The only d'llity inl the , gentile.

I tcink that- the law was properly, stat
eatyyan, wheni i yn were itiformed . that
a.,ftlcar armed with a ivarrInt ior the
/rest. of a persdsaacensed of' felody, has
/no right to take tho life of tho accised,
unless there ibr aich resist.ance to- hisan
-thority, tliat the act -becomes absolutely
ni/tecessary. Ut e-very,'citize'n htas a right,
wthere a felony has been 'conimted to'
arrest the felon: Trhe only 'ditfet uch
b etwe'n hinm and ttbo offlieer is tnis that
if hie-anpts1.0 artesd a party acesed1
neenlsid wvith' fe'lmy, not.ibe'ingo airmed
autthority, whnet evee tie does
is at his ow peril,- If it be. provialthus
the persont arrested is ho felon, thten is
t ho citizen guilty of a - breachI of Iteo
peace, and it in tihe proess of .theo arrest
3h the aconsed bo kIlled, tito citizen bet
comnes guilty of miurdei . If' on the otiv
or hanud, it, should-appe[nr that the piarty
to be ar-rested. was himself' a murderer'
and( was killed ini the -act oIf.arrest, thenm
the qutestioni cometis up, what- degrco of
guilt shall attiach Lo the citizen.
The Lawi has been tread by the~ learned
conus~el, who, had so ably andi cJoitly
deifentid othiese unfortunato men. Youj will
perceive that in otne of the authioritics upe
onwhtich great relinnco is placed, it is ata
tcd that privalo persons may arrest.
In tho lanugiago thee used, "n indict
met found,is good cant of' ari-est, bf
private person:!, if it may bo mnade with.
iom, thle dleath of' the fa loni" bii , is said
that if rte f't hnn be killed, their 'astifia..
(ion must deuprnd upon the fatdt of' the
parties guilt, wich it, wiill be'utirn bent
utpon I them to imaike ont ; othey wiso, they
will be guilty of manshingifter,
It will be veisy danigerous, gentlemon of
theajnry, to allow eve-ry nt, who hearp
thant felony hias.been comtnt ed, tojndke
whether there is a nOcV. .ty for himt'.tif
arrest tht suppiosd elon, or to take Is
life,. If' thils wero allowe'd, itere wvotid
a great unmber of casos ofntiurder which
conld not he reached..att'all, S 'uch e
privilego might hte mtdi~ an egense (br a

v lien an ofilcer of the lawv is sent.(orthIi
to arrest a felon who has .shocked: it
mahity by the cnormity of his oflbh00,
he is compelled, by the law, to. be cau
lions how lie takes human lif'er le la
not ;mtthorized to do so eI~ipy becantsa
the felon flees. Buit, .whenf private oiti

how they shed hmnan blood, becanso
they tako upori t1m111'1ilves a very Ilighl
respoisibiliy. They taki'eill the risks
61nd all the consequeicils.
Now, I have no dobiiht that tho pris.
oners at the bar, acted 'viih perfect con.
ecient).iotstiess iin this imat t er. I ida not
think tiey pmrsmed that.nugro with tho
hkople of' reward. Thev were siiply In
formed, that a horrible mrd',r h-id been
perpert rated, aind a wholo fmi: imly'throwni
into distress;.and under the generois
impihe of youth, they weit forward to
arrest, the imrderer. It is for you to
say, whiether0r they exercised 'in'that nr
rest, a degree o violonce Which was not,
iaranted iby the law. It is for you to
'iay, by- your verdiot, whether tIese
yo;ulg mIIe, in attempting to mak1(e tlis
arrest-, were antihoriied to jilelge, vje't-.
or theys-hould take life, in order to top
the muanl who was ruInning.
I do not find fault with the 1..arned
eCaunsel, who, so forcibly aild hl(illntly
has urged thiit a jury have the r g'it to
judgo of the law and tih fict. I thinI
it, likely ihat, the old barons of 1n'gh'it n,
intended inl their Magyna Charta, t ia
.the jlury- . t.. peers of ai mii should
possess Ith(e right. to j 'lilae of 11111 ha w
.and the evidence I and that, when' they
wvrciett that charter froiti the tyranI
