LONDON, OCTOBER 7, 1854.

We resume the subject of injunctions, for the purpose of stating practical propositions, supported by authorities*. And, first, as to injunctions to stay proceedings at law, when the prosecution of the action would be inequitable.

If a party is proceeding at law on a bond or other legal instrument obtained by fraud, or by means of any inequitable transaction, a Court of equity will in general interfere by injunction. (Talleyrand v. Boulanger, 3 Ves. 447; Jervis v. White, 7 Ves. 413; Hodgson v. Murray, 2 Sim. 515; and see 3 Sim. 283).

Where, however, by the facts in evidence, dehors the instrument itself, it does not appear that the holder had knowledge of the illegal origin of a bill, he will not be restrained from proceeding on it at law. (Dunbar v. Wilson, 6 Bro. P. C. 231).

An injunction may be also granted to restrain proceeding under an agreement founded on a fraudulent representation. (Lovell v. Hicks, 2 Y. & C. 46).

Before the 5 & 6 Will. 4, c. 41, bills and notes given in respect of a gambling transaction were, by * These propositions are extracted from Mr. Drewry's Treatise on the Law and Practice of Injunctions. Sweet. M M

and to decree repayment, if money had been paid under them; (Rawden v. Shadwell, Amb. 269); or to restrain proceedings at law, and to have them delivered up to be cancelled. (Newman v. Franco, 2 Anst. 519; Andrews v. Berry, 3 Anst. 634).

But because equity has this jurisdiction, it does not follow that it will always interfere against a bill given for a gambling transaction. In general, in the cases in which a Court of equity has interfered, it has been necessary for the plaintiff to come into that court for discovery, and for the purpose of connecting the instrument in question with the transaction on which its illegality is founded; and then, if the circumstances are suspicious, equity will restrain proceedings at law on the instrument till they are better explained. (Lord Portarlington v. Soulby, 3 My. & K. 104; Wynne v. Jackson, 2 Russ. 351; but see Wilkinson v. L'Eaugier, 2 Y. & C. 363).

If the illegality appears at law, the Court will not interfere. (Graves v. Houlditch, 2 Price, 147).

The law has received a material alteration as to bills and notes given in consideration of gaming transactions, by the 5 & 6 Will. 4, c. 41, which repeals the provision above referred to of the 9 Ann. c. 14, s. 1, and enacts, that such bills and notes, instead of being absolutely void, shall be deemed and taken to have been made, drawn, accepted, given, or executed for an illegal consideration.

Where a person takes a bill drawn in the name of a firm by one of the partners, who by the partnership articles is expressly restricted from drawing bills in the name of the firm, and the holder fails to prove that it has been represented to him that the bill was the bill of the firm, he will be ordered to deliver it up. (Newman v. Milner, 2 Ves. jun. 483). And where an

TST

executor holds promissory notes made to him as executor, and shewing that fact upon the face of them, a party who takes those notes, in a transaction inconsistent with the due administration of the testator's assets, renders himself liable to the consequences of the devastavit. (Downes v. Power, 2 Ball & B. 491; but see Esdaile v. La Nauge, 1 Y. & C. 394).

Where several persons become sureties for a sum of money, each in a separate bond for his proportional share of such sum, there will be a liability between them as sureties, even against the intention of the parties. (Dering v. Lord Winchelsea, 1 Cox, 318; and see, per Lord Eldon, Turn. & R. 429). But if the transaction is such as to shew that each is a surety by a distinct and separate transaction, and that it is not in fact the same transaction split into different parts, one of the sureties, who has executed his security, is bound, although another of the intended sureties may not have executed his; and the Court will not interfere to restrain the obligor from proceeding on that one of the separate securities which has been executed. (Coope v. Twynam, Turn. & R. 426).

In Jervis v. White and Hodgson v. Murray (supra) the jurisdiction of the Court was called in question. On this point, viz. the jurisdiction of equity to interfere against instruments which cannot be proceeded upon at law, there is this distinction to be observed where the illegality appears by the instrument itself, and where it depends on evidence dehors the instrument. (See on this Colman v. Sarrel, 1 Ves. sen. 50; see p.51; Franco v. Bolton, 3 Ves. 368; Ryan v. Mackmath, 3 Bro. C. C. 15; Thrale v. Ross, Id. 57; Minshaw v. Jordan, Id. 16, note ‡; and Lisle v. Liddle, 3 Anst. 649).

It is now well settled by a great preponderance of modern authorities, that where the illegality of an instrument does not appear by the instrument itself, but depends on evidence dehors, equity will interfere by injunction, and, if necessary, by ordering the instrument to be delivered up to be cancelled. (Byne v. Vivian, 5 Ves. 604; Byne v. Potter, Id. 609; Bromley v. Holland, Id. 610; 7 Ves. 3; and see pp. 16 to 22. See also Hayward v. Dimsdale, 17 Ves. 111, and the observations of Sir J. Leach, M. R., in Grover v. Hugell, 3 Russ. 432; Jones v. Lane, 3 Y. & C. 281).

But that equity will not interfere, where the illegality appears on the face of the instrument, was decided in Gray v. Mathias, (5 Ves. 286), by the whole Court of Exchequer, on a bond appearing on the face of it to have been given pro turpi causa; and the rule has since been confirmed, on great consideration, by Lord Cottenham, C., in a case in which all the authorities were most elaborately analysed by his Lordship. (Simpson v. Lord Howden, 3 My. & C. 97; and see also Jones v. Lane, 3 Y. & C. 294).

But it is necessary, in order to justify the interference of equity, that two incidents should co-existwrongful possession of the instrument, and the resting of the defence at law on circumstances the proof of which is dehors the instrument, and liable to be lost. (Jones v. Lane, 3 Y. & C. 281; Colombies or Columbier v. Slim, cited by the Court in Jones v. Lane, Id. 294).

The Court will open a solicitor's bill after security given, and even after payment, if the client can point out in the bill gross errors, and charges amounting to imposition and fraud; but if nothing can be made out against the solicitor but a trifling inaccuracy, and no fraud, imposition, or material error is established, proceedings at law, upon a bond given by the client, will not be restrained merely because business was still going on when it was given. (Cook v. Setree, 1 V. & B. 126).
