THIS is the same case which was reported ante, vol. VII. p. 471. and was an appeal from proceedings had in the Court below, under the mandate of this Court in the original cause. Feb. 24th.
The cause was argued by Mr. D. Hoffman, for the appellant, and by the Attorney General and Mr. Taney, for the respondent. But as the present determination of the Court was confined to the single point of practice, without affecting the other questions involved in the cause, it has not been thought necessary to report the arguments of counsel. March 1st.
Mr. Justice STORY delivered the opinion of the Court.
