THE DAILY EVENING TELEGIUHT. PHILADELPHIA, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25, 1800.
TEE 2HEW YOEK PRESS. uncitJAL or IX IONS OF leading JOVLXA18 vrox mmiKM lone. OXrillD 1.VKKT AT FOB IVKHIKO TF.LGItAPn. Without Newpnpcis. From the Tribune-. . A printer' strike lately reduced Richmond lo that itnte of moral bWepflnes and social seen, rltj which Mr. Ilfcry A..ViBO once compliu cenlly claimed for his own eonKrcB.ional . Djs "trict. For little while there were no newspapers la Richmond; and, utrange to say, the deficiency does not seem to have been rcliHhed, even by the most low-ppirited admirer of (liat bygouo age which both created and consoled Mr. Wise. In the aWnce of definite InfoimHtion, rumor bad it all 1U own wild way. Canards flews as thickly as Homer's flies around a mllkinR pail) the rnrat dirtricta were feverish with falsehoods for which nobody was responsible too city swarmed with peripatetic retailers of quite Ideal intelligence, and be who could talk the loudest and the long est, and tell the toujjbef-t story, became the ereat man of ihe itropgcry and the revered prophet of the barber's shop ' ! : , To a bewildered people, it was as if printing hi.a utjver been invented; and, whatevor may bave heretoiore been iho sublime indifference of Jtichmond to the ex.Htence of the nineteenth century, it was not a little embarrassed by this midden icvival of middle-age want and monkish expedient; and, when an adjustment of thnlr difficulties enabled the newspapers once more to appear, w may be sure that they brousht a scute ot relief and a palpable promotion of the public serenity. Ana this little event reminds us of what would be tho condition of our own beloved city and Its environs. If morninsr, and noon, and evening publication should come to a sudden stand-still, and the clatter of Mr. Hoe's machines bo no loiiper heard in Priuting-IIouse Bqunre. There arc hypercritical gsntlemen who not only fatidiouf ly condemn the literary exe c ution of newspapers (of the difficulties attending .'which, thoy know and can know nothing), but who go further, und iusinute solemn doubts of . their , moral influence who regard them as at best a necessary evil; but " who, ' nevertheless, take them, pay tor , them and read them, who are uulippy with tiieui, but would be t-tiil more unhappy witn , out them. It is only the man who pleases to divest himpelf ot all social relations and respou ' sibiltties who would wish to remain in igno rance of events. A hermit living filty miles ironx a respectable Cook-shop, upon parched peas and messes of herbs, who never changes his shu t, and goes always bareiooted, is naturally indifferent to tbo fluctuations of the cattle mar ket, cares nothing for the rise and fall of cotton, and has a i-pirit elevated far above thj vicis situdes ot leather. Having satisfied himself tnat his soul Is to be saved by frequent flagellations " and intrequent ablutions, he no more wants even a religious iouruul than he want soap or a tine toothed comb, Convinced that the world is riif-hiug to ultimate perdition; his only care is not to be swept along by the current, while irom his high and dry point of advan tage be looks into an unearthly future, and forgets, so far as possible, that he has many millions ot fellow-creatures. We can not imagine Saint Simeon Siylites taking in tho Tribune or any other newspaper; but men who difler from that worthy, who do not live by themselves upon the tops of pillars, do not shun the sight of the human face aud the ' sound of the human voice, do not Ignore com mon duties, and are rationally gregarious, will need a newsuancr as much us they Lecd a towel or a tailor. There are some things which. solitary aud alone, we can do for cuielves; but the majority of human enterprises depend, lor their success upon an enlightened knowledge ot what the world has done, or is doing, in the same field and direction. This alone can pre- vent constant mistakes, the misdirection of energy, the repetition of obsolete experiments, most lamentable failures, or clumsy and round about achievements. So. too, if a man pleases to accej t relations to a go eminent, ana to put mm' sell and his f amily and his property under its pro tection. he is as direclv interested in the oiniS' sions and commissions of that Government a in the outcomes and incomings ot his household servants or of his journey iuen. He should bo ashamed not to vote: but he should be still more ashamed to vote ignorantly or blindly, or as tho mete tool of a sharner-eved man than him self. Voting presuppo-s the making-up of one's mind; and that in turn presupposes a basis ot tact lor the decision. This it is the business ot the tewspaner to furnish. But this ' is not a 1. Newspapers are