review his own decision or that of his predecessor in office, as to the liability of a person to be a contributory generally and not with a qualification, and although no new facts are brought forward.

THIS was a motion to reverse the decision of Master Richards that he would reconsider and review the finding of Master Kindersley in 1851, placing the name of Viscount Curzon on the list of contributories in respect only of any liability incurred on the particular day when he was present at and was elected a member of the managing committee. It was now sought to make the appellant generally liable, and the Master had held he was bound to review the former decision in accordance with Spottiswoode's case, 3 Eq. Rep. 681.

ful for the Master from time to time to reconsider and review any order or proceeding which may have been made by or may have taken place before him under the said Act, upon such terms and in such manner as he thinks fit."

THIS was an appeal from the decision of Mr. Commissioner Balguy, of the Birmingham District Court, refusing to adjudicate as bankrupt under the 12 & 13 Vict. c. 106, s. 69, William Palmer, a surgeon and apothecary, who had been taken into custody under a ca. sa. and subequently removed under a coroner's warrant on a charge of felony. The question was raised, on a previous hearing before the Lords Justices (reported ante, vol. 51, p. 350), and reserved for the consideration of the full Court, whether this Court had jurisdiction under s. 12, which enacts, that "the Court, in the exercise of its primary jurisdic- Glasse and De Gex in support; Roxburgh tion by virtue of this Act, shall have superin- for the official manager; Greene for contributendence and control in all matters of bank-tories, contrà, referred to the 12 & 13 Vict. c. ruptcy, and shall hear, determine, and make 108, s. 17, which enacts, that "it shall be laworder in any matter of bankruptcy whatever, so far as the assignees are concerned, relating to the disposition of the estate and effects of the bankrupt, or of any estate or effects taken under the bankruptcy and claimed by the assignees for the benefit of the creditors, or re- The Vice-Chancellor said, that, irrespective lating to any acts done or sought to be done of the Winding-up Acts, the Master had power by the assignees in their character of assignees under Order 68 of April 3, 1828,' upon speby virtue or under colour of the bankruptcy,cial grounds, to review his own decision or and also in any matter of bankruptcy whatever the prior one of another Master in the same as between the assignees and any creditor or other person appearing and submitting to the jurisdiction of the Court; and also in any application for a certificate of conformity, and in any other matter (whether in bankruptcy or not) where the Court by virtue of this Act has jurisdiction over the subject of the petition or application, save and except as may be by this Act otherwise specially provided, and subject in all cases to an appeal to such one of the Vice-Chancellors of the High Court of Chancery as the Lord Chancellor shall from time to time be pleased to appoint to sit in bankruptcy." De Gea for the bankrupt.

And in giving judgment (April 29) on the remaining points of trading and act of bankruptcy, said that the Court of Appeal had full jurisdictiou to declare whether in their opinion, upon the evidence, the Commissioner could have made an adjudication, and to remit the matter to him with a declaration if the evidence was thought sufficient.

Nor was it necessary for that purpose that any new facts should be brought forward, or to show that a different view had been taken of the existing law, but he was justified under the order in deciding that he would reconsider a former decision if he thought the matter had not on the former occasion been properly presented. The motion would therefore be refused, without costs,—the costs of the official manager to come out of the estate.

Blundell v. Blundell. April 28, 1856. WILL.CONSTRUCTION. - APPOINTMENT UNDER POWER.-VOID CONDITION.

A testator having a power to appoint by will among all his children at such ages, not being after 21 years from his death, by his will appointed under the power among all his children except two, who had become nuns, and he declared that any child for the time being entitled to any share of the trust funds becoming a nun, should not be entitled to any part thereof. All the children had attained 21 at the testator's death, but one, afterwards contemplated becoming a nun: Held, that the condition was void as to her, and that she was entitled to her share.

THE testator, having power under his marriage settlement to appoint certain moneys among all his children, at such ages not being after 21 years from the time of his decease, as he should appoint, by his will appointed in pursuance thereof the funds amongst all his children except Catherine and Clementina, who had become nuns, and he declared that no child or children for the time being entitled under any of the trusts contained in his will who should embrace a religious life by joining any religious community, should be entitled to any part of the trust fund. It appeared that there were six children surviving at the testator's death (including the two who were excluded from the trust), all of whom had attained the age of 21, and that Anna Maria, one of them, had received her share from the trustees, and the question now arose, upon her intending to become a nun, whether such share was repayable to the trustees.

