Opinion by Jtdd, J.
This is an action brought bv a grantee under a
conveyance from F. G. i'adeken, acknowledged
on tbe 14th August. 1875. to recover damages
lor tbe value of u sugar mill taken nod sold by
tbe defendants us Padeken's assignees, in bank
ruptcy. The jury returned a verdict for pluiolilT
1'be defendauU moved for a new trial on tbe
ground (1st) of errors of the court in excluding
certain evidence, and in charging tbe jury, and
(2nd) that tbe verdict was contrary to evidence.
Tbe alleged errors ol law are :
That the court erred in not permitting evi
dence to go to the jury, offered by tbe defend
ants, to prove tbe general reputation of F. U.
Pudeken'ri insolvency at tbe lime of tbe execu
tion of the alleged deed, us u circumstance to
presume n knowledge of this fact on tbe part or
the plaintiff ot the lime.
The caw of Lee vs. Kilburn. 3 l J ray. 594. is
quoted as authority in favor of adiniltiog evi
dence that, at tbe lime of the conveyunce. the
debtor was reputed to be insolvent in the town
where be resided as competent evidence to prove
that the defendant bod reasonable cause to be
lieve him insolvent.
So also Denny vs. Puna, 2. Cusbing 160.
Hut in the Massachusetts Statues of 1641.
under which these cases arose, Ibe property as
signed by in insolvent to a preferred creditor,
can be recovered by the assignee in insolvency,
provided the creditor had " reasonable cause to
believe " that the debtor was insolvent.
The same provision ls incorporated in (135 of
the Uenernl Kankrnpt law of the United Slates
General reputation of insolvency might very
propeily tend to show that the purchaser bud
reasenalrle cause to believo that such was the
fact. But in this Kingdom our Statute con
tain? DO such provision. It read as fulluws :
J978 " Every assignment, conveyunce, or
tranefer of his (tbe insolvent's) properly lay him.
alter he shall have become insolvent, or com
mitted an act of bankruptcy, except upon a good
considitfgtion to a bona-Gde purchuser hirviug no
nolice'or li is -insolvency or bankruptcy, shall be
void, aod'-lbe properly so transferred may be re
covered and disposed of by ihn assignees lor the
benefit of the creditors."
It is not sufficient under our Statute to show
that tbe purchaser had " reasonable cause to be
lieve" that bis vendor was insolvent or hud com
mitted an act of bankruptcy, but he must be
shown to have bad " notice " of such insolvency
or bankruptcy. (Jeneral reputation in the place
where the debtor resided would not be eridence
of notice to tbe particular puichaser, and under
tbe wording ot our Stalate would be inadmissi
ble. It is alleged that the court erred in instruct
ing the jury that II lliey nno that the mill was
a fixture not moveable without injury to tbe
freehold, they will Gad that tbe plaintiff was en
titled to it under tbe mortgage."
What the court did charge was as follows :
" If the jury find that the null wan immoveable,
fixed tc the freehold so that it could not be
taken away without injury to the freehold and
was attached to the premises at the time tbe
mortgage was mode, then it wonld pass to tbe
plaintiff us mortgagee without reference to the
bill of sale. But if tbe jury find it moveable,
tin .i they will consider whether the bill of sale
conveying it was in fraud of creditors." To this
the plaintiff excepted, but no exception was
taken to ibis instruction by tbe defendants.
It. therefore, cannot be considered now.
The third canse of exception alleged is that
the court erred in refusing tbe instruction inked
for by the defendant, that it was incumbent, on
tbe pluiutiff to show a consideration for the sugar
mill, outside of the mortgage consideration, as
said mill was not included in the mortgage.
The court charged that the jury most find that
the sile or the mill was Tor a " valuable con
sideration," tod tbit Wigbt was a bona-flde pur
chaser, and tbul the consideration stated in the
conveyance must be considered by them as suffi
cient unless it was rebutted. To Ibis no excep
tion was taken at this trial.
Tbe motion for a new trial also alleged that
tbe verdict was contrary to evidence in that the
testimony of John I'adeken the son ot F. U.
