XHOTIAS, of Clarke. i.it ; Gold closed la New York 14474". ' Saturday at What the Zanesville Courier What the Zanesville Courier Would do Well to do. The Zsnemille Courier would do well to .inform Hi readers that In 1862 Senator " ' Johh P; Hals stated that our liberties were in greater danger from the corruption and profligacy of officials In office than from the enemy In the field; that Representative - Eawb6, ' from - Massachusetts,? said , in a ' speech in the House, the same -year, that there was indubitable evidence that some body had stolen from the Treasury of the' United States,'darlng the first year of Re publican rule, more than it cost to carry on every department, of the Government under President Buchanan; and that jDonic Piatt has testified voluntarily that from' the hour of Lincoln's inauguration to that of his death, "the thieves were all ' in office," and that they stole with such au dacity as to perfectly, astonish all honest men ; but that finally all cries of shame were abandoned, and "the thieves" allow e 1 to go on with perfect impunity. If the Democrats were disloyal," as the Courier untruthfully asserts, and if through them 'the War came upon the country, was it necessary was it incumbent upon them that Republican' officials should turn thieves and plunderers? -1 , ,,. Westerville. -, One of the most delightful towns in county is Westerville the seat of the Ot "terbein University. It has frown rapidly, within a few years, and it gives every sign ; - of healthy and vigorous prosperity. Quite! number of new buildings are La course, of erection, and yet the demand for bouses will be by no means supplied. If forty or ! fifty new tenement houses were erected, they would all be quiokly taken at rents 1 that would pay a liberal per centage upon the cost of construction. For neatness and : good order Westerville can not be surpassed by any place in the country. The society j Is very good. Music, with its refining and I elevating influence, is cultivated as one of ; tfn specialties by the young ladies. Noth-j ing seems wanting to make this a charming plaee to live tn. The University, lite the town, la in a flourishing condition.' Equal Taxation Club.

The Con- . titulion of this club was prepared by a . mixed committee of Democrats and Repub licans. 'The Injustice and jrroog of taxing the soldier and exempting the bondholder serve as a platform on which all men of just ad honest feeling may take a stand. Add ed to this is that other plank W which is written, "Hostility to every attempt to ex tort from the toil of the oople gold pay ment of Government bonds that are legally payable in green backs." Radical Workingmen's Meeting at Zanesville. Great efforts were made to get up a Rad ical Worklngmen's meeting a sort of White Blackbrid meeting on Thursday evening. It tea a tremendous affair the. , largest number being present at any one time was twenty-two, which embraced Re publican wire pullers and candidates for office. Workingmen are tired contributing two hours from each days hard toil to maintain the policy of the Republican party, which is to exempt Bonds from tax ation, diminish the quantity of money in circulation and to make a Hay ti out of the South. - x Death of U.

' Mr. Myers has long been connected with the newspaper and printing business, and for the past six or eight years has been State Printer of Pennsylvania, and is well known in this and the adjoining States.

By order of Com. - Judge Green's Decision—Its Nature and Effect. The-decision of Judge Grebn, in the ' Scioto Bridge " case, being the subject of much comment and some misrepresentation we have requested and obtained his per mission to extract from It so much as dis cusses the provisions of the several statutes Involved in the question, and the construc tion they should receive. We publish below that portion of the opinion, some what condensed, from which it will be seen that his ruling does not involve the consequences that have been suggested, and that it is sustained by a course of rea soning that it will be difficult to refute. Alter quoting at some length from ele mentary books and reported cases, the rules and. maxims for the construction of statutes, the opinion proceeds to say : " From these rules and maxims, we deduce the duty of the fudge. He is to ascertain, by applying settled principles, the Intention of the Leg' lslatnre, when that intention Is rendered doubtful by reason of ambiguity or uncer tainty In the language of the statute.. The intention Is, primarily, to be sought for in the words of the statute. It is only when the words are not explicit that the Inten tlon is to be arrived at from the occasion and necessity for the law, or by resort to extraneous matters. - Though the intention Is the great object of the roles and max ims of interpretation, yet, in order to give effect to what he may conjecture to have been the purpose of the Legislature, the judge must not put upon the provisions of a statute a construction not warranted or supported by the words, though the conse quences should be to defeat the law. When the sense of a statute is evident, and ex pressed in clear and J precise terms, not tending to conclusions, which are absurd, and at war with the manifest intention, there is no room for construction. In such a ease, to go off on conjecture, and travel In quest of extraneous matters in order to restrict or enlarge the operation of the words, wonld be a dangerous and gross perversion of the law itself. "We. find it, then, declared