This measure will great. lyinctease the business of the Insolvent! I)ebtors" Court, and be a considerable saving of expense to the country, and dis- pense with much patronage of the Crown.; lIis Lordship is desirous of bringing in a Bill to this effect immediately after the recess, in order that the experiment may have a fair trial for one year, at the end of which period the Act under which the Present Insolveot Debtors' Court is con- stituted (whiih is also his Lordship's) ex- pires. If the measure-shall then be found to have succeeded, the two Acts will be consolidated into one. The number of persons considered entitled to compensa. tion in case the Bill should yas., we un- derstand is but small; the sum required .8 cotnpensation.-inoney will be about 5000/.
