1872. COURTS OF CHANCERY, Common Law and.—[continued].

It has often been predicted

swallow up the Common Law. During many
centuries, however, that these two courts
have gone on together, the jurisdiction of
the Common Law has not been narrowed in
a single article; on the contrary, it has been
enlarged from time to time by act of the
Legislature; but jealousy, uncorrected by
reason or experience, sees certainty wherever
there is a possibility, and sensible men still
think that the danger from this court overweighs
its utility.—
