T h * M ysterious M urder .—The four women whose
arrest we noticed a few day» ago—Ann Justice. Mary Grif
fin, Mary Lyndeand Bridget Doyle—were brought up be.
fore Recorder Baldwin yesterday morning for examination,
on the charge of murdering Francis Prendergast on the 2d
inst. Th^particulars of the case, so far a« they are known,
we have already given—and there was nothing elicited, on
the examination, calculated to throw any light npon the
subject. The evidence of the prosecutor, John Kennelly,
amounted to nothing. He testified that the deceased was
engaged to be married to Mary Lynch, and that he (Ken
nelly) had done all in his power to prevent the comumma.
ton of the match. He only supposed, at the timeof making
his affidavit against the parties, that they knew something
concerning Prendergast 's death — There being nothing to
^g^rrant the detention of the prisoners, they were discharged
A nother C aution to P arent -.-On Saturday eve.
ninsr. at half-past 5 o'clock, as Mrs. Mulrea, wife of V
Mulrea, ship carpenter, residing in Algiers, was in her
kitchen preparing supper for her husband, she heard her
infant crying and ran into the house to see it. leaving her lit
tie son, about two and a half vtare old, in the krenen. In
less ban one minute afterwards a nex'-door neighbor heard
««.reaming, and on looking through the fence saw ihe child
on fire; he jumped over and put the fire out, but it had
already done its work of destruction : the lui le sufferer lin
gered in the greatest agony until half past one o'clock
Monday last, when death terminated its sufferings.
F irst D istrict C ourt .—The trial of Thomas Fret
well afias Teelman, came on yesterday before the First Dis
trict Court. The offences for which the accused was in
die'ed, wee collecting $1000 from Felicie Lefevre, $600 from
Ann Campbell, representing himself as a tax collector. He
was found guilty on both counts. Tom Hood's advice—
" Here comes Mr. Winter, collector of taxes,
I advue you to give him whatever he axes,"
might have been very good, but we think Mr. Fretwell will
fret -well in prison for personating a character not his own.

Condensed Decisions— N ew O rleans . April 16. 1849.
Persons, not parties to a note, who pat their names upon
as endorsers, are presumed to have done so as sureties
and are liable in solido unless they demand a division.
The exception of division is a peremptory one which
must be specially pleaded, it cannot be supplied by the
Court. When the exception is pleaded by one surety,
is competent for the plaintiff to prove the insolvency
the other snrety.
R obert M c C ausland vs. L yons and S mith..
A/i/ieal from the late Thud Judicial District Court,
of the Parish of West Felicianu.. . S lidell , J...
Per Curiam . Lyons and Smith are sued upon
note of the following tenor :
" On the first of April, 18-13, we or either of tis,
promise to pay to Robert McCausland, or order,
the sum of $2200, payable and negotiable at the
Louisiana Slate Bank at St. Franrisville, bearing
ten per cent, per annum from maturity until paid,
it being for value received this first day of April,
1842. (Signed) P. B. McKelvey."
On the bark of this note are the signatures of
the defendants, " H. A. Lyons " and " Ira Smith."
The petitioner, who is the payée of this note,
alleges that Lyons and Smith signed before the de
livery of the note to him. and thus incurred the lia
bility of sureties in solido. Lyons and Smith an
swered, admitting their signatures only, and plead
ing the general issue. The Court below gave
judgement in favor of the plaintiff against the de
fendants each for his virile share, and from this
judgeD|g|t l ' le plaintiff has appealed, and asks that
the jt^pment be amended so as to condemn the
defendants in solido.
Our first inquiry is, under what class of contracts
does the obligation contracted by Smith and Lyons
fall ? This is answered by several decisions of our
predecessors and of this Court, which must be con
sidered as settling the point in this Stale. By this
irregulaA indorsement Lyons and Smith bound
ihemseWBs as surelies. See Smith vs. Gorton, 10
L. R. 376 ; Laurence & Hill vs. Oakey, 14 L. R.
389; McGuire vs. Bos worth, 1 Annual, 2-18. Such
being the character of the contract, our next in
quiry is, are these sureties liable each for the whole
debt, or is the liability merely joint ?
By the article 2088 of our Civil Code (which is
taken literally from I he article 1202 of the Napoleon
Code) it is declared that " an obligation in solido is
not presumed ; it must be. expressly stipulated."
The rule ceases lo prevail only in cases where an
obligation in solido lakes place by virtue of some
provisions of law, " ou la solidarité a lieu de plein
droit, en outre d'une disposition de la loi." It is
therefore necessary to consider the nature of the
contract of suretyship, for the purpose of deter
mining whether it falls within the exception cong|
templated by that article.
The rule of the Roman Law was that if several
persons beco.ne sureties for one and the same thing,
every one of them is answerable for the whole.
Si plures sint fidejussores. i/uotqunt merit numéro

vision was not ipso jure, but might be demanded
bv a surely when his co-surety was solvent. Inhr

Surety, Book 3, tit. 4, sec. 2. Q
The French Code followed the Institutesand the
Code of Justinian, not however without previous
opposition on the part of those jurisconsults who
desired to extend Ihe rule of the article 1202 to the
contract of suretyship and require an express un
dertaking to impose a liability in solido. That
Code was thus made to harmonize with the Roman
Law and the opinions of Vinnius and Donneau
which were adopted by Pothier. See the history
of the law on this subject as given byTroplorig,
Cautionnement, sec. 281 et seq. Pothier, Obi., sec.
416. The latter considers the principle of solida
rity as inherent in and derivable from the nature of
the contract. Il est de la nature du cautionnement
de s'obliger à tout ce que doit le débiteur principal ;
et par consequent chacun de ceux qui le cautionnent,
est censé contracter cet engagement, a moins qu'il ne
déclare expressément qu'il ne s'oblige que pour jxirtie ;
c'est la raitm qu'en rapporte Vinnius. Ile then al
ludes lo thWxceplion of division, accorded by the
Emperor Hadrian, and says it was adopted in ihe
practice of France.
Our Code has adopted this principle ; and so far
as our present inquiry is involved has substantially
followed the law of Romfand France. After quo
ting articles 3018 and 301'J, C. C., the Court pro
ceeds: "The contract of suretyship under these
provisions of law is of a mixed character. The
obligation of each surety is to pay the whole debt;
but this solidarity is tempered by the right of
division. This right, however, resls in facilitate.
The surety has the right to demand the division ;
but until the right is exercised, the obligation is
solidary. In the present case there has been no
demand of division by the sureties. They were
attacked by the plaintiff as debtors in sulido and
pleaded the general issue. The exception is a per
emptory one, which must be pleaded specially ;
and this has not been done in the Court below, nor
even in this Court. Dividitur obligatio inter plures
fidejussores per exceptionem duntaxat, non ipso jure.
It is not an exception which can be supplied by the
Court. It is obvious that it presents a mixed oj^s
tion of law and fact. Suppose that Lyons or Sroilh
had pleaded the exception of division, the plaintiff
might have met the plea hv proving the insolvency
of ihe other surety. See Troplong, Caut. sec. 2U7
and the authorities there cited. Merlin, Repert,
Vtrro Caution, sec. 4, No.,2."
The judgment below was therefore reversed and
judgment rendered against Henry A. Lyons and
re. Smith in solido for the sum of $2200, with ten
