Duckett vs. The fc'tite. Larceny, from Monroe. That a hone was stolen, and a few days thereafter the defendant sold it some miles away, and made false statements as to the ownership and possession thereof, was sufficient to support a verdict of guilty of larceny. 2. Where the important fact was brought to the attention of the solicitor* general for the lint time by tbe statement of the prisoner, there was no error in per mitting him to reopen the case to show that fact. Mitchell vs. The Western and Atlantic railroad. Certiorari, from Whitfield. In a suit against a railroad for damages to personalty, the question of negligence is one of faci; and therefore where tbe case turned on that question, on certiorari from a magistrate’s court, the judge should not render final judgment, but re mand the case for a new trial, if errors have occurred. Hamilton vs. Granaers’ Life and Health Iusursuce Company. Complaint, from Floyd. 1. Recoupment as a defense must spring out the contract upon which theplaintit ' sues, and is confined to that. A claim arising out of a distinct transaction can not be recouped against a suit on a prom issory note. 2- The plea of set-off extends to all mu tual deniauds existing between the parties at the dalqof the commencement ofthe action. Therefore money procured by tbe plaintiff from the defendant by fraud may be set-off against a suit on a note for money loaned. (a) Notes without words of negotiabili ty, although held by a bona fido purchas er, arc subject to the equities and defenses existing between tbe assignor and debtor at tbe time of the assignment. Fred Cox. vs. the Commissioners ol Whit field county. Complaint, from Whitfield 1. The act of 1872 did notconfei on the commissioners of Whitfield county judi cial powers except as to roads. (a) If they had any judicial powers as to claims against the county, a refusal to pay unaccompanied by any judgment as to correctness or incorrectness would uot be conclusive. 2. Mandamus tnay be a proper remedy to compel a board of commissioners to pay a fixed and established debt, but suit is the proper mode of determining a liability which is liquidated and denied. Western and Atlantic Railroad vs. Jones. Case, from Catoosa. Railroads are required by law to estab lish jiosts on each side of public cro sings, to blow the whistle and check tbe speed of its trains in approaching thorn, so as to be able to atop should any one be on the crossing. While these provisions are Intended to protect lile and property at such crossings, yet where an accident took place just beyond a crossing, the Tact that these requirements were disregarded, may be considered by the Jury In deter mining the question of negligence or. the part of the employes of the railroad. West vs. Black. Claim, from Whitfield. Tlie verdict In this case is contrary to evidence. One who has made a vail t conveyance of personalty caunot alter- wards avoid the transfer by bis mere ad missions that the property is his, there be ing no question of fraud, and the debt tin der which the property is sought to be subjected having been contracted after tiie transfer. 2. For a justice to admit a written con veyance of personalty in evidence before a jury remarking that “the court thought tlio deed to personalty was worth but little, but as tlie jurors were judges of tbe iaw and evidence, he would permit it to go before tlicm for tbeir consideration, if it was worth anything to them,” was error, and was a good ground for certio rari. Lanier vs. Brooks. Claim,from Whitfield. 1. Property held under bond for titles, with part of the purchase money paid was sold under an execution against the ven dor. By agreement with the holders of the bond, a third patty bought at the sheriffs sale, and gave them a bond to convey cm repayment of the purchase price; they failed to pay; but procured another to do so and take a deed from the purchaser j they gave him tlieir note for the amount so 'paid, and be agreed in parol to convey the land to them on pay ment thereof. While the title atood thus, a judgment was obtained against him. Still later there was a second substitution of another In his place, similar to the first. A fi. fa. against the original holders of the bonds for titles was levied and tbe property sold. The purchaser con tinued to pay the last holder of the title for the purpose of redeeming the lot. The holder of tbe title brought ejectment tgainst h.m; ani under an equitable plea, tbe juty found a money verdict against the defendant, with alternative of a ti. fa. against tbe land. A ti. fa. against the sec ond taker or the tities founded on tlie judgment above stated was levied on the laud, and the purchaser at the second sheriffs sale, hieing also defendant Jit ejectment, claimed: Held, That tlie agreement to convey ti tles made by (It* second holder of the title to tlie original holders of tlie bond for ti tles was without consideration, and not binding. 