I that which ii may exercise over the stairs
with views of general policy. That cla i«*
invests Congress with a complete dnmi
ttion over the District, in addition to, or
involving and blended with the other enu
merated nr general powers of Congress,
which it was intended to assist and lortify.
As this dominion Hows from the same
source with every other power possessed
by the government of the union, as it is
executed hy the same Congress, as it was
frested for the common good and for
Universal purposes—it is impossible that
it should not tie of equal obligation
lirougout the union in its effets, and con
lequences, with any power whatever,
known to-llic constitution.
The government of the United States
is a government of enumerated powers,all
of which are upon the same level. The
ipower to raise and support armies (with
all its dependant powers ) may be of
higher dignity than the power to legislate
'over the scat of the general government,
but it js not ot greater force or more bind
ing upon the states or the people.
The power to raise and support ar
mies inuy and almost always will operate
|inore expansively, hut legislation over
laud lor the District of Columbia may in
the progress of its consequences, reach
ins far as legislation for military objects,
and when it does so, will he of equivalent
efficacy. If Congress hatl deeisrtl it ex
pedient, it might have established this
lottery directly, instead of authorizing it
by a substitute, and might have after
wards applied the avails (so as to hind the
states) to this improvement of the district.
Had it doiic so, who can doubt that the
tickets might have becu sold in each ol
the United States, and yet where is the
difference in the substance of the thing,
and in common sense between the two
cases ? Where can be the difference whe
ther Congress exercise their power directly
theinsolves, or authorize others to exer
cise it (or them i It is still in either case
their power and authority which is acting.
It will be admitted hy every body tlint it
is in the nature ot a lottery tV*at *tlie tick
ets must be sold, and that they must he
(its they always arc) transferable from
fraud to baud by sale, aud it results from !
1 lie interest every citizen of the United
States has in that which is well establish- |
evl or created for general purposes, under I
the anihnritv ot Cnnvress and within tint I
1 scope ot the constitution timt he is on- I
tilled to avail himself of what is so estab
lished or created ; but surely a slate law
which forbids a citizen to sell or buy a
ticket in a lottery well established under
tiie authority of the Union, within the
scopeoftlic constitution, and for national
purposes, trespasses upon the right of I lie
citizen as far as it goes, interferes with
the general purposes for which the lolteiy
ia established, and changes the qualities
of the ticket by impairing that saleable
and transferable tnculiy to which it owes
its value, and without w hich the lottery
itself may be wholly defeated, ami must
be greatly injured and delayed. It would
indeed be a strange a-tomaly, if wlial
Congress had created, or authorized to
be created in a valid manner, ami- which
entirely derives its capacity ol answering
the general purposes lor which it was so
created from its faculty of being sold ami
transferred, could be considered ami
treated by a state as the subject of a cri
Yniufti traffic, or, in other words, it a citi
zen could be punished by a state for sell*
ing or buying that which Congress had,
lor the purpose ol being bought and sold,
sent, or caused to be sent into the market
ol the Union, conformably to amt under
the sanction of the constitution, and lor
tt national object.
11 a lottery ticket li»9 a lawful origin
under (lie constitution of the Union, it h
a lawful lottery ticket wherever the power
of the Union is acknowledged. The pow
croft he Union constitutionally executed,
knows no locality within the bounds ot
the Union, and can encounter no geo
graphical impediments. Its march is
through the union, or it i9 nothing but a
name. The slates have no e\istence rela
tively 1o the effect of the powers delegat
ed fo’Congress, save only where llreir
assent or instrumentality is required or
permitted by the constitution itself. In
every other case the effect olconstitution
a I congressional legislation iscommenstw
ft wiiii uuiitu iuhi simt*
D iation in opposition to it is but a shadow.
f Nor is there any danger to Ire apprehend
ed from allowing to congressional legists
1 fion with regard 10 the district of Colum
bia, its fullest effects. Congress is res
ponsible to the states and to the people
for that legislation, it is in truth the
legislation of the states and the people
over a district placed under fheir control
for their own benefit, not for that of the
district except as the prosperity of flic
district is involved in and is necessary to
lh« general advantage. The slates or the
yF people can only resist the natural effect of
suCli legislation by resisting the exercise
of their own sovereignty created upon
lrigh inducements of constitutional policy.
A case of this sort bears no resemb
lance to that of one state repelling within
>'»« limits by penal sanction the effect of
the laws of any other state upon consid
erations of local expedience, or otherwise.
What on such occasions, one state may
properly and regularly do with regard to
the; laws of another state, it is not fit to
discuss in this place ; but whatever it
way itoon such occasions there is no a
flaiogy between those and the present
Ia state that repels the effects of the laws
of another state within its territory is
uo party to those laws.It has no
direct interest in them. It did not as
aist in making them immediately or
derivatively or constructively. It can
j . not assist in repealing or modifying them.
But here the law is its own law, as* being
a member of the Union although irrevoc
able by it, without tne concurrence of
others. The effect is for its own advan
tage hi the eye of the constitution. It can
contribute to revoke the law by its repre
sentatives in Congress, and it is bound
by the constitutions! grant ol power, in
virtue of which it has been enacted, since
it participated in that grant, as in every
other grant of power to the government
of the Union.
■* Upon the whole, we are ol opinion, that
the legislature of no individual state in
the Union can constitutionally prohibit
the sale of tickota in the lotteries estab
lished in the City of Washington under
the authority of Congress.

