Indianapolis Indiana Journal (Newspaper) - February 3, 1830, Indianapolis, Indiana Wednesday february a 18 to. A i a the Senate and the governor. A Short time before the late session of the general Assembly dosed a Bill a was passed providing for opening a part of the Michigan Road. The Bill originated in the Senate and passed that body with the name of a very respectable gentleman As commissioner. In the House of representatives the name of that gentleman was stricken out and that of Noah Nohle inserted in lieu of it. This was not done out of any disrespect to the gentleman originally named l it on account of a preference for Gen. Noble founded on an intimate acquaintance with Liim and a knowledge of his qualifications and also on account of his local situation which was thought to be peculiarly favourable for such an appointment. While the Bill was pending in the House of representatives tie governor was frequently in the lobby Elc pioneering against the insertion of or. Noble s name and declaring that if it should be continued he would not sign it. The House disregard Iii these threats passed the Bill with or. Noble s name As commissioner. After it was reported to the Senate with its amendments the governor continued to exert his influence with senators to have or. Noble s name expunged using coarse epithets in reference to him and decl iring As he had before done that he would not approve the Law if the name were retained. The Bill however passed both houses and was sent to the governor for his approbation and signature. After keeping the Bill two or three Days he signed it As approved and wrote at the of tto of the same Page the following remarks Quot Indianapolis Jan. 20, 1830. Quot Thor Are parts of Liis Bill which Niy mind cannot Sanction. The commissioner Nan Ioil principle morality and rpm icon we of lit to in Iti Bolive to be unworthy.

J. Enid Grant were to Settle in Indiana and he has Tho office Oft a Secretary of state a a a up Nance of that Imer Jion brought his opinions lie was employed to sustain it is Dent that he wishes to participate in the glory of the Triumph. When this production first attracted Niy notice i expected to see the question fairly Mot upon Legal principles As All Legal questions should be considered and a candid Effort made to Shew that the general principles of the decision Are erroneous and untenable or inapplicable to the Case without the introduction of any of those topics of remark so Well calculated to produce and so evidently intended to keep up the excitement which was artfully and indu4, created at the very commencement of the investigation before judge Morris but in this expectation i was disappointed. The Quot member of the bar Quot no doubt for the purpose of garnishing his production evincing his Zeal in the cause of his client and manifesting his sympathies and feelings towards All unfortunate slave holders stigmatised the opinion of judge Morris As an inhospitable and churlish denial of right endangering the character of the state for hospitality and decency to strangers and draws upon his imagination for a most lamentable picture of the wrongs and sufferings of poor Sewall and his family. He represents him As being Quot arrested imprisoned harassed persecuted and pillaged not Only of his property but of his peace and reputation Quot and Quot his tender and helpless family Quot As being Quot exposed to anxiety and distressing suspense in the absence of their persecuted husband and strange that the heart that could bleed and the Eye that could weep Over an imaginary picture of Sewall s misfortunes could not throb with one sympathetic be motion i or shed a solitary tear of Coram iteration for the real wrongs of an unfortunate and friendless woman and children dragged from their coun of try their parents find friends into a land of strangers and sold into bondage. In the closing paragraph of the argument he says Quot it certainly is n pcs Hje Viliy afghan the to a Large portion of Indiana to have the Money of emigrants from Virginia and Kentucky expended among i know that Many of our most worthy and useful citizens Are from those states and 1 would rejoice to see our state enriched by the arrival and settlement of Many More of the same character who having experienced some of the moral and political evils of slavery and removed beyond its contaminating influence to avoid them Are zealous and steadfast friends of Liberty and Equality. But i will not do file Quot member of the bar Quot the injustice to pretend that these Are the kind of emigrants he was speaking of it was the Money of the slave holding Emigrant he had in View. So understood it certain was a strange argument in a Legal question of right. If it proves any thins it proves not Only the right of Schwall to the negroes but it proves that in tie estimation of some Money will sweeten the bitterness of bondage that it will counterbalance All the evils consequent upon the existence of slavery and that at the sacrifice of in Liis u precede need act hav incr been made known to som of the senators or.

