above Act of 9 & 10 Vict. c. 95, it is directed, that "when any claim shall be made to or in respect of any goods or chattels taken in execution under the process of any court holden under the authority of the said Act, or in respect of the proceeds or value thereof, by any landlord for rent, or by any person not being the party against whom such process has issued, and summonses have been issued on the application of the officer charged with the execution of such process, such summonses shall be served in such time and manner as herein before directed for a summons to appear to a plaint, and the claimant shall be deemed to be the plaintiff and the execution creditor the defendant, and the claimant shall, five days before the day on which the summonses are returnable, deliver to the said officer, or leave at the office of the clerk of the court, a particular of any goods or chattels alleged to be the property of the claimant, and the grounds of his claim, or in case of a claim for rent, of the amount thereof and for what period the same is claimed to be due;" and by rule 79, cases of interpleader may, at the instance of either party, be tried by a jury.

By rule 131, interpleader summonses may be issued by the registrar, on the application of the bailiff, without the leave of the court. By rule

132 they shall be issued from the court of the district in which the levy was made, and the execution-creditor and claimant may be summoned to such court. And by rule 130 they shall be served in such time and mode as is herein before directed for a summons to appear to a plaint, and the case shall proceed as if the claimant were the plaintiff, and the executioncreditor were the defendant.

By the stat. 19 & 20 Vict. c. 108, s. 72, the claimant may deposit with the bailiff either the amount of the value of the goods claimed, such value to be fixed by appraisement in case of dispute, to be by such bailiff paid into court to abide the decision of the judge upon such claim; or the sum which the bailiff shall be allowed to charge as costs for keeping possession of such goods until such decision can be obtained; and in default of the claimant so doing, the bailiff shall Bell such goods as if no such claim had been made, and shall pay into court the proceeds of such sale, to abide the decision of the judge.

Five clear days before the day on which the summonses are returnable, the claimant is to deliver to the bailiff, or leave at the office of the registrar of the court, a particular of any goods cr chattels alleged to be the property of the claimant, and the grounds of his claim; or in case of a claim for rent, of the amount thereof, and for what period, and in respect of what premises the same is claimed to be due; and the name, address and description of the claimant shall be fully set forth in such particular; and any money paid into court under the execution shall be retained by the registrar until the claim shall have been adjudicated upon. Provided that, by consent, an interpleader claim may be tried, although the above rule has not been complied with: (rule 130.)

The Act imposing new stamp duties came into operation on Thursday morning, but, owing to official mismanagement, the London merchants and bankers were unable to obtain copies of it until late in the afternoon. An extraordinary amount of inconvenience was, therefore, inflicted. Henceforth not only all cheques drawn upon bankers must be stamped, but also every letter to a bauker directing payments to be made or money to be forwarded must have affixed to it an adhesive penny stamp (not a postage writer with his name or initials and the date on which stamp), which stamp must be cancelled by the the stamp is used. A penalty of 201. is attached to the non-observance of these directions.


NOTE.-This department of the LAW TIMES is contributed by EDWARD WALFORD, Esq., M.A., and late scholar of Balliol College, Oxford, and Fellow of the Genealogical and Historical Society of Great Britain, and as it is desired to make it as perfect a record as possible, the families and friends of deceased members of the Profession will oblige by forwarding to the LAW TIMES Office any dates and materials required for a biographical notice.


The late Thomas Robinson, Esq., formerly Mayor of Bury St. Edmunds, who died at his residence, Westgate-street, in that town, on the 16th of February last, at the advanced age of ninety years, was a gentleman widely and extensively known throughout the county of Suffolk. While his health and strength was good, he was most active in the discharge of his duties, as a magistrate for the county, and for the borough of Bury St. Edmunds, of which town he served the office of mayor in 1840-41. During the last few years illness had forced him to retire from public life; and we learn from a contemporary that he was the last survivor of the gentlemen named just half a century ago as commissioners for the improvement of the town of Bury St Edmunds, in the execution of which he always took the liveliest interest, as indeed he did in all matters of local or social advancement.

