THE SPIRIT OF DEMOCRACY
EDITED BY J. R. MORRIS. WOODSFIELD, OHIO: SATURDAY, MARCH 6, 1847. O-The Editor is yet unable, from hit protracted illness, to attend to any duties connected with the office. On Monday last flour was selling at Pittsburgh and Wheeling at $3,50 ve ry trifling demand at that price. ki,,Vi For the Spirit of Democracy. TO THE PEOPLE OF OHIO. Friendi and fellow citizens: .;, . The advocates, of the new and ameliorated order of things, pro pose not only to reconstruct our ju diciary system so as to adopt it to our numbers, wealth and circumstances; but to change the appointing power, to take it from the assembly and vest it in the electoral body at large. It may be asked, are the people .at large a safe depository of such power? "Are they capable of making a wise and discreet choice of judges! liong reflection has brought the subscriber to the con elusion that they constitute the best possible depository of the power in question No abject flattery of the people is to 6e expected from my pen. It will re fuse to write when forbidden to em ploy the language of manly boldness and freedom. Democrats cannot write in courtly phrase; when fellow citizens consult together for their mutual hap piness and welfare, fawning and sub serviency would be truly disgusting. Having premised thus much let us en quire what qualities are desirable in the appointing power. Honesty of in tention is one of the principal. Now thiquality we may always expect in the public at large, it can have no interest in doing wrong. An individ ual cast on a desolato island or other wise separated from all his species could have no interest in defrauding or wronging himself." The situation of a great community is precisely analogous to that of the individual in the suppo sed case. It constitutes a great, aggre gate, political person subsisting on its own means and incapable of increas ing those means by practising a fraud upon itself. Men are sometimes tempt ed to do wrong, because while they perceive the general tendency of their actions to be injurious to mankind.they vainly hope for a balance of advantage to themselves. The great public, in the nature of things, can never be sub ject to any such temptation. We may therefore lay out of the question all intentional sin committed by the peo ple in the matter of elections. We have nothing to deal with but their er rors and mistakes. We have nothing to guard against but the arts and in trigues of demagogues and designing men. Now this perfect probity of the appointing power is a great point gain ed. Honest error is less pernicious and less to be dreaded than dishonest intention. I say perfect probity, for although a few voters may and will no doubt be influenced by sinister and in direct motives.yet a majority can never labor under such influence. And even a large part of the corrupt few may vote or the right candidate from wrong motives so as to secure the prepond erance to the honest and undesigning, who will immeasurably outnumber the former description ot characters. The very worst motives which can be ex pected to operate are, kindred, family connexions, personal or sectarian fa voritism. Pecuniary bribery is a crime unheard of in our country. The little squad of electors in an English borough may sometimes be bribed, but what mine of Golcondaor Peru would be sufficient to bribe the host of free men in one of our judicial districts? Universal suffrage is the true remedy for direct bribery and corruption. It may be further remarked that where that most sordid and loathsome species of corruption prevails the prizes are worth the purchase here we have none euch. Our best places are not worth buying. As to partizan feelings the case can not be worsted. Party Spirit is onip- ottnt with our present appointing pow er. Its sway cannot be extended by chmge. If, therefore, it shall appear that probity of intention cannot be attribu ted to the present appointing power id io eminent a de gr as to creajl public, and that it is still more liable to error and mistake than the public; the friends of the people and of popular rights, advancement and happiness will have gained their cause, and they desire no other triumph. An attempt will be made to prove both these points in future numbers of these, essays. A long dissertation at one time would neither comport with the leisure of the reader or the writer. In con clusion, we observe that our -present institutions are defective. They are behind the ngc. They are unworthy of the middle of the nineteenth century. We ran bring about most important ameliorations. Yet we indulge in no extravagant expectations. We do not hope for absolute perfection. No doubt the destined struggle between the ge nius of good and the genius of evil, the spirit of right and the spirit of wrong will continue until it shall please the almighty disposer of events to bestow on virtue iu final tiiumphand on vice its last and decisive overthrow. Yet in the mean time we may well expect the advantage to become? mare and more miin&st on the sido of virtue and humnfi happiness. It therefore becomes pod men io bestir themselves and not to sit down contented with institutions acknowledged to be defective. Im provementand advancement are laws of human nature instituted by heaven, and therefore we must have a conven tion to amend our constitution. Most lespectfully. &c. EDWARD ARCH BOLD. Feb. 27, 1847. No. 8. Kail Road Terminus. As considerable