No Physician of character or atandiug in the community in which ho lives and is known ever travels about the country seeking patients ; if his skill is as great as he would have the people to believe it to be, the patients would seek him, aud not he them.

Ou behalf of the United States it is claimed that the General Gov ernment, in right of its soveriegnty, can not only take property given or devised to it, hut can bring suit to recover in eith* * United States or State courts. On behalf of the appellants it is urged that the General Government has right to hold real estate by devise, with out the consent of the Legislature of tho State in which such real estate is located, i the United States is a corporation hose charter is the Constitution, by which it is not authorized to hold real estate by devise. It is further claimed that there is no authority by which a man can devise his property to the United States, as no such authority has ever been conceded by the State Government; that the State of New York has sovereign control over its own territory, and with out tho special authority sometimes con ferred upon it. the General Government lias no right to take even a stone; and that, as no such power has been granted in the present instance, the General Gov ernment cannot hold this real estate any more than on alien power—Great Brit ain or the Bepnblie of France, for ex iple.
