Black vs. White-

Four or five persons, male and female, were last week tried in our Court, upon an indictment charging them with being negroes, and with having come from another State into this contrary to the statutes made and provided in such cases. Their genealogy was thoroughly investigated and their features and complexions rigidly scrutinized, but the evidence was insufficient to identify them with the African race, and they were acquitted.
