Insanity was heredita-y, we believe, In

he could, uulefc insane, have come to
believe that assassination was a religious

When Mr. Lincoln was murdered,

What hss become of the ten .southern
Mtates that ceased to be represented In
the Congress of the United States in 1861?
Are they still Stile or have they be
come Pwjico ? Are they in the Union
as States, or ovt of It? What effect had
secession or rebellion on their status a
statee; ard is their present tatw, what
ever it may be, tbe cmsequence of that,
or of their oouqueat by the United
These questions seem to he Involved in
the mazes of an inextricable confusion.
This la strikingly evident from the very
difficulty that ono encounters in the
mere endeavour t state the questions so
that the terms cf the statement shall not
themselves be ground of controversy.
Thii we have Ubcd the phrase ' that
DBBBbI lo be represented' in order to
hJt iitify the Statea of whk'h we bad to
speak. Fully to ata'.oihe questions we
should have to use other language, and
atk : What have the political corpora
tions become, that were states of the
American Union at the teginniuir of the
year isil, and which, early in thai year,
so-ceded or attempted to secede from that
Union, or whese people ceased to be, or
endeavoured to cease to be a part of the
one people of th United StaUs, or
which rebelled, or whose people or part
of whose people rebelled against the
United States ? Are they still states,
w are thev Provinces : If not states,
when and how did thoy cease lo beBBcfaf
Was this effected by secession or rtbM
Iion, or by conquest ? If States, are they
stiil in the Union, or their people part of
the people of the Uuited States Are
they entitled to be represented in Con
gress and to sue as States of the Union in
the Federal Courts ?
For thoee who assume that a S'.ate
could not secede from the Uulon, and
therefore that these S ates never fid se
cede, these questions, it seems to u, are
insoluble. They have been contiu jaliy
argued during almost three ye urs, and
the only result of all the argumentation
baa been to cover the whole matter with
a more and more impenetrable fog.
Nobcdy convinces others, or seems to
be able logically to state the grouads of
bis own convictions : and the whole difc-
ctwion is a mud.i:e and a jumble.
Twenty-two of the twenty seven States
(or three-fourths of the whole number .
now represented in the general govern
ment having ratified the proposed
amendment of the Constitution desig
nated as articia fourteen, Mr. BtTJCBBB
In the Senate and Mr. Binoham in tbe
House have introduced bills declaratory
of the ratification of said amendment.
This U, of course, to 1 a legislative dec
laration tbat the states which seceded or
relielled ceased to be members of the
QBtasa, either by their secession or by
Meanwhile, thetraeetion a to the pres
ent status of Taxas i licfore the Supreme
Court of the United stales, in the suit of
The State of Texas M. WtUte and Chile,
in which there is a motion to dissolve an
injunction heretofore granted against the
defendants, resuaining them from using
or disposing of certain bonds, of the State.
In support of the motion to dissolve
the injunction, the defendants Insist as
their main point that the I toort has not
jurisdiction of the caus, as it stands m
the name of the s ate of TeEKS, a Stat?
not in the Union. This point is urged as
fitai to t'.ie bill.
It is common now to hear It said that
the s-nithern States never did sscede,
or cease to be members of the Union,
be-ause they could not lawfully or
rightfully do so : and it might be argued,
also, thit after enterh.g into tbe Union,
they were not merely united to the other
Ptates, ae s-ates ieatrtied or united to
gether ; but that their people had become
au integral part of the one people of thb
Tniied K'ats, and the States retained
no such perfect antl eotire individuality,
er sovereignty, as that they could, as po
litical corporations and units, withdraw,
each for itself and as a unit, from the
Union. This, it will be seen, involves
the old quasiioo, so long discussed, as to
the nattireof the Constitution itself, and
whether it was a rompact between the
Suited or a law over tbem, and whether
it was the States that were united, or the
people of the States united and couscli
dated into one.
The meanings of words are m-difi?d by
the nature of the things to which they
are applied : and to us the word 'State'
expresses a jnlitics! organization, com
munity or body palitic, with the nature,
characteristics, relations, and limited
sovereignty and powers of the States of
onr Union. But tbe word has really the
same meaning as the Latin words
'EBJBMEtt,' ' imperiuiii,' and 1 respnolica,'
anil as the words ' nation ' aud ' com
mona'ealtb ' Tiie Kaglish jurisconsults
have always used the phrase ' Thi State '
to signify tbe Realm of England as the
French used ' CHUti,' and the Spanisrds
' Kttado,' to signify their respective
kingdoms. Louia XIV said 'I'Etaf,
c'e mot ; ' I am the State.
Before the present Constitution was
adopted, each of the. American States
was an independent nation, with all the
essential characterise of nationality.
Etch sty'ed itself, as several of them
always afterwards did, ' free, sovereigu
The MMb9 f a State, Nation or
Republic is its individuality, and its ac
tual separate existence and self-govern-rmeni
as an independent community and
power. If the adoption of the Constitu
tion was tho coalescence of ail tiie peo
ple of all the States into one people, the
body politic so formed was alone sover
eign, and the States ceased to be Be. If
the Constitution was a law and govern
ment imposed on tbem by the one peo
ple of all as a unit, they were no longer
sovereign ; because tuhordinate sover
eignties, sovereignties governed by a law
Unvoted oi fAem by a mperior power are
no more possible than free slaves. Tae
phrase "subordinate sovereigns" or
"sovereignties " is a solecism.
It was always ahsrd, therefore, for
the statesmen and jurists of the school
of Makbjiall, WbbstilK and Story, to
say that the States continued to be sov
eieign, except so far as tbey had traus
ferred their soveteigu powers to the j
United States. They Imagined that they j
proved this by allowing that they re-1
tained some of the attritmte of sover
eignty, such as the right of eminent do
main, aud the capacity to have treason
committed agaiust them ; but the reten
tion of some of the attributes of sover
eignty is not a retention of ths sover
cigtity Itself. A Kiman slave or minor
had oueof tho attributes of a free rotui
Hs could have the proprietorship of his
poaulium or Uttit. property. The posses
sion of pert of tbe attributes that n
vest an individual with a particular char
acter, is not the possession of that char
acter A parish or ceunty possesses some
ot the attributes of a State, as an ape
possesses some of those of a man.
Hut if tbe ' institution was a compact
between tbe Slates, and nothing else; If
the s'ates alone were parties to it ; if its
restrictive provisions were not prohibi
tion imposed by a higher power, but
their own tipHlatioU that they would
refrain from tbe exercise of cerluiu of
their powers; if it did not contain a su
preme rrtc imposing obligations on them
as well as on individuals, but their own
promites that they wou'id exerce cer
tain powers jointly, by the agency pro
vided for, and not separately , if the per
formance of their stipulations was not
enforced by a superior tri, dictating a
laic, but secured by the guarantee of their
own good faith and solemn pledget ; If
they granted away none of their powers,
denuded themselves of none of the attri
butes of their sovereignty, but agreed to
exercise certain of these powers by
means of a body politic and corporate
Into which they incorporated themselves,

