Interest on the amount of the debt as ascertained by the decree of the circuit court was allowed from the time of the judgment, but the damages allowed by the court were not permitted to bear interest.
The cost of printing a statement of the case for the court was refused to be allowed as part of the plaintiff's costs.
This was a writ of error to remove the proceedings in an admiralty cause from the Circuit Court for the District of Rhode Island. Soon after the decree was there pronounced, the district judge died, and Judge Chase had left the district, so that the record was sent up with all the evidence annexed, but no statement of facts by the court.
