Where there is no law estab lishing slarery, the master cannot control the Congress hss power to legislate with regard to the territories until they shall apply for ad- wiii ot tne siare by lorce, ana the presumption mission into the Union as Slates. The laws is in faror of freedom. The master, m goirifcjmust be "needful," and are left to legislative to a territory, does not carry with him the law discretion. There are two classes of acts; aad miscellaneous HcaDinn. The Died Scott Case. Opinions of Judges McLean and Curtis, dissent ing from the Judgment of the Court. Associate Justice McLean proceeded to ex press his views in llie case of Dred Scott vs. Sanford. After staling the fads relative to the case, he proceeded to say that the plea as lo jurisdiction is radically defective. It hss nev er been held necessary that to constitute a citi zen, a man. should have the qualification of an elector, Females and minors may sue in the Federal Courts, and so may an individual who has his domicil in the Siale in which ho may cue. The most general definition of a citizen is a freeman. The plea does not show Dred Scolt to be a slave. It does not follow a man it not free whose ancestors were slaves. It was said colored citizens are not agreeable members of society; but this was more a mat ter of taste than of law, Several of the States have admitted such persons to the right of suff rage, and recognized them as citizens; and this has been done in slave as well as in free States. On the subject of citizenship we have not been very fastidious. Under the treaty with Mexico, we have made citizens of all grades, combinations and colors, The same was done in the case of Louisiana and Florida. No one ever doubted, nor a court held, that the inhabitants did not become citizens under the treaties. They have become citizens without being naturalized. Throughout the continent of Europe, wilh. out exception, it has been held that slavery can exist only in territory where it bad been estab lished, and beyond that the master cannot sus tain himself save by some express stipulation. There is no nation in Europe which considers itself bound to return the master his fugitive slave, under the civil law or the law of nations. The slave is held to be fiee where there is no treaty obligation or contract to return him to bis master. In the case of Prigg against the State of Pennsylvania, the state of slavery is deemed to be a mere municipal regulation, founded and limited to the range of the State which enacts It. This was the decision in the pase of Somerset, in Englaud, which was deci ded before the American Revolution. Con gress has no power to interfere with slavery in the States, or to regulate what is commonly palled the slave trade among the several Slates. We know that James Madisonthat great and good man was particular to regard slaves escaping from servioe or labor as persons," and not as property, While he (Judge Mc Lean) agieed that this Government was not made for the colored race, yet many of them in the New England States Swfercised the right of suffrage when the Constitution was adopted and it was npt doubted that its tendency would be to ameliorate the condition of the race. Many of the States took measures to abolish slavery; and it is a. well-known fact that the belief was cherished by leading men, both of the South and of the North, that the institu tion of slavery would gradually decline uptil it should become extinct. All slavery has its origin against its natural right. If, in making the necessary rules and regu lations respecting the public lands, a territorial or temporary government is requisite, Congress haa the power to establish it. The power to of the State whence he removes. Slavery, he iepeated or property in human beings does not arise from the international or common law. but from a mere municipal regulation. There was no just ground for the argument ibat this was exclusively a Missouri question. Dred Scolt and his family were free under the decisions given within the last twenty-eight years. A slavo who acquires his freedom by his removal to another State, cannot be re duced to slavery by his return to the Slate from which he emigrated. So far from this being merely a Missouri case, it is one which comes under the twenty-fifth section of the ju diciary act, and therefore may be brought for the revision of the Court from the Supreme Court of the State of Missouri. Associate Justice Curtis gave his reasons for dissenting from the majority of the Court. The question is, whether a person of African descent can be a ciiizjo of Ihe United Slates. The Constitution uses the language, "citizens of the Uuiled States at the time of the adop tion" of that instrument; referring to those who were citizens under the confederation. It may, therefore, be safely said, Ihe citizens of the several States under the confedeiation were citizens of the Uuited States under the Consti tution. It