the great advantage of our ever-increasing community, to the protection of civil rights, to the encouragement of arts and commerce, and to the general prosperity of the realm. Of the slender share which I have _been able to contribute to such results it does not become me to speak; but I may be permitted to say that my exertions have been prompted by a sense oi duty; and I should be ungrateful if I did not ac now edge that my labours have been compensated by greater success than I dare to think I have deserved, but for which I am more thankful than I can adequately express. It is this retrospect which fills my thoughts and my heart at this moment and which causes me to cast a long and lingering look behind at scenes and pursuits in which I can no longer have a share. For more than eighteen years last past I have filled a j udiciul post, during rather more than sixteen years of which I have had the honour of occupying the chair in which I now sit. It has been my best good fortune and my greatest happiness that in all that time I have had the assistance of a most able, learned, and assiduous bar—composed of gentlemen whose talents and personal character have at all times commanded me admiration and respect, whose society has been at all times a source of unqualified pleasure to me, to whom I tender my deep and sincere thanks, and whose presence, alas, I must now forego. To the ofilcers of that branch of the administration which is called the chamber work I also feel under very deep obligations. The recent changes in the practice have cast upon them many various and important duties, all tending to correct abuses which had inevitably grown up. The delays which were 'ustly complained of exist no longer. Prolixities are discountenanced. lI‘he administration oi estates, especially the smaller ones, is accomplished with speed and certainty and at a much diminished expense; and a very extensive interlocutory business which occurs in the administrative part of the functions of the court is now readily disposed of in chambers, or, where a resort to the court is necessary, the cases which undergo previous investigation in chambers are presented to the court with cleamess and certainty. And as these results are to be attributed to the care, intelligence, and the knowledge of the chief clerks, I feel that I should be unjust to them, and ungrateful withal, if I forbore on this occasion to express my satisfaction at the admirable manner in which their duties are discharged. In conclusion, with hearty thanks to you all, I wish you all honour and success and pros erity, and, adopting the farewell phrase of one of my predecessors, fsay “ God be with

you all.” The judges then withdrew after shaking hands with the ViceChancellor.

GENERAL.

A_t a meeting of the newly-elected committee of the Liverpool Law Society, Mr. J . H. Kenion, of the firm of Tyrer, Kenion, Tyrer, 8: Simpson, was elected president, and Mr. A. Bright, of the firm of Bateson, Bright, & Wart, vice-president, for the ens uing year.

_The members of the Oxford Circuit have invited the Home Secretary, the Right Hon. Henry Matthews, Q.C., M. P., to a complimentary dinner in celebration of his recent appointment as Home Secretary, which will take place (by permission of the benchers) in the Inner Temple Hall on Wednesday, the 1st of December.

“Mr. Alderman H. F. Wilkins, solicitor," says the Smmlml, “has been unanimously elected Mayor of Chipping Norion for the ensuing year. He is eighty-two years of age, and retains all the vigour and freshness of youth. He was a member of the unreformed corporation, was mayor of the borough when the Queen ascended the throne, and has been a member of the town council for the past fifty years. To commemorate the election of Mr. Alderman Wilkins to the Mayoralty for the eighth time, and at his advanced age, the inhabitants subscribed a fund for the purchase of two oxen, which were roasted in the marketplace, the beef being given away to the poor.”

Mp 0- 151- Warmingtpn, Q.C., M-P., who is the present master of the Famers Company, presided at a livery dinner of the company, held on Tuesday last, at the Albion, Aldersgate-street. Among a arge number of guests there were several members of both branches of the profession, inc uding Mr. Maclean, Q,.C., M.1’., Mr. Seward Brice, LL.D., Mr.S. C. Macaskie, Mr. W. Holmes, Mr. Sidney Smith, Mr. W. J. D. Andrew, Mr. H. Montagu, Mr. J . H. Keys, Mr. W. H. Herbert, Mr. F. C. Bayard, Mr. R. Wall Well, and the clerk, Mr. Wynne E. Baxter. In proposing the toast of “ The Visitors," the master referred to the number of sohcitors present that evening, and stated that it was to him a very P168-Bing fact, and one worthy of remark, that he did not remember in the whole course of_ nis career ever hearing that ll solicitor had divulged the secrets oE_his client and shewn himself unworthy of the confidence Nposed in him. Doubtless many members of the profession present that evenmg had in their possession information which would prove disastrous to a large number of persons if disclosed. He considered that. to ii very large extent, the whole well-being of society depended "P011 tl1s_lionour and integrity of solicitors, and he felt sure that society was safe in reposing the large amount of confidence it did in the members of the legal profession.
