AMERICAN CHARACTER.
The Knropcan opinion of the Americans
as a people has never been very flattering or
well defined. Onr countrymen hare more
often been the Subject of coarse caricature
than friendly comment. Foreign tourists
hare proverbially made us the object of their
attempted satire; and ridicule has exhausted
its resources from the feeble gonip of Troi
Lone to the brilliant conceptions of Dickkm
at our expense. Tho ideal American in
England Is tho result of cockney ignorance,
and the lank-limbed, sharp-risaged Jonathan
that figures in tho cartoons of Punch, We
could afford to laugh at the insular or conti
nental misconception of us, as we were gct
ting on Tcry well, and had rattier confirmed
Jalcas of our own Importance, and did not dis
count ourselves at home.
The American character has never been
fully developed, its points never brought
out, its elements called Into being, or Its ca
pacity tested, until the late war. We had been
noted for bargains, for invention, for commcr-
clal genius, for a plethora of eloquence, and for
everything requiring smartness and activity
We were unri ailed In all the hazards ofadren-
ture, and successfully competed in tho fields
of active labor. Hut which was the ruling
race hi this nation tho northerner or the
bou theme r f Which was the most essentially
American; which had tho greatest force of
character; which had the eternal ideas, could
only be worked out in tho great furnace of
affliction and the fiery crucible of civil war.
We think these questions arc now settled,
both at home and abroad. What the a crage
of manhood Is in any nation depends upon
tho opportunities afforded its citizens fur cul
ture, the general enlightenment with which
they are surrounded, and tho type of excel
lence held up for example. This war has
not only settled that the power of numbers
and the victory were with the North, but
that the people educated under free institu
tions have received from those institutions
the most positive characteristics, and are to
Impress tho future and shape the destiny of
this country, and fix the tjpe of our race for
all coming time.
Freo Institutions made the North. Its
character was no more manly, warlike or
heroic than that of the South. Both averaged
the same. But the free sj stein, and unbarred
chances of progress prevalent in tho North,
made more of Its character, produced its su
periority of numbers, its superiority of re
sources, and its ultimate success Nearly all
our legations abroad arc the representatives
of free institutions. The old world kno us
now only through them Those institutions,
since the return of peace, aro extended to
every Jbtatc, and will have their effect in
moulding tho character of the South It
can be said, In truth, that one phase of Ameri
can character is rapidly passing away. No
better commentary on this fact is possible
than the difference in the position and influ
ence of two Americans now m London
GxonoK Pea bo or, a natho of Massachu
setts, with tho sunple advantages of a New
England education, and the indomitable
will and energy which that people bequeaths
to its children, tried his fortune In England
lie amassed wealth; endowed his native
town with legacies ; generously contributed
to the cause of his country while at war ; and
culminated an honorable career by founding
the most munificent chanty for the poor of
London of which there is any record. About
to return to his native land, the Queen of
England extends to him the highest compli
ment within her power; and tho KnglUh
press can scarce find words sufficient to do
him honor. He comes back to America with
the special honors of royalty, the love or
the poor, and tho respect of all Britain as

blood' of that fumed Commonwealth lie
was a pure specimen of the peculiar institu
tion. He bad all the arrogance, Bclf-coinpla-cency,
and contempt for the lower orders
that marked the F. F. V.'s of the olden
time. As a citizen ho was courtly and
aristocratic. As a Senator he was haughty
and imperious ; as a politician illiberal and
proscnptUe He was sent abroad to repre
eent the Southern Confederacy at St James.
At first ho was somewhat. by tho snobs
and the nobility, who, naturally taking the
Bide of oppression, sympathized with the
South He soon lo?t thccharuUcrof a Hon,
and dropped into profound contempt There
ho is to-day ; the confederacy of which he was
the psuedo ambassador is " like the baseless
fabric of a vision," the South, which to him
was an idol, has been shattered to pieces
"Jike a potter's vessel," and the institution
with which It was his pride to be associated,
and around which ho threw the sanction of
divinity Is so utterly destroj cd that no estige

