O. ffixon, ex rel State of Louisiana, vs. James Graham, Auditor—The State of Louisiana intervenor.—Tl^e petitioners, in praying for a writ of error, represent that a final decree was rendered by the Supreme Court of Louisiana against petitioners, whereby they are deprived of their right to receive Iron* the State Auditor a warrant for $50,331 46; that they are by said judgment irreparably injured and aggrieved, and that they are advised and believe, that there is manifest error of law and wrong therein to their prejudice and rights, ana that said judgment is in violation of section number two, article one of the constitution of the United States; that they are desirous ot having said judgment revised, reviewed and corrected by the Supreme Court of the United States by writ of error, upon their complying with' the reouisitos, conditions and stipulations of law in such cases made and provided, and giving bond as the court may order, and to its satisfaction. Wherefore petitioners pray the oourt to grant them a writ ot error, returnable to the Supreme Court of the United States at its next term in Washington, District of Columbia, on their giving bond according to law and as the court may direct, con ditioner! as the law directs, and that the due and proper notices, citations and ser vices be made thereof on the defendant and the intervenor, or their counsel of re cord, according to law, and for all general and equitable relief. Upon these representations, Judge Brad ley issued the following order: A writ of error is allowed in this case as prayed for and according to law, return able to the Supreme Court of the United States on the first Monday of December next, at Washington, D. C., the petitioner giving bond in the sum of one thousand dollars, with good and solvent security, conditioned as the law directs. Thomas J. Burke vs. Louis Tregre, third opposition and injunction of Alphonse 31 il tenberger—The petition ot Thomas J. Burke, a resident of the parish of 8t. John the Baptist, shows that on the nineteenth of May, 1870, a final .judgment was rendered against him by the Supreme Court of Louisiana, being the highest court of law of the State of Louisiana, in which a decision could be had in a certain suit in which the said Thomas J Burke was plaintiff and appellent, and Louis Tre f re, defendant. aDd Alphonse Milten erger, third opponent and appellee, wherein was drawn in question certain im munities, rights and privileges claimed by the plaintiff, Thomas J. Burke, under the constitution and statutes ot the United States, and that he is agrieved by the said final judgment, and is ad vised that there is error therein to his prejudice, and is de sirous that the same ouiy be re-examined by the Supreme Court of the United States. Upon these representations, Justice Bradley allowed a writ of error, as prayed for. C. C. Sampson vs. M. Gillis and Samuel G. Ferguson.—The petition of Mrs. Hanuah H. Sampson, widow of C. C. Sampson, de ceased, respectfully represents that her late husband, Calvin C. Sampson, a resident of the city of New Orleans, brought suit against'M. Gillis and Samuel G. Ferguson, residing in the city of New Orleans, ana lately doing business therein as commercial copartners under the name and style of Gillis Sc Ferguson, on a draft dated New Orleans, November 16, 1861, and payable six ^months after date, for the sum of $1268 44, with eight per cent interest from maturity, drawn by Samuel G. Ferguson " on and accepted by Gillis A Ferguson; that it was alleged in said petition, filed by her husband, that said M. Gillis and Samuel G. Ferguson lett the city of New Orleans aud went into the lines of the so-called Confederate States, where they remained until about the tenth of August, 1865, and petitioner was unable to bring suit against them on said note dur ing said time, most of which facts are shown by the defendants' answers to inter rogatories, especially their absence in the so-called Confederate States lines for sev eral years, and one of them in the Con federate States service. • Petitioner further represents that said suit was brought in the Sixth District Conrt of the parish of Orleans on the twenty third of June, 1868, and citations issued on defendants on the twenty-fourth day, of June, 1868, aud that petitioner's husband. C. C. Sampson, died in August. 