    tj of all the States. rBut -what has heen
the result ? It is now proclaimed by the
Tictorious party, that State Rights is a
damnable political heresy, and is a joint
tenant in the grave with Slavery and Se
cession. Thus, the melancholy fact con
fronts us that, within the short epace of
five years, under tho demoralizing influ
ence of civil strife, and consequent Eec-
tionil animosities, the people are prepared
to tear away that magnificent structure of
State Rights, reared by the sturdy arms,
and cemented with the blood of our an
cestors the only, refuge to protect us
against the crushing encroachments of
centralization. It is now an accepted
theory of the Union party, and unless the
signs of the times are deceptive, it is
soon to be incorporated into the Constitu
tion as one of the organic principles . of
our Government, that .State Rights shall
so longer be recognized in that sense and
signification they were during the purer,
better, and more prosperous days of the
Republic, even up to the inauguration of

Prior to the induction of the so-called
Union party, the man that would have
pointed to tho realisation tf the' popular
doctrines of the present hour would have
been regarded more in the light of a fa
natical crackbraiu than a political astrolo
ger. ro one will question the co-exist
ence of State Rights with the Govern
znent, or that every administration from
Washington to Lincoln, with one excep-
tion,'has administered the Government in
Strict conformity therewith; and from the
inauguration of Jefferson the doctrine of

ministered in accordance with the princi
ples enunciated in the Virginia and Ken
tucky resolutions. Even the Republican
Convention that nominated Abraham
Lincoln, in 1860, reassured the people of
their endorsement of, and adherence to
the doctrine of State Rights in these
words : ''That the maintainance inviolate
of the rights of the States, and especially
the right of each State to order and con
trol its own domestic institutions accord.
ing to its own, judgment, exclusively, is
essential to that balance of power on
which the perfection and endurance of
our political fabric depends ; and we de
nounce the lawless invasion by armed
force of the soil of any State or Territory,
no matter under what pretext, as among
the gravest of crimes."
Yet, in the very face of these glaring
facts, we find this same Republican-Union
party denouncing the . doctrine of State
Rights, and congratulating the country
upon the extinction of the very measures
that gave them political ascendency .-
When we see, as at present, the major
portion of the people so thoroughly dis
eased from the contact of party rancor
and sectional strife, that they exultingly
declare themselves the willing victims of
falsehood, treachery and oppression,
among such a people the maintainace of
free government has but little encourage
znent. Editors, preachers, orators, public
officials and private persons in every sta
tion of life commingle their sepulchral
notes in celebrating' the death of State
Rights, which "is essential to that bal
ance of power on which the perfection
and endurance of our political fabric de
pends." :
The present occupant of the guberna
torial chair of Oregon, in his inaugural,
ia forms the people that a great and good
res alt has followed the great calamity of
civil war. The prime constituent of that
"great and good result" is the destruction
of that "hated and pernicious doctrine of.
State Rights." Another clement of the
"great and good result," growing out of
the "great calamity," is the death of ne
gro slavery, which the profound researches
of His Excellency's diagnosis proves to
be an eating cancer upon the body politic
that has been gnawing upon the vitals of
the nation until it had well nigh resulted
in the (leath of the nation itself; but he
relieves the mortifying suspense that is
necessarily associated with such a reflec
tion, by assuring the people that the "eat
ing cancer" has been cut out by the
eword, completely eradicating all diseased
action leaving the nation renewed and
reinvigoratcd with a redoubled energy,
displaying a physical and moral grandeur
that crowns it the model Republic of
Being indisposed to inflict unfriendly
criticism upon the appropriateness of His
Excellency's hyperbolical cancer upon the
body politic, or its treatment, it is to be
hoped that little objection can be urged
agaiust the suggestion, that if a more
thorough knowledge of the pathology of
this "eating cancer" were understood, and
a more consistent avowal of its effect upon
the "body politic" were made, a different
phase would appear of the "great and
good result following the great calamity."
