Supreme Court, Oct. 17, 1600.
jUItOUS FEES AXD COSTS.
The statute provides, that one dollar for
each daj'6 attendance and fifty cents for each
verdict, shall be the juror's fees, parable as
part of the costs. Connsel argued that tax
ing the iecs of the entire panel Is inequitable,
virtually closing the doors of justice to a
large class of meritorious plaintiffs or de
fendants; that the statute only Intended tbat
fifty cents for a verdict should be taxed upon
litigants, or at the most, the per diem fees of
the twelve men who tried the case, and not
of the entire panel.
It was argued that the right of trial by jury
Is abridged by requiring parlies seeking Jus
tice to pay all the expenses of the jury, as
much so, as If they were held to pay the sal
aries of judges or marshal, or the expense
of Court-Houses; that the statute requires a
panel of twenty-four native and twenty-four
foreign jurors to be summoned, and gives
suitors aright to have a Jury drawn from
tbe whole foreign or native panel; tbat
it Is a great hardship In a protracted trial
by a mixed Jury, for instance, to pay the
entire costs of both juries, for the number
of days they are engaged, while it is in
equitable to divide tbe costs of the pan
els evenly among the causes tried, without
regard to the length of each trial ; and final
ly, that a rule which makes costs dependent
upon the number ot litigants, or upon the
discretion of tbe Court to remit them, Is too
uncertain and fluctuating to answer the
purposes of Justice.
These viewB have been carefully consider
ed, for the question Involved Is important.
To give all persons an opportunity for a jury
trial, at a reasonable expense, and at the
same time, not to open the doors to frivo
lous litigation, is the object sought. The
costs of our Courts are not so heavy as
to prevent considerable maintenance of
suits, or taking up cases on speculation. To
remit, altogether, tbe per diem fees of jurors,
would result, probably, in filling our dock
ets with petty cases, requiring heavier ap
propriations by the legislature, and heavy
calls upon the time of jurors.
A jury trial is guaranteed by the Constitu
tion; sols the appoiutment of judges and
officers of Court, with fixed salaries, payable,
with the expenseof maintaining court-houses,
and prosecuting offenders, from the pub
lic treasury by regular appropriations. Tbe
taxable statute costs In criminal cases, if
the prisoner has no property on which exe
cutions can be levied, are by law payable out
of the treasury of tbe Kingdom. Tbe appro
priation for the Courts is not intended to
cover costs for tbe payment of which spec
ial provision is otherwise made. All the
requisites, for the administration ot justice
arc provided at the public expense. The
panels are drawn and summoned, and are In
readiness for suitors who desire their causes
to be tried. The expense of retaining juries
to try causes Is by statute taxable to the liti
gants, and properly so. The fifty cents al
lowed each juror for averdict, and the per
diem fees r aid to him while trying a cause,
are clearly to be taxed to tbs causes tried.
The expenses of tbe panel not engaged In
trials, are borne by the Government, but
parties mu6t pay the fees of their own juries.

per bill annexed, of the amount of JSO7.07.
Defense: Accord and satisfaction, by giving
of C. II. Lewers's promissory note for the
amount of tbe bill, payable totbe plaintiff's
order. Jury was waived. The defendant's
answer admitting tbe sale and delivery of
tbe goods, tbe plaintiff offered no evidence.
Tbe defendant offered in evidence tbe said
note, dated October 5, 1EC8, payable Jan
nary 10, 1669, and Indorsed May 1, 1S09, with
the receipt of JS6.T9, signed with the
plaintiff's name. The note was produced
by the plaintiff, at tbe defendant's request
The defendant also put in the following re

The defendant's evidence showed that the
receipt was signed by the plaintiff's book

plaintiff's counsel claimed tbat the book

could testify as to his signature and employ

The defendent then rested, and the plain
tiff's counsel moyed for judgment, which
motion was argued at length, and denied.
Tbe Court ruled that a negotiable, promis
sory note of a third person was not to be j
regarded as conclusive evidence of full sat
isfaction of tbe debt, but that tbe agreement
of the parties only, made It so; which agree
ment was a question of lact, and not law;
that In this rase, tbe Court thought tbat
tbe note was given, taken, and trcattd as
payment; aud were about proceeding to or

tiff's counsel desired to addoce further tes

as closed, but permitted an affidavit to
be filed by the plaintiff's counsel, tbat be
moved for judgment, supposing tbat he
might afterwards offer evidence in rebuttal,
If tbe Court should not order judgment for
tbe plalutlff, as the case was then presented.
The Court ruled tbat although this was not
according to the rules of practice, tbe plain
tiff's counsel might, on this affidavit, proceed
now to put In his evidence of rebuttal;
whereupon the evidence of the book-keeper
was given: that tbe defendant asked bim to
take Lewers's note in settlement of his ac
count, because be thought Cleghorn could
more likely collect it; that he took the note,
and gave the receipt, by the plaintiff's per
mission, and credited to bills receivable.

