Judge ROGERS remarks that it would be difficult to point out anything in the conduct of a suit to judgment which he may not do. The limitations imposed on him relate generally to compromises which substitute one thing for another, as real estate for money, or to transactions after judgment. But it is decided that an attorney may not bind his client by an agreement by which land is taken instead of money-much less can he bind his client by an agreement for the sale of land; it requires a special delegation of authority in writing to enable him to do this.

This journal having been served with legal process at the suit of Dr. KENEALY, in respect of an article which appeared in our columns on the 7th March last, we might well desire to avoid reference to him in connection with the late trial, but the proceedings of the Oxford Circuit mess cannot be passed by without comment. Before we were aware of Dr. KENEALY's hostile intentions towards ourselves, we expressed the opinion that the Profession should leave the settlement of all questions raised to the decision of the benchers of Gray's-inn. We still think this was the proper course, and undoubtedly the action of the circuit mess would appear to depart from it. Those, however, who have condemned the resolution of the circuit Bar as premature and unfair, can hardly have put to themselves the question--was there any alternative? What the members of a circuit under such circumstances have to decide is, whether they wish to continue to dine and to associate in all the familiarity of social intercourse with a particular individual. The cause of objection to this individual may vary in its nature. If it is in any way doubtful or obscure there should be an investigation; if palpable and beyond controversy, an investigation is idle, and gentlemen constituting what is in effect a club can at once determine tbat they will no longer tolerate the company of an objectionable member and expel him. The large majority of the Oxford Circuit Mess viewed Dr. KENEALY'S case as in the latter category, and if we were to investigate the grounds of the conclusion we should find probably that they were mainly composed of what the learned gentleman himself calls generals."

We make these observations in order to explain what might not unnaturally be regarded as the tyranny of a Bar mess. Exclusion from that mess has nothing more than a moral effect upon the excluded member, and at least one very successful Queen's Counsel at present travels circuit with great profit to himself although he has for years ceased to be a member of the mess. Had Dr. KENEALY been a less prominent personage nothing would have been heard of his exclusion, which is a purely personal matter between himself and his professional brethren. much to be regretted that the operation of rules to which every man submits who enters the Profession and joins a circuit should be publicly canvassed in individual cases. Rules will exist in every society, and whether a man is universally "cut” or excluded from social intercourse by resolution is really of small consequence.

NOTICE. The present Editor of the Law Times is desired to state that the

learned gentleman who was for many years the editor of this journal entirely ceased to control its management on accepting judicial office. He then retired from the editorship, and has since been and is in no way cognisant of the contributions which are made to these columns.

We recently adverted to the extreme difficulty of any new licensing legislation arising from the existing complexities, and the numerous amendments called for by contending parties. We observe that last week two deputations on the same day presented themselves at the Home Office, one from the Grocers' Association, the other from the Church of England Temperance Society. The first tendered a set of proposed alterations, arranged in eleven paragraphs, some with and some without arguments to defend them. The second deputation, amongst whom were Lord SHAFTESBURY and Mr. RUSSELL GURNEY, presented statistics of undeniable interest. Circulars had been sent round to the superintendents of police and parochial clergy throughout the country. 118 chief police constables and 746 clergymen were in favour of the Act; 115 clergymen had suggested amendments for Sunday closing, and so on. So far so good. It is useful to know the opinions of chief constables and clergymen; they are in a manner semi-official, and we should imagine that the Home Office, before attempting fresh legislation upon a large scale, will come forward with something of the sort in the shape of a “parliamentary paper.” But we read on with dismay, as we find an attack upon the facilities given to grocers. “The society,” it is said, “ felt that these grocers' shops ought not to be turned into licensed houses for drinking spiritnous liquors.” This is incorrect in point of law, for the grocers' licence extends to a sale for drinking off the premises only : (See 23 Vict. c. 27, ss. 1, 3; 24 & 25 Vict. c. 21, s. 2; Licensing Act 1872, ss. 68,74). The demands of the society, taken together with the demands of the publicans for increased restrictions upon grocers, seem to threaten an unnatural combination, whether intended at present or pot we cannot say, between the publicans and the teetotallers against the grocers, and we imagine that the interest of the public, ever too little considered in licensing squabbles, lies with the grocers. It may be useful to recall a little bit of history in illustration of our meaning. Many years ago spirits might not be sold

The Law and the Lawyers.

In the Court of Common Pleas in Philadelphia a case has arisen involving the question of an attorney's power to bind his client by an agreement for the sale of land. It seems that the authority of an attorney-at-law in Pennsylvania is more extensive than in most countries, on the ground that he acts

in some degree as the agent as well as the lawyer of the client. This enlargement of power is

The extreme inconvenience The question of principal and agent was involved, and the stateof this gave rise to a Bill enabling wholesale spirit dealers to sell ment in the particulars of sale that the property brought in a spirits by retail. The publicans of that day put forward their certain annual rental, whereas it produced, in fact, considerably strength, and the result was that the extension in favour of sale less, had great influence upon the decision. But there are stateby retail was limited to liqueurs, by an Act called the Maraschino ments in the judgment of Lord Justice JAMES which go much Act (11 & 12 Vict. c. 121, see s. 9), and it was not till thirteen further; so that, whereas under the older decision the usual rule years afterwards that spirit dealers were enabled to sell spirits by was that notice of possession was notice of the terms under which retail (see 24 & 25 Vict. c. 21, s. 2). As for the present claims of the possession was held, the law may now be taken as settled, if the grocers, we leave them to the "serious consideration” of Mr. the decision of the LORDS JUSTICES is maintained, that a purchaser Cross, who is at present engaged in the pleasant task of seeking may safely assume the tenancy of an occupant to be from year how he

In the Orton trial Having examined these authorities the Chief Justice proceeds to the Lord Chief Justice told the jury that the great object of trial consider what amount of preconceived opinion will render a juror by jury was to obtain unanimity, and that each juryman was incompetent. “Wherever,” he says, “the opinion of the juror bound

In such a case the bias must be too strong to be easily and his observations on the duties of jurymen were necessary and shaken off, and the prisoner ought not to be subjected to the pertinent to the subject matter to be disposed of; but they do chance of conviction it necessarily begets."

Hentz, which came up on appeal on the wholly abortive. 11th March, from the MASTER of the Rolls, before the LORDS We are happy to see that Mr. Joseph Brown, Q.C., one of our JUSTICES, seems to establish a new principle in relation to the most energetic and enlightened law reformers, has considered the rights of that well protected person, the bona fide purchaser question of amending our jury system from the standpoint of the without notice. A brewer sent his agent to bid for property, Orton imposture. He takes objection to the number twelve. “If described as in the possession of certain tenants, and producing the jury are really to form any opinion of their own," he says, £30 a year.

At the sale, however, it appears that these tenants “and not to throw all the business of deliberation on the Judge, were under-tenants of a lessee of the vendor, who held the whole twelve are too many to do it properly." How is it possible, he property for a lease, of which nine years were unexpired, at a rent asks, for twelve men sitting in two rows in a couple of pews, and of £20. The lease was read at the sale, but it was not referred quite new to their work, to consult each other fully or freely as to to in the abstract sent to the purchaser.
