U.S. Supreme Court MESA v. U S, 67 U.S. 721 (1862)
67 U.S. 721 (Black)
THE UNITED STATES.
December Term, 1862
This was a California land case, in which an appeal had been taken by the Claimant and one Clark, an intervenor. The appella ts suffered a term to pass without filing a copy of the record in this Court, but at the second term brought up the transcript and had it docketed.
Mr. Gillet, of Washington City moved that the appeal be dismissed.
Mr. Magraw, of Pennsylvania, and Mr. McDougall of California, opposed the motion.
Let this appeal be dismissed. It has not been prosecuted in the manner directed nor within the time limited by the Act of Congress, which requires that the transcript shall be filed at the next succeeding term after the appeal is taken
