was-formed in fact, by the articles cf as
hutiaiion in 1774. It was mati;rd and
.riiiiinued 'fry 'the Declaration-of Indepen

. was to form a Ynoro perfect Union.' If
soparatioa ly one or a part only of the
. State, ho lawfully osiLIe, t!ie Union is
less 'than before the ! Constitution, having
lo;t the vital element of perpetuity.'
It 'follows, from theee views, that no

iha United States. 'arc insurrectionary or
revoiutiotrary, according to circumftancjs.
I therefore consider, that, in view of the
Constitution and laws, the -.Union 'is un
brokcn.nrrd to the extent of my ability,
rhall take care, as the Constitution itself
expressly enjoins, that the laws of the
Uaion be faithfully executed in all the
States. Doing this I deem only to be a
t-rmple duty on my part; and I shall per
form it, so far as practicable, unless my
rightful masters the American People
shall .withold the -requisite mean?, cr in
some authoritative manner direct to the
contrary. I irust that this will not be re
garded as a menace, but only as declared
purpose of Union, that it will constitution
ally defend and maintain itself. In doing
ihjf, there need be no bloodshed cr vio
lence, and there shall be none unless it be
forced upon 'the national authority. -The
jovor confided to me will be used to hold
occupy and posters the ptoperty and pla-
' tcs belonging to the Government, to cel
led duties on imports, but beyond what
'maybe necessary fur these objects, there
ivill be no using cf force against or among
people ''anywhere. Where hostility to the
United State in any interior locality shall
Le fo great and universal as to prevent
competent resident citizens from holding
lVd'tral offices, there will be no attempt
to force obnoxious strangers among the
people who object. While the strict le
&al right may exist in the Government to
".enforce the exercise of these officers, the
attempt to do so would be so irritating,
and j. nearly impracticable withal, that I
. C.eem it better to forego for the time, the
tise'o'f .such officers. The mails, unless
repelled, will continue to be furnished in
all points of the Union. So far as possi
U the people everywhere shall have that
tensc of personal security which is most
favorable to cahn thought and reflection.
. ".The course here indicated will be ful
. lowed, unless current events and experi
ences shall show a modification or chancre
u be proper, and ia every case and exi
gency my bett discretion wilt be exercised,
according to circumstances actually exist-'
ing and with a view and a hope of the
peaceful solution of the national troubles
and the restoration of fraternal sympathies
and affections. That there are persons
in one section or another who seek to de-
vtroy the Union at all events, and are glad
tf any pretext to do it, I will neither af
firm nor deny. I need address no word
lo those who really love the Union. May
' i'sp?ak before entering npn so. grave a
natter a? the destruction of our national
fabricwith all its benefits, its memories
and hopes? ' Would it not be wise to as-
certain previously why we do hazzard so
desperate a -step while there is any possi
bility that any portion of the ills you fly
from have, no real existence. Will you,
while tire certain ills you fly to are great
er than nil the real ones you- fly from,
will you risk the commission of so fearful
a mistake? All profess to be content in
the Union if all constitutional rights can
- be maintained.
' ' Is it true then, that any right plainly
written in the Constitution has beenueni

mind is so constituted tbat no party can
reach to the audacity cf doing this, Think
if you can," of a single instance in which a
"plainly written prorision of the' Constitu
tion has ever been denied.
' If by thf mere force of numbers a ma
jority shall deprive n minority of any
clearly 'written constitutional riglit, it may
a a moral point of view, justify a revolu
tion. It certainly would if such a aright
were a vital one, but such is cotourense.
All the vital rights of minorities and of
individuals, and so plainly assured to them
by affirmations and negations, guarantees
and. prohibitions in the Constitution that
.controversies never arise concerning thiim.
But no 'organic law can be framed with a
provision specifically applicable to every

