The New Governor of Kansas.
A ill not proceed to the Territory, it
Hated, until the first o(Mny. The new
Secretary, F. 1'. Stanton of Tenn., (for
merly M. C.) will act as Governor until
Mr. Walker's arrival.
Tho Washington Union publishes Mr
Walker's letteraecepting hisappointment
in which he says:
'It is understood that you and all your
Cabinet, concur in the opinion expressed
by me that the actual bona fide residents
of Kansas, by a fair, regular vote, unaf
fected by fraud or violence, must bo per
mitted in adopting a State Constitution,
to decide for themselves what shall be its
social institutions. I contemplato a
peaceful settlement of the question by
un appeal to the patriotism and intelli
gence of the whole people of Kansas.
I contemplate no appeal to military pow
er, in the hope that my countrymen in
Kansas from every section, will submit
to a decision in this matter by a full and
fair vote of a majority of the inhabitants
of the territory."
This reads very well, and if the course
it murks out for the Governor's adminis
tration is strictly adhered to, the North
will be sati.-lied, as there is no doubt bow
a majority of the inhabitants of the Ter
ritory will vote on the quet'on of Free
dom or Slavery, if a ''i-iir and regular
vote, unaffected by fraud or violence," is
allowed them. The people will wait anx
iously to pee whether the new Governor's
acts correspond with his promises.
In connexion with this subject, we
copy the following paragraph, from an
The Washington correspondent of
the Sf w ork Post, who seems to be very
well inl'urmt'd concerning Gov. Walker,

people of Pennsylvania, shortly before
Htu -liaiian's election, that a fair trial of
the principles of the organic act of Kan

The Dred Scott Case—Opinion of
Judge McLean.
(Concluded from last week's paper.)
witr.THF.n Tim uf.tukv of a m.avk
On this point the learned Judge cites
numerous authorities, which conclusive
establish that the rule of "once free
always fWc," has heretofore been tho
settled doctrine of the Courts, even in
Slave States. The Judge says "it
been so held in Mississippi, Missou
South Carolina, Virginia, Louisiana,
formerly iu Kentucky, Maryland
other States." Wc regret that want
rcom prevents our quoting tho exact
words of some of the decisions by which
this doctrine is sustained. " '
Judge McLean ably argns that the
principle laid down in these decis
ions is based upon tho respect due by
each State to the sovereignty of its sis
States. He says:
"The States of Missouri and Illinois
are bounded by a common line. The
one prohibits Slavery, the other admits
This has been done by the exer
cise of that sovereign power which ap
pertains to each, as emanating from the
voluntary action of the people. Have
the people of either any right to dis
turb the relations of tho other? Fach
State rests upon the basis of its own
sovereignty, protected by the Consti
tution. Our I tuon has been the foun
dation of our prosperity and national
elory. Shall not we cherish and main
tain it? This can only be done by res
pecting tho legal rights cl each State."
Aftr reenpil ulating the facts in tho
caso before the Court, the Judge pro
ceeds: "I am not able to reconcile this result
with the respect due to the State of Il
linois. Having the same rights of sov
ereignty as the State of Missouri in
adopting a Constitution, I can perceive
no reason why the institutions of Illi
nois should not receive the same con
sideration ns those of Missouri. Allow
ing to my brethren the same ritrht of
judgment that I exercise myself, I must
be permitted to say that it seems to me
the principle laid down will enable the
people of a Slave State to introduce
Slavery iuto a Free State, for a longer
or a shorter time, ns may suit their con
venience; and by returning the slave to
the State whence he was brought, by
force or otherwise, the status of Slavery
attaches, and protects the rights of the
master, and defies the sovereignty of the
Free State."
We cannot refrain from making one
more extract, touching the obligation
of each State to respect tho sovereign
ty of another. It is taken from an
opinion of Judge Mills, of the Kentuc
ky Court of Appeals. Speaking for the
Court, ho said:
"If by the positive provision id our
Code, we can and must hold our slaves
in the one case, and statutory provis
ions equally positive decide against that
right in the other, and liberate the slave;
lie must, by an authority equally imper
ious, be declared free. Every argument
which supports the right of the master
on one side, based upon tho force of
written law, must be equally conclusive
in favor of the slave, when he con point
out in the statute tho clause which se
cures his freedom."
And he further said:
' Free people of color in all the States
are, it is believed, quasi citizens or at
least denizens. Although none of the
States may allow them the privileges of
office and suffrage, yet all other civil
and conventional rights are secured to
them; at least such rights were evident
ly secured to them by the ordinance in
question for tho government of Indi
ana. If these rights are vested in that
or any other portion of the United
States, can it be compatible with the
spirit of our confederated government
to deny their existence in acy other part?
Is there less comity existing between
State and State, or State and Territory
than exists between tho despotic gov
ernments of Europe."
These are the words of a learned and
great Judge, born and educated in a
Slave State.
To this question Judge McLean re
plies in hub-stance, that the general
practice of the Supreme Court has been
to follow the decisions of the State
Courts where they give a construction to
the State statutes; but where these de
cisions have not been cmtsir'i if, the Court
has not felt bound to respect them. In
proof of this the Judge citestheopiuion
of the Court, delivered by Judge Grier,
in the case of Pease vs. Peek (13 How
ard, 5S9) in December, 1855. Judge
Grier said:
"When the decisions of the State
Court arc not consistent we do not feel
bound to follow the last, if it is contra
ry to our own convictions and much
more is this thi case where, after a long
couibC of consistent decisions, some new
light suddenly springs up, or an excited
public opinion has elicited new doctrines
Ly: 'vo ol lormer sate precedent.
On which Judge McLean appropriate
ly says:
These words, it appi-Mi to rne, have
a stronger ntiidicntion to tho case before
us, than they had to the cause in which
they were spoken as the opinion of the
court, and I regret t!'.?.t tliey do-not seem
to be as fresh in the recollection of
some of my brethren as in my own.
I-or twenty-et'-lit years, ttie decisions ot
the Surrciiio Court of .Missouri, were
consistent on all the point made in this
eise. Put this consistent course was
suddenly terminated, whether by some
new lie-lit suddenly springing up, or an
excited public opinion, or both, it is not
necessary to v. In the ease of Scott
vs. Fmcrson in lKi'J, they weie over
turned and repudiated.

i .i i . i i jv
would not follow the last decision. On
authority I may well repose. 1
cc-iro no oilier or better basis.
The concluding portion of 'he Judge's
opinion is n follows:
But thftre is another ground which I
deem conclusive, and which I will ro
state: The Supreme Court of Missouri re
fused to notice th net of Congress or
Constitution of Illinois, under which
Prcd Scott, his wife and children, claim
ed that they aro entitled to freedom.
This being rejected by the Missouri
Court there was no enso before it, or at
least it was a case with only one side.
And this is the case which, in the opin
of this Court, we are hound to fol
low. Tho Missouri Court disregards
express provision of an act of Cong
ress, and tho Constitution of a sover
'n State, both of which laws for twen
years it had not only regarded
but carried into ctiect.
If a Stato Court may do this, on a
question involving tho liberty of a hu
man being, what protection do the laws
afford? So far from this being a Mis
souri question, it is a question within
tho 25th section of the Judiciary act,
where a right to Freedom being set up
under the act of Congress, and the de
cision being against such right, it may
brought for revision before this Court
from the Supreme Court of Missouri.
I think the judgment of the Court
below should be revorsed.
The abstract we have thus given of
this able opinion, though occupying so
much space, is necessarily imper
feet; but we think it is sufficiently
full and comprehensive togivo our read
ers an accurate idea of tho n.ain
points involved in the important case
to which it refers.