Patdeken, sbons that when the deed in question
was executed it was with the condition that it
would be returned in three months if Padeken
got over his troubles and was therefore mado to
defraud, hinder or delay creditors. Tbe jury
were properly instructed on ibis point, " that
if they believed from tbe testimony that ibe deed
in quesliou was fraudulent that is, made to pass
tbe property into Wight's hands temporarily
only, then tbey might find that it was given to
delay or hinder his creditors and their verdict
must be for the defendants." Now, ihe jury
were either not convinced that this testimony
was true, or that it was e ifficiently certain to
admit only of the construction placed upon it by
The testimony of Dayton and Fyfe of the
contents of a letter written by Wight to Padeken
after tbe Kill of sale was given, in also claimed
to sustain the testimony of John Padeken. Tbe
letter as the witness Fyfe best remembers it,
makes Wight to gay " if you will send me a bill
of sale (of certain chattels) I will keep them
along with the other articles of yours which I
now have, for if the Jackson suit goes against
yon it will sweep everything away and if you get
oat of prison, I will return them to yon. less ex
penses." Tbe letter wonld certainly tend to show collu
sion of some kind, but its conclusiveness having
been left to the jury, and the fact of its having
been written after tbe deed was given may have
led the jury to decide that it referred too re
moter; to the conveyanceio question, and I can
not say that tbey bod no right to make this in
ference. It is not sufficient that the evidence might in
cline tbe Court to a different result, for the
province of the jury is to judge of tbe credibility
of witnesses and the conclusiveness of tbe eri
dence, and I am nnable to say that tbe evidence
which was laid before them was so manifestly
or so strongly preponderated against tbe verdict
they rendered as to force tbe conclusion that
tbey must bare been controlled by some improper
bias or bave misunderstood tbe evidence.
A new trial is therefore refused.

Correspondence of the & F. Chronicle.
City of Mkxico, Dec. 9, 1876. We hire the
details of tho bloody battle fought at Huamantlu,
State ol Puebln, tbe result of which enabled tbe
revolutionists to enter this city as conquerors.
The action commenced at 8 o'clock on tbe morn
ing of tbe 16th nit.. General Diaz commanding
Ihe insurgents, estimated at 4500 strong, and
General Alntorre the National troops, estimated
at about 4000 men. Diaz had taken np a posi
tion at tbe small village of Tecoac, near llua
manlla. where tbe real battle was fought. Gene
ral Alatorro, ieurninu' the tactics of the enemy,
ordered General Yepez with 1000 men to make
an attack along the Iront of tbe revolutionary
force, but not to push a fight too ardently until
he conld develop the strength ot the enemy.
General Villigrun advanced on the right flunk,
supported by artillery, and General Topefe on
tbe left Sank. The Federal troops commenced
the attack, tbe revolutionists replying with a
vigorous onslaught. The latter are reported to
have hnd the weukesl position, and being flunk
ed on the right and left, and attacked in front,
they found it hard work to defend themselves.
Up to 10 o'clock there was but little advantage
gained on either side, although the fighting was
severe. At 10 the contending armies stripped
for the fight, us we may express it, and from this
hour until 2 o clock the fighting was desperate.
The soldiers in many instances fought hand to
hand, brothers felling brothers on the field until
death terminated tbe conflict. At tbe beat of
the battle great clouds of dust arose so that it
was almost impossible for the contending forces
to see each other, and for a shcrt time, owing to
this cause, there wus a slight lull in the slaughter.
HEROISM OF OF.NKRAL ALAT0RRE.
At about 2 o'clock couriers arrived informing
Alatorre that General Gonzales, revolutionist,
with 2500 men, wus coming to the support of
General Diaz, end already in the uear distance,
making a forced march. General Aiatorre had
himself sent orders for a reinforcement of 3000
men. a portion of whom be could only expect
late in the afternoon, and the remainder nut
until tbe fullowing day. Already outnumbered
by the revolutionists, be knew that if he gave
Gonzales time to reach Diaz and engage in the
fight, bis gallant little army would bo cut to
pieces by tbe combined forces of the insurgents.
Believing that he could strike tbe victorious
blow before the arrival of Gonzales, he ordered
his troops to charge at the point of the bayonet,
and with sword in hand be led and cheered his
men to tbe attack. The troops, inspired by his
heroic conduct, fell upon the enemy with terri
ble force, but only to be crushed, mangled and
decimated. Gonzales was already on the field,
and his forces, in conjunction with those of Diaz
charged upon the Peilerals with the fury of
tigers. The national forces were utterly deci
mated, having left the immense number, con
sidering the original strength, of 1900 dead on
the buttle field. This battle was tho most san
guinary and decisive of the present civil war.
THK LOSS ON BOTH SIDES.
