It isa ?jiK'stion of interest from ttie fact that lines were applied by the constitution of the State to the Literary ?uud. The decision ap jvcars tous to establish tin. idea that the funding bill is superior to the constitu? tion of the Suite ami Ihat the constitu? tion itself,srheneviT it is in conflict with the funding bill, is unconstitutional. Wc alsopubli?h the dissenting opiniou of Judge Staple5. Our readers who '?an not agivo with Judge Staple* can lind tlici'.' ideas expressed by Judge Christian. The much mooted question la now set tl?.?.I by a decision of our Supreme Court, and. whatever our in 'lividual opiuiotis may be, it is the law of the State, nnlesa '.he ea?c should be carri-d to the Supreme Court of the L'uited Status for final decision. Tins decisioa, of course covers the question as to the payment of the S.hooi tax. Every cent of the State School tax can be paid In coupons, and notwith? standing the fact that the tax is levied especially for the support of the schools, the entire amount can be applied to the payment of interest upon the pub? lic debt. The further discussion of the subject is unnecessary. Future legis? lation will decide the question by in? creasing the taxes or by repudiating the debt. Hill There be Pc are er War in Europe . ' lol.is is a question which nobody i? yet ; ib!e to answer, England is ready for, war, but she cauaot begin w ith any safe prospecto* success wit bout the cooper-[ ation of Austria, bi.cause she cannot raise and ?end out for operations o" j land an army sufficient to cope with the ?rreat and victorious forces of the Crar. j Neither can she carry on an effective! warbv sea against a power that has.' comparatively speaking, no navy either' military or commercial, and no foreign ' oonmeroe.

Bal with Uta aid of Austria, the Eu |lish problem woul?! be ea?y. That priver et uld at once put in the field an army sufficient to compel the Russians to retreat precipitately ont of Tnr?ey. But will ?uch an army now be marched across the Danube'? Austrian and Hungarian statesmen and legislators talk a good deal, but as let they have ds/iie nothing ; and no observe.-, howev? er shrewd, can t?vl! what the.r ultimate action will bo. The man who controls the whole of .oblem is in Berlin. It IS I? BOarck. He has the posver and prestige of the German empire behind him If lie i* un willing. Austria will not under? take a war ; and his purpose la still wrapped In mystery. This is the- 68* s-ence. of the whole complication which nosv holds all mind? in doubt through? out the world.

