-It ha-j been judicially established in the j i
Massachusetts Supreme Coal, by a recent de- t
cisi?n, that suicide ls not a t rime. One John j
Denni', it appears, was arrest *d some months
ago at Worcester on a complaint charging ,
him with the "attempt lo kill at.d murder him?
self." The Superior Court loi Jd him guilty,
but the case was can ie J to the b ipreme Court, '
which has Just decided that thei e was co guilt <
in Denn s's attempt to kili li m-=elf, on the '
ground that the "previsions o ' the general 1
statute?, in sec ion S cf chapter '.08, which are f
a revision c f the whole law on the subject of -
attempt?, do not include altem.~:s to commit .
suicide." But suppose Mr. Den lis had sue
Weded in his attempt, how, the;.', would the
Commonwealth have vindicated its outraged 1
laws?
-The London papers are getting heartily 1
sick of the Tichborne case, which daily monop- (
olizes m jen of their space. The cross-exami- .
nation of Mr. Balgent, one of the witnesses for
the plaintiff, at list accounis had lasted about ]
a fortnight, and the Spectator remarks: "Mr. .
Ballantine bas informed the court that his side j
of the evidence may be pos-iolfc done by (
Christmas, and then the defendants begin,
and then there is rebutting evidence, and then '
there will bethe Radcliffe ag inst Tichborne *
indictment-altogether, we should imagine,
about eighteen months' good hard questioning
and replying. If the press will net take meas?
ures to suppress some cf all this, we shall have i
the country clamoring for a war or a cattle j
plague, or anything to rid the journals of a >
bore which ls becoming too much for human '
nature to sustain."
-"Le Roi Carotte," the new drama which
MM. Sardou and Offenbach are writing, prom?
ises to be the success ol the season in Paris. '
One of its scenic effects will be a ballet princi?
pally composed of ladies representing varions i
specimens of the vegetable weiM. Other at- i
tractions rill be on a similar scale of surprise.
One tableau is laid in an Inn, the sign of which
s the Hungarian cock. In the inc er court e! <
tl ie hostelry, the balconh s of which tent! be- i
ueath the weight of a host of students declaim
ing revolutionary hymns, is danced a faran
dole. Suddenly the cock upon the signboard
opeDS his beak and drops from lt a lion. This
president of the zoological tribe leaps Into life
and begins devouring the ballet. The agony
of the situation is lurther complicated by the
appearance of a frog which, from infinitesimal
proportions, swells to an enormous size and
swallows up the unhappy dancing girls who
escape the gra?p of the lion. Upon this an
obus bursts in the midst ol the maddened
crowd, casting its splinters in all direct ions.
The scenery comes down in flaming morsels,
and ls replaced by the interior of a palace, in
which the necromancer Kiribibi is amusing
himself by hewing in pieces an insurgent,
whose head he dissects before t'ie audience.
In spite of this operation, however, the ex
communist goes through with a j;g.
The Ka-Klax Trials.
ID the United States Circuit Court, yester?
day, Judge Bond announced the decision of
the Court, upon the motions of Mr. Stan
berry for a new trial, and in arrest of judg?
ment, in the case of the Ku-Klux prisoners.
The Court overru'ed both motions, and the
prisoners who had been foand guilty were
sentenced to terms of imprisonment ranging
[rom five years to three months.
By this unanimous decision of the Court,
the defence are, we presume, precluded from
carrying the case to the United States Su?
preme Court upon the issues made during
the trial. Doubtless a way will be found of
obtaining the opiuion of th~ Supreme Court
upon the question whether Congress has the
constitutional right to suspend the writ of
habeas corpus in a time of profound peace,
and whether that right, if properly within
the powers of Congress, may be delegated
to the President, who may, in turn, delegate
that power to any deputy marshal or subal?
tern in the service of the United States; and,
also, upon the question whether Congress
can constitutionally give the Federal Courts
jurisdiction over silences punishable by the
laws of the States.
The whole question of the power of Con?
gress to override, at will, the organic lav?
of the Union is involved in these Ka-Klux
trials, and it is desirable that this shonld be
determined by the highest tribunal in the
land, not in order that the guilty may escape
punishment, but in order that the rights of
the whole people, North and South, may be
vindicated and maintained.
From Judge Bond we expected nothing
tetter than an implicit obedience to the
decision of his party as expressed in an Act
>f Congress. Bat we cannot refrain from
ixpressing our surprise and regret that
Tudge Bryan Bhonld, by his acquiescence in
he opinion of the Presiding Judge, prevent
,he people from obtaining, directly and
sasily, a final solution of the most important
?onstitutional question of the day.
