The following is the decision, In full, In a case
which has attracted a great deal of attention, stand
ing as it does a»ss a precedent for the many similar
cases which are likely to come up. It will be seen
that the decision rendered in another case of this
kind by Lieut. Parsons, Provost Judge, some months
ago is reversed in the following :
DECISION OF THE HON. PHILIP M. RUSSELL.
John M. Cooper vs. Cuckenheimer ft Selig—Pos
sessory Warrant to recover possession of a horse,
under the act oflß2l.
In this case the rlaintlff, by his witnesses, estab
lulled the fact that In December, 1864, the horse,
which is the subject matter or the suit, was in his
quiet and legally, and peaceably acquired posset
slon: ''hat it disappeared from that possession
■•without.Ms consent,” and that it '‘has been recover
ed and taken possession of by tUe defendantand
that when General Sherman’s Army passed through
the county of Effingham,ln December last, this horse
was taken out of the lot in which it was kept by
some of the soldiers of that army, without the con
sent of plaintiff
The defendant proved that they came Into the pos
ceiilon of the horse from'Mr. John Scholl, to whom
Hie horse was given by a Major in the Federal army
inme three weeks after that army arrived at Savan
nah ; also, that the horse was, when so given, In the
~amp of the Federal army, and in a very bad condi
tion ; so much so that the Federal Major stated it
had been condemned, and if not taken away should
l, e snot. It fflso came out In the course of the ex
amination that the plaintiff had endeavored toob
tain the possession of the horse from John Scholl
through the Provost Judge’s Court, but had failed to
do so; also, that there was on the horse no brand or
mark to show it had been condemned.
The question which I am called on to decide is
: ,mply which of the parties before me is entitled to
the "possession of this horse, I have no right to decide
as to the conflicting titles to the ownership of the
horse. If there be such conflict, that question must
come before another and a higher tribunal, nor can
I decide any question in reference to the amount
w hich the defendants may claim Horn plaintiff for
services rendered him in taking care of the horse,
saving its life and improving its condition. This,
also, is a matter foreign to the subject now under
.. Moderation. The Statute of 1821, under which
this action is brought, requires me to turn over the
property in dispute to the parry in whose peaceable
end legally acquired possession it last was. The
Supreme Court of Georgia, in the case of Marchman
\Todd, It Ga. Reports p 25, has interpreted and
w , mined this statute, and declared what proof is
us e-sary, and what sufficient to make out a case
un ior this statute. They declare that ‘:the plaintiff
hns only to show that the property in question was
heretofore in lits peaceable-possession, and is now
found in the possession of the defendant. And he
has made out a prints facie case ; and the burden is
cast upon the defendant to show that the change of
I possession has been by consent of the plaint iff or by
1 operation of law. See also, Mills vs. Glover, 22d Ga.
r. p. 319. Now, in the case before me, tbe plain
tui nac shown that, heretofore he was in the peace-
I able possession of this horse, and that now it is
[found in the possession of the defendants. It then
; becomes necessary for the Defendants to prove that
the change of possession has been by the con-ent of
the plaintiff or by operation of law. Hava they prov
ed either according to the evidence referred to?
They have certainly shown no consent on the part of
the plaintiff: on the contrary, it has been proved to
be without his consent. Nor do I think they have
Bliown it lias been by operation of lew, as Intended
by the statute. No procees or Judgment of law chang
ed this possession. The defendant’s counsel contends
that this was a case of legal capture and that; there
fore tile possession by opera
tion of law, even If the abstract propos
tlon Involved in this assertion be correct, its
nppUcatlon to the present case cannot benefit the
iefendants. If the property is to be considered as
captnred.it belonged to the United States, and could
Duly come legally into the possession of the defend
mts by a compliance with certain rules and regula
tions established by military law. No evidence of
such compliance or of the fact that the steps neces
sary to constitute un “operation of law” have been
aken has been adduced. But uhder the decision of
he Supreme Court and in accordance with the
enns of the statute of 1821, I am constrained to hold
hat the facts established by defendants
io not make out a case of an operation of law as
iontemplatod by the statute.
The facts having been proved that plaintiff was
heretofore in the peaceable possession of this horse,
nil that the possession has not been changed with
he consent of plaintiff, or by operation of law, I
leclde that the horse be turned over to the posses
ion of the plaintiff, upon condition that he enter
ato a bond with good security in double the amount
f the value of the 1,0530. to cause the lioihe to be
reduced and forthcoming to answer any Judgment,
Bxecution or decree that may be Issued, or made
Bpon such action or suit at law or In Equity as the
•pposlte parties may commence or prosecute within
-ihe next tour years touching the same.

