With this understood, nothing like resistance or a hesitation to obey was ever for a moment experienced. When the commission of this court was first presented to the bar, the all-embracing comprehonsiveness of its jurisdiction, as to the cases and questions which it was authorized to entertain, and the omnipotence of its judgments, terminating without appeal the rights of the parties in all cases, attracted attention and remark.
