The Democratic leaders are discuss
ing the propriety of washing their hands
of their past intolerant record, and open
up anew for ihe fall campaign with S.
P. Chase on his platform or their
champion and leader. In order to do
so they will have to make immense pro
gress in the few days that remain be
tween this and the 4th cf July. The
old political scales of the fogy leaders,
which have been rusting for years, will
have to be put to soak immediately in
the most penetrating of oils, or the re
fulgent light and civilization of the nine
teenth century will scarce pierce them
by a single ray by convention day. If
the conlroling few can see the way,
time may bring the rest to the fold be
fore the ides of November.
The Democratic Stale" Convention met

the only just and true doctrine of the Na
By this they simply mean that they

They declare against the reconstruction

the constituted authorities of the Union.
Failing . to destroy the Government cr

dacity to come forth and dictate a policy
to the Nation, and to declare that they,
notwithstanding the crime cf treason ad
ded to their guilty intent, have general
and exclusive rights, and must be per

the doctrine cf State's rights so far as
they could, failing in this they are still

The Protective Tarriff .men have
failed to carry out their policy to the
fullest extent. The Impeachers of the
President have failed to accomplish their
purpose. Are then the Tarriff men and
the Impeachers to be denied rights under
the constitution that they heretofore
enjoyed, simply because they failed in
the execution of a desired policy? If
not,, "then why," these Tennessee
rebels boldly ask, "are we prescribed in.
our State and National rights, -because
we failed in permanently establishing
our policy of State righu as a fixed and
undisputable fact?" 4,0 yes," chimes
in our Democratic friends, "these rebels

guilty of the crime of coercion should'nt
vote, should'nt hold office.". Oh no
thev should'nt. The Congressional
policy won't do. The President con-
dems it. The Democratic party condemns
it. The rebels condemn it. Oh yes, it
is a bad way this Government has of per
mitting coercionists to make laws hold
office and have political rights." Oh,
certainly, it is not right for Congress to
say that arrant rebels should not vote, net

Oar Railroad Prospects.
We have before us the bill "granting
lands to aid in the construction of a rail
road from Brownville, Neb.," "to inter
sect the Union Pacific railroad," as re
ported by the committee June 5;h. -The
report is favorable to the passage of the
bill, which is substantially the ?ame as
that offered by our delegation, and which
we published when first introduced. ' We
have other good evidence to warrant us
in our prophecy of its passage, than the
fact of a favorable report from the com
mittee. 'Few men can lock the ground
over without admitting the benefit to the
whole country of an air line road through
this section, and this fact is making us
friends just where we need them where
capital is looking west for profitable in
vestment. Although we are on the most feasible
and. shortest National route to the
Pacific, yet much, very much, depends
upon our energy in keeping these advan
tages before the public and in doing all
in our power at home to push forward
the work. Everything should be in read
iness, immediately upon the passage of
the grant, to pet part cf the work under
contract, for our own energy will infuse
confidence, as our listlessness will breed
distrust. So far it has been mostly "luck,"
henceforth it must be work !

New Sunday School.
v There has been a Sabbath School or
ganized in School District No. 6, in
Town 5, Range 15, called New Eadon.
It has, a very good library, one semi and
two monthly periodicals, for which thsy
acknowledge much indebtedness to the
good people cf Bro.vnvilje for valuable
The School is under the management
of John G. Skeen and Mr. Araaria Dodd,
two highly esteemed christain gentlemen,
who are well qualified to fill the place
The School, though recently organized,
is becoming quite interesting. We have
an average attendance each Sabbath of
fifty scholars and six teachers, and the
instruction imparted is already having a
good effect upon both young and old ;
and through it they will form more cor
rect habits oa the Lord's day, and have
a greater respjet for all christain insti
tutions. ' ,
We hope our friends in Brownville
will visit us of ten,, and encourage us by
their presence and example. It is our
ever unceasing desire to teach our young
friends to walk in wisdom's ways, :o ev
er adhere to the truth the mighty cor
ner stone of society that when they
reach the years of maturity they will not
say as we fear to many have, "I never
received the benefit of a Sabbath School
never was taught to read, God's word
or obey his commandments." The field
for christain effort is wide and but little
cultivated ; but few are receiving the
proper instructions, and taught to obey
the commandments of Heaven and to feel
the great importance of an ever ready
instant preparation for a sudden calling
from time to eternity before the bar of
infinite justice. May our Summer's la

