Full text of "The jurist"

See other formats

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe. 

About Google Book Search 

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and to make it universally accessible and useful. Google Book Search helps readers 
discover the world's books while helping authors and publishers reach new audiences. You can search through the full text of this book on the web

LOlf DON,. J^ANUARY 15, 1842. 

The pveeent Nvinber of The Jukist commences the 
2few Series, on the extended pLm, of which we gave 
notiee to oar readers in a former Nmnber. (Vol. fi^p. 
856). In departing in any degree &om the plan whidi 
we hare so long pnraued in conducting this Joumaly we 
&el that it is necessaijy and due to our readers and 
««sclvw, to state fully the reasons of the change, not 
«ily that we may protect ourselves from the imputa- 
^nof a mere love of change, hut that we may satisfy 
our reados, that, if the cost of perusing Thb Jubist 
sbftU heeome henoefbrth a heavier charge on their 
worldly estate, there is good ground to anticipate, that 
f hey win derive an advantage in the shape of quantity 
and quality of legal information, equivalent to the in- 
creased expenditure. 

For some time past, our readers may have ohserved, 
that the Reports of The Jurist have been acauiring 
«n increased importance in the eyes of the Proiession. 
They are very frequently cited at the Bar; thev have 
been not infrequently adverted to from the Bench ; and 
they are now constantly referred to in text books pro- 
ceeqjny from the pens of the most eminent writers*. In 

* See Jarutti's Wills, Stoiy's Equity Jurisprndenoe, 
Hayes's CoBvejanciiigi passim, 

Vou Yh A 

fact, The Jurist has become,- we may venture to assert, 
a book of reports of authority. All these indications 
of increased reputation and utility have convinced the 
conductors of this Journal, not that they have attained 
the point at which they may say jam satisj and rest 
oontented with the perfection of their labours, but that 
they have so fairly and fully entered upon a career of 
usefulness to the Profession, that it behoves them to 
press onwards, and seek, by every means in their power, 
to deserve more eminently its approbation and support. 

From the very limited extent hitherto allotted to 
The Jurist, it has been found frequently impossible to 
report all the cases deserving of attention ; and if any 
particular case of great importance occurred in one 
Court, it became necessary, in order to give that case 
with the fullness which its importance demanded, to 
eortaO, or sometimes omit wholly, the Reports of Cases 
in some other Court. If this was so before the creation 
of the two new Equity Courts^ it became necessarily 
much more so afterwards; and the mere addition of 
the Reports of Cases in these Courts would alone, if not 
provided for by some additional ammgements, have 
been productive of deterioration in the general quality 
of the Reports. 

Within the last few years also, the cases in the Judi* 
cial Committee of the Privy Council have assumed a 
character of greater general importance and interest 
than they had formerly. The jurisdiction of that 
Court has been extended ; its sittings have become more 
regular and frequent; it has enjoyed the advantage of a 
more regular Bar, and a more permanent and learned 
Bench ; it has, in fine, become so much an integral and 
viable portion of the judicature of the country, that a 
Journal of Law Reports can hardly be now held com- 
plete, if it does not take cognisance of the proceed- 
ings of that tribunal. 

Lastly, the conductors of this Journal have been 
led to believe, that the Members of that branch of the 
Legal Profession which assists in the administration 
of justice in the Ecclesiastical and Admiralty Courts,' 
have felt great inconvenience from the want of some 
regular and speedy publication of Reports of the Cases 
occurring in those Courts; which, as it is well known, 
have never enjoyed the advantage common to the 
Courts of Law and Equity, of an unbroken series of 

To include thus the Reports of Cases in at least six 
additional Courts, in a space already too confined for 
the cases arising in the Courts of Law and Equity, was 
manifestly impracticable; and to have attempted it, 
permanently, would have been to reduce The Jurist 
from its present standard of utility to the position of a 
mere collection of notes, too brief and uncircumstantial 
to be of any practical use. 

On these grounds, therefore, the conductors of The 
Jurist have determined on the plan of extending its 


pages to a sufficient limit to allow: fizstly, of reporting 
the casesy not only in those ConrU in which the pro« 
ceedings have heen hitherto reported in it, but also in 
the additional Courts mentioned ; and, secondly, of im- 
proving the general quality of the Reports, by putting 
It in the power of the learned counsel who prepare 
them, to report more numerous cases in the several 
Courts ; or, when there are cases of particular import- 
ance, to report them, if necessary, more fullv. 

It is the aim, and it is hoped it will be the result of 
this extension of plan, that the Reports of The Ju&ist 
may attain a degree of accuracy and detail, and, eense- 
quently, of practical utility, which will induce its 
readers not to regret that it is has become a somewhat 
more costly publication. 

With re^rd to the remaining objects of The Jurist, 
no change m the matter is contemplated. It will still 
continue to devote a portion of its pages (and that to 
about the same extent as hitherto) to General Observa- 
tions on the State of the Law — on the Pro|;re8s of Law 
Reforms— on Bills pending before the L^slature; and 
such other matters of supposed general interest to the 
Profession as have hitherto formed the subject of its 
leading articles. It will also still occasionally contain 
in its pa^ Dissertations on Matters of Legal Learning, 
and Reviews of Publications on the Law. 

It is intended, however, to make a change in the 
arrangement of the Original Articles and General Mis- 
cellaneous Information, which will be so printed and 
paged as to allow of their bein^ entirely detached, leav- 
mg the Reports to form, if desired, a distinct volume of 
themselves. This arrangement is adopted with the 
double view of preventing the necessity of each annual 
collection of The Jurist being formed* into one volume 
of inconvenient size ; and of separating that portion of 
the Journal, which is strictly practicd and permanent, 
^m that portion of it which must, necessarily, be only 
of passing and temporary interest. 

We have received from ** The Committee of the Bir- 
mingham Law Society" the following copy of resolu- 
tions passed at their annual meeting on the 23rd of 
October, with a request that we will exert our influ- 
ence, ** not less on account of the public than of the 
Profession, to put a stop to the evil referred to." 

^* That, in the opinion of this meeting, the seller of 
real estate should bear the whole expense of deducing 
and verifying the title whicli he contracts to shew; and 
that it is the necessary effect of stipulations imposing 
this expense on the purchaser, that many titles are 
passed when really baa, and most are subject to a dan- 
gerous defect of evidence; and thus, the holders of nro- 
perty are becoming more and more insecure, and Soli- 
citors at once lose, to a rreat extent, the highest depart- 
ment of business, and, by the sacrifice, incur the most 
alarming responsibility. 

" That it is, therefore, the duty of every Solicitor not 
only to omit such stipulations in all conditions prepared 
by him, but to resist every attempt to introduce them 
at sales by auction. 

•* It is not, however, intended to interfere with stipu- 
lations restricting the title to be shewn in any case, out 
merely to oblige the seller to prove the title which he 
undertakes to shew. 

*^ That this resolution be printed, and a copy sent to 
every solicitor within thirty miles of Birmingham.'* 

We are not acquainted with the constitution or ob- 
jects of the Birmingham Law Society, but we are very 
much su prised that any body of Lawyers should have 
been guilty of a manifesto so absurd and discreditable 
as this. Do these gentlemen suppose that they, or ** all 
the Solicitors within thirty miles of Bii-mingham,'* or 
even all the Solicitors on tne roll, can dictate to sellers 
and buyers the terms on which ihey shidl deal; or 

that takf snch restriction wodld be beneficial, if it could 
be enforced t We should hdve thought, that, in the 
manufacturing ^istric^ at least, the policy of leaving 
the r^ulatioa pf commerce entirely in the hands of the 
parties concerned, would have been better understood ; 
at any rate, that Solicitors would have known that 
it is their duty to do the utmost that can honestly be 
done for the interests of their clients — and not to make 
any compromise for the benefit of third persons^ who 
are quite able to protect themselves. 

The proposition of the Birmingham Law Society is^ 
however, obviously false, as fitf as the iatersets of tbm 
public are concerned; for the effect of throwing th« 
whole expense of deducing and verifying the title upon 
the seller, is to encourage the purcha^r to make all 
kinds of unreasonable and frivolous requisitions and 
objections, which he would never dream of insistiiig 
on as essential to his security, if part or the whole 
of the consequential expenses were, according to th« 
modem and salutary practice, thrown upon him. If, to 
save his pocket, he neglects inquiries which are pni* 
dent or necessary, the fault is entirely his own or his 
Hgent's, and not at all that of the system. 

Edward Cave, who projected the Gentleman's Maga- 
2in^, never looked out of window, aceordinjg to Johnson, 
but with a view to his magazine; and Brindley, the 
engineer, once avowed his belief, before a Committee of 
the House of Commons, that Providence, in creating 
rivers, had solely in view the feeding of navigable ca^ 
nals. So, the gentlemen of the Birmingham Com- 
mittee seem to ima^ne that estates are sold and 
bought solely for their eroolument» Indeed, the true 
source of their tears is avowed by themselves to be 
the loss to the profession at least as much as the in* 
security of the public. " SolicUorSy^ they ui^e, with 
the coolest effrontery, *'a# onee lose, to aoreat extent, 
the MgktH department of business, and, fy the saeri^ 
fice, incur the most alarming responsihility ;** in other 
words, the majority of conditions of sale, at the present 
day, are vicious, because they do not allow of suffi- 
ciently long bills of costs. As to the responsibility, it 
is a matter of every-day occurrence for a Solicitor to 
take from his client an express aotliority to dispense 
with particular inquiries, &c. We have, perhaps, taken 
more notice of this circular than it deserves^ for we 
cannot suppose that it will meet with any sanction from 
the body of the profession. 


On two occasions during last Michaelmas Term, Lord 
Denman, C. J., announced the principle by which the 
conrt of Queen's Bench is guided, in deciding upon the 
sufficiency of the evidence produced in support of an 
application for a criminal information. (See Has parta^ 
WiUiams, 6 Jur. 1183, and note thereto). It is this: 
that the court requires the same amount of evidence 
which a grand jury ought to require in support of 
bills of inaictment preferred before them. This prin- 
ciple may, to some le^ minds, appear too uncertain 
to be of much practical use, either in determining' 
parties, whether or not they should have recourse to 
this extraordinaxy remedy, or even in guiding the court 
in the exercise of this discretionary power. It pos- 
sesses, however, the recommendation of professing to 
limit the jurisdiction of the court within constitutional 
bounds; and it has the merit of attempting to tr^ the 
strength of an ex parte accusation by a standard, which is 
set up throughout the country in the administration of 
criminal justice ; and by which it would be measured^ 
if the ordinary method of indictment were pursued. 

It is well known, that, at common law, informations 
were filed in the eonrt of Queen's Bench, by the Master 


of the Ciown Office, npoti the application of any indi- 
Tidnal, OS a matter of course ; but that practice beine 
attended with the inconveniences and mischiefs recited 
in the preamble to thestat. 4 & 5 W. & M. c. 18, ** An 
Ad to prevent Malidons Informationa in the Court of 
King^a Bench, and for the more easy Reversal of Out- 
lawries in the aame Court," it was thereby enacted, 
that the Clerk of the Crown should not exhibit, receive, 
or file any information, without the express order of 
the court pnblidy g^ven. ** That statute," Lord 
Kenyon observes, in if. v. Jdlife, (4 T. R. 490), «« does 
not enumerate the grounds which are sufficient to 
enable the court to grant the information; but the 
Legislature left it to the discretion of the court, trusting 
that it would not so far transgress its dut\' as to go be- 
yond the rales of sound discretion." The court has, 
however, Hroited its own jurisdiction in this matter by 
conuderations, which may be referred to four several 
pointa: first, the merits of the person applying; se- 
condly, the time of the application; thiniiy, the na- 
ture of the chaiige; fourthly, the amount of evidence 
prodnccd in support of the chaise. 

The principle above stated governs the cohsidera- 
tioBe arising on the last point : to illustrate and confirm 
the importance of that principle, is the object of the fol- 
liYviBg citations and remarks. The cases referred to are 
all cttOB of application for a criminal information. 

In Jl^.T. Haswelly (1 Dougl. 987), where the affidavits 
of the prosecntor as to the publication of the libel, were 
contiaaicted by those of the defendant. Lord Mans- 
fidd, on making the rule absolute, said, ^' Wherever a 
strong probable ground is laid, the court will grant an 
information, if the subject matter is fit for that mode 
of prosecntion." In B. v. Jdliffe, (4 T. R. 286, 289), 
Ltnd Kenyon said, *^ We oxt not now to determine 
irbetber or not the defendant be guilty of the offence 
wUch is imputed to him, but, merely, whether suffi- 
deat matter appears to warrant us in putting the ^uilt 
or innocenee of the defendant into a constitutional 
coarse of trial. Before we send it down to be tried, it 
is necessary for us to be convinced that the corpus 
delicti stands established;" and, in p. 290, his Lord- 
ship added, ^ The question is, whether or not there be 
any legal evidence before the court to afiect the de- 
fendant with this charge." Ashurst, J., in ^. 292, said, 
*• The question is, whether they (the affidavits) contain 
sofficient matter to satisfy our consciences that the in- 
formation oueht to be granted," In R, v. fVillett, (6 
T. R. 294), toe court took a view of their position, ac- 
cording precisely vnth the recent judgment. In that 
case the affidavits, in support of the application, alleged 
that one Hatherley, who delivered a letter containing 
a dialleige to the party applying to the court, and who 
wai the acting clerk of Willett, the party against whom 
the applieatioii was made, had stated that he was desired 
by wuktt to deliver it ; and the court refused a rule, be- 
cause the affidavit cUd not contain leml evidence. " They 
said, that in these cases they were placed in the room of 
agna& jury ; that, if a bill of indictment were preferred 
before a grand jury, the affidavits or the oaths of these 
penooa, of what Hatherley had said, would not be legal 
eridenee gainst the defendant; and that this court 
eonld only grant an information on evidence that would 
support a bill of indictment. That, if they were to 
grant a rule eaUing on the defendant to sliew cause 
why an' information should not be filed against him, 
it would be (filing on him either to give evidence (on 
the shewing cause) against himself, or leaving the rule 
to be made absolute on this affidavit alone, which was 
not l^al evidence." In R, v. Young/tusband, (4 Nev. & 
M. 8d()L which was a case similar in its circumstances, 
Lord dSnman, C. J., said, "We think that the evi- 
dence falls short of what we ought to require before 
we giant a rule for a criminal information." Other 
occur in wliich the court has refused a rule, on 

the ground that the evidence waa either insufficient to 
establish the corpus delicti, or defective in connecting 
the party with the act complained of; but without lay- 
ing down any general rule, which Duller, J., in R. v. 
Haswellf (1 Dougl. 889), observed, there ought to be in 
all such cases of discretionary power. In R, v. Steward 
and Others^ (2 B. & Adol. 12), a rule was made abso- 
lute against the defendants for bribery, upon the un- 
supported but uncontradicted affidavit of a party who 
had received a bribe. In Ex parte Fentiman^ (2 Adol. 
& Ell. 127; S. C, 4 Nev. & M. 126), which was an ap- 
plication against magistrates. Lord Denman, C. J., said, 
**The fiEusts stated do not furnish sufficiently cogent proof 
of corruption to authorize the granting of this rule." 
In R. V. Baldwin, (S Adol. & £11. 168; S. C, 3 Nev. 
& P. 342), whore tne affidavit in support of the rule 
alleged that the defendant was the printer of a news- 
paper, and that the defendant printed the libel in the 
said newspaper, a copy of which was annexed; the 
court held tliat such pfim4 facie evidence was insuffi- 
cient. Two cases remain to be mentioned, only for the 
purpose of expressing a doubt, whether, in the present 
state of the law on this subject, tliey can be considered 
as safe authorities; they are R. v. Sharpe^ (Andr. Rep. 
384), and R. v. Chappel^ (1 Burr. 402). 

The importance of the principle promulgated by Lord 
Denman, C. J., can be duly estimated only by consider- 
ing the duty of a grand jury in dealing with a bill of 
indictment according to the evidence produced before 
them. For that purpose, the tract written by Lord So- 
mers, on occasion of the grand jury of the city of Lon- 
don refusing to act upon the instruction of Pemberton* 
C. J., and ignoring the bill of indictment preferred 
against Lord Shaftesbury, a.d. 1681, may be most pro- 
fitably consulted. But the two following passages are so 
relevant, that they seem to demand immediate citation*: 

**' There are two vulgar errors concerning the duties 
of grand jurors, which, if not removed, will, in time, 
destroy aU the benefit we can expect from that institu- 
tion, by turning them into a mere matter of form, 
which were designed for so great ends. Many have, of 
late, thought, and affiimed it for law, that the grand 
jury is neither to make so strict inquiry into mattens 
before them, nor to look for so clear evidence of the 
crime, as the petit jury ; but that their presentments 
being to pass a second examination, they ouffht to in- 
dict upon a superficial inquiry and ))are probabilities ; 
whereas, should either of these opinions oe admitted, 
the prejudice to the subject would be equal to the total 
laying aside grand juries; there being, in truth, no 
difference between arraigning without any presentment 
from them at all, and their presenting upon slight 
grounds*." Again, 

*< It b scarce credible, that any, learned in our laws, 
should tell a grand jury, that a far less evidence will 
warrant their indictment, being but an accusation, than 
the petit jury ought to have for their verdict. Both of 
them do, in like manner, plainly and positively affirm 
upon their oaths the truth of the accusation ; their ver- 
dicts are, indeed, one and the same in substance and 
sense, though not in words. There is no real difierence 
between affirming in writing, that an indictment of 
treason is true, as is the practice of grand juries^ and 
saying, that the party tried thereupon is guilty of the 
treason whereof ne is indicted, as is the course of petit 
juries. They are both upon their oaths; they are 
equally obligatory unto both ; the one, therefore, must 
expect the same proof for their satisfaction as the other ; 
and as clear evidence must be required for an indict- 
ment as for a verdict. It is unreasonable to think that 
a slighter proof should satisfy the consciences of the 
greater jury than is requisite to convince the less; and 

* "^^ The Security of Engfishmen's Lives, or the Tnut, 
Power, and Duty of Grand Juries of England," pp. 83, 84.«- 
Lond. 1766, 


uncharitable to imagine^ tliat these should not be as 
sensible as the others of the sacred security they have 
given, by oath, to do nothing in their offices but accord- 
ing to truth*." ^ G.J.P.S. 


In the sixth year of the reign of Edward III., 
(A.D.I 333), when the lawyers had just established 
■themselves in the Convent of the Temple, and had in- 
gi*afled upon the old stock of Knights Templars their 
infant Society for the Study of the Practice of the 
Common Law, the Judges of the Court of Common 
Pleas were made Knights, being the earliest instance 
on record of the grant of the honor of knia;hthood for 
services purely civil ; and the Professors of the Common 
Law, who had the exclusive privilege of practising in 
that court, assumed the title or degree of Freres Serjens, 
or Fratres Servientes; so that Knights and Serving 
Brethren, similar to those of the antient order of the 
Temple, were most curiously revived and introduced 
into the profession of the law 

The /V(?rw Serjetu of the Temple wore linen caffs, 
and red caps close over them. At the ceremony of 
their admission into the fraternity, the Master of the 
Temple placed the coif upon their heads, and threw 
over their shoulders the wliite mantle of the Temple ; 
he then caused them to sit down on the ground, and 
gave them a solemn admonition concerning the duties 
and responsibilities of their profession. They were 
warned, that they must enter upon a new life ; that 
tliey must keep themselves fair and free from stain, 
like the white garment that had been thrown around 
them, which was the emblem of purity and innocence ; 
that they must render complete and perfect obedience 
to their superiors ; that they must protect the weak, 
succour the needy, reverence old men, and do good to 
the poor. 

The Knights and Serjeants of the Common Law, on 
the other hand, have ever constituted a priviliged fra- 
ternity, and always address one another by the endear- 
ing terra brother. 

The religious character of the ancient ceremony of 
admission into this legal brotherhood, which took place 
in Church, and its striking similarity to the ancient 
mode of reception into the fraternity of the Temple, 
are curious and remarkable. 

" Capitalis Justitiarius," says an ancient MS. account 
of the creation of Serjeants-at-Law in the reign of 
Hen. 7, ^'monstrabat eis plura bona exempla de eorum 
predecessoribus, et tunc posuit les coy/es super eorum 
capitibus, et induebat eos singulariter de capital de 
skarletto, et sic creati fuerunt servientes ad legem." 

In his admonitory exhortation, the Chief Justice 
displays to them the moral and religious duties of their 
])rofession: "Ambulate in vocatione in qua vocati 
estis . . . Disce cultum Dei, reverentiam superioris, 
inisericordiam pauperi." He tells them the coif is 
" sicut vestis Candida et immaculata," the emblem of 
purity and virtue ; and he roinraences a portion of his 
discourse in the scriptural language used by the Popes 
in the famous bull conceding to the Templars their 
vast spiritual and temporal privileges: " Omne datum 
optimum et omne donum perfectum decuroum est 
di'scendens a patre lumtnuiu," ike. 

The Freres Serjens of the Temple were strictly en- 
joined to *• eat their bread in silence," and " place a 
watch upon their mouths;" and the Freres Seirjens of 
the law, we are told, after their admission, did *• dyne 
together with sober countenance and lytcl communy-

Criminal Jusncx in Prussia.— There has just been 
published at Berlin a statistical account of the criminal 
justice for the last 23 years, in the whole of the king- 
dom of Prussia, under the German system of legida- 
tion — that is, with the exception only of the Rhenish 
provinces, in which the French code is still in force. 
From this work it appears, that, during the period 
mentioned, there have been 812 criminala condemned to 
death, viz. 234 men and 78 women, making on an 
average about 13 capital sentenoes per annum, or 4 in 
every 3,000,000 inhabitants, the population of this part 
of Prussia being reckoned at 10,000,000. Of the 312 
capital convicto, 145 only were executed, of whom 130 
were men and 16 women. Among the 78 women con- 
demned to death, 33 were for infanticide, all of whom 
were fully pardoned or their sentences commuted 

Chancery Accounts. — Some idea of the magnitude 
and importance of the operations of the court of Chan- 
cery may be formed from the following detail :^Ac- 
cordine to a statement just completed, it appears that 
the balance of cash and securities placed to the credit of 
the various accounts in Chancerv amounts to the extra- 
ordinary sum of 42,000,000/. and upwards. At present 
the actual number of theae accounts is about 12,000; 
but Parliament has recently determined that all the 
accounts bdonging to the court of Exchequer (amount- 
ing to 1,600 or thereabouts) diall be added to them, 
thus forming an aggregate of 13,600. For facilitating 
the business incidental to this great mass of accounts* 
such as the payment of the quarterly dividends, &c., 
the officers have hitherto been divided into tbvee de- 
partments, (arranged according to the letters of the 
plaintilla* names), bnt we believe it is now determined 
to subdivide these departments into four. Great exer- 
tions are being made to carry this into effect; and the 
new arrangement will, no doubt, contribute much to 
the expedition of business and the convenience of the 
suitors, so soon as the labour of closing and bringing 
forward into new books such a vast number of accounts 
(for the purpose of subdivision) shall be completed. 
The offices in Chancery-lane are undergoing material 
alterations in order to afford accommodation for tiie 
carrying on this gceai increase of buttoefls*

and has been in practice about four years, is desirous of en- 
tering into PARTNERSHIP with a GenUeman of respectable

sistance, and would consider relief from the active and la-

LONDON, JANUARY 22, 1842. 

So aMiijr Siatates hare been passed upon the subject 
of Jkm ki i fl ey atnee the Consolidatiiig Act of 6 Geo. 
4> c. 16; and so xnanjr glosses and further provisions 
hBfa bean snppUed to those enactments by the Courts, 
that thia branch of commercial law has become nearly 
ss p stfisggd as it was in 1826. The subject of protec- 
tion to pavtiea deaUng with traders has, in particular, 
neeiTedasTeral touches at the hands of the L^skture 
and ^ Bench, and is now in such a state, that many 
«f onr iMdcKS .wiQ probably not object to a brief no- 
tice of the moat important points. 

We will, in the first phM», state the enactments. By 
tke 6 Geo. 4, c 16, s. 86, honk fide purchasers for value 
from a hmkrupt, with notice of an act of bankrupt^, 
en prolestad, unless the fiat issues within a year. By 
the 81ji aectami, conveyances by, and contracts and 
other dealiiua ai»d tvansactionB by and with, any bank- 
TUfi, beni fida made and entered ' 

into more than two 
) the issuing of the commission, and all 
I and attachments against the lands or goods 
of the baakn^ bona fide exeeuied or looted more than 
tno msnths beioie the issuing of the commiasion, were 
dedaied valid, notwithstanding a prior act of bank- 
ruptcy, if the party so dealing, &c., had no notice of 
Saet ofhankmptcy. By the 82nd section, any honk 
payment made by or to a bankrupt, without*notice 
of an act of bankruptcy, is made valid against a subse- 
9iient fiat, unless it be a fraudulent preference; and 
the Mth section, in like manner, protects parties deli- 
vering fsoda of the bankrupt without notice. Lastly, 
by sect 106, it Is enacted, that no creditor having 
siOQri^farldad^ or Jiavmg attached the goods of 
the bsBloMl, duOl vBoetve more than a zataUe part 
eiwmkrdMf aacept in respect of any execution or exr 
Vou VI. B 

tent served and levied by seizure upon, or any : 
of, or lien upon, any pajrt of the property of such 1 
rapt, l)efore the bankruptcjr ; provided^ that no credHor^ 
though for a valuable constdierationy shall aoaU himself 
of an execution uoon any judgment obtained by default, 
cot^tssion^ or nil aicit. 

It was held, that an execution on final judgment bv 
defoul^ was within the last cited proviso, as were all 
executions, except on judgment after verdict, trial bv 
the record, or on demurrer. (Cuming v. ffealcy 4 M. 
& P. 238). Upon this, it was enacted, (1 Will. 4, c. 7, 
s. 7), that no judgment signed, or execution issued on 
a cognovit signed, after declaration filed or delivered, 
or judgment by default, confession, or nil dic|t^ accord- 
ing to the practice of the Court, in any action coxnmenced 
adversely and not by collusion for the purpose of fiuu- 
lent preference, should be within the 108th section of 
the Bankrupt Act. This enactment left judgments on 
warrants of attorney unprotected. (OrossfieEi v. Stan* 
/^f, 1 Nev. & M. 668). 

. The 12th section of Sir £. Sugden's Act (2 & 3 Vict, 
c. 11) save validity to all oonoey€mces by any oankrupt, 
bon& nde made and executed before the dato and issumg 
of the fiat, to persons without notice of any prior act 
of bankruptcy; but this particular provinon was su- 
perseded by the general and important enactment in, 
the 29th chapter of the same session, which, after re- 
citing the 82nd section of the Bankrupt Ac^ and the 
12th section of Sir £. Sugden's Act, enacts, ** that all 
contracts, dealings^ and transactions by and with any. 
bankrupt really and bond fide made and entered into 
before tne date and issuing of the fiat against him, and 
all executions and attachments i^inst the lands and te- 
nements, or ffoods and chattels of such bankrupt, bond 
fide* execute or levied before the date and issuing t of 
the fiat, shall be deemed to be valid, notwithstanding 
anv prior act of bankruptcy by such bankrupt commit- 
ted, provided the peison or persons so dealing with 
such bankrupt, or at whose suit, or on whose account, 

* See Hall t. Wallace, (7 Mec. ic W. 353; 5 Jur, 198). 

t The time of deUrering out the fiat as an operat i fe inftni. 
meat is <' the date and iieaing" of the fiat; i. e., prim& ficie, 
the time of defiveriog it oat of the bankrapC oAoe. Pewtreee 
V. .<laaaii, (9 P. P. C. 828). 



such execution or attachment shall have issued, had 
not, at the time of such contract, dealing, or tranaao- 
tion, or at the time of ezecuiii^ or lerying eoch exe- 
cution or attachment, notice of any prior act of bank- 
ruptcy by him committed ; provided also, that nething 
herein contained shall be deemed or taken to give yall- 
dity to any payment made by any bankrupt, being a 
fraudulent preference of any creditor or creditors of 
such bankrupt, or to any execution founded on a judg- 
zuent on a wanaat of attorney or cognovit given mr 
any bankrupt by way of such fraudulent preference. 

Tbe 82n«l section of the Bankrupt Act» proteeting 
payments without notice, was clearly retrospective; 
( Terrington v. Hargreave$j 3 Moo. & r, 137) ; and, in 
the case of LuMn v. Simpson, (4 Jur. 487, 8 &;ott, 676), 
it was laid down, and in effect decided, that the 2 & 9 
Vict. c. 29, is retrospective, and gives the law to all 
cases that come for adjudication before the court, al- 
though the transaeticm took place before the passing of 
the act. There the levy was made on the 16th February, 
1839; the fiat issued, and the assignees were appointed 
on the 23rd ; and the act received the royal assent t>n the 
16th July, an issue to tiy the validity of the fiat then 
standing for trial. (See Nelsttop v. Soarubtiei^ 6 Mee. 
& W. 684). However, this decision has been over- 
ruled ; and it is now aettlsd, f with the ooncuireiioe of 
the Judges of the Common Pleas),, that, where the as- 
signees have been appointed before the 16th July, 1839, 
their vested title is not divested by the aet. {Edmmds 
V. LavfUyy 6 Mee. & W. 285 ; Moore v. Phillips. 7 Mee. 
& "W. 636). But, in cases where the passing of the act 
intervened between the issuing of the fiat and the ap- 
pointment of the assignees, it seems that the transaction 
would be protected. (Id. ; Nehtrop v. Scatishrv^)^ 

The most important question, nowever, Is, to what 
extent must an execution proceed before the fiat, to be 
protected ? Although, for the puipose of changing the 
property of the goods, and overreaching the title of a 
creditor nnder a prior writ, or the prerogative tftle of 
the Crown, seizure is not sufl^ient, but the goods must 
be actually sold ; yet, for the purpose of the 8l8t section 
of the Bankrupt Act^ seizure is a sufficient levying of 
the execution. {Oiles v. Orwer, 2 M. & Scott, 207, 241; 
Godson V. Sanctuary, 1 Nev. & M. 62. See Thomas v. 
Desangesy 2 B. & Aid. 586; Samuel v. Didc, 3 Mee. & 
W. 622). But as the ownership is not changed until 
sale, the creditor is, after seizure and until sue, a cre- 
ditor holding security within the 106th section ; and, if 
not protected by the Slst section, (or now by the 2 & 3 
Vict. c. 29), cannot avail himself of his security. 
(Notley V. Buck, 8 B. & C. 160; 2 M. & tty. 0B; Mor- 
land V. Petl<m, 8 B. & C. 722; 3 M. & Ry. 411). 
After sale, (though before the return day of the fi. fa.), 
the 108th section does qot apply, even where the judg- 
ment was entered up on a warrant of attorney, &c.; for 
the party suing out execution then ceases to be a cre- 
ditor. ( Wymer v. Kembley 6 B. ft C. 479; 9 D. & R. 
511; Higgins v. M*Adam, 3 Y. & J. 1). 

Neither the 81st nor the 108th section of the Bank- 
rupt Act is repealed by, or even refeired to in, the re- 
cent act ; but with the exception of the concluding pro- 
viso against fraudulent preference, the new enactment 
is the same as the 81 st section of the old act, the date 
of the fiat only being substituted for two months before 
such date ; and as executions under judgments on war- 
rants of attorney, levied by seizure two months before 
the fiat, were held to be protected by the 81st section 
fVom the 108th, Godson v. Sanduary, 1 Nev. & M. 52; 
4 B. & Adol. 255 J, it should seem that they would now 
be protected by tne new act, wherever the fiat issues 
after the seizure, though before sale. The court of 
Common Pleas has, however, decided, that executions 
on judgments not obtained on actions commenced ad- 
versely, must be ^xfected by sale before the fiat, (and, 
it i^ould seem^ also before the banktuplcy), t« be 

Sotected by the iww act. ( Whitmore v. Robertson, 8 
ee. & W. 463; 5 Jut. 1088). Hie ground on which 
this somewhat unexpected decision was founded is 
simply this, that, as the act gives validity to executions 
levied before the fiat, ** notwithstanding any prior act 
of bankruptcy," it merely places them m the same si- 
tuation as if no act of biniKrupto]^ had ooouned; and 
thus afibrds a complete protection in case of executions 
on adverse judgments, which could only have been in« 
validated by prior acts of bankruptcy. Bittyii to av 
ecutions under warrants of attorney, the 108th section 
diB£Batod them, (unless perfected by sa]« he§ot% bank- 
ruptcy), although there were no' prior act of b^k- 
ruptc^; and, therefore, the putting them in the same 
situation as if there had been no act of teftktnptcy, 
does not exclude the operation of that section. And 
this ^seasoning appears to be unanswerable, for the ide 
oliject of the enactment was, undoubtedly, to put an eqd 
to the relation of the assignees* title to tne act of bank- 
ruptcy, and not at all to affect any other part of the 
bahkrupt law. But the important result of the deci- 
sion is, that the case of Godson r, Sandtudty (cited 
supm) is overruled ; and executioas under wsaitants of 
attoniey are taken, not only out of the new act, but 
also out of the 81st section of the Bankrupt Act; and 
judgment creditors are liable to bd defeated by an act 
of bankruntcy intervening between seizure and sale, 
although tne fiat may not issue until aft^r the expira- 
tion of two months from the seizure. In WMl^nore v. 
Robertson \htJUa had issued before sale, but the prin- 
ciple of the Vision obviously applies where the sale 
precedes the fiat, if it follow the act of bankruptcy. 

The practical effect of the recent decision wm be, to 
increase the number of adverse actions, amd to quicken 
the proceedings of execution creditors. 

CHISEMENTS, UNt)ER THE 4 & 6 Vict. c. 35. 

The commutations of manorial rights which the sta- 
tute embraces, are eitkar, (1 ) such as, cnriffioatBag in the 
viduntary agreement of a majorit^r of the persons in- 
terested, are caknpulsoiy on the minority ; or (2) such 
as are voluntary on the part of all the persons whose 
interests are immediately atfiected. For Uie saike of dis- 
tinction, therefore, the fonner kind of comniutatioB 
may be denominated a compulsory ceoinnitalion, and 
the ktter, a poluntofy oommutation. 

lather of these kinds of conmmtatioii, a compulsory 
commutatioi^ as well as a vobmittry ccmnniitatioa, may 
extend over a whole manor, or only orer part of a 
manor« Fer, by the 102nd section of tira act, the com- 
miasioiMrB, with the ooasent of the lord of the manor, 
have the power of dividing a manor into portions for 
the purpose of a oonnniitatioB, either volontaiy or ten- 
pulsorr. And if all the tenants of a manor can agree 
with tne lord and among themsdvee upon the terms of 
oonnnutation, they may «fiect a voluntary commttto- 
tion in the same manner as the act enables one or mom 
of the tenants to effect a partial commutation with in- 
spect to their own lands; and, in such a oase^ it will 
not be necessary fi)r them to have recoune to the more 
expensive and cumbersome machinery of a eompvikBory 
CMimmntation • 

Since the mode of proceeding directed by iha act dif- 
fers according as the oommutation is compulsory or 
voluntary, but not necessarily according as it is general 
or ]>artiai, the subject appears to divide itself most con- 
veniently into the oonsiaemtion of tiiose provisions of 
the act that relate to oompulsoiy commutations, fmd 
those that relate to voiuntaiy commutations. 

The coannissioners, indeed, in the Inslaractioiis pra- 
fixed to liie fbrms issiied by ^Inm, di»btnfiiish-&sfe

giTcn above, the denominationB we hare

ject-matter of the act, and the moat conducm to a right 
wniitinNiidiflg of the nature of its proviaions, 

L CoHPOiMKr CoMMUTAnoKS.— I. PfweeHtiffi. 

If on the tenants of a manor, (or of a portion of a 
manory when dlyided by the commiflrioners*), cannot 
aficewith the lord and amone themselves upon the 
terms of a voluntary commutation, the following me- 
thod of proceeding is authorised by the act for the pur- 
pose of eflfecting a commutation that shall be com- 
pulsoiy- on all the parties interested. 

Momonal MeOmg.'] — A meeting of the lord and 
tenants may be called by a notice signed either by the 
lord, boring on interest not less than one-fourth of the 
aanoal Tslue of the manor, or hv ten of the tenants ; or, 
if then be not so many, bv naif the tenants of the 
BSDsr: sa^ notice to be puolished and advertised as 
dbccted br the Idth section. At the meeting a chair- 
man is to be elected by the lord and tenants, (the vote 
of the lotd being reckoned as equal to one-third of the 
^diole nomber of votes, and the votes of the tenants 
beiiig reekoned individually), and the chairman is to 
pneeed to ascertain the number and interest of the lord 
sad tenjmta present, computing the interests of the 
tensBta in the manner 4>rovided by the 17th section ; 
sod if the interest of the lord who is present appears to 
amount to three-fourths of the value of the manor, and 
the tenants present are not less than three-fourths of 
the whole in number and interest, they may proceed to 
enter into and execute an agreement mr commutation. 
If it should appear that the persons present are not suf- 
ficient in nnmber and interest, or a sufficient portion 
are not willing to enter into an agreement, any number 
eff the penons may, nevertheless, execute a provisional 
agncmsnty which, if executed within six months by a 
siiBckBt proportion of parties, will be equally effectual 
as if sofficiently executed at the meeting, f Sect. 16). 
The meeting may be adjourned by the dealre of the 
majority of the penons present, due notice of the ad- 
jowned meeting Deingjnven according to sect. 18. 

l%e Aareement.y--Vne agreement is to be in such 
form as the commissioners snaU direct; and they have 
aheodj issaed a form for the purpose. It is to bear 
date on the day on which the first signature is attached 
to it, (sect. 19), which must be done at the original 
meeting, or a r^uUrly adjourned meeting. 

PmrUew to the Affremeni.2 — ^It must be si^ed bv the 
parties already mentioned, as required for its validity, 
viz. not leas tlum three-fourths in number of the tenants, 
fend the lord and tenants whose interests in the manor 
and lan^ amount to not less than three-fourths of their 
mp c ctlwa value, (sect. 13) ; computing the interests of 
tfia t s MuA a in the manner directed by sect. 17. which 
provi d e a, thai the interest of no person shall oe com- 
peted TOO has not been admitted, or who has made an 
absohte aumnder of his copyhold; and enables the 

eoBsWoners, in certain cases, to make special rules 
tar the computation of interests : and in case of dispute 
Oi to the sufficiency of interest of parties, the decision 
of the eonmiisBioneni is to be conclusive. (Sect. 14^. . 

In the case of an ecclesiastical or other corporation, 
or the patron of a living, being interested in the manor 
er any of the lands to the extent of one-third of their 
ammal value, the consent of such parties will be necea- 
■arv to the validity of the agreement. (Sect. 22). 

If any party interested be under a disability, or 
abioad, the 11th section substitutes the guardian, trus- 
tee, eommittee of the estate, husband, or attorney, in 
the phoe of such person, for the purposes of the act. 
Ana sect. 12 enables the lord or any of the tenants of 

* ThawDvd 

wlMoefer used hsKesfter, is to be 

( to N^ a portkm of f manor 

the manor to appoint, by power of attorney, an agent 
to attend the meetings, and enter into and Bk;n the 
agreement, and do all other acts for them under the 
provisions of the act. 

Termi of the Agreanentjy^Tht agreement will ex- 
press whether the commutation is to be for a rent- 
chaige, and small fine not exceeding 5f., or for a fine 
on death or alienation, or at some fixed period. If the 
former is agreed to be the oonsideration of the commu- 
tation, the agreement may either fix the amount of the 
entile rent-charge payable to the lord, or provide that 
its amount shall be fixed by the valuers, subset to the 
approbation of the commissioners; and if the amount 
be stated, it may either determine the apportionment 
for each tenant, or provide that the apportionment shall 
be made by the valuers, with the like ap^bation; or 
aeparate rent-charges may be agreed u|pon between the 
lord and any one or more tenants, ])arties to the agree- 
ment; or the agreement may provide, that the entire 
rent-chaige therein atated sliaU be subject to increase 
or diminution by the valuers to a specified amount per 
cent., or that such sepan^ rent-chaiges shall be subject 
to increase or diminution to a given amount per cent, 
in certain specified events. The agreement may also 
provide, that so much of the rent-chaige apportioned 
in respect of the limds of any tenant, who is a party to 
the agreement, as shall be in lieu of fines, &c., to which 
such tenant would not be liable thereafter during hia 
tenancy, shall not commence till the time of the next 
act or event on which such &[ie &c. would have become 
due. (Sect. 14). 

If the commutation is for a fine on death or aliena- 
tion, or at some fixed period, the agreement is either to 
fix the amount of Uie fine, or provide that it shall be 
subject to increase or diminution by the valuers to a 
specified amount per cent. If the fine is to be payable 
at a fixed period, the agreement will specify that pe- 
riod. (Sect. 16). 

The commutation will extend to rents, reliefis and 
services, (except service at the lord's court), and also to 
lines, henots, and payments in lieu of heriots, and the 
lord's rights in timber, without any express mention of 
them in the agieement. But, if it is also intended to 
commute theiord's rights in mines, they must be ex- 
pressly included in the agreement. fSect. 13). If the 
lord's rights in mines are reserved to him, rights of way 
for mining purposes may be mnted to the lord, by a 
statement to that effect in the agreement. (Sect. 84). 
Any other right cannot be made the subject of a eomr- 
pmwry commutation. (Sect. 82). 

