Sunday Morning, Dec. 30, 1866. j
That ins.ine radical and bad man,
Forney, in bia Chronicle, speaking of
tbc recent decision of tbc Supremo
Court pronouncing the illegality of
military commissions for the trial of
civilians, utters the following lan- j
"Treason, vanquished upon the j
battle-field and hunted from every i
other retreat, has at last found a se?
cure shelter in the bosom of the Su-1
prerne Court. * * * This extra-1
ordinary decision will doubtless
receive the serions? attention of Con?
gress at ".u early day."
And suppose it does attract thc
attention of tho so-called Congress.
Wc have yet left two sufficient bar- j
riers against the insane measures of |
destruction which that cabal passes, j
in tho executive and judicial depart?
ments of the Government. So long
as public sentiment holds in high
esteem the chief judicial tribunal, and
so long as tho Executive is comman?
der-in-chief of the land aud naval
forces of the United States, the peo?
ple are comparatively safe from tho j
execution of revolutionary edicts.
"We further believe that the masses
of the Northern ' people will never
consent that the temples of jnstico bo
laid violent hands upon by these
radical vandals. The Supreme Court,
since the earliest days of the Govern?
ment, bas been the strong palladium
of the rights and liberties of the peo?
ple, and cannot be permitted to fall a
victim to the destructives in Con?
gress. An assault upon it would bo
an assault upon about all that is left
ns of conservative Republicanism, as
left by tho founders of the Govern?
The Southern people, under their
extraordinary trials, have only to
persevere in their present course of
conduct; patient, but firm, manifest?
ing their full reliance on the great
principles of the Constitution-enter?
taining a bigh-toned regard for their
whole duty as citizens towards the
Federal Government, of pa: riotic
submission to the laws they are
pledged to obey, and a proper firm?
ness in resisting revolutionary meas?
ures, as in the case of the Constitu
tioi_al amendment; and ?ts sure as tho
principles of truth and right are
given to men by Omnipotence itself,
so surely will their ultimate triumph
come. The ?faction that would de?
stroy such a Constitution and such a
Government ai; our fathers bequeath?
ed us, cannot, under the justice of
Heaven, be permitted long to rule
the peopki in wickedness.
A Dublin letter to tlicSunday Neus
says the Government officials are fre?
quently sold Ivy stones that Stephens
bas landed a', different points on the
coast, keeping troops and gun-boats
constantly on the move. Phoenix
Park, in which is situated the Govern?
ment powder magazine, has been sur?
rounded by heavily-manned earth?
works and palisades. Troops are
continually arriving from England,
and suspected Irish regimen..-, are
transported to England and the colo?
nie?. Despite the exertions of tho
authorities, midnight meetings for
drill are held all over Ireland, and
the people evidently are awaiting
Stephens' arriva! to rise, in spite of
the great odds against them.
COLD WEATHER.-Yesterday we

seemed to commence tremendously
in earnest; but the reception it met
with was so warm a one, that it soon

wind was piercing and keen. Tho
mountains beyond us are covered
with snow, and present the appear?

NEGROES ON STBKET CABS ts PHELA
DELIPHIA.-A conductor kicked a
colored woman from a street car, in
Philadelphia. The woman's husband
brought an action against the railroad
company for damages. The judge
decided that the company had the
right to exclude negroes from their
cars, and the jury found for the de?
fendant. This throws Forney into a
passion. He says: We do not hesi?
tate to siy that, at this time, and in
this country, sach a decision is
scarcely less infamous than that ren?
dered by the Supreme Court of tho
United States in the Dred Scott case.
The incomes last year paid a reve?
nue of $60,894,185, which was nearly
three times the revenue of the year
before from tho same source. The
cigar-smokers contributed for the
support of thc Government $3,474,
438, and the chewers and tobacco
smokers nearly four times as much.
Distilled spirits gave a revenue of
.$29,198,576; and the Commissioner
thinks the Government loses more
by evasion under this head than
under any other, except, possibly,
that of income.
A letter from London says: "If a
war does come, and England cannot
.keep out of it, everybody knows that
an army can land on the coast, and in
three marches take London and its
great arsenal, Woolwich, when Eng?
land would be utterly powerless and
at the mercy of the invader; ftjr there
is but one great arsenal, one military
depot; and tho little army, defeatetl
in one action, has no line to fall back
upon, and no reserves."
