According to tho agreement, Willard was to fur nish an Abstract showing a good title to. the land, which was furnished to complainant, who sub mitted it for examination to liis attorney, who made objections thereto on account of the fore closure made by Willard under tho Boggs mort gage, which ho hod purchased. 'Willard and ‘Fitch then undertook to remove the difficulty. A result of their Inquiries was a suit brought by Qoorgo Boggs to •et aside tho sale made by Willard, and to re deem. - This suit was interesting, inasmuch as it involved the question of tho rights of parties Who stayed, during Iho war, within tho rcboj linos, Bogga’ claim for qq annulment of tho solo » being baaed on tho fact that, at tho time of tho foreclosure of the mortgage, in 1802, ho woa at Now Orleans.

Tbo tender was declined by Harris. Boobo & Co., and' complainants paid tbo $9,000 back to tbo bank who surrendered tbo note as agreed, but retained tho lodgment notes.

TUE COURTS IN BRIEF. In tho c&so of Dole, administrator, t. Divine et al., particulars of which woro published yos torday, the jury relumed a verdict finding de fendants not guilty. In Judge Booth’s Court tho case of Wright Bros. v. tho City of Chicago was commenced. Ibis is an action brought to recover $1,600 dam ages for tho loss sustained by plaintiffs, on 3d October, 1809, of a . wagon and two horses, which, on the night of that day, by reason of tho alleged lack of light in tho vicinity of tho Wells street draw-bridge, walked Into tbo river, tho bridge being open, and were ongulphed. Tho case went to tbo Jury at a late hour. In Judge Rogers’ Court the c&eo of ©strum v. Hardy was tried. This was an action brought by plaintiff to recover S2OO. Tho circumstances of tho caao are as follows : A short time before tho flro Hardy had boon sent for by plaintiff to con duct a case for the partition of real estate. Tho case had originally boon in tho hands of Col. Bragg, and plaintiff gavo defendant the sum of S2OO wherewith to pay that gentleman for services rendered iu tho case. Tho fire occurred shortly afterwords, and defendant claimed that tho amount whioh ho had put iu his safe was destroyed. Plaintiff, however, urged that, inas much as Hardy kept an account current at a bank, it was more than probable that ho had de posited the money, and brought suit to recover tho amount. In Judgo Farwoll’e Court, tho case of T. Hollhan v. Henry Fuller, Thomas Courtnov, ot sl.,was com menced/ This is on action on tho part of plain tiff to redeem certain properly in Calumet, and to aottlo up tho affairs of an old partnership, in 1807, between Fuller and Holihan, and also a mechanics' lien caao. brought by Courtney against tbo Calumet avonuo property, originally in tho Superior Court.