The agreement may likewise fix a scale of fees to be 
payable to the steward after the commutation, but so as 
not to affect the interests of any steward now in office, 
who holds his office for life or during f;ood behaviour, or 
according to the usage has, in the opmion of the commis- 
sioners, a just expectation of so holding it. (Sect. 14). 

The agreement may also provide for the costs of the 
proceedings, subject to the approbation of the commis- 
sioners; and may contain all other provisions necessary 
for carrying the commutation into effect, so that they 
do not interfere with the powers given by the act (sect. 
28) for apportioning the rent-charge aooordii^ to the 
particular circumsiiances of each tenement, and for the 
relief of. tenants for life, and other persona having li- 
mited interests. (Sect. 14). 

CimfiniuAvm, of the ApreemeiU.'h-AB soon as the 
agreement has lieen executed by the requisite parties, 
it is to be sent to the commissioners, who are to institute 
an inquiry for the purpose of satisfying themselves that 
it ought to be confirmed ; and if they are satisfied that 
it ought to be confirmed, the commissioners are to con- 
firm the agreement bv signing and sealing it, adding the 
date of the confirmation, and are to publish the fiict and 
date of the confirmation within the manor. (Sect. 23). 

Until the agxtement Is thus confirmed it is in nowise 



binding. The commissioners are copsequently invested 
with a veto on every agreement. It wul, therefore, be 
advisable for the parties to communicate unreservedly 
with the commissioners, for the purpose of insuring 
their concurrence, before much expense is incurred in 
the preliminary proceedings. 

After the agreement is thus confirmed, it will be 
binding, not merely on the parties who have ngned it, 
but on all persons interested in the manor and lands 
included in the commutation, nor will be liable to be 
invalidated by any question as to the sufficiency of 
the number or interest of the parties. (Sect. 23). 

Appointment of Valuers.'] — The statute (sect. 24) di- 
rects the appointment of valuers, who are to make the 
valuations, apportionments, and schedules required for 
carrying the agreement into effect. The valuers mav 
be appointed at the original meeting, or at some ad- 
journed meeting, either before or after the confirmation 
of the agreement; but the appointment will not be 
valid, unless the agreement has been or shall be exe- 
cuted by the sufficient parties. If the amount of the 
rent-charge is fixed by the agreement, the valuers are 
to be appointed by the tenants in the mode prescribed 
by the ^th section. But if the amount or the rent- 
charge is subject to increase or diminution by the va- 
luers, or be left to be determined by them, they are to 
be appointed, half of them by the lord, and the other 
half by the tenants. It is observed by Mr. White, in 
his useful edition of the act, that ** there does not ap- 
pear to be any special provision for appointing vtduers, 
m cases where the consideration for tne commutation 
is a fine alone, under the 16th section; nor do any du- 
ties seem to be assigned to them in this respect, except 
as to the determination of the amount of increase or 
diminution of the fine, when left to them. But, as the 
commissioners are required to set out the amount of 
such fines in their schedule of apportiomnent, the costs 
of necessary proceedings for carrying out the provisions 
of the 15tn clause would either be matter of separate 
agreement between the parties and the valuers, or re- 
main for adjustment by the commissioners^ under the 
44th clause." 

When an even number of valuers are appointed, the 
commissioners may appoint an umpire between them. 
(Sect. 25). And n, after six months from the confirm- 
ation of the agreement, no valuers shall have been ap- 
pointed, or their valuations, &c., shall not have been 
made, or in case of the death or incapacity of a valuer 
appointed, the commissioners are empowered to appoint 
valuers. (Sect. 38). 

Powers and Duties tyf Valuers,'} — The valuers cannot 
act till they have made and subscribed the declaration 
prescribed by the 26th section. And after tiie confirm- 
ation of the agreement, but before they enter upon the 
performance of their duties, they are to apply to the 
commissioners for instructions, (^ect. 25). n^hen they 
have received their instructions, they are to proceed to 
make such valuations, &c., as the commissioners shall 
require, for which purpose the valuers are empowered, 
on producing an authority from the commissdoners or an 
assistant commissioner, to enter into and inspect any of 
the lands included in the commutation ; and to require 
the steward of the manor to furnish a statement in writ- 
ing, in the form directed by the commissioners, of the 
particulars relative to the manor, described in sect. 27. 

Valuations and Apportionments^] — ^Afber these preli- 
minary investigations, the valuers are to proceed to de- 
termine the increase or diminution, within the pre- 
scribed limit, of the rent-chai^e or fine, or to fix the 
amount of the rent-charge, where, by the terms of the 
agreement, those matters are left to their determina- 
tion; and then to apportion the rent-charge amongst 
the several tenants, where the apportionment is not 
made by the agreement itself; and m so doing, the va- 
luers are to tbke into considenitionj and make due al- 1 

lowances for the particular circumstances of the land 
included in the commutation, and of the sevend tene- 
ments, so &r as they may, consistently with the terms 
of the agreement and the instractions of the commift- 
sioners. (Sect. 28). 

The valuers are also to stato the amount of the fine, 
not . exceeding 1^^ to be payable in leqieet of eadi .tene- 
ment ; and, u so mstructod by the commi^noQen^ they 
are to make an apportionment of ^e costs of the pro- 
ceedingSy subject to the approbation of the compussion- 
ers. (Sect. 38). 

The valuers are to send their valuaUons^ &c., when 
completed, to the commissioners, who are to cause a 
copy of them to be deposited in the bands of the stew- 
ard, and notiice to be ^ven of their being so deposited, 
for the ins^tion, without fee, of the persons interr 
ested; and m the same notice, a place and time, not 
earlier than twenty-one days afber> is to be ^j^ointed 
for holding a meeting for hearing and detenniijung ob- 
jections to the valuation. (Sect. 29). 

Notices of objectiozv by the lord are V> be fpyen to 
the commissioners, at their office, and b^ any other 
party, to the steward, at the place of deposit; but, un- 
less upon cau^ shewn to the satis&ction of tlie com^ 
missioners, they muat be g^ven at least ten days before 
the day of meeting. Forms of such notices will h9 
supplied by the commissioners, through the steward^ who 
is to annex the notices to the copies of t)ie valuations^ 
and make a note of the objection on the copy \o which 
H relates, and allow inspection of such notices. (S» 2fi). 

Before the meeting, the steward is to deliver the co- 
pies and notices to the commissioners, or the assistant 
commissioner deputed to hold the meeting, who is^ at 
such meeting, authorized to hear and detemine Uie ob- 
jections, and adjourn the hearing, if necessary, and 
.direct further valuations, &c., to be made. (Sect. 29). 

When the objections have been heard and deter- 
mined, the schedules are to be amended accordingly; 
and, at any time before the final settlement of the ap- 
portionment, the commissioners are emppwered to make 
such amendments in the schedules as snail be rendened 
necessary bv events that have happened, or the lapse 
of time m the interval. (Sect. 29). 

The commissioners are empowered to hear o^d deter- 
mine suite and differences respecting manorial rights^ 
(except rights to mines), twenty days' notice of the 
intenuon so to proceed being given to the parties in- 
terested, and on whom their decision shall be bindings 
isect. 39), subject to an appeal to a court of law by 
eigned issue, or on a case stated, in any case where the 
yearly value in question exceeds 20/. (Sect. ^)* The 
commissioners ore also clothed with ample powers for 
requiring the attendance of witnesses, examining tb«m 
on oath, and calling for the production of papers and 
other documented (Sect. 43). 

Schedule of ApportionmeiU.]—A^W the valnatuuDS 
and apportionmente of the valuers have undeigone this 
examination and correction, the commissioners are to 
proceed to frame from them their own ** schedule of 
apportionment." (Sect. 31). In this document, whidi 
forms the final adjustment of the commutetion, Are le* 
quired to be inserted the following particulars:^- 

1. The name, description, and quantity of the Jand^ 
included in the commutation. 

2. The names and description of the proprietors. 

3. The names and descriptions of the occupiers. 

4. The amount of the rent-chaiges apportioned on 
the several lands, and Hie periods when tney are pay*- 
able, and the nominal fine reserved in respect of each 
tenement ; or the amount of the fine on death or aliena- 
tion, where that is the form of tlie oonaidemtion for the 

5. The person to whom, and under what title, iho 
pQyufOBvs are to oe ZBane. 

0. Other «rAen and 4tr«eti<nu in currying ihe com'< 



mniaikii into effect, which will include directions for 
defenu^ Hie commencement of the rent-ehargesy or for 
tiielr increaao or diminution in certain erents set forth 
in ike achedale. (Sect 97). 

Am soon as the schedule of apportionment is made, a 
papy ef it is to be deposited with the steward in some 
i IB or near the manor, when it will remain for in- 
L by parties intorested, for such a length of tine 
the cioinmiwionini shall direct. Daring this time 
of cnran in the schedule may be sent to the 
stswand; and, at the end of the time, he is to return it 
to the ooiMnlwrfonew, together with such notices as he 
disfl hare received, and a statement of any errors he 
may hvre discovered. The commissioners are then to 
in^inre into the alleged errors and rectify them, if 
necasBBxy. (Sect. 32). 

Bsfbie the commisdoners proceed to ratify a commu- 
te^iQiiy vti in any Biag^ of the proceedings between the 
agnbas ef ihe sigreeme^t and uxe final confirmation of 
aeirlsdule of ajyortiooment^ the eommisaoaeis may 
Jicyiit aoti^o to be given to penona ioteroBted in xe- 
asadsr, nvwsioii, and ezpeotanoy, and hear and de- 
twmina o^eotiMis to the terms of the oommiitati<m on 
Hatjmi of snch peisona. (Sect. 94). 

ftiesehediile, being now considered complete, is to be 
e og roaaed, and the commistioners are to annex to it any 
docaaioits or maps requisite for its elucidation. They 
nffl tiken confirm the schedule of apportionment, by 
m^BSig and aeaiixig it, and adding the date of the con- 
§m&u. (Soot. p2). 

Iha commutation is thus brought to a conclusion. 
JBvtofvn after the confirmation, the commissionerB have 
itiU (ho poirer of oonocting any manifest error in it, 
with the oonaont of all parties whose intensts are 
^belad. (Soot 85). 

Two oopiea of nie confirmed schedule of apportion- 
ttWtOBd doooments annexed, fire to be made under the 
sedsfHie conuniBaioneTs; and one copy deposited and 
Irepl wkh the court rolls of the manor, and the other in 
the hands of the clerk of the peace : and notification of 
thdr bea^ so d^sited Ib to be given by advertisement, 
or otherwiaoy as toe commissioners shall direct. (S. 35). 

The zeponbed inquiries and deliberate investigation 
for whkh. iho preoraing process so well provides, is cal- 
cwlaM to iooBre, that no party, whoae interests may 
be affected, ^lall be taken oy surprise, or be deprived 
<^the opporinnitv of canvassing tne terms of the com- 
mutation; that duo regard shall be paid to existing 
rights and expectssit interests, and tnat the peculiar 
^inMaataBoo cSfeaeh individual case be carefully and at- 
tentively considered. But it may be possible, in many 
esses, eren where the commutation extends over a 
wbdo manor, to s&ve mw^ of the expense, time, and 
^roid»le reqwed to complete this mode of commutation. 
B^ hideed, not more than three-fourths of the tenants 
in nmnbcar and value can anee upon the terms of the 
coamutation^ the oourse ofproceedinff or^inating in a 
aMnwial neeting, and passing through the steps above 
jfMTJhfd^ Affords the only means of accomplishing the 

Buty if all the tenants of a manor are unani 
JMa% ibe tranaaotion will then assume the form of a 
volowtaiy cQBunutaftion^ which requires no previous 
JBaetiag to give it validity. And, as suggested by the 
ooauBiaBioiiera in their instructions, if, in snch a case, 
all the tenants^ having settled with the lord die entire 
coMid cratkm to be given to him, can arranre among 
tbemselvea, or can trust a valuer to fix for tnem, the 
portions to be contributed by each, they may embody 
the distiibution of the gross sum in a schedule of ap- 
pottioament tiiat may be annexed to and form part of 
their agreement; and it will be unnecessary to gOi 
I sdl the processes of investigation provided &r 
mmants, in the case of manorial (or com- 
ir)Mnswtitioiif. B.

LONDON, JANUARY 29, 1842. 

h u mfSL known to be now a settled doctrine, that, as 
WtvMB incnmbiBncers or purchasers of an equitable 
nlsMtiA peraonalty, priority belongs to that one who 
fat gifnnotioe to the person in wliom the kgal title 
is nM; ihnm, if A., being entitled as oestni que trust 
tot fife inl arort in a personal fund, mortgages or sells 
Ub hitswit to B., who gives no notice to the trustees, 
nd aftenm^a mortgages or sells it to C, without no- 
tice ef B,'8 dt3Cge, and C, does gire notice to the tms- 
kii^ C wDI hsYe priority OTer B. (Dearie v. Hail, 3 
Bam 1; Lsmrid^ v. Coopery 3 Russ. 30, and sererml 

Bat in Joises r. JoneSy (8 Sim. 683), it was decided, 
^ the doetrine in Dearie v. Hall has no application 
to the mm of aereiBl mortgagees of real estate ; and 
tkd, if tl«re bo a mortg^ of real estate to A.; then a 

I ta Bby who gives no notice of his mortgage to A., 
vd a thM to C, wh« does give notice of his mortgage 
to Ai, C iton not be prderred to the second mortg^;ee*. 
Wf hive understood, that this decirion has been 
ipilMlibgraome eminent oonvayancers; and thatoppo- 
iti«|WoBB en the point have been given. It is said, 
^hlisr principle of the decisions is as applicable to 
<MBl «f iMlty as of personalty ; that, as between merely 
^tiUs incumbzaiacers, he who obtains the nearest ap- 
fnmh to « daim on the legal estate — ^he who takes the 
iMit paina to prevent a fraud being practised on subse- 
4Wt Ineamhrancers^ has a better equity than one 
poor In point of time, who has not taken any such pre- 
cfnUjooa; and that there is no distinction between the 
titieto bud and the title to personalty, which has the 
^^km ef destroying the application of this equitable 
dodifeK to realty. 

We believe, Janes v. Jones is the first and only case 
in which the point in question has, been directly deter- 
mined. But it appears to us, that thedistinction taken 
in it is not only in accordance with the earlier indirect 
authorities and dicta, (BeckdtV. Cordl^y I Bro. C. C. 
353; Ex parte Cktwthomey 1 GL & J. 240; Martinez v. 
Coopery 2 Russ. 214), which lay down as a general pro- 
position, that, as betweoi eouitable incumbrancers on 
real estate, priority in point of time alone gives priority 
in equity, imd that, to rebut that equity, tnere must be 
something like fraud ; — ^but that it is warranted by the 
very cases which are supposed to be in hostility to it. 

U is to be observed, that the decisiona in Dearie v. 
Hally and Loteridge v. Coopery do not affect to proceed 
on the ground of an equity in the subseauent mcum- 
brancer, arising out of his prevention or fraud u^on 
subsequent purchasers, but on the ground of his having 
done more to perfect YA&tUh. '*The plaintiffs say, 
says Sir J. Leach in Dearie v. Hally " that they were 
not bound to give notice to the trustees ; for that, notice 
does not form part of the necessai^ conveyance of an 
equitable interest. I admit, that, if you mean to re\y 
on the contract with the individual, you do not need to 
give notice : from the moment of the conti^t he, 
with whom yon are dealing, is personally bound ; but, 
if you mean to go fiurther, and to make vour right attoiA 
upon the thing which is the subject of the eemltrmety it is 
necessary to give notice ; and, unless notice is given, you 
do not do that which is essential in all cases of transfer 
of personal property.''— And citing a case of Rjfdll v. 

* la/eiNv T. Jemest as tiie facts are stated, the mortgagor 
bHi Ml eqaitite estate only in part of the premiaca, and had 
the le|d estate in respect of otl^r part. Whether this drcum- 
itaMs sdfcds the decmou, may deserve consideratioo. 
i^oi.VI. C 

^ (1 Ves. sen. 348), in which the Judges held, 
that, in tne case of a chose in action, you must do every 
thinff towards having possession that the subject admits, 
his Honor went on to lay down^ that, as regards an 
equitable interest in personalty, notice is necessary to 
perfect the title — to give a complete risht in rem, and 
not merely a right as against him who conveys his 

And in Loeeridgey. Coopety on appeal. before Lord 
Lyndhurst, C, the observation of his Lordship was, 
that, " in cases like the present, (that is, cases ox equi- 
table interests in personalty \ the act of giving the trus- 
tee notice is, in a cert«n degree, taking possession of 



the fund : it is going as far towards equitable ownership 
aa it is possible to go ; for, after notice given, the trustee 
of the fund becomes a trustee for the assignee^ who gives 
him notice." 

The principle, then^ of these decisions, proceeds on the 
ground, that, as possession in respect or personalty de- 
termines the apparent ownership, and as notice to the le- 
gal owner is the nearest, and indeed, only approximation 
which the equitable incumbrancer can make towards 
^ssession, such notice shall have the effect of giving 
him A quasi possesion. And it goes no farther than 
this, that notice to the legal owner is a necessary act in 
the purohttser of the eouiUble interest, where such no- 
tice nas the effect of aading something to his title. 

But if these cases are to be applied to mortgages of 
real estate, the question is, what is. the effect of notice 
on the title? Is giving notice doing every thing towards 
obtaining the l^al title that the subject admits? Has 
it, in fact^ any effect whatever upon the title? That it 

' has none, is decided, as it appears to us, by the case of 
Peacock v. jBiirf, (13 Law Joum. 36), referred to by his 
Honor the Vice-chancellor in Jones v. Jona. There, 
ihm aeeond mortgagee of real estate had given notice of 
his mortgitte to the first mortgagee ; and the third ( with- 

' out notice) paid off the first, and took a conveyance of 
the leffal estate from him ; and the Master of the Rolls 
held, uiat the third mortgagee should have priority over 
the second. In other wonls, that the notice given by the 
second was valueless. That his Honor treated the no- 
tice in that light, appears from what fell from him in 
Jiis judgment. '* It is clear, in fiict," said his Honor, 
** that, to give a third mortgagee, who has obtained the 
legal estate, a priority over the second, nothing further 

is necessaxT than to nave advanced his money without 
Botiee of tlM second mortgage; and this priority may 
be obtained, even during the pendency oi a suit ; for 
the equities of the two parties being equal, this court 
refuses to interfere; not oecause one has a better, but 
because they have equal rights :" an expression clearly 
fnoonsistent with the supposition that notice had any 
effect on the titie ; for, if it had, then the two mortga- 
gees would not have had eaual rights. 

There is another point oi view in which the question 
xnay be considered, to shew that in the case of mort- 
gBffe of real estate, notice has no effect upon the title ; 
and that is, that it will not prevent the first mortgagee, 
not only from being at liberty, but from being Sound 

' to re-convey and return the title deeds to the mortga- 
gor; for it has been decided, that, if there be first and 
second mortgagees, and the second has given notice of 
his incumbrance to the first, yet, if the mortgagor ten- 
ders payment to the first mortoagee, he can demand the 
delivery of the title deeds. Dtxcn v. Wigram^ (2 C. & 
J. 613). That case was an application under the 7 
Geo. 2, c. 20, for stay of proceedings by a first mort- 

' gf^ee. and to compel re-conveyance and delivery of 
the title deeds, on the mortgagor bringing the mort- 
gage money and interest into court. And for the mort- 
cagee, one of the grounds of opposition was, that he 
haa received notice from a second mortgagee of his in- 
cumbrance ; but the court held, that the first mortga- 
gee must re-convey and deliver up the title deeds, as 
the second would be in no danger, because several modes 
might be adopted for his protection against a subsequent 
Incumbrancer. This case proves that the notice does not 
give to the second mortgagee any claim or right whatever 
Over the le^ estate. In other words, it leaves his title 
exactly as it was before; whereas, in the cases referred 
to upon equitable estates in personalty, the very essence 
of the decision is, that the notice converts the trustee 
of the fund into a trustee for the assignee who gives 
him notice ; and it seems to follow, that it would be a 
breach of trust in the trustee to hand over the fund to 
the mortgagor, unless with the acquiescence ot dirtetion 
ef thfe mor^ttjee giving ftotice. 



Sir, — So far as my information enables me to judge, 
I should have thought that it had been agreed alike by 
conveyancing counsel, and by the h^her class of soli> 
citors, that Conditions of Sale, restrictive of the ordinary 
rights of purchasers, have, of late years, been carried 
to an unreasonable and mischievous extent. I was, 
therefore, surprised by the tone of the remarks in Tse 
Jurist, of the 15th instant, upon a late resolution of 
the Committee of the BirmiDgham Law Society. Those 
resolutions may not state the case Very happily, or base 
the opposition of the committee upon good grounds, 
but they point plainly enough at an existing evU, and 
have a tendency to abate it; and, at all events, may be 
made a text for useful comment. Since a good title, 
sufficientiy proved, does not require the aid of special 
conditions, it would seem to be sufficientiy obvious, 
that every restrictive condition is, pro tanto, the admis- 
sion of a defect, and, therefore, objectionable on the 
part of the vendor as well as of the purchaser; yet It is 
notorioufliy now common for soliciton (more partiea- 
larly in the country) to ofier all property, indiscrimin- 
ately, for sale by auction, under conditions extremely 
prejudicial to a purchaser, and, in numerous cases, not 
called for by the circumstances of the titles; and surely 
they do not then do the utmost that can honestly be 
done for the interest of their clients. Such conditions 
daily injure opposite parties: first, the vendors, by re- 
pelling trustees, and such penons as are cautious enough 
to consult their profesaional advisers bdfora purchasing 
at an auction ; and next, the numerous purchasers, who 
reasonabfy assuming that they are to have a sufiioient 
title, make their purchases upon a fair estimate of 
value, without deduction for extraordinary expenses 
to which they may be subjected, or for the ristc of a 
bad titie. In the most favourable case, the vendor and 
purchaaer do not stand upon even ground, when special 
oondltions are resorted to ; for the vendor knows ex- 
actiy the way in which they vrill onerate^ while the 
purchaser is necessarily ignorant of tnis; and, if con- 
teious of his risk, must insure against it by a reduction 
in the price which he would otherwise give. Not only 
honesty, but a vendor's interest, thersfo««, requires that 
a purchaser should be pretty distinotiy apprised «f ike 
risk which he must bear, and of the extraordinary ex- 
pense which he may be put to ; in other worda^ special 
conditions, to be really beneficial, should be always 
framed with reference to the particular title in qusfi- 
tion, and should inform the purchaser of its ffenend 
state. Thus qualified, such conaitioDs afford all the pr|»- 
tcction that can jEairly be desired by a vmdor^ aad will 
really benefit him; while they cease to he (^eetionable 
on the part of the purchaser. And conditions thus 
framed would probably meet the views of the Birming- 
ham Committee, who, I would fain hope, were not ac- 
tuated by merely selfish motives in finuning their re- 

The objection to unnecessary ConditiotM of Sale is 
increased by the existing doubt, whether their adop- 
tion by trustees for sale, (includins^ of course mortgagees, 
with a power of sale ), is not sucn a breach of trust as 
renders a contract for sale under them void In equity. 
And it may not be useless to your country readers to 
add, (what you are, doubtless, aware of), that severftl 
of the most distingubhed conveyancing counsel act noon 
this doubt, so far as to reject at once titles submitted to 
them by purchasers under such contracts. I am, &c 
A Conveyancer of Fiptebit Years* standing. 

London, 19th January, 1842. 

Our correspondent has discussed this question as it 
ought to be discusBcd, with reference to the interwts 
and convenience of vendors and purchaseiSi and not with 



\ to wImUmt the bnaineaB of lawyers would be 
gweter or leas by the adoption of a difleient pnctioe. We 
do noi^ howBTKr, alter our opinion as to the expediency 
of kaTing the dasa of buyers and sellers of estates to 
nan^ge their own affiilrs according to their own disere- 
laoD, joailike any other class of buyers and sellers. There 
caa be DO doabt, as our correspondent suggests^ that every 
lestrietiTO condition of sale is an admission of a defect 
jto tanto; that is^ ci either a defect of title, or a diffi- 
culty in procnring evidence on particular points. Nor 
can then be much doubt, that the result is to dLminish 
tosone extent the price that the buyer gives. The 
eoDipact between the buyer and seUer is, in efiect, this: 
that the seller finds it convenient not to be called upon 
to €rttatlfah hy proof every point of title, which, in the 
abseacs of apeeial compact, the purchaser would be en- 
titled is call for; and the purchaser, as our correspond- 
eat obaenrea, insures against his '*risk" by giving less 
flwosj. Where ia the evil of such a compact? and what 
is it» in effect, but an agreement between parties, in 
dealing together, to submit to the evil of, respectively, 
waiviiig some advantages, for the purpose of avoiding 
tbat which, in their calculation, would be a greater evil, 
viz. a aoit for specific performance. Whether such a cal- 
coiitioa be correct or not, we do not pretend to judge; 
we are content to suppose, that, as a body, the sellers 
and pmcfaaaen of land, like the sellers and purchasers of 
cotton or iron, or of any other commodity, know their 
ewn intoeaCa best; and we hold, that the functions of 
the lawyer are not to advise traders as to what are 
tbnr true interests as traders, but to advise them how, 
lc^y,to cany into effect those arrangements, which 
they, in their own judgment, think most for their in- 
UfoL We perfectly i^gree with our correqx>ndent, 
that mneh mischief may arise from the adoption, by 
saliction^ of a general form for conditions of sale; and 
that apodal conditions of sale should always be finmed 
with lefierence to the particular title. But to forward 
this object, the resolution of the Birmingham Commit- 
tee needed not to have been quite so ambitious aa it was. 
A resoliition, that it is the duty of solicitors to appl^ 
l^eat doll and care in the nrepantion of special condi- 
tionB of sale, would have been sufficient; and though 
we do not see, that, for the promulgation of so simple a 
truth, it was necessary to call into action the powerful 
nadunefy of a Law Institution, and the dellDerations 
of a committee, yet, if the members of the Birmingham 
Conndttee had confined themselves to some such novel 
doetiiae, their labours would at least have escaped 
oonoxe, if they had not deserved commendation.

In the courts of common law, where the validity of a 
will only comes in question incidentally on tnals of 
the title to real property, or on the occasion f if an issue 
devisavit vel non, tne Statute for the Amendment of 
the Laws with respect to Wills does not appear from 
the reports to have yet become the subject of judicial 
interpretation. But the Ecclesiastical Courts, engwed 
in the constant examination of a multiplicity of wuls, 
many of them of the most informal and irreffular de- 
scription, have, necessarily, been led to the oonsideratioki 
of tne provinons of that statute ; and, in those oourta, 
as might be expected, we find cases on the construction 
of the Will Act occurring insreat number and variety. 
Some of the decisions of the Courts of Probate on them 
cases differ from the opinions expressed in other de- 
partments of the law, in the course of private practice, 
or in the p<4(es of legal writers, and may, therefore, 
seem not unlikely to furnish materials for future inves- 
tiffation and discussion before the superior tribunals; 
while, on many points, they begin to be of sufficient 
volume and importance to afford grounds for determin- 
ing the prudence of contesting a wUl that may not be 
stnoftly conformable to the letter or spirit of the act. 

The first and moat material Question would seem to 
he^ wkai willt are wikin the oar And the clause of the 
act that professes to determine this poinL has unfortu- 
nately, tnough, as we must think, without adequate 
cause, given rise to much diversity of interpretation. 
The d4ui section enacts, *' that this act shall not ex- 
tend to any will made before the 1st day of January, 
1898; and that every will re-executed or republished, 
or revived by any codicil, shall, for the purposes of thb 
act, be deemed to have been made at the time at which 
the same shall be so re-executed, republished, or re- 
vived." With reference to this enactment. Sir Her- 
bert Jenner, in the case of Hobbi v. KnigUy (1 Curt. 
768), before the Pren^tive Court in 189B, observed: 
'' But for this clause, every will made after the passing 
of the act, namely, the drd July, 1837, in order to be 
valid, must have been executed in the manner pre- 
acribed by the statute; but, by this section, any will 
executed m tiie maqper allowed by the law, previous 
to the passing of the act, would be valid, if made before 
the 1st January of this year; and, it appears to the 
court, that this clause was inserted for. the purpose of 
the flJteration in the law becoming known bmre it 
should come into effect; but the court cannot think 
that the Legislature intended, that wills executed before 
the 1st Jan. 1838, should be subject to the old law for 
an indefinite term, and that they mi^ht be altered, obli- 
terated, or interiined, and still continue to have effect. 
If this were the true interpretation of the statute, what 
would be the effect? Suppose a will executed on the 
day before the act came into operation, that will would 
require neither witness nor signature: the consequence 
would be, that the testator, if he lived sixty years, 
might from time to time alter the will to any extent; 
he might remove the names of legatees and substitute 
others; he might substitute one residuary legatee for 
another, and one 'executor for another, and make an en- 
tirely new disposition of the property without the ne- 
cesnty of having any witnesses, or of any persons being 
privy to the alterations, if these changes and alterations 
were capable of being identified as his act. This is one 
of the inconsistencies that would arise from an extended 
application of the 34th section of the act. Again, the 
18th clause of the statute enacts, that a will shall be 
revoked by the subsequent marriage of the testator ; but 
a will executed before the 1st January. 1838, would not 
be revoked by marriage alone, and would be revoked by 
presumption arising from an alteration in the circum- 
stances of the testator, contrary to the provisions of the 
l»th section. These are consequences so inconsistent 


with tbe professed intention of the Legialatim to place 
all wills m>m a certain date on the same footing, that 
€b« voiirt in «f t>pimon that it a6¥er could have be«i in- 
iended by ihe jJegialatiiTe to leave wills executed prior 
4d 4ha time when the act eame into operati<m, suoject 
to ail Hie considerations of the law as it stood previ- 
ously^ md, therefore, that a move restricted interpre- 
tation must he put upon the words; and the court will 
Iwld, until otherwise advised by the decision of a supe- 
,riar tribunal, that wills executed before the 1st Janu- 
ary, i898» are subject to the provisions of the statute 
1- Vict, c 26, with respect to any act done to them eub- 
jeqnently to that day. 

Aeooraiiig, then, to the opanion here ex]^ ressed by the 
Jeamed judge 4>f the Prerogative Court, wills made pre- 
viously ia the 1st January, 1888, are within the act, 
with zuspect to any acts, not only of republication, but 
jslsa of xearooation, alteration, or obliteration, done to 
thflM «fterthe 31st December, 1887» thoun^ they may 
ant have been xepubliidied subsequently to that day. 
Thw view of the construction* «f the clause has been 
Allowed by the Prerogative Court in sevend subsequent 
•cpam. {Inthe€h)o^ €f lAwA^^komsed^ lOaxi.QQ6; 
J^mkeU V. Jmkmson, 2 Curt. 276; In the Goods af 
Bvwbe^ deeeued. Id. 343). But it differs in a consider- 
'Mn taid imfwrtant degree from that entertamed on the 
siii^eot by some <of the ablest expositors of the statute. 

^ A wOl,'' says Mr. Shdfcwd, ''made before the end 
m£ IfiSTy but tepublidied or revived afterwards, will be 
onlAfiOt to tiie provisions of the new act; but it is an- 
fosehended that such republication or revival can only 
«e effiMsted by an instmment executed in the manner 
Msetibed hy that act." (Law of Wills, 230). And 
Mr. Janoan, in his recently puhLiahed Treatise of Wills, 
TYoL 1, p. 187), observes, that, ^ Where a will made 
iafon is repuhlished by a codicil made on or tince the 
let January, 1838, or by re-execution, in tiie manner 
pBBscilbed by tiie new law, the codicil, or the jre-execu- 
tion, has the efiect of subjecting the will for all pur- 
aoses to the operation of the act.'' And Sir £. Sugden, 
(2 y. & P. 266), remarks, ^ that a will executed before 
1888, 10 within the aot, if duly republished." It wouU 
aeeny, therefooDe, that, in the opinion of these learned au- 
thors^ any other acts relating to th^ will, except republi- 
catian, aid before repubUoition, ace to be treated and 
daalt with acoonding to the old law, and not according to 
the new law. And this mode of interpratalion is move 
«xplieitl V propounded by Mr. Geoi^e Sweet, in his edi- 
tion of the Act, p. 77. — *^ The object of this enactment 
is to tie got at, if at all, by means of a logical proceas of 
xather a refined kind; the meaning seems to be this : if, 
after 18879 && Attempt is made to revive or republish a 
will made before 1838, it is to be considered, for that 
purpoee, as a will within the act ; and if the means are 
sufficient, then the will is for all purposes within the 
act. The object might have been mom dearly attained 
bjT enacting, that, after the Slat of December, 18379 
wUls made before that time shall, for the purposes of 
xepttblication or revival, be within the act; and if re- 
puhlishfcd or revived, then for all purposes." 

K we try this mode of interpretation by the test 
proposed by Sir Herbert Jenner, we think it wiU 
be found to give rise to less ineonmBtencies than are 
Ukely to be occasioned by the construction adopted 
in '^e Prerogative Court ; indeed, scarcely more than 
are inseparable from eveiy legislative change, and ine- 
vitably attend t!ie transition from the old law to the 
jBcw. For, according to the formw mode of interpreta- 
tion, wills in existence at the time when the act came 
into operation remain subject 'to the old law, in ail re- 
apects^ until they are republished : they are within the 
new law as to any act of republication done to ihem : 
and, aftsr they are so repubiished, they become, in ail 
lespeeta, anbject to the new law. But, according to tl>e 
^onstraBtion adopted. in the Prarogative Conrt^ snch^ 

wills, before they are repnUisbed, are ao^ject, ia aome 
respects^ to the new law; hut, in other respeeto, to the 
old law. And it may be difficulty in some instances, 
clearly to mark out the line that is to divide tlxe sab- 
jects of the old law from the subjects of the new. For, 
if the effect of the testator's marriage in revoking such 
wills, is, as Sir Herbert Jenner says, to he determined by 
the new law, it would serai to follow, that the exchange 
of one estate for another, or a re-settlement or other 
conveyance leaving a disjjosable interest in the testator, 
or the death of a devisee in tiul, or of a legatee who is a 
child of the testator, (events or acts occasioning a par- 
tial revocation of the will), are events or atits whose 
effect ought also to fall within the provinoe of the new 
law, and be detemuned by the provisioiis «f the third, 
twenty-third, thirty-eeccmd, and thirty-third sections 
of the act. But can it be intended or conten^lated as 
a consequence of the doctrine of the Ecclesiastical Court, 
that, not merebr the general effect and ojperation of a 
wiU, but the foroe and construction of its particular 
dispodtions, shall thus be regulated, not by the law 
winch obtained at the time when the will was made^ and 
which was in the mind of the person who framed it, but 
by a law since cxeated, and introducing new principles, 
and an altered system of testamentarv jurisurudence? 

The act does not require that the will should be 
dated ; and where a testamentary paper is without a 
•date, recourse nuist he had to extrinsic evidence, to 
shew, whether it was made before or a£ter the q>och 
that separates the new law from the old. (See Jn the 
Goods of Mary Taylor y 6 Jur. 1041 J, But if there be 
nothing to she w^ conclusively, when it was made, it will 
be presumed to have been executed according to the 
law in force at the time when it was made ; and, tbere- 
fore» if it be not confonnable to the new law, hut satis- 
fies the requisition of the old law, it will be presumed 
to have been made before the new law came into force. 
Thus, where a testatrix died in 1839, leaving, amonsst 
other testamentary papers, an unattested c(3idl witn- 
out a date, written on the same paper with a will dated 
in 1830^ and the latest date appearing on asiy of the 
pf^ers was 18379 <u^<l there were no circumstanoes to 
shew or to lead to a supposition that the codicil was 
signed after the 1st January, 1888, it was considered 
that the court was bound to uresume that it was made 
before that time; and, thereiore, was not within tlie 
operation of the new act. ( Pechdl v. Jenhinson. 2 Curt. 

An unattested will, made at .sea by a purser of a 
man of war^ has been held, in the Prerogative Courts 
to be valid, as the will of a seaman at sea, under the 
exception contained in the 11th section of the act, 
whicn provides, " that any soldier, being in actual mi- 
litary service, or any manner or seaman, being at sea, 
may di^ose of his personal estate, as he might have 
done before the making of the act." Some of the rea- 
sons assigned for the exception, (which was not merely 
to protect illiterate perronsj, it was said, applied just as 
well to the commander in chief as to a common seaman ; 
the same sudden emerg^icy might arise to render it 
necessary for the individual to dispose of his property 
by word of mouth in the one case, as in the other; &ii<l 
whilst at sea, the one .might be inops consilii, as well 
as the oth^. Sir Herliert Jenner was, thenfore, of 
opinion, that the term *' mariner or seaman" does not 
exclude any person in her Majestjr's navy, though su- 
perior officers of the ship, being " at sea," from the ex- 
ception contained in the act. (Ht^tes, deceasedy2Cvai» 
338). And, in like manner, the will of a major in tlie 
army, made while in service in India, has been faeM 
to be within the same exception, as the will of a '^sol- 
dier in actual military aervioe." {Inike Goods ef John- 
son, deceased, 2 Curt. 341). And the exception is un- 
derstood to extend to the will of a pesscm m the mili- 
tary service of the £a8t Itidia Cotnpaiiy ; (/i> the Goods 



, 2 Cifft. 988h al0O, to the wfll of a 
verrii^ on hoard a ship, ttiongli on ^ore at the time of 
waking the will. (In the Ooods ofLo^^ 2 Curt. 378). 

The atatnte 1 Vict. c. 26, does not extend to the co- 
lonies, for the colonies are not bound by an act of par- 
Hamenty unleas particularly named. (Anon^ 2 P. W. 
2»1; SSMdtM T. Chodrieh^ 8 Yes. 487). If, therefore, 
the ti all tar have landed property as well im Enelaod aa

tka» ef Netth Anerica, except Lower Canada, (4 Burce 
<X L. 478),^ lie must execute his will, so as to oonpry 
hetii witii late Statate of Frauds and the new act. 

The authorities in the East Indies have, with certdn 
vxeeptions, T^-enacted the Will Act, but such act was 
not to eome into operation till the 1st February, 1839.

OvM,wmkn will hat« obaerred, in the last Number 
«CThb Jubist, (p. 22), a statement by a Gorrespondenty 
thii senial of the most distinguished Conveyancers act 
OB lbs inibty whether trustees for sale, selling under 
mfaietiw conditions, do not commit a breach of trust, 
ssArjtlinjaetatonce titles submitted to them by 
fmekmen vndar such contracts. 

We bdwre our eorrespondent is right In staling, that 
ssme esiMnt Ccmv^yancers have adopted the practice 
of takhig sodi an objection to titles, but on what ground 
ofaathotHyor xeaaoniiig so sweeping and general an 
etgaetioii is to be supported, we do not understand. A 
psiat, of the kind under discussion, arose in a late case, 
(Birfiaw T. Befl^ 2 Beav. 17)9 in which a mortgagee, 
vidi a f9vnt of sale, sold the mortgaged property under 
ipml conditions of sale, one of which was as follows : 

" Re Tandor shall dclirer an abstract of title to the 
pvdMKT, or bis solicitor, within two days of the day 
of nls^ to the etock in question ; and all and every ob* 
JKtka to the title shall be made and communicated in 
WQ^ to the vendor^s solicitor, within twenty-one 
i^ftmr.t]»e d^very of the abstract; and if the same 
Ve isaadrvdidy the v^or shall be at liberty to rescind 
the ooBtaaBi on returning to the purchaser his deposit 
BMoey; but all and every objection to the title, not so 
taken nd oommunicated within such period of twenty- 
Ms days bom. the delivery of the abstract aforesaid, 
Ml he deemed waived; and, in this respect^ time shall 
lis c ei Mi daed the essence of Uie contract." 

Ob an objeetion being taken, that this condition 
«is to depredating as to amount to a breach of trust, 
the court held that it was not so. The case relied upon 
ia support of the objection to the title, in Hcbson v. 
Mm*case of (Mv.iVbe/;(5Madd.4S8). That 
wnacsR, in which the property sold was vested bvthe 
ii f iM lant In trustees for sale, on trust to pay a debt to 
Vol. VL D 

a creditor of the defendant's father; and, snbjeet tiiste* 
to, to pay the proceeds to the defendant. The tnsstesB 
for sale employed, to conduct the sale, a person who was 
the solicitor of the creditor; and although, at the sale, 
the father of the defendant gave notice that the sak^ 
would be impeached by him, and although the auc^ 
tioneer employed had advised, that, for the purpose of 
obtaining a good price, the estate should be sold in lots^ 
yet, notwithstanding the notice, it was sold, under the 
direction of the Solicitox's deik, and in one lot, and that' 
on the suggestion of the creditor and his friends, the 
creditor being the only bidder. The evidence shewed, 
that the only reason for thus pressing on the sale, was, 
that the creditor was anxious that money should be 
raised. On this state of things, the yice-Chancellor held, 
that there had been great improvidence on the part of 
the trustees ; and refused to decree specific performance. 
All that was decided, therefore, in this case, was, that 
the particular dreumstances amounted to a depreda* 
tion, of which, indeed, there could be no doubt; that a 
sale by the agent of trustees for sale, conducted with a 
gross disregard of the interests of the cestuis que trust, 
and an exclusive attention to the wishes of a client of 
the trustees' agent, having an interest adverse to that of 
the trustees, was such a sale as amounted to a breach of 
trust; and that, under such dreumstances, the court 
would not help the purchaser. But the case of Ord v. 
Nod has, obviously, nothing whatever to do with the 
question, whether the mere fact of selling, under re- 
strictive conditions, by trustees, is sudi a depreciatioa 
as to amoont to a neglect of duty on their part Lord 
Langdale's decision in Hobeon rl Bell goes no £uther, 
directly, than to pronounce, that the particular condi- 
tion before him had not such a depredating efleot. The 
inference from his Lordship's decision is, however, that, 
if the condition had been sufficiently depreciating, he 
would have hdd it a defect of title; and ne, therefore, 
reduces the question to one of fact, whether special con« 
ditions of sale are or are not bon& fide depredating? 


