The Daily Mails--The following are extract-
ed from papers received at this office yesterday
The papers reccised this morning firnl B.hi-
monre and the South, were thoroughly dienclhed
vith rain, and of course so worn and tom,: af to
render them neatly u-eless. A good part of the
Southern mail yesterday morning arrived in the
same situation. .
The Charleston Courier of the 3d and 5th inst,
appears to have had considerable swimming to
do in its passage to this city ; they were so wet
au- i nutiiataetiat iwe could make but little use
ofthem, and the thinppinz news entirely swept
away. All of hrcln is -t.-pecfully submniiud to
the Postmaster General -
Post-Office, Charleston, S. C.
,vveniber 5, 1821.
Our Northern mail came to us this oirninc
so cc.i, pletcly soaked that the papers. are alt en-,

P. S. The fault seems to be some where be-
tween P It is beyond question, that there is reason for
complaint, when it is so general. The Postmast-
er-General has endeavored to prevent this evil,
wt i hout effect. There is no way of preventing it,
we venture to s'g Reint, short of absolutely inter-
dic' ir, aiid prr-hitillxin the use of the round-top-
ped and round-bottomed post coaches, within
which it is impossible to transport the great mail
if:,r,v pinc'rers at all be carried. In the good

partly because they were of English fashion, but
partly to accommodate travellers, the mail can
only be carried before or behind the stage : in-
deed, its bulk is sometimes so swelled by packa-
ges of books, &c. from the public offices, that
the stage is often loaded both before and behind
as heavily as it will bear. The covering attempt-
ed to be put over these bags is not sufficient to
protect them from rain ;-nor do we see how they
can be guarded from the weather, otherwise than
by carrying them in the body of a coach or stage,
as the terms of he contract.require. The literal
compliance with the contract will have to be ex.
acted. If that does not cure the evil, there is
surely genius enough in this inventive nation to
devise some kind of a vehicle that will.

We have noted the intention of some citizens
of New Orleans to pay funeral honors to the me.
mory of Napoleon Bonaparte. We yesterday
received L'ami des Lois'.' of October 18 ; from
which itappears that a numerous meeting was
held on the 16th ult. at New Orleans, at which
Mr. Destrehan presided, and that a committee of,
arrangement was appointed for this occasion,
composed of Messrs. E. Livingston, Grymes,
Moreau Lislet, Mazureau, Canonge, and Tra.
buc. Several resolutions were adopted-one
instructing the committee to give three weeks
notice of the day fixed for, this commemoration ;
another instituting a subscription to defray the
expense; and another authorizing the committee
,to designate tw6 persons, to be charged with the
duty of mailing the funeral oration in honor of
Napoleon. When the meeting was dissolved a
subscription was opened to receive the names of
those present, for the above described purpose,
and in a few minutes about one thousand dol-
lars were subscribed. This looks as though
the good people of New Orleans were in earnest,

Hard Times.-The following may serve to
shew how hard the times are at Philadelphia :
"i The sale of the pews in the First Presbyte.
rian Meeting House, in Washington Square
which took place yesterday, (Nov. 11,) was nu
merously attended, and most of them brought
from five to eight hundred dollars each."

not a custom more honored itr the Lie.ach than
in the observance."*
Juicial Eloquence.-A mannatned Martin,
has been condemned to death in Maj. iaIus.:rl'
for highway robbery, and an eloquent sentence
has been pronounced by the Chief Justice, and
published in the papers of that state.:
.We think this wrong, because Judges are not
expect ; d to be eloquent, and cannot be so i a
criminal case, unless they wander from their
-..arh. A Judge, in passing sentenced performs a
duty which the law imposes on him--and has no
.-',I,,. do any more. There is no law that al-
lows a Judge to heap abuse upon a criminal who
Ihas incurred, and in this world is liable only to,
the penalties of the law. It is a cruel ce,-ibi'i.-,'
of 1l0cnitc to deliver to a poor wretch steeped in
agony to his very lips, a formal, cold-blooded,
rhetorical rebuke for what he has been, and fore,
boding of what he will he-written at perfect leis-
ure by a Judge in his study, entirely happy in all
that concerns him.
No man attends the sessions on sentence day
to 'learn the sentiments of the Judge, or to ascer-
tain his skill in the pathetic. The solemn sen-
tence of the law arrests his mind, impresses his
heart, and warns him to be virtuous. What would
be thought of the executioner, who, being requir-
ed to decapitate a criminal, should employ half
an hour in his presence in polishing the axe ?"

