The petitions from the county of Oxford, and the town of Berwick-upon-Tweed have been sent to Sir ROUNDELL PALMER for presentation. In the former case, five-sixths of the solicitors practising in the county have signed the petition; in the latter, the solicitors are unanimous in supporting the morement. We may mention that all petitions which have not yet been returned to the secretaries of the Legal Education Association should be sent to Mr. LONGBOURNE, the honorary secretary, on or before the 19th instant, as Sir RoundELL PALMER proposes to move his resolutions in the House of Commons on the 1st of March.

WITII reference to the Tichborne cise a Lincolnshire solicitor writes to us: “I cannot understand how it is that the Tichborne case is conducted in such ap;arently flagrant violation of the law of maintenance, if I rightly understand that law. Are not all the parties who have taken bonds liable to be indicted for supporting an action in which they have no interest ?" Clearly not. They hare simply bought the claimant's security. Undoubtedly, they know that the bonds will be worthless unless he succecais, but this does not constitute maintenauce. If the money were advanced as a consideration for obtaining a share of the proceeds of the suit it would be champerty; and if advance without any security, erpressly to promote the suit, it would be maintenance. The existence of the bonds excludes the question of maintenance. It is not for us to say whether some partizans of the claimant have brought themselves within the law referred to by our correspondent.

The United States law is far in advance of ours in the legal remedies it allows to women. It gives them a right of action for slandered chastity without calling for proof of special damage, and it has sustained an action by a wife for enticing away her husband. It was argued by the court which has decided this point, that if by marriage the husband gains a right to damages for the loss of his wife's society, the same result for stronger reasons should follow the loss of the husband's consortium by the wife. The court concludes that in the highest sense, the wife is the ward of the court, and as such, under the generous policy of the law, reliered of the old idea of conjugal servitude, which placed her as a chattel under the control of her husband, that she is entitled to its protection and aid in the enforcement of her rights; for it is only consistent with the relations into which the husband and wife have entered, that each must have their separate interest, controlled only by mutual affection and regard, which is subject, nevertheless, to the protection of the law.

The Law and the Lawyers.

.

MR. CHARLEY bas issued his two Bills for the better protection of women and infants. The former empowers a single woman with child, or having become a mother, to apply to a justice of the peace for a summons against the putative father, whereupon the justice may make an order on the putative father for the expenses

consequent on the birth of her child,” and a weekly sum for the maintenance and education, or funeral of ler child, such order to be enforced by distress and commitment. Power is proposed to be given to Boards of Guardians to recover the cost of maintaining an illegitimate child from the putative father. As a kindness, and no doubt a compliment, to our County Court Judges, they are to exercise the same jurisdiction as is vested in justices. We trust that they will feel grateful. As to the protection of infant life, it is proposed to enact that a licence be taken out by every person having two or more children to nurse for hire, and persons receiving two or more

The dinner which we stated is to be given to Mr. Justice QUAIN by the Northern Circuit, has been arranged to take place at the Albion, in Aldersgate-street, to-day (Saturday). The case of Slater v. Pinuter, which our readers will recollect decided that seizure by an execution-creditor before notice of an act of bankruptcy committed by the debtor, without sale before
