It appears from 'the Confession of Faith
of the Westminster divines, that the civil
magistrate was recognized by them as
having authority in such matters. The
language of the Confession on this subject
is as follois
"The civil magistrate may not assume
to himeelf-tbe administration of the word
and iacrafnents, or the power of the keys
of the Kingdom of Heaven; yet he hath
authoritY, and it, is his duty, to take
order, that unity and peace may be pre
served in the church, that the truth of
God be kept pure and entire, that all
blasphemies And heresies be suppressed,
all corruptiO, a and abuses in worships
and discipline prevented or reformed, and
all the ordinances of God duly settle ,
administered and observed. For e
better effecting whereof he hath pow r,
to call synods, to be resent at the ,
and to provide that W atsoever is tra s
eated in them be according to the nii d
of God." Chap. 23. Sec. 3.
It is proper to state that most, if not
all t of the Presbyterian Churches in this
conntry, have declared in substance,
that nothing appertains to the magistrati
cal power in reference to the Church, 4-
cept the protection of her members in the
Jun possession, exercise and enjoyment
of their rights, inasmuch as his office,
being civil and political, is exterior to
the Church. It is declared further that
the civil magistrate has no right to "in
terfere to regulate matters of faith and
worship." His duty is "to protect the
person, good name, estate, natural and
civil rights of all his subjects, in such a
way that no person be suffered, upon
any pretence, to violate them; and to take
order that all religions and ecclesiastical
assemblies, be held without molestation
The vote in Kentucky and Alabama
has been a light one. In the first the op
position have elected a large majority in
each branch of the Legislature, and their
State Treasurer, the only officer chosen
on a general ticket, has received about
two-thirds of the entire poll. Alabama
elected six Congressmen and a Legisla
ture on the 3d, but, at this writing, we
have no definite returns of the result.
The vote of Tennessee on Thursday was
larger than the State has ever before
girl', being for the first time participated
in both by the white and colored races.
Very nearly the entire of that white ele
ment which 'has hitherto been disfran
chised for disloyalty, has been relieved
from the disability by the policy of oev.
Smernn in the administration of the reg.
istry-law. It will surprise no one,
who has observed the course of
the canvass in that State, to learn that
Simi= is re-elected by a very large ma
jority and that the opponents of radical
Republicanism, comprising Democratic
Conservatives and rebels, have full con
trol of the new Legislature. This body
will elect an U. S. Senator, and will also
proceed to reverse the existing policy of
the State in reference to the suffrage. It
is probable that every White citizen will
be legally enfranchised, and that the col
orectsuffrage will be materially restricted,
if not altogether prohibited for the Allure.
Yet, upon these questions and that of
the Senatorship; there are possibly the
elements of great discord among the
Legislative majority, and the final results
may disappoint to some extent the re-
bel expectations. It will be some days
before we can have definite returns of
PROGRESS WITH THE INDIANS.
Here it is well past the mid-summer,
and we hear nothing yet of the threatened
Indian war. Isolated cases of hostile
outrages have been reported, but nothing
at ail which realizes the fearful apprehen
sions so generally felt at the opening of
the Spring. Indeed these fears did not
seem wholly groundless. In April and
May, the whole broad Indian territory,
from between the head-waters of theXis
souri and of the Arkansas and Red riv
ere, was fruitful of rtunors of a general
war. , We had quite reliable, advices of
such threatening preparations among all
the ksding tnibes, as to justify An almost
universal expectation that the Plains
would:witness; during the current year,
the last bloody struggle of these savages
against the encroachments of civilization.
There are good reasons for believing that
the danger did actually exist,—while the
peaceful repose of more than one-half the
season in which Indian hostilities are
practicable, affords the most acceptable
proof that the peril has been averted.
The entire Indian territory is to-day at
For this pacific situation we are much
indebted to the vigorous. campaigning of
our troops Wider Sumner( and his lieu
tenants in the late autumn of last year,
and even in the deep snows and, bitter
frost of December and January. The
.predatory tribes were pursued to their fast
nesses, months after the period when tbeir
former experience had guaranteed to them
a temporary exemption from any show
of; nnr military power, and the severest
chastisements ever visited upon these
savages were delivered in a winter cam-
Paign which was without parallel either
for its hardships or, fonts success.
