an interesting point, and it may rticit the
opinion of the highest court in the Stati
on the question of the eligibility of col
ored citizens to act as juryiuen. It will
he remembered that the tirst section o
the Civil Kights Bill provides "that al

In addition to this section of the Civi

the plainiilfa a considerable sum of
money on account of demands sought to

these circumstances it has been deemed
may be nroper for iuo to nay in pawing
I that the terms of this arrange- ai
ment, so far as they have been ai
communicated to the court, in- p
volve no concession by or retlection w

paid is $400,000. This sum is to be
handed over by Hugh Smith as executor It
I of James M.Sweeney, deceased, brother ft!
of l'eter 15. Sweeney. di
It is understood that the reasonable ir
length of time in which a restitution can
. bo (.'fleeted will elajwe, when, if the agree- tl
I ment shull have been complied with the m
causes against Peter B. Sweeney, will be T
formally stricken from the docket. m
