BKITISII LAW OF TKLASON.
Trials for hih lrcaon have been
most rare in modern times, and tiio
whole subject ii invested with a bingii
lar interest even for the general read
From the liuKtitnin? of tho
cohuiiou law treason
and oimished a? a crime, the cause of
the crime always being some act of hos
tility against the Crown by home one
owing allegiance to iL With an un
written law and cormnt or subservient
Judges, it may readily bo imagined
what blood' injustices were possible.
The law.- of Alfred declared that if any
man plotted against the King, cither
himself or by harboring exiles, lie
t-hoiild be liable in his life and all his
possessions. Dining tho two centurieu
that followed the conquest, however,
trials for treason weio rare, and tho
literature of the subject irf scanty. The
King being merely regarded as a sort
of l'reimcr-IJaron, and there be
ing no difliculty in linding a
Haw in his title, treasonable enterprises
were frequent; per contra, when
IIiosh engaged in such enterprises came
to grief," they were got rid of without
e.cesive formality. William deHnuwe,
when King John invited him to .vend
his son as a page to Queen Isabella,
hesitated, and his wife declared that
hhe would never trust her child in the
hands of a man who had murdered his
own nephew. The result was that tho
whole family, having vainly lied to the
Irish wilds,was shut up in a room in
the tower and starved to death. Tho
punishments varied, but weio often
barbarous. Tim Karons under Mortimer
and Isabella hanged Le Dcspcnccr and
burned out I'M ward ll.'s bowels with a
red-hot iron introduced through a cow's
horn. The Norsemen had mi interest
ing way t insinuating an adder into a
prisoner's Stoniavh in a similar fashion,
while Kd ward III. when ho caught
Mortimer, his mother's paramour, mere
ly hanged him. In the twenty-fifth
year of his reign, I'M ward made a
creditable attempt at rciiKMrying the un
certainty of tho earlier law under which
counterfeiting was treason, whether
the King's seal or his coin weic copied,
and it was treason to "encroach upon
the royal power." The new statute
made it treason to compass tho sover
eign's death, to levy war against him,
or to adhere to his enemies, etc., though
nil such oll'enses had to bo proved by
an over act. "Compassing the King's
death," however, proved a term capa
ble of almost mdelmite expansion; and
when the phrase could not be stretched
to take in an obnoxious opponent, the
law was disregarded, or a new act was
passed for his benefit. Not alone was a
prosecution for treason a coincident
method of getting rid of a political op
ponent, but very small fish were scooped
in in the net. "Under Edward IV., one
man, whoo deer the King had killed,
was put to death for wishing that tho
King had the deer's horns in his belly,
and another was hanged, drawn and
quartered for making a pun. lie called
his inn the Crown, and his son the heir
to tho Crown. Tho Judges must have
resembled that loyal magistrate of tho
last century who sent a man to
jail for declaring that tho Prince
of Wales was born without a shirt
to his back. A special statute of
Henry VIII. mado it treason to believe
the King's marriage with Anne of Cloves
valid. The statute of Edward VI. re
quired for the conviction of one charged
with treason two sufficient and lawful
witnesses, but thisnrowsion was eluded
in a dozen ways, itacon, when Attor-noy-Ceneral,
convicted the decrepit old
1'arbon Peaeham of treason by bringing
in a sermon found in his study wliich
had never been preached more by
token, tho great philosopher stood by
him when lie was nicked to c-torta
confession. Tho punishment of treason
in the "good old times' was something
too horrible almost for description. Tho
average reader has a mild and very er
roneous idea of what "hanging, draw
ing and quartering" really meant, but
he, will be instructed if he reads the his
tory of tho Jesuit Mallard's conspiracy
in favor of Mary Queen of Scots, in
which ho enlisted Anthony Babington.
Chidiock Titchbourno and other gen
erous young men; or turns to tho recital
by Mrs. Elizabeth Willoughby of tho
execution of the Jesuit Hugh Green, in
1612. "The hangman," we read, "cither
through unskillfulness or for want of a
sufiicient presence of mind, had so III-
performed his first duty of hanging h
that when ho was cut down ho was p
fectly sensible and able to sit upright
tipon the ground, viewing tho crowd
that stood about him. The person wiio
undertook to quarter him was one Bare
foot, a barber, who, being very timor-
vu tvuuu iiu iuuuu no was to attack a
living man, it was near half an hour be
fore the sufferer was rendered entirely
insensible of pain. The mob pulled at
the rope and threw the Jesuit on his
back. Then the barber immediatelv
fell to work, ripped up his belly, anil
laid the Haps of skin on both sides, tho
poor gentleman beiug so present to him
self as to make the sign of tho cross
with one hzmd. Duriug this operation
the writer of this kneeled at the Jesuit's
head and held it fast between hr hands.
His face was covered with a thick sweat,
and blood issued from his mouth, ears
and eyes, and his forehead burned with
so muck heat that she could scarce en
dure her hand upon it. Tho barber be
ing still under a great consternation"
When Titus Oates hatched the Popish
kt of 1678, tho infamous Chief-Justice
Saggs aided tho perjurer most vigor
otisly. No seeond witness appearing
whea.tke Jesuit Wiiitbrcad was put u
.ea.trialv Scrosrgs discharged the jury
toeaable the Crown to supplement its
evidence, and, on. a subsequent occasion,
Whitbread was duly convicted and ex
ecuted. ButScroggs was outdone by
Jeffreys, when Lord William Rus
fel aacl Algernoa Sidney were brought
"before him in 1683, on a charge of com
plicity in the alleged Bye-house plot.
The jury was constituted illegally, and
be was 'refused the right to challenge,