and always changing easily, with the de

' sentiments, i3 the only true sovereign of a
free people. Whoever rejects it does of
I necessity fly to anarchy an J despotism,"
Unanimity is impossible. The rule of la
minority, as a permanent arrangement, is
wholly inadmissible. So that rejecting
the' majority principal, anarchy and des
potism, in some form, is all that is It ft.
I do not forget the position assumed by
some, that constitutional questions are to
be decided by the Supreme Cuurt; nor do
I deny that such decisions must be Had
ing in ary case upon the parties to a suit,
as to the object to a suit, while 'they are
also entitled to very high respect and con
sideration in all parallel cases, by all oth
er departments of the Government, and
while it is obviously possible that such de
cision' may. be errcneo is in any given case,
still, the evil elllct following it being lim
ited tojh it particular case, with the chance
that it may be overruled and never be
come a precedent for other cases, cm
better he. bcrn thati could the evils of a
different practice. .
At the same time, the candid citizen
must confess, that if the policy of the Gov
ernment upon vijabqnestions affecting the
wholo people are to be irrevocably, fixed
by the decision of the Supreme Court, the
instant they are made in ordinary litiga
tion between parlies in personal actions,
the people will hare ceased to be irmir
own rulers, having to that extent practic
ally resigned their government iuto the.
hands of. that tribunal. Nor is there in
this view any assault upon the Court or
the Judges. It is a duty from which they
may not shrink to decide cases properly
broaghl before them, cud it is no fault cf
theirs, if.others seek to turn their decis
ions to political purposes. One section of
our country believes is right and ought to
be extended, while the other believes it
is wrong, and-ought not to be extended.
This is the only substantial dispute, for
the, fugitive slave clause of the Constitu
tion, and the laws for the suppression of
llie foreign slave trade arc each as well
enforced perhaps as any law can ever be.
In a community where a moral sense of
the people imperfectly supports the law
itself, the great body cf the people abide
by the dry legal obligation in both cases.
After the separation of the two sections",
the foreign slave trade now imperfectly
suppressed, would be ultimately revived
without restriction in cue section, while
fugitive slaves now only partially surren
dered would hot be surrendered ar all by
the other. -
Physically speaking, we cannot separ
ate, cannot remove , cur respective'-" sec
tions from each other, nor build an im
passable wall between "them. The hus
band and wife may be divided, and go out
of the prcsenca and beyond the reach of
each other, but the diJerent parts of our
country cannot do this. They cannot but
remain, face to face, and an intercourse,
either amicable or. hostile, must continue
betvvced " them. Is it possible then to
make that intercourse more tdvantagcous,
or more satisfactory, after separating than
before? Can aliens make treaties easier
than friends can make laws?' Can treat
ies be more faithfully enforced between
aliens than laws among friends?- Sup
pose yon go to war: you cannot ight al
ways, and when, after much loss on both
sides, there is no gain on either,' you
cease to fight, the old identical questions
a3 to terms of intercourse are again upon
This country wuh its institutions belong,
to the people who inhabit it. '
Whenever they shall grow weary of
the existing government they can exer
cise their Constitutional right of amend
ing it, or their revolutionary right to dis
member or overthrow it. I cannot be ig
norant of the fact, that many. worthy and
patriotic citizens are desirous, of having
the National Constitution amended.
While I make no recommendation of
amendmentt, I fully recognize the right
ful authority of the people over the whole
subject, to be exercised in either of the
modes prescribed in the instrument itself,
and I should, under existing circumstcn
ces, favor, rather than oppose a fair op
portunity being offered the people to act
upon it. .
I will venture to add thot the constitu
tianal mode seerm preferable, inasmuch
a3 it allows the amendment to originate
with the people themselves, instead only
cf permitting them to lake or reject a
proposition originated by others not spec
ially chosen for the purpose and which
might not be precisely such as they would
wish to either refuse cr reject. '
I understand o proposed amendment to
the Constitution, which amendment, how
erer, I have not seen, hag passed Con
gress, to the effect that the Federal Gov
ernment shall never interfere with the
domestic institutions of the States, inclu
ding that of persons held to service. To
avoid a misconception of what I have said,
I degart from my purpose to speak of par
ticular amendments, so far'as to say, that
holding such a provision to the now im
plied Constitutional law, I have no objec
tions to its being made irrevocable. The
Chief Magistrate derivesall his authority
from the people, an i they have conferred
none upon him to fir forms for the separ
ation of the Stat?3. " The people them-
j selves can do this also if they choose, but
! the executive, as such, has nothing to do
with it. His duty is to administer and
preserve the Government as it came to
his hands and to transmit it unimpaired by
him to his successor.
Why should there not be a patient con
fidence in the ultimate justice of the peo
' pie. Is there any better or equal hope in

