THE PRESS. Thnredav Morning, Apri , 13G7. •*a»t bay. The attitude of supplication an 1 of humilia tion before the great Kuler of all Hurnaii des tinies, is as becoming to states and nations as to individuals. It is good for the public as tor tho private conscience occasionally to sub ject it to humble, prayerful and rigorous exami nation; and lor communities to search out their many transmissions, to humbly confess them, and to consecrate themselves anew to the ser vice of God and the advancement ol His king dom. The early New Kngland fathers, among whom the custom of our annual Spring Fast had its origin, were men deeply imbued with the spirit of devotion, and who recognized in a special manner their constant dependence on aud accountability to tho Author of all be ing. To them it seemed a most unfitting thing that when tho winter rest was over and the labors of tho year were about to begin, the hus bandman should cast in his seed without hum bly soliciting upon it the blessing of Him w :o alone can give the increase. In retaining the outward observance of the day which they in stituted, it is to ho feared that we have failed ff0Ti k* k°hl fast that earnest aud devout spirit * which made it to them a season of renewal and revival in all good efforts and pure aspirations. We have grown somewhat indifferent aud cold, and we are in a hurry about the things ol this world. We give to the day the least out ward observance which is possible, but we I scarcely let the cares aud pleasures of life out of our miuds long enough to give us time to pray. This is surely not well. It tho ■ time honored and appropriate usage of our fathers calls for no respect at our hand, it at least, be hooves us to consider whether we can afford to lose the restraining influence of their simple and reverent recognition of the presence of God in all their ways. In’our restless, fever ish, hurried life, thoughts of Him, of His loving care over us and of His maims upon us, are too apt to bo stifled or thrust aside. This day al lows us tho opportunity, for once in the whole round of the busy year, to leave the wearying cares and sordid considerations of trade, and lefrour thoughts run in higher, purer channels, to infuse into our plan of life something of a deeper and mere earnest spirit, and to take hold on the unseen but momentous realities of tho world which is beyond. Again we ask— Gan we as a community, any moie than as in dividuals, alford to let all this pass us by? Opinion of the Full JEfencla. ON THE POWER OP THE STATE TO LOAN ITS CREDIT] Bangor, Feb. 18,1807. Sir: The undersigned, Justices of the Su preme Judicial Court, have the honor to sub mit the following answer to the iuquiry con tained in your communication of February 10th. N uinerous amendments to the original Con stitution of tlie State have been adopted, in accordance .with its provisions. The sixth amendment, in pursuance of the resolve of Ju ly 20,1847, is in these words: Article G. “The credit of the State shall not be directly or indirectly loaned in any case. The Legislature shall not create any debt or debts, liability or liabilities, in behalf of the State, which shall singly, or in the aggregate, with previous debts and liabilities hereafter in curred at ary one time, exceed three hundred thousand dollars, except to suppress insurrec tion, to repel invasion, or for purposes of war; but this amendment shall not be construed to refer to any money that has Been or that may be deposited,with this State by the government of the United States, or to any fund which the State shall hold in trustfor any Indian Tribe.” Pr>or to this amendment, there was no con stitutional limitation to the power of the Leg islature to create debts in behalf of the State. The general design was to provide a perpetual Check against rashness or improvidence. “The credit of the State shall not be directly or in directly loaned in any ease.” This indicates the great purpose of the amendment. But as there may be occasions'for indebtedness lor State purpose, authority is given to create a debt to the amount of three hundred thousand dollars. Indebted uess on the part ot the State is limited to this amount. The object of the amendment cannot be misunderstood. Its binding loreo cannot be denied. It is the calm and deliberate expression of the popular will, embodied in the solemn form of a copititu tional restriction upon legislative ae im. But it was obvious that exigencies might oc cur, that pressing necessities might arise, when the safety and well-being of the State would require that this limilatiou should be disre garded. The ameuduient, therefore, is made subject to the following exceptions: “To sup press insurrection, to repel invasion, or for purposes of war.” Those exceptions relate to ttie general duties of government. They au thorize the Legislature to create a debt, when necessary to discharge obligations arising un der the Constitution of the United States, or to protect its owu citizens iu the full enjoy TnTV*;'deWiiik‘irtt must be to provide for the special"Tdmfots1'dis tinctly set forth in the exceptions in the sixth amendment, ami for uone other, whenever the constitutional limit has already beeu exceeded These are “to suppress insurrection, to reuel invasion, or for purposes at war ”_area* 1L. tioual emergencies requiring piompt and en ergetic action. Insurrection must exist, else it cannot be suppressed. The public ene my must have invaded the territory of the State or nation, else he cannot bo repelled._ There must be a state of war imminent or ex isting, else there can be no purposes of war.