J llic two e. sex betoie iir' Supreun Court,
which have created so much alarm and t-xcite
meut, are the Texas ludeninfty Bonds ease
and the case of McCardle of Mississippi. The
Texas bonds were authorized bv an act ol Con
gress approved Sept.!), 1850, to idemnify the
State ol Texas for her relinquishment ol all
claims upou the United State . and for com
pensation for' the surrender to the United
States ol her siiips. torts, arsenals, custom
houses, ike., which became the property of
the United States at the time of her aunexa
tbn. Of these five per cent.*, *257,000 w ere
reported by Secretary McCulloch as outstand
ing on the 1st of January, and it is understood
that the whole or a large pan ol ilnin are in
the hands ol White, Chiles and Company, of
Kentucky, and other parties in New Voik
and elsewhere,who bought them of the Con
federate Government of Texas during the
war. Sometime last year, Mr. A. T. Mot rick
of Wasltingtcn, as counsel for the State of
Texas, applied for and obtained aji injunction
to prevent the negotiation ol the b >nds thus
sold. The purchasers now come into court
and ask a dissolution of the injunction, on
the arouml that Texas is ndt a State i n the
Union and has no standing u the Supreme
Court.
The case or McCardle involves the consti
tutionality of the reconstruction laws. Mc
Cardle is the editor of the Vicksburg Time*,
and being like many editors south and some
north of Mason and Dix'on's line, a noisy,
brawling fellow without sense or discretion,
it became necessary lor General Ord to have
him arrested lor publishing libels on officers
of the Kreeduien’s Bureau and articles tend
ing to excite a disturbance of the public
peace and further designed, as was alleged, to
i itimidafe loyal voters and to hinder the
work of reconstruction in Mississippi. Hu
was brought before a millitary commission
for trial, but was subsequently produced in
the United States District Court in answer to
a writ of habeas corpus and a('cr argument
was remanded by Judge Hill to the custody
of General Old's deputy, General Gillem. An
appeal was promptly takes Irom this decision,
on the ground that the reconstruction law un
der which the military commission claims ju
risdiction is unconstitutional. It is reported
that five ol the eight judges ot the Supreme
Court are of the opinion that the law is not
distinctly authorized by tire constitution, and
t!u House of Representatives has accordingly
in a great hurry passed a law requiring the
assent oi two thirds of the lull bench to any
decision adverse to a law of Congress. This
at the first glance serines to he a provision es
sential to the stability ot legislation. A two
thirds majority of the two bouses ol Congress
is required-to overrule the veto of tire Presi
dent,and it seenres entirely just to require the
agreement of two-thirds of the court to abro
gate.'a law ot Congress. On the other liaDd it
is urged with great force that the validity ol
the acts of Congress is constantly liable to
come in question hi controversies between in
dividuals involving rights oI property, ahd the
establishment of this tule gives an unfair ad
vantage to the party resting 1,5 claim upon
the validity of such an act.
If the Supreme Court could be relied upon ■
tocoutiuc ifaeif to the business for which ft
was constituted, the decision of questions ot
law and equity before it, .villi sole reference
to the riglrtg involved and careful avoidance
of intrusion into the domain of legislation,
then indeed its high standing in ti e earlier
days ot the Republic might remain unques
tioned ; then it nriclrl claim the reverence of
all men as the very fountain ot justice; then
the decision of any and all questions which
could come before it, might he awaited in
confidence and lelt safely to a majority of tire
court. Unhappily tiie court lias alr eady been
dragged iulo the political arena in one memo
rable instance. Unhappily there is now an
uneasy suspicion that this case of McCardle,
which if taken up in its regular order would
be postponed two years, will he brought for
ward on tire docket lor political effect. We
are not prepared to believe that the Supreme
Couit will so degrade itself, but il there is any
danger of it Congress is aetiug wisely in pro
viding against that danger. The business of
the Supreme Court in this case is simply to
secure McCardle in his rights. The postpone
ment will not affect him unfavorably. While
the case is pending proceedings before the
military commission are stayad, and the de
fendant goes about his business on hall. In
good time a decision is readied and ho is
either remanded for trial or sent to the civil
courts.
