. f FREHCH PEPPLE THI.K OF IT.
-The Marvelous Art of Oratory— Grand

the Bernhardt — '
\ .Paris, June 27," 1880.
The most important and exciting event
of the .week has . been : the remarkable
■ speech ;by Gambetta before the .Chamber .
respecting 1 amnesty, fi This . resolution ; of
'.' Gambetta'' to speak before the House was
unknown to his most : intimate friends."
It was in all probability an impulse "of the
moment, and as it jis the first time since
the famous orator has occupied the Presi
r dential chair that he has taken : part in- the
debate, the circumstance has proved most
significant. Since two years : the voice of
Gambetta has been heard nowhere except
when accompanying the bell in his hand
used to bring his noisy comrades to order,
so that the thoughts seething in his brain'
must hate long since been preparing to ex
- plode. \■: This speech was t unexpected by
everyone, for the boxes arid tribunes ; con
' tamed fewer persons than usual. '•: I was pres
ent three days before when the house .was
crowded, for it was ; whispered "that
on that occasion ; Paul ".; de Cassagnac
would make an interpellation to the Gov
ernment in regard to the nomination of
•Chalemel; Lacouras Embassador to Lon
don," when there would ensue a great scan
dal. Although evidences of a rising storm
appeared here and there during the seance,
things calmed down each time, and nothing
•of much excitement occurred. Those who
. were present later had reason to congratu
late themselves on their good fortune, for
the impression (produced by Gambetta's
speech was immense. - Both his friends and
enemies declare ( that ; he ; may have been
-equaled by the great orators of history, but
they do not believe he has j ever , been sur
passed. Not since the days of Mirabcau
has anything similar been heard. Paul de
Cassagnac was making a rambling speech,
when Gambetta invited Mr. Brisson, the
Vice-President of the Chancer, to take his
seat, and ' . •'.;,- ~i" :
descending the stem
Seated, himself on the first bench of the
Left. Since Gambetta has been a deputy
he has represented the-Arrondissement of
Menilmontent, the quartier of Belleville
and ; Pere .la Chaise. < At this last election
he was not even nominated, and the j suc
cessful candidate is Mr. Tririquet, now in
; Caledonia.; Paul de Cassagnac explained,
amidst: the applause (of. (the Right,
■that this election is a blow to the Govern
ment and to Mr. Gambetta. ■ It was this
allusion which decided Mr. Gambetta to
speak, and after Paul de Cassagnac had
finished he glided to the rostrum, when,
with body bent and in low-measured tones,
he commenced his discourse. . In propor
tion as he proceeded his form grew straight
and ' tall, and his voice rang like grand
music throughout the hail. . He presented
a most touching picture of Trinquet's fam
ily, his -wife and children (with extended
-arms calling the forlorn, banished one back
to them ; and he. stated that his friends
believed the only way to obtain his free
dom was to i elect him to a public position,'
but that . these misguided, unfortunate
and homesick creatures once returned
to their families, such misunder
standings would cease.. The orator
condensed all the arguments long since
x ..-.itedly used .by the press in iavor of
_-,_aue3ty, adding his own personal I views
:___. clear penetration as to the condition of
_»._ country. His speech was very, long
sicd often interrupted by applause from the
_. _, Such was the force and magic of his
' "words and manner that members of the
Bight sat like statues without ottering, as
they usually do, a single word or remark ot
interruption. . Mr. C______a, the noted
rival of Gambetta, remained with folded
arms and face
AS TALE AS DEATH,
Without once joining in ' the applause
which burst forth ; from the Left and Cen
ter Left. Tears rolled down the cheeks ot
_ vast number of the hearers, and so in
tense * was the emotion experienced that
many writhed on their benches as though
v ift great bodily pain. Friends' who were
present informed me that they were so ex
ulted they were unable to sleep that night,
and felt the influence even over until the
' next night.; What a wonderful art is ora
tory ! The progress that . Gambetta has
, made since two years they say is remark
able, and in his inaction he has been col
lecting superior force. He has again lifted .