2. Even if binding, tbe title was never theless in liim l>y actual purchase, and the lien of a judgment against him at- tac!;ed. * U. The original holders of the bond for titles dhl not have either a fee simple or mortgageable Interest in tlie land which they could convey to tbe purchaser at the first sheriff’s sale, or those who were sub stituted (or him, and therefore were not prelected by the act of 3571-2- (Acts *71-2, p. 44). 4. On the trial ofthe claim case arising under the fl. fa. against the second holder of the titles, tlio record of the ejectmont cause between tbe third holder and the claimant was not admissible. tbeir residence, are not entitled to $2.0Q per day for such service. Such compen sation is only allowed them for attendance upon the Superior Court. Andersm vs. Anderson. Debt, from Ca toosa. Where to a suit brought in Georgia on a judgment rendered in the State of Ten nessee, Iho defendant pieade'd his dis charge in bankruptcy, and it appeared that lie was adjudged a voluntary bank rupt pending the suit in Tennes see, but la! led to plead that fact to ask _ stay of the proceedings on that account, and tbe judgment was subsequently ren dered, and he thereafter obtained his dls- ebatge; Held, That tbe plea was a valid bar to a recovery. The Tennessee judgment did not constitute a new debt, but simply a new senility for tbe old debt, and ol it self had no force or effect !n Georgia. Decisions Head e red Hot. S3,1880. Taut et al. vs. Wigfall. Complaint for land, from Richmond. x Courts of Ordinary have general juris diction of tho granting or revocation of letters of administration. Therefore the judgment granting letters as to the partic ular estate cannot be impeached collater ally on the ground that the decedent re sided in a different county. Such a judg ment must be attacked in tbe court where it was rendered. Especially so when the judgment itself recites the fact that tho deceased was late of that county. JolinstoD, county solicitor, vs. Lovett, county judge. When the act of 187C provided that the fees of the county solicitor of Bunco coun ty should be the samo as those allowed the solicitor-general in the Superior Court for like services, such fees became fixed, and a subsequent increase of the fees al lowed solicitor-generals did not also in crease the fees of the county solicitor. Riven vs. tho City Council of Augusta. Case, from Richmond. 1. A municipal corporation is uot lia ble lor damages resulting from a failure on tlie part of its council to perform,or an Improper performance ol those powers and duties «Inch are legislative or judicial in their character. For damages resulting from tlieir neglecting to peif.irm or negli gence in the performance of those duties which are purely ministerial, it would be liable. 2. There is no sound dlslinct'o t as to such liability between a failure to pass an ordinance in the first instance and its re peal or suspension after being passed. Therefore, where a city council passed an ordinance forbidding tlie running at large of cattle iu its streets, but subsequently suspends its operation indefinitely, on the ground, among.others, that the growth of weeds and grass was too luxuriant for comfort, health and good appearance, one who was gored by a cow running at large in tiie streets would not have cause ol ac tion against the city. (a) Nor would tlie principle be altered by the fact that the owner paid a muuici pal tax on the cow. Turner vs. the Grangets’ Life and Health Insurance Company. Attach raeiit, from Floyd. Though a subscription to the slock of an insurance compauy may have been in duced by fraudulent representations, yet tlie subscriber canuot recover the araouut paid, if there are creditors to an equal or larger amount on debts contracted after bis subscription. As to such debts, the funds of tbe corporation, including his subscription, are held in trust for their payment. Anderson vs. Dodd. Ejectment, from Whit field. Whatever may have been the law prior to the code, section 2(181 declares that where a person having paper title to a tract of land is in actual possession of only a part, the law construes tlie posses sion to extend to the boundary of the tract, thus rendering actual possession of part necessary to constructive possession of balance. Under the principle, tbe de fendant showed a valid prescriptive title, and the verdict iu his favor was correct. Gammaz? ct. al. vs. The Georgia South ern Railroad Company, injunction from Floyd. 