Is there no Trust for them must All the soil whose genial repels not the carolinian Asho would seek a Homo where his sons Asho could not May labor with Honor and Solf respect be forbidden him if be would go where Sla very Sciull hang no longer like a Mili Stone around his almost drowned to ultimate Power of judging of infractions of would surround himself Nith those Privily the Federal Constitution with Tho right of secession and have surrounded the subject with such a phosphorescence of metaphysics that i perhaps Havo been led into the bog. Yot Hope t have apprehended Tho Ibrom of the i have no time or. Chairman to under take to expose the unconstitutional charac Ter and Tho anarchical and anti Republican tendency of the general theory nor can i re is a strange inconsistency in denying attempt to describe Tho scarce averted civil Power to govern for while they Are War the suspension of the bloody strife and Tho angry future the fruits of its actun.1 application but i must Content myself with vowing my adherence to that construction of the Constitution while it reserves to the states and Tho peo ple in full and unabated sovereignty every Power not Dale gated to the Federal government supreme and As far As possible in dependent of the states which makes Tho Constitution an instrument of government this clause refers territory Only As land or soil the subject inc. It. Granting of Power to a Deputy cannot always re quires Tho principal. It seems to me also that the appoint ment of a governor to Rule Over and regu late a territory supposes some authority Akin to sovereignty and that neither sus Pended nor in especially is it so when to is claimed to be almost absolute when his certificate is final and conclusive of the Irga Lity of a pretend election so much so As to legalize invasion and con quest so much so that neither the people of the territory nor Congress can go to of private property. This unusual use of Tho word appears it is said from the con text locate associated Divitti the words to dispose and other if editing a paper out editor of to Pipor published at Lake Superior after having been without a mail three weeks says should the mail not arrive this week to shall make our regular tues Day for this number was ,.rande up from an old Magazine and a religious almanac of last year and so Long a this material holds out we shall to Independent of the these Woro the Only words the inference might be legitimate but As connected with Tho phrase to make All Noo Alful rules and the words rules regulations and to regulate being the very words used in Othor parts of the instrument As Confer ring legislative Power Tho inference is Clor by routed. Here then Aro two sorts of phrases connected with the word one of which applies to private property and the other to the term in its Ordinary May in not be used in. Both rather than thus suppose its significance to be thus entirely changed is it not More reasonable to believe that it was used at least in its visual sense As connected with the Power to make rules though it May have the additional sense of land As connected with the Power to dispose of in the exceedingly condensed language of Tho instrument nothing would be More Natu by it the object would be fully attained. With that two fold meaning not a word to much is introduced Whilo Tho one claimed the general Power to make All needful is Mere Surplusage for the Power to sell implies every other or necessary to that end. But if it to still urged that the term Othor that the word Tor judges too Aie sent by the disciples of the same school. To cannot govern but we May organize courts that will arrest and imprison without color of crime for months refusing bail while known murderers go of Large on worthless to Compass Tho destruction of printing presses Bridges and peaceful hotels will Aid to pack grand juries and All for Tho avowed purpose of perhaps would to Ille of repopulating the country. To that Havo no Power also Send to the territory marshals not to keep the peace and execute just find no constitutional Power for when marauders invited by our officers Irv Vado Tho country and despoil and murder Tho peo ple to watch for Ordor to give crime Tho color of Law. And they with our Othor rulers have succeeded in making Tho Little Finger of a go Vermont sustained by those who ignore the Power to govern thicker than the loins of muscovite or Turk. And what is the authority if not in our sovereignty for extending the United states Laws Over the territory As by the Nebraska enacting with other Laws a criminal code if sovereignty be not requisite to give Laws to imprison or take life for crime i should like to know what can require it Bur it is said a necessity is Laid upon us and to have Only done Inhat in necessary. As to those provisions where Powers sire withheld which As to the former brings the government in direct Contact with Tho people and makes us politically As Geo graphically and also makes us one people. I accept the Motoo of our Fath ers from Many As a political i believe that All in general hold Tho Dou ble relation of citizens of the United Stittes and of Tho states in which Tho reside. We Are thus equally removed from consolidation and anarchy. Oges enjoyed Only by Tho Rich at to would be biased with from schools. Free presses and Chu Ches in Roach of he would sue , dissipation urn Pov erty his necessary heir looms flee before Trio Dunning the unwonted hum of Industry he May not to to the common t or Story the vision of free society will not to realized there. He must wend his Way where the cold Sun fails to a aim his lands Are beyond his reach and unaccustomed crowds Jostle him in his slower walk or to must remain in his old isolation the Vic Tim of a crushing despotism and too much crushed to repel perhaps to understand Tho Power that oppresses him. Their is no Trust for him. His habitual subjection has shorn him of political Power and modern democracy knows him not. There arc also in Tho slave states native republicans who have not forgotten Tho doctrines of the j authors As Well As republicans who have Hud Tho old world to secure personal lights and not