San Francisco and Australia. Important Commercial Enterprise. Chinese on tko Plantations. MARTINIQUE. Outbreak Anions; tbe Ncki-o Pepnlntlon fflany Januraent Cai'lured or Killed. The brig Virginia, from St. Pierre, Martinique, brings direct news to the 81 Instant concerning serious on t break In the southern part of the island on the '22d ultimo. The arrival there of the news of the capitulation at Sedan and the proclamation of a republic In France was made the pretext of a general uprising. The leaders of the movement were a negro planter and his nine sons, who have already Riven the Government great trouble. Bands of negro insurgents, according to the OflMal Journal, scoured the country armed with guns, picks, pikes, sword-canes, sticks, and Htones, and carrying torches, set fire to houses and mills, and cansed general devastation wherever they went. The Governor, M. De Lolsne, at Fort de France, appealed to the Inhabitants to form a volun teer corps and quell the insurrection. In response to this appeal some CflO men Immediately came for ward, St. Pierre furnishing 200 men. The Governor then Issued a proclamation. The following towns were declared in a state of siege: Klvbre, Pllote, Marin Salute Aimee, Riviere Salee Uncos, Lameu tln, Salute Esprit, Salnte Lure, Diamant, Francois, Trinltc, Robert, tiros Alolre, Trois Ilets, and Van clin. On Saturday, the 24th, the detachment formed at St. Pierre arrived at Port de France, at 4 o'clock in the evening, and was immediately armed and sent forward. Other detachments rapidly fol lowed. The combined forces of marines, In fantry, and the gens d'armce brigade promptly put an end to the pillage and incendiarism. On the 26tb, the Infantry and cavalry attacked the residence of A u tier Mesncl, about twelve miles from the scene of the outbreak, which had bcon pillaged, and was then occupied by the Insurgents. After a short light the latter were overcome, losing eighteen killed and wounded and twenty prisoners. During the engagement Captain Emlle Komauet, a volun teer, was mortally wounded. He died a few hours afterwards. Some few hours after the foregoing encounter, the troops from Riviere, Pllote, and Saint ftsprlt, together with the volunteers, surrounded La Rojale and made fifty prisoners, among wham were even chiefs. The insurgents fludlng themselves beaten at all points, became utterly demoralized and fled in all directions, many of them being captured. A large number of them en deavored to reach the English Island of St. Lucta, but were cut off by the steamer Sonora and trie . schooner Rapid, which had been armed and sent to guard the St. Lucia channel. The riot being effec tually quelled, the Governor, on the 29th alt.. Issued an amnesty proclamation, pardoning all except the ringleaders. Since the outbreak, 200 men have been - killed and 1150 have been taken prisoners and are to be tried. Ntws Is brought by way of St. Thomas to the 11th inst. The French frigate Victolre had ar rived with BOO men on board to quell the disturb ances. The people are going back to their work, and confidence Is generally restored. SAN ritAXCISCO AX1) AUSTRALIA. An Important Copnnerrlal Enterprise. The San Francisco Bulletin of the 14th says: "Reliable information, in which we place the full est confidence, but which we were hardly at liberty to disclose before the sailing of yesterday's Austra lian steamer, assures us that various schemes of grand proportions are contemplated, aiming to con trol the future commerce of the Pacific. The great Transcontinental Kail way Companies, not content with their triumphs npon the land, are making a league with the sea. T he vast ocean which limits the westward outreach of the road says, not with a voice of authority, to these railway kings, hitherto shall ye come, but no further. They are prepared to sway their sceptre over the ocean also, and pro pose to run their termlnil fe riles from San Fran cisco Bay to China and Australia. "It is rumored that the Moses Taylor was detained yesterday for several hours to complete certain papers preliminary to the transfer of the Interests ' and privileges of the North Pacific Transportation Company in tne Hawaiian and Australian Hue. The transfer of Interest is said to Include the sale of the Moses Taylor to the new corapauv. It Is also un dcrstood that the "Webb line Is to be under the direc tion of four first-class busiuess men, whose names and financial strength are a pledge of their ability to make it a commercial success, in tins quauriiat jrai directory W. II. Webb is to represent the shipbuild ing anu snip-owning interest: Mr ueorge urev. former Governor of New Zealand, representing the English interest of our colonial cousins across the terry, and two prominent railroad men representing the Overland Railway