ViVT WITNEtSES IN COURTS ANY IrIUllTS I Norw York Word) SA very uncsul 'scene was presented a Sw days ago in court at Priladelphis when Spreaminent member of the bar, Mr. B. L. Ilpmaple, came up before Judge Briggs to Sarge himself of contempt. In his argu imsent in the defense of the homicide, Frank srely, Mr. Temple assailed a Mr. Miller, !'a subordinate mll-e.-r of the court, who lmemples the positio,. of a detective and in wmner," to quote ex Attorney General 'las, with sette violence of language -I t the Court twice interfered, but vainly, " z r the advocate poured on his victim a : ird shower of vituperation accompanied b. a vehement phaysical gesture, striking S , bar with his fast in front of Miller. P' ace, of course. an arrest for contempt. . '4,.pp.arlg for Mr. Temple Mr. Harris '.lseded that the lawyer bad a great re a bility resting on him in that case, e, hich wa aggrvated y personal ano iteale oosiderationsi and had been sub jtedto a severe mental strain for several ys. Judge Brigga said, before dismiss . the matter, that he was fully aware of th eircumstances, but that nothing 4mld exeause counsel for exceeding the - e ds of decbrum. " The language you i,4mt,"w said he to the lawyer, "aud the 'Wa.emeat phbysicalgesture you made, strik y.ur fist upon the bar in front of Mr. rE, was a threat, and I am surprised I h.et In a moment of impetuosity he did not ap crosm the bar and throttle you. If he bad dod so I would, of coarse, have -commlitted him for contempt of court, but it is due to his wonderful Ielf possession that I was not called upon to exercise that -eathority. The time will come, if tbis s-art of thing is to continue, when he who t Is summoned in court as a witness will fall I aseck upon the right every one has-I mean assault in self-defense." Whatever puolio opinion may be as to the merits of this partidular case, Judge Briggs's remaskL. as applied to the general question of the treatment of witnesc-e are i so sensible that we do t:ot hesitate t i pro -ouncelim a cighteens judge-, an "' excel- It lent old main." 'There ie, pa .tI eps, no ob jection to be cliered to the manerer in which clieite are often ignore d andl shame fully entreated by conunel, who arrange postponements and run up bills of ce's , ,without tise slightest defereuco to their convenience or their wishes. A la uerre comme a la guerre. B2t if it is in tre in Ctesest of peace that the horrors of law, like those of war, should be intensified for colm batants, surely they should be mitigated for non-combatants, and the witness is a -.Sen-ombatant. He is usually a disinter ated person compelled to discharge an no pleasant duty at considerable personal iu esnevenlence std expense. He is about as ladispensable to a trial as a bridegroom is "to a wedding, and he is usually treated 'with the mame sort of systemtrtic contumely. In the average American city the witness in a criminal case is pretty certain to be -committed to the House of Dltention while -the criminal is released on bail, and when eer he is delivered over unto the lawyers :als life is even as that of a partridge upon ---fthe mountains or of a rat in a pit. From the moment he enters the court - soombe is sat down upon and crushed out of shape. The jurors have boxes and the aterks have desks, but hb hath not where to sit down, unless among the odoriferous loafers who represent the public at thle -average tribunal. If he answers to Iis ' name inaudibly the Court regaras him in se light of an idiot; if loudly it considers Wm a madman; if he dot en't answer at all be is fined in some fearful amount. Gen ltemeu who devote their mastiff mitds-if se may be allowed the expression-to the o~esation of "dawgs" have a habit of breaking a rat's jaws or pulling its teeth esd delivering it over to a sophomore ter sitr in order t enconIage him to the future menaution of rodents. The witnesses serve line same purpose in the legal rat-pit The ongest lawyer avails himself of the apportunity to worry him without fear, to . maut and lacerate him as no man should 1do his enemy or his mother-ia-law, and to held him up to the jury and the public as S*fool or a felon, whtle at the slightest sign Sirritation the counsel throws himself upon the protectulo of the Court and the Court bide the witness r member where he is. We know of but ono judge who ever -ave his witness fair play-a wel tly mag Lateo w.,., whnte the crushed witnoes -tarned and r Tared ouet "SNonr of your - blaineas"-:.. It t was a pertuc'plet in the phrase originally-in reply teo an irrelevant and impterrient questiron, said mildly: "Witness do yon desre to change your aSppwer t" "No" "I wouldnr't lt I were The thought which occurred to Judge Briggs has ifrtquently occurred to us -that at soett period the witness will turn and rend his cross-examiner, and that a segular Sicilian Vespers will be organized La our courts. When in that day of wrath S:ad enlightened public sentiment the coun sel asks his next door neighbor, a tailor with a large family and a deacon of nnblem fahed reputation, if be ever served a term ins any State's prison for highway robbery, , the witness well neither blaush nor idly S.asperate himself, but will smite hie ma i£Auer with the nludignant umbrella of etragced respectability: and the man to 'bwhom in his peroration, the advocate - aefer as a perjurer, a body-snatcher and Sa devourer of the widow's substance, will, . la the language of Judge Brigga, leap over the Irailing and throttle that ornament of thes bar. BSuch spectacles would not be _. ·eemly, but they would really be no more enseemly than those which are too often *een in our coarts under our present eystem inherited from our British sires, :ad set forth with picturesque emphasis by -C-rharles Dickens in his celebrated report of Sthe great case of Bardell vs. Pickwick. - able gonog,an, who is smoking his f~ter-sopper cigar on the roof of a Broad wyetage, asks the driver whly the check atrap is like conscience, intending, of --coree, te entertain him withl thire time - honored explanation that it is an inward deck on the outer man.

