County Court System.
Mr. Editor:?When I wrote my last, I still
thought of perpetrating one or two more articles on
the County Court System; but finding that it be
come necessary so often to call you to order for
misstatements, (not intentional of course,) I al
most despair of bringing you up to the scratch.
Your last article contains at least two misstate
went", m important particulars, which would have
required an article of ordinary length to set you
light. This perhaps results?is it so??from an
unfortunate habit of snatching up an idea at a
glance, tearing it to tatters, tossing it to the wind,
and then finding by your own modification that it
was a uian of straw of your own erection. My
friend, I would advise thee to mend thy ways in
this particular.
But seriously; I should suppose that you, a law
yer?a class of men proverbial foi "guessing," and
somesiy, for sauciness, but I don't believe it?
v;ould have been ashamed to moot such a point as
this. Now let me state a case or two of al
most daily occurrence. I meet a lawyer in tte
street?hut it matters not where. I say, Mr. Green
bas, 1 have a case in which I should be glad to
hear your opinion. I state ray case. Green-bag
scratches his head, looks grave, (a little confused
perhaps,) and says, 'Well, 1 don't know,' (quite
lively,) Met me see, 1 think it is so and so; or no,
on second thought, I think it is so and so, 1 shall
Lave to consult my books.' inters his office.
Looks at hisbooks. Thinks itis as he firststated.
Uefiectsauhile. Takes down another authority.
'Ah! here it is, ju=t as I stated it first. I thought
it was so?how coultl I have forgotten it?' What
p'Tlapshe never knew. Proceeds-'All right.'
Advises me to bring suit. Suit is brought?trial
?jary?verdict-?judgment. Wakesnakes! The
lawyer is floored?my case is lost?and pray, who
is the 'guesser' now?
But what is remarkable in this connection is,
that the defeated lawyer is just as indignant, and
auiazad at the ignorance and stupidity of tl e court,
or jury, (as the case may be.) if his discomfiture
took plac; in one of the higher courts, as if it had
actually taken place in what you are most gra
ciously pleased to term 'a guessing court.' Quere
won't you allow a poor, ignorant County Court
to guess a little too, especially when 'the doctors
But this same 'guessing' lawjer?and who of
thein don't guess a little sometimej, even where
simple folks would suppose tliev ought to know?
carries his case up to some higher tribunal. The
decision oftlie court is reversed. Quere:?If the
CAse was brought in the first instance, in the Cir
cuit Court, who did 'guess' in this case, the court
above, or the court below?
But again, we will suppose a case to have been
brought in one of the District Courts of the United
States---theGaines, cr lliidge case for instance.
Quere:?w ho did guess iu these cases, the Supreme
Court, or the courts below? or who did guess in
the Bridge case. Judges Taney and Daniels, on the
one side, or Judge M* Lane, 6cc., onlheoiher? Do
teilmewho? If you wish to'go to Congress,' 1
trow you will say. Judge M'Lane. But I fancy
ihere was a little 'guessing' there at all events.
And so on to infinity.
The conclusion of the whole matter is, that in
weighing probabilities, there must always from the
busy nature of the case, be more or le.-s uncer
tainty as to the conclusions to which different
minds will arrive on the same subject. Under
such circumstances?note this?a County Court,
inclined we may say in many cases, to look more to
the equity than to the lau> side of the question,
may be regarded, ? specially in such cases, of minor
importance, ?is ordinarily come under i'S jurisdic
tion, as quite as saje a ilepository of the public in
terests, as a "guessing" Judge of legal acquire
ments?and we have seen that there are such?but
prone from his professional studies and habits to
look more to the la to than to the equity side of a
Now, my dear friend, do'nt, I beseech you, do'nt
fjll into hysterics at the mere mention of late and
equity in this connection. If you do, I shall cer
tainly have to hand you over to the women. I
know you think that the law is "the perfection of
reason." Generally it is; and sometimes it is not;
and sometimes it is difficult of application even in
the hands of wiser men than you or I?I should
not say than you, for from the manner in which
you prououuee upon the decisions of Courts, one
m'K'ht suppose you were the Lord Chief Justice
Hale himself, risen from the dead.
Wc know that the law itself, as a general thing,
is equity; and 1 hazard tl.e assertion, that it is
sometimes equity, partially at least, to disregard it.
Would it be equity to inflict the penally of the
law on one man in this community for passing one
dollar bank bills, when every man in these parts
is in the habit of treating the law itself as a dead
letter? But lest I should excite your holy horror,
I will now draw to a close. One word: you must
not try to pat enmity between me and my friends,
the lawyers. This was one of the mistakes ol
your last. My heart is knit to thein as the heart
of David to the soul of Jonathan?and you know
that was some?that is to say, I love them in their
place. And now, if you will be a good boy, I'll
give you a sugar plum the next time 1 meet yob at
Parker's Saloon and "pepper" you no more?no

IJ-We have not time owing to the pressure of
oilier matters to bestow upoD Jonas more than a
passing notice, and indeed were we to look to his
argument rather than to bis play, we should find
nothing to which lo respond. As he does not
name our supposed mis-statements, we can neither
correct them or show his error, but may be allow
ed to presume that in this instance Jonas is like
the County Coutt, guessing, and shall leave him
to his habits.
