In our account of Sir Samuel Romilly's Bills, we omitted to mention the 49. Geo. III. c. 6, which he succeeded in carrying without opposition. The object of this act, is to extend the provisions of the Lords' act to the case of persons in custody under attachment for not paying money or costs pursuant to orders or decrees made by Courts of Equity. Nothing could be more proper than this extension ; for the distinction is merely technical, between confinement for debt in execution, and confinement under attachment.- We ought also to have noticed a bill brought in by Sir Samuel Romilly in 1808, but which he found so much opposed that he speedily dropt it; the object of which was, to give a compensation to persons unjustly detained in custody for crimes of which they were afterwards acquitted.The alteration of the Bankrupt law, respecting the proportion of creditors required to sign the certificate, was made in the Lords. Sir Samuel Romilly's bill went out of the House of Commons with the old proportion of four-fifths, and a power to the Chancellor to grant the certificate, if he should, on examination, find it unjustly withheld. To this change, made by the Lords, Sir Samuel, it is understood, reluctantly agreed. We may take this opportunity also to express our regret,
that we have been again prevented from giving our readers some account of M. Dumont's rery profound and interesting publication, “ Sur les Peines et les Recompense's." We confidently hope to atone for this omission in our ensuing Number; and iu the mean time, we cannot refrain from suggesting to M. Dümont, that he might coufer a great obligation on the public in general, and the profession of the law in particular, if he could be prevailed on to present them with a short abstract of his principles, in their application to the practice of our jurisprudence, and to the improvements suggested by Sir Samuel Romilly and other eminent individuals.
