THE TAXATION OF RAILROADS.
Decision of the SnprtiDj Con t of thc
Un ?tea States, that a Stale l an not J
Tax a Corporation which ls Exempi
ed from Taxation by its Charter.
m * -
xT^ The following desclslon rendered by the
United States Supreme Court decides, as we
are advised, the question o? the power ol this
s State to tax the South Carolina Railroad Com?
pany and other companies which, by their
charters, are exempted from taxation :
The Wilmington and Weldon R Ul road Com?
pany, Plaintiffs in Error, vs. Juhn A. Reid,
Sheriff, ?cc-In error to the Supreme
Court of the 8tate of North Carolina.
Mr. Justice Davis delivered the opinion or j
This ls a writ of error to the Supreme Conn j
of the State of North Carolioa, uod bi logs up
the question whether the recent legislation o?
the State concerning the collect loa of taxes,
ls, as.lt affects the plain tiff in error, in viola?
tion of mat provision ol tbe Constitution ol
the United Slates, which declares that DO
State shall pars any law Impairing the obliga?
tion of contracts. As early as 1833, the Gene?
ral Assembly of North Carolina incorporated
the Wilmington and Weldon Railroad Com?
pany, for the purpose of constructing a rail?
road in the State, and inserted a provision io
the charter "that the property of Bald com- j
pany and the shares therein shall be ex?
empted from any public charge, or tax what?
soever." It lias been so often decided by this
court that a charter of incorporation granted by
a State creates a contract between the State
and the corporators, which the State cannot |
violate, that it would be a work of supereroga?
tion to repeat the reason on which the argu?
ment is founded. It is irue that when a cor?
ie . poration claims an exemption from taxation,
lt must show that the power to tax bas been
clearly relinquished by tbe State, and If there
oe a reasonable doubt about this having been
done, that doubt must be solved in mvor ot
the State. (Tne Binghamton Bridge case, 3
Wallace.) If, however, the con traci ls plain
and unambiguous, and the meaning of tue
par t'es to it can be clearly ascertained, it is
the dary of the court to give effect to it, the
same aa If lt were a contract between private
persons, without regard to its supposed Inju?
rious effects upon the public interests.
It may be conceded that it were better for
the interest of the State, that tbe taxing
power, which ls one of the highest and most
important attributes of sovereignty, should on
no ooo aston be surrendered. In the nature 01
things the necessities ot the government can?
not always be foreseen, and In the changes of
time the ability to raise revenue from every
ape?les of property may be o? vital importance
to the State, but the courts of the country are
not the proper tribunals to apply tne correc?
tive to Improvident legislation of this charac
ter. If there be no constitutional restraint on |
the action of the Legislature on this eu bj ec t,
- there ls no remedy ; except through the iuflu- I
ence of a wise public sentiment, reaching and
controlling the conduct of the law-muiing
There ls no difficulty whatever lu this case.
The General Assembly of North Carolina told
the Wilmington and Weldon Railroad Com?
pany, In lauguuge which no one can misun?
derstand, that if they would complete the
work of Internal Improvement for which they
were Incorporated, their property and the
shares of their stockholders should be forever J
exempt from taxation. This is net denied,
but lt ls contended that the subsequent legisla- j
tion does not impair the obligation of the con?
tract, and this presents the only question In
the case. The taxes Imposed ure upon the
franchise and rolling stock of the company,
and upon lots of land appurtenant to and
forming part of the property of the company,
and necessary to be used In the .succr&sful
operation ol its business. It certainly re?
quires no argument to show that a ral road
corporation cannot perform the functions for
which lt was created without owning rolling ?
stock .and a limited quantity of real estate,
and teat these are embraced in the general
term property. Property is a word of large
import, and in its application to this company
Included ail the real and personal estate
required by lt, for the successful prosecution
o? its business. If lt had appeared that the
company had acquired, either real or personal
estate, beyond its legltlma-e wants, lt is very
clear that such acquisitions would not. be with?
in the protection of the contract. But no such
case has arisen, and we are only Cal.ed upon
to decide upon the ca?e made by the retord,
which shows plainly enough that the company
has n?t undertaken to abuse the lavor ol tue
^fjMs insisted, however, that the tax on the
*4?9pCcblse ls something entirely distinct Irom
the property of th? corporation, and that th?
