Tuesday Morning, February 19, 1867.1 Assumption of Town 1>< l,j». The Constitution of the United States con fides to Congress the power to provioe for calling (orth the militia to execute the laws of the Union, suppress insurrection and repel invasion, and declares that no State shall, without the consent ot Congress, keep troops in time of peace or en gage in war unless actually invaded. It would be difficult to express more forcibly the intcn.tion to confine the war making power to the national government. There can be no such thiug as war in Virginia and peaco in Maine. Wherever hostile armies appear up on the territory oi the Republic, they injure the whole body of States. Even if the Union were merely a great Mutual Insurance Com pany, the States have nevertheless taken each other’s war risks, and whatever damage or loss is suffered by the fortune of war must be shared by all alike. These principles are too familiar to need any elaboration. Congress undertakes to sup port the militia in the field. Congress which calls upon each State to furnish its contingent of troops, must by the same rule furnish the means to raise these troops. Whatever the State does iu this way must lie regarded as so much advanced on the account of the general government. W hatever expenditure is made by the towns in complying with the requi- 1 sitions of the State lor soldiers to light the battles of the Union, must be regarded in the same way. The necessary expenses of raising troops belong to the national government ^ as much as the expenses lor equipment, ra- 1 tions and pay alter then enrollment. The whole business is national, Tire war through ' which we have just passed was not waged for 1 the especial Irenetit of Maine. It was the ua- 1 tional government which was threatened, and 1 there is no reason why any portion of the cost ol the war should tail upon Maine rather tlrau Georgia. Nay, does not every consideration 1 ol justice require us to impose at least an equal share ol the burden upon States which ' like Georgia led off iu that dance of death ? ' Whatever town debts were necessarily and < l>ro[>erly incurred in raising troops under calls i ol the national government should undoubt. 1 sdly be paid by the nation, and as t he nation- i al government deals only with States and not ' with towns, should be presented by *he State 1 lor payment. So much we grant to the advocates of an immediate assumption by the State of the war debts of the towus and cities of Maiue. There ate nevertheless grave objections to the bill for this purpose now before the Legislature. J’hat bill does not propose to present these debts to tbe national government. It propose* on the contrary to substitute lor them a State debtjim ited for the present to two millions, which is thought to be one third of the whole sum. Six per cent, twenty-year bonds are to be executed tor the benefit of the several towus, and each is to be allowed its proportionate amount of the whole sum. An extraordinary tax of one and a half per mill, is u> Co assessed on the State valuation to provide lor the interest anj principal of these bonds. The Governor and Conned are to audit the accounts of the towns, and the whole business is to be completed by the ,10th of September next. New it is to say the least que tionable whether the Legislature has any constitution al authority to create such a debt as this. In the second place, the bill in its present form will not equalize the burdeu. Some towus promptly sent forward volunteers at every call; others sent no volunteers and voted large sums to fill their quotas. The former lack at Sr^SigffigSt the strong and willing hands musket; the latter still owe the money which they paid to keep their producers at home. It is not equalizing the burden to impose a part ot this debt upon towns impoverished by the loss of citizens. The action of the towns in voting bounties was taken without color of legal authority at the time. It is one thing to say that the people of the towns had a right to judge for themselves whether their action was ne cessary, and another lor the State to reaffirm that judgment and assume tbe debts so con tracted. The management of the towns ought to be carefully reviewed; all unnecessary and immoderate expenditures ought to be rigidly excluded from the accounts. The task is too laborious lor tbe Governor and Council; it should be imposed upou a special commission; and final action should be deiened until the report of the commission shall have present ed tbe matter in a definite and tangible iorrn. It will then l>e a question whether the State ought to assume the debt, and provide for its payment, or simply to present it to Congress for payment. Tl>e bill now before tho Legislature ought not to pass therefore, 1. Because its constitutionality is doubtful. 3. Because the subject is not ripe for legis lation. Nobody pretends to any definite knowledge of tbe amount or character of the town debts. 