Washi.vcjTo.v, May 23, 1877.
The following decision has been reuderod by the
United States Supreme Court:?
No. 239. William X). Stewart, administrator, et al.
vs. Kxrklol Salamon at al. ?Appeal Iroiu tbo Circuit
Court ol the Coiled Slates for too Southern District ol
Georgia. ? i bis: Case is brought to loroclosc a mortgage
executed by oua James Stewart, now deceased, upon
curiam real property situated in the State of t.uorgia,
to xecuro bis promissory nolo for $-H.UDO, and lor the
sale of the mortgaged pri'intsrs to puy the amount
due thereon. It does not diller iroiu ordinary suns of
foreclosure in equity, oxcopt In making tenants of the
proper.y partton to prevent tbein, pending the litiga
tion, from paying over rente to tbu administrator or to
the lieirs ut the deceased, among whom, it is alleged,
the administrator has unluwiully partitioned tbo prem
ises. 'I lie note ol Stewart bears dale on the sill of
January, 1808, ?ud is payable to the order ot Allen A
Cuits in twelve months after uaie, with interest. It
was made lor the accoinmo jaiion of Cutis, who in
dorsed it to lloruecai, to whom also ino mortgage was
executed upon inn purchase of certain bonds of the
Georgia and I'enancola Kuilroud Company,
in March, IMS, $li>.3?26 were credliod upon
tbo Lote. Subsequently tbo nolo and mort
gugo aero assigned to' Die complainants
'ino point ot contention is wbetner the nolo was
originally solvable in Confederate currency or in Hie
legal currency of ilio l ulled Stales The Circuit Court
must have UelU that it was solvable in legal currency
auu was so intended by ibe pat lies, lor its decree is lor
tbe lull amount claimed. In its ruling in tins respect
we tlunk the Court erred, it scorns to u? that Hie evi
dence uouudaLtly juhtilies the conclusion mat me
transaction, lor which tbe note was in part given, Was
in Coulederate currency. At the time Ibe raiironil
bonds were purchased, January 8, 1803, the treasury
notes ol the Confederate government constituted tbo
priueipul currency ol Georg.a, in winch business trans
actions were conducted. It Was lu them mat refer
ence was always uuide Wucu dollars wore mentioned
uiiiCsS cotu was specified. I'lns condition ol things
appearing, the presumption is tiint in the purchase oi
the r.iproad bon is the parties had those notes in con
templation. And the testimony ol Cults and ol oilier*
cognizant ol Ibe transaction, except Mordecai, is pos
itive that sueli wns the ease. The conceded lacis re
specting me trunsomioii had to ibe same conclusion.
I lie vuluo ol the bond* was estimated al lite tune lu
Couludcrato currency; they were sold for eigbi.v cents
on the dollar in that currency. Tho cash payment or
over $12,lMAi Was In ilio same currency. i'ne foO.iMXi
note given at tils lime was paid s lew muutiis after
ward in that currency, it is Inghlv improbable that
an exccpiiouul distinction was made wlin relercuco lo
the balance lor which Ibe note ol Stewart was exe
cuted. Certainly the presumption is strung ibo
other way. 'lhe transaction and testimony together
leave no doubt In our mimic on the subject.
Tue sum therefore in uutuul money which the uo.e of
Stewart represented aud which he prom nod to pay
must he dotei mined ny the value in coin or legal
currency ol tno United Mutes at Die time tbo note was
made alia mi tue place wbere it was made ol Confed
erate treasury r.uiet, equal in nominal amount to tho
number ol dollars spACKIOd, Ami as lbs payment is
en.lor*, d no ibo note lu the saine monetary terms
Which a re used in the bote >l*ell, Die presumption is
that tho payment was intcudcd lu be credited lu the
same scale ot vaint* II tbe parties intended other
wise, some proof on the subje.t should have beou pre
sented. 1 lie credit was made w ithout any explana
tion, aud there i* i.o evuieuon Dial the value ol tbo
dolmrs mentioned In tbe receipt was dlllerent irom
the dollars mentioned In th? note. As the matter ia
piesenied lo us the principal dsei/Datad on tho lace of
the nolo is on.y reduced lo tho amount specified iii tho
receipt. The true rule, therefore, foi n-cei taming
ino rights ol the panics iit the cat* is to uaiculsu the
Interest on Die principal o. Die note up lu the lline of
tbo payment, and having then deducted tho payment,
to treat the balance us tue debt llieti due?the amount
in money to b<- determined by tbo value lu Georgia of
Uonicderato not.* in r.oiu or Die legal currency
ol tno Unit u Maio* at the time tins nolo
was made. Iiitciusi should be calculated
on litis b.ilaiii.o lo the date ol the doc roe.
I PC note, w ith Interval, amounted, when the payment
wi s ma le, to $.>3,7*7 , the credit oi $10,826 reduced It
to $38,4<>2. This ainouui, st aled by the value ol Con*
federate currency in Uoorgin at the date ol tho note?
throe to oik?would lo.iKe a baianie duo iu lawful
money March 17, lstPi, ol $12,120. This amount, with
ii,luteal, will ooliaiiiulo Die sum which should bo ad
judged duo, and lor Its payment tho proceeds ol tho
mortgaged premises, when sold, should be aupliod.
