C. II., Va.. as second-class matter.
A decision ot'tlie SupremeCourt
of the United States, in the Vir
Cjnia coupon eases, was rendered
la-t Monday in favoi of the bond
h dilers and against, the State. The
''Riddlebergereoupnn killer"and all
o'her acts of the Virginia Legisln
tu e. which forbids the payment of
taxes in coupons were adjudged by
the court unconstitutional, in that,
by them t! e validity of the State's
contracts with the holders of the
bonds was impaired. Such the de?
cision, briefly, anil the effect of it
must be. that hereafter, when cou?
pons are r tiered in payment of tax?
es, they must be accepted. The
tax collector who hereafter at?
tempts to enforce the payment of
taxes in money after said tender
has been made, by levying upon
the fax] over's property does so at
his own personal peril. Such a tax
collector; in other words would, be?
come an individual trespasser whom
the -taxpayer and coupon holder
has the right to treat as a wrong
doer7" and that being the case, of
course, he will accept the coupons.
Such is tin- dilemma in which lhe
decision of the Supreme Court has
placed ks. That it will operate as
a great hardship to Virginia we
believe. But the evil great as it
may be, and. whatever the finan?
cial straits to which it may reduce
us has to be met, but how is the
question? It cannot be bv a repu?
diation in whole or in part of the
debt. The Supreme Court being
the court of last resort,-its decis-j
ion must operate as an effectual
bar to any such proceedings. It
seems now, we must pay the debt
either wholly, or in part by a Com?
promise with our creditors, if that
can be effected. Mr. Roy a II the
counsel for the bondholders thinks
that the creditors would agree to a
compromise. If they will not. then
the present rate of interest must be
paid on the debt and can be out of
our revenue arising from present
rate of taxation, if the editorial
writer of the Baltimore Sun is cor?
rect, without any serious detriment
to the State. An extract from the
editorial to which reference is
made is as follows:
-If tbe amount of TLor in laipon
falling due annually were greater
than or equal to the entire revenue
of the Stare, the effect of the cou?
pon contract?which the court pro
not; trees equally with the constitu?
tion of the United States, "iire
] ealable by any act on its part"?
might, be disastrous to the public
schools and the judicial and ad?
ministrative machinery of the
State, but happily these interests
do not consume, it is stated, more

revenue approaching ?;;.0(JO,ooo in
amount, leaving nearly 81,000,000
to meet the ?1,400,0(10 of interest
accruing annually on the entire
The above extract, colors too
highly, we believe, our prospects
f ir the solution of our debt trou?
bles and if correcr, would not be
acceptable to the people. They do
not believe, and in that opinion we
concur that a debt created "in
sin and iniquity" as much of our
debt has been, should be paid to
the last farthing. The remedy
which will relieve us to a greater
extent of the burden, which the
debt imposes upon us, other than
that which our creditors choose to
give us, we hope will be found.?
"We fear it will not be.
The decision with all ?ts evils,
happily removes the debt questiou
forever from politics in Virginia.?
Mali one and his henchmen may en?
deavor to use it as a hobby to ride
into office, but no one will be de
ceived. They have had control of
the whole machinery of govern?
ment and such laws have been en?
acted as they willed but all to no
purpose. They have not only
failed to accomplish what they
promised, but have also pi evented
us from accepting the provisions of
the McCulloh Bill, which would
have given us some relief and was
acceptable to our creditors. JTow
deinagognery on the debt question
must cease, and we can only hope
by ignoring it as a party question,
to select our best men as legisla
tors, and trust them by wise legis
latiou to relieve us as much as pos?
sible of the ills that now so sadly
beset us.

The Supreme Court Declares in Faror
tne Bondholders and Ayainst
the State.
The United States Supreme Court
rendered an important decision
yesterday in the group of cases
known as the Virginia coupon t/ix
cases involving the validity of the
recent legislation of the State with
reference to the payment of State
taxes in the coupons of the State's
bonds. The decision was against
the State and in favor of the bond?
holders on all material points. The
court holds that all the legislation
of the State which attempts to
evade the obligation under which
it rests to receive the cottpous of
its bonds in payment of State tax?
es is unconstitutional and void, be
cause it impairs the obligation of a:
contract; that the tax payer, hav?
ing once made a due tender of cou?
pons in payment of his taxes, is un?
der no obligation to pay such taxes
in money, but may rest securely on
his right to have the coupons receiv?
ed when offered, and that a tax col?
lector who attempts thereafter to
forcibly collect such taxes by levy?
ing upon the taxpayers' property is
not shielded by the legislation of
the State, but makes the attempt
at his personal peril. The court
holds, furthermore, that a suit
brought against a tax-collector for
seizure of a tax-payer's property
altera due tender of coupons is not
a suitagainst the State but is a suit
against an individual trespasser,
acting without the legal athor
iry of the State.
The court holds that the act of
the General Assembly of Virginia
of January ??Hi, 1582, "to provide for
the more efficient collection of rev
emu- to support. Government, main?
tain the public schools and to pay
interest on the publiedebt,"requit?
ing tax collectors to receive, in (Its
charge ol the taxes, license taxes
and other (Ines, gold, silver, United
States treasury notes, national bank
currency, aud nothing else, aud
thereby forbidding the. receipt of
coupons issued under the act of
March .'>(), 1871. in payment there?
for, although it is a legislative act
of the Government of Virginia, U
not a law of the State of Virginia,
because it impairs the obligation
of its contract and is annulled by
the Constitution of the United
The State passed no such law, for
t cannot, aud what it cannot do in
contemplation of law it has not done.
The Constitution of the United
States and its own contract, both
irrepealable by any act on its part,
are the laws of Virginia, and that,
law made it the duty of the defend

cd in payment of taxes, and ?icoiar

The dissenting opinion has ref?
erence particularly, to the ease of
A?en against the Baltimore anil
Ohio Railroad Company, and the
fundamental ground of the dissent,
as set forth by Justice Bradley, is
' that this proceeding, and all other
proceedings on these coupons,
brought here lor leview, are, vir?
tually, suits against the State ol
Virginia to compel a specific per?
formance by the Stale otheragree?