AJIcc Lille to bo burned alive, the sen
tence being with difficulty commuted to
decapitation. Elizalwlh Gaunt wa
less fortunate, being burned to death at
Tyburn in October, 1685. When there
was not evidence enough for Scroggs or
Jeffreys, tho crown could always pas a
bill of attainder and hare Parliament
declare A or I guilty of high treason,
and therefore be executed, with ex
tinction of his titles and confiscation of
his property. William of Orange made
hato to do'honor to HusseM and Sid
ney's memory, yet he wa the last
sovereign to employ a bill of attainder.
Thus ho sent Sir John Kenwick, a
Jacobite, to the gallows, it being hope
less Ui indict him with one witness to
the overt act. The bill vas with diffi
culty got through Parliament, Lord
Derby opposing it elo picntly in the
Iords. In thoso days the prisoner was
hanged for half an hour; then his heart
and liowel? were torn out and humed:
then his body was quartered, and the
four fragments and his head were stuck
upon spikes in different parts of the
country. After the Jacobite rising of
17-15, Townley and Flatchcr were thus
di-membered. their heads being set up
over Temple Bar, where Samuerilogers,
the banker-poet, remembered seeing
them. Thoy rotted away about the time
of our Declaration of Independence.
The last persons executed in England
for high treason were Arthur Thistlo
wood and his four companion'1, hanged
at the Old Uailey. May 1, 18J0. for the
famous Cato street conspiracy to massa
cre the Ministers at dinner and carry oil
the heads of Castlereagh and Sidmouth
as special trophies in bags prepared for
the purpo-e. They were the last pris
oners confined in tho tower, ami tho hut
beheaded after death. By the way,
hanging, drawing nnd quartering was
inaugurated in England in 1241, when
William Mnrie, the son of a nobleman,
suffered for piracy. September 21, 1819,
William Smith O'Brien, convicted of
high treason, was
cntenced to bo
hanged, and then
tereil. A similar
beheaded and quar
sentence had been
passed on John Francis, in June. 1842,
J for the attempted murder of tho Queen.
Mr. U linen rather nonplused tho au
thorities by objecting to have his death
sentence commuted to transportation, on
the ground that the Queen had no pow
er to substitute one penalty for mother,
and it was deemed expedient to pass an
act of Parliament to remove tho doubts
excited as to the legality of the act of
In old times the fact that a true bill
for treason had to bo found by a (Jnind
Jury saved many a noble "politician
whose head would have fallen once ho
was before the lords. Two witnesses
were needed as to the overt act, and tho
prisoner was entitled to a copy of tho
indictment and the jury panel a certain
time before his arraignment. But ac
coiding to the act of 1800, where tho
overt act is in the nature of a direct at
tempt on the life of the sovereign, the
trial is to bo conducted in t lie. same man

