THE BILL TO SIMPLIFY THE PRACTICE. PLEAD
INGS AND PROCEEDINGS IN THE COURTS OF
This bill now in our office for publication abolish,
cs the proceeding by commou' law action in the
Circuit Courts, as ejectment, replevin, trover, cove
. '--mint, debt, trespass, &c It also abolishes the pro-
oeeding by bill and answer in the Chancery Courts;
and substitutes a proceeding by petition and answer
- for all cases now enforced by bill or by action.
There being but one mode of proceeding for the
enforcement of either legal or equitable rights, no
difficulty can arise from a question of jurisdiction.
All the expense, delay and loss of rights, arising from
- 'thla source, will be removed.
; .This is the first step in the process of amalgama-
" flic bill adopts substantially the rules in the
Chancery Court as to parties. It requires the suit
to be brought in the name of the real party in
interest, except in cases of executors, administrators,
. and trustees. It authorises the bringing in of all
persons interested in the matter in controversy,
cither as plaintiffs or defendants, and authorises
parties to"be brought in by publication in those which
are now called law case3 a3 well as in chancery cases.
This will wake the law uniform and harmonious in
rthe matter of parties, and save much expense and
delay in the determination of controversies arisin
from the restricted power of common law courts as
It abolishes the distinction between local and
transitory actions, and establishes an uniform rule as
to the counties in which suits are to be brought.
- ' This will remove some .obstructions in the path of
- - The bill abolisshcs the present forms of pleading?,
and declares that there shall be no pleadings but
petition and demurrer to raise a question of law
and no pleadings but petition and answer to raise a
question of fact, except there be a set-off brought
forward.in the answer, in which case the plaintiff
may reply. The bill requires the pleadings to be
concise, iu plain language and free from all techni-
calitieSj SO that a juror, witness or party, may un
derstand them. They must merely contain a cause
or causes of action, a defense or defenses,
not in a prescribed technical form as now at law,
nor shall they contain a history of the trausactiou,
' -with a large amount of extra and redundantmatter
as usual in chancery. The parties beisg subject to
be examined, detail need be set forth in the bill
with a view to require an answer in detail. The
petition and answer and reply must be sworn to.
This of itself would require an entire abolition of
common law pleadings, as no honest man could
swear to many of the declarations, filled as they
arc with false and exaggerated statements.
The bill authoiises the joinder of as many causes
of action as the plaintiff chooses without regard to
the nature of such causes of action. If cither party
desires to try them separately, on application the
judge may so order, if he thinks it essential to
justice, but all matters in dispute must be finally
adjusted in one suit. This is one of the most
valuable provisions in the whole bill; and will cut
off much cost and delay and greatly facilitate the
settlement of controversies; and settle them more
according to just iee than by the present law. They
may join causes which now require a suit in chan
cery with those which require one or two suits at
law b' different forms of action.
The bill allows amendments of the pleadings to
be inade at any time. The pleadings may be con
formed to the facts proved without delay, provided,
the opposing party bo not actually misled by the
pleadings as they .stood, and provided the alteration
in the facts stated in the pleadings so changed do
not create a necessity for other testimony. This
necessity, however, must be proved by affidavit or
otherwise, not presumed. The bill contains various
other provisions, which will in several forms of ac
tion reduce the pleadings to a few lines instead of
a few sheets.
The bill provides that matters stated in the peti
tion and not controverted on knowledge or belief
shall be admitted, and no proof thereof shall be
necessary. This will remove the necessity of much
proof highly expensive and often ruinous to the
The bill authorises the issuance of injunctions
and other chancery process under the proceeding by
petition, specifies the cases in which temporary in
junctions may be granted, requires notice, to the ad
verse party, in certain cases, of application for in
juction, ami substitutes on order of the Judge for a
writ of injunction.
It contains provisions in lieu of the action of
replevin. It authorises the judge or clerk on the
performance of certain requisites to order the shcr
iff to seize personal property, and to order the
defendant to deliver it, and this order may be en
forced as injunctions are now enforced. Thus ostab
lbliing uniformity in this particular.
