ON the publication of a volume whose title indicates its connection with questions arising from the existence of negro The laws for the control of immigration and naturalization as a method of prevention of the potentia in the United States, a recollection of the number and variety of the existing works on that subject will suggest the pro priety of some prefatory exposition of the author s point of view.
Having this character exclusively, it follows that the pro posed work cannot be expected to contain any thing essentially new: The merit of a treatise of this kind must always consist in presenting no proposition without adequate reference or deduction, showing that the same has already been said, or, at least, if not said, has been implied in former juridical expositions.
But the best known propositions, whether of fact or of doc trine, have not always been stated in their proper sequence, or exhibited as coherent or mutually dependent propositions.
Whatever novelty may be found in the following pages will consist in the attempted arrangement of well-known facts, or received doctrines of law, connected with the subject, in their proper order ; though, in doing this, it may be made to appear that some propositions which, in the discussion of the subject of slavery under the laws of the United States, are commonly ad vanced as contradictory or antagonistic, are, in reality, not so.
If successful in being a correct statement of the law on the subject, the proposed treatise cannot be of a partisan character, or cannot be otherwise than impartial in respect to the objects of political parties. For the exposition of existing law is merely the statement of the fact, and is entirely distinct from any ap proval or disapproval of that law, on grounds of moral or politi cal expediency.
This will probably be admitted by all who have made the law to any great extent their study. But the popular manner of treating the subject of slavery may warrant the belief that a very large proportion of those who participate in such discussions would not admit the proposition, and do not ordinarily discriminate between the legal or juristical view of subjects of social interest and other views essentially ethical or political.
The failure to distinguish between the science of law and that of ethics has been common in every country, and manifested in connection with many subjects of social interest ; but never nor in any country more plainly than in this, at the present time, in controversy excited by the subject herein considered.
The connection between private rights and public law, wr hich everywhere exists, is particularly visible in the jurisprudence of republican states, and is in this country not merely a matter of PREFACE.
Vll theory, but a constant object of judicial consideration. Where popular sovereignty is recognized and is visibly operative in the form of government ; where law is seen to have its ultimate source in the collective judgment of the community, the in dividual member of society may the more easily confound law with matter of conscience, and legal inquiry with that investiga tion by which political or moral ends are to be attained.
In the belief that this tendency arises principally from a want of precision in the definitions of law and in the formulas which express the basal propositions of jurisprudence, the follow ing examination of the laws of the United States affecting per sonal condition has been commenced by a preliminary exposition of those principles of general jurisprudence which would be necessarily involved in considering the incidents of free condition and its contraries in whatever country they might exist ; and it has been attempted at the same time to discriminate for use in the succeeding inquiry such terms, already adopted by writers of acknowledged reputation, as are requisite to express the neces sary distinctions.
Some principles are necessarily assumed without proof ; and when stated, as abstract propositions, without being illustrated by application to cases, only those already familiar with the questions to which they apply can be supposed to perceive their relevancy.
The value of the abstract or elementary portions of this treatise may be tested by their attempted application to the practical cases presented in the succeeding portions.
It must be confessed that while a great deal of the literature of jurispru dence may illustrate the constant need of such reference to ele mentary principles and discrimination of language, it will also illustrate the fact that they do not ordinarily receive much attention.
Since it is principally as connected with public or constitu tional law that the incidents of free condition and its contraries have been made the subject of legal inquiry, and now excite most discussion, they have, in the greater portion of the following pages, been presented in that connection.
It seems natural to suppose that, in the jurisprudence of every country, that which in its place in the system is most fun damental must also be that portion which is least the subject of legal doubt, or that which may the most easily be ascertained in the harmony of judicial determinations.
So it will probably be thought by most persons that in the exposition of any class of private rights and obligations arising under American law the constitutional law connected with the subject, or the meaning and effect of the Constitution of the United States in that con nection, especially as determining the political source to which existing rights of private persons are to be referred and on which the continuance of their rights depends, must be that portion of the inquiry giving the least occasion for independent investigation or original reference to elementary principles of construction and interpretation.
IX had long been to me a subject of deep regret that, notwithstand ing the numerous, consistent, most solemn, and with some few and mostly late exceptionsto my mind, most satisfactory ad judications of this court [the Supreme Court of the United States], in expounding the Constitution, its meaning yet remains as unsettled, in political, professional, and judicial opinion, as it was immediately after its adoption.
If one is to judge of the next, by the results of the past half century, there is but a slight assurance that that instrument will be better understood at the expiration, than it is at the beginning of the period.
An industrious collation of ex isting judicial decisions should be as sufficient to establish a deduction of the true principle in that department as in any other of our law.
Yet, in no portion of juristical literature, does the reader so commonly expect that the author undertaking the exposition should be supported by the prestige of a precedent reputation which may give his views an authority beyond any they could have by being simply impartial deductions from the ordinary elements of legal knowledge: And, indeed, Judge Baldwin s further observations, in con tinuation of the passage just cited, indicate that this idea has been countenanced by the practice of the court itself.
The testimony of Judge Baldwin is here adduced not merely as showing that the decisions of the highest courts may not in this matter have been successful as harmonious expositions of the fundamental principles of Ameri can public law, but more particularly because in that connection he has maintained the authority of common law as the control ling juridical instrument for attaining a knowledge of the pur pose and legal effect of the Constitution of the United States ; and because that view is in harmony with the method which has been pursued in the following work.
XI inquiries after truth, on constitutional questions, than those which have been so often resorted to without effecting the de sired result, a clear and settled understanding of the terms and provisions of an instrument in writing which operates with su preme authority wherever it applies.
To me it seems that it can be made intelligible in all its parts by applying to it those established rules and maxims of the common law, in the con struction of statutes, and those accepted definitions of words, terms and language in which they had been used and been received, as well known and understood, in their ordinary or legal sense, according to the subject matter.
In appealing to the common law as the standard of exposition in all doubts as to the meaning of written instruments, there is safety, certainty, and authority.
This can only be a historical question a question of fact ; requiring a preliminary examination of the history of jurisprudence, or of laws deriving their authority from those possessors of sovereign power who established the Constitu tion, or from their political predecessors.
And this again in volves the recognition of those elementary principles which enter of necessity into the jurisprudence of every country, and by which its origin, continuance, and extent, may be determined ; Xll PREFACE.
This inclination or practice of deferring to extrajudicial au thority in questions of constitutional law far more than is cus tomary in other departments of legal science, must indeed be ascribed in part to the fact that in republican states such ques tions are always more or less political, as well as legal questions ; so much so that, whether they are one or the other, whether they are to be decided by the judiciary or by some other branch of the government itself a constitutional question can hardly be decided by either branch alone.
It may be thought that the attempt made in the eleventh chapter of this treatise to answer the basal question of our constitutional law, From whom does the written Constitution derive its authority? Yet that the same questions have been frequently objects of judicial consideration, is abundantly illustrated by the reports, and in no class of cases, probably, more commonly than those in which the rights of slaveowners under the Constitution have been the subject of controversy.
It is however, essentially, a political question, and one which no judicial tribunal whose authority is dependent upon its answer can, in the nature of the case, deter mine. Xlll United States, as the granting or constituent power of the federal government.
So far from there being any general assent to that meaning which, to my mind, is so apparent in the Con stitution, with its necessary practical results, which its framers and adopters must have known and foreseen to be inevitable, the reverse maybe the common opinion.