English ancestors ; but tho capital which he

TIIE PAHIN IMPOSITION.
As an illustration of tho interest taken in
thU subject by tho people, It may be slated
inai over rorty thousand copies of the elo
quent and national speech of Mr. Has ha, in
the House of Representatives, have been
called for by the public. The closing words,
"Jn the wise economy of nations, ideas are
better than blows and brains better than
blood," should be accepted as the motto of
this great Industrial era.
In the debates on the IMh, Mr, Raymond
spoke to the point on the necessity of the
scientific inquiry, and made some capital ob
servations on the object and meaning of the
Exhibition. Ho touched on some Important
truths Jn few words, perhaps too few. Un
doubtedly "Labor and liberty" arc coming
to govern this earth, and they aro making
enormous strides to power. The Industrial
movements of the age are silently lifting the
people to power in all directions. Indeed,
the corablnatfon of science and labor is anew
power In the world stronger than armies, and
It will surely rule.
Wages are rising every day everywhere,
in spite of the combinations of capital, laws,
or rulers to keep them down, and wages are
wealth, knowledge, and power to tho people;
poverty Is ignorance and servitude.
America, of all countries, should lend a
hand to these great Industrial movements.
They are working a peaceful and permanent
revolution, and if we havo a mission on earth
outside of our borders It Is to aid in elevating
industry to consideration, knowledge, and
dignity, for that alone can give freedom to
man.
Rulers who lend themselves to this exhibi
tion show that they know how to retain
authority, but to suppose they originated
it to honor themselves would be an error.
In their hearts they do not like it; they fear
it; but quick minds make haste to fall In with
these great industrial movements and en
deavor to lead them, localise they perceive
in them the premonitions of the coming
power of labor which cannot be successfully
resitted.
Many events which contribute to the
progress of civilization originate in the de
signs of men and submit to their guidance,
but others cannot be so readily traced to
that origin; yet they come sweeping on with
ponderous force, regardless of obstacles.
and finally change tho form and structure of
society. These we ascribe to Providence.
ill Congress continue to ignore the true
nature and importance of these great Indus
trial movements, and count out a few dollars
stingily In aid of them, as if doubtful and
half ashamed to be there and half ashamed
to be abscntl Is this sort of action a proper
expression of tho true Interests of the United
States, or is it a correct measure of the in
telligence of the American people of to-day?
If so, the public must revise its opinion, for
at present the world estimates us by a higher
standard
Let us not bo deterred by recollections of
tho contumely which of late has been show
ered upon us in our affliction, that would be
yielding to the eneraj; but rather let us be
fctimulated by the reflection that prosperity
excites jealous) , and rising greatness aw akens
fear It is for us to disregard inferior and
transient considerations of this kind, and to
be present on this important occasion with
the evidences and elements of our future.
Let tho world see us as wo are and judge us
as it may.
e have much to gain, but nothing to
fear except tho vanity which shrinks from
investigation, and the conceit which u fuses
to h am When two ought to meet, and the
mountain cannot move, is H notwise to goto

