The Lawyers.
"The man who undertakes t.? att.a ! ? ?
his own osse has a fool for a client." This
ssying Uaobtss us that if.tli?? men who take
pleasure in denouncing the lawyers as u
elasa are f.ne.1 or irr toted fot any reason
whatever they always find it m-cesaary. if
they are wise, to call mat once the servie s
of ? limb of the law. To talk against law?
yers is as unprofitable and as unjnst aa to
talk against tbe jury system. Many and
many an article have we seen intend. 1 to
prove that that system was imperi??? t an 1
Undesirable, but we have never know
man charged with a sonous offence
against tbe laws of bis country
Who did not havo sense enough to
prefer to be tried by Bat peers; tlust is.
by hi? "country," as the clerk tell? every
defendant in a criminal case when bo says.
"which country you are"?that i?, the
jury. 8o as to lawyers. Whatever inav be
?aid of tbem wh?n the skies aro bright
overhead they are certain to be called
on when lowering clouds gather, or
a etorm and tempest of condemnation
threatens an alleged offender with irr. pa?
rable wrong. Especially is this true in
criminal cases such as we have had here in
lUchinoud. With good lawyers to defend
him and a jury ? 4 his ? .wn count rymen to iff
him, an innocent man can almost always
count upon acquittal. Judge I'npbbwooij,
whom we might pronounce no lawyer at
all. would have be. u potent for ??TOStf and
injustice and oppression in this city bad
be not baen held in check by the bar.
Where is the man who would rather snlv
mit his case to such a jndge than to a jury
of hie countrymen?
What county has tho most influence ia
the Legislature of Virginia ? The one that
?vends the ahi,al lawver to represent it.
The prejudice sgainst lawyers bus resulted
in some States in ? boting'so few lawyers
to the Legislature that it has been pro?
posed to have a legislative lawyer, corre
eponding in some sort to an Attorney
?General, to clamino critically all bills
about to become laws and ? ?ss upon their
constitutionality and the accuracy of their
phraseology.
Put we need no such facts to convince us
that lawyers are in a peculiar aonse
the guardians <?f the liberties of the peo?
ple; for if a legislature were Bleated 60B>
sistini* wholly of persons not lawyers, it is
just as certain as unvthing can be that the
members of auch a body would have to
?Tnplf.y lawyer? to draft their bills, and to
tell them when these bills came into con?
flict with the organic law. How
knows a law-maker not a lawy?
whet tho Federal Constitution incuris
by the phri?e " privileges Of im?
munities".? What meaning do the words
"bill of attainder'' carry to his mind?
What does he suppose the woril? "ex peal
facto law " to mean ? We have known one
of the brightest, sharpest business-men in
Kiehmond to contend that these last
quoted words applied to pecuniary con?
tracts. If ?non-professional men ?>f the
highest intelligence stand thus helpless m
the presente of constitutional provi ions
?o plain and so well understood bv the
lawyers what sort of guardians of the
liberties of the people would the avi rag?
man be? We need not answer. II the
liberties of the people have any guardiane
worthy of tbe name these guardians
mu?t neceesarily be lawyers. The ?dtOSp?
tions England and tin? country furnish
onlv prove that the rule is the other way.
There has boon but one Lord Uaco.i?but
one Jrrmiv-.
Whence came our laws ? From the law?
yers of Enfiami in large measure. The
common law is our inheritance. How
many of our statute laws originated in
that country we shall not undertake to
say. Hut we can say that, in our opinion at
least, the courts of this country command
the reapect of tho people at large because
they pattern after the courts which have
made the administration of justice in Eng?
land by her able lawyers nota by-word and
a hissing, but the pride of all English,
?(leaking countries the world over. The
purity of the judicial ermine in all su. h
ce-untries is the botan of their inhabitants.
We dwell in the midst of blessing? which
we owe to the lawyer?.
We need not add that we have no good
words for the lawyers who are unworthy of
the profession to which they are attached
ss barn teles to a vessel at sea.
Ju tea Lewis and the President.
Tho following paragraph is not very
creditable V> the President of the Tinted
Bute*. It Is copied from the Lynchburg
A'ru?*, which paper, niter saying that the
bar of Kiehmond had recommended Judge
Lawi? for judge of tho new circuit court
in the Fourth circuit, adds:
"The KiCMatosn l)i?r*TCH al?o wermlr favor?
Judge Law I?'? appointment, aud w? hav? no
doubt aaa Chole? between H?publlc?u?he would
he warmly endorsed by every use who know?
him. We fear, however, that tfc**e Democratic
endor?? ruent* ef so boneat and Juitman for a
]udge?hlp will be damaging to th? prospe t.s of
Judg? Lewi? In the eelleatlon of the i'rot!d?iiL
11? wUI musi probably prefer to make his selec?
tion from tao??* le??! *ndor?ed by Demo rat? and
most endorsed bv th? extreme member? of hi?
own party. Thai!? vary much Ilk? llarrlsou?
war ot dl?pea?lng honor? as favor?. Ws never
thai??* vsalar* to put tn oar plea for Judg?