Experience has established the fact that
extirpation is not the remedy for an "eat-
It only affords temporary
relief, arresting for a time local mischief,
leaving unaffected the parent germ to re
produce itself in the system with aug
mented destructiveness. The only suc
cessful treatment, indicated by science,
philosophy and experience, is the admin
istration of such remedies as impart tone
and vigor to the body, through the system
cf nutrition, enabling it to resist morbid
tendencies to destruction. Or otherwise,
let it alone.
ow, let us briefly examine this "eating
cancer." and ascertain its effect It had
been fastened upon the "body politic"
more than one hundred and fifty years,
causing no pain or disturbance before it
become constitutional. It is from this
period that attention is directed to its
prognosis. At the adoption of the .Fed
eral Constitution the population of the
United States was three millions. From
thence, at the expiration of eighty years
the population of the United States was
more than thirty millions, with a corres
ponding increase of all the elements that
constitute a great, a powerful and pros
perous nation. During this long period,
this "eating cancer" had been praying
upon the "body politic," producing no in
convenience or complaint in the immedi
ate region of its locality. But the evi
dent tranquility and prosperity that mark
ed its progresss, excited jealous appre
hensions in remote members of the "body
politic," that prompted them to eut out
this "eating cancer," and they at once
proceeded, with sword in hand, to perform
the huge and bloody operation. One
portion of the "bodv politic" refused to
submit to tie operation. A struggle en
sued that has no parallel in the loss of
blood, ferocity and unbridled beastiality
after a fearful sanguinary struggle of
four years after more than ten hundred
thousand men wera slain after more
than five hundred thousand widows were
made after more than two million, five
hundred thousand orphans and invalids
were thrust upon the country, helpless
and destitute after more than three thou
sand millions of money have been wasted,
and when the strength of the "body poli
tic was completely exhausted, the heroic
poIitico-chirurgerists finished the opera
tion leaving the "body politic" almost
bloodies, lifeless, gasping inarticido mor
tis. Then, with fiendish glee they loudly
proclaim to the world the success of their
brutal butchery, and the "great and good
result that has followed the great calami
ty." That the disease has not been re
moved, or the condition of the "body pol
itic" in any wise ameliorated is plainly
and painfully apparent. Whilst we ad
mit the "eating cancer" has been cutout,
the wound remains unhealed, an open,
bleeding, festering, corrosive, malignant
ulcer upon the "body politic," that irri
tates every fibre, poisons every secretion,
and deranges every function, that must
ultimately undermine and break down the
constitution, leaving the "body politic"
the inevitable victim of speedy decay and
dissolution, unless a change of remedies
is speedily resorted to. This is not an
over-drawn picture, as every man whose
mental vision is sufficiently enlightened
to enable him to reason from analogy, and
from cause to effect, must see. The evi
dence in support of the proposition seems
too apparent for elucidation, and such, it
appears, is the conviction of our State
subordinate Executive ; for in his maiden
State paper he says i "But while the re
bellion has been suppressed by the valor
of our arms, slavery and treason buried
together in one common grave, and the
national unity and honor fully vindicated,
other questions of vital importance, and
equally calculated to agitate the public
mind, have arisen." Here, then, is a
clear and unequivocal acknowledgment
that, notwithstanding we have buried
slavery and treason, in so doing we have
resurrected other difficulties equally
grave and fearful in their consequences.
Who does not know that another conflict
would overthrow our inimitible system of
free government, and lay the beautifnl
temple of American Liberty in a rude
mass of unshapen ruins ?
There is little pleasure in contemplating
the dismal gloom that envelopes our coun
try's destiny, and there should be less,
still, to embrace a horrid phantom that
will only prove a dejusive and fatal snare.
