The court opened at 10 o'clock jester
morning, Chief Justice Chase and Judge Br.
on the beech.
The juror a answered to their names.
In the case of A. MuLsod vs. T. C. Calice
which waa tried last Saturday, and which 1
excited muoh interest, che Chief Justice cha
ed the jury as folio wa :
OevuVemen of the Jury-The Diftrioi
toruey has asked for various instruotio
which the court will ci edi ne to give; uot tl
we doubt the general correctness of most
the legal propositions contained in them, 1
we prefer to give you what we conceive to
the law of this case in our own language, c
bodying the instructions ask od, so fax aa
think the ja correct in what we say.
Thia ia an action of trespass brought
Alexander McLeod against T. C. Caiicott. 1
plaintiff alleges that thirty-nine bales of c
ton, belonging to him, were wrongfully tak

and in accordance with law. Tbe plaintiff i
plies, denying the truth of thia averment, a
insisting that in what Calicott did, he did r
act as agent, but wrongfully and withe

The pleadings present the issue which y <
are to try. First. Did this cotton belong

second, was the d?fendant justified in what

Thal the cotton belonged to tho plaint]
unless his title bad been diverted by captui
seems not to be questioned. The sec sud qa(
tion alone, therefore, is important.
. Under several acts of Congress, during tl
late war. Supervising Agents of the Treasu
Department were appointed in the several i
sursent States, and charged with certain sr
cine duties. Among these dirties was that
receiving from the military officers of the Ul
led States all property captured by them, wi
instructions to turn it over to the proper a
chorines of the United States for Bale and i
account. In respect to oitizsns who had mai
tained a loyal adhesion to the Government
the United States, it waa provided by law tb
thia property or proceeds should bs return
to them upon mating the necessary proofs
the Court of Claims at any time within t\
i yeaia from the.close of the rebellion. It is i
leged, and not denied, that Calicott was Bup*
vising agent, and bad this general autborii
It waa bia duty to receive ?orn the milita
officers, and from private soldiers, all proper
captured by the forcea of the United Stat
during tbe recent war, within his agency.
If this case depended on this general authc
ity, the only question to be determined won
be whether the cotton in question was captur
property. But there is something more
this case. These supervising agents were a
pointed by the Secretary of the Treasury, u
der regulations, approved by th e President
the United States, and were subj ec r, in all r
speota, to his direction and control; and tl
general regulations established had relatif
only to a state of war.
Now, actual hostilities between the insu
gent States and the United States termin?t*
practically in May, 1865. Ia the 8 ti te of Soul
Carolina a provisional government waa o
ganized under a proclamation of the Presidei
m June or Joly of that year; and tbe Seor
tary of the Treasury having reference to th
changed condition of affairs, on the 27th i
June, 1865, addressed a circular to those Tra
aury agents in which he prescribed a rule f<
their government in the new state jf thing
(The Obie. Justice here read the fourth sei
tion of the circular. ) Thia section provide
that officers "charged with the duty cf recei
ing and coliectinz, or having in their posse;
mon or under their control, captured, abai
doned, or confiscable 'personal property, wi
aup?se of the same lu accordance with reg?
latinos heretofore prescribed, and retrain froi
receiving such fro JJ military or naval author
ties after the 80th instant."
Th* general regala tion, which required Mi
Calicott to receive all captured property froi
sha officers of the United States, waa (hus rt
scinded on the 37th of June, 1865, with the fo
lowing limitation :
"This will not be considered as interferin,
with the operations of agenta now engaged i
receiving or collecting the property recentl
captured by or surrendered to the forces of tb
United 8tataa, whether or not covered by, o
included in, the records delivered to the Uni
ted States military or treasury authorities b
-bal mik! at j em\eorm or cotton a* cn to. *
The ne? regulation or prohibitory order
therefore, did not extend to proj>erty whicl
had been captured or surrendered by the milt
tary offloera of the Confederate G Dremmen
to the United States. But, with that excep
tion, the prohibition is complete and final, ant
no agent of the Treasury Department waa Jua
tillea in receiving, after the 80ch of June, 1865
any captured property unless theretofore BUT
rendered; muoh lew waa any such officer war
ranted in making any capture of unsurrender
ed cotton himself, after that date, with or with
out n?htaxy aid. He had no authority to dc
eo. All his powers, aa we have said to you
were derived from the Treasury Department
and when the Treasury Department withdrew
that general authority, it waa at an end.
The question, then, in this case ia, whethei
this waa part of the property which bad beet
surrendered by the military authorities of the
