LEGAL INTELLIGENCE. The C?ac offcoor Ammgoli and the Mexlcui UovernmMit* SUPERIOR COURT? SPECIAL TERM. Before Hon. J*dge Holfman. THE BEPUBLIC Or MEXICO VS. V. AKttANOOlZ. Jan. 31. ? Mr. D. D. Lord, in hie argument <>? be'ulf of the Mexican government against the order to discharge the defendant troin arrest, submitted several point* for the consideration of the court, on which be argued at conalderable length. He cited the l?9th section of the code, In an action for a Hoe or penalty, or on a promise to marry, or for m'.u??y rewired, or for property embez zled or fraudulently misapplied by a public officer, or by an attorney or agent of a banking association, in the couise of hia employ an >uch, fcc., he. In aa action for money received by a ; >rson in a fiduciary capacity, lie i? liable to arrest unless he clearly make* out a difcliarge. Mr. 1/jiJ continued to contend. If the plaintiff haa the money it la hi* duty to pay it over, or he may deposit. If he ha* Mpent the money without right, it in a fraud. It i* not incumbent on the plaintiff to show anything but the receipt ami raudulent character. He is not hound to ?how friud no. misapplication. The defendant shows that the money wan received by him aa a fiduciary, and, a* plaintiff says, a* Consul Ge neral. Hi* attempted explanation of keeping hi* saltry i* contradicted by document* Hi* whole commission ad hoc ?oik" to avoid mercantile charges, risk* and r? -poimibilifies, and the correspondence with him aho>v? that he was a salaried officer, aa ho was addreised a? Con sul General hy the Secretary Hi* detention of the money 1* without previous or sub sequent agreement or allowance by hi* government, and against law. The defendant cannot measure out his own compensa tion, without giving security for the consequences of hi* be ng wrong The cases cited ie our courts are all cases for compensation for service* clearly extra, and where the compensation was allowed by the proper superior, or a usage of office. No such thing is pretended in tuls case. The defendant did not renounce the consulship until after be had determined to withhold the money. Counsel contended that the amount retained was ex cessive, and ho much so as to be fraudulent; the trans action was not a mercantile one ; it was official and fidu ciary, as Commercial Consul, his deposit in his own name neither increased his labor nor his risk. Mr. I.ord con tinued to contend that this was not a mercantile opera tion, but that it wa* an official one; that the trust wa* to the defendant on patriotism, honor and confidence, and as a Mexican officer, and he, therefore, cannot at tempt to retain in opposition. Mr, Lord concluded by reviewing the letter of Seuor Arrangoiz of December 14, 1HS4. THE DEFENDANT'S POINTS. Mr. Antbon, in summing up for the defendant, and contending for the discharge from arrest, submitted that the undertaking is bad, not bi ing executed by the plain tiff: that the republic of Mexico, quoad this action, is a "non resident plain till'." anl ia to be treated as an indi vidual, or as a "loreign corporation," and must execute obligations required by the statutes or rules of court as Mich. [I .egg en Outlawry, 43, &c.] The undertaking, to be valid according to the statute, ought to have been executed under plaintiff's seal, or by virtue of a nower under seal to be annexed. As now executed, it does not bind plaintiff, and being defective in this particular, the sureties ire not bound. A minister plenipotentiary does not represent hi* go vernment in its more private matters of contract. He is intrusted with matters of State and diplomacy only, and to enable him to bind his government In ordinary hi it t?r* of contract, he requires an expreas power of attor ney. On the motion to di-charge the order, th? court h is the power to look into the affidavits and determine the probability or improbability of the alleged fraud, <tud sustain or discharge accordingly. When fraud is fully denied to the satisfaction of the ?ourt, the order to arrest falls in the same manner, and for the same reason as the order for injunction. The right to arrest the defendant in this case is claimed on the ground that he was in a flduc ary capacity; that he received money belonging to plaintiff, and t.Uat he r<! "ains the same without just right and in fraud to plain tifl. It seems also to be claimed, at the end of the affida vit. on th* ground of his alleged intention to l"Ave the jurisdiction of the court. Tie defendant's affidavit, in l-vply, seta forth the character in which he received the money, namely, for the plaintiff's ute, and shows the application of it by plaintiffs order, he denies the de tention without right, ami denies all fraudulent intent. If the court is satisfied from defendant's affidavit that there is no fraudulent intent, and that the money is de tained on a claim of right, having a reasonable founda tion, be ought to he discharged. In this view the entire merits of the present applica- ; tion are resolved into the questiou of probable tight, which, if it exists, necessarily excludes all fraud. The plaintiff admits the services and defendant's title to a recompense in some form, but denies his right to a !