THE COURTS. law for Common Carriers and mar ried Women. The Question of Damages by the Forfeiture of a Lease. More Partnership Injunctions—Enjoin ing a Husband. Bankruptcy Matters—Opinions Pub lished—Tho Courts Condensed. An interesting and important case, involving tho law as to the rights and duties of carriers upon our inland waters, has boon tried in tho Circuit Court before His Honor Judge Booth, aud a verdict rendered on Saturday. Tho ease was Dora Knapp against tho Union Steam boat Company and arose out tho loss of certain goods of tho plaintiff, which wore shipped by her at Mauoh Chunk, Penn., her former residence, about September 19, 1371, consigned to John Knapp, No. 895 Canton street, Chicago, Tho goods wore shipped by tho Lehigh -Valley Rail road Company, who agreed with plain tiff to send . the goods to Cblicago wa tho same route tho _ plaintiff came, . viz: Tho Pennsylvania Central and tho Pitts burgh and Fort Wayne Roads, and that she would receive her goods at tho same depot at which sho would arrive in Chlcogo. Tho goods, however, without her knowledge; were shipped by a different route, viz.: by railroad to Buffalo, and from thence by the propeller Roanoke, of tho Union Steamboat Company, to Chicago, whore they arrived on tho 20th of September, 1871, and wore burned In the warehouse of the' defendant (a frame building connected with tho Company’s dock on South Water street, fronting on tho river) in tho groat Chicago firo of October 9,1871. On tho trial, tho defendant proved that on tho arrival of Uio goods at Chi cago they mailed u written notv. 0 thereof to ‘“John Knapp, Chicago, Ills,/' without, giving tho street or number oT his residence, which ad dress tho defendant claimed, corresponded with ‘ tho marks on tho goods. Tho notice thus coot never reached tho consignee, bub was returned to tiro Company through tho mall, “not delivered.” No other notice of the arrival of tho goods was sent, and nono was received by tho consignee. Tho plaintiff is a married wo man, baring boon married in Pennsylvania sev eral years ago. A portion of tho goods wore owned by hor before marriage, aud tho remain der purchased slues her marriage with hor own oarulugs. Upon theso facts tho following ques tions of law arose: First j Could plaintiff, being a married woman, recover for tho loop of tho goods, or must tho notion bo brought- Gy tho husband ? Tho etntuto of Pennsylvania, as to tho rights of married .women, passed iu 1843, was shown to bo m sub stance the same as tho married woman's act of this State adopted in 1801. Upon tills tho Court hold that as to all tho goods, oxcopt those pur chased with her oarnuigo after marriage, eho was entitled to maintain tho action, but that those purchased with .her earnings after tho marriage. became by tho common *law tho property of tho husband, tho statute of Pennsylvania, In force at tho time not having changed tho common law as to tho wife’s earn ings, and under this ruling her .husband was hold to bo a competent witness for her under our statute. ■ Second: Must a-carricrr by water givo tho con signee notice of the arrival of goods ? Third : If so, was the notice.sent by the Com pany (If tho consignment mark included tho street and number of tho consignee, or reason able diligence could h&vo discovered the same) sufficient to discharge tho carrier’s liability ? The Court substantially charged tho jury that a carrier ny water must givo notice of tho arrival of goods; and that the notice must follow tho consignment-mark as given by tho consignor, or a reasonable excuse for not being able to give each notico must bo furnished before its liability oaa bo discharged. Tho jury gave a verdict for tho plaintiff, and assessed her damages at $853.18. Frank .1. Crawford and Adolph Moses for the plaintiff, and Ra© & Mitchell for the defendant. SAUAQESFOn LEASE FORFEITED B7 BANKRUPTCY. . A petition for review was, on Saturday, filed In tho United States Circuit Court by M. D. ‘ Wells & Co. in tho matter of Farnsworth, Brown & Co., bankrupts, as to tho decision of tho Dis trict Court on their petition to-have damages for the forfeiture of tho lease of tho promises occu- Eiod of them by the bankrupts of proceedings in ankrupty assessed, and ascertained, and to prove the same against tho estate ; alleging for cause tho following errors : In not directing, In accordance with See. 10 of tho Bankrupt Taw, the assessment of iho dam ages alleged in said petition to have boon sus tained, and which woro not controverted or de nied by the Assignee. In not directing in somo manner - tho assess ment of tho damages alleged to have boon sus tained by the petitioners as unliquidated dam ages arising out of a contract or promise of said bankrupts ond for which said Ibankrupts wore liable. Tho petitioners claimed tho sum of $12,000, tho rent being SIO,OOO per annum. UNHAPFI PARTNERS. Tbo end of copartnership quarrels Is not yot. In tbo Supremo Court, David Boed, of the firm of Bocd it Dawson, stone-work contractors, files a bill against James Dawson. Complainant and Dawson, entered into a verbal contract of co partnership, and have carried on business for some time very successfully, complainant sup plying tbo bulk of