Gentlo reader, (or if thou art as wild and untamed as Mazeppa's horse.it matters not) wast ever at court, as Touchstone said to the shepherd? If not, then indeed art thou to be pilled; and thou hadst better give ear to ono upon whom tho court divinities havo seized and forced into the presence of the elephant, to the. cud that thou mayst learn wisdom and cease to grovel In Ignorance. Wherefore, Oil. gentle reader, perpend I Tlio proper way to go to court is to step boldly in at the front door. The gurgousncss of tho reiic that suddenly bursts upon tho vision then, is enough to nppiil t tho stoutest heart. The trembling neophyte Is sorely put to It to convince himself that some one has not suddenly placed one of Allndin's palaces on the outside of him. It is nn actual fact that every window is gari'ished with itcurialn, thoroughly seasoned, and considerably mellowed by age. Court-house curtains are like wine and cheese, they improve by nge; or they are like blooded trotting horses, they improve un'il thev die. (Thou seest, reader, that my stmilles urc both urban and rural. Take thy choice). In the mellow sunlight that Is sifted through these strips of ancient calico, the lawyers walk in beauty like the night ol cloudless climes and starry skies. They are all superbly handsome men, hence the curtains; for it Is easy to see that one shade the more, one ray the less, had half impaired their lovliness. (Original) Thev flit to and fro in the dim legal licht, like blushes of love over the checks of innocence, which accounts for the innocence of lawyers as a class. Put of this, more anon. Xext to the curtains the must efl'cctivo deco. ration of this splendid palace, is the crotchet work of tobacco juice which covers everything t gives to everything the effect of a niagnili cent mosaic, wuicli mut be seen to ha appre ciated. High upon a throne of whito pine, witli his face to the east, like the Magi at sun rise, sits the judge, the monarch of all the cowhide boots which he happens to survt His subjects tire fearfully in awe of him, and their manner is subdued in his presence. Many of them are conscious ol rough-hrwu cjids (or means) and they know not what shape the court-house divinity may give them. The judge has somehow managed to acquire the sum total of human knowledge, and the horizon of his thoughts is as boundless ti the universe. He ;i "Sage erndit Terribly arched and acrjuiliue his nose." As niy friend Goldsmith once observed: "The wonder was and still the wonder grow, That one small head could carrv all he knew Hut now the judge's brow is darkened. Ho lias captured lSlosels whom ho is doctoring for graiidjurynien, ami it is no easy task he has un dertaken; hut he succeeds, for it is much easier to impress on a sinner the duty of punishing the sins of others, than to bring him up to tho point of chastiziii'; his own. The judgo pru dently directs their attention to foreign motes. and says nothing about domestic beams, and manages to get away with tlio problem. Then an unexpected difficulty presents itself. As Dickens savs by tho bee In the mutter of In dustry, tho judgo overdoes it. Ho gets too much grandjurv, and it happens in this wise. Everybody about tho court-houc having resolved to vote for the new constitution long before It was made, had never taken the trouhlo to read it after it camo into being. But It so happened that soimc one who had studied it strayed in mid hinted that a grandjurv, according to that Instrument, consists only ol twelve men. Tho Judgo got a copy of the constitution and gazed upon its wonderful provisions for the first time, and behold, there was the Asserted curtailment. He pondered deeply 'over many a volume of long forgotten lore,' and concluded that for ono term of court IS grandjiirors inluht count only as twelve men. He wus doubtless Clinking of the common law concerning tuilors. A still more thorough investigation convinced iiim thai his grandjury was running under too great a head of steam" and he ordered it to back up nnd take a fresh start. Ho directed his chief of staff to select ix of tlio best looking and return them to so eiety, and let the remaining twelve endeavor to count as twelve men, if such a tiling bo possible. Thus did the judgo perform tlio Herculean labor of a grand Jury, and what is
