way of effecting greater economy of time in our arrangements of circuit business. At Bristol the assize collapsed at the end of the third day, owing to two prisoners pleading guilty whose cases were expected to last three days, while at Chester the week was not enough, owing to cases occupying longer than had been expected. These are difficulties arising from the very nature of the case; but the explanation is due in order to satisfy those who think there has been a waste of tho public time in allowing so long as a week each for Bristol and Exeter. I find that the same kind of mistake has been made bers as at Bristol, for I have allowed a week, and we shall probably find half a week ample.

It is stated that the health of Sir James Hannen, the President of the Probate and Divorce Court, is improving, and it is expected that he will he able to resume his judicial duties much sooner than was expected.

Mr. Justice Lindley and Mr. Ford North, Q.C., were on Tuesday sworn in before the Lord Chancellor at his country residence, Blackmoor, Petersfield, Hants, the former as a Lord Justice of Appeal and the latter as a j udge qf the High Court of Justioe.

The City Press reports a case in the Lord Mayor's Court, before Mr Woodthorpe Brandon, assistant judge, in which a defendant objected to the case being proceeded with, on the ground that plaintiffs solicitor in the action for which the costs were incurred was not upon the rolls of the court. The costs could not therefore be recovered. His lordship: Where do you find that laid down? Defendant: In your lordship's own work.

Several of the best-known firms of Birmingham solicitors have, says the Globe, just been made the victims of an ingenious swindle. A man having every appearance of being a gentleman has called upon them, and asked for assistance in filing a liquidation petition, representing that he lived some distance off. His custom was to enter into the minutest details as to his affairs, and subsequently induce his victims to lend him several pounds, on the plea that he had been suddenly called upon to go home to meet his auctioneer, and that he bad run rather short of money. The swindler, having obtained a considerable sum in this way, has decamped, and is now supposed to be pursuing similar practices in other towns.

Mr. Justice Chitty, on taking his seat on Wednesday, stated, for the guidance of the bar and the public, that all actions with witnesses pending for trial and where briefs had been delivered to him had been transferred for trial only to Mr. Justice Kay. As to non-witness actions, he proposed to adopt the same course where he had read the briefs; but he should be happy to listen to any application made to him by the parties. In reference to any motions whloh had stood over from before nntil after the long vacation, and in whioh he had been engaged as counsel and had read the briefs, the actions ought also be transferred. Where he had not read the briefs, he thought those actions ought also to be transferred if either party desired it. Where he had been engaged ns counsel in a motion and the action was now set down for trial, he should be happy to accede to any similar application for transfer. Actions where judgment had been already delivered would remain in his court. As to the conduct of business, his lordship stated that he proposed to continue Friday as his motion day, and that he intended to devote next week to non-witness actions. He should adopt the rule of the Master of the Bolls as to Bitt'ng at ten, and rising so far as possible at three.
