This great case, involving many points of
constitutional law which were awaiting aa
authoritative announcement from the Su
preme Court of the United States, has just
been decided by that tribunal. It is unques
tionably one of the moat important decisions
ever made in thia country. We have not
room for the opinion of the Court, which is
acknowledged to be one of the ablest and
most exhaustive and conclusive that ever em
anated from the Supreme bench. The most
important point was that of the jurisdiction
of the Court. The Supreme Court has juris
diction of suits brought by a State of the
Union against auy other Stats or eithtens of
any ether State. . This suit was instituted by
the State of Texaa while under the control of
the State government established therein in
pursuance of President Johnson's reeonstrue
tion policy. That government was, by the
act of March tin- "ml, 187, pronounced "il
legal." And Texas was, by a subsequent
act of July the 10th, 1807, declared tn be one
of those states which "had not legal govern
incuts."' The suit was instituted in 1867 as
uu original suit in the United-States Supreme
Court, and the decision is uot only that the
Court had jurisdiction, but that, notwith
standing all the acts of Congress, Texas was
at that time actually and legally a State, and
odc of the States of the Union.
We cannot, with our limited space, enter
into the details pf the case or of the points
decided. It decided, among other things,
that Texas has never ceased to be1 a State of
theUuion; that the acts of secession were
void, and that no State has at any time taken
itself out of the Uuion. The authority of
the Federal Government was suspended
while the State was in rebellion, but the
State did not lose its status as one of the
States of the Union, nor its citizens as citi
zens of the United States. The establish
ment of the provisional governments organ
ized by Presidents Liucoln and Johnson is
justified as a necessity for the restoratiogWef
law and order aud legitimate Stale govmB
ments in the lately rebellions States. Any
opinion upon the constitutionality of the va
rious reconstruction acts of Congress is avoid-
v r f . '
to the Revenue. Tbe suhjeaa of thtmui
one in which all the people are so rnnch 'fiV
terested that we know (psOOr leaders WTO
approve of what we have me. The law la
relation to the collection of the taxes, which
will be found ou our first pace, should be resd
with care by all. especially that part of it re
lating to the assessment efffedits for taxa
tion. Before lifting their old notes and ac
counts it will be necessary for creditors to
determine upon what terms they are willing
to compromise with their debtors.

Mr. Editot : The continuance of the

that the supplies hitherto derived from

perhaps correctly, that the amount of su

Florida, will considerably exceed the
amount made for the past K w years ; vet.

Two or three months ago we had the oc
casion to acknowledge the ieceipt of a
sample of sugar made from sorghum, by a
company in Louisville, Ky., which was
equal in quality to the best New Orleans
raw sugar. It was stated that a product
hi 900 to 1,200 pou mis of sngar to the
acre of sorghum cane was the ordinary
yield in Kentucky ; and if this be true, it
is quite et i dent the suga&problcm is solv
ed at once.
Sorghum can be raised without any dif
ficulty in any part of the United States
south of Central Illinois, but attains a
more perfect development in the cotton
Stati s. Maturing earlier than sugarcane
the grinding season is sufficiently long iu
most of these States to admit of working
up the crop as leisurely as the. cane of
Louisiana, and ti e product is sufficiently
remunerative to justify the most perfect
apparatus for that purpose.
Alkthe obstacles to as perfect a crys
talisation of the syrup of sorghum aa that
of tbe sirup of sugar cane are removed by
tbe simple expedient of defecating the
juice before it is boiled. Tin- sugar then
granulates beautifully, and both sugar and
sirup are aas free from the peculiar flavor
ot the sorghum aa could be desired.