In that ease, and had no superior, except
as tbe Nations of Europe have a superior

States," to prove that the one peo
ple of all the titstss, and not the people
of rich S'ate, acting as a Sate, made
the Constitution, is justly to be characterize-,
us a fraud. If it had Intended to
declare what is so claimed, it would have
been a falsehood; for the States did
make the C institution; and It was their
act, in fact as well as in law.
It does not at all follow that a State
had the right to withdraw at pleasure
from tbe Union. That was not a neces
sity consequence of its undiminished
sovereignty. A sovereign nation like
Rossi or France, has no right to annul
at pleasure a treaty of salience, to the
injury of its ally. A sovereign may
oblige himself not to exercise what wonfd
otherwise be a right, aud this not only
by express words, but by implication.
Every one, however sovereign, must so
use bis own as not to injure another.
Sovereignly does not involve inde
pendence of all law and obligation, hu
man and divine. The law of nations,
and the laws of Justice and equity and
good faith are above all soverelgt.s. A
nation mny be estopped, as well as an
individual, though there is no tribunal
to enforce the estoppel. There is no tri
bunal to enforce the law of nations.
Even a treaty between two nations may
create such interests that its abrogation
wantonly by either party would be un
just, and good cause of war. A Union
of S'ates creates so many thousand
mutual and separate interests, political,
pecuniary and social, and may make its
own continuance so necessary to the
welfare or evea sa'ety of part, if not all
of the states, that one shall have far EBB
right to sever It, than a nation to abro
gate a treaty: and that the right to sever

Wasiiinoto.v, February 1. The case
of John Yourg Brown, before the House
today, excites much iuteic-: Bck
read a pan erful speech advocating his
admission; nt nviug that Brown occu
pies! even a BBftaf position as regards
loyalty than did ex Attorney General
Spaed, Senator Guthrie, Gen. James
Jarrkson and others. The first two, it
should S remembered, were on the com
mittee which, on the 1Mb of April, 1SC1,
reported a resolution declaring Kentucky
ought and would defend her soil from the
invasion of any armed force, either fiom
the North or from the South. It is be
lieved the Hsuse will not admit Brown,
but of course his district will return him
by an overwhelming majority. It is
