THE COURTS. The Republic Insurance Company— An lowa Decision^ Oonnter-Affidavita in the Alleged Jury Tampering Case, Conclusion of tho Notorious Hlgli- Tvlncs Suit* Bankruptcy Mattora—Tho Courts in Brief—Hew Suits, : The question of tho possession, of. Jurisdiction by tho United States Circuit Courts in tho matter ■bf'suits brought by an Assignee in Bankruptcy mppolntod ln another district, whorb such As signoo is a citizen of another Btato and the do yond&nt ls a cillzon of a State whoro tho action is brought, and tho amount la dispute exceeds iho sum of SSOO j and of tho jurisdiction of tho Btato and Federal courts, as affooted by tho Bankrupt oct, was settled in tho United; States Court, of Dos Moines, 1a.,, on Friday laeL' ; Tho cases of tho Republic Lifo Insurance Company woro called several days ago la that court, ond 1 in the qaso of Fayeon, Assignee, v. Dietz, tho. counsel for tho defense made a motion .to dis-; miss tho case for want of Jurisdlotlon. This' action was ono of over 100, similar in character, I brought to recover tho amounts of unpaid as acssmonta upon stock hold by them. in . tlio Republic Insurance Company. Judgo Dillon eald that, tinder tho olroumstences of the oaso, iho jurisdiction of tho Court plainly existed, j .unless It bo takou away by the provisions of tho .Bankruptcy. act. It is claimed that the jurisdic tion of oithor tho United States Circuit Courts' or the States Courts is taken away, as a neces sary or implied effect of the jurisdiction which ,is conferred by the Bankrupt act upon tho United States District Courts. It is claimed, as e necessary and legitimate conclusion, from tho 'establishment of bankrupt courts with plenary .jurisdiction throughout the States, and the pro scribing tho Circuit Courts .certain .specific powers in bankruptcy proceedings, ' that all jurisdiction in bankruptcy cases should bo exclusively in Iho bankruptcy courts, except so far as ins 1 Bankrupt act ex pressly confers such jurisdiction upon iho Oir ' cuit Court. The Court, upon the bestoonsldora . tion bo had been able to give the view that' tho ' District Court had exclusive jurisdiction in all ac . tions relating to tho collection of the assets of . estates, and in all other actions concerning the estate, except so far as a concurrent jurisdiction ' Is invested in tho Circuit Courts in a limited number of cases, had not boon ablo to roach tho - conclusion that it was a sound ono. The Court mentioned the following reasons for sustaining tho jurisdiction of tho Circuit Courts in actions ouch as the ono iu question, and dismissed de fendant’s motion: ' 1. This Court, whore tho Jurisdiction arising from citizenship exists, is a court of full common law and equity powers. In this action,’tho requisite cit izenship does exist, and tho cause of action Is not ouo crested by the Bankrupt act, hut is essentially a com: mon law action to enforce a contract against the de fendant. It is true that the Assignee claims title under proceedings in bankruptcy, much like an executor un der proceedings In tho Probate Court, but this docs not inako the action, properly viewed, a proceeding in bankruptcy. With the consent, and under the direc tion of the proper bankruptcy court, there was no rceson why an action like this should not be enforced either iu the State Court or In this Court, as may be deemed most expedient. Essentially U does not differ from actions of which both classes of courts constantly toko cognizance, as part of their original and rightful jurisdictloa, •• 2. Tho argument against the Jurisdiction of this Court derives all its force from the supposed exclusive jurisdiction of the District Courts, and that auch Juris diction is exclusive, both of tho State Courts and of this court, except to tlio limited extent mentioned in' Iho second section of the act. If Congress bad Intended by tho first section of the act to make the jurisdiction of tho District Courts ex clusive in the collection of assets and to deprive all other courts of Jurisdiction over any action by or •gainst Assignees In Bankruptcy,lt would have been as •aay as It would have been natural to employ language to oxyreaa iblv putpoee. But It will bo observed that the word erclusttc u descriptive of tb» l**w«iiictlon is pot only not used, hat scorns to u*r« been carctiiuj‘ •voided. 