In the case of Clarke BgairsSl Tyler, I Sergeant of the city of ltichmond, the Supreme Court of'Appeals vcsterdas ; decided that the ease of Autmtii Bgainsl | Wright (22d Grattan) settled it thai lbs funding bill created an irrepealable ?on j tract between the State and the holders of consol bonds; that there svas nothing I la the pretension that because lines are ! dedicated to public schools they could ? not be paid in coupons ; that fines could , he paid in coupon ; and that the cou ' poos niiist be taken at their face-value. Judge Christian delivered the opinion I of the Court, concurred in by Judges i Anderson and Burks. Judge Moncure. owning some State bond?, .lid not sit in the trial of the case. Judge Staples dissented. Mr. W. L. Rovall was counsel for Clarke. The Attorney-General appeared nominally for Tyler, but really for the Male. OPINION 01" THE COURT. This case is before us upon a petition tiled by James Clarke invoking the original jurisdiction of this Court torn ?vril of habeas corpus. The petition and the record therewith tiled show that the petitioner (Clarke) is confined jinjail under an execution (copiiu p/o fine) issued upon a judgment of the Hustings Court of the city of Richmond for the sum of ?30, the fine assesse-i by said court, and 122.05, the costs of prosecution on behalf of the Common? wealth. It is further shown that tlet- ? etitioner tendered to James II. Tyler, Sergeant of the city of Uichmoud' "a coupon which svas ?hi?- and pas* maturity for |30, which said connota was?***! from a bond of the State ol VTaginia issaed un? der the provisions of the act of Assem? bly, passed Mardi J), LttTl. commonly kuown as the funding bill," and the sum ol $22.05 in money, that being the amount of conts. The city Sergeant! refused lo receive the coupons tendered m payment of the line imposed by the court: and thereupon Clarke applied to! ibis court for a writ of habeas corpus, ; and insiste noon his right to pay the line assessed agaiust him by the littst* iiii-s Coartin a coupon of a bond of the | State; and that upon such payment,! svitb the costs of prosecution, he is en titled to his discharge item finlber im prisonmt ni. This record, therefore, presents for our consideration the Single question, whether a fine imposed tora violation of law can be discharged in coupons, or whether It can only he demanded and naid in money f This is the same question which waa elaborately argued at the January term of this Court, ?u the case of "Tyler. Sergeant, vs. Taylor, Auditor." That case was argued upon a ?petition for a writ of mandamtss to this Court to com pel the Auditor ol Public Accounts to receive ?ram the Sergeant ol the citv oi Richmond certain coupons which had been received by him in payment i.l n flue Imposed on one Mayor for a crimi? nal offence. Iu that case this Court unanimously held that the writ of mandamus could not he Isaued against lite And.tor ol Public Accounts, because he ?vas not the public officer whose duty il -vas. un? der the law, to receive lines collected by the City Sergeant, and declaring that this Court could only exercise its ex? traordinary juiiiai'clion by way ol maw? dumus to compel a public officer to .ha? cha,ge a duty winch the law imp ,.?i d on /?nn, and nut on another. And Inas? much as the City Treaturer, and not the Auditor ot Public Accounts, was the public officer whose duty it was to re? ceive all lines collected by the Cty Sergeant, the rule was discharge,1 and tnc case dismissed without deciding the question on its mei ?ta. In that case it waa laid, and ?a here repeated: "This Court is always ready und Willing 10 decline, to the best of its ; ability, all questions, however iinpor- ; tant or ditlicult, or however they may, affect public or private interests, which j are properly brought bet?re it. no mat ter how great or far-reaching may be the responsibilities it must assume in such decision. But the Court is not willing, nor is it any part o? its judicial fuuclinnt, to decide queatious outside of the case before it. and Ihm constitute itself amoot court, to determine abstract questions." The ?pic-stiou argu?-?! in the case ol "Tyler, Sergeant, vs. Taylor. Auditor," did not arise upon the pleadings in the cause, and the Court did not (for the reasons stat?'d in ?1? opinion) feel called upon to decide an abstract question. But the same question uow ?iocs arise properly upon the records in this case, and the court is now prepared to meet the question and assume all M?e rasp?n? s.bilit?es which may attach to Its decis? ion, however it may affect individual or public rights, private or political ques? tions. But the question we have to deter? mine (however it is sought to be con? nected with questions which arc the subject, unhappily, of political agitation) is purely a legal question, to he deter? mined upon well-defined legal princi? ples, and the rules of construction uni? versally recognized as applicable to the statut* taw, it all depends upon tin truc cjiislriiction to be given to the 2d section of the act approved March 30, 1871. entitled "An act to provide far the funding and payment of the public debt." TblS section, ?fier drc.ariii:.' mat the owners of any of the bonds. stocks, or interest-eeriilicates herereto ? lore ISSUeo ny tins ?state * * mas I fond two third? of the amount of the same * * " in six-percentum cou? pons or registered bonds of tliN State Ac, contains the following provision j "The bonils shall be made payable to order or bearer and the couponi to bearer at the Treasury ol the State, and bonds payable to order may be exchang? ed for bonds payable to bear ,r, and registered bonds may be exchanged for coupon bonds, or rief tersa, at the op? tion of the holder. The coupons shall be payable Semi-annuslly and receiva? ble ai and after maturity for all tax? ?. debts, dues, aud demands, due the Mate Which shall be so expivsvd on their lace.'1 The only question, then, sve have to determine is whether fines imposed for a violation of law are in clinled within the terms of the statute . I say this is the only question svu have to determine, becausa the question of the constitutionality of the act soove re? tened to, known as the funding act. ha* already been determined by this Court. I The case of Antoni vs. VTrigbl (22 : (?rattan) settles this question. The a.ime arguments again I its constitution- j 'ality tua.!.' in ibis ms,; ?rere urged in tut!. I refer to that case, and adopt; ils principles ami reasoning aa a clear and loncliisive exposition of the law, and am of opinion that this decision 01I tin* Court, declaring the constitutionality of the act of March 30.1871, and ?declar? ing that any act of the Legislature iu conflict with the provisions of that act, so far as it may "forbid the collectiu^ ofli'-ers of the ?State to receive in par i meut of taxes and other demands of the ?State anything else than gold or silver i coin. United States Treasury noie*, or notes of t'.ic natienal banks of the Uuit ? ?I States." must be held to be an act, "impairing the ob'igation of a contract." and therefor?: unconstitutional and void. This decision of Antoni va. Wright was lecoonized and r?affirme?! in WUo Brothers vs. Rogers, Auditor, and Maiuy & Co. vs, sime ('.Mil (?rattan), and must now ho held to be the settle?! law of this State. It is uot necessary, therefore, aud indeed it would be a vain ? i land useless task, to attempt to go over! tin-tain the reas ms which ?-ovcriicd this !

