MR. GILDERSLEVE'S LETTER.
Judge Grier [...] to hang Mr. Gildersleve!!—
Letter Mr Gildersleve showing sundry Reasons
against the Execution.
To the Hon.. I .id' drier, of the Su
of tlio l.'nitml States.
Sim In your remarks from the Hen

" ."'. i-- y
euit I olirt over w nu n von u esni'-, n .joon "o
kins nml others, nnd also in your printed opinion,
Vou have taken liberties' with my name, no less
ineonsistcnt with the dignity of your ollieial nta
liun, than with utli and ju.-tii e. The insinua
tion, eijuivalent to n )iositiM' assertion, that I am
in "iinprineipied interloper," d ies not amount to
proof, tiltlioiigh proceeding from the lips of a Judge 1
of the Supreme Court of the l uite I States. j
An affidavit was made by me, upon whii'i a
warrant was i.snel for the arrest of vei l lin si ive
catcher.. Vou were oleased to remark "If tliii i
man fails to make out the a -ts set forth in the w ar
rant of arrest, I will reipiest the prosoeuting attor
ney of Luzerne County to presenile him f. r rerju
Tf." 1'erhapB it would still more nid ami comfort (
felons i" you would rei, nest all proi-oi iiting iitt..r-)
lieys to 'prosecute all tirand Jurors for pi ijuiy,
whenever the facts they had sworn to were di -pro-,
veil on trhvl; in other words, w henever a eis. n in
dieted is acquitted on trial, .eiul the Jurors who!
indicted him to the State 1'i :mi:i lor evjiiry:

.ur iiiteer.tv vou keot it to y.uirsell. rcrliaiis von
in iy know sninelhing of me. You may know that
I hale oppression. That I believe in the doctrine
of tlio leul-iration of Independence. That I do nut
believe in t'..e power of tbo l uite I Slateu (lovern

to our country, and that 1 loathe it from my very

thought to intimid lte me by .ending me a threat

beiv'h. Vou are mdii'miut at the int erfei eiice i fn
(imw.'iwy state magistrate with I'nilel States nffi
ters. It may bo humiriting to you, but s.i' li is
system of our li ivernment, that a tmipenny renn
vylviinin magistralo has a perfect right to order the
arrest not only of a deputy Marshal, but ft Judge
of the Supreme Court of 'tho l uite 1 States, on a
criminal charge. Ileum it is no mailer of aurpri-e
ttiat n justice of the pc.icc should order tin arrest
of official hiv o catchers, when they assume the
mirt nf brutal and murderous assailants. A Jus-
t'ur. of the neaco may iitaiear in the view of a Judge
o'ftlie Supreino Court of the l'nite-1 States, a "tu-
jieny magistrate," but in the estimation of honor-'
ii'lile, virtuous men, the olhVe of a Justice is inlin-'
My mnre run-,. -able than that of a slave catching
nt any bribe of five dollars a head:
the .pawn of ,t L'nited States Judge, not tho choice;
of free people. ,
We nro left to Infer from your w ritten opinion
that no degree of violenceand brut ility in catching
negroes is culpable nr illegal. Von seem to have
foreotten that tlio warant forthe nrrost of an nlleged
fugitivo is a ciViV not n eriininnl process. 1 ho lu-
gitive i. not charged with crime, lie is merely
charged with "owing rervico." He is an iinfertu
unto debtor. Can it be that vu snnnose a rherilf,
In executinir nroees. in nn nc'tion nf debt, liuiv take
nn armed po.so nnd deliberate -rt ith bis associates
on tho j.ropriety of shooting the delenilant, it tney
cannot otherwise take him, nnd that they may vio-t
lontly nanlt liim, and beat hitn. nnd tire pistol, nt
ondnngering his lif'o, and all this without
.showing his warrant?