A Piece or News. Here is a piece of news
which will probably cause every one who reads
it to make a desperate and insanec&orttolook
down his own throat and ascertain whether
his epiglottis is in a vertical or a drooping and
pendentjiosition. In the former ease he may
look upon himself as destined to a green old
age; in tbe latter, be should at once make his
will, buy a lot in Greenwood or Calvary, and
contract for a funeral. At tbe recent meeting
of the British Association, Sir Duncan Gihb
read a paper entitled "An Obstacle to Longev
ity Beyond Seventy." lie had examined "the
leaf shaped cartilage at the back of the tongue,
known as the epiglottis, in 5,000 healthy peo
plo of all ages, and in 550 it was found to be
drooping or pendent, in place of vertical"
Now this statement, taken alone, conveys no
other impression than tbat Sir Dur.can must
be very fond of looking in the throats of his
friends, and that he scarcely could be a pleas
ant man to meet in general society; bat it is
what follows thatmakeshisstatement Interest
ing, lie bad discovered, by dint of looking
into these 5,000 throats, "that in all persons
over 70, the positions of the epiglottis was ver
tical, without a single exception." In a num
ber of cases where the age varied from 70 to5,
tbe epiglottis reared its proud form erect, in
stead of supinely inclining toward tbe earth.
It was so with Lord Palmerston Lord Lynd
hurst, Lord Campbell, and Lord Brougham.
He knew a number of old ladies still alire at
ages from 78 to 92, whose epiglottis was verti
cal, and one old gentleman, 102 years old, in
whom it occupied tbe same position. Sir
Duncan laid it down as an indisputable truth
that, as a rale, persons with a pendent epiglot
tis do not attain a longevity beyond seventy,
while a vertical epiglottis allows of tbe attain
ment of fonr score years and upwards, and af
fords the best chance of reaching tbe extremest
limits of longevity. The practical benefits
tbat may be derived from this discovery are
numerous. The afieetionate heirs of an old
lady who is verging from 70 years of age may
relieve themselves from suspense by bribing
her physician to examine his patient's throat
and report npon the state of her epiglottis. If
it be erect, they will hare the sweet satisfac
tion of knowing that she may yet be spared to
them for twenty-five or thirty years, and they
will feel at liberty to go to work for them
selves, instead of spending their time in wait
ing npon her. On the contrarr, if the epiglot
tis of tbeir dear aunt is drooping or pendent,
they will know that she mnst scon be torn from
them and they can prepare their minds for the
shock. Kominatingeonrentionsmayalso find
it beneficial to insist upon the examination
of the months of tbeir candidates, and to the
Jeffersonian qualifications forofficemay be add
ed a third, so that an affirmative may be re
quired to tbe three .questions, "Is he honest?
Is be capable? Has be a vertical epiglottis,
so that hemaynotdie in office?"

in other countries, a particular class of the

their own countrymen; here the natives, owing
to their superiority in culture of various kinds,
impose it on foreigners. But the dislike of
manual labor is really the mainspring of civi

The Journal J)iptomatiquc says: The Belch
stag of Northern Germany hasjast deoided In
furor of a unity of measurement for shipping.
This reform is the more necessary that almost
all the maritimo dues levied in the ports are
calculated on the tonnage and capacity of the
vessel, so tbat there is an imposibility to estab
lish a rigorous statistic of the commercial
movement by tea su long as each countiy shall
preserve its particular mode of measurement.
In Germany, for example, tbe calculation Is
made by the weight, and in England by tbe
space. Tbe construction of strips also suffers
from tbe confusion of the systems employed,
as an advantage is obtained by building ves
sels in a manner which, to the prejudice .of
other more important conditions, dissimulates
n portion of the capacity available for cargo.
England, to which country is due tbe initiative
of tbe reform, wishes for the English foot to
serve as tbe unity for measurement; but tha
Beicbstag very judiciously observed tbatat the
moment at which the decimal metrical system
was being adopted for measures on land, there
would be a contradiction in not admitting tbo
same for shipping. For this reason the Ger
manic Assembly has invited the Federal Coun
cil to negotiate with England and the other
maritime States to obtain the substitution of
the metre for tho English foot, as an Interna
tional system of measurement.

borax and a blowpipe secures it to its 'place.
Tbe point Is then ground on a copper wheel

by blows from a hammer. It is then trimmed
around the edges, stamped, and formed In a