naturally advocates, The statement and the defense of opinion neces sarily follow the widest lossession of facts, and the lareest survev of nubile auairs. In this re sped, newspapers should be the helpers but inter the masters of their readers, the vehicles of suggestive discussion, the winnowers of truth lrom falsehood, the vehement antagonists of error, the earuebt defenders of the rieriit. This is what they are, if not in practice, most certainly in theory; and it is jubt in proportion as they are true to this htph standard that they are upetui or otuerwise, ' But vhey have no protection against the intiU' euces ot passion, of prelurtice. or ot venality, As they ar mechanically the masterpieces of Human ingenuity, so sometumg ot numan in firmity attaches to them la their best estate; and thev must be accepted by the public, which depends so much upon them, not as oracles incaDable of mistake, but as entitled to that credit which, by an aver ace of sagacity and of honest dealing with their readers, they may have spent many years in earning, it is em' phaticaily its general character which gives tho newspaper a public influence. It is true that, either lrcm habit or some other adventi tions circunibtance, men will long continue to read a newspaper lor which they have no very lively respect: but they laugh at it in their sleeves or in their speech, and risk neither their money nor their reputation tor sagacity upon its soundness. Nobody can be better aware of the deficien cies of the daily papers than we are; but will our worst critics be pleased to imagine the country without newspapers at all? the doubts, the nervous anxieties, the blind igno rance, the thick-thronginsr blunders, the misap pr hensions. the purposeless activity, the inde cisive Inertia hich would tolloT. The public journal Is the public memory, the diary ot so ciety, everybody's ledger and 'Commonplace book and alumnae; and without it, until a sub stitute had been found, everything would be at crobS-purpos.es and contusion. Tennessee In Congress. From the Timet. On Monday we had a fine illustration ot the style In which Congress has abdicated its con stitutional functions in regard to the admission ot its members. It is now six or eight weeks since Mr. Bingham, on behalf of the Recon struction Committee, reported a resolution pro Tiding tor the admission ol Tennessee into the Union. lie has been called on two or three times to call it up for consideration, and has half promised every time to do so '"soon,," but has never done It. XThsn the matter was pressed Mf.ou Congress at the outset of the session. It was urged tnat lniormation was wantcd-t-that the Committee was taking testimony as to the titnefs of Tennessee for read mission, and that nothing could be done until this was closed. Yet nearly two months have clawed alnnn thn testimony was reported, printed, and laid before Congress and the country, and still not the slightest disposition is manlfesCed by the Com mittee or by Congress to give the matter any Attention. ' i Mr, Latham, a Union member irom West Vir ginia, on Monday offered some resolutions for the netion of Congress upon this; subject. H'liey - were promptly ruled out of order by the Speaker The whole matter was in the bnndu of the Com mittee on Reconstruction, and it was out of order lor the House lo attempt to do or say any thing ab ut it. When the Committee seea fit to call the subject up, it hns a fight to do so; until then Ceugre's is i owerless. lenmseee bn bad a State Government, regu laily elected by the loj alpeopl", under a con stitution republican in lorm, witu Courts duly organized and in lull operation, for the last two years. Her people have sent, m their represen tatives to Congress, as loyal, true hearted, -and trustworthy men as live on the tace of the eartli able and ready to take the test-oath men who have perilled life and everything dear lo them for the salvation of ihe- Union, and who represent constituencies equally loyal and wi ll dispoped. Every one of these facts Is clearly ectabltehed' by the testimony taken by the Re cophirucilon Committee; and every witness sum moned by that committee, without a solitary exception, testified in the most direct and em phatic tcims flint the admission of these loyal mem beis would have the best posiblc effect In developing und strengthening the loyal senti ment ot Tennessee and every other Southern ftate. Yet the Reconstruction Committee will neither do anything, nor suffer Congrcs to do anything, towards bringing about this most desirable result. How much lonerer Is tbis state of things to be continued? What possible good purpose dois it serve? The Withdrawal of the French from Mex ico Ihe Official Notification. From the Ihrald. . We have