Editur Sentinel: I hav had
anuther inturvioo with mi garjian
anacordin tu promis put yu in
purseshun ov his opiniun on Law.
"Law, mi yung frend," sed he,
''is the gratestinstitooshun ov our
cuntry; the manestay ov our pros
perity, an the sheat anker ov the
purlitishian. Law will enabul the
skilfool practishuner tu du ana
thin, frum the lowust tu the hi
est offis ov the stait are all opun tu
the lawyer. Law is the nife that
opuns the oistur fur the lucky
lawyer. The peepel ar like Bas
com'a mule; the law is the whip
an the lawyer holds it. The grate
ambishun ov mi life wus tu be 'a
lawyer, i honor Law. If it warent
fur the law ov Mosus what wud
becum ov the Jues? If it hadent
bin fur Coke an Blackstone whar
wudFnglan be? an if it warent
fur our moddurn lawyer, what
wud becum ov us? what wud be
cum ov rhe mastur minds ov the
age? whar wud Hall, Sweeney,
Tweed an Conoly be?" Here i
mildly remarked that i had herd
it publickly staitid that if it had
ent bin fur the lawyers those gen
telmen wud be in the stait prisun.
"buppos thay war," he anserd,
"them lawyers wud git them out
agin. But thay never coodgitthar
ecksep justis had a haninit; an
let me tel you, yung man, Law an
justis ardifturent things. Furegs
ampul: two wimmin, Missis Mug
gins an Missis Miggle keap chikr
ins, and liv in ajoinin howsis;
Missis Mugginses roostur gose fur
Missis Miggieses chikins, an Mis
sis Miggles cum tu the resku. Mis
sis Muggins follers soote, an the
2 wimmin git in 1 anuthers wull
and mak the fur fli. The kase is
brot intu Kort. Now, ana purlis
Judge ott tu be abui tu settel that
kase in 5 minnits by flnening each
$10 an sen em abowt thar biznis,
if it wus justis that wus wantid.
But no; the wimmin hav got
lawyers; 1 of em jumps up ap
maks A grate speach, bringen in
the amcrifcan Eegul and the rites
ov his client, an demans A jury,
an ses its the L.iw. That settels
the qusdiion. Thay hav A jury;
the jury is sworn tu fine out bi the
evidense whoo wus in the rong in
that thar roostur war, an then the
wsrbegins. Each lawyer givs his
vuVshun ovttiekase.an then maks
out his opponent A blessed no-such-thing,
in gentelmanly lan
guage, acordin tu Law. The jury
ar warnd" that the all-seaing Eye
ov providense is ankshiously
wachin thar vurdick in this here
roostur kase; thar gude name as
cityzuns, thar honnor as gentel
men, thar prospecks ov eturnal
happynes arinvolved in this chik
in fite. The jury is then sentencd
to be confind until thay proove by
thar vurdick whoo hs dun all the
dammage. Bi this time the jury
hav got thing so mixed that fur
the life ov em thay cannot tell
whether it wus the chignon ov 1
ov the wimmin thatsufferd or the
roostur. So thay sit and squabbel
all nite ovur it. In the raornin thay
ar discharged, anc thay go homo
fealin that thayhav bin punished
fur bejamorikan eityzuns and
furhaviii Alconschience. Anuther
jury is called, an the kase layed
befour em. But havin A lively
fear ov A nite in jale, thay pockit
thar conschience an fine A vur
dick, an go home, fealen consius
ov havln dun thar dooty as city
zuns, an that thar happynes in the
wurld to cum is sekured. Law is
a grate institooshun. I wud strong
ly advize yu tu studdy fur it. Tak
A koarse ov lessuns in the Jeffer
sun Markit Purlis Kort, aftur that
if thar is anathin yu want tu kno
an cant fine it out, yu ar not fit tu
be A lawyer. Tu suckseed in this
biznis yu wil require abowt the
same amount ov talent that wud
set up A Chatham street Mok Auc
shunier. At l.time it wusthotne
sesary tu be edookated, an tu ack
on what wus called gude moral
principuls. But that time has gon.
Thar may be sum bv that school
living still, but thay can nevur
suckseed as purlitishuns in the
present age." Here the old gen
telman becam exostid; i admin
istered the neaded restorative an
retired, grateful for the sage ad
vice ov mi reverrcd frend.
I am now atteuding ail the reli
gious convenshuns, missionary so
cieties an Purlis Korts, an in A i
few weeks hope tu be qualifide fur
the Church o Bar. In the event
ov yure peepel neading A Dele

me, as the deerest wish ov mi
hart is tu aurve mi cuntry.

By a recent Act of Congress, a
copy of which is in my possession,
a more efficient mode has been
provided for the collection of
claims against the Government for
depredations committed by the
Having superior facilities for
the prosecution of such claims,
and much actual experience in the
business, I can, with some confi
dence, say to my fellow-citizens
who have suffered loss of property
by these lawless tribes, that where;
the proof is ample, there is no-
goo reasonwhy each claim should
not Be paid. Within a very short
time the rules and regulations to 1
be prescribed by the Secretary of"'
the Department named in the-Act
of Congress referred to, will reach
me, when I shall be ready to prose
cute any claim that may be placed
in my hands for that purpose.