1868, and petitioner, after having been duly recog nized as widow in community with her said husband and natural tutrix of her minor children by the Second District Court for the parish of Orleans, applied to the honorable Sixth District Court for the parish of Orleans and became a party plain tiff in said suit in place and stead of her de ceased husband. Petitioner further represents that the said defendants filed a plea of prescription in the Sixth District Court in bar of petition er's suit, which plea of prescription was sustained bv said court, and judgment ren dered in favor of said defendants and against petitioner, with costs, and on ap peal the Supreme Court of the State of Louisiana also sustained the plea of pre scription which had been set up by said de fendants in defense of petitioner's action, aud affirmed the judgment of the said Sixth District Court, which said judgment has be come final. Petitioner further represents that she claimed in said suit an exemption from the laws of the State of Louisiana upon the Subject of prescription during the late re bellion under and by virtue of the act of Congress entitled "an act in relation to the limitation of certain actions," approved June 11, 1864. That the Supreme Court of the State of Louisiana, under the facts of the case, the defendant having been in tbe States in rebellion and petitioner residing in New Orleans, within tbe federal lines, could not have decided against petitioner, except by a violation of tbe rights secured to plaintiff by said act of Congress. That petitioner lias been illegallv de prived of a right secured to her by said act of Congress, which was specially set up and urged by her before tbe Supreme Court of tbe State of Louisiana. Petitioner further alleges that there was manifest error in the said decision of the Supreme Conrt of the State of Louisiana, which will work to her irreparable injury, unless she estn be relieved therefrom by a writ of error to the Supreme Court of tlie State of Louisiana. Upon these representations a writ of error was allowed as prayed for. In the case of Charles Case, receiver of tbe First National Bank of Louisiana, vs. Richard Taylor, which, ou tbe tenth of April last, was decided by tbe Supreme .Court of Louisiana in favor of defendant, a -writ of error was refused by Justice Bradley. Eighth District Court—Important Decision Touching the Liability of Proprietors of Front Renl Estate for Street Im provements—Motion for a Sew Trial in the Case of Ksnard vs. the City—The Question of Public Printing. Iu the case of Esnard et als vs, the city of New Orleans, in which tbe verdict rendered by tbe jury was set aside by Judge Dibble last week, tlie couusel for plaintiffs has made a motion for a new trial. Metropolitan war rants to tbe amount ot $86,001) are involved in this suit. Judge Dibble has delivered an oral opin ion in the case of Ready et al vs. city of New Orleans and J. J. O'Hara, a case which in volves important questions concerning the liability of front proprietors to be taxed for street improvements. The opinion is as follows: In tbe case of J. Ready et al vs. the city of New Orleans and J. J. O'Hara, there are several plaintiffs in the action, and they own property fronting on Locust street, be tween Washington street and Felicity road. It seems that in 1869 there was a petition addressed to tbe Common Council of the city of New Orleans by a number of the front proprietors on the street, asking that tbe above portion of the street be shelled and graded, and in accordance with the A«uue tie city awarded the contract to J. J. O'Hara, on June 8. 1869. He performed the work, and proceeded under the law to col leet the amount due by the front pro prietors. , Plaintiffs bring action to have ex tract and ordinance under which it TO made declared null, alleging that the ordi nance is unconstitutional, because the tax thereby imposed is not uniform, and that tbe work is injurious to tbe property: to gether with other reasons. Bnt they abandon these grounds and rest their complaint on section 119 of the city charter of 1856, under which the contract was awarded. 'The section in question pro vides that "one-fourth of the front proprie tors on any street may petition for the '.hell ing and grading of any portion thereof, and that if one-half of front proprietors do not object, the city shall order the work to be done at the expense of the front proprie tors." . . . ., Plaintiffs insist that the meaning of the section is, that the petition must be signed by one-fourtb of tbe front proprietors on tfie whole street, and that property holders on that portion of the street requiring shell ing, etc., have no power to require tbe work. I do not think this is the correct Waning of the language of section 119. It provides that front proprietors may petition for the shelling and grading of a portion of the street, and then says, if one-half of front proprietors do not objeet, tbe work shall be done. The reading of this section conveys to my mind the idea that it was intended to au thorize such a petition, to l>e addressed either by persons fronting on tbe whole length of tlie street, or by jiersons fronting on the portion to be