However much i May doubt the Oro piety and the Utility of the Mea sure heretofore adopted which imposes upon the person Holmy the Sta Tion which t now occupy the Obliga Tion of a dining the strand jury of the county upon the subject of their duties yet it has so grown into a Cus Tom and been so in As to preclude the propriety any objection to its continuance and if in the re Marks i shall now make the jury be unable to perceive a re Mote Brannu which they can have up on the subjects usually discussed upon such occasions the Only excuse i can offer is that the most important and at first future Stag filters by constant a petition become stale and wearisome and that the general intelligence of the Community has entirely superseded the necessity of this dry of duty and obligations. It is the Peculiar Pride and not vain boast of the Amer ican citizen that he Lias sufficient ing sense and Talent to enact Laws for the government of himself. Sufficient prudence and integrity to submit cheer fully to them when proclaimed and enough of patriotism to uphold the officers of Law in the pc for manic of their duty and Aid them in the punishment of such As would trample thai Law beneath their feet. The remark of that great apostle of american Liberty has often in this country been fully verified that this is the Only government where every at the Call of the would Fly to the Standard of the Law and would meet invasions of Public order As his own personal the reason of this doubtless is that every citizen knows that his Vole has contributed to the enactment of the Law and thai his voice either directly or indirectly has been heard in its promulgation. That it is found oppressive or unjust the same Power which made can repeal it and it would be treason against himself to refuse obedience to a Rule which he himself has established for the govern ment of himself and which he May Constitution of his come by her steady and unwavering if he amid the general w Reck resolves to tall with that ban Nerol a City still blazing and Stream ing Over to the american citizen the slavish doctrine of the divine right of Kings to Rule and Ivion Over the m iss of Man kind which Learned in the Law Hava Long Laboid and puzzled their brains to establish and promulgate is but solemn mockery and an insult to common a specie4 of idolatrous worship to which he can never held betting up of false gods to whom hum never , and before whom be will not Bend the knee.

He knows of no disc auctions in society except those conferred by honesty upon Merit. No superiority except that of Majusky but the Law. To the supremacy of its Power he bows with difference and respect and submits himself to its mandates be cause he knows that it is this Law which watches Over and protects his interests Fortune and life that it Loots with a Eye to the general Good deals blessings favors with a Liberal to persons.

In spite of the general expression of the Community too they commonly believe the lawyer Wor ii of Confidence and Trust. To him the profound debt secrets of his client Are readily entrusted facts and circumstances which no Eye hath seen nor ear and which he has scarcely ventured to utter to himself in private Ami which if made Public might ruin and disgrace him. Are fearlessly disclosed to his confidential adviser and deemed As Safe and Asse cure As if locked up in the recesses of his own bosom. indeed and hopelessly debased would that Man be who could disclose a secret thus conned to him.
