On the 9th inst., in the House of COl11iI10!!.l, Mr, Schwann asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he was prepared, in order to promote soundness of trade in the mercantile community, to reduce the charges now made in England and \Vales for the extraction of information relating to deeds of arrangement, bills of sale, and county court judgments, which now cost respectively 2s. 6d., ls., and 6d. for each single cise, to the rate charged in Scotland of ls. 6d. for each search, which enabled the applicant to extract as he might desire at a sitting, and which thereby reduced to a merely nominal sum the cost per case of obtaining this absolutely essential information to the trading community. The Chancellor of the Exchequer said: “ With regard to the county court fees, which are the only fees of those mentioned for which the Treasury is directly responsible, the whole amount received only just covers the necessary ofilca expenses, and I do not see my way to lower them. For the other fees the Lord Chancellor is primarily responsible, and it is to him that requests for their reduction should be addressed.

consideration, although with full knowledge, is, nevertheless, as acting under a s ies of imposition or undue influence. The
plaintiff has been deprived oglicis property by fraud. It is not pretended that he knew anything of the bargain between his wife and Conklin. She had no property of her own, and the contract was in effect to pay Conklin for procuring the marriage by means of money and property to be acquired as the fruits of the union. The unlawful agreement was not to pay Conklin with property belonging to Mrs. Place, but was to rocure the plaintiff's property for Conklin through the medium of a forlbidden bargain. By the terms of the conspiracy the husband was to be induced to part with ' rt
y under the mistaken belief that he was making provision for support and maintenance, when, in fact, he was unconsciously her funds to be paid for the purchase- price of himself as a by virtue of a secret and illegal agreement between her and the
intimate friend of the husband, through whose active agency the marriage
effected . ' '
