FROM HON. SAMUEL E. SEWALL.
V?r'ir fiir i I reyrel exceedingly thai I ran
liol attend in person tho cclchiatioii to com
uieiuorati! the rescue of Jeiry. I am happy,
however, to express in wrilinj.' my thluiira
tion of that ftlorious act. It is baldly neces
sary lor me to add that 1 concur emiiely in
tho views expressed hy the committee in
ibeir circular. J wish every ncm in the na
tion could be brought to sen their liireo.
It is? not uoeess uy, in -xamihin Ihe (ues
tion, w hether nv urn bound to obey the I'll
jjitivn Slnve Act, to theoiiz-j V:ry deeply on
tho oriftin or extent of tiio powers of (Jov
erumeiit. It cannot he disputed thai the law
of timl is as hiiniini; on overnmenti! as on
individuals, elunler, piracy, robbery, and
kidnapping, are crimes by the ctenutl and
immutable decree of the Omnipotent. No
legislation can make them otherw ise. Any
statute which enacts that such crimes shall
be lawful, lining n violation nf the higher
law, is null ami void. It is n manifest duty
to I'efusu lo aid in euliirciug it. And forcible
resistance to it, being always justifiable, be
comes sometimes mi insert duty.
Judges on the bench, being, equally with
private persons, subject lotlic moral law, are
hound even mole imperatively, if it ho poss
ible, than tlioso not in ol'.ice. to tiroiiouiicn
ntntmcs wbicb require tho commission of
crimes null anil void. Imleetl, it seems
strung" to me, that Judges who do not hesi
tate lo declare ads ol Congress void because
they . violate the Constitution, should yet
shrink from declaring thu nullity uf uslalule,

And for another icisoii, I ask you to insert
this potest. I am notified to be in Albany,
Tuesday morning of next weak, at li

fir tdleged aid ill the rescue of the man

ihe Fugitive I,aw under loot, because il is
Piracy, Mid lor no other reason. 1 .do not
vi. 11 stop to eiiquiiu ivbeiucr thu Piracy is
endorsed by or embodied in Ihe Constitution.
To make 11 man a slave, is Piracy ; and in
attempting or commanding' it, our Govern
ment is tin outlaw is clcaily distinctly, be
yond the pale of law, is hii,:iilid in its char
acter, ami in lo be regarded, iii till respects,
every otlu-r form of Frec.-bootiug, m'jiln
laiuling, and of Piracy, is regarded, w liereyer
men protend to talk of Right nml Wrong ns
distinctions. My doctrine is, that iu the man
Jerry lire and ere concentrated a! 1 tho. rights
the human)' family; ihalthe Kiglits i.f any
ouo man nre equal to the High's' of any other
man; that I luy arc incapable of muhiplica
tion; and that, llureliue, ihe 1 i:;bts of the
man Jerry were equal lo Ihe Uigbts of all the
people of the United Slates. Now', for oth
ers to couihine. to deprive' Jerry 'of those
F.qiud Higbts or r.ilher of their exercise
by Jiirce, is Piraticai. : it is, essentially,. and
'per ?," Piracy. Now, am 1 culled on In say

This admission,-from one Mho denounces
