iff anJ bit deputies are re quired to If ep the prisoners safely "until they it iis charged by (A rfus eor n laws of the VmiUi Statu." It must be recollected that when the labial corpus wi served upon the Mr ehil, the caw before the Commissioner was ia prcgrr, and near its tertnina lion. I there any precedent for such procedure1 If the SUle Court had concurrent power, the proceeding would hare been irregular and void. Under the lime government I co'jld not hare Interposed. Cm that Conn of dif fcrent government, could interpose in thil form U sanctioned by no law or precedent. Before the Supreme Court of Wiicomin reversed, as I Court of Er rori. the decision of the District Court, it bid the grace to wait until that Court bad finally decided. It U not unusual in legal proceedings to plead former recovery or a former icquittil. Can any Court interpose in such cues, and tike the case from the Court in which the jurisdiction i ves ted? If the Commissioner did wrong, does that authorize the State Judge to interpose by writ of habeas corpus, and withdraw the case from the federal ju tisdicliouT It it a general principle of law, to which I know of no exception, that the lawi of every government shall be con itrued by itself, ind such construction ii acted upon by the judiciary of ill oth er countries. By the Federal Constitution, "the ju dicial power of the United States is de clared to be vested in one Supreme Court I nd in luch inferior Courts, as the Con gress miy from time to time origin ami establish." Under this provision the judiciary ol the Union 'ires a construc tion of the laws, which is obligator? on the State tribunals. The Constitution again declares that the Constitution and laws of the United Stales, which shall be made in pursuance thereof, and ill treaties nude, or which shall he made under authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the Judges in every State shall he bound thereby, anything in the consti tution or laws of my State to the con tiary notwithstanding. The construction of the statutes of the different States, except where the Su preme Court of the Union exercises an ppellate power, has uniformly been followed by the United States. This hit been csriied so far, by the Supreme Court, is to reverse its own decisions to conform to a change in the derisions in the State Court, and this wos on the ground of policy, to avoid two rules of property in the same State. It has been considered is no degradation by the Su preme Court to follow the established construction of the local laws by the Courts of the States. There is no in stance, it is believed, where a Federal Court has disregarded the decisions of a S'.ale Court, where it possessed no ap pellate power. Some years ago an individual was in dicted for a capital offense in the Cir cuit Court of the United States, in w hich that most learned and able man, Judge Blory, presided. The individual was in prison, under State process, for debt or some petty offense. The District Attor ney of the United States moved the Court to issu? a habeas corpus to bring the defendant before the Court; but that learned Judge held that he had no pow er to issue the writ for that purpose. Some year or two ago a cafe similar in principle occured in the Circuit Court of the United States for Ohio, and that Court held it had no power to take the defendant from the State jurisdiction In such cases, in this State, an arrange ment has been made with the State au thority to order the accused to be de livered to the Marshal, with x pledge. that he should te returned to the State juiisdiction. And where a concurrent jurisdiction exists in the Federal and State Courts, .the Federal Courts have uniformly held the suit in these Courts to be abated where the same cause of action had been sued in the State Court. I caunot withhold the expression of m suruise at the earnest, if not indig nant, manner in which the counsel spoke of the conduct of the Commissioner in iisuing his w arrant after the decision of the Probate Court on the hvbeas corvus: and in intimation was throw n out that, if the peace of the country is to be pre served, more respect must be shown by the federal authority to the decisions of the State Court, Thete is not the least foundation for thil feeling and expression. Itariser from in entire misconseption of the cise under consideration. The Commis sioner of the United States issued his warrant to arrest the supposed fugitive from labor, on the application of the master. There is no evidence that he hid any knowledge of the previous de cision of the Probate Judge. No one, I suppose, will allege that he had the le gal evidence of the fact; but suppose the record had been presented to him, did he show any want of respect to the State Court by issuing the warrant and inquinog into the complaint? This by BO means prejudiced the right of the fu gitive, as the previous decision could be set up in bar of the procedure, if such decision were final. But I have an authority on this point. Some ten years ago a habeas corpus was issued by the Circuit Court of the Uni ted States, for the Eastern District ol New York, to bring before it an indivi dual who had been arrested as a fugitive from justice under our late treaty with England. The Circuit Court was held by Jndge Betts, the District Judge, who, on full examination, remanded the prisoner to be given up under the treaty. Judge Nelson, out of Court, issued an other habeas corpus, and the prisoner being brought before him. he adjourned the case to the Supreme Conrt. When toe matter was in disscussion before the Court, I urged that the second habeas corpus wis irregular. The rase was dismissed for wint of jurisdiction, but a majority of the Judges intimate the opioioa that