THE LEGAL TENURE OF SLAVERY.
i illinm Goodnll has commenced a .eric, of
lotter. iu tho National Era, under thi. cuption, in
w hich he .ay. " My first affirmation is that American
slavery is not legal ; that it i. destitute of the sane,
tion. of valid law."
We are glad to see thi. question discussed in the
Era. We hopo that ere lone tho American neonle
will give it a careful consideration, and that the
investigation will rosult in tho conclusion, with
a , ,
Whigs and Democrats, that thero is a law higher
than the slavo-catchi.ig law of Congress ; and with
all Free Soilers, that thero is a Constitution superior
in authority to that of the American nution : one
that i. to hold it. authority iu all case, by virtue of

that the previous decision was nut law. The sumo
court, and sometimes the sumo judge, givos a decis

affirming the illegality of the former decision.
huh was done by Lord t'liier Justice Mansfield, in
the Somerset case, affirming the illegality of Slavery
in England. It would )o absurd to maintain that
all Judicial decisions are truthful exponent. nf LAW.
for this would be to maintain that law umitradtot.

"And, in making thi. affirmation, I mean some
thing in addition to the sentiment that Slavery is in
violation of moral law, tho law of nature, the law
of Uod. This idea is included, and it furnishes nn
important link in the chain of the argument I shall
employ. Hut thousands will admit that Slavery
violate tho dirine law, who yet concede that it is in
accordance with the civil law, and a sonstitucnt
element of it. In opposition to this, I affirm that
shtvchohliiig is iii opposition to the tiril law that
it is as truly so as nny eriminnl practice that can he
named. 1 sny this, not for tho purpose of enunci
ating anything hvperholical or startling; still less
for tho object of opprobrium or abuse. I sny it
merely as expressive of my firm nnd settled convic
tion of the ease. I mean to say, that it is the legal
dutv of every court, judge, and juror, a duty to
which tho solemn oaths of their official stations
bind them, to affirm tho illegality of Slavery and
the criminality of slnvehohling, whenever a case
involving the personal liberty of an enslaved person
comes before them. I hold that every slave in
America is entitled to a rcrdiet and judgment af
firming his or her freedom, in any of the court,
