Shepherd, growing out of the de struellon or Northern Liberty Market in 187- were detailed. Tin; Commissioners conceded that the claims still pending are based upon equity, and that the parties interested weie un able to file their claims berote the old board of audit at the formal hearing of the cases. Air. Thomas finds there were but six claims on the docket of the Supreme Court of the District. They were brought in lb75. by the following named stall-holders: Andrew & Wade, Ellas Hasher, Will iam S. Crown, Joseph Brattier, Kit-bard P King and Emanuel Lancaster. The attorne mjh: "Uovernoi Shepherd interposed two pica, thfgi-iici.il issue, and a special plea that the site occupied by the .N'oithern Lihprtj .Market was tin- property of the United States, and that on or alout Sep tember -1, lf-7-, O.

NEVER BROUGHT TO TRIAL. 'The special pleas were demurred to and the deinuners were sustained by the court, thus leaving the cases to be tried on the plea or the gein-ral isue, with a statement that any appropriate defense might be interposed. The plainiilfs in these cases never brought them on for trial, and under a rule of the court, they were stricken from the docket, the last one as late as 1880." -There dots not appear to have been am claim made that the District was liable toanv (it tho-e who were damaged. On the coutrarv. the facts disclosed in (Jov. Shepherd's special plea were true, the suix-rini'Mideiii of public buildings and giounds was responsible for the act eomM plained of."

AS TO CORNER LOTS. The board pointed out alleged injustice in the matter or claimsagainsi corner lot assessments, and in summing up, say that '.slight irregularities will apparently exist under any form or assessment, even be tween one corner lot and another, and the attempt at thi date to readjust the assess ments on corner lots would only open the door to all lot-owners who have paid auj tax whatever Tor special purposesduring the existence o( the board of pubie- woi kf."

The Commissioners yesterday r com mended favorable action on House bill 7160, whh li provides that all judgment rendered in ciul i a uses, shall beat inter est from the date ol judgment.