But not'even their punishments would
have alone sufficed to secure our frontier
from the renewal, in -1869c0f Indian ag
gressions. With these tribes, we now

Indian wealth, the tribes were systemat
ieally defrauded by our Agents, while our
unprincipled traders, licensed and =li
censed, held them by the throat. They
were annually driven into hostilities
against the frontier, as their only recourse
to supply themselves with the necessaries
of savage life. A tribe which found it
self robbed of the stipulated supplies of
ammunition and blankets, found as regu
larly its only alternative to be either star
vation or war. The disgraceful facts
which have, year after 'year, been asserted,
accounting in this way for the annually
recurring Indian wars, have at last se
cured the most complete proof.
The new Indian policy of the present
has completed by peaceful means the
work which - SamarnArr's arms began, and
the conviction that white faith is to be
honorably kept ensures that repose for
our frontier which no respect for our
military power, ample as that has been
proved, could permanently command
among these wretched savrkges. For the
first time-in the history of our dealings
with the Indians, existing treaties are
fulfilled, this year, in their lette; and
spirit, and every tribe which roams over
our territories. or is encamped on there
servations set apart for their Mimes, is
content with a peace which gives to them
protection and the supply of their indis
pensable necessities. Peace Commis
sions, enlightened and faithful Superin
tendents and Agents of capacity and in
tegrity are fast bringing the Indian prob
lem to a satisfactory solution. These are
the instrumentalities which have not only
averted, for this year, that war of exter
mination which seemed unavoidable in
the Spring, but which, sustained faith
ally in the future, must finally accom
plish the peaceful civilization of the sav
age tribes. .

THE OIL TRADE.
Interesting to Oil Shippers—Who Shall
Lose by Lealisge:—Tbe Question Set-.
Friday morning Judge McCandless,
in the United States 'District Court, de
livered the opinion of the Court in the
case of the United States _vs. Brewer
et. al., which was argued some days
since. The case attracted great attention
among oil dealers, and as given below
will be found very 'interesting and im
This is a case stated upon an oil trans
portation bond. On the 88th of June,
1863, the defendants shipped by railroad
from the Twentieth District of Pennsyl
yenta to the Fifth District of New Jersey
1,080 barrel's, containing 45,324 gallons of
refined oil, in good packages and under
legal permits and certificates from the
proper authorities. Under like authori
ty the oil was removed from the Fifth
District of New Jersey to the bonded
warehouse of Reynolds, Pratt it Co.. in
the Second District of New York, with
out inspection and gauging in the New
Jersey District, with the same effect as if
the Second District of New York had
been the destination set forth in the per
mitand bond under which such trans
portation was made.
The oil was properly gauged and in
spected in the bonded warehouse of
Reynolds, Pratt dt Co., on the 80th of
July, 1886. By this inspection there was
found to be a loss of 6,264 gallons. For
the tax of twenty cents per gallon upon
this quantity so lost, this action is insti
tuted; the tax upon the residue of the
45,824 galions'having been properly set
tled and accounted for. The effect of
continued extremely hot weather upon
oil barrels,' exposed for the length of
time ordinarily required in transit from
the Twentieth District of Pennsylvania
to the Second District of New York, is to
decompose their lining and open their
seams. From the last of June to the
close of July, 1866, the weather continued
excessively hot. The loss of so much of
the 6,264 gallons as exceeds the quantity
allowed for leakage, by the regulations
of the Department at Washington, arose
from the effect of solar heat upon the
barrels containing it.
