A resolution of Congroee ?t September S8d, 178#. declared that It ba recommend ed to the Legislature* of th* aeveral H tales to pa** laws making It expreaely the duty of tha keeper* of ?heir jail* to receive, and safe keep therein nil priaoner* committed under the authority of the United ?tote*, until they *h.U be di.nharged by due couree of the law. thereof, und-r the like penaltle* a* I. the c?.. ? pisoner* committed under tha authority of such States reepeatlvely.? the United State, to pay for th. use end kerplngol snch jails nt the rateefflfty r,,t, rer Tonth for each prieoner that shall, under their authority be committed thereto during the time auoh prisoners ahtll be therein confined to ,up pott such of said pi isomers as shall be aoamittad for cfiences A further resolution ot Oongvess, of the third of March 17#1. provides that wberaaa Oon gre * did, by a resolution of tha twenty tklri day of September 178#, recommend to the taveral rtates to pase law* making' It eipreaely the duty of tha krepers of thalr j?!l? to reaeiva and eafa keep U>r? in all ptlaoners committed under tha authority of the I; sited State", la arder. than Sua, to iaanre the a lait, titration of ,u*tlea- Resolved by tha Senate and House of Representative* of the United State, of Amnion, in Con*res* aaieabled, that In eaaa any State ehall not have complied with the *ald raeam meadatlan the Mar*bal In aueh Hate, nnder the Jlraetion ot tha jadge of the dietrlat, ha authorised to hire a eonranlent place ta aarv* as a temporary jell and to make th* nteMurj provision for the saf* keeping ot prisoner* committed undtr th* authority of th* ClIU4 State*, until permanent provision *hall be mule by It* for that purpoM; and the Mid Mar shal eball bo allowed hi* reasonable expemee inourred for the above purpose*, to be paid out of the Treasury of tho United State*;" and a resolution of OongroM of Mar oh Sd, 1831, provide* that " where any State or Btate* having oomplied with the recommendation of Congress in the resolution of the 33d day of Septem ber, 1769, eball havewlthdrawn.or shall hereafter with draw, either in whole or in part, the us* of their Jails for prisoners committed under she authority of the United States, the Marshal I in such State or States, under the direotion of the Judge of tb* district, shall be and is hereby authorised and required to hire a convenient place to serve as a temporary jail, and to make the necestary provision tor the sate keeping of prisoners committed under the authority of the United States, unta permanont provision shall be mad* by law for that purpose, and the said Marshal shall b* allowed bis reasonable expenses incurred for the above Surpo***, to be paid out ot the Treasury of the United tates. ' ' These various provisions of law remain unr* pealed By the law of Massachusetts, as that law stood before the act of the. Legislature ot that State, of tho 4th ol Marcb, 1843, the common jail* in th? respective counties were to be used for the dstention of any prisoners detained or committed by the authority ot the courts of the United State*, as well by the courts and magistrates ol tho Stat* ; but these provisions were abrogated and repealed by tho act of tfce Legi* lature of Massaohufttts. of the 34th of Match. 1843 That aot declares that ?o judge of any court or record of this commonwealth, and no justloe of the pe ace,. shall, horeafter, take oog nizanoe. or grant certificates, in oases that may arise tinier tbo third section of an aot of Congress passed February 12th 1793. and entitled "An Act respecting fugitives from justice and persons coaping from the service of their masters, to any person who claims any other person as a fugitive slave within the jurisdiotion of this commonwealth;" and it further deolares, that " No sheriff, deputy sheriff. ooron*r, constable, jailor, or other officer ot this commonwealth, (hall hereafter ari est or detain, or aid in the arrest or detention, or imprisonment In any jail, or other building belonging to this commonwealth, or to any county, olty, or town thereof, of any person for the reason that he is olalmed as a fugitive slave," and it further declare* that "Any justice of the peace, sheriff, deputy sheriff, coroner, ooastable, or jailor, who shall offend against the pro visions of this law, by in any way acting, direotly or indirectly, under the power conferred by the third section cf the act of Congress afore mentioned, shall forfeit a sum not exoeedlng one thousand dollars, for every such offence, tor th* us ? of the county where said cffence is committed, or shall be subject to imprisonment not exceeding one year in th* county jail." This law, it is obvious, had two object*. The first was to make it a penal offence In all officer* and magistrates ot the commonwealth to exercise powers conferred on tbt in by the act of Congress of tbe 13th of February, 1763, entitled ? An art respecting fugitives from jus tice. and persons escsping from the service ol their masters " and which powers they were fully competent to perform up to the time of this Inhibition and penal enactment, second to refuse the use of the jail* of the Stat* for the retention of any person olaimed as a fugitive slave. It ll deeply to b* lamented that the rnrnw of the*? enactments Is quite apparent. It was j to prevent. *6:=T?