NASHVILLE UNION AND AMERICAN, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1873.
WEIttXSOAY, IIIXXMIJI.K 31, 187:$. Kansas is :is prolific in aspirants for Senatorial honors :ib Tennessee. There arc no less than sixty candidates for the United States Senatorshrp from the formor State, not including cx-Scn-alor Pomeroy. Statesmen are thick out that way. A local paper says there are other men who expect to be elected, but they are too modest to say so. It is announced by the Washington Star that Mr. James Lyons, who was recently appointed United States At torney for the Eastern District of Vir ginia, has written a letter to the Presi dent declining the position. It is inti mated that Lyons considers himself slighted in not having been tendered the more honorable position conferred on Mr. Hughes. The 1'itUbiirgh Post nays: "General ITegley our own General Ncglcy has been re-elected President of the Union League of America. Considering the fapt that he is one of the leading de fenders of the salary steal, the Union League of America- has done jvell." 2Tegley is the sort of men the Republi can leaders delight to honor, as has been demonstrated in Congress. During the fiscal year ending on the 00th df June, 1873, the imports from Cuba into this country amounted to 77,-160,82C. Exports from the United States to Cuba during the same period, 15,2S1,039. "With a good government in Cuba, a government that would pro tect the people in all their rights, our trade with that Island would quadruple in a single year. PKOFLIG AtiX Of THE AH3IIMSTKA- The reckless profligacy of the Ad ministration is in the highest degree ularmiug, as a comparison with former Administrations will show. Li this comparison we exclude war, navy and pension expenditures, as the responsi bility for those expenditures rests upon those who provoked and produced the rebellion. Aside from this expenditure, wc have the following exhibit: Total. Increase. 24,274,921 1,02U,G27 7S,201,183 JS37-1 ISfil-GS.... 1MW-73-... jll5,S28,220 HO.KM.IKS "J0,732,7N) Total inc. Grant over Buchanan... $1K3,105.M2 " ' Grant over Lincoln 15,830,730 If the present Administration had displayed the economy that was exhibi ted under President Lincoln, the money which it has squandered in one term would have siiffiecd to carry it entirely through another term; for the increase is much more than double. And the amount of that increase is the measure of the plunder secured by Administra tion hangers-on. "A IEMOKAMSEI COXGKESS.' Under this caption the Boston Advcr titer, an Administration Republican journal, thus'mps its par ty: "What the nation regards, and will henceforth regard more serious than ever before, is not the loss of a few hundred thousand dollars, more orless, but the loss of dignity; not the cxtray- p. i ii., i.V.V- vjIivl o Jllll morals. Kb tax could be so oppressive or discouraging as these repeated cvr deuces of demoralization in hiih places. They poison the fountains of virtue all over the land. And in this direction Gen. Butler, twice repudiated by Mass aehusetts, is a fit leader. Gentlemen Representatives, Republicans or Dem ocrats, who follow such leading, you may well believe the people are not blind. Do what you may, the principles involved in this salary busi uess, win dc among ttie issues on which the country will p;iss judgment. Your attempts to whistle them down the wind will not avail. That part of the Republican party which assists or countenances such attempts will be defeated. Noither presidents nor cabinets, nor prestige nor patronage.' nor the cant oi uema irojnics can save it. The moment it is clear that corrupt and corrupting influ ences have procured control of the Re publican party and eannot be shaken oJT, there will be a new birth in poli ties. The forwardness of preparation among the people for such a contin gency is much greater thani- common ly supposed. The events in "Washing ton since Congress has assembled have not tended to quiet apprehensions that the Republican organization is drifting to the bad. Ko department of the pub lie sen-ice is in a satisfactory condi tion, and, worst of all, there seems to be an indisposition to work a refomia t:on. There is everywhere" indifference to the suggestions of wisdom and com- liion -scute- AYliuu iui .administration ceases to trust true men whom the peo ple trust, reserving its honorable re wards for subservient incapacity, the country will prepare for a change, and there is no help for it." IIl'YIAG AX EMXTIOrV IN SOirill CAKOEIXA. A dispatch was recently sent all over the country from Columbia, S. C, an nouncing that Senator Pattersim had been tried and honorably acquitted of all charges of corruption in securing his election to the United States Sen ate. The Charleston Ncics and Courier says the dispatch was a misrepresenta tion of the fa cts in t he case.concocted and forwarded in the interest of Mr. Pat terson, and adds: "The fact that the election of Patterson was procured solely by the use and promise of money is perfectly notorious in South Caroli na, and the United States Senate can, if it likes, easily satisfy itself that the partial defeat of the feeble efforts which have thus far been made to bring him to justice was accom plished by the very same means." The News and Courier prints the affidavits of some of the African Legislators as to the price for which they sold them selves to John Patterson. One Miller swears he sold himself for sixty-live dollars, which is far below the old price for a good field hand. Another, a like ly fellow, named Ellison, swears before Trial "Jestice" Kirk that lie sold him self for any sum of money between five hundred and a thousand dollars, and if so, that comes nearer old prices. An other, one Battcas, says he was offered four hundred'dollars. It will be seen that the range of prices is so wide that the' fail to establish reliable quota tions. The object of these oaths is to convict-John Patterson of bribing his way