Strana 234 - If a day be appointed for payment of money, or part of it, or for doing any other act, and the day is to happen, or may happen, before the thing which is the consideration of the money, or other act, is to be performed, an action may be brought for the money, or for not doing such other act before performance; for it appears that the party relied upon his remedy, and did not intend to make the performance a condition precedent...
Strana 235 - Where a covenant goes only to part of the consideration on both sides, and a breach of such covenant may be paid for in damages, it is an independent covenant, and an action may be maintained for a breach of the covenant on the part of the defendant, without averring performance in the declaration.
Strana 59 - the principles and rules of the common law, as now universally known and understood, are so strong against fraud in every shape, that the common law would have attained every end proposed by the statutes 13 Eliz. c. 5, and 27 Eliz. c. 4. The former of these statutes relates to creditors only : the latter to purchasers. These statutes cannot receive too liberal a construction, or be too much extended in suppression of fraud.
Strana 12 - Defendant afterwards, under leave, reserved at the trial, moved for and obtained a rule to show cause why the verdict should not be set aside...
Strana 235 - Where two acts are to be done at the same time, as where A covenants to convey an estate to B on such a day, and in consideration thereof B covenants to pay A a sum of money on the same day, neither can maintain an action without...

Twenty years...
Strana 133 - Grey, the chief justice, had declared it to be his opinion, that such estates being of inheritance, which he thought British subjects might hold in Calcutta, were not assets in the hands of an executor or administrator for the payment of debts, and that if liable for the debts of the deceased at all, they were liable in the hands Of the heir, who was the person to be sued, and not the executor or administrator.
Strana 61 - though he had hardly known one case, where the person conveying was indebted at the time...
Strana 158 - It has been contended, also, that, if such a power be really granted to the orphan's' court, it is unconstitutional, because the right to a jury is secured by that instrument to each individual of the community. To this I answer: The Constitution does not extend the right to a trial by jury to cases which did not fall within its province before the existence of that charter. The chancery, prerogative, and spiritual courts have always proceeded without the intervention of a jury; and the orphans...
Strana 249 - That to the court of King's Bench belongs authority, not only to correct errors in judicial proceedings, but other errors and misdemeanors extrajudicial, tending to the breach of peace, oppression of subjects, or to the raising of faction, controversies, debate, or to any manner of misgovernment.
