THE Supreme Court of the United States, in a most elaborate judgment, reviewing all the authorities, has decided that a common carrier cannot lawfully stipulate for exemption from responsibility when such exemption is not just and reasonable in the eye of the law; further, that it is not just and reasonable in the eye of the law for a common carrier to stipulate for exemption from responsibility for the negligence of himself or his servants; and that these rules apply both to common carriers of goods and common carriers of passengers, and with special force to the latter.

A REMARK which we have met with in the “Memoir of Lord DENMAN," just published, recalls attention to the patronage still remaining in the hands of the Judges to be conferred upon the Bar. Every year the Judges who go circuit are besieged by applicants for revising barristerships, and in very rare instances is the appointment given to the most deserving aspirant. In a letter to COLERIDGE from the Midland Circuit in 1847 Lord DENMAN wrote: "I cannot help fancying that the Bar is becoming more a stage of transition than a status-an apprenticeship exacted by custom for obtaining some office, such as that of revising barrister, County Court Judge, or commissioner of some sort. I heartily wish the Judges were deprived of all patronage of this kind. Towards the end of the assizes the looks of expectation and disappointment are harrowing.”. The exercise of such patronage is a source of annoyance to the Bench and humiliation to the Bar.

A DEFECT, if such it is to be called, in the Ballot Act has been pointed out in a case which came before the Manchester County Court on the 8th and 13th inst. By the 42nd rule of the first schedule, the marked register is to be open to inspection. All the documents used at the municipal election are sent to the town clerk; and by the 29th rule of the same schedule the presiding officer is directed at the close of the poll to make up

in à separate packet, sealed with his own seal and the seal of the candidates or their agents, the marked copies of the register of the voters and the counterfoils of the ballot papers. Consequently by this Act inspection is given of what by the Act is ordered to be sealed up. The difficulty was got over by application to the County Court Judge, who first heard the application in his private room and granted a rule nisi for inspection of the register, which by consent of the Town Clerk, was subsequently made absolute. A report of the case will appear under “ Election Law” in due course.

A DECISION of the Chief Judge in Bankruptcy upon the effect of a settlement which purported to convey to trustees for the benefit of the intended wife, not alone all the settlor then possessed, but all he might acquire during coverture (Ex parte Bolland; re Clint, 29 L. T. Rep. N. S. 543), well deserves consideration. It appeared that the recitals of the deed described the property intended to be conveyed, namely, all and singular the real and personal estate which the settlor should at any time during coverture possess, and the covenants in the deed included even more words to carry out the same intention. There were trusts declared of the property he absolutely possessed at the time, but none of those comprised in the recital or the covenant. The settlor became bankrupt, and his trustee claimed the after-acquired property as part of his assots. The Chief Judge very properly, as we conceive, pronounced against the settlement, and held, first, that as there were no trusts expressed with reference to future property, it must be taken that the husband intended that such property should first be applied to his own use. Secondly, that such a settlement was clearly void as against creditors. He said, “If deeds of this description were to be acted upon it would be impossible for anyone to carry on business. Nothing was more opposed to justice and the policy of the law than that a man should be at liberty to execute such a deed whereby his property, even to his boots, became subject to the trusts of the settlement. Creditors had a right to make the debtor's property applicable to the payment of their demands, and the trustee in the bankruptcy was entitled to the shares”—which had been bought during coverture.

The Law and the Lawyers.

The office of Associate on the Northern Circuit is one of some importance, as also is that of Prothonotary for the County of Lan. caster. Both these offices have for twenty-seven years been filled by Mr. EDMUND ROBERT HARRIS. That gentleman has now retired owing to ill-health, to the general regret of the Profession. We understand that Mr. THOMAS SHUTTLEWORTH, solicitor, son of tbe clerk of arraigns, has been appointed Mr. Harris's successor as Judges' Associate, but that, owing to the increase of business on the Northern Circuit, the duties of prothonotary will be divided, Mr. SAUTTLEWORTH being Prothonotary for Lancaster, Mr. WORTHINGTON for Manchester, and Mr. T. E. Paget for Liverpool. Mr. SHUTTLEWORTH's appointment as Judges' Associate has, we believe, given great satisfaction to the Bar.

VOL. LVI.-No. 1603,

An application of some practical importance was made to ViceChancellor Malins on the 13th inst., resulting, it is believed, in a departure for the first time from the ordinary practice of the Court of Chancery of appointing a special examiner to take the evidence of witnesses resident abroad. The witnesses proposed to be examined reside in France, and were admittedly unwilling witnesses. They would not voluntarily attend before any examiner or tribunal, and the order sought was to be directed to the President and Judges of the Tribunal Civil de Première Instance of the Department of the Seine sitting at Paris, requesting them to accept a commission from the Court of Chancery to delegate one or more Judges of the Tribunal who should be charged to proceed to an inquiry in the form of French civil procedure, and to summon the witnesses resident in their jurisdiction to be examined upon certain allegations contained in the summons. The objection urged to the adoption of the course was that the French tribunal would not take the evidence by examination and cross-examination in our manner, nor permit counsel to conduct the examination, but would, according to its usual practice, examine the witnesses itself. The opinion of an eminent avoué was read to the effect that the French court in such a case would adopt the English procedure. The Vice-Chancellor thought that our Court of Chancery always had the power of directing commissions to issue for the examination of witnesses abroad, which was given to the Courts of Common Law by 1 Will. 4, c. 22. In pursuance of that power the Common Law Courts had issued commissions to Judges of foreign courts ex. gr. Lumley v. Gye (23 L. J. 112, Q. B.), and sitting in the Court of Chancery he considered that he had power to issue such a commission which he thought the best possible course to be adopted under the circumstances. Whilst not doubting the existence of the power thus exercised by the Vice-Chancellor we consider the necessity for its exercise an argument in favour of the assimilation of the laws, and if possible of the procedure, of the great trading countries.

