L. R. CRITCHFIELD, In the Ohio Senate, on Tuesday, March 27, 1866, on Mr. Dangler's House Bill To Provide for the Appointment by the Governor of Police Commissioners for the City of Cleveland. of TiTr. President : I feel It my dutv, In behalf of a large portion of the people of the city of Cleveland, and more particular ly. In behalf of the principles of popular suffrage, to protest against the passage of this bill. I believe that the General As sembly can exercise none but delegated powers and is restrained by the Constitu tion within thelltnits of enumerated powers. All powers not in the Constitution delega ted remain with the people, and whenever the General Assembly transgress this) -lim itation its action is void. Jiut little is said in the Constitution of the United States about the right of the people of the btates to elect their officers, for the reason that the States were to be supreme over that ques tion, and for the reason that a government cannot be republican except upon the prin ciple that the people choose their publio officers and agents. No more familiar Idea prevails than that the will of the people is the foundation of our Government Is the unrerne rule of action. The framers ot our State Constitution clearly recognized and acted upon this principle, and by that Instrument this question ana an otner questions of power may be best tested. The General Assembly are prohibited from exercising the appointing power. Who may exercise it anu in reierence 10 what subject ? By this act it is attempted to invest the Governor with this power of appointment. The Constitution defines his general power "tne supreme executive power of this State shall be vested in the Governor," and other powers of a specific nature are given him, but none ot them go so far as to substitute his will for the will of the people or any portion of them. The Governor executes such Constitutional powers as are conferred upon him. This aw is general in form and specific in appli cation. The principle Is general, and if it might be applied in this case it might be annlied to everv citv and vlllnge in Ohio. Another Legislature might so excenu tc Our friends in Cincinnati, uoiumous, uay- tnn. Toledo and in everv citv and village. may be visited with this blessing of dis franchisement. It thereforo becomes exceedingly important. It puts an immense power, snscepuoie oi im mense corruption, in the hands of one man. By a little turn of tho political wheel this precedent may become exceed-ino-lv disagreeable to mv friends of the op position. The Question involved then is tiiisWhether the General Assembly can confer a power of appointment upon the Governor which will disfranchise the peo- Fle of every city, town and village in Ohio.' deny the authority. The power is a nul lity when conferred, and the Governorcan- not execute it. Notwithstanding hts ap nolntnientthe Deonle may elect and diore gard the ofllcers imposed upon them. The Governor can execute the laws when his noweris necessarv to be invoked: but he cannot exercise the elective franchise for any portion of the people, 'lhis places him not in an executive capacity, but in an elective oapacitv. ' No such power was ever designed to oe conierrea in inetjon stitution of a free people. There isadis tinction between conferring the power to appoint certain agents and olllcers, general in tneir nature, not maae elective unaer the Constitution, nor affecting the local In terests of the people nor their self-govern ments and such oillcersas are to be the re positories of the popular discretion and Government. The Governor might be in vested with the power ot appointment ot stafl ofllcers, to fill vacancies, to appoint directors, agents, &c., for these are inter mediate ageneies to carry out powers with which thev have invested an oillcer whom they have elected. I concieve, generally, a distinction between the grant of funda mental powers and those which are sec ondary and pertain to the execution of the powers. The Governor is an executive oflleer and not possessed of any powers ex cept those which are delegated, and he cannot be Invested with the original power of election, belonging to the people and which has never been surrendered. But tho Constitution was designed to provide for the election of olllcers to whom the people eommunicatea ineir powers. This does not necessarily apply to such olllcers as are merely subsidiary to the ex edition ot the main power, nor to such ofll cers as the people have communicated to the agent the power to appoint, such as marshals, supervisors, police, etc., for these may be appointed by the higher ofllcers elected, but not by the Governor, for the Constitution has limited his power. The Constitution provides that the election ot county and township ofllcers shall be pro vided bv law, and no other mode can be substituted. If a city should become co extensive with a township, nevertheless township olllcers must be elected, and is it logical or reasonable to suppose that the