Governor of Kansas.
Gov. Geary's re.Mgmtion has been ac
cepted, and Kobt. J. Walker, of Miss.,
former Secretary of the Treasury, is to
be his successor. It is reported from
Washington that Kansas u flairs chiefly
occupied the attention of the Cabinet
last week, and that the new Governor
trill go out clothed with full powers to
preserve order in the Territory, and pre
vent eny attempts at illegal interference
with the elections. We hope these state
ments may prove well founded, but we
shall be agreeably disappointed if they
are verified by the admiuistratiou of Gov.

II. THE llF.t.ATln OF Till" FFPKRAI.
flilVKR.NMKNT TO t-I.AVFKV IN TIIF,
()n thepecond poi nt, ' the'relation of
tho Federal Government to Slavery in
the States,'' Judge McLean quotes from
the Constitution, and tho proceedings of
the Convention which framed that in
strument, to show that (slavery was con
sidered a Sfatf in.itrtution, subject only
ti the sovereignty of the States in which
it existed. Tho Supreme Court, in the
cue of Groves vs. Slaughter, ''held that
Cingrcss had no power to interfere with
slavery as it existed in tho Slates, or to
regulate the slave trade among them."
Tho onlv connection (says Judge
McLean) which the Federal Government
holds wilh slaves in a State, arises from
that provision of the Constitution which
declares that, ' No person held to ser
vice or hbor in one State under the laws
thereof, escaping into another, shall in
consequence r.f any law or regulation
therein, be discharged from such pervice
or labor, but shall be delivered up, on
claim of the party to whom such service
or labor may be due.
This bcinir a fundamental law of the
Federal Gc vcrnment it rests mainly for
its execution, as has been held, on the
Judicial power of the Union; and so far
as t Tic rendition of fugitives from labor
has become a subject of Judicial action
the Federal obligation has been faith
In the formation of the Federal Con
E'it'.ilion care was taken to eonfer no
power on the Federal Government to
interfere with the institution in the
States. Tn tho provision respecting the
lave trade, in fixing the ratio of repre
sentation, and providing for the reclama
tion of slaves from labor, slaves were
referred to as persons, and in no other
respect are they considered in the Con
stitution. We know as a his
torical fact that James Madison, that
gr.-at and good man, a leading member
in the Federal Convention, was solici
tous to guard the language of thai, in
strument so as not to convey the idea
that there could be property in man.
Many of the States, on
the adoption of tho Constitution, or
shortly afterward, took measures to
abolish Slavery within their respective
jurisdictions; and in it is a well-known
fact that a belief was cherished by the
leading men South as well as North,
that, tho institution of Slavery would
gradually decline, until it would become
extinct. The increased value of slave
labor, in the culture of cotton and ru
gar, prevented the realization of this ex
pectation. Like all other communities
and States, the South were influenced by
what they considered to be their own in
III. TIIE POWER OF CONGRESS TO ESTAII-
lAV.l TERRITORIAL GOV EUN MINTS, AND
TO PROHIBIT TIIE INTRODUCTION OF
The third point, "the power of Cong
ress to establish Territorial Govern
ments, and to prohibit the introduction
of Slavery therein," is next considered,
and the existence of such power is most
ably and conclusively established
Judge McLean refers to the debates
tho Federal Convention to show that
other government fo the territories
than that of Congress was contemplated,
and argues that the 3d section of the
4th article of the Constitution clearly
c infers upon Congress the necessary
power. The language is: "The Conjr
ress shall have power to dispose of, and
make all needful rules and regulations
respecting tho Territory and other
property cf the U. States."
The power to "make all needful rules
and regulations" (remarks the Judge)
is a power to legislate. This no one
controvert, as Congress cannot make
'rules and regulations," except by leg
islation. Rut it is argued that tho word
territory is used as synonymous with
word land; and that the rules and regu
lations of Congress are limited to
disposition of ' lands and other proper
ty belonging to tho United States."
That this is not the true construction
the section appears from the fact that
the first line of the section, "the power
to di-posc of the public hinds" is given
expressly, and in addition, "to make
needful rules and regulations."
povn-r to dispose cf is complete in itself,
and requires nothing more. It author
izes Congress to use the proper means
within its discretion, and any further
provision for this purpose would be
useless verbiage. As a composition
Constitution is remarkably frco
such a charge.
In the discussion of the powerof Con
gress to govern a Territory, in the
of the Atlantic Insurance Company
Canter, (1 Peters, 511, 7 Curtis,
Chief Justice Marshall, speaking for
Court, ?aid. 'in regard to the people
Florida. "They do not, however,
in political pow.-r; they do
share in the Government till Florida
shall become a Slate; in the meantime
Florida continues to bo a Territory
the I'nited States, governed by virtue
of that clause in the Constitution which
empowers Congress 'to make all needful
rules and regulations respecting
territory or other property belonging
the United States.' "
The judicial mind of this country,
State and Federal, has agreed on no
within its legitimate action,
equal unanimity as on the power
Congress to establish Territorial

