MEMPHIS APPEAL -haied by their order in judgment entry, strikes it down. Four of the i ourt one way, four the other way, and the ninth man, possibly the weak est of all, sits umpire over the exer cise of the nation's sovereignty by its Congress, and as -his opinion is pro or r on, arrests or permits to proceed." The Senator's remedv is to take from the Supreme Court the power to make decisions, and vest it in Onigres. Let us see how it wuM work in tVmgress. Congress, as every one knows, is composed of all sorts of men, of every prolession; lawyers, doctors, merchants, farmers, horse traders, pedlers, shoemakers, soap makers, tailors, tanners, and some of MLiMAa it Tu,.1-j at all The Supreme Court when deciding , T . -r trood at none." Let us suppose a t i-ca.

A. TYLER, -FRIDAY MORNING, EDITOR. JAN. 14, 1870. SLWAIOR DRAKE BILL ASM SPEECH. of Congress, used this irgumeut : " It is declared that ' no tax or duty hall be levied on articles exported from any State." Suppose a duty on export of cotton, ot tobacco, or of tlour, and a uu instituted to recover it, ought judg ment to be rendered in such a case, ought the judge! to close their ?yes on -he Con tud only see tb law V'f ' Tbe Constitution declares ' that no bill of attainder or M past ulo law shall be panned.' If, however, such a bill should be passed, and a person be prosecuted un der it, must tbe Court condemn to death tli" victims whom the Constitution en deavors to preserve?" The Senator, commenting on this ar gument by the Court, Kays: " Cases are supposed of Congress pass ing acta in direct and self-evident repug iiaiicv to the Constitution, and the ques tion : asked whether the courts would be bound to enforce such acts?" Again: "The argument drawn by the Court ni the argument by ths cases supposed, even if considered to possess force, goes to prove nothing but the right of the Court tn just that class of cases, to hold an act of Congress unconstitutional." Here is a distinct and unequivocal acknowledgment by the Senator, that '(' just tfuU class of cases," to-wit : the cases mentioned by the Court, a tax on cotton or flour exported, or an -r post facto law, the courts have the power to declare acts of Congress un constitutional. Elsewhere we have shown his acknowledgment that the Court had; indeed, that it was the only tribunal which has the power to decide upon conflicting laws. With these two admissions the Sen ator has left UaMBaf nothing to stand ujton. Itissaidtobe a maxim with reaj-ouers that from nothing nothing rf mains. The Senator is inconsistent with himself. In another part of his speech tie holds this language: " No power can be drawn to one department of the Government, from a supposed of p'jiiic. .fit-evident violation of the Constitution by another depart ment, for such a violation is not to be ..!:'- -i." Now it so happens that the senator makes out, in his own person, the very case which he says " is not to be supposed.'1'' In his speech he -ays there is " a present and urgent li.-ed" for Congress to pass his bill, for the reason, that there are a number of cases now tending before the Supreme Court, which call in question the con stitutionality of acts of Congress. With others named by the Senator, the cotton tax case. It so happens t hat case calls in ques- ttou the constitutional power of Con gress tit tax cotton in traasitu to export. Tf they cannot tax an article of export, can they tax it on its way to be exported f This Ls precisely one of the " da-is of ca.es" which the Su preme Court said could not be taxed, which the Senator admitted to be a "palpable and sclf-evUient violation of the Constitution." And yet, not- ithstanding this admission, he is urging uon Congress to arrest and smother the investigation of an act of Congress which perpetrates a palpable violation upon the constitutional rights of citizens in a large section of the country. The Senator supplies the proof not only that it is to le "supposed," but that he is willing and asixiou-a a Senator, to prevent inquiry, whether the citizens have lieen wronged or not. In another rt of his speech, fear ing he had made an admission fatal to his whole argument, h? takes it back by saying: " I mean not to be under stood as admitting that even in the ntlli'MMI cases put by the Court, the judicial power Is charged by the Con stitution with the protection of flic eoplc against the unconstitutional acts of. their own representatives. Take those case, take any case of di rect and palpable legislative violation tit the Constitution, and what name would you give it? It could be called by no other name thin Revolution.' For its design would be, as its proba ble effect, to overthrow the Constitu tion in some of its parts ; and any such legislation is, in its very essence, an act of Revolution ! We now see what the Senator's doc trines tend to, verifying the old adage "give him rope and hi will hang him self." They need no comment It is trumiw't-tongued against rebels; and yet this preacher against rebels is pro mulgating doctrines which teach the people, rathe.