Babon saves his master. Jacques Pierrot who was born and brought up in the City of a Bourdeaux franc bought him a dog and mar-1 ried Bim a wife in the reign of the sixteenth la uis. His dog was a Large Brown Quot shabby creature which Quot Many called ugly but nobody Ever applied that epithet to Pierrot a wife who was Young Sylph like pretty and fascinating. Jacques loved two creatures a so be saw at least his dog and Bis wife. We mention t he dog first because he always d d and it was the one of his two loves which he first procured. Now though Jacqie loved bulb dog and wife and the dog seemed to love both master and mistress the wife for some reason did not love both husband and dog. But i singed the latter exceedingly perhaps because she fancied he divided affections that should have been All her own. A Jacques a she would frequently say to him a now do sell that ugly brute if you can find anybody fool enough to buy him or if not give him away. He is Only in the Way Here and eat As ranch As you or Quot a now my dear Jeanette a Jacques would reply a you Abe one of the sweetest and most reasonable Little beauties in. The world if you a Only Booboo a boy a a dog that knows As much As either of a speak for yourself master Jacques and not for me i its no great compliment to the dog to say he knows As much As you. But if he knew ten times As much of what use would be be to us f for he takes All out and brings nothing in a a but 1 like company a Well Haven to you me ? Lxi to re Jill fax it la Quot web 7 t a a i wish , and make a nightly report for your Benefit a a yes but i done to want any report and so prefer the dog who a always discreet and keeps a civil and then Jeanette you know be guards the Bouse at night a a guards i Codle Sticks Jacques a Why we be nothing for anybody to steal a a but the thieves Don t know that my dear you see. And then if some of the rascals should happen to hear you talking so sweetly to me who knows but they a just carry you off and leave me to break my heart in Solitude. You see i got Bobon for some purpose i done to exactly know what but it la furn up some Day As sure As in a a a pshaw you re a fool Jacques 1�?T a i know it but i can to help it any More than you can help boing so Sweet and pretty.�?T. A a Well there Jacques a Jeanette word generally wind up with a. Kiss a you Are a dear Good soul so you Are and if you la Only Promise to love me Best you May keep Bobon As Long As you like a this kind of colloquy go scially took place As often As once sometimes twice a we a ii jul Aueta to ginning with a firm determination to get i id of the dog and ending with her permission for him to remain As Long As his master might Bink proper. The subject of this family bickering was a very sagacious animal who behaved himself As All gentlemanly dogs should. His master did not stretch the truth a great Deal when he said that Bobon knew As much As himself or wife of the dog Vas a remarkable dog and would seem to comprehend Many things like a ration Al human being. For instance during the Wrangle about himself he would steal sorrowfully away under the bed or under the table and there with his Large Bright no file looking Brown eyes fixed earnestly upon the contending parties would seem to listen anxiously for the conclusion and then if favourable to himself As it generally was he would come Forth wagging his Tail and look up cheerfully almost humanly into the faces of both. Time rolled on France became As a troubled Ocean and a perfect tor Nado of human passion swept Jandly Over Tho ship of state. The Good but vacillating King master As p t under hatches and a monstrous and bloody insanity took the Nairn Ana ran the old Leaky and crime Laden vessels upon the Breakers of faction where she speedily became a wreck and engulfed hundreds of thousands of human beings who bad embarked cd her tor Tho voyage of life. A speaking without Ngure. That bloody epoch known As the reign of terror had begun in France thou sends of All classes and Ages were being daily dragged to prisons am Dun goons to be thence conveyed to rocking Guillot be and sink no hulks or to some open spot of fiendish massacre i hut so far Jacques anal Jeanette Tho often horrified at what they saw and heard remained unmolested j and Bobon still kept them company and a at last even Jeanette went so far As to say she was glad the Noble brute was with them,.apd, that she would not part with him fur any Money. Jacques Pierrot was a Smit h by of Aden which was a Good business in those Days,.when Fetters chains bolts swords axes knives and firearms were in requisition and Bali eve. Ing himself a Safe at the forgo As elsewhere he kept steadily at his work from Day to Day minding his own business giving everybody a Civ ii word and venturing no opinion on any subject. Bobon regularly accompanied him to it and from Quot his work and As Jacques it s