civic pride. Their plan is before the public, and it only remains to see whether merchants and manufacturers TITO DAILY KVKN1KG TKl.KGUAI'U 1'HH,AI)KU1HA, TUICSDAY, will sustain it. The argument in its favor is irn sistible. Tg it not plain that Philadelphia cannot successfully continue to compete as a seller with other cities that surpass her as a sender? Merchants abroad prefer to buy in New York or BaMmore, because thence they can (ret direct transportation for their goods, while here we have no steam lines, and, at cost of money and fme, must send our manufac tures to rival cities for exportation. And this, too, at a time when the South is.becomlng the great customer of the North ; when her people want everything, and the competition to sell is increasing evory day! There never was such an opportunity offered to Philadelphia to recover her lost trade. But now we are locked up. The waters of the Delaware are wasted in the ocean. And while we are idle the wharves of New York are crowded with steamers, and its whole river-front is a scene of ceaseless activity. Baltimore has four steamships to Liverpool ; she contemplates a line to Hamburg and to Bremen ; her steamers run regularly to New Orleans and Savannah. We alone are Idle. Vessels with their rich freight pass Delaware Bay as if it were the mouth of a creek, and we are not unlike the inhabitants of Yeddo, who wondered when they first beheld a fleet. Are we then to continue to degenerate, and to become at last a Japanese city in America? Mexican l'eonnue How Southern Slavery will be Re-established. Theius are many ways ol affecting an object by other than direct means. It is easy (or an insolvent debtor to retain his property by making an assignment of it to his wife ; so also is it easy or a people to accept the universal freedom declared by the victors, and at the same time continue slavery under a more euphonious title. The spirit which has been evinced by the South is such as to clearly indicate that were it possible the blacks would continue in a servitude as degrading as that from which the force of Northern valor has rescued them. It is, therefore, not the ab sence of the de3lre, but of the opportunity, which prevents its re-establishment. Yet with this knowledge before us. we are gradually giving into the hands of the Southern planters the power U make any provisions relative to the future ot the blacks, relying on our law forbidding slavery to checkmate any oppres sion, and render illeeal any attempt at human bondage. From letters we have received, and from the tone adopted by the Southern papers, we can entertain no doubt but that at the earliest opportunity the system of peonage, which is a characteristic of Mexico, will be transported into the Southern States. The empire of Maximilian his set us an example as to how a Government, while it has forbidden slavery, can establish a system as conducive to tyranny and oppression as any cede of servitude existing at the time of Saxon serldom, or anions; the captives of the Bey of Tunis. How this can be done is shown by an able message Irom Secretary Seward, in reply to a resolution of the Sen ate. We will see how ihe plan which was adopted in Mexico worked on the 10th of Sep tember. Hon W. H. Cobwjn, acting Charge d' Affaires of the United States to Mexico, lorwarded to the Secretary of State a series of decrees from Maximilian relative tothe status of the black emigrants who should be induced to emigrate to that country. The following regulations are the most important, as they form the framework for the establish ment of peonage. Although it is declared thut every person, upon touching Mexican soil, becomes free, yet the succeeding provi sion rendered null the original assertion. Each "laborer" is bound to Join himself to a master, and to contract with him for a series of years, not less than five, nor more than ten. In return for his labor he is to receive wages," one-fourth of which are to be de posited in a bank of the employer. If he (the "laborer") should become Indebted to his pro prietor during these ten years, he can be held in bonds until the amount of indebtedness is cancelled. By such an ariangement it is evi dent that with but little difficulty the whole life of the servant could be made one long bondage. ; The feudal system has been transplanted to our times. The serf is compelled to attach himself to some lord, who agrees to give him a miserable pittance, and finally, in a fit of starvation and need, he Bells his birthright of freedom for a mess of pottage. The same system against which the Government ol the United States is protesting because of its establishment in Mexico to-day, is being gradually brought Into full force within the bounds of our own territory, under. aggra vating circumstances. The South, with that ability which has always characterized its leaders, immediately upon the failure of their Ik be 11 ion determined to be victorious, not by force, but by fraud, deceit, sycophancy, and unscrupulous false hood. In this they have been successful. 