We herewith publish an extract from It, replete in every line with truth and logic: " It is said in the extenuation of the interference of tho military power of the United State that the persons ejected from the Legisla tion liv thn Federal soldterr were not legally elected memoers oi that Legislature. Suppose that had been so ? but that is not the question. The question is, Where is tho constitutional principle. where the law authorixing Lulled States soldiera with muskets in their hands to determine who ts a legally elected member of a State Legislature and who not? It is raid that the mode ot organizing that Legislature was not in accor dance with tho statutes of ths State. Suppose that had been sof but that ig not the question. The question is, Where Is the constitu tional or legal warrant lor me Day oncts of tho Federal soldiery to In ternret the statutes of States and to decide for and iu a Legislature points of parliamentary law ? It is said that the Governor reques ted the aid of United States sol diers to purge tho Legislature of Illegal members. That may oe so ; but that is not the questiou.
