THE MARCH ASSIZE.
BV SAMCEL WARREX, AUTHOR OF ' TEN THOU
SAND A TEAR," ETC.
Harvey was arraigned in dae form; the
evidence was gone caret ully through, and
everything, so far as I was concerned, was
done that man could do. But at the time
to which I refer, counsel was not allowed to
address the court on behalf of the prisoner
a practice since introduced from Scotland
and coisequeotly I vvas allowed no oppor
tunity to draw the attention of the jury to
the total want of any direct evidence of the
prisonTs guilt. Harvey himself tried to
point out the unlikelihood of his being
guilty ; but he was no man gifted with dia
lectic qualities, and his harangue fell point
less on the understandings of the twelve
commonplace individuals who sat ia the
jury box. The judge finally proceeded to
sum the evidence, and this be did empha
tically against the prisoner dwelling with
much force on the suspicious circumstances
of a needy man taking up his abode at an
expensive fashionable hotel; his furtive
descent from bis apartments by the back
stairs ; the undoubted fact of the watch be
ing found in his trunk ; the improbability of
any one putting it there but himself ; and
the extreme likelihood that the robbery was
effected in a few moments of time by the
culprit, just as he passed from the bar of the
hotel to the room which he had occupied.
" If," said he to the jury, in concluding his
address, " you can, after all these circum
stances, believe the prisoner to be innocent
of the crime laid to his charge, it is more
than I can do. The thing seems to me as
clear as the sun at noonday. The evidence,
in short, is irresistible ; and if the just and
necessary provisions of the law are not en
forced in such very plain cases, then society
will be dissolved, and security for property
there will be none. Gentlemen, retire and
make up your verdict."
The jury was not disposed to retire,
After communing a few minutes together,
one of them stood up and delivered the ver
dict. It was "guilty!" The judge as
sumed the crowning badge of the judicial
potentate the black cap; and the clerk of
arraigns asked the prisoner at the bar, in
the usual form, if he had anything to urge
why sentence of death should not be passed
Poor Harvey ! I durst scarcely look at
him. As the sonorous words fell on his ear,
he was grasping nervously with shaking
hands at the front of the dock. He appeared
stunned, bewildered, as a man but half
awakened from a hideous dream might be
supposed to look. He had comprehended,
though he had scarcely heard, the verdict ;
for, on the instant, the voice which but a
few years before sang to him by the brook
side, was ringing through his brain, and he
could recognize the little pattering feet of
his children, as sobbing and clinging to their
shrieking mother's dress, she and they were
hurried out of court. The clerk, after a
painful pause, repeated the solemn formula.
By a strong effort the doomed man mastered
his agitation ; his pale countenance lighted
up with indignant fire, and firm and self
possessed, he thus replied to the fearful in
M Much could I say in the name, not of
mercy, but of justice, why the sentence about
to be passed on me should not be pronounced ;
but nothing, alas ! that will avail you with
me, pride-blinded ministers of death. You
fashion to yourselves out of your own vain
conceits do you fashion modes and instru
ments, by the aid of which you fondly
imagine to invest yourselves with attributes
which belong only to omniscience ; and now
I warn you and it is a voice from the tomb
in whose shadow I already stand, which ad
dresses you that you are about to commit
a most cruel and deliberate murder."
He paused, and the jury looked into each
other's eyes for the courage they could not
find in their own hearts. The voice of con
science spoke, but was only for a few mo
ments audible. The suggestions that what
grave parliaments, learned judges and all
classes of " respectability " sanctioned could
not be wrong, much less murderous or cruel,
silenced the ''still, small" tones and tran
quilized the startled jurors.
Prisoner at the bar," said the judge with
his cold, calm voice of destiny, " I cannot
listen to such observations. You have been
found guilty of a heinous offense by a jury
of your countrymen after a patient trial.
With that finding I need scarcely say I en
tirely agree. I am as satisfied of your guilt
as if I had seen you commit the act with
my own bodily eyes. The circumstance of
your being a person, who, from habits and
education, should have been above commit
ting so base a crime, only aggravates your
guilt. However, no matter who or what
you have been, you must expiate your of
fense on the scaffold. The law has very
properly, for the safety of society, decreed
the punishment of death for such crimes.
