WW OB Qf IjHa*—» mini older COlUmUuivi.
The r__a|_—ture has made a long stride
forward in tiie matter of simplifying tin
criminal and civil jurisprudence of the
times. At its last session an act wa»
passed which permits, the prisoner ar
raigned for murder to testify in bis own
behalf, and the beautiful workings of
this system have been recently most
strikingly exempliiieil in a trial of whicli
it is reported :
" The testimony of witnesses left 110
doubt that the prisoner killed the person
alleged; but, as tbo deed was done in
the dark, no one but himself could know
whether it was in self-defence or not.
The remarkable simplicity and apparent
truthfulness of the prisoner, his prompt
and ready answers, freedom from all
contradiction and equivocation, and, in
tact, every test of truth, wen* so .strik
ing, that the court, jury, and the crowd ,
Of listeners were ail convinced (bat lie
Was fully justiiied in the killing. With
out his own testimony, However, he
would probably Lave been severely dealt
with by the law."
.Notwithstanding the old common
law maxim, thai it is better "ninety
nine guilty persons should escape than
that onsiuiioceut man shouldsulier, "and
tho various guarantees that every oppor
tunity snail be uilowed the prisouer to
establish his innocence, and thai be shall
always be gtv«_ the 6«ne_t of the least
doubt in regard to his guilt, we find that
Tuvariatiiy thu prosecution is shown (
more favor than tho defence; if in no
other way tjian that of having the clos
ing argument and permitting the court
to sum up tho fads ami influence the
jury by the expression of an opinion
with regard to tbe guilt or innocence ol
the accused. There uro a groat many very
odd customs and notions that forma part
of the common law, which might be dis
pensed with now, aud which, having
ceased to have the f. ~*c e they once pos
sessed, ought to Vn abolished. Society
has changed e llU , elv wU ,., n the las(
century or tv, 0) bul tho ol( , )ega , f()ni)
and the. enigmatically, not to say fool
ish, language in which they arc obscured
nave undergone no alteration. We still
retain the words and wisdom of mack- 1
stone; and the language of the law is
now as diflicult to comprehend iv many I
instances, even to those learned therein,
as the language of the Choctaws or Chi
nese. We sec no gootl reason why it
cannot be simplified und made plain.
Our statutes, forms, indictments, legal
documents, rules of evidence, and every
thing connected with the science, which
is called the perfection of wisdom, can
certainly be reduced to good modern
English and made as intelligible to the
most common understanding as the
simplest incident of life told in words iSf
one syllable. Discard till the dilDcjities
of ancient Latin construction and all
the iterations, reiterations a; a d superflui
ties, and let tiie simple l__f_ _t stated ,„
brief-, comprehensive mid unmistakable
language. We think the concession
made to the prisoner, which permits him
to be his own Witness, a very important
and a very just one, und that it would
be well to adopt it everywhere. The
object of all trials is to arrive at the truth
and all the truth, and the jury being the
judges of the evidence, we cannot see
how the ends of justice can be defeated
by examining everybody who may know
anything in regard to tin; matter in con
troversy; and certainly the party accused
ought to know better than any one else
•»w far he is implicated, and whether j
he be guilty or innocent. Hi* statements,
of course, would always be taken with
considerable allowance, ami the charac
ter and manner of tbe man would have
as much to do as his testimony in | H fJt_,
cueing tho verdict of the jury. We trust
therefore, thatthese important ameliora
tions in criminal jurisprudence will n o t
be conflned to any particular .State, or
locality, but that the attention of our own
legislators may be attracted to it; that
Jaw will be looked upon every where
more in the light of science,
and our present system be remodeled, im
proved, reformed ami simplified to such
an extent that it will no longer lie a mys
tery, and tlnit it may conform to reason
and common .sense, and lie made so plain
that every man who can read aud write
may be his own lawyer.
We cannot find time to answer the
tsttera sent us from various quarters, in
quiring as to the best region wherein to
settle at the South. We can only say
generally tnot there aro inviting lands
to be had at low prices iv every Southern
State, and that we consider them all
•llgible for settlement, from lower Dela
ware down. We could not advise a
"Western man to come East iv quest of a
good bi. ni 1..11, nor au Eastern man to
go West, since the chances are good on
the lower Mississippi as well as on the ,
James, the Santee and the Savannah.
