referred to above in which be has the audacity
m atate that tbe articles we published about

It left him (Denlaon) ' more free to speak with

As this note Is undoubtedly in keeping with
the . representations that Denlaon made while

measures, yesterday, to learn from the proper

WHO HAVE A IUGHT TO VOTK1
It being current rumor that the Commission
ers of Election Intend to decide adversely to
the qualification of voters whose namea do not
appear on the school tax list, as compiled by
the assessors, the following decision of Judge
Dunlop, and the opinion of James M. Carlisle,
Esq , thereupon, will servo to enlighten the
commissioners and voters on the subject. "Wo
copy it from the National IntdUgenctrK of date
June 1st 1854. It is the official record.
The circuit court met yesterday morning,
pursuant to adjournment on Saturday last, fn
order to hear the case on a petition for a man
damus to compel tbe Register of tbe city of
vtasmngionio piace on me un oi amy quali
fied voters at the next election the name of
Charles S. Wallach, sq.. omitted to be entered
thereon by tho Assessors of tbe Fourth ward.
Mr. Carlisle addressed the court on behalf of
the Corporation, and In reply to the petition of
Mr. Wallach above described. He wanted uni
formity at all the polls, and asked a decision of
the court for the guidance of the Corporation
and Commissioners. Mr. Carlisle read the pe
tition of Mr. Wallach at length, stating that he
Is every way a duly quail fled citizen, and had
paiu au nis taxes, as caiica ior uy me two
charters of the city of lS-'O and 1818. He there
fore demands his right to be considered as a
legal voter.
Mr. Carlisle gave H as the lew of the Cor
poration that by the chatter of 143 It Is neces
sary to obey all Us requisitions to be entllled.to
vote Thu claim of Mr W allach was based on
the charter of 1BJ0, and he (Mr. W.) asks that
if his name was omitted through inadvertence
or mistake-, It might bo now restored.
In the coursu of his argument, Mr. Carlisle
based tbe right to vote under tho present char
ter on tho payment of the school tax. and beTd
that tbepropertyquallllcatlon under the charter
ofl&JO Is abolished, ul-o, If a citizen be not
assessed before tbe Slst December, he Is not
liable to be taxed afuruards. So far as the
qualification ot voters is concerned, the opin-

their construction Is right or wrong. . " Carlisle,
Mr. Chaa. S. Wollach atated that thero were I Attorney of the Corporation,

He aaked If the charter ol 1M8 supersedes that Appropriations of the I.a.t Congrts..
of 1630, or was it only cumulative and supple. The following Is the official recapitulation of

the names of citizens could not be registered.
wuen assessors oinmeu giving in tuo names or
cart Its as liable to schoul tax. ther violated
their duty, cither byoceldent or design; but
citizens were not to be made to suffer through
their fault, nor to be deprived of tbe right to
vote.
Equally Incapable Is tho Corporation to refuse
a power to revise the lists and correct mistakes
and supply omissions; In doing this they tran
scend their powers. The case of tho church In
rhiiaaeipnia,quoieauv .r iariuie,neinought
went the other way The powers were much
larger than those granted to this Corporation.
Mr. Coxe concluded by reasserting that tho
act of 1848 was cumulative and not destructive
of the act of 1820, and that, according to tho
decUlon of the Court of King's bench in Eng
land, in ASUDy hbhb, mr waiiacn would
be entitled to an action against au offlcor of
election who should refuse his offtr to vote.
Mr llradluv. for the Corporation, eharartfr.
Ized the petition as seeking to repeal an ordi
nance of 'the Corporation which bad stood the
trial of three elections, aud had nntll now been
quietly acqulsced In hy nil our citizens He
denied that tho Corporation had no power to
pass those regulations, ainco Congress bad
given it all power necessary to carry granted
powers into effect. The act of 1848 covered
the whole ground, and compels the payment of
a school tax In addltlou toother taxes as neces
sary to qualification to vote. Tho Corporation
tun i) done nothing beyond the exercise of this
power Tho ordinance of 1 84 la not contrary
to the charter. If Mr Uallach's cxerclaa nf
suffrage Is endangered, the fault is nobody's
but his own, in not ha.ing examined the
printed and published lists Ilcsldea, the
period for tho operation of a mandamus Is now
too lote, it could opplj only previous to the
31st of December.
Judge Duniou tnougnt iuit Mr. Wallach had
committed no default He had for years been
rrcular tax-payer ani xotcr iu the Fourth
ward, and had a right to presume he was con
tinued as such. It did not appear that Con
gress Intended to deprive a citizen of the right
to vole who had committed no default.
After Mr Bradley had cone uded. Mr. Car
lisle offered the Court a aeries of points or pro
positions for their judgment
The Court, briefly consulting, decided that )
In addition to tbe qualifications under the act
of 1820, that of 184 superadded tho payment
of a school tax; that all the requisitions of the
act of 1848 must be complied with. In Mr
allach's case every qualification was ahown
to he complete. It in the Assessor's duty to
airk out citizens, and that of citizens to find
If they hive been enrotlod, and If all bis quali
fications are complin, the c itlzin is entitlciUo
ote Mr. Wallach had a right to presume he
naa on the list.
All persons having Un requisite nua flea-
lions, and subject to the school tax, ought to
have been assesses1, and are entitled to vote.
Congress appeared to have two purposes In
this act of 1848 one to describe the proper
qualifications for a voter, and the other to raise
a tax for the support of the public schools of
the city. There were other purposes, but they
wvre subordinate and directory, and not indis
pensable. The evidence of qualification af
forded by tbe registry Is not exclusive; other
testimony might ne. a a routed. AJtbouh
refU-
tratlon Is conyenlent and proper, and although
ordered (9 be done, yet If not dona, and all
other things be performed, the party li entitled