tbo capital and defendant tbo brains. Tho bill alleges that defendant baa boon in & state of constant intoxication for some tlmo past, and has, while nndor tho influence of liquor indulged in such unbusinesslike freaks, as making the workmen drunk, promising them ex traordinary increases of wages, compromising good debts at ridiculously low figures, soiling houses at prices that must havo delighted tho purchaser, and committing a number of other foolish acts which have led complainant to file tbo present bill. Ho asks for a dissolution of tbo copartnership, and for a Bccoivor to take tho estate of tbo firm in band, and bos obtained a temporary injunction from Judge Porter re straining tho defendant from collecting tbo moneys of tho firm and from compromising any claims it may have against parties, more espe cially a note of H. McCormick of $8,600. William Doselez, of tbo firm of Goutsock & Doseloz, sculptors, also seeks to free himself from tbo trammels of a troublesome partner, and files his bill in tbo Circuit Court against Edward Goutsock. He charges defendant with conspir ing against him to defraud him of bis Just naif of tbo profits of tbo business; wherefore he asks that the copartnership maybe dissolved and de fendant brought to answer, in a Court of Chan cery, tho charges complainant will bring against him, and, to secaro the future revenue of tbo firm, has obtained Judge Porter’s Injunction restraining him from collecting any more moneys of the firm.

McAlpino delivered an address at tho Cooper Union, lost evening, at tho Invitation of tho Chamber of Commerce, on “The Water Transportation of tho State of Now York, and Its Bearings Upon tho Commercial: Prosperity of tho City/’ Tnb following are tho material points : Ho said: In every country tho number, extent, and condition of the roads and ctmale, furnish, If not tho only criterion, at least a very good one of tho civilization of its people and tho power of Us Govern ment. Tho field of tho present inquiry is a broad ono, embracing tho extent of tho trade between tho food-producing inte rior and tho consuming and exporting sections of tho Atlantic slope—tho existing channels by which this trade is conducted—their capacity, and the cost of transport thereon, what im provements aud enlargements may bo advanta geously made; what new channels may bo pro fitably opened to moot tho existing and future demands of tbo trade between these sections, and lesson the cost" of transportation, and how these Improvements and now works may bo rendered conducive to tho interests of tho mer chants nnd citizens of Now York. Tho ter ritory, tbo trade of which is now to bo consid ered, is tho basin of tho Groat Lakes and of tho Upper Mississippi. This area contains one-third of tho population of tho Republic, produces an annual cereal crop of 900,000,000 bushels, and with tho products of pastoral agriculture gives an annual tonnage for oxport from that region of $10,000,000 or 812,000,000 a year. That portion of tho territory referred to .embraces tho ton Northwestern States and Western Canada ; and wo shall soon have to add to It tbo metalliferous districts of tho mountains and of tho Pacific States, with a portion of tho trade of tho Indies. Seventy years ago this region contained only scattered forts and trading posts—now it has ono third of tho population of tbe Nation. Tbo States of Pennsylvania and Virginia, ns well as the Canadas, havo eagerly, entered tho field of competition in tho vast trade of tbo in terior, and havo constructed immense works to secure theirportions of It, whileoorporoto enter prise has built groat lines of railways to'pen etrate tho interior, and to tap tbdir natural navi gable water linos. NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL ROUTES. Thoso natural linos areas follows First— The chain of great lakes and the St, Lawrence, bifurcating to Quebec, and by Lake Champlain and tho Hudson to Now York. Second— I Tbo Ohio Blvor, ond by portages over tho mountains to tbo Susquehanna, Chesapeake, and James. Third— Tbo Mississippi and Us navigable' tributaries, terminating on iho Gulf of Mexico. Each of those (except tbo last) have boon im proved by artificial works. Tbo groat trank railways extend from all of tbo important Interior centres of trado to tho Atlantic: Ffrsi—Through tho Canadas, to Quoboo and Portland. Second— Through this State, by two lines, to Now Vork and Boston. Third— Through Pennsylvania to Philadel phia. QFourtft— I Through Maryland to Baltimore; and, Fifth —Through tho Southern States to all thoir Atlantia and Gulf ports. In regard io the rival linos, Mr. MoAlpino said : First— l That tho winter rigors of tho Canadian outlet to tho Atlantic—Us intricate navigation and fogs—are seriously to its disadvantage. Second— That tbo Jong route by the Missis sippi, though cheap, carries Western products too far out of the great line of trade; and Its torrid climate is soinjurious to many of these products that that route is also loss advantageous. Third—' That the elevation of the water port ages which Pennsylvania and Virginia havo to overcome are so much more costly than ours: >Dd, ' Fourf/i—While tbo railway linos above desig nated, including any