LAW—EVIDSNCB.
OPINIOB 2Y ENGLISH, C. J.
TII2 Act of March 19,1862, against the dis
tillation of grain is eeastitstional.
A military oruer from th* commander-ln
ehief *f tiro forces iu the State of Arkansas, to
a«"*tiicer directing him to purchase whiskey,
or to inapros digtilleries forthe t us* of the g9r
•ramant, is no jusiifioatleu for another officer
in distilling grain.
Nor could a letter addressed to the defendant
by a reporter officer dated ca the day of the
finding es the indictment dircctiug him to pur
chare whisked, exeu*« him for distilling it.
If the dafeedant Lad ahown that the eistilli* g
wber-with he was charged was dcu* in th* line 1
es hi« ofiieuu duties una-’r an order from a su
perior military officer for tho use of the medic
al de part ts ent, L'S justifioatior. would have bseu
uxado cut.
Proof that he drank *r permitted others te
drink a portion of the liqcors so distilled wm
irrolevan; to the issue.
The constitution of th* Confoderato States,
and ths tre-ities and law* nando jn pursuance
thereof, are paranioni.'. to the eoctliitnion and
laws of tb-. Statu when there is a ooefiict he
. tw«a them.
I: ia the province of the cemmrMdisg gen
eral. und a*; of tn* evert, to settle whether'
wals-ay bo an article noc«ssary tn th* sepport
of tL« army; and th* court below errod iu un
dertakieg to Cm u« thet whiskey was uot ne
cessary to the support of tho a;my.
In this case th- re was bo proof of the official
chxr-ctci of Maj. Hili io whom the order te
purchase whiskey and unnrvs* diellllories wm
addressed; and this court does not lake judicial
cognizance of an officer of that grad--.
ina.o btcuid have bee i projf th—t he acted
as, or was j.-aurally reported ta *e, such oe.-
c*r.
The defendant admitted ta ■ pen court thul
distinction er , mn into whiskey. The State
should have pre cod in additioE the time and
venue of the mis kswuor.
I* this eas were an ordinary misdemeanor,
the court might incline to presume, fret* the
ircunißtence* uder whh h the admission was
made, that it was tho intention of the defondaut
te odaxi: the distiUlxig as charged in the indict
ment; but at this case involves his liberty, pre

SO far as the ausw-r es tho defendants Is ro
spousive to tho bill, replying to it j u the
uegative and peuitlvely, end not admitting it
and seeking to avoid the affect of the obliga
tions and admissions by counter obligations, it
is the tesri»w.r."y cf the defendants in their own
babalf, aud must prevail uni*** cvcrweigh*d
by other testimavy.
Two, witnesses, er »no whose testimony is
wall corroborated Ly clrcuosstanres, are uecrs- |
jary to overweigh tho direct testimony of a r*-1
spondent so given.
At the same time the answer is up mors sa
cred than the tustituoEy of a di.-int -restod wit

And its uredit may be whoi-y destroyed by

Ithst iu the six months preceding the

tho large amount of taxes paid bad con-
■ tributod exclusively to the relief cf the 1

