THE DECISION IN THE CIVil, RIHITS
CASE.
L*Tew York Suu.]
The decision of the Supreme Court of f,
the United States on Monday in the t,
Harris case, which came up from f
Tennessee, practically erases from the F
statute book this section of the Rle- a
vised Statutes :
ilf two or more persons in any I
State or Territory conspire, or go in K
disguise on the highway or on the 1
premises of another, for the purpose of a
depriving, either directly or indirectly, I
any person or class of persons of the t
equal protection of the laws, or of I
equal privileges and immunities un- .
der the laws, or for the purpose of pre- a
venting or hindering the constituted I
authorities of any State or Territory I
from giving or securing to all persons c
within such State or Territory the t
equal protection of the laws, each of c
such persons shall be punished by a t
tine of not less than $500 nor more than t
$5,000, or by imprisonment, with or a
without hard labor, not less than six
months nor more than six years, or by t
both such line and Imprisonment."
This provision was originally enact
ed as a part of what was known as the I
Ku-Klux law, and was intended to 1
enable the Federal authorities to pros
ecute the bands of lawless white per- I
sons in the Southern States who were
engaged in the commission of crimes
against the blacks, and to bring themorn
to trial before the Federal tribunals in
stead of in the State courts.
The constitutionality of the statute
has always been questioned, and the I
declaration by the Suprtme Court that
it is Invalid accords with the opinion I
which the Sun long ago expressed on
the subject. Indeed, it was difficult to see j
how the Judges could come to any I
other conclusion, in view of their pre- I
vious utterances in respect to the limi- I
tations imposed by the Constitution
upon the powers of Congress.
The doctrine which underlies the I
present decision is that such constraint
as the Federal power is authorized to I
exercise for the maintenance of the I
civil rights of citizens must be exerted
upon the States rather than upon indi
viduals. Unless a State, for example, I
infringes some of the prohibitions
against State action contained in tihe
Constitution, there is no occasion for I
the interference of the general Govern
mont to preserve the personal rights in- I
tended to be guaranteed by those pro
hibitions.
This is sound State rights doctrine,
and it is satisfactory to find it laid
down by a Republican court.
THE LAW OF PERJURY.
We find the following important
legal Item in the New York letter of
one of our late exchanges :
Ernest ilarvior, held by a police jus
tice toawait trial upon the charge of
perjury and malicious libel brought
by Mario Prescott, obtained writs of
habeas corpus and certiorari and ap
plied to Judge Lawrence, of the Su
preme Court, for a discharge. The ap
plication Is dismissed in these terms :
Gtreenleaf says that in proof of the
crime of perjury it was formerly held
thdt two witnesses were necessary, be
cause otherwise there would be nothing
more than the oath of one man against
another, upon which the jury could not
safely convict. But this strictness has
long since been relaxed, the true pirin
ciple of the rule being merely that the
evidence must be something more than
sufilcient to counterbalance the oath of
the prisoner and the legal presumption
of his innocence. The oath of the op
posing witness will not, therefore,
avail, unless it is corroborated by other
independent circumstances. In this
case it is claimned, and it has been
found by the magistrate, that the coin
plaint is corroborated as to ntatters mn
terial to the inquiry by letters of the
defendant. The evidence being before
the magistrate and he having found
thereon that the prisoner should be
held, I cannot, on a habeas (orrpuls or
on a certiorari in aid theIreof,rovcrse or
a et aside his decision.

A DEAF MUTE BALL.
[New York Letter.]
At the invitation of one of the Pro
fessors of the Deaf Mute Asylum, I at
tended a ball given by these people a
few evenings ago at Lyric Hall, and a
very novel and at the same time inater
eating experience it was. The mutes
in question were all graduates of that
institution. A great many were mar
ried, and the majority of the women
were pretty, though a peculiar qulok,
startled expression brought on by their
ftailing which haunted their eyes, de
tracted from their appearance. They
had a very superior band, and it was
queer to see how they regulated their
steps and kept time to the leader's
baton, for the strains evolved from the
instruments of the musicians were of
course lost upon them. Nearly all of
them were expert dancers, and some
of the young women were sylphlike in
their grace. Among other things at
the entertainment there was a hand
some prize for best lady dancer. Mr.
Wallace, the well known dancing anas
ter, was the judge. Without hesita
tion he awarded the honor to a young
deaf mute lady, the wife of a dead
mute. There were six speaking com
petitors against her.
Noticing that nothling but lemonade
and similar innoeous stuff was served
in the refreshment room, I asked the
reason therefor of my companion. "lt
is necessary," said he,"- to preclude
against trouble. These people are
very excitable and very quick to see
fancied wrongs, and had they wine or
any other kind of liquor to further
stimulate them, I would not care for
the consequences. The married llfe of
deaf mutes is usually not a happy one,
jealousy Is their besetting sin, and on
occasions of this sort a Jealous hus
band or a wife will always be able to
find pretexts for being disagreeable."
Among the people present, was a
handsome and engaging young man, a
traveller for a commercial house, whd
had married a deal mute and accom
panied her to the ball. "He courted
her for four years," said my friend,
",and she did not care for him at first.
lie persisted however, and finally won
her, and they are very happy together.
lie told nme that le did not know
what lilo was until he enjoyed It in
the silent society of his pretty and
otherwise accomplished wife. Ile had
no less than eight sisters at home, and
you can just imagine how they must
have led him."
U. M. MAtRSllALS ON A RAItD.
Dr. A. it. Thompson. of Big Creek,
informs us that the IT. M. Marshals are
after a number of persons who have
been cutting timber off government
land, in the Blig Creek and Little river
country, north of (i'ataloula lake. Ito
says he is convinced there is a mlistakel
as to most of the parties, as they have
not depredlated upon the public land,
but got their timber on private entries.
Of this fact he says he is certain, as he
has had dealings with a number of the
parties, and bought lumber from them.
The doctor had better keep mum on
the subject, or ITneloe Hum's men will
give iint an interview.
The majority of those inculpated are
said to be persons from the Ounchita
country, who sufntlfered by overflow last
spring, and were fed on government
rations for a portion of the year. They
moved back in the hills and engaged
in the lumber business, with the result
above stated, and, from being benefi
ciaries of the government, they are
now prosecuted by over zealous gov
ernment officials. I'rom refugees
numbers have now become fugitives
from the minions of the law, having
deserted all they have In their terror to
escape arrest. 't1Iese people are poor
and ignorant, andl have obeen driven by
necessity to whatever dejpredations
they nity hlave ommittel. If ever
there was a time the'government'shouht
