The inember from Giles, Mr. Bufoiid, lias intro
duced a bill to simplify the procectleings, practice,
, anil .pleadings in the Courts of Justice, and two
' supplemental bills to carry out the leading idea em
braced in it: lliat is, the amalgamation of the law
.and 'equity jurisdictions, which now exist in this
iSiate. This measure has now been before the legis
feXla ure some six j-ears or more. It was first intro-
(duecd intotuelegislaturc by tlie Hon. Austin jfiLtEB.
then the representative from the county of Harde
" man, and chairman of the Judiciary committee, a
gentleman well known for his sound practical sense
' "ami elfideney as a Judge and member of the legis
lature. The measure, like those which followed, was in
'a. troduced as a test measure. It passed the House
and was defeated in the Senate. It has since passed
the lower House at two sessions, and at the last by
"an overwhelming vote It was defeated by the
f .passage of a sort of substitute, containing some of
the provisions of the Reform Bill, which contained
an outline of the system.
2Tew York was the first common law and chancery
State which adopted the blendid system, whichivas
,JnJ.S48. Since that, some five or six other States
-havo adopted it. Inno State hasit been, abandoned
wlien once tried; and in all, so far as our informa-
tion extends, it has given general satisfaction. Only
, short time since the mails brought us news of one
- of the Judges of the Supreme Court, of New York,
.addressing "The Society of Lawyers," in London,
"frr the amendment of the law," (LordBisonai'AM,in
f,jhc chair,) in favor of the blended system, and
testifying to its complete and successful operation
,' in the State of .New York.'
We shall give a summary of the provisions of
Maj. BuTonrfs bill in a few days, and ask for it an
impartial consideration from that great profession,
which exercises, and justly, so much influence in
regard to every thing connected with the adminis
tration of justice. In the meantime, we give an
extract from a -speech delivered in the New York
convention, which a-Jonted this reform. It is from
one of the ablest lawyers in the State, and will
' speak for itself:
" 'To understand this question,' said he, 'it was
necessary to look at what these things called law
and e'nuity arc, as ' contradistinguished from each
other. In strictness, there could not be said to be
any such db-tinct systems as law and equity. They
were more properly called two distinct systems of
practice ; the one called too practice at law, and
the other the practice in equity. By the practice
at law, a man was only enabled to recover a simple
money demand with the two oxceptions of eject
ment and replevin. In ejectment, the plaintifT may
lecovcr land the thin'' itself: in replevin, he may
recover a chattel the thing itself ; but in all other
respects, a party can recover in the Jaw practice,
nothing but a sum of money. And to recover that,
he must adopt one or the other of five or six partic
' 'nlar forms ol action very technical and special in
form, and in which the pleadings are almost inva
riably fictitious, filled with filse allegations from be
' ginning to end They bore, to be sure, a certain
conventional relation to a truth, which they were
nipjtoscdto represent; and which conventional re
lation was perfectly' well understood by learned law
yers, aud tolerably well understood by the profes
sion generally, but which no layman would under
stand. For instance, if one were to rob him of his
watch, the forms of pleading, at common law,
would allow him to waive the force, and to bring
an action for the value of the watch, as upon a pur
chase. He could charge, that on a certain day, he
sold and delivered to the defendant, a certain watch,
in consideration whereof, the thief promised to pay,
when he should be thereto requosted, as much as
Mich watch was reasonably worth ; and that it was
reasonably worth two hundred and fifty dollars.
The defendant would answer, lion assumpsit that
he did not so promise. Every woidin the declara
tion would be false, and the plea would be manifest
ly true; aud yet there was no judge in the land,
that would not instruct the jury, that though this
was a very outrageous act. the party whose watch
it was, had a right to waive the wrong, and to have
twelve men say cn their 0Jth, that the defendant
did promise to pay, what the watch was reasonably
worth, in manner and form as he had alleged, and
that their verdict must be for the plaintifT. This
was a very fair specimen of the fiction which ex
isted in the common law modes of pleading. He
could consume hours, in giving similar instances;
but one was sufficient Indeed, almost through
out, the allegations in the declaration are false to
every common and ordinary intent But they
were said to be technically truo ; because, by con
.. r i l l-. : .i. .
f.tniction of law, the relation between the fiction in
the pleadings, and the truth it represented, was well
understood by lawyers and judges; and between
them, the could instruct the jury, to bring in such
a verdict as worked out tho ends of justice.