Our only and plain duty is to execute that
The prisoner did not reply. He was
leaning with his elbow on the front of the
dock, his bowed face covered with his out
spread hands ; and the judge passed sen
tence of death in the accustomed form. The
court then rose, and a turnkey placed his
hand upon the prisoner's arm to lead him
away. Suddenly he uncovered his face,
drew himself up to his full height he was
a remarkably tall man and glanced fiercely
round upon the audience, like a wild animal
at bay. "My lord," he cried, or rather
shouted, in an excited voice. The judge
motioned impatiently to the jailer, and
strong hands impelled the prisoner from the
front of the dock. Bursting from them he
again sprang forward, and his arms out
stretched, whilst his glittering eye seemed
to hold the judge spell-bound, exclaimed :
' -My lord, before another month has passed
away you will appear at the bar of another
world to answer for- the life, the innocent
life, which God bestowed upon me, but
which you have impiously cast away as a
thing of naught and scorn." He ceased,
and was at once borne off. The court, in
some confussion, hastily departed. It was
thought at the time that the judge's evident
ly failing health had auggested the prophecy
to the prisoner. It only excited a few days
wonder and was forgotten.
The position of a barrister in such circum
stances i.s always painful. I need hardly
say that my own feelings were of a very
distressing kind. Conscious that if the un
fortunate man really was guilty he was at
least not deserving of capital punishment, I
exerted myself to procure a reprieve. In the
first place I waited privately on the judge,
but he would listen to no proposal for a
respite. Along with a 'number of indi
viduals, chiefly of the Society of Friends, I
petitioned the crown for a commutation of
the sentence, but being unaccompanied with
a recommendation from the judge, the pray
er of our petition was of course disregarded ;
the law, it was said, must take its course.
How much cruelty has been exercised under
shelter of that remorseless expression !
I would willingly pass over the succeed
ing events. Unable to save his life, I en
deavored to soothe the few remaining hours
of the doomed convict, and frequently
visited him in the condemned cell. 1 he
more I saw of him the deeper grew ray
sympathy in his case, which was that of no
vulgar felon. " I have been a most unfortu
nate man," said he one day to me. " A des
tiny towards ruin in fortune and in life has
pursued me. I feel as if deserted by God
and man ; yet I know, or at least would
persuade myself, that Heaven will one day
vindicate my innocence of this foul charge.
To think of being hanged like a dog for a
crime at which my soul revolts ! Great is
the crime of those imbecile jurors and that
false and hard-hearted judge, who thus, by
an irreversible decree, consign a fellow mor
tal to a death of violence and disgrace. Oh,
God, help me help me to sustain that
bitter, bitter hour ! " . And then the poor
man would throw himself on his bed and
But the parting with his wife and children.
What pen can describe that terrible inter
view ! They knelt in prayer, their wo-be-gone
countenances suffused in tears, and
with hands convulsively elapsed together.
The scene was too harrowing and sacred for
the eye of a stranger. I rushed from the
cell, and buried myself in my lodgings,
whence I did not remove till all was over.
Next day James Harvey, a victim of cir
cumstantial evidence, and of a barbarous
criminal code, perished on the scaffold.
Three weeks afterwards the court arrived
at a populous city in the west of England.
It had in the interval visited another assize
town, and there Judge A had left three
for execution. At the trials of these men,
however, I had not attended, so shocked
had been my feelings with the mournful
event, which had taken place at , that
I . had gone into Wales for the sake of
change of scene. After roaming about for
a fortnight amidst the wild solitudes of
Caenarvonshire I took the stage for the city
which I knew the court was to visit, and
arrived on the day previous to the opening
of the assizes.
Well, are we to . have a heavy
calendar T " I inquired next morning of a
brother barrister on entering the court.
" Rather light for a March assize," replied
the impatient counsel as he bustled onward.
"There's Cartwright's case highway rob
bery in which I am for the prosecution.
He'll swing for it, and perhaps four or five
A good hanging judge is . A ,'!said
the under sheriff, who at this moment joined
us, rubbing his hands as if pleased with the
prospect of a few executions. " No chance
of the prophecy yonder coming to pass, I
suppose ? "
Not in the least," replied the bustling
counsel. " He never looked better. His
illness has gone completely off, and this
day's work will brighten him up."
