Wp hrve rcufoo to 11!Ink that our Know Noth
ing nHgrbors understand the game of brag os
well &b any other political party we have ever
had among*’ us. During tbo canvas in Virgioia,
:r. the mouth of May last, the whole oouutry tv as
that Wise would bo beaten by from ten
to twenty thousand; anti the predio'ion was re
presented as ndr-xuoro prediction, but as &□ as
certained fact. All know the result. Wise’s
majority wac nearly eleven thousand, la Texas, was s'aid to bo a suro tkiog that the K.
N.’s would sweep the State by an overwhelming
m»joriiy. It whs knoicn to bo so, and could not
fail The result was as in Virginia—& glorious
triumph for the democricy. But a few weeks
agi wo were told that Chafe’s majority 1q Ohio
would be forty thousand. Hardly any one now
gopj vjea that there U a possibility of his elec
tion ot all. Many other cases, both north and
eoutb, oould be named where their predictions
or boasts hove utterly failed; and wo derive
from them this conclusion : They are either in
the habit oj misr contenting their real itrength, or
else they do not know what if is.
Take this county for instance : We have beard
estimates of the number of their votes, varying
all the way from fifty-five hundred to eight thou
sand. Somo say that they will poll *even thou
sand; some, five thousand votes; othors, six
thousand, and one pred’etiou is that they will
bo defeated this fall. We have heard these dif
ferent estimates honestly made, ond which shall
wo believe? We can at ! east believe that the
strength of their vote is unknown to themselves,
and is as uooertain as that cf any other party.
That party has no longer the charm of novelty.
That attraction is gone. It has no longer the
prestige of success. It h&s mot with repeated
defeats in all parts of the oouotry, this year.
It has to longor a natioral character. The
whole scu'h. Is lost to them. It has no looger
the hope of stability and permanency. The soal
of eccresy is to be removed, and then it becomes
an open, mere northern or sectional party, split
intojtwo or three factions, as in already the onso
in New York, Ohio aud Maesechusetlj ; and
will bo tbo case next year in PeDnaylaania.
We have then do cause lo bo alarmed at their
confident predictions of auco°ss in this coud't
next moDth. They hare no late victories to
paint to as evidence cf anything hut their waning
strength. They have no fatore to Inspire them
with hope and 10a! They have no fixed
principles open which they can continue to raily
They havo given the people no evidence of that
purity of purpose which they once profecSfd.
“ Office c» ks the man’ was cue of their mottoes.
Y. t in this county ever eighty men were seeking
the fourteen efficic I • fi led, and such a oorum.
bio for the loaves and fi-hea was never seen be
fore in the good oil oouoty cf Allegheny; and
one of the Dcmioatjocs, i: is admitted, was tb‘
tftined bv an " irregular i i)" that requires correo

Its orgati:r\tica—upon national grounds r.nd

The Case of Passmore Wil-
lpremk CuCßT —Paismott Wdhamtoil' 1 C<U€.
Opinion of Lowne , J —After the argument of
tin * motion for a habeas oorpus, I wrote an opln-.
ion which I expected to deliver; but, on further
coDbuliation wit* my brethren, and fuller reflec
tion ou the BUbjeot, I became convinced that it
was partly erroneous. This prevented m© from
delivering toy vio fb when the ceae was deoided,
aud I do it now, avoiding as much as possible
any unnecessary repetition of what has already
bceu said by others.
I have cut bean able to doubt that this Court
is, In many oases, bound to exeroiao itsjadgment
as to t.u propriety of granting the writ before
allowing it to issue Notwithstanding the words
of toe uct whicQ impose a penalty for refusing
the writ, we are tnt forbidden tj interpret tho
law ; und iue neoe«-s»ty of presenting a potiticn
io t fio Court or to a Judge thereof, of. stating
therein whether the prisoner was detained on
oriminal or oq oivil preocss, or neither, of pro
ducing the warrant of oommittal or accounting
for not doing so, and the fact that traitors and
murderers, and fugitives from thejustioe of oth
er States aro excluded from the benefit of tho
net, and that the writ was not intended for the
relief of convict criminals, (Cro. Car. 168, 1
Balk 84b.) and was ..ot extended to them by our
aot; all taeso m item show plainly enough that
the judge or court ie not eieroiaing a mere min
isterial function in granting the yftlt. On any
other supposition, there is no reason at all for
applying to the oourt, for the prothonotary could
grant it as well.
And no one can examine tbeproviaion of mag
us obarta, the petition of right, 8 Charles 1, the
statute repealing the dtarohamber Court, 2b
Ch 1, c 10 ; tbo habeas oorpus aot of 31 Oh. 1,
and ours of 1785, aud the numerous kindred
statutes, to which that investigation will lead
him, without peroelving that a free and open
court, and a full aud open trial before the supe
rior judges by due coarse of law, have always
been regarded ns the best guaranty of the li or- s
ty of tbo citiieu. He will see, moreover, very
plainly, that the habeas corpus is only a means
by whi h this end lo to bo scoured, so that no
ignorance or tyranny of king, or king’s council
or minister, or of mere local andj Inferior courts,
dependent ou nod governed by looal customs, or
of justices of the peaco sh 11 imprisoo a man
without a chanoe of bail, or a hope of obtaining
a speedy trial by the law of tho land.
Tho habeas oorpus was not intended and
couid not he intended, to anthome the superior
judges, bpir-g substantially those of the higher
courts uf rco -rd, to interfere with tbo jurisdiction
of each other Tbo ; urpose of tho writ was
satisfied when tho jurisdiction of the supe
rior courts attached, for tbo State could out
iniir any better means of iectrriog & fair and
irap;irt':v. trial. If that, with tha ordinary pro
ris-os* fjr the correction of errors, was not rof
fiolent, tbea humanity has only to aokcowl
ojgc i s incapacity to provjJo euliraly ngaiuat
cm*r and injustice. Certainly tbo habeas corpus
was not intended to provide a remedy against Lhe
unjust judgments or sontcooea of the higher
ooarte, and when it is asked f..r, for each a pur
pose, it ought to be refused ; unless, possibly,
when it is asked from a cjurt that may officially
revise and correct the proceedings. 7 Pet 572

