Take that banner down, ’tis tattered! Broken is its staff and shattered! And the valiant hosts are scattered, Over whom it floated higk. Oh! ’tis hard for ns to fold it! Hard to think there’s none to hold it Hard that those who once unrolled it Now must furl it with a sigh. Furl that Banner—furl it sadly— Once ten thousands hailed it gladly, And ten thousands wildly, madly, Swore it should forever wave— Swore that fqcman’s sword would never Hearts like theirs ctitwinod dissever, Till that flag should flnnt forever O’er their freedom or their grave. Furl it! for the hands that grasped it; And the hearts that fondly clasped it, Cold and dead are lying low ; , Andr that Banner —it is trailing! While around it sounds the wailing Of its people in their woe., . For, though conquered, they adore it! Lovqthe cold, dead hands that bore it! Weep for those who fell before it! Pardon those who trailed and and tore it! But oh! wildly they deplore it Now who furl and fold it so. Furl that Banner ! true ’tis gory, Yet ’tis wreathed around with glory, And’twill live in song and story, Though its folds arc in the dust; For Its fame on brightest pages, Penned by poets and by sages, Shall go sounding down the ages — Furl its fold though now we must. Furl that Banner, softly, slowly, . Treat it gently —it is holy— For it droops above the dead, Touch it not—unfold it. never, Let it droop there furled forever, . ! For its people’s hopes are dead ! Suits Against Judges of Elec tion fur Rejecting a Vote- Judgment of Justice Forres ter—One Hundred Hollars lor Plaintiff In Each Case—Jus tice Forrester’s Opinion. In the cases of Alexander M. Briscoe the judges of election in the fourth precinct of the nineteenth ward, which were tried before Justice Forres ter by F. E. P. Drooke, Esq., for plain tiff. and H. Stock ridge, Esq., for de fendants, last week, the justice yester day gave judgment in favor of plaintiff for SIOO damages against each of the defendants, and : Iso delivered the fol lowing written opinion : .if These three several actions were in stituted before me by the plaintiff, Al exander M. Briscoe, to recover from each of the defendants, Samuel Feast Jr., Robert O. Waterworth and Arthur Mc- Clellan, the sum of one hundred dollars damages for injury sustained by the plaintiff, in that the defendants, being judges of election 1 of the fourth precinct of the nineteenth ward, did, on the 6lh November, 18G6, willfully and fraudu lently refuse to receive the vote of the said plaintiff, he having been duly reg istered and legally entitled to vote at said election. The defendants admit that the plain tiff was a registered voter on the list furnished them by the officer of rqgis-. (ration, and that they refused to receive his vote, hut contend that they arc jus tified in the.course pursued by them on ground that the plaintiff was. reported to be a disloyal mao, and when he pre sented himscll at the polls, and was put on his oath, he did not answer the ques tions propounded to him by them as judges of election in a satisfactory man ner. The defendants, in justification of their conduct, plead (in the language of the Court gf Appeals in the c:\se of Bcvard vs. Hoffman ct. ah, 18th Mary land Reports,. 479, &c.,) that they were “public officers acting faithfully and honestly In the discharge of their duties, and within the limits of their constitu tional power;” that “the law confided to them the duty of expressing judgment in the discharge of their functions,” and that the plaintiff “had a fair and honest exercise of judgment in his case, which is all the law entitles him to, antj al though the judgment may he erroneous and the plaintiff injured, it Is damnum aLsqiie injuria , for which no action lies.” Th .-se cases, having created A great deal of interest in the community, and the question involved in tlwm being of the highest importance, I have given to them the most careful consideration in my power within the limited time al lowed me to mature my judgment. The principal question raised iff the adjudication of these actions, and which is the gist of the controversy before me, is whether or not, since the law passed by the General Assembly for the regis tration of voters has been carried into effect, the judges of election have the right to judge the qualification of voters, and in the exercise of their judgment to exclude persons from voting whose names have been ontc'red on the list of qualified voters by the officers of regis tration ? It is apparent, from the language of the constitution, that the object of the framers of that instrument, in confcr ring power upon the General Assembly “to provide by law for a uniform regis- (ration of the names of voters in this State” (art. 1. sec. 2.) was “for the pre servation of the purity of elections,” ■ (art. 3, sec. 41.) Previously to the adoption of the constitution and the passage and carrying inth effect of the registry law, “the right of the citizen to vote—the question of qualification or disqualification of the person offering to vote—was committed to the judges of election, who were constituted quasi judicial officers, clothed with the power ,and discretion necessary for the perfor mance of the duty of ascertaining the facts that entered into the inquiry.”