We a Tee with tho Caledonian in commend
ing the tone and fpirit of the article alluded to
in the Pha'tiix, though it contains some errors
in statement. 1'or im-tHnce, in apologising for
the singular courso Mri Wkbstf.ii has thought
proper to pursue towards those Whigs who dc
sirej and intent, lhat llio Fugitive Slave Law
chall ba cscnlially modilied, or repealed,, the
(:,muix says Mr. Wkbstgr "offered, and en
daunted In procure the passage of a bill giving
the rrceioft a trinl 6y jury.'' Mr. Webster in
formed the Senate that ho had such a hill '-in
lis tcs'.',"'' which ho designed to otTer as an
r.memlmcnt ; but lie ncier did it.. And our
oomplaint against that distinguished and pon
derous State.-maii if, that ho is now wholly in
tolerant of' those Whigs who seek to have the
Hugitivo Slave Law so amended as to embrace
tho very provision of Trial by Jury which he
hini'elf thinks it ought to embrace.. The Free
Press plants ilt-elf upon Mr. WlVstek's ex
pressed ort.MONs, (in 1813 and 1850) and en
counters the misfortune, thereby, ol being de
nounced by Mr. Webi-teh's frkndt! Mr.
Wnr.sTCi: thinks the General (j'oieruinent has
notion" to do wilh the restoration cf ' persons
escapin" from service ;'" that it is a duty dt-
volving en ths Slates which they raust perform,
tlirough their own legislation, and in tki man
ner that their Legislatures shall dci-ignate.
Vermont, through her Legislature, agreeing
with Mr. Webstek, has pointed out tho step
to bj taken, in her Courts, preliminary to tho
restoration of one of her "inhabitants," claimed
as a fugitive from " service.' She has enacted,
(ljain agreeing wilh Mr. Vi:nTciv both as
rupee's jurisdiction and process,) that such in
habitant," so c'aimrd, shall be entitled to Trial
by Jury. We say nothing about the Habeas
Corpus, because wo hold that to be a personal
right, entirely inalienable at all times and under
nil circumstances. Tho murderer has a right
to it ; and it is the sublimation of folly to pre
tend that the man, black or white, innocent of
trinvt, has not. l!ut Congress has stepped in
mid taken exclusive jurisdiction in the pre
mises : what Congress has never done, and
does not claim the right to do, in the case o(
Apprentices, or horses, "escaping from service,"
from one State into unother. Mr. Webster
thinks this act of Congress untnnslilittiumil;
so do we. Hut, says Mr. Weu'ter, the Fugi
tive Slave Law is passed and must be obeyed.
So say we. But, says Mr. Vedter, I hold
no man to be a patriot or a lover c f the Union,
" 1 have so cnsriDE.'veE in any man, who
wishes not who icorls, but who wi-iies, evenl
to have this law modified." Are we to submit
to a dictation that denies not only the freedom
of IIip Press to the Whig Party, hut tho fret d.im
of thought and desire to its members ? Xo "e in.
We very Irccly accede to the f'niou U'ltiglUe
right to contend against the modification or re
peal of the odious and deter-lablc Fugitite Slave
Law. Our friend of the Bellows Falls (tazette

