A Slmre Case A md 8lory
About half-past eight o'clock on the morn-
iog of tho 29th nil., tho Inhabitants of Ninth
Btreet, near X, were made the pained specta
tors of one of those disgusting JeeUi which
no much disfigure and discredit the civilization
of the age, and which at the same time fur
nish material to the thoughtful for new
and bitter denunciation of our barbaric
dure laws. Boast at we mar, while
slave-hounds are let loose in broad daylight. In
the capital of tbe Union, to seize upon timid,
crouching fugitives of both sexes from the
horrors of slavery, tn order to re plunge them
Into servitude under legal sanction, we can
never claim, politically or socially, that our
country is the home of the free, nor can we
enjoy the highest blcxslng of a frea people, a
conscience void oi political and moral ouenee.
Amid the quiet of every day Hie, with Ood's

no disturbance, save to thoeo most interested, a

If spell bound, fascinated. They seemed to
love their work with its varied vicissitudes of
hope, disappointment, and success. Despising
aristocracy as true democrats, yet they lould
not avoid feeling for tho nonce, and conscien
tiously, the veriest knights of the lash and the
gve. Heroic in sentiment and hiding their
knightly trappings, they shone forth ns un
liveried slave sneaks, slave pimps,nnd waiters
upon opportunity to snatch up dark-skinned
victims, not for honor us the knights of old,
but for ienoble lucre, derived in nn iniquitous
and damning service. And finally, as If the

The mother was not caught, and orders
were given to the driver to drive at ence to
the office of Commissioner Phillips, coupled
with a somewhat loud statement that "the
children will not leave the District for twen
ty-four hours. The mother will not certainly
desert nor cnuuren.
The whole proceeding was one calculated
to arouse a resolution, if it were possible, to
assist the unhappy family. The case was
therefore mentioned to Mr. John C. Under
wood, theFifth Auditor of thu Treasury, a gen
tleman well and widely known for his active
benevolence In such matters. lie nt once
sought an Interview with Mr. .lohn A. Wills,
of the legal lirm of Mngrnw A. Wills, Xo.

leave no stone unturned to save the children
from rendition into slavery. Mr. Wills lost
no time in proceeding to the City Hall to see
Commissioner Phillips, who is appointed to
Investigate and decide upon cases of fugitive
slaves, and it is certainly not beyond the scope
of truthful narration, to state that he is known
personally and privately to fat or tbe "pecu
liar institution, and tboso who profess an own

of the colored race, from whom is exacted

Thev uresumed her mother's love would rise
superior to her dreud ol slavery, and Induce
her to run the risk of re-cnlavement through
her aflectlonato anxiety to ascertain their fate.
But they were doomed to disappointment.

ed woman, fearful oi every footlall, and tiem

the artless story of the aullerings of hir slave

At holf past three o'clock In I lie afternoon
of the .10th, Mr. Wills, the lawyer, attended
at tho City Hall to conduct the ctue on be
half of the slave children, who bad been
brought from jail and placed on chairs in the
court. Had they been allowed to stand
neither of the boys would have reached the
height of the table, while the little irirl.sicklv
and diminutive, could not have Ihtii seen at
all. Commissioner Phillips presided. The
firocecdings commenced by a witness testify
rig that he had seen tbe children iu the montli
of September on Hall's premises In Maryland,
ana mat ine next time no saw tin in was in
this city, where they were caught. Their
mother was Hall's slave. Hall was a loyal
man, and had not by word or deed aided or
abetted the rebellion. On e ross examination,
ha said, ho and Hall had tracked them to
Bladcnsburg; Baw their tracks and knew
them; considered tracks of fugitive Blavcs dif
ferent from the tracks of white people. The
road was very sandy even up to Hall's farm.
But could not swear the tracks he saw were
the identical tracks made by these children.
Did not know how they got here.
The case for the claimant haviDg closed, Mr.
Wills rose for tho defence. He denied that the
case as submitted, whatever his Honor's pri
vate opinion upon ine lucts might tie, could
be maintained under the act of Congress. His
Honor was a lawyer, and knew the nature of
evidence. He denied that tho children then
before him had been proved to bo fugitives;
there was notatittle of evidence bearing upon
the fact. As to the assertion that certain
tracks upon the sand were their tracks, amount

But what be most confidently rcueu .,
was that ho denied the children to be fugitives
at all, within the meaning of the Fugitive
Slave Ijiw. They were not fugitive slaves.
To flee, was an net of volition, whether from
service or labor, or anything else. And point
ing to tha children, the learned counsel en
quired if tho court, straining the law to the
utmost, could decide that tbe children bod ex
ercised any net ol the will which could con
stitute them fugitive slaves. He therefore
asked the commissioner at onee to liberate
them from custody, as there was no proof that
they had fled in the first place, and secondly
that the act ot Congress never contemplated
stamping children of such tender yeut 3, as fu
The commissioner would not agree with the
argument of the counsel. His view of the
law led him to consider these children as lu
gitive slat es, and aicordingly handed Ihem
over to the mercies of their owner.
