Ohio Statesman. [For the Ohio Statesman.] New England Ideals of the War and of our Historic Greatness. Henry WurJ Bueehfir, nnd I suppose lie knows, la reported to Imve said tliut New EiiglniKl litiA the bruins to think for Amur leu, and all tliut we of tlie '"Urt at West" have to do Is to belittle ourselves to a prop er humility and take the crumbs of thought that fall from the Ne w England table, and be thankful theiel'or, a we are presumed to lack the clas-du Usto and breadth of thought that pertain to tho.se whose ideas germinate and fructify at the "hub of the universe." Well, 1 take the "Atlantic Monthly," as well as some other New England periodi cals, desirous to be enlightened, of course, as to what Is to be the ltittire ideals of Jk-auty, I'ower, Excellence and Truth in our coun try. Anil In the number for this month, a writer who takes up (p. t!l(J) the "(piestiou ot monument" (h-plon'S that "In the mul tiplicity of our rude alhiirs" only "some oc currence of very terrible, vita or grotesque effect can take our minds trom our busi ness," And co, to correct our corrupt and vile American tate, the writer expresses the "hope tliut the people will not altogeth er relinquish the purpose of monumental commemoration of the war." And our School Houses," "Monuments," "fowii IlallJ," Temples, &)., should be conceived and executed In that, way that would devel op the beautiful, with the aid of the best genius that can be procured nt home or abroad. But then, of course, the writer does not leave us In ignorance wholly how tins is to be done, espet.U ly as all this should btf done with a view ol commemor ating the glorious deeds and heroism of the war. Oh no; he is not insensible to our need ol Instruction, nor are bis wuvs of do ing it as our untlioiiglitful and benighted thoughts would lead us to think, conceive and act. He says: "A commemorative edillce must lirstbe beautiful, since a shab by or ugly gateway, fountain or church would dislronor tlio e to whom it was ded icated; a school house or town hall built to proclaim pride and reverence cannot be a wooden b ix. but all must be structures ot enduriutr material and stately architecture. All should, it possible, have some siguili- caut piece of statuary within or upon tliem, or at least some place lor It to be af terwards tilled, and all should be enriched and beautilicd to the full extent of the peo ple's money anil the artists faculty, inns far the idea is well conceived, that the memory of our dead soldiers should be pre served as a heritage o valor and glory. We thank New England "brains" lor the idea, if not altogether new. And so far, "let us be tlinnkftil and with liomt fcjancho, Uod bless the giver, nor look the gilt horse in the mouth " Uut now for the statuary New England brains and taste dictate. As our Legislature lias passed a law "to au thorize the Commissioners of the several counties of the S:.ace to receive be quests, donations mill gifts, nnd to erect monuments to the memory of soldiers who died or were killed in the war of 1SIJ1," it is important that we should learn the b. st means and way to expend these bequests and gifts! Let the "Atlantic" writer answer, and torget not that the Idea lie proposes is loyal-Union -Republican con ception; not ours, certainly ! "The idea of our war" "should be represented in every memorial work of the time." "'A sublime partible, likb Ward's Statukof thk Ekkedma.n is TIIK FL'LI. KXI'KKSSIOX OF THK OXR IDKA THAT SHOULD UK COMMKMORATKD, and W'lltld better celebrate the irent deeils of our soldiers than bas-relirj's cf buttles, and statues of cap tains, and (roups of privates, or many scantily draped, improper jlyures, happily called Liber lies." Of course, the writer suggests no other.idea or subject for commemoration! Doubtless the jNcw Jiiiiglanuers are the modern " people chosen to keep alive the instinct of the beautilul," as this writer hints. And here is evidence of their fit ness for the divine mission. This writer says in eflect The beautiful" demands no likeness to be perpetuated ot MoUlellan, ol Sheridan, of Grant, or of Sherman; no marble snnilit.udes of our gallant captains who sealed with their blood iheir devotion to country, nor groups of those noble men, privates, who with no name to win, but only life to lose, gave life and all lor coun try and those ideals ot our past "liberty"- goddess,who with the war lias become an " improper llgure" in New England eyes and hearts least ot all should our new ideals uo contrasted and insulted by her presence and scant draperies. Well, if such must be, let us then lorget that we ever learned 01 the Ideals ot Creek beauty, of the creations of Italian painters and sculptors, set Powers' Creek Slave In the corner, forget our Gen erals, Captains nnd privates' forms and fea tures, but over school house aud town liall, monument nnd temple, place gigantic and sphinx-like figures of the "Freedmen," ne gro figures in ebony blackness, let the duskv eye he raised surrounded with its cloudy white, give full expression nnd ex tension to the thick Hps and pugnacious jaws of our negroes, aud henceforth make . .