Constitution would hedge around township olllcers with all its potency and preservo tho elective franchise to the people, and yet disfranchise the same people in reference to officers enuallv. if not more, important, and prohibit any election whatever? I do not believe it. I think it may be conceded that the gen eral rule is that all otneers snau oe elective. That it is one of the inherent powers of the people to elect, and that that power is re served to them, by the Constitution unless delegated to some other power. It is claimed that the 7th section of Arti cle 13 of the Constitution gives the power claimed. "The General Assembly shall provide for the organization of cities and incorporated villages by general laws, and restrict their power of taxation, assessment, borrowing money, contracting debts and loaning their credit, so as to prevent me aouse oi bucu power." The first clause of this section has reference to the organization of the people into a corporate body for the purpose of enabling them to exercise the rights which belong to them. It cannot be claimed that It involves the deprivation of the elective franchise. The people never would consent to such a deprivation. Ihe right to choose ofllcers is above a corporate organization. The right to vote can never be taken away bv an act of incorporation. The act of In corporation Is but an enabling act to the JCtl JlC lV oulil7 4(1, jiwg vub Mtrnii:. vv vote to carry out the objects ot the organization their welfare. The restricting por tion of the clause simply enumerates cer tain powers and provides for their regula tionit is enumerative of certain leg tela tire restrictions and excludes all others. This clause of the Constitution does not sanction this anomoly In legislation. : Section 27 of Article 2 6f the Constitution isalso cited as authority for this bill : " Tbe election and appointment of all otllcert, and -. -' the filling of all vacancies not otherwisl provided tor by this Constitution, or thf) Constitution of the United States, shall be made In such manner as may bo directed bylaw,"&o. This section relates to the manner of hold ing elections and making appointments 1n certain cases, and can have no bearing what ever upon the question of the power tp elect or appoint. It gives neither the Gov ernor nor the General Assembly any new grant of power, and the whole question 1b yet left without any constitutional sanction. In no cade ought the Legislature to act upon a doubtful question. A doubt should cause every right-minded man to hesitate; and, to say the least, the power claimed is doubtful, and can be gathered from the Constitution by inference only. I believe the power is prohibited, and the practical operation of the principle strengthens the argument. To till every city, town and village with olllcers appointed by the Governor, responsible to no one but himselt having no respect for any but lilniselt, disregarding the people ovor whom they exercise their authority, and breeding corruption in every part of the State revives tire infamous tyranny of the worst times. To control elections, to im pose rules, regulations and enforce au thority over an unwilling people, to pejr- : petrate outrages, without tbe hope of a change, is the worst species ot tyranny: and such, ultimately, would be the effect of the principle ot this bill. Though tne people were against ii, this thing is proposed to be established, and tpsay that this is constitutional isto de prive the Constitution of its greatest strength, the public respect. I have been Informed that the majority or the people or the city of Cleveland are oppose 1 to this bill. That if It was submitted toavote, they would vote it down, and am in tor mot rurciier oy a mem ber of the House, that a gentleman there who Is prominently connected with this bill Is looking forward to the ascendan cy of the Democracy In that city, and that this bill is to put it beyond the reach of the people to govern themselves, and fasten a city government upon them for years to come. This bill provides that the officers appointed by the Governor shall hold their olUces tor eight years. This is welldcsign- ed for the purpose, out let gentlemen re flect that the btate may change, ana that Vallandigham, Thurmnn. Ranney or some other Democrat may become Governor, and that then the ingenuity, the chicanery of thlf.bill will return to plague the inventor. It scarcely ever fails so to do. 1 cannot oe lieve that many of the members here whom I have been induced to think respected the Constitution, will vote for such a principle. With the Const itution against it, with its numerous effects ot oppression, ana Its total violation of the principle which is the corner-stone of our political edifice popular suffrage, I prophecy either the defeat ot tne Dill, or such a storm of Indignation among the people ;s enloreement is attempted, as will where its recall the servants of the public to a sense of the duty they owe to the people a re spect for the elective franchise.