Lewis, aad to ?ay that he bu? be?, ever tines tb?
wsr a consistent K?pub!l-an, sod for nearly
twelve year? the abl? and upright presiding
Judg? ot tb* Court of Appeal? of tb? Democratic
Stet* of Virglut?. 1 hai ought to commend htm
to th* Urta-abl? consid?ration of tb? Pre?ld?ut
In mating bis chole?, among the ?ppllc?o*.? "
There is a rumor in circulation in Wash.
Ington that the President hat not vet de?
cided that he will not appoint a Democrat
or two under the uew statute. We do n<>t
expect bim to do any such thing. As to
the rest, we should regret very much if
the action of the Kiehmond bar ware to re?
sult in depriving Judge Liwu of tli.? ap?
pointment. We do not much fear that the
l'rewdeut will prove himself to l>o so ?mall
? man.

tainly true._
Interesting Questions?
In rofereneeto the contention that the
President of the united Btatee wonld not
have the right to make new appointment?
ot circuit jndgea if any of his nomine??
should decline to terra or be rejected by
the Senate, because tbe President has tbe
right oniy to nil vacancies that may " hap?
pen." and there wonld be no such "va?
carci???*'? as are contemplated in the new
law, we remark that in the Cnited States
Senate that construction of the aame
words in the Fe?ler?l Constitution obtain.
I ed for many vears, bnt was finally com?
pelled to givo war to the construction
which hold? that the word? "and if va
cancie? h?|>i??-n" niesn "nnd it vacanciea
happen U> occur." The same construction
would hold good m tho case of the new
jadges. no doul?t.
I lie New York 7Vtn?*?t ?eem?. therefore,
to n? to l?e in the wrong as to tine point,
tbongh it i? not v?*ry clear in the expres?
sion of its opinion. Hut that journal ia
right beyond a <h?ubt wb?*n it make? the
following contention:
"Apart frort??? th? explicit language of tb? Con
?lituUou, toe aet creating tbe u<?w court? ?pecin.
cally provide? ibat the Judges ?hall be appointed
' by aad w.lb th? advice aud con?ent of tbe Ken
ate.' Jf they are otherwise an ointed tbe valid?
ity of any ac'ion of the court? taken before the
appointment of the Judges has been cou fu m "?I
may be trough! Intoqueailon. and Uie Or?! effect
of lb? effort ??.relieve ?he bupreme Court roar
b? to require It to pas? upon tb? validity ot all
tbo work ?one for its relief."
The new court? would be bogus court?
if they were organized beforo tho new
circuit judges to be appointed by the
l'n-ideiit of tho United Stute? had been
confirmed in their places by the Senate.
The Senate cannot abdicate its functions.
It must p? rfo.m its duty under the Consti?
tution, ami <>ne of the?e duties is to join
tb?? President in tho work of making all
new judges._
Wo take it for granted that the city
fatbf.rs are actuated by proper motive?
when they decide upon any proposition
which bus been submitted to their consid?
eration. And this of course whether in our
opinion they decide it aright or not. We
think thiit the resolution appropriating
?i?*75.(JOO for thejeBtablishment of an clcctric
plant ought to have been adopted by tbe
Hoard of Aldermen on Monday night; and
we mny h.-reufter endeavor to show wboie
in tbe Hoard erred in refusing to do bo. It
would be nn irreparable loes to tho city to
turn the g?.?plant over to speculators.
Aldorman Cat-eii? on Monday night set
the ball in motion airainat the wretched
system of fast driving which prevail? here
by securing tlio adoption of a IBtolatloB
looking to tho amendment of existing
law?.
It is a question wheth?*r pedestrian?
have any right which drivers are bound to
rospect._
Mr. Eni?rfM*s i? a fine lawyer. If he has
pronounced unconstitutional tho law
establishing new courts of appeal, tbat
fact will damage the new statute. But we
do not credit the rumor. Mr. F.dmlt?os
rould have expressed tbat opinion when
the bill was before the Senato if he had
entertained it._
Tho Hoard of Aldermen does not repre?
sent any public sentiment which we know
or ever heard of in refusing to lower the

Many will want them and wo've many
to supply th? many with. We've ?ome
at 810, $12, $15, 818, $20, $22, $25, and
$10. Of course thou? at higher prices are
more elegant than those at tho lower
prices, tho' perhaps not more durable.
If it'? your intention to have a new COAT
thi? season you'll do yourself an injustice
if you pass our ?tock without on inspec?
tion. Many of tho ?tries we now ?bow
cannot bo duplicated, consequently it
behooves you to make your purchase
while the Htock is compirle.
