Warren, "Wednesday, March 14.
When the Congress of last winter
passed the Xabrasta and Kanzas bill,
the indignation which flashed from the
Northern press, and the universal voice
of execration which arose from the
aroused masses of the free States, start
led the perpetrators ot that shameful
iniquity into a fear that they had taken
a step too far, and secured a triumph
which had in it the seeds of a future dis
astrous defeat. When Charles Scvxer
cried down to .hem from the elevated po
sition of a true senator, fit to represent
a free and enlightened people, "This
is the besnnin of the end!" and de-
o e
clared to them in tones of eloquent
prophecy, that from the darkness of thai
outrage should rise the star of a new
and brighter dawn, then, even through
the bacchanalian revels of mad joy with
w hich the slavocratsof f e capitol hailed
the success of their diabolical scheme,
there flashed a sensation of fear, a
foreboding of the swift-coming future ;
and when the reports of mightymeet
inga held all over the country came
crowding each other along the wires,
which thrilled with sentient lightning,
some of the more cautious and less ex
citable looked blank "and whispered with
pale hps, 'they come!" In view of
this obvious danger there was one hope
to which these political traitors turned
for,1 consolation and encouragement;
"there would be a reaction" there
would be a little "fuss" made about it,
but before another important election
came round the thing would be forgotten.
Your thorough-bred demagogue has no
confidence in the intelligence or stability
of the common people. He believes
them ignorant, fickle and forgetful. He
looks upon them as "raw material" to be
managed Jy the exercise of his superior
cunning and forethought lor his own dis
honest ends. It is a theory borrowed
from, and born in, the diseased despo
tism of the old world, where the forced
ignorance and degradation, of the work
ing classes have given it the stamp of
truth ; but the time has come when in
the jree States of America, that is false
of ' American freemen, which in Russia
may be true of serfs and slaves. Hence
this reaction so confidently prophecied
by the Douglasites has failed to come to
the rescue. The recent senatorial elec
tions have deepened those fears, at first
so faint in pro-slavery hearts, to definite
and vigorous apprehension. Yet there
is but one cry which the Nebraskaite
can raise to cheer on his drooping and
disappointed followers "a reaction will
tome yet"
As an instance cf remarkable tenacity
- "under difficulties," we quote the fol
lowing from the Trumbull Democrat of
LTbere. is a reaction taking place in
the public mind ; the furore of tempo
rary excitement is subsiding under the
temperate' pressure of the "sober second
' thought."
Truly; "Hope springs eternal in the
human heart!" The Democrat man is
undoubtedly a person of vivid imagina
tion, with an mm vailed power of self de
ception ; but whether his readers will all
possess those qualifications to as great a
degree is, to say the least of it doubtful.
He fails to indicate a single tign of this
wonderful reaction. If he could only
give ua a-glimpse of the evidences of
the temporary character of the ami-Nebraska
exciiement" he would contribute
to the enlightenment of the public and
ourselves. Give us light, friend Ritezel !
Our neighbor of the Democrat seems
determined to misunderstand or mistep
resent us. For instance in his last issue
after giving the following extracts he
charges us with inconsistency :
" Just so far as the Know Nothings, or
aay other organization of men, take
thorough and consistent Anti-Slavery
action, just so far are we with them.
and no farther." Chronicle, of March
7, '55.
Resolved, That the emigrants and ex
iles from the Old World, should find a
cordial welcome to homes of comfort and
fields of enterprise in the New : and every
attempt to abridge their privileges of be
coming citizens and owners of the sol
among us, ought to be resisted with in
flexible determination. Resolution of
Free Soil National Convention of 1 852.
Now we put it to the good sense of
both the readers of the Democrat and
Chronicle, whether the comparison of
these two articles justifies any one in
saying that " the Chronicle has no serious
objection to a most detestable species of
white slavery, but laments unceasingly
over the humiliation of the "poor black."
If' (his latter sentence has any mean'
- ing we should like to have it shown. We
endorse now, as ever, both the extracts
where is the inconsistency ?

I regard our 10 per cent, interest law
a fraudulent act an act that has proved
suicidal to the best interests of the greet
mass of our fellow citizens, in a pecun
iary point of view, just as far as it has
effected them ; and uniformly demoral
izing in its tendencies.
But first, as to its unjust and fraudu
lent aspects and effects. The common
sense of the people of this State has been
lately expressed through her delegates in
our new C nstituiion, and by them sub
sequently rat tied ; prohibiting by a Con
stitutional provision partial legislation in
money mat ers actually requiring all
property (cot exempted,) to be tixed
"by a uniform rule." From this I de
duce a fundamental, settled principle con
tained in our fundamental or organic
law, viz: that no partiality shall per
vade our laws, in favor of, or against any
one class of our citizens in relation to
their property.
