We copy the following particulars of his release from the n. Y.

On the order of the same Jude who Flung him into prison. If the incarceration of this innocent Man against All Law and every Shadow of Justice proves that even under a democratic Syrum the private citizen a nor secure against arbitrary Power and violent malice on the part of magistrates his release equally Demon Strate that under such a system the Force of Public opinion is ure at last to right the u Moat in tag.

William on that she had the Legal right 10 do so. To this writ or. Williamson made return that Tho persons required were not in his custody and that accordingly to could not produce them. For making Liia return sir. Williamson was shut up in mount net sing prison on the 27th of july on the ground thut it was a false return and As such contemptuous toward the court. Since that time or. Williamson and his fronds Havo been incessantly engaged in endear ors to extricate him from this unjust and illegal confinement. As a matter of course they first applied to the courts of Pennsylvania whose Manifest an 1 primary duty it is to prot it the Liberty of her Citi Zens against arbitrary and tyrannous violence from whatsoever Quarter. The chief Justice refused to interfere and then with great expense and delay they re ported to the full Bench of justices who again after Long waiting gave their Notor ious decision in favor of judge Kane and his right to shut in men in jail without either Law or right. Meanwhile Tho Universal indignation of the country expressed through every conceivable Channel had not Only branded this unjust Jud e with u stamp from which his reputation can never recover but had been Felt by Bim As a Burden too great to be borne. Private suggestions were Given that any reasonable pretext would be adopted for the release of or. Willi Tuson and accordingly Jane Johnson a petition was presented hut True As Ull i s statements palpably were and just As were All its demands it was rather too Strong to be allowed. At the name Tim however the court took occasion to open the door for a different arrangement. Other proceedings were hid till filly judge Kane proposed that or. Williamson himself should appear and take ii mediator Steps for his liberation. Hereupon willing 1 to adopt every Means that should not com Promise Tho truth or surrender a principle or. Williamson petitioned for leave to a Poar Belore Tho court and purge himself of that total ant because of which he teas imprisoned. When this petition was presented Tho District attorney contended that the word legally " should be inserted so As to make or. Williamson admit that to was legally incarcerated which of course he would never have Dono. Hut so desirous was judge Kane of extricating himself from the detestable position in which to stood that he overruled the proposal and allowed the Peti Tion to pass As it was. Then or. William son was to answer Why he had not produced the bodies of Jane Johnson and her children As required by the original writ. To this interrogatory his reply now was simply a Lecausi it was Here again the District attorney sought to go further and compel him to answer whether to would have produced them had it Boon possible but this Tho judge also excluded and upon this answer released the prisoner.

Of late years it has afforded no More indication of the movements of the people than if its circulation had been co extensive with the run of the City Firo in Sines. It seems to have no connection with the feel inns views and aspirations of the masses.

The journal is perfectly 3lit in its View of the tendency of or Thole s speech. He has endeavoured Toj Crow a Gay and alluring Bridge across thertule which separate the few remaining j whigs from the democrats. He has sought to make the path pleasant by planting in it Tho primroses of pathos and poetry. His voice is the voice of the charmer tempting the men of new England to deduction. He is Iho Syren of the political a the Teri Naidorf Massachusetts wailing j about the ballot boxes to Tho confusion of to electors. Perhaps or. Choate thinks that he it consistent and with his limited political experience it May to very easy for him to cheat himself into that belief. He May think the Nebraska Bill to have been an honest and honorable piece of legislation. He May believe Tho Douglass Doc Trine to be Otho Dix. He May have come to the conclusion that after All it will be better to submit to the swindle than to raise a Hue and cry and if he does entertain that View his place is with the democratic p stand he must take it or remain in a Purgatoria equilibrium dangling Between Iho heaven of Liberty and the hell of Loco.

He can Mako the Mesilla Valley Blossom with roses he can paint in ravishing colors the tempting charms of Cuba to can convert the bombardment of Grey town i Toa i go Ofsebas-1 Topol he can Mako our foreign ministers. Marvels of sagacity and even Send Down Franklin i i Eric to posterity a statesman and a Patriot. These Are All hard eases and worthy of or. Choate s distinguished advocacy.

It Liaa no will of it own As the emperor says Mya the Senate. In to exactly to with this government a it now i. As 350,000 Dave Boldeia say so say Tho men at Wash ing. It is called ret of and or the people but it a a great mistake. Free is it there is not a breath of Freedom throughout the whale Domain Frodo the president Down to the smallest official. The president the Cabinet the army the Navy the supremo Couit the diplomatic corp All everything is on Tho aide of slavery. In you doubt it 1 when we lose the president we of course lose All of ulcers under him do we very Well. Now the fact that not an anti slavery Man has been elected pie i.

We say the govern mint is perverted it is not National it is sectional not of and for the people but for ruled by a slave oligarchy nor is Hunker democracy for the people it know no Protection either of life Liberty or the pursue t of democracy of Tho present j time is Only a new Way of spelling starchy.

Again we bowed Down to support Tho mexican War a War com Man cd solely to acquire slave territory and extend its curse. Bravn new England men shouldered their muskets at the Call of Lavery ready to die upon the Battleground. Then came the infernal fugitive slave Law men roared from nil Corner at Quiesce for the Sake of the Union and i Down we went upon our Knees to the feet of slavery. We consented to to Chang cd into bloodhounds at the Beck of our Nas ters turned our Home into prisons for the 1 capture of god s image then As though we Weto not humbled j enough Canu Tho Nebraska Gilill and our i voted full Jimr. , a orca or mistake never was Mado than to suppose that Maine would again stifle her conscience by Tho owl like cry of the Union is in danger we Havo said that Tho government was hostile to free Down now Lut us look at the supremo court. It is the most important Branch of the whole Ovcin ment. We will presently Depinon state to the Lotter if indeed to have not Dono so that slavery is Tho j great hebrew god of Thia Republic i note Aro nine juices of too supreme court every one of them no pro shivery men Ami were nominated to that office solely because they wow such the slave Stales with a free population of Only 6,219, j 436, live Fie judges. The fre slates with a free population of 14,000,000 have Only i four judges. In the free states it take 4,444,124 free men to be entitled to one judge. In the slave states it requires Only 1,243,989. Now we a a Theio is the Equality be-1 t Veen the North Ami South if every one of our judges were anti slavery men we Shoutd then be borne Down by slavery it would then Rule i. But to Havo not thai no not the meagre pittance of one voice to stand up in that court mud speak for the Protection of Northern rights no not one. J and this i4 the supreme court of this j Republic the same court that declared a Law to be constitutional that would bribe u Man to Send his lather Back to death that gave a judge five dollars to give a Man his Liberty but gives him ten dollars to de Prive him of it and we Aro romans Why in that Eller Day to be a roman was greater than n King and Franklin Pierce is the Man who in his Iua Tii pral said that that Law should be " cheerfully we knew he would say so he could not say otherwise.