himse f on that pii n icle where his former
popularity placed him, and in the minds of
the people has become the famous Gam
betta of old. The bill has bean presented
before the Senate and referred to a com
mittee, but as time proceeds its victory in
that House diminishes in certainty." The
Bight are using all their power to defeat
it, as they did the Article 7, and they
depend much on the animosity existing
between Jules Simon and Gambetta to win
the former over on their side. But let it
be hoped for the sake of the honor of Jules
Simon, who has always so valiantly fought
for republican principles, that he will not
* on this occasion forsake his party, and for
the sake of a small personal revenge sac
rifice* the happiness of hundreds of unfor
tunate beings who ask to return to their
firesides.
THE GRAND FETE.
Nothing is talked of but the grand fete
of the ; 14th of July. The entire ; pro
gramme has been ' decided upon, and the
•Government isdetermincd that it shall sur
pass all previous fetes, and that the French
nation shall long keep in remembrance the
celebration :of their liberties. f What a
sight tin* grand Capital— the Capital of the
world— will present that night _ the 14th
: from j some surrounding . eminence ! ' The
• whole city will lie a blaze of light, for not
only along the wide streets and long boule
* yard leading from the Place de la Bepub-"
lique to : the Place de hi Bastile will be
: hung with lanterns and different tlluniina- i
-tions, but the whole : of the j Champs Ely-". j
- sees, from, the Place de la Concorde to the j
Arc de Triomphe, will be decorated in like j
manner. The: fete will be announced the j
■ evening of the nth '; and . the : morning of
I the 14th by the tiring of canon. On that ;
day each poor family of Paris will receive j
two francs extra from the charity commit
• tees. : : All . the public ' edifices will be dec
. orated with Bag. and illuminated on the .
evening of the 14th. Four large pieces of *
fireworks will be sent off at 9 o clock ; the
first from the Ar, de Triomphe, the second
: from the Observatory, the third from the
Place" dv Troue j and the fourth" at Mont
inartre, from the summit of the rue Caulan
- court." Two grand concerts of orchestra
and chorus will be riven; from half-past '.»
in the morning to half -past 11 in the even

fi. . S_-__AD__ "(..-;'"
- Those' who live along the borders of the
Seine enjoy twice a month during the sum
mar most delightful serenades. ". -There ; are
at Paris several well-organized rowing soci
eties who periodically unite for a . general j
lete, and on these occasions the inhabitants j
ate awakened from their first sleep by the
strains of sweet music, and, if ; they have
the curiosity, on withdrawing their curtains
may see such a fairy scene as can but chal
lenge pleasant dreams. '.The Seine seems to
be on fire, for myriads of ; little ; boats, all
decorated with Chinese ': lanterns,' are ply
ing its waters ; these are reflected; on the
smooth surface, and while the rowers bend
their oars in pleasing unison the musicians
awaken the air with their sweet strains.