— The exception looks to the preseut—insurrec tion, invasion or war as actually existing or impending. The government of the United States can rightfully call on the State in any of these contingencies, and it is the duty of the State to respond to the call. The existence of these conditions alone give the Jlegislature a right to create a debt exceeding in amount the constitutional limitation. The debt thus creat ed must lie to meet tliese exigencies, and not to pay the existing and outstanding liabilities of corporations or individuals. • The act to which our attention Uncalled is entitled “An act to equalize tho war expendi tures of tlie several cities, towns and planta tions.” The title of the act clearly expresses its object—to equalize, the war expenditures, by relieving some cities, towns and plantations in part from debt voluntarily contracted, and im posing the burden upon the rest. By section 1, the Governor and Council are to examine the accounts or claims of the sev eral cities, towns and plautatio as of this State for expenditures made and liablilities incurred in furnishing soldiers to the State under the several calls of the President of the United States therefor, to suppress the late rebellion, and shall determine the amount which shall he allowed or reimbursed to each respectively, which adjustment shall bn made on the fol lowing basiH, viz: allowing to each city, town or plantation an amount not exceeding its act ual expenditures necessarily incurred, having reference only ,o the amount paid as bounty and expenses attending the same, in which ad justment unnecessary bounties and expenses shall be reduced to a just basis,” &c. By section 2, when the above amounts are ascertained and certified to the Treasurer “he shall notify the several cities, towns and plan tations of the amount allowed each, and shall execute, in due form, the bonds of the State for their benefit, in sums of one thousand five hundred ami one hundred dollars, to’ the amount of one-third of the whole sum allow ed, uot exceeding two millions of dollars- hut if one-third exceeds two millions, then each shall receive its proportion of that snm. Said bonds shall bo payable at any time within twenty years, with interest coupons attached livable annually, at the rate of six per cent ” &«. ■* ’ jjy section a, me points belonging to any city, town or plantation that votes so to do shall be sold by the State Treasurer, if th y can be sold at par, and the amount so received shall be paid to the treasurer of such cities, towns and plantations, and applied to the pay ment, of the indebtedness thereof, or if not in debt, to pay State taxes, current town expenses or tor the tne support of schools as the town may vote &e. «7e?1££J>0aede1ijU in it8 very term3 negatives the existence of the excepted cases, in which H*S constitutional limitation upm such State indebtedness maybe exceeded There is no insurrection to be suppressed, no invasion to lie repelled, no war, for the purposes of which money may be needed. The bill is to create a debt on the part ot the State with which gratuitously to reimburse the numerous municipal corporations therein for exmmdi tures voluntarily incurred by them, for the payment of which they now are. and the State is not now liable, but is in and by its passage hereafter to be made liable. During tho existence of the rebellion, the Legislature by various acts ereated a debt “for the purposes of war.” Of such debt, the obli gation of payment is as unquestionable, as the right to create it, is undoubted. This debt, thus created, largely exceeds the constitution al limitation upon State indebtedness. The municipal corporations of the State had “c'cgal right to give bounties or contract debts for any such purpose. It was not witnin tne scope of their power. Nevertheless, with-:‘?rity they attempted to create lig ltinn'f111?4 object- They were under no ob St % Legislature, by subse rclatiou to ratl®cd their past doings in would Otherwise 'have? bej!i?h?Md val‘d, what the same time it empowered £At tain limits to create a mtur,.

Being debts they are like other debts, no matter what their ort gin, nor how generoua|the purpose of their areation. * 'The cities, towns and plantations, in their attion under the several statutes to which we have referred, were in no respect, either di rectly or indirectly the agents of tho State, nor did they incur any liability in its behalf. They had no authority express or implied to do that. The Legislature in its various en actments made such provisions, in the way of lountics an,l of rendering aid to the families of nr,,, service, as it deemed just charge in i,The 8tat0 h»» honorably dis empo;?red n‘o,rntiil“ati,’,,al ob,j?atio,n9- » as it, agent—to ' deficience?? to supply it* omwsioim_*.„ lu* aencience8 comings. It did i« own well. It indicated the d‘l't whiffs it would reimburse the several w,.^m ♦owui an« plantations for their exnenrfi utsvie of those limit*, the condition I* u.c.pal cornora ion watt the same as individual, who not being liable to serve ' PrOOUX(t a substitute or advance funds or do any other act in furtherance of the com mon cause of the nation. If the cities, towns and plantations were the ■ gents of the State (which it is manifest they "were not) then their whole indented ness in cur d for bounties and the expenses attend i i" the same, is the present debt of the State (Or the payment of which .justice would reuuiro that immediate provision should he made While the people of Maine have imposed re strictions upon the Legislature, by prescribing limitations upon its power to create a debt, it never repudiates in whole or in part. If these corporations were the agents ot the State, and fl’o, *1 Wa! cr,ea,t" d .by its agents in its behalf, 1 *„k ***** act wh*% fails to discharge what in >uon event would be its manifest duty: for as ;ar^y, debt contraeted at its own instance, w agents on its own account should he acid sacred. But such is manifestly not the view ol those, who tavor the passage of the act under consideration, for its very language re pudiates the idea of any present State indebt edness and proposes to assmno a fraction only of the exhisting liabilities of the cities, towns and plantations of the State. By section 3, the proceeds of the bonds are to be applied to the payment of the indebted ness of the cities, towns and plantations anil “if not in debt, to pay