C. F. JACKSON'S DECLARATION OF : : IHDEPESDEJsiE. i . In Ihb exercise of the rig't reserved to Ihe people of Missouri by lb treaty tinder which the United Slates acoaired Ihe tem porary dominion of the courtt west of the Mississiiji fiver, in trust fir ihe several sovereign States afterwards lo be formed out of ii, that people did, on he twelfth lay of June, one thousand eighj hundred and twenty, ' mutually agree to form and es tablish a free and independent republic by (he name of (he State of Mi'ouri."

Even women, and children of tender age,. Iiaire fallen victims to the unbridled license of hit tinleeiing soldiery. He has avowedly undertaken to make the civil bower subor dinale lo the military; and with tbe despi cable and cowardly design of thus protect ing himself and his accomplices, by binding the consciences of the unhappy victims of his tyranny, he has exacted from peaceful citizens, guilty' of no crime, sn oath to sup port' his detestable Government. To crush out even peaceful and lawful opposition to it, he has forcibly and unconstitutionally suspended the privilege of the writ of ha beat corpus, and abridged the freedom of speech and of the press, by subjecting in nocent citizens to punishment for mere opinion's sake, and by preventing the pub lication of newspapers independent enough lo expose his (reason to liberty These manifold and human wrongs were long submitted to in patience, and almost in humili'y by the people of Missouri, and their authorities. Even when the conduct of the Lincoln Government had culmina ted in an open war upon nsj those authori ties offered to its military commander in Missouri lo refer to the people of the State lor decision he question of our separation from a Government and nation Ihua openly hostile to us. Those authorities relied on the principles consecrated in the declaratioa of Indepe idence of the United States, that to secure the rights of citizens, ''govern ments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that, whenever any form of gov ernment becomes destructive of these ends it is Ihe right of the people to alter or abol ish it, and to institute new government laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as lo them shall seem most likely lo effect their safety and happiness."

OW forefathers gave as one of their grounds of asserting Uieir independ ence, that tbe f&ng of Great Britian had l-abdieated government "here by .declaring us out of his protection, and waging ,war upon us." The people and Government of lhe Northern States of the lata Union have 11 nection heretofore exis'.ing 'between, her and them.-.'... " ; ' .7. . . The Gerieraj Assembly of Missouri,' the recognized and .political department., of her Garverninent, by an act approved May 10th 1861, entitled "An act to authorize the Governor of the Slate of Missouri to sup press rebellion, an-t repel, invasion,' has vested is the Governor, ia respect to the rebellion and invasion now -carried on in Missouri by the Government and people of the Northern States and their allies, the authority '"to take such measures as in his judgment he may deem necessary or prop er to repel such invasion or put down such rebellion." ; Now, tOerefore, By vitjlue of the author ity in me vested by said act, I, Claiborne F. Jackson Governor of Ihe State of Missouri, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of my intentions, and firmly believing that I am herein carry ing in(o effect the will of the People of Missouri, do hereby, in their name, by their authority, and en their behalfj and subject at all times to their free and unbiased con trol, make and publish this provisional Declaration, that by (he acts and people and Government of the United States of Amer ica, the political connection heretofore ex isting between said Stale and the People and Government of Missouri,is, and ought tebe totally dissolved; and that the State of Mitsouri, as a Sovereign, Fret and Inde pendent Republic, has full power to levy war conclude peace, Contract alliances, establish commerce, and do all other acts and things which independent States may of right do. Published and declared at New Madrid, Mo., this filth day of August, in the year of our Lord, eighteen hundred apd sixty-one. Ci-aiBoani F. Jacxso.v, Gov. of Mo., mm ' I A Million and a Quarter per Say. ' We have the authority of theHon.Thsd detis Stevens, Chairman cf the Committee of Ways and Means in the House of Rep resentatives, that the expenses of the Gov ernment are l'otthe rate of one million two hundred and fifty thousand dollars per day.' Weil might Mr. Stephens declare, as he did in urging an amendment to a certain bill, that "he oould not see where the mon ey was to come from." We think ihis difficulty of the Chairman of ilia "Wave and Means" i"!nmmitt n not at all confined to himself or to the Com- miitee, but that it is largely shared by the people throughout Ihe country. It may be that the Government paper money tn be is sued may answer the purpose of cheating the proposed deficiency, but the magnitude I' the scale upon which our public expen- dilores are going forward is well calculated to arouse the publio attention, and lead to reflec' ion upon the burdens which it must impose iip.m ihe people. If there was a reasonable probability that the war expenses would be brought to a close within any period near at hand, their burdens would be more tojerabl, but with the expenditure, according to Mr. Stevens' estimate, of $456,250,000 during the first year or lhe war, we shall have but just be gun to feel its oppressive bearing upon the country. A million and a quarter per day, will rapidly rell up a publio debt, to ,pay the interest of which will require a tax up on property and upon inccmes, to which the law Just enacted by Congress will bear but a faint proportion. There are people who believe in prose cuting the war, even .through a period of twenty years, if the South cannot be soon er subjugated. This would impose a pub lic debt of about ten thousand millians; a v. . And here it may not be amiss to remind our readers that Wbeu -some two months ago we estimated (he expenses of the war not less then $200,000,000 per annum, (we had no doubt at the time that the es timate was too low,) it was pronounced a gross exaggeration by some of the Repub lican psners, which said . it was evidently designed to discourage the prosecution of tne war. now their own officer places the n jurea at more than double the amount.