Nothing valuable can be lost by taking

of you as are cow dissatisfied still have
the old Constitution unimpaired, and, on
the sensitive point, the laws of your own

it would, to change either. If it were
admitted that you who are dissatisfied held

TiKi President's Message.
To-day we place -before " our readers
the President's Message. , We regret
not being able to do so sooner. It was
receieved here by telegraph on the even
ing of. the. ,4th; but owing to the sick
ness of two or three of our office hands,
it was impossible to put it into type for
next morning's Bulletin.
The. following general dispatch from
Washington, immediately after the de
livery of the inaugural will convey some
thing cf an idea how' the message was
received there by friends of the Union of
all parties ;
'The opening sentence of the inaugu
ral, Fellow-citizens of the United States
was the signal for prolonged applause,
the Union sentiment thereof, striking a
tender , chord in the popular breast.
Again, when, after defining certain ac
tions to be his duty, he said, "And I shall
perform it," there was a spontaneous and
uproarcus manifestation of applause,'
which continued for some moments.
-: Every sentence which indicated firm
ness in the Presidential chair, and every
statement of a conciliatory nature was
cheered to the echo ; while his appeal to
his dissatisfied fellow-countrymen, desir
ing them to reflect calmly, and not hur
ry into false steps, was welcomed by one
and all most heartily and cordially.
The closing sentence upset the water
ing pot of many of his hearers, and, at
this point alone, did the . melodious voice
of the President elect falter. Judge Ta
ney did not remove his eyes from Lincoln
during the entire delivery. Douglas who
stood by the right of the railing was ap
parently satisfied, as he exclaimed, sot
coercion," and "Good again!" .
Judge Taney was the first person who
shook hands with Mr. Lincoln, and he
was followed by Mr. Buchanan, Messrs.
Chase, Douglas and others.
A Southern gentleman scizedl him by
the hand, and said : 'God bless you, my
dear sir, you will save us." To which
Lincoln replied: 'I am very glad that
what I have said causes pleasure to oth
ers, because then I know they are pleas
ed with' what is right."
At this point, Gov. King, and many in
fluential New Yorkers, Governors Hop
pin and Sprague, of Rhode Island, Buck
ingham of Connecticut, and the entire
Cabinet of the outgoing Administration,
shook him by the hand..
While conservative people are in rap
tures ever the message, it cannot be de
nied that many Southerners look upon it
as a precursor of war. They will prob
ably take a cabiier view to-morrow.
Mr. Weed is delighted with it, but Mr
Wigfall publicly declared it 'a most mis
erable paper." Its conciliatory tone and
frank, outspoken declaration of loyalty to
the whole country, captured the hearts of
many heretofore opposed to Mr. Lincoln,
and its firm enunciation of purpose to
fulfill his oath to maintain, the Constitu
tion and laws, challenges universal re
spect. . . '
It is certainly as mild, conservative,
and peaceful ia its character as it could
possibly be, unless his position should
have 'been to surrender the country to
disunion traitors. If we have a govern
ment its la.vs must be enforced ; and it
is no less treason .to surrender, than to
resist their enforcement. The people cf
the United Slates will sustain any Exec
utive, of whatever party he may be, in
the .enforcement of laws and preserva-
; tion of. the Constitution.
net vacillate. It now only remains for
the people to sustain him ia doing right,
and all will te saf?;. no doubt about that.
Of the Inaugural tha St. Louis Repub
lican Dem.J says:
So far as Missouri and the Border
States are concerned, we have to say, that
the positions assumed in the Inaugural as
those which will be maintained and act
ed on by tho Administration, remove to
a great extent, ie caiises of the anxiety
which has been felt by them, and do not
furnish k any sense, a justification - for
secessim from the. Union. Under the
solemnity cf ah oath to cbserve the' Con
stitution and faithfully to execute all its
provisions and the laws enacted under it;
with a: pledge? thai? the Fugitive Slave
Law shall be executed in all the'States,
so far a3 he ran. give. it efficiency, with
all fidelity and this is the only real
ground of complaint which we have ever
had against the General Government, in
