COMPENSATION, chancery practice. The performance of that which a court of
chancery orders to be done on relieving a party who has broken a condition,
which is to place the opposite party in no worse situation than if the
condition had not been broken.

condition, unless compensation can be made to the opposite party. Fonb. c.

3. When a simple mistake, not a fraud, affects a contract, but does not
change its essence, a court of equity will enforce it, upon making
compensation for the error, The principle upon which courts of equity act,"
says Lord Chancellor Eldon, "is by all the authorities brought to the true
standard, that though the party had not a title at law, because he had not
strictly complied with the terms so as to entitle him to an action, (as to
time for instance,) yet if the time, though introduced, as some time must be
fixed, where something is to be done on one side, as a consideration for
something to be done on the other, is not the essence of the contract; a
material object, to which they looked in the first conception of it, even
though the lapse of time has not arisen from accident, a court of equity
will compel the execution of the contract upon this ground, that one party
is ready to perform, and that the other ma, have performance in substance if
he will permit it." 13 Ves. 287. See 10 Ves. 505; 13 Ves. 73, 81, 426; 6
Ves. 675; 1 Cox, 59.

tit. 214, Pl. 1; Clarke's Prax. tit. 115; Shelf. on Mar. & Div. 439; 1 Hagg.
Cons. R. 148. See Condonation; Divorce.


COMPENSATION, remedies. The damages recovered for an injury, or the
violation of a contract.. See Damages.


COMPENSATION, contracts. A reward for services rendered.


COMPENSATION, contracts, civil law. When two persons are equally indebted to
each other, there takes place a compensation between them, which
extinguishes both debts. Compensation is, therefore, a reciprocal liberation
between two persons who are creditors and debtors to each other, which
liberation takes place instead of payment, and prevents a circuity. Or it
may be more briefly defined as follows; compensatio est debiti et crediti
intter se contributio.
2. Compensation takes places, of course, by the mere operation of law,
even unknown to the debtors the two debts are reciprocally extinguished, as
soon as they exist simultaneously, to the, amount of their respective sums.
Compensation takes place only between two debts, having equally for their
object a sum of money, or a certain quantity of consumable things of one and
the same kind, and which are equally liquidated and demandable. Compensation
takes place, whatever be the cause of either of the debts, except in case,
1st. of a demand of restitution of a thing of which the owner has been
unjustly deprived; 2d. of a demand of restitution of a deposit and a loan
for use; 3d. of a debt which has for its cause, aliments declared not liable
to seizure. Civil Code of. Louis. 2203 to 2208. Compensation is of three
kinds: 1. legal or by operation of law; 2. compensation by way of exception;
and, 3. by reconvention. 8 L. R. 158; Dig. lib. 16, t. 2; Code, lib. 4, t.
31; Inst. lib. 4, t' 6, s. 30; Poth. Obl. partie. 3eme, ch. 4eme, n. 623;
Burge on Sur., Book 2, c. 6, p. 181.
3. Compensation very nearly resembles the set-off (q.v.) of the common
law. The principal difference is this, that a set-off, to have any effect,
must be pleaded; whereas compensation is effectual without any such plea,
only the balance is a debt. 2 Bouv. Inst. n. 1407.
