LAW REPORT.
JUDICIAL COMMITTEE OF THE PRIVY COUNCIL, Nov. 20.
(Present - Sir J. Colville, Sir B. Peacock, Sir Montague Smith, Sir R. Collier, and Sir L. Peel.)
DES BARRES AND ANOTHER v. SHEY.
  This appeal, from Nova Scotia, which had been before the Court on three previous days, was now concluded upon the argument. It was an ex parte appeal from a judgment of the Supreme Court at Halifax, Nova Scotia, dated the 29th of July, 1871, discharging, with costs, a rule nisi for a new trial in an action of ejectment brought by the appellants.   Mr. Field, Q.C., and Mr. M. Chambers were heard in support of the application.   Their Lordships reserved judgment.
