that tEvrte's epe~-ch had in it more Lrtl thisn
law, inure rhetoric than Ilgi', and more inte!.
lectual p rtoterhni's than either. tie argued
that the prtl idenlt hid h i right to construe laws,
nrid that tihe 'uprcee tirirt had no possible juris
idrtion in the case. He narrated Lincoln's s.
aer.inatlon and incildents from the fugitive slave
law and its operaiions. He aid the gentle.nus
who opened this case claired thia: the
president may jnhicially construe the I
I onstitution f,,r hiself, anrid may determine
whether your laws are passed under the Constitu.
r i. tin. and whether he shall execete them. Mr.
lirgham repeated lthi, that it night ibe buried tit
the hearts of the setirtis. i'he laws were only
to be executed if it lleased Ilie Highntess Andrew
J Inrie n, hirt kitie of thf ittited rStates. If the
preelde'.t anll do this, as ineisti t on by hia advi-.
i* catet, Mr. It. sllaited that the ('Constitution, whilh
we had been taught to revere as the bulwark of
t ouir liberties, is a countlt tint which invi'ju vi,
l lation of the law, not obedieice to it; anid
h he insisted further, that if senattrs, by

a endless chaos and anarchy. No matter what
Sdemsagg Rne may say about I'. out of this charn
ber the issue is anarchy in this land, and the re
cording argel of hittory is ready to trace it.
That is all of it. It is the head and front of An
T drew Johuls, 's offending that he has assumed to
himself the I rerogative of interpreting th Constl
tution and deciding upon the laws for himself. In
if spite of all the law) era' tricks, in sa[ite of all the
technicalities, this was it. With all respect to
rt senators and to the able counsel, after the weeks r
and weeks of discussion on this case, if there is a
one man who does i:t understand this simple
iroposition, then God in his inrinlte wisdom has t
denied him reason.

It is poaitlivly asserted that the following con- t
vereation is subrstantially correct, and that it fore
shadows Wade's policy. A few eveninlgs sine
Wade was approached by a prominent radilcl
congressmanso, who said: "I regret to see the
ininrinent danger which exists of a confl-t bi
tween tie waittes and blacks of South Cia-inia,
and Itope some measure will be adopted to pre
vent it. '
Wade-" That can eas:ly be done. We must t
keep euflicent troops teere, sir. Troops wil a
('ongresmtnan--" ut our Northern friends are
becoming impatient under the tearful expenses i
r.f a standing armry. They may refuse to be
taxed for such a purpose much longer."
Wade "You are quite right in supposing the
North restless and impatient under tax ti in. bhilt t
this we will avoid by regnirinrr each State to 'aIp
port the armiy kept within her own territory ani ,
tils will relieve our fr,-nds entirely of the bur- i
den, if trese Southern rebels won't behave ti
theurmselves the) must bi maide to pay the exp--ln
ses of keeping peace within their borders. bu:h,
sir, will lie our policy."''
With this lipositive enanniaton the rai al ex
pressed ito.elf s.tistield tti inimateld a
'doubt ser to its practical workliita4 as the ,i ui h

Club will give '"Jack Cade " at the Naitiral
Theater to morrow night. The gentlemen who
are to perform this celebrated drama of Con
rad's are preparing themselves elaborately to
render the play, which is unique in itself as rep
resenting the hero so differently from what he is
represented to have been by English historians
and by Shakeepeare, in the mst effective manl
ncr. -He who is to impersonate JIack ic'te has
taken pains to acquire a thorough historical t
knowledge of the character, and will perform the
part oo anuior-e, believing, as he does, in the cor*
rectness of Conrad's conception.
The grand sacred concert to-morrow night, at t
the St. l.nis Cathedral, will be performed by a
combination of musical talent, vocal and instro
men'al, such as is rarely naseimblcd fur putu.ic

dietinguithed profes'lonally as mnusiians, 7.ll be b
resaciated amateurs, no'ed in private circles for
their high attainments in the melodious art. A
sermon will also be delivered on the occasion by

who came here last fall with Archbishop )din. f

When the three municipalitles were united in
one body, the consolidated corporation assumed
all the debts of the former, together with those of a
the general council. The aggregate liability then t
became a debt due by the new corporation, but a
when it levied a tax to pay it. that became a debt v
due to the city. payable to it by the taxpayers. p
and not pe)able by them to the holders of the a
bonds. It b the same with the railroad debt. (On t
subscribing to the stock the city issued its bonds
In payment thereof, and it imposes an sanual tax
to discharge the intererst, which tax is payable a
ditectly to itself, and is levied and collected in its
Sown name. These assessments, therefore, are
debts due to the city in the same sense that taxe,
are, which are levied to defray the ordinary ex
perses of the corporasi n..
N< r is there any distinction in regard to its
liability between those of isc creditors who are 1
bondholders and any other. Whether it be on ier
a bund or a crntract to clean and repair the
streets, or an ob'igsation incurred for any other .T
purpose, the d. bt is payable in cash or legal t
tel der notes. Hence the fact that its debt to the 1.1
b(ondhoiders can be discharged only by payment ti
in cash, has no force in the controvrsy before
le. ilnasmuch as its other debts can be discharged e
in no tother way.
It is contended, however, that an ordinance o
peased in 1855 required all taxes to be paid in as
money. This is true; but wheno the city. iu ItPsl.
c, nmecced issuing its notes for circulation, it
declared them to be receivable for all does and
takes tpayabte under its uasessments, and it has
made the saime declaration on several occasions n
since that year. Good faith requires that it should
not withdraw from its stipulations, and when it d
i-rues its notes as currency, or, in other words, as h
in-C ey. it its estipped from saying it is not money,
and nust receive it as such. Whether the attr. P
uty's fee is five per cent. or five per cent. per
an.unm, IS a question I do not solve. All parties ci
interested are bound by the judgment as it stands, p
and that gives the attorney five per cent. only.
For there reasons let the rule herein taken be
made ablolute, and let the sheriff be required ti o
receive the fnnds tendered to him by the defend 'r
ant on the td day of April. lt;,, in satisfaction a

Judge Howe, besides charging the inquest upon
those matters which he is specifically required by
law to instruct them, observed: LI
"The obligations which you have assumed are
specifically described in your oath of offi:e. By
that oath you are bound to inquire diligently into

that your prdeedings should be conducted; to
keep your mmda free from any sectarian or po St
Itial bias; to present no one through malice, and pa
to leave no one unpresented through fear, favor at
or hope of reward.
"If you carefully rt.serve this oath you cannot or
fail to do your duty : but if you should disregard ar
its provisions you would not only do violence to A
) our consciences, but give an anxious community
just cause of regret and distrust." w
The judge also referred to the practice of using
this court, through criminal prosecutions, for ern
bezzlement, breach of trust and false pretouses,
is an instrument to enforce the collection of
debts, when actually there was no violation of jg
pertal laws, and said upon another subject : t
"We have, as you are aware, statutes upon the
sutbject of bribery and extortion in oBce,to whiuh
I would also call your special attention. It must
be a subject of profound regre: to all good men