in the act of May a, 1868, (O.L.V0L60, p. 176,) 'That the county commissioners shall not, hereaf ter, make any purchase or enter Into any contract or engagement for the erection of any infirmary, court bouse, jail, bridge, culvert, or other publlo building or im provement," by which a larger amount of money or expense is involved than $15,000, without first submitting the question, as to the policy of such outlay er expense in- voivea uierein, to me quaiinea voters 01 the county, either at the annual spring or tall elections,' etc. "No language could be more clear, ex plicit, comprehensive and imperative than this. ' There would, therefore, seem to ' be no room for construction. " "But I am required to consider this law, in connection with the special- act of March 13, 1868, (O. L. vol. 65, p. 221) in re- lition to the bridge in question; and to determine whether anything Is to be found In that act which will authorize a conclu sion that it wa3 the intention of the Leg islature that the restriction upon the pow er ot the. County Commissioners, imposed by the general law of May 9, should not apply to the special act of March 13. "That act (sec. 1) provides that the Com missloner8 of Franklin county be and they are hereby authorized to levy a tax not exceeding one mill on the dollar oa the to tal valuation of the taxable property of said county for the year 1868, for the pur pose of constructing a bridge across the Scioto river; said bridge shall be erected across said river at such point as the Com missioners may designate, between the Na tional road bridge at Broad street, and the bridge over said river on the Columbus and Harrisburg turnpike. "Section 2 empowers the Commissioners to borrow money, cot exceeding one-half the amount collected from the tax,' for a period of one year at a rate of interest not exceeding six per cent, per annum ; and declares that the money so borrowed shall be applied to the construction of said bridge. : "When two statutes, in pari materia, are to be considered, if the provisions of the one are repugnant to those of the other, so that both cannot stand together, the later act must prevail. But if by any fair construc tion the repugnancy may be reconciled eoJ that both can be executed, both shall stand, and in determining the question we may seek for the purpose of the law-maker in the reason and spirit of both laws, and the mischief that required a remedy, sub ject, however, to those cannons of eon struction which have been already con sidered. - ' "The purpose ot this special act of March 16 is obvious. It was to confer upon ' them , power, which they had not under the general law, and which they could not exercise, unless by further legislative grant. 1st To levy a greater rate of taxation than is authorized by the general law. 2d To 'authorize them to borrow money. 'There is then clearly no repugnancy in the two statutes. The special act simply confers power lndlspensible to the attain ment of the particular purpose the build ing of a bridge the cost of which will ex ceed $15,000. This power may be exer cised in entire and perfect harmony with the restriction imposed by the act of May 9, which requires the question of the policy of the expenditure to be submitted to the people. "What was the mischief intended to be remedied by the general law last named? We have seen that as far back as 1856 the Legislature has considered it expedient and proper to impose a restriction on the pow er of County Commissioners in the expend iture of the public money fixing the limit in 1856 at $5,000, in 1S66 at $10,000, and finally, in 1868, at f 15,000. If the policy of this restriction Is wise and salutary, it is so in Franklin county as in any other. The case is clearly within the mischief to be remedied, and I am not aware of any sufli cient reason for making it an exception. "ine ruie tuat repeats Dy implication, ir not favored, has no application. The gene rai law of May 9th repeals none of the pro visions of the special act. It neither takes away nor Impairs any of the powers con ferred on the Commissioners by the special act of March 13. It simply imposes a con dition on the exercise of those powers. which the Legislature had the undoubted authority to do. "But if the general law did repeal and im pair any of the provisions of. the special act, that effect must be glvji to it, as tb words of the general law are expressly neg alive. " 'The County Commissioners shall not hereafter make any purchase or enter infa any contract,' " &c. , Upon this point the opinion cites numer ous authorities aa to the effect of a genera statute with negative words, in repealing the provisions of a prior special law, which are inconsistent with those of the general law. The Judge then proceeds : ' ; "It is argued that this general law was in tended to apply only to cases where thes public buildings and Improvements are un dertaken in pursuance of the power con ferred on County Commissioners by th general law prescribing their duties, and not to cases where by special acts such buildings and improvements are aothoriz ed that such has been the uniform con- struction given to these special acts, and that to establish a difierent rule would cre ate much difficulty and confusion. I am referred to numerous special acts passed IM""ll"aaaaaaaaaBaaaaaal IB from 1856 to 1867 for the purpose of author ising -Court Houses, bridges, Ac, where, acting upon that construction, the Com missioners of the respective counties have proceeded without obtaining the sanction ot the popular vote ; and further, that the provisions ot the special act in question show that it could not have been intended that the question should be submitted to the people. .:''; .1. 