A brilliant genius la writlnc, for the Kosoiuako
Star, a novelette entitled "Tho Georgia Gal, or
who mk vxj QoobtaaV
What the Wat did not Decide.
We aro indebted to Mr. CHAUNOF.Y C. BURR, tho
very fearlcaB and able editor of that sterling
magazine, The Old Guard, for a timely and power
ful reply to all the ignorant, vicious and un
manly boah which has recently been writton and
spokon upon tho toxt that "Stato sovereignty
ia dead, having been determined against by tho
Wo agroo with Mr. BURR, says the Richmond
Times, that the war has no more kilrea State
sovereignty than it has habeas oorpus, trial by
jury, or thoeo manly and splendid qualities of
head and heart which bolong to tho people who
failed in their great effort to achieve a distinct
nationality. "It is not in tho powor of war to
kill State sovereignty ; it can overcome it for a
moment, as a giant oan overcome a weaker man,
but can never destroy the principle, nor alienate
the right of sovereignty. States stripped of the
powor to exercise their legitimate and proper
sovereign rights, havo no moro lost thoir rights
than tho man who is robbed of all his property
loBoa the right to hold property. A man may
have rights whioh ho cannot for the moment exer
cise, booause of defeat, misfortune, or of some
wrong or illegal forco in his way; but does he,
therefore, lose tho sacred quality of his rights?
Doea he, therefore, passively sit down and consent
that he has boen transformed into a creature
without rights, and without manhood? No, cer
tainly, unless he be the veriest fool or coward that
over disgraced the human form. Beoauao a war
has for the hour overcome State sovereignty, aro
we therefore to acquiesce in this great crime
against liberty, and admit it to bo our deplorable
status for all time to come? Not unless tho war has
also made us a nation of sneaks and cowardB.
And evon admitting that, for the present moment,
we are thus cowardized and belittled by the war,
has the devil so far got possesbion or us that we
moan to lie down forevor in swinish rost and sleep?
No, in God's name, no I Rather let us cherish at
least so much of the pluck and dooency of man
hood as shall make ne trust the time will como
when wo shall arise in our wrath und seize this gi
gantio, monarchical, despotic, centralizing heresy
by the throat and assert again the liberty which can
never be lost except by our own weakness and
crime! It is the nature of sovereignty that it can
neither bo destroyed, alienated, divided, norgiveu
away. It is to the State what the will is to the man.
A Stato can uo moro loao or give away its sover
eignty than tho man can lose or givo away his
will. No war can so far kill State sovereignty
that it will not, during all futuro timo, havo tho
sacred and eternal right to hang whomsoever
has attempted its destruction. When old JOHN
BROWN made his attempt upon the sovereignty of
Virginia, all admitted that he was justly and
legally executed. There can never come a time
wheu Virginia will not have the right to admin
ister a similar punishment to any party violating
her sovereignty. Her. inability to enforce her
sovereign rights cauitot be quoted as proof to tho
'contrary. On tho other hand, that very inability
must be received as a presumptive evidenco that
hor people will never cease to watch and pray and
struggle to re-aaaort their sovereignty, and to
punish tho criminal violators of it.
ID this Stato for twelve months the strong hand
of the military subordinated civil to martial law.
Tho will of the soldier was omnipotent. It over
rode the organic as well as the statutory law of
the Commonwealth. It determined who ehould
and who should not hold office. It set aside con
stitutional elections, and ntterly ignored every
artiolo of tho bill of rights. It nullified aots of tho
legislature, disregarded the orders of the Execu
tive and the dccresB of the Judiciary. It assorted
and exercised the most rigorous censorship of the
press, suppressed publio journals, and imprison
ed editora at will. But this cxerciso of the most
absolute powers by the army of occupation did
not destroy a Bingle constitutional or legal right of
tho Virginia citizen. It did not chango tho charac
ter of our State Government, nor permanently
disqualify any gentleman who was excluded from
office by order of the military. With the Presi
dent's proclamation of peace wo were at onco re
habilitated in thoso rights which martial law
denied us for twelve months.
As soon as tho proclamation of peace announc
ed our liberation from the thraldom of the sword,
with tho noble m animosa of a free peoplo we
straightway assorted thoao rights. Nowhere wna
thin assertion of our oivil rights more speedily
than in Richmond. The late .charter election
show that our people.did not rogard some of our
beat citizens as disqualified, from .holding offices
beoauao they were not acceptable to the military
! Tho war has not "destroyed" a alhgle oivil or
political right, State or Federal, whioh ia guaran
teed by the Constitution and law? to the citizen.

