12. In case of any receiver failing to leave any account or affidavit, or to pass any account, or to make any payment or otherwise, the receiver or the parties, or any of them, may be required to attend before the judge to show cause why such account or affidavit has not been left, or euch account passed or such payment made, or any other proper proceeding taken ; and thereupon the judge may give such directions and make such orders as shall be proper, including directions for the discharge of any recǝiver and the appointment of another, and any orders as to costs.

13. In every case in which an application is made for the appointment of a receiver by way of equitable execution, the judge in determining whether it is just or convenient that such appointment should be made shall have regard to the amount of the debt and costs claimed by the applicant, to the amonnt which may probably be obtained by the receiver, and to the probable costs of his appointment, and may, if he shall so think fit, direct any inquiries on these or other matters before making the appointment.

LEGAL OBITUARY.

Mr. ALBERT HALL, solicitor, of Blackburn, died on the 6th inst. at his residence at Pleckgate, Blackburn, from pneumonia following a cold contracted about a week since. Mr. Hall, who was fifty-six years of age, had practised in the town for thirty years, being at one time well known in the courts, but latterly he had confined his attention to private work. He served his articles with Messrs. Wheeler, Dean, and Fletcher. He was admitted in Easter Term 1868.

Mr. EDWARD NUGENT BELLINGHAM, one of the oldest Swansea solicitors, and a member of the firm of Strick and Bellingham, died in a very sudden manner on Thursday morning, the 11th inst. Mr. Bellingham was at his office in Fisher-street on the previous day, and there had a serious attack, which prostrated him. He was at once removed to his home, where medical attendance proved quite ineffectual. The deceased gentleman was about sixty-four years of age, and was a native of Saffron Walden, Essex. He joined partnership with Mr. Edward Strick at Swansea in 1858, and was active in the promotion of their large business till his death. The deceased, who was admitted in Easter Term 1855,
