There was always enough of that sort of argiiment (o be met with wjauever legal precedents were resorted to, whatever be the nature and necessify of the case. Coini.-i;; down, however, to the period of the lt(V^iiiiii tly practised, and yet no cjoubts had then been raised as to its propriety anfl legality. The learned Solicitor then asserted (hat in the times ot seven Chief .Justices and twenty-two Judges, he had not less than twenty.one cases in point to offer to the notice of their Lordships. Beginning with Lord Cliief .Tiisticellolt, he comi. ntieJ with other instances from Lord Chief Justice Parker, l^ord Chief Justice Mansfiild, Lord Ciiiif Justice Kenyon, &c. up to the present (ime, during all w hich so many e.xcellent Puisne Judges had also sat on the bencli in that hii^h Criininal Court; in nil which cases judgment had been givin and executed wrongfully and illegally, if the judgment in tl}C present case were to be deemed illegal. He dwelt particularly on several individual cases, especially one in which a man was found guity of perjury before a Committee of the House of Commons on ("le Hindoo Election, and was sent to Hindon (o be set up-m (he pillory in that place, where his example was likely lo produce (he most beueffcial effects; and another, in which for a crime comniittcd in W,iles. the convicte'l person sutfered at Kenningfon, in Surr}. Ili another case of a distant crime, f>'r whieU the i cutiou took place .-it S.fc Thomas Waier^nu, Kent, and an olil instance of a man sent to Portsmouth to be executed for desertion or cowardice, because that was the place where the e.ieciiiion in ih\l sentence would probaT>!y be mo^-t exem; I iry and beneficial. IIu recited all the ca=es mentioned on Tnesdai^ by AIr,'.A,tloriicy-General,and contentfed for the strict .ipplicability of the more recent instance. But it \Va.s no't merely on th-.- casi-s he had cited, but on the general principles of the question that it ought tcj bo decided. The Court of King's Bench was the Chief Criminal Court in the Kingdom. It was so described by all the ancient, as well as modern Lawyers of repute, it was so cal!ed by Coke, who stateif its aatiijuity and its poweh. It had a ereat partof the ancient Justiclnrum Analiis. Its jurisdictiftn wis called capitdhis and gerieralLi, to shevr its ii'r�irefsality and general snperintendance. Hawkins, in his l*letts of'ihe Cfown (one"of the best writers and authofities) had firllj? �tatefl its extensive powers. If coiild, he contesiaed, be restricted by none of iho��re.�trictions which confined the powcr.� of infc-{vtt c*uniy Courts. Add irere the decisions of the teft .-i stone linlurncd on behitlf of his clients, if he had ca;iceived the possibility of attacking tie lejjaiity of the sentences pronounced upon (hi-m ? With respect to the demand of securities for good behaviour, tKe |)ractice wai old, and used in the best times. It was founded on rtason and j-.stice. It was absurd to la'.k of its operating as a p<r]R-. The p iiidividual, whose friends could nut (rust to.his good behaviour, evei;i after tne experience, '.hat had been taught him by his coufinemeiit. As to the difficulty of understanding what was meant by gool behaviour, he could not enter fully cnouqh into the motives, views, aod dispositions of ci-r-(al i persons to understand their difficulties on that subject. Good behaviour was what thry might not easily understand, and cared Hl'le to learri.-^ But they might easily enough learn it. The.re was h chapter in an elementary work, (Sir William Blackstone's), that wouM explain to them what was necessary to know on that subject. All (he Instances he had noticed were viewed by the wlhef side as too recent. Tliey must go up to higiur antiquity, they must mount up to the Conquest, or beyond that period. Every (hing he and his Learned friend had to offer was loo^ouw^ for the wo-dern school ; they would begin c5 ovo. The Learned Gentleman must know (hat they couM not investigate acGurately the nature of the sed-tefice. The whole object of this Appeal was to depreciate the character of cur Courts. Huma-nilao, for that was the name that was signed to ft libellous letter in the independent IP/ilr^ had considered the popular notion concerning the admini-sirfition of our laws by Juries as too exaiied. These lovers of freedom, in their new discoveriis, attacked tht instittilions best calculated to preservi it. The object was only to raise a ferment in men's minds, to throw di-ocrcdit upon the Judgesof tn*-laad, and to tak'from our wiseit estaWlslrmente that{):iWic re petft in which they had^faeefrii'rfd, sion of our rhiif Courts of Justice, and not the. speech of a miu to a mob in Palicc-yard, would influence th-tt decree which tbeir Lordship.'?, he trusted Wi.u'.d then, in their wisdom, give. After aniimbirof other remarks, the Hon. Gentlem-tf? conilmhd. Mr. CuTsnkD began hi."; 're[)Iy by animadverting on the conduct of the Attorney an;' SoIi ns wliicli was founilcd on a mistake, would be quite as willing (o reclily that mistake, on being shewn the error, as any that had preceded them on that Bencli. lie was confi. dent, that so far from this measure being consiiler-ed as bearing the chara6ier atuibuted to it, it must be seen as one which gave (lie best eind fairest op, portu'nity for biiinging this great question to an issue, by appealing to (heir Lordships en deriteer resort. Nothing more was ,a(tempted to be dona but what the law of (he land authorised, and what (he cases of the tndiyiduals required. While he should forbear from following (he Atforney General and the Solicitor Gcn6ra'l in (he field of declamation and invective into which they had wanckr-ed, he must express, in some degree, his gratiiu'.e mentioned I to them for the greater part of the speeches thoy exe- i had delivered. They put him in mind of a fable which was lately quoted by a peison of eminent alWiiies and character, in nb'icing the speech of a Learritd Gemlcman in some other pl.ice ; it was the fable of (he Ass, who went into a field attracted by a Ihisiie, but who went round and round about the thistle, fearful of touching it. The Learned (xentlemaiijin liie manner, went about and aboi4t if,biitwas cXircmely shy of touching on the principle of the question then before their Loi dships. He beg. ed to re-state to their Lordships, that the constitutional and legal principle he laid down xvith respect tolhcpowe^ oftheCourtof King'sBench, was this: that they had no right losend |). rsons into imprison-meotjin execution of asentcncepfanounccd by (hat Court, except to the jail of the c .unty where the offence was committtdj the jail of the couni^ where that Court sat, or their own jail. He main-I tained that no case had been cited to destroy the i truth of his positions. Ttie exceptions were not ; such zi coiild furnish a rule. Ilardly a case CBtjld i they bring to bacr on the subject that had riotl{c-i curred since the Revolution, and he contended i that if it was not legal to do so previous to fhit event,- that event could not poss'jbly make it legal.
