One of the The courts might, very well have held the contrary, questions which arose in this case was, whether a plea and have left the matter to the agreement of the par. which averred the making and delivering by the deties; but 'undoubtedly the law is so settled. The fallacy fendant to the plaintiff of three negotiable promissory in Cumber: V, Wane appears to have been in look. notes for 1251., 1251., and 50l., and the plaintiff's ac- ing; upon the promissory note as creating merely a ceptance of the same in satisfaction and discharge of simple contract of the same nature as the simple contwo debts of 5001. and 5001., and damages and costs, was tract created by the debt, and not adverting to the good. “If," said one of the judges, “the case of Cum fact, that the former, though in the eye of the law but bor y, Wane were law, and a binding authority upon a simple contract, nevertheless possessed in its negous, undoubtedly we could not come to a conclusion in tiability a property which might well make it a reafavour of the defendant. That case was one of assump- sonable satisfaction for a larger sum. Therein lies the sit for 15l., to which the defendant pleaded that he gave distinction between it and the giving a sum of money, the plaintiff a promissory note for 51. in satisfaction, though it must be confessed that it is a very fine one. and that the plaintiff received it in satisfaction; and it was held on writ of error after judgment for the DISPOSITION OF A MARRIED WOMAN'S REplaintiff that the plea was ill. It does not appear | VERSIONARY INTERESTS IN PERSONALTY. from the report whether the note was payable presently, or whether it was negotiable or not. The facts are

(From a :Correspondent). not sufficiently stated to make it a binding authority." The least exceptionable part of the policy of courts of And quoting the judgment delivered by Pratt. C. J., equity, with respect to married women's property, is

certainly the rule by which their reversionary interests

are protected. Their separate property in possession, must, with every respect for the great authority of that whether made inalienable or not, too often procures for learned judge, express my dissent. Undoubtedly, at their husbands a credit which the event does not justify; that time it was not law; for in Pinnel's case, (6 Rep. but reversionary property, protected from alienation, 117), it was laid down as clear matter of law, that in can give no false appearance of responsibility, and is

So long, then, as the fore, he was at liberty to do so; and the court never preservation of a married woman's reversionary proinquired whether the satisfaction was reasonable: they perty is recognised as a fit object of equitable jurisdicleft it to the agreement of the parties. However, it tion, there can be no reason for encouraging any relaxadoes not appear, in the case of Cumber v. Wane, that the

of Hall v. Hugonin, (reported and commented upon in plaintiff had any benefit from it. The marginal note of the last Number of ÌAE JURIST), the Vice-Chancellor that case_ Giving a note for 5l. cannot be pleaded as of England has confirmed some authorities of no great a satisfaction for 151?_was expressly denied to be law weight, and has virtually repudiated the duty which by Lord Ellenborough in argument, in the case of the Court of Chancery had been supposed to have taken Heathcote v. Crookshanks; and Buller, J., referred to upon itse

upon itself with regard to the reversionary interests of

married women; and he has based his decision upon a case of Hardcastle v. Howard, in which it had been

mich it had been reasoning, which, with deference we submit, not only so denied to be law. But, whether the case of Cumber proceeds upon technical distinctions wholly foreign to v. Wane has been overruled or not, it appears to me the spirit of the doctrine, but is, in itself, technically that it cannot be sustained as an authority that the ac- unsound. The kindred branch of equity doctrine receptance of a negotiable security may not be a satis: | lating to separate estate remained long in as unsatisfacfaction of a claim to a larger amount.” It is important

tory a state as that to which the case of Hall v Hugorén

a has reduced the rule before us; and a decision over to observe, that the decision in this case appears to be ruling that case would not be made in the face of a more founded upon the promissory note being in the nature formidable array of authority than that which was deof a chattel. The giving the promissory note is said to molished in Tullett v. Armstrong. . We shall therefore be a satisfaction, by giving a different thing, not part of presume to treat the question as still open, in the hope

that it will be further agitated, and finally settled upon the sum itself, having different properties. It is of un-1)

satisfactory grounds, both of reasoning and of policy, certain value, -it may be of equal, but that the court It, would fatigue the patience of our readers to enter cannot enter into: it is sufficient that the parties have again into an examination of the authorities on this so agreed. And, therefore, it must not be supposed subject. (See 9 Jur. 514; 10 Id. 183, 231, 243). The that the principle upon which the role in Cumber v. general' rule is well known, and there is now at least

no doubt as to the existence of authority for the sup Wane is professedly based, namely, that 51. would be

We add the words in Italics because they guard against such an inference.