is a fact that all the free native sub jects of New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York and North Carolina, descended from the African race, were not only citizens, but pos sessed the franchise of electors on equal terms wilh other, or white citizens. Those colored persons were not only included with the body of white persons in the adoption of the Con stitution, but had the power to and did act in its adoption. Under the Constitution every free person born on the soil of a State and made a citizen by foice of its Constitution and laws, is a citi zen of the United States. Having stated the ground of his opinion, and explained the pro visions of the Constitution, he said that every citizen at the time of the adoption of that in strument was so recognized, and no power was conferred to discriminate between color, or de prive any one of his franchise, It is not true in point of fact that the Constitution was made exclusively by and for white people. The pre amble openly declares that the Constitution was formed in order to secure to the peuple of the United States and their posterity the bluings of l'berty, and as for the colored citizens, in five of the States Ihey were among those for whom the Constitution was ordained and estab- ished. Color, in the opinion of the framers of Constitution, was not necessary to constitute citizenship under the Constitution of the Uni ted States; and it might be added that the power to make colored persons citizens has been acted on in repeated instances in the treaties with the Choctaws and Cherokees, and that of Guadaiope Hidalgo, in 1848. And he arrived at the following conclusions: 1. That the free native born citizens of each State at the formation of the Constilution be came citizens of the United States. S. That the free colored persons born witLin some of the States, and citizens of those States, were also citizens of the United Stales. 3. That every such citizen residing in any State, has the right to sue and to be sued in the federal Court of the State in which be le-sides- 4. As the plea of jurisdiction in this case shows no facts exiept as to African descent, and as this fact is not inconsistent with citizen ship of the United States, the decision of the Circuit Court for Missouri was incorrect. He, therefore, dissented from the opinion of the ma jority of the Court that a person of the Afri can race cannot be a citizen of the united States. He did not believe the opinions of the Court on questions not legitimately before it lo be binding. He believed, however, that the court has jurisdiction in this case, and maintained that undei the law of Missouri, Dred Scotland his family were free persons on their return to in eight distinct instances, beginning wilh the first Congress and coming down to 1040, Con- uncle perished, and Owen Doyle who saved himself is their uncle. He saved himself by forcing his way out of a window while the wa ter was rushing in. He remembers swimming on to the ice; and then lost consciousness. Jrme Barton cannot tell how he got out of the the window.

If Jack becomes satirical, and alludes in scornful terms to the world, be sure Jack's first love has sp'outed. If you find a pocket edition of Byron any where about Jack's clothes, be sure Jack is far gone in his first love. If you find a pair of patent leathers coming home from the shoemaker some Saturday af ternoon, and can'l remember ordering them, and they don't fit any boJy but Jack don'i blame him. First love is responsible. If you see Jack's finger ends rather inky, and scraps of an acrostic anywhere around, be assured that first love has aused the spoi ling of some good stationary. Finally if Jack is suffering from first love, don't be hard on the poor fellow, and above all don't meet the complaint with too strong rem edies, lest it strike in and Jack strike out from parental authority.

It is dimcult to con ceive a more melancholy spectacle, than to see these two children looking on the mangled remains of their mother, father, and nearly all who were dear to them. BEC00NIZ1NO THE DEAD. Yesterday morning the wife of Mr. Morley arrived from St. Cathrines, to pick out of many dead, his body. The scene was hcart lending as she passed from one dead body to another, all marking death with greater hor rors by beiog more or less mangled. At last one, even more distorted and mangled than the rest, was come to; and a wild scream but 100 well told her tale of woe. -dud in a large storehouse, strewd with dead bodies; and with others going the rounds to make simi lar heartrending discoveries, was she left to kheel down and be-vail her bereavement. Whilst on one side of the large building a row ol bodies were placed, as yet unrecognized, and questions were asked of every new comer it he knew or she knew any thing of them, a ical antagonists with lies and detraction that I sob or a m0Ml would be heard in another should shame a demon to promulgate.

