With some the 'dpposiie rale p'i«vailra and any other rule tnust brinp disciMit upon t oodntry which caHs'itaeff a commonwealth. I trust also that the people of Kansas will stand firm, and if need be that they will kiow how to die for freedom. Tliwe are many who sigh for a Thermopylae. They hare it now in Kansas for there u to be foiigbt the n e a t battle between freedom and slavei^—by the hallot-hox, I trust but I do not formt that all wbo destroy th<> ballot box, ibanly invoke the ea tridge Hex, J u d ic ia l . The opinion of Mr. Justice Cartis in the Dred Scott case is divisible into three parts: The first part discii^ea and negatives the objection taken to (he right of Scott to sue in the United States Court on the ground (bathe was a negro, and (herefiSiii incapa> ble of enjoying (he p r i r e l^ s of a citizen cf (be United States. ^ The i^«md part asBiimi|4[ for the par* pose of the ai^nment that Cot^ess has the Conrtitutional power of prohibiting Slavery in the Territories, maintains that under the facts o f (he case. ,Dred Scott an^ his family are free. TIm third and by far the most important part, is an answer to the extra-judicial de- «ial by the majority of the Court of any pniwer in Congress to prohiitit Slavery in ibe Territories This'denial on their part is wholly exfra judicial, because having de* cided that Scott had no right to appear be-relv. liisinly. iipofa your inHCtion ; con- Ecious of their mincrity. in oUr noble i>ti<ie they yM intend by'specioiia promises, bj money, by’^ c r e t bat pertect organizdtion. to b rinc’ovt their whole strength on the 'first Mondsy of April, truating in your su* pinen>-M for victory*.

T oronto, Msrcb 13. We lesrri the following particulers of the railroad accident at Hamilton from a gen' tli-man wbo left the scene of disaster this morning. . This accident occurred on the Great Western Railway, at the b rid « oyer the Dm Jardinea Canal, which is elevated some sixty feet above the water. The bridge swings, and it ia auppoaed that the train which passed for the East a short time before bad >^nnk the bridge jso much that the locomotive oi this traiii'was obsirncted by the abutments to such a degree that the pasaenger cars were raised up and thrown into the canal. Tbe train was the local accomodation from Toronto to Hatnilton. and left Toronto at 4 o'clock yesterday afiernoon. The number of passangeis was e.<itimated at^ fiom seventy-five to one hundred, of whom only fifteen were taken alive from the wmk. Hnd of these five have since died. The water in the canal ia eighteen feet deep, and all those not immediately killed were drowned. The engine end tender, with the engineer and fireman, were pitched headlong into the canal, and are buried twenty feet below the surface. The 'baggage car and two passenger cars are completelv shattered, and one of the latter turned boitom aidis npwerdi and nearljr enbmeq^ed. When onr informant arrived this morning the partiea were still busy in extricating the bodies from the wreck. In an out* house adjoining tbe siatitin house at Hamilton about fifty or sixty corpses of raeb women and. children were lying on one floor. No inquiry into tbe cause of the accident had yet been held. Most of the passengers wcrs from Ilam-ilton.

Mr. C. J . Bi ydgefl, tbe managing director of the Railway, Dr. Macklem, of Canada West, and Thomas C.
