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

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.
