c. 112, § 36; 6 Geo. IV. c. 120, § 45—Process—In a petition
for interdict against the cutting off of any water-courses
leading to the petitioner's works, the sheriff, in the same
interlocutor, recalled the interdict previously granted with
regard to one of these, and assoilzied; but, as regarded an-
other, ordered minutes of debate—whereupon the petitioner
applied for leave to advocate the interlocutor under the pro-
visions of the statute 50 Geo. III. c. 112, $ 36. The Lord
Ordinary having sustained the sheriff's judgment, the peti.
tioner reclaimed; and it being objected, that as this was an
advocation of an interlocutory judgment, the Lord Ordinary's
decision was final: Circumstances in which-Held, that
the judgment quoad the water-course, as to which interdict
had been refused, was a final judgment, and the Lord Ordi.
nary's interlocutor competently submitted to review ; but,
before pronouncing on the merits, remit made to the sheriff
to decide the whole cause. Macfie v. Provost and Magistrates
of Greenock, 15th June 1850, p. 454.

AGREEMENT—See Bill of Exchange. Pactum Illicitum. Per.

- Clause--Construction--A landowner made an agreement
with an iron-foundry company containing the following
clause :-“ And further, the said J. C. hereby grants to the
said company and their foresaids the command of all the
water on the lands of O., and on any of the neighbouring
proprietors' lands which the said company may think proper
to lead through the lands of 0., in such way and manner as
they or their foresaids may think most proper for the use
of the works, that either now are, or hereafter may be, carried
on by them at M., and that either in making dams, water,
leads, or otherwise, which they, their heirs or assignees, shall
have as full power to do as the said J. C. might have done
before entering into these presents, and that at any time
during the space of 999 years from and after Whitsunday
1787 years." --Held that the company were entitled to use
this water-course as a canal for the carriage of minerals to
their works, and to make a towing-path along its banks for
that purpose. Swan's Trustees v. Muirkirk Iron Company,
1st Feb. 1850, p. 205.

- Contract-Construction-A glazier received an order
to glaze window-sashes before the duty on glass was taken
off. It was admitted that the rate of payment in view of the
contracting parties was the market rate. While the window-
sashes were in the glazier's hands, the duty was abolished,
and a drawback allowed upon unused stock on hand. The
glazier refrained from glazing the window-sashes till he had
received payment of the drawback on the glass employed by
him for that purpose. Held that he was entitled to charge
his employer according to the market rate at the time of
contracting, without allowing any deduction on account of
the drawback: and that the exact time when the glass was
put into the sashes was immaterial to the question at issue.
Malloch v. Hodghton, 28th Nov. 1849, p. 33.

- Mandate-Sale—The holder of scrip for fifteen railway
shares instructed his broker, on 31 March, to sell them next
day at the highest market rate, “ if the market was languid
and not likely to go up." The broker sold on 4th March at
17s. 6d. premium, subject to the approval of his employer,
to whom the sale was intimated. Before receiving the scrip.
holder's answer to this intimation, the broker cancelled the
bargain, and concluded a new sale on the same day, to the
same purchaser, at 20s. premium-that being shewn by the
evidence to have been the highest market rate at that hour
of the day, without any likelihood of a farther rise. The
stock, however, did rise in value that evening, and for some
months following. The scripholder having repudiated the
transaction, and refused to deliver up his scrip so as to en-
able the broker to fulfil his bargain with the purchaser-Held
that the conditional sale at 178. 6d. did not exhaust the
broker's mandate; but that the unconditional sale at 20%.
was covered by it, and was therefore binding on the scrip
holder. Henderson v. Dickson, 5th Dec. 1849, p. 57.

AGREEMENT-Non-Implement-Damages —A broker sold

fifteen shares of railway stock on 4th March. His employer
wrongfully failed to deliver his scrip so as to enable him to fulfil
his bargain with the purchaser. On 9th July, following, the
purchaser bought, at the then existing market rate, fifteen
shares of the same stock, which had greatly risen in value
during the interval, and debited the broker with the differ-
ence. The broker having paid it-Held that the full sum
so paid by him was the proper measure of damage as between

him and his employer- the purchaser having refrained from
**buying in” at an earlier period (when the stock might have
been obtained at a lower rate) at the request of the broker,
who had been induced to rely on his employer's proposals

for a compromise, Henderson v. Dickson, 5th Dec. 1849, p. 57.

rant, than the said” company, bound for the debt-Repelled,

sent to 'trial was, whether there had been a total loss, and on whether the insured value was due to the pursuers. The

pursuers had a verdict, with leave to enter it up for the deJu fenders if the Court should decide that the pursuers were

barred from recovering as for a total loss, in consequence of Ji abandonment having been necessary, and not having been

made in due time, or of the pursuers having elected to treat

the case as one of partial loss. The Court entered up the Hverdict for the defenders. Opinion, That, by doing so, they De not only held the pursuers barred from recovery, but also b that they thereby decided that no total loss had taken place.