satisfied, from what had occurred, that the assets would not pay 11s. in the pound, unanimously agreed to accept less; and, if they could not do so, the Act of Parliament had passed in vain. We quite agree with the learned Judge in his conclusion, “that great mischief and injustice would be done to the other creditors if the Court suffered the appellant, by reason of the accident, to continue the action, for the company was as much bound by the terms of the second resolution as it was by the terms of the first, to which it was a party.” The appeal was consequently dismissed.


The County Court Judge of Dorsetshire, sitting at Bridport, has decided that a husband who gives his wife, privately, instructions not to run into debt with the baker, is not liable for bread supplied to his household on credit. His Honour said that this principle had been established by a case in the Court of Common Pleas. This is to us a novel and startling doctrine. A wife is primâ facie the agent of the husband in procuring household necessaries suited to his position in life. The defendant in the case before the County Court Judge was in receipt of 14s. weekly wages, the whole of which, he said, he gave to his wife, and told her to pay for what was required. She failed to pay the baker, who had no notice of the instructions to the wife. It was positively held that he could not recover against the husband. The most recent case decided in the Common Pleas is Phillipson v. Hayter (23 L. T. Rep. N. S. 556), where Lord Chief Justice Bovill said, “ The domestic arrangements of the family being usually left to the control of the wife, her authority extends to all those matters which fall within her department, as, for instance, the supply of provisions for the house, clothing for herself and children, and things of that sort. Even that limited authority must, however, be subject to this condition, that the goods be suitable to the position which the husband allows his wife to assume.” In the old case of Etherington v. Parrott (Salk. 118) a warning was given to the plaintiff's servant, by the husband, not to trust the wife any more. That was held to rebut the presumption of the wife's power to pledge her husband's credit. That a private prohibition to the wife should have the same effect would be an extraordinary extension of the law.

We have recently discussed in these columns the right of a creditor of a bankrupt who has agreed to accept a composition, to sue for his original debt when there is a failure to pay the composition. On the 15th inst. the CHIEF JUDGE had before him this question in a somewhat peculiar form (Ex parte The Radcliffe Investment Company, re Glover). A composition having been accepted by creditors, payable by three instalments, on a basis which excluded a large creditor, this creditor was subsequently admitted to prove, and the debts upon which the composition was payable thereby becoming so much larger the debtors were unable to pay, and almost all the creditors agreed to accept a smaller sum in the pound as the third instalment, the creditor last admitted agreeing to reduce his debt. The appellant, however, refused to be bound by the resolution, and brought his action. The Deputy-Judge of the Manchester County Court restrained the action, and from that decision the creditor appealed. Lord Justice JAMES, in Hatton's case (27 L. T. Rep. N. S. 396; L. Rep. 7 Ch. 723) said: “There may be cases in which, by accident and not by default of the debtor, the composition is not duly paid, and then no doubt the court would relieve the debtor from the effect of any accident and remove any injustice” And the CHIEF JUDGE pointed out that the possibility of such an accident was contemplated by the Act, and creditors were, by the 126th section, 6th paragraph, entitled to “add to or vary the provisions of any composition previously accepted by them without prejudice to any persons taking interests under such provisions who do not assent to such addition or variation." His Lordship proceeded to remark that it was upon that clause that the case of the appellant rested, and in construing it he had to consider what was the general policy of the law, and not to attach a too literal construction to words which were apparently opposed to such policy. The word "persons” might no doubt, be said, include " creditors,” but they would be bound by the first resolution; and creditors being the persons to be bound, it would be wrong to read the word as meaning "creditors," unless it was impossible to ascribe any other meaning to it. By the terms of the 7th clause the provisions of a composition accepted by an extraordinary resolution were binding on all the creditors whose names appeared in the statement of the debtor produced to the meetings at which the resolution was passed, but did not affect or prejudice the rights of any other creditors. The meaning of the clause was perfectly obvious. The creditors in this case being

In our issue of the 6th inst., we made what we considered to be some very fair remarks upon an article appearing in the Irish Law Times, concerning the relations existing between the Judges of the common law side of the Four Courts. We ventured to describe our contemporary's article as “a lively Irish sketch," and we questioned whether it was true to life. We doubted whether the Irish Judges would act as we thought our contemporary suggested, and our construction of what he did say is disputed. In our own justification, and for the benefit of the Irish Judges, we give our comments and our critic's reply in parallel columns : Law Times.