interest. "It is manifest that with such a combination of strength, with a liberal subsidy from the American and colonial Governments, with possibly the addi tion of tne once rejected subsidy of $25,000 a year irom tne Hawaiian uovernnient, and with ail exist ing competition put quietly out of the way by an nonorauie purcnase, it win De easy to control the trade and forestall all rival companies. If they pur sue a uuerai policy, ana put on Brauncn, swirt steamers, well officered and well appointed, their success is assured, t he Pacific Ocean, compiia tively free from severe storms, subject to protracted calms, and well supplied with convenient coailns stations, is the ocean for steam, aud the new com- Fany have it in their power to afford such facilities or travel as shall make an otherwise tedious voyage a pleasure excursion. "We attach hardly 1fs importance to the rumor that the railroad kiues aim a so to secure a control ling Interest in the China lino, either by the imme diate purchase or stock, or ty starting au opposition by way of the Hawaiian Islands, which shall ulti mately secure the same results. "If it shall worthily represent the brca leBt views of commercial policy, that need aot necessarily be come a 'monster monopoly' which thus reaches oat In every direction, seeking to turn the entire trade and travel ofl the Pacific into the transcontinental route. The affiliating of the railroad and steamer interests means business.

Captain Cnrnnclian, Her Daring- Commander. Captain Carnaghan, the commander of the Cam bria during the lust ill-fated voyage, was one of the most experienced and skilful uavul officers vl3ltlng this pott. lie has been in command of vessels of the Anchor Line for several years, and was thor oughly conversant with the navigation of the Trans atlantic route to GlaKfow. lie was of low stature, stoutly built, acd having large, intelligent features bearing the Impress of His Scotch nativity. An instance of his daring character was afforded daring the voyage of the Columbia In December, lfct9. While in mid-ocean tho propeller broke loose in the shaft-pipe, renderiug the shirp and heavy metal blades, thus loosened, liable to be beaten about the stern-post of the vessel, and the plates of the counter to be stove In, or the stern post torn away. The only hope of safety rested in lashing the broken screw, but the heavy sea which was rolling rendered this apparently im possible. Captain Carnaghan, however, made the men lower him over the tail rail by a rope around his waist, while he guided with his own hands the neces sary operations. The object was to have the lash ings made fast upon the blades on both sides. The difficulty was to get the bights of the chains over each upper blade. Fourteen times the captain was lowered Into the waves before ha succeeded. The friends of Captain Carnaghan In mis city showed their appreciation of his daring on this occa sion by giving him in March, lte, a valuable silver wine set, which was formally presented by the Rev. Lr. Street, in presence of numerous friends, ou board the Columbia. Jv. I'. Tribune. A "burglar in skirts" succeeded in putting to flight a marshal and Lis aids, a few nights since, at Cincinnati, by brandibhing a knife in rather close proximity to their faces. SAS DOMINGO. The R ported renth f BaeaaventarK Baez. President ef Baa Uoatlaao. We publish to-day advices from San Domingo which render It probable that the turbulent career of President Baes has been brought to a sadden and violent termination. Buenaventura Baes was a mulatto, and was borrat Azaa in the year 1820. Ills father had taken, an active part la the Insurrection of 1 1808, and young Baez was thus born into public life, his unquestionable talents, not less than the great wealth of hi family, contributing largely to his rise to Important and re sponsible post' Ions. When Jimenes was elected President of San Domingo in 1849, to succeed San tana, he entered Into a conspiracy with Soulouque, the Haytlcn Emperor, who invaded the republic at the head of 20,000 men, but was overwhelmingly defeated by Santana on the 22d of April Baes had been the most Inti mate friend of Santana, and at the close of the war was elected the constitutional President, a position for which he was mainly Indebted to the influence of Santana. In I860 he was called upon to repel another invasion by Soulouque, and in 1853, having during the latter part of his term favored the cleri cal party, he was defeated for re-election. Santana, his successful competitor, he quarrelled with, as a matter of course. In 1866, Santana had become so unpopular that he was obliged to retire before the expiration of his term, and Baez was the second time elected to the Presidency, which he assumed October 6. But dis satisfaction