QIAN9ES Ii» THE BANKRUPT LAW. —TIIO
House of Representatives yesterday passed
Mr. Mercur's bill to amend tbe bankrupt
law. This bill, it is understood, places
the appointment of registers with the
United Slales circuit courts, antl provides
that tho time for bankrupts to file their
petitions shall bo extended from one year
to two years ; that the reversals of decree,,
in bankruptcy shall be made only in the
United States courts, and also that
exemptions under State laws shall not ex
ceed $1,000, so far as the operation of the
lankrupt law is concerned. The last two
amendments are designed to meet attempts
f State courts to impede the jurisdiction
of the laws, and, in the case of exemption,
o make it uniform io operation. When
the act was first passed it provided that
Stato exemption, existing ia 1864, should
be recoguiz'jd. The object of this limita
ion was to prevent tho Southern States,
s was then feared would be the case, from
making excesiivo exemptions in the in
ereat of bankrupt landowners, &c.
Joshua Hill of Georgia, has been ad- j
mitted to a seat in the United States Sen
ate from that State. Mr. Hill was one of
he numerous claimants to the Senator
hip from Georgia, and was elected by a
)emocratic Legislature. He was born in
South Carolina, and is a lawyer by pro
ession. Ho was elected a member of the
"hirty-Qfth and Thirty-sixth Congresses
rom Georgia, aud withdrew in 1861 and
eturned to Georgia. He did not take an
ctive part in tho rebellion, and is conser- |
ative in his teidoncies. In 1886 Andrew
ohnson appointed him collector of the
fort of Savannah.
Dhath Ratk ix Washtkoton, St.
Louis, and Richmond.—Dr. F. M. String
eld, Secretary of the Washington Board
of Health, furnishes a comparative state
ment of mortality as follows; City of
Richmond, total number of deaths during
ho year 1870, 1,600, population 51,037,
or 3.11 per cent. St. Louis, deaths 6,670,
population 810,864, or 2.14 per cent.
Washington, deaths 1,934, population
109,204, or 1.77 per cent.
A Rhsh of Cotton.—On Monday four
steamers, four ships and ono brig arrived
at Liverpool from the United States with
an aggregate of 22,400 bales of cotton, and
were followed the next day by a steamer
and a ship with 6,749 more.
The New Spanish Kino.—The new
King of Spain goes to bed every night at
en'o'clock, like a good Christian, and rises
betimos, which astounds the Spaniards of
he court, who have been in the habit of
turning night into day. He has also
abolished the absurd etiquette of tho Span
ih court, of which so many ridiculous
stories used to be told. The King refuses
t > allow his royal fingers to be kissed, and
i ! iakes hands like any plebeian. A cor
respondent writes of him :
"Ho walks about the streets without an
escort, visits tho poor, and makes pur
chases in the shops. The King contribu
ted $5,000 for the poor of Madrid, and an
equal amount for the needy members of the
citizen militia. Having ascertained that
tha pay of the public school teachers was
neveral months in arrears, the King has
refused to draw on the treasury for his
own until the claims of the teachers are
satisfied. Ho also expressed his intention
to grant a Eenoral amnesty for political
offences, but the constitution takes this
power away from him."
This boy, for he is little else, is doing
much to disarm the hostility and pride of
the Spanish people, and, it is said, educate
them up to the republic.

A Scotch paper mentions that one of tho
largest importers of apples at Port Huron,
Michigan, has been iv Liverpool for somo

after having contracted for the delivery in
Liverpool of 10,000 barrels of tho best
Michigan apples. It is said he will clear
about five shillings sterling on each barrel.
Ono siugular fact in connection v.ith this I
new addition to the commerce of Liver

Now York, but now of this city. The bride
wore a beautiful white silk dress, with a trat
three and a half yards long, with whito lace
over dress, set off with magnificent diamonds
a present from tho mother of Ihe groom. Th
groom was tastefully and becomingly altlrei
ia full evening dress.
There were no bridesmaids or bridesgrootns

down the centre aisle accompanied by thei
relatives. At this juncture the organ" etrucl

begun which united two loving hearts forever
The oflieiaticg clergyman, it was noticed, uset

