consequence of their orderly condiuct on the

they appeared to take in the admirable dis

We cannot help adding our testimony to
that of Mr. Noble, for a more orderly or at
tentivccoingregation-we never saw, and we
have no-doubt, from the good conduct of a 1
portion of the prisoners that we-had access
to on some prbeious occasions, that great
good will accrue not only to the individual

-Mr. Editor : The-foregoing subnhject is-one
p'ifis causing great excitement through
out the :1Vhth and - breadth of this conti
nent, and certainly not more than the sub
ject dcsionW.. It seeiusto the writer of this
article an inalienable right-a right con
fered by the laws of nations on manm-to
enigxtitg, or transfer his abode from one
State to another, or from one country to an
-iher, whenever he finds it to his interest,
Had-this right not been recognized by ojr
ancestors; the red manr would now be hint
ing the buffalo on York Island. Our coun
try has recognized this right-to be-iherent
in man, while European monarchs, rather
tyrants, as in all other things, have denied
his right to their vassals, or esubjects, n
less they complied with certain laws, and
obtained passports. There is no doubt but
nations should see that their country should
not suthr any detriment from the free ad
mission of foreignersmteepecially from sus
picious characters, or persons banished for
lyA(eonduct, from their own countriee- Of
course a good and moral people are an ac
quisition to any country, and such an emi
gration should nevercause any apprehension
The question to be solved nowir Congress
is, whether the subject of one government
can emigrate and acquire the rights of citi
zenship in another. The writer's opinion is
that he can; andnriot only an ordinary cit!
zen, but even one who holds office, and-ca
sequently taken a special oath to sustain hji.J
own government. For, so long as a nman
violates no law or jubtico or equity, it is
certain that the-law ofliaturo binds him to
no certain place. Tut it might seem that
when the laws of the nation wherein a manu
happen tobe born, would-prohibit his emi
grating, that he would be bound to comply
with the requirements of that law. Yet, as
these laws would seem to be too seveor, nay,
cruel and the _wru5itaahl b 10
man d ,to comply with them. On
sulbject,- DeVattel says: "sThe e
reign abuses hispower, aid his sub
jects to slavery; an portable sine
his ions for - their own utage,
hemtight grantit to the ihut in- d
.cotreneice;-or danger to astate." Fur
thermore, Wheaton sa very-man has o
a right to quit his iin order to settle i
in another,4 , by that step, he does not d
expose welfare of his country." And
again " Whatever may be the extent of cI
laims of a man's native, country upon iu
upolitical allegiance, there can- be no I
doubt that-the native born-subject~of-one y
country may become the citizen of another v
in time of -peace, for thrpurposes of trade."
_The foregoing. is surely consonant with v
-sounslo, as there is no law of na- i
turi to com a man to. remain in one b
-place in :preferee~e to another; and id
mnrely, a -a maisealc obllgstoi if
he observes the laws of the ladn long as
they afford 'm`rotection; and it ms n
not that ss*. it- _ti officer,
esik a -speelal oath; for that oath only q
strengthens hisnatural obligations; bntit d
auperinduces n new obligations,fora citi-_
son in the private walks of life is as amen- a
able to the laws of his country for treache. -
ry, or, treason, as any officer, whether civil
or military. .
The foregoing subject should long ago
have been decided. The warof 1812hould h
ave put an end to~lt; the speech of the w
lion. illiaw Gaston is stronger and more u
forcible 9nitthan any "Monroe doctrine."
Besides, thee decision of the Court of t1
Kiing'TsBenelf dif-u-lud i place iJngE y
hors du combat on the snbject. Wheaton, m
his " Treatise on International Law," gives li
an instance of an Englishman who emigra- T
ted to the United States, bectme-a-citizen, tl
tradedi- ith the EastIndies, and consequent- g
ly clashed with the privileges of the East
India Company, as no Englishman could ti
trade to or with that country, except the b
East India Company. Yet the Court of
King's Beneh d'bided in favor of this Eng
lishman, as not being any longer an English n
subject. Had he been an Irishman, or had ti
the judges fores~q~ Fen anism, the decision it
might.have been rever L -
Shoulddl.l thie -foiisgn eiin this country ii
be denied. the privilege of becoming citizens v
of the United States, what arrendless source h
of annoyance would it not be to them. There ti
are but few States in the Union in which
there are not laws obnoxious to foreigners 8
holding property. Why should the United
States tender an oath of allegiance to for- S
eigners, exact all the duties of citizens of
hlimn-toserve onpuries, to be drafted into ;n
theiari~nyl,^it~c:cihey do not-t i-to oz -
tend to them the protection afforded. to na- n
tive-born citizens? It is, indeed, a strange c
anomaly to see a man, perhaps, drafted into t'
tne service of the United States, and after
having served faithfully, t'rreturn -to the e
land of his birth to recover or to recuperate
his halth-shattered in such service-again b
drafted into. the i-ervice of his kihig or Prince. c
ItCis idetced a paradox, to think that a man i
should be the sulijcct of two independcnt
pow ers. " Yoh caninot s(rve two mansters ."1
It is both unjust and ridiculous on the Ipart I
of the United States, to exact military ser
vice of foreigners, to expose i;-enand limb I
on the bloody lattle field, and -then leave,
perchance, that same individual to languish 1
away/n a British dungeon, or a Prussian I
canp, for language spoken in the United 1
tates. If this be the protection foreigners
are going to receive, it is etter for thr in, I
and more hlonorable-for the- United States,
thaltthey be exonerated at once from the I
-= f citizenship. "
Suppose a German, who fought bravely
for .ote U oign, and a -Yankee, who basely
fled to Canada, were traveling in Germany,
and both were arrested for the same imagi
inary violation of law, will the United4
Statesicall for the release of the dastardly
coward, and leaveis-once brave soldier in 1
irons, because he did not happen to be born
the United States? No-never! I The
pride of the American people is aroused,
and they would not, nor will not suffer sueach 1
an insult to be offered to their nation. The
renewalof tlbe s'enes of 1812 is preferable.
Like the two dogs, spoken-of-in fable, fight
ing for a lbone, while a third snatches it
away, our representatives are fighting for
office, whilst European monarchs are usurp
ing their rights ; hut tho people are jeanloa
