Tho Court opened at ;!(.voa o'clock Satuni
morning, the Chief Jastico a ad bis Hoi
Judge Bryan on the beach.
On motion of Hon. D. T. Corbin, Unit
Btatos Distiict Attorney, Mr. Henry Baldw
a practitioner rn tho United States Coarta 1
Massachusetts, was permitted to practice
tho United States Courts for South Carolina
The case of the Southwestern Railroad Ba
et al. TS. Edwin Parsons, E. P. S:ott et al., ?
EdwardMcCrady, Esq., was hoard fort
plaintiff. This ia a snit in equity. The L
filed prays for an injunction against Ed?
Parsons, who is suing the bank for over *30,0(
Langston, who is suing for over $15,000, a:
others, who are suing for varions amounts,
restrain them from prosecuting their snits
judgment. It prays also the advice of t
court to the directors in respect to the Uah
itv of the bank for $350,090 lent to the Conic
erato States in notes of the bank, to recov
which is in part the objeot of the suits.
The bill states that the directors bare tl
power to call in additional instalments of cai
tal stock, which will be sufficient to pay off t!
debts of the bank and enable the directors
go on with its bus me33; bat that they aro et
barr aaa ed, not knowing for what amount
debt evidenced by the notes in circulation ai
now in snit the bank is really liable. The a
of the court is, therefore, sought to aacerta
the tiue amount of the debts, and in the tn 1
time to restrain the suits against tho bani
Chief Justice Chase, at the conclusion of ai
McCrady's argument, on Saturday, deliren
the opinion of the coui t upon the motion f
injunction as follows :
Thcro is not auch difficulty in tho case :
seems to require protracted considerate
The object of the bill is two-fold : First, to 0
! tain an injunction to restrain the cr?dito
! of tho bank from suing it in C3nrts of la'
Second, to induce this court to assume jori
diction of the affairs of the baok and advil
the directors in the administration of its btu
It is quite trae, as has been urged by coui
sel, that courts of equity proced upon a syste:
of rules founded in fundamental principle
Theeo roles are quite flexible in their chara
ter and capable of almost indefinable adapti
rion to the infinite variety of haman concern
But on the other hand, there are certain del
nite limitations of equity jurisdiction wbic
courts of equity are as bound to observe t
coarta of law are bound to observe the limit;
.tiona which define the exercise of their jorii
The genera,) beads of jurisdiction in eqoil
embrace, as every one koowa, fraud, miataki
enforcement of contracts and trusta, lt i
ander the Utter head that jurisdiction of ti
case made by the bul must be sought if an;
It ia undoubtedly trae that directors of bani
are trastees; they are trustees for the stool
holders; they are trustees for the crediton
And ander proper circumstances they may t
controlled in the adminiatratlon of their true
by courts of equity. And, undoubtedly, cji
cums tan ces may arise in which directora of
bank, like other trustees, would have a rige
to come into a court of equity for aid an
direction in tue administration of their tras!
r No such circumstance, however, seems t
I exist in the present case. The appiioatlo;
made by the bill appears to ua to be prom a
turo. Ita object ta to prevent a trial by jory i:
an action at law upon the notes; whereas, if
case were otherwise made, of which w
could take juriadicHOD, it would certainly b
proper, if not our duty, to send to the j a ry th
main question of fact opon which the iiabilit;
of the bank ia supposed to depend, riz
whether the notes in controversy were or wen
not lent to the Confederate Government. Thli
fact is the first thing to be determined, and
it is peculiarly the province of a jury to deter?
It would be going quito bayoud the limita 0!
our jurisdiction as a court of equity to inter?
f?re with the trial of a c?e of this sort at
It is said that a multiplicity of suits U
brought against the bank apon ita notes ; so mt
in this court and some in State courte; bul
this ia not that sort of multiplicity of suitt
which gives jurisdiction to a court of equity
They are all anita on money contracte, and art
all properly brought at law. Those which art
brought in the State courts are obviously be
yond our jurisdiction; and there ia no principle
of whioh we are aware which will sanction ai
interference with tho JO whiob are brought ot
the common law sids ol this court.
It ia urged by the complainant that inasmuch
aa a creditor might file a bill seoking the aid. ot
the court to enforce the disclosure of asseti
and to compel the calling in by the trustees 0;
unpaid capital for the satisfaction of judg?
ment?, so a creditor willing to dieolose all his
assets and resources and to place himself un?
der tba direction of a court ia the administra?
tion of them must be entitled to ita aid and
guidance in auch administration. Bat the
appeal before ua asks something more than
thia. It aska us to determine in advance the
rights of tho bank as against ita creditors. It
ta not a creditor's bal bat a debtor's bill, and
whatever r ghta the creditor . may bare to the
intervention of tho court, it is very olear that
the debtor has no ?ooh right, such as bj set up
by thia bill to that interposition. The prayer
tor injunction mast be denied.
Saturday haring been fixed for the call of the
admiralty appeal docket, the following oases
were heard :
Salaa & Co. ra. schooner Aid; breaoh of
charter party. Porter and Conner and A. G.
Magrath, Esqs., for appellant; Campbell and

In the above cases Mr. Conner and Mr.
Magrath were heard for appellants, and Mr. J.
B. Campbell for appellees. Decision resorved.
The hearing of the case of tho United States
vs. two hundred and fifty hogsheads of sugar,