NoWy it may be questumed, we ihiiik» whether any 
restrictlye conditions of sale can be shewn to be actually 
and boniL fide prejudicial to the sale. If^ by being pre- 
judicial, is meanty simply, reducing the amount that 
will be offered for the property put up for sale, there 
can be no question, that any materially restrictive con- 
dition of side will have that ^lect. But it should be re- 
collected, that such a reduction of price is merely an 
expression in money of the amount of defect or difficulty 
under which the title labours; and it has simply the 
effect of imposing at once, and by means of the contract, 
C1X the vendor, aome pecuniary loss, instead of leaving 
him to incur it, and probably, to a greater extent, at 
» £ii]t«ie paiiad when the de&ct shall have been dis- 

. Suppose that there is reaUy some defect of title, not, 
of course, going the length of a positive and insurmount- 
aUe blot on it as a holding title, but rendering it more 
or kas uuBarketikhle ; if a vendor puts such a title 
into the n«rket» without special conditions, it is ob- 
viousy that, though he may obtain a purchaser at the 
4dl apparent value of the property, yet, wh^ the titje 
comes to be investigated, he will be eompdled either to 
yelease the purchaser wheUy from his contract, or to 
make an adequate deductiion. 

6u]^»oee, ea. the other head, the speeial conditimi not 
to relate to any aetnal Uoi on the title, but merely to the 
^uealioa who is to hear the eocpenae of fully deducing and 
Terifyiiur such title, as the vendor shews upon the ab- 
stract. This is the point nosed by the resolution of the 
Birmingham Law Society. It is obvious, that such a con- 
dition would never be inserted, except where, from the 
nature of the cadences of title, the expense of deducing 
and verifying the titia, whether arising horn the produc- 
tiomof deedsorofeopiesi^deeds, or &obi the evidence 
strictly xequialte to establish particular facts, would 
cauae an expense excesave in amount. If the vendor 
did not protect himself by restrictive conditions of sale, 
a^painst such expense, he might, it is true, obtain a 
higher nominal price for the property; but, it is quite 
^ dear, that the nrplus, which he would receive with one 
' hand, he would have to pay out with the other. Indeed, 
it might frequentiy happen, that the advance of price 
would fall veiy &r short of the expense to which tiie 
vendor would render himself liable, in the endeavour 
not to damp the sale. Sir Edward Sugden mentions a 
case. In whteh Aa eExpenee of attested copies of deeds, 
whidbi would of oemaa &11 upon the vendor, if Uiere 
were no i^edal stipulation, exceeded 2000/. (1 Vend. 
Ik P. 38). The result of special stipulations^ where 
there is some defect or difficulty attending toe tiUe, 
is probably, in general, a savins to both parties; at 
any rate, it is advantaaeous to tne seller, who gets a 
higmer price than he otherwise would do, because of the 
well-kaown diqiorition of piurchasere rather to under- 
astimate than ovexestimate, in their calculations of 
value, the drawback of a &ture and contingent evU. 
Whatever, therefore, may be ilie effect upon purchasers, 
we cannot conceive a case, if there be any defect of 
title, in which it would be prejudicial to the vendor to 
sell under fecial conditions as regards such defect. 

It seems to us, that, in every imi^^ble case of this 
nature, it is nothing more on the part of the vendor 
than a contract to sell at a less price than the apparent 
value of tiie estate, — the difference beii^ regulated by 
a calculation, which prsctice must render tolerably cer- 
tain and accurate, of the value to the vrador of selling, 
and selliiu: at <mce ; and the loss to the purchaser aris- 
ing out of the contingent danger and expense to which 
he reA4ec» )m9M Uable. 


CHISEMENTS, UNDER THE 4 & 6 Vict. c. 36. 

COotUinued/rom p. 17). 

I. CoMFULBO&T Commutations. 
2. GonsideroHan ofikt CommukUion. 

The equivalent which is to be given to the lord in 
exchange for the commuted rights, may assume either 
of two forms. It ma^ either be an annual sum pay- 
able to him by way of rent-charge on the land, w it 
may be a fine payable to him on the death of the 
tmant, or the uienation of the te n e men t, or at some 
fixed periods which shall be ascertained by the agree- 
ment of the parties. 

RetO-Ckarife*'] — ^We have already seen in what man- 
ner the amount of the entire rent-charge for the whole 
commutation, or the amounts of the i^portioned roit- 
chaiges for the separate lands, are to be fixed either by 
the terms of agreement itself, or by the estimate of the 
valuers; and now the amounts of the separate rent- 
charges ma^ be left subject to an increase or diminu- 
tion, at a given rate, in certain specified events. In the 
latter case the schedule of app<NrtionmaBt, as wdl as the 
agreement, should specify the rate of the increase and 
diminution, and the events on which it is to take place. 
(Sects. 14, 37). 

Where the amount of the apportioned rent-charge 
exceeds 20if ., the annual sum payable to the lord is to 
be valued and variable with the price of com in the 
same manner as the tithe rent-charge. For this pur- 
pose, the amount fixed by the apportionment is to be 
considered as laid out, in equal tlura parts, in the pur- 
chase of wheat, barley, and oats, at the prices men- 
tioned in the act, and ascertained by the average oi the 
seven years next preceding the passing of the act. The 
number of bushels of the several descriptions of corn, 
which might thus be purchased at those prices, will 
constitute the permanent amount of the rent-charee. 
And the annual sum payable to the lord will be the 
value in money of that number of bushels of each kind 
of com at the prices ascertained by the seven years' 
avera^, as published under the Tithe Commntation 
Act, m the January next preceding the time of pay- 
ment. (Sect. 36). 

The rent-charge is to commence in general from the 
1st January next after the confirmation of the appor- 
tionm^it; and the first payment to be made on tiie liA 
July following. (Sect. 36). But the eommencemeai 
may, in certun cases, be deferred by the agreement of 
the parties, or the order of the commissioners. ^ This 
nrovision is especially framed with the intention of 
racilitating the arrangement and obviating objections, 
where a tenant, and, in particular, of copyhdids for 
lives, has already paid his fine on admission, and the 
justice of the case requires, that he should be con- 
sidered as discharged mm the obligations of his tenure, 
till the recurrence of an occasion for the payment of a 
fine. With this view the parties are enabled by the 
terms of the agreement to provide, that the apportioned 
rent-diarge shall not commence till the period of the 
next aet or event <m which the fine or other oonunuted 
rifi^ht would have become due and payable. (Sect. U). 
This provision, indeed, is confined to the ^portion- 
ment m respect of lands, the tenant of which is a party 
to the agreement. But the commissioners have a dis- 
cretionary power of deferring the commencement of the 
rent-charge, in any such case, whether expressly com- 
prised in the agreement or not. (Sect. 23). And in 
order to facilitate the due performance of tnis part of 
the commissioners* duties, the valuers are required to 
state in their schedule of valuation the narticular cases 
calling for the exercise of this power. (Sect. 282. And 
in these cases the entire rent^chaige, bdng at nrst less 
than its full ammint, will be proportionawy increased, 
u^ien the i|p«(Bified pmod arrives. 



The TCnt-chaige is to be considered as charged upon, 
and iaraiiig out of, the particalar lands in respect of 
which it is apportioned ; and is to be payable oy two 
hal^yearlv paymentsy on the Ist July and Ist January, 
to the lord of the manor mentioned m the schedule of 
apportionment. (Sects. 31, S6). 

If the lord has only an estate for life, or other limited 
ioterest in the manor, that circumstance is to be taken 
into consideration for the purpose of determining whe- 
ther the whole, or what portion of the rent-charge is to 
be paid to him, with a due regard to the rights of the 
persons entitled in remainder. (Sect. 28). 

To meet the case of the death of the lord in the 
middle of a half-year, the provisions of tlie act for the 
apportionment of rents, (4 & 5 Will. 4, c. 22), are ex- 
tended to the rent-charges under this act, rendering 
payaUe to his personal representative a proportionable 
part oC the annual sum for so much of the current half- 
year as shall hare then elapsed. (Sect. 50). 

The rent-charge, if paid by the occupier, is to be de- 
dncted ^m his rent in account with his landlord. 
(Sect. 45). If, however, the proposed rent-charge ex- 
ceed the amount of the rent paia by the occupier, the 
kodb may, on his representation to the commissioners, 
be exempted from tne provisions of the act, unless the 
tenant on the court-roll give security for payment satis- 
feeiofy to the occupier and the commissioners. (Sect. 46). 

The rent-charge, if in arreor, is to be recoverable by 
dtoess and entry, and perception of the rents and pro- 
fcis, in the same manner as tne tithe commutation rent- 
chu«. (Sects. 47, 48, 49). 

When the commutation is for a rent-charge, it is to 
be aecompanied by a small fine of a fixed amount, not 
exceeding 5«., which will remain as a badge of the 
tcnnre, and be payable on death or alienation, in re- 
ipeei 1^ each tenement ( Sects, i 4, 28) . 

IteJ}— The commutation may also be in considera- 
tioo of a fine payable in respect of the several lands. 
Its amomt may either be fixed by the original agree- 
Jnen^ or left, subject to increase or diminution by the 
Talaef% after a certain rate. And it is to be valued in 
bodiels of wheat, barley, and oats, in the same manner 
as the rent-chai|;e; and variable according to the prices 
of grain asoertamed by the seven years* average pub- 
liaiwd next preceding the time of payment. (Sects. 

It may be made payable either on the death or alien- 
ation of the tenant, or at some certain periods fixed by 
the agreement. (Sect. 15). And it is to be payable to 
the lord of the manor mentioned in the scheaule of ap- 
portionment. (Sects. 31, 36). 

The lord is to have the same remedies for the, recovery 
of the commntation fiues, as he now possesses by law 
for tlie recovery of fines on death or alienation ; (Sect. 
36); and, in addition, he is empowered to pursue the 
like remedies as are authorized for the recovery of fines 
walile on the admittance of infants, femes covert, and 
Vniate^ under the 11 Geo. 4 & 1 WUl. 4, c. 65, s. 3. 
(Sect 53). 

^ The mode of commutation for a fine is not so exten- 
sively qiplicable, nor is likely to be so frequently adopt- 
ed, as mat of commutation for a rent-charge. But, in the 
ease oi copyholds for lives, to which it is more particu- 
lariy adapted, it would have the advantage of substitut- 
ing a determinate payment that may be provided for 
with certainty, and variable only with tne prices of 
^ricultnral produce, for an arbitrary and fluctuating 
impost that operates most injuriously as a check upon 

The one kind of commutation may be substituted 
for the other by a supplemental agreement ; and the 
payments of either class may be increased, or the one 
mtroduoed in addition to the other, by a supplemental 
omimnti^on of manorial rights not incluaed in the 
Qtiginal commutation. (Sect. 54). 

3. StthjeetoftkeChmmuiatwn. 

The manorial rights, which may be the subject of & 
compulsory commutation, are, as already mentioned^ 
rents, reliefs, and services, except service at the lord's 
court; fines, heriots, and pecuniary compositions for 
heriots; the lord's rights m timber; and, if expressly 
mentioned in the agreement, hb rights in mines and 
minerals. (Sect. 13). 

Any other rights cannot be comprehended in a com- 
pulsory commutation, as such ; but they may be in- 
serted in the commutation, with the consent of all 
persons interested, or may be made the subject of a vo- 
luntary supplemental commutation. (Sect. 82). 

And these rights, which may be the subject of com- 
mutation, may be rights in respect of any lands holden 
of the manor, either by copy of court roll, or by the 
custom of the manor, or in ancient demesne, or subject 
to any manorial rights ; and, whether held in fee, or for 
lives, of for years. (Sect. 102). 

4. Effect of the OommtOatum. 

Tlie effect of the commutation will be, that the lands 
vriVL thenceforth be discharged from the rights above- 
n^entioned — ^the lands either within the whole manor, 
or the particular portion of a manor, when divided by 
the commissioners; and the lands, not only of tenants 
who are parties^ but also of those who are not parties to 
the agreement. And, in lieu of such commuted rights, 
the rent-charge, or the fine, apportioned in respect of 
each tenement, will, in future, oecorae payable. 

The lands will, however, after the commutation, re- 
main parcel of the manor, and continue to be held by 
copy of court roll, and to be conveyed by surrender and 
admittance, or otherwise, as before the commutation. 
(Sect. 79). But they will cease to be subject to cus- 
toms of borough English and gavelkind, or to any other 
customary mode of descent, or to any custom relating 
to dower or freebench, or tenancy by the curtesy; and 
will thenceforward become subject to the laws of de- 
scents, dower, and curtesy, affecting freehold lands; 
saving the custom of gavelkind in Keni; and saving 
also, in the case of curtesy, dower, or freebench, the 
rights of any husband or widow, married before the 
confirmation of the commutation, or of the husband or 
widow of any person who shall be tenant of the manor 
at that time. (lb.) 

5. Expemea of the Commutatum. 

The expenses of the proceedings for effecting the com- 
mutation are to be paid by the tenants, or the tenants 
and the lord of the manor, as the parties shall provide 
in the agreement, subject to the approbaUon of the 
commissioners, (sect. 14), or as the commissioners shall 
direct. (Sect. 65). But if no such provision or direc- 
tion be made, the expenses will be payable, either by 
the tenants done, or by the lord and tenants; and in 
such proportions between them, as Is directed by the 
3(Hh section of the act. 

The valuers, if so instructed by the commissionerB, 
are to apportion the expenses amongst individual par- 
ties. (Sect. 28). And any dispute, as the amount or 
incidence of the expenses, is to be decided by the com- 
missioners, (sects. 30, 65), who are to certify under 
their hands the amount to be paid by any person. And, 
if not paid accordingly, they may be recovered by dis- 
tress, (sect. 65), or, upon iailure of that remedy, by 
action at law against the party liable. (Sect* 66^. 

We have abready seen, that the person admitted on 
tlie court roUs is the tenant who is to be dealt with 
under the act. And, if he be not himself beneficially 
interested, he is empowered to recover, by distress or 
action, against the eouitable owner, any expenses with 
wMch he may be cnaiged, in respect of the lands of 
which he is the legal tenant. fSect. 67). Or. if paid 
by the occupier, they may be deducted from his rent* 




between him and his landlord, in tli« «une manner as 
payments of the rent-chai]^» (Sects. 45, 67). 

Parties having limited interests, either m the copy- 
holds or the manor, who pay the expenses of com- 
mutation, are enabled, with the consent of the commis- 
sioneis, to chai^ the amount on the inheritance. 
(Sects. 68, 69). 


Besides the commutations oompulsoiy on the mino- 
rity of the parties interested, the act prorides also for 
commutations of another kind, which we have distin- 
guished by the denomination of vo/tmtoiy commutations. 
These are voluntary on the part of aU persons uime^ 
diatefy interested, and are binding only on such of them 
as actually become parties to the transaction. But they 
may be effected by parties having only a particular 
estate, or a limited interest, either in the manor or in 
the copyholds; and will be bincHn^ on the persons en- 
titled m remainder or reversion, if notice be given to 
such persons in certain cases where it is required. 
(Sect. 52). 

The agreements for these voluntary commutations 
cannot be entered into, without the consent and sanc- 
tion of the commissioners. (Sect. 62). But no pre- 
liminary meeting of the parties is necessary to their 

With regard to the mode of proeeedif^^ the agree- 
ments for these voluntary commutations^ may, for pur- 
poses of practical convenience, be described as of three 

1. A^eemmOs with a Hnffle Tenant: in whick com, it ia 

obmotu, that no Apportionment m required. 

2. Agreements with two or more Tenants, containing a 

Schedule of Apportionment. 
If any number of the tenants of a manor can agree 
among themselves, not only as to the gross amount to 
be paid to the lord in respect of their aggregate lands, 
but also as to the particular sum to be chaiged on each 
tenement, this appwtionment may be embodied in the 
agreement, or annexed to it, in the form of a schedule; 
and the transaction will thus be completed and brought 
to a oondiision by the agreement itself, without any 
necesdty of resorting to subsequent valuations, appor- 
tionments, or other supplementary proceedings. This 
is, evidently, the most advisable course of proceeding, 
wherever it can be adopted; and that which is particu- 
larly recommended by the commissioners, as preventive 
of the expense, delay, and trouble likely to occur, where 
the apportionment is not included in the agreement, 
but left to be determined bv an ulterior process of in- 
vestigation. And this method may be pursued by all 
the tenants of a manor, where they can agree, as well 
as by any portion of them ; and thus, a general or ma- 
norial commutation be effected in this manner, as well 
as a partial commutation. 

3. Agreements with twelve or more Tenants, not contain^ 

ing a Schedule of AppoirtMinment. 

If as many as twelve persons, oeing tenants, or all the 
tenants of a manor, enter into an agreement with the 
lord for commutation, and the agreement does not in- 
clude an auportionment, the commutation may be com- 
pleted in the following manner: — ^A schedule of appor- 
tionment is to be drawn up by the steward of the 
manor, and sent by him to the commissionerB, and 
passed by them through the same steps of inquiry and 
examination as an apportionment made by valuers, ex- 
cept that the commissioners cannot make any amend- 
ments or alterations in it, but with the consent of the 
parties; and, when completed, it is to be confirmed 
under the seal of the commissioners. (Sect. 62). 

Besides an apportionment of the rent-charge or other 
consideration of the commutation, a voluntary commu- 
tion, like a compulsory one, may include in its t«rm» 
an apportionment of the expeoflss, and a scale of leas to 

be in future ]^yable to the steward, with a due v^gard 
to hb vested interests or just expectationa. (Sect. 62). 

The tiuH^ecit of a voluntary commutation may be not 
only the manorial rights to which a compulaory agree* 
ment extends, but any other rights whatever expresaly 
included in the element. (Sects. 62. 82). 

ITie eomManOium of a voluntary, like that of a com- 
pulsory, commutation, may be either a rent*chaige va- 
riable with the price of com, and accompanied with a 
fine certain, not exceeding hs.; or a fine on death or 
alienation ; and the period of payment may he deferred, 
or the amount made subject to inereaae or dirainationy 
in specified events^ according to the tenoB of the agree- 
ment. (Sect 62). 

Besides an agreement comprising a schedule of apoor- 
tionmmit, and a sehedule of apportionment prepared by 
the stewards, the act provides^ that i}b»form or the in- 
strument by which the commutation is effected, may, 
with the consent of the commissionen^ he either that 
of a conveyance, such as might be employed for the 
purpose if the lord were seised m fee, or that of an 
a^neement entered on the court rolls of the manor, 
with a copy thereof delivered to the tenant. (Sect. 62). 
The two latter forms seem more particularly adi4>ted 
to a commutation by a single tenant, or a small number 
of tenants with common or connected interests. The 
agreement has this advantage over a deed of G<mvey- 
ance, that the former is exempted from stamp duty, as 
also is a schedule of apportionment. (Sect. 93). 

III. Enfranchisements. 

The principal obstacles that have hitherto impeded 
the enfranchisement of copyholds, arise in those cases, 
where either the lord of the manor, or the copyhold 
tenant, has onl^r a partial interest in the manor or the 
copyhold ; for, if the lord be onlv tenant for life, and 
affect to enfranchise, his act will not be binding en 
those entitled to the manor in remainder or reversion. 
In order that he may effect an absolute enfranchise- 
ment, be must be seiaed of the manor in fee, or be in- 
vested with a power to enfranchise reserved to him by 
such an owner in fee-simple. On the other hand, al- 
though an enfranchisement taken by a copy holder who 
has only a particular estate, enures in equity for the 
benefit of the remainder-men, ^et it occasions the in- 
convenience of leaving in his heir-at-law the legal estate 
of inheritance in the freehold; and the incoiiTeoieace 
is aggravated by the want of any determinate standard 
or summary process for adjusting the proportion in 
which the consideration and expenses of the enfranchise- 
ment are to be borne by the seveial snccesscnB in the 

Besides this, it becomes necessary, and is the general 
practice, on a future purchase of the enfranchised estate, 
to investigate, not only the copyhold titie, but also the 
titie to the manor, that the lord may be shewn to have 
had such an estate as enabled him effectually to enfran- 
chise. And this practice is additionally authorized by 
the opinion that prevails, that a copyholder, accepting, 
enfranchisement, brings upon his estate the charges and 
incumbrances affecting the manor. 

The act attempts the removal, or the alleviation, of 
these impediments to voluntary, lor it does not contem- 
plate any compulsory, enfranchisement. For this pni^ 
pose, it contains provisions for enaUing the lord and 
tenant, whatever may be their respective interests^ to 
make and accept enfranchisements, with the coosent 
and under the general control of the commissioners, 
(sect. 66); for the distribution of the oonsidsntion 
paid for enfranchisement, amongst the pereons succes- 
sively interested under the titie to the manor, (Ss.7d^ 
75) ; and for deferring the payment of any portion, or, 
in some cases, of the whole of the prlndpal of the con* 
sideration, where the circumstances of the ct^yhold title 
in justice require it. (Saota. 60«.*a3). (It mmover 



J thai the enfnuichiiwd lands shall be held under 
the oapjhald title, ** and shall not be subject to any es- 
tates liirhtfl^ titles^ interests, or incumbnuiGes affecting 
themMor." (Sect. 64). 

We hftTB said, that the enfranchisements contem- 
plated by the act are altogether voluntary on the nart 
ef the penooa who efiect them. But the methoa of 
woeeediiif^ in the enfranchisement, and the instruments 
W which it is carried into effect, approximate closely to 
those onployed in compulsory commutations, if the en- 
lit in hand is of a certain comprehension and 

For, if the tenants who are parties to an enfrancluse- 
mcnt be less than twelre, not being all the tenants of 
the mBiM»v the enfranchisement is to be effocted by such 
a deed of conveyance as might be adopted for the pur- 
pese, if the lord were seised in fee, (s. 67) ; and sucn an 
metrumtnt would be liable to stamp duty in respect of 
the iatsBest of each tenant. 

fiot, if the tenants who are parties to the enfranchise- 
ment aoMNuit to twelve or more, or, being less than 
twelve, are all the tenants of the manor, the enfran- 
chisement may be effected by a schedule of apportion- 
neat, resembling that used in commutations. This 
scheihile may eiuier be the subject of specific agree- 
meat between the lord or tenants, or, if it be not agreed 
mpga between them, it is to be pxepsml by the steward 
of the manor. (Sect. 66). 

la thia caae, therefore, the instrument of enfranchise- 
Bient will take one or other of the following forms : — 

L An fl^greement embodying, or referring to, an an- 
nextd adiednle of apportionment. 

IL A achedule of apportionment alone, as agreed upon 
by the parties. 

IIL-— L. An agreement for enfiranchieement between 
the lord and tenants, without a schedule. 
2. A schedule of apportionment prepared by 
the steward. 

And, whether an agreement combined with a sche- 
dale, or a schedule alone, it will be exempt from stamp 
dtttf. (Sect. 03). 

'Ae apportionment, on the basu of which the sche- 
dule is feanaed, may be made, either by the parties them- 
selves, in their original agreement, or by valuers, to be 
sppointed by them. In the latter ease, the whole pro- 
eesB of ]nve8l%ation, directed in commutation appor- 
tioomcnts, ia to be followed as fiir as it is applicable. 

Notice of the intended enfranchisement is to be given 
to the persons entitled in remainder or reversion to the 
inheritanee of the manor or copyhold ; and, in case of 
disMnt on the part of such persons, the commissioners 
have the power of withholding their consent. But, if, 
upon finraier inquiry, the commissioners are satisfied 
that there is no sumcient ground of objection to the 
ewfranrbiafrnmit, they may, notwithstanding such dis- 
KDt, aUow the enfranchisement to be completed. (Sect. 
56). It appears, therefore, that enfranchisements under 

the act, wough voluntary on the part of the persons 

immrdiately concerned, may, nevertheless, be compul- 
amy with respect to persons having vested interests in 

( the apportionment of the sums to be paid by 
each tenant, the schedule is to contain statements of 
the periods wdien they are to be paid, either the whole 
or part only, or with interest in the meantime, accord- 
ing to the adjustment of the commissioners; and also 
of the amount of compensation provided for the steward, 
and the proportions in which it is to be paid. (Sect. 66). 

The scheoule, if approved of by the commissioners, 
IS to be confirmed bv tliem under their seal; but they 
cannot make any alterations or amendments in the 
schedule without the consent of the parties. ^Sect. 56). 

A copy of the schedule is to be deposited with ibe 
steward, who ia to indorse on it memoranda of the pay- 

ment of the apportioned sums, which will be a saffi-* 
cient discharge to the parties making the naymeaU 
(Sect. 78}. 

After tne completion of the enfranchisement, either 
by the confirmation of the ^portionment, or the exeou- 
tion of the conveyance, as tne case may be, the lands 
enfranchised will become in all respects of frediold te- 
nure, saving, nevertheless, to the tenant, hb rights of 
common, and so as not to affect any limitations by set- 
tlement or will, to which they may be subject, nor 
any mortgages, which will become mortgages for a eoir* 
responding estate of the freehold, except that the charge 
on the lands for the consideration money is to rank as 
a first mortgage, (Sects. 70, 71* 72), to the priority of 
which the mortgi^ges previously existing wul be sob« 
ject. (Sect. 81). 

We mav observe, in conclusion, that, in proceeding 
either witii a commutation or enfranchisement, a party 
under a legal disability, having no constituted legal re- 
presentative, may act by a person appointed by the 
commissioners. (Sect. 11}. And when either the lord 
or tenant is under a disability, or has only a limited 
interest, it will become the duty of the commissioners 
to protect the interests of the expectant or reversionary 
proprietors; and, in such cases, before confirming the 
commutation or enfranchisement, the commissioners will 
require information, both of the value of the property, 
and the nature of tne incidents to which it is subject; 
and, for that purpose, will require certain returns^ 
(blank forms of which have been issued by the com- 
missioners), to be made to them by the steward and ^ 
regularly appointed valuer. B«

2. Signing at the foot or end. 

A will being written upon two sides of the same 
paper, the testator si^ed his name at the bottom of the 
first side, and his sispature was attested by two wit- 
nesses. That side of the paper ended with an unfin- 
ished sentence, and the will concluded on the second 
side, *' dated this 11th of April, 1838;" but there was 
no signature there. The will was dearlv void, as not 
being ugned ^'at the foot or end thereof, according to 
the requisitions of the 9th section of the act. (/» the 
Goods of Milwardy deceased^ 1 Curt. 912). So, liker 
wise, where the t(»tatrix had signed her name in the 
fnor^'n of the will, probate was refused on motion. (/• 
the Ooods of Judith Wakding^ 5 Jur. 1164). In some 
other cases^ however, the Prerogative Court has ad- 
mitted a laxity of interpretation with re^rd to this re- 
quisite, inimical to the purposes therein proposed by 
tne R^ Property Commissioners, of putting an end to 
imperfect and informsl testamentary papers. For in- 
stance, in a case in the present term, where the will 
was written on the front sides of two sheets of paper, 
and the writing covered the paper close down to the 
end of the second side, so as not to leave room for the 
signature of the testator and the attestation ; and the 
testator signed his name, and the witnesses subscribed 
an attestation, at the bottom of the third side, or back 
of the second sheet ; the will was, nevertheless, admit- 
ted to probate. {In the Goods of Carver^ ante, p. 40). 
In this case, the will was written on a printed paper of 
instructions for making wills conformabl^r to the new 
act ; and the court remarked, that such printed papers 
frequently misled testators. 

la another case, where a will concluded thus: — 
^' Signed, &c., by me, the testator, [IVftotor'f signatureA 
" In the presence of us, [ Witnessed wbscriplions.'} 

" And I hereby appoint A. B. and C. D. executors." — 
the court did not treat the will as void by reason of 
the signature not being at the foot or end ; but consi- 



dered this appointment of executors, written under the 
sienature of the testator,' as not forming part of the 
will, and allowed adnunisti*ation with the will annexed 
to pass to the residuary legatee, without the clause ap- 
pointing the executors, upon their consent. (In the 
Goods of Howelly deceased, 2 Curt. 842; S. P., In the 
Ooods of Warden^ deceased, 2 Curt. 885). Again, 
where a will concluded with the following attestation 
danse, in Uie handwriting of the testatrix: — 

** Siened and sealed as and for the will of me, Eliza- 
beth Woodington, in the presence of us, 

Sir Herbert Jenner obserred : " The deceased, by plac- 
ing her name where it stands, seems to have intended 
that it should answer the purpose of a description, as 
well as of a signature ; and sucn signature being at the 
foot or end of the will, and the will being written by 
the deceased, and acknowledged by her to be her will, 
in the presence of two subscribing witnesses, I think 
this is a sufficient acknowledgment of the signature to 
satisfy the provisions of the statute." {In tM Ooods of 
Woodingtony deceased^ 2 Curt. 824). 


The Stat. 1 Vict. c. 26, s. 9, does not say that the 
name of the testator shall appear at the foot of the will, 
and signing with a mark was considered a sufficient 
signing under the Statute of Frauds, even where the 

r!8on was able to write. ( Toj^lor v. Dening, 8 Nev. 
P. 228; S. C, nom., BaJcer v. Dening, 8 Adol. & 
£11.94). Aoeoiiingly, In the Goods of Bryccy deceased, 
(2 Curt. 825), where the will was signed by a mark, 
without the name of the testatrix appearing in any part 
of the instrument; and , the manner of siraature was 
sufficiently accounted for by affidavit, the testatrix 
being ill at the time, and the paper was identified as 
being the will of the deceased, it was held, that this 
was a sufficient signing within the Will Act. 


The statute allows a will to be signed for the testator 
by another person ; but it does not say that the signa- 
ture must be in the testator's name. And where a tes- 
tator, who was too ill to sign his will, requested another 
person to sign it for him, which he did, not in the name 
of the testator, but in his own name, the court inclined 
to the opinion that this was a sufficient compliance with 
the act. (In the Goods of Clark, deceased, 2 Curt. 829). 
However, the most correct and safest course appears to 
be for the amanuensis to sign the testator's name, with 
a mention in the conclusion of the will, that he did so 
in the presence and bv the direction of the testator. 

In a recent case before the Prerogative Court, it hap- 
pened, that the person who signed the testator's name, 
at his request, was one of the witnesses who attested 
the execution of the instrument. Upon this, Sir Her- 
bert Jenner observed : '* All that the act requires is, 
that the will shall be signed by the testator, or oy some 
person for him, in the presence of two witnesses, who 
shall attest the same ; there is nothing which prevents 
the person making the signature for the testator being 
one of the witnesses to attest and subscribe the will;'' 
and was of opinion, that this was a good execution un- 
der the act. (In the Ooods of Bailey, 1 Curt. 914). We 
must, with all submission, beg leave to question the 
soundness of this decision ; for, as a learned commenta- 
tor upon the act has remarked, (H. Sugden, Law of 
Wills, 38), " it could not be the intention of the legis- 
lature to require the testator to acknowledge the signa- 
ture of his will by another person, to the very person 
who had signed it for him." But there seems to be no 
objection to the amanuensis being a legatee or devisee 
under the will. 


Jt }u|9 sometimes been supposed, that the word '* ac- 

knowledged" refers only to a signature when made for 
the testator by another person; but the opinion re- 
ceived in the Prerogative Court, and most generally 
entertained in other quarters, is, that the acknowledg- 
ment by the testator of his own signature, as well as of 
the signature made by some other person in his pi'e- 
sence and by his direction, is sufficient, if attested as 
required by the act. (In the Goods of R^an, 1 Curt. 
908). So, likewise, in a case already cited, (In the 
Goods of Woodington, ubi sup.), where the testatrix, 
having writt-en the will herself, wrote her name in the 
attestation clause, (which was held to be a sufficient 
signature), and in the presence of the witnesses ac- 
knowledged the will to be her will, and to have heen 
written by her, it was held that this was a sufficient 
acknowledgment of the signature. 

The words, " or acknowledged by the testator," are 
not in the Statute of Frauds; but, according to the 
construction put by the courts upon that part of the 
Statute of Frauds which required the will " to be at- 
tested" by witnesses, it was not necessary for the wit- 
nesses to see the testator actually sign, but it was enough 
if he acknowledged his signature before them ; and in 
some modem cases the courts have gone further still, 
and have held, that any recognition by the testator of 
the instrument as his act, or even a simple request to 
witness it, was sufficient for the purpose. The Will 
Act, on the contrary, expressly enacts, that the signa- 
ture, if not made, should be acknowledged before the 
witnesses ; and, therefore, it would seem, that the acts 
which were accepted as equivalents or substitutes for 
the acknowledgment of signature, imported by con- 
struction only into the Statute of Frauds, can hardly, 
in strict propriety, be admitted to supply the place of 
the form expressly required by the new act. In the 
following case, however, the Preroeative Court seems 
to have applied the rule, furnished by the old cases, 
to a case falling within the present law. 

A testatrix having signed her will, and, on a subse- 
quent day, sent for two persons to attest it ; upon their 
arrival, they said, they were come, as she requested, 
for the puri>08e of siniing their names as witnesses to 
her will, which was then produced, to which the testa- 
trix replied: " I am very glad of it, thank God!" and 
they then subscribed the will. Dr. Addams submitted, 
that this was a virtual acknowledgment of her signature 
by the deceased. The act does not expressly require a 
direct acknowledgment. Suppose a person wrote his 
will on a sheet of paper, and si^ed it, and sent for two 
witnesses, and said: *' there is my will, attest it;" 
would not that be sufficient? Is not the present case, 
in effiect, the same? He cited By thewood's Convey- 
ancing, [qu. Powell on Devises], by Jarman, Vol. 1, 
p. 76 ; and the court being of opmion, that, under the 
circumstances, the signature was sufficiently acknow- 
ledged by the testatrix, under the 9th section of the 
stat. 1 Vict. c. 26, allowed administration with the will 
annexed to pass. (In the Ooods of Warden, deceased, 
2 Curt. 884). 

But this case is quite irreconcilable with another 
before the same couH, hardly distinguishable in its cir- 
cumstances, where the couil did not refer to the rule of 
the old authorities, which we have given our reasons 
for thinking inapplicable, but proceeded simply upon a 
faithful and rigorous observance of the express words 
of the act. In the case we allude to, all the deceased 
did was to request the witnesses to sign their names to 
the paper, without saying that it was a will, or that the 
signature was hers; and it was held, that this was not 
a sufficient compliance with the act. (In the Goods of 
Rawlins, deceased, 2 Curt. 826; S. P. In the Goods of 
Maty Harrison, 6 Jur. 1017).

Sir, — You will greatly obli^ me by publishing in 
joor Ysluable work, theVoIlowing communication. 
Youre, very faithfuiiyy T. Starkib. 

My attention has been drawn to an nncandid and nn- 
feir article in the last number of the Law Magazine, 
which professes to be a criticism on ray forthcoming 
edition of die Iaw of Evidence. It is uneandidf be- 
eause it imputes the omission of many cases, which have 
been published whilst the work has been goin^ through 
the pre9% and which could not be systematically ar- 
ran^td, except by means of an appendix ; advantage is 
thus taken of the publication of part of the work pre- 
vious to the Appendix, for charging the negligent omis- 
»on of eases^ wnieli could not be inserted in the body 
of the woiic. Unfair^ because the writer untruly al- 
lies the omission of several cases which are actually 
coDtained in the work. 

It is very far from my intention to enter into any 
diacusaon with the writer of this article, but, to the 
piofesaon some explanation is due. Owing to the great 
accumulation of authorities and statutes relating to the 
subject, subsequently to the last preceding edition, and 
also to Tsiy own professional engagements, the present 
eifition YnBia been in the press between two ana three 
yeara^ a period much longer than I had anticipated ; 
moAy consequently, numerous authorities published dur- 
ing the printing of the work have necessarily been re- 
served for the Appendix, in which they are already 
arranged under the same heads, in the same order, and 
with constant reference to the ver}*- pages of the original 
text — a course adopted in the second edition. I hope, 
that this course will not be of serious inconvenience to 
any one who may be disposed to consult the book ; and 
trust, that the profession will suspend their judgment 
on the work, until the whole shall have been submitted 
to ibssr conaidenition. 

Imperial parliament. 

Tkunday, Feb. 3. 

Sir T. Frtenumile gave notice of motion, for the 8th instant, 
on behalf of the President of the Board of Trade, for leave to 
briag is a Bill to amend and consolidate the Laws relating to 
tfee Trade of the British Fossesaions in the Colonies. 

Also, on behalf of the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, 
for the 17th instant, for leaye to bring in a Bill for the better 
Phmaoo of eifectaally inspecting all Hoases, licensed by the 
Magiatrates at Sessions, for the Reception of Insane Persons 
in England and Wales. 


(From the Law Magazine) , 
He was a man who hod accumulated a vast extent of 
knowledge; and he had the power of recalling, at a 
momcDif s notice, any portion of his learning which hap- 
nened to be required for immediate use. Few men 
nave possessed the faculty of arguing more strongly, or 
more acutely. He appeared to have peculiar pleasure 
in the thorough investigation of legal doctrines; and, 
by the careful consideration of common and statute law, 
of judicial decisions, and of general reasoning, he was 
continnally aiming at the discovery and establishment 
of clear and definite legal opinions. Few lawyers met 
him in consultation without gaining instruction; or 

* Km tiie Law Magazine is published only at intervals of 
three months, we think that Mr. Starkie is entitled to this op- 
portimity of making an immediate reply to the attack upon his 
work. We shall take an early opportunity of expressing our 
own opinkm on the new edition. 

watched him in the conduct of a oanse, without ad- 
miring the fertility of his mind in snggestine new and 
unexpected ^ints of argument. We may ado, that the 
moral qualities of Mr. Jacob, no less than his intellec- 
tual ability, commanded admiration. He was, of all 
men, the most scrupulous and conscientious in the dis- 
charge of his duty to his client. No prosjpect of emolu- 
ment ever induced him to undertake ousmess which he 
could not transact in his own person ; nor would the 
inconvenience of length of time induce him to forego a 
discussion which he believed to be advantageous to his 
cause. By his amenity of disposition, his uniform Rood 
humour, his careful abstinence from irritating and an- 
gry remarks, his readiness to impart assistance and ad- 
vice, and his universal courtesy to all with whom he 
came in contact, he established, amount the profesmon^ 
such feelings of respect and fnendship as created uni- 
versal regret on his retirement, and the deepest sorrow 
at his melancholy end. He was the person whose early 
promotion to thebench, in one of the courts of equity, haa 
long been desired, not merely by counsel practismg in 
the court, but also by the leading conveyancers. He 
was regarded as, of all men, the most capame of securing 
the doctrines of the law of real property upon a dis- 
tinct and satisfactory basis. He was possessed of a pe- 
culiarly judicial m'ind, able to weigh arguments one 
against another; and, b^ the strength of his memory, 
and the clearness of his intellect, to survey all the cir- 
cumstances of a complicated case, spread forth as in a map 
before him. But, it has pleased Providence to close his 
career at the moment when he was approaching the 
threshold of that office for which he had exhibited pe- 
culiar fitness. Lawyers will mourn over one whom 
they would have addressed with confidence and respect; 
and the country has reason to lament a man of vast at- 
tainment and strict integrity, who, had his life been 
spared, would have rendered great public services in a 
responsible and exalted station.

I5 a ew sow pending before the Lord Chimoellor, 
{Bam§ T. Clo6ury)y a discussion has arisen on the 
^Mtifl^ v]|gi IB inadmissible in eTidenco on the ground 
^^^^ftyi^lt^^ communicaiion. No point in the 
istrfeite HA mndi debated Law of Eridenoe^ offers 
P^ ifltHeades^ <Hr has been the subject of greater 
««iiol«f dsdtton, than this; and it can hardly yet be 
aadtobeastUed. ' 

11)0 gtaatl reaoH of the authorities, at present, 
BKQs to W tbls^ that, as to the parties themselyes, 
vhos thi conzae of proceedings permits them to be 
«oi&pifiid to pre evidence against themselves, they 
ve mapdmMib to dSscloae sueh communications made 
cnfidflByaly to their legal advisers, as have been made 
^vittlMt i dto eote to existing or contemplated liUgation ; 
bot^thit thigrare not compellable to divulge such com- 
"miirstinat^ If made in reference to an existing or con- 
^onplated litigation. And that, as to the counsel, at- 
^Q(>u% or aottdton of the parties, they are not com- 
f^^Uili to divulge matter communicated, or come to 
^Wv^tdlge, in their character of legal advisers, 
^^|Msaide or not in, or in contemplation of, litiga- 
^ (Sis BoUon v. Chrparation of Liverpool, and 
^^ m lu ifkr. Gaahelly 1 My. & K. 88, 98; iVtosv. 
-^^^•*»»«*l Ajlem BaUwa^ Company^ 3 My. & C. 
3K; mnifl. Evid., 8th ed., c. 2, s. 3). 

