The Indiana Slave Case Decided

Indianapolis, Saturday, Dec. 5.

An immense crowd assembled in the Senate Chamber this morning to hear the decision of Judge Wallace in the fugitive slave case. He decided that he could not traverse the decision of the Commissioner, and that the negro must be remanded back to Slavery. The United States Marshal started in the evening with the negro for Louisville, where he will hand him over to Dr. Vallandingham. The case against Dr. Vallandingham was dismissed. The excitement caused by the decision of Judge Wallace was intense, and it was apprehended that the Marshal would experience considerable difficulty in endeavoring to place the negro on board the cars. No attempt at rescue, however, was made.