foil THE ENQUIRER
Schools—Literary Fund, .see.
Messrs. Editors— It any 'iihjrcl claims one ol
your columns, it is tile sit nation of the literary
institutions of our native state. Tile primary
and gratuitous schools, the academies, the
colleges, the university, tlie state hind, the
heart and artery ot the whole literary system
have sufficient novelty, magnitude, difficulty
and importance to command the investigation
of some of (he able and practical riieu in Vir
ginia.
The plans when first announced, aroused
the public mind from a long stupor.— Hut its
novelty and grandeur so far bewildered the
understandin;, that no distinct and steady view
has even y.:t been taken either of what we hare
—what we mast need—what is really practicable
—or of the greatest utility in regard to our li
terary institutions.
When the American constitution was nro
posed, had not able pens and practical men
conducted the public opinion, revolution after
revolution must have occurred, before experi
ence could have removed delusion, and con
firmed truth. Our literal y sitiiulion now
resembles are political one then .- and calls
for similar exertions from the enlightened and
patriotic.The following are some of the
points which demand investigation.
The education uf the poor is not only impor
tant. hut immensely difficult and expensive
The whole proceeds of tliu liieiary fund will
he inadequate to its accomplishment on the
present plan. When the legislature of Nvw
York failed in rendering a similar measure
snccesstnl, they stopped—appointed agents to
examine the obstacles, whether real or found
ed in puh'ic opinion—to visit similar iustitn
lions in other states, and to devise a plan that
might ensure success.
The subject rneiitR the attention of some
experienced statesman, Ac trite philanthropist.
Idle declamation, or obstinate adherence to
preconceived opinions on this point, will soon
buget suspicion of serving popularity, rather
than the poor.—Great expectations have been
excited that numerous academies mill he main
tained at the public expanse.—Why not pro
mise to maintain family schools at public ex
pense ?
The legislature ought to assume it as a max
im that no institution capable of supporting
itself, ought to divert public money from otli.
cr objects of public utility, which cannot he
maintained without permanent funds or legis
lative aid.
fait the legislature pass a general act by
which any given number (12) by raising a
certain sum (£ 2,000) for the erection of a large
academy, in which the elements of a liberal
education shall he taught, may become legally
Incorporated. Then, should they grant a
smsll annuity, beginning at 9 100, and increas
ing the stun at discretion, it might effect much,
without impeding othei objects. The Stale, ot
New Y'ork has adopted a plan like this, with
great success,and now contains more than fifty
academies —many of which are tar superior to
our common frontier colleges.
Hut on no point is the public opinion so con*
fused and various, ason the nature of callages.
Wliat constitutes a college I In wliat is it
superior to an academy t Wliat extent of lite
rature and science does its course of study
embrace ? W hat number of professors are ne
cessary t At wliat expense may edifices for
one hundred students, five or six officers, a li
brary. a philosophical and chemical apparatus
be erected ?
Most ot the states find it difficult to furnish
funds or students sufficient for one good col
lege.—Virginia would have seven, a central
college and an university, all built, if not
supported at the public expense. Hut the
previous question, which every student,every
college, the legislature itself, must decide, he
fore any plan can he devised or executed with
consistency, is this. What extent of literature
and science has experience found best adapted
to qualify a young man for any learned pro
fession, or to render him aw accomplished ci
tizen ? No answer to this important question
can be found in all the reports and discussi
ons that h ive been laid before the legislature,
or the public.

