FORMERLY THERE WERE CERTAIN PLACES in the neighbourhood of Lincoln's-inn where late in the afternoon a small crowd of solicitors' and barristers' clerks might be seen collected round the notice-boards containing the cause-lists of the several courts for the following day! But since last April these lists have only been placed on the doors of the several courts. It will be convenient to the profession to know that in future the commonlaw cause papers will be posted up in the porch under the tower at the south front of the Royal Courts of Justice; and that the Chancery cause papers will be found in the corridor at the Carey-street entrance of the building (which remains open till six p.m.), and also outside the cause-book room on the court floor.

A QUAINT PIECE of criminal law was disinterred at the recent Maidstone Assizes. A mon and his wife, after drinking heavily for eight days, threw themselves into a river, no doubt intending, so far they were capable of forming an intention, to commit suicide together. The husband was drowned, but the wife escaped, and she was thereupon charged with the murder of her husband. In the beginning of the seventeenth century the judges were perplexed with a similar case (Anon., Moore, 754). A man and his wife “ ayant long temps vive incontinent,'' were in great distress. The husband said to the wife, “I am weary of life and will destroy myself," upon which the wife replied, “ If you do, I will too,” and thereupon the husband mixed poison with some drink, of which both partook. The husband died, but the wife recovered. According to Moore, the question whether the wife was guilty of murder was considered, but he does not give the decision. Mr. Justice Pattison, however (8 C. & P. 418), evidently re. ferring to this case, says that the wife was acquitted on the grourd that she was under the control of her husband. In 1823, in a case (R. v. Dyson, R. & R.523), where the wife was drowned and the husband escaped, it was held by nine judges that, “ if the deceased threw herself into the water by the arrangement of the prisoner, and because she thought he had set her the example, in pursuance of the previous agreement, he was a principal in the second degree, and was guilty of murder ; " and in a subsequent case of R. v. Alison, (8 C. & P. 418), Mr. Justice Pattison told the jury that “supposing the parties mutually agreed to commit suicide, and one only accomplished that object, the survivor would be guilty of murder in point of law." Following these authorities in the recent case, the Lord Chief Justice, in summing up, told the jury that they must take the law to be that if two persons agreed together to commit self-murder and one of them survived, the survivor was guilty of murder. Happily, however, it was not necessary to put this doctrine into practical application, as the jury seem to thought that the parties were not in a condition to form a definite intention to commit suicide, and consequently found the woman not guilty.
