    Smith v. Turner; Norris v. Boston, 48 U.S. 283 (1849),were two similar cases, argued together before the United States Supreme Court, in which it was adjudged (five to four) that States did not have the right to impose a tax determined by the number of passengers of a designated category on board a ship and/or disembarking into the State.

    They are sometimes called the Passenger Case or Passenger Cases.All the details are here