Cabinet becomes virtually President, and sways the whole executive branch of the gov ernment. It follows that the best qualified, the soundest and most reliable men should fill those positions men whose very names and history shall give assurance to the nation thai our public affairs are not under ihe sway of whimsical dotaids in statesmanship, or rash sectionalists. of mole-blind politicians, and un scrupulous partizans.J Brilliancy is not enough. Meie capacity is not all that is requisite. But a Cabinet that is thought to lack these qualities, and does not assure the nation of its fairness, discretion, patriotic inlent acd comprehensive nationality, cannot well be hail- d wilh much satisfaction by the people at arge. Where sections and localities demand to be consulted, and rival partizans are 10 be kept placarded, it becomes indeed a task of in finite difficulty to frame a suitable Cabinet and this we apprehend to be the secret of the present disposition of the executive departments. Gen. Cass, who figures in the new arrange- ment as Secretary 01 Mate, is a una 01 uisio rical character; on Which account, and because of his more than ordinary talents in certain directions, and his long and conspicuous career on the public stage, he is certainly entitled to the respectful consideration ol ihe country. Still we must express our decided doubts ol his fitness to the position to which he is now ealled. He is well stricken in years; and his advanced age must partially incapacitate him to cope with the immense and ever accumula ting business of his department. Nor is this all. The whak line of his antecedents abun dantly shows to our mind, at least, that to manage the diplomatic i.nairs ot the govern mnt ia not his especial province. Whether it has been tomaniftsthis zealous patriotism, or whether it is native to his temper, we know not. but he has always appeared to us lo male an ostentatious display of a hostile spirit to wards foreign countries, simply because Ihey were foreign, snd to bring the same disposi tion to the adjustment of differences between our own and other nations, Taking ihis one prominent characteristic in connection with his vacillating, and at length ultra course upon Die most important subjects of domestic polioy. his natural impulsiveness, and at the same time rather hesitating timidity when prompt aciioo r . a temper and engajing manners. 1 ompareu with many prominent politicians in his section of ihe country, he is not inelined to an excess of uliraism; nor is every one in that remote part of the republic so well enlightened as him self with the idea that there is a North, aad that lbe North constitutes a very essential part of the United Slates. It is quite evident thai he is the most popular member of Mr. Bu cbanin's Cabinet; indeed, as a man, he is en dowed with strong elements of personal popu larity, one of that geniil class who are able to draw ihe right hand of fellowship with all who have intercourse with them. But whether these attractive qualifications, together with his superior talents, will not give him the greater influence on the wrong side of some momentous questions, we r.re in doubt. At ihis juncture, his selection for that place ia an experiment, whose results are yet to be seen. The new Secretory of War is Gov. Floyd, of Virginia, (he same gentleman who last sum mer, in the heat of the canvass, addressed the merchants of New York from the steps of tie Exchange in Wall street. This event, and so far as we know, this alone, introduced him to the nation, who had vaguely heard his name before, but knew little of the man. On that occasion he manifested good gifts of speech, and we may presume khaihe is endowed with sufficient intellect and diliigence to go through the common routine ef bis office, especially in these limes of peace. The same things, in respect to their qualifications, peihaps some thing yttmore favorable, may properly be 8,d of Messrs. Aaron V. Brown, of Tennessee and Jacob Thompson, of Mississippi, (a Slate, by the waj, which has not heretofore enjoyed, many of the drippings of office,) whs have been appointed to the departments of the Navy and the Interior. Tbey are men 01 conam ble ripeness in public affairs, of whom if not great things, yet at least a safe and fair per tormance of their duties, may be expected. Judge J. S. Black, the new Postmaster-General, from our own state, though not so wide ly known as some other names in the Cabinet associates in ihe uprightness of his moral and political character, and will doubtless bring lo the discbarge of his official duties a fidelity d honesty not over common among our pub lic servants.
