Tennessee Suit against the State Kail
UKPORT OF THE SENATE COMMITTEE.
Your Committee, appointed by a resolution
of the Senate, in accordance with the re
commendation of his Excellency the Govern
or, contained in his message, in relation to
suits, by certain citizens of the State of Tenn
essee in the Courts of that State, against the
State of Georgia, for alleged damages claimed
to have been sustained by those citizens, fail
ing to chip promptly, and for unseasonable
detention of produce and merchandise owned
by said citizens, aud registered for shipment
or transportation over the Western and A thin
tic Railroad,have had those suits, the evidence
and proceedings had therein, under considera
tion, and beg leave to make the following re
To have a proper understanding of the
question un ler consideration, it will be neces
sary to examine the Legislation of the Stale
of Tennessee, conferring on the State of Geor
gia, the right to const net a part of the West
ern and Atlantic Railroad in that State.
The State of Tennessee by an act of her
Legislature passed January 14th, 1833-granted
to the State of Georgia the right to extend
and construct the Western and Atlantic Kail
Road from the Georgia lino to the Tennessee
river, with all the privileges, rights aud im-
Jnnnities, and subject to the same restrictions,
as far as they are applicable as were granted
by the State of Tennessee to the Iliwassee
Railroad Company. ‘I he Sta e of Tennessee
by an act of her Legislature passed February
3d 1846 —conferred upon the State of Geor
gia, so far as the Western & Atlantic Rail
road is concerned, all the rights and privil
eges and immunities, with the same res’ric
tions as were conferred by the State on the
Nashville and Chattanooga Railroad Compa
ny. By virtue of the privileges conferred by
the acts, the State of Georgia constructed
portion of the Western and Atlantic Railroad
in the State of Tennessee, upon the terms
specified in the above recited acts. Your
committee are of the opinion, that the State i
of Georgia by accepting the terms, privileges
and immunities, as well as the resolutions spe
cified, become liable to be sued in the Courts
of Tennessee, and consented to waive so much
of her sovereignty, as to authorize suits to be
brought in those Courts, tor causes of action
arising in the State of Tennessee, for injuries
default, or negligence on the part of the Agents
< f the Western and Atlantic Railroad. Your
committee arc of the opinion that the causes
of these suits originated for the want of a suf
ficient equipage of locomotives and cars to
transport the business of tlie road. In the
year 1852, the amount of produce offered
lor transpotation over the Western & Atlan
tic Railroad was very large, and the facilities
of the road for doing a heavy business was
very limited. The road was mainly depend
ent fur frieght cars, on the Georgia, Macon A
Western and Central Railroads, which Roads
to some extent claimed and exercised the right
to prescribe the quality of frieghts transported
in their respective cars. In consequence of
the exercise of iliis right, great difficulty
arose in transporting the frieghts over the
road in the order of their registry, and most of
the suits submitted to our examination were
•predicated on a claim for damages in behalf of
the plantiffs for non-shipment of produce, reg
istered by them for transportation over the
road, within a reasonable time, and in the or
der of their registry. Annexed to this report
is a Statement of the number o f suits brought,
lbr what brought, of the amount claimed, and
of those determined, how much recovered to
gether with a brief of the evidence, in those
cases, and the proceedings had therein. The
suits have been brought not against the State
of Georgia, as defendent, but against the
Western & Atlantic Railroad, which, your
committee consider irregular and erroneous,
inasmuch as there is no such natural person as
the Western & Atlantic Railroad, neither has
there been created by the Legisla.ure of G or
gia or Tennessee, any such artificial person or
corporation, for all the rights, privilege* and
immunities conferred by the State of Tennes
see; were conferred upon the State of Geor
gia; and not upon a company called the West
ern Sc Atlantic Railroad. 4he Western &
Atlantic Railroad, is not a Company or Cor
pordtiou -but simply the line of a Railroad,
extending from the city of Atlanta to the ci
ty of Chattanooga, and is the property of the
State of Georgia; consequently, we are of the
opinion that there is and was, no defendant
iu these cases, and the proceedings had here
in, were, and are void as against the State of
Georgia, and the jndgmets had therein of
no binding force or efit-ct upon the property
of the State of Georgia, situated in Tennessee
or elsewhere. Most of the cases decided,
have been determined by submission to arbi
tions. Your committee would recommend,
that the cases still pending, lie vigorously de
fended in the Courts of Tennessee; and that
no more of them be submitted to arbitration.
Your committee would further recommend
that the Road be equipped in srich a manner
as to enable the agents to transact the buff
ness offered, with dispatch and promptness,
which we believe would largely increase the
profits of the road, and greatly benefit the
citizens of the State residing on that line of
the road. We would further recommend, that
a freight list be established, graduated in the
distance, which freights are carried over that
Road. l r our Committee are divided in opin
ion upon the question, as to whether Georgia
ought or ought not, to sell, or dispose of that
portion of the Western A Atlantic Railroad
lying in the State of Tennessee; and upon
that subject, beg leave to m iko no further re
All of which is respectfully submitted.

