and the bantling — I had like to have said the monster — sovereignty, which have taken such fast hold of the States individually, will, when joined by the many whose personal consequence in the line of State politics will, in a manner, be annihilated, form a strong phalanx against it. --Letter of Washington to John Jay, March 10, 1787, on proposed changes in the fundamental laws of the land.--Life of Jay, i. 259. See also, Two Lectures on the Constitution of the United States, by Francis Lieber, Ll. D. It defines, with proximate accuracy, the character of the Government under the old Confederation, which existed for eight or ten years before the National Constitution became the supreme law of the land; but it is clearly erroneous as applied to the Government which was founded on that Constitution in 1789. Instead of the National Government being a creation of the States as States, it is a creation of the people of the original thirteen States existing when the present Government w

olution of the Union. For the same reason, Lawrence M. Keitt favored a convention. I think, he said, it will bring about a more speedy dissolution of the Union. At this time the Union men of the State took measures for counteracting the madness of the disunionists. They celebrated the 4th of July by a mass meeting at Greenville, South Carolina. Many distinguished citizens were invited to attend, or to give their views at length on the great topic of the Union. Among these was Francis Lieber, Ll.D., Professor of History and Political Economy in the South Carolina College at Columbia. He sent an address to his fellow-citizens of the State, which was a powerful plea for the Union and against secession. He warned them that secession would lead to war. No country, he said, has ever broken up or can ever break up in peace, and without a struggle commensurate to its own magnitude. He asked, Will any one who desires secession for the sake of bringing about a Southern Confederacy, h

mmittee, as a signal-gun for the purpose mentioned in the text. announced the approach of a regiment or a company, would repair to the saloons, and, with the greatest cheerfulness, dispense the generous bounties of their fellow-citizens. These saloons, in which such an abounding work of love and patriotism had been displayed, were formally closed in August, 1865, when the sunlight of Peace was reilluminating the land, and the Flag of the Republic-- That floating piece of poetry, as Dr. Francis Lieber so appropriately called it in his song, Our country and flag, was waving, unmolested, over every acre of its domain. Philadelphia was also honored by another organization for the good of the volunteers, known as the Firemen's Ambulance System, which was wholly the work of the firemen of that city, who also contributed largely from their body to the ranks of the Union army. When sick and wounded soldiers began to be brought in transports from camps and battle-fields to Philadelphia,

ssion was to assist them with the power of arms in regaining their rights, of which .they had been so unjustly despoiled. Lee discoursed as fluently and falsely of the outrages inflicted by the generous Government which he had solemnly sworn to protect, and against which he was waging war for the perpetuation of injustice and inhumanity, In a speech at the raising of the National flag over Columbia College, in New York, immediately after the attack on Fort Sumter, in April, 1861, Dr. Francis Lieber admirably defined the character of soldiers like Robert E. Lee, who professed to believe in the State supremacy, but who had served in the armies of the Republic and deserted their flag. Men, he said, who believed, or pretended to believe in State sovereignty alone, when secession broke out, went over with men and ships, abandoning the flag to which they had sworn fidelity; thus showing that all along they served the United States like Swiss hirelings and not as citizens, in their mil

for a, similar purpose. Perceiving the general lack of knowledge of the laws of war, particularly as touching the subject of the, slaves of the country, Dr. Francis Lieber, the eminent publicist, suggested to General Halleck when he became-General-in-Chief, in July 1862, the propriety of issuing, in some form, a code or set of instructions on international rules of war, for the use of officers of the army. Dr. Lieber had already issued an important pamphlet on the subject of Guerrilla Warfare, which had attracted much attention. Halleck pondered the suggestion, and finally summoned its author to Washington City, when Secretary Stanton, by a general order, appointed a commission for the purpose, of which Dr. Lieber was chairman. Their labor resulted in the production of the celebrated code written by the chairman, which was published in April, 1863, by the War Department, as General order no. 100. It was a new thing in literature, and suggested to an eminent European jurist,

Our Country! Oh, that goodly land! Our noble country, whole and hale! We'll love her, live for her, or die-- To fall for her is not to fail. Our Flag! The Red denotes the blood We gladly pledge; the snowy White Means purity and solemn truth, Unsullied justice, sacred right. Its Blue, the sea we love to plough, That laves the Heaven-united Land, Between the old and older world, From strand, o'er mount and stream, to strand. The Blue reflects the crowded stars, Bright Union-emblem of the free; Come, every one, and let it wave, That floating piece of poetry. Our fathers came and planted fields, And manly law, and schools, and truth; They planted Self-Rule — we will guard By word and sword, in age and youth. Broad Freedom came along with them, On History's ever-widening wings; Our blessing this,
Richmond, July 26.--A few nights ago, at the great Union meeting in New-York, Dr. Francis Lieber, a renegade from his adopted State, South-Carolina, made a flaming speech, calling for the subjugation of the South. Two weeks before, his son, Charles Lieber, a brave confederate soldier, fell by a Yankee bullet, while charging a Yankee battery. His remains were sent to South-Carolina.--Richmond Dispatch, July 26.
al Congressional legislation on the prison question. The policies of the Governments were fixed very largely, as might be expected, by the Department of War, which issued orders for the care of prisoners. The army regulations provided, in a general way, for the prisoners taken by the Federals, but the circulars of instruction issued from the office of the commissary-general of prisoners formed the basis for most of the rules of the separate prisons. Later, the distinguished publicist, Francis Lieber, was selected to draw up rules for the conduct of armies in the field. These were published as General Orders No. 100, April 24, 1863, and constitute a long and minute code, including regulations for prisoners. The only general legislation of the Confederate Congress during the whole period of the war was an act approved May 21, 1861. It reads as follows: An act relative to prisoners of war approved, May 21, 1861 The Congress of the Confederate States of America do enact, T

Dr. Lieber had a very versatile mind, and whatever subject he grasped he handled it skilfully as a trained philosopher. In 1838 he published A manual of political Ethics,