Confederate Government to the United State?
?or to the 37th of June, 1865. You have
od all the evidence, and it is your province
to determine whether or not this property waa
in that category. If it was, then it was Cali
oott'a duty to receive it, and transmit it to the
authorities of the United States for sale, and
the only remedy which the owner or claimant ol
the cotton could poaaihly have, would ba by ap?
plication to the Court of Claims of the United
States. The whole matter seems to be nar?
rowed down to the simple proposition whether
the evidence before you satisfies your minda
that this cotton was included in the surrender
referred to in the Secretary's instructions ol
the 27tb of June. If it was so included, then
the court chargea you that neither the action
of the Provee. Court, relied upon by tbe de?
fendant, nor the action of any State Court,
could withdraw it from that citegory, without
the consent of the United States. If it was on
the 27th of June captured property, in this
sense, that is property surrendered by the
military authorities of the Confederate Govern?
ment to the United Mates, then it remained
captured proparty, and could not be released
by tba action of the Pro ve* t Court That ac?
tum, if intended to have thia effect, waa with?
out sanction of law, and of no avail.
If it waa such property, it was the duly of
the defendant to take possession of it; if not,
bia Beiauie waa unlawful. But there is another
question, not necessarily determinad by the
character of the property, on which it is the
duty of the court to make some observations.
By au act passed on the 27th of July, 1868,
Congruas d dared the intent of the several
acts relating to captured property. Among
these was the Abandoned or Captured Property
act of March 12,1863; of which, as well as of
the others, the true intent was declared to be
that the remedy given in oases of seizure by
preferring claim in the Court of Claims should
be exclusive, precluding the owner of any pro?
perty taken by agents of tbe Treasury Depart?
ment, as abandoned or captured property, in
virtue "or under color of said act," from suit
at common law, or any other mode of redress
whatever, before any other court or tribunal
other than the Court of Claims. It will be
for you to say whether tbe deioudmt in
taking this property proceeded undor color of
that act. Ii he was procsediu? m good faith,
believing himself to be warranted as the ofh
cSr of tho national government iu taking
charge of the cotton, under that act, we think
he is covered by ita provision. We adopt
this view the more readily because, in a sub?
sequent part of the ace, it i j provided that, 'in
all oases in whica suits of trespass" (which is
this case) "may have been brought, or shall
hereafter be brought, against any person for
or aooounuof private property taken by such
person as an officer of the United States, bv
vrtue of 'any act relating to captured) or aban?
doned property,'and the defendant shall plead,
or allege ia bar thereof, that such act was
done or omitted to be done by him as an offi?
cer of tbe United States, in the adminiatrati on ?
of one of th? acts aforesaid, or in virtue, or <
under color thereof, such plea or allegation, if
the fact be sustained -by the proof, shall be
d?emed and adjudged in law to be a complete
and conclusive bar to an*/ such suit or action."
It ia our duty, under this act, to say to you
that the plea of the defendant, in this case, is
a conclusive bar to this action, if you find af?
firmatively that the acts of bis, complained of
in the declaration, were done by him in virtue,
or under color, of any of the acts referred to.
If it was done by bim, as supervising special
agent, under a mistake as to the character of
this property, be is, in our judgment, protect?
ed by this act. It would Lot protect the United
States from a demand in the Court of Claims
for this property. But it would protect the
officer against a private suit if be acted under
color of this law, or under a mistaken s SD se
of duty, though not in strict pursuance of
You have heard all the evidence, and it is
for you to judge whether he acted under a
86088 of duty or no\ You can weigh th
whole evidence and determine that matter fo
yourselves. . . . ?
The only remaining point upon which it 1
proper to instruct you is this:
It is claimed by counsel that if, in the even
you should find for the plaintiff, you may as
BOSS what aro called vindictive damages. Thi
Court cannot Bay that to you. If you find fo
tho plaintiff it will be 3 our duty to assess th
value of tho property at the time of the coe
version, on tbe21st o? October, 1865, with law
ful interest from that date.
In responso to a request from the counse
for the plaintiff, the Chief Justice added:
If there is anything in the ovidence whicl
satisfies you that the defendant acted withou
any color of law-wilfully and in flagrant disre
gard or his duty-then you have a right to aa
SOBS vindictive damages. But it is tor you t<
say whether there is anything of that sort ii
The jury retired and soon after returnei

Edwin Parsons et al vs. Southwestern Rail?

