The Grand Jury plication.
U JIM J I."
It, has been proposed by tho bar of
New?. York, ? to modify our juridical
hyatfehj-by abolishing Grand Juries. The
evils' hud total prostitution of this part
of11 the criminal procoduro havo becouio
60 tji^rkcd and so apparent that its utter
abrogation is demanded by men whose
duties ami ;ivocation place thorn iu a
position to realize its baleful features
Instead bf'being as was intended by the
_ct i:. j nj ?? '
English Common Law, a subordinate
part in that admirable System of critniu
al jurisprudence, in this country, this
hi dy seems to have constituted itself u
spcofal Vigilance Committee for \A\afer
rating out and punishmcut of offenders
i.t haS become an requisition, indeed,
ig the Spunioh sense, with a vengeance
Like tho famous "Kegulutora" of the
early days of this proviucc, it has as
sumed supremo and awful functions and
aitempts to "right all wrongs" in and of
iteejf. The rest of tho Court are but
appendages to. this secret nud fearful
tribunal. Now when it is remembered,
that all trials and condemnations of this
Auto da fe are entirely exparte, that is
on hearing hut one side of every ques
tion^ or case, aud that, its operations arc
veiled in mysterious aud niasonik
secresy, it is appallingly evident that
there is not much chanoc for justice
but n1 fearful margin for oppression. An
injury that no subsequent vindication
can heal may be done to an innoccut
sensttivo aDd defenceless man.
, A\ hat a mighty and fearful engine to
gfatity personal, political, or religious
spleen and malice ! Especially has this
Inquisition become the last weapon iu
the hands of a defeated and maddened
political party, which concentrates here
all the poison of its malice to strike iu
sidious blows at its opponents. This
prostitution of a par/ *?f the criminal
system has rcudered tho Grand Jury as
it uow is, a blot nud a'defect in the
administration of justice.
I n ' Charleston this very week the
-Grand Jury iu attendance upon the
United States Court undertook to rebuke
and browbeat the cutivc practise of thu
Court and even flatly told the Judgo
that if he showed more energy and ut
teution to his duties that things would'!
I be much hotter. So flagrant was this
proposed presentment that Judge
Bryan refused to receive it a? being
irrelevant and ont of the scope of Grand
. Juries. The offended Inquisitors after
a wards declined to bring in any report.
It is time that this question should be
investigated. It is becoming a serious
matter. Either we must accept the
proposition ? of our New York friends
: end. abolish the thing altogether ; or
? booh restrictions and definitions must?bt
placed around this holy in tho perform
anco of its functions that will eud its
career as an engino of oppression aud
.. malice and reduce it back to its pro
- Vinte as an harmonious and subordinate
part of the criminal system.
The remarkable uon presentment of
the Charleston Grand Jurors has caused
a deal of excitement aud some amuse
ment, from the fuct that these "good
men" and true so fur over did the thiug
aud curried their littio gnaw of spite to
a ridiculous extent. Judge Bryan read
to the inquisitors the charge of Mr.
Justice Ere hi delivered to a gaud jury
in California. We extract from Judge
Field's ohargo :
'?We therefore instruct you that your
investigations are to ho limited :
1st, To such matters as may be called
to jour attention by the Court.
2d, To sucb as way. he submitted to
your consideration by the district attor
8d, To such as may com? feo your
knowledge in the course of yous investi
gations or from your ovcu observations.
4th, To such as may come to your
knowledgo from the disclosures of your
associates made upon their own personal
cognisance supported by their oath or
"A preliminary examination et the
ticcused before a Magistrate where ho
cAft meet bis prosecutor hoe to face npd
cross examine him and the 'witnesses
produced by him, and have the benefit
of counsel, is the usual mode of initiat
ing proceedings in criminal oasea, and is
the oue which presents to the citizen
the greatest security against false accu
eutioua from any quarter, and this mode
ought not to be departed from. The
charge coucludcs with these words :
"Wc have been led,.gentlemen, to
give thoc instructions upon the nut tire
of jour duties and the limits to the
sphere of your investigations, because
the impressions widely prevails1 that that
the institution of tho grand jury has
outlived its usefulness, hii impression
which has been created I Tora a disregard
of Ihoso limits and tho facility wi.h
which it has unfortunately often beau
used as an instrument for tho gratifica
tion of private malice."
C liifif Justice CUnwc Dead.
The news hah by this time been circu
lated through this broad continent that
the oiiiiuout Jurist Judge Chuso, Chief
Justice of the Supreme Court of tho
United States is dead. During the past

the honor in which he was held,
Saturday lust, May 10th, was the an
niversary of tho death of Stuu-.wull
Jackson. The day has become a holy
day with a brave and conquered people,
nnd has been consecrated by the women
of the South to the memory of all those
Who with the great soldier, "have crossed

Ou this day tho graves of the Con
