The court formed by the English judicature act, 1873, (as modified by the judicature act, 1875, the appellate jurisdiction act, 1876, and the judicature acts of 1877, 1879, and 1SS1,) in substitution for the various superior courts of law, equity, admiralty, pro- bate. and divorce, existing when tbe act was passed, including the court of appeal in chancery and bankruptcy, and the exchequer chamber. It consists of two permanent di- visions, viz., a court of original jurisdiction, called the “high court of justice,” and a court of appellate jurisdiction, called the “court of-appeal.” Its title of “supreme” is now a misnomer, as the superior appellate jurisdiction of the house of lords and privy council, which was originally intended to be transferred to it, has been allowed to remain. Sweet.
