Alien, Mayor of tho city of JJurlington,
being present, and assisting will, cm or

unonbcinir called unnn fr !.,,. i
produced a printed form or order iu the
a i ui,Mu j
words following, as near as your niemor
ialiat can recollect :
"To Beuajah Deacon, Esq,, Marshal
&o. You aro hereby commanded to ar'
rest James W. Wall, of the city of Bur
lingiou, and convoy him to Fort Lafayette,
iu the JS'ew York harbor, forthwith." By
order of the Secretary of War. Dated
W ashingtuii. S- pt. 1601.
L'pou reading tins m.ist singular doeu
incut, yo'fr nit morialUt domauded of the
Marshal tlw nature and causo of the ac
filiation against him, and a copy ' of the
affidavit or affirmation upon which such
warrant was based. lie took occasion at
the same time to deny the right of any
member of tho Piosident's Cabinet to is
sue any such warrant, much less tho Sec
retary of War, aud warned tho Marshal
that he would hold the Secretary responsi
ble, and all who presumed to act under
his authority; that ibis official had iu this
overstepped the limits of his official author
ity, aud having usurped powers not dele
gated to him by tho Constitution, or by
some law made in pur&uauco tliereof, he
had put himself beyond the palo of thu
proUctioa of his office, and was liable liki
any private citizeu, with this distinction
that having used his official position to
unci i o .n ss min-tioe ami onnri-jsinn
it wan a
' at aggravation ol" his iiuilt, aud
wouid ft- considered so iu a criminal pros
ecutiou, or in asking for excnip.ary damn
ges iu a civil action.
To this pretest and warning of your
memorialist, the Marshal made tho fol-
lowing most extraordinary reply : "That
ho kuew nothing of the cau.o and nature
of tho accusations, or of any affidavit or
affirmation upon which the wa rani was
Uaseil ; that he had received tho ordur
through the post office, and was bouud to
execute it at all hazards, aud if any re
sistance was made, wo would resort to the
armed forco then surrounding the house."
Upon our memorialist requesting time
for preparation, and to have an interview
j with his family, it was poreiuptorily ro-
lused by the Marshal, who further declar
ed " tint he hurl ouleis to luhe yuur mim
ori.dtsl ut once to Acts York vi'ihc Cum
den and Jiml'Hj li, e, tvhich uould past
lf'rouS(l Hinhugton in the course oj ten

Agaiust such an arbitrary exercise of
i. i puwoi as mis, never surpassoii Dy tlio most
t fcuoseiuent niiuicn oi tho vilest tle.-potism
in I'surope, your memorialist entered his
most solemn protest, and prepared to ro-j
sist such invasion of his rights by physical!
force. Bcsistance, however, proved in I
vain, and your memorialist having sue-j
ceeded iu reading the hall of his house, i
was thero overpowered by a largo armed ,
fore:, torn from tho midst of his family I

may, under the authority of one of these
general warrants, invado your Stato with
an armed force, kidnap any ofyour citizens
and imuiuro them beyond tho limits of tho
