, Mr. Torrey's Justification
-Of HIS ATTEMPT TO BREAK JAIL
I have commonly acted on the maxim of the late j
venerable Dr; Emmons, viz: to do what I thought j
rioht. nnd leave to others the business of justify in"
me or not, as they pleased. But in this case, when
I attempted to do w hat, in ordinary cases, is u vio
lation of just law, I feel hound to depart from my
' usual course, and nsk a hearing.
.First, As to the facts. I ohtained from friends
in another city, some saws and chisels with which
to escape from prison. No prisoner but myself
knew where they were to be obtained, when they
came, or who brought "them. The persons who
brought them to me, in the jail, did not know what
they brought. To them I never spoke or wrote on
.the subject. I had most of the tools many weeks,
and all ot them lor a considerable tune nerore any
prisoner knew it. I never asked any

i judge otherwise, give their reasons I will try to
give them due weight. But so long as I see slave

that maintain it, and all persons who enforce them,
to be obnoxious to the divine displeasure, I am

Fourthly. 'But the other prisoners: have you
no scruples as to escape of men, guilty of what
you and all men justly deem crime?' I have. 1.
The case of Dryer, t lie counterfeiter, troubled my
conscience not u little : not the less so, because he
was an old slavetrader, Perhaps that is the rea
son why the press of Baltimore has treated him
with so much tenderness! 2. There was a boy
named Davis, charged with stealing a rein, ..worth
twenty-five or thirty-seven cents, not guilty, as I
believe, though not a good boy, by any means. 8.