the information from Washington that Count Montholon, the French Minister, on Saturday last waited upon the Secretary of State and "presented the formal adhesion ot the French Government to tho American prlnciplo of non-intervention as explained by our Govern ment;" that the Emperor Napoleon kiudly and cordially replies to the United Statec, aud en gages to withdraw his troops in three detach ments, one of thqm next November, aud the others in May and November, 18G7. An abstract ot the coirtpondenco on tue subject, in answer to a recent resolution ot the House of Repre sentatives, was laid before that booy on Monday by Secretary reward. Accepting tnese proranes oi japoicun in goou faith, and with the lull bvliefr that he has relin quished the "grand idea" suggested by Marshal forey, we may now cousiot-r tne Mexican ques tion settled in lavor ot the Monroe doctrine. We accept the cngagemenc to withdraw the French troops as the surrender ol the whole case by Nutxjk'OD, the Inevitable alternative re sulting Horn tho downmu ot Jcfi. JJavia. upon this point it is not unlikeiv that in the outset Najioieon was led astray by tne dazzling repre s niations ot Slidrll ot the monopoly ot Ameri can commerce by a Southern coni'e leracy, and a Fiench piotectorato in Mexico, established under a linn alliance on the basis of free trade. Napoleot, however, Is prepared for a graceful retirement, .lie talis ouck upon his Mexican indemnities, lor these be looks to Maximilian, and to secure them ho delays the recall of the last instalment of the Freuch troops till Novem ber, 1HC7. In the interval Maxmnliau mut "mate his bay while the sun shines; ' but as it appears that no French reiuforcenienrs are going in to supply his losses in the field, we shall not bu surprised if the removal ol iho first detachment were to start his. Imper al Majesty of Mexico out of "the balls of the Montezumas" on the road to Vera Cruz. Tho Ltborals, in some mys terious way, arefbeginnlng to be supplied with ellicient arms, and from their present activity between Watanioras and Mazatiau we are in clined to think that the depaiturc ot the first instalment ot tho French will be tue signal tor a combination of Liberal movements which will Give them their capital. it must oe remembered, meantime, tnat, ac cording to Napi leon, the Government of Maxi milian is a creation ot the Mexican people, as exprcsted in a special election in the presPo.cc ot the French troops. After the withdrawal of those troops, therefore, and the settlement ot certain French bidemnities, it the Mexican peo ple srould loieibly expel or earnestly invite Maximilian to remain aud rulo over them, it is their affair, and not JJaroleon's. He is pledced to the Fiench people, alter the lashion of the Jlonapartes, to respect the popular will. Thus the nephew and his uncle were each confirmed as Emperor ot the French, ami thus Maximilian, by the popular will, as the French have been made to understand it. is Emperor of MpxIco. While Napoleon, then, w ithdraws his troops in deierence to the United States, he leaves Maxi milian ptill subject to the will of the Mexican people. This is doubtless the understanding between Louis Napoleon and Andrew Jonnson, and we incline to the opinion that it will be perfectly satislactory to Preoident Juarez and the Mexi cans. In "the formal adhesion of the French (;ovtninient to the American principle of non intervention" we secure all that we desire from Napoleon, and it would be absurd to suppose that Austria, with or without his consent, would undertake to establish a transatlantic imperial protectorate w hich Napoleon has formally aban uoned as a blunder and a failure. It is stated that the Secretary of State has given instructions to our Minister at Vienna re garding the sending of Austrian soldiers lo Mexico, and that he protests against such action in tf rms that cannot be very well niuunderstood by the Austrian Government. Qualifications ot Members of Congress From the Daily Xtwt. The moie moderate and honest ot those mem bers of Congress who, while they support the measures of the radical leaders, are yet un w illing to admit that, in so doing, they are not only overriding the Constitution, but trampling into the dust all the greut principles which have given vitality to oui inbtitutions and made us a great and prdsperous people, Und themselves bard put to it to rind arguments to justify their course, even to their own consciences. And it frequently happens that they have no resource but to shelter tlieir acts under some broad asser tion of a general principle, which, under differ ent circumstances, they would hesitate to make, and w hich, if their judgments were net clouded by the mists of prejudice and tbe fumes of pas