THE COURTS* End of the Vall-lglcliart Big taiiil Suit. Judge Gory Benders a Decision. •Worth S3OO,QUO to the i Vails. il Bankruptcy Matters—Tho Lamar Ac counts—Tho Courts in Brief,' ’ Tbo ooso of Mrs. Vail and daughter against Asa Vail and Nicholas P. Iglohart was concluded yesterday afternoon, Judge Gary slopping tHo . progress of the ooso/and depriving Mr. Beach, counsel for plaintiff, of tho pleasure of making! his speech in tho presence of a deeply Interested,; .andalso interesting, audience, to render Ills) decision* tho nataro of which'probably made upj for Mr. B’a disappointment.' The salt' was* brought by plaintiffs fqr-tbo specific porforiri-j ancO of a contract by defendants. The original contract was mado Juno. 23, 1860, between ;Asal Vail and Nicholas P, Iglohart,. by which' contract, in consideration of certain things 1 done by Vail, tho contract,, so far as ho, Vail, was concerned, was fully executed; the con- 1 sldorailon being fully paid, By tho contract m question in this suit, Iglohart agreed to convoy' to Mrs. E. P. Vail and her mluorchUdron, within four months, tho.W. K of N. W. H aud S. W; H ' of 800. 9, T. 37, N. It. 14, containing 210 acred, t nearto and-castof Washington Heights. -The; clause,of tho contract under which tho liability l is claimed is as follows:. “Iglohart agrees bb follows: Within four months from this time to secure to Mrs. Ellen P. Vail aud her minor children, In a proper legal manner, free from all incumbrances or Uena, tbo land this day con voyod in Section 0. T. 37, N. R. 14. so that tho same may bo bold by her as a homestead and for her and her minor children’s sole use in foe simple.” Tho land was incumbered to tho amount of. about SO,OOO at tho time tho contract was entered into, which in cumbrance. as will bo soon, Iglohart agreed to remove. At the time tho contract was entered into tho laud was valued at about $16,000 ; it la now worth more than $250,000. Tho defense setup was that Mrs. Vail'look; in lieu of tho 240 acres of land, two mules, a wagon, and SBOO in cash ; the statute of limitations, payment, of taxes, Bona fide purchaser’s laches, and all tho usual de fenses. After hearing the arguments for the de fense, and before tbo plaintiffs’ counsel had a chance, the Court delivered' tho following: de cision : In my judgment, all tho Janguago about homestead ts of no coußcquoncc ; It la not of tho essence of iUo arrangement between the parties at all; tho cozul'loS atlon between Vail and Islehart was entirely pecuni ary; bilk tbo reason moving Iglehart to require tho property to bo conveyed was, that hla sister and her children should have thobenefll of It. That reason dot the consideration for the transfer—was hla affco tlon for her and her children. Then there is tho use of the language “ homestead." It was used in no such sense as that tho parties woro to. go and llvo there. There is no limitation, condition, precedent or subsequent, tbat it shall bo used as a homestead. It Js an agreement that ho will convoy it to her and her children, bo that eho may havo a homo for her children. To my mind this is a case of a clear: explicit agreement to convey a certain prescribed quantity of land for a past consideration, which tbo panics themselves estimated and treated as a sufficient consideration. Whether it was, or. was not, it la not jny purpose to inquire. They estimated it and treated sufficient consideration. Tho incumbrance on the land In 1860 is said, in general terms, to have boon all that tho land is worth. It scorns to me very-clear that Iglohart had in expectation.that, in someway not now disclosed, ho was going to negotiate and lift this incumbrance, by sotno sort of an operation, other than by paying cash for it. Ho was defeated in that expectation. After tho contract of tbo 22dof Juno, 1860, there was nothing left to bo done except to con vey tho 240 acres of land, and there waa a clear, ex plicit, and absolute agreement to do that dear of incumbrance within four mouths. Tho payment of taxes on tho land cuts no figure, because bo bad agreed to convoy It clear of incumbrance, so that (ho longer ho bold it tho greater tho amount or taxes which bo would havo to get out of tho way, in order to convoy It dear of incumbrance. All that ho had to do to got rid of thoso taxes at any tlmo was to perform that agreement. When parties havo solemnly put their engagements into writing, after negotiations running through mouths, and amended, at tbo Umo of execution, tbo phraseology which did not suit, and bavocomotoarosting-placo; persons intelligent and capable, with no circumvention and no advantage on either side; when such havo come to that result, I oonnot iUsturo it upon the uncertain testimony of persons as to all sorts of things which aro not in tbo writing. I think tbat tho complainants aro entitled to m decree that the loud shall bo conveyed to them in feo simple. • Robert Rao and J. W. Boach aro solicitors for firs.

