OPINION OF THE REOIBTRAB.
The registrar agrees with the attorney for tho as?
signee that the proeeeds of sale of tho property
should be first applied to the payment or the fees,
. costs and expen<es in bankruptcy, and that the bal?
ance, If any, rematning in their band i be applied to
Under Srction28 of the Bankrupt r.ct (Rice's Man?
ual, p. 66), it is provided that 'in th j order of a di?
vidend * * * ? . * tue follow?
ing claims shall bo entitled to priority," Icc. "First
Ihe fees, co-ts and expenses of suits, and the several
proceedings in bankruptcy."
In tho 47th section (Rice's Manual, p. 67.) after
( providing a schedule of tees tor the different officers,
the act sujet ' Such fees shall have priority of pty
meut over all oth'r claims, out of the estate ot' the
? bankrupt, *?**?? and if there aro not suffi?
cient assets for the payment of tho fees, tho perron
upon whose petiuon the warrant isfuos shall pay the
. BS me."
- ' And in the next patograph tho act farther says:
. "Bet?re any dividends is declared, the ostia ni es
shall pay out of the estate of tho m sssong -r the lot
lowing tites." (Rice's Manual, p. 87.)
' From the clauses cf the act above referred to, two
propotitioLS seem necessarily to follow:
First That the fees, c SIB and expenses have
priority of payment over all other claims against the
- ' Sec?n a ly That tho bankrupt is liable to pay no
fees or expenses of his bankruptcy beyond his depo
: sit fee, provided he bas ao estate ? inch comes to the
hands ol thc assignee salli nent for the payment of
In confirmation of the second proposition you will
- find an opinion in tho Bankiupt Court Report ip. 48;
. - in these words: "The bankrupt may apply to the as?
signee io pay trom assets in his hands any sums ho
may have advanced, or procured to be advance 1 to
the mar h i i as his tees, and tho assign' e may charge
the sam i among bis disbursements, to be paid out of
. 'TheJustice and equity of this ruling is obvicus,
from the fact ihat und?r Rulo 29 of General Orders
(Rice's Manual, p. 117) it is provided, "lhat the fees
of the registrar, marsh"! and clerk shall be paid, or |
secured, in all eases, bclore they shall oe compelled
to perform the duties required of them by the par?
ties requiring such services."
Thus it would appear that if the deposit fo: is not
., - sufficient to poy all tho costs, sud any of the officers
refuse to perform t e Uuiies required of them until
their fees are paid or secured, and tho bankrupt
should pay or secure the fees, he is enutled to bave
the same refunded by his assignee, out of ais estate.
If a creditor, holding a lien against tho bankrupt's
estate, is entitled to the whole of rhe proceeds of the
sale of the bankrupt's esta.e, bound by his lien, then
he would b? also entitled to have the personal estate
"Of tho bankrupt, which is danlo tobe set c ff to him,
sold for the same purpose. But Congress has under?
taken, as I think they had the rigl t to do, to cxonipt
for the benefit ol the bausrupt "household and kitch?
en furniture," and "other articles and necessaries"
to the value of i5J0. If a creditor holding a lien has
the right to nave the proceeds of the sale of real es?
tate applied to the payment of bis hen, to tho ex
chul?n of the fees and exp.-nses of bankruptcv, then
he would have an equal right to have the whole of
the personal estate sold for the samo purpose, there?
by entirely depriving the bankrupt irom auy of the
property, exempted under the humane provisions cf
the Bankrupt act except tho mero pittance allowed
under tho exemption law of thc State.
In the case of McKit trick, from Abbeville, S.
McGowan, Esq. attorney for the petitioner, your
Houor held that tho sheriff had no right to levy and
?ell the personal esUte ol the bankrupt, which might
be set off to him under the Bankrupt act and en?
joined him, as I thin,, you had thc ri .ht to do from
selling -nv property which I would certify ?os ex?
empt und-r ho Bankrupt act. Aud in that case, my
impression is, the levy was made bet?re the tiling of
the petition in bankruptcy.
In this car:? no levy wa? made before the filing of
the bankrupt petition. But I regard that as a matter
Of no consequence; for no creditor whose debt ls
provable in bankruptcy h s any right to intermed?
dle with tho bankrupt's estate, after the filing of the
petition, without the leave of the District Court
Upon the filing of the petition, all proceedings
against the bankiupt in St te Courts must stop statu
quo, the District Court having exclusive original ju?
risdiction over the bankrupt, his estate, and his
Upon this point I refer your Honor to the le i rued
decision of Judge Erskine, of the Northern District
. of Georgia, ie orted in the "Liw T mes Bankrupt?
cy Reports," (paragraph 17 and 18,) In Re. Elijah K.
Winn. With that opiuion I fully concur.
I nm thc. ci ore of th? opiuiou that tho assignees
should first pay the costs and expenses of bankrupt?
cy, and the b-lance to the credi or ho'diug a lieu in
this case, and FO respectfully recommend.