F. Riddell, H. M. Riddell, and Turner, for the several parties.

The Vice-Chancellor said, that as she had attained 21 she had an absolute vested interest in the sum payable under the execution of the power, and that the condition was therefore inoperative against her.

Powles v. Hyder. April 17, 25, 1856. MASTER AND SERVANT.-CAB PROPRIETOR'S LIABILITY FOR LOSS OF PASSENGER'S GOODS BY DRIVER'S NEGLIGENCE. Held, discharging a rule to set aside verdict for a plaintiff, and enter it for the defendant, that a cab proprietor is liable to a passenger for the loss of his goods through the negligence of the driver, whatever may be the arrangement as to the mode in which such driver is remunerated.

THIS was a rule nisi to set aside the verdict for the plaintiff and enter it for the defendant, in this action which was brought to recover from a cab proprietor the value of certain goods lost by the plaintiff whilst riding in his cab, through the negligence of the driver. It appeared on the trial before Lord Campbell, C. B., that the defendant received 14s. 6d. per day from the driver for the use of the cab and two horses, which he fed, but that the driver kept all the money he earned beyond that sum. Hugh Hill showed cause; Bovill and Holland in support.

Cur. ad. vult.

The Court said, the question was, whether the driver could be considered, under the circumstances, as the defendant's servant, so as to render him liable for the driver's negligence. If the driver had been paid by wages, there

could have been no doubt on the subject, and the mode in which he was here remunerated made no difference. They must be considered as employer and employed, as master and servant. The 1 & 2 Wm. 4, c. 22, s. 20, and the 6 & 7 Vict. c. 86, showed the driver was the servant of the proprietor, and it would be most injurious to the public if the proprietor could, by a secret agreement as to the mode in which his driver was to be remunerated and his earnings to be divided, defeat an action brought against him for his servant's negligence. The rule would therefore be discharged.

Benson v. Paull. April 26, 1856. COMMON LAW PROCEDURE ACT, 1854.MANDAMUS.-SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE OF

CONTRACT.

Held, that a mandamus will not be granted under the 17 & 18 Vict. c. 125, s. 68, for the specific performance of a contract entered into by the defendant to accept a lease and sign a counterpart.

County Court at St. Helen's, that in order to entitle a plaintiff to recover on a policy of insurance on his testatrix's life, he should show that the agent, who received the premiums thereon, notwithstanding the time had expired under the rules, and the policy had become forfeited, had authority so to receive the same and waive the forfeiture. THIS was a plaint in the Lancashire County Court held at St. Helen's by the administrator of one Ann Ward, to recover a sum of 50%. on a policy of insurance effected on her life in the defendants' company. It appeared that the policy was admitted to have been forfeited by reason of the non-payment of the premium within the period of four weeks thereby limited, but it was contended that the forfeiture was waived by the defendant's agent having accepted payment of the premium after such default. The plaintiff having obtained a verdict this appeal was presented,

Lush in support; Bovill, contrà.

The Court said, that the section of the Act did not extend to any matter where the duty to be enforced arose out of a mere obligation to perform a personal contract. If it did, it would equally apply to every case where there there was a duty following from any matter in which a party might be personally interested. It never could have been the intention of the Legislature to confer on the Courts of Common Law a power which could not be satisfactorily exercised so as to insure equity being done between the parties. It seemed that the section only intended to extend the power of granting a mandamus, which was previously vested in this Court alone, to the other Superior Courts. And the defendant was therefore entitled to judgment.

INDICTMENT FOR UTTERING FORGED IN-

IN BANKRUPTCY.

Held, that the examination of a bankrupt under the 12 & 13 Vict. c. 106, wherein he stated he had obtained his brother to write a letter in his father's name containing a false statement as to the prisoner's capital, whereby he had procured additional credit, is admissible in evidence on an indictment charging the prisoner with forging the same knowing it to have been forged, &.c.

THIS was an indictment charging this prisoner with uttering a forged instrument knowing it to have been forged for the purpose of before Channell, S. L., an examination of the fraudulently obtaining goods, and on the trial prisoner before the Commissioner in Bankruptcy, under the 12 & 13 Vict. c. 106, was put in, in which he stated he had got his brother to write the letter in question in his father's name, containing a false statement as to the prisoner's capital, and on which he had obtained additional credit. The prisoner was found guilty, and sentenced, subject to the opinion of this Court.

Collier for the prisoner; Coleridge for the prosecution.

The Court said, that as the prisoner might have refused to answer the questions which did not affect his trade, dealings, or effects, the examination was properly received, and the conviction would be affirmed.
