No Time Like the Old Tims.
ho. w. holmib.
There is no time like the old time, when
you and I were young,
When the buds of April blossomed and
the birds of spring-time sung!
The garden's brightest glories, by sum?
mer suns are nursed,
But oh, the sweet, sweet violets, the
flowers that opened first!
There Is no place like the old place,
where you and I were born;
There we luted first our eyelids on the
splendors of the mom.
From the milk-white breast that warmed
us, from the olingin g arm that bore,
When the dear eyes glistened o'er us that
will look on us no morel
There is no friend like the old friend
who has shared our morning days,
No greeting like his welcome, no homage
like his praise;
Fame is the scentless sun-flower, with
gaudy crown of gold,
But friendship is the breathing rose,
with sweets in every fold.
There is no lore like the old love that we
courted in our pride;
Though our leaves are falling, falling,
and we're fading side by side,
There are blossoms all around us with
the colors of our dawn,
And we live in borrowed sunshine when
the light of day is gone.
There are no times like the old times?
they shall never be forgot!
There is no place like the old place?
keep green the dear old spot!
There are no friends like our old friends
?may heaven prolong their Uvea!
There are no loves like our old loves?
God bless our loving wives!
Thx Cousts or EniNBuaon. ? An Edin?
burgh (Scotland) correspondent of the
Phckrtx writes as follows:
The administration of justice between
subject and subject and the State and
the subject assumes, under different spe?
cies of government, a variety of forms;
yet how essentially the means may differ
?the ends to be attained are closely
allied. The Roman Deoemini may de?
vise the laws of their country in ten
tables, and have them dispensed under
the edict of the Emperor or the jude
einne of the praetor; the Anglo-Saxon
Parliament may enact its statutes and ad?
here to the customs of the realm, and
have them awarded through the Queen's
Bench, Ex chequer o r the Bo use of Lords;
the Scotch College of Justice may pre?
scribe rules for the government of its
eitissns, administered through different
functionaries, still the fundamental prin?
ciples of all law are identical?the true
aim being the protection of rights and
the redress of wrongs, public and pri?
vate. The Parliament House, used be?
fore the union of England and Scotland,
for the deliberation of her legislative
assemblies and the prooceedings of her
courts, occupies a central and command?
ing position on the High street of Edin?
burgh. The large hall known as the
Outer House, is some 122 feet in length
and 48 feet in brsadth, with a roof of
oak, arched and most artistically finished,
containing statues of Henry Dun das, the
Lord of Melville and Lord President
Blair; besides its walls are bid from view
by the oil paintings of eminent lawyers
and men of letters, like Lord Brougham,
David Hume and others, whose writings
have not only moulded and modelled
the thoughts of Britain, but hare had a
corresponding share in directing the
rising hopes and thoughts of the peoples
of other countries. At the South end of
the Outer House are four small chambers
or courts, in which the Lords Ordinary
sit They are similar to the Roman Ju
dices?determiners of questions of law
and fact, quasi referees, before whom
motions are made by the advocates for
the dosing of docketed cases and days
assigned for their determination. The
points in the cases are brought to light,
and the Lord passes judgment from
which an appeal may be taken to the
Division Courts, where the opinion is
reviewed in cases of great magnitude
and unusual importance. Adjoining
these courts is the High Court of Justi?
ciary?the supreme criminal tribunal of
Scotland?presided over, like the others,
by Lords of established learning in the
law, and aided by the Solicitor-General
and Dean of Faculty, who are appointed
by the Crown to hold their offices dnring
good behavior. The mode of rendering
verdicts by the juries differs somewhat
from the American system, in that the
majority con render "guilty" on violent |
and probable proof; on slight proof,
"not proven;" and on hypothetical or
Soundless presumptions, "not guilty."
pon the first, punishment is certain to
be indicted; upon the second, though
there is no corporal punishment, yet the
accused carries always with him the
stigma that he escaped the law by the
"skin of his teeth; and upon the third,
there is entire liberation from all guilt.
"Crimes," says a writer, "are more effect?
ually prevented by the certainty than
the severity of punishment." In Scot?
land, these two elements in the penal
code are uniquely blended, and, as a
matter of course, neither are the jails
crowded with prisoners, nor the courts
burdened with their conviction or ac?
quittal. It is a nation's love of law, its
attachment to the public weal, its peace?
ful and benevolent spirit, its love of
virtue, that makes it strong and respect?
ful; and nowhere more than in Scotland
is the maxim, "honesty is the best po?
licy," more faithfully observed, and its
breach more rigorously punished. Her
Jiublio officers have no other object be
ore their eyes but the proper adminis?
tration of their individual trusts, for
there is every inducement offered to sti?
mulate honorable conduct?none to
cause them to act otherwise. It has
always been the policy and wisdom of j
British legislation to inculcate lessons of
industry into the masses, to engender '
feelings of patriotism by honoring the
achievements of men in war and in
f>eace, and to practice the intelligent,
ofty and disinterested character in all
the transactions of life. During the sit?
tings of the courts, the Outer House pre?
sents an animated scene. As all the
courts open directly into it, it affords an
agreeable promenade for counsel and
their clients, whose causes are not actu
j going on in court. Advocates, whose
hands are full of business, are seen hur?
rying from court to court, while clients
and agents, whose cases have just been
called, may be noticed pressing their
way through the crowd, looking for their
counsel, for fear their suit msy receive
some detriment during their absence. It
is quite a novel sight, according to Ame?
rican simplicity, to witness the formal
requisitions of the courts. None are
allowed to sit, exoept with the sceptre or
crown at its back; while the presiding
Lords are bound to don the red robes of |
office, and the advocates their black silk
Siwns, each with their white wigs, some*
ing like the4 'toga suits" of the Romans.
Notwithstanding the novelty produced,
they undoubtedly give a demeanor and
bearing which does not fail to command
respect and attention from all classes. In
considering the treasures of the legal
Srofession of Edinburgh, the Advocates'
ibrary is the most precious of them eil,
containing, ss it does, 150,000 volumes
and the manuscripts to 1,700. The va?
riety is quite equal to the numbers, as it
is one of the fire libraries that receives
from Stationers' Hall a copy of every
book that is printed in the united king?
dom of Great Britain and Ireland. By
private contributions and the zeal of its
members, Urge additions are annually
made, and the end of its collections can?
not be seen. The 8ygr>.et Library is also
in the Parliament House, and is pecu?
liarly rich in the department of British
and Irish history. It has some 50,000
volumes, and, like the one before men?
tioned, is continually swelling in num?
bers. The Advocates' Library belongs
to the Faculty of Advocates; the Sygnet
Library is the property of the writers to
the Sygnet The former are pleaders in
court; the latter are office-lawyers. The
metaphysician may come here and quench
his .thirst for theoretical science in the
rationalism of Germany; the foUoxcer of I
the Cross may walk in the meadows of j
literature and espy the bloom of the
Rose of Sharon; the classical scholar
may gather with Plato under the aca?
demic groves, wander with Horace along
the mossy banks of the Po, and climb
.with Homer the muse-haunted summits
of Grecian verse, and the wise men of |
all climes may be guided by these fixed
stars to the treasures of wisdom and
knowledge, unexplored by human re?
search and sagacity. W. H. F.
The Boston reporters rise to the oc?
casion once in a while, as in the follow?
ing account of a meeting of the Radical
club: "Then a matron made for kisses,
in the lovelist of dresses, and with eyes
that shone more brightly than the dia?
monds she wore, spoke In tones of lute?
like sweetness, words of such exceeding
fitness, phrases of such happy neatness,
that we clapped our hands for more, as
with grace she left the floor."