"It might be a.-ked, why such forms were adopt
ed. Their origin was of remote antiquity; but
there was no doubt of the true reason. Jurors were
originally very ignorant, and it was necessary, by
special and strict forms, to bring down questions in
issue to a very nice and simple point. And these
pleadings were modified, Irom time to time, until
they had received the cliaracter that was now im
pressed on them. They received their form, at that
period, when a scholastic pedantry had overrun and
perplexed, with its arbitrary rules, every branch of
science. And hence, of course, a very special sys
tem of pleadings came to be adopted. It was, how
ever, wholly inadequate to the ends ofju?tice; and
because it was, the system of equity jurisprudence
was adopted to supply its defect,-. That was equi
ty practice. Under legal practice, a man could not
get a discovery from his adversary ; could not reach
documents; nor get specified relief, except in a few
'To obviate these defects in the law, a clerical
chancellor introduced the civil law practice ; a prac
tice which, however disfigured in some places by
unnecessary forms however disfigured at this day
by extreme prolixity was nevet theless, in its own
nature, flexi'.le. highly convenient, and capable of
being made to answer all the ends of justice. There
wa3Titen)lly iu form about it. The party stated
his case, aiid asked the relief he de?ired; and the
court, if he proved his case, gave him that relief.
Under thispracticp, any suit for any kind of remedy
may be brought. It was always quite easy, bv bill
in cliancery, to sue on a promissory nulc." Yet, as
the English courts ofconimonlaw had jurisdiction of
the action, and chancery had no jurisdiction where
relief could be had at law, chancer' was never per
mitted to take cognizance of such cases. Thus,
from the inappropriatcness of the forms of the com
mon law, to answer tho ends of justice, this equity
practice was introduced. But it was not permitted
to act, except in cases of necessity. Thus the two
systems grew up together. And at the period of
the revolution in England, they had courts of com
mon law and courts of chancer-, as we have them
now; each exercising an extensive juridiction, and,
as a legal writer of eminence, by a typographical
blunder, was made to say, in regard to the court of
chancery, an expensive one.
"We adopted the old English forms; hence, we
have at tins day, these two distinct lorn is ol practice.
He supposed they could be abolished, undone form
made to answer every purpose. He thought the
keeping of them separate, was mischievous. In no
country of Europe, except Great Britain, did these
two separate forms exist The chancer- or civil
law forms obtained throughout the continent of
Europe, over the whole civilized world, wherever
justice was administered in regular form. Thev
obtained iu Scotland, for all the purposes of remedial
justice. They were used, for all those purposes, in
the State of I.oins.ana. In some countries of Eu
rope, where the civil forms of practice obtained
and in Louisiaua, they had the trial bv jury, in as
full vigor as under the common law forms. That
mode of trial was just as applicable, in civil con
troversies, in one form as in the other. The incon
venience of having these two forms of practice, had
long been felt here. In every State in the Union,
except .New York, New Jersey, ilarylatid and
South Carolina, law nd equity were now admin
istered in the same courts; although under different
farms of proceeding. And even in the four States
mentioned, and also in England, law and equity in
the last resort, was administered in the same court.
Tu Great Britain, the Court of Exchequer long had
a law side: the same judges administering "both
kinds of practice. Still, generally, they had been
kept apart in that country, as to the modes of prac
tice. "Efforts had been made, in several States, to

if practicable."