Decidedly this was the most "distingue afl'ai
of the kind that has taken place at this church
for a long time.

we noticed among the many present, a nephew
of Sir Isaac Wilson, of London, the wife an(
nephew of United States Senator Shoemaker
Judje Joseph Christian of the Supreme Court
of Virginia, Dr. George W. Ross, or Rich

Tho ceremony over the bridal party, amid
tbe congratulations of friends, left the church I
to spend Iheir honeymoon and receive their
friendii at the Grand Central Hotel in New
York, where parlors have already been en

couple. Hope seemed to have painted upon
the face of the bride tbe brightest flowers of
sweet anticipation, and the brow of the groom
bore the proud consciousness of a victory and a
prize • won in the wars of Cupid without a
single scar. May their pathway through life I
bespread with flowers without a thorn, and I
may they in reality prove to be

Increase of Manufactures. —Oa all sides
we hear of hard times and a great scarcity of
money, which, however, does not seem to pre

case in the tobacco trade. Within a few weeks I

GEORGE CIIAHOOI* AMD JOHNSON
OPINION OP THK COURT, OP APPKAL3 ON
THE MOTION FOB NEW TRIAL..
New Trials Ordered In Both Cases,
Upon the opening of the Court of Appeals
at 11 o'clock this morning, there was a very
large number of persons in attendance, drawn
thither by the announcement in tho morning
papers of tho fact that the opinions of the
court in the cases of George Cbafaoon, Esq.,
and Johnson H. Sands, Esq., would be deliv
ered. Immediately after the reading; of the
minutes by the cloik, bis Honor, Judge Mon
cure, President of the court, proceeded to de.
liver the opinion of a majority of its members
on the firtt bill of exceptions, in tho case of
Obaboon, to the effect that the Court of Hus
tings did not err in refusing to remand tho ac
cused before a justice of the peace for a pre
Judge Staples delivered a dissenting opinion,
taking the ground that tho accused was, under
the plain construction of the law, entitled to be
taken before a justice of the peace on a war
rant, there to be preliminarily examined be
fore being sent on for indictment. In this
view ot the law, Judge Staples was sustained
by Judge Christian. Judge Anderson deliver- -
SO an opinion sustaining the views taken by
Tho court being equally divided on this
point, the action of the Hustings court in refu
sing to summon the accused before a magistrate
for a preliminary examination is sustained.
Judge Moncure then delivered the unani
mous opinion of the court on the remaining
points embraced in tho bills of exceptions, in
which the ruling of the court below was sus
tained, except in that it erred in refusing the
mulion to quash the ventre facia*. The court
"The court is further of opinion that tho
Hustings court erred in overruling the motion
of the accused to qua3h the ventre facias,
beeauso the same is not in conformity to law,
and for erors upon the face thereof."
Tbe epic-ion concludes as follows :
" Wherefore, for the error of the said Court
of Hustings in overruling tbe motion of the
accused to quash the veil ire facias as aforesaid,
it socmeth to tho court hero that the judgment
aforesaid is erroneous. Therefore, it is con
sidered that the same be reversed and annulled ;
and it is ordered that the verdint rendered by
the jury be set asiae, and that the case be re"
mandud to the said Court of Hustings, with
directions to proceed in tho manner prescribod
by law to cause another jury, duly qualified,
to come and to say whether the said George
Chahoon be guilty," &o.
In the case of"Johnson H. Hinds, all the
rulings of the court below wero sustained save
the one in relation to the centre facias. A
similar order to the above, was then entered
by the court ordering the case to tho court be
low for a rehearing,

ought to pay from having gotten the goods for
the other parties. The difference of opinion on
this subject cost the parlies $3.

put to, the establishment will be one of the
neatest and best in the city.
