Refpondents imported thirty hqfheads of
tobacco at Greenock, and depofitedthern under
the King's lock, Sth March, 78j3.

to Wilfon and Browfl, pen hill It fix and fcven

lated In the agreement. Wilfon and It, n, on
the 7th of March, applied for delivery oight of
th fe hogfheads to be Ihipped for Liverpool, to be
delivered to their order, and Buchanan paid up
the bonded duty.
On the ilth of March the fufferance was grant-
ed. On the morning, Buchanan being Informed
of the inlolvcncy (which his Contfel iLfted was

known to several perfons to early as the th of
8th if March) went ad demanded back the letters
of fale, which Brown readily returned, an pro-
mifed to return the famples. In the afternoon
Buchanan applied for the bills of lading of the
eight hogiheads, which were likewife delivered.
Appellant Hill was eleaed Truftee to the Bank-
rupt, and brought his ation again Buchanan for
payment of 47o01. the whole value, and soool.
damages. The Court of Seaoo In Scotland
determined in favour of the Refpondents. Thefe
are the interesting outlines of thecafe, as it appear-
ed at the birof the Houfe of Lords.
The Counfel for the Appellants infifted, that
the transfer was complete and effedual; that it
was regularly understood to by the delivery of the
samples, and that this fymbollcal mode is warrant-
ted by the law of Scotland andEogland. for which
they quoted a variety ofcafes. That the delivery
of th eii!:t hogffiads was a rriking proof of the
f I. That the Refpondents obtaining beek the
letters of agreement and bills of lading, was an
aLd of extortion, and conftquently fraudulent.
That at all events the eight hoglheads aedally
delivered, ought to be considered the property of
the creditors.
The Refpoudentt Counfel argued, that the
contract was not complete at the moment of the
bankrnp:cy, the bills (tlpulated for the price not
being delivered. They contended that the fyan-
bolical delivery by famples, was unknown la law
and practice. Be idce which, the whole tranfac-
tion is void on the prefumption of fraud, the bank.
rupis well knowing they had neither purpoleor
ability to pay the price.
Upon a hearing of two day, the Chancedlor
(after declaring that the cafe lay In a utibell) wan
clearly of opinion, that the ale and delivery was
effeclual and valid. But as no collufion had bee
proved between the bankrupts and the Refpoa-
dents, with refped to the re-delivery and the can
ceiling of the agreement, the bankrupts had re.
inquilhed their interest, and the creditors lhou
be bound by it, unlrls fraud could he proved in
the tranfaRion. This not having been done, the
order of the Court of Stllon was afirmed,
the tobacco, together with eofs, were decrc4
to the Refpondnrts, O. and J. Buchanan.
The calling home General Sloper and Dalihng,
upon pensions for life, Is as great a miniterial
farce as ever was performed on St. Stephen'
Theatre. Can it be fuppofed that Gentltmctp
