Friday, June 25, 1875 (From the Greenville Register.) Judicial Tyranny. We are neither a lawyer nor the san of a lawyer ; but we have ai ways been told that in our Courts we bad juries, and that those iuries tiaa an important and independent part to perform in the administra tion of justice. We learned in our Imtories in school boy dayvthat the right of trialDy jury was one t tuo greatest teatures our system of government borrowed from the grand and well matured system of nglish Jurisdiction. In our ears iest reading of the Constitution of the United States, we remember to have read this in Art. Ill, Sec. 3, ' The trial of all crimes, except in cases of impeachment, shall be by ury ; and we find upon a recent reading of that instrument that amid all the changes through which it has recently passed, that feature still stands as it was written by our ainers, neany one hundred veara 3. We grew up in the belief that any man accused of crime has this sacred right of trial by jury. In fact we find in section 13 of the Bill of rights of our State ConstN tution these impressive words, "No person snail be convicted of anv crime but by the unanimous verdict of a jury of good and lawful men, in open court." To this sacred right of trial by jury our people ooiiea tor prtection against the malignity of a cruel persecution the influence of money the danger of perjured witnesses and the inter errence of a preiudiced or parti san Judge. As a public journalist we Iel it to be our duty to assail any man, whatever may be his po sition, who attemps to invade the sanctity of the juryhox ; encroach upon the rights of jurors or to weas ien the power and influence of this mighty bulwark of the peoples lib erties. These reflections lead to the in quiry, lias any one so far for gotten himself as to improperly in tertere with the rights of a inrir? We answer that according to our understanding of the case, it has done in our midst ; been recently and in a manner thifc merits criti- At May Term 1875, of Pitt Su perior VJosrr, Jienjaman reel, a white man, was indicted and tried for stealing some cotton, the nrorH erty of Solomon Harriss a colored man, or for receiving: the same. nowing it to he stolen. Teel plead ed not ,.;it whereupon the fol owing jurors were sworn and im pannelled to issue to wit: J. B. Coward, James Bell, S. A. Thigpen, J. B. Ellis, Christopher Patrick, J. J. Mills, W. C. Moore, J. Fleming, John H. Buck, W. Mooring, white, and Mack Moore and Kinchen Lang, colored. JSow what were the powers, pnv eges and perogatiyes of the jurors in trie trial ol tins cause : ihe words then spoken hy the officers of the Court will best answer the Question. The Clerk of the Court in the discharge of his duty said to the jury ; " Gentlemen of tne jury you are m'om and impanneied to try this issue travis joined between the State and Benjaman Teel. You will sit together hear the evidence, and return your verdict according ly." The Solicitor in opening the case for the State said: "Gentle men of the jury. Benjaman Teel stands indicted for stealing some cotton, the property of Solomon Harris with acount in the Bill for receiving tne same knowing it to be stolen, xou will hear the evi dence and say whether he be guilty or not." The Judge, in his charge to the jury, after the evidence and argument had been closed, very properly said to the jury : " Gen tlemen of the jury, you and Z, each have one part to perform in the trial of this cause; and neither can disregard the rights of the other without impeding the proper ad ministration of the law, and viola ting our oaths. You are bound, your oath and the responsibility of your position to take the law from me and I, under my oath and in discharge of the duties of my office am bound to receive the facts from you. Now is it not clear that the Judge i3 supreme, as to the law, and the jury as to the facts. If the Judge said this or that was law, was not the iury under their oaths to regard it? If on the other hand the jury, after hcariDg the evidence and the charge ot His Honor, said tbe detendent was not guilty, was not the Judge bound to so regard him in his official acts : Most as suredly he was. If the Judge hon estly believed he had laid the law down tothe jury correctly what right had the jury to say, "sir, you have not charged us according to law have perjured yourself ; get off the bench we have no further use for vou ?" Certainly, none. Then if the jury honestly believes that the defendent, upon the evidence, was not guilty upon their oaths, what could they say but not guilty 1" and bavins under