The telegram was an order for a certain number of field hands, to be delivered at Kenner Station, by parties in Virginia. It appears that, h, obedience to the telegram, tin hands were sent forward, hut that upon arrival the contracting party declined to en gage them. The plaintiffs set up that if the detentiont signed the telegram without au thority he is responsible, under the terms of the contract, in this case some $1100 art involved.

James O Xoyes vs. Sigmund Loch.— Judge Cooley yesterday rendered an elabo rate opinion in the above suit before the Sixth Judicial District Court, iu which the plaintiff sues to annul a .judgment rendered against him in this court for the sum of $1 7R1 0'.*. with iutoicst, in favor of Sigmund Loeb. Tlye judgment was attacked because it was obtained, according to Noyes' alle gations. by fraud and other ill practices. It was alleged that the note sued upon, on and for the amount of which the judg ment was rendered, had been partially paid by plaintiff herein, and that his liability for the balance has been released by the payees of the note, in consideration of a certain assignment of all his property to a trustee, made by said J. O. Noyes for the beuetit of bis creditors. The fraud and ill practices complained of consist of this: That Sigmund Loeb, the party who obtained the judgment sought to tic annulled, was fully aware of the pay ments and of the release set up in the peii (ion for nullity, and that he combined with Simon Loeb &: IV.. the original payees, to defraud J. <». Noyes by a fraudulent or rather fictitious transfer to him of tin- note: and also, liiat l.e conspired and combined with Solomon Loeb, the only witness .-.worn on the trial of the ease of Sigmund Loeb vs. J. O. Noyes, to defraud the present plaintiff. Judgment iu favor ot Loeb and against the plaintiff. J. O. Noyes. D»<-s an Art of the Legislature go into Kfl'eci from its Passage or from (he Date of Promulgation t Wakanpath and Joseph Mef'eri Brothers. In this case, counsel for defendant moved t* set aside attachment, on the ground that (he attachment bond was not made payable to the clerk of the court, a* required by the law of December 30. H70. The question iu this case, and au im portant one it would seem, is whether the Legislature had the right to order that a law -hall take effect from its passage ami ] not from the date ot its promulgation.

Buard Jc Drain j quel.—From the opinion ot Justice Howe j iu this ease we extract as follows: Appeal . from the district court, parish of Natchi- I Inches. In the early part ot 13*7, the de- . feudants entered into a contract with the | plaintiffs, which was afterward reduced to 1 v. i .':ng and signed by defendants, by which j the plaintiff's as commission merchants and . (actors were to furnish plantation supplies j (ji an amount not to exceed $blio0. and the | del'endums, planting partners, agreed to | p to plaintiff's the entire crop of their (b.ii.tutiou, ''which,'' to quote from the I ........

I'lie defendants having failed to make • < rop. suit was brought against them, and judgment obtained against Buard, at (he January tern:. I3ii.i. oi the district ci lift, lor the sum of $)uui . Th e case was i lo.'ii.ued as regard' d Dranuuct. the other ill Ii miaul, aud at tin Decemhi r term of tiie M art, 130V. judgment was leniien d against him. From that judgment plaintiffs have up) • ale.l. and now ask for a reversal and an. i i. anient decreeing the liability of the deli ndant in the l'uil amount asked for in (hi petition. ami j | j I I l'i.i defendant pleads the. following: 1. lb denii s having entered into the con tract at the date stated, but avers that he e.gi.ed the same, having keen compelled to ib 'ii from force of circumstances: and that Ike contract is usurious and au extortion. 2. He admits the indebtedness for one-hail' the supplies, but objects to the commission fit: in'iou not shipped as contrary to law. 3. Ilo alleges error in the mortgage, which ho sii^s should h.i' o boon but for $ 3001 ). i. Ho pleads in compensation the one hall' ' aluc of four mules, w orth, as he alleges, .