anxiety appears to exist, in this section of country, in re gard to the western terminus of the Baltimore and Ohio Kail Road Compa ny, we give below the proceedings of the Virginia Legislature upon that (to them) vexed question. The Bill, as or dered to be engrossed may pass; but will the company accede to its provi sions? In order to show the views and deter mination of the Company upon the subect, we append the proceedings of a meeting recently held by the stockhol ders. Virginia House of Delegates. Wednesday Feb. 24. RIGHT OF WAY. The House took up the order of the day on the bill introduced by Mr.Shef- fey, tor the extension ol the Baltimore and Ohio Rail Road through Virginia. Mr. oheney withdrew his amend ment heretofore noticed; and Mr. Edgington submitted an amendment authorising the company to terminate their road at Wheeling, and in the route thither to strike the Oiiio at the mouth ofFishcreek; but if altera sur vey, it should be found that the route partly by Fishcreek and partly by Gravecreek, was a better and cheaper route, or if it be more costly, provided Wheeling should pay the difference of cost in construction, then, in either case, the route partly by Fishcreek and partly by Gravecrek to Wheeling should be pursued. Mr. Edgingtnn explained and sus tained his amendment, and Mr. Hun ter spoke in reply in opposition to it, and in favor of his own proposition lor striking ihe Ohio at "ishcreek, and constructing a lateral branch from that i Wheeling provided Wh -eling should subscribe not less than $1,000,- 000 to the improvement, and provided further, that her bonds given in pay ment of her subscription, should not be sold in the market for less than 75 cts. in the dollar. Before Mr. H. had con cluded, The amendment of Mr. Ldgington ,was agreed to by the following vote: Ayes 66iNoes 57. Air. Edgington further moved to amend tv striking out the 4th section of the. substitute proposed by Mr. Hun ter, all alter the word "uaiiirnore in the 6th line, and insert "Irom or to any noint distant more than five miles in a direct line from the Ohio river, more in the aggregate than for transporta tion or travel from Wheeling to Balti more or from Baltimore to Wheeling. respectively." The amendment was agreed to. Mr. Edgincton further moved to amend by striking out the 7th section of the substitute and insert: "Be it fur ther enacted, That the city of Whee- inc may subscribe to the capital stock of said railroad company such sum not exceeding $1,000,000 and upon such terms, as may be agreed upon between the council of said city and said rail road company" which amendment whs agreed to. Mr. Kdgington moved to strike out of the 9th section alt after the word "shall." in the second line and insert "accept this uct within six months,nnd enter upon the construction of the con,' tjnuation of their road hereinbefore au thorized, within three years, and shal complete the same within twelve years after the passage of this act;" which amendment was acreed to. - Mr. Edgington moved to strike out the 8th section, which was agreed to. Mr. Duncan moved to amend by in serting the following tor the section just stricken out. "Be it further en acted, that the said railroad to be con' structed through the territory of Vir ginia, shi.ll reach or cross the Tygart's Valley River at or within three miles up the mouth of Three Fork Creek, in the county ol iayler. Mr. Ha rnson of Loudon offered sev. oral amendments, which, after discus sion were rejected. The said amend ments as amended, were then offered by Mr. Hunter and adopted. The bill was then ordered to be en grossed. B A LTIMORE& OHIO RAILROAD. At an adjourned meeting ofthe Stock- noicers in this company, (on the 22d ult.,) a report was submitted which re commends an unconditional subscrip tion to the nttsnurgh and Uonnells ville Rail Road Company upon the part ot the Baltimore and Uhio Kail Road Company of Six Hundred Thousand Dollars, if the remaining amount suffi cient, with the Pittsburgh subscription of $350,000, to complete the road to the State line, should be provided by the City Council and the citizens of Bal timore; which report, together with a preamble and resolutions in which thev set forth their objections to a Bill reported in the House of Delegates of Virginia, authorizing said company, to construct the extension ot the railroad through that State, terminating at Wheeling, were unanimously adopted. Below we give the resolutions. Resolved, that this Company will not construct their road through the State of Virginia according to the provisions ofthe said Bill, reported from the se lect committee. Resolved, that this Company will not construct their road to the city of Wheeling, by any route whatever, or upon any terms by which they are de nied the privilege of a terminus on the Ohio river, by such route as the Com pany may, at its option, select, at a point not higher than the Mouth of t ishing Greek; or by any route under an obligation to complete their road to Wheeling, without the opportunity ol realizing a substantial and bona-fide subscription upon the part of that r-ity: nor will it construct the road hy any route or under any law denying the Company the right of charging for travel or trade between Baltimore and Wheeling the same rate per mile, in proportion to distance, as betwhen Bal timore and any other point on the Ohio river. Resolved, that a committee, consist ing of five stockholders, be now appoin