Messrs Editors.—As “Southern Rights,”
in the Republican of the 13th inst., desires in
formation of the whereabouts of ‘Mr Seward,
during the last ballot for Speaker of the House
of Representatives,’ I propose imparting that
information, without questioning the patriotic
(?) motives actuating him.
Mr. S. was in Georgia attending to some
very urgent business; but before leavimg
Washington City he ‘paired off’ with a mem
ber supporting Mr. Hanks for Sp akcr, lienc ■
the Son h nor the First District receiving the
least injury by his absence, o ould it no> be
better for ‘Southern Rights’ to inquire by
what peculiar coincidence Messrs Trippe and
Foster were found voting with the celebrated
‘.Joshua Uhidings ? Would it n t be better
for ‘Southern Rights’ to l-sun h s ominous
warning to the people of Georgia when acts :.re
committed —arts m cessarv t> iuves ! Ration
and if fonnd injurious to the South, then to
receive that punishment which they merit.
But I cannot say this forever picking at one
who, whenever the issue became important or
depended upon his individual efforts, was al
ways found ready for the eonfl'et —I re eat, I
cannot say I admire this course, especially
when one is led to believg* that hostility to the
individual, and not a too overweening jealou

Must Mr. Seward inform ‘Southern Right-,’
on every occasion, when he is called off from
Washington City, or about vis ting his home,
to first obtain his consent, that the First Dis
trict of Georgia may not be awoke from that
peaceful repose consequent upon a* recent
political conflict, with the startling sound of
word ‘look’! Must Mr S. be responsible f>r j
‘Southern Rights’ want of information, when ‘
it is a notorious fact that the reason of his ab
sence at the taking the vote on the Nebraska i
bill was in consequence of his sick family ?
Did not his competitor for Congressional ,
honors, in the late canvass, repeatedly present 1
tie's matter to the people on the hustings, and
was Ire not always informed that, the impera-;
live demand of a sick family hurried him away, i
not, though, befo e lie ‘paired off’ with a, .gen

These are facts, well known, I presume, at j
least should be known, especially to political;
Mr. S. has never been know n to neglect his ;
business. Had such been his character, the;
city of Savannah would never have recciv j

atinnh river from its mouth to that city; and
her citizens would now, no doubt, be laboring:
under the burden of taxation to meet that
amount. I advise ‘Southern Rights’ to look :

From the Federal Union.
In the present alarming crisis of the conn
try, what should be done to beat back the
aggression of anti-.-.lavery fanaticism, and if
possible to prevent a dissolution of the Union?
Allow me to answer the important question.—
The friends of the Constitution everywhere,
and especially the friends of the constitutional
rights of the Southern States, should unite,
as with the voice of one man,forgetting all for
mer party i.-snes, an 1 let our enemies see and
know how vain and delusive are their hopes
of keeping us waring upon each other, upon
exploded and insignificant issues. Let us re
gard the man who would continue such Givi
sions among ourselves, at this time, as our
open enemy—as an emissary of the unholy alli
ance of New England, Old England, and
French Abolitionists. At a time like tli s, no
true patriot will bo found laboring to keep
alive tiie foul Demon of party strife t t e

otherwise? How can a Southern statesman
any longer give the cold shoulder to President
Pierce's administration ? We owe if to our
selves, as well as to our noble, generous, pa

