MUCH INCONVENIENCE has been caused of lato by the unpunctuality of certain judges of the Chancery Division in attending at chambers. When it is announced that a learned judge will be at his chambers at three o'clock, it is not to the advantage of the prac. titioners who have summonses on the list that he should continue to sit in court until four o'clock. Counsel and solicitors are kept idle during the hour or more of waiting, which of itselt is a considerable grievance ; but a still greater is the fact that the time for transaction of the chamber business is seriously curtailed.

THE ATTENTION of practitioners should be directed to the amending order, which we print elsewhere, as to fees and percentages to be taken in the Supreme Court by means of stamps. The principal feature of this order consists in a direction that certain fees shall only be paid by means of impressed stamps, and not by adhesive stamps. The documents which are required to be stamped by impressed stamps are (1) all writs of summons for the commencement of an action ; (2) the præcipe on sealing concurrent, renewed, or amended writs; (3) judgments or decrees or decretal orders, whether on the original hearing of a cause or on further consideration, including causes commenced by summons at chambers, and orders on the hearing of a special case or petition, and orders by the Appeal Court; (4) peti. tions; (5) petitions for orders of course; (6) orders of course on petitions of right; (?) orders for a commission on a petition of right; (8) judges' fiats; (9) certificates on a reference to a master ; (10) recognizances and bail pieces; (11) commitments; (12) applications to produce judges' notes, and (13) transcripts of the Chancery Paymaster's accounts.
