The Wiley. Brewn Casr.
TtofdtoWlBCWi* the instructions given to
the Jury by Justice Wylle, in the case of Wiley
ts Brown, a case that has attracted considera
ble attention In the community
Gentlemen of the Jury: The issues which
hare been sent from the Orphans' Oonrt and
which yon have sworn to try In this case, are
three in number:
1 Whether Emily F. Wiley, the plaintiff, wai
the child of Tillotson P. Brown.
2 Whether Tillotson P. Brown was ever mar
ried to Mrs. Elizabeth Brown, the mother of
the said Emily F. Wiley.
Whether subsequently to said marriage (if
such marriage took place,) the said Tillotson 1*.
Brown acknowledged the said Emily F. Wiley
to be his child.
These issues are questions of fact, which the
Orphans' Oonrt, not being itself competent to
determine, has sent to this court to be deter
mined by a jury?the only constitutional tri
bunal in which such questions can be tried.
Property to a large amount, as well as other
considerations of great interest and importance
to the parties, are involved in the result.
Aside from the mere pecuniary conslderatipn,
the question whether your verdict shall fix the
stigma of bastardy upon Mre. Wiley, and of
dishonor upon her mother upon the one hand,
or shall have the effectof removing in a meas
ure from the latter the stain which may have
heretofore rested upon her reputation, and en
graft upon the family of Jesse Brown as a le
gitimate shoot from a strange vine the daugh
ter ol Mrs. Brown, are considerations of the
very deepest interest to the parties on both
sides. Their feelicgs have become excited, and
all the evidence wbioh wealth or industry
could procure, and all'the exertions of most
able couneel for the respective parties have
been employed, these many days, in the trial
of this interesting case.
To enable the plaintiffs to succeed, it is nec
essary they should succeed upon each one of
the issues.
Emily F. Brown was born in this city on the
31st day of March, 1835. Her mother at that
time had never been married.
Tillotson P. Brown was married to Mrs.
Brown, the mother of Emily, on the loth No
yp^hpi*
As to 'these two facta there is no conflict in
evidence, and they have been conclusively
proved.
At her birth, therefore, Emily was undoubt
edly illegitimate.
She now claims that she subsequently be
came legitimate by the intermarriage which
took place in 1S50 between her mother and Til
louon P. Brown, by his acknowledgment after
the marriage that she was bis child, and by
the fact that she was indeed his own begotten
child.
To make out her case all of these facts must
be established.
The act of Maryland which controls the sub
ject is in the following words:
"If any man shall.have one or more children
by any woman whom he shall afterwards
marry, such child or childrea, if acknowledged
by the man, Bball, In virtue of such marriage
and acknowledgment, be hereby legitimated,
and capable in law to inherit ana transmit In
heritance as if born in wedlock."
In making your inquiries in this case, you
will probably And It convenient, as well as
logical, to pursne them in the following order:
1st. The marriage;
2d. The acknowledgment subsequent to mar
riage: and
3d. The fact ol paternity.
As to the first, the marriage, there is now no
room for controversy.
As to the second: the acknowledgment after
the marriage, required by the act ol Assembly.
The acknowledgment must be thaffche was his
child?not an adopted child, but his own child?
his own offspring.
The acknowledgment to be valid must have
been habitual, deliberate, and in the face of the
nmia. it may nave been by language, by
writing, by his conduct, and by his treatment
of her.
1 will not say thathis declarationsmusthave
been absolutely uniform on this subject. If at
any time, from caprice, or with a view of car
rying out some particular object, involving
i gain or loss on his part, or other advantage, he
occasionally denied that she was his child, you
will weigh these declarations or conduct
against those of an opposite character, and de
cide for or against the acknowledgment as you
may find the preponderance of the evidence to
incline the scale.
If there was no intention on the part of Til
i lotson P. Brown, after the marriage, to ac
knowledge her as his own ehild, before the
world, it will be your duty to find the issue
for the defendant.
