Gorernor Tucmax thought it was necessary for some elergt man of that lait b to be on the .slant, an'l he did not know but that this Father Frady was as good as tar other priest. Governor Taylor was of opinion that the expenditure ?f $1,100 a year for minister* on Bla k well's isiaod was useless, insomuch ? there could be plen'y of clergymen procured who would be wdliog to perlorui the duties for ?othitg Gorernor Prapk* knew of some churches who did send ministers to the i?laud to tea h their own peculiar d .g ?M.

Governor I iRArmi wai opposed to this resolution. It was jnst and proper to furnish these poor people with the consolation* of rel.gion on the r deathbed. Nine tenths of the persons nml?r :usrge of the Board on the Island and in the institutions were Koman Catholics, and tb* y require some one of their own persuasion to Bolster )o them .

On tM 10th d?x of January, initant, a judgment by default ?u entereJ in tbia action, on motion of Peter W. 'feller, who appeared for the defendant. Mr. Vultee, counsel for the plaintiff, now move* to open that default, and that the plaintiff be permitted to proaecute the action. The only question which arlaee upon the motion is, whether the default ehould be opened, with coat*, to the defendant. Teller bad never been lieensal to practioe aa an attorney in any of the courte of thia State. Counsel for plaintiff sontende therefore, that the defendant ia not entitled to ooate. By the pronaion* of the R. ?#., part 1, coapter 6, title 1, eectiun 1, counsellors and attorney e may b~ licensed to practice in the teveral eourte of law in thia State By title 4, aection 68, of the came chapter, every male citi zen. of the age of twenty-one years, of good moral character, be., may be licensed by the Justice* of the Supreme Court to practise aa attorneys and counsellors in all courts in thie State. By parts, chapter 3, title 1, Heel ion 19, every pereon of full age and sound mini may proaecute or defend an action in perron. By the next section any pereon of good moral character, although not admitted as an attorney, may manage, proaecute or defend a suit for any other person, pioei. ed lit is spe cially authorised tor that purpoee by the party for whom he appears, in writing or by peritonei nomiuation in open ceurt. By the following section, whoever shall in ptrson proteeute or defend aoy suit, Kb ail recover the >ame fees lot any service* performed therein, which he would be entitled to recover If auch services had been performed by an attorney or counsellor. In ail cases where a licensed attorney appears in a -nit or proceed ing the law raisee an implied authority on hie part to do so. In this case there is no proof before me that fel ler had any authority whatever to appear for the de fendant in the action. But even if be bad, neither h? nor the defendant ia entitled to any coats upon this motion. To entitle a party to coats in thia court in any suit or proceed ng, he must either be an attorney of the ?uprt me Court, or he must prosecute or defend m person. And no person can appear in any action, for either party, unless' the court poeaess satisfactory proof that he is either an actorn-y or counsellor at law, or that be haa been specially autborixet to do so in ac cordance with ihe provisions of the statute, it ia due to suitors that this, rule be s'jictly observed ia all case*. Ihe great amount of business here transacted? it* character and importance ? deiranda that the court should enforce every statute calculated to protect the rights and interests of litigating parties.

