from Kentucky, 1795–1801. For tears, he had been suspicious of Spanish aggression in the Mississippi Valley, and in 1806 his denunciations led to the exposure of the “Burr Conspiracy.’ While a member of the Kentucky legislature in 1809 he fought a duel with Henry Clay, in which the latter was wounded.

months as a supernumerary officer, resigned his commission in January, 1781, and in the fall of that year opened a law office in Fauquier county. Two years afterward he removed to Richmond. . There he had already acquired some reputation as a member of the House of Burgesses, to which he was first elected in 1780 (before he had reached the age of twenty-five) and as one of the privy council of the governor, to which he had been appointed by the legislature, in the autumn of 1782. As a public

aker he had none of the graces of oratory. His voice was harsh, and his manner as he began a speech was apt to be languid and

and the emphatic earnestness and energy of his style, the close and logical connection of his thoughts, and the easy gradations by which he opens his lights on the attentive minds of his hearers.” During most of the years between 1780 and 1791 he was a member of the House of Burgesses, and at the same time actively engaged in lo practice. His first appearance in national politics was in 1788, as a member of the state convention called to act upon the ratification of the Constitution of the United States. The majority of the people, in Henrico county, where he then resided, were inclined to favor its rejection. Marshall had been Marshall

its open advocate, but his personal popularity was so strong and their reliance on his sound judgment so great that they were content to make him one of their representatives. The revolutionary atmosphere , which he breathed in his boyhood, and his early association in the North with men from so many different states, risking all for a common cause, had made him in principle a nationalist. Then, and for almost a century afterwards, the ordinary Virginian, when he spoke of his country, meant his state. ‘I,’ wrote Marshall of himself 'was, while in the army, confirmed in the habit of considering America as my country and Congress as my government. In this spirit, soon after Patrick o had stated to the convention, wit great force, his objections to the ratification of the Constitution, he assumed the formidable task of a reply, and without matching Henry's eloquence, succeeded by solid o, in meeting fully the weight of his attack. . Afterward he answered the criticisms of George Mason, , who had asserted that, as the Federal courts were to have cognizance of all cases arising under the laws of the United States, and as these were paramount to the laws of the states, their jurisdiction would embrace overy case that could be thought of. “Has,” said Marshall ‘the government of the Unite States power to make laws on every subject? Does he understand it so? Can they make laws affecting the mode of transferring F. or contracts, or claims tween citizens of the same state P Can they go beyond the delegated powers ? If they were to make a law not warranted b any of the powers, enumerated, it would be considered by the judges as an infringement of the Constitution which they are to guard. . They would not consider such a law as coming under their jurisdiction: . They would declare it void.” In the controversy as to the ratification of Jay's Treaty, Marshall took what was in Virginia the unpopular side. At a public meeting of its *: in Richmond, over which his former instructor, Chancellor Wythe, presided, it had been declared uncon; stitutional. It was a commercial treaty. Congress had, by the Constitution, o: to regulate commerce with foreign nations. As it was thus made the §: subject of legislation, it could not be that of diplomatic settlement. This was the line of argument; and Marshall, at a subsequent meeting of the supporters of the administration, in a masterly speech, refuted it so utterly that #. position was abandoned in all

[ocr errors]

subsequent discussions in that state. This brought him into friendly acquaintance with the leading Federalists in Congress, when, shortly afterwards, he visited. Philadelphia, then the seat of government, to argue a cause in the Supreme Court of the United States. At this time his professional income was the largest received by any member of the Virginia bar, amounting in most years to $4,000 or $5,000. At the first organization of the Federal government he had been offered the position of district attorney, but preferred to remain in private practice. In 1795 he declined a tender by Washington of the office of attorney É. and the next year that of the place of minister to France.

President Adams, who had a particularly high opinion of his learning in the law of nations, was more successful in bringing him into the service of the country. In 1797 Marshall accepted an appointment as one P the three special envoys to France, sent to negotiate with the Directory as a last hope of preventing war. , Washington at the same troubled period consented to resume his place as commander-in-chief of the army. It was a crisis at which no good man felt free to refuse a call to public duty... Marshall's services in the negotiations with Talleyrand, as the minister of foreign affairs, were conspicuous, and he returned to the United States with a high national reputation. After declining an offer from Adams of an appointment as an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, he accepted a nomination (1798) to the lower house of Congress, where he soon became the acknowledged leader on points of international and constitutional law. He resigned his seat early in 1800 to take the place of secretary of state.

On January 31, 1801, he was appointed chief justice of the § States. There had been that time, three chief and the longest term eld by any of them had not reached , six years. Marshall's ended only with his death, in 1835. More than any one who has filled that office, before or since, he dominated the court and shaped its course. For the first ten years, reversing the , previous practice, the opinions in almost all cases decided were written and delivered by him alone. As Professor Thayer has observed, this ‘seemed, à of a sudden, to give to the judicial department, a unity like that of the executive.’ Soon after, through appointments made by , Jefferson and Madison, a majority of the court having

Marshall

become Republicans, there was a change, and its opinions were written by the different judges in turn, but for many years subsequently those in cases involving grave constitutional or international questions were generally delivered by the chief justice, and ordinarily without dissent. Of those of the latter description which he pronounced between 1801 and 1835, most have passed, § universal , recognition, into the law of the world. In the others he read a new vigor and vitality. into the Constitution, of the United States. It was a fair subject of controversy whether that paper on its face was the nd of a confederacy or created a form of popular government; whether it was an expression of the will of thirteen independent states or of that of the American people. Marshall had the opportunity to determine with authority its true construction. A nationalist from his youth, he could now, and he did now, impress on , the United States a national character for all national purposes within the range of the pool to Congress, the xecutive, or the courts. It reuired a civil war to complete the work, but the foundations of the theory on which the war was conducted by the United States were laid by the great chief justice. An early opportunity was seized to assert the doctrine for which he had contended in the Virginia convention, that courts could declare unconstitutional statutes to be void. Jay, the greatest of his predecessors, had retired from the Supreme Court in .1795, and refused to return to it in 1801, feeling that it was too feeble to stand up ot the political forces against which it must often be matched. Marshall showed that it could wield the full strength of what he liked to call ‘the American empire’ in defence of the humblest individual even as against the President or . Congress or the government of a state. His style of judicial composition was clear id stately, his method of reasoning plain and convincing.

In 1901, the centenary of Marshall's appointment as chief justice, was celebrated, at the instance of the American Bar Association throughout the United State and the eulogies then delivere were collected in three volumes. His publications, apart from his judicial opinions, were a hurriedl prepared and ill-proportioned i. o #.

The equitable apportionment of funds or securities among two or more creditors in such a way as to prevent one from so enforcing his claim as to exhaust a fund or security upon which another is dependent for the satisfaction of his demand. Thus, if there are two creditors, or legatees of an estate, A and B, and 1S entitled to payment out of two funds—e.g. real, estate and personal estate—while B is only entitled, to payment out of the personal estate, A will be compelled to take payment out of the real estate if the personal estate is not sufficient to pay, both A and B. On the same principle, if a specific legatee has his fund diminished § the action of creditors, he may, recoup himself. out of the residuary Testate. This doctrine is known as the ‘marshalling of assets.” When the owner of two estates mortgages both to one person, and only one to another person, the mortgagee of both estates must take payment as far as possible out of the estate which is not o to the second mortgagee. is is called the “marshalling of securities.” See EQUITY, SUBRogATION.