Some western Copperhead who has not been 1 Iiodgl, . who only knows the plain rules of common sense, and Is ignorant of .esthetic culture, might probably grumble and say that the ancients made gods of thulr 11tl011s' heroes and idealized their conception In worship of their great quali ties; might claim that what our "groups of soldiers" fought lor was the preservation ot our mighty Federative Government of States In Union, and for the Integrity of that Union that the Stars ol our lag era blcmized to their laucy the noble memo ries of tho -heroes and patriots of our revolutionary history that the integrity of our country, of our Union, and of our history, were the ideals ot the western soldier, ho fought to preserve unsevered and unbroken; that to his mind emancipation was but a possible incident of the contest, and tuat tne ieatures ot a uo loved general, or comrade, or ey en the ideal llgure of that grand and priceless liberty he fouirht for would to him and to his children be more capable of making In the mind fit ting thoughts and cultivating a purer taste than the black and deformed figures of all the negro "freedmen" on earth.

EDITORS OHIO STATES.WAY: Well, Messrs. Editors, this is Monday, May 21 and a flnaday it is quite cool and iileasant. The city is robed in all Its glory. The two Assemblies are the main points of attraction especially the Old School. Its 'numbers are much greater than the other besides its subjects under debate are far more exciting, und I only express the Im partial and nearly unanimous Judgment of all who have as spectators visited both, and listened to the discussions, that the leading men In the Old are far more intellectual and noted than those of the New. So that it may he said, 110 one having tested the wine Af the former desireth afterwards to drink much of the latter, for saitli he the old is better. The solemnities of the Sabbath seem to have had a good ell'ect on the Assembly. Dr. lioardiuan, of Philadelphia, made one of the most masterly, eloquent, and tri umphant appeals this morning on the sub ject of Christian coiiscriatisin, that was ever heard in the Assembly since its fitt organization in Philadelphia, May 21, ITS!), up to this present meeting in St. I,nl., May 17, lSlili. The calm, dignified, Christ like spirit of this ever-to-be famous speech, commended it to all the vast tiudieiiee that heard it; I do not know as I should even except tne ino-st lUdical among the great orator's opponents. Hundreds wept as they heard it. It graph ically pictured the dread crisis to which our Church lias cOme under the lead of men guided more by pas-don than conscience more by the opinion ol a frantic world, than theirown bible-enlightened judguients.O, it was a treat to listen to. It was the talk in the Btreef.ears, hotels, &c, by all classes. Itm iy dog. mil. 1 am sun; it ought. If not, still . Dr. Itoardman and his many frien Is can. feel that it such wretched and singularly', frantic creatures as Hrs.

' All should read this speech. Its refuta tion of Dr. Thomas' miserable and truly shameful harangue of which I spoke in my last, was as complete as it was keen. Uut why do I analyze it? Isc-udit to you for publication u-f it is given in the ,st. L'iuis Meritocrat, a It 'publican paper of the most ultra Judical type.

