On the opnlng nf this court, yesterday morn- .
Ing, there was qiilto a largo crowd of speota- -Ein. or,nrnl RnnVa' Tlitrininn

of the umirt In txn matter of tho rulo against
the Provost Marshal.
1 he presiding Judge, Hon. James Dunlop, an
nounrcd tho foil iwlug decision In tho matter)
" Tho retnrn msde by Deputy Marshal Phil
lips, the 20lh orootnber, 1801, wo will order to
be filed, though we do not doubt our power to
regard it lis Insufficient In laic, and to proceed
against the officer who has mado It.
The existing oondltton of tho country makes
It plain that that offloer Is pnworless against
the vast military force of tho Exooutlvo, sub
ject to his will and Ordor, as oommander-ln
ohlef or the army and navy of the United States.
Assuming the rerffy of the refurn, whloh has
been mado on oath, tno oxso presented is with
out parallel In tbe judicial history of tho Unl
tod States, and Involves the froe action and
offlolenoy rf thejudges of this court.
The President, oharged by the Constitution
to take oaro that the I ws be oxecuted, has
aeen fit to arrest the process of this court, and
to forbid the deputy marshal to oxecute it. It
does not Involve merely tho question on tho
power of tho Eiecutlvo In tbo civil war, and to
suspend tbo great writ of freedom tho habeas
When this rule was ordered, to giro effloaoy
to that writ, no notice had boen given by the
President, to tho courts or the country, of suoh
suspension here, cow first announced to us, and
it will hardly bo maintained that the suspen
sion could be retrosneottve.
The ruin In this oaso. therefore, whatover
may bo the President's power over the writ of
naoeas corpus, was lawiui- oraerea, as wen aa
inn writ on wnion it was luumieu
Tho facts on which the rule was ordered by
this court are assumed to bo truo as respects
the President because tho President bad them
before him and has not denied them, but for
bade the deputy marshal to serve the rule on
uenerai Andrew roner.
Tho President, we think, assumes tho resDOn
slblllty of tho acts of General Porter, set forth
In tho rulo, and sanctlonod them by his order
to Deputy Marshal Vi 1 lips not to Berve tho
procoss on mo provost rnarsnai.
The issuo ought to be and is with tho Presi
dent, and wo have no physical power to en
force the lawful process of this oourt on his
military subordinates against the President's
prohibition. We havo exhaustod overy prac
tical remedy to uphold the lawful authority of
It la ordered this 30th day of November, 18S1,
that this opinion of the court be Olod by the
olerk, and made part of tho reoord, as exnlaln
lng the grounds on which we hive now declined
to ordor any further proceedings In this oaso."
Judge Morsoll then read tbe lollowlog pro
"As a member of this oourt, and on its be
hair. I wish It understood that notwithstanding
tho blow lovelled at this oourt, I do distinctly
assert the following principles:
First. That the law in lu counlri knows no

authority over the military oannot be denied;
that It has been established by the ablest
Jurists, and, I bollere, recognised and re

Third. That this court ought to bo respected