Si)^ M«L to be the general ndes of the Courts of 
Uw lad Squs^ on thb subject; but, it must be ob- 
M'^ that, in addition to the difficulty arising from 
tn&ft cmffiot of authority, as to whether the privily, 
*s it aiNta ^B s hismes by attomies, is gMieral, or b 
^'""^•i to the dreumstanoes communicated to them in 
vtfetenee to the Boit, there is, in every case, a further 
^*^^^i^^fUkdctsrmining whether the &ctscommuni- 
^^ tnaniMliu^ or the mode in which the knowledge 
tf ue^ Hr ima acquired, are such as to bring the 
Vol. VI. E 

case within the rule, that the knowledge must have 
been acquired by the legal agent strictly in his chaiacter 
of legal agent. 

It is not, however, our present purpose to investigate 
in detail what is the law on this subject, but to examine 
the reason of the law ; and we confess, that to us it seems 
that great doubts may be entertained whether the whole 
foundation of the doctrine is not based on fidae reasoning, 

Mr. Plullipps, in his work on Evidence, (8th edit, 
p. 173), thus states it : — ** Communications made on the 
Mih oi that professional confidence which a client re- 
poses in oounsel, attorney, or solicitor, are not allowed 
to be revealed in a court of justice to the prejudice of 
the client. The expediency of this rule must depend, 
not^ the impropriety of violating the oonfidenoe re- 
posed, but on a consideration, that the o<^tenil ineon- 
venience which would ensue, if no such confidenoe were 
reposed, would preponderate over the direct mischief 
produced by the chance of misdeciaion or fiihne of joa* 
tice resulting from the want of evidence. If, in the 
cases within the operation of the rule, the only confi- 
dence reposed was a confession of guilt or dishonesty, 
the rule would be obviously detrimental to the intaiesta 
of justice; but it is conceived, that, in a multitiide of 
instances, a person possessed of just rights would be 
materially impeded in vindicating them, if dVeiy com- 
munication made to his professional adviser might be 
used against him; if such were the. law, it wcmld be 
necessary, in self-defence, to accompany all communi- 
cations made to a professional adviser with a statement 
of the several circumstances and explanations, which, 
however unnecessary for the purpose of the communi* 
cation, would be requisite to prevent it from, being un« 
fidrly used.'* 

And Lord Brougham, in the great case of BoUen v. 
Oorporaiim ofLiverpoolj (1 My. & K. 88), addredsing 
himself to the aigument, that a partv should be com- 
pelled to produce cases laid by hun before oounsel in 



contemplation qf proqeedings, makes tliefdloid^g ob- 

Bervations: — ^'It mems plain, that the coarse of justice 

must stop, if jsuch ^a n^ht esdsts. Wo wm «riH dave'to 

consult a profesdonal s^viser with a view to his deibne^ 

or to the en&rcement ,of his xights. The very case 

which he lays>before his counsel^ to adrise upqn the 

evidence, jn^jj and often does, contain the whole of his 

evidence ; and may be, and frequently is, lihe hrief wifh '

his advisers should be protected by privily. But if, 
on the contrary^ ihe true -end of a judicial inquiiy is, 
that the Court may learn the facts, and having learned 
them, may administer the law accordingly, then what 
argument of convenienoe to parties can be put in com- 
ttotiimi with the overwiieimiag im|iQFtance of the 
tk>Brt!s being enabled totobtain ^1 knowledge of the 
true facts? And on what principle of justice can a 
rule be approved, the very ee^nce of whicn is to give to 
a paily flie advantage of coming into court In the form 
best calculated to deceits that &>ttrt? 

It is quite clear, that, in so far as the commutiioatioiis

such, thftt, if knom, they would, pio tanto, turn the 
deeinon of the right against hSm, that there is any desire 
to withhold them. The only object, indeed, of ever 
.aommunicatiiig suchcircumstanoes, is to enable the ad- 
viser so to shape his cas^ upon the evidence which he 
puts forward, and so to manage the bringing forward of

6. Attestation. 

The aot xequiBed to be done in the presence ,of the 
witnesses is the signature of the testator. Their si' 
testation and subscription, therefore, would seem ob- 
viously to have reference to "tiiat act, and to be an act 
Which ought to be done eubaequentkjr to ^e oCher, and 
widch wttnld be unmeaning and mtiSaatmi (till iiie 
other is per^DinBed. In a neeent case of vatW asin- 
gular kmdy 'where ^e witnesses signed first, and after 
them the testator. Sir Herbert Jenner refused |)robate 
on motion, and reserved the c|[uestion of the tahdity of 
the w31 for the judicid opinion of l^e court, (fa ^^ 
^GcoA^Oldinf, 6 Int. 1017)\ 

The §th seotion.of rthe act doss «iQt expressly fequire 
tliat the witaesses should subscribe their namasa^i!^^ 
same, time; but the natural constvuctioUfOf the words 
of that clause appears to be, that, when the siraature is 
made or ackno^edged, the witnesses sh^ vim attest 
and aubscribe, not one at one time and one at another. 
^^Aoovdiogly, where a testator aigiuid bis wiU m the 
presence ca one witness only, who subacdbed i^ ^^ 
afterwards, on a subsequent day, acknowledge^ his aij:- 
nature 4n the presence of the same witness who did 
not then subscnbe it, and of another, who did, it was 
doubted whether this was a sufficient compliance with 
the aot^ and probate was refused. (hth^QioSB^Atim^ 
ifmuM?, 2 Cust-a^l). 

In the interpa^tation of th^t part of H^e dtk sec^ioD, 
which requires the witnesses to subscribe "in the pre- 
sence" of the testator, the same principles of construc- 
tion seem likely to be adopted as were established with 
refe r e nce to the same wm^ m. ^e Statute of Erauds. 

« to asna Gfaien«tiins«n ^ oaB^iTvist, i«t.5»p. U)&« 



Thu^ whfiie a wOl was executed by the testator in the 
aune voom where the witnesses were^ and they attested 
the wifi in that room, this was an execution ** in the 
presence" of the witnesses, and an attestation ** in the 
presence" of the testator, although, by reason of the 
cBztains of the bed in which the testator was 1 ving being 
drawn, the witneases could not actually see tne testator 
meot nor the testator actually see the witnesses sign. 
(jKewion T. Clarke, 2 Curt. 320\ On the other hand, 
yrhsK the testator signed in tne presence of two wit- 
Bases, hat they then remoyed into another room, where 
the^ subeciibed thdr names as witnesses, this was held 
anrnTsHdattestatiite. (IntheOoodscfNewmanydeoeeuedf 
1 CurL 914). I^ howeyer, the witnesses, alter they 
witUiew into an adjoining room, were in such a situa- 
tion In that room that the testator might haye seen them 
from the room where he was, the subscription would, 
agreeably to the rule established by Shire9 y. Okucoek. 
and that daaa of authorities, be yalid, though he did 
not aetaally aee them. But it is obsenrable, according 
to the same authorities, that, when the testator mgneo, 
or acknowledged his ngnature, it was considered that 
he oo^t to he actualhr, and not merely constructiyel v, 
present. And, therefore, even if we adhere to the old 
rak of oonstmction, without taking up any more inde- 
pendent ground, the doctrine of constructiye presence 
eaoBflt be properly applied to that part of the 9th sec- 
tion, whicn. requires tne signature, or acknowledgment 
ofibe aignatiire, of the testator, to be ^ in the presence 
of the witnesses." 

The leasona which render it adyisable, (notwithstand- 
ing the proyiaion of the act, that no form of attestation 
is nfrfswry), to insert a written attestation stating the 
esKutial arciimstances of the execution, acquire an ad- 
ditional force from the practice adopted in the Ecde- 
Bsirticai Comts. For, although the will is signed at 
titt foot, and the names of two witnesses subscribed as 
hsnog attested the will, yet, if there be no attestation 
daiiae^ er if the attestation clause do not fully state the 
ohserwee of all the requinte particulars, the Court of 
Probate will require an affidayit to shew that the sta- 
tute was complied with. If it appear from such i^da- 
yit, thoiwh ex parte only, that tne statute was not com- 

eed witia in all respects, the court will refuse probate ; 
t it win not, on motion upon affidavit ex parte, that 
the will was not duly executed, decree .administration 
of the efieete of the deceased, as dead intestate : for that 
the eoort eannot do unless the will is propounded. (In 
Ae €hoda efAyUng, deceoiedy 1 Curt. 913). 

If the formalities were correctiy fulfilled, one of the 
witnfnaefl, or the snryiyin^ witness, will be competent 
le daoae to all the material &cts. In the eyent of the 
dealli of both the witnesses, it is probable that the Court 
ef Plpobale would shape its practice conformably to the 
role prevailing in the superior courts, and admit proof 
of the wit n csKiJt * handwriting as sufficient, upon a con- 
■detatioa of the drcumstances of the case, to warrant 
the eondosiony that the necessary forms were duly 


Iiiterfiiieations and alterations in a will, made after 
its execution, must, by the 21st section of the act, be 
exBCBtsd «Dd attested in the same manner as a will; 
but if the alterations are deposed to by affidavit (in 
which fo4 the witnesses should join) as having been 
made before the execution, probate may pass with the 
ahentions;, as stated in the affidavit. (In the Ooode cf 
Mataom, deeeaeedy 2 Curt. 997; In the Goods of Maria 
ieMk,5 Jur.1041). 

Whse the will itself was made before 1838, it may 
be shewn by evidence on affidavit, and from collateral 
drcuoMlBneea^ that an unattested and undated alteration 
in it waa maoe subeequentiy to the commencement of 
the opwrattim of the new act. (In the Goode of I)yer, 6 

Jur. 1016). And in such case, Tthe alteration being 
invalid, ** except so far as the woras or effect of the wiu 
before such alteration shall not be apparent"), the obli- 
terations and erasures may be carefully examined, with 
glasses if necessary, by persons accustomed to inspect 
writings, in order to ascertain how the will originally 
stood ; and probate sliall pass with the obliterated and 
erased pasaages restored, it they can be made out; but 
if it cannot be discovered what those parts oriffinally 
were, probate must pass with those parte in blank. (In 
the Ooodi of Ibbotaony ubi sup.^. Thus, where there 
appeared in a will a legacy of tAir^ pounds, the word 
** thirty" being written on an erasure, and the alteration 
was not signed and attested, as required by the 21st 
section, and it could not be made out oy inspection what 
the word was over which ** thirty" was written, pro- 
bate was decreed to pass with the Imcy in blank. (In 
the Goods of Rifpen, deeeased, 2 Curt. 334; S.P., In 
the Goods of lAOoeky deceased^ 1 Curt. 906). In this 
case, it was deposed by a party who sawthe will before 
the alteration, that the original word was ** fifty." But 
the court is not at liberty to supply by parol testimony 
what is not apparent on the face of the will itself. So, 
likewise, where the testetor, after the 1st January, 
1898, erased certdn words in a will executed in July, 
1837, and wrote a memorandum, steting what the words 
erased originally were ; but such memorandum was un« 
attested, probate of the will as it orig|inally stood was 
refused, the court consideriiiff that this memorandum 
could be looked at to shew what the words were which 
had been erased. (In the Goods ofBrooke, deosasedy 2 
Curt. 343). There was an appeal from this decision to 
tiie Privy Council, where the point has been aigued, 
but no decision has as yet been given. 


In a case already cited, (Hotbs v. Knighty 1 Curt. 
768), it was made a question, whether the cutting out 
of his agnature by the testetor, the rest of the paper 
remaining entire, amounted to a revocation of the will. 
The 20th section provides, ** that no will or codicil, or 
any part thereof, revoked, otherwise than as 
aforesaid," (that is, by marriaffe under the 18th section) ; 
** or by another wUl, &c.,?. which does not apply to this 
case ; ^' or by the burning, tearing, or otherwise destroy- 
ing the same by the testator, or by tome person in ms 
presence, imd by his direction, and with the intention 
of revolang the,Bame."j Jt was unnecessary to enter 
into the consideration whether the act done in this case 
might not be « comprehended under the import of the 
word ** tearing;" for the court was of opinion, that in 
order to bring the act within the meaning of the words 
^ otherwise destro^g," it is not necessary that the 
material of the voll diould be destroyed; but it is 
suffiiiient if the essence of the instmment, indepen- 
dentiy of ite material, be destroyed : and the court con- 
sidered the name of the testetor to be essential to the 
existence of a will ; and if that name be removed, the 
essential part of the will is removed, and the will is de- 

v In the same case. Sir Herbert Jenner expressed an 
opinion that a similar excision of the names of the at- 
testing witnesses, if done animo revocandi, would amount 
to a revocation; and that an obliteration of the teste- 
tor's signature, in such a manner that it could not be 
made out, might, consistentiy with the 2l8t section, 
have the same effect. 

But the word ^* cancelling," which was in the Stetute 
of Frauds, having been aavisedly omitted in the 20th 
section of the act, the cancellation of the will by strik- 
ing it through with a pen, the names of the testetor and 
the witnesses being lixewise crossed out, but not en- 
tirely obliterated, will not operate as a revocation.

THE juri&t; 

Imperfal parliament. 

Monday, Feb, 7, 

The Atiormtf'GeMral gave notice of motion for leave to 
bring in a Bill to amend and explain the Municipal Corpora- 
tions Aot. By a recent decision of the Court of Queen's Bench, 
it was declared, that, persons holding leases under corpora- 
tions, were not eHgible to sit as town councillprs; and, if they 
did, were liable to a severe penalty. There were, at present, 
no less than 2400 cases of this kind. 

In answer to a question firom Mr. Buller, Sir Robert Pegl 
contradicted the report that has been circulated as to intentions 
on the part of goyemment to alter the constitution of the 
Judicial Committee of the Privy Counsel, and to appoint 
a Presiding Judge to that Court. The Right Honourable 
Gentleman said, that the appointment of two new Equity 
Judges had no direct relation to the Judicial Committee; but, 
by £eir appointment, the anrear of causes in Chanisery had 
been reduced firom 500 to 200) and, it was possible, that the 
Vice- Chancellors might hare, henceforth, more time at their 
disposal, and might take an active part in the proceedings of 
the Judicial Committee. These were reasons for postponing, 
at present, any alteration of the appellate jurisdiction of the 
Judicial Committee. 

Mr. M. Sutton moved for and obtained leave to bring in a 
Bill to explain and continue to the Ist August, 1843, tlw Act 
to amend the Laws relating to Loan Societies. 

Mr. B, Tennant moved, that the House should go into com- 
mittee to take into consideration the Laws affecting the Copy- 
right of Designs for the Ornament of Artides of Manufacture. 
After soms observations on the subject, in whidi Mr. Jf. PAt7- 
lipt and Dr. Bowring took part, leave was given to bring in a 
Bill; and the Bill was afterwards brought in and read a first 
time, and was ordered to be read a second tune on Tuesday, 
the 15th instant. 

The House of Commons has ordered, that the House wiU 
not receive any Petitions for Private Bills after Friday, the 
llthv that no Private Bills be read the first time after the 23rd 
March; and that the House will not receive any Report of 
Private Bills after the 27th May. 

Tue$day^ Feb, 8. 
. Mr. Godson moved for and obtained leave to bring in a Bill 
for better securing the Property in the Copyright of Books. 
His object was to have the Copyrights registered in the Court 
bf Chancery, and to have similar Regbtrations of Mortgages 
and Assignments of Copyrights. At a later period of the 
evening, the Honorable and Learned Gentleman brought in 
his BUI, which was read a first time. 

The Attorney' General obtained leave to bring in his pro- 
posed Bill for amending the 5 & 6 Will. 4, c. 70, (the Muni- 
dpal Corporations Act). 

Also, to bring in a Bill to allow of a Writ of Error, in any 
case of a Judgment of the Court of Queen's Bench on an

If wi» bad been asked what partknlar claas of pio- 

poky £d aoi nqnire, for the secnzitj of the owner or 

tbecaaMBMDee and protection of the public, any kind 

of I mj i rti ii ifm naohinery, we should hare answered, 

thepnfo^ in literary productions. When a book is 

of a kind to which the author wishes to e»- 

I perpetuate his chdm, it bears, almost with- 

eot ea m spt i on, the name of the author, the name of the 

pohlislicr, and the name of the printer. The name of 

theaaftfcor, it is tme^ need not be printed or appear in a 

book ; but, by law, the title of the book, with the name 

and tswdflirnof the publisher, ought to be registered 

with Um SCatkxnen' Company; and so the name and 

fsadcBee of the printer are directed to be printed on 

fhe fni or last leaf of every book printed by him; 

sad this must be done under a heavy penalty*. The 

Isttcr lUtetoiy direction is^ we believe, in practice in- 

vsnaUj ocnnplied with; and if the former, viz. that 

rdstny to registration at Stationers' Hall, is,- as we 

befieve it is, very generally neglected, that only proves 

Voir pnetJcally unnecessary has been found any other 

■Jill flf rqfistration than that which consists of the 

piiMKsaAibltion and issue of a book by the publisher. 

li^ indiSl, a book obtains any reputation, and becomes, 

de heh^m property having v^ue, it is publicly sold, and 

co p i e s caongh are certain to be in existence and easily 

tiaoed; and whether it obtains a sale or not, as copies 

are deposited, of necessity, in certain public libraries, it 

is, i>r all practical purposes, perfectly impossible that 

evidoioe can be lost, of the fact of a given book having 

been put forth as the work of A., printed by B., and 

published by C. 

Thou, with respect to assignments or mortfipEiges of 
cemiaditSk Of course, to the public generally it is 
psfSBctty immaterial who is the actual owner of a copy- 

VouVI# F 

right; the knowledge of that fact can only become 
material to a person who is dealing with the apparent 
owner as a purchaser or mortgagee, or in any way 
in which he has an interest in acquiring a valid and 
unincumbered title in the copyright. Now^ here again, 
.we apprehend, that of all kinds of property, qopyright 
is that in respect to which a purchaser must incur least 
"danger of being deceived as to the title to that on which 
he is advancing his money. Generally speaking, the 
publisher of a work is informed who is the real owner, 
because, if the author has dealt with it, by way either 
of sale or mortgage, the purchaser or mortgagee will, for 
his own protection, have given immediate notice to the 
publisher, that he is the party to whom an account is 
to be rendered. It is true, there may be oases where 
an author or other owner of a copyright would incum- 
ber it, and the incumbrancer might, so long as his in- 
terest was duly paid, not give notice of his incumbrance 
to the publisher; and thus leave it in the power of the 
mortg^r to defraud a second incumbrancer. 

It is obvious, however, that, owing to the very fluctuat- 
ing value of most literary productions, such cases must be 
extremely rare ; because, none but the most careless of 
men would be likely to advance money on the security 
of a literary work, to an amount anydiing approaching 
its apparent value, without previously ffivin^ notice to 
the publisher. And, if there be no application to such 
cases of the equitable doctrine of notice as between se- 
veral incumbrancers, which, we apprehend, there would 
not be, as the first incumbrancer would have the l^gal 
title, a very short and simple enactment would suffice 
for applying a remedy to this defect of the present state 
of the law. 

These remarks have been called forth by the perusal 
of a bill, the promoters of which appear to think that 
the property in copyright demands a more rigid svs- 
tem of registration than any other class of property*.

Ricm ocenrrences, of which puhlic notice has been 
Wkflu la the L^gifilatare, have given some degree of pre- 
■■i fnrtlwl interest to the question, whether one state 
to ddiver up to another persons, who, having 
[ some aet criminal by the laws of the second, 
isve eseqwd thence, and taken refuge in the first. 

Of the law of England, as to the particular question 
arifli^ in the dicumstances to which we allude, there ne- 
ver was^ we apprehend, any doubt ; and if there had been 
any, there could not remain much after the explicit 
^NmoBi which have lately &llen from the highest law 
authorities in the House of Lords. But, on the general 
quesUon, it is not quite so clear what is the law of na- 
tioDi^ and of Ei^land, in so far as the former is included 
within it. Yattel, in the ^ Treatise on the Law of 
KitioDi^" thus states his view : ^< If a criminal escapes, 
and letoms to his own country, justice must be de- 
manded at the hands of his sovereign; and since the

maid ef the sovereign in whose territories the crime has 
been eeauuitted, and delivered up to justice. In states

to ipemk of what is actually practised, by arrangement,

^Dr*Slfli7,icfiBaiog to these paasagea in Yattef, attri*

butes to that author the opinion, that the surrender of 
criminals is a matter of strict international right. It 
is manifest, however, that Vattel is only speaking of 
the case where the act done is equally a crime in both 
the States; and that his opinion is to be taken with 
that qualification, is^ we think, plain from the instances 
that he selects, viz. murder, incendiarism, and theft, 
crimes of which he speaks, and with truth, as equally 
contrary to the laws providing for security in all coun- 

Grotius also speaks of the rule of surrendering cri- 
minals, as obligatory. He says : ** Cum vero non sole- 
ant civitates permittere ut civitas altera armata intra 
fines suos pcens expetende nomine veniat, neque id ex- 
pediat, sequitur, ut civitas apud quam degit qui culpe 
est compertus, alterum facere debeat, aut ut ipsa inter- 
pellata pro merito puniat nocentem, aut ut eum per- 
mittat arbitrio interpellantb. Hoc enim illud est de- 
dere, quod in historiis ssepissim^ occurrit." (Grot, do 
Jure Bel. lib. 2, sect. iv. tom. 2, p. 677). And then he 
goes on to refer to a variety of cases in which persona 
having committed offiences have been delivered up. 
But he concludes with this proviso: ^^Quc omnia 
tamen sic intelligenda sunt, ut non stricte populus aut 
rex ad dedendum teneatur, sed, ut diximus, ad deden* 
dum aut puniendum,** (Id. sect. iv. p. 578; see also 
Burlemaqui's Principles, pt. 4, c. 3, sect. 24). Whence, 
it seems, that Grotius also must have had in view only 
the cases where the act committed is a crime by the 
laws of both countries. Were the doctrine, laid down 
on this point by the two authors cited, not thus limited, 
it woula go the length, in effect, of determining, that a 
Sovereign ought to punish hb subject for an act, for 
which, by law, he cannot properly be punished. 

Voet, on the other hand, citing the practice of the 
Romans, and contrasting it with that ot the nations of 
Christendom, expresses mmself, so as to leave it to be 
inferred, that he treats the practice of surrender as one 
of comity, and not ^ national duty. (Voet do Stat* 
358> and see Story's OnSki of Laws, ^}.

the pnetice iii diitrmgas in that conrt. 

In the exerciae of that power, an Order ^for regulat- 
nig the nnetice of distringas on stock" was issued b; 
the Lm Chancellor, on the 17th of Noyember hist. 
Jar. 1044). 

Aeeording to the directions of this Order, any person 
riaiming to oe interated in stock standing in tne name 
of aaj other person in the books of the Bank of Eng- 
land, may, by his solicitor, prepare a writ of distringas 
in the mm set out in the scneaale to the act, and pre- 
sent it for sealing at the Snbpcena Office. 

When the wnt is presented for sealing, it is to be ac- 
companied by an dndavit b^ the person applying for 
the writ, or his solicitor, which, according to the form 
ueaerihed by a sabsequent Order of the 10th December 
lart, (5 Jur. 1141}, is to state, that the party is bene- 
ficMUy interested m the stock, and speciiy the amonnt 
and description of stock, and the person in whose name 
it is rtanrfmg. But it need not state a belief of any 
dagger ui the stock being dealt with prejudicially to 
t&esaz^s interest. 

The writ 18 to be serred upon the Bank with the 
same kind of notice as was usual with regard to the 
Exchequer writ, and is to hare the same force in re- 
stTMniiy a timuafer, or payment of dividends. But it 
IS not to remain in force, without the order of the 
cow^ for mare than eight days after a request ficom the 
vartj' in whose name the stock is standing, for a trans- 
fer or payment of the dividends. 

The writ may be discharged, as of course, on the 
petition of the party on whose behalf it was issued; or 
en the application, by motion or notice, or by petition, 
doly aemd, of any other person claiming to be inter- 
erted in the stock ; with such costs to be paid by the 
ytyau dying forthe dischaige, as the court shall award. 

*utt Otder also contains other regulations relating to 
tbe fces ad costs. 

The Qnler particularizes only stock transferable at 
ike Baked England, being that with which the prac- 
tioe ctdutrmffoSf in tiie Court of Excheauer, was most 
eommooly 'conversant. But the proceeding by dishin- 
psMy like the proceeding by injunction under the sta- 
tute of the 39 & 40 Geo. 3, is applicable, it is believ- 
ed, to the fonds in the management of the South Sea 
Compani% as well as to those under the control of the 
Bmk. We are not aware that it has ever been at- 
tempted to be employed with regard to interests in the 
8fto^ or share of any other corporate companies. But 
sect. 4 of the 5 Vict. c. fi, invests the Court of Chancery 
with the administration of a summary process, having 
a amilar irarpose, with respect to the stock or shares 
efoi^pabllc company. For it enacts, ^<That on and 
after the said 15th dajr of October, 1841, it shall be 
lawful for the Court ox Chancery, upon the application 
of any party interested, ly motion orpeNiiony tn a turn- 
MSfyMf, wUkaut hUlfied, to restrain the Governor

the books of any such public company, or from paying 
any diTiden4 or dividends due or to become due there- 
odl'' And this mode of proceeding is assimilated as far 
as may be to the practice in distringiu. The order made 
by the Coart of Chancery upon such motion or peti- 
tupD, is to ^lecify the amount of the stock, or the parti- 
cular aiuves which it is intended to affect, and the per- 
sm in whose name they are standing ; and the court has 
power, npon the application of any party interested, to 
dischaige or vary the order, and to award costs upon

UMBBR THE 1 & 2 VlCT. C. 110, S. 14. 

The Stat. 1 & 2 Vict. c. 110, in the furtherance of 
its purpose of enlarging the remedies of creditors ag^iinst 
the property of their debtors, has furnished a judgment 
creditor with the means of obtaining satisfiiction for his 
debt out of a species of property, which he could nei- 
ther take in execution at law, nor attach in equity. 
The 14th section of that act enables him to lay hold of 
the funded property of his debtor, by a mode of pro- 
ceeding that resemoles a distringas in some of its results 
and practical details. It enacts, '^ That, if any person 
against whom any judgment ^all have been entered 
up in any of her Majesty's superior courts at West- 
minster, shaU have any government stock, funds, or 
annuities, or any stock or shares of or in any public 
company in England, (whether incorporated or not), 
standing in his name in his own right, or in the name 
of any person in trust for him, it shall be lawful for a 
judge of one of the superior courts, on the application 
of any judgment crecutor, to order that sucn stock, 
funds, annuities, or shares, or such of them, or such 
part thereof respectively as he shall think fit, shall 
stand chaiged with the payment of the amount for 
shall have been so recovered, and in- 


terest thereon ; and such order shall entitle the judgment 
creditor to all such remedies as he would have been en- 
titled to, if such charee had been made in his fiivour by 
the judgment debtor.'' 

In considering the nature of the ** chaigxng order" 
introduced by this enactment, we may inquire, firstly, 
upon whose application the order ma}r be obtained; 
secondly, by wnom it may be made; thirdly, to what 
property it may extend; fourthly, its effects as a dis* 
tringas; and, fifthly, the mode of proceeding in obtain- 
ing and enforcing it. 

1. The order is to be obtained upon the application 
of a judgment creditor. And the judgment upon which 
a creditor may proceed may, it seems, be a judgment 
entered up before the passing of the act, as weu as afler, 
conformably to the express enactment!^ on that point, 
of the 11th and 13th sections. And it is to be remem- 
bered, that, according to the 18th section, the term 
"judgments" here includes "all decrees and orders of 
courts of equity, and all rules and orders of courts of 
common law, whereby any sum of money, or any costs, 
chaiges, or expenses, sheJi be payable ;'' and that the 
persons to whom any such monies, &c., shall be pay- 
able, shall be deemed judgment creditors within the 
meaning of the act, and be entitled to all remedies 
thereby given to judgment creditors. 

2. The order is to he made by a judge of one of the 
superior courts of common law. 

In cases where stock was standing in the name of the 
Accountant-General of the Court oiChancery^ the Vice- 
chancellor, at an early period after the passing of the 
act, made some orders oi this kind, chaiging such stock 
for the benefit of a judgment creditor. But, in Miles 
V. Presland, (2 Beav. 300; 4 My. & C. 431), a defend- 
ant bein^. entitled to a fifth snare of certain stock, 
standing m the name of the Accountant-General to the 
credit of the cause, a creditor, who had obtained judg- 
ment against him in the Exchequer of Fleas, applied 
to the Master of the Rolls, under the 14th section, for 
an order nisi to charge the defendant's fifth share of the 
fund with the amount of the judgment debt. But his 
Lordship, conceiving that he had no authority to make 
the order, requested that the motion might be made be- 
fore the Lord Chancellor. And Lord Cottenham, when 
the matter was accordingly brought before him, stated, 
that, after having consoUed with the Master of the 
Rolls and the Vice-chancellor, they were all of opinion, 
that the judges of the Court of Chancery had no juris- 
diction to make orders upon judgments, under the 1 8c 
2 Vict. c. 110, 8. U, and that the application should be 



mfide to one of the oommoB law judM. Hb Lordship 
added, that though the Vice-Ghaiiceuor had made such 
orde];% his Honoi^s MemAen had not at Uie time heen 
called to the objoetioli* In coaseqaence of this deoisioili 
a ohai^ing ordei*» obtained froiti we Vice-CSianeellor In 
the case of Sklkea y. Ik^^ (4 int. 1126, 10 Sim. 41}^ was 
diflchatged on the application of the debtor ; and another 
order of the same Kind was subseqnenlly obtained hy 
the creditor from a judge of the Court of Kchequer^ 

In these cases, the judgment was a judgment obtain* 
ed in a court of common law; but with respect to de» 
orees and orders of the courts of eauitv for the payment 
of moliey) Scc^f that are to have toe force of judgments 
under the 16th section, that section, after enaetingv that 
the persons to whom such monev, &c*y ShaU 1^ pc^* 
able under such ordersi ** shall be domed judgment 
creditors within the meaning of this act," proceeds to 
provide, ** that all powers heMy given to tne judges of 
the sufmrior courts o( common kw, with rMpect to 
matters depending in the same courts, shall slid may 
be exercised W uourts of equity ^th reject to matteta 
therein depending. It would appeaiv thef«fore^ that h 
ehatging <mer for the benefit or the nerson entitled to 
the money under t^e decree or order for pigrmenti 
should be made by a judge of a court of equity. 

d. The property that mi^ be charged by an order of 
this kind w described in the act, as *< any government 
stock, funds, or annuities, or any stock or shares of or 
in any public company in JBnffUmd^ (whether inoorpo* 
rated or noty 

The stock, &0.. may be either ** standing in the name 
of the debtor in his own right, or an the name of any 
perB(m in trust for him." S<Nm after the passing of 
the act a doubt was rsased, whether, under this clause, 
stock could be chaiffed in which the debtor had onl^ a 
partial interest; ana whether the oonstraction of Its 
terms must not be governed by that put on similar ex- 
pressions la the Statute of frauds (see ZW v. Or^en* 
Aili^^ B. & Aid. 684), eo as to be held to apply only 
to ample trusts for the debtor alone, and not to trusts 
where the stock is standing m the name of a trustee for 
several persons having partial interssts. But there is 
tills material distinction to be observed between the 
eases, that, in those relating to the creditor's remedy 
against the debtor^s ta$uU under the Statute <^ Frauds, 
the partial interest, subject to whidb tlm debtor was en- 
titled, Materially interfored wi^ the possession to be 
delivered under the e2^/ while, on tne contrary, the 
nsAure of an equitable charge is capable of being ac- 
commodated to every degree and modificatioa of inters 
est, and, as such, is made available, not only againUt 
funded property,^ under the 14th section, but also, un- 
der the I3tn section of the act, for the purpose of bind- 
ing those partial and reversionary and other interests In 
real property that cannot be taken in execution. The 
doubt, however, is now entirely removed by the stat. 
3 & 4 Vict. c. 82, which extends the provisions of the 
1^2 Vict. c. 110^ s. 14, " to the intersH of any judg- 
ment debtor, whether in possession, remainder^ or re- 
version, and whether vested or c<mtingent, as well in 
any stocks, fund^ or shares as also in the dividends, 
interest, or annual produce of such stocks, &c/' It was 
also doubted, whether the power of a judge to make a 
charging order of this kind applied to tne case of stock 
standing in the name of the Acoountant-General of the 
Court of Chancery. But thie doubt, also, is removed 
by the same explanatory statute, declaring, that it s^all 
be lawful for a judge of any of the superior courts of 
law to make such order, as to stock« &c., standing in 
the name of the Accountant-CrenenU of the Court of 
Chancery, or the interest and dividends thereof, in the 
same way as if the same were standing in the name of a 
trustee for the judgment debtor. But tne order in su<di a 
case shall not operate to prevent a txanrferv or payment 
of the dividend^ by direction of the Court of Chaxic(3^« 

The«otistmctioa of this part of the statute of 1 & 2 
Vict. c. 110, both indepenuentbr of the lubeequent de» 
danttorv act, and as explained by its nsststanoe, was 
much discuased in the case of Hmlim ▼. 1^, alrewiy 
referred to. In that caas^ the defondaht was entitled to 
certiun sums of stock, standing in the name of ths 
Aocountant-G^neral to his sepaiate Scoount^ and had 
mortgaged them; and a person who had recovered 
judgment in an action against him, in May, 1840^ ob* 
tained an order from Mr. Baron Rdfe, under the 14th 
section, chaiging the stock with the payment of ths 
sum for which judgment had been recovmd. Upon a 
petition by the creditor to the Vioe-Chanoellor, for a 
subsidiary stop^rder on the ftind, It was contended, on 
the part of the debtor: firstly, that the aol of the 1 & 2 
Vict, did not ap)^y to atock in which any other perBon 
besides the juogment debt<ff had an intorest; and, le* 
cottdly, that stock standing in the name of the Ac- 
countant-General was not within thai act; and that 
the 3 & 4 Vict. c. 82, which pasasd on the 7th August^ 
1B40, had no retrospective operation, eo as to remote 
these objections. In giving judgment upon thi)iOBse, ths 
VIee-Chancellor said : << Before the eeoond act passed, I 
had occasion to apeak to the Lord ChanOellor on ths 
subject of the first aOt, and 1 distinctly uiideiutood froia 
his ijordship, that it was the intentioii of the Icgiala^ 
tuve, that any order, whrch should have the eflfect «f 
making a charge on stock standing in the name of the 
Accountant-General, riiould be ttMMa, not by a judge 
of this court, but by a judge of One Of the eourts of law ; 
but ^e Lord Chancellor never expressed a doubt that 
the judges of Uie courts of common kw might make 
orders which should charge stock standing in the name 
of the Acoountant-ijreBenJ, in which the par^ soughl 
to be ohaij^d had m^ interest; and it ia very dear to 
me, that, if there was any such doubt, it is removed by 
the subeeouent act, which does both declare and define 
what shall be the construction of tile former act." 
After distinguishing the oass of Ih» v. Gr emik iU , which 
had been cited, his Honor continued : ** It seems to mt, 
that, in a case wher« the Accoulitant-Gew«al hddsa 
fund in trust for A. and other peiuem^ he is a tmstee 
for A. and those other persona; abd, if A.'e interest ia 
the fond is sul^ect to a chai^, I see no resnon why 
that circumstanoe should prevent am order heintf made» 
under the act, to cha»e the fund.*' Bui, on this point 
as well iM the other, his Honor thouaht the a<A, beta;; s 
statutoiy explanation of the firat, Sad a retiospecUve 
operation, supposing, however, that the act had s re- 
trospective efteot, it had been contended that the order of 
Mr. Baron Rolfe was erroneous, becauae It chai^ the 
stock g»ierally, and not the debtor's interest in the 
stock, with the judgment debt. But Sir L. Shadwell was 
of opinion, that, thoitgh the debtor had not an exclusiTS 
interest in the fund, and the order was void as to a 
party who had a prior interest in Uie fond, it wooldf 
nevertheless, extMid to the interest which he had ; aod 
the stop-order was granted, the mortgagees of the fw 
being excepted out of it. 

An order, therefoK, may be made, chareing any in- 
terest of the debtor in the stock, though it be parUai 
only, and either joint, particular, or reVendonary; and 
the order may charge either the c&rpui of the stock, 
or the dividends only; *nd it mi^ comprehend the 
whole of a certain sum of stock belonging to the debt* 
or, or he confined to a part only, so as to adapt the ex- 
tent of the charge to the amount of the debt; and it 
mil not be defeated by a mortgwre of the fond pre- 
viously made by the debtor, but wiU take efieot subject 
to the prior incumbrance. For this is ftgreeaUe to the 
terms of the act, which pkees the judgmont cre^t^r ^^ 
the same situation exactly, and invests him with Uie 
same remedies, as if the chai^ had been made mhis 
favour by the debtor himself. 

Accoroiiig to the obviouB construotton ^f the daos^ 



its proTisions applv to stock vested in the debtor, not 
at die time when the judgment is entered np, bnt at the 
date of the order. The debtor, therefore, may defeat 
the creditor's jnemedj, by selling the stock at any time 
be^ire an order is obtained. 

4. In order to prevent the judgment debtor fh)m dis- 
posi^ of the stock, &c., so as to defeat the creditor's 
icmeahr, the chai^K order is, in the first Instance, to 
be made ex parte, and without notice to the debtor, and 
is an order to shew cause only ; and till the order is made 
absolute, or disch^ed, it shall operate in the way of 
a Hg^^^ag to restram the Bank or the public company 
from permitting a transfer; or, if after notice of the 
order they permit a transfer, will render tiiem liable to 
the jutenent creditor to the amount of the property so 
charged and transferred ; and no disposition of the judg- 
ment d^tor in the meantime will be valid against tixe 
judgmcDt creditor. 

It is observable, that, though the words '* government 
stock, funds, or annuities," are undoubtedly applicable 
le stock transferable at the South Sea House, as well as 
at the Bank^ the Bank alone is expressly mentioned in 
the part of the 15th section of the act relating to the 
iUtrm^ae, Kor do the general expressions there used 
«em adapted to include the government stock in the 
hands of the South Sea Company. 

If the stock is standing in the name of the Account^ 
ani-OeDeial of the Court of Chancery, that court will 
gaai a stop-order on the stock as auxuiary to a charg- 
ing Older by a common law judge, during the interval 
of the SUL months to elapse between the charging order 
and any proceedings to make the charge effectual. 
{HuBtet r. I>ay, 4 Jur. 1125, 10 Sim. 41J. 

5. With the view of obtaining a chaigmp: order, the 

nature and particulars of the property which it is pi-o- 

pQisd to diai^ge should, in the first case, be ascertained ; 

and, upon an affidavit, stating the circumstances of the 

jndgi&eni, and tJie amount and description of the stock 

istCTded to be charged, and the name of the person in 

wbkh It is standing, an order nisi will be made upon 

appliation to a judge at chambers. The order is to be 

served immediately upon the Secretary of the Bank, or 

upon the acting officer of the Company, according to 

the nature of the property to which it relates; and, 

afterwards^ notice of the order is to be given to the 

JQ^ment debtor, by service of a copy of it upon him 

or his attorney. 

If the judgment debtor, having been served with 
notice of the order, shall not, within the time, or on the 
day, mentioned in the order, shew sufficient cause to the 
eontnxy, the order may be made absolute. Or, sufficient 
came hein^ shewn, it may be dischaiged on his appli- 
cation; 80 it may, likewise, on the application of any 
other party interested in the stock, as a trustee or 
another cestui que trust. 

In preparing the affidavit on which an order is to be 
founded for charging a partial interest, care should be 
ta^seu accurately to specify the amount, as well of the 
whole nan of stock, as of the part or share in which 
the judgment debtor is beneficially interested. In a 
case vfhere the charge was, in the first instance, too 
extensively being applied to the whole of a sum of stock 
standti^ in the name of a trustee, and the judgment 
debtor was only one of several cestuis que trust, the 
order was discharged, and confined to an amount com- 
liaeusurate with the interest of Uie debtor. ( fViUesford 

T. , Wilkinson, Law of Stock, 245^. We have 

seen, however, {MuIJtes v. Day, ubisup.), Uiat the Vice- 
chancellor did not consider an order was absolutely in- 
validated by reason of its not being restricted to the 
actual interest of the judgment debtor in the property; 
but though void, in such a case, as to a party having a 
prior or partial interest, and incorrect m its form, it 
might he effectual to the extent of the actual share or 
interest of the debtor. 

The efiect of the order, when made absolute, 'wQl be 
the same (but no other or greater^ as if the debtor had 
himself charged the stock or dividends, in fovour of the 
judgment creditor, with the amount of the sum men- 
tioned in the order. (1 & 2 Vict, c. 110, s. 14; 3^4. 
Vict. c. 82, s. 1). But no proceedings are to be taken 
to have the benefit of the charge untu after the expira- 
tion of six calendar months from the date of the charge 
ing order. It will, however, be valid against the banE- 
ruptcy or insolvency of the debtor in the meantime. 

