To Robert UIDsac Eauire, late Police Moaitrate.
Bin,
We, the undersigned freeholders and other inhabitants
of the Iland of New Providnce, feel ourselves impera-
tively called on in the moat public and decided manner,
to exprem our dimpprobation of the unconstitutional and
oppreive conduct exercised by Ilia Excellency Sir James
Canichael Smyth, Bart. tuwards you, in dismising you a
second time from the office of Police, or sitting Magis-
trate of this colony and to declare that we can view this
act is no other light, than as a daring attempt upon the
part of the Goveror, to at up his arbitrary will as supe-
rir to the law of"he land,
While thu expresing our mene of the Governor's
conduct, we at the mae time avail ourselves of this op-
portunity of publicly being testimony to the zeal and
activity which you have always evinced in the discharge of
th several duties of your oice, and to the effective state
which, under your muperinrtadence, the Police of this town
hs been beougl- onlygrouid for dbatisfction, upon
ear parts, being, as we now openly sate to you, the circum-
tance of your having eva etbmirted the proceedings of
an court, over which ye presided as Police Magistrte,
to lis Excellney's revil.
In concuion, we beg leave to amre you, that we shall
ever be ready, one and all, to aid and aiast you in '',tain-
ing redire against the despot, of whose vindictive pasions
you have now a second time been the victim.

To which Mr. DucmeM, made the fotowing reply :-

Your approbation of my condort while acting as Police
Magistrat, has excited my warmest gratitude, and I beg
Ieave to return my sin ret thanks for the gratifying
lsiaomial with which you have honoured me. To the
leas period of my life, I shall endeavour to deserve your
aswem, and shall never cease to remember but with grate-
ful feeling, how much I ant indebted to a kind and ge-
nerom public, for their friendly and disinterested offer of
assistance.
I have the honour to be,

must have forgotten, that that master is a juit,,
otic, and beneficent monarch, who daily evince tfa
rest regard for the rights of his subjects, and s|
oudest desire appears to be,to reign in the hearts f
people. All this, Sir James Carmichael Snitlh natn h
gotten, or lie never could have proceeded on, in
headlong career of misrule in which he has proceeadie,
ve put the clinax to that career by such an unlauir g
ct of injustice, a the dismissal of a Judge, (for the Pdh

Having been, therefore, left in the dark by His Etel

was tried, does not authorize transportation. To ei,

aw, is entitled to the profoundest respect, yet dlat q|
nay err. Even admitting, however, in this inslae,

ALanin, il has been asserted that the Governnr chalg
Mr. I)Dncome, with want of vigilance in his office. To
such a charge, the testimony of nine-tenths of the comE-
nity will give a flat contradiction. Never have we bads
Police Magistrate who more rigidly attended to the duti
of iis office, and never have we had a Police in the ea
cellent stalt in which our Police at this moment is.
T'e publication of the Governor's letter, with rems
to the pardlon of Mary Ilughes, has been alleged ass m
other reason for the dismissal of Mr. Duncome; but cas i
be asserted in a British colony, that a document like te
one in question, conveying from the executive to a Judi,
the reasons why a sentence passed by a court in which
that Judge presided, had been commuted, is a dorumet
which the public have nut a right to me, and that the
Judge for giving publicity thereto deservedly fourfits hi
office !!! H ad the Governor chosen to exercise his pm
tended prerogative without assigning a reason forso doing,
he might have done so ; but having thought proper, in a
official letter to the Police Magistrate, to state reason,
(and rRI I,,., too, ahich deeply affected the rights of o
slave ols ,irr), for commulting the punishment of the a(-
fender, it became, I conceive, the duty of that officer t

The frneoing arret hl causes which, as I before statd,

Truth tells a different tale. Personal vindictive feeling ba

sated in an office from which His Excellenry lad removed
him; or if he was so be as to feel, that he should be a
impolitic as to give vent to them. Those, however, who
have daily opportunities of appreciation his character, wil
readily rive him credit for being endowne with the muer
vindictive passions, and are alike aware, that when Ithe
passions obtain an waendency in his breast, no conmider-
lion of the consequences, wil prevent his rushing on to the

It can tunake but little matter of difference, whether the
Slave Caurts were held in that "very comeudiuns building
is which our other Courts are helld ;" but I presumne all
pesos in commission of the peace, use tlhe Police runers,
rcotstables, identifying thereby the Police Court with
Ibeir own: in fact, McQuinty is exactly in the same Inan-
ir "ideaatified itll his devils, as the Police Magistrate is
with the S!ave Court, and its proceedings. Being a sit-
iag; Mlagitraic, lie will be always called upon, before any
blcr;;,' lie can Lis Adyb be found withoutfai. I say a Slave
Court isi "judicial regulation," at which tli Police M1a-
gr.aae has always pirebided ; Police runner have always
iao emoplojed as ugenls in the subordinate departmenits,
al therifiore is, toall intents aad puiposes, a Pl'olice Court.
The Dictor says, that our laws lave ntu provided a
Council of Pruluction. I refer bim to the :ixteentli clause
d the consolidated slave law, wherein lihe will find that a
Council of Protectiou bas been named, and that it is coani-
pad uof the Justices and vestry of the parish, in which
St awner resides. Mreovur, the sainae law sais not a
wrd a out couinanutations of the setM'ences of a ISlase
Court, by the Governor ; and in its dtirty-fil'in clause, it
enacts that in cases of free persons Iwaing convicted iof
lartearing slaves or aiding their running away, that thel
Govenmor, by awl ,eithk co rat of kas Council, slhall con-

point out how, one or the other are inferred by trasspor-
tation I Dr. Johnson describes To limb," as to tear
asunder, to divide," and I cannot see how Mary Hughes
was to be divided for transportation, or whether her great
bulk would make such mutilation necessary! Under our
present Slave Law, mutilation is, under no circumstance,
allowed ; therefore, as such part of our law is a deadletter,
the word limb stands as an intruder, who can account for
his appearance only from the circutstance of long right
of occupancy ; and can under no circumstance he applied,
unless under indictment founded upon some of the statutes
of Ilunry the eighth, for High Treuaon.
