GREAT SACRIFICE OF PROPERTY. A bankrupt, C. J. Wright, described as of the Conservative Wine Stores, in Throgmorton-street, ap- peared before Mr. Registrar Hazlitt to pass his last examination and for his order of discharge. Mr. Bagley and Mr. Robertson Griffiths appeared for the creditors, and applied to the court for futher accounts. From the examination of the bankrupt it; appeared that he bad carried on business at the Conservative Stores, where he had an execution put in for a debt and a distress for rent, under which considerable property in cigars and wine had been sold at a great sacrifice. Upwards of 1,000 cigars had been seized by a man in possession. The bank- rupt mentioned thatsome claret, worth £ 45, bad been sold for Y,3 10s. The learned counsel requested full particu- lars as to the debts incurred and what had become of the goods the bankrupt had obtained from his creditors. Mr. Bagley said a debt of more than C200 had been incurred with his clients in a short time, and they wanted further accounts of the transaction. The court ordered further and better accounts, with leave to hold a private meet- ing. The protection was renewed. I E OF BIGAMY.