JOSEPH CHARLES SHEBBEARE, ESQ. Died at Basingstoke, aged seventy-one, on March 30, Joseph Charles Shebbeare, Esq., attorney-at-law. Mr. Shebbeare was the member of a worthy and respectable family, and was born in 1788 or 1789. The deceased gentleman filled the office of coroner for Hants for upwards of forty years, and for the greater part of that time the town of Basingstoke had the eminent advantage of his services as town clerk,


clerk to the justices, and in other capacities. "As a public man," says the Reading Mercury, "he discharged his duties with fearless independence, zeal, and integrity, which secured the high respect and esteem of all who were in any way associated with him. His whole professional career was marked by the same characteristics, and it is deeply felt in Basingstoke that the town has lost a good man and a valuable public servant. In private life, by his many excellent qualities, Mr. Shebbeare had endeared to himself a large circle of friends, who now deeply deplore his loss." The deceased gentleman was married and has left issue.


The late Harry Verelst Worship, Esq., formerly attorney-at-law, who died at Great Yarmouth, on the 21st of last December, at the age of eighty-six, was the son of Mr. Worship of that place, where his ancestors had been settled since the reign of James I. Mr. H. V. Worship was born at Great Yarmouth in August 1774, and was the godson of Henry Verelst, Esq., who immediately preceded Warren Hastings as GovernorGeneral of India, and after whom he was named. In early life he was admitted as a solicitor, and Practised for many years at Great Yarmouth with considerable success. He, however, ardently and enthusiastically devoted himself to literature and politics, and kept open house for the learned and well-educated men of the eastern counties. He was one of the mainstays of the Liberal party in Ipswich, and a generous supporter of the local charities of his native town and county. Nor was his pen idle: his attention had been drawn many years ago to the abuses and imperfections of our ancient municipalities arising from lapse of time and perversion of usage, and be entered warmly into the question of recasting them so as to bring them more into harmony with the spirit and requirements of the age. With this purpose in view, he published about a quarter of a century ago some able pamphlets on the subject of the Municipal Reform Act, which attracted considerable notice at the time from the leading newspapers and reviews.

In 1800 Mr. Worship married a Miss Dade, a member of an old Suffolk family, and connected with several ancient houses in the eastern counties, by eldest son Francis served the office of Mayor of Great whom he has left six children surviving. His Yarmouth in 1857, and is now a magistrate for the borough, and a deputy-lieutenant for the county of Norfolk. Mr. Worship also lived to see his third son, William Worship, Esq., elected mayor of his native town. The family of the Worships, indeed, have always taken a lively and practical interest in the local affairs of the town with which their name has been so long and so honourably connected, and they have always been conspicuous for their probity and high ability.


decease of a gentleman, distinguished not only as a It is with great regret that we record this day the lawyer and as a scholar, but also as one of the chief leaders of the great educational movement which has marked the middle of the nineteenth century-Mr.

Jelinger Charles Symons, barrister-at-law, and one of her Majesty's inspectors of schools, who died of rapid consumption, a few days since, at his residence

at Great Malvern, Worcestershire, at the age of little more than fifty.

The deceased gentleman was the eldest son of the late Rev. Jelinger Symons, rector of Radnage, &c., and a magistrate for Herefordshire, and was born in 1809. He was educated at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, where he graduated B.A. in 1831. He was called to the bar at the Middle Temple in 1843, and in 1847 was nominated one of her Majesty's inspectors of schools.

In this capacity no name was better known than that of Mr. Symons, as one who took an active part in the reformatory movement-and, indeed, in the promotion of every measure which was calculated to advance the progress of education.

How largely he contributed to the stores of general literature may be judged from the following list of his publications, which we have extracted from the catalogue of the British Museum :

A Scheme of Direct Taxation. 1853.
Railway Liabilities, as they affect Subscribers, Com-
mittees, Allottees and Scripholders inter se, and
Third Parties. 1846.