Importaiit Decision'.—At its present session,
says the Journal A Messenger, the Supreme Court
in the case of the Macon & Western It. R. Cos., vs.
Melinda Wynn, by her next friend ; decided that
in case where a collision occurs between Hie rail
road train and a traveller on the highway, and both
parties are in fault, and the plaintiff in the action,
can avoid the fault of the defendant in the exer
cise of ordinary care, and does not do so, the plain
tiff cannot recover. The decision reverses the
judgment of the Court below. We give publicity
to the judgment in this case, because it is of great
practical importance to our numerous Railroad
Companies, and the public at large.

Scene in the Georgia Senate.
An interesting episode occurred in the Sen
ate on Saturday afternoon, in the debate on
the bill for the sale of the Western and Atlan
tic Railroad. Our reporter gives but a faint
-ketch of it, though it is substantially cor
reet as far as it goes.
u hen the provision prohibiting citizens
north of Mason and Dixon’s line from taking
stock in the proposed Western and Atlantic
ailroad Company was under consideration,
Mr. Pone made an impai-sl nod and spirit
stirring - ppe.nl io the patriotism and conserva
tism of the S utli n tto Incorporate such a
feature in its policy. He denounced it as
sectional, illiberal, and impolitic. He refer
red to the true and tried national men of the
Norr. , friends of the C-onstituth n, and sup
porters of the equal rights <1 the outli in the
Unimi Tie argnaed that the amo influence

Territories opened to them equal participation
with the N rtli in its settlement were still at
work in the North, and were gaming strength
there —that a healthy react in was going on
in our fa > or, and in behalf of con-titutional
principles, and that at this time an attempt,
to revive geographical lines, nd inert ase -sec
tional animosities, would come with an ill
grace from a Southern St to—from die tate
of Georgia, which had warmly approved ol the
abrogation of that sect on 1 d:v sion, the Mis
souri compromie Hue—w’ ieh the Nebruska-
Ivansas bill accomplished, lie spoke of Gen
eral Pierce in terms of commendation as a
President who lmd proved himself a nation
al man and sound and reliable on the question
of slavery. He had proved himself a friend
to those Constitutional rights so \itally dear
to the South and urged he diseharg
ed so nobly the duties of his high positim , the
South should fel it to be her pride and her
duty to strive to soothe the sectional irritation
that was unhappily prevailing. !he provision
under consideration was a step towards a dis
solution of the Confederaeyand iato.-tine strife.
It should be the ahn of ev ry Georgian who
loved his country, to seek to avert that result
as long as could lie done consistently with the
rights and honor of our State and section.
At the allusion to Pr.sident Pierce, the
Senators on the democratic side could not be
restrained, but responded with plaudits
which were caught up in the lobby and g lle
ry, in a way to show unmistakably how warm
!y the conduct of President Pierce was appro
ved, and how strong was his hold of admira
tion on those present. Even some of the op
posite side of the Senate indicated their sym
pathy with the prevalent feeling
Senator Wel born, of Whitfield, in reply,
stated that if the exercise of the privileges
by Georgia of specifying to whom she would
prefer to sell her property, and whom she
would exclude from the list of purchasers
should be visited upon her with war and all
its horrors, ho would exclaim let it come.
As the Senator from Whitfieled is under
stood to lie a minister of tlm Gospel, a fact to
which Judge Cone alluded in reply, ti e latter
undertook to read a lecture to the Rev. Sen
ator for uttering sentiments s > little in unison
vith the teaching of his D vine Master, as dis
closed in the New Testiment, a book with
which tlieJnelge declared himself well acquaint
ed. Mr. Welborn interrupting, sud lie did
not know, before, the grave’ Senator, whose
head was whitened by sixty winters, had be
home a Bishop, to which the Judge replied,
though not a Bishop he knew a great deal
more of th ■ Bible than many of the Driest.
He then made an a pul against s- ctional
divisions and lines drawn by unfriendly legis
lation—deprecated war is not only the great
est calamity, bni as the greatest wickedness
and folly, lie expressed n hope that even in
the short remnant of his.days, lie should see a