— Experience having demonstrated that this mode of ascertaining the status of the person who offered to vote was rad ically defective, and that the judges of election could hilt imperfectly discharge the duty imposed upon them, and that the ballot-box was being polluted in consequence of the defective manner in which the qualification of voters was determined, the framers of the constitu tion wisely provided for another mode of accomplishing the same end with better results, and the General Assem bly introduced the new system of ascer taining who to the right ofthe elective franchise by requiringall persons'claiming that, right to go before the officers of registration and have the same determined in advance of the time of holding the elections. Justice \Yei sel. of the Court of Appeals, in his opinion filed in the case of Anderson vs Baker* etal.,(uot yet officially reported.) in speaking of the new mode of ascer taining the qualification or disqualifica tion ofthe person claiming the right to vote, says : “It hits the advantage of as certaining before the days of election nh arc qualified to vote at the elections ichnt they (irrircT THc act providing for the registration of voters constitutes the officers of reg istration the sole and exclusive judges of the qualification of voters. They are required to cuter on the books of regis tration every person '■'•who shall satisfy them that he s qualified to vote under the provisions of the first article of the constitution and the laws of this State.” Upon them devolves all the duties for merly imposed upon the judges of elec tion, and they are clothed with all the powers formerly exercised by the judges of election iu determining the qualifica tion of voters. Justice Weisel says;. “The judges of election are, by this' means, relieved from duties which they could but imperfectly perform in the brief space of one day at the crowded polls of an exciting election.” lie further says, in alluding to the change effected by the passage of the registra tion act. that “the qualifications of the voters were the same t hen as now. They were Jmlgcd of then ly the judges of election, instead of aSnoir, ly the. officers of registration .” On this point Chief Justice Bowie, in his opinion, filed in the case of An derson vs. jßaker ct al,, says: “Under . the old system the judges determined the, qualifications or the voter at the polls; under the new, the registers as certain and enroll beforehand those whrt are qualified and those who are disqual ified.” It is perfectly clear from the language of the registration act, and the opinion ot the judges of the Court of Appeals who have reviewed it, that the officers of registration arc duly constituted and empowered to determine as to whether or not the person who presents himself for registration is qualified to be entered upon the lists of registered Ypterff. The constitution makes the proceed ing of the officers of registration, viz ; the list furnished by them (o fire jffdgcs of election, evidence of the qualification ofthe person registered to vote. The question is raised in this case as to whether or not the fact of the person being registered is conclusive evidence of his right to vote ? In my judgment, after the name of a person has 6ffce been entered on the list of qualified to r tors, such entry is conclusive evidence of his right to vote at all elections there after held until the registry list is cor rected in the manner prescribed by the fourteenth section of the registration act; that is, by registers appointed by the Governor. lam sustained in this , view by the opinion of Justice Cochran, filed in the case above referred to, who says : “We have found that the consti tution provides for ascertaining, by a registrat ion of voters, to whom the priv ilege of voting was extended, and that it clothed the officers charged with this duty, to the exclusion of courts and ju ries, with'the full power, and jurisdiction to hear and finally determine all ques tions as to the right of voting and regis tration. If this was not the case, if the judges of election could review the proceedings of the officers of registration, and were empowered to set aside their action by excluding persons from voting whose names were entered on the registry list, they could as well add to the registry list the names of persons excluded by the registers, or receive the votes of persops not registered, and by this means could virtually abrogate the whole registry law and defeat the very object for which it w is provided, to wit, the preservation of the purity of elec tions. I think it is perfectly clear, from the letter of the constitution and the act of Assembly for carrying the provisions thereof into effect, as well as from the decision of the Court of Appeals, that the judges of election are divested of all jurisdiction tn determining the qualifi cation of voters, and as this portion of the duty which formerly devolved upon them has been transferred to and is now performed by the officers f of