A husbandman is seen in perspective upon a plain, in ibe uititude of holding mill diiving his plouorh. Both the di'.�ign and execution are nfipropnute and neat, and tlo great credit to the artist. On arriving at the square, the procession ascended u large and cotnamdious stage, erected for their ac-commtKlatioii, and turrounded by peii�, contnin-ing the iioinials for exhibition. Over the steps sw-ceiiditig- to the stage a white fljg was raised, bearing the iiniige of nn ox. The group in each of the npirliiients whs highly creditable to the county, and manifested an evident improvetnent since Ihe last aiinivcr-sary. i'lolli the size niid appearance of the cattle and sheep furnished >ati.sfactory evidence, that the iand.t in this vi.inily are by no menus of an iiiferior (Hialily as long]iing mauli commenced. The field of combat "as surrounded by nn imiDetise concourse tif spectators of both seses, in carriages, on It^r^eback, and uti foot. The neighboaring hillocks, hotise-topSj windows, and fences, were thiofiged witli tho�e who were anxious to wilne�s this curious and interesting .spectacle. It was literally an agricultural duel, as there were but two competitors for the premium. The teams had hardly started, belWe the sympathies of the multitude were visibly divided and enlisted in favour of one or the othei'; and the blacks and yellows were alternately cheered. The skill displayed in Ihe speed and neatuess of the work, clearly proved that each of Ihe aiitagonisis was master of his profession. As there was hut a moment's difference in the time of comjdeiing the two equ!il areas, and the work on both sides was done remarkably well, it seemed to be the gciteral opinion that both deserved pi-etniuras, . If the forenoon passed pleasuntly in the midnt of these e.'chibitioiis and rurd fetes, the al'teriioon was not less agreeably devoted to an examinatinn of the ariides of domes'ic manufdCtnre, deposited for public iiispettion in the Assembly Chamber at the Capitol. The specimens of IVm^ile ingenuity, skill, and industry were numer .n.^, and each excellent in its kind- Among them were fotlnd well-wront follow the Sheriff's description. Their Lordships would hear with surprise thati out of 2,500 freeholders iu the county of Warwick, there was only 66 designuted as Erquires-so that if the Sheriff had thought proper s.p to designate only 4S, the same men must always be returned. If the designation of Esquire, or Meichaut, was necessary to contlitute a Special Juryman iu some counties, it niiglit happen that it cuuld nut be possible to form a Special Jury at all. la the Act of Parlia- ment (the third of George II.) the o ily de-cnp- tion w-rfs, thai they should be free and I iwfnl he fiinnd nothint; niriiintned of esquire or merchair. The Lotto Chief Justice-" .Some dfsi-riplio.i is always added, even in the Cominoii Jury pa--nel." � Mr. Denman aimrehende'I that by lie wnrtU " Speci-^l Jurymau," it was intended ihm ihe Jnn-inati should be collected from -^ry special �lre of life. He w>t8 at a I'l-s t> find, ill any A1 I (il I'l.-liaraeiil, the power assumed by the .Vla:.t-iot lecting the Joi-y, Tin- LoSio CiHEi? Justice-" Can a persoi no-miinte wiihout selecting >" Mr, fJENMAfJ-" He might set aiide the names without exercising any choice, us the as.-ociaie o i the Circuit. The LoitD ChIrf Justice-" But observe tl d diffciem-e of the l^iiguigt* of the two :*titutes ; i: ihe one instance it is exjiressly ataitd that the iniiiifs shall be drawn by ballol." Mr. Denmah said, 'there w.4� n-.thing in ll;e Act of P.irliaui^nt which a.ithorised the iVKslfft) exercise a (fiActeUvm; mid, in fact, he cntiKi onlv . follow the dtfscriptioii of ihe Sheriff, mid so t'^e iiiiini'.aiion came to he in the Sheiitf, and not i.i the Master. He did not know how the adili ion of I'^squire was settled by the Sheiiff,; he believrrd. lliat legally it could only liejiy grant of ihe CroM;. In the iireseiit case. i 4 on i of i he 66'Special J n r\-men had been ou tbe Gr.iiid Jury, In nnswcr t� hi.s Lordship's qtiesiioii, of how the Master coul.i nominale wilhotit seleciitig ? he would answer, t!