Sin?It in with grunt pleasure I respond to your cull for any information in my power respecting the institution of " Conciliation Courts" iu my country, established for the first time iu his majesty's Wet India possessions. by an urdinancu of Murrli I, 1766, uud afterwards iu Denmark proper, by un ordinance of July 10th. 1706. in Norwuy by uri ordinance of Jauuary 30th 1707. and in bis majesty's West India possersious. on the new plan, by an ordinance of Dec. 7. 179b As a striking evidence of its usefulness, I feel happy in belug able to state from the Oortmmtnl [nlrlligtnctr of December 13th. 1?4.>. iu uiy possesssion. that by official reports to the Hoard of Justice for the years 1043 uud 1844. it appears that in the year IS43 the number of cuses brought before the conciliation courts in Deumaik proper, amounted to 31.33H. of which 31,613 were settled, 309 positioned, and 0.637 referred to the courts of law. of whlon. however, hut 3 HI7 wen- actually prosecuted by writs; and that iu IB14 the number of such cares amount,d to 33.014, of which 16,334 were settled. 37ti postponed uud 7 104 refurred to the courts of law, of which, likewise, but a coin paritlvely small uuuiber. (say 3460) were actually prosecuted at law; thus presenting the gratifying result, that out of 31.338 for the year 1813. b it 3,617, and of 33.094 for the year 1044, but 3,469became suits at law. ISt reports to the same effect from His Mujesly's West India possession* for the year 1H43. the result is equally gratifying. inasmuch as out of 733 cases 633 were settled, and ouly 191 referred to the courts of law, of which but tB became actual suit* at law. The great principle laid down with us for the institution in question is that no oourls of lnw shall take cognizance of any private civil suit whatever, unless the same shall haro been duly tried before the competent court of conciliation and, in failure of u Settlement, thence referred for further prosecution at law It is therefore not optional with the parties to a suit of this kiud. to avail themselves of the above institution or not at their pleasure; but it is an imperative dut^?an absolute requirement?from which there is no dispensation. From the above principle it follows, as a natural consequence, that the subject matter of any suit at law of this description must lie identical witli UM case submitted to the Court of Conciliation, inasmuch as nothing cau be adjudicated but what has bceu duly tried at conciliation. with the exception of cost and Interest from the day of entering suit, as the law may direct. If, therefore, a certain specification be required by law in the writ, the sumo ought, from prudential luolivus at least, to bo udopted in the up- plication to tlio Court of Conciliation. With ft TIHW tn fn nilit II t A lllao/ * Ivnai. oolieta ?n,l to simplify their proceedings. it lies been deemed expedient by the Danish laws, tn admit even verbal applications; and. in the summons to the parties, they actually dispense with any specification at all beyond the mere uamci of the parties, leaving it to the commissioners, in ease of failure of a settlement, to specify the case In their certificate of reference. Considering, however, the importance of giving to the aaid specification the full extent of ground which the eventual suit at law is intended to cover, the plaintiff will, in most cases of importance and difficulty, find It his interest to huve his application drawn up in writing by a professional lawyer; and this bus accordingly become the common practice with us iu such eases, serving a copy thereof on the defendant, and receiving on the original. the reference to the commissioners, in case of failure of a compromise. Said written application may also very conveniently serve as a voucher iu confirmation or explanation of any compromise that luuy result from the proceedings had. With regard to cases entitled by law to a more summary proceeding than is generally admitted in the ordinary eourse of law, and wnere a trial at conciliation before some other court would naturally involve a delay inconsistent with the despatch originally eoutemplutcd. this duty has with us been assignud to the respective judges having jurisdiction in the matter, before allowing legal proceedings to coiumenco. Of this description are, with us, all cases coming within tlie jurisdiction of police courts, marine courts, courts for the settlement of petty debts, and ordinary courts of law. where a summary mode of proceeding may have been authorised by law. with a view to the nature uf the case ; us in the Distance of a claim by bill of exchange, or the position ot the parties, where one or the other of them may be s sojourner only. A similar dxception flrorn the rule, hut from other considerations, lias been made in favor of proceedings before the orphan's court. The main object of tlie Rbovu institution being a flnsl settlement of tiny subsisting controversy between the parties to it, without recourse to vexatious, long protracted and exjieusive law proceedings, it