Sixvw Dvrarc CotIrT.-On th 19th ult., J. B.
Richardson filed a petition astaist Patrick
O'Bara, a State senator, and J. Pinokney Smith,
warrant clerk of the Legislature, for 8307 60, on
the ground that O'Hara sold his per diem as sena
tor to plaintiff, giving him an order on said 8mith.
as warrant clerk, tor 8410, which he let wilk
SThat, some time thereafter, said O'Hara went
to said warrant clerk and asked to see the order,
under pretense that he wished to refresh his
memory as to its terms, and that so soee as he ob
tained it be put the same in his pocket.and at the
same time forbade said warrant clerk to issue any
warrants to petitioner. and carried away and re
tains said lnetrument of writing. AUa said O'anra
refuses to refond said $307 50 to petitioner, or any
part thereof, and refuses to give any other order
That O'Hara Is utterly and entirely Irrespeesible
pecuniarily, and oommitted said sote with desiga
and intent to defread and wrong petitioner.
ThatJ. P. Smlth intends and threatens to Issue
to sald O'eara the warrants aforesaid, sad unless
restrained and sejoised from so doing, great and
Irreparable injury will result to petitioner. And
said O'Hara intends sad threatens to demand and
receive said warrants, and if he gets hold of them
M herefore petitioner asks for citation, and for
injunct;on forbidding O'Hara to demand or re
ce i ve raid warrants or any part thereof, and said
Smith to issue the same to any other than petl
Stoner; but that the latter be ordered to ssue the
warrants to petitioner.
On the 27th January O'ltara excepted to plain.

other perish than the place of his domicil, and is
now cerving his term in the Senate that is now in

t and pay under the coostitution, and said salary or
paj is not subject to garnishment, or any other
prcess of court by which he, defendant, could be
divested of his own individual (sK") to demand
' is warrant for his pay; the srd warrant (s;c)
could not by lqw issue his warrant to any person
except the memniber entitred to isese. No direc

Much excitement was caused yesterday in the

tlones rstd opera scores, which had been pur
chaed in Europe and 'ppped to Havana on specu
latson. The idea of the snipper was that those
not pu; ch1ted for use in Havana would be needed
for Mexican artists. Few buyers appeared for
the latter, owing to te impoverished and un
settled state of Mexico. and the revolutionary
trouotles of Cuba roendered a sale in Havana
equally impracticable. fTe goods were conse
quently forwarded to the lese promising New
York market, and sold at prices upon which the
buyers had reason to felicitate themselves.
The sale was well advertised among the man
agers and costumers, asd bilts had been oirnu.
