in circulation conoearntng these matters,
to publishing a - oard in the Washington
Union. Mr. W. O. Jones, dates hiroud

The last line intended for pnblioation in
his "AhriaVment oJ the Debates of Con
cress" that . Col. ' Benton wrote with hia
own hand were to atcomptnv (where they
will be inserted) a deba(e In tl.e Berjate of
17th June, 185 . and a abort, enereetio
speech by Mr. Webster. Thit note of Col.
Benton was: .
"l is impossible to read the gpeeehea of
.ill . J1. ! 1 U - 1..
ints session, ana near n were vue 1 iaav
words of the last crest men of that won
Jerful lime, without having . the feelings
profoundly moved by the deep danger to the
Union which stood before theca, aud the
ps'riotio attempts they made to avert that
danger.' Thia bneiKpecii made by Mr.
Webster is a noble illusion of the feelings
of the palriolio saires o' that porteotous
day. They labored to save their country,
and believed that they had done it." .
, Col, Benton at the time (April 5) that
he wrote this note was rerry . feeble in
bed and suffering aoule pain. The pa
per that he wrote on being filled, he de
sired tae in copying to add the concluding
word. Ilia striogth - railed him to add
more at Ilia moment, and he continued ait
work ofahridgmeot. : f ,.'.,:, , j
On the 61b of April, lie dictated to tne,
and I wrote a m (e to be appended to a
debate in tha Senate of July it, 1850. in
which the ooncluding gpeeoh was made by
Mr. Clay. .The note at wrjten was in these
words: , : ; .. i ...
. ."This referrence to the truith of history
in relation to lha lliuouri Compromise
comes here with a fullness and peculiarity
which are notaeen elsewhere, and under
circumstances to claim, for, it the most ab
solute verity. . The person -who panks , it
Mr. Clay the great champion of the meas

take on himself the full responsibility of
what he stys. . It was thirty , .years after
the evtnt, and after it bad given peace and
quiet to a distracted country . Now ha
taw, ihe oountrr going into tha aanaa dit
traction: disunion threatened,, and a teem'
tag breaking up ol the government In the
death of great men. One who had been
Vioa President of the United .States had
just died, and died at hit post. Those
who were still acting their parte were ver
ging to the termination of their publio and
natural livea. . Everything oombin.d to

circumstances Clay renews hia testimony
to the Missouri Compromise at a Southern
maasure, of thirty teart' duration, and he
adhert to il as the erowning principle in
the roeatnrea of 1850. .
It was manifest to ma that It was Col.
Benton's Intention to have extended thit
sole, and espeocially to remark on the Dae
tage in Mr. Clay'a speech to characteristic
of the large heart and eipmsive vision of
tha "great commoner." aa Mr, Clay in al

' ibe next objection was the anegea ' er
ror of tha court in Its'1 instruction . to the
jury as to the true construction of the sec
tion ol the fugitive mava act opo wnicn
the verdiot was predioated . " . ' .'
i Tba Court had Instructed the jury ' that
tlie allegation in the indictment, that the
harboring and concealing of the defendant
must be euoh ai to prevent tlie d'jeovery
and arrest of the aliened fugitives, that to
make out thia offense, it was not necessary
for the prosecution to prove that the dis
covery and arrest of the fugitives bad been
actually defeated that it whs not neces
sary to show an actual, permanent loss of
the slaves that the true meaning of the
word prevent, at used in the statute, was
to obstruct to hinder that thia was ' the
meaning given by Webster, who, notwith
standing tha criticism of the defendant's
counsel, was referred to by the Court, ssao
knowledged by all Americans as tlie high
estttandard autlmitr upon inch questions;
in this particular, Webster was sustained
both by Johnson , and Walker, ' and the
tame inference at to the meaning of the
word it derived from the fact that it was
in harmony with the eren eral usage and
purposes 01 tbe statute, and wlln tno use
of the same word in the first clause of the
seotion under consideration, in which the
words hinder, obstruct and prevent are
used synonymously. "'" '

Slave tot, was to be referred solely and fi
nally to the. laws of that State from whioh
it was shown that tha Tugitirea pad esoap
ed. ' ' :-: ' ";' " . ' ' ; ."
Tha next objeolion to the charge of tha
Court was founded ' upon Ibe allegation
that the Court ha I Inclined to instruct the
jury that Connelly was not bound as
mattor of law, to oe aoqunlnted witn ' tbe
laws and jii liclnl decisions of Kentucky
Tha Court did not instruct the jury that
it was incumbent upen the prosecution
dearly to prove that Irvin and Angelina
Broidhus in fact owed service aaJ labor
to Mr. Wither under the laws of Kentucky
thai they bad esoapad therefrom, and that
tha defendant had knowledge or notice ot
thets facts,' ' " ; ' '. "' " ',
' The prosecution proved oironmatances,
from which that knowledge was fairly to
be inferred; and if, in addition, it had
shown by his Utters, that he wss fully ap
prised of tha ficts' stated, any erroneous
opinion that Connelly might have enter
tained as to tbe effect and operation of tbe
laws of Kentucky, ' would not exonerate
him from the legal responsibility attach
ing to hia conduct.' . " ' ' '. .
Upon the whole, the oourt saw no reas

the defendant had had a fair trial, tbe
Court could not feel authorized or justified
