conducts irresistibly to that and we think we cannot do better than repeat the grounds upon which the decision wa made to It is there shown that the transportation of freight or of the subjects of com

regulate commerce among the several states that the power to prevent embarrassing re strictions by any state the end de sired that the power was given by the same words and in the same clause by which was conferred power to regulate commerce with foreign nations and that it would be absurd to suppose that the transmission of the subjects of trade from the state of the or from the place of

ferred to In that case the defend ants had been fined for selling a barrel of gin in New which they in Boston and brought coast wise and there sold in the same barrel and in the same condition in which it was purchased in but contrary to the law of New Hamp shire in that The conclusion of the opinion of Chief Justice Taney is in these words Upon the the law of Hampshire is in my judgment a al though the gin sold was an import from another and congress has clearly the power to regulate such under the grant of power to regulate commerce among the several the congress has made no regulation on j the the traffic in the article may be lawfully regulated by the state as soon as it is landed in its and a tax imposed upon or a license re or the sale altogether according tu the policy which the state may suppose to be its interest or duty to Referring to the cares of Massachusetts and Rhode the chief after j saying that if the laws of the came in collision with the laws of congress au thorizing the importation of spirits and distilled it would be the duty of the court to declare thus con tinues It been if a state deems the traffic in ardent spirits to be injurious to its and calculated to introduce and pauperism into the it may con stitutionally refuse to permit its importa notwithstanding the laws of con gress and that a state may do this upon the same principles thai it may resistaud prevent the introduction of or pauperism from But it must be remembered that pestilence and pauperism are not subjects of although sometimes among its attendant They are not things to be regulated and trafficked but to be as far as human foresight or human means guard against Cut spirits and distilled liquors are uni versally admitted to be subjects of ownership and and are there fore subjects of and like any other commodity in which a right of property And congress under its general power to regu late commerce with foreign may prescribe what article of merchandise shall be admitted and whatexcluded aud may therefore or as it shall deem the importation of ardent And inasmuch as the laws of congress authorize their no state has a right to prohibit their intro These stale laws act altogether upon the retail or domestic traffic within their respective They act upon the article after it has passed the line of foreign and becomes a port of the general mass of property in the These laws discourage and diminish the price which ardent spirits would otherwise But although the state is bound to receive and permit the sale by the importer of any article of mer chandise which congress authorizes to be it is not bound to furnish a market for nor to abstain from the passage of any law which it may deem necessary or advisable to guard the health or morals of its although such law may discourage importation or dimin ish the profits of the or lessen the revenue of the general And if any state deems tho retail and in ternal traffic in ardent spirits injurious to its citizens and calculated to produce vice or I sec noth ing in the constitution of the United States to prevent it from regulating and restraining the or from prohibit ing it altogether if it thinks
