Surratt lu Horae* (Home (Pee. 20) iorrespondcnco uf the Now York Herald.) A word about Surratt, and I have done. The interest manifested here lu the man's capture, esi ape and subsequent recapture, can only second that felt ia die United Mutes, Every little Incident of the conspir ator's former life Is eagerly talked over, and forms* Hie subject ol many a quiet cotrrir. The Zouaves, In whose regiment he sirred ten months, and particularly the Third Com pany, of which he was a member, Hud them selves made much of on account ot the in formation they can give respecting hts life with than, his habits, doings and character. From tills source I glean that he was an un obtrusive sort of fellow, u little insubordi nate nt times, and perhaps too reserved with bis comrades to ou a general favorite. He passed his days on guard in writing on the wall phrases decipherable by none hut himself. When In barracks he would write on paper by the hour, and then tear up tho manuscript. He read little, talked less, Iml evinced much partiality for wrest* ling, at which practice he was an adept. Sometimes he was seised with fils of nervous frenzy, when he would attack the person next him, nm\ desist as suddenly and with ns little cause as he began the assault. Ho proved himself very active and zealous on several occasions when In pursuit of brig ands, and gained the credit ol being a de termined, energetic, lawless dare-devil, a character which bis previous career certain ly shows he richly deserved. it Is no easy matter to enlist Into tho Zouaves nt the present lime, and wheu he en tered them it was still more dldlcult a mut ter ; his admission into the regiment was duo to the interest taken in him by on American lady resident of Komc—a rebel of course— who, knowing his previous history, wished to befriend him. Too wise to manage the mutter opculr, she requested the assistance of another lady,an English person, who, un aware for whom she asked toe ftvor. obtain - cdhis acceptance into the * 4 Pope's own." From a guide here. I a1«o learn that Watson or Snrrait was made much of by a party of Americans during the summer mouths. These used to send for him, entertain him and always sent him. back pretty liberally supplied with lands. I regret I cannot ob tain the name of this worthy family. itt .c r £ r T 1,, V?

The court town presented tbc some overcrowded aspect as on the previous days, and the benches seemed to be occupied by the eelf-samo Individuals who had patiently sat through the proceedings from the common cement.

Fo ley’s wire and his brother were with him during a portion of the afternoon, and his father*—a respectable-looking old man—was seen among the spectators, but none of them all, not even the v retched culprit hlm-elf, manifested half the anxiety, apparently, which tills poor mother betrayed. The Jury was called at 10 o'clock, and John Van Arman, teq., took up the argument on the part of the prisoner. It consisted principally or a review of lac testimony adduced on the pari or the peo ple. which was ably dissected. In ibr afternoon, llr. Heed dosed the case on the part of the people.

The committee devoted considerable time to the matter, collected facts mid statistics, drew up a report, nrd prepared a bill which was submitted to the Common Council on Monday night* for lluir " amendment, adoption, or re jection.’* The report and bill wore placed to (ho hands of the idly Clerk to bo presented to tho Council, but Ibo Conned, wlthont having read tbs report or lull, disposed of tho whole subject In n summary msimor. They impeached the hill in fifteen distinct articles, and threatened with dorlrucUun m>y l vglMnlurc which should dare to contldir any of Usprovltdons. It infty seem strange to some that the Common Council, which had bad one ot i<s own members removed from their midst by cholera, and Mho bad but a few week* before followed to the grave tin Police Clerk and numbers of our most promi nent citizens, who were ent otTbytbe same fell >de*ttoyor, should have treated this subject so fummartlv. Bnt rhuy condemned the whole mat ter without a heating, Id d series of fifteen objec tions. These objictlons, when investigated, will bo found (tulle as remarkable as any other objec tions over urged against any ptilllc measure. 1 hey arc hosed either on misrepresentations or misunderstanding. nicy state, Ist, "That they arc opposed to the bill bccanso a leas expensive und ample power Is now provided lor in the amendment lately asked to be passed,"as amendments to the City ('barter. This will be Appreciated when It Is considered that the Common Council do not mention the tact tbat by the proposed bill It la ospeciallv pro vided tbatlhe city shalljray only throe fonuhs of the expenses, and the county one fourth. The Connell seems to think if (ho city pays all the expenses of any character and kind, U will be cheaper. 'i. The Connell object to the “appointment ot five Commissioners by tho Governor.” The Com mittee. In their report to tho Common Connell, say. expressly, that os to that ma'ter. they have uo choice at all, and ark the Council to fix tho ap pointing power to suit themselves. Were they powerless to act, or did they refnso to act ? 8. 'J bey say that “the bill is not demanded by any considerable portion of the people." This la pure assertion and assumption, and is not to be nut by argument, as wo believe the contrary to bo tho Ilict. -i. Tho Council *ay “ that It provides for (be I creation of expensive offices."

