WASHINGTON, August 4.7-r-Murahnl
Goodloe, of. the Districted* North
Carolina,' hos reported to tho Attor?
ney-General that the process of the
United. States Oirch.it Conrt lately
held by Chief Justice Chase is ob?
structed by order of Lient. Col.
O'Neil Franki commanding tho post
of Wilmington. The ground is ex?
pressly mentioned in tho order to be,
.that in euch of the cases obstructed,
the cause of action adjudicated npou
by Judge Ol?ase acoraed botween the
9th Doccfober, 1860, and 15th May,
1865. Gen. Sickles' Order No. 10
having forbidden judges to enter?
tain any suits for matters accruing
botween thorn dates, the , marshal
supposes that Gen. Sickle-* did not
mean to include the courts of the

8rets the order differently. Marshal
?oodloe hus anspended action until
he hears from Gen. Sickles, or re?
ceives instructions from Washington,
being anxious to avoid any collision.
This, matter is regarded as a very
grove event, although tho impression
prevails that the commandant at
Wilmington hos acted without the
knowledge of Sickles, who is confi?
dently expected to disapprove his
action. Goodloc's course hos been
npproved at the Attorney-General's
office, but no step will be taken until
tho time has passed for a report from
the Commanding General.
