require a prophet or the son of a proph

It requires no stretch of the imagi
nation to fancy the fifth of relief with
which tho official signature f I'rtmi
dent Uraut u affixed to the message
aoeoupanyiug the .San Domingo re
port. The President frankly avows
his satiifaclion at being able to wah
his hands of the affair and give it over
into the hand of the American pcdplc.
His satisfaction, no doubt, was light
ened by the hectoring he received from
the Connecticut Republican "managers
who, in order to save their State to the
ltepublicari party, forced the President
into writing a letter in which he avowed
his determination to abandon the an
nexation of Kan Domingo as an admin
titration nituMirc, thus making its sup
port no tciit of party fealty. A copy of
his letter tent to uvcry poll in Con
uectlcut and the Chicago TriLunt says
"saved the Sute." The Trihun there
fore typographically pats Grant on the
back and calls him '-good Ulysses" for
uot being stubborn. "Mr. Grant a ob

marked as in that notable one when ho
made known his purpose to "Ci'.btit out

The report of the San Domingo com
miawoners was laid before the Congress
of the United States on Wednesday
afternoon. It is of considerable
length ; its main points are substan
tially as follows :
The commission visited every part of
tho Island and spent several weeks in
the Capital in daily communication
with the chief officers of the govern
ment, examining official records, taking
the testimony of witnesses, etc.
They found the government in
theory a constitutional republic, con
sisting of three' branches, executive,
legislative end judicial. General Baez
was found in peaceable possession of
all darts of the rcpublio except on tho
naytien border where the people are
violently opposed to annexation with
the United States,
The Insurrections which exist are
beaded by Cabral and Luperon. Tho
commissioners believe that if tho revo
lutionists .had wicldel ouly their own
forces and had not derived importance
from the help of foreign intriguers, thoy
would long ago have been put down.
Tho general feeling among all classes
of the iubabitanta is in favor of annex
ation to the United States, due to tho
presenco'in various parts of the country,
of small colonies of colored people
from the United States. The people
of the country are of mixed blood, tho
whitot preponderating, the population
numbering 150,000. m Tbey rcl honest,
temperate, and not given to high crimes.

In the U. S. Supremo Court yesterday a
decision was made In tho case of Bulling
ton vs. Day. Tho defendant in error was
Judgo of the probate court of Barnstablo
county, Massachusetts, and tho plaintiff in
error was collector of Internal rrjvenuo.
Tho Judge paid the income tax on his sal
ary under protest, and brought suit to re
cover tho amount. Tho lower court held
tho tax to bo unconstitutional, and awarded
Judgment for the plaintiff. The Supremo
Court yesterday affirmed this judgment,
holding "that tbo Judicial power is exempt
from Federal taxation. This boing ono of
the powers nover granted to tbe Kodaral
govern men t, and remains unaltered and
unimpaired, and in respect of which tho
states aro as Independent of tho gcnoral
government as tho gcnoral government Is
of tho states. This boing an original re
served power in tho states, the judicial of
ficer appointed under it to carry it into ef
fect, tho exemption of tbo officer from tax
ation stand upon as solid ground and are
maintained by principles and reasons as
cogent as those which led to tho exemp
tion of Fedora) officers from taxation by
the states, for in respect of tliwe reserved
powers, tho state is ui overvign and InJe
pendent as the general government." Such
a judicial decision recalls tho old time
when tho constitution nnd tho laws were
paramount, and tho decrees of tha
Supremo Court of tho United State
were final. That day haa passed and In
its place wo havo thu vqlco of tbe Judi
cliry stifled on tho political acts of "tho

Congress who pass acts without regard to

wish is for another era of blood that thoir
rule may be continued, in tho fare of thU
condition of things I am surprised tbul tho
Supreme Court is permitted to talk such
treason as the reserved rights of tbo States,"

House of Beprssentativos, by good Badical

to public fraternity nnd to rnysalf that 1
should hero clve hll tbo" clrctlmslatlc'cs
which first led to tho ntgotlstlon of the
treats- for tho annexation of tho republic
of Sun Domingo to the United States.
When 1 accented tub arduous and re
sponsible position which I now hold,
j iia noiuruHin ot instituting any steps
for the nctjtililtlons.of Imiilnr possessions,
I believed however Hint our institutions
wero broad enouirh to extend over tho en
tire continent ns ' rapidly as other pooplo
rnlcht dulru to brtns themselves on-
de our protection. " Believing far
thcr, that wo should not permit

condition of Independence to one of
ownership or protection under nn
Kuropoan power, "soon alter, my limugu

man represented tho mpsHty of tho is

boon deoribed by the commissioners
whose report accompanies this mossse.
Ho stated further tbat being weak In num