"High" Crimes and ..Low" Crimes,
Euphemisms are always hurtful in matters
if great concern. Just ss the language of
i people furnishes a measure of its morality, ,
io is it equally true, on the other hand, that
ts language reacts upon its morality. Io a
iommunity where, for instance, larceny is
ailed misappropriation, or burglary a raid, (
he feeling against those crimes must, in ]
n time, inevitably be modified. To call a i
pade a spade is a rule of ethics as well as 1
,f_laa&oAga. Tha h&bit wbiob vioo uojyer- 1
ally bas of avoiding the real names of its (
?ts, is the homage which it pays to words. 1
iud not only is the principle we contend for
rm in respect to bread and flagrant misno. t
aers, but it applies to every misuse of terms ?
i y which misconduct escapes its full share ,
f condemnation.
What we have said is suggested by the
ashton now prevailing in Columbia of
reating and designating the frauds commit- ?
ed upon the State as "high crimes and mis- 1
?demeanors." Now there are high crimes ?
nd there are low crimes. High treason is a fl
rime and rebellion is a crime, but they are a
otb extremely respectable. They have en- j
obied families. ThereJ have been great p
unities who spoke little of an ancestor who t
ad not died npon the scaffold. But it would g
ertainly have given a Bhock to the moral
ense of that age when "high crimes" were
luch in vogue if any one had maintained "
bat performances like those of our friend B
'arker entitled one to an attainder and an \
xe on Tower Hilt Tyburn and its less %
ristocratic arrangements were thought t
;ood enough for the folk of that feather. '
."he fact is that if frauds have been commit- ri
ed on the Treasury of South Carolina, they 1
lave a plain and well-understood name in '
he criminal code. Ttey are nothing more
mr less than felonies, and among the felo- j
iles they are, by law, in express terms, put g
ipon the footing of larcenies. Aa early a3 i
827 a law was passed, by which corruption r
ind fraud of county officers were made pun- '
shable by fine and imprisonment. lu 18CC 1
he General Assembly of South Carolina (
>assed a remedial act of a more general J
icope. "Any person," says this statute,
'committing a breach of trust xclth a fraud- \
'ulent intention, shall be guilty of larceny; 1
'and so shall any person who shall hire or 1
'counsel any other person to commit a '
'breach of trust with a fraudulent intent." 1
The penalties of the crime are those of other 1
elouies, viz : Confinement in a penitentiary '
lot less than three months or more than ten
rears; hard labor, solitary confinement, fine, f
lot more than five thousand Uslars, and for- ]
nerly corporal punishment. Such ?3 the just
egl3lation which removed from the State the
.eproach of treating the theft of a loaf as a I
:rime and the theft of thousands as a mis- 1
ortune. (
Ethically, the official rogue who steals '
urgely to supply his luxury is worse than J
.he pauper who filches a little to satisfy his ?
lunger. Legally, they stand in the same
:lass. It will do positive harm to distin?
guish them in name, in tbe process to be
sought against them, or in their punishment. 1
Abolish the Fence Law,
We print to-day an able, and, to our mind, i
inanswerable letter upon the subject of the (
proposed abolition of the old fence laws. ,
There is, as far as we know, no other argu?
ment in favor of the present ruinous system
Lhan is contained in the assertion that "what
"is must be right" We hope that the Leg?
islature, upon reassembling, will give the
"No Fence" law their immediate attention,
?nd pass, at once, what may fitly be called a
measure of practical reform.

.The Bcvt Periodicals of the Day.'
We beg to remind our readers that this is the
season for renewing their subscript ions to the
valuable reprints of the Leonard Scott Pub?
lishing Company, of New York, whose adver?
tisement will be found elsewhere. The Eng?
lish Quarterlies and Blackwood, republished
by this company, are /ac similes of the origi?
nals, and are sold at about one-third of the
price paid in Eogland. The four great Quar?

had for $15 a year. For any one review the
price ls $4 a year, and for Blackwood $4 a year.
EDINBURGH REVIEW. October, 1871.
This number of the Edinburgh contains vari?
ed and interesting matter. The first article, a
review of Jowett's translations, ls well worth
reading, and will be a useful introduction to
the book itself. Article II treats of English
Guilds. Article III is an entertaining ace mnt
of some successlul "Adventurers in Inuia."
Article IV, on "Game Laws,"' has not much
interest lor the American reader. Article V,
"South Alrica and her Diamond Fields," ls a
political history of the community which ia
now attracting so much attention. Article VI,
on "Land Tenures," combats lrom the point
of view of political economy some of the radi?
cal projects of reform in tenure which have
been lately broached in England. Article VII.
"Inns of Court and of Chancery," illustrates
curiously English conservatism. Article VIII
is a short history of the Commune, and Arti?
cle IX, "The Session and its Lessons," is a
party document in the usual tone of this Re?
view.
THE WESMIXSTER REVIEW. October, 1871.
Even if this number of the Westminster is
not up to its usual high standard, yet it is well
worth readiog. Article I, on the Pilgrim
Fathers, and Article II, on Greek Democracy,
differ In this-that the former is flaueting and
plain, and the latter flattering and obscure.