From Our Otrn Correspondent, Washwotoh, Mny 11,1813. Tho Chief Justice hns passed away, leaving a very sound, upright, and steadfast fame, highly grateful to hit* friends and family. A few points of his caroor are presented In ray letter. A 8 A FINANCIER. Mr. Chase’s study of finance war not Merely tho result of bis appointment to tho head of tho Treasury 5 he had boon Solicitor of the Brauoh Bank 0/ tho United States at Cincinnati as early as 1888, and bo was compelled to learn banking in order to vindicate himself as Solici tor. After bo was made Governor, tho celebrated conflict between the systems of State slock and banking took place, with himself to select which was preferable. His clear mind is said never to have shown out bettor than iu the decision bo mado in this case. 1!I8 RELATIVE RANK. In conversation with several capable won of Ohio, I have derived some idea of Ohaoo’a rela tive standing in tho State; all pronounce him su perior, os a scholar, and oxocutivo spirit, to any body produced in that Commonwealth. Justice KoLcan, who was considered an ornament to the Dench, was quite a minor spirit hosido Chose. Tom Corwin wos more brilliant and fully as ver satile, but ho lacked tho method, command over tho appetites, and height of manhood, of, tho late Chief Justice. Ohnso lived to survive the vigi lance of ail the public men of the State. Vollon dighnm, although a bitter Bourbon, was passion ately anxious to make Ohaso President of tho na tion; Judgo Payno, of Cleveland, whom Chase boat for Governor by a few hundred votes only, told mo that ho had boon surprised to soo hia former opponent rise to tho height of successive occasions and positions as Governor, Senator, Financier, and Justice. George 11. Pendleton may count amongst the victories of a superficial life tho defeat of Ohaso ns tho Democratic oandi date for tho Presidency. Had Chase boon nom inated in Now Votk, in 180S, tho Now Departure would hayo boon taken four years in advance of tho Baltimore acquiescence. Horatio Seymour’s 1 mingled weakness and craft prevented Ohaso a victorious nomination by tho Now York Conven tion. Vnllandigham, according to an arrange ment, was to propose tho nnmo of Seymour, and then Seymour was to decline tho compliment, and call upon tho Convention to bo wise and magnanimous and take Mr. Chase. Volloudig ham made a most eloquent speech, which ex cited tho Convention, so that, when Seymour arose, the outhuslsom was unbounded. "Vallon- watched Seymour with anxiety, and said to ono hosido him: “ Why I tho d d fool is going to accept it." Accept it Seymour did, and | was nearly elected to tho osylum. Mr. Seymour has probably never consod to regret that ho had not more firmness of purpose. Ohnso would probably have carried tho Stale of Ohio in tho campaign of 18G8 ; and, had ho been defeated, bis run would have boon so splendid that, with health, ho would have been renominated in RIB DOMESTIC RIFE. Tho Chief Justice was three limes married to rouug and handaomo womoa. Hlb flrnt wife,' talciGaincss, was tho daughter of a wealthy Cincinnatian, who was tho originator ot tho Omo Ljfo and Trust Companv,—that concern whoso disastrous failure precipitated tho panic of 1857. This lady Wfxa truly beloved by Mr. Chaso, and it woo tho romantic passion of his life. Ho preserved her letters, portrait, and souvenirs of affection, to tho last, and thoy-woro tho most prized of fife offootu. This Jody woa a brunette; she had two children, both deceased, Hho second Mrs. Chase was Lydia Smith, of Cin cinnati. mother of Mrs. Sprague. Tho third- Mw. Chase, mother of Mrs. Keltic Hovt. was Sarah 801 l Ludlow, a superb woman. She al ways addressed tho Chief Justice, for somo quaint reason, as “ ray dear Peroival/’ The two children of the Chief Justice havo boon subjects of his wide, and perhaps of his ambition in later ream. Excepting Martha Jefferson, wo have not lad m eminent life any daughter who hao made the promotion of her father so much a matter of heart as Mrs. Sprague. sumner’s last visit to chase. Tho final interview, at tho residence of Sena llolr.Bi)rilffll?i between Senator Sumner and tho Chief Justice, was of that character to give re spect and tenderness to tho closing period of two groat careers. Mr. Sumner and Mr. Chase wore associates m the Sonata before tho Republican Rrty was fairly on its foot. Both had tooa elected by a coalition in itself cptophinontary; for. when great par ties disband for tho uako of- personal character, it may bo Inferred that there is sotne tiing exceptionally groat in tbo individuals hon ored. There iu much talk in our day about fealty aul party-loyalty, as if a constant Bon Wade was of moro consequence than a bolting Chase, or as if tbo Chief Justice of tho Court of Claims wasto bo preferred in history to his cosmopolitan col league. Carl Sohurz. Tbo Republican party, at its best, was a bolt to begin with. It was bora in defection, and great when it came to great men, instead of foliowing cartridge-box reputa tions. Mr. Sumner differed from Mr. chaso iu his excess of impetuosity; his nature waastrong er, but tho arch of his character narrower. At the Impeachment-trial, ho shoved some impatience with Mr, Cbnso’s slow and caio * Joportmoat and manifestly growing dislike of the Impeachment programme. ■ In this trial Chaso prevailed, as ho has on ovory occasion of i « fl » vo • at drawing of tho Presi dential prize. Mr. Johnson was rebuked by a largo vote in favor of hia deposition, hut his ollleo was not disgraced. Had ho boon convict ed, tho President of the United Staton by suc cession would havo boon a man of hull-hcndod mrts, who cast his vote every timo in tho lino of his own olovation. Thus, by a sort of poetic justice, Mr. IVado was repaid for leading a fac-’ t on of envious follnwp to tho Chicago Conven tion, m 1800j to defeat Mr. Chase's nomination for tho Presidency. It would bo in admirable context to place sido by side the speeches of Sumner and. Chase iu that early period when thoy contended together against tho Kansas and Nebraska hill. Mr. Blun der o speeches woro liko tbo charge of Murat, de signed to break tho enemy’s centre. Mr. Chases woro Impersonal, and lull of that moral power which expresses the proph ?°X. of too „ Present, and, replies to it with an anticipation of tho decision of pos terity. Not men of consonance, and both too groat and imperious to bo in accord while in tho hiHty vigor of public career, it la a pleasing ohap tor to see tho invalid Senator from Maaaaohu flotisiu tho magnanimous part of a visitor to the Justice, brought together again In tho soft ened emotions of mutual pain, memory, and ap preciation. Mr. Sumner said to Mr. Chaso, „ when they mot on Friday prior to tho death of * the latter: God bless you! I’m glad to havo soon you again)” 1“W , nn interview of a manly and noblo sort, probably such a ono as contemporary statou inon seldom havo. Ono who hoard an account fi <mghti to rank with thofrionil fllup of latter days between Jefferson and Adams. m\ Chaso said, on ono occasion, to a gentleman Iw 1 not , <1U0t0: “Mr. Sumner is greatly my superior as a scholar, anti ir»t bOUt o."t‘ ! thet Chase hsii the area ami education of the Vest m^ifc U !™ lfir inherited tho intense and aggressive rof °rm against despotisms, whether i chartered or unoiini lored, irliioh a Massachusetts !IV' I a D 1 K '!

