Letter from H. Winter Davis,
1ULTIM03K, Mu., June C, 18CJ.
Drab Sin: I have followed, with
iiilorcnt and aniiin snrriiiMo tint
courao of arguincnt. in opposition to the
Their oiipiiiipiitfl gbfm inclined to trifle
with the people, er clue they hate for
gotten tlio Rirnpleit elementi of Uw.
1 observe that some respectable lawyers
confound the confiscation bills with bills
of attainder or of powers and penalties
Congress is rightfully forbidden to pass
a bill of attaindr; and I would forever
maintain that inhibition, lint w hat is a
bill of attainder?
It is a law performing the ollicc of a
judgment. It is a legislature doing the
work of a ladge. It is an act of Congress
or of Parliament, declaring particular
person ciiilty of a ripeciiied act, mnl or
dering his punishment. The passage of
the law places I he person just where a
conviction ami judgment of court places
him nothing remains but execution.
Il is ridiculous ( call Iho bills before
Cougtcss bills of attainder. They havo
bo one of tho penalties of a bill of at
tainuer, and tho word can be applied to
them in no sense ever recognixt'ti in
law-book. They who do so apply the
word, are either ill-infornieil or invoke i
prejudice to do the work of argument.
1 lie bills before Longres name no pnr
ticulur persons, therefore they punish
nobody. Ihey declare that certain acts,
committed after their passage, shall be
punished by confiscation; but, till the
act is committed, no one can be declared
guilty of it ; they do not, therefore, at
taint any one. A billot attainder relates
to the past, and nothing but punishment
remains after ils passage. The bills be
fore Congress relate to the future 'de
clare the future consequences of future
acts, and leave both the person and Hie
fact to be ascertained after the law, de
claring the punishment, shall have passed.
What excuse is there to confound such
a law with a bill of attainder? a legis
lative judgment on a past act w ith a leg
islative penalty on a liiture act i
Iho same gentlemen invoke against the
bills the! clause of the constitution which
declares that " Congress shall have power
to declare the punishment of treason; but
no atlaiihlrr of treamm shall work corrun-
tton or blood or forfeiture, except during
the life of the person attainted." I'.ul
what has that clause to do with laws
w hich confessedly provide for cnnlisca
tion without conviction of the person for
treason. The most plausible objection
to tho confiscation laws is that Ihey don4
make the loi leitiiie ilepeutleiit on a pn
viotis conviction ; it is therefore clear lliat
the clause w hich defines the consc iiuen
cea of a ronvidinn of the lvrson can have
no bearing oil a law which, prescribes other
uioili'8 of ascertaining and enforcing
forfeiture. It may be that those methods
are forbidden, and if so, the law must
fail of execution ; but it is irrelevant to
loiole a rule of judgment defining and
limiting the consequences of a conviction
for treason against a law w hich content
plates neither conviction nor judgment for
It is certain that Congress can pass no
law whereby a person convicted of treason
cau be .sentencM to forfeit his property
beyond his life, as a consequence of tho
conviction, pun h a law would be void.
Kuch a judgment would vest no title in
the Government, and tho heirs of the
ow ner could eject any one claiming hia
properly untler the l nitetl htates.
lint tho provision tlocs not say Congress
shall not make forfeiture the penally
any act, nor even that Congress may no
make toi tnlnre penalty of treason it
self; it merely says that forfeiture be
yond the life shall not be one of tho con
sequences of a conviction of tho iifrion for
Now, the pending bills do not connect
confiscation and conviction of the person
for any crime, still less for treason.
This claim, therefore, whatever it mean
and whatever be its cited, has no relation
to bills such as those reported by Mr.
Klliol. Thtit claim does not prove Mr.
Kllot'a bill to be unconstitutional.
Is there any other clause of the eonsti
tution whleh forbids stn h legislation?
It seems to me the lawyers are especi
ally at fault when tin y refer to the pro
vision relating to the trial of all crimes
No person can lie convicted of anr
crime hut by a jury; but these bills do
not contemplate aoy conviction of any
person any proceeding againnl the jn-r-snu
titill less can any argument bo ili-dm ed

Ac; " nvr be deprived of life, liberty, or
property without due plot ess of law;"
for no one is ' held to iiint r" under
these laws at all; an. I the questien is
whether this mode ol' depiiviug them of

