Smethport M Kean Miner (Newspaper) - February 28, 1865, Smethport, PennsylvaniaTuesday. Feb. In Advance. . Now that the recent victories that have attended our arms have demonstrated the ability of our government to restore the Eure racy of the National authority with Rock clearness and precision is to exclude the possibility of a doubt and has with eqna1 Perspicuity revealed the utter Enerva Tion of the confederacy and its speedy in glorious collapse it May not be inappropriate to consider Tea main principles that should form the found unions of n reconstruction. In this event the states which Are now in rebellion As states cannot be regarded As provinces or territories but As members of our common Union having lost none of their constitutional immunities when we remember this unholy War and the measureless calamities it Lias heaped upon the people this doctrine my seem almost criminally fallacious the mind being too to precipitate judgment upon the Prin Ciple of revenge but this is a Legal ques Tion in its nature and Only political in its tearing and hence should to examined with All Tho Legal acumen its merits May demand and when thus investigated the pos Airion assumed will be found to to in the circumscription of truth and nation Al policy. A state Stiitt of its superfluity is is a corporation and in its corporate capacity can commit no Cliine. For the commis Sion of crime requires an exercise of will but will is an to lament or attribute of the being a determination of Choice which necessarily presupposes discernment and understanding but a corporation has no soul and hence no discernment or Choice and As this is necessary to the Corn tin asian of a criminal act or any act they Are beyond the reach of Legal penalties and tribunals Tho states were once in the and an exclusion would proceed on the principle of punishment which can Only be inflicted by Law in Conse Decco of in violation but How can that which is entirely passive in to nature of its being sanctioned by and existing Uncle the Law violate that Tho Stales taken by states Are As much in the Union to Day is they Ever were and cannot themselves be punished yet their end us Lilly to Tuc Illus pc i Vitta in Chi ttw8r Treib a soot ail Active credits Bow bused on govern ment very Best and and St can make. If it were possible to Coe setup late the financial failure of government no Bank would be any safer j if Money is the pen ties of those Laws which they have to persist it a barbarous by violated. But Nunin it Lac of our in Tionel difficulties they must either to re. Garbed As suits in the Union or As Terri tories. If they Are regarded As territories they will stand in to same position As if purchased or captured from a foreigner and by Trent inn them tuba we would give a virtual of former Independence. But Iboy have never acquired an us Solute but Only an apparent Independence which was obtained by be cession and Bench ibis would carry Long with it the corollary that r state becomes Independent the moment that it pages an ordinance of thug would immediately open All the flood Gates of anarchy and ruin for it would be the practical establishment of the Mon Strous doctrine of stat3 rights which is it self the embodiment of disunion. Slavery could Only be an incidental question in to event of reconstruction or if the constitutional amendment is Rati fled by the necessary number of which it undoubtedly will question it All As that would then be disposed of. For they could not reasonably deign no the reservation of Tuat institution on the ground that they Hud no action on it or unconstitutionality. For even yielding the Point that slavery is National it derives Ita nationality from the Constitution but that Constitution provides for its own amendment by appropriate congressional legislation and subsequent ratification by Throe fourths of the Legislatures of All the states and when to Fiche conditions Ore legally complied with fat Constitution is effectually amended and by that Amend ment that which u once upheld be forever _ _ Lou cd on individual notes mortgage will be payable i Reacy us the government better.
