AX I.VTEItKSTIAG CASE.
THE RIOIIT Or KECr.l9SIOar TO BK DK-
TEKXIXED BT TIK. NCPREMK,
A case of much interest was beforo the
Supremo Court of the United State'a cn
Tuesday last. The tjtle of the caso Is
Hickman vs. lletr and others, In error
from tho U. 8. District Court for tho
Southern District of Alabama. Hick
man sued defendants for malicious pros
ecution and false Imprisonment iu 1SG3.
Pending the war Hickman was Indicted
In n Court sitting under Confederate au
thority fortroason against the Confeder
ate government. Unonthischargohe was
arrested and confined in prison from
January to May In that year, and on
trial nnd acquittal was discharged. He
was subjected to heavy expense by the
employment of couusel and other causes,
and his suit 1$ to recover that amount
and damages for his impris
onment. Some of the defendants had
acted as graud Jurors in tho Confederate
Court, and In that character found the
iu'lictment; nnd other defendants under
the same authority mado the arreSf.
They defended themselves upon two
grounds: first, that tho court was ale
gal one, because established by a gov
dc facto; secondly, becauso the plaintiff,
as they alleged, had participated In tho
rebellion, Tho court below overuled the
first ground, md ruled upon
the second that if the: Jury
found that tho plaintiff waa
not, during the entire rebellion, loyal to
the United State.-, he could not recover,
and the Jury found a verdict for defend
ants. Asm tno loyalty to the United
States of tho' plaintiff, tberoAvas no eon-r
dieting evidence, and thero was evidence
from which It was said In the argument
the Jury might hare found that, although
the plalnlltl was at first disloyal to the
United States, he in good faith returned
to his loyalty and continued so uutll the
clone of tho rebellion, and that this was
his condition when he was indicted and
nrrested. Tho caso was argued by Hon.
Itevcrdy Johnson for tho plalntifTIu er
ror. It will bo seen that both questions
aro of sreat public Interest. The Grat In
volves the rjght of accession, and the le
gality of the governments established
under it; and tho other, whether a party,
originally concerned in rebellion, could
not resume bis loyalty, and share tho
protection of tho Coustitutlon and laws
of the United States.