XS THE MATTES OF AB.VEE HAUBBIOHT, A 3AXERUPT.
Di this case tho schedules of ti e bankrupt showed
that he had on Interest in certain parcels of real
estate and m small personalty. Thc personalty was
set off to the bankrupt uuder th- provision* of the
fourteenth Section of the act. The real estate was
bound bv the lieu of a judgment entered in the State
Court for some seventy-five ($75) dollars, which had
also been duly prjven In bankruptcy. This real
estate under on order of this i-ourt had been sold by
the assigneo ine from all ineumbronccs, and
brought at the salo eighty (I8-IOO1 dollars. Ibero
are no other tunas in the hands of tho assignee.
The creditor holding the judsment claims that
the proceeds of the sale of the realty, bouud by his
lien, shou d*be applied to the extiuuutshment of his
lien, after paying the special costs incurred ia
The assignee contends that before thc proceeds of
sole can be applied to the icn all thc co.-ts incurred
In the whole pr ceedings in lankaiptcy mu-t bo
^lald out of them. Ihe point was sui milted to Mr.
Registrar Cia?son. ?ho decided it iu tavorol the as- |
sign?e and has certified his opinion, with thc rc. SOLS
lor it to this court
Theregi-trar relies upon the 28th and 47th Sec?
tion? of the Bankrupt act.
The 47th Section, alter providing a schedule of
fees for ti e eeveial offictrs of the court, says:
"?such fces8hall have priority ol' pu ment over all
other clfcinis out of the estate ?r*hi bankrupt. AuO
I il there are not suffic ent assets for thc payment of
these Ieee, the person upon whose petition the war?
rant issues shall pay tbeeame."
"* What is meant by the expression " estate of the I
bankrupt?" Evidently such pro; erty and rights ot j
property of the bankrupt as the Bankrupt act vests
in the assignee. , .. . .
The assignee can take nothing more than thc bank?
rupt himself had in anycase, except the case of a
fraudulent conveyance hythe bankrupt The act
does nor divest lieus acquired and consummated.be
fore the adjudication in bankruptcy. When the act,
therefore, speaks ot the estate or the bankrupt in the
hands of the ossignco. it m :a ? such CBtate *1th all
the ineumbronccs twisting upon it at the time of
the bankruptcy. In other words, tho netvilueof
the property after thc liens upon it are satisfied.
Thia will apr? ar upon examining thu 20th section ot
The first clause of this section provides that in all
cases of mutual account tbe account shall be stated,
and O'JC debt set off against the other, and thc tal
anco on'y allowed, or bud. '>be second clau-e pro?
vides that whs-j a creditor ha^ a mortgage or a pledge
of real or personal property of tba bankrupt, or a
lien ihereuu tor sccuriug-aynwnr of a: debt ewing
io bim he t-ha'.i be Si!ruf: ed as a creditor only for
tbcbalauce ot the debt after deducting the value of
such property, to bc ascertained by agreement be
tafeen him and ihe assigne \ or by a salo.
The third clause authoiizes thc creditor in su h
a case to release or convey to the ass'gn-e his claim
up n such property, and then to prove tor thc whole
Ihe fourth clause provides that if tho valua of thc
property exceed the debt, the assignee may role ise
to tho creditor thc bankrupt's rig?tt of redemption
therein, onrecemne; such ex -ess. or he may so.l the
property subject to ihe elai'u of the creditor. No
comment is neve -sary. It is clear that tho estate of
the lankrupi in prop-rtv, bouud by \ lien, is in tho
excess of the value of the property alter satisfaction
o: the lien, and tint this is ail the act conveys to his
assignee. That this 17th section, in providing for
the pavment of the toes out of the "estate of the
bankrupt," in it . tenu* lorbids tho idea ol tho pay?
ment ot thc f-es our of that portion ot the properly
bound by liens, Wairo is not in excels of ihe lien.
Inasmuch as the lien creditor 'eeiiS and enjoys the
aid ot this court in cuforciug an 1 realizing his lien,
he is bour.d to poy the eosis incurred in ubtaiuing
this aid. But ar th regard to the c*. "ts of general ad?
ministration in vhlrh ho has no ..one.rn, audie
which he can have no int- re-1 until hts lien is either
s itiefled or realized, it would bo inequitable to re?
quire him to bea' tho burden of them.
Upon examining the 25th section of the act, on
which thc registrar also i Odes, it will be seen that it
mak s provision for thcpavnvmt of ccrraiu prefer?
red debts when adivihnd is declared.
It will bc observed that a dividend is paid only to
general creditors, and that no creditor ho ding a Ucu
?.hall share in it, except for the overplus which may
remain after crediting tue debt with tue fa 1 value of
the property bound by the lien, or b.\ the surrcuder
and release cf his lien altogether. (Section 2 ).)
It will also be Observed that tho 28th section eivo=
preference, not only to the fees, costs aud expenses
Ot suit, but also to four other classes ol creditors,
such as-deb's to the United .-tates, debts to the
State, wages of operatives an'! debts due to the per?
rons ?ho, by thc laws ol thc United States, arc enti?
tled to priority or i reference. 1 he debt? due to the
Unite* rotates arc to be paid next after the costs. And
yet it has beeu decided by a aral's of judiciul dc
ci-ions that a ccbt due to the Uuited states ia not
in thc rature ot a lien, nor has a debt due the gov?
ernment a preference over tho claim ot a lien credi?
tor. (U. s. vs. Ho e. 3 Cr. 73 1st Paters' U. 8.
Condensed Bep" 4 8; Beastou vs. Farmors' Bank of
Delaware, 12 Peters, 1U2; Phillips vs. Scatterpo il, 1
Gilpin, 1; U. S. vs. Sheriff of Cnarieston, lice's Ad?
miralty, 196.) s-o that, as this i-ection puts in the
same category of preierred debts, the costs, kc, and
debts due to the United States, it must b i undi r
stood to > can such a preference as is not incousis
tent with the vested right ol a 1 en. Indeed, it can
hatdly be maint lined that a creditor hoi ling alien
which is recognized by thi-i court should bu post?
poned to all ol Diese five clashes of creditors, o- will
oe compelled to m-et these debts of thc bankrupt
out of property pledged to him.
Ibo registiar seems to app-ehend that if the lien
creditor can insist upon his lieu to the exclusion of
thc general costs, he ran also insist upon it os against
tbe personalty set off to the banki upt. But there is
no ground for such apprehension. Thc Bankrupt
act takes hold of and administers all tho property
and rights of property of the nankrupt. When it
bas s?-uraco jurisdiction, it exorcises ont-ol over
all persons and property connected with the bank?
rupt. It invites a-id compels tue discovery and sur?
render, not only of visible property bound by lieus,
but, br all rights, interests and equities. In return'
for this trank and full discovery, it secures the bank?
rupt certain parts of his estate, which are act off to

