If the parish udges ot required to be law ers, and they are Sse no reason why an oicer called "olerk ae ourt" should beinferior in legal capvcl o one called "paris age." I have no de to east any unctuerefleetione on our parish some of them are learned in the law eneral satisfaction; most of them seat and men of average intelligence. onfess their efforts to comprehend ltrieacles of the law and to apply it to the as disclosed by the evidences, at times be ludlorous.

But to offee this astitution and law should be so modifle 1 the ctass of offenses named the decisilon Sbe final. ypeoplep, and particularly the colored would, however, view with alarm any at to vest criminal jurisdiction, without ap Sa single judge.

The idea that these bodies must be týoqmposed of numbers eoual to the entire Loa al ature seems based wholly on custom without '-y solid foundation in reason.

It is cortatinly very simple, only r('tuir Senh branch of the Legislature to pass the proposed amndmllents by a two-thirds vote, nd, if ratified by a malljorty of the voters, they bscome part of the constitution, Although this mode is very simple and at nldod with but l tlIe oxpense, it is questionable whether it is the wisest and best. The truth is. x eople. as a rule, know but little about State titutions, and seenm quite Indifferent about t!n on nmendments submitted to them. The atture is a body chosen for other purposes framing constitutions, and their action oeuld not ilhave the advantage of that calm niboratiton and thorough investigation that Would be expected from at body of nmen con `.etd spctially for that purpose, nor would eir atlon fave tihe same weight and influence #t the people. do not know who is entitled to the credit. of t suggresting this new mode of forming constitutions.