was wlde-spreud, and Santana success fully headed a revolution by which he was driven from power and forced to leave the country, June 11, 18C8. Santana again became President, but he betrayed the republic, and the Spanish Invasion fol lowed. After the country had passed through terrible vicissitudes, Baez returned from his exile in France in the latter part of 18S5, and for the third time was proclaimed President of the turbulent republic. in June, isto, ne was again anvenirom power oy rimeuta), but only to be restored In January, 1S68. Since that time he had maintained himself at the head of affairs, bat was obliged to encounter a seri ous insurrection headed by Cabral and other turbu lent spirits. Negotiations for the lease of Samana Bay to the United States, and also for the annexa tion of the entire republic, were entered into by Baez, the circumstances attending these negotia tions being of too recent occurrence to need repeti tion in detail. Bnt before these could be complete there has been another turn in the wheel or fortune, and even If President Baez hal not met with a vio lent death, as reported, the country has again been given over to anarchy. Tbe Itcvolutlon Probable Assaanlnatloa of lift. ex. Letters from Port-au-Prince, by way of St. Tho mas, addressed to responsible parties render it pro bable that Baez has been assassinated. Such an occurrence would inaugurate another revolution In the island of Sau Domingo. The letters were writ ten at Port-au-Prluce, October g, at the iast moment of closing tbe malls. They state that Daez has dis appeared from San Domingo city. Whether he has fled or was assassin atert, is as yet uncertain. OLe writer alleged that Baez has committed sui cide ou account of the withdrawal of the American protectorate, and the embarrassing position into which he had fallen thereby. Another says: "A fepntation has just arrived to wait upon Mr. W. Deltnonte to request him to aeccpt tho Presidential chair, and he is now in my bouse waiting to receive the deputation. I can say no more, as this is the last moment for the mail.'' There are great rejoic lngB among the Cabral faction. RAILROAD "DISASTER. Accident Near Kt. r.ou!n-Tvo lien Killed and He vera I Others Wounded. The St. Louis Republican of October 18 says: A very serious accident occurred yesterday after noon, about 8 o'clock, near Kast St. Louis, on tbe Toledo, Wabash and Western Railroad, resulting la the killing of two ' men and the injury of seven others all employed as laborers by the company. The particulars of the deplorable affair are as lollows: A gang of men was sent out from East St. Louis, yesterday morning, to do some work in raising the track about eight miles from town, under charge of Mr. James Stout, foreman. The day proving wet, about 1 o'clock an engine with two flat cars was despatched to bring the workmen in. On reaching 'lie place the workmen crowded on board the flat ears and the foreman took a place on the engine with the engineer, Mr. Wortlll, and the train started, the engine pushing the cars ahead. The train with its jolly treipM of workmen ran at a speed of about ten miles au hour until between Venice and Kast St, Louis, about half way. Hsro some cows were observed on the track, and the en gineer slackened speed. The train had passed a portion of the drove when one of tbe men in front shouted out "ail right." The engineer hearing this started again, and a minute afterwards the acci dent occurred, and before the train had gained much additional speed, a cow, which had been running along one side of the track, suddenly veered about and jumped right In front of the train and so close to it that the engineer had barely time to hear the shout from the men and reverse the engine before the front car had caught the animal aud forced it down under the wheels. The cars slanted up aud then sprang from the track and rolled down the small embankment, while the other car also left the track aud wut down the other side. The engine re mained on the track. As the accident occurred some of tho men jumped from the cars, and, curiously enough, it is said that it was among this number that tbe loss of life and injury occurred. The train was running quite slow, but tho men In jumping oil' stumbled down the embankment, and before they could get out of the way the cars came crashing down upon them. In a moment there was a shocking tragedy enacted in the rural spot,and tbe pterclng cries of the crashed and mangled sufferers filled the air. The engineer and the foreman immediately went to work to extricate the bodies of the dead ant wounded, having summoned all the assistance pos sible. The cars were not much broken by the acci dent, and hence tbe bodies were taken out from the wreck without much dlfllculty. I'LAKTATIOX LADOR. The