Decision of the Supreme Coart of the fulled States. The opinion of the Supreme Court, in the ease P. Milligan, delivered by Mr. Justice Davis, and the separate opinion of Chief Justice Chase and Justices Wayne, Swayne, and Miller fill an entire page of the New York dailies. The following is the essence of the decision delivered by Judge Davis: ° It ie claimed that martial law cover* with Its broad mantle the proceedings of this military com mission. Ibe proposition la this: That In a time of war the commarder of an armed force, if la hU opinion the exigencies of the country demand it, which be la to judge-, has the power, with in the lines of his military district, to suspend all civil right?, and their remedies were subie:t, citi zens as well as soldiers, to the rale oi his tclll. rod tlie exercise of bis lawful authority cannot he restrained, except by his superior of ficer or the President of ihe Uni ted htates. If this principle is sound to the extent claimed, then when war exists, lorcign or domestic, and the country Is subdi vided into Military Ut-oartmenis, for mere con venience, the commander oi one of them, can. if he chooses, with the approval of the Executive, substitute military force for aud to the ixdusiun efile laws, and punish all persons as he thinks proper, without fixed or curtain rates. The state ment of this proposition shows its importance: for if true republican government is a failure and . there is au end of liberty regulated bv law, mar tial law, established on such a oasts, destroys every guarantee of the Constitution and etlectualiy renders the military independent of and snpeilor to the civil power— the attempt to do which by the King of Great Britain was deemed by our fathers such an offence that they assigned it to the wot Id as one of the causes which Imjwlled them to declare their Independence. Civil lib erty and this kind of martial law cannot eudme together; the antagonism is irreconcilable, and In me conflict otic or the other must perish. This nation, as experience has proved, cannot always remain at peace, and has no right to expect that it will always have wise and humane rulers, sincerely attached to the prin ciples ol the Constitution. Wicked men, ambitious of power, with hatred of liberty and contempt of law, may fill the places occupied by Washington and Lincoln, aud If this right is conceded, and the calamities of war again befall ns, the dangers) to human life and Imerty am frichtlnl to contemplate. If our fathers had tailed to provide for jutt such a contingency, they would have been false to the trust reposed in ih. m. They knew, the history of ihe world toM them, the nation Ucy were foundin'-, be its «*Ti.-tence short or long, wonlcl be involved m war, ; - ow often or how long continued, human fore tight could net ell, a- d aat unlimited power wherever lodged at such a time, was specially Lezardour to freemen. For this and oihcrwoightv reason* they secured tuc inheritance they‘hail lotigbt to maintain, by Incorporating in a written Constitution the safeguards which time had proved were essential to ns preservation. Not one of the.-e salegunids can the President, or Congress, or tbc Jm tcliirv disturb, except the one concern ing the writ ot ha'u'Qg corpus. li is essential to the safety of every Govern ment that, m a great crisis like the one we have .ust lasstd through, there should be a power somewhere of suspending the writ of habeas cor~ j'us. In every wartheie are men of previously good cus’acicr nicked enough to counsel iheir fellow-citizen* to resist tbc meas ures deemed neccs:ary by a good Govern ment to sustain , its just authority and overthrow it* enemies; ana their Influence may lead to dangerous combination*. In Ihe emer gency of the times-au immediate public investiga tion according to law may not be possible, and yet the peril io the country may be 100 imminent to refer such persons to go at largo. Unques tionably, there 1* then an exigency which de mands that the Government, if it should see flt, lu the exercise cf a proper discretion, to make ar aels, should not he required to produce the per sons attested In answer io a writ of habeas cor pus. Ihe Constitution goes no further. H does uot eny after a writ of habeas corpus Is denied a citizen that he shall be tiled otherwise than oy the course oi common law. If it Had lut nded •bis result it wia easy, by the use of direct words, to have accomplished it. The Illustrious men who framed tn :t instrument were guardin'- ihe foundatioca of civil liberty against the abuses v‘- unlimited power. They were'full of wisdom, ana the le.-tons pl'hlslory informed them Uiat a rial by an established court, assisted by an Im punial jury, waa the only sure way of protecting the citizen against oppression and wrong. Know it-g this, they limited the suspension to one great r:ghl and left the rest But it is insisted that the safety of the country in time of war demands that ifus broad claim*foe. martini law shall be sustained. If thU were true, it could he well said thai a country preserved at ihe tucriCce of all the cardinal principles of liberty is not wont the tost of preservation. Happily ii it noise. It will t,c home in mind that this is i.ot tne question of the power to proclaim mar tial law when u«r exists in a community, and the xiiris and civil authorities are overthrown: nor it a question what pule a military commander -I the head of hi? erray can impose on States In rebellion to cripple iLcir resources and quell the insurrection. ihe jurisdiction claimed is mucb more extensive. Ifce ncccsrirics of the rebellion i.qniitd that tbe lovat States should l»c placed witiiin tbc limiis of cel lain military districts, ami oiniimiiideis appointed in them, and It i? urged that ibis, in- a military