TME PEOPLE AND TMECOURTS
In a Mississippi county not long
ago a mob broke into the jail one
night, took a prisoner—a white
man—from the sheriff and hanged
him to a nearby tree. The man
had been convicted of the murder
of a woman and was under sen
tence of death, but his lawyers had
appealed to the supreme couri for
a new trial.
This lynching cannot be ex
cused, of course, for it was a terri
ble wrong. But it can be explain
ed, at least to some extent. The
people, or a part of the people,
feared that the delays and lechni
calities of the law would be used
10 thwart the ends of justice.
During the same week the grand
jury in a South Carolina court
formally asked the presiding judge
to impose heavier sentences upon
persons convicted of violating the
prohibition laws. The grand jury
said in other words, that persons
convicted of this offense were not
being sufficiently punished.
These two instances are cited to
emphasize a fact which must be
clear to everybody, and that there
is a growing impatience with the
way justice is being administered
in our courts. There are too many
delays, too many loop holes, too
many ways by which criminals may
escape their deserts.
The public conscience is becom
ing aroused, and judges, lawyers,
lawmakers, jurors, and all who
have to do with our courts would
do well to pay attention.
CONGRESSS has been so busy
passing the buck that it hasn't pass
ed many bills.

NOTES FROM AN OLD DIARY. i CHARLES D. HOUSE.
By J B. T.—June 8th. 1860
Tis said that “that in a multi
tude of councellors there is wis
dom," this sometimes is true, but
on this special occasion a decision
was arrived at, adversely to my
fondest wishes, which throw a
damper over pleasant anticipations,
of large enjoyment, at a social
function in our neighborhood, to
be held on the day after to-morrow
evening; you see, the situation is
just this: 1 have a girl, (and this
is where the trouble lies).
Now, the committee of arrange
ments, for some reason, advanced
the date for the entertainment, and
this will cause the absence of my
girl, as she must remain away till
close of school, which is still a
week hence, thus, she will miss
enjoyable occasion by only a few
i days, this causes me to feel no
. further interest in the affair; yet 1
j myself, condemn this spirit of sel-
I fishness, w hich should be elimina
ted from every life, as it is truly a
bane to ones happiness.
It were better perhaps, that 1
give over selfishness for the good
of others, and subtract from the
total of life's pleasures to date, the
enjoyment which seemed a week
ago would come to me at this
lime. Well, no one on earth is
exempt from trouble, and 1 might
as well conclude to bear my por

edge, as one could imagine a cloud
to have, it's majestic appearance
