(1) A record or judgment unreversed;

(2) The proper conduct of courts and judicial officers acting within their legitimate spheres;

(3) The proper conduct of other officers of the law after the lapse of time has rendered it dangerous to open the investigation of their acts in regard to mere formalities of the law;

(4) Ancient deeds and other instruments more than 30 years old, when they come from proper custody and possession has been held in accordance with them;

(7) Solemn admissions made in judicio;
