Full Text Transcription

We call the especial attention of our readers to the Report and Resolutions of the Committee of the Legislature in regard to the judicial outrage known as the opinion of the U. S. Supreme Court upon the Dred Scott case. We understand the report expresses the unanimous judgment of the Republicans of both the Senate and House Committees, and we hope it will be sustained with the same unanimity by the Legislature. This is no time for mincing matters. The continued aggressions of the Federal Government in behalf of Negro Slavery must be met by the States in which the principles of Liberty yet survive. Ohio took the lead in 1855 in opposition to the Kansas Nebraska act, and it is very proper that she should again lead the column of Freedom in opposition to the doctrines recently promulgated by a Federal Slaveholding Court.