improved. And such is the opinion of the Supreme Court in the case of McKee, for the use of, vs. W. H. Brown (recently decided) in which is in volved the construction of the charter of the late City of Jefferson. The court held that under the charter of the City of Jeffer son, persons fronting on a portion of a street could not petition for improvements, but that owners upon the whole length must sign. Iu that case, however, the court re marked, the charter of the city of New Or leans made use of different, language. (See section 119, city charter, 1856). The charter of 1870,has similar provisions. There is no reason why this different power should not be conferred on the city of New Orleans. The facts seem to justify this opinion, and it is clearly the opinion of the Supreme Court expressed in the above decision, that the charter of the city of New Orleans did authorize a petition to be addressed by proprietors fronting on a por tion of the street, aud authorizes the city to make a contract in accordance with the petition. Tlie defendant, O'Hara, is made a party to the suit, reconvenes and claims amount due him for work done under tbe contract. There is no dispute as to the correctness of his claim. The judgment will be, dismissing the ac tion of tbe plaintiff's, . and in favor of O'Hara, on reconventional demand against the several plaintiffs. New Orleans Republican Printing Com pany rs. City of New Orleans, et als. On motion of George S. Lacey, City At torney, and upon suggesting that tlie in junction herein granted is a great incon venience to the citv, aud prevents her from exercising her legal rights, and upon further suggesting to the court that the acts complained of by plaintiffs in their petition for an iiy unction are not of such a character as will work an irreparable injury to said plaintiffs, and upon turther suggesting that tbe city of New Orleans is dispensed in all cases from giving bond and security, it was ordered that plaintiffs show cause, on tbe twenty-first of June, at 10 A. M., why tbe injunction herein is sued should not be set aside under article 307, Code of Practice, without giving bond and security, the said city being bound to pay all suet damages as tbe plaintiffs in injunction may have sustained, if a defini tive judgment be rendered against her in this suit. Sixth District Coart—Judge Cooley Dis regards the Re-appointment of Re corder Houghton by Governor War moth—Explosive C'oal Oil. In the case of Atwell, charged with being a fugitive from justice from Kentucky. Judge Cooley this morning discharged the pris oner upon the ground that J. P. Houghton is not the Recorder of the First District, and that whether we regard the decision of the Sixth District Court or Houghton's res ignation. he was out of office; that the city charter made ample provisions as to how the office should be filled. Judge Cooley stated to Colonel Field, the counsel for the prisoner, that it was unnec essary to consider the various points raised by him. as he did not regard any commit ment signed by him as worth the paper on which it is written. In the case of Ann Ryan and Mary Ann Haley, her daughter, vs. the Septoline Oil Company, suing for $6000 damages for in juries caused by an oil explosion, the jury has returned a verdict awarding Mary Ann Haley $1000 and Ann Ryan $250. Fourth District Court. In the suit of John C. Golding vs. John P. Casey, the jury has returned a verdict in favor of defendant. The jury also found a verdict in tlie case of Charles D. Everett vs. Robert Stewart Deance. in favor of plaintiff for tbe amount of $500, with interest. On Saturday, the twentj-fourth instant, cases will be called in this court for tbe first two weeks in November. United States Circuit Court—lion. E. H, Durell, District Judge, Presiding. In tbe case of Sumner, Hughes Sc Val lette vs. Holdane Sc Co. et al, it was or dered that the sum in controversy, $11,817 37, deposited in the Bank of America to the credit of R. Wells, syndic of the creditors of the Belleville Iron Works Company, and de scribed in complainants' bill of complaint, is subject to the complainants' privilege as lessors, and of right belonged to complain ants, and should be paid to them as lessors of tbe Belleville Iron Works mentioned in said bill; and it appearing that tbe fund, under the order of this court, has been in vested in five-twenty bonds of tbe United States bearing interest in gold, and that the same bonds are on deposit in the Louisiana National Bank to abide tbe decree of this court, it is further ordered that said five twenty bonds, amounting to $10,800, and resulting from the conversion of said tund, as well as any surplus or fraction thereof as may not have been so converted, be paid over and delivered to the complainants: that the defendants, Holdane & Co. aud James Jeffries be aud they are peiq*etually enjoined from asserting any claim to said fund, and that they pay all the costs of this suit. In the case of James E. Dunham vs. John Spicer, on motion of counsel for the plaintiff, and on suggesting to the court that the sum of $17,328 93 wits deposited in the registry of this court, namely, the First National Bank of New Orleans, and that said sum is applicable to tbe payment of tbe judgment rendered in this case in favor of plaintiff for $5900, inclusive ot in terest and costs; that a dividend of fifteen per cent on the deposits in said bank bad been declared, and is now, subject to the order of this court, it was ordered that tbe City National Bank and Whitehead Sc Co., who pretend to have a claim upon said fund, show canse ou the seventeenth in stant why the judgment of said Dunham should not be satisfied out of said funds, pro tanto. Condition ol the Colored Race in the South. (Horace Greeley's Letters to the N. Y. Tribune.] The planters who were formerly slave holders have uniformly assured me that their ex-slaves are working better than they expected, and better this year than ever be fore. I can not recollect a single dissent from this averment. Most of the old plan tation hands either rent lands, paying so much cotton per acre, or they work them on shares—say, half the crop when they find their own'team and seed, and one-third when these are found by the landowner. And it has been found far more satisfactory to divide the crop at tbe ginbouse or on the dock, letting each market for himself, than to have tbe landowner sell it in bulk and account to tbe cultivator for bis share of tbe proceeds. Tbe negroes, keeping no ac counts and not very careful iu their habits, usually found, on settlement, that they bad eaten up their -crop while it was growing, and were often in debt after it bad been sold and accounted for. No doubt, they were sometimes cheated; but, even when they were not, they supposed they were. Especially when, as in 1866, the crop was a failure, and their share of it did not repay the landowner Ills advances, they could*not understand that, while "old master" had all there was, they had less than nothing. The system was baa »P its results were evil. It is far bet ter where they tove BP credit, advances, and struggle through the year as they can, so that their share of the crop, largo or small, is all their own when it is ready for sale. On the crop of >869 those who worked on this basis generally made money; on that of 1870, which sold much lower, they made little or nothing; this year, I am as sured, they generally grow corn as well as cotton, hoping to make their own bread and meat, and leave their cotton clear. Some will succeed in this; others will fail; bnt, taken in tbe average, I judge that the freedmen of the cotton States aro this day in as good circumstances as the hired workers who till the soil of any European country. Aud I am confident that the plantation laborers are rarely or never in want of employment or of homes. It there were profligate, idle, pilfering fel lows among them, they have drifted away to the cities, or to some other country than this. There is no place for such on planta tions, and very few of them could stay there it they would. The old slaveholders, on whose testimony I have mainly relied thus tar. ndd that the black women are not doing so well as the men, but are mainly intent on finery and idleness. The children (the planters add) rule their parents, and do little or nothing; so that when this generation of field-hands, trained to steady work as slaves, shall have died off, matters will have changed for the worse. In opposition to this, I proffer the testimony of my eyes. To say that I have seen many more black women than white persons plowing and hoeing in the corn, cotton and cane fields of Louisiana and Texas would be saying little; I am sure I saw half as many black women as black men working tbe crops: and in many cases father, mother and one or two children were at work together. On tbe whole, I must regard the question "Will tlie niggers work f" satisfactorily answered. The four and a quarter million bales of cotton grown in the United States in 1870 are not to be gainsaid. Samuel Dunn, of Livonia, Slieliigan. was. eighteen years ago, a bard drinker and to bacco chewer, but formed a resolution at that time to drop both habits, and lias kept it ever since. He has, however, lain in bed all that time, never leaving bis room nor having liis clothes on, though he has not been sick a day, nor taken any medicine. He is now eighty years old, with flesh as pnlpy as an infant's, and just as good an appetite as he ever had. AUCTION SALES. By Neville & Van Solingen.