Chinese HiUUfactory to all Parties. From the A'. O. Times. The experiment of the Chinese on the Mlllaudon plantation has proved, in spite of many obstacles, satisfactory to all parties. An old planter who visited the place day before yesterday reports that they were doing work which negro laborers could not be got to do, to wit: Uetlng wood out of a swamp, where they had to wade and work all day above their ankles in water. They were cheerful, ac tive, and zealous to a degree which made our old planter sigh for a few such on his own plantation.' With such laborers, or a fair proportion of them, we could see revive our sugar production, and in these lowianas raise an tne sugar ana rice that would be needed for consumption in tho United States. The need of this now labor Is especially impressed upon filauters by the general negieot of the negroes of heir industrial employments In order to devote themselves to patriotic and political duties. The approaching election I. a most important epoch wit them. They have got public meetings, stump ora tory, torchlight processions, flags, drums, mass con ventions, and all the nonsense of political cam paigns on the brain, and are quite Indifferent to the sugar and cotton crops. The majorities for their ticket and candidates are of far more Interest to them than the yield of the plantations on which they are employed. This present election will in volve a waste of production amounting to millions of value. The demagogues who go about the coun try stlnlng up the "too susceptible hands" to "turn out" and tramp for miles to some meeting conve nient to a grocery or grog-shop, where beuztne wbikky la retailed at 6 cents a gill, are the Alarica aud Aittias of our State, who carry desolation in their march. It is a great folly to hope or pray for the extinc tion of these demagogues, or to seek to convince our colored brethren that they are getting beyond their depth, and will pursue their political aspira tions to their own ruin and destruction. This is a foregone conclusion. It will only be a little worse wttu them than with a large class of white people who give themselves up to politics, and forever afterward become drones and loafers, subsisting upon and taxing the honest labor of others. our planters must, therefore, to save themselves and the country from a decline or production, look to some oturr labor than that of our colored politi cians and siiU'rspaus China is the only quarter of the globe to hich we can resort to supply this de sideratum. It is encouraging to know that many of our large planters have already entered Into con tracts to procure these laborers. II hair of the con tracts already made are executed, there will be large increase of the number of Chinese la our state ny next January. SECOND EDITION THE WRECK OF THE CAMBRIA. Details of the Disaster. Probable loss of AU on Hoard WAR HEWS BY CABLE. The Mezieres Armistice Ended. The Siege of Hetz. Tbe Garrison Reported Starving. FROM EUROPE. Details of the T,onn of the Steamer, Cambria. London, Oct. 22. Late on Wednesday eve ning word reached Londonderry, Ireland, that the steamship Cambria, Captain Carnaghan, of the Anchor Line, which left New York on the 8th inst. for Glasgow, had been wrecked off the coast of Donegal. The information was brought to that city by the only survivor, John McGart land, a steerage passenger by the ill-fated ves sel. The intelligence was at first disbelieved, notwithstanding the vessel was overdue; but it has since been confirmed by a multitude of tele grams to the agenss, the press, and the friends of the passengers. ' The telegraph lines throughout Ireland have been sadly disarranged by the recent storms, and the following despatch, summarizing Mc Oartland's narrative, has just gotten through from Londonderry. The voyage from New York was generally fortunate, notwithstanding unpleasant weather prevailed most of the time until the night of Wednesday, October 19, be tween 10 and 11 o'clock. The Cambria was then under sail, and steaming rapidly. Suddenly, when all was apparently going well, she struck on Mistrallne Island, a small rocky island tea miles west of Donegal and thirty west of Londonderry. The vessel instantly began to fill throBgh large holes stove in her bottom, and fires were soon extinguished. It became evi dent that the steamer was hopelessly lost, and efforts were therefore directed to save the lives of the passengers who were massed upon deck. Four boats crowded with passengers were launched, and put off from the sinking steamer. McGartland entered one of these, and he saw no more of the ship or other boats. The weather was very heavy, and he thinks there is no doubt that all the boats were swamped, and that he is the only survivor. Almost instantly upon get ting into