The aggregated acts of the Republican
Union party, throughout, have been a
tragic drama of base treachery and de
ceit. They have been unfaithful to the
fulfillment of their most solemn pledges
unfaithful to that Constitution all good
men obey and defend unfaithful to any
consistent or commendable devotion to
the white man's Government to enlighten
and elevate ; faithful only to abridge his
liberty, curtail his happiness, degrade
and debase him. Such have been the
acs of the past, such is the avowed policy
of the present. Can we reasonably hope
for a different course in the future 1
There is only one faint gleam peering
through the gloom that is, for tho old
guard Democracy to remarshal its forces,
stand firm to its colors, never retreat from
the position assigned them by the found
ers of the Republic, and we may yet dis
arm and put to flight the allied hosts of
impartial freedom, anarchy and oppres
sion, that we and our posterity may enjoy
the blessings of civil liberty forever. It
is just as certain as any result can be de
pending upon the contingency of human
action, that if the present party in power
is permitted to carry out the practical
consequence of their theory of govern
ment, all is lost. Every act of the Re
publican-Union party tends to centralize
and increase the powers of the Govern
ment, and proportionably weaken the:
powers of the people. Although the re
cent elections in the East show a defeat,
there is a great increase in the invincible '
Democracy, that gives cheering promise,
that, at no far distant day, the old time
Democracy will again assert its suprema
cy, if the friends of Constitutional Lib
erty will adopt and support the patriot's
motto-r-"iVi7 desjperandum."
The Johnson-Congress Imbroglio.
Last week we indulged in some specu
lations as to what J ohnson and Congress
might do, or attempt to do, in certain con
tingencies. We expressed the belief that
Congress will attempt to impeach Presi
dent Johnson ; and that if they attempt
it they will be successful-r-not because he
is guilty of anything worthy of impeach
ment, but because a Congress so corrupt
will readily find the means wherewith to
produce a conviction whether guilty, or in
nocent. We further expressed the be
lief that if they should impeach they
will hang him uuless prevented by a pow
er greater thau their own we mean the
To these opinions we still adhere for
reasons whieh we have not time now to
give in detail. But there are several
reasons why, if Congress be not entirely
bereft of reason, they will not attempt to
impeach Johnson. In the first place, it
is claimed by those who personally know
him, that he is a brave man; that he has
much of the bull-dog in his composition.
If this be true- and we incline to think
it is it is a very unlucky circumstance
for the Radical leaders. We believe that
though they have been loud-mouthed for
blood, they are all cowarda. Wade, Sum
ner, Wendell Philips, Andrews, Thadde
us Stevens, Greeley where are their mil
itary laurels f For years the war raged
all around them, so to speak ; the coun
try needed the services of able-bodied
men, but in what battle did they first
flesh their maiden swords 7 The truth is
their coward instincts kept them at home
out of harm's way; inciting others to go,
and rousing up irrepressible and inextin
guishable antagonisms between friend and
friend, and neighbor and neighbor. As
for Greeley, who does not remember that,
some years ago he was publicly caned in
the streets of Washington by Rust, of
Arkansas? So far from. resenting the
insult, he merely meekly inquired of some
by-stander: "Who is that man that just
now struck me?" as if he wished to be
formally introduced to Rust ere he pitch
ed into him.
In the second place Congress can gain
little or nothing by impeaching Johnson,
and might lose everything, including even
some of their own heads. Congress has
the power to pass any bill over Johnson's
head by a two-thirds majority. If he
were out of their way by having been
hung on a "sour apple tree" and some
pliant creature of their own installed in
his place, they could do no more. They
can perpetrate any iet, no matter how a
trocious and reprehensible, under the cov
er of a law of their own enactment, and
the President is powerless to prevent it,
eo long as he keeps within Constitutional
bounds, as he professes now to be doing.
Although we believe this Congress is
mad, yet we confess there is much meth
od in their madness. The leaders are un
scrupulous, cunning, crafty and cowardly.
