oFFTcTAL^ToiJ^fNATr^l^TlTE^LrfjrTE^^TAT¥s OFFICIAL JOURNAL OF NEW ORLEANS THE COURTS. Eighth District Court—Judge Dibble on .Metropolitan Warrants—His Opinion of Juries in Clril Cases-The Verdict of the Jury Set Aside—The Contested Recordership of the Fourth District New Trial in the Chattanoogn Railroad Bond Controversy Refused. In the case of Esnard vs. the city, m which same $86,000 in Metropolitan Felice warrants are involved, the jury last week returned a verdict to the elieet "that the plaintiffs are bona fide holders of the war rants in question, that the warrants are genuine and to he recognized as lawiul obligations, and should be paid." The ver iliet was taken under advisement by Judge Dibble, who, yesterday, delivered the lol lowing opinion on the same: The plaintiffs, who are holders of a large amount of Metropolitan Police warrants, brought this action to compel the city of New Orleans to make provision for their payment. As a means to that end a wiit of injunction was prayed for, and the eonrt was asked to restrain the Council of New Orleans from passing any ordinance or resolution until they shall have provided means for the payment of these warrants. The petitioners'nrged that the relief should be granted, by rem-on of the provisions ot section five of act No. 64, special session of 1870. This statute made it the duty of the councils of the municipalities, and the police juries of the parishes within the Metropoli tan Police District to provide means for the payment of the proportion of the expenses due from each municipality and parish for the Metropolitan Police. The fifth section aforesaid declares that all ordinances and resolutions passed by said councils and po lice juries shall be null and void until such provision shall have been made In the cast ot Lafon vs. Administrator Waltoh, I examined the history of those warrants issued by the Board of Commis sioners of Metropolitan Police. The action was brought to compel the city officers to receive certain of such warrants for taxes due the city. 1 had occasion to construe section twenty-seven of the act No. 74 of 1868, under wtich the issue was made, and the acts No. 44 of 1869 and No. 41 of 1870, requiring the city to receive the warrants for taxes. I fonud from that examination that the city of New Oi'e ns was obliged to receive the warrants tendered in payment for taxes, and judgment was rendered accordingly. The dispute in that case, as in this, was in relation to the obligation of the city to receive the warrants issued during the first fiscal yearof the Metropolitan Police, end ing September 30, 1869. I found from the several statutes aforesaid—and so ex pressed in the decision—that the city Vas obliged to retire such warrants by receiv ing them for taxes, to the amount of the quota of the expenses of the police for that year due from the city. lu the answer of the city of New Orleans to the present suit, several defenses are set up. The plaiutitt's ownership of the war rants is denied, the genuineness of the in strument disputed, and it is alleged that flio city is not obliged to pay them or pro vide for their payment. It was especially urged, and particularly insisted upon dur ing the trial, that the city has already paid the amount of the assessments lor the years 1868 and 1869. A jury trial was prayed for. and a trial by jury was liad. Two days were oceu pied in'taking the testimony. In charging the jury, at the request of counsel for the plaintiffs, the decision given in the Lafon case was read as the opinion of the court as to the law of the case. The jury, after some delay, and after re turning for instructions as to the form of a general or a special verdict, found the fol lowing: "We, the jury, find the facts in the case—first, that the plaintiffs in the case are bona fide holders of the warrants that were produced in court; second, from evidence of witnesses and the stub book we have come to the conclusion that they are genuine, and to he recognized as lawful ob ligations, and should be paid." This verdict, though appearing to l>e gen eral, is and was brought in as a special ver dict upon the facts. It is, therefore, left to the court to give judgment upon these facts and the law applicable to them. C. P., arti cle 519. The ease wai thereupon taken tinder advisement. C. P., 542. When the verdict is special cn the facte of the cause, those facts which the jury have found are consider! d as true, and the" judge must render the judgim n accordingly. C. P., 521. In making lip his judgment the judge, I take it, has nothing to do but apply the law. He has no power to review the finding of the jury, or to determine other facts which they may have neglected to find. Therefore, if the facts found are not sufficient to authorize a judgment for the plaintiff, there must be judgment for de fendant. This judgment against the plain tiff maf be a non-suit. 7 M., 569.' After considering the pleadings and the several statutes which must be construed, I am satisfied that the jury have failed to find the fact which is material to a judg ment for the plaintiffs. Has the city of New Orleans actually paid the amount assessed against it to sustain the Metropolitan Police during the year which ended September 30, 1869, the jury have not determined. I have no power to do so. Under the jurisdiction of our State the trial by jury in a civil case is a nondescript affair.