(Exclusively for Virginian-Pilot) WEATHERS V. BOARDERS. Supreme Court ol North Carolina, May 6, ISO!). A MARIUED WOMAN'S CONTRACT FOR THE ERECTION OP A HOUSE ON LAND WHICH IS HER SEPAR? ATE ESTATE, IS NOT VALID UN? LESS' MADE WITH THE WRIT? TEN CONSENT OP HER HUS? BAND. AND THERE IS IS NO LIEN ON SAID HOUSE AND LOT FOR THE WORK. The facts sufficiently appear from the opinion of th?* court, the same being given on a petition for a rehearing of the cuse. The court says: The feme defendant was the owner of a lot of laud, and she and her hus? band contracted verbally with the plaintiffs to build a. house on this lot, bclonlng to the wife. The plalntlfTs built the house, und they admit that they have been paid for the sanie, except $37. The plaintiff brought his action before a justice of the peace against the husband and wife for the balance due him for building the house, und In this action he claims .a. mechanics' lien on the house for Jils debt. Pie recov? ered Judgment-against the husband, but the court refused to give judgment against the feme defendant, and also refused to declare a Hen on the house In favor of the plaintiff. This judg? ment of the Superior Court was nf II r med by this court wlien It was here before. The petitioner says that .this was error, which he asks to have cor? rected. To entitle a party to a statu? tory lien (as this must be, if a lien), there must be a valid Indebtedness. The debt Is the cause of action, and the lien is only Incident to the debt. Thern can be no statutory lien without a debt for the lion to rest upon. It. there? fore follows that plaintiff can have no lien on the house and lot, unless he has ft debt ngnlpst the feme defendant, upon which be could recover it personal udgmeht against her. Tills brings us to a consideration of section 1820 of the Code, quoted above; and we find that this section fulls to give the petitioner any rijrht to recov? er judgment against the feme defend? ant. The statute declares that no married woman shall be capable of making contracts, affecting cither her personal or real estate, except for her necessary personal expenses, or for the support of the family, or such as may bo necessary to pay her debts, unless with the written consent of her hus? band existing nt the time of her mar? riage, unless she be n. free trader. It In admitted that she Is not a free trad? er, and It Is perfectly apparent to us that the building of a house on a lot belonging to the feme defendant docs not fall under any one of the excep? tions contained in section 1S2G. It is not necessary personal expenses. It is not what could be termed expenses incurred for the support of the family, and it Is not claimed that it Is for ti debt due at the time of her marriage. With this Interpretation of section 1R26. which ??corns io us to be so manifestly correct that we hardly sec how it could be un? derstood otherwise, wo fail to sec the error in the former opinipn and judg? ment of this court which the petitioner seeks to point out. But if the plaintiff had boon able to establish a debt, and to have obtained a judgment against the fetno defend? ant for nny of the excepted matters In section 1S20, for which she may con? tract, such judgment would not have been a Hen on the real estate (the house and lot) of the feme defendant, al? though her personal estate would be liable for the payment of such judg? ment. This doctrine 1ms been announc? ed by this court in a great number of cases. We therefore see no grounds upon which plaintiffs' claim could be declared a Hen on the house nnd lot, the "real estate of the feme defend? ant," even if he could get a judgment against her. It is contended in the petition to re? hear (used as a brief) that the feme defendant did not plead her coverture. But It appeared all through the case that she was a feme covert, trad, this appearing, it was the duty of the court to see that she had the benefit of this defense. Petition dismissed. TIio Oystm- Reason. The oyster business opened yesterday for tho season and the delicious bl- i valves brought forty-five cents per bushel Iii tho shell, which Is said to be higher than they have ever been known to sell at before, according to a gen- i tlemnn who has been bringing; oysters to tho Norfolk market for a number of years.

Owing to the prevalence of easterly winds since the great storm, a large number of sailing vessels that have cleared from this port and Newport News for New York, Philadelphia and Eastern ports have sailed as far as Hampton Roads and are there Jrt an? chor, awaiting a shift of wind favora? ble to their proceeding to destinotion. Yesterday the steamer Harbinger, from North Carolina 'to Norfolk, via the Dismal Swamp Cnnal, broke down, through some weakness in her ma? chinery, when Just this side South Mills, and was towed by the tug Mol lie as far as Doep Creek locks, when, her machinery having been repaired, site proceeded under her own steam to Norfolk.