"Nor is .the view of the subject, which has .here
been presented, peculiar to the discussion which it
has undergone in that State. The attention of ju
rists in England, the only country in Europe in
which this distinction of jurisdiction exists has
been directed to its consideration. In his great
speech upon law reform, Lord Bbocgium, in dis
cussing the .subject of proceedings in the courts "of
justice, presented, as one of the prominent points
for the consideration of parliament, the abolition of
the distinction to which wc have referred; and urged
the adoption of ihe principle, that "no party should
be sent to two courts, where one is able' to afford
him his whole remedy; nor to a dearer and bad
court, when he can elsewhere have a cheaper and
better remedy; npr should any one be obliged to
come twice over to the same court, for different
portions of his remedy; which ho might have all in
one proceeding."
We have received a copy" of the address recently
delivered at Erskine College, S. C, by our distin
guished 'democratic friend, Jons IL Bright, Esq.
Shortly after its delivery, we copied from a South
Carolina paper a highly eulogistic notice of this ad
dress, and we are gratified to find, from the copy
before us, that the eulogy of our South Carolina
cotemporary is more than justified by the striking
beauty, eloquence and originality of the address.
Mr. Bnicnr has few superiors of his age as a scholar
and orator. Here in Tennessee, where ho b best
known, he enjoys a deservedly high reputation not
only for the power and brilliancy of his oratorical
powers, but also for the extent of his professional
and literary attainments. The address before us
cannot fail to make a favorable opening for him in
many places where he is now comparatively ulv
Reform in the legal practice of our courts by di
vesting it of useless and embarrassing technicalities
and reducing the whole system to one of common
sense and reason, is demanded by the best interests
of the people, and will, we hope, be effected by the
legislature or our state now in session.
Our present system of pleading and practice is.
beyond question, highly objectionable. It is full of
absurd fictions, overcharged with unmeaning verbi
age. and ridiculous in antique and redundant phra
seology. It is in great measure, an artificial svs-
tern of technicalities to which every thing is made
to yieta ana winch ollcn leads to the most absurd
results. Reason and common sense are sacrificed to
it, and justice is often made its victim. Hundreds
of litigants can testify to all thi3 and more.
Ihe whole fabric should be pulled down and re
constructed. The entire system should be reformed.
ihe old system, with all its fictions and technical
ties, its redundancies and absurdities, should be su
perseded by one consistent with common sense and
adapted to secure the ends Of justice, iet the
pleadings be reduced to a plain, untechmcal. but
full statement, by the plaintiff of the facts upon
which he bases his claim for a recovery, and by the
uelendant, the tacts relied on tor delence. Abolish
all those nice distinctions in the forms of actions.
and the merits ot the case will oltener decide its
fate. AVc will not then hear of parties going through
all the courts up to the Supreme tribunal, merely to
be informed, that some trivial matter not at all af
fecting the merits of the caFe, is wrong to be turn
ed out of court with justice on his side, and a
heavy, and often rutnons bill of cost upon his back
The system now in use has been handed down to
us from a remote antiquity, and i3 burdened with
the errors and absurdities of the times m which it
originated. Vhile the hand of improvement and
reform, has been busy upon everything else, this
old system of legal practice, like an ancient temple,
gray with the moss ot centuries, stands out a solita
ry monument of time "whereof the memory of man
runneth not to the contrary."
A radical constitutional reform has been recently
wrought, in the fundamental law of ourState, by ma
king Judges and Attorneys Generalelective by the
people. Progress on the subjpct is in the right direc
tion. The late Legislature made an effort to reform
the practice in our courts; but the advocates of a
thorough reform, were able to effect only a partial
reform. We hope, however, that the present Leg
islature will take up the measure where it was left,
and consummate the work. We suggest that some
member who wishes to distinguish himself and at
the same time, confer a benefit upon those who,
while they prize their rights, stand in dread of the
mysteries and "glorious uncertaintes" of law, will
introduce the bill, and if he is unable to draft a bill
adequate to a subject so difficult and comprehen
sive, introduce the subject in some shape. We pre
sent these crude and hasty suggestions at this time
merely to call the subject np to the view of the
"assembled wisdom of tho State." We may recur
to the subject again. Knoxvilie Statesman.