rather precise on certain Points Jeanette might look out at a certain minute and see then both Side by Side coming up Quot the Street to their meals. One Day As the supper hour Drew be amp a Jeanette glanced at the clock and ,uickened1 All her motions a for she was a Little behind time with the meat and As Jacques Wasal ways so punctual she prided herself on always being ready for him at the minute. A at length the viands stood smolt ing on the table a and looking no a it Gam at the clock Jeanette was sur prised to perceive the minute hand lad passed the hour without Jacques being present a what can detain him she murmured with a strange dread of Quot evil creeping Over her As she hurried to the door and looked anxiously Down the Street a not to be seen either she continued with nervous anxiety a what can it mean Mon Dicu if they should have taken him away to prison in and Jeanette clasped her hands upon her heart and staggered Back i n to the House. Five ten fifteen minutes passed a Way and yet no Jacques. Hits sus Pense was hot to be Burse of Iii the reality however fearful something terrible must have happened and throwing a Light shawl Over her head Jeanette flew to the Smithery. The doors were open the fire was burning but no Jacques was there. She made hurried and Audi oils inquiries of her passers by but they scarcely heeded her for not a judicious time for persons to know anything or care to know anything about matters of state or about individual who bad mysteriously Dis. length Trio is toss of be Favette attracted the. of an old woman in the who i fms to Omro Trivau Quot Unen marched off Between two rough looking men who might be officers of the. Revolutionary commission. A of Mon Dieu i Mon Dieu my poor dear Jacques 1�?T cried the half frantic wife wringing her a As i feared he has bean taken to prison and i will follow Anddie with him 1�?T but it was not so easy for the an Happy Jeanette to follow the missing Jacques simply because she knew not where to go and no one not even the old woman could Tell her whither to had been taken. So she finally went Home in great distress to wait Lor another Day or some tidings of him bad scarcely entered the House when so heard Bobon scratching and whining at the door. The moment she admitted him he flew to his masters vacant seat at the table put his forepaws upon. It looked up sorrowfully in her face and gave Quot utterance to a Low Mournful cry. Where is your master Bobon a said Jeanette bursting into team. The dog jumped Down with a slight bark and ran to the then occurred to Jeanette to 1st him out and follow him. This she did and be led her to the massive Gate of the main prison of Burdeaux. Trembling by she knocked at the Gate and of the Porter who opened the wicket she inquired if Jacques Pierrot was confined Witban. The Man gruffly replied that he did no to know and did no to care to know and advised the fair questioner to go about her business. Thus repulsed poor Jeanette Down by the Gate and cried for hours the Noble dog standing Side her All the while and looking the sorrow which he had no language to express. When at last Jeanette got up and went Home with a heavy heart the intelligent Anital accompanied her to the door and then bounded away to take his Post at the prison Gate arid watch for an Opportunity to get in to his master. Jeanette passed a sleepless night praying Lor the deliverance of him she loved. The next morning at Day Light she again repaired to the Pris on. But Bobon. Was not to be Slio made further inquiries for her husband and Learned he was imprisoned within but could not to communicated with till after his trial it Ich would take place whenever the authorities should Seo. Proper what the charges were against him her informant either did not know or would not Tell. Poor Jeanette after this remained most of the Day at the Gate of the prison but heard nothing More concerning her husband and saw nothing More of Bobon. Tho evening following the dog returned to her and acted very strange la to marked and whined rubbed h�8 Bead against her Knees looked up w st filly and keenly into her face and occasionally put up a Paw to his Nec k As if to remove Bis Collar a whenever Jeanette would open the door As before for him to conduct her to his master be would catch hold of her dress with his Teeth and run Back and bowl plaintively and sat an to then go through with All his strange motions again. Bid he want to communicate Sony thing poor fellow ? at length it occurred to Jeanette that Bis Collar might Hurt him find she proceeded to remove it a Pho dog held perfectly still till she bad accomplished her purpose and then whined joyously wagged his Tail and skip pad about playfully. A but there appeared to be nothing wrong about the Collar and Jeanette a would have buckled it on again oily that when Eer she attempted it the poor brute would Crouch Down and howl so a mournfully As to cause her to desist. Suddenly in turning the Collar Over in her band Jeanette to her great Surprise and Delight espied a few words scratched along the Center asst might be with a Sharp Stone or Nail. With a palpitating heart she Ira mediately set to work to decipher them and soon with such feelings As Only brie in her ion might Elk Peric Nee she made them out As follows Quot fasten a bit of Pencil and paper to the Collar and let Bobon come Back to jticques.