8. That the State Courts are not deprived ot juris diction In ordinary common law and equity suits, aim ply because brought by tho Assignee In Bankruptcy, is ' » proposition that has tho support of many well-rea soned adjudications made both under the Bankrupt act of 1841 and tho present act. And if those coflrts msy exercise a concurrent jur isdiction In any event, it would seem to be in cases where tbo Assignee with tho consontor concurrence of tbo Bankruptcy Court resorted to them for the ordi nary purpose of collecting the assets of the estate. 1 Assummgtbo decisions in favor of the concurrent' Jurisdiction of the State courts In certain classes of action by Assignees in Bankruptcy to bo correct, It . would be an 'anomalous result, and one which we can hardly suppose Congress intended, viz: That tho State* courts should exorcise their general concurrent Juris diction, if tho Assignee should desire to reeort to them, 4. The jurisdiction of this Court under the Judiciary act Is plain.’ Repeals by- implication oro' not favored. Jurisdiction plainly conferred upon one court cannot bo taken away by mere affirmative legislation confer ring like, jurisdiction upon another court. ALLEGED TAMPEBn«J WITH A JTJRYUAIf. A few days since wo published tho particulars of allegations contained in the affidavits of par ties interested in tho plaintiff side of the case of Martin v. Day, which charged a Bailiff of Judge Rogers’ court with tampering with a juryman. Messrs. Bout & Black, counsels fortho defend ant In that suit, will produce in rebuttal the affi davits of tho Bailiffs in tho coart, and also of ono of the jurymen, the allegations of which ora particularly interesting. Tho affi davit of John Humphrey, ono of tho Bailiffs of the court, sets forth that ho, togethor.with N. O. Hill, hod charge of tho jury in the; case of Martin „v. Bay, but ho .

Phillips & Carmichael, in which suit plaintiffs sought to recover the value of; 100 barrels of highwlncs. In June, 1870, plaintiffs, who ore dlstulers at Oquawka, 111., sold, on 'the Board of Trade, through their brother Wallace, to Wilson Ames & Co., of Chicago, 200 barrels of hlghwincs to bo delivered about the 20th of July following, throe days’notice to be given. The responsibility of both Wallace, tholr agont, and Ames, tho purchaser, being unknown to them, and Philips and Carmichael having already sold highwlncs for plaintiffs for over 12 years, and they having oouildenco In their re sponsibility. after their agent hod made said sale, employed Phillips & Carmichael to attend to the getting up of the contract of sale, and tho delivery of the wines under the contract, dis charging tholr agent, who effected the sale, from doing anything further in tho contract, and stat ing at tho time to Phillips & Carmichael that they preferred paying a double commission for tho additional security. Previous to tho 10th of July thereafter, tho niglmlnos of plaintiff woro destroyed iby uro, and thereupon plaintiffs re quired defendants, when culled upon for the de livery of tho wines, to purchase and deliver them to Amos, at that time the price of wines having fallen. Since tho contract of sale, plaintiff re quested Wallace to have Amos put up an additional margin, and having become satisilod that Amos would not do so, and apprehending difficulty at the time, informed Carmichael one of the defendants, of Amos' action, and of his apprehension of trouble arising therefrom { and told him not to let him have a dollar’s worth of Wines until ho had received the money, which Allegation defendant denies In bis evidence.' .Phillips A Carmichael, on tho lCthofJuly.ro tcolvou a.iioltoO from Amos to doUvor tho high -1 winoß'. and bn'tho IHthho did deliver 100 barrels, j but without Toooivlng nay ihorofpr.

