Washington, Dec. 17. The Supreme
Court of the I'nHod States' to-day de
livered an opinion as to the legality
and Coiihtitutioiiulity of tho trials by
Military Commipsion. The cae boloro
the Court was txparte I.amdeit P. Mil
i,'an iu the Indiana habeas rorpu case.
The Court held that in the facts stated
in the petition and exhibited, that the
writ of hilmits corj'u was properly i
sued, aijd that Milignn siiould be dis
charged from wistody, and that the
Military Conimisrtion had no jurisdic
tinn legally to try and aentence the
petitioner. ' ! ''
Juhtice Davis delivered the opinion,
holding that Congress provided aguinst
Mich coiiuniHsionH, rather tlian in- lavor
of them, bv the act of Ib'iiH, and that
the Constitution the 'supremo law
the land in times ot peace, as in times
of war, ih cxiiresHl y agauiht tliem.
Chief Jubtice Chase, Justice Wayne
and Miller concurring. diHe"ted from
so much of the opinio as held that Con

In tho Senate to day, whilo tho bill
repeal tho thirteenth section of tho
empowring the President to grant am
ucsty and purdon was uiuierconsidera
tion, .Mr. 'Jiumbull ttated that tho
jection to the ction sought to bo
pealed is that li is brouuer than
Constitution; that there can bono
now for exercising the power
to grant general amnesty and purdon
and that Congress did not desire to
party to giving thePresident greater
power than is conferred' by the Consti
tution. It .was admitted, however, that ,
President's power to restoro property
will not ne afleeted Uy tho repeal
the thirteenth section; that the Presi
dent has accompanied pardon by
order directing property to be restored;
but this can not eflect the title to con
fiscate property when third parties
tervene, or have acquired rights. ,
was also admited that the President
tan pardon an offense before or
conviction. i .
