JefferSon was opposed te thtt,pxistenee
of any power to shspend, the great writ
of liberty, at any time,, and thought the,
titans° relating to its suspension ri , grave
blemish in our Constitution, which ought
to be annulled by imeadirient. Ile wrote
to Madison from NHS, Ju1y31,,1178 : ,
"Why suspend the haireas tteents in jn

suspension. They have been eithet real
treason, where the parties might as well
have been charged at oboe, or shale pieta
where it was shameful that they should
ever have been suspected.„
Jefferson advised, however, that. the
Coostitution should be adopted as . it
stood, and immediately amended by sub
joining what he called a " declaration of
rights;" which was in fact done. In a
letter to Donald he says , ,
"•By a declaration of rights, I mean
erne which stipulates freedom, of religion,
freedom of the press, freedom of com
merce against monopolies, trials by jury ,
in all eases, NO suspension of the habeas
corpus, no standing armies. These are
fetters against doing evil which no hon
est government should decline.' •
Jefferson's ideas were not fully carried
out, in all respects, in the :amended ara
of the Constitution; thoughlt, may (fairly
be questioned whether the habeas • corpus

" A Bill to suspend the Writ of Habeas

our boys would vote for Woodward if
they could get a chance. They do hate
Andy Curtiu with all their might. The
,other day an abolition tract man brought
oCurtin's picture to our tamp and gave co
pies out for nothing. Somebody stuck
one up on a tree, and wrote 4 The Soldier's
Friend' over it. Yes' said one man,
'my leg tells how much of a friend he is.
I haven't walked right shine I got the
rheumatism under one his rotten blank
ets.' Another said: 'l've had the ague
ever since the rain washed the shoddy un
iform that be gave me off my back.' An
other told otshoes.with paste-board soles
which he had got from the soldiers's
friend.' Altogether, you never heard a
rogue , get such a good round scoring as
Curtin did, and I wish that he and all his
contractors could have heard it. The
boys then amused themselves throwing
tobacco-quids' at the picture, and, before
we were done, Andy's tree was changed
into the popular color of his favorite
gem. I wish we could get home to vote,
but they nobody 'but 'eboUtionisto