Ohio to the G nlf of Mexico, extending
to the lakes on the north and the Pacific

Great interests have grown up
the Territorial laws over a country
more than five times greater in
than the original Thirteen States,
these interests, corporate or other
wise, have l-eeii clieri-la tl ana coiihoIi
d itcd by a benign policy, without
one supposing the law-making
had united with the Judiciary under
universal sanction of the whole country
to usurp a jurisdiction which did notbe
bmr to them. Such a dibcoverv nt
lalo date, is more extraordinary than
nnvthing which lias occurred in the ju
dicial history of this or any other coun
try. Tcxas'undcr a previous organiza
tion was admitted as a State, but no
State can be admitted into the I" n ion
which has not been organized under some
f irm of Government. Without tempo
rary Governments our public lands
could not have been sold, nor our wil
derness reduced to cultivation and the
population protected; nor could our
flourishing States W est ana foutli been
What do the lessons of wisdom and
experience teach, under such circum
stances; it the new light wmcn nas so
suddenly and unexpectedly burst upon
us be true? Acquiescence, acquiescence,
under a settled construction of the Con
stitution for sixty years, though it may
be erroneous, which has secured to the
country an advancement and prosperity
beyond the power of computation.
As to tho power of Congress to pro
hibit slavery in the Territories, the fol
lowing lucid and convincing argument
of Judge McLean, may be pronounced
If Coiigress should deem slaves or
free colored persons injurious to the pop
illation of a Free Territory, as condiic
ing to lessen tho value of the public
lands, or on any other ground connect
cd with the public interest, they have
tho power to, prohibit the m from becom
ing settlers in it. Thiscan be sustained
on tho ground of a sound national pol-
icy, which is si clearly shown in our
historv, by practical results, that it would
seem no considerate individual can ques
tion it And, as regards any unfairness
of such a pohev to our Southern brcth
ren, as urged in the argument, it is only
necessary to sav, that with one-fourth
of the Federal population of the Union
they have in the Slave States a larger
extent of lertne Jcrntory than is inclu
ded in the Free States; and it is submit
ted, if masters of slaves be restricted
from brinjriiij; them into free territory
that the restriction on the free citizens
of non-shiveholding States, by bringing
slaves intofrec Territory, is four times
greater than that complained of by the
South. Rut not only so, some three or
four hundred thousand holders of slaves,
by bringing them into Free Territory,
impose a restriction on twenty millions
of the Free States. The repugnancy to
Slavery would probably prevent fifty or
a hundred freemen from settling in
Slave Territory, where ono slaveholder
would he prevented lrom settling in
I ree lcrritory.
ibis remark is made in answer to the
argument urged, that a prohibition of
lavcry in the I reo territories, is in
consistent with the continuance of the
In regj. d to the constitutionality of
the Ordinance of 17S7 and the Mis
souri Compromise, Judge McLean says:
The prohibition cf Slavery north of
3G 30', and of the State of Missouri,
contained in the act admi'.ting that
State into the Union, was passed by
vote of 131, in the House of Reprcsen-
tatives, to 42. Before Mr. Monroe
signed the act, it was submitted by him
to his Cabinet and they held the restric
tion of Slavery in a Territory, to
within the Constitutional powers
Congress. It would be singular, if
1804, Congress had power to prohibit
the introduction of slaves in Orleans
Territory from any other part of
Union under the penalty of Frredom
the slave, if the same power, embodied
in the Missouri Compromise, could
be exercised in 1 S20.
Rut this law of Congress, which pro
hibits Slavery north of Missouri and

opinion is founded mainly, as I under
stand, on the distinction drawn between
the ordinance of 17S7 and the Missouri
Compromise line. In what does
distinction consist? The ordinance, it
said, was a compact entered into by
confederated States before the adoption
of the Constitution, and that in the ces
sion of territory authority was given

placed it on a different footing from Ter

to perceive the force of this
tinction. That the ordinance was

The JuJ;'o next proceeds to consid
er the 4th head, which is:
IV. THE EFFECT OF TAKING SLAVES

