65 U.S. 426

Tracy  v.  Holcombe

THIS case was brought up by writ of error from the Supreme Court of the State of Minnesota.

The record showed that a suit was brought by Tracy as surviving partner against Holcombe, and on the 30th of December, 1857, the judgment of the court was entered that he should recover $2,340.71, with costs.

On the 13th of July, 1859, the Supreme Court ordered that 'the judgment of the court below be, in all things, reversed, and a new trial granted.'

On the 8th of October, 1859, a writ of error was issued pursuant to section third of the act of Congress entitled, 'An act for the admission of Minnesota into the Union,' passed May 11, 1858, and section eighteen of the act of Congress entitled, 'An act making appropriations for sundry civil expenses of the Government for the year ending 30th June, 1859,' passed June 12, 1858.

It was submitted on the record by Mr. Phillips for the plaintiff in error.

Mr. Chief Justice TANEY delivered the opinion of the court.
