Supreme Court.  “…if the Bill of Rights in this State be not a dead letter, and the law not operative, and justice not outlawed  — there can be no  doubt, it seems to us, that it will be in favor of the plaintiff, and therefore against an odious complexional caste which ought not to be tolerated in any land, whether Christian or Pagan.”