1. Where a bill alleged that for tho purpose of securing the right of way through laud, a railroad corporation had the writ of ad quod damnum issued, seasment made, from which there was an appeal to the Superior Court, and filial trial had resulting in a verdict for the property owner, simply finding for him $1,l50, and directing that upon the pay ment of such sum the title to the land should vest iu the company, but establish ing no special lieu thereon, and that pend ing these proceedings tlie railroad first taking possession of the property ltccame insolvent, aud was sold under dccreo to defendant, which has since been using tbe same as part of its right of way and road-bed, praying injunction against tbe use of said land until payment of the as sessment, aud for general relief, it was error to dismiss tbe samo on demurrer. There is no common law remedy ade quate to such a case. 2. As complainants have delayed so long before making application for injunc tion, this court will uot interfere with the discretion exercised in refusing the same, but will direct that the chancellor, ou final trial, shall submit to the jury whether tho injunction shall issue, to be stayed days toenaole defendant to make payment Brown and Hill ox tub Situation. A Washington correspondent of the New York Tribune has tho following about the Georgia Senators: Senator Ilill said recently ho was glad his letter to Mr. Chittenden was pub lished, for although a few extremists ou both sides bad assailed him, he bad been brought into correspondence with a great many men anxious to know tho exact truth, and lie guided by it. “To-day things look bright in tlie South,” contin ued the Senator. “Our people are con tented, as moderately prosperous peo ple cenerally ate. We have few very rich and few vary poor people. We have less politics in tho South to-day than you have in tbe North. We ought not to be solid any longer, but much depends upon Garfield. We ongbt to divide upon new issues of public policy. As for me, I am os strongly favorable to sound money as any man In Wall street, but Smith vs. Wade et al. Certiorari, from Floyd.

Duncansby, Miss.,December 5,1SS0— My Dear Sir: Your kind letter was for- | warded frem Columbia and reached me only yesterday. I am very much obliged to you for the interest you have shown iu my behalf, and you were entirely right iu the construcliou you placed on my note to Mr. Sherman. That was written as I passed through Charlottesville, and I naturally gave tny proper address. It never occurred to me for a moment that any one would construe my language as giving or inviting a challenge. Mr. Sherman forgot the propriety of his offi cial position, as well as of mine, when lio made tiie scandalous charge against me in a public speech. I called bis attention to the language I10 was reported to have used, In a courteous letter, thus giving him ac opportunity to disclaim or explain his utterance. In reply he not only reiterated his charge, but took that opportunity to vlllify uot only tho people whom I represented, but those of the whole South. I could not condescend to notice his slanderous attack upon the South, and I simply de nounced his charge connecting me with the ku.klux as fatso. I could do uo less than this, for there was never a falser charge made, nor have I ever known a grosser violation of personal courtesy prof official propriety than that of which ho was guilty. It lias been my good fortune never to have been involved in an aflair I of honor, save as a peacemaker, aud it is a source of deep gratification to me to know that I have been instrumental in settling many difficulties amacably, but I write merely to assure you that you didrne only justice in the view you took of my language and to thank you for the kindness you have shown. I hope,therefore, that you will not misconstrue my mean ing when I tell you that my address will be Washington after the 10th. With my best wishes, I am, very respectfully aud truly, yours, Wads Hampton. To Right Rev. Bishop Howe. I A NEWSY LETTER EKOrt NORWOOD. Brinkley Academy--Clotting Exercises —Address by Sir. Kb.T. Williams, ol Appling County. Norwood, Ga., December 10. Editors Telegraph and Messenger : — We have in this county—Warren'—situ ated near Norwood, on the line of the Georgia railroad, one ofthe most flourish ing academies in Middle Georgia, viz: tiie “Brinkley Academy’’—deriving its name from *t’s founder and principal, Professor Sterling G. Brinkley, whose fame at a teacher is not local, nor confined to