Burled in a Trance.
A New Brunswick (N. J.) dispatch
says: In the latter part of March a man
named James Gillilaud, residing here,
died after a brief illness. Ho was a car
pot weaver by trade, and was well
known in tho neighborhood. After
death his house was visited by sympa
thizing friends, who were anxious to
look once more on their departed com
rade. There was a peculiar appearance
about the body, which was tho subject
of comment, and many of tho visitors
refused to believo that life had depart
ed. Even after the body had been pre
pared for burial and inclosed in a coffin
there was none of the ordinary appear
ances found in a corpse, and Oilliland's
friends were gre.itly agitated over tho
matter, many of them believing that ho
was only in a trance. So strong was
this belief that physicians were called
in to make an examination. They
found the body slightly warml and hav
ingnnneof the chilly feeling to the touch
which is always found in dead bodies;
tho face was somewhat Hushed, and tho
supposed dead man resembled a person
in a deep sleep more than amass of life
less clay. The doctors, however, after
a critical examination, pronounced Gil
lilaud dead, and the funeral took place
the following day, the interment being
in tho cemetery. Last week a brother
of Gillilaud came to this city to mako
an examination, having heard that
there wcro suspicions that the man was
not dead when burial took place. He
proceeded to the cemetery yesterday in
company with a man to "reopen the
grave. 'When tho coffin was reached
the lid was carefully removed, and to
the great horror of the man he dis
covered indubitable evidence that his
brother had been entombed while in a
trance, and had afterward recovered
consciousness. The body was found
lying on one sido with the faco terribly
scratched, as though douo while in
agony. It is thought that the unfort
unate man. on recovering conscious
ness, endeavored to freo himself from
his coffin, nnd that a terrible struggle
for life took -place, the hands being
horribly .lacerated, while the face plain
ly showed signs of terror. The body
was immediately rcburicd. Last even
ing the family of the unfortunato man
refused to give any information on the
subject, and the cemetery authorities
were likewise reticent.
Must Hare a Scotch Hammer.
A correspondent writes of an amusing
incident which occurred at Oneonta, N.
Y., and says that he knows all the per
sons referred to, and can vouch for the
truth of it. "A carpenter and joiner in
Oneonta said to his fellow-workmen:
As soon as I can get a chance, 1 am
going to send over homo to Scotland
and get a claw-hammer, one that I can
work with; I can't get a decent ham
mer in America.' About this time a
friend of his was going back to the auld
sod,' and ho commissioned him to go to
the best hardware store in Glasgow and
get a carpenter's claw-hammerthc best
he could find, regardless of cost. In
due time the friend returned, bringing
the desired tool. The party gathered
around him, including some o? his fellow-workmen,
and ne proceeded to
open the package, in the meantime
making tho remark: ril show you
something to make your eyes water, as
the friend had assured him that he had
brought him the kind of hammer used
by the best workmen in Glasgow. He
affect?onately unwound the wraps, and,
as he took the tool and handed it orer
to his friends, he said: There, look at
that!' One of his friends did so, and
read the trade-mark on the hammer:
Made at Norwich, X. Y., U. S.' There
is no more bragging about Scotch ham
mers." A small, very black negro boy by
accident threw his top through a large
pane of glass in one of the front windows
of Mr. Green's sewing-machine agency
in the Cater block. As soon as he laid
hands on the oftending toy, he grasped
it with steel spinner outwards, and beat
himself fiercely over the forehead and.
head with it until blood came, when he
threw the top as far away as he could
and told the owner of the store that ho
"didn't go to break the window." His

paid him a drilling he-side'. Two or
three days later he discovered that lie
had been overcharged by three shill
ings. Thus it cot him jut one dollar
of stealings and fees to leani to cat
breakfast at home. This same man
made a nice row in a restaurant at din
ner one night when he first arrived. He
had been warned to keep on the look
out for overcharge, arm by tho tim
his moal was finished he was in a good
mood for that sort of a thing. He had
arrived in tho restaurant at live, o' clock,
and had called for a bill of fare. It was
printed on a sheet of paper jut the f'uu
of a page of the Chicago Xeui. Half
the items were in red ink. This indi
cated that they were special dishes for
that da. He had soup, and ordered
boiled mutton in red ink. Tho wait-r
consulted with the cook, and said the
mutton would be done in three
minutes. The stranger waited. In ten
minutes the waiter came back and said
tho cook had concluded not to serve
any moro mutton that day. The Amer
ican said he would have a lamb chop
also in red ink. Another consultation,
and another disappointment. There
were no Iamb chops. Would he try a
fillet of beef, rare? Yes, he would.
Thc waiter looked rather ashamed as he
came back this time. He had no need
to speak. Tho truth was written on his
face. There was no fillet. The Amer
ican was angry, but calm. He said:
"Bring me anything you've got in

He received a fair sort of dinner,
but ho was out of sorts all thc time. It
is no laughing matter to work one's
imagination up to ono thing and get an
other. When it came to making out the
bill you may image how carefully hu
watched his man putting down the
items. As the waiter wrote, he talked.
This is how it ran:

John Flarharity, an engineer on a

out of the yards, the strop connected
with the lever broke, and he lost all
control of tho engine. The engine
was a new one and in good condition,
and iie says he never can explain just
why or how it happened. Kunniiig
at a tremendous speed down grade, he
expected every moment to be dashed to
"It was an awful moment," said
Flarharity, " when I found that the en
gine would not respond to the touch of

the steam blinded me, and everything
seemed to conspire to hurl us to de
stniction." " How heavy was t'?. grade?"
" One hundred nnd'eighty-fivc feet to