Comment 0 i this conduct of to e governor is u to necessary. A Bare recital of the facts will enable every Reader to form a Correct opinion in relation to it a cd to pronounce upon it that sentence which it merits. The judgment of the Senate As embraced in or. Liv Tojo s Resolution is certainly full and Emil Atic. A communication by Jin Eye end ear i Villi is on the subject of the debate which recently took place in this town Between or. Ray and or. Kid Well has been received and will be attended to hereafter. The legislature adjourned on saturday mor King last having been in session nearly eight weeks. A list of All the acts joint resolutions and memorials passed during the session will be found in the preceding columns. A a for the journal. Messes. Editors in your last number i observed a Quot sketch of the argument of before judge Parko on the hearing of the Case of Sewall against Nelly and others persons of Colour. Pre using that judge Morns will not have Leisure if so disposed to enter the Geld of controversy with every individual that May feel anxious to Avail himself of the present occasion to increase his popularity by assailing his opinion and distinguishing himself among the most clamorous of the supporters of the slave holding interests in Den gation of the rights of Man and the essential sovereignty and Independence of the state i shall venture to submit a few remarks upon this argument i am not ignorant of the obloquy that must be encountered by any one that utters a sentiment in Ivor of the decision of judge Morris and i am aware that among some who Are candidates for up Vic favor it is thought to be unpopular to defend the Legal or natural rights of the oppressed and unfortunate africans but As i have heard of no other punishment denounced Atra inst those that May concur with judge Morris in recognize Init the rights of the oppressed and maintaining the immutable principles of Justice and Equality As a cognized in our Constitution than excision from office i am willing to encounter the Hazard of maintaining tie Nii Sciples of Freedom at the expense of popularity. It is not unusual for counsel to submit their Artru rents to the Public when the decision of the court is contrary to their honest convictions of the Law of the Case but when a attorney a Kiwi bes his argument in a ease that has produced considerable Public excitement and which has been decided in accordance with the slaves into the state Quot they Are free. After making this admission the counsellor takes occasion to occupy More than a column in a display of Legal and historical learning of eloquence and of feeling on the subject of intention. This would seem to be a useless expenditure of strength after his admission if the author s primary object already alluded to is not kept in View. In this Parade to prove what was not denied or to disprove Liat was not asserted an Opportunity is afforded to introduce a reference to the Laws of England and an admirable change is runt upon imaginative reasons Bills of attainder and sex Post Facto Laws during the times of Quot barbarous and Bloodthirsty factions Quot All no doubt to display his great Saj rarity in detecting the monstrous Absurdity of the opinions of Judee Morris on the subject of holding slaves in Indiana and Illinois. If he had extended his researches into that Branch of the English Law which defines the personal i trots of individuals he would have found that in England tyrannical and oppressive As her government May be personal slave Rannit exist that the moment the slave touches her shores his Shack i fall and he Quot stands Rode enied and and this too whether his master is a citizen of a foreign country casually resident or visiting there a citizen of that country or of one of the colonies owing allegiance to the British and is the soil of America which has been sanctified by the blood of the revolution less free Are we less tenacious of fhe rights of Man or More deaf to the voice of humanity and the demands of Justice than the country from whose Thra Dom our emancipation is our greatest boast Tell it not in Europe publish it not on the Plains of Mexico or Colombia lest the Genius of Liberty Blush for tie degenerate sons of the founders of the american Republic. The admission that Quot an emigration to or within the Borders of any free state for the general purposes or with the intention of settling within such state would occasion the forfeiture of the right of property to the slaves thus introduced into such free state Quot is As i conceive a Concession of the whole ground nor can the counsel escape from the consequences of the admission. The member of the bar labors to Jirovec that the no it of the slaves in this Case could not accrue until t hey were carried into Illinois but no such distinction can exist in the nature of things. The right to Freedom accrues in consequence of the removal from the slave state with the intention of settling in a free state. The Law operates for the enfranchisement of the slaves not the punishment of the master. The slave Holder by bringing his slaves into Indiana violates no Law he has precisely the same right to bring them with him that he has to bring his horses or cattle. But if he does remove with them the principles of our Constitution immediately act for their Benefit and Disson e their obligations to servitude. The right of the slave to his Freedom is As perfect in Ohio or Indiana As in Illinois the Point of destination. In notes appended to his opinion judge Morris cited two cases directly in Point decided by courts in slave states the authority of which of Trot not on questions of this kind to be doubted. As the member of the bar has not remarked urn these cases it is probable he has not noticed the reference i will again cite them for his examination. A citizen and resident of Maryland hired his slave for a Short time to a citizen of Pennsylvania. The negro afterwards returned into Maryland Irinio the. Possession of his master and subsequently sued for his Freedom. The general court of that state decided that the act of hiring him in Pennsylvania entitled him to his Freedom. 