T?ter CaucratT.-The Savannah papen no?
tices the case of Mr. Caria. Wotfmeyer, of
Charieeton, who, when about to leave for his
home, fell in company with another German,
Damed Charlea Karcher. They took passage on
the City Point, and went on board some bme
before the Bailing of the steamer. Mt. Wolf
meyer laid down and was soon aaleep, when
bia friend Karcher took from bia pocket sixty
two dollars, and also two passenger tickets for
Charleston. He Sold the two tickets to one of
the officers of the steamer, left the boat and
returned to the city. Mr. VTolfmejer soon
awoke, missed his money and went after the
rogue, whom, with the ass is tan co of a detect?
ive, he found. Nearly the whole of the stolen.
money was recovered and restored to its own?
er, who declined to prosecute the thief,

Cathedral Kains Prostrated, ?kc.
Tb? weather on Saturday forenoon waa ex?
tremely warm,'the boat being np to our summer
standard, the thermometer during the hottest
part of the day indicating a temperature of
ninety degree?. Early in the afternoon the
gathering of dark clouds was noticed in the wost,
and the signs which usually indicate the ap?
proach of a thunder squall wore strikingly ap?
parent. TheBo tokens of a coming change in
the weather continued to accumulate and
gather over the city until half-past three P.
H., when a fierce wind from northwest, ac?
companied by rain, suddenly arose, the heavi?
est of the blast lasting hardly ten to fifteen
minutes. That time, however, sufficed for the
gale to do a deal of damage. Fences and light
and exposed buildings were prostrated in every
direction; powerful branches were twisted
from trees that could hare withstood any ordi?
nary blow, and the roofs of quite a number of
buildings were more or less injured.
THE GALE IN THE EA EB OR.
But the moat disastrous and lamentable effect
of the force of the wind was experienced on
the water, where several boats were capsized,
in ono ot which three persons, a mother and
ber two sons, were unfortunately drowned. A
Mr. Donglaes, wife and three children, accom?
panied by two colored boatmen, l?ft the city
shortly before tho blow, in a substantial
sailing boat, called the Malta, bouud for
Bull's Island, where Mr. D. was in the futuro
to be employed as assistant keeper of the
lighthouse. When the boat had reached a
point m tho harbor near Castle Pinckney she
waB struck by an overwhelming gust, foroinsr
the vessel on her broadside, and filling ber with
water. One of the colored boatmen got into
a small craft which was sent from tho United
8tates revonue cutter Racer, and with his
aid Mr. Douglass and one of the children was
picked np, the other boatman also managiug
to keep afloat u nil rescued; but Mrs. Douglass
and her two sons, who were underdeelt, were,
we learn, not Been after the accident, and it is
supposed that they were immediately drowned.
Up to last evening their bodies had not been
recovered. Nothing was saved but a small
box of wearing apparel. The boat was taken
in tow, after the squall, in a sunken con?
dition, and brought to a position off the
battery, by the pilot boat Wild Cat, Captain
Jones. A water-boat was capsized in Ashley
Biver, but was afterwards got into shallow
water off Chisolm's Mill, where she was secured.
There were reports of oth ?r accidents in the
harbor, but they were generally of an unimpor?
tant character, and not attended with disas?
trous features. Teasels arriving from sea since
the squall report having the wind only in the
usual form of an ordinary thunder gust, with?
out any features indicating unusual force.

The dangers, though not of a very ( serious
character, as far as we can hear, were quite
The roof of tho fire-room, attached to Stein
meyer's saw mill, Gadsdeu-street, was taken
off by the rind, Carried entirely over the mill
and landed safely in the middle of the mill
yard-a distance of about seventy feet. A ne?
gro who was in the yard at the time saw it
coming and bad presence of mind enough to
fall flat on the gejound, and thereby escaped
being killed. The shed fell over him, bat lett
space enough for him to crawl from under. All
of the mill hands except two fled, being under
the impression that the boiler bad burst.

A freight car in the yard of the South Ca?

i The roof of Senator Sawyer's residence waa
damaged and a hole made therein.'
In various parla of the city the scuttles on
the tops of houses were lifted and blown
some distance by the gale,

Mesara. Jarvie Barberand Ludovici, who were
on their way, by water, to a place on Cooper

enough to affect a landing in time.

From the aooounts whioh reach na by tele?
graph, the gale must have swept with more or
leas force over a wide extent of country. We
hear of it at Augusta, Savannah, Colombia,
Wilmington and even as far north as Fortress
Monroe. We shall have the details of its effects
to-day or to-morrow.
THE BIOS TIEBOE QUESTION.-"Planter'?
writes to the Georgetown limes, complaining
that the recent action of the rice dealers here
is "a genteel way of dictating that thc price of
rice shall be reduced one fourth of a cent per
pound." ''Heaays: ''Many if not all tho planters
in the district are under obligations to Charles?
ton factors, wiiieh render it necessary that in
all our actions we should keep in view their
iutcrest, and solicit their co-operation, and I
have no doubt wc wilt bo aided in placing our
produco beyond the power of a judge and jury
that duckies the 'commercial community'
should bo bencfitted at the expenso of tho pro?
ducer. How oan thia be accomplishod ? Let
the planters ot Waccamaw, Peedee, Black
River, >orth and South Santee bold a meeting
ia Georgetown, and request their factors to
appoint brokers in Kort hera marketa and ar?
range with our district mills to pound the rice,
and ship direct to our brokera, which can be
done at same rate of freight per tierce as we
now pay from mill to Charleston."
