An opinion was rendered by the United Circuit Court of Appeals at New Orleans, on thf 12'.h instant, which is recosnized hy the bar generally as of great importance, and of particular in terest and importance to the attorneys of Western and Southern Texas. It was rendered in the case of Edward Kvey, plaintiff in error, against the Mexican Central Railway company, Limited, defendant in error. The case involved the question of the right of an employee, beiner a citizen of the United States, to sue for injuries re ceived in the repub'ic of Mexico, through the negligence of a railway corporation doing business in that re public, but inco porate-1 in the United States. The opinion of the supreme court of Texas, in the case of the Na tional Railway company aeainst Jack son, is reviewed, and the federal court at New Orleans takes issue with our supreme court upon every proposition asserted by it, and holds that the federal courts have and will entertain jurisdiction in such cases. The fol lowing language is used in the opinion referred to: "While the act of nes-lience com plained of was committed in the re public of Mexico, neither of the par ties is a citizen of Mexico, but both. are citizens of the United States, and therefore there ought to b3 no ques tion of international comity in the case, further than to enquire whether the laws oil Mexico give a right to the plaintiff to recover damages for such negligence, anl the extent of such right, lhe laws of the republic of Mexico create a civil liability in favor of the person injured by nesrlie'enoe, and give a distinctcivii remedy there for in the nature of pecuniary damages; o the same effect are the laws of Tex as, a ng-ht arising under, or a lia bility imposed by, either the common law or the statute of a sfate may, where the action is transitory, be asserted ind enforced in any circuit courtof the United States having jurisdiction of the subject, matter and parties." l he court proceeds to say that the laws of Mexico are peculiarly clear and pla:n in defin'ng negligence and he civil rights resulting therefrom. That the objection that plaintiff should how a reason, before being allowed to ne in the courts of thi3 country, why he had not hrought bis action in the republic of Mexico, is one to which the attention of a court was never before ailed and has no precedent to support it; that the judemeot of the trial court o the premises would be a final deter mination of the rights of the parties; that the court is not asked in this onnection to enforce any penal law of the republic of Mexico, but merely to enforce the civil riaht of the plaintiff granted by the laws of Metico, oc- asioned by an act f negligence such as gives a right of action under the aw in any civilized country: that the fact that the defendant is sued in a forum where extraordinary damages such as are allowed by the law of Mexico cr.not be recovered, is a mat ter for which it oatrht to thank heaven and not eomp'ain. lhe plamtin in error, Mr. Evey.'m hose favor the case was reversed was represented in the appellt9 court by uda-e W.