their oaths said not "guilty," what right had the Judge to say. " Gentlemen of the jury we have no further use for you, get out of the box. You can be paid off and discharged. Do you think your verdict would have been the same if Solomon Harriss had been on trial for stealing Ben TeeFs cots ton ? I do, not. You are unfit to serve on a jury and the County Commissioners will take your names out of the box ? " You are perju red men V None. And yet this is, in substance, what Judge Moore said to the jury, because they could not find Ben. Teel 'guiltyi i a Viewed rroui one csiauvl point, we can call this nothing less than an unauthorized, high handed invasion of the rights of jurors, by Judge Moore, for which he is justly cen surable. It is a blow at the great bulwark of the liberty of the citi zens the independent free action of jurors in passing upon the guilt or innocence of the accused. Who will say that such a severe lecture as Judge Moore gave that jury, does not tend to paralize the inde pendent action of the jury? Who will say, that coming from a Judge clothed with such power in Court, that it does not tend to demoralize the jury ? What man likes to be told by a Judge in open court, that he is a purjured man and unfit to serve on a jury ? iZow soon and how unconciously a weak man will sink his independence, rather than incur the wrath of the judge to be poured out upon him in open Court, cannot be easily told. Who that ever saw the open and frank face of uncle Jack Buck will believe he did not do what he thought was right ? And yet Judge Moore tells him in open court he is a purjurer. And such is the pow er of the Judge that he must tame ly submit to it. Alas, for our lib erties and our rights ! When the independent and free action of the jury is thus demoralized, paralized and broken down by the tyrrany of an arbitrary Judge. In our next issue we will suggest a remedy. His Looks Deceived Him. He did not look like a joker, says M. Quad. One to sit and study his face would haye said that his soul was lost in melancholy that he didn't care two cents whether the sun &et at noon or staid up until 7 o'clock. 7e entered the ladies' sit ting-room at the Central Depot, walked up to a weman whose hus band had left the room about ten minutes previously, and calmly inn quired: 'Madam, your husband went out to see the river, didn't he ?' 'Yes why ?' she asked, turning pale in an instant. 'He was a tall man, wasn't he ?' 'He was,' she replied, rising up and turning still paler. 'Had .red hair ?' !7dliad oh! what has happen ed?' 'Weighed about one hundred and eighty pounds ?' 'Yes yes where is he where is my husband ?' she exclaimed. Couldn't swim, could he ?' ITfta flrAwrtorl m tt rmoliaTiil ifl drowned !' 'Had a silver watch chain ?' con tinued the stranger. 'Where is my husband where is the body : she gasped. 'Do not eet excited, madam. Did your husband have on a gray suit ?' 'xes oh! my Thomas! my Thomas !' 'And stoga boots ?' 'Let me see him let me see him!' she cried. 'Come thi3 way, madam, but do not get excited. There, is that your husband across the street at that peanut stand ?' Why, yes, that s him ; that s my husband ! she exclaimed joytully. I thought you said he was drown ed.' 'JNo, madam, 1 did not. l saw him buying peanuts, and I believed it my duty to say to you that pea' nuts are not healthy at this season of the year I He slid softly out, and she stood there and chewed her parasol and stared after him as if he were a me nagerie on wheels. How to Grow Independent. "We have time and again called attention tothe suicidal policy adop ted by the great majority of farm ers in North Carolina that of sen ding to the North for their flour, meat, Dutter and nay. mere is no necessity for this, for nowhere on i . . i i mi God s green earth can bread, meat, butter and hay be produced to greater perfection or more profit than here. And until this is done until our farmers turn their at tention in this direction they wil not only remain dependent ana poor but keep getting more so. A more diversified system of farming and the utilization ot the advanta ges furnished by soil and climate for producing their bread and meat their milk, butter and hay, and al. the other comforts of life these must be insisted on and adopted, and then will our people feel indepen dent and grow prosperous." Eliza beth (Jtty (Jammcm. A Warning. For several days pa3t it has been our sad duty as a purveyor of news to publish accounts of some foul and infamous outrages -.upon female chastity. The case in Odenton, Maryland, was rapidly followed by a