TUE KEW CODE OF PH O CED UR E.
In what Respects it DiflVrs from thc
Old Form of Practice and Proceed?
ing)* at Law.
"Wc lind in thc Orangehurg News the follow?
ing letter from Mr. A. B. Knowlton, which will
be read with interest not only by the legal
fraternity, but by thc public generally. Mr.
Knowlton bas practiced law for many years
in New York, and is familiar with the code of
that State, from which the new code of South
Carolina has been borrowed; and his letter
gives what seems to be a clear and practical
idea of thc changes which it inaugurates in
the practice and proceedings at law:
To the Editor of the Orangeburg News:
Sm-As the adoption of the Code of Proce?
dure recently submitted to Hie Assembly
seems to bc beyond a peradventure, a few
brief outlines of a practice so radically differ?
ent from that which at present obtains may
not bc entirely uninteresting to my brother
members ol thc profession-probably not even
to the public at large, whose rights will, by the
new system, be rendered capable, in many
and important respects, of more prompt, cer?
tain and effectual enforcement.
All distinctions between common law and
equity arc abolished, save as to the relief ask?
ed, and a slight difference in the form of thc
summons; and all remediea are lo be sought
cither by action or by special proceeding.
AH actions are commenced by Hie service of
a summons, which is in all cases substantially
the same, containing, after the name of the
court and the title of the cause, simply a uotice
to the defendant, to answer the complaint, and
to serve a copy thereof on the plaintiffs attor?
ney, at his otlice, within twenty days alter the
i service ofthe summons; and that If he fail so
to do thc plaintiff will either take judgment
against him for the amount claimed? or apply
to the court lor the relief demanded, as the
cause of action may require; the former in case
tlie action is one on contract ior the recovery
of money only, the latter In all other cases.
The summons is subscribed by thc plaintiff's
attorney, and requires no teste.
The complaint, which correspond^ to thc
present declaration, may bc either served on
the d?tendant, or flied in the office of the
clerk of the court, and either at the time of
serving the summons, or within such time
thereafter as the defendant shall, after service
or appearance, demand by a notice in proper
The plaintiff has twenty days after service
of the answer (which corresponds to the pres?
ent plea) within which to reply, and thence?
forth the pleadings are designated as at com?
mon law. But as the allegations in thu reply
are lo be deemed traversed by thc defendant,
without rejoinder, further pleading is gene?
rally unnecessary to bring the parties to issue.
After Issue joined, the date of which is that of
thc service of thc last pleading, the cause
may be placed upon the calendar (or issue
docket) by either party, and be brought on for
trial upon a notice ol trial served fourteen days
before the first day of the tenn.
The fine-spun cobwebs of special pleading
are swept from their accustomed corners, anil
pleading as a science is no more; for the com?
plaint, answer, and other pleadings are freed
from all the technical rules. They must con?
tain a "plain and concise statement ol' Hie
facts constituting a cause of action'1 or defence,
and nothing more. Demurrer lies where the
facts are insufficient, as well as for oilier
reasons appearing on the face of the pleading;
a motion io strike out is the proper course
where the allegations are unnecessary or imper?
tinent. Allegations in the. complaint nol con?
troverted by the answer-or in the answer not
controverted by thc reply-are admitted. If
the defendant fails io appear within the twenty
jays, the plaintiff is entitled to judgment,
Qbh'lcii in many cases may be entered imme?
diately, the amount of damages being admit?
ted by the default; in others, aller assessment
of damages by the clerk, or ehoriffs Jury, or
upon proper application to the court. If the
plaintiff tails to reply within Hie limited time
the defendant is entitled to such judgment as
is his right, upon 6ucli fact? in the answer as
required a reply; e. g. in the case of a counter?
claim exceeding Hie plaintiff's claim, Judg?
ment for thc amount of such excess, Ac.
Thc provisions of thc New York Code, (ot
which, I am informed, the one now before the
Assembly is, with a few local alterations, an
exact copy,) as to arrest and bail, have already
become law in this State, in their principal fea?
tures, by virtue of thc act of September, 18U8,
which provides, also, that thenceforth there
shall be no arrest in civil actions save as there?
in provided. But as this act is framed under
the new system, while thc practice ls in all
other respects, as yet, unaltered, it would
seem that an attempt to carry out its provi?
sions might, as the law now stands, give rise
to some troublesome questions. Any such dif?
ficulty, however, will be avoided, and the pre?
sent incongruity obviated, by the adoption of
the Code lu the proposed form.
Thc remedies afforded by the common law
actions of trespass, replevin, trover and de?
tinue, for the recovery of personal property or
its value, are all obtainable under the new sys?
tem, in a single form ot action, and by a col?
lateral "proceeding"in that action, "to recover
the possession of personal property." Thc
complaint alleges the cause of acton, and, If
damages only ar" desired, Hie case takes Its
usual course; but If the plaintiff seeks a spe?
cific recovery ofthe chaltel, the sheriff, upon
being served with a sufficient bond or under?
taking, and with the proper affidavit on the
l?art ol the plaintiff, endorsed with ti requisi?
tion to that effect by tho plaintiff's attorney, is
required to take the property from the defend?
ant and deliver it to the. plaintiff, and the de?
le nd nut may demanda redelivery to himself,
by giving a sufficient undertaking, to the effect
that if Hie return be finally adjudged lu the
plaintiff, he will so return it, and that the
plaintiff shall be paid such sum as may, for any
cause, bc recovered against the defendant in
the action. The defendant is also ?inestable
for wrongfully or unjustly taking, detaining,
injuring or efolgnlng the property which is
the subject of the action.