sense, oonstlinted them tbe theatre of military opera •ions: ana as in this case Indiana bad been and was again Ibreatcued mill invasion bv the enemy, tbe occasion was furnished to establish martial law. The conclusion does not follow from the premises that if armies were col.ected in Indiana they were to be employed in another locality “b**:e the laws were obstructed and tbe National autboiity disputed. On her soil there* was no hos tile foot. If once invaded, that occasion was a* an end, ana with it all pretext for martial law. Martial law cannot arise from a pretended Inva sion. The necessity must be actual and present; the invasion real, cuch as cdcctnaliy close* the courts and deposes the civil administration* It i? difficult to see how Ihe safety of the country required martial law In Indiana. If any of her citizens were plotting treason tbc power of arrest conid secure them uuul the Government was prepared for ih*-ir trial, when the court* were open and ready to try them. It was at easy to protect wimesre? b- fore a civil as a military tribunal, and as there could bo no wish to con vict except on sufficient legal evidence, snrclv an organized and established court was better aide to judge of this than a military tribunal composed of gentlemen not trained to tbc profession of law. H iollows4rom what has been said on this sub ject that there are occasions when martial rule can nc properly applieo. Ifinlorelcn Invasion or mil war the courts are actually closed, and It is .!ta po-siblc to administer criminal justice according to law. then on the theatre of aclon of military open.(Jon? where war retlly prevails there is a ncccb-Ity to tnnueb a substitute lor the civil aninotity thus overthrown to preserve tbe saivty of the army and society: and as no power is left bat tho military, it is : Rowed to govern by martial rule null] lilt* laws can bavt- ihtlr tree course. As necessity denies the inle, so it limits its duration ; for if Hi?** Government is continued after the courts are reinstated, it is agrees nsn pinion of jiower. MaruaJ rnle ran never « xln whore the courts are o on and in the proper and obstructed exercises c tb ir jniisdictlnn. It te also confined to the lo cality ol actual hostilities. Because during the late rebellion u could not have been enforced in Virginia, where tbo national authority was over turned and ihe courts driven out, it docs not fol low that It should ob’ato in Indiana, where that authority wa? never disputed and justice was ai wa j e administered. And so in the case of foreign Invasion, martial rule may become a necessity in one Slate when in another it would t>e “mere lawless violence.” ♦ ‘ » • *.• • • It Improper to say, although 3!tl!lgan’s trial and fcotivicuon by a .Military Commiyiion was Illegal, yet if guilty of the crime? imputed to him, and hi? emit had been ascertained by an established Comx r.nd impartial Jury, be deserved severe punishment. Open resManco to the measure? deemed necessary to ?cbdue n great rebellion, i>y Those xvho enjoy the protection of the Govern ment, and have not the excuse even of prejudice of section to plead in their lavor. la wicsea; bat that resistance become? an enormous crime when it assumes the fotm ol a secret political organiza tion, armed to oppose the laws, and which seeks by stealthy mean? to introduce (he ene mies of the country into peaceful communities, thereto light the torch of cml war, and thus overthrow the power of the United Slates. Con spiracies like these at such a Juncture are ex tremely p. tiloue, and those concerned In tuem arc donirerous enemies to their country, and should receive-the heavloat penalties of the law, as an example to deter others from similar crim italiondct-t. It Is said tbc severities of tire laws caused them; but t engross was obliged to enact severe law? to meet tbo crisis—and. as our highest civil duty is to serve our country when in dtnger, tbe late war ha? proved that rigorous law?, when accessary, will be cheerfully obeyed by a patriotic ptcple struggling to preserve the rich blessings of a free gov ernment. Tbc two remaining ques tion? is (bi? case must be answered In the nffiimnuve. Tbe suspension of the privilege of tbe writ of Aafr-c? coiyit doe? not enswendthe writ ItselC The wnt issnes as a matter of course, and on the return made to it Ihe Court decide? whether tbe party applying is decree the right of proceeding any lortncr with it. If the military •rial of Millicran was contrary to law, then he was entitled, cn tbe tacts stated in hi? petition, to be discharged from custody by tbe term? of theact of Congress ot March 3,ISS. Tbc provisions of t: l? law, having Vi-n considered in a previous part of this opinion, we wi.l nut restate tbc views there presented/ Milligan avers that be was a citizen cf Indiana, not in the ..milita ry or naval service. and was de tained in close confinement by order of the Presi ded from the £th day of October. ISC4, until tho second day of January, l£C5, when the Circuit c oart for the district of Indiana, witn a Grand’ Jury convened in session at Indianapolis, and aitcrward on the 27th of the same mouth adjourned wlthc-nt finding any indictment or presentment agamti him. If these averments are true—and u cir truth Is conceded for tho pnrpo cs of this case—lhe conn was required to liberate him on taking certain oaths prescribed by tbc law, and entering into recognizance for his good behavior. But it I? insisted that Milligan vas a prisoner of war, and therefore ex cluded from tbe privilege of tbe striate. It I? not ea?v to see how be can be treated as a prisoner of war when be lived in Indiana for tbc past twenty years, was arrested there, and nad not been dur itiglho late troubles a residert of any of the States in rebellion.