To each boat _ attached a large.llag, which
playfully, trails along the . surface of the
water, and as this gay fleet of lights and
flags moves out of sight the music is wafted
back in gentle sounds until all dies away,
and one asks bimelf if it may not be a
dream. (■ One 'of the principal features of
the banks of 'the Seine; are the fisher
men. " Not fishermen - such : a3" draw " in
their ."fish and carry them to market, but
amateurs | who ; stand "ff all f, day ' long
with pole in hand, their eyes riveted on
the . line, and seemingly dead to ■ all ' the
emotions . which cause the i breasts of \ the
rest of humanity to beat.-. These fishermen
are of all ages and classes, some of them, in
fact the most of them, rich bourgeois who
lodge on the quay so as to be near the wa
ter. They have never been seen to catch
a fish, and their isolation and perseverance
cause them to be looked upon as oriijinauxf
and having little in common with the rest
of the world. They are to be seen immov
able from sunrise to sunset, and when fish
ing is prohibited by the laws during a por
tion of f the .year, the ' promenaders miss
this decoration of the quays, and condole
with these infatuated creatures whose pas
sion few others only can excel. At this
time of the year 1.1 fi":
the seise
Is particularly animated, for the different
lavoirß which had been carefully lodged in
the canal , during the winter months, arc
now stationed all along the banks, and in
the little, low stalls near the water's sur
face may be seen hundreds of washer
women, their stout, wet arms glistening in
the sunlight. Then there are the numerous
baths and swimming schools, both for men
and • women, which have also , made their
exit from the canal, and after quietly sta
tioning . themselves during the night, sor
prise the inhabitants the next day who, for
the first time, spy them from their win
dows. Aside from the general animation
of passenger boats, canal boats and so on,
occasionally two ., small boats are seen
in the midst of the - stream, two men
in one slowly rowing, and •'/■ in the
other, one man rowing : while another
stands, his arms folded, j his white beard
fading upon his breast, and his entire at
titude expressive of great solemnity. It j
is then the cry bursts from the ( eyes of j
all those on the quay. "(;.'.' Un noyer! Un j
noyer ! "fir Yes, some poor man or woman, \
discourged and tired of life, had gone to j
meet death '.* beneath the surface of the !
Seine. The crowd then follow the boats :
to the walls of the Morgue to see it posed
in the large chamber and prepared for the
public gaze. ; Unfortunately, this circum
stance in. the gay city, of Paris is almost
of daily occurrence ; yet, so 1 great ' is the
curiosity of the crowd, and their desire to
feed *on - : morbid excitement, that . they
hasten each time to witness it as though
it were a novel event.
'■'- '■ SARAH BERNHARDT.
; Judgment has ju^t been rendered in the
case of the Theatre Francais against Mile.
Sarah ( Bernhardt. This actress has been
condemned by ( the . Court to pay 100,000
francs to the Comedie Ft an ca is, to pay all !
the expenses of the ■ trial, and '. to < forfeit j
44,000 f francs -.which" she had left at the
theater for her relraite. ' One of the reasons
given in the judgment for her condemna
tion was that she had accepted a very ad
vantageous engagement in America. ■■ Had
Sarah Bernhardt waited the rendering of
the judgment before, signing the foreign en
gagement jit is \ most y probable that I her
judges would have been less severe.;; How
ever, she is 'to receive, it f seems, . 000
francs : each night she plays in America,
and doubtless she will be able to console
herself. The j majority of Europeans j im- j
agine that great stores of. gold are to be I
found in America, and that one has only to
seek its shores jto return with | a fortune.
True it is that such has j often i been the
case, and ; many a poor person 'in I France
has been made rich ; through . the death of
"some distant relative who had years before
left for America. One of the signs 'of
future prosperity is to have an uncle in I
California, which is oftener. the case than
one is likely to imagine. .-' :.;_-, Vai_ . -f

HOW TO PLAY LAWN TENNIS.
— * ,*. ■'■--. -„■■--:- -. ' .... ..--.*. .">■«.
The game of lawn tennis has secured a
strong foothold tin this ? country in a very
short space of time. A little while ago no
one heard of the game here, and now it is
on the lips of every one interested in out-"
door sports. Although the present season
is ! just [ opened, more *. than t ten ( : thousand
tennis sets have already been sold in this
city this year and forwarded to all parts of
the country, from Portland^* Me., to Port-(
land, Or. In ah article f upon | outdoor
sports printed in', this journal i some weeks
ago lawn tennis . was j briefly discussed, but
the increasing, popularity of i this game en
titles ;itj to some ] further,; attention. The
clubs in and near (our large cities arc (fast
producing good players, elaborate prepara
tions for matches and practice are making
in } the J prominent ;;( watering- places,"?* and
American manufacturers have entered into
successful'; competitions with _ the ? foreign
makers | of j tennis ] materials.' fi. Tennis | is • a
weak I and I silly game, uninteresting, flat
and unprofitable, iif the players \ do) not
play to win first, last (and; always,; and; if
they do not fully comprehend and appreci
ate what the; initiated "points." As
the - variable ; restrictions,; privileges and
conditions j of the game are j many and not
simply.; and '; accurately? set forth !in the
published rules, it is f natural * that novices
should- at first I fall i, into errors in 'playing
the game, even if they have been prudent
enough to examine . .