American Claimants to English Estates,
Hon. J. P. Benjamin, formerly of Louisiana,
but now rosiding in London, and a member of
tho English bar, has written a loiter to tho
New Oilcans Times, with a view t exposing a
boheme of swindling now extensively prac?
ticed in this country, by which persons arc in?
duced to advance moaoy for tho proseculion
ot claims against English estates, represented
as unclaimed and awaiting th J appearance of
heirs residing in America. Ur. Benjamin
?tales that every instanco whic'i has come to
bia knowledge, ' thc statements are ralas? and
evidently made tor tho purpose of defrauding;
parties out of sums, lan;e or small, under pre?
texts of paying tho costs of records, copies,
ic, said to bc necessary for the prosecution
of the protended claim." Thc letter concludes
as follows :
Tho usual mode of proceeding adopted is to
propose to undertake the busiries free of ex?
pense, the proposer to receive only a share of
what may b? rooovered. This seems so rea?
sonable that iu most oases tbe dupe readily
swallows tho bato. A short time afterwards
be is informed that all inquiries and researches
have resulted favorably, and that nothing is
wanted to insure success except the cost of a
few copies of records and other napers, and
that the proposer having already incurred
great oxp-'iise in conducting tho necessary in?
quiries and researches, is loft, without resources
at the veiy moment when a few pounds would
suffice to secure tho fruits of his labor and ex?
penditure. Many aro tho victims from whom
sums varying from twenty to twenty-tivo hun?
dred pounds, have been thus extracted, aud
tbe n amber of persons oniaged in this system
must be very great, and tbe sums received by
them very c insidcraole, if at all in proportion
to tho number of letters received hore ou tbe
subject. Many thousands of pounds arc kuowu
to have been expend? d by those who could ill
afford to bear tho loss in tho pursuit of the
gieat Jennings estate; and some of those who L
liavo spent money in tins way have actually
boen deluded into writing to mc their convic?
tion that they were ontitlcd lo dislodge thc
present Duke of atatlborousb from Blenheim
Castle, by virtue of their descetit from thc
famous Duchess Sarah Jennings.
Most of tho persons who aro duped aro igno?
rant on two points which, in nearly every in?
stance, would satisfy them at once of the utter
folly of the hopes they indulge. The first is
that an alien cannot bc an heir in England
when there is no will, aud that be cannot take
real estate even if left to bim by will. Tho sec?
ond is that, in England, estates devolves upon
tbe oldest sou alone, and on his eldest son in
succession, and aro not divided in shares
amone all the children, as in Louisiana and
other States. Yet nothing is moro common
than tor persons to assert hcirship to the sup?
posed abares, ol younger brothers and sisters,
or to claim, as natives of Hie Unitod State?,
hcirship to Englishmen who had left no wills.
In the hope that this exposure will bo of
some USP to mv fellow-citizens, iu whose wei-''
faro I retain the deepest interest, and may pro?
tect them to some ex tem from thc sharpcis
who arc plundering them, I remain, very res?
pectfully, your obedient servant,

