ATLATA. March 11.--The House passed the
fifteenth amendment by a vote of 74 Lyea to 69
Members opposing Its adoption said the artl-le
destroyed rights exercised by States since the
tonndatlon of the government, and a concession
by the people North and South that they have no
right to determine the right of suffrage. They
claim it a ooncession by Congress that the recoa
struction acts are unconstitutional and that It in
vests Congres with the right to impose suffrage
of all men on the States, irrespective of color or
race. They say that the fnndamen'al principle of
Democracy I is hat negro suffrage is wrong, not from
any ill w.1i towards the n-gro. but because the
Democratic party is a white man's 'party a,d
represents the intel Isence and virtue of the coun
try; that Gov. Bullock belongs to a class who
desire elevation of the negro above the whites,
as b9 that means alone they can secu:e power. and
when the Republican convention met last May,
they de-ided that negro seltrage should be Im
iposed on the states which had seceded, but not
on ihe loyal States becarte incontltaUtionat.
the Republicans said the Dem3erate must settle
the matter: that the pill loiked bad, and It was
bad, but when swallowed they woo:d feel better.
The r ,treme Radicals and Democrats left the

A suit for heavy damages. which was brought in
the Filth District Court on March 1s, lttt, is now
just coning to a final trial, and is one that prom
iles to be of unusual interest. ren plaintiff is Jon
athan 1). Knox, superintendent of the leather
msnuuactory at Magnolia, Miss. He brings suit
against William Henderson, president of the com
Nasy, alleging that he has made, during tle
miouths of December lt67 and January lad4. at
Meguolia and at uammit on the Jackson railroad.
,tatemuents to the ellect that he (Knox) had taken
idvantsge of his position as superittendent of the
works toswindle the company out of $ i6.00,
cuupling these statements with abusive language
about Knox. Mr. HIloderson replied by denying
he allegations all and singular, and all aligad:tin,
.1 malice or evil intent towards lu.ox. As t,l tle
witnesses live in Missisrippi, comaiusaiOus hat to oe
i-tiled to take the testimony, and tris, together with
he interrogatoriies and counter Interroigatories.

wsayor of Magnolia, who says tod&lhe a.a B.auiaug
just alter be had given his testimony; that he,
B1rt tuig, was under the lntienuce of liquor; that
It. L. C'sater'. character is good, but teat hie would
not believe Michael Hauer, the i'her witnes. on
oath nine times out of ten; would not believe him
at any time unless he (Traube) knew that he was
.peaking the truth. Mr. Traoue also testifies that
Mr. Knox's general character is not good; also,
that he (frauhbe) was employed by Mr. Header
son as his attorney, but not to hunt up evidence,
impLpy to attend to the examiona:io of witaesaes.
Deisattint also brings or ward W. L. Conly, spe
cils ofliter of Mlagnolia. who testifies ~ at he would
not believe Mr. Knox under oath in any sait
where he might be him.elt interested.
James J. fhannon, of Meridtn,. Miss., also teet:
fles that he has known Mr. Kunox or twenty-two,
years, and that in 1s53 Knox. who was then living
at Paulding, Miss., made a secret sale of his pir ,
perty to avoid paying his debts, and left the trown
and came to New (rmeans, where he was suhi-.
quautly arrested, and where he tore up somt
niotes that he had preterdid to amsign in payment
of a debt due Cohen & Bro., of Palding. W ile
in Paulding, Knox was known as a "notorious
liar," and was expelled from his. Maaoso lodge on
charges of lylmg and slandering preferred by
hhauncn. Mr. -hannon further states t:ist he
lever has had "m hat could be catled a pearsnal
difficulty with Knox."
The above is substantially the case as it now
stands. The trial commetnced yesterday, anid wli

It is not neceeary to decide whether the ootton
in controversy was delivered frst to the plaiatin
or to the defendant, nor whether t was neceseery
to prove the law of Missplpi as a fact la the
case, for I Ma satisfied that there is no snbstantial
diflerence between the rule of the common and
civil law, by which the question on which the de
cision turns is to be deioded. The sale to the
plaintiff was made ia 1863, and that to the defend
ant in 18665; and It is proved that when Mahon
porchased the cotton he was informed that it had
previously been sold to the plaintif This knowl
edge vitiates his contract. Boah, the vendor, had
no cotton to sell to the knowledge of Mahon,
through whom the defendant claims. The ao
thorities relied on refer to the question at whose
risk, Is the property which has been sold when
something remains to be done by the vendor, sad
lay down the same principle as that contained in
our own law, where, for instance, the sale is made
by the tale measure or weight, the thing is at the
risk of the vendor until, the counting, measuring
or weighing has taken place, but in every other
respect the contract is complete, and the property
transferred to the purchaser as soon as the parties
have agreed on the thing sold and the price to be
paid for it. Shiefd vs. Morgan, 9 M5 6i; Hill vs.
Mergan, 4 M., 8. 477.
It is therefore ordered, adjudged and decreed
that the plaintit recover of the defendant the
one hundred and twenty-four bales o. cotton se
questered herein with costs of suit.

