ready to do his bidding on pain of forfeiting | tlio

will unable him, to an immense extent, to
control the action of the representatives of
the people. This is obviously the tendency
and effect of this new feature introduced into
the government of the Confederacy bv tbe \j
sages oflMontgornery whatever may be said !
to the contrary. Jit is a mere evasion to say
that it is introduced merely to enable the
Heads of'Department to explain their mea
sures. The cabinet officers become by this
English custom, heretofore unknown in any
system of American government, Senators
and Representatives, not deriving their privi
leges as such from the people, but enjoying
their prerogatives by appointment and
courtesy conferred by the servants of the
people. Perhaps it may be said that they
have not the right of voting. The right of
voting is not expressly given; neither is it
expressly withheld; and it is not quite clear
that they might not claim the right of voting
ns incidental to the right of discussing. But
concede that they have no right to vote, still
they have scat* in both bouses of Congress.
They arc alternately Senators and members ]
of the Lower House. Each secretary may
when bis own measures are under considera
tion, take bis seat in the Senate, pariiclpate
in debate as long as lie thinks proper, then
withdraw and betake himself to tbe ball of
tbe BtfCtic Jr Representative nwrt Join In itiA ^
debate there also ad libitum. This right to
a seat in both Ilou-ies compensates the want
of a vote, and this privilege of debating in
j both Houses, gives him to all intents and
! purposes, as much influence in support ot his
j own measures, which he wiil always be anx

of Congress; and, with his outside power and
' appliances, a great deal more.
But there is a redeeming rule iu the En
glioli system in regard to the right accorded
to Ministers to support their measures in the
parliament, -which seems to have been en
tirely excluded by the law givers of the Con
federacy. If a ministry fail to carry its
measures through, the failure is fatal to its
longer continuance in office. Whyn a
measure of the ministry falls through in the
[| ou8e of Commons, it is a signal for
' ro i n j stcrs | 0 re »ign their offices and give
j ^ t0 (he inJ , ugHra tion of a different poli
cy. But, by the Montgomery Constitution,
the heads of departments might fail in one
set of bad measures and, without losing (heir
offices, introduce a worse set the next day,
and be heard in the advocacy of them.
9||We can view this strenge innovation upon
American Constitutional law, in no other
light than as an insidious filching-of power
from the people to increase the power of (be

this sort in the Montgomery Constitutif

would do us no harm to ponder well the rea

The co-operationists or Anti secessionists
may now with some propriety be termed
"submissionists" as they were to a man, in
every Stale of the Confederacy strongly in
favor of the submission of the new govern
ment to the people for their approval or re
sted it.
\j ec f[ on . wliile their opponents as vigorously
*iave yet to see the correction of tbe miss
tatements in regard to South Carolina in the
Submission press. We give-them another
chance to correct their statement about the
restrictions upon voting. An election lay
was published in the Charleston Mercury,
that the judges could know all its provisions:
Every free white man, of the age of twen
ty-one years, (paupers and non-commissioned
officers and privates of the United States
Army excepted,) who hath been a citizen and
resideut of this State two years previous to
tie day ol election, and who lias a freehold
of Fifty acres of land or a town lot, of which
he lias been legally seized and possessed at
least six months before such an election; or,
not having any such freehold or toten lot,
hath been resident in the Election District in
which he offers to give his vote, before the
election, six months be shall have a right to
] vote in tlie Election District in which ,be
holds such propei ty or residence.— Memphis
Albeit, ours is no "Submission press," other
wise than as being in favor of submitting con
stituions and secession ordinances to tbe vote
given.-Tbe law above staled, gives to a man
who owns a fifty acre freehold or a town lot in
half a dozen differ, nt election districts, the
right of voting half a dozen times; one vote in
each district in which he owns a fifty,acre free
hold, or a town lot. The man not having the
fifty acre freehold or the town lot can vote only
once, and that where he has six months resi
dence in the Election District «and two years
residence in the State.—Will the Avalanche
advise us whether the term "free while man"
osej in the law it quotes, is understood to
include the classswhiah in South Carolina is
termed "mean white people" ? and in this
connexion, we wold enquire further, whether
whipping cropping and branding of free,
white persons «»re still used in South Carolina,
as punishments for criminal offences !
A Depiokable Case of Shooting in Car
roll Parish. —"We learn from a private
source, that on Thursday night last, in l!io
town of Lake Providence, La , Mr. Thomas
C. Scarborough a citizen of that place, was
shot and doubtless killed by Mr. Abram Bass,
a planter living a short distance below on the
river. Tbe circumstances of tbe shooting
were deplorable and shocking in the extreme.
It seems that Mr. Bass, while under the in
fluence of intoxication, ordered his wife to
leave their common home, she did so, and
went to the house of Mr. Scarborough, one
of her husband's most intimate friends.
Bass subsequently proceeded, at night, to
'.hé same hdbsc, nnd calbng for Mr. Scar-
borough, demanded to know if the latter
was "harboring his wife," Some words en-
sued, during which a pistol went tfi acci-
dently in Mr. B.'s pocket. Mr. Scarborough
then turned to go into the house, with the
remark that if Mr. B. would wait, ho would
bring a candle and conduct him to his wife's
room. It would seem that about this mo-
ment Mr. Bass drew a pistol and shot at Mr.
