From the Ag.
Negroes in the Cars.
Some mouths ago in the Philadelphia
Court ot Common Pleas, Judge Allison
charged a jury, in the case of a colored
woman against a conductor of a railroad
train (Philadelphia and West Chester),
who had put her off the train because she
tefnsed to sit where he directed her, that
he was liable to damages for the assault.
The jury gave the stim of SSOO damages.
An app<a! was taken to the Supreme
Court. On Monday last Judge Agnew
delivered the opinion of the Supreme
Court, reversing the decision of Judge Al
lison. Judge Agnew is a Republican, was
elected by the Republican party, but he is
also a lawyer of high character, and great
moral rectitude as a man. He docs not
believe in a mixture of races, nor forcing
a negro into the society of tbe white race,
whether in cars, or churches, or anywhere
else. His opinion in this c;te covers the
whole ground, and all who read it must be
satisfied with its marked ability. Judge
Agnew reasons on ibis question, and reach
es that conviction that all logical minds
must reach who reason about it. The ne
gro race God lias marked as a separate
and distinct people, and this cannot be ig
nored by the teachings of fanatics or fools,
and so the learned Judge decides. The
Radicals are very much excited over this
opinion of a Republican Judge. The fol
lowing decision tells the whole story :
IMPORTANT DECISION IN THE SUPBEMK
The case of Mary Miles against the
\\ est Chester Railway Coprpany, in the
Supreme Court, came up day before yes
terday, and Judge Agnew gave an opiuion
that will be found interesting. The case
was one where the plaintiff claimed that
she w*a9 ousted from Iter seat in a car on
the said road, and ejected from the train
jon account of her color. She gained her
cause in the in the lower Eastern courts,
but defendants carrieJ it to the Supreme
Court. The following is the decision :
It is admitted no one can be excliidi'd
from cairiage by a public carrier on ac
count of color, religious belief, political re
lations or prejudices. But the defendants
a-k the Court to say if the seat which the
p aintiH WHS directed to take was in all re
spects a comfortable, safe and convenient j
seat, not inferior in any respect to the one
she was directed to leave, she could not
recover. The case theietore involves no
ass' rtion of the inferiority of the negro to
the white passenger. The simple question
is, whether tne public carrier may, in the
exercise of his private right of piooerty,
separate passengers by any other weil-de
fined characteristic than that of sex. * *
The right of the carrier to separate pas
sengers is founded on two grounds— bis
right to private property as a means ot
conveyance and the public interest. The
private means lie uses belong wholly to
himself, and imply the right of control for
the protection of his own interest as well
as the performance of bis public duty. It
is not an unreasonable regulation to seat
passengers so as to preserve order and de
corum and prevent contact and collision.
If the grounds of regulation be reasonable,
courts of justice cannot interfere witb a
cairier's right of private property. The
right of a passenger is only that of being
carried safely, and with a due regard to
bis comfort and convenience, which are
promoted by a sound and well-regulated
separation of passengers. * • * •
Who would maintain that either at an
inn or on a vessel it is an a-onable regu
lation to compel the passengers, black and
white, to room or bed together? If a
right o#private prop rly iinplie.- no right
of control, who shall decide a contest be
tween passengers for seats and berths ?
Why the Creator made one black and
the other white is known not, but the fact
is apparent arid the races distinct. Con
ceding equality with natures a perfect and
rights as sacred, yet God has made them
dissimilar, at.d imparled to tliein features
ot' character intended to imply that they
shall not overstep the natural boundaries
he has assigned to them. The natural law
which forbids their intermarriage and the
social amalgamation which leads to a cor
ruption of races is clearly divine. The
separation of the black and while races on
the surface of of the globe is a fact equally
apparent. * • • •
The light of each to be free from social
contact is as clear as (heir right to be free
from intermarriage, • * there
fore, we declare a right to maintain separ
ate relations as far as is reasonably practi
cable, but in a spirit of kindness and char
ity, with due regard to equality ami rights.
From an opinion delivered in 1837, by
the late Judge. Gibson, it appears that the
satus of the negro never tell within the
term " freemen," anil that the emancpa
tion act of 1838 did not elevate him to a
citizenship in the State. In 1838, the
people of tne Commonwealth, by an ex
i press amendment of their Constitution,
1 riv#w the line directly between the white
citizen and the black inhabitants ot the
State. It is clear, therefore, that under ita
Constitution the white and black man
stand in separate relations. Never has
there been an intermixture of the two
races, socially, politically, or religiously.
Following these grounds we are com
pelled to declare that at the lime of the
alleged injury there was that natural, legal
and customaiy difference between the
black and the white passengers in a public
conveyance, the subject of a sound regula
tion, to secure order, promote comfort and
preserve the peace. The defendants were,
therefore, entitled to an affiimative answer
to the points recited in the opinion.
