Read and ponder the Fugitive slave law! : which disregards all the ordinary securities of personal liberty, which tramples on the Constitution, by its denial of the sacred rights of trial by jury, habeas corpus, and appeal, and which enacts, that the cardinal virtues of Christianity shall be considered, in the eye of the law, as crimes, punishable with the severest penalties, --fines and imprisonment.
