IHB KIW JUBY LAW.
Judgs Heiskell, of the First Circuit
Court, held yesterday that the new jury
law had taken effect and that litigants
most pay the jury fees. The parties to a
case then ready for trial concluded to
proceed without a jury, and the Judge
discharged twenty-four excellent gentle
tnen.who have heen detained many weeks
from their business on the panel. He paid
them a high compliment fer their patience
and fidelity to duty, and then permitted
them to go on their way rejoicing. The
pay is a mere pittance in county war
rants.and the jury men were doubtless glad
to be relieved from the close confinement
and its poor remuneration, for we under
stand that none of these were of the
class known as professional jurymen.
The litigants in that particular case
seem willing to trust the Court, and it is
not probable that many juries will here
after be demanded in civil cases, as the
fees would be taxed to the losing party
as other costs. Let us see what the
county has been taxed per annum for
jury fees. ' We have two Circuit Courts,
sitting say eight months in the year;
allow two panels to each court, that is
48 jurymen at (2 a day, or f 96 in all.
This gives $576 per week, or about 22300
per month. Multiply this by eight, and
we have $18,400 as jury fees paid every
year by the tax-payers of Shelby county,
and this is an inside estimate. The
people of Shelby county can stand this
reduction, . although a few interested
parties may complain for the time being.
Hereafter the pay ol iurymen will be
only $1 SO per day, and they must look
to litigants for their pay just as clerks
and sheriffs and constables do. A jury
is seldom called for in the Chancery
vlourt, and there is no apparent reason,
except in the custom, why justice eannot
be had in a Circuit Court as well without
a jury. In cases of forma pauperis the
county will pay the jury fees as nsoal,
and the law in no way affects the right
of trial by jury in criminal cases.
Eighteen Or twenty thousand dollars, or
even ten thousand dollars, saved to the
tax-pay'iDg, hard-working people of
Shelby county is an item at which they
will not grumble. . .
ATT0BHEY GEHEUAL WILLIAMS.
As announced in the telegraphic col
umns of the Ledger yesterday, Attorney
General Williams has tendered his resig
nation, and it will be accepted. Secre
tary Bristow will probably be his 8uce.es
or. Williams 'goes back to Oregon to
lay p"ipes for the United 8tates Senate.
Kelly's term expires March 3, Ml. The
Oregon Legislature - will be elected next
spring, but the campaign really opens
this fall Williams has suddenly discov
ered that he would like to spend a few
months among his old friends on the Pa
cific slope. It is not by any means cer
tain that a Republican Legislature will
be elected, but as the party is solid and
the Democrats are divided, there may be
a chance, and in that event Williams
might he chosen to the Senate. Kelly
is a Democrat and a candidate for re
election, but has strong opposition in hit
. . a -v . w-
own party. , as vregon opens me Presi
dential campaign in 1876, the adminis
tration will make a great effort to carry
the State for the effect it will have on
the conntry. .
Coosciwan Fisher offered a resolu
tion last night which is peculiar, to say
the least, and before it passes both
boards, we eujRest that its bearing be
careiuny considered by the members.
The resolution provides that all insur
ance companies and banks may comnro-
raise their taxes fey paying on one-third
of their capital. In other words, it re
mits two thirds ot their taxes. If there
is any law or sound public policy or
quity in this, we will, when convinced
,take pleasure in making the fact known
Govebnor Porter has issued a procla
mation calling upon the citizens of Ten
nessee to meet , together and celebrate
the day of the dawning of American lib
erty, and observe it as a day of rejoic
ins; and a general holiday, at Mecklen
bnrg, North Carolina, on the 20th of
May. Now let us have a little centen
nial of our own down this way. We
bave fully as much 'right to it and as
much in the history of the past hundred
years to be proud of as the people of
Lexington, or Concord, or Philadelphia.