- than submit to the quiet constitutional way of deciding questions by the courts, to take the course which leads to revolution with revolution to war. And this is the bloody alternative commended by the Senator. The argument over throws itself, and possibly may the Senator. The people f-.re not yet pre pared for such measures, and woe to any simpleton who may follow lata. There is one more chance left for the Senator. "With great heart he heaves . . . . ,, , ll: . . . A.t away tnis storm oy cauiug uuenuon to another decision of the court in the case United States vs. Coombs, in which the court decidijd, "If upon a just interpretation of the terms of an act, Congress have eieeeded their constitutional authority, it would be come our duty to say so." "Oneecon ecde," says theSenator, "that (fcecon stitutioualityofan act of Congrc-- is to be determined by the ratiocinatin ma l -1 . ., .1 i- power ol juugesoi tue xui us, nun juu have a standard which , without disre spect, might be said to be somewhat uncertain." it has passed the .Senate by one vote, and that the House consists of two hundred and forty-one members. The question is up for final decision. One hundred and twenty for, one hundred end twenty against, and the fate of the bill is made to depend upon the vote of one man, and that man is a soapboiler, who knows all about 'jrcase, but never looked into a law book, read a decision, or the Constitu tion; who, in fact, is very ignorant, W ignorant that if all he knew was written and printed, it would not make one page of a small primer; whereas, if all he did not know could j be printed, it would make the largest iook ever seen by mortal eyes. And yet that man's vote, the weakest man in Congress, " sits umpire " in deter mining one of the gravest and greatest constitutional questions ever intro duced before any tribunal. To this complexion must come at last the Senator's programme? We wish in stating this ease not to be understood as reflecting on men of any trade or profession. Our object is to point out the absurdity of the Senator's doctrines. Not content with the preposterous claim for Congress to expound laws, the Senator claims that Congress wields the sovereignty of the nation. To strengthen this position, he makes the following quotations from Bi.At kstoxe: "Sovereignty and legislature are convertible terms." Again : " An act of Parliament is the exercise of the highest authority that this king dom acknowledges upon earth." " This description," the Senator says, " applies to an act of Congress in relation to any subject ovor which the Constitu tion gives it legislative power. In that field its acts are as -,inipoien; as those of Parliament over any subject." This sounds like a very pomiious pretension and grating to American ears. The restraining words, "orer which Hit: Constitution girts it legixla tire power," is a monstrous " getting down stairs,'" if not into the cellar; the play of " Othello " without l)e demona; a big door without a house behind it. Congressmen are but the agents of the people. As the people cannot in propria personr meet to transact their business, they depute their agents, with strict letters of instruction. " Thus tar shalt thou go, and no far ther." Every legislative body over which the Constitution gives it " leg islative power " may claim to be like wise as omnipotent as the British Parliament. Indeed, every consta ble, for the purpose of serving writs and collecting money, to the extent of his jwwer is also omnipotent. Omnipotence is not in our vocabu lary, nor in our Government like that of Great Britain. The Government o( Great Britain is a hereditary mon archy. In the language of Lord Coke, the King is principal m et jinis, the be ginning and end. Sir William Blackstoxe, from whose writings the Senator draws his maxims, as cribes to the King ubiquity and im mortality; that law, justice, offices, honor, all flow from him; that the people, Parliament, Church, army, navy, highways, laws, peace, arc, by virtue of his prerogative, his. The Parliament in part of its com position is hereditary. The Constitu tion of Great Britain is composed of unwritten laws and maxims. Their Magna Charta, Bill of Rights, etc., are bulwarks to protect the people against the prerogative of the Crown. They claim they can de as they pktase, and are ouinipoti nt. The people are di vided into castes earls, duke, lords, counts, barons, common people and beggars. The Government of the United States is modeled after no other. It is xui generis. The framers of the Constitution and thoe who adopted it, were wise, practical, learned men, deeply versed in the his tory of all governments. When they undertook the task of lonum!? a gov ernment, they may bo said to have stood on an apex, from which they could look down upon the history of nations. With the tierce and turbu lent democracies of ancient Republics, with the Republic of Venice, with the Amphyctionic Council, with the Acha-an League, the Germanic, the Swiss Confederation, the United Neth