it me ui UCCIIUlllg IIS OjilUlOU
of the recent legislation of Congress, the court
goes out of its way to take up this case, it will
unquestionably lie meddling with a very dan
gerous subject. It has already held the war
with the rebels to be a regular territoiial war,
attended by all the incidents ot a war with an
alien enemy. The terms of reconciliation
after such a war, cal) them by what name you
please, are of the nature of a treaty. It is the
business of the Supreme Court to coustrue,
not to make, treaties. It is ihe American
people who are entitled to decide, through
their representatives, on what terms the com
pact abjured by the Southern rebels shall be
renewed. They have decided. The plan of
reconstruction is already marked out. No
human power can change it. It the Supreme
Cpurt wantenly meddles with it, the court
will suffer hut the determination of the people
will remain unchanged. A popuiai movement
cannot be controlled by judicial decisions, and
for that very reason the judiciary should, in
order to preserve its great and beneficent le
gitimate influence, keep aloof from purely
political questions. \Yhafc effect would a de
cision from the bench on the constitutionality
of the call for troops have had in 1861? It
would have been laughed to scorn. The court
prudently avoided that question in 1861, and
we trust it will exhibit the same prudence
now. If it persists in meddling with matters
which it can not and should not control, it is
worth considering whether it may not be best
tor Congress instead of changing the constitu
tion of the court to impeach the judges.

Tilt TBOUBI.ES IX TUK EAST.
Nova.Scotia seems to be the pluckiest ol ail
the Provinces of the British North American
Union. She has no idea of sitting down
lamely under her wrongs, oi accepting a* in
evitable the state of things imposed on her by
her faithless legislators, and struggling to car
ry along tier proportion ot tha burden grow
ing out of tlie unwieldy and frightfully ex
pensive confederation. Her people are awake
to their interests, and they know the value of
agitation. The Halifax Chronicle of Decem
ber 14, is before us, containing the report of a
mec ing held in that city the evening before,
to express the popular voice hi tavor of the
repeal of the Act of Union so far as their
Province is concerned. Tlie meeting seems
to have been crowded and euthosiastic, aiid
the demonstration h powerful one. A great
number of the best and ablest men in tbe
Province were present, among whose names
that of the Hon. Joseph Howe is probably
the most familiar to American readers, and
very- strong speeches were made on the occa
sion. The following preamble and resolu
tions were adopted with unanimity:
lT7ierea», Owing to tlie great diversity of in
terests and feelings between tlie Provinces ol
Nova Scotia and Canada, the public sentiment
of the people of Nova Scotia is distinctly op
pose 1 to tne Confederation of this Province
with the Province of Canada:
Anil whereas, The poople of Nova Scotia nev
er did become assenting parties to the Act of
Union, the Legislature which sanctioned such
Act having done so in direct opposition to the
w ell understood wishes of the people, and by
assuming a power never entrusted to them;
Therefore resolved, That in the opiuiou of
this meeting, the Act of Union, as passed and
made law by the Imperial Parliament, has uo
claim upon the loyalty of the people of Nova
Scotia, any obedience yielded to such Act be
ing a matter of coercion, ami not given with
tlie free assent of a free people.
And it fs also irsc’rid, that this meeting
hails with much satisfaction the action ol tlio
nieiiiliers of the Nova Scotia Legislature, and
also of tbe Nova Scotia members of the Do
minion House ot Commons who have signified
their determination to use all constitutional
means to bring about a repeal of so much ot
tlio Act. of Union as refers to the Province of
Nova Scotia; and also express tlie hope that
the Legislature of this Province, ini mediately
utter assembling for despatch of business, will
take the necessary steps to bring this subject
liefore the Government and Parliament of
Great Britain.
The rvlls jurist insisted upon by tlie speak
ers were those of a tin an del character; and
statistics were introduced to show the heavy '
burden - already incurred under Confederation,
and the probability that these would increase
rather than diminish w ith time. Mr. Howe
made a speech which, if moie moderate in
statement than some of the ethers, w as cer
tainly as convincing and influential. He rec
ommended moderation and good temper in
the appeal for Nova Scotia's release. “ Until
the tiial of tlie next three or four jiionths is
made, peace and order must be maintained as
of old; the old flag must float above us still,
and be revered and resjiected until we have
received our answer. Should the answer
from the mother country be unfavorable, it
may be asked what should we do then 1’ He
was hardly prepared to say. Then, without
doubt, would come a season of trial and deep
anxiety. Hi? was satisfied, however, trout
lot ty days sitting at Ottawa that the scheme
could never prffve acceptable to Nova Scotia.
If the British Parliament should say we must
lie down, and bow in bondage to Canada, then
it would be a serious affair, aud a conucil of
war would liave to tie called to consider our
next action.’’
ft is this “next action" which is likely to
prove tlie stuff of which the Nova Scotian
Opposition is made. There is scarcely a pos
sibility of the impeiial Parliament acceding
to their request; and when the refusal come*
they will find themselves face to face with the
real crisis ot their fate. If they choose to
staud their ground we do not see what is to
prevent their liaviug their own way. It is ea
tiinated that at least, nine-tenths of the popu
lation will support the petition for repeal. In
face of a unanimity like this, the Dominion
and Imperial governments have no resource
but in coercion. They must try that or accept
the alternative of acquiescence.
