was part of the assets of the bank when it failed.
Defendant pleaded that the bank was put in
liquidation illegally, inasmuch as the currency act
of the United States was not complied with, and
therelfore the institutioh could not he put in the
Iiands of a receiver. " There never," It was
averred. "was a legal protest made of ore of its
circulating notes, nor any of the formalities pur
eutd, which are re n-ired by the act creating the
national banking srsti in, which wool' authorize
the placing of the bank in the handsof aroceiver.
That by force, and without the warrant of law,
an ,omcer of the treasury departmient of the
United btates took onrasession of the bank, all its
assets, ionke, records aid archives, and aoltng
its assets a large amount of the currency of tihe

him to accept the transfer of said three hondred

Dunham being tbsert from the cl'y, and his not.
dee, this oempliance with their request would
save the stock from being thrown upon the mar
ket and sacrficed: whereas, in May or June, a
large dividend would be declared, and the esgck
citinue as valuable, and that when said D)oniam
should return, the whole matter would be ar
ranged: that said note was without value to anl
one, and was given only to be used to represent
a transaction between the said Dunham and the
said May, until the former should return."
It was further'leaded that, if the note was en
tered upon the books as the property of the bank,
it was dine irregularly, and should have been
placed to the credit of the respondent as the last
and only indorser, and, should it have been en

gave no consideration for said note; that though

given and what it represented, and that he cool I

G;ideon Welles, says a Washington correspond
ent, roes out on horseback every afternoon, look
ing like a gray dervish. He likes the lazy en
jyment of office. Seward stays at bome of
lRghts, drinking sherry kindly furnished by Mar
shal Murray. Self-enjoyment is the key of his
character ; selfgratifcatlon his chief delight. HM
loves to eat and drink and talk genteelly, and on
a loll stomach to nladite huge briefs about the
state. It is most natural that this Prince Hal of
materialista should be, at the end, a buyer of
lands and a builder of game preserves. It is not
impossible that Alaska attracted him because it
was a nursery of canvasback ducks. Reasonlng
from the pleasures of the table to the plekures
ao the stalto, he coneelved the idea of catching
the whole rae of wild ducks in the egg. Being
old and thin of blood, the dream of warm fura
gave him aspirations towards the land of the ea
otter and the silver fox. And so, out of his reo
luptuary worship, he sat, like one of the old
gods, a treaty maker to the car, and fetched
seven millions' worth of marketing home. Mr.
Seward is the state purveyor; look back tte the
origin of bh name, amd you will probably Lnad t
to be sIeard.
