that a large number of department
clerks, residents" 6f Northern States and
of the District of Columbia, are credited
on the books of the department to
Southern States. ; Southern Congress
men have always been jestive over
this matter. The South Caroling mem

to South Carolina who are not citizens
of that State shall be removed. Under

Decision that Enables Bondholders

Washington, March 31. An opin

Court to-day in the case of Morris Ban

The litigation arose out of an applica

against it upon bonds issued to the
New Orleans, Jackson & Great North
GnJ!road. Company,., The city set
up as a defence that there was no legis
lative authority for the levy of such a
tax The petitioner, demurred to this
answer, out tne circuit court overruieu
the demurrer and denied the writ,
whereupon the petitioner took this ap
peal. - The court below proceeded on
the principle that the power of taxation
belongs exclusively to the legislative
branch of the government, and that the
Mdiciary cannot, direct a tax to be lev
ied when none is authorized by the Leg
islature. This court holds, in a careful
opinion delivered by Justice Fieldthat
although the power of taxation is a leg

cur an obligation to carry out any pub
lic object is conferred upon a municipal
corporation, the power to levy a tax ior
its payment or the discharge of the ob
ligation accompanies it, and this, too,
without any special mention that such
power is granted. It is always to be
assumed in the absence of clear restric
tive provisions, that when a Legisla
ture grants to a citv the power to con
tractr a debt, it intends that the citv
shall pay it, and that its payment shall
not be left to its caprice or pleasure.
Whenever a power to contract a debt is
ponf erred, it must be held that a corres
ponding power of providing for its pay
ment is also conferred. The latter is
jmplied in the grant of the former, and
euch implication cannot be overcome
i except by express words of limitation.
In the present case the lnaeoteaness or
the city of New Orleans is conclusively
established by the judgments recovered.
Owing the debt the city had the power
to levy a tax for its payment, and it was
clearly its duty to do so. The payment
was not a matter resting on itf pleasure
but a duty to the creditor, and having
neglected that duty, a mandamus
should have been issued to enforce its

one of our colleges, after suffering some
days with neuralgia in the head, which
he himself had tried to cure, sent for
