It trill be rcCMiUomd. that a Mediation til iwped by • Public rf iseus, tueaUri is mm mviiHob *t Leonard Town, on ibo 42ml of Jtmrj, ultimo, recommending the Commissioners Coart of oar comity to levy on the umsm lie property ef the eoauty the sum of SSOOO or lees to purchase arms, amuni fion, Ac., for the defence and protection of the lives and property of our people. The Commissioners Court, with characteristic patriotism, promptly signified tbeir readi ness to make the proposed levy, provided they could be assured # that it would meet the approval of th|tai-payers of the coun ty. To this end, St a subsequent meeting, committees were appointed for the several district* of tb* county whose duty it was made to, ascertain (bj view* of tax payers In rofcmtm to the levjumh instruc tions to report the result Uooni the Comtisis.-i >ners Court <HH|h>r]y day. We leam with regret thatrWrduty tbu far has been very indifferently performsd, at least in several of the districts, and moreover that the levy itself has met with considerable opposition, because the reso lution which requests it to be made dots not indicate to whom the artua, when pur chased. shall be delivered or upon what conditions. The apprehension is. that uu less the arms shall be delivered to the or ganised military bodies in tb* county, they will be eomparatirely useless in cases of emergency uud are likvly to be injured or lost by 'being disposed off in s different manner.lf the arms shall be purchased, the Commissioners Court, we would state, i will have entire Control over their disposal' and can give them to whom they think I proper and annex such condition* to their ' delivery as they may see lit. We have no , Ueubt that the Honor able Cum miss toners \ Court will take every precaution to ensure | the .ouuty against loss, and we are confi dent they will see the wisdom of giving the arms to those who arc educating themselves to use them with eflVct and who are likely in take cure of them, or if they fail to do this, who will be responsible for them.— ; There are now six. companies In our coun ty ,—cue iu Vuefe district,--fully officered sud in an advanced jtste of military discip line, but only two of those have arwa and none of them have amuuitiun, except abet they may have pure bawd themselves. Our suggestion is. that only arms sufficient to equip the four companies in the county which are without arms shall be purchased, and that they shall be given to these com- j panics, upon the Captain of each executing a bond to the county similar in provision to the one now required to he given to the State in like eases. But the Commission ers Court will certainly not make any levy, unless the views of the tsx-psyers are firt obtained in reference to it. It is not likely that the several committees appointed to ob tain there views will trouble themselves further about the matter. Wc* propose, therefore, that each of the military compa nies in the county shall appoint a commit tee to wait upon the tax-paysn in the several election districts and obtain their views at as early a day as possible iu re ference to the plan which we propose and forward the same tu the Commissioners Court as suou us practicable. Thu Hew* Wc learn from our city exchanges, ibat Mr. Lincoln has arrived at Washington. We do net know that this can be called weirs for every body knew that he was to have been there ere this. Bui perhaps some of our readers may uot know that he abandoned the “original programme” sud arrived there, not a week or a day. hut a few hours earlier than was anticipated. The time fur bis artWal.iu 'Washington was fixed at 4 o’clock, f. nu, on &*• uiday last, and be arrived, ikiere* by spe cial train, just twelve hoars earlier. The reasons assigned by some, are that the Fence Conference demanded bia immediate presence, —others say that he always had * penchant for nocturnal travelling.— whilst some have even dared to him that— that—the veteran commander of a frontier company entertained serious apprehensions uf heidfc iM>srinit~* in Baltimore. Which of these rumors is correct, we know wot. — the latter is believed te be true, —hot we do know, that we are more than ever ashamed ef our President elect.

If all the d*ve Suttee secede. and ’he Sncom-. 1 inr administration should undertake. in j 1 conformity with the wishes of it* *uppor- t tern, tu coerce them, the will be 1 practically a contest between Staffers, in ' 1 which one sidejwili seek to strengthen it self by using the name of the Federal. 1 Government; but the latter will hire-; 1 ality have no existence. M Da Toe QCtriLi.K long ago foresaw that sneb would be the result of any afcnomi dissen sions between any of the States and * the General Government. Wc commend hi* observations on this point to (fee at tention of our readers. The italic* arc ! ours; . 1 However strong a government may he. it cannot easily escape from the conse- 1 qurnees of a principle which it has once i admitted as the foundation of its coastings rion. The Union was formed by )Jc vobT untnry agreement of the States; and, in 1 1 uniting together, they have not forfeited 1 their nationality, tsar -have they icon rc*H duoed to the condition af otic and the \ same people. If one of the States chose , tv withdraw its name from the compact, ’ it would be difficult to disprove its right * of doing so; and the Federal Government 1 would have tio means of maintaining its 1 claim* directly, either bv force or by rgbt. In order to enable the Federal ' Government easily ic conquci the rcsis- 1 tance which may be off.rod to It by any one ' of its subject!, it would be necessary that. 1 one or more of them should be pjprciallv ! * interested in the existence of. the Union. 1 as has frequently foea the case in the bia lory of confederations. If It be supposed that among the States j 1 which are united hy the federal tie, there - 1 are some which c-x. luriv-ly ei.j*y the* 1 principal advantages wf urdoii, **r whos<* j i j.ft*sjrrity depend* *n ib* durstiuu of 1 that union, it is unquestionable that they J will always he many to support the ceil- !' tr*l g •TrrnmtQt in enforcing the uLcdi- 1 ci.ct of tin otht-rs. lint tit jortrmarn' 1 Would thm t r Ijo rtiuj a fin e* n*t drriretl ; 1 frinn itself . but from a pnneijile cant rarif . * to it* vat nee. States form confetti rations ;' in order to derive %qul advantage* fr.>in 'I their union; and in the ease just alluded \ \ t<, the Federal -Guvernuient would derive ! 1 its pewer from the unequal distribution 1 of those benefits among the States. J If one of the confederate States have j acquired a preponderance sufficiently | great to enable it to lake exclusive pos- ! session of the centra! authority, it will : ' consider iht other Siat*s as subject provin- ‘ cos. utni it in'll cause its own supivnutn/ I * t(j be resr.erted I h /u' tht huTTOlCtd lUIVU ‘ ' 'f the soitrr{<jn*y if the. f T nirm. Great ' things vtaj then be done in the “f the | 5 Federal Guvernrn* nt , but in reality that r Government will hare ceased in 1 both thesv cases, the power in : ( the name f the confederation becomes ; 1 stronger, the more it abandons the natur- | 1 al stale and the acknowledged principles j ' of confederation!). 1 1 S*i> Death of Mrs, Gacni.n.—We re-; 1 ccntly announced the sudden death of the ! * Hou.

The doctrine of the j Stale is thus set forth: •‘Personal rights are sacred, and it is, pre-eminently the function of the State, ! which concerns itself especially with it* 1 | domestic relations, to secure to its citi-; ! sens in their daily walk and eonversa- j | tion the free and quiet enjoyment of i their rights and liberties. When these rights aud liberties are endangered, from whatever cause, the State should provide every possible safeguard. Suppose that the federal government passes a law for the rendition of fugitives from service, ‘ which is so framed that it is extremely • liable to abuse, affording, under color of law, obvious facilities for the crime of 1 kid-napping, and exposing the frse citi-! tens of the State to a new peril. Iu 1 sash an event, can the State do noth ing consistently with its ftsyalty ts the constitution, and the laws mined hi pur suance thereof? Mny it not. while rc-; cogriiing the federal law, endeavor, for I the protection ot its own citizen’*, to
