with consent of all parties, it was ordered that I

ants in these cases upon any of the pleas' in

CTBC?TT CO CHT OF THE UNITED STATES
DISTRICT OF SOUTH CAROLINA - OABOLINE A.
JOHNSON AND JOHN A. JOHNSON, TBUSTLES, VS.
JOHN RICHABD30N, AD3HNIBTBATOB OF HAUY
The only question*raised by the plea in this
case ie one of jurisdiction.
The object of tho billia to obtain against the
the defendant, as administrator of Mary
Richardson, deceased, a decree in favor ot
Caroline A. Johnson for her distributive share
of an estate, which it is alleged has been col?
lected and is held by him, and for the payment
of ? sum of money due from the intestate.
The defendant is a citizen of Georgia, but
derives his authority as administrator irom
the grant of letters of administration, by
the proper court of South Carolina. The
plaintiffs are citizens of South Carolina.
The relief sought is against the defendant
in tho capacity of administrator, and the plea
sets np the fact that the defendant is adminis?
trator nuder the grant of one of tbe States,
and bound by the law of the State to account
aa such for his administration of the estate of
the deceased, in the courts of the State, as a [
bar to the prosecution of any snit against him
rn the courts of the United States.
There has been much controversy and no
little diversity of judgment on the question
thus presented both at the bar and on the
bench, and the decisions are by no means har?
monious. Fortunately, we are spared the labor
of examining the question upon principle, by
the authority of a very recent decision of the
Supreme Court of the United States.
In the case of Payne vs. Hook, .not yet re?
ported, Ann Payne, a citizen of Virginia,
brought her snit m equity in tho Circuit Court
for the District of Missouri, against Ziddock
Hook, a citizen of Missouri, and public ad?
ministrator of the county of the intestate, and
his sureties on his official bond, for her distri?
butive share of the estate. A demurrer was
was filed to the bill, and was sustained by the
Circuit Court, and the bill r.as dismissed.
The case was taken by appeal to the Supreme
It will be seen from this statement that the
?erv question now before us waa then brought
before the Supreme Court. The court upon
fall argument held that the suit was properly
brought, and reversed the decree ot the Cir?
cuit Court. Thia authority ia decisive, and the
plea mont be overruled.
Mr. J. J. Pope, solicitor for complainant,
made the following motion, which was granted:
The plea filed in the above case by the de
dendant, John Richardson, administrator,
having been overruled, it is ordered that the
defendant do file bis answer to the above bill,
on or before the rules day in July next, upon
payment of the costs of this tern.
Alexander McLeod vs. T. C. Calicott. J. B
Campbell, Esq., appeared for plaintiff: D. I.
Corbin, United States District Attorney, for de?
This waa a oas? for trial by the jory, and an
aotion of trover for the recovery of tbirty-nine
balee of cotton, alleged by oounsel for plaintiff
to have been wron g tully taken from the posses?
sion of Dr. A. McLeod, of Marlboro* District,by
Mr. T. 0. Cali co tt, a citizan of New York, and
that the property so taken was wrongfully
converted by defendant to his own use, and
that without probable cause, right- or color of
Counsel for plaintiff introduced testimony to
show that Dr. McLeod raised the cotton, was
subjected after the war to an onerous trial by the
Pro vost Court of Marlboro'District, acquitted,
and the cotton ordered to be released. That
after this, Mr. Calicott, being fully advised of
what had occurred, seized the cotton at the de
pot of the Northeastern Railroad Company,
notwithstanding the factor (Mr.. L. D. Mowry)
wont to him, represented tbe circumstances of
the ease, and asked its release to him, offering
to gire security, to be approved by Mr. Cali?
cott, if he or the Government of the United
States ar toy one represented bj them should
est t bush any just claim to it, Mr. Calicott re'
fained the cotton, and an application was
made to the Secretary of the Treasury at
Washington, and upon a statement of the
facts he ordered its discharge. Counsel for
plaintiff advised their client at the. time not to
comply with the conditions required by the
Secretary of tho Treasury requiring him (Dr.
McLeod) to state there was probable cause for
the seizure of his cotton, and Mr. Calicott re?
quired, in addition to that, a bond to indem?
nify himself against damages, &z.
On the part of the defendant, testimony was
introduced to show that Mr. Calicott waa f pe
dal supervising agent of the Treasury Depart'
ment and received this cotton under the pro?
visions of the aot of Congi ese of the 12th of
March, 1863, relative to captured and abandon?
ed property; that he took it under color of that
act, received it and transmitted it according to
the direction of the Secretary of the Treasury
to Simeon Draper, the proper special agent at
New York, for sale. Testimony was introduc
ed to show that the cotton waa not Dr
McLeod's; that a large portion of it was sold to
the Confederate States Govejnment iu 18C3;
that be had no right to retain it; that be had it
repacked and remarked and forwarded to
Counsel introduced a certified official report
of Mr. Calicott to tho department at Washing?
ton on the subject, which report was required
to be made under the act, and that Mi-. Cult
cott acted in good faith and uuder strict in?
structions of the Treasury Department; also
that the Provost Court had no jurisdiction
over this ootton.
rihe hearing of the testimony occupied tbe
attention of the court up to three o'clock, when
the further hearing of the case was postponed
to ten o'clock this morning.

