We have no desire to place tlie name of
the Missouri .Senator any more prominently before the country than he is disposed to place it himself. His ambition is lofty enough, and eager of advancement enough, to dispense with all effort on our part at giving him any additional "boost" up the ladder. But the New York World has come to the rescue of the distinguished Senator, on a point vital to his further po litical advancement; ami, as a faithful chrouicler of the principal events of the times, we notice it as evidence of what is transpiring. The World has discovered a piece *of musty old parchment, known as the twelfth amendment of the constitution, adopted in 1804, which disqualifies the distinguished Senator of Missouri for higher office than Senator of the United States ; and, as Mr. Schura, by his prominence in tlie public eye, stands out " to symbolize all our fel low-citizens of alien nativity," the Worhi wants this tpialification removed. The aforesaid parchment, to which the HlirM takes exception, is this: "No per son, except a natural-born citizen, or a citi sen of the Uniled States at the time of th adoption of this constitution, shall bo olig ble to the office of President." • This clause, according to the. World, wa. all proper enough at the time of its adop tion. It grew out of the reactionary efl'or of those more bitterly opposed to nnn archism than are the people of Mr. Car Schurz's time. The original purpose was "to protect elective self-government agains absolutistic rule," and to effectually sh oot all such intriguers as the monarchia governments of Europe might send here to plot against the life of re publics. What was then eminently wis and judicious as a measure of protec tion against inonarchism is now manifest! unnecessary, i'or the reason that monarcl ism has become effete, and republican's more vigorous and active than ever. A*i were then too weak to allow the eligibilit of a foreign-born citizen, but now we ar strong enough not to fear it; and, luiie the desirableness of a change in the const tution to enable the Hon. Carl Schtuz gratify the highest ambition of which he capable. In view of the eminent servict he has rendered, and is still rendering, ti Democratic party of the country, the dut devolves upon them to remove this restri tion upon his eligibility, and give him chance with other Americans to stride hit that consummate place of honor ant power, the Presidency of the Cnitt We confess our inability to see the fore of the World's reasoning. There never ha. be-m a time in the history of the country when there was greater danger to our in stitutions from foreign intrigue than now. We may not, see it in the drift of fuiv,_u politics or the more subtle and crafty ten dency of European courts, but the religious atmosphere of the world is charged with it, anl ecclasiastical domination iillen fore shadows as much intrigue at court as the craftiest of State diplomacy, lv fad, the wiliest diplomats of the world, as well as the most dangerous to liberty, have been those who have snatched their scepters of influence from the church rather than the State. The New York World will hardly say that our danger in SUs direction, or from this source of influence, is not as great now as it ever was. What it says nn this head, therefore, should be received as of little weight in determining the question it It is hardly complimentary to the genius and statesmanship of Americans to ia this change in the constitution of the liu ted States in connection with the name of any foreign-born citizen. If Carl Schurz so transcendantly exceeds all other states men in the country as to make this change in the constitution nccecossary, then let it bo made. But let the American people at largo demand the change, and be the judges of the transren dant abilitie- of the gentleman in question, without any manufacturing of opinion in the New York World, pr. by any mutual admiration society in or about St. Louis. No one man in tho country should have so "got the start of the majestic WotW'M\ to make this superlatively absurd demand necessary. Even the "mighty Ciosai" ui gtistly stalking along the Lupercal, could not extort a greater tribute from bin friend Anthony, than is paid the .Missouri Senator by this ineffable flunkeyi-ui of the World.