The question was then put by the Secretary,
and carried unanimously.
The President then rose, and addressed the
Convention as follows:
GENTLEIMEs : I am penetrated with a due sense, not
only of the honor conferred by your selection of me to
preside in this highly respectable body, but also of your
kindness and regard manifested by the unanimous reso-
lution which you have been pleased to adopt at the
close of the solemn duties which- the people have com-
mitted to us.
It is my sincere hope that the approbation of this
community may crown the result of oar consultations,
and that it may accomplish the momentous objects for
which we have been assembled, and redound 1.1, th li-
berty, tranquillity, and permanent, welfare, of our consti-
tuents, and of posterity.
Whilst I tender to you an affectionate adieu, indulge

A Cambridge (Eng.) paper mentions that a
boy about four years old, named Charles Raw-
son, son of a sailor, had the misfortune to fall
into a pit belonging to Peacock Inn, Boemt.-
He is supposed to have been in the water about
a quarter df an hour, during which time it is said
that his head was entirely immersed, but not his
whole body. After he was removed, three quar.
ters of an hour el; psed before any medical assist-
ance could be obtained. At length Dr. Crane
was found, but was not able to discover any signs
of life, except some degree of warmth, which he
thought. indicated a probability that animation
f might be restored. With that view, the Doctor
ordered the child to be placed in a warm bed ;
and until that could be provided, he attempted tc
renew respiration by an artificial method of inflat-
ing the lungs, aided by friction of the extremi.

The Romans have beeti reproached with in-
justice to Coriolanus; aut lie was justly con-
demned. He set too grmat a price upon his own
valor, and aiiotate]d io himself power in Rome,
which would not be submitted to in Corioli. His
violence and his pride outweighed his merits; he
would submit to no law, and was, therefore, just.

Half witted men cast upon religion the vices of
individual men, actuated by their wicked passions,
acting contrary to reason and rcliroi'. The two

are not religion-but they are the crimes of the
human passions under a religious mask.-Dillon.

The worm that dieth not ; and the fire that is not
A most wonderful confession, by a dying man,
has lately been made, explaining things that have
long been hidden in mystery ; and unfolding a
scene of horror which makes the eyes blood-shot
to look upon.
A few years ago a barn was burnt, and all at-
ILc.,p)I to discover the c'.rhfi,..j,i i' proved inef-
lectual. The dying man, rekrired to, tortured
by the pangs of conscience, to which those of
death, were sensations of pleasure, had the hor-
rid secret wrung from his soul. He confessed
that he had robbed and murdered a man, and
placing the corpse in the barn, had set it on fire
to conceal his crime. He had an accomplice ;
that accomplice is still living, and justice, though
slow of foot, will surely overtake him.
Such is a part of the story related to us in a way
to command our belief. Further particulars
shall be given soon. In the mean time let him

IW the existing revenues of the nation should, as
s apprehended, prove to be unequal to the pre-
ent national expenditures, it will become a sc-
ious question at the approaching session of Con- I
;ress, whether the revenue shall be increased,
whether internal or direct taxes shall be laid, or v
he appropriations and expenses of the govern- 1
nent reduced. We are not certain that it will be I
absolutely necessary to choose between these al
ernatives ; but if it should, we are under a very
strong impression that the people of Pennsylva-
ia would prefer a reduction of the national ex-
penditures to the leyyingof additional burdens,es-
pecially in the form of direct or domestic taxa-
ion. Though business and the prosperity of the
nation are gradually reviving, the improvement is
low. It is still as much.as the people generally
nan do to support their families ; and it is an in-
auspicious period'to require from them the pay-
ment of taxes, unless it be imperiously necessary.
We are therefore perfectly satisfied that the
people of this state, and of the Union at large,
would, if consulted by their representatives in
Congress, say that no taxes should at this time
be laid. Certain branches of national expendi-
ture, which it is unnecessary at present to point
out, may be judiciously retrenched ; and, in ad-
dition to this, the sinking fund of ten millions
may be reduced without producing any evil or
dissatisfaction. We wish to see the national debt
speedily redeemed; but we do not wish to see
the people l.-'pre.c'l by new burdens, in order
that final redemption may be accomplished soon-
er than would be consistent with their interest,
comfort, and tranquillity.-Franklin Gazette.


