THE VOICE OF FREEDOM.
of Rome may remonstrate with them lor interfer ing with her institutions ; and Rum-sellers may remonstrate against any interference with their rum-institutions. But what then? They must obey God, rather than man ; must warn the wick' ed; Inust sound the alarm ; must preach, and act not as pleasinsr men, but God, who trieth their hearts, and who will require the blood of souls at the hands of the unfaithful watchman. Another gentleman sees a fearful ghost ahead and cries out. Slavery is a volitical matter. This is granted. , Political action has made slavery, and by this action slavery .is perpetuated. And this is not the only instance, in which iniquity has been established by law. By political action rum selling has long been sanctioned, and lotteries, and theatres, and idolatry, and wars, and bloody per secutions, and almost every species of oppression By political action one religion has been proscribed and another established : one denomination ban ished, or burnt, and another placed under the fos tering care of the state. And what has been done may be done again. Is the cry of political matter in all these cases to stop our mouths, and palsy all exertions ? I trow not. Slavery is made by polit ical action, and every friend of humanity is bound, by political action, to destroy it; to undo every yoke and let the oppressed go free. And it is somewhat curious, that men, who can see two ob jects at once, should call for political action in the temperance cause, and then turn right about, and denounce all such action in the anti-slavery cause ! Surely, consistency is not a prominent trait in the conduct of such men. . But we hope they will grow wiser, and in time learn to occupy with eve ry talent, even their political talent, and not bury this in a napkin. KIAH BAYLEY. From the Boston Atlas. The African Captives. It appears from the Hartford Courant, that on Friday, the grand jury for the district of Connect icut came into the United Slates Circuit Court, and requested instructions and a charge from the Court as to the African prisoners accused of mur der and piracy, which case was before them for consideration. Judge Thompson informed the jury, that the U. S. Circuit Court had jurisdiction of the crimes of murder and piracy, under certain circumstan ces ; but whether or not the case of the prisoners referred to, was one ot which that Court had ju risdiction, he could only tell when the particular facts of that case were laid before him. He could give no opinion unless they would furnish him with a statement of facts. It would be useless for him to address them generally upon the crimes of murder and piracy. If a statement of facts were submitted, it would be the duty of the Court to give .an opinion upon that statement as to the jurisdiction of the Court. The grand jury then retired, and afterwards re turned into court, and presented to the court the following statement of facts by them found, viz: 1 That a Spanish vessel, built in Cuba, called the Amistad, duly and legally licensed to carry on the coasting trade, sailed from Havana on the 28th June, 1839, commanded by Riymond Fener, for the Port of Guanaja. in the island of Cuba, having on board a cargo of sundry articles oi merchandize, two Spanish citizens as passen gers, with 53 negroes purchased by them as Sa- dinoes, (that is, not natives oi Cuba) in the city ot Havana, with regular permits lor the span iards, negroes and merchandize. That about four days after sailing, when three or four league; lrom LUba, and forty irorn Havana, the negroes rose upon and killed the master and one of the crew of the vessel, and took the command and charge of the same, and wounded and injured the two Spanish passengers. That on the 26th of Aug. last, the said schr. Amistad was found in the waters near the east end of Long Island, with in one mile of the shore, in possession of the ne groes aforesaid, from whom she was captured by the U. S. brig Washington and brought into the port of New London, in the district of Connecti cut, where the said negroes were apprehended by the Marshal ot this district, m whose custody mey now are. inai wnne saia vessel was so in possession of said negroes, the boxes and trunks of goods were broken open by tKem, and some of the goods they appropriated to their own use." Upon this statement the grand jury prayed the judgment and instruction of the court, whether any offence had been committed whereof this court had jurisdiction. Judge Thompson said he would take till the afternoon to consider the question. At the open ing of the court in the afternoon, he accordingly delivered his opinion, which is reported in the Hartford Courant as follows : Judge Thompson said "The Laws of the Uni ted States grew out of the Laws of Nations. The offence charged in this case arose out of two statutes, and would be tried in this district, if tria ble at all in the United States but the Courts of the United States have no jurisdiction over offen ces committed in another country, and tf tnis be an offence, and on that subject I give no opinion whether it be an offence at ' all, it cannot be tried here. The courts of one country have nothing to do with those of another; and an offence com mitted in a foreign country cannot be tried in an other jurisdiction. A vessel sailing under the pa pers of another country is Jo be treated as part of uie territorial property ot the country to which she belongs, and as this court could not try the al leged offence if it had been perpetrated in Spain or Cuba, or any other Spanish settlement, so neither, for the reason given, could this court try it as having beeti committed on board a Span ish vessel, which is identical with the soil of the country to which she belongs. Under the state of the facts, therefore, said his honor, I have no hesitation in telling you that this court has no ju risdiction, nor are there sufficient facts before you to warrant you in finding o bill.". . As there