The intention of the article a few days since, Headed "hopnism oi Assumption," was not so much tor the purpose oi discuss ing the causes ot the war, as for showing the method by which the public sense was fierverted the plan resorted to by tho ma- ignants for the purpose of setting a peo- pie, allied to each other by the ties of re ligion, material interests, and blood, to cut ting each others throats. We undertook to make it appear that this was done by the set tled policy (no doubt matured thoroughly in council) ot ignoring common sense, facts, and reason, aud of appealing to the tricks of the Sophist. Among these tricks the fallacy of assumption figured conspicuously. Alter the Southern people had been insult ed into tbe indiscretion of making them "strike the first blow," it was assumed at once that they were traitors, trying to de stroy "the best Govern ihent the world ever saw," and, jn tne acnrium oi tne time, tne multitude accepted this as fully as they would have done a demonstration In mathe matics. They did not stop to inquire into the animus ot Abolitionism; into the elec tion of Lincoln, and his pledges to his party, to take from the Southern people their property without compensation, but rushed at once to arms, believing them selves at the time tho defenders of the Union. What a commentary this upon public intelligence! A series of fallacies, the only apology for the slaughterof more than two millions of whites and half that number of negroes! No good reason could have been given for the war; and hence nothing of the kind was attempted. There has been since the formation ot the Government a very large amount of specu lation upon State rights and Federal rights. Fixed opinions in regard to either are not warranted Dy the origin or history ot Amer ican institutions. The right of a State to secede under certain circumstances has had currency in every State in the Union, and has always been, by both Aortn and boutii, held as a club over the bead of the Federal Government to prevent its eucroachmenta upon State Institutions. The putting or tno doctrino into practice was unfortunately first attempted by the South ; but it should be recollected not until a Convention had been requested for the purpose of settling in a friendly way the troubles. The act of secession was as unphilosophical as unsuc cessful. The States that went into tho measure expected that by it they would bo able to prevent being robbed of their prop erty, expected to be able to place their rights beyond the reach of tho whimsical fanaticism ol New England. . - We are just now In a state of anarchy, complete in all its details. Right-minded men everywhere look with horror upon the past, and feel a dreid tor the future. What, there is left of hope, that noblest and most faithful of all passions, seems to point to President Johnson. Providence, it appears, has provided him as a break-water to stay the angry waves of vil passion. He has, with patriotic bands, removed the cover from tho worst heads that ever cursed any nation. Ue has, too, singled out the class that deserve public execration. 1 He has done more. He has cut the frennra of the national tongue, and authorized, by his own example, the normal use of the organ. Arm drew Johnson is all right. , Tim ouly fears we have about him are fears for his power. H. New Hampshire Election.

Some eight or ten years ago the winter was very cold, the river waa frozen, and all . the "wharf rats" In Rat row and elsewhere, along the river shore, were thrown out of work. A near relation of the old gentle man came to the city, and passed the night at his house. After tea he sauntered to thd office to take a quiet cigar. To his surprise he lound it tilled with a crowd more than, fifty of brawney, beastly-looking men". The presence of the child-like old mat, his face beaming with shrewdness and kind ly humor, seemed alone to keep them from being a mob. His manner to them said: "You poor wretches, I know how recklea you are: yet I am not sure but I should b as bad, had I been exposed to the same bad influences." These houseless vagrants had been coming every night, while the river was frozen, to get a dime tor a night's lodg ing. 1 - The young man had been forced, front the unpleasantness of the crowd, to go and enjoy his cigar outside.. As he sat there, the Ugly crnwfl filed out rjiitetly, each With his dime (the clerk distributing),- till tbe last man. He seemed to feel very ill used, and was scarcely clear of the door-way be fore he. gave Tent to his indignation: "111 be d d If I don't let the old know that I won't be put off with afire-cent piece and a three-cent piece! Led me catch him. out, and I'll maab hie" etc., etc. Glowing with righteous