ATTORNEY-GENERAL BLACK I
ON THE TOWERO? THE PHESIDEXT,
J.N (JASE Vb SlX'lSION.
W'n find in the CviistilutioH of Saturday
the oninion of Attorney General Plncl-.
iubinitled by bim to the President, on
the powers of tho Exeenliva to enforco
the laws in any St ito which may sccedo
from tho Union, lie eny:
"Within their respectivo spheres of ac
tion, tho Federal Government and tho
Government of a State, nre both of them
independent and supiemo but each is ut
terly powerless beyond tho limits assign
ed to it bv tho Constitution. If Congress
would attempt to change the law of de
scents, to mako a new rule of personal
succession, or to dissolvo the family relu-
tions existing in any .Stale, the act would ,
bo simply void ; but not more void than
would bo a State law to preveut tho ro
capture of fugitives from labor, to forbid
the carrying of tho mails, or to slop tho
collection of duties on imports. Tho will
of a Slalo, whether expressed in its Con-
stitution or laws, cnnncl, while it remains
in the Confederacy, absolvo her people
from tho duty of obeying the just and
constitutional requirement of the Cen
tral Government. or can any act of the
Central Government displace the jurisdic
tion of a Stale, beeauso tho laws of the
United Slates are Supremo and binding
only so far as they are. passed in pursu
ance of the Constitution. I do not s y
what might bo effected by moro rcvolu
tionary force. I am speaking of legal and
"This is tho view always taken by the
Judiciary. Tho Supreme Court of the
United States has declared it in many ca
.3cs. I need only refer you to tho United
States vs Uo0th, whero the present Chief
.lustieis. expressing the unanimous opin
ion of himself and nil l.is brethern, enun
ciated the doclrino in terms so clear and
full that any further demonstration of it
crn scarcely bo required.
The duty which these principles devovlve
not only upon every oftker, Ltit every cit
izen, ii that nhicli Mr. Jell'erson express
ed so compendiously in his first inaugural,
namely : "to support tho Stato govern
ments in all their t ights, a; tho most com
petent administrations for their domestic
concent?, nnd the surost bulwarks against
anti-reiuibikau tendencies," combined
with tho preservation of the General Gov
eminent, in its whole constitutional viycr,
as tho fclioet anchor of our peace at home
and safety abroad."
He reviews, briefly, the power conferred
on tho Executive, for theexeculion of the
laws more particularly with referenco to
the collection ot revenue, and holds that
tho President may, if nccssary, order the
duties to bo collcctod on board a vessel in
side of any established pert of entry;
and, further, that his right to tako such
measures a may bo necessary for tho pro
tection of tho public properly, U very
clear. He proceeds
"I conic now to tho point in your let
ter which is probably of the greatest prac
tical importance. Py the act of ISO" you
may employ such parts of the land and
naval forces as you shall judge necessary
for iho purposo of causing the law to be
duly executed, in all easos whero it is law
ful to use tho militia for tho samo pur
pose. By the act of I'M iho militia may
bo ca'led forth 'whenever tho laws of t lie
United States shall bo opposed or tho ex-,
ecu t ion thereof obstructed in any Statoby
comliujttions too powerful to be auppresed
by tho the ordinary coune ol judicial pro
ceedings, or by the power rested in the
marshals.' This imposes upon tho rrcM-
dont the solo responsibility of deciding
whether the exigency has arisen whic h
requires the use ol military forco ; and in
proportion to the magnitude of that res-
ponsibilily will be his e4iro not to over,
step tho limits of his legal nnd just nu
. "Tho laws refcircd to in tho act of IT'Jj

bo-mo influence. nd rcu their
places? Of coiirso tho first step would bo
to appoint otlioin in their stead, if others

event, it is tnoro limn probablo thnt greHt

nl.e there fore, oblijied to consider what
can bovlono in case wo havo no Courts to
issuo.judicial jirocess, nnd no ministerial
officers . to execute it. In that event
tronps would certainly be out of place,
m iiei,. use wholly illegal."
"It one. of tho States f-liould declure her
independence, your action cannot depend
upon tho rightfulness of the cause upon
which such a declaration is based. Wheth
er the retirement of a Stato from the
Union bo tho exorcise of a right reserved
in tho Constitution, or a revolutionary
movement, it is certain that you have not
in either caso tho nythcrity to recognise
her independence or to absolve her from
her l'edeial obligations. Congress or the
other Stales in convention assembled
must take tuch mea'-ures as may be necos
snry and proper. In such an event, I see
no course for you but to go straight on
ward in the path you havo hitherto trod
den that is, execute tha laws to tho ex
tent of the defeus'.vo meuns placed in
your hands, and not generally upon the
assumption that tho present Constitution
al relations between the Stales and the
Federal Government continue to exist un
til a now order of things sn.ill be estab
lished, either by law or force.
"Whether Congress has tho constitu
tional right to make war against ono or
more States," and require tho Executive of
the Federal Govcrniue:it to carry it on
by means of forco to bo drawn from tho
other States, is a question for Congress iU
solflo consider. It must bo admitted
that no such power is expressly given ;
nor are there any words in tho Constitu-
t'on which imply it. Among tho powjrs
enumerated in article I.jcction 8, is that
'to declare war, grant letters of marque
nnd reprisal, and to make rule! concjrn-
ing captures on hud and water." This
certainly nifar.s nothing moro than the
power to commence and carry on hostili
lies against tho foreign enemies of tho na
lion. Another clan:o in the same section
gives Congress tho power 'to provido for
calling forth tho militia,' and to uso them
within tho limits of Iho Slato. hut Inis
power ii so ristiicted by the words which
immediately follow that it can be exorci
sed only for oun of the following purposes:
1. To execute the laws of the Union ; that
is, to aid tho Federal officers in the per
formance of their regular duties. 2. To
suppress insurrections against Iho Stale j
but this ii con fi nod by Article IV., Sec
tion 4, to cases in which tho Stale, her
self shall apply for assistance against hor
own people. 3. To repel the invasion of
a State by enemies t-ho come from abroad
to assail her in her own territory. All
these provisions arc made to protect the
Slates, not to authorize Mi attacis by
ono part of the country upon another ; to
proKcrve their peace, and not to plunge
them inlo Civil war.
The right of tho Genoval Government
to preserve itself in its whole constitution
al vigor by repelling a dinjet and positive
aggiession upon its properly or its officers
cannot be denied. Put this is a totally
chlTireiit thing from an offensive war to
punish tho people for tho political mis
deeds of their .State Government, or to
Vroventu threatened violation of the
Constitution, or to enforco an acknowl
edgement that the Government of the
United Stales is Supreme. Tho Slates
aro colleagues of ono another, nnd if
sonio of them shall conquer the rcf t and
hold them as subjugated provinces, it
would lol.dly destroy Ihe whole theory
upon which they nro now connected.
