He says': Tha' single ,qucstion. before the Court in th'ia cbn'ncctibn, was, whether Cbn- possesses the prohibit the introduction, of slave property into a Terri- tory. In ruling' it adversely, Court does not say, or ty in a Territory, has other'safc-guards, or that the owner is entitled to any further pro- tection in its enjoyment, than' exists in ve- to other Jutj'Js Pi property. A sen- tence or two froni tho o'pioion of.the..Chief Justice will, it is this'plain. It had been .contended-'that tlicro was a peculiarity in.slave -properly, that placed it on a different footing from .other property. For this the laws and usages of other mi tions, and the reasoning of statesmen and jurists, upon the relation' slave, had been referred, to. .These, says the Chief Justice, cannot, .the powers of or take from "the citizens the rights" they have and as 'the Constitution recognizes, the. right of property of the master in a slave, nnd makes no .betweun. this description of property aii'd other property owned by a no acting un- der the authority" of the United '.States, whether it be. legislative, executive, or'ju- dicial, has a right'to draw such a disUriction or to deny to it, the benefit of the provis- ions and guarantees which. pro- vided for of'private property against the encroachments" of tho govern-' and after' referring. tp: the fugitive1 slave clause as expressly aiii'rming'tho right of property in a ,slave, the concludes: no> word can'be', found in tho Constitution wliicH'.gives. Cougress power over slnve'propcrty, or which entitles property .of that'k'ind to tection than property of any other descrip- tion." All, says Mr.N Johnson, "that the Court has decided, slaves are property, as much so as aiiytliiug else that may be owned by that'such property is entitled to the ,same--7-hot to less.or guaranties, as any-other description of property." This doing obviously the. the .Court, it necessarily''follows, that 'whatever stitutional g'ov'errimcnt'cah'clo in'-rcgard to any other kind of property, it can -itoiri re- If ;any; other; itiiia tJieir b'wn'Jiuii.ts. a'tiy it ;is 'a; jucliciaJj'and Wh'ct licV 'did decide or is ;a siniple que'itipn''of ,most dis'tinguislVed" Jitwye'rs11bf.''11-i' It'calls fer .'n'o1 Action" of'a! politica'Lcbn- "or flip itif accordance' the of Mr..