HOLDING Til EM WI1EUE SLAVERY

laws." If this be so Slavery can

And the Court further say, "It is

Now if a slave absconds he may lie
reclaimed; but if ho soeompany his mas

Slavery is prohibited, such slave cannot
be said to have left tho s irvieo of his
master, where his services were legal
ized. And if Slavery be limited to the
range of the Territorial laws, how can
the slavo be coerced to serve in a State

thority of law, but against its express
provisions? What gives the master the
power to control the will of his slave.' -
1 lie local law, which exists in sonic
form. Rut where there is no such law
can tho master control the will of the
slave by force? Whcro no Slavery ex
ists, the presumption, without regard to
color, is in favor of freedom."
Under this head (proceeds the Judge)
I shall chiefly rely on the decisions of
the .Supremo Courts of the Southern
States, and especially of the State of
In the 1st and 2d Sections of the fith
Article of tho Constitution of Illinois,
it is declared, tLat neither Slavery nor
involuntary servitude shall hercntter be
introduced into this iMate, otherwise
than for the punishment of crimes
whereof the party shall have been Only
convicted; and in the 3d Section it is de
clared that any violation of this Article
shall effect tho emancipation of such per
son from his obligation to service.
Numcrousi'ises aie cited, from decis
ions of the Missouri Coiv. ts, to show that
for 23 years, or from 1821 down to 1S."i2,
(when the case of Died Scott vs. Emer
son was decided against the plaintiff,) it
was uniformly held that tho volun
tary removal of a Slavo to a Free State
by his master, was equivalent to an net
of emancipation. The most remarka
ble of these decisions is that in the
ease of Rachel vs. Walker, in 1S35, the
circumstances of which were precisely
similar to those of tho Drcd Scott case
"Rachel sued for her freedom, and it
appeared that sho had ben bought as
Blave in Missouri by Stockton, an
officer of tho Army, taken to Fort
Celling, waere he was stationed, and
she was retained there as a slave
year, and then Stockton removed to
Prairie du Chien, taking Rachel with
him as a slave, where he continued to
hold her three years, and then took
her to tho State of Missouri and sold
her as a slave.
'Fort Snclling was admitted to be on
the west side of the Mississippi River
and north of the Mate of Missouri in
the territory of the United States.
That 1 rairie du Linen was on the east
side of the Mississippi Bivcr. Walker,
the defendant, held llaehel under Stock
ton." The Court eaid, in this case:
''The officer lived in Missouri Tcr
sitory at the time ho bought the
rlave; . he eent to a slaveholding
country and procured her; this was
his voluntary act, done without any oth
er reason than that of his convenience,
and ho and those claiming under him
must be holdcn to abide the conse
quences of introducing Slavery both in
Missouri Territory and Michigan contra
ry to law, and on that ground Rachel
was declared to bo entitlod to freedom."
The samo principle was uniformly
maintained by the Court3 of Louisiana
for many years, until at length the Leg
islature passed an act, declaring that
a slave should not be made free un
clcr such circumstances. Ho such act.
however, has ever been passed by Mis
tr l i, , i , i .
ine laet mat tnc common law
in 1823 declared by statute a part

by Judge McLean. On this point
"If the common law have the force
of a statutory enactment in Missouri
it is clear, as it seems to me, that
slave who, by a residence in Illinois
in the service of his master, becomes
entitled to his freedom, cannot
be reduced to slavery by returning
his former domicil in a Slave State.1
Tho article in tho Treaty by which
Louisiana was ceded, guaranteeing
the inhabitants, their rights of proper
ty, Ac., has been claimed to amount
to a stipulation that Slavery should
continue to exist in the Territory.
To this argument Judge McLean
"The answer to this is, in the
place, that such a subject does not
long to the treaty-making power;
any such arrangement would
been nugatory. And, in the secon
place, by no admissible construction
can the guaranty Lo carried lurtiicr
than the protection of property
slaves at that time liv tho ceacd
ritory. And this has been complied
with. Tho organization ot the
States of Louisiana, Missouri, and Arkan

removes every pround of objection
under the treaty. There is, there
fore, no pretense growing out of
treaty, that any part of the Territory
of Louisiana, as ceded, beyond the
