KEUUt'lMt* JUKIE8. The abolition of petit juries is advo cated by a number, of newspapers, i being the opinion of many persons tka the institution has ontlivrd its useful ness. As a step in that direction the panel might be reduced one half, with a proportionate reduction of expense ana trouble, tbm giving nooppo (unity lor "eleven contrary men" to delay proceedings. In case of a majority verdict, also, if that innovation should become the rule, it would represent a larger proportion of the pane than as at present constituted and should the jurors resort to. throwing dice, or pulling straws in arriving at an 'honest verdict," there would be less lime and trouble in deciding the matter and, consequently, juries would not hang so olten. But could not a still greater improvement be made by re ducing juries to three men? The eduction of Coroner'* juries from 12 to 6 men has worked admirably and the oupposition Is that the same remits would follow like action with petit uries. tdilor Mo* Ttttgrafh: Do you know that I think it would pay us Alion merchant* to "chip in" anil Mibsidixu our line of ^learners plying belwe.ea hero and St Louis aud induct- hem lo cut down the fare to about 2&u the riiund tiip, and, if possible, gel an trier boat to leavu St. Louin for Aliuu ii bout uoon.
