    STATE RIGHTS DEMOCRAT.
n. II. ABBOTT,
Editor.
SATURDAY APRIL C, 18G7.
The First Kentucky Resolution of 1798.
Retail', That the several States composing the
United States, aro not united on the principle of
unlimited submission to their General Uovernnicut,
but that by a compact, under the style and titloof
a Constitution for the United States, and of amend
ments thereto, they constituted a General Govern
ment, for special purposes delegated to that Gov
ernment certaiu definite powers, reserving, each
State to itself, the residuary mass of riht to their
self-govcrument and that whenever Ihe General
Government assumes undelegated power, its acts
arcunauthoritative, void, and of no forco ; that to
this compact each State acceded as a State, and is
an integral party, its co-States forming, as to it
self, the other party ; that the Government creat
ed by this compact was not made the exelusivo
or final jndge of the extent of the powers delegated
to itself, since that would have made its discretion,
and not mo constitution, me measure vi us pvmr
ers ; but that, as lo all other cases of compact
among otrert having no common juilge, each parly
hot an fat right to jdgt for ittclf, at vert of in
fraction at of the mode ami meatmrt of redrett.

CONNECTICUT ELECTION.
If the telegraph may be believed a po
litical revolution has been effected in Con
necticut English (Dem.) being elected
Governor by about 1,200 majority. The
Pemocrata also claim three Congressional
Districts, viz : llubbard in tho first,
Hotchkins in the second, and W. II.
Barnum in the fourth. The Legislature
is probably Republican.
Last year English was beaten by Havr
ley (Rcp-) fr Governor, the latter re
ceiving 541 majority. In 1SG4 Uawley's
majority over Seymour (Dem.) was
5,658.
Granting that the above telegraphic
news is correct, it will be seen that the
Democracy are gaining rapidly in old
Connecticut, and what is true of this
State we hope, and believe 13 true of
every other except Vermont and Mass
achusetts. We would not, if we could,
Jiavo them become Democratic.
"Wuo Pats ? We hear much in these
days about protection. What b protec
tion ? It U a law which gives a certain
class a monopoly of the market for the
goods they produce. How does it pro
tect them? By putting out of the way
all competition allowing them to sell
their goods at such prices and profits as
their cupidity may demand. They are
thus enabled to make their business prof
itable; but who pays the increased
profits? Where does the money come
from ? We answer : Out of those who
consume the goods of these manufactur
ers. These consumers are not "protect
ed." The poor man with ten children
pays just ten times as much, if he con
sumes the articles "protected, toward
giving the rich manufacturers a large
profit, as docs the rich man with one
child. That is what modern radicalism
-calls jestice. It is taxing the poor for
the benefit of the rich.
The S ate Right Democrat is justly indignant
because a bill was lately reported in the New York
Aiegisiat'ire to -regulate prostitution ana auins-
.tion homes." Rut the Democrat, though it seized

TVe did not do bo, because, when our
paper went to press the proposition bad

or any party injustice; and we never re
fuse to make the amende honorable when
the facts, as in this case, will warrant us
m go doing. There is certainly no neces
sity for misrepresenting the Radical party
in order to make out a strong case; for
the facts show that a more corrupt party

