Tennessee. Account as is alleged for

$3,620

Attendance on the district court sitting in bankruptcy by order of the district

jndge from the 1st day of February, 1842, to the 1st Monday of March, 1845; said court having been constantly kept open from day to day, for the trans uction of business; and business having been transacted daily during the tinie, being 724 days, exclusive of Sabbaths; and the number of days heretofore charged and paid for on account of the business of the circuit and district courts, 724 days, at $5 per day.

An account against the United States, of which the above is an abstract, was sworn to by said clerk, February 27, 1850, and the clerk swore that it had not been paid. Whole number of days from February 1, 1812, to 1st Monday of March,

The clerk certified to the account, and that it was legal and proper, and that the clerk actually attended the court by himself or his deputy, and by order of the judge, for the transaction of business, each and every day charged ; and the clerk made affidavit, February 27, 1850, that the account of $3,620 was just and true, and that the same had never been paid. The affidavit is at the bottom of the account, which states that the court was constantly kept open, and business transacted daily during the time mentioned, (724 days,) exclusive of Sabbaths, and the number of days previously charged and paid for.

The district judge (M. W. Brown) held courts during the same time in two other districts, to wit: East and West Tennessee, so that it was impossible that the bankrupt court should have been actually open and in session during the whole period. The time previously charged and paid-188 and 146, total 334 days—was the time during which the court was actually open, and the judge present.

The clerk and marshal had each rendered six semi-annual emolument accounts during the same period, in which each of them claimed a per diem only for the days when the court was actually in session, and for which they then made their charges and were paid accordingly. These emolument accounts were sworn to as the amount of all their emoluments; and, in some of the affidavits, the clerk added « nor am I entitled to any emoluments for the period therein mentioned, other than those therein specified.Certified by the judge on the account as follows: Examined and allowed.

M. W. BROWN, District Judge. I do hereby certify that, in obedience to an order of the district sitting in bank. ruptcy, the clerk of the court was in daily attendance in said court. Given under my hand this 4th day of April, 1850.

M. W. BROWN, District Juige.