New Onr.rANt), May' 24.—Tho ‘Congressional parly returned from the month of the river at Ba. m., and leave by apodal train for the North at 4 p. m. Tho partisans of both .Kellogg and McEoory are doing all they ‘ know to gain adherents among’ the Congressmen, and tboy have bo far succeeded that a few Representatives will remain over and partake of tho private hospitalities of Kellogg, Warmolh, Mo- Enory, and other pollUdans. None ot the Congress-: men have committed themselves to .an espousal of either aide, . hut they , listen eagerly to all statements in order totake action in tho next Congress, and nearly all the' Representatives are pledged, to support the Fortßt; I’hlllp Canal scheme. It la Judged.feasible, (hero be ing only ono loch requisite, and the remainder of (ho work consists of more excavating, except at tho'mouUi of the river, where somo Jetties are to ho put up. Tho : cost will ho SO,OOO, DUO to $7,003,000. An uttompt is mado to load this simple scheme;with all sorts or Ira-' provououts, estimated to cost nearly $30,000,000 lu tho ‘aggregate, hut the Congressmen aro unanimous that '■the scheme will not hoar loading with anything else. Tho present channels wero 17 feet deep, and can be kopthy tho present; appropriations at u convenient depth of SO foot,. hut tho Government dredging officers 'complain that tno Tow-Boat Company,'.which: is’ Bald - to ho owned by the Ouslora-lloufloriug, with. Grant’s brolhcr-lu-law, Casey, at their head, deliberately run ships ashore. .When they aro forced to' tow them In, they protend there In no water. Wien they can avoid towing Ihctn in they do so, preferring to lot them stick lu the mud - uuilllho tugs aro called to tow them off into port, at tho rato of SI,OOO per hour. The offi ' ccra say they can keep up a constant depth of, 20 foot, hut, with auch a game, as this going on, it is practi cally useless to do so. They therefore favor tho canal. Borne anger was displayed by the friends of tho Tow-Boat Company at those candid disclos ures, hut Lieut, •; Glynn, MaJ, Howell, . and Oapt. Davis did not flinch. A pilot testified that ho bed run a vessel ashore by orders, so ns. to se cure tho SI,OOO per hour for tho .Tow-Boat Company. Mr.' Syphon ono of Kellogg’s members or Con gress, and cx-Gov.dVarraoth, yealerday evening, had a sharp battle of words on l>oard tho boat, and an ex change of pistol shots was momentarily expected. Sypher charged Warmoth with having peepatratod the biggest steals in Louisiana over known, and Warmoth retorted that Sypher was; mad because ho did not bovoa band 1u.,. Doth parties are deluging’ the Congressmen, who listen a groat deal sad say nothing,.with political ad dresses, Tracts, and pamphlets. i No effect whatever was produced by Grant’s procla mation. It Is regarded as having been insisted on by Senator Carpenter, ■ and 1 Senator Car penter - is ' regarded as a man who has stated views boro that are In direct opposition to tho views bo' expressed to his constituents In 'Wisconfin. Tho pcoplo have lost faith in him, and speak of him as ono who is as ready to do Grant’s bid ding ae any of the Radicals. Ho certainly seems here to bo hand-ln-glovo with Kellogg, If alt that Is said bo true, and his published utterances are exactly what' one would not have expected of him. No language can describe tho bitter feeling boro. Nearly to a man tho. merchants, traders, and better classes insist that their choice, and the cuolco of tho «10, was MoEnery, and they angrily denounce tho ral Government for interfering. They say that if Graut would withdrawals troops, they would settle tholr own affairs themselves inside of tou hours, f To the Associated I‘rest,] New Orleans, May 21.—The Evening''Timet- has tho following: At 8 o’clock In tho morning, tho timo appointed for tho departure of tho Bollc Lou ou her trip to tho passes with tho Congressional delegation and their friends, passengers by twos and throes walked up tho stages of this boat. They gathered in largo numbers on the forward dock to await tho coming of others who were to make up tho full complement of tho oxcurclon party. By 0 n. m. all tho Otm- Sesemen. all tbo wicker baskets, with uum rs labelled on them, and all tho Ico and their fixings, wero safely aboard; tbo mate shouted out in hoarse tones: “ Cast looso your head lines 1” and, with two or (hreo snorts from her cscaptvpipcs, tho floating palace hacked out from tho wharf, her cannon pealed forth a farewell salute, tho baud hurst forth with a triumphant air, tho thousands on tbo whnrf waved and cheered, and th? boat, turning her bead up the utream, after passing the long