N ERROR TO THE SUPREME COURT

OF APPEALS OF THE STATE OF VIRGINIA

Syllabus

Whether the destruction of a building by fire, communicated from buildings burned by the Confederate forces on leaving Richmond, was covered by a policy which excepted losses resulting from riots, civil commotions, insurrections, or invasions of a foreign enemy is not a federal question, but one of general law, the decision of which by a state court is not reviewable here.

This was a motion to dismiss the writs of error on the ground that no federal question was presented, and that the court was without jurisdiction.