registration, their only duties in conducting elections arc to receive the ballots of the persons > TERMS—SI.S3 IHI ADTAKCG whose names arc entered on the list of qualified Voters by the officers of regist ration—cxercisingdue caution to know that the person offering to vote is the identical person whose name is entered upon the list of qualified voters—and to certify the result of the elections in the manner prescribed by law. It is my'judgmcnt that the penalties prescribed by the registration act fbr a violation of the provisions thereof, and • of the first article of the constitution by the judges of election, were incorpora ted therein to prevent the judges of election from tampering with the rights of persons who have been duly regis tered, and that a refusal on the part Of the judges of election to receive the’ vote of a person whose name has bfectf duly entered on the list of qualified Vo ters by the officers of registration ren ders them liable to he proceeded a<rains£ for a violation of the provisions of said act. As to the question of the disloyalty of the plaintiff, which has been set up as a defense against these actions, and ground of justification for the conduct of the defendants in refusing to receive his vote, the fact of his having* volun teered in the military service’ of the United States, and having been honora bly discharged therefrom, is conclusive evidence of his right to have been reg istered. But if he was thoroughly dis loj'al, aad entirely disqualified to regis ter as a legal voter, and the officers of registration had placed his name on the list of qualified voters, and he made application to the judges of election to vote, they had ho power to refuse ttf receive his vote. If the officers of reg istration violated the law, they arc amenable to its penalties ; but the judges of election cannot constitute themselves a court of review to pass upon the ac tion of the officers of registration, or to convict the person registered of disloy alty to. the government. That is r 6 part of their duty in conducting the election. From the consideration which 1 hare been able to give this subject, I- am of opinion thatjtheplaintiff has been great ly injured by being deprived of hie right to vote, and that he should be in demnified for the injury which he has sustained. The right of which he has been deprived, iq the language of the Court of Appeals, “is justly esteemed as one of die most precious and valua ble belonging to the citizen, and cannot be too highly prized or too carefully protected.” It would be idle for courts' of justice to place so high an estimate upon the existence of a right, and yet fail to afford an adequate redress when •it is violated. The measure of damage awaftled should bo commensurate with the injury sustained; and. as no greater injury can he sustained by an American citizen than to be deprived of the right of enjoyment of the elective franchise, I believe it to he my duty to award dam ages to the extent of my j-nrkdietiotf,- and have, therefore, rendered judgment against each of the defendants for the sum of one hundred dollars and costs. It is supposed that the defendants these cases will appeal from the judg ment of Justice Forrester to the Court of Common Pleas. A Ready Answer. That eccentric preacher, Lorenzo Dow, was once stopping at a hotel in New Turk, kept by a man named Bush. Among the guests was a General Root. They occasionally made themselves irtef ry at Lorenzo’s expense. One day Gen. Boot began upon him thus : “Mr. Dow, you tells us a great deal about heaven. Now, I want you to tell me plainly what sort of a place heaven is.” With im perturbable gravity, the preacher replied “Heaven gentlemen, is a smooth, rich, fertile country; there isn’t a hmh ,or a root in it, and there never will be!” The Root and Bush subsided, and Mf. Dow Wasn’t further troubled. Suit Against General Butler.— B A suit has been commenced before the Supreme Court in New York, by John H. Lester, against General Butler, chat; ging him with false imprisonment and' with fraudulent conversion of property. The damages arc laid at one hundred thousand dollars for the first offense, and fifty thousand dollars for the latter. It is alleged that Mr. Lester received a free pass from Secretary Stanton dur ing the war to bring his family North. General Butler disregarded the permit and imprisoned him. It is said that the negroes of Mobile established a savings bank a short time since, and it got alongswimmingly until a circus came along, when the depositors drew all the money out in order to at tend it. A man being asked, as he lay sun ning himself on the gras what was the height of his ambition, replied, “To marry a rich widow with a bad cough.” The papers record the case of a young girl in Maine whose blood changed to sugar. We know some girls down this 1 way who are all sugar. The question, “Why printers do not succeed as well as brewers V* was thus 1 answered : “Because printers work for the head, brewers work for the stomach; and where twenty have stomachs only one has brains.” “I would not be a woman, for then I could not love her,” says Montague.— Lady M.
