- JuJge Story, in givtug che opiniÃ³n of ihe Court Ta the late Pennsylvania case, Ã¼eared: "By the general of nations, no ition is bound to recognize, in its own orcinions, ihe law of slavery of anotherSlavery being a purely municipal regu tion. any recognition of it by a foreign overnment is a matter of cornity, and ot of international right." Here we have the CreÃ³le case decided by the highest tribunal in our nation. The JBritish are not bound to recognize our law of slavery: consequently there ia no propriety in our demanding indemnification, es a matter of right. If the British pleaae to give us any thiiig, very well. If otherwise, how can we complain? What will Mr. Webster say lo this decisiÃ³n? The most he can say will be.that he had a bad cause.and he argued it as well as hecould.
