A great deal has been said about
Juries lately. Many people arc
moved to condemn the whole system
because certain Juries lately did not,
or could not, ngiec upon a verdict.
It has been said to ns that one good
Judge well-versed in law is woith
more than a dozen Jurymen who,
piobably, know nothing whatever of
law. This is no doubt so for cer
tain tilings but it is equally certaiiii
Unit the dozen Jurymen ate as valu
able in their place.
The Jury system can bo traced
far. back till its origin is lost in the
mist of ages. Far as the early
history of the Anglo-Saxon race ex
tends, so far do wo And traces Of
the system, and everywhere the
Anglo-Saxon has set his foot there
ho lias carried as the inalienable
bnlwaik of his liberties the tried
and trusted custom of trial by Jury.
And why then, is it that he places
so much reliance on a Jury? Be
cause he is accustomed to interpret
his laws so literally, lie is well
acquainted with the fact that the
Inw, rigidly interpreted and carried
out, as it would, and ought, to be by
a Judge or skilful lawyer, often
presses hardly upon individual cases.
Cases frequently come up which
were not contemplated when the law
was framed ; and, as the legislative
is wisely separated fiom the Judicial
functions In all good codes, a Judge
lias not the power, or, in 111:1113 cases
the inclination, to arrange foi' these-,
cases of hardship.
For this purpose, then, the Jury
system forms an admirable safe
guard.' The Jury arc not expected
to return a verdict according to the
law for, then, there would be no use
for them. 'Die Judge, being belter
bkilled in law, could do better with
out them. They, being selected
from amongst the citizens, peers of
tlo accused, arc to consider whether
in their view the evidence justifies
the law being carried out as the pro
secutor or plaintiff desires it shall be
And, although, at times, Juries
may be wrong in their decisions, yet
as a general rule, their opinion, or
want of agreement, reflects popular
judgment. "Wc, therefore, arc of
opinion that with all its defects our
Jury system is the only safeguard
wc have against undue harshness in
the enforcement of law.
A FREAK OF NATURE.

the log externally, but round the

A rumour is ourront in Rome that
Princo Hismarck intends to ro-cstnb-lish'tho
Kingdom of Poland undor a
Princo of tho IIouso of Austria.
This mows, truo or not, has produced
a profound sensation at the Vatican.
Cctowayo hns already landed at
Capo Town, where ho is to remain
for tho present pending the arrange
ments to bo nindo for his return
to Zululand. Tho natives of
Northern Transvaal arc again giving
trouble. They decline to rcniuin
under tho Boers, and dcclaro that
they will light rather than pay tho
taxes demanded by tho Dutchmen.
In the Flowery Land tiioy per
form vaccination, not on tho arm,
nor on tho leg, but on the tip of the
nose. Up to this tho Chincso
Goverment has offered a premium of
lialf-ii-tael for each child vacciualod,
but tho reward has not tempted tho
families of tho rich, who prefer to
have tho olfactory organs of their
offspring untampcred with. . An im
perial decrco, issued by tho Brother
of tho Moon, has appeared, making
vaccination compulsory through tho
Celestial Empire. ' 1 '
1 have just dropped upon another
excellent and characteristic joko of
the Into Norman Macleod. As 0110
of Her Majesty's Chaplains, ho was
frequently inundated with invitations
from tuft-huutois. Ho was dining
at the house of one of these per
sons 11 lady one evening, and got
a littlu bit exasperated at tho man
ner which ho was treated. In addi
tion to being pestered with ques
tions, lie submitted for boinc time to
tho equally monstrous annoyance of
not being asked to take any liquid,
refreshment. ' And what would
Her Majesty bo saying to you when
dining witlr her at this stago of tho'
dinner, Mr. Macleod ?" fussily asked
his hostess after the third 'course.
"Madame," said ho witli boino
warmth, "at this stago of the dinner
Her Majesty usually pushes tho
whiskey decanter towards nic and
says, 'Tnk' a dram, Norman, my
man ;' and (added Norman with
some sentcntiousncbs) '1 mostly en
deavour to oblige Her Majesty."
I hear that Sarah Bernhardt has
given up 800 a month, which was
to have been paid, with all expenses,
by her impremirio for hor American
tour. It may be said she his capri
cious, but she certainly is not avari
cious. He. powers may have been
more taxed than she would herself
admit. I hear her bister, who is
only a great actress by courtesy,
suddenly left the Bordeaux theatre,
drove off to a lonely spot on the
Noir, and was there found walking
up and down in a state of gieat
excitement. Audiences little under
stand the tax on an actress's nerves.
A good general does not forget to
provide for his retreat; a good house
wife dose not forget the claims of
Vimprccu; and some careful souls
lire anxious that if the Queen of
England loses her throne and becomes
n private person to whom the use of
titles is forbidden, she shall not be
left a nameless woman. Her hus
band, the Prince Consort, ' had he
not been 'a member pf a Boyal
Family, would havo been Ilerr
Wettin. But the best authorities
declare that the Queen is not' Mrs.
Wettin. She is too great a person to
tako her husband's name. -Like the
Baroness Burdett Coutls, she
briiigs her husband, round to her own
patronymic. JTer mime- "before he'r
marriage, if she had not- been the
PiineesH Victoria, would havo been
Miss Guelph or Guelf. But she is
too dignified a personage to wear
even her own name. The spectator
declines that the name of n Itoyal
houso never alters, and that tho
Queen is really Mrs. Stuart. I
mcddlo not myself with great mat
ters which are too higli for me. But
if (tho Queen to to go buck to the
Stuarts for rt surunmc? why' should
she not go back to the Plantagenets?
Here comes another ditllculty. For
there was a certain Henry 'Tudor,
ulio undoubtedly gave Ids name to n
Royal line; and if ho did so, why
(speaking with all reverence) might
not tho Prince Consort? Speaking
in ignorance, but still with n regard
to precedents, I am much inclined to
put my faith in Mrs. "Wettin.
Of course, the British victory on
tho banks of tho Nile made our
lively neighbours unspeakably en
vious, but, as luck would havo, it,
the suicide of Mdllc. Fcyghiuo oc
curred just in the nick of time to
"'distract?' them. As usual a great
deal of twaddle has been said and
written about tho fair young
liussinn but pcihaps the clerical
UniKcrs showed the most souse by
disposing of tho event in four brief
lines, llowovcr, it was a godsend
to tho hungry Boulevard prints,
which gave us columns about it.
