RESIDENT MAGISTRATE'S CO URT.

[Before L. Bkoad, Esq., R.M.] Hyland v. William Adams. The following are the leading features of this case as given io evidence yesterday.-— About fifteen years ago the plaintiff verbally leased the section for which the rent is claimed to the defendant at a rental of £5 per aouum. The rent was regularly paid up to the month of June, 1872, when the defendant refused to pay anything further, alleging aa a reason that the plaintiff being the executor under the will of the late David Jeifers, who was the owner of the section, had no right to receive the money, and if he paid him he might at any time be called upon by Jeiter's heir-at-law to again pay the amount. It was argued for the plaintiff that as Mr Adams had obtained possession from Hyland had paid him rent, and was vow still in possession, it was not open for him to dispute his landlord's title, and that at the time the lease was granted the defendant was acting as the plaintiff's solicitor, and knew the whole facts of the case and what title he had. Several authorities were quoted, and after argument his Worship reserved judgment. Mr Bunny appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr Acton Adams for the defendant.