Put eTeti if nnT Habeas corpus act of 1 diJ
mean to e«y that (he writ shill alnaye t»c graut
cu woeu prayed for, it oouii not be obeyed so
far a* to confl'ct with the now order of things
introdoord in 1 737 by tho Constitution of the
Cnitcd ritati'fl 11 1 nee originated other and in
depend: ct jurss-i jur-ns, wuh which our habeas
corpus net was act inteD led lo interfere, for
when it was passed it could have no reference to
them. How far it can bo used in pamljring
those jurisdictions, or subjootieg them to those of
ils Suktco, is proper matter lo be decided on the
pteseniahon of the pennon, or on the return of
the writ, as the court may think proper. We
saw such difficulties as led ue to hoar an arau
tcpot from the petitioner’s counsel on tho pre
sentation of the petition, and still our difficul
ties have n.-t been removed.
Hut I have a v-ry string impression, that no
c-urt ;• jusrifleJ in is.-uing a habeas corpus for
(nr f urpx-sse . f n stoimg a slaTp to Lis master ;
aod that is v.ry plainly the purposo for Wbioh’
the writ wk ii.-.uod out of the Distrio: Court.- J
do not thihk that our writ has any suoh purpose,
or ever ha 1 It was intended to seeuro the lib
er’, j of the su l j au l not to try rights of pro
perty. Uis bouii*times used to obtain the cus
tod; of chiidrcc ; but then it proceeds upeo the
itolplu that oUldrcn »re restrained of their lib
erty who arc n a oust »dy that ia disapproved of
hy their lawful guardians. Arrived at years of
dtserttion. the writ is not used to retain them in
an unwilling bul jccticn. It is not usually aliow

