Mrs. Jones had pleaded the statute of limitations, to defeat which the plaintiff produced a written acknowledgment of the debt.

The plaintiff had written to Mrs. Jones desiring her to send him a statement of her accounts in order that he might consult counsel upon her affairs she hud done so, and she had added the item of her debt to the plaintiff. On the part of the defendant it was contended and 46 feet was not such a case, unless it could bo shown that irreparable injury would ensue by allowing the building to be used. The case, therefore, rested on the uses as a custom house and for bed rooms. And that question depended on the construction of the 16th section of the act that section provided that the whole of the land to be sold to the company should be appropriated to and used for the railway, and the purposes thereof, except such part as should be reauired bv the Board of Ordnance, or for the Duroose Mr.

After the date of the will, before the testator's death, the mortgage money was paid off and the property was reconveyed searches which have recently taken place by the police in private houses, and apparently to the con Exchequer. Retirement, oe Mr. Jostice Patteson. Gassiott had claimed a lien on certain wines which he had sold the bankrupt, but on which ho had afterwards obtained security and that the assignees, after cxaraininir Mr.

Gassiott and other witnessesat a private meeting, were content to admit that the lien was a good one. The balance-sheet showed that the assets would produce nearly to the testator to the ordinary uses to bar dower. It having been intimated that an address to Mr. Justice Pattoson would be made by the Attorney-General, on the ing to tne ptamtin, so negligent ana careless a manner, that both the interest and principal had been lost. Such a loss was very serious to the plaintiff, inasmuch as besides the interest which she had received from a former investment of her 3502., and a Bmall pension, she had no means of maintaining herself and her, two children.

The first investment which had been made of the 3502. was by lending it to a gentleman who had granted an annuity for the loan and paid 8 per cent, interest. Mr. Pelichet died in the month of June, 1844, and some time after his It also appeared that the testator before the date of his will had purchased other property at an auction without any part of the bar, on this, the last occasion of his occupying a seat on the bench, at ah early hour there was a large written contract, ana mis property was atterwarus conveyed to him to uses to bar dower The teBtator died in 1821 zus. in the pound; and he hoped that the opinion which his Honour had expressed at a former meeting, would lead to an arrangement under which some plan for realising tha stock might be adopted the young men, tho bankrupt's sons, might be saved from ruin and the creditors mirfit ant.

Loaden was acquainted with a Sir Gregory Lewin, a barrister, to whom he had advanced 1,0002. Sir Gregory afterwards applied to him for a further loan of 4002., and he then agreed to lend him the 3502. of the plaintiff at 5 per cent, interest, which he did iu March, 1845. This investment was effected without the consent or knowledge of the plaintiff. Subsequently the defendant informed her of it.

without re-publishing his will, and the question now raised was whether there was a revocation of the will with regard to the property mortgaged and the property conveyed after the date of the will. The Vice-Chancellor Baid the rule upon which the. court had always decided was that where an estate was re-vested in a testator after the date of the will with the same qualities which previously existed then there was no revocation, and fo also where there had been a contract for purchase of an estate which was conveyed to the testator in the terms of the contract, but if the estate was re-vested with different limitations, so that ia fact the testator became entitled to a different species of property, then it acted nsj revocation of the will. Various authorities had been cited to show that this was the rule, and although the judges had always expressed their disapprobation of such a rule they had acted upon it. His At the rising of the court, The Attorney-General said My lords, on behalf of my brethren of the bar may I crave permission to express a few words of regret to the learned judge who is about to quit this court.

Mr. Justice Patteson, I am charged by my brethrea of the bar to convey to you their common regret that they see you for the last time ou the bench, on which' for now 22 years, you have occupied a seat with infinite honour to yourself, and to the unbounded satisfaction of the profession. As we are about to lose you it will not perhaps be unbecoming in me to offer, nor unwelcome to you to receive, the expression of the sense of the entire profession, and told her that the securities which Sir Gregory Lewin had deposited with him consisted of a promissory note, twenty-two shares in the Sheffield and Retford Bank, which were stated to be worth 112. per share, and twelve quarter shares in the Manchester Ashton-under- Lyne and Sheffield Railway Company.

