Fisi Ao BuBQiAB-PBOor Sam. Messrs
Hall, Carroll k Co. have on exhibition, at tbe
Meohanlos' Fair, a safe, which surpasses any
thing of the kind ever brought before the publio.
Tbe whole weight of this mammoth work of in
gonuity, is seven tuns. It has throe doors.
On the inner door which is styled burglar
proof, and Is three and a quarter inches In
thickness, and lined with steel is attaohed one
of HaU's Patent Combination Locks, tbe price
of whioh is $250. On the middle door is an
other patent look, the price being $150. This,
too, like the burglar-proof door is lined with
steel. Attached to the outer door is a $100
patent lock. The handles of the locks are
plated silver. The wood-work on the inside,
of whioh there is little, is mahogany, and is
beautifully polished. By broaking off the
handles of any of the doors, you are as far ad
vanced toward getting Inside, as If the handles
were on.
A plate of steel guards the outside work
ing of the lock from the inner, yet, by means
of mechanical ingenuity, they are so ar
ranged that, with the key, and that only, the
door and lock, inside and out, are under con
trol. The safe is fivo feet ten inches high,
and five feet two inches wide. The bolts are
round, being a decided improvement on the
old style of bolts; on the outer door there are
six bolts one on top, another on the bottom,
and four on the side the painting on the
safe is highly artistio in execution, and at
tracts a great deal of attention. Wo were as
sured by the makers that this safe stands un
equaled, being the no plut ultra of anything
of tho kind known. Bankers and merchants
should not fail to examine this piece of
mechanism, as we feel assured all will unite
in pronouncing it a safe safe.

an Injunction. Tho allegation in thopotillon of the
plaiutitl (that defendant was about to dispose of his
Rmperty, with intent to place it beyond the rtarh of
is creditors) was positively denied in the answer;
and in this class of cases tbe Court always considered
the dmii,l equivalent to tbe alHrniation, and hold
that the party, unless he Introduced further ovidenre
to Biibstantiato his statemen t, was not entitled to its
process. The testimony bore did not prove any posi
tive wronjr, or anything like a fraud, but a desire on
the part of defendant to retain his prpoerty in his
possession. Nona of the wilueflsus state that there
won anything in his conversation or conduct that
could lay the foundation for a belief that any course
won intended by him by which tho creditors would
be deprived of tho benefit of tho property that Mr. B,
bad at tho time.
Some stress hail been laid on the fact that he had
paid off his brother; but If this was donu in good
faith, he h.ul the legal right to pay off any or his
creditors, and might have supposed his brother sus
tained a moro cunlldciilial relation than others.
Another point urgd, was that ho did nut make an
assignment. Tha Court had no power to compel
him to do so; no right, unless aiinwthiug like a
trust was created, to take possesion of tho property,
and then a clear case must be made out. Thoy
would, however, advise au assignment to be made.
Mr. "ollins-fur defendant That has been done.
Court We can see no reason for sustaining this at.
tnchment. Creditors are not always the coolest men
when their rights are at stako; but indulge views
and suspicions that are afterward found incorrect;
tboy feel sensibly their loss, anil draw, perhaps,
stronger inferences than the Courts afterward would,
who are impartial between the parties. The at
tachment is dissolved.
Iho plaintiff wus represented by Mr. Gibbons.
