We are pleased to record the fact
that Judge Willard has declared the
Bond Scrip Act unconstitutional and
void. On the 23d instant Judge
Willard announced his decree. IHe
declares as null and void the not of
the General Assembly under which
the scrip was issued-said act being
in contravention with that clause of
the Constitution of the United States
prohibiting tho States from issuing
bills of credit. As a consequence of
this decision, thO injunction hereto
fore granted against the receipt of the
scrip for tax, -and this issuing of it is
sustained and remains in full force.
The opinion of Judge Willard con.
olud.s in these words :
"Considering the not in its entire
aspect, as well as in its integral partr,
it is clear that the Legislature intend
ed that the scrip s'hould circulate as
money, and that for this reason the
provision of the act authorizing the
issue of scrip are in conflict with pro
hibitions of the Constitution of the
United States to the emission of bills
of credit by States. The act being
unconstitutional, it is void. So far
as it contemylates the issue of revenue
bond scrip it is unimportant, there
fore, to inquire whether the scrip that
was notually isued was conformable
to, and authorized by, the act. The
iij enetion heretofor3 issued must be
continued until the final hearing and
determination of the action."

The First Bale of New Cotton.
The first bale of now cotton was re.
ported by telegraph as having reach
ed Galveston a few days since. A
further dispatch from that city says
that the balo was sold on the 16th in
stant by Focke & Wilkins to Rich
ard & Hawkins at ninety-three cents,
gold, per pound. The New Orleans
Times notices the matter as follows:
The fancy price of 93 cents gold per
pound paid for the first bale of new
cotton received at Galveston must
have been predicated on the premium
of $500 offered for the first bale by
the St. Louis Cotton Association. A
bale of 400 pounds at 93 cente guld is
equal to about $420 currency. It the
holder of the bale receive the $500
prize and sell at the fancy price of 25
cents por pound, he will receive $600,
showing a profit on the transaction of
$180, less transportation and other
charges. But to scouro this lie has
to run some risks. Had the weather
been clear and ,warim, lhe might
have been preceded by a bale
from Louisana or Mississippi.
Three weeks ago we heard of
of parties at Vicksburg preparing to
rush forward a halo of new crop, and
the planter who sent the first bale to
this market last year was about n
king the effort to take the honor and
the price. The showery weather, how
ever, has dispelled their hopes and
we have heard of nothing farther
from them on the subject.
We have little or no doubt that this
Texas balo from the Rio Grand3 will
be technically entitled to the St.
Louis premium if it be first presented,
but rather suspect that, in offering the
price, our enterprising friends up the
river jontemplated cotton from tomc
part of the wide cotton region to the
business of which they aspire, and did
not imagine they would find a compo.
