United States v. Hodge (54 U.S. 478)
THIS case was brought up, by writ of error, from the Circuit Court of the United States for the Eastern District of Louisiana.
It was the same case which was twice previously before the court, as reported in 3 How. 534, and 6 How. 279.
The facts and points of law are set forth in the opinion of the court.
It was argued by Mr. Crittenden, (Attorney-General,) for the plaintiffs in error, and Mr. Johnson and Mr. May, for the defendants in error.
The arguments of the counsel were so connected with an examination of, and reference to, the accounts, which were very voluminous, that it would be difficult to present an abstract of them.
Mr. Justice DANIEL delivered the opinion of the court.