Tho steamship City of Washington, from Now

Austria and Prussia had agreed to a mutual dis
armament and sottlemont of the German ques
tion; Austria maintaining, however, a very war
like attitude toward Italy. The situation became
so menacing in this respect that, just previous to
the departure of tho Peruvian, Prussia refusod to
disarm so long as Victor Emanuel was threaten
ed. It is said that Napoleon had informed the
King of Italy that, in the event of a war with
Austria, France will not lend bim sid. The Lon
don Times was hoaxed by forged dispatches, dated
at the Foreign Offioo in London, into the publica
tion of the news of the actual rupture of diplo

The armioB of Austria and Italy were on a war

INTERNAL REVENUE-IMPORTANT CIRCULAR.
Tho following circular has just boon issued after
the most caroful consideration:
. TREASURY DEPARTMENT, )
OFFICE OF THE INTERNAL REVENUE, >
WASHINGTON, May 5, 18U?. )
Three questions have arisen under the Intorual
Revenue laws respecting the tax upon sales of
stocks, exchange, bullion, coined money, bank
notes and other securities, viz:
First-Aro brokers liable to a tax upon theil*
salua of their own stocks, ?Vc, as well as upon
Bales of those belonging to others?
Second-Are bankers doing a general business
as such, and selling their own stocks, Ac, liable
to pay tbq duties imposed by the ninety-ninth sec
tion upon brokera and bankers doing business as
brokers, in addition to those imposed upon them
Third-Are baukers who sell not only stocks be
longing to themselves, but also those belonging
to others, to bo regarded as bankers doing busi
ness as brokers, and therefore liable to a tax upon
their Skioa ? *
The first two question?, liavo recently been con
sidered by the Supreme Court of the Uuited States,
and it has been decided by thom, first, that brok
ers aro liable to a tax upon their sales of their
own stocks, exchange, bullion, coined money,
bank notos, promissory notes and other securities,
as well as upon those belonging to others ;
socond, that bankers doing a general business as
such, making returns and paying duties, and taxes
imponed by law upon their capital and deposits,
who negotiate and sell Government securities as
agents of the Government, and who at the same
time buy and soil Government securities for them
selves, and do not for others, or for a commission,
are not liable to a tax upon such sales.
Tho third question has not boen directly adjudi
cated by the Court, as it has not been directly
brought before it. It has been the rule of the
office, however, that when a banker is engaged ia
Helling not only his own stocks, ?te, but stocks,
&c, for othora, for a commission, ho is a banker,
doing business as a broker, and is liable to pay a
tax on all his sales-sales of his own stocks, bonds,
Government securities, ?te, included. This seems
clearly sustained by the reasoning of the Court in
its recont decision, aud will bo regarded as the
requirement of tho law. Assessors and their as
sistants and Co.lectors and their deputies are
hereby instructed to proceed at onco to tho as
sessment and collection of such taxes as have ac
crued upou the sales of brokers, or of bankers
doing business as brokers, and winch still remain
unasscssed, or duo and unpaid.
(Sigoed) E. A. ROLLINS, Commissioner.
THE CHIEF-JUSTICE ON MILITARY LAW, IN VIRGINIA
HE DECLINES TO PRESIDE AT THE DISTRICT COURT
The United St&tes District Conrt convenes at
Norfolk, Va., to-morrow, Jndge Underwood pre
siding. Chief-Justice Chase deolines to preside,
until 140 can be assured that martial law is abro
gated in Virginia. As there have been conflicting
decisions in the War Department and by the com
manders of military departments as to the effect
of the peace proclamation with regard to the res
toration of civil law in the States lately in rebel
lion, the Chief-Justice does not feel that it would
be seemly for a Judge of the Supreme Conrt to
attempt to hold court whilst a doubt exists as to
whether martial law is abrogated or not.
A PROCLAMATION INTERPRETING THE PEACE PROCLA
MATION TO HE ISSUED.
I can say upon good authority that the Presi
dent does interpret the peace proclamation as ab
rogating martial law in tho districts where the re
bellion is deolared to have ceased in all matters
in which the Civil Courts have jurisdiction. It is
understood that a deolatory proclamation to that
effect will be iaoued by the President in a day or