In re Jearsad. This was the certificate meeting in the case of Jearrad, builder, of Oxford-street. The bankrupt owed 2,6722. to unsecured creditors, and 3 3152. to thos holding security: his assets were put down at 8702 tha property held by creditors at 1,3152.

Profits, 3 9812 -1; i tradf expenses, 4,1262. domestic ditto deficiency at the commencement of tiie account 3672. Mr. Rhodes, for the assignees, stated that it was not their intention to offer any opposition. Mr.

Lawrance stated that the bankrupt had succeeded to) his father's business, not a yery profitable one, which he found encumbered with a large amount of expenditure for annuities and other matters. Proceedings in chancery were going on with reference to some property of the bankrupt's wife and if these were successful, the c-tate would benefit to the amount of 2,0002. About 1,0002. of assets had already been realised. His Honour granted a certificate of the third class.

Gilbert the Honour had also the same dislike to the rule, but he felt himself constrained to follow it. In tho present case he thoughtwith regard to the mortgaged property that when it was reconveyed to the testator to usea to bar dower he had thereby acquired a different estate, and as to the purchased property he thought that also must follow the rule, and that the will being revoked as to both estates, they would go to the heir at law of the testator. younger; rarqunarv. wuiis.

Yesterday. Sittings in Banco. At the sitting of the court several judgments, in cases which had been argued, were delivered by Lord Campbell. Those of most public interest were the following The Qceen v. Pollock.

Mr. Ramshay, Ex-Jddcie oi? THE LlVEKPOOL COTNTY CotJET. This was a rule to show cause why an information, in the nature of a quo warranto, should hot be granted, calling on Joseph Pollock, to show by what authority he exercised the office of judge of the County Court of Liverpool. The ground of the application was, that when Mr. Pollock was appointed, the office was not vacant, and that Mr-Ramshay, the former judge, had not been lawfully removed from it.

The question the court had to consider was whether on the affidavits which had been filed Mr. Ramshay was entitled to try the question of the legality of his removal by means of a quo warranto. The point turned on the construction of the 9 and 10 Vic. c. 95, s.

18, which enacted that the Lord Chancellor and where the district was in the county of Lancaster, the Chancellor of the Duchy should have power to remove a judge of the County Court for "inability" or "misbehaviour."

Edwaiids v. Edwards. The Master of the Rolls save iudament in rtiis the money. In consequence of the defendant not coming to any satisfactory terms, the present action was brought. Evidence was then called in support of the plaintiff's case.

With respect to the Sheffield and Retford Bank shares, it appeared that when Sir Gregory Lewin died he owed the bank upwards of 3002. The bank had since failed, and there had been a call of 162. a shareJ when its affairs were wound up. Mr. Knowles then addressed the jury for the defendant, and contended that his client had not been guilty of any negligence in lending the money to Sir Gregory Lewin, who was a responsible man.

He lived in a substantial house in Harley-street, and kept a carriage and servants. Upon his marriage, his father, by a marriage settlement, settled 3002. a year upon him aud his wife. An uncle of Sir Gregory's had left him 10,0002., and the proceeds of his professional exertions had always been considerable, and in the year 1842 they had amounte'd to as much as 2,0002. Sir Gregory's life was insured for 13,0002., but at his deailh it was unfortunately found out that the policy was of no value, he having raiBed money upon it, and thereby forfeited it.

He submitted that tho defendant was not to blame because it had turned out that Sir Gregory died insolvent. He had lived in a manner calculated to deceive people, but that was no reason that it should be now said that the defendant had been guilty of great negligence in lending the plaintiff's money to him. The defendant himself had lent Sir Gregory 1,0002., for which, as security, Sir Gregory pledged his household furniture. Such was the confidence which the preserved that honourable retirement which you have so well earned and, with full hearts, we, one and all, bid you a respectful and affectionate farewell. Mr.