R. L. Livingston vs. W. Jordan. Porter anc
Conner for plaintiff ; Simonton A Barker fo:
defendant. This was an action of trespass, ti
try title and to recover a tract of land, in Eer
shaw County, known as the Wateree planta
tion, belonging to Mary S. McBae and Julii
McBae, residents of Baltimore. It was all?g?e
that the plantation was sold during the lat
war, without their knowledge or consent
under a decree of the Court of Equity. Thi
title was given to D. G. Robertson, and part 0
the money paid in Confederate currency. Whei
the young ladies came to take charge the;
found the plantation disposed of, without theil
having received a dollar. They brought thii
action on the ground that no one in the Con
federacy had a right to act or bind them ti
their action ; that the title passed by thi
Court of Equity was illegal, and having receiv
ed nothing for their property and having beei
dispossessed of it illegally, they are entitled t<
On the part of the defence it was shown tba
the sale of the plantation was in pursnanci
of a contract made between the purchaser ant
Hon. F. J. Moses, agent for the parties at thi
tim?. The contract was made between Mr. D
O. Robertson and Hon. F. J. Moses. Robert
son paid bis money part cash. One or both
of the young ladies, it was represented, wen
infants. It waa-necessary to make good tb?
title, and as early as 1861 the parties wenl
into a court of equity. The young ladies wen
not only represented by counsel, but by a pro
chain ami, the next friend, their own step
father. The proceedings were conducted witt
his consent, and closed under hi? instructions
and the position they took waa that ina j m ucl
as the proceedings were authorized by their
next friend, and were conducted by eminent
counsel for the infants, the title passed from
the Commissioner in Equity to Mr. Robertson,
who afterwards sold to Mr. Jordan; that what?
ever may have been done with the money, that
is a qnestioa between tbe McReas and theil

Gentlemen of the Jury-This is an action 0
trespass upon ?he case to try title. There ia
very little in it for you to pass upon. The
question of fact lies within a very narrow com?
pass. The only question of importance in the
case is a question of law.
It ia very clear that this contract made be?
tween Mr. Moaea and Mr. Robertson did not
bind the plaintiffs. It was a contract without
authority from them. No person has a right
to intervene as a volunteer for a minor child
and make a contract for the sale of a minor's
estate. This is so clear that it needs no argn
D)?Dt. lt, however, aa apparently in this case,
a person does intervene and make snob a con?
tract, it may become binding by subsequent as?
sent of the parties on arriving at full age, or
through proper proceedings m a court of
There ls no allegation in this case, that we
have heard, of any such subsequent consent of
these parties. You have heard the testimony
of Chief Justice Moses. He stated distinctly
there was no intercourse between him and
these minor children in relation to this con?
tract. It waa made solely at the instance of
their mother and stepfather. So far as their
consent goes, therefore, it may be laid out of
the case. The next question ts whether there
is any jurisdiction in a Court of Equity of the
State of South Carolina to make a decree con?
firming the contract, or for the s i le of the mi?
nor's estate. Upon that point we entertain
very serious doubts. Uudonbtedly an infant
may bring snit by next friend in a Court of
Equity; and the court has jurisdiction in such
a suit to make an order giving authority to
sell the estate of the infant. There is no ques?
tion upon that point. In this case, however,
the suit was brought by the stepfather, rep?
resenting himself as next friend of the minors:
but he himself resides in Maryland, beyond
the jurisdiction of the court in which the suit
was brought. Though represented as the
guardian of the minors, he was not auch in
fact. He had ceased to be the guardian of
one, under the laws of Maryland, for more than
two years, and of the other for nearly two.
And one of the heirs became of age. accord?
ing to the laws of South Carolina, within four
days after the suit was brought, and the other
long before the final decretal order, under
which the defendant claims title; and neither
wa-, ever bronght formally into court.
Aa we have already said, we doubt upon the
question of jurisdiction; but for the purposes
of this case will rule that jurisdiction to con?
firm this contract made in behalf of the minors,
or to pass the final decretal order under which
the title was conveyed, did not exist. The de?
fendant, if dissatisfied, may move in arrest of
judgment, or for a new trial.
Under this ruling, gentlemen, your verdict
must be for the plaintiff; for, if there was no
jurisdiction in the court, the defendant cannot
protect himself by its decree.
It is proper to say, further, that although we
pat this case, for the present, upon the ab?
sence of jurisdiction in tbe State Court to con?
firm or order tbe sale, there is another objec?
tion to the defendant's title equally fatal.
The jurisdiction of the State Court over the
plaintiffs, whatever it waa, terminated when
the civil war broke out. Upon that point we
entertain no doubt. As between parties re?
siding in the State of South Carolina and par?
ties residing in the States which adhered to tho
National Government, between whom war
made intercourse impossible, there could be
no jurisdiction in tho Courts of South Caroli?
na, while tho war ontinu:d, by which the
rights of non-residents could be injuriously
This ruling, indeed, applies only to the or?
ders made during the war; it is decisive, how
evor, of this case.
We charge you, gentlemen, that the courts
of ?South Carolin J. have no jurisdiction of these
Slaiu tiffs, and no jurisdiction to make any or
er prejudicial to their rights during thc war.
These instructions, gen lomon, leave noth?
ing for your determination bat the question of
damages. The measure of damages must be
the amount of net profits mode by the defend?
ant from fae plantation. The defendant in
this case is Mr. Jordan, not the original pur?
chaser, Mr. Robertson. If you have heard any
evidence of profits made bj him, you will give
damages to that extent.