The bill leaves those questions which are to be
tried by the jury, and those which are to be tried
by the court, as near to the present state of things
as practicable, and authorises accounts to be taken,
The bill requires the practice of oral examination
in open court according to present circuit court
practice, subject to certain limitations as to the dis
tance witnesses may be required to attend accord
ing to Federal Court practice.
The bill authorises the 'urties to take each others
depositions in cases in which the circuit court have
now jurisdiction, as well as those now triable in
chancery, and authorises the patties to examine
each other in all cases instead of one class of cases.
Thus making the law uniform and harmonious.
It authorises the examination of persons inter
ested in the event of the case, aud persons now in
competent by leason of a conviction for crime.
This is wliat is called Chief Justice D.vnhaii's act.
It was passed in England in 1S-13, and has since
been adopted in some four or five States. These
objections strike at the credit due to such witnesses,
not at their compctenc'. These moht important
r.nd valuable provisions go upon the idea that truth
is impossible to be obtained in a multitude of cases
without the examination of parties and persons in
terested; that moro truth and light will be elicited
iu almost all cases than falsehood; that courts and
juries arecompctent to give due weight to parties
and persons interested when they are examined
before them aud are thoroughly sifted. The testi
mony of persons interested and parties may be re
butted by the party introducing them, and they arc
entitled to no artificial weight. If a pnrty called up,
swears to a falsehood it can be disproved by the
party calling for the examination.
The bill authorises a trial by referees in cases of
account under the order of the court, discreel men
to be selected by the parties or by the court Their
judgment to be the judgment of the court, subject
to be appealed from and reviewed as iu other cases.
The bill authorises cither party to submit apapcr
to the adveric party, and ask an admission of its
genuineness; if he refuses the admission, and the pa
per be proved, he pays costs of the proof.
The bill authorises a more convenient method of
obtaining possession of papers in the hands of an
adverse party, either before the trial or at tho trial
which is applicable to all cases.
It provides for uniformity as to judgments, execu
tions and appeals. It adopts the commonlaw prac
tice as to bills of exceptions, and no proof goes up
but what is inserted in the bill of exceptions.
The object of the bill is to blend the common law
and chancery systems of practice, -id make one in
lieu of both, adopting tlie best features of each sys-'
tern, and discarding tlie rest The system proposed,
abolishing the present arbitrary classification of
rights "and remedies into, legal and equitable and ad
ministering both in one proceeding, wou!daccom
plislfthe most important and valuable improvement
in our jurisf rjdence that coidd be made.
It is not at all probable that thia bill b perfect in
its details. If it be not, can it not be perfected, its
errors corrected, its deficiencies supplied in a four
months' session ?
The bill authorises the" judges of the Supreme
Court to make such rules and regulations as they
may, deem necessary to execute .thia. law. This,
provision is intended to obviate unseen difficulties,
and has been always adopted with the organization
of now systems and new courts. It 13 a power
conferred on thesupreme court oftho United States,
and on the circuit courts of the United States, a
standing power now in their hands. It Is a power
conferred on the Judges, of the higher tourts in
England, aud it is a power conferred on the Chan
cellors in 1835, and at different times on the Judges
of the supreme court
it uirectsthe statutes, to be digested m accor
dance with the proposed system. This will re
move from the statute book a multitude of statutes
now necessary to keep up two separate structures,
and two systems of practice. It will thus reduce
the size of the statute book. It will also prevent
the necessity of ever recurring legislation on the
subject of these jurisdictions.
The first supplemental bill revises and simplifies
the statute of limitations.
Under the present law tho limitation was made
to apply to tlie form of action. The forms of action
being abolished by the bill,, it proposes to apply the
statute to the cause of action. This will render it so
simple that a justice of the peace can understand it
The second supplemental bill abolishes the Chan
cery Courts, as it would no longer bo necessary to
have two courts with concurrent jurisdiction in all
cases by petition.
a his bill, if it becomes a law, will benefit tlie
State as a body politic. It will benefit all parties
litigant aud will benefit the practising lawyer.