Alabama a these would speak and write and vote Ai they think but slavery forbids. A citizen of yonder state one whom i know in my Schoolboy Days and whom to know was to is Asho always was Clear headed and True hearted who concentrates m his own person As great nobility of soul and More True love for the state of his Long cloption. Than whole districts of her dominant caste this Man to if this to Tho True philosophy of Tho un-1 came guilty of disloyalty to the slave in Ion Tho whole theory of the nature of the territorial Trust fulls to the ground and be sides i can see no interest practically which any state or citizen thereof As connected with his own state can have in the Federal territory. The states did not acquire it but it was ceded to the nation in full Sov they own not the land but that primarily belongs to the same Power and not in if so the proceeds of its Salus would belong to them. Upon this theory those Whoso occupation gives them no actual domicile and who Aro citizens of no particular state or who reside in Tho District of Columbia or Tho territories can have no interest in the common territory nor can a resident of a state for sumo physical moral or other disqualification is denied citizenship therein. Thus the u. States holds its own territory in Trust fora portion Only of its own citizens and leaves it in the Power of any of the states to de Prive another portion thereof of their in Terest of the same. But the claim is Mere theory. The territory is held for the Union at Large and for the states Only As belonging to it subject it is True to the Trust of All govern ment binding them to consult Tojo go8d of the governed and also subject to a additional and imperative obligation arising Froais Tho Penchar situation of the Territo Ries to so found their institution is shall guard the rights of their future people and As shall make states Loyal to to Constitution and its Groat Odb. Terest. The poor around him found a Friend and Ono who sought to Aid them in that career that gives character to Tho free state labourer and instead of being surrounded with gangs of ragged and Shir King slaves the deficiency of whose Thrift less labor must to supplied by the Sale of their Young men my women to gave employment to Tho dependent free White and was thus enabling them to overcome their doom. Thus enlisted in the Elevation of labor be was of course a Republican and vindicated his pain Cirlos by his this Man thus Noble and True not even suspected of violating any a just or in just merely for Tho Security of slave domination is driven from his property and Homo and thus Are crushed his Experiment of free speech and big attempt to elevate free labor. Not he. Feels the blow for Tho name of. John c. Underwood will be honoured when the state to would again restore to her old position will if she per severe soon be thankful for a place scarce above the least. And yet is there no Trust for such As he find Hoso who would bless they May desire Froe territory As a but it is Ull needed the Empire of Tho Desola Tang caste and democracy knows them cot.

The Trust cannot to for such Asho. But if Tho Trust be not vie lated from the effect of slavery restriction upon Grant is it so violated from its effect upon the slave states and their citizens while 10 Lonai ninja the answer will consider what interest any state or its citizens can have in Terri Topial legislation. The territories Aro supposed to to incipient Stales soon to enter Tho minors under training for the responsibilities of majority. All the states and their citizens Are equally interested in having Tho institutions of Tho territory so moulded As to make a Good nest if Ely to. Fit it to perform Woll its Federal Aid in securing Tho ends of Tho Constitution. They should to such As to give Tho Best disposition towards the Union the most eagerness for Tho establishment of.

But Man cannot hold proc Ftp i Man the claim is a vile consummation a terrible usurpation. Avion god Pla ced Man upon the Earth he him do minion Over the fish Tho fowl Tho cattle Tho Earth and every living thing that mov oth upon the Earth but his fellow and Ilo gave him Tho Herb and the Truit bearing seed and commanded him to till the ground. He caused the a u to fall and Tho Grain to yield him its increase and it was All the property or Man but to gave him no Power to i oreo his brother for him. To till the Earth or gather i or him the gain. This is Tho announcement of Tho great Law of property a written in the in i lure of thing s. I Tho idea of property is also one of out most vivid internal conceptions and nil Tho moral instincts Cluster around it. No Lan Guage however poor is without. T Llie mine and no people however barbarous will fail to vindicate their own. The Universal propensity of Tho enslaved or defraud of to steal is but a tribute to the in ird perception of property and Justice. This instinct is vivid and Al controlling in our earliest cais and As much so in the whom gentlemen Call property As in him whom they style his owner. Each vill possess and defend his Little properties the fruit of his gathering Bis labor or his Exchange and neither til false teaching my pampered lust quenches instinct ant dethroned reason will dream that Tho can be subject to his ownership. The same instinct teaches every Man to regard himself As his own. To make Tho Willii g slave to first unmake the Tho sense of self ownership is present and dictates self control even in the relations of a Tiit and natural dependence for though Tho child May led. Yet his will must to broken before to will yield it to Force and even the dire subjugation of a i b of slaver leaves Clear in Tho mind the instinctive connection of 1 and mine. Even under the dire subjection of slavery Man is not held As absolute property implies a subject and owner and thing owned. Tho owner is Man Tho thing owned Man too if so the word expresses a Gelatic n Between men which differs from property. In speaking of persons it is proper to soy thai they hold the relation As of slave master and servant Parent and child but we never speak of Tho relation of. Man and a horse or Man and a firm.
