Ought Our Jury System to be
'?Judlco? Est Jua Dlccro, Non D.iro."
Tho matter presented to our
Brand Jury at the recent term of
Court by his Honor Judge Hudson,
in reference to our system of trial
by Jury, which prevail.-; throughout
the United States, and his extra
judicial proposition to change if. in
South Carolina, demands and
* should receive more than an Ex
parte hearing, such as was given
to'his Honor's rccunmcndulion by
the very intelligent body of gentle
men composing the Jury to which
his remarks were addressed.
His argument in approaching the
irVory radical proposition which ho
s'flnalJy submitted to their consid
eration, was ingenious, and well
Calculated to excite; tho'::' attention.
.It seems from his manner of pre*
Mentation, that he was very iiulig
li.'mwit because of the wrongs inflicted
upon Juries in seme localities,
"whore they tiro locked up a.sil they
were tho criminals to be published,
and deprived ad interim of every
Comfort, "candle light and water

I .life or liberty, diameter, reputation,
Or of less importance, of thoh fd

[ own rasher dishonest tic!, or tho
false accusation of their enemies,
fallen into the hands of the law.

astounding proposition, that
all that makes our trial by Jury
valuable, or worth preserving,
should bo taken from It, viz: a

and lawful men of tho vicinage, be
fore any citizen of tho State can bo
legally deprived of either, life, lib
erty, reputation or property! And
of couiso the change would also
carry with it tlio converse, viz: a
majority of any particular Jury em
panelled to try tho most notorious

nounce him legally innocent and
turn him loose again to prey upon
society, over tlio protest and in

Anything less than tho unani
mous verdict of twelve men known
to our law as a Jury, who, upon be
ing severally called will answer
they liavo agreed to tlio finding hb
presented to the Court, is a radical
change in a systom hoary with nge.
Is tho country ready for it?
Wo might without being guilty
of any disrespect to one whom wo
regard as an able expounder of (ho
law, very justly criticise his viola
tion of oiii!of the old maxims which
appears at (he head of tills article,
viz: "It is the duly of a judgo to
declare tholaw and not (o make it."
Neither making in hia decisions or
judgment wliero statutes und pre
cedents must cotlttol, nor by any
A convention of judges bringing
to notice of the legislative depart
nioutof government, any defects in
the law which they have been
called upon to administer and sug
gestive of amendments to old laws
or the enactment of new ones to
moot the requirements of justice In
their jurisdiction, Is eminently
proper und commendable. But an
address lo the public of each county
at the opening of Court, while os
tensibly charging the Grand Jury,
condemnatory of tlio law or laws
which it is their solemn duty lo
administer Impartially, or suggest
ing changes which strike nt the
very foundation upon which the
temple of justice is erected, as to
(he ascertainment of fact, is of
doubtful propriety, and to somo
mln is would sconi out of place.
But let that pass, with the simple
further remark, that a judgo on the
bench covered with the robe of his
olllco and invested with the power
incident thereto, Is a different per
son In legal contemplation, from
the mere man he is, us an individ
ual member of society. That there
are .some things which he may with
great propriety do. as a mere citi
zen, and considered as a mere citi
zen acting and speaking as a citi
zen by those who may see or hear
hi in, which he may not properly
do or say, while sitting ns a minis
tor of tho law, in a place set apart
as sacred to the administration of
'?A judgo should bo a man so learned;
So full of equity, bo nob'.o, tonotablo;
In tho process of his lite so innocent;
In tho inaUngO of his olllco so incorrupt;
In the passagos ot state so wlso; In
AUeotlon of his count ry so religious;
In all his services to tho King so
I'orlunuto and exploring, as envy
Itsolf cannot aeouso, or malloo vit'tato."
In our next we propose lo glance
nt the history of trial by jury us it
has come down to us through tlio
ages, and endeavor to show that a
change is not only not needed to
promote the ends of justice, but
would bo a Stop backward towards
an ago of tyranny and oppression.
I trot lurto on l.owell.
It lias ah.-a/s seemed to me that his
early success, ns well as his strength, lay
in his keen instinctive insight into tho
personal character of tbo New Fng
Innder. Ho had by no means created
the "Yankee" in literature; neither had
lie been tho Hint to use tho Yankee
dialect. Judge 1 Inlihurton, a writer
of more unqualified English blood, bad
already drawn ".Sam Slick," but it was
the Yankee regarded from the "out
side"?as lie was wont to aggressively
present lihusolf to the neighboring
"Blue No os"?and although tbo pic
ture was not without occasional grace
ful and poetic touches, tho poetry and
grace wns felt to be Judgo Haliburton's,
rather than Sam Slick's.
It may Intel est the curious reader to
compare tlio pretty proso fancy of Sam
Slick's dream with the genuine ring of
"Hosen Biglow's Courting." Dr. Judd's
"Margaret"?a novel, I fear, unknown
to most englishmen?was already a
New Fuglnnd classic when Hosea Dig
low was born. It was n dialect ro
mance, so provincial as to be almost un
intelligible to even the average Ameri
San reader, but while it was painted with
a coarse Flemish fidelity, itsinolodrama
was conventional and imported. It re
mained for Mr. Lowell alone to dis
cover and portray the real Yankee,
that wonderful evolution of tho Fng
lish Puritan, who had shaken oil the
forms and superstitions, but never tho
deep consciousness of God,-? Brot Harte