Judgment for defendants. I'iiiluih, J. ? The testimony in this cane being almost wholly depositions taken de btneeine, 1 have noted there on my ruling on the various objections taken to question and answer, with the proper exceptions. Tbe plaintiff claims to recover in this action, under the rule* of law applicable to innkeepers, and tbe defendants resist, tbe claim on tbe following grounds 1. 1 hut they bave the righi to make rules and regula tions tor the well government of their house, and that their guests are bound to obey them. 2. Tbat under the principle ot law treating innkeepers as eommcn carriers, tbe defendants are o.?Iy liable for sufficient money to cover travelling expenses. aul the moi ey having teen paid plaintiff alter bis arrival here, could it be deemed suchr 3. The money lo*t was acquired by the plaintiff aft?r his arrival at tbe hotel, and ill- detendanta are not liable for anything which was not tbe plaintiff'* at the time he commenced boarding. 4. The plain till came to tbe hotel on the 3d of .Septem ber. andlelton the 19th; it muat, therefore, be oreaame.l tbat lie came there aa a boarder and not as a traveller, and if so riefen lanls are not liable. 6. That tbe defendants bad < esignated a particular place in tbeir hotel for money and valuable* lo be sited, sua given notice that tbey will not be responsible for their safety units* they are so deposited Guest* are bound to take notice of thia rule, or iliey *eep their pro perty at their own riak. Ignorance of thy hn^uage on the part of the pla'nliff is no excuse. Aa questions of fact the defendants contend ? first, that there is no evidence beyond the plaintiff's own de clarations, that he deposited any money in the dressing cate before be went to breakfast; aud, secondly, that there is evidence to warrant a fin .ing tbat tbe plain off ronbed himself. Before considering tbe questions of law I shall dispo-ie of the facts. The evidence of l ierre Clbcins. plaintiff'* cousin, is most positive upon the disposition of the moi ey by plaintiff. lie says:? "My cousin put thirty twenty dollar pieces into his dressing ease; I saw him (hut bis dressing case and lock it; it was strong, very .-troop " Nor is his testimony at aU shaken ou cross examination, for in answer to the question, "How do you know tbe number of piecea of gold which the plain tiff placed m hia dressing case V" he says: ? "Because my cousin said to me, '1 keep Ave i>u -id red franc* fur myself, and 1 put the rest in my dressing case,' Mr. i-tan tiago made the caculation belore me ; my cousin took out of the pile five hundred francs? one hundred dollaia ? and put the rest in his dressing case." With rega'd to the po ut tbat this was a "self-rob bery," I cannot perceive anything in the testimony cal culated to throw tbe slightest shade ot suspicion upon, or tsrniab the fair tame cf, the plaintiff. The robbery seemed to have been the affair almost of a moment. Tlaintlffwent hastily to hi* room for bis eve glass ? rtis co?ered. the robbery, aod in a few moment..' returned without hia coat, highly excited, and complalntd of hla loss. If tbeie was anything in the conduct of the nlain ttO at the time to warrant the suspicion that he was the robber, ft certainly would have attracted the attention of the keen and experienced officer of the house, who, by an immediate tearch of the persons of the parti**, could have ascertained it* truth or lalsity. Nothing, however, aeems to have awakened his suspicion No search was instituted. Nor did the defendants seem to have entertained any doubt a* to the character of the plaintiff, 'as he and hi* friends remained in the hotel some sixteen day* after the robbery. It woul 1 be, then, not only a moat unjust, bnt, to my* mind, an outrage ous assumption, upon tht* testimony, to place any ?tigmaup<ii the plaintiff's integrity. Now, as to the law on which the defendants rely In this case: Hotel keepers have an uncontrolled right to make such regulations as they may deem proper for th* gov ernment of their hotels, but it by no means follows tnat by them they necessarily avoid any legal liability; and this brings up what is really the an important question in tbis case. Was the notice on the dooi of plaintiff's room binding on him, and was he bound to know iUcoa tenta? A mere notice that the defemlanta would not be liable for lose unless the money waa deposited in tbesaf* could not operate at a discharge of any liability by tbein, unlet* that notice waa directly and conclusively in ought to the knowledge of the plaintiff. For all the porf-ae* of thi* action tbe rules and liabilities attached to com hod carriers are to be applied tolnr keeper*. In all eases, then, when tbe notice cannot be brought home to the person interested in tbe good*, directly or constructively, It is a mere nullity: and tbe burden of proof le in tl.o carrier to show that tbe person with whom he deals is fully informed of tbe term* and effect of the notice. ? Brooke vs. Hckwick, 4 lling H. 218. 2 1, reel Kv.. f) lilfl The most uiual evidence to show that the plaintiff haa tail notice of the defendant 'a terms, has been by pmottliata notice waa put up in the office when Ihe foods were received and entered for the pnrpc ae of car riage, in so conspicuous a situation that it must (unless be was guilty of wilful negligence,) have attracted tbe attention of the plaintiff. ? 2 Stark.

