Seite 411 - The jurisdiction of the nation within its own territory is necessarily exclusive and absolute. It is susceptible of no limitation not imposed by itself. Any restriction upon it, deriving validity from an external source, would imply a diminution of its sovereignty to the extent of the restriction, and an investment of that sovereignty to the same extent in that power which could impose such restriction.
Seite 414 - English law particularly it is held an excuse for breaches of the peace, nay, even for homicide itself: but care must be taken that the resistance does not exceed the bounds of mere defence and prevention: for then the defender would himself become an aggressor.
Seite 396 - But discretion, when applied to a court of justice, means sound discretion guided by law. It must be governed by rule, not by humor; it must not be arbitrary, vague, and fanciful; but legal and regular.
Seite 286 - The general rule of law is clear and not disputed, viz. that money paid under a mistake of facts may be recovered back, as being paid without consideration." In the latter case the court do not deny the rule, nor that it would apply to the case before them. But to enforce it they require an almost impracticable diligence. I doubt whether this case can be sustained, except upon its own peculiar circumstances, if it can be sustained at all.
Seite 296 - Now, upon the facts proved, it was urged on the part of the plaintiff, that the case should have been submitted to the jury, on the question as to whether there was evidence of the scienter.
Seite 133 - ... and if judgment is rendered against him before that is done, the proceeding will be as utterly void as though the court had undertaken to act where the subject matter was not within its cognizance.
Seite 397 - ... allege any fact to show either that his imprisonment or detention is unlawful, or that he is entitled to his discharge.
Seite 378 - States, are these: that the transaction on account of which McLeod has been arrested and is to be put upon his trial, was a transaction of a public character, planned and executed by persons duly empowered by her Majesty's colonial authorities to take any steps and to do any acts which might be necessary for the defense of her Majesty's territories, and for the protection of her Majesty's subjects...
Seite 326 - I take the effect of repealing a statute to be, to obliterate it as completely from the records of the Parliament as if it had never passed; and it must be considered as a law that never existed, except for the purpose of those actions which were commenced, prosecuted, and concluded, whilst it was an existing law.
Seite 284 - The conduct of both was bonafidc, and the negligence or rather misfortune of both the same. It was the duty, or, more properly, a measure of prudence, in each to have inquired into the forgery, •which both omitted. But this raises no preference at law or equity in favor of the defendants, but against them. They have obtained the plaintiffs' money without consideration ; not as a gift, but under a mistake.