dastardly attempt in the same county. Then came one in Georgia which exceeded in diabolism either of these, and another still at La Fayette, New York. In all these instances the victims were white adies of the highest purity and respectability: the ' perpetrators of had been straying about the vicini ty, coming from no one knows where. We are not exactly prepared to give the advice of the Richmond Yhig which is that 'every white la dy in the South owes it to herself to accustom herself to the use of fire arms, never to leave her house with out a pistol, and always to have one at hand in-doors.' Sometimes it would be inconvenient and unn necessary for a lady to carry a pis toi. liut we tnink that means of defence should be at hand in every household, and that our women should accustom themselves to the use of the revolver. Another suggestion : No lady snouia go into untrequented or 111 " A -. onely localities, far from occupied premises, without a protector, and if she cannot have a male friend to defend her from harm she should carry on her person a trusty self protector, and know how to use it. Subjects of this nature are too requently shunned. We believe in a little plain talking occasionally because it may prevent irremedia ble harm. The crime we write of i3 becoming fearfully common in the whole country. There is hard y a day tnat tnere is not one or mere outrages committed. Wu, Star. Retribution. The horrors of rape are augment ted by the horrors of the trial of it. Think of a delicate female, to whose mind every suggestion of impurity is a shock, and every reflection ups on the wrong of it a pang more poignant than the stab of a two-edged sword, being called upon to stand up in a crowded court room and tes tify to the wroDg which had been done her a wron-r she cannot bring her lips to shapo themselves around in language, or her palsied tongue to utter in speech! A name- ess horrror; a gastly wound upon the face of time, at which imagina tion stands appalled and shrinks as from a hellish apparition. Ihe men ot Anne Arundel coun try, like those of Prince George's, who wish to protect their wives and daughters from outrages worse than death, know that they must lynch every negro who commit3 a rape on a white woman, and that right speed ily. Hence they took the fiend Simms out of j ail at Annapolis, on Mnday morning, at 2 o'clock, and hung him to a tree. The scoundrel wanted to make a speech, and they ought to have heard it out. He con fessed the crime, and wanted to ex plain his reasons for it. We should like to know what they were. Per haps he had read the Glironicles ed itorial excusing negro rapes on white women, because of slavery be fore the war. Grant's Nonchalance and Luck. The New York correspondent of the Boston Journal says: 'From the time the General stood kicking his heels on the lintel of the State iZbuse at Springfield to the present moment he has been distinguished for Brood lack. He always comes down on his feet. An excited Democrat uttered quite a philosophical truth the other day on this matter: 'Grant's the luck iest dog alive. I never saw anything luse it ney nave cornered rum a dozen times and he was'nt there They have investigated him with hosx tile committees, and it is no use. Thoy expected to catch him in tho San Domingo matter. The Jay Cooke failure ruined him financially, only he had'nt any money in that bank. The Credit Mobilier was to use him up. but it only scorched the men that tried to put him in. Now, this book of Sherman's would kill any other man but Grant. When I read it was sure the General would have to come to the front. Just here his luck came in. Sherman has struck so many men Democrats as well as Radicals and they are so ready for the fray, that these men will fight the battle with Sherman, and the President will quietly smoke his cigar in the White House and say, as usual nothing.' ' Josephine. The Empress Josephine was very fond of perfumes, and above all of musk. Her dressing room at Mai maiscn was filled with it in spite of JNapoIeon s frequent remonstrance. Many years have elapsed since her death, and the present owner of Malmaison has had the walls of the dressing room repeatedly washed and painted, but neither scrubbing nor aquafortis nor paint has been sufficient to remove the smell of the good Empress' musk, which con tin ues as strong as if a bottle which contained it had been but yesterday removed. From the "State Agricutnral Journal." The Boy or ths Coming Han Like the tender shrub that springs up and must remain subject to destruction until it has reached