Mr. Charruard proposes to give, this winter,
in the city of New York, twenty-four select,
agreeable, and elegant balls ;" of which he gives
due notice to the ladies and gentlemen of fashion,
by advertisement in the newspapers. But, he
adds, as the elegance of the ball depends princi-
pally on the part of the ladies, Mr. Charruard
would advise them not to dance with their hats
or pelisses on, as that dress does not become a
ball room. The gentlemen, also, are strictly re-
quested not to dance in boots, frock coats, or sur-
tit-, on any account whatever, asnd not to enter
the ball room with reat coat, or cane.

were gratified in viewing a cow,two heifers, and a
bull, the most perfect animals we had ever be-
fore seen of the neat kind, We understand they
are of the full blooded Bakewell breed. Mr.
Reed also brings with him 150 full blooded Me-
rino sheep, superior to any we have ever before
examined, being a part of 500 which will coin-
pose his stock.
We are informed that Major Hull, of Dutchess
Co. has taken the Green Meadows 1 rm, on the
same Range, and intends to stock it with 1000
Merinoes. We wish them all the success their
enterpr ize will warrant.

hope the country will profit by their example,

4r. Morgan. : I noticed in your paper of the
24th instant, under the head of "Spirited Farm-
ing," that our green hills and fine water had at-
tractedl the attention of old Dutchess. I sincere-
ly rejoice that the race of the sheep are turned
towards, as much as I grieved at their being
turnedfrom us. T.he c'-rnlcpi.. fi'.m Dutcliess
point out the true imu.e t'f .ilt.ri-ia from our
land the greatest profit with he least labor. We
hope their e:-.. ni,lc ill be followed until every
hill and every vale is ornamented by these mist
useful and valuable animals. The rich may pro-
fit, but how is the new beginner and middling far-
mer to be benefitted? They must be thriving be-
fore we can say the country is prosperous.
In the city, I am informed, it is the custom for.
a cartman or mechanic, who depends on his dai-
ly labor for support, every Saturday night, to set
apart a small portion of his weekly earnings as a
payment tor.a. -., Ih;: rent; if he is successful, he
makes a lii i ,.|.-:i; the rest is given to his
wife to defray the expenses of the succeeding
week if she can save any thing, that is likewise
put into the strong box, which is. never opened
until q.itti.r day. 8-: these trifith(- weekly contri-
butiois, '.,d J.., of small beginiers,with only a
hoisc and cart, have been able to accumulate
Jlo-ir 2,, 50, arid one hundred hIiutm ii i ,llals!
Now let us see how we can apply this saving
p inciple to sheep fji rniig. Let the new begin-
nor on fifty acres, or one hundred pounds con-
tract, purchase twelve sheep, and consider the
wool as belonging to the landlord, to keep down
his interest. This is very easy. There is no-
place in this country, but where there is common
sufficient to pasture them, and, with a little exer-
tion, he can carry the-m through the winter, and
find himself amply repaid by the increase of his
flock, which will continue to multiply as he ad-
vances with his clearings, and not only the inte-
rest on his contract be kept down, but he will
soon be enabled to redeem his pledge, and as he
becomes a man of property, he will hold up his
head, increase his diligence, be-noticed for his
punctuality, and Ie -.fec id as a citizen.

