' SATTJEDAY, 1IASCH 21, 1857. r
The Caeerf Drcd Scott Tie Seath Tbe
Democratic Party," ,
We liuve heretofore , puUistcd the sub
stance of the dpinion delivered by the Sa
preme Court of the United States in . the
case of Dred Scott. .... Inasmuch as it prom
ises to be the pirot upon which the future
discission cf the subjects . embraced bj it,
will hinge, we here give a condensed state
ment of all the material facts involved in it.
In 1834, Dred Scott wa3 a slave owned
by Dr. Emerson, of. the TJ. S. Army, then
stationed and residing in Missouri- In that
year he was removed by his master to the
military post at Pwock Island, in Illinois,
and was there held . as n slave until April,
1830.' In 1836, Dr. Emerson removed
from Rock Island to Fort Snelling, on the
west bank of the Mississippi river, in the
territory of the United States north of
Missouri', and north of the line of 35 deg.
and 30 min., usually known as the "Missou
ri Compromise line." Dr. Emerson remain
ed at Fort Snelling- until the year 1838,
still holding Scott as ft slave.
: In the year 183C, Major Taliaferro', an
officer of the U. S. Army, also removed to
Fort Snelling carrying with him a negro
woman, Harriet, likewise a slave, and in
1836, sold her to Dr: Emerson. Thereaf
terand while at Fort Snelling, Dred
and Harriet were married, with the con
sent of their owner, Dr. Emerson. In 1838,
their master retnrned to Missouri, bringing
with bim Dred and Harriet as well as a
child Eliza, born in the meantime to them,
still holding them as'slaves another child,
Lizzie being bora after their return to Mis
souri; V;' .'. ,' ' ' : " '
Between the year 1833 and the time of
the filing of this suit, Dr. Emerson sold and
delivered the said negroes, Dred, Harriet,
Eliza and Lizzie, as slaves to the claimant,
Sanford, who claimed them as Elaves.
Scott first commenced proceedings to ob
tain freedom in the State Courts of Missou
ri; but having faildl to establish his right
to be free in these, he filed the present suit
In the Circnit Court of the U. S. for the
District of Missouri, claiming his own and
the freedom of his wife and two. children,
above named. ' . . ,
'To the declaration of the plaintiff, the
defendant, Sanford, filed a plea ia abate
ment, alleging a want of jurisdiction in the
court on the ground that the plaintiff "is
a negro of African descent, his ancestors
were of pure African blood, and were
brought into this country and sold as slaves;
and that the plaintiff is not a citizen of the
State of Missouri ; and therefore, not enti.
tied to sue." To this plea, the plaintiff,
Scott, demurred, and the Court sustained
the" demurrer."" Thereupon the "defendant
pleaded over," justifying the alleged trespass
on the ground that the plaintiff and his
family were his negro slaves. The fact3 as
above detailed were then agreed upon,
and the court instructed the jury to find
for the defendant, which they accordingly
did on the" 16th May, 1854. Defendant
excepted to the instructions of the Court,
and prosecuted a writ of errcr to the De-j
cember term, 1854, of the Supreme Court
of tho United States. ,
At the December' term 1855, the case
was elaborately argned, and held under ad
visement by the Court until tba December
Term 1856, when it wa3 reopeued , for ar
gument,' and was again argued with great
ability and elaborateness. On the bth of
March, 1851, tho Court announced its de
cision, which we have already placed be
fore our readers in the Patriot of the 16th
Of the importance of this decision to the
country at large, there is no room for cavil.
Upon the main points in the controversy
between the North and South, the opinion
s full, unequivocal and well sustained; and
considering that it wa3 concurred in by
seven of the nine judges on the Bench, it
may bcTestcetned as settling and putting to
rest the very grave and exciting questions
which it adjudicates at least so far as that
tribunal, as at present constituted, is con-
cured. So far as Chief Justice laney inti
mates the power of a State to make citizens
of aliens, independently of CoogressionaJ
egislation, we think, he traveled beyond
the record, and that such intimation, was,
as a question of law, erroneous. e may
also add, that, under a more strict rule of
practice, the single question on the demur
rer to the plea of defendant, would have
been amply sufficient for. a decision of the
caso. .7Ve do not, however, impugn, the
power of tbe Court to express an opinion
upon the entire merits of the case. It has
that power, and ia the expression it has
given we heartily concur; and cherish the
hope that the great body of the people every
where, will adhere to and sustain it. lt
embodies the doctrines of constitutional lib
erty, and so' long as the Constitution, shall
continue to be "respected, we think the de
cision oaght to be likewise, respected and
observed as a just and conclusive precedent.
It would thus become a strong and power
ful support to the permanence and peace j
and glory of the lUpubuc; and thebupreme
Court would become what it was intended
to be, a strong," unyielding break-water as
against tbe outside storms of wild popular
tumult and fanatical madness; while the
States and sections, reat andsoisH, bouyed
aod sustained by the Constitution, would
ride the political sens in security and
safety. - ; -
But while tho American party of the
who'o Union regards th'u decision as a
binding and aataoriuUveaJkii ctntiot
uf constitutional guaranties and coastitu
tioaallatr; aaJ arc cheriihin? and expres
sing tlo lope tlat.it will gi re peace and
cuict to a love 1. but distracted country,
what do we e in progress oa tht pari of
our adversaries, of rtry hue and color, in
belli sections of the Union? The' iuad-
dtuad pirit of Freesoiiism is everywhere
dccrjlutr, through the North, the decision,
as a political job," preconcerted and close
cp, to tnoct tta views cf uthra" po,'Iti
c!.viadthe Interest of Southern slave