ted by the Ghairman to take the requis ite measures to present an application to the City Councils for a subscription to the Stock of the Pittsburgh and Con- nellsville Kail lioad Company, and al so to take similar measures to obtain subscriptions from the citizens gener ally for the same purpose; and that the said committee shall be authorised to appoint other committees for a like purpose, to act under their general di rection, and to report their proceedings to the stockholders at as early a day as may be practicable. Resolved that when this meeting ad journ, it adjourns to meet on the 22d day of March next, to receive the re port of the said committee, and to take such further proceedings in the prem ises as to thern may seem expedient. LATER FROM TAMPICO The schooner St. Paul, Capt. Talbot seven days from Tampico, arrived here last evening. Capt. Talbot reports that, on the day he left, a messenger had arrived from the wrecked ship Ondiaka, stating that the volunteers on board, together with Capt. Miller, who, wilh a compa ny of artillery, had been despatched to their relief, were surrounded by a Mexican force from Tuspan, amount ing to 1,000 men. About 200 muskets only being saved from the- wreck, they found it impossible to disperse the en emy. Gen. Patterson, feeling satisfied of the truth of this report, despatched at once 800 cavalry to their assistance. The schooner Ella was also chartered and took on boar! the armament from the United States shr. Nonalo, (Mexi can prize) commanded by Midshipman Marshall D. Smith, likewise 200regu lar and proceeded to the wreck. The result may be looked for by the next arrival from that port. Although the above report of Capt. Talbot, places the volunteers and Capt. Miller's company in rather a perilous position, still it will be seen, taking the worst view of the case, they were on ly surrounded. The report does not say that they were unable to protect themselves, but that they were unable to disperse the enemy. Assuming their position, then, to be even as crit ical as represented, our conviction is, that they managed to keep the enemy at day until the strong additional rein forcement sent down br Gen. Patter son reached them, which would, of course dispel all apprehension for their safety. ... ,...-... Late from Mexico. The New Orleans Delta says: We gather the following items o Mexico news from the Diario of the 7th inst? ' x-- The Indicador of . Vera Cruz of the 24th January, says that on the 5th communication was received from Gen. Carrera at Durango, to the purport that an encounter had taken place at Tamascalitos beyond ' the Passo de Norte, between a small section of the Mexican forces and the advance guard of the Americans, the Mexicans hav ing their commander, Don Jose Ponce de Leon, wounded. Several deputies have proposed in Congress to repeal the law which em powers the government to sell or hy pothecate the property not cultivated called in Mexico dead property but these propositions- were not counts nanced. There is a rumor in Mexico that the American forces had left Victoria, Tamautipass, and, passing by Tula, were on their way to San Luis Potosi. El Indicador contains a communica tion from Srcnta Anna in which he de dares that although he has entirely re nounced the presidency ot the nation, yet he will oppose, with all his strength any attempt to disturb the peaceful stale of things in Sonora, or nny.other State ol the republic by reviving the almost extinguished flames of political convulsions. This refers to the opposition of the people of Sonora to the selling of the church lands to defray the expenses of governmet. A like opposition has been made by the State of Mexico, and several other States. The petition of the State of Mexico against selling the church lands was read in Congress on the 20th January. LI Indicador of the 24th January says that a decree had been published authorizing the government to raise $15,000,000 for the war expenses. I he governor ot the state Durango received a letter dated 4th January, which states that more than a hundred! dragoons of the American army had en tered the town ol rarras. It was subsequently communicated from Durango that ihe Americans who were at Parras had all marched towards Saltillo, leaving only 14 very sick be- ind. It was said that Saltillo was gar risoned oy volunteers, who greatly annoyed the Mexican people. A letter from Venegas of the 1 7th January says that they learn from a person who arrived there the night pre vious, as well as from the letters from Encarnacion on the 16th, that on the 15th January the enemy's forces at Saltillo were composed of 2,400 men, all volunteers, though from their uni form the) appeared to be regulars. That they had searched the churches,! expecting to find arms and munitions concealed there for the use ofthe Mex ican citizens, but they could find noth ing. On the 30th of January the govern or of San Louis Potosi published a de cree, making known to the people that congress had, by their decree, authori zed the government of San Luis to raise, in forty-eight hours, a loan, eith er forced or voluntarv,oi fifty thousand dollars for the immediate expenses of the army. On the 28th of Januaiy a manifesto of the legislature of Vera Cruz was published, inviting all the inhabitants to unite in resisting, with all their means, the invasion of the state by the Ameri can forces. Late letters were received at Mexi co from San Louis