"Another Firm of Solicitors of Forty Years' Stmding" write to the Times:—"The gentlemen who addressed you on the 17th inst. must consider themselves highly favoured in having had to wail only ten days for the PaymasterGeneral's certificate of the state of a fund in court. Our last experience of this routine requirement was that wo were kept waiting for a similar thing (so short when supplied that an office-boy could have copied it out in three or lour miuutJs) over two months, and we only got it then through the personal request or remonstrance of the Vice-Chancellor. At the same time we lieird of another case, where there was a delay of close upon six months, though the money was urgently required, and very constant application, as in our case, was made, the answer given being that the too small staff in the olbce was greatly over-taxed, and that to further hasten this work would break down the office. Now, whou we consider that the Paymaster-General is, in point of fact, the snitor's banker and nothing more, what must be thought of a system which will not allow the suitor to knew the state of his balance nnder six or two months, or even ten days? Such information ought to be ready the day after it is asked for, just as our pass-book is the day after it is left to be entered up."

(Before H. J. Stonor, Esq., Jndge.)
Jan. 19.—Stoncr v. Barnttt.

This case had been remitted 6ome time ago to the Wandsworth County Court by the Common Pleas Division. The> plaintiff claimed £40 for goods fold snd delivered, and on the 3rd of December, 1878, he obtained a judgment for £22 with costs, both of the superior court and the county oourt, which were taxed at £23 Cs. 4d. Execution was shortly afterwords taken out against the defendant's goods, and met by a bill of sale. A judgment summons was then taken out against the defendant, and the judge committed him for ten days, suspending the warrant for one month. On leaving the oourt the defendant openly expressed bis determination never to pay the debt, and at the end of the month he was arrested and went to prison for ten days. Some time after another judgment summons having been taken out against him, the judge made a new order for payment of the debt and costs by monthly instalments of only X2, whereupon the defendant again declared that he never would pay anything. A third judgment summons was ultimately taken out for non-payment of the first instalment of J.2. It was then proved that the defendant had been engaged in building houses, and had money at command. The judge accordingly committed him for forty day*, and the defendant again declared he would never pay the debt.

Ambrose Uayncs, on behalf of the plaintiff, now applied with reference to the matter.

His Honour said that the question appeared to be whether the new order, wbioh rem rioted the rights of the) plaintiff, was to be regarded as a distinct order within tho meaning of the 5th section of the Debtors Aot, 1869, or whether it was to be regarded as substantially the same order as the original judgment in the action. If the first view were correct the defendant was liable to commitment and imprisonment, and such was hia opinion; but if tha second view were correct the case of Evans v. Wills (L. R. 1 C. P. D. 229) would apply. In consequence of the difference of opinion existing on this subject, the* registrar had, with his approval, deolined to issue the order nntil the opinion of the High Court of Justice bad been taken on the point. This could be done by the defendant applying for a prohibition against further proceedings or by the plaintiff applying for a rule to issue the order. The Act of Parliament in question was, in his opinion, very obscure and difficult of oonstrnotion.
