AN ACT TO ENABLE THE BANKS OF THE
STATE TO CLOSE THEIR BUSINESS. ' : .
Whereas, The financial' policy of the Federal
Government adopted to maintain the national
credit, with the heavy taxes imposed by that Gov
ernment on the Banks of the State, makes it ab
solutely necessary that said Banks should dose
their business, and. renders a further continuance
of their corporate existence idle and useless to the'
people of the State,
Sectian 1. He it enacted by the General Assembly
of the State of North-Carolina, and it is hereby
enacted by the authrity of' the same. That if the
Stockholders of any of the Banks chartered by the'
General Assembly of this State stu.ll be unwilling
to close the business of their Banks by an assign
ment, and are desirous to appropriate all the estate
and effects of such Bank lor the benefit of its
creditors, and to close its business and surrender
their chartered rights and franchises In conformi
ty with the subsequent provisions of "this act,
such Stockholders may by their bill In equity iu
the name of such Bank tiled in the Court of Equity
o; the county in which the principal Bank or any
of its branches may be located, require the credi
tors of such Bank to prefer and establish their
demands within such time (not less than twelve
months after decree therefor) as shall be allowed
by the Court. The Court shall upon filing such
biU appoint as commissioner a suitable person
acquainted with the business of such Bank, who
shall be paid for his services such sum as may be
allowed by the court. Such commissioner shall
give bond with ample security, payable to the
State for the faittful discharge of his dnties in
such sum as shall be approved by the court,
which bond shall be filed in court and may be
sued on for the use of such persons as the court
8ec. 2. Beit further enacted, That the commis
sioner appointed as aforesaid, upon filing the bond
required of him, shall forthwith become, and so
long as he shall contine such commissioner and
no longer, shall be vested with all the estate, ef
fects and rights of action which such Bank posses
sed, had or held or was vested with, at the time
of tiling such bill, and which such Bank could at
that time have lawfully sold, assigned or trans
ferred, including all debts due to such Bank or to
any person for its use and all liens and securities
therefor. The court may require such Bank by
its Cashier or other proper officer to endorse
without recourse, all such bills or notes, draw all
such checks or orders for money aud execute such
other paper writings as the court shall deem ne
cessary or useful to enable the commissioner to
demand or recover and receive the estate and ef
fects of such Bank for the benefit of lis creditors.
The commissioner shall have the like remedy to
recover and receive all the estate, debts and effects
belongiug to such Bank at the time of filing its
bill, as such Bank might have had if no proceed
ings had been had under this act; and should any
such Bank have made any sole or transfer of its
property or effects, fraudulent as to its creditors
but valid as between the parties, iu such coses
such commissioner shall stand in the place of the
creditors, and may recover aud receive such pro
perty or effects so fraudulently sold or transferred,
although such Bank could not have done so. In
all suits prosecuted by such Commissioner at
law or in Equity the plaintiff shall be styled "The
Commissioner, (adding thereto the name of the
particular Bank lor which he bas been appointed
the Commissioner.) aud if at the time of filiug
such bill by any Bank any action at law or pro
ceeding or suit m equity 6 nan oe pending in me
name of such Bank for the recovery or any estate,
debt or demaud which might or ought to be vested
in such Commissioner as aforesaid, such Commis
sioner shall be admitted to prosecute the same in
like manner and to like effect; and no suit peud
iner at anv time for the recovery of any estate.
debtor demand in the name of such Commission
er shall be abated by the death or removal ot such
Commissioner, but a Commissioner to be appoint
ed in such cases (as is hereinafter provided) shall
be admitted to prosecute the same in like manner
and to like ettect as it me same nau oeen origin
ally commenced by him.
Sec. 3. He it further enacted. That the Commis
sioner aforesaid shall in all thintrs connected with
the discharge of his duties as Commissioner, act
under the direction and orders of the court; aud
it any such Commissioner shall refuse or unrea
sonably delay or neglect to obey any rule, order
or decree ot tne court, it suuii oe me amy oi lac
court to remove such Commissioner; aud upon
such removal or upon any vacancy by death or
otherwise, the court shall appoint some other
person Commissioner, who shall enter into bond
in such sum as the court shall direct in like man
ner and for the like uses and purposes as provided
in cases of the commissioner ttrst appointed ;
and thereupon all the estate, property, effects
debts and rights of action vested in such Bank
after the time ol filing its bill, not before lawfully
disposed ot by any former Commissioner, shall be
forthwith vested in such new commissioner as
legally and effectually as if he had been the com
missioner first appointed; and the court shall have
the powerto require any former commissioner or
the representative of any deceased commissioner,
to surrender to such new commissioner auy such
estate, effects, money or evidence ot debt which
of right should be in the hands or possession of
such new commissioner.
