OiLA-But little business has been done in either Fish or Seed Oils, itud prices have but lillle varied. Frdit.-A large parcel of Figs was brought to auction latt Tuesday^ and partly sold nt luwer prices, but a large pruportiou was taken in. There have teen several arrivals kt Praia and oilier Raisina, and also three cargoes of Cur-ranis. Repn>f:D StICARs have been in liiniird demand, and ' large fumps have been sold for immediaie delivery at a re. ductecoise liable to ihe'^peciilatioDs of the Defehdanis. Tlie De-ieudantS'hail-said' they 'wopld not have borrowed .niouey frotn. other persous'if'the Plaintiff had- not refuseds (heiB advatices. He bad no tloubt they wuuldnot, 88 loDga.s be fuitnishedt|iem with checfi^ on hisbauker: but lie cpikt^^ded tjiey had no right to borrow' for a leas tiVbe Umii six aabutlis, which was providijcl for by the coveuaut .of the deed of withdrew his assistance^i^m the Dtteiidauts ;. tfiey had fol-got to state that th^^ fire took place in .Fniie 1819, and that he continuetl lo diKCouiit the bills of the copartnerahii, umir June 1890. The Plaintiff, accordtJig to fhe.^eed of partuersltiji, was not to take an active parlTii the copartiiurshtp ; and he did nor, for he hnd the n\iist unlimited eonli-deuce ia the Defendati,t� : ao much so, that he never culled for the interest of ihi; 2,000/, he had lent to the firm. He ^lan did hnsinesn aa u printer for the finn to the amninit of hetweeo three and 4,000/., not one shVUuiif of which had bten paid him. It happened, however, in the month of .Vl*y, .1820, the Defehdonis put into the Plainlfff's hands a-number of bills'to "discount, which he supposi^d to b'e bilU that came regularly into the t^pnceni, Hiid which hr^discottnted J Ofre-af'lhUmvrtf re-turned lo the PlainlitF dishonoiireil': it was accepted by a Mr. Ashdowii, a coiiveyaffcei'at Tu'nbnd^e, and when the Plaintiff wrote; to"l,h='t Gentleman, on the subject of the bill, he answered lliat he was nut liable to pay it, as he hull accepted it without vuliif, lo accommodate the Defentftiiis, the Plaintiff's copartners. This �*as the ^loutiil of the Plainiili's tirst alarm, as he thought if there was one accom. niodatjon bill there might be more; and there was nothing that would oUrin a man more Ihau to tiiid out that he wa^ embarked in trade with persons dealing in accommodalion bills. As lo the luo-fives of the Defeiidanis for their condudi he hud nol+iing to do wilh it; but the facts admilteil hy themselves was sufficient to justify the Pluinliff in the step he hud taken. They lud udinilti-d that tlie bill of Ashdowii was one which that Genileman had received no value fron\ ihem for. The Defendant Maunders had stated what was incredilile : that he had tukeii. the bill us a security, when it was his own Hrrift on a person who wpuld not pay it, because he had^ot receiverl value fur it. Then on this coming to the knowiedg-e of the Plaintiff, he refused to advance more money lo the Defendants, which, he contended, came strictly under the covenant of the deed of copartnership; lor if there was a breach of a covenant, let the sum be ever so small, still ii was n breach; like the stnry of a man who stole a pig,, and being accused of it, he said it was a very small pig:-he wa�, however, convicted of the theft. Tlie Plaintiff charged tbe Defendants with entering into ii negociation with a Mr. \Vestal, for an excliang.e of paper, and liy an entry in the Defendants' books, it appeared ihat an exchange uf paper did take place between them to the amount of 1,400/. And how did ihe ^Defendants explain the transaction ? _They stated, that -having bills of excliange for snnalL sums they put them into the liaiids of Westal, and took his ncce|:tance for the whole amount, 1,400/. This trinisactioii alone, he contended, would,be coiisi-' deretl by any Court of Law as a breach tjf a covenant of a contract to prevent one partner from ranking away with the properly of the copurtnership. It Was necessary for him to draw his Lordship's attention to the munner the partnership accounls were kept by the Defendants. After ail the industry that had been used by the Defendants on them since the bill was filed, ihey were now so obscure that no man could ascertain what was meant b}' ttiein. The value of account-books to the trader he hud always understood was, that they should be faithful records of what was passing in the trade, and such compliance was required by the dted uf copartnership; but instead of which there were new entries in the books, purporting of anterior date; at ihe .same time the date of ihe item pre-. ceding shewed they were made since the ia-jonciion was granted. The Learned Counsel then stated, that independent ofthe two thousand pounds lent to the copartnership by the Plaintiff, he was in advance to it in a sum of near 7,000/, besides the Defendanta^having imjdicated his name in biU,oiis frequenting the weekly inar-kett He would prove this from entiie.^ in the int-' ulsters' books in the 4'h year of Edward \l. and also in ihe reign of Elizabeth, in which ihe fUiiiarlance) the tolls hud hei^ii payable, there was, in his opinion, sufficient evidence': of a legal commencement, and they would find their verdict accordingly. The Jury immediately found a verdict for the' Plaintiffs-Damages, 40s., and the value cf the toll of corn withheld ^by the Defendant. Mr. Jervis obtained leave to tender a bill of exceptions. This trial occupied the whole of the day, and did not cooolude till nearly five o'clock. COURT OF KING'S BEN�J, Wkstmissteb, WeONeSDAY, DitoEMBBR 13.