that the pooplo bad no Incentive lu indus

uho made the tame representation nnd
uliow riooi v'j'l in like miinner. In
view of tho facts which bad beet laid be
fore inc, and with un curnevt desiro to
maintain the Monroe doctrine, 1 bollcvcl
that 1 would bo neglo:tful In my duty If 1
did net take measure, to u-ycrtnin tho
ucts which the covcrnmont and inhabl
LanU of thi republic of San Djmiiigo had
done In regard to unnexatlon, and com
munnicHto tlio information to tho peojil
of the United States. Under tho attend
ing rircuinstances I full that it' I
turned a deaf ear tu this niijvoal. I
might in future bo justly charged with a
flagrant neglect of tho publio interest,
with utter disregard of the welfare of a
dowu-trodden racr, pravlng for the liles
ingt of a free and str ; uovernincut and
for protection If onjoymcnt of llio
fruits of tholr ' .ustry. Tho.o op
ponents to annexu.. who lmv.i hereto
fore professed to bo tun-eminently the
friends ot the rights ut man, 1 believed
would be my most violent assailants if I
neglecled so clear u duty. Accordingly
after having appointed commissioners to
visit tho Island, who declined on account
of sickness, I selected a second man, la
whoso capacity, ludgmeut and integrity I
had and have yet tho must unbounded con
fidence, lie viiitcu san uouungo, not to
secure or foster annexation, unprejudiced
and unbiassed to learn the facts about the
government, people and resources of that
republic. Ho went certainly a well pre
pared to mako nn unfavorable report ns n
t'avorablo ono, If the facts warruntod it.
His report fully corroborated tho views of
previous com m ("loner', and upon Its re
ceipt I felt that the nenso of duty and duo
regard for our great national interests re
quired mo to negotiato a treaty lor tno ac
nuisition ot mo repunno oi sap iiumiiigo.
As soon as It become publicly known that
such a treaty had been negotiated, tho at
tention or tno country was occupied with
allegations calculated to projudico the
merits of the case, and with those whr.so
duty had conncctod them with It. Amidst
tho publio excitement thus created thu
sreaty failed to receive, tho re
quisite two-thirds vote of tho son a to
and was rejected; but whether tho action
of that body was based wholly on tho
merits of the treaty or might not have
been In soma degroo influenced bv such
unfounded allegations could not bo known
bv the People, because tho debates of tho
ftcnato in socrot session aru not published.
Under theso circumstance 1 deemed it
duo to thoottloo which 1 hold und dun to
tho character of the agents who had been
char god with tho investigation that such
proceeding should bo had as would enable
tho people to know tho truth. A commis
sion was thoreforo constituted under tho
authority of tho congress consisting of tla
gontlomen seluctod with a special refer
ence to their high character and capacity
for tho laborious work entrusted to them,
who were instructed to visit tho .pot and
report upon tho facts. Other eminent citi
zens were ruquestad to acaompauy tho
commission in order that the people might ,
havo tho benefit of their vlows. Students
of silonco and correspondents f tho press
without regard to political opinions,
Invited to loin tho expedition, and their
numbers wero limited only by tho capaui
ty of tho vessel, Tho mere rejection by
the senate of a treaty negotiated by the
president only indlcatos a difference of
opinion by tbo government, without touch-
ing the, clmrrcter or wounding tho prido of
oitnur; uui whon tno ri'tection iiu:cs place
simultaneously with changes made openly
of corruption on tho part of tho proident
or theso employed bp bin , tho rase l.s dif

motives and actions of thoso who represen

and I gladly hand over tho whole matter

a storm. Aboul three weeks ago Yellow
Hawk wmit upon his l.iu journev Ilo
was accompniiled by his wlfu and dog,
While he wu in tho neighlKjrhood of '
Fort Sully ntorriblu storm, attended with
thunder and lightning, passed over tho
vicinity. On the day following tt party
of men happened to como across it little
canvass ten: pitched upon tho river bank.
It iiro a neglected nppoaranco, and ono
of tho party stopped up to It and looked in. 1
lull lie saw liters) paralyzoil Is I si with
terror, for ho gazed upon a sight tho like
of which ho shall probably never look upon
again. At tho end of the tent wore Yel
low Hawk, his wife, nnd tho dog grouped '
together. Yo low Hawk sat upright, uith !
hii hand lit inly grasping thu neck of tho
dog, who Was silling on hit haunches; on !
tho other ldo of thu dug reclined Yollow '
Hawk's wife, leaning on his elbow. All
three wero stark, rigid, and of nil three, iho
eye worn wldo open, staring with a look
of fear. Tho shock of this dreadful sight
rendered tha observer incapable of million,
and it was only when his friends caino to
him that his sensoof movement returned
to him. Tho thrcu wero iletttl; but where
f.ro ? It Is said that thu lightning killed
thorn, but neither on llio tent nor aboul
the li'xllos was the slightest evldenco of the