Sec. i. licit further enacted, That all demands
of creditors may be preferred and proved before
such commissioner, and for all purposes connect
ed with the Investigation of the demands of any
person claiming to be a creditor as aforesaid, the
commissioner shall have power to administer all
oaths required in theconrscof such proceedings.
Any supposed creditor whose claims shall be
wholly or in port disallowed by any commission
er, may appeal to the Court, where the same shall
be determined according to the course of the
Court, or decided at law, as the court may direct ;
and in all such appeals the case shall be docketed
in the name of the creditor against " The Com
missioner of " (addiug the name of the Bank
of which he is commissioner,) and shall be tried
and determined as like suits between other parties.
In all cases in which any such commissioner shall
be a party, whether plaintiff or defendant, and it
shall appear that there has been mntnal credit
given by the Bank, and any other corporation or
any person who is the opposite party, or there are
mutual debts between them, whether such debts
be due and payable or not, the account between
the parties shall be stated, and one debt shall be
set off against the other, and the balance of such
account only shall be allowed or paid on eitheir
side respectively ; and the costs in all cases shall
be paid by either party as the court shall direct.
The commissioner shall from time to time pre
pare statements in writing of all claims allowed
by him; showing the character of such claims and
the evidence oh which their validity is based ;
and there shall be no application of any funds in
the hands of such commissioner to the satisfac
tion in whole or in part of anv claim whatever.
except under a rule or order of the court there-
Sec. 5. Beit further enacted. That the court shall
make all proper orders and decrees for the collec
tion of the assets of such Bank, of every nature
and description, and for the payment of the costs
and expenses incident to the proceedings. The
creditors whose claims and demands have been
proved and established as aforesaid asrainst the
estate and effects ot such Bauk in the hands of the
commissioner, ahull be entitled to payment in
satisfaction of the same out of the assets in hands
of such commissioner, as the court shall order
and direct; and ull such claims and demands not
prosecuted, proved and established accordingjto
the provisions of this act within the time allowed
by the decree of the court therefor, shall be barred
of recovery by any action at law or other proceed
ing in equity ; and any suit brought for their re
covery otherwise than isjiercin provided shall on
the plea of the ' commissioner of 6uch Bank be
abated, or on his motion be dismissed.
Sec. 6. Be it further enacted. That it shall not be
necessary in auy bill filed under this act, to make
uuy imrncuiiir persous or corporations pnriiu uy
name, but it shall be sufficient if the defendants
be denominated creditors of the particular Bank
in behalf of which suit may be instituted; and
notice of the bill ahull hp miiillfthed for the SDace
of thirty days so soon as It may be filed in at least
fifteen newspapers, one of which shall be pub

! : Sec. 7. Beit further enacted, .That any one of the
the Judges of the Supreme Court, or Of Jhe Su
perior Courts of law and equity, shall have power
at his chambers, from time to time, to make any
Buch rules, orders or decrees as may' be necessary
or required for expediting the settlement of ail
conti o versies between any commissioner appoint

ance and instruction of any commissioner in any
maiier connected witn tne aiscnarge ox ma auues,
for the removal or appointment of a commission
: or,; or for the: speedy, execution of any of the
powers oy tnis act conferred on a court ot equity.
Sec. 8. Be it further enacted, That the filing by
or on behalf of any Bank, of a bill in the court of
equity, under the provisions of this act, shall,
upon the appointment and qualification of a com
missioner thereunder, be deemed aud taken to all
intents and purposes to be a surrender by such
Bank of all the corporate rights and franchises
granted to such Bank ; and all. laws by virtue of
which any such Bank then exists as a corporation
are hereby repealed, and such corporation shall
be thereupon ' dissolved, and all the effects and
consequences following or incident to the disso
lution of a corporation" at common law shall ensue
thereon; and any statute law of this State to the
contrary notwithstanding. Provided, however,
That the estate property, and rights of action
vested, in the commissioner, as provided by this
act, shall not be In any way diverted or impaired
thereby, nor shall the rights of any creditor of
such Bank against such commissioner or against
