CURRENT TOPICS.

We Learn that Mr. Gboroe D. Fotherell, of FleetBtreet, Dublin, haa been appointed Solicitor to the Irish Laud Commission.

The "Block" in -vacation business still continues. The hopeless state of the Queen's Bench list of Bummonses is indicated by a correspondent of the Times, who states that, on taking out a judgment summons a few days ago, he was told that the 2nd of November was the earliest day which could be appointed for the hearing. On Wednesday afternoon both the Vacation Judges were occupied in hearing au application for the discharge of five persons who had been arrested under the Extradition Act, while the appeal against the decision of Mr. Justice Bowen, refusing an injunction in the Fulham Smallpox Hospital case, was only partly heard, and had to be adjourned, with other appeals and some of the chancery business, until Thursday. The simplest remedy for the present state of things seem? to be the appointment of a third Vacation Judge, but it is at least desirable that a separate day should be Axed for the sitting of the Divisional Court.

■ yACATI0N Business appears to sit more lightly upon judges in the United States, for the Chicago Legal News observes, "Judicially, Chicago has been very quiet for

the last two weeks. It has been next to .impossible to find a live common law judge." It appears that "a large number of ex-judges have spent their entire vacation in this city," but (our contemporary adds) "they cannot issue a writ of habeas corpus, take bail, or release a prisoner from gaol." It would be somewhat tantalizing for au English vacation judge to read the following statement: "Judge Harlan, of the United States Supreme Court, paid Chicago a flying visit this week, held court a day, and left for the seaside."

The Dimensions of the Supreme Court of Judicature Bill have been much reduced in its progress through Parliament, the patronage clauses having been, like those relating to the constitution of the Court of Appeal and to the re-arrangement of assize towns, postponed for a year. The Attorney-General has added two new clauses, one of them preventing a district registrar from acting as a solicitor or agent in any proceeding in his registry, and the other dealing with appeals to the House of Lords. Every appeal is to be brought within a month if the House is then sitting ; and if not, within fourteen days of the commencement of the ensuing sitting. Moreover, in proceedings in the Court of Appeal in divorce and mntrimonial causes, or proceedings under the Legitimacy Declaration Act, there is to be no appeal to the House of Lords without leave, except upon the grant or refusal of a decree of dissolution or nullity of marriage, or of a declaration of legitimacy. The same clause provides for the abolition of that anomalous tribunal, the "Full Court" of Divorce. Mr. H. Fowler's amendment for the shortening of the long vacation, by providing that the Michaelmas Sittings should commence on the 18th of October, was warmly supported from all parts of the House, but was opposed by the Government and defeated by a majority of eighteen, the Attorney-General basing his opposition on the ground that the proposed change would be inconsistent with the understanding upon which the judges were appointed. If, however, this objection is to be valid, any shortenings of the vacations would be impossible without the resignation of all the members of the Supreme Court.

The Colclouoh Stamp Foroeries at Dublin were mentioned in the House of Commons on Monday night, when Mr. Healy elicited from Lord Frederick Cavendish the expression of an opinion that an Act of Parliament legalizing the documents upon which the stamps forged by Colclouoh had been impressed would not be neoessary, because the forgeries had been confined to Judicature and Judgment Registry Fee Stamps, which the Board of Inland Revenue have the power of authorizing to be stamped at any time. He also stated that no blame appeared to attach to anyone for the frauds having remained so long undetected, and that it was impossible to estimate the loss which had been occasioned to the Revenue, since the authorities could not ascertain how many of the forged stamps had been allowed for as spoiled stamps. The present state of the matter is by no means satisfactory, either to the profession in Ireland or to the Revenue authorities.

Wb Announce this week the decease of two well-known Queen's Counsel. The sad and painful death of Mr. ClarkSon will have caused in the profession a feeling of regret by no means confined to his numerous professional friends. Ever since the Court of Admiralty was thrown open to the whole of the bar he had enjoyed the largest share of the junior business in that court. It was not till March last that he obtained the well-deserved honour of a silk gown, but the last five months enabled him to establish a firm position as a leader before the same tribunal, and it was hoped that a still higher position was in store for him. Mr. James Stuart Wortley was the oldest surviving Queen's Counsel, having obtained silk in 1841, when lie was a barrister of only ten years' standing. He probably filled a greater variety of legal posts than any other member of the bar. After obtaining a leading position on the Northern Circuit, he became- successively standing counsel to the Bank of England, AttorneyGeneral of the Duchy of Lancaster, and Solicitor-General to the late Queen Adelaide. In 1846 he sacrificed his hopes of professional advancement to hold the office of Judge Advocate-General under Sir Robert Feel, but six months later his party were driven from office. He was next elected to tho lucrative office of Recorder of London (retaining his seat in Parliament), but in 1850 he resigned this post to become Lord Palmerston's SolicitorGeneral, this being the ot.ly instance for many years of that office being held by a Privy Councillor. Unfortunately his health compelled him, within a few month?, to retire from his post, and thus each occasion of his accepting office proved an injury to his prospects of advancement. Mr. Charles Stuart Wortley, M.P., has thus far followed in his father's stops by obtaining a seat in Parliament within two years of his call to the bar.

