Can Slavery Exist in the Territories by
Virtue of the Common Law
This has been the subject of a aeries of
articles in the Commercial. The question is
rendered Interestingly absurd by the fact
that there is no agreed definition of what
common law is, aud each interprets to suit
his own case; so that the question really is,
whether a -thing can exist by virtue of a
common law If common law prohibits it
an interesting and eminently suitable ques
tion for newspaper argument, the way the
The first question is, what is common law?
It is common custom, and, so far as it Is writ
ten, is contained in Judicial decisions. To
this extent all will admit. But whose cus
toms, and whose decisions? common law
has usually been the common custom of the
place. According to the foundation of com
mon law, the question would seem to be
this; Can slavery exist in a Territory by
virtue of law founded on the customs of the
people of the Territory? The answer would,
of course, be, it can, if they are accustomed
to slavery. This would make a very circa
lur question; but we suspect thftt this is all
there is of it.
Is our common law to end with English
customs and decisions ? Then the question
would be, can slavery exist in a Territory by
virtue of English custom? That would not
seem a sensible question. American common
law, founded on English customs, would be
queer common law for an independent na
tion. But this would not settle the question
for still the inquiry would remain of what
age in England Bhall the custom be taken as
the common law of aur Territories ? Free
dom is a recent invention in England, and
till modern times the common law sustained
villeinage, which we suppose was the worst
form of slavery. England never had any
common law of freedom in ber Territories.
Is it possible that people can not get so sim
ple and patent a historical fact into their nod
dles, when they talk about the common law
of England forbidding slavery in our Terri
The Commercial adopts the common law
of England, and decides that by it slavery
can not exist in the Territories, because it
finds a decision of Mansfield that slaves can
not breathe the air of England, under the
common law. But slaves did at that very
time breathe the air of England's Colonies
in America, under the same common law,
and the African slave trade was carried on
under the British flag. Is it not one of the
strangest muddles of political logic, that
when slavery was actually established in all
Horth America, from Atlantic to Pacific, un
der English common law, without any posi
tive statute, it should now, when we are an
independent nation, be seriously argued that
under the English common law slavery can
not exist in our Territories without special
But suppose that we take American com
mon law and common sense. Custom has
established the rights of the slave-owner in
the slave States, so that they are recognized
bv the free States aud by the Constitution;
all the statutes regulating slavery were after
provisions. The right of the slaveholder does
not depend ou statutes at all; nor does the
recognition which the free States have given
it depend on the fact whether it is properly
legislated into existence by local law, or not.
Men do not know what they are talking
about when they reiterate that slavery can
exist onlv bv virtue of local law. It never
acquired any existence by local law; and
when men say they are opposed to slavery
but are opposed to interfering with its rights
in the slave States, they never have made
that recognition depend on the fact whether
it was founded and established in legislation,
It would be utterly absurd to do this,
when anti-slavery men admit that the law
can make a slave, they cut the platform from
under their own feet, and leave themselves
suspended by the neck, dancing on nothing.
Does the Commercial or any anti-slavery
paper pretend that if all the statutes in the
South, regulating and protecting slavery,
were repealed, the rights of the slaveholder
would thereby be destroyed? This would
the case if slavery existed by virtue of local
law, but none of the local-law preachers will
pretend any such thing; and this shows
fallacy of their local-law logic.
But to return to our common law demon
stration. Slavery exists in the South
virtue of the common law of the place. The
Constitution and Congressional legislation
recognize this common law by providing
that rights existing nuder it shall not be de
stroyed by the escape of slaves to other States.
The Constitution does not prohibit slavery
where; aud whou it was adopted slavery
isted In all the States, and in nil the terri
tory, except the Nonth-west Territory,
which it had been prohibited by special ordi
uance. Now, in the face of all this, can
one pretend that the common law of
nation is such that it forbids slavery every-
where, except where established by special
enactment? In the face of all this, will
one pretend that the common law of
rnuntrr is one of universal liberty? Could
any thing be more contrary to the facts?
We are talking of common law and com'
man facts, not of faith nor of abstract right,
When it comes to faith, why, in politics
believa what the party resolves, and in
ligion what the Church lavs down. But
is a matter of fact. We want none of
"institutions" about us, "to fan us while
sleep and tremble when we wake."
tender Poet, Walt Whitman, expresses
democracy exactly :
"I sneak the word nriioval-I give the sign of
Br Ood.ri will acc.pt nothing which all can not
their counterpart af ou the same tonua.
That is our idea of abstract right j but
confound common law with abstract
right and talk Jargon. . In the abstract
men may be free and equal. We can
ay, for we were never there ; but this is
a natural right, for how can that be natural
right whichnevr existed in a state of
? The natural right of all men to
free It a thing' entirely of artificial growth,
tor the greater part of mankind were always
in a state of bondage. The child is not

several thousand servants ; Lot had
t man, and although we do not bold
bmo up as xamplM for imitation la
domestic relations, yet they show what a
natural government was.