- x Lund red dollars, returned to plaintiffs, and toe sum of cue hundred dollars for their Lire. o. lb pleads .dso in lus amended answer, toil* the rate ol interest should he onlv tivc per cent, and reiterates the illegality of the ntract entered into to pay live dollars per 'ii cotton which they I ; : j | i I j | i ba'.i minims—ion gun: antecil to ship. I. The evidence show s that the contract w as voluntarily executed by the defendant as well as by Buard. The negotiations commenced in New Orleans by conversa tions is tween the plaintiffs and Buard. and afterward with Drauquet. The ,written agreement was afterward prepared and sent up to tlie plantation. The defendant returned it w it It a letter objecting to the portion in regard to a commission on cotton •lot skipped, and threatening to settle for supplii s already received, and. w e presume, found some other factors. To this plaintiff's i.plied by letter, arguing the matter at length, and intimating that if the de fendants did not choose to sign the agree ment, they were at liberty to withdraw from flic nriungemciit aud find other factors, upon paying for what supplies they bail ■tet'm'.ly i'i'cc' veJ Thereupon tfie de fendants e a am led the agreement, and 'acknowledg' d it to be their voluntary act, as was recorded. The defendant testified that he was forced to sign by the fact that the poverty of his partner prevented the fatter from settling his share. 2. The agreement being established, it ! seems to follow that the clause quoted, by \ g on the ap pidiee; the contract may have been rash, hut it was not uulafotul. It is therefore ordered that the judgment appealed lroin be reversed, ami that the plaintiffs recover from the defendant the sum of $34 iff, and the further sum of $174 i!0 attorneys' fees, with recognition of special mortgage rm the property mentioned, with right to seize'and sell the same. Lizzie Taylor, administratrix, vs. W. B. Robertson and wife—Appeal from the dis trict court, parish of West Baton Rouge. This is a suit on u mortgage note, changed from the executory to the ordinary form, against W. B. Robertson, the maker of the note, and his wife, to whom the land mort gage had been transferred in part payment of her judgment against her husband, prior to those proceedings. From a judgment against the husband tor (lie amount ot the note, and against both, recognizing the mortgage on said land, the wife alone has appealed.

The question of receiving only lawful money, and not warrants, for taxes, has iu tins case ceased to he of any practical in terest. since, by net of March lb. 1S70. it is provided that only lawful money shall be received. * With the legislation that existed at the time this aetiou was instituted, we do not think tho duty ot the respondents to per form the acts which the relator desired to have performed was so clear as to authorize the summary remedy of mandamus.

The question in this ease is whether or not a testamentary executor can sue to set aside, as simulated and fraudulent, an act of sale of real prop erty made by the testator, and have the property declared to belong to the succes sion upon the allegations tiial said sale was made to hinder auddelay the creditors—the executor being one individually—that there are debts amounting to several thousand dollars, and that, although the deceased held a lucrative office, lie. tlie executor, has been unable to find any money or obtain possession of any property whatever, except a small quantity of movables, inventoried at about $3!lb. The court holds that the* sale attacked is just as much the act of the deceased as the will through which the plaintiff derives his appointment and authority. Judgment affirmed. Howell, J.

Iu January. 13to. Wiilffiin 3. Beatty and Clara Brown were married in the pari: h of Rapides: this marriage wak di-solved by the death of Mrs. Beatty, in the lull ol 1317. Her daughter. Judith Beatty, her sole surviving heir, married the plaintiff. L. A. Sauton. and. iit the fall of 13ii.o, died, leaving the two minor children represented by the plaintiff as natural tutor, as her sole surviv iug heirs. Iu behalf ot these, minors the plaintiff 'bus one undivided half of the plantation seized l>y \V. E. Leverich, the judgment creditor of William J. Beatty, the sale ol which he enjoins, and also claims the proceeds of the other half on the ground that Beatty was indebted to his wife, the grandmother of the minors, in the sum of $12,500 for paraphernal lands received and appropriated by him duriug the marriage ____ the said MrsLBeatty, J||id„the mortga'jp securing said indebtedness on the property seized, aud is superior in rank to the mortgage of W illiam J£. Levts as rich, the seizing creditor. The plaintiff alleges that the said planta tion was acquired oy William J. Beatty during the marriage with his wife, Clara Brown; that at her death one-half thereof belonged to lier as partner iu community, tiiere being no community debts; that th* same was inherited by Mrs. Sauton, from whom the minors derived title by inher itane *. The court gave judgment for plaintiff, per petuating the injunction, decreeing the mi nors to be the owners of one undivided half of the plantation, and decreeing them to recover from defendant. William J. Beatty, $12,506, with rive per cent per annutn intei est therffou from the thirty-first day of De cember, 1817, with recognition of mortgage upon the property of the said William