into the Senate of the United States a piece of business which no man in the United States doubts that the said John Patterson did successful ly transaet paying for th legislative votes considerations varying from a two-gallon jug of whisky to a thousand . dollars a head. THE SUPPLEHKXTAKY CI VII. EIGHTS EI EE. Whenever, therefore, a question arises concerning the constitutionality of a particular power, the first question is, whether the .power be expressed in the constitution. If itbe, the question is decided. If it be not expressed, the next inquiry must bc,vhethpr it is properly an incident to an express power, and necessary and proper to its execution. If it be, then it may be ex ercised by Congress. If not, Congress cannot exercise it. Mr. Justice Stoni. The civil rights bill, now before Con gress, provides that whoever, being a corporation or natural person, and owner or in charge of any public inn, or of any place of public amusement or entertainment for which a license from any legal authority is required, or of any line of stage coaches, railroads, or other means of public carriage of pas sengers or freight, or of any ceme tery or other benevolent institu tion, or any public schools sup ported in whole or in part at the public expense or by endow ment for the public, shall make any dis tinction as to the admission or accom modation therein of any citizen of the United States, because of race, color or previous condition of servitude, shall, on conviction thereof, be fined not less than 100 nor more than $5,000 for each offense, and the person or corpora tion so offending shall be liable to the citizen thereby injured in damage, tobc recovered in an action of debt. This bill is supplementary to a statute already ex isting on the same subject. Thepowcr of Congrats to legislate upon this sub ject is derived only from the following clause of the fourteenth amendment: "No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States." This is a prohibition on the States .and docs not, therefore, express ly confer upon Congress any power. Another section of the same amend ment confers upon Congress the power to enforce the provisions of the amend ment by appropriatc legislation. This power was implied already in the grant of the express powers, and was added out of "abundant caution." This su perfluous addition made at so advanced a stage of our history was extremely injudicial, if not silly. "What implied power, then, does the above prohibition carry with it to secure obedience to it? Until a State has made or enforced some law abridging the privileges or immunities of citizens, it would seem that.Congress -should have no occasion to exercise the authority which the prohibition im plies at all. Laws are usually made to cure an evil, and wise lawgivers have always waited for an evil to show it self before undertaking to remedy it; and while they have not been accustom ed to anticipate cviis, they have been equally unaccustomed to supply reme dies for imaginary evils, "Wc arc not aware that there has been any State legislation hostile to the privileges and immunities of citizens. But there are States in the .Southern portion of he .Union which are regarded as uncertain in their purposes; and those States might pass such a hostile law. "It is the bright day that brings forth the adder." Then, lest they may make the inimical law, pre vent. This is the logic that seems to instigate the Radical lawgiver of Amer ica. But what power does the prolnbi tion confer by implication? Docs the the prohibition iuiply that Congress may invest the United States Courts with sole and exclusive jurisdiction of every cause, arising out of a refusal by the owner of a public house, or by the directors of a public school or of a rail road, or by the keeper of a cemetery to admit or accommodate a citizen because of race, color or previous condition? Docs the prohibition on the States to do this or that confer upon Congress the power to take away from the State courts all cognizance of such cases and give it exclusively to the Federal courts, that they may constantly hold it and exercise it, whether or not there be any State laws hostile to the' provisions of the Constitution? The civil rights act so confers upon the Federal courts this exclusive jurisdiction. Is so radical a measure a necessary and proper means of enforcing the prohibition? Is it even "appropriate?" to use the licenti ous phraseology of such law-givers as Sumner. Did the people when they ratified" "thc f ourt-eontli amendment mean thus to strip the States of then authority? It cannot be. The ver biage of the prohibition will not admit of so loose a construction. Such a construction is utterly at variance with the spirit of the rest of the Constitution, and diametrically op posed to a long and time-honored cur rent of judicial opinions regarding the inviolability of the authority of the States to regulate their own internal police. If the Supreme Court shoidd decide the civil rights act constitution al, it would only be by accepting in a loose sense the phrase, "by appropriate legislation," which was a fraud on the popular will, designed to insure license to despotic rulers. It could never have been decided constitutional in the old view of the supreme law. The civil rights act is objectionable because it strikes away the authority of the States in an important matter; and we would much rather hear of a movement for its abrogation, than of a bill to supplement it. The fourteenth amendment was adopted when there was respect for the "higher law." The civil rights act was passed while there was respect for the same odious doctrine. And the effort to supplement and confirm this act, is evidence that the "higher law" still holds sway. But there is hope that the day will come when this "higher law" will be looked upon by the American people as the miserable and contemptible pretext for tyranny and oppression that it is. Garfield is growing virtuous. The