able actuary and secretary for his great assiduity and attention to the business of the company. With Mr. MoOedy I will also inolode the staff, who certainly have done their duty admirably. I hope this resolution will be carried by acclamation.

Mr. Erasmus Wilson, F.R.S.—If I mt\y be permitted to second that resolution, I will say that there are dntii-s and duties ; and I feel quite convinced that the duties which devolve upi n our secretary and the staff are duties which they ptrfjrm wiihout hesitation, as a necessity of their nature, and that all their thoughts are directed towards the sncce.-s of the company with which they are associated. They do not wutk merely because work is a necessity of life, but because it is the only thing; calculated to prolong life, to give appetite and improve digestion, to make themselves happy, and also to confer benefit on the company in which they are interested. Under these circumstances, I am sure that all the shareholders present will throw up both hands in acclamation in supporting this motion.

The resolution having been very cordially adopted,

Mr. F. Mcgkdy said—Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen, on my own tehalf and on behalf of the staff, I return you my sincere thank* for this very cordial vote in recognition of our past conduct. If I may refer to what Mr. Wilson has ao kindly said in our favour, I would assure yon that our hearts are in the work, and that we do our best at all times to promote the interests of the company.

Mr. Pejiiskktos said he bad great pleasure in proposing a vote of thanks to their solicitor, Mr. Purges, to whose courtesy and judgment they were greatly indebted. There had never been a single instance since he had been their solicitor in which there had been any dissatisfaction with bis conduct, and both personally and professionally they were indebted to him for a great deal of the business which came to the office.

Mr. E. BuiiKiTT seconded the motion, which was at oas e agreed to.

Mr. Purges briefly acknowledged the compliment, assuri ng them that he should do all in his power to promote the interests ol the company.

Mr. Joseph Dodds, M.P.—There is another duty which we ought to discharge, and that is to psy a due meed of approbation to our excellent chairman. I beg to propose that our most hearty thanks be given to him for his valuable services to the company. We have seen him in this room and elsewhere conducting the business of the company in a manner that leaves nothing whatever to be desired. Entirely as I concur in the votes which have already been passed,and in theenlogiums which have been pronounced upon onr various officials, I am sure you will feel that without such an able head in guiding the society the success that has attended us up to the present time, and which seems to increase year by year, would not havebaen insured to ns.

Mr. Basil Field seconded the resolution, which was carried by acclamation.

The Chairman.—[ beg to tender you, gentlemen, my most sincere thanks for the very kind way in which you have passed this vote of thanks. I feel that you are far too kind, and that your expressions in appreciation of my services are mora eulogistic than they Bbould be. I can only say that I will endeavour, as far as I possibly can, by every means in my power, to promote the success of this company, which I have very much at heart, and nothing gives me greater pleasure than to see it progress year by year.

The meeting then dispersed.

Although, eaya the Timet reporter, only two or three weeks have elapsed since, at the end of February, when the Order in Council fusing the common law divisions took effect, the Judicature Act came for the first time fall; into operation, the effect of continnons sittings of courts for different kinds of business has already been shown in a very striking way. As to business in Bane, the Special Paper was speedily cleared, and the New Trial Paper much reduced; and only two oases remained in the Crown Paper and five from inferior courts. The great balk of business in Banc is (as it has always been) in the Trial Paper, though that is ranch rednced, as regards business in Banc, by the operation of Lord Cairns' Aot, nuder which the judges who try cases dispose of them on further consideration ; and, of course, Dew cases are continually being entered from time to time; bnt at this time only 69 cases remain in tbe New Trial Paper and 12 in the Special Puper—Biz special cases and six demurrers—and two in tbe Crown Paper and five from inferior court?, making altogether only 88 oases in Banc to dispose of, which two courts in Banc will be sitting continuously up to Easter to try, and, it may safely be said, will dispose of them all. As to Ifisi Prius business, the following isa correct account:—Total Middlesex printed list, 741. (Tbe figures on the list are 734. The additional seven were causes which were stayed at the time of the publication of the list, and were therefore omitted from it, hut afterwards restored to their places on becoming ready for trial) :— Tried, special juries, 80; common juries, 207— 287; withdrawn or struck out, 25G ; stayed, 21; in list for March 26, 4; made remanets by the patties, SO; remands for want of time to try, special juries, 19; common juries, 74—93; total, 741. Estimated lilt for Easter Sitting :—The above remaneU, 173 ; entered after the publication of the Hilary printed list, and now ready for trial, 344 ; probable entry to April 27 inclusive, judging by experience—say, 163; total, 680. Then the following is a corteot statement of tbe cues in the London List:—In the present printed list there are—Special juries, 170; common juries, 30S—478. Of the special juries, 14 actions by the same plaintiff (on marine policies) are stayed. About 20 other actions are also already stayed. The 478, therefore, should be considerably discounted before the real task which is before the < ourts can be correctly estimated.
