District Court nt Chicna,' in re ply to the usual question, whether the prisoner had anything to say why tee sen tent-? of the law should not be pronounced against him. We publish it as a matter of local interest, wholly dissenting, of course, from most of the positions taken by JIr. II. May it tilease the Court: I have; few words to sny why sentence should iot be pronounced against me. I am found guil ty of the Fugitive Slave Law, and it may appear strange to your Honor that I have no sense of guilt. I came, sir, from the tyranny of the Old World, when but a lad, landed upon the American shores, having left my kindred and native land in pursuit of some place whore men of toil would not be crushed by the property holding class. otiunencmg the straggle of life at the tender ago of twelve yrs, a strangt-r in a strange land, having tpfcearn my bread by the sweat of my browjjrour Honor will bear with me, unarcustJiswi as I am to appear in courts, much lelfU) address them. I have feared that I nyyht fail in bearing mys-lf on this occasion worthy of the place anil the position I oc cupy, and the principles involved inj the case before you. 1 say your Honor, there fore, if I fail in observing the tissual firms of the place, it will bo from a wan. of judgment and error of the head and not of the lieart. Therefore, I do not think 1 s-hall fare worso at the. hands of jour Honor, if 1 st:ite plainly my views and feelings on the great !ie.-tion of the age the rights of man. 1 fcc-1 that it is a case that will be referred to long after you ami I havw gone to meet the great Judge ol i! i i t t .t . It has been argued bv the prosecution that 1, a forei truer, protected bv the laws , .. of my adoj ted country, should be the last I to disobey those laws; but in this I find 1 nothing that snould destroy any sympa thy lor the crushed toil in all lands. children of Surely 1 have been protected. The fish in the rivers, the quail in the stubble, the deer in the forest, have been protected. Shall I join hands with those who have made wicked laws, in crushing out the poor black man. for whom there is no pro tection but in the crave, where the wick ed cease from troubling and the weary are at rest. It is true. sir. I am a foreigner. I first saw the liht among the rugged but free hills of Scotland; a land, sir, that never was conquered, aud where a slave never breathed Let a slave set foot on that shore, and his chains fall olf forever, and he becomes what iod made him a man In that fur oil' land 1 heard of vour free institutions, vour i.r.iirie lands, vour jiro- p-cte.l canals and vour growing towns. Twenty-two years ago I landed in this city. I immediately engaged on the pub lic works on tie' canal then building, that connects this city with the great river of the We-t. In the process of time the State failed to piocure money to carry on the public works. I then opened a prairie; farm to get bread for my family, and 1 am one of the men that made Chicago what it is today, bavin shipped some of j the fir-t gram that was exporte from this city 1 am, sir, one ol tne pioneers of Illinois, w ho have gone through the many hardship of the settlement of new country. I hav s.j-nt my lest days the strength of my manhood. I have eleven children who are natives of this my adopted country. No living man, sir, has greater interest in its welfare; and it is because I am opposed to carry out wick ed and ungodly laws, and love the free dom of my country, that I stand before you today. Again, sir, I ought not to be sentenced because, as has been argued bv the prose cution. I am an Abolitionist. 1 have no ! apologies to make for being an Abolition ist. When I to this country, like the mass from beyond the sea, I was a lmo crat; there was a charm in the name. Hut, fir, 1 soon found I had to go beyond the name of a party in thi.s country, in or der to know anything of its principles or practice. I soon found that however the great parties of my adopted country dif fered upon banks, taritis and land ques tions, iu one thing they agreod, in trying which could ttoop th9 lowest to gain the favor of the mot cursed system of slavery that ever swayed an iron roil over any na tion, the Moloch which they had set up, to which the' ottered as human sacrifice millions of the children of toil. As a man who had tied from the crushing aris tocracy of my native land, hew can 1 sup port a worse aristocracy in this land? 1 was compelled to give iny humble name aod influence to a party who proposed at least to embrace in its sympathies, all classes of men, from all quarters of the globe. In this choice I