They know that the moment they attempt
to impeach Johnson, many now luke
warm as to him, will be converted into
ardent and zealous supporters; and a
sympathy more or less strong and univer
sal, will be created in his favor throush
out the nation. Persecution nearlv al-
- - rf .
ways begets sympathy. Charles the I,
though guilty of unparalleled duplicity
and petty tyranny unbecoming the prince
of a great nation ; yet when he was
tried and finally beheaded, public opin
ion materially changed in his favor; and
this, too, under the surveillance of an ar
my that, from amid the smoke and din of
an hundred battles, had always emerged
victorious under Cromwell. Thus it was
then, and thus it would be again ; and
none know this better than these aforesaid
Radical leaders.
But there is still another reason why
they will not impeach President Johnson
if they yet have any reason or sense left.
If Johnson is the man his friends claim
that he is if he has the bravery and
nerve attributed to him by them, he will
not remain idle while Congress is trying
him on a charge involving his removal
from the Presidential chair, his conse
quent degradation, and perhaps an igno
minious death. ' We should expect, his
enemies would expect that he would a-
dopt summary measures. He is, by the
Constitution, commander-in-chief of the
military power of the United States; and
Congress might rest assured that that
power would be wielded against them and
in favor of the preservation of tho per
son of the President. Congress, on the
other hand, we suppose will try to raise
an army, it is claimed it could easily be
done through the secret political societies
in the interest of the Radicals all over the
the country. Of course all this would
produce war another terrible and bloody
Civil War. But war cannot long be car
ried on without money. The money-lenders
are a power in this Government as
well as those in European Governments.
Under such circumstances would they
loan more money? We think not. And
why? Because the United States already
owe them three or four billions of dol
lars. They know that the people are
sweating and groaning in consequence of
the heavy burdens under which they are
staggering, and that they will not permit;
thein tote materially augmented, partic
ularly for each a War. We may safely
calculate,' therefore, that all the influence
which the capitalists of the nation could
exert would be against another Civil War.
Capital is proverbially timid and cautious.
Plunge this country into another Civil
War, aud it is very questionable if even
the bonds now held by capitalists would
be paid. Another Civil War might so
uproot the foundations of society that not
even its present indebtedness would ever
be cancelled. ,
These are some of the reasons why
Johnson will not be impeached. If the
Radical party were not guidad by passion
rather than reason, we would have no
doubt they would discard all thoughts of
impeachment. We hope for the best,
but confess we are full of apprehension
as to the immediate future of our coun
try. A few days, or weeks at farthest,
will determine these questiens.
President's Message.
This document came to Albany yester
day in the Oregonian : -the Herald, for
some reason, failed to reach any of its
subscribers is this locality. About noon
we obtained a glance at the Oregonian
containing it; but, of course, it was too
late for us to get it in this number of the
We have not space to say much con
cerning the message. Suffice it to say
that it is an ably-written and statesmanlike
production. Upon the question of re
construction he remains firm contending
that the unrepresented States should be
immediately admitted, and showing, very
clearly, that they have been recognized
as States by the Executive, Legislatire
and Judicial departments of the Govern
ment. Relative to the Mexican question, the
President savs that it was the understand
ing, between the U. States and France,
that a portion of French troops, should
leave Mexico last month ; but, failing in
this, he has adopted such measures as, in
his judgment, the exigencies of the case
Taken as a whole the message suits us
very wll. We have, however, read it
very hastily, and we may modify our opin
ion on a more careful reading.

We think it high time the Stockhold
ers of the V. 1. Company held a 'meet
ing at Salem," or some other sea-port.
The whole concern needs overhauling.
"Business of importance" should be bro't
before the Stockholders. A new era
should be inaugurated. The old hulks
should be fixed up ; trips should be made
with greater regularity; freight and pas
sage should be reduced at least one-half.