The amount of actual leakage on oil
removed in bond at the time of this loss,
allowed by the regulations in pursuance
of the sixty.first section of the Act of the
80th June, 1884, was not to exceed three
and one•half per cent. on any distance ex
ceeding five hundred miles., The dis
tance from the Twentieth District of
Pennsylvania to the Second Distifet of
New York is in excess of flye hundred
It is not disputed that an allowance of
one thousand, Live hundred and eighty
six • gallons. or three and one-half per
cent. on 45,324 gallons, should barnacle
for leakage, but it is claimed that there
should be a'deduction for the remaining
four thousand, six hundred and seventy
eight galloni, because the loss was occa
sioned by the effect of solar heat upon
the article transported. •

exempt from taxation. If for sale or
consumption in the United State), it - was
subject to a tax of twenty cents per gal
lon, to be assessed and collected, and
paid . by the producer or manufacturer
thiireof, as is provided by the ninety
fourth section of the act of July 13,.1866.
By the stitty-Brat section (act third,
March, '65,) the oil may be removed,
without the payment of the duty, under
such rules and regulations, and upon
the execution of such transportation
bonds, or other, security, as the
Secretary of = the Treasury may
preacribe. Upon such -removal it
must be transferred to a bonded ware
house, where it is again inspected and
gauged, and "the duty.shall be assessed
and paid on any deficiency or reduction of
the number of gallons (beyond such al
loirance for leakage, as may be estab
lished by tue regulations of the Commis
stoner of Internal Revenue) received at
the warehouses from the number of gal
lons as stated in the bond at the place of
shipment." Here there is a plain ride of
computation, and the per centum of da•
duction being Axed by a regulation of the
Department, in conformity to an Act of
Congress, becomes a part of the law and
of as binding force as if incorporated in
the body of the Act. .
TAX ON OIL.
It is contended by defendants' coun
sel, in an argument of much ability, that
the tax is upon the consumption. It is
not upon the consumption, but upon the
manufactured article.. The government
is not to ascertain whether it has been
consumed, but whether it has been ex
ported. If so, it is free. If not, it is
subject to the tax of twenty per cent. per
gallon. Fixing a maximum per tentage
for leakage, was designed•to prevent the
possibility of /trends, by the with
drawal or abstraction of any portion
of the oil during its period of tran
sit. Stich being the rule pre
scribed by competent authority, courts
have no right to depart from
it, even in case of absolute loss by the
action of the elements. The Govern
ment is not' an insurer. The owner in
curs, and must take the resposibility.
The simple inquiry is, has he complied
with the condition of his bond? Has he
produced to the Collector of the Twen
tieth District of the. State of Pennsyl
vania a certificate showing that such
merchandise has been duly placed in the
warehouse designated. from which it
cannot be removed except for exporta
tion, or, upon payment of the tax, or had
he pai d duties required by law?
It is wholly unnecessary to enter into
a discussion as to the effect of solar heat
upon refined oil, or as to the penetrating
and permeating qualities of the liquid
itself. It was precisely because of the
operation of this agency that a rule was
necessary to fix the allowance. In some
cases there would be no leakage at all,
in some less than three and a half per,
cent.; in a majority of cases about three
and a half per cent., and in some cases
much more. On what principle is a rule
of law governing this: subject to be re
!aged and set aside, because there was
extraordinary warm weather in June or
July of a particular year? As was
ably argued -- by the counsel for the
Government, that the leakage in this
case happened in the ordinary way,
was produced by the ordinary causes,
with the difference, that one cause, solar
heat, was operating with more than ordi
nary power. The result was leakage,
and the law, and the regulations of
the Department. do not authorize a
distribution of leakage into Ordinary
and extraordinary as respects an• abate
ment of taxes. The law calls the loss
thus produced leakage. and has pro
vided a rule regulating the • allowance,
from which, however great the hard
ship, it is not our province to depart.
Any other construction would not only
open a wide door to fraud. but would
practically nullify the•regulation itself.
It follows that the defendants have no
lawful claim to or deduction for the feur
thousand six hundred and seventy-eight
gallons, by reason of its loss, caused by
solar heat, and judgment must be ren
dered for the United States for the sum of
nine hundred and thirty-five dollars and
sixty cents, with costs of suit. Judgment
