U.S. Supreme Court

The Grapeshot, 74 U.S. 7 Wall. 563 563 (1868)

The Grapeshot

74 U.S. (7 Wall.) 563


1. Proof that papers, not contained in the record, were used in the court below, must be made by affidavit, not by certificate of the clerk.

2. A decree of the Provisional Court of Louisiana, which was established by order of the President during the rebellion, having been transferred into the circuit court in pursuance of an act of Congress must be regarded, in respect to appeal, as a decree of the circuit court.

Upon two separate motions to dismiss an appeal from the decree of the Circuit Court of the United States for the District of Louisiana, the decree being one transferred there under act of Congress from the late so-called "Provisional Court" of that state, both motions being made by Mr. Durant.

The ground of the first motion was because the transcript was incomplete,

"as appeared by the certificate of the clerk of the lower court, as given in the printed transcript, and because it further appeared by the said certificate that the missing parts of the record could not be found, so that it was useless to issue a certiorari,"

and on the whole impossible for this Court to hear and decide the case.

The ground of the second motion was that the Circuit Court of the United States in Louisiana had rendered no decree from which an appeal could be taken, so that this Court was without jurisdiction.

This Provisional Court of Louisiana, as mentioned in the preceding case, had been established by proclamation of the President in October, 1862, when the war of the rebellion had subverted and swept away the courts of the Union and, by the terms of its constitution, was to last no longer than till the civil authority was restored. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
