S ie appealed, and the ease waa carriej up to the Supreme Court nf the United StateN, and intel ligence haa just been received from Waahington that the Court haa reversed the decree of the Circuit O u t. The decision is thus noticed in the National Intelligencer of this morning : The following comments on the decision are from the N. V. Tribune : "It will delight many of our reader all in deed who have been acquainted with the merits of thia case, which for the long period of four teen years haa been in the courts to learn that the Supreme Court of the United Statea yester day afternoon decided it on ail potrts in favor of Mra. Gaines. The suit haa been among the moat important and interesting ever before the American Courta. The enta of the litigation on the pi rt of Mrs. Gainea alone, cannot have beeo leea than eighty l ninety thousand dol lara, but the result involves many millions. The history of Mrs. Gainca, aa we gather it from the record of the case prepared for the use of the Supreme Court, ia full of the most ro mantic and various incident. She is a woman of remarkable abilities, decision am! generosity, and of manners singularly frank and engaging. Perhapa no woman in thia country haa more or warmer friend, and ifhe has any enemies, she owes it entirely to the remarkable position she bss so long occupied ss a defrauded and injured heireaa of one of the largest etatesnf the couti. nent, held by numerous and powerful confed eracy, w hote hopes of triumph were baaed upon her supposed friend leasueea and poverty. Mrs. Gaines formerly resided in this city She married Mr. Whitney, of Binghamptnn, N. Y., who removed to New Orleans, where he prosecutod the claim of hia wife to her rightful property, but died before a deciaon was made. She afterwards married Gen. Gainea, who haa, wih the moat untiring assiduity, maintained hereauae to the present suoceaalol iasue. The whole ofthis property, which haa been so long in litigation, is situated in the city of New Orleans and, aa we have before stated, is eatimated to be worth fiom ton to thirty roillioaiof dnllere, Mra.
