Later in the year the lands were mortgaged for £150 A BILL has been introduced into the House of Commons by gage for £700, which, with other title deeds, he deposited with Mr. Waugh having for its object the ultimate extinction of cusgage for £700, which, with other title deeds, he deposited with tomary tenures. It is understood that the measure has received his bankers to secure an account. When this mortgage for £700 the sanction of the Copyhold Commissioners, and it is believed was negotiated the original mortgage of 1850 was paid off; but that the Government are disposed to support it. We assume the old conditional surrender in favour of the mortgagee that the object is one with which everyone, who is not either the remained unaffected. Disputes arising as to priority, the bankers lord or the steward of a manor, must sympathize, and the only persuaded the heir of the original mortgagee to be admitted matter we propose to discuss is the mode in which the Bill seeks under the old surrender, and then to surrender to them; hoping to carry out this object. to tack their charge to the legal estate thus obtained.

We are pleased to learn that consideration to be paid for the enfranchisement. The penalty this is so, but must point out that under any circumstances it is for omitting to accompany the notice of enfranchisement with the very doubtful whether the worthy secretary would have had written offer is, that the party in default shall pay all costs incurred power to interfere.