Somebody in Georgia said of the Inaugural of
Gov. Johnson , or this State, that it '"was a book in
which his Excellency, true to his oricinal callin
liad shown more of tlie goose than the Governor"
Whereupon, the Knoxvillo Register expresses the
opinion that "it is humiliating to the pride of Ten-
nesseans to hear and see in tho papers of the coun
1 T 1 .1 . i 1 ... .. .
uj- huuii ruiuarKs as mis; aim inc Humiliation 13
heightened by tlie reflection that such remarks do
no injustice to tho Governor of Tennessee."
What a pity ts, for their own sakes, that these
federal whig papers cannot hide the contempt they
feel for those who rise 'to high political f positions
from the working class! It has been heretofore
proved that our Governor knows how to handle a
goose, from the noise of the federal whigpapcrs,
it is evident, also, that he knows whaCs good for
geese! 1 '
Message of the Chief of the Cuehokee Hatio?.
We have received (says tlie Baltimore Suit) the
annual message of John Ross, tlie principal chief of
the Cherokee .Nation, to the National Council. It
is a concise, well written paper, lie says that the
year which has elapsed has been one of manifold
blessings; the seasons have been propitious to the
tillers of the soil, and the footsteps of pestilence and
famine have been far removed from their borders.
lie alludes in appropriate terms to the demise of
Kichard Taylor, Assistant Principal Chief; to the
murder of Andrew Adair and his son George W.
Auair, ana gives a history or the circumstances
connected with it; and then urges further legisla
tion for the suppression of mobs and unlawful as
semblages, lie says, that the late delegation to
ashiagton failed in their mission to sell to the
Government the "Neutral Laud," so called; and he
protests against a claim set up by Thos. L. Cling-
man, on behalf of the Cherokees who remain in
North Carolina, to a certain interest in the pro
ceeds of said land in case it should be re-purchased
or the United States. This failure leaves tlie fi
nances of the Nation in an cmbarrasssd condition,
lie proposes the establishment ot a permanent
agent at Washington; speaks of the Temperance re
formation as having progressed to a gratifying ex
tent; and says that education is meeting with in
creased favor among the people. Tlie boundary
indicated for the proposed territory of Nebraska,
would, if established, encroach on tlie lands of the
Cherokees; and to this invasion of their rights, guar
antied by the United States government, the mes
sage recommends that a solemn protest be entered.
Government Revenue. It is estimated that the
revenue of the government for the next fiscal year
ending in 1853, will be over $S0,000,000; from cus
tom alone, near $74,000,000; from public lands and
all other sources the balance. This might bo mat
ter of congratulation, were knot that it indicates a
vast importation of goods, luxuries and fashions,
that require enormous sums of money to pay for.
We are a very fast people, and as a nation have
got to living fast, and spending money very pro
fusel'. The American? have become the most ex
travagant people in the world. But with eighty
millions of revenue our government will be able to
accomplish purposes much desired and much need
ed. The public debt can be extinguished, the na
vy greatly increased, a grant of lands to the Pacif
ic railroad, and the public buildings at Washing
ton speedily completed. We can afford to increase
very considerably the list of goods imported dutyfree.

To the Editor 0 the Republican Banner:
The notice published in your paper of the 18th
of November, signed Ciiahi.es Moorman and others,
demands a passing notice at my hand. The Legisla
ture of Tennessee during the session of 1S51-2,
passed a law authorising the county of Davidson to
subscribe to various Railroad Companies whatever
amount of stock said court may deem expedient,
and to issue the Bonds of the county for tlie stock
so subscribed, providing, however, that the County
Court should not so take stock until the question
should first be submitted to the voters of the coun
ty, aud the majority of such voters shall have de
cided in favor of taking the steck proposed (see ses
sion acts, page i!75, sections 12 to 20.) Lr pursu
ance with this law, upon application of tlie represen
tatives of the several companies referred to in said
notice, tlie Quorum Court (which under the law has
power to discharge ail the duties therein named ex
cept to lcv3'thc tax and appropriate tho dividends
upon tlie county stock,) rendered orders directin
the Sheriff to advertise and hold an election on the
2Cth day of Marcli, 1853, upon each of the propo
sitions submitted to the Court by said Companies.
