were sent nflto the Northern cities. This
inorning, however, it was understood th-it
the bill il been made safe" during the
night-a change having been etected in
te opinion!, of some who had voted against
it,.and it would therefore not be necessary
for the Speaker to reverse his decis.
n', as it could bei overruled by a
6 jurity. When the [louse tmet, it Was
apparent from the cool aid contfident bear

that they felt assured of having the game
in their hands, andl the counienainces and
conduct ofsoume of those who vesterday
voted against the bill afforded unerrinmg in
dications of the men and measures by which
it was secured.
At 12 o'clock the consideration of the
Teian Boundary bill was resumed, the

Howard of'Texas, from the decision made
yes tday by the Speaker, that the motion
to re onsider was not in order, the hill hav.

Speaker stated, at some lengi I, tle gromds

Mr. Howard appealed from the decisimp
and stated tihat the object of his mot lio yo

to place all the creditors of Texas onm the

whereas by the arrangement in the bill, a

compelled to repulbate at least three m:I

The question was thenitaken on suistain.ng

Mr. Venable interposed the objection that

Mr. Thompson of Pa. contended that the

California was prima facie evidence of their
right to seats, and that the Speaker was
lioundi to admninister the oath to then. The
Speaker decided that objection having been

would ngt be eonsidered decent i depart
froin that custom, for it to be celebratod by
a priest, or a clergyman, duly authorized by
the Church to which be belongs, or by a

Tie Legislature of this State have never
exercised the power to grant divorces.
Whether they have that 'power or not is an
unsettled point; but the-bettcr opinion would
sOm to bo that they, have it not. Ry the
common law of this State marriages are in
dissoluble : the U. S. Constitution. provides
"that no State shall pasa any law imparing
the obligation of contracts." It would seem
therefore, that an Act of the Legislature
dissolving a contract indissoluble by law,
without the consent of the parties, woul be
unconstitutional; and it may well be ques
tioned whether the wife has the legal capacity
to consent. It would doubtless be cornpe
tent for the Legislature to pass an Act pro
viding that future marriages might be dis
solved, by the Legislature or by the Courts,
but until such nu Act is passed, it many well
be questioned whether a South Carolina
marriage can be dissolved by any human
Vhuat you say aboit the Statutes at large
is true. The index is very unsatisfactory
ani several important Statutes are otnitted
in the body of the work. We will mention
sene that have conic under our observation.
The I Ith section of tho Act of 17-15 (3 stat.
668) is omitted. It Is true at the root of the
Act it is said : "The original not to be found.
The above is copied fmm Grinke p. 20 1."
The I Ith section is a very important one.
It is to bo found in I Brev. Dig. 39Z, and is
recognized as law in the case of Muckin.
fuss rs. Ifcuah I Jli', Ch. 182. It is a
mistake to say that that section was "re-en
acted by A. A, of 12th March, 1789." It
was re-enacted so far as it related to "ete
cutors and administratrs;" but the I ith
section of the Act of 1715 is the only law
of force which gives comminssions to "guar.
dians and truustes."
The important Act of 1717 (P. L. 213)
which provides, inter alia, that no ca. sa.
s!-all issue aginst a defendant for any deb:
or damages under ?20 current mun'y; and
the equally important Act of 1769 (1. L.
'268) entitled " An Act for establishing
Corits, building Goals" &c., are both omit
ted in the Statutes at large. In relation to
the Act of 1769, it inay be observed, that,
in th" 7th vol. of t o Statutes at Large. p. 197,
will be found an Act of 1768, the title and
provisions of whieb, though anost identi

ply provides "that tno person shall be held to
hail on any writ of capias ad resp'ondendum
for debt, unless an aflidavit shall be made"
&c., whereas the Act of 1769, whuich is the
Act of force, provides (sec. 2 I, P. L. 273)
"that no person (excepting trisient persons)

The Great Ticket Auotlon,
At length we know at what rate Jenny
Lind's notes will be cashed in America.
In despite of the rain, about three thousand
people attended the sale of tickets for her
first concert on Wednesday evening; pay
ing 12 1-2 cents each for the privilege of
going into Castle Garden to make their bids.
Leeds, the head of the auction firm of Henry
Leeds 4-Co Wall street,held the vendue,
and standing upon tih stage where Jenny is
to-eig on Wednesday night, sold the seats
n their order frons best down to fair and
middling. The king place oF all, which
stands in the centre of tie semi circle of
seats nearest to the stage, was the object
of brisk competition. The principal bid
ders were Mr. Monno, of the New Nork
Hotel, Mr. Genin, tho hatter of 214 Broad
way, and (report says) Drs Blrandreth,Moff
fat and Towrisend. The first bid we heard
was 8550. From that point it was rapidly
rn by $l1's, S15's and -$25's to -200.
Mr. Genin's agent then hid 82.25-"Shall I

blaidest manner. You might have heard a
mouse run across the romi the peop!e wert.
so still. But no one spoke; and after a short
pause, and a conipreliensive glance round
the romi in search of a 825 nod, 31r. Leeds
knocked down the enveted prizu to Mr.
Genin. Three cheers were at once given
for the enterprising hatter, and t he applatuse
continued it intervals for full ten minutes.
Between fourteen & fifteen hundred tickets
were then rapidly disposed of- at prices va.

little sum of $9,50) or thereablouts. Three
