LRalelgh Observer, 30th.l
The wires were worked vigorously
between the Tar Heel State and the
Orange Groves yesterday. We called
upon the Governor and found that the
seal of silence had been broken, and
that he was ready to let the public
know just how the case stood. "Here,"
said he, "is what the messenger says to
me," and he handed us the following

The Concurrent vs the Numerical Ma
jorityDifference Between the Abso
lute and the Constitutional Govern-
' The question is, whyin all ages, the
concurrent majority, i& necessary to
form a constitutional government, and
wriy the numerical majority is the dis
tinctive characteristior ef absolute gpvT
ernment ? When the sense of the com
m unity is taken by the concurrent prin
ciple, each interes; -secures a negative
on the action of the othexs. This places
the rights and property.of each under
its,6wn prQtectipn ;Witbou.t thistheye
can be no peaceable or effective resists
ahce to the natural tendency off each; to
come into conflict with the others-
without which resistanc,thre can be
no constitution. It is this negative pow
er,, by whatever namecalled, be it veto,
check, balance otiPOveri or unifica
tion, which in --fact -forms constitution,
Nowthia jteg ativi ppverooines from
the ConcuTreirtriajArfty. ' Without this
majority there an be no Aeative pow
er, and wjttibui Aiegktwe Tower ftiere
can be no constitution. The negative
power makes the constitution just as
the positive power makes the govern
ment. The one is the power of action ;
the other, the power of preventing ac
tion. The two combined make constie
tutional govemmeni. But where the
numerical majority prevails, there can
be no constitution, in the true sense of
the -word, for constitution implies limr
itation or restriction, and numerical
rule acknowledges no restraint Hence
it follows the numerical unmixed with
the concurrent majority forms absolute
government. It is the one power prh
ciple which constitutes absolute gq v
ernment and not the number in Whom
government is invested. The numeri
cal majority is as much a single power
as the absolute government of one ox a
few, The former isas niuoo the abso
lute government of the democratic or
popular form as the other is of the mon
narchical or aristocratic form. Hence
the former has the same tendency to
abuse of power as the latter has. The
one power principle has been the bane
of governmental efforts. Xt is thoevil,
genius of governments-r-the demon that
has foiled the designs of the wisest hu
man legislators. , All . constitutional
governments, of whatever class. they
may be, must have the concurrent prin
ciple renting on the right jaf suffrage,
and all combined with a proper organ
ism. Per contra, all absolute govern
ments concentrate powei in one indi
vidual or body, whose will Is regarded
as the sense ot the community. Hence
the broad distinction between govern
ments is not of the few or many but of
the . constitutional or absolute. The
essential ' difference between 1 govern
ments hinges upon the question wheth
er they are constitutional or absolute,
since all governments, monarchical, ar
istocratic, democratic or popular, must
come under the head of constitutional
or absolute. A monarchical govern
ment or an aristocratic one may be em
inently constitutional ; while a demo
cratic one may be wholly absolute, nay,
represent, the-worst and jextremest type
of absolutism. 1 ' '
Another difference between the con
stitutional and the absolute form of
government lies in their respective con
servative principles. This principle in
constitutional government is compro
mise : in absolute eovemmente it is
force, To prove this : as already shown,
the same principle which leads the gov
ernors to oppress the governed will lead
the governed to resist when possessed-,
ul we ijieans, 01 maKing peaceaoie? ana i
eiiecuve resistance, jnow, aosoiute gov
ernments exclude all other means of
resistance except force. The people
must submit or go into revolution. But
the anticipation of such action on the
part of the people lends government to
prepare to meet force with force.
Hence, force becomes the conservative
principle of all absolute governments,
that is. the principle by which it pro
tects and maintains itself. On the oth
er: hand, the consti tutional government,
with concurrent principle embodied in
it, gives to each interest the means of
protecting itself by its organized nega
tive Hence, the effect is to make each
interest refrain from oppression and to
force the several interests to unite in
measures of common interest as the
only means to prevent the suspension
of the, action of the government. .Hence
we may trace the conservative prihei-1
pie of constitutional ffovefnments to
the necessity which impels th& dinentLf

the voice of the concurrent majority,
unselfishly uttered in ; the spirit of pa
triotism and in "view of impending an
archy, this may, not irreverently, be
called the voice of God. In this sense
onlt does the aphorism hold, Vox po

conservative prlnciiuei of absolute, and
itlsuJned that each is an un
mixed government of its kind. In fact,
however, few governments have been
entirely absolute, and none have been
Constructed on a purely concurrent
principle.- Hence itfduows that in
each there twill be force,,and compro
mise to a certain extent. In the abso
lute governments, force will predomi-
ate, and n the constitutional, compro
lise. "Hence governments, depend more
or less on toree'-or compromise, its the