Hoes in St. Louis. The Intelligencer of Satur
day has the following :
"The first sale or contract of any note in this
market, this season, tookplace yesterday. An en
gagement was made by a city packer for 1,500
head Missouri fed to be deliveied before the 20th of
January, at the following rates all under ISO lbs.
$3 75, and all over that weight $4 net
As we stated yesterday, packers are in the mar
ket for No. 1 at ?4, delivered this month; but as
yet we have ascertained no sales that can be con
sidered a criterion for early deliver'. One packing
establishment has between 5,000 and 0,000 con
traded lor, including the l.oOO purchased yesterday.
The remainder were bought several weeks since, a
portion to be delivered here, and the balance on the
jlissouri river. These hogs cost on an average
from S3 75 to $3 87 j, but they cannot be consid
ered strictly No. 1, as they arc all Missouri fed. and
hogs fatted in this State do not turn out as vell in
weight and quality as Illinois or Iowa fed. We
think there is very little doubt about the market
for No. 1 opening at S4, or a shade above; at
all events they can be sold now for early delivery
at $4.

Delay not; harbor not in your mind that sentence of
fools philosophy, that a JueaM will get well of itself, or
that you can cure it with certain medicines for a few dollars.
Beware how you tamper with your general welfare.
Ye wild and vicious youths, why will ye persist in dosing
with usjUthynauMiitingcompaunU daily proffered, there
by impairing your appetite and digestion and destroying
you mentally as well as physically, when you can be cured
with a few doses of pleasant medicines ?
Ye rakes of every age and condition, why will ye suffer
and repine and drag out a miserable existence, unfitted for
the enjoyment and even ordinary puntiiU of life You
who are thus annoyed and wish to be restored to health and
vigor by a treatment at once pleasant and eflectnal, should
consult Dr. MORRIS. His success in chrunicle dUeaso has

At the Verandah Hotel, kept by Mrs. En

man from Scott County, Ky, who, for titdti monUit, suffer
ed greatly from a chronic disease of the stomach and bowels,
which could not be removed by the most ajjroeed practice,
respected and continued as it was for the Dector'it taie.
He had paid his Doctor's Bill, without any calculation of
making another, linking it was of no use; and no one ex
pressed any hope of his recovery except a stranger, who

course of treatment, which ha3 this recommendation, that
in Jice weds time it has made him feel like engaging in
business. But why does he come out of this, spell of sick
ness a strong advocate of Dr. Arnold's Union Pills?
Bcciusc, they are the principal remedy used in the treat
ment nf his case; and to their efficacy he is principally in
debted for his recovery. Should not such cases be publish
ed? If some persons are opposed to their publication, can
anybody tell u the reason why?

Dr. Morse's Invigorating Elixir Cordial
Among all herbs applied in medical practice, that which
forms the main ingredient in this preparation stands su
preme. It is Nature's catholocou. Had the travels of Dr.
Morse, which has added so much to Science in its various
branches, resulted in the discovery of this herb alone, he
would still have been the greatest benefactor of the age.
Mineral remedies are utterly superseded by this purely ve
getable specific. And you weak, dyspeptic, nerrous, sub
ect to sudden Hushes, convulsed with neuralgia or lie do
leretur, irregular in any physical function, enervated in any
organ; subject to spasmodic pains of any kind 1 Here is
your remedy. Is your mind, your memory clouded; does
your head fail you in business, are you depressed in spirits,
debilitated, worn out, and utterly "out of heart i" Here is
your renovator. Here is a stimulant more effective than
alcohul; permanent in its effects, and harmless to the system
as tillered water. Think of these thing, you that are sick
and suffering, and test our words by experiment.
The Cordial is put up, highly concentrated, in pint bot
tles. Trice three dollars per bottle, two for five dollars, six
for twelve dollars. C. 11. RING, Proprietor,