TBE NEGRO BOND CARES.
Decision of Judge Carpenter- The Valid
Ky of tile Bonds Affirmed.
His Honor Judge Carpenter has given tho
following decision on the qncstion of the valid?
ity of bonds given in.payment of the purchase
of slaves :
JULIET O. ELLIOTT V3. WM. HENEY TBESCOT AND
j m WILLIAM W KA LEY.
This wes gn aotion of debt on bond, given by
defendantsto plaintiff on taft?-day of-,
A. D. 1857, in Ibo penal sum of twenty-eight
L thousand* and "eighty ($28 080) dollars. The
d?fendants pleaded seven pleas. The first was
the general issue of non cst factum, and the
last pleaded paymeot. Some of the other
pjcas set up as a defence that the bond was se?
cured by a mortgage of slaves, whereby the
slaves bad been conveyed to the plaintiff by
the defendant Tresoot, with a defeasance in
case of payment.
That the defendant had failed to pey accord?
ing to the condition of the bond. That there?
upon the property in the slaves vested abso?
lutely in the plaintiff and the bond was dis?
charged. The other pleas set up the emanci?
pation of the slaves by the Convention of 1865.
To thc first and last plea tho plaintiff put in
a similitur. and issue was joined thereon. To
all the other pleas be made a profert of the
mortgage and put in a general- demurrer to
each; the defendant joined in demurrer. The
pleadings and the statements at the bar ad?
mitted that the consideration of the bonds
sued on was the purchase of slaves.
A preliminary motion was made to strike the
case from tho docket, under the 34th Section
or the 4tb Article of tbe Constitution of this
State, adopted in March, 1868, which is in these
"SECTTOV 34. All contracts, whether under
seal or not, the consideration of which were
for the purchase of slaves, are hereby declared
null aud void and of no effect; and no suit,
cither at law or equity, shall be commenced or
prosecuted, for the enforcement of such con?
tracts, and all proceedings to enforce satisfac?
tion or payment on judgments or decrees ren?
dered, recorded, enrolled or entered upon snob
contracts, in any court of this State, are here?
by prohibited, and nil orders heretofore made
in this State in relation to such contracts,
whereby property is held subject to decision
as to the validity of such contracts, are also
hereby declared null and void and of no ef?
1 nm of the opinion that this section of the
Constitution of this State is in conflict with
the 10th Section, 1st Article of tho Constitu?
tion of tbe United S:afes, in that it impairs the
obligation of contracts, and that it is therefore
null and void.
The motion is refus;-J,
After full consideration of the points raised
by the demurrer, I am of the opinion that the
pleas prosent an insufficient defence to the
action on the bond, and upon these pleas order
the postea to be delivered to tbe pl ?ntiff.
The attorneys in the cause having filed their
consent in writing that the issue of fact be
tried and determined by the court without th 3
intervention of a jury, I determine that the de?
fendant did make, execute and deliver to the
plaintiff the bond set forth in the pleadings,
that no part thereof has been paid, and that
upon the first and last pleas the plaintiff is en?
titled to enter judgment on the penalty of the
said bond. And it is so ordered.

Da. JAKES MOULTRIE_Dr. James Moultrie,
the last scion of an illustrious race, breathed
his last on Saturday morning, the 29th instant.
He was the son of Dr. Alexander Moultrie,
and grandson of General Moultrie, of Revolu?
tionary renown. He was bora in Charleston,
and at the time of his death was in bis 77th
year. When still quite young, he was sent to
a school in England; bat after his return in
early manhood, he studied medicine in this
oity in the office of Drs. Samuel Wilson and
Alexander Btrroo; and our own college not
then being in operation, he proceeded to Phil?
adelphia, where he graduated. He returned
to Charleston, and here practiced his profes?
sion with the most flattering success. For
many years he was physician to the Marine
Hospital, and availed himself of that opportu?
nity to give clinical lectures to the many stu?
dents who followed him through the wards.
About the year 1833 he was elected Profes?
sor of Physiology in the Medical College
ot this city, which position he occupied and
adorned till 1836, when he resigned his chair
because of the infirmities of advancing age.
He was elected President of the American Med?
ical Assooiat;on, at its meeting in this city.
His contributions to science were numerous;
many of them published in the journals of the
day. His principal labors, however, scientific
and literary, wore given for the advancement
of tho interests of the institution, of the facul?
ty of which he wai a distinguished member.
He was do.-ply attached to the Medical College
of South Carolina, and never felt more at boma
than when lecluring to lita classes on tho niys
ti-ries ot physiology. He was many years in
advance of rome ot the foremost expounders
of this branch of m.'dical science, and appear?
ed to have a singularly cloar intuition in re?
gard to the correlation of the sciences, and
the oneness of dosiga pervading Nature in all
Dr. Moultno was a thorough scholar; a man
of more than ordinary natural endowments,
and ot rare cultivation. He ceased to study
and learn, only when be ceased to live. We
have met few savais in this country wbo were
more entitled to that distinguished appellation.
He walked no beaten track in his lectures. He
searched and proved everything for himself,
and to this end shunned no labor, mastering
Comparative Anatomy and Natural History,
together with Mechanics, and every other
science that promised, proximately or remote?
ly, to shed light upon his chosen branch.
Several of his friends had been for years urg?
ing him to commit his peculiar views on many
of these subjects to paper, and at the time of
bis death be was, we believe, engaged in doing
Dr. Moultrie was a finished gentleman as
Y?eli as a finished scholar-of unblemished
character, gifted with inscrutable grace of
manner and expression-beloved and honored
by every one. His remains were interred yes?

Dear Sir-Your note inviting me to attend

tery the graves of the brave men who fell in
defence of the Union during the recent civil
war, only reached me this morning.
I am very sorry that I cannot be with yon