Bill to Admit tlie SoatUcrn States.
The following is the bill passed by
Congress, cn the 12th, to admit North
Carolina, South .Carolina, Louisiana
Geonria and Florida. The bill was
passed by a vote of 111 yeas to 3 nays
From this It will be seen that the
opponents of' the Congresssonal policy
have, as yet, nothing to rejoice over, and
that Congress, as firm as ever, is deter
mined to "fight it out on this line."
Whereas, the people of North Caro
lina, South Carolina, Lousiada, Georgia
Alabama and Honda have, in pursuance
of the provisions of an act entitled an act

Tax Titles Not Valld.-OpSnlon of

pellant." T A Sherwood,-attorney for
respondent; A. J. Lindenbower for
appellant. The facts of the case are no

OPINING OF THE COURT.
This was on action of ejectment upon
a tax tittle. On the trial-the plaintiff
offered in evidence the collector deed,
executed to him under the provisions of
the statute of 1S64. Laws of 1663 4, p
89, sec. 21-22,) which provided that
the deed "vest in the grantee, his heirs
and assigns, the title to the real estate
therein described," and should be vheld
and received in all courts and places
where the tittie to the real estate thereby
conveyed is involved as conclusive evi
dence that each and every act and thing
required to be done by the provisions of
this act had been complied with, and
the party offering such deed in evidence
shall not be required to produce the
judgment, precept, nor any other, matter
or thing as evidence to sustain such con
veyance and the little thereby acquired ;
provided, however, -that the party con
troverting such deed and the tittle there
by conveyed may; for the purpose of in
validating the same, show either
cne of the following acts only : First,
that the land conveyed by such
deed was not subject to taxation at the
time of the assessment thereof, under
which assessment such sale was made.
Second, that the taxes due therecn had
been paid according to law before the
sale. Third, that such land had been
duly redeemed according to law before
the execution of such deed. The deed
was read in evidence, and the plaintiff
rested his case thereon.
For the purpose of invalidating this
deed the defendant offered, and the court
refused to admit, evidence tending to
,1. That the land had not been duly
assessed for the year 1563 at the time
and in the manner required by law.
2. That the land was not assessed in
the name of the real owner or any for
mer, or any tenant or occupant cf said
3. That ail the land in the county had
not been assessed,.but much of it omitted
from the assessment of that year.
4. That the tax .book was not made
out nor delivered to the Collector,, in
the manner nor at the time prescribed
5. That tie Collector did not proceed
with the collection of such tax bpok, nor
give notice of the time and place,, where
he woujd receive the taxes assessed for
said year, as acquired by law.
6. That the delinquent list was not
made out and returned by the Collector
at the time and in ths raac&er prescribed
by law. .
7. . Tha,t- the; Collector-, did not. give,
nor was the judgment renderd, upon
proper notice of his application for judg
ment against said land for the taxes and
cpsts due -thereon. - ',- -
Q. That no precept of the sale of said
land had been issued by the clerks.
9. That the land was not sold at the
Court house door, nor 'into the smallest
subdivisions into which it could be divided,
but was sold in gross...:: "
- All this evidence waa excluded for
the reason that the tax. deed was held to
be conclusive evidence that everthing
had been done which the law required
except the three things above specified
by way of exception in the act itself. An
instruction was given for the plaintiff to
the same effect. Instrctibns of a contrary
tenor was refused for the' defendant,
and among the rest one of this effect:
That the act aforesaid, as far as it at
tempts to make the tax deed conclusive
evidence as therein recited, , operated to
deprive the citizen of his property with
out due process 'of law, and to take pri
vate property for public use without just
There can be co .doubt that the State
has a sovereign power of taxation over
all the State, which i3 not exempted
from State taxation by the law of the
United States; and it has power to en
force .-the collection of taxes assessed
and levied according to law by a sale of
the propeity. Property sold for taxes
in tha valid exercise of this power can
not be said to be taken from the owner
without the process of law. But the Leg
islature, in the exercise of this powef.
cannot enact a law which shall have '.-'e
effect simply to take the property of A-.
and give it to B. There are certain es
sential requisites of the power which are
indispensable, in order to divest the title
of the owner and transfer it to another.
In minor matters regarding the mode
and manner of exercising . the power,
there is no doubt that the Legislature
may alter rules of evidece, or declare
what effect certain facts, or documents,
shall have, when produced in evidence,
but in the nature of things there must be
a limit to this right. There is abundant
authority to the effect that the Legisla
ture may make the deed of a public off
icer : prima facie evidence of title, but
they cannot make H conclusireevider.ee as
to matters which are vitally essential to
any valid exercise whatever of the taxing