If anything, tbe tone of Ibis one Is mora quiet and

tbe atmosphere of that variety aeen no where else

Mr Saolsburr moved to amend hvtlrtltn nt
tbt aevtnth section, which Is as follows
AiulU tt further tnatttd. That If tht State court
shall, notwithstanding tht performance of all things
required for tbt removal of tht case to-tho circuit
court aforesaid, proceed further In said ciuie or
froiocnllon before aald certificate Is produced, then
n that case all such further proceedings shall bt
void and of none effecti and all parties, Judges,
officers, and other persons thenceforth proceeding
thereunder or by color thereof, shall be liable In
damages therefor to the party aggrieved to be re
covered by action in a court or tbt Statt having
proper Jurisdiction, or la a circuit court or tht
United Stales for tbe district In which such further
proceedings may nave been bad, or where tbe party,
officer, or other person so offending shall bo found,
and upon a recovery of damages In either court the
parties plaintiff shall be entitled to double costs
Mr Saulsbury said this section was plainly un
constitutional, and if he was a Judge of a court In
his State be should not obey It.
Mr Clsrk said bt ahould not baTt mad ht fur.
ther remarka upon thla bill but for tbo character of
the utterances of tbe Senator from Delaware, Mr
Saulsbury They had had enough of this kind of
lata lot oen at or una used too same languagt
when the Civil Blghta hill waa passed, and It was
time that rebellion, which had been crushed out
side, should cease its volet in thla Chamber Tht
tnator haa aeen proper to rise here and repent
again and again that be will oppose the authority
of the Government
Mr Saulsbury said ht had merely Riven btsorln
Ion that this section was unconstitutional) ht had
expressed no sentiments of rebellion, no intention
of resisting tbe authority of tbe Government, and
be asked by what right tbe Senator from New
Hampshire Mr Clark) took upon himself to lecture
Senators on this floor for their opinions. There
was nothing In that Se,nator,morally,lntellcatuBlly,
or physically that gave him a right to talk In such
a manner
Mr Clark said be had no wish lo lecture tho
cenaior, ami did not claim any superiority, mor
ally, Intellectually, or physically, over any ont
but bo lovtd bla country, and would stand by It
against all assailants Ho thought It waa time
that all should know that tbe power of the Federal
Government was supreme, and must be obeyod
Mr. Saulsbury aald he bad not supposed that
any mind here was so obtuse as to charge t man
with being rebellious because he stated his opinion
that a law waa In violation of tbe Constitution,
The tlmt had gone by when men wert to bo
charged with disloyalty merely because be hap
penel to disagree with partyoplnlons ile did not
intend to submit to any such aspersions upon hla
mitlva, and be desired tht Senator from Ntw
Hampshire to be more careful In tht future
Mr. Clark said he meant nothing disrespectful to
the Senator from Delaware, but be certainly bad
nothing to take back Ht should characterlit
things just as they occurred to blm
Mr Hendricks was unablt to aeo any thing In
the remarka of tbe Senator from Delaware to call
forth such a response from tbe Senator from New
Hampshire Tbe Scnatir from Delaware was of
ine opinion mat tne section was unconstitutional,
and he (Mr II ) entertained tht samt opinion. Ht
did not think that a Judge should bt subjsct to
punishment beoaust he acted acoordlog to consci
entious convictions of hla duty. He desired to
know of the Senator from New Hampshire what
necessity there was for this provision
Mr Wilson said there were three thousand oases
pending against officers of the Government for acta
dona in the discharge of their dntv In iHKtt
courts of Kentucky
Air liars; aatd tuet one or these S'ate courts had
refuse 1 to admit in justification orders from supt
rior officers of tbo Union army, but accepted them
when from tbe rebel army. Too legislature of Ken
tucky had DOSSel a law oroteetlinr mhul nfflara
from the consequences of acts dooe by them during
tbo war, aod when a resolution was introduced to
extend tho samt protection to Union officers it was
voiea aown
Mr Doollttlt would suggest a substitute to the
Senator from Delaware, which bo thought would
meet bis views Ho would move to strike out the
word "Judges" In tbe 4th section It certainty Is
a novel com to punish a judge for refusing to Issue
a writ or decide upon a question actually before
blm
Mr. Trumbull said It was not a novel thing to
punish a Ju Ige in such eases There were both btate
and federal laws providing fur it Mr Trumbull
read from Chancellor Kent and other authorities
to support his position
Mr Doolittleaald theSenator from Illinois, (Mr
Trumbull,) had set down with an Idea that bis ar
gument wssconcluslre, but he had not real j touched
upon the point adranoed by him (Mr D ) He (Mr
D ) dldiuslst that it was a novel proceeding to hold
a judge responsible for a judicial act
Mr Trumbull aald the Senator from Wisconsin
had once told a story of a jusl'co of the peace to
whom after rendering a decision, on attorney ha I
read from Blaobston a Commentary a dlflerent
ruling upon a similar case Tht justice wlched to
know whether the attorney desired to mako Mm
out lo tbt wrong 'Ol), no," said tho attorney;
' but I only wlihed to show what an old fool Blaok
stone was ' i ell, Mr President, I will read from
Chanoeltcr Kent to show that Judges have been
punlshtd for judicial acts, not that I exect
lo chtnge the opinion of the Senator from U Uon
sin, Mr Doollttle but only to show what a fool
Chancellor Kent was laughter Mr V then
cited tbe case alluded to by him
Mr Cowan said that tht fact that this was a
Government of delegated powers seemed to bt en
tlrely lost sight of Gentlemen come here who,
when reminded of this fact, snickered and laughed
Well, they had a right to Uo this There wtfnotb
Ing la the Constitution to prevent a man from
making fool of himself) but U was asolemn thing
after taking an oath to support the Constitution
to take the ground that was now adranoed,
Tht discussion was further continued by Messrs
Howard, Doolittle, and Johnson
Mr Johnson said perhaps It may bev less objec
tionable to amend tht act as auggested by the Sen
otor from Wlsoonsln, but be knew of no reason why
a judge should not be punished as well as a subor
dinate officer He (Mr J believed In the propriety