Morris was triad. Plaintiff sought to rocoyerslo,ooo damages for an alleged trespass on the caao. His effects, consisting of a full stock of saloon fixtures and liquors, which complainant avers bo casually lost; and they then came into defendant’s possession by find* Ing; defendant’s version being that tboy wore sold by plaintiff’s landlord for back rent and purchased by defendant. Tbe cose is almost devoid of interesting features. It stated that an appraisement of tbe value of tbo property was made before tbo fire by throe experts, one of whom lu a Deputy in tno Circuit Court, but tholr appraisement was burned up In tbo groat fire, and now comes a parly who is willing to swear that the throe appraisers wore drunk at tbo tlmo tboy viewed tbo goods, and their ap !>ralsomont is therefore valueless. Tbo throe oily exports are now called upon to swear that boy wore not drunk, and, as one of them re* marks, “it is a very difficult thing to swear (bat ouo was not drunk on a certain duy a couple of years since." Tbo case will probably bo concluded to-mor row. JTJDOB POETEE’S COUET. In tho suit of Bobiasoa v. Achoff. In which plaintiff sought to rooovor damages for the at , logod. trespass of defendant.

COMMON SENSE AND THE COURT-HOUSE QUESTION. To the EdUor of The Chicago Tribune Bin: It was with pleasure that I road this morning your admirable editorial on “Tho Oourt-Houeo Plane.” Its Bound and aonsiblo suggestions must bo approved by every lover of justice. Tho present' Committed is evidently unfitted for its work. Among them are able, honest, and conscientious mon,—mon who, by their faithful services to tho city, aro entitled to tho high con sideration of tboir follow-citizens.. But what, pray, do they know of tho rules and principles of architecture ? Wo dosiro to oroot In this city as grand a pioco of architqoturo os ample moans, united with gonius, can command. Wo wish something that will stand tho criticism of tho future,—some thing that will strike ovory ono as a model of excellence and beauty,—into which no sordid questions of Bolf-lntorost, shall in any dogroo havo entered. This ia tho common desire of onr citizens and of tho press. No ono wishes to dis parage tho present Committee; but ovory sonsi blo member will confess that ho is utterly un fitted to decide a question so technical and pro found. Thor con no more dooido this question with truth than they would bo ablo to docido upon tho comparative merits of forty-nine of tho greatest musical compositions of tho ago.’ Musio and architecture aro flno arts. None but artists can properly understand or docido artistio questions. To build a Oourt-Houso on tho judgment of incompetent mon wonld bo to throw away millions, and also render ourselves, by our blunders, tho laughing-stock of tho world. Tho vory greatness of tbo task demands tho exorcise of tho most experienced,skill. It de mands more x It requires tho most ontlro and absolute impartiality. A committee composed of citizens, or of homo artists, coulduotpossibly fulfill this latter requirement. Every man is swayed, to a greater or loss dogroo, by projudico, by interest, and by tho lufluonoo of others. Lot, thoroforo, no man in Chicago havo any thing whatever to say aboak Ibis matter, in tho capacity of judge. Any deviation from this rulo would prove to bo a fatal orror. To rofor tho decision of tho question of architecture to-mon who havo no knowledge of that noblo art, Booms to mo as.insano a proceeding as to rofor to them tho decision of eomo mathematical, or chemical, or philosophical question, concerning' which thoy havo not tho slightest acquaintance. Aid. McGrath’s proposition, to refer tho whole matter to tbo decision of throo architects outside of this city, is tho simplest and .boat proposition, by. far, that has yot boon suggested. It ought to bo unanimously adopted. If it is not, thoro will bo somo grounds to fear that there is something'moro than ignorance con nected with tho contradicloiy action of tho Com mittee thus for. A jury of Chicago architects should not for a moment bo considered. It would bo a farce I It would be impossible for such a Jury to como to a conclusion satisfactory to tho public. Tho world is auspicious, and there is good reason why mankind in tho mass are suspicious. - Our most trusted men are constantly falling before temptation, in its different and Insidious forms. Society, therefore, cannot bo too careful in whom it reposes trust, nor can it guard itself too strongly. Tho plan proposed by Mr. McGrath seems as near perfection as auy plan can bo which