It is when they land (hut they led their disap- pointment. The place js overstocked with emigrants, and a|j poor people. Theie is no money circolating, and not a capua) st amongst them. I dare say the pluce would be better it ihere was more money; but as it i«, they are very badly off. The emigrants are selling the few things they brought out with ihem for halt their value, to keep themselves from starving." CONSISTORY COURr OF LLANDAFF.—October 3L (Befoie liev. Chancellor Williams.) Twyniog v. Edmunds.— Pioctors, Messrs. Dalton and Groves.—• I he arguments of Proctors in this case haviug been heard at the previous couit, the Chancellor now pioceedeiJ lo deliver his judgment. His worship said this was a business ol proving per teltcs or io totemnform, as it was termed, the last will and testament of the late Edwaid Edmunds, Ellq., of Glamorganshire, II proceeding rtodereù necessary by Ihe opposi- tion which bad been laised to the will of the eldest son of tbe test>ltor, although hlluself Ihe execulor appointed under ii. Before, however, he (ihe Chanttttof) entered upon the question which the court h.d 10 decide, there were several mailers in con- nection wiih tbis cjMise, witb re-pert to wbi(h be was desirous ot expretslng his regret, la the fii»t place h» regretted that the caU86 ba" beea longer Ihan u8ullI-oo Ibe books of Ihe courl, owing to circumstances over which the court had no controul for instance, Ihe procior, who had been firlll,e,mployed by Ihe defendant, bad suddenly withdrawolrOm practising In the court and had thrown up this aiming othe' causes at it very inconvenient stage of the proceedings; so that thtre had been the unavoidable delay of a court or two before soother proctor could be appointed to lake to the cause. Besides, tbe citcuinstar.ce that the de- fendant had thought it necessary to examine so many witness —no less than ten—upon his responsive allegation given 10 against the will, and the consequent necessity that had arisen 10 the promoter to put in a second allegation, and examine wit nesses thereon; all this had caused an unusual delay, w h eh the court regretted it had no power to prevent. Again, the ea traordinary yrouud upon which the defendant had 'bought it right lo oppose ihe will, was »lso to be greall) legretted. It was always matter of regret with the court when near telaiives were induced to contend with cllch other by legal proceedlogs; bui there was special cause for regret in this case, the contending parties being brntber and sinter, aud 'he most respectable station in life and, moreover, children of the testator; and more tban all, the ground of the opposition to Ihe will be,ng alleged incapacity, arising from imbecility and unsoundness of mind; so thai the defendant, before be cou upset t e will, must prove the insanity of his owo father a course, w uc j the Chancellor said, he could not but beiteve must i»ve >een most painful to him (the defendant), as it would be to every p,flon „f right feelin,, to take; and one which most.persona would make »ny sacrifice to avoid. The defendant i» owever, c losen to take it, and it was now only for the iomt 10 give 1 s ecision, „od to say how far he was justified by the evidence in the choice Had maiie.