A Practical Plan for Furthering Education, by
Enlarging the General System of Government
Grants. 1856.

A Plea for Schools, setting forth the Dearth of Education and the Growth of Crime, and proving the Fallacy of Mr. Baines' Statistics, and showing, likewise, how the New Scheme respects Religious Liberty. 1847.

Parish Settlements and the Practice of Appeals, containing the Law and Evidence of each Class o Settlement, and the Grounds of Objection incidental to them, with the Law and New Statutes relating to Bastards. 1844. 2nd edit. 1846. Ought Electors to Elect? Ten Minutes' Talk on the Ballot. 4th edit. 1858.

On the Reformation of Youthful Offenders: a Collection of Papers, Pamphlets, and Speeches on Reformatories. 1855.

[blocks in formation]

An Industrial Training considered as an adjunct to
School Teaching. 1857.
On Crime and Density of Population: a
Paper read before, and published in the Trans-
actions of, the National Association for the
Promotion of Social Science. 1858.
Lectures in connection with the Educational Exhibi-
tion of the Society for the Encouragement of
Arts, Manufactures and Commerce. 1844.
Miscellaneous Papers on Industrial Schools. 1854.
Sir Robert Peel as a Type of Statesmanship. 1856.
School Economy: a Practical Book on the best Mode

of Establishing and Teaching Schools by means of Moral and Industrial Training. 1852. Tactics for the Times, as regards the Condition and

Treatment of the Dangerous Classes. 1849. From the above list it will be seen that Mr. Symons was something more than a mere dull lover of routine, but that he took the warmest interest in everything, whether great or small, which bore on the educational interests of the nineteenth century.

Besides being the author of the above works, Mr. Symons will be remembered by the learned as having carried on a learned controversy with Dr. Whewell on the subject of the Moon's motion about her own axis; and our legal readers will recognise in his name one of the authors of "Reports on Cases in the Law of Real Property," published by him in conjunction with Mr. R. G. Welford, 1846, &c. He was also a frequent contributor of light and pleasant papers to Once a Week.

Mr. Symons married, in 1845, Angelina, daughter of Edward Kendall, Esq., late of Davy-park, and formerly High Sheriff of Brecknockshire, by whom he has left a youthful family. His eldest son, Jelinger Edward, was born in 1847.

Mr. Symonds was at one time a candidate for a seat in Parliament at Stroud, but we are not sure whether he went to the poll. He represented a younger branch of the ancient family of Symons, of the Hatt, near Stratton, Cornwall, who claim descent from Simon de St. Sever, who (as we learn from the Book of County Families) came over with the Conqueror, and afterwards returned to Normandy. His son Adam Fitz-Simon (named in the Roll of Battle Abbey) received grants of land in Suffolk and Hertfordshire in the reign of Edward III.; and we learn from the same authority that one of the family, Sir Richard Fitz-Simon, was made sixteenth founder of the Order of the Garter.

by whom he leaves two sons and two daughters, and
is succeeded by the eldest son-the present Sir John
Forrest-who, as we learn from the County Families,
was born in 1817, and is unmarried.

"Sir James's chief characteristic," says a writer in
the Edinburgh Daily Courant, "was his thorough
honesty. If he was a party man, it was because he
was fully satisfied that his party held sound views.
He acted ever from the firmest conviction that truth
and right were on his side. As a debater, he was not
powerful, but he had a great facility in expressing
himself, both orally and in writing. But he owed
more to his straightforward manner than to his
eloquence. He was in the best sense of the word a
gentleman. In disposition he was kindly and hearty,
in bearing polite, in temper equable, and he was
naturally disposed to be easy, but when his mind was
made up on a subject of vital importance, he never
hesitated to act vigorously, without counting the
cost. By his death we have lost a good citizen and a
good man."