Tlie extreme gravity of the situation is
probably recognized by the more clear-sighted
of Canadian statesmen, though they do apt
openly admit it. But the Toronto Globe, al
ways an ardent supporter of the Union, said
lately. “ We do not yet despair of Confeder
ation," a form of expression certainly not
hopeful. That paper is wise cpougli to. see
that if Nova Scotia goes, New Brunswick
must soon follow; and with the harbors ol
these Provinces lost to her Canada is cut off
from the sea, and so the bottom drops cut tf
the Confederation. It mns*. go to pieces at
once. Probably immense efforts will be made
iu the course of the next six months to con
ciliate the discontented people of tlie Mari
time. Provinces,and to buy up their leaders;
but they have got the idea pretty well fixed in
their dogged English minds that Confedera
tions means for them nothing but restiictcd
trade and increased taxation, and it will be
hard to eradicate the notion. We shall watch
the progress of tlieir allairs with interest.
Letter from Yarmouth.
Yarmouth, Jan. 20, ISOS.
To the b'lHtor <y the Prtu:
Yarmouth lias all the natural advantages
tor extensive business operations or a desir
able residence. It has already become a place
of considerable wealth, and there are many
elegant dwellings. It has the advantage of
water communication with Casco Bay for
vessels of large drait, and therefore affords an
excellent opportunity for shipbuilding. The
Royal River runs nearly through the centie,
on which there are four dams within the lim
its' of the town. This riv r is fed by several
ponds of considerable inaauit"dc and seldom
fails. The track of the Grand Ttuuk Rail
road is through the centre of the town and
that of the Portland & Konneliec road about
a mile north o.r it, so that ample opportuni y
is afforded for communication with all creat'on
and the rest of uiankiDd.
VtLI.AGIJ FLOUR MUX.
I.oting Bueknam's Village Flour Mill is
on the upper dam. It has been built about
five years, sin-e which time it has beeu iu
constant operation. There is one building
,->0 by 40 feel. 4 1-2 stories high; another 30by
04 feet, 3 1-2 stories, a store house 40 feet
square, a cooper shop and count mg room.
About 10,000 barrels oj dour arc made, and
75,000 bushels ol corn ground annually. This
mill is admirably arranged lor the business,
having all the modern improvements and
latest macbinety tor raising and distributing
the grain, grinding and packing the flour. Ac.
Mr. A, L. Loring is principal owner and busi
ness mauager, to whose industry aud business
tact the success oi the enterprise is vety
much indebted.
TAPER MAM OK ACTOR T.
On the same dam is the paper manufacto
ry of Mr. Little, which l* employed mainly In
making news paper. One or more paper* in
this eity it supplier! from that mill, aud tever
ul of the Uostou papers. On the next dam
is the mill of Brown and Denison, simee*«oi»
to the Y.umouth Paper Company. They 1
are luuuiug principal y on line hook pa|>er for (
the Boston Market, although they supply
several of the papers iu this vicinity.

On the lower dam is another flour mill, own
ed and occupied by the same parties as the
one on the upper dam. There is also a saw
mill doing a large business, and a wuoienvarn
manufactory. There is about 07 feet fail from
the upper to the lower dam, the distance of
about a mile, so that there could he a contin
uous row of mills the entire distance, with
water enough to run them most of the year.

Mr. H. Hutchins is making arrangements
to build a brig the present season, and Mr.
Blanchard a ship. Beyond that I. hear of
nothing in contemplation, but if the cloud
should rise others will undoubtedly commence
operations.

Letter Iran* Wushingtan.
Washington, D. T., Jan. 15, 1868.
To the Kditor of the Treet:
For the past tew days the political cauldron
baa been in a state of uunsnnl agitation. The
action of the Senate in reinstating Secretary
Stanton has at last brought matters to a focus,
and his mafesty A. J. has been handsomely
caught in the very trap he set for Congress.
Those who have been disgustful of Geu.
Grant's sympathy with tbe Republican party;
and have been importuning him for a formal
declaration of his sentiments, can now see,
from his conduct in this transaction, where his
sympatbira lie and to which party he belongs.
Day before yesterday, as you have already
been informed by telegraph, Mr. Stanton qui
etly resumed his dudes aud was at mice rec
ognized as Secretary of War by all the officers
connected with the Department. Since that
tinn- the wildest rumors have filled the lily,
in regard to the President's plau ol action. It
was given out yesterday, ou seemingly good
authority, that he would immediately order
the arrest and trial liy court-martial of Gen.