the first decision br the Circuit Court was no bar to the second writ. I differ with my brethern on the question, but s the Court did out take Jurisdiction no decision wn given in the case. The writ of habr.as corpus being returned to Judge Nelson, he discharged the prisoner, Every one who examines the authori ties in this country and in England wilt fin J that there have been diversity ol judgments on the point whether the de cision on a habeas corpus ii filial; and after the case above cited, the sympath ies of the coancel for the indignity done to the Judge of Probate may well be spared, a lino ill apprehensions for the public peace being disturbed, for any want of respect by the federal authori' liei to the State Courts. Slate rights are invoked by the coun sel. If these rights .are construed to mean I subversion of the federal author iiies, they may be somewhat in dinger That the Commissioner had jurisdic tion in the case is clear. While duly engaged in the investigation of the mat ter, the Honorable Judge of the Com mon Pleas whose motives I by no means question by a habeas corpus, took from the custody of the Marihal the body of the fugitive, which left the Commissioner without a case. It wrest ed from him, without any authority of Uw, the subject of his jurisdiction. This, so far as I know, is without pre cedent. Hail any Commissioner or Fed eral Judge interposed, and by the same means had dtsiegarded and disturbed llje jurisdiction of a State Court, 1 should have fell not less concern than the ele quent counsel. A sense of duty com pets me to say that the proceedings-of th Honorable Judge Were not only w ithout the author ity of law, but against law, and that the proceedings are void, and I am bound to treat them as a nullity. The Marshal is. discharged from custody. The Commissioner hating discharged the fugitive, this case is interesting on ly as it regards the Federal and State jurisdictions. Last Words of Nicholas about the United States, England & France. The New Orluaus Bee publishes the following passages from I letter addres ed to an eminent foreigner, now in th city, bv a Russian friend, residing in St, Petersburg The Bee says, 'it may be regarued as entirely authentic' ST. PETERSBURG, Feb. 1855. Before my letter reaches you, you will probably have received intelligence ol a loss that will probably spread a gloomy veil over all Russia: for the death of such a man i a blow that not only strikes his own country, but resounds from the shores of the whole world In my last letter I did not dare openly to declare what we were expecting from day to day, for we were' unwilling to accustom our hearts to an idea, which our minds were incapable of conceaving. The laot days of the Czar ire a w hole century in the history of Russia, and will he never forgotten by ihofe who wit nessdthem Do not imagine that he was exasperated with his foes. Quite the contrary! Impartially, like a pro phet, he gazed on the present situation of the different European powers, and predicted te future with the accuracy of one who'looks beyond the present. 'England, ' said he, 'has reached her culminating point either for life or death There is no middle point for her to pur sue. One 'hiag alone may save her, and that is a free confession, not only by government, but by the whole aristoc rucy, made to the people, that they have been absurd, from first .o last, that the Crown is unable any longer to maintain its power, and that the. people must rise and unite together like one man, to save the honor and preserve the independence ol the countr,. A candid acknowledge ment of the truth may even now save England, if her corrupt aristocracy can be brought to the stool of confession. France, on the contrary, can ' maintain hersell only by falsehood and deception. The Emperor may proclaim to his sub jects that he governs and influences the affairs of all Europe, that not a shot can be fired without his permiusion.and that France is the .'irst power in Europe; but a single shock, one speech of a dem agogue may overthrow him and darken the star of Napolean forever. I have offered my hand, the band of reconcili ation, aud he refused it. He wishes to avenge Moscow upon me, and S', Hele na upon tngiaiid. aiiorl sighted man, who seeks to avenge the sin of the fa I lie 's upon ihe children. As for Ger many, Austria and Prussia, they would uot now exist, if 1 had not saved them when they crouched at my feet six veers ago; they think to strengthen themselves in the mighty struggle between the oth er nations of Europe. But they have been and never will be more than sec ondary powers, satraps holding author ity by the clemency of in) House, or b permission of the Wes'.eru Powers.; Vet one consolation is left to me in the midst of ill this ingratitude and villainy, and lhat is the silent sympathy of that high-hearted people on the other side ol the Atlantic, the only heart in which hear an echo of my struggle against the united Europe. Never have 1 forgotten the smallest kinnuess shown to me bv the least of my subjeects; let my child ren never forget what we owe to Amer ica; aud if ever an hour of danger dark ehs the Union, let her find a faitblul atly in my tainily These words maybe of interest to you my friend, becauie you are now living amongst the Americans; and I mention (hem knowing that your sympathies have bound you to a foreign land nearly half a century. One learns to recoguize hie true friends m the hour of danger and you may rely upon it, that as long as a Czar sits oil Russia s throne, the American States will uever ueed Iriend. The above (says the Bee) is a faithful and almost literal translation from the latter which is written in German, by one of the nobles of Courland, residing in St. Petersburg.

