Essentially just, as well as imperative, as is the present demand for a searching and extensive reform in our methods of judicial procedure, it is unquestionably attended with the same danger which always accompanies the course of reformation when it has been unwisely resisted, or unduly delayed?the danger of ill-considered and ill-directed change. That the machinery of our present superior courts is too cumbrous, dilatory and expensive, is unquestionably true; it is true also, that an endeavour should be made to have the administration of justice effected with the greatest degree of cheapness and expedition, provided that, in the pursuit of these objects, others equally essential be not sacrificed or impaired.
