Tho lores and joys of earth are brief!
The fairest flowers the first decay ;
h» Pleasure's footsteps follow Grief;
Too soon we mourn the fallen leaf
And life's departed May.
We yearn, perplexed and stung with pain,
Our long-lost Adlenn to regain ;
Oh ! is it for away ?
Hark 1 from the caverns of the heart,
Faipt echoes, phantoun-voices, start ;
11 Far, far away !"
And, sounding from beyond the sky,
Melodious solemn ntrains reply :
44 Far, far away !" •
The sonl Is pained with vain regret :
We pine for what no years restore;
And sorrows we would foin forget,
With clasped hands and eyelids wet,
Haunt us evermore.
Grows there no balm in grove or field,
No plant that may nepenthe yield ?
Ah 1 is there no reprieve ?
List ! from the grove low murmurs flow,
As though and sprites bewailed their woe :
"No, no reprieve !"
And from the field, with mournful sigh,
The withering flowers und grass reply :
"No, no reprieve I"
A wildering maze is life, in sooth ;
And flickering hopes, as false us bright,
Illusive, lure our trusting youth.
And with their glamour hide the truth
Until our hairs are white.
0, Wfurld ! Ü, Time.! can ye not give
Somewhat to make it sweet to live?
Must joys, loves, all dc|mrt ?
The orld responds with scornful laugh,
Pointing to many an epitaph :
"All, all ^depart r
And. os he swee;«, remorseless by.
The knell-like tones of Time reply :
"All, all dei»art !"

Al ASHINGTON, January 27, 1868. eat
To Henry Leibenan and others, Com- son,
mittee, tCc .—Gentlemen : Your letter of
iuvitation is duly rooeived. It costa me a
struggle to decline to accept. My whole
soul is with yon, and with all my country- the
men everywhere who are organizing to
rescue constitutional liberty from overthrow
by that radicalism which controls the dom
inant majority in Congress. Two measures
are now pending, (they have already pas- are
sed theHouse,) which, if oonsumated, tend
to revolutionize the government. The of
first, in direct violation of the constitution,
takes away from the President the com
mand of the army aud the execution of the
laws in ten States of the Union. It places so
the command of the army and the cxeeu
tionof the laws in the hands of the Geu
eral, independent of the President, .who
ceases thereby to be commander-in-chief,
Ina word, it creates an absolute dicta- it
The other measure aims to subordinate
the judiciary department to Congress also,
The number of Judges of the Supreme
Court is eight, and the Tull proposes that
no judgment shall he pronounced against
the validity of a law of Congress exoept to
by two-thirds of the whole number of Or
judges. Two-thirds of eight is more than
five. To be precise, two-thirds of eight
is five and one-third. As tlie opinion of a
judge cannot he divided, and muBt be
wholly for or wholly against the validity of
a law, the practical effect of requiring two- a
thirds of the judges to concur is the same
as if three-fourths were required. Six
judges must concur in opinion to weigh
down the opinions of tw o.
This is placing false weights in the bal
ance. This is placing in the balance, in
favor of any usurpation Congress may at
tempt against the executive or judiciary
department, the weight of three opinions
in advance, fixed—immovably fixed—by
law. It leaves the point to bo decided by
a majority of five opinions only. If three
of the five shull decide in favor of the va
lidity of the luw, Congress is tobe sus
* tained in any usurpation it may attempt,
Wc all know, as power always tends to
enlarge itself, that constitutions are made
on purpose to defend minorities from béing
trampled upon by majorities. Majorities
are powerful, aud able to protect them
The Supreme Court was established as
the tribunal of last resort ; to uphold the
constitutiou os the supreme law over Con
gress, as well as over all else ; to hold a
just and even balance in our system ; and
to determine the boundary line betweon
the powers delegated by the people to the
federal government, and those which
reserved to the States. In the strong lan
guage of him who has ever been revered
us the father of the constitution :
" The plain fact of the ease is that the
constitution of the Urtited States was
ated by the people composing the respec
tive States, who alone had the right ; that
they organized the government into legis
lative, executive end judicial departments,
delegating thereto, certain portions of power
to be exercised over the whole, and reser
ving the other portions to themselves, re
spectively. As these distinct portions of
power were, to be exercised by the general
government and by the State governments,
by each within certain spheres, and as, of
course, controversies concerning the bound
arias of their power would happen, it was
provided that thfcy should he decided by
the Supreme Court of the United States,
to constituted as to be as impartial as it
•ould be made by the modo of appoint
ment and responsibility of the judges."—
James Madison's Writings, vol. 1, J) 18.
But how can the Supreme Court hold a
just and equal balance between the gen
eral government aud State governments if
three of its judges can weigh down five ?
If, in case of encroachment by Congress
upon the rights preserved to the States,
upon the liberties of the people, it si
require six judges to overcome two?
Just Heaven ! has it come to this ? that,
in the madness and blind fanaticism which
rule the*hour, it requires six judges in