�?�. Trembling by Jeanette set to work to comply with this request of her. Poor dear imprisoned1 husband arid As soon As this was accomplished the dog quietly permitted her to b Rick be on the Collar and rushed with a bark and a bound through the door open for his exit. A the night and next Day passed slowly away without the anti oils wife hearing anything More from her husband but the night ensuing the dog came Back and on removing his Collar she found pencilled on the paper she had sent the following Hope Ful note. A a in a confined in an upper the grated window is toward the East. Between the prison and an open space beyond is a High Wall. There a a Fine saw Down at the shop amongst my Small Best tools made from the mainspring of a water. Send me that coiled up in the Collar of Bobon. I always told you 1 bought that dog for something and now i know for what. I think i can Cut the bars and lower myself into the the second night from this at two of clock precisely throw one end of a rope Over the Wah. And fasten the other so that i can draw myself up if i happen to get out and with the saints Blessing i May. I done to know what in a charged and rather to. Off with to not very closely watched. Don t fall me and soon i Hope your will again clasp your poor Jacques.�?�. It is needless to follow out the result in detail. The saw was found and secreted in the Collar of Bobon who True to an instinct amounting to reason flew Back to the prison and awaiting his Chance of dodging in at the first opening of the terribly exciting were the hours passed by Jeanette till the time came for her to act and to be Happy with Success or be. Rendered wretched by failure. At one of clock of the eventful night which was to witness her happiness or misery the trembling and half fainting wife took her station in the deep Shade of the Eastern Wall of the prison with a rope coiled in one hand and Bobon who had joined her a few hours before now standing quietly Quot patiently by her Side. Of How her poor heart beat 1 and How every sound made the blood leap and her nerves thrill i _ at last the great clock of a neighbouring Cathedral struck heavily and solemnly the hour of two. No longer trembling but Nerving herself for the great purpose she had in View Jeanette quickly poised the Coil in her right hand and holding firmly to one end of it with her left sent it upward with a sincere prayer into the air and heard a faint Dull sound As it struck on the other aide.1 was he there somebody was for in less than a minute she Felt a slight pull upon the rope. Quickly fastening her end around her body she grasped it with both her bands and thus held against the heavier Strain that followed. Harder and heavier became the Strain upon the rope but throwing herself against the Wall she still held firmly till she Felt the Cord suddenly loosen and then looking upward her heart fairly leaped to her Mouth As she beheld a dark figure upon he top of the Wall. A minute later Jacques stood Safe beside Here having run Down along the rope which be had taken the precaution to fasten of the other Side before making his ascent a no word was now spoken not a whisper even the dog remained the hand of Jeanette Jacques stealthily silently and hurriedly her away. Through one dark and narrow Street after another till to reached a place of safety. The next Day a search was made for him but be managed to Koep himself secreted till after the Heign of murder had ceased to be and then be came Forth from his hiding place and made a boast of his own cunning his wife s Devotion and his dog s sagacity. It Wilt be remembered that a few years ago certain ministers refused to notice the Day of prayer because or. Buchanan was president and appointed that Day what would be Aid of a Minster now who would refuse to respond to or.

