The Officials of tbe Chancery Division wbo undertook
the vacation Work have not hud a very easy time of it, if
we may judge frvno. the number of orders made. The
Vacation Judges have made about 280 orders in court,
and the orders made in the chambers of the chancery
judges were as near as possible 590, making a total of
about 870. In 1879 the total was 850, and in
1878, 820. The vacation is a very different matter
now from what it was ten years ago, when only one
chancery vacation judge was available, aud all the
orders made were two or three score iu number at most.

The Judicial Appointments just made had been already
too much anticipated by public opinion and rumour to
cause any sense of novelty. Iu the case of Lord Justice
Lcsh, a somewhat advanced age is the only drawback to

the high qualifications which all allow him to possess.
But, although some circumstances have made the public
justly suspicious of the value of too advanced age on the
judicial bench, there is no reason to think that the
powers of the learned judge are iu any serious degree
impaired by his having reached a period of life exceeded

by that of several of his colleagues who are still vigorous

aud active. The wide aud exact knowledge of the Lord

Justice on many branches of law, and his great familiar-

ity with practice—always exercised under the guidance of

a clear and vigorous common sense aud a steady purpose,

not only to further the interests of justice, but to carry

out in their spirit the provisions of the new system—will

add to the Court of Appeal a member almost too valuable

to be spared in the Divisional Court from whioh he is

removed. In the appointment of Mr. Watxln Williams

as his successor, we are glad to recognize one who, by
his constant advocacy of law reform, stands pledged to
give to the Judicature Act and Rules fair and full opera-
tion—a qualification which we think of even greater im-
portance than the familiarity with mercantile law which

Mr. Williams is on all hands allowed to possess.

The Form Op The Information in the forthcoming

State prosecution in Ireland has been looked for with

some interest. All the counts appear to charge offences

which are included in the ordinary definition of a con-

spiracy, while the last one, which charges a seditious con*

spiracy, with other persons unknown, to cause aud create

discontent and disaffection amongst the subjects of the

Queen, and to excite aud promote feelings of ill-will and
hostility between different classes of her Majesty's
subjects, falls distinctly within Mr. Justice Stephen's
definitions of a seditious conspiracy (Digest of Criminal
Law, art. 93) as an agreement with one or more per-
sons " to do any act for the furtherance of any seditious
intention common to both or all of them," and his
definition of a seditious intention, as an iutentiou " to
raise discontent or disaffection among her Majesty's sub-
jects, or to promote feelings of ill-will or hostility between
different classes of such subjects." It will be observed that
all the counts in theinformatiouare for misdemeanors. The
law officers of the Crown have probably framed the in-
formation in this manner, partly with the view of obtain-
ing a trial by a special jury, and partly to diminish the
trouble likely to arise from challenges to the jury, since
the right of peremptory challenge (i.e., challenge with-
out oause) does not exist in cases of misdemeanors, al-
though it is usual to allow auy reasonable number of
objections of this kind to be made by both the prosecu-
tion aud the defence.

The Correspondence which has appeared in our
columns during the last few weeks affords an indication
of the extraordinary interest which is felt in the next
provincial meeting of the Incorporated Law Society.
We ventured some time ago to suggest that more profit-
able use might be made of these meetings if fewer
subjects were introduced; if only questions of imme-
diate practical importance were discussed, und were dis-
cussed at greater length; and, above all, if men whose
judgment and knowledge command respect could be
prevailed on to open their lips more frequently. The