this State; with -the full find explicit ac
knowledgement of the President, that he
does not desire and will not make war on
any one of the seceding States, unlessfur
causes wholly1 beyond his control, every
man who loves his Country, and is anx
ious that the Union should be preserved,
will at least, give him a fair trial give
him time to satisfy the .world that he is
honest in his declarations, and ' that he
means to avoid any act liable to bring
with it civil war, and all its brood of evils.
In every part of his address, this idea
seems to bo uppermost in his mind ; and
we. as public journalists, accustomed . to
try public' men by the' standard which
they may set op for themselves, are wil
ling to accord to the President this privi
lege.. . IIe; is .entitled to it as an act of
justice " ','',,
The whole address", we are- bound to
say, (with a full reccollection of the zeal
with which we1 opposed his election,) is
conceived in excellent temper, is intended
to conciliate the people; of the States in
which his election was most violently op
posed, and to assure them that their rights
will be strictly protected and observed.
Let .us recieve it in-the same temper.
- : Anotlier "Sescsli." -
Look out -for South Carolina; she'll
soon be on another - seceding expedition.
The Washington ' Star Dem. says:
"The Charleston JtieTcury has given us in
a letter from the notedsecessionist, L.W.
Spratl, an insight into the motives from
which secession originated and the kind
of security which - it was intended to in
augurate.' ' ' ' ,;';
Mr. Spratt complains cf the insertion
in the Constitution of the Southern Con
federacy of the provision prohibiting the
African Slave trade. '.He says in so ma
ny words: "If the clause be carried into
the permanent" Government our whole
movement is ' defeated."
This is a direct admission, that the re
riewal of the African slave-trade was
the first object of secession, on which de
pended all subsequent advantages which
were expected .to'; flow from it. And
what were these anticipated advantages?
Mr. Spratt tells us: They were to intro
duce slaves enough to perform all the la
bor of society, mechanical as well as ag
ricultural, and produce a community com
posed entireh of masters and slaves. All
free labor was to be driven out of the
confederacy, and negro slaves were to
take the place of white mechanics and
laborers now so 'extensively employed in
the slaveholding States.
, So intent is Mr. Spratt on carrying
out the South Carolina theory of a com
munity composed only of masters and
slaves, that he distinctly threatens "an
other revolution" in case the prohibition
shall be made permanent, which he says
"may be painful,' but we must make it."
So we are to be dragged into a round of
revolutions by this little State, to last un
til she has opened the African slave
trade, driven free labor from her bor
ders, and exhibited to the world a com
munity composed wholly of masters and
slaves !.; ' -:--'
- Men of common sense are beginning
to think that a lntle "coercion" applied
to this refractory State may after all be
of use in preserving the future peace of
the country." ' .
The Keign'of Terror.
As. further evidence that a reign of
terror exists in the Southern Confeder
acy, we copy the. following from the Co
lumbus Ga.j 'Times :
A word of Caution. Persons residing
in the "Confederate States of America,"
who still consider themselves citizens of
the "United States," would do well not
to make public their professions of alle
giance. Georgia has not only spoken but
"acts" in this matter,1 and the time for
toleration of all such idiosyncrasies ha3
well nigh, expired. If any of her citi
zens cannot find it in their hearts to sym
pathize with . her conduct and position,
they had better find shelter in a more
congeneal latitude, or remaing, hold their
peace. They may find out that the above
is good advice, . -
Another Southern paper says : .
'.'So far as the people of Georgia are
concerned, the yoke was imposed on them
against the will of a majority of ten
thousand in electing the Convention that
imposed it. And-to this hour they (the
people of Georgia have never been
permitted to vote on the question .wheth
er they are willing to bear; the yoke of
the usurping olfgarchy, or not."
A Thief Huns by the AlsII
Committee at Omaha.
The Louisville Journal says it hopes
"the sccceding States will be coerced,

