Seite 272 - Nothing can call forth this court into activity but conscience, good faith, and reasonable diligence. Where these are wanting, the court is passive and does nothing. Laches and neglect are always discountenanced; and therefore from the beginning of this jurisdiction there was always a limitation to suits in this court.
Seite 80 - That general warrants, whereby an officer or messenger may be commanded to search suspected places without evidence of a fact committed, or to seize any person or persons not named, or whose offence is not particularly described and supported by evidence, are grievous and oppressive, and ought not to be granted.
Seite 309 - ... the Subject-matter, as by the known usage of trade, or the like, acquired a peculiar sense distinct from the popular sense of the same words...
Seite 184 - ... it must be admitted, as a necessary consequence, that there can be no limitation of that authority, which is to provide for the defence and protection of the community, in any matter essential to its efficacy ; that is, in any matter essential to the formation, direction, or support of the national forces.
Seite 271 - A court of equity which is never active in relief against conscience or public convenience has always refused its aid to stale demands where the party has slept upon his rights and acquiesced for a great length of time. Nothing can call forth this court into activity but conscience, good faith and reasonable diligence. When these are wanting the court is passive and does nothing.
Seite 412 - Upon the point of the refusal of the court to set aside the verdict, on the ground that the damages were excessive...
Seite 250 - The assignment of error which relates to the refusal of the court to set aside the verdict and award a new trial is without merit.
Seite 88 - If the defendant be under an obligation, from the ties of natural justice, to refund; the law implies a debt, and gives this action, founded in the equity of the plaintiff's case, as it were upon a contract ('quasi ex contractu,') as the Roman law expresses it.
Seite 254 - Whether a party is guilty of negligence, or not, is a question of fact for the jury, and not a question of law for the court to decide, when the evidence tends to establish such negligence.
Seite 385 - If granted for public purposes exclusively, they belong to the corporate body in its public, political, or municipal character. But if the grant was for purposes of private advantage and emolument, though the public may derive a common benefit therefrom, the corporation, quoad hoc, is to be regarded as a private company. It stands on the same footing as would any individual or body of persons upon whom the like special franchises had been conferred.
