Foreign born citizens and military duty.

Judge Swayne, of Memphis decided a few days since in the case of two men, we claimed exemption from military duty on the ground of foreign birth, that foreigners who are fronslant simply passing through the country, or remaining here temporarily, are example from military duty. But that persons who remain here, who make, this country their home, who, to use a technical term are ‘""’ are entitled to the same protection and subject to the same duties as native born citizens; and it makes no difference whether they are or are not naturalized. If this country is their domicil, they may lawfully be required to do military duty.