Women are not free. Artificial emulation
hat provided a partial freedom for them, but
among people who were nearest a ttate of
nature, and we might say, 01 rroviaence,
they were slaves. Freedom is a thing of
civilisation, and of artificial growth, not or
nature. The Scripture ought to be pretty
good authority on natural rights, and It cer
tainly does not show that freedom was one or
them. The Commercial states a definition of
common law, as the perfection of right rea
son; yet it holds that It is contrary to tne
scriptural Institution of slavery making
human reason superior to the word of God
This would be a "presumptuous fault in that
paper, if it were not that its Ideas of Script
ure are probably as vngue as of common
law. They who deny the universal right of
slavery, must cut loose both from Scripture
and from common law, which one would natu
rally think ought to be founded in Scripture.
Virtue of the Common Law The Druses Acting up to the Old Precedents.
The difference between the two parties In
Syria, which it the occasion of the rapine
and massacre, at the latest advices going on
in that country, Is the consequence of a di
pnte npon a point of religious doctrine. The
Druses are Unitarians; the Christians, as they
are called, Trinitarians. The former, being
the most active, are simply following pretty
well established precedents In the propaga
tion of their faith being a little more radi
cnl, perhaps, in their practices than Is com'
mon in the Christian countries of Europe and
America, but varying only in degree from the
means employed for similar purposes all
around us. We do not burn and murder, but
we do vilify and defame, with a vigor which
indicates that it it law, rather than religion,
which saves us from embarking in the more
radical processes for the conversion of obsti
nate unbelievers that, in fact, the restraints
of law are necessary to save us from mutual
extermination, In the name of religion.
Nor is it easy to see bow it can be other
wise, as we will attempt to illustrate: There
ure, for example, in the United States to
say nothing of minor divisions two great
bodies into which the religious are dis
tributed. Each of these accuses the other
of deceiving mankind in respect to the great
est and most precious irterest which it is
possible to conceive, to-wit : The salvation
of their immortal souls. The Protestant
Church charges the Catholic of misleading
men to their destruction; the Catholic returns
the charge on the bead of the Protestant.
Both, doubtless, believe with unwavering
confidence what they so positively affirm.
Now, to mislead souls to their destruction,
no one wilPdeDy, is an enormous offense a
crime, in comparison with wmcn all otners
sink into insignificance. What are murder,
rape, robbery, theft, as compared with that
most awful of all felonies, the delivering over
of immortal souls to the torments of hell, for
ever and ever? What punishment is too great
or too summary for those who are guilty?
Ought human laws to be permitted to inter
pose to save the offenders from sudden de
struction, such as was meted out in a similar
case by Joshua to the people of Palestine
when, as we have every reason to believe,
the Almighty himself consented to hold a
candle to the proceeding? Are not the inter
ests of souls infinitely more important, by
every standard of measurement, than those of
bodies and things ; and ought the latter be
permitted to restrain us from action when
the former are at stake? If Catholicism is
the scarlet woman, or protestautism a damn
ing apostacy, what is there logically to excuse
the true church from doing to the false one,
whichever it may be, precisely what the
Druses are doing to the Christians in Syria
Parades and the Mayor's Police.
The Mayor and a sufficient police force
were preseut yesterday to protect the parade
of the Chicago Zouaves. This was proper
and handsome in the Mayor. But, just for
curiosity, we would like to know why the
people were excluded from the ground until
some time after all the militia had entered,
and the Zouaves hod commenced their drill.
There was abundance of room Inside the
lot for all the spectators, and a police force
large enough to keep the required space clear
for the miltary; yet the gate was kept shut
on the crowd, in the hot and dusty street, all
the morning, until after the Zouaves hod
commenced their exercises; and many citi
zens must hare been driven away in disgust.
In the meantime a Urge number had got in
surreptitiously, over the rence; ana
number more of the favored ones had
been admitted through the gate, which
was kept fast closed against the crowd,
at if there was a rabble there that
the Mayor feared contamination from. Fi
nally the gate wot opened and the tired and
impatient people rushed In and .took places,
which they might just as well have had from
the first, not a quarter filling the space al
lotted to them. This splendid result
achieved by the Mayor in person and a large
detachmemt of police. If this is the best
they can do, would it not be at well to leave
it to the citizens and the military next time?
We fear that our worthy Mayor conceived
that his duty was to protect the select few
from the rabble, and that be it unconcious
the fact that In America there it no rabble,
and that in public placet all must trust
precious persons to the average courtesy
the crowd, which is a pretty safe reliance
this country, unless the crowd is aggravated
by such law and order at that of the Mayor
ana nil police yesteraay.