EMIGRATION COMPANY. ’
SLAVERY, or Involuntary servitude is practically
abolished in Georgia Tbu Proclamation of the
i’resident of the United States having given freedom
rn every slave, anu the oath of amnesty and the con
ditions of paidon. forbid any attempt at ita revival In
any form rr n edition
ihe great mass of the Agricultural Population of
ilte St.de has bean released from their obligation to
cultivate the roil, except by their own volition, and
It must he apparent to the Indlciona observer, how
ever mnch o be regretted, that the volnatary labor
of the newly freed population will not for the present
at least, supply the deficiency of labor.
The withdrawal of nearly three hundred thousand
able-bodied persons to a greater or less extent from
their usual vocations, has created a void which most
foe filled or the lands of the State will remain nntllled,
her great resources undeveloped and her future pros
The remedy, and the only remedy for this condition
ot affairs consists in the immigration of a hardy and
industrious white population, to supply the places of
those who cannot be compelled to work and whoso
depositions do not Incline them to greater labor than
is actually necessary to support life.
To such Immigrants, no State offers greater Induce
ments than the State of Georgia. Extending from
the Atlantic Ocean to the Bine Rlge, it embraces eve
ry variety of soil and climate. The savannahs of the
coast, the rolling conntry of Ihe interior, and the
mountains of the northern part of the State afford
opportunities for the cultivation of almost every pro
duct of tropical or temperate latitudes.
The grape Is grown with great Success In mtny
parts of the State and its cultivation has only been
limited by the want of persons skilled In the knowl
edge of the vine nnd the mode of preparing Its yield.
The State la also rich In gold and other minerals, and
nothing but energy and the application of proper ma- .
chinery Is wanting to the development of those bid
The raising of sheep of the finest breeds has been
carried.on with success, and the vast ranges qf nncnl
tlvated land afford excellent pastures for cattle and
all kinds of stock—rice, cotton, tobacco, corn, wheat,
rye. oats, sugar cane, the grape and all species of
fruits llnd thel* appropriate soil and climate within
onr extended limits.
The numerous rivers and smaller streams taking
their rise in the mountains and running through the
Slate into the Atlantic aud tbe Gnlf in their gradual
descent furnish water power unfailing In any seaaon
and capable of patting into operation any kind of
The area of the State contains upwards of thirty
millions ol seres, o which not more than one-third
has been cultivated, and tbe virgin forest of the wtld
land, afford an Inexhaustible snpply of lumber which
foc_ied a heavy Item of tbe exports of Georgia prior
to onr late difficulties. These lands, which mS be
bongbt at comparatively low rates, will give to the
new settler a homestead on which he may erect his
rooftree nnd setlie for life an Inhabitant and in time a
Utiii nos the repnbl c.
In view ot the foregoing facte tbe undersigned pro
pose to organize a Company to be called the "Georgia
Land and Emigration company," the principle office
to he located in Savannah with the intention of an
plying for a charter at the next session of the Letrisln
ture; 'he capital (rs said Company to be five hundred
Iln.nsand dollars, in twenty thousand of twentv-flve
ilollai s each; said Company to be organized bv tbe
choice ofs President aud Directors when all the
-haresnhall have been subscribed.
The object of the Company to to Induce and afford
•lid to the immigration Into the State of Georgia of
honest, sober snd reliable persons with their families
lo become pnrehasera of and settlers on lands not now
in use, or to bo labore.s on farms or plantations on
which thefreedmen reiuse to work, or to follow their
trades, or become house servants.
The advantages to be dert v«t as this present turn
tnre by the Influx of such a class of populatiomare
mamlest. To the large landholder it offers the pi xn
pectof selling his land or farming it out on advents
geons terms. To the Planter and Farmer it will snn
ply that labor, In tbe absence of which, the owner
ship of the soil la a burthen, and to ill pcreoni in
those Claeses of life whose business requires or whose
position permits the u»e of the labor of others, lt *l
- the opportunity of obtaining snch labor cf
a reasonable rate, and of a reliable character. So
also to the State will great benefit accrne; many of
the Immigrants may bring wealth with them, ail will
bring skill or Industry, which la the source of wealth,
and this Infusion of new life will, we trust, in progress
ol rime, restore Georgia to her original state of pice
* The Company we believe—will be, not only seif-su
telnlng.Jjut a source of profit to the stockholders.—
The fees paid by those emigrants who can afford It,
lor directions aa to their settlement; the commissions
paid by the owners of lands for the sale, or leasing of
their lauds to the immigrants, and by persons to
whom laborers are furnish ec, the profits to be derived
Irom a .savings Institution to take care of the fnnde
and profits ol the emigr ..lits, which lt Is proposed to
connect with the Company, will, we expect, enable
the Company to declare such dividends as will make
it remunerative to those who subscribe simply as an
Investment. But Independently of pecuniary con
Bideration, as citizens of ihe State ot Georgia who
bate an interest in iu future wellare, we ask your as
sistance in this matter, in our opinion of vital impor
! tancc. B e msy not leave the land of eur birth, let
I us make il once more a land of promise.
