Denial of a Trial by Jury.* NElTI-IER the Act of 1793, nor that of 1850, allows the
alleged slave a trial by jury. So far as I am aware, the only argument, worthy of
notice, that has ever been offered against the right of an alleged fugitive slave to
a trial by jury, is that given by Mr. Webster, in his letter to certain citizens of
Newburyport, dated May 15, 1850, as follows :— “Nothing is more false than that
such jury trial is demanded, in cases of this kind, by the constitution, either in its
letter or in ...

Thomas SIMS (Fugitive Slave.) to hold the party after he has been removed. In
the case of a fugitive from justice, it must be proved that he has committed a crime
. But proved for what purpose? Clearly, to establish the right of removal. This
having been established, the warrant that authorizes his removal has no effect to
authorize his imprisonment or punishment in the state to which he is removed;
but the right of that state so to hold and punish him, must be established, just as if
he had ...

An attack was made upon the house, the slaveholder declaring (as was said) that
he “would not leave the place alive without his slaves.” “Then,” replied one of
them, “you will not leave here alive.” Many shots were fired on both sides, and the
slave-hunter, Edward Gorsuch, was killed. At a subsequent trial, a number of
persons (nearly forty) were committed to take their trial for “treason against the
United States, by levying war against the same, in resisting by force of arms the
execution ...

Habeas corpus proceedings in fugitive slave cases under Wisconsin's personal
liberty law were virtually the same as those of Massachusetts. The judges of both
the supreme court and the circuit courts were given authority to grant the writ in
cases where inhabitants of the state were arrested as fugitive slaves. The writ
would be issued upon the written application of the district attorneys.” The same
four states provided for trial by jury in fugitive slave cases. Vermont in 1850 and
1858, ...

The courts offered opportunities to circumvent border sentiment sympathetic to
the South. Convincing an entire community of a new legal perspective might be
impossible, but in a legal case, only a small jury had to be persuaded, or possibly
just one individual—a judge, or a jury member who could deadlock a trial. There
were enough pockets of sympathy for fugitives that a jury might rule against a
kidnapper if the case was properly framed. An appeal to law could also marshal
