He complied with the request, and in the course of bis remarks alluded to the pastor of the church, and the service he was at that tlmepcifonnlug for the colored people, and said tu the children that he hoped they would be as ready as Ihur pastor to help the negroes at all I mca and do what they could to aid a neighbor tnc colored rchocl. Ihcee remarks were so dis tasteful to the audience present that Colonel Mc- Kee was coughed down and not allowed to pro ceed.

Akfociatc Justice Field also delivered the opin ion of the Court in the *xjnirU case of Garland ami Man*, who, taking part in tbe rebellion, n-k u< he rc-admltu-d to practice. Tbo Court held as the sialuic Imposes punishment which may not have been imposed at thu time he offence was committed, it is in It* nature an r. r jiott facto law. Attorneys aie nol officcis of the United Slates; they are officers of courts, and hold their office- during good beba vtpr. The court is rot the rcglsU-r ol edlcs of my power. The applicants obtained a pardon f:em the President, which relieves them from the consequences of their offerees, and makes them citizens In the eves of the law—what they were belore the oficnces were committed. Congress enniixit limit tbo prerogative of mercy; it cannot bo altered liv legislative coustrncUOD. It followed that tbe prayer of the petitioner must be granted, and also tbe prayer of Vr.Marr. Tbo rule which requires attorneys r o take the test oath must be rescinded. Aisoclalo Justice Miller, for himself, the Chicl Justice and Associate Justices Swayne and Dsvts, read a dissenting opinion, maintaining that prac tice in court U a pnvilcgc, and that attorneys arc 'ubj-ct to legislation the same as Judges. The Taw makes no distinction, but requires all civil and military officers to take some oath. -Vtomeys exert amarked influence on the charac :.r of the Government. If all tbe attorneys in the i-cuth baa been fabbtul to toe allegiance they me requited to swear, no should hare been spared tbe horrors of rebellion. Itwa.* not claimed by the majority of tb-* Court tint tbe law works at- ••e ndvrof blood, tbcrclore Ibis U not tttsindcr, nor docs it appear that any was indica ted. Persons who arrayed themselves n hostility to the Government, and gave aid and comfort to the enemy, forieUcd uctr right to appear in court. This was not a ethnical hut a civil proceeding, which affected ifct-ir private rights retrospectively. With regard to the Missouri ease, the questions Involved ves'- rd with the btate. The constitutional restric tion that Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of religion was nol appli cable. Justice Story says the whole power was \ll to the Stale to be exercised according to it* judgment. The Constitution of Missouri ears no v.ch persons as described shall exercise 'their unction* unless they sho w their loyUty. Cases i ere quoted In support of there points.