A .aecW-at lued IlTil at Durham, Eng. in
which idiocy was set up as a cKlience. The Coin-
mion Sergeant, who made the statement for the
prosecution, mentioned a cause which had been
tried before a very learned Judge, with his opin-
ion respecting a knowledge of right from wrong.
Twa little female children were playing together
in a wood, when they quarrelled, and one of them,.
only eight years of age, killed the other. On her
committing the deed she became frightened, and
hid herself. In consequence of this hiding being
proved, the Judge gave it as his opinion that it
was a manifest knowledge of having done a crime,
and the child was executed accordingly.
[If all this be not fable, the Judge, more than the
child, deserved the gallows, fur sporting with the life of

Trope for Trope.-A clergyman preaching in
the neighborhood of Wappitig, observing that
most part of his audience were in the seafaring
way, very naturally embellished his discourse
with several nautical tropes and figures. Amongst
other things, he advised them to be ever on the

should bear'down upon them, he might be crippled

of Neptune, but let me tell you, that will de-

A just, though whimsical remark.

On Thursday week, a colored manr, who had
entered as steward of a vessel for Charleston,
and received his advance money, when the ves-
sel was about starting, refused to go-and being
urged to fulfil his engagement, jumped over-
board to escape, and was drowned, before any
assistance could reach him.

no time been insensible, however, that the Pro-

n Washington city, N'ov. 5, 1821.-Prepara.
tions are making here for the meeting of Con-
gress, which will be in less than a month. The
grand Electioneci ing Campaign, it is-said,) will be
opened as soon after the meeting as time will af-
ford for feeling the pulses of the iameibers-a
large proportion of whom are new ones. rhe
prominent candidates for the next Presidency now

paign.is expected. No one h'ss any idea of a
Congressional Caucus.-It w oud- danmn any cause
which should adopt one :-Of course, individual
exertion must be the greater, and thi campaign
begin earlier.
It is intimated, that many of the incumbents
in. office, some of whom have held .lucrauve ap.
pointments from fifteen to thirty years, will be
invited to fold up their robes, and retire with de-
cency. By the law of lay, 1820, limiting the
term of office of ce-tain officers, all commissions
or appointments made prior to the Is o l October,
1816, are to cease after the 30th September last :
and all others four years from their dates. The
'object of the law was to enable the President to
get clear of old and rich incumbents, without the
disagreeable course of absolute removal. It will
be recollected, that the law in question refers to
District Attorneys, Collectors of Customs, Naval
Officers, Surveyors of Customs, Navy Agents,
Registers of Lai.d Offices, &c. &c. If the spirit
of the law is executed, as it is said it will be, you
may easily conceive of the excitement it will cre-
ate among the veteran office holders, and the ac.
tivity it will occasion among the office seekers.
As far as the public voice on this subject has
been ascertained, it is loud in favor of the execu-
tion of the law in its spirit, and that the present
time is the best to make the experiment. The
President, it is suggested, will readily hearken to
the general voice, when ascertained from the
members. If there are honors and emoluments
in the public offices, they ought to be shared by
the community, and not by any perpetuitists, if
the public service will admit of it; and if labor
and duties are to be performed, they ought to be
divided."-Boston CentWiel.

A curious cheat has beeti practised upon a
number of unsuspecting Germans in this coun-
ty, and probably upon many in other places.
In Junie last, letter--, in the German language,
post-marked at Lebaiion; Pa. and signed T. Ad.
Reiclhert, were r.rceived by several Germans
here. Each .f these letters stated, that Mr.
Charles Petersen, of Philadelphia, had put into
the hands of the writer, a jacket of letters,
brought by the ship Alexander from Amsterdam,
aid that among them was one for the person he
then addressed; that thecost upon it was one dol-
lar, and that it should be immediately forwarded,
upon the transmission to himn at Lebanon, of a
par note to that ainou.t, In case the money was
not forwarded, he would leave the letter with a
person it Philadelphia, until the return of the
Alexander from Europe. To give the letter an
official appearance, there was printed in one cor-
ner of it a seal, containing the words, Corres-
pondence seal of imterica," and underneath it
written, 163, f.. B. Copie-W. Weber The
mo'ey, in many or all instances, was sentto him;
but the promised letters not being received' here,

says, in ans'i'cr, trat the fellow who wrCte the let-
ters and took out the answers, is a stranger, .who
has not since been he-.rd of, and that the whole
affair is, no doubt, a Duwch Yankee trick."

