From the Y. Y. Hoenisg Post
The Law of God and the Law Of
DI an.
The late Daniel .11 . 0bster refused to
legislate apinst . slaTery ;n New Mexico.
because, as he raid, he did not wish t : , re•
enact a law of
.; Cr.itt. The physical fea.
tures of the country, apeording to his as.
sumption. were . an eternal ordinance
*against. slavery, and. there was nu need,
in that case, of human legislation. As
well enact that water should nut run up
bill, or that the earth. should turn from
east to west,.as to pass laws in order to
repulse slavery from such asuil and climate
as the soil and climate of New Mexico.
Mr. Webster was positive and 'eloquent
this theme, and all his followers, and
a gre"t many who were nut his followers,
echoed his- earnest assurances with evi
dent comfort to themselves and to the ut
ter cuufusion of all abulitiouists and Wil-
Ant-proviso-men. it was suspected at
the lime that:ibis : was a mere dodge be
hind an alledged divine authority, to es
cape the responsibility of a jiist exercise'
of human authority; it was said that Mr.
'Webster and
. his party caught at the pre
text to screen themselves in the desertion
of si, policy to which they had before beim
pledged; but that, it. appears, now was a
grave .injustiee, fur .. events nave proved
that . the geutlemen to - --tylioin. we allude
were altogether right. it, is true- that
slavery.. has,.gotie into New Mexico; it is
true that shivery, new exists,in New Mex
ico; but the larrof God—i. e., the law of
soil and climate—is su strong againstit
L. at nothing but the most: stringent hu
wan law is, able, to keep it in existence;
at.least we infer as much from the folluw
in.* synopsis 'of *a recent statute passed by
Lit z ; territorial legislature: .
The killing or maltreating of a slave
is placed on a revol with the sat, e offen

stealing or--enticing a slave away. or aid