sion, they would see to nave no aaequate ioun- tlution either in fact or law. One of the most striking ot these is to be found in the argument by whictt they .justify ihe expulsion ot Mr. Stockton and the re fusal to admit the Senators ana Representa tives from the Southoru Stutes to their aeati in the Houses to which they are respectively accredited. The clause ot the Constitution which provides that each House shall be the .judge of the election, returns, aud qualifica tions ol its own mourners, gives us, say tnese gentlemen, absolute power over the whole subject. There i& no limitation whatever to our discretion. This, it seems to us, is a radi cal error, and one whose mischievous conse quences are incalculable. Even where a grant of power is made without any limitations expressed, its exercise is always to be con trolled b a sound discretion, ana ougnc not to be stretched to suit the caprices of those in whose hands the power is, lor the time beine, lodged. And it is, moreover, neces sarily limited by precedent, and by those im plied restrictions which tuny be reduced by reasonable construction from the terms of the grant itaell. And it seems to us that there is, in the Constitution itself, a very material limi tation npon the absolute powers claimed under the clause reierred to. Neurly the whole of the tiiEt article ot the Constitution Is devoted to the legislative department of the Government, and it provides, f eriatim. who shall be represented, how they shall be renrenpntcd. what shall be tha powers and duties of the representatives, etc., All lis sections are, tneretore. m part materia, and should be construed together.- Now; the second section define the qualifications of a member of the lower House; and the third serf tloo la like manner defines the qualifications of a Senator. Suppose a Senator presents hiuiself tor aamisMou, wun proper creaentials, and a dcubt arises whether he possesses the, eouatltu tionnl qualifications, which, in the cae ot a Senator, are that he must be thirty years old, that he must bave been nine years1 a citizen of the United Stales, and that he must, have been, ut the time oi his election, an inhabitant of the btijfe be assumes to represent, how is it to be tenledr W ho shall investigate and dec de whether lie docs or dues not possess the re quisite qualifications? IbeiTamcrs ot tbe Constitution, anticipating that such a cae m'etit arise, provided in the Mill section Ihflt tbe lioiue to which the appli cant w as accredited should bave power to decliio the point. Hut will any fair-minded man claim that the por to decide the naked question ot fact, whether an Individual does or does not ' possess certain specified qualifications, lmnlies the power to prescribe the qualifications them selves!, . What would bo thought, ot a judge who. in trying a felon, should ulvo a new definition of Ihe felony,"and make that a crime which the law did hot so regard ? . What a howl of in lis nation would be raised 1 And yet his usurpation would not, in our judgment, be one whit grestor than that of Congress in the premises. They may inquire into the elections and ascertain vt't ether they have been held In accordance with law; thry may inquire into the returns and ascertain whether they are genuine or forgd, whether they are In jiroprr form or not: ana tbey may inquire whether a member elect has ot has not tno qimlificatioiis prescribed in tbe Constitution, but they can no more alter them than they ran chance the tenure of their own office. And they know full well that their afrmpt to do o Is a gross and palpable usur pation of powers never intended to bo conferred upon them. The Noithein Pacific Rallioad. From the World. We understand that the House Committee on tbe Taciflc Eailroad have perfected a bill in aid of a railroad from Lake Superior to Puget Sound, which is the begiuuing of a new policy on the part of Government. Our rcadeis do not need to be informed that. In our Judgment, building railioads is no part of the business of a Government, however desirable It may be that railroads should be built. But such are not the opinions prevalent in the national councils, and strict constructionists can only hope to mitl eate as much as possible the expense and the injustice ol. such stretches of the governmentiil sphere. In this case tbe committee take the around that railroads nm-t b? built, not with money from tho Treasury, but by private enter prise, and that whatever aid may be given by the Government, there- must be reimbursement on the part ot ihe company. The provisions of the bill are as follows: The company must build twenty-live miles ot first-class railroad aud telegraph line. When t'nut is done, when it is accepted by the Government, the Company is to have