Many good people in this country, many of
our readers, and a great majority, perhaps, of our
reformers, conceive that France, in receiving the
Bourbons to the throne,-has lost all the benefits
and prospccfs of the revolution. This is so far
from being true, that we should perhaps be jus-
tified in asserting that, the benefits of the revo-
lution are reconciling the French to the restora-
tion of the Bourbons." The immensely multi-
plied number of proprietors of land, which took
place at the commencement of the revolution in
France, constituted a change in the condition of
society, infinitely greater than the elevation or fall
of dynasties; or the success or defeat of monar-
chy on the one hand ; or republicanism on the
other. We believe, indeed, what.general Foy
asserted in spirit, to the chamber of deputies-
that Napoleon's government was the only one
that the people liked, or which was adapted
'to their character or their taste. We will take a
fact.established by the best English and French
writers : about one half of the whole thirty-five
millions of the population of France are proprie-
tors of the soil: while in England not more than
one-sixth are proprietors, in a population of nine
millions and a half. This fact alone constitute-
an almost inconceivable difference in ihe condi-
tion of the two nations. It is true the Courier
and the quarterty Review will describe the per-
sons and appearances of these French proprietors
-man and wife working in -the field together:
and contrast their homes and comforts with the
neat English cottage, and busy house-wife, with
its domestic neatness,' kc. which those sleek and
comfortable gentlemen so well know how to do ;
and it is a very easy task to darken the shades in
one picture, and heighten the colors of another.
But the evils of English society are moving up-
wards: they are advancing to that. point from
which the French revolution took up its terrible
elements. It is particularly deserving of notice,
too, that the aristocracy of this kingdom are sece-
ding from their natural and constitutional posi-
tion between the crown and the people; and join-
ing the former in his apprehensions and defences
against the latter. This were a convincing prool
that tvhe pillars of our form of government are
breaking down ; and that the whole frame of so-
cietyis undergoing the most ominous change.
In respect to our approximation to the state
of France, previous to the revolution, we will
quote two remarkable instances.
The revenue of France, in the period alluded
to,became such a perfectly mystified system
that those who professed to regulate it, and direct
is provisions, could not comprehend its opera-
tion: and when M. Neckar.made out its scale of
defection at l,1i :''iiii-lhis successor, immedi
ately ar.l' .'itjds, Saiild it at eighty millions!
The rcuer.ue ,r CL-at Britain is equally mys-
tified, butinfinitely more enormous, and, in its ope-
rations, proportionally incomprehensible, A state-
ment of the revenue is dressed up to the eye
contrasted with itself at different times, but par.
ticular periods-but never in reference to its true
and distinct objects ; just as we would measure
the health of a patient, who has been in a bad and
d.:, i-ors way for twenty years! And we begin
by saying he is alive now-which is as much as
he was sixteen years ago-and therefore he is in
s (i. oi m,-l' a u'ay now as he was then This
ri i.: aL tLnent of the doctors who get their; feet
as long as they are retained in his service; and
knowing the patient's fortune, would keep him
alive, and make a merit of that, as long as he can
pay them. Now we will give his, (John Bull's,)
doctors the credit to say, that if he were now poli
tically, to die as a grub ; and. fate had already
spun the shroud of the sleeping Chrysolite--
they, the said doctors, would be the first, on his
resuscitation in a changed nature, to admire his
revolutionary wings, and congratulate him on
his political resurrection if there were a hope
that they might continue to be the family physi.
In the next place, looking into the history o
France, we find that, among the earliest symp
toms of the disease, is a difficulty of collecting the
taxes. It seemed," says a writer,-" as if all the
p, %e rs of the state conspired their own ruin.'
The, collecting of taxes formed an odious and ri
gorous Inquisition ; and the magistrates, at length
declared to the people, that they could not sane
tion the excessive imposts of the govcrnme.t
certain expressions, characteristic of the condi
tion of the people, were made in the parliament o
Paris, and gave a cue to the spirit of the times
and, France revolutionized, at a moment, like to
the present in England, when'efforts were beinf
made to ameliorate political evils; but whicl
efforts were beginning, at the wrong end. We
are partially attending to the corrupt state
of the representation, which is not partially, bu
generally corrupt; and should, therefore, be ge
nerally, and not partially, attended to: we have
coutaiinee of agriculture sitting, composed o
two ela'i"s of men; neither of which have any in
tIi;est in i b vir the present sufferers; but ar
both endeavoring to ward off the evil from th
apparently destined succeeding sufferers.,
The Eriglish peasant will in a short time b
annihilated; every hour of the present state o
things is confiscating his capital, or driving him
with the remnnantof his.fortunes, to cultivate othe
lands. The consequence is, that every hour-th
taxes continue to be shifted from the shoulder
'of the many to the few, and become more intole
rable with every day's experience.
The question of the aristocracy is, which sid
they siall take : and some are falling into th
lines of the minister; and some. are joining th
people. JVecessity is working this change; op
nionis comparatively powerless ; for the great
mass of society are moved by their interests, an
not by their opinions. The moment that the ou
posts of government shall appeal to the people
against the odious office of a monstrous and ty
rannous system of taxation-the existence of ou
political c.'mpact will be it stake. It is the mi'
fortuneofthe people-not their fault-that