found myself in the com pi ny of Clarkson and Wilberlorce in my native land, and Washington and Franklin, and many such in this boasted land of the free; and more than all these, the IJedeemor in whom I humbly trust for acceptam e with my (Jod, who came to heal the broken hearted, to preach delive reiice to the captive, to set at liberty those who were bruised, yea, this rery religion binds me to those in bonds as bound with them. Teli me, sir, with these views can 1 be anything but an Abolitionist? Surely for this I ought not to be sentenced. Again, sir, I ought not be sentenced, be cause the fugitive slave law under which I am torn from my family and business by the subtle tools of the siave power, the slave breeder and slave hunter, is at va riance with both the spirit and the letter of the Constitution. Sir, I place myself upon the Constitution in the presenc of a nation who have the Declaration of In dependence read to them every fourth of July, and profess to believe it. Yes in the presence of civilized man, I hold up the Constitution of my adopted country as clear from the blood of men and fron a tyranny that would mike crowned heads blueh. The parties who prostituted the Constitution to the support of slavery, are traitors; traitors not only to the liberties of millions of enslaved countrymen, but traitors to the Constitution itself, which they have sworn to support A foreigner upon your soil, I go not to the platforms of contending parties to find truth. I go, sir, the Constitution of my country; the word slave is not there to be found. I read, "We, the people of the United States, establish justice," yes, sir, esta blish justice "to promote the general welfare and to secure the blessing of lib erty to ourselves and our posterity, do or dain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America." Those were the men that had proclaimed to the world that all men were created equal, that they were endowed by their Creator with certaiu inalenable rights Life Liber ty and the pursuit of Happiness; and con- tenked even unto ueatn lor seven long years. Can it be, sir, that these great men under cover of those hallowed words, in tended to make a government that should outrage justice and trample upon liberty, as no other government under the whole heavens ever dene. This dreadful power that has compelled the great political par ties of the country to creep in the dust for its power ; that has debauched te a large extent the Christianity of the nation ; that bids a craven priesthood stand with golden rule in hand and defend the rob bing of mothers- of thtir babes, and hus bands of their wives; that bids courts de cree injustice. Sir, I plant myself upon the Constitution, or temand for justice and liberty, and say to this bloody Moloch, away I Sir, th world has never furnished so great a congregation of hypocrites an as those that formed the Constitution, if they designed to make it the greatest slave-holder, slrve-breeder and i-lave eat'-h-er oa earth. Ho is a s:reat slaveholder that has a thousand slaves, but if this law is si true exponent of the Constitution, this government ordained for justice and liberty, holds four millions of slaves. sir! no! for the honor of the fa thers of my country, I appeal from the bloody slaveholding statute to the liberty loving constitution. While these father's lived, .State after State, iu carrying out tho spirit of the constitution, put an end to the dreadful system. The great Washing ton, in his last will and testament, carried out the spirit of the constitution. I!ut, sir, the law under which von mav sen tence me, violates loth the "letter and the spirit of the constitution. I have a word to say upon the articlesof the constitution which it is claimed the fugitive slave law is designed to carry out. " Xo person held to service or labor in one State- under the laws thereof, escaping into another, shall in consequence of any law or regulation theruin, be discharged from such service of Tabor, but shall be delivered UpcrtttteM claim of the party to whom such service or labor is due." That is the provision that it is claimed transforms the government into a mon ster of ini'iuity. I have road over and over that article, interpreted by till laws of language known to a plain man. How these three or four liiK-scnn transform this I ,-overnmciit, oidaincvl to secure juitice. into a mean tool to aid the t.ltiiideieis of craua'a, inc; ue.-iroyer o: homes, tlie ra- vishers of women, and the oppre-soi of men, to cairy on their hellish work how it cu, ,1., i .... ..., . .... -ri.. . ,I.a v.. j artjc,0 binlJ, ihi.