amount being ui: Jer £2,000:000 is adc
quaUly provided for by the cotton own

about 1R bales.
He c?n«id€TS tho measures developed j
by the last Cor.grosß to improve thu
currency aa failures—urges tho impor
tance cf eScisat action to sustain it,
aud accompanied with much argument
and illustration in detail, recoiur-ends
the following measure:
It is an act pledging tho faith of the
i~v.se of treasury notes bey end the
; amount autherizod by the act of 17th
jof February, Ft ; exempting the notes!
■ from taxation ; providing for ths appli-;
cati a<l l re./ j per cent, cf tho taxes!
ar.n-ully to tb» icductioa of that amount !
:util pe?.CC be declared or tho outetan-'
jffdrg sum be reduced to 5150,000,000 ;:
| ccmlinuinj ths tax in kind after the war.
and appropriating an acce^‘.ftiqod pro-'
! f. Ttios thereof annn.dly to tho red- mp- '
j t; -u or payment cf tho circulation, until j
the whole shall te retired.
' I propose that the redemption shall ■
> Lc made from the tithes of cotton, wheat
■.nd corn, at prices fixed by the act,
jsu: ly : cotton at fifty cents pct
I pound, wheat at four dollars per bush
' el, and corn at two dollars ptr buahel :
; that the notes be receive I after the ivar,
jfn n all persons liable to the tax in
'kind, in commutation of their tithes;
I aid that tho Secretary of the Treasury ‘
, be authorized to issue certificates i;. ex-|
change for treasury notes, bearing six
per cent, interest, secured and redeem
able in the same manner and on the
same tents as tho teuiu themselves,
free from taxation aud receivable after
the war in payment of the tax io kind ;
and that all notes, received into the
t; sary f. r thece certificates, bo can
celled.
Th* effect of this measure would be
{that, at pteticat prices, tho entire popu
linti jk would be interested in exchanging
their productions for treasury notes,
i'hoy would constitute not only a safe
I currency, bot a profitable ir.re. tmeDt,
! for in the ratio of ten dollars for one, as
I compared with specie, the produce ob
tained in payment at the close of the
w»r, would cost the follin.h g prices,
viz : cotien five cents per pound, wheat
forty ccnta per fe ishcl and corn twenty
cents. These nominally low prices
would not oparato to the prejudice of
the agriculturist, for his tax, being in
kind, would neither be increased nor di-'
I rninished by tho price. It is true L-?
• would have a collateral interest in com
[ mon with tax payers generally, (f >r us
> course all inteicsts will be taxed,) in
. tho redemption of the notes at a moder
ate rate. In i’ is respect his interest
would be protected by the prices stix»-
ulated by the act. which are not too low
tor a time of peace. But if they were,
a full compensation would accrue to the
tax payer iu the immediate enhaacement
jof the notes and consequent rodne
| tion of expenses. And the pn»4uccr
j would find a complete idemnitr in the
| Hsle of a bushel of corn now at four
dollars, and the application of h. mou
|ey to the payment of a tax hereafter of
' two bushcL'.

U* g-w into a statement of the preba
bic crops of these staples, aud continues :
There is an element of our national
wealth, taken s'ngly, that exhibits, in n
striking view, tl.e amplitude of our re
sources to meet our wants. I refer to the
great staple of cotton. Tho nett pro
coeds of one bale exported and solo iu
England at the present price is about two
i.uudrcd dollars in gold ; and at the rale
of ten dollars in currency for one dollar
in grid, this is equal to two thousand
dollars ; and four billions dollars for tho
two millions of bales estimated to be still
iu the country; a sum more than five
times as great as the funded debt. The
impossibility of realizing the full b?acfit
|of this resourae under existing circum
riances ie * raitted; but the statement
exhibits the abuudsßce es ear means ; and
e cry effort should bo ma le to apply this
great element of wealth and pow. r to the
purposed arresting the pr-gres? of de
preciation, r. a d retarding the accuir.J.i
tion of debt.
I propose an additional duty of five
cents per pound on the exportation of
cottes a&d tobacco aud the duplication of
the duties on imports; payments to be
made io coupons of'.l.t five hundred mil
; lion loan, sterling exchange and speeio,
■as uow proud rd’by hw. The price ts
cotton in Liverpool being about sixty
cents per peund, the drduefion cf fiv«
cents for the tax would hard’y h**e an
appreciable effect upon its v-.l'uc m cur
rency. The duty would fall o' iefiy on
ithe foreign consumer, or be taken from
the profits of the exporter; end an impor
tant financial advantage wjuld be ob
tained at a moderate sxpeiisc to the coun
try I’he increased duty cc impotts
would je a small tax on lucrative trade.
If paid by the importer, it would bo free
from sli ohjectfoo ; and if by the consu
mer, his ability to bear it is abundantly
! proven by the high price paid for good-.
The measures would enhance the value
aud enlarge the demand for tho five hun
dred million lean.

as the act amending the act of 17th of

• ty cud income tax iu full operation, with
out the abatements u< w allowed, viz;

change *h« desired amount of rtvcr.u-?
will be secured, and the prominent in?
qualities of taxation, new the subject Y>f
complaint, will be redressed.
I would rcspec’fully recommend that
e!l Gove nmcui bonds and stocks, and

• meat, be declared tree from taxation, ex
cept upon the income derived therefrom ;
I icd tLat tl.e income tax be at die sstuo
! rate and subject to the same couditious
ns other income taxes. The policy cf
ibis measure is obvious. I adci existing
laws, except in the enss cf the five hun
dred million loan aud the certificates,the
income derived from Government securi
ties, is Deaily nil taken back ia t’ o feint
of tnxstioo. One effect is to drive the
bonds abroad and create a foreign debt
that will be found oppressive on the rc
turn of peace, and another is to raise a
preference for other investments over Go
vernment securities. Many investments
yield a larger income than simple inter