4 Harris amp Mchenry rep. 418. The Case decided in the appellate court of Kentucky 1 Bibb 425, was a claim of the right of Nevith his slaves to Kentucky the court said upon this statement of facts they entertained no doubt of the right of he slaves to Freedom. Here was no theorising about the right to hold slaves Quot i i infirm to from one slave state to an outlier no carping about i politeness or want of comity no declamation a bout Quot pillaging Quot no quibbling about the state of Kentucky having no right to enforce the Laws of Pennsylvania but the pc ration of the Laws of Pennsylvania for the Benefit of the slave is distinctly admitted. I will again remark that it May be remembered that our Laws against slavery do not operate by Way of punishing the master for bringing them hither As he Vio ates no prohibition or incurs no penalty in so doing. It is optional with him whether he brings them or not but the Law simply operates for the Benefit of the slave and removes his Fetters. It is analogous to the Oji ration of the Law for the Protection of minors if i by contract become the creditor of a minor the Law will treat the contract As a nullity and i cannot enforce the payment but if i become his debtor he can compel me to pay yet no Man in his senses Ever considered it As an offence to contract with a minor or Ever spoke of the withholding of a remedy against the infant to enforce the contract As a punishment for so doing. All then that is said about Quot violate Tyg our Laws and Constitution punishing a Man in Indiana for violating the Laws of Illinois Quot and punishing him by Quot forfeiting his property Quot May go for what it is Worth. But As the member of the bar seems wonderfully enamoured with the right to slaves Quot in transit Quot from one slave state to another i will for the present admit the principle and does the admission help the Case of Sewall. There is no analogy Between carrying a slave from Virginia through this state to Missouri where the Law will protect the master s risk it and carrying him through to Illinois where the Law will most certainly emancipate the slave. To talk of protecting slave property Quot Xvi transit from a slave to a free state or in other words the right to hold the slave in bondage while passing from slavery tofreedom., is the Quot Sublime of but the friends of this new Mode of introducing slavery into the state insist that this question should to determined solely upon principles of National Law. This admitted and the claim of bewail is not Serene thened. The articles of compact in the ordinance of Congress for the government of the North Western territory is a part of our National Law and is equally obligatory upon the citizens of Virginia As upon the people of Indiana or Illinois. By this compact it is stipulated that Quot there shall be neither slavery nor involuntary servitude Quot in the territory. Illinois and Indiana Are each Paitson the same territory and each part is bound to know and respect the risk hts of the other. The admission of slavery in one would to a violation of the rights of the other of which she would have just and Legal grounds of complaint. An attempt is made to Shew that the act of Congress authorising the reclamation of slave is remedial in its character that it requires and has always received a Liberal construction. But the Quot member of the bar Quot when Quot Castin about Quot for an argument to prove this act to be remedial in its character must have Felt conscious that his position was untenable. It is remedial he says because it is knit Mari and because it Quot authorises a seizure Nar Rani and provides an expeditious proceeding by exp Rte testimony. These Are the very reasons that would be assigned by a lawyer who was not Quot casting about Quot for arguments to sustain a position contrary to generally received principles and maxims Why the act should be strictly construed. The Law is highly penal in its consequences As it authorizes a seizure without warrant and by a proceed ing divests an individual of his Liberty with out even acc since him of a crime. I have al ways understood that Laws of this character were to he strictly construed and even in or Dinar cases whore Asun Mary proc Odinot i authorized by Law the party is always required to Imirse the Rem Fly strictly after clearly Shew 1 ing that he has the Legal right to adopt this form of proceeding. Nor is the Merber of the bar much More fortunate in his attempt to prove that Liis Law has always Reo Eivid a Liberal construction. Lie proves indeed that judge Parke has always so decided but he utterly fails in producing a solitary collateral Case. He refers to two decisions in Pennsylva Nia but these cases when understood will be found in the principles to be deduced from View of All the facts in connexion with the Law to go farther than judge Morris has gone in his opinion. 