Halleck, T'. A f, rtiuri contracts can bN made.

THE OEAD MAN ARRESTED - A WASHINGTON
DETECTIVE CALLED IN.
Efficient Servies of Mr. Geo. & Darl ag,
Agent of the Inurance Compan
The annals of human crime display mean sad
varied phases of villainy, and show too oftes how
men have dedlcated to wrong doing nergie sad
abilities that legitimately applied would bring to
their possessor wealth and fame; but we dobrt
if ever a bolder, more complete, or more ole gly
contrived scheme of villainy ha been coaocrted
than that which we are about to describe-and,
certainly, a conspiracy was never more patiently
and accurately traoed up, or a crime and its mo
tives more thoroughly sifted, and more complstely
exposed, than was the attempted fraud whioc has
just been brought to light.
The principal party in the transaction ils A
thony Wayne Faulkner, a resident in the to n of
Columbia, Caldwell parish, ex-captain in the Qon
federate army, whence he was casahiered for sell
ing furloughs to his men, and at present scalawag
representative of Caldwell parish in the lower
house of the black and tan Legislature. The
party that he attempted to victimize was the
Pbmrix Mutual Lite Insurance Company of lHart
ford, Connecticut, and more directly its agent Ia
New Orleans, Mr. Geo. 8. Darling. The story of
the villainy, with all the twists and turns of the
criminals, for there are several parties impliated,
is a long and a very curious on. We will endeavor
to tell it as succinctly as possible.
On May 16, 1867, Mr. George 8. Darling was
appointed general agent for the Phboix Mtptnal
Life Insurance Company, of Hartford, Cbnn.,
with his office at New Orleans. On 21st May he
received an application to iosure the life of thes.
Vix, of Columbia, Caldwell parish, for S~O0,
which application was signed by Thomas Vix, and
made out for the benefit of his con-in, Win. C.
Noble. It was signed by Reuben Chadwick, an
witness, and the certificate of a friend, which ap
pears on the back of applications, was bigned by
A. W. Faulkner. All these parties, as will subse
quently appear, were interested in the conspiracy.
Accompanying the application was the physi.
clan's certificate of Vix'a good health, sig.od by
C. C. Meredith, M. L., a highly respectable phyrsi
rian and a gentleman who bears no pers at all in
the transaction, he hiving given his serov;ee ln ua
doubted good faith.
On June 20, Faulkner presented himself at Mr.
Darling's office, corner Canal and St. Chalgle
:reete. to get the p licy and pay the premium.
Mr. Darling had not then sent the application to
the home office. During his interview with Mr.
Darling, Mr. Faulkner seemed very uneasy about
somethming, so much so as at once to determine Mr.
Darling to watch the policy well. The applies
tion ans sent on to Hartford and when the policy
was returned, Faulkner called again on Mr. Dar
l;ng and paid the first premium, $167 20. Drtlng
these interviews Faulkner represented himself as
a friend of Noble, in whose favor the policy stood.
and as merely paying toe money for him. trhen
the first step, the getting Vix insured, was effected.
About the 1st of November. 187, Mr. Darling
received a letter from Faulkner, stating that he
had received a letter from Noble, who had said
that Vix, the Insured man, was quite ill. A very
few days after another letter came from Faulkner,
containing the melancholy intelligence that Vi:
was dead, and stating that due proofs of iask
would soon be sent down to New Orleans To
corrobofte his asertion Faulkner inolosel the
following letter, which he stated he had Just re.
ceived from Noble. It is a beautiful specimen o

Crptain A. W. Paulkner:
;,-r-1 am sorry to have to report to yuc the
death of my conusin Thomas Vix, who, it seems,
hio been ,iLk for srone time, and died before he
reached his destonation. ()n the night of the 4th
November, 1e67, I received a note from C. a.
Grinalbaw, that be was at Itose8eid and very sios.
I went down the next moning and to my regret I
found him dead. He died at tir. A. Carraway's
house. He says that he had all the attention that
he could give him. He refoused to have a phyli
clase, saying that he had medicine with him; yet
Carraway sent for one but coold not get one. You
will instruct me, if you please, how to proceed te
collect the policy which I hold. From his letters to
me he most have had money, but I have not beean
able as yet to trace it up. I will try and see yoa
in the course of a week or two.