line of shipping which lines our wharves xtp to Jackson n licet, enrvodround into tho strong current of the middle, and nought tho mouth of tbo groat river which boars tho wealth and tho bounty of tho earth from tho mountains, (o tho soa. A peal of artillery saluted tho oxcurhlonlsta sa they wont by tho United States barracks, aud was stlij being flred when Uio swift ■ steamer reached the earth works of tho old battle-ground and tho monument of tho gallant Pnckoolumi, all of which were kindly pointed out and eagerly sought by tho strangers. The great caae.nclOii, tllu banana oud orangu graven, all had their charms for tho visitors, for tUosighte of the growth of a semi-tropic clime were very interesting to men who hsdeomo from tho great states ot the West, whore, although a generous soil brings the harvest, tbo days of verdure are more limited in number. They seemed especially Interested in what was formerly tho resi dence of Judah I>. Benjamin, on tho Belie Ohnsno plantation, now owned by Mr, Stackhouse, and they spoke of tho glory tho expatriated statesmen is gaining by his talent in another laud. This place is one of (ho finest in tho State, and the beautiful dwelling nnd grounds are calculated (o excite the admiration of all who behold them. Jesuit'# Beud, ouotof llio great ricc-produclug din* trlcts of Louisiana, next occupied their attention, and occasioned much comment from our vlsUoru, ■who looked at the green fields and made comparisons bo tween the enormous financial returns of this product and tho wheat of .the Northwest. Passing these, the boat Booh 'reached Myrtle Grove, which the band sainted with the old sweet air, v “.Ilomo Sweet Home,” ao a tribute to those who are living there. The mag* nlflcont rotate of Mr. Bradlsh Johnson attracted a groat deal of attention, and the neat, trim fields of these ' plantations showed ■ many on what a grand scalo .. sugar was formerly cultivated in this State, for in old times all tho places were like fhcee. -The far-famed plantation of Mr.' Lawrence, at Magnolia, had been anxiously inquired after by the Congressmen; who had heard in other States of this place, and wore very desirous of seeing It. They wero not disappointed, for coon Us immense green fields of cane burst on the view, and many were tho exclamations of ,delight with which Its first appear ance was greeted. In the big fields wore four locomotive engines, dragging ponderous steam-plows through the soil, besides many other great objects, such as tho sugar-house,-which is a- massive building, and the orange-grove, which the Sicilian fruit-sellers say is tho largest fn tho world. Tho men from tho great Western farm country wero specially- lutorcalcd in tho steam plows and their moaning exclamation when they saw them was, "Thatmeans business." At Magnolia tho boat rounded to, and took on board the Hon. Effingham Lawrence, who was most enthusi astically received and warmly greeted by all on board. Passed Uio rice fields and rlco mills of Polulo Ala Hacbo, the boat proceeded .ou her way tIU Ports Jackson and Bt. Philip wore In sight. Tho frowning guns in those grim fortifications recalled the ’ smoke and flame they hurled forth in our civil War, but tho old rebels and tho Northern Congressmen laughed and told stories of the war, which showed that those on hoard were at least reunited. ■ ...... II MAW m. IVWi IUUUIIIU. The great object oflnterest on the trip was thd silo of the Fort St. Philip Canal, which has already been surveyed. When the small building that makes the proposed beginning of the work hove la sight tho duck was thronged by those who were anx ious to boo oven tho markings of this great scheme. • The Congressmen of the West looked at the narrow strip of low alluvial which bars the great river from tho deep waters of the gulf, and seemed to see at' once the groat importance of the project. They spoke of the feasibility and cheapness of - cutting through this narrow nook, and foretold the great results accruing' from It to the great valley. They wore Infused’with ardor at the prospect of having on unobstructed outlet for the pent-up . granaries of tho West. They seemed to enter into the project with heart, hood, and soul and one especially was so much carried away os to ssy, " We will moke New Orleans and St. Louis yet the great rivals of New York, and ten yean will see the fullfilmont of this prophesy." After arriving at the proposed route of this canal, and stopping there long enough for all parties to make their observations, tho boat started again ou her trip to Pass Al Ontre. Before reaching their destination the gong sounded