COURT OF CHANCERY, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 27 PHILLIPS V. JONES. Mr Richards and Mr Puller stated this to be an appeal against an order of the Vice-Chancellor dis- solving an injunction. The plaintiff was lessee of nine acres of land near Swansea belonging to the defendant, which contained coal, at the rate of 10s. for each weigh of 216 bushels, the rent in no case to be less than X300 a year, or GOO weighs. No coal was raised, and the plaintiff had paid -02,700, and he now prayed that an action for further rent might bo restrained and the lease cancelled, and that the sum paid might be computed in his favour, as purchase- money of all the coal in the nine acres. They cited Smith Morris," 2 Bro., 311. The Lord Chancellor stopped Mr Spence and Mr Cooke, and said "Smith v. Morris" did not apply, for here the plaintiff offered to pay for all the coal which could be got, out of the money of the defendant. He could not recover the by-gone rent; it was become another person's money. Perhaps the lease would bo given up if the amount of coal were calculated and paid for, as in "Smith v. Morris." The present appeal must be dismissed with costs.
