owners cf properly abutting on the

done and the tax levied tbe Supreme
uourt aeciared me levey void. Lou

recovered a judgment against the c ty
of $11,157 87, and the courts manda
mused tbe city to levy a special tax
to satisfy the judgment. After $.0,034

Yesterday the chnrcn was crowded
with woiehipptrs. and tbe internet
seemed to increase. Tue origin nf the
jubilee is not of recent date. There
ar two kinds of jubilnr first, the
inbilee pr claimed by Most s to the
Hebrew nation, and, st'ond, the jubi
lee which trie rope, me vitnie hesd
of the church and virar of Jesua
Christ, occeionall7 grants to the
Catholic world. The jubilee granted
by the Catholic Cburch tilers to the
faithful what is known as a plenary
indulgence, which is explained as a
total remission nf the temporal pun
ishment which sinneis have still to
undergo after having obtained pardon
of their sirs, lc dtes tiot remit sin,
but the temporal punishment due
after sin is forgiven, and Catholics
claim that tbe church h ts power to re
mit the temporal puninbraent due on
account of sin. Toe miis on will close

Steamboa'mn and sbipidrg clerks
and others having business on the
levee cannot have fai eil to notice a
dark eyed, coarse featured Italian
woman who fnquented (he lower
decks of the steamboats off ering tor
tale apples, oranges ard uananas and
other seasonable fruit, and who was
known as Mary. The boys on tbe
river used to amuse ttiemsjlves by
chaffing her go ,d natnredly, hut she
was dunk nt repartee, and promptly
returned a Roland for an Oliver. For.
the past two dys she has teen absent
from her usual haunts, and much
speculation existed among tbe other
women of iter ciars as to her where
abouts. Last nigbt Justice Parry was
summoned to hold an inquest in a
lonely, squalid and barely furnished
room at 210 Front street, and there
lay the mortal remains of Mary Par

verdict of the coroner's jury.

Jackson, advtrcely to p aim iff, revives
memories oi the war, and of infamous
proceedings under the color of
law, by means cf which ti e
riah'ful owners of land were robbed
of their property. Amons all meas
ures of this cbA'acter, none was more
prolific of hardship, glarlrg acts of in
justice snd wholtsale confiscation of
property, than the acts of June 7,
1862. fjr tbe collection of direct taxts
in the insurrectionary districs, and
the act oi February o, ic63. amenda
tory thereof. 'Jhese acts imposed a
direct tax on lands and appointed a
Biard of Commissioner) to enfeie the
collection of the tax. Thess Commis
sioners adopted a rule that virtually
amounted :o the con fi cation of ail
property belonging to oant-rs ab'ent
from home in tbe Confederate serv
ice. If the tsx wss not paid the lands
were adverustd for sale, and a rule
' established compelling owners to
make tender ot payment in per
son, and refuting to accept pay mint
from any out me ouner tn perton.
ULUrr tne operation ot
many of the rnst Inuds were sold
either to tbe United States cr ti
k-reedy land sharks, who on.v awaited
the oppr rtunity to possets themselves
in this miqu tons n.auner of property
which iigtitfully belooged to others.
In most casts the ontrane wss submit-
t?d to without a murmur, and much
valuable property passed into the
hands of the land p'rstts who were in
waiting lor the purpose. Hjtne. how.
ever, rebelled at tbe glaring injuttice
ana lnvoaed' tne aid of, the law to re.
store to them their own. To the la'tsr
olaa belonged McNeal, the defendant
in the case dec lod yesterday. The
plalutill was W. J. Smith, the well
known politician. The tilaintifj sued
an ejectment to obtain poesest-ion of
lorty acrea oi iana, and relied for tltlo
on a certificate issued by three United
Slates Commissioner., which certified
that in 1864 W.J. Smith purchased the
land in question at a sale f laud sold
for taxes due tbe United 8 stos. The
defendant relied upon twe points to
F.r t, that tbe detciiption of the prop,
rty was too vague and uncertain; and
second, that tbs Commissioners made
a rule to tae effect that no one but
tbe owner in person would be allowed
to pay tbe aseefsod taxes.
In eupport
of this last point tbe depositions of
w. a. intktord. John Johnson. John
White and J J Lovin were read, all nf
wnom testified that the rule was
rigidly enforced. After the conclusion
of the argument,
in arriving sta decision. He decided
without, an instant's hesitation in
favor of the defendant on both points,
and held that whenever it was shown
by competent pro' f that the Commis
sioners had es abliehed and enforced
an uniform ruloihat they would re
ceive the taxes from no one but the
owner in person, tbat such rnle
avoided the tale, and a tender
on the part of the owner
through an agent or friend was un
necessary heiau'e it won d have been
of no avail. Ihe decision Is of great
impor ance, an it virtually decide. that
all tales, made under the law were
void. Unfortunately for some, how
ever, they ere without a remedy, as in
msny csu the right of action has been
lost by allowing the purc hasers to re