Washington correspondeut of the Cin cinnati Gazette says: "If the Senate salary bill does not puss, and final action does not reduce all the salaries to previous rates, Gen. Garfield will ask the House, in behalf of the Committee on Appropriations, to order that the legislative, executive, and judicial bill shall only contain such appropriations for salaries as were provided by the law in force at the beginning of the last Congress, i IIlttlEEG AS A FIXE AKT. Every year since the war Congress has met and with becoming gravity de clared it to be wise and proper "to make provision, at the earliest practi cable period, for the redemption of United States notes in coin." This Radical humbug has become so polished by use and friction as to excite the ad' miration not only of all the supporters of Grant and Richardson, but of all who participate in the fun of a profita ble joke. Trading with and in the do predated notes of the government is far from being an honest calling. It corrupts the nation at its fountain; and where the head springs send forth water that is impure and poisonous, the contamination extends through all tire stream that lies below. Congress can not practice the tricks of bankrupt gamblers, paying one paper promise by issuing another, and not foster and patronize gambling luiiversally. All the talk about "making provision to redeem United States notes in coin" is a thrice acted farce, of which school boys ought to be ashamed. " Reduce the expenses of the Government to what they should be, to meet the ideas and condition of the people, and all deprc ciated paper woidd at once disappear, and be a matter of past his tory, The nation is to be plun dered, and its credit, as well as its cash, must be handled. How long will the country uphold this iniqui ty? The shrinking m'values that has already taken place renders this a very favorable time to resume specie pay incuts. If Congress waits for another inflation of prices, there must be anoth er crash, with another contraction, tens of thousands thrown out of cmploj---ment, with universal suffering, that long cultivated humbug may be prac ticed as a fine art. No other reason can be given for the present bankrupt condition of the Federal Treasury than to general squandering of the public money. The doubling-of the Presidents salary, and more than doubling of the annual expenditures on the executive mansion, are fair samples of the way that economy is practiced by a Radical Congress. There can be no reform till the people take the subject inhand,and punish every member who does not labor faithfully to cut down expense, reduce the tarriff, and pay promptly all debts that are due. The extravagance of Government is without a parallel in our history of one hundred years, and has become a very hotbed of crime. If this crime in public servants is not con demned and punished, its influence on society at large in all the States will be most calamitous. "Washington is a city whose example will corrupt both public and private morals far and near. Men now go there to steal themselves into the first circles in the Union, and the people arc taught to believe that such political and financial conduct is all right. A STA11TE1XG STATEMENT, The Cleveland (Ohio) Herald, an un wavering supporter of the Grant ad ministration, says: ""When Mr. Dawes states that the pay of the President, including salary and perquisites, amounts to -100,000 for a Presidential term, he states a fact that commands the attention of the country. At that rate of pay the office of President will be sought for its pe cuniary value. And when we arrive at that point we have entered upon the downward slope in the history of this Republic. It is a fearful thing for Congress to say to this country 'that the highest office in its gift is a position for the attainment ot wealth. There is reason to fear that we "en tered upon the downward slope" when the Republicans bought Grant and elected him President. "We have cer tainly been going from bad to worse ever since his inauguration. Here is one of the evidences as furnished by the Ncio Yorl: Tribune of Dec, 15: "If there is anything in which mere partisanship should be avoided, it is certainly in questions of public money. "We appeal to thoughtful citizens of all parties, and to idl honest Congressmen, however classified, to consider dispas sionately the present alarming defi ciency in the revenues of the United States Treasury. The temporary de pression in our foreign imports pro duced by the panic has undoubtedly diminished the revenue, but the extrav agant appropriations of the Forty-second Congress would have produced a deficiency without the aid of the panic. Certain it is that the expenditures of the current fiscal year will exceed those of the last by several million dollars, and yet the rdinary oexpenditures of the last fiscal year are without prece dent in the history of the country. "Why should the army expenditures be nearly three times greater, than, they were in 1860? "Why should the cost of he navy have more than doubled in the same time? Why should it still cost six per cent to collect the internal rev enue? "The fiscal year 1S68 was the last complete year of Johnson's administra tion. Since then it has been claimed that the Government has grown eco nomical. Wc should like to sec in what branch of the public expenditure this economy can be found. The public debt has decreased, and therefore the interest account is less burdensome than it was six ycais ago. Six years ago the army was larger than it is now, and vast sums were distributed about that time in bounties to the soldiers. These two items of extraordinary expense have naturally ceased to exist. But the navy costs as much and amounts to as little as ever. The chief remaining items of public expenditure, so far as the Secretary of the Treasury furnishes information upon which a comparison can be based, compare as iollows: Civil. 18CS. 1S7.-S. $.1,000,13.)