Here, sir, is a ca-c involving thi .j'le.-tion of li-b'-ity and hundnds of doll, us of money. The law, sir, under which I appear Lofoie you, overrides these plain provi-ioiis, and commits this whole question to one man. and offers him a bribe to trarr.ple right ai d libeity under foot. I know, s,ir, it may be said Jim tiray was a slave, and ml entitled to thee humane provisions. Had he ne ver worn the chain of the oppressor, nor felt the lash of the bloody ta-k master had he been born in Canada, or anywhere else on the plobe had he hern a citizen of one of the States of this Union, and never been enslaved, it would have been all the same. Hislibertv would have been strick en down, and he been given to the party claiming his life-long toil and your Com- missioner would have pocketed the bribe oflered by this law for doing such a crime against humanity and the plainest provi sions ot the Constitution. No, sir, in a Court of the United States, while the Constitution provides for trial by jury, I ought not to be sentenced for rais ing my hand to rescue a fellow man from a mob that would strip him of his liberty and life-long toil without duo process of! law, without trial bv jury. Sir. this law I tramples so flagrantly upon the spirit ami l.il.- .i it. 1 Vt.i..i.... aK.A I -..-l A.-a, lettr of the Constitution, that I ought not to te sentenced. Before passing from the Constitutional objections to this law, I would call the at ten'ion of your Honor to the partiality of the law, which is so at variance with the designs of the fathers in organizing this government. No man can read the Con stistution in which the word slave cannot be fouud; from which the idea that a man could be reduced to a thing, and held as property, was carefully excluded no man, I say, can read that Constitution, and coma to the conclusion that slavery was to be fostered, guaranteed cuul piotceted far be yond everything else in the country. Ad mit that Jim Gray was Phillip's property, how comes it that that particular property is more sacred than any other property ? Phillip's horse escaped from him, and is found in a distant State, but the President of the United States, and every depart ment of Government, is not put on the track until the horse is found, and then return him to Phillip's stable, and then pay the whole bill from the nation's treas ury. No sir. But his sl?e escapes he runs away, and, for sonio reason, his property in man is so much more holy and sacred, that the whole Govern ment is bound to take the track and hunt the poor, panting fugitive down, and carry him back to his chains aud bondage at the Government's expense. Sir, under a Constitution unstained by the word slave, we have a law magnifying slave property above all other property in the nation a lawgiving it guarantees that no ether property could possibly obtain. Sir, the partiality of this law is so great, that it stands opposed to a Constitution that guarantees equal justice and protec tion to all. John G. Fee is driven out of his Ken- tucky home, and robbed of the fruits of his life long toil. There is no power to se cure him his home, or protect him in his rights of property or opinion. But had John G. Fee enly owned a slave, and his slave escaped, the Government, under this law, would have followed his slave to the utmost limits of the United States, and re turned his slave to him at its own ex pense. Y'our Houor will pardon me, (if I need pardon,) but I cannot, for the life of me, see what there is in robbing a man of his inalienable rights and enslaving him for life, that should entitle it to the special and peculiar protection of national law. . I am aware, sir, that I shall be reminded that judges, marshals, attorneys and many citizens regard this law as constitutional, and stand ready to execute it, though it trample every principle of the Declaration of Independence in the dtML Sir, no law ran be enacted o bad but that it will find men deluded or bae enough to execute it The law of Kgypt that consigned the new born babe to the slaughter, lound tools lor its execution. The Moody decree of IIc- rod, found men ready to obey the law of i the country, though it commanded the ! slatighti-r of the inr.occnts of the province. Sir, tell me not of men ready and willing j to execute the law. My Redeemer, whose j name I am hardly worthy to speak, and j yet whose name is all my trust, although he knew no sin, yet he was crucified by law. Again, sir, it will be seen that some whom Uiv world calls lctors of divinity and doctors of law, have undertaken to prwve slavery was guaranteed by the Con stitution. If that be so, in the name of the Host lIighiod, tear out the red strip of blood; it was not written by the Angel (Jabriel, nor nailed to the throne of tho Al io ghty. If slavery is in it, it is a covenant I with death and an agreement with hell. Hut, sir, I have one consideration more that I will urge why sentence should not be pronounced against me. This law, which i think I have proved outrageous to the rights of man, is so obviously at via-ria-.ioe with the law of that Cod that com mands me to love Him with all my soul, mind ami strength, and my neighbor as myself, and the Redeemer that took upon him my natureand theuaturo of poor Jim iray,.has been so particular in Mling me who my neighbor is, that t!ie path of duty is plain to me. mis law so pi.imiy irani- ; J... i,on the divine law that it cannot be i l.;...i: i.