Tho Union l'acillc llnilrontl.
Recently wo havo received, from lion?
L. W. Ross, of 'Illinois, a pamphlet euti
tied: '"The Great Union Pacific Kail-
road" It is a full account of an excur
sion to tho hundredth meridian, "prepar
ed at tho request of tho excursionists."
Among these wcro Hou. C. T. Sherman,
Gen. Simpson, Robert Lincoln, Mr. .and
Mrs. Georgo Francis Train and maid, and
Sonator Wade of. Ohio. Thcro were also
about ono thousand others along. They
had a gay timo. They had plenty of tho
very best to eat and drink; no accident
happened, and when they got away out
on tho plains to a point called Columbus,
they had tho inexpressible satisfaction of
seeing a largo party of Pawnee Indians
engage in a war-dance. Also, tho excur
sionists witnessed an attempt, by these In
dians, to represent an attack, by a body
of Sioux, upon a Pawnee village. Tho
historian says:
"The threo tenU of tho Pawnees stood in their
old place. Around them wcro tho warriors seated,
with squaws and pappooses near, while their po
ntes, with the yellow hand upon them, grazed in
the vicinity. But suddenly a number of aoroemen
made their appearance on the skirts of tho timber,
lying along the rlrer to tno south or the village
The minute the Pawnees perceived them they
sprang to their feet, soiled their weapons, and
started for their horses. If the pontes did not
come to them they lassoed them, and then set off
to meet the enemy. It was out in the prairie that
they came together, and there, in that large open
space, they circled round and round." pursuing and
pursued. Loading as they rode, they fired at tho
foe. Sometimes an apparently wounded rider
would drop from hi saddle, and bis hore would
sweep across tho plain. One man not purposely
was thrown from his horse, and was greatly
shaken by the fall.
Thus, shouting wildly, they went sweeping to
and fro. At first the Pawnees gave way, and the
Sioux nearly reached tho village. Uut there the
Pawnees rallied, and finally, alter half an hour's
eddying back and forth, routed the enemies and
drore them to the timber. Then the victors re
turned in triumph, and, uniting with the pretend,
ed Sioux, resolved themselves into a grand pow
wow to celebrate their victeries,"
When we first read the above wo could
not repress tho wish that Ren. Wade
and a few others with him, could bo set
upon in reality by five or six times their
number of wild Arapahoe Indians in the
Rocky Mountains just m a certain edi
tor we are well acquainted with once was.
We aro of tho opinion that their yells,
and gyrations, &c, would give them a
more correct conception of Indian fight-
ing, ana ueviitry, man anything they saw
aw
that day enacted by the Pawnees
t would have eradicated all roraan
tic and moonstruck notions relativo
to the 'noble red man of the plains and
mountains." We repeat what we have
more than once publicly said, viz : The
true policy, the truly humane polioy that
should be adopted and carried out by the
Government relative to the wild tribes of
the plains and mountains, is that of utter
extermination. It is all folly to make
treaties with them. They will cot ob
serve them ; and they take advantage of
the security which a treaty naturally pro
duces in the minds of the great majority
of whites, to fall upon and murder them
on every occasion which presents itself.
Their .mode of warfare is most cruel and
barbarous. They spare neither age, ecx
nor condition. Were we a painter, and
did we wish to personify the devil him
self, we would draw a big, wild Indian
warrior, with all bis toggery, and paint,
and hideousne?s
But this is something of a digression.
The following extract will give our read
crs an idea of the rapidity with which
w
the Pacific Railroad is being built:
05acb car was laden with a certain number of
rails, all of the same length, and the exaet num
ber of chairs and spikes required to lay tbtra.
1 nese were sent out to the work, and the boarding
ears caving been punned as far as possible toward
ine ena oi tna iraea. the materials were thrown on
behind them, then the boardine cars shored back
and the small cars ued in lajrinz the rails could
come np to tho piles of pew material. Horse pow
er being used to draw the small cars to and fro,
the mere length of the boarding train was no ob
stacle. A small car having been loaded in the
same manner and with the same precision as the
the large ones had been, was run forward to the
end of the track, by horse power. A couple of
feet from tne end of the rails already down, checks
were placed under the wbeel, stopping the car at
once. Before it had well stopped a doxen men
grasped a rail on each side, ran it beyond the ear,
laid it down in its chairs, gcuzed it, and ere its
clang in falling bad ceased to reverberate, the car
was run over it and another pair of rails drawn
out. ' This process was continued as rapidly as a
man would walk. Behind the car followed a man
dropping spikes, another setting the ties well un
der the ends of the rails, and thirty or forty others
driving in the spikes and stamping the earth under
the ties, xbe moment that one car was emptied
of its iron, a number of men seized it and threw it
off the track into the ditch, and the second follow
ed on with its load. Tho work was all done with
excessive rapidity, simply because each man had
but a certain thing to do, was accustomed to doing
it, and had not to wait on ihe action of apy one
else."
By means of this system the track, du
. k t,
. M-v-.,
laid at the ay-
ring the last summer, was
erage-rato of one mile and six-tenths per
day for every working day in the month.
We believe that, five years hence, we of
the Pacific coast may go to the States east
of the mountains by railroad jnd instead
of being six months jd the route, it will
not take six days.
We are firmly of the, opinion, and a!
ways have been, that the Xacifie Railroad
will prove to be very profitable to the
builders. But unlike any other railroad
of jrhicb we have any knowledge, there
will be millions of acres, on either side ot
it, that will forever remain barren and
uncultivated. Senator Wade Bays of the
soil of the plains, that it is "of the most
fertile character and he predicts that it
will be "covered with a dense and enter-

of thirty miles per hour as Senator .Wade
did.bufc in an ox-wagon at the rate of
fifteen miles per day; and our judgment
iL i a i r t " a. t
is that the plains contain millions and
millions of acres of land that never will
be cultivated ; and consequently they will
continue to be' sparsely inhabited. . For
ourself we would not have them, as a gift,

flelIg;(Qui excitement j
Considerable religious excitement has
provailed in thia city during the past Week
under the preaching of the Rev. Mr Earl,
a distinguished revivalist from California.
Whatever doubts wc may entertain of the
beneficial acts of emotional or spasmodic
religion upon the permanent morality of
communities, u is tar irom our latenuon
to interfere in any way with the religious
opinions of any person. Rut there is one
phase of the present excitement which we
regard as offensive to public decency and
calculated in no degree to aid tho cause
of religion; and that is, men and women
crazed with religious enthusiasm, making
a public confession of their secret sins
The confession of sins is enjoined by the
jectionable when made to God, to a upiritu
al teacher, or, to the offended party. The
man who publicly proclaims his own nbaine
implicating other therein, or confesses to
family wrongs and t&isunderstandings
which belong exclusively to domestic pri
vacy, cannot bo fcuppoied to be in that
atate of mind in which he is usually ac
countable for his acts, and tho improprie
ty of such indecent displays is properly
chargeable to thoso who incite and en
courage them. The only purpose which
public confessions, made under excitement
can ecrve is, to gratify the prurient tastes
or the protane, outrage the moral senti
ment of communities and shock all decent
sensibilities. Fanaticism may tolerate but
none but coarse natures encourage such
public exhibition of human frailty: it is
at best a pharUaical affectation of humili
ty. 1V e enter our public pretest against
this practice, as offensive to public pclicy
and private decency. In other places it
has led to mo.st deplorable consequences,
destroying the peace of families and scan
dalizing society, incases where real repen
tance and amendment of life would bare
covered the wrongs with oblivion and
saved tho demoralizing effects of public
exposure.
We take tho above from the Oregon
Herald, and it affords us pleasure to say,
that we entirely concur with the senti
ments therein expressed. Kd. Demo
