Reasons for Chase's Unwillingness to Preside at the Trial of Davis. &e &Ct, &Ct the natur al 1? fir. r. . i ' r . Vf i t , i i From the Ciacinnati.Commercial. The teleraoh from Wasbioeton aonoun ces. periodically, some sensation about trial of the rebel chief, and the public ally inquire why something is not done about the matter. The latest news is that Chief Justice Chase peremptorily refuses to hold a oircuit court in Virginia on the pretext that the writ of habeas corpus is still suspen ded, notwithstanding the supreme court of the United States has been sitting for years under the shadow of bayonets, with martial law prevailing in the District of Columbia, and the circuit court of Kentucky has keen held for a long time under similar circumstances, without dreaming of its dig nity being thereby infringed in the least de gree. . Early in October, 18G5, PresidenlJohnson, &s annears from the published correspon dence communicated to oongress, addressed note to Chief Justice Chase, inquiring hen he would bold his court .in v lrgima. a. there were imDortant cases or treason tor trial, and received a reply that the court could not be held. The president thea, in his annual message, iu Deoembsr, 1865, call ed the especial attention of congress t j tbe necessity of some legislation to remove any difficulties in the way of holding trials for treason. Senator Doolittie, iu conformity with this saeeestwn. introduced a bill on the aubject, wbich has sinoe been reported trom the judiciary committee ot the providing that, in trials tor treaaon, jurors who are able to render an impartial verdiot on the evidence shall not be disqualified on nnount of havine formed and expressed an opinion from the publication of facts of pub lic notoriety, or from hearsay, and also al . l.ow'mf a vrrit of error to the supreme court of the Coitod States, in order that there may be an adiudicated precedent of the highest judicial tribunal on all questions involved in i the iseue. Now the chief difficulty iathe way of a trial of Jefferson Davis for treason has b8en in the obtaining a jury, because of the publ;e m- tority of the facts in the case an obstacle that has become so serious in the trial of criminals, that already several states have I enacted lavs declaring that jurors shall not ' be disqualified by having formed and ex pressed an opinion from hearsay and news paper publications, for it was fast becoming, '- practically, almost the rule that the greater ! and more notorious the criminal, the les chanoe of punishing him, from the impossi bility of getting an intelligent and competent iurv in the case. The atate of Ohio enacted a law to this eneei, aiaron o, ioou ; wnicn was held constitutional by her supreme court this winter, in the case of Cooper, hung for murder in Portage county. The bill of Senator Doolittie was drawn to accord with the ruling of Chief Justice Mar shall, an the celebrated Burr case, who, after full argument by distinguished counsel, on the very question of challenges to a jury, said : "If, for example, a juror had said that levying an army for the purpose of subjugatingthe govern ment of the United States by torce, and arraying thit army in a warlike manner, amounted to tress on. no person could suppose him on that accoun unfit to serve on the jury. Tbe opinion would bo one in which all must concur. The argument ilrawn from the situation ot England during the rebellion of 1715 and 1745, witii respect to certain prominent characters whose situation made it a matter ol unnsual noteriety, that they were the objects of the law, ia founded entirely on tue absolute necessity of the case, and the total and obvious impossibility of obtaining a jury whose minds were not already made up. While this nec essity exists, the rule, perhaps, must bend to it ; but the rule will bend no further than is required I ! 1 by actual necessity." (Burr's tnal, by Vt. Aobert rj'J ' son, vol. 1, pp. 418,419.) Col. Barr, after this intimation trom tne .1 I i t 1 I' r.t It f 1 j " : I f court, on account ot tne aeiay or ooiaining iurors, consented to be tried by men who de- f5 ?MJ dared they hud fjruied and expressed an un- t tJ favorable opinion in iiib case, muugu iuCJf believed that they could render an impartial u, verdiot, aocording to the eyidenc-e produced before them on the trial. t'i Sumner and Stevens, with taer peculiarly ls loyal clique have persistently obstructea any J 1 oonTessional action on t'ais practical bill, f ' thelatter declaring that to try and execute ' Jefferson Davis for treason ould bs aimply i judioial murder, bocause it is in conflict with their favorite tneory wai uu,ia w iu uo iros-i. : - 1 ft Hi and the so-called seceded ' ' Btates as conquered territories a doctrine in direct conflict with the decision of the United I i States supreme oourt in the prize cases, in 4 I which the judges, though differing as to the F time our civil war began, unanimously : I that while the government, during its v ' f o i i 5 14 t S f I" i oi' U i it 5 f ! i i h , - 5- - i gress, oouia treat tne rebels as oemgerenis, this did not divert their allegiance, or oper ate as an estoppel to their punishment far treason alter peace was restored. (2 Black's Rep. 073, C74 ) The true reason of the permBtnt effort of certain politicians of the radical sohool to V prevent the trial of JeUerson Dv9 before a I- oivil tribunal is that such a trial would make natent to the public the fact that, m regard , to the dootrino of etato rights, upon w nioh Jefferson Davis justified secession and war Gainst coercion by the general government, I ?h?i?ild, by their previoas record and ex j they eianuj identically the same , pressed OP10""' out hi theory first . plf0'"ntVt"awnknd forcible resis he "rl SSI l war against , , tance w 3-.-, T - tnm9 parties !-ttoMWi' unlon ofth.se ft the one snDorui--6"-T . t.A. ,- H d even other mbwuv-- dSation .nd VSSiTS Jones vs. Van Zant, in McLean's Renorts. in ioz, to tne ceieDrated Uberlin fugitive slave resoue cases, ex-carte Bushnell. exnarte Langston, in 1859, reported in Ninth Ohio State Reports, when, as governor of Ohio. through the attorney general, C.

