It may be affirmed that the govern
ment of flits country prigirfally es
tablished is the grandest political
achievement whereof history gives any
record illustrating above all others
more skill, more wisdom and a higher
standard. In his profound work on the
history of European civilization, M.
Guizot, with obvious truth, remarks:
"Of all the systems of government and
political guarantee, it may be asserted
without fear of contradiction that the
most difficult to establish and render
effectual is the federatlvesystem - a
system which consists in leaving In
-each place or province, (State?) irt every
separate society, all that portion of 'gov
ernment which can abide there, and h
taking from it only so much of it as93
indispensable to a general society, in
order to carry it to the centre of this
larger society, and there to embbdy: Jt
under the form of a central govern
ment. This federative society, theoret
ically the most simple, is found in prac
tice the most complex ; for in order to
reconcile the degree of independence, of
, local liberty, which is permitted to re
main, with the degree of general order,
of general submission winch in certain
cases it supposes and exacts, evidently
requires a very advanced state of civil
izationrequires, indeed, that the will
of man, that individual liberty, should
concur in the establishment and main
tenance of the system much more than
in any other, because it possesses less
than any other the means of coercion.
The federative system, then, is one
which evidently requires the greatest
maturity of reason, of morality, of civ
ilization in the society to which it is
This kind of government, if difficult
to construct, is surely high. The states
men of the feudal ageitried it and fail
ed. The statesmen of our revolutiona
ry era tried it and succeeded. What
the barons of Europe failed to effect,
the barons of America succeeded in
consummating. And this is the great
glory of the constitution-makers of
J787. , ,
The constitutional government of
these States composing the American
Union was peculiar in its origin. Other
constitutions and this gives to them
large advantages have been the pro
duct of favorable circumstances-Hhe
result of long-existing and long-operating
experiences. Such constitutions
grow out of the body politic .as. the skin
grows out of the tissues of the body
that it enfolds ; and they are thus apt
to fit closely and well, neither too loose
nor too tight, but adapting themselves
to the form and contour of the country
and the people of the country. Hence
the work of those whose office it is to
direct the political affairs of such fa
vored lands is comparatively easy. The
form of government takes care of it
self, at least to a great extent, and the
energies of statesmanship can be di
rected to the development 6f the re
sources of the community.
Far different was the origin of our
constitution, and hence far more diffi
cult was the achievement of .our states
men. Ours had its origin in the will Of
the people. The men who met in 1787
to frame a constitution and to establish
a government for the country had to
build from the foundation and to com
binB - within themselves the qualities
both of i political , master-workmen and
the higher skill of political arcnitacts,
and the yet higher wisdom of political
eerswho werato propel vision far into
the. dim recesses x the future.- They
were, in another point of view, master
tailors, who were to cut the garment
suitable for the young giant of the coh-tineot-to
anticipate as far as human
sagacity f would allow how he was to
develop, as jhe would .pass through the
: stages of' infancy and jrouth to man
hood. It varia difficult thing to do. It
;cannot be denied that the fathers did
their work with ateganlfor "vrell-order-,
ed liberty with a wisdom and a grand
, eur .of, conception that has commanded
the admiration of the world. But if

" Ours," says Calhoun; " is a system of
governments compounded of the sepa
rate governments of the several States
composing the Union, and of one com
mon government of all its members,
called the government of theTJnited
States.". That is, our governmental sys
tem consists of the general government
on the one hand and, on the other, of
the State governments the former cre
ated by the latter, Each founded on
the great principle of the responsibility
of the rulers to the ruled, . and each
formed on the same models-each fram
ed by written constitutions, and each
dividing the powers of government into
legislative, executive and judicial. Be

