The Chapel of Lincoln's-inn, which is said to have been designed by Inioo Jones, is about to be altered and enlarged under the superintendence of Sir Edmund Beckett, Bart., Q.C.

Mb. Arthur Kbkewich, Q.C, and Mr. Richard Horton Smith, Q.C, have been elected benchers of Lincoln's-inn. There is still one vacancy on the bench, caused by the death of Lord Hatherlet, but it will not be filled up until Michaelmas Term next.

Mr. Warton asked the Home Secretary on Tuesday last whether, "considering that Mr. Bradlauoh had given notice for convening and calling together on Tuesday, the 2nd of August, a meeting of persons exceeding fifty to meet in Trafalgar-square for the purpose or on the pretext of considering or preparing a petition to Parliament," it was the intention of the Government "to take any steps to prevent such unlawful assembly" on the ground of a contravention of 57 Geo. 3,o. 19, s. 23. Sir W. Harcourt replied that he had inquired into the matter, and had been informed by the police that there had been no announcement of a proposed meeting in Trafalgar-square on Tuesday next, but added that " in case of any publio meeting, proper steps would be taken to secure the observance of law and order." The enactment referred to prohibits meetings of persons, exceeding fifty, anywhere within one mile of Westminster Hall, "except in such parts of the pariah of Saint Paul's, Covent Garden, as are within the said distance," on any day on which either House of Parliament shall meet and sit, or on any day on which "the Courts of Chancery, King's Bench, Common Pleas, and Exchequer, or any of them shall sit in Westminster Hall," for the purpose of any petition "to both Houses or either House of Parliament for alteration of matters in Church or State." Such meetings are declared to be unlawful assemblies, but the Act prescribes no punishment for convening them, nor can we discover that any special punishment is imposed by 39 Geo. 3, c. 79, which confines its punishments to " unlawful combinations " and the permission of unlawful assemblies. The remedy, therefore, would seem to be by an indictment for a common law misdemeanor. However, this may be, it is well to point out that by 9 & 10 Vict. c. 33, after reciting that the provisions of this Act and of 39 Geo. 3, c. 79, "have given occasion to vexatious proceedings by common informers," it is enacted that no proceedings may be taken under either of the Acts " unless the same be commenced in the name of" the Attorney-General or Solicitor-General. It may be added that the getting up of petitions "for alteration of matters established in Church or State is placed under curious restrictions by the still unrepealed Act of 13 Car. 2, c. 5. That statute after reciting that "it had been found by sad experience that tumultuous and other disorderly soliciting and procuring of hands by private persons to petitions . . . to Parliament for alteration of matters established by law . . . have been made use of to serve the ends of factious and seditious persons gotten into power to the violation of the public peace," enacts aa follows: "No person . . . shall solicit, labour, or procure the getting of hands or other consent of any persons above tho number of twenty or more to any petition ... to both or either Houses of Parliament for alteration of matters established by law in Church or State, unless the matter thereof have been first consented unto and ordered by three or more justices of that county . . . where the same matter shall arise; . . . or if arising in London by the lord mayor, aldermen, and commons in common council assembled." There is a further enactment that "no person shall repair " to Parliament upon pretence of presenting or delivering any petition "accompanied with excessive number of people, nor at any one time with above the number of ten persons." The penalty is a fine of not exceeding one hundred pounds and three months' imprisonment, recoverable, it would seem, upon a prosecution by any member of the public—but this is a point which is far from clear.

We Havb Several Times referred to the effect ot section 56 of the Indian Act II. of 1874, under which the Administrators-General of Bengal, Madras, and Bombay were appointed, in removing the ground on which the old Court of Chancery allowed an executor, to whom no legacy was given in Lis character of executor, a commission of five per cent, on all assets of the testator collected by him in India. An agitation has been commenced for the repeal of this provision, and on Monday last a deputation waited on Lord Hartinoton to present a memorial asking the Government to take steps to attain this result. They are reported to have complained that "the law as it stood prevented persons from appointing executors of their estates." If this was the only complaint of the deputation we think their case was very weak, for we do not know that ihere could be a better proof of the confidence felt in the system of administration by the Administrators-General than the non-appointment of executors. If it is alleged that executors are not appointed because they cannot be got to act without receiving commission, the reply is that there is nothing to prevent testators from leaving legacies to the persons they wish to appoint executors, expressly made dependent on their acting. It can hardly be doubted that in a country like India, where Europeans die far from their friendu, a system of administration by a public officer must be advantageous, provided due safeguards are imposed for the proper execution of his duties by such officer. The system established by the Act above referred to appears to afford satisfactory safeguards. There is first the requirement of competent legal ability on the part of the Administrator-General; next, the requirement of large security for the due administration of his office; there are also stringent rules as to the investment of assets in his hands; and, lastly, there is a half-yearly examination of hia accounts by auditors appointed by Government. We may add that in 1855 a similar attempt was made to obtain a relaxation of the rule prohibiting private executors and administrators from receiving commission, but the Legislative Council, under the guidance of Sir Laurence 1'rel, Sir Barnes Peacock, and Mr. Allen , refused to assent to the alteration.

