FlENB Much eclat lias been made in the jire.-s and otherwise al the benevolence Of f.'aptain Eenunett in presenting to the' widow and children of the man whom misfortune made him the Blayer of, a sum of money stifiieient to care for and educate them. A.H this is contrary to the intention Of the Captain and without his wisn. lie did what he in his own kindhearted way thought was just and not for praise or with a design to compensate 1 for injury inflicted. No one but ho knows what anguish nis act caused bim ; no on but he knows of the motive that prompted him in his donation so no one but himself is the proper judge of its purpose. JIad the Captain been free to express the feeling that was in his heart, the donation would Jiave been made long ago but the cruel ty of fate made that out of the question and he was made to suffer from the Tenemon which he in no way merited. Had the pooile of this county applied the rule of the Great Teacher nnd only he that was. guiltless thrown a atone, the animosity which this case has cansM would nerver have been in ev idence and the caw wonld have been left to the judge and the jury to try. Jlowever, the milk of human kindness s more frequently, in puch cases, tain ted with thw bile of human weakness ftnd this case is no exception to the many.

I can not eharue von. I do charge yon that there js no evidence in this case ten ding to show that the respondent's an imal was lawfullv impounded. I Jut we have another provision of the statute upon this e abject ; and after some thought in the caje, I advise you that a man whose animals are impoun ded has not the right to take the law into his own hands. In fact a penalty lias leen presented by our statutes against any person who tdiall rescue any beasts impounded for any cause; and the defendant, in any action brought against him for rescuing euch beast, would not be allowed on the trial ofthe case to show that the an imal was illegally impounded. So I ad vise you, that while there is no evidence that this animal was legally impound ed.! cannot advise you that this icspon- iknt YVvnUl hare, Veen, justified in taiiug the animal hy force from the pound. Unt if you shall find, us is claimed here by the respondent, that all effort on his part to open the door of the pound had ceased when Finlav appeared upon the scene and upon the ground, then any previous conduct by this respondent in attempting to open the door, forcibly or otherwise, would not justify Fiulay in mnklntf any as sault upon this leppond'-nt. You will look over the evidence, gentlemen, and free how it was upon that point. Now gentlemen, there is very ilttle more necessary to be paid in this cast. Thrj resjiondent h; oileied evidence here tending to hov his good char acter. This is always comietent in a criminal case. It is a matter to be taken and weighed by the jury. The object and purioseof the law is, that when a man'is charged with a crime he may throw into the scale of evi dence his'previoua character. In a case of this kind, for instance, where a le ppondent is charged with a voilent act, like shooting another, he may otter ev idence tending to show his peaceable disposition and manner of life; the theory of the'lavv being that men do not break euddenly from good conduct. Yet it is a question for the jury. Some men do break over, and if you find the respondent guilty in this case of hav ing taken the life of this man without jusitficaton by way of pelf defense, it would be your duty to convict him, however good his previous character may have been. Butas bearing tijon the question of guilt, and as evidence in the case, advise yon that ev idence of good character may le con sidered in all cases where crime is charged. It is dmissible not only in a case where doubt otherwise exists, but may I) offered .for the pnrjiosu of creating a reasonable doubt in the mnids of the jury. The jury should give this evidence such weight as they think it entitled to under the evidence in the case. I'vidence has Ijeen offered nnd received by the Court upon the subjett of dying de declarations of this deceased, and use the word in the plural, becausn it is claimed that two declarations have ten made.if riot three ; pernnps three. Upon the subject of dying declarations I advice yon that the statement of mat erial facts concerning the case mnt lo made by the victim under s tlemii be lief of impending death, the effect of which upon the mind is regarded as equivalent to th" sanctity of an oath.
