The Chicago lHipublican gives the particu

nights ago. I says :
"The- train was moving atfull speed,
when suddenly a kerosene lamp in the rear

frinhtful rapidity seized the bedding and

LANDLoRns AND TENANTs, As ArFROTRr
BJY GENMUAL CANDY'S ORDR.-The Legis.
lature of South Carolina, in 18o, passed an
Act, whorover tenancies were at will, cm
powering any magistrate to eject the tenunt
upon ten days' notice, unless it could bc
shown that the tenancy was either for years
or under a written lease.
In these latter cases the old remedy was
retained, which was upon the determination
of tho lease, or where there was an express
forfeituro for the non-payment of rent, by
tho verdict, of magistrates and freeholders,
upon a regular trial.
General Canby, however, by a recent or
iler, has extended the suinmary process of
ejectment. provided for in the Act of 1860,
to all cases of tenancy, whether verbal or
written at will, for a term of years, where
the tenant fails punctually to pay the rent.
The question yesterday was raised before
Judge Moses, whether General Canby's
arder applied to cases arising before the or
Judge Moses, while holding that Gonoral
Canby's order is not retroactive, has, how
wver, directed the ten days' notice to be
given as of this day, and resered his do
'isionl until causo is (liten shown reaponsivo
o this tiol ice. The cause is as follows:
Some months since, Magistrate Kana

'eni d'ys' notice, under the A3t, was given
>y Mr. Kanapaux, but Mr. llarris 0'.icd
iis jurisdiction in such cases, his tenancy
being for a term and not at will, as conto -
lated by the Act. Mr. ianapaux, deeming
he causes insuffioient, ordered thil sheriff
,o proceed. The sherif was notified that if
to acted he would have to do so at his peril.
cltion inl the mattor was thereby delayed,
md in th meanwhile, an order was issued
)y Generil Canby, making the Act of 1811t
kpplicablo to all tenancies. On this, the
ilheriff was again about to proceed, when a
uggestiou in prohiuitiou, was filed in the
'ourt of Common Pleas, reciting the facts
a the case, and praying that a writ of pro
iibition should be directed to the sheriff,
uommanding him to delay all proceedings,
tpon the ground that the order making the
tatute generally applicable was not retro
clivo, ,and that ton days' notice should be
;iven before the proceedings of ejeciment
an be had.
After argument by Mr. Asher D. Cohen
or the relator, and Messrs. Magrath &

he order was not retroactive, and that the

E ENT.-ThO action of the Ohio Legislature
n withdrawing its assent previously given
o the fourteenth amendment of the Consti

Lue-stion for tho consideration and decision

longress to-day by Mr. Ekgleston, who, in
>resenting them, said it was an unpleasant
luty that he had to perform.
This is the first case of retroactive legis
ation of this particular character in this
ountry, and hence the ouhjeot was referred
o the Judiciary Committee, with instruo
ion to inquire into the legality of the ac
ion of the State Legislature. Another
mportant vuiestion involved Is, whether the
?resident. can scnd back to a State tlie
ecord of its action ratifying a constitution