Cartwright's trial came on. I had never
seen the man before, and was not aware
that this was the same person whom Har
vey had incidentally told me he had dis
charged for theft ; the truth being that, to
the last moment of his existence, that un
fortunate man had not known how much he
had been a sacrifice to this wretch's malice.
The crime of which the villain now stood
accused was that of robbing a farmer of the
paltry sum of eight shillings, in the neigh
borhood of Ilfracombe. He pleaded not
guilty, but put in no defense. A verdict
was recorded against him, and in due form
A sentenced him to be hanged. An
expression of fiendish malignancy gleamed
over the haggard features of the felon as he
asked leave to address a few words to the
court. It was granted. Leaning forward,
and raising his heavy, scowling eyes to the
judge, be thus begun : "There i3 something
on my mind,-my lord a dreadful crime
which, as I am to die for the eight shillings
I took from the fanner, I may as well 'con
fess. You may remember Harvey, my lord,
whom you hanged the other day at ? "
" What of it, fellow ? " replied the judge,
his features suddenly flashing crimson.
" Why, my lord, only this that he was
as innocent of the crime for which you
hanged him as the child yet unborn ! I did
the deed ! I put the watch in the trunk ! "
and to the unutterable horror of the entire
court he related the whole particulars of the
transaction, the origin of his grudge against
Harvey, and his delight on bringing him to
Inhuman, execrable villain ! " gasped
the judge in extreme excitement.
" Cleverly done, though ! Was it not, my
lord T " rejoined the ruffian with bitter irony.
The evidence, you know, was irresistable ;
the crime as clear as the sun at noonday ;
and, if in such plain cases, the just and
necessary law was not enforced, society
would be dissolved, and there would be no
security for property ! These were your
words I think. How on this occasion I ad
mired your lordship's judgment and
eloquence ! Society would be dissolved if an
innocent man were not hanged ! Ha ! ha !
ha ! capital ! capital 1 " shouted the fero
cious fellow with demoniac glee, as he
marked the effect of his words on the coun
tenance of the judge.
" Remove the prisoner ! w cried the
sheriff. An officer was about to do so, but
the judge motioned him to desist. His
lordship's ' features worked convulsively.
He seemed striving to speak, but the words
would not come. .
" I suppose, . my lord," continued Cart
wright in low and hissing tones, as the
shadow of unutterable despair grew and
settled on his face. " I suppose you know
that his wife destroyed herself. The
Coroner's jury said she had fallen accident
ally into the water. I know better. She
drowned herself under the agonies of a
broken heart ! I saw her corpse, with the
dead baby in its arms ; and then I felt,
knew, that I was lost! Lost, doomed to
everlasting perdition ! Bat, my lord," and
here the wretch broke into a howl wild and
terrific, " tee shall go down together down
to where your deserts are known. A-h-h !
that pinches you does it? Hound of a judge 1
Legal murderer I Coward !, I spurn and spit
upon thee I " The rest of the appalling ob
jurgation was inarticulate, as the monster,
foaming and sputtering, was dragged by an
officer from the dock.
Judge A had fallen forwards on his
face, fainting and speechless with the vio
lence of his emotions. The black cap had
dropped from his brow, his hands were
stretched out across the bench, and various
members of the bar rushed to his assistance.
The court broke up in frightful commotion.,
Two days afterwards the paper had the
following announcement :
"Died at the Royal Hotel, , oh the
27th inst., Judge A- , from an access of
fever supevening upon a disorder from which
he had imperfectly recovered."
The prophecy was fulfilled.
A Dutchman was relating hit marvellous es
cape tron drowning when thirteen of bis com
panion were loat bj the upsetting of a boat and

This was an act of ejectment tried at the''
June Term of the second Judicial Circuit at.
The defendants claimed at the trial that j
they were heirs to the person last seized, j
and further that they had been.in possession I
of the whole land for more than twenty j
thp Tilnintiff havinsr claimed an un- i
divided half yi this land by right of inherit
ance. -The testimony on both sides : was
clear with regard to the right of inheritance
of both parties, and although there was evi
dence that " the defendants had lived on the
land a long time, there was a discrepancy
regarding the time at which the wido w of
the patentee, who .occupied the land after his
death, deceased. Some testified that she
died abouf 4S55, and others ; about 1S65.
