Tu United Law Clerks Society has proved a great benefit to the most useful of the subordinate members of the legal profession, and the success which has attended its operations has been to a great extent owing to the zcal and energy of its secretary, Mr. HARRY ROGERS, who has been connected with it for some quarter of a century. We are glad to hear that a movement is on foot to present him with a testimonial; and Mr. W. C. Hall, solicitor, of Lincoln's-inn-Fields, has kindly consented to act as treasurer of the fund. The payment of the law officers of the Crown has hitherto been regulated upon an absurd system. As if their usual emoluments were not sufficient, they have been aggravated by every possible device-complimentary briefs, and fees for doing nothing. No possible objection, therefore, can be taken to the Treasury Minute of last December which has just been published, and which gives the law officers fixed salaries in addition to fees for actual personal service. All extraordinary receipts, such as fees paid by attorneys for pro formâ matters, are to be handed over to the Exchequer.

LEAVE has been given to bring in a Bill to amend the Municipal Acts with respect to the division of boroughs into wards, and to the increase of the number of aldermen, councillors, and assessors in certain cases; a Bill to amend the law as to the custody of infants; a Bill to amend the practice as to new trials in criminal cases; and a Bill to amend the law relating to the disposition of penalties in certain cases of municipal corporations and other local governing bodies. Another is wanted-namely, a Bill to provide that a relator shall recover the costs of quo warranto proceedings against members of governing bodies in towns not corporate.
It is difficult to understand the grounds upon which Mr. Bass bases his Bill to abolish all legal means of recovering debts exceeding 408. in amount. Why stop at 40s.? Mr. Bass would probably reply that people who get into debt for such a small amount as 408. ought not to be allowed to get into debt at all. The argument must be this or nothing; for it would be absurd to say that tradesmen are not to give small credit, and it would be utterly ridiculous to enact that a person contracting a debt of 41s. should be compellable to pay it back, whilst a person owing 40s. should be exempt. In the year 1870 it appears that in the Gloucester County Court, for example, 2087 plaints out of 3186 were within the scope of Mr. Bass's Bill. We do not for a moment anticipate that the Bill will become law.

We most heartily welcome the announcement that at length the Government have in view for the vacant County Court Judgeship a gentleman whose appointment will give general satisfaction. This innovation upon the settled system of appointing Judges according to political or personal considerations was unexpected, and the lively pleasure derived by Government from this isolated act of propriety was plainly apparent in the speech of the ATTORNEY-GENERAL. We are impatient to know who is this firstrate man who will accept an office involving great labours with incommensurate pay subject to future arrangements” of an indefinite character.

Wuust on the subject of County Court Judges, we may point out that re-arrangements as to work are taking place without any consideration of the remuneration of the Judges who are to be affected by them. The Liverpool Daily Post, in an article on the “promotion of lawyers,” dilates upon the admirable work done by the courts in that town. Speaking of the Judges engaged, it says, "they make unexampled and most successful efforts to cope with their enlarged range of duties, but find that work of doubled extent and responsibility, though done with such ability as rarely to provoke the revision of superior tribunals, is unattended with any advance of pay or consideration.” Our contemporary then, alluding to the County Court, expresses a vain hope, that " the greatness and efficiency of this locai tribunal will be recognised in the most conclusive way by a reasonable draught upon the national exchequer.” We have frequently urged increased liberality as a wise measure, but the Government has retrograded in this respect, and it is bardly to be expected that any change for the better will take place under the present administration.
The sudden death of Mr. McTAGGART, who was so recently transferred to the County Court Judgeship of Marylebone is much to be regretted. He was more familiarly known to the Profession as Mr. Ellis
, the series of Reports with which that name is connected having been extensively used for a considerable period.
VOL. LII.-No. 1512.
It is stated that on the recent trial of the Rev. Mr. Esglisil, the question whether a lease for a term exceeding three years from the making, and which under the 8 & 9 Vict. c. 106, is void at law as a lease, can be considered " a valuable security," was reserved by the Lord CHIEF JUSTICE for the Court of Criminal Appeal. Assuming that the indictment is framed under one of the sections of the 24 & 25 Vict. c. 96, other than the 27th, which relates to the stealing or fraudulent destruction or obliteration of “any valuable security other than a document of title to lands," the opinion of the LORD CHIEF JUSTICE that such a document was “a valuable security," seems almost free from doubt, since it is perfectly settled that such an instrument though void at law as a lease amounts in equity to an agreement for a lease, and that specific performance of such an agreement may be decreed : (Laswell v. Parker, 2 De G. & J. 559.) So also it seems clear that such a document is a “ document of title to lands” within the 28th section of the abovenamed Act.
