orces of the United States. Of his duty to see to the execution of the laws he could have had no doubt, as that is in words imposed by the Constitution itself. Nor could he have had any doubt of his authority and obligation to resort for that purpose to the powers conferred on him by the laws referred to. The meaning of these laws is free from all question, and the constitutionality of the first was long since sanctioned by a unanimous decision of the Supreme Court in the case of Martin and Mott, 12 Wheat. 19, whilst the validity of the last was never drawn into doubt. In that case it was also decided that the President was the sole judge of the facts which would authorize his use of the means provided by these laws, and that his decision was conclusive not only upon the citizens, but upon every branch of the Government, whether Federal or State.

It has been decided by the Supreme Court of the United States that that act is constitutional, and that the President alone is the judge of the question whether the exigency has arisen. This decision was made in the celebrated case of Martin agt. Mott. The opinion of the Court was delivered by Judge Story. Let me read from the opinion of the Court: It has not been denied here that the act of 1795 is within the constitutional authority of Congress, or that Congress may not lawfully provnment of the object. The service is a military service, and the command of a military nature; and in such cases every delay and every obstacle to an efficient and immediate compliance necessarily tend to jeopard the public interests. --Martin vs. Mott, 12 Wheaton's Reports, p. 29.
