decision tbattbe citizen of each state is not entitled to the privileges and immunities of citizens of the several While the decision is a disgrace to the court that rendered yet it is the and must be accepted until tbe people cnn change The appeal should be made to and it should be made strong and and at as early a day as the constitution and laws should be so amended as that the people can get at