(". THE ADOPTED B3GU-ATIONB
Before , attempting to swing a bat. This,
as a matter of fact, is generally the | case.
In : ; Boston, where : the ; game • first gained
prominence," there are some excellent play
ers to-day. New York can boast of play
ers i almost i as ; good,"*, but ; in V both "i cities
several errors are prevalent. "ii First, as to
counting. -Uv Two 5 : systems are in vogue
at present I among j our | clubs, only one of
which is '. the proper one . to use, viz : the
old system (of making fifteen (= the game,"
allowing the; man who has | his innings to
be the only one to count, and counting one
every time he wins a strike. V The new sys
tem of alternate counting— counting fifteen
to a stroke, allowing some one to make or
lose every time, and admitting the play of
advantages— complicates the game, renders
the players ignorant \ half the time of the
condition of * their ; respective scores and
shortens the game too much." When . two
or more play on a side it is easy to imagine
conditions of play, where . odds are given, ,
when it would require three heads to keep
the score. This latter system; is the sys
tem used in court tennis in England and
not fat all in lawn"' tennis." | lgnorant- of
this fact some players here have confused
matters by trying; to apply "the system to
lawn tennis. •■' The regular system is much
simpler. It demands physical endurance
as a ; qualification of . the game, and * in
creases the importance '•. of the service,
which is one of the chief features of skill
ful playing.
. * THE RULES
Fix the weight and size of the ball, but
not its retractile force. Considerable lati
tude as to size and weight is allowed. A
bail weighing a little less than two ounces,'
and measuring about two and I five-eighths
inches . in diameter, is generally selected.
The amount of elasticity in the ball, how :
ever, left as it is," an ' open : question,'; is a
matter of constant dispute. ■ Some players
like a lively and some a comparatively dead j
ball. This question, and many others of
importance which j do not ; arise ( until a
match is begun," could be settled once for
all by a general meeting of the New York,
j Boston, Philadelphia and : other leading
clubs. , A rubber ball, which, when dropped
from the level of the head, will bound from
the surface of « the court as high as the j
knee, meets with most iavor. There is no
rule as to whether the ball should be cov
ered or not. A rubbei ball flattens more
than a covered ball when struck smartly
by a racket, thus offering more resistance
to the wind, and the j ball which | reduces
the action or the wind to a minimum is the
best ball to play with, because the wind
may upset the best calculations. a The cov
ered ball will Igo straighter and obey, the
stroke of the racket better,' thus offering
greater possibilities for accurate placing. •
. .. ; a BALL ' yf'-y/i
Covered with.white felt cemented open it
and sewed with gut is most durable, and
the elasticity in such balls can be varied as
desired. By washing the ball after a match j
it can be made light colored so as to be easily |
"seen.; Balls covered with bright-tinted net- j
work are not serviceable. The net loses its \
color after a few strokes and Wears j out
quickly, and a white ball is as easily seen ;
as the bright net. - In selecting sets cheap j
bats, etc., are to be avoided. : This year I
America .is . manufacturing -; tennis '.-. pets
largely and making ( strong endeavors to
supplant the foreign trade, which has up to
the present time furnished the best playing
materials. -The best wood for a racket is
ash. The player suits himself as to weight
within the regulations, but the beauty of a
racket is its balance. : By resting the upper j
end of the handle on the forefinger a player j
can discover whether it is heavier in the i
handle or vice versa, thus testing the bal- !
ance.' The tendency is to hold a racket as
■ cricket-bat is . held. . j This is wrong. It
the racket is held in front of the player j
horizontally, with the rough side of; the |
bowl uppermost/ the player j should grasp
the top of the handle in such a way that
the first row of knuckles shall be, not on
the top of the handle, but further over, on
the side of the handle most remote from the
player. : This will seem awkward at first,
but a little practice will show that it is best.