for dinner, tho viands and wine of which were In keeping with other hos pitalities extended on the occasion of this distinguished visit. Tho excursionists dis cussed tho topics of tho day with the merits of pom pous roast-beef and turkey, while their appetites wore superinduced by the fresh, balmy gulf breezes which had.boen blowing all day. The substantial salads and liquids of life occupied them for some time, and tho feast was truly one of reason, while the after-feast had an abundant flow of soul and kindly sentiment. Tho champagne sparkling In many goblets with tho sparkle of wit and repartee for, a long time kept the company full of life, humor, and happiness. Even* poor Joke was at ono lime respected, and even rehlis ed, because all parties hod an excessively klndlyfooling toward each other. But tho bounteous feast was ot last brought to a close. Those who wane able to over come the somniferous Influence of a good dinner loft tho Bello at tho Pass Al’Ontre Station, where she had stopped, and, embarking ou the " Beautiful Creole," sought the open gulf beyond tho bar. With an inspir ing air. the band bade farewell foe a while to those who chose to remain, aud the more lively excursionists sought deep waters outside the bar. Tho sound of the surf and tho life-giving soo-hreozo seemed to impart now vigor to these dwellers on the laud, while with a foaming bow tho swift steamer cleft the green waves. Everybody was Interested In tho dim lines of smoko whk*h were rising far at sea below the horizon, and whore now and thou a dark stcamcror tow passed, Tho hand gave a lively greeting as they glided by, lu her course tho Creole passed near the dredge boat E. B, Bayous, which was hard at work dredging out the channel. Those who had often heard of this vessel and her operations for tho benefit of commerce wore particularly inter ested In watching her removing tho mud. The Orcolo, after running a short distance out to nua/roturnod to the bar, which tho steamer Alabama was Groaning at the time. Soundings were taken lu going aurossfor the benefit of the excurslouUU, who soomod surprised at the depth of tho water. Then np tho Puss by the Ught-houio, Rtamllug like a grim sentinel on tho laud, she wondcu her way back to the boat, which was quietly swaitiug her return. The Creole transferred the passengers who had gone out to tho bar baak to (ho Bello Leo at 7 n.m.. and the Utter steamer, backing out of tho Pass A I’Ohtre wharf, slatted oh tho homeward 'bound trip; Shortly after Bupnor, a convention was called In the ladies cabin, wfifeb consisted of all tho members of lbs Congressional delegation and many distinguished citizens of New Orleans. Tho meeting was called to order with Mayor wilts in tho chair, anu Wta addressed by J. U. Oglesby, Esq., and Judgo Ken nerd, who demonstrated nil tho advantages of tho Mis sissippi •' export > route. ‘ over > all. . by . .rail and . canal ■ commercial Hues -in tho coun try. They • brought up figures and ; facts to eubstautiaU) their assertions, ona then how cheaply this Bt. Philip Canal could bo excavated, and how a vessel of any draught or tonnage would * thou ho ablo to come to our port, while now the bar obstructions kept heavy vessels from coining in, and ■thus- occa sioned n’ great scarcity of export tonnage of New Or leans. After our cltixens bad expressed: their views on tho subject of the necessity of thts canal, iho immense ad vantages it would bring to tho West, tho Congressmen of many Slates wore called, on, and each gave his opinion on tho scheme lu a short speech. More than twenty Congressmen of tho West and South, mon of influence and standing, took (ho floor, and all enter tained tho same opinion as - to tho necessity of this canal. : They condemned the legislation of the Govern ment for so long neglecting tho Mississippi River, and said that os tho lost Congress Just appropriated $1,000,000 to paving to tho streets of Washington with asphallum and wood, that it should at least pay $0,000,000 to > the■. completion of a scheme i which was of paramount importance 'l6 tho whole Western and Southern . country. l They said that ■ Eastern railroad mouopolista hml crushed tho’products of tho West too 1 long, and that 1 ,tbo fact of not finding a route for exporting their pro- • duco was getting to bo a. question of starvation with the Immense population of those States; ‘that a qunu . Uty of grain had boon burnt during ths past. year be cause it would not pay (ho cost of transportation ; that ;tbls was tho route that tho God of Nature had marked out as tho outlet to tho groat granaries of tho West, and down