In that book I find some special enactments given to tin i Hebrew ccmmonwealth that leaves m ; in t.o doubt as to my duty in reteience to tins ( law. ''He that steaUth a man and sclk-th j him. or if he be found in hi hands, he .ha!l surely be put to death.

These! plain .-taints-, with inany ; more that I might give, leaves me in no i doubt as to the mind of the mir-l.anging i Jehovah, in reference to man stealing and : slive hunting. Sir, the whol; system of i slavery originated in man stealing, and is I perpetuated by fraud, and violence and i plunder. Other may have tlieir doubts ! us to Cieir duty iupW the law.

Iam 1 readv to die if need be for the oppressed of my race, but slavery must die, and when my country shall have passed through the terrible conflict which the destruction of slavery must cost; and when the history of the great struggle shall be candidly written, the rescuers of Jim Gray will be considered as having done honor to God, t humanity, and to themselves. I am told" there is no appeal from this Court, yet I do appeal to the court of high heaven, where Judge Drummond aud Judge Caton, tho rescuer aad the reacued, shall all have to stand at the judgment seat of the Most High. I have, sir, endeavored to obey the divine law, and all the bwsofmy country that do not conflict with the laws of God.

Instead of theori- : jlls,tead of talking aboi "r-irialism i nes tc secret of their success. But to return to my proposition. Al though not reared like you, sir, in a col lege or university, and having but a plain and limited education, I am learned enough to understand the Constitution of i this country, which teaches me that this republic is a confederacy of independent sovereign States, each entitled to enact iu own lawa for the projier management of its own local ailairs, without dictation from any other State, or from the Congress ftf the United States, or from any power outside the jurisdiction of such State. In proposing myself as an opponent to you, I hope you will be too generous to class me with those Germans whom your party charges vith following the Democratic banner through ignorance. Against this charge, which has been repeatedly made by your party, I most solemnly protest, and still further no I protest against the unfounded boast that a majority of the adoptwd citizens and by "citizens," 1 mean men who have a rielu to vote, who have any sympathy with the dogmas of the Republicau party. The industrious mechanic knows only too well that his lv bor will be rewarded properly only so long as we maintain the Union, and that he will gain nothing, out lettins loose a hit do of African negroes, with no aspiration, and no wants familiar to the European or Ameri can mechanic. He knows to well that all the cries about the "poor bondman," are only proffered in the hope of obtaining fat offices thereby : because ho has tho unde niable fact before his eyes that no man, even the most fanatical Abolitionist, asso ciates with the African, even if he is a free born man. The people know too well fliat the negro is nothing but the stirrup from which the negro-worshipper means to vault into the seat of power. In point of fact, nearly all those of our countrymen who make so much noise about this slavety question aro the young immigrants, the majority not able to speak tlu Luglish language, and not yet entitled to vote. Sir, these are the ma.-sea who form the majority of tho "intelligent Ger mans," you sir i your party so loudly pro claim as your ti.ppoi ters. But, sir, the masses of the German adopted citizen who have a right to vote are lotal to the Constitution transmitted to us by the Father ot the American republic, and consider that sacred instrument as the vovjna ch.irta of our Hlitical rights and liberties, and not, as your associates do, "an agreement with death, and a cove nant with hell." The majority of the Ger man adopted citizens w ill follow no leader who will not uphold the Hag and " keep step to the music of the Union" a union cf Slave States and free States a union formed by the people of twelve States and but one free State. We declare further that we hold only to that kind of "higher law" which has iu foundation in the Constitution ami is in perfect harmony with that instrument, and not to the kind of bhjiWr law which originates in the brains of theorists, ex perimentalists and Utopians.

I do not jafi. in all their dttails, sut. i scribe, but I, a plain, humble, uneduqated j nian (crinalry a m'-chamc a cabinet : maker) propose to demolish the whole structure of the Republican party in tif tecn minutes, provided you will answer air the questions I shall put to you, fairly and squarely.