Woodward. the 3.tl Day of March 1803 the Oon Grees of the United states passed an act for a enrolling and calling out the National forces and for other purposes Quot which is commonly called the conscript ion jaw. The Plain tiffs who Are citizens of Pennsylvania have Sot Forth the act fully in their Bills and they complain that they have been drafted into Tho military service of the government in Parsi Ance of said enactment but that the same is Anco nation tonal and void and that the defendants who Are engaged in exe enting it have violated Quot the rights and Are about to invade the personal Liberty Oft be Plant ifs end therefore they invoke the equitable interposition of this court to enjoin the defendants against the further exert Tion of the said act. For the jurisdiction of this court to set aside an act of Congress As unconstitutional and to Grant the Relief prayed for i refer myself to the views of the chief Jas Tate in the opinion he has just delivered in these cases and i come at once constitutional question. The act begins with a preamble which recite the existing insurrection and rebellion against the authority of the United slates the duty of the government to suppress insurrection and rebellion to guarantee to Ench state a Republican form or government and to preserve the pub lie Tranquility and declare that for these High purposes a military Force is indispensable a to raise and support which All persons ought willingly to contribute a and that no service ii More praiseworthy and honorable than the maintenance of the Constitution and the Union a and Tien goes on to provide of r the enrolling of All the Able Bod led Shnte Cit Rasos of the United states and persons of foreign birth who have declared their intention to been cafe citizens Between Tho Oges of Twenty one. And years and these Able bodied citizens and foreigners with certain exceptions afterwards enumerated Are declared a tie National Orcey and made liable to perform military duty when called out by the president. Tho act divides the count re into military districts corresponding with the congressional districts provides for Provost marshals and enrolling boards and regulates the details of such drafts As the president shall order to be made from the National forces so enrolled. The payment of $360 excuses any drafted person so that it is in fact a Law providing for a temp Ulory draft or conscription of such citizens As Are unwillingly or unable to Purchase exempt. Tion at the stipulated Price. It is the first in stance id our history of legislation forcing a great Public Burthen on the poor. Our state of Rah Sann r a Entha men who Are not Worth $300 from paying their own debts is in striking contrast with this conscription which devolves upon such men the Burthen Bieh belong to the whole a National forces a and to which a fall persons Quot ought willingly t0 contribute. This however is an objection to the spirit of the enactment rather than its con Statuti tonality. The Diacri Ptim a of persons to be enrolled Able bodied citizens Between Twenty and vhf suit Tancill by the description of the militia As defined in our Pennsylvania statutes and probably in the statutes of Alt the states. The National forces then mean the militia of the states certainly include the militia of Pennsylvania. This expression a National for yes a modern Langton go when so applied.

To these representatives of the states and the Peep in this Power of originating War was committed hut even their hands it was restrained by the list nation of biennial a. Pro nations for Tho support of the armies they might raise. Of course no could be raised or supported which did not command popular approbation and it was rightly considered that voluntary enlistments would never be wanting to recruit the ranks of such an . The War Power existing Only for the Protection of the people and Leit As far As it was possible to leave it in their own hands was incapable of be set used without their consent and therefor con to never languish for enlistments. They would be ready enough to recruit the ranks of any they deemed necessary to their safety. Thus Tho theory of the Constitution placed this great Power like other governmental Powers directly upon Tho consent of the governed. The theory itself was founded on free and fair elections which Are the fundamental postulate of the Constitution. If the patronage and Power of Tho government shall Ever be employed to control popular elections representatives of the people May cease to he their real representatives and the armies which May be raised May fit so Ooms Hans Quot Public Confidence As Tali Root the necessary recruits Aid then conscript lairs and other extra cub tit uti onal expedients May become necessary to fill the ranks. But governmental interference with popular e sections w ill be subversion of the Constitution and no constitutional argument can assume such a possibility. Supposing that the people Are always to be fairly represented in the balls of Congress i maintain that it is grievous injustice to them to legislate on the Assuta a Tob that any War honestly waged for constitutional objects will not always have such sympathy tend support from the people As will secure All necessary enlistments. Equally unjust to their intelligence is it to suppose that they meant to Eon for on their servants the Power to impress them into h War which they could not approve. _ when to these considerations we add