Georgia, but is co-extensive with tbe bouuds of our whole country. He is tho enthusiastic promulgator of thc phonet ic system of spelling, which Is calling forth such a feeling oradmiration from the thinking public. The academy is located in a highly en lightened community of good society, and possessing ail those qualifications essential to making a good school. Prof. Brinkley celebrates the close of each term of his school by an examina tion-speeches by liis pupils and an ad dress by some gentleman of note from abroad. His summer term closed with an address from Dr. A. G. Haygood, and to day, after a most satisfactory examination and creditable array of forensic skill from the young disciples of Cicero, the large | audience were treated to an ambrosial feast of literature from that excellent youug tnau,Eb. T. Williams, Esq., of Ap pling, Georgia. Descending from a long line of illustrious ancestry, Mr. Williams nobly represented the little “commonwealth” ol Columbia. The young gentleman, just fresh from the halls of Emory College, with her brightest honors clustering around him, with a well trained mind, a prolific brain, acute reas oning and caustic satire, was well calcu lated to handle with subtle reasoning his THE RAILROAD COMMISSION. Cpoo tbe Seduction or Passenger Pares t> Three veals Per Kile. The circular oLthe Railroad Commis sion reducing passenger fares on all tlie leading lines in the State to three cents a mile i3 the subject of general comment. It is a mailer of such great importance to the people and the railroads that It is re garded as one of the most momeutous is sues of tne day. Yesterday a Constitution reporter call ed on Mr. John H. James,one ofthe direc tors ol the Georgia railroad, and asked his opinion of the effect of the reduction ou tlie Georgia railroad. Said he: “I don’t think tbe change will affect the bonds or the stock of the Geor gia road. Both have an upward tendency and I don’t think this will top It.” “On what do you base this opinion?” Mr. James—“Ou the fact that we have been selling 1,000 mile tickets at $25 and round trip tickets at a great deal less than three cents a mile, and have fonnd the plan to work very well.” “How do you think it will affect travel?” Mr. James—“I believe It will increase it. It set mi nature! that more people would travel at three cents a mile than at four or five centS. n HH “As a railroad man you seem to take a very cheerfttl view ofthe situation?” Mr. James—“Yes, sir. I see nothing alarming in the matter to tho Georgia rail road." “How will it nflecl the other railroads in the State ?" Mr. James—“I don’t think I can speak for any but the Georgia road, for I am better posted as to that than any oilier. A prominent director of tho Central railroad was interviewed at length. “Wliat do you ibiuk, Mr. — — -, ofthe last cireular of the Railroad Commis sion?” “Well, it means that the commission Is bound to regulate tlie roads. I do not mind tins particular action so much as I do the tendency it indicates." “Do you think the commission will go further?” “I believe it will. The next cut will bo on freights. There is no tolling where this tiling is going to stop. I suppose the commissioners have a perfect right to do this. This law gives their, almost arbi trary power, and leaves it to their discre tion, as to what rates are *Jii3t and rca- sonable.’ They seem to have adopted Judge Black’s idea that a railroad is a public highway, aud Is to be regulated without regard to its proprietors. Judge Black’s letter is quoted largely, and glo ried over much, but I think its principles out to a handsome, well-grown clever youth of twenty. He was a fine shot and fond of sport, but from tlie first refused to make a business of shooting aud hunt ing. He was passionately fond of music and of all art, but rigorously limited tbe lndulgencerof his tastes. He had a strong turn lor the study of moral aud physical science, in either of which pursuits he might probably have made a name, but he denied himself, or at any rate curtailed to very narrow limits, this noblest of in dulgences. Setting all such temptations qnletly on one side, he devoted himself from the day of bis marriage to the earnest fulfilment of tboeo public duties which his position as tho husband of a constitutional Queen, as he saw it, not only entitled him hut made It incumbent on him to share. But hero he was at ouce met by jealousy on the part of tbe leading statesmen of that day which made tbe task of duty a singularly difficult one. It was only by reticence and patience, and, above all, self-effacement, that he could hope to overcome their prejudices. PBE9IDE.VPS REPORT.