1 will give a Short statement of one of the cases that the Public May see to what extern cities the counsel were reduced for authorities. At the time of the revolution slavery existed to a certain extent in Penn Sylvania. Soon after the formation of their state government the legislature passed a Law for the gradual abolition of slavery in which it was provided that persons casually resident in the state might hold their slaves for six months anal foreign ministers and members of Congress the seat of the Federal government then being in Philadelphia might hold their slaves during the time they continued to discharge their several functions. Jan Don he ves a member of Congress from South Carolina after an adjournment of a session hired a House in Germantown where he resided until the subsequent session. During this time and after he had resided in a. More than six months one of his slaves escaped and the question was raised whether the provision of the act of Pennsylvania in favour of members of Congress extended to a residence within the state during the period of adjournment and the court decided that the Richt of or. Cheves was not divested. Or. Cheves was a member of Congress residing within the state during an adjournment he was strictly within the provision of the statute. And what is the Plain common sense conclusion to be drawn from this Case it is that but for the statute of a. No casual resident or visitor no member of Congress or foreign minister could for an hour hold their slaves if they carried them within the boundaries of the state. The fact of the enactment of such a provision by the legislature of a. Is conclusive evidence that it was considered that the Constitution and Law of the state would emancipate every slave brought by his master within their limits without this saving exception. The newfangled doctrines of a right to slaves in transit of comity and decency to stranger and emigrants were not then thought of by the people of Pennsylvania. A considerable portion of the arg Menf is an attempt to prove that Schwall is still a citizen of Virginia and can a till exercise All the rights appertaining to such citizenship �1-Thiiugh he emigrated from that state with his family with the intention of settling in Illinois Liis determination of never again residing in a slave state and in his affidavit before judge Parke describes himself is brine hit of Virginia if an Emigrant from Virgilda permanently resident among us is still enlist la cd to All the rights of a citizen of that state until he acquires a citizen Phi it Here by a residence of twelve months he could at any time before such right accrued return to Virginia and vote serve on juries amp a. And if this Adhem Echar Trine that no exclusive privileges should be granted but this doctrine of adhesive citizen ship would secure to one portion of our citizens rights which Are denied to others. The people of the United states Are citizens in a two fold sense they Are citizens of the Federal govern sent and citizens of the respective by Sites Iii which titty reside. When a Roan emirates from Virginia to this state he loses a citizen of Virginia but retains that of a citizen of the United states. So soon As he comes among us he is amenable to our Laws entitled to their Protection and punishable for their violation. He May be term Oij a Denizen or resident until by a Resi Deuce of twelve months he acquires All the rights of a citizen. But All this i have Shewn to be immaterial. When a citizen of Virginia emirates to this a Tate with his slaves the connexion of master and slave is dissolved not because the master hag the character of rights of a citizen of Virginia not because he Hasvil whited outlaws and incurred a forfeiture but because the slave by the act of his master in bringing him within our jurisdiction is restored to his natural get to the enjoyment of Liberty and is by our is protected in its enjoyment in the opinion of Jud tre Morris a number of propositions were assumed As incontrovertible Uch As that the i principle of perfect Equality and the natural right of All men to the enjoy Merit of life and Liberty Are recognized in the National As Well As our state constitutions a that the privilege of holding any part of the human family in bondage is an exception to this general recognition of right and , aiming the Benefit of an exception in derogation of a eneral rules must bring himself strictly within the terms of the exception that the presumption in favor of Freedom is at least As Strong in favor of Inrig Cencer that penal statute Pareto be strictly con Sirufo and the it 4 Law tolerating the right of one to control ii sol utely the person of another not charged with any crime should be subjected to the same Rule of construction that our state is Sovereign and Independent and the authority of our Constitution and Laws absolute and supreme within our limits and that he citizen of another state even the citizen of a slave state can claim no right or exercise no Peiyi lege amour us that is denied to our own citizens unless the right has been expressly granted by the Federal compact or permission legally Given by our state autuori ies. I these principles had Quot been denied or their inapplicability to the facts of the Case demonstrated the member of the bar Quot might with a Little More propriety have denominated his a production an Quot argument Quot but they Are passed Over in silence leaving us in doubt whether the counsellor was unwilling to endanger his Legal reputation by encounter nor Tjem or that his mind Quot elevated and expanded to the Dimen Sions of the subject Quot lost sight of every thing hut the i policy the i politeness and the hardship of the Case considered with reference to the opinions the feelings and the interests of the Virginia slave Hoider. The cases referred to by judge Morns Are also passed Over without notice or comment. If themare not appropriate to the Case the fact could easily have been demonstrated if they Are not sound expositions of the Law it would have entitled the Quot member of the bar Quot to the listing gratitude of the owners of slaves in Maryland and Kentucky if he had Demon aged that their courts did not go far enough must part.
