But pile of the agony lie it through and we can Ridi to place and and execration trom All Patno Tio men. Prom Ilio Boilon Day realty to the Constitution of the United states. We Lay before our readers this morning a copy of the letter to which we alluded several Days Smice addressed by Hon. R. A. Chapman of Springfield to Bis excellency governor Gantner declining Tho Appi int ment which the governor had tendered him. To be commissioner under the personal Liberty act pissed at Tho recent session of the Massachusetts legislature. The subject seemed to us to possess such general interest and importance that we requested to be furnished with a copy of the letter and Are gratified to have the pleasure of laying it Batore the Public. The duties of the Commissi to be appointed Are defined in that Lee nth Section of Tho pc Reonal Liberty act wherein it is provided that Quot the governor by and Vith the advice and consent of the Council shall appoint in every county one or More comaris Sonere Learned in Tho Law Whoso duty it shall to in their respective counties when Ai Yore on in this state is a Ryste 1 or seized of Halki a of boing arrested or seized As a fugitive from service or labor in being informed thereof diligently and faithfully to use All lawful Means to protect defend Aud secure to such alleged fugitive a fair and impartial trial by jury and the Benefit of the provision to of this now what is Here called Quot the Lien Elit of the provisions of this act Quot As our readers Wall know is the Benefit Quot supposed to to derived from attempts in Tho name of the state of Massa Susetts to thwart the execution of the Laws f the United states. Some of Quot Tho provi icons of this act Quot contrary to the Constitution United states and some Are believed Gay no loss distinguished a state authority ban our own Massachusetts attorney gon ral to to contrary to Tho Constitution of Massachusetts. We have not heard of the appointment of any Othor commissioners and we believe that none have been publicly announced. Or Chapman s answer to the governor s appoint Niento was Manly prompt and patriotic. Tho remarks of or. Chapman upon Thi character of tie statute Asau attempt a nullification Quot and its objectionable feature in other respects Tiiu commend Hemsel to the judgment of the retailer who not longer detain from the letter itself although Tho subject suggests further remarks which to had designed to make. Sybl Sofien june 11th, 186 a Sia-1 have the Honor to acknowledge Tho receipt of your excellency s commission appointing me to the office of commissioner for the county of Hampden under the act entitled Quot an act to protect Tho rights and liberties of Tho people of Tho Commonwealth of Massachusetts Quot passed by the legislature at their late session., i deem it my duty to inform your excellency that i have tor Many Jesaia held and still continue to hold the office of comm sooner of the Cin Iuit court of the United states and it being an office which in my opinion it is proper and honorable for any Good citizen of Massachusetts to hold and it being convenient and useful to Tho Public that there should to Sincli a magistrate residing in 1 did not resign Tho office within after the passage of the act above referred to nor have 1, at present and intention to do so. Carefully read Tho act and beg leave to Call the attention of your excellency to the 13th and uth sections which Are As Tol expose them to punishment in ler the Law of the United states and tur is Hing no adequate Force to protect them from such punishment and those artful Post Icilus who have wheeled the Legisla Ture into the enactment of such provision deserve Tho severest reprehension. The act is entitled Quot an act to protect Thi rights and liberties of the people of Tai Commonwealth of yet Thi most that it attempts to do in relation to their rights and liberties is to violate them. The a constitutional provisions indicated by pc sex Collence in your veto of the Bill and the letter of Tho attorney general which i companies it. Are clearly of this those who think to protect our rights and liberties by violating the Constitution which them Are but poorly qualified tor Thi Trust of protecting them and do not represent the intelligence the Wisdom or the patriotism of the Commonwealth. Where the violate the rights of Tho people by unconstitutional pro visions it attempts to Embarrass them. Evry citizen has the right to Avail himself of Tho Laws of the United suites when Occam and in every week and almost eve that passes some of our citizens a Vail themselves of those i through Tho Agency of Tho United states commissioner. Yet this act seeks to detox Evory citizen from holding this office Whilt at the same time it does not conto Plati secession but professes to exist under allegiance to the United slates and voted for by those who had sworn such allegiance. If Tho commissioner holds an office under the govenis Mentor Tho state it proposes to Punili him by a n unconstitutional