Tr,o common law of Ki gUnJ, as it was when
PcPns)lT , ii*.a was settled, .ould ujt have allow
ed u hbbeafi corpus for tho purposo of enforcing
slavery, for it did not rcoogniio suob an lostitu
h«u Tho common law remedy, for tiyitg the
title to & feud .l villem, was tho writ rf* homing
repUyxatido, and Lh&t was tho writ used by n 3 in
slave caeca; 2 T>a 11., 66 ; S Dina., 101; 3 8 &
R, 890 ;7 11 , 299. And this application of the
;abeos oof pus is to my mind Bcrioasly slanting.
I bare, moreover, a very strong impression
that there U do way In which the obsc before tho
Distriot Judge can be regarded, that would en
il *lo tho federal jadioi&ry to tak-- cognizance of
it: bat I will not trouble any one with my re&
sons for this.
Regarding the matter thaa, it seemed to mo
that thore was real merit in the claim that tho
petitioner should be discharged; aod I did not
see any very satisfactory reason in opposition to
our he&riog and deciding the oase; and there
fore 1 was willing to grant tho writ and hear the
other side I was very stroDgly impressed by
the argument that tho District Jndge exooedod
Mb authority in entertaining the oase; and that
tho Supreme ( ourt of the dtato has power, on a
habeas corpus, to disoharge tbo prisoner; espe
cially coi e'drriog that this Court is one of gene
ral Jurisdiction, and a part of a government of
general powers ; whereas, the District Court bo
lon a to a government of limited powers, and
occoesnrily partakes of tho same ohoraoter. But
this proposition involves oonscqnenoes so grave,
in theory at least, and principles so essential to
political utdor, that it ought not to be readily
Wc may first Btt aelJo tho consideration that
the Federal Courts aro of limited jurisdiotion ;
fur even outccaing that they are, it does not
follow that we may review and restrain them in
the ctoroioo of il. To use this as a reason for
treat mg their aots as void, when vre Iblnfc, them
unauthorizad is to apply an English reason to
an Amorioan institution, without any resem
blances soffiolent to make the application legiti
mate. The English superior Courts might have
had very good reasons for treating a'l the un
authorised aots of their inferior tribunals as
void, in ordor to keep them within their proper
limits. Bu we oannot so treat the United
States Courts; for, in the English seneo, they,
to l , are snperior Courts, and espeoially they
are Dot subordinate to üb.
Too proposition then remains that, whenevor
any of the public tribunals of the United States
eio-cd the jurisdiction, vthiob, undor the Con- j
etituticn, can be given to them, ami, in doin'
80, a citiieu is arrested or imprisonod.
oar habeas oorpu-is a proper and , “
remedy. ■ “ ,
If this is 80, then certain' ' effectaal
where the Courtß of tb- ‘ .. ,
hot little power fo- ‘I thOTB are P lao,sB
rested or ime-' - CdUo<l SUUs oan haTO
or Beote- .. any purpose. Any man, nr-
C 0,,. by warrant, or execution,
-ce from District, Oironit, or Supreme
-rt, or either Houso of Congress, may have re
relief from auy friendly countyjndge wielding the
power cf the habeas corpus. A judge tmpeaoh
ed, oonvicted and sentenced, a traitor tried and
condemned, may still havo hopes from tho ha
beas oorpus, if a Judge can be found, ignorant,
or insubordinate or degraded enough to declare
that hie superiors acted without jurUdiolion.
And sinco tho force of the argument uoes not
at ai! depond upon any peouiiar virtue in the
habeas corpus, but simply on ibG supposed want
of jurisdiction in th« foderai tribunals, we may
apply it to all cases. Thou wo may have sum
mary replevins and ejeotmenta, and prohibitions
and lLjunoLions, aod attachments to support
tbom, heard and decided by emgle jadges, or
07to commissioners or justices of the pease,
everywhere and without review, for the purpose
of testing Ibo validity of the judgments of the
United Stales tribunal*, and the constitution
ality of fodoral tax laws and tariffs, and the
frustration of disagreeable laws, beoome per
fectly simple and regular.
&ud &.we should do this io any honest belief
in its political rightness, we should, of course,
be 'willing to have the same principle applied In
reference to our own official system. Then ba
be vs corpus would stand as a writ designed to
set aside all official order, and to plaoe single
jud,ges above the very tribunals, of whloh they
are, members.
1 Do one occasion the laws of th’UfUoited States
we xe attempted io be thus summarily set aside,
&o d to prevent it the force bill, 2 Mar., 1888, s
-7, P. Laws, p. b 4, declared that habeas corpus