the inter est ot its stock at six per cem. on a fixed amount per mile, euaianteed tor twenty years. At the same time the Government reserves one-half oi the proceeds of the lands, which, by the charter, have been granted to the Company, also twenty-live per cent, of the gtoss earnings until the reimbursement is complete. The Com pany ore j rohibited from issuing any bonds and rhey are lo construct their road with American iron. The capital block of the Company is one hundred millions, but the amount of etoclc on which tho interest is guaranteed will fie onlv about fifty-seven millions, to be determined by the length ot the road when the same shall have been located, 'ihe interest of sixty mil lions is three miliion lour hundred and twenty thousand, to be paid out per annum when the road Is completed. ' lbe friends of this road fim', as they think, lit the report ot the Commissioner of Public Lauds, proof that the Government will be reimbursed long before the twn y years' guarantee has expued. Ai out six bundled thousand acres of land were taken up in Minnesota alone during 18G5, mostly along the line of railroads now in prepress. This, at two dollars and a half per acre, the minimum price fixed by Congress on the lands among the Northern line, would yield fifteen hundred thousand dollars. Sufrpose that the Company should put down two hundred miles during tbe next twelve months, on which the internet is guaranteed at the rate of twenty thousand dollars per mile, !,he interest would be two hundred and forty thousand d.illars only. Now, it a like amount of lands were disposed bt during that tmie as were sold last year, the Treasury would acquire a surplus of twelve hun dred and sixty thousand dollars. The sale even of one hundred and fifty -six sections (100,000 acres) of the land which has been granted to the Company is expected to reimburse the Gov ernment tor "its aid in constructing the two hun dred miles. The highest amount per milo guaranteed in the monnain section is oulv fitly thousand dollars. The friends oj,. the road thus consider tbat the Government is nut only secured iroia loss by tbe provisions of this bill, but that there is a eood prospect ot a lar?e revenue from lands which will remain worthless till a railroad is built. Among the gentlemen engaged in this enter piise are some of the ablest railroad managers ol the country: Hon. J. Grecory Smitli.flate Governor of Vermont, and President of tho Ver mont and Canada line; Hon. Onslow Stearns, President ot the Northern New Hampshire; George StaTk, Manairer of tbe Boston and Lowell: Hon. E. S. Tobey. President of the North American and Liverpool Steamship Com pany, and other gentlemcu of New York" and the Northwest. A movement is on foot by Enclish capituli-ts to open a line rrom Lake superior to isrihsu Columbia, wholly through British terri'ory The ricfiiiess of the Cariboo mines, the fertility ol the Saskatchewan country, and the necessity of biudiue the Provinces toeether in connection with the confederation scheme, has awakened new zeal upon the suDiect. . It is ihe intention ot the managers of the Northern Pacific to en p nee in their work at once, and push it to a speedy completion, pro' tided aid ia granted by the Government. The grunt of land which tas already been made is liberal: but in these times, with the Govern meut in tbe money murker, paying seven und three-tenths per cent, lor money, "it is idle for a private company to expect to obtain oue huii' drcd millions ot capital tor such an enter prise: but, with a guarantee tor the pavment of the interest tor a term of veurs, they think the carital can be readily obtained. The proposed road runs throueh a section of country separated from Colorado, Utah, und Nevada by a high mountain range. It is Irom five to seven :i mdred miles distant from the Central. There is no antagonism between the two lines. Both will be usetul. Montana con tains thirty thousand inhabitants. Cities and villages are springine up all over the territory at the headwaters of the Missouri. Thp rush of emigration to that section is unparalleled. Hal liduv's 6tages are crowded as. never before. About filty steamers are to leave St. Louis in April for the upper Missouri ! Emigrant trains are fitting out in Miunesota and Iowa. General Pope has lound it necessary to issue orders re gulating their movements, to protect them from tbe Indians. It Is a twent.v:our davs' ride over land, by staae. to Vireinla City (1700 miles). liv river tbe lime Is forty days, and the distance ?4(I0 miles: bv emigrant train, sixty. Hut hv thp proposed railroad the time will be shortened to thirty-six hours from St. Paul! Idaho, Wash ington, and Oregon would doubtless be greatly Deueniea oy me opening oi sucu a roaa.
