Il'rom the Memphis Appeal, March IS ) A considerable diversity of opinion pre. ails in regard to martial law, character, extent and ineti uinentRlities. Many person? suppose that military law is martial law. This is an error. The former is a code of. laws prescribed for the go, eminent of tb? army. It relates exclusively to persons attached to wte military sorvice, and does not, in its operations, embrace those engaged iu ordinary eivil employments. Martial law, on the contrary, embraces every deee.-option of persons within the rlty or district over which it has Ijoou eBtabiieh'-d. It is not itgiined anil ascertained by enactments and judicial <ie< n i< n-n- in the case of military law. Iti' nfwiVip* from IK? will and judtmmt of !Ke comma linear whote duty it it to enforce 11. It supercedes the ordinary iaetritnsntalii.es of courts, such ue Judges, juries and ehrrlflb. It may even suspend, for tns time b*ing, the great writ of habeas oerpoe. In otKrr worth, martial law may be raid to he no law at all, hut rather the unll of the military tmtmandiml, regulated, it is true, by an enlightened regard for tho general welfare. It* truo totem and a,in ta to place all power, as we' aa ali the resources of the uie trlct. In the hands of the military authorities, to be used and wielded against the public fipemy. But at wt hao d t.rr ice must admit toil, at the name Huh it is piopei to remark that in the executiou of martial law meat prudence is to be exercised. Cliief Justice .Taney holds "Ihel no more force eau be used than is necessary, and if Ikt power bt turd for oppression, or any j wilful injury be doni to person. or property, the party by whom or whor e order it is done, will be responsible to the injured person. ' * * After rittng a munbar of legal authorities, the article proceed* as foUuws:? " The best opinion would seem to be that in time of war, the covtnment, by act if Congress, may flowt tin com'.ru unJii martial law in a UmiUUand mitigated eeiut; though there has beet> much controversy upon the limitation of the power. So. alee, in the language of Judge Wood bury, the commanding officer of troops may "extend certain righto ot war, net only ever bin camp, but Its ee vIrons and the near field of hie military operation^. lleymd thf, neither the goobrmnent mr the Military commamdtrran properly go. ivvunrfy VM /n' ?* wn ?r naff } xmrwtrrf/ f ? wagm iru wear p*wnn of far tuny, >an anlhoritt lk< comnumdt. to tufrnd or arrmt tho trntmiimi gf ordmatg ami prooat.