this route the groin was bound to< - come, -They, hinted that if tho mon Of tho East could 1 find no better way of spending iholr power than dec orating tho Capital and big seaboard towD9,thoy would combine with (he South and move tho Government 1 Capital and all to Bt. Louis, where It would. bo hotter carred/or. They said that Now Orleans was destined 1 to’ bocomo the groat city of tho continent, and that .no i.city i in; the world possessed so many natural advantages. They intended, to a man, to ’ bring this matter of giving tho Mississippi a deep out let before Congress at its next session, and force action upon it. They bad 1 all decided ’to give It their firm support, and somo said that, if $30,000,000 woro neces sary to this, they would demand it from the National ’ Government, as a right of tho West. 'Tho Kanawha and tho : Savannah canal routen wero thou' discussed,- hut this of tho-Mississippi they . considered of . paramount • Importance to all others. They said that Mexico and the Antilles woro templing objects that wero waiting for us to step In and Uko them, and relieve them from their miser able Government; and that, with tho accession of those, Now Orleans. would be their groat port of ox i change. Major Howell, United States Engineer, was called upon to give his views, aud express his opinion as to tho feasibility of tho project; also to stato , tho result of his survey. This gentleman clearly Illustrated the feasibility of tuo scheme. Ho told them that the proposed -connection of the canal with the Mississippi was six miles below Fort St. Philip, and it would have to 1m dug nearly out to tho Breton Island channel, whoro thcro was thirty feet of water at low tide. Ho also explained, tho manner in which tho banks wore to be kept from being washed la.'Uo stated - that a groat objection had been mado to tho project on tho supposition that tho ground below was not Arm enough to boar tho foundation of the locks, . hut recent boring bos discovered a splendid base whereupon tho foundation could be Before the Convention adjourned Mayor Willz read the dningatlon an Invitation extended them by the Mayor of viotnburg, to visit that city, which was de clined. Gen; Hayes then made an eloquent speech to tlio Convention, after which, at l a. in., the members Lo ing much wearied, it adjourned. The Committee of Arrangements have done every thing in their power to render tho trip agreeable to tho excursionists, and, if tho faces of all are Indices to their feelings, every one has enjoyed hlmneir to tho fullest extent. Great hopes are expressed by all parties in the re sults of this ocular demonstration to members of Con. gress of tho state of our channel, and they say, coat what it may, they are going to help us along overy way.

WASHINGTON, Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tfihnnt, crvin seuvioe hefoum. Washington, D. C., May 24.—A special Cabinet meeting was hold to-day, at which the Civil Sendee Advisory Board was present to consider the question of Civil Snrvira Rnform iu rotation to the govern mental departments hero. A majority of tho members of the Board are In favor of a system of rules and regulations which will ignore alt other considerations save fitness for tho various departmental positions. Buch a system pays no respect to locality, to relationship, or to political influences. It sim ply insists upon a set of rules, moral, in (effectual, and physical, .which, when compiled with on the part of tho applicant, settles his appointment beyond tho reach of further considera tion. Tho only restriction in this direction is to so distribute tho appointments that (his city and imme diate vicinity will not appropriate a disproportionate share of the clerkships. Tho same restrictions will not apply to the States generally. The; discussion on this subject to-day lasted nearly an hour, and was en tirely informal. Tho President simply asked those members of tho Cabinet and of tbo Advisory* Board present, to submit their views In a conversational manner. There was no especial opposition to the plan proposed, and from this it is in ferred that if tbo Advisory ’ Board make a report Is favor of, their new views, that it will meet with no opposition on tho part of the Govern ment. 'lt is proposed' to do away with the require ment wnioh now neccsaltato..that candidates from the various sections of tho country should all come hero to pass examinations for clerkships. The suggestion is that committees bo appointed, who shall bo located at convenient points, and who shall pass upon the qualifications of aspirants for departmental positions.