very plainly forbids ttfl to discharge him. If, in"
this law, there is any encroachment upon State
rights, it is no more than might have been ex
pected at the time, for the cause of freedom
always suffers from the restrictions tbr.t become
neoessary ia order to suppress disorder, whether
that disorder arises frera mero vice or from an
ovtr zealous urging cf prino ple? and institutions
that are supposod to be goal.
If it be meant that the Supreme Court has a
peculiar authority to interfere La Buch oases, I
have failed to duaoverwboTce it arises. The
habeas oorpus aot makes no uldliuoiioa between
fhe different courts and judges who may oxer
ci«e the powers given,. sod 1 do no f rec how we
oan mako any, except that which i*
involved in the pyiooiplo of subordination
All tho institutioru of the satno government,
however complex, svo intended to be inh&rmcny
with each other, und unltcdley to aid in the pre
servation of order. I', is therefore the duty of
all public officers to avoid, if possible, all con
diet of functions in the execution of their offices,
and to follow the principles that provide fur
this result.. The most obvious of these is, that
00-ordinato TriboDals cannot interfere with each
other, nor inferior with superior ones. Without
this rule, government would be a mob of officials,
wanting an essential element of unity, and would
soon fall to pleoes. Without th : B, habeas
corpus law would set asido all order, by allow
ing the lowost of all ssbordinMejuJgee tv anon!,
ou constitutional grounds, tho judgments of every
oourt in the State, even the very highest , and
suob apparently gross insubordination would bo
a mere error in jadgment, and not an impeacha
ble offenoe
Tho Bupreme Court of the ytate is ia no sense
the offioial superior of any of the Uoltod States
Courts, but co ordinate with them all. We aro
oot set &s checks upon each other, and cannot
Uteeotly review oaoh other’s decisions in any
matter. Each of us ocoupiee a different position
iu our compound sy&tern of government, aod
oaoh uf uo must answer to our official or politi
cal superiors. This Court is not set to watoh
ovor tho Federal Courts and suspect them of ex
-0699 of jurisdiction ; and wo should be ourselves
disorderly, if we should assume any onotrol
over them, set as co ordinate tribunals upoa an
entirely separate foundation. No one will pro
tend that our writ of prohibition would be of
any valuo (hero, and hence it is plain that wo
oannot interfere without disorder
Like most other writs, VVbcsa corpus must be
more efficacious io Ltic hands of a suporior court
than of any subordinate one; Tot tbo lavrof or
der requires that those who are officially oquid
shall not sit in roview of each other's act. The
oases that illustrate this are very numerous ; de
claring that tho BUjerior oourts of Uw t>ud
equity cannot interfero with e&ah other; that
the reguUr oourta cannot interfere with tho Ben
teooea for contempt and breach of privilege, by
the Senate or House of representatives, Houso
of Lords or House of Commons. Where the duty
of final decision, and the whelo,control of any
matter Is given to one set of officers, the interfe
rence of others is mero usurpation Aud here
I may remark that a sentence for contempt is
not eseoalisily diUerent from any other judg
ment, doorce or sentence It is a matter adju
dicated, and it belongs to the very essence of
governmental order that it cjonot be-roviowed,
except by the court that pronounced it, or by its
official superiors; and, therefore, in this in
stanoo, not by os.
It is insisted that this sentence, being in ex
cess cf authority, Is void, and v?c aro nsktd to
Jectare It so. Without stopj log (o notice tho
habitual misapplication of this word void, to all
aota of pubiio authority whioh are made the oub
j sot of an opposing criticism. 1 may e-ty that it
is a plain solecism thus to qualify any net tnat
is bo efficient of results A sentence, by which
i man Is committed to prison and bald there,
cannot bo veld. If we wi hto treat tho subject
profitably, we must speak of it more aconrotely.

The superior *•vurta in may treat nr

be justified by the peculiarities tf their system
aud the fact of their superiority; tat they-con'd
not, with propriety, so treat each other. Their
practice relative to each other uovt. r chained
such an element of UtsorcUr. A parly a irutnon

reason for not doing so. Ue oaoao.l uoat public

Coart lacks jurisdiction, a decoct respect fi r

bat it may be necessary lu order to tha an
nathorized process Judges cannot keep all the
law in their minds, and parties are heard in
order that they may insist upon every principle
that is in their favor. It woo'd bo very disor
derly for defendants to bold back aa objection
to tho jurisdiction of the Court, and then raise
It by rebellion against tho public authorities
when tho writ of the Commonwealth comes to
be executed ; and habeas corpus would bo n most
aisorderly writ, if it coaid be thus used iu oon
tempt of authority.
Government consists of fallible men, who do
not always know their duty; and parties may
lose some of their rghts, if th*y Jo net aid the
poblio officers, by notifying them of thrir views,
and urging toem; and questions of jurisdiction
are very often ap diffioult to decido as any othor.
It is an essential element of government-that It
must be the jndge of its own jarlFdlotion; i
do not know that this rule is peonlijvfy applioa
ble to tbo higher oaurts. Tae lowest mast ftot
upon it, stibjeot to the higher sooial law that is
Involved In offioiat subordination. Often tho
question may be erroneonsly decided. Often
suoh dedeioßS may result in groat injury to the

because it Is human; and a man of well-trained
mind will think it ntr great hardship to anbmit
to authority even in error, irntb© name of or
der, the oountry domoude, and. has & right to
demand it. i
It Is usual to say, even of foreign judgments, i
that, if pronoQOoed by a competent tribunal and ,
carried into effeot without our assistance,- they
aro conclusive of tho question decidod. And

Plates is a foreign oonntry, but Us Courts belong
la a different system from the State Courts, ana
thus tbeße respective authorities are, as author
ities, foreign to oaoh other. Each must respond
to its own superiors ; neither dan nail the other
officially to aooount. I speak nei here of the
aotion for damages for exoess of authority.
True enough, vre do thus leave the Federal gov*
eminent at liberty to make continual encroach
ments upon State rights, without bemg reepon
stble thorefor to any organized power ; but this
cannot be avoided. There can be no organized
authority superior to government itself. How
ever we may define ita fnnotions, itself most in
terpret them, enbjeot only to the right of the
people to give new instructions. It rnnkt bo so
with every government. Manufacture and ro

In civil matters there can be no inoraiprinciple
of higher importance than the one that is most
deeply involved in tbisoase, the principle of so