But ii you find, from the evidence, that this
acknowledgment was made, your nextiuquiry
will be as to the paternity of Emily, which is
the last and most important inquiry in the case.
If Tillotson P. Brown, did in fact, after bis
1 marriage to her motheT, acknowledge the child
as his. such acknowledgment is nevertheless
not conclusive against the defendants. He
may show notwithstanding, that such was
not indeed the fact. But on a question of pa
ternity, his acknowledgment, if you find such
to have been made, would be a fact of great
weight, which it would require very strong
evidence on the other side to overcome. I will
not say it would create a presumption or es
stoppel against the defendant, for the weight
of evidence belongs to yourselves to decide.
The Oourt can instruct you as to points of law
only.
Even in the case of a child bcrn in wedlock
acknowledgment on the part of the reputed
lather is not conclusive. its legitimacy may
be called in question in the courts, and collat
eral h<sirs may show by evidence that although
it was born in wedloca, and had even been ac
knowledged by its reputed father to be his
own child, that in point of fact it had actually
been begotten by another man.
The old law of England teas that unless the
absence of the reputed father beyond seas could
be shown, about the period of possible concep
tion, the presumption was conclusive in favor
of legitimacy. But in modern times the courts
have relaxed the rule, and the fact may now
be investigated by means of evidence in regard
to all the circumstances of the case.
On this question, whether Tillotson P.
Brown was the lather of Emily F. Wiley, you
have heard a very large amount of evidence
on both sides. Much of it is conflicting, and
not a little absolutely incredible. It is your
task to compare, silt, weigh, and consider it
all. The presumption in the first place, is that
every witness will speak the truth. But if
you have discovered in the course of this pro
tracted trial that witnesses have contradicted
themselves in material points, or that their
evidence is opposed by other evidence in the
canse the truth of which you cannot doubt,
tbona witnesses are unworthy of your belief.
It conld not, however, he expected! that wit
nesses of the most unimpeachable credit called
upon to testify, after the lapse of thirty years,
should all agree with each other In the circum
stances surrounding any transaction; and the
fact is no disparagement of their integrity, if
their testimony be irreconcileable In regard to
immaterial circumstances of the case. Indeed
were they to exhibit a perfect concurrence in
every particular, the fact would be almost
conclusive evidence of their corruption. But
in every trial there are a lew main oontrolling
questions as well of fact as law; and in regard
to those of fact the witness must concnr, else
it will be the duty of the jury te decide between
them, and give credit to those whose state
ments they believe to be most consistent with
other undoubted facta, and the nature of things.
Witness, also, may be equally honest, but not
equally intelligent. The judgment, powers of
observation, and memory of one, may be great
ly superior to those of another with whose
testimony his is in conflict. In such case the
testimony of the former would outweigh the
evidences of many witnesses of the latter des
cription. Evidence ought to be weighed, not
counted by numbers.
Then you are to consider the interest, the
passions, the prejudices of other witnesses. It
will sometimes happen that a witness has al
lowed himself to become so concerned in the
result of a case, either from feelings of friend
ship and affection on the one side, or by malice
and hatred to the other side, that it beoomes
impracticable be should state the naked truth
in his testimony. Such evidence, even if not
absolutely and corruptly false, is entitled to
receive but little consideration at your hands.
Finally, it is not to be denied that witnesses
are often corruptly false; and in the present
case it is for you to say whether any such have
been examined. II a witness has proved him
sell willtnHy false in any one particular, the
his testimony?the whole of it?is unworthy of
vour belief-, And you may even go further
than this, gentlemen, and hold the party re
sponsible who has sought, knowingly, to sus
tain his cause through the instromeatality of
perjury, by finding your verdict fbr the other
lide.
Questions of fact, gentlemen, belong to the
jury. This court is not authorised, nor to It
dtspcsed, to Invade yonr province by com
ment in* upon the evidence.
