to suspend tho ordinary process of law, in
times of public danger. If that tribunal
shall decide as there is littlo reason to
doubt it will that nn executive offieor has
no such authority unless it bo conferred
by an act of Congress, the way will bo
open lor a multitude ol similar suits.
Every officer who has caused arrests and
imprisonments of tho character alluded to
will be liable in damages for false impris-
onmcnt, and also to a penal indictment for
assault and battery, in as many separate
suits as ho may havo causod scparato ar
rests. Each caso will have to be tried on
its merits, inasmuch .13 the amount of
damages and tho severity of the penalty
must depend on tho amount of loss and
suffering, and on tho circumstances of
aggravation or extenuation peculiar to
each instanco of illegal incarceration.
While wo entertain no doubt that tho
arrests in question were unconstitutional,
wo believe that somo of those violations
of that Constitution wcro moro than jus
tifiable, that they wcro demanded by
high considerations of public duty. In
times of iuiniiucnt danger, a public officer
must some'times incur personal risk in or
der to promote tho public safety. Ho is
no patriot if ho will not consent to peril
his property or his life, or, what is often
dearer than both, his reputation and pop
ularity, if ho is clearly of opinion that tho
safety of the country requires tho sacri
fice. But in all such proceedings tho
majesty of tho law must not bo affronted
bya weak and false pretense that its pen
allies arc suspended and that it no longer
tn force. Tho transercssiiifr officers mujt
stand ready to suffer liko men, and not,
in a selfish desiro to screen themselves 1
from penalties, deprive innocence of its

themselves liable, in tho fact that every suit
must be tried by au impartial jury of their
countrymen. If, iu particular cases, they
are able to show,iby competent evidence,
that the imprisonment was a wise measure
of precaution for tho publio safety, tho
jury will award to the plaintiff ouly nom
inal damages. If evert caso of illegal ar
rest aud detention should prove to bo of
this description, thoy will not suffer much
cither 'in property or reputation. But if
there bo cases whore, ou insufficient