The service and the return V ; .'
! CONSTITUTE THE ("JAM-, '
And the latter is more important. :; As a
rule, when serving from hi-> left court the
server should give the ball | the underhand
cut, so as to make it ; bound to the left of |
the striker-out and out of bounds, and when
serving from his right court he should give
the ball : the ( back-handed I cut, ; so \as| to
make ;it bound to the striker-out's right
and out of bounds. (.These rules, of course,
must be varied at the discretion of , the
play It j is \ a ■■ question j whether < over
hand serving should ; be allowed, because a
very tall player can almost invariably serve
a ball overhand impossible t to ; return.":' In
returning always j send j back I a swift j ball
close . to . the i net. ff In , a recent match be-,
tween Oxford and • Cambridge,;' a . ball in
play was returned I thirty-nine times con
secutively, and it did not J pass once more
than an inch above the net. -The net this
year is usually the same hight all the way
across, which offers greater possibilities for
placing the ball than did ; the V uneven net.
The service ; line -is i. taken this year to a
point I half I way between - the net and the
base I line. Last ! year, when * the f service
line was about j three-quarters of the way
from j the net (to the base line,' a skillful
player had too,', much ; advantage 1. with ■ his
swift services. --{New-York l t«^^^^S

A TINKER POET.
Moscow is now mourning the death of a ;
j self-taught poet, . whose I career might have j
j afforded j! matter i for j a ''. chapter in Self- |
I Help." Born forty years ago in* a village '.
| in " the ■•: province of Yaroslavl, Ivan Sax-" j
! harovitch Surakoff was sent by his father,
I at the age of 7, to serve as | an errand boy
]at Moscow. Here, in course of time, he
j rose : to ;. be shopman, and aided ;by some
I good-humored customers, ■who used to fre
quent the place where he worked, he made !
himself familiarwi th the three It's, and with j
that incarnation of all that is vile, the gram- |
mar of his native language. While still in !
; a : rudimentary,, stage *of self-instruction, |
I he ; ' fell across la .. book -? containing .:■ the ■
| poems of Hashkin, Lermentoff and I Kolt- I
soff, the latter of whom gave him his cue I
as a poet and afterward served as his model I
I in verse. /As :is not uncommon with the
! parents lof J poets, neither his father nor
! mother looked with a favorable eye on the
! verses which Surakoff brought them after j
a while ]to Yaroslavl, and/ in obedience to j
their instructions, > his ' master 1 took such '
pains to keep pens and I paper/- and the j
means of buying ; them, out of j his way,
that young Ivan was compelled to scribble
his ; early.; poems -in f. pencil :. on / scraps iof
waste paper. / In : 1862/ by chance/ a Mos
cow journalist entered . the shop to ■ effect
a purchase/ and finding some witty verses
scribbled on his parcels went back anil had
a conversation with Surakoff which led to
the latter contributing some poems to the
I Vonkretmi Donootj.fi From | that | period', his |
contributions . to \ the ! Russian j press i were
frequent, and by 1 877 no i less thau three
volumes of '■ his ; collected I poems i had [ ap
peared, chiefly dealing with life and scenes
at Moscow. ;;. It will : surprise ' no one \ that
these productions,"' although \so [ popular, ;
failed .to "5 furnish *: him /with ; a* livelihood,
since a literary | career, . precarious \ enough
in any country, lis : doubly so "in ', Russia/
where readers are few, and publishing ex
pensive. ;/ Surakoff "; had | the ; good f sense,
therefore, to stick to his) trade, and up; to
the day of his death * he ; might have - been
seen working in his little j tinker's | shop in
one of the markets of Moscow, surrounded j
by the implements of f his craft, and having |
handy a sheet or.two of paper for jotting j
down ; any /verses ' that ; might , run * in j his |

MAGIC MIRRORS.
