Lydia Maria Child, Isaac T. Hopper: a true life, Stop thief! (search)
most speed, again followed by the cry of Stop Thief! Having run some distance, and being nearly out of breath, he darted into the shop of a watch-maker, named Samuel Mason, who immediately closed and fastened his door, so that the crowd could not follow him. The fugitive passed out of the back door, and was never afterward recaptured. The disappointed master brought an action against Samuel Mason for rescuing his slave. Charles J. Ingersoll and his brother Joseph, two accomplished lawyers of Philadelphia, conducted the trial for him, with zeal and ingenuity worthy of a better cause. Isaac T. Hopper was summoned as a witness, and in the course of exaf, he manifested no partiality during the trial, which continued several days, with able arguments on both sides. The counsel for the claimant maintained that Samuel Mason prevented the master from regaining his slave, by shutting his door, and refusing to open it. The counsel for the defendant replied that there was much valuab

Senator Mason on allegiance to the FederalGovernment. During the debate in the Senate, Monday, on the Wigfall Expulsion resolution.-- Mr. Mason said he was very certain, if a Senator was nMr. Mason said he was very certain, if a Senator was not entitled to a seat, it could be vacated whenever the facts, which warrant such a course, should be disclosed. If it be a punishable offence to allege a constitutional truth, then the resolution may be well founded. For one, he (Mr. Mason) recognized no allegiance to this Government. He recognized and acknowledged no allegiance to this Government, none whatever; and here he took his posull, and that the State holds the same relation it did before the passage of the act: he (said Mr. Mason) denied it. Virginia denies it. Six of the States, as far as they knew, not only denied it, bu the Senator from Connecticut would say the act was a nullity, then he held language which he (Mr. Mason) thought, with great respect to him, is more disrespectful, tenfold, than the language for whi
he matter was under discussion with the American Government the opinion of Lord Clarendon seems to have been unfavorable to the proposal that private property at sea should be respected during war. No final decision was come to, and no official communication was made, and the American Government expressed a wish that all communications upon the subject should be suspended. Some time afterwards Mr. Dallas read to me a dispatch of considerable length and much ability, which was addressed to Mr. Mason, at Paris. In that dispatch it was stated by the American Government that it was impossible that private property on board belligerent vessels should be respected at sea; but General Cass added that he considered that the right of blockade, as authorized by the law of nations, was a great abuse; that the only case in which a blockade ought to be permitted was when a land army was besieging a fortified place, and a fleet was employed to blockade it on the other side; but that any attempt t
What does it mean? The Alexandria Sentinel, judging from circumstances within its knowledge, attaches much importance to the resignation of Col. Cooper on Friday last, Though a native of New York, Col. C. is a resident of Fairfax county, Va., and an ardent Southern man in his feelings. He married a sister of Senator Mason, of our State. The Sentinel has reason to believe that his determination was very suddenly arrived at. Taking this in connection with the reports which have gained credit in well-informed sources of Mr. Lincoln's war policy, we think it highly probable that a service has been determined upon, of which Col. Cooper was unwilling to be the agent.--On account of the office which he held, he would have been intimately associated with all orders for military movements. For some cause he has resigned, suddenly and unexpectedly, as we have reason to believe. In these critical times we point to this as a fact that may cover a great deal!