The Sheriffs return, 011 file in the office, shows a
decided majority in favor Of a subscription to each
of the Railroad Companies mentioned.
At tho April term of tlie quarter Session Court,
an order was -rendered appointing Messrs. E. IL
Ewixc, R. J. Meigs, and R. Houston, a committee
to report upon the propriety of making the subscrip
tion. Said committee reported in favor of making
tlie subscription, and the Quorum Court, thereupon,
at tlie May term, made an order that the Chairman
subscribe the stock in eouformity to the vote of tlie
people and tlie report of the committee, winch
was done accordingly. Thus the contract be
tween -tlie County and Railroad Companies was
rendered complete, and nothing remains to bo
done but to execute it or repudiate it

SALARIES OF THE" JUDGES. '' I
To Hie Editors of the Union American : g
This is the most appropriate fimo to fix tlie sala
ries of the Judges and Chancellors. ,. All seem to ad
mit that they are very badly paid; when the re
quisite qualifications for the station and the heavy
expenses ihey are bound to incur at taverns, travel-
ling and tlie purchase of books are taken into view.
Tlift "rnrnnpnsnsation should be such as to draw
from the Bar.to tlie Bench the ablest lawyers, and
this can only be done by giving them something
like what they can make in the practice. It is cer
tainly to the interest of the people to gettfie ablest
men on the Bench. To tlie Judiciary all must
look for'--the protection of property, character and
. personal liberty. The compensation should be so
fixed as to enable men who liave the ability, to
accept without regard to their pecuniary circum
stances. Now unless a lawyer has some other
means of support, he cannot go upon the Bench if
- he has a family. So the poor, no matter how well
qualified they may be, cannot, in justice to their
families, accept Judgeships. A Judge .should de
vote his whole time to the study of his profession,
and not'be under the necessity of diverting his at
tention.to other means of making money to splice
out an insufficient salary. The people are willing
to pay what is proper, but timid politicians refuse.
What a pity it is that men in public places will not
do right and trust to the wisdom and intelligence of
the people to sustain them. The people arc dis
paraged by an opposite course. '
They always sustain what is right when properly
presented to them and fairly explained. On this
subject there is believed to be but little or no divis
ion among tho people. It is confined to tho small
politicians. I have said this is the most fitting time
to act upon this subject By article C, section 7 of
the Constitution tho compensation of Judges cannot
be "increased or diminished during the time for
which they are elected." So if it isuot done by
the present, Legislature it will be eight years before
it can be again acted upon. The election goes be
fore tho people now for the first time and the
amount of tho salaries should go with ' it Let the
pay be respectable, so that the first-rate, men of the
Bar in each Circuit or Division of the State can be
induced to accept Let it be such as to enable the
Judge to feel independent and devote himself ex
clusively to his office for the benefit oftho people
who have honored him with their cosfidence and
aro willing to pay him liberally for bia arduous ser
vices. Let it be such as to stimulate the young
men to qualify themselves for the station- Ten
nessee is now, in all respects, about the fifth State
in the Union. She cleared herself of tlie reproach
of starving out her Governor by increasing his sal
ary from two to threo- thousand dollars. Has any
one hoard tho least complaint among tho people
about this ? Has any member who voted for it
found any difficulty at home? The people are
ahead of the politicians on this subject They are
ready to do right The poor man is aware that it
costs him nothing, and the property holder is will
ing to pay because he lias the better protection
from the talents drawn out by good salaries.
Compare the pay of our Judges with that given
to qualified men in other stations, j.iOur, Governor
now gets $3,000; and how does his -labor compare
with that of a Judge? That of the Judge, says
Uovemor . Campbell, who has filled both stations,
is twenty times greater. The truth of this remark is
known by all mgfyxho arc acquainted with the
subject The resident of a Railroad ge'ts from
four to five thousand dollars a year. The Presi
dents of some of the Banks in Nashville get three
thousand dollars. The Architect of the new Cap!
tol two thousand five hundred, and I have heard
there are Book Keepers in your city of Nashville
who get two thousand dollars a year for their ser
vices, ,Now should it be expected that a man who
has spent a long life in the acquisition of that knowl
edge necessary toxjuallify him to discharge the im
portant functions of a Judge, and can make, if he be
thus qualified, from three to six thousand dollars at
tlie practice, would be content to serve in an office
so responsible and laborious for fifteen hundred dol
lars? It should not be required, even if many are
willing for the honor, or because they have other
meaii3 of support, to take the offices, now often
is it found that the best qualified men in the Cir
cuits or Divisions positively refuse to accept these
places, on the ground that the pay is so much less
than they can make at tlie Bar and will not sup
port tltem and their families ?