A SNOW BLOCKADE OF TUE PACIFIC RAILROAD.
Thc St. Louis Evening Dispatch publishes an
account of the trials and suflterinsa of a party
of gentlemen who recently t ame over the
Union Pacific Railroad. 1 he account is given
by one ol the party, which included many
prominent gentlemen ot California, New York
and ulhct Eastern States. He says they were
detained ten days at a railway station, nud
could not induce the rai i way officials to send a
train out until they held an indignation meet?
ing and telegraphed to the llailroad Committee
jf Washington about thc treatment ilioy wore
receiving. VYben tliev did start they were
compelled to shovel snow ut different pffiuts, I
ami were very badlv fed. At ono point they
shovelled through a snowdrift one thousand
feet long. 'When they had thc track clear tho ?
engineer had duly steam enough to carry them
into tho depth of. a ..nfl. In consequence of
too much whiskey drank by the ofticeis of thc
trains they were stuck strain. After remain?
ing two days in this condition, about fifty per?
sons started on foot for Laramie-ninety "miles
distant-reaching there in four days, after
much sufferm?. Front Laramio they caine
through lo Omaha without detention" They
complain bitterly of tbe treatment they re?
ceived at tb ? hands of the railway officials,
whom they repeatedly charge with making
mistatement3 to them, and who would enter- 1
tain no proposition to refund tho extra ex- 1
penses incurred by the passengers. 1 bey also
sav that exorbitant prices were charged thom
for provisions. Over iwo hundred persons
weic on thc train when it was left in the snow. ?