3. Because there is no reason for assuming a third of tbe sum of these debts, which is not equally good for the whole, aud 4. Because whenever tbe debts are paid, they should be paid by the Nation and not by the State. The Franchise far Wamen. The question of extending the elective franchise to women is again under discussion in England. The quarterlies and literary weeklies are tailing up the subject in all its phases, and the advocates of women's rights have found a champion in the Westminster Review, which says: It seems to us that no abstract ideas of woman’s mission can reasonably be brought forward as a proof of the urgent necessity for the exclusion of women trom the fran chise under our existing system; and that if the question is asked—What good would be gained by their admission ? the answer is very plain—whatever good is to be gained by the British Constitution. If that be a good, it is evident that the carrying it out must be good. The perpetuation of an omission which origin ated in circumstances that have long since pass ed away, must do as much harm to those who are omitted as would have been done to their countrymen if the British Constitution had not existed. It it lie an advantage to be aide to protect one’s property by the power of vot ing tor members of Parliament, the posses sion of this advantage must be good tor all those who live and own property under par liamentary governmen. The good that would be done to women themselves is, in fact, not open 10 uispuie, unless we uispuie tue advantage of parliamentary government and representation of property; and in that case we must dispute the advantage of the Eng lish system of government altogether. If, continuing to confine om selves to a strictly constitutional point of view, we ask what would he the advantage to the country in general of tiie political representation of temalc holders of property, ou the same con ditions as men, wo think, as we have already indicated, that the reply Is equally clear. If the representation in I'arliamento; those who are interested in property is a national good, tending to the preservation and fostering of all property interests, to the increase of our national wealth, and to the handing down to our descendants ot the national property un der favorable conditions, then the disfran chisement of any class of holders of prop erty must lie an evil proportioned to their numbers, and their enfranchisement an ad vantage in the same proportion. Whatever may be the causes,there can lie no doubt that the class of independent women is a contin ually increasing one in this country, and their admission to the franchise is, therefore, con tinually becoming, by the natural course ot events, a question ot greater practical irnpor tance. . . , . Turning now to the question, what harm could be done by their admission .* we ate em barrassed bv the difficulty of finding any as swer whatever, unless we go out of the bounds we have prescribed to ourselves, and get be yond the limits of the constitutional point of view. Revolutionary violence is out ot the question from them, and their numbers are not such as to give rise to any ot the appre hensions ot a disturbance of the balance of power which have been excited in some minds by the claims of the working classes. There would probably be found some duly qualified female voters in every rank of society, and among them some members of almost every religious system or political party, so that the existing Interests of no single or religious body could bare ,paft-v’ Irom them. It scums difficult^, rar case where the principles of the*t:oISft?n5 14 could he applied with more absolute iv.-lali"1 from the slightest shadow of danger. dom Railroads m Iowa. (COKBESPONDFXCF OF TBF rBFSs.J Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Feb. lj, 1^7 Here, as all over Yankeedoin, the iirst topic alter the salutation, is the weather, which at tbe present writing is rather a cool subject. Yesterday, the thermometer indicated the mercury 18 deg. below zero, and judging by the feelings of the writer, and the consumption of wood necessary to keep warm, to-day must be several degrees colder. We hare not had this winter such quanti ties of snow as, we learn from the Press, you ate bad in Maine, or even anywhere else, no,th of Mason and Dixon's line. At present, there are about 10 or la inches of snow where it has not been blown into drifts. But on the prairies, there are often mauy miles where the snow is so thin that sleighing is giving way for wagoning. THE RAILROADS. Periodically, all this western country is awakened by some new and wonderful rail road project which is going to build up large cities where now there are none, and is sui e to enlarge to ati astonishing degree, cities of piesent tangibility. Just at this time the lever is raging in re gard to a railroad from Cedar Rapids to Keo kuk, which, ii built will ail'ord a southern out let for our products, and a constant water communication with the rest of the world from below the lower rapids of the Mississippi The grading on the Cedar Rapids and St. Paul (Minn.) railroad still progresses, and wc hoj>e that the route to the capital or Minneso ta will be open in the course of a year or more. The Cedar Rapids and