APd.Y JS-71 Of UOf A;C'VL4Rs uOL& b We take the following extract from a recent b discourse by the tev. W. If. Peatt, Rector of a Grace abhuch (Protestunt Episcopal) of San P "st Francisco, Cal.: l: There are politicel fanatics, and edoestional l fanatics, and puilosopbical fanatics. and a scientific fanatics, as we I as religious fana tios. One of the most forgivable, but none Di L the lees destructive fanatisw of this age,. and especially of this country, is that of aeoularlz- oi ing the schools of the land. There never was w a- a sadder a.iatake of olvilzation. What is ed- t uk ocation It s, as the word imports, a "leading r, out" -of mau's most imp-,rtant posers. Is it ho sufficient to "lead out" the mental and in- negluct the moral powers t The mental ral powers will, to a great extent, ink-, care of Pt themselves. The news boys and street Arabs tb wge ithout any school education at all, are men- so ly, tally sharp enough ; it is the moral in which o Sa their deficiency lies. Mind and evil are in- nc led herited; moral power is not inherited, but mo- m, ng quired or imposed; and to this moral power w or. all education should first attend. In our of pt. present system it is altog.tber ignored. It educates a child in that in which he will edo- I e oat himself, if each he the craving cf Lis na tore ; and we exclude moral education, in lal and whih he needs above alil else. Is it true do b that men do the right because they know the we al right To suppose that they would was the so, is- fatal weakness t the philosuphy of Socrates. all of Is it not a proverb that "men know the right and yet the wrong pursuet" Is not the pan ie ishment by society of all penala sot based upon tir the admitted intelligence of the odenderr Ea in Would any court or Jury for a moment tolerate the se the conviction of one accused when he had no eec C- knowledge of what he did t the r. "How does the knowledge of the multi- pit d plioation table," says Herbert Spencer, "or an at qulckness in adding and dividing, so iootease Sithe sympbes as to restrain the tendency to re trespass against fellow creaturesm In what nt way can the attainment of accuracy in spell ting and parsing, etc, make the sentiment of justice more powerful than it was; or why, it from stores ot geographical information, per is severngly gained, is there likely to come in 0 creased regard for truth T The irrelation bc II twoen such causes and such effects is almost n as great as that- between exerc ses of the fingers and streugthening of the legs. One who sbould, by lessons in Latin, hope to gives kunowledge of geometry, or one who should ex e pect practice in drawing to be lollowed by ex l pressive rendering of a sonata, would be Car e thought fit for an insane asylum; and yet he - would be scarcely more irrational than are 8H I. those wn',, by oiscip'ine of the intel cottal t I faculties, eap1ct to prouinu better feelings. tv STie faith in lesson b.,,ks and reading is one of the superletliou of the age." (Spencer's N bici)logy, c::. l,). T'ro public have not yet Sseen atD: fete the mietake into which, with a e meet laudable intention, they have plunged, ir in thus seculatizing their educational instutn 'e tione. i 'Phs public pay an immense sum annunally GE t. for the privilege of imperfectly educating their Schildren--for a 3astem that aams only to make eu art rather than gool children. Instead of being a great leverof caviliaz tiLa, this entend.- H a ea comrun,n school system is a 4tit educational s r- f.,uaticism, miseducating the hbud and utterly Q- neglecting the heart, and In the end will de i- atroy society. Time ia wasted and taxes levied st toteach boys and girls to speak French and is German, anu play and sing, who need rather I d to know English, and how to work; and the all c.ries are being tilled with youth of both sexes with no moral ideas, but with literary notions h as extravagantly above their poesibhlitieg in life. for be roe end is to make them accnmplihedd ladies le and gentlemen rather than moral and good Al a- citizens. The system is too exteulded, too ex- - ra pensive, too long, too little moral for the beet r l, ends of society. But the people are In love with it as it is, and it pays small politicians to keep it up. The time was when each denomi nation had its own schools, and every child, rich or poor, who wanted an education and 1C was capable of taking one could does. Society re never has or never can stand this one-sided us development. That which it sows it mnst also lie reap. The experiment in the Roman Republic !is shows that the maximum of philoscphy was in the minimum of morality, and the minimum of ire religion was the maximum of despotism SWhen the people laughed at the priests they i owed to (a.,ar end the philosophers; society n- passed from sacred guides to secular masters, -if but as Christianity advanced, Despotism de he alined. of Is the intellectual training of