Aikin's dti", and had built up the original
bill of H'2: to nearly :?i-. Mr. Gilbert
presented a bill against Mr. Aiken, which
was allowed with interest, and which
amounted to more than lie owed for the
.tobacco. The prosecution rested its case,
and Col. Haskins for the defence coolly in
formed the court that the amount of the
suit exceeded the jurisdiction of a justice
court, and the matter had to be dropped.

new papers made out, but before they weie
served Mr. Aiken and Mr. Murphy had
settled. A new trial between Corser and
Aiken will lie had in the court room Sat
urday, April 14.
