vaaion or of civil'or foreign war, within * district or localise* *her*#rdiuary law Ho-lengor adq*telv scewes public Nufcity ami privat* rigMi.'* It will me observed that Of the three kinds of military Jorisdictioo which am be exofetaod or created under our Con stitutloß. there is bat one that can pre vail in time of peace, and that U the code of laws enacted by Congress for the government of the national forces. Thai body of military law has nu appll v ition to (bo citizen, nor even to the vitiscu soldier enrolled in the militia in t unc of peace. But this bill is not a part of that sort of military law, for that applies only to the soldier and not to the citiacu, whilst, contrariwise, the military law provided by this bill applies only to the citizen and not to the sol dier. I wed not say to the representatives of the American people that their Con stitution forbids the exercise of judicial power in any way but one—that is, by the ordained and established courts. — It is equally well known that in all criminal oases a trial by jury is made ind spoosable by the express words of that instrument. 1 will uot enlarge on the inestimable value of tbs right thus Mecured to every freeman, or speak of the danger to pnblio liberty in ail parts of the country which must ensue from a deni il of it anywhere or upon any pretense. A vory recent decision of the Supremo Court has traced the his tory, vindicated the dignity, ami made known the value oi tius great privilege no closely that nothing more is needed I’d .what extent a violation of it might )*c excused in time of war or public dan ger uij admit of discussion, but we are providing now for a time of profound ] race, when there is not au armed sol dier within our bothers except lh. so who arc in the service of the Govern ment. It is in such a condition of things that an act of Congress is pro posed which, if carried out, would deny u trial by the lawful courts and juries to nine millions of American citizen*, and to their posterity for an indoii uitc period. It seems to he scarcely possible that any one should seriously believe thia'eohsistcot with u Constitu tion which declares, in simple, plain, and unambiguous language, that all persons .‘ ball have that right. uoJ that no person ahull ever in any ease be de prived of it. The Constitution also for bids the arrest of the citizen without judicial warrant, founded on probable cause. This bill authorises au arrest without warrant, at the pleasure of a military commander The Constitution declares that -‘no person shall bo hold to answer far a capital or otherwise in famous crime unless on presentment by a grand jury.’' This bill holds every |mr son not a soldier answerable for all crimes and all charges without any present incut. The Constitution declares that no person shall be deprived of life, ib jrty, or property without due process 4>Claw.” This bill seta aside all proves* of [%yr. and makes the citizen anavrera bio in Ois person and property to the will of otw man. and as to his life to the will of two. F-oally, the Constitution declares that -the privilege of the writ It ibeas corpus •Nall wot ho suspended u dess when, in OSX ol rebellion or in vasion, the public safely may require it whereas this bill declares martial law (which of ftsulf suspeu'ld ibht great writ) in time of peace, ah*l authorizes the military to make the arrest, and gives to the prisoner only one privilege, and that is, a trial wialumt umeeMoa ry delay.” He has uo hope of tjleanc from custody, except the hope, such as it is of release by acquittal before a military coiumbsioii. The Cuitod Staten arc hound to guar- 1 anVec to each State a republican form of government. Can it be proton dud that tb s obligation U not palpably broken if we carry out a measure like this, which wipes away every vestige of republican government in ten States, uud puts the life property, liberty, and honor of all the people ia each of them under (he domination of a single person clothed with unlimited authority? The Parliament in Kuglaud. exerci sing the omnipotent power which il chimed, was accustomed to piss bills of attainder; that ii to ear, it would eon viet men of treason wnd other crimes by iejuhlws coactmout. -The person ac cused had a hearing, sometJnrs pa ti *dt and fair one ; but generally pu.* f y prejudice prevailed instead of justice. ; It often became necessary for Parlia- j muni to acknowledge its error and re-j vcr.o its own action. The fathers of! ear country determined that no such thing should occur here. They with- | held the power from Congress, and thus forbade it* exercise by that body ; and they provided ia the Constitution that no £tatc should pass any bill of attain der. It is therefore impossible for any person in thui country to be constitu tionally convicted or pnuishwd for any crime by legislative proceeding of any sort. Nevertheless, here is a bill of at tainder against nine millions of people at It ia baaed upon an accusa tion so vagfcc oa to be scarcely intelligi ble, and found to be true upon no cred ible evidence. Not one of the nine millions was heard in his ovru defence. The representatives of the doomed par ties were excluded from all participa tion in the trial. The conviction is to be followed by tfcc most ignominious punishment ever inflicted on large mas men. It disfranchises them by hundreds of thousands and degrades them all—even those who arc ailniiltcd to bo guiUton*—from the rank of free men to ike aonditbm of slaves. The purpose and object of the bill, the general intent which prevadea it from beginning to end, i* to change the entire structure and character ot the State governments, and to compel tljem by force to the adoption of organic laws and regulation* which they are unwil ling to accept jf left to thcuisnlvm.— The negroes have m*t asked for flu privilege of voting j the vast majority *f them have no idea what it mean*.—- This bill uot only thrust* it into their ha mis, hut compels them, si well as the whites, to use it in a particular way.