A oooo many dams have broken" loose
recently in Massachusetts, caused by
.heavy floods, and a very big dam broke
loose at a railroad depot in New jersey
the other day, caused by a gate-keeper
asking the -President of these United
States for a ticket. 'It reminded our
Chief. Magistrate of fthe days pf toll-
gates when he hauled wood for a living,
and ho had to say " damn." It was the
same as to say "yon rebel, disperse,"
but ye rebel wouldn't disperse until the
ticket was presented.
i - -
There has been much gossip concern
ing the probable resignation of Secre
tary Delano fori the last threo or four
days. It is denied that the President
has requested him to resign. This, how
ever, does not stop the report that his
son John has been found guilty of
fraudulent transactions, of which the
father could not have been ignorant.
The President is not very approachable
on this subject, but the latest informa
tion leads to the belief that no imme
diate change will take place.
Governor Bill Allen, of Ohio, h
plainly indicated that the main issue to
be made in the fall campaign will be the
third term question. This has alarmed
the Republicans considerably, especially
as the Cincinnati Commercial has lately
come out strongly against Grant's further
aspirations. The Republicans meet in
convention on tne Zd ot June, when a
Btrong effort will be made to insert an
anti third term plapk in the platform.
The franking privilege having been
restored, the Congressmen and Senators
who get the benefit at the expense of the
people, are sending home all the hooks
and pamphlets accumulated fortwo years.
One Senator packed off eight hundred
books through the (sails in a single day.
And this is the way Congress pretends
to retrench and economize with the
Tee grand ceremony of conferring the
scarlet Beretta on Cardinal McClosky
will lake place at St. Patrick's Cathedral
in New York next Tuesday. Thirty
ihops and archbishops, with a large
number ot other ecclesiasts, will assist
in the services. The principal singers
of New York, assisted by one hundred
voices, will conduct the musical portion
of the exercises.
The Graphic's Washington corre
spondent is confident that Grant is not a
candidate for a third term, and never
had the slightest intention of standing
for it. Of course not. Who ever sus
pected such a thing.
The new Advent Saints of New Jer
sey, who were ready for the end of time
last week, flew into a passion at one of
their false prophets and bad him put in
the calaboose. '
General Breckinridge is not so well
as usual, and fears are entertained for
Parson Uraavllle Moody.
The Cincinnati Commercial of the
16th contains the following scraps of
history concerning the fighting Ohio
parson, Colonel Granville Moody, and
Military Governor Andrew Johnson.
The interviewer says : ( ' .'. .
As to the question of the pravine in
Nashville just when Buell was evacuat-
ng the town, Moody went np to see
Andy Johnson, and they got on their
knees. Johnson was crying and swear
ing violently, but they both finally went
down on their marrow bones on the mat
ting. Moody prayed that the God of
battles would send wisdom to Andy and
make up bis mind to do what was right.
Moody told the God of battles on the
spot that he bad advised Andy to stay
and tight it out there if it killed him,
and if Gcd wanted to overrule that, he
hoped for some special light on the sub
ject. Andy seems not to have gone
much on the prayer at first, but as
Moody warmed to bis work and began to
shake the walls with his fervor, Andy
scratched along on tne matting on his
knees and toes, cams close np beside
the inspired Colonel, and putting his
arm about his head and shoulders, ut
tered several earnest amens. When the
prayer was through, Andy's mind was
made up. Wnen they got noon their
feet and Andy saw the national flag flyj
ing from the State-house, he defiantly
exclaimed that "he'd be damned if he
was going away to leave that flag to be
pulled down." Moody reminded him
that he had just been engaged in prayer,
and that he must not swear, but Andy
said he had not sworn. Lie would be
damned if he was going away, but he
did not make the declaration in a pro
fane snirit. He did not understand it to
be swearing unless he took the name of
God in vain, and that he insisted he had
not done. Liut at all events he d he
damned if he left that town.
Crimped braid fringe is mentioned
being on many of the Paris dresses.