was no other business before the court which would require the intervention of either the grand or petit jury, both juries were discharged. Thus has been settled, and exactly in the way in which we expected, for in the beginning of the affair we expressed the opinion that the grand ju ry would never find a bill, the first great ques tion raised in relation to this matter, the question namely, whether the courts of the United States have any jurisdiction to try these Africans for the alleged crimes of piracy and muraer. The second great question in the case, the question, namely, whether the President of the United States has any power to deliver up these persons to the Spanish government, as fugitive criminals ; we consider that question to be con clusively settled in the negative, by the recent case of Dr. Holmes. Any such power claimed and attempted to be exercised by the President of I TT :. ...I C- 1 1 . r . me uiuieu oiuiL-s, couia not iaii, sooner or later to bring the Jbederal Executive into dangerou collision with the State authorities. The fhird great question, that, namely, wheth er these captives cat) be regarded and treated as property, and as such are liable to be delivered up to the persons claiming to own them. This question is raised, though possibly it may. not be settled, by the Habeas Corpus case in regard to the three cdildren, as to the progress of which case we proceed to give some account. This case came on for argument on Friday morning, it appeared by the return ot the Mar shal to the writ, that there had been filed in the District Court, first a libel by Captain Gedney and his crew, claiming salvage upon the Amistad and the property on board, o! which property it was set up that these girls were a part, inasmuch as they were slaves ; second, a libel on the part of Pedro Montez, claiming these girls as his prop erty, and praying that they might be delivered up to him; and third, a libel by the U. a. Attorney for the District of Connecticut, setting out that these girls were claimed by the Spanish Ambass ador, under the treaty with Spain, as Spanish property, and praying that the Court order them ill l i.i.i . to oe aeuvereu up unaer mat claim ; or, in case the Court should judge the case unfounded, that it order the children to be delivered up to the President of the United States, for the purpose of oeing sent oacif. to tneir own country. Messrs. Staples and Baldwin argued for the children, and Messrs. Ingersoll and the District Attorney, against them The argument consum ed the whole of Friday, till 7 o'clock, P. M. when it was concluded, and the Court adtonrned. The argument against discharging the children under the writ, seemed to be principally ground so far as we are informed, upon the point, that the question whether the children are slaves or not was the very matter which must come up before the District Uourt, upon the Jibels hied therein, and that the Circuit Court ought not to anticipate the judgment of the District Court, by deciding that point upon this Habeas Corpus. If the de cision of that Court sbou'd be wrong, the Circuit Court would correct it on appeal. The claimant, Montez, might be able to prove that these girls were his lawful property, if he were allowed time to send to Cuba for the evidence. On the other hand, the counsel for the children contended, that these children were not, and could not be, under any state of facts, the property of Montez, or any body else ; and by way ot show ing that even under the Spanish law they were not property, they put in evidence certain Spanish decrees, totally abolishing the African Slave trade, and pronounced it to be a criminal offence; also the depositions of two native African interpreters, to tne lactthat these children could neither speak English norSpanish.and that, from their language, they, the deponents, judged them to be Mandin goes; also the affidavit of Boboo, one of the Amis tad prisoner?, made through an interpreter, that the two girls were born in the same town with himself, and that they were brought from Africa in the same ship with himself. The argument was closed on Friday evening and the opinion of the judge was expected on Sat urday, but of what was done on that day we have no accounts. An indication however, seemed to be afforded in the course of the argument, that the Court would have great difficulty in holding these chil dren to be property. It was argued by Staples, and justly, that if these children were property, and liable as such to the claim of salvage, that then it would follow that they might be sold at auction in the State of Connecticut For it is the usual way, when salvage is decreed, to decree a certain per cent upon the value of the property, and in or der to determine what that value is, to authorize the property to be sold at auction. . Judson, the District Judge, and who, as the author of the celebrated Connecticut Black Act, is not supposed to be favorably inclined towards the prisoners saw the danger of this argument, and he interrup ted the counsel, with the declaration, " that he had already declared in the district Court, that these Africans could not be sold in Connecticut, as slaves, but that salvage might be awarded on the vessel and cargo, and the value of the slaves, f recognized to be lawfully slaves, might be con sidered in making up the amount to be allowed. But we apprehend the establishment of such a doctrine would overturn the most settled nnn ciples by which courts are governed in deci ding salvage. As to the salvage question, we are inclined to think that Capt. Gedney will fail altogether in es tablishing any claim to salvage. Jl he question whether any claim of property can be established against iny of the Amistad pris oners, seems to us extremely clear, and to lie in a very small compass. 