The total reported loss of tbe national troops
was 1900 killed. 800 wonndud, and 563 prisoners,
including General Topele, besides the capture of
all the artillery. There were captured besides
420 mules, 200 horses and all the equipage. The
revolutionists gare their losses at much lower
figures, numely. 857 killed and 475 wounded, in
cluding general Gonzales, which makes a total
of 1350 in killed and wounded. Tho fight was
conducted according to the rules of civilized
warfare, and no brutality wus practiced on either
side. General Alatorre barely escaped with his
life, and fled to Puebla, accompanied by fifteen
men .'.ml Adjutants Guimera and Alatorre, the
latter ihe nephew of the defeated General. The
wouuded in battle were well cared for, the citi
zens, irrespective ol political or parly proclivi
ties, caring for them in the most hospitable and
tor srriods complications followino
The result of the battle being known, there were
nothing left for I, r,lo but to save his life by
flight- On this subject and the shameful coo
duct of Iglesias. ex-Chief Justice of the Supreme
Court, year renders urealready informed Ihrougb
special correspondence. The lutes,! movements
on the military boards is the action of General
Jose Ceballos, commanding the Fourth Division
of the national army. This eminent military
leader has his headquarters at Guadulujaru, State
ol Jalisco, and hi- command is distributed
throughout. Jalisco, Gonora, Sinaloa, Colima and
Lower California. Ceballos has been one of tho
etaanchest supporters of the fallen Lerdo, be
lieving bim to be the legitimate President and
legally re-elected. Now that Lerdo is do longer
the Executive, General Ceballos has tnudo his
opinions known and marked out his line of con
duct. In a proclamation issued at Guadalajara
he recounts the exciting events of the hour, and
plainly says that he will keep himself entirely
aloof from Diaz nnd Iglesins, recognizing neither
of them as President. He will see that law and
order are preserved in the military department
nnder his command, and will thus patiently
await a new election, when he will recognize the
candidate lawfully elected and recognized as such
by Congress and the Supreme Court. It is ow
ing to tbe great influence of Ceballos that the
Mexican Slates on the Pacific so long proved
fuithful to the dethroned Lerdo.
late legal Government, and which is not yet re
cognized as dead tiy its supporters. So long
as those two vessels act nnder orders, and Gene
rals Arce and Mariscal conduct their present
policy nnder CebsUos, Lerdo will have a refuge
and asylum. Under such rule, either Dial or
Iglesias will be unable to gain a foothold on tbe
Pacific. It Is probable that the two revolutiona
ry leader mentioned will have all they want to
do in attending to each other personally. They
bare already laid down tbe gage of battle, and
their respective forces are marshaling for a despe
conctliation an impossibility.
The greatest efforts have been made by inde
pendent politicians, men of influence (lid posiiii n
to bring about an understanding between Diaz
and Iglesias, so as to prevent further bloodshed,
if possible, bat all to no purpose. Tbe revolu
tionary chiefs will not recognize the demands
personall made. Diaz wants Iglesias to recog
nize, in its fullness, the plan of Tuxtepoc, as
confirmed at Palo Blanco, but this the Chief
Justice will not listen to. Iglesias promulgates
his demands, but Diaz spurns them. Thus
nothing can decide the difference but a resort to
battle, in tbe mean time a host of petty leaders
have arisen who are "pronouncing" for them
selves in all parts of tbe republic, and only recog
nizing the claims which they themselves set
lorth. They have it all their own way, for there
is no central power to war upon them. Forced
loan is the order of the day, and when money
cannot '.has be procured pillage and plunder are
certain to follow. As can well be imagined from
the condition of things herein set forib. the
whole republic is in a shocking state of anarchy,
and the oppressed people, groaning with the bur
dens levied upon them, are helpless in the grasp
of military desperadoes. The wisest men can
nee no peace at present, and the prediction that
if Lerdo were dethroned the republic would be
come the prey of n despot and dictator is likely
to come true.

WIGHT m. TT.
C. JOtiES and R.
Assignees qf F. Q
Tbe Court baring considered all the allega
tions and exceptions in this case, are of opinion,
that tbe rulings of the Justice, who held the
trial were correct.
The letter the contents of which as testified to
by Mr. Fyfe are set forth In the opinion of Mr.
Justice Judd, we are of the opinion not only
lends to show collusion as it stated by him, but
is very strong evidence in that direction, for it
shows a willingness to take property for the pur
pose oi sneitenog it irom creditors. I be letter
states that he " will keep them along with other
articles ol ours wnicb 1 now hare. This would
veil hare justified s verdict for the plaintiff. But
the letter was written subsequently to the con
veyance, which is in question in this case, and
it was placed in a correct light by the Judge jn
his charge, and was probably taken into full con
sideration, perhaps the jury thought it was Dot
complications upon complications.
While Ceballos has taken this positive neutral
ground, it is interesting to note that the Stale
of Jalisco, through it Legislature, has recoguized
tbe claims of Iglesias as Provisional President of
tbe republic, basing its action on tbe fact that
Mexico has no President, and hence that Iglesias
as Chief Justice, becomes President. lie is
Vico-President through his being Chief Justice.