At the last meeting of the Physical So-' I
ciety : of Paris j some j new a " and curious ex
periments upon the so-called magic mirrors
of r Japan % were shown fby M. . Duboscq.
Mirrors having a sufficiently true 7 surface
to give a fairly good virtual image -of Jan
object held near to them,' may yet be very
irregular in the actual curvature of the sur
face and produce a very irregular/ real im
age lof a luminous ', point \ reflected by the
mirror upon a screen. ;g If such a mirror be
warmed, the thinner portions change their
cur vat; becoming ff flatter, and fi. yield
corresponding J patches f in . the : disk of re
flected light. hA mirror/which gives j. very
imperfect effects when cold will- give i very
good ones when heated.";/; If, by : means of
a condensing pump, a uniform > pressure ", is
exerted against the back of the mirror, the
thinner portions are more affected than the
thick portions, and | therefore, as viewed
from the front,-; become less concave than
the rest of the- surface, the result upon the
reflected - beam ; being that the 1 pattern of
the thicker parts comes out bright [on t the
darker ground of the image. U Lastly, if a
mirror" be cast upon the face of the original
mirror, and ', then polished, it will ! when
warmed become a "magic" mirror, though
when cold it I yields g only a 1 uniformly j
illuminated f disk s upon the screen. This
last experiment alone suffices to show that
the cause of the reputed magical | property
is to be sought/not in any difference of re
flective power in different parts of , the sur
face, but in slight differences of curvature
of the surface,

THE MAGNETIC NEEDLE .
■_ . Prof. C. jT. ■:'■ Patterson, United / States
Coast I Survey, lias : been ; explaining "why :
the magnetic needle points to | the north.''
There are some points omitted from his ex
planation that are . important, and tend Ito
settle difficulties relating to the question. *
! It Ifts been determined by experiment that
I magnetism is induced by an electrical cur
rent, and j that the j magnetic axis jof j such
induction is perpendicular to the plane of
I electrical action. An electrical. current is
| in turn produced by the action of heat un*-'
I tier certain conditions. Several reasons go
1 to show that the magnetic condition of the
earth lis [ due to j solar /heat." fi First —The
magnetic needle exhibits a daily variation,
• evidently ff depending i* upon s * the |f solar
day only. Second— The "< needle j shows : a
larger aunual variation, caused presumably
by the movement of the hot and cold belts
consequent upon I the S inclination of fi the
ecliptic to the sidereal equator. Third —
There \ is * : a '-■ larger variation corresponding
to the/variation of those solar disturbances,
producing sun spots. A period of seven to
. eleven years. The location of the north
magnetic I pole at | about 20°, west, and 66"
30' north will probably be found to depend
upon :ft First— The-, relative grouping Sof
mineral [ masses iin the earth's crust. Sec
ond The relative position of the land and
. water bodies. Third — The oceanic currents.'"
i The magnetic poles would be permanent at
I the geographic poles upon conditions, that
. | that the ecliptic and equatorial plane coin
cide ; that the earth's composition be abso
lutely uniform, and % the j arrangement j of
; land and water symmetrical. ' '.

SAND.