Tbo Court granted no formal mandamus In
MrVTallaeh's special cat, tbe decision being
general, and at each to b. applied by the Com.
mlsalonera of Election In bis and all similar
Instances, lie will, therefore, under this Judg
ment, be entitled to rote, notwithstanding the
omission of his name on the lists.

II. SCHOOL TAX LISTS.
1 Fersons whose namea are actually on tho

to he presumed that the assessors, being sworn
officer,, have done their duty, until tho con
trary appears oy proor.
2. In recelrtns: other nertona a. havlev hnn

with that of the Assessors) and If they are sat

and the samo presumption arises In bis favori
so that being challenged that presumption must
be overcome by proof.
3. Proof that a partv has been omitted
through Inadvertency.
The affidavit or the voter himself, and of a
known and creditable witness, In the form pre
pared by mo, and certified to the several polls,
would, In my opinion, be sufficient proof.
The credibility or tho parties making the
oaths Is, or course, not to be lost sight or by
tho commissioners, whose conscience, must be
satisfied (as In the case or a Juror) that tbe
fact Is proven. They will, of course, not vlcld
to mere surmises or unfonnded doubtst hut, as
there seems to be great room for abuses In this
particular, too much care cannot be taken to
prevent them.
A Justice of tho peace should bo In attend
ance at each of the polls to administer oaths.

Wtrii As msny or my friends desire that I should
make tome enplanatlon lo reference to my rotes
In Council against corporation laws requiring vo
ters and commissioners of election to take tbe oath
of allegiance and loyalty, my reason waa and is
simply from tha fact tbal th charter of theoltr
makes provisions as to the qualifications of to tare
and commissioners of election, and any laws tha
Council may pass on that subject a nullity, as any
en may see by reference to section A of charter of
1S48, and section S of charter ol 1S30. Therefor,
any attempt to enforce any such lawa of the corpo
ration would either subject the commissioner of
election to severe penalties, or to entirely destroy
the validity of the election And mr reason on
the 11th Instant for having the form of oath or af
firmation modified waa to make th form appll
cable to an affirmation, by adding at th close th
words & to J affirm") in parenthesis.
t am wii-cir hdq unooaui uon any in lavor or re
r learal meaaur to that end. and will eit tha
fact that, as th charter allows, the corporation
make tha conditions upon which licenses may be
Issued. On August 4, 1SS2, 1 prepared, presented,
and adrocated a bill which was approved Septem
ber 87, 1803, and which of course became a law,
which required every person to take the oath be-,
for a license could Issue to him for any purpose
whatever. Tha fact la. dlalovallv ! kAik -
of my offending' I am not an Abolitionist per at;
do not belters In negro equality, nor think th
Constitution a "league with death and a covenant
with hell " Nor am I In favor of placing coloaed
children Jo the public sohoola with white children
Nor do I prefer Fred Douglas to Gea. McCleliaa
ror the next President. This "i Ih turn of mm
ojTrn'.iiff.'' and the reasons I am objected to, and
many of those who object to m and carp at my
course are In favor of these measures I am un eon
dltlonxUy for a restoration or th Union, and, aa
tbe President haa said, "would save the Union
with or without $Uvtryt or would save It part slave
and part free.but would save It anyhow." andwould
use all means at the command of the Gorernment,
even to tbe negro, mad dogs, or rattlesnakes, to