But we hare no idea this was done at the
meeting. The P. Trans. Company are a
grinding, soulless, grasping monopoly ;
and as the matter now stands they have
everything their own way. Produce is
here, and it must go down ; and there is
no choice. The public are compelled to
patronize them especially in the winter
when the roads are muddy, and teams
have difficulty in hauling an empty wag
on. The price of passage two meals and
one night's lodging included from Al
bany to Portland is 55,50; the same
from. Portland up again; making a total
of eleven dollars. The entire distance,
down and up is not over 170 miles, and
the time occupied is never less than forty
eight hours, and sometimes four and five
days. The price of passage to San Fran
cisco, from Portland, on some of the ocean
steamers, is $10; the distance is six or
seven hundred miles, and the time usual
ly four to six days. Why should the
People's Transportation Company charge
so much more than the ocean steamships?
The only answer is that the P. T. Compa
ny are a rich, grasping, soulless monopoly
without opposition, and, having the
power, they fleece the traveling commu
nity without stint or mercy.
Good. The Supreme Court of Maine
has mulcted certain parties engaged in
the destruction of the office of the Ban
gor Democrat, in August, 1861, in the
sum of nine hundred and sixteen dollars.
This is as it should be. All those who
mobbed editors and destroyed printing of
fices while the war was in progress or
indeed at any time violated law and
should be made to pay the penalty, even
to the utmost farthinjr. Frecdom-shriek-
crs, howlers for "free press?' and "free
speech" during the campaign of 1860,
were among the foremost in mobbing
Democratic editors and destroying their
offices thro' the agency of insensate mobs.

of government and political economy.
The Times, of November 13th, savs of the
condemned Jr email prisoners in Canada
For these persons Seward has seen fit to
interpose in behalf of the American Gov
eminent. Were parties in America in a
normal state, we confess we should receive
the news of such application with very
great surprise. It is unfortunate that
indignation meetings should be held by
the Fenians. throughout the United States
threatening the British Government with
vengeance jf they should dare to execute
their threats, and thus seeming as if we
were in their power to rob an act of clem
ency of all its grace and represent it mere
ly as an act of fear. For can we admit
that the case of American civil war as
put by Seward is in the least parallel to
the reman m Canada. Tne Southern
States claimed the right to withdraw from
the confederacy which they had voluntari
ly entered and it was easier to refute their
claim to secede by the sword than bv the
pen, but the Fenians have not a shadow
of a claim to belUgerent rights. They
nave nouovernment, no territory. They
are merely citizens of friendly States
who?e object is to murder the, inhabitants
of a neighboring country on their own ac
count, without sembiene of law or justice
Such is the case against granting the Te
quest of Seward. On the other hand
there is great allowance to be mad for
the position of the American Govern
ment. The President is struggling for his ve
ry existence against an overpowering
majority in the contest in which he is en
gaged. The Fenian vote could have reen
of infinite importance to him, but he was
content to forego that advantage at the
most eritieal moment, rather that to tole
rate any act which might compromise the
good understanding betwten Oreat Britain
and the United States. So anxious was
he to prevent the Fenian invasion, that
he employed General Grant and General
Meade, two of the best officers in the
American army in this distasteful and un
popular scheme. President Johnson, had
he been lukewarm in the business, might
doubtless have satisfied the letter of his obli
gations towards the United States "by
much less energetic measures. We do
not doubt that his popularity must have
suffered by this honorable and straight
forward conduct, and that it was in his
power to ingratiate himself with tho Fen-"
ians without involving the United States
in actual collision with Great Britain.
We owe it to him that Canada has not
been a scene of bloodshed and outrage of
every kind, and he askes the lives of ob
scene wretches who are now under sen
tence of death. It is not for us to say
what answer should be given to such re
quest, but we confess we should regard
the granting of it with satisfaction, more
especially as the President is hardly like
ly to renew his intercession in case of a
second Fenian invasion.

are here, men are ready, officers are ap
pointed and the organization is perfected.
The movement on Canada was really a