becomes indispensably necessary for its attainment that any compromise so entered into and concluded by the parlies should be rendered equally conclusive with a decision of the Supreme Court, both as regards irreversibility by appeal, and promptness of execution by the Sheriff There is. no doubt, something very startling iu tills proposition ut the first glance, inasmuch as the Commissioners thereby seem to be invested with a power, apparently too inoustrous to Ire wielded by any authority in the country Iokb than that of the Supreme (,'ourt; but. on a closer inspection, I presume the alarm will in a great measure subside, even with the opponents to the whole scheme, wliaa it is considered that it iuvolvea no question of jurisdiction with tlia Commissioners?no right to enter Into anj legal investigation of the mutter beioro them?nor pown io puss juuguieni on wie parxn rt. wim or wiinout iueu consent. The whole action of the Commissioners Is !i flirt limited to a mere mediation between the parties without any other power or Intluence over them thai what their weight of character is ralculnted to give and. if successful, the parties themselves become the ne tors; they make the compromise, and they sign the bond while the Commissioners are merely acting us wituessei to the deed; and when a contract is entered into nmJ concluded by competent persons, under such eirruin stances. It is. by itself, clearly of a validity not to be sel aside by any courts of law, and might, therefore, witli great propriety be left to stand upon its ground, without requiring judicial intervention for its execution by legal authority The above system msy Le adopted upon a greater or smaller scale; (t may embrace the whole State or It nmy lie confined to particular cities or counties, accordingly as these communities may desire its establishment or not. llut to the extent it shall be adopted, it must, of necessity, la- full ami romprelienslve In its operation to answer the object of its institution In my country it tins had a fair trial; it has been in operation, as above stated, throughout the whole conntry. for more than half a century, and has proved itself highly beneficial to the community ; but whether it will meet with the same favor in this country, when so introduced. or lie equally successful in Its operation, may he a matter of doubt, considering the great disparity existing Itclwcen the two countries, both as regards the form of their governments and the character of their people?a difference which may have an important hearing upon the i|Uestion at issue. The system is. in itself, not without its practical dlfflcul #s, requiring, as it were, somo independent agency f.,r their adjustment, which office has been very beneficially exercised with us by the General Board of Justice, ami by the high sheriff of the country, llut your government is differently organized, and presents no su> h salutary aid or supervision, and will hardly ndmit of a substitute therefor. The people of Ibis country e?cm, moreover, to be over jealous of any lnterfW^edca with the management of what they are dfjposed to cull their own affairs, aud cannot, be supposed to look upon the above Institution with as much favor as \t really deserves at their bands, f appreheud.ou the contrary, that they wil.flnd their personal appeal nin e before the Commissioners within closed doors, and the discussion of their conduct in the special matter before them. In favor of a compromise on the score of expediency, both in a legsl and moral point of view, to tie an interference with thoir independence?a mastery over them to whirl they will not willingly submit; pretending, ul the saup time, that a compromise without it Is within their reach through their attorneys. If they choose to adopt It; for getting, however, thill the main \ ill a will Is- wanting viz: the executive wiirriiut to carry il into effect.

Inasmuch as a meeting of the parties heft)re Impartial men, in most eases will turn out to l? a considerable step towards an actual compromise I have aboyti alluded to an abuse to which till* institution is exposed ill registering new contracts lusti ndof settling existing controversies. 'I ills abuse, so referred to. may no doubt be harmless, and even beneficial In plain and simple run s. bearing upon a single point, and being, tints far. as it were by anticipation, oti it par with Issues at law in general But if not carefully checker! or declined by the commissioners, such Indulgences mny. In more complicated ease's, ami those of longer standing, lend to diOlouUIvs and embarrassment* not easily overcome ov solved in the sequel. The sueeess of an Institution of litis kind, is altogether dependent upon | the character of the commissioners to whom ibe mediation shall bo committed The community, cannot, I therefore, be too e,ireful in their selection Ability and *enl combined wl Ih honesty bf purpose, and weight of character with tho community, to ci^uiaud respect and confidence with parties, nro t'?< most prominent qualities required.
