It will "he remembered 'that.' Mr. John

was arrested Isstweek by Gkx: CAOWALLAnsrt,'

until he received ()Hers So to do froin his supe

The Marshal wentto the Fort for the ptir

sent his'card to the . General..with . a "statement
of the'object of his visit--to . which the General
sent a response that tthe had no, reply to make.",
Wiiereupon the . .Marshal' returned to the Court-.
room and reported the reiult to
Taney.• The Judge - was highly excited; and,
remarking that he supposed it useless' to attem

vvould.write . out his views of the case, and sub
mit them to the President, urging him ta main
tain the dignity of the law. So ends the. case
tor the.prestit: .•
The question, is whether in time of war, an
inferier officer is bound to dbey the mandate of
a court in preference to that 'of his military
superior. We know that it , has been held'hy
some authorities, that a military subordinate is
personally 'answerable for obeying any irnpo..
per command of his superior, but. the. position
has•never been clearly maintained. ..Of course
if.the soldier is expected to discuss the propri
ety of every cornmandottere , vvould . be an end
to all,. military discipline, without which
ariny would be, worse, thatt,,uselesi: We4 l '. l
not pretend to deny the • subservieney of the
military to the civil polder, but simply , assert
the old doctrine that , the ploipal,,should be
.held fur, the act of the agent.' „For instance, it .
Gen. Cadwallader, had arrested Mr. Merryman
.upon his own volition, he would ,be properly
answerable; but vvhen..'he hag or4y , acted in
'conformity with the orders of the Commander. 7
