and Capt. J. Henry Rives, son of Judge
Alexander H. Rives, had a big light in

this morning, but was postponed until
The reason for the postponement is
that Judge Blackstone could not be
here until that time.
It Is In this court that the Finch vs.

that It will be one of the first cases to

filed their answer to the bill of Mrs.
Finch, and It Is not likely that they
will do so until they have to.
Mr. Finch is the principal in several
other suits that are on the docket of
this court, and if they are all tried at
this term the entire session almost will
be taken up with his cases.