M. Trencalye, Vicar-General of Digne, has

sciences at Paris. He remarks that the light

The village of Chateauneuf is situated in the
immune of Digne, in the department of the
power Alps, southeast of the little town of Mous-
ers, which is known for a very excellent manu-
ctory of earthenware. The village stands on
e extreme point of one of the first Alps, which
se amphitheafrically above Moustiers. It ccn-
ins, besides the church and parsonage, fourteen
)uses, on an eminence which is cut off by the
igles of'two othei mountains, one on the east,
nd the other thb west. The interval which di-
des the village from'the mountain to the east, is
narrow and deep that the sight of it inspires
error ; 105 scattered huts, chiefly on the east
de of ,he mountain, contain a population of o500
On Sunday, July 11th, 1819, M. Salonne, cler-
ymnian of Moustiers and Episcopal commission-
r, came to Chateaineuf to induct a new rector.
bout half an hour past ten, the procession went
om the parsonage to the church. The weather
as fine, only there was some heavy clouds in
te sky. The new rector hIad begun the celebra-
on of mass. A young man, eighteen years of
ge, was singing the epistle, when three claps of
i nder were heard, instantaneously succeeding
ich other. The mass book was torn out of his
aids and rent to pieces: he felt the flame' on his
ody, which'soon caught' him by t'he neck. At
rst he cried aloud; but he now closed his mouth
y an involuntary motion, was thrown down, and
rolled towards the people assembled' in the
church, who also sunk upon the ground, and were
as out of the door of the church-(Toutes les
ersonnes 'rassemblees dans l'eelise avoient ete
errasiees et jetees ainsi hours la porte) As soon
s he came to himself, he returned into the
church, where he found the clergyman of Mous-
ers quite senseless. He immediatelycalled to
is assistance some persons who were only slight-
Swounded : they lifted up the clergyman, ex-
nguishcd his upper garments, which wereburn-
ig, and' by means of vinegar restored him to his
enses in two hours. lie vomited a considerable
u: atity of blood. He affirmed that lie had not
heard the thunder, and indeed knew nothing of
hat had passed. He was carried to the parson-
ge house. The electric fluid had struck'the
pper part 'of the gold trimming of his stole;
'hence it descended, tore off one of his shoes,
whichh 'it threw to the other end 4-f the church,
nd broke five metal buckle. The chair on which
e sate was also broken to pieces.
On the second day after the event, the cler-
yman was conveyed to his own house at Mous-
Lers, where it was two months before his wounds
'ere perfectly healed. He had a wound, some
fingers broad, on the right shoulder, another ex-
ended from the middleof the back,part of the
ight upper arm, to the middle of the exterior
ide of the lower arm ; a third deep wound wen:
-m the middle of thebackpart of the left upper
rm, to the middle of the back part ofthe lower
rm on the same side; a fourth, less considera-
le and shallower, was on the outer side of the
power part ofthe left shoulder; and a fifth, on the,
pper lip, near the nose. He was tormented for
early two mouths by a total deprivation of sleep;
he felt his arms lamed, and, since that time, al-
ways suffers by the changes of the weather.,
A little child was torn out of its mother's arms,
nnd thrown to the distance of six paces ; it re-
overed in the open air. The legs of every indi-
idual felt lamed ; the terrified women presented
dismal spectacle. The church was filled with
thick black smoke, so that objects could only
be distinguished by the glare of the flames pro-.
ceeding from the clothes which the lightning had

