The public, and in some instances the Profession, is apt to forget that County Courts are no longer the Small Debts Courts of 1847, and, as time goes on, County Court Judges must take a higher professional standing, as exercising a jurisdiction as important, though not so highly paid, as that of the Chief Judge in Bankruptcy, the Judge of the High Court of Admiralty, and of the Judges of Common Law and Equity within liberal limits; and the circuits cannot pay too high respect and consideration to those Judges who ably and conscientiously discharge their duties.

We have abolished imprisonment for debt in England, but not in Scotland or Ireland. Nevertheless, the Judgments Estension Act of 1868 remains in force. An anomalous condition of things is hereby created, as pointed out by the Irish Law Times. That journal remarks: “The Judgments Extension Act has been found very useful by English money-lenders--in the case of young officers of the army against whom they have obtained English judgments-for they can, at a very trifling expense, register their judgments in Ireland and obtain immediate execution; many arrests have been made of Englishmen coming over here, against whom judgments had been entered up in the Courts at Westminster, and thus the anomaly has been practically illustrated bow a person who has contracted a debt in England, where arrest for debt has been abolished since 1869, may, by visiting this part of the United Kingdom, find his way, without notice, into a debtor's prison.” When will there cease to be exceptional legislation of this order? The Government and Parliament cannot complain that attention has not been drawn to the subject, as we have repeatedly spoken of the absurdity of haring different bankruptcy laus prevailing in different parts of the kingdom. We trust that the anomalous position of imprisonment for debt as between England and Ireland will chcit a general remedy for existing grievances.

The United States Courts are in conflict as to whether a passenger can recover against a railway company if he puts his elbow ont of window and suffers injury. An analogous question recently arose in our Court of Queen's Bench, the dispute being whether a plaintiff bad been guilty of contributory negligence in standing up in a railway carriage during transit. Mr. MONTAGUE CHAMBERS, for the railway company, contended that passengers are bound to sit still, and that if they are restless and come against the door, which is improperly secured, and fall out, and are injured, they camot recover. We think it right to make the view of the court thoroughly known. Mr. Justice BLACKBURN said : “ They" (i. e. the company) are responsible for the neglect by their servants of due care in the management of the carriages. They need not, certainly, take precautions against any extraordinary proceedings of the passengers, but it cannot be said that it is extraordinary for a passenger to stand up and look out of window." The Ameri. can law stands thus: In Illinois and Wisconsin, a passenger may recover for injury to a protruding arm, but he cannot in New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Indiana. “ The prudent traveller, before he undertakes to lean out of the car window must be careful to learn through what jurisdiction he is moving.” Happily we have no conflict of judicial authority on the point; but it will be always a question whether the conduct of a passenger is “ extraordinary," the company in that event being exempt.

We have all heard of the ill effects produced by the history of JACK SHEPPARD, Dick Turpin, and the like, upon the juvenile offenders of England. It is with regret that we perceive, from a case recently heard_in Massachusetts, that the “ Foul Play" of Messrs. ReadEazd BOCCICAULT is charged with being at the bottom of a suit by seamen for wages and loss of clothes arising out of a pretended scuttling of a ship. The scuttling appears to have existed only in the imagination of one of the crew, who had been recently reading “ Foul Play," and who conceived that he saw the plot of that novel being carried out before his eyes. Each incident was coincident according to the seaman—a great deal too much so, in the opinion of the learned Judge to make the theory of the libellants probable. A writer in The American Law Review, commenting upon this case, remarks :-“ It is interesting in connection with this illustration of the effect of fiction upon the
