PROCEEDINGS IN CONGRESS.
An Important Decision by tlio s«. prcme Court. Washington, March 4.—Commodore Up shur was examined for promotion at the navy department prior to being assigned to the command of a squadron. Commodore Lace will probably succeed Commodore Up sliar in the command of the Brooklyn navy yard. Ill the legal tender case of Juillard V. S Greenmau decided by tlio United Slates su preme court, tlio question presented was whether notes of the United States, issued in time of war,under acts of congress declaring them to be a legal tender m payment of private debts, mid afterwards in time of peace redeemed under the act of 1ST8 can, under the constitution, be a legal tender ill tiie payment of such debts. The court holds that the caso presented is not distinguishable in principal from those decided and reported by mail in his twelfth, thirteenth, fifteenth and twenty-fourth volumes. All the justices agree ill this except Justice Field, who ad heres to his dissenting opinion in the case mentioned. Congress it is held, lias power to issue obligations in such forms and to im press upon them such qualities as currency, tlio purchase of merchandise, and the pay ment of debts as accord with tlio usage of sovereign goverments. the power is in cluded in that to borrow money and provide a national currency. The opinion was by Justico Gray. Senate. .
