DARIEN, (GAJ MONDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1818.
FOR PUBLISHING, IN SAVANNAH,
A DAILY NEWSPAPER,
TO BE ENTITLED
EDITED BY J. M. HARNEY.
TS77IEN it is considered how extensive and powerful
T v an influence a free press possesses, in improv
ing or corrupting the morals; refining or vitiating the
taste; exalting or degrading the character; promoting
or counteracting the political welfare of a state; he,
who assumes the management of a public paper, is al
most overawed by the weight of resposibility he incurs.
Th people, mindful that the same responsibility de
volves on them, (inasmuch as a paper ow es its exis
tence to their patronage,) will require to be informed
of the character and object of TIIE GEORGIAN, be
fore they can feel justified in giving it their support.
In obedience to this just demand, tlie following expo
sition is candidly and willingly submitted.
The constitution of the l nited States should be the
text of every man’s political creed. We need not ran
sack the arcliives of Greece and Rome; nor, like Solon,
visit distant countries in search of political knowledge.
He is the best statesman, who best understands our con
stitution. It is tire master-piece—the ne plus ultra of
political wisdom. It is the rock on which we have
founded the temple of liberty: the rains have come,
and the w inds beat upon it, but it still stands. Certain
amendments of the constitution have been proposed,
by sincere patriots and enlightened statesmen, of both
parties. Their opinions ma be correct, and the right
to amend is unquestionable; yet it is to be dee pi} ‘re
gretted that the period of amendments is not past, as,
by creating a doubt of its perfection, they tend continu
ally to impair its sanciit}, and enfeeble its authority.
But let it never be forgotten, that the stabilit} and
perpetuity of a republic tioes not depend, exclusively,
on the excellence of its constitution. If the people,
(from w hose sovereignty emanates all authority—exec
utive, legislative and judicial) be not sufficiently cidight
ened to discern the wisdom; nor sufficiently virtuous to
appreciate the blessings of our government, they are
continually at the mercy of their delegated rulers. In
asmuch as the people are the supreme directors of po
litical affairs, they should at least be acquainted with the
constitution, w hich is the very foundation of their free
dom and the w arrant of their political sovereignt} .
The constitution ought to be considered an lnOispcnsi
ble branch of scholastic learning in ail the colleges and
schools of the United States. But how seldom do we
meet w ith this sacred compact; this estimable charter;
this palladium ot our liberty, except in the libraries of
lawyers and learned men! A republic may exist, long
after the corruption of its morals, but there is no ant,dote
against the benumbing and deadening effects of igno
rance. The book of Constitutions and the Bible should
occupy tlie same shell of tlie farmer, for, next to h:s
God, his country demands his consideration and love.
But is must be remembered, that it is necessary to fort*
tify the body politic not onl} against internal corruption
and disorder, but also to defend it against the enemies
by which .t is surrounded. Ihe tree of our liberty must
not only be able to stand alone, but, like the w ell-root
ed oak, to withstand the tempests of extraneous power.
As.our’s is the 01 J} republic on earth; as she has exalted
herseit in the nudst of governments which are naturally
and essentially her enemies, her permanent security
must depend on her physical strength. Hence the ne
cessity of na\ us and military forces. These slfßTffd be
just competent —not so great as to be dangerous to our
selves, nor so small as to be harmless to our enemies.—
In tnedio tiuissiinus ibis. On this subject the American
statesman Should exert the greatest sagacity anil circ.um
.spection. As real sovereignty consists in strength, the
sovereign people should retaiu-the power to rule in tiieir
ow n hands—hence a well organized, well disciplined
and well armed militia, is the safeguard of a repubhc,
tlie bulwark of its liberty.
When war is constitutionally declared, that man is an
enemy to his country, or at least a worthless friend, who
w ill not ;ud ihe administration in defending its honor
and independence. Our political existence is then assail
ed, and tlie weightiest matters of political controversy,
are nothing in comparison w ith that momentous stake.
After the enemy has struck a blow into the bosom of
our country, to hesitate is to be lost. We must not only
promptly contribute our personal, but also our pecunia
ry aid to the government. It is tine, a permanent sys
tem of direct taxes should never be resorted to—because
they are intrinsically odious to the people—because
they are vexatious, and oppressive—because they mul
tiply the unconditional supporters of. a ruling power,
and because they are unnecessary, inasmuch as our ordi
nary revenues are adequate to the supjroit of the ordina
ry expenses of our government. But when our country,
and all that is dear to freemen, is in imminent danger,
it would be a matter of astonishment if a citizen ofthis re
public, could ever object to a tax in any shape, or to anv
necessary amount. “Nam neque quies gentium sine ur
mis; neque arma sine stipendiis; neque stipendia sine -rni
nuTis h.iberi quaint” The bold and efficient taxation
of the people to support the expences of what has been
emphatically sty led the “second war of independence,”
w ill be held in perpetual memory, and imitated by fu
ture administrations, under similar circumstances. But
let it ever be (as it then was) the ultimo ratio of republi
So long as the existing administration maintains the
republican principles and pursues tlie judicious meas
ures which are now settled and acknowledged, it w ill
meet with the unanimous support of every true friend
to the country. The best efforts of the Georgian shall
be dedicated to the support of such principles, such
measures and such rulers. But let it be distinctly un
derstood, that the Georgian can never condescend to
become an unqualified adherent to any party. The in
terests of the people shall never be sacrificed to the am
bition of a few-.
Formally years past, this republic has been unhappi
ly divided into tw o parties, each of which has accused
tiie other of entertaining designs and pursuing meas
ures, ruinous to the welfare and dangerous to the lib
erties of the people. But all this time our country has
been marching, with giant strides, to wealth, grandeur
and renown; exhibiting an unparalleled example of pre
cocious greatness. In the very cradle of her infancy
she signalized herself by Herculean exploits—nay! she
sprang into existence, like Minerva from the head of
Jove, full grown at birth’ Whatever errors may have
been committed, we should be in a great measure re
conciled bv contemplating tlie present wealth, strength,
prosperity and glory of cur country. It would be im
proper to dismiss this subject, without adverting to l hr*
happy termination and glorious consequences of
war. It has produced a moral effect upor
which evi.-y .me sees an! fie . It ha., i

and rekindled the dying flame of our national glory—it
has harmonized political discord; conciliated, the am.no- !
sity of parties; cemented the union and friendship he- j
tween the sister states, and thereby consolidate! the 1
scattered fragments of our national energy, into one im
mense and irresistible mass of physical power. Our
government is no longer considered an experiment.
With regard to this state, the ulinos- abilities of
Georgian shall be, devoted to its wel.are. Ommcrcd •
and agriculture, which give to Georgia a distinguished
rank and importance in the union, shall be obj> of .
special attention—consequently, every species or ’
nal improvement which is calculated to advance the in
terests of either, w ill he regarded with a solicitous and
zealous eye. The improvement of our internal navigM
tion and the establishment of a hberal and enlightened
sy stem of education, are measures of the ‘highest mi*
portance to the welfare and reputation of Georgia, ail®
must be ardently recommended by every man wlft. ( tk

doing this, not only the interest of its inhabitants is efufl