If {he creditor, alter obtaining an order <^ this kln^ 
takes the debtor's person in^execution^ he will lose the 
benefit of the charge. ' B« 



Sir, — Until the decision in the case of t/bntf v. Joneti, 
(8 Sim. 683), upon which you have commented in a 
recent number of The Jurist, I had always undeatood^ 
in common, I believe, with some conveyancers of emi- 
nence, that the salutarv doctrine of Dearie r.HaU, &c., 
applied to real as much as to personal estate; and the 
alarm and regret with which I witnessed the Yioe* 
Chancellor of JGngland's attempt to confine that doc- 
trine to personal estate have not been diminished by 
your able advocacy of his Honoris opinion. As the 
subject is of considerable importance, and as^ whatever 
may be your opinion with regard to the actual state of 
the law, you will probably agree, that it is very desir- 
able to place equitable interests in real estate on the 
same advantageous footing with similar interests in 
j>ersonalty, I am induced to trespass uj^onyour atten- 
tion, by endeavouring to shew, that his Honor's doc- 
trine is at least open to objection, if not, indeed, di- 
rectly contradicted by principle and authority. 

It may be as weD, m the first place, to relieve the ar- 
gument from the weight which is generally attributed 
to Jones V. Jones, as a decision on the point; but to 
which an examination of the circumstances will shew 
that it is not entitled. The jproperty in dispute in that 
case consisted of a legal remainaer in fee-fdmnle devised 
to Eliza Whitworth> and a legal estate for life devised 
to her by another testator*. Eliza Whitworth mar- 
ried F. L. Brown, and, by her marriage-settlement, 
conveyed her remainder in fee to sueh uses as she and 
her husband should iointly appoint. This settlement 
was Intrusted to the keening of William Jones, the so- 
licitor to the parties. The Brovms afterwards demised 
the life estate and appointed the remainder in fee to 
William Jones by way of mortgage, and subsequently 
joined in a transfer of the mortgage and a further charaa 
to Jane James, a client of WiUiam Jones, who left the 
deeds in his hands as solicitor. The Browns then made 
a mortgage of both estates to John Jones, without dis- 
closing the former charges, or anything beyond the wills 
and tne settlemenL Lastly, the Browns executed a 
mortgage of the two estates to John Harris, disdodng 
the mortgage to Jane James, but concealing the subse- 
quent mortgage to John Jones; and Harris caused a 
notice of his mortgage to be indorsed on the settlement. 
Now, it is obvious that these circumstances did not 
raise the question in Dearie v. Hall; the doctrine of 
which case is shortly this : that where a person has an 
equitable interest of such a nature that he cannot make 
out a title at all, without shewing that the legal title is 
outstanding in a trustee, every one dealing with that ^ 
interest is bound to inform the trustee of his dealii^K^v' 
in order that parties to whom it may subsei^^uemybfr, '; 
offered, may have it in t h eir power to ascertam ] 


* Back ef theie estates wm ^ievised to traitew, m i 
£. Whitworth; but, in loch a nuuiner, that the trust te j^ 
cuted as a use by the statute. 






istinff cliaiges upon it. In Jbnef t. Janu^ the title 
which was made out to John Jones was a legal title in 
the Browns themselves; and he was not aware even of 
the mortgage to Jane James. There was no trustee to 
whom he conld give notice. The notice indorsed on 
the settlement by Harris was not notice to any trustee 
of the property; nor was it any effectual protection 
against naud by the Browns; for the settlement might 
£ive been suppressed, or the notice erased, without any 
fear of detection. The Vice-Chancellory however, con- 
sidered that the case fell within the doctrine of Dearie 
T. HdU, if that doctrine could be extended to real 
estate; and he held that it could not be so extended. 
I^ow if, as is inoontestabloy Uie circumstances of Jones 
V. Jones did not raise the question, his Honor's judg- 
ment amounted to a mere extrajudicial dictum ; and 
even as such. Is not entitled to the weu;ht which is in 
most cases justljr attributed to opinions m>m the bench, 
because it bears inUnnal evidence of having been pro- 
nounced under a misapprehension of the veiy doctrine 
which it professes to limit. 

The doctrine of Dearie Y.HaUwaSy no doubt, borrowed 
from the enactments in the Bankrupt Acts against reput- 
ed ownership, (with which, however, it has no necessary 
connection), and hence the frequent reference in the cases 
on that doctrine to personal chattels and choses in action. 
Sir T. Plumer relied very much on the dicta of the com- 
mon law and equity judges in the great bankruptcy case 
of IfyaU V. Botdesy (1 Ves. sen. 371, 1 Atk. 182^. In- 
deed the opportunities for the application of tne doc- 
trine are ot much more firequent occurrence under titles 
to personal than to real property, for the obvious rea- 
son, that merely equitable titles to real estate are not 
common, except in the form of equities of redemption ; 
and then they are often cloaked with a fictitious legal 
title, which excludes the doctrine in question. But in 
cases which have fieurly come within the principle of 
Dearie v. HMy I believe it can be shewn, that the doc- 
trine of that case has aOual^ been held to appfy to real 

That there is nothing in the principle of the doctrine 
to confine it to persomd estate, I conceive needs little 
argument. At the conclurion of the argument in Dearie 
v. HaUj Sir T. Plumer^s language was as follows : — 
'* The plaintiffs had been negli^nt, and, in consequence 
of their negligence, third parties had been involved in 
transactions which conld not have taken place, if the 
first purchasers, by omitting to communicate their 
claims to the legal owners of the fund, had not put it 
out of the power of those legal owners, though acting 
with perfect fumess and honesty, to renresent to the 
subsequent purchaser the true state ot the circum- 
stances. Wnere a purchaser, by his negligence, places 
a subsequent purchaser who has acted with all due cau- 
tion, in such a situation that loss must &11 either upon 
the one or the other, he who has been in de&ult, and 
has caused the mischief, ought not to be saved harmless 
at the expense of an innocent party." 

These are equitable reasons of the most general ap- 
pdication that can be imagined ; and cannot, on any ra- 
tional ground, be confined to one particular species of 
property. In his subsequent judgment. Sir T. Plumer 
enlarged upon this topic, and mainly relied on it in sup- 
port of his decision ; at the same time introducing the 
notion, which has since been so much insisted on, or com- 
pleting the equitable title. But I prefer Quoting the 
concise summary of the grounds of Sir T. Plumer's 
judgment, ffiven by Lord Lyndhurst in the House of 
Lords, (in tne case of Foster v. Cockerelly 3 CI. & Fin. 
475) : ** The reason on which his Honor adopted that 
principle, as the rule for his decision, seems to have been, 
that, if a contrary doctrine was allowed to prevail, it 
would enable a cestui que trust to commit a fraud by en- 
abling him to assign his interest, first to one, and then to 
A second incombxaacer ; (ind perbapsi indeed, to a great 

many more ; and these latter incumbrancers would have 
no opportunity of ascertaining, by any communication 
with the trustees, whether or not there had been a prior 
assignment of the interest on the security of which they 
were relying for provision for their chums. Another 
principle acted upon by the Master of the Rolls was, 
that a party, till he gave notice to the trustees, had not 
done every thinp; that was necessary to complete his title. 
I fully agree with that principle. In a case of this sort, 
it is necessary that a party, claiming advantage from a 
title, should do every thing that is requisite to complete 
that title, before he sets up a claim in respect of it. The 
Master of the Rolls was also of opinion, that the trus- 
tees themselves were entitled to notice on their own ac- 
count ; and that, till notice was given to the trustees, they 
did not, in fisict^ become trustees for the aso^ee.*' 

So fiur from these grounds pointing exclurively at per- 
sonal property, they have a more especial reference to 
the old established maxims of the law. in regard to 
realty. What is the object proposed by the rule ? Pub- 
licity and the prevention of secret alienations. And 
what but that same end was contemplated in the old 
feudal requisites of livery of seimn and entry, or at- 
tommenty as essential to the transfer of every interest 
in land ? At the common law no title to real propertj 
could be completed without the knowledge of eveiy 
party concerned in interest. What is the foundation of 
the whole doctrine of getting in outstanding terms, but 
this very notion of ** completing the title t" If you 
purchase an estate and take an assignment of an out- 
standing term, you appropriate the benefit of it. If 
you miSce the old trustee a party to your convej'auce, 
you equally appropriate the benefit of it; but, if vou 
merelv declare m your conveyance that all terms shall 
attend your estate, and have no dealings with the trus- 
tees of them, you giun no advantage over a later claim- 
ant. The term must he got in in some sense^ said Lord 
Eldon, in Maundrell v. Mamdrell, ( 10 Yes. 271 )> either 
by taking an assignment, makinp the trustee a party to 
tne instrument^ or taking possesswn of the deed creating 
the term. If theae means are sufficient, as Lord Eldon 
has repeatedly laid it down that they are, to entitle a 
purchaser to the benefit of an outstanding legal estate, 
which he does not clothe himself wUhy the very point, as 
it seems to me, is determined; and we may assert, on 
the authority of Lord Eldon, that an equitable incum- 
brancer on real estate may, by merely giving notice 
to a trustee of the legal estate, gain priority over a for- 
mer incumbrancer who has ne^ected to do so, and of 
whose charge neither party has any notice. 

The language of Sir J. Wigram, V. C, in'his recent 
and elaborate judgment in the case of Meux v. Bell^ (1 
Hare, 83 ; 6 Jur. 128), although, with that caution which 
always accompanies great judicial abilities, his Honor 
carerally follows the language of former authorities, 
seems to be strongly coimrmatoiy of this view. The 
question being, in what manner the notice should he 
given, his Honor observed, **If the trustee has actual 
knowledge at the time the transaction takes P^^ ^ 
have always understood the principle of law to be, that 
what a man knows for one purpose he knows for all; 
and you do not inquire whether he learnt it in one char- 
acter or in another." And with reference to the case of 
Timson v. Eamsbottom^ (2 Kee. 85), where Lord Lang- 
dale, M. R., held that notice to one of two executors 
was insufficient as against an incumbrancer who took 
his charge after the death of that executor ; although, m 
Smith V. Smith, (2 C. & M. 231), notice to one of two 
trustees, who was living when the second transaction 
took place, was held siuiicient. Sir J. Wig:rani, V. C., 
said, "Having got rid of the technical objectio^ that 
notice to one is notice to all, the question was reduced 
to this : at the time when the second incumbrancer tooK 
his security, was there any person living who had notice 
of the prior incumbrance bdng created r Again^ ^'^\ 



nason why notioe to one has been held saffident ii^ be- 
came noUunff lesB than inquiry of all the tnutees would 
aatieff a piiident inquirer." Nothing can be more op- 
poeM thim this to the notion that there is anv technical 
efficacy in tlnu ^completing the title" to a rand, inde- 
pcBdenily of the equitable merit of protecting after- 
eomcn. If there are three trustees, X., Y. and Z., and 
A. gives notioe to X^ and then B., a second incnm- 
'baacer, gives notice to Y. and Z., it is clear, upon the 
authorities^ that B. would be postponed, although he 
had done more towards ** completing his title" th«i A. 

I am not aware of any cases antmdent to Dearie v. 
IfaU that are opposed to the extennon of the doctrine 
to real estate ; out if any such could be found, they 
woold not, I oonoeiVe, be admissible as authorities at the 
present day ; because the doctrine, even as to personalty, 
was neivcr reooffnised, until Sir T. Flumer established it 
in that CBR. In WriffJU r. Lord Darcketter^ (3 Russ. 
492^, Lord Eldon thought the point too doubtnil to be 
decided on an interlocutoiy application. In Cocper r. 
Jjmmofty (3 Rnss. 60), Sir T. Flumer himself actually 
decided against the claim of a party who had given no- 
tice to the trustees of a personal fund ; and in ToyrvilU 
r.JfaM^ (3 P. W. 307), Lord Talbot also decided in 
direct opposition to what b now the law. In the last- 
mentlonea case, one of two executors, who was also re- 
Bdasiy legatee, assigned a part of his legacy to A., and 
then assigned the whole of his interest to his co-execu- 
tor, who Aad no notice of the prior disposition. Lord 
Taihat held that A. had priority, although it ia now 
sittled thaty where the alienee of the fund is also one of 
the tnisteea, no further notice is necessary; (Ex parte 
Smmiy 2 Mont. & Avr. 60) ; but, on the other hand, if 
the owner of the fund is one of the trustees, the notice 
winch As has is ineflfectual. {ExparUM^T^rk^QJAont. 

The esse of Peacock v. Bwiy before Lord Cottenham 
vhcn Master of the Rolls, (13 Law J. 35), has been 
cited oo both sides of the question, although I cannot 
see that it throws much light on either. £i that case, 
k, made a legal mortoage to B. ; he then mortoaged to 

C, who had notice of B.'s mortgage, and gave nim no- 
tice of her own. LasUy, A. obtained an Mvance from 

D. on the secority of the estate, D. paying off B., and 
taking a conveyance of the legal estate from him, with- 
out being informed of C.*s chaige. The question was, 
not wiietner B. should be answerable to C. for conceal- 
ing her claim, but whether D. could be deprived of the 
Imefit of the actual legal estate ; and the Master of the 
Rolls of coarse held tnat he could not. " The third 
mortgagee," said that distinguished judge, ^^ who is, to 
all intents and purposes, a purchaser for valuable consi- 
dcsation, being witnout notioe, is entitled to the full be- 
n^ c€ his kml rights and remedies. It has been sup- 
posed, that the cases of Dearie v. HdU^ &c., determine 
the pmnt; but, in in^ opinion, the decision in these 
cases p r o cee ded on difierent principles ; they merely de- 
cided, that, as between parties having equities only, 
be ivho first g^ves notice obtains priority ; and this is 
appsRBi when we look at the grounds on which those 
cases were decided. Sir T. Flumer proceeded on the 
principle^ that it was not possible to transfer the legal 
inierest; and that, whenever it is intended to complete 
tile transfer of a chose in action, there is a mode of deal- 
ing with it which a court of equity considers tanta- 
mount to poflsession, namel;jv notice given to the legal 
depositary of the &nd. * The question here is,' says 
his Honor, ' not which assignment is first in date, but 
whether there is not, on the' port of Hall, a better title 
to call for the legal estate,' [almost the very words used 
by Lord Eldon, with reference to real estate]. So, a^in, 
£>rd Lyndhurst, in affirming the judgment of Sir T. 
Flumer, states, as a reason for coming to the same con- 
duaoi^ that the act of giving the trustee notice was, in 
a eotam degree, taking (KMsesaion of the fund; and that 

it was going as fiv towards equitable possession as it was 
possible to go. iSb thai thoie eoMf, at for ae <i^ ajp^y 
are mtv tHrong deoiiioni m fantmr of D.; for Uiey de- 
cide, that a second incumbrancer without notice, hav* 
ing obtained a quasi le^ title in a chose in action, gains 
a priority over the pnor incumbrancer. Here D. has 
the actual legal estate." The point in Peaooeh v. Bwri 
was different fiwm that in DoaAe v. HaH^ &c. ; but how 
could those cases be in fiivour of D.'s daim, if the prin- 
ciples of equity as to personal choses did not apply to 
real estate i If those cases were inapplicable to real es- 
tate, would not the Master of the Bolls have said so, in- 
stead of striving to distinguish the circumstances from 
those before himi An equitable title to land is just as 
much a chose in action as an equitable title to money. 
In FotH/er v. CociereH, the rule was applied to a fund 
chaiged on real estate ; so that the doctrine in Jomee v. 
JbiMffmust be carried to thb extent,— that, if an equita- 
ble owner mortgages to A. and then to B., B. can geia 
no priority by giving notice ; but if A. mortgages his 
charge (which is personalty) to C, and then to D., C. 
may be postponed hy D.'s notice, and yet the property 
in question m both cases is identical! 

It only remains to examine the aiguments of the 
Vice-Chancellor in Jotus v. Jones, as they are to be 
coUected from the report. His Honor b reported to have 
said, that, according to Peacock v. Bwiy the notice in 
that case was of no value. Now, it is evident that Lord 
Cottenham did consider Uie notice to be of value, but of 
less value than the actual lc«al estate. His Honor then 
cited the observation of Lord Eldon in Hiem v. MHIl, (13 
Yes. 114), that, ^ There is a marked distinction between 
a real estate and a personal chattel. The latter is held by 
posaession, a real estate, by title." But that remark was 
merely made to shew, that a vendor's possession of an 
estate should not induce a purchaser to shut his eyes to 
circumstances^ such as the absence of the deeds, which 
might lead to a discovery of outstanding rights ; although 
the possession of a personal chattel is a good primi ni- 
cie tide. But what has this to do with equitaole tities, 
where there is no possesrion ? PHct v. BMuetty (2 Vem. 
726); Beckm v. Cordl^, (1 B. C. C. 363); EeaiM v. 
Biekneli, (6 Yes. 174); Martmeat v. Cooper, (2 Russ. 
214), and the other cases of that class, where the neglect 
of leaving the titie deeds in the hands of the mortgagor, 
unaccompanied by any fraudulent intention, was held 
insufficient to postpone a mortgagee, were all cases where 
the mortffagee had the iegal estate*; and, besides, are 
not a little sliaken by the decision in WkUbread v. Jor^ 
dan, ^2 You. & C. 303). In the only case where the 

aueation arose between merely efmUaMe incnmbrancera, 
lie party neglecting to secure the deeds toev postponed, 
although no fnmd was imputed to him. {Skmkope v. 
Earl Venuy, 2 Edem 81 j Butl. n. Co. Litt. 280. b.). 

Upon the whole, I believe it will be found that this 
Question, if not actually concluded by authority against 
tne dictum in Jotus v. Jones, is at least not settled the 
other way; and, therefore, until it shall be so deter- 
mined, prudence, as well as an honest wish to prevent 
fraud, will dictate the propriety of giving^ notice in every 
case of an incumbrance upon an equitable interest, 
without regard to its nature. The caution given by 
Sir T. Plumer in the principal case should not be for- 
irotten: << A solicitor neglecting to ffive notice, would 
find it difficult to make out that he had not become re- 
sponsible to his client." 

I trust that the importance of the subject will be an 
excuse for the length of tliis communication, and am. 
Sir, &C. G. S. 

* " The question here/' aaid Sir T, Plumer^ in Dearie v.

TsBaAlleintlieHitiiseof Lords of the I'stinstant 
( ■ »■ I N pj PiMJiamentaiy intelligence, poet^ p. 76) hae pat 
of Lord Campbell's ideas for the im- 
tlie appellate jurisdiction of the House of 
Leidi^ iriljA introlTey as will be seen, the destruction 
€i tie iTnlflil Committee of the Privy Couneil,' and 
tfe fWMiiTaliun of the Court of Chancery. We need 
viA renfad our readers, that it is only a few months 
tiie L^iskture, after frequent inquiries and dis- 
la Act for increasing the judicial 
stK^gth of the Court of Chasceiy, satisfied, as we must 
rtwwiwiB, that foch an increase of strengtb Was desir- 
Mt for Qm administration of justice. But, at this 
d^» vlpm m reform in the law, a few years old, is bI- 
Tm^^bmfjbi to be waxing into the decrepitude of a 
awj^ Mttiquifgr, it may be proper to remind our read- 
en^ tiiKt As ppeaent oonsdtntion of the Judicial Com- 
isHtoe of the Privy Council has reached the alarming 
1^ of not kfli fliaa eight years and a half; and that, 
tHenforay H must neceissarily have become so incum- 
WnA wlik cbiiMs, and must so completely have ceased 
to beaiifvfee to the wants of an advanced state of civi* 
liMtiw, ute render its abolition a measure of high ex- 

Loixl OupheU proposes, as we collect from what is 
nported to have fiiUen from him, to abolish the Judi- 
cial CoBUDtttea of the Privy Council as a Court of ap- 
peal, and to tnmafer aU its appeal jurisdiction to the 
HoweofLotds. He proposes, in order to meet this ac- 
eoiwihtSgn of judicial business, to take the Lord Chan- 
celior out of the Court of Chancety, and confine him, 
asajsAUpeaoDytotheHooaeof Lords; and he pro- 
peas to anfpi^ hie place in the Court of Chancery by a 
pnaMBcat pawiiliiig Judge in eouity, whom he recom- 
flHoAi to%ataiam mm among «ie existing Vice^Uhan- 

The groundwork of this wholesale substitutional pro- 
cess is, as we understand his Lordship, the defect of the 
existing constitution of the Appellate Jurisdiction of 
the House of Lords. But on what ground the improve- 
ment of that jurisdiction appears to him only attain- 
able through the destruction of the Judicial Committee 
of the Privy Council, we profisss ourselves wholly un- 
able to comprehend. His Lordahip states, indeed, that 
there are now two Courts of Appeal of co-ordinate Ju- 
risdiction, meaning, we suppose, the House of Lordi and 
the Judicial Committee of the I^vy Coundl ; and he 
sCotes, further, his individual opinion, that there ought 
to be but one Supreme C^rt of Appeal; and tiien, as- 
{mming these twb po^^ons to be coiveet, Without fur- 
ther proof or reasoniuA^, he determines, that, if one of the 
two Courts of Appeal is to be abofiehed, the Judicial 
Committee is the one that must perish. We conceive^ 
with great submission, however, to an individual, even 
so leamel and so deservedly eminent as the late Lord 
Chancellor of Irelan<h l^t somehiDg of proof is want- 
ing before jnen's .lUMs will be satisfied of the expe^ 
diency of proceettng to tiie aboUtioh'of a Tribunal 
which has exislad in some fopn for more than thre^ 
centuries; and which has been entirely reformed and 
adapted by the Legislature to the wants of modem timee^ 
only so far back as 18«IK9: '^ 

We would first ask, what is meisint by ^ two Courts of 
Appeal of co-ordinate Jurisdiction V* By those terms, we 
should have supposed would be understood two Courts 
holding their jurisdiction in the same right; alike in 
constitution; administering the same law; and sitting 
in appeal on causes brought from the same inferior juris- 
diction ; in fine, we should have supposed, that Courts 
of similar jurisdiction in all or most respects, must have 
been meant. 

That, however, cannot have been the meaning of the 
noble and learned Lord, because, in fret, the Houss of 
liOTds and the Judicial Committee do sol bear that sort 



of relation one to the otker. The House of Lords is an 
independent Court of Aj^eal, in right of its being the 
Assembly of the Peers of ParHament. Whate^or may 
be the extent of its jurlBdioiion in theory, it is quite 
clear, that, in practice, it ynly exercises jurisdiction on 
appeals from the subordinate Courts of Law and ^uity . 
The Judicial Committee of the Priyy Council, on 
t£e contrary, confines Its jurisdiction to appeals irom 
thB AdniMty aftd ficclssllstieal Courts, and ttovn 
the Colonial dominions of the Crown. The House of 
Lords has jarisdiction to determine^ as well as to hear 
and inquire. The Judicial Committeee of the Privy 
CouncU has only power to hear and inquire, and does 
not deteniune, but only advises the Ctown. The ap« 
peal to the Honte of Lords Is to the Lords, as an inde- 
pendent body of judges; tl^e appeal to the Privy Coun- 
cil is to the Queaa in oounsil. In hct^ the House of 
Lq]x^ is a distinct and independent Court of Appeal in 
matters whieb, by the bws of the land, ore originally 
heard by some of the judges appointed by the Crown to 
administer those lawsj while the Jodidal Committee is 
mfijely a council using judicial forms of procedure, for 
the purpose of ascertaining and iidylsix^ the Crown upon 
the law,, in appeals from jurisdictions, over which the 
Crown is itself the judge of last resorts Two tribunals 
more thoroughly distinct^ both in ihaory and pnMtioe, 
it is hardly possible to conceive. That they should come 
into actual conflict on the same case, as suggested by 
Lprd Campbell} seems scarcely possible. And, though 
it must be admitted that they might oome into conflict 
on matter of law in different casea^ involving the same 
point of law, yet, unless the decision of the one court 
hs^pena to be unknpwn to the other, even that case of 
conflict is not yery probable, as^ unquestionably, either 
of those hig^ tribunals would pay great attention to the 
deliberate decision of the other. The fact appears to be, 
according to the statement of the Lord Chancellor, that 
there has been no instance of a oenfliot of decision be- 
tween the Privy Council and th^ House of Lords* 

. But suppose the proposition to be carried into effecti, 
aud the jurisdiction of the Judicial Committee trans- 
ferred to the House of Lords ;•— bqw is it there to be ex- 
ercised 1 The House of Lords usually comprises among 
its I9ember8 a cei'tain number of Lords learned in the 
Law of Kugland, and, perhaps, of Scotland ; but it very 
rarely counts among its number any noble Lord learned 
in the Ecclesiastical Law, or in those Foreign Laws 
which are in force in many of our Colonies, In order 
to abjudicate upon tlie variety of codes which govern 
the cases coming before it as a Court of universal Ap- 
peal, it would, therefore, be obliged continually to call to 
its assistance, as advisers, persons learned in those laws. 
It may be said, why should not the House of Lords call 
to its assistance the Judges of other Courts as well as 
the Judges of the Common Law? But the answer is, 
that it would be objectionable if the highest Court of 
Appeal wero under the necessity of eotUinuaffjt calling 
to advise it any foreign assistance. The Judges are 
not in practice required to assist the House of Lords 
except on matters of law of great importance, and on 
which there is the highest degree of doubt ; cases ne- 
cessarily of care ocourrence, la by far the m%jor part 
of the oaasis heard by the House 4»f L«ni^ ponesnjug, 
aa ibfiy do, in Idieir own ^»iy iisM^ «l aU tuM% mm ; 

or more common-law Judeei^ they nelthsr require, nor, 
in ftust, make use of any roreign asaiatanoe. 

It would be otherwise, we apmhend, if the^ became 
a Court of Appeal from all the various junsdictions 
from whicb an appeal now lies to the Judicial Com- 
mittee. And we doubt much, whether the dignitv of 
the House, or the authority of its judgments, would be 
greatly increased by the circumstance of its being seen 
labttaally to lean upon the asristaaas of otiwf Jvdgsi 
in thf oKecution of its high judicial functiono. 

On tile remaining parts of Lord CampbelTs plan, we 
shaUnoti at present, offw any l^ogthenMrwaam. Nsi- 
tner the proposal for withdrawing the Lord Chancellor 
from the Court of Chancery,nox that for appointing a peiv 
manent Chief Judce in Equity are, inthemaalvMi asw; 
though, undoubtealy. It is new, to propose these mea- 
sures within BO very short a period mm the lisia wlwa 
the Legislature has attempted to apply a specific ?emedy 
to the evils alleged to arise from the Lord ChaBcelkff 
being overburthened with judiolal lalxmr. 

From the adverse opinions expressed b^r all the leam* 
ed Lords who spoke m the debate on this subject, we 
mav" collect, perhaps, that Lord CampboU'fl mesnus 
wiU be unlikely to reach an advanced stage; should it, 
however, do so, we shall endeavour to lay beftm our 
readers the detoils of bills, which, whether they riisil 
tum out to bo improvwnents or not, wHI, at aay «ate, go 
to efieet the greatest changes in the admhustmtlon of 
the law that we have yet seen. 



UNPBS ros 1 & 2 VICT. o« IIC^ s, 19. 

The statute of the 1 & 2 Vict, c. 110, while it aboMe$ 
arrest on mesne process, leaves the superior courts in 
the possession and exercise of their power of attaching 
the person tov a eontempt oommitted by dlsobedjeuM 
to their orders. But. at the same thne, iti 18th seetiDfi 
gives to rules or ordeia of court, for Uia pi^mept of 
money and oostc^ the eifect and all the ibrce of a judg- 
ment, so as to enable the party, to whom the money and 
costs are payable, to take out execution thereon against 
the real and personal property of tlie party by whom 
thsy are ordered ta be paicU And thus, ia thoss csw 
particularly In which the process by attaabm^t «*• 
hiost frequently resorted ip, in enfi>rcmg awavds lor tki 
payment of money, and orders of court jor the p^ymeot 
of costs, a more direct and efficacious remedv is prorid- 
ed, which seems likely to be preferably aaopted, snd 
will, perhaps, entirely supeiaede the oth^. It has evsa 
sometimes oeen doubted, whother the piooeeding hy^h 
taohment for tho non-'paymeat of mopev, pursuant to a 
rule of court, has not been virtually aWished by tha^, 
18th section of the 1 & 2 VLct. c. 110, which, givbg the 
power of enforcing such rutos by execution against the I 
property, has, consequently, rendered it umiecessaiy to | 
nave recourse to an attaehment. It might, bowinr, 
have been intended, that the romady given by iim ite*i| 
tute should be cumulative, and be available altsiaa*|| 
tively with that at common law. And the courts, not- 
withstanding the doubt, have continued to grant attach* J 
ments in such cases; particularly while it remained ^ i 
question, how far, and in what manner, the proccasi 
under the statute was applicable to the fnrposs of sn^J 
forcing tlw p%}-meiit of money awarded by an arbitfslar* . 
But now that this question appears to m satisfsctoniy ^ 
settled, it is probable, that the piocetf by attachmeoti j 
even for the non-performance of such awids, will more 1 
and more fen into disuse, when brought practically into j 
comparison with the mow oonvement md eflectaai , 

means provided by the statvta, . .. j 

Tim raha of the oaaila of oQBMatt l«v, that bytlu^

of the mosi mateml qoestions that have arisen, and 
the pimapal points of practice, that, in the short time 
ebpsed sbice tne passinff of the act, have been settled or 
^giteted, relative^ to these roles of court, thus made 
o|a2TBlait in effect to jodgments. 

L EinjBs FOR THE Patxent op a Sum ov Monbt. 

la the first place, according to the oonstroction that 
hsibeon pat upon these enactments, they have been 
heid to apply only to cases where a precise sum of 
maoej is oraered bytheeourt to be pud, and not to cases 
wJuffe fwmethiwg more b reqoisite, as where^ before it 
beeones payable, anact is to be done by a thud person. 
The moneyy in short, must be payable by the rule itself 
sad its amount must appear on the face of the rule. 

Th is point was determined in the case of Joneg v. 
IFiffiMS, (4 Per. & D. 217; 11 Adol. & £11. .178), 
vben the question was, whether a fieri ftcias oould 
]ane,uader the 1 & 2 Vict. c. 110, for non-pavment of 
a sameffrasney found to be due by an award, the agree* 
meat idnSatsace having been made a role of conrt. It 
SMBis lo have been aigoed, that, the parties having 
Mgntd to abide by the award, and the agreement having 
Men made a role of coort, and the awiurd made in pur> 
BBanoe of that agreement having directed the payment 
of a sum of money, the awar4 was incorporated by re- 
htion in the rule of court, and, therefore, an execution 
fi^ght isBoe, But the Court of Queen's Bench hdd, 
tfasi czeeatioai could not issue in this case. For, it was 
snd, although money awarded to be paid under a sub- 
mission that is made a role of coort may, undoubtedly, 
be eonaidered as money payable by something arising 
oat of and ingrafted on the rule, yet the difficulty that 
pceaenta itself is, that there is no definite sum of mo- 
n^ fcxpieascd to be payable by the rule itself. These 
mks aie to have the effect of judsments, which are to 
diBige the land; and, therefore, tne sum to be charved 
oi^;fat to be distinctly stated in the document which 
thas dianea the land, so that the purchasers or credit- 
QB msgr know what it is. They ought, also, to bind 
the ML at the time they^ are entered ; but, when rules 
like tUa ste made^ there is> at that time, nothing to in- 
form aaiyhedy of the charge : the amount may not be 
asoertuDsd for a year afterwards. And on these grounds, 
principafly, the court was of opinion, that the power of 
iBnix^ ezeeation on a rule most be confined to cases 
where the money payable by the role is expressed in 
the role iteelfl Lord Denman, however, observed, in 
addition, that, ^ there is no difficolty in giving efitect to 
the act of parliament as to awards, if a proper case is 
SBsde out; and that is by calling on the delinquent 
party to shew cause why ne should not pay a certain 
sam of money, pursuant to the award. If that role is 
made absolute, an execution may issue for the sum dis- 
tinctly specified in the rule so obtained." . 

In this very case, Jones v. WiUiam, when subse- 
quently befm the Conrt of Ezohequer, (vide infta). 

Mr. Baron Parke, and the other Judges of the CJourt of 
Exchequer, esopressed their entire concurrence in the 
decision of the Court of Queen's Bench in J&nes v. FTt^ 

It seems, therefore, to be settled, that, where a sum 
of money has been awarded to be paid under a snbmis* 
sbn which is made a rule of court, the money is not 
payable by tAai rule, so as to be enforced by execution 
under the 1 & 2 Vict. c. 110, s. 18, without a fiurther and 
distinct order of the court for the payment of the sum. 

It is, however, to be remarked, tnat the determination 
of the Court of Queen's Bench, in Janet v. fFilUoMU, 
has sometimes been represented, particularly in repor- 
ters' marginal notes, (tnose convenient but occssioiiBUy 
misleading breviates ), as if it amounted to a dednon, 
that execution coM not be sued out under the 1 & 2 
Vict. c. 110, s. 18, for money awarded by an arbitmtor. 
But, it will be observed, tliat Lord Denman, after deli- 
vering the opinion of Uie court, that execution could 
not be had for the money by virtue of the original rule 
of submission, proceeded to point out the course that 
might be adopted, and which the court would sanctiooy 
for making the provisions of the statute available in thia 
case, via. by obtaining a role to shew cause why the 
money should not he paid, pursoant to the award, 
which, when made absolute, would entitle the party to 
sue out execution thereon under the statute. And this 
view of the use that may be made of this enactment 
of the 1 & 2 Vict, has been followed and adopted with 
unqualified approbation by the Court of Exchequer, 
not only in the same case when afterwards before that 
court, but also in that of Eieiards v. Patterson^ (8 Mee. 
& W. 313; 5 Jur. 894), and in the still more recent 
case of I>oe d. Thompmm v. Am^^ (5 Jur. 896). In 
the last-mentioned case, the point was brought direct- 
ly before the court; and it was contended, that the 
court had no power, either at common law or under 
the statute 1 & 2 Vict. c. 110, to make an order calling 
on a party to pay a specific sum awarded by an arbitra- 
tor; that, independently of the statute, their onhr pow- 
er was to order the party to perform the award gene- 
rally ; and, in the event of his noplect or refusal, to pu- 
msh him by attachment; and that the only object of 
thestat.l &2yict. cllO, S.18, was to give to orders 
and roles of court a force and effect which they had not 
before, vis. that of judgments on which execution might 
issue; but did not confor on the courts the power of 
making any new spedes of order unknown to the then 
existing law. But the court was of opinion, that an 
order for an attachment against a party for not paying 
money presupposes a power in the court to order him 
to pay it ; and made absolute a rule for the payment of 
a sum of money awarded under a submisnon tlutt had 
been made a rule of oourt, thus riving an express and ju- 
dicial assent to thepropriety of the course suggested oy 
Lord Denman, in J^omee v. WiUianu* 


But, although execution cannot issue under the act 
on a rule of court for the payment of money, unless the 
amount be determined and specified by the rule itself, 
yet, execution may issue on a rule oraering the pay- 
ment of 0(Mte, though their amount is not specifically 
mentioned in the rule, being left to be ascertained by 
taxation by the officer of the court; and thosL where a 
submission is made a rule of court, an award for the 
payment of costs, to be ascertained by taxation, may, 
when their amount is so ascertained, be enforced by 
execution under the role, without a farther and dis- 
tinct order of the court for the payment of the sum so 

In the case of Jones v. FFtZSomf, before the Court of 
Exchequer, (8 Mee. & W. 349; 6 Jur. 895}, where the 
latter point was discussed, the principle laid down by 
the Court of Queen's Bench m the same case, to the 


TMS jurist: 

eflPeot^ thai tlie speclfie sain must appear on the face of 
the mle, was m^ in ailment, as applying also to a 
rule for the payment of costs. The obseVvations of the 
judges of the Court of Exchequer, being principally dl- 
levcted to the distinction between the eiwes of a rule 
wderfUg payment of a sum of money and one ordering 
the payment of oosts, are calculated to illustrate both, 
vad api^y almost equally to both, and will, therefore, 
TO better und^iatood^ and tend vrnve to the elucidation 
of the subject, if preserved in their original connectloui 
than if we fittem{i^ to intradnee them sepantely into 
the diacussion of the several points. 

In tha oasey then, of JoMi v» WilUami^ beibt« the 
Court of Exchequer, an action which had been com*- 
meneed by the plamtiff against the defkidant, was, by 
agreement in writing, referred to an svbitrator, who was 
to take an account between the parties, and all eosts 
Were to be paid by the parties against whom a balance 
of accounts should appear by the award to be due. The 
arbitntor having proceeded with the reference, awarded, 
that, upon the accounts referred to him, there was a 
iMiamce of a specified aatiount due from the plaintiff to 
tae defendant, which sum, together with the costs so 
Biade to abide the event of the awatd, the arbitrator di- 
ijected to he paid by the plaintiff to the defendant on A 
oertain day* The agnsement was made a rule of court \ 
aiid the coats ^^ve taxed by the Master at a certain 
sum. Mr. Baron Parke, after referring to the 18th sec- 
tion of the 1 & £ Vict. c. 110, and obser^ng, that^ accord-^ 
i|ig to the proper construction of the act, it does not ap-^ 
ply to any costs, chaiges, or expenses, except those which 
are ordered by ftW court to be paid ; and that it does not 
embrace cases in which domething is necessary to be 
done,, in crder to give the party a title to the money, 
hut inolttdee those only in which the obligation to pay 
the money ap'peata on the face of the rute, decree^ or 
order, proceeded to say i '* But, then, it is afgued, that, 
when the court orders the piyment of cotlis^ something 
must be done in order to ascertain their amount before 
eacecution can issue. No doubt that is so; but then 
Goeta are not liable to the same observation as immef^, 
aa they atand upon a peculiar footing. When the le- 
gislature mentions 'money, eosts, chaiges and ex-^ 
penses,* it means money decreed or ordered to be paid, 
together with the costs, charges, and expenses^ to be as- 
certained by the officer of tlie coUrt» That point, in-^ 
dieed, it is unnecessary to decide ; but, I am or opinion, 
tjiat^ with respect to coats, it is enough if they are aa^ 
cartained bv the ofhcor of the court, and that It is not 
neceasary that there should be any order to pay after 
they are taxed by the officer." Mr. Baron Aldenon 
esq)re8sed himself to be of the same opinion. *' With 
regaird to the ^osts, ohaiges and expenses," said the 
learned judge, *<it aetms to me, that they may be as- 
certained by the officer of the court, though not speci- 
fically mentioned in the rule pf court. All that is re- 
quired is, that the court shall order a sum of money to 
be paid ; and, if it also order eosts, that means the costs 
ascertained by the office of the court. . • . But, in 
the case of an award, it would be monstrous to say, Uiat 
any sum of monciy is payable under the order of the 
court. The order of the court there ia, that the party do 
tfubmit to the arbitmtion of A« B. ; and unless you in- 
corporate the awai^ (which is an act long subsequent) 
with the rule of courts it would be making the court 
order the payment of a sum of money, the propriety of 
which depends OH the judgment of a third party, and of 
which the court knows nothing. If such were the law, 
the court might commit tlie greatest injustice. Sup^ 
pose a submission to arbitration and on award after 
Trinity Term ; in the vacation, a writ of ca. sa. might 
issue; aitd is the paity to i-eniain in cubtody the whole 
of the vacation up to Michaelmas Term, before he can 
apply to set aside an award which may have been most 
improperly made against him? The sounder rule id 

this, that no execution should issue till the court has 
aeceHained for itself the propriety of the award, and hss 
made an order fbr the payment of the money awarded. 
And Mr. Baron Rolfe remarked, that, ** According to 
ail the writs settled by the Lord Chancellor, in pur- 
suance of the 1 & 2 Vict. c. 110, it is Assumed, that the 
amount payable is previously ascertaiti^d by the decree 
or order of the court. That appears to me to make the 
distinction pointed otit by my brothers Pttrke and Al- 
derson, vi«. that the statute having provided that a writ 
may be issued npoii an order fbr the payment of money 
and costs, it may still issue for costs When taxed by the 
officer* but that such estecution cannot possibly extend 
to the payment of any money which has not m terms 
been ascertained by the decline or order. The in^ts to 
Which I have referred were fnuned upon great deliber- 
ation ; and if there were any case in which the ohler 
for the performance of an award could be within the 
statute, ft is most probable that a wtit tot that purpose 
would be found amongst the forms given by the Court 
of Chancery." 

If, however, an arbitrator, when the <i08t8 are in his 
discretion, awards a gross sum for Costs (Which is not 
liable to taxation by the Master, Anon*^ 1 Chit. Rep, 
38; Watson, Arbit. 138)), it seems, that, consistently 
With the principle of the foregoing eases. It would be 
necessary to apply to the court for a rule tor IhiSf pay- 
ment, in order that execution may issue thei^n. 

III. RuLB Nisi in the ^nsv ImvABOBt 
We have seen, that, according to the mode of pro- 
ceeding prescribed by the Court of Queen's Bench, and 
approved by the Court of Exciheouer, the Vttle for the 
payment of a sum of money under ah aWard^ with a 
view to poceeding by execution, should be tt rule to 
shew cause only m the first instance, upon which, 
Wh^n made absolute, execution shftU issue; and sn 
Older ex parte, In such a ease, is irregtilar. For, M tt- 
marked by Mr. Baron Parke, (8 Mee. & W. 316), if it 
were otherwise, in cases of awards execution might be 
issued without nny opportunity whatever of a hearing 
being given to the party affected. This Corresponds 
with the manner of obtaining a rule for an attadhment 
to enforce an award* And not only in this, but In other 
icspects^ the rule of court; under the statute foi> the 
piymcnt of a sum awarded, is considered ae Malocens 
to an attachuient under the old law; and this aitalogy 
appeare likely to be observed in the jmiHiee relative to 
the proceedings for obtaining the rule under the statute. 
(See Mendtll v. 2>r#v//, 6 Jur. Bep. 18). 