Ilia movomonta became hia stature,— alow, ponderous, majestic. Ho waa not. however, so dull as Washington; for ho -bad a ■very pretty and quaint humor,' i; ~, , became him, and did not diminish his dignity. This talent of humor waa accompanied with a balf-twhiklo. 'which cap tivated men and women. Pew men in, our his tory havo boon more gallant and successful In ladies company, and with both sexes ho waa potential without being arbitrary; lie belonged to a good .country family, but poverty was hia lot, and ho outrode it without showing any of tho marks of abrasion.

MEQLECTED. Ifc Is tho belief of many persons that Mr. Chase could have boon nominated for the Presi dency m place of Franklin Pierce, inlßSa. and successfully, had ho weakened but a little on the slavery issue; but fate reserved Idm, like Moses, to look over at that promised station from the greater height of hio own character. Tho har mouy of parts, and. the equal capacity of Mr. Chase mso many directions, are rather'to : the' disadvantage of his fame. Ills ITAIUttOKjOUB NATUT.B, Ho performed everything ho undertook so woll that wo miss in his life thoso episodes of necessity and frailty by which our weakness comprehends groat mon. Ho had thoso buoyant abilities which rloo with ease to surmount every wave which confronted his'career: and none who undertakes to comment upon tho Present period will' fail to wonder that, politician as ho was, Chaso could so rapidly and thoroughly organize a financial sys tem which provided tho army and navy of tho Union .with umplo means from tho beginning to the end, however vast tho outlay, and loft us tho inestimable advantage of a currency which

Is m itself au element of strength, safety, and union, lime was when a sot of..loafers around a State Capitol, as Arkansas or Mississippi, could' flood tho Union with scrip and bills which wore as dangerous as tho system was scandalous. To have been tho father of tho greenbacks " was to have begotten a posterity infinitely enlighten- ; xng and missionary in its character over all prior forms of circulation. Next to our language, wo, ought to look perhaps to our currency as tho groat artificial element of comfort. The abuse of Notional Banks after tho conclusion of the War was as annoying to Mr. Chase ■as to any observer, and ho did not hesitate though superficial opinion-, called him in consistent, to proclaim that his cuironcy was not designed to protect meanness, and to apply to obligations negotiated Ih‘ time i of peace on a coin basis. As lie had mot slavery iu its period and tho War in its period, hornet ‘.law and honor in their period as well. If anything wore wanting to complete his fame, it would bo tbo class of childish criticism ’which, when the f;rent man's head is fallen, ventures its miserable ittle retort by saying that, as a Chief Justice, ho did not aim to make the Bench his personal Mndlcation, and that he was a disappointed cm ddato for tho Presidency,. Disappointed ho wts, and not so much to ms mortification na to our*, who have fallen into tho hands of Cheap Jaelu, some of whom have probably, never* rood' tbo Constitution of the united States.

Nothing can bo moro lucid than bis stylo, and there nro no in genuities of expression or statement in it. Ho was propelled from nothing', but reasoned out his way.

The objection that Is made to him is that ho decided against tho mtorerts of the farmers In tbo oolebratod Chi cago, Alton & St. Louis Railroad caso, which was appealed from McLean County. Bo far aa this decision is concerned, ;'th&*Court was unanl- : '.mousln the opinion, aud It is hardly probable' decision could bo mado with such unan imity, unless the Constitution and the law wore ' as tho court decided It would have boon of nd avail to us to bayo gained a decision la our" Supremo Court which would bavo boon te- l upr ;n° Court of unit °d States, But in tbla -very case.

