THE DEFKCTS OF Till: JDET BYBTBM. I nm well awnre that some of tho purest and most Intelligent Jurors In tlio country are per- sons wild do not possess a property qtfaliflca- tlon, bin I allude to the exceptional cnaractcr nf tho legislation hero to show thut It Is lint like, that which obtains in every oilier county of the Btate. whero tho Juror 18 rniimrud to possess certain property qualifications. 1 don't menu in anything I have saul 10 make nnv charge agtrmm auy nnolic oflleer. I am Hiwaklnt of tlio, defects of the system ask exists, and of tbe facilities that aio afforded in llio protection of the rnoa of gicut political power mid Influence residing in tbe City, when charged with ibo commleston of offenses against tlio law of tbe country. When tho Jmleu u.id overruled a principal challenge 10 u Jnnir, a cbnlleuo to the furor was them m lorpoBcrl, win eli was died br the two first Jurors, and lln-rii: jurors bud u in tucir power to sal aside or admit ovory Juror that waa afierwnrd called, to whom a challenge to tho (.ivoi had been tnterpoeed. In my Judgment this should bo changed, and the Court alono should be made tbo tiihumil of An- other grout evil pjie tu In flonttnluc tho people to throe poremptorJjtinaHenirefl.