forward were anything but exceptional. The great bulk of charities were intended for wise and bene ficent purposes, and he was unwilling that any check should be placed on bequests of this nature, which would tend to lessen their number. Why should an arbitrary law be drawn at the end of fifty years, or any other period, beyond which the benevolent intentions of a testator could not be secured? With regard to Mr. Webster's proposal, that in no case ought a person to be allowed to give away his property in charity without providing for his wife and children: how would it be possible to determine what was a proper provision? As to defining the objects of usefulness which a testator was to be allowed to set up who is to do so? Society is continually advancing new plans for benefiting mankind are discovered and it would be impossible for any body of men however enlightened, to say beforehand that any scheme proposed by a testator would not operate beneficially when fairly tried. A few years age ragged schools would have been considered as chi merical and absurd; after being in operation, it has been found that they had done much good. He had ventured to express his dissent from some of the views brought forward on the subject of charitab trusts; but he considered the matter as one de serving the attention of the society, and he woul therefore move that a special committee be appointe to consider the law relating to charitable trusts, an to report thereon to the society.

Mr. H. G. Allen seconded the motion. There wer difficulties on all sides connected with the subject now under consideration; but the evils of the existin system were not so great as to justify any sweepic changes. The system of doles, which existed to great extent in this country, was no doubt bad, an he thought the Vice-Chancellor had proved the mis chief to which it gave rise, and the necessity of som remedy being applied. It appeared to him desiral that the objects of the testator should be reviewe after a time had shown their effects, and the char commissioners might be useful for this purpose.

At the meeting of this society, held Monday, Feb. 6, Lord Brougham in the chair, The adjourned discussion on Vice Chancellor Sir W. Page Wood's paper on Charitable Trusts was resumed. Mr. Couch could not agree with the views of M Mr. Chadwick said he considered that the first step Lawrance and Mr. Allen, that you should not inter to the regulation of endowments in future would be, fere with the charitable gifts or bequests until the to achieve an improved administration of the existing effects of the disposition were shown.

Mr. Arnold White said, that taking the analogy of entails, and the power of cutting them off, a large enabling power might be given to certain persons interested in the charity to modify its application. Who the persons should be to whom this power might be intrusted, would depend on the nature of the charity.

Mr. Jackson said, that the committee would have to consider the state of the law with regard to the restrictions on the devise of real property for charitable purposes, and to see whether the Mortmain Act, with the exceptions it contains, and those that have been subsequently made by other Acts, is wise and just. They would have to look to its operation during the period it had been in force, and then to consider whether similar restrictions are required in the case of personal property. The revision of Charitable Trusts was another question of great imHe thought that if, after a certain period, & charity was found to work badly, another scheme should be applied. It would be advantageous that there should be a fixed time, during which the original scheme should be allowed to go on. Although on an average the period during which settlements held was only twenty-five years, arising from a fresh settlement being made as soon as the eldest son attained the age of twenty-one; yet to select a certain number of lives, and then to have an additional twenty-one years, would give a period of nearly a hundred years.


The motion was then put and carried. The society then adjourned.

and PARISH LAW CASES. Part L, price 2s. 6d. To be continued at the close of each term, from the LAW TIMES REPORTS. Edited, with Notes, &c., by EDWARD W. COX, Recorder of Falmouth.

The great number of Appeals from Magistrates' Courts will, it is thought, make a collection of the cases decided on the Law administered by Magistrates, for separate binding and preservation, very adaptable to Magistrates, their Clerks, and Practitioners in the Courts. A part will be issued at the close of each term. The price will vary according to the quantity: but it will not exceed 15s. for the year. The parts, as published, will be sent to the subscribers by the post, free. Subscribers are requested to send their names to the office as soon as possible.

They objected to the very reasonable lien for his costs which the bill proposes to give to a solicitor upon moneys recovered for his client; although it may be that those costs were incurred in the recovery of that money.