', Sands are derived originally from the de
composition of : the older rocks/ either jby
the ; action of running i. waters or by the
spontaneous decomposition of | the ; rocks
themselves. They are technically distin
guished from dust by he fact that they
sink at once- to the '; bottom of H water with
out leaving any.; sensible quantity in sus
pension. The decomposition of ; the ] rocks
oftep gives f rise Itol an j agglutinating sub
stance, which r accompanies ' the sand and
binds it together ; but when acted upon by
the waters it soon j parts l with | such heter
ogeneous particles, and it arrives in a com
parative pure state in the beds of the prin
cipal | rivers. ..This 5 purity is i lost : as , the
rivers approach their embouchures ; for the
diminished 1 velocity of j the . current allows
the heavier '_ particles ]to subside ] before ar
riving there. : . The water only carries
down the light earthy particles an _ the de
caying i vegetable matters 1 which I may fall
into it, thus giving rise to the formation of
clay; deposits. The '* constituent ? parts 'of
sands represent faithfully the rocks whence
they are derived.'*'. Thus the granite rocks
produce a sand the principal ingredients of
which are quartz,) leldspar ;' and mica ; . the
volcanic rocks are : represented by sands in
which "<■ lava, obsidian, etc., appear ;'i the
flat,' soft-grained : sand > arises, from the dis
integration Jof I the ; schistose ( rocks ; ; the
calcareous 'f. rocks, as might : naturally be
. expected from their soft nature,' are those
which are least represented' in the series,'
unless -in \ the [ case j of ' the silicious sands |
arising from the comminution of the flints,
BO S plentiful j in , some |of the secondary j
formations. /.The = partial^ and ( secondary
revolutions of j the globe have given rise to
immense format ions of sand in places where ;
I rivers have long .nee ceased to flow. The |
sand extracted therefrom is known under I
! the f. name of " pit sand," to distinguish it
| from that borne down by the rivers, call,
"river sand," and from the ffi virgin sand,"
which remains in the places where formed,
without in any way suffering the action X>i
water. Pit sand is generally of a sharper
and more angular; grain than river sand,
but in all other respects its composition is i
identical, excepting, that it is * occasionally
stained by ochres. ;? Practically ; speaking,
clean, sharp, coarse sand is best, and makes
the hardest plastering | aa a* general rule, !
' and it is safe to rely on : river sand, the
coarser the ';. better, within j reasonable lim- ■
its. f Lake sand i.i the same as 'river sand, '
and * pit \ sand always . makes | good " work
whan the sand is clean and coarse. -^[Cham

HOW ENGLISH LAWYERS GROW RICH.
It . ; is seldom that :an English Judge,
upon the - bench, condemns the excessive
Costs ; of litigation,' and of ' legal proceed
ings . . generally, "- in ' this fi country. We
would that it were done more often, hardly
lets in the interest '■ of the profession than
on f public grounds. We hope that the
strong but ; becoming ■ language ;in f which
Lord; Justice James recently condemned
the enormous cost of litigation will not be
! lost upon : our : profession, ; and especially
; upon those members of it upon whom the
I responsibilities of a seat in Parliament are
I now resting. 'Is■ it wise, We ask," for law
i yers to try the experiment of leaving lay
-1 men, both in and out of Parliament, to cut
down the cost of legal ; proceedings ? ;-■ Is it
not the duty of 'the legal profession itself
to; take up this j question and apply the
necessary remedies, some of which are al
ready at hand?. Any sufficient and therefore
substantial alterations in legal procedure
must I necessarily affect large . numbers {of
members of the profession ;: in some cases
adversely,' and I in [ others j to j their advan
! tage. Anion:; the sources which give 'rise
to costs, the incurring of /. which | might
often 'be i avoided, • the following may be
mentioned: Pleadings," which practice the
Judicature j acts have to ; ail intents * and ;
' purposes preserved ; the central instead of
i the local administration of justice : the in- '
j terests and privileges of the! bar : the sys- j
tern by which solicitors are remunerated :
the practice of the Judges in granting new j
trials ; the unnecessarily large fees often re-'
ceived by counsel, and allowed on taxa
tion; the scale of costs drawn with a dis
tinct view of encouraging solicitors to em
ploy counsel, instead of vice versa ;■ the
I delay in] dealing j with the High Court of
Justice ; the ■ uncertainty of the law as at
present administered, in the absence of a
code, and in view of the enormous accum
ulation :of case law, and "■-. by which * litiga
tion sometimes becomes little better than
a gambling speculation ; and j finally, both
branches ; of the profession ' are ) filled * to
I overcrowding, and the result is a residuum
! in both' branches [of . speculative lawyers,"
j who are a danger to society, and who in
j elude the black sheep of the profession.