ABETS PROPHYLACTIC FLUID,
Letter from Hon. Alex. H. SUphens, of Georgia.
C&AWTOBDsvrLLE, Ga , September 39, 1868.
Darby's Prophylactic Fluid is an article of little
cost, bat great value. Its dom es ti o as well aa medi?
cinal uses are numerous, while its specialties are
most wonderful. I have not been without lt for
ten years, and no head of a family who can afford
to have lt should be without lt

RICHMOND, Va., January 14. 1869.
JOHN Dinar A Co., No. 180 William-street, New
Genttmtn-l have received your letter of the 16th
of December, 1866, calling my attention to your
(Darby's Prophylactic) Fluid.
I most cheerfully state that the Fluid was furnish?
ed to, and extensively asad by, the surgeons in
charge of general b capt tala in the Confederate ser?
vice with great benefit to the patients-all the sur?
geons making a favorable report-a great deal of lt
was used In tue hospitals.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
SA MX PR Ea TON MOOSE, M. D,
EBOBT COLLEGE, OXTOBD, GA., December 28,1868.
Prof. DassT. Dtar Sir- Haying not been en?
gaged for many years in the active duties of the
Medical profession, I am only superficial!)*acquaint?
ed with the claims ef your Prophylactic Fluid, but
am well acquainted with its chemical elements.
While, therefore, I cannot speak experimentally of
the value of the compound, yet the disinfecting and
therapeutic properties of the agents employed In its
composition, together with the well known reputa?
tion jf its discoverer, M a chemist, authorise me to
regard its m?rite as of a high order; on the whole lt
must be considered as a valuable contri Dutton to the
class of articles to which it belongs.
These views, I may add, are luetained by the testi?
mony ol many competent Judges, who have tested
its properties. Believe me, dear sir.

Messrs. JOHN DARBT A Co, No. 160 William-street,
Gentlemen-I received you ciro ulars of tie ic th
instant, asking an expression of opinion from me as
to the merits of your Prophylactic Fluid. The pre?
paration bas been so generally used J y the proles
sion and public at large, and so universally esteem?
ed, that it seems to me to need no further recom?
As a disinfectant and remedial agent too, when in?
dicated, it is not excelled by any similar preparation.
We use permeanganic preparations very extensively
tn this hospital, and could not do without them. I
consider yours the best and most elegant prepara?
tion of the kind manufactured.
