-A Washington dispatch, of Friday, says :
"A.trick was played upon the House to-day by
Mr. Cessna, from the Committee of Elections,
who' had charge of the case of Wallace vs.
Simpson, contested election for representative
tciop the fourth district of South Carolina. The '
"indications when this case was called up be?
fore were that the opposition from members
of both parties to the admission of either can?
didate would be strong. Simpson was ineligible
under the Fourteenth amendaient to the con
slit ti tl ou, but he received the highest number I
of votes, and the committee reported that
Wallace ( Republican)) having received the
next highest tote is entitled to the seat. Mr.
Dawes, Mr. Paine, and others of the Republi?
can 6ide, and the Democrats generally,
argued that t'i? House had repeatedly de?
cided that the. disqualification of a candi?
date receiving a majority of the votes did not
entitle the one receiving the next highest
vote to a seat. Notwithstanding this general
opposition to giving the scat to Wallace, Mr.
Cessna, Just after the House convened,
and while members were in some con?
fusion and .?not paying attention, passed
up and had read at the Speaker's desk a res?
olution declaring Wallace entitled to the
seat. The vote was put, and a few voices-an?
swered In the affirmative-none in the nega?
tive-and Mr. Cessna obtained leave to make a
statement setting forth the facts of the case as
found in the report. This arrested the atten?
tion of the members of the House, and quite a
hub-bub was created on account of the sort of
snap-Judgment that had been taken while the
members were unaware of what was going on,
but it was too late, and Slr. Wallace was
The Outstanding Issues of the Bank of
the Stute of South Carolina.
As connected with the late important de?
cision of Judj&rCarpenter, relative to the
bills of the B?fck of the State of South Caro?
lina, and a3 foreshadowing the possible, we
may say the probable, effect of that decision
upon the early and final settlement of those
issues of the Bank, we propose to call atten?
tion to the case of Furnian vs. Nichol, lately
decided by the Supreme Court of the United
States, and involving the rights of the lull
holders of the Bank of the State of Ten?
In 1838 the State of Tennessee chartered
a bank in the name and for thc benefit of
the State, and pledged the faith and credit
of the State to its support It was further
provided by the charter " that the bills or
" notes of thc said corporation originally
" made payable, or which shall have become
" payable, on demand in gold or silver coin,
" shall be receivable at the treasury of the
" State, and by all . x-collectors and other
"public officers, i.? all payments for taxes
" and oilier moneys due the State."
By the new code of the State of Tennessee,
it was provided that tax-collectors should
receive in payment of taxes only such bank
notes as are current at par.
On the 3d August, 1866, Furman tendered
to Nichol, a public officer, in payment of
taxes, certain bills of the Bank of Ten?
nessee, issued prior to May, 1861. The bills
liaving been refused, Furman applied for a
mandamus, requiring that officer to accept
them. The petition for the mandamus did
not show when the bills came into the hands
The Supreme Court of Tennessee refused
the mandamus, and the petitioner appealed
' i the Supreme Court of the United States.
In this court it was held that:
1. The section of the charter of the bauk
above quoted was a contract in the nature
of a guarantee between the State and the
holders of the notes of the bank, and that it
was not in the constitutional power of the
Legislature t'j repeal the section, so as to
affect the notes which at the time were in
2. That thi3 guarantee is not restricted to
the person *vho receives the hill from the
bank, but attaches to th" note and yoes with
it everywhere, and invites every one having
taxes to pay to take it, aud obliges the State
to receive it in payment of taxes.
3. That this contract was not repealed by
the new code of the State of Tennessee,, and
that the court does not favor the repeal of
charter privileges by mere implication.
The Supreme Court accordiugly awarded
to the billholders the writ of mandamus,
requiring the tax-collector to take the bills
in payment of taxc3.