indignation, ana glad of the opportunity, the young relative rushed In and exclaimed: jlr. , lhave had many occasions to remonstrate with you on your indis criminate charities, your encouragement of beggary and ylce. The wretch who went out last is breathing threats of personal violence against you, because he has been put off with a nve-cent piece and a throe cent piece." .' ' How was the indignant remonstrant mor tified when the old man simply turned uta head to the clerk, and said : . " Mark, why did you hot give that matt his dime?" ' " I had given out all the dimes, sir, ana I gave him all I had left." " ' See that he gets his extra two cents the next time he comes. I have no doubt I should have been mad, if I bad been in his place." '. Too Many in a Bed. Emigration to the State ot Michigan waa so great during the year 1835-30, that every house was filled every night with travelers wanting lodging. Every traveler there at that time will remember the difficulty Of obtaining a- bed in the hotels, even if ho had two or three "strange bedfellows." The Rev. Hosea Brown, an eccentric Methodist minister, stopped one night at one of the hotels in Ann Arbor, and in quired if he could have a room and bed to himself. The bar-keeper told him he could unless they should become so full as to render It necessary to put another in with j him. ' ac an eany nour tne reverenu genue mau went to his room, locked the door, re tired to his bed, and sunk into a comfort able sleep. Along toward midnight he was roused from his slumber by a loud knocking at tbe door. s "Hallo I you there," he exclaimed, "what do you want now ?" particular stress on the last word. "You must take another lodger, sir) in with you," said the voice of the landlord. "What, another yet?" "Why, yes, there's only one in here isn't there?" . . i "One! why, here is Mr. Brown, and the Methodist preacher, and myself, already, and I think that enoug for one bed, eyen in Michigan." The landlord seemed to think so, too, and left the trio to their repose. . The Reason Why "Brudder Dickson" Left the Church. Mr. Dickson, a colored barber, was shav ing one of his customers, a respectable citi zen, one morning, when a conversation oc curred between them respecting Mr. Dick son's former connection with a colored church In the place. "I believe you are connected with tho church iu street, Mr. Dickson ?" said the customer. " ' . "No, sah, not at all," replied tho bar ber, i "What, are you not a member of tho Af rican church ?" "Not dU year, sah." ' "Why did you leave their communion, Mr. Dickson, if I may bo permitted to ask?" "Why, I tell ye sah," said Mr. Dickson, strapping a concave razor on the palm'ot his hand. "It was jess like dis I jined dat church in good fait. I gib ten dollars to- ward de stated preaching ob the gospil the fuss year, and do church peepill call hie Brudder Dickson. De secotid year my blz ness was not good and only gib fibe dollars. , Dat year de church peepill call me Mr. Dickson. Dis razor hurt you, sah ?" "No." I 'Well, sah, de tird year I feel berry poor sickness in my family and I didn't gib noffin for preaching. Well, sah, arter dat dey call me ole nigger Dickson, and J leff em" So saying, Mr. Dickson brushed his Cus tomer's hair, aud the gentleman departed, well satisfied with the reason why Mr. Dickson left his church. What the Leaves Say. Yon have often gazed upon the many colored leaves which fluttered in the au tumn breeze, j ust ready to fa 11 to the ground. Did you ever listen to hear them talk to your tor taitt uiey Juiunici. siu.,, ,.-- guage tcmngyou oi me ongni springtime, when they drink in the gentle dew, and inhale the balmy air and spread out their delicate fibres to the rays of the bud, and fashioned by a divine Creator to forms of beauty, and painted by his hand, assumed tho pleasant green ; and how, upheld by his power, they bad borne the pelting, of many a pitiless storm, and the scorchhig heat of the noonday sun, while many, or their companions had faded and fallen' to the ground. 1 And they would tell you that, one by one, they too should fall. Thus these lading leaves talk to us of life's even ing, and whisper to ug to be ready, for "wo all do fade as a leaf." And do they ndt talk to us of something brighter .and better-of the unfading leaves of tbo tree that grows upon the banks of the river of life. And urge us to see that heavenly world t L 10 . , ' ' ' - Tl - A Fatal Political Quarrel. For some time in Williamson county. IU. political feeling has' been runulng very high. It appears that a number of Repub licans of the county were banded together to "clean out" Copperheads, aud never, lost an opportunity to insult Democrats by call ing them "Traitors," "CoDDerhead."