the child' so th much more impurtant than the moral that .r- society must give to it the whole weelk, and then permit, not promote, its moral education a in one day only out of seven t It is idle to say ye that morals nmlst be taught only at home. hie lundreds of homes are godless. Toonsanda lie upon thousands of the children in our public to schools have no moral nor religious instruction Ild on Sunday ; but, on the contrary, are educated to to hate all moral restraints. What most society as reap from all this If it sow to the wind, it must reap the whirlwind. Can civilisation sustain itself by making a business of training the bead how to think, and not, as St. Paul he says, to " think on whatsoever is pure, honest, he lovely and of good rieport 1" a rer ___ O g ENGLISH ORTIIOGRIP'HY. (its te Nw Yok Worldl. d A nunrl'ir it English gentlemen, somn of ly : wholi are- st.olars of erninence, are ugitat or ing ftr the reform of English spelling, and - ere have lately been holding confi-rences with ] that object inl view. The point on which alll gree is that such a reform is desirable, s_ but as to how it may best b,' accomplished urn they are at issue, P'rtfesser Max Muller 1 t a crying, " is there no statesman in England red snfllciently iproof against ridicule to call p sth the attention of Pa liamnent to what is a an. growing national misfortune "--Mr. Lowe C for thinking that, as there are twenty-four C i-. letters in the language and thirty-nine rm sounds, fifteen new letters should be added ry, -whether by act of Parliament or other- r ai wise he does not say-Mr. lesaac Pitman , asseerting about tle same thing, except that of there are twenty six letters for the repre to sentation of thirty-eight sounds, while Mr. I ate A. J. Ellie believes that there shbould be a nd diference between the written and the < pIl, printed word, the former being reformed at a ver once and the latter being left to gradual L of inevitable chango. The practical objec be tion to the present orthography is that it a ore renders it needleely difficault for children ton and foreigners to learn the language, while eat the theoretical objections are mary, the res, principal one being that it is not orthogra by pby at all but kakography, and its preser t of vation is a hindrance rather than an aid to the study of philology. From the fact that V the agitation on the subject is at fever his heat we gather that, as the party in power ad- tevir agttates for change, our good old - ck- mothler tooguo is satisfied to retain tihe of asatus quo and to deal with the snj:iect as ne she has always dealt with stL-that is to say, ard by making concessions now and then, but Sri seldom upon clanorotus demand. Mean s," time Americans have cause to congratulate p the themselves upon the partial reception of the their spelling in England, for in a recent conference of tihe rolormers Dr. Gladstone called attention to the fact that in the ele- c dry mentary schools of several dietricts puptls c .e had been plucked for spelling " honour " ee without the a." Mr. Tito Pagliardinal aso mentioned the ease of a mother who "had a been obliged to give op spelling sthe sat word wirhouc a u oecause her Chm 1a been plucked for so setllog it." Thus wi see ho r reform is to creep in, and q~pt b pulled in, head and shoulders. Dr. Bicker abreadly observed that "a child migh learn English spelling, but no one who ha, learnt to think,"-a remark which wil commend Itself to everybody who haI noticed, as everybody most have noticed that so goon as he begins to think of the orthography of a word his brain is set in t whirl and the on'y help is direct consult - tion of a dictionary. We are inclined to believe that the mosl sensible and historically valuable sugges lion made at the conference came from the pen of the Bishop of Exeter, who wrote that he was in favor of the formation of a society with its membets pledged to use a new method, but it was essential to have no new letters and only a few critical marks or accents The Greek accents were a late introduction of Arietophanel of Byzsntium, some two hundred sears be fore Christ, and the Masoretic points in Hebrew were-at least in their critical re lations as marks of distinction-of conpar ati.t. ' fate. g. 1a, ,t uuh hvitn bueu introm dueed for reasona analogous to those which weigh upon the minds and depress the souls of reformers. Accebt in French are also of recent rise and development, and in English dictionaries they are used with en tirely satisfactory results. If reform in English spelling is to be brought about for the benefit of children and foreigners, it seems that we have in the suggestion of the Bishop of Exeter the readiest and sim plest means of accomplishing the work, and a method with which every body is, to a greater or less extent, acquainted HOUSE FURNISHING GOODS Respeotfally informs bhi friend and the publio that at his new store, 144.............
