We have consulted a number of lead
ing citizens many of them lawyers
and we have yet to find a person who
agrees with and supports the present
grand jury system. They all say the
grand Jury law should be repealed, and
the justices in the townships should be
required to file the complaints or fur
nish tbe information for the solicitors
to do so before the courts, so that a de
fendant would be brought immediately
before a jury controlled by a Judge in
open court, and if the charge could
not be sustained that would end the

Dejlb SiK-Tbinking a -. line from
the fish and oyster district of onr glori
ous old county would be welcomed by
you, tne poor man' friend, I took a
stroll around cur f little seaside village
to-day in search of what was going on.
Well, you are aware that the' great
number of pleasure, seekers we had
during the summer have all returned
to their winter quarters; leaving : ns
with only our. permanent residents,'
who are busily engaged repairing the
property that fared so badly during
the late stoim, and getting" everything
in much better condition than hereto
fore, assuring onr visiting friends that
every summer season i will nold out
greater inducements to the weary busi
ness man and pleasure seekers. Others
I find in the sounds busily in search of
fish, oysters and clams, with .which to
supply the market of your thriving
little city, and there bid them come, all
ye hungry, starving, poor, behold a
welcome feast! Others are engaged
upon their little farms, preparing them
for the' coming season. Wending our
way a little farther up the - turnpike,
about a mile from the PostofSce. we
find a new settlement already begun by
a very worthy, energetic little group of
our colored citizens, who have bought
lota, cut down trees and brushes, cleared
ana leveled tneir una, ana Borne nave
already built them very , comfortable
homes; Among these are Messrr. Henry

the reply was, "Where you

to molest or make them afraid. We
nest arrived at the . Poato3ce. This
we found second to none in the state