Mr Doollttle again advocated tht exclusion of

Tht question waa then taken on tht amendment
or Mr Doollttle) whloh wat disagreed to.
Tho amendment or Mr Saulsbury, striking out
tht fourth section, was then disagreed to
Mr Edmunds offered an amendment, to follow tht
end of tht first section, making It the duty of tht
Secretary or War, In aoy suits or proaecutlons com.
Ing within tht provisions of this act, to carry on
tht same at tbe expense of tht United States, and
to Indemnify Jht plaintiffs or respondents for all
costs.
Mr Sherman fold this would be rather an ex
pensive operation for tht United Slates
Mr Williams aald tbe effect of this amendment
would be to encourage litigation. There would
also bo danger of oottusion between the plaintiff and
defendant
After soma dtsouiston, tht amendment was dis
agreed to
Mr. II we offered an amendment making It the
daty of tbt Attorney General and the several
United Stales district attorneys, In all oases to
which this act applies, to defend such cases at tbe

Mr Doollttle offered an amendment that In such
States and Territories where martial law did not

such order shall bt prima facta a defense, provided
that It was not maliciously or oppressively done.
The question waa then taken on tne amendment
of Mr Howe, which was disagreed to.

plained that the object of the bill was to make some
provision for tbt declining years of an aged patriot
who had planted the American flaa In frontyof his
house In Marjland and whtn tht same was torn
down by ont of the rebel raiders under Gltmor had
shot tho raider dead, In consequence of which hla
houso and all Its contents bad been destroyed, and
be himself driven forth a homeless and penniless
wanderer. In this war tht old man had lost all
he had In tbo world, amounting to between seven
and eight thousand dollars Ihe committee were
In the habit of rejecting, as a general rule, all
claims for losses resulting from tbt war, but they
considered this a cast of peculiar merit and hard
ship, and in tbe bill just reported proposed not to
reimburse the claimant for bla lose, but aim ply to
allow biro, during bis few remaining years, tbe
small pension of 4121 CO per annum, payable stml
annually, that being the interest of the amount of
his Iom Mr. Ward said bt thought It tbt doty of
this House to testify In this practical manner Its

aspetob, In which ht said he was lick of spoeeh
maklng, and longed to sea tko boys In tho field Ha
never opened his lips that ht did net feel somethlnr
like a guilty thing He added.
" Wo are going to cany tho war Into Iht enemy's
camp. Wo art going to fight England 2,000 nllos
from her bast where there aro Fngllsh laws, Eng
lish msglstrates, and EortWh hate of Ireland, and
no power can stop us. When I say this I mean It
for tht American Government. I know that It will
bo perfeetly neutral. Wo are not going to go on tht
border and hefd sham convention, saying to tha
enemy, Look out for jour eye, because wt aro ro
Ing to hit you there Wo ean eroas tht border
silently, and the United States troops will rush down
when wt art across, to look after us and bid us

Tbo hit at tht Ea (port netting, whtrt Cana

this assurance will you not sustain us T Then If
yon do, I pledge you that that flag shall never

Now let tht Government step In and "bag" Col.