In Allen vs. Armstrong (16 Iowa,
50S), Dillon J. lays down the rule, in
terms to which we see no sound obiect-
ion, thus: "We state the principle which
must be legally and logically true, in
this wise : If any given step or matter
in the exercise of the power to tax (as
for example the fact of a levy by the
proper authority) is so indispensable that
without its performance no tax can be
raised, then that 6tep or matter,-what
ever it may be, cannot be dispensed with,
and with respect to that the owner can
not be 'concluded from showing the truth
by a mere legislative declaration to that
Applying this rule, we are of ihe
mm . . a
opinion that evidenoe was admissible
for the purpose of showing, that the land
had not been assessed for the vear
1S63 in the name of any tenant or oc
cupant of said land. It is the owner
who is taxed, and not the land. He is
taxed in re-pectof his title or ownership
in the land, and taxation is to be in pro
portion to the value of the properly. It
is the owner who is to pay the
tax, and it is his title or interest in the
land which is to ba transferred by a sale,
if any title can pass. A deed convey
ing the title under proceedings against .a
person had no title or interest whatever
in the land, and was in no manner the
representative of the owner, if any title
could pass, would have the effect to take
the property of one man, without da
process of law against him, and gire v
L .k. a - D ( .
article of this same act (7--29) will
show that the act itself recognizes the
necessity that the assessment and other
proceedings under the law shall be di
rected against the owner of the property.
The land is in. all cases to be assessed
to the person appearing to the owner
at the time of the assessment," (section
10); and when "the name of the owner
or claimant cannot be ascertained, such
land shall be taxed by the numbers, and
in the name of the original owner," and
shall "be sold and conveyed, by their
numbers and in the name of the original
owner, without reference to the present
owners or claimants." section 29.) It
is unnecessary for us to say further here
what might be the effect of this clause,
in any case I but we may go so far as to
declare now that on assessment in the
name of a person who neither was, not
ever had been, the owner of the property,
whold be an utterly void assessment,
(Whitner vs. Thomas, 23 N. Y., 2S1.
The assessors have no jurisdiction to
assess property otherwise then as the
staute prescribes, and a void assessment
which is equivalent to no assessment at
all against the'owner cannot be -made
the foundation of a sale and conveyance
of his land, even bylegislaliue enactment.
A valid assessment is an essential pre
requisite to the lawful exercise of the
power of taxation. It is a necessary
condition of an efiectual transfer -of the
We are of the opinion further, that
evidence was admissible to show that
the judgment against this land had been
rendered, without notice to the owner
thereof. The statute requires such no
tice. Without notice lo the owner, or
unless he were brought before the court
in some manner, there could be no law
ful jurisdiction over him, and a judgment
so rendered would not be per legem ierrae.
With regard to the other matters cf
evidence above enumerated, we are in
clined to think they were not essential
prerequisites to the lawful exercise of
the taxing power in the State, and that
the act cannot be declared unconstitution
al for the reason that it makes the deed
conclusive evidence that all those things
had been rightly done. They, were mat
ters cf form which might bs taken against
him by default.-
: It is aTuls that an act cf the Legisla
ture will not be declared unconstitutional
and void unless the natter be clear aod
certain beyond. reasonable doubt. The
clause which provides that the tax dcc,d
"shall vest in the grantee, his heirs and
assigns, the title to the real estate there,
in described,'- may - be - understood as
declaring what shall be the effect cf the
instrument. iwhen it has any effect at all
Such provisions are to be constructed
A statute which made the deed "con
elusive evidepce that the sale teas regular
according to the provisions of this act,"
and declared that it should vest an abso
lute fee simple, "has been confirmed in
its operation to the sale, only. (Scott v.
Society, 1 Doug. (Mich.), 121 ; Dough
ty vs. Hope, 3Denio, 595; Beekmenvs.
Bingham, 1 SeW., 366; Blackw. Tax
Tit., S3.) But this act (sec. 22), makes
the deed conclusive evidence "that each
and every act and thing required, to be
done by the provisions, of this act had
been complied with." . It precludes any
evidence whatever for the purpose of
invalidating the deed, except in respect
of the three matters, mentioned and ex
cepted.. ; ,
These three other things are only
essential conditions of a valid and lawful
exercise of the power of taxation,
We think it may be. safely said, that a
valid asessment of the property to the
true owner, and notice of the judgment
to be rendered against him are indispen
sable, in order that the transfer of his
title to another may be effectual per legem
ierrae. In these respects' and so far,
we hold the act to be unconstitutional.

A mother who displays the incapacity that she
owns to, in the government of her children, better
employ some of her time informing herself by
reading some good book on the subjeet ef family
