THE DEMOCRATIC ADVOCATE. THURSDAY: JANUARY 24, IB6T m- ■ rut cumsii t urns. • Our country appears n, pa(|frvm out erfcis into another. We hjvf just pars <?. 1 tlr<rtC_'S oik', which wan produced % tfc i)o:umkU of NorthernZadi o2*, resisted iu the same spirit Uy Southern Radicals, and was attended by of the iija.U destructive and blood)’ vmm on record. That safely over, and all the demands of the Northern R.idl uali, including uulvcrxal emancipation, | having been obtained, they come for vtwhl with fVcah demands, which, before the war. they scarcely hoped for. They now scorn bout on compelling the South ern States to adopt Negro Suffrage, threatenin';, if this ia not done, to re duce Sovereign States (o a Territorial condition, in which Congress may claim the right to rgsakte suffrage. They do j not intend to be impeded by any Con- Rtitutional barrier. They remember that Coogrcsj had no right to regulate sla very in the Stales, under the Cuustitu lion, bat nevertheless the strong hand) of power overthrew it by means of the war. They calculate now, that If war again breaks out in consequence of their usurpations, that it will only give them another eLauce to perpetuate their pow- r in this country by giving the right of suffrage to their colored allies of the South. ' The people of the South seem to have „ made up their uiumJh to resist nothing, uat even the territorial scheme, should j Congress really attempt it—trusting (bubllcsa to the reaction their citrava- i ganco may produce on the Northern ■ mind. Wo aro glad to seo them take this course, and hope they may not be disappointed in their reliance on North : on) Conservatives. The contest, during ; this crisis, is to take place iu the North- j .era States. It may he a mere political, or u*ral contest, aa it ought to be; but H mar t.lso end iu another civil war.— th ere are several serious matters now brewing which nay so terminate. The impeachment of tho President, so ua o died for and so outrageous, may cf- j cite to violence. But above all, an at- ■ tempt, such as has been threatened, to I Met aside the State Government of Ma- \ ryland, and to set up 9 one, Might meet with resistance, and would i doubles i soon light up th j flames of a civil war. I his would be indeed unfortunate; i’or another civil wnr would at once des troy fhe credit of the Government, the enormous debt of the country would go the way of the late Confederate debt u id tho country would doubtless, in Ihw end, break up into a number of separate Republic*, or despotisms. Wo arc aware that our opponents brag on their ability to make a short war of it, rely ing on the 500.000 weu organised in their f T nlon League; but they bad best nut be too sanguine, for there is a spirit * aroused among thoir opponents which Would spoodily rise equal to the emer- j gentry. Pcopb were mistaken in the I Sotilli, the greater -tho exertions ! that were mads to subdue them, the 1 greater always ria the rcsitancc. It will be so again whenever civil war oc- j oara, and mca vfho now raaks light of it thoir mistake too late. We canim UUllDl (n-at the I imtiAsf ttetttlctiey op events LA In our favor, t nuJ; if our friends continue to art j ’■ discreetly, and as ful as possible on the defensive, the criaia may bo passed in peace.

The petitioners as sign among other reasons for tbe repeal that tlie effect of this taxation is to in duce capitalists to incest in Oorern wont securities, or in States in which no sui'li lax ii imposed, and this capi tal is .withdrawn front tho industrial in terests of Pennsylvania.

THE (JON V KNTION* IIIIX. . j The consideration of thia bill Mimed iu the lluuac on the IGth. A . tuotiun was made to have the election take place at (he next General election iu November, instead of second Wed j nesday of April—-I .oat, yeas 22. niyss3. Mr. Carmichael moved to insert m the bill a danse requiring the Cooveo tiou to prohibit tho General Assembly from making any law providing for the payment by this State for persona here tofore sold as slaves. Mr. Carmichael said this amendment had received tho unanimaim approval of the joint com mittee of ten It was necessary to in sert it in order to quiet the apprehen sions which had been expressed, that 1 ! the object of calling a convention was I to provide for the payment for slaves \by the State. They desired to doselaiui I any such intention, by making this pro- j I vision in the bill. The convention bill of itflO had a provision that ‘ the rela tion of master and slave should not ho j changed.” and the present constitution contains the same prohibition that he \ had presented. ! 51 r. Jones, of Somerset, seconded the . j amendment, and said ho endorsed it I heartily, besidos it was necessary to it. ! because otherwise it would subject all j i their work to rejection. Rut while he should never ask the tBUIUs of Maryland for oompeU*>iti<m far slaves emancipated, f he should contend that when a return | iog onse of justice shall pervade all i portions of the land that the chum for j private property taken for national par-* | pose* nhould be made of the general government. It would be just, he thuu’t., to tax the eitixeus of the State to pay u j claim for private property for which the | national government is responsible.— , Mr. Jones then argued that slaves had always been recognised as private prop erty; that cron Great Britain recognized it, iu hef colonial possessions. In Maryland, projicrty in slaves was formerly considered as secure ns prop urty ia laud. In tho division of prop- j erty it wa usual to give the laid t > the i sons and the slaves to the daughters, us , their portion, and thus it is that women, widows and orphans, have become the ! ! greatest sufferers. It is not to be cx pooled that the general government will 1 recognize tho claims for losses o long j as the present agitation exists. Mr. Williams, of Calvert, said he could see no good result from the adoption of j the amendment, because it Would have no binding If the people Vote ! | for a convention, they can at (he same time vole for representatives who will j i carry out thoir views. He also said that | Southern Maryland had been taxed fpr • all of llw internal improvements of the .State, without having derived any ben | ctit therefrom. Although we never cx- j | |H.‘ot to get anything from tho State for ‘ our slaves, he thought it better not to | [ lie the hands of the State so tightly that | v could not be untied. The time ! couiewheu vast receipt* from the imj rovi uicuts of the Stale may 1 her lo cmnpcusale us iu part lor j i^HsdaveA. Clark, of Baltimore county, said one of the charges which fhgdol- from his county bad to cneouu- ‘ IB that they sought their election for j |H purpose of voting for a convention ; would provide for the payment of J slaves. Everj member of i denied (ho charge. 11* { is not adopted it would to carry tho vole of his j for the convention. WHlhcr mpmenjment is binding or not. it is j I important that ibis House should give ! expression in the bill to their views on j tliis subject. I Mr. Knott. of Baltimore city, said I j that it was indispensable to the hucccm of llm great measure that the amend- ( meet should be adopted, in order to quiet j the alarm of the western counties and j Baltimore city. We shoqld not hazard the succ-'W of the call by rejecting it. Its adoption will effectually blunt the Weapons of our radical friends. Mr. Harche, of Montgomery, said the subject bud been thoroughly discussed iu his county, and he thought it would be unfair and unjust to impo&o snch a prohibition. The vote was then taken on the adop tion of the amendment, with the follow ing result—yeas GO. Nays—Messrs. Miller, (Speaker.) Applcuuui, Baker, Rnmfurd.