1 1 ' t i . "Undoubtedly where a construction of law has long been received and acted upon, it Is entitled to much consideration, even thongh erroneous, for common error it is said sometimes makes common law. "But I have examined many of the In stances in which it is claimed that this con struction has been acted upon, under spe cial acts aud I find that those acts contain language that may well admitof such con struction- Among the local laws of 1867 will be found special acts authorizing the commissioners of Fairfield, Mercer, Stark and Delaware counties to build court bouses in their respective counties. ' The language of those acts Is, 'The commis sioners are hereby authorized' Ho con- struct' ot to buiUT a court house.' The same authority to build' or 'to construe?, is given to the commissioners in aa act in re lation to an infirmary in Greene county in relation to a bridge in Ross county In relation to a jail In Montgomery county. Turning to the local acta of 1868, 1 find the same authority to build', or to erect' given to the commissioners in the several acts in relation to a court house in Monroe county, to bridges la Muskingum county, to a bridge Ju Montgomery county; to a court house in--Greene county, to a court house in Darke county. In all of these cases the expenditure will exceed $15,000, and In all of them we find express author ity conferred to do the thing proposed, and as a consequence ', to dispense with a submission to a popular vote. . For the purpose of ascertaining how far this legislation has been consistent, I have ex amined the local laws since and including the year I860, and I find that with,' I think, but four or five exceptions la all the special acts in relation to the public build ings and improvements, referred to in the. general law Imposing this restriction on the power of the Commissioners, the language is uniformly 'authorized to build,' 'to erect' or Mo construct.' Thus by special laws nullifying this . provision of the general liw. ' But by the Scioto bridge act we are considering, the Commissioners are an. thorized not to build, to erect or to construct a bridge, but to levy a tax for the purpose of constructing a bridge. . . "I do not undertake to say that the lan guage employed by the General Assembly of Ohio, in. the laws It enacts, furnishes at all times a certain or safe guide to the in tention ; but it is very clear, as shown by these numerous special acts, that if we re sort to language, to aid us in this case, there is a uniformity in the words employed, that leaves us no alternative. When we find in this body of legislation a provision clearly indicating an intention to confer authority on County Commissioners to pro ceed without consulting any other source of power, and in a particular case, as in the special act for this bridge, an omission to use the language or its equivalent, from which such intention in the other cases is derived, the conclusion may well be con ceded, that it was intended in this case that the question shall be referred to that other source of power, the people. "I may conjecture that it was supposed that the language of this special act of March 13th would take it out of the opera tion of the existing law, and that it was supposed that the restriction of the act of May 9th" would not reach it ; but my pres ent duty is not to conjecture, and upon that make law. 'I must expound the statutes on what the Legislature have -said. Not cn wbat.it bas omitted to say. . . ".But what is there in the terms of this special act to show that this could not have been the intention ? It is asked why au thorize the levy of a tax, if the vote of the people was necessary before the bridge should be built? ' The answer is obvious. "Sou must go to the Legislature for power to levy a tax of one mill on the dollar and to borrow money. You can't build the bridge until you get it. The question then is, shall application Jbe made to the Legis lature to confer this power before or after you take the vote? You can do either. Again, it is said that this special act was passed two months before the law of May 9. : And on that day, for aught the General Assembly could. know, the tax may have been levied, the money borrowed, and the bridge, put under contract. It could not, therefore, have been intended that, notwith standing all this had been done, the question must be submitted to the people. I answer certainly not." If the special act had thus been executed, a case would have been.'made which would remove the restriction. The language of a general law, though sufficient for the purpose, literally, is not to be con strued as intended to operate on transac tions and things passed, done and closed, before it took effect ; but as none of these things had been done on May 9, the argu ment fails." The opinion then proceeds to consider the objection urged in this connection, that the construction claimed will give to the act a retroactive operation, which is for bidden by the Constitution. The Judge holds that in no light can this be considered a retroactive law in the sense in which the prohibition is to be understood. It oper ates on no vested right of the citizen or of a private corporation, but simply imposes a rule by which these public agents are to be governed in expending the public money. $100 Silk Banner. .