the ability of a great country like ours to stimulate and Reward enlistments both at Home and abroad by bounties pensions and homesteads As Well As by political patronage in countless forms we see How Little necessity or warrant there is for implying a Grant of the Imperial Power of conscription. There is nothing in the history of the Constitution nor in those Elk Eilent Quot contemporaneous papers called the federalist to justify the opine a ion that this vast Power lies wrapped up in the Fec Plain words of the 13th clause whilst the subsequent clauses concerning the militia ab1-Soiuteiy forbid it. If the very improbable ease be suppose he a that enlistments into the Federal armies might become so no Mere in a particular state at sensibly to impair its own proper military Power is it not much More improbable that the state meant to Confer upon Tho general government the Power to deprive them at its own pleasure altogether of the militia by forced levies ? yet this might easily happen if the Power of conscription be conceded to there Are no limitations expressed nothing to compel Congress to observe quotas and proportions As among the several states nothing to prevent their Lifa Ftfe armies wholly from on a state taking Quot every Able bodied citizen out of a it to the in fingering if not utter undoing of All its Domestic interests. And besides if we concede or to the language of the Quot thirteenth Quot clause i destroy the Force and effect of the of Tho sixteenth and seventeenth clauses. A Madd the instrument self destructive which is Viola ing attn. At is a total Misnomer when applied to the militia Quot for the militia is a state institution. The general government has no militia. The state militia always highly esteemed As one of the bulwarks of our liberties recognized in the Federal Constitution and it is not in the Power of Congress to obliterate them or to merge them in a National unless there is More magic in a name than has Ever been supposed this conscript jaw was intended to act upon the state militia and our question is therefore whether Congress has Power to impress or draft the m ii Tia of the state. I cannot perceive what objection can be taken to this statement of the question for surely it will not be argued that calling the militia National forces makes them something else than militia. If Congress did not mean to draft the militia under this Law where did they expect to find the National forces a a ally Bie bodied White male citizens Between the Ages of Twenty one and years residing state and not exempted by the Laws of United states a with certain specified exceptions constitute our state militia. Will it to said that the conscript Law was not intended to operate on these ? i thick it will not. Then if. It does Tench and was framed and designed to draft this very cl�9s of citizens no possible objection can taken to the above statement of the question we have to decide. Quote therefore repeat the question with Greet Confidence in its a Curacy has Congress the constitutional Power to impress or draft into the military service of the United states the militiamen of Pennsylvania ? this question has to be answered by the con dilution of the United states because that instrument framed by deputies of the people of the states and ratified and put in to effect by the states themselves in their respective Eop orate capacities delegates to Congress All Tho Pownin that body can exercise. These delegations Are either express or such implications As Are a ssh of a. Tial to the execution of expressly delegated Powers. There Are but three provisions in the Constitution of the United states that can by appealed to in support of this legislation. In Ordinary editions they stand numbered As clauses 13,16 and 17 of the Viii Section of act 1, of the Constitution. Congress shall have Power to raise and support armies but no appropriations of Money to. That use shall be for a Lunger term than two years.-. A diff. Congress shall Hare Power to provide for calling Forth the militia to. Execute the jaws of the Union to suppress insurrection and repel invasions. �?o17. Congress shall Havo Power to provide for organising arming and disciplining the militia and for governing Snow part of them As May be employed in the service of the United states reserving to the states respectively the appointment of the officers and the authority of training the militia according the the discipline prescribed by Congress.�?