erlands; with the Monarchies of all couturier, wnn tne ( xjKTimcnts in the colonies, with the Confederation they were as familiar as with their household gods. These, with their virtues, triumphs and advancements, in letters, arts, arms and conquests ; with their it- Lfections and imperfections, passed in review before them for their instruc tion and guidance. Like bees, they gathered honey freni every flower, and appropriated that which was good. The Constitution of the United States was the result of their labors. The easiest systen of government ever adopted by mortal man, if ad mftrMered,with virtue, patriotism and prudence, and with the intent of those who framed it. The people, not Congress, possess the absolute sovereignty. The legis lative, executive and judical depart ments have their respective spheres, alike represent the sovereignty of the leople one not more than another and all their powers are limited. In framing the organic law, thesovereigu tsl they pleased, and withheld to them selves such as they pleased. In creating a legislative department, they divided it into two branches, House of Representatives and Senate. The House of Representatives were to be the immediate representatives of the people. They were elected only for two years. Knowing the insta bility of republics, as Mr. Hamilton expressed it, " the first to be seen, and the List to be lamented by the philo sophical engineer" in the ereetionof the Senate they endeavored to give that branch more stability, made them more immediately the representatives of States elected for six years that they might restrain ttie excesses of the House of Representatives, and, if need be, by their wisdom, moderation and patriotism, protect the people against themselves. If there are many like Senator Drake, it is to be feared this conservative check will be lost. In the erection of the executive power, as that power was to represent the whole people, and to execute the laws, they gave him almost the power of a king, without his perogatlves but as that power might be abused they made him elective for a short period. To the Legislature was assigned the duty of framing laws upon just such subjects as were specifically enume rated; but for greater precaution, be fore they could become laws, they were required to be laid before the executive, for his approval or disap proval. As laws bad to be construed, and as legislative bodies had not the wisdom, and could not be trusted to sit in judgment on their own acts, they created another department, called the Judicial Department. As this department had no patronage, no power, no enmities to punish, no am bition to gratify, they were removed from the people, that they might not bo swayed by their tumults, passions, ambitions or prejudices that they might decile uprightly and justly, protect the Constitution, the States and the people the weak against the machinations, usurpations and en croachments of the powerful. They were made entirely independent of the other departments, held their offices for life, that, like the sun, they might move in their lofty sphere, high ahove the angry elements beneath, and decide laws without tear, favor or affection. To them the people look, as a safe guard against lawlessness, oppression and encroachments of their constitu tional rights. This security for life, liberty and property, is the fairest flower that blooms in the garden of liberty; and woe to those like Senator Drake, who, imagining themselves clothed with the omnipotence of the British Parliament, shall attempt to abridge their powers or destroy them. It is said to be one of the misfortunes of greatness to be erratic. This adage has lost nothing of truth in its appli cation to Senator Drake. The Se n ator, in his unchastened ambition, whilst claiming for Congress, in the language of Blac ks toxe, the omnipo tent power of the British Parliament, forgot that it was this very claim of omnipotent power to tax the colonies in all cases whatsoever, which caused the colonies as one man to spring to their feet, and respond in tones of thunder from Lexington and Bunker Hill. That out of this conflict, a new nation was ushered into existence, full-armed, who vindicated their claims to sovereignty and nationality, by repudiating the omnipotent power of the British Parliament. Whilst this bloody conflict was waging on this siue of the Atlantic, great and learned orators on the other side, unterrificd by the frowns of power, were pleading our cause with zeal, eloquence and patriotism un surpassed. "Resistance to your acts was neces sary as it was jtist ; and your vain declaration of the omnipotence of Par liament, and your imperious doctrine of the necessity of submission, will be found equally impotent to convince or to enslave your fellow subjects in America," was the heroic language of Lord Chatham in the House of Lords. And of whom Edmim Bl'rke said: "A name that keeps the name of this country respectable in every other on the globe. BOOTS AND SHOES. GROCERS AND COTTON FACTORS ABOUT BOOTS.
