h To the Editor of the Demoorat:
Beespect for the orator, the errors-as I
humbly conceive them to be-of his polltical
d views, and a love for our Institutions as they
r stand, constrain me to trouble you with a few
remarks on his beautiful and able oration at
the unveiling of the monument.
Our pain at the loss of his leadership in ourn
contest for our rights, however, is much
greater than the hurt of his Parthian arrows
-if I may call the points I now deferentially
e critioise.
Every man who loves the veritles of which
our institutional liberty Is composed, must
C have been pained at some of his best sen
tencee. He sees, and seems to give con
e strained favor to the progressing 'change,
from the union of Slates to a nation, in
I which States are municipal subdivisions. In
9 other words, he countenanoes revolution, or
seems to be reconciled to what he thinks its
s inevitableness.
He would probably say: "It is begun, and
'revolutions never go backwards' "! This
riroverb is very common, but no utterer ever
gives any reason why the revolving should
not go backward to truth, instead of forward
to falsehood and ruin; or why if the revolu
lution be erroneous and wlcked, he should not
oppose it: or, in fine, why our system of ese
tablished institutions should revolve at all.
It should stand firm-right side up-as a fort
or citadel-an impraguable defense of our
"blessingse of lber y"I unchangeable etoept
by additions to its.utrength I!
Many orators and poets affect proverbs,
which they do over in Tupperlan style, think
Sin that thereby they have on the matter in
volved reached the acme of wisdom, and, in
making them attractive and tempting to the
e oplen they gather fact and fanoles from
Scon fields without heeding bounda
ries; they import foreign ideas and sentences,
misapplying them to our affairs; they Pod
snap away, with some brilliant period, the
most serious thoughts and important difl
culties; and, in fine they often make the
multitude swallow familiar witty and pro
verbial sayings as palatable and nutritious,
even If fraught with error, or infused with
subtle poison.
Glorious is oratory when it helps truth and
ustioe and law and liberty; not so when it
furthers wrong and oppression, and tends to
the ruin or pernicious change of our institu
tional freedom I
I will now note a few seeming errors.
Our endeavors to get back to our real sys
tem, and re-establish ourselves on the bed
rook of actual verity, Instead of leaving our
house "bulltupon the sand," are called "re
actionary "and we are admonished that the
"interests' which are being built upon the
hoped-for ruins of our system will not permit
us to go back I
The myth or falsehood called the nation,
covering and hiding from us the associated
commonwealths, and superseding them, is I
represented as an "evolutlon," as if falsehood
and death could be evolved from truth and
life. Darwin teachesno such idea.
When we point to the still subsisting union, I
and the bright and precious truths of our sys
tem piled up to heaven, and hope, like pa
triot, to defend them forever. this trusted I
leader sneers at us in French, as those who
take their memories for their hopes-"gui ont
pi lee soumvenirs po lea esperances.. Ah I
Iriends, let us, despite his counsels, never
cease to renember our inheritance, and to
hope that we shall enjoy and transmit it.
in llustrating the progress of centraliza
tion, he says that the rays of authority from
Washington "illumine" "the most distant
and obscure corners of our vast territory."
Why not, if they do not shine too much, and
burn things? "Avoid overdoing," is a good
maxim in government, as well as cookery.
Let them shine, but let us stop usurpations,
excesses and abusees. This is our duty. We
want Mr. Semmes's aid. In further illustra
tion, as If to exaggerate the extent of our loss
of self government, he intimates that "the
centreal judicial power" and congress, have
acquired jurisdiction over "every important
interest we have, commercial, social or
lltical"'--a most extraordinary and alarm
fng statement, which is obviously untenable. I
But let us pass it by.
He seems in error as to what was included
in the "the lost cause." States seceded-con- .
back to the Union. As they still live-have
their Union-their Federal and home consti
tutions-sad are now in theactual enjoyment
of all their rights (threatened though these
may be), it follows that the lost cause is the
loss of their separate existence as a confed
eracy of States. I speak not of the losses of
life and property, and the morunful realities C
of war and reconstruction. Our union of
commonwealths, then, was not lost. It re- t
mains for us to preserve and enjoy.
As to the change made in our Federal con
stitution, the victor States wrote, years ago,
all they wanted to add, and laid aside the t
pen. They Rave us new citizens, and an ex
tension of civil jurisdiction, leaving, as the
exeoutive force, the same old civil magsie
tracy. The wrongs we hate endured since
have consslated of usurpation and "excessive
administration," which we must henceforth
strive to prevent. They fow from the "higher
law" which means arbltrary power.
Having now-asI venture to hope-reduced
Mr. Semmee's eloquent and polished para
graphs to mere rhetoric, I will try to show
that he is enormously in error, in his main
basis, which consists in a flitppant and Pod- C
,napplan deisposal of what he oharacterizes as
"poltical doctrnes, which the logic of events
has demonstrated to be apeclntrive theories."
He thus "whistles down the wind" "the peo
ple"and all their God-given rights. Facts,
such as the commonwealths-their ulon-
their constitutions-the words and meanings .
of them-hlstory-records-the faith of the
fathere; cannot be hanged by aesertion into
mere "doctrines" or "specilative theories."