Thus, in Rickards v. Patterson, (8 Mee. & W. 310; 
5 Jur. 894), the plaintiff having obtained an order for 
the taxation of his attoraey's bill of costs, it Was taxed 
accordingly ; but the idlooatnr was not served on the 
plaintiff in the regular way, but was sent him by the 
post, and no demand was made on him for the amonnt. 
The attorney afterwards obteined, on en ex parte appli- 
cation, an order upon the plaintiff to pay the amount 
fonnd by the Master to be due; and without Irving it 
upon the plaintiff, or giving him any notice of it, msde 
the order a rule of courts and is^ed a fi. fo. thereon 
under the 1 & 2 Vict. c. 110, s. 18. But these proceed- 
ings were set aside as irregnlar, the e<mrt being of opin- 
ion, tliat, before process is awarded against the V^V^^X 
of a party under these provisions, the same steps sfiould 
be token as would have been neeessary in a proceeding 
aoainst his person by attochmeUt; or^ at all events, he 
should have some distinct notiee of the proceedings. 
And, before this statute, no attachment could be grsnt- 
ed, in such a casis as this, without a previous personel 
service of the allocatur. 

The rule should be served personally ; but, it wss 
said by Mr. Justice Patteson, the othet day, in the 
Bail Court, (Jirdcm v. Betwkk^ 8 J«». Ref . l««)i ^

V. DnnuuB Ain> ORoluia in EftViiT. 

Before the statute 1 & 2 Vict. c. 110 came into oper- 
ation, a decree of a court of equity, unless it were for 
the land itself operated only in personam, and could 
cnl V be enforced by what is termed process of contempt, 
a^mst the party disobeying it, under which the party 
XE^ht be arrested, and a sequestration might be issueo. 
This, howeTer, bnng only a personal proceeding, abates 
by the death of the party ; and though it may be rc- 
YiTcd iipinst his personal representative, yet, unless the 
dfloee 15 for the performance of a covenant in which 
^ht heir is bound, or for the laud itself, it cannot be re* 
rived qgainst his heir; and, except in such cases, there- 
fine, cannot give to a decree in equity the same effect as 
& ju<%nient at law, in binding the real estate. But this 
dmt in the procc^ing by sequestration has, to a cer- 
tain extent, l^n remedied by the 18th section of the 1 
& 2 Viet. e. 110, which communicates the effect of a 
jod^aest in the superior courts of common law, not 
only, as we have aeen, to mles of those courts, but to 
"afi decrees and orders of Courts of equity, and all or* 
dm of the Lord Chancellor or of the Court of Review 
in matlen of bankruptcy, and all oiden of the Lord 
Chancellor in matters of lunacy, whereby any sum of 
money, or any costs, charges, or expenses shall be pay- 
sMe to any person.*' Such decrees and orders, there- 
fere, «e armed with the like remedies, and have the 
like IMiog force upon the property of the person by 
whom the money, &c., is payable, as judgments; and 
must be registered like them, in oroer to to eiiectual. 

The iOth section empowers the judges of the courts 
€f( law, equity, and bankruptcy, to issue new forms of 
writs for givin? effect to the provisions of the act. And 
in pniSDanee of this provision, forms of writs of fieri fa- 
cile, el^t, and venditioni exponas, similar to those 
adopted in the courts of common law, were promuleated 
by the Lord Chancellor, by the Orders of the 10th May, 
1899, (I Beay. App. xii. ; 3 Jur. 410), for the purpose 
of givbig the means of enforcing, by common law pro- 
cess, decrees of the courts of equity* for the payment of 
money and costs. The forms are accompanied by cer- 
tun regulations respecting them, the principal of which 
provide: That every person, to whom, in any cause or 
matter pending in the Court of Chancery, any sum of 
money, or any costs, have been ordered to be paid, shall, 
after the lapse of one month from the time when such 
order for payment was duly passed and entered, be en- 
titled by nis clerk in court to sue out one or more writ 
or wAto of fieri facias, or elegit, of the forms provided, 
or aa near thereto as the circumstances of the cases may 
reqoife. That such writs, when sealed, shall be deli- 
vered to the sheriff, or other officer, to whom the ene^ 
c^iUmni^'^ like writs issuing out of the superior courts 
of common law belongs, and shall be executed by such 
sberi^ or other officer, as nearly as may i)e, in the same 
mamier in which he does or ought to execute such like 
writs; taiA such writs, when returned by such sheriff 
or other officer, ehril be delivered to the cierks in court, 
bv whom respectively they were sued out, or be left at 
their respective seats, and shall thereupon be filed as of 
record in the office of the six clerks : and that, if it shall 
appear, %pon the return of any such writ of fieri facias, 
tfiat the sheriff or other officer has, by virtue of such 
writ, seiiBed, but not sold, any goods of the person or- 
dsisd to pay sach sum of money or costs, the person to 
whom such mun of money or costs is payable Biitrfl^ im* 

mediately after such writ, with such return, shall be 
filed as of record, be at liberty, by his clerk in court, to 
sue out a writ of venditioni exponas, in the form tto- 
vided, or as near thereto as circumstances may require. 

The mode of proceeding thus instituted, enables a per* 
son who has succeeded in establishing, in the Court of 
Chancery, his right to a pecuniary demand, to sue out 
execution for its amount, in the same manner as he 
may upon a judgment in a court of common law. 

But here, we may observe with Mr. Daniell, (2 Chan* 
oery Practice, 701 )* that the above orders and writs do 
not supersede the ordinary remedies of the court for en- 
forcing its decrees and orders; and that, in fiict, they 
are applicable only to eases in which money or costs are 
decreed or ordered to be paid by one party to another, 
and are totally inapplicable to oases where any other 
act is ordered to be done by a party. Orders or decrees 
of this latter description, therefore, must still be en- 
forced by the ordinary process of contempt. 

In QWa y. Pike. (8 Mee. & W. 228 ; and see WelU 
y. €Hbb8y 4 Jur. 1178), the Court of Excheqtier was of 
opinion, that an order of a court of equity for the pay- 
ment of money into the Bank, in the name of the AV 
countant-General, to the credit of a cause depending In 
that court, is not an order to which the effect of s judg- 
ment is given b v sect. 18 of the 1 & 2 Vict. c. 1 10. The 
case being decicfed on another ground, it was not neces* 
sary to determine that point. But it seems to be clear, 
that such an order is not within the meaning of the 18th 
section of the act. B,

\Stevms 4 Norkn.^ 

No branch of positive law is so generally interesting 
in theory, or so exciting in practice, as that of evidence. 
It is almost the only one which can be rendered at- 
tractive to an unprofessional reader. Its object l>eing 
the discovery of truth, it takes rank as a branch of ex- 
perimental philosophy; and, as it is perpetually tested 
m practice by the common sense and knowledge of 
mankind, and is concerned with the establishment of 
particular facts, and not of general truths for genend 
use, it has escaped much of that perversion fh>m tech- 
nical reasoning and sinister influences by which other 
departments of the law have suffered. To borrow the 
words of Mr. Starkie, ** however widely different codes 
may vary from each other in matters of arbitrary or po- 
sitive institution, and of mere artificial creation, the ge- 
neral means of investigating the truth of contested facts 
must be common to all. Every rational system which 
provides the means of proof must be founded on expe- 
rience and reason, on a well-grounded knowledge of 
human nature and conduct, on a consideration of the 
value of testimony, and on the weieht due to coincident 
circumstances. Here, therefore, tne object of the law 
is identified with that of pure science ; the common aim 
of each is the discovery of truth ; and all the means 
within the reach of philosophy, all the connexions and 
links, physical and moral, which experience and reason 
can discover, are thus rendered subservient to the pur- 
poses of justice." 

The subject, thus attractive in itself, has been most 
fortunate in its expositors. There are now, honourable 
rivals for public favour, two general treatises on this 
extensive and intricate branch of law, of which it is not 
too much to say, that they excel all the text-books of 
the day in the combination of leaminpf and research 
with dear method and scienttfie precision; while the 



important department which comprises the rules of evi- 
dence applicable to proceedings in equity has been 
treated with considerable ability by Mr. Gresley; and 
upon one isolated topic, that of the application of ex- 
trinsic evidence to tne inteinpretation of wills, Sir J. 
Wi^m has favoured the profession with a dissertation, 
which possesses all the merits, and is &ee from some of 
the detects, Uiat characterise the celebrated essay of 
Feame. Of the two general treatises, Mr. Starkie's 
is undoubtedly more philosophical in its reasoning, 
and more scientific and metho<ucal in the detidls of its 
arrangement than its rival ; in other respects it would 
be difficult to decide between the claims of the two 
works^ so far as thev concur in design. Mr. Phillipi>s's 
work, however, (tnat is to say the last edition, which 
was published in 1888), labours under this disadvantage, 
that it is confined to an examination of the general prin- 
ciples of evidence, and does not treat of the rules appli- 
cable to particular subjects and actions, otherwise than 
as they illustrate those general principles. Mr. Starkie, 
on the other hand, reserving the first part of his work 
chieflv for the discussion of general pnnciples, devotes 
two closely printed volumes to a digest, alphabetically 
arranged, or the rules of evidence and the proofs apph- 
cable to particular subjects and actions. It is in this 
that the great practical superiority and utility of Mr. 
Starkie's book consbts; without which, we fear, its 
merely literary and scientific merits would scarcely 
have guned for it the popularity which it enjoys. Un- 
der the alphabetical arrangement of this second part we 
find, besides the particuliur heads of Assumpsit, Bank- 
ruptcy, Bills of Exchange, &c., many titles of a general 
application, but which conveniently admit of being dis- 
cussed by themselves. Such are the titles Admissions, 
Collateral Facts, Confidential Communications, Custom, 
Death-bed Declarations, Estoppel, Statute of Frauds, 
Inspection, Limitations, Parol Evidence, Prescription, 
Presumptions, Stamp, &c. 
. The new edition has been long expected and long de- 
layed ; but the care which appears to nave been bestowed 
on it, and the peat additions it has received, are some 
excuse for the lateness of its appearance. Among the 
subjects of importance which appear to have received 
particular attention, we may mention — Assumpsit, 
Bankruptcy, Bills of Exchange, Distress, Ejectment, 
Parol Evidence, Partners, Insurance (under the title 
Policy), Sheriff, Trespass, Trover, Vendor and Vendee, 
Will. Under the last title, Mr. Starkie has treated 
many of the cases relating to the parol explanation of 
written instruments, which, we think, might have 
found a better place in the general discussion of the 
rules as to parol evidence ; but we are aware that it is 
a common (though we think unfounded) opinion, that 
the rules of evidence in aid of the interpretation of wills 
are different from those which apply to instruments 
inter vivos. 

Our remiuning space might have been advantsgeously 
devoted to a notice of some of the interesting points 
which have arisen upon the recent statutes ana deci- 
sions, but the conduct of our contemporary. The Law 
Magazine, has furnished us with matter of a less at- 
tractive kind. The Law Magazine was formerly a well- 
conducted and agreeably written periodical, free from 
offence, and, in spite of some wild and flashy specu- 
lations by which t^ros were occasionally dazzled and 
older lawyers astonished, was not altogether useless in 
the business of the profession; although its chief at- 
traction lay in the very spirited legal biographies, from 
a pen which seems to be now laid aside, or devoted to 
otner objects. Of its present merits or fortunes, we 
hear little ; but we are sorry, for old acquaintance' sake, 
to see it disgraced by being made a vehicle for such 
shabby and dishonest attacks as that upon Mr. Starkie, 
which appeared in its last number. A critic may some- 
tiJDPiOB he led abng§t unconsciously into injusUce by per- 

sonal antipathy; but Mr. Starkie's amiable and unpre* 
tending character would be the last to occamon any de- 
lusion of that kind, and the article in question bears 
such internal evidence of conscious falsehood, that its 
writer cannot be allowed even the poor excuse of per* 
sonal pique. It is obviously an interested and merce- 
nary misrepresentation, — intended, not to protect the 
public, but to damage a successful, and therefore ob- 
noxious rival*. As such, we should not have been dis- 
Ced to notice it; but the publishers of Mr. Starkie's 
k, naturally feeling indignant at this attack upon 
their property, and upon an author for whom they feel 
great respect, have requested us to look into the matter, 
and, if we should detect the knavery, to expose it. 
We see no reason for refusing to do them that justice, 
or for attempting to conceal that we do it at their re- 

?uest Mr. Starkie's complaint has already appeared, 
ante, p. 35). 

It would be an excellent arrangement, both for pub- 
lishers and readers, if authors could be persuaded to com- 
plete the whole of their manuscript before sending any 
portion of it to the printer. The plan would then be 
perfectiy digested, the references accurately made, and, 
by reason ot its rapid progress through tne press, the 
work would comprise the latest information, without 
the incumbrance of an appendix. But, alas! authors 
are not so tractable; they can no more keep their 
"copy" by them, than boys can keep halfpence; and 
never rightiy know what they have done, until thev see 
it in print. Whatever may be the cause, books seldom 
pass through the press with one fifth of the speed which 
the mere processes of composing and correcting the proo& 
would allow of; and publishers generally find the delay 
to be greater, in proportion to the ability and learning of 
their authors. The more they love their labour, the 
more they dwell upon it. Mr. Starkie's work appears 
to have been nearly three years in the press. The ne- 
cessity of printing a copious appendix, like that which 
was published with the former edition, arranged in the 
order of the text, and containing the latest cases, seems 
to have been foi-eseen ; and Mr. Starkie, having that re- 
medy in reserve, was even less anxious to expedite bis 
work, than he might otherwise have been. The policy 
or convenience of publishing the book before the Ap- 
pendix and the Index could be prepared, we think very 
(luestionable ; but as no one is obliged to purchase it in 
its incomplete state, it is not easy to see what quarrel 
can be picked, either with author or publisher, on thst 
score. What advantage a dishonest critic can take of 
fiuch an irregularity, we have, unfortunately, an oppor- 
tunity of perceiving. 

The general charge brought against Mr. Starkie b^' 
the Law Magazine, besides " twmberlets minor rei>eti' 
tions, errors^ and omissions," is, ** the total omission, 
OTy at best, most careless insertion of large and important 
subjects connected with the law of evidence." There 
is a great difference between a charge of " total omis- 
sion" and one of <* careless insertion." The former 
might be capable of demonstrative refutation — ^the Iwr 
ter, being matter of d^ree and of o{inion, could. not be 
BO easily disproved, and serves to fall back upon, when 
the graver charge is questioned. It is as if one. should 
say to the reviewer : " You are a conscious liar ^^' 
lumniator, or, at best, an ignorant fellow." If M.r. 
Starkie had been guilty of " totally omitting" one sm- 
ffle large and important subject, would not the reviewer 
nave been too happy at the opportunity of saying so 
unequivocally, without this miserable prevarication! At 
the outset, he confesses himself too great a ^^^^^^ 
his task. The same sweeping charge is insinuated at tne 
conclusion of the article, in these words: " ^^^?%q 
sugg est, that a corrigenda should be added, and tosttg^ 
"*"Wc trust that it is needless to disclaim the slightest rrfer- 
ence to Mr. Phillipps, or his able editor, Mr, Amos, m tww 



aathor ahonld hATe time to nuke ample earreeUo nt and 
idditkuu. Let the mot$ maocuraie pages be boldly can- 
celled, and their contents carefully remodelled." Here 
is ptonuse of enongh tainted matter to feast the most 

S critic. Bat before we examine the particular 
that hare been selected^ it may be worth while 
to cite soother general charge, which betrays the animus 
of tbe article : ¥re mean, that of ** the inferiority of the 
jiaper, and the badness and variety (see pp. 722, 723, 
Sod ToL) of the type." The book, to be sure, is not 
goi vp in the style of an annual, but the pa]^r is fully 
egoal to the aren^ of law books, and certamly better 
(toman unezoeptionable standard) than that of Uie 
Law Mapsine; while the typomphy is, as Messrs. Han- 
sM im always is. ezoellent; the type evidently 
new, and well worked. The single instance of ** va- 
netf " refiened to by the reviewer, illustrates, we hope, 
notbing wone than nis ignorance. There is no variety 
of trpe; Ini pp. 722 and 723 appear, bpr the binder^s 
mail at the foot^ to be a cancel, nom which, in order to 
joakeitMoi for the added matter, the leadi between the 
fines hare been removed, just as is occasionally done 
vitb tlie leading articles of Thb Jurist, and other pe- 

Thii blanch of Mr. St«rkie*s work which relates to 
the competency of witnesses is first fastened on. The 
teit (YoL 1, p. 119) stands thus:«-<« 4thly, a witness 
tr iBDompetent where the record would, if his party suc- 
ceeded, be evidence of some matter of fact to entitle him 
to a leeal advantage, or repel a lesal liabilit^r." The 
oonise Mr. Starkie had Idd aown and was pursuing in in- 
troducing this proposition, was, first, to consider the ques- 
tum of incompetency, independently of the enactment of 
the icceot statute, (3 & 4 Will. 4, c.42, BS.26and 27); 
ttdthen to shew in what cases the statute restores com- 
pc^ocf ; and it is while he is treating the subject in- 
depeadently of the statute, that he lays down this fourth 
FopoatiQii. The reviewer, however, deems the oon- 
■doitioo of this fourth class of cases to be unnecessary; 
^^fcum «it is quite dear that the statute embraces all 
OKs under this head ;" in other words, that a witness 
is made competent by the statute, whenever the record 
▼Dold, if his party succeeded, be evidence of some fact 
to entitle him to a legal advantage, or to repel a legal 
^iahilitf . TUs position is erroneous. There are many 
cam in which competency would not be given by the 
itatnte to a witness within the fourth cliuss. An in- 
■tUKe ia given by Mr. Starkie, in the case of Stuart v. 
^^m, (1 Stark. Ev. 125; 1 M. & R. 472), where a 
vitneas, who was called upon the trial of an issue from a 
court of equity to support a modus, and thouffh not a 
puty, vet being interested in the decree as evidence of 
thenght, was rejected, on the ground that the decree 
fcpnded on the record would be evidence for him, not- 
vithitaadinff any indorsement on the record. From 
the second objection taken in the same case, and acceded 
^ V Mr. Buon Alderson, it appears also, that there is 
T?J P^ doubt, whether a witness within Mr. Star- 
w faiirth class is competent, where the record, al- 
^<n2gh it would not itself be evidence for or against 
^1% establiahes, or tends to establish, a practice oene- 
jjciaJ or hurtful to him, as evidence. Witnesses within 
the ibnrth class are also, according to the later autho- 
n»a» (overruling JVheat v. Orahamy 7 Sim. 61), in- 
competent in courts of equity, notwitlistanding the sta- 
^te* (See Daviea v. Morgan, 1 Beav. 406 ; Holden v. 
««ars, Id, 446). But, whether this were so or not, 
*. Starkie's mode of treating the subject is equally un- 
"^pwcbable and free from ambiguity. 
. The Law Magazine proceeds:—" Two Nisi Prius de- 
caona are then cited, (Vol. 1, p. 196), which were 
oterruled in Feosiaiu v. Legh, (2 Mee. & W. 419) ; but 
^recent cases ofBtnoman v. TFiUia, (3 Bing. N. C. 
^); KnifJU V. Woore, (7 C. & P. 268); Groom v. 

SUere v. Carwardmey (Id. 570) ; IMkuan t. Ferreda^^ 
(Id. 762) ; and Wed^iwood r. HarO^, (laAdol. & £11. 
619), which all, more or less, illustrate the practical 
working of the statute, are whoUjr omitted. We may 
here observe, that a few pages might with profit have 
been bestowed in pointing out instances where wit- 
nesses, though no longer oompetent on the ground of the 
admisaibility of tiie verdict, might still be held so, as in- 
terested in the event of the suit.'* 

£very reader of the first sentence of the above ex- 
tract must infer, that Mr. Starkie has cited the over- 
ruled Nisi Prius cases, and has omitted Yeomame t. Legh. 
The reviewer does not dare to say so, though he is not 
ashamed to insinuate it, with the book open before him^ 
at the very page where they are dted ae overruled by 
thai eaee; but, lest this ingenious fraud should be too 
easily detected, the reader is referred to p. 196 of Mr. 
Starkie's work, nearly 100 pages beyond the passage ac- 
tually intended. Two of the five cases charged to have 
been omitted, are to be found in the work ; and we may 
here observe, that nine other cases, the omission of 
which is chained in another part of \h» review, are all 
to be found in Mr. Starkie's book, in the proper places, 
namely, Dueiworth v. Harrison^ Boye v. Anoelly Same* 
hmy V. Matihewi, Laweon v. LamgUjfy Wamiefe v. 
JS^arpOy Willia t. Laagridge^ Aberervmiie v. jHiJtman^ 
NoweU V. Damee, and Bt^nHm v. Cattle. But, as to 
these charges of omissions, it is obvious enough, that & 
writer cannot be expected to cite every case that the re- 
porters have chosen to record, even upon those subjects 
which fall directly and distinctly within the scope of 
the work, much leas upon those collateral subjects 
which he does not profess to treat fully. A 1ml posi- 
tion is not rendered more correct or more useful by cit- 
ing twenty cases than b^ citing one. If any one would see 
how disagreeable and inconvenient a text book may be 
made by such superabundant citation, let him turn to 
Mr. Ram's learned Treatise on Assets, a work of great 
merit, but much disfigured by this fault. It is the part 
of a text- writer to select leading cases from the mass of 
self-evident and identical decisions with which the recent 
abuses of reporters have bnrthened the profession. The 
accumulation is already so enormous, that no treatise,un- 
less its bulk were as unlimited as that of Viner's Abridg- 
ment, could contain them all. We have no doubt that 
all the cases of any importance, which were not pub- 
lished when Mr. Starkie^s book was going throngh the 
press, or which escaped his notice, will be included in 
the Appendix, which, as there must be such an impedi- 
ment, may as well be large as smalL The reviewer could 
not, in the ftce of the notice in the first volume, and 
of the Appendix of 226 pages to the former edition, be 
ignorant that this was intended. To return to the subject 
of competency: the few pages which the reviewer de- 
nderates to point out when witnesses may still be held 
incompetent as interested in the event of the suit, are 
those very pages which he has already misrepresented. 
The author having first exphuned and classified the 
cases where witnesses were moompetent before the stfr« 
tute, and then stated the cases in which the statute re- 
moves the incompetency, has necessarily shewn in what 
cases it remains. 

The next, and the only chai^ of all which would 
be of any consequence, even if all were true, is, that 
the New Rules of Pleading, limiting the effect of the 
general issue, and circumscribing tne species of evi- 
dence that may be proved under it, are passed over al- 
most without comment. Will any one believethat Mr. 
Starkie has been guilty of such gross neglect ? The pas- 
sage, italics and notes of admiration included, runs thus : 
** Great was our surprise and disappointment, when, on 
looking to the head < Rules of Court,' vol. 3, p. 979, 
we found the New Rules of Pleading copied out vei> 
batim, and just Mrss ouea, firom the 9th vol. of Messra. 
C;anington & Payne's Raporta;, exphmatoiy of their 



operation ! !" The tevlewer ^as here contriTed to be 
guilty of something still more mean and dlflgraceful than 
a direct falsehood, and yet the letter of the tmth is not 
infringed. The title << Rules of Court" contains no 
more than the reviewer describes it to contain, and it 
would hare been a gross violation of method, as he well 
knows, if it had contained more. Mr« Starkie has, of 
course, discussed the rules in detail, wiUi refersnce to 
numerous authorities, under the several heads of As- 
sumpsit, Case, Covenant, Debt, Detinue, Negligence, 
&c. ; and it is impossible to look at those heads, with- 
out seeing that he has done so. The head, '^ Rules of 
Court," was obviously only ersated in order to collect 
the rules together for the purposes of reference. 

The reviewer then takes np the subject of Variances, 
and, alluding to the enactment of the Stdrd section of the 
stat* 3 & 4 Will. 4, c. 42, relating io amendment of im- 
material variances, says, that Mr. Starkie ''contents 
himself with referring, in something less than two pages 
of notes, to a few oases on the statute, the lat^ of 
which was decided more than five years back. All of 
tliese too, almost without exception, are to be found, 
and in the $ame order a$ ih^ are taken by Mr. Starkie^ 
in the last edition of Mr. Phillipps's Trsatise, published 
in 1898." An impudent insinuation that Mr. Starkie 
has pilfered the matter for his new edition from Mr. 
Philiipps^s work. The '' few" cases cited m the note re- 
ferred to, and the order in which they are cited are as 
follows : " Hanbwry v. EUa^ Parry r. JMrhura^ Doe r. 
ErringUm^ Pullen y. Stymour^ John v. Curriey WaUnne 
V. Morgan^ Cooper v. WhUehureh^ Adame v. Power^ 
Hemming v. Parry ^ Mash y. Denham^ Ivey v. Yaung^ 
Party v. Fairhursty Doe v. Edwards^ Howell v. Thomas^ 
Hill v. Streety Frankum v. Earl of Falmouth^ Quest v. 
Mwes, Jenkins V. Trtloar^ Lejeunev. Dennett^ and Sheers 
y^ PhiUf," The cases cited in Mr. Phillipps's work, are 
the foilowinpf, and in the following order: — Jenkins 
V. Treloary Hanbuty v. Ella, Pony v. Fairhursif Doe 
v. Edwards^ Hemming v. Parry, Mash y« Dtnham, 
Howell V. Thomas, Ivey r. Young, Doe v. Errington, 
John V. Gurrie, Adams v. Power, Cooper v. WkUehouse, 
Watkins v. Morgan, Hill v. Street, Frankum v. Earl of 
Ihlmouth, and Quest v. Elwes. Certainly a most re- 
markable identity of citation and arrangement ! 

Mr. Starkie is next arraigned for not having stated 
all tlie decisions upon the recent Statute of Limitations 
which are to be round in the Indexes. Considering 
that the majority of them have not the slightest con- 
nexion with the subject of evidence, we should have 
been rather surprised to have met with them in Mr. 
Starkie^s book. In the same spirit it is elsewhere la- 
mented, that the whole of Bum's Justice is not to be 
found under such titles as Bastardy, Affiliation, &c. 

In treating of Prescription, Mr. Starkie has commit- 
ted three capital felonies, of none of which shall we at- 
tempt to acquit him, but rather shall confess ourselves 
accomplices after the fact in the second of them. First, 
he has treasonably allowed the words " less objectiona- 
ble" to be printed instead of ^'unobjectionable;" se- 
condly, he atheistically opines, that the recent statute 
has not supeiBeded the occasional necessity or conve- 
nience of pleading a non-existing grant or a prescrip- 
tive right; and thirdly, he has, of malice aforethought, 
cited Mr. Baron Parke's admirable and vidnable judg- 
ment in Bright v. JValker, well knowing that the learned 
judge has therein alluded with approbation to what Mr. 
Starkie said in a former edition of his treatise. Fie, 
Mr. Starkie! 

In the next place, and to conclude, for we are weary 
of this stuff, Mr. Starkie has not brought in the crimi- 
nal statutes of July, 1687. Again we say, we should 
have been surprised to meet with them in a digest of 
proofs. They have varied the punishment of several 
offences, but the proofs requisite for convicting parties 
charged with them Remain as before. However, u con- 

nexion with ^eae stataies^ ltappettf8tltatMr«Sttikie 
has committed an oversight in not alteriK his deini- 
tion of burglar^-^the time within which mi ofeiics 
may be committed being no longer re^^ulated by the

These are all of the ^ graver chamt," from which the 
character of the aeoond division of the eritiqne^ which 
is devoted to " minor" errors and fiinlts of etjie^ may be 
divined. We may ^are onr readers anr fnfther com- 
ment — ^the imputations upon Mr. Starkie's charicttr 
have been sufficiently reftited ; as to thai of the critic, 
we fear, if we do not mistake the pea, that it Is past

Monday t Feb. 28. 

Lord Brotigham bid en the table a BiU for the BMbM- 
ment of Local Courts, which he stated to be similar to the one 
introdaoed by him eight or niae years ago. His Lerdshipvu 
aware, that the late I^rd Chancellor had expressed an inteatioii 
of bringing in a Bill for the Kstablishmeot of Coanty Coorto; 
but that Bill would fall short of what he (Lord Brougham) fro- 
posed to effect. For example, his noble and learned fnend 
proposed to extend the jurisdiction of County Courts, in mat- 
ters of debt, from cases of 40«. to 20/. ; and they were also to 
be made available for purposes of bankruptcy and insoltency 
cases. His (Lord Brougham's) bill would also give to the 
Local Countv Courts jurisdiction in all matters of £bC of 20/. ; 
but he would go beyond that, and give tkett power to try all 
actions of tort, or asMult and battery, of libel, and of aedoe- 
tion; of fraudulent bankruptcy cases t and, in fimt, of sU per- 
sonal actions, provided the damages sought to be recovered did 
not exceed 50/. There was another, aiMl most important part 
of the measurei which he would retain, namel|', that the Jooges 
of the County Courts should have a voluntary jurisdiction uiao* 
tions to any amount, where consent of both parties was given 
in writing. Those parties who consented might have justice 
administered in actions to any amount at, he might say, their 
own door. There was a part of the former bill which be would 
also propose to retain. He meant the clause of reooncUemeut, 
whicn bad been productive of so mudh advantage in preventing 
litigation wherever it had been tried. He might meatioii, that, 
in one country, not that in which it had been first applied, 
but one in which it had worked exceedingly weU, the klngdosi 
of I>enmark, its effects had been so adutary* that, oat of 
31,000 causes entered for hearing, 21.000 had been settled by 
this clause of reconcilement, thus saving the partiBs a great 
deal of tedious litigation, and a vast amount of expense. Tbit 
clause he would retain in his present bill; and, in fact, be did 
not propose to make any material alteration, save in the 19th 
section, which related to Cottrts of Request. His Lordship 
added, that the bill had the approbation of the Commissioner! 
of Legal Inquiry. 

The Lord Chancellor said, that it was his intention to lay on 
the table, in a few days, a Bill havhig the same oliject as that of 
his noble and learned friend. There would be, then, three 
Bills on the same subject before the Hoase, hiclading thst of 
Lord Cottenham. 

Lord Cempbeil hoped, that, before the present sesskm dosed, 
some measure would be passed for establishing improved Low 
Courts. This was the only country in Europe that was with* 
out such Courts. It was true there were County Courts, but 
they bad fidlen into desuetude. 

Tuesday t March 1. 
Lord Campbell said be had prepared three Bills ^or the con- 
sideration of their Lordships, and he would then state bnefly 
their nature and object ; reserving to himself to enter more into 
detail respecting them, at a future period. His objects were : 
firstly, tohnprovo the administratiohof justice hi that Houses* 
a Court of Appeal, in tiie last resort ; secondly, to alter tiie p^ 
sent system of appeal to the Judidsl Committee of ^rl^ 
Council ; and, thirdly, to reform tiie admhiistratioa of Jitw<^ 
hi the Coast of Chneery.

ecTf* ftia lUldfthip said, tiiat the bill of hia noble and learned 
friaidt (JLard Gettenhftm), irMch had lately come into opera- 
tlsBi had been aCfeeaded by thoM resalts which he had felt 

t VoaU flow ftom it. In November last, when the bill 
caae iito operaftieii« there were upwards of 500 cauaea waiting 
far hawiagtf and tbat atate of things had eontiaacd for a oonsi- 
desidUe p^ikt^ Since November a30 new oausea had been set 
dewn, aial[ii%« la all, 7dO caoaes In arrear for triaL New< in- 
Jariartii i a tf» aew eaaaei as well aa the old ones, there were 
only Utt aanaea is avretff. The increase of buahieas, aa had 
hen i aii e ip a tad , was very conatderable ; it was no leas than 
libiity peroent., exdaaive of ttose eausea tbat Were not yet ripe 
fail I ■lag. Tke nudn question, however, was the appeals. At the 
preaeai naaaonti there were not more tlnn twenty «four affpeals ; 
>nd he was aatiafied, that when the business fell regularly into 
1(9 wrdiiiaii ahaniiel9> tliere would not be more than fifteen 
Of tveaiy aypcala each year. Aa to the objection^ tbat an 
apfol. from the CbaneeUor to the Chancellor waa unwise, 
that objactknif he apprehended, was founded on inattention 
to the weight and impertaiioe of the judicial character ; he 
(tte Lord Chancellor) would undertake to say, that, when a 
eaaae caaae before a judge, either on reheariuff or appeal, he 
^iMld look Witti even more cAution to the considerations which 
ktf iadttaieed his previous judgment, than if it had been the 
jadgBieiit of inodier. But, besides this, the Lord Chancellor 
<ild not iit on appeals alone ; he had the aid of other noble and 
lettndd Lordi, aM the decisions come to were not the decisions 
ef tile Lord Chancellor, but had the benefit of the most careful 
tB Bftht^litl l u B bf tile other noble and learned Lords. With re- 
pkt tA tMMffidil CoBlihittee of the Privy Council, they were 
dM Hjpttt to abdDih it, thoui^h it was o^ a fern yann tfnee 

ther had thotght fit to extend and oonaCrKdate ft. The oonsti- 
tutfon of that tribune was admirably fitted to deal with the 
questions brought before it— questions embracing avast variety 
of Foreign Law, European and Oriental ; there were the judges 
of England to advise on English Law ; the Equity judges for 
questions of Equity ; there were the judges of the Eccleslasti- 
cial Courts to decide on matters arisang out of the Ecclesiastical 
Law ; and judges of the Colonial Courts who were able to give 
advice on Oriental Law. There was not the alleged difiSculty 
of bringing this tribunal together. But the strongest argument 
against the alterations proposed by his noble and learned friend 
was, that the Judiekl Committee, as at present constituted^ 
had given unmixed satisfaction. There was now scarcely any 
arrear. There were only seven m eight appeals standing for 
hearing ; and there would not have been even that arrear, but 
for certain Indian appeals #hlch had stood over, because no 
one appeared to prosecute them. With regard to the appellate 
jurisdiction of that House, there never was a period when there 
waa less necessity for interfering with it, m there were no lesa 
than four learned Lords who had filled the highest judicial sta- 
tion« who every day devoted their attention to appeals ; and he 
hoped that the House would not now cither surrender their 
jurisdicticm, or anifer those ^teratfc}ns in it, whddi would' 
ultimately draw danger upon it, or expose it to loee tbat re- 
spect and revarenoe whiob sosae penone wave desirous of un- 

Lord CoitetiAmm approved the principle of his noble and. 
letmed ftiead's measure, so for aa regarded the necessity of a 
permanent head in the Court of Chancery and in the Judicial 
Committee of the Privy CoUnoil, an object which be (Iiord 
Cettenham) had always had in view. But his Lordship thought 
it an unfortttnato tioM to make such a propoaitkm, when an Act 
had recently passed for making aa alteration in the establish- 
ment of the Court of Chancery, in order to dispose of the ar- 
rears; and tiiat experiment had not yet been foUy tried. He 
thought, that, whilst the experiment was going on, it would not 
be wmO to interfere with it, and to nado fai February what had' 
been done in September* 

Lord Brougham thought, that many of the objections of hia 
noble and learaed friead (Lord Campbell) were unavoidable, 
and founded on the necessary state of things in an appellate ju- 
riadiotion, and the dilBoulty of obtaining a sufficient number of. 
Judges well qualified to deal with the questions. He thought 
it a good ground of objection to such a Court aa that proposed 
by lui noble and learned friend, tbat the Judges would sit as 
Judges of appeal only« A due admixture of Judges, not con-, 
fined to the exereise of appellate functions, but who were, on 
the contrary, aaquainted with the procticsd business of the 
subordinate Courts, was desirable. As to the want of an 
efiieient head to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council, 
that, it was true, was an evil to some extent, but it waa more 
apparent than real, and did not lead to so many practical in- 
conveniences as might be supposed* Each of the J ndges of the 
Court took a oauae in succession, a practice which was found 
to be attended with beneficial results. Then, as to the want of 
an efficieBft bar, that was an evil which no cbanga in the appel- 
late jurisdiction could remove; for, to the extent to which it 
existed, Us Lordship ^ewed, tbat it depended on the great va* 
riety of cases brought before the Court on appeal. The same 
bar would not attend on appeals from Scotland that would at- 
tend on appeals from the Court of Chancery, or from the £c- 
clesiastieal or Foreign Courts. He should wish to see the 
measures on the table before he made up his mind; but, as at 
present advised, he thought that some of the evils, which his 
noble and learned firiena had adverted to, existed rather in 
theory than in practice; and others, he believed, were quite in- 

Lord Campbell shortly replied; and the Bills were laid on 

the table. 

Monday, Feb. 28. 

DtssBKTKRs' Marriaoes' (Irkland) Bill. — Ou the or- 
der of the day for Ae committal of this Bill being read, the 
House went into CoiUmittee. After a short discussion of some 
of the ckittses, the Bill was agreed to. The House resumed, 
and the report was Ordered to be brought up on Tuesday (1st 

Thunday, Mafth 3. 

Lord Mahan moved for and obtained leave to bring hi a Bill 
to attend the Law relating to Copyright. The ^iresent mea- 



sore would, in many remcts, be the lame as the Bill broii|rht 
in in the last Session of Fftrliament. It would differ, however, 
in this : that it proposed to make the term twenty-five years 
after the death of the anthor, instead of sixty ; and he proposed 
to give the Privy Council a power of interference to prevent 
the suppression of a useftil work by the friends of a deceased

With M§iud to the £n^ it is pretty well known, 
ftat theeodsting prsetkiB in hinaey is such, as to make 
thepnIecllbiL of the Conrt of Chaaceiy wholly inac- 
where there is any opposition to the commis- 
t to' penons almost in afflnent ciioumstanoes. 
Huts iMMtic f cl BH i iiB a moderate fortune, is not suffi- 
dsMt tojwtfljr his friends in seeking for him the guar- 
of the Court of Chancery; he must possess 
f CTaeeiding a mere competence. An estate, for 
^ not emeeding 9M. in snnual value, would be, 
ia tD piohability, so deeply inyaded by the expenses 
atteadnit on a oommisrion of lunacy at all opposed, and 
the sohseqnent ssfe but cosily administmtion of Chan- 
eery, as bamly to leare an adequate maintenance for 
titt hnatic.. ¥lai, there b the application to the Court 
farteoBnniaBon; there is then the inquiry before the 
CoanaoneErs, the duration of which it is scarcely 
posiftle to foresee,. and the expense of which depends

JaiicB are paid by foes, according to the number of 
^i|rt oconi|ned. When the inquiry is concluded, and 
fte return made, and the lunatic fidrly brought within 
tke prstectioa of Chanceiy, there is then a continual 
nd not inconsid«rah1e source of expense in the neces- 
■ty of a petition to the Court, and a reference to the 
Uiitary npon every the most trifling transaction, which 
'Amaj be requisite for the Committee to enter into in 
n^et to the management of the lunatic's estate. We 
WBfe|iAdeod'Wem«rB8foly assert, that, where the

eery could never be piuiJMiiiji ad >f is i d , milesB in the 
plainest possible case, if tfaeluaatie^pKopiBEtyismnoh 
under 10,000^./ and we know, that it is every day!s 
pi»daM, for the fiiaMb of penooaof smdl property, and 
unsound mind, to manage thamand thor pRxpaity in 
the best way that they can, subject to all the ineoBVBB^ 
enees aridng from the virtual inoqMMStty of.thelmaAiey 
rather than to i^ply to a jurisdiction which would pro- 
tect the estate at the price of its total ahsorption. 

There can be no question, that^Jidiere a person iS| by 
mental disease^ rendered incapable of mani^jng his pro- 
perty, it must be desirable, that the Law should pro- 
vite foritasafomsnagement^ inslsadof leaviiigit to the 
vduntaiy assistance of friends and relations, with all 
the difficulties attendant upon the l^gal ownership and 
apparent authority remaining vested in a perspn in- 
capabre of rational voUtibn. It is equally unquestion- 
able, that the protection of the Law, to be worth hav- 
ing, must be accessible at such a price as will not reduce 
the fortune of the applicuit below the point of an ade- 
quate subsistence, having regard to his habits and sta- 
tion in life. Any measure, therefo(re, tending to dimin- 
bh, in any degree, the expense of obtaining for lunatics 
the protection of Chancery, must be looked at, we ap- 
prehend, as desirable; provided only it be not incon- 
sistent with the due and sufficient exercise of the juris- 

The Lord Chancellor's plan is obviously based on the 
principle of chaiging upon the State a portion of the ex- 
pense of protecting lunatics. Whether this principle be, 
in the abstract, just or unjust it is now unnecessary to in- 
quire, as by for the greater part of the expense of adminis- 
tering justice stands, and has always stood, on precisely 
the same footing. And, if it be proper that the expense 
of judicial inquify into any matter of litigation, as, for 
instance, whrasr #. testator was or was not uuu^^tK 
the time be aadahkwilV flheiad be borne by ttaAite^ 



there seems no reason why itbhbuld^hot be eqtidly pro^ 
per, that the State ahoiild beat the expento of an in- 
quiry, whether or net a tivilig penon is or id not in- 
sane, and is or is not to Be committed to the care of the 
law. Whether two pbrdianent bommisdibners will be 
incapable, as su^esled by Lord Gottenham, of perform* 
lug the duties required of them, is matter of detail. 
The other objection, however, taken by the same leartt- 
fA Lerd, ttbt it will not be prudent to give up the coil- 
trol of the Masters in the management of lunatics' es- 
tates, is matter of substance as well as of detail ; because 
it is precisely the control of the Masters tiiat forms one 
of the elements of the present oppressive costliness of a 
•CautooA^ administration of i lunatic's estate. For 
our^lv^i WO can see no peduliar sanctity in a Mas- 
ters officei and no pemiliar virtue in the mode of in- 
quiry theMin praotised* The great desideratum for tke 
^Mttetion of the lunatic is. the superintending control 
of the Loi4 ChaooeUor; and, provided that remains, 
m Lord Lyndhurst's bill contemplates, we cannot see 
why Commissidnirs, aeting und^t the authority of the 
hnd Ohaaeellor, should not deal as safely with all in-^ 
quiries eoneerhlng a lunatic's estate, as a Master in 
Chanoery; That they would deal with it at less cost, 
and with less delays there (cannot be very mucfh doubt. 
Supposing; faoweveir, the objeetioa wdl feanded, the

no soitd gtound fbr anticipating^ that he will not apeak 
th« tt^th in matters, of course, unconnected with his

considerations of justice ; or, in other wdrds, in which he 
is influenced by motives of pure selfishness, unchecked 
by any consideration of the rights of others. It is 
obvious, that a witness of such a character can have, 
in the absence of external inducements addressing 
thehis^lves td his passions or interest, no greater bias 
towards falsehood than he has towards truth. With- 
out, therefore, hearbg him, or without collateral evi- 
dence of bts interest or wishes in regard to the result of

is, it proceeds on the asaamption, that a party so in^fst-

at least, towards partiality, that his testimony oaght 
liot to be taken. Now, in asbuniing tiiis^ we are whoUy

igiioiBnty in hcij of all those collateral circumstancesy 
vithont which we cannot ascertain whether the interest 
of the witness amoonts, in reality, to a bias at all. 