Very, many Lawyers, generally deemed respec

al. As to what you say of Judge Mi.Lm.n, it
may lie true enough, hut it does not touch the
qiiestion. There is no doubt in relation to the
Constitutional provision, for the- delivery of
persons held to : service.!' It is not tho (.'011
stitulion lint tho liuw which is in question.
I have read the Fugitive Law, and I find that
it mav ho Urn oath ol the claimant, provided
it is satisfactory to the "Cotirr of Pa-rord," which
it would1 he very likely to he, without any
hing to.robut it, since it is entirely irpartc.
This expw.ic testimony incitules also a dys-
oription of the person ci-aping, and it (lppenda.
altogether upon Urn discretion of tho Commis
sioner whether ho will admit "other" testimo
ny, and no provision is made for the-hearing of
rebutting evidence. Tim said record, made
perhaps 500 miles off", with its descriptioaof tho
parson of the Slave csenped, m 7 bo deemed.
"satisfactory proof' by tho Commissioner, and,
I repeat, the law makes no provision, at all, for
the hearing of testimony in behalf of the alleged
Fugitive. It gives neither him nor his. friends
any notice, allows no opportunity fcr defence.
If his friend's happen to he apprised' of what is
going on, they interfere, aail if the Commis
sioner condescends to defer the trial long enough,
to allow the introduction of testimony in his be
half, he innv hear it ; hut the law makes pro-
set forth more clearly lr.y views upon tho very
important subject which deservedly receives
so much discussion at tho present time. If tho Jp''' tr'''
sclrpays for none, and so far as it i.eonocrned,
makes no provision, for any thiag but a summary
views which I entertain were those of ono indi
vidual, it would boa matter of small impor
tincc; hut I am persuaded tlmt I am very far
run hein-g alone in my opinions ; tliat iu fjet a
rc.it portion of tho people of the Nortb hdd
uh.-tantially the same.
You tindert-ind mo- correctly, if rou tnrnn
hy "nullify" disobey. I do hold that wlvm
ongress passes a law which, in my judg
ment is unconstitutional, 1 have a perlcct
lit to disobey it. If I have taken an
ith to support the Constitution, and '-laws
made in isirsttanw thereof," they bo "in
pursnunre thereof," or they are not binding.
l'his is not to profess "infallibility." I do not,
iny mean, profess to ho infallible. I may
err, but I am bound to follow my lioncst con
victions. You say: '.Suiinom that the llurirlar
Robber si u mbl choose to hold ti laws of
nporty tinenTtitutinn-il, would his opinion be
any defence for him, tforn (lo l or num?" '
crtainly not. Xo nm's opinions avail liiuif

consequences. According to your "true theo-
there wnnld he no possibility of testing
the CWs-trtutionality of n Law. Y011 say : "The
true theory is : - if ('ongret-s, should pass, an un
constitutional Law, tlmt it is to bo respected as
aw, aud obeyed as such, until the Judicial
powers si.-ts it aMdo."- Hut if every Ixury res
pects and obeys a law, how is the Judicial pow
er to set it aside? Since von suppose a case.
t me ilo the same ; suppose Congress should

The record is required to bo satisfactory as
to the service due, and exparlc testimony as to
identity, is deemed Millicient ground for a cer
tificate. Any defence on the part of the prison
er mii-t be deemed merely accidental. I erred
iu saying tliat tho oath of the chimant is all
that is uecossniy ; but still I am correct in af
firming that it iMtif be all tliat is required, for
it is so if !l strtixfic IFtf Commissioner. do not
like your frequent allusion to the fugitive from
justice, as if it were a parallel case. It seems
unfeeling and inhuman to sprstk, a yisi often
do, of our sympathy for Fugities from Oppres
sion, as equally appropriate fi c Fugitives from
Justice. The States are bound to surrender fu
gitive criminals; but such criminals are twit to
bc-doprivod of life or liberty, without "due pro
cess of law." Suppose the nlfeged criminal to
bo given up, he cautwt he pianished until he
lias kulaf.iir trial. He must be arraigned, and
fairly tried before ho is cither condemned or ac
quitted. One State surreinlnrsto a sister State.
The fugitive is tuit consigned tenth! tender mer
cies of irresponsible iudivnliirtls. It is not i-o
with the Fugitive Slave. T!vp Law takes iimi
and puts him in the Isinds of the claimant, and
that claimant may dispose of liiuias ho chooses.
He is not necessarily tried by a jury unless he
demands it, ami that j may easily bo prevent
ed from doing.
Suppose tho owner of Rims, slmsild take him
to Texas and dispose of him, I would like to
know if Sims Mould not haw an extremely

What vou sav of the Southern Churches bad

very much doubt your competency to. decide

may give that as your opinion, but I doubt your

" he wholilchfs from me my good name

The signs of the times plainly indicate this.
The- "democratic"" members of the "holy alii

their old standard. "Free Democracy" has de

The Xorth Stur nnil tho Spirit of the .'ge, two

only natural, but right.. The, "F'cc Democra

humbug the people of Vermont again. Ver-

been recommended to them by "' ce Demur.

Will you, true-hearted' and honest Whigs of