<-? unlary compensation, on tue ground that he was (' .Usui General, and as such, by a law o.' Mexico, bound to p- fotin other services, however different from his consular services, without compensation. lhe defendant denies tke existence of such a law, and plaintiff makes no eounler proof or averment. Thede lendant also insists that he had c?ased to be Consul Cieneral; that he thin held but one office, namely, "Spe cial Commissioner," imposed upon him after he hsd made liim-e f a private individual, in obedience to the orders of his government. That he wiiuli have had a full right to compensation tx ci/un et bono, even had be retained his office of Consul ( ^neral, the set vices being entirely foreign and disaimi lar. Where there thus appears a fair question for a court snd jui7, the ca?e is not witliin the penal spirit of the C< de, and the defendant ia not to be embarrassed in pre senting it. The CAse in this stage must also, in addition to | those grounds, be disposed of according to our laws, and In the Courts of the United State* the rule is well settled "that aa officer who, at the request of hia government, performs extia services beyond the ncope of ,hls regular duties, or of a different character, ia eutitled to proper compensation " (1st Kent, 41, 4d, Andrew's vs. I'nited states ? second Story's Hep , Ac . *c.) As it is therefore clear that the demand in question would be legal and sustainable against the government of the United States, had the services been rendered by a person In its employ, under the same circumstances aa those attending the dsfendmt in this ca?e, the money retained has lost its fiduciary character, and is held t>y the defendant in his own light. Imprisonment for debt being abolished as a general rule of our law the facta alluded to, in order to bring a party within the exceptions, must, in favorem liberta'u, be most strictly construed, and under the exception gov erning this rase, a clear c?se of unden ed fraudulent detention of fiduciary funds must be established before bis imprisonment can be allowed. To allow it In this ca?e. under the facts described and sworn to by the defendant, would repeal the non- im prisonment act, and expose ever? consignee, agent, fac tor or broker, attorney or counsellor, who in tbe course of hia ordinary business should retain his commis-ion or :ees, according to tbe usual course of busiueas, to ine vitable Imprisonment, and would compel such persons to leave thtir compensation to the chance* of a recovery igainst an insolvent Mr. Anthon, therefore, contended liat the ordsr for arrest being tioal. adds weight to the oints he had adduced, and he submitted the defendant hould be discharged. The decision of the Court is reserved United Stair* Commissioner's Ofll<<. Before Om. W. Morton, Esq. THE A1.LE0ED CHARGE OF SLAVS TRAFFICKING. Jas. 31.? Tike IMilfd Statu ??. J. MUtti. aliat raft.?

Each piece *m rolled on ? block io the usual way, were packed in boxe* about twelve laches by six, and about tbree incite* blgb, tro-u twelve to fifteen roll* being packed in each box. The boxe* were made of white pasteboard ? some of them g lazed. Common wrap ping paper waa put around each box and about fifty boxea were placed in each case. The case* were made of French pine, and wrapped round with *traw, over wliich waa a lineu wrapper They were placed in a dry part of the steamer, on the oilop or berth de -k, a place appropriated for French good*, which win separated from the boiler, furnace and engine, by a thick partition of boiler iron, and every precaution which prudence could dictate wan taken by the res|>ondent* to exclude heat and the eacape of ateam from those decka. The ribbon* were of various colors, the mure dplicate colors being in Miree cane*. Tlie damage complained of wan manifested in the change In tlieir color, in streaka and in spot* the lean delicate colura not lieing injured. Tne milk white waa changed to a dull yellowish tinge, and where this change of color appeared, it extendod over the whole piece, from the outside to the block. There waa no appearance ot damage on the wrapper* of the case*, or on the case*, or on the wrapper* of the boxes, or on the boxes, ani no appearance that they had lieen wet or dump. Held by the Court, that, under th>' hill of la ling, the respondent! muat be renponsible for the damage, unless they show that it waa occasioned by oue of the excepted rnuaea in the bill of lading, or tliut it existed before the ribbons came into their posaeaaion. or that it w a* pro dtired by a cause which bad its origin before they re. celved them at Havre That upon the evidence the da mage waa uot occasioned by heat merely. Dtin ure oc caaioned by bent ahowa itaelf in a different way. To oc casion it, the heat muat be excessive, and there waa no auch excessive beat where Vittw ribbon* were *tow*-l. That it waa not occasioned by the eacape of steam after tbey were packed in the boxea. If it had been, aome trace of it would have been ahown by the paper aroun 1 theboxe*. No auch trace waa iouno. .Steam could not penetrate to these deck*, except in caie of an accident to the machinery, and no auch accident happened. That there can' be no doubt that the original causa of the da damage was dainpneas, the damage being made to muni feat itaelf a* it did by heat. That if this dainpneas lntd been occasioned by water reaching the ribbon* after they were placed in the boxes, aome evidence of if would have appeared on the boxea, wrapper* and cases. Hut none 1 such could be found. There i* no probability that wa ter could have reached tliein where they wera stowed. I under the circumstances. That the ribbons must, 1 therefore, have been damp when rolled, or must have become no after they were rolled, but before they were packed, and, there 'ore, before they came into the pos- ; session of the reapondenta. That though thia damage would have manifested itaelf differently if the ribbon* had beeu brought in a sailing vessel; and though the peculiar manner of manifestation of the damage waa cauaed by the warmth and dryness of the steamer, yet the dampness waa the MUM of ths dMMM to the rib bon* and for that the re*pondent* are not liable.