Mr. A. M. Craig. who assumes to bo tbo farmers candidate for Supreme Judge, la also wou known to üb. Ho was never elected Circuit Judge of this district, as bos been frequently stated. Tho highest judicial office ho oyer bold was County Judge of this county. Ho started out m bis practice of law several years ago, by taking c&aoa for tho farmora against tho C,, B. i Q. Railroad Company, tho only railroad running. through this county. As he woa adi-oit m selecting juries, it was necessary that ’ he should be silenced, and the. Company com menced to employ him. Ho ia to all intents and purposes a railroad man, receiving every year more or less foes. In case farmers’ stock is • kUIocL he la expected to discourage them from bringing suit against the Company, aud to advlso .settlement when applied to as counsel, and In every jury case in this county ho appears for tivat Company when tho Compauy is a party. In tho celebrated caso of J. T. Clark (late Road- Master of tho 0., B. «k Q.,) v. Tho City of Oa’os burg, in which tho ‘ C., B. &Q. was tho real plaintiff, and tho object was to enjoin tbo city from holding an election on tbo ques tion of Issuing bonds for the construc tion of a competing road, to afford relief from monopoly from which this county suffers moro than any other, Craig was tho attorney for tho Chicago, Burlington & Quincy, aud in tho man agement of this caso was a party to proceedings utterly uujuatiflablo by any recognized rules of professional propriety. Tho course of Mr. Craig os member of tho lata ' Conatitutional Convention is entirely consistent with his position os a railroad attorney. Wbila every anti-monopoly man was active in devising schemes to'briug tho railways to terms, Craig" ’ , never once opened his mouth, but was privately plotting against them. Wo llnd him cheek by jowl with all the railroad attorneys In tho convention, and always either voting against anti-monopoly measures or dodging, .This was so notorious at tho time of the convention, that It was frequent ly remarked upon in this comity. Wo find Craig engaged with Mr. Buxton, tho attorney of tho Ohio «t Mississippi Railroad, and that ho signed what ia known as tbo original Buxton report. Tho objoot of those railway attorneys like Craig aud Buxton, was to got a provision into tbo Con- ' stituilon which, white It would seem to bo In tho interest of tho farmers, would really tie thoir hands. Tho Buxtou report was of course repu diated by tho convention. Now, a word in regard to the Princeton Con vention and Mr. Craig’s nomination. Tho only delegations to that Convention having any thing like an appearance of, having been regu larly appointed to represent anybody, wore Henry, 11 \ Bureau, 10; Knox, 12 s Putnam, 2: Warren, 8; Grundy 6$ that is, there wore only forty-eight delegates elected by constituencies. Of these three-fourths wore in favor of Judgo Lawrence. Poorla County was represented by sovoU or eight persons appointed without any ’ authority, in tho oflice of Mr. Dowdall, editor of tho I'coria Democrat , who woa never a farmer in hio- life, Tha full vote of LaSalle County (18) was cast by four or tivo persons from tho neighborhood of Mondota, also without regular appointment, Woodford County was represented by two per sons without authority, who. as we aro informed, arc partners in business, soiling ogriculturalim pioinoats. Marshall Comity was represented by a few volunteers; who cast six votes with no au thority. Throe men represented tho votes of Morcor. No County Convention was hold in that • county. ■ All of these bogus delegations and volunteers were for “anything to beat Lawrence.” The President of the Convention, J. G. Bane, is; as wo aro informed, a , railroad station agent, and wont fo''Princeton on a‘ froo ; pass. Tho Chairman of tho Committee on Resolutions,- ' Justus Stephens, had a pass on tho Oi, B. & Q. • lu his pocket, The candidate nominated by the Convention. Craig, is a railroad lawyer. .• A convention thus constituted could' scarcely ’ •' be ■ expected to' represent the wishes of tho farmers throughout tho district, aud no former in this locality regards its action oa of the least •importance whatever. 'Wo havo tried.Judge Lajvrohco for mauy years, and know him to bo a capable and..tmo man, aud wo behove’that ou* V ‘ interests too far safer in bis bands than in tbo * bands of "a railroad attorney who bob shown ' ‘ himself capable of representing a railroad'com* pany in the Constitutional Convention,, Instead of tho farmora who elected him.