It is so lonely here with the children asleep 1 Once
he loved to stay with mr, but now, alas! Twelve

What charms can he find in that foul-scented
room, by that dusty table, cutting and dealing those
dusty cards, filling himself with poison, tainting his
breath, ruining his mind, undermining his constltu
lion, planting seeds of disease, squandering his
mency, clouded with smoke, tired with excitement.
Is tb s happiness ? is this life ? Is !his cur mission?
Oh I I am so tired, do coxe home.
This delicious cordial and fine tonic is now hailed
by thousands as the great health giver and re?
storer. Resolve to buy a bottle, and don't sleep on
it. Be wise in time. So'd by all druggists.

Are they who mind their own business. Find a hap?
py man or woman, and th: affairs of another trouble
them but a little. It is none of your business if the
minister kisses ono of the sisters, or one of thc sis?
ters thus s ilutes the minister. It cannot effect you
when a mau you know calls on a girl you don't know,
or one you do. What if there is kissing behind the
door, in tuonela, and wben the night ls dark at tho
vestibule of the '.hurch, or even ever the gate. Would
you not do thc same thing If tho chance was offered ?
A WINE GLASS FULL
Of Plantation Bitters, taken three times a day, before

For ladies it is aa elegant and gentle atimulant, just

JAMES HA ns n, ESQ.,
No. 153 Wc6t First-street, New York, says he
has three children. The first two are weak and
puny, his wile having been unable to nurse or
attend Ihcm; but she has taken Plantation Bit?
ters for tho last ten years, and has a child now 18
months old. which she has nursed and re-ire J ber
self, and both aro heaity uud well. Plantation Bit?
turs is invaluable to mothers.
VA LTE ll, mt BOY,
Hore comes a mun who was once rich. He had
iriendB, and money, and a loving family, and posi?
tion, and influcne \ and self-respeot, and integrity,
aud a future of usefulness before hun. But, my
boy, he dou't look like it now. He was elected to an
important office. He forgot the lessons his good
mother (aught him, and was asked by designing
politicians to sell his vote to sporty of swindlers; he
could not for thc lifo of him giva articulation to that
little word, and so he Jell.
HOW OFTEN DO WE HEAR TUB OOMPCAINT,
From mother and fr: her, that thc son or daughter is
not well; that they have no appetite; that they feel
languid; that tho head aches all thc time; that they
are growing thin and feeble, and that they have no
life nor energy lolt. And th? questions arc Often
asked, What shall I do fer. them ? What shall I give
them? Our answer is, let thom try Plantation Bit?
ters moderately, three bines a day, and our word
for it they will recover.
AND HERE VALTER, IS A YOUNG MAN,
Just like you and us, my boy. He has wit, sense,
education, intelligence, friends, ambition, and is
loved. He has a knowledge of the world, acquired
by mixing with its people Be has ambition and
the same field in which lo win honor, fame and dis?
tinction, as had Franklin, Fulton, Morse, and a host
of others. He is naturally snarl, but, Yaller, my
boy, as he meets us do you soe the excess of mois?
ture in his eye, the little puffy ridge under lt the
gradual turning of tho beautilul coruorp of the
mouth, his mother so loved to kiss. Thone, my boy,

an active nutriment for the development and maturity of the fruitage. The SulpuuriovAcid
which it contains, by chemical affinity with the elements of most soils, contribute to tts Fer?