the boat it capsized and he lost consciousness; upon recovering he found himself in the sea, but grasping the gunwale of the boat, which had righted, he succeeded in getting in the boat a second time and found therein the dead body of a lady, dressed in black silk, McGartland was tossed about many hours, when he was picked up by the Enterprise, Captaia Gillespie, who cruised about the scene of the disaster for a long time ln'hopes of saving life and property. McGartland says that almost at the very time of the disaster the passengers and crew were congratulating themselves on the tempestuous voyage being nearly finished, and rejoicing in the fact that in one short hour more they would land at Moville. There were certainly one hun dred and eighty souls on board, and perhaps more. Later. Londonderry, Oct. 21 Midnight Vessels just returning from the scene of the Cambria disaster in the North Channel report that they discovered only a lot of broken spars and a few barrels of flour, which formed part of the-cargo. Nothing yet has been heard of the three smal boats which put out from the Cambria when she struck. Hope for their safety has not been entirely abandoned, but McGartland reports that a wind little short of a hurricane prevailed at the time, which it would be miraculous for such a small craft to weather. End of the Itlezleres Armistice. London, Oct. 23 The armistice at Mezieres ended yesterday (Friday) afternoon a( 3 o'clock. The bridge over the Meuse, near that placs, will be blown up by the Prussians to-day, but the bombardment will not be commenced until more troops and munitions of war can be brought up. The French force within the walls of Mezieres is computed at about five thousand men, who are fragments of various French regiments. Affairs at Aleta. Berlin, Oct. 23. The tftaata Anzeiger of yesterday, in its account of affairs before Metz, says: The sickness In tho armies is due to the uniformity of food. Dysentery is decreasing, and typhus will doubtless go with the present cool weather. Desertions from the garrison are increasing, the fugitives all giving the same reason "hunger." The investing force and the German armies generally receive abundant supplies of all sorts of cattle on foot. Thou sands of sheep have been sent to France for the Germans. v FROM NEW ENGLAND.

PARKER'S ESTATE. A Million Dollars Involved The I. a ir ef jtxecotora. Orphan1 OourtAUimn,r.J. In tbe matter of the estate of John Borden Parker, deceased, Judge Allison this morning read the fol lowing able opinion, settling several questloas of law of vital importance : The petitioner, Mrs. Maria H. 'Freeman, is a daughter descendant, and a legatee and devisee nnder his will, which was proved before the Itegln ter in this city, on the 80th day of November, 1865, and bad been proved in the county of Burlington, Btateof New Jersey, on the preceding 6th day of October. The executors having been cited by two of the heirs, filed two accounts with the Surrogate of Burlington county, showing that there was In their hands lor attribution, on the Hist a ay of December, 166'.', 11,457,894-68. The petitioner asserts that the assets which make on said balance are In the custody and control of the executors, one of whom resides In this city, and tne otner in uarusie. in tne state oi rennsyivama; and that she is domiciled In Philadelphia. The petitioner also alleges that nnder the will or her father she Is entitled to a portion of the afore said balance for distributloB, amounting to $J72,- 749-ST or tnereabouts ; sue therefore prays ror a citation to the executors, John Brown Parker and Frederick Watt, directing them to show cause why a decree should not be made; ordering them to transfer to her a portion of the balance for dlstrlbu. tlon which Is due to her. The answer assigns for cause against the order which tbe petitioner seeks to obtain, chiefly that a considerable portion of tbe assets can only be dis tributed by a decree of the proper court of the State of New Jersey, because, beln assets which wore held In New Jersey by the testator at tho time of his death, they are properly and of right distributa ble In accordance with the law of the State In which they lie, which Is also the law of the testator's domi cile. Mr. Parker at the time or bis death and for many years prior thereto being a resident of the aforesaid county of llnrl ngton. This brings up for decision the power of the Court to take Jurisdiction of the property of a decedent found In another forum, and bring it into Pennsyl vania for administration and distribution. Tbe powers and duties of executors are defined by, as they are derived from, the acts of Assembly relating thereto. That of 14th June, 1-33, Pur. I. Dig., 7C3, provides that the executors over whom Juris diction can be