enlitnitled hy him to the 1'iesideiit, on
the powers of the Kxeentifa to enforoe
tho Jaws in nr.y SI t!o wliieli may secede

"Within their respective spheres of ae -

UH.ept 'lutein ami supiemu uui eaeu 1 ui-

succession, or to dissolve the family rcla-
tions existing in nny State, the act wotthl
bo simply void ; but not more void than
would be a State law to prevent Uip 10
capturo of fugitives from labor, to forbid
tlio carrying of the mailp, or to stop the
collection of duties on imports. Tho will
of a Stale, whether expressed in its Con
stitution or laws, cannd, whilo it temains
in tho Confederacy, absolve her people
from tho duty ol obeing tlm just nnd
constitutional rojuiremcnt3 of the Cen
tral (iovenimcnt. Sor can any act of the
Central Government displace tlie jurisdic
tion of a State, because the laws of the
United Slates are Supremo and landing
only so far as they arc passed in pursu
ance of the Constitution. I do not 8y
what might be ellected by mcro revolu
tionary force. I am speaking of legal and
"This h !ho view n I ways taken ly tlio
Judiciary. Tho Supreme Court of the
United Stales has declared it in many ca
ses. I need only refer you to Iho United
States vs Booth, w here the present Chief
Justice, expressing the unanimous opin
ion of himself and all hu brethern, enun
ciated tho doctrine in (emu so clear and
full that any further demonstration of it
ctn scarcely be required.
The d.dy which these principles devovlve
1 not only upon every oflicrr, b(it every cit
izen, is that hidi Mr. Je'.Ierson express
ed to compendiously in his first inaugural,
namely : "lo support the Slato govern
ments in all their rights, a the most com
petent administrations for their domestic
eoiiecnis, nnd the surc-tbulivrk against
anti-repnbiicnii tendencies," combined
with the preservation of the ieneral Gov
ernment, in its whole constitutional vi;;or,
as tho sheet nnchor of our peace at home
and safety abroad."
lie reviews, briefly, the power conferred
on tho Executive, for the execution of the
latvs moro particularly with reference to
tho collection ol revenue, and holds that
tho President may, if nee-sary, order tin
duties to be collected 011 board a vessel in
side of any cstabli.dieJ pert of entry;
nnd, further, that his right to tako such
measures tut may bo necessary for tho pro
tection of tho public property, is very
c!car. lie proceeds
'I come now to tho point in your hit
ler which is probably of the -rrealert prac
tical importance. vy the ttct of IS117 you
may employ such parts of tho land and
naval forces as you shall judge necessary
for the purpose of causing the law to be

thereof obstructed in any Stateby
combinations too powerful to bo supprcsed
by tho the ordinary course ofjudicitd pro

dent the solo responsibility of deciding
whether the exigency has arisen which
requires the use ol military forco ; and in

" f ono of the States should declaro her
indept'inlenci'', your action cannot depend
upon the rightfulness of the cause upon
which rueh ft declaration is based. Whcth
er Ih' retireaient of a State from the
Union bo tho exerci.se of aright reserved
in tlio CotistitHtin, or a revolutionary
movement, 11, is certain mai yuu jiuu ni
in either case the authcrity to recognise
her independence or to absolve licr from
her Fodcial obligations. Congress or the
other Slates in convention assembled
must take tuch measures as may bo neces
sary and proper. Jn such an event, I sets
no eourso for you but to go straight on
ward in the path you have hitherto trod
den that is, execute the laws to tho exi
tent of tho defensive moans placed iu
your hands, and act generally upon Iho
assumption that tho present Constitution
al relations IxUwecn the States and thu
Federal Government continue to exist un
til a now order of things smll bo estab
lished, either by law or force,
"Whether Congress hns tho constitu
tional riht to make war ngain.-t one or
more Stale, and retjuiro the Executive of
the Federal Government to carry it on
by means of force to bo drawn from the
other States, is a ineslion for Congress it
sulfto consider. It must bo admitted
that no such power is expressly given ;
nnrare there any words in tho Constilu
t'on which imply it. Among the poT?rs
enumerated 111 articla I, section 8, is that
'to declare war, grant letters of marpie
ami reprisal, and to make rules concern
ing captures on land and water." This
certainly mcar.s nothirg moro than the
po'.vcr to commence and carry on hostili
ties against tho foreign enemies of the na
tion. Another clause in the same section
gives Congress the power 'to provido for
calling forth the militia,' and to use them
within the limits of Ihe State. Hut this
power U so resit ietcd by the words wliTch
immediately follow that it can bo exorci
sed only for one of the following purposes:
1. To execute tho laws of Ihe Union ; that
is, to aid the Federal officers in the per-
inrmnpen ol tPeir regular duties. '2. lo
.upprofj .nsurrcclions against tho State ;
tit this i-i confined by Arliole IV., Sec
tion 1, to cases in which tho 'State, her
self shall apply for assistance ng.rinst her
own people. 3. To repel tho invasion of
a. Slate by enemies who come from abroad
to assnil her in her own territory. All
thesa provhions arc mado to protect the
Slate;, not to nulhoriza tin attaeic by
one part of t lie country upon another; to
pruterve t'K'ir peace, and not to plunge
them into civil wsr.
The right of tho General Government
to preserve itself in its w hole constitution
til vigor by repelling a direct and positive
aggiession upon its properly or its officers
cannot he denied. But this is a totally
ditl'iient tiling from an offensive war to
punish the people for the political mis
deeds of their State Government, or to
rev-cut a threatened violation of the
Constitution, or to en forco an acknowl
edgement that the Government of (he
United States is Supreme. Tho States
are colleagues of one nrio'.hcr, nnd if
some of them shall conquer the rest and
hold them ns miljugutcd provinces, it
would totally destroy tho wholo theory
upon which they are now connected.
