60 U.S. (19 How.) 182

Syllabus

Where an appeal is taken to this Court, the transcript of the record must be filed and the case docketed at the term next succeeding the appeal.

Although the case must be dismissed if the transcript is not filed in time, yet the appellant can prosecute another appeal at any time within five years from the date of the decree, provided the transcript is filed here and the case docketed at the term next succeeding the date of such second appeal.

Mr. Johnson moved to dismiss the appeal, upon the ground that the record was not filed in time.
