Messrs. Fulton, Rich arid Thompson
for Mr. Cheney. M. Railer, on behalf
of,the conipialcUliftitle,l motion for
continuance of the case until a future
day, and based his motion upon the
ground that the - aisswar of the .- raspontt7 the
ents hal:l'6ot ' beeri filed until 'yesterday '
afternoon, and that the answer was ac
companied by an affidavit or Bishop
Whitehouse, all of which, on such short
notice, the c o mplainan t had not had time
to -meet. Mr. Fuller read his own
affidavit, setting out the above
feels, and, also, that the tillegatioas
contained Ii the Anhwei of Rev. Dr.
Chase and others,
,respondents, in some
respects were untrue; that if time was
given him witnesses could be produced
by whom it,could be proved that one of
the defendants who is' ono of the asses

Pressed an. Opinion as to the guilt of Mr.
Cheney, which- allegatidn"was expressly
denied in the answer of respondents,
ffied , eusterday. Mr. Fulton further
asked leave of the Court to file a supple
mental and amended' bill.
The Court denied the application for
continuance. On the question of tiling a
supplemental and amended bill, the
Court said that if, after a -hearing upon
the original and anaWer, It was condu
cive- to the - rights of the parties, he
would allow them to 'be Sled;
without • prejuliee ',. to: the injunction.
Judge Jameson also announced that
he had ordered the injunction to
issue upon a reading of the bill and witb
,out.potice, upon representatir made to
hitufthatif the notice was *I en to the
Ecclesiastical Court, such f p oceedings
might hays been bad by tha ely in the
way cf harrying - their trial t a conclu
sion as would be of irreparabl injury to
Mr. Cheney, and the design and effect of
the injunction, evaded.-
' B. Corning Stidd, - in support of the mo
tion for the dissolution of the injunction,
entered into an elaborate technical
argument. Taking up the averments of
the bill, he denied them aerialim. The
averment of material injury, and the al-
!-legations as to the. growth and develop.
fluent of Christ - Church under Mr.
Chtimy's care, the counsel endeavored 1
to , ridicule .by (piloting, the well
knovin' quotation, - as Ate moving ,
cause of averment, “Who so bloweth
not his own horn. the same shall
, not be -,blowed," and affirmed
that - . , blind justice would 'Unsheath
her sword for the humble curate in a
cottage as well as for a , rector' who ex
pands Iffixiielf ,in. a "church" of‘ palatial
proportions." Tile counsel insisted that
af civil court' had:-no. authority to inter
fere with an ecclesiastical tribunal, and
lilt batl;_that the bill was not sufficient
to warrant the present proceedings. He
aleolknfizattiktbat - the 'proceedings were
all regular on theli face; that ample jus

canons. ' - •
Before Mr. Judd concluded, the Court
adjourned until two o'clock.
- Attio o'clOck the Court met, and Mr.
Judd, counsel for the.assessors, resumed
his argument and finished at three.
He was followed , by Mr. Thompson, in
behalf of--Mr. Cheney, who spoke for *u

who had not finished when the Court

Sir James Anderson, in his remarks,
disclaimed all honor in the Bootless of the
cable enterprise, - which he thought whol
ly due to the officers of the veetels whi . th
had just.departed. The importance of
the ocean telegraph was alluded to and
h o claimed that to Cyrus W. Field, Moie
than any other man living, was olving the
success of; Atlan tic cables._ Soled heard
tliet`Mr. Field oppozei the,laung of
the French`Cahla, and he would t ink it
strange iflie did not. That gap l emon,
is_largeljtuterested :, in the Cantle
1 Cabre, and. it is - but , natural at ho
shined defend hia interest. Sato hon
orttble opposition' goes, they should not
feel offended at it, forunderlike circum
stances tbey..would de the - Paine thing.
He had alisallmatd thit-tumid- opposition
had been made tothe landingogthe cable,
which might aloe be_due to. Mr. Field
and his celleaguits: but he had no fear
that; any 'influence could flitduce the
American people to; act unjustly and
allow millions of money to-be spent in
laying a cable without havlng,tair . plity.