way, not only to prevent the so-much de
sired quietude, but to inflame the feelings
and passions of that people to a pitch of
still more deadly hostility towards this peo
ple. In short, they seek to renew, increase
and aggravate the unholy strife and dam
cable agitation which has so long , hereto
fore afflicted lis," and in this way to achieve
the ends which constitute their hope and
aim.' In the promotion of this object the Dem
ocratic pressof the South is, in effect, strik
ing hands with these agitators of the North.
They already claim the "decision" of the'
Court as a triumph of the peculiar'princi- ;
pies held and advocated by their party for I
the last twenty' years. They parade their
felicitations' and self-gratulations in their
columns before the people, as if to say :
''upon all these questions we are endorsed
by the' Supreme judical tribunal of the
land, why therefore, any further opposition
to the democracy?" : To oppose democracy
hereafter is to oppose the Supreme Court 1
This is all that is craved by the "Tforth, it
is all that is asserted by the North. It is
denounced and spurned by the North a3 be
ing precisely what the democracy of the
South claim it to be, a triumph of a politi
cal party. And we are now and always
have been told by this democracy that they
are the non-agitating party, the peaceful,
quiet loving party, and the party in which
all good men seeking to restore the Union
to concord and fraternity, must repose
their trust. "Do we want examples of these
truths; take the National Erathe'N. Y.
Tribune, and the Nashville Union $ Amtri'
can. ; r . , '
On the other hand, the American party
have always left these questions where they
properly belonged. ,They have never un
dertaken either through their conventions
or their presses to determine either the con
stitutionality of the MissouriCompromise,
or the power of Congress to legislate upon
the subject of slavery in the territories. In
their very first national convention of the
party, held in June 1855, they expressly
"pretermitted" the expression of an opinion
on the legality of the question; but fraukly
and freely gave their views as a matter of
policy, and so far as politics or politicians,
as such, had any power over it. Still that
party was again and again ridiculed from
the stump and by the press, as unsafe and
not entitled to confidence or support, for
this very reason. The stem " logic of
events " is rapidly unfolding the wisdom,
and conservatism which, so far, have maiked
the career of the American party. We
have as great hope and confidence, to-day,-
in its final triumph, as we have ever before
had. We have uot lost our confidence in
the virtue and intelligence of the people;
and we believe that they will unite and re
buke and silence the accursed agitation,
which is now again about to sweep over
the country. ' . ' - ' -

" Alleia SuffraB. . '
Mr. Buchanan, in his inaugural address,
favors tho construction of a Railroad to
the Pacific by the General Government. In
this he is not inconsistent, having at an
early period of his political life, voted for
works of internal improvement, whilst in
Congress; amongst them the celebrated
Maysville Road which was strangled by
the veto of Gen. Jackson. But, his posi
tion is in direct antagonism to the creed of
a very large proportion of his party, in the
South especially. They cannot with any
show, of, consistency, support the views of
their President touching the constitutionali
ty -of the Pacific Railroad proposition,
Our contemporary of the Union ty Ameri
cauy although in oar Judgment,- no very
persistent advocate of ; strict construction,

portion of the democracy when it dissents

the support of the sham democracy of the
day, such an exhibition oi independent

wiih deference and respect. We cannot fthio our
opinion to nit tht ntcertain humor of the time, but
on this question stall adhere to toe old land maras,
as laid down and successfully maintained by all our
former democratic Presidents.
Well said, neighbor. . The "humor of the
times," as Indicated by the proceedings of
Congress, is extravagance and profligacy-
a wild and reckless expenditure of the
public treasure. Mr.' Buchanan may
" fashion kis opinions to suit " this hu
mor you cannot. But, neighbor, the un

ing can be fairer than to leave the people of a Ter
ritory free from all foreign interference, to decide
their own destiny for themselves, sutject only to
the Constitution of the United Stater. ;
No more unequivocal avowal of the doc
trine of Alien Suffrage could be desired by
the most ardent worshipper of this false
God. We have expected that our coutem
tempcrary of the, Union, if- American, so
prompt to take issue with Mr. Buchanan op- j
on the Pacific Railroad, in the construction
of which the whole nation, the South par
tially, bas -a deep and all-pervading inter
est, would, with equal promptness, condemn
this anti-republican doctrine. .It has not
yet done so. It has ignored the subject al
together. Why? Can it be possible that
our contemporary is inclined to approve
and defend Alien Suffrage? ' Its silence up
on this great question of the times would
6eem to iudicate as much. "We pause for
a reply. . ;

"So far as the main question is concerned, the
decision of the Supreme Courtis not new. The fact
that Africans and their descendants cannot be
made 'citizens' is one that bas been acted upon by
many of the States, as well ss by all the depart
ments of the federal government. ,'
"A tree nroof the Northern State bas tlways
been refused a passport as a 'citizen' cf the United
States ; and the precedents in the State depart
ments include the term of John Q lincy A Jam.
. ' It was made an objection to the admiViou of
Missouri, that iti organic law forbid the remdonce
of free negroes within its boundaries. Henry Clay,
and the other advocates of the admission of the
State, who h ll to the right cf the Stale to ex
clude, consented to the adoption of a proviso, in
the word, we btlieve, of ibe Constitution, that
nothing ia the act of admission should be construed
to forbid the citizens of tbe States from bavin:; at
the rights there of citizens of the United Sutes
follo wing the requirement of the Constitit on, sod
reserving tbe wbuL subject of citizenship as a judi
cial question. "
"Congress has acted upon the precedent ever
since ; and several of the btates Pave copied the
provision of Missouri, and excluded theblaiks from
residence on the ground that the are not.citUens

which gave the riiflit of tuff rage to ''every civilize I