If this is an objectionable feature of the bill, why did the Common Council, iu propoalngthetr amendments, confer equal powers on the Board of Health proposed to dc orcauiced by them ! I . 0. The Conned say that “the bill gives to the Poaid extraordinary and dangerous powers." As the Cental did sot enumerate or make men tion ofanyofthcßcextraordinary and dingcroos I powers.

The Council further say that the bill “enacts an extreme ptunity for client violations of rules of the Board." This objection will be appreci ated when It Is known that tbo penalties fur the slUbt vitiations have been »aken dlrccTy from the el’y ordinance (ice city ordnance, p.

Sec tion sof their amci.dmeuts is as follows: “In the piesence of a great and imminent peril to the ' publ e health in said city by reason of impending pcsUleneefor epidemic oiscasc,tt shall be the duty of raid Beard, or toe Board of Police, to take such mcasuies, and to do and order, and cause to be doae, such acta and make fqcli expenditures (oeyond (hose duly estimated fot or provided) f>r toe pr. serration of (he public health, though not herein, or elscwbeie, or otherwise authorised, as It may in good taltb declare (be public safety and health demand, and the Mayor of the city shall abo. in writing, approve.** Now (his section is verbatim literatim \be same as proposed by the cltiwae* bill, (see sec* linn Ss\ wliS the exception of the won's, “orepl rnm'c d ecosc,*’ ard alter the word Board, ** or tbo-BoardorPollce.**andthe Council giving Ihe po *or cot oily to the Health Board, but also to the Board of Police.

The very object of creating a Health Board Is to take charge of ►nnltary matters, snd to guard the public against disease and death, and 11 foe Board is properly constituted by the appointment of able and Judicious Commissioners, will scarcely be necessary or jioftiofc ou tbe occurrences of emar ccccy requiring piompt acton. to consult with or await (he approval of any other body.

PIIOUTACJE BETWEEN CARRIERS, Important Decision by Ibo Supreme Conn on ihrOarstlOb—Tbc Law ot Commercial lUMDIIIA. (Front the Detroit Tribune, JtntuiyW.l In the rawer H. Norton Mronc against the Grand Trunk Hallway Company, dedsn Cooky delivered the opmlon < f the huprtme Court at Lansing. on Monday, seining for this aute a very Important que'Uoa of commercial lav, in retard to which there baa been much controversy and litigation. Tto race was ar* gned at Detroit In October, and from IU Importance and supposed dlfflcultv.w at hod over for advisement until the January term. The question was asio tho proof cf the railnitr cf a tncrcauiUe custom, by wtiuh an lilomedlate consignee la authorized to deduct frem the oack freight earned upon the same, the value 1 ol any deficiency in the cargo, os shown by a compart* ton of the bill cl lading, with the endorsement of the carrier rtctlvingtt.

The evidence of the master of the vessel, tf trait* worth!, wouhl show very clearly thit the apparent deficiencywas In consequence or erroneous measure* icctit at CMcago; and as the supposed custom tnik*« no exception ot the case where the master is not In tacit, the coart dbenrent toe Question of lb validity. 011 the assumption that the facta were as claimed by the plaintiff. At the outset tee question as to what would be the rights of tfac partita In the absence ot any such custom warcrtndtmi.csweJiasthe changes uproposed to mate is the law. The Court holds: All customs must b« rei»vhabu. If ml.* custom ucrc oontinoi to vest* iLclniheluteriLedlateccusiccee the same power to icicselorayfrelgbtwhlcb the owner hlmseli possess es. u would net exceed the reasonable province ot a men asuie custom.

As between the earner and ih* owl cr to deduction can bo made fur any loss ex* ccpt ttoae occurring to the property while in the car* rltr's charge; but this custom allows no inquire evaa to Qiscf vtr whether any lo«* at all has occurred, out condemns the carrier upon the reading of ht« receipt, wltbcnt a lowing him an opportunity to tnxke his de fence, and proceeds at occe to assess and enforce the damages against him.

If fairly administered locates where the car* rterwas to taulc,tt could r«H operate unJasUv. nut applied universally. It violates legal maxims which custom Is not allowed to control. The law can nn regard a custom reasonable which confers upon the asect In behalf ot the p r lnc!pal a privilege greater than the principal hlm'eli poi-essea. or wnlcn aa*es«es damage* against a carrier who t« cot In fault, ot which requires him to suomlt lo an exaction and then follow the rnrocr to some cist nt place or distant country, and resort to amt to recover it bach again.
