it would prove a great impediment to

that where the authority of tbe United
States was unopposed aud its courts were
open, a military commission had no juris
diction to try a citizen who was neither a
prisoner of war nor in the military ser
vice; the judgment of a majority that Con
gress could not have given a military com
mission jurisdiction, left the usurpers of
the Rump without hope that the judges
ould become their tools. If clear-eyed
justice did not hesitate to pronounce law
less tbe deeds which had a state of war for
their excuse, they could not hope it would
spare their usurpations ventured in time
of peace. Wherefore to secure themselves
in their ttsnrpations of executive power,
and to intrench themselves against the
bolt which sooner or later wss to be deliv
ered from the sovereign seat of justice, and
to shatter the right arm of their strength
and the Military Governments of the
Sooth, which were their citadels, the Rump
taking so steps backward, advances to the
audacious usurpation of the authority of
the Supreme Court of the United States.
Congress is to day the judiciary. The
pie, the Constitution, obliges the constitu
ent parts of the nation to hold their public
faith with eaoh other, the Legislative with
the Executixe and the Judiciary, obliges
each to maintain the others dutifully in an
undiminished function and authority.
The people of the United States, be it
known to these usurpers of the Rump, be
it known to all would-be military dictators,
look upon President Johnson with all his
faults and whatever his errors, if errors
there have been, as their lawful and chosen
Chief Magistrate ; upon the Justices of the
Supreme Court as the highest expounders
of their laws and sovereign will; upon the
powers lodged with them and him as the
pledge and not the peril of their liberties.
Him and them in all their rightful and
granted authority they will uphold, sup
port and defend, whosesoever bodies are
carried to jail, whosesoever necks are
stretched.