J. Beatty, dating, ranking and taking effect from the seventh day of March, 1345. The defendants anil the iutervenors have appealeiL It is proved that the property involved in this litigation was acquired by William J. Beatty during the marriage with his wife, Clara Brown, that the minors are her ftraudehiidren, being the issue of tho marriage of Judith Beatty with L. A. San ton, aud being her sole heirs, and that tiie said Judith Beatty died in the fall of 1.317. The title to one undivided half of the plantation seized by W. E. Leverich, the judgment creditor of W. J. Beatty, is therefore established in the minors, it being the share of their grandmother in the com munity which existed between her aud her husband. William J. Beatty. The claim for twelve thousand dollars paraphernal funds received and appropri ated by said Beatty as alleged, is also satis factorily established, together with the legal mortgage securing the same. But it is contended that this mortgage was not recorded, as required by law. pre vious to the first of January, 1370. The mortgage not being iu the shape of .i written act or judgment, Mr. Ryan caused to be recorded in the parish of Rapides, on tho thirtieth day of November. 13*i:», the fol lowing statement, to wit: State of Louisiana, palish of Rapid, s.— The statement of M. Ryan, being cognizant with the facts herein stated and ot the sum received, aud of all other matters pertinent to these presents, shows that Lewis A. Sauton. tutor of the minors of Louisa Amelia and Clara Maria, the issue of his marriage with Judith Beatty, that they, the minors, did inherit from their mother $12.500.Tind bearing three per cent interest from the thirty-first of December. 1347, and to secure to them the said sum they have a tacit mortgage on a certain plantation iu the State ami parish aforesaid, containing about 1000 acres, an.I being the same plan tation oil which William S. Beatty now re sides: they, the said minors, also claim that they derived the said property in tho fol lowing maimer, to wit: William J. Beatty married Clara Brown, tlieir grandmother, in the year 1845, aud that immediately after said marriage, the said William J. Beatty, received $12,500. tlie paraphernal property of his said wife. Clara Brown, and that the said Beatty did use and convert to his ow n use and benefit the said $12,500: and that tho said Clara Brown, the wife of the sanl William J. Beatty, died in the year 1817; aud the said minors further claim that they are entitled to be,reimbursed tlie said sum. with interest from judicial demand. Sworn ami subscribed before me this, the thirtieth da v of November, 1800. MICHAEL RYAN. J. II. C. Harlow, Probate Judge. We regard the registry of this written statement, detailing the facts and ekeum stances under oath of tlie claim iu which the legal mortgage of t-he plaintiff' is based, as a substantial compliance with the br-t and eighth sections of act No. 05 of tin* acts of 1800, entitled "Au act to carry into effei t article 128 of the constitution, aud to pro vide for recording all mortgages and privi lege*." The mortgage asserted bv the plaintiff is not the mortgage of a minor against his tutor, which the u r referred to lequires to lie registered according to sections two utui eleven of said act; out it is tlie mortgage accorded by law To secure the claim ot a married woman for paraphernal funds re ceived and appropriated by her husband. 1'he plaintiff claims by inheritance tin* debt and tip* mortgage dife by William J. Beatty to his wife Clara Brown, and in this proceeding seeks to recover the same. We think the certified eonv of the stat" ment was. properly received to prove tin registry, aud. that the bill of exception* to the ruling of the court receiving it was not well taken. We see no error in the judg ment. Judgment affirmed. Wyly, J. J. A. .S. Beokhan vs. John Henderson, heirs of A. I). Palmer, warrantors—Appeal from the district court of East Feliciana. In the year 13J1 or 1832, John A. I!«ek ham. the father of plaintiff, married Jane Coleman, who died in 1836. leaving an in fant child. Rosana Jane Beckham. On tin first ot November. 1833. he married Liu y L. Smith, who died on the second oi March, 1341. leaving no other descendant but plaintiff'; and. in September of the same year, plaintiff's father also died, leaving hut the two children, to wit; Rosana. by his first wife. Jane Coleman, and plaintiff'by ids last wife, Lucy Smith. In the year 1852 Rosana died, being at the time of her death about fifteen or sixteen years old. The plaintiff claims that ids father pur chased tins iauil during the lifetime ot his first Avife, Jane Coleman, aud at her death. Rosana. her only surviving child, became the owner of an undivided half of the same: and at Rosana's death plaintiff' in herited all of her riglris. It is uot claimed that plaintiff or his half sister. Rosana, was ever divested of the title to this land by any proceeding contradictory with either of them; but tiie answer alleges that the defendant purchased tiie land from A. D. Palmer on tin* twentieth ol March. 