ENGLAND, accountant and money lender, for a sum of £1166, and on the 15th Nor. he caused an execution to be levied upon the goods of the debtor. On the 17th the debtor filed a petition for liquidation by arrangement, whereupon a receiver was appointed. An injunction was granted upon the receiver's application restrain. ing further proceedings by Mr. Saul under his execution, on an undertaking by the receiver to pay damages should the executioncreditor sustain any loss by reason of that injunction; and in consequence of an informality in reference to the meeting of creditors, it became necessary to extend the injunction from time to time until March 1871. At a meeting then held the creditors resolved to accept a composition offered by the debtor, and this court afterwards decided that the execution-creditor was entitled to the proceeds of the sale of the goods seized. The executioncreditor now sought to recover from the receiver the damages and costs consequent upon the injuctions being obtained, including in his claim the extra possession money paid to the sheriff, and a loss which he had sustained by reason of the stoppage of the sale.” The claim of the execution-creditor was upheld, and the receiver declared personally liable for damages and costs.
ATTORNEYS are apt to complain, and justly, that the accountants trespass upon business hitherio transacted by lawyers. We believe the accountants are themselves anxious to avoid collision, and they have formed a society, called “The Society of Accountants in England," the objects of which are declared to be “to promote the acquisition of those branches of knowledge which are essential to the practice of an accountant; to decide upon questions of professional usage or courtesy; and generally to advance the position and interests of the members of the profession.” We observe that candidates for admission as members will be required to pass an examination in mercantile and bankruptcy law, the duties of auditors, liquidators, trustees, and receivers, and the working of liquidations and bankruptcies. If the society is properly governed, the possession of this knowledge by accountants ought not to militate against the interests of the legal profession. The lawyer and the accountant each has his sphere, and when either invades the other there must be confusion and loss.
A BELGIAy publication in an article on "Le Procès TICHIBORNE," takes rather an original view of the liability of the ATTORNEYGENERAL. It remarks: “Le noud du litige résidait dans la question du tatouage. Le sergent Ballantine ignorait que TichBORNE fût tatoué, par la très-bonne raison que son client l'ignorait lui-même: On ne pent pas tout savoir. Mais l'homme qui connaissait ce détail décisif et qui l'avait mis en réserve pour assurer le gain de son procès, c'était précisément M. l'ATTORNEY-GENERAL. N'avait-il pas déclaré, d'ailleurs, et dès le premier jour, que le prétendant était un misérable, un faussaire et un imposteur? Il le disait, parcequ'il en avait la preuve. Il s'est vanté depuis, de Tavoir dissimulée avec soin jusqu'au bon moment. Et c'est luimême qui, se fondant sur ce fait essentiel, va maintenant poursuivre le client de M. BALLANTINE, au nom de la Couronne et de l'ordre public!" On this state of things our contemporary concludes that the ATTORNEY-GENERAL ought to be liable to the TICHBORNE family, upon the analogy of the Alabama affair, to the extent of “ quelques millions pour le dommage qu'il lui a causé en plaidant contre un individu qu'il savait être un imposteur, et qu'il avait le moyen de traduire en police correctionnelle et de faire condamner sur les bancs."
