Instead of the present course of proceed- [proceeding] ing in the Court of Chancery,-which refused to deal with a -ease unless in a manner which would enable it to do.complete. and thereby rendered expensive preliminary pro- [proceedings] -ceedings [proceeding] indispensable,-this bill provided that if the parties should concur in stating the question for the Court Fin the form.efa.special [form.ea.special] cage, such special case should be tiled, in the same manner as bills, and when the de- [defendants] fendants [defendant] a the case should be-heard and, at. once 'decided. 'The effect of this alteration would' be, that there would be no bill, no. answer, no enquiries in the master's office, and all the delays attending the prelimi- [prelim- preliminary] nay ings.

SOLICITOR- [Solicitor general] GENERAL did not offer the slightest opposition to the second reading of the bill, but called Mr., Turner's attention to one or two important points. of a technical character. The -machinery ky which, the. the bill were to be carried out was admirable; though he. feared that sufficient power was not given te the court to alter the machinery.

Mrs, Lister bravely refused to comply with their request, at the same time telling the prisoners that they had better be off, as her was coming up. They told her, however, that if she did not. mmegiately mediately] give them her money, they' certainly have her life.

LANCASHIRE AND YORKSHIRE RatLway.--Mr, [Railway.--Mr, Corry has reported from the select committee of the House of Commons, that the objects of this company's bij [bi] are to em- [empower] power the company to increase the tolls Jeviable [Cable] on their railway, and to amend.some of the. provisions of their ex- [existing] isting [sting] acts. The commidtee-think [committee-think] it right to dissent from the conclusions of the Commissioners of in their report, and to sanction unanimously a partial in- [increase] crease of the existing tolls of the company. They advert to a clerical. errer [ere] contained in the report of the commis- [comms- commissioners] sioners, [sinners] inyolying [lying] a difference of nearly 18 per cent. azainst [against] the company in the expense of conducting their passenger traffic and it to the committee thasif [this] the com- [commissioners] missioners had detected this error in time, they might have been induced to modify their opinion against any, igerease [increase] of the existing tolls. The evidence has,not appeared to the committee to. kear [ear] out the conclusion of the commis- [comms- commissioners] sioners [sinners] that the-present trafEc [traffic] main line is at least sufficient to yield the same dividend (5.73 per cent.) that it in, 1 LZ upon the capital in the con- [construction] struction [instruction] of that portion of the line. It has, on the con- [contrary] trary, [Tracy] tended to show that the dividend yielded by the traffic on the main line in 1841 exceeded in a. very slight degree the gross-dividend on the ag te.undertakings of ithe [the] company. The committee believe that the existing will not give a reasonable return upon tHe [the] capital in- [invested] -vested ;. [and that without parliamentary relief the company would. be compelled to resort to measures of economy by which the publie, [public] convenience would suffer. They do not that theprasext.