He seems to forget that sovereignty, i. e.,
the right of government, must remain in the U
self-governing people, organized as they t
choose to be; and that they have a collective
instinct, and therefore a rink and therefore
a duty, of self-preservation. This is the ulti- P
mate force that must save us, if we all faith- n
fully watch, and work, and wait, instead of
running unrefletingly after the glittering
imperial car, like a motley crowd of boys
after a show.
Most forcibly and correctly, however, does
Mr. emmes state the issues of the war. He
utters none of the froth about two construc
tions of the constitution, one of which
was established by victory. This was
the strong point of ex-Senator Orr,
and therefore may be called an Orrful error.
We have always stood on the solid founda
tion of things as they are, while perfidious
and perjured perversion has long endeavored
by so-called interpretation or construction
(and reconstruction) to radically change, if
not undermine and destroy, the citadel of
our freedom.
I could and would say much more, did time
and space permit. 1 for one expect to stand
with my compatriots on the sacred letter of
the law, to vindicate our noble polity, and try
to prevent usurpation and "excessive admin
istration" as the fathers called it, which real
ly constitute our great evil. Duty only ends
with life. God has given us truth to use, en
Joy and defend; and the gems that we leave
s the muck, or in napkins, or hid, or sold, or
abandoned-either through cowardice, or be
cause "it don't pay, will, at the great and ter
rible conclusion, shine among the recovered
jewels of God, searing our eyeballs forever.
Respectfully, B. J. S.

Mr. Entl is nas turally more of a Jurist
than of a political leader. He has alm and
udicial equipoise, is freer than most men of
prejudices and personal bias, and has attain
ments and abilities tried and admitted by all
Mr. Eustis furthermore is favorably known
throughout the State and would fairly repre
sent the Anglo-Saxon element of our city and
State. His short career in the United States
Senate was unexceptionable, and took him
so far out of minor politics and from the
interests and entanglements of professional
ambition as to point naturally to the benoh.
Judga A. L. Tisabt has adorned the bench
of the Probate Court in this city for the last
eight years, and has won the esteem and con
fldence of the bar no lese by his clear legal
abilities and calm judicial acumen and force,
than by the uniform, digolfled and courteous
impartiality of his manners, and of his
rulings between litigants before him. Few if
any members of our bar have won a place so
high for professional adiplication and acquire
ments, and oettainly no one ever bore them
selves toward the bar or public with greater
modesty and propriety of judicial deport
ment. In that department of our juris
prudence where so few of our lawyers are
profoundly versed, Judge Tlesot has shown
himself learned and highly accomplished, and
his appointment by Gov. Wiltz would give
our Creole population most worthy and so
oeptable representation on the bench.

195 Canal street. Sold by subscription
When a few weeks ago the Knights of Mo
nmus represented in their annual procession
the noted women of history, under the title of
"A Dream of Fair Women," It would have
been of great benefit to most of those unlearn
ed in the history of past ages to have had
some volume to refer to and familiarize them
selves with the characters and actions of the
notable women so well represented by our
carnival organizations. The work here no-
ticed is such a volume, and though it did not
Issue from the press until the carnival was
over, it loses none of its interest for all those
who are curious about what has been accom
plished in the world y women. At this
present stage of the w ,d's progress-when
woman is asserting her claim to equal re
soonsiblities and privileges with the sterner
sex, with so much force and apparent Justice
-the lives of those women who in times past
have swayed the destinies of large portions
of the world are of special Interest and Im
In this elegant volume we have well writ
ten biographical sketches of twenty-one of
the most noted women of whom any histori
cal record exists. Fourteen of the sketches
are embellished by well executed portraits
engraved on steel. The frontispiece is an ex
cellent representation of Egypt's passionate
"With swarthy cheek. and bold black eyes.
Brow-bound with burning gold."
The introductory sketch gives a partly his
torlcal, partly fabulous acoount of Semira
mis, the warlike Queen of Assyria. Follow
ing this comes the story of the constant Pen
elope, faithfully awaiting the return of her
lord from the Trojan war; Cornelia, mother
of the Grachbi, proudly exhibiting her living
jewels; Zenoble, the beautiful and fascinat
ing Queen of Palmyra, whose life reads more 4
like a romance than of an account of a real
existence; Beatrice, beloved of Dante, whose I
spiritual loveliness,
"Vested in colors of the living flame," c
inspired the Christian Homer to sublimest
flights of noble thought and word.
We find here also, told in simple language,
the story of the pure and heroic maid of Or- t
leans, her name restored to its original or
thography, and reading now plain Joan Dare. i
The infamy of her trial and Judicial murder
are effectively represented.
The Catholic Isabella, who furnished from
her own resources the means to Columbus to
fit out an expedition to sail around the world,
and which resulted in the discovery of the
American continent; Lady Mary Wortley I
Montagu, the benefactress of humanity, the
two most beautiful and most unfortunate
qdeens of modern times, Mary Stuart and
Marie Antoinette, find in Mr. Goodrich a
faithful historian. America is represented by
appreciative sketches of Pocahontas, ye gen
tle savage, and of Annie Hasseltine Judson,
the East Indian missionary. The last three c
sketches in the book are devoted to the lives
of Queen Victoria, Charlotte Bronte and the
Empress Eugenle.