As to the daily habits of our friend Jonas of con
sulting lawyers, we may answer his question in
two ways, first that he forgot to give his lawyer a
tee, (which all admit' brighteus up the lawyer's
faculties very much) or secondly that his case is
biought iu the County Court, and he is j-uessed
out of Court, and this readily accounts for the an
ger of Jonas' lawyer. We certainly, must, and d?
allow the County Court "to guess a little," nay
more, we allow them to guess all the time, and
know that from the very natute of things that i* all
they can do, and we uo not blame them for it, but
we do blame the Legislature for imposing upon
this Court duties, which Irom the very nature of
things, it is wholly impossible for them to.perform.
This has been from the first, and is yet our great
direction to the system, (for we have none to the
men, who certainly do their best) and we ask, ha'
Jonas answered it, or attempted a response? We
do not say thatthe Circuit and Supreme Court are
infallible, that would be absurd and contrary to
all experience and reason, but , we do say tliat
while these Courts may guess, the County Court
must always do to when a legal proposition is sub*
milted for its arbitrament.
But Jonat gels equity into his head and is fully
satisfied then with his own argument and hjssys
tem, thinks "the County Court quite as safe n de
pository oftho pu Wio interests as a guessing judge
of legal acquirements."
We moke no preteusions to the high position
which Junat thinks we have assumed, nor do we
think it requires a Hale to pass upon the County
Court system, though we doubt not that Jonat is
so wrapped up in the Couuty Court that he really
thinks no one less able than Hull can safely re
view its sapient action. Were we inclined to state
cases, Jonat well knows we have some in reserve
which might show off alike the law and equity
qualifications of this Court, and we might well
be excused for stating them alter his last article,
but we forbear as we have no desire to affect the
standing of this Court, but sincerely hope that
the Legislature will, at an early day adapt it to
the requirements of reason and the dictates of com
mon sense, and no longer ask of it the perform
ance of impossibilities. We can excuse Jonat'
kind promises of sugar plums, &c., as we know
he means well, though liis manner is rather child
ish, for a legal disputant, and one who is disposed
to father the County Court. Perhaps his paternal
feelings towards that Court, prompt his sugar
plum promises. We are duly thankful for his
kind promises to "pepper" us no more, but must
in all candor siy that had he not kindly informed
us of the fact, we would never have discovered
it, and we now, we presume, take leave of Jonas
and the County Court, strengthened by his arti
cles in the convictions with which we set out,?
namely, that this Court is wholly incompetent to
discharge legal functions, and that the Legislature
should not ask or expect of nien, who make no le
gal pretensions, the performance of duties, which
lawyers alone can perform, even though, accord
ing to Jonas, they may sometimes guess. They
may, the present County Court mutt; and that is
an important difference.
Sir:?It is an old saying that the Devil is
entitled to his due. However much you may
hate England, your English readers think you are
bound in courtesy to speak the truth of them and
their country. The following paragraph you in
sert from the Nashoillc Whig:
England vs. America.?The late quick passage
of the Collins steamer 'Atlantic,' has given the fi
nal blow to the supremacy of John Bull over the
waves. Each vessel of the now victorious Amer
ican line has inade the parage across the Atlantic
ocean in less than ten days, the shortest trip being
that of the Baltic, which occupied 9 days and 10
hours and 16 minutes, whilst on the other hand
theCunardeis have never yet inad : the run under
ten, theit shortest time being 10 days and 10 iuii.
Com are this with the following, from an Irish
paper of May 18th, 1S53:
Arrival op the Arid'a?Liverpool, Saturday.?
The Royal mail steam-ship Arabia, Commodore
Judkins, commander, arrived off Holyhead this
morning about 11 o'clock, and entered the Mersey
at 43 minutes past 3 r. m., after a magnificent run
of9 days22 hours and 21 minutes, from .New York,
a performance unprecedented by the Cunardliue,
and only excelled by the U. S. steam-ship, Arctic's
extraordinary passage in February, 1852, of 9 days
19 hours.
From this it is clear that the Nashville Whig has
made at least two false statements. 1st. The Bal
tic never made the run in 9 days, 10 h. and 15 in.,
the Arctic however made itin 9 days and i9 hours.
2ud. TheCundaider has performed the voyage uu
der ten, as the Arabia is shown to have done it in
9 days22 h. and 21 m., being3h. 21 m., more than
the Arctic.
