â C°,,RT OF EXCHEQUER, JUNE 6.âDoe on the Demise of hompson v. Sir Matthew Wood.âThe Attorney-General said ie was instructed to move for a rule to show cause why the ,|"n of ejectment in this case, on which depended the validity )f the will of the late James Wood, Esq., banker, at Gloucester, >hould not be disposed of by trial at bar in this couit, and why t should not be tried in any other county than Ihe county of Gloucester. The ends of justice, so far ;\s ihe equitable dis- Msa) of the immense property in question went, could only be net by having the issue ascertained before a jury and in a place vhere the conflicting feelings and interests of the rospective claimants could not prevail and that was in this court, and before a Middlesex jury. There were two other ejectmenis vhich he was anxious to see disposed of in the same rule. Lord Vbinger thought that it was not at all necessary to have the nalter disposed of I,ya trial at 11M. Much intricacy and nice |uestions of law might be expected, but all these might be airly brought before a single judge at Nisi Prius, and would ;ive the parties an opportunity of bringing the matter beforc mother tribunal by a bill of exceptions. With regard to changing the venue, there could be no objection to it.âRule Nisi granted. It was lately decided by Mr. Justice Coleridge that an inn- keeper cannot legally maintain and charge in his bill for waiters, chambermaids, boots, &c. unless it can be shown that the defendant had agreed to pay such attendants. In an action, therefore, lately brought in the Bail Court, an item of £9. for jervices of this nature, was ordered to be struck out.