'J he Freedmen's Bureau compels the blacks to hire themselves to some master, to contract to work for him at a rate of wages totally in adequate. Should they fall In debt, which they undoubtedly will, then It is the duty of the State Legislature to make all needful laws. Of course the white contractor should not be Injured by loss of money, consequently the black will have to work off his debt. As the rate he receives is not sufficient to support him. his burden, like that of Atlas, will be constantly Increasing; he will never once reach to freedom, but see it gradually receding from him, despite all his efforts. In ten years the whole black population will be wcrking off their debts, under the power of the employer, for either he must continue to labor and be oppressed, or else be arrested for debt, and spend his days in a county jail. . Thus will we have the accursed system re established over all the South. We may call it peonage, or indebtedness, or justice, or whatever soft sounding name may be desired, but it Is slaveiy, as iniquitous and as unjust as that of Barbary or South Carolina ten years ago. Though Sa'an appear in the guise of an angel of light, yet is he as evil and as power ful as when his costume is the traditionary hoofs and horns. Because human servitude Is disguised, it is only the moie dangerous, for if it appears in its native hldeousncss, then the Christian scntimnt of our country would kill it, but when masked and sugar-coated it may be endured. The action of the State Department In protesting against th; establishment of peonage in Mexico ; Is proper. Is worthy of a free and liberty loving people but let charity begin at home. Let us not only save Mexico from such a curse, but be careful that while we are endoavorlng to cure another we get not the disease ourselves. The cunntng and darkness with which the leaders of the late inwuryent States commenced their efforts, would, had it been persevered In. have secured their triumph. But drunken with their (first successes, they laid aside the veil of hu utility, and claimed as a right what they might have got by supplication. To-day we see their designs, and warn our authorities against them. We have guaranteed freedom to on ignorant and helpless people. Let us make good our word, and not, having re deemed them from slavery, give them over to the curse of peon servitude having dragged them from the jaws of Charybdis, dash them on the jutting of rock Scylla. Let Jrstice be Done t The recent conviction of young Ketchum, charged with the commission of a gigantic crime, and the inconsiderable punishment which a jury ot bis countrymen have meted out to him, indicates a leniency upon the part of the people that Is neither praiseworthy nor commendable. We have arrived at. a nnrtnA when unscrupulous rascals who have means at their command, are licensed by law to act almost without control and ireed from any responsibility. In the L-etchcm affair, a fast youth is permitted to peculate a vast sum from bis own father, and the offended law visits upon blm four years and six months : while in a neighboring city a poor man, with a family to support, was sentenced to the county jail for eight months lor the frightful crime oi appropriating a nam i in our own city, a vounir centleman connected both with the bar and the military service has been twice convicted o( manipulating bounty papeis to his own advantage, and twice par doned; when every day the dock of th Quarter Sessions is crowded wl.h poor wretcnes only guilty ot taxing feloniously something to eat. 'lhere have been within the past year or two immense bank defalca tions. frauds, and swindles in this r.itv. th'nt ' - . 1 have been most mysteriously covered up. One of the clerks ot a prominent bank departed the city, and, after being arrested, If 1 .1 - ms case nas quieuy suDsiaea, ana sank from public vuw. An olllcer of one of our public institutions takes out of the vaults a conside rable amount of coin, and the matter Is hushed up by bis principal refunding the sum and f .. a quasnme inaicimenis. a prominent brnk-nr absconds with $20,000, and is never heard of more. These are a few of the delightful uncertain ties of the law. If the poor go astray and are overtaken in a iault, it is essentially important that an example should be made, not in a vin dictive spirit, but for the benefit of others who may contemplate treading like, devious paths. 1 hey are the Pariahs, the Ishmaels of society. Their hand is against every- man's, and every man's hand is against theirs. But if a kid gloved and brown-atone Bcoundrel Insinuates his hand and abstracts from your safe the hard earned results oi a life of toil and indus try, a benevolent and magnanimous public sentiment grows maudlin over youthful indis cretions, and charges the fault to an overflow of animal spirits. Not many years ago a scion of Kentucky murdered a poor schoolmaster, and a Hardin county jury excused the unfor tunate act because Matt. Ward was a man ol mettle and of fiery temperament. The faith of the people is beginning to waver, and many are beginning to doubt whether trial by jury Is really a public benefit. A rich rascal scarcely ever receives the just reward of his guilt ; there are too many loop holes in the mebhes of the law through which the moBt obese and bloated blackguard can escape from punishment. There is great need Jor an example, and we have an idea that a million-dollar thief sent to the penitentiary for twenty years would be more beneficial to the morals of the community than the con viction of a thousand shoplifters and pick pockets who lack the wherewithal to make their crimes appear venal.