St. Louis railroad, which is in reality a continuation ot the road Irom St. Paul, is now under coutract, and the necessary amount to grade the road and ac quire the rlgut of way, is said to be subscribed. A large lone of employees is at work, pushing forward as rapidly as possible. CEDAR RAPIDS AND MISSOURI RIVER R. R. One may judge of the manner railroads are constructed iu this country Irom the rapidity with which the Cedar Rapids and Missouri Riv er Railroad has been pushed forward. Last spring this road was graded to Boone on the Dos Moines river. In April the work of build ing it through to Omaha was commenced. Two weeks since the regular passenger trains from Chicago to Council|Blun's began to run. Tire distance built in about eight months is 1H0 miles, through a worse ccuntiy than the I route of the Androscoggin railroad, in Maine, from Leeds Juuction to Livermore Falls. There were constructed in all 300 bridges in cluding the large one over the Des Moines river. Not a dollar of the money to build lire road had been subscribed on the first of Feb ruary, a year ago, but the requisite capital wa9 subscribed in five days by gentlemen in the east, one of whom headed the subscr iption with $750,000, which he paid. The entire cost of the 100 miles was about $4,000,000, that is $25,000 per mile. There is now a continuous line of railroad from Bangor, Maine, to a point an the prairie 375 miles beyond the Missouri river, a distance in all of not much less than 4000 miles. One may leave his home in Ban gor on Mouo-t ,nonring, and if the trains are not blocked by snow, on or Fri(, night, he can reach a point 375 miles beyu..a the Missouri. Allow me to correct an error which I notic ed in the PrenH a day or two since. The statement was made that the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad Company had com pleted their road to Omaha. The Chicago and Northwestern Railroad Company does not »wn oce foot of railroad in the State of Iowa, rod has not expended anythin? in building 3Wi> nothing in it, except rolling stock and de serve none of the credit of having built in so short a time, a railroad of so great length nn iler such unfavorable circumstances. ___ Iv*s. Ohicag* Owilp. [COB RESPONDS Net: OP THE PEE SB.] Chicago, Feb. 11,1807. It has been so long since I have written anything lor the Press, that so far as I am concerned, your readers may not be aware that the city of Chicago still has a being. I can assure them that she is still the Queen of the West, and it New York does not look well to her laurels, will at no distant day be Queen of the Union. In politics Chicago is the Radical city—rad ical to the core. She will not tolerate any thing that is not radical within her border.— The Times—the worst Rebel paper of the Noith—has been obliged to quit all old Dem ocratic notions, and come out tor univeisal sutl'rage. Judge Trumbull, who is deservedly popular, almost lost his election because our people supposed be was not radical enough— and yet he is a radical man. The Opera House excitement has almost died away. Mr, Lee came, pocketed his nice little two hundred thousand, and has left us. With the exception of an occasional joke about “the man with a fast horse ” and the “long-tailed night shirt,” the drawing might have happened a hundred years ago, so tar as any mention of it is concerned. The whole thing might be called a gigantic hum. Ristori has left us. She received more mon ey here than at any entertainment she ever gave, either in this country or Europe.— Whether this speaks well or ill for the good taste of Chicago, I leave you to judge. The elephantine Miss Helen Western has been exhibibiting herself to crowded houses during the last week. Every seat and stand ing room has been filled by a select audience. All the theatres are in hill blast and the city is decidedly gay. Lectures are less thought of although we have a goodly share of those. Grace Green wood spoke last week, Gough this week this week—aud I don’t know who next; Phillips comes soon. The weather is cold—the coldest known for seventeen years. We have a little snow and pretend to have some sleighing, but I tear it is mostly pretence. Skating is all the rage.— Every man, woman and boy skates. Not to skate is not simply to he out ot fashion, hut out of all society good or had. The love of skating amounts to a mania, and all yield to it. To have a pair of skates, a season ticket to the Kink, and a beau, is all that a Chicago young lady can or will ask for. In morals we may he a shade behind the Forest City. Yesterday the papers boasted that we had been two entire days without a murder, but that happy state of things has ended, for a man was murdered last night m a saloon, for the tun ol the thing, there being no trouble between the parties. The famous Mollie Trussed has been par doned, and is now at large. So much for be ing handsome. It a woman is only handsome enough she can shoot anybody and escape un harmed. Witness Mary Harrii and Mollie Trussell. It is to be lioi>ed that there will never be a premium offered tor men s scalps. L. W. 8. Renal PlWicallasi.