Callaway,who, it will be remembered by alt tho readers ofthe News and Advertiser, killed Mr. I. P. Tison, in Leesburg, some two montli3 ago. For some reason, which wo may or may not properly understand aud appre ciate, everybody frum.Lee county whom we have approached upon the subject of this unfortunate Tison-Callaway tragedy, has invariably manifested what seems to us a fear to talk abouyt; aud for this rea son we were unable yesterday to obtain anything like full or satisfactory particu lars of Saturday night’s affair. About all that we could learn was that on Saturday night a negro man, whose name our Informant could not give, en tered Mr. Callaway’s store, exchanged friendly salutations with liim, and, watcL- ing for an opportunity, drew a murderous- looking knife and attempted to plunge it into Mr. Callaway before thc latter was even aware of his danger. Another r.cgro, who happened to he standing near bv,saw the suspicious movements ofthe man with the knife in time to deal liim a blow and save Mr. Calaway. Seeing that he bail been foiled in bis fiendish purpose, the would-be murderer retreated and made good his escape. These arc the particulars' as they arc reported to us, and, for the reasons above staled, wo give them a3 low wbispeijitm, and not as facts.- Albany News and Ad vertiser. The Lucky Numbers.

Sjutn Georgia Conference - Closing Day. Hawkixsville, December 12. During the afternoon session on yeeter day the board of education made their as sessment for tlie ensuing year. The statistical secretary made his final report. After some discussion, Columbus was selected almost unanimously as the place lo hold the next annual session of the conference, which meets in December, 1881. This is iu response to a very coi- dial invitation from the churches in Co lumbus. The Bishop announced the following as the Joiut board of finance for another year: Dr. K. W. Lovett, president; Rev. G. J, Griffiths, secretary; Rev. 8. 8. Sweet, treasurer; J. M. Mauldin, B. F. Breed love, J. P. Wardlaw, N. D. Morehouse, C. A. Moore, J. M. Jones, A. M. Braoan, C. M. Speer, Samuel Hayes, T. D.

The entire exercises were exceedingly interesting, while the singing was superb. NIGHT SESSION. The conference met at 7 o'clock and was opened by the Bishop. The minutes were read and approved. Tho usual resolu tion of tliauks was passed by a rising vote. The committee on memoirs, through their chairman Rev. J. B. KcGhee, made a report. The first memoir was that of Rev. Samuel Anthony, w'to died on tbe 3d of March, 1880. The second was that of Bishop David S. Doggelt, read by Rev. J. It. McCleskey. It was a most touching aud beautiful tributo to one of the foremost men of the age. Rev. Dr. Hinton delivered a eulogy upon the character of this great aud good matt. Rev. J. W.

As tbe session of the South Georgia Conference has ended aud we have a little breathing spell, I bsve tried to tske in some of tbe more important points about town. The new bridge across the Oc- mulgee is an eiegaut specimen of archi tecture as well as a substantial structure. The people of Hawkinsville are proud of it, ana well they may be. Tbe old meth od of crossing by lerrv, which belonged properly to past ages, had become so un certain and vexatious that people avoided the city because they could not cross the river without cursing, and it was always indispensable in returuiug to take a whiff or two of something braciug in ita charac ter. This w as damaging to the man and ruinous to the whole country. Since the bridge spans tho gulf men go home peace ably *aud sober. Besides being a great commercial blessing, it has been a won derful moral influence and reforming power. Another great inoral force and operat ing with good eliect upon the community, is tho Hawkinsville Dispatch. The citi zens arc proud of it and the Dispatch In proud ofthe city. Woods, the amiable, presides with dignity and conscious pow er. He is ever ready to defend bis peo- plo and commeud their virtues. He has done much for the entertainment ofthe Methodist conference, and is ready to ex tend the same hospitality to any ocher as sembly that may desire lo visit his city. I atn under obligations to him for courte sies. The brass hand is another institution of which any community might boast. Prof. Jacobi is one of the most efficient musicians in tbo State, and tinder his leadership the boys liave acquired a wonderful tact in handling their instru ments. The cotton warehouses arc al! of exten sive dimensions, and an immense amount of the fleecy staple finds its way within their walls. Hawkinsville is one of the best cotton markets in the interior. But with all of her facilities, there Is a block just how in the market for