aims at securing justice to tho forty-nine competing architects; and to tho scouring for this city tho really best planj of those which have keen sub mitted. Tho best plan may not bo tho ono displaying tho greatest degree of external beauty. Every*, thing must bo considered,—utility as well as - beauty. Some of tho plans, as every ono can see," although very attractive without, aro absolutely impracticable within, and could by no possibility answer tho main purpose for which tho building is to bo erected. The best plan is the ono combining tho moat utility with tho highest degree of Ideal beauty: perfect convenience within, —simplicity, grand-' our, and beauty without. To determine upon tho host plan,—the plan which will give satisfaction to all except a few conceited Idiots,—it would bo hard to doviso a bettor plan than tho ono submitted by Aid. Mc- Grath. It would bo eminently just to all; and, boyoud question, tho final decision would bo one that no man of sense would object to. It would bo honest, aud entitled to profoaud rospoot. Now, if tho Aldermen and other members of the present Committee - are ns modest men as they ought to bo, they will promptly relievo themselves of on undesirable responsibility, and accent without reservation tbo plan suggested by Mr. McGrath. Otherwise, it may be suspected, in this suspicious world, tnat they have ends in view which do not appear upon tho surface of affairs. I caunot imagine anything more proper than to allow our Mayor to select the three architects from the three other cities, to constitute the now Committee, Ho will act with discretion. Mayor Medlll is a man of uncommon good sense, nor is ho inclined to overestimate himself, nor to depreciate the merits of others. Ho Is a lover of justice, and mav safely bo entrusted with this selection. lie does not claim to bo a great architect, or a poet, or musician, or to bo an infallible judge of tilings whoro bo knows but little. Cut ho has a practised judgment and an honesty of purpose that will enable him to select a compe tent jury of disinterested architects, who will most readily and satisfactorily solvo the knotty problem that has so much troubled the present Committee, and so greatly wearied and disturb ed the general public. It will not bo possible to plonso every one, — particularly the architects whoso works aro not selected. But who expects to ploaao every one ? There are men who never have boon pleased, nor over will bo in this world, nor in any. other. They came into tho world to gruroblo, and grumbling they will go out of it; and grumble they will, perhaps, to all eternity. It Is not worth whilo to take such people into account. They arc dead weights that tho city must put up with and carry along. In tlio erection of such a building ns tho now Court-House, it is unwise to uot in haste. Tho idea must bo made perfect before it is embodied in stone. Everything great it) this world comes out of tho mind. It is tho miud that fashions matter into oil its multifarious forms of useful ness and beauty. Beauty is not a chemical com fiound. It is something more ethereal and more mo than anything that tho Positive philosophy over dreamed of. A beautiful building wo must have, and one that will stoud for generations, a monument to Us builders, and an honor to the city, J.

Tho Committee on the Court-House plane mot yesterday afternoon in Kentucky-Block, in Bccretßoaßtou.- -Mayor DlodlU was tidt but the other members woro. .With regard to those secret sessions, tho public, who are inter ested in.hndwing.whnt transpires with,regard to those plauq, naturally Inquire, tho object of the Committee In excluding 1 reporters. ' To ascertain what this object is, It nloybo as well to mention that no vote was taken upon-' tho question, hut tbatAld. Ogdon desired that .they - bo. 1 excluded/ and tho other .members,- not observing at the time tho significance of this wish,out of courtesy to' ' dnd ’of their number ' made no stir In tho matter. Tho janitor received his 1 orders ; from Mr, 1 Ogdon to admit no body, and hooco tho press was kept in thooroti cal ignorance of the doings. of tho Committee, and practically gavo to the public the main points of (bo mootings. In order to ascertain what thd’ Committee thought upon tho subject, a reporter interviewed several -of tho members. They.' invariably ox* pressed their willingness to allow the reporters in, stating that they said and did-nothing of which thoy wore ashamed.. Tho Committee will moot again this afternoon to continuo tho work bo : gun yesterday, and a motion