^t he intghl to leiive llie decision to chance. There KA1 so far a difficuliy, ilrat the L''gislatiire had not pointed out ilie mode in which it was to be done; but the officer t�igh>, in vaiious wny?, esfiblish a. complete iniliffereney, which wag all that whs con-tendril lor. Ill the case of the King agMe,i.-t Wooler, it was niidotihle'lly decided to the coiitrorv, but it was a (loiiit of greut iffl|iori8ii( e, aid wtll worthy of tlie furllier coiisideraiion of the Coitn. The Master said that i� one respect Mr. Dni-man was iiiist.ikeii ; none of ifie Grand Jury were on the jianel ; they were excluded by consent. Mr, Denman said they were in the first instance inrludeil. The Learned Counsel r;'ad Irotn bis nllidivils the objectiotii wlilth were taken before the Master, who refused 1^ take any names hut such as were designiied Esquires. The second |(oint was, that sUpfjosing the Master of the Crown Office was vested With the power, the Del'eiidante Chief Justicf.-" Does your-.ifH- d;ivit stnte that he knew ii -'" Mr. Denman-" They objected, and he refused to withdraw the names till he lind obtained the consent of the Prosecutor, but the Solicitoi's lo'.iseiit being obtained, they were withdri!*n.'* The Loud CHiEt Justice-" We are not informed when the fact was brought to his knowledge." Mr. Justice Bayley-" The time then makes a great difference. The Muster might think, after iiomiiiatinii, he had no power to alter it." Mr, Denman-" He selected the names, notwithstanding the representalions of the Defend inls," Mr. Jusiice BAYley -" And you, kiiowii\g that, take the chanit;e of going down to trial without making any application to this Couil." The LoiiB Chief Justice-And you let two Terms elapse ; uccording to the old rule of challenge to ihe array, to which this is similar, you should have applied within the Term." Mr, Denman humbly submitted, that they were not bound to coi^e to the Court ; but having objected at the Crown-Office, and having the right of challenge to the army at the Assizes, they had exercised that right, and the Judtje was hound to appoint triers to see if the returning officer had done duty ; but his Lordship refused, alleging, that in the case of a Special Jury it could not be ilone. ft was very true, that the Defendants might have come before tlie Court wnh affidavits, which the Misier would have had the opportunity of answering ; but he submitted that they were not bound lo do so. The Lord Chief Justice-" No doubt, if they wore entitled to challenge the array ; but is not that matter of error ?" Mr, DeN-MAN said, he did not find it laid down any where, that partiality in the returning officer was matter of error ; but he did find anothtr tribunal appointed. The Lord Chief Justice said, it did not follow as a necessary consequence, that they would not hear it if it were matter of error, Mr, Justice Best-" In a civil case it would be the subject of a bill of exceptions; and, therefore, in a criminal case it ought to be the ground of a new trial, more particularly as you cannot have the bill of exceptions without the consent of the Atlor-ney-Generrtl, which we ought not to ask you for," . Mr, Denman said he had also the affidavit of Samuel Prach, of Idlescot, who had been suinmoi.-ed on two o her trials, one summons \w rece veil i. \ the 5! 1st, and the other on the 23d of July ; bni i.. this cause he received the summons on the .'i I of August, on the very morning the cause was irird, wlieii I'.e was confined to his bed, but he immediately attended, though at the ha7.ard of his lite. He (.V]r. Denman) submitled, tlinC also was grrOd ground of challenge to the array, inasmuch as the Sheiiif not returned a foil panel to try the cause. The Learned Counsel cited the authority of L->rd Coke, chapter per Fays, that if the Sheriff returned less than the proper number of Jurymen, that ai the coiiimon law was error. He also cited the case of the Kmg o. Johnson, to shew that challenges to the array had been allowed. Tbe Learned Counsel said, there was one other ground OK which he asked for a new trial. He thenread froiu the affidavit of Thoiuaj Jonathau Wooler ;-- *' This deponent having heard that some of the persons named jsn the Special Panel were pT<'jn-diced ogaiusl lhi� deponent and ibe oiher Defend- ;