There arc various processes of law for
lepriving persons of life, liberty and
property; and one method does not ex
clude another method, but each is good
iu its particular case, while some are for
bidden and therefore are unconstitutional
in all cases. A bill of attainder and au
fx Jii' to law are lorniutien. -o person
can be held to answer lor any crime, un
less on the presentment of a grand jury,
nor tried otherwise than by a jury of the
ISIate and district. If, therefore, Con
gress pius a bill of attainder against Jef
ferson Davis, or should enact that a court
of admiralty should try and convict for
murder, without a jury, or indictment by
a grand jury, that law would be unetm
stitutional, for it is forbidden. It is a
trial and lomvi, tioit without tine process
of law, and death under it is murder, and
imprisonment under it is an illegal viola
lion of the liberty of the citizen. Pu t
it would bo a gross error to gay that no
one can bo deprived of liberty or life
otherwise than under criminal prosecu
tion, for then the President has murdered
many men in the field, and enslaved many
men in the military prisons. For men in
)', a bullet is due process of law; seiz
ure by military power is due process of
law; they are aot conviction, nor trial,
nor punishment of the iKVmv.-'thcy as as
suredly deprive them of life or of lib
erty as a conviction and sherill, and
they are just as legal as conviction and
So there are methods of depriving per
sons of property which are not connected
with criminal proceedings againso the
prrum, and provisions which define the
mode of proceedings against the person,
and limit the consequences of such pro
ceedings, have no relation to processes of
law not against (he permn, whieTi yet do
deprive the person of his property.
Taxation deprives tho person of his
property, not by any judicial process,
but by au administrative process yet it
is a process of law, essential to the exis
tence of the government. It is just as
rational to quote the prohibition against
taking private property for public use,
without compensation, to prove tbe un
constitutionality of taxation, as to invoke
the prohibitions against making confis
cation a consequence of conviction, to
prove that there could be no confiscation
w ilhout conviction.
.If tuxes be not paid, the failure is fol
lowed by seizure and sale, without judi
cial process; for a small amount of taxes
a largo estitto may be sold; and that is
a consequence annexed to the illegal act
of failing to pay the amount assessed.
Not iinlreqiieutly a per centage is added
lor delay, and levied Willi lli principal
of the tax itself. When the sherilTor the
marshal, or the collector, sells the pro
perty for taxes, that is due process of
tw, and the change of property is in the
nature of a penalty, and the expenses of
the proceedings are veritable forfeitures
for illegal acts.
It is, therefore, a wholly unfounded as
sumption that property is liable to be
taken tor the delimit of the owner only
upon or after conviction for au offense by
jury and conrl. Vet it is this confusion
between criminal proceedings against the
person ii ml proceedings against properly
because of a person's acts which alone
lends plausibility to the argument against
the confiscation bills.
liut po far from being a new method of
proceeding, intended to evade the securi
ties thrown around the person against
criminal prosecutions, it is one of thu
oldest forms of proceeding know n to our
The slightest examination of the rev
eiiuo laws of the I'nitetl Slates will show
thai, from the foundation of the govern
ment, forfeitures for illegal acts have al
ways been enforced in the courts, Irres-
prt tive of tbe conviction or prosecution
of the guilty person. The fact has been
investigated by the Judge w ithout jury,
and the confiscation enforced for eighty
years, without any one dreaming that
citizens were being punished without
either grand or petit jury.
Tho act of IV '.I'J declares goods entered
untler fraudulent invoices shall be for

ihe precedents of the slave trade laws
are of special interest, in relation to Ihe

United Stales ; still less would il tolerate
the exemption of this species of proper

attach to any prnjierty of the rebels.
Slave property is the pretext of tho re
bellion and the chief instrument by which
the revolutionists have coerced submis
sion to their will. Sound policy requires
thai a wcaixiii of such pow er be broken
or wrested from the hands of Ihe enemies
of the government, and nothing ought to
aires! tho blow but the plain prohibit ions
of the Constitution; for subordination to
the supreme law is the condition of na
tional existence. Fortunately its wise
provisions strip Ihe government ol no
power which a lice government ought to
wield ; least ot all docs it lorlud the con
fiscation of slaves, and emancipation is
nn inseparable incident of ownership. Of
course, they who call confiscation laws
lulls of attainder, will call emancipation
of confiscated slaves abolition of slavery
in the Stales by Congress. Hut no loyal
people will confound the release of the
government's title in the slaves confisca
ted, with a prohibition against holding
any slave in the Slate.
lint Mr. 1. 11 ml t sbill is in one particu
lar wholly indefensible. It violates all
Constitutional principles of American
law in requiring persons lo prove their
innocence. It places the title to negro

involve every principle now assailed in
tho confiscation bills from the conHsca
tioti of properly for criminal ads of tho
owner, without conviction of the guilty
person, by process of law against the
thing, and not against the person, to the
freeing of slaves for the violation of law
by Iheir owners.
II is therefore frivolous to assail these
laws on the ground of iiiicoiinlitulioiiali
ly. If '(".' prim iple is settled by the
uiiiforiii piadn e of the government, it is
this prim iple of conlisi ation lor crimin

the guilty person.
This it-view of congressional enact

of these laws. Tiny treat Ihe precedents
of llm founders of the govt rniueiit w ith
no inose respect than Ihey di Ihe const i

the bills are plausible only when the

It is (piite certain that the restriction
of confiscation iu consequence of con
viction ami attainder to the life of the
person convicted, is not restricted to lands
and still more certainly has no reference
lo estates tail. They were liable at colu

their form of conditional feea, though
singularly enough a distinguished Sena

empted for a while by the construction
of the statute, "De doiiis coudilional
ibtis;" but lost their exemption in tho
reign of Henry VIII.
Such attempts to escape a Conslifuti
lutional dillii-ully merely discredit all
defense of the conliscation bills.
Thu Constitution means just what it
says; and the opponents of confiscation
try to make it mean what it does not say.