1st. Under the Spanish law these prisoners are not slaves. By repeated decrees of the Span ish Government, the African slave trade is abol ished, and has become a criminal offence. All Africans imported into the Spanish territories are entitled to their liberty. But then it is said, that the Spaniards have a good vnma facie title to these slaves, because they possess a permit from the custom house, by which they are authorized to transport these slaves from Havana to Principe. and that our Courts can enquire no further. To deprive a man of his liberty, and to deliver him up to another as property, is the highest power a Court can exercise. It is a power in no respect short of the power ofinflictingcapital punishment : and it would be just as reasonable to ask a Court to hang a man upon a technical quibble, an offi cial lie, a false certificate, which the Courtknew to be false, as to enslave a man upon suth grounds. Ihe Courts are fond enough of quibbles and tech nicalities, but they have never vet gone to this ength. Ifthese Africans are to be delivered up. on the ground that by the laws of Spain they are slaves, the proof of that fact must be thoroughly sifted, and satisfactorily established.' 2nd. Whatever thecondition of these Africans might be under the Spanish law, in Connecticut they are free men, and as such thev have all the rights of free men. They are not property, be cause in Connecticut it is not acknowledged that property can exist in living human bodies. The state of Connecticut, under the United states Constitution, is bound to deliver up, to be carried out of the Slate, such slaves as have escaped into her territories, from any of the slave-holding States of the Union. 1 hese persons are delivered up not as properly, but under that particular clause of trie Constitution, which does not apply to foreign Stales. This doctrine has been held over and over again in the New England States and now settled law. As to the pretended claim under the treaty with spam, that relates only to property captured from pirates and brought into this country. A the Circuit Court has decided that there is no pi racy committed, there is the end of the matter. The Amistad Prisoners. in Judge Thompson having decided on Friday his instructions to the Grand Jury, that no crim inal charge existed against any of the Amistad prisoners, of which the Court had any jurisdic lion, a writ of habeas corpus was sued out in be half of all these prisoners, and on Saturday after noon they were brought into Court. It seemed to be taken for granted, after what ha dropped from Judge Judson, in the course of the argument on Friday, in the case of ihe three chil dren, that the claim of Captain Gedney for sal vage, so far at least as the Africans were concern ed, could not be sustained. With respect to the other two claims, under color of which the 'Marsh all held these Africans as prisoners, viz : the libels of Montez and Ruez, claiming these negroes as their property ; and the libel of the District Attor ney, setting out first the claim of the Spanish Minister, and calling upon the Court to decide the validity of it ; and secondly, alleging that these Africans are free persons, brought to this country in violation of the laws prohibiting the African slave trade, alleging that they ought to be restor ed to their own country, and praying the Cour to take the necessary steps for enabling the Pres ident of the United States to send them back with respect to these two libels, and the claim of the Marshal to the custody of the negroes, by vir tue of the process issued thereon, Judge I homp son said, "that if the District Court had in fact, jurisdiction over the claims thus brought before it he would not, upon a writ of habeas corpus, fore stall or interfere with the decision which the Dis trict Court might make upon a question thus legal ly brought before it. If that decision should be wrong, there was a remedy by way of appeal, first to the Circuit and then to the supreme Court Whatever the opinion of the Court might be as to the ultimate decison of the case, or however ab horrent it might be to the feelings of the Court to keep these persons in prison, or to view them as property, still that question of property was a ques lion to be decided, and if the District Court had jurisdiction or tnat question, men it was proper that a trial oi the question should be had there. r. s. We have just learned, that on Monday imuiiiim, uuuc x iiuuijiauu uciivcieu me opinion ot the Circuit Court, on the habeas corpus ques- ticn, deciding that the District Court, under its genera! admiralty powers, had jurisdiction of the question wnetner tne Airicans were property or not, and if property, to whom they belonged. The Circuit Court on that ground declined to in terfere, and would helve this case to be tried in the first instance by the District Court. Judge Lhompson observed, that if it should turn out, mat in pomi oi inci, me seizure was made within the Southern District of New York. then the trial of the questions ; in dispute must first be had in that District, and the District Court of Connecticut would be ousted of its jurisdiction. The jurisdiction of the District Court seems to have been sustained entirely on the authority of the case of the Antelope. The case of the An telope was this. She was a Spanish slaver, & was illegally seized by an American cruiser & brought into the United states, against the will of the per sons in possession. It was contended that al though the capture was illegal, and the ship must be restored, yet the slaves on board, having been brought into the United States, were free, and could not be given up to their formerowners. But the Court decided that they would put matters back into the condition'in which they stood, prior to the illegal interference on the part f the Amer ican cruiser. Therefore they gave up the slaves. The facts in the case of the Amistad are totally different. That the ship was taken possession of by Capt. Gedney, at the express instance and re quest of Montez and Ruiz, the former owner of the laves, and was brought into the jurisdiction of