An important case was tried before
the United States District Court at
Memphis, Tennessee, last week. It
was that of Park against Hamilton,
and its history was as follows: In the
year 1862, while the rebel forces still
held possession of Memphis, the de?
fendant,- Thomas ? Hamilty, was ap?
pointed by the rebel Government an
agent to seize certain sugars and cot?
ton, the property of merchants whom
it was believed were purchasing and
holding suoh commodities upon specu?
lation, in view of the probable sur?
render of Memphis to ?he Federal
forces, and against the laws of the
rebel Congress, and the declared
policy of that Government, whose
officers were instructed to prevent the
undue accumulation of articles of
prirae commercial value at points as
seriously threatened as Memphis then
was. In obedience' to instructions
then given him, Hamilton seized a
number of hogsheads of sugar, the
property of Dr. A. J. Park-valued
at $75,000-and turned it over to the
rebel receiver or quartermaster, or
with other sugars at that time seized,
Sent it South by railroad No vonok
ers were given, but a memorandum
was made at the time of the value
and number of barrels and hogs?
heads, and in some cases, we believe,
copies of such were furnished the
owners. Dr. Park now brings suit
against Mr. Hamilton to recover the \
value of the property so seized. j
Oa the 28th ultimo the jury came |
into court and announced that they j
were unable to agree ripon a verdict,
and the case .got?s . over to the ' next
term of the court.
Another case of importance, came
up before the court on the 2Kth ul?
timo. It was that of Thomas E.
Chester against P. Titu?, ll. (.'. Brink?
ley, and others, members of the vigi?
lance committee of 1801. Mr. Ches?
ter sues the vigilance committee, or
such of its members asare now living,
to recover the value of k steamboat
seized by that body and afterwards
turned over to the refiol Government
and destroyed; and -having been a
resident of St. Louis during the war,
being all the while recognized as a
loyal man, if he establishes the fact
of seizure'and destruction, according
to the charge of Judge Trigg in the
case of Park aMfcHamilton. he will,
it is thought, rerover the full value of
his craft from the parties sued.
It is stated in the Now York papers
that thc United States*steamers iihode
Island and Hornet, the latter former?
ly known as the blockade renner
'"'Lady Sterling," have been ordered
to proceed to Havana, to convey to
Washington the Confederate Stone?
wall, heretofore surrendered to the
United Skates*- -Government by the
Spanish authorities. The assignment
of the Bhode Island to this duty dis?
poses of the oft-repeated report that
it was fitting out to convey President
Johnson to Korth. Carolina and other
Southern States, ir b
A good story is told o? a "country
gentleman,", who for the first timi
heard an Episcopal clergyman preach.
He had read much of the aristocracy
and pride of the Church, and whet
he returned home, he was asked if th?
j>eople were "stuck up." "Pshaw
no," replied he, "why, tho ministe
preached in his shirt-sleeves."