l°r that, something more than money, may be
necessary
Tho tiiuds of the state, anil the number of
those who desire n liberal education in Virgi
nia, lor twenty years, will not support more
than four colleges. Let one he west of the I
mountain, one oil the east of the state, one I
south of .lames river, anil the other at (.'liar,
lotlcsville, connected with which, lint holding
the same eminence above the college that the
college does over an academy, should be the
University.
The most extravagant ideas arc entertained
ront-erning the design and magnitude of the
University.
Vast numbers expect to send their hoys to
tear-. Latin and Greek grammar, as though Mr.
Jefferson had hern laboring fur half a century
to erect a mammoth grammar school. The
system of subordinate iiiolitHtions was design
ed by its illustrious founder to elevate the uni
versity above the reach of such degradation!
Many of the public agents who solicited sub
scriptions to the Central College, made an
impression on the public, that no college did
really exist or was essential, provided the one
at Chat lollesville should be extcnsivulv pat
ronized. Was Ibis placing“a college within
sixty miles of racli mail’* door” i
The enemies ol the university have not con
tradicted this erroneous impression, that the
danger and folly of assembling in one institu
tion twelve or (itteen hundred youths might
he the more manifest, ‘flic friends have not,
that,for the pr sent.no bill for aiding or found
ing colleges or academies might gain popular- j
ity ; ami thai tin zeal for the gratuitous and ‘
pi unary schools might not blast all hope of I
providing for tip- liberal education ol the l icit |
and the mi.id class ol our citizen*.
•Since the univeisity has been merged in tlie
central college, all distinct ideas ol the prov
ince of either have been lost. The visitors of
the university will consult justice and interest
in giving to the pub-ic an explicit statement
ol the design of their institution and arrange
ment ol its course of instruction.
This institution has already done much good
by giving an impulse to jitilsfic opinion : Mn- j
nv ofonr youths are now pursuing a liberal I
education through this excitement.who other
wise would have been contented with an aca
demic one.
An university is not essential fora liberal
education : Tliisis the sole object ol a college.

Charleston, August 30.— We ham

a letter, dated “ llAVKE .IlJLY 8.
“ My last held out the expectation that the
differences between the. United States and
France, respecting the. Tonnage Dali/, would
he amicably arranged. I formed that opin'
ion without refecting that the suddenness of
the measure on the part of the American gov
einment, would he considered in the light of a
provocation and that it comported with the
dignity and national honor of ours, to adopt
a r taliatnry course.
“ The Council of Slate had resolved to im
pose a countervailing duty of IUI) f rancs per
ton on American vessels, to commence from
the 10/A inst. and it only waited the Royal
signature, and we momently expected its pro
mulgation.

that the tonnage duty which might he receiv

adopt toward* the [J. S the same commercial
treaty they have with England, by which
they arc not permitted to import i espectirrly,

less duty than those from India, and also

this government for an arrangement with
the United States—they are collecting from
the different Chambers of Commerce ample
documents on the. trade, between the two conn

seiited a petition in the Bittioli Hoii«p of Com

p*l in the Hret tor Contempt of the Court ol

man HI years old, who had been routined lot
routPiiipt 31 years. Another person was 01
years old, and had been confined nineteen
years; another was00 a >d bad been confineii
K years. Thrie was another person who woult
have signed tlie petition, but he was in a tly
ing eondilicn, partly it was supposed, on ae
cottMt of his confinement. He presented lltii
petition the more willingly, to show tin
ground of necessity for extending the provis
ions ol the Insolvent Debtors’ Act to person!
confined under contempt. 'ITin petition wai
btoituht up and read : the petitioners prayed
for relief, by being put on the seme Footing
as other debtors. Mr. Bonnet thought the
best mode of preventing this unjust suffering
would b* that the noble Lord at the head ol