Justice Patteson said Mr Attorney-General and Gentlemen of tho Bar, I receive with proud satisfaction the kind and flattering address you have made to me. Of its entire sincerity I cannot have a doubt, and although I am painfully conscious that what you have said of my conduct on the bench is very far beyond what I deserve, yet I will not be guilty of the affectation of denying that, coming as it does from so enlightened a body of gentlemen, it can be wholly undeserved. At least, it shows that if a public man, without being pre-eminent for ability, exerts those faculties which God has given him honestly and industriously, he will be sure to receive the mead of public approbation. I thank God that I have done so. I regret that while still in the possession of much bodily and mental power I am compelled to retire from a profession in which I have always delighted.

An infirmity under which I have long laboured renders imperative on me to do so. It is not now for the first time that I have contemplated such a step, but I have had on the one side to guard myself against a premature retirement while still in the possession of mental and bodily health, and on the other hand against clinging to office when by reason of my infirmity I ran the risk of perilling the ends of justice. I have endeavoured to avoid either extreme, but I vtt fear I have deferred that step too lone. which arose on the construction of the will of William Edwards, who died, leaving a. son and two daughters, and who, by his will, devised his real nronertv to his widow for life with remainder to the children, with a provision that if any of the children hould die without issue, the share of such child sl.ould be divided between the other two.

Mr. Bagley opposed on the part of the Union Bank, and Mr. Macrae also opposed for creditors Mr. Cooke and Mr. Sargood supported.

Iu this ease the debts were large, aud the insolvent alleged that there were large sums owing to him. His insolvency was attributed to City improvements, whereby he had to remove from Budge-row to Queen street, and lost a ready money trade. Since the former hearing on Friday an account had been prepared. Mr. Bagley now asked for time to examine the account prepared; and Mr.

Macrae required other accounts, according, he said, to the rules of the court. Mr. Cooke resisted an adjournment, and contended that the insolvent had filed proper accounts. Secina that the creditors had made the insolvent within the few days a bankrupt, and that the case was transferred to the other court, there was no benefit to be gained by requiring other accounts. Counsel for the opposition said the ease, by the bankruptcy, had assumed another aspect.

It would, however, be better to adjourn the case for the present, and Mr. Bagley said it would be seen whether the proceeding had been got up ou the part of the insolvent. His point 'of opposition was that the insolvent had given preferences, and until now he had not heard of the bankruptcy. The insolvent denied that he had anything to do with the bankruptcy. He was served with a notice of baak-ruptcy on Friday lost.

Mr. Cooke claimed the adjudication of this court. All the property was transferred to the Court of bankruptcy, and in that court the creditors couldepposc. Mr. Bagley hoped the court would adjourn the case, in order to see whether the adjudication iu bankruptcy was annulled or confirmed.

If the case was adjudicated upon in this court, and the adjudication in mkruptcy was annulled, the creditors would have great cause of complaint. The Chief Commissioner acquiesced ia an adjournment for a week, in order to ascertain whether the bankruptcy was The case was adjourned to Tuesday, and tho bail enlarged. In be John Willis hue.

He (Mr. Knowles) therefore submitted that his client had been guilty of no negligence in investing the money of the plaintiff. being drawn up in the words of the act, they were to presume that the Chancellor of the Duchy had exercised his jurisdiction properly until the contrary was shown.

But they still thought that it was open to Mr. 'Ramshay to show that he was removed on improper evidence, or that the complaints against him were not such as to disqualify him, or that his conduct did not amount to inability or misbehaviour" under the act. On such affidavits the court would grant a rule to show cause for a quo warranto, with a view to his restoration to his office. The court was to see that judges and other functionaries did not exceed their authority. The Chancellor of the Duchy could only remove a judge after hearing the party accused, nor could he act without hearing evidence, nor had he any authority to remove when the causes shown did not nmount to "inability or misbehaviour." When, however, the party had had a fair hearing, when the charges were "inability and misbehaviour," and evidence had been hoard, the court could not inquire into the truth of the charaes or the gineer, should bring an action at law against Mr.

The natural construction of this language was that those functionaries might remove without appeal, for inability or misbehaviour," of which they were constituted the judges.