that can be made, involve a cost of transport so much exceeding that of tho improved and projected canals,-connecting, by the shortest portages, tho interior water lines of the West with tbo tlaal waters of the Atlantic, that we oau, as we have always heretofore done, offer to the Western producer, tho cheapest and best route to the seaboard. THE CANALS. It Is difficult to realize the importance of the Erie Canal, which now convoys one*fourth of the whole of the exports of that vast interior region, and as much of It during its elx months of uninterrupted navigation as all of the trunk railways together during the earns time. In tho busy canal seasons more than ISO boats come daily to tide-water, and tho Now York Central Itallroad traffic rarely exceeds thirty trains per day. The great canal traffic it not appreciated until some stoppage occurs, and then a delay of twenty-four hours will aocummnlatn hundreds of boats—>enougb to ffl) tho track of the Now York Central naif way from Albany to Utica. All of the Now York roads could not transport ono-balf, and tho eutlro capacity of all tho roads to the sea-board in their present condition would bo insufficient to convey tbo whole of it. Half tho merchants of New York, connected di rectly or indirectly with tWs canal traffic, would bo bankrupted, and their rivals In Port land, Boston, Philadelphia, and Baltimore would bo correspondingly benefited. Whatever may be said or done, the cheapest lino of trans port will carry the coarse agricultural products, and where they Are sold there will be tbo do* THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: MONDAY, Soelts of merchandise awaiting purchase; with loprocooda of tho saloof thoooproducts. The Edo O&nal has. until recently, brought tho trade of tho West to Now Yont,;imd, tor many years; has furnished tho cheapest lino of transport ; but It baa how' reached a point whore the railways have .become formidable competi tors for oven its own legitimate business, com bining, as thby do, greater certainty and celeri ty of movement, with charges (during tho sea son of navigation) but 111110 higher than those of tho cnnal.' Tho cause which has produced this diversion of business from (bo canals to tho rail ways Is mainly duo to the fact that tho latter is updor Individual management, while the for mer Is controlled by politicians." The railway companies oall Into their service men of tho highest order of ability, skill, expo? rionco, and business tact, each for his most ap propriate place. Contrast those with tho quail; licatlons of our canal ofllcors. If .one of tho best-paying railways In tho country was entrust ed :o ouch management/ Us rivals in business would eoud It Into bankruptcy In five years. rnorosho iMrnovKURNTB. Three years -hence, the Welland Canal en largement will bo completed, and vessels of 1,200 tons will bo able to come from tho extrem ity of tho lakes, and discharge Into canol-boata at Oswego, materially cheapening the coot of transportation to New York. lb.will thus bo soon that tho'Erlo Canal and Us enlargement to Buffalo, while It has performed Us functions and secured the Western trad? In Now York City, can no longer be used as a competitor of tho Canadian route to Montreal. Tuo largo pro pollers on long voyages can carry freight for 9 mills per ton per mile,,with a speed of ton miles an hour oh the lake, eight on tho rivers, and throe on tho canals, exclusive of tho time occu pied la passing tho locks, each of which may be considered an equal to a mile of extra distance. With ships of 1,200 tons on Lake Ontario, and only 160 miles from tido-wator at Montreal, the enlarged Erie Canal from Oswego will hardly bo ablo 16 successfully compote. The ship-canal from Oswego to tho Hudson,. by which such ships could go to Now York, becomes Indispensa ble, Tho other project is to convoy such ships from the Bt. Lawrence River, 10 miles west of Montreal, to Lake Champlain by a.ehip-canal of 85 miles and no locks, and from tho lake to tho Hudson by a similar canal with a few locks, and thence by a slack-water navigation to tido-wator on tho Hudson. An expenditure of $15,000,000 will accomplish this object, end permit vessels . of over 1,000 tons cargo to come from tho centre of tho continent, and discharge Into ocean ves sels without breaking bulk until they roach Now York. Tho Umo required by these routes, nnd allow* ing for tho extra timoin locking, Is eight days ■ botwoon Chicago aud Quebec or (by Lake; Champlain) to Now York, ami flftoou days by. tho Erie Canal, which may bo reduced to ton days when steam Is successfully introduced. : The introduction of steam, efficient manage- 1 moot, and low lolls will onaulo tho Erlo Canal to increase Its capacity from Buffalo, for through freight, and carry the- local- tonnage naturally belonging to It, to tho extent altogether of 4,000,000 tons per annum. Tho Welland Canal, as now built, la capable of carrying an oqual amount, say 4,000,000 tons, and if a considerable portion of this is delivered at Oswego, it will iin croaoo the capacity of tho Erlo by a million of .tons. Tho railways, as now built, hovo carried from tho basin of tho lakes to tide-water,, 4.000,- 000 of tons, and may bo