'The court said, in determining against the constitutionality of the act The appaling feature 'in this neact ij~s o fond in section three, which abso W lately prohibits the funding commiis siºn from acting until the courts should determine whether certain bonds or contracts which they desig-. m- nate as questioned should be valid or t riot. T.he Legislature has no power it antnhority to raise a question as to in the validity or corroctness of a con tract after the contriact is nmade, and a declaration to that effect is there - fore idle and nugiitory.

Th1 Conspiracy to Mako Grant ef Pay Fare. - tf the iroceeding whelreby, the SP'resident 'f the United States was " eonipelled to pay his railroaid fare like an humble:citizen, the Kiingtou (New r oik) Freeinan says: c, Mr. Gooilwin's action is probablyl, c.r par'te ant results from an innate Ct tlis osiioe:e to make mis'hief ratih Ir s tha from niobie tlesire to promin:te 'n the' end of justice. Th'le President , and his ,nite are suddenly thrown " linpo their owni res1ourc.es in resplect e of getting over the New York and ' New HIaveni while on a lpi,.us and 1r patriotic pilgrimage to Conlcord to 't attend the centeinial celebratio, of 'r thel revolutionary skirmish there. e Th1 hiahtus in this case is (deiploralhl iani mortify ing. General Geniat, with 1 his entire natural and milital y iouse hold, arrived at tl;e FJ'th A:'e:,ue hotel on Thursday evening on the n way to the!old Granite State. They expected free translportation, ias theci hlofty position hiefoire the country jus tifies thele in doing. And the rail e roads-thei' ewYork and New Haven among tile rest-were willing and anxions to accord this courtesy. All was well nUltil the party got to the Snetropolis., There they ran squari'e and smack alp against Goodwin's in julinctionl. Like a Iregimelelit of crip pled veterans running against, let us say, the ClIiniese wall, there was ino getting ardund this injmectiom uor r ovel it. There was only one way to ldodge the injunction, and the party was put up to it by a telegram from George Wiinihington Chills, A. M., of Philadelphia, who had been inftilrml ed tf the troulble. The brief and lbrilliant dispaltch is said to have been tcouched in the following terms: P'IIILADiELPrIIA, April 15, 1875. * To r. S. Grant etc.: Injunction don't apply to you. Yon are not a "ser ant of the Uuid State," but its Imaster. Ha ! a !h. 16-9 i-coulrct. CIIILD, Babcock seized the telegram and rushed to Forty-second street to tind I MIr. Bishop, President of the New York and New Haven Railroad. Ile ran Ibreathless into Bishop's office and shouted : "We've got the bulge on Goodwin-we've euchred the Yankee Judge; see here-see how Childs puts it; and Childs is ai stateman as well as the greatest epitaphist in the world." "Twon't do, Babcock," an swered Mr. Bishop; "you recollect, perhaps, how the elections are going. The people won't stand it. You'll have to pay your fare or stay away. Sorry. The whole thing's mneaneIr'n pnsley, but it can't be helped. You can borrow the ioney of Gould and make it all rightisvith himn when lie wants anythingiln Washington." The battle-scarred factotum went .back to the hotel anid reported to his chief. Geieral Grant listened with fiid cns ternary intellectual ailertness, and for the first time in hiss life betrayed p.al lmomentary selrprise, which Ihe al lowed to express itself in a senten- i tions phrase. Blowing from hlis lips at cloud of smoke' from ia fifty cent regalia, he said, this is all a dream,. Babcock."

ANoEDOTs OF GEx. ItlE.-Several I iiteresting anecdotes have been late ly told of Gen.

Another, whlich we ale not I aware of having hellretfore beetn pub- c lishled is fold by that gallant and ge nial .Maryland gentleiean. Col. Kane. a On his way on oue occalsionl to visit Gen.

T'he first and most important part is gettilt:; eed. It pays to plant the ,t Nst 1sel ont the manrket, lought of i- dalr:' of known merit and honesty.

Phlating is the net point t:o conusider. The griand should be plowed a),1d phma1ted inminediately, not giving the wreils and gra-s a chance to get a week the start, but start all out together, and the seeds will spr)'llt out quicker tthan the weeds.