Article III, on Chaucer, and Ar.icle IV, on
Faraday, go over tracks which have been well
beaten in the past two year<?. Article V is.
very Interesting and profound, the theory
new, and, if true, important, that science has
partially supplanted, and will entirely sup?
plant, manual art by superior mechanical pro?
cesses. Article VI adopts the Franciscan
theory of Junlus. Article VII, on the Bap?
tists, though written with the Impartiality
that proceeds from indifference, would startle
the conference. Article VIII, on Lessing, ls
entertaining, and, in this country, not trite.
Article IX ls on the session of (Parliament)
1871. The notices ol books, under the head ol
Contemporary Literature, are, as they always
are, very cleverly done.
BL?CKWOOD'S EDINBURGH MAGAZINE. For Oc?
tober and November.
"Fair to See" ls brought to a conclusion, in
which the ends of poetical justice are served;
ana tee "Maid of Sker" is rapidly developing
In .'merest, although, upon occasion, some?
what ?odious. There Is another number of
the "Century of Great Poets," in which the
life of Coleridge ls described and his poetical
work discussed. A pleasant paper on "Ameri?
can Books" will be read with profit on this
side ol the Atlantic. The remaining articles
are, of course, well written, and, according to
taste, yore or less attractive.
New Novell.
IOIIN THOMPSON, BLOCKHEAD: AND COMPAN?
ION PORTRAITS. BV Louisa Purr, author of
"Durothy Fox.". Philadelphia : J. B. Lppln
cott ? Co.
"Dorothy Fox" made a reputation for its
luthor, both in England and in this country,
it is one of the most delightful love stories
nodern fiction has produced, and has already
jeeome too popular to praise. The present
volume of short Stories by th? ?ime author
?vinces many ot her peculiar merits, and will
lot disappoint expectation. It contains much
if that charming and quasi-unconscious humor
vbich consists in making people talk and act
mturally-a process which olU'n results in
trent amusement to the observant looker-on.
JARQUIS AND MERCHANT. A Novel. By Mor?
timer Collins. New York: D. Appleton &
Co.
Mr. Mortimer Collins's slap-dash, haium-,
carum style of romance is well known to our ]
eaders. His novels form a perfect olia
todrida of incongruous material, and one
.age will easily contain a game of chess, with
.11 the moves Bet down, a recipe for a ragout,
ind a desperate flirtation. Absurd as he often
?, however, he is always amusing, and his
.resent book is one of the most entertaining
ie has yet written.
itx MONTHS HENCE. BEHIND THE VEIL. Bos- '
ton : J. R. Osgood ? Co.
These two novels are English reprints. The
lUthor ls a new candidate for popular favor, j
nd he (or she) seems to have obtained a con
iderable share of lt in En g' and, and not entlre
f without desert. The tales belong to the in
ense and domestic romantic Behool, and 1
hough far from challenging comparison with
'Jane Eyre," as some enthus:astic critics have
leclared, they display unusual constructive and
larralive powere.
.OR LACK OF GOLD. By Charles Gibbon, au?
thor ot "Hobin (?ray."
The scene of this striking and triginal novel
s laid in Scotland, and the rugged strength,
tern faith, and enduring constancy of that
lursery of heroes shine out in its pages willi
emarkable effect. The story though painful
3 of great interest, onl beais a merit-mark ol
ts own which ls strong y Indicative of the tal
>nt and individuality ol its ntithor.
DAUUUTER OF HETH. By William Black,
author oi "Love or Marriage."
This is another Scottish story, with the addi
.lon of a French heroine, who is sketched
ivith ail the grace ami vigor which we have
earned to associate with Mr. Black's name.
?Coquette" is one ol the moat charming crea
ions we have ever encountered, and we clo
aot envy tho man whom she does not perfectly
:onquer from first to last. The book is clever,
lOucblng and eloquent lrom cover to cover,
md has only the unusual fault of being too
.hort.
Du M TON ABBEY. By T. A. Trollope, author
ol' "Lindisiarm Chase.".
Mr. T. A. Trollope is a writer of great
ibid y. His books are always interesting,
though they err sometimes on the side of
coarseness, and always on that of lmproba
Dility. Both these faillis ate present in a
striking form in Iiis last book, wnich, though
eery entertaining, cannot be commended for
^discriminate perusal.
HANNAH. By Miss Mtilocb. author of "John
Halifax."
It ls hard to bring a charge of indecency
against the veteran authoress of so many good
books; but if ladies will wi ile novels with tho
purpose of curing eocial ills, they must expect
Lhelr good to be evil spoken of. "Hannah" is
intended to prove that marriage with a de?
ceased wife's sister (unlawful in England)
should be permitted. The special object may
be a good one, but in the interests of general
morality the book must be condemned for
many scenes and paBsageB.
The last four books are published by Harper
i Brothers, and ail the above may be found at
Foganie's Book Depository.