But let us compare the salaries of our Judges with
those of other respectable States.
Soutit Carolina has four Chancellors at $3,000, six
Judges of the General Sessions and Common Pleas
at $3,000, and one at 3,500. .
Louisiana. Four Judges of the Supreme Court
Pennsylvania. Salary of Chief Justice, S3,CGG,-
ifasmeJiusetts. Five Judges of the Supreme Court
at $3,500, for the Chief Justice, and $3,000 for each
of the other four.
New York city and county. Six Judges at $3,-
From these instances it will be seen how this
matter is regarded by some of our sister States.
As to size, and quantity of business, Massachusetts
is inferior to Tennessee. But she employs Jive
Judges to do the business of her Supremo Court,
and pays them $3,000 each, with an additional $500
to the presiding Judge, when Tennessee only em-
ploj-s three Judges to do the same or more business,
and pays them 1S00 1 Should we talk any longer
of Yankee parsimony? Surely our present Legis
laturo will wipe off this reproach as to the Judiciary
as the last did in relation to our Executive.
It may and ought, however, to be said in justifi
cation of the Legislature, which fixed the present
very inadequate salaries, that the times were then
very different from the present The cost of living
was not half so much, no'r the price of land and oth
er property near so high. Now everything has
gone up and our Judges ought to be enabled by
their pay to sustain themselves independently in the
society ana circle in which uiey live, ine high re
sponsibility of the office requires this. The people
would underrate and condemn him if he did not
do it ' '
It tf believed that it is only necessary to get the
members of the present Legislature to look ai this
subject right, to settle the question in accordance
with the honor of tlie State and the best interest
as well as tlie wishes of the people. This is the op
portune moment and the only time to do it. The
present is a high toned, intelligent and liberal Leg
islature. None more so has for a long lime, or per
haps will very soon again convono. No-one should
think of les3 than $3,000 for the Supreme Judges
and $2,500 for the Chancellors and Circuit Judges
This is not, and cannot be made a party question.
It is one of justice, involving the interest of all and
about which there should be no division among the
members, as it is believed there is none among the
Many other arguments suggest themselves, which
I may. hereafter give the public iu another com
munication. A Democrat.

I Aftcrfonr yeara of arduous and laborious toil upon
the Nashville and Chattanooga Railroad, prosecuted
under many discouraging circumstances, in' the
Mountain portion of said road, and often yisited with
various epidemics of Cholera, Small Pox, Typhoid
Fever, and short estimates, which greatly increased
the costs, and suspended his labors, without curtail
ing his expenses; the undersigned finished six oftfie
heaviest dirt and rock sections upon the same; and
at a cost largely beyond the amount he received
therefor. And who embarked in this great enter
prize, in the hope, that its successful completion
would render his county rich and,' prosperous, and
to enable him to "strvggle,' through with hi3 con
tracts, he has expended every dollar he received
from the company and had to draw largely upon his
own private means.
The undersigned will state, that in the past few
days he has been in Nashville, he has settled his ac
counts with the company, and finds that, after get
ting the legal credits he was entitled to, and inclu
ding his own stock, his indebtedness to said road
will fall short of $20,000. And he will further state,
-that he has other equitable claims against said com
pany, which, if allowed, will greatly reduce that
amount, and if so, the undersigned is able and willing
to pay; although Dr. Armstrong says he is a Eank
rvpl and a Jlussian Baron the first statement is
simply vntrue, and as to the second, he would much
rather resemble a Russian Baron, than partake of
the attributes of a Bedford Btar.
