■ ■ mi—— .1.11.1 . ‘ l l .•■) n ii Impoilaiii Decision—Negro ('lit zmsliip- Relow wo give an important commnni cation from I lie State Department, in re ference to a much vexed question—the cii izenship of free negroes. Jt is address ed to 11. 11. llicc, C’leik of 1 lie Superior Court of New Voik, through whom some tree negroes (soreimders) who were about to go to Europe, made application for passports : Dr.i'AimiF.NT of .Stati:, ) Washinciton, November 4. 11. 11. Wick, Esq., New Vork City— Sir: Vour letters of the 2'Jtli ultimo, and 111 instant, requesting passports for eleven colored person#, have been receiv ed, and I am directed by the Secretary to inform you that t he papers transmitted by you do not warrant the department in complying with your request. A passport is a certificate that the per ron to whom it is granted, is a citizen of the United Mates, and can only he issued upon proof of this fact. In the papers which accompany your communication, there h no satisfactory evidence that the persons for w hom ’Jon request passports ore of this description. They arc repre sented in your letter as “colored,” and described in the affidavit as “Mark,” from which statements it may be fairly inferred that they ore negroes. If this is so, there will he no doubt that they are not citizens of the United Stales. The question whe ther free negroes are such citizens is not now presented for the first lime, but has repeatedly arisen in the administration of both the National and State govern ments In 1821 a controversy arose as to whe ther free persons of color were citizens of the United States within the intent and meaning of the nets of Congress regula - ting foreign and coasting trade, so us to be disqualified to command vessels ; and Mr. VViit, Attorney Ucnoml, decided Unit they were not ; and moreover, held that the words, “citizens of the United States,” were used in the acts of Congress in the same sense us in the constitution. This view is nlso fully sustained in a recent opinion of the present At'orncy Ccnornl. The judicial decisions of the country are to the same effect. In Kent’s Com mentaries, vol. 2, p. 2 7*1, it is staled that hi 1333 Chief Justice Dagger, of Connec ticut, held that free blacks are not “citi zens” within the meaning of the term as med in the Constitution of tlie United States, and the Supreme Court of'lemics see, in the ease of the Stale against Clai borne, held the same doe:fine. Snell being ihe construction of the con stitution in regard to free persons of color ii is convinced that they cannot he regar ded, when beyond tins jurisdiction of Ihe government, as entitled to the full rights <>l citizens; but the Secretary directs me to sav, that though the Department, could not certify that such persons nt’e citizens j of the United Slates, yet, if satisfied of the truth of the fuels, it would give a icr tiiicute that they were born in the United Stales, and free, and that the government thereof would regard it to be its dn.y to protect them if wronged by a foreign gov ernment, while within its jurisdiction for a legal and proper purpose. I am, sir, respectfully, Vour obedient servant, J. A. THOMAS, Assist, beo'y. Unlnwlm Wine. I lie Augusta Constitutionalist of the 2il inst-, says : 1 On Friday last Mi'. A xt, of Crawford villc, already favorably known in Georgia as a wine producer, exhibited at the store of Thomas I*. Stovall Cos., some speci mens of wine made by him from the Ca tawba grape, grown in Georgia during the years 1853 and 186t>. Thero were ♦wo samples of the vintage of ISSO, and one of that of 1836—a1l known as Dry Cat nwlm. Several connoisctirs were pre sent and smacked their lips over these wines, besides several others, who, though unassuming upon Inis abstruse subject,, know a good article when they elosc down on it ; Mr Axts wines bore the test tri umphantly. I hose of 18f>li were limpid mid pure, having scarcely the suspicion of sediment about them. The flavor was pronounced excellent—of good body and fruity taste The wine of 1565 was uni versally considered the best, having im proved by time. This demonstrated that native wine, of the Catawba grape, will keep with us, when properly made. A bottle of hongworth’s Dry Catawba, of ♦ lie vintage of 1832, was opened at the same time, and proved to be of excellent quid t.y. This further demonstrated the same fact. Mr. Axtlias achieved for himself and for the South a great result, in (lie suc res ful introduction of Ibis important Inaiieh of industry into this State, ll s wine we would place in the very front rank of American wines of the same class equal to the best Dry Catawba from liongwortli’s or Wcrk’s cellars. Acquittal optiie Fuse-State Fris oneks i n Kansas— The telegraph a lew days since conveyed inlonnatioo that lit teen prisoners tried before the Court of Kansas had been acquitted on the origin al charge of treasonable resistance to the 1 1 s, but recommitted for trial oa other (barges. It appears by a letter from Law rence, under date of the Bdi inst., that on ly seven of them were thus recommitted, ♦ tie rest being discharged.

