This was a petition to correct a clerical mistake in the opinion of this Court delivered April 2, 1888, Williams v. Conger,125 U.

To this petition was appended a petition for a rehearing which had been presented and overruled at October Term, 1887, accompanied by a "demand upon the Court" to give it a hearing.
