By the laws in force relating to bankrupts, the lord chancellor is authorised to issue com. missions under the great seal, and to name, assign, and appoint commissioners. The practice under this authority has been, the nomination by the lord chancellor of a number of persons (now seventy), with directions for the insertion by rotation of five of the persons so nominated, in each commission to be executed in London. Four lists of five each were nominated in 1796, with directions for one of the four to be inserted in each of such commissions, as should be executed at or within twenty miles of Birmingham; but the vacancies which have occurred in such lists have not since been filled up. All other commissions, to be executed more than forty miles from London, are directed to persons nominated by or on the behalf of each petitioning creditor ; each commissioner deriving authority from the particular commission issued to him, and no further. The commissioners for each list for London commissions are now as under stated :
8. William Welfitt,