Legislature, therefore, was not inhibited from
taxing lt. This position is equally unsound
with the others taken tn this ca.-e. Nothing is
better settled than that rue franchise of a prl
vate corp>ratlon-which in it- application to a j
railroad ls the privilege of rauulng it and
taking fare and freight-?B property, and ol
the most valuable kind, as lt cannot be taken ;
for public use even without compensation.
(Redfield on Railways, p. 129. fee. 70.) It Is j
true it ls Dot the same eon of property as the
rolling-stock, road-bed, and aepot grounds,
but lils equally with them covered by the
general term "the property of the company,".
and, therefore, equally within the protection
of the charter.
It is needless to argue the point further. It |
ls clear that the legislation lu controversy did
Impair the obligation of the contract, which
the General Assembly of North Carolina made
with the plaint Iff in error, und lt ?olio we that
'he Judgment ot the Supreme Court must be
reversed. Iiis so ordered, and the cause is
remanded for further proceedings in conform?
ity wltf>this opinion.

Baptist schools should be established. There
are Indian students In colleges of Kentucky
and Missouri. The Indian country ls healthy
and fertile.. The people feel that they must
be civilized or perish. Mr. Buckner spoke
with great power. A collection lor thia cause

[From the abbeville Press.]
Abbeville ls destined to become the Califor?
nia ot 8outh Carolina. G 'ld Is the watch?
word of this age. Our county abounds In rich
mineral deposits, flue water-power and good
land, and we are glad that new discoveries
are being made. On Mr. Jacob Miller's plan?
tation, eight miles from this place, valuable
specimens of gold ore have been lound, and
everything goes to show that the amount of
gold la large. Mr. Miller's plantai lon ls situ?
ated on Lone Cane Creek, Dear Little Motin
ta n, and consists ot very rica and productive
land. Tne mine ls about four hundred yards
from the creek, the water-power ls immense,
wood is plentiful, the place is easy of access
and lt ls, In tact, a place well su'.ted to the
wants and wishes of the miner. Mr. Miller
proposes to prospect the ground limber, and
we hope to hear favorable accounts In a short
time of vast treasures unearthed.
NSW YORK FASHIONS.
Spring and Summer styles.
lu the majority of spring suits the double
cape bas been retained, but, nevertheless, the
handsomest suits are made with the close fit?
ting basque; this Imparting an elegance to the
figure which by no other means is attainable?
Some of the new linen suits are made with a
sack and talma and a single skirt ornamented
by two fl maces, very deep, and very scant;
the sack belted in, forming another flounce.
F<.r the street, a small i alma Is added. A suita?
ble trimming Is linen lace. But most common?
ly worn will oe the polonaise, in simple style
upon the street, and Indoors, very diessy and
bo; i ff mt. For ordinary occasions, linen, pique,
wttsn satins, striped cambric and baitlste will
be worn; f?r more dressy, grenadine, organdy,
damask ganz* and the various styies ot sum?
mer silks. Damask gauze Is a material of re?
cent Introduciiou, exceedingly transparent,
aud sprinkled with satin flowers. For even.
lng wear also it 1* very desirable. For travel?
ling, pongee, goat's bair, und Tussore silk are
to be recommended. IQ southern climates,
nothing is S J pretty lor summer w- ams white.
Suits of va> lous materials In this can be very
advantageously ornamented with the differ?
ent kinds of *lsiaudard" trimmings which are
brought out expressly for this purpose, readily
made and ssvmg thc expense and time neces?
sary lor ruffllog, puffing, tucking, &c" by hand
or even with a macmne.
Tunics for evening wear are made of white
mus In, clear or spoiled, and trimmed Valen?
ciennes lace. They are almost as long behind
ns. the overskirr, and draped In such a way as
to throw all the fulness at the back. A pret?
tier trimming is a flounce put on with a head?
ing and edged on each side with Valencien?
nes lace. In front the bodice is crossed like a
fichu, the sleeves half open, and finished with
a deep frilling to correspond. Bows tne same
color-as the underskirt are a pleasing orna?
ment. Lovely polonaises are made ol damask
gauze, long, very bouhan*, and open In over
toe underskirt. Light silk of any pretty color
is best tor the skirt.