In the case of Walk*r vs. the New York and North Mo laud Railway Company, 2 Kills A Hiaca, 7i0, it was proved that tbe defendant* printed notices and sent a clerk to circulate them among dealers? the clerk testi fied thai he believed the plaintiff wa* one of tfoao -o win m he delivered the notice*? and tbe plaintiff after ward* asked tli* station manier wbat tbe defendant* meant by sending that old fellow around with thnso no tices, thus admitting that the notice had been brought to his observation. It waa held in this -ase that t.aving had notice of the limitation of their liability by tbe de fn.dai.ts, aud afterwards sanding freight over their read, it was cone uodera -peeial contract created by tli* notice, bevond which the ilefendanis were not bouu 1. In fact the Term "notice" aeems to bo misapplied m tbese cises. }A "notice" i* valueless unless both parties, the inn keeper sod the truest, act under it. It la a con tract between tl.e parties, and the ooct'lne that ina keeper* and carriers c.innot limit their liability by a mere mtiee. haa become too well settled to b* question ed at this nay. lb* pol ey Of the law ia pUin. It was said by Beet, J In Rrooke v*. Piokw i-k, and the rule wa* fuNy sustained by Judge ISrooson, In HoUieter, v*. Now len. 19 Wend. 274: "If coash proprietor- wish honestly to limit their responsibility, tbey ought to announce their term* to every individual wiio appliea at the r of fice, and, at the ssme time, place in his haod a printed pap< r, specifying tbe prec se extent of their engagement, if tliey omtt to <to thia, they attract customer* ufider the confidence inspired by the extensive I ability which the common !aw imposes upon carrier*, and then endeavor to elude that liability by some limitation whieh they have not neen at the pein* to male known to tbe indi vidual who trnated them." In thie case, tha only proof of notice ia, that the card on whieh it was printed waa posted on the Inside door of plaintiff'* rot m, In a ronap'cuou* place, where he would have been moet likely in have see* it, and that hi* attention wa* catted to it by Use officer after the rob berj. To nb?t thia, it m shown by the evid?ae* of the plaintiff's oo main that tbe plaintiff U a fruekau. ud don not apeak or road the English language? that lio ban bat Juat oomuiecced hla Kngliah studies. Thia notice vu Dot odo of which the plaintiff waa bound to inform timself, but waa oao which tho defendant* wore bound to trial directly home to hla observation and un derstanding, if they wished to avoid tho obligation* un der which they were placed by tho common law aa Inn keepers. A notice, theiefore, in English, la ao notice to a frenchman ignorant of our language. Tho notioa wa* not pouted lor the protection of the guaat, bocauao the shield of the law haa for many generation* been thrown around him, guarding by iron rules hla property ? but for tho protection or tho host. and oare ahould bo taken by him that the contenta of the notion ahould bo fully understood bj every traveller whom he aooomnMX datea. Indeed, it is a matter of great aurpriao that in thia city, the great receiving reservoir of tho travelling public in the Now World, tho proprie tors of our spacious hotels are not m ire careful in this respect, and do not print their noticesln the va helu* may at Hi ft blush seem har h and oppressive. but when it is considered that the traveller Is among stran gers, st the iLt-rcy of servants ol whose Honesty be ia utterly ignorant, it must be admitted thtt the host who profits by his custom stiould be liable for all losses sus tained by the guest under nil roof, without the sufferer being put to the proof as to bow t:ie loss occurred In deed, in a majority ol esse* this proof could uot be ad duced. Chief Justice Holt, in delivering his celebrated . udgment in Coggt vs. Bernard, 'i Lord Kuym, 018, said: ''Ibis is t political establishment, contrived by tho ) olicy of the law , for the .-a'ety ol all persons, the neces sity of wbo-e aflaits oblige tht-iu 10 iruit these aorta of ftersons, that tbey may be safe in their ways of deal ng. " It is comparatively lately that the rlgfl rule* In tills resptct have been so much relaxes a< that innkeep er* and carriers may inu.t their responsibility, by ?iy of a notice, so brought to tbe knowledge of a party tbat he, at least constructively, acts uu.ier it, an<l parties who seek to avail them ? Ives of tins relaxation, must bo Cure ful tbat they bring themselves within the principlea whlch govern it It is aln> claimed that the defendant* are not liable, because the money waa received by the plaintiff after be took board at the hotel.
