If mankind were to act in accord- ance with the principles oflaw as aid down by they should live honestly; that they should hurt no one; and that they should give to every one his there would be little need of Courts of Judicature, and much less oi Police Courts. If law wore the synonym of equi- ty, and its administrators raen ol inflexible integrity, few would com- plain of the "law its hard- ship or its dispensation. As now administered in some of our inferior courts, however, we would hardly say with the noble and eloquent Bishop Hooker, that :'Her seat is in the bosom of God, and her voice the harmony of tho nor, that "angels and creatnrcs of all conditions, with -uniform consent, unite in admiring-her as the mother of peace and the contra- ry. As to the origin of the genius or guardian spirit of this erudite pro- fession of law there arc various theories and stories. Some curious writers account, for tbe history 01 the tutelar snint in this wise: Thai Evona, a lawyer of Brittany, once on a time journeyed to Rome to en- treat the i'opc to give lawyers n patron saint. Tho Pope assured 11'im that every saint was disposer of to tbe other prosions. His Holi ness, at last proposed ttat Evona aliould go round the church of 6-io- and after 'saying a number of oue murias the first saint he laid hold of shoulf he his patron; to this the wise olc jurist agread, and at tha end ot'hii ave mctrias stopped nt the altar o St.. Michasl's, where hclaid hold of not the saint, but, unfortunately the devil tinder tbe saint's feet, cry ing out: "This is our saint, let him be our patron If evor this sain was law's patron, .we- ween long sinco been transformed to it; antipodes.- Notwithstanding all thi flippant and idle censure which.ha; been heaped upon law and the pro fession, men are prone to fly to ho as.for "respite ancVnepenthe" whet peril or disaster threatens or over- takes sick and well need a physician. Somo ofthe ancients, a> pledg> law, rppre sented their goddess, Themis, as the daughter of heaven and heaven, as tj-pical oi her o sphere o action.

To the casual or infrequent ob- server of law as administered in some of our police-courts, it must appear to a strange adinixture of incongruities, absurdities, and rn- jiisticc. The facia add trials do not seem, to sustain tho laiv, nor the law. to accord with-the facts. In short, this court is-verily a wonderful judieatory. It is the wisest of forums; it is "the unwisest of forums; it is the best of places; it is the worst of places; it is the -place for justice; it is the place for iujusrr tice; it is the gayest of is the gravest of places; it is the place for merriment; it is for1 contemplation. Some -writer has truthfully said that there is some- thing sacred in. misery to the great and good mind. Those who are familiar' with ;the. changeful, varied scenes, and 'tha peculiar illustrations of humanity j-nd nature in these courts, will tho nore readily appreciate our reflec- not.

He had waited for over 3 hours at the lower end ofthe .cases were 'being tried, without manifest- ing the slightest impatience. !Npw tho hurry and bustla was compara- tively over, he sedately approached She judge and asked him, in a con- idential undertone, if ho could eon- iult with him on a subject of "ter- rible importance." .'Speak said the little judge; Tm ready, to hear you.' Tma married he began, compressing his lips, to keep down a rebellious sigh, which thereupon its way through the. nostrils', "ndignant at his attempt to confine t, 'I am a marricd.man, your honor.' 'Well, sir, and what of said ,he little judge; 'so much the better 'or you if you have a good wife.' 'Ah falteringly ejaculated the poor man, 'I 'have been- married ten years; and 'ten.yeai-a of unmixed nisery they have been to me I loped to have lived in p.aradise, as t were; but when I think' on what I im, and what I used to'was, I I've thro wed myself 'away without Sufficient cause. He paused, sighed again, and then, taking out a ragged jandanna handkerchief, stood BI- "ently wiping his vein-swollen fore- icacl, until- the .judge .roused him' 'rom his reverie, by calmly eaying; My good friend, I am sorry for you, jut what' yon have 'I don't he replied-de- epondingly, 'but I .was- told I could get some relief by telling you that I was: married to .a and that she -was. my grandmoth- er.'

'I well tell you how itliappene-d, and I aope you can help me out of iny troubles. You see, I married to a widow, who had a daughter. My father, fell in lovo with her, and married her.