Again iu the very same number of the Intelli
gencer from which 1 make the above extract, 1
find under'Telegraph News' the following?'The
Arctic arrived at 2 o'clock on Sunday morning'?
further down 'The Atabia arrived, (May 30 at 1
past 12, with Liverpool dates to the 21st.' From
the 18th of May, the date of the Arctic's last de
parture from Liverpool, to Sunday. 29th May, is 11
days, being the Arctic's time. From May 21, to
May 31, is 10 days, the Arabia's time. So that m
the last voyage recorded, the British steamship
Arabia, has beaten the U. S. steamship Arctic one
Injustice I expect you will publish this letter.
Yours, &c., EDWARD PURDON.
We do not keep a record of the run of the
Ocean Steamers to the hour and minute, our state
ments being derived from our Telegraphic reports,
and the Marine Lists of Eastern Ports, and beyond
giving the news, we lake little interest in them.
According to the above statement of an "Irish pa
per," it would appear that the qu'ekest trip ever
made across the Atlantic was by the U. S. Steam
ship Arctic, but according to the preponderance
of statements in favor of the U. S. Steum ship
Baltic, her tiip was still quicker, and an intelli
eent English gentleman who has crossed the At
lantic several limes, informs us that he ascertoin
ed on his last trip, from reliable authority, that the
Baltic's time was 9 days and 17 hours. Make ev
ery allowance asked, and the American vessels are
still the fastest, though the new English ship Ar
abia promises, with some show of success, to con
tend for the palm.
The paragraph from the Nashville Whig we
gave without any particular examination, only rec
ollecting that we had seen the same or similar
statements in several very respectable newspa
pers, and we do not endorse it a bit further than it
is correct. The intimation that we "hate Eng
land" is wholly gratuitous, and as we have not
either the pleasure of knowing Sir. Purdon or
recognizing his name among our subscribers (and
presume, therefore, that he is not a reader of the
Intelligencer) we do not see how he is prepared
to form an opinion as to our sentiments. For the
"land of our forefathers," we cherish anything
but hatred.?Ed. lutell.
Crystal Palace.?The New York papers of
Wednesday publish the Official Announcement of
the opening of the "Exhibition of the Industry
of all Nations" in that city. The 15th of July is
the day named. The Directors state that they be
lieve the Building and the Exhibition will fully
meet the just expectations of the public. In or
der to give ample scope for inventive skill in
machinery, they have materially enlarged the area
of the Palace, by adding wings to the extent of
nearly a fourth of the ground room of the main
edifice. They had hoped to open the Exhibition,
much earlier, and allege as the chief cause of de
lay the novelty and intricacy of the Style of con
struction and thft high standard of architectural
beauty at which they have aimed.
ICTThe ttlegraphic statement of the saving of
the emigrant passengeis cf the ship William and
Mary is fully confirmed. The wrecking schooner
Oracie, CapL Sands, fell in with the ship just as
she was about sinking, and rescued one hnndred
and sixty-four of her passengers. TLey were
brought to Nassau in a very distressed condition.
It would seem from the fact that the ship did not
go dowu immediately, as was reported by the Cap
tain on his arrival in New York, that he acted in
a cowardiy and recreant manner in deserting, with
| the crew and officers, the vessel at the first si.g
gestion of danger, and leaving the helpless pas
sengers to their fate.
OXTwo steamshps, of 1600 tons and 1200 tons
respectively, to run in the Gulf of Mexico., have
just been contracted fur in New York. The
steams, ip San Francisco, of Howland & Aspin
wall'sline, 2000 tons register, will l.e launched
at New York next week. The new steamer James
town, of the New York and Norfolk line of pro
pellers, to run between New York and New Bed
ford, is iu course of construction.

Fayette SmiNo, Penn., )
June 4th, 1853. S
Dear Mr. Editor: I am just in a refreshing mood
at present, and as I am located in a region where
the perspiration will not inundate the paper you
write upon?as is the case in some cities I know
of I will be charitable, and scrible you a few
lines from this delightfuliesort, whence I have fled
from the noisome dust and heat of the "city of mag
nificent distances."
In few parts of the globe, perhaps, can there be
selected a spot that unites in so high a degree, tlio
excellencies of a watering place, as Fayette Spring.