State taxes, current town expenses, or for the support of schools, as the town may vote.” The constitutional limit of Ihree hundred thousand dollars lias been passed. The proposition is tostill further exceed that limitation. The debt in and by this bill to be created, among other objects is “to pay State taxes, current town expenses or for i he support of schools.” Is sucli a debt created to suppress insurrection, to repel invasion, or lor the purposes of war? The proposed bill particularly specifies the appropriation to he made of the bonds of the State or of the funds derived from their sales and they are for none of the purposes indicated in the exceptions to the sixth amendment to the constitution. It is not enough tiiat a debt lias been created by some corporation or individual for the “pur poses of war.” If it were, the Legislature might assume the debts of any sister State or oi the United States as well as of individuals. They might assume debts thus arising from any of the past wars in which the nation has been engaged. Tlie authority is not given to create a debt to pay debts howsoever and by whomsoever created, though for purposes of war. The State must by its constituted authorities cre ate the debt in its inception and for the pur pose specially excepted from the general pro hibition of the amendment. Whatever the State in its corporate capacity expended, or whatever, if it were an individual, it would be. bound to pay as a jnst debt for the purposes of war, may bo provided for by creating a debt exceeding in amount tlio constitutional lim itation of three hundred thousand dollars.— But tlie creation of debt created by the Legis lature for and on account of the State and on its credit differs most essentially from the as sumption of a debt created by others and on their account and credit. The constitution authorizes under certain conditions the former but not the latter. 'Che bill proposes to create a debt when none now exists. It is not a kill to create a debt to suppress insurrection, to repel invasion or for the purposes of war. It does not purport to be. It is a bill to createa debt to pay the debt or expeuditures of municipal corporations, in the creation of which the State was not a party, in the disbursement of which it was not consult ed and over which it had no control, anil lor the payment of which it is under no present liability. The conclusion to which we have arrived, is that the proposed bill to which you have called onr attention, would, if enacted, he in plain vi olation of the constitution of this State.

The I.ele Election in Connecticut* The Washington Chronicle ofTuesday speaks the following just and emphatic words: The lesson taught by this result is valuable and worth all that it has cost We shall make up more than we lose in Connecticut by our gains in Tennessee in August, where the Re publicans will succeed because they did exact ly what the Republicans of Connecticut did not when they had the chance, a little more than a year ago. They gave the colored men the ballot. Had our lricnds in Connecticut not voted down the proposal to enfranchise their colored people in the winter of 1866 they would not now be deploriug the loss of some of their truest champions. If the same vote cast for Uawley yesterday had been given for equal suf frage, when it was before the people, it would have consigned the now rejoicing Copperheads into a perpetual minority. We hope the lesson will not be lost upon our friends in other States. The election in Connecticut will do more to make bold men holder and weak men fewer than Hijy event of recent occurrence. The following from the Hartford Press of Tuesday shows the right spirit, and that though temporarily heateu the true men of Connecticut are not discouraged: We shall be reproached by grumblers out side, but we care nothing for that. We have planted the party fairly on the rock of impar tial suffrage, auu if we had won, we should have been indebted in no degree to many whose sympathy we ought to have had in abundant measure on such ail issue. But though temporarily checked, we are in no sense dismayed, or dubious about a final and near triumph of our principles. Whoever at tempts to run a high-pressure pro-slavery boat over theso waters will strike a rock. We give notice that we have taken “lower holt” aud the grip is not relaxed. It bus been the curse of the republican par ty that it has permitted certain men in the wiio'liavemiTy cared for its offices’ and not at all for its principles; aud the influence of these men has continual y eaten away the pith and manliness of the party. We have carried ihese men by herculean efforts. We have now sloughed them off. In the operation we have been enabled to convey the State to the general enemies of the country, but we are well rid of them at any price. Senator Dixon has never had any sympathy with the ideas ol tiie party which carried him, aud only got re turned to the Senate by professions of fidelity which he never felt. Mr. Secretary Welles has been of no service to the party since it placed him in the Cabinet. Senator Foster Inis taken just that middle course which is al ways weakness. The adherents, of Mr. Dixon scattered throughout the State, have stabbed tiie party in secret, using the favorite method oftheir leader, never courageous hut always vindictive. That a small body of men have been able to be so inischevous, is due largoly to the foreign vote which is constantly increasing in this manufiioturing state. For years the natural increase of American voters has only been able to balance it, aud now that the war is over, the naturalizations have poured in a flood of those who hel l aloof while tile chances of a draft were impending. The extraordinary use of money has enabled tiie sham democracy to use the foreign vote to the fullest extent. While the republiorns in this (canvass have been embarrassed for want of money for the ordinary expenses, the copperheads have drawn upon inexhaustable sources.