its maturity of growth, so the boy whilst in his tender years, when the character is developing itself, nnds many snares about hi3 foot-steps to impede hi3 honorable progress. Temptations irresistible almost, allure bim into vice. The consciens tious youth, who has in his heart an honest desire to become a nse ful man, must bring into action the utmost cnlfatl ii ei-rAay ff, A4 complish his praiseworthy designs; while the irresolute whose con-i science has never been pricked by tne deplorable consequences ot in discretion must necessarily into oblivion and perhaps into very depth of infamy. JJence danger of hardening the heart sink the the and of shutting up the conscience to every sympathetic feeling, and of associating with immoral and vicious characters, br as the 'twig is bent so is the tree inclined,' and if the character, in our boyhood, becomes tainted with vice it is an easy mat ter to determine the future; while on the other hand if evil associations are avoided, if the conduct is one of straightforward, unwavering con stancy, we may safely predict for such a character success and honor. Then as boys, sesing that if we car- ry with us our defective traits too long that they will be our unwell come companions all through life, let us place the good as the antagom ist of the evil, and the result will be favorable to us. If we gain these victories as boys we can the better rejoice over them a men. Forboy hood might properly be compared to dreams, but manhood is full of real ities. The boy therefore cannot be too vigilant, he cannot resist too boldly the enticement of these flat tering yisions of youth; and above all he cannot be too truthful. Be cause all these tend to that success which all desire. Such qualities are indeed essential to success. They should therefore be diligently cul tivated by the aspiring boys, for up on them rests the destiny of a great nation. Silas E. Warren. Tarboro, N. C, June 1st 187G . Comforts and Luxuries of the Farm. There is a class of farmers who are livirg only to grasp more acres. Their farms can never bo large e nough, nor themselves ever do quite enough work. They cannot be sats isfied with the income of a farm, nor could they bo with that or any other business. But those, who understand that the highest object of labor is not simply to mate money, but to provide the largest amount of the improvment and in nocent enjoyment the world affords, can make the pursuits of agricul ture furnish more luxuries that re ally contribute to our well being than other employments requiring an equal amount of capitol. Their farms are not so large as to make slaves of themselves, and their wives, and daughters are not worn out with incessant drudgery. Their door yards blossom with flowers, their tables are supplied with many varieties of well-grown delicious fruit, their houses are made cheer ful by the influence of books and music, and a taste for the pure and innocent enjoyments of life is de- veloped in their children. Here and-there a farmers home exempli fies all the contentment and happi ness possible to a race doomed to labor and disappointment. Pratf tical Farmer. , - - i Sometimes Parson Brownlow is witty and sometimes he is not, but at all times he is, to say the least, unique. A few days ago the Greenville (S. C.) News addressed him as follows : This disreputable old Tennessee politician has been abusing General D. H. Hill. Hi3 forte is abuse, and his abuse is founded on falser hood. He is a scoundrel, and if he will come to Greenville, South Carolina, the editor of the Netvt will open his columns to him to ret fute the charge, or he will meet him on the stump.' To this invitation we find the following reply in the Knoxvilld Chronicle, of which Brownlow is the editor, dated June 13 : " This I understand to be a cau tiously worded challenge to fight a duel. I accept tho challenge. The laws governing the cade of honor allows the challenged party to designate time and place, and wea pon3 for a duel. I appoint that we fight in an open-top Jog-pen, im mediately after a hard summer rairt, and that the weapons be dung- folks. Whoever shall toss the other out shall be regarded as having killed him in mortal combat ! 'W. G. Brownlow, Editor, &c, At a prare -meeting an old man got up and prayed for a son now in a felon's cell for the crime ofmurder. Another old man trembling joined his prayer3, adding that he, too, had a son, but he had been murdered. Their names were made known, and the fathers of Edward S. Stokes an James Fisk, Jr., stood for the first time face to face. Chicago Trihne.
