Mr. Edilor : Allow ino to oxpress ray
surpriso and regret that you ahould be
found cclioing tho ailly ohargo of The Ad-
vance, that I was gnUty of " slandor upon
our auprome court " ln RfTirming, as I dld
in tho Christian Regisltr, that it (tho
court) had decidod that " the negro had
no rights whioh the white man was bound
to respeot." I have already refuted tho
charge in The Advance, and that paper,
in a shame-faced way, has abandoned, if
not wilhdrawn it ; and now I must ask
an oppcrtuntty to moet it in your col-
umns,
Let me say then that I did not misrop-
resent the supreme court in merely repoat-
ing what has been aflirracd a thousand
times over by the most eminent statoamen
and publlcists of this country, and what
is so imbedded in the juridical and pollt-
ical literaturo of thi3 country that no in
genuity or sophistry can avall to hide or
eradicate it. My ohargo against the court,
so far from belng a slander, is literally
true.
Of course, every well-informed person
knows that Judge Taney used the phrase,
" negroes had no rights whlch the white
man "was bound to respect," as desoriptive,
in the first place, of their status for moro
than a hundred years before tho Deolara'
tlon of Independence ; but his opiuion,
from first to last, is a lnbored argument
to show that neither the Declaration of
Independence nor the Constitution, nor
anything else in the action of the govern
ment, had in the slightest degree changed
that status; that it remained in 1850
exactly what it was in the colonial times ;
and tbereforo that Dred Scott, belng a
negro, had not and could not have any
standing in the court, moro than a horse
or a dog. True, the judge did not make
this comparison, but that is exactly what
the decision amounts to. Its whole sub
stnnce and spirit is summed up in the
phrase, " no righta which the white man
is bound to respect." Its infamy has no
parallel in the history of modern jurispru
dence; and it is no wonder that Judge Ii.
Curtis of Massachusetts, a conserva-
tive of the conservatives, who effectually
exposed its sophistry in a dissenling opiu
ion, was so disgusted with it that he re
tired from tho bench.
The statement of The Advance, that
" the whole tone of Judge Taney's lan
guage on the point is ttrat of sadness and
sorrow that such a public sentlment
should have existed," unless made in ig
norance, is an example of cheekiness that
is phenomenal. Xo language of " sadness
and sorrow " can be found in that opinion,
and The Advance, when challenged to
produce a line or a word to prove its state
ment, prudently declined to undertaketho
task. No Spanish inquisitor ever wielded
the piucers or turned a thumbscrew upon
his victim with less of sorrow thau was
manifested by Judge Taney. When you
;an succeed in extracting any sign of
tenderness or sympathy for the negro
from the Dred Scott decision, you need
not despair of seeing peuitential tears in
the eyes of Beelzebub, or of distilling
attar of roses from siluriau rocks. '

A stcpenduotjs rallroadjfcheme is developed
at Indianapolis. A number of persons from
various states throughout the West met there
ln seciet convention for the organlzatlon of
what is called "The People's railroad company
of America," whose purpose is to build two
llnes of double-track narrow gauge rallroad
from New York to San Franclsco, and from
Chlcaco to New Orleans. Three hundred mil
lion dollars of stock is to bo subscribed, ln
shares of say $50 each, so that every poor man
ln the country can ue a stocKhoioer in n rau

head of tho scheme, and has had men travellug
throughout the country soliclting snhscriptlons,
nnd they have procured over 8100,000 in Indl