A grand mass meeting was held at
Cooper Institute, New York, on Thursday
night, tinder tho auspices of the Coustitu
tional Union organization, to protest
against the acts oft,he radicals iu Con
gress. The chair was taken by Hugh
Maxwell, and several eloquent addresses
were delivered. The following stirring
letter was read to the meeting from Sen
ator Doolittle, Republican, of Wisconsin:
1 1
favor of that eofistitutiotflfr lUferty for
which our fathers and British ancestors
have been at]
years to weigh
judges in favor of absolute military des
potism, of abolishing all civil lew «eld civil
government, even, in ten States of the
Union, and among eight million« af people?
The case of MoArdle is that of a civilian
arraigned for trial by military commission.
It is now beforp the Supryne' Court o^ an
al from the United States Cirduit Coflmwr
ississippi, on habeas corpus. Congress
eposes to enact that this man shall
iprived of his liberty, and sentenuod by
military court, to death it may be, although
five of the eight judges ot tbtt&nprcfcie
Court shall decide that such an outrage upon
constitutional liberty, In time of peace, is
forbidden by the express language of the
constitution. He shall not be'Oétat liberty
if three of the judges of that court
shall be of the opinion that tlie constitution
of the United States is suspended or ovar,
thrown in the State where he resides.
This McArdle cose is not all. There
are several now in prison under the sen
tence of death by these radical caurts-Aiat
tial, awaiting a death warrant from the
President,- '• » 1V/.A.VÏ
By the strongest appeals to the senate
when the ntfStary despotism bill pttsstfi iu
1867, the minority prevailed upon some of
the majority td veto with them, and & pro
vision was inserted that no sentence of
death should be executed whhont the Ap
proval of the President. But for that this
terrible measure would have been already
stained with blood. The President, Jjiougjt
urged by the military conMnSbders to heute
the order for «xccntkm, has refrained from
doing so.
In the defense of the greatmass of nw

In our system two forces are ovur strng

that system. 'The left to

also. But the continued operation of both
forces, the one balancing the other, retains
all in their proper orbits. ,",, lu 1 , . :
How long could that system lagt if the
centripetal force should be doubled ; ï>he
other force remaining the same could "no

doubled, it oonld no longer bo counter

in our system, is to be so chalnWl and

The dissemination of sound political doctrines
should commend the earnest utkntion of every
true friend of the Union and the Constitution.
The events of the past political year are lull of
significance. The uprising of thé People in op
position to tho destructive policy of Radicalism,
clearly shows that the uissses are determined to
restore again to pow er the great Democratic partv,
hose history is filled with tho
glory and prosperity of our common country.
No more effectual method for preuenting*tlie Truth
can be devised, than iu circulating Democratic
journals. It is the intention of the Proprietors of
The Age to make it, in every way, worthy of tlvq
support and confidence that have heretofore been
extended to it. Improvements are contemplated
in every department, and no f - '
will be spared to keep it in t
American journalism.
The Daily Age contains the latest intelligence
from all parts of the world, with articles
eminent, Polities, Trade, Finance, and all the
current questions of the day ; Local Intelligence^

Public Gatherings, Foreign und Domestic Corres
pondence, Legal Reports, Book Notices, Theatrical
Criticisms, Reviews of Literature, Art and Music,
Agricultural Mutters, and discussions oi'whatever
subjects are of general interest and importance*.
Besides Special Telegrams, it has all the dispatches
of the Associated Press from every part of tlie
United States, and ulso the Associated Press dis
patches Tçeivcd by the Atlantic Cable; jrnd the
news from all parts of Europe brought by the
steamers, is instantly telegraphed from whatever
point the steamers first touch.
The Weekly Awe will be a complete compen
dium of the news of the week, and besides the
leading editorials from the Daily, will contuin a
large amount of interesting mailer prepared ex
pressly for the weekly issue. Jt will be in ail