The semi annua' interest on tbe bonda of 1871, and the semiannual interest on the principal of the income bonds which hive not been converted, all come due tc-inorror. It ia e?tl mated that ab ut one million of dollara of the income bonds have be*n converted into the new iasue a a fourth mortgage bonds. The payment to morrow will be the largest the company ever bad, and the mi a as to make it have been purchaaed at a greater Iom tbaa any loan ever before negotiated. The three million two hundred thousand dollars raised by the new isaae of four million of bonda have becu tiled in paying the Income bonds and interest, the in terest on the bonds of IN71, and a small portion of tbe floating debt. There will be left outatanding on the lot of Itarch, *hen the sinking fund commences operations, a floating debt amounting to nearly oae million five hundred thonaaud dollara, a load wh<ch will weigh down the slock, and keep it at very low pointti for many years. The floating debt can not, nnder the moat favorable circumatancoa, be paid out of the net eurnings in less than four or live years. An annual payment of tire hundred thousand dollars would not extinguish it na<ler four years, and co one supp >see for a moment that the company, after providing for ita sinking fund, will have anything like half a million dollars a y*ar to apply to the payment of ita floating indebtedness. If It punctually pays the monthly instalment to the sinking fond, it will do better than we anticipate. We hear vaiious estimates made as to what the redaction ought reasonably to be on the par value of the shirts of some of our leading fancy railroads. Our State Commissioner haa told the public that no reliance can be plased on railroad reports, and the experience of the last year or two prove* it. But one thing may be set down ai certain, that aft-r having bfen Hchuylerized, shaved|or cheated, as are known to have been, for example, the E ie, the Hudson Blver and the Flarlem roada, the real par of the tint cannot, at the outside, be taken as higher ttan tifty ; that of the aecond than forty, and that of the third than thirty. If any of the?e roads ever , come to pay dividends of seven per cent, it will be not on the nominal par with which they started yeais ago, but on this reduced par, to which their loeses and expenses must ultimately redu?e them all; and one of them, it la nuderatood, Immediately. On the snppoiition, then, that these roada, which have not to day a aingle dollar laid by for dividends, will make them at the rate of seven per cent in the course of two or three yeara ? which we do njt at all believe ? their present actual viluj cannot be regarded, for tbe flrat road, us high as forty; fur the eecond as high as thirty, aad tor the third aa high aa twenty. No prudent capitaliat wishing to pat his money in a place for safe keeping, and also derive an annnal Income from it, will buy the stocks at any price; but lot even the street ?pe.ulatori, and the clerks who go in for fliers, can fairly estimate th? real value of their shares auy higher than this re duced par, less two or three yoara internet. If the Butland road, which, afUr a c?t of 13,200,000, has juct been told under the hammer at one mill per mile, bud been a Wall street fancy , with a clique in the direction, and In.the street to sustain it, it would no donbt have held np a respectable head alongside of our prcnden fancies.

Inquiries liare satisfied the writer that the dividend* heretofore declared upon the "old stock" have seldom, if in any instance been truly earned, they were the result of simulated statements ant exaggerated estimates. Tbe??> diviilentla. in th? aggiegste, aince February, i860, In clusive amount to 9?1H 407, anil thin aum is uow repre sented in the funded an 1 floating debt, it it notorious, that at no tiuie wuen a divi end him been declared wu* tie money in the treasury with which to pay ti. Each semi-annual period put the company ill tile market a borrow era; and if the frauds of the lat<> ,'^ecretary^iad uo been perpetrated, and everything left to more in th beaten track, the company coul 1 not have gone on fo ? long period before its incrcating euiliarra laments wuuld have forced minute am pains lasing inveaugat Ions, and the fact above indicated have been disclosed. The capital sto. k, funded aod floating debt, oon structim account, are a* follows: ? Capital Aiyilicablr to thr Construction of th' /load.

It Is the opinion of the President that the ulti mate capital of the company will be 110,000.001). Nnmercu* claims are unadjusted, and many account* remain open, which will.it U ?uppoMd, swell the preient capital to the mm named anove. In reginl to the lutnre earning* of the road, tne prospect ia r.ot very Mattering. It ia eitimated that on the I t ?lanuarr, 1H50, there will l>e a surplus, after paying the dividend on the prop<?ed stock, of 158,000. It in figured out that a dividend on the old stock, of tour per cent, can l>e paid out of the net earning* for the vear 185ti. It is suggested by the President that the par value of the old st ick '>* reduced from ISO to |3o per nh*r*. This would r?duce the capital oto.k from 14,500,000 to $2,700,000.
