D Inn ps. MkuUt.?In this and three hundred and six other raaee tbe question was raised whether the plain tiffs, who had obtained injunctions *nd commenced s?. lions sgainst the Board of Rxcise, should be allowed to discontinue without paying the costs. The Court ren dered an elaborate opinion, holding that the granting of costs lay is its discretion In equity cases, and allowing coets ia the eases oommenoed before Judge Cardoso's di cieion, which was advsrs" to the law, and disallowing them in all suhoeoaent actions The following are the e.ioHing eentenoes or the uptetwft, showing that the Board jMI tsunt m$rt unwarrantedattempting to enfpre U>e { law after a court of competent jurisdiction bed pro nounced it I'nconstitutloual Alter tbe decision of Judge Cardozo It Is well known that fionm of the autboritlea continued to enforce th? Excise law until the derision of Recorder Hackelt, which was in banuouy with that of Judge Cardoso. The par ties threatened with tho adminutlration of the law, and who nlled upon its unconstitutionality, commenced ac lions in this court for protection. They were entitled to it, and it l?came the duty of the defendants to cooso tho enforcement of that law until the decision referred to was reversed by this Court, and if affirmed, until re versed by a court of last resort. Obedience to the law is an obligation on the part of a public otllcer, and the decision of a court of competent jurisdiction should be regardod us final until reversed upon the nirht of such officer to en force a penal statute. If, however, that view of the de fendants' conduct be exceptionable, it is not reasonably to be gainsayed that the plaintiff^ in the actions com menced arter Judge Cardoso's decision, baring relied upon the law aa declared thereby, should not be com pelled to pay the costs of litigation rendered necessary by the attempt of the defendant* to apply a law decided to be valid. The latter brought that litigation upon thomselvog and must take its consequence? For these reasons In all cases brought subsequent to the decision of Judge Cardozo no cos's will l>e allowed to the de fendants. In eases brought before that decision costs are allowed.

Tho only case of particular interest disposed of tn this court yesterday was an Indictment against Alfred Reither for obtaining the sum of $800 from Thomas M. Taylor by falsely representing himself to bo a member of the detectivo foroc. Tho statement of the complain ant?who has boon an officer in the navy for tho lost thirty years?was published in tbe IIkkald at the time of the arrest of the prisoner, which was made on the 12th ol December, it appeared from the testimony of Mr. Taylor that he flr.-l met tho prisoner at Madi?on square in August, who cbargi d htm with knocking against him, and followed him to tho Everett House, tnukln/ lndeinnt assertions at the sitme lime exhibiting a shield and representing htmseii oi being a member of tho metropolitan police force, ihe prisoner Fad he must brim: him (Mr. Taylor) before Captain Young, and succeeded in so operating up.'n his fears that he gave him $30. Tho prisoner called upon him subsequently at various times, and on the 12th of Sep tember held a pair of pistols to his bead, at which time Mr. Taylor, being very much alarmed, gave him $660. On the 10th of December the prisoner made a I urther demand tor $350, which Mr. Taylor agreed to give him at a specified time and place. Meanwhile he communi cated with Capiain Young, who, with two detectives, artangod to arrest Reither, which was made iu Eighteenth street on tbe evening or tbe 12th of Decem ber. Mb Taylor bed paid Reither tbe $360 previous to giving the detective* tbe signal to arrest him. Only $260 weie recovered, however, the other hundred hav ing been blown away, tbe night (in tbe language of the detective) being "quite windy." Mr. Bedford made a brief and eioqeent appeal to Ihe Jury, and in a few moments tbey rendered a verdict of guilty with a recommendation to mercy. The City Judge, in passing sentence, observed that he would have to disregard the suggestion of tbe Jury, and, iu view of the infamous assertions that w:>re made a.ainst Mr. Taylor, he only regretted that tho law would not permit him to punish the prisoner by imprisoning him for llle in the Slate Prison. He was sent to the Penitentiary for two years (tbe offence only a mis demeanor) and ordered to pay a fine of $10,000. BROOKLYN LAW COURTS. Culled Stales Dint r let and Circuit Court*.

The adjourned esse of Catharine McAdams against an officer of Ihe fecond precinct for maltreatment was continued and dismissed The complainant, who ac cused tho proprietors of Powers' Hotel o( having refused to let her remain therein over night some time ago (after, as they allege, she had conducted herself In a disorderly manner), and of having handed her over to the accused officer, was brought before one of the police justices the morning after the niiht of her spprehension and dis< barged, he being of the opinion that she was not of as sound mind as moat women are geueraliy supposed to be. AH AWtAL CA?r. John R Hargan. of No. 343 East Forty second street, complained that officer Richard Moore, of the Twenty ninth precinct, assaulted hira one night la?t week in a manner that was not in his opinion conducive to h(? physical welfare. The facts were, as stated by the officer and witnesses, as follows ? Ons night Hargan was lound Iti'king a.ter Excise hours at tbe door of the liquor store ? i.rner of Thirty-second street and Sixth avenue, which Is kepi by a Mr. McGlna When aocoetsd by the officer, he said that he wanted to get some property Mr. McUmn had, which property belonged to bim.

UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT. Opinion* of the Preaeut Term?Prohibition*? When and for What Purpose they will leMue?They vrlll not Iaauo after! the Discon tinuance of a Suit?Half Pilotnjfe I.invn. Tke I'niUd Stat'* vt. Ojden Huffman, District Judge of United Slate for the Northern Dittriet of ra.'i fnrnia ??TUe Court for the Northern District of California, of which the respondent is Judge, proceeded as a court of ad miralty and maritime Jurisdiction, upon a libel there flled upon a claim of one Reddish, administrator, against the steamship Pacific, to enforce a claim for hair pilot age, under the act of the Legislature or the State of California, passed May 20, 1861, which provides that "all vessels, their tackle, apparel and furniture, and the masters and owners thereof, shall be lolntly and sever ally liable for pilotape fee--, to be recovered in any court of competent Jurisdiction," and that ?when a vessel Is spoken and the tcrvlces or a pilot declined ono half of the j?re scrlhed rate* shall be paid." The respondent in the enso excepted to llie bill, no lb ? ground that It did not set forth a case of which the court a* a Court of Admi ralty had jurisdiction. Tho exception was overruled, and the cause procoeiled; and, although there were s?v er?l c-.u???!< of the tame character pending against the same o-vnorv?the Californa Steam Navigation Compa ny? nou" of them involved u sum sufficient to authorize mi app al. Motion was therefore ramie bof>ro this Court for a writ of prohibitive, commanding tbe District Judge to dosinl from further prooeodlnus; and ihe success of the motion dej-cuds upon the determination of the ques tion whethar or not the California stat'te creaes a con tract, and If ho, whether it is a maritime contract. If it should l>c held that the statute create* a maritime con tract then It is of course conceded by the respondents that the writ will not issue. The return to the rule to show cause in the case states that after service thereof the libollant camo into court and moved fftr discontinuance of the suit upon his pay ment of costs, and Ihnt after hearing, all the costs of both parties boing paid, an order dismissing tho suit was mnde. This return brings up the further question whether the writ will Issue, notwithstanding the discon tinuance. liv the Court?Mr. Justice Miller delivering the opinion.?At tho la-i term of this court the relator made application for a writ of prohibition to tho Judae of the District Court for tbe Northern District of California, to prevent that court from preceding further in a certain cause of admiralty. This Court, without looking Into the question of the alleged waut of jurisdiction, gran'ed a rule on the judje of that court, to show cause why the writ should not be issued; and an order accompanied the rule.Vhal he should proceed no further in the case until the decision of this court in the premises. Tho re turn of Judge Hoffman to the rale in now before us. The. substance of it is, that a.ter the rulo had b -eu served upon him, tbe libellunt in theudmiraltv suit camo into court and moved for permission to pay all the costs that had accrued, and to dismiss his suit. After hear lnp argument the Court granted the motion, aud the libcllant having paid all the costs of both parties, nn order was made dismissing tho sulu Tho relator ntw n.-ks that the writ of prohibition may issue notwith standing tho roturn, and this presents the ques which we are to decide. The writ ol prohibition, as its name imports, is one which commands tho person to whom it is directed not to do something which, by the suggestion or tho relator, tho Court is informed he Is about to do. If the thing be already done, it is manifest tho writ of prohibition cannot undo It; ror that would require an affirmative act, aud the only ellcct of nwrt of prohibition is to suspend all acttou. and to prev. nt any further proceeding in Ihe prohibited direction. In the en;*) bofore us the writ, from its very nature, could do no more than forbid the judge of the District Court from proceed.n? any rurther in the cose in admiralty Tho return shows that such an order is unnecessary, and will be wholly useless; ror cause is not now (tend ing before that court, and there is no reason" to suppose that it will be in any manoer revived or brought up again for action. The facta shown by the return negatlve'sucb a presumption. Counsel has argued very ingeniously that the cava should be con sidered as remaining in the.court below. in the mine position as it w?s when the rule issued I rem this court - but we cannot so regard it. By the actioo of tho lihel lant and the consent of the court, th- case It oat of court, and the relator is no longer harrawed by an attempt to exercise over htm a Jurisdiction which he claims to he unwarranted if the return show* no more, it shows that the District Judge has no lb onliou of proceeding fur her in that case. No*, ought the writ to is?uo to him under such elroimsLan'en? It would seem to t>e an ollensive and useless exercise of authority for tbo court to order It. The suggestion that there ?r? or may ho other cases against tbe relator of tho same character can have no legal force In this case. If they are now pend ing, and the relator will tuitisi'y the Court tli?t thev are proper cases for the exerciee of the Court's authority, it would probably Issue writs inst nd of a nlc, but a writ in this rase could wot restrain the Judge in the ether ca?es by its oan lorce, and could affect Ins action <nly so | far as he might respect the principle on which the Court I acted in this esse. We aro not prepared to adopt the rule that we will issue a *rit In u case whore It* ts?ne is not justified, for the -ole purpos" of establishing a i rinciple to govern other cases. W> have oxsmincd carefully all tho case* re'erred to by counsel which show that n prohibition muy Issue alter sentence or Judgment; but in all these cases something remained which tho court or pany to whom the writ was dirtcted might do, and probably" would have done, as tho coll-clion of costs or otherwise enforcing the sentence. Here the return s'iows that nothing is left to be dope In the case. It is altogether gono out of the co irt, These views are sun ported bv ib? following cases:?In Vnited States vs. Peters. 3 Dallas, 121, winch was an application for pro hibition to tho Admiralty, this court sus|x;nded Its de cision to give the libellsnt an op|>ortuniiy to dismiss his lib i. Th?* court dually issued tho writ, but there s?mmiis no reason to dmibt, from the report ot tho c.tse, that It would have considered sucil action by th > hbellauts as nn answer to the request for the wilt. In the case of liall vs. Norwood, ftidrrlcns It., 121. a verv old case, when writs of prohibition were much more cotnniou than now, a pronib.tion was asked to a court t>f the Cinque Porta al Doter. While the case was under con sideration the reporter says:?"On Hie other hand the court was Informed that lhay had proceeded to .lodg ment and execution nt Dover, and therefore tliut they move here too late for a prohibition, and of tins opinion wa? the court, since there is no person to be prohibited, and possessions are never taken away or disturbed by prohibitions.''