The Senate will ■ then postpone tho matter to the meet ing of that body iu connection w ith the new House of Representatives on the 4th of March, for tho reason that on that day the term of one third of the present members of the Senate expires and new members to a-considerable ex tent. including several Radical gains, will lake their places. 'Villi this inert ing of the 4th of March, the Senate will first proceed lo the election of their prosiding officer, and Benjamin " ade. of (Hue, it is supposed, will he I chosen.

On rising s President Johnson was again applauded, ■ lie said it was not his purpose in malts i a speech, hot simply to propose a seoti -1 ment, which Was read, as follows i r I No Slate, of its own will, has n right, | under the Constitution, to renounce its | place in. or to withdraw from the Union. : Nor has the Congress of the United j States a constitutional power to degrade j the people ot any State by reducing ' i them lu tha condition of a mere territo ' rial dependency upon the Federal head. | The one is a disruption—a dissolution , of the government j the other is a eou ! solidaliou and an extreme of despotic power. The advocates of the latter are also the enemies of the Union and of our constitutional form of govern ment. The sentiment was received with long and loud cherts. I The occasion was, all in all, a very i significant one. The Washington cor- I respondent of the Baltimore (tazelle I writes as follows of what was said it the I banquet t i 1 see you have published the twist President Johnson gave, and his brief prefatory remarks. I could give but a taint idea of the effect they produced - upon the audience, were 1 to attempt it. At no time since his elevation to the Presidency has he given such deci ded evidence that hr may hr fully frits hti in any emergency. anil that he may hf fallal equal !a I lit tank nf meeting the d uyert that threaten (he ran a try. His presence seemed to inspire the speakers with a spirit which has been quite un usual for the past few years. It would be invidious to particularise, but I may. with propriety, say that the speeches of Messrs. Black, Cowan. Doolittle, Mcr | rick and Ungers exhibited a true far different from the timid and truckling 1 elocution indulged in of late by tile op i ponenls of Congressional usurpation. In impassioned and emphatic language, ; the President was pointedly told bv , these gifted orators, that unon the firs’t attempt el the plotters at tho Capitol to carry their infamous insurrectionary projects into practical effect, they would look to him ns Cammander-in- Chief nf the army and nary, In rjcrreiu hit Jen e. limit h, their full extent, and that they could, after the orrurreneei uf Ihit ere. nimj rely with rrtieired ami umhmhting atturanec an hit tielrmiinaliun la da hit full duly. j Mr. Cowan, in portraying the mon strous violations of tho Constitution al- ] 1 ready perjietralcd by Congress in ex ; polling members avowedly to secure i sufficient majorities in refusing repre- - | sentativrs to ten Slates, wtiuse riuiit to ( seats was as clear as those of Massa chusetts, ml in hundreds of other usurpations, frequently paused In ask— ■ ,\\ lint then ? What is the remedy.

He i declared that Milligan and the oilier parties whose cases were decided by ! that tribunal were as innocent as ungels | of the crimes charged upon them, os i the evidence conclusively showed, but 1 that. neverl hi less, if the Executive had I not interposed, and so enabled thorn to 1 bring the great question before the | Court, they would have been murdered \ i by order of the commission instituted!

to try them. Judge IJ. did not hesitate ! to class Holt with Conover and his as sociate*—and to compare them to Oates' Daiigorfield and Bcdioc. and he warned tho renters nf the highest judicial tri bunal in the land, iu and out of Con gress, ot the fate ot those miscreants who, within s year of their unbounded power, were tied to the tail of u cart and whipped through London amid tho shunts nf their lurmur ignorant and mis guided dojics. Judge if. also made tho astounding disclosure that within eigh teen mouths Thuddeus Stevens, who now denounces thedecisinnef tho Ciurt, j declared to him (Judge IJliek) that the | military courts and commissions, thou iu full blast, had, iu his opiuiuu uomore legal authority io try parties outside the army and navy than so many ipohs gathered from the throughfarca of our cities by irresponsible parties.