exercised are those who derive their authority from the "registers of the respective coun ties,' and in Prety's Appeal, 4 W. A S., 432, the Su preme Court have said, "Its provisions relate solely to persons acting In a fiduciary capacity by virtue of a will, or appointment by the register or Orphans' Court having jurisdiction of the estate of deceased persons." We do not allow an executor or administrator of a foreign State to come Into Pennsylvania, and by virtue of his authority derived from another Juris diction, collect the assets of the estate in Pennsyl vania, and carry them out of the State for admlnU tratlon and distribution. And where an executor removes from the State, the Orphans' Court having Jurisdiction of his accounts are authorized to vacate his letters testamentary, and award new letters, to granted by the register having Jurisdiction, upon such seennty as the Court may think propor. Sec tion 27 of the act of March 29, 1832. And in the cose of an administrator, non-residence is a cause of dis qualification by the express terms of the 27th sec tion of the act of March IP, 1B32. In Lukens' Appeal, 2 Barr, 169 the Supreme Court so ruled. By the sixteenth section of the act last cited, it is provided if any register shall grant letters testa mentary to any person not being an Inhabitant of this Commonwealth, without taking the proper boud and sureties, tbe letters so granted shall be void, and an executor acting under them shall la all respects be treated as an executor of his own wrong, anil tho register and his sureties are made liable to pay all damages which shall accrue to any person by reason thereof. These several acts of Assembly make it abun dantly clear that by our law an executor derives all his authority to collect and distribute the "assets of an estate which may be found within this Jurisdic tion, by virtue of the letters which are here granted, and that It Is of these assets alone that he is here called on to reader an account in this forum. We do not think the position a sound one, that be cause executors are Bubject to Orphans' Court as to any of the assets they become so to all. This would be to confound Jurisdiction and would Inevitably result in a conflict of authority, which for every reason of order, in tbe settlement of au estate, and of safety to the person charged with the performance of sucti a trust, should be avoided. It Is an argument which answers and defeats itself, of which the case before us Is a clear Illustration. Tbe t'stator died possessed or property situate In Ave different States. If the principle contended for by the petition is a sound one, it follows that we have as many separate Jurisdictions, each having control over a part of the assets or the estate, and by reason or such control, drawing to Itself all the remaining portions, and as to the whole making separate and possibly conflict ing decrees, both as to settlement and distribution. There are already two accounts tiled by these execu tors upon compulsion, at the instance of heirs and legatees in New Jersey, as well as in Pennsylvania; the former of these accounts has been audited and stated lythe .surrogate of liurllngton county, notice of which has been given by publication, and no objection having been made to them, a decree has been "entered allowing the same as reported. The respondents say they are advised by counsel, learned in the law In New Jersey, that said decrees are in accordance with the regular practice of the Orpnaus' Court of New Jersey, preliminary orders; that tbev are Judi cial determinations; that all the items with which the accountants charged themselves, as well as all of the Items for which tbey have claimed credit, and also that the balance resulting therefrom, are cor rect, and allowed to remain as stated ; but that said decrees are neither final nor distributive. It Is further stated by the respondents, in their answer, that It is tbe practice or the courts of New Jersey to make a final and distributive decree upon the motion of anyone in interest upon an account thus stated and settled. Taking this to be a correct statement of the facts and of tne law of New Jersey, it shows two things : that a portion or the assets which the petitioner asks may be brought into distribution here, so far as their settlement and allowance goes, have already passed under the jurisdiction and decree or a foreign tribunal; and also that that which Is asked to be done by us Mrs. Freeman can have done by applica tion to the courts of Uurlington county. It may be objected that in the accounts filed in New Jereey, assets whl;h were collected elsewhere are taken into those accounts, and that the same ob jection may properly be made there to distribution of the estate as settled by the decrees of the surro