IREL/ISD. COURT OF K[SG's BENCH, MAY 6. THE KING V WALTER SCOTT. An application had been made last Term, in behalf of Ihe Defendant, to have him discharged from the amount of a line imposed on him, for the ,fii ol),,jiii Itis -fis(-Iiarge from confinement, the time of I)is imprisonment having expired. Mr. Perrin staled, that the Defendant's Coun- sel having already spoken to the question, it lay upon the Counsel for the Crown to so on. The Court said, that it bein^ a liew case, and no instance of a similar application being to be found, they wished that Counsel who made the sll(;Ul I go ()I. Mr. O'ConneiI said, that he rose on behalf of the Defndant, Waller .Cox, to apply for his dis- charge from custody, upon his entering into a recognizaii(- e to keel) file I)eace, iiiasixiii C.k as that part of ihe judgment of the Court ha 1 been per- formed, which respected the term of his impn- s inmeut, whii|h had expired. The Defendant in this case had been sentenced, for a libel, to i welve months imprisonment, and at the expiration thereof to pay a line of 3001 or be imprisoned ,tIIldl It "nspai I. The 'erm of his uupra m iieut under the judgment expired the month of May last, and the second sentence for another libel expired in January; so that the whole having been performed, he had come forward now with an affidavit, stating that he was totally unable to pay the fine of 3001. which, if insisted upon by the Court, would amount to his imprisonment, for life. His affidavit stated, that his property con sisted in this, namely, his stock of books, worth it)!, his clothes 101. furniture ltd. an a house ol no value; il slates that from the period ol the sentence, he acquired no property,and tha, there- fore there cinild be no frallllllellt disposal 01 il or the pm pose of the application ofitiese facts, i there has been no denial out tie part of the Crown, and mus' he arlmilled as Irut'.

The Chief i uit i,itat was the cause of an inferior Court, aud not competent in sir h eases; iiiis is a Court of Appeal, which can iiiieitere ill auv way. Mr. O'Connelt said, that he conceived it mHfe no ditfer-uee; thai tlv Cuurf, in either case, would only require the party to plead ro the le- corl; and he cited 3th Cummin's Digest, II h Coke, 45, aud the 1st Rolls Reports, 95, winch authority recognized the method of getting rid of matter of ibis sort by pleading to the judg- ineiii, in the nature or a wilete DO c)i her reine(ly i,; civeii a',(] the qtie,,ti,)Ij itiett i'?, if the Court will put us to plead. The matter (or fact. wliere (lie matter of tact is admitted,and all the modem authorities recognise the practice ol doing that hy Inulioll to the Court, which could only be come at by writ of audita querela, that is the law lalll down in l,t Bosanqnet and Pullen, which was the case of an application to discharge-a certiifed Bankrupt of an arrest under under an execution. Upon those principles and those authorities, he truited the Court ought to interfere, and in that way by motiou for the dis- charKe of the Defendant. The Chief Justice—" I think it would be very novel and dangerous position to concede that any judgemet of this Court could he errone- ous, though the facts and circumslance of the case could not he known to the Court at the time of pronouncing it. As to the application itself, what is it ? 11 is to discharge a person from a fine ordered by the Court, on the ground of ilia. bility existing at the t ime, and continuing to rh6 moment of pronouncing the judgement. The party never thought Of to say one word as to that poverty, or at fhe lime his sentence was pronounced but after more than a )e;irg when the fine has been estra'ed into the Exche* quei, where, if there be a remedy, lie can have it, then an application is made to discharge the man under circumstances which he never commu- nicated white the judgment was hefore the Court, -iii(i it Wih III the discretion of the Coon, if the fine appeared beyond his means, they might im- pose some o<hcr punishment, commensurate with h s offence. I i' we now discharge this man, we enubte a party to conceal (he very ground of our judgment, till it is too |ate to use our discretion) but the fine,has been estrated info ,fit- Court of Exchequer, and the Sheriff and every Sheriff is responsible for the amouir, aud he ba9 no legal excuse for the non-payment, liut that he has the body of the party in his possession, or that he died in gaol.