The author of "World-Famous Women"
possesses peculiar fitness for the work which
he has so successfully complet&d. He is a son
of the celebrated story-teller, Peter Parley,
and has demonstrated his ability as a writer 1
of biography and history by his previous
work on the "Court of Napoleon."
The book is handsomely printed on heavy
tinted paper, and is elegantly bound in heavy
embossed cloth, full gilt.
The prlce-$3 to $3 50, according to styles
of binding--is exceedingly low for a work of I
this character. It is sold by subscription I

If there is any one principle upon which
the people of this country, without respect to
party, are generally agreed, it is that laid
down by President Monroe in his message to J
Congress, on December 2, 1828, and which is
usually spoken of as the "Monroe Doctrine." I
The enunciation of this doctrine marked an
advance in the foreign policy of the United J
States, and the decided and unequivocal terms
in which it was stated commanded that re
spect which it was entitled to as coming from
the executive of a great and prosperous na
tion. Thls country has been so long at peace I
with all other nations that the political rela- i
tons existing between the United States and I
the governments of continental Europe are
understood by very few. The "Monroe Doc- J
trine," which has been the guiding principle V
of our international politics where it was
applicable, is so little understood that it will ,
probably not be improper to state here its 1
most salient points. The occasion which a
called forth the statement of the Monroe doc- C
trine was the controversy upon the North- I
western boundary question, and the proposed E
intervention of the holy alliance in the af- tc
fairs of the peopleof Central and South Amer
ica in favdr of Spain and Portugal. With
reference to the first point President Monroe E
uses the following language: B
"In the discussions to which this Interest T
has given rise, and in the arrangements in E
which they may terminate, the occasion has b
been judged proper for asserting as a princi- d
ple in which the rights and interests of the C
United States are involved, that the Amern- B
can continents, by the free and independent 4
condition which they have assumed and
maintained, are henceforth not to be con
sidered as subjects for future colonization by
any European power." U.pon the second
point, that relating to the interference with
American independancies by any foreign
power or combination of powers, the lan
guage is still more definite and unmistaka
ble. After reciting the fact that this country 01
had never taken any part in the wars between A
any of the European powers unless its own fr
rights had been invaded, and stating the
interest with which we of necessity viewed
the political movements in this hemisphere, vi
the message continues: ci
"We owe it. therefore, to candor and to the ti
amicable relations existing between the
United States and those powers to declare,
that we should consider any attempt on their to
part to extend their system (of government)
to any portion of this hemisphere as danger- p1
ous to our peace and safety. With exkisting
colonies or dependencies of any European
nower we have not interferred and shall not In
nterfere. But with the governments who st
have declared theitr Independence and main- B,
tained it, and whosie Independence we nave,
mgreat om . and just prlnctples,
menowledgsd, wecoukd not viewanyinterpo
than of -fhb I Mil ae >nilendly
dl tow Y thr e tUnited States."
b Ty `: bobldl and clle stalted
by President Mob~nroe ad previous been
submitted to JefFsongd Madison, and had
received their einre approbation, It has
since its promulgation beeo insisted upon by
all Democratic administrations. The only
time Its applicability was seriously called in
question was during the Whig administra
tion of President Filmore, when Great Britain
assumed a protectorate and dominion over the
bay islanas, which was tacitly permitted by
Filmore and his Cabinet, in solte of the
plain provisions of the Olayton-Bulwer con
vention of 1850, by which both powers (Great
Britain and the United States), bound them
selves "not to occupy fortify or colonize any
part of Central America." It was during the
succeeding Democratic. administration of
Pierce that England was compelled to recede
from her position, although before doing so
the controversy had nearly resulted in war.
The Monroe doctrine has always been upheld
as a great national principle by the Demo
cratic party. Monroe, Jefferson, Madison,
Pierce, Cas, Buchnaan-in short, all ,the
great leaders of the party have insisted on
maintaining it, although it had never received
the official support of the legislative branch
of the government.
The little volume here noticed is a timely
contribution to this subject In view of the
complications that are likely to arise in con
sequence of the proposed construction of the
Panama canal. The control of this canal, if
built by M. de Lessens, would be vested to
such an extent in the French government as
to constitute an infuingaeaentof the puriciple
asserted by this country fifty-seven years
ago, and which has ever since-with the one
exception referred to-been the central idea
of our foreign policy. The results that would
follow the domination of the republic of
Columbia by such a large amount of foreign
capital are not difficult to foresee.
The author of this book gives the present
adminletration a sharp rap on the knuckles
for its delay in acting upon this question of
national importance. At the instance of Sen
ator Gordon, however, a special committee of
the Senate has been appointed to investigate
the matter and report what action is necee
sary by the government to protect the inter
ests of the American people. In addition to
an exhaustive examination of the Monroe
doctrine, the work contains a concise sketch of
the various enterprises heretofore proposed
for the construction of an interoceanic canal.
The book is handsomely printed and bound,
and is a most valuable publication.