Grant for disobedience of orders iu surrender
ing the office to Mr. Stanton; aud beta to that
effect were freely offered by seine of the pres
ident's sympathizers. That be will not recog
uize Mr. Stuntou as a member of his Cabinet
'- certain, aud a message toC ingress announc
ing -urh intention is said to have been already
prepared and is hourly‘expected. A large
number of the Republican Congressmen called
on .Mr. Stuntou yesterday aud in the course el
the conversation he remarked that "lie should
not leave the War Department until he was
forcibly ejected." A letter has also is eu pre
sented to bim signed by fifty or more members
of the House, requesting him not to re-den.
When the President learned of his occupation
of his former post, he remarked that “If the
officers of the War Department wi-b to tar
nish Mr. Stanton with office room in thst
building, he bad no particular objections," and
on yesterday ho issued orders that no com
munication with the War Department be sent
or received through Sir. Stanton, who would
muter no circumstances be recoguized as See
ret try of Wav or a member of tbe Cabinet."
tin the whole, matters seem to be in a mighty
bad muddle, aud what with the dogged obsti
nacy of the President, the pluck of Rtantnu,
the cool determination of Grant and Ihern
resolve of the Senate, there seems to W a pros
pect ahead for a big fight or a foot race. Dar
ing the se««!ou or the Cabinet, yesterday,
Generals Grant and Shermau called on Mr.
Johnson and had a long private interview with
him, the purport or result of which have not
yet transpired. It is no! true as stated in
many of the Democratic papers that the first
cmcuu act ol Mr. Siautou was to draw j*ome
&1,W)0 salary, covering lire time since his sus
pension. On the contrary lie refuses to re
ceive any compensation tor that period ami
contends that he is not entitled to it. Neither
is it true that Gen. Grant violated the confi
dence of the Prcsideut.iu surrendering the of
fice to Stanton. The fact is that the Presi
dent hud endeavored to persuade Gen. Grant
that it was his duty to retain possession of the
ofiioe until relieved by his order; but instead
nf fit niliitiu-inrr in fkiu vir.nr us*' *1.. .... U .. ...It
ed ou Saturday last and distinctly informed
him that ‘‘iu case the Seuate should reinstate
Mr. Stanton he should not feel authorized to
act longer as Secretary n| War." Gen. Grant
himself nukes and authorizes this plain de
nial of the statement which has been circulat
ed about his action in the matter, and the fact
that he aud the President still continue ou
friendly terms sufficiently refutes tbe slaudcr.
FEBNANDYWCD ON TUB KAMTAOE.
The accustomed order aud trauquility of the
proceedings of tbe House were considerably
disturbed by the bcll.gereut demonstrations ol
the‘‘distinguished gentleman from New York,
Mr. Wood," snd for a time it seemed not im
probable that the professional services of his
equally distinguished colleague * the Hou.
Mr. Morrissey” Would be called into requisi
tion. The wrath of the Hou. Feruaody has
liecn so luug bottled up that he was unable
longer to coutain it aud on yesterday the cork
popped out with a most delightful fizz; to his
own very great relief aud the entertaimeut ot
the “ Hour and galleries.” As but hall of his
tirade had been delivered when he was called
to the bar of the House to answer for words
spokcu in debate, the country uuy calculate
on another installment as soon as his modesty
has sufficiently recovered from the effects of
the Speaker’s reprimand. Feruandy seemed
to regard the censure as a mere farce and walk
ed to the speaker’s desk with as much dignity
and suavity as though he were, about to ad
dress a mob of “ping uglies” in the purlieus
of the Five Points. During the excitement
the Sergcant-at-Arms sent for the Capitol Po
lice force, and they were all ready to march in
and Se ttle things had the occasion required it.
TBE 8UUHATT THIAL.
flic District Attorney announced in Ihe
Criminal Court yesterday that he has consult
ed Surratt’s counsel—Mr. Merrick—in regard
to fixing an early day for the trial, and that ar
rangements would probably be made to have
it take place sometime next month. Surratt
is still confined in the Washington jail, and
lias been gradually improving in health since
his first trial. There seems to lie hut little
probability of liis conviction, even if his com
plicity in the assassination should be proved.
It is impossible to get a Jury hereon which

—Tbe Paris wits hare not done jet with
Marshal Kiel, who sought the other day to
prove that the forced celibacy to which the ar

utes to the geueral welfare. He denied that
tbe marriageable girls in France had any rea
son to complain that the conscription deprived
them of eligible husbands. He laid down that
the youug men rejected by the military1 boards
of inspection as unfit for soldiers, through the
loss of one eye, of several teeth, other bodily
infirmities and weak nesses of constitution,
were not by reason of these disadvantages un
fit for marriage. Never perhaps in a French
assembly has marriage been so seyerely reduc
ed to a simple question of tbe reproduction of
the species! Can a one-armed, one-eyed young
man produce healthy children? Yes, says sci
ence. Tbe question Is then settled, and what
have the young girls to complain of? Such is
the argument of Marshal Niel. Man is a re
productive animal and nothing more.