This rule or principle can as certainly
and effectually be sinned against by
granting privileges to one class of cH
zens in relation to their property, which
is denied to an other class in relation
to the same as by taxing property of
different classes of our citizens not by a
uniform, but by different and partial
rules, hence any law accomplishing that
object either way is equally an offence,
if not to the letter, certainly to the spirit
of the Constitution, and must be unjust
arid fraudulent.
I assume that no legislature in this
State ever passed an act to incorporate
a banking institution for the benefit of
the incorporators only, but for the ben
efit of the public, as the primary object,
to secure to the people the privilege of
obtaining loans of money to facilitate
necessary business operations at those
banks at 6 per cent, interest ; the rates
to which all banks were, and are si ill re
stricted by their charters.
The financial facilities they sought to
be secured to the people were to be
measured only by the entire amount of
funds the banks would be enabled to
loan for the public accommodation, and
during the entire period for which they
were chartered.
The people, through their representa
tives, (chosen annually from their midst
and sent away with a fresh knowledge
of their wants,) passed those acts of in
corporation, established our chartered
banks as valued institutions of our State.
They demanded them at the hands of
their representatives for their own ac
commodations and benefit. Thus Un
designed to interpose barriers, to protect
labor from the oppression that capital,
(in the hands of beings having the ap
pearance but not the hearts of men,)
was then, as it is now, constantly seek
ing to inflict upon labor, by voracious
demands of exorbitant interest.
Safe guards were thus sought to be
provided against heartless and extor
tionate usurers. There they were not as
numerous and shameless then as now.
It is difficult to conceive a more happy
condition a people could be in as to finan
cial affairs, than by thus having a safe
and well regulated banking system on a
scale proportioned to the business re
quirements of the state a system pro
tecting and securing in good faith the
incorporated bodies, as a part of the pub
lic, in their just rights, and through these
affording the public necessary facilities
to aid industry and enterprise at the law
ful rate of interest ; all reciprocally pro
moting; each other's interests.
It was never expected that misers and
extortioners, as destitute of patriotism
arid philanthropy as of principle, wou'd
ever countenance or aid those institu
tions, as they would stand directly in
their way to hinder them from grinding
the faces of the poor, by taking advan
tage of other's necessities.
Such a banking system the sovereign
people had a right to have. They by
these representatives passed nets grant
ing charters for banks to secure to them
selves those very objects. Those char
ters were accepted by the corporators,
and the banks rent into operation ac
cordingly. Thus the people as one parly
had secured to themselves rights as bor
rowers, and at rates of interest prescribed
and to continue till the expiration of the
charters. They had a right to do so.
As the charters were accepted, in effect
contracts were entered into between the
people and chartered banking companies.
By virtue thereof both parties high con
tracting parties if you please had se
cured to them well understood rights.
There has been very much talk about
the almost omnipotent power, as assumed,
of subsequentlegislatures to alter, amend,
or even abolish as interest, envy or malice
might bear rule, any provisions of tha
acts chartering our banks, and, what is a
little better than talk abjut tho matter,
we, though slowly, have certainly learned
by a late decision tf the Supreme Court
of the United Stales, thit so far as re
lates to one patty, the bank par:y, that
jt is not in the power of any legislature
to pas a Constitutional act abrid"in-'
the privileges or altering a single provis
ion of a bank charter, as it would in ef
fect "inval'date a contract." Now a
valid contract pre supposes two parties.
capable of making and having made, or
sntered vito it. Tfce reason of the de
cision of sail Court lies in common sense
and co nmon justice that entitles the pat
ty to be guarded and protected in i s
every charered right by every subse
quent legislature in good faith.

any such act is suicidal to the best inter-1
i sts of the State, just as certa nly as it
would be better Lr the people to le ena
bled to obtain loans from time to time at
6 per cent, at banks, than at rates vary
ing from 10 to 60 per cent, from semi-
i: J ... l.,loo
extortioners, as the case now is, ant to
an ex ent of more than one-third perhaps
of all the money which at this very day
is actually loaned at such ruinous rates
in this State !
At the haz lrd of lediousness I design
to labor this matter till I cannot be mis.
It never can quadrate with the views
of any one whose mental capacity is re
moved a single step from idiocy, or wiih
the principle of any one who would not,
if he could, cause his intt rest nnnually
to exceed Ids principle that a law of
Ohio can be founded in good policy, be
just, or anything less than a fraud upm
our chartered banks as one party, and
the people as the o'.her, that grants to
monied men at home, or from abroad, a
privilege of taking for money loaned a
higher rate of interest than is allowed to
our ciiizens on loans from banks. By
all others, it u ill be seen and condemned,
that such a law makes an unjust dis
crimination in favor of capital, (lured
from abroad or otherwise,) out of banks
and against capital in them, bidding a
bounty in temptation to the former hold
ers, licensed for the woik of extortion,
arming their weahh with power to op
press weakness everywhere, with advan
tage to wage a war, with aid furnished,
with full liberty against our banks re
stricted and bound. Now if the war
waged against them by brokers and all
the various money holders, of domestic
or foreign monied capital rushed into our
State, privileged by partial legislation to
take 4 per cent, interest more than that
allowed to banks, if by the united combi
nation of all that capital with that unjust
and exclusive privilege, brokers, restricted
by no penalty, and stopping at no 10 per
cent., but doubling or tripling that, by
gathering up and playing .nto each oth
er's hands by exchanges, and returning
by their respective runners the bills of
all our banks, daily or weekly, drawing
specie, therefore, the banks should be
compelled for thei" safety greatly to di
minish their discounts from their usual
accommodations, such a diminuation
throughout the State must necessarily
injuriously affect every honest business
and employment. Every poor man or
woman depending upon daily labor for
daily bread, would feel the injury, the
effects of the fraud wantonly inflicted.
