Before we have any positive proof of another bus nud cult do in n similar kind of work. Let us take the work of the auditor of Allen county for the year 1855, in the one item of duty that of making calculating and finishing his duplicate of taxable property for that year and we a Hill find so surely we run the question to a solution that the work is greater that is there u More of count More of hard dior an More intricacy in it than in the Index prepared by Colerick.

For this work the same Board of commissioners Al Lowed the auditor s 5-15, n fair sum for three months work and one that satisfies him but for work not so Grent nor so difficult the recorder got or limes is much is the auditor.

It is lamentable that our treasure is so depleted but it is just this kind of Over reaching on the part of the officers and pets of and what is worse in order to carry out the the county that has brought that Treasury to disgraceful purpose of the new act they induced bankruptcy and so Long As the county Board the legislature to declare it a Case of emergency i i be w Recreant to their duty an and have the act take effect from and after its Sai of the people s Money and paid Fais Rye to wit from so that they the re d be so prod mercenaries and after the 14th feb.

And further we regard he repeal of the Missouri Compromise an in fraction of the plighted Faith of the nation the same should be restored and if efforts to that end fail Congress should refuse under All circumstances to admit any state into the Union operating slavery made free by the Compromise. Therefore we approve of the Call for a people s convention to be held on the first Day of May next and earnestly Call upon the american party throughout the state to Send a full Dele a Tion to that convention.

A vital of the Atlantic. New York april 3d. The Atlantic has arrived at this port bringing Liverpool dates to March 19th. Peace is considered As virtually concluded and the arrival of Prussia s plenipotentiary at Paris was alone wanted to sign the protocol. A son is born to the emperor and Empress of France. The British parliment was not in session owing to the easter recess. Nothing had transpired respecting american affairs. No news of the Pacific. Liverpool Dull and rather of the a talk. Kaka Ifon judge per Kun. Dauphin wis brought before me at Chambers in Indianapolis on last Friday afternoon tic 2ttli a March in obedience to a writ of Hareas Corpus. Convictions under the liquor act of 1850 were re Turr d As the cause of his detention in prison. A motion was made for his discharge on the ground that said liquor act was unconstitutional and convictions under its nullifies. The motion was resisted on the ground that the supreme court were equally divided upon the constitutionality of the act and hence the court of com Mon pleas had jurisdiction to decide the question for itself. The Case was argued by or. Baird of Lafay Ette for and by judge Morrison of this City against the Validity of the convictions. On the close of the argument i stated that if it would meet the approbation of counsel i would take Lime to consider of the judgment to be rendered and transmit it when made to Lafayette. Coun Sel acquiesced. I Felt that due Courtesy to the judge of the common pleas who had imprisoned the Petitioner and to the Noble and Learned counsel who had made arguments As Well As duly in the impartial administration of Justice required that i should divest myself of All pre opinion and carefully con Sider the whole Case. It was also my intention to present at length the reasons for the conclusions at which i might arrive but i find myself compelled to abandon hat intention As the continued critical state of health of a member of my family docs not per Mit the use of time to carry it into effect. I must limit myself therefore to a very Hasty statement of conclusions without accompanying reasons the liquor act of Indiana May be void in whole or in part. 1st. For want of Power in the legislature to enact a prohibitory Law. So. Because its sections arc not embraced by its title. 3d. Because they Are special and 4th. Because they assign cruel and unusual punishments. On the first of these Points the supreme court have equally divided. The others the court have not considered and the question upon them entirely open and not p re judged. Judge Stewart in his opinion says it is proper to add what was announced in the Onset that the details of the Law Are nut be fore us and this opinion is not to be regarded As covering the search and seizure clause. It is confined wholly to the question before Power of the legislature to restrain the Sale and now i hold the Law void not Only on the question of Power but for other of the reasons mentioned at least the port of it on which these convictions rest and also because so great n portion of it has been held void by a rim Dorily of the supreme court As in effect to annihilate the entire act. Hence i hold the common pleas court is without jurisdiction to punish for violations of the act and its judgments inflicting such punishments entirely void. As u consequence i feel it my duty however reluctantly to order a discharge from imprisonment under such judge ments. Such will be my course till the supreme the amount of urn allowance would Tret the in Cir seals easier qualities Bill Uota largest pay from the county Treasury and if the Oil set about thorough investigation and then tons were not changed bus inc or work bad not been then done Whol a there was n i throwing themselves Between the people and Chance under in apparent construction of the i 8uc ruinous attempts it overreaching have re new statute to put a few jays More on it the Furci All called to their Aid Ork and then charge the u Hole up to the interposition a c met of Law As to the Legnoli of having been done under the net claw and take claim when and How the labor was any accordingly hut quite contrary to the spirit performed.