Can you justify yourself to Him, as well as to so
ciety?' My answer shall bo frank and simple.
One of my motives I cannot wholly approve, on
strict Christian principles. In all other respects, I
think I have a right to the sympathy and counten
ance of all honorable and good men, in this mat
ter. ' ,
1. When I was committed to jail, every single
item of evidence implicating me, in the Heckrotte
case, was false and perjured; yet, so carefully
planned as to make it well nigh impossible in prove
it by second testimony. Each witness was very
careful to have met me alone! One man, however,
swore to having seen me 'at my milker's house, in
Harford county, Md., in 1831 or '33.' My Mass.
friends will laugh at so gross a perjury. But
the knavo was very anxious to identify nie? In
the Winchester (Va.) case, where there is not a
particle of true evidence against me, a false wit
ness had been prepared to give direct testimony
against me, there. Not doubting.-fi om the known
character, threats and pay of my prosecutors, that
such evidence to any needed extent, would be
brought forward, I regarded the hope of escaping
it as vain; at least, whiie I remained shut up in
2. From the time of my arrest, the w hole clique
of slave-traders, slave-catching police men, low
slaveholders, and their abettors, including one or
two of the prison officers, have made it their busi
ness to ubuse and slander me and my friends, with
the general object of preventing the existence, or
at least, the expression of any personal or Christ
ian, sympathy for me. I have had 'too many friends'
for their purposes, as they often complained. 1
found threats, persuasons and falsehoods freely re
sorted to, to hinder respectable citizens of Balti
more from visiting me; and with success. My
kind landlady and the young ladies of her family,!
almost daily called on me, to give men chance to
breathe the fresh air, by walking a few moments in
the prison yard. They are poor; jhey are not an
tislavery people; but have human hearts, and are
Virginians. They were very kind to one almost
a stranger. This was enough for malice to work
Suddenly the young" ladies were excluded, with
rude insults, from the jail yard. The reason as
signed was, such gross lewdness in the sight of a
half a score of persons, constantly passing, as
would imply in niennd the lady , a degree of shame
less degradation that hot even rashness and drunk
enness would excuse in common street walkers!
Such a point is not to be argued. Those who
deem rne capable of such vice are welcome to
maintain their opinions till the judgment day!
This shameless tale was trumpeted about the city.
Of course, I was the last person to hear it. It did
me much injury it: many minds. But 0G"no per
son who circulated it seemed to be sufficiently res
pectable to justify a direct contradiction or action
for slander. It was deemed sufficient, therefore,
to connect a general demand for investigation as
to iny character and standing, with some other
matters, in an article in the Baltimore Sun. This
for the time perfectly silenced the band of miscre
ants. ; But they had gone too far to retreat. At
this time, Mr, Dean Walker, formerly a merchant
in this city, but now a respectable citizen of Med-
way, where my family now are, came to Baltimore
on business of his own. Hearing the flying and
lying reports of these persons, without saying a
word to me, he appears to have made some inqui
ries of them, as to what they alleged against me.
CO"Forthvith they spead the story through the
city, as far as they could, that 'Mr. Torrey had
long been separated from his wife; nnd she bad
sent on Mr. D. Walker to obtain evi'lence to get
a divorce from him.' So one of them impudently
told me. Mr. Walker had brought me a kind let
ter from inv wife: and I knew her incapable of hy
pocrisy.' One of them met one of my counsel in the
street, and told his story in triumph. When the
frequency of my correspondence with Mrs. Tor
rey was suggested, as inconsistent with his tale,
the wretch dared assail her good name. 'She
can't be his true wife,' said the creature. How
could i, a prisoner, in the hands of such beings,
tell how far their malice had reached? Might
they not have poisoned the confidence of my wife
ami her friends? The very thought was madden
ing I conies that my feelings in this matter, were
were not very Christian. They were too much
like indignant nature, to be very Christ-like. It
was not till after my attempt to escape, that I re
ceived from Mrs. Torrey a letter contradicting the
whole of their atrocious falsehoods, bo far as they
had connected her and her friends with their tales.
In this connexion it should be said, that these per-
- sons have spared no falsehood to destroy the good
name of the family in which I boarded. The bu
siest of these agents of shame, are a noted slave
trader and two police-men. Persons, like these,
- who hunt and sell the poor colored people, may be
expected'to vilify poor white persons, when they
have an end to secure.
The time is not yet corno for a full exposure of
the motives of these wretches: but it is not far off.
These slanders determined me to escape if I cotiliL.
1 ninny. Surrounded by low detainers, met by
perjury in the lower couits, I deemed it my only
chance of justice to be an appeal to the U. States
courts. 1 his was delayed, first, by the refusal of
the Maryland judgo to take bail, pending the Vir
jrinia requisition; and, secondly, by the refusal of
the U. S. Judges to grant a hearing in the Virgin
ia case, till the former was disposed of, by bail or
otherwise ! 1 enln
" v sivwuiu frit in J.It.lC
too, my vigilant enemies interposed,by persuasions
and threats to prevent my obtaining bail. Several
responsible men agreed to become my security ,and
in succession, were driven from it by the agency
of a certain lawyer, with whom justice has a long
score to settle, yet.
Thus deprived of my only hope of a fair trial,
my health ulready broken down, and mv hi-in f.
yered by protracted and close imprisonment; deem-'
niK mi uio cnarges maue against me, criminal in
those who made them; 1 deemed tin escape from
Baltimore jail justifiable, on the same principles on
sons. So tar as my mysell was concerned, 1 be
lieve it would please God if 1 escaped with no inju
ry to others, just as certainly as I helive his frown
rests on all who keep me in prison, on such pleas
as those ullered airainst me, viz: mercy and com
passion to the poor of the land.
Fifthly. 'But those bullets, that powder, and
that torn letter about 'pistols.' and what not, how
do you account for that." I have to say, I am not
ashamed of the contents of that leller. I have of
fered Mr. Pinkney, the deputy attorney, and also
the board of visitors, exact copies for publication,
(names only, omitted,) or for any other use they
please to make of lliefin. The 'powder and balls'
were sent me by mistake. We had no weapons to
use them; and did not intend to have any in or
near the prison. Some of the company insisted on
Oeing armed after we lei t the prison. 1 commend
them to all wiio believe in the right of self-defence.
I do not.
THE RESULT. Betrayed, all the parties
save Dryer and the whig pole man, were heavily
ironed und placed in damp, low arched cells, nnd
treated worse than tho' we were murderers. Two
or three murderers now in jail have never been
ironed; the third for a few hours only. The first
24 hours I was loaded with irons weighing,! judge,
25 pounds, so twisted that I could neither
stand up, lie down, or sleep. We had the dirty,
damp floor, and one hack-less chair'to sit or sleep
on. Lighter irons were then placed on me, and
kept on twelve iL ys; during all of which, aside
fioin the effects of the irons, I was unable to sit
up, nnd most of the time, to tret un without heln.
It would have touched any heart not wholly dead
to human feeling, to see poor John Ste.vart hold
ing up his irons with one hand, and with the oth
er raising up the chained and emaciated sich man,
and tenderly ministering to his wants and weak
ness. If I live, and have the means. Leslie shall
perpetuate it. Instead tif reproaches, John con
stantly cheered me; but for him, 1 should not have
lived to tell it. May God bless him! During
these twelve days, my bed lay on the hard damp
floor. My been became loathsome from filth.
The air of the cell was con.-inialy like a confined
privy vault. They were cleansing a large vault
that for twelve years had been undisturbed! The
air is less impure now. Seven of these twelve
nights, I slept none, from pain and the utter pros
tration of the nervous system. The remaining
nights, save one, I slept from one to four hours. I
am still nearly deprived of sleet), and am unable
to sit up. With pain I stagger across thd floor of
the cell, when obliged to no, yet I am much bet
ter. On Monday, the eleventh of these days of hor
ror, Mr. Pinckney, the acting district attorney,
leiirnina my situation from mv nhvsician. came to
see me, and ordered the removal of the irons, and
the restoration of the comforts and deciencies of
life, such as my condition required. The humane
warden, Mr. Sieener, ussented; but his subordi
nates refused to obey. However, I got mv bed
stead that day.and the next bo was able to enforce
obedience, and the irons were removed from all.
The circulation gradually returned to my sleepy,
paralyzed limbs; and I am now so much better, as
to indicate that six months' careful nursing might
restore my health as it was last June. 1 am very
weak, much emaciated, and my nervous system in
the same slate in which I was in 1835, when I was
compelled to leave Andovcr seminary, and devote
nearly a year to the sole business of regaining
Do I complain? God forbid. 'Shall I receive
good at tho hand of the Lord, nnd shall I not re
ceive evil?' Whatever I may deserve at the hands
of my fellow men, (nnd I think it is not chains and
prison,) I desire humbly to confess my sins in his
sight. lam in the power of the wicked, but their
triumph is short. My God, even the living God,
is my trust in prison, my hope in sickness, and my
strength in the day of weakness. 1 deemed it due
to him, to my family, to myself, to try to escape
from my foes. Having failed, I shall submit cheer
fully to his will, and strive to overcome evil by
suffering, which is the next duty. Such is my jus
tification, written on my bed, with a feeble hand
and aching brain. I believe it will commend it
self to my friends. If not; to that, also, God will
help me to submit cheerfully. 'He is my strength
and my shield.' Charles T. 1 orre y.