. Grand, then, it appears was the
scheme of our government of govern
ments as designed by the authors. It
finds its counterpart only in the solar
system which astronomy unfolds to the
mind's eye. ' The general government
may be likenedfto the central sun re?
volving upon its own'axis,-and at the
same time keeping within their respect
ive orbits the numerous suns rep
resenting the States, moving each
on its own poles and at the same
time revolving round the central lumi
naryl )Nor is the analogy yet complete.
As the central sun by virtue of its cen
tripetal force keeps the attendant suns
in their respective orbits, preventing
M . Jt iA,
tnem irom rusmng mauiy uw space,
and as tne attenaani suns oy virtue ui
their centrifugal force prevent them
selves from being absorbed within the
interior luminary and thus becoming
extinct: so the federal government as
the central government operates upon
the State governments, and so do the
State governments act upon the federal
government, each by virtue of its re
straining influence preserving its own
integrity and the integrity of the other.
The one prevents the tendency to dis-integi-ation
: the other prevents the ten
dency to consolidation. And thus when
the just influence of each is respected,
and the system allowed to operate as it
was designed in the beginning, the re
sult is hajmony ; aud the music of the
spheres is not confined to the divine ar
rangement involved in the siderial sys
tem. Such was the government as it was
formed and put in operation. The
question arises, What is its condition
now V We proise to follow where log
ical reasoning and immortal truth lead
"as we understand logic, and truth
which involves logic.
yThe goverment has been subverted.
Jt is not the government of J737. While
power cannot destroy right; while war ;
cannot subvert principles, yet war and
power can and do accomplish practical
results; .and men must bow. before the
logic of accomplished facts. The gov-.
ernment pf this country has been prac
tically changed. The concurrent prin
ciple that lay like a pearl of great price
in the rocky bed upon which our fath
ers built their goodly edifice, has been
cast aside as a worthless bauble, nay,
worse, as a piosonous, unclean thing;
and virtually the States have become
provinces, and State sovereignty has
become an exploded dogma. It is true
a large mass of local rights remain to
the States, and'ioeal rule prevails to an
extent sufficient to delude the masses
with the idea that the States have not
been shorn of their strength. But for
all that thev have been shorn of their
essential strength. The Philistines of
consolidation have gained the mastery
over the Sampsons of State rights. The
government is virtually a government
the numerical majority, whjeh has just
ly been called crnel as death and re
morseless as the grave. Said De Toc-
querille, that profound writer and close
observer, referring as far back, , as 1833,
o tne U nited States : The majority in
that country exercise a prodigious, ac
tual authority, and a moral influence
which is scarcely less preponderant; no
obstacles exist which can impede, or so
much as impede its progress or which
ea induce it to heed the -complaints of
those whom it crushes upon its path."
This same writer who looked, perhaps,
mote keenly into American institutions
than any other foreigner, and with less
prejudice; who sought toilet his just
censures attend the true event adds:
This state of things is fatal in itself
and dangerous jfpV the the future.
If th free institutions of America are
ever destroyed, Tjljat event may be at
tributed to the unlimited authority of
the ? majority, but it. will ; Jiave been
brooght about by despotism." '
What is needed is -what we have
lost, yiz: sottte adequate means for the
protection of the minority. No written
constitutionh-rno free-press no religi-
uu aeunmepteisHng no appeal to
the past-can i)e sufficient for this pro

We cannot tell nreciselv what th rv

What a grand spectacle I Upon such
a sight the shade pf Jefferson and Cal
houn would gaze with patriotic rapture,
and even WeDster's great spirit would
acknowledge the sight to be surpassing
in beauty any that his imagination con
ceived 'when on earth, in his honest, but
mistaken zeal,' he deceived himself and
deceived the country with a less lofty
conception of a governmental id'eaL :
The Roman Emperor in his agony
cried, as we are told, and repeated the
wailing supplication: "Varus, Varus,

So the thoughtful tden t of his coun

broken down the bulwarks and safe
guards of our old government and con

the country its slaughtered principle of
Stfttesovereignty, which ought to be
the brightest jewel in the diadem of the

A Matter of Interest to Travelers,
Tourists, emigrants and mariners find that Eos-
tetter's Stomach Bitters is a medicinal safeguard
against unhealthfol Influences, upon which they
can implicit? rely, since It prevents the effects that
an unhealthy climate, vitiated atmosphere, unac
customed or unwholesome diet, bad water, or other
conditions unfavorable to health, would otherwise
produce. On long voyages, or journeys by land in
latitudes adjacent to the equator, it is especially
useful as a preventive of the febrile complaints
and disorders of the stomach, liver and bowels,
which are apt to attack natives of the temperate
zones sojourning or traveling in such regions, and
is an excellent protection against the Influence of
extreme cold, sudden changes of temperature, ex
posure to damp or extreme fatigue. It not only
prevents Intermittent and remittent fever, and oth
er disease of a malarial type, but eradicates them,
a fact which has been notorious for years past in
North and South America, Mexico, the West In
dies, Australia and other countries.

Rev. Leroy M. Lee, D. D., Meth. Hist'n.
I am never without It at home or abroad. It Is
an antidote to Indigestion. Uneasiness after a
meal or purging Is checked and the bowels regula
ted. Its merits are attested by numbers of high
character. I have seen a "trled-everything" djs
peptic of fifteen years relieved by one dose.
Rev. Drs. Jeter, Broaddus, Dickinson (Bap.)
It Is endorsed by the direct personal testimony
of men of national fame and of strictness of
speech. It is not too much to say that no medicine
ever had such support in its favor as a speciie.
The word of any one of the eminent divines wso
underwrite this antidote to dyspepsia has deserved
weight. Their united witness Joined with the ex
perimental use and approval of the preparation bj
well-known physicians, removes all doubt. It is.
beyond question, a wonderful therapeutical Hgent.
