The defendant filed his petition of rnluntary
bankruptcy July 7. It does not appear that any
Lrabsequent proceedings in bankruptcy hare beer
'taken, and this is the only act of bankruptcy alleged.
From the sweeping nature of the bankmpt law, which

ay, my attachment was not laid since the act ef bank
roptee was committed, and -giTes me a right of pro
oertj orer the goods attached, becanse it does not be-
:ome roid under Section 979. The law takes all th
lebtor s property of erery kind whatsoerer, and ap-
. lies it to the payment of his debts. The title t
Sroodt attached is not taken from the debtor by tht
mere attachment. The eScer holding them has cer
tain rights, luch as are neeetsary to keep them safely
tnd he is subjected to certain liabilities in his charge
bat neither the eScer nor the attaching creditoi
s deemed the owner of the property. The debtoi
say tell the attached property, and the title woulc
pass and relate back to the date of the sale, unles-
iudgment be recorered and satisfied against him.:
His goods, when attached, are held in custody of thi
aw, as -of a stakeholder, to be returned to him oi
paid to his creditor, according to the judgment that
mar be rendered. Whaterer right the attaebinr.
reditor may have, to receive the valoe of the attach
ed goods in. satisfaction, of a judgment, must rest
upon Statute alone. It will not avail the creditor ti
'say that an attachment has always been considered
in the community as securing an interest and claiu.
iohich are shielded from the bankrupt law; and thai
this view is based upon general principles of law and
(justice. The control of the debtor's property is taker
frrm him by the attachment law, provisionally, and
or the bankrupt law forever and absolutely. Tht;
law which transfers the property to the general eredi
tors, must clearly and plainly, by express words c
Soecessary implication, show the exceptions.

a judgment to be satisfied after twenty years fron
ts dat Sect 1031, 1051. Ciril Code.
The pmrision of the Act nf 1817, making judg
stents a lien, is repealed and not reloaded, which
reason for saying that there is now no judgment lies;
known to our law. This was so held by Uelite Chief
Justice Lee, in Nathan rs. Vida't admrs., 1 Haw.
31. Bat in that case, it teems tn be regarded as
matter of argument, "in natural justice and the fo
rum of conscience," whether a judgment debt shall
Tare a preference orer simple debts. I regard it as!
purely a matter of statute, both in this ennntry, and
n England and the United States. By English com-
non law, as by tbe original law- of this Kingdom
ands during tbe feudal system were inalienable, anc
there was no mode of satisfying a judgment npoc
hem. Hence the English Acts proridins; for an ex
:ent on the lands by the sheriff", to hold until tlx
-ents and fronts satisfied the debt. Tbe Act nf West
ninster, 2, prorided for writs of elegit, or execution
to judgment, by which half th debtor's lands might;

j-achoents merely required the personal pretence of thr
defendant. Whatevermay have beentle common law
i jctrine concerning judgments in the English Conrts.fJ
.t is nndonbtedly eeand law. and is to beU in the Amn-E
an Courts, that both attachment and judgment lient
are creatures of Statute exelnsirtly. 3 Wash. Real
Prop. (ed. '1669) p. IT, note. Cross on Liens, p. 101.
fhe early Massachusetts laws instituted thtj caston
f selling the debtor's goods at auction, after seenri' g
hem by attaehxient on mesne process, and gave
lien on such gool, which remained valid for thirty
lays from judgiaent. See Qainey's Mass. Rep., p.
J9. n. 3. These, enactments, with subsequent Act
roviding for registration, hare been enacted in mis1
f the United States.
My first imprestion was, that the attachments nn
ler our garnishee process were not reached by thi
bankrupt law. The Statute makes them void whet
aid after the act of bankruptcy has been eommitte-i
fhe first thought is, that previous attachments art
valid, and that if valid for any purpose, it is to satis
fy the debt out of the property attached. Therr
oicht seem to be ne reason for attaching, and no se-l
.nrity thereby gained, if the debtor's bankrnptov
.be main thing intruded to be guarded against, dis
'olves the attachment, or makes it ineffectual. An
thsr serious coasideration might be, if the judgmeni
merged in itself the original cause of action, and als.
itbe attachmenCthat the judgment recovered after thr
bankruptcy could not be proved against the estate
If by entry of judgment, the very means afforded by
aw to make an attachment more effectual, the secu
rity as well as tie original claim are entirely lost
his would indeed be, not the first step that costs, bui
the second that ruins. The U.S. hanlrupt law ft
1S11 expressly reserved " liens, mortgages and othei
ecurities," bat even Judge Story thought that such s
lause was not requisite to protect legal liens. Es

The present TT. S. bankrupt law of 1S65 has no sue!