tracked to givo them twice the capacity. Tho Welland, St. Lawrence,. and Champlain routo will bo almost unlimited in ■ capacity, and may bo considered as equal to from .10,000,000 to 20,000,000 of tons. . Tho Kanawha Canal, if knilt upon its present dimensions, would bo equal to 2,000,000. and, if properly en larged, to 5,000,000 of tons. CAPACITY FOB TRANSPORTATION, Wo now have an existing capacity of irons- Sort botwoon tho interior nnd the Atlantic sea card of 9,000,000 tons, nnd the moans of increas ing it (o 18,000,000 by Improvements, and to 80,000,000 tons annually by constructing now Hues. Those Western surpluses, which tho ex isting channels through tuo United States can not convoy, will seek tho St. Lawrence routo, and ho forwarded to our great foreign food-cus tomer, Great Britain, and with tho loss of this trade Now York will also lose tho sale of tho goods which such Western products will pur chase. Wo have soon that tho present produc tion of that groat West, whoso trade belongs to you Now-Yorkors, is now nearly twice as groat as tho capacity of tho existing'channels of transport. But it follow's that when such channels are overcrowded, tho charges for transport are correspondingly increased. At Chicago, Milwaukee, and Buffalo, tho receipts and shipments by water are from two to five times ns groat as by railway, aud at Albany and Now York ore nearly ton times os much. Now York is the depot for tho manufacturing, min ing, and commercial population of tho northern Atlantic seabord, consuming twice ns much of such articles as are exported, nnd therefore tho great entrepot is naturally at Now York. It is claimed by the Canadian authorities that the food imported from tho West into Now England can bo delivered by the Bt. Lawrence on routo and tho Gulf nnd const vessels cheaper than by tho Now York canals. Whether this shall bo dono by tho President’s proposed now water routo from tho Ohio southeastward, or by the Kanawha Canal to Norforlk, or by Lake Cham plain or Oswego Ship Canal routes,remains to bo determined. The Federal Government, as the conservator of the interests of all our people, is called upon to restrain tho present enormous di version of trade into the Canadian markets. TELEGRAPHIC ABSORPTION, Proposed Control of the Pacific nml Atlantic I))’ the Western Union* From tho Few Vork Tribune, Mau 0. For flomo time past Iho ofSlcinla of the Western Union Telegraph Company have been consider ing tho advisability of securing the control of the Hues of. Pacific and Atlantic Telegraph, with a view to increasing thoir present facilities and preventing unprofitable competition. . Matters, however, bad not appeared favorable to a union of Interests until tbo election at Pittsburgh, Pa., on Tuesday, of a now Board of Directors favora ble to a harmonious arrangement between tho , two companies. A committee of conference with tbo western Union Company has boon ap pointed by iho now Directors, and a meeting of the representatives of both companies will prob ably bo bold at an early date to consider tho sub ject of transferring tbo control of tho Pacific and Atlantic to tbo Western Union. It is understood • that tho basis of tho proposed arrangement is to bo tbo transfer of a portion of tho shares bold in reserve by the Western Union for a controlling number of shares in tbo Pacific and Atlantic at a rate to bo agreed upon, tho Western Union shares being worth much more than tbo Pacific and Atlantic. The capital stock of tbo latter Company Is $2,000,000. It has a lino from Now York to Philadelphia and Baltimore. From each .of those points linos nm west to Pittsburgh, thonco to Columbus, Ohio. From Columbus a lino runs to Cincinnati, Louisvlllo, Nashville, Mom- Shis, and Now Orleans, and another west to In ianapolls and St. Louis. Another Hao runs from Columbus to Chicago. From St. Louis a lino ex tends up tho Mississippi Bivor to St. Paul, con necting at Dubuque with a line to Chicago, With tho erection of tho Western Union Tele graph building will bo Introduced now and im proved modes of local telegraph communication. President Orton for some time post has boon considering tho subject of tbo obstruction to telegraphing caused by tbo disarrangement of tho numerous wires auovo tbo surface of tho ground and the boat means of overcoming tho samo. He therefore instructed tbo officials of the Western Union Telegraph Company who wont abroad on a tour of Inspection .and con ference with engineers and electricians to study the pneumatic system of communication and tbo wonting of tbo telegraph wires underground. Upon the presentation of tbo report of those gentlemen and tho completion of the now build ing, experiment* will bo made, and If practicable, wires will bo placed under ground and a system of pneumatic tubes be established. It is ex pected that this will obviate much of tbo trouble which now arises from tho disarrangement of wires by storms and from other causes, while by (be latter arrangement messages from tho numerous sub-stations In the city, now requiring as much for transmission to the main omco on Broadway as from tbo latter place to Chicago, will be placed In boxes and dispatched Instan taneously to tbo general office.