Regarding equally the poetical, historical and pic
turesque features of the landscape, no where can
there be selected a place moPb abounding in inter
est. Situated as it is on the majestic and health
giving Alieghenies, from whose summit the traveler
gazes in wouder and admiration on the great Val
ley of the West, retiring in undulating lines until
lost in the distant cerutian of the air. The scene
ry here lias no parallel ill any I have ever seen,
not excepting that for which the Hudson is so pro
verbial; and some places along the Youghiogney
river, within a few miles of the Spring, assumes a
grandeur that lame3 and baffles the powers of de
scription and commands the awe of the most im
perious soul. Among the curiosities immediately
surrounding the Spring are the Cataract of Cu
cumber, the Ohiopi Falls, Delany's Cave, which
litis been explored for miles, the graves of Generals
Braddock and Jumonville, Fort Necessity, Silver
Spring, and Dunbar's Encampment. History hasin
deed made consecrate this soil, lor here lies the first
battle-field of Washington, arresting the reverent
contemplation of the American, and the interest of
every traveler. Even to this day the ploughshare
of the honest mountaineer upturns many evidences
of that fearful fray where some of the best blood of
the English army was sacrificed by the rashness of
Braddock. No mouument of marble rears its form
over the slain.or burthens the sod, to tell "the path
of glory leads but to the grave," and no requiem
was ever heard over their wild and .solitary beds
but the wailing of the mountain winds ttrough the
tangled verdure of the forest, or the dash of the
passing storm.
One afternoon a party of us made an excursion
to this place. The sun was just setting when we
reached it, and threw a mellow, subdued and half
melancholy glory over a scene fraught with myriad
reminiscences of the Olden Time?a time wnen
our ancestors struggled for a home where we might
undisturbed swell devotion's song and drop devo
tion's tear.
Leaving iny horse, I wandered insensibly from
my companions, anJ setting down on a decayed
log, let retrospection and anticipation alternately
possess my heart.
1 mused awhile upon the mighty put.
And called the startling scenes before my eyes
That gave this spot to Immortality,
Then turned with pensive footsteps to pursue
.My solitary way.
I am not aware how long I sat there, but my
meditations were brought to an abrupt terminus by
one of our parly, a hale, matter-of-fact, boy com
ing up and slapping me on the back with 'Hallo!
S , let's hurry up our cakes or we will be too
late for supper.'
Ah! that supper! Oil that supper hangs a tale,
for the accommodations here 'are some pumpkins
(Don't 1 prithee, dt?ar reader, take ine in the liter
al sense of the phrase.) And then the appetites
we bring to our 'ruminations' are perfectly ravish
ing. The first eatable thing our eye cutclies in
its rapid circuit is fastenad upon with avidity, and
not relinquished until disposed of.
1 have said nothing of the water here yet, which
is the crowning merit of this resort. It has been
frequently analyzed by chemists and physicians,
and found Lt> hold in solution certain chemicals
making it an excellent tonic and alterative. To
cases of scrofula and ague its virtues are particu
larly adapted.
Present appearances betoken an excellent and
successful season at the.->e springs. There is, in
eluding the extensive improvements within a year
or two, sufficient accommodations for over two
hundred visitors, and several small cottages for
those who prefer the privacy of domestic life.
Tothoselfond of amusements, there is ten pins,
billiaids. bagatelle, ladies' bowling salcon, swing,
&.C., &.C., (all gratis for visitors.) Fish and game
abound in the neighboring hills and streams?
paths leading through the cool and shady vistas of
the woods, opening into the most enchanting clear
ings, atlord a delightful and easy exercise.
I cannot close this letter without giving you a
bill of fare for one day?to day for instance. But
no; I will not tempt you, or you will come down
onus here like an uvalonche, editors, printers,
typos, reporteis, correspondents, and (from which
preserve us) devils. Hut here is the bottom of the
page, so 1 must drop anchor and bid you Fare
well ! PHANTASM.
Dancing and Marrying a Sister'sjDaughter.?
The Presbyterian General Assembly, (New School)
in session at Buffalo, has under consideration two
questions, which have attracted general interest:
1st. Is it consistent for a church member to engage
in promiscuous dancing? 2d. Is it allowable for
a church-member to marry the daughter of his sis
ter?his niece? The first question the Assembly
answered promptly in the negative.
Dr. Cox, in reporting on the seond question,
thus presented the matter: The question, he said
was two-fold: 'First, is it lawful for a church
member to marry the daughter of his sister? Sec
ond, after such marriage is contracted, can the
person contracting it retain his standing in the
church?' His conclusions were thus stated:
'1st. That what is either lawful or positively
forbidden may be a different matter, and often is a
Vt rv different one from what is expedient.
'2d. No legislation by theohurch can b-nd the
conscience ofa man, and God does not forbid the
?3d. Nearest of kin should always be preferably
'4th. That the proper liberty to individuals on
the subject of marriage should be carefully guarded
and established, as well as all the violations of Di
vine laws sacredly prevented.
'5th. No forfeiture of church standing ought to
result from the mere circjmslance of the above
The Assembly refused to sustain the views of
the Hev. Doctor. The subject having been taken
up on Tuesday, it was finally disposed of by the
passage of a resolution almost unanimously, de
claring such a marriage contrary to the laws of
God, and revolting to human nature.