First Cane U Be
The idea of employing weapons for
assault or defense was a logical result
of thc first contests that took place be
tween man and man. In these contests
the strongest man with his native weap
ons his fists was unconsciously tho
father of all arms and all armed
strength, for his weaker antagonist
would earlv seek to restore the balance
of power between them bv the use of.
some sort of weapon. The shorter
armed man lengthened his striking
power by the use of a stick, and found,
after a time, tho help its leverage and
weight afforded him. The first case in
which the chance-selected, heavy-ended
stall or club showed that weight or
hardness had its value, was a first step
toward furnishing it with a strong head.
Hence the blow of the fist was the
forerunner of thc crushing weapon. In
the same way the pointed tick became
the lance or dagger; ud the thrown
shaft, helped, asknowledge increased,
by the bow or "throwing-stick." was
the precursor of the dart and arrow.
The character of the first weapons was
largely determined by the nature ot the
materials from which they were de
rived, and their shape partly from this
and partly by copying the forms of iko
weapons "possessed by the animals the
primitive men slew. Hence arises Sac
general similarity in character and
shape of the earliest tools from all
parts of the world. Popular Science

But the great preponderance, given to

pay it all out for articles nhi.h could be

the planter confevs their conviction of
the improvidence of this method, but
persist iu the practice, nevertli'di-xs. In
various parts of the Mmth there are vast
tracts of as line corn land a can be
found on the continent, and there is no
reason whatever for not cultivating in
these regions all the corn needed in the

planters. So, too, of the ork, or bacon,

Glanders, as everyone knows, 1 a
highly contagious disorder of solipcd.
and is now very prevalent in the L'uited
Kingdom. Iu London it is especially
so, and causes great lo.es to owners of
horses. It is readily communicable be
tween the hor-e ami as .species, lcs.s .so
between these and other iqu'eio. but
man is frequently infected. Jt is a most
repulsive malady, and is ineurab'e.
Very much of our knowledge respecting
it is entirely due to experiments on liv
ing animals. Not infrequently it mani
fests ile!f in a chrome form, and with
such vague swuptonis (though it is,
neverthcit"?, as contagious as if theo
were well marked) that tho most .skill
ful eieriiiary surgeon cannot tell for
certain whether it is the disease or only
an ordinary catarrh. If it le glanders,
then to allow the animal to live is to
endanger the life of every horse and
man who come in contact with it: while
to destroy it, if the malady is not con
tagious, would be cruel and unneces
sary. When time is an object, or facili
ties for isolation are not present, then
test inoculation must be re-orted to.
For thc purpose a worthless horse, or,
better still, an ass, is inoculated, and a
few days suffice to decide whether
glanders is present. If the result of thc
inoculation is afiirmative, the experi
mental animal manifests smptoms,
generally at the seat of inoculation,
which cause it little if any discomfort,
and it is at once destroyed, as isnlo
thc suspected horse. -By this precau
tionary procedure many hordes, jwssibly
thoc of an entire regiment of arnn
corps, may be saved from peril, and
human lives preserved from a loath
some and fatal disease. In elucidating
the processes of disease, in framing
preventive measures, in investigating
tho spread of contagious disorder, as
well as in perfecting modes of surgical
operation, experiments on living creat
ures are absolutely necessary, for their
own interests no less than for thoo of
mankind. Veterinary medicine and sur
gery are based on hurnanily no less than
on utility, and their aim is to remove or
alleviate pain among flic animals placed
under the dominion" of man. By ex
periments in pathology, disease and
mortality have been vastly diminhed.
and continued experiments in the same
direction will cau-c further diminution.
If mankind Iwncfits. o do animals. A
discovery which will avert dieaM; in
one will probably do so in the others; 5
every advance of knowledge is a boon to
alL To prohibit resort to experimental
pathology would be at once to doom
creatures which we arc bound to protect
to the enduranco through all time of
tcrriblo Miffering from disease that
might otherwise be vanquished. Ab-
nomng cruelty in ever snape, anu
desirous of abolishing it by every pos
sible means, I must nevertheless "depre

Repairing the ImpIeatenL.
A tool or implement should never L.
put away after being ued. without be
ing put into good condition"and made
ready for the next season's work. But
that is not always done, sad when it is
not, the repairs should bo attended to at
the first part of the season. In roany
secttons where the spring work b al
ready under full headway, it is now too
late to get the full adt outage of fixing
up things, but the principle of better
late than never" holds good. It b both
irritating and unprofitable to use a plow,
cultivator, hasrow or any other imple
ment that b giving out every few days,
and, perhaps, docs not work" well any of
the time. Under such tarcurnstanccsf
there is no better time than now to stop
and hare the implement repaired. Make
a business of it- Look carefully over
everything, and if there b a bolt", or a
screw, or a nut or handle that needs re
placing, have it dose and the trouble
and loss of time that it may save will
vastly repay the effort. Western Ettrei.