It appears that soon after the daffrof issue
(1361) of the bills in question, a disruption
or the government of Tennessee took place;
one portion of it maintaining its relations to
the Federal Government, and cluimuig to be
the government-another portion of it mak?
ing the same claim, and taking refuge within
the Confederate line3. This latter fraction,
to which the Supreme Court of the United
States applies thc term "insurgents," got
possession of, and took with it in its retreat,
the assets of "TheBauk of the Stale of Ten
" nessee," and, it is alleged, continued-tho
issue of bills in the name of that bank with
in the territory of the Confederacy. A3 to
the bills issued under 'these circumstances,
the court declines the expression of an opin?
ion ; a reticence which is' not of much conse
queuce to the holders ol bills of the Bauk of
the State of South Caroliua, inasmuch as
that Bank wa3 never placed in similar cir?
cumstances, and the late decision of Judge
Carpenter has established that its bills issued
after December, I860, are on the legal foot?
ing of those issued before that date.
The bearing of the decision of the Supreme
Court of the United States upon the entire
settlement of this vexed case of tho Bank of
the State of South Carolina, lies in the fact
that the clause of the charter of the Bauk
of the State of Tennessee, under considera?
tion, is identical with, and evidently a copy
of, a section of the charter of the Bank of
the Stale of South Carolina, and although the
late Appeal Court of this State took an op?
posite view of the law, the subsequent action
of the Mipreme Court of the United States
gives io tue billholders of thc Bank of the
State of Sou'h Caroliua ample redress under
the mandamus of the highest judicial tri
bunal of the country. Inasmuch as a large
proportion of i Im bills of the Bank of the
State of South Carolina have been absorbed
by the issue of bonds under the act of ISO'S,
and as the bills issued in 1863 aud 1861
will be subject to be heavily scaled, the
gross amount outstrnding of this State li?
ability canuot be very great ; but it will be
interesting to our readers to know the course
pursued by the State bf Tennessee in cir?
cumstances similar to those in which this
State may be placed.
Upon the publication of the judgment of
the Supreme Court in Furman vs. Nichol,
the Legislature of Tennessee promptly met
its obligations, by enacting that the tax
collectors of the State should receive the
bills declared to be valid iu payment of taxes,
and repealed its statutes containing contrary
provisions. To prevent, however, the em?
barrassment which would ari3e from the ne?
cessity of meeting this indebtedness at one
time (amounting to S3,500,OOO,) and with a
view of distributing the payment or the bills
over a series of years, it has been provided
llift the bills so received shall be reissued
and used as currency; upon each reissued
bill one-fourth of the par value of the bill is
declared, by a stamp upon its face, to nave
been paid. By this wise measure, the State
of Tennessee obtains an extension of four
years upon its debt, and the bdlholder se?
cures his end without injury to the public
Taken thc Back Track.
Senator Cain, a Methodist minister and
editor of the Missionary Record, gives his
Radical brethren, an exquisite example of
what is usually called "ground and lofty
Only a week ago, Senator Cain denounced,
with the energy of injured innocence, the
corruption of the Radical leaders- and the
manifold vices and follies of the Columbia
Ring. Nor was this any new outburst on
the part of this political parson. During
tiie last session of the Legislature he exhort?
ed the sinners to repent, and warned the
party that the Sirocco would come in the
heats of the dawning summer. The Reve?
rend Senator seemed to be thoroughly in
earnest, and he almost convinced the honest
people of the State that he intended to pass
a sponge over the record, and keep a clean
slate for the future.
But this fit of political piety has come to
an untimely end. In the Missionary Record
of Saturday, Senator Cain flings to the
breeze the name of Robert K. Scott as his
nominee for Governor for 1871, and urges
all the people to rally on the side of him who
has "for two years guided the destinies of
" this State with an unswerving hand, and
" has at all times sought to subserve the
" interest of thewh- '*? people." The "evi
" dent honesty " 01 Governor Scott is held
up to public commendation, while his "le
" niency" and "justice" are exalted to the
This, it will be admitted, is a very sudden
conversion, and we are curious to know
whether it was effected by a vermillion edict
or a green-back ukase, a " fat office" or the
"lifting of a mortgage "-which, unless ru?
mor be altogether wrong, has been "lifted"
more than once before. It will all leak out?
In a little while we may hope to know the
fee paid the senatorial acrobat for this last
proof of his astonishing political agility.