�. To raise armies a these ate Large words i what do they mean ? there could be no limitation upon the number or size of the armies to be raised for Alt possible cob Cogen cies could not be foreseen but our question has not reference to numbers or size but to the Mode of raising armies. The framers of the Constitution and the states who adopted it derived their ideas of government principally from the example of great Britain certainly not from any of the More Imperial and despotic governments of the Earth. What they meant to make was a More free Constitution than that of great by Iraina taking that 88 a Model in some things but enlarging the basis of popular rights in All respects that would be sons silent with order and stability. They knew that the British bed generally been recruited by voluntary enlistments stimulated by wages and bounties and that the few instances of impressment and forced conscription of land forces had met with the Disfavour of the English nation and had led to preventive statutes. In 1704, and again in 1807, conscript Tion Hills were attempted in Parlia Neift but Laid aside As unconstitutional. During the american a revolution a statute 19 Fleo. Ill a 70, permitted the impressment of and disorderly persons not following any lawful Trade or haying some substance sufficient for their subsistence a and this. Was As far As English legislation had gone when on Federal Constitution Wak planned assuredly the framers of., our Constitution did not intend to subject the people of the state to a system of conscription which was applied in Only to paupers Tredy vagabonds. On the contrary. I infer that Tho Power Confer Quot red of Congress was the Power to raise armies by the Ordinary English Mode of vols try in Lisments. A a the people were justly standing or Mies hence they took away most of Power from the executive where under Monarch my forms it generally resides and vested it in the legislative department in ene Branch Nat Detjon con Rea in Congress has not the Ceil and therefore t argue Congress i Power to draft them. Is an express Rule of the Constitution to give Way to an implied one a if the thirteenth clause confers Power to draft the militia the words of the sixteenth and seventeenth clauses Are the idles that were Ever written. But if the eighteenth conferred Ohio the Power to enlist volunteers then the Aduso quent clauses become very intelligible stand Well with the thirteenth and add essentially to the martial faculties Oft be Federal government look at those clauses. The militia Are to he called Forth to execute the Laws of the Union suppress insurrections and repel invasions to a organized armed and disciplined by the state but according to the Laws of Congress Aud such part of them As May be employed in the service of the United states Are to be governed by the president but office red by the respective states. Now this conscription Law recites an a existing insurrection and rebellion As the ground and reason not far calling Forth the militia under the above provisions but for drafting them into the military service of the United states. The very Case has occurred in which the Constitution says the militia shall be called out under state officers but Congress says they shall be drafted in contempt of state authority. General Washington and the men of his Day did not so read the Constitution when in suppressing the whisky insurrection in this state they paid the most scrupulous regard to the rights and pm were of the state. Under pressure of a foreign War a conscript Bill was reported in Congress in 1814, but it did not pass and if it had it would have been no precedent for this Law because we Are dealing with an insure Rostion and insurrections Are specially provided for in. The . If to support a foreign War Congress May draft the militia which i do Noi admit the Power of draft to supp to is insurrections is not to be implied since another made of suppressing insurrections is expressly provided. When Astaire is called on for its quota of militia it May determine by lot who of the Quot whole number of its enrolled militia aha la answer the Call and thus Stai e drafts Are i site regular but a congressional draft to Kip Preti insurrection is an innovation that has no warrant in the history or text of the Constitution a either such a Law or the Constitution must to set aside. They cannot stand together. And happily no ill consequences can flow from adhering to the Constitution for the standing of the Federal government recruited by enli8tmedta in the Ordinary Way with the state militia called Forth according to he Constitution Are a Force quite sufficient to subdued any rebellion that is capable of being subdued by Force of . Sueb a formidable Force wisely wielded in connection with a paternal and patriotic administration of All other Constitution Al Powers will never fail to put Down refractory. \ malcontents and preserve peace and Good order a Sibonga the american people. This can script Law therefore not sanctioned by the cons Titu. Tion is not adapted to the exigencies of tie times. Nor Likely to have Success As a War measure in its political bearings eve i More than in its military aspects it is subversive of the Constitution and of the right of citizens that depend upon slate authority.
