THREE SUITS Of Considerable Importance Decided in the United States Court Orer a Million Dollars Involved In One Case and aa Extensive Body of Valuable Land In Anotaer. Three important decisions were ren dered in the United States Court yester day. They were as follows. Fnmplin va. iMjtt. This was a case arising out of the treaty with the Chickasaw Indians in 1832 and 1834. involving two sections of land in Shelby county in the strip formerly claimed by the State of Mississippi. Under that treaty the land was set apart to an Indian named Love, who died and left it to his daughter Elsie, who married a man named Allen and died without children, the land descending to Allen under the tribal laws. Allen subesquently moved to the Chickasaw Nation and rejoined bis tribe. When be left he owed a debt to Apneraon & Co. In 1848 they sued him by attachment and the sheriff sold the land, anu it was purchased by the determ ents in this case or those through whom they claim. This suit was brought by the heirs ol the Indian i Allen l, naraea Love, for the land, claiming - that under the treaty the land and the Indians, who owned it were not sub ject to the attachment laws of Tennes see, but that the only method ot pass inn an Indian title was by a deed ap proved by the Indian cniois, the Indian agent and the President of the United States. The case was tried before Justice Matthews and District Judge Hammond. Judge Hammond read the opinion of Justice Matthews holding that under the treaty the laud was subject to the laws ot Tennessee, niter the Indian moved from tire State, and giving judg ment in favor of the defendant, in which opinion the District Jndge concurred. V'nlteU Stances vs. George Dent Com tempt. In the case of Ferguson vs. Dent, George K. Anderson was appointed examiner to take proof. In the progress ot the exami nation ol a witness, he reported to the Court that Geo. G. Dent, one of the par ties and an attorney in the case, inter fered with the examination, and refused to desist on the order of the examiner, and used violent aud abusive language to the examiner. On the filing of the report Judge Hammond direct ed a rale against Dent to show cause why he should not be punished for contempt. Dent answered denying too contempt and lnsusting that wnat he did was not under the statutes of the United States a contempt of court. The Court held otherwise ana hned him oO, committing him until the line and costs are paid. -.- Lafayette fount jr, Sf ins., va. K. P. Kecly. This was a suit by stockholders of the old Mississippi Uen;ral Kailroad (Jompany against Neely and the Illinois Central Railroad Company as the purchaser of the Mississippi Central road, to call them to an account for Keely'a receivership before the sale. Keely was appointed receiver oy tov. sorter to collect the interest and debt due the State,nnd was in charge of the road for about twenty months. While he was in charge the mortgage bondolders filed a bill in the United States 'Court to foreclose the mortgage and sell the road. and under the decree the Illinois Central railroad purchased it. While JJeely had potstssion as receiver he collected of ita earnings $802,241 52, and paid out in op erating expenses $370,303 18, and in "ex traordinary expenses SW6.0 S3 03, and to the State on account of interest due $110, 000. This left in his hands, after adding the value of supplies, a sum aggregating $105,07-) 77. Against this he claimed a credit of $!2,40S 35 due to employes on his pay-rolls, and balances for supply bills $34,887 59, and for balances due "on new rails purchased and being delivered' $34,000, leaving an apparent balance against him of $3778 83, which ho claimed would be otfcet by suits for damages tg itnst the road. He made a report to the Gov ernor showing tiieae facts, wl ich report was appioved. When the Illinois Cen tral purchased the road at the foreclosure sale, there was still due the State, which was a prior lien on the road, accrued interest amounting tj $94,231, and the principal of the debt, Sl.UO.OOa Un der the act of 1809 the purchasers bought up the bonds ot the state which had been issued in aid of railroadB, as the bill al leges, at a very heavy discount and paid the debt due the state, principal and interest, and thereupon the receiver turned over the railrosct the cash on hand, alleged to be about $2-,000, the new steel rails not laid, amounting in value to about $30,000, and all the other assets ol the company. This bill was tiled by the stockholders and creditors ol the old Illinois tjentrai Kail road Company, alleging that Keeiy had collnsively expended large sums of money in unnecessary improvexenU of the road, and that the cash and other assets surrendered to the purchasers was pur chased with the earn in in of the road, which were not included in the mortgage imder which they bought. Tho bill prayed that Weeiy and tne 4Uinc-i3 uey,irai m road Company miaht be held personally liable upoit an account for the amount found lue. The bill was demurred to noon a great many grounds, the principal of which was that the equity of the pur chasers to tho muds in iveeiy s nanus was paramount to that of the stockholder and creditors. Judge Haintacnd sustained tho dem"rrer and dismissed the bill at me C03t oi me piaiuiitr. LOCAL PARAGRAPHS. t Minstrels again to-night. The weather continues warm.

CROP REPORT For the Month or September Compiled from 282 Responses to Inquiries " Condition of Cotton Not So Favorable as Before Consider able Damge from Dronth, Enst and Excessive Rains. The condition of the crops in the coun try tributary to Memphis is admirably set lortn in tna lollowing report, compiled from the correspondence ot Messrs. Hill, Fontaine A Co , cotton factors and whole sale grocers, and 293 Front Street, this city. . Crop Report for Keptesuber. Herewith is submitted the cotton crop repoit for tbe Memphis district, which embraces Went Tennessee, North Missis sippi, North Arkansas and .North Alabama, for the month of September. This report is collated from 282 responses, bearing date of September 30th, mailed us in reply to letter of inquiry Bent out September 24th. As will be seen from the tables be low, the weather dariDg the month has been unfavorable to the growing cotton crop, not, ary weatner, wbi'-li was the continuance of a drouth extending back through August, prevailed throughout the district until aoout tbe -Utb of beptember. when excessive rains fell, principally in Arkansas and Tennessee. The drouth had materially affected the plant, and the rains which subsequently tell in many localities milled to tbe damage already sustained. The favorable prospect indicated in the July report, which at that time prom ised an increased yield in this district, has been changed. Cotton in the main has not fruited well, neither has the plant re tained its squares and bolls. From all over the district serious damage ia report ed from drouth, rust aud excessive rains, These have caused a eeneral revision of the prospective yield, which as now indi cated will be 174 per cent, less than last year. Tbe weather since these reports were furnished fcas been more seasonable. and a continuance ot these favorable con ditions, together with a late frost, would improve a large proportion of the growing crop, especially in tue bottoms, which would reduce the percentage of decrease and possibly niake the yield in the Mem phis district approximate that of last year. Corn has not suffered to tbe extent of cot ton, and there will be ample raised to more than supply tue demands ot this section ot the country. WEST IESNEKSE8 50 KK3POXSE3.
