The New York Anti-Renters.
We observe that the highest Court of New York has pronounced a decision which gives a final quietus to the agitations of the Anti-Renters.
Theirs has been an old and fiercely disputed quarrel.
, the eminent Judge
by whom the final decision has been made, is a native of the county of Columbia
, which has been the scene of so much discord.
The Anti-Rent spirit is older than the Judge
; it was quite vigorous, as long ago as he was a law student, and manifested itself in a most pugnacious form when Martin Van Buren
was a young lawyer.
We are glad to hear that it is at last knocked in the head.--May New York emerge ultimately from her conflicts with the whole disorganizing tribe of Anti's
as successfully as she has at last done from that of Anti-Rent!