removal but if to hold no such office it assails him with Rudo vituperation. If it could by these Means prevent every citizen of Tho state from hold ing Tho office of commissioner Tho Only it feet would be to compel Tho circuit co dirt to select these officers elsewhere to Embarrass Theja Polo of this state in the prosecution and defence of very important Legal rights and to leave Many criminals to escape from Justice. Without noticing All the objectionable features of this act i beg leave to mention one which adopts a principle acted on Only by despotic governments of Tho most arbitrary character but repudiated by every Reph Licati government and by every monarchy that Al lows to the people any decent measure o Legal prote cuon. I Gofur w Tho right to in. Tain and employ counsel Aud the right of counsel to he rein ined and employed prosecution and defence of cases in courts of Law. I venture to Assort that this right is of the essential and necessary safeguards of Quot in and Liberty. It must be secured Poison even to criminals of Tho worst Char actor otherwise there can be no reliable so Uriv for the just and proper administration if the Laws of Tho land. But this act assume that the people hold this right at the pleasure f the legislature and that a Pari having temporary Power in that body May p.is3 Sti tubes depriving the citizen of its enjoyment cases inhere it May to obnoxious to them the act is apparently designed to Aid per sons who May be claimed As fugitive slaves oily Gammon. The speech of Henri in sos at the con to Button was a note worthy thing not for an Worth or Merit in itself but for the Posi Lioi of the Man As the Mouth Poco of others. 1 waa a plausible speech in which the Enven Omad Malico of the fanatic was masked by the cunning of the politician. Taken in its whole Tenor and spirit however it was Ai u Mist Keahle abolition address looking to the final destruction of slavery through sex Temal political action and using the anti slavery sentiment As a political lever. It or. Clat had been living and had replied to him How appropriately he might have said As he did on another occasion it is Lecause these Ultra abolition lists have ceased to employ the instruments of reason and a equation have Adt their cause political and have appealed to the Hallot Hoz that i am induced to address or the Greencastle Banner a Lead know no thug paper in this state thus Quot Dis co Raeth Quot on the swallowing up of Quot Sam by his ethiopian rival k. N. State Council. A meeting of the state Council of k. A were in session last week at Indianapolis. A platform was adopted which has not been a abolished As yet but we understand there is title difference Between it and that of the Republican mass meeting. The action of the delegates to the Philadelphia convention were endorsed and the National platform rejected. Tho Council also declared itself entirely disconnected from Tho National Council and made arrangements to Corres Pond with All the seceding states for the purpose of effecting a Northern organization and the nomination of a Man for the presidency m 1836. We have bit few words to say relative to this action of Tho state Council. We regret very much the course they have taken and cannot think they represented the will of the party in the state. What right had they to a Belve the party from All connection with. The National Cound they assume possibility of which they had no right. Are thay not More guilty than the men that Tore Down the time honoured Compromise line one party violated the thence plighted plea mgl of Tho nation while the other his sold out Quot lock Stock and Harryl Quot that which they had Simm to defend nth Quot hands joined in taken of a fast a Root my Afredton which should Ever Hind a Fife states of Las what now a has Lecome of our toasted Organ nation modelled after of Amati cation Ltd the muted states and.

I Trust that your Delency s Strong and patriotic protest supplicant for Tho right of residence. While the nations of Europe offer Only so much toleration As is Pat ibo with the safety of the state Church America offers full Roh Gions Liberty to All. I he doctrine of toleration belongs to old Worril not to the new. Which preterm grander one of Equality of Shl in counties like England dissenting sects grow Pii Nily up. Like under the Upas tree. In Tho United states there Are no dissenting sects and All grow up Good and bad together like wheat and cheat in Tho same Field. The institutions knew that the people would winnow Iho True from the false and that the bad Gram would always Bear but Small proportion to the Good. It is Trio that the idea of Quot Church and state Quot was at one time half admitted in America. The Early immigrants Practised in heir turn what they had suffered from in Tho lid world. They inflicted punishments for opinion s Sake while professing great liber.1-sm. William Penn himself was inclined to establish an inquiry into religious opinions theological tests tor Sottler.
