The Spring Tarm of tba Court* of Oyer and Ter miner and (tenoral Near ion* of tbe Fear» and Jail Delivery, also an adjourned Session of the Or phans' Court, for this countr, were opened this morning at 11 o'clock. Tbn names of tba Grand and Petit Juries .were called, gad George W. Sparks, ol this city, was appointed by the Court foreman of the Urand •lL regular charge of tbe Court to the Grand Jury was delivered by Judge Wale«, wbo stated K waa tbe custom to charge the Jury at the Spring Term enly, instead of at both Tartnt as formarly. Judge Waite spoke of tbe ancient origin of Grand Juries, whioh hare existed time out ol alud. Their object being to protect the innocent and bring the guilty to punishment; reed tbe pro visions of tbe Ü. S. and Delaware Constitutione for trial hr indictment, and the mode prescribed in the latter for drawing of the Graud Juries Their action was necessary before sny one could lie tried for a criminal offense. It was llieir duty to discover all relations of justice and of law, and auy one of tliom knowing auch facts was hound to present them to bis fellow jurors. All indictmenta sent to them by the Attorney General were to be endorsed cithor "true lull," or "iguored." Their deliberations waie secret, to bo aided by instruc tions from the Attorney General, or the Court neresaary. The rule for their guidance was "to iuquire whether there is sufficient cause to require a party to stand a trial before a jury of his peurs." Twenty-four graud jurors warn summoued, but not more than 23 nor lass than 12 sworn, hut no indictment was good unless fourni by twalvs. Ho that a porsou charged with a crime was heard by 21 of hia peers before conviction No crime was so old or stale as to prevent indictment, even though refused by a funner jury. Chapters 1215 to 133, inclusive, of tba Uev. Code iu crimes and misdemeanors ware referred to. Homicide wae .Mined, and tbe different degrees of murdertn tbe tfrst and sucond degree under the Statute, with I lie respective punishments explaiucd at longlb. Murder required a mrlinous intent, and if the in tent were to kill, it was murder iu tbe first de gree; if not intent to hill, murder in second de gree. Manslaughter involved no malicious intent. Express malice was the deliberate deeigu to kill another. Implied nr constructive malice is a con struction of facts, is from the commission of un unlawful act which results iu death. Justifiable and excusable homicide Were also explained. The .fudge further charged the Court upon finding in dictments in cases of nuisances and misdemean ors indictable at common law. A nuisance waa such u use of one's property as rendered it offen sive to rltisone and in violation of the laws of the State. It need uet be injurious to health; suffi cient if offensive, e. g. bad smells. No length of time, not even twenty years, will justify the con tinuance of a nuisance. The Mayor of W dmington, Sheriff, Coroner, Justiceo of tbe Teste and county Constables re quired by law to attend the court on the first day thereon were successively called. Slats vs. Vincent O. Hill, indicted at Novem ber Term 1872, tor obstructing u public road, nolle pros, on payment ot coats by defendant.