Davis for carry u.e this dootrine into practical operation on a magnificent scale. 10 understand tully why the chief tustice touches the subject of Davis' trial so gingerly, it is well to examine his" record as governor ot Uhio in the Uberlin cases. The writ of ha beas corpus had been made returnable before all the lodges, in Columbus, on the 25th of May, loy. The day previous, May 24, an immense convention assembled at Cleveland, where a portion of the prisoners had been confined in jail, evidently for the purpose of influencing the decision of the court, as Judge Swan's nomination was then pending bsfore the approaching state convention. "Sons of Liberty," with inflamatory banners anddevioes, were on hand, and Giddings, the presiding genius, advocated tearing down the jail, from the yard of whieh the prisoners addressed the crowd, but Gov. Chase, more prudent, preferred to engineer the difficulty into an organized conflict, in the name of state rights, as will appear by the following speech, made at the meeting, and reported in the Cleveland Herald, May 25, ISoy: "I do not wish to say, nor is it proper lor you to say, wbat tne decision ol our court soouia oe in the case. That is left to the court themselves to determine it is a matter between them, the peo- Dle. and God. I will only sav what I have tre- cnentlv said before, that as lone aa the stite ot J , -- c Ohio remains a sovereignty, and so long as 1 am chief executive, th process of her courts shall be executca. 1 ne process 01 m uu.icu uuira must not be alighted or resisted, but so lone: as 1 rnnrearnt the anvereipntv of our State I Will see I - o -j ... . that the Drocess ot our state courts shall not be in terfered with, but will be fully enforced.

John La.n?ston. a colored man was tnen called to the stand, and proclaimed to the ex cited crowd : 'Exhaust the law first for these men : but if this fail, for Rod's sake tall back uoon your natural rights, and aay to the priaon walls, 'Comedown,' and set these men at liberty." These speeches and proceeiinzi were re oublished bv the Oiiio Stale Journal, the Chase organ, on May 25, 1859, with approba tion, for effect on the supreme court 01 unio( rmfr.rq wh:m thn cares were then arguing at the capitol, and in its editorial of May 27 1859, it said : A fnr thn rarninff criticism of Gov. Chase, we need only say he simply declared his determination to do his duty as executive ot tne state oiuniu, tiz. To th iudjrament of the supreme court execu ted. We have no djbt he will make good his word whenever ths occasion may present itaelf. But if a collirion is to take place, we can say with our cotemporary, let it come, and wnn hp tn those who have foraed it upon the out raged people of Ohio." Such wera the means taken to 'educate the neonle uo" to backing Gov. Chase in a con tmnlated armed resistanoe to the federn regard to the execution of law that had been held to be c nstitutional by eve-y department of the government from its organization, and the governor repeateaiy declared, in conversation to a iormer iaw partner of Chief Justice swan, and otner prominent citizens of Columbus, Ohio, that he would, if necessary, resist the federal gov ernment by force, if the court released the prisoners, and Uol. Uamngton, now 01 ne 18th infantry, the then adjutant general cf the state, if examined under oath, would doubtless make some rich revelations as to the colleotion of arms and intention of hold ing the militia in readiness. Oa the 25th of May the ease came on for argument, A. G. Riddle for the relators, and Attornev General C. P. Wolcott appearing on behalf of the state of Ohio, insisting that the relators be discharged, Col. N. II. Swayne, now of the supreme court of the United States, and G. F. Beiden, district attorney for the United States. Gov. Chase sat m the oonrt the delivery of Attorney Gener al Woloott's argument, in the preparation of whuih he was understood largely to have par tioipated. By examining the Ninth Ohio State Reports, pp. 97 to 181, one can find the n.lhnun state ritrhts theory fully set forth a rfmahincr unecimen. for the benefit of those radicals who now inBist that congress the same unlimited power as the Rfi.l. n&rliment. take the following for example: ' "But strain : the right of the state to inquire in n th. validitv nfanv authority imposing restraint unn citizens, aa auainst any power De 11 siaie national or loreien stmds on even a firmer basis, for it results from the very nature 01 sovereignty it.oir Th firat and ch-.et characteristic ol ail nvri(Tntv is its riffht to the allegiance and serv ice of its citizens; a right fundamental to all oth er rights of the Etafe, for on this its very existence, in war or Deace. continually depends.

Hut Ohio, thank God, is still sovereign state, and has therefore never yielded this riirht as she never could yield it and still preserves her sovereignty to the federal or any oth er government. For it will not be ques tioned that tne general guardianship of the citizen is confined, not to the federal government, but to the state alone." (9 Ohio Stale Reports, pp. 103, 104.) What a thrust at th.) constitutionality of the civil riffhts bill from this immaculate rad ical of 1859. Again, glorifying the power of the stated JO trample under foot the decisions of the supreme court, he says: "As Georgia hung Graves and Tassela over the writ of error of this same supreme court God bless Georgia for tliis valiant and beneficent example."
