The finpreme Court of the United Slates
In the recent case of Siebolt and others de
cided at the October term, 1879, on a ques
tion raised in the caao as to the constitu
tionality of the revised statutes above
ouoted, uses the following language:
These portions of the revised statutes are
taken from the act commonly known as
the enforcement act, approved Mar 31,
1870, and entitled "an act to enforce the
right of citizens of the United Mates to vote
in several States in the Union, and for
other purposes," and from a supplement
that act, approved February 28.h, 1871,
relative to the election of members of the
House of Kepresentatives, and were an
assertion on the part of Congress of
power to pass laws for regulating and
superintending said electiois, and for
securing purity thereof and rights for
citixens to vote -thereat peaceably
and without molestation, it nasi
be conceded to be a most important powei
and of a fundamental character. In the
light of recent history, and of violence
0 fraud, corrupti n and irregularity which
have frequently prevailed at such elec
tions, it may easily be conceived that exer
tion of power if it exista may be necessary
to the stability of our form of government
The great difficulty in coming to a just
conclusion atisea from the mistaken no
tions in regard to the relations which sub
t wist between Stare and National govern
. tneutH. It seems to be ofLen overlooked
that National constitution has been adopt
. ed in thia country establishing real gov
1 ernment therein and which moreover
I is, or should be, as dear to every Ameri
i can citizen as his Htate Government is.
W benever true conception of the nature of
this government is once conceded not,
1 real difficulty will arise in a just interpre
i tation o! its powers, but if we allow our*
selves to regard it as a hostile organization
opposed to proper sovereignty aud diguity
of State government*, we shall continue
to be vexed with difficulties as to jurindic
tion and authority. No greater jealousy
is required to be exercised towards the
government in reference to the preserva
tion of our liberties than is proper to be
exercised towards iSta'te governments. Its
powers areliinited in number and defloed,
and its action within the scope of those
powers, is restrained by a sufficiently
rigid bill of righta for the protection of its
citizens from oppression. The true inter
esis of the people of this country re
quires that both National and Htate gov
ernments should be allowed, without jeal
ous interference on either side, to
exercise all the powers which respect
ively belong to them according to a fair
and practical construction of the Constitu
tion. State righta and the right of the
United States should be equally respected;
both are essential to the preservation ot
our liberties and perpetuity of our insti
tutions, but in endeavoring to vindicate
one we should not allow our zeal to nullify
or impair the other.

miukt Creek, June 14. 1880.
Since the flrst.of the montlr we have
been watching and hoping for rain. The
drouth bad become severe, and all crops
were suffering. The continued showery
weather we have been having in connec
tion with warm weather induces a rank
growth of vegetation.
The season this year la three weeks
ahead of last. Harvest is upon us, and
corn has not vet received its third plowing.
It seems to be a race between the weeds
and tbe corn. Both are growing rauidly.
The older farmers tell us that weed land
is best for corn aa it necessitates frequent
culture. If we had no weeds in our hoed
crops few farmers would give them aa
much cultivation a* is needed Thus we
learn that even weeds are a "blessing in
dbguife," and the i ld prediction respect
ing the earth "that.horns and thistles it
shall produce for man's lake" is fully veri
Wheat which has been showing heads
since the middle ol May is now fully ripe,
I or will be in a few days. Several Held* in
neighborhood will be cut and in shock by
the end ot the week.
Tne oats and barley crops will be an av
erage one. They have both become an
important crop with ns, as the yield is
larger than corn, and requires lesa labor
to produce them. The prospects were
nevor better than at present for a large
crop of every kind of fruit.
The recent rains have come too'late to
be of benefit to ti^e mead) we. The hay
crop is this neighborhood will be nearly,,
if nut altogether a failure. 1 notice some
have turned their stock in, aud are pas
turing the old meadows.
Politics do not bother the farmer very
much, but the result of tbe great gather
ing at Chicago laat week was a complete
surprise to us all. Everything seems to
go on smoother, work seems really easier,
and we not only feel hopeful regarding
our DmBpecfB for big crops, but also re