1853: that A. 1>. Palmer pur chased from Adam Palmer on the seventh of May. 184!*. and that Adam Palmer pur chased it at the probate sale of John A. Bet kliaui, deceased, and that the same was sold, under a regular decree of the court, to pay debts. This probate sale was made on the first of July. 1848. and the land was sold as tin* property of John A. Beckham, de ceased. The case was submitted to a jury, whose verdict is embodied in the decree of the court, recognizing the plaintiff as the owner of one undivided half of tin* land, aud fix ing the value of the improvements at $1000, one-half of which was to be paid by plaintiff. There was judgment in favor of defend ants against tin- warrantors for $2530, and laith the defendant and the warrantors de mand, ranking from the date of the recep tion of said sum as set forth. In argument tiiev rely upon the following grounds of defense for a reversal of the judgment 1. Prescription of ten veais. 2. That their title to the entire tract of land is perfect, they having m good faith purchased the same ;it judicial sale, made under aud iu conformity with a decree of a court having jurisdiction. 1. Upon the point of prescription they urge that the plaintiff was twenty-seven years old when the suit was filed, and that six years of prescription had unquestionably accrued in favor of appellant-; that from tin* death of Jane Coleman, in 1836, until 1855, when the statute was passed which, by operation of law, accepted the succes sion for plaintiff', with benefit of inventory (act of 1855, 111). her succession w as vacant; that prescription runs against a vacant suc cession: that Adam Palmer bought aud en tered into possession, July !, lsj.s. and that six years and eight months elapsed before the legal acceptance of the succession (or the plaintiff by the act of 1855; that this acceptance did not interrupt, but suspended prescription: and that, therefore, adding the two periods together, we have twelve years and eight mouths of time, during which prescription ran, betwei n tla* posses-ion of Adam Palmer aud the beginning ot the suit-. The answer to this ingenious but unsound argument is, that the succession of Jane Coleman is not vacant, as contended for. lhe authority cited to prove that it was, l oultuey vs. Cecil, 8 Louisiana. 321. was decided under the code of 1803. It that code were still in force, the defendant's syllogism would he less defective. But under tlie code of 13*2.5, the heir bc cotucs seized ot the possession bv operation , i ' , tlie moment it is' opened bv tlie death ot tin* ancestor, before taking any steps to put himseli iu possession, or ex pressing any- willingness to accept, anil even though ignorant that the succession has been opened in his favor (Civil Code, 934— . . tically identical with those tn the case at M; it was held th*4j|M^a'iEMwn i was_8ite' pended nU tlie f a ?FWallMVTOFJWSi 20. 1825, the date of promulgation of the Latter code. The res a*#* must therefore fail. 2. Upon the second point the appellants urge that the property iu di.-pute was in ventoried as the property of John A. Beck ham; that his administrator applied for aud obtained a decree to sell the same to pay debts ; that the decree came from a com petent court: that the sale was made and Adam Palmer became the purchaser: he sold to A. 1). Rainier, and A. D. Palmer to the present possessor, John Henderson, and that this decree, under which the probate sale was made, protects the purchaser in such a way as to give him title uot only to Hie portion of tiie laud which belonged to John A. Beckhams succession at the moment of sale, hut to the portion which at that moment belonged to some one else : and in support or this posit,on we are referred to the case of L ihnuue's heirs v-. Moreau 13 La. 431, and to other cum* which follow the principle there settled. We do not understand the decision cited, and tiie numerous decisions which have been bused upon it. to settle any other prin ciples than these: That informalities prior to a decree would not cause it to be a nul lity. the court having jurisdiction, anil that such a decree cures preceding irregulari ties, anil us to them, protect* the purchaser. But we hay e uot been refet red to any au thority, nor do «e think any ought to exist, declaring a decree of sale in tlie succession of A., and a sale thereunder of property which belongs, uot to A.'s sueces-or, but to B„ can preclude B. from showing the facts and recovering his own.