It appears that the house of Mr. Tay
lor, at the crossing cf the Papillion, ras
robbed not long since by a couple cf per
sons afterwards identified by Mr3. Tay
lor. While in jail the parties confessed
having perpetrated the robbery. They
were taken before the Vigilance Com
mittee, wlien a decision was made that
Bouve should be hung ; and Her, the con
federate, set free, from the fact that he
had taken but little part in the robbery,
and had prevented. .Bouve from murder
ing Mrs. Taylor.
Bouve stated in his confession that
there was a regularly organized !gang cf
thieves extending from various points cn
the Misoou'ri to 'the mountains, and if
present troubles continued to such an ex
tent as to draw the troops from the fron
tier forts, they would organize into a
grand gurilla band and sweep the plains.
The Bulletin Telegraph Reports.
We know that many feel as we do ;
lost, almost, without cur regular tele
graph reports. ' But the fact ia, they are
two expensive a luxury for these hard
times. Durinsr the two months and a-half
that we published tho Daily Bulletin, we
are out of pocket S-5S.25, and this, too,
while a few of. our enterprising and lib
eral citizens were subscribing very lib
erally from S2 to 85 per month. And
now as to regular reports for our paper ;
we cannot afford it.' Ihe times are so
exceedingly oppressive that it is with the
greatest difficulty, and exercise of the
most rigid economy, that we are able to
keep our establishment in motion. Hope
with us is strong, and we continue to look
for the "better times coming," we 4read
of." But for this, we should feel inclin
ed to "suspend" until times become bet
Since the Telegraph has been in op
eration to this point, we have spent some
two hundred dollars for reports, and we
are not aware that we, have received a
single new subscriber or a dollar's worth
of patronage in any way, in consequence
thereof. We like to keep up with the
spirit of the age,"and believe those who
know us best will give us the credit of
ever being awake to every enterprize in
which our young and thrifty city is in
any way interested. W e hope our pat
rons will consider the foregoing a valid
excuse for the suspension of the Daily
Bulletin, and the publication of regular
telegraph reports in our weekly issue.
Wre will eadeavor to give our rea
ders the "news of the day," as received
by the mails in such a manner as we
hope may prove satisfactory, and will in
dulge the belief that the day is not far
distant when we will be justified in fur
nishing our readers with a Daily Advertiser.
Democratic papers and speakers arc
making a great noise just now about "Pa
cific Railroads," and "Homesteads." Our
neighbor of the News says :
' "How is it ? The Republican leaders
have boasted and promised that as soon as
they got into power the? people should have
a Pacific Railroad ; a Free Homestead ;
and sundry and divers other praiseworthy
and desirable institutions. Well ! throogh
the insane folly of the seceeding States,
the Republicans have both the Senate
and the House, and yet we hav'nt any of
those valuable things.
That 'is strahgej and unpardonable on
the part cf the "rascally Republicans 1"
But then, it must not be forgotton that
all these are "pet measures," too, with
the Democracy, and that they have had
all power for the past eight consecutive
years and nine-tenths of "all time" be
fore and yet "we hav'nt any of these
valuable institutions!" "How is it?"
Yancy, and others of that stripe of
traitors, proclaimed their object to be, to
"fire the Southern heart." From the
way things already begin to look among
the people in the seceeding States, we
rather guess they will find, in the end
the Southern heart fired" to their sor
row. They, will find "coercion" being
exercised by those whom they have de-

at present lo Le in statu quo. If they
can be kept so for any reasonable length
of time, we confidently believe jeice
and harmony will be restored. The
condition cf the country, howerer, is
very much like unto a sick patient. To
day it may be improving-, and the hopes
of a speedy recovery bright. To-morrow
the symptomj may change, and a de

The "precipitators" who appear to
think they have gathered up the Cotton
States, as it were, under their arms and
run out of ihe Union, with them, talk
about the peoph declaring for secession
through the ballot box ! The people have,
in those States, had precious little to say
about the matter. We opine, however,
they will yet "speak on the occasion,"
and when they do stand from under, ye
"The Wat 'it Commenced." The
Postal Committee of the new Confeder
acy propose to abolish all post oflices not
self sustaining; raise the letter postage to
10 cents; double the postage on printed
matter, and abolish the franking privi

the people in the ,;C. S. A."