* the Legislature of au*? could prevent the law* ol Congre** (passed lor the purpose of carrying into efleot that artiols of the constitution ot the Unit'd States, which deolares that 1 No person, h* Id to service or labor in one State, under the laws I thereof, escaping into another. shall, In consequence ot any law or regulation therein, b* discharged trem such service or labor, but shall be delivered up on claim of tbe party to whom such service or labor may be due) from being carried into effect. But these acts ot B}ate legislation, although they may causs embarrassments and create expense cannot derogate either from the duty or th* authority of Congress t > carry out full* and fairly the "Win and Imperatlv constitutional provision' /or tbe asll rttf 6f plflftBI Wmnd to laber in one State, and escaping Into an other, to the party to whom such labor may be due It is quite cl-ar that, by the resolution ot Congres-i of Sd Marcb. 1831. tbe Marshal of tbe United States, I n any State In which the use of the jails o the state hs* been withdrawn, in whole or in part, from t tin purpose of the detention of persons committed under the authority ot tbe United States, Is not only empowered, but expreesly required, under the direction of the Judge ot tbe district, to hire a convenient place tor tbe safe k> eplng of prisoners committed uuder autho rity mi the United Mates It will be seen from papers accompanying this communication, that tbe att?n tl< n ot the Marshal ot Massachusetts wss distinctly called to this provision of th* law by a letter -roai the Becretary of tie Navy, of the date of i>*tober Hlh last There Is uo official lulormatlon that the Marshal ha? provided any such plaoe for tbe confinement ol bis prisoners. If be has not, it is to be regretted that j this power was not exercised by tho Marshal, under I tbe wmtka of the District Judge, Immediately on the paseage ?f tbe act cf the l.egialature of Masaacbu I setts, of the 34th of March 1H4.'<, and especially that It was not exercised on th? passage of the Fugitive Slave law ot the last sesilon, or when th" attention of the Marshal was afterward* particularly drawn to it It Is true that the rscap* from the Deputy Marshal is this case was not owing to the want of a prison or place ot confinement, bnt (till It Is cot easy to see how the prisoner could have been safely and oonv*nleotly detained during an adjournment of the hearing for sinie day*, without such place of confinement. If It eball appear that no such plaoe has b?en obtained, directions to the Marshal will be given to loss bo time in tbe diicbargeof this duty. 1 transmit to the Senate the copy of a proclamation Issued by me on th* 18th Inst .

Mr. Clat arose, and said that he had llitened with great pleasure to the inetsage, it? general tone, and Arm reaoiutioa to execute the law*, will b* satis factory to every one. lie regr*tt?d.tb* message did not say that the marshal had been diimiwed; bat he had r*ason to believe the President is subjecting the oonduct of the marshal to a terutlny which will end la his dismissal He had been gratified to witness the geseral execution of thla law; It had been executed In Indiana, under peculiarly difUoult circumstances. and also In Ohio; In repeated instance* It was executed In Pennsylvania, in Its capital and in Phlladelshla; it was executed also In the great metropolis ofthe Union, New York; It had been executed everywhere, except in Boston, where It has failed on two occasions. When the first failure occurred, he looked with anxiety to tbe next case, In order to see if the law would or would not be executed; and was greatly surprised to hear tbat the law had been resisted by a lawless mob, who bed entered the court house, and rescued from the officers of justice a person legally In their custody. When he had mad* allusion to the blacks and their outrageous conduct in this matter, he likewise meant to Include in his drnunotation the conduct of those, whether in b gh rr lew places, who. by their speech or advice, Induced, led on, and instigated those poor, deluded creatures to this open violation ot the law. II* expressed the hop* tbat, if there were defects in existing laws, provision be made by lrhl'-h those who instigate, indue*, persuad*. and lead on these miser able wretches to such aots of violence, will be brought to rondlgn punishment. He gave to the suggestions ot' tbe President his earnest support, and movd that the message be referred to ths Committee on th* Judiciary. Mr. Hale said h* was glad that the message bad en sent In? if for no other reason, b*'!*uie it showed tbat tbe President felt that his a i ministration had mad* itself ridiculous by issuing the proclamation; j and the document just read was nothing mors than a 1 labored eseay. to prov* that the proclamation wuj necessary. I he Idea of the great republic of the United Plates calling on its army and navy to as- ' scmbie and hold themselves in readiness to put down , a mob composed of a mere handful ot negroes, was 1 ridtculons in th* extreme. Boston has a population ot on* hundred and forty thousand, and within the j sound of the bell on the old 8tate House, there re sided half a million of people. In all Bta'.on there wer* Lot ever one thousand adult negroes; and they were doubtlets skulking in alleys, to avoid meeting the constables It was useless to attempt to mag nify this ii Hair into sometblog of consequence; it was too absurd, lie considered the proclamation of the President improper, unwise, impolitic, unnecessary, and vtry weak; with it be would have nothing to do Mr Oi.** remarked that th* conduct of the Senator i fiom New Hampshire did not surprise him; it was in conformity with his general course.