The House Of Lords has altered the amended clause of the Judicature Bill, and has restored the name of the Lord Chancellor in place of the senior puisne judge, notwithstanding the protest of the Lord Chancellor that he did not wish "personally, or even i fficially, to add this particular patronage to the responsibilities of his office." The Lord Chancellor has not hitherto hud any share in the patronage dealt with by the clause—that is, the appointment of masters or clerks in the Central Office—and since the clause providing that the appointment of masters or principal officers whose duties have relation solely or chiefly to the Uueen's Bench Division shall be made " with the concurrence of the Lord Chief Justice," has been struck nut, the effect of the change will be to give the Lord chancellor uncontrolled patronage as to officers with whose duties he may be entirely unfamiliar.

In the course of a case tried at Westminster on Wednesday week, the actuary ot the London and Liverpool and Globe Insurance Office stated, in cross-examination, that his office paid n commission to agents and also to solicitors, from whom the introduction of new business generally came, whereupon, Mr. Justice Field is reporti'ii to hiive remarked that no doubt solicitors, from their position, had a great power of influencing business of this kind, but it was a great question whether or not they ought to take commissions.



When, upon the decease of a trader, his business is carried on by his executor, the rights and liabilities of the latter, as well as the equitable right of property in the assets employed in the business at any particular moment, as, for instance, on. the bankruptcy of the executor, are not generally to be understood without attentive consideration ; and as several recent cases in the reports illustrate some of the principles applicable in such circumstances, it may bo useful to call attention to the subject, even if these late coses can scarcely be said to add to the already existing rules of law.

If we begin with the position of the executor personally, it must be recollected that the continuance of a business is scarcely a legal conception at all. "Business" consists of certain contracts by a person to buy or sell goods, or to perform services or works; and although one person may come after another in the occupation of particular premises, and make contracts of the same kind and with the same persons as the contracts made by his predecessor, yet the succession can scarcely be said to have any legal signification, except in so fir as it may involve a contract between the outgoing and incoming trader that the latter shall have every facility for making such contracts, or, in other words, shall have the goodwill of the business; for tho rights and obligations of each party in respect ot the contracts made by him are clearly and absolutely distinct from those made by the other. Whether the business is continued by a purchaser an executor, the position in this particular is the same. lu each case the creditors of the business will have to look primarily to the trader's personal liability, and as in the case of a purchaser they will have nothing else to look to, so also it may be in the esse of au executor. The liability of the latter is so purely s personal liability that, notwithstanding his right to pledge or sell the specific assets of his testator, it is settled that his general engagements do not bind the testator's assets (Farhull v. Farhall, 20 W. R. 157, L. R. 7 Ch. 123); aud consequently the right to the assets employed iu the business ut the testator's decease will, subject to the conditions to be presently referred to, remain what it then was without reference to the executor's business contracts. Nor can the executor, even by professing to trade as executor, prevent the application of these rigid rules (Labouchere v. Tupper, 5 W. R. 798, 11 Moo. P. C. 198; In re Leeds Banking Company, 14 W. E. 255, L. R. 1 Ch. 242). The contract would still remain a personal contract in respect of which he would be chargeable de bonis propriis, and not de bonis UstatorU. The creditors of the business as conducted by him bare primarily no concern with the testator's affairs. Even if the testator has directed or empowered his executors to carry on his business, and to continue to employ for the purpose the capital in the business at the time of bis decease, or any part of his general estate by way of further capital, the remedy of the creditors of the business siuce the death is still by action against the executor on his contract (Owen T. Delamere, 21 W. K. 218, L B. 15 Eq. 134); and it is only it that remedy fail, as by the bankruptcy or insolvency of the executor, that such creditors can claim, by virtue of the direction contained in the will, a specific right against the assets authorised to be employed in the business so as to have such assets administered by a court of equity for their benefit. The nature of this right, if it was eter doubtful, has now been clearly defined by the Master of the Rolls in the cose of In re Johnson (29 W. R. 168, L. R. 15 Ch. D. 548), where it is laid down that it is not on the ground of anything in the contract with the executor that the creditor has such a right, but ot the special equity that the beneficiary on whoae behalf the trade was carried on shall not take the benefit of his trustee's trading until the debts incurred
