Էջ 41 - We doubt very much whether any action of a State not directed, by way of discrimination, against the negroes as a class, or on account of their race, will ever be held to come within the purview of this provision.
Էջ 41 - State had appropriated the same property to be used as a common by its people for the purposes of agriculture, could the citizens of other States avail themselves of such a privilege. And the reason is obvious ; the right thus granted is not a privilege or immunity of general but of special citizenship. It does not " belong of right to the citizens of all free governments," but only to the citizens of Virginia, on account of the peculiar circumstances in which they are placed.
Էջ 41 - States that no law shall be made or enforced which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States, or deny to any person the equal protection of the laws...
Էջ 42 - The planting of oysters in the soil covered by water owned in common by the People of the State is not different in principle from that of planting corn upon dry land held in the same way. Both are for the purposes of cultivation and profit; and if the State, in the regulation of its public domain, can grant to its own citizens the exclusive use of dry lands, we see no reason why it may not do the same thing in reepect to such as are covered by water.

It was there argued that a state law which authorized a corporation to establish stock-yards and slaughter-houses in and near New Orleans, and prohibited all other persons from slaughtering cattle or keeping stock-yards elsewhere, within an area of about.
Էջ 6 - The above facts and figures may well be used in argument to substantiate the claim by many people that the time has arrived when our beloved Partridge is of far more value to us while living than after he is dead.
Էջ 20 - Brunswick both have moose and deer and offer much the same opportunity foxhunting, but the fee in New Brunswick is $30, or exactly twice that in Maine. The tendency at the present time seems to be in the direction of a license of $25 for big game and $10 for game birds, both good throughout the. State. The only States in which county licenses still prevail are Florida, Georgia. Iowa. Maryland, South Dakota, and Washington. In Colorado they are also issued to nonresidents hunting birds.