There is a difficulty with the ballot which ought in some manner to be provided for. As the law is, a bet invalidates the vote. If A. bets B., a voter, £5 that C. will not be returned, and B. votes for C., it will be presumed that his vote was influenced by the hope of winning the £5, and on a scrutiny it would be struck off the poll. But this will be impracticable with the ballot, because it cannot be proved for whom B. voted, and consequently from whose poll he is to be disallowed. The facility thus given to bribery by betting will be enormous. Of course if A. were to make many such bets with many electors, the transaction would be so conspicuous that the election judge would not hesitate to declare him to be guilty of corrupt practices, and direct a prosecution; or if he was an agent of the sitting member, it would avoid the election. But although wholesale betting by one man with many electors might be declared to be a corrupt practice on his part, and subject him to prosecution, it would in no way affect the election itself, which could not be avoided unless the better was proved to be an agent, and any difficulty thence arising might be removed by a great number of different persons making each one a separate bet. If, for instance, there were a hundred buyable electors in a borough, and it was desired to buy them with safety and certainty, what more easy than for one hundred persons, non-clectors, to make bets with those one hundred electors of £5 to 5s., that B. would noć be returned? By securing B.'s return, cach of the electors who made the bet would win £5, which would be a sufficient inducement to them to vote for B., and that rote being secret, it could not be removed, on a scrutiny, from B.'s poll if so elected. The only check that can be imposed on this easy form of bribery will be to declare all betting by an elector on the result of the election a corrupt practice punishable by indictment as a misdemeanor. This might deter some, but with almost perfect safety such as the ballot gives to bribery, it would probably be of little efficacy, inasmuch as the bet itself would be a private transaction between the parties and very difficult of proof. The peculiar danger of this form of bribery is that it makes the bribe dependent on the result, and thus avoids the difficulty that is supposed to be an obstacle to bribery in other forms, the impossibility of securing the vote for which the bribe has been given.
The case of McCreight v. Foster (2:3 L. T. Rep. N. S. 2:24), on which we offered some observations (Law Times, vol. xlix, p. 141), has been affirmed, nom. Shaw (Official Liquidator) v. Foster and others, by the House of Lords on the 14th inst, the Peers present were Lords HATHERLEY, CHELMSFORD, WESTBURY, Cairns, and O'Hagas. Our readers will remember that in McCreight v. Foster there was an attempt to render a vendor of leaseholds liable to a person to whom the purchaser had assigned the benefit of the contract, for completing his contract with the original purchaser, on the ground of the vendor having disregarded a notice of the assignment. Lord HATUERLEY, as Chancellor, had reversed the decision of Lord ROMILLY on two grounds, a higher and a lower, the higher being that a vendor is not a trustee within the doctrine of Dearle v. Hall and Loveridge v. Cooper (3 Russ. 1); the lower that the original purchaser had, as the evidence showed, only agreed to make the assignment “ on request,” that there was no evidence that such request had been made, and that if made, there was no evidence that the vendor had notice of it. The lower ground being amply sufficient to support the defendant's case, the House of Lords decided in his favour accordingly. We hope shortly to present a full report of this important decision, and reserve for the present any further comments.
We are very sorry to see that the suggestion to divide the County Court district of Marylebone is not to be adopted. The work of the Marylebone and Brompton Courts is far too heavy for a single Judge. No less than four Judges have been appointed since 1862. Mr. ADOLPHUS, Sir E. Wilmot, Mr. ROBERTSON BLAINE, and Mr. Ellis M'TAGGART. The general opinion was that Mr. ADOLPHUS was killed by overwork ; Sir EARDLEY WILMOT was obliged to retire owing to ill-health, beyond a doubt induced by excessive labour; and Mr. Blaine, in ill-health when appointed, collapsed in a month; and we are informed that Mr. M'Taggart found the work very severe, although he conscientiously increased the number of days on which he sat. Four times the inhabitants of Marylebone and the practitioners in the Court have petitioned successive Lord Chancellors for a division of the district, but without result. Why is this? A very experienced correspondent gives
“ The LORD CHANCELLOR” he says, “ leaves the administration of the courts entirely to the Treasury, and the officials there only think of saving money and not of the efficiency and character or status of the courts. The Judges can never get redress, and scarcely a civil reply to their suggestions. We want a Department of Justice wherein these matters can be managed with dignity and propriety. The Lord CHANCELLOR has a great deal too much to do; he is Chief Judge in Equity, a political chief, member of the Cabinet, Appellate Judge in the House of Lords and in the Court of Chancery. Speaker of the House of Lords, dispenser of immense clerical and lay patronage, and necessarily an attendant on Royalty and the Court. What is required is a separation of the
On Wednesday a novel case under the Bankruptcy Act came before Mr. Registrar MURRAY, sitting as Chief Judge, being an application by an execution-creditor against a receiver for payment of damages sustained by reason of the sale being restrained by injunction. The facts are thus reported: “On Nov.9, 1870, Mr. Saul recovered a judgment against the debtor, Philip NEWBERY