Not merely is it the only collected series of reports published in England in the form of an octavo, so convenient for the court and the ibrary, but it is by far the most copious and complete series of reports ever attempted in this country, comprising more courts, and more cases from each court, than any other.

In accuracy, in fullness, and in such expedition 25 is consistent with accuracy, these reports may, we believe, challenge comparison.


The change of form was an experiment, which has, however, proved entirely successful. reports are not now those of a newspaper. They have an independent position and value as "a book" of permanent worth.

As soon as the promised change in the NewsPaper Stamp Act becomes law, we shall be enabled to perfect the plan by a more appropriate heading of the pages. As it is, the law compels us to place the name of the journal at the head of Tery printed page. Hence the impossibility of Ling what our readers have requested, and we ave desired. But a title-page has been given ar the first volume which will enable the subscriber to make his choice.

The future volumes will, of course, be considerably more bulky: for this one did not comence until November, so that it contains only neteen numbers, instead of twenty-six, which ill be the future complement.

Alterations are threatened to be made, or rather attempted, in committee; but we trust that the same support will be given there to the measure in its entirety as in the whole House.

manner that may be at once prudent, just and generous.

As yet, the most formidable opponents of the Reform Bill have been found among the Liberals. Mr. MASSEY, the Chairman of Committees, a member of Lord PALMERSTON's last Administration, has made the best speech yet delivered against it, and has given notice of a motion to refer it to a select committee, which is only a polite means of relieving the Government of its responsibilities. Mr. B. OSBORNE has declared his dissatisfaction. Mr. E. JAMES and half-a-dozen Radical members have asserted that it was based upon a wrong estimate of numbers, and that the figures which we at the first published as the true statistics are more correct than those put forward by Lord JOHN RUSSELL, although the difference is between 450,000, which we affirm to be the product of the proposed franchise, and 240,000, which is the total estimate by the author of the scheme. Turn to the press, and the same phenomenon is seen. Among the newspapers the leading Liberal organs the Times, the Economist, the Saturday Review and the Leader-have declared themselves emphatically averse to the Bill. strangely, two out of the three Liberal Quarterly Reviews-the Westminster and the National, both Radical in their tendencies-have just appeared with articles unequivocally condemning the measure, not because it does not go far enough, but because of its unmixed democratical tendencies. In private life, as everybody must be well aware, the Bill does not find a single approver among any party, and if a vote of the intelligent classes could be taken upon it, there would be an almost unanimous declaration that, in its present shape, it is fraught with danger, and an equally unanimous demand that the extension of the franchise may not be all downwards among the least instructed and the poorest, but that ample security should be taken for the preservation of the due influence and preponderance of intelligence and property.

Still more

In this state of things all reasonable men will probably unite in desiring that the measure may not be rejected altogether, but that it may be so modified in committee as to make it safe by some or all of the plans that have been suggested by its most thoughtful friends.

READERS will probably remember the name of election, and the ousting of Mr. OVEREND. Mr. of the solicitors of York. On that occasion, as LEEMAN is one of the most respectable and able services to his party. It is reported at the clubs on many others, he has rendered most valuable that this gentleman was recently proposed at the Reform Club, and black-balled. If it be true, a ingratitude of party. Whether the blow was more flagrant instance could not be found of the aimed from personal or political motives, it is equally ungenerous and undeserved; and certainly it will not in any manner diminish the respect in which the object of it has been so long held by the Profession to which he is an

These duties are to be assessed and levied under the provisions of the former Acts.

But the sums assessed for the last year are to be taken as the annual value for the present year, subject to increase, abatement, or discharge, as were the assessments of last year. Does this provision mean that there is not to be a new assessment unless desired by the party assessed? If not this, what is its meaning?

Where property has been divided since the last assessment, the proportions of the tax are to be settled by the commissioners.

Railways and persons employed on them are to be assessed by the special commissioners, and so also may be persons assessed for mines or quarries.

Deductions in respect to payments for life assurance are still to be allowed.
