In view of these fiicts, wo nro glad to sec

justice must nlwnys be its object. Mr.
t'poonnr in this disciision adheres to bis
previously expressed opinion tlmt low is but
another name for justice. Tlmt injustice
never luis been or enn be inndo Inw. The
trinl by jury, is tho institution of common
luw, nnd the "iiticiunt common luw juries
were courts of conscience." Tlmt it wns
their Inijincbs to secure justice, anil to this
end they were nlike the judges of the evi

by tho definition of jury trinl ns defined by
May 1111 Chnitn, as deduced from its history
nnd its language, us well tis from the past
centuries of practice under iu Proceeding
upon this principle lie pronounces the judg

An argument on tho Fugitive Slave Act, Hy
Thomas U. Talbot of tho Cumberland Pur,
Maine. Ihiston, Iicla Marsh, No. 24 Cprnhill,
1852, p. 12S.
Wo arc indebted to the Tuhlisher for copy
of this original and truly ablo and interesting
work. The author proceeds without circumlo
cution, to inquire what ia tho constitutional
provision in regard to fugitive slaves what arc
tho statuto provisions and what tho decisions.
Ho takes the position thut the rendition i to bo
mado in tho Stato to which tho fugitive has
escaped nnd i an absoluto delivery of prop
erty, to tho claimant in tho labor and person n.
the fugitive. Ilia right to the slave, is without
limitation. Decision of the Court aro quoted
sustaining this point Ex. Judis Story, who
declare that tho elauso of the constitution
places the master's right on the same ground,
and to tho (anio extent in every other state, as
in the stato from whence ho escaped, and that
tho master has tho right of recapture, precisely
as under the local laws of his own stato and
further that ho has the right of removal from
and through tho free states ss in his own slavo
state. In short that tho rendition article, con
tcmplatcd the extension of slavo stato laws
over tho entire Union, in tho coso of tho fugi
tivo his delivery to his claimant at property
with all tho rights attendant upon its posses
sion while removing him.
Having thu asccituincd tho requisitions of
tho constitution, tho writer proceeds to compare
the lute fugitive act therewith, and pronounces
it unconstitutional because it falls short of the
requisition. Granting, not the delivery of the
slavo at property, (the olc right conferred by
the constitution,) but only tho right of removal,
a right unconferrcd in tho constitution, except
as embodied in tho right of property. Again
it Is unconstitutional inasmuch a it return the
fugitivo at tho expense of the government. It
being solely tho business ol tho master. A
beautiful confusion and conflict, the writer hero
presents, not only between the act and the con
stitution, but between Judge on tho one hand,
and Judge and Commissioners on the other.
Tho act of 1850, and its interpreters and ex-
cutors, set asido the constitutional provision,
not without cause. For though it gave tho
master what ho claimed, his right of property,
and inclusively, Ins right of removal, yet iu
the face of an opposing publio scntimont, and
in the absence of Massachusetts law for the safe
custody and return of Thomas Sims, his claim
ant had rather a hard task, to return him to
Georgia. To aid slavery in that emergency,
Commissioner Curtis and Judgo Sprague, af
firmed that tho master's right, conferred by tho
act was not ono of " absolute proporty," but a
right to hare Aim returned to Ueoria, at the pub-
tic eiptntt. Thus economically avoiding all
difficulty and any amount of danger. It is duo
to the author to ay that he attribute this rath
er to tho carelessness of Congress, than to in
tention, inasmuch as tho set provides in one
section for tho delivery in tho state from whenco
tho escape was made, and in anothor, in the
stato to w hich he had escaped.
Wc cannot follow the author through his In
quiry Into tho nature of tho action; w bother
it bo preliminary ot final. His conclusion of
course, is that it is a linul action, lint ho af
firm thut the wickedness of the law is manifest,
a well as it unconstitutionality, in that it
commits the llnal decision in regard to the lib
erties of tho individual, not to the ordinary
forms and process of law, but to the caprice of
a mere ministerial oIKcer ; thus removing all
legal Imrrior between actuul liberty and actual
sluvcry. There havo been, ho truly lays, lost
in this act, ' tho trial by jury tho aacrcdiicss
of the judicial ollice, and tho greater part of
tho law ol evidence.
Wo givo the closing paragraph of tho book
Though tho author has proved that the fugitivo
act is unconstitutional in form, he hus equally
proved that it u tonatitutiouul iu intuit. How
then ho (an otlinn, with hi own demonstrations
before him, that " tho constitution is no accom
plice, that the Union has no part in the guilt,'
is mum inaii wo cun imagine. It is a patriotic
flourish not nt all iu keeping with ths logio ol

Fruits of Slavery.
Tho Cincinnati paper lay that on tho 10th
pist a colored man was found dead in a corn
field near Hamilton. Hi person was unrecog
nized by any of tho citizens. It is supposed he
wo a fugitive, and perished while In pursuit of
his freedom, from cold, exposure nnd hunger.
Tho suspicion is confirmed by the fttct, that a
party of slavo hunters had passed through that
place a few day previous.
Thus has probably perished another victim of
our slaveholding government and religion.
Poor wretch ! famished in the midst of plenty
dying with terror, cold and exposure, in the
sight nf the habitation of men possessed of tho

dared not whilo he was able, make an appeal to
save himself from starvation. And yet miser

whom this nation cut olf from all possibility of

this ? Let him find it in the following incident.

I am writing, a you prcccive from tho very
grave of tho lamented idol. Here ho lived,
died, and wa buried. With somo friends, I
went yesterday afternoon to his late icsidcnce,
and also to hi present resting place. Hi
farm had many acre not fur from seventeen
or eighteen hundred. Much of it, however,
was salt marsh, over which tho highest tides
ebbed and flowed. The town is well named,
Mnrshfield. Eastward ho wns bounded on the
sea, and to enjoyed fine opportuuitie for fowl

Hi farm wa better stocked than most others.
But I saw no cattle that would compare with

material for that order of architecture. And
the aecond is, that to marry such sn elaborate
structure, to the original, an old fushioncd,

incestuous, or adulterous a Union, to bo allow

A quarter of a mile north of the mansion, is
the family tomb, remotely situated enough,
away from any road, or any opprnacb, except
across tho fields and pastures. It is in an an

long sinco deserted, except by the Webster
family. But you will find there, draped in tho
most of two centuries, the tomb stone of many
of the first settlers of Plymouth Colony. There
