Cuppy, Henkle, and Arrick for plaintiff, and Col. w. Penn Clarke for defendant. The plaintiff claim* that the defendant a? Consul General of Egvpt on or about November 3d, M64, did claim to hare jurisdiction in a controversy between the plaintiff and R. H. and U. B. Allen, and unlaw fully did seise certain goods, which he detained for a long period of time, and that defendant maliciously issued a pretended process of gar nishment ordering certain creditors not to make payment to him. He farther states that at the commencement of the proceedings ami during their pendency he and the Aliens were resi dents of the United State*, and were not resi dent* of or sojourners in the Ottoman empire, and he avers that by reason of the seizure he suffered great loss, aiid he brings suit for 000 damages THE DKPENDAWT sets up as a defense that at the time said seveud trespasses and grievances are alleged to have born committed he was Consul General of the

Cnlted States at Alexandria, Egypt, duly fur nished with a letter of credence trom the Presi dent of the United States to His Highness jhe Pacha of B^ypt; that, as such Consul General, he held the highest diplomatic rank of any re|> resentatlve of the United States in the country to which be was accredited, and that by virtue of the laws of the United States he exercised Mj?3 functions and duties of a minister. That when he took cognizance of the cause of th" Aliens against the plaintiff, the said plaint ff had a stock of goods in store in Egvp That in his official capacity as consul genetal as aforesaid, by the law of nat'ons. as well as tin laws of the United States, he was invested w.'h iudicial functions and power over citizens of the Jnited States residing in said country of Egypt; ami by virtue of said authority and power," he did the things complained of by plaintiff, and that he is liable only to the United States. a<i?! not to this plaintiff. To this defence the plain tiff demurred, and the defendant tiled his join der. The issue of law was heard at the special term in April, and the court, upon consider ation, overruled the demurrer, from which ruling and judgment the plaintiff appealed to the general term. THE PLAIJiTIFF CLAIMS 1. That neither the laws of Turkev nor of this country authorized the defendant to do the thingscomplainedofinhisdeclaration. 2. That however this may be since the passage of the amendatory act of I860, the laws of the United States had conferred no civil jurisdiction what ever upon the defendant when be committed the grievances complained of. 3. That the treaties between the United States and Turkey contain no grant or stipulation authorizing American Consuls to exercise civil jurisdiction in Turkey. 4. That there if no law or usage of Turkey and no law ot the United States authorizing Ameri can consuls in Turkey to attach the property of persons w ho are not within their consulate. 5. That whatever power consuls in Turkey may |H>ssese to hear causes between American citi zens residing there, it is an executive and not a judicial power. 6. That the process of attach ment is an extraordinary remedy, resting ex clusively upon statutory enaetment, and when resorttd to by an executive officer without au thority of law, constitutes a trespass, for which he is liable in an action for damages. ?^??????