Make Known your Business. ‘I he merchant who eschews advertising as an unnecessary expense, is ostensibly incapacited for his business. The ex. peine of making known where you live, what you have to sell, and the manner you propose to deal with all those who j may patronize you, is quire insignificant in comparison to the benefits derived. Farmers always consult the papers to find out where they, wi.heut a tiresome ! search, can find the exact articles they ; want ; and therefore those who have j their “ light hid under a bushel ” are al ways hindmost in attaining the great de sideratum of every merchant—pecuniary success. Our renders will readily boar witness j that our leading men in every branch of i trade are liberal patronizers of the press J They, with a perception and liberality ; woithy of imitation, avail themselves oi the use oi printers’ ink and become 1 wealthy in a few years. On the other ; hand, those who go on the “ o ! d fogy” principle, soon find themselves with a i stock of old goods on hand, and fewer j customers than they desire ; a.ul in nine i eases out of ten, they become bankrupts, j Wo throw out these suggestions with i no other view than lo benefit those who | still labor under the strange infatuation that it is too expensive to advertise.— Co lutubus Sun.

The pis tol used on the occasion was an eight-inch barrel, which discharged nine balls in ra pid succession. Tiie Colonel fired the arm twenty seven limes, making a num ber of shots which would do credit to a rifleman. He first fired at an eight inch diameter target at one hundred yaids, putting cine balls inside the ring.” He then moved back to a distance of two hundred yards, and fired nine balls more hitting the target seven times. He then moved back one hundred yards tutther a distance of thiee hundred yards horn the mark, and placed five ot the nine ball inside the ling, and hitting the ‘'bull’s eye” twice.

His next step will be to bet “aH the hair off his head ’* France and England. Appearances indicate that those two great powers of Europe, are about to dis solve their relations of peace and amity with each other, now that they have sf i lenced the thunders of the great Russian bear. But recently Iter Majesty, Queen Victoria, was all urbanity to Napoleou— she coquetted with the Frenchman, Eug lisli woman that she was and is, with a spirit that would have done credit to any French woman, in His Majesty’s own do minions, all the world being surprised at her successful political flirtation: Napo leon was so well pleased at it, that be did not hesitate to sacrifice his thousands of Frenchmen before Sebastopol for the mere glory of the thing, and treasure too was expended with the same liberality.— The cost of all this undertaking is uow being counted up, and when compared with the profits derived from it, France finds out that it has been a one-sided af fair throughout- The war over, ami Vic toria is now an English Queen, with uo French proclivities, her ]>eople the same as of old, looking upon France ns their natural enemy. The Ikuiriog of England is therefore haughty in tin- extreme to wards France and France evidently feels it. Nor is France at all disposed to sub mit to any cool treatment at the hands of England, t-he will submit to no insults, and between these two powers there must bo no middle ground occupied- It is ei ther with the Frenchman, |*euce or war. V.'hat though the Bank of France, or her “Credit Mobilier,” is in a pinch at this particular crisis of her affairs: still France wi 1 expend millions upon millions, rather than England shall triumph over her.— It is a Bonaparte that is Emperor of France and tiie blood lias no likiug for England, as long as St. Helena, that rocky island, and the prison of the elder Bonaparte, occupies its place in the ocean. Unless, therefore, some great change takes place in the temper of these two great powers, towards each other, Fren* h meu and Englishmen may “look out for squalls.” On this side of the Atlantic, we shall pos ibly be calm observers of an other struggle between the crowned heads of Europe, during which Republican In stitutions will advance, and Republican principles go on triumphing over all op position in both hemispheres. “Somoto it be.”— Examiner.

Sunday in New York. — According to the New York Express, the Now York Sunday is becoming more like that of Fu rls than that of an American city. ‘The Express says that on Sunday last, the up per part of the city looked not a little like race course. All sorts of .vehicles were out ; grog shops free aud open; target firing and gunning doing a large business, aud at night, dance houses and free concerts lively and noisy till a late hour.

A Glancing Shot. — At Harrison Dake, Wisconsin, lately, a sportsman, ou shooting at a dock in the lake, was horri fied to see a man spring forward and fall on the beach near by.
