These considerations arc conclusive of the ass-ini')- non that the opinion referred to is authority whh the Court. W hile wc deny to this decision of the Supreme Court the office of such anthorily, wo acknowledge the potency of that tribunal as an instructor of judgment; and if it had milted its great wisdom in the pronunciation of the opinion invalidating the rule in contro versy, wc should feel disputed to bow roil. But it comes to ns advisory, and we must receive U upon the conditions upon which it Is sent. These conditions, In the way of advice, are that a majority oi one ol the Court counsels con demnation of the rule, while a minority of one less than a majority counsels its support, leaving this Court to form Us own opinion without any substantial aid from the decision. If wo wore to adopt the conclusion of tho majority, it wou’d bo at the expense of condemning a law of Congress in dcllsncc of the rule of judgment already referred to, and substantially upon the' opinion of a single Justice of the Supreme Court, for judgment, after all Is weighed in tho balance, is reduced to the opinion of one Justice—a result, however binding, not very imnessive of wisdom, when applied to 'ho condemnation of a law. This controversy of ju dicial opinion, largely attributable to political excitement, demonstrates to our judgment that the question in controversy la so involved wwh political considerations as to render it eminently proper that it should be rclcrred back to the polit ical power of the nation, and that the law-making power which created it be consulted in Its modifi cation or repeal.

Congress bad either to move forward or he thiost Irrevoca bly backward. Mr. ALLISON spoke in favor of the bill, either with or without modification. Mr. BLAINE would vote forjthe bill whether amended or not. but hoped It would be amended to the effect that when the Constitutional Amend ment shall be ratified, acd Any one of the South ern States bad assented to it, and provided for im partial euffraee, tbar that State snail be declared entitled to representation In Congress, and its Representatives and Senators admitted to scats on taking the oath prescribed by law, Mr. G ARFIEIJ) said: My remarks in tho House on Friday appear to have made an Impression that I declared myself in favor of showing no mercy to the Southern people; that I had hitherto been In favor of a magnanimous course, and that hereafter the door of mercy should be shut again? t them. However deeply they have wronged the Republic, 1 would not have anyone suppose I favors fierce or revengeful course. What Isold on that point was wholly In reference to the Con etttnlionsl Amendment, which all the rebel States, except Tennessee, have* now rejected, as a basis ol restoration. I said, and I'eay again, I myself am morally boned, and 1 believe the Thirty-ninth Congress was morally bound, to re ceive them if they adopted It and pnt themselves on the same ground that Tennessee did. Many members know X have been opposed to taking fmilicr decisive action until ever; rebel had a mil opportunity to act on the amendment Now that they have ail rejected it, and considering their ac tion as final, as Isaid on Friday, that oficr, as a basis of restoration, is forever closed so tar as my vote Is concerned. Tho time has come when wc most protect loyal men of the South. The time has come when Irnlt leas magnanimity to rebels is cruelty lo oar Mends. No oiher victorious nation has over so neglected its supporters. For a quarter of a cen tury the British Government gave special protec tion to iho Tories ol the American Revolution, Having them 115,000.000 out of the rojaktruasary. Wbatloyai man of any Slate, except TVnnesiee, has been honored or defended by the Federal Government ? It Is a notorious fact that it ia both safe and honorable in the South to have been a rebel, while It ia both dangerous and d'acracciul lor a Southerner lo bare been loyal to the Union. They are every day proscribed as unavenged victims of rebel malig nity.

The lobby strength seems temp more numerous and powerful to-day than at any previous time dunrg the session, and wbat Is more strange and remarkable, very few of the number are here to represent private schemes or Interests. Most all of them are looking out for the public good, as they understand It. A delegation from the Com mon Council of Chicago, consisting of Messrs. Wicker, Holden and Lawson, arrived here this morning, to look after the amendments lo the City Charter. These gentlemen, with (several other clUacna of yonr city, had a con ference with the Cook County delegation this sUcmoon.fand certain matters concerning the Charter Amendments. Health Bill, Ac., were agreed upon by common consent. The Health Bill will remain Ibo same as It was repotted, except the control of the financial portion of It will be In the Common Conucll. This, 1 think, Is the only change of anycooscquouce. mu. to rnoviux additional school facilities ron cuica'io. The Common Connell Committeo here and the Cook County delegation have alsofagrecd upon a bill to give power to the Common Council lo Issue twenty years’ bonds for the sum of five hundred thousand dollars for the pur pose of buying lands and bnlldlog fCbool houses Id Chicago, this step being deemed absolutely necessary, by rca son ot tbe straitened school accomraod.illons in thatctly. It is represented that these accommo dations at this time aie scarcely sufficient for one half Ibo number of scholars who are desirous of gaining admission. Tae movement wilt uudonbt vdly prove a popular one.

They hope to have It ready for tntrodnctlun by Thursday, slier which U will have to take Its chances as a popular measure. There arc »o many varied Ititerrsls at work In endeavoring to give certain direction to Its provision*, that it has been vny difficult to reconcile them all ro aa lo secure lor R Uir milled support of the friends of Internal miiirnvrmente. It Is to bo honed (hit tbe new hill is oprn lo very taw or none of the objections urged against the first bill reported. riIICAUO park mu. Ibe friends of tbe South Chicago, Hyde Park and lake Park Uill, have bad an eminent Chicago lawyer at work on that bill to-day in per* fsctlng Ua detail*. Qnlte a comber of change* bare been made In III* respect, but tbe vital features of the MU remain. a* there aeemed no chance for improvement. Ihere seems now to be no opposition to Ibis bill, except from one roorce, ana that Is by parties rep resenting tbe Drexels, of Philadelphia, who are tbe owner* of a large tract of lacd in toe immedi ate vicinity of tbe contemplated improvement. It Is understood that these parties trill withdraw tbclr opposition If the park Is permitted to adjoin ibclr lands, bat not Include them. TUX BKNATB. Tittle or no business of public importance was transacted In tbe Senate this forenoon, and thai body was not in session in the afternoon. to* norex could hardly muster a quorum during the whole day, and it adjourned at an early hour In the after* coon.

Which lo cality will eventually capture the priae Is vet a mystery that doubtless a lew days will settle. 1 understand that the Champaign party will tack the Chicago Polytechnic School as a rider to their elephant and they think In this way they have tie thing In their own hand*. It Is a strong card. THE STATE HOUSE QUESTION. The question of building a new State House will come up In the Committee of tbe Whole, on Thursday afternoon. An amendment will be offered to Ihe bill reported by the committee, to locate the State House at Decatur. 1 don't think the proposition win show much strength. As 1 have before said, 1 think Springfield ought to have Ihe prize, bnt It ahould put a good deal more of their money In iU 1 might add that they think tbey have ottered all the money they can spire.
