The recent brilliant successes of the federal
armies in Ttnncxsce have added new laurels to
the already brilliant fame of th. ir commander,
Msjor-Generul George n. Thomas.
General Thomas was born In Southampton
rotiaty, Va., on the 31st of July, ISltl. His family
were wealthy and educated, and lie was dostined
for the profession of the law. lint in 18 !(i he re

While theie he was breveted First Lieutenant for

baniiago. Alter enjoying a six m nr.hs' leive of
absenc , Caplain Thomas w as placed in couimiud
ot Company U, 3d Artillery, and ordered to
Florida to tnke part in quelling auituer uprising
of Indians. In IS i0 he was ordered to Boston on
garrison duty ut Fort Independence, and arrived
iu January, lbol.
In March be was relieved and assignod to duty
as instructor of artillery and cava.iy at West
l'oint. Hero he remained until the summer of
lH.'xi. In lb "4 be went to Fort Yuma, California,
iu command of two co.npauies of artillery.
Congress soon after autnoiucd an incroase
of the regular army, and Captain Thomas was
transferred to another branch of the service,
receiving a commission as junior Major in the
2d Cavalry. Ha joined his rciriiuout at
Jetrerson Barracks, Missouri, iu September,
lH.i'3, aud proceeded with it to Texas,

Cm ht op Common Pi.p.an Judge) Thoma
s' n and I.unlow - kmike vs. Mathers This was
acme Mated, l'luliitill 'claimed on twogrounl
reit deeds, dated OctipHT 12, 1771, in each of
which thire was a reservation of a ground rent of
twi nty-inie pure silver coined Spanish pieces of
en ht unit one-third of such piece of eight,
each piece of eight weighing seventeen
p' iinvweigbts and six grains, or ao inu a of the
lawful Diuuiv ot the province of Pennsylvania,
ns shall tie siilllcient from time to liuiii tJ "pur
chase or piocure" the same, with a covou.int for
the psymotit of such cut by tho grantee, his
lnirs, and assigns, iu thu same words as the
reset vai ion.
At the lime the annual rent fell duo, October
12, lKtili, the defendants, who were thou owners
of ti.e lots, out of w hich the ground rea's were
re-t rved, tendered twenty-one dollars and ouo
th rd in legal tt nder notes of the United Sta es a
satisfaction of each of said annual rents. Plain
till refused to accept the tender.
The case tted gave the value of apiece of
eight on October 12, 1S(1:(, the highest value since,
in id the value at the time the case was sub nilted,
and on argument the plaintiff claimed that he
was entitled to a judgment for the highest value
of the piece of eight between the time when tho
renta lell due and the time of trial.
Judge Thompson, observing that the case did
not call for any examination or decision npou the
constitutionality of tho legal tender acts of Con
gross, held
1. That tho covenant waa not satisfied by the
tender of the notes ; Ibat the reservation was of a
particular kind of coin, with the alternative of It
value in lawful money and that tho ground
landlord was entitled cither to the particular kind
of coin, or its real value in lawful money.
2. That the measure of damages was the value
of the coin at tbo time tho rent fell due, and that
the plaintiff couid not recover more on tho ground
that that description of coin, had since been worth
Judge Ludlow concurred In the judgment, aud
called attention to the peculiarity of the reserva
tion, in it alternative clause, calling for lawful
money of the Province (now the State) of Penn
sylvania. Without considering the question of
the power of Congress 'o provide what money
shall be a legal teodei In payment of dobt
throughout the United State, under the Cousti
tulioa of the Slate of Pennsylvania, It Legisla
ture can make nothing but gold and silver a legal
tender. .
The judgment was for the valae of the parties
Ur eoiu on October 12, 1M3, with interest to date
of judgment. Longstreia for plain tUf; William
W. W later for dsfeudant.
