FROM HON. SAMUEL E. SEWALL. V?r'ir fiir i I reyrel exceedingly thai I ran liol attend in person tho cclchiatioii to com uieiuorati! the rescue of Jeiry. I am happy, however, to express in wrilinj.' my thluiira tion of that ftlorious act. It is baldly neces sary lor me to add that 1 concur emiiely in tho views expressed hy the committee in ibeir circular. J wish every ncm in the na tion could be brought to sen their liireo.

It cannot he disputed thai the law of timl is as hiiniini; on overnmenti! as on individuals, elunler, piracy, robbery, and kidnapping, are crimes by the ctenutl and immutable decree of the Omnipotent. No legislation can make them otherw ise. Any statute which enacts that such crimes shall be lawful, lining n violation nf the higher law, is null ami void. It is n manifest duty to I'efusu lo aid in euliirciug it. And forcible resistance to it, being always justifiable, be comes sometimes mi insert duty. Judges on the bench, being, equally with private persons, subject lotlic moral law, are hound even mole imperatively, if it ho poss ible, than tlioso not in ol'.ice. to tiroiiouiicn ntntmcs wbicb require tho commission of crimes null anil void. Imleetl, it seems strung" to me, that Judges who do not hesi tate lo declare ads ol Congress void because they . violate the Constitution, should yet shrink from declaring thu nullity uf uslalule, which tramples on Iho eternal principles of justice. nBCRATlu tlUA,.IFJCATInNS.

To limber illustrate my views on this pnint, allow me to quote n low lines from an article by me for another jouriiiil,.iid which w ill be published 011 WcdiiesU.y of this week.

This admission,-from one Mho denounces s'oino ol the peculiar outrages ol Ihe Sttom, is fiital. Hut the claim, from those who de lend ibes-o incidental oiitrcgee:, carries its own antidote with it.