THE PRESIDENT AND THE COLOBADO BILL.
The query .now is, will the President veto the
bill admitting Colorado as a State ? Some say he
will sign the bill because he has committed him
self in favor of the admission of that Territory in
a communication to Congress nomo weeks ago.
The Presidont did not in that message undertake
to decide any question involved. On the contrary,
ho unmistakably doolined to take upon himself tho
responsibility of deciding anything, and submit
ted the whole matter to Congress for its aotion, as
will be seen by reading the message, a copy of
which I now send :
To the Senate and House of Representatives:
I transmit herewith a commnnioation addrossod
to me by Messrs. John Evans and J. B. Chaffee,
as "United States Senators elect from the Stato
of Colorado," together with the accompanying
Under authority of the act of Congrese approv
ed the 21st day of Maroh, 1801, the people of
Colorado, through a Convention, formed a Con
stitution making provision for a Stato Govern
ment, which, when submitted to the qualified vo
ters of tho Territory, waa rejected. In. the sum
mer of 18G3 a second Convention was called by
tho Exeontive Committee of the several political
parties in the Territory, whioh ?ssembled at Den
ver on tho 8th of August, 1865. Ou tho 12th of
that month this Convention adopted a State Con-'
etitution, whioh was submitted to the people- on
the 5th of September, 1805. and ratifica by a mo?
jority of 155 of tho , qualified votors. The pro
ceedings in the second instance for the formation
of a State Government having differed in time
and mode bom those specified In the aotof Maroh
21, 1801, I havo declined to issue the proclamation
for whioh provision is made in the fifth section
of tho law, and thereforo submit the question far
the consideration and farther aotion of Congress.
WaVBBJNGTOfc, Jan. 12,186?.
It will be aeon that tilt? President, HO far from
"committing himsolf," positively declined to de
cido or intimate what cous&e ahould bo puraued,
and turned tho whole matter over to Congreea for
I still adhcro to my previously expressed belief
that tho President will veto the bill admitting
Colorado, on the ground of inaderjuatopopulation,
if on no other consideration. Tboro are not, pcr
hapa, twelve hundred women in tho torritory, and
consequently each voter in Colorado? doea not rep
resent the proportion of other citizens in the ter
ritory, that a vote docs in New York, for example
lu fact, aa has boon shown by Senator DOOUTTLE
and others, who nrgued the question in tho Senate,
nearly ali tho population of Colorado- are votera,
and couaoquontly tbo whole population ia but
little over the number of votore, aay aoven thou
Tho absurdity and injustice of placing: this email
community on an equal footing in power and rep
resentation in the United Statea Sonate, with tho
groat State of Now York, ia apparent ou tho faco
of the proposition. And yet, such is the effect of
the bill just paeeed in both branchca of Congress
and now awaiting the aotion of tho President.
NE8OTIATI0N8 FOB THE PUBOBA8E OP LOWE? OAt.'
It ia Btated that a negotiation of considerable
magnitude has just been concluded with the Mex
ican Minister here, which involves the cession to
certain leading American capitalists of nearly tho
en tiro peninsula of Lower California for coloniza
tion purposes, and to secure the development of
the extraordinary mineral wealthof that territo
ry. Tho Mexican Government retains an intoreat
in tho proceeds of tbo enterprise; but it ia under
stood that the sum advanced by the parties who
ha,vo secured the grant ia upward of a million of
dollars, which at tbia time will be of important
aervioe to the Liberal cause. The namea of tho

THE NEW OnLEANS^COTTON CASE.
Tho Now Orleana cotton case, which has been
on trial beforo United States District Judge Durell,
and in which a conQiot of civil and military au
thority baa grown up, has been brought officially
to the attention of tho President. By order-ol'
General Canby, the cotton in litigation was seized
by soldiers at tbo instigation of a party interested
in tho property, and the order of the Court waa
resisted. Judge Durell refuaed to proceed with
his Court BO long as'it was thus menaced by the
military. Tho President Ima directed the ?Secreta
ry of War to instruct General Canby to rescind the
order complained of, and to allow tue Court uure