— If they do not form a constitution with prescribed articles in il, and afterward elect a legislature which will act upon certain measures in a prescribed way. neither blacks nor whites can be relieved •" ro the slavery which the bill imposes Uitm pam inv hen* to i consider the policy or impolicy of AJH r canivtnr the .Houiheru uarf of our ter • d ritcry. I would siuqply ask ibf attention of Congrats tothutmanifest,well-known, s and universally acknowledged rule of ) cuustimliunal Uv Which declares that | the Federal Government has no juris - { diction, authority, or power to regulate b j such subjects for any State. To force i- ' the right of suffrage out of the hands i, of the white people and into the hands - of the negroes is an arbitrary violation c of this principle. j This bill imposes martial law at once, & and it* operations will begin so soon as r the General nud his troop* can be put I ia placo. The dread alternative lc -c tween its harsh rule und cunipliaQtt* h with the terms of this measure in not .suspended, nor arc the people afforded any time for free deliberation. The a bill says to them, take martial law first, . thm deliberate. And when they have 1 done all that this measure require* them f to do, other coudittuiis and coulingeu - cies, over which they have uo control, I yet remain to be fulfilled before they u can be relieved from martial law. An f other Congress must first approve the 3 constitutions made iu conformity with s the will of this Congress, and must do f ebre tlirwc Slates entitled to raprcs**n tation in both Houses. The whole ,j question thus remains open and unaei v tied, and must again occupy the alton f lion of Cowgress, uud in lltu mcsutinie . the agitation which now prevails will c continue to disturb all portions ai’ the 0 people. The bill also denies the legality of II the governments of tern of Iho Stales ■ which participated in the raldticitioa of 8 : the amendment to the Federal Cottati -1 | tutiou abolishing slavery forever within ~ ; the jurisdiction of the United Stales, j and practically excludes them from the Union, if this assumption of the bill fi be correct, their concurrence cannot be i. | couriered as having been legally given. y and the important fact is made to appear s 1 that the consent of three-fourths of the i ? i States—the requisite number— -bn* not been constitutionally obtained to the f ; ratiii ration of that amctulnuut. thus y j leaving the question of slavery where it . stood before the amend me ut ofHcial , I iy declared to have become a pari of the I Constitution. t That the measure proposed by this - bill does violate the Constitution in the . particulars mentioned, and iumauy oth t or ways which I forbear to enumerate, > is too clear to admit of the least doubt t It only remains to consider whether the i injunctions of that instrument ought to i [>c obeyed or not. 1 think tliey ought I I to be obeyed, for reasons which I will . i proceed to give as briefly us possible. i In the first place, it is the only sys tem of free government which we can hope to have as a nation. When it ceases to be the rule of our eouduel. we t may perhaps take our choice between , complete anarchy, a consolidated des t pot ism, and a total dissolution of the • ; Union; but national liberty, regulated . by law. will have paaaod beyond oar • roach. ) j It is the best frame of government i the world ever saw. N’o other is nr can t ; be so well adapted to the genius, habits. I i or wants of the American people. Coni . bluing the strength of a great empire with uus|icakablc blessings of local self government—having a central power to , defend the general interests, and reoog i nixing the authority of the State.-, as the I , guardians of industrial rights, it is * the , sheet-anchor of our safety abroad und - our peace ut home.” It was ordained ; ‘to form a more perfect union* establish i justice, insure domestic tranquility, * promote the general welfare, provide i for the common defence, and secure the . , blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity/' Those great end- have boon attained heretofore, anti will b • again, by faithful obedience to it. but they are i ccrta.u to be lost if we treat with disre- i i * gard Its sacred obligations. Jt was to punish the gross crime of 1 defying the Constitution, and to vindi- : ■ ' eato its supreme authority, that we car 1 ried on a bloody war of four years’ du i ration. filial! we now acknowledge that we sacrificed a million of lives and ex pended billions of treasure to enforce a , ' Constitution which is not worthy of ; respect and preservation ' Those who advocated the right of; j secession alleged iu their own juaiihca- ’ . • tion that we had no regard for law, and | ’ : that their rights of property, life, and j f liberty would not be safe under the ! I Constitution as ad ;ii Wintered by us. If , we now verify their assertion, wo prove f • . that they vfniein truth and iu fact light- ' i! ing for tii;ir .'bcrty, and instead of j branding tkoir leader* witfi the dishou i , oriag name of traiw l * against a right- I ooos and legal Governu'nuf, we elevate . them in history to the rank o .•df j r I tie i rig patriots, eoniecrate tl.euj *o f hc admiration of the w*orld, and place (fK'“ ! by the side of Washington, Hampden, 1 • and .Sydney- Xu. let us leave them o , the infamy they deserve, punish thorn j • as they should bo punished, according | i to law. and take upon ourselves no share f of the odium which (hey should hear < alone. It is a part of our public history which can never be forgotten that both Houses . of Congrene, iu July, 1861. declared in - the form of a solemn resolution that the war was and should be carried on fur no purpose of subjugation, hut solely to J i enforce the Uoiistitutiou and laws, and j that when this vu* yielded by the pur- ; r ties in rebellion, the contest should ! coote, with the coustituiiooal rights of i I the State* und of individuals uiiinipuir I i cd.

When the Coufed crate armies under Ocus. Lee aod John* atoo surrendered they never dreamed that an attempt would to made to de prive the White people of the South of the right of self-government as it had always existed. Consequently, they are utterly confounded by the passage of the late law, and the determination therein expressed to elovatc the whole negro race of the South at once to a political equality with the whiles. Such a proposition in times gone by would have been mot at once by an indignant rejection. Undcr existing circumstances this may not bo ao now, yet we oannot doubt that it will provoke u secret hos tility which will some day tell to the detriment of the country. In tho suf fering condition of the pc pie such a policy as that of the President would bind the South to the Union by cords i of affection stronger than hooks of steel; but Congress, in order to elevate the 1 negro, and thus to rule the South, has t.ikcu advantage of the supreme j necessity of her people t< wound their j feelings in the most tender point, and : i in a manner not likely to bo soon for- j ! gotten. j The first impulse doubtless would tc j , to do nothing at all; but to submit to 1 ' any military ruler the President may ■ appoint, aud trust to (ho revulsion of j 1 feeling in (he North against this law to secure its overthrow.