the Unietd states, at their desire. Ihe case then so far as Montez and Ruiz are concerned, stand pon the same ground as if the vessel had been brought into New London by the persons on board in which case there would be no pretence for any imenerence on uie part oi trie District court. . If, in the present case, the Court should under take to act upon this same principle of status in quo, wnicn governed tne Antelope case, it would be much more proper to deliver up Montez and Ruez to the Africans, than the Africans to Mon tez and Ruez. At the time when the American interference commenced, the Africans were no Ion ger slaves. They had vindicated their libertv, and on the other hand, had reduced Montez and Ruez to a condition of servitude. lie vessels and our government are taking, in sti fling the struggles of these poor men for freedom. Affecting Appeal. The following is evidently from the peri of Dr. Nelson, now of Quincy, Illinois, formerly a slaveholder.- If northern ministers and professors of religion will not hear him, neither would they be persunded though one should rise from the dead. We wish that by some fair means this letter might find its way into the Vermont Chronicle that it might be pondered by those ministers in the late Convention who turned off the claims of the dying slave under the plea that their testimony against the in of slavery would do no good. From the Emancipator. August 27th, 1S39. Brother Leavitt, During the last few days I have been conversing with some members of the Presbyterian church, why own slaves. I was at tending a protracted meeting about thirty miles beyond the Mississippi. I felt a desire to ask cer tain individuals, on whose veracity and on whose judgment I could rely, concerning the statement that " proftssors are beginning to feel unwilling to sell men and women." I ascertained that it is so indeed; and that this sensitiveness is on the in crease. Four years ago, it did not seem amiss (in the view of the brethren with whom I communed) either to buy or to sell. I look at the present state of affairs with more than astonishment ! Iain as tonished, (not because I did not expect that dis cussion would be certain victory ; but) that debate, so seldom and so faint, should have a result so speedily! Discussion has been suppressed : but even a little agitation has had an effect, blessed promising oh, how promising ! ! ! What will the next four years accomplish ! The black veil cannot be held between them and the sun always ! It is beginning to rot into holes already. Dear brother, I write you this short, hasty, and imperfect sheet, wishing to make one request of many brethren who read your paper, or who live near to those who do. I make this one request, because I feel compelled to do fo. I make it of those with whom I do hope to sing'alout Calvary thousands of years from now! May I not ex plain what that favor is, and why I feel so sore ly urged to ask it ? I was kitting on a log, under a quiet oak, by the side of one who is well informed, well educated, (and still better) well filled with principles of truth and of integrity ! When I asked him what impres sion the views of the brethren of the East (who differ with the abolitionists,) has upon those who practice slavery his answer was, ' O, our slave- holding brethren here, think that they have their countenance"! .' ! 0, dear fellow professor, I know that you will confess that whatever it is which receives most constantly, most zealously, and most urgently our reproof, our admonition, and our deplorable entreaties, has the least of our countenance." That which we talk most against has the least of our countenanc?. Those to whom I try to preach, think that you have nev er (by letter, or in any other way) called to them : that you have never anectionately entreated them to turn against oppression ! It is thought that you reprove abolitionists, refuse them your pulpits, and speak and write against them. Oh that slavehol ders might either feel or fancy your opposition ! 0, dear fellow professing immortal, when I try to preach at the hre-side of the master and mistress the obstacle which seems to me the most insur mountable, is, tchen thev believe that they have " your countenance." They say that vour ju Jg ment is impartial, because vou own no slaves .' O. dear friends, dear brothers and sisters in the Lord, the lavor 1 have to ask rs that you will try and tell them that slavery has not vour countenance. have nothing to request, as to the way in winch this might be done. (I know that you could do it an nunareu fold more plainly, allectionately, and ably, than some have done, who were neverthe less successful.) My request is nothing more than the simple favor, that you will inform them, how little slavery has vour countenance. Oh, dear friends, I do believe that the effect would be won derful, surpassing vour highest expectations, a thousand fold. May we act speedily whilst we have time to act. D. N.

The hearing before the District Court willcome on in November. From the Boston courier, If the slaves recently brought into New London in tne Cuba achooner had been Lnghnhmen in stead of Africans, and the master were an Alger ine, instead of a Spaniard, how much would the public press echo with their praise ! Sunnose they had risen upon their oppressor, on their way from one Moorish port to another, had spilled his blood to gain their freedom, and then steered for a free country. They would have been publicly justified, if net hailed as heroes. Now they are arrested as pirates. They will undoubtedly be sent back to the tender mercies of their Algiers, and hanged 83 felons, for doing what nearly every man among us leel it praisworthey to, were their case his own. 1 hey are ignorant and degraded, doubtless, but this gives them a stronger claim to our pity. Yet not a voice of sympathy is raised for them m this nation born in Revolution, and whose foundation principle is the right of resisting tyranny unto blood.
