P.wv Paw, Miobioar, Jari iri 9, lvT 1 During tbe progresa of the foigery trial just concluded, this journal refrained from making any comments on tbe case or tbe evidence, ex cept as to some of the experts produced to prove the geniunenesB of th signature to the instrument alleged to have been forged. The experts from Cirand Papnls, after testify ing here, had become tbe easy dupes of a r-trnngci 11 that city, and had paid, over their banl; counters. iare Bums of money on forged certifi ates. by which thev demonstrated tneir utter worthlbBBuess as judges of handwritings. Kor Biying what we did about them, the coun sel for the respondent took oft'ense and, as we understand tbe matter, went to the IwtRi with our case aud represented that the conductor of thiB journal. The Tri:e Northerner, was trinity of great indecorum and a misdemeanor to wit ; of the crime of "contempt of Court," and should bo subjected to the pains and pen alties of a tine and a salutary lecture from tbe "wool-sack." His Honor. Judge I'.rown re garded tlie mat' or in a very different light I fortunately for us I and wbb of tbo opinion that the bounds of editorial propnetv had not been transcended. The counsel may have bad In their minds tbo recent case in bMMi BOMltl in which Jttdgl Wells, one of the JndgM ol the Supreme Court had sent out and brought in the KditorH of the Ratardoy JftmMf -tap!''! of the citv of Bos ton, and lined them twenty-five dollars for, in the language 0: the Judge, "contempt m pub' li-hiug an article tonding to 1 iaa the jury in a suit then pending before him." It ban time our. of mind been argued by the more sensirivo and contservntive of tbe logal 1 rofeasion that no jont Dal or person, by Ibl circulation of news touching the lats or evi dence in any case pending, cai be justified In prejudicing the jury, 01 IhOM who uiiu'bt be- . Come the jury ; hut never l e'ore. 111 this conn try at least, have we heard of the enforcomen' t of the theory ly pains aud penalties, on the j art of a Judge. The idea ought to be obsolete for it grows out of that other, equally had.that 1 no man who has read of or formed an opinion iu a luurder ca.se, can sit upon the jury. Both ideas have grown from those ancient forms of , government which have looked to othcinl safei v through the ignoranc; of. rather than the in telligence of tbe people. KnIL'btened and bl end Judges, sitting in American courts, have, for years past puBhed aside this idea as dcoO eistent with this progressive aue, and as enriro ly unnecessary in attaining the ends of justice. It seems (0 have l een reserved for a Suprem" Judge of enlightened Massa i;nsetts to pu' a newer aud more arbitrary con-trnction upon the old ulea.and one which, if allowed to stand. 1 more senouslv threatens tba liberties of the press than anything which bus yet transpired 1 in the history of this country. If an ediror may not comment on evidence or facts adduc- 1 ed. be surely cannot publish any of the details 01 a crime before trial is had and a verdict rendered for until tbe trial iB reached it can not be known jaBt what facts may influence the judgment of the jury. This is not a question between liberty aud hcen-e. such as is some times raised in suits for liliel. The Kditors of the KajJSM- were not accused of any abuse of that liberty usually accorded to the press : but by tbe arbitrary mandate of a taiga, by virtue of poweiB presumed to be inherent in him, and not awakened by tbo appeal of any person claiming to be agrieved, tbe Kditors were sent for and on tbe dictum of one man pronounced to be guilty Of "contempt. ' Phis appears to htj the kind of precdent that was sought to bo established in Michigai where vast sums of money aro yearlv raised to support her institu tions of learning a State whoso proudest boast ih that all her citizens enjoy the largest f;i ib ties to become intelligent. The proposition to bt submitted to tbo peo plo at the spring election to raise bf tax tbe small Bum of two thou-m l 1 dlars for 1 he pur pose of constructing a secure and safe place m which to keep the public records soems to meet with o;.pOHition in some quarters, and what is siiri 11-tug is that the opposition seems lo be BMd on locil prejudices and peCy jcaloiisic- . In ui.iny cases Ibe public records afford the only evidence of a continuous chain of title tbo , prior deeds, porhapB uover having been deliver ed to the purchaser, he rely ing on the evidence ' furnished by the books in the public rogistry. We LUppose that it is well known to evory body that all the valuable public records of the ; county are kept in the 0111 1 House, a wooden structure which may, at any time, be swept j away by a conflagration. It will be recollected i that at tbe first gioat firo in our village in 117, j that the Court House took tire on the .-oof and ; was only saved from the general wreck by the 1 curago and intrepidity of oue man who at groat peril to himself, extinguisned the flames and guarded it from furthor danger. It may be fresh in the recollection of OMrptopta that ! the Court House of Kent county, together .vitb all the records, were dostroyed by tire, and that all property owners in that county wore put to great trouble and expense, to re-establish and sottlo ;he titlo to their property. like M M rence JN would bo a very groat calamity, and would result m loss to the property holders of a quarter of a million of dollars or more in the costs of litigation which would be quite MM to follow, and proving and settling their titles through the intervention of the coitrte of law and of equity. It is true that such an occur rence would furnish a great pecuniary feast to the lawvers, but would al work lrreparablo m.-chief to everv one e'se-a condit.on of things that none of us ever want to experience a condition that should be guarded araint by adopting timelv precautionary measures. We feel confident the pMfM " "ieir bcet interests in this matter and grant the -mill pittance necessary to insure the safety of the public records. It will 1 economy to do so. mm9 i:lrarl.-Nstnral laws cause sickness and T i". P curative arert' f otmtry .Vm , IVotogV .( E.i r han .