William Pool and two other c.amireh l.'ely de-
serted from the Boston brig \V.shston, C'apiain
Dolivar, onher arrival at Pi,:hmonrd iHi Virginia.
On comnplaint of the captain of the vessel, Jo-
seph Mayo, Esq. a magistrate of that city, com-
mitted the seamen to jail under an act of Con-
gress. They were then brought up beforeJudge
Brackenbrough, upon a writ of habeas corpus.
Mr. Scott aid Mr. Riddle, the counsel for the
seamen, claimed their discharge upon the ground,
1. That the magistrate acted judicially in committing.
2. That, acting judicially, the m'nagistrate of a state has,
no rigInht to execute the law of the United States.
3. That, whether acting judicially or ministerially, the
laws of Virginia have declared the incapacity of the
magistrate to perform any function or duty appertain-
ing" to any office, place, or appointment, under the
authority of the United States.
The judge determined to adjourn the case to
the general court, it being of novelty and impor-
tance, and in the mean time admitted the sea-
men to bail.
This case at Richmond brings into. question
the power of a Virginia magistrate to enforce
a law of the United States. The point has been
elsewhere agitated, and is, therefore, not entirely
a new affair. But the consequences to which it
leads are somewhat curious and pernicious, and
perhaps not generally adverted to. There is no "
doubt that the law, which relates to the service
of seamen, is the law of Virginia. There is no
hacknied doubt of constitutionality. It is merely
a question whether that state will permit ker jts-
tic's of the peace to act under a law of the Uni-
ted States. A refusal to do so leaves the law al.
most a nullity, for the United States have no ju-
dicial officers of the description of justices of the
peace; and if the judges of the Supreme and.
District Courts may be supposed to have the
powers of ordinary justices of the peace, they are
so few in number, that, nine times in ten, the ad-
ministration of justice would fail for .the want of
officers to officiate in the incident stages of pro*

that, as a niatter of. course, the Virginia magis-
tracy were bound to enforce it ; or that, at any
rate, they might do so much for the sake of cour-
The reason assigned for this course of con-
duct is, that the state and general governments
may be kept more distinct from each other, and
the state be thereby the better secured from an
apprehended contamination. But mark the op-
posite probable consequences.
i'he undoubted and constitutional laws of the
'United States must be enforced. The Virginia
magistracy are prohibited from enforcing them.
The United States, therefore, will be driven to
the necessity of appointing justices of the peace
of their own within the state. Here, then, are
new and numerous ,channels of influence. pos-
sessed by the general government, tending to de-,
fe t :hec very object for which the RichmoAl po-
li:iu,:ns say they are laboring.
Again : The people, who are quite as much
interested in the preservation of the general gov-
ernment as they are in that of any state, seeing
that there is no end to petty cavils about state
rights and state authority, will incline more and
more to the general government; they will aban-
don the querulous politicians who make a formal
question of every small affair, and they will take
refuge under that national-authority which is
comparatively steady, mild, and tranquil.
These dangers to state rights are not ideal;
and, in our opinion, it is highly impolitic to be
making questions on every trifling occasion, and
without urgent necessity. We recommend our
Virginia friends to a re-perusal of the fable of the
shepherd boy, who cried Wolf! so often that no.
body would at length mind him.