gate, that is now made to the claim of the petitioner to have all of the estate brought here for distribu tion. But It is a sufficient answer to this suggestion that the petitioner bad legal notice of the proceed ings in the courts of New Jersey, and that she has allowed tbe decrees of settlement to go without objection, and that if any Injury is to follow from th preliminary decrees as they now staud, it Is not too late lo apply to the orphans' court or nuniugtou count v for relief as asuinst the orders and determi nation of the Surrogate. Nor is the principle, which we believe to be tbe true one in a case ef this kind. Tuiiiimt autboaij for its support. The cases 'died by the counsel for the respondents are In affirmance of It, Bee Selectmen vs. Boy Is ton, 8 Mass. K., 8SI; Doollttle vs. Lewis, T John's Chan. Cases. 40-47; Dawes vs Boyleston, t Mass., 887: Parsons vs. Ly msn, SO New York K, (Court of Appeals), 103. The case which we have before us Is not to be confonnded with one in which assets have been col lected In the form of an auxiliary administration, In which It becomes a question or judicial discretion whether they shall be distributed in the jurisdiction In which they were raised, or remitted to the ad ministrator of the donilcil, to he disposed of there according to the law or the donilcll, which, as to personal property, la the rule or distribution every where. In a case or that kind, the question turns not on the fact or jurisdiction, but upon a determi nation, or whether In the exercise or a wine judicial discretion, the funds sought to be taken to another forum, shall be allowed to go there or not. This Is settled in Dent's Appeal 10, Harris 814; Stokely estate 7, Harris 476 ; Maitland vs. Wlreman, 8, Penna. V, 188, and in Harvey N. Richards 1, Mason 4os. The application before us is in effect to reverse the rule, which is, unless the tacts or a particular case, require a different coarse to be taken as to distribution, that after payment or debts and expenses, the assets shall be remitted to the administrator of the domlcll for dis tribution. This is the doctrine in Stokely s estate, cited above ; and In Dent's appeal, the application' to compel the auxiliary administrator to transmit assets to an administrator of the domicll who re sided In Washington, D. C.wns refused en the specialties of that case, one of which was the con sent of the original administrator to the appoint ment of the administrator in Pennsylvania, and tha all the claimants objected to a transmission ot the funds to Mr. Dent, In Washington. Tbe domlcll or the testator at the time of his death is to be regarded as the place ot the principal or original administration or his estate, and It this were a request to send tbe balance or the assets to New Jersey for distribution, it would be entitled to be regarded with greater favor than tbe one we are now considering, at least so far as the personal pro perty Is concerned, this kind of property having no situ In contemplation of law. It is attached to the owner's person, wherever he is, and when he dies It descends according to the law of succession which prevails at the place ef his domlcll. The respondent, John Brown Parker, asserts in his answer that the sum claimed by Mrs. Freeman is about $00,000 or 06,000 in excess of her entire In terest in the estate, which or Itself would render it impossible for us to make the order prayed for at this time; the true balance due to her must first be ascertained before there can be any order made to pay. The respondent also expresses his readiness to pay over to the petitioner the portion or Pennsyl vania assets due to her, upon her entering the requisite! security to protect the parties on remain der, wmcn sne nas not yet oone. i Other reasons might be assigned la support or the I view which we take or the claim or Mr. Freeman, but those already stated we deem or themselves suf ficient, and therefore dismiss the application.

The missile struck the wall and shattered into pieces. Craw ford had made threatening motions with his pistol, pointing It from one to tbe other of his prisoners, wlthont deterring them at all. Imme diately after the throwing or the spittoon, and while a man was advancing with a blackjack uplifted, he levelled the pistol at Nolen. There was great noise and confusion until Crawford elevated Ills hand a little, lowered his face and ran his eye along the muzzle, then everything was still and everv one Btood In suspense, and the pistol was tired. Nolen looked straight at Crawford, and ducked down to dotige the shot, and then tell. At tha tiring of the shot Crawford's pursuers abandoned their pursuit. At the time of our going to press the hearing had not been concluded. - AN IMPORTANT DECISION. The Indorsements of Married Women.
