Uarclay," J- X ; : Be(t�Jtd.�iect, Covetit-KJttiJrrt, n On the motion of the Attornev General, the House went'into a Committee on the Witnesses Liability Bill. The MASTER of the ROLLS complained,' that while tlic Bill pretended to be only declaratory, it in reality enafled very largely and vtry illegally. Tlie opinion which the majority of the certainly expressed, but expressed with much limitation and qualification, was generally, and withour exeeptir-n, established as law by the Bill as it stood. He wished to guard against this excess, by allowing the witness to'objeft, -and tlie Judge to allow the objeflion, in all cases in which a defendant to a bill in equity would not be bound to answer. ' ].i allowing to a Court of Common Law the same powers over wir-nesses.that a Court of Equity had over defendants, he did not wish to make those powers compulsory, without the exceptions allowed in equity. He there, fore moved a proviso, by which the witness should be allowed to plead an exception to the rule laid down in the Bill, in all cases where such an exccp. tion would be allowed in a Court of Equity ; and that the judges should be at lilTcrty to allow that exception in the same mannner as if thfs Ad did not exist. ' ' .The SOLICITOR GENERAL had always less confidence in his own opinion, when it d.ftered from that of his Hon. and Learned B'rieiui; but if this prov.lsowere to pass, it would go to the establishment of a new principle unknown to the law of England, that of regulating the rules of evi.lence in the Courts of Law by the practice of a Court �f Equity." 'f he rules of evidence in common law were prescribed by nostatutt; they,iiros'eout ot t!ieconi. monlaw itself, and wtjreip many, an.l ihi;se the important, points coeval ufrith it. The doarines ol equity were comparatively modern. Though the fill! was necessary, it was better it should not pass, that! to pa^s clogged with this proviso. It was true a Courtof Equity would not compel a defendant to any thii.g that mayHnvalidate his title, in case of putchase, for a valuable consideration with.; ,out notice; but the general rule of equity was,, that; no man could refuse aiiswcring on the ground that the answer might involve him in civil suits.! ,Thd judges at Com.r.on Law wct� often called on to'-ile-citlc nice points incidentally, and on the inomcnt^inii Jie thought i,t wrong to shackle them'\with rcfcjfonces to tlie praitico* of a Court of,Equity. He' allowei> 'there exVcptitins to the rule,^ut.the BillJKd not take tbc/nnway. 7')\e cliiliae >i'ki5".tmrtel ccHSBty, au4 inconsistent wiih'the spititfof the hiWoT �Enjjlund.-V- � vr,.vf..- 5I. was allowed to be a g'jodconsidi to answer^ Why then should not a- witness be exempted from admissions thiit may involve-the^nihi. lationofiiis.propi-TJy ? It may be said, the interests ' of justice required .tlie admissions enjoined by the , Bill J but the interests of justice required equ lily the ' confession, of a. .'murderer called as a 'witness against a person filsely accused ot the crime, of vvho e itmo-cence this confe-aion would, be the hillesl testimony.' Yet this confi'ssion was nat i;cqulri}.� Ii was not the. interest of justice that was in qurstton ; but the\ proteflion yllowcd by the law lor the security of the subject. In every other country a uci)t tn.:y he without any evidence to the oath of the' j'.cr-son in charge. Tn thisoar.try that c u'd not be done. The principlo ai'ii tiie train ofcjiKi'iirgaiK n it involved were e.irly got rid ot by our Ciniit!.- Formerly every AcTtthvit gave rise co a civil avV.on involved a penairy to the Crown ; lur withholding the just demand in cases of civil aiiioi) ; a'nd Ibr tl.e : offence n un, of the great law authorities, that witnc4scs Avc^e bound to answer withoutrespeil to civil >wit,s. ^awj, that sogreat a law -.luthority had questimjed-^eoj^-nion of the Judges, it must; ajipear to ,a{l.ij�rtjciil.t^ ly necessary to settle the point in quCsUoq..". ^ Mr. PERCIVAL wassure it was iateiVi�d;by tlj.e Judges tdmake e.>c(Jfptionsro tlie general Tujeihcy hail laid down.