* I'lie system of jury trials is from the common law, but except in our criminal jurisprudence we have only preserved the name and certain forms. At the common law it is said that no man shall be deprived of his life or property except bv a judgment of his peers; the petit jury was made t« symbolize the country. The idea that the officers of the law could not pronounce judgment upon the issues of fact essential to a final judgment found ex pression in the seventh amendment of the constitution of the United States: "And no fact, tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re examined in any court of the United States than according to the rules of the common law." The verdict of the jury finally deter mines the facts. In Louisiana it is not so. We say to the jury in a general way: "Gen tlemen, you are the judges of the law and the facts," while in truth they are left to determine neither. The superior court re views the facts and the law, and frequently sets aside the verdict of the jury because both the law and the facts have lieen mis apprehended or perverted. I mention this only to show that although the judgment now to be entered will he one of non-suit, the ultimate decisiou of the cause luay be a fiual determination of the issue. It is therefore ordered, adjudged and de creed that there be judgment against plain tiffs as in case ot nonsuit; that the case be dismissed, and that the plaintiffs pay costs. Judge Dibble has refused a motion for a new trial in the case of C. H. Slocoinb et al vs. Graham, Auditor, et al. The reasons assigned are the (Same as (hose expressed in the recent opinion delivered by the court on the first trial of the cause. William Weber vs. E. A. Billings.— This suit, in which a rule nisi had issued on the application of Recorder Weber on A. E. Billings, to show cause why he should not he enjoined from interfering with him in the discarge of his duties as the Recorder of the Fourth District, has been discon tinued. His attorneys. Braughn &. Buck, have filed a petition praying for a mandamus against Simeon Iielden, Attorney General, to compel him to institute suit iu (lie name of the State and join relator, William Weber, a person interested as party plain tiff with the State, against A. E. Billings, as intruder and usurper of the office of Recorder of the Fourth District, city of New Orleans. The petition alleges that relator has given due information of said A. E. Billings' ille gal intrusion, and that lie required the At torney General to bring suit iu accordance with act No. 199 of the acts of 1868, better known as the "Intrusion act," that the At torney General refused to bring said suit, although it is made his express duty in such cases to sue in the name of the State when requested to do so. Hence the application for a mandamus to compel him to do so. Sixth District Court. Before ajury in this oourt is being tried 4he f&W of Thom#} v«. the city, ia which the plaintiff claims $23,093 28 on a contract to deliver oyster shells to the city. Seventh District Ceeru Joseph Walker, a resident of the parish of St. Charles, about four mile6 above Ken nerville, has tiled a suit against the Louisi ana Levee Company, claiming $7590 as damages in consequence of the overflow ot bis riee plantation by reason of the Bonnet Carre crevasse.

Lipscomb joint executor with Irs. Freret, and iu the event of Mr. Lips comb declining to serve, appoints "his old friend" Theodore Thieneiuan. Th-re are also private instructions left for his ex ecutors. United States Circuit Court. In the ease of Myra Clark Gaines vs. F. I). Delacroix, a decree was rendered by Judge Bradley iu favor of the plaintiff. The bill of complaint charged that defendant had in his possession, in the latter part of the jear 1813, certain slaves, which were the property of the complainant's father, and for the value of which property, with accru ing interest, suit was brought. The suit failing in the lower court, was appealed to the Supreme Court of the United States, where judgment was rendered in favor of complainant. Upon the mandate of the Su preme Court, Judge Bradley rendered a decree whereby the case has been referred to Hon. J. B. Weller, master in chancery, to report upon, at the earliest time, the amount with interest which will be due the com plainant uuder the judgment of the Supreme Court. In the case of H. Fellrath vs. the Liver pool, London and Globe Insurance Compa ny, tried before Hon. E. H. Durell, a verdict was rendered in favor of plaintiff for the sum of $34tiO, with legal iuterest from judi cial deniaud till paid. Commissioner Weller's Court. A man named Wright, first mate of the steamship Lord Lovell, was arrested upon the charge of hindering and obstructing Deputy United States Marshal Ayres in the discharge of his duty as an officer. The mat ter grew out of a seizure of the Lord Lov ell, which Mr. Ayres Went on board to exe cute, when Wright refused to reuder pos session of the vessel. The accused was held to bail to answer for the oflense before the United States Circuit Court. Charles Miller was arrested, charged with violation of the internal revenue laws by having iu his possession a lot of cigars not stamped in accordance with the inter nal revenue regulations. He was held to bail. The case of the crew of the bark Caribou came up for trial. It appears that the crew had signed shipping articles at Liverpool for a two years' voyage, bur, before the vessel left the Mersey, they became dissat isfied, and the result was that the captain agreed to discharge them at New Orleans if they still remained dissatisfied. They claimed this promise which the captain accorded, but refused to pay the wages claimed. Judgment was given against the vessel, The Iberville South says of the crops: The very rainy season which has occurred for some time back has come very hard upon the crops. Field works have been suspended, and very few planters can now say that their fields are not grassy. It will require much work to destroy the grass, and in order that this may be done, there mnst be dry weather for a couple ot weeks at least. With two or three weeks of dry weather the crops may yet he made com paratively good. The Terrebonne Republican says: Notwithstanding the immense quantity ot rain that has fallen since our last issue," we learn that little damage has been done to the growing etops in this parish, and with dry weather for a few weeks, our planters will have no reason to complain, and they will look with confidence to an abundant yield of sugar, corn, etc., which will make them and all around them happy and pros perous. So far, the prospects are very satis factory. It is announced that Miss Kate Stanton will enter the lecture field next fall with a lettuce entitled "Whom to Marry." As she has not been married, there can be no doubt of her ability to lecture on the above theme. LEGAL NOTICES. THE STATE OF LOUISIANA. SEVENTH DISTRICT COURT FOR THE PARISH OF ORLEANS.