The State of Colima has followed the action of
Jalisco, though both are within the military
limits controlled by Ceballos. What will result
from this conflict of authorities it is difficult to
determine. The State militia must obey the
Governors, and the Federal forces must obey tbe
General in command. How then can Iglesias
receive the homage due bim as President, when
his defenders and opponents are in Such conflict T
So far as heard from, General Acre, the military
commander in Sinaloa, and General Marescal,
the military Governor of Sinaloa, act in harmony
with Ceballos. General Munscai bas already
issued a pronunciamento denouncing Iglesias as a
usurper, and be has never recognized the claims
of Diaz except as a revolutionary agilator who
should be squelched at all hazards. Tbe other
States of the republic are divided between Diaz
and Iglesins, tbe latter having the majority. The
great revolutionist has the' best fighting material,
the large body of his men being warlike Indians.
A great battle is expected to be fought at some
point id tbe State of Gnanajuato between tbe
contending ferees, and if Diaz is again victorious
he will then be the true Dictator of Mexico at
least for s short time. The army is divided,
some clinging to the ex-Chief Justice and some
to the leader of the victorious Indians.
COS DUCT AND ATTiTUDE OP THE NAVY.
Although the Mexican navy is small, it has
played a very conspicuous part in the existing
civil strife. Tbe Tour war vessels comprising it
kept the ports on tbe Atlantic and the Pacific in
the bands of the Government until the foil of
Lerdo. After this a characteristic episode took
place. Two ol the war vessels, the Iodepen
cia and tbe Liliertad. were lying at tbe port of
Vera Cruz. Their commanders saw the storm
brewing and became afjitated aa to the course to
pursue. The Libert ad resolved to "pronounce"
against the " Government," and went in pursuit
of her companion, accusing ber of being a revolu
tionary privateer, if not a pirate ship. The chase
was' long and exciting, bat the Li ber tad escaped
from her pursuer, and is gone, no one knows
where. She may fly tbe colon of Iglesias or
Disx, the one to-day and the other to-morrow ;
it will not make much difference which. Tbe
war vessels on tbe Pacific, the Mexico and the
Democrats, are under the control of General
Ceballos, as the highest representative of the
In every Mohammedan community European,
Asiatic or Africun there exist a few men who
believe tbeir creed with an intensity which
scarcely any other faith inspires, who entirely
trust its promises of future reward, and who are
so filled with the pride of being intrusted with
the " one true faith." that they hold life and
wealth and ease absolutely nothing in compari
son with the extension or defense of Islam. They
will dare to revenge an insult to it, endure any
thing to wiu a convert, and face anybody who
offers Ihoui through death nn opportunity of re
alizing its promises, with a sort of delight in
suffering which Christians consider a prerogative
of their own martyrs.
Over and over again bave a few Mohammedan
soldiers charged whole masses of Europeans, and
cut a way through them, or been cat to pieces,
without a man of them making an effort to es
cape. Over and over again have minute bodies
of Moplahs in Southern India, seldom exceeding
twenty in number, sluin some Hindoo oppressor,
defined the British Government, and when at
tacked, rushed on the Highlanders' bayonets,
content if only the fatal thrust were deep enough
to let them reach the infidels with their knives.
Over and over again have small bodies of Turks
defending villages or forts, refused all terms, en
dured starvation till the last food was eaten, and
then died fighting with a sort of triumphant joy
ousnees in death. Nothing in the history of
Greece, or Koine. or England, surpasses the hero
ism which Mussulmans, excited by their creed,
have Irom time to time exhibited, under the
most favorable circumstances, and there is no
reason to doubt that tho spirit which animated
such men animates some of their co-religionists
now. The idea that the fanatics have all died
out is as false as the idea that there are no pious
Mussnlmans left, men who live up to their light
ns strictly and earnestly as any Calvinists or
High Churchmen in England. l.on. Spectator.
An Elkpiiant'r Tooth. We saw the molar
tooth of an elephant or some huge beast that
was taken from terjtary sandstone formation at
the Stale Prison quarry. The tooth, or what
remains of it, is seven inches long by four inches
wide, and, as Professor Stewart says, who has
the article in charge, it must hure belonged to an
animal thirty feet long by fifteen feet in bight.
In tbe days of that elephant's life the Miocene
period palm nnd other tropical trees occupied
the places of tbe present sagebrush. Just think
of it I In a few thousand years mastodons have
turned into jackass rabbits and chipmunks. A
tusk ten feet long was discovered in tbe quarry a
few months ago.
Tea Culture in India. Tbe introduction and
progress of tea culture in British India form a
subject of interest for those who are curious to
watch the shifting of trade from one nation to
another. In 1874 Great ' Britain imported
18,000.000 pounds of tea Irom India, which was
fur in excess of previous importations. Lust year
there was a continuation of the increase, and the
quantity rose to 25,000.000 pounds, valued at
nearly 811.000,000. This industry has been
carried on, in a smaller way, for half a century
and more, bat has made its greatest progress
during the past ten years.