But all the testimony was that the parties,
plaintiff and defendants were co-heirs ; and
there was no testimony whatsoever, that the
party plaintiff had ever been ousted by the
party,defendint, simply mat me aeienaanis
had been allowed ' to live on the land. . Un
der these circumstances the Court instructed
the Jury that if the evidence showed that
the plaintiffs had been tenants in common
with the defendants and those under whom
they claimed, and there had been na ouster,
the possession of the defendants would be
the possession of the plaintiffs, and prescrip
tion would not be applicable to the case.. !
The Jury, notwithstanding the instruc
tions of the Court, returned a verdic t for the
defendants for the whole land.
And the Court on motion ordered a judg
ment to be entered for the plaintiff for one
half of the land non obstante veredicto, ; be
cause by the whole showing of the case it
viis evident that the defendants had not
ousted the plaintiffs.
This is undoubtedly a proper judgment,
for a judgment non obstante veredicto is a
proper judgment whenever on a review of
the whole case, in any view, of it, the : de
fendant's claim has no merits. ...
It is said , at the, hearing that no such re
sult can be made from the- records o this
The whole testimony is before us, and by
it it appears that no attempt was made to
show an ouster or to show that the plaintiffs
were not co-heirs, and therefore tenants in
common. This is equivalent to a t confes
sion that they could not show these two es
sential facts, snd consequently, is equivalent
to an admission that the defen dants axe in
the WTong, and no new trial could result to
the advantage of the defendants.
Therefore, the judgment for the plaintiffs
non-obstante veredicto was correct.

Harris; C. .7"., Judd and McCvlly, J. '.T.
. . Opinion by Mc Cully, J.
This was an action of Ejectment, verdict
for the plaintiffs, exceptions taken to the in
structions given to the jury and to the re
fusal of instructions prayed for, set forth in
the bill as follows: ' '
.1. The Court said, "The defence by 120
years po- session must be in your minds un
questionable, hostile and uninterrupted," , to
which the defendant by his counsel excepted.
2. The counsel for the defence asked the
Judge to instruct the jury that " In regard
to the defence by prescription, no evidence
relating to the other piece of land not in the
case is to be considered," which the court
refused to give and charged instead.
3. That inasmuch as the pieces were in
one award and claimed under the same title
and that Kahiuka (defendant's grantor) had
put in issue by his evidence his possession
of the mauka piece claiming it likewise by
the same title under which. he claimed the
iiuikui piece (the lot in question,) in that
way the evidence became relative to the
issue, to which refusal and instructions in
stead, the defendant by his counsel excepted.
To explain the foregoing it may be stated
that the plaintiff (her husband being joined)
claimed the piece of land for which action is
brought by virtue of being the .grand
daughter of Napohaku, he, the brother a nd
sole heir of Kaluhi, to whom the land
was awarded by( the Land Commission.
Kaluhi's patent which, was exhibited from
the plaintiff's hands, embraces two pieces.
Apana 1. A pa-hale or house lot in Hamo
hamo, on the sea beach, containing 35-100
acre, being the lot incontroversy, anif 2, 'He
mau loi,"some taro patches, and a water right
inNiukukahi. These pieces are not adjacent
to each other, the precise distance apart is
not made known, but they lie in the same
district of Waikiki. This patent is like hun
dreds of others which granted, pursuant to
awards, two or 'more detached lots of land,
securing to the native tenant, his house lot
on dry land, very frequently, on or near the
sea beach, and his taro- patches inland,
whereby he might live according to th'e Ha
waiian wayl ' " " "" '
. i. The naked principle for which' the coun
sel contends, namely that where sundry de
tached prices are granted in a royal patent,
a prescriptive right might be acquired in one
of them by adverse possession for more than
twenty years, without regard to the holding
of -, the other lots, and that - the holding of
such other lots-Jiy .the party .having the
paper title or by right of inheritance,, would
not defeat the title gained by prescription,
is sound. ..j . . .... tlr s ....... i
It often happens, .that the priginal grantee
of sundry parcels under one award conveys
.them to different person, or that, the titles
are divided by devise or distribution of
estate, and doubtless the several . parcels
cease to be , affected by the , nexus of the'
original grant. . . . i ' "
Or if the owner, of separate tracts of land
conveys them by a single deed, it is not
doubted that any one piece might afterwards
come to be affected by prescription, 'without
regard to the; history of other parcels'. ' -
We d o not hold that .the doctrine of pos
session ."of a " portion of an estate, tract or
parcel of land as a, possession of the whole,
applies to the possession' "of one piece out of
several pieces,- only from the. fact of such
different pieces having Teen' coupled "in the
Examining the testimony which comes up
with the bill we find that the plaintiff offers
evidence that the estate fell from Kaluhi, the
patentee, at his death in 1854 or earlier, to
his brother Napohaku as his sole heir that
Napohaku held the estate, both: pieces, till
his death, during the present reign' Trf 1874
or later;, and evidence , that, she is" the
grand daughter and heir of Napohaku. . ' "
'To meet this case the defendant offers tes
timony" that his grantor; ; Kahuika, was the
heir .of .Kaluhi, and had succeede'd to his es
tate upon liis death, se that. he i now held it
by right of inheritances as well as ' by a pos-
session which would give him title by pre.
