The question of non-resistance,' a nd in'

perhaps never before, in the history of
this country, been brought tb eh severe
a test, as they have been in their rela

by the national government;. nor is it
likely that the position of those who
claim the privilege of exemption from its
requisitions, have ever before been so
much abused and imposed upon—at
least, such is the case with many of those
whose plea has been based ripon 'religi
ous or conscientious grounds. The of -

lively to the question, "whetherhe would
take up arms, or slay a human being, in
defence of his wife and children ;" he
may still be as pure a christian, as chaste
and affectionate a husband, and as
worthy a friend and a neighbor, as many
of those who profess to be governed by
principles of an opposite character. He
may still have the letter of scripture on
his vide, and this is mach better 'than to
dissipate the meaning of scriptures into
"thin air," or disbelieve them altogether.
But, there is no necessity for any man
to make such a reply, as there is no war
rant for any officer of the law in asking
such a question,
,of such a people,—'
There is a world-wide difference between
conscientious scruples and. conscientious
convictions. It is a matter of grave
doubt whether any law exists in this
country, compelling a man to tell what
his conscientious convictions ate, in re
ference to the duly.of bearing arms in
defence of his country, his family, or
himself. If a man testifies that he has
conscientious scruples against bearing
arms, and jeopardizing or taking the fife
of his fellow man, from any cause what
ever, whether in defence of his country
or his fireside, and if he is willing to pay
afine in lieu of such services ; he ful
fils the letter of the law, as clearly as
he who voluntarily enters the army ; and
he is therefore fully as much entitled to
a legal and honorable exemption.
Any thing approximating to a reli
gions "test-oath," or any course in the
administration of law, that is calculated
to invade the private domain'of eon
science, is. radically Wrong ? ' and . leads to
I civil and moral inequalities among the
people of any country, as much as did the
persecutions of the Hugenots, the. Puri
tans, and the Quakers, in the olden
times. And yet, there are men, who,
from assumed notions of disinterested
patriotism, are wont to denounce the
icon -resistant, as a coward and a traitor,
and hold his goods and cha'ttles as fair
objects of rapine and 'plunder. One, of
Dr. Franklin's rules of life.was "In hu
mility and humanity—la:imitate Jesug.;"
and if a man's moral sense shouhirlad
him to "resist not evil," as to "turn the
other cheek" when hp is smitten upon
'the right,one, or to "give also his cloak"
when his coat is required, or to pray for
those who "persecute him for righteous
ness sake"—if ho should feel conscien
tiously constrained to do these things
in imitatioei of the teachings of Jesus, it
must indeed be a cruel law, that would
compel him to do otherwise.
Admitting that the obligation in
volved in the marriage covenant, to
"love, cherish,'and protect," is as solemn
and as binding upon the conscience of a
man, as that which is made upon the
holy Evangelists before a court of jus
tice, still,'he may permit his wife and
children to be strnek dOwn:before him
without slaying his adversary in their
defence, withOutiaqing either a coward
or a-traitor, for, trusting implicity in the

scruples regards a law "more honored.in
its breach thap in . its: observance," and
is willing to.pay the penalty rather`than
to oi?iy the laW, it is ailliCuW matter
to compel obedience, in a government
that professes to respect the right's of
conscience, and whose fundamental law
guarrantees to its,citizens the privilege
of worshipping their God, according to
its dictates. •
The very fact that there is a penalty
attached to the disobedience of a law—
which penalty an individual may prefer
instead of a life in conformity to it—in
volves as much freedom of choice, as the
stability of any government can possibly
allow to those living under it, who may
dissent from the provisions made for its
continuance. And, for the sake of the
preservation of the civil and religious
liberties, which republican institutions,
in their unperverted administration,
guarantee tb every citizen of a country,
(under the government of such institu
tions) it becomes the duty of every in
dividual to honestly and cheerfully obey
all necessary 'taws made for its perpetu
ation and welfare, or to -promptly abide
by the penalty, where obedience would
be in violence of individual conscience.
Conscience, to the Mental or spiritual
body of a man, is What the nervous .sys
tem is to his natural or material body—
it is his test of right, and, to bo adapted
to all of man's changing states, must be
surpassingly delicate. 'The . Almighty
did not give man existence to, torment
him, but to bless him. But, when man
violates the laws of his material organi
zation, he cannot but suffer pain,—either
sooner or later--and it is the same when
he viol'ates the laws of' his spiritual or
ganization. Be may violate the enact

these ,considerations should constitute
the organic form of such laws,rules, regu

But, in order to evade the duties ina
posed pporr"men in times of great pub
lic necessity or distress, there may be
some, who, frem a want of principle,
from pecuniary motives, from a• want of
fidelity to the government, or from cow
ardice, will interpose a conscientious or
non-resistantplea, to the constituted au
thorities, and cliim exemption on thit

a maxim in law, that "it id . better -that