will bb raado to admit tho press, a majority of the Committoohaving ox prossod themselves ready to cany it. As thero is no danger of Mr. Sturgis* plan, No. 8, receiving anything mote than u a complimentary vote,”— as Mr. Ogdon has always succeeded in squeezing this out of tho Committee, and as his position .with regard to , that plan is now understood,—, perhaps oven ho will withdraw his personal objection.' - On Wednesday, a week ago, tho Committee amused themselves by reducing tho total num ber of plans to six, having paved tho way to this action by previously 1 selecting;sixteen, out of whloh the . six wore chosen. Yesterday they proceeded ‘to extend tho six to . six teen, thus making preparations to inoludo once moro ;tho first forty nine." While this oscillation appears puerile. If it does any good, so much the better. But surely If. the.: Committee aro so thoroughly ashamed of it that.thoy wish to keep it secret, lot them drop It.’ Their honest Catholicity was Interrupted by' tho falling of tho shades of night, whioh ; out tholr labors,, and compelled them to adjourn until to-day. ' They took up No. 1 again, and tho merits of thodosignof Messrs. Bank in «t Guernsey wore onco moro dis cussed. but that plan aooms dead beyond oven galvanic resuscitation. No. 2 was taken up and discussed. A review of its courts and corridors, and tbo vaults, was entered Into, and, after much measuring and es timating. tho Committoo determined onco moro to give tho plan a show, and it was admitted to make the seventh in the glorious galaxy of pos sible triumphs. No. 5, tho famed “ Eureka” plan of Mr. Tilley; was next inspected. The corridors wore care fully measured and examined, and their pros pects of light and ventilation again examined. It was claimed ,onco before that tho corridors would bo dark! An Alderman stated that ho has' boon viewing tho long corridors of tho Pacific Hotel, which wore more than 800 feet in -length, wore narrower than those in Mr. TiUoy’s'plon,—' whoso length was about half this figure,—and lighted only indirectly. Ho bad found them per fectly lighted. Prom this comparison bo had oomo to tho conclusion that tho objections offer ed against thoEureka ” plan that tho cor ridors wore dark ' J and gloomy would no. stand tbo tost of .on oxaminationt Another member, while ho admired tbo ingenuity of the plan, doubted whether It would bo practi cable. Ho admired tbo exterior so much'chat if any interior could bo ohoson to maloh it ho would bo satisfied that Chicago would have tho host court-house in tho United States. Two mem bers of tho Committee ridiculed tho plan as ro mantic, fanciful, and expensive, but a vote being taken, tho Committee determined onco more to admit tbo design. No. 7, the plan of Mr. Welsh, was taken up, but. after a short discussion, was laid upon tbo shelf. . No. 8, Mr. Sturgis* plan was among tho oloct, and Ala. Ogdon was' spared tho necessity of do* mandiog “ a complimentary voto for No. 8, be cause it does not look woll for ua to oloct only Chicago architect's;” - No; 0, Mr. Matz's plan, was among tho - oloct, and stood & sharp examination... There. was ono objection made to this plan, and that was . that one 1 of tho corridors camb to a lock, pre venting a continuous passage round tho build ing, This, however, tho Committee concluded, ' could bo readily remedied. ‘ No. 14, Armstrong- Sc Egan, was once more looked at critically, and was also readmitted. . No. 17. Mr. H.'L. Gay, after a moio thorough examination than it boa heretofore received; was again chosen. Tho main objection to this plan Is not tho internal arrangement so much as the entrances. Cut as oven tho plan adopted will ' require a vast amount of modification, it was only fair to give Mr. Gay another looso of lifo. No. 18, Carling Sc Adler, was already In tho charmed six, .and was allowed to remain there. The Committee then adjourned until this after noon,having added four to their minimum of six, making a total of ton. Those added are tho plana of - Messrs. Cochrane Sc Miller, Tilley, Armstrong Sc Egan, and H. L, Gay. Those that remained wore Messrs. Sturgis (complimentary), Matz, Burling Sc . Adler, Wheolock Sc Thomas, Caudal], aiid Dixon & Hamilton.

Be fore the arrest, Dr. Sweeney, of tho Orphans' Homo, telegraphed to the Mayor of Marseilles, Mr.Porsons, informing him of tho whereabouts of Wallar, but although Mr. P. is aifiegod to have known that Mrs. Wallar was not drowned, as was the current belief for a time, ho did mot for some reason think it worth while to inform *ho public of the fact.
