Syllabus

This Court has no appellate jurisdiction over judgments of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia in criminal cases.

Thomas H. Heath was convicted of manslaughter at a special criminal term of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, and sentenced to be confined in the penitentiary at Albany, New York. Upon appeal to the general term of that court, the judgment was affirmed, whereupon he applied for a writ of error from this Court.

The petition was originally presented to THE CHIEF JUSTICE, and, by order duly made, referred to the Court in session for the consideration and determination of the question of jurisdiction arising thereon.