Unfortunately I am speculating upon
no idle theory or hypothesis. In the
present existing state of things we have
an illustration cr rather' a demonstration
of the experiment.
Banks, from causes alluded to, have
actually been compelled, or deemed it
prudent, to diminish their circulation I
presume to one half of their usual ac
commodation to their customers.
Business men are actually compelled
to supply their respective deficiencies, if
at all, of these very privileged brokers
and fraudulently legalized extortioneis,
not at the rate of 6 per cenr. or 10 per
cent., but now taking advantage of their
own wrongs, of their rascality which in
principle and practice often connected
with misrepresentation and falsehood, is
scarcely better than theft and robbery,
ow disiegarding all law, as well as all
right, callous to all that is humane or
just, they, with the voracity of the grave,
that never says " it is enough," with
their ear,s attuned only to the music, and
their tongues taught only to sing th?
song of the daughters of the horseleach
give, give," tbey make their demands
continually proportioned to the very
necessities they have been united by the
cause of, and grant their accommoda-
tions to relieve their friends, as spec al
favors, not at 10, or often at 20 per cent
but varying upwards at rates as neces
sities warrant, from 25 to 60 per cent.
That these effects, disastrous as they
have been, horrid as they are, have been
the fruits developing and developed from
the taking effect of the 10 per cent act of
fering bounties in temptation to avarice,
and setting no penal boundaries to covetousness-,
none need deny. That such
would soon be the effects of the law to
a great extent, very many besides its in-t-r-
?td advocates anticipated.

by jury may le considered as a
"sick man;" it has had several paralytic
strokes. First came a succession of de
mons! rat ons in favor of abolishing all
action of grand juries, and leaving the yes
and no of indictments to remain exclusive,
ly at the will of a responsible public pros
ecutor. This was the repeatedly express
ed opinion of successive grand juries at
Middlesex, who have greater experience
on the subject than any other persons in
England. It is understood, in leed, that
at no remote day the present grand jury
system will be greatly, if not wholy abol
ished. The present blow was dealt by the es
tablishment of lhe county courts in En
gland, by which, plaii.titr and defendent
consenting, lhe decision could be given
by tho lawyer wlie presided as judge,
without bringing the case at all before
ajuiy. So extensively has this license
been made use of that, out of several
millions of cases which have been dispos
ed of in the county courts of England,
scarcely one in two thousand has been be
fore a jury. The public have referred the
decision to an impartial judge, and have
trusted the facts and the law to hi.ti.
The third blow is very recent, and has
scarcely b'.-en struck as yet. In the last
Parliamentary session a provision was in
troduced into a new stat-te for simplying
and improving common law procedure,
which allowed the judge, by mutual
written consent of the litigams, to try
questions of fact without a jury. This
will probably effect great changes. At
present, in the courso of equity proceed
ings, issues to try questions of fact are
frequently, sent down to the common law
courts. Heretofore such trials went be
fore a jury. In most cases, for the future
the judge alone will give the decision,
and it is expected (not unreasonably, per
haps,) that sounder judgments will be
given and more substantial justice per
formed than the public have received or
experienced when the jury system was
in f rce.
There appears no present intention of
interfering with trial by jury in criminal
cases. To deprive a man of the privilege
of being tried by his peers would probably
incur more disapprobation lhan law refor
mers in England would like to incur.
Yet it is understood that Lord Brougham
has the strongest doubts as to the pt-rfec-tio
i or propriety of the prestnt jury sys
tem in Engalud, and, with Lord Campbell
and other eminent British lawyers, desires
that the verdict shall be given by the ma
'jority, as in Scotland. It appears extreme-
n:ely absurd to expect jierf.-ct unammtiy
upon one subject from any collection of
twelve men. One refractory or conscien
tious juro under the preent system can
prevent the delivery of nny verdict, and
thereby duplicate the cost and trouble of
a trial, besides delaying it.
We have glanced at this question be
cause our own lawyers anil law-makers
ought to know how the law is being dealt
with elsewhere. No doubt they will at
tentively watch how the alteration works.
At all events its importance, legally and
sociailv, can scarcely bo exaggerated.
