Bankruptcy court – yesterday. (Before Sheriff Cowan.) In the sequestration of A & J MacDonald.

B. Fyfe, Glasgow, law-agent in the sequestration.  Mr Hart said that at the last meeting of creditors, on the 29th ult., an offer of compensation of 5s per £1, with security, was made by the bankrupts, and the creditors, who were largely represented at the meeting, resolved almost unanimously to entertain the offer. It would be finally disposed of at a meeting to be held on the 18th of this month, and the trustee, therefore, thought it would be judicious to adjourn the diet till after that date.  There being no objections to this course, the Sheriff fixed the adjourned diet for the 24th curt., at noon.  The firm’s liabilities amount to £2635 10s 10d, and the assets to£660, leaving a deficiency of £1975 10s 10d.