The Recently Issued parliamentary paper containing tho correspondence between the Foreign Office and our representative at St. Petersburg, on the subject of the expulsion of foreign Jews from Russia, brings down the history of the Lewisohn case to the 18th of July. It will be remembered that Mr. Lewisohn is a native of Hamburgh, of Jewish extraction,but naturalized in England and trading in London, and that, on visiting St. Petersburg on mercantile business last year, he was, although the bearer of a passport with the signature of Lord Granville and the visa of the Russian consul in London, ordered to leave for the frontier within twentyfour honrs. The present return contains a long memorandum from M. CiKszK0W8Xi, the legal adviser of her Majesty's Embassy at St. Petersburg, on the subject of the laws and police regulations of Russia affecting native and foreign Jews, and this is followed by an opinion from the same gentleman on the subject of Mr. Lewisohn's case. He states that if Mr. Lewisohn's expulsion was based on the mere fact of his being a Jew, the action of the authorities was not in accordance with the laws of the Empire, since it contravened both the 2nd and 16th articles of the "Regulations for the Issue of Passports," the latter of which articles invests every foreigner who arrives in Russia with a duly legalized passport with an unrestricted right of residence in the Empire for six months. He further expresses his opinion that, even if Mr. Lewisohn had reached St. Petersburg with a passport which the bureau des ilrangtrs did not consider valid for the purpose of residence in the city, and if the consular officer whose visa appeared upon the passport did not know him to be a Jew, and therefore he must be looked upon as residing in the city without a legal written document, the order for his departure within twenty-four hours was not justifiable. The opinion then refers to section 5, prolongation of article 614, of the Code of Laws (Passports) (being temporary rules issued in 1874 of recall from St. Petersburg of persons not supplied with passports) by which only persons of immoral conduct, of no means of subsistence, suspected of attempts against public peace and order, are liable to ejection from the capital by administrative process; while by seeticn 2 of the tume rules persons found

resident in St. Petersburg but unprovided with passport.', it their lives are ascertained to be peaceful and inoffensive, are to be provided with a temporary passport enabling them to reside in the capital for not more thin six months. After the receipt of this opinion, Lord Granville addressed a dispatch to our representative ix St. Petersburg narrating the circumstances of Hi. Lewisohn's expulsion from St. Petersburg, and alio stating that in answer to an inquiry addressed by himself the Russian Government had declined to alio* Mr. Lewisohn to return to Russia on matters of business. The dispatch then points outjthat the Treaty of 1859 between England and Russia, providing for the subject! 0! each of the contracting Powers visiting the dominions cl the other, applies to all British subjects, without distinction of creed, and that consequently the expulsion of Mr. Lewisohn is a violation of the provisions of thai Treaty. He therefore requests from the Russian Government "an explanation of what is apparently « violation of the treaty rights accorded to her Majesty." Mr. Lewisohn's claims do not, therefore, seem to hare made any progress; and it is to be observed that the present correspondence makes no allusion to the request for compensation which was originally made on hi) behalf by Lord Granville. The answers given by Sir Charles Dilke to the inquiries of Baron Db Works on Tuesday do not indicate the probability of a speedy solution of the question. "Pending the result of Sis friendly communications which are taking place," the Under-Secretary declined to mako any statement as to the intention of the Government to protect Mr. Lbwisobs from a second expulsion upon his re-visiting Russia.

THE LATE MR. CLARKSON, Q.C.

It is with extreme regret that we have to announce the premature decease of this gentleman, which took place at Pinner, on the morning of Friday, the 19th inst. Mr. Eugene Comerford Clarkson, who *ithe third son of the late Mr. Frederic Clarkson, 0! Doctors' Commons, so well known as tho head o( one of the leading firms of proctors, was born the year 1831, and was educated at King's College, London. He was admitted a student of Lincoln'i-uia on the 27th of March, 1850, and he was called to the bar by that society iu Hilary Term, 1854. His original intention was to practise as a conveyancer, and he soon acquired a valuable and increasing practice this nature. His drafts were from the first remarkable for their anxious elaboration and polish, for the prodnction of which result he thought no amount of labour to} great. He was never tired of repeating the maxim, ".Vt"At7 si>:ih! /actum est et per/ectum," and it u probable that, had he continued to practise conveyancing, his drafts would by this time have been celebrated models of artistic finish, attained, however, at the cost oi an amount of labour and anxiety altogether disproportioned to the visible results. But the Act of 1857, which threw open to the whole of the bar the practice of tie Admiralty and Ecclesiastical Courts, theretofore the exclusive " preserve" of the Faculty of Advocates, opened to him a new career, and although his characteristic diffidence caused considerable hesitation at first, before he could make up his mind to abandon the known for the unknown, he very soon confined his practice entirely to

I the Court of Admiralty, where he achieved success with a rapidity and completeness which astonished him*" much more than it did those who knew him. So rapid was his rise in professional positiou that, so bug M 1868, when a creation of Queeu'a Counsel was im'