The Pedestrian and hi 3 Wager.
Edward Payson Weston, the pedestrian,
is twenty-eight years of age. weighs some
135 pounds, is of light complexion, and
has a pleasant expression of countenance,
without developing any particular charac
teristics. He has undertaken a journey of
twelve hundred and twenty-six miles, on a
wager of SIO,OOO. The starting point was
Portland, and the ending Chicago. H<j
is attended by John Grindell,a wel-known
pedestrian, and Edward Ingalls ; and Mr.
T. F. Wilcox, the other party to the wager
is represented by IJenjamin M. Curtis and
John T. Laphen. The latter gentlemen go
over the route with Weston, but ride in a
carriage. Messrs. Grindel! and Ingall are
also allowed that privilege when they do
sire. Weston wears a blue SAck coat,short
breeches close to the skin, red socks, and
gaiter shoes reaching well above the ankles.
I'pon Ins lo ad lie has a hat nearly white,
Hade of cloth, the rim of which was but
toned al the top from four sides. In his
hand he carries a rattan stick. His gait is
easy and his speed fast.
The utmost care is taken to preserve his
health. He eats sparingly of ggs, chick
en, beefsteak and stale bread ; drinks cold
tea, sleeps on husks and expects to accom
plish his journey by the 28th inst; or rath
er he has that period in which to accom
plish it. The tact is one that w ill tax the
courageous pedestrian, and if he accom
plishes it, the sum named is none too much
for compensation.— Ex.
Payson has also made a wagei, that on
some part of his journey within twenty
four consecutive hours, he will travel 100
miles of the distance. lie has made two
attempts to accomplish this latter feat, in
both of which he failed by a few miles, —
He is still confident of bis ability to do
this tall walking, and is about to put in
another full day's travel on the 100 mile
bet. His progress, condition, spirits <fcc.,
are cbronicled by the daily papers with as
much particularity as was the movements
of the Prince of Wales in his visit to this
country, a few years since.
P. S. Since writing the above the tele
graph brings as the news that lie has failed
to make the 100 miles on his third trial—
reaching Conneaut, Ohio, instead of Ash
tabula, as was intended, from Silver Creek.
N. Y. He arrived at Conneaut at 8:12 P.
M., on Saturday night last, and his feet
were so badly swollen that be could pro

The Presidential Election.
If all the Southern States arc admitted,
the full electoriai vote will be 317 ; ahso
lute majority required, 159.
Resolutions never go backward, and the
present one will progress steadily,bringing
in under the Conservative banner other
States, and confirming by increased ma
jorities, those that have already cut adrift
from Jacobin rule.
No one, it is to be presumed, will deny
that the following States are absolutely and
hopelessly lost to the Jacobins for the next
Presidential contest, viz : California, Con
necticut, Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland,
New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, and
Ohio. They poll 119 votes, leaving 40 to
insure an absolute majority. Willi pres
ent prospects, can there be any doubt hut
that they can be readily obtained ? Indiana
and Illinois give twenty-nine votes. Will
not both of these States wheel into line ?
When we see in one year a change of 45,-
000 in the Jacobin Majority in Massachu
setts, may we not even hope for that fossil
State, arid still more so for New Hamp
shire and Maine? Then ihrrcare several
of the Northwestern States that undoubt
edly will cut loose from Jacobin rule with
in the coming year, and it will be impossi
ble, with all their hardihood of action and
defiance of the Constitution, for the ex
tremists to negroize all the Southern States
so that sme of them will not undoubtedly
vote lor the Conservitive candidates. Tho*
it will take some time to reform the Sen
ate, the Jacobin rule will be destroyed in
the next House, and all power for further
mischief be laken from them. Let us
then be thankful for the bright skies above.
We have an abiding conviction that the
Republic is saved.— National Intelligencer.
WAO SHALL BK TUB RADICAL CANDI
DATE ?—Quite an animated contest is now
going on in Radical circles in reference to
the next Presidential nomination—one
wing favoring the aspirations of Chief Jus
tice Chase, and the other urging the selec
tion of General Grant. It is a very pretty
struggle as it exists in the hands of our
political opponents ; hut we incline to the
opinion that it will be labor lost on their
part From present appearances the De
mocracy intend to put an emphatic veto 011
any candidate the opposition may select ;
and we do not doubt that the next Presi
dent of the United States will be a sound
conservative Democratic statesman, who
will administer the government in accor
dance with the letter and spirit of the Con
stitution, and with a view to the best in
terests of the country. The Nation has
had a surfeit of black Republicanism, and
the American people will not care to give
it a new lease of power in the hands of
either Chase or Grant.— Euston S.ntintl.