This proceeding is .almost precisely similar
to thc practice in replevin which obtains iii
Pennsylvania, of which the learned American
editor of Stephens on Pleading remarks (8th
Am. Fd. p. c.\;.) "Pennsylvania alone, per?
haps, among the Slates of this Union, possesses
the most r.aional and effectual method of pro?
ceeding in actions of replevin that could pos?
sibly be devised. It meets every possible
case in which relief can be expected from this
form of action, without any ofthe inconven?
iences, the fear of which lias prevented its ex?
tension elsewhere. This action Hes, in that
State, in every case where the right to the
possession of goods and chattels is id contro?
versy, whether they have been forcibly taken,
or are otherwise diverted or kept away irom
their right owner. Nor does the party in pos?
session suffer any inconvenience 'or run any
risk from this proceeding. . * * How
this practice came to be introduced in that
State does not appear, but il has been found so
beneficial that it may be considered the com?
mon law of the State."
The provisions of the Code as to attachments
afford a remedy as well as a preventive in
many instances wlwrc the plaintiff is at pres?
ent remediless, and, for an agricultural com?
munity, are, perhaps, quite as comprehensive
as is necessary. They have given very gene?
ral salisfaction to thc profession in New York,
although in seine cases proving rather lou
strict and technical for thc sudden and urgent
necessities of a great commercial city.
Special proceedings are all proceedings oilier
than actions-such as habeas corpus, certiorari,
proceedings for the sale ot infant's estates,
dc ?unatico, &c, and are governed by Hie rules
ofthe common law, or ofthe sunnies lo which
they owe their origin, or of either as controlled
or modified by the other.
As my purpose was merely to give a brief
resum? ot some ofthe more important features
of practice under the proposed Code, I shall
say nothing as to the comparative merits or
the two systems. That the new method will,
at, first, find many and bitter enemies, there is
little doubt. Some antideluvian fossils in New
York coniinuc their sneers at it even to Hie
present day, though it has been in operation
there for twenty-one years. And to the ques?
tion, put conumdnim-wlse, "Why David Hud
ley Field and the othei members of the prac?
tice commission were like au individual suf?
fering lrom a severe attack of Influenza ?" the
irreverent and shocking answer lias been re?
turned, that it was because they "had a bad
code iu their heads."
Throe results, however, will pretty certainly
follow the change, namely:
1st. That practitioners' under- thc old sys?
tem will continue to prefer it until thev forget
2d. That then they will continue to prefer
the new system until they understand it.
3d. That thc trades and handicrafts will
lose many an excellent workman to furnish
tlie profession with that-ot" which lt has al?
ready a sufficient supply !
Hoping that I shall not trespass on your
printer's case (lt can't be done under Hie
code 1) Yours, ?fcc,

^THE LIVING MACHINE.-INJURE
thc maiu spring ora watch, and every portion of
the works become disordered. The human stom?
ach ls to the human system what that elastic
piece of metal ls to a chronometer. It influences
thc action of the other organs, and coutrols, to a
certain extent, the whole living machine. The
comparison may bc carried further; for as thc
weakness or other imperfections of tho malu
spring ls Indicated on the face of the tlrae-plece,
so also ls thc weakness or other disorder or the
stomach betrayed by Hie face or the Invalid. The
complexion ls sallow or faded, the eyes arc defi?
cient in lustre and Intelligence, and there is a
worn, anxious expression In the whole counte?
nance, which tells as plainly as wrltteu words
could do that thc great nourishing organ, whose
odldc it is to minister to thc wants of thc body,
and to sustain aud renew all Its parts, ls not per?
forming Ita duty. It requires renovating and
regulating, and to accomplish this end HOSTET
TE R'S STOMACH BITTERS may be truly said to
be thc one thing needful. Thc broken main
spring of a watch may be replaced by a new one,
but thc stomach can only bc repaired and
strengthened, and this is one of thc objects of the
famous vegetable restorative which for eighteen
years has been waging a successful contest with
dyspepsia in all climates. As a specific for Indi?
gestion lt stands alone. When the resources of
thc pharmacopoeia have been exhausted, without
at best doing more than mitigating the complaint,
a course or this wholesome and palatable, yet
powerful stomachic effects a perfect and perma?
nent cure. In all cases of dyspepsia thc liver is
more or less disordered, and upon this important
gland, aa well as upou thc stomach and bowels,
thc Bitters act with singular distinctness, regulat?
ing and reinvigorating every secretive and as?
similating organ on which bodily mid mental
health depend. Jan8 GDAC