Wright isa lucid, able, and conclusive exposition of the law. iw one base?! upon judicial logic ami fortified by judical authority, which makes it impregnable agaiusl every as? sault which may be made upon it. Adopting, therefore, the principles and reasoning in the case of Antoni ss. Wright, we are lettin this atas to a sin? gle and very narrow- impur?-; and that is, Are fines imposed for a violation .n law included iu the purview of the stat? ute'" One of the principal and universal ly adopted rules of construction of stat? ute? is that in the enactment of statutes the rule of interpretation is, in respect lo the intention of the Legislature, that where the language is explicit the courts are bound to seek f* '.be intention, in the ?vord8 of the act itself, and they are not?t liberty to suppose or to hold thai ti.e Legislature intended au) thing differ? ent from what their lauguage iruparis.?

Second. It is objected that././)?.? are dedicated by the Constitution, and b) statute enacted in pursuance thereof, to the literary tuud for school purposes.and il the act under consideration embraces Ihn?-.to that extent it is unconstitution? al. Now, it is to bu observed thai neithei the Constitution nor any act parsed in pursuance there of requires the collec? tors t?f the public revenue?'.nor the Aud? itor, to keefj stperatt and dittimct each particular fiat attested against njl'en decs and pay it over, a? collected, to the lit? erary lund. 1 ut lbs 11 quin in. nt ??.upon lair construction, to turn over to the literary fund ic/iutecrraiii<i?uf may come into the Treasury from the tottrct of tita,i, and ?iedicair that amount to the purpose Indicated.

That ?hsciission and my own more d?lib?r?t?! ?etleetions. have but ?lengthened my convictions of the soundne?? and justice of my opinion then entertained.

Indeed, has Gov? ernment abdicated its fonction*, ami the State stripped itstdt ofone of its altri? butes of Sovereignty. To this but one answer has ercr Ik bu given that de.?crves the name of answer, and that Is, that it is the duly of the Leg ?latine to laya ?nfliciciit tax lo pat the creditor and carry on the UuVeru? ment To thial answ.r: That howevei ?innig the oblg.it.on the Public I).

Tin amount of taxation the people can ' i ar. tue mode of imposing and colleetin : it, is a political queatleu to be determined, not hs the Courts, but the represen talives of the people, from time te 'inie, H Ihe public exigencies may r quire.

It !CHimol abritlge its own legislative power ? by making permanent aud indissoluble ?contracta in reference to mutters of \ public interest." With ibis brief discussion. I am con? tent to leave this branch of the subject though, parhapa, I have said more than was necessary. I deaire further to add, that the precise question now before us waa not before ua in the Ant.uii vs. Wright. It ia true that it was discussed by both Judge Bouldln and .fudge I Anderson, and, while it is perhaps fully | covered by the reasoning of the I ,t was nol neies-aiily ?h cided. I agre? thai the Funding Act is broad ? .. to include lines imposed for UM '? iola'ioli ol the laws, and for that very reason 1 thought, and still think, that it 1? vhda live of ibe sevvulll secliou of ?lie i Igtll li article of the Constitution <ff Virginia.

Take the line In I - case. If the petitioner may pay it in coupons, any other person upon whom a iiue is Imposed mav ,.o likewise .- An not such fines m effect for all practica? purposes appropriated to the pay men, of the public debt'' I can aee no mfier i?Oce between a law which applies then directly to the pay nn nt of the interest on the public debt, and a law w authorizes them tobe paid in coupons. The answ? again Is, thai the L latura mu t increase the taxes, ami supply the deficiency from others??urces. But the question ?till ?ir;-. ?. cm h Legislature divert a fund Irora the pur posesot the trust under the Com dim, and justify its action by re upon Mother I.' gislaturu to another fund Irom another - n nieel lbs o'.j. eta of Ihe trust?