Then ib, nndonbiedly also, great practical difficulty in 
the ^plication of the role, in ascertaining what is snch an 
biterest as shall operate in exclusion of testimony ; and 
one of the rules adopted, that any certain interest will 
» operate, but that an uncertain interest will not, has 
led to some palpable absurdities ; because it is obvious, 
that there may be interests of great value legally un- 
certain, but mozally certain, which might have a great 
cffiset in giving a bias; while, on the other h(md, there 
may be Interests certain in the law, and utterly value- 
las in &ct» which could not, by possibility, bias any 
raan*t mind* But^ in truth, it would be quite imprac- 
ticable to fix any standard of quantity, or nature of in- 
terest, which could operate so as to render the applici^ 
tioa of the rule rational; because, from the infinite va- 
riety of men's characters and social positions, it probably 
never will happen, that the same kind or quantity of 
inteitst will have the same force in the minds of two 
diioent witnesses; and hence it must be, in every new 
csK, impoanble to know, whatever be the degree of ap- 
parent interest, whether the whole foundation of the 
doctrine, namely, the existence of a paramount bias, 
can be jostly presumed. To admit the evidence of in- 
fiunoQS or interested witnesses to go to a jury, unaccom- 
panied by any observations from persons of superior 
judgment and acuteness, might, no doubt, be very dan- 
gexoQs; but there can be no danger in letting such evi- 
denee go to a jury, under the direction of an experienced 

l%e Doetrime and Pradihe ofEquitVy or a Coneiae Out- 
Ime^ Sfc. By G. Goldsmith, A.M., Barrister at Law. 
Seemd EdUUm, [Saunders ^ Benning.\ 

It was said of an eminent singer, that she was the 
fint of her style, but her stvle was not the first; and 
something of^the same kind may be said of the work 
before na. Of its class, it is a very good one, but the 
dasB is one which we hold in great abhorrence, and 
ooold wish to see wholly annihilated. It has become 
the ftahlon of late years to popularize every thing; to 
employ all the ingenuity of which ingenious writers are 
capable, to abridge and dilute all learning; to sketch 
outlines of sciences, and aim at givinc^ what are c^ed 
Senenl notions. Legal literature has Been as much in- 
undated as any other branch of literature with works 
of tkus daaa ; and the present is another of the attempts 
to Ave all labour and difficulty to those to whom the 
ezeraae of labour, and the habit of meeting and con- 
qoeriog difficulty, are most essential qualifications. 

F there be any science, in which knowledore to be 
tusefhl must be particular, it is the science of the law. 
It i% it is true, governed generally by certain broad prin- 
ciples; bot Uie exceptions are so numerous, and the dis- 
tinctions so incessant and so fine, that law may be said 
to be made up of details. A brief outline of any large 
'portion of it, such as the doctrines and practice of equity, 
IS, of necessity, an incomplete, if not a false representa- 
^n of the law. It is like a map without the moun- 
tasQs and cross roads; and though it may be correct as 
fiff ai it gc«8, it tends, on the whole, more to mislead 
than ib^de. We object to works of this kind, also, 
becaaw fiMy are apt to give to tbe student aa ttuwfaole* 
3 " * 

some appetite for the facile; a sort of dilettante spirit, 
that would make an elegant play of that, which, to 
be mastered, must sooner or later be grappled with in 
the spirit of severe labour and irrepressible energy. 
Woe, we would say, to that lawi^er, who shall com- 
mence his course of reading by epitomes, and graceful 
outlines of the law! far better had he plunge at once 
into the deep legal morass of Coke upon Littleton. He 
may be suffocated in the one case; but, in the other, he 
must be enervated. 

Havine said thus much against the class of work to 
which Mr. Goldsmith's is to be referred, we may add, 
that the execution of this particular work appears to ns 
as good as the nature of it will admit. It is generally 
accurate, as far as its brevity will permit, and the state- 
ments of general principles are well and clearly put. So 
far, indeed, as the plan and limits of the worK would 
allow, the author has touched upon some of the nice- 
ties of the subject in a very happy manner. The ge- 
neral doctrine as to costs, for instance, (no unimportant 
part of equitable knowledge), and the distinction be- 
tween costs as between puty and party, and costs as 
between solicitor and client, are extremely well ex- 
plained. (See pp. 273 to 284). 

On the whole, we can safely recommend the perusal 
of Mr. Goldsmith's work to those who like epitomes 
and outlines of the law; but, we trust, that, when next 
our learned author determines on writing a book, he 
will select some kind of work in which he may find 
more field for his own evident ability, and more oppor- 
tunity of assisting the sound cultivation of legal luiow- 

Imperial ^diament. 

Monday t 3£areh 7. 

Lord Campbeii inquired, whether the Lord Chancellor had 
any Bills in preparation on the sabject of the Bankruptcy and 
Eedeaiastical Courts. 

The Lord Chancellor said, a Bill had been prepared on the 
subject of the Bankruptcy Court, which he would lay on the 
table on Monday, (the Uth). And a Bill had also been pre- 
pared on the lubject of the Ecclesiaatical Courts. 

The Lord Chancellor gave notiee of his intention to lay on 
the table, on the foUowiog day, a Bill to alter and amend the 
Law with respect to Proceedings in Lunacy. 
2\ie«2ay, March 8. 

T^e Lord Chancellor, pursuant to notice, laid on the table a 
BUI to amend the Proceedings in Cases of Lunaey. The pre- 
sent state of the law was this: there were certain standing com- 
missioners, to whom petitions in lunacy were referred. They 
were men most competent to the discharge of their duties; but 
their jurisdiction did not extend beyond twenty miles from the 
metropolis. Beyond that distance, commissions in lunacy were 
sent to persons of whom the Lord Chancellor had no know- 
ledge, and who had little or no experience in such delicate mat- 
ters; and the consequence was, sometimes, serious mistakes 
entailing heavy expense on the estates of the lunaticai. The 
mode of payment of these commissions was by fees, which were 
charged on the estates of the lunatics; and hence arose a very 
formidable pressure on those estates; so great, indeed, as to 
deter the friends of aU lunatics of small estate from applying to 
the Lord Chancellor, as they well know, that the expenses must 
so far consume the estate as to preclude an adequate allowance 
for the lunatic. The remedy which he proposed was, to ap- 
point two permanent commissioners, who would preside in lu- 
nacy cases, both in town and in the country; they would be 
men of ability and distinction at the bar, and would be paid by 
fixed salaries instead of fees. Then, as to the juries : at pre- 
sent, lunacy cases were decided by a jury of twenty-firar, as 
there must be the assent of twelve, at least, to make the inqui- 
sitions and return their verdict. The twenty-four jurors acted 
in the nature of a grand jury. They were paid one guinea a 
day each for every day of the inquiry; and this, also, he need 
not say, entailed a very heavy expense on the estates of lunatics. 
To Himin^ff i^ till* 6xpeDS6, hc propoBcd to vcst Itt tfafi Ixtfd 



CklnoeUor a diacretioiiary power to have the caea tried, in oer- 
tain casta, wkb a jury of twelTe, who need not be unanimous 
in thdr finding. He proposed further, that, instead of the 
present STstem of a reference to a Master in Chancery, after 
the return of the inquisition, for the necessary inquiries, the 
commissioners should have power to make such inquiries as to 
the estftte and effects of the lunatic, and such other matters 
as the Lord Chancellor should intrust them with; and, if diffi- 
culty should arise, then, that there should be a reference to 
the Mastery as now. He proposed to abolish the office of the 
derk of the custodies, and to transfer his duties to the secre- 
tary of lunatica, compensating the clerk of the custodies out of 
the smtocs' ftmd. Finally, he proposed, that the two oommis- 
aonen should be ex officio Tiators of lunatics. 

Lord CoUenham objsctod to compensating the derk of the 
cistodiea oift of the suitors' fund; he could not consent to ap- 
ply the funds belonging to one class of suitors for the benefit of 
another, or to a purpose for which they were never intended. 
He objected also to removing lunatics' estates from the control 
of the Masters. 

Lord Denmarit in moving the second reading of the Bill for 
improving the Law of Evidence, called the attention of the 
House to the present state of the law, and the nature of the 
diange proposed. According to the present state of the Law, 
persons in any way directly interested in the result of a cause, 
as well as persons directly parties to it, were disqualified from 
giving evideoce. He proposed to remove this disqualification 
■I every caa^, except where the witness was a aubstantiai Duty 
to the suit He proposed this, in conformity with an opinion 
whieh he believed had strongly prevailed, that the evidence of 
interested witnesses should be received) as it was of the highest 
importance that all facts known to any individual ^ould be 
laid before the jury, that they might themselves judge of the 
credit of the witness. With regard to the second portion of 
his Bill, which went to remove the objection to a witness, on the 
ground of crime, according to the law as it now stood, a person, 
eonvieted of certain crimes, had his lipa closed as a witness for 
the rest of his days. But a witness might present himself in 
the box covered with crime, admitting himsdf guilty of the 
greatest offences, and, probably, betraying those very associ- 
ates whom he might have tempted to commit the crimes with 
whidi they are chaiged. In the present state of the law, the 
lives of the accused might depend on the evidence of such a 
man as that. Look at the case of perjury, — a class of crime 
whieh appeared more than any other to di«quaHfy a witness. 
In this dassof cases, the disqualifieation depended on a variety 
«f ciroumstandea besides the fact of guilt. If the person, wish- 
ing to get rid of the evidence of a perjured witness, could not 
prove his disqualification by presenting a record of his convic- 
tion, he was not disqualified. Again, if pardoned, he might be 
heard again , notwi^tanding a conviction. The objection was, 
that the punishment did not fall oh the party guilty of peijury, 
Imt on the party wanting the benefit of his evidence. He pro- 
posed, also, to admit a certain denomination of Baptists to the 
privilege of givmg evidence on affirmation. 

After some observations by the Lord Chanctlhr, Lord 
Brougkmn, atid Lord Wyttford, it was agreed, that the Bill 
ought not to be proceeded with till after die circuit ; and it was 
■coordingiy read a second time, and ordered to be committed 
the first Thvfsday after the recess. 

Tkurgday^ March 10. 

Lord Denman laid on the table a Bill for rendering the Af- 
Armadon of that Sect of Christians, called Baptists, equivalent 
to an Oath in Courts ot Justice. 


Tuesday, March 8. 
Lord F. Egertotif in a speech of consii&rable length, moved 
for leave to introduce a Bill to amend the Statute of 1835, (5 
& 6 Will. 4, c. 5i), relating to Marriages within the prohibited 
Degrees ; his Bill was nearly identical with that brought m last 
year in the Ho^se of Lords, by a noble lord now high in the 
service of the Queen's Government. He would state at once, 
that the Bill he proposed to introduce, would enable a widower 
to marry the sister of his deceased wife. His Lordship then 

^ent on to discuss the matter, under the double sspeot of its 

-oheoloflical and its social propriety.

LONDON, MARCH 19, 1842. 

Wb hsre often had occasion to comment on the sin- 
|«kr V acB enc a s with which Bilb in Parliament are 
dnwi; Vat the Bill now before ns seems really as if it 
veniflteded to shew how entirely reckless of all ac- 
evncf, the fiamer of a Bill may be, without losing 
jitiiHQDeBtaiy caste. 

With the principle of the Bill, we hare nothing to 

do; we neither applaud nor disapprove it. For though 

we Buy haTe an opinion, wheUier it is just and ex- 

pedkn^ on piindple, to extend the term of enjoy- 

meni of a^yyright, yet we conceive it to be so very 

fvohlemalical, whether practically any substantial 

cfaai^ will be effected in the interests of authors or the 

public by the propoaed change of the law, that we hold 

ila JHftter of very slight impoitanoe whether the law 

is I hs^p (1 or not. But, as members of the community 

baud by tiia hiws, and still more as lawyers called upon 

to cxflani them, we have a wish, and we submit that it 

■ not oi mantaaonable one, to see laws passed in such a 

ihi^ that >thdr objects and effects may be at least in- 

tuffitfUtj, if they are not absolutely certain. : Let us see 

bew tetibe Bill which is now before the Legislature, for 

^kn^i^ Law of Copyright; fulfils these conditions. 

The iM material clause (sect. 3) is sufficiently plain. 

In the ei«e of any book published after the passing of 

^ Act, dnriiig the lifetime of the author, it gives the 

oopjrigfat to tlie author and his assigns, for the life of 

the anthor, and twenty-five years afterwards; and if 

the hook be published after the dei^h of the author, 

tbca to the proprietor of the manuscript for thirty 

ytars ftvm the first publication thereof. Thus much 

IS to books published after the Act. The next section 

deals with books published before the passing of the 

Act; and of that also the meaning is to be collected 

with tolflnbto-oevteaity, although it laezpressed in sin* 

Vo«-VI. J 

gularly circuitous language. As we understand it, it 
will have this effect : that, wheire an author has in him- 
self the copyright of his work at the time of the pass- 
ing of the Act, there, he will, under the Act, have nis 
term extended to the same tenn as if the Act had been 
in force when he'published his work. But if the copy- 
right was, at the passing of the Act, vested in any per- 
son as a purchaser, (the words of the clause are, *^ in all 
cases in which such copyright shall belong, in whole or in 
part, to a publisher or other person, who shall have ac- 
quired it /or other consideraHon than that ofnaHtral love 
and ejection'* )y then the copyright is to endure only so 
long as it would have endured under the old law, unless 
the author, or his personal representative, and the pro- 
prietor of the copyright, agree to accept the benefit of 
the Act, which they may do by r^^tering a minute 
of such consent under subsequent dauses of the Act. 

We now come to the 4th clause, intended it seems to 
meet the objection taken last year to Mr. Serjeant Tal- 
fourd's Bill, that, if copyright were greatiy prolonged 
after the death of an author, valuable works might be 
withdrawn from the public store of information by the 
scruples of the descendants of such autlfer. This dause 
therefore, enacts, ** that it shall be lawful for the Judi- 
cial Committee of her Majesty's Privy Council, on com- 
plaint made to them, that the proprietor of the copy- 
right in any book,, after.the death of its author, has re- 
fused to republish or to allow the republication of the 
same, and that by reason of such refusal such book may 
be withheld from the public, to grant a license to such 
compli^i^t to publish such book, in such manner and 
subje<;t to such conditions as they may think fit; and 
that it shall be lawful for such ci^mplainant to publish 
such book according to such license." 

Now, much as it has b^en the fashion of late, in law 
bills, to cut the Gordian knot in all cases of difficulty, by 
giving a sort of discretionaiy jurisdiction to the-Privy 
Coundl, we do x^t remember:aoy bill in wfaieit'ithas 




been thought expedient to vest in any tribunal so Tride psoof oi payment to the parilea employed by him, to be 

and vaguely defined an autiiority. Obaerve what the 
duty prescribed to the Judicial Committee is; it shall be 

lawful for them, ^' on ctomplaiat;" not on complaint i the right jrf publishing theiyartiolea in a separate form." 

supported by affidavits, w other proof, but simply on 
complaint ; — Am} of what kind oi wn>ng is the complaint 

to be? Not that the proprietor of the copyright has the time of the passing of this Act^ have projected, con- 

perversely, and for a lengthened period, refused to per 

mit the republieation of his woric ; not that, it beuig ^ duot^ and eanry on, any encyclopedia, veiriew, laa^

We hare passed orer the whole of the registry clauses^ 

i^ch i«^[iiiie no partieiilar eommentary of this char- 

aete; and we emne next, and lastly, to the 28th. 

Ibts has in Tiew, as it would seem, the giving and re- 

gnlatiag of powers to proceed, by way of injunction, to 

lestnin the pixacy of works. We would first obsenre, 

that then is an obTions obliTion, in the commencement 

«f the danse, (which giyes powers to the Lord Chan- 

oeDor and the Viee-Chancellor), of the fact, that, under 

and by nrtae, and in consequence of a certain act, made 

and psBvdy (ke^ in the last session of the late Parlia- 

meat, there is now no such person as the Vice-Chancel- 

lor, but that there are three Vice-chancellors. Thisis, 

hewerer, a mere trifle, and no otherwise deserving of 

Botiee^ than as part and parcel of the general inaccuracy 

nhiehperrades the bill. In substance the clause appears 

ioteaded to give to the Courts of Equity in England and 

Irelsnd^ upon application by petition in a summary way, 

sad to the Courts of Common Law in England and Ire- 

kad, and oertain other Courts, on application by motion 

in asaminaxy way, supported by affidavit, &c., to make 

soch orders for the issuing of an injunction, or for the 

cwrtiniiing and enforcing, or dissolving such injunction, 

** iB,aeeoiding to the course and practice of each of such 

Coarts xespeetively, can or may now be made in a suit 

ngidady instituted;'* and also to make such order for 

so eeoMai; as, according to the course and practice of 

flseh soeh Court can or may now be made. 

We aie of oonise bound to presume, that the framem 
ofthe Bin axe aware, that, according to the course and 
pmetifce of the Courts of Common Law, they do not act 
by wajr of injunction at all; and that, consequently, to 
cnaety that they shall make such orders for the granting, 
continiii^g, or dissolving injunctions, as by their course 
and practice they now can or may , is to enact, that they 
shall do nothing. What therefore is the intention of 
fbt refer e n ce in this clause to the Courts of Common 
lawy we are at a loss to conceive. With regard to its 
clfect on the practice of the Courts of Equity, it seems 
intended to give them power to grsnt injunctions, either 
ex parte or on notice, and the consequential account in 
natters of literary piracy, in a summaiy way, without 
the TCgnIar*institution of a suit. 

Whether this is an improvement or not we shall not 
aowaunntely inquire. We will, however, observe, that, 
as tlie ddef source of expense of obtaining an injunction 
does not depend in general on the circumstance of a suit 
beiiig instituted by bill, but on the extent and expense 
(tf evidence, and the consequential expenses of the pro- 
ceedings in Court, the total expense will probably be 
icarody diminished by proceeding on petition in a sum- 
mary way. And with regard to the necessity of summary 
protection for the owners of copyright, if the present 
mode of proceeding by ex parte injunction is not sum- 
maiy enough to satisfy the most intense craving for 
protection, we know not how the owners of copyright 
are to be aatiafied. 

OuB readers will perceive by the Parliamentary Sum- 
mary, that Lord F. E^^erton's Bill, for altering the Law 
of Marriage, is thrown out. For the present, therefore, 
Lord Lyndhurst's Act, (6 & 6 Will. 4^ c. 54), remains 
the law as regards marriages within the prohibited de- 
grees. We have not ofiered in this journal, nor do we 
mean to ofier, any opinion on the question, either ol 
the morality or expediency of the proposed change; 
but we wish to point out an error which has very much 
pervaded the whole debate, with reqiect to the effect oi 
the 5 & 6 Will. 4. It seems to have been assumed by 
many honorable, but not learned members, that the re- 
striction on marriages between persons within certun 
degrees of affinity took its rise from the date of that 
Act only; and that, moreover, that Act was specially 
directed against marriages between a widower and the 
deceased wife's sister, or a widow and the deceased hus- 
band's brother. — ^Whereas, in fiict, certain marriages, and 
among others those alluded to, were forbidden, though 
not void if contracted, by the Statute Law, (see the 25 
Hen. 8, c. 22; 28 Hen.8,c.7; and 32 Hen. 8, c. 38), as 
well as by the Canon Law. The Act of 5 & 6 Will. 4 
did not profess to prohibit anything de novo, but merely 
to settie the law, and to give force to antecedent pro* 
hibitions. It had merely in view, (we spesk of course, 
as lawyers, of the intention to be collected fiom the Act 
itself), to make valid those marriages already contract- 
ed, wbich, under the then existing state of the law, wer« 
voidable, but not void ; and to render in future, abso- 
lutely void, marriages within the degrees, which the 
law then considered as too near, in point either of con- 
sanguinity or affinity. The Act does not, in terms, re- 
fer to any specific kind of prohibited marriage, but ap- 
plies to all marriages then prohibited. 


It is a well-known rule of English law, that several 
persons may so conduct themselves with reference to a 
particular business or adventure, as to become mutually 
liable to the public for the acts of each other, as part- 
ners, althougn, as among themselves, none of the md- 
dents of a partnership may exist. Contracts of partner- 
ship may be varied in an infinite variety of ways, so 
far as the mutual rights of the partners are concerned; 
but when once the fiict of partnership as to third per- 
sons is established, the rights and liabilities of the 
parties, with respect to su^ third neisons, follow as a 
matter of course, and are governed oy uniform and in- 
variable rules. If the contract or dealiiig between the 
parties is such as to constitute a partnership between 
themselves, k fortiori it is sufficient to make them 
liable as putners to the world. Where the contract of 
partnership does not exist between the parties them- 
selves, one of them may become liable to the world as 
partner, either by holding himself forth as such, and 
thereby inducing persons to rive credit to the firm, on 
the assumption that each of its ostensible members is 
answerable; or by participating in the profits of the 
business, and thereoy enpoying the same advantaaefl 
which he would eiyoy if he were actually, and by 
agreement with the ostennble members of the firm, a 
partner. The grounds upon whidi the liability of an 
ostensible partner rests are obvious enoueh ; and thifi 
class of cases affords scarcely any matter for remark — 
the question in each case being simply, whether the 
conduct of the person sought to be cnsoged as partner 
has been such as to amount to a holdipg of himself out 



as a partner. (See Spmeer y. JBHUng^ 3 Camp. 310 ; 
JSa! parte Mathews, 3 Yes. & B. 125; Ooode t. Hhrri- 
mmy 5 B. 1^ Aid. 147; Purker y.BarkWy 3 J. B. Hoore, 
286} Fq» ^. CUfian, 4 M. Ik P. 676)* If the party 
hai sot ]Mld himself out ^eaerally as partner, yet he 
wUl ha liable to ao^ particular pexspn^npon a single 
representation to Atm, that he stands in tluit character. 
{De Bertram y. Smithy I Esp. 29). Whether a defendant 
can be chai^d as ostensible partner by a plaintiff, who 
is proved to haya been ignonnt of such apparent navi- 
nimxp^do«iiioti^>pear to be qoite settled. liOxdllamh 
fleU, m the case ol Yomg v. Axtdl^ (2 Hen. Blaok. 
242)9seemsto haye thought, that the plaintififs ignorance 
of tne defendant's ostensible character would be imma- 
terial; but as the defendant in tliat ease appeared to 
haye an actual interest as partner, the question did not 
faiii^ aiis*. As the liability of a aomiaal paitnar is 
wfaiBUy ^Mioded on the eiraumstanoe thai ozedit is given 
on atecount of Ms supposed liability, it should seem, on 
principle, that where it is shewn that the creditor could 
neyer naye relied on such liability, it would not arise. 
And this yiew of the rule is sanetioiied by what fell 
from Fotke, J., in the caseqf JO Mwmn y. Fd^, (10 
B. & Or. 146 ; 5 Man. h By. 136)» where an attempt 
w|w made to ix the dafiondant with liability ae partner 
m 9t miniiig cpmp(iny< The learned Judge said, << If it 
could liave been proyed, that the defendant had held 
himself out to be a partner, not ' to the worid,' for that 
is a loose eoipresslon, bvX to Ike pktwut^ Mmeelfy or 
vndev smii cummataoon of pnbhoity as to satMiy a 
IBty^ that tfa« phiiati4^ knew of 4n4 b&eyed him to be 
a partner, ho would be liable to the plaintiff in all 
transactiona in which he had engaged, and gave credit 
to the defendant, upon the fhith of nis being such part* 
ner — the defendant Would be bound by an inmrect 
v^rBsaBtaHon to the plaintiff aiisiRff feon hia condutt, 
as amah as if he had stated to him directly, and in ex- 
press terms, that ha was apartner, and the plaintiff had 
acted upon that statement.'' And of course, if the 
plaintiff^had notice by himself, or by his partners, be- 
fore he p^ye credit to the firm, that the defendant had 
no ra^ urtamt hi tt» that would be sufficient to nreyent 
his succeeding in an action in which the defendant 
should be joined. {Alderson y. Pope^ 1 Camp. 404). 

With regard to the second class, that of dormant 
partners, more difiicultjr exists; fer the grounds upon 
which persons who participate in the profits of a busi- 
ness, are rendered liable to the engagements in that 
business of the ostensible paitnors, are by no means 
settled in a satisfectory manner. **The principle," 
says a teamed writer^, <<npon which this liability is 
founded, is, that, by sharing the profits, he takes p^ 
of the fund to wkich the creditor has a right to resort 
for payment; in flhort, that, as ha is to enjoy the pro- 
fits of tho concern if it prmpefs, he ought to bear its 
burdens if it does not; according to the well-known 
maxim, ' ^ui sentft coramodum, sentire debet et onus." 
It is true, the creditor has not trusted the firm on his 
responsibility; but, inasmuch as the person whom ho 
has trusted, (i. e. the ostensible trader), is the less able 
to satisfy the creditor's demand on account of his con- 
nexion with the person in question, h is faiv that that 
connexion should entail on the latter the responsibility 
of partner. The consequence of a contrary doctrine 
would be, that a man might enjoy nine-tenths of the 
profits of the business for twentjr years, and, in the 
twenty-first ^ear. wlien the ostensible trader, impoye« 
rished by this exhausting^ absorption of his income, was 
no longer able to meet hisen^geroents, the secret part- 
ner would come forth fh)m his obscurity, merely to ex- 
hibit to the deluded creditors the channel through 
which the profits of the business, whose known prospe- 
rity had indnoed their confidence, had irneoyerably 
paased away." A diflferent reason waa assigned by Lord I 
* 7 barman's Convcyandng, p. 6. I 


Mansfield, in t&e case of ffoare r, DaweSf (1 Dougl. 
372) ; ^ The law,'' said that eminent^ bvt not always ao- 
eurate, judge, *^ with lespaet to dc»iiiant paatnaa^ la not 
diaputed; namely, that thay ore liablo, whan discoyei^ 
ad; because thay wouh} otherwise laoaiv^ uaurious in- 
terest without any risk." But it is eyident, that the 
rule is not necessarily connected with any statutory re- 
strictions upon the rate of interest for money, but is a 
princinlo of common hiw, which equally aaoeista now 
that taa usury laws aaa au^aiided^ so far aa they fetter 
eommercial oontiacts^ aa it did whan thay lyere in f nil 
fi)Fce« The reason first stated aboye firom Mr. Jarman, 
IB undoubtedly the true one; and has baen frequentlv 
referred to from the bench, and in test books; yet it is 
fitf firom befaifl^ satisfeatorr, or frse ft^om difteuhy in its 
ropUcation. It ia daar, mat, if a bnalnaaa vara aaq>eei- 
ed to yield 90/. per aant. of annual piQ4t on tha capital 
employadf and on that expectation a capitalist weie 
to adyanca a laxge sum to the person carrying on the 
business, with a stipulation that he should receiye 25/. 
per cent, annually upon his money, if the business 
should yield ao miieh, ^is would not owaae a partner 
ahip; BfiawoiUditnowbelmpead^laii|Nmthagreiiiid 
of usury; and yat, all thamiachiefthataoiild be appre- 
hended from a dormant partnership would be just 4s 
likely to arise in thb case as in that put by Mr. Jarman 
in the passage cited aboye. Another objection is, that 
the mte goes ftr beyond the eyil whioh it is intended to 
remedy ; Ibr if the dotmaat paatner ia to be made liaiUe 
amiply on iba ffWfBd of tha withdrawal of tha fund to 
whush future ereditora would otherwiae reaort, his lia- 
bility should not exceed the amount actually received 
b^ him, instead of being,^ as it is, unlimited. Bat the 
weakness of the doctrine is principally pcrceiyed, when It 
oomca to be applied to oontraota for the remuneration of 
olaika» agenta, frc.,by a aalary paoportlonad to the pfo- 
fita of the buainasa. Upon the efiect of aa«h contracts, 
the authorities are by no means harmonious or satisik- 
tory. Indeed, so finely haye distinctions been drawn, 
that it has been laid down by Lord Eldon, (Ex parte 
Hamper^ 17 Ves. 404), that, *<if a man alipulates, as 
the reward of hia labour, that hs ahail have, oat a 
q>ecifio interest in tha baurinass, but a given sam of 
money, ayen in ^oportian to a given quantum of 
the profits, that will not make him a partner; but, if 
he apees for part of the profits, as smchy giving Up 
a rignt to an account, though having no property in 
that Digital, he is, aa to tmrd peraoaa, a partnsz;" 
Hov can a parM>n be entitled to a aum proportioBed 
to the pnofitfL and pot have a right to an account? 
However, notmng mora sensible than this can be de- 
duced from the cases. Thus, in Dry v. BosweU, (1 
Camp. 929), the owner of a lighter having amed to 
give the penon who woiked it one half of the pmu 
eammffetor hialabonr, k waahald, that iheie wasno 
partnership bat ween the two: yet, if takinc a abaie ia 
the net profits is an iniury to prospective cremtors, sure- 
ly takinf a share in the gross receipts is more so. So, 
tne usual mode of paving seamen in the whale fisheries 
by a share in the produce, does not make them partntfB*

LONDON, MARCH 26, 1842. 

iTbasoeeiirred to us, that we should render an ac- 
«jtebk Boriee to many of our readers, particularly 
to iboft vho have not yet had mucli opportunity of 
''stdangtlie proceedings of Parliament, if we were to 
pofflt oat, as briefly as possible, some of the more pro- 
Boaest points In the practice of the House of Commons 
io ngiri to pnhKc Bills; for, we believe, that many, 
«TED among lawyers, find themselves frequently at a 
Iqb csrrectly to estimate the state of proceedings in 
I^IiamcDt, in regard to those measures in which they 
take interest, owing to their attention not having been 
^ted to any safe sources of information explaining 
^ eoone of Parliamentaiy proceedings. . In drawing 
lip tile folbwing very brief heads, we have consulted 
c^idly Mr. TlatlalVs elaborate woric, on Parliamentary 
I^KKMduigi^ and a concise Epitome, on the same sub- 
i^ ^ Mr. Hammond, published in 1825, to which 
^ Rfe those of our readers who wUh more ample in- 

'^ibH step to a public Bill, unless it be a Bill of 
^^IfOf of Charge upon the subject, is a motion for 
J^i^ taking it in ; this may be made by any Member 
*lio thiab fi^ The introduction of the Bill may be, 
^|ii it is no^ usually, opposed on the motion for leave 
^ bnng it in (as was the case on the very recent mo- 
^for lesTe to bring in a Bill for altering «the Law 
«f Marrisge). If the House reject the motion, the Bill 
»wt then be dropped for that Session. If the House 
■■w^ it is orderea to be prepared and brought in. 
viTj* P'^P^wd by being drawn out on paper with 
"^"w^ fcr such matters as must be inserted by Parlia- 
"^.«di as dates, penalties, and the like. 
♦V " *^ PW«CJite^,to the House, and must pass 
"i«W»ft?»&tiDct st^es, viz. first, the first reading; 
^mjr, 4(^Aeoond r^ing; Uiirdly, commitment; 
fowtWy, ifiwr :j,5adii^; ^^^ fifthly, moUon, that it do 

The Bill may be, and usually is, read the first time 
on its being presented ; but it may be ordered to be read 
for the first time on. a subsequent day. The second 
reading is usually appointed for a subsequent day, but 
it may immediately follow the first. 

After the second reading, the Bill is committed, viz. 
referred to a committee ; which may consist of a cer- 
tidn number of members selected by the House; or of 
all the members; and it is then called a committee of 
the whole House : and this is done by the Speaker, in 
consequence of a motion to that eilect, leaving the 
chair; whereupon, another member being appointed 
chairman, the House then sits and debates as a com- 
mittee. The Speaker may sit and debate in such com- 
mittee as a private Member. 

In committee, the Bill is debated clause by clause ; 
amendments are made ; blanks filled up ; and though it 
is generally understood, that the proper function of a 
committee is to discuss and settle the detuls of a Bill 
whose principle has been adopted by the House, yet, in 
fact, the Bill may obviously, and sometimes is, wholly 
changed in committee by a succesmon of alterations 
affecting all the material clauses. 

After the Bill has gone through the committee, the 
chairman reports it, as altered therein, to the House ; 
and the House then reconsiders the whole Bill. The 
question is put on every clause and amendment; and 
it is open to members, at this stage, again to debate, 
clause by clause, the whole of the Bill. 

When the House has agreed, finally, to the Bill, as 
amended by the committee, or as altered by amend- 
ments of its own, it is ordered to be ingrossed^^which Is 
done by writing it, in an ingrossing hand, «l|jdipB or 



rolls of parchment. It is then to be read a tj^ijStime; 
and, on the motion for this reading, it may ag^hii^ ^ 
posed, in whole or in part. If the Bill be etaclik thitd 
time, the Speaker finally puts the que8tionj^H0tlyey it 
shall pass; and if that quesUon be detem^oed in 



affirmatiye, th» title of the Bill in oettied, and it U th^ 
carried np to the House of Lovds^ where it passes thfough 
the same, or neajrly the same, forms» aa in the Bouie of 

When the House maizes an amendment after the BiU 
is ingrossedy the additional matter is, in bills not of 
sappljr or chaige, made by adding a rider, or additional 
# piece of parchment to the roll, on which the additional 
iMtter 1b ingfossed. But, on bills of supply, of ebaige 
OH U^e Rbjecti Uie proposltiou for the charj;e must be 
lefemd to a committee of the whole House, a^d re- 
ported pn by such committee; in other words, no reso- 
lution or vote can pess Ihr imposing a charge on the 
wUfA whM^ ie not fi(»uiided oa the nport of a com* 
mittea of the whob Hovse; and that, whether to charge 
i]ie fiilQeet ie the sole object of the Bill, or that of a par« 
ticular.elaVM eoty; and whether the charge is by way 
f^l^3(, qf of pepelty fer an offence; and whether such 
impdellieii]«4ii>e0l(»ri9diiect, Henee, if any additional 
(^hmge ^ pippoped after the leport on a Bill, such charge 
cannot be imposed by e nder; but the Bill must be

Wiih regard io^e Mode t^etmdwimg the Proeeeditt^, 
It is a nUe^ tl^t po giember should speak twipe to 
the s^me question; this rule is, however, constantly 
evaded, if not broken, by the pmctice of informing the 
gouae of a ftct, or explaining; under cover of which 
modes of proceeding, few who pay attention to the pro- 
$eedin^ in Parliameut are unaware, that, practically, 
piembers ppeak much i^or^ than once to the sapie ques- 
tion. According to the strict rules of the Hpuse, every 
member is entitled to be beard without interruption; 
fai4 it is the duty of the Speaker to endeavour, by 
the exercise of bis interposition, to procure for him an 
flttentive hearipg. This rule, is also practically ne- 

{;leQted ; and has been, in fact, obsolete for more than 
wo ^ei^turies, as appears from the following story, re- 
lated in Mr. HatselTs Precedent^ vol. 2, 107:— '^Ser- 
jeant Heele speaking, said, * the Q,ueen hath as n^uch 
right to fpl our lands and goods as to the revenue of 
hei crown;' at which all the House hemmed and 
lavgM a^d talked. ' Well,' quothed Serjt. Heale, * all 
your hemming shall not put me out of countenance.' 
%i Mr. Speaker stood up and said, ' It is a great dis- 
Qxder th4t this should be used, for it is the ancient use 
of every man to be silent when any one speaketbs and 
he that ie speaking should be suffered to deliver hia 
]nin4 without interruption;' so the Serjeant proceeded, 
imd whan he had (tpoken a little while, the House 
hemiped again, and so he sat down." (a. d. 1601). 

The modem practice of the House appears to be in 
accordance with this precedent; that is, every member 
|s entitled to a patient hearing when he cap obtain it, 
I4id po lopger. 

To obtain the sense of the House on any question, the 
pnictice is, that the member who desires it, frames his 
^ueetion ii) w^ting, and delivers it tP the Speaker, 
whc^ when the member has moved it, and it has been 
^eopded, proposes it to the Houae, and the House is 
then nuid to be in poipeiaioA of the queetion; and 
4hal quertian eaimat aftarwiirds be withdri^wB^ but by 

leave of the House* When the House wishes, how- 
ever, to get rid of a question without giving any opin- 
ion upon it, it eannot be done by moving any other 
question; because, regularly, that question which is 
first moved and seconded is to be ^rst put; and, there- 
fore, the question which it is sought to get rid of has 
precedence over eveiy other. But there are three wniya 
of obtaining the object of dismisdng the question l>e- 
fore the House, ftr that day at least. The first v hy 
some member n^oving ai) adjournment; the aecond^ by 
hia moving that the orders of the day be read ; and the 
third, by moving the previous question. 

The motion to edjoum has this effect, because it tekaa 
preoedeace of any motion or question before nuide or 
pioposed* But it must be simply to ^adjourn,** and 
not to adjourn to any pavtioular day. The nest mode, 
by moving the orders of the day, is for the orieta gene- 
rally, and not for any particular order; and, if carried, 
the orders of the day are to be read, and proceeded on 
in the order in which they atand. The prindpla on 
which the motion for the orders of the day puta an end, 
if ottried, to any question before the Houaa^seema^ that 
prhnA fittie, the orders or regular business of tli» day 
take precedence of all other proceedings; for, if the 
House is proceeding, not on a special question, but on 
one of the orders of the de^t then ihat proceeding ou»- 
not be intezTupted by a motion for the orders of the day. 
The third mode, though somewhat mystic and aninteUi> 
gibleatfirst sight, is, in reality, very simple. ^'Theefiect 
of it» sf^s tU. Hatsell, (Vol. 2, p. 11^), is only to put 
off the coming to that question at that time, and la in 
these words: ^that this question be now put.' If the 
previous question is negatived, so as to put off tbo niAin 
question to another day, the same question, thongh al- 
tered in words, if not essentially and substantially al- 
tered in matter, ought not to be put again that day." 
Moving the previous question is, therefore, in efiFeot, 
putting to ^he House as a preliminary queation| ^vhe- 
ther the question, then in course of debate, shall be put 
at all; and, of course, if the preliminaiv inquiry be 
answered in the negative^ the subsequent one MJs to 
the ground.

LONDON, APRIL 2, 1842. 

AKCMDmendation is made in the conclndlng passage 
of&IH^Uet, noticed in another part of this jonmal, 
v^ teres, in the present juncture of public afFaiis, 
the mm attention of a personage bearing a judicial 
^ Iboogh denuded, except as a fiction of the law, of 
jnfioal functions; we mean the Chancellor of the £x- 
cli«qiier. Mr. Miller proposes, that the Legislature should 
proride fat the complete dficacj of equitable mort- 
P^ by deposit of title deeds; but he proposes at the 
sane time, that they should be deprived of that which 
vebeliere constitutes their principal charm, the firee- 
dom from stamp duty. That this proposition might be 
^ttble in the eye of the functionary to whom we 
We aUuded, is highly probable ; but, whether it would 
^ &Tor whh the bankers and merchants and traders, 
vbomost deal with equitable mortgages, is quite an- 
other pestion ; and whether, in the result such a mea- 
RR would be the cradle of a growing revenue, or the 
gnre of equitable mortgages, is, also, a fitting question 
for caxioiu speculation. That money to an enormous 
«3eM u oonstantly outstanding on the security of a 
mere deposit of deeds, is, we believe, not to be contested. 
And th^ in the state in which the law was supposed 
to be before the dictum in Whitwofih v. Oiwgaik^ it 
ns aa extmnely oouTenient and popular mode of giv- 
ing iDd taking security, is not less incontestable ; that 
\ while it was supposed that a deposit of deeds was a 
tM ncurity ; and whUe it required neither the trouble 
rfinnstigating a title, nor the expense of any kind of 
stamped instrument, it was thought much of by the 
'ra^ community. 