Let Commodore McCaulky at the next Spanish Man-ot-War that fires into our steamers and it will soon settle the matter; if not, let Cuba be annexed!

She did not report i he lact, however. -such outrages, without atonement, having become too common to be deemed, in the estimation of her officers, worthy of no lice. There will be trouble with Spain soon unless, with the usual puoillanity of in soleul imbecility, she tumbles on her knees at the lirst exhibition of spirit on the part ol the Unued Stales.

A Man, Wife, and Five Children. From the Wabash (Ind.) Express of April 11. Yesterday'evening, a re nort reached towu that a whole family was discovered buried under the floor of the cabin which had been occupied oy Ihe Hubbards.who are now in jail, charg ed with the murder of Boyles. The awful news spread rapidly over town; and in half an hour, or less, the Coro ner, with a jury and thirty or forty citi zens, had stalled for the place. We immediately sel about finding the truth of ihe story, and ere indebted to Mr. James Wilson for what follows: Yesterday (Tuesdiy) morning. Mr. Wilson and M. I. Thomas, constable, provided with a warrant, started down the canal to arrest Ihe wife of Hubbard, whom late developments rendered il highly probable that the was an accom plice in the murder of Boyles. Thev proceeded to Mr. Uardiner s worss. nve miles west of town, where they fouud the woman and arrested her. Mr. Love land suggested to Mr. Wilson that sus picious were entertained that the Hub bards had murdered a whole family last fall. As soon as Mr. Wilson heard '.his, he, in company with Mr. Loeland, went to the house of Mr. Fisher, where they ascertained thatsome lime in September last this Hubbard family went to board with a family by the name of French, who then lived in the cabin since occu pied by the Hubbardi. This French familv consisted of seven persotjs, the father, mother, and five childieu. They were a very poor family, and had been living in the neighborhood tix or seven years, and were well known by ihe neighbors. During last summer the old man French had raised a small patch ol corn and some garden stuff, the whole of which, together wiih the furniture, was not worth oer 650. Some lime in Oc lober. Mr. Lewis, a near neighbor, went to the Cabin of French to purchase his com. lie was mei at tne leutom of the cabin by the Hubbard, and was told that the night belore Mr, French s brother had coma along wiih a wagou, and had taken Mr, French's whole lam- ily away with him, aud had started lor Illinois, and that they had purchased all their things, including the corn, garden id furniture. A day or two alter warn, Mr. Stearnes Fisher weal over to inquire if ihe Frenches needed any aisistance, and was met in the same way by the' Hubbard's and was told the same st0,7- No suspicions were entertained al tlte time lhat foul pley had been used, and nothing accrued until after the bo ly of Boyles bad been fouud and the Hubbards were arrested, ll then begin to be thought these monsters had murdered the w hole family.. On hearing these state ments, Mr, Wilson deieiminrd in go and search the premises. He then went down 10 Gardiner's works and procured shovel and a pick, and tried to gel some one lu go with him. No one, ho a'- ever, believed the story, and so nu one volunteered lo uo. While thry were talking, Mr Thompson came up, and he aud Mr. Wilson proceeded lo Hubbard's a lid fouud the noor locked. They drew the staple with ihe pick, and entered the house. They found the floor raised, and some dirt removed. Mr. Miles Mordii, constable had been there a short time previous, searching, aud had discovered piece of skull-bone and had gone away, iiiey then proceeded lo dig away the dirt, aud soon discovered the body of au infant, very much decayed. Thty iiumediaiely left and came u p to town and got ihe Coroner, who summoned a J ury, consisting of Staarnea' Fisher, J. Lewis, D. Books, F. Lovelaml, M. W. Stoberaud Dr J. W.Jellisou, who pro ceeded lo the place, at once, which they reached about seven o clock lust evening lu the presence ol a large company they proceeded to examine the place where the iulatlt had been discovered, and, horrible lo relate, found seven bod ies, consisting of this entire French fum My'. 1 tie ir skulls were all broken in, aud the legs ol the old man French and his wile were broken, so that they could be doubled up and forced into the hole, which was three or four f-:el deep. Thev were laid in a heap the father and mother ut ihe bottom, and the children on ton. 1 lie babe was about li I tee it months old, and the oldest child about fifteen years old. There were three girls aud two buys. The children were much decayed, but the parents were still sound, and were easily recognized by those who had kuown them. There is not the least doubt but that the Hubbards are guilty of this whole sale and damning murder. Il ia almost loo horrible lor beliel, but lacts are as above staled, aud the conclusion is irre sistible, The Hubbards are all in jail Mrs. Hubbard will be examined to-day. There seems to have been no oilier mo live than the obtaining what few world ly goods this poor lainily possessed, which were not worth oet fifty dollars The following queries have beeu pro pounded to to us : Can a man be a Mason, and a K.
