A Stbakok Legal Cas. Yesterday
evening there was a case in Magistrate
Creigbton's Court thateicited considera
ble interest from its peculiarity. Esquire
Walton, by request, occupied the bench.
It appears that a colored man, named
Spencer Murrah, owed a white man,
named Michael O'Donnell, a small sum
of money. Mnrrah made arrangements
a few : days ago to move to Arkansas.
O'Donnell took out an attachment and
held his household property to secure his
debt Murrah's wife took a writ of re
plevin to recover the property, claiming
that it was hers. There is a law in this
State that a married woman cannot re
plevin property. The counsel for plain
tiff, Mr. Turnage, maintained that the
woman was not married legally, although
she had lived an the wife of Spencer
Murrah for fifteen years, and has a fami
ly of six children ; that they had never
availed themselves of the privilege guar
anteed ' by ' Congrees, to be married
hence she was an unmarried woman in
the eyes of the law, and could replevy the
property. 'Mi1. Millet", the counsel for de
fendant to replevy, maintained tbey be-
became legally married by the act of
Congress, and the recent act of the Ten
nessee Legislature ; hence, being a mar
ried woman, she could not replevy the
property. Tbe argument on both sides
was elaborate and lengthy. The Magie
trale held that the woman had never been
kigally: married, aud sustained her writ
of ; replevy whereupon Mr. Miller an
nouncV'd that he would take an appeal to
the Common Law Court rj , '

been inflexibly adhered to, and the des
titute of our neighboring States, under

International Difficcltt Fioyr in

Overton Hotel an Englishman named
Woolmer keeps some kind of a pano
rama, billiard rooms, etc., and like all of
his countrymen is very proud of the land
of his birth, believing that there is no
place like " Hold Hingland." But the
recent Fenian movement excited Wool
mer's patriotic ardor to such an extent
that be not only bragged of his nativity,
but uttered derogatory remarks in regard
to Americans and Irishmen. The fre
quent repetition of these remarks very
much annoyed Capt Cross, "who keeps a
livery stable under Woolmer' s place, and
yesterday he knocked Woolmer down
and punished htm severely. Capt Cross
was arrested and taken before the Recor
der this morning, when Woolmer stated
bis case, aud upon being questioned by
Cross, taunted him with jumping on him
when he was unarmed, stating that he
(Cross) had his revolvers and his lull-
dogs to back him, which proved that he
was a coward. As he uttered tbe last
word Cross struck him, knocking him
down, and kicked him several times be
fore he wa -compelled to desist by the
Recorder ordering the police to separate
them. Woolmer' face and head were
bloody, being evidence that he bad suf
fered severely. Cross did not appear to
bave beea touched daring the difficulty.
Order being restored, the Recorder con
tinued the case until Ionia) time in the

Loth BriLDino Lots. Next 1 week
Monsarrat, Lanier k Co. will tell at auc
tion a larger number of the most desira
ble building lots than have, or wilt be of
fered at auction this season. ; A number
of them are located on Alabama street,
extending through to Market street, and
a number of others are situated on Brink
ley avenue, near tbe intersection of the
Raleigh road. The first belong to "Sew
York parties, and those on Brinkley ave
nue belong to a gentleman who is about
to move away from the city, and hence
all the lots are to be sold, regardless
the prices bid. Persons therefore desir
ing to invest in fine improving property
will do well to attend these sales..
Another Railroad Accident Mah
Killed. A passenger on tbe train in
forms us that a young man, apparently
about eighteen years of age, waff run
over and instantly killed on the Memphis
and Charleston Road, at 4 o'clock this
morning, about a mile this side of
White's station. When first seen he was
standing on the track, and it is supposed
that he had been asleep, and was aroused
by the coming of tbe train. It was im
possible to identify him, as bis body had
been torn to pieces, and was scattered
for a distance of thirty yards along the
track. No blame cau be attached to the
engineer, for he stopped the train as
quick as possible. 'W ii 1 L :.i"'.L'nt