want ol trans portation. Another steamer arrived Sun day night, which will g» far towards lift ing tbe blockade. The railroad is doing all it can to afford facilities for tbe mov ing of the cotton, hut so large is tbe de mand for transportation at all points, that Supt. Edwards finds it impossible to meet eveiy case as promptly as be de sires. The stores are well filled, and seeming ly doing a good business, although some of them complained that‘the trade had fallen off in consequence of the inter- rnptcd transportation of cotton. Colonel John Henry is contemplating adding to his large retail trade all the features of the wholesale business, believing tbat he can compete with other points lor the traffic of tho country merchant. I havo been a week lu Hawkinsville and havo been the guest of Dr. A. R. Taylor and his excellent win.*, tt is a borne In tire fall some of the word; more would be superfluous. The hospi tality of Uawkinsville has never been more generously bestowed, and every guest carries away witli him nothing but pleasant memories of kiudnos3 and at tention shown. Whenever this city shall extend another invitation they can count ou a prompt response. The bringing of three or four hundred strangers Into a community, and having all of them leave with good impressions is no small achievement, but will greatly advantage the community. A multitude of prejudices are thus removed. Many of the visitors had uo idea Hawkinsville was or her resources. They were agreea bly disappointed both as to her size and material resources. I take my leave hurriedly and return to tbo routine work at the office desk. Jack Plane.' Evans; Butler, R. L. Wiggins; Reynolds mission, I. F. Carey; Buena Vista anil Mt. Gilead, S. D.

The history of a life through which ro mance winds with all ita mysteries, long ings and rejoicings as intense as ever thrilled thc human breast, lias just come to our knowledge. Although the culmi nation occurred iu another part of the State, we give tiie story,as it has not been made public there. * The Rev. Dr. Jones, who serves the Presbyterian church In this place and also tho one, in Roswell, North Georgia, has just given us the history of tlie iady who is the principal actor in this drama. Tbe lady, we believe, was a moinber of his church in the above named little place. During a recent visit she requested the doctor to negotiate some New York exchange (or her, as it could not be done there. Ho drew tiie money for her, and saw her on the train for Texas. She told him the money was sent to her by her long-lost husband, whom she bad believed dead for the last thirteen years. She was a New England lady, and in early lire had married a Mr. Prescott (who, by the way, is a relation of Press- colt, thc historian). They emigrated and sertled in (he far Weston the frontier. All went well with them, and Mr. Pres cott was growing in wealth. Finally de ciding to goto San Antonio, considerably farther toward tlie interior than where they first settled, lie gave her a large amount of money ami sent her by a boat down the river, while ho was to cross the country. They wore to meet in San Antonio, but have never since met. She was taken desperately Hi. Some designing parties planned to (kceive her, and made her believe her husband dead. They conveyed simi lar news to Mr. Prcscoit concerning hia wife, and were successful iu their designs to too last degree. Mrs. Prescott, feeling satisfied beyond all doubt tbat her hus band was dead,afterward* married a man whom we will call Mr. Jackson, and by some means di filed to Georgia aud settled in the little town of Roswell. Fourcbil- to them. Fortune that liad smiled so brightly on her early life was now changed, anti in casting about for resources u;x>n which she might draw, wrote to a lawyer in Texas inquiring if something could l>c had from the Pres cott estate. The astounding newt came back tbat Mr. Prescott was living. If tiie heavens ami earth had come to gether before Mrs. Jackson’s eyes her sur- prise would not have been greater. Mr. Prescott wrote aud urged her to come to him, expressing a willingness to take care of two ofthe stranger’s children, and sup posing that lie would want to keep the other two. Af r. Jackson was willing for her to return to her rightful husband, her first love. In this particular is it unlike Enoch Arden. Dr. Jones kindly saw thc H’ashtnylon Gazette. The White Vote.—T..e Cincinnati Enquirer shows that Garfield was elected by a minority vote ot tiie people of the United States of 313,675 votes, and that the majority of white votes against him was 1,513,885, there being a white vote for . him of 3,230,414, znd a white vote against Key, supernumerary; Swaineboro, W.
