Weekly Standard (Newspaper) - April 6, 1864, Raleigh, North Carolina V and BROWN'S from the Message of Gov. lo the Legislature of in extra March 1864. THK Tne late action of the Congress of the to States upon the subject of the currency has further legislation necessary in thia State ipon that It cannot be denied that this ict has seriously embarrassed the financial system if this and has shaken the confidence oi our in either the justice of the late Congress or hts competency to manage our financial Probably the history of the past furnishes few more instances of unsound policy combined bad The government issues Treasury note lor and binds itself two years after ti treaty of peace between the Confederate States and Ihe United to pay the bearer that sum and stipulates upon the face of the it is able in Confederate stocks or and re- in payment of all public dues except export The Congress while tho war is still passes a statute this shall be funded in about forty days or one third of it shall be and that a tax often per cent a month shall be paid for it after that time by the and it shall no longer be receivable in payment of and if it is not funded by the 1st of the whole debt is Did the holder take the note with any such Was this the and is this the way the is to keep its faith If we get rid of the old issues in this what guaranty do we give for better in the redemption of the next many of the notes have the express promise on their that they shall be in eight per cent When The plain import and BO understood by all at the of their that it may be done at any the day fixed on the face of the note for its With what semblance of does the government before that time compel the holder to receive a four per or lose the whole debt and what better is this repudiation V When was it ever before attempted by any to compel the funding of almost the entire paper currency of a amounting to seven or eight hundred mil lions of in forty days This is certainly a new chapter in The country imposition of a and all patriotic citizens were prepared to pay it fully at any reasonable but repudiation and bad faith were not and the authors of it can not be held The expiring Congress took the precaution to discuss this measure in secret so that the individual ace of the representative could not roach his and none could be annoyed during its consideration by the murmurs of public probation being echoed back into tho Legislative And to make they fixed the day for tbe assembling of their successors at a time too late to remedy the evil or afford quate redress for the These secret sessions of Congress a- blighting curse to the They are used as a convenient mode of up from tho people or expressions of their representatives as will not bear investigation in tho light of day Al most every act of of or of bud has been brought forth and in secret If I mistake not the British Parliament never discussed a single measure in cret session during thc whole period of the Crimean But if it is to discuss a few tant such as may relate to the movement of in secret it Hoes not follow that discussions of questions pertaining to the the suspension of the writ of and the should all be conducted m cret The people should require ail satti measures to be discussed with open and the press the liberty of i courting aul criticising thc acts of our public In way the reflection of the popular will back n the would generally cause the unsound measures as those which are fastened upon the country in defiance of tho ill of the But dismissing the past and looking to the e inquiry presented for our consideration is how all the State authorities act in the management of e finances of the State As notes constitute the currency of the the State has been obliged to pay em and she must do as long they remain the only circulating The resent Legislature bas very wisely adopted the in the present depreciated condition of the of collecting by taxation a sufficient sum to pay the current appropriations of he State instead of adding them to debt of the State to be paid in future upon the old If the Slate issues her own bonds and uts them upon the or if she issues her own notes a future day in her she adds the amount so issued to her anent and defeats the policy djf as she as her own bonds or would be and could not bo redeemed with the Confederate notes when received into her If the State receives in payment of taxes the Confederate treasury they will be re- in amount one-third by act of Congress after rst of April and the State receiving them at ar pays a Confederate tax of per upon all that pass through her This of cannot be submitted The repudiation policy of seems to have left us but one and that is o receive and out only such issues of irate as under the act of Congress pass at the deduction of 88 on any other per ut as we are obliged have funds before the time hen the new

which de- clares person shall be held to answer for a or otherwise infamous crime unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand except in cases ing m the land or naval f or in the militia when in

is ble for Congress by to confer upon the President the right to exercise powers of ex- pressly forbidden to him by the Any effort on the part of ess to do is but an attempt to revive the odious practice of ordering political or issuing letters fa cachet by royal prerogative so long since renounced by our English ancestors and the denial of the right of the judiciary to investigate such and

which both English and cal purposes by the until it was finally ished by act of of 16th Chai lus Ibo which went into operation on the of August 1641. This act has ever since been as one of tho great bulwarks of English liberty and as it was passed by the English Parliament to secure our English ancestors against the very same of arbitrary which the late act of Congress is intended to authorize the President to 1 append a copy of it to this with the same and which are used in the printed the book from which it is It will be seen that the 6ourt of 4k which was the instrument in the hands of the lish King for investigating his illegal arrests and carrying out his arbitrary was much more on account of the learning and ability of. its than the Confederate Star-Chamber or court of which the act of Congress gives the President power to to appoint to investigate his illegal I am aware of no instance in which the British King has ordered the arrest of any person in civil in any other than by judicial issued by tho established the realm or in which he has or attempted to suspend the privileges of the writ of sinro ihe of Rights and ucfc of settlement parsed iu To attempt this in 1864, would cost the reigning Queen no less price than her The only suspension of the privileges of the writ of habeas corpus known to our arid compatible with the provisions already goes to the simple extent of preventing the release under it of persons whose arrests have been ordered under constitutional warrants from judicial To this extent the Constitution allows the suspension in case of in order that the accused may be and safely held for but Congress has no right under pretext of ing to authorize tho President to make illegal arrests prohibited by the and when Congress bas attempted to confer such ers on the if he should such it would be the imperative duty of the who have solemnly sworn to support tho to disregard unconstitutional and grant relief to persons gally imprisoned and it would be the duty of tbe Legislative and Executive departments of the States to sustain and protect the judiciary in the discharge of this By an examination of the act of Congress now under it will be seen that it is not an act to suspend the privilege of the writ of corpus in case of warrants issued by judicial ity but the of the act seems to be to authorize the President to issue warrants ported by neither oath nor affirmation and to make arrests of persons not in military upon charges of a nature for in the judicial tribunals and to prevent the Courts 1rom inquiring into such or granting against such illegal usurpations of which are in and palpable violation of the The act enumerates more twenty different causes