It was therefore, relevant to the case to
consider evidence concerning the possession
of both pieces. The witnesses for both parties
gave testimony on the facts of possession.
The defendant's grantor set up a possession
of both pieces and was met by plaintifTs evi
dence, and cross-examination of defendant's
with proofs that the one and the other had
been held by the tenants of Napohaku till
Of the .weight of the testimony it was for
the jury to judge, but it is clear that the
facts relative to the mauka piece were in
volved in the ' case before the court. The
knowledge and the veracity of the witnesses
were tested on the one piece as well as the
other of Kaluhi's estate. And there was
this special reason why both parties should
make a stronger case on the mauka land
than the beach lot, that crops had been rais
ed there, by - which - possession could be
shown, while there had been no inhabited or
habitable house on the house lot for 35 or 40
years, and it had been fenced, if at all, in a
very partial and imperfect way, and lain
very much open.
-VVe therefore hold that the court did not
err in respect to exceptions 2 and 3.
- The first exception taken was not neticed
by defendant's counsel in his argument, and
nppears to have been abandoned as unten
able, as in i ur view it is. Exceptions over
ruled. Bickerton for plaintiffs, Dole for de

Boston's 250th Anniversary.
On the seventeenth of last month Boston cele
brated her two hundred and fiftieth birthday.
The, first white settler on the Boston peninsula
William . Blackstone landed there in 182C.
When, in 1830, the neighboring Charleston set
tlement was in distress for want of water,
Blucktstone went to Governor Winthrop and told
hiui of an excellent spring at Shawmut (as hi
residence was then called) and a settlement there
wub formed in August of that year. Vast prep
aration had been made to celebrate the entry of
the citj upon the second quarter of a millennium.
We take the following extracts from the
despatches of a newspaper correspondent who
was at the celebration :
Boston, Sept. 16. i All daj the city bad been
filling up with strangers from alt parts of the
country, from Canada and the provinces, and to
night every hotel is full to overflowing. By the
time of the moving of the prooession to-morrow
all the public buildings and the buildings of histo
ric memory, together with public and private
houses, will wear a gala appaarance- The statue
of Gov.' John Winthrop was placed in position
this afternoon in Scolla Square. As a part of the
commemoration of the day an immense gathering
ol ladies and gentlemen took ptace in Faneuil
Hall this evening.
. Boston, Sept. 17. The parade to-day was a
grand success. It was three hours passing a giv
en point, but there was no delay nor imperfec
tions in any of the details. The applause heaped
upon the passing display was something unparal
Icl in the history of Boston processions.
" The only serious interference with the steady
progress of the procession was caused by a fire in
Notman and Campbell's. There was a great
rush of the thounands ol people toward the burn
ing building. The engine, hoBe-cart. hook and
ladder trucks and extinguisher came in a lump,
and the roll of drums, the rattle of fire gongs and
the blasts of fire horns, with the noise made by
the flying multitude, for a few minutes produced
a scene of almost unparalleled confusion and ex
citement. t The firemen . found it necessary to
turn a stream of water upon the crowding multi
tude in order to get .room to work. The effect of
the sudden deluge was instantaneous. Men and
women fled as though a menagerie had been let
loose, and the throng melted away like magic
This incident caused a half hour's delay.
" The continuation ol the celebration to-night
was not less attractive than the ceremonies of the
day. The torchlight procession was principally
devoted to fifteen allegorical tableaux under the
auspices of the German Turnverein Society, rep
resenting prominent events in American history
happening in this section of the country. The