^ Ateietedly, however, we do not see what b the 
pwticalar advantage of that mode of security. If the 
^^ of tbose whose commercial dealings lead them to 
■Jncttbeuse of equitable mortgages, had been merely 
wMpidity with which they can be given for the pur- 

pose of raising and securing money, it is quite plain, 
that it would have been always needless for a lender to 
remun exposed to the legal inconveniences attaching on 
a mere equitable mortgage. Nothing could have been 
easier and simpler than for the borrower to execute a 
short legal conveyance, which, though inferior, in re- 
gard to its want of formality, to a properly drawn con- 
veyance, would have been, at least, as good as a deposit 
for all the purposes for which a deposit was good ; and 
would have been better, in so for as it was a legal 

Blank forms for such short deeds^ contuning merely 
words of conveyance and a covenant for tiUe, might 
have been prepared under advice, and kept by bankers 
and other traders in the habit of requiring suddenly 
to raise money; and, so far as mere rapidity is con- 
cerned, a legal mortgage might have been created with 
as much rapidity as an equitable one. The observa- 
tion of a learned and eminent Judge, ** that it may 
frequentiy be necessary to raise money on a sudden be- 
fore an opportunity can be afforded of investigating 
the titie-deeds and preparing the mortgage,*' {Kt^fs v. 
WUUamty 3 You. & C. ^\ has, we submit no special 
applicability to mortgages by deposit, and would be 
met as well by a short legal conveyance, such as we 
have alluded to, as by an equitable deposit ; for it is not 
the form of the conveyance or transfer of the interest in 
the estate, that renders the investigation of titie requi- 
site ; that investigation has, in general, nothing to do 
with the question how the estate is to be transferred, 
but only vdth the question what is the estate, or whe- 
ther there is any estate that can be transfnred*.! Sud- 
den advances on deposits of deeds can obviously^ only 
obtained where the lender trusts the borrower, jind has 
some knowledge of the fiict, that he has an estate such 
as is purported to be represented by the deed^brm^t 
to him. Why, then, should his confidence l|9 dhmti- 
iihed because the boxxower, instead of merelyJui^^gbig 



the deeds and sajiBg, ^Iheie )u« the lilie-deedi of my 
estate at A./' 1>ring8 ftlso a shOii oonyeyaxite ready 
drawn or printed, and executes it ! The title wo«ld not, 
in either case, beexammed; and every ground of Direc- 
tion on that 8cot% is as applicable to the one case as to the 
other. There h somethings it b trae^ in the secrecy of 
equitable mortgages t^hich has a Teal or supposed ad- 
vantage to tnders; but ^^taoy it Is t)byiousy cannot t;o- 
etttst wtth B^ efficient provision ton makilig d^poiitd 
a quatill legal Becuiityy masmuch as socii provisions vait^ 
not be effected >nri&otit some mode ox {^t^serv^g a 
record of the mortgage transaction. 

We are fotted ^QmH Io cMoe back to the condnsion, 
.thai the pnly substtotial grouM «b whM fei pfeitntiee 
for aqniiaVk Mortgages «at& b^ sustained, is the absence 
of stamp du<^ ; and^ if wo reoollecty that, for sums from 
50L to fiOOl.9 the avenge «tam)> dttty Is 17. ^. percent; 
and thati for sums from 500/. to 20,000/,, the average 
8taBi|> dii^ is IQi, pcfT oenti^ t( ^nSl Mt ^seetn woti'> 
derfal that there should be a preference for a mode of 
security of such superior economy^ 

The question, however, as to rendering equitable 
mortgages efficient by legifdative enactmenti as against 
all subsequent incumbrance^ legal or otherwise, appears 
to us, not flo much whether equitable miiitgages shsUi 
l^y beiag soprotectedt continue |o be resorted to as they 
now are: but which of the two modes of security, equi- 
table or legal incwtihraaces^ shall li^e forced out of gene- 
ral use. For if equitable mortgages are endowed with 
aU the seeurity of Hgal mortgages» and continue un- 
chargeable wil^ stamp duty, it is plain that they will, 
to a very .great -extent, if not wholly, supersede legal 
mortgages and other legal incumbrances. If, on the 
other hand, they are endowed with such security, and 
made liable to the ad valorem duty, then, we appre- 
hend, that the principal ^[rounds of their popularity, 
viz. &eir secrecy and economy, being withdrawB| th^ 
will not be much resorted to. 

That it is desir&1i)le, however, that something should 
be done, in the way of settling the Law on this sulgect, 
cannot be doubted ; fox, «t present^ it seems conceded, 
first, thai an equitable mortgage hy deposit is clearly 
not good against a subsequent conveyance of the legal 
estate; and^ secondly, that it is doubtfol whether it is 
good against a subsequent jiidgment creditor proceeding 
under his judgment. The result i^ that it is difficult 
to say when im equitable mortgage is worth anything 
at aA as « security, except in the single excepted case 
of there being no subsequent deating at all with the 
mortgaged property. This is clearly a state of the 
Law which must» if preserved, altogether drive equi- 
table mortg^es out of use. 

Ws have received-several communications on the sub- 
ject of the annual duty paid by solicitors for the certi- 
ficate necessary to authorize tiiem to practise. The im- 
position of this duty has always been felt by the profes- 
sion as a grievance. To those who are at the head of 
their profession, it must be admitted, the grievance is 
merely imaginary; but the number of these is veiy 
small ; and not only to the young practitioner, but to 
the great body of practitioners, whether youj^ or old, 
it has been and is a praeticfliUy and heavilvTelt tax. 
We know that the lait^liave extr^c^dinapjy cxq^* 

rated notiona of the gains of lawyers. To them a law- 
yer is DOW what a nabob was a century ago ; they think 
him a being who finds gold grow under his feet; and 
they make their sons lawyers with an idea, that, being 
lawyer^ tliey must become rich men. Of the &lkcy 
of these lay dreams, the profession are but too weU 
aware. It has been asserted, and we believe the asser- 
Hob 16 be V«ry near the truth, that the average gains of 
Muntl^ loUcltofs do not exceed 200^. a jem; snd those 
of London pnctittoners axe not much h^^her. It U wdl 
known, indeed, that now, few young men commeacing 
practice, can hope to exist for the first four or hve yean 
of their oareer, by their professional labom. If thtf 
have not independent toeans of support, they are aoon 
sqoea^ out of the ovvrd; and the number of attQ^

atacNQ, hut continue^ at the same time^ to be subjected to 
a special impost, amounting of itself, as regards by hr 
the greater number of practising soliciton^ to a direct 
income tax, ranging between 31, and 4/. per cent. We 
are informed, that steps are being taken to bring this 
question before the legislature. We trust that such is 
the feet ; and that the men in great husinesa^ these who, 
net pmctioally feeling the certificate tax, cannot have 
their motives misconstrued, will take the lead in en- 
dcavotirhig to obtain for their less fortunate brethren,

of this kind has any thii^ to do with the xe9pectabili|)'

pends on 'hit other eonstdenil^oiis than the payment of

Before the stat. 33 Geo. 3, c. 13, an act of parliament 
(in tlie iJisence of any special direction to the contrary) 
was consideied to have passed, and its operation to have 
oommenoed, on the first day of the session. Since that 
statnte, the commencement of the act (except where 
ancther period of commencement is therein provided) 
dates &om the day on which it received the royal as- 
sent; and that day is directed to he indorsed on every 
act immediately auer the title, and to he considered as 
part of the act. 

This alteration in the law occasioned a corresponding 
change in the correct mode of describing or reciting a 
statute. A statute, passed previously to the act of Geo. 3, 
may he correctlY described as of the year in which the 
6e«0Q Vgan, tnongh the session extended into another 
year of me reign, and the statute was, in fact, passed 
in this sabaequent ^ear ; and it is, in the latter case, in- 
caned to deacribe it as of the year in which it actually 
passed. For instance, the statutes passed in the first ses- 
son of pariiament in the reign of James 1, are written in 
the statate book under the year secundo (vulgo primo). 
It appears that the parliament was begun and holden on 
the idth March, in the first year of uie King's reign; 
that was, within a few days of the end of the first year, 
Qneen EHizabeth having died on the 24th March pre- 
ceding ; and it also appears, that it was continued un- 
til the 7th July, 1604, and then prorogued until the 
7th February following; both which latter dates were 
dearly in the second year; and it was, therefore, ob- 
jecteo, that the statute ou^ht to have been described as 
of the second year. But it was contended, at the bar, 
Vy Mr. Abbott, and the court adopted his aigument in 
ttim judgment, that, as it appearea that the parliament 
wi»lwgfm in the first year of the King, and as there 
was n^hing to denote the precise day on which the 
statote passed, whether before or after the adjournment 
or prorogation, the rule of law must apply, that aU 
enactments relate to the first day of holding the par- 
liament; and, therefore, the statute was properly de- 
scribed as of the first year. {Bryant v. JritherSy 2 M. 
& S. 123). , 

In the same way, it has been held, {Rumsey v. Tuff- 
ndl^ 9 Moo. 425 ; 2 Bing. 255), that the statutes printed 
in the statute book as of the 29 Eliz., ought to be 
pleaded as of the 28th year of her reign; for there 
was no parliament roll for the former year ; and although 
the paniaraent was adjourned, still it had relation back 
to the first day of the session, which, in this instance, 
commenced on the 29th October, in the 28 Eliz. 

On the other hand, statutes passed since the act of 
Geo. 3, being referred to the date of the royal assent as 
the period of their commencement, may be correctly 
described as of the year when they received the royal 
assent, though the session in which they passed extend- 
ed from that year into another; and if the royal assent 
was g^ven in the latter of the two years, it would be in- 
accurate to describe them as of the former year alone. 
Thos, the Copyhold Commutation Act, 4 & 5 Vict. c. 35, 
appeals to he improperly described in some of the forms 
toat it provides, as an act passed in the fourth year of 
the reign ; the royal assent having been given to it on 
the 21st January, 1841, the second •day of the fifth year. 
On the other hand, the act relating to the qualification 
of members of parliament (1 & 2 Vict, c.48; royal as- 
sent July 27, 1838) is correctly mentioned, in the form 
of declaration therein prescribed, as an act passed in the 
Bccond year of the reign. 

And in either case, whether the statute was passed 
before or since the act of Geo. 3, it is, in pleading, fatal, 
and in any kind of document inaccurate, to describe a 
statute as passed in two years of a reign, though the 
Eessbn of parliament in which it was passed extended 
from the one year into the other. 

Tims, "it hath been adjudged," says Hawkins, 
** that, in an indictment, a repugnancy in setting forth 
the time when a parliament was holden, is &tal ; as, if 
a statute be recited as made on such a day in the firat 
and second years of such a king, for, it is impossible, 
that one and the same day ^ould be in two years. 
{Langl^ v. Haynes^ Moore, 302; Hawk. P. C, h. 2, 
c. 25, s. 104). Again, in NuU v. Stedman^ (Fort 372), 
it was held, that a statute ought not to be pleaded as 
made in the 8th and 9th years of the reign of WOl. 3, 
but that it ought to be pleaded of the 8Ui year, when 
the session began ; for, in law, an act cannot he made in 
two years, and though so mentioned in the statute book, 
it cannot be good. So, likewise, in a case since the act 
of Geo. 3, (jS. v. Biers, 1 Adol. & Ell. 377; 3 Nev, & 
M. 475), it was objected, that the indictment was bad, 
inasmuch as it alleged, that the defendants, well know* 
ing that the prosecutors were liable to such penalties as 
should be incuired by the driver of their carriage, un- 
der an act passed " in the second and third years of the 
reign of his present Majesty," conspired, &c. The foiii 
of conviction, given in a scnedule to the act in question, 
(printed as 2 & 3 Will. 4, c. 120), speaks of it as an act 
" passed in the third year," &c. But an act of the 3 & 4 
Will. 4, c. 48, for amending the act in question, recites 
it, in the preamble, as an act, ** passed in the second and 
third years of the reign of his present Majesty;" and 
that, it was contended, was a sufficient warrant for the 
mode of description used in the indictment. The court, 
however, held, that the objection to the indictment was 
good, on the authority of Langl^ v. Haynes, followed 
up by the decision in Nutt v. Stedman, And in a veiy 
recent case, where the declaration described the act for 
abolishing arrest on mesne process in civil actions, as 
'* an act made and passed in the first and second years 
of the reign of her Majesty Queen Victoria, intituled, 
&c.," it was held, that this description of the statute 
was incorrect, and constituted a vanance that was fatal, 
{Gihl^ V. Pikey 8 Mee. & W. 223), « it being clearly in- 
accurate," said Mr. Baron Parke, ^' to state the statute 
to have passed in two years, because all acts take effect 
from the time of receiving the royal assent^ unless other- 
wise provided for." 

But, in all cases where the session extended from one 
year into another, whether the statute was passed before 
or after the act of Geo. 3, and whether it was passed in 
the first or the second of the two years, the most safe 
and accurate method, and that prescribed by the court 
in the cases both of B. v. Biers and OMs v. Pike, is, to 
describe it as '* passed in the session of parliament held" 
in those years; for this, it is evident, will prevent the 
possibility of any exception being taken to the corrects 
ness of the statement, or of any confusion with the acts 
of another session. Thb mode of statement is followed 
in the act for the further amendment of the law, 3 & 4 
Will. 4, c. 42, (an act, whose authorship is attributed to 
one of the most distinguished ornaments of the bench), 
which, in s. 16, refers to '^ the statute passed in the ses- 
sion of parliament held in the eighth and ninth years of 
the reign of King William the Third, intituled, &c." 

There is, however, a peculiar exception to these rules, 
deserving of notice, tbiat came under consideration in 
the case of Rann v. Green, (Cowp. 474). The declara- 
tion described a statute on which the action was brought 
to be a statute of the 4th of Philip & Mary, whereas, 
the record, when produced in evidence, appeared to be 
of the 4th & 5th of Philip & Mary. It was contended, 
that the former was the true description of the statute; 
it being made in the fourth year of their j<nnt reign. 
Lord Mansfield said : '* It is impossible to get over this 
objection. The only question is, whether this is a va- 
riance in the description of the material ground of 
action ? In some reigns, as in Car. 2 and Geo. 2, it 
happens, that the parliament meets in one year of the 
reign, and continues during part of the next year. In 



that case, the method is to intitle the acts passed of 
hoih years. Bat, in point of law, acts of parliament, 
lehicn do not, in words, confine the commencement to a 
particular day, or where the commencement does not 
appear from the subject-matter, refer to the first day of 
the session: and, therefore, supposing tliis to be an act 
(yf the 4th 8c 5th of Philip & Maiy, according to such 
jaethodj it would, in trutn, be a statute of the 4th, and 
ought tp be so set fi)rth. But, in this case, it is difi^er- 
en£ F^^7> ^7 ^^^ of parliament, has tb^ stile of King. 
But his bemg so intitled does not annihilate the first 
year of the reign of Queen Ma^. Therefore, from that 
time, the statutes are intitled the Ist & 2nd, the 2nd & 
drd of Philip & Maiy, and so on ; that is, the Ist of 
I'hilip Q^d 2nd of Mary, &:c. Here the declaration de- 
pcribes the statute to be of the fourth of Philip & Mary. 
Upon the parliament roll bein^ produced* it appears to 
l>e aa act passed in the 4th & 6th of Pnilip (k Mary. 
7he statute, therefore, described in the declaration, is 
different from the statute produced ; and, in fiu^t, there 
is xio act in the statute book of the 4m of Philip & 

lie decisions we have been considering have all 
takou place on matters of pleading; and though there 
may not be the same motives for exacting the observ- 
ance of this scrupulous correctness in other documents, 
ibr example, in those that occupy the attention of 
the conveyancing draftsman^ as the same fatal conse- 
quences are not nsked; yet, even there, the nicest ac- 
curacy and propriety of yerbal details mkht be advan- 
tageously studied, by fbllowing the method of describing 
a statute recommended in R, v. Biers, wherever it may 
be consistent with the desirable perspicuity and terse- 
ness of expression. In the conveyance by release^ in- 
deed, the inconvenience of lengthening the parenthetical 
mention of the statute 4 & 5 vict. c. 21, interposed be- 
tween the nominative and the verb in the operative part 
of the deed, would seem to present a sufficient reason 
for adhering to the usual form of referring to it as " An 
Act passed m the fourth year of the reign of her present 
Majesty. &c. :'* since, as we have seen, that mode of 
staung it, (the act having received the royid assent on 
the 18xh May, 1841), seems to be fully warranted, even 
on the strict nrinciples of pleading, by the authorities 
to which we nave called our readers' attention. 

In the case, however, of statutes which received the 
Toyal assent in the latter of two years in which the 
{session was holden, convenience requires that they should 
be described as of both years, in order to distinguish them 
from statutes in a subsequent session commencing or 
held in the same year ; and, consequently, that the me^ 
thod should be adopted of stating them as statutes 
^ passed in the session of pariiament, held in the th 
and tb years of the reign, &o." 

The plan of describing the statutes passed in the first 
of the two years in which the session was held, as sta- 
tutes of that first year done, and those passed in the se- 
cond year, as statutes of both years, has also this ad- 
vantage — that it agrees with the mode adopted by the 
Queen's printer in the copies printed by him. And this 
authority has been referred to, as at least presumptive 
evidence of the authentic text of the title of a modem 
statute in the case of Re^ v. Bameti, (3 Camp. 345), 
where the title of a statute, (one in the 6th year of 
Elizabeth), in tlie copy of the act lately printea by the 
Kin^s printer, being different to that in Ruffhead's 
edition of the statutes. Lord Ellenborough said, that, in 
the case of a recent statute, he should have acted upon 
the copy printed by the King's printer; but, with re- 
l^u;^ to a statute of Queen Elizabeth, he should con- 
»der Ruffhead to be correct, till the contrary was prov- 
ed by an examination of the parliament roll. 

In concluding these remarks upon the mode of de- 
scribing statutes in le^al documents, we may notice two 
practices that prevail m the maooer of siting statutes; 

matters, indeed, of minor importance^ but not wholly 
unconnected with our subject. When a session of par- 
liament has extended from one reign into another, it is 
very common to cite a statute of frequent reference, aa 
a statute of the first year of the new reign only. Thus 
it is, we believe, an almost universal practice to cite the 
new Will Act as the 1 Vict. c. 26. And this is the 
mode adopted hj the Queen's printer in the heading to 
his copies. On tne other hand, statutes passed in the fiist 
of two years in which the session was held are fre- 
quently cited as statutes of both years; this bemg the 
general description prefixed to the collective edition of 
the statutes of the whole session. But these modes of 
citation are by no means uniformly obseired, even in 
the pages of the same legal author. $.

We had anticipated, on openhig this pamphlet, that 
we should find a minute inquiry mto ^e doctrine sup- 
posed to flow from the dictum of Lord Cottenhsm, in 
Whitworth V. Gaugain, (see ante, vol. 6, p. 523, and p. 
809), a doctrine obviously of the highest importance; 
since, if the rule be according to the dictum in that 
case* that a subsequent judgment creditor, without no- 
tice, having sued out an elegit, will not be restrained by 
injunction from proceeding under such eledt at the suit 
of a prior mortgagee by depoMt, it is plain, that an 
ej^uitable mortgage by deposit is, taking Into considera- 
tion its other disadvantages, a nearly worthless se- 
curity. Mr. Miller has not, however, treated this ques- 
tion at any length ; his object appears to have been ra- 
ther to set forth a concise expose of the law on equitable 
mortgages by deposit, as it stood before Whitwarih t. 
Qaugain; and then, stating the case of Whihimrth r. 
Gktugnin; the doubt created by it; and the importance 
in regard to commerce of the practice of mortgaging by 
deposit of deeds, — to point out, that tiielaw is in such a 
state as to render the mterposition of t<he Legislature re- 
quisite for thepurpose of makine that practice saffe and 
convenient. The learned authors statement of the law 
of mortgages by deposit contains nothing of novelty; 
indeed, such an essay could scarcely at the present 
day, be original, without becoming incorrect. It is, 
however, clear and concise, and may be read with ad- 
vantage, as a neat resume of the cases. With the 
meagreness of the portion devoted to the examination 
of Whttworih V. Gaugainy we confess ourselves disap- 
pointed; the dictum of Lord Chancellor Cottenham, 
beine merely such, is clearly open to discussion ; and we 
think the author would have deserved better of the 
profession if he had learnedly and laboriously opened 
the law on thb doubt^ instead of leaving it, as ne found 
it, a m^r^ doubt. 

We conclude with quoting his propositions for 1^»" 
lative interference, which seem oeserving of conaiac^ 
ation :•— 

** The enactments (says Mr. Miller, p. 84) necessary

* should be deemed valid, unless a memorandum in

* puroose for which the deposit is made, and the extent 

* of tne security ; but, that everj equitable mortgage. 
' with such a memorundum, should be good againit all 

* subsequent incumbrances, whether legal or othenvise.

LONDON, APRIL 9, 1842. 

li Joes not often fall within the province of the prac- 
tUtog Ikwjet to hare any concern with the proceedings 
W Conis MtHy^l^ or to conduct matters depending on 
tm miwCi lift inn of the Mntin/ Act, and the Articles of 
War. AeeordiBgly, we heliere, that there is no act to 
he found in the statute hook which is so inrariahly 
pissed OTer unnoticed as the Mutiny Act; and no 
Conrtsi, whose constitution, powers, and proceedings, 
tre BO little known to the profession as those of Courts 
MartiaL We rememher a striking instance of this 
while Lord Brongfaani prended in the Court of Chan- 
esry. An implication was made to his Lordship, on 
Am put of a person who had heen tried and sentenced 
to a eertain punishment hy a Court Martial, to alter 
the aanlenoe of the Court Martial, and to restrain the 
•ontinuanoe of the punishment awarded. But the Lord 
ChanceUor answered, that the Court Martial, haying 
adjudicated, was at an end ; irrerocahly defunct, and 
gone; and asked, whether he had jurisdiction to or- 
der the Crown to constitute a fresh Court Martial to 
recQiMider the sentence of the former one, ohsenring 
that, if, as he eonoeired, he had not, there was no per- 
mi in exkleace to whom he could address his order. 
Vol. in. M 

Now, hut for the great inattention with which the 
Mutiny Act, and the Articles of War, are hahitually 
treated hy lawyers, such an application could never 
hare heen thought of. The Mutiny Act gives power 
to the Crown to call Courts Martial into existence, and 
limits the powers with which such Courts may he in- 
Tested; hut does not, of itself, create any such Courts. 
A Court Martial is a Court created pro hAc vice, by vir- 
tue of the authority of the Crown, in pursuance of the 
powers given to it hy the Mutiny Act. It is called 
into existence for the trial of some particular case ; and 
having tried and adjudicated on the matter brought be- 
fore it, its existence terminates of itself, and it has no 
continuance, either of authority or of liability*. The 
sentence of the Court is, in effect, the sentence of the 
Crown, because, hy the Articles of War creating the 
Court, its sentence cannot be carried into efiect until it 
has been confirmed by the Crown, or hy the officer to 
whom the Crown has delegated its power of confirming 
or annulling it. It is clear, therefore, that the Chan- 
cellor can have no authority or power to interfere, after 
sentence, against the decisi<m of a Court Martial. Upon 
the Court itself he cannot act, because it has wholly 
ceased to exist. And, as regards the sentence, whether 
it be just or unjust, it is ^e sentence of the Crown^ 
passed in conformity with powers vested in it by the 
Legislature, and cannot be reconsidered, except by the 
Crown, or some body to whom it shall del^;ate its au- 

* This iB strikingly exemplified by the esse of Lieut. Fry. (See 
F^mer's Pract. of the Priry CoancU, 1831 , p. 3, and 1834 ,p. 39). 
In that case, Lieut. Fry, hating been tried by a Conrt Martial^ 
and having had sentence passed upon him, used, alter the sen- 
tence proDoonoed, language grossly insulting to the members of 
the Omrt, who diereapon condemned, or assumed to condemn 
him, in punishment m his further offnoe, to serere imprison^ 
ment. But, on an action brought by Lieat. Fry . jo^ist the 
President of the Conrt Martial, he recofered a vmSct«nr heavy 
damages, the fiirther sentence of the Gdlst IIsrtiBl» after |t 
had pranouBoed its origiBal sentence oathkxshJttm^ before lt» 
being held illo|etheri^oiitsirthori ^4 i yffl»t

The Regimental Court Martial is to be constitiited. in

Wifh respect ta the fbrmation of General Courts 
Martia!, emd District or' Giu'rison Courts Martial, the 
Articles o£ Waar keep strictly within the Uniiis pi»> 
scribed by tka Matiny Aet But, as regards the powers 
af Regfaaaniat Coaarta Martial; there is a discrepancy 
betwCOBf ^e teftta e( tke Act and of the Articles of 
Wasp, #kicft purport to be founded upcto it. The IM 
clause of the Mutiny Act specificany points out the 
powers of a Bi^mental Couft Martial. It may sin- 
taoca a soldier to imprieonment, witk or wkhout bai^ 
labour, ftv a periad aot eeoceeding forty days} of wbich 
a purtlun may be directed to^ he sitfltttty eonfin«fi«ir, 
and, for partieidkr otf^neee, h may deprive a soldier of 
apeaay a day, fera period not exoeedlng thirty dn^s; 
and taaf dlsprive him of certain aflowances. Bat it 
makes no mention whatever of corpoxal punishmiait, 
ov oiF atoppagea of payv other thaa thepentay a dayntii- 
dotted. By the Articles of War, however, it is ordered 
that a Regimental Court Martial may award iinprison- 
rnent^ following tka tejna of tha Mutiny Act, aad cor- 
poral punishment not exceeding 100 kuite^ or other 
paoiakBenla aceeirdfng to the aaag« of tke Betfhe; niA 
fhrther, that the court may sentence a soldier to be pat 
under stoppages^ not exceeding two-thlr^ of hi» cUUy 
pay, until any loss or dami^ dona t<^ kia horse, amfl, 
accoutrements^ &c., by his misconduct, shall be made 

iJow, however necessary it may be for the mainte- 
sance of dncipline on the line of march, that the ioflic- 
tlon of the only puniishment in many cases capable af 
being a;pplied, vi2. corporal punishment, should be 
within the power of a Regimental Court Martial; and, 
however reasonable and Just it may be, that, if a soldier 
has by misconduct injured the arms &c. which are 
intrusted to him to use carefully in the execution of 
hU duty, he should be compelled at his own costs to 
Impair the damage, we <]^uestion very much the legality 
of the 79th Article of War, so far as it departs in tiese 
partknlais fW)m the Mutiny Act The Act is the whole 
and sole foundation for the authority of the Courts 
CiL&^i Courts Martial. The preamble recites, that the 
keeping a standing army, except with the conseat of 
Parhament, Is against law. It recites, as the reason of 
the Act, that no man can be forejudged of lile and limb, 
or subjected in time of peace to any kind of punish- 
ment,, except according to the known laws of the realm; 
and that it is requisite for retaining the forces in their 
du^, that they should be brought to a more exepipki? 
tfnd^peedty punishment thd?L the forms of law wiH iflo^J 
ixtim AdFfh^pik)eeed^ to «nact, t&(t tirtiia vm' 



\Kxj oAooes shall be pnnidiAble in specific modes. In 
the 4Ui section, which gives power to the Queen to 
make Articles of War, it is provided, that no person 
abiDy by those Artidssy ^besabject» with reference to 
aoj crimes made ponishableby this Act, to be punished 
ioanjr msmieri^ich ahall not aecord with the proTi* 
aoM of this Act." 

It is dear, therefore, that the authority of the Crown 
ts Bske Articles of War is given and limited by the 
Act; and the only question is^ whether, on the con- 
fferactkin of the Act^ it intends that Regimental Courts 
Xirtial ihoold baTe the powers in question. Having 
regard to the drcnmstance, that, in the clauses of the 
Adidsting to Greneral and District Courts Martial, 
ooiponl punishment is specifically mentioned; and 
that, ia the 9th clause, relating to the powers of Dis- 
trict GoqiIb Martaaly stoppages out of the soldier's pay to 
Bib good any damage done by lus misconduct, are also 
ipedfiealiy mentioned, we confess it appears to us, that 
the omiarioa of powers to inflict either of these punish- 
rnota, in the 10th clause, must be held intentional; 
aad that the powers given in that re^Mct, by the 79th 
Article of War, are not in conformity with the Mutiny 
Ad; and this conclusion u strengthened as to any ge- 
ttnl power of making stoppages of pay, by the intro- 
iaetkminthe 10th clause itself of a specific power to 
it^ pay to a particular extent, via. one penny per day. 
How the legality of a sentence of corporal punish- 
]Mit» psised under the 79th Article of War, is to be 
tried, is a distinct question, perhaps not of easy solu- 
^ We apprehend it to be dear, that no ordinary 
Govt of Justice baa original juriadiction to inquire into 
the natter. According to Lord Erskine's opinion, (re- 
ftmd to above), the proper course, it seems, woidd be 
to petition the Crown to refer it to the Judges for their 
opinkni on the lawfulness of the sentence ; and the case 
which he mentions would afford a precedent for that 
covR. If the Judges returned an opinion against it, 
there ean be little doubt that the Crown would annul 
"Kh Kntence. But if the Crown should refuse to refer 
^ qoeation to the Judges, or, having referred it, should 
'^ to act on their opinion, we know of no course

A Praetkal TntOm on ike Law of EtkOeg fir Lifi. 
By Axnuw BzsBST, of Lincoln's Inn, Esq., Barrister 
at Law. 8eo. /p. 386. [^Sksnenj 4f NnvUm^X 

Our only regret, after perusing this work, was, that 
its scone had not been extended so as to embrace estatea 
of freehold aenerally, instead of being confined to estatea 
for life. Tne profession is sufficienUy supplied, in vsp 
rious shapes, with minute and recent information on 
the subject of estates for years, and other chattel in- 
terests— a branch of the law, which, in modem times, 
has grown into such luxuriance and extent, as quite to 
oversliadow its elder and once more important co-scions ; 
but there is no recent work in which the learning as to 
freehold estates is to be found arranged in an accessible 
form, and treated with sufficient minuteness and atiCtl- 
racy. So far as his plan extends, Mr. Bisset has 8up-< 
plied this want with great learning and ability. He is 
deeply read in the old reports and text books; and yet 
never obtrudes upon his reader any of their antiquated 
quaintnesses or obsolete conceits or distinctions, but 
uses such fossil judicial remains as his researches have 
brought to light, rather with a view to illustrate and 
interpret the modem revelations of the bench than to 
overthrow or shake our &ith in them. Without at- 
tuning, as, indeed, he does not appear to have aimed 
at, the remarkable conciseness of Burton's work, our 
author has produced a treatise, which, like the ^ Com- 
pendium" of that lamented writer, is at once practical 
and profound; concise, but, at the same time, complete in 
its statement of the law, and accurate and critical in its 
expositidn of its grounds. We hope that Mr. Biaset's la- 
bours will not s&m here, but will be devoted to the elu- 
cidation of other divisions of the law of real property ; 
some of which, rince the recent le^slative changes, af- 
ford more scope for original comment than the subject 
of the work before us, which, however, contains much 
that is of immediate practical interest, as will be per- 
ceived from a slight outline of its contents. After dis- 
cussing the defimtion of estates for life and of freehold, 
and the diviuon of estates for life into estates absolute 
and determinable, our author treats of the estate tail 
after poenbility of issue extinct, and the privil^fes of 
the tenant in respect of waste. After fully treating of 
the other kinds of estates for life by operation of law, 
namely, estates by the curtesy and estates in dower, he 
proceeds to the conrideration of estates created by ex- 
press grant or limitation ; of estates pour autre vie ; of 
the forfeiture and alienaticr oi estates for life ; of the 
law of mener, as it affects estates for life (and herein of 
a matter of considerable practical importance, via. the 
merger of charges) ; of the exerdse of powers bjr tenant 
for nfe ; of renewals of leaseholds ; of the apportionment 
of rent and incumbrances ; of estovers, emDlements, and 
fixtures: and lastly, of waste. 

The chapter on the Law of Meiger as it affects Life 
Estates^ though it displays considerable learning, is one 
of the least satisfiactorY parts of the book. The subject 
of the mener of one life estate in another is unaccount- 
ably passed over without any notice beyond a discus- 
sion of Mr. Preston's doctrine, that there may be meiger 
of an estate in an aj^tia/ estate— « discusrion which ends 
in no definite result, and throws scaroel}r any light on 
the subject of the merger of life estates in each other. 
Mr. Preston's positions on this branch of the law of 
meiger are, that an estate may merge in an estate in re- 
mainder or reversion that is not less than the }>articular 
estate; that an estate for the tenant's own life is greater 
than an estate pour autre vie ; that all estates pour au- 
tre vie are equal; and that, therefore, one estate pour 
autre vie may meige in another estate pour autre vie, 
or hi an estate for the tenant's own life; but that an 
estate lor tenant's own lift cannot ineiB« in an estata 


T|!R 4URIfT. 

pour autre vie, Mr. Bi^aet disputes Mr. Preston's as- 
sertioD, that a particular estate may merge in an estate 
that is equal to, and not greater than, the particular 
««tat«; l)at)Mta1^esiwnoQce«tailof1te«tiiBrp«o^- 
«iiitii8 0t»ted aioave. The ]x>tttlQii. that m Mtftte pour 
autM vie will magB iu an estate m the tcwnt'i «wn 
life, but not vice vetsil^ on the ground that the letter 
»tSitp Is fre^Ux in quaatity tb^ the former, spears to 
« supported by the authorities. (10 Ed. i^Suif. 8; 12 
len*%U; Perkins, 113; Godb. ^1, fvindhim and 
7u/A«r5*tf «W, argu., U wp. 8), fourth Resolution, 
; EoD, Abr. 49B<B:J, pi. ? jCo. Utt. 42. a. ; Tin. Abr. 
leiver^ f, Q. 4). Thus, u a lease is made to A. for 
the life of B« mtbout impeachment of wast^ yemaia- 
der to A- for nis own life, be is punishable K>r waste, 
ibr the first estate is merg^; fGodb. 52); but if the 
first lease be to A. for bis own life, remainder to him 
for the life ofB., it is otl^rwise* (lb.)* ^^® sound- 
ixess of the doctrine may well be ouBstioned, for it in- 
volves the absurd assumption, tnat two life estates, 
Which the law considers as ef^ual when divided in 
p wnership, become unequal tlie moment they aie nnited 
in one persoQ. A necessai^y consequence is, thaL if A. 
De seised for the Mfe of B«, and B. in reminder for life 
of A«, ][a limitation which m^ be perfectly valid^ iu>on 
the union of the two estates m A^ he will be seisedTfor 
liis own -1^ simply ; but, uyon the union of the two 
fiatates in B*, he would be seised for his own life in pos- 
session, with remainder to himself for the life of A. 

An estate m t^ after possibility of issue extinct is 
considered to be, in quantity, no more than a life estate ; 
and« in the third resolution in Bowles's sase^ (11 Rep* 
163; SowU^ V. Berrie, 1 Rol. 177^ S. C), where Ae B- 
initation was to the use of T. and A*t bis wife, for their 
lives, sans waste, with remainder to the use or the first 
issue mal^ &o^ with remainder to the use of the heirs 
fnale of f. ana A.^ and T. died, leavii^ issue by A. 
which issue died^ living; A^ it was said, that, because 
Ihe wife has the estate for life by the limitatiojo of the 
j>arty. and the estate which she had in the remainder, 
90^ 01 the tenancy in tail after pos^bility, was not a 
larger estate in ({uantity. and therefore aould not meige 
the estate tor life, for tliis cause, the wife was not te- 
fiant in tail after possibilil^ £ln possession] ; bu^ as it 
was also resolve^ that she had the privily of tenant 
in t^l after possibility, on account of the inheritance 
ihat was once ix^ her, the resolution tipon the auction 
of meiger, amounted to nothing more than a dictum ; 
.and is, we believe, ^le only authority ogainst Mr* JPres- 
ion'a position, that i u estate may mei^ ij;i an equal es- 
tate. The case of IViUiam v. Willuuns, <12 £ast» 206 ; 
15 Ves. 41fl.}, M. as Mr. i-i^iset has shewn, no authority 
either wsy. Hiere is a passage^ howev^^ in Co. litt. 
^1299. b., where it is said, »th|U^ if a man kaseth to A. 
4uriiu[ the life of B^ the venuuode^ to bim during tke 
lif^ 9fC^ if the lessee commit waste, an action shall lie 
against nim ; and as ihe oase is put as an instance of a 
tenant's liabilitjr ior waste, notwithsta^ing a remain- 
der in himself, it is evident tliat Jjord Coks thought 
there was no inei){er of the first estate. Upon these au- 
thorities howevei^ Mr. Bisset considers it to be estab- 
iished, against Mr. ('reston's opinion, that l^iere cannot 
bo any mei]^r as between eoual estates of freehold, 
^ow, when it is rexnembered, tww completely this po- 

S'tion is oppotied by all analogy, and how many old au>- 
loritiea (of greater intriosic weight than these eited by 
Mr. Bisset) on related points in the doctrine of memr 
san be produced, which liave been repeatedly overrukd, 
ve think that Mr. Freston'a opinion is entitled to more 
aspect than is shewn it by ao jwsitive an aesertion of a 
0irect|v contrary conclusion. The analogy is 4istipct)y 
4he oilier way,; for Mr. Preston has shewn^ thai one 
conditional lee may mei;ge In another;,^^ ^fS^ Cwv. 


•ne estate by ^tdtuta ffr elegit mr »mi in au^bfr; 
(Dighim V. Ormville^ 2 Yept. ^8)^ Coflis, P. C. 64); 
and that a term of years may meige in a reversion even 
fsT a shorter term of years ; iHufines y. Rav^h(^m^ Cro. 
El.Mt; ^Sll^0ft«y..SrM^.6Madd.66); andtbereis 
^vieiKly no reason why a Afl ew sti l mie ^e«id ap^y 
t# estates for Ufa fmi that wkiclrgQwvfM astites ac U- 
heritance, or for years. As an instance gf i^i old aa- 
thority en the law of mei;^r, now overrule, take iWiy 
y.AUeny (Cro. 13. 173; 1 Xeon. 303; Qwen, 97), where 
it was held, (contrary to what b now wellsetded law), 
<l»t, whsB leasee for t ven^ yean maketk a leaas fbr tan

to the same effect, and which are npt laW| art to be 
found in Shc^. Touch. 3^1 ; Co. LLtt. 2!73. Again, in 
Burd V. F<y, (2 Ron. Jlep. 4W ; i« Vln. Abr, 315), it 
was Mfreed, that, in the case of a lease far life to A., it- 
mainder Ibr lift to B^ and B. mwU his estate to A^ 
thia ia en eoBUngiii&nieQt, aad \k^ Ant teaaea is iwm- 
diate tenant to the lesaor. Now, this oosKBlusioB is 
wrong, if it be law, that an estate for one*s own life 
will tiot meige in an estate pour autre vie. Other in- 
fltancea are to be found among the old authorities on 
tlie iiaeig«r of eetates as between knsband and wift.

Mr. Biaset seems to be especially ambitious of cof- 
reetiiig Mr. Pieston; thus, in treating of the exceptions 
to the genMial ruie reapeotixig vnerger, in easea whm 
OM of Uie estates IS keM in autre drat, he has thesB re- 
merka: ^* Mir. Prestofi puts the folLewing case as see ^f 
great diffieulty : a hnahand has a term for years in mbt 
of his wife, and the reversion in fee descends to nis 
wife ; * in this case,' he s^s, ' it is difficult to anticipate I 
the judgment of the courts of justice, and no caae has 
eceuvrad whidi deeidea the point.' The solntion givM 
sSbo>i^ of ^ caaa ofPure^ y. Bogerp, aaema eqaaiiy 
i4>pliceble hf«e. Here, aa ia that cw, both estates (w 
held in the same right; therefore, why should not the 
ffenera^ rule apply, and meiger be the consequence. 
Now, we do not see that this is at all dear; the excep- 
tions in the law of merger are all intended to prevent 
ii^iiatiGa ; the tnjustiee whidi woiAd happen iroiefgff 
were allowed in eaaea of the aeqfiisitien of estates b|tet 
of Ifvw and in autie droit. *"' 
husbanil ia possessed 

then the inheritanoe (.w«^v-^« ^ *.»« ».*.», - — -. , 

no meiger{ because the -descent was an aet of law whidj 
thp husband could not prevei;it; and, therefore, shall 
not turn to hi^ prejudice. (PlaH v. Reo^^ Cro. Ja?- 
275; Bulst. 113). Now, the term ^hicb tjw husbajul 
has in his marital right^ and the freehold which be has 
tn right of his wife, are not held precisely 4n tU$ same 
right; for tbe term he may dispose of absoliitely; »» 
it is for etl purposei^ except his wife's right 1^' eum- 
vorshk) in ease ne makes no disposition of it, hw ovn 
properly; but the freehold is not his otvn in the ^m 
senses and, therefore, to hold the term to be roeiigea *p 
the case put by Mr. Preston, would occasion the veiy 
same inconvenience ani injustice, ihat the o^'^'^.®^*! 
to avoid in the case of plait v. fleop. Indeed, in i^ 
vejty case, as appears from Bulstrode's r^ort, Cro*^ *^ 
was evidently of opinion, that merger would not •**'*J^ 
take place, td though bath estates were held \^y^^?ryy 
right ; for he inclined to think, that, if the husbaaOW 
had issue l^ his wife after the inheritapoe desceiidea » 
her, so as thereby to become entitled to be ^JJ*"/"^