' What has come to us of the discussions ot fh,.t ,lov I with in flip (Yin volition and anion tr the people, shows the ditliculty there wus in reconciling so many minus, 01 sucu diverse habits, to an agreement on the most flnl rh'tnils. and mav explain the rea son why so many points were lelt unsettled, and so many oiners nau to oeutjueruiiiieu by adjudication, in reconciling provisions which might seem more or less in conflict with each other. A consideration ot the Vastness of the scope required, or a slight acquaintance with the history ot leg islation, would assure one, a priori, of the practical impossibility Of making a code which should define everything, and sup ply a rule for every ease. In fact, the fram ers of the Constitution were compelled to employ sometimes tho most general terms, and to leave the exact boundary between rules to be determined by usage and the necessities of the case. It is not a blemish, but an advantage, that the meaning of the Constitution aud the extent of the powers which it has con ferred are subject to a progressive develop ment, so that still, as new exigencies arise, new powers are discovered, adequate to the wants of the time. Through so many trials of Its competency, the Government organ ized by the Constitution has been found adequate to its own preservation, and suf ficient to command the resources, of the tr, ti-i. curve neace. to repress vio- lence. and to vindicate the national honor. The same IMiexiuie ueierrniimiiou vi urn people to have a national Government, which produced the-prescnt Constitution, onnfrAiu,) ..km the earl v-eonstructlon and application of Its provisions..: Accoptlugi tho Constitution UOl us an euiattauuu u um some superior power, Infallible and un changeable, but as onn In a series of ex periments by which they themselves were seeking to find the most beneficial way in which tlie people could have their national Government carried on, they interpreted and applied It under tho guidance ot com mon sense, in the way whicli tney tnouguc most likely to make it successful in effect ing the object for which they had made it. We see this in the meagre accounts which remain to us of the debates in the tlrst Con gress. We know that It must have oeeu so trom the character ot the men who stooii, with Washington, foremost in getting the new Government into operation. Their success Is seen In the permanence of tlie principles and methods which they intro duced in the judiciary, the treasury, the army, and most other departments 01 administration. ' ' ' It was in this practical way that the nticstion was settled in regard to the power of removal trom olllee, which was not ex plicitly provided for in the letter ot the Constitution. Uy the Constitution it is re quired that the President shall appoint, "by and with the advice and consent of the Senate," all ollicers wlioso appointment is not otherwise directed by law. lie also has "power to fill up all vacancies that may happen during the recess of the Senate" by commissions which expire at tlie end of the next session. lint nothing is said as to the power ol removal from olllee, either for ollleial delinquency or at discretion. There were many jealousies to oe dealt witn in the introduction of a supreme government with all necessary powers. It Is probable trffct nn unwillingness to provoke such icalousv was the reason why tho trainers of tlie Constitution made no direct provis ion for removals. President Washington assumed that the power 01 removal was a necessary incident of tlie supremo execu tive power vested in the Prccident. and that such removal by the act of tlie President alone, during the r-eess of the Senate, caused a vacancy, whieli he was thereupon empowered to "Illl up." Tnis assumption. acquiesced In by the first. Lougress, be came the establiilied usage of the Govern ment to the present time. The f act that this uage did not pass un questioned, and that the subject was thoroughly discussed in C ingress, adds to the importance of the precedent, as proof that it was in full accordance with the will of the people at that period, and thus rests 011 the same authority with the written Constitution. The failure of all uttcuiots to change it is a further proof that Un popular will is unaltered in this respect, unit th.it this is part of tlie process by which tho people of the United States choose to have their Government adminis tered. The sullied crunc up In tho first Congress, on the liltn of May, 1 during the third week after the inauguration ol Che Presi dent. Mr. Midison moved the establish- inentof three Fxeeutivc Departtivnts ; out! of Foreign Atl'iirs. 0:1" for the Treasury, and one for War ; the Secretaries "to be re movable by the President. -Mr. Smith, ol S oiitli Carolina, thou ,'bttliat an olll terouce appointed "niut remain until convicted by impeachment." Mr. M idison said if such wero tlie true meaning ol the Constitution he would submit to it, but "as a fatd error in the system, and one that would ulti mately prove Irs destruction." lt said : "I think it absolutely necessary that the President should have th power of remov ing from office ; it would make him, in a peculiar manner, responsible lor their con duct, and subject him to impeachment him self, if he suffers