Excerpt from Notes on Practice, Exhibiting a View of the Proceedings in Civil Actions, in the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania,& in the District Court,& Court of Common Pleas, for the City County of Philadelphia, 1825 As the title page of this work promises a view of the practice in the Common Pleas of this county, We shall avail ourselves of this opportunity to state in what de gree this has not been performed. Much of its practice and jurisdiction remains to be considered under the head of Proceedings by and against Particular Persons; as in the cases of idiots; lunatics; habitual drunkards; in proceedings against assignees; aldermen; justices of the peace; and constables. The practice on the insol Vent side of this court has been accurately sketched in Mr. Ingraham's work. With regard to the Orphans' and Register's Court, the student will find a pleasing introduction to their practice in Mr. Gordon's Law of Decedents.
