And this claim waa aivtainc 1 in the court la low, and the bill wan dinuuascd. The iuestion before iw non appeal are lliene : 1. Can a contract for the payment of Confed erate noten, made during the late rebellion be tween pariii-s residiug within the so-called Con federate Stat.ii, be enforced at all iu the courts of I the United Statea? i 5. Can evidence lie received to urove thai a promise expressed to be for the payment of any .1 1 .1,11 .'.1 I . .. I ....!... . ,,uier than lawiui miliars oi ...e ui..u.-. .m.i I A. I Kkm the evidence "if the record eaianiisu the fact that the mile for ten thousand dollars waa to be p ild, by agreement of the parties, in CiM.fcdcrnle notes? The limt question ia by no means fr.u from dificulty. It cannot la questioned that the (sMiwnlerate notes were issiltil iu furtherance of an unlawful attempt to overthrow the government of the Uni ted States bv insurrectionary force. Nor is it a ,1... da fnl i.rmeinle of law that no contract made in aid of such an attempt can he enforced through the courts of the country whose govern ment i thus assailed. But was the contract of the parties to thi suit I a contract oi inai cnirneaer i vat. .. ' dtweribed as a contract in aid of the rebellion? In examining this question the stale of that ) part (d" the country in which it was made must j be considered. I It familiar history lhat earlv in INnl the i authorities of seven St-ile. supsrt.-l, n-i wan al 'leg.nl, by pomilar majorities, comhin.il for the loverthniw of the National Union, nnd for the I e-stablislim. nt within its boundaries of a separate j an I independent confederation. A goven.nii-nt org initiation represciitinq: tlie.se State, was es I tablh.he.1 at MtMttgotnenr, in Alabama, first ,jm dcr a provisional ixjii-litntion, and afterwards umler a eonstit ilion interaled to be permanent. In the course of a few months Hair other State" acceded to this lonfederation, anil the sent ol llie central authority was traiislcrred to Richmond, in Virginia. It was bv thcccnlrl! authority lin y organized, and under it direction, thai the civil war was carried on upon a vaslt scale again.! the govern ment of the in he I StuU-n for more than four vears. Its p iwef 'w.is rccogui.cd as Snpn-uie in iiearlv the whole of the territory of the States confederated. It wan the actual' gyyernnu nt of alt til ? insurgent Slates, ex eept tluwe portions of tlwfn proteettsl from Tls control by the presence of the armed forces of the national government. What w-u. lite prccifte i harai ti r of this aov i.rnnieut iii r rmleiii.il .1 ion of law? It is ilifli- cull to define il will. a itiu-sn. Anv ie diition that may Iw given jnay not unpuj autly Uefouud to require limitation ;.ndqii:ilili-alion. But the gi-neral prim-tides of law relating loilrfiirtu gov erntnent, will, we think, conduct ns to a conclu rion nc'ciirate'. There .-vfi- several degrees of what is Called farln government. Such a government, in u niguen iirpir, sumci. a high rharacter very closely rcsymbllng thai of a lawful gorernnM-nt. This in whet, th usurping govenunent exjielslhe regular author ities run their customary seats and function, and estahtbihe itavlfn tlieir place, and an TS oomes the actual govcn.nu-nt of a eonnlry. The distinguishing eharaeteristica of sui'h a government is lhatalherents to ll in war against the government nV jure do not incur the penal ties of treason, and, under certain limitations, obligalbms assumed by it in behalf of the coun try iw otherwise, will, in general, he rusjMjcied by tlie government dr jnn wl.cn restored. Example of Ibis' description of governments t- fariu nre found 'In I-jiitlLh history. The Sta tute 11 Henry, Statute atj I .-.ree i n-lii-Tcs from ocnalties for treason all pera- ms who, in defence of llie King for the time being, make war agniimt those who endeavor to subvert his .authority by force of .anus, though warranted in so doing by the lawful monarch, (4 HI. Com, 77.) . Hut thin is where tne usurper onuiuis aiiuai pssi-ion of the royal authority of the kingdom, not when lie has micceeded only in establishing his power over particular he.ilit.es. Ileing in such pnasessior, allegiance i doe to him as a king de'icto. i.i Another example may he found in the gov ernment of F.ngland under the commonwealth, first bv Parlianvnl, and afterwards by Cromwell u protector. It waa no, in the cooleropbukKl f law, a government but was a govern ment dtjartv iu Hie hiimI abaoluto aense. It made laws, treaties and conquest", which rvmnin. el the laws, tn-aties and i-nmineate of Kngland af er the restoration. The lietter opinfoo is that acts done in obeli enc to this government could not Is- instlv recard.-d as 1reaw.nal.le, though in hostiluv lo ibe King uV jurt. Siuh art were I made in thai .smi.lrv, ev hleoee would he admit-pr-itiiietl from criminal prosecution by ihf spir- j ted to prove what kind of dollars were intended, it if not the letter of the statnte of Henry the i and if it should turn out that foreign dollar Seventh. It was held otherwise by the jmlge J were meant, to jwove their .tpiivalcttl Vahe in bv whom Sir Henry ane w as tr eu lor iPeawm .a Hi. I.. Trial I I'll in lie- vear following the restoration.

It is to be observed that tin- right and obligation of a belligerent were unii-eded to it iu its military rharacter very soon after the w ar la- from motive of huinaliily and cx.-dn'iu' by the United States. The whole territory col -trolled by it was then after held to bo the enc mv's territory, and the inhabitant- of ijmi terri tory were held, in most rp-.vts. for enemies. ro the extent, then, of actual snpremacy, how ever unlawfully gained, in all matter- of govern ment within il military line, the "evi r nf the insurgent government canrad la- queslioned.