Potosi, announcing the departure of Santa Anna towards Tula de Tamaulipas. On the 29 ac counts were received that Santa Anna had already left for that destination. It was reported at Vera Cruz that the Americans had taken Tuspan, but it was generally believed by the Mexi cans. Senor Ladron de Guerra has been appointed minister of justice in the place of Senor Zubrieta, resigned. Se nor Ramirez had consented to take charge of the portfolio of chief secreta ry ofthe government. . The following states have remon strated against the proposition to self the church lands; Mexico, Zanntecas, Queretaro, Durago,Oajaba and Sonora. At 'San Luis, on the 15th January, thn 5th regiment of auxiliaries de San Luis had published their address from the village of Ceritos, denouncing any proposition to treat with the Americans until they had evacuated the country. On the 31st of January an express arrived at Vera Cruz from Mexico bringing the news . that Gen. Minou gained a victory over the Americans near Victoria capturing eight hundred men. According to the late papers from the city ot Mexico, the American for ces had taken possession of Villa de! Paso, in Chihuahua, and continued to extend their forces in that vincinity as in other points, It was believed at Vera Cru? that the city would be at tacked by land front the direction of the river Antigua. A Sardinian brig and a Spanish schooner loaded with provisions, had succeeded .in forcing the blockade and discharging their car goes at Vera Cm, j From the Army Later. It is.withdeep regret, that we have received some confirmation ot the in human murder of Lieut. Richeft of Ohio, by the Mexicans. He was on his way from Monterey to Victoria, bearing despatches from General Scott to General I ay lor, accompanied bv about ten dragoons. He stopped at one of the small tows on the route, and leaving his detachment in the suburbs, entered the town. There he was way laid, lassoed, dragged out, and inhu manly cut to pieces. A letter addres sed to Washington by a gentleman in the army, states that the ten dragoons escaped. With this exception, the following account in the New Orleans Picayune, from the "Mouth ofthe Ritf Grande, Feb. 3," is so tar confirmed by a letter received in Washington. " On the 1 1th January, I met Lieut. Ritchie of the 4th infantry, but then acting with the second dragoons, on his way from Saltillo with ten dragoons to Victoria, bearing important des patches to General Taylor from Gener al. Scott and otheis. It is said these despatches contained the whole plan of the operations in which we are about to engage. While on the road between Monterey and Victoria, but at what place I cannot learn, the party was attacked, young Kitchie was las soed and dragged across a cornfield, nd the despatches carried on! Ihe ten dragoons were either killed or ta ken prisoners. Lieut. Ritchie was one ofthe most distinguished and excellent young officers in the army. His con duct at Palo Alto and Resaca won the the admiration of the army, and he was much esteemed for Lis talents and the excellence of his heart. There is little or no doubt of his death still, whilst there is a shadow of doubt, there is hope." Another poinlul incident also reach es Washington in the same letter to which we reler,and substantially agrees with the following extract from the same letter in the Picayune. " But here is news that will create a deep sensation in the Slates. The following letter reached General Wcth last evening. Of course there is no doubt about its correctness. It is from Captain Chapman ol the army: " 'Saltillo, January 25, 1847. "'I have only time to write a word. Major Borland, of the Arkansas cav alry, with fifty men, and Major Gaines and Cassius M. Clay, with thirty men, were surprised and captured at ln- enrnacion, (about 45 mile beyond Sal tillo,) on the morning of the 23d, by General Minon. He heard Borland was there, and marched from Matehuala with five hundred cavalry, and took them without firing a gun. This is no stampede. Yours truly, W. W. UHAl'MAJN.'" We still trust that there may be some mistake or exaggeration in this report; but it is said in the Washington etter, that they were surprised by the Mexicans, without having ! sentinel,or any adequate precaution adopted for the safety of the detachment. This would, indeed, be a melancholy as well as a reprehensible indiscretion. We wait with anxiety for more authentic as well as detailed statements. Certain it is, howevr, that as the Mexicans are more aroused and more eagerly adopting the guerilla mode of warfare.it becomes the duty of our offi cers and soldiers to be more on their guard, and never move without more strength, and to encamp without more vigilant precautions. Great uncertainty and anxiety hover over the Louisiana volunteers who were shipwrecked about forty miles to the southward of Tampico. There are various rumors about them. One report is, that they have been taken by a large body of Mexicans,( 1,000 strong) another, that they are making their way to Tampico. Gen. Patterson has sent a strong reinforcement to their relief. With these volunteers i3 Col. De Russey, ofthe army, distinguished for his coolness, courage, and skill. His presence inspires confidence in the safety of our soldiers. If he could on ly get his powder dry, and his arms rea'dy for use, they will be able to make their stand against the enemy until thev are reinforced. . MARRIED On Thursday, tht 25th of F.b..