DONNETS AND HATS.
With the spring costumes or cashmere and
MIK which are now so fashionable, dressy bon?
nets ot silk or lace, or ot silk and lace com?
bined, are worn Streamers, however, are
rapidly belog donned, and are In great variety;
gay for tnose who desire lt, and grave for
m.iBe of qulei tastes. In shape, bonnets aod
hats are lu many cases almost Identical, and a
pair of strings may nutuutrequently transiorm
a round bat imo a bonnet. Two styles ot
trimming are seen, both equally fashionable;
the ornamentation placed in front, or the front
plain or encircled by a band only, and the
trimming massed at the back, bom flowers
and ribbon. This later style seems most prev?
alent, and ls especially true In regard to the
round hat. Coronets of daisies and other
favo i lt" flowers are frequently saen placed ou
the high front of spring bonnets, or a large
rose ou - one side, wlih a trailing spray or
grasses falling behind. Wild flowers are again
lo vogue, owing probably U) the influence of
tue gay coquettish Dolly Varden, which in dry
good? ls the rage at present. The Doily Var?
den hat ls much worn by young miles. It Is
a kind of gussey, the brim lined wlih Bilk and
turned up at the back. It ls trimmed with
loops of ribbon and loog ends. A spray of
English roses ls placed on one side; sometimes
another smaller one under the brim.
The flowing sleeves and dresses worn open
at the throat, which are now to much seen,
have given rise to Burne novelties In the way
ol ornaments for tue neck and wrists. A
necklace and wristlets ol black velvet are fas?
tened with small gold buckles brought out for
that purpose. They are In sets of three, an
inch and a half long aod an Inch wide.
CollaretieB of black velvet are also seen
slightly embroidered, and ornamented with
white giM?iire lace. They are cut open
at tho o-ck and extend to the waist In
front, where they cross and terminate In
the pointed tab, set off by a bow. They
may be worn witn plain dresses, of cash?
mere goats' bair, or serge, but will alio give
style to costumes of thin material, particularly
whites. Fancy aprons are very fashion-' le,
made In the tiner qualities of white t jds
and prettily trimmed, or of black silk embroi?
dered with chenille or floss ellie In natural
ARRANGEMENT OF THE HAIR.
The bair is usu illy arranged simply in chat
ellne braid, for wulcb, on dressy occasions,
flowing curls may be substituted. Again, the
hair may be brushed ott the temples and rais?
ed over IrlZettes. and the plaits fastened at
the back by a large lor oise shel; comb. Young
ladies wear bows of rlboon or flowers, with
pendant grasses and spray*. Married women
most frequently wear tne Alsatian bow.

CONCENTRATED PROOF LIQUEUR
Mr Guyot has succeeded in depriving tar
of its insupportable sourness and bitterness,
and in rendering it very soluble. Profiting
by this happy discovery, he prepares a con?
centrated liqueur of tar, which in a small
volume contains a large proportion of the
Guyots tar possesses all the advantages of
ordinary tar-water without any of its draw?
backs A glass of excellent tar-water without
any disagreeable taste may be instantaneously
obtained by pouring a teaspoonful into a
glass of water.
Any one can thus prepare his glass of tar
water at the moment he requires it. thus
economizing time, facilitating carriage and
obviating the disagreeable necessity ol'hand?
Guyot s tar replaces advantageously se?
veral more or less inactive ptisans in the
treatment of colds, bronchitis, coughs, and
Guyot ? tar is employed with the greatest
success in the following diseases :
AS A DRAUGHT. - A teasponfal in a glass
of water, or two tablespoonfuls in a bottle.
CATARRH OF THE BLADDER
IRRITATION OF THE CHRST
DISEASES OF THE THROAT
AS A LOTION. - Pure or diluted with a
AFFECTIONS OF THE SKIN
DISEASES OF THE SCALP
Guyot's tar has been tried with the
greatest success in the principal hospitals of
Trance, Belgium, and Spain. Experience has
proved it to be the most hygienic drink in
time of epidemics.
