This individual, it will bo recollected, was arrested at this place about a year since, charged with the murderof Taschay :it Kamouraska, L. C, and on application of tho Colonial authorities, Gov. Jcnison issued an order for his surrender. The execution of this order was arrested, how ever, by writ of habeas corpus, and the question came up before tho Supreme Court in July last. Messrs. Maeck and Van Ness appeared for Holmes and ar gued the case at great length against the authority of the Governor to surrender. Mr. Adams, on the other hand, maintained the power, and insisted upon the duty of the Executive to surrender felons. Tho court sustained tho Governor. The case was then carried up to tho U. S. Court, by writ of error, and again argued by Gov Van Ness in behalf of Holmes. Tho question, however, seems not to have been decided there upon its merits, but dismis sed for want of jurisdiction. This leaves tho matter where it started, in the hands of the Governor. Since tho above was in type, wo have been furnishod with the following extract of a letter from Washington, dated March 5th, which wo publish for the sake of the mformationtioii it contains. Wo do not agree to all its conclusions, nor approve its temper. Gov. Jennison will not be driven from a just discargo of his duty. "The Judges of the Supremo Court of the UnilPil Slates, vesterdav delivcied their opinions in the case of Dr Holmes, brought up liy writ of error from the Supreme Court of Vermont. I'hero being an equal division niiinng lliein, the judgment helow is ronsrqiienlly affiimeil ; but it will be imeresiing in Know Hie grounds ol the several opinions expressed upon this occasion. Chief Justice Taney delivered an opinion in winch Judges Story, McLean and Wayne roncur. red. This opinion is erv full, nnd displays extra. ordinary ability, sustaining the jurisdiction of the court I y writ ofeiror, upon tho judgment of a stale court in the rate nf a lialieas corpus, and sustaining also tlm exclusne power of llie general government over the subject nf surrendering iugiiivr from jus tice lo foreign governments. Theso four judges, iherefire, were in favor of reversing the judgment of ilie stale court. Judge Catron concurred in the first place in tho opinion prepared by tlm Chief Justice, nnd thus n majority had agreed to icverse the judgment below; but this Judge, in 11 manner somewhat unnccounta. ble, afier two nrlhiee weeks of ugteemrnt, sudden. ly changed sides, aud that upon 11 very singular, not to say frivolous, ground. He delivered a separate opinion in which he admits that he "concurred for a time" with the Chief Justice and his three oilier ns.oeiates : and ho founds his change of opinion there was a demand nn die part of Cnnad 1, it will lit mice l) seen that the judgment of lb1' sunn roiirt has lieen condemned, and would have Demi Inrinally icveised, by 11 majority ol this riuirt, but for tho accidental omission in llie rrcoidiifii notorious fact, nml which the four Judges first named did not consider material in make nut llic unconstitutional agreement. It ought In be mlded, however, that those Judges nlo decided the catn upon other nnd broader grouiuN than llic prohibition alluded in in the nonsiiiutioii nf a Stale entering into an agi ce ment with n foreign power, I'liey considered that ground stifhYienl. and said that an ngreeinent In tnr- render Holmes nnil nccesarilv bo supposed, even without any evidence of n demand on the part of CfiiunJa. liul they nhcrwiiriN enlered upon llie broad around that llitsnibipct belonged to the fir elgn intercourse of the country, and wns cxclusivo In the general government. Ju'lgo Thompson ulco predicated his dissent upon the want of evidence In the record of liny demand by ihn Canadian niilhoiilies. Ho said it might lane been n "self moved act" on the part rrl Gov. Jenison to order Holmes to bo taken tn Canada Hp stated further that there was no evidence of the State having patted any mo upon the subject, or of having given Hny authotily lo ihn Governor ; that tho act must be viewed as the unautiort'scrf and arbitrary nit nl tlm Governor, nnd ns fitich no authority had been exercised under the Slate which was repugnant to the Cunstilutinn of ihc United States, and that, therefore, there wns no question in the case of which this Court could take jurisdiction under the 25th Section of the Judicial Act of 1789. He also argued largely to prove that thoro existed no power or obligation to nirrender fugitives from other countries except by treaty ; that the subject rested wholly on comity, ant) wan a question between one nation and another, " Judge Barbour pursued a course of reasoning eomewhat similar to that of Jtttlgo Thompson. All the Judges decla red they had no power to decide whether the Governor's order was or wn not oon irary to tho Constitution and Irws of Ver mont, but so far as fair and plain inferen ces con bo drawn from their expressions, they all consider the act lo be 0 most un warrantable and outrnrrrjous violation of law. and of the personal liberty of the citizen. " Prom the above it will bo seen that Governor Jenison, and our three Judges by whine t.dvice he acted, and who after. wards sustained Itttn. are placed in n deli cate and responsible position. If they suffer Holmes to be carried out of the coun. try, they may have cause to rezret it to the latest moment of their lives. Is it not their duty to delay the matter until they shall have examined the opinions of uMcn 1 nave been speaking ? " Melbourne.