Uongress grows expensive in the same ratio that it grows contemp tible. As the Judiciary sinks in pub lic estimation the administration of jus tice rises m cost. Public buildiiiescall for five times as much afe they did five years ago. Indian airairs require double the amount they did m lobe, but what per centages go to the Indians and what to the agents we cannot Bav in every item there is an increase, ex ceptin the solitary instance of the Marine Hospital establishment. Ob serve", too. that the current fiscal year is destined to show a large advance on the disbursements of the last. In the year ended June 30, 1865, the last year of the war, the expenses ol the uovcrn ment, after deducting the interest on the debt, drawbacks, pensions and the cost of the Army and Navy, were only 34,015,ooc!.5b. The same expenses last vear were b7b,7)Ll.rJ5Mb, or sever al millions more than double. In 1868 they were 51,688,501.74. The respon sibility for the rapid increase of the public expenditures cannot be saddled on the panic or on Gen. Burricl. The taxes must at no distant time be in creased, and the reasons why an in crease is necessary-must be sought in the reckless mhdelity ot those in power both in and out of Congress. Shall it continuo unchecked, and unrebuked? IEOX, TIMBER ANO COAE. The Columbia Herald finds work for the next Legislature to protect the tim ber in "the iron counties of Hardin, r Wayne and Lawrence, from destruction by the annual burning of forests in that region. Col. KiUebrew is credited, by the Herald, as making valuable sug gestions on this subject, based on his industrial survey of the State, which is in progress. The following is copied from the Herald: "Now it is possible by any efficient law to keep the supply ot timber con stant. It is estimated that an area cx- tendine in every direction from the furnace of six miles would keep one with economy in blast perpetually, if there was a stringent law m action acainst firintr the woods. These files, which are kindled every year in the old coaling grounds, sweep with resistless fury, destroying not only the leaves, but all the young sprouts that shootuplrom the stumps of trees which have been used for making coal. These sprouts, if protected, would oe oi sumcienc size in twenty-five years to make good coaling wood. Nor is this a matter of surmise. Much of the land near Wayne Furnace from which fires have been kept out, has been twice coaled during the past thirty years, and the sprouts after the second cutting are now from eight to ten feet in height. On the other hand there are large areas covering thousands of acres which were coaled over twenty years ago in which not a tree as large as a man's arm can be found. And the cause of this is the annual burning which kills the young shrubs as fast as they shoot up, The excuse given for kindling these fires is that it induces an earlier growth of the grass, and that stock are able to subsist two weeks earlier in the spring in consequence of this burin". Now the woods may be valuable to that class of fanners who rely upon the commons for pasturage, but we protest that the loss to the owners of this property, and to the iron interest of the State is ten times as great as the value of the new grass for stock. If these fires are kept up the -seats of the furnaces will have to be changed every twenty or twenty-five yeara, and a large extent of the country rendered fruitless and worthless: a weary wild desert unprotected from the parching rays of the summer sun, a wild waste where even the barren grass will soon refuse to grow." There can be no reasonable doubt as to the soundness of these views; and with the loss of timber will follow less rain in the summer season and more severe drouths. Indians may kill thn her to make wastes and prairies, but civilized white people shordd know and do better. Well managed, a cord of wood will grow on an acre in a year, which gives 6 10 cords on a mile square of land. With good iron ore that costs nothing, coal made from ; forty square miles will yield a very desirable crop of this metal. By working up our pig iron into castings, bars, steel, nails and other articles, the value of the annual growth of timber rises into indefinite millions annually. A Western paper relates, as an illus tration of the power of love, the case of Miss Catharine Uates, ol Cornwall, Eng land, who traveled all the way toToulumne Countv, California, to wed the lover she had not seen for eight years, and found him wedded to a Mexican ranchero s daugh ter and the father of five children.
