the blockade with," giving 100 per cent. for it. It was sought to be established by Mr. Crane, counsel for defendants, first, that Grobe obtained the money in Petersburg, thinking it good and sold it for speculative purposes; second, that Lindner, an operative at the Crenshaw Woollen Mill, acted only as his agent in disposing of it to Owens, having no very extensive acquaintanceship with either the English language or the solvency of Yankee banking concerns. Several brokers, among them Mr. R. H. Maury, testified that in their opinion the money was bad; though the money, which was all in $5 notes, having been issued in a foreign country, they could not pronounce a positive decision on its merits as currency. The case was continued until Monday next and the parties admitted to bail for their appearance on that day. Robert H. Jackson, a free negro, was examined for entering the house of Reuben Morton, another negro, in the night time, and stealing a number of postage stamps Jackso
Breaking a window. --Two men got into a fight Tuesday night, near the American Hotel, when one of the parties threw a brick which struck the large plate window of the banking house of Messrs. R. H. Maury & Co., knocking a hole through it as large as a man's head. The size of the window is about three feet by four, and considered very valuable.
Monday morning. The number of their killed and wounded which had been removed is unknown, but it is supposed to be considerable. Headq'rs in the field,ten miles Northeast of Lafayette, Ga.,Sept. 16, 1863. On evacuating Chattanooga the enemy retired to Lafayette and massed a force at that place, taking possession of the gaps of Pigeon Mountain directly in front of General Thomas's column. The rebel force had been made formidable by new additions from Johnston, Hindman, Buckner, and Maury. Deserters report the enemy now superior in numbers to the army they had at the battle of Murfreesboro'. Among the divisions are Cheatham's, Deyes's, Claiborne's, Buckner's Stuart's, Hindman's, Slaughter's, and detached brigades of Jackson and Anderson — in all thirty-five brigades of infantry, not less than sixty-five thousand men. Thus formidable in numbers and position, Rosecrans was compelled to concentrate his forces, necessarily much scattered in crossing the Lookout Mountains.

t — important Cass. --The uninteresting monotony in the proceedings of this tribunal was broken yesterday by the appearance of a case of general interest and of an important character. The style of the case was Christian (colored) ve. R. H. Maury & Co. and R. W. Hughes. It seems, from the records of the Court, that a box, containing bonds and other securities to the amount of some $10,000, was deposited with Maury & Co. for Christian, (as claimed by the plaintiff,) and that R. W. HughMaury & Co. for Christian, (as claimed by the plaintiff,) and that R. W. Hughes, acting as administrator, removed the bonds without competent authority. The argument yesterday arose on a motion made by the defendant to postpone the trial till depositions could be taken in Wisconsin. Judge Crump opened the case by making the motion, and holding that the deposition was necessary. Mr. J. Harmer Gilmer, Jr., followed for the petitioner. He argued that the motion arose simply from a spirit of delay; that the deposition was not necessary, and that if it was, the wi
