L AW CASE S.
CASE OF THE FUGITIVE SLAVE ANDERSON.
A CASE has occurred under “the slave she was. The case presents Ashburton Treaty,” between this incidentally a remarkable instance country and the United States of the evils that attend and spring which raises many questions of the from the institution of slavery. greatest interest, and which, but In 1853 Burton sold Anderson for the internal troubles which to one M.Donald, whose estate arose within the States, might was 32 miles distant from have caused a war, in which the Burton's, and consequently the Monarchy would have appeared as husband and wife were now severed the assertor of human freedom by a space of from 30 to 34 miles, and the Republic the champion of instead of two. In September, slavery. The questions of inter 1853, Anderson had been seen by national law, of law as between a several persons in the neighbourcolony and a foreign country, and hood of Brown's (where it will be as between the parent State and remembered his wife lived), and the colony, were singular and therefore, and because it was on a complicated.'

The fact was that the States which compose the M.Donald was about to sell his American Republic are divisible black chattel ; and the poor fellow, into two classes—those in which perhaps fearing that he might be slavery is recognised as an essential sent to some distant place, desired part of their polity, and those in to effect a change of owners which which slavery is not permitted, would keep him in his old neighalthough recognised as a legal bourhood : possibly he had an idea status in the other portions of the in his mind that he would rather Union. The State of Missouri is run away than be sold away. At a “Slave State." In Howard any rate he did not return to county, Missouri, a negro, born in M‘Donald. He had been lurking the States, named John Anderson, about for three weeks, and had or “ Jack," was the slave of one been several times pursued, when Moses Burton. Anderson had a one day he accosted a planter wife, a negress, who lived not with named Seneca T. P. Diggs, and her husband or his owner, but asked him to tell him where one with one Samuel Brown, whose Charles Givens lived; and on estate was about two miles distant being asked why, he answered from that of Burton, and whose that he wished to get Givens to
buy him. He belonged, he said, to a man named M'Donald, and that he did not want to live on the other side of the river, because his wife was living at Brown's, about six miles from Givens'. This tale, which to an Englishman appears the true working of human nature, and would excuse many faults, bore an entirely different aspect to the American slaveowner. Diggs charged Anderson with being a runaway, and refused to let him go. The law of Missouri declares that any slave found more than 20 miles from his home shall be deemed a runaway; that any person may apprehend any negro being or suspected of being a runaway, and provides a reward for so doing. Diggs does not seem to have acted with peculiar harshness, for he told Anderson to come with him and get his dinner, and then he would go with him to Givens, and see about the matter. Anderson at first walked quietly with him; but whether he thought that this treatment was deceptive, and that he was to be secured and delivered up to his owner, or whether he feared his owner's cruelty, or had from the beginning resolved to make his escape; whatever the cause, he suddenly took to his heels. Diggs called to four
negroes who were with him to give.
chase, telling them that if they caught him they should have the reward. It is, therefore, probable that Anderson had more faith in Diggs' cupidity than his good nature. Diggs himself, having a child with him, did not long keep up the pursuit; but the negroes chased their fellow-man and slave. Anderson drew out a knife and declared that if they came near him he would kill them. The negroes, therefore, kept off, but hunted the poor fellow within a
circle, which, gradually narrowing, at length brought Anderson near Diggs. On seeing this Diggs crossed a hedge, and approached the fugitive. As he got nigh, Anderson threatened him with the knife; Diggs struck at him with a stick, which caught in a bush and broke; aud then Anderson stabbed him in the breast. Diggs turned to run from him, his foot caught in a bine, and he fell. Anderson went up to him, stabbed him in the back, and then fled. The negroes made a short chase after Anderson, who, however, escaped. There exists in the Northern States of the Union a party vehemently zealous for the abolition of slavery. They have a secret organization for promoting their views, and in especial for aiding the escape of fugitive slaves. This organization is so complete that the runaway is passed from hand to hand through many hundreds, perhaps thousands of miles of territory, and only reappears in Canada, where he is popularly said to have arrived “by the under-ground railway." Perhaps by the aid of this Society, Anderson succeeded in reaching Canada. Diggs lingered for some time, but finally died of his wounds.
Merely as a fugitive slave Anderson would have been safe under the protection of Great Britain. But in 1842 a treaty, known as “the Ashburton Treaty," was concluded between this country and the United States, which contained, among others, provisions for the mutual extradition of persons charged with certain classes of offences — amongst them that of “murder:” and the colonial statute which gave effect to this treaty as between the States and the Province, provided that, on a specified application, the justice of the peace should issue his warrant
