The Citizen and Politics.
Every citizen in this country should study
politics. It should be taught in our schools,
begianing with the history of the settlement of
this .country and coming down to the Atneri
. can Revolution, and the system of govemnient
adopted by our fathers, and since amended
' from time to time. - Liberty of speech, liberty
""'of conscience, and liberty f the press, stand
out in hold relief upon the CIIARTER of onr
Jilierties. To secure these, as well as personal
liberty, personal . safety, and the security of
private property, is the great design of gov
ernment; and, in the history of the world, uo
system has ever been devised by the .wisdom
of man, or accorded to him by the blessings of
Heaven, equal to our system of government.
It is deserving of study, and it must be studied
to be properly understood. In it are unfolded
the rights of the citizen, and the duty and
powers of the magistrate. Annually the citi
zen is called upon to vote for officers consti
tuting a portion of government; biennially he
votes for another set of officers; triennially for
yet another set; and every fourth year he votes
for the Chief Magistrate of the Union so that
his interest in the government is constantly
kept alive, and the Same of his patriotism is
always kept burning. This is as it shold be;
and this also, shows how necessary it is th5t
every citizen should be acquainted with the
theory as well as the practice of our govern
ment. . -
Its theory is truly admirable. We have thirty-one
distinct sovereignties, composing and
forming one grand sovereignty, or Union, of
all, under one bound, the Constitution of the
United States. Every one of the sovereign
ties or States has its Constitution, differing in
form, but agreeing in substance, ! and protec
ting and preserving the life, liberty and prop
erty of the citizen. In each constitution, pro
vision is made for the election of officers of
the General Government, members of Con
gress, both the house of Representatives and
the Senate of the United States; we have the
powers delegated by the people to the national
government, with some restrictions upon the
State Powers,, and a general reservatibn. to the
people pf all powers not expressly, or by ne
cessary implication, granted hy '. them, to the
Government of the United States so that, as
in the natural, so as - in the political world, we
have the prinerplesof attraction and repulsion
at workf" Each Stat eV.may .be said to. revolve
around the Union tonmwn center; attrac
ted thereto, like the planets to the sun in the
solar system, and repelled therefrom, lest they
approach too near -and thereby destroy the
eqnilibriunvpf the system. JJ. V. ,' .'".''f,
The" State Government sbmetime.s encroach
es upon the province - of the ' General Govern
ment, as when; the United States Marshal is
bt ought before the State courts for an alleged
breach of official duty, or oppressive exercisa
of power. The United States courts will pro
tect and have protected : their officers. : So,
also, when any of the States have passed a"
Bankrupt Law, whilst a niUionalBankrr.pt Law
was in force. This being "prohibited by the
Constitution of the United Statesj in order to
prevent the conflict of jurisdiction on ques
tions arising under the hi ws. it is necessary,
for the peace of the community and the admir
ation of justice, that the act of Congress should
be. enforced, and the State law declared to be
unconstitutional. This has been done in sev
eral instances--not only-in relation to Bank
rupt laws, but to other laws on our Statute
Books. Consistently, therefore, with the an
alogy adverted to, and to preserve the harmo
ny of the system, the' national government
should repel any such encroachments upon its
province, as the State legislature would repel
and' clear encroachment upon Us exchisire
powers. -
There is one feature in our system of gov
ernment which has caused a good deal of
trouble and which has, time and again, illustra
ted the remark about attraction and repulsion:
it is, that of Slavery, and the Fugitive Slave
Law. Some of the States are disposed to carry
that law into effect, whilst other States are
differently disposed. Here is practical attrac
tion and repulsion. The existence of slavery
amongst us is undoubtedly an exception to the
general rule that: is, -liberty; and when the
different States of the Old Thirteen, began to
liberate their slaves, and thus become free
States, the rest of the States, known as slave
States, became alarmed, lest the balance of
power would be lost to them, . and "Virginia
would cease to be the "Old Dominion," as
she was called, from the fact of her furnishing
so many Presidents. The multiplication of
free Staaes has, therefore, always been a source
of political irritation and disturbance in the
South, because, in the Senate of the United
States, every State, whether large or small,
is equal in power and in the number of its
representatives, each State having two Sena.-i
tors. . ('.- '
"When in 1820, the Territory of Missouri
knocked at the doors of Congress, and asked
admission into the family of States, as one of
their number, the great and agitating ques
tion arose as to the tcrnrti of her admission:
whether she should be admitted as a free State
or a slave Stato We all know how that ques
tion was settled, and that it was called the
Missouri Compromise, allowing slavery within
what was the North-Western territory, up to
the line of SG deg. 30 min. North latitude, and
prohibiting it North of that line. This com
promise was the result of wise and patriotic
counsels; the peace and integrity of the Union
were preserved by it and it continued unbro
ken for a period of thirty-three years! Re
cently, however, that compromise has been
broken, by an act of Congress, passed at the
session, familiary known as the Nebraska and
Kansas Bill, which allows slavery to be intro
duced within either of those territories, if the
citizens thereof shall decide in favor of it by
their votes. It must be observed, by the way,
that almost all of the two territories lies North
of 36 deg. 30. min., and but for this late act of
Congress, slavery would have been forever
shut out from their limits!
The advocates of that law concealed their
designs under the cover of popular sovereign
ty, and the doctrine that all governments
should be founded on the will of the majority
alleging at the same time, their belief that it
was impossible for slavery ever to get there,
whilst they were getting ready to remove tith
er with their slaves and occupy the territories!
They forgot the favorite saying of the lamen
ted Calhoun, "masterly inactivity," and the
consequence is. that emigration societies have
been formed for the purpose of settling both
territories with a free population, from home
and abroad; they are fast filling up with this
kind of a population, to the great annoyance
of Douglass and others, slaveholders, whose
designs are thus likely to be frustrated.
On this question millions of dollars of the
national treasury have been wasted, and a
very great excitement was produced and kept
up for months in Congress. The course taken
by the members of Congress from the North,
who voted for the bill, has been generally re
pudiated by their constituents, whilst that of
those who voted against it has been approved.
Such is part of the practical working of our
system. Tho ambition and avarico of the
great demagogue and his friends has disturbed
the harmony of the community from that time
to this; and the passage of that bill has" so
exasperated the people of the extreme North
and West, that they will most probably keep
np the agitation in Congress for years, and
strive hard to get the fugitive slave law re
pealed, which was one of the compromics of
ISoO another exciting period iu our history,
when California was admitted as a free State.
Itis lamentable that in this country, with a
Constitution designed to establish a more per
fect union and ensure domestic tranquility it.
is lamentable, we say, that domestic tranquil
ity is of so little account with ambicious po
litical tricksters; that it is disturbed by them
every three or four years by this miserable
question of slavery, raised by them to sell their
negroes, or to become Presidents .f tha United
States! We have always believed, and still do
believe, that there 3s no remedy for this evil
but the removal of the colored people out of
the country, and colonizing them "either on
the shores of Africa, or elsewhere. ' Hence
we must oppose the existence of slavery in this
country. Berks Covvfy Prcs.

those who read the serial so promptly issued every
week by Dickens, with thoughtful appreciation,
know how to prize it, "Household lords'' is a
modern journal for the people, devoted to common
subjects, uncommonly treated, excellent in style,
in genius, in manner, and wonderfully fertile in
subject. The pieces are the right length; they
exhibit wonderful variety and are attuned to a
harmonious key and remarkable unity . of effect.
For the money, there is not the caual of "'House
