cause of a refusal on the part of the latter,

has rendered a deeision overruling the ex
ception of the defendants that there was no
cause of action and ilia! the city was not re
sponsible for the acts ol said Bowen.
The judge, in his written opinion, says:
That in accordance with article '.firt of the
Devised Statutes, ••counsel for a person at
t used of a crime shall have free access to
him at and during all reasonable hours."
That whoever violates this right must he

The telegram was an order for a certain

appears that, h, obedience to the telegram,
tin hands were sent forward, hut that upon
arrival the contracting party declined to en

the contract, in this case some $1100 art

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.

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

not from the date ot its promulgation. Judge |

an. i i. anient decreeing the liability of the
deli ndant in the l'uil amount asked for in

ami j
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

Ike contract is usurious and au extortion.
2. He admits the indebtedness for one-hail'
the supplies, but objects to the commission

3. Ilo alleges error in the mortgage, which
ho sii^s should h.i' o boon but for $ 3001 ).

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.

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.

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
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.

J. II. C. Harlow, Probate Judge.
We regard the registry of this written
statement, detailing the facts and ekeum

the legal mortgage of t-he plaintiff' is based,
as a substantial compliance with the br-t

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
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
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
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

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. Jugmeut affirmed.