them to perpetrate with impunity high crimes or misdemeanors against the United States, or neglects to superintend their conduct, so as to check their excesses. On the constitutionality of the declaration I have 110 manner of doubt." This full declaration by Mr. Madison is itself conclusive. It was supported in argument by such men as Egbert Uenson of New York; Vitiing, of Delaware; George Thatcher and JJeiijamin Goodhue, of Massachusetts; Ellas lloudinot. of New Jersey, anil George Clymer, of Pennsyl vania, and sustained by tlie House "by a considerable majority." The Huhject was discussed again on the 16:h ot June, when the Opposition renew ed their most strenuous efforts, on a great diversity of reaon, to have the clause stricken out. Tho bill was supported by Theodore Sedgwick and Fisher Ames of Massachusetts, in elaborate arguments go ing to the nature of Government. Iheir arguments and those of Mr. Madison are worthy of being reproduced at this time. The motion to strike out was lost. 2') to ,'! 1, and the clause passed, as It stands to this day. Mr. Ames said, "The power of re moval is Incident to government ;" aud Mr. Sedgwick said, "It must be conferred upon the President by the Constitution, as the Executive officer of the Government." Mr. Madison said : h "Where the people are disposed to give so great an elevation to one of their fellow citizens, 1 own that I am rot alraid to pla e my confidence in him. especially when I know that he Is impeachable for any crime or misdemeanor before the Senate, at all times; and that, at all events, he is im peachable before tho community at large every four years, and is liable to bu displaced if Ids conduct have given umbrage during the time he has been in olllee." , These thoughts are eminently proper to be considered at the present time, both by Congress and by the people. It surely fol lows, that any curtailment of this power of removal will destroy the balance ot pow er in the Government, will so far disable the President from securing the properex ecution of the laws, and thus enable him to shun tho responsibility which belongs to his olllee. It would also weaken the hands of the Executive at the very time when great publio exigencies may require that his olllee should be strengthened to the ut mostvigor of action, as In the time of war or of civil disturbance. We ought not to forget that legislation is to affect the future as well as the immediate present. [From the Logan Gezette.] The Confusion of Tongues—Astounding Disclosures.

The Abolitionists were having a gay and festive time all their own way when Andrew Johnson, succeeding to the Chief Magistracy, threw his shadow upon. them in cold and startling eclipse. They did not pause in their high career to n what this might mean, but the gaiety which lwd characterized their proceedings subsided Into an expression of defiant determination to carry out their revolutionary designs at all hazards. ' . Negro suffrage, indiscriminate, and re gardless of the unanimous protest of the people,1 wus carried through the House of Representatives, for tlie District of. Co lumbia. Then came tlicsum of all villainies in the shape of the Freed men's Uurcau bill, and the President was asked to perjure hU soul by giving it his hand and seul. 1 instead of accommodating the scoundrels in this n ay, he sent his devastating veto crushing through the hulk of their piratical crafW ami followed up the ussult with a speech which chattered their rigging into ribbons. Here begun the grand seene of confusion, which, "worse confounded" by the trueic fute of the Civil Priglits bill, has presented in its details all the varied form.-: of impul sive filly and ludicrous indiscretion, to which we have adverted in our preface When it became evident that the Aboli tion ship was in peril of sinking, a portion of the cooler heudsnmong thecn-w lowered the long-boat, and made lor shore. This only increased the coiiNterjiation aboard. Some even began to uncover frauds and toss them upon the waves in the vain hope of propitiating the gods. Some cursed the exemption of Government bonds trom taxation, and some ruiletl at old Steven fur brewing the storm. A good many were dumb, which was their best holt.

I natural interest felt in transpiring political events which are to settle lor weal or woo the destiny of our eoutitry. In securing a lavorable de cision ot the questions now before the country eory good citizen has a duty to perform tinit Is of tar higher importance than the mere question of of lice. He is to vote In such a way as to up hold the arms of those who are striving to prevent the overthrow ot the Union nnd the establishment 01 a central despotism. This is the great duty every voter is called' upon to discharge, and it may well arolue the noblest ellorts he Is capable of render ing. The contest will gain additional in terest nnd" Importance lrom tho fact that nineteen Congressmen are to be chosen, and in makine; choice of these; nil who wish the country brought back to tranquility and the States resftired "to their practical relations to the Government." will have au opportunity of uijing,,l,ti that great work by voting lor men who will go to Washing ton and aid the Presidentm his honest ef forts to etfcS those objects.
